deaths spark


concern for


local youth


Officials urge parents
to look for warning
signs from teenagers.
By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.com
A string of self-inflicted
hanging deaths involving mid-
dle school boys in Brantord
has drawn the attention of
Columbia County school and
law enforcement officials.
They are hoping to protect
local youth from a similar fate.
Since November. three mid-
die school students ranging in
age from 12 to 14 in the small
Suwannee County community
of 700 have been found dead
in their own homes.
The most recent was last


week when 12-year-old Tevin
Dwayne Touchton was found'
in his bedroom, hanging from
a belt cinched around his
neck.
Suwannee County law
enforcement officials are call-
ing the deaths self-inflicted
hangings. However, they have
been unable to rule out
whether any of the deaths
were unintentionally caused
by self-asphyxiation. which
can create a euphoric feeling
as oxygen is cut off to the
brain.
"I can't say that it was or
wasn't self-asphyxiation," said
Ron Colvin, chief deputy sher-
iff for the Suwannee County
Sheriff's Office.

County

to pass

travel

policy
Commissioners still
debating on details;
vote is weeks away
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.corn
Columbia County is expect-
ed to have its first travel policy'
for commissioners within the;
next month, but officials are-
still uncertain what the policy'
will entail.
Wednesday night during a
special workshop, commis-,
sioners reached a consensus,
and decided to create a travel:
policy.
Commissioners have:
reached an agreement that,
the proposed policy would,
mirror state statutes 112.061t
for per diem and travel
expenses of public officers,
employees and authorized
persons.
However,, commissioners
were unable to agree on the
wordiir ..,f tti-_ prupo-,erd local
legislation, and have asked
staff members and Marlin
Feagle. county attorney, to
develop two travel policies for
review and possible adoption
at the Feb. 1 meeting.
Commissioner Ron
Williams said commissioners
should have all their travel
pre-apprbved on the consent
agenda. His opinion, however,
wasn't shared by all commis-
sioners.
"The board should approve
all travel, mandatory or not,"
he said.
Commissioner Dewey
Weaver said there should be
some accountability for com-
missioners traveling.
"The board should have the
opportunity to vote on it one
way or another," Weaver said.
"It's spending funds and it
should be a board decision."
Commission Chairwoman
Jennifer Flinn, who during a
survey at the beginning of the
meeting said she didn't favor a
travel policy, claims she was
now in favor of a travel policy
that didn't restrict commis-
sioner travel.

Spelling



out success

C congratulations to Alyssa Bolter,
Columbia County's newest
spelling bee champion, The 13-
year-old Lake City Middle
School seventh grader earned
the title after 12 round's of word barrages
Tuesday il the local contest.
C-o-n-s-f-a-b-l-e.
She rattled off the correct spelling of the
word x-ithout hesitation, drawing applause,
from the crowd of onlookers.
Spelling is no easy task, even though
this teenager made it look relatively easy.
We know it's a difficult skill to master. You
know it is, too, and you remind us of our
responsibility frequently when we drop the
ball and make a goof.
In today's age, sometimes more news is
printed and broadcast about the bad things
kids do. but it's great to have the opportu-
nity to print a positive story about a stu-
Tdent with high academic standards.
"In the bag" is how Bolter described the
contest when she heard the word that gave
her the title. She knew how to spell "con-
stable." She had prepared for the contest.
She had done her homework.
Spelling is the foundation for a well-
rounded person.
-It leads to good reading skills and pro-
motes strong written communication.
It's an age-old part of education in this
country from the days of the onie-room. ,
school to the modern Internet-driven uni-
versity classroom. It's important in every-
day life.
It's good to see the skill of spelling, pre-
served and promoted at the county level. A
pat on the back goes to all of those stu-
dents who took the time to study and who
qualified for the spelling bee.


Today is Thursday, Jan. 20, the 20th day,
of 2005. There are 345 .days left in the year.

Today's Highlight

On this date
In 1801, John Marshall was appointed
chief justice of the United States.
In 1841, the island of Hong Kong was,
ceded to Great Britain. (It returned to
Chinese control in July 1997.)
In 1887, the U.S. Senate approved an
agreement to lease Pearl Harbor in
Hawaii as a naval base. "
In 1942, Nazi officials held the notori-
ous Wannsee conference, during which

Letters need
follow-up

Both letter writers in the
letters to the editor section on
Jan. 14 deserve follow up com-
ments.
The letter on Iraq was
excellent, however, the analo-
gies and common sense
approach you espouse are far
above the thinking of some
folks. Have you forgotten the
screaming to the world by lib-'
erals that our president invad-


ed Iraq for oil? That the U.S.
invasion was for occupation
instead of liberation? How
dare you insinuate the people
we liberated help pay their
own way. Can anybody imag-
ine the scrutiny, accusations
and blame America rhetoric
by liberals that would follow
with every dollar involved in
'the repayment? Of course,
you are correct and the Iraqis
should pay for their freedom,
but let's not let good judgment
and logic get ahead of liberal
politics..


The Reporter may be up to
old tricks if anybody knew
what is being talked about. I
realize I barely made the I.Q.
level to understand, but I
don't get it. I generally read
two newspapers every day but
I must have missed some-
thing.
Anyhow, if this letter con-
demning the Reporter is
meant to be personal perhaps
one should simply make a per-
sonal phone call.

"We have been greatly
affected," said Jeremy Cary,
manager at Farm House
Tomatoes in Live Oak. "The
four hurricanes and two
tropical storms took roofs
off of three of our 20 green-
houses."
The facility lost 12,000
plants due to extreme winds
and contamination from
standing water.
Farm House Tomatoes'
biggest challenge has been
catching up after its loss to
produce enough tomatoes to
meet the demands of high-
end restaurants, chefs, and
small produce stands,
Even with three locations
including one in Lake Worth


and another in Tennessee,
meeting the demand has
been difficult.
"Nobody's able to keep
up," Cary said. "The
demand is outrageous
because a lot of these go
overseas because while we
were dealing with hurri-
canes, China and Japan
were hit with their mon-
soons."
Unlike the skyrocketing
prices of field tomatoes,
Farm House Tomatoes have
kept their prices fairly con-
sistent, charging $30 to $40
for 10-pound boxes contain-
ing three varieties of the
fruit.
The difference is that
field tomatoes are grown
outside in dirt, and Farm
House Tomatoes grows its
fruit in climate-controlled
greenhouses.
Prior to the hurricane sea-
son, Farm House Tomatoes
was looking to expand, to


locations in Pennsylvania
and California.
After the hurricanes hit,
the money just wasn't there.
Even with a small contribu-
tion from FEMA, the compa-
ny was barely making ends.
meet, Cary said.
"Our main goal now is to
get out of debt and get the
product out there to our cus-
tomers," Cary said.
James Turner, owner of
Turner's Produce in
Wellborn, has been more
lucky.
"Fortunately we didn't
have a lot of damage, except
for some power outages," he
said. "I think the power was
out longer in my home than
it was in my business."
Turner receives ship-
ments of his field tomatoes
from South Florida and sells
them to area restaurants.
Right after the hurricane,
Turner saw prices of $50 to
$60 for a 25-pound box of


tomatoes.
"At 'that time, I tried to
keep my prices as low as
possible, just enough to
break even, he said.
Now prices have come
back down to $15 to $16 a
box, Turner said.
KC's Produce owner
Charles Neeley said that his
tomato prices are back to
normal and he is making
more business than before.
"Since the tomatoes are
now back to normal, my
business has increased
three times what it usually
is this time of year," he said.
Neeley sells his tomatoes
89 cents a pound or $14.50
per 20-pound box.
"During the hurricane
season, I saw prices as high
as $70 a box and since so
many people were doing
without tomatoes for so
long, I guess they are mak-
ing up for it now," Neeley
said.


Local officials continue considering county-wide fire rate


"By JUSTIN LANG
' lang@lakecityreporter.com
City and council officials
Itook another step forward
Wednesday in deciding
!whether two local govern-
'ments will work as team to
'pay for county-wide fire serv-
ices.
i During a joint city/county
IFire Committee meeting
Wednesday, it was decided
that City Manger Joe Cone
|and County Manager Dale
!Williams would finalize a
,plan with input from elect-
id officials to submit to
rihe consulting 'firm,
:GC-oe rnm-ent Services Group
:(GSG) of rallahassee, for
,studying a county-wide fire
'assessment and operating
budget.
Both the county commis-
sion and city council have
previously agreed to work
with the GSG to determine a
county-wide-assessment rate.
Currently. city residents and
county residents pay differ-
ent amounts.
The study would help
establish what the rate would
be, by factoring in additional
costs, such as another full-
time fire station outside of
Lake City, including such


items as new equipment, fire-
fighter salaries and insurance
costs.
County Commissioner Ron
Williams said Columbia City
is an ideal location for anoth-
er manned fire station in the
county and would help fire-
fighters reach areas like Fort
White faster.
Currently, the Lake City
Fire Department must travel
from the center of Lake City
to calls in south Columbia
County and relies on help
from volunteer fire depart-
ments, which do not always
have personnel available.
Putting another full-time
department in the south end
of the county, Williams said,
would "sort of be a no-brain-
er in a sense."
After that, he said a station
west of Lake City may also
be necessary.
However, members of
council have expressed con-
cern about assessing a coun-
ty-wide rate for fire services
if it means city residents
would have to pay substan-
tially more than, they do
already at $55 per parcel for
single-family residential
property.
Both the city and county's
elected officials have said

Dental Talk
by
Dr. RobertJ. Harvey






752-2236
Q. My husband has a white patch on the inside of his
cheek. It won't go away. What is it?
A. A general white area in the mouth is referred to as
leukoplakia. It can be caused by various factors the
most common being tobacco use (chew, snuff or smok-
ing), a yeast infection, or vitamin deficiencies. The con-
cern is that up to 36% can mutate and become cancer-
ous. Possible treatments would include stopping the
use of tobacco in any form, increase vitamins A, B, C
and E individually (rather than in the form of a multi
vitamin), using chemical agents on the area and sur-
gery. If the white patch does not go away consult with
your dentist immediately. It is important to determine,
the cause and eliminate the leukoplakia before serious
problems can occur. If you have questions on leuko-
plakia or any other dental subjects, please feel free to
give us a call at Aspen Dental Group 752-2336.

POLICY
Continued from page 1A

She wanted the wording in
the new policy to ensure com-
missioners could attend their
mandatory meetings.
Commissioner Elizabeth
Porter said she favored travel
outside Columbia County for
commissioners networking
and lobbying for the county.
However, she noted she was-
n't in favor of a policy that pre-
vented commissioners from
attending. mandatory confer-
ences or board meetings.
"I'm not opposed to a travel
policy, and since we don't


have any good examples to go
by, we need to make some
provisions of our own," Porter
said.
As it stands, Feagle has
been given the task of devel-
oping two policies that could
become the county's first trav-
el policy for commissioners.
One policy will suggest
approval of all travel on the
consent agenda, while, the
other will contain wording for
commissioners to attend
mandatory events where trav-
el is unavoidable.
Both policies will have state
statute requirements as part
of the new county travel poli-
cy.


DEATHS
Continued from page 1A

Colvin said the SCSO has
not found enough evidence to
support whether the Branford
deaths were teenage thrill-
seeking gone wrong.
Regardless, local school
administrators, counselors
and law enforcement officials
have begun discussing how
they can educate parents and
students about self-asphyxia-
tion and the dangers associat-
ed with it.
"Parents and the community
as a whole need to be aware
about what is going on," said
Gloria Spivey, Safe and Drug
Free Schools coordinator for
Columbia County.
Last Friday, the events in
Branford were discussed by
the county's school coun selors
at their, monthly meeting.
Spivey met with local law
enforcement Tuesday.
Spivey said school adminis-
trators 'and law enforcenient
have not, had any reported
cases: of students engaging in
self-asphyxiation, commonly
called'"blackout."
Still, she said it is important
for parents;, .schools' and law
enforcement to educate them-
selves about the practice and
discu'is how to prevent it from
happening.
"Mostl,. it is middle-school-
aged. young people that hare
adding. this.. so that has. helped


us to pinpoint it and do some
work in the middle schools,"
Spivey said.
Spivey said middle school
principals and counselors are
being made aware to be on the
lookout.
For parents, she said, "one
thing they can be aware of is. to
look around their child's neck"
for bruising or marks that may
show they have been inten-
tionally choking themselves.
'They\ could actually be. par-,
ticipating in this and (the par-
ents) not know it," Spivey said..
'That is one way ,the parents
can stay on top of that."
Keith Hatcher. principal of
Fort White High' School
(which also houses 'middle
school students and' is\~about
15 miles from Branford). said
his faculty and staff are' being
instriicted to be aware of any
students who may be involved
in self-asphyxiation.
He said it is' important for
piare-nts and schools to be,
,aware of the practice, but care
ful to not entice students to'
try self-asphyxiation by sensa-
tionalizing it.
Hatcher said what hap-
pened in Branford' "makes
you realize it could happen
here too," but "you have to be
careful how you approach it."
S"If it's not handled properly
it could kind of get that
curiosity up and get people to
tr\y sFe of the same things."
he -.aid. "We have to take on
the conver-ratiori as. they


come to us."
"We are kind of keeping a
heads up," he added.
Capt. Gary Laxton, public
information officer for the
Lake City Police Department,
said in his 31-year career, he
has heard of several types .of
self-asphyxiation, but.not with-
in Lake. City, especially in mid-
dle schools.
"I'm not aware of this going
on within the city, but that's
not to say it's not happening,"
'he said.
"It's frightening to think that
there is anyone experimenting
with this type of activity."
The police department has a
school resource officer, at
Richardson Middle School
that Laxton said would be
available to educate students
about the dangers of self-
asphyxiation.
Maj. Mark Hunter,
Columbia County undersheriff
said the sheriff's office plans
to keep its nine school
"resource officers mindful of


self-asphyxiation and may con-
sider awareness classes for
students to discuss that and
other issues they face.
Bill Slattery, child and ado-
lescent therapist with
Meridian Behavioral Health
in Live Oak, said to under-
stand why teenagers may
seek out dangerous behavior
like self-asphyxiation or use
hanging as a method of sui-
cide, "you have to understand
the population you are deal-
ing with."
Slattery said teenagers
often feel invincible and think
nothing will happen to them,
but at the same time "adoles-
cents are very idealistic so
when something doesn't go
their way, they can be very
despondent."
'They are under a lot of
pressure," he said.
"Whoever said those are
the best years of your life was
obviously not a teenager."
. Slattery Was scheduled to
speak to parents and teach-

ers at Branford High School
Wednesday night about how
to recognize potentially dan-
gerous behavior in teenagers.
As a teenager undergoes
rapid physical and social
changes, he said many have a
hard time coping with both
those stresses and the added
responsibility of academics.
"It's also a time when chil-
dren are striving to be inde-
pendent, yet we put a limit on
that, and that creates a lot of
discord," Slattery said.
Over the course of adoles-
cence, he said teenagers will


often "try a lot of things, and
they don't think anything will
ever happen to them," so "they
will often do a lot of experi-
menting with very dangerous
things."
Slattery said parents should
always be aware of rapid
changes in their child's behav-
ior, whether it be going from
usually happy to suddenly
very depressed or vice versa.
While self-asphyxiation. can
be risky teenage behavior or a
method used to attempt sui-
cide, either way, it signals a
child in need of help.

LAKE CITY REPORTER, THURSDAY, JANUARY 20, 2005


Two wrecks occurred Wednesday on same road


No life-threatening
injuries were
sustained in wrecks.

By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter.com

Two unrelated car wrecks
took place on County Road 245
minutes apart late Wednesday
afternoon.
Just before 4 p.m., Casey I.
Amerson was driving her


1999 silver Chevrolet
Silverado when it collided
with a maroon minivan driv-
en by John M. Noel.
Amerson had been driving
behind a school bus on CR
245 when she attempted to
make a left turn onto State
Road 100.
Amerson said she didn't
see the minivan before mak-
ing her turn.
Amerson was determined
to be at fault and was issued a


citation, according to a
Florida Highway Patrol
trooper who responded to the
accident.
Injuries were minor and no
one was taken to the hospital.
Roughly a mile down CR
245 from the first collision, a
second .wreck occurred
around 4:15 p.m.
A vehicle overturned next
to a field off CR 245 and the
female driver had to be airlift-
ed to Shands Hospital in


Jacksonville.
A male passenger did not
suffer serious injuries.
Florida Highway Patrol
Trooper David Ortiz, who
responded to the wreck, said
it was unknown at the time if
another car was involved or
what caused the wreck,
because the driver was not
able to be interviewed.
He said she was incapaci-
tated, but her injuries were
not life threatening.


Casey 1. Amerson's silver 1999 Chevy Silverado is towed
away after a collision with John M. Noel's maroon minivan.
The wreck occurred at 3:55 p.m. Wednesday at the
intersection of State Road 100 and County Road 245 for a
short while.

City Middle School.
Bolter said she practiced an
hour each day for about a
week prior to the event.
"Now that I've won, I want to
win the next [contest] and go
to nationals," she said.
Wednesday's win was the
first time Bolter has captured
the county spelling crown, but
she was her school's top
speller last year when she
competed in the county-wide
contest.
Tom Dorsett, Lake City
Middle School principal, said
he knew Bolter came pre-
pared.
"We're very proud of
Alyssa," he said. "She did an
outstanding job and didn't
miss a beat. She was very con-
fident in what she spelled and
we are very proud of her."
Dorsett said Bolter has had
good teachers in the past and
she could hear the phonics of
the words. He attributed
those tools to her win.
Bolter, 13, said she plans to

Vision Today







by Reaves C. Cole, Q.D.
Board Certified Optometric Physician
A COORDINATED
EFFORT
For proper vision, the eyes must work
as a team. While each of the eyes sees a
slightly different image, the brain -blends
these two images together into one three-
dimensional picture. Because the images
seen by each eye must be virtually the
same, a person usually compensates for
poor eye muscle control by subcon-
sciously exerting extra effort to maintain
proper eye alignment. In more severe
cases, the muscles cannot adjust the eyes,
resulting in double vision. Since the brain
will try to avoid seeing double, it
eventually learns to ignore the image sent
by one eye. This is amblyopia, or "lazy
eye". Periodic eye examinations,
beginning at age six months, are
recommended to determine eye coordina-
tion.
Amblyopia is called lazy eye because
one eye stops functioning properly. The
eye-brain connection in the non-
functioning eye is very poor and the brain
ignores or suppresses most of its signals
in order to make sense of what is seen.
Amblyopia can make it harder to read,
catch a ball, or park a car. Parents who
notice an unusual eye turn or a wandering
eye in a child should schedule an eye
exam. Call LAKE CITY EYE
PHYSICIANS at (386) 754-6616 to
schedule an eye exam. As a full-service
institution, we utilize the latest scientific
and technological advances to provide
our-patients with the highest quality eye
care. We are located at 621 SW Baya Dr.,
Suite 101.
P.S. Some symptoms that may be
indicative of poor eye coordination
include double vision, headaches, eye
and body fatigue, irritability, dizziness,
and difficulty in reading and concentrat-
ing.


practice even harder for the
state championship in
Jacksonville.
"My secret to being a good
speller is taking a breath and
taking my time and that's
what I did and reading," she
said. "I got nervous, but once I
got started, I was OK"
Carol Agness, Columbia
County spelling bee coordina-
tor and reading :coach at
Westside Elementary School,
said the county has held the
spelling competition for the
past 20 years.
"This year we went further
into the spelling list that we've
ever gone before," she said.
"We went to round 12 before
we had a final winner, and the
words were getting very diffi-
cult."
Agness said she believes the
students are spending more
time preparing for the contests,
and the schools are teaching
them how to find the correct
spelling through phonics.


This year's spelling bee had
fifth, sixth and seventh grade
participants from 11 county
public schools as well as two
participants from private
schools in the county.
The contest started with the
word "scramble" in the first
round and by the seventh
round, there were only four
contestants left.
The four spellers worked
their magic through 12 rounds.
The contest came down to
Columbia City Elementary's
Colby Thomas and Bolter. The
word "constable" was the
deciding factor.
When Thomas misspelled
his word and left the title in
Bolter's hands with "consta-
ble," Bolter said she could'feel
the win in her grasp.
"I was like, 'Oh my gosh! I
got this in the bag.' That's
exactly what I thought," she
said. "I knew how to spell that
word."

FSU hoops

makes noise

As a Florida
State alumnus,
it was good to
see two posi-
tive results on
the hardwood instead of
the gridiron for a change.
On Wednesday night, the
Seminoles overcame a sea-
son of inconsistency with a
91-83 overtime win over for-
merly once-beaten, third-
ranked Wake Forest in
Tallahassee.
It was the biggest win for
FSU since topping Duke 75-
70 at home a season ago,
and it lifted the 'Noles to
sixth in the conference -
ahead of Maryland and
N.C. State.
Speaking of the Devils,
they are Florida State's
next opponents on Saturday
at home.
Could it be two straight
wins over top-five teams in
the conference?
The other surprising
development in FSU bas-
ketball has been the re-
emergence of Bob (don't
call him Bobby) Sura in
Houston. Sura has been
starting alongside Tracy
McGrady in the Rockets'
backcourt and he has blos-
somed in this, his ninth
season.
Last Thursday, the ex-
FSU star set a career high
with 35 points and six
three-point field goals in a
94-85 overtime win over the
New Jersey Nets. He may
have finally found a home
in Houston. It also brings
me to my token Bobby
Sura story from my college
days.
It was probably my junior
year when my friends and I
decided to go to Leach
Center to play some pickup
basketball, as we some-
times did. Usually FSU foot-
ball and basketball players
were on the courts, guys
like former wide receiver
Andre Cooper (who was
Mr. Basketball in Florida),
'Noles center Andre Reid
and Lamarr Greer.
I remember we headed
to the far court since the,
near one was packed.
There were two guys there
who were already launch-
ing shots from halfcourt
no less. One was Sura, and
the other was Seminoles'
starting point guard Scott
Shepherd.
Sura ended up on our
team, and he quickly
showed me the difference
between a Division I-A play-
er and a regular college stu-
dent like myself.
Once as he was get-
ting position for a rebound
Sura brushed me off like
a fly, and I was his
teammate.
Sura also threw me a bul-
let pass that was so hard it
nearly broke my thumb.
Luckily, I was able to gath-
er the ball and in one
motion bat it to my friend
for a layup.
When two new players
joined the game on the
opposing team, they put on
a dunking exhibition, and
that's where our contest
came to an end. Sura decid-
ed to one-up their act and
he flew to the basket on
every possession for a
dunk.
Needless to say, I realized
that day that it was a good
thing I was going into writ-
ing about sports and not
playing them for a living.

Wrestling to honor seniors


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter. com

Columbia High wrestlers
will be in action for at least
another month, but today is
the last time to see them at
home. The Tigers host
Lincoln High at 6:30 p.m.
For the final home match,
Columbia will honor its sen-
iors Caleb Allen, Adam
Crumitie, Josh Davis, Kurt
Frazier and Justin Roberts.
"We will introduce our sen-
iors and parents, walk them
out 'to the middle of the mat,
and then make a presentation
to their moms." CHS head
coach Al Nelson said.


Columbia won its first four
dual matches, but this will be
the first one against a District
2-2A opponent. To add to the
signifi-
can c e ,
Lincoln is
three-time (br" GEs
defending
champion

that have CHS vs. Lincoln
included 6:30 p.m.

This at Columbia
match is
m o r e
important because it will give,
the kids an idea of what
Lincoln is like," Nelson said.


"They are tough from top to
bottom."
Columbia's top point scor-
ers through the weekend are,
Greg Poole (15-4 record, 37.5
points), Brady Dicks (14-4,
37), Matt Bohannon (12-5,

Dahlbeck (7-4, 30), Bryan
Huggins (8-5, 28), Roberts

Going for a rare double


Wolves' hoops teams vie for conference title


By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter.com

Richardson Middle School basket-
ball is on the verge of a rare feat.
On Monday, the girls will play
Fernandina Beach High for the
Florida Crown Conference Champio-
nship at Fernandina Beach.
The boys will also travel to
Fernandina to play Lake City Middle
School on the same night in their
championship game.,
This is the second straight
championship game for e
Lady Wolves coach Sue
Ebert, who is in her third
year at the school. Richard- ,
son lost the title game last \
year to Lake City.
"I feel real good about it,"
Ebert:,said,,. "They -beat us one time,
and we beat them the other."
The Richardson girls are 10-2 this
year, and they already avenged their
other previous loss by beating Lake
City 45-31 to advance to this champi-
onship game.
The key player for the Lady Wolves
is seventh-grade point guard Shar-
mayne Edwards, a player Ebert
thought so highly of that she gave her
the same number Ebert wore when
she was a high school Hall-of-Fame
player in Kentucky, 20.
"It made me feel good," Edwards
said.
Ebert gave Edwards the number
because, "She's the whole package.
She can break pressure, shoot the 3."
Edwards said her duty in Monday's
game was "stopping their best shoot-
er and playing together (as a team)."
Ebert also said her post players,
Tyesha Gibson and Deandrea
Edwards, were going to have to block
people out in order for the girls to
win.
Gibson was confident about her
team's chances going into Monday.
"I feel good. I feel real good," she


Young-Robyn,

Ertl tied at

Senior Qualifier

From staff reports *

Sue Ertl and Kathryn Young-Robyn were
tied for the lead at the Women's Senior
Qualifying. Tournament at Southern Oaks
Golf Club on Wednesday.
Young-Robyn rallied from a one-shot
deficit on Tuesday to shoot a 72 and finish
with a 141. DeeDee Lasker remained in
third place after shooting a 72 to finish with
a 145.
Catherine Panton-Lewis was fourth after
shooting a 73-75-148, and Angie Tsai was
sixth with a 75-74-149.
Rounding out the rest of the competi-
tors was: Maria Gonzalez (75-76-151), Kay
Kennedy (77-76-153), Cindy Miller (77-77-
154), Dixie Eckes (83-74-157), Marjorie
Jones (84-74-158), Erin Szekely (82-79-
161), Pearlie Crayton (84-80-164) and
Paula Pearson-Tucker (85-83-168).
Crayton and Pearson-Tucker will be the
first group to tee off at 9 a.m., followed by
Jones and Szekely (9:10), Kennedy, Miller
and Eckes (9:20), Panton-Lewis, Tsai and
Gonzalez (9:30) arid Ertl, Young-Robyn
and Lasker (9:40).,"


said.
While the girls are in rarefied air
for the second straight year, champi-
onship play has become old hat for
the boys.
Coach Joey O'Neal has piloted his
team to the title game for the fourth
straight year. The Wolves lost in 2002
and 2003. by a single point, then cap-
tured the championship last year with
a win over Lake City. Now, they go for
a repeat with a team that is short on
experience but long on
talent
S "We depend on six or
t seven guys on the team,"
.". O'Neal said. "As a whole, we
win as a team."
The Wolves lost four play-
ers from last year's title
team, including current
Columbia High Kenny Williams. But behind return-
ing players like K.K. Staples,
Matthew Jerry and Alvin Jernigan,
the Wolves compiled a 12-1 record.
(The only loss was by one point to
Ulee Middle School.)
Point guard Staples led the team
with an average of 15 points per
game. Jerry and Sylvester Holley
each averaged 14, Jernigan 12 and
Lavoris Powell 11.
"It feels great," Staples said about
being in the title game a second
straight year. "Some teams aren't able
to do it."
For Jerry, who as an eighth-grader
will be playing his final game for the
orange and green, the chance to win
two straight was "just an' awesome
opportunity."
The power forward added that for
him to play well he would have to "be
physical down in the post. Play my
game."
The girls have an added caveat for
winning the title.
"The girls told me they want to
