BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
A 5-year-old Raiford girl
was run over by a Union
County school bus and was
pronounced dead at the
hospital Tuesday afternoon.
At approximately 3:19 p.m.,
a,911, call came into the county
about the accident.
School bus No. 12, driven
by Beverly Tyson, 38, of
Lawtey, was headed north
bound on Northeast 1301h
Terrace-the road that
branches off to the right by the
Raiford Community Center
before the intersection of C.R.
229 and S.R. 121.
After 5-year-old Brittany
Carney got off the bus, she
crossed the street in front of
the bus, headed toward her
home on the left side of the
street. Tyson. thought Brittany
had cleared the bus, said Lt.
Bill Leeper of the Florida
Highway Patrol, but as she
started to pull forward, she felt
a bump. She stopped the bus to
find that she had run over
Brittany.
The girl was carried by life
flight to Shands University of
Florida in Gainesville where
she was pronounced dead,
Leeper said.


Tyson was so distraught by
the situation that she had to be
taken to Shands Starke. No
word on her condition was
available as of press time.
At the time of the accident,
bus No. 12 still had
approximately 30.students on
board, Leeper said. Another
bus was called to transport the
children home.
Neighbors all, rushed to the
bus quickly after the incident,
most believing something was
wrong with the bus or that it
had hit an animal.
Michael Thomas, 48, said he
heard the noise and ran
outside.
He said everyone rushed out
to help and that rescue
personnel was quickly on
scene.
"I wouldn't wish that on
anyone," said Thomas, who
noted that his own daughter
wa.s pregnant. "My heart goes
out to everyone involved."
Thomas remembered that
Brittany was always laughing
and smiling when he would,
see the little blonde girl
playing outside or when she
was getting off the bus.
"She was a sweet, little girl,"
he said.
Thomas said the family had


always been "good neighbors."
"They lost.a little angel."
Junior Melvin, 49, who was
at the scene said the children
on the bus said the little girl
bent over to pick something
up, but Florida Highway Patrol


On Wednesday, Feb. 21, Alvin Wilkerson (left) made a court appearance before
Judge David Reiman at the Union County Courthouse. Wilkerson is shown leaving
the courthouse with his wife and attornies after Reiman granted him 90 more days
to prepare for a trial.


UCHS student found,


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
A 15-year-old Union County
High School student was found
off-campus with a handgun
and then arrested Feb. 21, after
previously being on campus
with the weapon.
According to a Union
County Sheriffs Office report,
Deputy Ray Shuford was
patrolling the area around
UCHS and Lake Butler Middle
School when he spotted a male
teenager walking near the
baseball field. Shuford
recognized him as a UCHS
student.
Shuford then stopped the
student at Sprinkle Field,
located at the corner of S.R.
121 and C.R. 231.
As the student approached
the deputy's vehicle, he
dropped something on the
ground. After questioning the
student, Shuford said he exited
his patrol vehicle and found a
small revolver lying under the
vehicle.
The student said he used the
weapon for protection because
people did not like him,
according to the report.
Shuford arrested the student
and confiscated the weapon for
evidence. The student was
transported to the Union


County Jail without any further,
incident.
Following the arrest,
Shuford went back to UCHS
where he met with the.
attendance clerk, Tana
Reynolds, and the assistant
principal, Russell Larramore.
The sign-in sheet reflected that
the student..had signed in
around 11:20 a.m.
Larramore said he escorted
the student to his classroom
and assumed he went to class,
according to the report.
In a later interview with the
student at the jail, Shuford said
the student said he got up late
for school, walked to ,UCHS,
signed in late and went to
class.
There, he said he was told
by his teacher that he would
need an admit to be allowed in
class. Larramore took him to
the attendance office, where
the student got his admit and
started walking back to class.
This is when he walked off
campus and was spotted by
Shuford, according to the
report.
Shuford described the gun as
a blue steel, .22-caliber short
revolver and said it was not
loaded.
UCHS Principal Alex
Nelson said in a written


statement Monday, "No
students or staff were
threatened or in danger at any
time. We have no reason to
believe that this is anything
more than an isolated
incident."
"We are thankful it was
discovered and resolved within"
a 15-minute period. Officer
'Shuford and the Union County
Sheriffs Office executed their
jobs with speed and precision.
The students and staff
remained calm and attended to
their business without
disruption."
Superintendent of Schools
Carlton Faulk echoed these
comments in an interview
Tuesday. He said the student
did not make any threats while
on campus nor had he made
any threats in the past.
He added that out of
approximately 125 days of
school this year, the student
had missed 70.
"This kind of behavior will
not be tolerated," Faulk said.
"He will no longer be a student
in Union County."
Faulk also thanked Shuford
and the sheriffs office for their
quick and persistent work for
the school system.
Nelson said, "Our number
one priority is student safety.


could not confirm this.
Melvin and Thomas both
said they will turn to God and
pray for the family, the
children and the bus driver.
About the girl, Melvin said,
"I know she's ,in a better place,

The truck driver charged in
September with the deaths of
seven children in the 2006
crash on S.R, 121 was granted
90 more days to prepare for
trial when he appeared in court
Feb. 21.
Alvin Eugene Wilkerson of
Jacksonville appeared last
Wednesday in court, where his
attorneys asked for, 90 more
days to prepare for trial.
Wilkerson's lawyers cited
the large number of witnesses
in the case as reason for the
motion.
The state had no objections,
and County Judge David
Reiman granted the
continuance. Wilkerson also
waived his right to a speedy
trial, which he is entitled to by
lavw.
Another case management


We have implemented several
measures to insure student
safety. We will continue to be
vigilant in maintaining a
secure environment for our
students at UCHS.
Faulk said, "I would
encourage all students, family
members and parents if they
have any information or
feelings of something that's not
right, we encourage them to
call the hotline."
Faulk was referring to the
school safety hotline, (877).

BY MARK I CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Local a-encies have their
eyes on a grant from the U.S.
Department of Justice Office
on Violence Against Women
that could improve services for
abused women and children.
Winnie Holland,
administrator of the Bradford-
Union County Health
Department, passed news of
the arant alona to other
agencies in the community
after seeing it come across her
desk.
The cy ra n t requires
involvement o f I a w
enforcement and the state
at torney's office, which has
been received in both Bradford
and Union counties. Peaceful
Paths, Communities i n
Schools, the Department of
Corrections and faith-based
organizations like First United
Methodist Church and the
Bradford County Fai th.
Community Center have all
expressed interest in partnering
with the health departments.
I f's really been a
.collaborative effort," Holland
said.
Applicants requested
$497,000 over a two-year
period through the grant


program, which does not
require that counties contribute
matching funds. The money
will pay for the services
provided, with involved
agencies contribution, staff to
what has alieady been named
the Bradford-Union Assistance
Center for Violence
Intervention.
It is conceived as a one-stop
center for victims of sexual
assault, domestic violence,
dafine, violence, stalking and
child abuse. There they will be
able to access services from
law enforcement and
counselors, and receive
resource referrals for services
provided outside Of the center.
The money will also train
n*urses in forensic
examinations, so partnerships
are beine, formed with Shand*,
Stake and Lake Butler
Hospital. That means victims
of assault won't have to travel
to Gainesville, said Holland.
. It will also pay for
education, which ties into
Peaceful Paths-' violence
prevention program and could
expand it 'from Alachua
County schools into Bradford
and Union county classrooms.,
"Also, the other thing is, we


hope',,ve'll'be able to provide
trainina for law enforcement
personnel right here in
Bradford and Union counties,"
said Holland, adding it's
difficult to send personnel
away for training when
agencies are smaller.
Peaceful Paths, meanwhile,
continues to seek funds to
place transitional housing for
domestic violence victims in
Bradford County, submittinq a
grant application i n
cooperation with the Starke
Police Department and others.
Services from the one'-stop
center could continue beyond
the two-year grant period if
t h i s h o u s i n and
accompanying office- is
completed.
Holland said she's excited to
see what'comes of the grant
application. She said whether
the counties receive- the -rant
or not, she was pleased to see
so many organizations coming
together for, a common
purpose.
I I really think that's what
has to happen, because noone
agency can really make a
difference. We all have to
work together,",she said.


ionfederate ancestors, or
believe they do are encouraged
to attend to see what the SCV
has to offer. Those who do not
have Confederate ancestors,
but are interested in'history
and the Civil War should also
attend.

Health dept to conduct phone survey


Survey to be given
by state health
department
The Union County Health
Department announced Feb. 22
that residents of the county
may receive a phone call
regarding a health survey that
the Florida Department of
Health is conducting.
This is a yearlong survey to
collect information about
health behaviors and
conditions to further improve
the health and safety of
Floridians. The Behavioral
Risk Factor Surveillance
System survey is an
anonymous, random telephone
survey of thousands of Florida
adults (18 years old and older)
throughout the state.
"In Union County,
approximately 500 people will
be surveyed regarding a wide
range of health issues," said
Winnie Holland, administrator
of the Union County Health


Department. "We hope that
everyone will participate in
this important survey because
it provides us information
regarding health programs and
priorities for our county," said
Holland.
The survey focuses on a
wide range of health issues
including, but not limited to:
physical activity, diet, tobacco
and alcohol use, HIV/AIDS
prevention, asthma, diabetes
and cancer screenings. DOH
uses information from the
survey to identify groups who
are at highest risk for illness,
disability and premature death,
and to set health program and
policy priorities.

About the telephone
interview:
Home telephone
numbers are selected at
random. ,
Most phone calls will be
made in the evenings or


during the weekends.
The Do Not Call lists do
not apply because this is
a legitimate health
survey and not a
solicitation.
1 Household will be
called multiple times to
try to reach eligible
respondents.
You will not be asked
for personal information
such as your Social
Security number of
home address.
You can skip any
question that you do not
want to answer because
you feel it is a sensitive
issue.
It may take up to 15 to
20 minutes to complete
the interview.
The DOH has conducted the
survey in conjunction with the
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention since 1986.

5-year-old girl dies after being struck by school bus


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
A 5-year-old Raiford girlb
was run over by a Union
County school bus and was
pronounced dead at the
hospital Tuesday afternoon.
At approximately 3:19 p.m.,
a 911 call came into the county
about the accident.-
School bus No. 12, drive
by Beverly Tyson, 38, of
Lawtey, was headed north
bound on Northeast 130'h
Terrace-the road that
branches off to the right by the
Raiford Community Center
before the intersection of C.R.
229 and S.R. 121.
After 5-year-old Brittany
Carney got off the bus, she
crossed the street in front of
the bus, headed toward her
home on the left side of the
street. Tyson thought Brittany
had cleared the bus, said Lt.
Bill Leeper of the Florida
Highway Patrol, but as she
started to pull forward, she felt
a bump. She stopped the bus to
find that she had run over
Brittany.
The girl was carried by life
flight to Shands University of
Florida in Gainesville where
she was pronounced dead,
" Leeper said.
Tyson was so distraught by
the situation that she had to be
taken to Shands Starke. No
word on her condition was
available as of press time.
At the time of the accident,
bus No. 12 still had
approximately 30 students on
board, Leeper said. Another
bus was called to transport the
children home.
Neighbors all rushed to the
bus quickly after the incident,
most believing something was
wrong with the bus or that it
had hit an animal.
Michael Thomas, 48, said he
heard the noise and ran
outside.
He said everyone rushed out
to help and that rescue
personnel was quickly on
scene.
"I wouldn't wish that on
anyone," said Thomas, who
noted that his own daughter
was pregnant. "My heart goes
out to everyone involved."
Thomas remembered that
Brittany was always laughing
and smiling when he would
see : the little blonde girl

High-tech agriculture saves local farmer


personnel to teach the
Wainwrights how to use the
equipment.
This technology can be
applied to growing many
crops. It is most beneficial
when' a grower uses drip
irrigation because where and
when both water and fertilizer
are applied can be controlled.
Drip irrigation has traditionally
been used only by commercial
growers, but homeowners can
use drip irrigation systems as
well. With water and.fertilizer
costs going up, the cost of
installing a drip-irrigation
system becomes more
appealing (plus, you get the
added benefits of not watering
your weeds).
Although using this new
equipment sounds
complicated, it really is not
hard to use. Once the software
on the computer is set up, it


Combined efforts from the
University of Florida, Bradford
County Extension, University
of Florida BMP Specialists and
the Suwannee River Water
Management District have
resulted in the adoption of
more efficient farming
practices by Adam and Drew
Wainwright of Wainwright
Farms.
The Wainwrights took
advantage of a cost-share
program sponsored by the
Suwannee River Partnership
that helped them acquire their
own soil moisture and plant
nutrient monitoring equipment.
The monies also provided a
laptop computer that is used to
record and study the amount of
water used by their strawberry
crop.
In addition to the equipment,
the University of Florida
provided technical field

takes just a few clicks of the
mouse to see where and how
much water you have in the
soil. The soil probes can be set
up to measure soil moisture at
three different depths up to 36
inches.
If irrigation is not used, sap
tests can still be used to help
decide when and how much
fertilizer to use. You just add
granular fertilizer instead of
liquid fertilizer. Although the
sap testing equipment is a little
tricky to use, with instruction
and practice it is easily
learned.
If growers do not want to
run their own sap tests, they
can bring their- plant samples
to the Bradford County
Extension office to have the
them analyzed for nitrogen and
potassium content. .Call the
office at (904) 966-6224 to
find out how to sample your
crop.
In the past, fertilizer was
cheap enough that growers
were more concerned with
getting enough fertilizer and
not worried about using too
much fertilizer. This is old
thinking because any fertilizer
plants don't use eventually

No amount of tears, words or

you're gone, but not forgotten.
You will always be in our heart
and mind. We miss you dearly.

heard your voice, I can still feel
your touch and hear you.
Because you became my mother
by choice, instead of by birth,
made you more special and
loved by me.
Mama, you were living proof
that giving birth to a child does
not always make a true loving
and caring mother.
I love you and will miss you
always.

Property tax plan needs balance


Florida House Speaker Marco
-Rubio has proposed a drastic change
in the way taxes are assessed on real
property in Florida. The new concept
will remove valuation of property as
a basis for levying taxes and replace
the loss with a 2.5-cent increase in
sales taxes.
Supporters for changing the current
- and historical method of assessment
claim the spike in real estate values
has caused counties to collect "too
much" revenue. This is a spurious
claim since county commissioners
control the amount of taxes collected
through traditional methods each
fiscal year, maintaining a system of
taxation that has served well for 150
years.
If counties are collecting more ad
valorem tax than proper, an adjustment
should be made in the traditional
manner by reducing millage rather
than "throwing out the baby with the
water."
The obvious result of the Rubio
plan, if implemented, removes taxes
from the wealthy and transfers the cost
of government to the poor through a
sales tax.
It is difficult to find anyone who
doesn't agree that taxes should be
fair, but defining what is fair is the
problem. No plan is entirely fair, but
the current plan has stood the test of
time and has become accepted by all
levels of society. It should possibly


be "tweaked" a bit by exempting the
second $25,000 rather than the first,
allowing every homeowner to share
in the cost of government.
Rubio hails from Miami, the richest
taxing district in the state, where
multimillion dollar homes are the
norm and removing ad valorem taxes
would reduce the tax roll by millions
of dollars to be replaced by a mind-
boggling sales tax (the highest in the
nation), hurting low-income residents
and angering tourists.
Taxes must be levied and collected,
or else we lose all the gains civilization
has made over the centuries and revert
to a society of haves and have-nots.
We have seen the effects of exorbitant
taxes on the poor to support the rich,
which created the two-tier British
society. We have also seen the failure
of socialistic societies in which the..
rich are brought to a common level.
Neither society meets the American
ideal of rewarding individual initiative
and drive.
There are those that despise
accumulations of wealth, but jobs are
only created by accumulated wealth.
We cannot, however, give the wealthy
special breaks at the expense of the
masses; we can only try to maintain
a balance, and the Rubio proposal
doesn't meet the criteria for balance
or fairness.
By Buster Rahn,
Telegraph Editorialist


Our state's property tax system is unfair


People living side by side in similar
homes often pay very different tiax
rates, yet receive the same level of
services. Elderly couples seeking
to downsize are likely to face
dramatically increased taxes in their
new smaller homes. These stark
-inequities are creating an atmosphere
of reform.
Good.
As citizens we generally understand
the need to pay taxes, but we also
demand that they be fair and our current
system of taxing properties is not fair.
In response to public concerns, state
lawmakers and our governor have
vowed to make changes. They are
promising some feel-good fixes, like
doubling the homestead exemption,
and are gaining popular support in
the process. But a few nips and tucks
around the edges may not be what
the public is crying for, nor will they
repair a system that is out of balance.
Let me explain.
Over a decade ago, voters agreed
to cap property taxes via the Save
Our Homes initiative, which limits
the amount by which property taxes
may- increase for homeowners who
remain in their homes. This well-
intended cap shifted,,property taxes to
new home buyers, renters, owners of
second homes and businesses. As a
result of this unfair shift, two-thirds of
property taxes are now paid by those
who do not own homes. Not only is
this unfair, it makes no sense.
What also makes no sense and is
often lost in this debate is the fact
that the state is, once again, in the
process of telling local governments
how to raise local taxes in order to
provide local services. But should
state lawmakers in Tallahassee alone
be proposing substantive changes to a
taxing system that is supposed to fund
local city and county governments?
As the executive director of the
Florida League of Cities, I am deeply
concerned that local city governments


and the people we serve will be
stuck with a one-size-fits-all solution
developed by state lawmakers who
are unaware of the diverse challenges
facing local communities. One-
size government solutions rarely fit
anyone.
We support local control over local
taxes, and we prefer real taxing options
that fit our cities.
Florida's cities and their' local
citizens should be given the authority
to design tax systems that suit their
individual, changing needs. Why
stop at doubling the homestead
exemption? Some cities may want
it tripled or quadrupled, while others
may not. Many cities may prefer
having their services paid exclusively
through property taxes because
residents can take a deduction on their
federal income taxes. Some cities
may choose the local-option sales tax
because visitors pick up much of the
tab.
While I would personally prefer an
increase in my sales tax in exchange
for a lower property tax rate, I don't
.have that option-nor does my local
city government.
And that is the point.
City governments and local voters
should decide how local cities fund
local services, not state lawmakers
in Tallahassee with their one-size
approach.
I believe that city governments work
best because they are closest to the
people they serve. City leaders and
local voters are best able to decide
how to provide necessary funding for
local services. As such, we would
like more than just a patch-up for our
broken property tax system. We prefer
giving local city. governments and
local citizens a stronger voice and a
full array of choices.
Mike Sittig is the executive director
of the Florida League of Cities, the
municipal association that represents
cities, towns and villages in the state.

You
reinforced our
beliefs
Dear Editor:
Mr. Bevill, you've lost
again. You've only reinforced
our belief in the eternal God.
Be assured if the weak kneed
Christians of 'this community
were doing what they are
commanded to do, these
devilish organizations you
speak about, would be so far in
the background it would take a
good telescope to see them.
SBy the way.Mr. Bevill, when
you go ton the store to buy
something, do you use money
that says "In God We Trust?"
Kind of hypocritical isn't it?
The Lord has so much to
offer everyone. What does your
organization have to offer the
world? Nothing, absolutely
nothing.

The other-
side to a
story
Dear Editor:
There are two sides to every
story and I would like to share
the experiences of my son,
Joshua Adkins, at Sunshine
Industries.
Joshua initially began
receiving services at Sunshine
Industries while enrolled in the
Bradford_ C.ounty--Sc-hool
system in June 2000 through
the school to work transitional


program. .As a student he
-attended Sunshine Industries
three days a week and later
' increased his attendance to five
days.
Joshua's goal was to become
more indepeiident in his
vocational skills and to
enhance his academic skills. He
attended class where he .was
instructed to learn basic
computer skills, mainly
manipulating the mouse to
operate the computer under the
supervision of the Adult Basic
Educational Instructor and an
occupational therapist.
Joshua graduated from
Bradford HighSchool in May
2003, and now- attends
Sunshine Industries as a full
time recipient of various
services where he enjoys a
meaningful day, full of
activities. His primary -service
is provided at Sunshine
Industries where he receives
vocational training, enjoys
community integrated activities
including bowling, and visits
to the Butterfly Farm and to
the library.
He has broadened his social
role among his peers by being
a member and a participant of
the Aktion Club for two years.
He currently holds a position
as the club secretary. Through
the club membership and
Sunshine Industries, he has
been involved in several
activities hat have benefited the
community. He headed up the
solicitation for pennies to be
donated to the Iodine
Deficiency Foundation, he
collected dimes for the March
of Dimes Foundation, and he
took part in a'combined effort
with Sunshine and Aktion
Club to raise money for the
March of Dimes from sales of
items at a yard sale and a bake
sale.
Joshua is very actively
involved in the activities at
Sunshine Industries. He is
currently overseeing the
collection of nonperishable
food items for the local food
pantry in Starke. He and his
peers have donated a box of
items each week through the
months of February and March.
He enjoys the activities and the
staff at Sunshine Industries and
looks forward to coming in
every morning, having a
morning round of coffee and
Hardee's biscuit with his
friends, Tom and Tony.
He is .a member of the
Human Rights Committee
whose responsibility is to
inform other consumers of
their rights, monitor certain
reports to ensure their rights
are not being restricted or
violated. Joshua was selected to


attend an overnight trip to
Tallahassee with the committee
to receive further training on
-idi-vidual righ-ts. -He-went.. to..
. -allahassee .with...to .siaff
members from Sunshine and
some other consumers and was
taken excellent care of. ,He
really enjoyed going by
himself, without his parents,,
and with his peers. He talked
about the trip for weeks.
Joshua works in the
workshop at Sunshine doing
various things. Sometimes
they have contracts with Closet
Maid and he enjoys this. They
always try to make it possible
for Joshua to participate and be
able to do all the things the
others do, even though he has
cerebral palsy and is in a
wheelchair and has limited use
of his arms and hands. They
build special devices to help
him put the screws in the
Closet Maid brackets and other
projects they have.
The consumers at Sunshine
get a paycheck every other
Friday. That gives them a-
feeling of accomplishment to
get paid like everyone else
does. Joshua always wants to
go to the bank and plans on
what he will buy with his
money.
Sunshine has been such a
blessing for my family as it
gave Joshua something to do
after he finished high school.
He isn't one to sit home and
there is not much for a severely
handicapped person to do in a
small county like ours.
Sunshine has consumers with
all types of disabilities and
they do their best to
accommodate all of them.
Every place has problems
that happen, but I believe the
staff at Sunshine is doing
everything they can to see that
the safety of all the consumers
is a number one priority.
I, as a parent, feel that my
son, Joshua, is safe and happy
at Sunshine Industries.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Don't hold
your breath
Dear Editor:
If Mr. Bevill thinks,"change
is coming," I hope he is not
naive enough to think it will
occur in his lifetime, or any
many, many lifetimes.
There are too many people in
this country entrenched in the
supernatural, and with the
dumbing down of our public
school system getting worse
(there--are about 221 countries
with better educated children) it
tan only contribute to more
and more ignorance and
dependence on the supernatural.
And I'm not talking about
just religious superstition, but
the wide spread belief in UFOs,
ghosts, crop circles, near-death
experiences, faith healing, the
power of prayer and on and on.
So don't hold your breath,
Mr. Bevill. Expecting a
"change" has been a
generational event ever since
the Christian religion was
established. Each generation
has expected the myth that
Jesus was going to return was
sure to happen soon. You
cannot reason with people who
are dumb enough to believe
that we are "special" instead of
just another species of animal
on this cold unfeeling rock
called Earth.
They simply do not
understand that these


superstitions, especially
Religionn' have not done one
'thing,"have no' contributed
even one positive notion to the
advancement of our knowledge
of life or the universe. In fact
they are an impediment to the
advancement of our species
because they consider that we
are all "bad" '(sinners) from
birth and must spend our lives
in some kind of atonement to
some unknown entity that
supposedly created us; .,
If the "change" (end time)
doesn't come about when
expected, they just change the
date and the next generation
pops back up with it. .
Good luck Mr. Bevill, you
are surrounded in ignorance that
I don't believe will ever
change. And with our present
education system, it can only
get worse.

2 from Bradford earn Woman of Distinction honor


Cheryl Canova works hard to make a difference


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Cheryl Canova is a self-
described workaholic, but that
means more than pouring
every ounce of her effort into
her job as the director of the
Santa Fe Community College
Andrews Center in Starke. Her
efforts have touched the
community in a number of
ways, and that has resulted in
several people who know her
best to successfully nominate-
her as one of this year's
,Alachua-Bradford Women of
Distinction.
Canova is one of two
women selected from Bradford
County-Nancy Roberts is the


other-for the annual honor,
which is bestowed through
Santa Fe Community College
in celebration of Women's
History Month.
"I think it's a very nice
honor," Canova said. "It was
an nice compliment to be
selected. I was surprised, very
surprised." -
She may have .been
surprised, but several people,
upon learning of her selection,
were not.
"I think it's wonderful," said
SFCC instructor Judy Becker,
a former Woman of
Distinction, who .nominated
Canova. "IEthink she's so
deserving."
Bra4ford County Supervisor


.of Elections Terry Vaughan,
. who also nominated Canova,
agreed that Canova was "most
deserving" of the honor.
"She's made her mark on
our community," Vaughan
said.
One way she has made that
mark is through her position at
the Andrews Center. Vaughan,
in his nomination letter, wrote:
"Never has the Andrews
Center enjoyed more positive
exposure. Her decision to form
citizen advisory groups to
solicit input has been well
received and, as a result, this
community feels it has a stake
in the success of the center."
It is possible to serve as
director of the center without


doing all of the work that
Canova does, Becker said.
Canova is a member of several
boards and committees within
SFCC, including the
Scholarship Selection
Committee, the Eugene L.
Matthews Museum Committee
and the Andrews Center
Student Activities Committee.
Canova also established the
Andrews -Center Advisory
Board and Bradford County
Community Connection (a
faith and business outreach
program) and Bradford
County's College for Kids
program.
"She really goes out of her
See CANOVA, p. 3C


Cheryl Canova was chosen as an Alachua-Bradford
3 Woman of Distinction for her accomplishments as the
director of the Santa Fe Community College Andrews
Center and for her work in various community
organizations.


-Roberts is dependable,

'one-of-a-kind' friend


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Nancy Roberts is described
as a dependable person who is
always willing to help others,
,but she prefers to do so in the
shadows. Seeking the spotlight
is the furthest thing from her
mind.
"The one thing she can't
cope with is praise," Ger6
Johns said. "God, others,
self-that's the order of
endeavor for her."
Well, because of the.efforts
of Johns and others who know
her best, Roberts is going to
have to step briefly into the
spotlight. She has been named
an Alachua-Bradford Woman
of Distinction.
"I never would've dreamed
that I would ever get picked
for that," Roberts said of the
annual honor, which. is
awarded by Santa 'Fe
Community College in
recognition of Women's
History Month.
Roberts is one of two
amen-Cheryl Canova is the
ther-from Bradford County
chosen this year. Virginia
Darby and Virginia Johns, in a
joint nomination letter, wrote
that Roberts is different from
most women who receive the
honor, but she is no less
deserving.
"While the majority of the
recipients of his honor have
been community leaders, we
think there is another aspect of
being a distinguished woman
that is worthy of recognition,"
Darby and Johns wrote. "If
Nancy Roberts had been one
of the .disciples, she. never
would have had to ask, 'Who
is my neighbor?' when Christ
gave the commandment to love
our neighbors as ourselves.
Nancy considers everyone her
neighbor- and is usually
extending a helping hand
before we even realize we
need one."
! Darby and Johns described
Roberts as someone who is a
friend in situations where
others might not be. They
wrote that Roberts once helped
a friend who was battling an
addiction to prescription drugs
get the proper treatment and


help.
.."This person is now fully
recovered and living a
wonderful life, following in
Nancy's footsteps helping
others," Darby and Johns
wrote.
They said whether it's
creating decorations for a
wedding reception or simply
lending a listening ear and a
shoulder to cry on, Roberts is u
"one-of-a-kind" friend in any
type of situation.
"Nancy isn't the woman
who makes the headlines or
gets her picture in the paper,
but she's the one who mends
our hearts and keeps us going
when times are tough, and the
one who rejoices with us when
they're, good," Darby and
Johns wrote.
Ger6 Johns wrote more
about the woman who provides
decorations for events. Calling
Roberts the "decorator
wherever she goes," Johns
wrote in her nomination letter
that Roberts does not know
how to say no. Because of that,
the churches she has been a
member of have benefited, the
Woman's Club of Starke has
benefited and the local, schools
when her children were
growing up have benefited.
"She keeps coming up with
unique and clever ideas,"
Johns rotet. "She's able and
always willing. She rolls up
her sleeves and gets with it."
One of Roberts' unique
ideas occurred when the First
United Methodist Church of
Starke was replacing its
stained-glass windows. Johns
wrote that Roberts has used
that glass to make ornaments
and keepsakes, which have
been sold at the church's
annual bazaar for the past 13
years.
Roberts said she began by
making sniall replicas of the
church windows with the
glass.
"They sold like hotcakes,"
she said. "We couldn't believe
it."
From then on, Roberts said
she has made pieces that
coordinate with the theme of
the bazaar each year.

way to promote the Andrews
Center," Becker said.
Colleen Scott-Hall, a student
development specialist at the
Andrews Center, wrote in her
nomination letter that Canova
does more than simply lend
her presence to the various
committees, etc., she is
involved with at the college.
"Regardless of the tasks or
goal to be achieved, she gives.
her all and inspires others to do
the same," Scott-Hall wrote.
"Her passion and ability to
embrace others is
characteristic of who. she is
and what she believes to be the
right path to a better
community."
Sylvia Tatum, a former
Woman of Distinction, wrote
in her nomination-letter that
Canova has a boundless energy
when it comes to helping
.others.
"She is an asset to our
community," Tatum wrote.
Canova said it is just her
nature to do the things she


Nancy Roberts, who has been chosen as an Alachua-
Bradford Woman of Distinction, displays a glass piece
typical of the kind of work she does. She has been
making such pieces from the First United Methodist
Church of Starke's old stained-glass windows for the
past 15 years.


ROBERTS
Continued from p. 1C
"Far and wide, people have a
little piece of their church
wherever they go," Gere Johns
wrote.
Roberts said she has always
done things with her hands.
"I feel like I am gifted with
my hands," she said. "I can't
preach, and I can't teach, but I
can do anything with my
hands."
That includes making slip
covers, costumes, wreaths and
'Christmas trees. When the
Woman's Club of Starke was
renovated, Roberts made
drapes for the windows.
"There was never a dinner or
event at the First Methodist
Church of Starke that Nancy
didn't make beautiful table
decorations for," Virginia
Darby and Virginia Johns
wrote,
That has ,continued at
Keystone United Methodist
Church, of which Roberts iand
her husband, Gedrge, are now
members.
"At every function we have
scheduled, she has been
involved in the decorations and
arrangements," Janice Teague,
president of Keystone United
Methodist Women,. wrote in
her nomination letter. "Many
hours of her time have been
spent making these decorations
at her own expense.
"In one particular case, she
was contacted at the last
minute by our chairperson of
Prime Timers. This is a
covered-dish event with
professional entertainment.
The person who was to
decorate was 'unable to come,
and Mrs. Roberts worked
through the night making
decorations for 25 tables."
The Rev. Richard Nussel,
formerly of the First United


Methodist Church of Starke,
wrote: "Dependable may be
the best way to describe her
commitment to whatever she'
undertakes. With Nancy, you
could always count on the task
being accomplished and done
with excellence."
Roberts was born and grew
up in Hastings, where she
represented St. Johns County
twice in Tallahassee with her
sewing as part of the 4-H Club
of America in the early 1950s.
In 1956, while living in
Gainesville, she was the first
seamstress hired at Ruddy's
department store. A few years
later, Roberts met a woman
who taught sewing at the
University of Florida. The two
women opened a sewing shop
called The Needle Point on the
corner of 13th Street and 16th
Avenue.
Roberts owned and operated
her own business in
Starke-Nancy's Flowers-for
eight years in the 1960s. She
was the fourth vice president
of the Woman's Club of Starke
r\ the late 1970s and ,.as an
jactme m'rfiber of the First' '
United Methodist Church of
Starke in the 1980s. She was a
group leader in United.
Methodist Women for four
years.
She continued to employ her
talents in 1996 while living in
Suwannee County before
moving to Keystone.
Roberts and her husband
have been married for 54
years. She has three
children-Richard Roberts of
Palm Coast, Brenda O'Brien
of Starke and Scott' Roberts of
Keystone-and nine,
grandchildren.
Her family has played no
small role in Roberts' creative
endeavors.
"My family has always been
a great support in whatever I
do," she said.

""It's just me," she said. "I
just want to make a
difference."
Making a difference in one's
community can come about
through membership. and
participation in various civic
organizations and causes.
Canova is a member of the
Kiwanis Club of Starke, of
which she is currently
president, the Altrusa Club of
Starke and the Woman's Club
of Starke. She serves on the
Bradford County Library
Advisory Committee, serves as
board member and secretary
with Main Street Starke Inc., is
the mini-grant chair of the
Bradford Education
Foundation and is a member of
Friends of the Library.
"You name it, she's been
involved," Vaughan said.
Canova is also active in her
church-First United
Methodist of Starke. She is a
lay leader and serves on
several church committees.
The Rev. Michael
Hutcherson, in his nomination
letter, wrote that Canova, in

collection
If consumers do not have the
money to pay all their debts,
they must make difficult
choices about which debts to
pay first. Constant harassing
calls and letters from
collection agencies can cause
consumers to pay the wrong
debts first, resulting in serious
consequences for the family.
Just as dangerous to the
consumer is feeling
overwhelmed and ignoring all
bills in the unrealistic hope
that they will simply go away.
The following provides a
summary of your rights when
dealing with collectors and
some guidelines for
determining what debts should
be given priority in a financial
crisis.
Even when you do not have
the money to pay your bills,
you do not. have to be


You should first use your
money to pay for what is most
necessary for your
family-food, clothing, shelter
and continued utility service.
Because there is very little a
debt collector can actually do
to you, debt collection efforts
should have no effect on your
decision about which debts to
pay first. Threat to bring suit,,
to ,seize household good or
garnish wages should be given
little weight unless a lawsuit
has actually been filed and you
receive court papers.
Some general rules for
settling payment priorities are:
* Mortgage and rent
payments should always come
first.
* Make whatever payments
are necessary to insure
essential utility service is.not

company may not require

guide, coordinator, scheduler
and as reconciler, if the
occasion arises."
"I have had the honor of
serving with Cheryl in many
different settings and never
cease to be impressed by her
compassion, character and
commitment," Hutcherson
wrote. "Cheryl is honest,
dependable, imaginative and
truly is a person of
distinction."
Canova, however, said she
has plenty of help doing what
she does in the community,
crediting her family and her
husband for their support.
"I didn't do any of this by
myself," she said.
Canova said her mother,
Peggy Godwin, and deceased
father, Jim Godwin, played an
important role in shaping who
she is today. Also, her mother
and other family members lend
their help on various
community projects Canova is
involved in.
Cheryl's husband of 11
years, George, has also been
an encouragement.


payment in full even if you are
behind.
* A car loan should be paid
after critical items (food, rent.
clothing) but before most other
debts for nonessentials.
* Generally, loans with only
household goods as collateral
should be paid after more
pressing debts.
* .Debts without property-
pledges as collateral, such as
credits, doctor and hospital
bills and accounts with
merchants, should have low
priority.
* The threat of a lawsuit
should not raise the priority of
a debt above that of mortgage,
rent, utility payments and a car
loan.
* Do not pay those debts
that you have a good legal
reason not to pay, such as
when the car you borrowed for


"He's right there beside
me," Canova said. "That's
important."
.Canova, who has. lived in
Bradford County most of her
life, has a bachelor's degree in
recreation and a master's
degree in health education
from the University of Florida.
Prior to being hired as the
director of the Andrews
Center, she served as the city
of Starke's recreation director
for more than 26 years.
While at the recreation
department, Canova lent her
support to Project Playground,
helping to raise approximately
$40,000 for playground
equipment.
Canova has been an adjunct
instructor at SFCC for 12 years
and has been the Andrews
Center director for four years.
Her accomplishments may
be a lot, but she said she still
has goals she wants to
accomplish for the community.
Being named a Woman of
Distinction has not changed
that in any way.
"It just makes me want to
work harder," Canova said.


is a lemon. Instead, seek legal
advice as to how to best fight
for your rights.
* When a creditor wins a
lawsuit, the consumer's home
and other assets may be at risk
depending on state law and the
amount of equity in the
property. If the property is
truly at risk, make this a high
priority debt.
* Tax liabilities and students
loans should be paid ahead of
low priority but after top
priority debts.

BR IDG IN G TH EG AP .*


Like the question of the,
chicken and the egg, home-
owners planning to buy a new
home must ask, "Which comes
first?" Do you sell first, and
then look frantically for the
new home, or buy first and risk
maintaining and financing two
properties?
There's more risk than just
two mortgages. If you're
rushed to sell your home to
purchase a new one, you might
be forced to list at, or accept, a
lower price than expected. If
you're pressed to buy a new
home after selling your exist-
ing home, you may be forced
into paying an unexpectedly
higher price.
What is one to do? Build a
bridge! Yes, there is a financ-
ing option called a "bridge
loan," so named because it
"spans the gap" between your
sale and your purchase.
One type of "bridge" lets


you simultaneously pay off
your existing mortgage and
make a downpayment on the
new one. You make payments
only on the new loan, and pay
off the bridge loan when your
old home sells.
Another kind of "bridge"
allows you to borrow against
the equity in your old home to
make the downpayment on the
new home. Both "bridges"
still mean two loans,,but the
costs may be offset as a result
of having more time to get top
dollar for the sale of your

Addicted to
phones?
Cell phone use
becoming a major
problem for some,
expert says
"Turn off your cell phones
and pagers."
For most people, heeding
these warnings in hospitals or
at the movies is as simple as
pressing a button. But for a
growing number of people
across the globe, the idea of
being out of touch, even just
for a 90-minute movie, is
enough to induce anxiety, says
a University of Florida
psychologist who studies
addictions to the Internet and
other technologies.
Although cellular phones
and personal digital assistants
such as the BlackBerry were
created to make modern life
more convenient, they're
actually beginning to interfere
in the lives of users who don't
know when to turn them off,
says Lisa Merlo, Ph.D., an
assistant professor of
psychiatry in the UF College
of Medicine.
"It's not so much talking on
the phone that's typically the
problem although that can
have consequences, too,"
Merlo said. "(It's) this need to
be connected, to know what's
going on and be available to
other people. That's one of the
hallmarks of cell phone
addiction."
Unlike addictions to alcohol,
drugs or even gambling, it can
be hard to pinpoint
problematic cell phone use.
Almost everyone has a cell
phone and uses it regularly.
But if someone can't get
through dinner without
sending text messages or
furiously typing on a personal
digital assistant during a
meeting, it may be time to take
a step back, Merlo said.
How people respond to
being separated from their cell


(FAX:9.


phones or PDAs is another
clue. Frequent users often
become anxious when they are
forced to turn off the phone or
if they forget it at home, so
much so that they can't- enjoy
whatever they're doing, Merlo
added. Often, cell phone
"addicts" compulsively check
their phones for voicemails
and text messages, she said.
"When (cell phone overuse)
really becomes problematic for
a lot of people is if they have
underlying anxiety or
depression," she said. "This
can really exacerbate it or
(cause) their symptoms to
manifest themselves."
For example, someone who
already worries about what
others think of them could
become easily agitated if their
phone calls or messages aren't
returned right away.
"This is something that is
going to affect them on a day-
to-day basis," Merlo said.
The problem seems to be
growing. A Japanese study
revealed that children with cell
phones often don't make
friends with their less tech-
savvy peers, a Hungarian study
found that three-fourths of
children had mobile phones
and an Italian study showed
that one quarter of adolescents
owned multiple phones and
many claimed to be somewhat
addicted to them. A British,
study also recently found that
36 percent of college students
surveyed said they could not
get by without cell phones. But
this may be more a sign that
students view cell phones as a,
modern necessity' like a car,
said David Sheffield, a
psychologist who conducted
the study at Staffordshire
University in England.
"The most shocking figure
was that 7 percent said the use
of mobile phones had caused
them to lose a relationship or a
job," Sheffield said.
Although experts have
pinpointed these problems in
frequent cell phone users,
studies have yet to show if a
bad cell phone habit
constitutes an actual addiction.


Yet as with traditional
addictions, excessive cell
phone use is associated with
certain hallmark patterns of
behavior, including using
something to feel good,
building up a tolerance and
needing more of it over time to
get the same feeling, and going
through withdrawal if deprived
of it, Merlo said.
Cell phone users could start
*out-with one phone and switch
to newer models with more
advanced features or PDAs
that act 'like' mini-computers
over time to get the same
feeling they had with their first
phone, she said. Although
withdrawal is typically
considered a physical response
that occurs when the body
goes without a chemical, the
anxiety cell phone users feel
without their phone could
simply be another form of
withdrawal.
"Those things lend toward
the idea that maybe this is an
addiction,' but maybe it's
manifesting in a little bit
different way than you would
think of a chemical substance,"

Merlo said.
Addiction also causes
changes in the brain, but
scientists have yet to measure
what happens in the brains of
cell phone users, she said.
Even eating and other
behaviors have been shown to
produce the same effects in the
brain as drugs and alcohol in
some people, UF studies have
shown.
For frequent phoners who do
think they have a problem or
for parents of children
obsessed with their cells,
Merlo advises downgrading to
a basic phone with fewer
features and setting limits
about where and when to use
the phone.
"Cell phones are a great
technology," Merlo said.
"They're useful in a lot of
situations. (But) one of the
most important things is
making sure you have some
cell phone free time in your
day. It's OK to turn it off.
Focus on family, homework,
knowing that cell phone
message will still be there."

Southside students are .


healthy hoppers for a day -..
----- .. .


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
The annual program is
referred to as "Step Up,
Florida," but more than 600
elementary school students in
Starke did more than step.
They hopped their way toward
healthy habits.
This year, the Bradford
County Health Department
held its Step Up program at
Southside Elementary School
on Feb. 20. The theme was
"Hopping for Health," and the
school's 660 'students
participated in various
activities that required them to
hop.
Students also had the chance "
to meet and dance with "Merry
Moo," the "Got Milk?" cow,
which promotes "three a day,
the milk, cheese and yogurt
way."
It was a way of "just
promoting physical activity,"
said Raynell Fields, the health
department's chronic disease
health promotion and
education coordinator.
. Each grade participated in
the Step-Up activities for 30
minutes. Students had the
chances to win
prizes-including water
bottles', bracelets, stickers and
pencils-at each activity.
Last year's program was a
community-wide event,
involving both kids and adults.
Winnie Holland, the health
department's director, said

team wins first


2 district games


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Blake Lott struck out 10
batters and homered for the
third straight game as the
Keystone Heights baseball
team defeated visiting
Interlachen 9-5 on Feb. 23 to
open district play with a 2-0
record.
The Indians (4-2 overall
prior to Feb. 27) got a solid six
innings out of Lott (2-0), who
gave up three hits, two walks
and one run.
Interlachen made things
interesting in the seventh,
scoring four runs against
reliever Andrew Secules. A
double by Billy Mullins with
the bases loaded brought in
three runs and pulled the Rams
to within 9-5 before Jack
Fralick grounded out to Lott,
who moved to third base, to
end the game.
The Rams did not help
themselves: defensively,
committing five errors, three


of which occurred in the first
inning in which Keystone
scored three unearned runs.
Keystone's Lott and Tyson
Paulk reached base on errors,
and Rams pitcher fHunter
Thomas loaded the bases when
he hit Cole Belote with a pitch.
Clayton Mosley ripped a
single up the middle to score
both Lott and Paulk, while a
dropped fly ball hit by Brett
Anderson allowed Belote to
score.
Thomas, who had 11
strikeouts, struck out the side
in the second, but Lott led off
the third inning with a home
run that put Keystone up 4-0.
In the bottom of the fourth,
Keystone's Chad Berkson and
Tyler Richardson singled and
doubled, respectively. That set
up Paulk's RBI single and
Lott's sacrifice fly, which
scored Richardson and put the
Indians up 6-0.

Indians defeat r


Union 13-0 for wi0 ,


first softball win 4 h 6.,


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Through the first three
games of the season, the
Keystone softball team has
either hit the ball well or
played solid defense-the
Indians just hadn't been able to
put the two together in one
game.
The Indians, though, finally
did both well in a 13-0 win
over district opponent Union
County in five innings on Feb.
20 in Lake Butler.
It was the first win of the
season for Keystone, which
