Q Cu ,


Students, teachers


prepare for FCAT
P P.


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Local schools are getting
to the final stages of prepara-
tion before the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Tests is administered.
This year's r6und of FCAT
testing will begin Feb. 8 9
when fourth-graders take
their FCAT writing tests.
Eighth- and 10th-graders will
take the writing portions of
the tests Feb. 8.
However, this year, state
officials have added a section
to the writing test.
'The new component will
be on the mechanics of writ-
ing," said Kitty McElhaney,
the Columbia School District
director of secondary educa-
tion. "It's more the mechan-
ics and structure of sen-
tences, and it's a multiple
choice test. That will be
administered in two 45-
minute sections."
The reading, math and sci-
ence portions of the tests will
be administered Feb. 28-
March 11.
This year students in the
11th grade will take the sci-
ence portion of the test.
"In the past, it was admin-
istered at grades 5, 8, and 10,
but this year moved it to
grade 11, and that was based
on information from science
educators, test administra-
tors and officials throughout
the state," McElhaney said.

"We were notified of the
change back in September."
McElhaney said the sci-
ence test for 11th-graders
checks their overall knowl-
edge of science..
"It's not a graduation
requirement, and it's not part
of the school grade at this
point in time." she said. "It
will be part of the school
grade., in the future."
The FCAT is the state
mandated test for all stu-
dents in third grade to 10th
grade.
Student FCAT scores
determine whether third-
graders are retained,
whether 10th-graders are eli-
gible for graduation and are
also used to determine a
school's grade.
The information is used to
determine whether a school
has made adequate yearly
progress based on federal
standards.
Several school districts
across the state have had to
adjust FCAT testing dates
because of hurricanes, but
McElhaney said the hurri-
canes didn't affect this year's
FCAT preparation for stu-
dents and teachers locally.
"We've maintained the
schedule that was originally
set out at the beginning of
the year," she said. "We felt it
was in the best interest of the

An extra helping of love

Carolyn Pollard, a cafeteria employee at Columbia High School, stands at the altar
inside the CHS cafeteria Tuesday with her fiance Glen Jones. Family, friends,
students and school administrators watched the couple exchange vows.

Couple weds at CHS cafeteria


By TONY BRITT

A red roll of paper
formed an aisle leading to
a mural of the school mas-
cot. coming 'out the wall,
but that was the backdrop
for white lattice adorned
with flowers and other
greenery.
Brass candle holders sat
on white, linen-clothed
table settings. The seats
were occupied by cafeteria
workers and several
school administrators. In
the background sat a
group of curious students.
The Columbia High'
School cafeteria doubled
as a wedding chapel
Tuesday as a school
employee decided to tie
the knot with her fiance.
It was an ideal setting for
Carolyn Pollard, a cafeteria
worker, to marry her
fiance, Glen Jones. The
school cafeteria manager
read the wedding vows.
"I think it is amazing the


filt was really a
cool wedding and a
first for Columbia
High.
Pat Pell
Columbia High School
food service manager

kids got involved with
this," said Pat Pell, the
Columbia High School
food service manager, who
served as the public notary
for the ceremony. 'They've
known Ms. Carolyn a long
time and when they found
out she was getting mar-
ried, they wanted to make
it a .special day for her. It
was really a cool wedding
and a first for Columbia
High. I've never heard of
them having a wedding in
the cafeteria before."
The bride said she want-
ed to have a wedding
where all of her friends
and co-workers could


attend. With Pell being a
notary public, she and the
other workers and stu-
dents ran with the idea.
"We didn't want any-
thing big and they just
took it upon themselves to
do all this for me and that
makes me real happy,"
Pollard said. "I don't know
what to say ... I'm just
touched right now."
. The groom was expect-
ing a small, quaint ceremo-
ny, but was surprised when
he entered the cafeteria.
"It was surprising,"
Jones said. "Even she did-
n't know what was going
on until she got here."
Both the, bride and
groom graduated from
Columbia High School in
1983.
Mamie Tomlin,
Carolyn's sister, also
works for the school dis-
trict and was able to sit in
on her sister's wedding.

Charter to

be topic of

discussion

Thursday

By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
The charter which governs
Columbia County will be one.
of the main topics of discus-
sion at the Board of
Commissioners meeting.
Thursday night.
David Rountree, whoc
served on the original charter
cuinmission. said county offi-
cials. need to work on three
areas of the charter in order
to adhere-to the original text.
The charter, which took
effect two years ago, was put
together by a 15-member com-
mittee. It is like a "mini-consti-
tution" for the county. The
charter spells out the powers,
duties and structures of coun-
ty government.
Rountree said the charter
required commissioners to
adopt an administrative code,
which dictates duties and
operation procedures of all
county officials.
However, the Board of
Commissioners have yet to
adopt this administrative
code.
"Jan. 1 is two years the
county has had its charter,
and they have yet to adopt this
code," Rountree said. "The
county manager is. responsi-
ble for development of the
code, but the board has to
adopt it. We've not had a plan
presented in those two years."
In addition, Rountree said
the charter calls for all the
county ordinances to be codi-
fied, and that hasn't been
done.
Finally, the charter also
states by July 1, 2005, com-
missioners must appoint a-
charter review commission.
'"This is the first review of
the charter," Rountree said.
'"The two previous items need*
to be completed before we
have the first review of the
charter. We had two full years
to get this done."
Rountree said he didn't
compare or research

Gootee settles in new digs as sheriff


By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.comrn
Columbia County resi-
dents who like their sheriff
wearing a cowboy hat and
boots may be disappointed
to learn Bill Gootee has no
plans to don that attire pop-
ular with many sheriffs of
the South.
But in every other way,
the new sheriff expects the
people of Columbia County
will be pleased with the
changes at the sheriff's
office under his administra-
tion.
"I think so, I really do,"
Gootee said. "I think (for-
mer sheriff) Frank Owens
had a foundation in place,
and we are going to build
on that foundation."
Gootee said he plans to
look at every function of
the office individually and


Local & State .3A
Business ....... 5A


evaluate "how we can do
things better," such as
being more visible in the
community, and improving
response times.
After being sworn in
Monday night, Tuesday
was Gootee's first official
day on the job. At 7:45 a.m.,
he was picked up and driv-
en to work in a patrol car by
Sgt. Tim Ball.
Awaiting Gootee at the
office was a day full of
meetings to reorganize and
shape the beginnings of his
next four years as the coun-
ty's top law enforcement
officer.
By lunch, he had already
met with all of the office's
division commanders to go
over what the agency needs
to focus on.

I-10 lanes to close



for next three weeks


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

Nearly three miles of east-
bound lanes on Interstate 10
will be closed for the next
three weeks as part of a
Florida Department of
Transportation project.
Road crews will be remov-
ing a 2.5 mile-long dirt berm,
located 1.5 miles east of U.S.
441. The berm was built
alongside the road to keep
hurricane floodwaters off the
interstate.
'The berm was installed in
September between hurri-
canes Frances and Ivan," said
Gina Busscher, DOT spokes-
woman for this region.
"We decided to remove the
berm because of the close
proximity to the travel lanes.
It's not serving a purpose


now because there is no
water to hold back."
In September, the floodwa-
ters were estimated to be 2-
2.5 feet deep in some areas
where the waters covered the
interstate along a 2.5 mile
stretch. State officials man-
dated the berm be installed.
"It was just like a lake out
there," Busscher said. 'The
water was across all four
lanes."
According to the DOT, the
70-mph speed limit will be
reduced to 55 mph in the
work zone, and speeding
fines will be doubled when
workers are present.
Work on the project is
scheduled for seven days a
week, and the hours of opera-
tion are listed from 7 a.m. -
5:30 p.m.
Busscher said the chances


of the project being complet-
ed before the deadline appear
to be good, depending on
weather and resources.
"They said they need 21
days to remove it, but they
have assured us they will
have it removed a week prior
to the Super Bowl," she said.
Busscher said officials
have no idea if they'll ever
need 'a berm at that site
again.
"There is no telling
because we never anticipated
having four hurricanes hit-
ting Florida in one year," she
said.
"We had floodwaters
where we never had floodwa-
ters before. We're optimistic
we won't need it again, but
we're also looking at other
alternatives to try to control
the flooding in the future."


Avoid getting burned by hot water


By Don Wilson
Lake City Fire Department

Each year, approximately
3,800 injuries and 34 deaths
occur in
'; .othe home
Idue to

ex ces-
sively hot
tap water.
mThe
Se majority
of these
Don Wilson accidents
involve
the elderly and children
under the age of five. The
U.S. Consumer Product
Safety Commission urges all
users to lower their water
heaters to 120 degrees
Fahrenheit. In addition to pre-
venting accidents, this
decrease in temperature will
conserve energy and save
money.
Most adults will suffer
third-degree burns if exposed
to 150 degree water for two
seconds.
Burns will also occur with a
six-second exposure to 140
degree water or with a 30 sec-
ond exposure to 130 degree
water. Even if the temperature
is 120 degrees, a five minute
exposure could result in third-
degree burns.
Various procedures for low-
ering water temperatures in
the home exist, depending on
the method of heating. Here
are some suggestions:
Electric Water Heaters
Call your local electric com-
pany to adjust the thermostat.
Some companies offer this
service at no charge.


To make the adjustment
yourself, start by shutting off
the current to the water
heater, then turn off the cir-
cuit breaker to the heater or
remove the fuse that serves
the heater.
Most electric water heaters
have two thermostats, both of
which must be set to a com-
mon temperature for proper
operation.
To reach these thermo-
stats, you must remove the
upper and lower access pan-
els.
Adjust the thermostat fol-
lowing the instructions pro-
vided with the appliance.
Hold a candy or meat ther-
mometer under the faucet to
check water temperature.
Hot water should not be used
for at least two hours prior to
setting.
Gas Water Heaters
Because th-KI 'n.im-at diff, t.
call your local gas company
for instructions.
Where precise tempera-
tures are not given, hold a
candy or meat thermometer
under the faucet first thing in
the morning or at .least two
hours after water use to get an
accurate reading.
If the reading is too high,
adjust the thermostat on the
heater according to the manu-
facturer's instructions, and
then check again with a ther-
mometer.
Safety Tips
Play it safe around hot
water. Follow these simple
hot water tips to help prevent
the chance of hot water burn
injuries.
Set your water heater at
a safe setting. The manufac-


turers, recommended setting
on water heaters is1206 E
This temperature provides
the maximum availability of
hot water to the consumer
and reduces the potential for
bacteria growth.
Protect young children!
Worried about the potential of
your children to be scalded by,
hot water? Install anti scald
devices in showerheads,
faucets and bathtub spouts to
shut off the water flow if the
temperature exceeds 49
degrees Celsius (120
degrees).
These devices are readily
available through local hard-
ware stores or from licensed
plumbers. Have a central mix-
ing valve installed at the water
heater by a licensed plumber.
Test the water tempera-
ture before you step into a
bath or shower.
Supervise infants and
small children while they are
near household 'faucets. 'In
"'just a few seconds they could
accidentally turn on a hot
water tap and suffer severe
burns.
Watch for sudden
increases in water tempera-
ture when another cold water
tap in your household is
turned on while you shower
or bathe.
Never take hot water
temperature for granted,
always hand-test before using,
especially when bathing chil-
dren and infants.
Leaving a child unsuper-
vised in the bathroom, even if
only for a second, could cause
serious injuries. The best
defense against accidents and
scalding to infants and young
children is your presence at
all times.

Be careful,


preserve life,


and safety

n recent days, we have seen tragic
accidents take away two promising
lives through horrible ATV wrecks.
First, a local man in his 30s was,
killed in a four-wheeler accident
when he lost control along a roadway,
clipped a culvert and hit a tree. Josh King,
31, of Live Oak, was a corrections officer, a
citizen contributing to the good of humani-
ty in the local area.
.And now he's gone.
Then, on New Year's Eve, a 9-year-old
boy, Cody James Creech of Wellborn,
crossed a highway on an ATV in front of a
semi-truck and was struck and killed. He
was spending time with his grandfather,
enjoying a warm winter day in Northl
Florida.
Suddenly, he's gone, too.
ATV's are recreational vehicles, but they'
are not toys. They are motorized vehicles -'
:hat can be enjoyed in the proper setting,
but they also can be deadly. Think about
this when you ride one.
In both of these instances, it was a day
of fun and relaxation before these acci-
dents occurred. Now, families are forever
changed because of the deaths of these
two individuals.
These are terrible tragedies.
Those who ride should remember that
ATVs are off-road vehicles. When they get
near roads, bad things happen. When they
become out of control in the woods, they
are dangerous.
When children ride these vehicles,
make sure the ATV is the proper size for
the child. Supervise the child. Teach them.
Help them learn the joy of motorsports
and help them learn it safely. Preparation
is the key.
No one points, the finger of blame in
these instances. The pain of such tragic,
events affects our entire community. From
school children to law enforcement to all
residents we can connect with the pain at
some level.
Now, all we can do is remember and
learn from it.


Today is Wednesday, Jan. 5, the fifth day
of 2005, There are 360 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:
On Jan. 5, 1925, Nellie T. Ross succeed-
ed her late husband as governor of
Wyoming, becoming the first female gov-
ernor in U.S. history.

On this date:
In 1589, Catherine de Medici of France
died at age 69.
In 1781, a British naval expedition led
by Benedict Arnold burned Richmond,
Va. ,
In 1895, French Captain Alfred Dreyfus,
convicted of treason, was publicly stripped
of his rank. (He was, ultimately vindicat-
ed.)
In 1896, an Austrian newspaper
("Wiener Presse") reported the discovery
by German physicist Wilhelm Roentgen of
a type of radiation that came to be known
as "X-rays."
In 1933, the 30th president of the United
States, Calvin Coolidge, died in
Northampton, Mass., at age 60.
In 1949, in his State of the Union
address, President Truman labeled his
administration the "Fair Deal."

Where was God on Dec. 26? .


Tsunami Japanese word for tidal
wave, caused by a seismic distur-
bance of the ocean. Cataclysmic
devastation. Killer wave. There is
probably no part of the civilized
world that has not been somehow affected by
the monster tsunami that swept through south-
east Asia on December 26. Transfixed by the
images of horror on our television screens, we
watched helplessly as on-site news reporters,

visibly shaken by the sights, sounds, and
smells of death and devastation surrounding
them, tried to give us helpful information. With
the death toll having passed 150,000 already,
the catastrophic effects. of the tsunami are
almost beyond comprehension.
Having just withstood the forces of four dev-
astating hurricanes within a six-week period,
Floridians view this newest tragedy across-the
world with emotional empathy. Our own:suf-'
fering is diminished as we- see,,entire towns
obliterated from existence. Whole families
have been washed out to sea. Parents have lost
children; other children have been orphaned
by the effects of the tsunami. And now heavy
and prolonged rains are exacerbating a situa-
tion that was all but unbearable already.
The human mind gropes with the magnitude
of this horror; we search for some glimmer of
hope and goodness in the situation.The sur-
vivor stories offer that glimmer, and we cele-
brate the joys of those fortunate ones such as
the family of the 7-year old boy in India whose
dog pulled him to safety and the 10-year old
British school girl, who had just learned about
tsunamis in school two weeks prior to the
event. Vacationing in Thailand with her family,
she recognized the potential danger on the
beach when the water washed away from the
shore, and warned her.parents that this could
be the predecessor to the huge tidal wave. That
family, along with about 100 other people, evac-
uated the beach and found safety on high
ground before the monstrous wave rushed
ashore with its destructive force.
As the tragedy, continues to unfold before
our eyes, so does the worldwide desire to help.
God bless the U.S. military. Always prepared
for a quick response to just about anything,
one news analyst called them the ','world's fire
department." Navy planes have been dropping.
water and supplies to the most needy areas for
days now. A contingent of Marines and water
purifying equipment are in Sumatra. Florida's,
Gov. Jeb Bush, with his recently established
expertise in coping with four hurricanes in
rapid succession, has been delegated by the.
president to personally tour the devastated
areas and assess the situation.
Struggling to understand the enormity of


CAROLYN
OLDER


this global tragedy, we realize the only real way
to overcome our sense of helplessness is to
give. People and nations separated by ideolog-
ical differences forge a common bond of caring
as they unite in contributing 'to the massive
humanitarian effort. Almost every developed
country has sent relief funds in the millions,
and pledged much more Many individuals,
whose training, experience, and circumstances
qualify them, will volunteer to go help on site,
giving of themselves in the most direct way.
Others are donating to favorite charities. The
Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, World
Vision, and Save the Children USA are just a
handful of the long list of organizations that are,
working to provide relief to the suffering sur-
vivors.
As many of us pray daily for remediation of
the disastrous situation, we still grapple with
the question of why such a thing happens. A
Jewish acquaintance told me about a prayer
called "Kaddish" which is recited by mourners
after the death of a loved one. The Kaddish
simply acknowledges that whatever happens to
us, we must always revere God as our Divine
Creator, whose name is forever exalted,
blessed and honored. He is the author of all
that is good, and we must never doubt Him.
Repeating it over and over is meant to strength-
en and reinforce one's faith in His goodness
and mercy, regardless of how we are affected
by events in our lives.,
Yes, our faith may waiver, and we may have
niggling doubts about God's goodness during
times like these. But whatever His reasons for
allowing such tragic events, God's promises to
us are real.
After warning us of events preceding the
end times, Jesus said "Heaven and earth shall
pass away, but my words shall not pass away."
(Matt. 24:35)
That promise is our only real hope in a world
sometimes so vulnerable to natural and urinat-.
ural disasters.

Sunday paper
stinks terribly
Your Sunday, Jan. 2, paper
was the most pathetic newspa-
per I have ever looked at on a
Sunday. No current local
news. A four-page sports sec-
tion on the day after a huge
day in college sports. An arti-
cle praising the pervert, Bill
O'Reilly, for saying the same
thing many other better peo-


ple are saying.
Nothing about the war in
Iraq and its upcoming elec-
tion.
But, best of all (or worst),
on the Op/Ed page is an arti-
cle about Crock-Pot cooking.
What the hell do you call
that?
I used to like your paper. I
subscribed for three years. I
bought it at the stand for the
past few years. The last time I
sent in an editorial via email


someone from the Reporter
called me 20 minutes later to
sell me a subscription.
I said no and my letter was-
n't printed. I'm told by friends
you now edit letters to the edi-
tor. I see where you are going
with all of this. Now I know
what it must be like to live in
Russia.

LAKE CITY REPORTER, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 5, 2005


BUSINESS




Incentive program still untapped


By JUSTIN LANG
jflang@lakecityreporter.com

Existing local businesses
are eligible for county tax
incentives similar to those
used to attract new industry,
but so far none have taken
advantage of the program.
The County Commission
passed the Columbia County
Local Economic Development
Incentive Program in
November.
The program primarily
grants tax credits for the
county's and Industrial
Development Authority's por-
tion of ad valorem taxes for
locally-owned businesses that
create more job opportuni-
ties.
The program was largely
designed by Jim Poole, execu-
tive director of the Lake City-
Columbia County Chamber of
Commerce, and the IDA
Poole said he is currently
working with one local busi-
ness interested in the incen-
tives, which he could not
name because nothing is offi-
cial.
"I hope to get close soon,"
he said.
To be eligible, a business
must exist locally for at least
five years, invest at least
$500,000 in capital improve-
ments and create at least 10
new jobs to receive a $2,000
tax credit per job created.
Creating more than 10 jobs


will lead to further tax credits.
The jobs must also pay at
least 125 percent of the aver-
age local wage (about
$20,000) and have benefits
packages, including medical
insurance and retirement or
comparable benefits.
While he has not received
an official application for the
program from an interested
business, Poole said, once he
does it must go before the
IDA Board. The board will
decide whether to recom-
mend the incentives to the
commission for final approval.
Poole said the program is
"aimed at creating jobs" by
offering financial motivation
to local companies, not just
new ones considering moving
to the area.
"We'd like to let the exist-
ing businesses know we are
here to work with. them too,"
he said.
"Everyone gets excited
about something new, but 85
percent of what happens in
the community comes from
your local existing business."
Poole said that the pro-
gram's current guidelines of
requiring both a $500,000
investment and creating 10
new jobs could be modified
depending on interest in the
program.
In choosing those require-
ments, he found virtually no
existing plans in the state as a
guideline and wanting a

selected
those
n u m -
b e r s
based
on ini-


tial research.
"I think the most important
thing is we've got something
passed," Poole said.
"As I mentioned to the com-
mission we will probably be
amending and fine-tuning it to
make it more workable, but
we wanted to get something
that's complete and avail-
able."
"If it's not a good plan, I
think the commission is will-
ing to make changes and I
know the IDA is," he added.
In addition to offering tax
credits, Poole said eligible
businesses that also generate
sales tax revenue could
receive a percentage of the
county's portion for a limited
number of years. Currently,
he said, the program outlines
that a business would receive
back a portion of the sales tax
revenue it generates for the
county for 10 years, going
from 50 percent in the first
year down to 5 percent in the
last. While the program's ad


valorem tax credits is current-
ly just for the county and IDA,
Poole said he plans to also ask
the city to give tax credits and
possibly of portion of its sales
tax revenues for eligible busi-
nesses.
Councilman George Ward
said he hopes the City
Council can discuss partici-
pating in the program during
a workshop scheduled for
Jan. 12.
"I think in the long run it
encourages more job growth
within the city," Ward said.
Because of the program's
current capital investment
and job creation require-
ments, Ward said demand
from businesses within city
limits would likely be low and
participating "is probably not
going to adversely affect the
income stream the city
depends upon."
After working on the pro-
gram for about two years,
Poole said the county and the
IDA wanted a way to help
local business.
"We just wanted to try and
have the ability to make more
opportunities," he said. "I
tried to find a plan around the
state to model it after and
could not find one, so we
came up with one, and now
I've gotten calls from people
wanting a copy of ours.
'That shows that other
communities are interested
too."

GOOTEE
Continued from page 1A

"Basically looking at the
overall operation of the
agency," Gootee said.
Early on his agenda is to
ensure the sheriff's office gets
most of its functions under one
roof. In December, the County
Commission approved the pur-
chase of a former CNB
National Bank operation cen-
ter on U.S. 90 East from its
current owner (the city) for
about $1 million.
Gootee said he expects the
deal will close within the next
two months and hopes to have
many of his 180 employees in
the building by early March.
Gootee also made several
staff revisions on his first day
of work.
At the Columbia County
Detention Center, he said he
put Capt. Doug Johns in
charge of the facility and
moved Capt. Van Smithey to
other duties within the office.
Gootee said Smithey did an
"excellent job" at the jail, but
decided it was "time for
change and new ideas."
Johns has a background in
corrections and probation and
parole that will be advanta-
geous, he said.
Gootee also appointed Maj.
Mark Hunter as undersheriff,
creating a new position. He
said Hunter will oversee the
day-to-day operation of the
sheriff's office's law enforce-
ment functions.
By doing so, Gootee said it
would free him to be. more
available to interact with the
community.
Capt. Jim Wells, formerly
the public information officer,
was. appointed to oversee
investigations, which Gootee
is now referring to as the
Detective Division. Laurie
Windham, formerly the assis-
tant executive director of the


Lake City-Columbia County
Chamber of Commerce, will
become Gootee's assistant and
handle public affairs.
Capt. Wallace Kitchings,
who did oversee both investi-
gations and patrol, will now
focus solely on patrol, Gootee
said.
"We are not making any real
drastic changes," he said. "We
want to take time, evaluate and
make sure we are putting the
right people in the right
places."
In addition to the new
administrative complex,
Gootee also has a few other
facility changes in mind for
the sheriff's office.
At the County Commission
meeting on Thursday, Gootee
said he will ask commission-
ers to consider consolidation
of the county's 911 dispatch to
have fire, EMS and the sher-
iff's office under one roof.
He said he will also ask
commissioners to consider
purchasing 11 acres adjacent
to the new administrative
complex for about $85,000.
Gootee said the land could be
used for future development,
possibly even being used for a
new jail.
Gootee said he also plans to
move his own office from a
former storefront on North
Marion Avenue to the court-
house within the next few
months, where the sheriff's
office civil division is already
housed. He said this would
make him more accessible
and visible to the community.
As he discussed in his elec-
tion platform, Gootee said he
also plans to have the sher-
iff's office substation in Fort
White manned more regular-
ly and allow access to records
and other information for res-
idents in that area.
Eventually, he said, he may
consider splitting the county
into north and south districts
to improve the office's overall
function.


Gootee said he wants to get
more deputies "on the road"
and meet the needs of the
community faster, which may
include hiring, new law
enforcement officers during
the next budget year.
, "We are looking at each
thing at one time and seeing
how we can do it better," he
said.
Because of the Career


Service Act, proposed by
Owens and passed by a special
act of the state Legislature in
2003, as an incoming sheriff,
Gootee cannot fire or reduce
the pay of any sheriff's office
employee (not still under their
one year probation) for six
months.
Though the act applies only
to the local sheriff's office,
Gootee or any other newly

elected sheriff cannot change
the policy, only the legislature
can modify or end it.
However, an amendment
could be made to the county
charter to alter or do away
with the Career Service Act by
a vote of the people.
Gootee said he doesn't have
intentions of many more
changes than he has already
and believes he has "good peo-


ple" working in the office.
"I'm not going to be perfect,
nobody is, and I am going to
make mistakes," he said. "I ask
the people to be patient with
me; they will see changes."
But with those changes he
said he intends to create a
sheriff's office that best serves
the people while being "wise
stewards of the taxpayers dol-
lars as well."

CHS beats Union County


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter. corn
LAKE BUTLER Colum-
bia High had four players in
double figures in a 64-54 win
over a Union County High
team .that was only seven
strong, but scrappy.
Columbia rode seven points
from Kenneth Williams late in
the first quarter for an 18-11
lead at the end of the period.
Williams came in with a wave
of late subs and coach Trey


Hosford kept him on the floor
to start the second quarter. He
hit his first six shots and fin-
ished with 17 points.
Union County would not go
away and, after a basket off
the offensive board by Colum-
bia's Jamal Brown, Rodencia
Austin converted a three-
point play to tie the game at
26-all with 2:32 left before half-
time. Kendric Williams sco-
red four points down the
stretch and Alvin Bradley
added a basket for a 32-28


CHS lead at intermission.
Justin Rayford, who also
scored 17 points, and Bradley,
who tallied 12, gave Columbia
some breathing room, scoring
seven and six points, respec-
tively, during the third quar-
ter. Kendric Williams added
four points he scored four
in each quarter and CHS
led 51-37 at the break.
Union County made three
3-pointers in the fourth quar-

Indians take Keystone


By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter.comrn

FORT WHITE With
Fort White High struggling
to maintain its fourth quar-
ter lead, Indians coach Char-
les Moore made a key
adjustment.
"An old coaching thing
came to me," Moore said.
"Their legs are tiring. I said
They're not going to have
the spring in the outside
shot.' That's why we went
back to the zone, and it


worked for us because we
put pressure on the ball and
they started missing their
outside shots."
At the time Fort White was
leading by just two points,
52-50. The Indians went on a
13-0 run to close out the
game and earn their second
straight and first district
- win this season, 65-50
over Keystone Heights High
on Tuesday night.

Trojans leave no doubt


USC crushes

Oklahoma in the

Orange Bowl

EAt press time, USC led
Oklahoma 55-10 late in the
fourth quarter.
From staff reports

There is no debate. No. 1
Southern California made its
case for claiming the national
championship on Tuesday
night loud and clear, storming
out to a 55-10 lead over the
Oklahoma Sooners in the
Orange Bowl.
Matt Leinart also proved
himself more than worthy of
his status as the Heisman
Trophy winner, completing
18-35 passes fpr 330 yards and
five TDs through the early
stages of the final period.
Ironically, it was Oklahoma
that started the game as if it
was making its claim on the
title, as 2003 Heisman-win-
ning quarterback Jason White
spearheaded the Sooners'
opening drive, which resulted
in a five-yard TD pass from
White to Travis Wilson for a 7-
0 lead.
But it was the last highlight
of the, evening for the
Sooners.
Leinart went to work
against one of the nation's top
defenses immediately, firing a
33-yard scoring pass to
Dominique Byrd to tie the
game.
The Trojans then took a
lead they never relinquished
on their next possession, as
LenDale White scored from


Southern Cal's Dominique Byrd (86) catches a touchdown pass as Oklahoma's Rufus
Alexander (42) attempts to defend during the first quarter of-the Orange Bowl at Pro Player


Stadium in Miami on Tuesday.

six yards out to make it 14-7.
. For the second straight
year,- White struggled in a
bowl game. The senior signal-
caller completed 21-33 passes,


a higher completion rate than
Leinart, but he threw three
interceptions.
USC opened the floodgates
in the second quarter,


outscoring Oklahoma 24-3 to
turn the game into a rout.
Leinart threw a 54-yard TD
pass to DeWayne Jarrett for a
21-7 lead. Then Leinart found


Steve Smith for a five-yard
score to push the advantage
to 28-7.
After the Soooners' Garrett
Hartley booted a 29-yard field
goal to narrow the margin to
28-10, Leinart found Smith
again for a 33-yard TD to give
the Trojans a 35-10 lead.
Ryan Killeen kicked a 44-
yard field goal to make it 38-10
at halftime.
In the third, Leinart and
Smith hooked up for their
third TD of the game on a
four-yard pass. Killeen added
a 42-yard kick to give USC a
48-10 lead.
White made it 55-10 on an
.eight-yard TD run.
It was White, not Heisman
finalist Reggie Bush, who
turned in the biggest per-
formance on the ground for
the Trojans, gaining 121 yards
on only 15 carries.
Both Jarrett and Smith went
over the 100-yard receivinig
mark, Jar'-t caught five balls
for 115 yards. and Smith added'
111 yards on seven catches.
Oklahoma super freshman
running back Adrian Peterson
was held in check with 23 car-
ries for just 75 yards, good for
a 3.3-yard average.
The Trojans extended their
winning streak to 22 consecu-
tive games in winning their
second straight national
championship.
Oklahoma committed five
turnovers on the night and
has now lost its last two
national championship ga-
mes, having fallen to LSU in
last year's Sugar Bowl.
The Sooners beat Florida
State 13-2 to win the 2000
championship.

Southern Oaks holes out of water


The holes at Southern
Oaks Golf Club that have
been in our lake are now out
of our lake. Holes. 3, 4, 5 and 6
have been overseeded with
rye and should be playable by
the third weekend this month.
A tremendous effort by
owner Ron Brooks, Superin-
tendent Doyle Worthington
and the entire maintenance
crew has made this recovery
possible. Cleanup started
months back with boats,
backhoes, loaders and trac-
tors used to push maiden
cane grass and mud off of the
tees and fairways. Still, only
two weeks ago there was
approximately three feet of
water on the fairways.
The Bermuda grass, espe-
cially on the greens, has faired
very well. To our astonish-
ment, the grass on the greens
had to be mowed three times
prior to overseeding.
Thank you to all of our
members and customers who


SOUTHERN OAKS

HAROLD HOOVER


have stayed with us through
this difficult time and many
thanks also to Columbia
County and FEMA for their
efforts and assistance.
With good weather, and a
little luck, Southern Oaks will
again be the best conditioned
18-hole golf course in North
Florida in a matter of weeks.
The team of Trey Jackson,
Terry Hunter, Mike Jarrell,
Bob Randall and Al Clements
took first-place honors in the
Saturday Blitz with a two best
ball of the team score of 130.
Hunter was very consistent
with a 2-under-par 70, while
Clements burned the back
side with five birdies.
Jordan Hale, Mike McCra-
nie, Buddy Slay, Steve Osbor-
ne and Mike Peters took sec-


ond place with a score of 138.
In the skins game, Hale
won one skin with an eagle on
No. 13, McCranie earned a
skin with a birdie on No. 12
and Clements got his skin
with a birdie on No. 18.
On Dec. 28, the Ladies Golf
Association played an individ-
ual Nassau tournament. Lin-
da Weaver had an excellent
day, tying with Dottie Rogers
for low net on the front nine,
then winning the back nine
and 18 holes overall. Weaver
shot a net 74 for the day and
Rogers was close behind with
a net 77.
The Women's Senior Golf
Tour Qualifier will return to
Southern Oaks on Jan. 18-21.
There is no charge for specta-
tors to watch some of the best
senior women in the world.
If you are interested in
being a scorer for the players
or would like to volunteer to
help with hospitality, call the
pro shop at 752-2266.

INDIANS
Continued from page 1B


Donald Lewis and Owen
McFadden led the Indians
with 15 points each, and both
were key contributors during
the Indians' stretch run.
Lewis' drive and layup gave
Fort White a 54-50 lead, and
moments later he hit a short
jumper to increase the lead to
six.
Then McFadden took over,
making a steal and hitting a
layup to make it 58-50.
McFadden then hit two free
throws with 38 seconds left to
seal the win.


The game started as if it
would end in a runaway for the
Indians, as Fort White raced
out to a 12-4 first quarter lead.
But Keystone fought back,
scoring 12 of the first 14 points
in the second quarter to knot
the game at 16-16. Keystone
was led by Caleb Whitfield,
who entered the game in the
second period and finished
with a team-high 16 points. A
Whitfield jumper gave Key-
stone its first lead at 21-20, and
the game would swing back
and forth during a riveting
final three minutes of the half.
McFadden hit a three-point-
er to give Fort White a 27-26
lead with a minute left, and a


Joey Pinello layup made it 29-
26 at halftime. Pinello finished
with 14 points.

Broccoli the crown jewel of nutrition


By SUSAN SLOAN
Special to the Reporter

If you want to stay healthy,
eat your vegetables.
How many times have we
heard this from our moth-
ers? But do you really get
your recommended "Five a
day"? Many adults still don't
like to eat their vegetables
and if recent studies are cor-
rect, this is a big mistake.
Not only are you short-
changing yourself, but your
children's eating habits are
generally learned at home,
so it's no surprise that many
children are also not getting
their 5 servings of fruits and
vegetables a day.
If you only add one new
vegetable to your diet, broc-
coli would be a great one to
try. Known as the "Crown
of Jewel Nutrition," it has
been studied extensively
for potential health bene-
fits. Harvard researchers
have found that a diet rich
in broccoli (among other
fruits and vegetables) can
reduce the occurrence of
the most common type of
stroke caused by the block-
age of blood vessels as well
as lowering the risk of
heart disease. Broccoli is a
good source of vitamin A,
potassium, folacin, iron and
fiber, and it has as much
calcium ounce per ounce as
milk.
As if that wasn't enough,
it also contains the impor-
tant phytochemicals: beta-
carotene, indoles and isoth-
iocyanates, which are
thought to protect against
certain types of cancer by
preventing carcinogens


Broccoli, which can be tasty by itself can also add some color
like the pasta with broccoli recipe shown below.


from forming and getting to
target cells.
Convinced that broccoli
should be added to your
diet? Although 90 percent of
the broccoli grown in the
United States comes from
California, Florida's climate
is also suitable and right
now is the time to buy
Florida broccoli.
According to the Florida
Department of Agriculture,
St. John's County is the pre-


dominate location for
Florida broccoli farms and
the growing season is from
October to May. Here in
Lake City broccoli can be
found at KC's Produce and
Winn Dixie.
As with any vegetable,
fresh is better, and frozen is
second best, so be choosy
about vegetables. If you're
not sure how long the broc-
coli has been sitting on the
shelf, your better option is to


M ,W::. .D .*"w .
SUSAN SLOAN/ Special to the Reporter
to many side and main dishes

buy frozen. For the best
quality, look for crisp, moist
stalks (avoid broccoli with
dried out, cracked stalks)
with tight, small, dark green
to almost purplish heads. If
the heads are yellowing or
show flowers, these are indi-
cations that the plants were
left too long and the broccoli
is old. After it is brought
home, store broccoli in the
refrigerator.
Because it is sensitive to


ethylene gas that is pro-
duced by fruits such as
apples, avocados, can-
taloupe, mangos, peaches,
pears, and plums, avoid stor-
ing broccoli in the same veg-.
etable drawer with these
fruits to lengthen its shelf
life.
Although many people
enjoy broccoli just steamed
with a little butter, salt and
pepper, it is a versatile veg-
etable that can be used in a
variety of ways.
At breakfast, finely
chopped broccoli along with
a little grated cheddar
cheese makes a great
omelet. At lunch, a lettuce
salad topped with some
broccoli, raisins and some
shelled pumpkin seeds, is a
healthy alternative to the
ordinary garden salad. For
dinner, its uses are unlimit-
ed.
For a simple side dish,
steam the broccoli for approx-
imately 10 minutes and sea-
son with salt, pepper and one
of the following seasonings:
dill, tarragon, lemon or a
vinaigrette dressing.

For a classic casserole try:

Broccoli Casserole
3 cups of chopped fresh
broccoli (or 2 boxes of frozen)
6 teaspoons butter or mar-
garine
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup chopped onions
3/4 cup grated carrots
1 can cream of chicken
soup (undiluted)
2-1/4 cup herbed stuffing
mix
Cook the broccoli until tender


(steam or boil for approximately
10 minutes). Saut6 carrots and
onions in butter. Blend stuffing
mix, sour cream and chicken
soup together. Mix in carrots
and onions. Add broccoli. Bake
in a buttered casserole dish at
350 degrees for 1/2 hour.

For a main dish, broccoli is
a great addition to pasta. The
following recipe is a family
favorite at my house.

Pasta with Broccoli
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon ground nut-
meg
Salt and pepper to taste
2 large or 4 small boneless
chicken breasts
1 head of broccoli, steamed
until tender
1/4 cup shredded
Parmesan cheese
Melt butter in skillet.
Saute chicken breasts until
golden brown on both sides
(about 10 minutes). Remove
chicken from pan and place
on foil in a 350 degree oven
to continue cooking. Add
flour to the butter and pan
juices incorporating the
flour well. Slowly add the
chicken broth and then the
milk, stirring occasionally
until mixture is a nice saucy
consistency. Add the nut-
meg, salt and pepper and
Parmesan cheese.. Slice the
chicken breasts and add
with the broccoli to the
sauce. Serve on top of your
favorite type of pasta. Add
some garlic bread and you
have a great, healthy meal.
