Around 10 a.m. Wednesday, the sinkhole in western Columbia County slowly moves closer to a home on Pinemount
Road. The hole, which began to crumble Tuesday morning, is being fed by Pueschel's Pond, a 200-acre body of water
that continues to dump into the crater.

CHS senior joins


U.S. Army Band


John Tebmple began
playing the euphonium
in sixth grade.

Playing his instrument 14
hours a week paid off for a
local high school senior.
Columbia High School sen-
ior John Temple will play his
euphonium as part of the
United States Army Band
after his graduation in May.
He has been playing the
instrument for six years and
likens it to a baritone.
Temple, who served as
drum major for CHS for two
years, auditioned for an Army
Band expert from Atlanta.
Temple went to the audition
with a prepared piece, which
he performed along with 12
scales for the representative.
Then he was given several
pieces of music he had never
seen before, and had to sight
read them as well.
"When I was in sixth grade,
I tried all the other instru-
ments and really didn't like
them," he said. "When a
friend handed me a euphoni-
um, I sounded good and loved
it."
Temple says he was attract-
ed to the idea of joining the
Army band because of the
benefits and money.
"I see it as a good job where
I can do something I really
enjoy," he said.
Temple is scheduled to
leave for boot camp in South
Carolina on July 30.
Afterward, he will receive
six months of music training
in Virginia.
Eventually he would like to
teach music at the collegiate
level*after an extended period
of performance.

has conducted in front of
thousands at the Cotton Bowl
and the Peach Bowl.
He said that although the
idea of being sent overseas
amid the conflict in the
Middle East scares him a lit-
tle, he is still sure of his deci-
sion.
"I feel that the advantages
of joining the Army far out-
weigh the disadvantages," he
said. "I feel very privileged to
be accepted."
Temple credits his success
to the discipline it takes to put
in hours of practice.
He describes music as "his
whole life" and enjoys listen-
ing to Jimi Hendrix and Pink
Floyd.
His father agrees.
"He plays music in the
morning, day and night, "
Andy Temple said. "But the

He said he thinks the move
is a good career for his son.

State purchases development


rights in Pinhook Swamp area


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
State officials have pur-
chased close to 10,000 acres
in the Pinhook Swamp area of
the Osceola National Forest
to protect the area from
development.
Tuesday, Gov. Jeb Bush
and the Florida Cabinet voted
in favor of purchasing six
parcels of property, totaling
9,400 acres and ranging in
size from 1,000 2,300 acres,
for $1.9 million.
The $1.9 million purchase
is the result of six land own-
ers selling the development
rights on the property for the
Pinhook Swamp, located in
Columbia County as part of
the Osceola National Forest.


Karen Parker, public infor-
mation coordinator for the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's
north central region, said the
Pinhook Swamp region is a
natural habitat for many fed-
erally endangered species
and species of special con-
cern. She said animals inhab-
iting the swap include the
gray bat, the red-cockaded
wooded, the Bald Eagle,
Florida Black Bear, Florida
Sandhill Crane, wood storks,
otters, mink, alligators,
weasels, wild turkeys, and the
Eastern Indigo snake.
"The area also supports
populations of many species
that occur only in North
Florida," she said, noting
species such as the black-


banded sunfish, the mud sun-
fish, the eastern mudminnow,
the carpenter frog, the many-
lined salamander, the striped
newt, and the canebrake rat-
tle snake.
Parker said she didn't
expect the duties of FWC per-
sonnel to change with the
land purchase.
'"They've bought the devel-
opment rights so it won't be
developed, from what I under-
stand," she said.
"I think the goal all along
for the agency is to protect
the natural resources
because there will be no
developing in this area and it
will preserve a natural habi-
tat."
According to reports from
the Florida Department of


Environmental Protection,
the 216-acre Pinhook Swamp
Florida Forever project pre-
serves critical habitat for
threatened wildlife.
The Pinhook Swamp also
provides drinking water for
northeast Florida and is con-
nected to the Suwannee
River, St. Mary's River and
the Okeefeenokee Swamp.
Linking Osceola National
Forest to the Okeefeenokee
National Wildlife Refuge in
Georgia, Pinhook Swamp cre-
ates the largest wildlife corri-
dor east of the Mississippi
River. Fifty-nine percent of
the Pinhook Swamp Florida
Forever project is now pro-
tected through public owner-
ship or conservation ease-
ments.

By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
The Columbia County
Board of Commissioners is
set to sign a resolution that
is aimed at bringing more
economic benefits to the


area during its regularly
scheduled meeting tonight.
County commissioners are
scheduled to sign the resolu-
tion at their 7 p.m. commis-
sion meeting at the
Columbia County School
Board Administrative


Complex auditorium.
The document roughly
states county officials have
determined it is in the best
,interest of the county to sup-
port the concept of a region-
al economic development
organization comprised of all


14 counties of the North
Central Florida Rural Area of
Critical Economic Concern.
The group will support
and facilitate the positive
economic development and
growth of the designated
North Central Florida


region.
By signing the resolution,
the county also agrees to
work toward its economic
development goals in har-
mony and partnership with
the other members of the
North Central Florida Rural


Area of Critical Economic
Concern.
The board also is set to
discuss a charter review
commission, the closing of
Tiger Drain Road and the
partial closing of S.W.
Jordan Street.

Watching


nature take


its course
W hen Mother Nature
' decides it is time for a
sinkhole to open, all we
can do is stand nearby and
watch. Depending on the
vantage point and the proximity to proper-
ty, possessions and loved ones, the reac-
tion of those watching changes dramatical-
ly.
Some are awed.
Some are horrified.
Most everyone wonders what will hap-
pen next.
Helpless to do anything else, everyone
is at the mercy of the earth in this situa-
tion.
Alforming sinkhole has a mind of its
own. This type of disaster is similar to the
eruption .of a volcano and.the reaction is ...
similar: Stand out of the way and enjoy the
show.
Tuesday's sinkhole opening made head-
lines and soundbites across Florida and
around the country as far away as a con-
firmed published report in Sacramento,
Calif.
This week's newest sinkhole is one of
many that have opened in Columbia
County in recent history. Unfortunately, it
won't be our last.
As we print this issue of the newspaper,
the sinkhole continues to grow. It's unclear
how big it will get and how much property
it will engulf.
We hope it stops soon and doesn't dam-
age any structures or roadways. But if it
does, all we can do is prepare for the
cleanup.

Being aware of disability needs


Let me preface this column by saying I
hope nobody is offended by it. My
intent is not to offend, but to inform
and help sensitize people concerning
the needs of the disabled.
Before marrying my husband in 2001, I was
somewhat aware of problems facing disabled
individuals. Although not a member of the
medical profession, part of my job working for
the City of Jacksonville had been to manage
Duval County's program for registering
Persons with Special Needs (PSN) for emer-
gency sheltering. Health-care officials there,
especially Patricia Frank of the Duval County
Health Department, were wonderful about
educating me concerning health and disability
..problems -that .require:, emergency medical
assistance in a disaster. I'm still far from being
-an expert, buti do feelthat-almost fur years of
marriage to a man who is 95 percent paraplegic
and wheelchair-bound has made me better
qualified to speak up on behalf of people who
have similar disabilities.
In general, the public is becoming more.
aware of the needs of the disabled. The
Americans with Disabilities Act (1990) has
mandated provisions such as grab bars and ele-
vated commodes in public restrooms, as well.
as ramps and designated parking at public
buildings for people with a verified disability
status. This law has opened new vistas for the
disabled, who, prior to its passage, were much
more limited in their access to stores, restau-
rants, and government buildings.
.Although most of the doorways to public
buildings meet the ADA code of a 32-inch
clearance, this simply isn't enough space for a
person in a manual wheelchair, who has to use
his arms to work the wheels. I'd love to see this
Slaw changed to 36 inches. We so greatly appre-
ciate places such as Southern Mediplex herein
Lake City, where' pushing a button opens both
doors automatically, giving plenty of room.to
pass through without struggling with a manual
door. Grocery stores are also a pleasure, with
their automatic doors. Some restaurants, such
as Applebee's, place. their handicap parking
spaces close to the door so that host staff can
spot wheelchair patrons and others needing
help. and provide assistance with their entry.
Another problem is public restrooms. Very
'few are ideally equipped for the disabled. Again,
Southern Mediplex has the best we've seen in
Lake City. Some restaurants, however, fail to
meet minimum requirements. One restaurant
owner told us that the very narrow doors to her
facilities had !'grandfather" status under ADA,
and she didn't see the need to change them. We
commend Jack Davis, the very gracious manag-


CAROLYN
OLDER


er of Cracker Barrel. He did everything in his
power to persuade his corporation to modify the
men's restroom for wheelchair patrons.
Parking places are another problem
Although businesses usually have the minimunr
required by ADA, we commend those who have
additional spaces, sincethe minimum isiseldorr
enough, especially at popular restaurants. Here
I would like-to make-a plea to people who have
disabled placards, but are perhaps less handi
capped than others. If you don't need that side
loading space, please leave it for someone whc
does. I can't tell you how many times we've hac
to either forget about eating where we intended
and go somewhere else, or have had to load anc
unload while blocking traffic, so that I can other
park the car in a regular, parking space whicl.
isn't wide enough to place a wheelchair between
us and the car beside us.
A related issue is handicap ramps at curbs. Sc
often we've found someone's vehicle parked
blocking the ramp, which makes it impossible
for us to get up onto the curb. At times, we've
had to go inside a restaurant and have the man
ager find an owner so that lie can move a vehicle
out of the way. In general, people don't mean tc
be insensitive to the disabled; they just don'i
really think about what they are doing. We com
mend the manager of Cedar River Seafood foi
promptly installing concrete parking blocks a
our suggestion, to prevent drivers from parking
so close to the sidewalk curb, that their caj
hoods protruded and blocked access for wheel
chair patrons. Generally, people in Lake City are
friendly and caring, which makes this a wonder
ful place to live. To the many who have taken the
* time to hold doors open, and have even gotter
out of their vehicles to rush over and offer assis
tance to us and other disabled, we give a humbkl
thank you.
Let's hope that all of us will pay a little more
attention to provisions for those with less mobil
ity.

BAND
Continued from page 1A
Andy Temple plays the gui-
tar, banjo, piano and drums
when he is not working as
manager at First Street
Music.
He said he spoke to his son
for several months about his
concerns with him joining the
Army.
"One day,- he came home
and said this was something
he wanted 'to do," Andy
Temple said.
He is proud of his son and
said that the many meetings,
concerts, fund-raisers and
functions paid off.
Staff Sgt. Jean Thimothe
met Temple last year and
remembered that he was
graduating this year.
"John is very talented and


we are happy to have him join
the Army," he said. "It is rare
to have a high school gradu-
ate make the band, as most of
those accepted are college
graduates."
Joe Adkins, band director
at CHS calls Temple "a
sponge."
"He usually masters things
I teach him in 24 hours," he
said. "He is one of a kind."

155 NW Enterprise Way Suite A, Lake City


By TODD WILSON
twilson@lakecityreporter. corn
The volunteer fire depart-
ments in Columbia County
earned the 2005 Acts of
Caring Award on Wednesday.
The honor was announced
by the National Association
of Counties in a news release
Wednesday morning.
The award is given to rec-
ognize the top county volun-
teer firefighter programs in
the country, according to
NACO. Columbia County vol-
unteer fire departments com-
peted in the Criminal Justice
and Emergency


During the trip, Flinn said
through her NACO contacts,
she had arranged for a private
tour of the U.S. Capitol that
will be given by Speaker of the
House Dennis Hastert, an
Illinois Republican.
Skinner said it was his con-
tacts through a mutual
acquaintance that allowed the
personal meeting with Hastert,
but agreed the time spent with
the Speaker of the House
would be beneficial.
,"Just Commissioner Skinner


Management Category,
Population 3 for small coun-
ties.
Columbia County
Commission Chairwoman
Jennifer Flinn nominated the
county volunteer units dur-
ing a NACO meeting last
year in Las Vegas.
"When I was in Las Vegas,
on the trip that received so
much attention in the news-
paper, I made these contacts
and got the application for
this award," Flinn said.
"Harvey Campbell
[Columbia County Tourism
director] wrote up the infor-
mation about our volunteer


county because "it was voted
on in an open meeting. All the
commissioners were invited to
attend, but no one else wanted
to go." A final cost of the trip
cannot be calculated until the
two return next week.
Skinner said he planned to
attend as many seminars as
possible and become more
involved with the NACO
organization.
"I plan to participate in the
classes," Skinner said. "I feel
it's my obligation to reach out
and participate. I want to look
into public safety stuff law
enforcement, EMS."
He said the need for an
ambulance station in Fort
White and the increasing
need for a stronger salary
structure for paramedics were
two high priorities for which
he searched for solutions.
"Hopefully, we'll make
some contacts and bring back
some grant money," Skinner
said.

departments."
Flinn said winning the
award garnered an invitation
for her and two representa-
tives of the volunteer fire
departments to travel to
Washington on April 13 to
accept the award during a
luncheon on Capitol Hill.
"I will be going, and we
will allow the volunteer fire
chiefs to select two others to
attend," Flinn said.
"Only three are allowed to
attend."
According to NACO,
Florida's U.S. Senators and
local U.S. Representatives
also will attend the awards


and myself will be touring the
Capitol with Speaker Hastert,"
Flinn said. "We have an
appointment."
Flinn said the private tour of
the Capitol with Hastert will
lay the groundwork for future
assistance for Columbia
County.
'This is a very important
meeting," Flinn said. "When
you ask for grants, they can
put a face with the person.
That's the benefit of going to
Washington."

LAKE CITY REPORTER, THURSDAY, MARCH 3, 2005


SINKHOLE
Continued from page 1A


nearby 200-acre Pueschel's
Pond poured into the hole
and possibly traveled under-
ground south and southwest,
said Mark Lander, director of
the health department.
A second sinkhole opened
less than a mile southwest
from the first hole Tuesday
and grew in size Wednesday.
The second hole, estimated
to be about 15 feet across and
containing water, is closer to
the road than the first open-
ing, but is not currently
threatening any homes.
The larger sinkhole contin-
ued to grow slowly, as it crept
just steps from the home of
Red and Susie Roberts.
A cookhouse on the prop-
erty now sits on the sink-
hole's edge with pieces of its
concrete walkway lost to the
hole.
A tree close to the home
sat over the edge of the hole.
Chunks of rocks and sand
dropped from under the tree,
its roots exposed.
Three trees, including a
large Magnolia, already fell
in.
To try and curb the water
flowing into the sinkhole,
members of the Lake City
Fire Department and 18
supervised inmates from
Columbia Correctional
Institute filled sandbags for
most of the afternoon at
Pueschel's Pond.
By 5:30 p.m., sandbagging
moved slowly because of
deep mud.


Pinemount Road continues
to be blocked, with only area
residents, emergency person-
nel and members of the press
allowed near the sinkhole.
The Columbia County
Sheriff's Office, which is the
agency that decides when the
road will reopen, is not yet
sure when Pinemount Road
will see normal traffic.
Harvey Campbell,
spokesman for Columbia
County Emergency
Management, said his major
concern today is the weather
forecast.
According to the National
Weather Service Web site,
Columbia County has a 40
percent chance of rain today.
Two field researchers from
Florida Geological Survey
visited the sinkhole.
Edward Chelette, one of
the researchers, told TV
crews that he was amazed.
"This one is quite dramatic
from a geological stand-
point," he said, "but not so
great for the homeowners."
The Roberts spent
Wednesday next to a fire out-
side their home, on the safe
side of yellow police tape,
away from the sinkhole swal-
lowing their property.
Around noon, Susie
Roberts erected a sign in
what was left of her front
yard: "For Sale By Owner."
Any residents near the
sinkhole should heat water at
a rolling boil for at least one
minute to be safe, health offi-
cials said.
To report any unusual
changes in the area, con-
cerned residents can call the
Columbia County Health
Department at 758-1058.


ASSOCIATED PRESS

age. A large sinkhole opened, sending a torrent of water into the crater and forcing the evacuation of 11 mobile homes, offi-
cials said. BELOW LEFT: A supervised crew of Columbia Correctional Institute inmates work to sandbag the source of the
water flooding into the sinkhole. BELOW RIGHT: Susie Roberts, the homeowner, erected a sign in what was left of her front

Season

winds down

Another school
year is winding
down, and the
last of the
spring sports
finally got under way
Wednesday with the Fort
White High weightlifting
team opening its season in
a meet against Taylor
County High and Hamilton
County High.
The Indians won by the
narrowest of margins a
single point and had six
first-place finishes, further
contributing to Coach Mike
Hunter's belief that this was
the strongest weightlifting
team he has had.
"We have people in all of
our weight classes, and we
really don't just give away
points by not having any-.,
body," Hunter said. "And
that was the difference
between winning and com-
ing in second (against
Taylor County)."
Hunter emphasized that
it was only the first meet of
the season, and there was
still a long way to go, but he
said, "I'm optimistic."'
The Fort White junior var-
sity and middle school base-
ball teams are a combined 5-
0, and the varsity team is a
respectable 1-2 so far.
The softball team has
only two seniors and is in a
\ rebuilding year after losing"
eight players to graduation.
Although the team is cur-
rently 1-4, two of those loss-
es have come by a com-
bined four runs.
The boys and girls track
teams have performed well
in the first home meets in
school history.
The Indians blew away
Hamilton County in their first
meet, then followed that with
a narrow loss to Santa Fe
High and Taylor County in
which several Lady Indians
had great performances.
The Lady Indians dis-
tance and middle distance
runners stole the show with
a series of first place
finishes.
The relay teams also
excelled, with the boys
4x400-meter team capturing
first place for the second
straight meet.
And while high school
seasons are finishing up,
youth league seasons are
just starting.
Next Saturday the Lake
City/Columbia County
Babe Ruth League will start
its season with a Jamboree
in which all teams will get
an opportunity to play.
At the same time, the Fort
White Youth Baseball
League will get its start in
Branford. On March 19, Fort
White will host its own open-
ing ceremonies at the South
Columbia Sports Park.
The Girls Softball
Association of Columbia
County kicks off its season
the same day at the
Southside Sports Complex.
And high school athletes
will continue to hone their
skills in summer camps and
clinics conducted by their
respective schools.
Yes, sports has become a
year-round enterprise in
Columbia County.
And there should be
enough events going on
during the summer to keep
sports enthusiasts busy
until football season starts
again in August.
And that's only five
months away.

Hodges out as Lady



Timberwolves coach


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
When Lake City Commun-
ity College softball coach B.J.
Hodges was called on
Wednesday to preview the
Lady Timberwolves' Mid-
Florida Conference opener,
she said she had been asked
to clean out her desk by the
end of the day.
Hodges had no comment
on the development other
than to say that she was doing
just that.
"I would rather not make
any comment, period," she
said.
Athletic Director Tom
Clark referred all inquiries to


the school's Public Infor-
mation Office for comment.
Clark did say assistant coach
James Smith would take over
the team on an interim basis.
"Lake City Community
College felt some changes'
were needed, and we took the
appropriate action," ICCC
President Dr. Chuck Hall said.
Lake City was 2-12 this sea-
son, but facing a new slate
with the beginning of confer-
ence play. Seminole Commun-
ity College is visiting Lake
City today for a 1:30 p.m.
doubleheader.
'This is a great group of
kids, who are going to bust
their tails this year," Hodges
said.


Hodges was hired by Lake
City on July 2, 2002, after
spending one season as head
coach at Central Florida
Community College and
coaching at Wolfson High
from 1998-2002.
In Hodges' first year at
LCCC, the Lady 'Wolves were
42-9 and won the Mid-Florida
championship for the 25th
time. Lake City was 2-2 in the
state tournament.
In 2004, Lake City was
30-18 and made the state field
as a wild card entry, but was
eliminated in two games.
Hodges was one of the
great players for Lake City,

Tigers' weightlifting

season begins Friday

By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia High's 2005 weightlifting
team is top-heavy in more ways than
one.
-Led by returning state qualifier
Jeremiah Fulton, the Tigers will have
four or five lifters who can power clean
more than 300 pounds. Fulton was
third at state in the 238-pouid weight
class last year with a 385 bench press
and 285 clean and jerk for a 670 total.
'"We have always been strong in the
bench, but we have.been behind other
teams in the clean and jerk, and we are
putting an emphasis on that," coach
Dennis Dotson said.
Dotson is head coach for CHS
weightlifting, and Billy Young is the
assistant coach.
Columbia's first competition is at
Buchholz High on Friday. The meet
begins at 4 p.m.
"Buchholz always has strong kids
and should be a good opening test for
us," Dotson said.
Sitting atop the lifting chain are
heavyweights Rene Perry and
Sampson Genus, both sophomores.
Junior Michael Boyer is also lifting in
heavyweight.
Garrethon Carter is lifting at 219
and "has an outside chance to make it
to state and qualify," said Dotson.
Chauncey Mays is currently lifting at
238, but trying.to get on to 219, where
"he has a chance to throw up some
good totals."
When you get to the divisions under
200 pounds, Josh Morris is one of the
top Tigers.
"Josh did not play football to focus
more on weightlifting," Dotson said.
"He was, on a powerlifting team at
Future Fitness. He has a chance to be
a state qualifier at 169 pounds."
Albert Coker and Ian Smith are lift-
ing at 183.
'"They will be solid performers for


Jeremiah Fulton, a weightlifting state qualifier in 2004, works on his technique
Tuesday.


us in dual meets," Dotson said. "That
weight class throws up some pretty
high totals for state. If, by his senior
year, a lifter knows he is not a state
qualifier, he usually doesn't come out.
These guys are focusing on getting in
shape and preparing for a future."
Wesley Williams and Logan
Douglas are lifting at 199, while Caleb
Carmichael "the best of the lighter
weights" and James Allbritton are
at 154.
John Gillespie, Alex Carswell and
Adam Crumitie will miss the first meet
to run track.
Mike Jolly is also lifting. John
Jenkins and Robbie Rassel are in the


119-pound class.
"Our numbers' are lower and that
may be not having someone here as
head football coach," Dotson said.
"That's how we have pushed it in the
past. If you play football, then you lift
weights, run track, play baseball do
something."
There are gaps on the low end,
which is not normally associated with
football players. Columbia has no lifter
in the 129-pound class and only one at
139.
"It has always been a strength of
ours to fill out every weight class,"
Dotson said. "Other schools are not
able to do that and we picked up easy

points. It really hurts us points-wise
that we have no dominant lifter in the
lower classes."
Columbia will lift in two sectionals
- March 23 at Gainesville High and
April 6 at Leon High in Tallahassee.
The Tigers compete in the 14-team
Section 2, from which only the top two
.lifters in each weight class will
advance to state.
Tony Fulton was a state champion
for CHS last year and the Tigers
would like to send another strong con-
tingent.
'The guys we've got are as good
quality as we've had since I've been
here," Dotson said.


Indians win opening meet


By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter.com
Fort White High swept the
lower weight classes and that
led the way to a 44-43-22 win
over Taylor County High and
Hamilton County High at the
opening meet of the season on
Wednesday.
'To come away with a victo-
ry over them even though
it's a slim victory was real
good," Fort White High coach
Mike Hunter said.
"It's a credit to our lighter
lifters."
Six Indians took first place
in their respective weight
classes. George Griffith won
the 119-pound class with a
total of 360 points, even
though he was disappointed
with his clean-and-jerk.


"Lucky," he said of his per-
formance.
Younger brother Chris, on
the other hand, was pleased
with his first-place finish in
the 129s. Griffith won with a
total of 390 points.
"I think I did pretty good,"
he said.
"I didn't think I'd get a 205
like that on my bench."
Steven Griffith placed
fourth in the 119s with a total
of 220.
Brian Coker tied for first in
the 139s with James Pope
with a total of 405 points, but
Coker ended up with the vic-
tory because he weighed one
pound less than Pope did.
"I got over on him this time,
but you never know what will
happen next time," Coker
said.


Donald Lewis said he was
"overwhelmed" with his first-
place finish in the 169-pound
division.
Lewis rang up a total of 445
points.
"Pretty good," he said. "A
lot better than I did in the first
meet last year."
Mike Williams placed third
with 390 points.
Jonathan James was first in
the 183s with a total of 520
points.
Cody Croft also won first
place in the 199s with 505
points in his first meet as an
Indian.
Trevares Holden finished
second in the 219s with a total
of 530 points.
Fort White (1-0) hosts
Keystone Heights High next
Wednesday at 4 p.m.

Practice paddling safety


By ASHLEY CISNEROS
acisneros@lakecityreporter.com
The pristine waters of
Florida's emerald beaches
and clear rivers, lakes and
ponds make it a; a great place
for canoeing and kayaking.
However with the tragic
deaths of two 14-year-old
Georgia boys due to a canoe-
ing accident, it is important
that people educate them-
selves about canoeing and
kayaking safety.
"The biggest problems
many, beginners make is
thinking they are experi-
enced," said John Vassar, a
certified canoeing and kayak-
ing instructor. "People need
to be honest with themselves
about their skill level."
He offers classes by
appointment for $75 a person.
While the American Canoe
Association classes are nor-
mally four hours long, Vassar's
classes are an all-day affair.
"We like to do day trips that
consist of four hours'of teach-
ing and four hours of tracking
where we take students out to
the water and into reality," he
S said.
Students benefit by getting
comfortable in the water
while still having their
instructor present.
"The class is more than 'Let
me show you how to paddle,'
it is about safety," Vassar said.
"You can learn how to paddle
in about 20 minutes, but safe-
ty will save your life.'"
Vassar said that peer pres-
sure can cause people to go
into the water even though
their instinct tells them some-
-thing differently.
"Even if you' have driven
250 ilile 'to go to a caribeif'g'
or kayaking trip, if the water
looks bad. you need to get
back in the car," he said.
"Don't go in the water; it is
that simple."
Vassar recommends always
checking the weather fore-
cast, water temperatures and
levels.


ASHLEY CISNEROS/Lake City Reporter
Alligator Lake Recreation Area is just one of the many places where visitors can go canoeing or kayaking in the county.
However, it is important to be educated on paddling safety.


Any person who takes a trip
out to. paddle should have a
weather radio because the
weather can change unex-
pectedly, he explained.
"Be smart, you just don't
take an open canoe into the
sea with 11 to 17 mile per
hour winds,". Vassar said,
quoting the wind speeds that
reportedly contributed to the
deaths of the two teens.
He emphasized the impor-
tance of heeding warnings
such as small craft advisory
warnings.
. "When they have those,
they are talking about small
boats that have motors. not lit-
tIe canoes and kayaks,"
Vassar said. "If it is unsafe for
Sboats, canoes and 1kayaks"def-
initely shouldn't be out there."
Even an open boat in five
mile an hour winds can cause
problems, he said.
Other tips Vassar offers is
always having the weakest
paddler in the front, so that
everyone else keeps up with
him or her.


He teaches his students
about hypothermia, citing the.
fact that Florida has the most
cases of illness and death from
hypothermia in the nation.
"We beat out northern
states because people don't
prepare for hypothermia
here," Vassar said.
If the air temperature and
the water temperature add up
to less than 110, a threat for
hypothermia is present, he
said. "If you get wet, the wind
takes heat from you 25 times
faster," Vassar said.
In addition, he advises pad-'
dlers to take materials to cre-
ate a fire with in case of an
emergency.
He recommends that pad-
dles' never venture but alone,
as there is strength in numbers.
"If I teach a class of more
than six people I have an aide
to serve as an extra pair of
eyes for me," he said.
Another hint is to never
reach out to anything outside
the canoe and to avoid sudden
movements, because it can


cause the boat to tip over.
He recommends staying low
in the canoe to regain balance.
"Boats want to float, it is the
people who make them tip
over many times," Vassar said.
Another must is wearing a
personal flotation device, also
known as a life jacket.
Although adults are not
mandated to wear them,
Vassar said not wearing them
is asking for trouble.
, "You can drown in your
bathtub at home. so a river is
no match for you," he said.
The United States Canoe
Association offers numerous
tips for safe paddling.
...Evn. ti;an,sporting. the
canoe or kayak to the water
can be dangerous if not done
properly. A solid, roof rack is
needed, and using ropes is
much better than stretch ties,
according to the association.
The association also recom-
mends wearing a whistle to
help signal for help should it
be needed.
Helmets are not just for bik-


ing anymore, as the associa-
tion, recommends wearing a
helmet while kayaking.
Knowing what type of boat
to use in a river, lake or ocean
is also imperative for safety.
Two types of canoes
include the K-boat or kayak,
which is a closed decked boat
designed for one occupant
propelled by one paddle with
a blade on both sides.
The second type is the C-
boat, or Canadian boat. These
are 17 feet long and are meant
for two people. Each person
has a paddle with one blade.
In addition there are differ-
ent types of kayaks.
For example, the ocean
kayak is a kayak designed for
sea water as it handles waves
well.
It is a sit-on kayak where
the person is actually sitting
on the kayak, rather than in it.
Another example is the
whitewater kayak, a small
kayak that is designed to accel-
erate through whitewater.
The river kayak is the easiest


to handle and is designed for
use on rivers, ponds and lakes.
"Probably the biggest thing
a person can do, whether they
are experienced or inexperi-
enced, is to file a float plan by
letting someone know where
you are going and when you
plan to be back," said Karen
Parker, public information
coordinator for the North
Central .Region Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Co-
mmission. "That way if you
are not back at the time you
said, someone can know to
send help."
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Comm-
ission has a free boater's safe-
ty course that can taken in
person or online.
In addition, the commission.
provides literature to paddlers
in preparation for their trip.
Recommended gear and
safety 'equipment include
extra batteries, a spray skirt,
deck bags, first aid kit., flares
and sunscreen.
John Lohde, park services
specialist at Manatee Springs
State Park teaches paddling
classes.
"Probably the biggest mis-
take beginners make is mis-
judging distance in the water,"
he said.
He advises always taking a
radio or cell phone to commu-
nicate with on the trip.
He also recommends tak-
ing an extra paddle and extra
'clothes, snacks and water.
"Sometimes you set out for
a just a two-hour trip and find
yourself there longer," he
said. "As it gets cooler you
may wish you would have
brought along a jacket to keep'
you warm."
Lohde said the park will be
offering a new class in April
specifically designed for pad-
dlers with little or no
experience.
For more information on
Vassar's class, call 884-9911.

Manatee Springs State Park,

Fishing line: The critical connection


Speckled trout season returns in March


By TONY BRITT
tbr n@lakecir reporrer.com

Most anglers know the
weakest link between them-
selves and the fish is their
fishing line.
Quality fishing line provides
a critical link between anglers
and the fish and reduces the
chances of losing that once-in-
a-life-time catch. It allows the
angler to feel the fish take the
bait; sometimes it floats for
topwater lures and at times, it
can even seem invisible.
Over the last few years fish-
ing lines have come full-circle.
Years ago, when our grand-
fathers fished, braided line was
more commonly used than
monofilament. However, that
is the rarely the case today -
but things are changing. Lots
of anglers are switching to
braided fishing lines because
they offer more strength with-
out the thick diameter associ-
ated with monofilament.
Braided line offers anglers lit-
tle memory, it's abrasion resist-
ant, it offers little or no stretch
and it is strong enough to horse
big fish out of vegetation.
One of the newest applica-
tions for braided line is fishing
it with lipless crankbaits.
It allows anglers to have a

better feel with their bait
because it's more sensitive,
and it also allows them to pull
the lure free of vegetation,
which many times can produce
strikes from fish that saw the
erratic movement of the bait.
Fluorocarbon line, which
has been a saltwater fishing
staple for years, has made a
successful jump to freshwater
fishing applications.
Many anglers are now
using fluorocarbon as leaders
because the line is "nearly"
invisible to fish under water.
The line also offers good
strength. With those quali-
ties, fluorocarbon is taking its
place in anglers' tackleboxes
for split shot, drop shot and
Carolina rig applications as

well as for use with many
other finesse techniques.
Most anglers use monofila-
ment line, which can vary in
diameter. for tossing crank-
baits, spinnerbaits and plastic
worms.
Monofilament allows crank-
bait anglers to hang their baits
in underwater obstructions
and cover, but gives enough
stretch that anglers can often
work the lure free. Plus,
anglers can control the depth
their bait will travel by utiliz-
ing different diameter and
pound-test lines.
Heavy diameter lines, such
as 15-pound test and above, is
often used for fishing topwa-
ter lures. The line has huge
diameter and is more buoy-
ant, which allow topwater
baits to keep their "nose"
against the water.
Worm fisherman also use
the different size lines to con-
trol the fall rates of their
baits.

From staff reports

Three stellar speckled
trout weeks in January left
anglers chomping at the bit
when the season was out for
all of February.
Joe Spradley of Horseshoe
Marine said by mid-morning


on Wednesday he had
already put in 10 boats.
"Everybody is ready."
Spradley said. "With the pres-
sure off the fish the last eight
months, we are expecting a
great spring. The water has
got to warm up a little bit.
There has been no pressure


on the fish since Labor Day
except those three weeks in
January when they slaugh-
tered them.
"The crabbers and
shrimpers are seeing a lot of
trouts and redfish when they
go out. We just need good
weather."
