At sentencing Tuesday
Family of murder victim
confronts killer in letters
By ANGELA M. CASTELUCCI
Sandra Lee Espinoza was
just 22 years old when she
was murdered and her body
discarded along a Taylor County
roadway in February 1988.
She left behind a three-year-
old daughter and a family
devastated by her death.
On Tuesday, her loved ones
finally had their voices heard and
were able to confront her killer
through a series of letters read
during the sentencing hearing
for Kenneth Lee Knight, 52.
Knight is the former truck
driver who was linked to the
evidence and who entered a plea
of "no contest" last month to a
charge of second degree murder
for Espinoza's death.
Members of her family were
unable to attend the hearing
due, in part, to the severe illness
of Espinoza's mother, Assistant
State Attorney Dave Phelps
However, he asked that
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE) Special
Agent Annie White be allowed
to read letters submitted by the
"When you took her life, you
took part of mine." Espinoza's
mother, Mary Bolen, wrote.
Convicted Killer Kennetn Lee Knlgnt, lert, stands
before the court with Public Defender Fred Castleman.
Knight was sentenced to 23 years in prison Tuesday for
the 1988 death of an Indiana woman whose body was
"Sandy had a three-year-
old daughter that will never
see her mom. Now she has a
granddaughter. What makes
you think you can take a life and
get away with it? God will take
care of you."
Espinoza's sister, Pamela, had
this to say to her killer: "You
took a lot away from us. We are
a very close family. We miss her
everyday. I have sat and cried
many times wishing I could see
her. The way I feel, 23 years is
not good enough for you. Your
day will come. God will take
care of you for what you have
done to my sister Sandra. How
would you have felt if it was
your sister or one of your own
kids? You are hated by a lot of
people. I wish someone would
take you out and do you the
sameway you did Sandra. I hate
you with all my heart."
Her brother. Granville Bolen,
was uncompromising in his
statement: "I was at the house
24 years ago when the police
showed up. I tried to catch Mom
as she was falling to the floor
and the feeling of emptiness
was there. It never went away.
*We lost a lot. My dad is a big
man. He is in heaven waiting for
you. I hope you go to hell. If I
go there, I will find you. If you
get out, call me."
Sister Aileen Bolen offered
Knight salvation--but not
forgiveness:, "My life changed.
I only ask God to forgive you.
And think about the life you

A clean-shaven Kenneth
Lee Knight (above) looked
much different from his
in court nearly four weeks
ago (left). Members of
Knight's family, including
mother, were in the
audience Tuesday morning
to witness his sentencing
for the 1988 death of a
22-year-old woman. This
is the second murder
conviction for Knight,
who previously pled "no
contest" in the 1996
death of a Tennessee
woman. He received a 20-
year sentence in that case,
but was released from an
Arkansas prison less than
seven years later.
For new production line
Southerland toasts Chemring's expansion
U.S. Representative Steve Southerland and Chemring President Keith Funkhouser
share in the honor of cutting the ribbon on Chemring's new facility set to produce
the Anti-Personnel Obstacle Breaching System (APOBS). The company was awarded
a $150 million contract with the U.S. Army and Marine Corps last year to build the
U.S. Representative Steve
Southerland toured Chemring
Ordnance's plant here Friday
afternoon to see new facilities
under construction and cut
a ceremonial ribbon for the
company's production line
which will soon be producing
the Anti-Personnel Obstacle
Breaching System (APOBS).
Chemring was awarded a
$150 million contract with the
U.S. Army and Marine Corps
last year to build the APOBS,
which is a self-contained,
one-shot, expendable linear
demolition charge which can be
transported and deployed by a
two-person team, and is capable
of safely clearing a footpath
through anti-personnel mines
and multi-strand wire obstacles.
On Friday, Southerland
visited the building in which
the system will be produced,
even trying his hand at some
of the production equipment
"I just want to thank you for
your efforts here," Southerland
said following the ribbon
cutting, adding that both Taylor
County and the country are
"fortunate to have you."
He went on to say that his
time in office has been an
"amazing process" seeing U.S.
military operations from the
men and women in uniform to
companies like Chemring who
provide their equipment.
"It all comes together,"
Southerland said, adding that
he plans to return once the new
facility is operational.
"Thank you for your service
and support," said Keith
Funkhouser, president of
"We work for the war fighter."
The APOBS is capable of;
clearing a pathway through a
minefield or other obstacles
up to two meters wide and 45

in this tax relief package

Opportunity to revitalize our
economy by creating jobs as we
continue on the path to recovery.
"During the 60-day Legislative
Session, a total of 292 bills were

of the most discussed issues
at the State Capitol this year
when Governor Rick Scott's
cabinet secretary announced
plans to close seven prisons
and four work camps across the
state as part of his privatization

communities affected by
surprise and a coalition of
county officials, legislators and

Since the rest of you get to complain
regularly about newspaper stories, I
thought I'd try it too. No Wonder you
enjoy it so much; it really can be great
I became enraged when I read the
headline last week, "Born-agains
dominate GOP vote in AL, MS."
Let's get a few of my many prejudices
out of the way at the very beginning: I
bristle when people north of the Mason-
Dixon Line, or people in the national
media or comedians all over the
world describe everybody in Alabama
as toothless and stupid. Those two
states--one being my home state--may
have a number of citizens which fit
into the category of "toothless and
stupid," but they are also populated with
intelligent and thoughtful people.
Stereotypes are so unfair, and yet
the national culture embraces many
as "clever" and lambasts the others as
Who told them they could choose?
I'm guessing there must be a "please
check one" line on these exit polls which
says, "Do you consider yourself a born-
If answering such a poll, I would answer
"yes," too, and that would cause these
really smart television executives in
really tall buildings to immediately leap
toward their vision of "toothless, stupid
citizens." For I think they automatically
lump all Christians there.
I would answer "yes" because the
Bible--which is the defining word for
this sect of believers (however radical
they may seem)--clearly states that if
you wish to be a Christian, you must be
"born again." We Christians read that
statement--no, we study it to understand
its symbolism--and then move on "to be
God's people." To those of you who
don't know, that's not a bad thing. That
compels us to be kind and loving to all
who hate us which is apparently a pretty
large group of people. Surely America
could use more people with that dogma
of compassion and kindness. We don't
want to blow up this country; we want
to elevate it.
But the "born again" words have
become a label that is now completely
distorted and misrepresented. It remains
surprising to me that, as an enlightened
nation, we go to great lengths to resist
words like "retarded" (for fear of being
unkind), or to protest racial/gender slurs
because they are demeaning and hateful.
But Christians? Church people? The
ones who founded America and made
sure "one nation under God" was
emblazoned on creeds, pledges and
e Christians and
Well, they are fair game. If you
have anti-semitic, tendencies; 'you're
considered vile. If you have anti-
Christian tendencies, you could have
your own sitcom, use the "f" word
around three-year-olds and smear it all
over the big screen. People will applaud;
people will laugh.
While it's certainly not inaccurate
to call Christians "born again," the
designation does seem to immediately
call to mind uneducated people who
intermarry to breed even more stupid
progeny while believing in something
so outlandish as a higher being who
created this world and sustains it still.
This same article noted that six in 10 of
the born-again Mississippians did not
have college degrees. Let us note, here
and now, that this above the national
average. According to recent Census
figures, only 30 percent of the citizens
of the United States (over the age of 25)
have a Bachelor's degree.
I remain amazed that we Americans, in
one nation under God, travel the world
over to teach people to read, to provide
dentistry, to demonstrate farming
techniques, to profess love and concern
for others. We actually do that well.
Yet we come home and look down
upon our own fellow citizens, offering
them not a "hand up," but utter
disdain. Meanwhile, in order to get votes
--and only to get votes--candidates argue
over who's the "most Southern"--that is,
who likes grits or can correctly use the
culinary language swirling around grits.
Kiss my grits. "
I'll vote for the candidate who gets
this right: Christians are not all stupid,
uneducated fools. They are--for the
most part--the worker ants in this nation
who make the factories run and the
small businesses successful. They work
hard in order to pay their bills, and the
bills of many others too. They don't.
expect charity, but instead, they give
it. They raise their children on the Ten
Commandments, believe life is sacred
and that the state from which you hail is
not nearly as important as the character
Stepping down from my soapbox,
allow me to say that the previous diatribe
should be plenty of fodder for the next
competition in the arena between the
Christians and the lions. It always
seems like those ferocious lions will win,
but 2000 years later, the "born against"
remain in the headlines, no matter how
stupid and toothless they are depicted

"I have never thought this

have got to meet my father one

two beautiful children that will

Addressing Knight, she said,
"Even though you committed
this crime many, many years
ago, to the family of the woman
you murdered it is still just as
fresh to them."
She then pronounced
sentence, adjudicating Knight
guilty of second degree murder.
"Pursuant to the plea
agreement in this case, you
are sentenced to the Florida
Department of Corrections for
a period of 23 years," she said.
Knight, who was arrested
March 5, 2009, received credit
for the 1,112 days he has spent

The menu for our little
cookbook assembling .party
included lasagna, spinach and
strawberry salad, watergate-
salad, pimento chicken rice,
- and a wonderful coconut pound
cake with fresh strawberries
arid whipped cream! It sounds
really complicated, but I didn't
have a lot of time and it turned
out to be a delicious feast.
SHere's the secret to a great meal
if you are pressed for time:
The Granddaughter's Easy
Lasagna Meal for 8.
1 family-sized box of
Stouffer's lasagna, cooked
according to directions
1 bag of fresh spinach; slice a
container of washed
strawberries; add some walnuts
and crumbled cheese of your
choice and mix all together;
pour a bottle of raspberry
vinegarette into a nice' cruet
(salad dressing bottle) and set it
all up buffet or family style.
Important: When everyone
asks what they can bring, allow
each person to bring a dish (this
is how we had the wonderful
i.Watergate Salad--one of my
favorites; the rice side dish by
Great Aunt Virginia; and that
pound cake and strawberries of
Great Aunt Lydia's).
Finally, slice a round of
sourdough bread (or: whatever;
you have), rub with olive oil or
margarine, sprinkle with
parmesan cheese, garlic and
Italian seasonings: bake until
slightly browned then put it in a
basket wrapped in a.napkin or
with paper towels, ard pass it
around the table.

Doris Galinda-Lepoma of Perry was recognized as the "Top Newcomer" ballroom
dancer at the Champions' Gala Event held early this year in Sarasota at the Hyatt
Regency By The Bay.
Doris Galinda-Lepoma of
Perry was among a group of
ballroom dancers from this
area who competed at the
Champions' Gala Event in
Sarasota at the Hyatt Regency
By The Bay.
Joining her for the two-day
event Jan. 14-15 were Mary
Roberts and Carol Thomas of
Tallahassee and their Impact
dance sport instructor, Robert
"I have been doing ballroom
dancing all my life but I've

She explained that the first
day was filled with workshops
and seminars given by three
couples: Professional World

Pilipenchuk and -Natalia
Skorikova, Peter and Alexandra
Perzhu, Thorias and Izabella
After the seminar,
contestants were treated to a
gourmet dinner with wine and
general dancing, followed by
professional and amateur solos
and showcases. "There were
amazing performances by the
professional world champions
and the current national
champions, Peter and Alexandra
Perzhu," she said.
Competition began the
second day at 8:30 a.m. and
continued until 5 p.m. The
morning event featured Pro-Am

afternoon sessions showcased
rhythm and Latin divisions (cha

swing, mambo, hustle) with
"During a gourmet dinner
with wine, awards were
presented and general dancing
was enjoyed. There were
from the professional world
champions--they were better
than 'Dancing with the Stars,' I
thought," she said.
Reminding that "heat"
is the competition term for
dances, Galinda-Lepoma said
her group did a total of 105
dances. Roberts danced 46
heats, Galinda-Lepoma danced
40 heats, and Thomas danced
19 heats. "We each received
a beautiful trophy and I was
awarded as the Top Newcomer
ballroom dancer," Galinda-
Lepoma said. "Out of 40 heats
that I danced, I took 26 first
places and 14 second places."

problem-solving that is already
taking place because we are
working together. In this time
of tight agency budgets and
increased unemployment, I am
very hopeful about the future
impact of the network in our
The network is housed
on the campus of North
Florida Community College,
a founding member. Other
inaugural members were DMH,
Florida State University (FSU)
College of Medicine, Madison
County Memorial Hospital and
North Florida Medical Centers,
"The network establishes
an important partnership
in our regional workforce
development efforts, providing
human resources dedicated to
helping us to meet the needs
of our community for a stable,
locally based, and high quality
healthcare workforce," said Dr.
Gail Bellamy, director of the
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of
Florida Center for Rural Health
Research and Policy at FSU
College of Medicine.
In its effort to partner with
local healthcare providers
and community leaders to
gain insight on healthcare
workforce needs, the network's
membership has grown and will
continue to do so, according
to Philip Wilkerson, executive
"We currently have
representation from each of the
six counties on our governing
board and future partnerships
are expected as we focus our
efforts to address specific
health workforce needs in
each of the communities we
serve as well as the region,"
Both Wilkerson and Huth
stressed the importance of
regional collaboration as did
the network's chair, Sheryl
Rehberg, executive director of
the North Florida Workforce
"Most importantly, the
Rural Healthcare Workforce
is a regional concept for
collaboration on issues facing
our need for workers at all
levels of the healthcare system,"
"I look forward to the next
year of activity and working
with the network board to
accomplish great things.
Working together provides our
best opportunity to develop
the talent and abilities of our
local people and to recruit the
