A large photograph of a

teachers bustle in and out,
the woman's gentle smile
greets each passerby. Her
eyes follow the progress of
each day.
Most vwho pass by her
portrait know little about
Minni J. Niblack, a philan-
thropist, who forever left
her mark on Columbia
County.
Some would guess cor-
rectly, that the school is'
named after her. But fewv
know the story behind this
remarkable woman and the,
legacy she has left in

filling up

for second

home show
Organizers encourage
local businesses to
sign up now.
By JUSTIN LANG
jIlang@ilakecityreporter.com
The Second Annual North
Florida Home Show isn't until
March, but the event's organ-
izers are already reporting a
high demand from local busi-
nesses wanting to participate.
Mike Gordon, chairman of
the home show, which will be
held at the Columbia County
Fairgrounds on March 5 and
6, said the interest for the sec-
ond show is "really starting to
pick up."
The event is sponsored by
the Rotary Club of Lake City
Downtown and co-sponsored
by Mix 94.3, SunState Federal
Credit Union and the Lake
City Reporter. It will feature
vendors from throughout the
area who carry products or
provide services of interest to
homeowners, those looking to
build or buy a house, or those
who areL fans of home
improvement in general.
After the success of the first
home show in 2003. Gordon
said it led the event to occupy
two buildings at- the' fair-
grounds because of increased
demand from businesses
wanting to participate.
"Right now we have about
'30 booths left," he said. "But
we have plenty of space on the
outside."
Gordon said new business-
es are seeking to sign up for a
spot in the show, but for those
who still aren't aware of the
event, he encourages people
to spread the word.
While the event is at about
maximum capacity for
Realtors, because it is limiting
the amount of vendors per cat-
egory, he said "in everything
else we are in pretty good
shape."
Gordon said the show is
about 70 percent booked.
"We still have some spaces,
but they are literally going
quickly," he said.
The fee for new businesses
to participate is $300 for a

Community pulls
together to raise money
for historical trip.
By RANDY ROUGHTON
rroughton@lakecityreporter.com
Everyone from the mayor
and city council to the
"Crocodile Hunter" helped a
Lake City teenager make her'
trip to President Bush's inau-
guration this week.
Three days before her flight
to Washington on Saturday,
Holiday Griffin had raised
$1,500 of the $2,000 needed to
make the trip offered by the
Presidential Classroom pro-
gram for high school juniors
and seniors. On Wednesday,

called to tell her they were
donating $500.
"I was really shocked and
excited," Griffin said. "Now I
didn't have to take money
from my college fund to make
the trip."
A long list of people con-
tributed to Griffin's drive to
raise money to cover the cost
of the program and her airline
ticket. Her efforts to raise the
money, which involved, con-
tacting local businesses, as
well as writing celebrities like
Jay Leno, Oprah Winfrey and
Dr. Phil, paid off.
Steve Irwin, the famed
"Crocodile Hunter," donated

Ray Kirkland challenged the

"We really appreciate every-
one who helped," said
Holiday's mother Joni, who
held up a two-page list of con-
tributors.
Although Griffin is one of
600 students, including 40
from the state selected for the
trip, she was the only one from
North Florida.

Creek Road (County. Road
325) as work is under way to

A man forever


in our hearts
The Columbia County chapter of
the National Association for
the Advancement of Colored
People is marking its 20th
annual commemoration of the
birthday of the late Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr. through tomorrow, remembering
with pride one of the towering figures of
American history.
It is hard to overstate the impact King
had upon all classes and races in the
United States. His leadership of the civil
rights movement during the 1960s
inspired a literal transformation of this
nation.
And though King preached non-vio-
lence, marchers promoting his cause and
adherents to the civil rights movement
were often beaten and sometimes killed.
Still, King and his followers persevered.
Great leaders are often remembered for
events in their lives or words spoken that
crystallize for eternity those things for
which they stood. For Martin Luther King
Jr., that event occurred on Aug. 28, 1963,
and the words are from his "I Have A
Dream" speech. Standing on the steps of
the Lincoln Memorial in Washington,
King spoke powerful, eloquent phrases
that many Americans can recite from
memory.
He said, "I have a dream that my four
children will one day live in a nation where
they will not be judged by the color of
their skin but by the content of their char-
acter. I have a dream today." And, "Let
freedom ring from every hill and every
molehill of Mississippi. From every moun-
tainside, let freedom ring."
Perhaps most memorable was his con-
cluding cadence: "Free at last! Free at last!
Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"
Only the most hardened segregationist
heart could have been unmoved by King's
passion and poetry.
Our nation was moved, and slowly it
changed.
Columbia County, like the rest of the
nation, remembers King.
The national holiday marking his birth-
day will be celebrated Monday, the high-
light locally being a parade through Lake
City beginning at 10 a.m. It is preceded
today with the 20th Annual Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr. Commemoration
Ceremony, 4 p.m. at Olivet Missionary
Baptist Church.
King holds a rightful place among the
pantheon of great American leaders.
The work.he began is not fully finished,
but we are a much better nation, and a bet-
ter community, because of his life.




Today is Sunday, Jan. 16, the 16th day of
2005. There are 349 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in Histgry:
On Jan. 16, 1920, Prohibition began in
the United States as the 18th Amendment
to the U.S. Constitution took effect. (It was
later repealed by the 21st Amendment.)

On this date:
In 1547, Ivan the Terrible was crowned
Czar of Russia.
In 1883, the U.S. Civil Service
Commission was established.
In 1919, Nebraska, Wyoming and
Missouri became the 36th,, 37th and 38th
states to ratify Prohibition, which went into
effect a year later.
In 1944, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower
took command of the Allied Invasion Force


in London.
In 1964, the musical "Hello, Dolly!"
opened on Broadway, beginning a run of
2,844 performances.

From Myrtis to Watermelon Park


Watermelon Park is located 9.1
miles south of Lake City on
US 41/441. The park got its
name many years ago when
local farmers used to bring
truck loads of their watermelons there to load
them onto big semi-trailers to be hauled to dis-
tant markets. It was a busy, bustling place dur-
ing watermelon season and the name
Watermelon Park seemed to fit what was going
on there. But long before it was called
Watermelon Park, it was known as Myrtis.
Here's how I'm told it got the name of Myrtis.
Myrtis Alethia IHawthorne (1875-1962) was a
smallish, energetic woman who lived just to the
east of Watermelon Park. A dedicated
Christian, she devoted her life to taking care of
her family and helping her wonderful neigh-
bors, people with family names like Axmann,
Butler, Hagan, Hodges, Lloyd, Robarts, and
Turner. Anytime they were sick or had prob-
lems or just needed a helping hand, Myrtis was
always there. Those were the days of the horse
and buggy and bad roads, yet Myrtis always
found a way to get to people who needed help.
She saw it as her Christian duty. She did not
even take Sundays off. She prepared a huge
meal early Sunday morning, then she invited
20-25 people to her home for a good meal after
church and she always made sure the needy
were there to get fed. So, to honor Myrtis's life-
time of good works, the community became
informally known by her name. The name
stuck and soon all official county and state
maps showed the name of that community to
be Myrtis. So now Watermelorn Park is just a
blinking traffic light, an S and S store, an aban-
doned Presbyterian Church, and two resi-
dences, but time was when it was a small thriv-
ing farm community well served by a kind-
hearted Christian woman named Myrtis.
Calvary's big heart

Calvary Baptist Church describes itself as
'The Biggest Little Church in Lake City."
Under the wise and kind guidance of the Rev.
Ivan Clements, Calvary certainly has 'as big
and generous a heart as any other church I
know. When Janet Gross, 87, died last year, she
had been a foster parent, Guardian Ad Litem
advocate, 17-year volunteer at Melrose Park
Elementary School, and four-time Florida
Regional Senior Volunteer of the Year. And she
did it all after becoming a senior citizen. More
about local dairies: Bobby Andreu reports that
his relatives had Andreu Dairy on US 41 South
after the Houser Dairy closed. Both dairies
were located where the Arky Rogers property
is now. People around the LCCC campus infor-
mally refer to the Alfonso Levy Performing

Respecting the
right of others
I am writing to disagree
with the view that the strip-
ping of religious symbols
from the public square
intrudes on the rights of
Christians to worship.
Take the Ten
Commandments that was dis-
played in the Alabama state
courthouse by Judge Roy
Moore.
This display is an endorse-
ment of not only monothe-


ism, but specifically Judeo-
Christianity.
One does not need this
government endorsement in
order to worship in their
beliefs. Hindus don't need
display of Vishnu in a court-
house to practice their
beliefs.
The government shouldn't
be advocating to the public to
worship a certain God or his
beliefs.
That should only be
between a person and his
God, if he/she has a God.


Religion isn't a mandatory
criteria to be moral.
One though doesn't need
to be religious to be moral or
a good citizen. One can be an
atheist and be moral, one can
be an atheist and be immoral.
One can be a Christian and
be moral or immoral.
What is necessary in a sys-
tem of self-government is
that people respect the rights
of others.

Still many


rivers to cross
Lest anyone accuse me of being
Pollyanna after last Sunday's col-
umn extolling the virtues and
bright potential of Columbia
County, we should acknowledge
that our area does face some problems, as
well.
Without placing them in order of impor-
tance, here are some concerns I have as our
community moves forward.
Drug 'abuse is a major issue here as in
almost all areas of the nation. As reported in
the Lake City Reporter's series Jan. 9 and 11,
lethal varieties of illegal drugs are destroy-
ing hundreds of lives in Columbia County.
The ripple effect of drug addiction is stag-
gering: Burglaries and other violent crime
stem from the financial needs of feeding the
habit; family relationships are ripped apart;
-prisons become overpopulated with those
sentenced due to drug-related crimes; kids
drop out of school; and many more problems
spin off from the drug trade.
The number of homeless and derelicts
hanging around downtown Lake City seems
to be on the increase. Perhaps some have
moved here just for a few months like the
snowbirds who relocate from northern cities
to Florida each winter. Nevertheless, tres-
passing, litter and other problems associated
with these people are increasing.
Our unemployment rate is less than four
percent meaning that employers are look-
ing for good people and anybody who sin-
cerely wants to work can probably find a job
yet there is a substantial amount of poverty
here. A casual drive down many side roads
will reveal substandard houses with junk fill-
ing the yard. Without statistical data to back
me up, I can only surmise that most of our
Neighbors ;who live :in these conditions also
have substandard! education. One problem
leads to the other. ..
Over the last month or so the amount of
litter cluttering roads in Lake City and
Columbia County has increased dramatical-
ly. ,We must find a way to transform those
who throw trash from their vehicle windows
from thoughtless slobs to citizens who care
about the appearance of their home. And
since that's a long-term project, we who don't
litter are going to have to pick up after those
who do. It chafes me to fill bags with litter
that some fool has tossed out the window,
but the alternative is having to look at it
everyday. So let's pick it up.
While we're on the subject of beautifica-
tion, the entrances to our county and cities
need sprucing up. As we all know, you only
get one chance to make a first impression.
Many of the entrances to our community are
less than impressive. A little landscaping,
signage and cleaning up could make a big
difference.
N I hear all the time that our county has a
shortage of moderate- to economy-priced
housing available for purchase. With our
fast-growing population this is a building
niche that should be filled. We are also in
need of moderate- and upper-end apart-
ments. Young professionals not ready to buy
a house have limited options in Columbia
County.
Our lawmakers must also get to work to
change the rules which limit building sites in
the county to five acres in most cases. There
is an abundance of land in Columbia County,
but much of it cannot be developed for neigh-
borhood-style housing due to land use regu-
lations. We want to hang onto the beauty of
rural Florida we enjoy, but there is room and
need for more development, also.
None of these problems or others I
failed to mention is insurmountable if
enough motivated people work together. It
must be done. This community has too much
going for it to allow our shortcomings to
derail our race to a better, brighter future.

NATION & WORLD

Abbas sworn in
as president
RAMALLAH, West Bank
Mahmoud Abbas, who
was being sworn in as
Palestinian Authority presi-
dent Saturday, starts the job
with a full-blown crisis on his
hands: Israel, with apparent
U.S. blessing, cut contacts
with his government until he
reins in militants.
Israel's startling reversal,
following initial good will
toward the pragmatic and
moderate Abbas, came after
Palestinian militants killed
six Israeli civilians at a Gaza
cargo crossing earlier this
week. Aides to Israeli Prime
Minister Ariel Sharon said
the attack was apparently
launched from a Palestinian
Authority base.
The United States
appeared to agree with
Sharon. "He's got to get
those terrorists under con-
trol," Secretary of State Colin
Powell said of Abbas, speak-
ing in an interview with the
Radio America Network.
The Gaza attack and
Israel's response dampened
expectations that the two
sides would quickly return to
the negotiating table after
four years of conflict.
After Abbas' election
Sunday, hopes had been run-
ning high that the two lead-
ers could break out of the
deadlock. Israel and the
United States had refused to
deal with Yasser Arafat,
accusing him of fomenting
terror.
Abbas complained in a
meeting with Israeli Arab leg-
islators Friday that Israel was
casting blame before he had
even taken office.

Official: Troops,
won't stay long
BANDA ACEH, Indonesia
The United States is eager
to end its military tsunami
mission as soon as other
nations are readN to take"
over, the Lt.. deputy secre-
tary of defeseaid-Saturday.
The United Nations began
paying survivors in Indonesia
to clear rubble.
Indonesia has expressed
unease with the number of
foreign troops on its territory
and wants them out by the
end of March.
"As soon as our military
folks can pass these responsi-
bilities on to other folks ...
and make sure the job gets
done, we will be happy," said
Paul Wolfowitz, who was vis- ,,
iting Indonesia, Sri Lanka
and Thailand.
He also said he hopes the
U.S. military's role in the
relief mission will be finished
well before the end of March.
"I would hope that we
would not be needed (in the
region) as a military long
before March," he said dur-
ing the flight to Asia, accord-
ing to a transcript of his
remarks released at the
Pentagon.
The U.S. military has 24
Navy ships, one Coast Guard
vessel and about 15,000 mili-
tary personnel involved in
the relief effort in southern
Asia. Those include 2,000
Marines who are ferrying aid
workers and transporting
food to victims in Indonesia,
the hardest-hit country,
where more than 110,000
people died.
Hundreds of troops from
Australia, Singapore,
Germany and other nations
are also helping the relief
effort, along with U.N. agen-


cies and scores of non-
government aid groups.

Insurgents hit

Iraqi military bus
BAGHDAD, Iraq -
Insurgents rocketed an Iraqi
military bus west of the capi-
tal Friday and 15 Iraqi sol-
diers were missing and
feared kidnapped, as insur-
gent violence and intimida-
tion escalated ahead of this
month's crucial national elec-
tion.
A senior American officer
acknowledged that violence
and threats by insurgents
might keep some people in
Baghdad away from the Jan.
30 polls.
The bus was driving to a
U.S. military post when it
was struck by rocket-pro-
pelled grenades near
Baghdadi, about 90 miles
west of the capital, said an
Iraqi National Guard officer
who identified himself only
as Lt. Col. Hesham.
He said the bus burst into
flames but no bodies were
found, raising fears the
troops had been taken pris-
oner.
Elsewhere, the U.S. mili-
tary announced Friday that
two Marines and a 1st
Infantry Division soldier
were killed in separate clash-
es the previous day.

school. In the 1920s that was
no small feat considering the
county's social and education-
al climate. .
Women had just recently
won the right to vote and
blacks and whites where
strictly segregated.
In 1923 and 1924 the county
consolidated all the smaller
schools into the Fort White
School, the Mason School, the
Columbia City School, and the
Kings' Welcome School.
Niblack donated 10 acres of
land where Niblack
Elementary stands today.
Niblack was the founder of
the first modern consolidated
school in Columbia County.
She not only donated the land
where Niblack Elementary
School was built in 1954, but
also raised the money to
match the funds that were
given for the building of the
King's Welcome School.
She continued to improve
her own education. She
received her early education
in the public schools of
Columbia County, which lead
into an elementary education
degree from Edward Walters
College.
She also obtained degrees
from Tuskegee Institute in
arts and crafts, a bachelor's
degree in elementary educa-
tion at Bethune-Cookman
College, and a degree in
supervision from Florida
A&M.
Niblack's dedication to her
dream of building up educa-
tion in Columbia County influ-

es along with other organiza-
tions have been confirmed for
the parade. Several marching
bands will also be attendance.
Grady "Sam" Markham,
superintendent of Columbia
County Schools, and Dr.
Alfonso Levy will be this'
year's grand marshals for the
parade.
Audre Washington, North
East Florida Leadership
Council first vice president,
safdiMarkhana and Levy were'
chosen as parade marshals
because of their leadership in
the education field.
"The theme for this year's
parade is 'Lets Come.
Together,' Washington said.
'"We're inviting everyone to
come out and support the var-
ious events. It's a day on and.
not a day off."
Washington said the North
East Florida Leadership
Council has sponsored the Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr. parade
for more than 10 years and its
an important tradition in the
community.
"One of the main things is
to iiot let people forget the
struggle." Washington said.
"The struggle continues and
Dr. King's dream has not
become a reality yet. We want
to let our young, people know
there is hope, and what Dr.
King stood for was not a black
or white thing but a right
thing, and we, as a communi-
ty, need to come together."
Washington said the out-of-
town marching bands require
travel and food costs, *which is
paid by the North East Florida
Leadership Council, local
churches and volunteer
organizations.
"What we love about it is
these kids are out of school
and they use their day off to
come to our parade," she said.
Following the parade, a
"Battle of the Bands" competi-
tion will be held at the stadium
with a $1 entry fee.
At 1 p.m. the North East
Florida Leadership Council
will host a Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr. Commemoration
Service at Oliver Missionary
Baptist Church,
Washington said the activi-
ties in honor of Dr. King harbor
a special meaning for her.
"Dr. King has always been a
man that I admired not only
as a man, but as a man of God,"
she said. "My two grandfa-
thers, who were Baptist
preachers, used to call us in
when he was on TV. Whenever
I see the speeches of Dr. King
on TV today, I'm reminded of
them. They always taught us to
reach out to others and it's
always a blessing to reach out
to others."

enced many local contributors
today. One such person is
Melvarose Scippio who taught
first grade in area schools for
33 years and now volunteers at
Niblack Elementary.
"When I was in around third
grade I would stay with
(Minnie J.) and then walk to
school," Scippio said. "She
would give me a can of sar-
dines for lunch. She would
sometimes have cheese and
crackers for her own lunch. I
had that sometimes, too."
The Niblack house still
stands a few blocks away from
the school. Scippio remem-
bers that Niblack and her hus-
band, Johnson Niblack, were
one of the first ones in the
community to have a TV.
"On Sunday afternoons we
would watch a show called
'Omnibus,' Scippio said. "It
was an educational show, sort
of like the Discovery Channel
is now."
Scippio remembers Niblack
was a soft-spoken woman.
"When I knew her she was
much older and she didn't talk
a lot," Scippio said. "She loved
to show us (the students) how
to make things from nature.
We would make grass dolls
and turkeys from pine cones
and hang them on the
Christmas tree."
Niblack began teaching
from a one-room classroom
and went on to help mold the
county's schools to what they
are today.
Because of her dedication
and faithful service to the
county the school board gave
her the honor of naming the
school that she worked so
hard to build.

Saturday would have
marked Dr. Martin Luther
King, Jr.'s 76th birthday, and
with Monday being a holiday
in his honor, he is on the
minds of many athletes and
coaches in Columbia County.
"That's one of the guys that
you were taught from early
childhood was one of our


heroes," Fort White girls bas-

"I had already made it home

heard the news.
"Anger," Moore said.

Columbia County Riding Club has first day of events


By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter.com
On a bone-numbingly cold Satur-
day, several dozen people came in
their trucks and .trailers to Eagle's
Nest Ranch to watch the first day of
Columbia County Riding Club events
since the club was restarted.
"We didn't know what it was going
to be like," Riding Club President and
founder Janice Summers said. -"'-e've
got a big crowd out, and we're happy


we got a crowd as big as we got,"
The pee-wee event started at 4 p.m.,
with young children who were just
starting to ride participating in timed
events such as the arena race, the
Texas barrels, poles and cloverleafs.
For non-riders, the arena race con-
sists of a rider who must go around
one barrel before coming back to the
starting gate.
Riders must weave around three
barrles in the Texas barrels event,
then they must weave through five


poles in the poles race, and they must
negotiate three barrels set in a clover
shape in the cloverleaf race.
The first day's events were for fun,
and ribbons were given t6 those who
finished in first, second and third
place.
The children's' events were fol-
lowed by the older kids and adults par-
ticipating in the same categories in the
main event at 6 p.m.
Riders navigated the large course

Outside the course, riders took horses
of different colors and sizes across the
grounds in an effort to be more com-

Some horses were tied to their trail-

staying indoors until it was their time

Falcons battle Rams

for NFC title berth


FAt press time, the Atlanta
Falcons led the St. Louis
Rams 40-17 early in the
fourth quarter of their NFC
Divisional Playoff Game on
Saturday.
From staff reports
The Atlanta Falcons ran out
to a big lead over the St. Louis
Rams behind Warrick Dunn's
139 yards rushing on 14 car-
ries. Dunn's 62-yard TD run
with 8:05 left in the first quar-


ter gave the Falcons a 14-7
lead.
Dunn scored on a 19-yard
run two minutes later to
increase the lead to 21-7.
The Rams narrowed the
lead to 21-14, but Allen
Rossum returned a punt 68
yards for a TD to extend the
lead to 14 points. The winner
faces the winner of the

sota Vikings game in the NFC
Championship next week.

County High on Thursday at
6:30 p.m. ,
The Lady Tigers junior var-

said. "Created turnovers, capi-

"Because he was the one that
kind of put the foot forward for
black folks. And when I heard
about it, anger went through
my mind."
Moore lived in a different
world than we live in now. He
graduated from an all-black
high school, but by the time he
started coaching, he was at an
integrated school. It was the
first of what would be many
changes wrought by King and
other civil right leaders.
Columbia High junior varsi-
ty coach Dee Watson said, "He
(King) was a Moses for us. He
wanted us to live together in
.peace and harmony."
Although today's high
school athletes were born two
decades after King was assas-
sinated, they have heard the
stories from their parents and
relatives who passed King's
legacy down to them.
"I just think a man like that
paved the way for a lot of
black people today," Fort
White High student Jonathan
James said. "I'm very thank-
ful. Because now when I have
problems now, I know he
went through a lot greater
stuff so I can look back on
that and say, 'If he can go
through that, I can go
through anything.'"
James learned about King
from his mother, who read
him the African American his-
tory books from the very
beginning of his childhood.
Fort White student Brian
Coker has a unique perspec-
tive on the King legacy, as he is
the product of biracial parents.
"It's not difficult at home,"
Coker said. "Around the com-
munity some people might
crack jokes, but I just have to
look past that and not stoop to
their level."
Coker was impressed with
the way King was able to
stand up for himself and other
blacks.in such a difficult time,
and he said he will do a lot of
reflecting about the man on
Monday.
"It's a good day to sit back
and think about you should
be thankful for people like
that," he said.

King on his day, but on all

"It's a great opportunity for
us to remember the things he
did," Wilson said. "I think about
how I can make a positive dif-
ference in someone's life."
Some said they would spend
the day at the parade in Lake
City to commemorate his
memory, while others said
they would relax with loved
ones, but King still won't be far

"I don't take it for granted,"
Jackson said of the fight King
and other leaders of the civil

grateful for those situations.

Summers said. Summers pro-
vided some of the horses she
uses to teach riding lessons at

Anthony Norris is one of
those who came to the ranch
to watch the festivities. His
oldest daughter Zoe, who has
been riding for a couple of
months, was leading his
nephew Andrew's pony,
Sambo,:
She said Sambo was a
"very pretty horse to look at,
and so is its sister." That
would be Rain, who was being
ridden by another child who
was a beginner. Zoe rides a
big horse named Little Man,
and she took part in the pee-
wee event in the afternoon.
Zoe said her favorite part of
riding a horse is that "you can

"Definitely," he said. "It

gives them something to do.
It teaches the kids responsi-

Four-year-old Devin Adams
was a bit reluctant to talk
about his first time riding, but
as he rode Sambo he said his
favorite part of riding was that
it was "fun."
Lesley Blakley, 6, already
has his own horse, a minia-
ture horse named Dr. Pepper.
His grandmother, Riding
Club secretary Deborah
Blakley, said, "If we can find
him a really gentle, well-
broke sound horse," Lesley
can ride a bigger one in the
future. -Lesley's parents wc-re
on hand to watch as grand-
mother led grandson during
the Texas barrels portion of
the event.
Summers hopes this is just
the start of what could


become a big Riding Club
experience.
"The county's donated 10
acres already, and then
they're going to donate us 10
more hopefully," Summer
said. '"Then we've got a $2 mil-
lion arena that's going to be
built. And it's going to be a
covered arena for handi-
capped. We're going to have
big facilities. It's going to
have RV hookups. It's really
going to be a nice place.
We're going to have 100 horse
stalls."
That facility will be located
at Winfield. Events will take
place on the first. and last
Saturday of each month, and
in the ftiture Summers plans to
have events like team roping.
Summers said the response
as been "wonderful" since
word got out the club was re-
starting.' '
And from the smiles on the
faces of the children and the
parents who watched them,
braving the cold was a good
thing.

By SUSAN SLOAN much easier to know what about one-third of the way
Special to the Reporter you are looking at or where to between the horizon to direct-
l f,.1 ... ; ,I ... "- 11 1 .. ..... I.- ,I"


Stargazing can be as
simple as stepping
out of your back door
and looking into the
night's sky. Or, it can
be a passion involving sophis-
ticated equipment and a
never-ending search for infor-
mation.
It is no coincidence that the
stars seem brighter and clear-
er during the winter months.
According to Tandy Carter Jr.,
a veteran stargazer in Lake
City, this clarity is the result of
the lower humidity of winters,
as well as a calmer wind pat-
tern.
In the summer, late after-
noon thunderstorms coupled
with long daylight hours
reduce visibility. .
Carter, who became inter-
ested in the skies after watch-
ing the Mercury space
launch, is a member of the
Alachua County Astronomers
Club. The club meets monthly
to discuss and learn more
about space and its contents.
The club meets every sec-
ond Tuesday at the Powell
Hall Exhibition Center. The
meetings are open to the pub-
lic and begin at 7:30 p.m.
According to Carter, there
are three things needed to
start a hobby in stargazing: a
good astronomer's handbook,
a subscription to a monthly
astronomy magazine (or
access to their Web site), and
a pair of reasonably good
binoculars.
Although many planets and
constellations are visible to
the naked eye, binoculars
make it easier to locate and
view different stars and plan-
ets, and enhance viewing. A
telescope is ideal and can be
bought for a very reasonable
price.
With Internet access, it is

or planet.
A t
www.skyandtelescope.com or
www.fourmilab.to/yoursky,
you can get a customized
sky chart for the area and
weekly bulletins as to
what to look for.
For example,
Saturn is at opposi-
tion this week,
which is the.
term for when
the Earth is in
the perfect
position to
block the light
of the sun,
improving visi-
bility. Look for
Saturn in the
eastern sky
after dark, and
then higher up
mid-evening.
According to
Tandy, as Saturn
moves across the win-
ter sky, rings are "open-
ing" which makes them eas-
ily discernible with binocu-
lars, and will be impressive
with a telescope.
With the waxing crescent
moon, Comet Machholz is vis-
ible- with binoculars or tele-
scope high in the evening sky.
If you live away from city
lights, it may even be visible
with the naked eye on a clear
night. To be able to find this
comet 'and other celestial
objects, you need to know
your compass points and
where they are in relation to
where you live, as well as have
a little knowledge of geome-
try to determine what a
degree location means.
To illustrate, Carter said to
find Polaris, also known as the
North Star, you would look
due north and then follow a
line about 30 degrees (or


According -
to Carter, the North
Star is the only star that does
not move during the course of


the evening.
This makes it a good refer-
ence point for finding other
planets, stars arid
constellations.
Using this
refer-


ence
poin t,'
Machholz can
be found to the east
of the North Star.
Orions Belt, featured in the
recent Men in Black movie, is


also highly visible in the
southeastern winter sky. One
of the most easily recognized
star groups, it is made up of
the "belt," its "sword" and the
Orion Nebula. The two bright-
est stars of Orion are
Betelgeuze and Rigel. Orions
Belt is in close proximity to
Saturn, so if you find one, you
should be able to find the
other. And Sirius (the Dog
Star), the brightest star in
the sky, can be found fol-
lowing its mythical master,
Orion, across the south-
ern skies of winter.
For the early riser,
there is also a choice of
planets and stars to be
viewed. Mercury, Venus,
1Mars, Jupiter and Saturn
should all be visible.
Mercury and Venus
will be just above the
southeast horizon about 45
minutes before sunrise.
Mars, less visible, is also in
the southeast before sunrise.
Jupiter and Saturn are visible
throughout the night.
If the Moon is what interests
you, for the remainder of the
month, the moon shines high
above Orion as it moves
toward a full moon on Jan. 23.
Saturn will be the bright light
to the moon's lower left. Look
hard to find Pollux and Castor,
the "twin" stars of Gemini,


located to the upper left of
Saturn.
For serious stargazers like
Carter, there is a wide range of
Internet sites and software
available. Carter uses a very
sophisticated program that
allows him to use his Meade
LX200 telescope to its full
potential. While a simple pair of
bird-watching quality binocu-
lars have a 7X magnification,
his telescope and his variety of
lenses allow him to view the
sky with a 77X to 312X magnifi-
cation.
In addition, he has the capa-
bility to connect a 35mm or a
digital camera to the telescope
providing a means for some
exciting photography. Using
his software, Carter can pin-
point when a satellite might be
passing by overhead, find the
optimal time for viewing
Saturn and its rings, or identify
the names of the obscure stars
that he might bring in to view
while scanning the sky.
If all of this sounds interest-
ing, you might be interested in
the. online beginners astrono-
my course being offered at
Lake City Community College.
Although the course has
already started, Professor
Mustapha Kane said that it is
not too late to sign up. For
more information, call LCCC
at 752-1822.


In this photo released by NASA, the Orion constellation is
on the equator east of Taurus,containing Betelgeuse and
Rigel. The constellation was believed to be the final resting
place of pharaohs, where they joined forever with the gods
of the sky.

launch, is a member of the Alachua County Astronomers Club.

12 step recovery for 'Green Thumb, Syndrome'


By DON GOODE
Columbia County Extension Service

Last week, this column
described the symptoms for
t h e
tongue-in-
chee k
Green
': Thumb
Syndrome

to many
: gardeners.
For the
full text,
visit our
Don Goode web site at
http://columbia.ifas.ufl.edu.
This column suggests a 12
step recovery program for
those who are afflicted.

1) Admit that you are pow-
erless over your love for
plants. This is the first step
toward recovery.
2) Prepare flower beds or
rows in the garden before
purchasing more plants. Just
in case you have a moment of
weakness, keep extra potting


soil and large pots on hand so
you can up-size the new plants
until the beds are ready.
3) Consider investing in a
camera with a zoom lens so
you can capture those unusu-
al plants and landscapes when
traveling. When carrying
your garden photos in your
wallet or purse, hide them
under a family photo so your
condition is not totally obvi-
ous.
4) Use a privacy, fence or
shrubbery around your gar-
den and compost bin areas to
show respect for your neigh-
bors' aesthetic view. Plant
extra vegetables in the gar-
den to give to your neighbors
as bribes. Happy neighbors
help minimize. the effects of
the syndrome.
5) Seek the support of the
Extension Service, Master
Gardeners, garden clubs, etc.
as part of your therapy. They
can offer advice and take
excess plants off your hands
to lighten your burden. Soon
they may need your help for.
their own recovery.


6) Make a decision to mini-
mize the negative impact of
your Green Thumb
Syndrome on family and
friends while you are away
from home. Set up an auto-
matic irrigation system with a
timer to take care of the gar-
den. Use slow release fertiliz-
er and water retention crys-
tals in your potting soil to
keep your potted plants fresh
longer.
7) When going on vacation,
it is OK to take a garden tour,
visit a natural setting, or
attend a harvest festival.
However, be sure to pick up
some traditional tourist
brochures to bring home so
you at least appear to be "nor-
mal."
8) Take an inventory of
your plants and garden sup-
plies. A yard sale may be in
order. Perhaps a larger gar-
den shed or a greenhouse
should be prescribed as part
of you r recovery plan!
9) Avoid the urge to be
defensive when remarks
come, your way regarding


weeds and plants waiting to
be planted. Enlist the help of
the ones complaining by
offering them a hoe or shovel.
10) Keep a gardening jour-
nal. List ideas, inspirations,
lessons learned, etc. Take
time to ponder over your gar-
den and set goals. This jour-
.nal can be an integral part of
your therapy.
11) When out and about,
keep one or two currency
bills tucked back for garden
shopping. Limit your pur-
chase to this amount so you
don't get carried away by the
Syndrome.. Consider trading
in your pick up truck for a
compact, car to limit the
amount of plants you can
bring home.
12) Be prepared to assist
others who may be suffering
;from the Green Thumb
Syndrome., Seek ways to be
wise stewards of the environ-
ment and surrounding plant
life, giving thanks to the
source of these blessings.

Yes, there is hope of recov-


ery from the Green Thumb
Syndrome, but just in case,
keep a spare pot handy!
Happy Gardening!

LCCC headed in many exciting new directions in 2005


By Charles E. Carroll
LCCC vice president for Instruction
and Student Services

The new year of 2005 will
see some exciting new direc-,
tions for Lake City
Community College (LCCC).
In addition to adding new fac-
hl Eulty and
.!. courses,
the col-
s lege will
It undergo a
redesign
of its

tional
organiza-
tion to
Charles E. enhance
Carroll several of
the major training needs in
the area, state and nation.
As most newspaper read-
ers know, there is a critical
need for nurses in this area
and nationwide. Other health
industry jobs face a similar
situation, although not as dra-
matic. To,help address these
problems, beginning in
August 2005, the college's
division of Allied Health
Programs will become the
Allied Health Academy.
Abraham Pallas, Ph.D., will
move from the position of
chairman of Allied Health
Programs to become execu-


tive director of the Academy.
He will report to Dean of
Occupational Programs Ron
Natale, Pallas has the tasks
of expanding all of the pro-
grams in the Academy and
finding ways to increase
enrollment in key programs.
Additionally, he will lead the
college's effort to affiliate
with other community col-
leges to offer students the
ability to move between insti-
tutions to complete their
training in specialty pro-
grams. Students from other
colleges will also be able to
do the same thing, ending up
by completing one of LCCC's
programs after starting at a
different community college.
To expand LCCC's capabil-
ities and find ways to increase
enrollment in the nursing
programs;'-the position of;
director of nursing has been
created. This leader has the
responsibility for all levels of
nurse training, from the cer-
tificate level of Patient Care
Assistant, through the
Practical Nurse training pro-
gram, to the Associate
Degree in Nursing, which
prepares students to become
eligible to take the national
licensure exam leading to the
status of registered nurse.
Robbie Carson, current head


of the Associate Degree in
Nursing program and coordi-
nator -of nursing has been
appointed as the new director
of nursing. Carson is also
responsible for working
directly with medical facilities
and leaders to provide oppor-
tunities for their employees to
receive training to advance
their credentials through the
various nursing programs.
By making these changes,
the programs in the Academy
will have more direct support
as shorter term training pro-
grams, enabling students to
move quickly into the work
arena.
The second area of instruc-
tion to receive enhancements
and: revisions is that of
teacher preparation... .,
Last year, the state legisla-
ture 'authorized community
colleges to develop and oper-
ate teacher training institutes.'
Under the community col-
leges, but in conjunction with
local school districts,. these
institutes will provide short-'
term training in continuing
education for currently certi-
fied teachers working in the.
schools, training for substi-
tute teachers and teacher
aides, and short-term .alter-
native teacher certification
training for people who


already posses a nonteaching
bachelor's or higher degree.,
With short-term alternative
certification, a nonteaching
degree person can become a
certified teacher in the state
without going back to school
to earn a separate teaching
degree.
Lake City Community
College has already initiated
planning with all five of its
school districts to work at
developing these compo-
nents, and has worked with
the districts to apply for
grants to help provide the
means to make this training
easily accessible to local citi-
zens.
In an 'additional piece of
legislation passed in a special
session this past December,,-
the legislature implemented
the Universal Pre-kinder-
garten law passed by voters
several years ago.
The college already pro-
vides basic training for child-
care workers and offers the
Child Development Associate,
(CDA) certificate training
called for in the legislation.
Because the legislature
put language into the law to


enhance training in future
years for workers in this
industry to achieve the asso-
ciate in science degree (A.S.)
in Early Childhood
Education, and eventually a
bachelor's degree, the col-
lege has developed the new
A.S. program.
The college continues to
offer its courses in education
for the associate in arts (A.A.)
degree for students who want
to transfer to a university to
receive a bachelor's degree in
teaching.
To facilitate all areas of
teacher preparation, LCCC
has established a Teacher
Training Academy. The
Academy, headed by an exec-
utive director yet to be
.named,.. will report, to the,
dean of arts and sciences.
' Both Academies will work
with Tim Atkinson, director
of workforce and community
education, to facilitate short-
term and continuing educa-
tion instruction.
For more information visit
www.lakecitycc.edu or con-
tact Charles E. Carroll at 754-
4321 or by e-mail
carrollc@lakecitycc.edu.

Business &


Real estate market shows sharp increase for 2004


By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.com

Local home sales, driven
largely by new residents mov-
ing to Columbia County,
ended 2004 with 132 more
homes sold for an average
.sale price of $20,000 higher
than the year previous.
According to statistics
from the North Florida
Multiple Listing Service
(MLS), which lists most prop-
erties for sale throughout the
county, the average sale price
for single-family, site-built
homes in 2004 was $132,151.
,There were 551 units (homes)
sold. Those sales accounted
for a total volume of $72.8 mil-
lion worth of site-built homes
sold in Columbia County.
By comparison, in 2003 the
MLS reported an average sale
price of $112,447 for site-built
homes in Columbia County
with 419 properties sold.
Those sales comprised a total
,sales volume of $47.1 million,
according to the MLS.
The increase in sale price
,and number of homes sold
from 2003 and 2004 is even
more significant than from
,2002 to 2003, but a trend
toward much higher property
value is apparent over the
three year period.
- According to the MLS' 2002
statistics, the average sale
price was $99,932 for site-built
homes in the county, with 357
.properties sold. That year's
sales volume, according to the
MLS, was $35.7 million.
"From a Realtor's perspec-
tive," said Kim Krill, a Realtor
with Re/Max Professionals in
Lake City, "I think the growth
is wonderful, we are seeing
people moving in from South
Florida and the northern
United States, which brings in
more revenue to the commu-

nity allowing us to grow at a
faster pace."
Krill said the influx of peo-
ple coming to the community
and driving up demand for
residential property will aid
the county in other ways,
such as some starting new


businesses and larger corpo-
rations taking note of the
changing demographics.
She believes those factors
will likely result in more retail
shopping, restaurants, indus-
try and subsequently more
job opportunities and avail-


able services.
With increased opportuni-
ties for people to spend
money locally, rather than
going to Jacksonville or
Gainesville, Krill said it will
help encouliage local money
staying in the community."


In researching the MLS sta-
tistics more closely, Krill said
she also found some areas of
the county had far more
homes sold in 2004 than other
areas.
The southwest portion of
the county, which includes


areas off Branford Highway,
saw the highest sales volume
in 2004 with 237 homes sold.
Second, Krill said, was the
southeast portion of the coun-
ty with 141 homes sold. In the
northwest section of the coun-
ty, by comparison, she said
118 homes were sold.
The areas of the county
with the lowest sales num-
bers, Krill said, were north-
east at 15 homes sold and
southern portions of the
county with 35.
Overall residential sales in
some of those areas could be
higher, however, as the MLS
numbers are for site-built
homes only and do not reflect
properties such as mobile
homes, condominiums and
townhouses.
While site-built, residential
home sales saw the biggest
increase in 2004, all real
estate in the county was up
well over 2003 for the year.
According to MLS statistics
for all properties in the coun-
ty, including residential, com-
mercial property and mobile
homes in 2004, there were
1139 units sold making up a
total of $120.7 million in real
estate transactions for the
year. In 2003, there were 755
units sold, according to the
MLS, making for a $74.5 mil-
lion total value for sales vol-
ume.
For 2005, it is likely local
real estate will see another
year of increased demand for
property and higher sale
prices, said Dan Gherna,'
executive vice president and
CEO of the Lake City Board of
Realtors.
"If it follows the last two
years, we are in for a banner
year in 2005," he said.
"Let's just see what interest
rates do (for mortgage
loans)."

FedEx Flying High
FedEx (NYSE: FDX) displayed
plenty of momentum in its latest
quarter. It reported that fiscal sec-
ond-quarter revenue soared 24 per-
cent year over year, to $7.3 billion.
Earnings likewise showed impressive
strength, rising 283 percent over the
same period last year.
A broad pickup in the global J
economy was a major driver in
FedEx's robust performance.
International priority shipment
volume jumped 12 percent in the

that strong growth in Asia was par-
tially responsible for the results, and
this region appears to figure big in
FedEx's future plans. Capital spend-
ing for fiscal 2005 is expected to be
$2.2 billion, including investments

toward the company's efforts in
China, where in coming years it

Grounded for years,


a Flying Wallenda


tries a comeback


By MITCH STACY
Associated Press

SARASOTA Mario
Wallenda says he doesn't
remember anything about
that day in January 1962 when
he tumbled from a tightrope
at the fairgrounds coliseum in
Detroit, an accident that left
him a paraplegic and forced
his retirement from the family
business.
The adopted son of Karl
Wallenda, the patriarch of the
famous Flying Wallenda fami-
ly of high-wire performers,
Mario was 21 when he
wheeled himself away from
the circus life. But he still
ached inside each time the
family packed up and left for
another season on the road.
Now 64 and retired after,
decades working a regular job
in a contact lens lab, Wallenda
is looking to get back up on
the high wire. He and his fam-
ily figure people would pay to
see someone named Wallenda
strap himself into a specially
built twQ-wheeled contraption
and motor across a tightrope,
perhaps stretched across the
Grand Canyon or between two
skyscrapers.
Wallenda says he's always
missed show business, and he
could use the money to sup-
plement his meager Social
Security income, but mostly
he just wants something to do
that makes him feel alive and
productive again. He's tried
woodworking, painting and
other pastimes, but nothing
engaged him.
"I'm 64, and hopefully I
have a while," Wallenda said
recently, sitting outside the
modest home he built years
ago on land his father bought
in the 1940s, when Sarasota
was the epicenter of the
Ringling Bros. and Barnum &
Bailey circus. "I just can't sit
around the house and not do
anything."
Wallenda and his nephew,
Tino, actually developed the


stunt for the 1996 Special
Olympics in Atlanta. But liabil-
ity concerns got in the way
and it never happened.
Later, in 2001, the
Wallendas hooked up with
Guinness World Records,
which paid for the rigging and
taped Mario doing the stunt
40 feet above the parking lot
of a Sarasota church. But for
whatever reasons, the seg-
ment never aired in the
United States.
But Wallenda, who took just
one practice run before per-
forming for the cameras, got
the bug again.
"I'm not going to lie to you.
I was saying, 'Oh my God,
what the hell am I doing?'" he
said. "But once I got going ...
it's just a trip to perform in
front of a live audience."
Lately, though, his family
has had difficulty finding audi-
ences for Wallenda and his
electric "sky cycle," which he
drives on the wire using
switches on a long balancing
pole. Apparently people who
would book his act are uncom-
fortable with making a specta-
cle out of a disabled person,
said his sister Jenny, who's
been acting as his agent.
"Nobody wants to see
someone who was hurt like
that go up there and maybe
get hurt again," Jenny
Wallenda said. "I think people
should see it. There are so
many people who are, para-
lyzed and are sitting there
twiddling their thumbs wait-
ing to die."
Hoping to generate some
publicity again, Wallenda got
the sky cycle out of his garage
again and did the stunt a third
time last month.
He made it the 72 feet
across the wire but didn't feel
comfortable in the chair this
time, didn't like the lighting
and admittedly was "spooked"
the whole way. He is unde-
terred, though, and anxious to
try it again, much to the cha-
grin of his wife, Linda.

LAKE CITY REPORTER, SUNDAY, JANUARY 16, 2005


BUSINESS BRIEFS


Four promoted
at Peoples Bank
The Peoples State Bank
board of directors announces
these promotions:
Chris Dampier to senior
vice president and chief lend-
ing officer. Dampier first
joined Peoples in July 2003
as senior commercial loan
officer after many years of
commercial lending in Lake
City and Columbia County.
ELonnie Haltiwanger to
vice president and manager
of residential lending.
Haltiwanger has been with
the bank from its beginning
and will lead the expansion
of the residential lending
function.
EGeetha Murthy to assis-
tant vice president and man-
ager of loan operations
department. Murthy brings
years of experience to the
position.
ECyndra Schwab to assis-
tant vice president and inter-
nal auditor. .
"I am pleased to have
these individuals recognized
by the board for their contri-
butions to the bank and for
the strength they bring to
their respective positions,"
said Wesley T. Small, Peoples
State Bank president.

Sales make 1.2
percent increase
WASHINGTON Retail
sales helped by sizzling
activity in auto showrooms
- jumped by 1.2 percent in
December, providing a solid
finish to a year in which sales
climbed at the fastest pace
since 1999.
The December increase in
retail sales pushed total
spending for the month to a
seasonally adjusted $349.4
billion, the Commerce
Department reported
Thursday.
The December gain fol-
lowed a much smaller 0.1
percent rise in November
and reflected the fact that
consumers were spending
heavily on new cars in
response to the return of
attractive incentive pro-
grams.
Spending on car purchases
shot up 4.3 percent last
month after having fallen by
1 percent in November..

Wal-Mart fires
back at critics
LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- .
Wal-Mart Stores Inc.
launched a media charge
Thursday to counter criti-
cism that the world's largest
retailer is a behemoth that
takes advantage of its work-
ers and stifles competition.
Chief Executive Lee Scott


said he wants Wal-Mart
workers to know the compa-
ny was speaking up for them
and he wants Wal-Mart to
have a better handle on how
it is perceived among mem-
bers of the public.
The company bought full-
page ads in more than 100
newspapers nationwide to
highlight its message that it
provides opportunity for
advancement and that its
stores provide mainly full-
time jobs that come with a
broad benefits package.

Many would
take new drug
BETHESDA, Md. Vast
numbers of people would
take a cholesterol drug if it
were offered over the count-
.er even though they don't
meet the medical criteria,
federalhealth advisers were
told Thursday.
The cholesterol drug
Mevacor has long been.avail-
able by prescription. Drug
companies are now asking
the Food and Drug
Administration for permis-
sion to sell a low-dose ver-
sion directly to consumers
for the first time.
The advisory committee
that is meeting through
Friday will make a recom-
mendation to the FDA, which
usually follows its panels'
advice.

Court halts
royalty checks
ST. LOUIS A Brazilian
court has temporarily halted
royalty payments to agricul-
ture biotech giant Monsanto
Co. by a farmers' group
using its herbicide-resistant
soy seed in a country where
the company long has strug-
gled to collect the fees.
I The ruling applies only to
the Cooperativa Triticola
Mista Campo Novo, the
group of about 8,700 growers
in Rio Grande do Sul, the
South American country's
third-largest soy producing
state. Most of the state's soy
production comes from
genetically modified seeds.
Worldwide, Brazil is sec-
ond in soy production but
has the potential to overtake
the United States because of
cheap land, low labor costs
and plentiful water.

Rate remains at
about 2 percent
FRANKFURT, Germany -
The European Central Bank.
left its key interest rate
unchanged at 2 percent
Thursday as. it awaits signals'
that the continent's hesitant
recovery has built up more
strength.


The decision by the bank's
18-member governing coun-
cil, meeting in Frankfurt, was
widely expected by econo-
mists. The key refinancing
rate, which sets the cost of
central bank credit to com-
mercial banks, has stood
unaltered since June 2003.
The move was mirrored by
the Bank of England, which
kept its key rate unchanged
at 4.75 percent. Britain has
not adopted the euro curren-
cy and therefore has its own
interest rate policy.

Food vendors
facing charges
NEW YORK Nine food
vendors were charged
Thursday with helping inflate
the earnings of a U.S. sub-
sidiary of Dutch grocery
giant Royal Ahold by signing
false audit confirmation
reports.
The charges come six
months after prosecutors
accused four executives of
the subsidiary, U.S.
Foodservice Inc., of inflating
earnings by $800 million by
reporting fake rebates from
the vendors.
Most of the nine men are
expected to plead guilty,
Manhattan U.S. Attorney
David Kelley said.
Netherlands-based Ahold's
U.S. properties include the
Stop & Shop and Giant
supermarket chains. U.S.
Foodservice is one of the
largest distributors of food
products in the country, sell-
ing to restaurants and cafete-
rias; it also distributes prod-
ucts under the McCormick,
Heinz and Nestle brands.

Ex-Online chief
pleads guilty
ALEXANDRIA, Va. The-
former chief of human
resources at America Online
pleaded guilty to fraud
Thursday for a scheme in
which he allowed himself to
profit from a sham consulting
contract.
Court records indicate that
Gregory S. Horton, 38, of
Weston, Fla., also defrauded
two former employers -
Florida-based AutoNation
and Denver-based Qwest
Communications 'of more
than $2 million in similar
schemes.
Horton faces up to 20
years in prison when he is
sentenced April 22. He also
faces a fine of up to $250,000
and could be required to pay
restitution.
. Prosecutors estimate that
he defrauded AutoNation out
of $1.8 million, Qwest of
$333,000 and AOL of
$100,000.

House Plan of the Week


An eye-catching cavalcade of
brick-supported wooden posts march
around the outer edge of the
Arundel's covered porch, which
wraps around to the left. Keystones
accent lintels over the gabled dormer
as well as both the single and double
garage doors.
In this multigabled, two-
story family home, gathering spaces
occupy most of the main floor.
Sleeping areas, two bathrooms, and a
large unfinished bonus room are on
the upper level.
Sidelights rim the entry, creating
a softly illuminated foyer. The great
room, windowed on two sides, is
much brighter. A wide bank of multi-
paned windows fills most of the front
wall, while another set flanks the fire-
place. This large room is partially
open to the dining room, with slender
wall sections marking the juncture of
the two areas.
Cooking and eating spaces line
the rear, with an efficient kitchen at
center. A roomy floor-to-ceiling
pantry nestles into an alcove next to
the refrigerator, and another closet is
tucked under the stairs.
Bring in a row of stools, and the
peninsula-shaped counter becomes an
eating bar as well as a great place to
hang out and converse with people
working in the kitchen. Sliders in the
nook open onto a wide patio, ideal for
outdoor dining when warm weather
beckons. A small powder room is
mere steps away, as is yet another
closet plus a pass-through utility
room that doubles as a mud room.
In the Arundel's master suite, two
closets line the dressing area to a
bathroom with twin lavs,'shower, tub,
and private water closet. Secondary
bedrooms share a handy two-section
bathroom with double vanity.
The bonus room can serve as
storage, or be developed for other
uses.
For a review plan, including
scaled floor plans, elevations, section
and artist's conception, send $25 to
Associated Designs, 1100 Jacobs Dr.,
Dept. W, Eugene, OR 97402. Please
specify the Arundel' 30-200 and
include a return address when order-
ing. A catalog featuring more than
400 home plans is available for $15.
