By JUSTIN LANG

In a special meeting

and has worked for the city as

Sporting

scuffle

may lead

to tighter

security
Fights break out at two
separate sporting
events at Fort White
High School.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
FORT WHITE A pair of
scuffles at school athletic
events will likely lead to more
security at some Fort White
High School sporting events.
At the Tuesday night junior
varsity soccer game pitting
the Fort White team against
Taylor County, a fight took
place on the field after a Fort
White player was jumped by a
member of the opposing team.
Following the Tuesday inci-
dent, Keith Hatcher, Fort
White High principal, said one
of the Fort White players was
red-carded for being involved
Sin an. on-the-field incident.,
"We are awaiting the report
from the Florida High School
Athletic Association regarding
his part in it so that we can fur-
ther investigate and deter-
mine if there is any other addi-
tional disciplining that needs
to be done," Hatcher said.
Hatcher was attending the
game and said he saw the
player from Taylor County "lit-
erally jump on" the Fort White
soccer player and when anoth-
er Fort White player tried to
get him off, he was red-card-
ed.
In soccer, a red card means
the player is ejected and
according to FHSAA rules, a
player that receives a red card
is not allowed to play for an
entire week or a minimum of
two games.
Hatcher said the school
hasn't added any additional
punishment and is awaiting a
report from the FHSAA,
which school officials should
have before the end of the
week.
The on-the-field fight comes
on the heels of a scuffle which
took place Saturday night
after a basketball game, where
a woman was injured when
she was pushed to the ground.

LOCAL



Realtors get statewide perspective


By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.com

Members of the Lake City
Board of Realtors and local
business people with real
estate interests joined for the
organization's first luncheon
of 2005 Wednesday.
In the monthly luncheon,
held at the Quality Inn and
Conference Center, more
than 100 people were present
to listen to speaker Russell
Grooms, president of the
Florida Association of
Realtors.
The crowd also learned the
new year's officers for the
board and its subsidiary, the
North Florida Multiple
Listing Service.
At the event, sponsored by
Florida Credit Union, the offi-
cers for 2004 were honored


with plaques before Grooms
gave insight into a statewide
picture of real estate over the
past year and its outlook for
2005.
Grooms, a broker with
Watson Realty in Jacksonville,
said 2004 was a "very, very,.
very busy year" for the
Florida Association of
Realtors, the parent organiza-
tion of the local board with
more than 120,000 members
statewide.
In addition to providing
legal and technical support to
its members, Groom said the
association advocated for the
real estate industry in the
state Legislature and planned
to do more in 2005.
But in 2004, he said, the
damaging effects of the hurri-
canes required the most
attention from the association.

realtors, with no electricity at Gorda damage from storms caused in buyers get-
their office, their home or Hurricane Charley kept that ting home insurance, their


effects on closing dates and
damage to many properties,
Grooms said the real estate
market came back strong in
late 2004.
To speculation from media
that people are moving out of
Florida because of the
storms and no new residents
are coming, he said that just
wasn't true.
"Most people say let's put
these houses back together,"
Grooms said.
"In Florida folks are
resilient, they are going to
do what it takes to stay," he
said.
Statewide in 2004, Grooms
said real estate sales prices
were up about 24 percent
over 2003, and sales in North
Florida and the Panhandle
accounted for a significant
portion of the increase.

Commission


moves ahead,


sets workshop

T he Columbia County
Commission has agreed to
host a commissioners' work-
shop on Jan. 19 to discuss a
possible travel-expense policy
for commissioners. We misspoke Saturday.
The commission set the meeting in a brief
sentence from Commission Chairwoman
Jennifer Flinn. No discussion about the
workshop was held during a recent meet-
ing and no questions were asked and the
topic was not on the group's formal agen-
da. Commissioner Elizabeth Porter
reminded the group and those remaining
in the audience of the workshop shortly
before the meeting adjourned at 11 p.m.
Scheduling a meeting is not a solution,
but it is a step toward the possible installa-
tion of a policy that will help protect the
taxpayers' money.
Currently, no policy exists that governs
the travel spending of the county commis-
sioners. The county's elected comrnmission-
ers can spend money for travel at-will with
no checks and balances.
And it's been this way for decades.
We have been very critical of the lack of
a travel-expense policy for elected commis-
sioners. A very specific county policy
exists regarding travel-expense procedures
for county employees and .a similar one
needs to be in place for commissioners.
The commissioners continue to take the
long road to a solution and this is their
option. What they must do is correct an
important fracture in the county's operat-
ing procedure.
We're not against travel that is justified
for the benefit of county residents. We are,
against the possibility of any elected com-
missioner traveling on a blank-check
invoice without the knowledge of the elect-
ed board.
The people deserve to have their tax
dollars spent in an accountable fashion.

The Marine and one good cat


When I accepted my husband's
marriage proposal almost four
years ago, there was one con-
dition: Miss Kitty and I came
as a package deal. He thought
about it briefly, and decided that since Miss
Kitty was strictly an inside cat, and his two labs
were strictly outside dogs, there shouldn't be
any conflict. Little did I know what plans he
had for Miss Kitty's future.
Miss Kitty had come to live with me in 1998.
Strolling through the neighborhood with my
mother one day, I became aware that what
appeared to be an abandoned kitten was' fol-
lowing us, making more racket than I would
have thought possible. She seemed desperate
for a human, so I picked her up and took her
from house to house trying to find the owner.
Nobody knew anything about her, and I reluc-
tantly adopted the poor, little creature, never
realizing that my pity and sympathy for this
.homeless kitten would develop into a deep
attachment.
She became my "baby," and as cat owners
everywhere will readily acknowledge as typi-
cal, she took over the house, claiming an old
rocking chair as her favorite location for nap-
ping. Her major fault was that she had a bad
attitude about visitors. She either hid and
ignored them, or emerged just long enough to
sniff, hiss, and retreat a most ungracious and
utterly embarrassing response, from my point
of view.
They say tri-color cats have that ephemeral
temperament, by which they are sweet and lov-
ing one instant, but watch out! When the pupils
start dilating, mischief is brewing. Miss Kitty's
mischief would usually involve a low crouch
somewhere preferably out of my view; then, as
I unsuspectingly sauntered past, she would
pounce on my ankles with those little fangs.
She seemed to think that since it was so much'
fun for her, it must be fun for me, too. Kitty
logic! She even seemed to relish being sternly
scolded as a "little savage," "scoundrel," and
"scalawag." She also enjoyed poising herself on
the back of a dining-room chair, reaching out
to punch at me as I walked past.
When I started dating Don, I told him she
didn't like strangers, trying to prepare him for
her disdainful rejection. Though professing a
profound dislike for cats, he realized he need-
ed to try to impress this one, so he offered his
hand for sniffing and feline inspection. Would
you believe the little rascal cozied right up to
him as if he was the long lost buddy she had
been waiting for?


CAROLYN
OLDER


After our wedding, and the merging of
households, he set about on his training pro-
gram. Having successfully trained dogs and
horses for several years, he figured a mere cat
would be a cinch. As an old Marine who still
believes the Corps offers the best fighting and
survival skills available to modern man, Don
spotted potential in Miss Kitty's scrapper ten-
dencies, and decided to'make her a Marinecait.
He began "training" her in various fighter tac-,
tics and attacking on command (I was always
the target). He honed her natural skills so that
she would trade punches with him for minutes
at a time.
Her attitude, though, was clearly her down-
fall. A remarkably sore loser, she would hiss
and stalk off in a huff when the fight was called
in his favor. Nevertheless, she would get over
it in a few hours, reestablishing her attack posi-
tion, always attempting to use the elements of
surprise and swiftness to her advantage. One
day after about two years of "training," Don
announced that he believed Miss Kitty was
ready to be promoted to PFC (Private First
'Class).
During her waiting period for this honor,
however, Miss Kitty incurred the wrath of her
trainer in her typically feline way, by blithely
ignoring his commands to attack my ankles.
Being a cat, she can't quite overcome that
desire to do things her way. Being a dog lover,
Don can't understand her refusal to become
properly trained. The upshot of it is that she is
indefinitely suspended from the Marine Corps
promotion list, pending remedial training that
results in unquestioning obedience to her
trainer.
Somehow, I doubt she will ever achieve the
exalted "PFC" status. But with typically
focused determination, Don will probably
never stop trying to reshape her future as a
skilled Marine fighting machine.

for having one of the lowest
cigarette taxes in the nation.
It has not always been so.
The late Gov. Lawton Chiles
was one of the first governors
in the nation ready to sue the
tobacco companies. ... Chiles
persuaded the Legislature to
establish an anti-smoking
program aimed at teens that
would become a model for
the nation.


against youth smoking


Students Working Against
Tobacco (SWAT) produced
in-your-face ads and other
programs that were largely
responsible for a 58 percent
drop in middle school smok-
ing and a 37 percent reduc-
tion in high school smokers
between 1998 and 2003.
Such statistics weren't
good enough for the
Legislature ... The funding
for the $70-million-a-year anti-
smoking program has been
slashed to $1 million.
So, for two years, the state
has turned a blind eye to
nicotine addiction. And as a
result, said the American
Lung Association of Florida,
one in 13 students in the


state is addicted to cigarettes
as early as middle school and
30,000 residents die each
year.
State Lung Association offi-
cials issued two modest chal-
lenges last week to state lead-
ers: Raise the state cigarette
tax to the national average of
84 cents and increase spend-
ing on tobacco-prevention
programs from the present
$1 million to $7 million.
The $7 million is but one-
tenth the level of the pro-
gram's previous funding.
And it is also far below the
minimum of $25 million rec-
ommended by the Centers
for Disease Control.

companion,


save a life

that exists between dogs and
their owners, and it goes far
beyond just the sharing of a
home together. These happy-
go-lucky, four-legged companions also pro-
vide us with constant unconditional love,
devotion and friendship.
I recently adopted a 10-week-old
Newfoundland mix from the Lake City
Animal Shelter. As I walked through the
kennel, a fluffy black ball of fur stared back
at me. With a whimper and quick stroke of
the tongue across my hand, I knew her life
was going to take a turn for the better. I was
sure mine would as well.
New to the area, it was my first time at the
animal shelter, and I was impressed. The
staff seemed to have a genuine interest in
the animals. The facility was clean, and
adoption fees were more than reasonable.
Animal shelters in general provide a won-
derful mix of adoptable animals. Some are
purebreds; others are virtually one of a
kind.
This is the third dog I have adopted from
an animal shelter, and I wouldn't have it any
other way.
It is a win-win situation. The dog gets a
loving home, and I get a friend for life. Plus,
I have someone to keep me company when
I find myself in the doghouse with the better
half.
Shelters are filled with animals that were
. and could continue to be great pets, as well
as animals that, with little training, can
become a cherished member of the family.
Adopting an animal from a shelter is gen-
erally less expensive than acquiring an ani-
mal through a breeder or pet shop. Of
course, you need to remember that the real
financial cost of a pet over its lifetime is not
its purchase price, but the food, grooming,
health care, toys, etc.
If you do not have the money to buy an
expensive pet, you need to carefully look at
your finances to be sure you can afford any
pet, and still provide the'care it needs.
Pet overpopulation is a major problem.
Too often, perfectly good animals are left at
shelters because owners can no longer
afford them or no longer have an interest in
the animal.
t According to a 2000 survey from the
American Pet Products Manufacturers
Association, about 9 million dogs and cats
enter a shelter every year. Nearly 5 million
of them are euthanized.
Animal shelters provide an invaluable
service of providing safe havens for animals
and matching,them to new, loving owners.
Adopting an animal from a shelter can be a
wonderful experience if you are well pre-
pared for a new pet. Shelters can also be a
great place to volunteer your time.
If you are thinking about getting a pet,
please stop by the Lake City Animal Shelter
and see what they have to offer. Adopting a
pet comes with great responsibility, but the
reward far outweighs the cost.
"He is your friend, your partner, your
defender, your dog. You are his life, his love,
his leader. He will be yours, faithful and
true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it
to him to be worthy or such devotion." -

the game as fans, had words

may fare well during the com-
ing "cold snap" as long as tem-
peratures remain' several
degrees above freezing.

/ Through the investigation,
officials have learned an adult
woman was also involved with
the fracas, and school officials
,have also asked that she be
placed in custody.
'The investigation is ongo-
ing and there is a possibility
that if we can identify, specifi-
cally who threw punches and
who was mostly responsible,
there could be some addition-
al punishment coming from,
the school," Hatcher said.
The Columbia County
Sheriff's Office confirmed
that it is investigating the

Laurie Windham, public
information officer for the
sheriff's office, said deputies
arrived at the school after the
fight ended. ,.
The students believed to be
involved in the fight are all
juveniles. Their names have
not been released.
According to a sheriff's
office incident report, no one
knew who started the fight.

dent into her, causing her to
fall onto the sidewalk.
Hatcher said Saturday's inci-
dent was the first time a melee
at the school resulted in seri-
ous injury to someone.
'We have had some minor
things in rivalry games ... but
there hasn't been any
instances where we've had to
discipline somebody after the
game for fighting," he said.
"We've been very fortunate.
These instances usually
involve kids letting their emo-
tions get the best of them."

ARE YOU SEEING
THINGS?
So-called "floaters" are small
semi-transparent or cloudy specks or
particles within the jelly-like fluid
(vitreous) that fills the eye. They
appear as specks of various shapes
and sizes, thread-like strands, or
cobwebs. These spots are caused by
small flecks of protein or other
matter that is trapped inside the eyes
during their formation before birth.
They may also result from the deteri-
oration of the vitreous fluid due to
aging, as well as from certain eye
diseases and injuries. Fortunately,
most floaters are not harmful and
rarely hamper vision. To be sure that
they are not symptomatic of more
serious problems, a comprehensive
eye -exam is recommended if you
notice sudden changes or an increase
in floaters.
Although floaters are not harmful
to vision, they could be a symptom of
an underlying problem. Remember,
you have only one pair of eyes.
Protect your eyes and enjoy good
vision throughout your life by having
routine eye health examinations that
include thorough examination of the
internal and external parts of the eyes
and screening for glaucoma and
cataracts. Call LAKE CITY EYE
PHYSICIANS at (386) 754-6616 to
schedule an exam, or visit us at 621
SW Baya Dr., Suitel01.
P.S. Floaters often seem to dart
away as you try to look at them
directly.

Playoffs

heating up

The most excit-
ing weekend of
the NFL Play-
offs is upon us.
The wild card
round always makes for
some good entertainment,
as we saw with three of the
games last weekend.
But by this weekend the
pretenders to the title have
usually been weeded out.
Added to the intrigue is
the fact that the Philadelphia
Eagles and the New
England Patriots are as frag-
ile as Goliath when he met
David and his slingshot.
Philly lost its top play-
maker in Terrell Owens,
and the Patriots are down
to wide receivers imperson-
ating defensive backs in
their depleted secondary.
Both are vulnerable to
upsets from the teams they
face this weekend -
Minnesota and Indianapolis.
The Vikings are coming
off one of their best per-
formances in months in a
31-17 win over the Green
Bay Packers. But the Vikes
still don't play defense par-
ticularly well and Randy
Moss is nursing an injured
ankle and is also hearing
the criticism for his "Moon
over Lambeau" routine.
Still, the Eagles are a com-
pletely different offensive
team without TO. Their
receiving corps is mediocre,-
and the only two playmakers
are Donovan McNabb and
Brian Westbrook. Also, the
defense isn't quite as strong
as in years past, and Vikings
QB Daunte Culpepper had
one of the best seasons for a
QB in NFL history. Vikings
31-24.
The showdown of the
week figures to be Colts-
Patriots. on Sunday.
Indianapolis is red-hot, hav-
ing won seven of its last
eight games to finish the
season and torching Denver
in the AFC Wild Card
Game, 49-24 last week. Of
course, Peyton Manning's
season has been well-docu-
mented, and his supporting
cast is stronger than ever.
The game is in New
England, the site of last
year's championship game
debacle for the Colts. But
with New England's afore-
mentioned injury woes, and
the Colts' improved defense,
Indy has suddenly become
the trendy pick to win this
game. Remember, last year
the Colts came to Foxboro
on a roll and left humbled
after a 24-14 loss. Despite
the loss of Ty Law, New
England is 8-1 during his
absence. And Corey Dillon
gives the Patriots offense a
dimension it didn't have last,
year. Patriots 24-17.
The Atlanta Falcons are
the Jekyll and Hyde of this
year's playoffs. When
they're on, they're great.
But when they're off...
Anyone remember the Falcs
went down 56-10 to Kansas
City earlier this year? St.
Louis is indoors on the fast
surface, and Michael Vick
doesn't have enough
weapons around him to win
this one. Rams 27-24.
Finally, there's this
week's playoff lock. The
Pittsburgh Steelers are 15-1
and have homefield advan-
tage throughout the play-
offs. The Jets went 10-6 and
were one conservative
Marty Schottenheimer call
away from losing last week.
Steelers 24-13.

Columbia coach to be announced Friday


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com

When the buck stops. on Super-
intendent Sam Markham's desk, he
wants to make sure the currency is
sound.
Interviews of the four finalists for
'the head football coaching position at
Columbia High were held Tuesday at
the school.
Principal Joann Chamberlin sat in
on the interviews and met with
Markham on Wednesday afternoon
with the committee report.
Markham has taken the report into
consideration and plans to release the
official recommendation on Friday.


Frank Beasley, Danny Green, Mike
Pittman and Greg Stanton were the
candidates. Mario Coppock, ,Mike
Jarrell, Bob McMa-
nus, Tonita Orr, Joe
Robinson, Jeff Tyre
and Danny Witt TrGE s
were the commit-
tee members.
"Before I release
the results, it is
important I have
conversations with two of the coach-
es," Markham said. "I want to give
them what my expectations are and
have them assure me that is the way it
is going to be.
"I want to make sure the answers


they give me are the answers they
gave to the committee and I want to be
confident from the answers they gave
that they will be a positive influence in
this community."
Markham said his major concerns
are a positive attitude, visibility in the
community, good discipline and a
commitment to work together with
school administration.
"I want to be fair, and I want to be
sure," Markham said. "I owe it to
myself that I am comfortable with who
I recommend to the school board and
that we can put the past behind us and
move forward.
'There will be no reason the board
will not be receptive to my


recommendation."
Markham said there are a lot of
other school concerns he is dealing
with and he must attend a conference
out of town today, so he will name the
coaching choice on Friday.
"The monkey is on my back and I
have to live or die by it," Markham
said.
"Once I am satisfied with their com-
mitment, I am prepared to give the
results. I want to be fair and I want to
be sure. I have to be the man-who puts
it before the school board.
"I am doing everything I can to
bring a good football program to this
community and get football back to
Columbia High like it used to be.".

They cut the cards in
wrestling to determine the
order of competition, and it
came up an ace for the
Tigers. Columbia High won
its fourth dual meet, beating
visiting Godby High 44-32 on
Wednesday.
After the cut, the match
began with the 152-pound
weight class, and Columbia
had Caleb Allen fresh off his
win in the Tiger Invitational.
Allen pinned Richard
Burkette in 4:53 to give the
Tigers a 6-0 lead.
Bryan Huggins (160-
pound weight class) followed
with a pin over Justin
Footman in 1:11 to double
the margin. Godby cut the
lead to 11-9, as Jason Nobles
(171) pinned Anthony
Dahlbeck, and Xavier Lamb
(189) decisioned Justin
Roberts 3-2. Columbia was
docked 'a team point for
unsportsmanlike conduct in
Roberts' match..
Brady Dicks (215) pinned
Jarvis Davis in 1:03 to offset
a CHS forfeit at 275. Merritt
Burrus (103) again pushed
the lead to eight points, 23-
15, with a pin over Michael
Stanley in 1:08.
The teams alternated pin-


falls with Columbia's Chris
Dahlbeck (119) winning over
Quy Nguyen in 1:31, sand-
wiched between pins by
Rashad Fletcher (112) over
Dylan Bedenbaugh in :57
and Kenneth Wortham (125)
over Ronnie Frost in 1:26.
Jeff Kennedy (130) scored an
11-5 decision over Daniel
Schul to push the margin to
32-27.
Matt Bohannon (135)
pinned Chris Mayer in 3:48
to force Godby to score pin-
falls in the final two matches
to win. Lavon Downs (140)
scored a 13-3 major decision
over Greg Poole, but the four
points put the match out of
reach, and the Cougars for-
feited the 145-pound match
to Cameron Tolar.
Bohannon said his match
was never in doubt, despite
the pin coming late in the
second period.
"I worked on shots, taking
the guy down, and pins aind"
combinations," 'Bohannon i
said.
"I went over the basics to
try and get them down for
the tournament."
Columbia will compete in
the Eye of the Storm meet at
Gainesville High on
Saturday. Wrestling for the
eight-team field begins at
10 a.m.

Elven Sheppard added 11 as

Moore said.
On Saturday, FortWhite fell
61-52 to Bronson High. "We
kind of fell behind and started
digging ourselves out, but it
was too big a hole for us,"

New rules in effect for various fish


From staff reports

New rules are now in effect to manage red
grouper, dolphin and wahoo.
The daily recreational bag limit for red
grouper is two fish per person (within the five-
fish aggregate grouper limit) in Gulf of Mexico
waters. The minimum size limit for red grouper
remains at 20 inches total length, and the daily
recreational bag limit in Atlantic Ocean state
waters is still five fish per person.
New management rules for dolphin and
wahoo are:
Designate dolphin and wahoo as restrict-
ed species,
Establish a 20-inch fork length minimum
size limit for all harvest of dolphin on Florida's
Atlantic coast,
Establish a statewide maximum recre-
ational harvest limit of 60 dolphin per vessel
(except 10 dolphin per paying passenger on
for-hire vessels),
Establish a statewide daily two-fish recre-
ational bag limit and a 500-pound commercial
daily vessel limit for wahoo,
Require commercial vessels, harvesting
dolphin and wahoo on the Atlantic Coast, to
have a federal permit,
Prohibit the sale of recreationally caught
dolphin or wahoo (except qualified for-hire
vessels may sell recreationally harvested dol-
phin), and A
Require all dolphin and wahoo to be land-
ed in a whole condition.
Other rules that continue to apply for dol-
phin include prohibiting the commercial har-
yest and sale of dolphin less than 20 inches
fork length, a 10-fish daily bag limit for recre-
ational harvest of dolphin and limiting dolphin
harvest to hook and line, long lines (outside of
state waters) and spearing.

Notice of ,Mortgage Crldit Certificate
Program ,
The Florida Housing Finance Corpora-
tion (FHFC) announces it's Mortgage
Credit Certificate Program. Section 25 of
the Internal Revenue Code authorizes
"Issuers" to issue Mortgage Credit Cer-
tificates (MCC) in lieu of qualified mort-
gage bonds. An MCC entitles eligible in-
dividuals to a tax credit against the indi-
vidual's Federal tax liability. The tax
credit amount is determined by multiply-
ing the certificate's tax credit rate by the
taxpayer's interest paid on the mortgage
loan during that year. In order for an in-
dividual to claim the credit provided by
Section 25(a), the MCC must be a
"qualified mortgage credit certificate" is-
sued pursuant a "qualified mortgage
credit certificate program". The follow-
ing criteria/requirements must be met:
Principal Residence Requirement
The homebuyer must occupy the resi-
dence as their Principal Residence with-
in sixty (60) days after the MCC is is-
sued. The homeowner ,will notify the Is-
suer immediately if the residence ceases
to be their Principal Residence. The
MCC is only valid during the time the
homeowner occupies the property.
New Mortgage Requirement
An MCC cannot be issued in conjunc-


Legal

tion with the acquisition, replacement re-
financing of an existing mortgage. How-
ever, a certificate can be used in con-
junction with the replacement of con-
struction period loans, bridge loans, or
other temporary initial financing with a
term of twenty-four (24) months or less.
Three-Year No Prior Homeownership
Requirement
The homebuyer cannot have had any
present ownership interest in a Principal
Residence at any time during the preced-
ing three (3) years ending on the date the
MCC is issued. This three-year, first
time homebuyei; %equirurment does not
have to be met if the residence for which
a mortgage loan application is being
made is located in a designated Targeted

Area. A listing of Targeted Areas may

prices which vary based upon location
and whether the home is in a Targeted
Area. The maximum purchase prices are
as follows:
Homebuyer Income Limits
