Whether a visitor is looking
for homemade candles, tire
swings or anything in
between, he or she can find it
at the Olustee Festival in
downtown Lake City.
More than 100 booths filled
Olustee Park with attractions
ranging from fresh almonds to
beautiful jewelry.
Perhaps one of the most
amusing booths is "The
Puppet Farm" of Kerry'
Dortch, a puppet-maker from
fla. Ga.
As children gather around
his booth, the magic comes
alive as his main puppet.
Freddy. steals the show.
"Freddy. wake up," Dortch
said to the tluffy white puppet.
"Ther: are children her- to
see you.
The children standing near
the booth giggle at the sight of
Freddy and his bright visor.
Disco music booms out of a
radio as the first stanzas of the
Bee Gees' "Stayin Alive"
pierces the crisp February air.
Freddy instantly starts
dancing to the beat, showing
off moves that would make
John Travolta smile.
After his routine, Freddy
spits out his turquoise pacifier
and a young observer squeals
to retrieve it and return it to
Freddy.
Dortch calls Freddy a
stinkpott" and introduces
Eddie, Freddy's brother who
sits on a tractor, and Betty.
their sister who relaxes on a
battery-operated rocking
chair.
Their brother, Teddy, does-
n't make an appearance as he
is locked in the "puppet poop-
er" because of indulging in too
much cattish ice cream.
Dortch whispers to the chil-
dren.
The kids love it.

Festival in Olustee Park Friday afternoon.

A crowd of more than 200 gath-
ered at the 2005 Olustee Festival
opening ceremony Friday after-
noon.
The crowd was at the park for the
opening ceremony to kick-off the
27th Annual Olustee Battle Festival
and pay homage to troops who lost
their lives 141 years ago at the
Battle of Olustee in Baker County.
The smiles that most people car-
ried on their faces, replaced the
umbrellas that were prevalent in
last year's rain-plagued festival.
However, this year's sunshine
and good weather also seemed to
bring out positive attitudes in the
people attending the festivities.
"So far the festival has been
absolutely wonderful," said Dennis
Roberts. Blue Grey Army
Commanding General. "The key
thing to this event is the weather
and that really brings up the partic-
ipation and it looks like it's going to
be a record crowd with a lot of
money generated this year."
As commanding general, Roberts
officially started this year's battle
festival by thanking sponsors and
recognizing local elected officials
and dignitaries who were attending
the event.
Amber Bailey. the 2005 Miss
Olustee pageant winner, was one of
the local dignitaries on stage with
Roberts and other officials. She said
she was excited to take part in the
festival's opening ceremonies.
"I'm so excited because my whole
life I've been a spectator and this is
the first year I've gotten to partici-
pate." she said.
In addition to being recognized

during the opening ceremonies.
Bailey said she was looking forward
to participating in today's parade.
"I'm looking forward to being
able to wave at all the little girls
because a-s a little girl I loved watch-
ing all the beauty queens drive
past," she said. "'Tve been coming to
the Olustee Battle Festival since as
long as I've been able to remem-
ber."
Festival organizers hoped that
pleasant memories would be in
store for other festival-goers as well.
"I think this year's festival is
going to be remembered for the
nice weather and big crowds after
we've had some really rough years,"
Roberts said. "We always try to tie
in a patriotic theme to the festival."

The rigors of war and mem-
ory of the soldiers who fought
fervently on both sides during
the Battle of Olustee were rec-
ognized in memorial cere-
monies Friday morning.
At Oaklawn Cemetery off
Matthew Street, the Olustee
Battle Festival organizers, the
Blue-Grey Arny. held its
annual Civil War Memorial
Service, followed immediately
by a Confederate Memorial
Service by the Sons of
Confederate Veterans Battle

In a mixture of mild sun and
very cool shade, about 70 peo-
ple, including many reenac-
tors and %women dressed in
period clothing, gathered
around a flagpole in the center
of the cemetery.
Following an introduction
by Dr. Alfonso Levy. who
organized the Blue-Grey
Army's portion of the event.
the Rev. Robert Davis led a
prayer asking that "we
remember that freedom is not
free, that it costs lives."
David F. Eversole, with the
Sons of Confederate Veterans.
led the Pledge of Allegiance.
followed by the official salute
to the Confederate flag. The
graves of about 100l( unknown
soldiers who are buried at the
cemetery though some are
believed to have been Union
were all marked with the
"Stars and Bars."
Featured speaker Columbia
County- Judge Tom Coleman,
introduced by Lake City
Mayor Ray Kirkland, set the
tone for the ceremony.
"We are not here today to
celebrate war." Coleman
began. "War is never to be cel-
ebrated."
The judge spoke on how
the dead are often lost and for-
gotten in the confusion of bat-
tle. but that no less important

Mock hospital provides glimpse of Civil War medical treatment


By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter.com
The hospital steward doesn't
know a thing about germs, and
that probably killed some
patients.
Ether is used for anesthesia
before surgery, and the
patients are giving something
to bite down on before being
worked on but not a bullet, as
the saying goes. .I
The hospital itself is run
from a hotel, private home or a
church, with beds and equip-
ment crammed in wherever
possible, because wounded
soldiers have nowhere else to
go.
This is the reality of a gener-


al hospital at a town near a Civil
War battle.
Today, living history enthu-
siasts try to teach that reality to
those interested. At the
Columbia County Historical
Museum, as best an interpreta-
tion of a general hospital as
possible has been set up for
visitors to see what medical
care was like during the Civil
War.
Tim and Carole Hollamby, of
Kissimmee, are experts on the
subject, with Tim knowledge-
.able on the Civil War and
Carole focusing on medical
history.
Both traveled from central
Florida to Lake City for the
Olustee Battle Festival and


Reenactment to set up a mock
hospital in the museum.
The Hollambys, who travel
all over Florida for reenact-
ments, came to Olustee last
year as spectators.
They enjoyed the displays
so much, they asked Pat
McAlhany, who has been
involved with Olustee and the
museum for years, if they
could help out in any way.
McAlhany, a living history buff
herself, told them they were
more than welcome.
"She's the reason why we're
doing it," Tim Hollamby said.
But McAlhany isn't the only
reason. The Hollambys lead
regular lives at their home
near Orlando. Tim is a bus


driver for Disney, and Carole is
a registered respiratory thera-
pist. Those may be their day
jobs, but living history is their
passion.
"I like being able to educate
people about what really hap-
pened," Carole Hollamby said.
She makes most of her own
clothes for reenactments and
reads personal accounts of the
time to keep everything accu-
rate.
Tim Hollamby just looks
into his personal history to
remake Civil War scenes.
Tim's great-great-uncle and
great-great-grandfather both
served in the war for the
Confederacy and fought at the
Battle of Gettysburg.


Having mustered out of
South Georgia, Tim
Hollamby's family members
basically marched from
Georgia to Pennsylvania, stop-
ping at skirmishes along the
way until they got to
Gettysburg.
After the battle that inspired
the famous address,
Hollamby's family members
fought for a bit in the western
theater of the war, but ulti-
mately fulfilled somethingg few
Civil War soldiers were ,'abl 'to
accomplish- theycamehome.
Many of the soldiers who
never saw their families again
had their last days at hospitals
like the one the Hollambys are
recreating.


Though the war was bloody,
Tim Hollamby said "for each
soldier who died in battle, two
died of disease."
Tim Hollamby said condi-
tions during the war, for sol-
diers and on the homefront,
were not as they are romanti-
cized on film.
"It sure wasn't 'Gone With
the Wind,'" he said.
Hospitals also didn't discrim-
inate. No matter where- they
nurses. doctors and surgkois
treated all wou nded ,soldiers
the same, not caring about the
color of their uniforms.
"They wouldn't have said
'Oh, you're a Yank, you're a
Rebel,"' she said.

The driver of a 1999
Chevrolet died after the car
erupted in flames on 1-10,
according to a Florida
Highway Patrol press
release. The car was travel-
ing west on 1-10, near mile

The car came to a rest
upright in the eastbound
lanes, facing east when it
erupted into flames, accord-
ing to the report. Baker
County EMS arrived on the
scene, but attempts to rescue

Santa Fe Community
College Police are searching
for a man suspected of trying
to carjack a female student's
vehicle Friday morning.
According to a news
release, a black male, about
19 years old and 6 feet tall,
approached a female student
who was entering her
Mercedes. The suspect
asked the student for the
time and then told the stu-
dent she had a flat tire. When
the student got out of her
car, the suspect attempted to
put the car in gear.
SFCC officer Bill Ash
noticed the situation and,
assuming it was a heated
discussion, approached in
his marked car. Once Ash
was about 10 feet away, the
suspect exited the car and
ran in the direction of Santa
Fe Oaks apartments, 8203
NW 31 Ave., Gainesville.


The suspect was last seen
wearing a black stocking cap,
black sweatshirt, dark pair of
shorts with a vertical white
stripe, white gloves and a
gold watch, according to the
release.

makes




us proud

t's difficult to balance top-notch
school grades and extra-curricular
activities. Throw sports into the mix
and a teenager's schedule fills up
quickly. Even the most-organized
youths can struggle balancing everything.
But not Bryan Taylor of Fort White..
The 18-year-old does it all without a hic-
cup. No problem.
That same collected demeanor may
allow him to fly fighter jets for the Air
Force someday.
Taylor is headed to the United States Air
Force' Academy, his appointment
announced earlier this week amid cheers
and congratulations from his family and
the educational community at Fort White
High School.
We salute him as well, proud to have a
Columbia Countian headed to Colorado
Springs as a member of the academy's
Class of 2009. He is one of only 1,200 from
the entire country to be selected for the
honor of attendance.
Gaining an appointment to any of our
country's military academies is a very
important and unique accomplishment. It's
difficult. A focused scrutiny is placed on
every aspect of the student who applies.
Inspecting officials look at more than good
grades, although top academic marks are a
requirement.
They want the total person a good citi-
zen, a good athlete, a smart, community-
minded individual.
The military academies want the best
well-rounded students that America has to
offer. The Air Force has found one of our
country's future military leaders in Fort
White's Bryan Taylor.



Today is Saturday, Feb. 19, the 50th day-
of 2005. There are 315 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:

On Feb. 19, 1945, during World War II,
some 30,000 U.S. Marines landed on Iwo
Jima, where they bigaII a monthlong battle
to seize control of the 1;inid from Japanese
forces.

On this date:

In 1803, Congr'-.. voted to accept Ohio's
borders and crJntituiioii.
In 1807, former Vice President Aaron
Burr was arrested in Alabama. (He was
subsequently tried for treason and acquit-
ted.)
In 1846, the Texas state government was
formally installed in Austin.
In 1878, Thomas Edison received a
patent for his phonograph.
In 1881, Kansas became the first state to
prohibit all alcoholic beverages.
In 1942, President Roosevelt signed an
executive order giving the military the
authority to relocate and intern Japanese-
Americans as well as Japanese nationals liv-
ing in the United States.
In 1942, about 150 Japanese warplanes
attacked the Australian city of Darwin. .
In 1963, the Soviet Union informed
President Kennedy it would withdraw "sev-
eral thousand" of an estimated 17,000


Soviet troops in Cuba.

Are you ordained?


S hen I was a lad of 16 years, I
#J L was called by the leaders of
the Quitman, Ga., congrega-
W W tion to come and preach for
SV them. The appointment was
just for Sunday morning. I had tried to preach
three times, and the unanimous report was all
three times was rather trying! For some
unknown reason I felt that I was the state evan-
gelist. At the time of this calling I was enrolled
as a junior student in Dasher Bible School, a
small private school in southern Georgia.
I arrived in Quitman early. There were just
two buses a day and the first was very early in
the morning. I found out that carrying a huge
Bible was very powerful. No one wanted to sit
by me on the bus. I was walking the sidewalk,
rehearsing the lesson to be presented. A rather
overstuffed English-style lady approached me
from the opposite direction. She demanded
most of the sidewalk on her own, so I eased
into the hedge to let her pass. Then she saw
the oversized family Bible in my hand.
"What are you doing in. Our city," she
exclaimed, recognizing me as a stranger.
"I'm here to preach the gospel of Christ," I
replied, almost in a shout.
She pulled her monocle to the full extent of
the chain, and peering through the heavy glass
with an enlarged eye, she said in a disdainful
English tone, "Are you ordained?"
I can more fully understand her surprise at
hearing a young boy claim to be a preacher,
having spent some time in the British Isles. A
minister .in England would be a man of great.
experience, having been through a seminary
and serving a number of years as an intern.
I really didn't know how to answer the ques-
tion because I really didn't know exactly what
she meant. Getting the drift of her words, I
answered in a strong and strident voice,
"Ma'am, anyone that has so much truth down
them, that they can't keep it down them, is
ORDAINED!"
Did I stumble on a truth that needs to be
taken out of mothballs and put back into circu-
lation? Whatever truth you know, are you not
ordained to say it, to teach it, to live it? Take the
kid in school when invited to cheat on a test. If
he knows and believes that cheating is just
another way of lying and that lying is wrong,
can he not so state it like -"I don't believe in
cheating." When tempted to steal by a fellow
student, is he not authorized to make his stand
for the truth that he knows? If the truth itself
does not ORDAIN one to stand for it and live it,
what does?
We have just forgotten to ordain everybody.
We ordain elders and dedicate preachers and
receive deacons; but the average believer, the
ordinary disciple, we leave without a mission.
A number of years ago, while living in
Northern Ireland, -I wrote a poem about two
trees. Now is a good time to relate it.
"About the year our Lord was born, two little


EXUM


trees began to sprout. Said one to the other,
when we grow up I wonder how we'll come out.
Oh, I'm going to grow tall and straight and
point all men to God; what greater ambition
could one expect from the product of the sod?
So they both began to grow with the heavens
as their aim; they smiled at all the sunshine
and licked up all the rain. They drank in all the
dew that fell and the snow of many years, sent
them soaring to the skies, far above their
peers. Thus when 30 summers passed and the
people came their way; they would stop and
point and look and the trees could hear them
say What fine trees, so straight and true, they
point to the sublime, just look at those leafy
branches too, they must pray all the time.
Now the trees rejoiced in reaching their
goals, and shook hands on a job well done; for
now they were first-class winners of souls, and
they just leaned back in the sun. Suddenly they
heard from the forest glen, the rumble of dan-
ger the footsteps of men. With axes and chains
they were searching the hill, for one special
tree to be cut for the mill. They stopped at the
foot of the youngest tree he cried out in hor-
ror, 0 God not me; yet hardly before he had fin-
ished this part, he felt an ax cut deep into his
heart. He fell to the earth with a terrible sound.
It felt so strange to be prone on the ground.
No longer a place with pride on the hill, the
Lord sternly whispered, little tree, be still.
They made out of him a fishing boat and
launched him in a nearby sea. He couldn't
understand it until a man came from Galilee.
The crowds were so vast. they all wanted to
hear the message of truth, they pressed to get
near. Then the master of all, turned his head to
the sea, and with a great shout said, bring the
boat to me.
For the first time the big stately tree began
to see good in the tragedy. For the axe and the
chains was only the plan, to root out ambition
and bring in the man. So often the Master
would leave the shore and from the little ship
implore, touching the hearts of many a sinner,
the cut down tree had become a soul-winner.
Oh, what happened to the other tree you
ask? It was cut down for a different task.
Strange this tree was destined to be, the Old
Rugged Cross throughout eternity."

OLUSTEE FEST


'__ Ears' become a festival staple


Opening performance
James Chasteen of Lake City sings the national anthem at
the Olustee Battle Festival opening ceremony at Olustee
Park Friday afternoon. Crowds were met with blue skies and
sunshine.


By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.com
Some people claim it's the
only reason they go to the
Olustee Battle Festival and for
many others its at least good
motivation.
Ever since the first festival
in 1978, Lake City's Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter Day
Saints has been responsible
for satisfying everyone's need
for that deep-fried doughy, cin-
namon and sugar-coated treat:
The Elephant Ear.
"Who doesn't eat elephant
ears when they go to the festi-
val?," said festival goer Alisha
Brunken of Wellborn as she
ate her own on Friday. "You
have to have elephant ears."
Kirk Webster,. one of the
many church volunteers help-
ing to make the $2 ears, said
some people come back every
year to get one.
"It's very tasty," he said. "It's
warm, it's sweet, it's got a nice
texture. People love it."
Church member Mark
Duren, who stood inside a
flour-strewn trailer Friday
preparing the yeast dough for
frying in vegetable oil, has
been helping make the treat
for the church since the begin-
ning.
Duren said the recipe for
the ears came" from church

val in downtown Lake City Friday afternoon. The elephant

members in the late 1970s and
became a product to sell for
fundraising to build church
buildings. But now it is being
used to help fund the church's
youth programs.
"It's a way to help and get
together and enjoy working
together," he said.
In the early years, Duren
said the dough was cranked
by hand to flatten it out into
the elephant ear shape for
which it gets its name.
But since the church has
purchased a machine automat-


100 vendors at this year's

ically presses the dough, even
though the rollers have taken
off the finger tips of two peo-
ple over the years. Webster
said the machine was definite-
ly thoroughly cleaned before
being put back in service and
both people's finger tips were
reattached.
"We can't seem to talk those
two (people) into working the
machine anymore though,"
Duren said.
Outside the trailer Friday,
other church volunteers were
busy preparing the dough and


frying it up before sending it
to be coated with sugar and
cinnamon.
Duren's 6-year-old son
Bryce was busy making sure
everyone around the festival
knew about the elephant ears,
constantly yelling "Come get
your nice, hot elephant ears ...
$2 a piece."
Bryce said he likes the ears
too, "because they are sugary
and cinnamony"
"He's our marketing direc-
tor," Webster joked. "He's
starting out young."
It wasn't clear whether
Bryce's low-tech advertising
was responsible, but plenty of
people continued to line up
Friday for an elephant ear.
Joshua Spradley, 15, of Lake
City, joined his mom Natasha
and brother Jacob, 8, to get
theirs.
"We eat them every year,"
Joshua said. "That's the only
reason we come."
Natasha said enjoying the
ears is something she's passed
down from her own youth.
"When I was a child we
came and had them," she said.
"It's was my favorite thing so
we've kind of done the same."
When asked why he likes
the elephant ears, Joshua's
answer was simple, but suffi-
cient.
"They're good."


Publix lets their customers eat cake


- lots of it


By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter.com
Publix customers had a
hard time maneuvering their
carts in the supermarket's
lobby area Friday morning.
The obstacle in their way?
A giant cake.
The double-layer, eight-
sheet cake serves about 400
people and is an Olustee tra-
dition. Weezie Huelskamp, of
the Blue-Grey Army, handed
:,uit pieces of the cake at the
'gazebo in thie courthouse -
square after the Olustee
Festival's opening cere-
monies.
Made of yellow cake and
buttercream, the red, white
and blue dessert is decorated
to honor American veterans.
The cake features two large,
yellow "support our troops"
ribbons and a list of all wars -
with dates in which
Americans fought.
Huelskamp said the cake
has a different theme every
year, but because the United
States is currently involved
with a war, she thought this
year's cake sends an appro-
priate message.
'"The main thing was hon-
oring the veterans," she said.
Huelskamp had the idea of
having a veteran-themed
cake, but cake decorator
Melissa Stewart and bakery


manager Chris Green assist-
ed in the design. Planning
began two Weeks ago, culmi-
nating Friday at 6:30 a.m.,
when Stewart and Green
began putting the cake
together.
The last piece of frosting
was added at 10 a.m. At 10:30
a.m., the cake was picked up
by George Hudson, of
Rountree-Moore Ford
Lincoln Mercury, in a Ford
panel van and driven to the
gazebo.
Htielskamp estimated the
cake was worth about $1,000,
factofrig' in' the price of the
ingredients and Stewart and
Green's labor and time.
County Commissioner
Dewey Weaver covered the
cost of the ingredients and
Publix donated the labor and
time involved.
Publix has been involved
with making the Olustee cake
since 1982. Though Green
began the tradition "four
cakes ago," Huelskamp said,
Stewart has been involved for
12 or 13 years.
Two years ago, Publix bak-
ery employees assisted in
making a cake for Dolly
Barracca, a longtime Olustee
volunteer and member of the
Blue-Grey Army. Barracca
died Dec. 4. This year's
Olustee festival is dedicated
to her memory.


JASMINE RANGEL/Lake City Reporter
Publix employees Melissa Stewart and Chris Green put the finishing touches of icing on this year's Olustee cake in the
supermarket's lobby. The yellow cake is decorated in red, white and blue to honor American veterans and served about 400
people.

Boys Summit held to give insight to local males


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

The insight local youths
may need to keep legal issues
from becoming a negative
part of their lives can come
from many sources.
Friday morning, the insight
came from local law enforce-
ment as part of an inaugural
Boys Summit.
The Boys Summit, which
modeled after a similar event
for local girls, was held at the
Cornerstone Community
Church with 25 local youths
attending.
Lake City Police
Department Capt. Gary
Laxton said he believed the
Lake City Chapter of the
Altrusa International Club has
sponsored a Girls Summit for
years and some of its mem-
bers suggested holding a
local Boys Summit.
"I agreed with them and we
decided this year to do it and
see what happens," he said.
"I'm very p':3.ased with the
turnout and we're learning as
we go."
The Boys Summit was a
series of lectures by law
enforcement officers and
other coml'nl u ity leaders. The
groups discussed a variety of
issues including domestic vio-
lence, sexual situations, inap-
propriate situations at schools
and alcohol and drug usage.
'This group is not a bad
group of young men from the

Friday's Boys Summit at Cornerstone Community Church. More than 20 boys attended the


inaugural event.
schools, but it's a group that's
been identified as being on
the verge and maybe they just
need to be refocused a bit,"
Laxton said. 'This is just an
effort on our part to try to get
to them before they cross the
line."
Cordez King, a 14-year-old
Richardson Middle School
student, said he liked semi-
nars.
"It's very interesting," he
said. "It teaches us how to stay
out of trouble, how to stay
away from drugs and not to
get caught up in sexual
issues."
King said the summit pro-


vided him with information
that he will be able to tell other
boys, so they can stay away
from drugs and other trouble.
"These seminars give them
an opportunity at a young age
to ask questions and clear up
some misconceptions about
some things," Laxton said.
"We're just trying to get them
to understand that they're at
that age right now where the
choices they make will affect
them for the rest of their
lives."
The Rev. Hugh Sherrill,
Cornerstone Community
Church pastor, said the sum-
mit provided the boys with


accurate information that
could make a .positive differ-
ence in their lives.
"I appreciate the combined
efforts of the school board and
police department to put on
the summit for these kids," he
said. '"The boys are receiving
information that is going to be
'straight information' and not
information off the street.
They're going to see the penal-
ty for doing the things they're
not supposed to be doing and
they're going to see there is a
right way and a wrong way to
do things. I'm pleased that
we, as a church, can be a part
of this."

He remarked that both
Union and Confederate troops
showed "perseverance in the
face of fear" and though the
war divided the country,
America has since shared that
perseverance and is united "for
freedom and equality for all
people."
Commanding General of the

rounding events as "a chance

to come together and honor
the soldiers both from the
North and the South."

After a few weeks, Dortch
had his product.
Now in his 20th year of busi-
ness, Dortch is still having fun
selling his puppet to children
across the nation.
"I love selling them more
than anything because there is
nothing like seeing a child
smile and giggle as they allow
their imagination to get the
best of them-" he said. "No
matter what kind of day I am
having, making kids laugh
simply makes my day."


"unashamedly and be proud of
it," he said.
Roberts also thanked Faye
Bowling-Warren, executive
director of the Blue-Grey
Army, for her work and First
Federal Savings Bank of
Florida for its sponsorship of
the festival and reenactment.
To end the ceremony, Blue-
Grey Army members Laura
Null and Ann Brown placed
the wreath beside a monument
to the unknown soldiers before
'Taps" was played by
Confederate reenactor Andrew
Adams to musket fire.
The Sons of Confederate
Veterans ceremony featured a
welcome by Robert Tucker
before Chaplain Neil Miles led
a prayer to remember those
who died on "both sides of the
battlefield." He was followed
by another salute to the

Following an address by
Eversole on the importance of

about 125 Confederate soldiers
who were known to have been

The lengthy list of names was
followed by a 21-gun salute and

Among the names read by
Tucker was Robinson B.

LAKE CITY REPORTER, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2005


We all know that temptation has been lurking as long as man has been upon
the earth...slithering around in the Garden of Eden ...disguising itself
with glitter and glamour, promising love and acceptance, and sometimes
pretending to be the only solution to your problem.
As we approach President's Day, we remember that even George
Washington, the "Father of Our Country" chopped down that cherry tree. Yet,
he resisted the temptation to lie about it.
All of us succumb to temptations now and then. As 1 Corinthians 10:13
explains it: "No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is
faithful, and will not let you be tempted beyond your strength, but with the
temptation will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it."
God allows us to be tempted for a reason. When we resist temptation and allow
Him to be our guide, our spirit is strengthened. Perhaps one could think of this as
a "divine" exercise in trusting our Heavenly Father.
Won't you visit your chosen House of Worship this week to keep in touch
with our Creator and follow His Word in the Holy Bible? As you come to know
God and His will, you will. like George Washington, discover divine possibilities
for your life.

By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter. corn

Yolie and Ron Strickland
live in Panama City, but on
most days, you won't find
them there.
The Stricklands travel the
country, selling their artwork
at different shows and festi-
vals. For the first time, they
are selling their pieces -
made with stained glass,
agate, stones and wire at
the Olustee Festival.
The pieces range in shape
from a large stained glass gui-
tar to brightly colored fish of
various sizes. Yolie said she
and her husband don't follow
any patterns. The designs are
all made freehand from
scratch.
Inspiration for the designs
usually come from Ron.
"My husband's got a very
interesting brain," she said,
laughing. "He's very cre-
ative."
Though the Stricklands are
based in Panama City, Yolie
said they travel to about 30 to
40 Lshaws- around Florida,
Georgia and Alabama most of
the year and in Michigan


most of the summer.
Why Michigan?
'"The shows are good," she
said. Southern states don't
have as many festivals in the
summer, Yolie said, most like-
ly because of the hot weather.
Near home in the Florida
Panhandle, Yolie said she and
her, husband work mostly
seafood festivals.
Catching the Stricklands at
shows is the only way to pur-
chase their artwork. Because
they're always traveling, they
don't sell their art from a
store or from home.
Yolie said their visits home
usually last about three days,
to rest and create more art,
and then they're on the road
again.
Pieces are priced on how
long they take to make.
"We charge a certain
amount an hour," she said.
"Stained glass is very time
consuming."
Besides working with
pieces- of colored glass, the
Stricklands create art with
wire and bottles, as well as
jewelry fired in a kiln. Some
of the artwork, most shaped
like the sun, have agate


pieces in the center, in pur-
ples and blues.
Yolie said creating the art
was a hobby at first. A friend
taught her how to do the work
and she in turn taught her
husband. They owned a gift
shop in Panama City and sold
some of their pieces there.
Their art became popular
and was outselling everything
else, so they decided to pack
up the shop and hit the road.
Yolie said they usually have
their schedules planned out
months ahead of time and
they always have somewhere
new to go each week.
Joyce Morgan, of Lake
City, said she visited the
Stricklands' tent because she
was drawn to the details.
Morgan said "the good
craftsmanship" attracted her,
and once there she noticed
the tent was "very organized."
The bright colors, with
light from the sun reflecting
through, put her at ease.
"You feel comfortable,"
she said, looking up at the
pieces hanging over her
head.
The Stricklands' next show
is in New Smyrna Beach.

Tigers advance to state playoffs


By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter.com

The Columbia High boys
basketball team clinched a
state playoff berth with a 53-
38 win over Lee High on
Friday, but the Tigers still
have some unfinished busi-
ness remaining.
"Everybody talks about the
state championship, but we've
got to start with districts,"
Tigers coach Trey Hosford
said. "We're not satisfied. We've
got to finish this tonight."
Columbia set the pace from


the start, taking a 12-5 lead
after one period and surging
to a 27-15 halftime advantage.
The Ti-
gers actual-
ly built the
lead to as [
many as 17 1 TIGERS
points in
the third
period
before the
Generals mounted a rally,
closing the gap to 36-27 at the
end of the period.
Columbia's free throw
shooting sealed the win in the


fourth, as the Tigers made 8-
11 from the charity stripe. And
it paved the way to a district
title showdown tonight against
the winner of the Ridgeview
High-Forrest High semifinal.
Columbia split against both
teams this season.
"Either way we're going to
come out and play and see
what happens," Hosford said.
Kendric Williams led the
team with 14 points. Byron
Shemwell added 12, Alvin
Bradley scored 11 and Kenny

Building a racing future


Lake City's Ricky

Crawford II is

part of NASCAR

By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com

Ricky Crawford II is waiting
for a call that will put him over
the wall.
Crawford has been in rac-
ing school in Mooresville,
N.C., sinceAugust, but if that
call comes through he will be
on a flight to Daytona Beach
to join a pit crew for the
Daytona 500.
"Some teams have crew
members that don't make the
race and they will pay you to
go over the wall for them,"
Crawford said by phone from
Mooresville on Thursday. "I
am louokig fur a phone call to.
possibly fill a spot."
Crawford said his window
is 10 a.m. today, and he would
still have time to catch a flight.
He is in the midst of all types
of race training, but pit crew is
one area he has done on his
own.
'They have schools, up
here, but I haven't gone to
any," Crawford said. "I taught
myself how to change tires."
Pit crew school is about the
only training Crawford has
skipped since moving to
Mooresville. A Fort White
High graduate, who also went
to Columbia High, Crawford
enrolled in a two-year pro-
gram at the NASCAR
Technical Institute.
Crawford also went to work
at Innovative Motorsports,
Inc., in what he described as
an internship. There he
worked with Hank Parker Jr.
and Robert Huffman of the
Craftsman Truck Series.
Recently, he signed a one-
year contract with Jeff
Spraker Racing Enterprises,
where he works as a fabrica-

"We had put 3,500 hours

have had a couple of offers."


Lady Tigers show Fleming no mercy


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com

Columbia High's softball team blasted into
district play with a 12-2 win over Fleming
Island High at home, on Friday.
The Lady Tigers pounded out 14 hits, stole
three bases and kept the pressure on the
Golden Eagles by taking every extra base.
Columbia put Fleming Island (1-2) in mercy-
rule danger with a seven-run fourth inning.
Jenna Payne closed the door. She relieved
Jamie Daniels to open the third inning and
gave up two hits, including a triple. Catcher
Brittany Johnston saved the run by throwing
out a runner who attempted to steal. Payne
struck out the final seven batters she faced and
eight overall.
At the plate, Payne had a pair of RBI-doubles
and scored two runs. Rachel Parker also had
two RBI-doubles, the first one coming with two
out in the first inning to score Johnston.
Nine Lady Tigers had hits. Lead-off batter
Johnston reached base all four plate appear-
ances, scored three runs, and had two hits and
one RBI. Chelsea Blair had two hits, scored
two runs and had an RBI.
'"We had some great hits tonight and some
great baserunning," CHS head coach Mary
Hale said. "We had some players who came off
the bench and did good."
One of those was Marie Croft, less than a

fourth and had two hits in the inning. She
scored one run, stole a base and had an RBI.

Meanwhile, Crawford will
continue to learn the business
and hang with his penny-.
poker buddies Dale Earnhardt
Jr., Tony Stewart, Dale Jarrett,
Michael Waltrip and Parker.
"My plans are to eventually
move back to Lake City and
open up my own shop,"
Crawford said. "I would like to
race in some ARCA and Busch
races in a couple of years."
But for right now, the most
important thing is to hear that
