Locals walking to beat cancer April 8-9


BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer

How far would you walk to help a
family member or neighbor beat cancer?
This Friday and Saturday, hundreds of
area residents will answer that question
without hesitation as they participate in
the American Cancer Society's Relay
for Life.
The event will take place on Friday
and Saturday, April 8-9, at the Union
County High School football field. The
event will begin at 6 p.m. Friday and last
the whole night through until Saturday
morning-18 hours.
A total of 17 teams from all over the
county are running full steam ahead to
collect funding for the American Cancer
Society-funding that will help local
cancer patients in a wide variety of ways,
in addition to helping fund research to
.beat the disease.
The theme of this year's event is
"Game On-Join the Fight!" and relay
teams will be challenged to- bring the
spirit of their favorite sports team to the
event in the form of costumes, decora-
tions, etc.
Each team will have at least one per-
son on the track at all times from the
beginning of the relay to the end-and
each team has used a variety of methods'
to raise funds to be donated to ACS.

2 men sought in


strong-arm robbery


BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
Investigators from the Union
County Sheriff's Office (UCSO)
are seeking two men in relation to a
strong-arm robbery that took place in
Providence on the morning of April
4.
According to UCSO Capt..Garry
Seay, a female resident of a home on
C.R. 238 had just returned from tak-
ing her child to school. When she got
out of her vehicle at her home, two
men approached her and asked if they
could use her phone because their ve-
hicle had broken down.
Seay said that the woman was pre-
paring to go into her home and get a
phone book for the men when one of
them grabbed her from behind and
forced her into a brick wall.
The other man removed her wallet
and some other items from her vehi-
cle. They both-then fled the area. The


victim sustained minor injuries in the
incident.
A K-9 team from Reception and
Medical Center, along with officers
from the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, tracked
the men through a heavily wooded
area, but were unable to locate them.
One of the men was white and the
other was black, but detailed descrip-
tions are not available at this time.
Seay said there is also no description
available of the men's vehicle.
Anyone with any information
about this incident should call UCSO
at 386-496-2501.

A Providence man was arrested-
April 1 and charged with obstruction
of justice, but he is suspected of oper-
ating a dog- and chicken-fighting ring
and a multitude of other charges may
soon be filed against him.
Eric S. Cox, 44, of Lake Butler is
currently in the Union County Jail un-
der a $200,000 bond for a charge of
harassing a victim or informant.
According to Lt. Lyn Williams of
the Union County Sheriffs Office
(UCSO), investigation is continu-
ing and other charges may soon be
filed against Cox-related to animal
cruelty, felony dog fighting, felony
chicken fighting and drug offenses.
A multi-county, multi-agency task
force worked on the extensive inves-
tigation that led to Cox's arrest on
April 1 and valuable information was
received from the dog fighting tip
line operated by the Humane Society
of the United States (877-TIP-HSUS
or 877-847-4787). Rewards of up to
$5,000 are offered for information
related to animal fighting operations.


The identities of people calling the tip
line are protected.
The Humane Society cooperated
with UCSO, BUSTED (a coopera-
tive investigative unit that includes
UCSO, the Bradford County Sher-
iffs Office and Starke Police Depart-
ment), and the SWAT team from the
Alachua County Sheriffs Office. The
investigation resulted in the raid on
April 1 that confiscated 24 dogs and
approximately 100 chickens from
Cox's property. Humane Society rep-
resentatives said that the animals had
injuries associated with animal fight-
ing.
"Animal fighting is a criminal un-
derground industry that breeds hor-
rible animal suffering and violence,"
said Chris Schindler, manager of
animal fighting investigations for
HSUS. Schindler commended all the
agencies involved in helping put "an
end to the cycle of violence for these
animals."

Worthington Springs investigation continues


BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
Assistant State Attorney Spencer
Mann said Monday that the investigation
into the financial practices of the town of
Worthington Springs is continuing, but
no charges have been filed as yet.
"We're still in the homework phase,"
said Mann. "We've met with numerous
individuals and reviewed hundreds of
pages of documents that cover a multi-
year period of time."
Mann said it was impossible to say


when the state attorney's office would
come to a decision on whether or not to
file charges ofanyskind. "We've subpoe-
naed a boatload of documents, both from
Worthington Springs and Tallahassee.
We are still in the process of reviewing
it all."
While officials have not confirmed the
focus of the investigation, a recent audit
cited a number of questionable payments
made to vendors using state grant funds
received by the town. The auditing agen-
cy is required to report certain deficien-
cies to the state and it is up to the state to


decide if further action is taken.
SAccording to the audit report for the
fiscal year which ended Sept. 30, 2009,
Worthington Springs 'received grant
funds from the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection for
improvements to Chastain-Seay Park
and City Hall Park. Funds were then
paid to STEM Line Services LLC, and
Sierra Corp. as sub-contractors on the
projects. Those two companies are
owned by former Worthington Springs

Volunteers needed
as organization is
stillin formative
stage

BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
A small number of families
have already been helped as
the Union County Food Pantry
makes its way through the reg-
istration and incorporation pro-
cesses-processes it must com-
plete before beginning official
operation as a separate entity.
For now, it is operating under
-the auspices of the Bradford Food
-Pantry, with assistance from Ar-
:ley McRae of Starke.
Canned goods are being col-
lected, however, and arrange-
ments are being made to store
other types of food items.
John and Cassandra Johnson
of Lake Butler are driving forc-
es behind the effort, along with
a multitude oY volunteers. John
Johnsoi said he and his wife
had seen how the Bradford Food
Pantry helped people and wanted
to see a similar service brought to
the people of Union County.


"We've been working on this
(effort) for two years now," said
Johnson. The process necessary
to charter the organization for-
mally began about three months
ago and is finally drawing to
completion. A board of trustees
has been formed to guide the
group and a location has been
found.
The food pantry's home-is cur-
rently the old fire truck bay at
the former Lake Butler City Hall
location-now housing both
Roberts Insurance and the Union
County Times on Main Street in
Lake Butler. The use of the loca-
tion was donated by Scott Rob-
erts and John Miller, owners of
the two businesses.
Some shelving is already avail-
able and more was being added
this week. The group currently
has two refrigerators and will be
seeking freezers to use for stor-
ing perishable food items.
McRae said that, while the
group is still in its infancy, he is
very encouraged by its progress.
"The interest is overwhelming,"
said McRa "They have some
very dedicated people."
Of course, setting up a non-
profit organization requires some
hoop jumping and the group is


still in the process of finalizing
all that paperwork. Once the pa-
perwork is done, the group's full
efforts can turn to collecting food
for the hungry. "I would just cau-
tion everyone to be patient. It
will happen slowly. They just
need to keep plugging at it," said
McRae.
Families who need assistance
can register beginning next week
Monday-through Friday from 1-4
p.m. at the old fire truck bay next
to Roberts Insurance. Donations
to the food pantry can also be
made at that time or by call 386-
496-3745.
Food items, cash or checks are

SREC serves variety of needs for local senior citizens


BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer

If a senior citizen's health
needs require constant attention
and there is not a family member
who is able to provide for those
needs, then a nursing home is a
viable option.
However, there are services
available to Union County's el-
ders that are aimed at postpon-
ing. that option. "Our purpose
is to provide services that al-
low our elders to remain in their
own homes as long as possible,"
said Suwannee River Economic
Council (SREC) Service Aide
Lala Redmond.
According to SREC Execu-
tive Director Frances Terry,
the average cost for a nursing
home is approximately $50,000
per person per year in this area
of Florida. If the elderly person
doesn't have the means (through
personal funding or insurance) to
pay that cost, it often falls on the
shoulders of taxpayers.
If the elderly person can re-
main in their own home with
services provided by SREC, the
cost is significantly lower. It var-
ies, of course, depending on the
senior's health and whether or
not they have assistance from
family but the average SREC
care plan ranges from $5,000 to
$20,000 per year.
SRECacts like a clearing house
for a variety of services for aging
citizens. Probably the most well-

reason, many wind up not eating

Proposed legislation SPB 7204 and HB 89 would remove your right to read
public notices in newspapers restricting them to government web sites
only. The public's right to know cannot be abandoned in favor of presumed
cost savings, which are elusive.

Public Notices must be publicly accessible
53.6% of Floridian's over,65 do not have access to the internet*
28.1% of African-Americans in Florida do not have access to the internet*
34.6% of Hispanics in Florida do not have access to the internet*
In addition to printed newspapers, Florida's newspapers provide a supplemental
public notice web site, www.floridapublicnotices.com, allowing free and unlimited
searchable access to public notices aggregated from Florida newspapers.

Government posting of government notices on government websites takes away
third-party neutrality
Making government officials responsible for notifying the public on their own
websites carries with it a potential for abuse. For example, it may create the
temptation to change or manipulate the timing of public notices. If a scheduled
public notice is not published or contains false information, the newspaper is more
likely to catch the mistake.

Public Notices must be archived In a secure and accessible format
The internet does not provide as reliable an archival history of public notices as
newspapers due to its vulnerability in the form of hackers, viruses, and downed
servers.

Governmental websites do not provide legal affidavits and written proof of
publication and a secure and verifiable paler trail
State and local governments, attorneys and private citizens rely on this
documentation to ensure that these notices were published timely and lawfully, as
newspapers are required by law to do.

also provided for those who need
assistance in maintaining their
home.
For seniors who don't need
much assistance, but who don't
have family or friends who
check on them regularly, SREC
also provides a phone reassur-
ance program. A call is placed to
the senior each day to make sure
they are all right and to check on
their needs.
For seniors who have caregiv-
ers, there is also a respite service.
SREC provides temporary assis-
tance to the senior so the care-
giver can take care of personal
business, run errands orjust have
a break once in a while.
SREC can also assist caregiv-
ers in applying for Home Care
for the Elderly (HCE) funding.
Since a person who is acting as
a senior's caregiver can usually
not work full time and often ex-
periences increased costs due to
the senior's needs, HCE provides
a monthly subsidy (usually $106
per month) that helps offset some
of those costs. The money can be
used to provide for the senior's
everyday needs.
Most seniors are on a fixed
income, so SREC also helps eli-
gible seniors apply for Medicaid
waiver funds that will pay for
medical supplies. They can also

assist with applications for the
Emergency Home Energy As-
sistance for the Elderly Program.
That program provides emergen-
cy help to the elderly in paying
their electricity bills so they can
maintain necessary heat or cool-
ing in their homes.
SREC even provides a nutri-
tion counselor through funding
through the Department of El-
der Affairs. Many seniors don't
eat right, so a counselor from
the University of Florida comes
to Lake Butler and presents pro-
grams that teach seniors how to
make sure they are meeting their
nutritional needs to maintain
their health.
Funding for the programs pro-
vided by SREC come from both
state and federal sources. Not
every senior receives every ser-
vice. "It depends on their situa-
tion what they are eligible for,"
said Redmond. The seniors ap-
ply to SREC and Case Manager

tions in Gainesville screens the
applications to determine what
services can be provided to the

ville at 800-963-5337.

have to come from us," said
Redmond. "We have a referral
program where we put them in
touch with a provider who can
assist them. We try to help any
way we can."
In addition to the variety of
services provided to seniors 6Q
and older, SREC also oversees
some programs for assistance
to low-income people who are
not senior citizens. Applications
for these programs are handled
through SREC.
The Low Income Home En-
ergy Assistance Program (LI-
HEAP) uses federal money to,
help low-income families with
heating and cooling costs.
The Community Services
Block Grant (CSBG) uses fed-
eral money to assist low-income
people who are attempting to get
education and training to get a
better job. These funds can help.
with the cost of classes, repair to
a vehicle for transportation to the
classes and even gas.

The Weatherization Program
provides money to low-income
people-for insulation, weather::
stripping and caulking, replace-
ment doors and windows and
even repair or replacement for
heating and cooling units. This:
helps reduce the energy cost for

FCAT: grading Flbrida schools, teachers and students


The Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Testing System
(FCAT) is a plan for teaching
students meaningful subjects
geared toward preparing the
student for college, grading the
student during the formative
school years. grades'3-10, grad-
ing the school staff and the
school, rewarding successful
students and penalizing the un-
successful. As the name of the
project suggests, it is a compre-
hensive system with rewards
and penalties. The winners gain
an excellent education in mean-
ingful subjects and a high school
diploma to attest his or her ac-
complishment. The less success-
ful student, based on his failure
of the tenth grade FCAT test


(after three attempts) receives a
certificate of attendance.
It is a complex system for im-
proving the American secondary
school system, the completion of
which will prepare a student for
the rigors of college, and life
beyond fornial schooling. The
student will have learned, or at
least will have been exposed to
subjects utilized in the world of
work and play, prepare him for
college or career level the play-
ing field for American youth.
It is a tough program, and
American youth will definitely
move up in the world of knowl-
edge, competing with the youth
of other nations that have sur-
passed the United States in edu-
cation.

I took a few moments to visit
with Trace Youngblood from
Bryceville. Trace and his sister
Bethany have been working as
volunteers in our Fernandina
office and I was happy to have

week. This is a chance for our
youth to gain a firsthand look
at the legislative process and
become familiar with the details
of their government. I am proud
to have so many outstanding
youth serve in the page and
messenger program.
That afternoon, we were back
on the House floor for Third
Reading. Third Reading is where
members engage in debate on a
bill. I was very excited when the
speaker asked the clerk to unlock
the machine and members were
asked to record their vote; my
K2 bill passed with 105 for and
13 against. This is one of the
very first member bills to pass
this legislative session, which is
a big deal.
Friday I met with legislators
regarding the proposal for
privatization of Northeast
Florida State Hospital (NEFSH).
With the budget reductions
in both the Senate and House
budget proposals, .NEFSH will
incur a 10 percent cut. This
will result in a daily operating
cost of approximately $264 per
day. The privately contracted
facilities run by GEO Care, did
NOT incur any reductions last
year and none are proposed in
this year's budget. Their cost
at the GEO Care facilities is
roughly $315 per day. Since the
proviso language in the Senate
budget does not seek a defined
reduction, it is quite possible
that the privatization effort at
NEFSH could result in increased
costs to Florida.
There has been no study
that shows privatization is a
state policy that has saved the
taxpayers money. Normally you
seek to privatize when there
are quality of care issue (this
is clearly not the case) or when
there are cost issues (which again


is not the case). So absent good
logic I fail to see the benefits
of expanding the state policy
of privatization among mental
health treatment facilities.
The afternoon began with
my final meeting for the
week, Select Committee on
Government Reorganization.
We voted on two proposed
committee bills dealing with
economic development. Taken
together, these two bills create
and provide a dedicated source
of revenue to the State Economic
Enhancement and Development
(SEED) Trust Fund to enable
Florida to be proactive and
better positioned to capitalize on
opportunities that will benefit
the state from an economic-
development perspective.. The
SEED Trust Fund will be used
to fund strategic transportation
investments, affordable housing,
and economic development

businesses to the state and retain

I Letters to
the Editor
Removal of US
flags is
unacceptable
Dear Editor:
Once again, the City of Key-
stone Heights Public Works
Department has removed all of
the US flags located at the
cemetery, including those at the
veterans memorial site.
This desecration of gravesites
has to be one of the most incon-
giderate, disrespectful, selfish,
~nd downright mean acts that
dan be bestowed on the people
who are buried in this cemetery.
There are US veterans in that
cemetery that fought and died
for their country while defend-
ing this flag. My late business
partner, Bob Canady, went to h'is
grave carrying the wounds that
he incurred defending this coun-
try so that the city employees, as
well as everyone else in this
community can enjoy our free-
dom.
I personally had two premium
flags located at Canady's grave-
site. This is the second time that
the city employees have summa-
rily removed these flags, for no
apparent reason. My flags were
not the ones placed by the AM-
VETS, but. purchased by me,
and they were NOT in the way
Or otherwise an impediment to
the, mowing of grass in the
cemetery!
Personally, I am very disap-
pointed that such blatant disre-
gards and disrespect to veterans
juried in this cemetery contin-
(es to be displayed by the city
employees. It is completely un-
called for, and unacceptable. I
Certainly hope that this is the last
incident of this nature.

t,070 animals came through oir

ince in these numbers? We are
dedicated to the humane treat-
fnent of all animals through the
education of the public about the

and program speakers.
We all learned that a combi-
nation of exercise and proper
nutrition are critical to weight
loss. I lost 46 pounds and have
discovered that exercise can be
both fun and rewarding. All
these years, I dreaded exercis-
ing. Now I realize that I have to
change my lifestyle with proper
nutrition and exercise. This
change will help with diabetes
control and lower blood pres-
sure. Our group became close
and offered encouragement and
support. We are planning a fol-
low-up party in July to check on
our continued weight loss.

Biggest Losers
were winners
Dear Editor:
We are all winners, there are
no losers. We have all won back
our desire to live healthier lives.
We have won new friends. We
have connected closer to our
loved ones.
We have learned that good,
wholesome food in our bodies
supplies the energy we need to
take care of ourselves. We have
gained a wealth of information
that will help to sustain us on the
next leg of our journey to a
healthier lifestyle, and holistic
living.
We have learned to value our-


selves as well as others. We
have learned that it is not the
amount of weight that we have
lost that will make us winners,
but it's the gaining of an inner
peace with who we are and be-
ing okay with it.
We may not be the person that
others want us to be, but we are
who we want to be. We have
learned that eating right, exercis-
ing and healthy living are the
ingredients to longevity. We
have pledged our commitment
to living healthier lives. We are
all winners.
We are the biggest losers of
doubt and in exchange, we have
all gained confidence in our-
selves, and come to realize we
