ASSOCIATED PRESS
A shopper wheels her cart out of a Winn-Dixie supermarket in Miami Oct. 20. Winn-
Dixie Stores Inc. said Tuesday it has filed for bankruptcy reorganization, less than
two weeks after reporting decreased revenues and increased losses from a year
ago.

Winn-Dixie files for bankruptcy,

says service will be evaluated


Local store to
remain open despite
corporate shift.

By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.com
Winn-Dixie Stores Inc.
filed for bankruptcy reor-
ganization protection
Tuesday and quickly
assured its customers and
employees that its 920
stores, including the one in
Lake City, are not sched-
uled to close.
Under the Chapter 11
reorganization it filed with
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of
New York, Winn-Dixie
spokesperson Wendi
Kopsick said the compa-
ny's Lake City store is not
scheduled to close nor are
layoffs or a reduction in
employee benefits expect-
ed.
Its "Customer Reward"
cards arid specials will also


continue to be honored as
usual. -,. ,..
In a news release regard-
ing its reorganization, the
supermarket said it does
plan to evaluate the per-
formance of every store
and their leases in the com-
pany's real estate portfolio
to achieve "a rationalized
store 'footprint' that allows
the company to operate
profitably and increase
cash flow and return on
invested capital." Kopsick
said that process is expect-
ed to take 30-45 days.
Brandon Biel.a manager
at the Lake City Winn-
Dixie deferred comment to
Winn-Dixie's corporate
offices in Jacksonville.
Employees also were not
available to comment to
media Tuesday.
At midday, business was
steady as usual at the local
store with the parking lot
nearly full and many people
coming and going, some
with small items carried by
hand and others with shop-


ping carts full of groceries.
For the four checkout lines
that were open, out of an
available 10, each was full
with customers.
Coming out of the store
after picking up a few
items, frequent Winn-Dixie
customer Richard Tracey
said he wasn't surprised
that the company filed for
Chapter 11 to reorganize
its operation.
"Not really," he said. "A
lot of the bigger stores
have been going down."
Tracey said Winn-
Dixie's decision to file for
bankruptcy to revamp its
business strategy after
falling profits is nothing
new considering other
recent events in the corpo-
rate world.
But Tracey said he likes
the Lake City Winn-Dixie
store, particularly its meat
department and hopes it
remains after the reorgani-

City confirms ongoing
investigation; officials
tight-lipped on details.
By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter, corn
A tight-lipped internal
investigation against Mayor
Ray Kirkland continues as
City Council unanimously
accepted his resignation
Tuesday.
Although officials have not
released any specifics about
the investigation, Joe Cone,
city manager, said Tuesday he
received a formal complaint
on Feb. 8.


The complaint prompted
city officials to launch an
internal investigation into the
allegations against Kirkland.
City attorney Herbert
Darby said, 'There is a
request of our office to deter-
mine if there has been some
policy of the city (violated)
with regard to employment
not being properly handled."
Kirkland, who was not at
Tuesday's meeting, submitted
a letter to council members
Monday afternoon announc-
ing his resignation. Kirkland
cited health reasons and want-

Post Office boxes moved amid

new expansion construction ,.


Motorists urged to note
Iew drive-through
route to drop off mail.
By ASHLEY CISNEROS
acisneros@lakecityreporter.com
Drop-off boxes at the post
office were relocated Monday
to make way for upcoming
expansion.
The three boxes were for-
mally located at the rear of the
post office in Lake City.
: They were moved to the
front of the building while the
post office was closed for
Presidents' Day on Monday.
"Our maintenance depart-


ment from Jacksonville took'
care of the moving," said
Postmaster Steve Lee.
The relocation took two
men and the aid of a special
machine, Lee said.
"We expect the collection
boxes to stay there until
enough construction is com-
pleted to move them to a more
convenient spot," he said.
The boxes will be relocated
again in late June or the mid-
dle of July.
The post office will be mak-
ing expansions on the current
building and creating addi-
tional employee parking
spaces.
A new entrance for cus-


tomers will also be created on
Madison Street.
Residents may opt to use
other, collection boxes located
around Lake City to avoid
heavy traffic at the main post
office.,
Grocery stores Winn-
Dixie on Marion Avenue
and Save-A-Lot on Duval
Street have collection
boxes.
Three S & S Food Stores
have boxes in addition to
boxes at Wal-Mart, Shands at
Lake Shore, and Lake City
Mall.
In all, there are at least 18
,collection box sites around
the city, Lee said.


ASHLEY CISNEROS/ Lake City Reporter
Residents are finding collection boxes at the Lake City Post Office in a new location Tuesday
morning. The three boxes were moved Monday from the rear of the building to the front while
construction takes place at the post office.

Columbia County donates



generators to local schools


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

FORT WHITE School
and county officials are
working as a team to make
sure Columbia is prepared
for future hurricanes and
natural disasters with storm-
equipped shelters.
The Columbia County
School .Board unanimously
accepted two generators
from the Columbia County
Board of Commissioners
during a meeting in Fort
White Tuesday.
'One of the generators will
be placed at Westside
Elementary School, and the


other will be placed at Fort
White High School.
Both schools were used as
hurricane shelters last year
when local families were dis-
placed by hurricanes
Frances and Jeanne.
"These generators will be
used primarily to run the
waste-water treatment plant
facilities and for limited
lighting during emergency
usage of the facilities," said
Mike Null, school district
director of purchasing.
Null said during past
instances where the facilities
were used for sheltering
needs, the generators were
either rented or leased.


"Now, they (county com-
missioners) have purchased
them and donated them to
be left at the schools," he
said.
The diesel generators,
which have already been
delivered to the schools, are
pre-owned and can provide
125 kilowatts of power.
Null said school district
officials didn't plan to pur-
chase generators for either
of the schools, even though
they are considered as emer-
gency storm sites.
"Since it's normally used
for sheltering purposes, it's
not an acquisition we, the
school district, would nor-


mally consider," he said.
Fort White High and
Westside Elementary
schools are hurricane-hard-
ened shelters, so the build-
ings can be used as host
shelters or emergency shel-
ters during storms.
Null said the donation has
immediate benefits for the
school district.
* "When the shelters are
taken over by emergency
preparedness, the shelters
are typically run by school
staff and having the genera-
tors in place will give imme-
diate usage of those facilities
during emergency situa-
tions," he said.


Commission looks to prioritize projects


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

Developing a fair system to
determine which county
roads need the most work in
the near future has become a
county priority.
As county officials continue
to search for a ranking system
to set future work schedules,
a commissioners' road-priori-
ty workshop has been sched-
uled for 6 p.m. Thursday at
the Columbia County School
Board Administrative


Complex Auditorium, 528 W.
Duval St.
"'The meeting is being held
to see if the board can deter-
mine a fair and reasonable
way of prioritizing projects at
the public works depart-
ment," said Dale Williams,
county manager. '"The priori-
tizing is for any project that
public works does, because'
they are all competing for the
same man hours. The work-
shop is to determine a
methodology that is fair and
reasonable to determine


which projects are done first."
Projects for the public
works department includes
work other than road repair
and construction.
"Once the board decides,
and that methodology is
applied, it's the staff's obliga-
tion to carry it out," he said.
The Thursday meeting will
mark the first time the county
has held a workshop to deter-
mine the county's top road
priorities, but the idea and
concept has been discussed
before.


Williams said he doesn't
believe just one workshop will
provide county officials and
staff with all the options and
alternatives available and the
solution could be months
away after additional work-
shops.
"I really don't know that
they will conclude this in one
workshop," he said.
"We are trying to move in a
direction as when projects
come up, we'll know where
they are in the pecking
order."


Drug task force team makes $1,500 crack bust


Staff report
Three Lake City residents
were recently, arrested and
$1,500 worth of crack cocaine
taken off the streets by mem-
bers of the drug task force.
Three search warrants
were executed on three loca-
tions in Lake City where offi-
cers found drugs and drug
paraphernalia.
"Our local drug problem is
a huge concern of mine, as
well as most of our residents
and I've promised to focus on
this," Sheriff Bill Gootee said.
"There is no automatic, quick
fix for the elimination of
drugs and drug dealers, but
we will continue a steady and
dedicated fight."
On Feb.16, Sophia Wright,


22, was arrested at 628 NE
Congress Avenue, when the
search warrant was served.
Inside, officers found $200
worth of crack cocaine.
Wright was arrested and
charged with possession of
cocaine and possession of
drug paraphernalia. She was
,booked into the Columbia
County Jail and was released
on a $7,500 bond.
On the same day, officers
served a search warrant on a
house at the corner of
Montana Street and Sams
Court and found Terrance
Tolbert, 19, standing in 'the
front door of the house. When
Tolbert, who lives at 707 NW
Virginia Street, saw officers,
he ran and was eventually

$600 were also seized.
The task force is made up
of officers from three agen-
cies and its main focus is to
track down and arrest drug
dealers and remove drugs
from circulation.
'"This task force has a great
track record and they have
more than my support to get
our streets cleaned up,"
Gootee said. "It will take time
but we are in this for the long
haul."

Why are there more
people with bad
credit today?
By Bill Davis:
General Manager M&M Auto Sales
It used to be your credit was
your character, but that was a
long time ago. Today the banks
know that they have helped more
people into credit trouble than at
any other time in our history.
Divorce is more common than
ever and during divorce some-
times maintaining good credit is-
the last thing a couple cares
about.
Going bankrupt has gotten
almost as common as changing
shoes.
Living paycheck to paycheck is
more the norm and when some-
one looses or changes a job the
loss of one or two checks can put
someone in a credit tailspin that
becomes overwhelming.
Rates are low and lots of banks
have relaxed their credit guide-
lines to a point that allows people
who have had problems in the
past to redeem themselves.
Secondary lenders, (high risk)
will give you a car loan even if
your last car (or two) was repos-
sessed as they have higher rates
and can afford to have more of
their loans default;
Some car buyers have gone to
buy here pay here dealers
because they didn't think they
were worthy of a real car loan,
and got stuck with a big car pay-
ment and a junky car.
One of the biggest problems I
have at M&M Auto Sales, is get-
ting people with credit problems
to understand that they are not
alone and that there are lenders
that want to give them a second
chance with a nice dependable
car.
A lot of folks that got in over
their heads in the past will make
great, credit customers in the
future because they remember
what it was like to have good
credit.
If you wish you could get back
on track with your credit, and you
need a newer dependable car,
skip the buy here pay here week-
ly payment trap, and give our
store a call. You know where
M&M Auto Sales is located on US
90, just don't let the nice newer
cars scare you off.
.1 believe you get further by giv-
ing trustworthy. cars to trustwor-
thy people who will come back to
you again and again. Call us at

CRP check



could help



save lives

It's a relatively new test that is inex-
S pensive and could, in the long run,
save'your life. CRP, or c-reactive pro-
tein, is a natural protein produced
and secreted by the liver and too
much of it can cause damage to arterial
walls and eventually plague the victim with
heart disease.
New findings in the New England
Journal of Medicine have linked the pro-,
tein to the heart ailment. In some cases, it
could be considered as dangerous as high
cholesterol.
Checking one's CRP levels 'is as easy as
having blood drawn and the process is
very similar to checking the cholesterol of
a patient. The test is a simple request that
should be made to'.youridoctor and the,ou4- .
come can normally be presented by a rep-
utable lab within 24,.hours,
l"'tke'iTroSt allmet, th-1e condition can be
regulated with diet and exercise and can
be controlled in other ways with doctor-
prescribed medication.
The test for CRP is relatively inexpen-
sive, costing less than $20 at most labs in
the region.
Don't overlook this newly discovered
health concern. Don't panic over it, but
don't be afraid to have your levels checked.
It could turn out to be a lifesaver.

No weeds to pull in heaven


H ave you ever thought about what
Heaven will be like? The Bible
assures us that it will be a place of
peace, rest, and happiness, with
none of the earthly worries and
problems, such as death, disease, and crime.
Well, after a bone-weary week of trying to, get
a head start on terminating some of the first-
appearing spring weeds that try to take over
my lawn and flower beds, it occurred to me
today that there just won't be any weeds in
Heaven.
For all the years I've been a homeowner, I
have' waged an on-going battle with weeds.
From insidious clumps of crabgrass and
stealthy dollar weed:to those gigantic, thick-
stalked thistle-like monsters that have thorny
.- trunks as.big.as a small tree, I detest them all.
Why can't grass just grow and be pretty, with-
out being constantly" threatened by these "
invades?7-Wh-y are weeds hardy enough' to.
grow in the poorest soil,.while grass, flowers
and vegetables have to be nourished, trimmed,
pampered, and kept free of these, choking
botanical predators to survive?
I guess everyone who plans to go to Heaven
has his or her own idea about what to expect.
I've heard some say it won't be Heaven for
them if that special pet isn't there. My mother
and I had a philosophical discussion about that
once, and she said she really didn't believe our
earthly pets would go to Heaven after their
deaths, since animals don't have souls. But she
reassured me she didn't believe. God would
hold it against me if I thought Miss Kitty would
be joining me up there. She also expressed
doubt that her own cat, notorious for its unso-
ciable and downright hostile attitude toward.
just about everybody, would ever make it
through the pearly gates. As I was relating this
to Don later, Miss Kitty suddenly jumped up on
the kitchen counter, where she knows she isn't
supposed to go, and I started scolding her. Don
observed aloud, "Uh-oh, Miss Kitty ain't gonna
make it, either.". .
A friend of ours once said his idea of Heaven
was a giant Home. Depot with no prices. He
could go and help himself to anything in the
store and build whatever' he wanted, without
ever having to pay for'it. Another friend, who
constantly fights a weight problem, said her
Heaven was going to have a doughnut shop
filled with delicious pastries that have no calo-
ries.
People like Don, who spend much of their


CAROLYN
OLDER


life on earth hampered by physical disabilities,
don't really care what else Heaven offers
beyond that "new body" we are promised.
Being able to walk again and being without
pain will be the greatest reward he could hope
for.
I know that on a scale of human problems
and their relative weight, weeds rate pretty low
,on.the list. But I also know that if God is con-
cerned about the fall of a sparrow and the num-
ber of hairs on our heads, He in His infinite
wisdom is concerned about making us happy
in Heaven. Therefore I feel sure He has
reserved for me a flower bed more spectacular
than anything on this earth. The roses at
Buckingham Palace will look anemic com-
pared with the ones I'll have in my Heavenly
garden. There will be colors- and varieties
never even imagined by humankind. I'll also
have a rainbow of snapdragons, petunias, and
other annuals. I might even have an orchid or
two! There won't be any bugs, fungus, mites,
or other pests to threaten their beauty and per-
fection. Each day I'll go out and gather some
fresh ones for bouquets to fill my Heavenly
home with their fresh fragrance.
And the grass in.my lawn will be a heavenly
variety that is green and. lush, and only grows
where it is supposed to grow, never encroach-
ing on the flower beds or causing cracks in the
streets of gold.
It won't need mowing, but will be perpetual-
ly beautiful.
There. will never be a freeze to leave it
brown and lifeless. No chinch bugs or mole
crickets will burrow their pesky little bodies
in its roots! And best of all, there will never,
ever, ever be any weeds to choke and destroy
it.

Thahks from
Blue-Grey Army

On.behalf of the Blue-Grey
Army, Inc., we greatly appre-
ciate the excellent coverage of
the 2005 Olustee Battle
Festival. The Reporter did a
superb job before and after
this successful event. The
tabloid insert, was both
informative and, interesting.
We are proud to have you as a
sponsor.
Special thanks also goes to
our Title Sponsor, First
Federal Savings Bank, who
provides the financial founda-
tion for us to survive the
"lean" years when we have
adverse weather conditions.
Without their support, it
would be difficult to meet our
expenses, which I am proud
to say, we always have.


The Columbia County
Board of County
Commissioners and the City
of Lake City stood behind us
100 percent and provided vital
support in many areas. Our
Chamber of Commerce .and
Tourist Development Council,
through the'hard work of Jim
Poole and Harvey Campbell,
provided important informa-
tion and publicity throughout
the Southeast.
Public safety was para-
mount and Sheriff Bill Gootee
and Chief of Police. David
Allbritton had their superb
agencies out in full force.
Their presence provided a
safe environment and I am
pleased to report there were
no adverse incidents, includ-
ing the great parade.
The key to this entire event
are the volunteer members of
Sthe Blue-Grey Army. They are


all unpaid, other than the sat-
isfaction of putting on a family
oriented event that everyone
of all ages can enjoy. To keep
the festival successful and
growing, we always encour-
age new members to come on
board and get the emotional
rewards of helping their com-
munity.
I would be' remiss if I did
not mention Faye Bowling-
Warren, who is the "glue" that
holds our volunteer organiza-
tion together. She works virtu-
ally non-stop and is truly a
delightful person who is a
strong asset not only to the
Blue-Grey Army, but also our
entire community.
Again, thanks to the
Reporter. You truly lived up to
your motto of "Newspapers
get things done."

Rose added


to Olustee


legend, lore

David Rose was passionate about
his role as a living historian. He
loved serving as a Confederate
reenactor and he loved recreat-
ing the Battle of Olustee.
His last request was to become a perma-
nent part of the festivities by having his
ashes scattered on the battlefield over the
weekend. He had requested the proper
send-off of a soldier having his remains
blasted from a cannon during a somber cer-
emony at the conclusion of Saturday's activ-
ities.
Rose died of stomach cancer last June,
but following a majestic funeral in Palm
Beach County, one that saw his body lie in
state in a reenactor's vigil, his body was cre-
mated and portions were spread in differ-
ent areas.
Olustee was to be his final stop.
But the government intervened and
stopped the procedure of firing Rose's
ashes from a cannon during last weekend's
Olustee Battle Festival.
It seems there are laws prohibiting the
spreading of ashes on federal or state prop-
erty, regardless of the circumstances. The
mandate covers state parks and federal
grounds such as national 'forest lands.
Reenactors here last weekend were told not
to even think about blasting Rose's ashes
from a cannon volley.
This is where the legend part of the story
comes into play.
The big question is whether or not some
of his loyal friends sneaked his ashes onto
the battlefield and gave the man the proper
burial he requested.
There was a memorial service held.
That's a fact. What happened after the pub-
lic left the campsite area of the reenactment
is a mystery. It will always, be a mystery.
The activities will be preserved, left to be
retold around the campfires next year and
beyond. No one is saying for sure what took
place. It's now part of the ldre that makes
the Civil War period so interesting even if
this is a modern-day reenactor's tale.
David Rose and the legacy of his govern-
ment-banned funeral will be forever brand-
ed into Olustee legend.
The irony is fantastic: A battle-seasoned
Confederate reenactor's last request denied
by the federal government. How interest-
ing.
At first, the mention of a battlefield bur-
ial might seem strange, but the more it was
discussed, the more it seemed like, the
appropriate action. Very few people in Lake
City or the region outside of reenactors -
knew David Rose, but now we are forever
linked with him since he has allowed us.to
share in his burial request and record the
saga for history's preservation.
To say the least, his request is fascinating
and it tells a lot about the life of David Rose.
His desire gives us a window to the man's,
spirit, his soul. We can't help but think
about his last request and. smile with the
thought that he got the most out of his days
walking the earth.
At least in some small, special way, he
didn't allow death to completely cheat him
out of life. Rose's family visited Columbia
County this weekend and I salute them and
I sympathize with them. They lost a dear
loved one. The rest of us lost a man that, in
death, fascinates us.
I wish I could have known him in life.

MAYOR
Continued from page 1A

ing to spend more time with
his family. But he also con-
firmed the existence of the
internal investigation, but
refused comment on the
nature of the allegations.
Darby said he planned to
perform "due diligence" in the
investigation and could not
give a timeline for when it may
be complete. However, he said


he would present his findings
before council at which time
the allegations and any associ-
ated documents would be pub-
lic record.
Councilman George Ward,
serving as vice mayor, will
now serve as mayor until a
special election can be held.
Under city charter, the elec-
tion must occur between 60
and 90 days.
City Council set the wheels
in motion Tuesday for the spe-
cial election, asking the city


clerk and attorney to schedule
the qualifying period for new
mayoral candidates. Council'
also sought to coordinate
efforts with the Columbia
County Supervisor of
Elections Office.
City Council will hear a
progress report about the spe-
cial election during its regular
meeting on March 7.
If a current council meinber
wants to run for mayor, he or
she must first resign from the
council.


In other business the coun-
cil:
N Unanimously voted to
allow beer sales in a designat-
ed area at the Hog Wild, Pig
Crazy barbecue cook-off on
April 1 and 2. It will be the
third year the sale of beer has
been allowed at the event.
Both event organizer
Heyward Christie and Lake
City Police Chief David
Allbritton said the sale of alco-
hol has not resulted in any
problems in 2003 or 2004.


Approved a lease to
Nextel to put a wireless phone
service antennae on the city's
water tower just north of Lake
DeSoto. The city will receive
about $16,000 annually for the
lease with the amount to
increase 3 percent annually.
Verizon Wireless already
has an antennae on the tower,
but the Nextel equipment is
expected not to interfere with
its performance.
Darby said the city's lease
agreement with both Nextel


and Verizon have provisions
that the equipment will not
interfere with each other and
that the city is not responsible
if it does.
Agreed to help resident
Jesse Caldwell Jr., with a
stormwater drainage problem
on his property at the corner
of Fronie Street and Jackson
Street. Caldwell told council
adjacent property is contribut-
ing to poor water movement
causing it to overflow onto his
property.

while license suspended.
Also in the car was a' small
child who was released to the
Florida Department of
Children and Families. An offi-
cer went to a residence off
County Road 245 to notify the
child's mother that the child
had been taken into protective
custody. While at the residence,
the officer was invited inside
where' he observed drug para-
phernalia and various ingredi-
ents used to manufacture the
illegal substance in plain sight
A search warrant was
obtained and members of the
drug task force were called in
to investigate. Investigators
found all'the chemicals and
equipment necessary to manu-
facture methamphatmine in the
form of a "Red P' clandestine
lab.
'To have this lab taken out of
operation is a tremendous step
in our fight against drugs,"
Columbia County Sheriff Bill,

have the whole gym at LCCC to
showcase their research.
Students began setting up
their projects Tuesday, from
1;:30 p.m., to 6 p.m. with the help
of members of LCCC's Phi
Theta Kappa chapter. Judging
will take place today, with
Kelley in charge. Awards will
be coordinated by Allen and
given out, in Union County
Thursday.
Brady Clark, an eighth-grad-
er at Lake Butler, Middle
School, is one of the students
hoping to fare well. His project,
about how bugs are attracted
to different types of light,.
helped him move on to the
state competition last year.
He's tweaked the project a bit
and hopes to do well again.
"He learned from last year
and, improved this year," said-
-his mother. Judy Clark.
y Brady's science teacher last
year, Marcie Tucker, said the
fair is not only good for devel-
oping scientifically knowledge-
able students, but the process
prepares them for the future.
"Businesses want employ-
ees who think for themselves,"


Gootee said. "What started as a
minor traffic stop turned into a
huge find. Investigators from
the task force believe this lab
and these suspects are part of a
large organized group of 'meth
cookers' and now we are that
much closer to shutting them
down."
Investigators estimate the lab
had been in operation for at
least a year and probably pro-
duced atleast two ounces of the
illegal substance each week.
The street value of an ounce of
methamphetamine is $1,500.
Arrested at the residence
were Amanda Williams, 20;
Misty Harperl 24; Darrell
Ratliff, 36; Robert Cutford, 19
and Amy Geiger, 18.
Williams and Harper were
charged with possession of
methamphetamine and pos-
session of drug parapherna-
lia. They were each being
held in the Columbia County
Jail on $11,000 bond.
Darrell Ratliff was charged
with possession of metham-
phetamine, possession of
drug paraphernalia and


and participating in science
fairs gives students the oppor-
tunity to put those skills to
work, she said.
Tucker said that hot topics
for projects in recentyears have
been related to human and ani-
mal behavior. Jessica Stanton's
project is evidence of the trend:
Stanton's project, which is
about color perception, is in its
eighth year of research. Her
project this year focuses on
how color perception affects
taste.

violence. He was being held
on $12,000 bond.
Geiger and Cutford were
each charged with possession,
of methamphetamine, posses-
sion of drug paraphernalia
and possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana.
They were each being held
on $12,000 bond.
The task force is made up
of investigators from the
Drug Enforcement, Agency,
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, Columbia
County Sheriff's Office,
Suwannee County Sheriff's
Office, Live, Oak Police
Department and the Lake
City Police Department.
A crew, contracted by
DEA, was called in to proper-
ly store for transport and then
destroy the highly toxic
chemicals.
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
,was also called- in to deter-
mine if substances buried
contaminated the soil or
groundwater. I


ple perceive -color more
through visual or auditory stim-
ulation. Without giving away
too much of her findings,
Stanton, who as a 10th-grade
student is taking classes at
LCCC, said visual perception
won out.
That project propelled the
Columbia Counity high school
student to the state contest.
where she won second place.
From there, she went to the
national competition in
Portland, Ore.
She didn't win' in Oregon.
but there's always this year.

said.
"I've been shopping ,there

Kopsick said as a part of its
reorganization, Winn-Dixie
plans to enhance its product
merchandising and selection
of perishable foods.
Also,- she said. "customer
service is clearly a priority
going forward and the compa-
ny is reviewing all aspects of


the business to identify where
improvement and changes
need to be made."
Kopsick would not say if
customer service was consid-
ered a problem at Winn-Dixie
stores like Lake City's, but
going forward she said "I
know it's a key priority."

LCCC pounds out two straight wins

TIM KIRBY/Lake City Reporte
Lake City Community College pitcher
Duente Heath warms up prior to his
victory over Manatee Community College
on Tuesday.


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com

Lake City Community College
pounded out 18 hits Tuesday on the
heels of a 20-hit day on Sunday. The
Timberwolves beat Manatee
Community College (12-5) 9-2..
Duente Heath (2-0) benefited from
Tuesday's onslaught, but he hardly
needed it. Heath turned in his best
performance so far this spring. He
gave up seven hits, walked one and
struck out nine in eight innings.
Hearth only allowed three base run-
ners after giving up a two-run home
run to Brian Peacock with one out in
the fourth inning.
'This is the deepest he's gone,"
coach Tom Clark said about his
starter. "I was going to send him
back out there before that last inning
r lasted so long."
Damon Brewer pitched the ninth.
He gave up a hit and a walk, but
Stephen Rassel bailed him out with
an unassisted double play at first


base.
It was the second double play of
the game for the 'Wolves, who com-
mitted one error. Plus, catcher
Brandon Hall threw out a runner try-
ing to take second on a ball that
bounced wide of the plate, and Chris
Petrie gunned down a runner trying
to advance to third with a rifle throw
from right field.
However, it was Lake City's
offense that was most impressive.
The Wolves loaded the bases in five
of the eight innings. Lake City strug-
gled to score runs the first three
times the bases were loaded, but Hall
came through later with a two-run
single and a two-run double.
Hall finished 3-for-5, following a
four-hit day on Sunday. He was back
behind the plate for both games,
after having to be the designated hit-
ter for a stretch with a sore shoulder.
"I am more into the game, because
the catcher is involved with every
single play," Hall said. "I watched
some video and changed my swing a


little bit. I am trying to keep my front
side closed and drive the ball up the
middle."
With Hall behind the plate, Mark
Davis is able to DH and Lake City
has Rassel at first and Avery Johnson
in center field for better defense.
"We are much better offensively,"
Clark said. "We are able to do more
things."
That offense started in the first
inning with consecutive singles by
Matt Dallas, Luis Sanchez and Petrie,
but Manatee wiggled out of the jam.
Lake City pushed across two runs
in the second as Johnson singled to
score Rassel (error) and Sanchez
drove in Augustin Montanez (single)
with a ground out. Hall, Davis and
Travis Jones singled in the third
inning and Montanez scored a run
with a sacrifice fly. Johnson added his
second hit, but the Wolves stranded
three.
Petrie had an RBI-single in the

Fort White wins first track meet


By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter.com

FORT WHITE History
was made on Tuesday when
Fort White High hosted its
first track meet since the
school was built in 2000.
Fittingly, this day of firsts
ended with the track team
compiling 194 points in its
first win of the season over
Hamilton County High.
"As my two helpers, Wy-
nona (Daniels) and Caitlin
(Eichorn) would say, it went
pretty good except I'm a little
unorganized," Fort White
boys .track coach Demetric
Jackson said. "'But I'm happy."
Nicole Waddington won
three track events the 3200
meters, the 1600 meters and
the 800 meters.
Waddington .won the 3200
meters in 13.34 and blew away
the, competition in the 800
with a time of 2:48. She won
the 1600 with a time of 6:57.
"I was kind of relieved it
was my last lap because I was
tired," Waddington said after
the 800.
Jonathan James, Elijah
Serrano, Niecey Alexander
each won two track events,
while Joanne Whalen won the
.discus and the shot put.
James took first in the 100,
the 200 and was part of the
first-place 4x100-meter relay
team.
"I thank God I was able to
come in first place because it
really is an accomplishment,"
James said. In the 100, James
torched the field with a time
of 11.1.
"I'm learning how to
breathe in a pattern now, just
taking my time," he said.
Serrano dominated both of

his hurdles events, winning
the 110-meter hurdles with a
time of 18:45, and taking the
300 hurdles in 42.5. He was
also part of the first-place
4x400-meter relay team.
"I felt pretty good about it,"
Serrano said of his win in the
300. "I don't really practice
300-meter hurdles because
it's really an endurance race.
And like I said before, I don't
think I have too much
endurance."
Alexander took first place


in the high jump with a height
of 4 feet, 4 inches, and she
won the 100-meter hurdles
with a time of 20.5.
Tim Robinson cruised to an
easy win in the 400 with a time
of 57.9, and he ran the first leg
of the 4x800.'
"I've been trying to get
back in shape since the sum-
mer ever since I had my
injury," Robinson said after
the 400. "I'm pretty happy
with my time. Glad I came out
here. It was pretty good


competition."
The highlight of the meet
was the last event, the 4x800
relay. The Indians started out
in last place, then gradually
moved into second. Serrano
ran the third leg and closed
the gap with Hamilton, then
James Pope accelerated down
the stretch and easily won the
event in a time of 3:52.
"I'm real excited," Pope
said. "I feel real good about
it."
Jackson was pleased with


Lady Tigers overcome nemesis Buchholz


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com

Columbia High softball ran
out to a 6-4 win over Buchholz
High at home on Tuesday.
"It is a sweet victory," CHS
head coach Mary Hale said.
"It's the first time we have
beaten them since 2002. We
didn't do anything pretty, but
a win is a win."
The Lady Tigers manufac-
tured the run-an-inning aver-
age by taking advantage, of
Buchholz errors and running
the bases hard.
It started in the first inning,
when Marie Croft made it to
second base on a throwing
error. Megan Bart beat out a
bunt, as Croft moved to third
base. Rachel Parker scored
Croft on a ground ball.
It was Chelsea Blair who
produced the run in the sec-
ond inning. She reached on an
error, stole second and third
and scored when the catcher
threw the ball into left field.

Parker watch Buchholz High players prior to their 6-4 win on
Tuesday.


In the third inning, Brittany
Johnston and Bart were safe
on errors. Johnston stole sec-
ond, was sacrificed to third by
Croft and scored on a wild


pitch. Bart stole second, went
to third on the wild pitch and
scored on a sacrifice fly by
Jenna Payne. Parker reached
on a fielder's choice in the


inning and stole a base.
Kori Drake pounded the
ball over the third baseman's
head for a hit to lead off the
fourth inning. Ashley
Stalnaker bunted Drake to
second and she stole third.
Johnston walked and forced a
rundown and Drake scored
before the tag.
Payne singled to lead off
the sixth inning. She stole sec-
ond and scored when the
shortstop could not handle
Drake's ground ball.
"We have got just about
everybody coming back, and
we are used to it," Parker said
about the attack offense. "We
expect to be working in sync.
I am trying to get some things
worked out in my swing, but
it's just little stuff. Like Coach
said, we don't care how we do
it, it just has to work."
Payne pitched for Columbia

"I think we ran decent," he
said. "As far as our, sprinters
and our distance runners, I
think we competed well."
Kemberly Jackson was also
happy with the way her girls
ran.
"Overall I think we did a
pretty good job," she said. "I
expected our middle distance
and distance runners to do a
good job."

Santa Fe High on Tuesday.
"Overall, our attitude was
much better going to Santa
Fe," Tigers coach Andy
Bennett said. "I was
pleased. We never gave up."
Columbia was down 2-0 '

Try some green to chase away winter blues


By SUSAN SLOAN
Special to the Reporter

As warmer spring weather
is chasing away the winter
blues, try some green. Green
cabbage, that is. A cool weath-
er crop with a harvest season
in North Florida running
from January to April, time is
running out to enjoy this crop
fresh -from Florida fields. A
member of the cruciferous
family that also includes broc-
coli and cauliflower, green
cabbage is part of a group of
vegetables high in antioxi-
dants. A good source of
Vitamins A and C, green cab-
bage also. contains sul-
foraphane and iberin, com-
pounds that produce a potent
antioxidant called glu-
tathione. Antioxidants are
said to remove harmful can-
cer causing agents from the
body. Very low in calories,
cabbage is a good choice for-
those watching their weight.
Although available year
round, local cabbage is har-
vested most heavily in the
cooler winter and. spring
months. When buying cab-
bage, look for firm, clean
compact heads. One of the
group of vegetables that is
ethylene sensitive, store away
from fruits such as apples,
cantaloupes, mangos, peach-
es and avocados. Ethylene
gas is a plant hormone that is
sometimes used commercial-
ly to ripen bananas or toma-
toes.'But while it is a natural
ripening agent, it can cause
deterioration of sensitive pro-
duce. Avoid, storing sensitive
produce in the same refriger-
ator compartment with ethyl-
ene producing produce.


Regarded as common by some, the use of cabbage can also be exotic or sophisticated.


Cabbage will last longer if
stored in a cold (32 degrees to
40 degrees) refrigerator
crisper.
Cabbage is the subject of a
Greek myth that says that the
god of wine, Dionysus, pun-
ished a prince for trampling
grapes and that cabbage was
the result of his tears. This
legend furthered a belief that
cabbage could prevent intoxi-
cation, and the Romans con-
sumed large quantities of cab-
bage before a night of carous-
ing.
Not native to America, the
English first brought head
cabbage to the New World (as
opposed to the loose leaf vari-


eties that are also available)
that thrived and soon was as
popular as the potato. Today,
many cultivars of cabbage can
be found in the grocery store,
from the loose leaf Savoy to
the long narrow leafed
Chinese cabbage.
Regarded as common by
some, the use of cabbage can
also be exotic or sophisticat-
ed. A popular side dish on
many southern buffets,
steamed or boiled cabbage is
easily made at home.
Because cabbage loses some
of its nutrient value by over-
cooking, try to limit the time
cooked.
To steam, cut the cabbage


into thin slices or wedges,
place in a large pot with 1 cup
boiling water. Steam. for 20
minutes (check for doneness)
and remove as soon as the
cabbage reaches the consis-
tency that your family likes.
Add butter, -salt and pepper
and serve. Many cooks have
variations of this recipe using
bacon fat; salt pork or onions
for a different flavor. Some
compatible seasonings for
cabbage would include car-
away, tarragon, savory and
dill.
For something a little more
sophisticated, why not try a
hot cabbage slaw.


Hot Cabbage Slaw
From the New York Times
Cook Book

3 cups shredded green or.
white cabbage
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
1/2 teaspoon tarragon, or
more
Freshly ground pepper to
taste

Put cabbage in a 1 quart
pan. Rinse and drain.
Sprinkle with salt, cover, and
place over medium heat.
When the cover is hot to the
touch, reduce the heat to low
and cook for 5 minutes. Be
careful not to scorch the cab-
bage.

Add butter, milk, caraway
seeds, tarragon and pepper.
Stir to blend. Bring to a boil.
Serve hot.
And for something a little
more exotic, the Doubleday
Cookbook's recipe for Spicy
East Indian Baked Cabbage
might be something to try.

Spicy East Indian Baked
Cabbage
Serves 4

4 cups finely chopped cab-
bage
1 medium sized yellow
onion, peeled and minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup flaked coconut
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
Very small pinch crushed
hot red chili peppers
2 eggs, lightly beaten


1/4 cup cold water

Preheat oven to 350
degrees. Mix all ingredients
and spoon into a buttered 1-
1/2 quart casserole. Cover
and bake about 50 minutes
until cabbage is tender;
uncover and bake 10 minutes
longer to crisp the surface
slightly.

And for a main meal idea,
try a goulash made with cab-
bage.

Cabbage-Sauage Beef
Goulash
Recipe By: Jo Anne Merrill

1 pound pork sausage
1 pound ground beef
1 onion chopped
28 ounces chopped toma-
toes
6 ounces tomato paste
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 tablespoon chili pow-
der
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon red pepper
flakes
10 cups shredded cab-
bage

The spiciness of the pork
depends upon your taste.
Experiment with a mixture of
mild and hot. In a large kettle,
brown sausage, beef and
onion; drain well. Add remain-
ing ingredients except cab-
bage, mix well. Stir in cab-
bage and simmer 20-25 min-
utes or until cabbage is ten-
der.

Serving Ideas: Serve with
French bread and a pot of
pinto beans.
