School evacuated


Chlorine leak

shuts down

Melrose Park

Elementary

By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter.com
A chlorine leak at a Lake
City water treatment plant
Wednesday afternoon forced
officials to evacuate 550 stu-
dents from Melrose Park
Elementary School.
Students walked two
blocks to Richardson Middle
School, 646 Pennsylvania St.,
said Capt. Gary Laxton,
spokesman for the Lake City
Police Department.
Dispatch received a 911
call concerning the leak at
1:16 p.m. Authorities from
LCPD, Florida Highway
Patrol and the Columbia
County Sheriff's Office were
able to evacuate the school,
reroute area roads, secure
the leak and reopen streets
again at 2:06 p.m., Laxton
said.
No one was reported
injured.
The leak was caused when
chlorine gas began to seep
out of the valve on a one-ton
cylinder. The Lake City Fire
Department's Hazmat team
was responsible for securing
the leak.
City Manager Joe Cone
said the leak and subsequent
evacuation shows having a
water plant and a school next
to each other is not a good
idea.
"What this does is just fur-
ther point out the need to
relocate the water plant to
the east side of town."
Laxton said a water plant
and a school being neighbors
has been a worry to law
enforcement.
'That particular water
plant has always been of con-
cern because of its close
proximity to a school," he
said.
The city is currently wait-
ing to award a bid for con-
struction of a new $12.5 mil-

mayoral race


Lake City residents

By JUSTIN LANG

More and more residents
are showing interest in run-
ning for mayor.
Lake City resident Margaret
Wuest said she plans to run for
mayor and has picked up a can-
didate packet from the City
Clerk's office.
But Audrey Sikes, city clerk,
said Wuest has yet to file her
"statement of candidate,"
announcing her official intent
to run for the office.
Sikes said Debbie Friedman,
a Florida Department of
Transportation employee and
city resident, has picked up her

lion water treatment plant on
12 acres just east of Lake City
Community College. That
project is expected to be com-
pleted within the next two
years.
Also, because the more
modern plant will primarily
use ozone to treat the water,
which is non-toxic, Cone said
a large amount of potentially
dangerous gases like chlo-
rine will no longer be needed.
Mike Millikin, assistant
superintendent of administra-
tion for Columbia County
Schools, said though schools
don't typically prepare for a
chlorine leak, students par-
ticipate in emergency drills
and were ready.
Millikin said buses were
ready to pick Melrose Park
students up at Richardson
Middle School. Students
were released at their regu-
larly scheduled time of 2:15
p.m.
Denise Kirby was volun-
teering at Melrose Park for

occurred. She said teachers
were quick to lead students
off school property and to the
Richardson auditorium.
"They knew exactly what
to do and where to take the


kids," she said. "It didn't take

Kirby said the children
weren't worried at all, most
likely because they thought

Sikes said on Wednesday
city residents Koby Adams and
John Newman also picked up
candidate packets.
Sikes said people "have to
sign for a packet, but that does
not necessarily lock them in as
being a candidate."
The packets include all
forms and information, both
general and legal, that a person
needs to know about being a
candidate.
The city has set the official
qualifying period for the special
election between noon on
March 21 and noon on March

Fourth sinkhole opens off Pinemount Road


Latest sinkhole found a
few feet away from
Mucho Mulch office.

By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter. corn
, Four sinkholes now line a
street west of Lake City after
another hole formed Tuesday
afternoon.
The latest hole is on the
property of Mucho Mulch,
1456 SW Pinemount Road.
Officials say the hole was
found after an employee on a
backhoe noticed the ground
giving way. '
Melissa Olin, vice president
of Mucho Mulch, said the
hole is a few feet from the
office and measures about six

feet across.
Unlike Mimi's Sink, on the
property of Susie and Red
Roberts and the largest of the
four holes, the Mucho Mulch
sinkhole does not contain
water.
'"We're a little concerned,"
Olin said. "Right now, there's
no real reason to be upset."
The Mucho Mulch sinkhole
is roped off and doesn't
appear to have grown much
since it first opened, but Olin
said some cracks appear to
indicate it may get bigger.
Columbia County Sheriff's
Office spokeswoman Laurie
Windham said there are no
plans to close Pinemount
Road again.
The road had been closed
for several days last week
when Mimi's Sink was first

growing.
Mimi's Sink was the first
sinkhole to open, appearing
around 5 a.m. on March 1.
Later that day, a second sink-
hole opened southwest of
Mimi's Sink, off Pinemount
Road.
A third sinkhole opened
Tuesday morning, according
to Sheriff Bill Gootee, ten feet
from Mimi's Sink, on the
Robertses' property. The
fourth hole, which is the one
at Mucho Mulch, opened
Tuesday afternoon.
Olin said she has noticed
more traffic and activity on
Pinemount Road since Mimi's
Sink opened. Last week, she
said, was worse.
"The area's definitely been
busier than usual," she said.
"It's been pretty congested."

Adopt a Soldier: CHS club plans for Guard members' deployment


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

Soldiers in the 153rd
Combat Engineer Company of
the Lake City National Guard
could be taking a slice of home
with them next month when
they are deployed overseas.
The Columbia High School
.Interact Club has launched a
program where local residents
can "adopt" a soldier from the
local unit and pack a shoe box
with items a soldier may need.


Debra Wright, Columbia
High School Student Activities
director, said before
Christmas the Interact Club
sponsored the Shoe Boxes for
Soldiers Collection Drive.
During that drive they sent
local troops shoe boxes filled
with items needed abroad.
"It was so successful that
Sgt. Timothy Bailey (recruiter
for the Lake City National
Guard) asked us if we would
undertake the project of
preparing shoe boxes for our


local national guard unit,"
Wright said.
"We are busy trying to get
individuals to 'adopt' these sol-
diers to help us fill these
boxes."
According to the list given
to Wright, 114 soldiers from
the Lake City National Guard
Unit will be deployed as part of
the 153rd Combat Engineer
Company.
"We haVe the boxes. We just
need people who will 'adopt'
the soldiers and put materials


in the boxes for the soldiers,"
she said.
"What I think is really neat
about this project is people can
'adopt' their own soldier. They
(soldiers) are going to be
there at least a year, and when
you get a box you are not just
sending it to a random person
- you'll be sending it to, a
named person and you can
correspond with them
throughout the year.
"I'm sure they would be
glad to get a letter about


what's going on in Columbia
County."
Items that can be donated
for the boxes include:
E Personal hygiene item
0 Reading materials
Batteries
M Music
M Lotion
0 Letters
0 Any other items soldiers
could use while stationed
abroad.,
"It's important that we sup-
port our military personnel,


regardless of our feelings on
the war," Wright said.
"This is what they've been
asked to do and they're over in
a strange place with lots of
adversity."
Anyone interested in partic-
ipating in the program can call
755-8096.
"We want everyone to get
involved so when we send
these soldiers off, they'll know
that Lake City and Columbia
County, as a whole, is behind
them."

coached the Tigers through some glorious
seasons, playoff runs and many exciting
times during his nine years as the head
coach. He took a year off from Columbia
to pursue other opportunities and now is
back with a rekindled fire.
From Day 1, he has talked more about
being more high-profile in the community
and becoming a better team player with
the Columbia supporters. That is sweet
music to hear.
On his first day back on the job, Coach
Green talked about the discipline and dedi-
cation that is shown by Columbia athletes
'in the program and how these young.men
show respect, set goals and work hard to
accomplish successfuLathletic seasons....
Coach Green has a great foundation at
CHS. He is grounded in the program.
It's great to see him back on duty with
the Tigers. It gives us something to really
look forward to in the fall.

there are."

"Most of Florida is on
sinkholes isn't it? Pretty
soon Florida will be one

Offended by
headline


Webster's New World
Dictionary defines "gawk" as
to stare stupidly. By using the
below the fold headline,
"Gawkers Beware," did you
intend to infer the actions of
all of the Lake City, Columbia
and Suwannee County resi-
dents who viewed the sink-
hole as stupid or did you
intend to infer the people
themselves were stupid?
What did you mean,
"Gawkers Beware"? What
should these "gawkers" be
aware of? I could find nothing
in the article that warrants


this headline, but maybe
because I viewed the sinkhole,
I am considered stupid.
It seems to me the only per-
son showing respect and
understanding to the area res-
idents is our new Sheriff Bill
Gootee. He said and I quote,
"curiosity seekers haven't cre-
ated much of a problem yet,"
however he asked people to
use "extreme caution when
driving through the area of
the sinkhole because of peo-
ple driving slow or parking
and walking to get a closer
look at 'Mother Nature.'"
Sheriff Gootee went on to
say "we are asking people to
be very cautious of pedestri-


ans.
"For the most part it has not
been a problem" and "how
many times do you get to see a
sinkhole."
The only thing I can find in
one of Sheriff's Gootee's com-
ments that would even justify
the headline for this article is
"We're not sure what's going
to happen next week." Well,
duh. Who is sure of anything
that's going to happen next
week. I think the writer of this
article, the editor and the pub-
lisher owe an apology to the
readers of the Lake City
Reporter for this insult.

What are your thoughts on the
sinkhole?


"It's unfortunate. Natural
disasters are a fact of life.
If there's anymore rain, it
looks like all that water
would come together and
form one big lake. We
have kinfolks calling all
the way from
Jacksonville asking us to
update them on the sink-
hole."

istered to vote have until April

in the upcoming special elec-
tion for mayor.

Suspicion

abounds in

baseball
he baseball sea-
son is in its
beginning
stages, and all
anyone can still
talk about is steroids. The
drug has taken over the
national pastime, both in
the headlines and in the
thoughts of fans.
I know that when I think
of baseball now, I no longer
think about the players'
strike in 1994 (a good
thing) or Mark McGwire
and Sammy Sosa chasing
and ultimately catching
Roger Maris in 1998 (not
a good thing).
Now when I watch a base-
ball game or see anything
about baseball in the news,
steroids is virtually the first
thing that pops in my head.
I wonder which players
are using and which aren't.
And like other journalists, I
find myself no longer think-
ing about a player's great
effort to achieve a record. I
now wonder if they took
something illegal to attain
the record.
Barry Bonds, Jason
Giambi, McGwire and Sosa
have become the central
figures in what has become
the steroid witchhunt.
Major League Baseball
could have prevented all
this from happening years
ago if the owners, commis-
sioner and the players had
all sat down to legislate
against steroids.
But, as San Diego Padres
General Manager Kevin
Towers pointed out in a
recent article in ESPN the
Magazine, everyone was
too seduced by the eye-pop-
i ping numbers and base-
ball's rising popularity to
notice or care.
o Ultimately, public percep-
tion can have the most
damning effect on a sport,
whether that perception is
real or not.
That's why the Black Sox
scandal of 1919 nearly
destroyed the game, and
why the owners felt a judge
Keenesaw Mountain
Landis was the right man
for the commissioner's job.
Landis promptly banned
all involved in the scandal
and brought legitimacy
back to baseball.
Now, more than 80 years
later, baseball is again
under attack in the court of
public opinion. Ken
' Caminiti's admission of his
steroid use and Jose
Canseco's recent tell-all
book have put the game
under an increasingly harsh
spotlight.
To their credit, the pow-
ers that be have finally
imposed steroid testing as




why now? Obviously, owners
and players had to take this
drastic measure to save what
little integrity remains in the
game. And ,he real shame is
what is happening to the
players. Like him or not,
Bond s is chasing one of the
greatest marks in sports.
And when he finally does
pass Hank Aaron, the shame
will come in those who won-
der if the new mark should
come with an asterisk
attached.
Mario Sarmento can be
reached at 754-0420, or at
msarmento@

"I felt really good about hit-
ting," Drake said. "I'm glad I
quit dinking the ball and am
hitting with authority."
Marie Croft led off the bot-
tom of the first inning with a
bunt single. She stole second
base, moved to third on a wild
pitch and scored on Drake's
single. Drake stole second
and Parker singled her home.
Chelsea Blair single in Parker.
After her triple in the third
inning, Drake scored on a
ground ball
by Parker.
OBlair sin-
gled later
TrxE s n nin the

SIn the
four th
inning,
Megan Bart tripled with one
out and scored on a single by
Drake. Parker then went deep.
for the first time. Jenna Payne
followed with a single and
advanced when Blair reached
on an error. Jamie Daniels sin-
gled Payne home.
Parker capped the scoring
when she pulled a 3-0 pitch
over the left-field fence in the
sixth inning.
Daniels was the starting
pitcher for CHS and went four
innings to get the win. She
gave up four hits and one run,
with two walks and three
strikeouts.
Tiffany Mallard finished on
the mound in her first action
of the regular season. In three
scoreless innings, she gave up
two hits, walked one and
struck out two.
The Lady Tigers punctuat-
ed the win with an around-the-
horn double play. Columbia
escaped a bases-loaded jam in
the fourth inning when Bart
speared a line drive and dou-
bled the runner off third.


JENNIFER CHASTEEN/Lake City Reporter
Columbia High softball player Jamie Daniels works on her
bunting at practice. Daniels and the Lady Tigers improved to
7-0 with a 9-1 win over Forrest High on Wednesday.


, "In fact, I didn't find out
(about the injury) until 3:45,"
CHS head coach Mary Hale
said. 'The girls were huddled
up, so they might have found
out a little earlier. Sometimes


things happen and you have
to be ready. That's why you
practice everybody."
Columbia (7-0, 3-0) travels
to Forrest (1-5) for a 7 p.m.
game today.

By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
Kori Drake found out
Wednesday afternoon she
would be catching for
Columbia High's softball team
for the first time this season.
No problem. Drake put in
an error-free performance
behind the plate and com-
bined with Rachel Parker on
offense to overpower visiting
Forrest High, 9-1.
Catcher Brittany Johnston
suffered an injury to her hand
while working out at St. Johns
River Community College and
will be out of the line-up for an
indeterminate period of time.
"It's been a year, but I felt
really good actually," Drake
said. "I was nervous at first -
I had big shoes to fill with
Brittany. The team helped me
out. They told me I could do it
and that gave me some confi-
dence."
If there were butterflies,
Drake calmed them by gun-
ning down Forrest's lead-off
base runner who tried to
steal. She threw out another
runner in the second inning.
"That kind of set the tone,"
Drake said. "It made me feel
like, you can do it, you can do
it."
The Lady Tigers jumped on
the Rebels for three runs in
the first inning. Columbia
added one run in the third
inning, four more in the
fourth and one in the sixth.
Parker blasted two home
runs and had an RBI-single.
She drove in runs in every
plate appearance and finished
with five RBIs and scored
three runs.
Drake had a pair of RBI-sin-
gles and ripped a lead-off
triple in the third inning. She
also scored three runs.

defeated Keystone Heights High on Wednesday.

FORT WHITE Make it
three in a row for the Fort'
White High boys weightlifting
team.
The Indians won seven
weight classes on their way to
a 50-39 victory over Keystone
Heights High on Wednesday.
"Real good again," Coach
Mike Hunter said. "Almost all
our lifters had an increase.
That's what you're trying to
do in weightlifting. You try to
show some progress in every
meet, and that's what we did."
George Griffith won the
119-pound weight class with


330 points. Little brother
Steven came in second with
200 points.
"It wasn't my best," George
Griffith said. "I'm pretty happy
with my clean-and-jerk. I'm
right where I wanted to be."
A third brother, Chris, won
the 129s with a personal best
of 395 points.
"I got 210, and I should've
got 190, but I couldn't get it
over my head," Chris said.
"I'm going to try to work on
my shoulders to get the 190."
Brian Coker won the 139s
for the second straight meet
with 395 points, but he wasn't
happy with the effort.
"I was very disappointed


with my bench," he said. "I
dropped 10 pounds, but I was
able to make up for it with my
clean-and-jerk."
Coker also came up short
in his "friendly" rivalry with
teammate James Pope. In
Fort White's first meet, the
two lifted in the same weight
class and finished with identi-
cal scores. But Coker won
because he weighed one
pound less than Pope.
On Wednesday, Pope won
the 154s with 415 points. Tim
Robinson finished second
with 310 points.

it is. The challenge is making more people

Rapalas:

The best

spring lure?
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
With spring only weeks
away, many anglers are sali-
vating at the chance of using
their spring-time baits to catch
pre-spawn, bedding and post-
spawn fish.
Stick baits jerkbaits for
people on the northern side of
the Mason-Dixon line and
twitch baits for people on the
southern side such as min-
now imitations, are one of the
top-10 lures any angler can
have in his box and will work
on fish in either stage of the
spawn.
However, they way anglers
use these baits is often as var-
ied as the way they pronounce
the premier
Sminn ow
company's
name.
The top .
minnow '-
bait in fish-
ing history
Sis the origi- -
nai floating
Rapala min-
S now.
n Anglers
up north,
who pro- '
nounce the
baits as
Rap-a-las, use minnow-type
lures as jerkbaits.
Jerkbaits, such as Rattlin
Rogues, Ripplin Red Fins, and '
Storm Thunder Sticks are
minnow-type lures that are
fished below the surface.
Anglers who have mastered
the "jerk-jerk patise" retrieve
have been known to slay fish
on these, baits in the north's
colder water.
.Fishing the baits ..on ,10'
pound test line will normally
get them down to four or five
feet and many times the fish
hit the bait while it's at, rest.
The bait's tight wiggle often
triggers strikes from fish that
have been feeding on min-
nows during the winter.
However in the south,
: anglers pronounce the baits
as Ra-pa-las, and use them as
twitch baits.
Twitch baits, Bomber Long
A's, Rebel Minnows' and
Bagley's Bang-O-Lure are also
minnow-type lures, but are
fished. as topwater baits.
Normally fished.on at least 15-
pound test line, crafty anglers,
manipulate the bait with a
* series of slight rod twitches,
often enticing fish to suck the
bait below the surface. The
heavy line allows the bait to
float and in warmer water, fish
will often jump out the water
to get the bait.
Without a doubt, the Rapala
original floating minnow is one
of the most versatile spring-
time baits ever conceived for
northern or southern anglers.

Art from a turkey wing


Richard Odom wins

award for his work

By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
In the hands of Richard Odom, the
turkey wing becomes a work of art.
Odom recently earned Honorable
Mention in the Traditional Thread
Wrapped Wingbone Yelper division of
the National Wild Turkey Feder-
ation's Grand National Decorative
Turkey Call contest.
If you think that is hard to say, try
making one of those babies.
Odom brings together the three
bones in a turkey wing for a turkey
call that is both serviceable and
decorative.
"It surprises the fire out of me
every time I do one," Odom said. "You
start with a regular bone and make it
look like a call. It takes on a look of
glass or ivory. The amount of polish
that bone can take is amazing."
The smaller bones of the wing
make up the mouthpiece and middle
portion, while the large bone is the
top or bell.
The parts are assembled and the
call is tuned before it is glued togeth-
er, using epoxy.
"Getting it smooth inside is the
biggest trick," Odom said.
"A lot of guys ask how, but natural-
ly I don't tell them. On the bells, you
don't want to get it so thin that you
break it before you get it done. The
length of the bones, their thickness
and the size of the bell make a
difference."
Once the call is useable, then the
decorating begins.
"That's when the work starts, get-
ting a high finish on it and doing the
thread wrap," Odom said.
"It takes maybe 10 coats of thread
to smooth over the epoxy. You use the
same stuff as fly-tiers use on their
The thread wrap can be expanded
up and. down the bones for
decoration. :
From there, the creative instincts
take over.
"The one I sent to the national com-
petition was cast in gold on the

mouthpiece and bell," Odom said.
"Dr. (Reeve) Abraben helped cast it
and it made thatone uniquewith the
gold pieces."
Odom submitted his turkey call
entry by mail this year the NWTF's
29th annual Convention and Sports
Show was in Nashville, Tenn., but
he plans on attending in 2006.
"I am starting plans on what I am
enltring -nxtx y-ai;," Odom-said. +

at Baker Correctional Institution and
a former, teacher at his alma mater,

"I have won best of show in wood-
carving and pretty much have got
pieces all over the world," Odom said.
"I carved wizards from lightered
knots and made walking staffs and
canes out of crape myrtle. I put com-
pany logos, football teams, army
patches and everything else on
them."
C .:rape: myrtle, seemed a -strange'
choice.
"I came on it by happenstance,"
Odom said.
"If you treat the bark right, it will
stay on and look like leather. It is a
creamy-colored, straight-grained
hardwood."

Odom's introduction to turkey calls
came after he imposed on friend
Rusty Hart to take his wife, Rose,
turkey hunting.
"I wanted her to harvest a turkey
and we finally got her to shoot it,"
Odom said.
"She-has been hooked ever since.
Now, a lot of things for us evolve
around turkey season."
That involvement included mem-
berships in the NWTF and Women in
the Outdoors and Odom served as
auctioneer at the recent banquet of
the Suwannee Valley Longbeards
Chapter.
He also donated a turkey call to the
organization.
Odom made his first call for anoth-
er friend, Mike Pridgen, who had one
of suspect quality.
"I said with what I can do with
wood, I can do a better than that,"
Odom said.
"It is a natural progression from
woodcarving when you start turkey
hunting."
Odom's first calls were works in
progress and, as he got better, he
requested the early ones back to fix
them. He takes orders and makes as
many as 30 calls in a year. Call him at
752-0747.
"We can't deal in game animals, so
you to furnish the bones and I do the
labor and make the calls," Odom said.
"A number of hunters just save the
wings. They throw them in the freez-
er and bring them to me."
Odom's award-winning turkey call
came from the bird he used to make a
call for Josh Whitehead in Lake
Butler.
While the calls can be used' on a
hunt, Odom said many are retired
after a successful harvest. The trophy
call is framed with the spurs and
beard.. I
Some hunters like them for their
collections.
The colorful calls make nice .gifts
-.andOdomr continues to1,imnprovE ,hi
craft.
"It seems the more I do the better
they get," Odom said. "I have a good
time doing this and would love to do
some more. It really is a thrill when
you get one done. They can't believe
it can go from a wing to that."
