The population of Lake

Local hotels and restau-

New travel

policy gets

mixed

reaction
Local businesss owners
say travel policy needed,
but disagree on wording.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia County's first
travel policy for county com-
missioners is receiving mixed
reviews by some of Lake
City's business leaders.
Tuesday, county officials
voted in, favor of enacting a
travel policy which didn't
restrict the travel of commis-
sioners attending mandatory
board meetings.
With the policy, all
allowances and expenditures
for commissioners must be
approved as a regular or con-
sent agenda item by a majority
vote. How ever, the policy con-
tained at least four exceptions;
designed not to restrict com-
missioner travel to mandatory
conference meetings.
Local reaction on the hew
policy has been mixed. Even
local car dealerships, who are
principal players in bringing
in tax revenue for the county,
are split on, whether the travel
policy is a good use of county
tax dollars.
' John Hopkins, owner of
Hopkins Motor Company,
said he doesn't see the travel
policy for county officials, as it
is currently written, as being a
bad use of tax dollars.
"Unless it's some commis-
sion off-the-wall that doesn't
have anything to do with gov-
ernment, I think people on the:
[county] commission should
participate," he said.
"If someone is on a commis-
sion like that, I think the other
commissioners should know
there is going to be some trav-
el 'involved and hopefully
they'll bring back some bacon.
or something for the city..
They've got enough stuff to

City county officials
recognize achievements
of black Americans.

By ASHLEY CISNEROS
acisneros@lakecityreporter. corn
Lake ,City Community
College held a proclamation
and resolution ceremony
Wednesday to officially
declare February as Black
History Month.
Lake City Mayor Ray
Kirkland and Jennifer Flinn,
chairwoman of the Columbia
County Board of County
Commissioners, spoke at the
event which took place at the
Learning Resource Center.
Barbara Anderson, dean of
student services, introduced
the speakers.
Kirkland urged the audi-
ence present to consider the
CALL US:

meaning and pride of the
proclamation's contents and
spoke of the countless record-
ed and unrecorded contribu-
tions of black Americans.
He noted that black
Americans\ were at the fore-
front of the Civil Rights move-
ment but also, many other
major progressive social
change movements in history.
Kirkland presented the
proclamation to Dr. Charles
W. Hall, LCCC president.
Hall commented that the
college seeks to celebrate
black history and culture "365
days a year."
Flinn presented Hall a reso-
lution from the Columbia
County Board of County
Commissioners also declaring
February as Black History
Month in the county.
Hall described several
examples of black contribu-
tors including Rosa Parks and


Martin Luther King Jr.
Flinn also shared a saying
she taught her own daughter
about having the courage to
go against the norms.
"I tell her, 'Any dead fish
can float downstream, but it
takes a strong fish to swim
upstream,'" she said.
h Flinn also referenced the
historic case Brown v. Board
of Education in 1954 concern-
ing the doctrine of separate.
but equal schools.
She mentioned that this
case was used in a 1971 case,
Pennsylvania Association for
Retarded Citizens v.
Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania, involving chil-
dren with Down's Syndrome
and their rights to equal edu-
cation at public expense.
In addition, Flinn described
how the 1954 case influenced
section 504 of the
Rehabilitation Act of 1973.


Ramon Lopez, vice presi-
dent of LCCC student govern-
ment, was surprised by the
amount of people who showed
up for the event.
"More students showed up
today than I expected," he
said. "It is important to
remember that the fight is not
over for black Americans or
members of other ethnic
groups like Hispanics, Asians
and Arabs."
The college will host sever-
al Black History Month
events throughout February.
"I have learned more about
my African-American culture
here at LCCC than I have in
my whole life due to classes
like my African-American lit-
erature class and programs
like these," said Mazy Bruise-
Paige, a student.

New $10.6M Bascom Norris



segment nearing completion


By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.com
After years as a dirt right-of-
way, a road from Lake Jeffery
Road to U.S. 41 North will
soon become another freshly
paved part of Bascom Norris
Drive.
The piece of road is consid-
ered Segment F of the ongoing
$10.6 million Bascom Norris
project, which is being paid for
entirely out of a county-wide 5-
cent gas tax to conclude at the
end of this year.
Originally planned to be a
"bypass," it is in reality a con-
nector road that once com-.
plete will allow travel from
State Road 47 South all the way
to U.S. 90 East.
But the county is under a
time crunch to complete the
segment so that new steel joist
and deck manufacturer New
Millennium Building Systems
can use the road from its facili-
ty off Lake Jeffery Road as a
quick route to Interstate 10 via
U.S. 41.
The industry could start
production by the end of the
month.
County Manager Dale
Williams said Wednesday that
a portion of the road has
already been paved from the
New Millennium construction
site to Lake Jeffery and
expects the entire segment will
be complete by March.
However, he added that the
time schedule depends on
favorable weather.


JENNIFER CHASTEEN/Lake City Reporter
Michael Williams (left) Works through the rain and marks
measurement lines with Marselena Hawkins and Joseph
Simpson during construction on Bascom Norris Road
Wednesday afternoon. Construction is under way on Bascom
Norris Road from U.S. 41 to Lake Jeffery Road.


Also, he said the Florida
Department of Transportation
and county engineer are cur-
rently discussing how to han-
dle traffic flow at the-intersec-
tion of Bascom Norris and U.S.
41 North, such as if there
should be a turn lane or not
Once that is resolved and
stormwater systems are com-
pleted just off the road, paving


of the segment can begin.
He said small areas of right-
of-way in the Fowler Avenue
area have not officially been
acquired, but the landowners
have given permission for
work to be started on the prop-
erty. What was once a piece of
Fowler Avenue that connected
with U.S. 41 North has already
been re-named Bascom Norris


Drive and will provide a basis
for the new intersection.
But just to put the road in
Williams said there were "wet-
lands issues" that would be
affected by paving the road.
When the new segment is
complete, a flashing yellow
light will be placed on Lake
Jeffery to help control traffic at
the intersection with Bascom
Norris. Williams said once traf-
fic counts become high
Enough on both roads, the
light can be easily converted to
a full traffic signal.
Following Segment F, the
final portion of the Bascom
Norris project will be Segment
E, the most expensive and
longest single part of the road.
That segment will run from
U.S. 90 West between Lowe's
,and Wal-Mart through cur-
rently undeveloped land all the
way to Lake Jeffery Road.
However, the land in that area
is filled with wetlands and a
CSX railroad for which an over-
pass will have to be built.
"That's the one that we are
going to be most careful about
(planning)," Williams said.
'That's the most expensive
phase from the word go, and
we've always known that, so
we are going to have to watch
that one closely."
There is currently no
schedule for when the con-
struction on the final segment
will begin, however, Williams
said he expects the entire
project to remain within
budget.

Big Lots,,




a big deal

officially y confirmed by the com-
pany or not, all indications point
to the fact that Big Lots soon
will open in Lake City. This is
good new0 on several fronts.
The location of a major retail project in
our market is good news. It will add com-
petition in a sector of our business econo-
my that desperately needs it.
It will create 40 or more new full-time
jobs.
And, it will occupy a building that once
was vacant.
All of these facts are a plus for Lake City
and Columbia County.
A lot of individuals in business, real
estate and at the office of Columbia County
Economic Development, all worked hard to
make this business move a reality.
Big Lots will add a new dimension to the
shopping options of Columbia County resi-
dents and those who come to our county
"o 'other areas to shop.
Hopefully, the location of the retailer to
the Lake City market will open the door for
others that soon will come here.
We congratulate the parties involved in
assisting Big Lots in selecting a suitable site
in Columbia County. We look forward to the
store's grand opening.

Glad to keep
tradition alive


It is my honor and privilege
to be chosen as Columbia
High School's Head Football
Coach. I am very appreciative
and humbled to again have
the opportunity to serve in
this capacity.
First, I offer my sincere
apology for the controversy
fueled by my hiring. It was not
and will not be my intention to
hurt or disrespect anyone. I
truly appreciate the confi-
dence shown to me by
Superintendent Markham, the
selection committee, the
Principal and the board mem-
bers who voted for my return.
I will do everything possible
to maintain that confidence.
Columbia High School is
the winningest football pro-
gram in the state of Florida.
There are many 'reasons for

this unbelievable success.
However, one of the most
important is the support given
by the community. I ask the
community to unite in their
efforts to continue with the
tradition of excellence of
Tiger Football. In a small way
community morale seems to
go up and down depending on
how well our team performs.
This is one of the great
aspects of our town.
The Columbia County
Quarterback Club is one of
the foremost in the country. I
know each member feels hon-
ored to be part of it. The busi-
nesses that support our team
every year make tremendous
contributions to keep improv-
ing our program. Please, sup-
port those businesses that
support Columbia High athlet-
ics.
Columbia High football has
touched and will continue to
touch many young men's lives


of Columbia County. I've said
many times this football pro-
gram is much larger than any
coach who leads it. My staff
and I will continue to carry on
the Tiger tradition in the most
positive way trying to the best
of our abilities to continue put-
ting on the field every Friday
night a class program that will
produce a very entertaining
product.
Finally, and most important-
ly, I would like to thank my
friends and family for your
support and. encouragement.
My promise is to move for-
ward in a very positive man-
ner to provide our students
athletics with every opportu-
nity to be successful on and
off the field.
Again, thank you for your
support. Let us all continue
building on Tiger Tradition
and Pride.

are great, but it's going
to be congested with the
traffic and hotels are not
going to be available for
the local public. I will not

Make sure fire


department can


find your house


By Don Wilson
Lake City Fire Department

This weeks' Safety Tips
* deal with Home Addressing.
The Lake
Department
strives to
k e e p
response
"'- times at a
minimum.
Wilson Far too often
we are in the
area and
spend precious time trying to
locate the physical address of
the emergency. Please help
us to help you by answering
the following questions:
Can your house number
be seen from the road?
If your address is on
your mailbox, can it be seen
(clearly) from either direc-
tion?
Is it obvious which mail-
box goes with which house,
or is it in a group?
And, is your mailbox
even in front of your house?
Can your house number
be seen at night?
Does your house meet
the current municipal code as
provided below?
Have you removed old
addressing numbers? The
City and County have very
similar Codes when it comes
to placing address on your
home.
Numbers must be clearly


visible and legible from the
public or private way on
which the building fronts
with Arabic numbers not less
than 3 inches in height and
one and one-half inches in
width.
Buildings which are not
visible from the road way
shall also place an additional
set of numbers on a post at
the entrance to the property.
Numbers must be in a
color contrasting to the build-
ing background. (Light col-
ored building use dark num-
bers, Dark colored building
use light numbers).
M Where applicable, easily
legible numbers shall also be
affixed to the mail box serv-
ing the house.
Apartments and busi-
ness suites, each unit should
be clearly posted.
When emergency person-
nel are responding to an
emergency, whether in a resi-
dential neighborhood or
down a rural road, and are
unable to locate an address,
frustration sets in as seconds
may mean the difference
between life and death. Fire
and rescue personnel all too
often experience this type of
situation as people do not
clearly mark their home
address. Not providing a
clearly marked address for
your home may be inviting
disaster in the event of an
emergency.
Until next week, be safe.

Laxton did not speculate on
any other new details of the
case besides Razor's time of
death. No arrest has been
made in Razor's killing.
Razor was not a Lake City
resident, but police do know
he spent some time in the
North Carolina state prison
system before being arrested
in Lake City. According to
Razor's last arrest report, he is
listed as homeless and had a
South Carolina driver's
license.

Police know Razor left jail
with a wallet and received $10.
from a friend later in the day.
Neither the wallet or the
money have been found.
Razor's body was found the
morning of Jan. 20 lying in the

by two women who later called
911. Anyone with information

rounding activities, the hotel
will show the game on a pro-
jection system in its confer-
ence room.
Elsewhere among the
Interstate 75/U.S. 90 West cor-
ridor hotels, John Parker, man-
ager- of the Comfort Inn and
Quality Inn and Conference
Center, said those hotels are
both expected to be full for the
next few days.
While most of the guests
are in town for the game,
Parker said about 40 are from
a company that was displaced
from a Jacksonville hotel that
had its rooms reserved for
Super Bowl guests only.
He said he is also expecting
many of the hotels' guests to
arrive, starting today, continu-
ing thorough the weekend.
"At this point we would not
have a room available to stay
straight through," he said,
adding that there are 222
rooms between the two hotels.
Parker compared the cur-
rent demand for local hotel
rooms to other annual events,
such as the Daytona 500 or
Pepsi 400 NASCAR races.


However, he said that those
events usually don't bring
guests who stay for at least
three days.
Nick Patel is manager of
Country Inn and Suites and
Hampton Inn and co-owns the
properties with his uncle P.J.
Patel who oversees the Days
Inn on U.S. 90 West.
Nick said both of the hotels
he oversees are booked for the
weekend with a few rooms
being held for contingency,
such as regular customers
who need a place to stay.
He said he and his uncle
"were not at all surprised" by
the demand for rooms from
Super Bowl fans, even though
Jacksonville is about an hour
away..
"We knew Jacksonville did-
n't have the rooms that Super
Bowl events usually demand,
and it is just 65 miles," Nick
said. "We expected the
demand. It's great to have, and
February is always a busy
period for the region anyway."
With all of the Super Bowl
guests in town for the week-
end, he said he expects the
"environment will be a little
upbeat," but considers his
hotels' obligation to not be dis-


tracted and "to give the best.
service we always give."
"It's a challenge because of,
the traffic obviously, but I
think they (the employees)
are prepared to handle it,"
Nick said.
"A Super Bowl event brings
an energy to the town, and I
think everybody has to be
ready to serve and we would
definitely like to create a good
impression of Lake City."
At Lake City Municipal,
Airport, Assistant City
Manager Tom Sawyer, who
oversees its operation, said
that it had only normal traffic
as of Wednesday afternoon,
but expected more closer to
the big game. Sawyer said one
aircraft known as a King Air, a
twin-engine -passenger plane,
had a reservation to fly in and
park Friday, but expects most
of the airport's business to be
from "drop-offs" with only a
few stayovers.
However, he added that
depending on what happens in
Jacksonville and surrounding
airports, demand at the local
airport can quickly change.
"We are staffed, have securi-
ty and are ready 'to go,"
Sawyer said.

MAKING THE MOST OF
WHAT YOU HAVE
The term "low vision" refers to
any visual distortion that cannot
be: corrected to (near) normal
with glasses, contact lenses, or
surgery. The most common cause
of low vision is age-relaied macu-
lar degeneration. The key to cop-
ing with low vision is mating the
mo-[ of ciJtie remaining vision To
tlus end. the magnifying glass
remains one of the best ita is to
maximize one's remaining vision.
This low-tech solution can be put
to work by incorporating; small
magnifiing lenses into prescip,.
lion e, eglasse-. as bifocals.
Conversely, special lenses that
i\ork like miniature telescopes
can be mounted on glasses for use
while driving or watching a movie.
There are also a variety of high-
tech solutions that can help peo-
ple cope with low vision.
There are a number of optical
devices that can help people with
low vision. For example, minia-
ture telescopes can be mounted
on glasses, or small magnifying
lenses can be incorporated into
eyeglasses. Continuing optical
advances help increase the likeli-
hood that you can enjoy clear
vision throughout your life. Call
COLE OPTICS at (386) 754-6616 to
schedule an eye exam, or visit us
at 621 SW Baya Dr., Suite 101 to
browse through our display of
frames.
PS. The vision loss associated
with macular degeneration usual-
ly occurs in the central portion of
the visual field.

Super Bowl testL


Mario
Sanmento


D.D. Lewis speaks at Christ Centrn!


Is Brady


the best?

SHere we go
again. Every
time a team
makes it to
the Super
Bowl multiple times, the
pundits and experts decide
they're going to lift two or
three chosen ones from the
team and proclaim them as
the best ever.
This year, Bill Belichick
and Tom Brady have gotten
the nod for the New
England Patriots. Haven't
we been here before?
Wasn't it only 10 years ago
that after winning his third
Super Bowl in four years,
people were saying that
Troy Aikman was one of
the best to ever play the
position?
Now, with a little hind-
sight and the fact Dallas
didn't win anything after
Super Bowl XXX Aikman
isn't even a part of the dis-
cussion. '
What does that mean for
Mr. Brady, especially if he
delivers a third Vince :
Lombardi Trophy to the
masses at Foxboro?
Well, lost in all the hoopla
over Tom is the fact that
the Patriots are a pretty
good football team. A name-
less, faceless team, much in
the image of the 1972-73
Miaini Dolphins but a
very good team nonethe-
less. I'm sure if Bob Griese
had thrown more than 18
passes in those two
Dolphins' Super Bowl wins
combined, his head would
have been framed for a bust
on pro football's Mount
Rushniore.
Brady is a great quarter-
back for the system he's in,
without a doubt. But he has
one of the best defenses
over the last 10 years
behind him, and he plays
behind an offensive line,
that much like Aikman's,
doesn't allow his jersey to
ever get stained.
Winning Super Bowls is a
team effort. If it isn't, then
why doesn't Terry
Bradshaw's name and
his four rings come uip
more often in the talk about
the greatest QBs ever?
As far as I'm concerned,
let's give Brady a few more
years before we start mak-
ing proclamations about his
greatness. For now, let's
see him as he is: A very
good quarterback in a well-
conceived system who
knows when to make risky
throws and knows how to
take care of the football.
He's not as gifted an athlete
as Joe Montana, but he's
very smart and knows his
role well. However, he can-
not win a game by himself
as consistently as a Dan.
Marino or John Elway..
could. And that's why he
doesn't rank in the top 10
on my list.

Fort White High soccer
captain Bryan Taylor may
have just missed a chance
to play for a district title, as
his Indians were eliminated
3-2 in a controversial loss to
Santa Fe High on Tuesday
night. But he did get a
greater reward accept-
ance into the U.S. Air Force
Academy. Taylor, an honors
student at Fort White, will
be making the trip to
Colorado Springs in June to
continue his education.

It has been Road to the
Super Bowl month at Christ

FORT WHITE For the
first time ever, Fort White
High had a football player
sign on National Signing Day.
And by all accounts, it could-
n't have happened to a better
person.
Jonathan James made his
transition from high school to
college official when he
signed with Florida A&M
University on Wednesday. On
hand were James' parents,
Lowell and Brepda; his sister
Robin, his aunt Ruthie Moore,
the Fort White coaches,.
Principal Keith Hatcher, team-
mates, cheerleaders and a few
select friends at the Fort
White Media Center.
"He is a good all-around
kid," Hatcher said. "I have no
complaints about him whatso-
ever. Just a good role model.
Fantastic character. And he's
going to do well."
James, who transferred
from Santa Fe High two years
ago, led the Indians in receiv-
,ing in his junior and senior
seasons. He caught 22 passes
for 329 yards and three TDs
last year, and returned a punt
71 yards for a TD against
Columbia High.
"It certainly is a privilege, I
take it not lightly," James said
of being the first Indian to
sign on Signing Day. "A
chance to represent my
school and the players. And I
won't disappoint."
James said he was being
looked at by Georgia South-
ern, and he had been to some
FAMU games unoffically
before getting a phone call
from the school last week.
FAMU coaches were inter-

ested, but they hadn't seen
James play. So James and his
father drove all the way to
Tallahassee just to give the
FAMU coaches a videotape of
his exploits.'
'"They told me they would
call me, back in 24 hours,"
James said. "And that was like,
8 o'clock Saturday night..And
by 8 o'clock Sunday night.
they hadn't called. So I'm get-
ting nervous. My mom and
dad .are trying to keep the
phone lines clear. And at about
10:30, he called. And I knew it


was him. And he said, 'I got
you in buddy.' And I was like,
'You did?' And I went crazy,
running around the house and
jumping up and down."
James said the coaches
have him listed as an "athlete"
for the moment, which means
they will try him at a number
of skill positions before decid-
ing on where he will best fit
on the team.
James of course already has
his preference.
"I would love to play wide
receiver at the college level,"


CHS girls weightlifting wins


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com

Columbia High's girls
weightlifting team beat Union
County High 45-18 on
Wednesday in the only home
meet of the season for the
Lady Tigers.
Columbia's season did inc-
lude two sectionals, used to
determine the state qualifiers.
Marie Croft and Jenna Payne
qualified for state at the
sectional.
Eight other Lady Tigers
made the second sectional
field, which was based on
their performance at the first
sectional. The other lifters are
Vanessa, Baker, Jamie
Williams, Christine Moses,
Chelsea Blair, Kori Drake,
Jolene Hill, Oja Rollins and
Brittany McGouyrk.
"The future looks bright for
Columbia weightlifting," coach
Kent Maugeri said: "Out of
those who qualified for the sec-
,ond sectional, five are sopho-
mores and two are freshmen."
Croft and Payne won their
respective weight divisions,
101 pounds and 110, against
Union County. Croft totaled
220 pounds with a 105 bench
press and a 115 clean and
jerk. Payne lifted 105-120-225.
Six other Lady Tigers won
their weight class: Moses at
129 with 95-135-230; Drake at
154 with 110-135-245; Hill at

at 129 with 90-105-195.
Williams (70-75-145 at 119)
and Kiersten Rieter (75-90-
165) also competed.
Rollins, a sophomore, is lift-



ing in her first year and
improved 30 pounds in the
bench and 20 pounds in the
clean and jerk through the sea-
son. The increased strength
will help in her next sport.
"My friends told me about it
and wanted me to come out,"
Rollins said.
"The 195 bench is my high-
est so far.
"It will get me ready for
football I'm going out in the
spring."
The state competition is in
DeLand on Feb. 12.


he said with a smile. "Be-.
cause, FAMU is a passing
team, and they like to throw
the ball a lot, and they'll get
you a lot of receptions."
Indians offensive line coach
Charles Moore is a FAMU
graduate, and he is married to
James' aunt Ruthie, but he
downplayed his role in James'
signing.
"I don't want to take the
credit because the whole
coaching staff is really what
did it," he said. "We worked
together as a unit, as a coach-


ing staff, and we try to do
what we can for all our kids. it
just so happened that I went
to f. %'.i ', and I had some
c(no. ',.,-. there, and that's

that I wanted him to go to
FAMU, it's that I wanted him
to go to ,,i -I, :- somewhere,
and he fell in FAMU's lap."
Indians coach Mike Hunter
said he and his 1. 1, ,. ...,W
miss J.na, leadership both
on and off the field.

kind of took over as a leader,
verbally and on the field,"
Hunter said. 'The kids really*

ed to him. And we'll miss the
big play."

LEWIS
Continued from page 1B

Mississippi State, played 14
seasons for the Cowboys. He
played in five Super Bowls,
and Dallas won two of them.
The youngest of 14 chil-
di'en, Lewis credits football
with saving him as a young
man but almost destroying
him as.an adult. He was jailed
two weeks in solitary confine-
ment for stealing a car and
sentenced to two years, but
his mom pleaded for him, and
he was given probation and
enrolled in a Lutheran school.
"They accepted me for one
of their own, and they put up
boundaries for me," Lewis said.
. After returning to public
school, Lewis's nephew talked
him into going out for football.
"I found I could take my
aggression off the street and
put it in the athletic arena,"
Lewis said. 'The coaches
became my surrogate father,
and I would play ball for them."
The same pattern contin-
ued as Lewis tried to qualify to
attend Mississippi State he
finally overcame making, a 7


older sister at FAMU.
"I feel real good about it,"
his mother Brenda said.
"Especially since .he's going to
get an education and we
don't have to pay for it."
Indians defensive coordina-
tor Demetric Jackson, who
left Columbia High for the
University of Florida 13 years
ago, passed on some of his
knowledge to James.
"I just told him, be selective


on his first ACT try.
"I received the adulation I
was wanting, but I was living a
double life a Christian ath-
lete, but still living :on the
street. A double life will kill
you, and it almost got me."
Lewis was able to handle
'drinking through his pro
career, but three months after
retirement he began having
thoughts of suicide.
"I couldn't tell anybody,"
Lewis said. "I always thought
it was a sign of weakness to be
vulnerable. But you can stop
compulsive thinking, if you
. share it with someone else.
We need friends we can
bounce things off of. We need
.people to help us. It is hard to
do it on your own."
Drinking eventually cost
Lewis his family and his pos-
sessions.
"It is a horrible disease, but
I was in denial," Lewis said. "I
never stopped to look inside
and see who I was. I was flying
too fast."
Lewis was in and out of
Alcoholics Anonymous for

said.
"Be in a situation where
you'll be around a lot of good
people."
James will major in educa-
tion at FAMU, and he already
has a job offer available if he
needs it.
"I just hope I can get him to
come back with me and coach
football," Jackson said with a
laugh.

put in an institution," Lewis
said. "I prayed to God to send
a man into my life and five
minutes later the phone rang."
; Lewis's mentor got him
back into counseling, and he
beat the beast.
"After a couple of years of
sobriety, I wanted more out of
my spirituality," Lewis said. "I
believe in Jesus Christ, and I
wanted to stand up for Him."
Visits to schools and
churches are some of the
ways Lewis is doing that. *
Christ Central Ministries
will wrap up its month-long
Super Bowl theme on Sunday
with a party that 'begins at 3
p.m. and watching the game
in the church sanctuary.
"We feel like the Super Bowl
is a big event in our culture,"
said Pastor Lonnie Johns, who
has been preaching while
wearing a football jersey dur-
ing the month. "We feel
Christians can have a good
time. We thought this would
be a great time for (Lewis) to
come and share his testimony.
S"He was a champion, but he
wasn't a champion, in life until
he accepted Christ."

Big fmun at Big Shoals


Bike, hike


trail ready


for visitors

By ASHLEY CISNEROS
acisneros@lakecityreporter.corn
WHITE SPRINGS Those
who think that Florida is
entirely flat haven't been to
Big Shoals State Park.
Beneath the protective
blanket of towering pines and
lush palmettos lies a maze of
steep slopes and ravines along
the Suwannee River.
Big Shoals Public Lands
contains 3, 772 acres of land
preserve and showcases the
largest whitewater rapids in
the state.
Visitors may enjoy 28 miles
of trails and activities such as
horseback riding, picnicking,
canoeing, bicycling, kayaking
and hiking.
The park's newest addition
is Woodpecker Trail.
The 3.4-mile paved trail
allows visitors to travel back
and forth from the Big Shoals
and Little Shoals entrances.
The vision for the trail actu-
ally started about .four years
ago with the surveying of the
land, said Park Ranger Stan
Christian.
'The actual construction
started this past year during
the middle of the summer,
and it was finished up by the
middle of December," he said.
A ribbon-cutting ceremo-
ny will take place March
19.
. "We've had a really positive

An unidentified biker rides on the newly constructed, paved, Woodpecker Trail at Big Shoals
State Park. The 3.4-mile trail connects the Big Shoals and Little Shoals entrances.


response from people,"
Christian said. "We've seen a
lot of families here as they can
bring their children to walk or
ride bicycles without worry-
ing about sharing the road
with vehicles." .
The trail offers a safe way to
get exercise while enjoying
wildlife and plant life along
the way.
Covered areas are situated
along the trail so that visitors
can rest if they need to, or get
shelter from rain.
"People who come here will
have the opportunity to see
animals in their natural set-
tings, like turkey and deer,"
Christian said.
-Visitors have often spotted


tracks left by some of the
park's inhabitants along the
trail.
The park also has grills, pic-
nic tables and fire rings locat-
ed by Big Shoals and a cov-
ered picnic shelter by Little
Shoals.
In addition to hiking on
Woodpecker Trail, visitors
may also wish to explore the
shoals.
The area known as the
shoals, is a one-mile stretch of
river rapids created 10 to 16
million years ago.
Over time, the river
washed away softer sedi-
ments leaving the hard
limestone outcrop
behind.


Class III White Water con-
ditions for kayaking occur
when the water level falls
between 59 and 61 feet mean
sea level.
The area known as Little
Shoals is actually a smaller set
of rapids along the Suwannee
River.
Visitors may consult the
Suwannee River Water Mana-
gement District Web site at
http://mysuwanneeriver corn
for updates on the daily river
levels.,
Wendell Hannum, owner
and' operator of American
Canoe Adventures, has
noticed an increase in visitors
from outside of the area in
his 11 years of being in busi-,


ness.
"I have seen more people
from Lake City and
Jacksonville," he said.
"Memorial Day is always our
busiest time."
In addition to canoeing or
kayaking down the river, visi-
tors can also enjoy the multi-
tude of wildlife that call the
.park home.
This includes red-tailed
hawks, white-tailed deer, box
turtles arid timber rattlers to
name a few.
The river also offers
large-mouth bass, black
crappie and channel catfish
among other fish to those
with a proper fishing
license.
Hunting is also permitted
in designated areas.
Several programs are led
by park rangers upon request
including Hike to Big Shoals,
Hike to Bottom Bay, and a
slide show of the wildlife and
other natural features of the
park.
"The hikes are good
because visitors are guided
through the park by a
ranger who can point out
changes in the type of soil
and the changes in, vegeta-
tion that they may not
notice alone," Christian
said.
On the Hike to Bottom
Bay, visitors can see old
coral formations at the bot-
tom of the creek from the
days when Florida .was a
sand bar.
'The native Americans
used these materials to make
some of their stone tools,"
Christian explained.
The park opens every day
at 8 a.m. and closes at sun-
down year round.,

Lake City anglers win tourney


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

BRANFORD -Wintertime
fishing is often a tough and
slow task that awards anglers
who are committed and will-
ing to make a sacrifice to
catch fish.
Saturday, a pair of Lake City
anglers showed they were
committed to catching fish in
any conditions, and hooked
12.79 pounds of fish to win the
Second Annual Josh Shepard
Memorial Scholarship Open
Bass Tournament, which was
sponsored by the North
Florida Bassmasters.
Ruben Thomas and Steve
Cannon won the tournament
with 12.79 pounds of fish, and
also took big fish honors in
the Bass Assassin Big Fish
Tournament, which was being
held in conjunction with the
scholarship tournament.
Thomas and Cannon
weighed in largemouth bass
tipping the scales at 4.04
pounds and 4.16 pounds,
respectively, to take big fish
honors.
The tournament was held
from the Ivey -Memorial Park
ramp in Branford with 14
anglers taking part in the con-
test.
With air temperatures in
the 30-degree range, rainy

conditions and stiff winds
blowing, many tournament
anglers dawned helmets as
they made long runs up and
down river searching for fish.
Many tournament anglers
speculated Thomas and
Cannon could have traveled
as far as 60 miles south, to the
mouth of the Suwannee River


and Gulf of Mexico, to catch
their fish.
Eric Wood and Joey Wood
captured second place in the
tournament when they hoo-
ked into 8.33 pounds of fish.
Third-place honors went to
Junior Dice and George
Pridgen, who came to the.
scales with 7.04 pounds.
