A new addition joins the list

six. As a precautionary meas-
ure, officials are closing the
road indefinitely.
Pinemount Road closed at
5:35 p.m. Wednesday, from
SW Rae Terrace to SW Mount

made the decision to close the
road because they are still
unsure if it will be affected by

Lake City resident
recalls true meaning of
Irish holiday.
By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter.com
If you call it a clover, Ellen
Rykard will be quick to cor-
rect you.
She said the symbols of St.
Patrick's Day are called
shamrocks, and the real ones
can only be found where
Rykard grew up.
A native of Banfry, Ireland,
and now a Lake City resi-
dent, Rykard will celebrate
today's holiday with her five
children and a meal- of her
favorite Irish foods bacon
and cabbage.


Rykard, 73, has lived in the
United States since she was
27, but she recalls her child-
hood St. Patrick's Day cele-
brations in Ireland with fond-
ness.
"On St. Patrick's Day, we
all go to Mass in the morn-
ing. Everyone gets dressed
in greenery and wears their
shamrocks," Rykard said.
The shamrock, she said, is
the essential part of the holi-
day. She said the story of St.
Patrick, an escaped slave
who converted pagans to
Christians, explains the
importance of the shamrock.
With its three leaves, sham-
rocks were used by St.

High School Step Show
slated for March 25 at

By ASHLEY CISNEROS
acisneros@lakecityreporter.com
""Y'all ain't ready!" shout the
girls of the Columbia High
School Step Team Wednesday
afternoon. They stomp and
clap their way, through another
performance before Step
Coach Veronica Collins stops
them to comment on their
stage presence.
"Your arms need to be
straight, and you need to be
looking straight ahead, see?"
she said as she demonstrated a


step.
The CHS Step Team is
preparing to host a regional
step competition March 25.
The CHS 2005 Spring Step
Show Competition Celebration
will take place in the CHS gym-
nasium from 7-11 p.m. with $5
admission.
Collins has been stepping
since she was in middle school
and volunteers as CHS's coach.
"We are hosting the competi-
tion and will perform first, but
will not be competing against
the other teams," she said.
This is the team's first year,
and they recently competed in
Ocala in February.
The team also won first run-
ner-up at a step competition at

Annual cancer walk drawing near


By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.com

Columbia County's seventh
annual Relay for Life is only
weeks away, and organizers
are looking for people dedi-
cated to help raise funds and
awareness in the fight against
cancer.
Coordinated by the
American Cancer Society and
a local volunteer committee,
'the event begins at 6 p.m.
April 8.
The event will run through
the night. Teams of 10-15 peo-
ple will each take turns walk-
ing, running or jogging for
about 18,hours total.
This year's theme is
"Around the World for a
Cure," which will have each
relay team choosing a coun-
try to represent.
Rosy Gottschalk, chair-


woman for the local relay,
said there are currently 22
teams who have already
signed up and paid their reg-
istration fees, with an addi-
tional nine who've given a ver-
bal commitment.
She said the goal this year
is to have at least 33 teams
and raise about $60,000.
"We are really excited
about it," Gottschalk said.
"We have room for many
more (teams) if they want to
sign up."
In addition to raising funds
for cancer research, educa-
tion and advocacy, the event
is intended to honor the vic-
tims and survivors of cancer.
After being held at the
Columbia County
Fairgrounds in 2004, the
event is moving back to its
regular home at Columbia
High School's stadium.


Jennifer Jeffres, unit execu-
tive director of the American
Cancer Society's High Five
Unit (which includes
Columbia, Bradford,
Hamilton, Suwannee and
Union counties), said the con-
cept of the overnight, 18-hour
relay is "Cancer doesn't
sleep."
While the relay is the pri-
mary event, there is also a fes-
tival-like atmosphere with a
"tent city" set around the
track where participants can
enjoy entertainment and
games, as well as sleep
between their shifts on the
track.
Jeffres said many of the
teams will be selling food
themed to the country they
are representing or various
other concessions as a way to
raise more funds during the
event.


But one of the most popular
aspects of the event is a lumi-
naria ceremony scheduled for
9 p.m. Luminaries will be dec-
orated with the names or pho-
tos of those who have sur-
vived or succumbed to can-
cer.
Luminaries can be pur-
chased for a donation of any
amount right up until the cer-
emony, however, people are
encouraged to purchase them
earlier in the evening.
Businesses, organizations
or individuals interested in
forming or joining a team for
the event can call Gottschalk
at 752-7594 to register.
The event will begin April 8
with a Survivor's Victory lap at
about 6 p.m., followed by a
Survivor's Reception dinner in
their honor. Gottschalk said
,about 200 cancer survivors are
expected to participate this year.


Murder indictment
Geralyn Graham, seen in this Oct. 4 2002 file photo, was
indicted Wednesday on charges of murdering Rilya Wilson.
Graham, who was supposed to be taking care of Rilya
Wilson, the 4-year-old foster child whose.disappearance
three years ago in Miami scandalized Florida's child-protec-
tion agency was also charged with kidnapping and aggravat-
ed assault.


Flag football game at Tiger Stadium will benefit city's Boys, Girls clubs


By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter.com

The big game at Columbia
High School's Tiger Stadium
this weekend features players
who regularly work car acci-
dents and house fires.
Members of Columbia


County EMS and the Lake City
Fire Department will play a flag
football game Saturday against
deputies from the Columbia
County Sheriff's Office.
Admission is free, but donations
will be collected for the Lake City
Girls' Club and the Boys' Club of
Columbia County. Anthony


Davis, one of the event's organiz-
ers, said the idea came out of
wanting to have fire and police
agencies together, away from
work.
"We wanted to get out families
involved and not just going to
work," Davis said. "Any way we
can give back to our communi-


ties and give back to our fami-
lies."
Along with the football game,
which begins at noon, there will
be a concessions stand, T-shirts
for sale and several raffles, with
all proceeds going to the Girls'
Club and Boys' Club.
This being the first year of the


event, Davis said there's no
telling what to expect, but he
does have an idea of what he'd
like to see.
Davis said other counties have
heard of the Columbia County
event and are planning their own
flag football games. The City of
Gainesville is planning one for


June, he said.
Gates open at 11 am. and the
event runs until 3 p.m.
Several area agencies will be
displaying emergency vehicles
and putting on displays to teach
children about safety. The first
200 children through the gate
will receive a free gift bag.

Birding




festival




a natural


tion of the annual Suwannee
River Valley Birding Festival.
It's just another event that sets
an example marking how valu-
able our natural resources are here in
Columbia County. For good measure, the
festival coincides with the Wild Azalea
Festival in White Springs another top-
notch natural attraction.
We are fortunate to have an organization
in place that can obtain the services of the
Florida Audubon Society and the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission to serve as wild birding
guides during the weekend event.
Registration will be held Friday at the
Alligator Lake Recreation Area.
Rare birds are seen on these tours and
normally, more than 50 different species
are sighted during each trip. Sometimes,
rare birds are seen and documented.
It's important to preserve our environ-
ment.
It's also equally important to showcase it
for visitors and new residents. We must
communicate to everyone how important
and fragile our local resources are.
The birding festival will draw a capacity
group to each tour. It's a good event that,
in the long run, will benefit all of us
through increased awareness and natural
outdoor activity.

the leadership.
They changed the rules to
make it easier to block ethics
investigations. And, for good
measure, they installed two
close DeLay allies on the
panel, Reps. Lamar Smith of
Texas and Tom Cole of
Oklahoma, who raise big
money for DeLay's political
action and legal defense
funds.
The leader is in hot water
again for possibly violating
House rules by accepting
overseas travel and other
favors from an American
Indian gambling lobbyist and
a registered agent of the
South Korean government.
These rules are arcane and
DeLay may have been an
innocent victim of their com-
plexity, but who's to say so?

Ichetucknee's declining critters


During the ninth annual Old Timers
Day at Ichetucknee Springs in
January, stories were told of catch-
ing crawfish in the springs and
river. before the state park was
established in 1970. It was a common and
enjoyable pastime to catch crawfish in the
Ichetucknee River and cook them on the river-
bank.
The University of Florida's renowned scien-
tist, Dr. Archie Carr, enjoyed crawfishing at
Ichetucknee with his family in the 1940s. In the
late 1960s one of his graduate students was
telling Archie about the large number of craw-
fish in the Ichetucknee and Archie remarked
that they use to be so plentiful that they were
"wall to wall" in the springs and river.
Unfortunately, the dense population of River
Crawfish has declined dramatically. Although
the state park has not permitted harvesting for
35 years, crawfish are rarely seen in the upper
three miles of the Ichetucknee River and have
disappeared in the other springs in the
Suwannee River Basin. Very little is known
about this large crawfish. It has small gills,
compared to other species of crawfish possibly
making it vulnerable to changes in oxygen lev-
els in the water flowing from the springs or it
may be affected by other chemical changes in
the water.
Nitrates have increased substantially in the
groundwater flowing to the springs in the
Suwannee Basin. The sources of this chemical
compound are agricultural fertilizer and live-
stock wastes, septic tanks and wastewater
sprayfields. Research has shown that nitrates
in water bodies can have serious affects on
frog populations. Nitrates have increased in
the groundwater in the Ichetucknee Basin and
are causing significant ecological changes in
the springs and river. Could this be the cause
of the disappearing crawfish?
Another critter is known to have declined
since the 1960s. According to herpetologist,
Dr. David Auth, the population of Loggerhead
Musk Turtles has also crashed. In 1968 he
noted several hundred musk turtles while
snorkeling three miles from the Ichetucknee
Headspring to the U.S 27 bridge. Today, far
fewer can be observed in the same stretch of

Utilizing,

ethics committee
admonished House
Republican leader
Tom DeLay three
times for unacceptable con-
duct. Back in Texas, a grand
jury was closing in on some of
the GOP leaders close associ-
ates.
Fearing that a few more
ethical bad breaks could cost
DeLay his powerful post, the
House leadership forced
through a number of changes
- which many House
Republicans had the good
grace to be embarrassed by
- intended to protect him in
any ethics probe.
They forced out the chair-
man, Rep. Joel Heffley of
Colorado, an exemplar of the
Republican right but, alas, too
independent-minded to suit


House ethics committee. The
leader offered to appear
before the panel because he is
"anxious" to be cleared.
"We want to work with the
ethics committee to prove
how baseless these and other
allegations are," DeLay said.
This is too rich.
The Democrats on the com-
mittee can use the same rules
intended to prevent further
investigations of the GOP
leader to block a probe that
might clear him.
And there is this nice little
irony: Having helped destroy
the credibility of the House
ethics committee, DeLay is
asking the panel to vindicate
him. Even if the committee
did, who would believe it?

"You have to make
sure you assign the right
person to the right job.
You should not have a
female law enforcement
officer guarding a large
man; they were physical-
ly incompatible."
Thomas Griggs, 65
Wellborn


"I've been a cop for 12
years, and you have to
have female officers to
deal with situations
involving females.
There are physical limi-
tations with women offi-
cers, but training and
experience can make a
big difference."

river. One could speculate that tubers are tak-
ing them home for their aquariums; however,
this little turtle's large head can give a painful
bite and the musk emitted when captured
would discourage most enthusiasts from tak-
ing them home.
At Wakulla Springs, south of Tallahassee,
increasing levels of nitrate flowing from the
spring have changed the ecology of the spring
and river causing the loss of the apple snail.
Since the apple snail is the primary food of the
limpkin, a wading bird that was the symbol of
Wakulla Springs, the limpkins have disap-
peared as well.
Dr. Fred Thompson of the Florida Museum
of Natural History determined that the popula-
tions of snails in the Ichetucknee have declined
considerably in recent years. This includes the
Ichetucknee Silt Snail that lives in the little
Coffee Spring and nowhere else in the world.
Has the increasing nitrate in the
Ichetucknee, caused the loss of snails that are
the food of the musk turtle? These snails, craw-
fish and turtles are the proverbial miners'
canaries that are warning us of contamination
in the groundwater flowing to our springs.
The first surveys of crawfish and other small
aquatic animals in the Ichetucknee have'
recently been conducted; however, we don't
know what other animal life may be missing
that once inhabited Florida's springs. Perhaps
future studies will unravel the mysteries of the
Ichetucknee's disappearing critters.

Working Group. He has been involved in the
protection and management of Ichetucknee
Springs since 1970.

"I feel safe here. I
think the event is serious
but it's been over publi-
cized, and it's a bit over-
whelming. It is a bizarre
set of events. I could go

Patrick to symbolize the
Trinity of the Father, the Son
and the Holy Spirit.
After Mass, Rykard said
she remembers having a
large meal, and then attend-
ing boisterous parades and
parties, with the whole town
out on the streets, dancing
and drinking beer.
"It's a wonderful day," she
said.
Having lived in the United
States for 45 years, Rykard
said she has yet to again be in
Ireland during St. Patrick's


Day. And now that she's a
survivor of lung cancer and
in her 70s, she says there's
one part of the celebrations
she will no longer partake in.
"I won't be drinking, I
know that much," she said.
Rykard said there aren't
many Irish traditions the
Americans get wrong when
they celebrate, but one she
doesn't understand is the ten-
dency to dye rivers and alco-
hol.
"There's no such thing as
green beer," she said.
Rykard said a real Irish
beer perfect for celebrating
St. Patrick's Day is, without
hesitation, Guinness.

SINKHOLE
Continued from page 1A
Columbia County Emergency
Management.
"Are these holes part of big
caverns underneath
Pinemount? We don't know for
sure," he said.
The latest sinkhole is in
Pueschel's Pond, just east of
the fifth hole to open up, which
is also in the pond. The sinks


in Pueschel's Pond are not
exactly visible from the road,
but trees that have fallen in
can be seen, Campbell said.
Ronnie McCardle, interim
director of emergency man-
agement, and County
Commissioner George
Skinner found the sixth sink
Wednesday. Both have been
frequenting the sinkholes
since March 1, in order to
assess potential problems,


Campbell said.
As before, interested specta-
tors are asked to not visit the
sinkhole.
"We are asking that people
avoid the temptation to be
curious," Campbell said.
A power pole near the sixth
sink appears to be leaning, but
Florida Power and Light is
monitoring the case, Campbell
said.
He also said it's not clear if


recent rains have urged the
new holes to form, but that it's
not helping the situation.
The fifth sinkhole has
grown, Campbell said, and is
now about 100 by 100 feet. The
largest of the sinkholes,
Mimi's Sink, remains a similar
size, with the home of Susie
and Red Roberts still sitting at
its edge. The other sinkholes
have not changed much,
Campbell said.


WOMAN

nominees and presented
Peters with her award.
Peters was nominated by
her son and said she was
"very surprised and honored
to receive the award."
She earned a bachelor's
degree in theology from
International Seminary in
June 2001 and was ordained in
August of that year.
Peters has remained active
with Aglow International for
the past 22 years, with 14
being in Lake City,
She seeks to break down
barriers among women of dif-
ferent faiths by holding the
organization's meetings in dif-
ferent churches.
Her many outreaches
include collecting blankets for
the homeless, food for soup
kitchens and school supplies
for needy children.
Additionally, she has aided
women of domestic violence
and has thrown baby showers
for the Pregnancy Crisis
Center.
Peters remains active at
Christ Central Ministries as a
singles minister, first touch
minister, usher and teacher of
Logos College classes in
Jacksonville.
She has also served as the
Ministerial Alliance secretary
for the past year.
"I have been inspired by
four special women in my life,
including my grandmother,
mother and two ladies unrelat-
ed to me who really helped me
in my ministry," Peters said..
Peters credits her strong
faith in God as the key to her
success.
"I gain satisfaction from
helping others," she said.
'That brings me joy."
The award ceremony was


the highlight of the women's
history month program.
Dr. Charles Hall, president
of LCCC, spoke and shared a
quote with the audience by
Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, a well-
respected Mormon author,
who 'said, "'Well-behaved
women rarely make history.'"
Hall shared several statis-
tics about women's contribu-
tions to society and named
several women who were
firsts in their fields.
Dean of Student Services
Barbara Anderson shared her
feelings on how norms have
changed for women, asking
women in the audience wear-
ing slacks to stand up.
Anderson spoke of her days
at the University of Florida
when women couldn't wear
pants and her challenge of
finding suitable skirts as a
young teacher.
The keynote speaker of the
ceremony was local attorney
Leandra Lily Goyenechea
Johnson.
She spoke on the topic,
"Our History is Our Strength."
She highlighted how the
women's movement devel-
oped as women began to ques-
tion their position in society.
Johnson described how this
movement changed the way
history was written and ignit-
ed a larger social movement
that empowered other minori-
ties.
Dr. Sheri Carder presided
over the ceremony and
amused the audience with
readings of 1950s literature of
how an ideal woman should
act.
She ended the event with
having audience members
read quotes she said mothers
of famous people might have
said, such as Albert Einstein.
Entertainment included
songs by Janet. Mincey and
Audre Washington and a
poem read by Vickie LePore.

"I would define stepping as
creating a beat with your feet

group setting, the steps are
done similar to a dance, but
makes one unified sound."
If they have not mastered the
routine by the day before the'


show, Collins will not allow
them to perform.
Collins also teaches a team
for younger girls called 2-Cute,
a community step team.
The younger girls will com-
pete on April 9.
Elizabeth Gist, a senior, said
she has learned about team-
work from participating on the
step team.
"I have learned how to work

Promise of

a new day

O n Saturday,
Fort White
High coach
Bob Hochmuth
and his players
reflected on the end of anoth-
er soccer season, and the
Indians also looked forward
to what lies ahead.
Players who totaled 25 of
the Indians' 31 goals will
return next year, including
Most Valuable Attacker
Connor Hayden, whose 10
goals led the team.
Where the Indians will be
hurt most is on the defen-
sive end, where stalwart
defensive Co-MVPs Jordan
Finley and Bryan Taylor
will be lost to graduation.
They are just two of the
nine seniors Fort White will
lose this year.
Although the start of the
2005 season is still months
away, Hochmuth already has
his eyes on replacements for
his departing defenders.
"One of the possibilities
is Jason Shiver," Hochmuth
said. "He has an awful lot of
innate ability. The question
is how quickly would he
adapt as a 10th-grader."
Another option is Blake
Milliken. "He has done
extremely well for us,"
Hochmuth said.
Most Valuable Midfielder
Mario Barrera and Team
MVP Michael Willianms may
not see much time on
defense, since, as
Hochmuth said, "They have
so many things they can do
on the field."
Finley, Dusty Shiver and
Taylor were "the most impor-
tant captains I've ever had,"
Hochmuth said at the ban-
quet and Shiver will be
departing as well. Hochmuth
hopes the leadership void
can be filled by soon-to-be-
seniors Hayden, Matt Case
and Andrew Sherrer.
"Other people that are
looked up to that would do
it include Mario Barrera,"
Hochmuth added.
What the Indians lose in
experience, they should
make up for in skill, which
Hochmuth said his 10th-
grade group "has an awful
lot of."
The other positive for the
Indians is a new district.
The Florida High School
Athletic Association Web
site currently lists Fort
White in a three-team dis-
trict with Newberry High
and state semifinalist RK.
Yonge School in Class 3A.
"I think it's going to be a
lot better for us," Hochmuth
said. Gone are Santa Fe
High and Keystone Heights
High, perennial obstacles to
Fort White's state playoff
dreams. This year the
Raiders defeated Fort White
in the district semis on a
controversial late penalty
kick that gave them a 3-2
win.
Hochmuth also implored
his players at the banquet
to continue improving, cit-
ing that Fort White will
again be hosting an MLS
soccer camp on July 12
which he encouraged every
player to take part in.
Indians and Columbia
High Tigers will also play
alongside each other as
part of an Under-18 travel
team this summer.
There is opportunity in
the upcoming season, and
the players and coaches
hope to seize it.
Mario Sarmento can be
reached at 754-0420, or at

PREP ROUNDUP


Fort White weightlifting makes it six in a row


By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter. corn
The Fort White High weightlifting
team improved to 6-0 after defeating
Williston High 63-25 on Wednesday.
"Really, they've far exceeded my
expectations Coach Mike Hunter
said. "Yeah, we have some good lifters.
Some of our other guys came
through."
The Indians won every weight class
except the unlimiteds.


George Griffith won the 119-pound
weight class with 350 points. Chris
Griffith won the 129s with 390 points.
Brian Coker won first in the 139s with
405 points. James Pope took first in
the 154s with 420 points..
Donald Lewis placed first in the
169s with 455 points.
"Donald is one who has really sur-
prised me," Hunter said.
Jonathan James also won in the
183s with 530 points. Cody Croft won
the 199s with 500 points.


Ervin Armstrong moved down to
the 219s and won that class with 530
points. Trevares Holden moved up to
the 238s and won with 540 points.
Kenny Bryant finished second .in
the unlimiteds.
The Indians travel to Live Oak for
the sub-sectionals next Friday at 5
p.m., where all lifters have to lift in
their weight classes. That means
Coker and Pope will be reunited in the
139s, and Holden and Armstrong will
compete in the 219s.


Suwannee outlifts CHS


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
There was also thunder and
lightning inside Wednesday,
as the Columbia High and
Suwannee High weightlifting
teams squared off in the CHS
weight room. The Bulldogs
prevailed 51-38.
Columbia had four weight-
class winners and also put up
some tape the term for
breaking a school record.
Jeremiah Fulton and Rene
Perry each clean and jerked
'320 pounds, which was a
school record in the 238-
pound weight class and the
heavyweight, respectively.
Fulton won his weight
class, as did Robbie Rassel
(119 pounds), Caleb Car-
michael (139) and Josh Mor-
ris (183).
Perry placed second at
heavyweight.
'We have been working out
hard and working more on
technique," Perry said about
:his record.
'"We made a pact to break
the record this year. It feels
good, like I'm on top of the
world."
Perry, a sophomore, and
senior Fulton feed on trying
to outdo each other.
'We work together every
day and it helps us out,"
Fulton said. "We try to over-
load each other and that
builds us up."
Morris' 280 clean and jerk
was a personal best and
impressive since he just
moved up to the 183-pound
class from 169.
"I am hoping to break the
school record of 315 by the
second sectional and qualify
for state," Morris said. "I did


"It's going to hurt us like in the 154
where we're not very strong," Hunter
said. "It'll help us overall with the com-
petition between the guys."
The top four in each weight class
will qualify for the sectionals at Union
County High on April 6.

Local man's sunshine


bass makes FWC wall


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
It was a bad day for fishing, and he
was using the wrong bait, but it pro-
duced a 9.63-pound sunshine bass
for Ken Hohmann.
The hybrid striped bass was 25
inches long with a girth of 23 inches.
Hohmann donated the fish to the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission regional office,
to join the mounted collection on its
walls.
Hohmann caught the bass in
Eagle Lake Fish Management Area,
which is at Occidental, in his second
trip to the area. He was fishing with
Mike Lyon.
"It was about 4:30-5 p.m. and a
windy day," Hohmann said. "I was
using a beetlespin. It is a tiny, tiny
lure, and the hooks aren't really
strong. I usually use them for pan-
fish. It was at the top of my tackle
box, and nothing else was working."
Hohmann might have cut the line,
except it began to move.
"I first thought I had a snag," he
said. "We were drifting with the
wind, and I thought I had hit a log. It
took out 40-50 yards of line and took


10 minutes to land."
Hohmann is a catch-and-release
advocate, but the size of the fish con-
vinced him and Lyon to check it with
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission. The sun-
shine bass was well below record
weight, but it will have its place of
honor.
'They said they didn't have one
mounted, so I donated it to the
regional office," Hohmann said.
Hohmann makes the rounds of
local lakes Palestine, Peacock,
Jeffrey and Watertown among them
- and also fishes the rivers. He reg-
ularly returns to his home state of
Michigan where he fishes for stur-
geon.
Hohmann promised to pass along
fishing results and a few stories. He
already has one good one.
He and Lyon were returning from
fishing on the Suwannee River when
they saw a dog in the water.
They turned around to see if they
could help the dog, and it appeared
to be chasing a duck in the water.
When they got close, the dog lunged
and caught the bird and headed to
shore.
Turns out, the bird was a turkey.
