David Rose's last wish did-
n't turn out as he had hoped.
Rose's friends and family
were told by Osceola National
Forest officials that they were
not allowed to shoot Rose's
ashes out of cannons over fed-
erally-owned property.
Rose died in June 2004 after
a fight with stomach cancer.
He had hoped to have his
ashes shot out of a cannon
over the Olustee Battlefield,

The soil shook as cannons
boomed from both sides of the
Olustee Battlefield, coughing
out clouds of whitish-gray
smoke Saturday afternoon.
One cloud seemed to end in
a perfect "0" against the back-
drop of a clear blue sky.
Perhaps the "0" was for
SOlustee.
The Olustee Battlefield
came alive Saturday as reenac-
tors from across the country
engaged in a Civil War battle.
The bleachers on one side.
of the field were filled to
capacity with spectators who
sat ready to travel back in time
to the Civil War.
The crowd spilled out onto
the coarse grass all around the
sidelines, and visitors stand-
ing in the back stood on their
tiptoes to peer into the woods
across the other side.
The distant sound of gunfire
seemed to get louder as the

Confederate forces met
R. Union troops marching west
from Jacksonville with inten-
tions of disrupting trans-
portation routes from
r Central Florida.
Today marks the 141st

Olustee.
Under the command of

Man gets arm
'amputated' at Olustee
Battlefield.
By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter.com
Without proper anesthesia
and sterile tools, a Civil War
soldier shot in the arm and
the chest wouldn't have much
of a chance. Forget amputa-
tion. The soldier would have
died.
James Macquillin met that
fate, but fortunately, it was
just a demonstration.
Dressed as a Union soldier,
Macquillin arrived at the sur-
geon's table with two wounds,
one on the chest and one on
the arm. Elaine Vandergriff of
Chattanooga, Tenn., played
the part of a nurse and read-


ied the soldier for his surgery.
Woody Woodrum of
Panama City was the surgeon,
a role he's held for 15 years at
Olustee.
Using authentic tools from
the Civil War era, Woodrum
pulled a bullet out of
Macquillin. He then "amputat-
ed" Macquillin's left arm. In
reality, Macquillin's arm was
at his side, under his clothes,
and 'Woodrum pulled the bul-
let from slices of bacon and
cut into an ox tail in
Macquillin's sleeve.
Macquillin's "arm" was now
cut off, but it was too late.
"By the time we got to his
chest, he died," Woodrum
said.
Woodrum has been playing
the part of a surgeon since
1989, when his son got him
into reenacting. Because of an


aneurysm, he couldn't partici-
pate on the battlefield, and
after three years took on the
role of a general surgeon.
Woodrum has no medical
training, a retired doctor of
entomology. But Woodrum's
hospital steward is a retired
Air Force medical technician
Richard Kochendofer of
Enterprise, Ala., has been
playing the part of a Civil War
medic for seven years, a mem-
ber of the 10th Indiana
Cavalry. He's one of the
unmounted cavalry, which is
not allowed on the battlefield
for Olustee. This is his third
year at Olustee.

Kochendofer, Woodrum and
Vandergriff worked was about

Two teenage girls who look
like she just stepped out of a
history book giggle their way
into Elizabeth Warren's Bama
Rose Mercantile booth
Saturday.
Maggie Davis, 15, and
Brittany Gagel, 17, gather
their flowing skirts to maneu-
ver to a counter filled with
shimmering accessories.
They eyed wide hats and
laced gloves to wear to com-
pliment their dresses.
Before long, owner
Elizabeth Warren shared sto-
ries and tips for the perfect
Civil War-era outfit.
Warren specializes in only
1860.era clothing and has par-
ticipated in the Olustee
Festival since 1999.
The Florida native lives in
Hartford, Ala., hence the
name of her shop.
Warren uses patterns for
her dresses and also devel-
oped two exclusive designs all
her own.
"It takes me about one day
to make one dress," she said.
"But you have to understand
that a day for me is anywhere
from 12 to 16 hours, not an 8-
hour-day."
Warren attends approxi-
mately 24 shows -a year, and
she only travels in the South.
"Next stop is Louisiana,"
she said.
The mother and grand-
mother fell in love in reenact-
ment festivals in 1993.
"Someone brought me one
sort of as a joke because they
thought I wouldn't enjoy it,"
she explained. "But I loved it

Rose Mercantile. Warren's booth was one of many at the Olustee Battlefield Historic State
Park Saturday.


so much I went right home
and made a dress for me and
some for my daughters."
Before then, Warren was
getting tired of her job sewing
for a business that wasn't her
own. Soon after, Bama Rose
was born.
"I quit my job in 1997 and
became a stay-at-home mom,
which allowed me to really
develop my business," she
said.
Business was good for
Warren at this year's festival.
Visitors could purchase a
Civil War-era dress for around
$150 and get a hoop to go


underneath for about $38,
Warren said.
Racks and racks of her
dresses were stuffed inside
her booth with sizes ranging
from baby to queen sizes for
ladies.
"The best thing about what
I do is traveling and not hav-
ing a boss," Warren said.
Warren puts her heart into
every single dress she makes.
"I can spend hours just
playing with the trim for a par-
ticular dress," she said.
She ensures that her
designs are accurate reflec-
tions of dresses from the early


1860s by consulting her book-
case filled with books from
the time period.
Warren uses mostly cotton
for her dresses because she
says that was the fabric most-
ly used during the Civil War.
Besides the beautiful
gowns, the booth was full of
flags, wooden flutes, harmoni-
cas, lace gloves, candles, deli-
cate fans, candies and hand-
kerchiefs.
Men's wear included vests,
pants and dress shirts.
"I love it so much, I don't
sew any modern clothes," she
said.


Marine Corps League sells barbecue for Toys for Tots program


By ASHLEY CISNEROS
Sacisneros@iahecityreoorter.con_

The Suwannee Valley
Detachment Number 1086 of
the Marine Corps League
sold delicious barbecue as
'part of the Olustee Festival all
in the name of charity.
For three years the league
. has hosted the holiday-time


Toys for Tots program mak-
inig Christmas possible for
local children.
The national Toys for Tots
program started in 1947.
"All proceeds from our bar-
becue sale will benefit our
Toys for Tots program that
aided 1,800 children in
Suwannee and Columbia


counties last year," said Jerry
Curtis, incoming comman-
dant for the Suwannee Valley
Detachment Number 1086.
Last year the league gave
away bags full of toys.
Churches and other organi-
zations provide the names of
families who need a little
extra help during the


Christmas season.
".If we have a family with
five children, all five children
get gifts as long as they are
under 16," explained Walt
Russell, judge advocate for
the Suwannee Valley
Detachment Number 1086.
"It is a long process that
requires a lot of manpower,"


he said. "It's really'.a three
month program." "
Before distribution, the
gifts are kept in a warehouse
in Lake City.
'We have done very well
with the barbecue sale,"
Curtis said. "And all for a
good cause."
The league is aided by the


'Ladies Auxiliary who also is

"There is nothing like the
satisfaction of seeing the
relief of a mother or father of
these children who wouldn't
have been able to buy
Christmas presents for them,"
Curtis said.


Gonzales approves death penalty in deputy's killing


By CATHERINE WILSON
Associated Press
MIAMI The Justice
Department disclosed
Friday that it will seek the
death penalty for a child
pornography suspect
charged with killing a
Broward County sheriff's
deputy during a raid at his
home.
The approval of new
Attorney General Alberto
Gonzales was required to


pursue the harshest punish-
ment, and prosecutors met a
Friday deadline set by the
judge for making a decision.
Prosecutors listed 11 factors
warranting execution for
Kenneth Wilk, including pre-
meditation and his potential
for future dangerousness.
Wilk, 43, is charged with
killing Broward sheriff's
Deputy Todd Fatta, 33, by
using a high-powered hunting
rifle with a bullet that pierced
the officer's protective vest


last Aug. 19. A second deputy,
Angel Cedeno, was shot in the
hand and lost a finger.
The anti-pornography task
force of federal and local offi-
cers raiding the home didn't
know of a Fort Lauderdale
police computer notice warn-
ing officers "to use extreme
caution" when approaching
the house because of previous
threats to officers and a ready-
made SWAT raid plan.
Wilk once listed "hunting
cops" as a hobby on an


Internet profile, and city police
had noted seeing rifles and
handguns in the house. His
partner, Kelly Ray Jones,
already was jailed on pornog-
raphy charges.
Prosecutors are using the
men's correspondence while
Jones was in jail against Wilk.
"I want to hurt someone,"
Wilk wrote Aug. 11. "I have
lost so much respect for peo-
ple's lives, it's like killing peo-
ple would be justified and
enjoyed."


The next day, he wrote: "I
know that picking fight with
cops is insane, but I need to
vent my rage over an injustice
... have several weapon just
laying around in case one of
the nut jobs actually show up."
Federal prosecutors have
filed for the death penalty 10
times in Florida cases, but
none has been successful.
A unanimous jury is
required for a federal death
verdict as opposed to a majori-
ty vote in state court. Wilk


could face a murder charge in
state court regardless of what
happens in the federal case.
But whether Wilk will reach
trial is an open question. He
said at his first court appear-
ance after the raid that he has
AIDS.
"Since Mr. Wilk is dying of
AIDS, it is very surprising that
the federal government would
want to turn this into a federal
death penalty case," said Bill
Matthewman, one of Wilk's
attorneys.

Flu season



hits home

M medical clinics in Lake City
were filling up with sick
people late in the week..
Miserable symptoms.
Respiratory distress.
Overall body aches. The number of men,
women and children suffering from
influenza is on the rise locally.
Confirmed cases of the flu have risen
during the past two weeks and that's an
alarming announcement.
Spring comes early in Florida and feel-
ing sick during the warming days of this
time of year is not welcome.
So beware.
Health care professionals have whis-
pered that our flu season, unlike a majority
of the country, may now be upon us the
worst.
Children have been hit hard recently
with an increase in the number of children
being treated for illness in Columbia
County. NMany of these have shown flu-like
symptoms. Let's hope Friday's teacher
workday and Monday's holiday, plus the
fresh air of the Olustee festival weekend,
allow many school-aged children to stop
trading germs and get well.
For those attempting to beat the infec-
tion, there still are approximately 500 flu-
shot vaccinations remaining at the
Columbia County Health Department.
Experts say it is not too late to get the nee-
dle and beat the affliction.
And, there's that age-old method of pre-
ventipn that all of our mothers and grand-,
mothers preached to us: Hand-washing. It'
goes. a long way toward keeping us all
healthy and it prevents the flu from.
spreading.
Stay strong and stay well.

Olustee Festival 2004 flashback
V^.I0uUA l 0llVl 0j v J-ni llU


L ast February I was honored to be
selected as the 2004 Parade Marshal
for the Olustee Festival. Here is what
I wrote for the Blue-Grey Army's offi-
cial publication at that time to
express my appreciation.
"What a great honor it is for me to be named
2004 Parade Marshal, for the 26th annual Blue
Grey Olustee Festival. My sincere thanks go to
those who selected me.
I am especially honored to follow a great cit-
izen like Judge Charles Vocelle, 2003 Parade
Marshal. He is one of the most respected men'
in our community and,he .wasa majporfrce,in
creating this event and moving it forward to
become the huge success it is today.
Why was I selected for this honor? I'm not
sure but I hope it was because I may represent
many of the ordinary, every day citizens who
make up our community. We are probably the
kinds of people who fought on both sides in the
Battle of Olustee. People who answered the call
of their patriotic duty. People like my grandfa-
ther, a farmer and family man, who left hearth
and home to join the southern forces on distant
battlefields.
About myself, I was born here, schooled
here, and raised my family here. My ancestors
are all from this area. My father was a working
man and educator, and my mother was a house-
wife. My three brothers all fought in World War
II. My life's work has been in public education,
and I sometimes write about the people and
events of my county. I am a Columbia County
guy. As the old saying goes, "I am. Columbia
born and Columbia bred and when I die, I'll be'
Columbia dead."
Enjoy yourselves at the Olustee Festival.
Visit the vendors at their fascinating booths.
Sample the delicious food. Fellowship with old'
friends and meet new people. Get to know the
reenactors. Take a quiet moment to remember
the sacrifices of the soldiers.
And, most importantly, as we think back to
the heroism and horrors of the Civil War, let us
remember that we are all Americans.
Wherever we live North, South, East, or
West -that place is our own little slice of the
incredible miracle called the United States of
America. Let us all re-dedicate ourselves this
day to preserving, protecting, defending, and
improving it.
Thanks, Robert

Crossing


that PC line

Sf anyone thought the reelection of
straight-talking George W. Bush to the Z
White House was a signal that. the
plague of political correctness was o0-
the wane, they should think again. Just
ask no less noteworthy a figure than.
Harvard University President Lawrence, .
Summers.
Summers hadthe temerity, the temerity, the political
incorrectness, the some would, say fool-.
ishness to suggest on Jan. 14 this year that,
there are innate differences in the brains of
men and women.
He further suggested that those' differ-.
ences may in part explain why men excel
more in some disciplines and women in
others.
You can imagine what happened next. As
the cartoon rooster Foghorn Leghorn:
would say, "Boy, you in a heap, of trouble."!
The politically correct-nicks and har{-
core feminists unsheathed their knives and
set to carving Summers up, even though as
president of Harvard he is the head 'of.
America's most prestigious school ,of learn-
ing, and a very liberal campus to boot.
Summers had crossed one ,of those.lines
that a high-profile appointee doesn't ,step.
over unless he.is either: A. So secure in hiis
position he knows he can weather whatever,
storm comes, B. Victim of a momentary
lapse of sanity he quickly corrects by grolv-,
eling in apology, or C. Someone who really,
hates his job and wants to get fired so he
can start a new career as a martyr., .
The Harvard president mostly falls into
category B. His remarks were made at a
private conferenceand. according to him,.
"in the spirit of academic inquiry," but they.
are being used to excoriate him despite hi%,
several apologies and release of the full
transcript of his remarks.
Summers is guilty not of uttering false
statements, but of breaking taboos and
making a,very controversial remark.
A significant body of research supports
Summers' claim thatmen and women have
different strengths and weaknesses, and
that these are in large part due to the way;
our brains work.
This isn't new information to me and it.
probably isn't to you, either.
Just imagine what a mess we would be n'
if all women thought like men. .
All food except pizza would be fried and:
there would be a worldwide shortage of
potatoes and ketchup.
Dressing up would entail, at best, jeans,
without holes and a T-?hirt with only one
stain. Sneakers optional.
All heating and cooling systems w6uld be"
permanently set to 65 degrees. There,
would be no Lifetime, Home Shopping
Network or Soap Opera channels. Oprah
and Dr. Phil would be 'unemployed and foot-.
ball, basketball, NASCAR and female
'rasslin matches would rule the airwaves.
Greeting card companies would go out pf
business. Cute cars would be outlawed and
new technologies would be developed to
replace rubber, since, all tires would be'r
oversized.
Now, what if all men thought like women..
Pickup trucks would be found only in"
museums. Minivans and pastel-colored VW,
bugs. would rule the roads along with the.
occasional block-long super SUV emittirig.
the 'soft sounds of a Michael Bolton CD..'
ESPN would be kaput and Oprah would
marry Dr. Phil after several televised
shows featuring 'thoughtful, soul-baritig:
talk in a live TV event that would eclipse.
even the ratings for Olympic pairs ice danc-
ing. Global warming escalates since all'
thermostats are locked on 80. Hallmark'
becomes the world's largest corporation..
And finally, there would be a worldwide
shortage of lettuce as salads would move to
the top of the food pyramid, and .cows
would become more plentiful than mosqui-
toes since red meat would be outlawed. -
Fortunately, women are the wonderful
creatures they are, and we men are the for-.
tunate guys we are to have women around.
Everybody knows that in a lot of ways men
and women think and act differently. ,
Thank goodness for it.
Quoting the French isn't too popular-
these days, but they have a saying which
fits here perfectly.
Vive le difference!

AMPUTATION
Continued from page 1A

a 7-minute walk from the bat-
tlefield, an appropriate dis-
tance for the time, according
to Woodrum.
It would've been the job of
the steward, Kochendofer's
role, to help transport wound-


ed soldiers to the field hospi-
tal and prep them for sur-
gery.
Vandergriff has been work-
ing with Woodrum since
1997, when they met at a
reenactment in Mississippi.
Before Woodrum performs
the mock surgery,
Vandergriff readies the
wounds.


Instead of cleaning the
wounds, Vandergriff tries to
make them authentic, putting
grass, glass and any other
debris she can find.
She doesn't tell Woodrum
ahead of time what the
injuries look like, leaving the
authentic element of surprise
in for the demonstration.
She once set up a wound so


that when Woodrum tried to
take a bullet out of a soldier,
he was met with spurts of
fake blood.
No one has ever been hurt
at one of Woodrum's demon-
strations, except him.
He was once cut with a
saw and was once burned by
the black powder he used to
cauterize "wounds."

for scattering ashes were
unsuccessful.
Rose, a native of Palm
Beach County, came to
Olustee every year since he
began reenacting in the early
1980s. He was a member of
the Sons of Confederate
Veterans because he had a
great-great-grandfather and
two great-great-uncles who
fought for the Confederacy.
Lois Jones, a Lake City resi-
dent, was Rose's friend for'
years. Her husband, who died
in October 2004, and Rose par-
ticipated in reenactments all
over the South.


FIGHTING
Continued from page 1A

crowd buzzed with anticipation
for a sight of the Union and
Confederate armies.
A boy in the crowd aimed
his toy rifle out to the woods
and licked his lips as he pre-
pared to shoot.
Before long, the calvary,
infantry and artillery demon-
stration was in full view of the
crowd as soldiers marched and
rode out of the forest.
The soldiers blasted out
from beneath the tall pine
trees, and the crowd cheered
for their side as the men from
both sides fought fiercely.
Those shot fell slowly to the
ground, their palms out-
stretched on the Florida
ground.
Medical attendants ran to
each fallen soldier,' touching
hands to see if they were alive.
The Union forces pushed
the Confederate forces across
the field, and children
shrieked with delight as mas-
sive horses carrying Union sol-
diers galloped near the side-
lines.
The sound of shouting, gun-
fire, the bugle, and blast of can-
nons created the soundtrack of
a Civil War battle.
The solemn playing of
'Taps" ended the battle at 3:58
p.m., and the crowd cheered
and applauded with apprecia-

REENACTMENT
Continued from page 1A

casualties for the Union and
946 for the Confederacy, will
be recreated today for the
29th time on the original bat-
tlefield, now a state historic
site. The Olustee Battlefield
State Park is about 14 miles
east of downtown Lake City
on U.S. 90 East.
Before the reenactment
begins at 1:30 p.m. with a
thunder of cannons and mus-
ket fire, there will be a full
morning'of activities.
Beginning at 8:30 a.m.
there will be a presentation of
colors at the monument near
the park's entrance, followed
by a Union ceremony at the
monument at 9 a.m.
Then from 9 a.m.-noon, the
authentic Civil War campsite


and Sutlers Row will be open
to the public.
During that time at 10 a.m.,
for people who want to expe-
rience religion 1860s-style,
there will be a period church
service at the same large tent
used for the reenactors ball.
At 10:30 a.m., there will be a
medical demonstration of a
field hospital at the medical
tent, which will show the anti-
quated medical practices
used on Civil War soldiers
first-hand.
At 12:30 p.m. a period
music concert will be the
final event before the much
anticipated battle.
At 1:30 p.m., the bleachers
beside the battlefield (which
reaching requires a walk
back into the pine woods)
will likely already be filled
with people ready for the
start of the full battle reenact-

ment.
The battle will rage on for
more than an hour before the
Union, which lost the battle
mainly because of the
Confederate's well-planned
position, signals the formal
retreat and final volley of fire.
The actual battle raged until
dark.
During the battle, specta-
tors will see' how Finegan
sent forth troops to skirmish
the Union and draw them
closer to Olustee.
As the two forces moved
toward each other on the
afternoon of Feb. 20, 1864,
the Confederate troops
formed' a firing line flanked
by cavalry on each side.
Their strategy of. pinning
the Union army in a narrow
stretch of 'land between a
swamp and Ocean Pond left
its forces with an inability to


maneuver and resulted in the
Confederate troops inflicting
heavy casualties.
At the time of the battle,
the battlefield is believed to
have been a forest of virgin
pines, with little to no under-
brush leaving a straight line
of fire.,
It is considered one of the
bloodiest battles of the Civil
War.
Admission to the battle-
field and campsite area is $4
for adults, $2 for students and
children 5 and under are free.
The Blue-Grey Army will
provide a park-and-ride serv-
ice from the Lake City
Municipal Airport on U.S. 90
East and the Baker County
Prison beginning at 9 a.m.
Sunday morning. The cost is
$1 for adults and 50 cents for
students, pre-school children
are free.

"Every weekend, it was
some place different," she
said, and with all the traveling,
"we got to be like family."
Rose's longtime friend
Wesley Frank, who participat-
ed in reenactments because of
Rose, said because of new
park management, Rose's
memorial didn't go as planned.
He said the memorial was
arranged at the last minute fo-
Friday because that was when
they were told Rose's ashes
couldn't be shot out of the can-.
nons as planned.
Rose, a Vietnam veteran,
was involved with Yesteryear
Village in West Palm Beach.
He owned a car repair and-
welding shop in Green Acres,'
Jones said.


tion.
"This is my first time here,'.
but it was absolutely amazinge,.
said Sally Wazny of Gainesville;:
"The whole ambiance of this,
festival is superb."
Unlike the Sunday battle,.:
Saturday's battle was not aw,
actual depiction of the Battle of-
Olustee.
"In today's battle, there are:
no winners because it is just a
sample of maneuvers used ig,
'the Civil War," said Martha,
Nelson, park services special-,
ist.
'Tomorrow will be the actu--
al reenactment of the Battle ofE
Olustee, so we already know.
the Confederacy will win."
The reenactors who wer,-
enemies only a few seconds':
before stood laughing and joke:
ing with one another as they..
stretched and walked off the
field.
Bill Walker from Pinellas
County thought the battle was.
a great success. ,
"It was a rough battle," he.
said, still in his character, a sur-.
geon. "I serve as one of the:
surgeons and had to make
sure all the soldiers were
'hydrated."
Reenactor. Eddie Cockman
from Georgia encountered a
bigger challenge than simply
playing dead in the field.
"I fell in an ant pile," he
laughed. "I was squirming a lit-
tle, but other than that I think I
did well."

Tigers beaten in district title game


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
ORANGE PARK It was
basketball, but Columbia
High got bench pressed in the
District 6-4A Championship
Game.
Ridgeview High knocked
off the Tigers 54-44 at
Fleming Island High on
Saturday to repeat as district


champions.
After trading leads at the
end of each quarter, it was a
new ball game, 40-40, with
6:16 remaining.
Ridgeview took control,
going on an 11-0 run and hold-
ing off any comeback
chances.
"We didn't make enough
plays down the stretch,"
Tigers coach Trey Hosford


said.
"You have to give them
credit. They have been in this
position before, and they
made the plays."
While Columbia had five
players scoring, Ridgeview
got 26 points out of its bench.
Six of those were three-point-
ers, including treys by sopho-

"Everybody performed

Fort White High to make history with first home track meet


By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter.com
The Fort White High boys and girls
track teams are building a foundation
for the future, while trying to stay
competitive in the present.
"We basically have two seniors,
Jonathan (James) and James Pope,"
Indians track coach Demetric Jackson
said. "We're just trying to build a pro-
gram, trying to get something started."
Gone are Willie Joe Cook, and
Darius Wright, two speedsters who
were the hub of the track team last
season.
This year's best bet for a state final-
ist could be hurdler Elijah Serrano,
but it will be a tall order since two of
the best hurdlers in the state -
Suwannee High's Logan Hall and
Bruce Johnson reside in the
Indians' district.
Serrano prefers hurdles to running
regular events because "it's more
competitive and it makes you think.
It's a lot harder and I go for the harder
stuff rather than the simple stuff. And


usually, when you run track and not
the hurdles, it's more endurance. And
I don't think I have a lot of endurance.
So I use my speed and I take advan-
tage of that."
To run the hurdles well, Serrano
said he has to "have the timing right."
Serrano spends his practice time
working on getting the three steps
down between each hurdle that he
needs to run effectively.
Donald Lewis is a newcomer who
will run in the 200 and will help in field
events such as the long jump and the
triple jump. Jackson still needs to find
someone who can handle the high
jump and the pole vault, however.
Middle distance running will be the
Indians' strength, with Tim Robinson
running the 400 meters and the 800.
The 4x400 team of Robinson, Brandon
Milliken and Reggie Wood will also be
strong. And if Serrano has the oppor-
tunity, he will run in the event as well.
Jackson called him the "second-fastest
guy" in the 400 for the Indians.
. James will run on the 4x100 meter
team, as well as resuming his 100 and


200-meter duties. Brian Coker, new-
comer Michael Williams and Pope will
also be on the relay team.
"I think that last year every individ-
ual guy was faster, but this year we're
more disciplined with our handoffs
and our running techniques, so our
time will definitely be faster," James
said.
James added that the key to a suc-
cessful handoff in the relay, is to
"determine. the individual speed,
determine when you have to take off."
James hopes to better his personal
best of 10.9 seconds by going a step
lower at 10.8. To shave that crucial
tenth of a second off, James said he
has been stretching a lot to extend his
stride.
"My start is good, but my bottom
end is rough, so I try to work on the
bottom in the 200 so when I run in the
100 it will be easier," he said.
Pope will run the anchor leg of the
100, and he and Robinson are also the
fastest 400 runners. 'That's going to
be a battle," Jackson said. "One meet
he'll (Pope) be there, the next meet


he'll be in the other event."
The Indians can also look forward
to the first home track meet in school
history. The county has already set up
the pole vault and discus sites, and
with just a few more holes in the start-
ing block for the 400, the track should
be ready for the upcoming meet
against Hamilton County High.
"Everything's falling into place,"
Jackson said. "Now we're going to
have a top facility. We just need to get
a few more athletes out here. But
we're still excited. Tuesday's our first
frack meet, so we want everyone to
come out and support us."
In addition, Fort White will host a
second meet on Friday against Santa
Fe High and Taylor County High, and
the school will host the district meet
on April 14.
The excitement extends to the girls
track team, which is small in numbers
but has a large helping of a trait Coach
Kemberly Jackson admires. "I'd rather
have a small team that is dedicated

mores Evan Reece and Marcel
Huggins, who moved up after
JV season. Charles Gilbert
added two threes and nine
points off the bench.
"We had two sophomores
that came in and hit threes
and that was key," Ridgeview
coach Rob Feltner said.
"Gilbert is a starter-caliber
kid. But I am superstitious,
and we kept the same lineup
for the last 16 games and have
won 12 of 13."
Alvin Bradley led CHS with
14 points.
"There were a few baskets
we didn't make when we need-
ed to," he said. "It was my first
time at district, and I wanted
to come out and have a big
game."
Other scorers for CHS:
were: Kendric Williams 11,
Kenneth Williams 9,
Antwan Julks 7, and Byron
Shemwell 3.
Andy Rhoden led
Ridgeview with 13 points.
"We had a chance to push it
to 8 or 10 points, but just did-
n't make the plays," Hosford
said.
As district runner-up,
Columbia will travel to a first-
round playoff game on
Thursday.
"We get to play again.
That's the only good thing
about it," Bradley said.
Ridgeview improved to 20-
7, while Columbia fell to 19-9.

than a large team with not a
lot of dedication," she said.
Nicole Waddington, Adrie-
nne Wray and Kathleen Robin-
son are the three returners
from last year's squad.
"I think it's going to be a lot
more improved from last
year," Robinson said of the
team. "Because last year, a
majority of the team was mid-
dle school and a few ninth-
graders as far as girls are con-
cerned. And we're a little bit
older, a little bit more experi-
enced. A couple of us have
been running for a long time."
As with the boys team, mid-
'dle distance and distance run-
ning will be the Lady Indians'
strength.
Robinson will run the 400
and the 800. Waddington "can
pretty much do anything from
the 2-mile to the 400," Jackson
said. "She looked very strong
running the 400 meters in the
practice run, so I'm looking
forward to mixing her to see
what will be her better events
and see where she can help us
most."
Waddington prefers the
mile because "I've ran it ever
since sixth grade," she said.
Jackson said the 4x800
team could be "great."
Robinson, Waddington, and
Elizabeth Weddle will run on
the team, and if Jackson can
add the final runner she's
been coveting, her dream
team will be complete.
Lavelle Edwards could be a
find at the 200-meters,
although sprinters will be in
short supply on this year's
team. Sixth-grader Michelle
Roberts could be a future star,
and Kathleen's sister Crystal
has the makings of becoming
a good 400-meter runner,
"She doesn't have a whole
lot of conditioning," Jackson
said.' "But we're going to work
on that with her. She's young,
she's in ninth grade."
Now that the track facility is
finally complete, Demetric
Jackson said the team still
needs help in the way of
warmup pants and sweat
pants for the chilly months at
the beginning of the season.

Special to the Reporter

husband, Michael, for
about 10 years when he
was afflicted with this
strange addiction. Just
about every Sunday after-
noon, he would be drawn to
the TV to watch cars drive
around in a circle at, some-
thing called NASCAR. I would
question his sanity and go
about my more lofty pursuits,
like laundry or cleaning the
house or reading a trashy
romance novel.
Soon, just watching the cars
on TV wasn't enough. It
seemed a road trip to Daytona
was necessary to satisfy his
obsession.
So one hot July in 1996, he
and a few buddies piled into a
motor home and made the pil-
grimage to Daytona, the king
of all racetracks.
The Pepsi 400 was calling.
For three days he would call
from the infield at Daytona
International Speedway talk-
ing excitedly about what a
great time it was and how I
just had to come there.
Fat chance!
The boys and one lone
female, my now good friend
Bonnie Romer, who just hap-
pened to own the motor
home, were camping in some-
thing called "tent city," which
makes Mardi Gras look tame.
The conditions were pretty
primitive and the natives were
pretty wild. Some of the race
fans were living in tents or
homemade lodging rigged up
in the back of pickups.
But one and all, they were
race fans!
Flash forward a couple
years and NASCAR builds a
new track in Homestead.
Living just up the road in Fort
Lauderdale, my husband was
ecstatic. Because it was a one-
day race event, I let Michael
talk me into going to the inau-
gural NASCAR Truck Race.
Talk about eating my words
... with just that one race, I
would have to take back every
derogatory thing I ever said
about racing.
If you've never been, it's
hard to imagine the excite-
ment, the power of the
engines, and the strategy that
goes into winning the race. It
isn't just cars going around in
a circle.
N I ichael had created a mon-
ster and we had to get a motor
home.
In February 1998, he took
me to my first Daytona 500.
Daytona had started some-
* thing new, a section for motor
homes only, which promised
to be a little more reserved


SUSAN SLOAN

than "tent city."
Bonnie welcomed me as
additional defense against the
mainly male population of the
infield. Without running
water, electricity or dumping
facilities, it was like camping
out in the infield.
But despite the lack of luxu-
ries, this was the way to watch
a race.
At the roar of the engines,
everyone clambered to the
tops of their motorhomes.
After the race, it was like a
Daytona block party.
Music played, people
strolled around talking to
other race fans, and the smell
of barbecue filled the air.
From then on, we were reg-
ulars. The infield spots are
given out similar to reserved
football tickets. As long as you
renew your spot each year, it
is yours. You can come into
the infield five days before the
Daytona 500 so as not to miss
out on all the pre-race activity.
Qualifying, testing, and
related races such as the
NASCAR Truck Series and
Busch Series races are -held
before the big Nextel Cup
event. Each morning your
alarm clock is the jet engine
blowers cleaning the track for
the day's activities.
The smell of coffee and
bacon cooking fills the air as
race fans slowly fall out of
their motorhomes to start the
day. As you sit sipping your
coffee and reading the race
news in the paper that is deliv-
ered* to your door, you can
watch the wide variety of
motor homes roll into the
infield.
Million dollar motor homes
share the infield with custom
painted '"retired" school
buses. Twenty-foot ancient
motor homes are parked
beside 45-foot brand-new
Bluebirds and tour buses.
With race fans, everyone is
created equal.
Like the race-car drivers,
infield race fans can be com-
petitive. When we initially
started camping out in the
infield, it was charcoal grills
and coolers filled with beer.
Over the years, infield setups
have gotten quite sophisticat-
ed.
My husband, who likes to

ABOVE: Race fans watch from the infield of the Daytona 500 during the 2004 NASCAR race. Thousands of race fans flocked
to the infield spaces to get a closer look of the racing action. Race cars speed past onlookers only a few hundred feet away.

eat, decided I needed a better
cooking setup. Next thing, I
was cooking on my new "out-
door kitchen" complete with
prep stations and a place to
hang all my cooking utensils.
Sure enough, the next year
similar tables were seen
throughout the infield. When
one of our infield neighbors
showed up with a new
portable gas grill, complete
with a gas burner and fry sur-
face, we and most of our other
neighbors ,just had to have
one.
Next, spoiled by racing
news channels that are only
available on satellite or cable,
Michael decided we needed
to take our satellite dish with
us.
This required a television
on the ground to tune in the
channels and one on top of
the motor home to watch dur-
ing the race (to get the close-
ups and commentary).
We drew quite the crowd
when our neighboring race
fans heard we were getting
the pre- and post-race spe-
cials.
Now when you drive
through the infield, there is a
parade of dishes as race fans
tune in for every detail about
the race and big screen TVs
are being built into the sides
of motor homes.
The need for information is
insatiable.-
When Michael heard that
you could listen in on the


crew chief's communication
with the driver by buying a
special scanner and head-
phones they were next on the
"have to have" list. And to see
as much of the track as possi-
ble, a new aluminum fabricat-
ed viewing stand was built to
sit on top of the motor home.
Now, almost every motor
home has a similar set up.
Recognizing the need, cer-
tain motor home manufactur-
ers have even designed a
motor home complete with an
interior staircase taking you
up to the "party pit" on top,
complete with refrigerator,


barbecue grill and luxury
seating to watch the race.
One ingenious race fan
installed a deer stand with a
swivel seat on top of his motor
home to, catch all the action.
And while it usually isn't nec-
essary during the winter
Daytona 500 race, race fans
who come to the Pepsi 400 in
July, beat the heat with their
own private swimming pools.
Each year, the competition
to have the biggest and
coolest "kiddy pool" gets
more intense.

Daytona 500 fans watch the 2004 NASCAR race on the infield in a place called "tent city." Thousands of race fans flock to the speedway in Daytona every
year for what is considered the biggest racing event of the year in Florida.


Speedway knows they have a
good thing going in the
infield. To make it even more
special, this year a massive
renovation of the infield will
give race fans an even greater
opportunity to, enjoy the race.
So what draws these race
fans back year after year?
The infield at Daytona is
like a family reunion. Because
the infield spots are prized,
they are rarely given up. The
same groups return each year
to share in the excitement of
watching the race up close
and personal.
You are literally only a few
hundred feet away from the
cars as they go around the
track. Because of the slope of
the track they are actually
right in front or even above
your head as they go around
the turns. When an unfortu-
nate accident happens, it
might be right in front of you.
The noise, the smell of burn-
ing tires, and the grind of the
car as it bottoms out going
around the turn is an unfor-
gettable experience.
But most of all, it is the
camaraderie of being around
other race fans who love the
sport as much as you that
keeps you coming back.

Plant a citrus for a taste of Florida


By DON GOODE
Columbia County Extension Service

Living in Florida, when I

think of fresh
fruit, I.think of
citrus .
According to
Billy and
Mike Barwald
with the
Flying Dragon
Citrus
Nursery in
Jacksonville,
there used to


be a thriving citrus industry in
northeast Florida. Climate con-
ditions and land prices drove
the commercial citrus industry
further south. For the home-
owner, however, there are sev-
eral types of citrus that grow
well in our area. Some of these
include Satsumas, Kumquats,
Calamondins, and Meyer
Lemons.
Trees grafted on cold hardy
rootstocks such as Flying
Dragon and Swindel are rec-
ommended. Some trees, how-.
ever, such as the Kumquats
and Meyer Lemon will grow
well on their own roots.
Some form of cold protec-
tion may be needed for more
tender citrus varieties on the
coldest evenings of winter. A


thick pile of mulch or a mound
of soil around the trunk can
protect the lower trunk where
the desirable variety was graft-
ed onto the rootstock.
If the top dies from the cold,
at least the tree might re-
sprout from the graft and
recover over the years to
come. You can also wrap the
trunk with foam insulation
sold in hardware stores as a
pipe wrap. Try stringing
Christmas lights on the tree
and covering the tree with a
blanket to hold in the warmth
from the lights.
The neighbors will think
you are festive. Cold sensitive
citrus trees may be planted
next to a building for added
cold protection.
Running a sprinkler on the
tree is not recommended even
though they used to do this in
commercial orchards. For
freezing water to provide pro-
tection, the water must not be
turned off until it has com-
pletely thawed whenever the.
weather warms up enough to
do so. Also, the weight of the
freezing water can cause the
tree limbs to break.
Leaf miners can be a prob-
lem with citrus trees. The
young grub stage of this
insect is very small and tun-


nels within the leaf causing
distorted leaves. Some leaves
will fall off if badly damaged.
You can reduce the insect pop-
ulation by picking off any
leaves with tunnels and throw-
ing them away.
Watch for scale insects on
your citrus trees. These little
insects suck juices from the
stems and weaken the tree. In
their adult stage, they settle
down and stick themselves to
the limbs.
A horticultural oil spray can
be used to control scales and a
variety of other insects. An
insecticide such as Malathion
can be used for other pests as
needed according to label
directions.
Diseases such as scab,
melanose, and greasy spot can
attack citrus fruit. A copper
fungicide spray can be used to
prevent these problems. -
We get calls occasionally
from people -that want to
sprout the seeds from an
orange or other fruit and try
to grow them.
This can be done, but the
fruit from these seedling trees
may not be true to type of the
fruit that produced the seeds.
Trees from seeds often take
several years to bear fruit thus
delaying your decision


whether to keep the tree or
not.
Fertilize your citrus trees
with a citrus special fertilizer
to provide the micronutrients
the tree needs.
A rule of thumb suggested
by the Flying Dragon Citrus
Nursery is to measure the dis-
tance in feet from the trunk
out to the drip line to give the
radius. Fertilize at one pound
for every foot of radius.
Apply this amount of fertil-
izer monthly from late
February through September.
Also water the tree as needed
throughout the year (even in
the winter) to avoid drought
conditions.

growing citrus in our area,

LCCC celebrates nursing students' week


By ABRAHAM PALLAS, P.H.D.
Chairperson of the LCCC Allied
Health programs

Before you can be a nurse,
you've got to be a student,
and at Lake City Community
College, student nurses are a
major part of campus life.
With 170 students enrolled in
one of the college's three
nursing programs, and over
300 more who indicate that
they are interested in major-
ing in one of the programs,
they make up one of the
largest student blocs on cam-
pus. These students, and oth-
ers nationwide, will be cele-
brating Nursing Students
Week from Sunday Feb.26.
This year's theme, '"The Path
to Professionalism," refers to
both the educational path and
the professional path of advo-
cacy and involvement in the
preprofessional organization.
The Lake City Community
College Student Nurses
Association (SNA), as part of
both the Florida Nursing
Studerits Association
(FNSA) and the National


Student Nurses Association
(NSNA), is the preprofession-
al organization for local nurs-
ing students. The Florida
NSA is the largest state
organization within the
national organization. With
more than 3,000 members, it
has been a leader as an
organization that provides
leadership education and
experience to hundreds of
Florida's nursing students. It
hosts an annual student con-
vention, which has one of the
greatest student turnouts
around the country. This year
over 1,500 persons attended,
coming to participate in edu-
cational focus sessions, a
House of Delegates assem-
bly, and other activities.
FNSA will be celebrating its
50th anniversary this year.
Henrietta Pope, professor
of nursing at the college and
faculty advisor to the col-
lege's SNA chapter, says that
members of the organization
are active both on campus


and in the community. One of
the next major projects in
which the SNA will partici-
pate is a 5K walk/run for
Cystic Fibrosis, to be held on
the LCCC campus on April
23.
The college also recognizes
the importance of the organi-
zation. Beginning in 2006,
candidates for admission to
the associate degree nursing
program will be required to
provide evidence of involve-
ment in the healthcare field.
Among the ways in which this
can be done is to actively par-
ticipate in the Lake City SNA.
Abraham Pallas, Ph.D.,
chairperson Allied Health
programs at the college,
agrees with this assessment.
"We want our graduates to be
more than well-educated clini-
cians. We want them to be
well-rounded, contributing
members of the community. "
LCCC offers three pro-
grams in the nursing field. The
ASDN program in nursing, a


two-year program, leads to the
associate in science degree in
nursing, with graduates being
eligible to become registered
nurses. The college also offers
a one-year Practical Nursing
certificate program, with grad-
uates eligible to become
licensed practical nurses, and a
one-semester patient care
assistant certificate program,
with graduates eligible to
become certified nursing assis-
tants as well as patient care
assistants.,
The college also has a
bridge program for practical
nurses seeking to earn their
associate ckgit-r in nursing.
Prospective members are
encouraged to find out more
about the nursing organiza-
tions by going / to

LCCC's nursing programs, call

nursing, at 754-4319 or e-mail

International company has beginnings in Lake City


By JUSTIN LANG
flang@lakecityreporter.com

There is little activity out-
side a former electrical supply
building downtown at the cor-
ner of Washington Street and
Alachua Avenue.
On the wall of the build-
ing's yellowing warehouse
area, there are signs promot-
ing the name brands of
kitchen appliances leading
one to assume that's what
they might find inside.
But on the mall marquee
sign out front, black letters a
few inches high hint at the
company the building actually
houses: "Dive Rite."
For the past 12 years, the
-distributor and manufacturer
of specialty diving equipment
has operated out of the build-
ing and under the local radar.
Founded originally in 1984,
the company has grown from
two original employees to the
current 20. The company now
distributes dive equipment for
serious divers across the
United States and internation-
ally.
But though its a well-known
name among the world's div-
ing community, few local peo-
ple even know it exists or
much less what it makes.
This doesn't bother Lamar
Hires, the president and CEO
of Dive Rite.
"They say, Dive Rite?
What's that?," he said stand-
ing inside the production area
of the warehouse.
Hires makes no illusions
about his company's business
or its intentions.
Dive Rite is not a dive shop,
and it does not sell directly to
the public, though he said its
products are featured in about
a third of dive shops across
the United States and distrib-
uted through 30 international
Outlets. Its mission, Hires


JENNIFER CHASTEEN/Lake City Reporter
Dive Rite production technician Shawn Walker assembles diving reels. Dive Rite, founded in Lake City, has been in business
for 21 years. The company serves customers across the nation and world.


said, is to provide top quality
and thoroughly tested, proven
equipment for the serious
technical and open water
diver.
In his quest to serve that
market, Dive Rite has deliv-
ered since Hires and former
business partner Mark
Leonard founded the compa-
ny 21 years ago.
Moving to Branford in 1981
from Jacksonville and work-
ing at a dive shop there off the
Suwannee River, Hires met
Leonard and became further
engrossed in the world of
technical diving (such as div-
ing in the cave systems of
area springs). But in 1984,
when flooding caused the
Branford dive shop to close


for months, the two devel-
oped the idea and founded
Dive Rite.
At first, the company did all
of its manufacturing and pro-
duced only lights and reels to
cater to the local technical div-
ing community.
But by 1987, Hires bought
out Leonard and continued to
expand the company by work-
ing closely with other compa-
nies to develop dive gear
through joint ventures.
After moving to its current
building in the early 1990s and
capitalizing on an emerging
cave diving craze at that time,
the company has expanded to
offer a catalog full of diving
gear, everything a diver needs
to be outfitted from top to bot-


tom.
"No other company out
there was catering to the tech-
nical diver," Hires said.
To develop its products,
Dive Rite also takes a hands-on
approach and tests everything
thoroughly by employees tak-
ing it out and diving with it
themselves.
"If we say a product will do
something, our customers
know we've already done it
with our product," he said.
All of Dive Rite's sales staff,
which includes six outside rep-
resentatives serving all
regions of the United States,
are certified divers and use the
equipment they sell.
"If they don't dive, how can
they, sell dive equipment?,"


Hires said.
Hires himself is active in the
development of all its equip-
ment including personal
testing working to help
design computers to automati-
cally mix breathing gases used
for diving, dry suits, harnesses
and the whole gamut of Dive
Rite's offerings.
"We make sure it's some-
thing marketable and some-
thing the diver can use," he
said.
As all of the components are
designed, they then come
together inside Dive Rite's
warehouse where there are
assembled into a final product.
Inside the building
Thursday, there was a bustle
of activity as 'the company's


sales employees dealt with
clients in the front office while
in the back, others are hard at
work assembling products
and getting them ready to
ship.
Walking inside the ware-
house, Hires pointed out a set
of palettes loaded with boxes.
One is headed to the Red Sea
in Egypt and another is des-
tined for Kuwait, other ship-
ments are being prepared for
shipments as far away as
Australia.
In other rooms, employees
are busy soldering electronics
for high-intensity dive lights,
testing valves and tank equip-
ment, as well as sewing and
assembling dive harness
straps.
Not focused entirely on
business, Hires has always
been an active dive enthusiast
and educator.
In Columbia County, Hires
is working with the Florida
Springs Initiative to help
understand and map out the
Ichetucknee Springs System,
particularly that which is
below ground.
So far, he has mapped out
about a mile from Rose Sink, a
sinkhole that feeds the
Ichetucknee head spring by
diving it personally.
His ultimate goal, though
lofty, is to dive starting at Rose
Sink and follow the water
underground and emerge
from Ichetucknee head spring
(which is at least eight miles of
caves).
Hires hopes his new tech-
nology will contribute to a bet-
ter understanding of the
Ichetucknee system by allow-
ing him to study it longer and
more safely. And that, he said,
can only benefit everyone in
the community by knowing
how the unique natural
resource is fed and the best
way to protect it.

Mathis' natural wood exterior
allows it to blend harmoniously into a
woodsy vacation retreat setting. On the
other hand, it would also be a welcome
addition to all but the most upscale
suburban neighborhoods. Craftsman
windows and ,.,.d detailing add to its
charm.
Both the porch and main floor are
about one flight, up from the garage.
Wooden handrails rim the exterior's
front stairway, which climbs to the
entry porch. Another stairway, in the
garage, offers interior access as well.
Entering, you step into a vaulted
foyer that is open to the vaulted living
room/dining room to the right. Plenty
of natural light washes in through wide
side windows crowned by a gently
arched clerestory. This window set fills
much of the gabled side wall. The front
comer makes an ideal location for a
gas fireplace or a home entertainment
center.
More light spills in through sliders
in the dining area. These provide easy
access to the covered patio, which
could be screened for pest-free outdoor
dining, if desired.
A long, raised and angled eating
bar rims the peninsular counter that
marks the boundary between the din-
ing room and kitchen. Standing at the
sink, you face across that bar, into the
dining room, and are within easy view
of the living room. Other kitchen fea-
tures include built-in appliances and a
roomy walk-in pantry.
The Mathis' utility room, small
bathroom and master suite fill the rest
of the main floor. The master suite
boasts a huge walk-in closet, plus its
own private bathroom with dual vanity
and an oversized shower. Two more
bedrooms are upstairs, along with a
loft and yet another bathroom.
For a review plan, including
scaled floor plans, elevations, section
and artist's conception, send $25 to
Associated Designs, 1100 Jacobs Dr.,
Dept. W, Eugene, OR 97402. Please
specify the Mathis 30-475 and include
a return address when ordering. A cat-
alog featuring more than 400 home
plans is available for $15. For more
