evacuation

withdrawn;

road opens

By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.com
Residents who had been
displaced from a mobile
home park off Pinemount
Road following the discovery
of an underground cavern
received good news
Wednesday.
After county officials met
Wednesday afternoon, they
decided that test results of an
underground cavern, esti-
mated to be about 80 feet in
diameter and about 60 feet
below the ground of Shady
Oaks Mobile Home Park,
showed it wasn't a safety
threat to about 20 residents.
"They are saying that cav-
ern has filled up with mud
and water and as far as they
can tell, a lot more stable and
safe than the initial tests
appeared might be the case,"
said Harvey Campbell, pub-
lic information officer for
Columbia County
Emergency Management.
Geological engineering
and materials testing firm
Cal-Tech Testing of Lake
City conducted several tests
of the cavern since its discov-
ered, including drilling deep
into the earth Monday and
putting a camera into the cav-
ity to get a closer look.
The cavern was discov-
ered Friday and was of imme-
diate concern to emergency
officials after six sinkholes
have formed within a 1/2
mile of each other off
Pinemount Road since
March 1.
Campbell said attempts to
contact the residents, who.
were put'up at local hotels-by
the American Red Cross,
would, begin Wednesday
evening. But because their
vouchers from the Red Cross
didn't run out until today, he
said he expected many to

stay in the hotels through
Wednesday night and return
home to their mobile homes


sometime this morning.
Because the cavern is so
far below ground and
appears not to be an empty
void, Campbell said officials
are not considering it an
"unsafe situation."
He said in all likelihood
the cavern has been beneath
the mobile home park prop-
erty for a long time.
Just west from the mobile
home park on Wednesday.
sinkhole No. 5,j which
formed last week in a
swampy area of Pueschel
Pond, had filled up with


water.
Previously it had opened
up to swallow several large
trees and drain more water
out of the nearby pond.
However, by Wednesday
afternoon it looked only like
a water-filled bog, with no
outward indication of the
mammoth sinkhole lurking
beneath the surface.

High winds wreak havoc


Tree falls on home; family displaced


By SEAN JAREM
sjarem@lakecityreporter.com
An oak tree crashed
through the mobile home of
Robert and Connie Wilson in
northern Columbia County
on Tuesday as high winds
wreaked havoc across much
of the region.
The family of seven
escaped injury after the tree
ripped through a bedroom
ceiling of the double-wide
mobile home located off U.S.
41, north of Lake City.
The brief yet temperamen-
tal wind event came at the
heels of a thunderstorm pass-
ing through North Florida.


6I remember the wind
started blowing r6al
heavy, and it started
getting rough.9
Connie Wilson
displaced from home after
windstorm Tuesday

Winds peaked at 50 mph, said
Jason Deese, a meteorologist
with the National Weather
Service in Jacksonville.
"This was pretty unusual
for the winds to be so strong,"
Deese said. "We have had
numerous reports of trees


. down in Gilchrist County and
the Suwannee Valley area."
Although tornado watches
were issued for parts of cen-
tral Florida Tuesday night,
Deese assured that it wasn't a
twister that forced the large
oak tree through the bedroom
ceiling of Robert and Connie
Wilson's home.
"It was a clear-cut incident
of heavy wind," Deese said.
Twister or not, Connie
Wilson, 34, didn't know what
hit her when she found her-
self covered with insulation
from the torn roof.
"I remember the wind start-
ed blowing real heavy, and it
started getting rough,"


Connie Wilson said.
"Insulation fell on me when
the roof came down. I have
taken two showers, and I am
still itching."
The oak tree, she said, fell
directly on the bed where her
husband sleeps.
The couple was in the bath-
room, relaxing from a long
day of moving into the recent-
ly purchased mobile home.
The five children, she said,
fortunately were on the oppo-
site side of the home when
the tree came through.

by a tree Tuesday night after a windstorm swept through the
area. No one was reported injured in the home.

Woman can go
on with lawsuit
jr- -


LONDON A judge
rejected an attempt to block a
lawsuit by a British journalist
who claims she was groped
by California Gov. Arnold
Schwarzenegger four years
ago and then libeled by his
aides.
Judge David Eady agreed
Wednesday with a court offi-
cial's ruling that Anna
Richardson could serve pro-
ceedings on Schwarzenegger
at the High Court in London.
He dismissed an attempt by
Schwarzenegger spokesman
Sean Walsh to stop the case
from going ahead on the
grounds that English courts
had no jurisdiction.
Richardson claims
Schwarzenegger fondled' her
breast during an interview in
London in 2000 and that his
staff subsequently damaged
her reputation as a profes-
sional interviewer by alleging
she encouraged the behavior.
Schwarzenegger's lawyers
say Richardson is not giving a
true account of events during
the interview at the
Dorchester Hotel.
When allegations emerged
during his 2003 election cam-
paign, he apologized for hav-
ing "behaved badly some-
times" toward women and
doing some things that "were
not right, which I thought
were playful."

Trial begins in
Ted Nugent suit
MUSKEGON, Mich. A
trial opened in Muskegon
County Circuit Court on Ted
Nugent's lawsuit against a
summer festival that canceled
a concert after he allegedly
made racial comments on a
Denver radio show.
Nugent filed the breach-of-
contract claim against the
Muskegon Summer
Celebration. The festival can-
celed his June 2003 concert
after he allegedly used slurs
when referring to blacks and
Asians. Nugent has denied

Former O'Jay
pleads innocent
CLEVELAND Gerald
Levert has pleaded innocent
to felony charges of assault-
ing a Cleveland police officer
and obstructing police busi-
ness.
The 38-year-old R&B
singer was indicted by a
grand jury earlier this month
on charges stemming from a
confrontation with police dur-
ing a Feb. 25 traffic stop.
Levert was arraigned
Tuesday in Cuyahoga County
Common Pleas Court.
Levert is the son of Eddie
Levert, a founding member of
The O'Jays, a longtime R&B
group. Gerald Levert became
lead singer of the trio Levert
in 1985. He began his solo
recording career in 1991.

BBQ Cook-off fires up


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

The chance of cooking bar-
becue for backyard bragging
rights is long gone espe-
cially when Lake City hosts
its annual barbecue cook-off.
During those two days of
competition, a steady stream
of smokerises from the west
side of Memorial Stadium as
cooking teams sweat, labor
and create edible master-
pieces over hot grills hoping
to win more than $1,500.
The 12th Annual Hog Wild-
Pig Crazy Barbecue Cook-
Off, sponsored by the Lake
City/Columbia County Parks
& Recreation Department,
will be held April 1-2 at
Memorial Stadium. On Friday
April 1, the event location will
be open from 11 a.m. 9 p.m.
and Saturday, it will be open
from 10 a.m. 6 p.m.
"We'll have barbecue for
sale from some of the cook
teams that are coming, local
entertainment and a carnival
coming in with some kid
events," said Heyward
Christie, program director for
the Lake City/Columbia
County Parks & Recreation
Department.
Cook-off organizers are
estimating there will be 50
teams participating in this
year's competition. The dead-
line to enter the contest is
Saturday.
"Last year we had 41 or 42
teams, so this will be the
largest one we've ever had,"


FILE PHOTO

Barbecue Cook-off at Memorial Stadium last year.


Christie said.
He said 27 teams have
already paid their entry fees,
eight or nine local teams have
said they will compete and 10-
12 teams from surrounding
areas have expressed interest
in competing.
The teams will be compet-
ing in chicken, pork ribs, pork
and brisket cooking cate-
gories. The winner of each
division will win $400.
A wing-cooking contest will
be held Friday night and the
winner will receive $100.
Cook-off organizers are
also holding an "Anything
But" contest, where contest-
ants can cook whatever they
choose.


'"They can cook anything
they want," Christie said.
'We'll have people cook veni-
son, rattlesnake, beans,
salmon, lobster, shrimp and
all kinds of dishes. It's inter-
esting to see some of the stuff
that comes out."
The grand champion for
the event will receive $1,500
and the reserve champion
will receive $750.
The contest also features a
sauce contest, where the win-
ner receives $100 and a
dessert contest, where the
winner gets $50. Trophies will
be awarded to second and
third place winners in each of
the categories.
The contest will be gov-


Lpril 1-2

erned by Florida Barbecue
Association rules, where each
entry starts with a score of 7.5
and points are added or sub-
tracted through blind judg-
ing.
The 2005 barbecue cooking
contest will also feature a
cooking contest for children
in two divisions. One division
will have youths between the
ages of 11-14 years old and
the other division is for chil-
dren 10 years old and under.
'They'll get to cook and
we'll supply the foods that
they cook," Christie said.
"They'll get to cook hamburg-
ers and chicken thighs and
they can win prize money, too.
We've been talking about this
for a little while and a couple
of people actually donated
money for it last year."
Christie said other barbe-
cue cooking contests feature
a youth cooking competition
and he thinks it will be a good
event for the Lake City cook-
off in the future.
"I think the Hog Wild-Pig
Crazy Cook-off has remained
popular because we've had
different things that people
can do," he said.
"Our main concept is the
barbecue itself, but we've
tried to add events to the bar-
becue for people to enjoy,
such as the carnival and
entertainment. W6 try to
encompass everybody in
Columbia County who wants
to participate in our program.
It's an event where you have
inclusion, not exclusion."

Improving

city water


benefits all

he City of Lake City is moving
forward with its efforts to
improve water quality. City
Council this week approved a
T$9.1 million contract that will
eventually see a new water-treatment plant
constructed in Lake City.
This is good news that the city is mov-
ing forward to have this plant constructed.
While it is the city's most expensive
project in history, it also is one of the most
warranted. Lake City is growing and while
developments quickly have sprung up out-
side the ring of city limits, many of these
areas are begging to be added to the fresh-
water lines of the city.
With more capacity and state-of-the-art
Filtering capabilities at the new water-treat-
'ment plant, the city prepares itself for the
future. If areas want to be annexed into the
-city,-the facilities and infrastructure will be
in place to handle the provision of provid-
ing freshwater. If there's another industrial
prospect that looks seriously at our area,
then as a city, we'll be ready to provide
water to the facility.
We're glad to see progress and the real-
ization of city leaders that a project of this
magnitude is necessary and worth the
public's tax dollar.
This move is good for the future of our
area.


Today is Thursday, March 24, the 83rd
day of 2005. There are 282 days left in the
,ATT.h IncT Ti- ,-i h idiu Piiuay i U bII -cinQ a


yearl. iic Jewisl o aiiudy urmi uegins dLa
sunset.
Today's Highlight in History:
On March 24, 1765, Britain enacted the
Quartering Act, requiring American
colonists to provide temporary housing to
British soldiers.
On this date:
In 1883, long-distance telephone service
was inaugurated between Chicago and New
York.
In 1905, 100 years ago, author Jules
i Verne died in Amiens, France, at the age of
77.
In 1934, President Franklin Roosevelt
signed a bill granting future independence
to the Philippines.
In 1944, in occupied Rome, the Nazis exe-
cuted more than 300 civilians in reprisal for
an attack by Italian partisans the day before
that killed 32 German soldiers.
In 1955, the Tennessee Williams play
"Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' opened on
Broadway with Barbara Bel Geddes as
Maggie, Ben Gazzara as Brick and Burl
Ives as Big Daddy.
In 1976, the president of Argentina,
Isabel Peron, was deposed by her country's
military.
In 1980, one of El Salvador's most
respected Roman Catholic Church leaders,
Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero, was
shot to death by gunmen as he celebrated
Mass in San Salvador.
In 1989, the nation's worst oil spill
occurred as the Exxon Valdez ran aground
on a reef in Alaska's Prince William Sound
and began leaking 11 million gallons of
crude.
In 1999, NATO launched airstrikes
against Yugoslavia, marking the first time
in its 50-year existence that it had ever
attacked a sovereign country.
In 1999, 39 people were killed when fire
erupted in the Mont Blanc tunnel in France
and burned for two days.

Appalled at
litterbugs
I would like to respond to
Donald Shea's letter on March
13.
I also am appalled at the lit-
ter I see on our roadways
everyday. Especially during
the Super Bowl weekend.


I saw a full bag of garbage in
the middle of State Road 47,
not to mention beer bottles,
cans, boxes, paper, etc.
thrown all over the shoulders
and median strip on 41.
I wonder what the visitors
thought as they passes
through Lake City on their
way to the Super Bowl.
Why can't signs be posted


What are your thoughts on the
Terri Schiavo case?


'That's a hard ques-
tion. I can see the view-
points for both sides and
it's hard for me to
decide."
Mary Holt, 20
Lake City


"I think they should
follow the husband's
wishes. They were mar-
ried, marriage is bind-
ing and it should be up
to the husband."
Sarah Campbell, 18
Misawa, Japan


'"They're starving her
to death and I don't agree
with that. God hasn't
taken her yet so maybe
she is supposed to be
here."
Diane Olson, 19
Jacksonville


-S


'"They should put the
feeding tube back in.
There is family that
loves her and is willing
to take care of her."
Krisler Saunders, 21
Lake City


"I think it would be bet-
ter if the parents could
just take care of her. It
shouldn't have to go to
federal court."
John Cain,
18, Lake City


'They should put the
tube back in. They
shouldn't starve her to
death."
Arica Jordan, 23

as they are in other cities,
advising litter bugs they will
be fined if they're caught lit-
tering and be enforced.
Maybe the fines would help
pay the salaries of the people
who have to clean up our road-
ways from these slobs.

Quilts find home in Fort White library


By ASHLEY CISNEROS
acisneros@lakecityreporter. com
FORT WHITE The Fort
White Branch of the
Columbia County Public
Library is the temporary
home of beautiful hand-made
quilts.
The town's quilting organi-
zation hung up the quilts in
the library on Saturday, this
year's National Quilting Day.
Debbie Cassidy, organizer
of the quilting club says the
organization is relaxed, demo-
cratic and is centered around
preserving the craft.
"We really don't have an
official name," she said. 'We
have called ourselves the Fort
White Quitters and even the
Quilting Sisters."


The group meets the last
Saturday of the month at the
Fort White Town Hall at 9
a.m.
"We were invited to hang
between nine to 12 quilts at
the Fort White Library,"
Cassidy said. 'We were happy
to be able to share our work
with the community."
She says that the group is
made up of people who enjoy
quilting and seek to keep the
art alive.
'We welcome anyone who
is interested," she said. 'We
have members of all levels of
experience."
The group like to keep a
democratic atmosphere and
has no president or leader.
They meet and discuss
ideas for new projects.


Red Lak


Occasionally, the group will
meet at different times to
accommodate members'
schedules.
'"We do several projects a
year and look for books and
Web sites for ideas," Cassidy
said. "We are addicted to the
art."
Several of the members
have numerous quilts in their
homes and give them away.
The group has met for five
years and has included a
range of members.
"We have had children on
up to members in their 80s,"
she said. "We even had a man
come for a few meetings."
The group is working on
table runners and UFOs, or
unfinished objects as they call
it.

fee by turning in petition cards
signed by at least 292 regis-
tered voters who live within
city limits by the March 11
deadline.
Still, Sikes said there is time
for people who want to run as
the qualifying deadline ends at
noon Friday.
"Once noon gets here, that's
it, no more," Sikes said.
Because there are already
more than two candidates in
.the special election, to win on
May 10 one of the candidates
must take 50 percent plus one
vote, otherwise there will be a
runoff on May 24 between the
top two vote-getters.
The winner of the special
election will fill the unexpired
term of former Mayor Ray


Kirkland, which is about three
and a half years.
Kirkland, who had been
mayor for more than eight
years, resigned on Feb. 21
early in his third term, citing
health reasons and wanting to
spend more time with his fam-
ily.
However, he and the city
have both acknowledged an
ongoing investigation being
conducted by City Attorney
Herbert Darby into undis-
closed allegations against him.
The book closing for the
special election is April 11 at 5
p.m. at the Columbia County
Supervisor of Elections Office.
City residents who are not
currently' registered voters
can sign up to vote in the elec-
tion until that date.
For more election informa-
tion, call 758-1026.

rge degree, at least for the
iort term," Campbell said.
The sinkhole's rapid growth
ter it initially opened, which
sted through the weekend,
used officials to close a por-
Dn of Pinemount Road and
Tour traffic around the area.
however, following core sam-
es taken by the Florida
department of Transportation
i Monday, officials deter-
ined the ground underneath
te roadway was still sound
iough to reopen the entire
,ad by Monday night.
Still, Campbell said while
nkhole No. 5 does not pres-
it an immediate threat,
obviouslyy we continue to
monitor (it) most closely
cause of the rate at which it
as growing last week."
At Mimi's Sink on the prop-
"ty of Red and Susie Roberts,
> named for the nickname
ven to Susie by her grand-
iildren, the sinkhole
-mained filled with water
wednesday and showed little
gns of new growth.
The home, though obvious-
uninhabitable, remained
ending along with a nearby
>okhouse.
Campbell said the home
-obably hasn't fallen in to the
irth yet, because its base-
ent is "a big stabilizing influ-


-


ence." Still, there are large
structural cracks throughout
the home and its foundation.
Around the area of the sink-
holes, the Columbia County
Sheriff's Office continued to
provide security Wednesday
as Deputy Chris Brown kept
watch for a 12-hour shift.
Campbell said the sheriff's
office plans to have 24-hour
security at the site at least
through Sunday.


For residents on well water,
a boil-water notice remained
in effect for a one-mile radius
around the sinkholes.
Mark Lander, county envi-
ronmental health director,
said, 'We have no new E. coli
hits, which is good, but we are
still finding some bacterial
issues."
Lander said the wells affect-

For an extra measure of

Wednesday and expects those
results by this afternoon.

Bracket



Busters

Madness is
upon us,
and it's the
time of the
year when many start
pulling their hair out over
the picks they made in their
office pools.
I mean, who had
Bucknell topping Kansas,
or Vermont outlasting
Syracuse in an epic first-
round game? And
" University of Wisconsin-
Milwaukee? If anyone out-
side of Dick Vitale knows a
single player on that team,
raise your hand.
(Silence, I thought so.)
Well, my brackets have
long since been busted.
Being in last place in two
pools has its privileges
though. No more worrying
or wondering about which
teams I picked in the Sweet
16 to advance. No more
checking my bracket for the
umpteenth time to see how
far I am behind the leaders.
From here on out I am on
cruise control. But that does-
n't mean I don't have an
opinion on what will follow in
the wildest tournament this
side of "The Apprentice."
Illinois vs. UW-
Milwaukee: The No. 1 team
in the country against this
year's Cinderella story. The
Illini have won 32 games, and
I think the Panthers' ride
ends here.
Arizona vs. Oklahoma
State: On paper, the best
game of the round. The
edge should go to OSU,
since the team has the
experience of a Final Four
run just a year ago.
Washington vs.
Louisville: Everyone's worst
No. 1 seed against a team
that probably deserved a
No. 1 seed. Louisville's dis-
mantling of the defending
national finalists is still fresh
in my mind, and the Cards
Look like a Final Four team.
Texas Tech vs. West
Virginia: Could Bob Knight
be making his most unlikely
NCAA venture? The
Mountaineers have played
well down the stretch, but the
Red Raiders will win thanks
to Knights' experience in
these kinds of games.
North Carolina vs.
Villanova: The Wildcats will
bow out here. UNC is just
too talented.
Wisconsin vs. N.C.
State: Another matchup no
o one saw coming. The
Badgers are a team that
likes to wear down oppo-
nents, while the 'Pack rely
heavily on the talents of one
great player Julius
Hodge. Good teams beat
star players, so Wisconsin
will advance.
Duke vs. Michigan
: State: The Dookies are
Speaking again as the tour-
nament enters its second
week, and the Spartans
should be just a speed
Sbump on Coach K's path to
": another Final Four.
U Utah vs. Kentucky:
,< Andrew Bogut and his
% unsung teammates sur-
praised Oklahoma, and they
. should overcome a
*' Kentucky team that's short
on depth and scoring.
tAs for the Final Four, I'll
'- take Illinois, Louisville,
' Duke and North Carolina,
with Louisville beating
Duke in the championship.
Of course, I could be
Wrong.

Lake City Community College player Avery Johnson takes a cut


and Luis Sanchez, and give
the Timberwolves a lead they
would never relinquish.
Jones went 2-4 on the day
with a single and a run scored.
"He's really started to pick
it up now," Clark said.
After Central Florida
scratched out a run on a hit
and an error in the sixth, Lake
City switched tactics and
played some small ball.
Mark Davis singled to lead
off the bottom of the inning and
was forced at second when
Steven Rassel reached on a
fielder's choice. Rassel stole
second and went to third on a
fly out by Matt Mahony.


Avery Johnson then reach-
ed when his .line shot skidded
under first ,baseman Ryan
Mollica's glove and Rassel
scored the insurance run.
After Hall's second home
run in the eighth, Rassel dou-
bled to left with one out. He
then moved to third on a
passed ball and scored when
Mahony bounced a ball to
third and Rassel beat the tag
at home plate.
Mike Ryan came on and fin-
ished the Patriots, pitching
three scoreless innings and
striking out one batter while
allowing two hits.

By MARIO SARMENTO

Solid pitching, timely hit-
ting and more than a touch of
power.
That was the combination
produced a second straight
conference victory for Lake
City Community College, 7-3
over Central Florida Commu-
nity College on Wednesday.
Brandon Hall went 2-4 and
clubbed two home runs to
nearly the exact same spot
just to the right of center field
and he did it from both
sides of the plate.
Raleigh Evans bounced back
from a shaky opening inning to
pitch six strong frames to get
the win. Evans allowed three
runs on seven hits and struck
out nine batters.
"Coach told me to stop
walking guys, get after it,"
Evans said after issued three
free passes and gave up two
runs on three hits in the first.
The left-hander responded by
retiring the next six batters he
' faced, and in the fourth inning
he struck out the side. He also
did not walk another batter.
The Timberwolves used
the long ball to rally in the bot-
tom of the fourth. Chris Petrie
singled to left, and Hall fol-
lowed with his first towering
shot to tie the game.
"At the plate I've been
struggling, but I've felt better
the last two games," Hall said.
In the fifth, Travis Jones
launched a two-run homer to
almost the same spot as Hall's
two blasts to score himself


Lady Tigers go to 11-0


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
Neither rain, nor snow, nor
hail, nor sleet :.. well, maybe
those things, but nothing
else has been able to stop
Columbia High's softball
team. The Lady Tigers
improved to 11-0 with a 5-0
home win' over Suwannee
High (8-5) on Wednesday.


Columbia faces a tough
test today with a 7 p.m. game
at Buchholz High.
Columbia built its lead
after three innings, then
dodged bullets late in the
game as the Bulldogs left the
bases loaded in the fourth,
fifth and sixth innings.
Jenna Payne faced the first
bases-loaded situation, but
got out of it with two strike-


outs. In the next inning,
Jamie Daniels speared a line
drive at third base to hold the
line.
Daniels relieved Payne to
start the sixth inning, but got
in her own trouble. Two
walks, around a single,
loaded the bases with one
out. Payne returned to the
TIGERS continued on page 2B

game with a pulled hamstring,
and Augustin Montanez has

Montanez might be back on
Friday, while Lopez might not

'"We still have never had our

hopefully, this will get us

big guns at home and still
overwhelmed the Tigers.
"I won't be surprised if
they win state," coach Sean

Brown strong on St. Johns River


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
The North Florida Bassmasters held
its monthly bass tournament at Palatka
on the St. Johns River on Saturday.
On a day when half of the field came
in without a fish, William Brown won
the tournament with 14.32 pounds. His
first fish weighed 7.76 pounds and took
big fish honors.
Richard Skipper, February's winner,
tied with January winner Joey Wood for
second place. Both brought in 9.32
pounds. The tiebreaker went to Skipper,
as he had more fish on his stringer.
Brown is always one of the favorites
when the tournament is on the St. Johns
River.
"I love to fish over there, but I don't
always do well," Brown said. "I've been
fishing there about eight years, mostly
from Green Cove Springs to Lake
George."
The North Florida Bassmasters
report noted the tournament was held
the first day after a cold front and
Brown took advantage.
"The fish were lethargic and real slow
to bite," Brown said. "I realized they
were holding in the back of the canals.
The first fish I caught was bigger than I
thought it was."
Brown said he was using a Bass
Assassin worm, but would not reveal
the color.
Brown and son, Justin, won the first
River City Tournament on the St. Johns
River both this year and last. He gave a
few tips.
"It is different fishing because it is
tidal waters," Brown said. "They are not
biting on high tide or low tide. You have
to let the water get moving. It is kind of
seasonal and you have to follow the
fish."
North Florida Bassmasters' April
tournament is at Fanning Spring on the
Suwannee River. The club's Web site is
northfloridabassmasters. com.

Don't go bear-imnting with a switch-


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
As most anglers know, or
have learned the hard way,
fishing rods are often under-
estimated. Many anglers have
learned by either breaking
a rod or getting a poor hook-
set that the saying, "You
don't go bear hunting with a
switch" applies to fishing as
well as hunting.
Over the years fishing rods
have been made from materi-
als such as bamboo poles,
steel, fiberglass and graphite.
However, now that technol-
ogy has been added to the
fishing game, rod manufactur-
ers have added materials such
as titanium, kevlar and boron
to rods to add strength and
sensitivity all in the name of
catching fish.
Fiberglass rods, often used
in crankbait, spinnerbait, and
some topwater fishing applica-
tions, offers anglers a rod that
is "forgiving" and allows the
fish to take the bait in its
mouth and turn. It has a slow-
er reaction time than graphite


and will give, when bass make
final runs near the boat.
Several manufacturers are
offering boron in rods as a
replacement for the fiberglass
rods used for crankbait fishing.
The boron rods aren't as heavy
as the fiberglass rods, but still
provide the "forgiving nature"
needed for crankbait fishing.
Graphite rods, often used
for baits that are fished with
touch like jigs and worms, tra-
ditionally offer more sensitivi-
ty than fiberglass rods.
Anglers can almost tell instan-
taneously when a fish has
taken their bait because of
graphite's sensitivity.
Titanium rods, often the
"top-shelf' rods for many com-
panies, provides anglers with
a sensitivity level that is rarely
felt with fishing rods when
anglers use a variety of
"touch" lures. However, the
rods normally cost more than
graphite rods.
Kevlar rods, a new entry to
fishing rods, is lightweight,
flexible and reported to be at
least five times stronger than
steel and able to offer anglers


unmatched sensitivity.
Yet, with rods made from
such a large variety of materi-
als, anglers need to be careful
to pick rods that have the
strength that's needed for par-
ticular applications. All rods
don't act or perform the same
in all situations.
Fast-tipped rods, rods that
have a more parabolic action
and bend easier from the tip,
are great for crankbait fishing
in allowing for longer casts,
but don't normally offer
anglers enough power for
hooksets when worm fishing.
Medium heavy to heavy
action rods, with slower tips,
offer worm fishermen lots of
"backbone" to drive the hook
home when fishing plastic
lures. But since the rods are
so stiff, casting distance is
often sacrificed.
As the rod market contin-
ues to change, anglers must
be cautious in choosing their
rods, realize and remember
that all rods are not created
equally, nor are they all made
for fishing every lure in the
tacklebox.

Construction progressing on Fort White bike trail


By ASHLEY CISNEROS
acisneros@lakecityreporter.comrn
FORT WHITE Construction is pro-
gressing on a bike path connecting
Ichetucknee Springs State Park to
O'Leno State Park, said Public Works
Director Edmund Hudson.
He worked on clearing a section of the
trail of branches and debris in Fort White


Wednesday.
"We had a company come and cut
down a few trees and old tree stumps
so I am clearing them for paving," he
said.
The section being cleared is located
off Ellis Street.
After the area is cleared, it will be cov-
ered with limerock and a black top.
The project is expected to be complet-


ed sometime this year.
Recently the media in the town's three
water filters was changed out.
The Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection is expected to test the
water at the end of the month for
impurities.
"We are anticipating that the water's
quality will be improved since the last
test," Hudson said.
