By JUSTIN LANG

Lake City Mayor Ray
Kirkland resigned Monday
citing "health issues," but con-
firmed there was an investiga-


tion into allegations against
him.
Kirkland said he learned of
the allegations and investiga-
tion last week after returning
from Washington.
He declined to comment on
the nature of the investigation


or who was '
conducting
it. He said he "a' "
was just
learning the
details and
"trying to Kirkland
fathom the
depth of
whatever the suspicions or
the actions are."
The mayor would not say

to resign, but said, "What I
will be doing, in any case, is
whatever is best for me and
what's best for the city."
In a formal letter sent to
members of City Council


Monday afternoon, with a
copy also given to the Lake
City Reporter, Kirkland said,
"My personal physician has
advised that due to declining
health issues it would be in
my best interest to avoid the
stress and late hours that
sometimes accompany public
office."
In his letter Kirkland also
cited his recent marriage on
Dec. 27 to wife Mary Lou. The


letter stated he wanted to
spend more time with his and
her grandchildren.
"In light of my recent
health issues, my age (75) and
the new relationships in my

County to hold


surplus auction


From desks to cabinets,
county looks to unload
used items.

By ASHLEY CISNEROS
3cisneros@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia County will have
a surplus auction Saturday
starting at 9 a.m.
"This is the first one in four
or five years," said Frank
Harris, maintenance director
for Columbia County.
The items available will
include office furniture, cabi-
nets, shelving materials and
chain-link fences, he said.
"All of the items are surplus
items that are more or less
used," he said. "But they are in
good condition."
Harris said it is hard to pre-
dict how many people will
show up at the auction because
the county has not had one in a
few years,
"We have a lot of chairs, a lot
of desks and quite a few filing
cabinets," Harris said.
"A lot of this stuff has been
in storage for a few years in
preparation for an auction,"

Mayor Ray Kirkland's

letter of resignation


J Editor's Note: The following is
the letter Mayor Ray Kirkland
sent to City Council
announcing his immediate
resignation.

Feb. 21, 2005

To: City Council for. Lake
City

I write to submit my resig-
nation as Mayor of the City of
Lake City.
It has indeed been an honor
to represent the citizens of this
fine city. As you know, on
December 27, 2004, I married
a wonderful woman and
friend. I am truly blessed to
have Mary Lou as a new part-
ner in my life. Our marriage
has brought new priorities in
that we are both interested in
enriching our relationship as
well as spending time with my
five grandchildren and her five


grandchildren.
These new priorities have
come at a time when my per-
sonal physician has advised
that due to declining health
issues it would be in my best
interest to avoid the stress and
late hours that sometimes
accompany public office. In
light of my recent health
issues, my age (75) and the
new relationships in my life,
Mary Lou and I have made the
decision that now is the time to
fully enjoy our lives while we
are able to do so.
I hope that the citizens who
elected me understand this
important decision in my life. I
step down from this position
with the utmost gratitude and
best wishes for the citizens of
this community whom I have
been honored to serve.

Respectfully submitted,
Ray Kirkland

Reenactor honored in

private Olustee service

By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter.com

A last-minute change didn't
stop David Rose's memorial.
Originally scheduled as a
public ceremony at the
Olustee Battlefield, Rose, a
reenactor for more than 20
years, was honored at a pri-
vate ceremony at the
Confederate encampment
'after Saturday's skirmish.
Rose died June 2004 of
stomach cancer. A funeral
was held at Yesteryear.
Village in West Palm Beach,
Where Rose volunteered, but
his own request was that a
ceremony was held at
Olustee this year.
Plans were in place for a
21-gun salute and authentic
Confederate military tribute,
with Rose's ashes being shot
over the battlefield out of
seven cannons. Rose's
friends and family were
informed Friday by Osceola
National Forest officials that


the ceremony would not be
allowed to go on as planned.
The memorial held
Saturday was led by the Rev.
Peter Colon, a reenactor who
knew Rose. According to
Kathy Heitman, Rose's friend
and photographer for Florida
Reenactors Online News
Magazine, the 20-minute cer-
emony was held about a half
hour after Saturday's event.
During the memorial, Colon
spoke about Rose's life and
recited Psalm 23, which
begins "'The Lord is my
Shepherd."
Rose's wife, his daughter,
son, grandson and friends
from Yesteryear and Civil
War reenacting attended the
memorial.
Heitman said Rose is some-
one who will be missed, not.
just by the reenacting com-
munity, but by everyone he
met.
"He was just a colorful indi-
vidual," she said. "I just loved
to listen to him talk."

Olustee




Festival




a success

"F rom cotton candy to cannon fire,
the 2005 Olustee Battle Festival
offered something for everyone.
And by all accounts, everything
C ~ went well.
There's no question the weekend festival
is Lake City's signature event that show-
cases our area as a tourist destination.
,Thousands visited the festival on Friday,
tSaturday and Sunday.
Near-perfect weather conditions made
-the downtown visit with crafters, vendors
,and festival food stands a very pleasant.
,experience.
The Blue-Grey Army outdid itself this
S year with planning events that kept every-
,one occupied and entertained, as the look
'"back at 1860s North Florida history was as
fascinating as usual. Th'Blue-Grtey Army
group.continues to inspire interest in the
.period and encourages citizens to dress
the part and participate.
Hundreds came into Columbia County
'from other areas of Florida and from
around the country to participate in the
festival, not just be a bystander.. ,
Each year the festival grows and it's
pretty clear that the interest is there for
continued expansion. It's nice to see such a
*presence downtown during the festival.
Combine all of these positive aspects
with the presence of such a prestigious dis-
play on the reenactment battlefield and it
becomes clear that living historians dazzle
us with a unique art form.
.The battles are choreographed by
,"actors" who take their craft very seriously.
The skirmishes are both historically enter-.
taining and enlightening. We get to see
how the soldiers lived in camp, united to
preserve the Union or preserve the
jSouthern way of life and, at Olustee, a
f-unique glimpse into the lives of the black
soldiers who fought for both sides.
9' The festival is an interesting part of our
local culture and one that continues to be a
great success.




of Today is Tuesday, Feb. 22, the 53rd day
of 2005. There are 312 days left in the year.

LAKE CITY REPORTER, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2005


BATTLE
Continued from page 1A

Republic." The band exited
the field shortly before 1:30
p.m. and Valinda Subic,
Olustee Battlefield park man-
ager, introduced the reenact-
ment.
The battle commenced, and
a line of Confederate soldiers
crossed the field, looking for
Union troops. They were met
with fire and shot back, even-
tually meeting with other
Confederate troops toward
the center of the field, as the
Union cavalry approached,
guns blaring.
Federal forces then fired
their cannons; explosives
popped near the
Confederates. The Rebel sol-
diers retreated.
The Confederates then
readied their cannons and for
about a half hour, both sides
traded blasts. Booms from the
cannons silenced the crowd.
Every once in awhile, pieces
of brush were blasted into the
air. Flying palmetto fronds
evoked oohs and aahs from
spectators.
After the cannon exchange
ended, troops advanced, while
the Union cannons continued
to boom. The Union cavalry
arrived, while a thick line of
Confederates stretched
across the field and continu-
ously fired at will.
Eventually, Union units
came forward, shooting in
unison, while the Confederate


guns haphazardly popped and
cracked.
The smell of gunpowder,
like an Independence Day
fireworks show, clouded the
air and clouds of cannon
smoke hung in the air.
Shooting intensified, with sol-
diers left and right falling to
their mock deaths.
The Confederates were
pushing the Union troops
back. Medics trying to attend
to injured and dead soldiers
were actually passing out ice
and making sure no one suf-
fered from heat stroke.
When the battle was over,
the crowd gave a round of
applause, and dead soldiers
came to life.
Turning their backs to the
crowd, all the reenactors lined
up, raised and then fired their
guns at once, giving a salute
to American troops currently
serving in Iraq. Cannons
boomed again in memory of
soldiers lost, shaking the
ground spectators were stand-
ing on to watch the salute.
Jerod Ferguson, 8, attended
the battle with his grandmoth-
er, Janice Pettross of
Chattanooga, Tenn. Pettross,
a photographer, was shooting
photos by request for reenac-
tors, sometimes giving her
grandson a turn at the cam-
era. This was her first time
shooting photos for reenac-
tors at Olustee and it was-
Jerod's first time in Florida,
Jerod said his favorite part
of the battle was "watching
people falling on the ground."


His least favorite part was tak-
ing his grandmother to the
dance the night before.
A grandmother showing
her grandson how to photo-
graph a Confederate soldier
was not an unfamiliar sight.
Families were abundant
among the crowds at the reen-
actment, both spectators and
participants.
Isaac Graham, a 17-year-old
from Brooksville, reenacted
as a Confederate soldier, a
hobby he got into 11 years ago
because of his brother. Paul
Linder, of Jacksonville, fights
alongside his 15-year-old son
Michael, as members of the
24th Michigan, along with
Lanphere and Symington.
Linder said whenever he
goes to reenactments, his
whole family participates,
with Michael as a soldier
alongside him and his daugh-
ter dressing up in the large
hoop skirts. His family and a
few others all took RVs out to
the reenactment and had
potluck dinners with each
other.
"It's a family thing," he said.
"A great way to get together
with old friends every year."
Above all, reenactors said
that educating spectators of all
ages is their main reason for
marching with heavy weapons
and donning wool uniforms in
70-degree weather.
"It's mainly the history, get-
ting people involved with his-
tory and having fun," Graham
said. "It's a good family
hobby."


MAYOR
Continued from page 1A

so," he said.
Kirkland said that it has
been an honor to represent
the residents of Lake City.
"I hope that the citizens who
elected me understand this
important decision in my life,"
the letter concluded. "I step
down from this position with
the utmost gratitude and best
wishes for the citizens of this
community whom I have been
honored to serve."
City Council meets tonight
in its regular meeting at 7:30
p.m. and must vote to accept
Kirkland's resignation for his
seat to be officially vacated.
Kirkland did not say
whether he would attend
tonight's council meeting.
City Councilman John
Robertson said he has also
heard allegations against
Kirkland, which he would not
specifically comment on.
Robertson said he has:
known Kirkland for about 25
years.
,"My concern is for his


health and for our city and City
Council," Robertson said.
Under city charter, when
the mayor resigns, the vice
mayor (currently City
Councilman George Ward)
serves in the position until the
city can hold a special election
for a new mayor.
If the remainder of
Kirkland's term (about three
and half years) were less than
eight months then the vice
mayor would serve out the
term. But as it is, under the
charter's guidelines a special
election for mayor has to take
place no fewer than 60 days,
but no more than 90 days.
The city would handle the
qualifying of candidates and
any campaign treasury
reports, while the Columbia
County Supervisor of
Elections' Office would admin-
istrate the actual election for
all registered voters within
city limits.
After a new mayor is elect-
ed, the vice mayor will go back
to his regular council seat.
Kirkland was currently
serving his third term as Lake
City's mayor. The retired Air

Monitoring CRP can be preventative


By ASHLEY CISNEROS
acisneros@lakecityreporter.com

In addition to watching cho-
lesterol levels to prevent
heart disease, it is also helpful
to monitor c-reactive protein
levels.
CRP is secreted by the liver
in response to inflammation,
which is said to play a role in
heart disease.
CRP damages artery walls,
making them more suscepti-
ble to fatty plaque buildup.
This can rupture and block
the heart's vessels.
"I started to see more
research on CRP in the last
six years or so," said Dr.
David Sheps, associate chief
of cardiovascular medicine at
the University of Florida.
"What people need to know
is that CRP is a marker of
inflammation and its relation
to heart disease really
depends on the patient and
his or her personal health his-
tory."
Sheps said if a physician
knows a patient has a history
of cardiovascular disease, he
or she may be more aggres-

Laura Bruce, student and employee, and Eva Mathis, medical
technologist, work with samples at CHC Labs in Lake City.


sive in using medication to
help the patient.
According to the -New
England Journal of Medicine,
CRP may be a risk factor in
coronary-artery disease and
heart attacks.
Gayle Norris, lab supervi-
sor at CHC Labs explains fur-
ther.
"CRP levels rise in inflam-
matory conditions such as


trauma, infection, and
rheumatoid arthritis, and to a
lesser extent in chronic condi-
tions such as cardiovascular
disease and peripheral vascu-
lar disease," she said.
Joe Collins, founder of CHC
Labs in Lake City, says he is
completely convinced that
both men and women need to
have regular testing done to
check their cholesterol and


CRP levels.
"All the tests are interrelat-
ed because everything in the
body is interrelated, "he said.
"It has been found that
patients with hyperlipidemia,
or an elevation of fats in the
bloodstream, usually also
have higher levels of CRP,"
Collins said.
Collins suggests that per-
sons interested in checking
their CRP level should con-
sult their doctor first.
"Prevention starts with a
change in lifestyle," he said.
"We Americans are fat
overeaters who don't exercise
and this takes a toll on our
health."
Norris said that levels of
CRP less than 1.0 mg/ dL
represents low risk, levels
between 1.0 and 3.0 mg repre-
sents average risk and levels
more than 3.0 mg represents
high risk.
Hope Hall, a phlobotimist at
Lab Corporation of America in
Lake City said, '"The CRP test
is a good indicator of possible
heart problems, but only in
addition to other tests under
direction of a physician."


A CRP test alone should not
be misinterpreted because
high levels may not always
mean a cardiovascular threat.
Higher levels of CRP can
appear when a patient is sick
or if they have had an injury to
due an accident, Hall said.
Hall said most insurance
programs cover CRP testing
as long as it is directed by a
physician for the proper rea-
sons, like family health histo-
ry and symptoms.
"Blood is withdrawn from
the patient and analyzed," Hall
said. "'Then the results are
usually provided to the physi-
cian in 24 hours."
Biju Matthew, assistant pro-
fessor of medicine at the
University of Florida, says that
most people have never heard
of CRP, but that there is a
good amount of research
about it.
"There is a wealth of infor-
mation about cholesterol, and
the research and data on CRP
is substantial as well, bbt
there needs to be more," he
said. "Asking your doctor
about it is the first step to
learning more."


Senator helps awareness of colon cancer testing


Senator Rod Smith under-
went colon cancer testing this
month in an effort to take the
mystery and fear out of this
vitally important process.
The Senator had a
colonoscopy, ihe type of pro-
cedure made famous by
Today Show host Katie
Couric in 2000.
Today, colon cancer is the
third leading cause of cancer
death in the United States.
Early stages of colon cancer
usually show no symptoms,
meaning that regular'testirg


is imperative to catching the
disease before it becomes
deadly. If caught early, colon
cancer has a 90 percent sur-


vival rate. Otherwise, that rate
plummets to nine percent.

A local physician served as
a leading author of a large-
scale bladder study that was
published nationally last week.
Dr. Giora Katz, a urologist at
Lake City Veterans Affairs
Medical Center, researched
and helped
S---,- write the
study that





Dr. Giora Katz, Association.
M.D. The study
titled "New
NMP22 BladerChek Test
Improved Detection of
Bladder Cancer" was pub-
lished Feb. 16.
Several national wire servic-
es and Internet news sources
published the article.
"One of the missions wei
have is to maintain a commit-.
ment to research so when the
VA heard about this study, we,
wanted to lend our services to


it," Katz said.
The hospital was one of 23
clinical sites for the. study
selected from 10 states and
included 1,331 patients from
Sept. 2001 to May 2002.
Seventy-nine of the patients
were diagnosed with bladder
cancer.
The bladder cancer study
showed that a urine test called
"BladderChek" helps identify
patients susceptible to having
life-threatening bladder can--
cer.
The simple, inexpensive test
can be dqne in a doctor's
office... :.: ::.:.-,:
"While there are regulations
on certain tests that mandate
them to be performed in a lab-
oratory, this test is exempt and
can be performed by a physi-
cian in his or her clinic," Katz-
said.
/ The study utilize patients
with hematuria, a condition


where patients show traces of
blood in urine that are usually
invisible to the naked eye.
Almost all bladder cancer
patients have hematuria, but
10 times as many have hema-
turia from non-cancer related
causes.
The test identifies a certain
protein, NMP22, in the urine
which increases accuracy of
diagnosis.
Identification of hematuria
can be warning sign of possi-
ble bladder cancer.
Early detection of bladder
cancer can save lives, increase
- treatment options and improve
a patient's quality of life, Katz
said.
The "BladderChek" test
expedites early diagnosis and
helps the urologist be more
-confident in determining the
cause of hematuria.
It also saves money by 'dis-
tinguishing benign and


malignant tests.
Most of the patients at VA
hospitals have higher risk
for bladder cancer because
many are older males who
have a long history of smok-
ing, Katz explained.'
The VA can use
BladderChek to help identify
patients with higher suspi-
cion of cancer.
Katz is currently using
this test at his practice,
Lakeshore Urology, in
Manitowoc, Wis., which is
affiliated with Holy Family
Memorial Medical Center.
Bladder cancer has the
highest rate of recurrence
and half of all cases are
attributed to smoking, Katz
said. It is the fifth most com-
mon malignancy in this
country and 13,000
American will die of bladder
cancer this year, according
to the study.


Friends in life may go

a long way with health


Staff Reports
Weight, cholesterol and
blood pressure aside, women
might be wise to factor in yet
another barometer of heart
health: the size and strength of
their social circle.
Casting a wide net when it
comes to friends and family
appears to be associated with a
dramatically lower risk of suf-
fering a heart attack or stroke,
landing in the hospital or dying
from heart disease, reports a
national team of researchers
from the University of Florida
and seven other institutions
that studied 503 women with
chest discomfort. In contrast,
women who did not have
strong relationships with oth-
ers were more than twice as
likely to die as their more
sociable counterparts in the
study, described in the journal
Psychosomatic Medicine.
The findings, gleaned from
the Women's Ischemia
Syndrome Evaluation, build on
more than 30 years of medical
research that reinforces the
relationship between the mind
and major illness, including
cancer, dementia and viral
infections. Scientists know that
married men and women live
longer and they theorize that
larger social networks lessen
disease risk by reducing nega-
tive health habits such as
smoking, by boosting immune
system responses and by yield-
ing socioeconomic benefits
and greater social support to
offset emotional distress asso-
ciated with illness.
The National Heart, Lung
and Blood Institute- funded
study, however, is among the
first to link social isolation to
increased risk of death in
women with suspected heart
disease.
"It's important to recognize
that for centuries there has
been a group that believes


there's a strong interaction
between the mind and the
heart, though the exact rela-
tionships are not clear," said
Carl J. Pepine, M.D., chief of
cardiovascular medicine at
UF's College of Medicine. "In
my view, the number one take-
home message is that if you're
a woman with chest discom-
fort, have a lot of friends."
Marriage proved beneficial
for women in the study, but
simply having one or two casu-
al friends also was associated
with better health outcomes,
Pepine said. The larger the
social circle, however, the
healthier the women were.
'"This does not have to be a
complicated social network;
this can be an intense relation-
ship with one or two other
close friends or significant oth-
ers," he said. "Many times
these social networks are
developed in church groups, in
work groups, in recreational
groups. All of these can be
very helpful, so one ought to
encourage the development of
social support among patients
with coronary disease."
Study participants had signs
characteristic of coronary
artery disease, such as chest
discomfort and underwent a
battery of tests including
coronary angiography to
assess whether they had
blocked arteries. Most did not
have severe heart disease, but
many did suffer from depres-
sion or other forms of psycho-
logical distress. They also
completed standardized ques-
tionnaires desgined to quanti-
fy how many friends they had
and, over a a two-week period,
the amount of contact they
had with coworkers and family
and how frequently they
engaged in social and recre-
ational activities. Researchers
then tracked their health for
two to four years.

SCAR ISSUE
\\hile it i ala.\s important to
wear sunscreen and protective
clothing to protect your skin from:
the sun's rays. it is een, more
important to do so when scars are
present. Scars are particularly.
sens.ine to sunlight and can bum
faster than healthy skin. If a scar
were to become burned, it can
remain!. discolored or 'darkened and
may not fade back to match the
color of healthy skin;' Factors such
as genetics and the nature of the
wound play large roles in
determining how visible a scar will
be once the healing process ends.
These factors may be beyond our
control, but shielding the scar from
the sun's rays is one factor that we
can do something about.
If clothing doesn't cover the scar,
make sure to' use a sunscreen.
Although sun blocks that contain
zinc and titanium are better, any
sunscreens ,that have a sun
protection factor (SPF) of 15 or
greater are acceptable. For
professional) medical care for your
skin, call GA INE S VILLE DERMA-
TOLOGY & SKIN SURGERY at
352-332-4442 to schedulee an
appointment. Our office, is
conveniently located at 114 N.W.

The Columbia High. boys
basketball team has achieved
something it hadn't done
since 2002 reach the state
playoffs.
Despite a 54-44 loss in the
District 6-4A title garre on
Saturday night, Columbia
clinched a state playoff berth
by simply reaching the finals.
"I was pleased," Tigers
coach Trey Hosford said.
"Our goal was to win the dis-
trict tournament, but we came
up a little short."
The Tigers were tied with
Ridgeview, 40-40 with just 6:16
left in the game, but an 11-0
spurt by Ridgeview put the
game away. Still, Columbia
has progressedd, in Hosford's
second yea# as head coach.
"It's going to be a great
thing for this program
because it's good for the
young guys to get a taste of
this," Hosford said of the
impending quarterfinal game.
Columbia defeated Paxon
School 64-39 in the first round
of the district tournament,
then beat Lee High 53-38 in
the semifinals to advance to
the championship. And along
the way, Hosford found out
quite a bit about his team.
"We've got some' pretty
good, players," he said. "The
guys' understand that when
they buy into the system, we
can do some good things."
As an example of that,
Hosford cited the last two
meetings with Ridgeview. On
Feb. 4, with the regular sea-
,son district title and a No. 1
seed at stake, the Tigers were
trounced by 38 points,, 81-43.
Then came Saturday night's
strong showing.
"Guys understand that if
they play together as a team,
they can be successful,"
Hosford said.


TIM KIRBY/Lake City Reporter
Columbia High players hold the runner-up trophy for the District 6-4A tournament. The Tigers lost the championship game to
Ridgeview High, 54-44, and will face Jacksonville Raines High in the regional quarterfinals on Thursday.


The coach also praised sev-
eral of his players for their
strong district performances.,
"Byron Shemwell in the
first two games played, out-
standing," Hosford. said.
"Kenny Williams as a fresh,-
man played outstanding: Alvin
Bradley in the first game,
even though he didn't score a
lot, he had four blocks, seven
rebounds 'and two steals.
Kendric (Williams) played,
well, ran the offense well."
Hosford added that he


thought Kendric Williams did
a "great job of controlling the
tempo" against Ridgeview in
the championship game.
Hosford also credited his
bench for its communication
with the players on the court,
calling out switches and
defensive rotations that allo-
wed Columbia to hold Paxon
and Lee to a combined 67
points in the tournament's
first two' games. He also
praised the fans who came out
in droves to watch the team.

"I want to thank all of the
people who came over to sup-
port us," Hosford said. "We
were playing at, a neutral
court, but it felt like we ,were
playing at home. It means a
lot to have that support."
; Now the ultimate test awaits
- a meeting with two-time
defending state champion
Jacksonville Raines High at 7
p.m. on Thursday at Raines.
"It's a great opportunity for
us,"' Hosford said. "That was
what I wanted. It's a great


chance for exposure for our
team."
Raines won the District 5-
4A title on Saturday with a 63-
51 win over Jackson High and
boasts Derwin Kitchen, who
has already committed to the
University of Florida.
With Raines expected to
win its third consecutive state
title, this will be the sternest
task yet in Hosford's coaching
career.
And that's the way he likes


Fort White youth

season starts in March


By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter.comrn
Registration for the up-
coming youth softball and
baseball seasons is almost
finished in Fort White, and
the games are about to begin.
Tammy Sharpe, the secre-
tary for the Fort White Youth
Baseball League, said there
will be 11 teams ranging
from T-ball to senior division,
with 135 kids overall. "It's
about average," Sharpe said
of the numbers.
The first baseball games
will be played on March 12 at
Branford's opening ceremo-
ny. Then Fort White will
have its own opening cere-
monies on March 19 at the
South Columbia Sports Com-
plex. All 135 players will be
introduced in the ceremony,
and a local dignitary will be
on hand to speak and throw


out the first pitch. The Fort
White softball teams will also
be present at the
ceremonies.
'"We're looking forward to
a fun and exciting season,"
Sharpe said.
The Fort White Girls Soft-
ball Association has seen a re-
cord turnout for its upcoming
season. After having enough
girls for only two teams last
year, president Rodney Cole
said this year he's had over 65
girls sign up enough for six
teams. And this Saturday from
9 a.m.-noon is the last sign-up
date left.
"I'm thinking with the new
growth in the area, that's got
a lot to do with it," Cole said.
The schedule for the sea-
son will be finalized at this
Sunday's district meeting.
