City mayoral



election set



for May 10


A sinking problem


So far two people have
announced their
interest in running.

By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.con
The city has set its special
mayoral election for May 10,
giving potential candidates
about three weeks to jump
through the required hoops
to run for the seat.
; During a special-called
meeting held at City Hall
Tuesday, after City Attorney
:Herbert Darby read a resolu-
tion setting the dates and
:guidelines for the election,
'City Council unanimously
agreed to accept the parame-
ters with no discussion.
While the city will help
qualify the candidates and
keep track of their campaign
finances, the Columbia
County Supervisor of
Elections Office will adminis-
ter the election itself, for the
city's seven voting precincts.


Vice Mayor and
Councilman George Ward,
who by city charter has
taken over for former Mayor
Ray Kirkland until a new
mayor is elected, said the
city must pay for the entire
election, which is currently
estimated to cost between
$15,000 and $20,000.
The resolution approved
by council sets the period to
qualify by petition method
from today until March 11.
For the special election, qual-
ifying by petition requires a
candidate to get petition
cards signed by 5 percent of
the registered voters in city
limits.
The official qualifying
week will then be March 21-
25, with candidates who
choose not to qualify by peti-
tion able to pay a fee of 6 per-
cent of the mayor's salary,
which at $17,239 would be
about $1,034.

Shands at Lake Shore may be one of the many hospitals in
the state that would be negatively affected by the approval
of Gov. Jeb Bush's proposed budget cuts. Until the final plan
is approved, officials say it is too early to make predictions
on its impact.

Shands at Lake Shore

may face budget cuts


Entire hospital system
could lose $20M under
governor's plan.

By ASHLEY CISNEROS
acisneros@lakecityreporter.com
Officials at Shands
HealthCare say it is too soon
to predict how Gov. Jeb
Bush's proposed budget cuts
will affect their hospitals.
Should his plan be
approved, Shands could lose
some $20 million from its net-
work of hospitals.
Bush proposed to eliminate
hospital care from the
Medical Needy program.
The program is used by
some 36,000 residents in the
state who don't qualify for
Medicaid but lack health
insurance as well.
The cuts are part of a larger
plan for a $1.2 billion reduc-
tion in Medicaid allocations in


the $61.6 billion budget.
Lance Skelly, spokesman
for Shands HealthCare, says it
is far too early to tell what this
could mean for hospitals.
"The Legislature is not even
in session yet so a lot of things
can change when they start,"
Skelly said. "The next four to
six weeks could bring many
changes to the governor's
proposal."
He said that a host of other
issues will be considered and
other items could be cut
instead.
"We cannot determine what
this will mean for any hospi-
tals because the plan has not
been approved yet," Skelly
said.
If Bush's existing proposed
plan was approved, Skelly
calls the effects "disastrous."

Water from a 200-acre pond off Pinemount Road surges into a sinkhole that opened early Tuesday morning only feet from
the home of Red and Susie Roberts. With help of the rushing water, the sinkhole continued to expand throughout the
day.

Ground continues to swallow up property in

west Columbia County; more damage expected


Officials estimate more
than 120 million gallons
of water flooded the hole.

By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter.com
A growing sinkhole swal-
lowed land and threatened a
house west of Lake City on
Pinemount Road, beginning
Tuesday morning.
Emergency personnel,
civic leaders and curious
onlookers stood by as water
from a nearby 200-acre pond
poured into the expanding
hole.
At around 5 p.m., the large,
oval-shaped sinkhole meas-
ured about 200 feet by 75feet
or about the size of a football
field. The sinkhole contained
around 120 million gallons of
water. Officials estimate
water is filling the hole at the
rate of 10 million gallons an
hour.
Later that day, a smaller
sinkhole was found down
Pinemount Road from the
first. Late Tuesday after-
noon, the second sinkhole
measured about 12 feet,
according to both Sheriff's
Office spokeswoman Laurie
Windham and Capt. Frank
Armijo of the Lake City Fire
Department. The second
hole may not be associated
with the first, and officials
are monitoring it for the time
being, Windham said.


A sinkhole off Pinemount Road is seen from the roof of a house Tuesday as water flows


in from Pueschel's Pond.

The homeowners, Red
and Susie Roberts, saw what
they thought was a sinkhole
around 5 a.m. and called
911, said Harvey Campbell,
executive director of the
Columbia County Tourist
Development Council.
Campbell was one of several
area leaders who watched
the sinkhole develop, along
with county commissioners

officials to keep people at a safe distance.


George Skinner and
Elizabeth Porter.
Armijo said his depart-
ment was dispatched at 6:10
a.m. When he got there, the
sinkhole was 60 feet in diam-
eter.
The water from
Pueschel's Pond, along with
the ground becoming
increasingly weak, expand-
ed the sinkhole around 9
a.m., collapsing across the
Roberts' driveway and form-
ing a second hole steps away
from the main house and a
storage building. Ox Pond,


across the street, was sand-
bagged around this time as
well.
By noon, the two holes
grew closer to one another
and formed the massive
sinkhole.
There's no way to know
the exact cause of the sink-
hole, but officials are assum-
ing the recent rains aggra-
vated the already saturated
ground from hurricanes
Frances and Jeanne.

City eyes low bid for water project


~" All


By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.com

The city is one step closer
to awarding a bid for what
will likely be its most expen-
sive project ever.
In the ongoing .quest to
construct a new $12.5 mil-
lion water treatment plant
east of Lake City near Lake
City Community College, the
city recently opened previ-
ously sealed bids received
from companies vying to
build the primary facility.
The work does not include
site preparation, well drilling
and installation, and installa-
tion of an advanced ozone
water treatment system.
City Manager Joe Cone


Cone


said Ottega
Industrial
Contractors of
Jacksonville
had the lowest
bid at $9.1 mil-
lion and will
likely be
awarded the
contract, being
the lowest bid-


der.
"We think that's a very,
very good price," he said.
The city will pay for the
bulk of the water treatment
plant out of a State Revolving
Fund (SRF) loan.
Cone said the state has
already committed $10 mil-
lion for the low interest loan
that the city would use to pay


Ottega if they are awarded
the bid. Because of the SRF
loan, before council can offi-
cially vote to grant the com-
pany the contract, Cone said
the executive agreement has
to be sent to the state for
approval. He said that would
not likely happen before
council meets Monday.
"We are working on the
agreement with the plans to
be sent to Tallahassee,"
Cone said.
If Ottega does receive the
bid at $9.1 million, Cone said
with the remaining $900,000
of the SRF's $10 million, will
be used to install 20-inch and
36-inch water lines from the
wellfield to the plant facility
itself.


The additional $2.5 million
for the project will be paid
out of the city's water and
sewer reserve funds and will
go to pay the site prepara-
tion, ozone system and well
installation.
Cone said the city has
never worked with Ottega
before, but researched its
references and found "no
negative reports."
The city would be paying
even more for the new water
treatment plant, but was able
to get the use of land for free
from the Suwannee Water
Management District.
Cone said the district has
discussed deeding the land
to the city, but retains owner-
ship for the time being.


Judicial Circuit judge finalists interviewed


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

The Third Judicial Circuit
could have a new judge within
two months.
Gov. Jeb Bush is expected
to appoint a new judge to the
Third Judicial Circuit to fill
the unexpired term and
vacancy that was created
when Judge Thomas J.
Kennon Jr. in Live Oak decid-
ed to retire after serving
more than 30 years on the
county and circuit bench.
Kennon's retirement
became effective Monday and
Gov. Bush is making the
appointment to fill the remain-
der of his term, which was set
to expire in 2006.
Three finalists have been
selected by the Third Judicial
Nominating Commission.
Those finalists must be inter-
viewed by members of the
governor's staff before the
appointment is made.
"Our circuit judicial riomi-


nating commission recom-
mended the three to go
before the governor and at
that point it's out of our
hands," said Guy Norris,
chairman of the Third Judicial
Circuit Nominating
Commission.
The three finalists for the
judgeship are: George R.
"Bob" Dekle, an assistant
state attorney from Lake City;
Tom Stone, an assistant pub-
lic defender from Madison,
and David Fina, an assistant
state attorney from Live Oak.
"They have a lot of experi-
ence and all three are excel-
lent lawyers," Norris said.
The commission, which is
composed of nine members,
was tasked with recommend-
ing nominees to the governor.
The commission is appointed
by the governor and most
members are attorneys, with
the only exceptions being for-
mer Hamilton County Sheriff
Joe Peavey, and Columbia
County Commissioner


Elizabeth Porter.
Dennis Roberts, a past
chairman of the local judicial
nominating commission, said
it isn't uncommon for such a
large number of applicants to
apply for an open judgeship.
"It's much easier to apply
than go through the tough job
of running for judgeship," he
said. "They (nominating com-
mission) interviewed the 14
candidates and narrowed it,
down to three candidates to
send to the governor. They
could have sent anywhere
from three to six names."
Roberts said he believed
the three finalists were inter-
viewed Tuesday by the gover-
nor's staff.
The Third Judicial Circuit
currently has six circuit
judges in its seven-county
area, which includes
Columbia, Dixie, Hamilton,
Lafayette, Madison,
Suwannee and Taylor coun-
ties.
Whoever is selected to fill


the unexpired term will have
to seek election in all seven
counties at the end of the
term if they want to retain
the position.
The judge's office can be
located anywhere within the
seven counties of the circuit,
but that particular judgeship
has been historically located
in Suwannee or Hamilton
counties.
"It's likely, but not manda-
tory this judge will maintain
an, office in Suwannee
County," Norris said.
Norris said the governor
is supposed to be limited
from 60 days from the date
he receives the nominations
to appoint the new judge.
"We conducted the inter-
views and deliberations in
one day, Jan. 28, and submit-
ted the information Jan. 31 to
the governor," he said. "It
has not been unusual for
governors to take more than
60 days to make the appoint-
ment.

FWC seeks input for


hunting regulations


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission is looking at the
possibility of altering some of
its hunting and freshwater fish-
ing regulations.
As the agency considers
changes for next year, it is
hoping the public can provide
additional ideas and sugges-
tions that may be advanta-
geous in some new hunting
and freshwater fishing regula-
tions.
Karen Parker, public infor-
mation coordinator for the
FWC's north central region,
said every two years the FWC
provides the public with the
;opportunity. to recommend
improvements or. publish' sug-
gestions for the changes to
hunting or freshwater fishing
regulations.
The public can submit regu-
lation-changing ideas by
returning FWC applications to
Roland Garcia, FWC Regional
Director, 3377 E. U.S. 90, Lake
City 32055. Applications are
available at the FWC office and
can be printed from the FWC
Web site,
myfwc. com/rulemaking/pip-

northcentral.pdf
"On each form, we're asking


folks to stay with just one idea,
but they can turn in as many
forms at they want," she said.
"We'll compile all the input and
see if the changes can be
made."
March 31 is the deadline for
returning the applications,
which will be reviewed by a
FWC North Central Florida
Regional Leadership team in
April.
John Ault, an FWC biologist,
said the process has been in
place for at least 20 years and
sited an instance last year
where hunting land was
changed from dog hunting to
still-hunts after public sugges-
tion.
"Anybody in the state can
get involved this way," he said.
"Some ideas we -think- are
appropriate management tech-
niques that both preserve the
resource and provide more
outdoor recreation. We'll then
research those ideas some
more and have another meet-
ing later on. Those are the
rules we like to pass good
management for the resource,
while providing opportunities
for the public."
Ault said some suggestions
get rejected because FWC offi-
cials believe the resource is
not ready for the suggested
change.

Fort White plans


spring yard sale


By ASHLEY CISNEROS
acisneros@lakecityreporter.com
FORT WHITE The
Fort White Area Chamber of
Commerce is looking for
new members and planning
its spring yard sale.
"We are always looking for
new members," said Gary
Wilbur, president of the Fort
White Area Chamber of
Commerce and owner of
Great Take Out. "Even indi-
viduals can join our group."
Individuals are charged
$15 to join, and businesses
are charged $25.
'The chamber is impor-
tant because it brings people
together in the community,"
he said.
Wilbur said joining the
chamber of commerce is
good for businesses because
a list of businesses in the
chamber is given to the
town.
If someone calls the Town
Hall looking for a business,
he or she receives the name
of a reputable business that
belongs to the chamber.
"If they are looking for a
bookkeeper, they can make
one phone call and get the
name of one," he said.
Currently the chamber
has about 24 members,
Wilbur said.
"About 10 or 12 come to
the meetings each month,"
he said.


Cl)





a)


The chamber is planning
its spring city-wide yard sale
for April 16.
The chamber does all the
advertising for the event,
and vendors come and sell
their items at the yard sale.
The chamber holds a yard
sale in the fall and one in the
spring.
At first, the yard sales
were held at the train sta-
tion, and now they are held
at the sports complex,
Wilbur said.
"I never thought it would
get as big as it has grown,"
he said.
"We get vendors from all
over the state."
Past items available at the
yard sale have included trac-
tors, antiques and toys,
Wilbur said.
The sale will be held from
8 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Vendors are to show up
beforehand and will be
asked to pay $10 to sell their
goods.
"Some vendors come well
before I get there, but they
don't need to show up before
7 a.m.," Wilbur said.
The Friends of the
Ichetucknee Springs State
Park, a citizens support
organization (CSO), pro-
vides items to the chamber
to sell in the yard sale.
All proceeds from their
donated items benefit the
park.

LAKE CITY REPORTER, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 2, 2005


SINKHOLE
Continued from page 1A
Emergency personnel
ordered a voluntary evacua-
tion for a mobile home park
next to the property, with the
Red Cross at the scene to
assist. Kay Lenard, emer-
gency services director for
the Red Cross, said eight fam-
ilies received assistance in
*finding temporary housing,
and more found a place to
stay with family or friends.
Sheriff Bill Gootee was en
route to a meeting in Sumter
County when he heard about
the sinkhole and turned back.
He said deputies would moni-
tor the sinkhole until the situ-
ation has calmed.
"My major concern is for
the safety of the residents,"
Gootee said.
Tests of the water around
the sinkhole are being con-
ducted, but no "boil-water"
notice has yet been issued,
said Mark Lander of the
Columbia County Health
Department. The department
is testing for total coliform
and e. coli.
Lander said if local resi-
dents notice any change in
their tap water, they should
contact the health depart-


ment at 758-1058. If local resi-
dents want to take precaution-
ary measures, Lander said
they can drink bottled water
or heat tap water for at least
one minute at a roiling boil
before consumption.
One of the bystanders who
came by to take a look at the
sinkhole said she was amazed
at the size.
Ronni Smith, who lives on
Dekle Road, described the
sounds from the sinkhole as
being like those of a large
waterfall.
"The water sounds like
Niagara Falls," Smith said.
Late in the day, as the hole
expanded, officials tried to
keep gawkers at a minimum.
Traffic was diverted at
Pinemount Road and Deputy
Jeff Davis Road, with only res-
idents of the area, emergency
personnel and members of
the press allowed to pass.
Officials say there is no
way to tell when the hole will
stop expanding. Campbell
said John Dorman, of Caltech
Testing, told him he esti-
mates the hole may grow for
four to six days.
"It's kind of amazing and
yet heart-wrenching,"
Campbell said.
'There's nothing man can
do at this point."


JUSTIN LANG/Lake City Reportel
The sinkhole off Pinemount Road floods with water from Pueschel's Pond. Residents living near the area where the sinkhole
occurred called 911 around 5 a.m. when they heard flowing water and what appeared to be a sinkhole forming.


LEFT: A smaller sinkhole formed near the area off Pinemount Road on Tuesday. CENTER: Officials estimated the size of the sinkhole to be about 200 feet by 75 feet. Also the sinkhole is
believed to hold about 120 million gallons of water. RIGHT: The water from Pueschel's Pond, along with the ground becoming increasingly weak, expanded the sinkhole around 9 a.m., col-
lapsing across a driveway and forming a second hole steps away from a house.

cially qualify by March 25-
would be put on the May 10
ballot.
If there are only two candi-
datesin the election, the one
with the majority of votes
wins. However, if there are
three or more candidates, to
win the mayor's seat, one of
them must receive at least 50
percent of the votes plus one
vote, otherwise there will be a
runoff on May 24.
As it was approved, the res-
olution will not provide for
early voting in the special
election.
According to the City
Clerk's office as of Tuesday,
only Lake City residents
Glenel Bowden and James
"Skipper" Hair II had filed a
"statement of candidate," offi-
cially announcing their intent
to run for a chance to serve
out the remainder of


Kirkland's term.
According to records,
Glenel Bowden filed his state-
ment on; Monday, while .Hair
filed, diso; Tuesday, afterthe,
meeting.

City Clerk Audrey Sikes'
said both have picked up elec-
tion packets with the petition
cards.
Hair,. a lifelong Lake City
resident and co-owner: of
Hair's Home and Auto, ran for
mayor last year, losing to
Kirkland in August's primary
election.
Bowden is a former City
Councilman, having served
from 1982-1998, and has
worked for 12 years as district
director for U.S.
Congresswoman Corrine
Brown (D-Jacksonville).
City charter requires that a
new mayor be elected
between 60-90 days from the
date the mayor officially
leaves office with more than
eight months left in the term.
Kirkland resigned Feb. 21


during his third term after
more than eight years in
office. His resignation was
acQcept4by council Jast week,
atits,Feb,, 3?,,meeting, ,
Kirkland, 75, cited health
concerns and wanting 'to
spend more time with his fam-
ily as reasons for resignation,
but he also acknowledged the
city's ongoing internal investi-
gation by Darby into allega-
tions against him.
Because the investigation is
still active, the city and Darby
have given few details other
than to say it will determine
whether any policy was violat-
ed by Kirkland with regards
to employment.
The investigation began
after a formal complaint was
submitted -to the City
Manager's office.
Darby has said he plans to
report to the council with
findings once he completes
the investigation, but has not
given an estimate when that
may be.

There is a dearth of officials
for high school sports .in the
state of. Florida, and the
effects are being felt in
Columbia County.
On Friday, the Fort White
High-Santa Fe High softball
game was canceled because
only one official was able to
work the game.
According to Suwannee
Officials Association Secre-
tary Heyward Christie, it's the
continuation of a downward
trend over the last five years.
"Schools in tle state of


Florida have grown by 50 per-
cent, officials have dropped
by 30 percent," Christie said.
Part of the problem is that
some of the games primari-
ly middle school games -
start at 4 p.m., and it is diffi-
cult for officials to take the
requisite time off from work
to travel to a game three or
four times a week.
According to Christie,
other problems include offi-
cials' salaries and organiza-
tions and schools not doing a
good job of recruiting.
The Suwannee Officials
Association struggled for
baseball and softball officials


after five officials were unable
to return this year because of
injuries.
The association did not get
word until the season was
about to start, which put it in a
difficult situation. Still, Chri-
stie said the officials have
been able to make it to all of
the games, and if not for the
last-minute drop-outs, "we
would not have a problem at
all," he said.
Indians Athletic Director
John Wilson said the official
shortage has been a hot topic

LCCC crushes Kellogg


By TIM KIRBY

The hitters fattened their
averages and coach Tom
Clark got to look at potential
pitchers, as Lake City Comm-
unity College beat a split
squad of Kellogg College
players 17-4 in Lake City on
Monday.
The Timberwolves host
Kellogg again on Thursday
(2:30 p.m.), but today's re-
scheduled game at North
Florida Community College
has been re-canceled becau-
se of lack of umpires.
Lake City (12-9) opens
Mid-Florida Conference play


at Santa Fe Community
College at 3 p.m. Friday and
hosts Daytona Beach Comm-
unity College at 1 p.m.
Saturday.
"The bell is about to ring,"
Clark said. "We wanted to get
our relievers some work
today, which we did, and we
did what we should do offen-
sively. (Mike) Ryan did OK
and it looks like we will leave
(Brian) Schlitter in the
bullpen for a while."
Clark said Duente Heath
and Stephen Barnes will
start the first two conference
games and Raleigh Evans

Tradition continues for CHS track


By TIM KIRBY

Columbia High's rich track
tradition has been turned over
to coaches Jason Slimp and
Brandon Beadles. Slimp is
coaching the boys, while
Beadles is coaching the girls.
Beadles is entering his 11th
season coaching track and
Slimp ran track in high school
in Birmingham.- Ala., and
helped out at Suwannee High
before coming to CHS.
Columbia opens its season
at The Bolles School at 1 p.m.
Friday.
"We are looking to find the
right combination to be suc-
cessful," Slimp said at practice
on Monday. "We want to have
a winning season and do well
in district. We have a couple of
guys that have a chance to
qualify for region and state."

Brooks is anchoring the

and running the 200.
"Our 4x100 teamnhas a real
shot at state," Brooks said. "I
know we can get to state and
hopefully we'll place. I want to
take that 200 to state, too, and
win it."
Brooks said a likely lineup
for the 4x100 includes Rod-
rick Betts, Dee llunga and
Albert Coker. 'It is up to the
last leg to get to the tape first,
something Brooks has no
doubt he can do.
"I am the fastest guy," he
said. "If they get me there, I'll

Columbia High track athletes warm up during practice on Monday.


Bohannon, who holds the
pole vault record at CHS,
missed state last year by one
attempt. He needs to add sev-
eral inches to his current
school record of 13 feet.
"I will go to state this year,
and I will place at state if I get
close to 14 feet," Bohannon
said. "It %%ill take hard work to
get there. I was second at dis-
trict last year."

Bohannon also runs the 110
and 300 hurdles to "try and
get the team extra points."
"We have. 20 girls out, and
we will have an idea when we
go to Bolles," Beadles said.
"We will build around the
4x400 and 4x100 relays. Most
of our strength is in our
upperclassmen, but we have
more underclassmen and that

upcoming years.".
Tiffany Gallimore will run
in both relays and she is look-
ing for big things in her senior
year.
"This is our time to shine
this season," Gallimore said.
"I am going to concentrate on
the 100. and both relays and
try to take both to state. We
have got a good shot."
Freshman Tiffany Paris is


on both relays, while sopho-
mores Tanna Hicks and
Jessica Davis will run on the
4x400 and senior Donitra
Gibson afid freshman
Shannon Cheers will run on
the 4x100.
Hicks also will compete in
the high jump, mile and 300
hurdles.,
'The most difficult thing on
the hurdles is getting the
form," Hicks said. "I am get-
ting the technique down bet-
ter this year. I am an alternate
on the 4x100 and, if I get on it,
I promise I will try my best to
shine."
Gallimore made region as a
sophomore in the 4x100 and
that is her ticket to state.
"If I had to choose one, it
would be the 4x100, that's the
one to take me to state,"
Gallimore said.
"I try to motivate my team-
mates and we encourage each
other. I try to show by exai-
_pPe arnd ,I expect. pthrs,;to
work hard."
Dusty Smith, a member of
Columbia's state champi-
onship team in 2002, is help-
ing with the distance runners.
"We have Leslie Cappelli,
who runs the two mile, but as
a senior she wants to try the
400 and 800, so we will throw
her in those events and see
how she does. J.J. (Jessica)
Davis is our best miler. Ben
Rigdon will run the 800 and
mile and, for the season, I
think he will be in the 4s. Brad
Rigdon also runs distance for
us.
"We have a lot of freshman,
and we are excited about that.
There is a lot of potential."


Indians junior varsity

gets off to fast start


By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter.com

The Fort White High jun-
ior varsity baseball team has
been a juggernaut so far this
season, outscoring its three
opponents by a combined 33-
15 in going 3-0. ,
The first win was the
toughest, as the Indians
trailed Newberry High 8-0
after the first inning in the
season opener.
"I told them, 'Should I just
:warm up the bus?' Indians
coach John Reis said. "And
they said, 'No, we'll play this
one out.'"
It was a wise decision.,
Austin Lawrence entered in
the third inning and stopped
the bleeding after Fort White
was down 12-6. Then, the
Indians' bats caught fire and
Fort White scored 9 of the
last 10 runs for a thrilling 15-
13 win.
"We kept battling, we took
it there at the end," Reis said.
The second game saw Fort
White.rout Trenton High 11-1.
Leading hitter Matt Hatcher
hit a three-run home run that
went past the bus on the other
side of the outfield fence.
"He's been the best hitter
on the team," Reis said.
Hatcher is batting .455 (5-11)


with seven RBIs on the
season.
In the third game, Hatcher
drove in four more runners
in an 8-1 win over Bradford
High on Saturday. He's also
relieved twice.
Lawrence has been the
Indians' top pitcher, with a 1-0
record and 12 strikeouts in 6%
innings. He's allowed just
three hits
and two
runs -
one ear-
Sned--and
walked
S,-- one. Lawr-
ence is
also hit-
ting .300 with six steals in six
attempts.
Matt Milatz got the win
against Bradford, pitching
four innings and allowing,
one earned run on three hits.
Milatz struck out five "in
big spots," Reis said and
walked two.
Hayden Espenship has
wreaked havoc from his lead-
off spot, going 4-9 (.444) with
seven runs scored and six
stolen bases in six attempts.
As a team, Fort White has
27 stolen bases in 28 tries

"In the past they've left it up
to the organizations, bUitnow
they want the schools to han-
dle it," Wilson said.
Wilson plans to do his part
by talking to players that have
either played or graduated to
try and recruit them to offici-
ate games.
Columbia High has not
experienced any of those
problems thanks to the Colu-
mbia Officials Association.,:
Tigers baseball coach Andy
Bennett and Lady 'Tigers
coach Mary Hale have both
been pleased with the
association.
"We're fortunate enough
that we get the top officials,"
Bennett said. -
Hale added, "We've never
had a problem. We have a
great organization. -Mark
Anderson and Mike
Paphides, they're the ones in
charge."
Hale said that while she
hears "every year" that there
is an official shortage, never
have the Tigers or Lady
Tigers had to miss a game
due to not having enough offi-
cials on the field.
Nor have Hale or Bennett


* been contacted to try and,
recruit officials, as Wilson has
been.
Hale said the shortage of
officials is cyclical.
"WIfs just a down period now,
.a valley," she said.
There is a need for younger
officials. though, since Christie
estimated the average age is
"about 52 years old." Christie.
who is 51, added, "I don't see
myself doing this when I'm 62."
That's because of the men-


tal wear and tear of officiating,
and because of the physicality
of being.in that position.,
Officials must often times
keep up with athletes 20-30
years younger than them on
the field of play.
For those who are interest-
ed in taking on the challenge
of being an official, they can
log on to assignbyweb.com and
fill out the information and wait
to be contacted, or they can

'Canes edge

Marlins

By STEVEN WINE
Associated Press

JUPITER-The ping of the
bat startled Dontrelle Willis at
least once. Then he became
accustomed to the -sound,
which he heard a lot Tuesday
against the Miami Hurricanes.
Swinging aluminum, the
Hurricanes routed Willis for
six runs in 2' innings and
beat the Florida Marlins 9-7.
"Lwas throwing right where
I wan ted to," Willis said. '"They
were just turning everything
around.... This is no junior col-
lege. This is the notorious
University of Miami. I'm not
surprised at all."
Traditional power Miami is
10-3 this season against colle-
giate competition and ranked
11th. But the victory was the
Hurricanes' first against a
major-league team since
March 10, 1982, when they
beat Baltimore 7-6.
Willis gave up an inside-
the-park homer to Brendan
Katin.
