A machine gun-toting guard

the Lake City National Guard
Armory on Tuesday.
Though it was a strange
scene locally, it was in perfect
harmony with what was tak-

closed doors.
Stoic-faced troops in their
green, battle-dress uniforms
were headed to various
makeshift stations making
final preparations for 18
months abroad as part of their
military duty.
Members of the Florida
National Guard's 153rd
Engineer Company, based in
Lake City, received orders to
deploy in Afghanistan as part
of the war on terrorism and
spent Monday and Tuesday
getting prepared. The 153rd
Engineer Company has 130
troops, but only 85-90 are
scheduled to be deployed.
First Lt. James Mitchell,
153rd Engineer Company
commander, said the troops
were taking part in Soldier
Readiness Processing, where
their dental and medical
records were checked and
their legal and financial paper-

through a wide range of
emotions as they prepared

Spc. Ronnie Howard, 26,
of Lake City had a slight


cold, but said he was still
looking forward to the
opportunity to serve his
country as part of the
deployment.
"This is just something
we've got to do," he said. "I

Community's send-off
Ful -l. As


for 153rd set for


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

The grass-roots effort to
organize a send-off for local
guardsmen heading to
Afghanistan will reach its cli-
max Friday with a barbecue
dinner for the troops.
Local elected officials, digni-
taries and invited guests will
volunteer as servers to feed
the troops and their families at
the 4 p.m. barbecue dinner,
which will be held at the Lake
City Armory.
Columbia County
Commissioner Ron Williams,
who along with Commissioner
Dewey Weaver, co-chaired the
event Event organizers also
included Lt. Col. Dennis
Roberts, JAG officer, Lake City
Reporter Publisher Michael
Leonard and Editor Todd
Wilson.
'The menu will be barbe-
cue ribs and chicken, string-
beans, rice, potatoes, rolls
and dessert," Williams said.
"Between the troops, their
family members and invited
guests, we expect to feed
between 450-500 people. The
community has been real
great in stepping forward -
especially the local business
people. What they didn't
donate, they gave it at their
costs and we've had a lot of
contributions from just citi-
zens of Columbia County. I
think it's very important that
the 153rd and their families
will be supported the whole
while they are deployed."
"From what I understand
and have seen, the prepara-
tions are well under way, and
it's getting a lot of support


JUSTIN LANG/Lake City Reporter
Columbia County Senior Services members Gloria Bolton
(from left), Phyllis Medeiros and Bernice Brown all of Lake
City help create yellow ribbons Tuesday in honor of the
National Guard's local 153rd Engineering Company, which is
scheduled for deployment to Afghanistan. Members of CARC
also worked to create the ribbons Tuesday after learning the
technique from local florists such as Judy Stinson.


from the community, and the
soldiers and their families will
have a nice event to remem-
ber," Roberts said.
Officials are encouraging
residents to put yellow rib-
bons on trees in their yards in
honor of the guardsmen while
they are away. Harvey
Campbell, with the tourist
development council, is work-
ing on the ribbon-making
campaign, and the ribbons
will be ready Friday.
The ribbons can be picked
up at the Lake City Reporter
office, Chamber of
Commerce office and Board
of Commissioner's Office in
the Columbia County
Courthouse Annex.
Inserts of yellow ribbons


will also be included in a
weekend issue of the Lake
City Reporter.
"In Friday's newspaper we
will have a large, yellow rib-
bon on the back of a newspa-
per page that people through-
out our coverage area can
paste in their store and home
windows in a show of support
for the 153rd," Leonard said.
"We hope everybody will
remember these brave men
and women as they prepare to
go to Afghanistan to serve our
country."
First Lt. James Mitchell,
153rd Engineer Company
commander, said the celebra-
tion will lift the troops' spirits
as they prepare for their
deployment.


*iday

'"We're already motivated to
serve our country that's
what we want to do," Mitchell
said. "It helps us to know that
the community stands behind
us. So, it's amazing that they
will do this for us. I know that
they want to do it, but we get
a lot of satisfaction out of it
also."
In addition to the ribbons,
officials also plan to provide
phone cards for the troops.
"The phone card campaign
is going great," Williams said.
"We are probably going to
end up with over $7,000 of
overseas phone cards -
that's our goal," Williams
said. "Anyone that wants to
donate can do so by making
their checks out to the
Columbia County Board of
Commissioners' send-off
campaign."
The barbecue luncheon will
also feature a brief ceremony
with patriotic music and local
speakers.
Judge Julian Collins will be
master of ceremonies, and
John Norris will be the
event's keynote speaker.
Norris is scheduled to give a
5-10 minute inspirational
speech.
"We want to remember
these soldiers while they're
gone and remember their
families," Roberts said.
'We want to keep these sol-
diers in our thoughts, not just
now, but during this whole
period of time.and give them a
great return, just like the
great send-off."
Williams said invitations
were sent to all elected offi-
cials and dignitaries in the
community.

Sinkhole forms north

of Alachua exit on 1-75


Compiled from staff reports
ALACHUA A sinkhole
approximately 2-3 feet in
diameter has formed within
the right lane of southbound
Interstate 75 just north of the
Alachua.exit. The Florida
Department of
Transportation Pavement
Specialists' initial determina-
tions estimate the sinkhole to
be approximately 15-20 feet
in depth.
The sinkhole was initially
discovered by FDOT on
Monday night and appeared
to only be a minor depres-
sion in the pavement. A
passing motorist reported
the sinkhole as increasing in
depth at approximately 9:45
am. Tuesday.
FDOT Pavement
Specialists, and the Florida
Highway Patrol immediately
responded to the scene.
After their initial evaluation
of the sinkhole warranted
further inspection, the right


lane of southbound 1-75 was
closed and southbound traf-
fic was transitioned into the
center and left lane.
FDOT crews are currently
conducting boring operations
to further evaluate the size
and extent of the sinkhole.
The right lane of 1-75 will be
closed for at least three-days
while a grout mixture is
pumped into the sinkhole.
Once FDOT Specialists
determine the sinkhole is
stable and the pavement is
restored, the outside lane of
1-75 will be re-opened.
FDOT and the Florida
Highway Patrol will continue
to monitor the area for fur-
ther depressions in the road-
way.
The Florida Highway
Patrol is asking motorist to
use caution when traveling
through this area. Expect
some traffic congestion and
slowed traffic at peak travel
periods.

Columbia County resi-
dents who own at least 10
acres could be eligible for
funding to help plant pine
trees on their property.
The Florida Division of
Forestry will be holding sign-
up from Monday through
June 13 for the Forest Land
Enhancement Program.
County Forester Jon
Handrick said this is only the
third sign-up the Division of
Forestry has held for the pro-
gram, which is intended to
encourage more forest lands
in the state.
He said the forest land cre-
ated can have many uses
including wildlife habitat,


timber production, soil and
water quality protection and
providing new recreation
opportunities.
The program, which was
created by the 2002 Farm
Bill, helps provide funding
assistance of up to $10,000
for private, non-industrial for-
est landowners who are eligi-
ble.
To qualify for the funding,
the land must be between 10
and 10,000 acres and have a
multiple-resource practice
plan in place.
Handrick said that such a
plan outlines the manage-
ment that needs to be done
for the land generally over
the next five years, such as
what the land features are,
prescribed burns, mowing


and "whatever needs to be
done."
While having the plan is a
requirement to receive the
funding, he said he and the
Division of Forestry can help
the landowner develop the
plan.
Once a landowner is
approved, Handrick said they
pay the cost to get the pine
trees planted, then submit
the bills to the Division of
Forestry.
"We would basically cut
them a check for up to 75
percent of the cost,"
Handrick said.
While the Division of
Forestry doesn't receive any
ownership interest in the
land in return, he said the
landowner does sign a 10-


year contract that states they
will maintain the trees for 10
years.
Most of the time, Handrick
said those who seek the
funding are people who have
open pasture who want to fill
it with trees.
According to the Division
of Forestry, nearly half of the
state's 14 million acres of for-
est land are owned by private
non-industrial forest
landowners.
To apply for the program
people can get applications
from the local Division of
Forestry office off U.S. 90
East.
For further details they
can also call Handrick at 758-
5713 or visit www.fl-dofcom
on the Internet.

Today is Wednesday, March 30, the 89th
day of 2005. There are 276 days left in the
year.
Today's Highlight in History:
On March 30, 1981, President Reagan
was shot and seriously injured outside a
Washington, D.C., hotel by. John W.
Hinckley Jr. Also wounded were White
House press secretary James Brady, a
Secret Service agent and a District of
Columbia police officer.
On this date:
In 1822, Florida became a United States
territory.
In 1842, Dr. Crawford W. Long of
Jefferson, Ga., first used ether as an anes-
thetic during a minor operation.
In 1867, U.S. Secretary of State William
H. Seward reached agreement with Russia
to purchase the territory of Alaska for $7.2
million, a deal roundly ridiculed as
"Seward's Folly."
In 1870, the 15th amendment to the
Constitution, giving black men the right to
vote, was declared in effect.
In 1870, Texas was readmitted to the
Union.


Controlling
growth
I read the article in The
Reporter recently regarding,
"Expanding Boundaries."
This meeting you referred
-to was to expand the
Designated Urban
Development Area of the
county. According to the
paper, this group included
local developers Charlie
Sparks and Daniel Crapps,
who want to change the coun-
ty's current land use that was
adopted in 1987 after it


became a requirement from
the state.
It was intended to encour-
age controlled growth and
limit urban sprawl.
This plan was developed
for a reason and I feel that it
is more important today than
it was in 1987.
I recently saw a six panel
discussion of environmental
experts on public television
and they stated that sewage
seepage into our under-
ground water supply is cur-
rently a problem and will
probably get worse in some
areas.


Our environment is of vital
importance to all of our citi-
zens and our county commis-
sioners need to study these
issues very carefully and act
accordingly.
Another article in the
Reporter, "What are we striv-
ing for as a natural county," is
right on the mark.
Visit all the "Growth" in
south Florida and then you
will understand why they are
moving to Columbia County.

MURDER
Continued from page 1A
Laney were detained and
questioned by Suwannee
County detectives. The car, a
Chevrolet Camaro, was
impounded.
After questioning, Hall was
charged with accessory to
murder after the fact. Laney
was released.
All three were booked into


the Columbia County
Detention Center without
bond. Suwannee County Chief
Deputy Ron Colvin said they
were transported Tuesday to
Suwannee County Jail.
Thomas was charged with
homicide and is being held in
jail with no bond. Radford was
charged with accessory to
homicide and is being held on
a $500,000 bond. Hall was
charged with accessory after
the fact and is also in jail under


a $500,000 bond.
"I am glad the suspects
were taken into custody with-
out incident," said Sheriff Bill
Gootee in a released state-
ment.
"This could have been a
very dangerous situation. I am
extremely proud of the offi-
cers who were attentive to
their duties and as a result, a
murder suspect was arrested.
This is proof that there is no
routine traffic stop."

DEVELOPMENT
Continued from page LA

state department wanted it to
consider when developing
unincorporated areas.
He said that at least part of
Friday's meeting will likely
entail going over those stan-
dards one by one and how the
county intends to address
them.
However, he said he was not
expected the DCAto make any
agreement Friday about
expanding the county's DUDA
west of Lake City where the
environmental impact is
believed to be less severe.
"I don't think they will be
willing to do that after Friday,"


Williams said. "Don't be sur-
prised if there isn't some more
of these (meetings) before we
get to some meeting of the
minds."
Still, he said, "At least we are
talking. Before we weren't
even talking and that's not
good."
Williams said he believes
the county has stated its posi-
tion clearly to the DCA. He
said the county wants and
needs more land for develop-
ment, but also wants to do it
safely and protect the area's
natural resources.
He said he is optimistic the
county and DCA can reach
some agreement that all par-
ties are comfortable with and
can benefit from.


The county's current land
use plan and the DUDA were
adopted in 1987 after it became
a requirement by state law.
Intended to encourage con-
trolled growth and limit urban
sprawl, the county's plan and
its DUDA have not changed
since.
Since January 2004, the
Columbia County Commission
has petitioned the DCA three
times to allow the county to
amend its land use plan and
expand the DUDA by three
miles in every direction.
However, the county and
developers mainly want it
extended south and west of
Lake City where demand for
residential property has been
the highest.

next of kin paperwork in case
of emergency.
Mitchell said he expected
the SRP to take two days.
"It's the first time we're
going overseas," he said. "We
deploy every year for hurri-
canes and wildfires, but when
we do that, we're employed by
the state, this time we're going
to be employed by the federal
government.
"I'm excited about being
deployed, I think it's going to
be the opportunity of a life-
time," Mitchell continued. "I
know it's dangerous over
there, but I think the situation
is not nearly as bad as other


places in the world and this
gives us the opportunity to
serve our country. We all
joined for various reasons, but
we all want to serve our coun-
try."
Though the guardsmen are
going to Afghanistan, they will
spend three months in
Mississippi training before
spending at least a year in
Afghanistan.
"The men are also excited,"
Mitchell said. "You still have a
few soldiers that have their
reservations, but I've been
assuring them we'll do just
fine over there. We're well
trained and in my opinion we
have the best army in the
world."
While in Afghanistan, the


local brigade's mission will be
to teach the Afghani army sol-
diering and leadership tech-
niques.
Mitchell said he expects the
local troops to do an outstand-
ing job on their mission
abroad.
"I expect them to perform
very well," he said. "We've
been training for this mission
for the past year. Normally we
train on engineering skills, but
we've trained on field tactics
and infantry skills. Over the
past few months the men have
really pulled together to
become a cohesive unit."
The guardsmen are sched-
uled to leave Lake City
Monday morning.

seas as part of the deploy-
ment, he said he is focusing
on the positive aspects of his
mission in Afghanistan.
"It's a different environ-
ment," he said. "It's a learning
experience, and I'll be out of
the country for the first time,"
he said. '"This is just an expe-
rience that I think everybody
should take."
Fellow Lake City guards-
men Kenneth Burnette was
low-key in his preparation for
the pending deployment.
"I thought we would be
deployed eventually it had
to come sooner or later," he
said. "Everybody else has
been deployed, so why not
us?"
Burnette, 26, said his fami-
ly understood the deploy-
ment, and they've spent time
together leading up to the
departure date.
"I will miss my social life
and hanging with buddies,"
he said.
Sgt. Roy Baker Jr., unlike
many of the soldiers in the
unit, has previous overseas
experience from serving on


active duty in the military, but
this was his first deployment.
"I'm a little nervous, but I'm
looking forward to it. It's a
new experience," he said.
"You get to go to a different
country and learn new
things."
Baker, 47, wasn't married
when he went through
Soldier Readiness Processing
years before. He said this was
a new experience for him
because he is leaving his wife
and leaving work.
"My family is handling it
pretty much OK," he said.
"My wife is not crazy about
the idea, but we're looking
forward to it boosting my
income and it's going to help
out a lot. We're not looking
forward to being separated
for such a long time."
Baker said he expected the
unit to be deployed, but not so
soon even though he knew
it was always a possibility.
"It's just something you
have to live with," he said.
"It's going to be pretty emo-
tional leaving especially for
families, but I think it's going
to be pretty emotional for
some of the soldiers. We've
got a lot of young soldiers that


have not been that far away
from home before. For these
other young soldiers, I think
it's going to hit them pretty
hard."
Though the majority of the
troops completing the deploy-
ment paperwork was men,
several of their wives were
also at the armory, spending
time with their husbands
before they leave.
Cheryl Denise Corn of
Gainesville was one of many
women at the armory
Tuesday.
"I'm proud of my husband,"
she said. "I'm proud that he is
supportive of his country and

She said the effects of the
deployment news was mini-
mal for their family because
they've been preparing for his
deployment for weeks by tak-

"Missing him is going to

CHS falls to Trinity Catholic


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia High's baseball team
fell too far behind too fast and lost
to Trinity Catholic School 16-6 in
the second round of the Big Sun
Challenge in Ocala on Tuesday.
"We should have been out of it
with one run in the first inning and
we ended up giving up 10," coach
Andy Bennett said. '"We battled
back to make it a game."
The Tigers scored four runs in
the second inning and added sin-
gle runs in the third and fourth


innings, but still couldn't escape
the mercy rule.
The Knights were generous in
the second inning.
Chris Schneiders and Corey
Burk were hit, then there were
consecutive walks to Josh Boris,
Aaron Randolph and Seth Carter.
Eric Brooks brought home two
more runs with a double, one of
his three hits in the game.
Schneiders singled and scored
on an error in the third inning.
Austin Peters reached on a field-
er's choice and scored on a passed
ball in the fourth inning.


Starter Peters was greeted by a
lead-off home run, but an error on a
double play ball opened the flood
gates and he never made it out of the
first inning. Tyler Nash, Ted Fuller
and Danny Genung also pitched.
"Fuller did the best job of all the
pitchers," Bennett said. "We were
not ahead of the batters all game.
We had walks (six) and hit batters
(four) and did not make the rou-
tine plays. Combine all that and
you have 16 runs."
Columbia (5-4) plays Suwannee
High at 1 p.m. today in the final
day of pool play.

Lettuce


have a salad


By SUSAN SLOAN
Special to the Reporter
For many of us, a salad
quickly brings to mind diet-
ing, and dieting brings to
mind ... yuck. But this doesn't
have to be. While a dry let-
tuce salad might be good for
the waistline, it does nothing
for the taste buds. Maybe its
time to look at salads in a dif-
ferent light.
Lettuce may not be widely
grown commercially in the
North Central Florida area,
but overall, Florida and
Arizona are the second
largest lettuce producers in
the country. According to the
Florida Department of
Agriculture, Alachua, Indian
River and Palm Beach coun-
ties are the primary lettuce
producing counties with a
growing season from
November to May. Locally,
now is the time to plant for a
spring crop.
Days to harvest depend on
variety and can range from as
short as 40 days to as long as
90.
Look for heat tolerant,
short growing time varieties.
The University of Florida
Extension Service can pro-
vide a list of Florida friendly
varieties to look for. Head, leaf
and romaine lettuce can be
grown, as well as some of the
more exotic salad greens
such as arugula and escarole.
For many, lettuce is that
round compact head known
as iceberg. But why be bor-
ing? Add some variety to
salad and, see what a differ-
ence it makes. But what
exactly is arugula or escarole?
When it comes to lettuce and
salad greens, the darker in
color the greater the nutri-
ents, and the younger the
more tender. The darker
green lettuces and salad
greens, such as spinach,
arugula, mustard greens and
watercress, as well as red


COURTESY PHOTO
For the very adventurous, there is always the addition of edible flowers to salads as can be
seen in this orange, pecan and Swiss cheese with Lime Vinaigrette.


."greens" such as red cabbage,
kale and radicchio contain
more beta-carotene; and all
salad lettuces and greens are
high in Vitamin A, folate
(important for pregnant
women), and lutein (good for
your eye health and strong
bones and teeth).
The following summary
will help you incorporate
some of the wonderful vari-
eties into your salad:
; Bibb Lettuce:- -A small
head lettuce with a sweet
taste.
Boston Lettuce: A loose
head lettuce with a subtle but-
tery taste.
Chinese Cabbage:
Although any cabbage is a
good addition to a salad,
Chinese cabbage has long,
crinkly leaves and a delicate
flavor.


Frisee: Often found in
bagged "spring salad mixes,"
its pale "frizzy" leaves have a
mildly bitter taste.
Arugula/Rocket Lettuce:
A dark green salad green with
a peppery taste. The smaller
leaves have a more subtle
taste.
Loose Leaf Red or Green
Lettuce: A more tender let-
tuce, it is best used promptly.
Romaine: Now almost as
-commonly used as', iceberg,-.
Romaine has a long shelf life
compared to other leaf let-
tuces. It has a crisp, nutty fla-
vor.
Radicchio: Its wine-col-
ored leaves make a colorful,
flavorful addition to a salad.
Watercress: Famous for the
"watercress sandwich" of the
past, watercress has tiny
round leaves with a spicy, pep-


pery taste.
With all the wonderful, sub-
tle flavors and textures of
salad greens, it's almost a
shame to drown them in a
heavy, oily salad dressing. To
allow the flavors to come
through, a simple vinaigrette
might be the right choice.
Using either a homemade or
purchased flavored-vinegar,
and the addition of good qual-
ity oil, vinigrettes are easy to.:
make .and ,the ,combinations.
are unlimited.
For making salad dressing,
use a good quality olive oil, or
for a different taste, grapeseed,
walnut, hazelnut and almond
oil are also good choices. With
nut oils, the flavor of the oil
tends to dominate, so choose a
fruity vinegar. Grapeseed oil
has a very light taste and


works well with bolder flavors
such as mustard, garlic or wine
vinegars. And fruity olive oil
combines well with balsamic
or champagne vinegars.
A lettuce salad is really all
about the combination of fla-
vors the greens, the dressing
and the accompaniments. For
four hearty servings, the fol-
lowing is a good rule of thumb
for proportions: Five cups of
base greens such as romaine,
iceberg, and/or red or green
leaf lettuce and one cup of the
more flavorful greens such as
arugula, radicchio or spinach.
Or for a less intense flavor,
use one cup of the subtler bibb,
Boston or Chinese cabbage.
To this, add your favorite com-
bination of fruits, nuts and/or
cheeses and a suitable vinai-
grette and your lettuce salad is
complete. For some suggested
accompaniment/dressing
combinations, try:

Apples, walnuts and
cheddar cheese with
Honey Cider Vinaigrette

Combine:
4 tablespoons cider vinegar
4 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 cup walnut oil
Pinch of nutmeg,
Salt and pepper to taste
Toss salad greens with vinai-
grette and top with sliced
apples, chopped walnuts and
shredded cheddar cheese.

Cherry tomatoes and
mozzarella with Tom* ot
Vinaigrette

In a blender, puree:
1 small, peeled, chopped
tomato
1 small chopped shallot
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine
vinegar


1 tablespoon balsamic vine-
gar
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon chopped fresh
oregano leaves
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
(with seeds)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon coarsely
ground black pepper
Makes 1 cup and can be
stored in the refrigerator for up
to two days. Arrange small
cherry tomatoes and sliced,
fresh mozzarella cheese over
greens. Drizzle vinaigrette
over salad. (Note: Arugula is
delicious paired with tomatoes
and mozzarella cheese)

Oranges, pecans and
Swiss cheese with Lime
Vinaigrette

Combine:
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons red wine
vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1 cup mild olive or grape-
seed oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Toss greens with vinai-
grette and top with orange
sections, pecan halves and
thin strips of Swiss cheese.
And finally, for the very
adventurous, there is always
the addition of edible flow-
ers. Although it may seem
strange to some, flowers
-have been added to ,food for
centuries. Na,rtibrimy have
a peppery taste, carnations
are cinnamon, violets and
rose petals are sweet, and
pansies are basically flavor-
less, but a beautiful addition
to a salad for their colors.
Toss them on the salad or
use as a garnish. But a word of
caution, if you are not sure of
what the flower is, don't use it
... some flowers are poisonous.
