The driver of a tractor-trailer
that killed seven children in
January of 2006 has been
sentenced to seven years in
prison. Alvin Wilkerson
appeared before Judge Maurice
Giunta in Union County on
June 12, pleading no contest
to seven counts of vehicular
homicide and 10 counts of


culpable negligence.
The accident occurred when
a school bus carrying nine
children home after school
made a stop on S.R. 121 to let
off some of its passengers. A
stopped car behind the bus was
crushed and burst into flames
when it was hit from behind
and slammed into the bus by
Wilkerson's rig.
The crash killed 15-year-
old Nikki Mann, the driver of
the vehicle; Elizabeth Mann,


15; Johnny Mann, 13; Heaven
Mann, 3; Anthony Lamb, 20
months; Ashley Keen, 13; and
Miranda Finn, 8. All of the
children were from the same
family, with Finn and Keen
being cousins of the Mann
children. Finalization of
Lamb's adoption into the Mann
family was to take place the
day following the crash.
Nine students on the bus
were injured, some critically.
Injured were Brenda Chandler,


Cecilia Elixson, Cody Vaughn,
Katherine Woods, Diana
Murphy, Richard Murphy,
Roman West, Justin Poorman
and Dalton Sumner, all ranging
from ages 5 to 17 at the time
of the crash. The bus driver,
Lillie Mae Perry Godbolt, was
also ejected from the bus and
seriously injured.
Some of the injured sustained
several months of rehabilitation
and have been left with
permanent disabilities.


An investigation into the
crash revealed that, except
for a short nap, Wilkerson
had been awake for no less
than 34 hours when the crash
took place.. Prosecutors said
that the state was prepared to
prove beyond a shadow of a
doubt that Wilkerson acted in
a reckless manner, and on the
days leading up to the date
of the accident, Wilkerson
made a number of deliberate

Worthington Springs recipient of three grants


BY TERESA STONE-
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer


The Town of Worthington
Springs is the recipient of three
large grants made possible
through the Florida Recreation
Development Assistance
Program. A grant for $167,870
is currently being used to make
upgrades to the Chastain-Seay
Park on S.R. 121. The park is
very popular, especially during
the summer months, for nature
trail walks, swimming, fishing
and outdoor grilling.
Slabs are being poured this
week for three new pavilions at
the park. Two gazebos, a new
playground area and five new
camping sites with camp site
electrical hook-ups will also be
added. A fishing pier and boat
ramp will" be built and 10 new
parking spaces will be added to


the park. FRDAP also gave the
town of Worthington Springs
$20,000 to install a compost
restroom facility at the park.
This type of toilet requires
no plumbing and naturally
converts waste into a useable
humus.
A grant in the amount of
$155,750 was also received to
construct the new city hall park
on the vacant land adjacent to
the community center building
on S.R. 121.
Plans for the new city park
include a $90,000 screened
pavilion with added playground
equipment, picnic tables,
benches, outdoor grills and trash
receptacles. A paved nature trail
will run through the park and
connect it to the community
center building. Extensive
landscaping including outdoor
lighting and security cameras
will also be added. Safety


fencing will also be in place for
park patrons along S.R. 121.
A third grant will -iake-
repovations to the existing
Worthington Springs baseball
park. That grant was funded in
the amount of $178,819.
The baseball park is located
in on S.R. 121 next to the
Union County Emergency
Medical Services Station No. 3
and sheriff's satellite office.
On the grant application,
Council President John Rimes
III stated that the current park is
in such bad shape it is difficult
to even use it for practices. The
ball diamond does not have an
adequate clay foundation; there
are no dugouts, batting cages or
bleachers. Safety fencing needs
to be intact along S.R. 121
and the lights in the park are
not operational. Those lights
were installed sometime in the
1960s.


The county's O.J. Phillips
Recreational Park stays booked
regularly, leaving a need for
additional practice fields in the
area.
"Even with all of these issues,
the field is still heavily used.
by the community and would-
receive more use if it were
properly equipped to handle
baseball and softball games and
practices," Rimes said.
In addition to upgrading
the baseball field in the
park, $25,000 will be used
to resurface and renovate the
park's basketball court. Another
$20,000 has been designated
for fencing and parking.
In exchange for free
advertising and exclusive use
of their products, Rimes also
negotiated with both Pepsi-
Cola and Coca-Cola companies
See PARK, p. 3A


This is the future home of Worhtington Springs' City
Hall Park. Shown here in a view from S.R. 121 is the
Worthington Springs Community Center, which will be
adjacent to the new park, soon to be built from grant
funds.

decisions, such as driving
over the maximum allowable
hours without rest. This caused
. him to be sleep deprived and,
prosecutors said, he was, in
fact, functionally asleep at the
time of the crash.
After Wilkerson entered his
no contest plea, several victim-
impact statements were heard.
Mary Murphy, the mother of,
, two children critically injured
on the bus, spoke first.
"My son, Richard, who is now
18, was pronounced dead twice
that day, once at the scene and
again at Shands Hospital. My
daughter Diana is a 15-year-old


Gainesville Sun.


girl who will never be able to
wear a bathing suit, skirt or a
dress...the injury to her leg was
so massive that they won't ever
be able to do reconstructive
surgery," she said.
Wilkerson. holding his head
down in tears as he listened to
the statements, also spoke and
apologize three times to the
families.
"I listened to your comments
and I truly am sorry for what
happened." He said that he
does suffer daily and that the
only way he makes it through is
by asking God daily to forgive
him.
"I am not a heartless person,
please don't look at me as a
heartless person," Wilkerson
said.
In his statement to the court
before sentencing, the judge
apologized
for losing his
composure.
"There is no
one here today
that wants to
be here. I [as
a judge] lack
the capacity to
inflict pain upon
Mr. Wilkerson
that would be
able to take away
the pain and
loneliness felt by
these families,"
Giunta said.
he listens Prior to arriving
in court. at the courthouse
e with The for the hearing,
Giunta said he
drove by the


accident site and was compelled
to get out of his vehicle and
read every single word written
at the memorial by those still
grieving the loss of their loved
ones.
As part of the plea deal, the
manslaughter charges against
Wilkerson were dropped. Also,
if called upon to testify in
any suits relating to the case,
Wilkerson has agreed to do so.
Before closing, the judge
asked if anyone else wanted
to speak. Amanda Scott, the
mother of sisters Finn and
Keen, stood up and, in a barely
audible voice, said she wanted
to address something that had
been bothering her.
The parents of the victims
have received harsh criticism
regarding Nikki Mann operating
a vehicle at 15 years old.
"I just want everyone to
know that bus number 13 was
our kids' bus. Had they not
been in the car stopped behind
the bus, they would have been
on it," Scott said.
Most of the families had
hoped for a lengthier sentence,
but some were just glad for it
to finally be over. Because, of
the plea, there will be no trial
where the surviving children,
witnesses and families are
called to the stand to relive
what took place on Jan. 25,
2006.
Prosecutors said this case is
the first in Florida where a
truck driver was sentenced to
prison for culpable negligence
for falling asleep behind the
wheel.

grades kindergarten through
third is limited to 18 per class.

fourth grade classes is limited
to 22.
On July 8, the library door
facing the bus ramp will be
opened at 8 a.m. and teacher
requests will be taken from
parents or legal guardians only.

Case closed, but not for surviving victims,


Victim impact statement
of Mary Murphy, mother
of Richard and Diana
Murphy, bus passengers
My two children were on the school
bus when it was hit by Mr. Wilkerson's
semi. I thank God for ,sparing my
children. I feel like I shouldn't be angry
because I do have my children. I know
the Manns and Scotts wish they had my
problems instead of theirs, but my
children won't ever have a normal life
because Mr. Wilkerson decided to drive
lxhen he should not have been driving.
My son, Richard, who is 18, was
pronounced dead twice that day, once
at the scene and again at Shands
Hospital. I thank the paramedics and
the hospital for saving my son. He tore
the ligaments in the back of his neck,
'they put pins in between his first and
second vertebrae and he was on a
breathing machine for a month. His left
arm and shoulder are useless, as well as
his left diaphragm. He also had several
facial fractures including a broken 'ljos
Before this accident, he pl'-,ed
,football with his cousins. He can no
longer do that. He dreamed of
becoming a mechanic. Now he cannot
do that either.
My daughter Diana is a 15-year-old
girl who will never be able to weji a
bathing suit, skirt or dress. When she
was thrownfrom the school bus, her leg
caught on something and it tore the
skin, tissue and muscle from her leg
The people in the operating room iold
the doctor to cut her leg off as she
would not be able to walk on it. but
thank God the doctor didn't listen.
The injury goes from her mid-ihigh
to her ankle. Every two or three d.J ..
her leg had to be debrided. Every ntine
they debrided her leg, they had to i,. e
her one to two pints of blood. It \% as
very painful. They put pins in her i eight
hip and her left arm was
broken. The doctor said the
injury to her leg was so massive 1
that they won't ever be able to I
do reconstructive surgery. For THl1
over a year, every time she saw O
a semi truck behind us, she
would panic and I would have
to pull over. i
I do have sympathy for Mr.
Wilkerson's family because he (
has ruined so many lives
including his own family. But
after his time in prison, he can ,
go back to his family. The .
Manns and the- Scotts will ;*
never have their children back '
and my children have to live .


with their disabilities.
I don't feel like all justice has been
served. I have always tried to teach my
children responsibility. I don't feel Mr.
Wilkerson is taking responsibility for
everything that happened. How are
parents supposed to teach their children
responsibility when adults don't show
any?
I hope one day the good Lord will
help me to forgive Mr. Wilkerson, but
today is not that day. I do not have
forgiveness in my heart today. My
children have endured what no child
should have to endure. My children
have suffered as no child should have
to suffer. I had to watch them suffer
and I couldn't do anything about it. I
saw the pain they were in-not for
days or weeks-but for months on end.
For a mother, there cannot be a more
helpless, frustrating feeling in theworld
than to see your child suffer and not be
able to do anything about it. Maybe Mr.
Wilkerson can at least understand that.
I respectfully ask you for only one
thinge- justice for my children and for
the children ,,ho lost their lies in this
traged,. \\ hate er sentence ,ou'
can impose, let II be done
Mr \\ilkeison nij\ foiget me

bus. I have nightmares because I
watched my friends become trapped
and die. I saw everything, and not a
night passes that I don't re-live the
whole thing. When I close my eyes,
that's all I see.
When the accident occurred, we
were letting two students off the bus. I
was turned around [towardthe back of
the bus] talking to Nikki on the two-
way. She was asking me if I was going
to church when I saw the semi coming.
You just take for granted that the
person will stop, but the semi just kept
coming. Then Nikki's car was on fire
and our bus was spinning around. My
friends were literally flying out of the
bus around me. Ricky went first, then
Justin and Diana. We spun more before
we went into the ditch and I was
thrown into a large pine tree. My book
bag was hanging from the back of the
bus when I woke up.
I was lying a little under the bus and
I felt something wet on my face. When
I started looking


around, I saw Cecilia was trapped
between the back seat and the bus, and
her blood was what was dripping down
onto my face and body.
I had blacked out for several minutes
and had hit my head, injured my back
and was cut on my arms and legs.
Because of this accident,, I have
relocated to Orlando in effort to move
past this. However, I find driving and
even riding in a vehicle difficult. I can
only think that the next one will not
stop either and that every day is the
next day of my living nightmare.

Victim impact statement
of Terry and Barbara
Mann, parents of Nikki,
Elizabeth, Johnny and
Heaven Mann and foster
parents of Anthony Lamb
We take no comfort from what is
happening today. There is no joy, no
feeling of relief and no satisfaction or
fini.ilit, foi the loss \e ha\e suffered.
[Thsl' it, iul a horrible da\ for
ever one. for all of the families
.ind friends of the deceased and
injured
In 1093. %e met, my husband
.and I fell in lo e and married.
Tenr.''s daughter. Nikki. was t(o
and one halflears old and %e
began raising Nikki together as a
I'amil'l Nikki '.%as an angelic child
\%ho grew into a wonderful l pre-
teen and eventually: a losing,
casting. compassionate youngg lady.
It \\as partly Nikki's losing and
unselfish spirit that allowed us to
fulfill our dreams of a larger
family through the adoptions of
Elizabeih, .Johnn\ and Heaven.
Elizabeth and Johnn\ came to
us together through a slate-run.
foster-to-adopt program.
TheN


loved ones
were brother and sister and arrived at
our home with many problems and
challenges that children in similar
situations share. Through hard work,,
family support and a lot of love,
Elizabeth and Johnny thrived and truly,
became Manns through and through.
They were loved dearly and are greatly,
missed by every member of our family;
our' friends and all of their friends as
well.
We were later blessed with the
arrival of Heaven through the same
faster-to-adopt program. She came
home with us two days after her birth
and lived as our constant companion
until the day she died. Parents rarely, if.
ever, get the opportunity to adopt a
newborn in this type of program, and
we thanked God every day for the gifts
He gave us. '
The way our children bonded was
nothing short of amazing. Our children
loved, nurtured and helped each other
unconditionally. Our efforts were not a
one-way street. For every ounce of love
we gave our children, we received it
back from them tenfold. Our lives truly
resolved around our family and each
other. At the time of the crash, we
%\ ere finally settling in to the finality of
all of the children's adoptions. No more
court dates, no more custody disputes
and no more worrying about whether
the family would be together forever.
Before the crash, we both possessed
a special gift that we fear we have lost
forever. That gift was the desire and
ability to help, love and raise, not only
our own children, but also other
children in need of a loving home.
Taking needy, at-risk children into our
home, integrating them with our
existing family and watching them
flourish with our help is one of the
most gratifying things we have ever
done. It was truly an addiction.
At the time of the crash, we were
also fostering a beautiful boy named
Anthony. He also died in the crash. We
now have to live with our losses
and we don't yet know whether
we will ever regain the power
and motivation to open our hearts
and home in fear of losing it all
again.
We also lost two beloved
nieces, Ashley and Miranda.
They died within an hour of their
.A first day of school in Lake Butler,
where they had just moved with
.L. their mother, Amanda, to be
closer to their maternal
. grandparents, Edwin and Katie
Scott, and us.

IMPACT:
Continued from p. 7A

After we left the crash scene, we called Edwin
and Katie, our children's only living grandparents.
Within half an hour of their arrival at our house,
Edwin died of a heart attack on our bathroom
floor.
And so now we not only live in the same home
once filled with the laughter, smiles and love
of our children, but we also get dressed, sleep,
shower and live in the same room where our
father took his last breath. Our mother Katie not
only lost six grandchildren and a loved foster
child, she also lost her husband, companion and
best friend for over 50 years. She now lives as the
sole surviving grandparent of this truly broken
family.
Parents should not have to bury their children.
It is not natural and goes against the cycle of
life. Three generations of our family have been
devastated. So, while we must live without our
children, nieces and father, we stand before you in
an attempt to live with the decision of this court.

Victim impact statement of
Amanda Scott, mother of
Ashley Keen and Miranda Finn
No one can argue that there is any greater love
in this world than the love of a parent for a child.
On Jan. 25, 2006, two wonderful, beautiful girls
and their cousins lost their lives senselessly. The
pain caused by the absence of my daughters is
truly more than I can bear.
; I am the mother of Ashley and Miranda.
The horror and nightmare of Jan. 25 is beyond
description for me. My little girls were my entire
life. Through good times and bad, their love for'
.me and my love for them sustained and carried
'us through the trials and tribulations of life.
INow, with them taken from me suddenly, and
unexpectedly, I am lost in a world that I no longer
'recognize-a world that is cold and full of pain.
My pain endures no matter the day, time or
place. The sight of any child even remotely
resembling my daughters causes me unspeakable
pain. To hear the laughter of children, to see a
school yard, or to see a school bus serve only to
bring the nightmare that was Jan. 25 back to the
forefront.
It is no exaggeration to say a large part of me
died when my girls were killed. I am not, and
ban never be, the same person I was before this
nightmare. They were a part of me and now they
're gone. I can never be whole again. Where
there was once laughter, I only
hear silence from their absence.
iWhere there was once sunshine, I
how I only see shadows. I will
never see them marry, never
bold my grandchildren, ,never
hug them, kiss them, or tuck
them into bed at night. I am lost
jvithout them in my world.
Of the many family members
that can and do offer me comfort;
one is missing. A man in whose
arms I could -find comfort: my
father, Edward Scott. If the
torturous pain in the hours after
the crash were not enough, my
ather-grandfather to all of
hese children and father to my
sister Barbara-suffered a heart
attack and died that evening,
likely from the stress and shock
of learning of the death of his
grandchildren. In the hours after
losing my children, I watched'
,py father die. All of the family
has suffered from the loss of
my father, and all of it was so
enseless and so needless.

Victim impact
statement of David
Finn, father of
Miranda Finn
As is true for so many
parents, Miranda's birth brought
into focus a whole new set of
priorities for me. Everything
revolved around Miranda. Even
'though Amanda and I separated
When Miranda was small, I tried
to do, everything to ensure that
Miranda had what she needed,
including the most important
thing of all: lots of love. I spent
almost every weekend with her.
SToday, all I am left with is the
pain of all of this and my visits
to her gravesite to tell her over
and over again how much I miss
and love her. I am changed from
a proud father to someone who
has little live for. I would be
mistaken to not include Ashley,
a stepdaughter I treated as my
own. You would be mistaken if
you believe that losing her did
not also rip my heart. The tears I
have cried over my entire life are
but a drop compared to the tears
I have cried from losing my little
girl and from losing Ashley.
Not a day, not an hour, not
a moment goes by without
something reminding me of my
little girl and how much I miss
her. It is a nightmare that has no
end. When I look to the future,
all that I see is pain and tears.
Miranda was the light in my
life. I lived for Friday afternoon,


pulling into the yard to spend the
weekend with her and watching
her smile light up from ear to
ear. That light was taken from
me forever two and a half years
ago.
In short, Miranda was far and
away the most important thing
in my life. She was my little
girl and I would do anything for
her. I would do anything today
to bring her back. The longing
that I have for her, to be able to
hug her, tell her I love her and to
hear the most precious words in
the world: "Daddy, I love you,"
cause me to suffer pain that is
nothing less than pure torture. It


is an emotional torture that is worse than physical
pain, one that cannot be turned off for there is no
cure...there are no words of comfort that take
the torture away. It will be with me for the rest
of my life.
Having this pain makes it most difficult to
have normal friendships or relationships. The
children of my friends remind me of Miranda.
A healthy relationship with a girlfriend has not
been possible because of the emotional pain that
I go through and with which they must deal. I
can find no purpose in my daily life other than
to make sure my daughter's gravesite is properly
cared for.
I can tell you with confidence that a parent's
life is destroyed when they lose a child. The pain
that it causes affects every single component of
your life. It makes work, relationships, getting up
in the morning, sleeping-at night, and everything
in between impossible to deal with. I am no
farther in putting this behind me than I was the
hour after I learned of my daughter's death.

Joint impact statement of
Amanda Scott and David Finn
The actions of those responsible for the carnage
of Jan. 25 have sentenced us and our families not
to seven years of pain, but rather, to a lifetime of
emotional torture and emotional pain that nothing
and no one can fix.
To Ashley and Miranda, we would say that
your parents and your family love you and miss
you more than words can describe. We know that
you are taking care of each other and that Pap
is taking care of you, but we miss you so very
much. Your absence is more than we can bear. We
and our families thank the court for giving us an
opportunity to speak. Although the court matter
is over, we will live with this pain for the rest of
our lives.

Victim impact statement of
Molly Lewis, Nikki Mann's best
friend
I'm writing this -letter on behalf of my best
friend, Nikki Mann. First off, let me tell you
a little about her. If you were to meet her, you
would never forget her. She had a smile that
could make anyone smile and a sense of humor
that's unforgettable. She and I both had big plans.
Nikki and I both talked a lot about graduating
and going on to college. She wanted to be a nurse
because she liked helping people. Nikki loved
her family, especially her Grandma Mann and
her daddy. Nikki also loved the Lord. When we
both were 14, we asked the Lord into our lives
at youth camp, promising to always be there for


one another.
Nikki was the type of person who would give
you anything you needed. She would go out of
her way to make you happy, but was always
honest and open about how she felt about things.
Jan. 20, 2006, was the last time I saw my friend,
the last time I had my arms around her hugging
her bye, the last time she smiled at me as she
walked away, the last time I heard her laugh.
Now, I know that doesn't mean much, but I
would give anything to see her smile again. You
asked what affect this had on my life. I lost my
best friend. Should I have to say anything else?
We lost being able to walk together to get our
diplomas, so I finished a year early to save from
the hurt. We missed being able to spend birthdays
together. For my 16tn birthday, I went to the
cemetery to lay flowers on her grave. Afterward,
I went to her parent's house. I can remember
walking up the steps like I had many times before
and praying to God that she would answer the
door and it would all just be a bad dream.
In one of the last letters we wrote to one
another, it said we would be friends all the way
to Heaven. Little did I know at the time just what
those words would mean. How has it changed my
life? I have a real emptiness in my heart. It's hard
for me to open up to people. I don't let my heart
get wrapped up with people. When Nikki died,
part of me did to-the childlike side of me- a
part of me that should never die in a person.
Nikki was my piece of Heaven and I miss her
more than I can tell you on this piece of paper, but
I will say this: for the rest of my life until the day
I go home to be with her again, I will not let her
memory die. The fact that Mr. Wilkerson is only
getting a small amount of time for the lives he's
taken disturbs me. I'll have you know my friend's
lives are worth way more than just a sentence of
a few years.
Because of Mr. Wilkerson's carelessness, seven
lives were lost. I wonder if Mr. Wilkerson knows
what it's like, walking into your friend's house
knowing she's no longer there, wishing you could
take the pain away' that her parents have to go
through and knowing there isn't anything you can
do. I can promise you he might not get what he
deserves her on earth, but he will on' day.

We turned on the news that evening and'
witnessed the carnage in our own living room,I
feeling pity for the children and their-families!
while thanking God that our grandchildren were
safe.. Then we got the ph6ne call that would
change our lives forever. The horror of that night
and the misery of the two and a half years since,:
have affected every member of our family. Our
sweet, innocent Miranda was in the car and is
gone from us forever. We grieve every single
day.
Miranda was a bright and shining child,:
cherished by her family, friends, teachers and
schoolmates. She truly loved school and reading.i
I see one of her favorite books and the pain is so
crushing I can't breathe. In a store, I see a girl;
with straight brown hair and start to cry. Seeing
something the color purple-her favorite-willi
make me sigh. Her pictures are all around us, but
they are cold reminders of what we lost. Sadness'
hangs over our family gatherings. When will we
ever reach a point when the pain gets easier to
bear? .
Miranda's birth gave new meaning to her
father's life. Their unconditional love for one
another was there from the start. He was proud of
her every.accomplishment, from learning to tie her
own shoes to ice skating. He comforted her when
a friend moved away and when her dog went
missing. They were in constant communication,
sharing the events in each other's lives. He would
check her homework and she would go online
with his password and check his grades. They
were very close. We try to comfort him, but he
is inconsolable. He will never again know such
a wonderful person as Miranda. He has only his
memories of a happy, smiling, loving little girl
who wanted to grow up and be a paleontologist. In
an instant, she was gone, the victim of someone's'
recklessness and disregard for the lives of others.,
Now despair marks every day of his life. ,
We can only visit her at the cemetery where
she is buried together with her sister, Ashley. We
know that her friends visit her grave because they
leave trinkets and notes. She lives on in the heart
and memories of those who knew and loved her,
but it's a cold comfort.
We hold Alvin Wilkerson responsible for our
loss because he knowingly and deliberately goti
into the driver's seat of the truck when he should
not have been driving. We hold his employer
responsible because they enabled him to drive
more hours than was permitted. Accidents are
unavoidable, so this was no accident. If a model
prisoner, Alvin Wilkerson will only serve five and
a half years, while we have a life sentence. Where
is the justice in that?

The driver of a tractor-trailer

seven counts of vehicular
homicide and 10 counts of
culpable negligence.
The accident occurred when
a school bus carrying nine
children home after school

driver of the car, and
passengers Elizabeth Mann,
15, Johnny Mann, 13, Heaven
Mann, 3, Anthony Lamb, 20
months, Ashley Keen, 13, and
Miranda Finn, 8. All of the
'children were from the same
family, with Finn and Keen
being cousins of the Mann
children. Finalization of
Lamb's adoption into the
Mann family was to take place
the day following the crash.
All of the students on the
bus were injured-some
critically when they were
thrown from the bus. The
driver was also thrown from
the bus and seriously injured.
Some of the children had to

An investigation revealed
that, except for a short nap,
Wilkerson had been awake at
least 34 hours when the crash


took place. Prosecutors said
the state was prepared to prove
beyond a shadow of a doubt
that Wilkerson acted in a
reckless manner. They were


also prepared to show that on
the date of the accident (and in
the preceding days), Wilkerson

decisions, such as driving over


the maximum allowable hours

Shands Starke's emergency room has expanded from five patient beds to 10 after
a $4 million expansion project. Pictured inside the new facility are (l-r) Dr. Molly
Addison, Joanie Browning, RN, Rhonda Wilson, RN, and Beth Johnson, RN-BSN.


Expanded ER now fully


operational in Starke


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
The waiting is over in one
sense, which will lead to less
waiting in another.
Shands Starke's renovation
of its emergency room is
complete. As a consequence,
patients will see their wait
times decrease as the facility
has expanded from five beds to
10.
"We can see more patients
efficiently," Dr. Molly
Addison said.
In addition, Shands Starke
has implemented a fast track
program six days a week. That
allows patients visiting the
emergency room with minor
conditions to experience less
of a wait time as well as an
area of the emergency room is
reserved for them.
The construction project
consisted of two phases, with
the first-an addition to the
existing emergency room-
being completed in late
February. The second phase
was a renovation of the
existing emergency room area.
The result? An emergency
room that has increased from
3,100 square feet to 7,400
square feet, thanks to more
than $4 million put forth by
Shanids HealthCare to fund the
project. ,.
"We 'rTe-eally fortunate to
have Shands HealthCare invest
those kinds of resources in
Bradford County," said
Jeannie Baker, Shands Starke
administrator.
Addison said the old
emergency room seemed like
working out of a closet in
comparison to the new facility.
"It's nice to have all this
space," she said. "It's bright
and roomy in here."
Patients not only benefit
from being seen in a more
timely manner, but they can
experience more privacy as
well. The old emergency room
consisted of beds that were
separated only by curtains. The


new facility has separate
rooms for patients.
Also, a divider was
constructed to separate the
admittance desk from the rest.
of the lobby.
"That's the key for us-


privacy," Baker said.
A new nurses' station has
been constructed with
equipment that allows those
who man the station to monitor

McClellan will be remembered

for all of the wrong reasons


SScott McClellan,.the bright young
Texan, has staked out a place in
history that places his name alongside
two other turncoats, Judas Iscariot
and Benedict Arnold. Ostensibly, his
book "What Happened Inside the
Bush White House and Washington's
Culture of Deception" was written for
financial gain, but thinking along that
line would be in error; the motive, like
those of his historical predecessors,
was revenge for failure to recognize
his fancied outstanding ability and
unwavering loyalty.
Apparently, he saw himself as an
unappreciated genius parroting a
company line with which he did not
agree. In writing a book that refutes
his actions as White House press
secretary, he sets himself up as being
hypocritical at best, and a traitor to his
benefactor at worst.
McClellan is the scion of a
prominent Texas family. His father,
Barr McClellan, graduated from the
University of Texas Law School with
honors and became a partner in a
well-known Texas law firm. In 1977,
he established a private practice but
later surrendered his license in lieu
of disciplinary action in reference
to litigation with an Austin bank.
Researchers are referred to the State
Bar of Texas, Chief of Disciplinary
Counsel for information on his
disbarment.
Barr McClellan is the father of
three other sons: Mark McClellan,
former Food and Drug administrator
and former director of medicine in
the Bush administration, and Dudley
McClellan and Bradley McClellan,
who are both practicing attorneys in
Austin.
Barr McClellan now lives in
Gulfport, Miss., with his second wife,
---Cectl. Heis theiauithor of a book,
"Blood, Money and Power," in which
he alleges that President Lyndon B.
Johnson was a conspirator in the
assassination of President John F.
Kennedy.
McClellan's mother, Carole Keeton
McClellan, is the daughter of W.
Page Keeton and Judge Madge Anna
Stewart Keeton. Her father was the
longtime dean of the Texas Law
School and renowned expert on' tort
law.
Carole Keeton McClellan Strayhorn
was the thrice married Texas state
comptroller and former candidate for
Texas governor.
McClellan came to the attention of
Texas Gov. George W. Bush while
he worked in his mother's campaign
for the comptroller's office, and in
1999 began working in the Bush
campaign as deputy communications
director. He then worked briefly


Fri. 'June 20" 8-11pm


for a Texas senator before going to
Washington, D.C., to work in the.--
Bush administration. In May 2003,
McClellan became the White House
press secretary, a position he would
hold until he resigned from the
position April 19, 2006.
McClellan became more than
a political appointee: He became a
family friend during the seven years,of
his association with the president. No
reason was given for his resignation
from the White house position, but
he later remarked that he had been
"forced out."
During his tenure he gave every
indication of being a loyal and
supportive Bush administrative
employee, and his book caught
everyone, including Bush, by surprise.
What could possibly motivate a
friend and employee to write a book
castigating his former employer?
Doesn't he understand that every
employee serves at the pleasure of
his superior? Collective bargaining
provides some job security, but
political jobs, such as McClellan's
position, are vulnerable to change
for the sake of change and has no
permanency. By its very nature, the
press secretary is one of short tenure,
and McClellan held the position
longer than average tenures.
The two despotic traitors of history
didn't turn on their benefactors because
of money, nor has McClellan. Judas
Iscariot received 30 pieces of silver
for his betrayal, but his real complaint
was envy of Disciples Peter and John
and the resultant anger of not being
recognized for his self-proclaimed
abilities. Benedict Arnold, admittedly
was an outstanding American Army
Officer in the American Revolution,
but in his own mind he wasn't
properly recognized for his genius-
like ability and sought recognition by-
deserting to the British and accepting
a commission in the Redcoat Army.
He died a man without a country.
McClellan has now received his 15
minutes on the world's stage and will
receive a trifling sum from the sale
of his book, but the price he will pay
for "getting even" will far exceed the
monetary gains from this episode in
his life.
Bush was extremely' kind and
gracious in his remarks concerning
the publication of the book in saying,
"Scott, we now know, is disgruntled
about his experience at the White
House. We are puzzled. It is sad. This
is not the Scott we knew."
Bush is right. It is sad to see a young
person with so much promise destroy
himself in a fit of anger. Once again
we see the Peter Principal at work.

Thanks to
Whytsell
Dear Editor:
I Would like to take this
opportunity to thank Bradford
High School Principal RandN
Whytsell for his time, effort
and dedication to the children
of Bradford County.
My child has been a part of
the band since the seventh
grade, and in that five years
there have been many band
functions that I have attended.
In that time I have never
seen a principal or other
member of the school
administration attend a concert
when they did not have a child
in the band.
This year, however, Mr.
Whytsell made time to attend
the end-of-the-year concert.
which impressed me greatly.
Mr. Whytsell was applauding
every song the children
performed.
Again, thank you Mr.
Whytsell. You have touched a
lot of hearts of children and
parents with your support. You
show that you are not there for
just the money.
God bless you,
Sincerely
Lisa Dugger

Merchant

Dear Editor:
I would like the people of
Starke to know what
considerate merchants they
have.
I arrived in the Keystone
area for a visit and discovered
at 7:30 p.m. that I didn't have
a bottle for my oxygen
concentrator. I called the 24-
hour line at Home Respiratory
Care on Temple Avenue in
Starke. I got the manager. He
was at church and said he
would meet me at the store. He
gave me what I needed and
would not accept any money
for it.
Thank you for having this
type of merchant in your town.

Bikefest
Letter to the Editor:
The third annual Starke
Bikefest is now history. While
I have heard some complaints
about the gate fee, I have also
heard positive comments about
the number of bike-related
---vendors, the number and
quality of bands, and even
some who said the crowd was
as large or larger than in the
past-but I leave that
judgment to the ones who were
there, I had. a business to run
and could not attend, which
brings me to the point of this
letter.
I am part owner of a
business in Bradford County
that benefits from an event like
the Bikefest. To make the
festival happen, it takes
advertising, rental of the
fairgrounds, electrical and
water hook-ups, contracts with
bands and more-all of which
costs money. To obtain some
of this money beforehand, the
chamber of commerce solicits
contributions from local
businesses.


Imagine my dismay when I
reviewed the list of businesses
that sponsored the event and
saw that most were the ones
who would benefit the least. At
least a couple that pledged
failed to follow up. Most every
business in Starke and the
immediate surrounding area
benefits directly or indirectly
from the festival, especially
those engaged in the rental of
rooms, and sales of alcohol,
food and gas. Based on my
own experience I have a high
level of confidence that many
restaurants, bars, fast food
establishments and gas stations
had sales beyond their normal
Friday, Saturday and Sunday
receipts, some far in excess. If
there is a Bikefest next year, it
will be the 40th anniversary of
"Easy Rider" (the movie) and I
would like to think the
chamber has something special
planned.
Between now and then, 'all
business owners need to think
about supporting, this event
financially and also think
about what we, as individual
businesses, can do to make the
visitors enjoy their stay and
want to visit Starke at times
other than just the festival,
even if it is nothing more than
great customer service, good
food and fun.
Perhaps if businesses
contribute enough, the gate fee
will go away. It does not exist
at other festivals and would
probably lead to greater
participation and therefore
more money spent locally.
Remember, it takes money
to make money and a good
impression as a business to a
customer during the festival is
a year's worth of cheap
advertising for your business
and the community.

Against same-
sex marriage
Dear Editor:
As the people on the pro side
of the issue of same-sex
marriage have their say, I have
the same right to be against it.
This is called freedom of
speech."
This world is like God made
it, but humans have made a
mess out of it.
Aren't you glad that it was,
Adamfi ind Eve in the"Garden
of Eden instead of Adam and
Steve? This would be" a
lonesome place. I haven't seen,
heard, or read where two men-
or two women gaxe birth.
In the Bible in Genesis, the
second chapter, 281h verse, it
says be fruitful and multiply.
How in the world can two of
the same sex do that?
In Leviticus, eighth chapter,
22nd verse, it says a man shall
not lie with a man as a woman.
It is an abomination. God did
not intend for people to have
lifestyles this way. He doesn't
make mistakes and this would
have been one.
I believe the lust for
adventurous sex is what this is
all about. These kind of people
know it's wrong. If not, why
did they hide in a closet so
long? Then when some states
started making it legal for
same-sex marriage, they came
from hiding and began being.
boastful. I don't care what
anybody says about this, I'll


stand on God's word. God says
it's an abomination.
God took a rib from Adam
and created Eve for his
helpmate. This is proof that
same-sex marriage is wrong.
This is my opinion, and there
are a lot more who feel the
same way. We Christians
should stand up and be
counted. We sat idly and let an
atheist have our cross removed
from the Starke water tank.
Let's not do that on the issue
of same-sex marriage. God
bless America.
Sincerely,
Mitchell Brown
Lawtey

CRASH
Continued from page 1 B

heard from those affected by
the crash, including Mary
Murphy, the mother of two
children critically injured on
the bus.
"My son, Richard, who is
now 18, was pronounced dead
twice that day-once at the
scene and again at Shands
Hospital," Murphy said. "My
daughter, Diana, is a 15-year-
old girl who will never be able
to wear a bathing suit, skirt or
a dress... the injury to her leg
was so massive that they won't
ever be able to do
reconstructive surgery."
Wilkerson, who held his
head down and was in tears as
he listened to the statements,
also spoke and apologize three
times to the families.
"I listened to your comments
and I truly am sorry for what
happened," Wilkerson said.
Wilkerson said he suffers
daily, and that the only way he
makes it through is by asking
God daily to forgive him.
"I am not a heartless
person," he said.' "Please don't
look at me as a heartless
person."
Giunta, in his statement to
the court before sentencing,
apologized for losing his
composure.
"There is no one here today
that wants to be here," Giunta
said. "I lack the capacity to
inflict pain upon Mr.
Wilkerson that would be able
to take away the pain and
loneliness felt by these
families."
As part of the plea deal, the
manslaughter charges were
dropped. Also, if called upon
to testify in any suits relating
to the case, Wilkerson had to
agree to do so.:
Before closing, the judge
asked if anyone else wanted to
speak. Amanda Scott, the
mother of sisters Miranda Finn

years old and driving the car,"
Scott said. "I want everyone to
realize that bus No. 13 was our
kids' bus. Had they not been in
the car stopped behind the bus,
they would have been on it."
Most of the families there
had ,hoped for a lengthier
sentence, but some were just
glad for it to finally be over
with. Because of the plea,
there will be no trial where the
surviving children, witnesses
and families are called to the
stand to relive what took place
on Jan. 25,2006.
Prosecutors said this case is
the first in Florida where a
truck driver was sentenced to
prison for culpable negligence
for falling asleep behind the
wheel.

every patient in the emergency
room. New beds are equipped
with the technology to weigh
patients for emergency room
staff, while new touch-screen
monitors can be transported
with patients.
Patients who have to be
prepped for diagnostic tests or
.who are awaiting those results
can now watch television to
help pass the time as each
patient room has a flat-screen
television.
Emergency room nurse
Rhonda Wilson said many
patients have noticed the
changes and have responded
favorably to them.
"It's just so modern
looking," Wilson said of the
new-look facility.
To achieve that modern-
looking facility, the hospital
and its customers had to under
go some inconveniences.
Baker thanked the members of
the community for their
understanding during the
process.
"We appreciate their
tolerance and their patience in
working with us," she said.
Part of the lobby area had to
be closed after the first phase
of the project was completed.,
-which led to some confusion..
'"Pedple weren't sure exactly
where to go," Baker said. "We
had to close part of the
registration area, and the


Starke to host
Babe Ruth
tournament
The city of Starke
Recreation Department will
host this year's District 6 Babe
Ruth minor and major 50/70
all-star tournament Thursday-


whole thing was closed at one
time."
The gift shop manned by the
Shands Auxiliary had to be
closed, which left members
selling items out of carts in
various places in the hospital.
The gift shop will reopen soon
in a new area of the hospital,
and auxiliary members are
very happy to have a new
information desk in the lobby,
Baker said.
"They were moved around
quite a bit," Baker said of the
auxiliary members.
Parking, at times, was a
challenge, Baker said as
portions of the parking lot had
to be closed.
Also, as with any
construction project, there was
dust and noise.
"We tried to encapsulate
everything," Baker said.
"Sometimes, there's nothing
you can do about construction
noise."
It would seem a small price
to pay, though, for a
satisfactory end result.
"The staff is really happy,"
Baker said. "Everything's so
new and modern. The patients
are satisfied."
An advisory committee,
comprised of community
members, was instrumental in
the expansion project. The
comminee reported to Shands
: HealthCare that one ol the

there was a need for
expansion. The Shands Starke
emergency room received
15,000 patient visits in fiscal
year 2007, with growth
projected at 3-4 percent
annually.
Dr. Kevin McBride, who
serves as Shands Starke chief
of staff, said during the
February grand opening of the
emergency room addition that
staff had done a good job in
the five-room facility that had
served as the emergency room
for 21 years. Yet thLe facility
had limitations when
compared to emergency rooms
of larger hospitals.
"Now, I think we can
certainly give even better
comprehensive care to this
community and surrounding
communities," McBride said in
February.

Shands Auxiliary recognizes officers, accomplishments


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraplh Staff Writer
It ma\ have been a little bit
of a do\vn Near, but the results
\\ere still ros) as the Shands
Starke Auxiliary raised
approximately $30,000 and
made $20,000 worth of
donations.
The auxiliary held its annual
banquet on June 12, officially
inducting its officers for the
2008-09 year. Linda Johns will
serve as president. She will be
joined by Valeria Shuford
(first vice president), Sylvia
Brown (second vice president),
Peggy Godwin (secretary),
Judy Hansen (corresponding
secretary) and Carolyn Eaves
(treasurer).
Dolores Morgan presented
her report as -outgoing
treasurer. She said the
auxiliary not only had to deal
with an economy that has
limited people's spending, but
the closing of its gift shop
because of construction at the
hospital that expanded the
emergency room. (The
auxiliary still sold items from
carts; a new gift shop, along
with a chapel, will open soon.)
Still, the auxiliary turned a
profit of approximately $2,500
from sales of gift shop items. It
also raised approximately
$8,000 by selling food at the
Bradford County Fair, with the
rest of its money being raised
through book, jewelry and
uniform sales.
That, along with other
fundraising projects, allowed
the auxiliary to donate $10,000
to the emergency room
reserve, raising that total to
$40,960, which will be used to
purchase a new piece of
equipment. The auxiliary also
donated $5,000 to its Santa Fe
Community College
scholarship endowment,
bringing that total to a little
more than $100,000, and
$5,000 toward the new chapel.


Morgan said the money
raised was not as much as the
previous year, but "the
auxiliary should be proud of
these accomplishments."
The auxiliary is composed of
volunteers who work i:i
various departments in the
hospital and at Shands Medical
Group. Eighty-three active
members worked a total of
11,671 hours.
Fundraisers and gift shop
sales go toward purchasing
equipment for the hospital and
funding activities such as an
annual Christmas tea and
spring ice cream social for
hospital employees.
Morgan said the auxiliary ,
has played its role in helping
the hospital evolve over. the
years, but it also received
support from every employee
at the hospital. Referencing the
saying, "It takes a village to
raise a child,"' Morgan said,
"I'd like to change that a bit to
say it takes every hospital
employee, every hospital
auxiliary member and so
many, many community
donations in time and money
to build a hospital we can all
be proud of. Thanks to the
people who work so hard at
Shands and donate everything
to Shands. We are proud of our
hospital.
"I think back to when my
children were born at the old
Bradford Hospital. We have
come a long way, baby."
Johns recognized the
auxiliary's seven new
members: Mary Ann Andrews,
Marty Berry, Iva Jean Harrell,
Jeanne Moody, Pat Muse,
Brenda Stroud and Steve
Fuqua, who was voted in at the
banquet. Johns also mentioned
three members who died this
past year: Jenelle Hardesty,
Joyce Riherd. and Marjorie
Thomson.
"Those shoes will not be
easy to fill," Johns said. "They

did work, work, work beyond
what we can imaginee"
Every auxiliary fimember
received a small bouquet of
flowers. Member Gertrude
Griffis read aloud the name of
each member along with the
number of hours she or he has


worked since being an
auxiliary member.
The 2008-09 officers, upon
being inducted, were each
presented with different
colored roses, with each color
signifying the attributes or that
particular office. Shands


Starke Administrator Jeannie
Baker, who inducted the
officers, asked them to
remember the colors of their
roses and their symbolism as
the prepare to serve this year.
However, Baker said a rose
cannot grow without nurturing,


words of kindness and diligent
work. It is up to every member
of the, auxiliary, she said, to
"ork 'together to ensure that
'the auxiliary, like a rose,
blooms.
"Officers alone do not make
an organization," Baker said.

Members spent approximately
two hours each in Starke and

Alvarez said the support he


and his fellow Masons
received in Lake Butler last
year-the groups' first time
waving flags and passing out
bumper stickers in that city-
was encouraging.

"The reaction of the people
passing by was just great,"
Alvarez said. "People would
drive by and blow their horns,
wave and salute. It was really
great the way the community
and the people passing through
accepted it."
