Columbia

Correctional

to receive

about $16M

Money earmarked for
prison expansion;
more jobs on horizon.

By ASHLEY CISNEROS
acisneros@lakecityreporter.com
Lake City may be getting
$16.3 million for the second
phase of an annex to the
Columbia Correctional
Facility as part of Gov. Bush's
new budget introduced
Tuesday.
The money was specifically
earmarked for the state prison
to get a 788-bed annex, said
Sterling Ivey, spokesman for
the Florida Department of
Corrections.
This is in addition to the
recommended S118 million
outlined in Bush's budget for
new prison construction,
accommodating more than
4.600 inmate_: s'.(*i--id-_-.
The first phase of the annex
is scheduled to be complete in
about one month.
The first phase added a new
secure housing section con-
sisting of two-man cells.
The facility recently hired
75 new employees because of
the growth.
The proposed 16.3 million
will add an additional secure
housing section and three
open bay dorms holding
between 60 to 100 inmates in
one area.
Additional money will be
requested to hire 60 more
employees, mostly security
staff, in approximately a year.
and a half.
The proposal is pending
approval from the Legislature,
which is expected, sometime
in March.
If approved, the budget
would take effect July 1.
Once construction is start-
ed, Ivey predicts occupancy
sometime during fall 2006.
The all-male facility houses
inmates of all custody levels.

Gov. Jeb Bush (rignt) and Lt. Gov. Toni Jennings present their budget for 2005-2006
Tuesday in Tallahassee.

Gov Bush proposes additional


spending, $285 million tax cuts


More than a third of
new money would go
toward public schools.
By DAVID ROYSE
4ssc'ated Press
TALLAHASSEE The
budget Gov. Jeb Bush ,pro-
posed Tuesday for the com-
ing year would increase
spending on most programs
and still have room for $285,
million in tax cuts, thanks to
a rebounding economy and a
post-hurricane jump in tax
collections.
Bush recommends spend-
ing $1.1 billion more on pub-
lic schools next year. That
accounts for about a third of
the new money in the budg-
et.
The proposed $61.6 billion
budget also would set aside
$3.7 billion in reserve,
'adding to a state rainy-day
fund that Bush credits with
helping Florida respond to

The proposal would
remain far below the antici-
pated growth in personal
income in Florida of 5.6 per-

"I believe this is a common
sense budget based on

ples," Bush said.
The Legislature will con-
sider Bush's recommenda-
tion when it formally con-,
venes in March.

leaders said they might dis-

A Lake City man arrested
Sunday on charges of grand
theft is wanted by the FBI for
the alleged rape of a child in
Tennessee.
Walter Franklin Vowell, 39,
was suspected by his employ-

Olustee Battle Festival organizers begin publicity efforts
gi, u, etyefot


Event organizers look
to expand interest
across state lines.
By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.com
The 2005 Olustee Battle
Festival and Re-enactment is
still a month away, but the
event's organizers are
already making efforts to
spread the word.
Hoping the event will be
met with good weather is
also on their mind.
The Blue-Grey Army,
organizers of the festival, are
optimistic this year's event,
presented by First Federal
Savings Bank of Florida, will
surpass that of 2004, when an
unexpected three days of


rain all but washed out atten-
dance.
This year the event will be
held from Feb. 18-20.
Local media outlets
received a sneak peak of
what's to come in this year's
festival during a Tuesday
luncheon at the Quality Inn
and Conference Center.
Tuesday's event was hosted'
by the Blue-Grey Army and
the Columbia County Tourist
Development Council. ,
Dennis Roberts, last year's
commanding general of the
Blue-Grey Army will again
fill the post, having volun-
teered for the honor follow-
ing last year's bad weather.
"It's just going to be a
beautiful North Florida
weekend with great weather,
I've already checked on

Harvey Campbell, execu- part of the "history and her-


itage" of North Central
Florida.
"And that is what the core
of Olustee is all about," he
said.
Campbell also thanked
Duffy Soto, a local artist who
has created the official pro-
motional poster for the festi-
val for the past eight years
free of charge.
"I'm willing to pay back in
any way that I can," Soto
said, commenting on how
much the community has
given him in the past.
Campbell said the Blue-
Grey Army may seek more
national attention for the fes-
tival in future years by seek-
ing a national title sponsor.
However, he said more
research and detailed demo-
graphics about the festival


and its attendees have to be
compiled.
The festival has become a
destination for students
around Florida and Georgia
to experience history.
Elaine McGrath, manager
of the Nature and Tourism
Center in White Springs,
who also oversees the state
park at the Olustee
Battlefield, said more than
1,600 students from various
schools have registered to
attend the re-enactment and
festival.
McGrath said that number
could grow beyond 2,000.
"We are real excited about
it," Roberts said.
"We hope that it will be
something everyone can
look forward to and back
upon with fond memories."

LOCAL & STATE


City seeks grants to fix storm erosion


JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.com

Though the hurricanes that
slammed Lake City in
September are long gone, the
city is still trying to fix prob-
lems the storms made appar-
ent.
On Tuesday, the City
Council unanimously
approved attempting to seek
grants from the U.S.
Department of Agriculture
totaling about $99,000 to
repair stormwater drainage
problems on McFarlane
Avenue and behind Parkview
Baptist Church.
"I think what the storms did
was point out the more severe
drainage problems we have in
the city," said City Manager
Joe Cone.
-One of the more pressing
problems, Cone said, is a
"box" culvert that goes
beneath McFarlane that has
begun to erode, brought on
by the heavy rainfall of hurri-
canes Jeanne and Frances.
Cone said there is no imme-
diate danger to drivers on the
road, but "it needs to be stabi-


lized before it gets any
worse."
He said that project would
cost about $44,000 to fix the
culvert and modify it
upstream to better slow the
water down that enters the
culvert's opening underneath
McFarlane.
Without those repairs,
Cone said "eventually the box
culvert would begin to sink."
Repair is also needed to fix
erosion behind Parkview
Baptist Church off Madison
Street, he said. Because of
heavy rainfall, Cone said there
are headwaters that run into
nearby Gwen Lake that have
caused "siltation" in the lake,
making the water more
cloudy and full of sediment.
Cone said the project would
cost about $55,000.
"So we are going to pay for
those projects to correct
those problems and prevent a
future occurrence," he said.
However, although the city
is applying for the grants from
the USDA, Cone said they are
competitive and there is no
guarantee they will be award-
ed.


Additionally, even if they
are awarded the grants only
cover 75 percent of a projects'
cost.
Cone said the city will likely
pay for its portion of the proj-
ects with in-kind services,
such as using Public Works
crews to perform some of the
work "so there is no cash out-
lay for the city."
Cone said the Suwannee
River Water Management
District has agreed to con-
tribute about $10,000 to the
projects.
In other business the coun-
cil:
Officially appointed
Audrey Sikes as the new city
clerk effective Feb. 26 after
current City Clerk Mary Jane
Woods retires. Sikes has been
an administrative assistant at
the Lake City Police
Department for about five
years.
Her salary will be set at
about $36,000, which is the
city's starting range for the
position.
Unanimously agreed to
consult with Government
Services Group of


Tallahassee to develop a plan
to establish a rate for county-
wide fee fire per parcel
assessment.
Current city and county
residents pay a different rate.
The Columbia County
Commission has already
approved consulting with the
group to consider the merits
of a county-wide fire assess-
ment.
"The study will look at,
among other things, histori-
cally where the calls are,
where the population growth
is and what is needed to pro-
vide the level of service we
are going to provide," Cone
said. "It will also develop the
budget and determine up the
fee amount."
It is not clear whether the
county-wide rate would be
higher .than the $55 the city
started charging this year, the
maximum current city ordi-
nance will allow.

White Springs seeks funding for dance pavilion

WHITE SPRINGS The
White Springs Town Council
held its first meeting of the
new year Tuesday night.
High on the agenda was an
extensive report on the old
business item of building a
new dance pavilion that
would also serve as an emer-
gency shelter for White
Springs.


"We don't have a storm
shelter for our community
including the five-mile radius
surrounding us that is cov-
ered by our fire department,"
said Town Manager Robert
Townsend.
He discussed the immi-
nent need for a shelter as the
two previous shelters were
no longer approved due to
their age.
The proposed plan would
yield economic benefits by


attracting tourists to the
area.
In addition, it would serve
as a shelter from hazardous
conditions.
The problem now is get-
ting the land and getting
money for the project as the
facility bears a $25 million
price tag.
Townsend spoke -of possi-
bly using the $65 thousand
given from FEMA in light of
the busy hurricane season,


to use as seed money toward
the project.
The council voted unani-
mously to support the com-
munity budget issue request
for the new dance pavilion
and to pursue more state
sources for funding and
grants.
Other highlights include
the appointment of commu-
nity member Florine
Roberts to the traffic com-
mittee.


White Springs Town Council members Shirley Heath, Robert
Townsend and Todd Kennedy look over a proposal for a $25
million dance pavilion and emergency shelter.

Locking up



state funds



for prison

The word Tuesday afternoon
that the freshly unveiled state
budget proposal of Gov. Jeb
Bush included a line-item proj-
ect designated for Lake City
was good news.
The budget proposal includes $16.3 mil-
lion for the completion of Phase 2 of a
prison expansion project at the state-run
Columbia Correctional Facility east of
Lake City.
On paper, this means approximately 60
new jobs at the 788-bed facility that would
be completed and accepting prisoners
sometime in 2006.
It's always nice to see Lake City or
Colutnbia County specifically designated
as the recipient of a project that is com-
pletely funded with state money. It doesn't
get any better than having our state tax
money returned to us in the form of such
an important project.
Our county sees a direct benefit at many
levels from the corrections industry. The
Phase 1 portion of the Columbia
Correctional Facility will be complete with-
in the next 30 days and will employ 75 full-
time workers when prisoners arrive.
It's good to see another development
shaping up for Columbia County. Sure,
there are a lot of hoops to be jumped
through in Tallahassee before the check is
cut and the ground is broken at the site,
but it's a pretty good indication that this
prison project is important and on the
front burner at the governor's office.
We'll keep an eye on the legislative
process and we'll anxiously await the
arrival of the $16.3 million check.



Today is Wednesday, Jan. 19, the 19th day
of 2005. There are 346 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:

Fifty years ago, on Jan. 19, 1955, a presi-
dential news conference was filmed for tele-
vision for the first time, with the permission
of President Eisenhower.

On this date:
In 1736, James Watt, inventor of the
steam engine, was born in Scotland.
In 1807, Robert E. Lee, the commander-
in-chief of the Confederate armies, was
born in Stratford, Va.
In 1809, author Edgar Allan Poe was born
in Boston.
In 1853, Giuseppe Verdi's opera "II
Trovatore" premiered in Rome.
In 1861, Georgia seceded from the Union.
In 1944, the federal government relin-
quished control of the nation's railroads fol-
lowing settlement of a wage dispute.
In 1966, Indira Gandhi was elected prime
minister of India.
In 1970, President Nixon nominated G.
Harrold Carswell to the Supreme Court;
however, the nomination was defeated
because of controversy over Carswell's past
racial views.
In 1977, in one of his last acts of office,
President Ford pardoned Iva Toguri
D'Aquino, an American who'd made
wartime broadcasts for Japan.
In 1981, the United States and Iran signed


an agreement paving the way for the release
of 52 Americans held hostage for more than
14 months.

Enjoying a 'Purpose Driven Life'


through studious deep thinking


What on earth are you here for?
What is the purpose of your
existence? In his best-selling
book, "'The Purpose-Driven
Life," Rick Warren supplies
the answers to these questions, using Bible
scriptures that demonstrate God's purpose for
creating each one of us.
In September 2002, when my pastor
announced that our church would be partici-
pating in a nationwide 40-day campaign along
with more than a thousand other churches,
based on something called 'The Purpose-
Driven Life," most of us were in the dark. We
had never heard of Rick Warren or Saddleback
Church. We were introduced by a very stir-
ring video of Warren addressing his congrega-
tion on God's purpose for our existence. We
were excited and inspired. Eager participation
followed, as we learned during the next 40
days why we were put on earth, and what
changes we needed to make to fulfill our pur-
pose.
Three months later, the book was on the
New York Times bestseller list, and has
remained there ever since. With over 20 mil-
lion copies sold, it is the best-selling hardback
book in history. Thus far, it has been translated
into eight foreign languages, with more in
progress.
Why the popularity? Many people, including
committed Christians, struggle with the ques-
tion of why they were created. For those with-
out a Biblical world view, the question is espe-
cially perplexing. Accepting the first sentence
in the book, "It's not about you" is a major
springboard for looking at life through God's
plan, rather than our own.
Building on this premise, Warren introduces
five main functions for which each individual is
created, and expands on responsibilities relat-
ed to those intended functions throughout the
chapters of the book. In brief, these functions
are worshiping God, fellowship with other
believers, discipleship (becoming more like
Christ), ministry (service to God) and evan-
gelism (sharing the Gospel message of salia-
tion with others). Organized into 40 chapters
intended to be read over a period of 40 days,
these duties are defined, discussed, and ampli-
fied so that the average person has no trouble
understanding them. In fact, Warren has gone
to great lengths to simplify the book by using
short sentences and ordinary words, so that it
is as clear and comprehensible as possible to
every reader.
In explaining the relevance of "40 days"
early in the book, Warren cites numerous.
examples in the Bible which attest to that num-
ber as being a "spiritually significant time peri-


od." Some of them include Noah's transforma-
tion by 40 days of rain; Moses' experience
while spending 40 days on Mount Sinai; and
Jesus' empowerment by 40 days in the wilder-
ness.
Participating in a church setting was espe-
cially meaningful. The small group discussions
each Sunday, followed by emphasis from a ser-
mon related to the previous week's readings,
offered a chance to share insight and strength-
en our understanding. But judging from the
number of people buying the book on their
own, many are gaining insight from reading as
individuals as well.
Comments from people who have read the
book are positive and enthusiastic. One stated
"It made me ... more focused on the things
that we have in common and less interested in
personalities." Another gentleman was so
impressed with the book that he and his wife
ordered a whole case and gave them away as
gifts to everyone on their Christmas list.
Summarizing his impression, he declared,
'This book reminds us that God does not exist
to serve us, but rather we exist to serve God."
There's no arguing with success, and Rick
Warren is now in demand as a talk show guest,
obviously admired, and maybe envied by at
least one host whose own much-touted and
self-promoted book hasn't reached nearly the
sales he had hoped for. Warren is articulate
and humble in giving God the credit for the
book's success. He also gives God ninety per-
cent of the profits from sales, in the form of
missions and charity.
In the usual pattern of a best-seller that
spawns additional similar works, we now have
'The Purpose-Driven Life Journal," "The
Purpose-Driven Church," and other spin-off
titles for those who were so inspired by the
original book, that they want to keep up the
momentum by continued enhancement and
fulfillment of their unique purpose.
For anyone with questions about his pur-
pose in life, I recommend 'reading this
Biblically sound book

Media bias
shows ugliness

Our biased print news
media is continually omitting
newsworthy events we should
know about. For example, talk
radio is reporting the murder
last Friday of an Egyptian fam-
ily living in New Jersey. Not
just an ordinary happening,
but know this, this family was
preaching Christianity over
the Arab Internet. The
Muslims answered them with
threats of death if they did not


discontinue their Christian
teachings. The family contin-
ued and this- past week the
entire family was brutally
stabbed to death. Who said it
could not happen here on our
shores?
Our religious freedom,
already under attack by the
ACLU and others is now
threatened by the fundamen-
talist Muslims, right under
our noses.
When are the so-called
"Good Muslims" going to
come forward and identify
these murderers?


Be on your guard
Christians, if these murderers
get away with this we will
become targets like Muslim
victims in other countries.
Question: Have you seen
in print this newsworthy
event? Turn on the talk radio
programs and get the com-
.plete news, unbiased. You
can't depend on print media
for anything but selective,
spoon-fed news of their
choosing.

)re paiful


iite noise


on game day
t was a Sunday-afternoon flashback; a
sick feeling of despair. I thought my
wife was going to flog me, even
though it wasn't my fault. No cable TV
on a crucial. NFL Sunday afternoon.
It's playoff January and no signal, just white
noise. And it all came rushing back, as my
wife reminded me that calling the cable
company and reporting the outage was not a
good enough response. I should also get out
of the house and search the neighborhood
until I found the problem, or at least some-
one qualified to repair the problem.
So I left the house and started down the
block. It was safer than staying inside with a
scorned NFL fan. And as I was heading into
the afternoon sunshine, I started thinking
about a funny story from our newlywed
days.
We had been married about five months
on Jan. 28, 1996, and I was the editor of a
small paper in Perryville, Mo. It was bitterly
"cold with knee-deep snow on the ground on
Super Bowl Sunday and we were gearing up
to stay warm and watch the game. For
ambiance, we had prepared the normal tail-
gate fare one would eat on game day.
Nachos and other assorted dips, plus
bratwursts cooked on a gas grill strategical-
ly dragged onto the back porch were the
afternoon snack and dinner during all the
pregame festivities that after about a half
hour become annoying and make the game
that much sweeter.
We had gonethrough pregame introduc-
tions of the teams, the final low-rent com-
mercial and the national anthem when the
teams took the field for the kickoff ... and
the cable went off.
We assured each other there was no need
to panic. It would return soon. Probably a
minor technical glitch. We gazed blankly at
the screen and solemnly munched'on a sec-
ond helping of nachos.
After about 15 minutes and another brat,
we became annoyed, abandoned the color
TV downstairs in exchange for the 12-inch
portable upstairs a black-and-white screen
with rabbit ears.
"Bring the tinfoil," she snapped, as she
darted up the stairs.
Perryville is near St. Louis, but not close
enough for the signals of the network sta-
tion carrying the game that year to pene-
trate the Ozark foothills around us. We fash-
ioned tinfoil around those twin antennas in
various shapes and figures, but nothing.
Once every couple of minutes, the snowy
screen would flash and for a mental instant
we could see that a football game was actu-
ally being played.
Hours went by and the game ended and
we saw nothing. No cable, and our remote
location also prevented us from picking up a
radio broadcast. Sources the next day
revealed that Dallas had whipped
Pittsburgh 27-17 to win the Lombardi
Trophy in .Super Bowl XXX.
We received more than a dozen letters to
the editor complaining about the outage that
had plagued the entire city, which included
about 8,000 cable customers. Our headline
and follow-up story in the paper the next day
screamed "Fumble!" in 80-point type. The
story that detailed what happened was not
flattering. Seems the on-call cable repair
man was at a Super Bowl party at a friend's
house watching the game on satellite -
and refused to answer his pager to go repair
what turned out to be a very important
main-line switch that controlled the entire
town and would have taken about 10 min-
utes to repair.
Not really sure what line of work he's in
today, but he was asked to surrender the
pager on Monday morning. The company
withheld his name claiming personnel rea-
sons, but we all knew it was for his own pro-
tection.
On Sunday, I found our Time-Warner
cable man hard at work at the corner,
down on his knees quickly repairing a
shorted-out underground connection and
restoring our window into the Vikings-
Eagles game.
Tensions were eased and I was able to
return home.

Environmental health continues


monitoring county rabies case


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

Columbia County
Environmental Health offi-
cials continue to monitor a sit-
uation where a local man may
have been exposed to rabies.
The possible exposure may
have come after a rabid rac-
coon attacked his two dogs
last week. The man could
have been exposed to the fatal
disease while breaking up the
fight, according to reports.
Mark Lander, Columbia
County Environmental Health
Department director, said the
man is still deciding whether
to get the series of shots in
his arm to repel the disease.
'We're still working with
the individual who possibly


came into contact with the
raccoon, it's nothing definite,"
Lander said. "We're still work-
ing with him to see whether
or not he wants to go through
the series of shots."
The raccoon attack took
place in south Columbia
County off U.S. 441 South
near County Road 349.
"We've had no more calls or
animals to take in," Lander
said. '"There's been no more
attacks from any wild animals
on domesticated animals. As
it stands, there's nothing new
to report."
He said there also hasn't
been an increase in telephone
calls for rabies-related cases
or incidents to the environ-
mental health department
since last week's case was


reported.
Environmental health
department officials sent the
animal's remains to be tested
for rabies, and the results
showed the raccoon was
rabid.
The man's unvaccinated
dog was then euthanized, and
the other dog remains under
a 45-day quarantine.
Rabies is a deadly viral dis-
ease that can be prevented,
but not cured. The virus
attacks the nerves and brain
tissue of warm-blooded ani-
mals including people.
During the past 50 years, at
one time or another, cases of
rabies in raccoons have been
reported from every county
in Florida,
I Florida is considered to be


at risk for raccoon rabies. All
raccoons, even those kept as
pets, regardless of their ori-
gin or vaccination status, are
considered at high-risk for
rabies.
"We are continually moni-
toring for rabies," Lander
said. "It's not really a funded
program, but it's an annual
program and we will continue
with it, especially in cases like
this where we've had one pos-
itive incident. We want to
make sure that the people in
that area know how to pick
out behaviors that may show
animals have rabies."
Last week's case of rabies
was the first positive identifi-
cation in Columbia County in
. two years and only the third
in the past five years.


Safer roads top priority at meeting


By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter.com
Running red lights and dan-
gerously driving ATVs were
topics of discussion Tuesday
by the Columbia County
Community Traffic Safety
Team.
Members from city, county
and state agencies used the
meeting to focus on making
roads in Columbia County
safer for everyone.
The committee revisited an
idea of installing white lights
at intersections to reduce the
number of motorists running
red lights.
The idea was brought up
after the Lake City Police
Department said it, has
received numerous com-
plaints about the issue.


The system works by
mounting a white light oh a
traffic pole and wiring it to the
red light.
Police.. officers can park
down the road or anywhere
visible to the white light and
detect red-light runners with-,
out parking at the intersec-
tion.
The white-light system is in"
use in parts of south and
Central Florida.
"We're writing hundreds of
tickets, and it's not doing any
good," said Capt. Gary Laxton
of the Lake City Police
Department.
Safety issues surrounding
ATVs were another cause for
concern.
Officials discussed the pos-
sibility of holding an event
this year to educate residents


of Columbia County on the
safety and hazards associated
M\ith ATVs.
Although no decisions
were finalized, the team
agreed it was a pressing issue
for the area.
"I get: calls froni Marion
County to the state line that
parents let kids ride ATVs on
the street," said Lt. Mike
Burroughs. a spokesman for
the Florida Highway Patrol.
Officials talked about set-
ting up a mock crash for high
school students before the
prom on April 30. Columbia
High, Fort White High,
Branford High and Suwannee
High would be invited. ,
The event,, the team
decided, would be held on
April 27 or 28.
The team also discussed a


possible turning lane for the
First, Federal Savings Bank
on U'S. 90 \Vest, and adjust-
ing the timing of the traffic
light at Marion Avenue.
Various road construction
projects were discussed as
well.
. Gina Busscher. public
information director for the
Florida Department of
Transportation, said State
Road 47 is the only state road
in Columbia County current-
ly under construction.
Four-laning the road is
ongoing, and parts of inter-
secting roads will be affected
in the near future.
Bascom Norris Drive may
be closed Saturday or
Sunday or next weekend so
construction crews can work
on utilities in the area.

County to honor retirees on Arbor Day


Fronmi staff re rS

. For Florida Arbor Day'
Friday, the city will honor two
recent retirees from local gov-
ernment who were instru-
mental in the beautification of
Lake City and Columbia
County.
At 10 a.m., Friday at the
entrance to the, Columbia
Youth Soccer Association
fields in the Southside Sports
Complex off Ballpark Glen, a
ceremony will be held to plant
two trees dedicated to James
Montgomery and Bettye


Lane.
Montgomery taught in
local schools for about 44
years' and served on the
Board of Columbia County
Commissioners for a non-con-
secutive total of 28 years
before deciding to not seek
re-election in 2004 and retire
from public office. During his
tenure on the commission he
often used discretionary
funds to help with beautifica-
tion efforts in and around
Lake City.
He also served and con-
tinues to serve on the city's


Beautification Committee and
volunteers his time to help
maintain landscaping on the
city and county's public lands.
Lane is also a former edu-
*cator in Columbia County
schools for 34 years before
retiring and spending eight
years on the City Council.
As the first woman on the
council, Lane helped to build
the Beautification Committee
and remains its chairman.
Through her efforts several
beautification projects were
completed, such as the plant-
ing of crape myrtles along,


U.S. 90 East and West, as well
as U.S. 441, South.
Lane also sawjthat the city
achieved and maintained
'Tree City USA" status from
the National Arbor Day
Foundation.'
To help receive that recog-
nition she created an annual
tree give-away for National
Arbor Day, which has been
ever-growing in popularity.
The event allows county resi-
dents to receive two free trees
of their choice from a variety
of offerings, such as crape
myrtle and dogwood.

TRAVEL
Continued from page 1A

Services Steering Committee
of the National Association of
Counties about five months
ago.
Following the trip, Flinn
requisitioned checks for a total
of about $1,300 for trip expens-
es.
Even though Columbia
County doesn't have a travel
policy requiring commission-
ers to get pre-approval for tra\-
el expensee, Flinn's decision
to requisition the checks drew


criticism from several resi-
dents, as well as local media
outlets.
Despite discussions about a
possible travel policy during
board meetings, several com-
missioners described the
potential policy as a "knee-
jerk" reaction to newspaper
reports.
Officials decided to discuss
the concept in a workshop
after reviewing what other
counties of similar size used to
govern travel for commission-

Dale. Williams, Columbia
County manager, said he has


no idea how long the work-,
shop will last or where the dis-
cussion will lead.
"I personally don't expect it
to be a lengthy workshop," he
said.
He said he expects the
board to see whether a majori-
ty of the commissioners want
to discuss the possibility of
having a travel policy.
"We've already done some
research as far as counties in
the area and what they're
doing and we'll give that infor-
mation to the board,", Williani
said. "Uintil we meet, -we don't
know what the next step will


be."
Unlike a regular meeting,
the board is not required to
seek input from the public.
However, the board cannot
make its final ruling during a
workshop and must adopt or
approve county policy during a
county commission meeting.
'They can talk about the
parameters, procedures and
what they would like to see ...
but they can't take final action
on it in a workshop," Williams
said. "Because it's a workshop,
they'll have to wait and ratify
whatever decision they make
in a regular board meeting."

but Vowell denied stealing it,
according to the report.
When Dean reported the
company vehicle's tag num-
ber to the Sheriff's Office, he
was told the truck had been
towed because it was found
wrecked in a ditch near U.S.
41 North and Scarborough
Lane.
According to the report,


Johnson said he wanted to
pursue charges against who-
ever stole the vehicle and told
officers that Vowell was pos-
sibly at his father's house on
Scarborough Lane.
On Sunday, deputies went
to the home -of Vowell's
father, and found Vowell hid-
ing in a bedroom closet.
Vowell 'remains in
Columbia County Jail under a
$7,500 bond.
A ,date, for extradition has
not yet been arranged.

millionaire behind," said
Senate Democratic Leader Pro
Tern Skip Campbell of
Tamarac.
The budget proposal
includes $14.7 billion for
Medicaid, the mammoth fed-
eral-state health care program
that pays for most of the nurs-
ing home care in the state and
basic medical services for
some poor families.
But Bush also sent a warn-
ing about that program's
growth, which is threatening
to eat up the whole health care
budget.
He proposed cutting the
Medically Needy program,
which helps people who don't
qualify for Medicaid because
of their income but can't get
private insurance because of
their health.
Bush said choices like cut-
ting the program would be the
norm if Medicaid isn't reined
'in.
He wants the Legislature to
overhaul Medicaid to try and
contain its cost.
The Medically Needy pro-
granm pays for hospital cover-
age and doctor visits for more
than 30,000 people with cata-
strophic illnesses, such as can-
cer or multiple sclerosis, or
organ transplants.
Under Bush's proposal, hos-
pitalization would no longer be
covered, although prescrip-
tion drugs would.
Bush said "there's a good
chance" the Legislature will be
able to find money to fund the
program, but warned that pay-
ing for such programs was
contingent on stopping the
growth in Medicaid.
"If we just fund Medicaid
without making any effort to
reform it, I think we're going
to have a bigger hole next
year," Bush said.
If the Medically Needy pro-
gram is cut, someone else will
have to pay for hospital costs
for people who need it, said
Sen. Durell Peaden, R-
Crestview, who chairs the


health care budget committee.
"Hopefully, there will be
some plan they fit into,"
Peaden said.
Karen Woodall, who lobbies
for the poor before the
Legislature, said advocates
have been fighting cuts to the
program for several years and
will do so again.
"We're very disappointed
and think it's rather a tragedy
and rather cruel, actually, to
send 36,000 people into a
panic, once again, as we play
political football with their
lives."
Campbell criticized cutting
the program, along with help-
ing pay for college education
with a 5 percent tuition
increase for community col-
lege students and 7.5 percent
for in-state undergraduates.
He said it would "help pay
for yet another round of tax
cuts for Floridians with aver-
age assets of at least $1.2 mil-
lion."
Bush's proposal earmarks
nearly half of the $1.1 billion
new education money for class
size-reduction, a constitutional
mandate that Bush continues
to oppose.
He said the money would be
better spent on teacher pay..
Bush also called for a $43
million increase in reading ini-
tiatives, which would total
$186 million, and $400 million
on universal prekindergarten,
which must open in August.
Bush and the Legislature
will have more than $4 billion
extra to spend over the next
couple years thanks to an
economy boosted by an
expected jump in sales tax col-
lections spurred by the
rebuilding effort following
Hurricanes Charley, Frances,
Ivan and Jeanne, which hit in
August and September.
Tourism-dependent Florida
has also seen an increase in
visitors since a devastating
drop after the 2001 terrorist
attacks, helped in part by a
weak dollar that makes the
exchange rate favorable for
European visitors and a
renewed confidence in the
safety of air travel.

falls, Indians win
By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter.com

The Columbia High boys
soccer team was cruising to a
5-0 win over Paxon School on
Tuesday night when a fight
broke out near midfield.
There were 13 minutes left
in the game when a Paxon
player, who Columbia players
said had been riding the
Tigers' Chris Mullen all
game, took matters into his
own hands and instigated a
fight. Mullen tried to get,
away. 'but he was leveled by,
another Paxon player. Both'
benches cleared before order
was restored. Mullen and the
two Paxon players were given
direct red cards for "violent
misconduct," and the FHSAA
will decide the length each
player will be out for.
"I'm not mad at Chris,"
Tigers coach Dale Hermann
said. "I'm mad at the fact we
got a red card. We worked
really hard to avoid them all
season long."
Hermann went on to say
that he understood that
Mullen had to defend himself
in a situation in which two


players went after him, and he
hopes his player will not be
lost for the season.
He also said that if the ref-
erees had exerted more con-
trol, perhaps the situation
could have been avoided.
"It was a 5-0 blowout,"
Hermann n
said. "If the
refs had
control to
begin with, 'rGER
none of this
would have
happened."
T h e
Tigers dominated on the field,
as they scored four goals in
the first half. Matt and Marcus
Rowan, O'Shaun Curinton and
Nic Nyssen all scored. Nyssen
added his second goal of the
game on a header off a corner
kick early in the second half.
"I thought we played good,"
Nyssen said. "We passed the
ball around enough. It was a
good effort by the whole
team."
It was also an effort that
clinched third place in the dis-
trict for Columbia: At 6-4-2,
the Tigers finished just one
loss behind second-place
Middleburg High. Fleming
Island High won the regular
season district title. '

FORT WHITE Round 2
of Fort White High's two-"
game set with Dixie County
High in girls basketball again
went to the Bears, this time in
a 50-10 win on Tuesday night.
The Lady Indians got off to
a fast start, as Laura Barnes
hit back-to-back three-pointers
to stake her team to a 6-0 lead.
"I thought, 'Oh my gosh,
you're doing good tonight,'"


Barnes said about hitting her
threes.
Barnes hoisted a team-high
11 shots and finished with
seven points against Dixie,
which is something Lady
Indians coach Demetric Jack-
son has been trying to im-
press upon her.
"I try to (shoot inore)," she
said.
"But sometimes it slips my
mind when we're in the open
court."
Dixie rallied behind guard


Vanessa Hollis, who often had
open running lanes to the bas-
ket and spear-headed a turn-

take a 34-9 halftime lead.
Hollis finished with a game-
high 15 points.

talks to the team before its 50-10 loss on Tuesday.


The second time around


Danny Green has a
new perspective on
his return to CHS

By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com

New surroundings ,offer
new perspectives, and Danny
Green was on the outside
looking in at Columbia High
football.
Green has been submitted
as the head coach at CHS and
the Columbia County School
Board will take up the recom-
mendation at its meeting on
Tuesday.
Green coached at Columbia
from 1995-2003, then left for a
job as offensive coordinator at
Coffee County High in Doug-
las, Ga. Green was recruited
for the job by Coffee County
head coach Bonwell Royal.
A long-time head coach at
Coffee County, Royal retired
and was brought back after
several years .to rebuild the
program. Royal was to tufrn
the program over .to Green
after one year, and he did step
-down.
"If this situation hadn't
evolved like it did, I would
have stepped in," Green said
Monday.
"Circumstances being what
they were with (wife) Pam still
here, I had a lot of interest in
coming back and am happy
this has worked out. It was
extremely 'hard on my wife. I
was living with my son, but we
all kind of left her."
Green began as a head
coach at Baker County High
in 1981. After 10 years, he
moved to Haines City High

for two years then returned to
Baker County in 1993 before
taking over at Columbia.
"Maybe there are parallels
to that," Green said. "'I was
happy in Haines Cit,. but I did
not want to raise my family
there. After going. back, I
probably would have never.
left Baker County for any job
but Columbia High. After Bill
(Castle) turned it down and
the interest turned to me,
Columbia was 6A and I had
been on a level a little below
that.
"I felt like what I was hired
to do was take Columbia to

the next level, and I feel good
about that."
Green said he has taken
experiences from all the jobs.
"If is good to get out and


move around and .look at dif-
ferent situations," Green-said.
"You need to get out of your
comfort zone."
The application and inter-
view processes pointed up
concerns.
"I understand there are
some things I need to work on
and improve the way they
were done before," Green
said.
"Dealing with the Columbia
County agencies and me
being more involved than I
was before is not a problem
whatsoever. There is work I
need to do in other areas and


not just from a football
standpoint.
"These are things to be rec-
tified and move forward. I
look at it as a fresh start."
Green graduated from
Columbia, as did his wife and
sons, and that brings a special
feeling.
"I am very excited," Green
said. "I went to the stadium
and walked out. on the prac-
tice field, and it just felt good.
Old coaches know you make
no promises about winning,
but I do promise to work
extremely hard and put a
quality team on the field."

were not conducive to

Erti is the two-time defend-
ing champion in the event and
Young-Robyn and Panton-
Lewis finished 2-3 last year.
"We have a couple of girls
who seem to thrive on this
course," Widener said. '"The
top six or eight have quite a
lot of experience and, the way
the course is set up, nobody
shot themselves out of it.
"The greens are so good
that anybody that gets a hot
putter can put a good round
up."
The. 13-women field fea-
tures three international play-

England, Maria Gonzalez of
Brazil and Angie Tsai of
Brazil.

Rosemary to the recipe rescue


By SUSAN SLOAN
Special to the Reporter

Just when the kitchen herb
garden is looking its worst
due to the occasional hard
freezes we experience, the
hardy Rosemary plant
endures. Rosemary cultivars
have been developed that can
withstand, temperatures as
cold as 0 degrees F An ever-
green shrub originating in the
Mediterranean, Rosemary is
an aromatic herb that has a
robust pine-like scent. Its
needle-like leaves are used in
a variety of cuisines, including
Italian, Greek and French.
Throughout the years,
Rosemary has been the sym-
bol of remembrance and
fidelity, making it a common
. addition to ancient bridal bou-
quets and tussies (bouquets
given in the 1600 and 1700's
as gifts to express a specific
sentimental meaning).
Today, herbalists value
'Rosemary for its believed
impact on memory and con-
centration. It is' also believed
that its stimulant properties
increase liver function and aid
digestion.
However, because an
excessive consumption of
Rosemary can-be poisonous,
Rosemary is more often used
in salves and oils for relief
from rheumatism, arthritis,
and certain skin conditions
and to encourage hair growth.
Rosemary has a long history


of aromatherapy use as well. If an extended period, of
Rosemary was burned in hard freezes is predicted, you
French hospitals to fumigate might want to cover your
them, and in modern times, Rosemary plants. Rosemary
rosemary oil is valued as a prefers light, rather dry soil,
stimulating, invigorating which is common in the Lake
essential oil, used in bath and City area, and plenty of sun,
massage potions. mak -

Christmas this year
Rosemary plants shaped like
Christmas trees were widely
available in nurserie-, and
these plants can now be plant-
ed in the garden. It would be
advisable to wait until a spell
of warmer weather like we
just experienced is expected,
rather than exposing the plant
immediately to a hard freeze.
However, once established,
Rosemary can withstand a
hard freeze.


ing
it perfect for the beginner gar-
dener. For the non-gardener,
Rosemary is readily available
in its dry form in grocery
stores and fresh Rosemary is
often available as well.
For the barbeque, fresh wet
Rosemary placed on the hot
coals and/or the grate adds a
nice smoky flavor to turkey or
pork, without the need for


basting.
Another use is a "barbeque
brush" to use as a basting
brush. Because Rosemary
has a nice stiff stem, sprigs of
rosemary tied to the handle
end of a wooden spoon, make
an aromatic brush to apply
your barbeque sauce or mari-
nade that %will impart the
flavor of rosemary as
the leaves are
