County looks

to change

existing land

use plan
By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.com
It's an imaginary line that
many Columbia County resi-
dents could care less about or
don't know exists.
But the boundary of the
county's Designated Urban
Development Area, often
called the urban service line,
could be what decides how -
and if the Lake City area
grows from the constant
influx of new residents.
"The future of the commu-
nity hinges on this," said
Daniel Crapps, local real
estate broker and developer.
The DUDA is a key part of
Sthe county's comprehensive
land use plan and is what dic-
tates where new residential
and commercial development
can occur.
Outside of the boundary,
residential lots must be at
least five acres and subdivid-
ing the land into smaller plots
for new homes on less than
that isn't allowed.
As a result, new subdivi-
sions featuring only lots less
than five acres must be inside
the DUDA.
With the housing market
booming in the county under
constant demand from new
people moving to the area,
local leaders and real estate
developers like Crapps say,
land available for subdividing
is about to run out.
They want the DUDA to be,
expanded and open more land
for affordable development.
'There are a lot of people
who want to buy a house and a
small tract of land," said
County Commissioner Ron
Williams. "They want a quar-
ter-acre lot and we are fast
running out of those in the
urban service area. It needs to
be expanded."
But doing so requires per-
mission from the state and, so
far, the county's efforts have
been fruitless.,

A house in the Creekside subdivision-off Sister's Welcome Road is currently under
construction. County officials look to change the current land use plan by allowing more
subdivisions to be built in more rural settings across the county.

While some people may
move to Columbia County to
buy a five-acre plot of land
and experience the country
life, local Realtors and offi-
cials say there are far more
people seeking smaller prop-
erty, just enough for their


house and a manageable
yard.
"We are running out of
land to develop to meet that,
need for a quarter- to half-
acre lot." said Elaine K.
Tolar. broker/owner of.
Coldwell Banker Bishop
Realty. "Some people want
five acres, but a huge per-
centage of retirees do not

want to maintain and mow
five acres of land."
Currently, she said there
is simply too little supply to
meet the demand for small
lots, particularly in new sub-
dilisions. And the majority of
the new people moving to
the area are retirees, she
said.
Tolar said she and other
local real estate brokers are
"waiting with bated breath"
for new subdivisions to be
designed, approved and
developed.
Five-acre lots are the
smallest option out of the
county's Designated Urban
Development Area or
"DUDA," which 'is currently
just outside of Lake City lim-
its in most directions.
With the smaller lots only
inside that area, Tolar said
unless the DUDA is expand-
ed the supply will remain,
limited.
"If it can be developed in
the urban area, it is either
already bought or being
developed or has been devel-
oped," she said.
And as a result of the low
supply, Tolar said continued
demand will only drive up
the price of available lots.

Local land use plan result of state mandate


By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.com
Ronald Reagan had just
begun his second term as
president and Coca-Cola intro-
duced New Coke when
Florida's Legislature passed a
sweeping land-use law with
statewide implications.
Called the Growth
Management Act and enacted
in 1985, the law sought to
require all local governments
in Florida's 67 counties to cre-
ate their own comprehensive
land use plans that were con-
sistent with a statewide
model.
Among the act's most
restrictive elements included
requiring all local plans to ptit
land into zones (such as com-


mercial and residential) and
any new development be sup-
ported by the necessary infra-
structure like roads, sewer
and water.
The intention of the act was
to encourage compacted
development (restricted to a
defined area) and limit urban
sprawl, though its critics have
said it fails to consistently do
either.
City Manager Joe Cone
said, "What happens is you
get the higher density devel-
opment in the rural areas with
no amenities," such as utilities
and street lights. He said in
those cases private develop-
ers can often leave the local

Deputy escaped injury
after crash; Live Oak
man arrested.
By RANDY ROUGHTON
rroughton@lakecityreporter.com
A high-speed pursuit down
U.S. 90 early Saturday morn-
ing ended with a Columbia
County Sheriff's Department
deputy rolling his vehicle and
the arrest of a 23-year-old Live
Oak man.
Sheriff's deputy Lt. Ryan
Nydam, who joined the pur-
suit at the request of Lake
City Police Department offi-
cers, escaped injury when his
vehicle rolled onto its top after
he swerved to avoid a head-on
collision with the suspect.
Phillip Lanier, 23, of Live
Oak, was arrested and
booked into the Columbia
County Jail after he repeated-
ly refused to pull over and
attempted to ram law enforce-
ment vehicles several times.
The entire pursuit lasted
about 10 minutes, but during

that time, Lanier repeatedly
slowed his vehicle, then accel-
erated when officers
approached, according to an
arrest report from the sher-
iff's office.
He also repeatedly traveled
the wrong way on U.S. 90 as
well as Interstate 75, causing
other drivers to swerve and
stop suddenly to avoid colli-
sion.

Annual event expected
to bring millions of
dollars into economy
By TONY BRITT

The Olustee Battle Festival
is expected to bring millions
of dollars to the local econo-
my.
It is the biggest annual fes-
tival for Columbia County.
tracking where
the dollars are
coming from and
who is attending
the festival, the
Col u m b i a '
County Tourism
Development Campbell
Council has hired
the University of Florida to do
an economic impact and
research study.
Harvey Campbell, director
of the local tourism council,
said the study will take place
on Friday and Saturday as 400
people are surveyed by
University of Florida students.
"This research is essential
in identifying where people
are coming from and what
their demographics are," he
said.
The study is being funded
through a grant by Visit
Florida, a tourism agency.
Tourists each spend about
$123 a day when visiting
Florida, according to Visit
Florida.
"That may be true in
Orlando or Miami, but it isn't
in Lake City," he said. "We

suspect that maybe $65 or $70
a day."
He said the study will pro-
vide realistic numbers that
can be used by the Tourism
Development Council as it
makes plans for the festival.
Campbell said information
from the study could also be
used to help attract regional
or national sponsors for the
event.
"Olustee is of such a signifi-
cant impact to the point where
it doesn't need to and should-
n't have to rely totally on busi-
nesses here sponsoring it," he
said.
'There are too many good
causes here that dollars are
stretched awful thin trying to
support."
This is the first time a finan-
cial impact and research
study has been done on the
Olustee Battle Festival.
"We're kind of excited
about this," Campbell said.
'This is long overdue. This is
the first time we've done a
research project and we're
remised' in doing that. Rural
counties, typically have had a
mindset of saying, 'We can't
afford research,' but I've
come to the opinion, we can't
afford not to do research."
Campbell said a similar study
done by students from Florida
State University established
that the one day Olustee
Battle reenactment brought
nearly $3 million into the area.

Collector hopes to .



open new museum ....
ir


By SUSAN M. GREEN
The Tampa Tribune
LAND 0' LAKES -
Nobody knows how T.K. lost
his shoe in the Hillsborough
River.
Almost two centuries later,
though, Ralph Van Blarcom is
glad T.K. left it there. For peo-
ple trying to trace yesterday's
footsteps, yesterday's foot is a
big deal, even if it's on the
small side, say, maybe size 7.
T.K. likely was a soldier in
the mid-1800s who carved his
initials into the soles of his
Army-issued brogans to keep
comrades from appropriating
them.
Buttons, pipes, a wedding
band, hand-rolled pills in tiny
glass bottles and U.S. pennies
the size of quarters showed
up at Van Blarcom's home in
Land 0' Lakes a few years
ago, courtesy of the owners
who collected them.
The leather footwear is
among thousands of artifacts
-from the Seminole Wars
plucked from the river near
Fort Foster in Thonotosassa
or unearthed near many of the
dozens of makeshift military
outposts scattered across
Florida during the 1800s.
Now he and others interest-
ed in Florida's military history
are scouting for a place to
show them off. The group has
formed a nonprofit corpora-
tion, Historical Preservation
Inc., to take donations of land,
cash or more artifacts.
"It's 'our goal to, have a
museum," Van Blarcom said.
Van Blarcom, a tropical fish


pathologist who moonlights
as a Seminole War-era re-enac-
tor, has spent two years soak-
ing many of the items in elec-
trolyte baths and using other
restoration techniques to coax
them into a condition worthy
of display.
"What is not preserved in
the near future just will not be
here," said Harley Gilmore,
Historical Preservation presi-
dent. "It will be destroyed."
Even before Florida.
became a U.S. territory in
1821, troops marched south of
the Georgia line to attack the
Seminoles, blaming them for
raids on American settlers.
The Seminoles proved hard
to quell, however. They resis-
ted efforts to relocate their
tribes west of the Mississippi
River in three wars, the first in
1817, the second from 1835 to
1842 and the third from 1855
to 1858.
In the 1830s, according to
history accounts, Gen.
Zachary Taylor carved the
new territory into 20-square-
mile grids, intending for a pro-
tective garrison to be estab-
lished in each.
'There were lots of log
forts," Van Blarcom said.
Thanks primarily to two
large private collections from
Bill Keller of Chiefland and
Glen Nickens of Lakeland,
Historical Preservation has
custody of thousands of arti-
facts from about 35 forts that
were scattered across central
Florida, Van Blarcom said.
The cddlltfion is thought to
be 'the' largest cache" 'of
Seminole War-era artifacts


ever assembled, he said.
Gilmore, a longtime survey-
or who developed an interest
in Indian history after mark-
ing off acres of barely touched
land, said Florida's "explosion
of development" makes it
important to encourage
preservation of clues to the
past.
For historians, Van Blarcom
said, the artifacts help fill gaps
in knowledge about the 19th
century life of a soldier
gleaned from diaries, letters
and military records.
Discoveries of old garden
hoes and coffee grinders con-
firm what history buffs long
suspected: Soldiers found
ways to supplement their daily
ration of dried beef, salt pork,
beans and hard tack.
From Fort Jennings, bullets
gouged by teeth marks offer
evidence of someone's long-
ago agony, underscoring the
origin's of the saying, "Bite the
bullet," Van Blarcom said.
Flattened bullets used as
poker chips also were
unearthed.
Fancy china pieces and a
silver cup engraved with the
image of a dragon illustrate
the differences between offi-
cers and the men they com-
manded.
"The officers used to bring
wagonload after wagonload of
their personal belongings,"
Van Blarcom said. 'The sol-
diers lived like grunts."
Relics include such every-
day items as toothbrushes
with bristles long disintegrat-
ed aid mustache combs that
folded like penkni% es.


World Thinking Day
Live Oak Girl Scouts Madisen Buzbee of Troop 360 (from left), Tayler Rode of Troop 519, and
Rebecca Alban ofTroop 360 display objects from the small country of Vanuatu for Girl Scout
World Thinkin:g Day. Girl Scouts from the tri-county area gathered to 'represent various coun-
tries that have Girl Scout organizations around the world at the Lake City Community College,

Bidding




process



needs



attention

T he Columbia County
Commission continues dis-
cussing a delicate issue when it
talks of changing or amending
the process by which the coun-
ty contracts for services.
It's too soon to say what is bad or good
or what should be endorsed or despised.
The situation demands a closer look by
the public, as well as the commissioners.
The confusion began recently when the
commisF6iohidistribiuted a request for ifnfor-
mation that contained confusing wording.
Was it a bid or a proposal? A little bit of
both?
There have been complaints that the
county's current bidding processes are not
consistent. Several county commissioners
agree and want to adjust this problem. In
the process, commissioners have used
wording such as, "not handled consistent-
ly," "screwed up," "bad situation," and
"embarrassing."
Most recently, a statement concerning
lawsuit avoidance was made. Let's hope
our county commission doesn't get into a
position to need a legal defense team. We
think it's wise the commission has sched-
uled a public workshop for March 8 to dis-
cuss the particulars of what the county
needs in a bidding process.
Work is the key word.
The entire plan needs work. The
process in moving the policy from where it
is today, to where it needs to be, definitely
needs close scrutiny from the taxpayers of
Columbia County.


Today is Sunday, Feb. 13, the 44th day of
2005. There are 321 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:
On Feb. 13, 1935, a jury in Flemington,
NJ., found Bruno Richard Hauptmann
guilty of first-degree murder in the kidnap-
death of the son of Charles and Anne
Liij dbi-rgh. (Hauptmann was later execut-
ed.)

On this date:
In 1542, the fifth wife of England's King
Henry VIII, Catherine Howard, was execut-
ed for adultery.
In 1795, the Ihii.: r.,iry of North Carolina
became the first U.S. state university to
admit students with the arrival of Hinton
James, who was the only student on cam-
pus for two weeks.
In 1914, the American Society of
Composers, Authors and Publishers,
known as ASCAP, was founded in New
York.
In 1920, the League of Nations recog-
nized the perpetual neutrality of
Switzerland.
In 1945, during World War II, the Soviets
captured Budapest, Hungary, from the
Germans.
In 1945, Allied planes began bombing the
German city of Dresden.
In 1960, France exploded its first atomic
bomb.
SIn 1980, opening ceremonies were held
in Lake Placid, N.Y., for the 13th Winter
Olympics.

John Burgess, the "Buggy Luggy man"


Sen John Harold "Buggy
Luggy" Burgess died in 1974 at
the age of just 54, the national-
V ly, famous Florida A&M
VI University (FAMU) football
coach and athletic director emeritus A. S.
"Jake" Gaither came to Lake. City from
Tallahassee to speak at his funeral. And why
not? Coach Gaither wanted to personally rec-
ognize Mr. Burgess, who was an outstanding
graduate of FAMU, a valuable member of
Coach Gaither's "Rattler" football teams, and a
man all FAMU faculty and graduates held in
the highest respect.
Beyond that, Mr. Burgess had set a record of
singular accomplishment in this community,
often while laboring under the sometimes
severe restrictions of racial segregation. He
was an assistant coach for the Richardson High
School Wolves from 1948-65 when they won
several state championships; held a Master
Farmer Degree for distinguished work in
Vocational Agriculture; was a charter member
and first president of the former Columbia
County Negro Teachers Credit Union; served
as president of the Versiteers Club; was past
president of the local FAMU Alumni
Association; was a Certified Lay Speaker of
dynamic ability for the Trinity United
Methodist Church; and had been named the
church's Outstanding Citizen a year before his
death.
And .even beyond that, he was a beautiful,
gentle human being, full of love and laughter
that enveloped all around him in a warm
embrace. But he kept one little secret to him-
self he never told anybody the origin of his
affectionate nickname "Buggy Luggy."
Well, maybe the told his lovely wife Doretha,
a CHS teacher who .was named Florida's
"Chemistry Teacher of the Year" in 1972, but
she never told anybody either.
This month we rightfully celebrate Black
History Month by honoring civil rights pio-
neers like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., James
Meredith, and Rosa Parks, but let's also honor
our pioneers closer to home like Richard and
Charlotte Anders, Elzina Jenkins, Dr. Alfonso
and Celestine Levy, Minnie J. Niblack, Vertie
Mae Barrett, Louis Williams, Annie Parnell,
O.J. Lake, Bettye Lane, Sam Thompson, Henry
Harrington, and John Harold "Buggy Luggy"
Burgess who also made life smoother for all
who followed them.
"Little Women"
Well, that merry band of adventurous thespi-
ans at High Springs Community Theater are at
it again! This time they are presenting the clas-
sic favorite "Little Women," starting Friday.
You know they'll try anything.
Over the past 10 years 40 plus produc-
tions they have presented musicals like
"Man of LaMancha," dramas like "Inherit The
Wind," comedies like "You're A Good Man,

WILLIAMS


Charlie Brown," and murder mysteries like
"Cliff Hanger" and they have been boffo suc-
cessful with all of them.
"Little Women" .features two Lake Citians,
Lorraine Kirkland and Frank Huber (who also
star in the just released independent movie, "A
Second Chance").
Lorraine plays the role of Aunt March to
Amy, Beth, Jo, and Meg, and Frank Huber, our
own "Mr. Theater," is the, play's character,
development coach.
If you go, you're apt to see lots of Lake City
people in the audience people like Roger
and Sue Hadley, James Montgomery, Mark
Kirby, Noah Lindsay, Judy Sears, Myrtle
Principato, and Larry Douglass and that
makes it all the more fun.
The production runs from Feb. 18 March
13, weekends only, Fridays and Saturdays at 8
p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.
It is located at 130 NE First Ave. in High
Springs.

School museum thanks
Thanks to Tracy Brown 'Ogden for a photo of
27 members of the CHS Class of 1943 when
they were in Ms. Mike Buie's eighth-grade
class in 1938.
Some pictured are Tracy's father, Harry
Brown, Alfred Holloway, Pat Murphy, Laverne
Christie, Pauline Wheeler, Miriam McBride,
Marie Albritton, and Gloria Fabian.
Thanks also to Cy Perkins Jr., for three pho-
tos of elementary students in the 1959
Christmas play at the old Lake Lona School.
Some of those pictured are Cy, Willie Floyd,
Nancy Jarvis, Skip Jarvis, Elaine Green, and
Suzanne Tompkins.
The Lake Lona School had just two teachers,
teacher-principal Evelyn Witt and T. J. Geiger,
and it closed its doors after the 1962-63 term.
When Margaret McLeran Owens died recently,
she had been one of the last teachers to teach
at the old Watertown School. Retired Army
major Dickie Hodgkins (CHS 1952) also once
taught there.

Excellent
editorial


Friday's editorial outlining
everyone's need for computer
literacy was right on the mark.
If we are not already computer
lilii,';, we should take a class
to help us.
We should use the Internet
to explore the many facets of
our world now easily accessi-
ble to us. Let's not, however,
pretend that computers and
the Internet are the panaceas
that will suddenly make unmo-
tivated illiterate students sud-
denly transformed into literate
inquisitive searchers for


knowledge.
Every technological
advance has been touted as
the answer to our educational
ills.
In-class movies, overhead
projectors, and classroom TV
have been a few. They have all
fallen short. The latest
advances, the Internet and
computers are now looked at
with great expectations. Don't
hold your breath waiting for
remarkable results.
While both are excellent
tools, they do not motivate the
disinterested, nor do they ben-
efit the illiterate.
Elementary and secondary
education is simply not val-


ued, as it is "common." Why
do college students, at least
* those not financed and forced
into college by their parents,
put forth so much more effort
than there secondary counter-
parts? They do so because the
education they will attain is
rare and therefore of high
value.
When elementary and sec-
ondary education is viewed as
privilege for which one must
put forth effort to maintain,
instead of a legal obligation,
then we will see many more
motivated and consequently
successful students.

Meeting the


Valentine


deadline

f you are a man reading this column on
Sunday and haven't taken time yet to
get a Valentine's Day gift for your sweet-
heart, then you, my friend, are pushing
your luck. You can still purchase or
make a special something that will cause
your special someone's heart to soar, but Big
Ben is ticking and you need to get cracking.
Should you be among the slackers who
have waited to read these words on Monday
afternoon or later, hope is almost gone.
There is a high probability that you will soon
find yourself in deep trouble with your sweet-
ie pie, and all your visions of a nice, cuddly
Valentine's Day evening will vanish like mist
burning off Alligator Lake on a hot summer
day.
Assuming there is still time to salvage this
gift situation, let's look at the options:
The all-time favorite, of course, is red
roses. If you get them to your sweetheart by
mid-morning Valentine's Day, a half-dozen
will probably do the trick. You can even hand
them over yourself and save the delivery fee.
If it's noon or later, the safe bet is to spring
for a full dozen, preferably with baby's
breath, a mushy card. and delivery by
singing driver in a tuxedo. The upside of
flowers is that they're beautiful, romantic
and all women love them. The downside is
they last a week at most. But since
Valentine's Day is only 24 hours, you've still
gotten a deal and averted disaster.
Jewelry is another faithful standby.
Depending on your level of.commitment, the
local jeweler can pull your fat out of the fire
with any number of Valentine's gifts. Rings
are always nice, but if you're not married to
this sweetheart you'd better think long and
hard before buying a ring -unless it's a toe
ring. I can't imagine anyone reading inten-
tions of matrimony into the gift of a ring for
the little piggy that went to market.
Necklaces are very nice and can be as seri-
ous or noncommittal as you want and still
make the little woman happy. Bracelets,
charm bracelets and the charms that go on
them are often overlooked or underrated.
These can be relatively inexpensive or way
up there in cost.
Candy is also a strong choice. Candy-
givers need to be sure that the confection
has strong feminine appeal, though, and is
very attractively packaged. A jumbo bag of
M&Ms and two Milky Way bars delivered in
a plastic grocery bag won't get it done. What
it will do is get you on the couch for the night
... or week.
Stuffed animals can be good Valentine's
Day gifts. The traditional soft and squeezable
Teddy Bear is hard to beat, but there are
other options. Especially popular these days
are the kind that shake, shimmy and sing at
the press of a button. You'll have to decide
without my help whether you get your sweet-
heart a furry bear that croons "Love Me
Tender," or a leather-coated bruin singing
"Born To Be Wild."
Clothing is another favorite, but it can
be a risky choice. Clothes are probably out if
we're talking bulky sweaters and support
hose. Not a lot of romance there. If, on the
other hand, a quick trip to Victoria's Secret
can be squeezed in, you may have hit on a
winner.
The list could go on forever, but the
amount of newsprint and ink does not. The
main thing we men must do is appreciate,
love, respect and protect our sweethearts, be
they wives current or future. Give her break-
fast in bed, do the dishes, care for the chil-
dren, take her to dinner and do everything
else you can imagine to let her know she's
special. Tell her you love her today and for-
ever.
Then on Tuesday, get out there and buy
something for Valentine's Day 2006.

MANDATE
Continued from page 1A


government figuring out -
and often paying for those
services.
However, because the
state's Department of
Community Affairs was given
responsibility of oversight for
the local government's land
- -- use plans and implementing
S- the Growth Management Act,
the counties were given only
so much say on developing
their plans. Each had to be
thoroughly reviewed and
- -approved by the state's
Department of Community
Affairs (DCA).
As part of the act, a primary
component of each county's
S plan had to, establish a
Designated Urban
- Development Area (DUDA),
also called the urban service


line.
The artificial boundary
established a contiguous area
of land that could be devel-
oped either as residential or
commercial property on any
size lot depending on its zon-
ing. Outside of that boundary,
each individual lot had to be a
minimum of five acres or in
some more environmentally
sensitive or protected areas,
10 to 20 acres.
County Manager Dale
Williams said disagreements
between local counties, includ-
ing Columbia, and/the DCA
ensued about what was an
appropriate DUDA.
"In its day it was very hot
politics," he said. "You talk
about getting into downright
arguments, this was it here."
Eventually, Columbia
County adopted its land use
plan in 1987, though it was one
of the last to do so because of


the "severe" disagreements
with the DCA, Williams said.
The plan the county wound
up with had a slightly smaller
DUDA than it had intended,
and was a result of negotia-
tions with the DCA.
The land use plan in
Columbia County and its
DUDA are basically the same
as adopted in 1987, though the
county has grown tremen-
dously since.
In early 2004, at the request
of local builders and real
estate developers, the
Columbia County Commission
unanimously voted to petition
the DCA and request it expand
Columbia County's DUDA
three miles in every direction.
The intention is to open new
land that can be subdivided
into lots smaller than five
acres and meet increased
demand for people who want
affordable housing without


buying a large, expensive
rural tract.
So far, however, the DCA
has denied granting the expan-
sion of the DUDA but negotia-
tions between it and the coun-
ty continue.
Before the Growth
Management Act of 1985,
Williams said instead of a land
use plan the county used a
basic zoning ordinance that
designated uses for the coun-
ty's land, essentially whether it
could be either commercial or
residential.
Longtime County
Commissioner Ron Williams
said the local land use plan is
the "best thing that ever hap-
pened to Columbia County,"
because it has helped to con-
trol growth and maintain the
area's rural integrity. But he,
agrees the local DUDA has
come to a point where it
needs to be expanded.

CHASE

Once stopped, Lanier
refused to follow officers'
directions and exit his vehicle,
according to the report.
"That 10-minute period of
time was extremely dangerous
for all the officers involved, the
suspect as well as other people
traveling along the road,"
Columbia County Sheriff Bill
Gootee said.
"My officers were involved
in this pursuit as backup to
Lake City police officers, and


they did exactly as they had
been trained to do. They did a
great job of stopping and
arresting a reckless and dan-
gerous driver."
Lanier was charged with
fleeing and eluding a law
enforcement officer, reckless
driving with property damage
and aggravated assault on a
law enforcement officer.
Lanier is being held without
bond.
The suspect suffered a cut
over his eye, but refused med-
ical treatment before being
taken to jail, according to a
sheriff's office report.


DEMAND
Continued from page 1A

That will then cause people to
get a lot less house for the
money, she said, because peo-
ple still want to be close to
services such as hospitals,
shopping and schools.
Outside of the DUDA, city
utilities are also unavailable.
Septic and well systems cur-
rently are the only option.
City Manager Joe Cone said
Lake City could provide water
and sewer to a subdivision
with five-acre lots, but the
space between the lots would
make the cost immense, as it


would require long lengths of
underground pipe.
"It's not practical," Cone
said.
But, "if a developer wants to
fit the bill," he said, the city
may do it.
Daniel Crapps, local real
estate broker and developer,
who has done five-acre subdi-
visions, said it isn't an effi-
cient use of land compared to
a subdivision with smaller
lots.
"You are just chewing up all
the land in the county (with
five acres)," he said. "You are
occupying more land, with
100 acres you could put 20
five-acre lots where you


should have put maybe 90
one-acre lots."
Unless the DUDA can be
expanded, Crapps said it
means the "housing market in
Lake City is about to get shut
down."
County Commissioner Ron
Williams said he is glad there
is a mixture of larger rural
lots in Columbia County and
the smaller ones in subdivi-
sions. Because of it, he said,
the county has had controlled
growth.
Though he also recognizes
demand is much higher for
smaller lots.
"If you do a subdivision that
is five-acre lots, you can't have


the $150,000-$200,000 homes
that people want," Williams
said. "The five-acre homes put
many people out of the mar-
ket."
Williams is the commis-
sioner for the county's
District 1, much of which is
rural.
Himself a landowner, he
said he likes the open spaces
in the county and wants them
to remain.
However, Williams said
allowing development around
the perimeter of the current
DUDA is both necessary and
responsible.
"You want to grow from the
inside out."

DEVELOPMENT
Continued from page 1A

Asking for change
The county's land use plan
and the DUDA were adopted
in 1987 after it became a
requirement when the state
Legislature passed the Growth
Management Act of 1985.
Intended to encourage con-
trolled growth and limit urban
sprawl, the county's plan and
its DUDA have not changed
since. Rapid growth inside the
area and right up to existing
boundaries has occurred.
In January 2004, encour-
aged by local builders and
developers, the County
Commission unanimously
decided to petition the
Department of Community
Affairs (DCA) to allow the
county to amend its land-use
plan and expand the DUDA by
three miles in every direction.
So far, however, that petition
has not met with approval
from the DCA, which is
responsible for overseeing
land use in the state.
County Manager Dale
Williams said the request to
extend it in every direction
was a thinly veiled strategic
move, only meant to open the
door for negotiations with the
DCA.
He said the county, local
developers and representa-
tives from the DCA have met
more than once in the past
year and are scheduled to
meet again on Feb. 25.
"This is a follow-up meeting
from a meeting about these
very issues," he said.
Following residential devel-
opment trends, Dale Williams
said the county really only
wants to expand the boundary
to open more development
south and west of Lake City.
East and north of Lake City,
he said much of the land
either can't be developed or is
undesirable because of envi-
ronmental restrictions and a
lack of amenities.
During conversations with
the DCA, Dale Williams said
the state department main-
tains there is still plenty of
land inside the current DUDA
to develop. Much of that land
is either not for sale or envi-
ronmentally sensitive.
Ron Williams said the "state
says the current area inside
the DUDA needs to be com-
pletely developed before we
expand it, but that's impossi-
ble."
According to a DCA report
sent to the county in
September from its Chief of
Comprehensive Planning
Charles Gauthier, "Our objec-
tions relate primarily to the
proliferation of urban sprawl;
environmental suitability and
natural resource protection;
an incomplete analysis of
public facilities and services,
including transportation; and
internal consistencies,"

JENNIFER CHASTEEN/Lake City Reporter
A girl walks down a limestone stairway leading to the head spring at Ichetucknee State Park's north entrance. Officials are
looking for a way to increase the number of subdivisions in the county without harming the surrounding environment.


"Of particular concern is
the location of the proposed
amendment within sensitive
stream-to-sink watersheds
(the Ichetucknee Springs sys-
tem) and the suitability of
these areas for increased den-
sity," he said. "As we have pre-
viously indicated in earlier cor-
respondence, we are dealing
with similar issues in other
parts of the state and would
like to work closely with the
county to address these con-
cerns."

Accounting for a
precious resource
Dale Williams said the
DCA's key sticking point for
allowing more development,
particularly south and south-
west of Lake City, is indeed
one "overriding" issue: The
Ichetucknee Springs trace and
basin.
Only recently, through
water flow studies and flood-
ing caused by hurricanes
Jeanne and Frances, has it
been understood how land use
in and around Lake City can
contribute to the degrading
water quality of the world-
famous springs and river.
Dale Williams said the DCA
is concerned that develop-
ment south of Lake City in the
basin would lead to more sep-
tic tanks and would further
degrade the Ichetucknee.
"I get the feeling that the
DCA would be willing to
extend the DUDA if the issue
of the trace didn't exist," he
said.
He said the county agrees
that the Ichetucknee is an
important local, state and even
national resource, but believes
that the county should not be:
the only one to protect it.
'"The county wants to be as


good as stewards to county
property as possible," Dale
Williams said. "Yet the county
has sole responsibility of pro-
tecting it and we think that is
very unfair."
But the solution, and one
that the DCA may be agree-
able to, he said is to only allow
development in the
Ichetucknee basin that had
public utilities, both water and
sewer. That way, new develop-
ments wouldn't use septic sys-
tems that could leach into the
groundwater and affect the
Ichetucknee trace, nor would
well systems draw down the
available ground water in the
area.
Loye Barnard, vice presi-
dent of the Save Our
Suwannee environmental
group, is concerned with new
development affecting the
Ichetucknee, but said she
would be more agreeable if it
was done with water and
sewer.
"I'm not going to say that we
think that all development
should be stopped in the trace,
because that is not a realistic
thing to do," Barnard said.
"But the thing is, it's going to
take a lot of money to develop
the trace if you are going to do
.it properly."
And all local interests are
well aware of this fact.
Lake City Manager Joe
Cone said as the high nitrate
content in the groundwater in
the Ichetucknee basin contin-
ues to rise, "you can't .put
development down there with
septic tanks or it will continue
to compound the problem."
'The city can take care of
the water," he said. 'We can't
take care of the sewer."
Between the land south of
Lake City and the city's


sewage treatment plant there
is a long hill up State Road 47.
Cone said there would need
to be long sewer lines run up
S.R. 47 into town and the
forces of gravity on the hill
would require several lift sta-
tions to pump the sewage to
the plant, which would be
expensive to install and oper-
ate.
Even if the DCA agrees to
expand the DUDA south. of
Lake City, to do a new subdivi-
sion with water and sewer,
Cone said "somebody's got to
* pay" for the utilities, either the
developer, new property own-
ers or government.
From the city's perspective,
Cone said the taxpayers
shouldn't .be made to pay for
the demand for services
caused by new people moving
to the area.
"We don't front money, we
get our revenue from the citi-
zens of the community," he
said.
Dale Williams said the
county agrees that people
already living here should be
responsible for paying for new
growth.
"The county is going to
want some money to help pay
for the infrastructure needing
to be put in place," he said.
He said a smaller sewage
plant serving areas south of
Lake City may be a possibility,
but would still require some-
one to pay to design, build and
run it. And that is something
that the DCA would also have
to agree to.

Who's going to pay?
Daniel Crapps said he is all
for expanding the DUDA's
boundaries.
"I'm also for the city getting
water and sewer to those


areas so we can protect the
Ichetucknee trace," he said.
Crapps said the solution to
paying for those utilities may
be a mixture of impact fees for
new home-buyers moving into
subdivisions along with
money fronted by the develop-
ers.
"We are willing to be a part
of the solution and bear some
of the cost," he said.
However, because he
believes the Ichetucknee is a
state and national resource,
Crapps said the state could
also "kick in some money" and
perhaps the federal govern-
ment as well.
But while the DCA wants
the county to protect the
Ichetucknee, he said, "They
haven't expressed any desire
at any meeting that I've been
to, to help financially."
Crapps said he may start
calling help from the local
state legislators and say "if you
want to protect the
Ichetucknee trace you need to
plt tip some money."
But that might not be an
easy sell, said State Rep.
Dwight Stansel (D-Wellborn),
whose district includes much
of Columbia County and the
Ichetucknee.
Stansel said he is currently
working on legislation that
would have the state's land
use plan include some "spring
protection language," but isn't
actively seeking funds to help
pay for infrastructure to allow
development in the
Ichetucknee basin.

Because the state's budget
already has large financial
demands, such as paying for
Medicaid and school's Class
Size Initiative, Stansel said get-
ting money to pay for items
like infrastructure in localized
areas with special interests
may be difficult.
"I don't know how much
money is going to be available
for these type projects," he
said.
But even if state or federal
monies were available to pay
for water and sewer for devel-
opments in the Ichetucknee
Springs basin, Stansel said it's
still money coming from tax-
payers and would prefer to see
the funds come from other
sources.
"If we are going to do all this
growing, the growth has to
pay for it," he said.

Lake City couple named Olustee parade grand marshals


By RANDY ROUGHTON
rroughton@lakecityreporter.com
For almost two decades,
Harry and Margaret Wuest
have used their individual tal-
ents to improve their commu-
nity. Olustee Civil War Parade
organizers rewarded the Lake
City couple by naming them
marshals in this year's
parade.
The parade is scheduled to
begin at 10:30 a.m. Feb. 19 on
South Marion Avenue and
continue toward U.S. 90 west.
"It's going to be strange,"
Wuest said. "We've been in a

ing urban growth has been a
constant concern and the
source of contentious debate.
In Columbia County, he
said, "We are fixing to face
these problems other areas
have faced and we don't want
to make the same mistakes
everybody else made."

answer to paying for new
infrastructure, he said, "We
need to step up with innova-
tive ways to allow growth to
pay for itself."
And, when developing new
subdivisions, particularly
large ones, he said sewer and
water are but one cost that
must be considered.
"We are not even talking
about the demand on schools,
roads and fire services, EMS
arid law enforcement," he
said.
With more people demand-
ing more services, Stansel
said somebody has to pay for
the cost of their expansion
and "it just all snowballs into a


lot of parades, but never in
that position. It's definitely
going to be colder. I usually
sit in my motorhome and
watch it.

chose us at first, but people
kept telling us why we should

and cost."
He said by the city, county,
state and developers working
together as a team to figure
out those issues, there may be
ways to make growing less
painful and costly to taxpay-
ers.
"Obviously, we are not
going to keep people from
coming to the area," Stansel
said. ."But it's [new develop-
ment] not going to be done
the same way it has been in
the past or as cheap."
Getting it changed
If negotiations with the
DCA fail and an agreement
for expanding the DUDA can't
be reached, the county and
local developers may have lit-
tle recourse.
Ron Williams said because
the Growth Management Act
was a statewide legislative
action, it would likely be diffi-
cult to fight.
The state Legislature could
approve the expansion of the
county's DUDA through a
special act, but Stansel said all

Margaret, said.

career that featured playing,

such as Lena Horne,
Rosemary Clooney, Vaughn

Wuest retired and moved to

Florida, getting it passed
would be a long shot.
"People have seen the same
things that have happened
elsewhere [after new land was
opened to development]," he
said. "And if you are going to
overrule the DCA and the
Growth Management Act, you
have to have some pretty
good reasons."
Stansel said the act was put
in place for a reason and the
Legislature is not intended to
be responsible for such items.
"If you just want to expand
it [the DUDA] for more hous-
ing, that would be a bitter pill
to sell these legislators,"
Stansel said.
Barnard agrees.
"We don't need to take any-
thing away from the compre-
hensive land use plan," she
said, adding that she believes
the state and local interests
working together amicably is
the best solution.
"And the citizens of
Columbia County need to be
aware of what this impact
could mean in the long run,"
Barnard said.

would at least agree to expand
the county's DUDA by five
miles west of Lake City.
Currently, on U.S. 90 West

commercial development -
the boundary is currently just
beyond Brown Road. Past
that point everything must
still be five acres or more.

Columbia High baseball had eight
seniors in 2004 and Coach Andy
Bennett made the most of it. Columbia
won the District 64A championship
and advanced to the second round of
the playoffs.
A different Columbia opens the sea-
son against Suwannee High at 7 p.m.
Tuesday in Live Oak.
The 2005 Tigers have seven seniors,
but little game experience among
many of them, and there are two jun-
iors and six sophomores on the roster.
"This is a whole new team," Bennett
said. '"We have to come out and com-
pete every day. There are no easy
games for us. No. 1, we haven't done
anything yet, and we have a tough non-


district schedule. Hopefully, that will
make us better."
As for the district opposition,
Bennett expects Paxon School and
Fleming Island High to be the main
obstacles to a CHS repeat.
"Paxon only lost two players and
Fleming Island, for as young as they
were in their first year, they always bat-
tled us. Middleburg beat us last year
and Lee and Forrest are tough, too.
Ridgeview is like us they graduated
eight or nine."
Columbia was the top seed at the
district tournament last year and found
out what an advantage a first-round
bye is, especially when you then have
Michael Kirkman available to start the
semifinal game.

'Lean' Indians look for fast start


By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter.com
"Lean and Mean" is the motto for
the 2005 Fort White High baseball
team, and it's for good reason. "Lean"
refers to the limited numbers on the
Indians' roster, which total 11. The
"mean" is exemplified by a commit-
ment to all-out hustle that would make
Pete Rose smile.
"I'm really excited about this
group," Indians coach Mike Rizzi said.
"It's a good group, of kids. They have
good character about them, they're
fun guys to be around. It's a group that
works hard. They spent a lot of time in
the offseason doing conditioning."
This year's strength will be team


speed, which Rizzi has in abundance
with players like Brandon Wheeler,
Kyle Espenship and Tony Basile run-
ning the bases.
"If we can get 'em coached up real
good about running bases and being
real heads-up base runners, I think
we're going to be able to get guys
moving and put some pressure on the
other team's defense," Rizzi said.
Of the 11 players on the roster, six
have the ability to pitch.
The rotation doesn't have a clear
No. 1 starter right now, although,sen-
ior Dusty Parrish will be called upon
to play that role in the early part of the
season. Parrish led all returning

Timberwolves fall in 10


By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter.comrn
The Lake City Community
College baseball team was
undone by bad baserunning
and poor hitting and pitching
in the late innings on
Saturday, and all conspired
to give Darton College a 7-6
win in 10 innings.
"We ran the bases like a
bad youth league team,"
Timberwolves coach Tom
Clark said, adding that three
freshmen were picked off
during the game.
Leonardo Calderon took
the loss to fall to 0-2 after giv-
ing up the game-winning
home run in the top of the
10th inning.
In the bottom of the
inning, the Wolves had a
two-out rally as Mark Davis
singled and Matt Dallas
walked.
But Avery Johnson struck
out to end the game. It was
one of a season-high eight
strikeouts for Timberwolves
batters on the day.
Lake City jumped out to a
5-3 lead in the fourth inning
after four straight singles.
But one Wolf was thrown
out by the pitcher as he
rounded third base, and
another was picked off sec-


ond base by the Darton
catcher.
In the third inning, after a
Chris Petrie home run, a
player singled and was
picked off first base with no
sign on.
The Timberwolves also
picked up 11 hits in the first
six innings, but only regis-
tered two
hits in the
game s
final four
innings.
"We 'r e
not getting
it done late
Petrie in games
with our
hitting and our bullpen."
Clark said.
It was the third game this
season the Wolves had lost
either in the ninth or 10th
inning.
Duente Heath started and
pitched six innings. He gave
up five runs, but only two
were earned as LCCC coni-
mitted three errors. He
struck out four, walked two
and gave up seven hits -
including two doubles and a
home run.

The White Lake Yacht & Dinner Club plans special Valentine's Day treat


By SUSAN SLOAN
Special to the Reporter
t isn't much of a lake,
and there isn't a yacht to
be seen, but White Lake
Yacht & Dinner Club
might very well be the
most romantic place to spend
Valentine's Day in the area.
Joe Chamberlain, executive
director of Camp Weed and
the Cerveny Conference
Center, along with executive
chef Charles Bowser and
operations manager Daniel
McMillan, were throwing
around ideas of how to show-
case and utilize the beautiful
new dining facility that had
been recently constructed at
Camp Weed.
The three knew that there
was a lack of fine dining
opportunities in the area and
thought that they might just
be able to fill that niche.
Varn Dining Hall, named
for Wil and Betty Jean Varn, is
all wood and glass and over-
looks White Lake, in keeping
with its rustic setting.
The area outside the dining
hall also overlooks the lake
and its roomy proportions
make it perfect for outdoor
wedding receptions or other
events.
Camp Weed already had
the services of Bowser, a tal-
ented and creative chef whose
background in private club
management made him a nat-
ural for planning a sophisticat-
ed dinner event.
With all the necessary com-
ponents in place, it was only a
small step to come up with the
idea of a dinner club.
Camp Weed and Cerveny
Conference Center, owned
and operated by the Episcopal
Diocese of Florida, is located
on White Lake off of U.S. 90,
about 5 miles west of County
Road 137.
With tongue in cheek, the
name White Lake Yacht &
Dinner Club was suggested
and the name seemed befit-
ting for the concept they had
in mind.
The concept was developed
to hold monthly dinners fea-
turing an elegant meal and
some type of program.
One month might feature
an art exhibit, the next a musi-
cal presentation, and yet
another presentation by a
noted speaker.
A visiting chef might be
invited to join forces with
Bowser to prepare the meal.
Servers would come from
community service organiza-
tions that would be trained in
white-glove service.
Gratuity would be con-
tributed to the service organi-
zation for their participation.'


White Lake Yacht & Dinner
Club held its inaugural event
on Jan. 21.
Live Oak and Lake City
Chambers of Commerce were
sent invitations, as were many
other members of the com-
munity.
Thinking that a turnout of
50 would be phenomenal, the
85 guests who actually attend-
ed were a pleasant surprise. It
looks like the community was
ready for this type of dining
experience.
The evening's servers from
the Interact Club at Suwannee
High School did a fine job,
and the evening's entertain-
ment, an art exhibit by local
artist Jennifer Dunaway, was
well received.
And of course, the food was
magnificent.
Word of the how enjoyable
the evening was quickly
spread, and the Valentine's
Day dinner is completely
booked with 130 advance
reservations.
Bowser has planned an ele-
gant dinner menu featuring
lobster bisque with a heart
shaped cheval crouton, fresh
greens and garden vegetable
salad served with a fresh
herbed champagne vinai-
grette, and a' choice of
chateaubriand for One (roast-
ed medallions of filet of beef
served on a sour dough heart
.shaped, crouton and drizzled
with a cabernet sauvignon
'infused demi glaze). served
with fresh steamed broccoli,
cauliflower, asparagus and
sauce b6arnaise or boursin
stuffed chicken breast (chick-
en breast stuffed with boursin
cheese, trumpet mushrooms,
applewood cured bacon and a
light buttered Madeira wine
cream sauce) served with
fresh steamed asparagus.
Both entrees will be served
with creamed horseradish
mashed potatoes and for
dessert, guests will be treated
to heart-shaped chocolate
truffles with a raspberry
coulis and chocolate covered
strawberries.
Although the facility does
not hold a liquor license,
guests are free to bring their
own wine or spirits with
appropriate setups provided
by the club.
The cocktail hour from 6-7
p.m. will be accompanied by
chef's choice of hors d'oeu-
vres and light piano music.
Dinner follows with enter-
tainment by vocalist Marcia
Norris.
The servers for the
evening, ADK Teachers
Sorority, are from Live Oak.
And while Valentine's Day
is customarily an evening for

ABOVE: Charles Bowser, executive chef at the White Lake Yacht & Dinner Club, shows off a sample of what's in store for
guests on Valentine's Day. The club, located in the new dining facility at Camp Weed in Live Oak, has been booked for the
romantic holiday with 140 reservations. BELOW: The Valentine's Day dinner will also iniclude a gourmet dessert like the one
Bowser created'below.


couples to celebrate their
love, reservations indicate
that today's lovers want to
share the evening with
friends, as many of the reser-.
vations are for tables of four,
six or eight.
Although most of the reser-
vations have come from Live
Oak residents, many Lake
City and even Jacksonville
couples have reserved their
tables for the event.
Each month's dinner will
feature different and unique
menus and themes, but for
this Valentine's Day dinner,
romance will be the, focus.
The lights will be turned low,
candles will light the tables,
and the table linens will be the
traditional red and white of
Valentine's Day.
But as Bowser said, '"The
presentation of the food will
be the real centerpiece."
Guests are required to
dress appropriately (coats and
ties for the men) making for
an evening that can compete
with any of the larger cities
throughout Florida.
As it is too late to take
advantage of this evening, you
may want to opt instead for
treating your Valentine to
next month's dinner that is


scheduled for Mlarch 11.
Bowser has planned anoth-
er sumptuous meal, featuring
as an appetizer, Testa's
Famous Steamed Whole
Artichoke with Maitre d'
Butter (a whole artichoke,
steamed tender and- served
with a potent maitre d' butter
for dipping the leaves), mari-
nated garden vegetable salad
marinated in sweet raspberry
vinaigrette and presented in a
radicchio and Belgian endive
flower, chef's choice of sorbet,
with a choice of Parmesan,
Lobster and Baby Shrimp
Encrusted Snapper, (filet of
red snapper dredged through
ciabatta bread crumbs, butter-
milk, parmesan cheese, diced
lobster and baby shrimp,
baked and served over a
sauce DeJonge) or Steak
Dianne (medallions of beef,
sauteed in butter, shallots,
garlic, brandy with Portobello
and shitake mushrooms, veal
demi-glace and cream sher-
ry) both served with gratin
dauphinois (sliced potatoes
baked in heavy cream, ,garlic
and shallots and topped with
gruyere cheese) roasted wild
mushroom ragout (wild
mushroom variety, roasted in
extra virgin olive oil, with gar-


lic, shallots, rosemary and
thyme) and romano cheese
Rolls. Dessert will be frozen
orange with a gran marnier
cream filling with a lime and
vanilla yogurt sauce.
Reservations can be made
by calling Camp Weed at 364-
5250, or by email at front-
desk@campweed.org.
The cost of dinner is $35
per person, which covers the


meal, gratuity and entertain-
ment. As word of this unique
dinner format travels, reser-
vations will become harder to
obtain, so reserve early and
check the Web site www.cam-
pweed.org for the dates and
menus for future dinners, as
well as more information
about the other facilities avail-
able at Camp Weed and
Cerveny Conference Center.

By PAULA CIFUENTES
LCCC professor of mathematics

The Math and Science
Teacher (MaST) Project is
well under way at Lake City
Community College (LCCC).
This grant-funded program is
chang-
ing how
future
teachers
learn
a n d
What
i -' 4 methods
they will
use dur-
ing their
Paula Cifuentes careers
teaching
children. Through. increased
teacher/student interaction,
including "inquiry-based"
learning activities, students
are more engaged in their
learning process. MaST par-
ticipants, as part of their
degree seeking require-
ments, enroll in a cohort com-
prised of three courses, edu-
cation, math and biology team
taught by Tracy Hickman,
Paula Cifuentes, and Dr. John
Rowe. Students in the cohort
use the latest wireless, hand-
held computers to help them


understand and use technolo-
gy when they become teach-
ers. By working and learning
together as a group, this
cohort of students have the
opportunity to share their
ideas, talents and other abili-
ties to provide a richer learn-
ing environment.
Hickman, associate profes-
sor of education, has been a
driving force of the MaST
Project and her dedication to
educating students is reflect-
ed in the progress the MaST
Project has made. She recruit-
ed and organized the LCCC
Future Teachers: Club and
coordinated a fall literacy
drive where over 300 books
were donated' to Niblack
Elementary School students
so they could begin their own
personal library at home.
Hickman has the MaST
Project Web site up and run-
ning for students to seek
advice from area profession-
als through a discussion
board as well as Internet links
with resources for future
teachers. She is also teach-
ing one of the three core
MaST Project cohort classes,
where students will be
exposed to various teaching
strategies taught by Hickman


during class meetings in an
effort to expose future educa-
tors to inquiry-based, hands-
on learning with increased
teacher-student interaction.
Cohort members will also use
the HP Tablet PCs (donated
by Hewlett Packard to LCCC
as part of a grant) in the pub-
lic school setting while com-
pleting their 20 hours of field
experience, a required com-
ponent of the course. MaST
cohort members use the PCs
to work with individual
and/or small groups of stu-
dents on various curricula as
directed by the classroom
teacher, thus shaping technol-
ogy integration with student
learning.
Cifuentes, associate profes-
sor of mathematics, is teach-
ing the math cohort class
which will cover not only
math, but also critical think-
ing skills and logic. Cifuentes
will also use a Hewlett
Packard Tablet PC to show
presentations on these topics
as well as a hands-on inquiry


based approach to learning.
Rowe, associate professor
of science, is teaching the
biology cohort course this
spring. He plans to pattern
biological principles in an
aquatic environment, which
allows students to identify and
study biological facts in such
a way that they can be effi-
ciently demonstrated in a
classroom with little budget-
ary demands. Rowe's course
will also provide additional
ideas on inquiry-based learn-
ing activities that can be
incorporated in a classroom
setting.
Another component of the:
MaST project is LCCC's part-
nership with the University of
Florida (UF) and its MaST
Project team member there,
Thomasenia Adams, associate
professor, School of Teaching
and Learning at UE As the col-
lege strengthens its relation-
ship with the University of
Florida, it plans to develop an
articulation agreement with
the UF College of Education


that will provide University of
Florida courses on the LCCC
campus.
In the future, team members
of the MaST Project and Lake
City Community College
aspire to provide the latest
teaching techniques for
prospective teachers so they
can provide future generations
in this area with the best possi-
ble.instruction and education,
especially in the areas of math-
ematics and science.
In this age of technology,
schools must create lifelong
learners so they can contribute
positively to society and flour-
ish in the modern world.
LCCC is confident that it can
make a difference in the lives
of its students and the commu-
nities it serves.

Jesus name, Some lights are red,
some lights are blue, Not even my

think it is strange, that we are still
together, but God is my witness,
that our love will last forever. You.
have stuck with me through the

very glad. Happy Valentine's Day

has been great, bec:,u~c
God blessed me with you,

to. Though it started a little rough,
and I made a little fuss, I am glad
that you stayed, and now I got it
made. What God has joined togeth-
er, will always last forever, for this I
believe, that God is real pleased.
Marriage should be respected by,all,
and any other way is just a gieat
fall, if you live together without
marriage, then God said you will
surely perish. If you love God like
he loved you, then you will live life
like he wants you to. Thank you for
your kindness, Thank you for your
love, Thank you for your faithful-
ness, To almighty God above.

Local businesses stay busy for romantic holiday


By ASHLEY CISNEROS
acisneros@lakecityreporter.com

Cupid isn't the only one
working hard on Valentine's
Day.
Local businesses have been
working to make Monday spe-
cial for sweethearts all over
the county.
"This year is a different situ-
ation because Valentine's Day
falls on a Monday so we have
to change the way we prepare
for it, said April Bennett,
manager of Lake City Florist.
With holidays like Mother's
Day, it always falls on a
! Sunday, giving the shop a
week to prepare, she
explained.
The shop's staff tried to get
ahead of last-minute shoppers,
mostly men, who will come in
Monday, Bennett said.
"You don't want angry men
Calling you because their
wives won't speak to them, so
we have to make sure we can
I help them and make everyone
r. happy," she said.
The highest selling flower
at the business has been
roses.
The shop offers them in
almost every color including
red, lavender, yellow, pink,

peach, white, orange aid two-
tones, Bennett said.
Valentine's Day for the staff
at Lake City Florist means
good business, but it also
means time away from their


families.
"Our kids know that
Valentine's Day means we will
be working a lot, and they
won't see much of us until it is
over," she said.


Massage Therapy .owner
Sylvia Douglas has sold a lot of
gift certificates for the holiday.
"Christmas is our busiest
time, but business is going
great for Valentine's Day," she


said.
She called the holiday a
time for "sweethearts."
Classy Baskets & Gifts
owner Lissie McCauley also
has been gearing up for


Valentine's Day.
"We have been putting
items together with 'I Love
You' themed items and stock-
ing up for our customers," she
said.
"Last week, I already start-
ed getting orders, and I also
have a roomful of baskets
ready for the big day."
For McCauley, the busiest
time of the year is Christmas
with Mother's Day a close sec-
ond.
"I have had a lot of ladies
come in to buy baskets for
their husbands filled with
goodies and even some in
camouflage," she said.
"It a day to show someone
special how much you care,"
McCauley said.
Karen Green, owner of
GeGee's Studio said her serv-
ices are uniquely customized
for each customer she has.
"I have sold gift certificates
for different services includ-
ing massages and skin care,"
she said.
"I think Valentine's Day is
about expressing yourself and
what you feel in your heart for
someone special," she said.
"It's important to show how
much you care in this fast-
paced world."

House Plan of the Week


A vaulted living room is at the
core of the Burnham,. a ranch-style
home with a neoclassical flavor.
The front facade has a simple bold
symmetry. Four sleek columns orna-
mented with classic crown molding
frame the front entry. Sidelights and
wide, multipaned windows flank the
door, creating a foyer awash with light.
From the foyer, you can step
directly into the vaulted living room, or
follow hallways to the right or left. A
large gas fireplace serves as a central
focal point in the living room. Wide
windows fill most of the wall on both
sides of the fireplace.
Bay windows expand the large
vaulted dining room, which is linked to
the living room and totally open to the
kitchen. A long, raised, wraparound
eating bar defines the kitchen, and
makes a great place for'doing home-
work, snacking, or chatting with who-
ever is working in the kitchen.
Other kitchen amenities include a
large work island and an extra-large
walk-in pantry. The nearby utility
room is also above average in size, and
has a built-in utility sink. This pass-
through space provides direct access to
the deep three-car garage, plus a win-
dow-bright folding area that makes an
ideal location for a sewing machine.
High, arched windows grace the
front rooms to the right and left of the
front door. These vaulted rooms could
be bedrooms, a home office, craft
room; guest room, study, or you-name-
it. The choice is yours. Another bed-
room is to the left, along with a good-
sized bathroom.
The Bumham's master suite
boasts a huge walk-in closet and direct
patio access, plus a luxurious private
bathroom. Features here include dual
vanity, private toilet and walk-in show-
er.

scaled floor plans, elevations, section
