Rehabilitating Alligator Lake


Water quality

regarded as

'fair' at best
By ROB MATTSON
Special to the Reporter
Alligator Lake is the head-
waters of an ancient river, now
dry, which would have formed
a much larger and different
version of the Ichetucknee
River.
Topographic maps show a
relict river channel running
north from the Ichetucknee
Springs system up to Alligator
Lake.
Geologists call this ancient
river bed the "Ichetucknee
Trace." Major branches of this
ancient river are Cannon
Creek, Clay Hole Creek, and
Rose Creek, all of which now
drain to sinkholes.
Hydrogeologic investigations
conducted over the past sever-
al years have shown that these
sinks drain to underground
conduits, which run under-
neath the Ichetucknee Trace
and ultimately connect to
some of the headsprings of
today's Ichetucknee River.
Two major activities have
affected Alligator Lake over
the years loss of habitat
and water pollution. In the late
1950s/early 1960s, extensive
areas of the eastern shore of
the lake were diked and
drained for agriculture by pri-
vate landowners. Back then,
this was thought to be the
best use of these lands, which
were regarded as unproduc-
tive "wastelands."
Also during this time and
continuing into the present,
the little village of Alligator
Town grew into the sizable
town of Lake City. During
much of this growth,
"stormwater management"
meant getting rid of water
runoff in the quickest way
possible, which usually meant
piping stormdrains to
Alligator Lake. The city's
ALLIGATOR

JOE HINKLE/Florida Department of Environmental Protection
A sinkhole in the bottom of Alligator Lake in Lake City frequently opens wide enough to
drain a large portion of the lake. The lake is the headwaters of the Ichetucknee
Springs River system.

Day of education, appreciation set for

this weekend at Ichetucknee Springs


By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter. corn
Ichetucknee is about 14
miles from Lake City, but the
river is connected to the area
through nine underground
springs that comprise the
Ichetucknee Springs Basin.
Jim Stevenson, coordina-
tor of the Ichetucknee
Springs Basin Working
Group, is coordinating an
event that aims to make peo-
ple aware of the connection,
which is not just environ-
mental.
"I feel we need to renew
the bond and strengthen the
bond between residents of
Lake City and Ichetucknee,
where we've been holding
family picnics and reunions
and church socials and bap-
tisms for decades,"
Stevenson said.
The first Lake City
Appreciation Day at
Ichetucknee Springs State
Park will take place from 9
a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The
event will host expert talks
and tours of the park, as well


Rec center



loses $10K



in funding


United Way money lost
because of a deadline
error, officials say.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter. com
The Annie Mattox
Recreation Center will lose
$10,000 in United Way fund-
ing until next year because of
a deadline error.
The Annie Mattox
Recreation Center, on East
Martin Luther King Jr.
Boulevard, is a private center
run by its board of directors.
The recreation center has a
park and provides after school
recreational activities to many
children who live in the neigh-
borhood. The facility has been
open since 1962.
Monday afternoon the
Annie Mattox Recreation


Center Board of Directors,
Friends of Annie Mattox Park
and concerned community
members met with United
Way officials and discussed
the loss of funding.
According to United Way
reports, $10,000 in funding
has been cut because the cen-
ter's funding application dead-
lines were not met. Reports
state the application was due
Jan. 15, but United Way offi-
cials didn't receive it until Jan.
31.
The United Way and the
Annie Mattox Recreation
Center has a 10-year relation-
ship and Rita Dopp, United
Way of Suwannee Valley exec-
utive director, said to her
knowledge, the Annie Mattox
Recreation Center has never

as displays and exhibits
about the Ichetucknee.
Admission is free, and
Stevenson said the timing is
ideal for Lake City residents
to enjoy the park.
"It's the time of year when
there are no tubers or


tourists," Stevenson said.
The park welcomes tubing
from Memorial Day week-
end in May to Labor Day in
September.

Litter




plagues




our area


problem in Columbia County.
Trash is scattered in many
places along roadsides and in
secret dumping areas that soon
overflow and become obvious public eye-
sores.
We continually crow about the impor-
tance of protecting the environment and
that crusade begins with reminding our
friends and neighbors to pick up after
themselves.
There are plenty of opportunities to do
the right thing and help clean up the local
environment. There's plenty of discarded
trash to go around and keep us all busy for
many days ahead.
People who enjoy and respect the out-
doors are willing to pick up after them-
selves or at least make sure they don't
allow litter to touch the ground in the first
place.
People who love the outdoors pick up
trash that others left behind. Now that's a
commitment.
The bottom line is this: Pollution and
trash in our environment begins with all of
us. It also stops with all of us.
Let's all work at it together.



Today is Wednesday, April 6, the 96th day
of 2005. There are 269 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:

On. April 6, 1909, explorers Robert E.
Peary and Matthew A. Henson became the
first men to reach the North Pole. (The
claim, disputed by skeptics, was upheld in
1989 by the Navigation Foundation.)

On this date:

In 1830, the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-Day Saints was organized by Joseph
Smith in Fayette, N.Y.
In 1862, the Civil War Battle of Shiloh
began in Tennessee.
In 1896, the first modern Olympic games
formally opened in Athens, Greece.
In 1917, Congress approved a declaration
of war against Germany.
In 1945, during World War II, the
Japanese warship "Yamato" and nine other
vessels sailed on a suicide mission to attack
the U.S. fleet off Okinawa; the fleet was
intercepted the next day.
In 1965, the United States launched the
"Early Bird" communications satellite.
In 1971, Russian-born composer Igor
Stravinsky died in New York City.
In 1985, William J. Schroeder became the
first artificial heart recipient to be dis-
charged from the hospital as he moved into
an apartment in Louisville, Ky.
In 1992, science-fiction author Isaac

Everything is greener without litter


By Ronn Ginn
Special to the Reporter
Twelve years ago about this time,
just as the river valleys and moun-
tain ridges were beginning to turn
a bright spring green, a blistering
and sudden snowstorm hit
Appalachia.
It swept through hard, fast and heavy. The
Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smoky Mountain
National Park and several interstate highway
sections were blocked. People were stranded,
schools and offices were closed, families were
snowbound in their homes.
We breathed a heavy sigh when the white
was gone and the green came back. Some peo-
ple in this part of the country still believe it was
Mother Nature's way of reminding us who is in
control.
Those who didn't have to function in the
storm looked at it differently.
They saw a blanket of black and white beau-
ty that softened the river valleys and mountain
ridges, and soothed the man-made harshness
of buildings, signs and roadways throughout
the countryside.
When the storm moved on and the highways
became busy again, our own careless neglect
became visible once more. Neglect, that is, and
specifically litter along the road rights-of-way.
Litter is plastic, aluminum, drywall, burger
bags, boxes, diapers, rags, syringes, car parts,
cigarette butts, and everything except leaves.
It isn't biodegradable. It is litter, pure and sim-
ple.
An uncaring toss of leftovers out the window
is an invasion of public property and could
command a fine of up to $1,000 in every state.
The careless toss, however, accounts for about
half of our roadway litter. The other half comes
from unsecured cargo of open vehicles, caus-
ing dangerous driving conditions. The fine is
still up to $1,000. Some states will add commu-
nity-service hours to the fine.


Litter control is very simple if you care. Use
the burger bag for other waste in your vehicle
and put it in a container at a rest area. While
you are stretching from the drive, check your
straps to see that your cargo is secure.'
Demonstrate common courtesy to your fellow
travelers by preventing litter, and make our
roadways much safer.
Springtime is a good time for all caring per-
sons to bend over and pick up. Get a plastic
grocery bag and go to the sides of the road
near your property. Help your neighbor. Make
it a neighborhood effort. All it takes is a bag
and a heart of pride. Hold it up when it's full.
Be proud. You care.
Now put it in a container. Do it again soon.
Let's keep our neighborhoods clean so you can
all see the green.
Springtime is also the time when most
states, and all states in Appalachia, have an
organized litter sweep along their roadways.
They encourage local governments and com-
munities, civic and professional groups, busi-
nesses, churches, families and individuals to
participate in an organized, statewide roadside
cleanup program under the direction of the
state's department of transportation.
These programs help to increase awareness
of the need for cleaner roadways; they empha-
size the importance of not littering; they
encourage the recycling of solid wastes.
Make that phone call. Find out when yours
is. Grab your neighbor by the hand and go. Be
proud. You care.
A roadway is nothing more than a borrowed
path through nature's landscape. Straight,
winding, wide or narrow, the lease can be up at
any time. Don't mess with Mother Nature. If
she wants it, she'll take it. Or at least stop you
from using it for a while.
Like 12 years ago.

Why the
fascination?

In retrospect, why does the
sad death of a middle-aged
woman so intrigue us?
In the Terri Schiavo case,
the behavior of the "husband"
comes into question.
Why wouldn't Michael
Schiavo hand over the body to
her loving parents?
It is quite puzzling ...

trunk and left my purse in the
cart in the parking lot. When I
arrived at my next stop I real-
ized my purse was gone.
Frantically, I drove back to
the parking lot to find it was
not there. Someone had
turned it in to the customer
service and I was overjoyed.
I do not know who they
were and I want to say 'Thank
you so much and God bless
you" whomever and wherever
you are.

I have heard of elderly
ladies having their purses
snatched and being mugged
in parking lots in our commu-
nity in times past.
I would like to tell everyone
there are honest and kind citi-
zens here in Lake City.
On March 25, I went shop-
ping at Wal-Mart. It was rain-
ing when I came out. While
holding my umbrella over me,
I put my purchases in the


It's not murder, it is not sui-
cide, it is called death. That's
right, it's called death. A natu-
ral ending to all life here on
earth. Terri Schiavo had her
wishes upheld. She lived in a
country that gave her free-
dom of choice and she made
that choice. One recent letter
writer (Ms. Davis) tried to
compare Terri's case to a per-
son jumping from a building,
or a speeder running a red
light. She asked whether


police should intervene in
those cases. Of course, they
should ... those cases are
against the law and consid-
ered crimes.
Neither Terri Schiavo nor
her husband Michael commit-
ted a crime. The only thing
Terri did wrong was not put
her wish in writing. Ms. Davis
also goes on to state that
Judge Greer, Michael Schiavo
and others said that Terri
Schiavo wanted to suffer
while she starved to death.
That she wanted to die by
cruel and unusual punish-
ment.
Taking her off life support
was Terri's wish and medical
experts said she felt no pain at
all. The intruders were Terri's
parents, Congress (subpoena
farce) and on down the line to
anyone that didn't respect or
grant Terri's wish.
If she had a life will we
would not have heard about
this case. That is the bottom
line here. It was her decision
and it was her business. My
opinion, there was no crime
here.

Porches of


my past


here in North Florida. These are .
the days when the slight breeze of
spring begs attention, where the
breeze holds its warmth into the
twilight hours.
I have enjoyed what my brain and body
deem as "early" screened-porch days this
season, my first spring in Florida. Screened-
porch days came much later in the year as
a boy growing up in the Midwest.
When I was a kid, screened doors and
screened windows were much different
than the modern ones of today. I still love
today's model, love to feel the breeze, but I
remember my father struggling to repair
screens at the beginning of each season.
We had a large screened-in porch made
from a series of custom wood frames. In the
winter, the screens were either removed or
covered to protect from snow and icy
winds.
Each spring, we would repair the
screens, repaint the frames and install them
around the porch. I can see my dad ham-
mering out any dents and stretching the
screen wire tight between the frame pieces
and tacking it into place. It was a chore, but
one you were glad was finished when the
mosquitoes and other flying insects
returned.
The door was the final piece to the puzzle
and the task at hand that had to be in place
before you could sit in one of the rocking
chairs on the porch and relax. It had a large,
heavy, wooden frame and a divider between
a large top section of screen and the small-
er bottom portion. The door sometimes
swelled during rainy periods and would not
close properly.
I look at today's screened doors and I
laugh to myself. No way these aluminum-
framed, lightweight screens would hold up
to what my friends and I put ours through.
back in the day.
If it was raining and we couldn't imitate
our favorite St. Louis Cardinal of the era,
we would play on the porch and throw a ten-
nis ball off the metal screens at the end of
the porch. They were strong enough to
return a short-hop, which I w6uld catch and
burn another throw across the imaginary
diamond into the screen. This was good fun
for at least an hour or until one of my par-
ents heard the commotion and came blaz-
ing out of the house. The screens had to be
protected, after all.
Today, I'm not even sure that screens are
made of metal. I had never seen tinted
screen until I moved to the South.
As a kid, the screened door was the best.
It offered the most creativity for games and
other time-killers I needed as a child. There
were no hydraulic pistons to close the door
in those days. Only a simple spring was
hooked between the door frame and the
door. It made the unique stretching "zing"
sound when the door was opened and it was
stretched to its maximum. Then came the
rifle-shot crack of the door slamming when
it was let go something my parents hated
with a passion.
Sure enough, the farther you pulled open
the door and let it fly, the more impressive
the crack. Finally, when the door was
opened all the way, and slammed hard
enough to literally shake the door frame,
out would come one of the parents and we
all would quickly find something else with
which to entertain ourselves.
One of the most popular games involved
friends. We would throw open the screened
door and run off the porch as fast as possi-
ble until we heard the door slam. We would
mark how far away we were able to get,
then the next kid would give it a try and see
if he was able to beat the first distance. That
meant he was faster than you and the game
was on. This game, too, lasted only as long
as the parents could tolerate the slamming
screened door.
I have swung on screened doors and
jumped off with enough clearance to make
it over the shrubs and onto the lawn.
I still love the screened-porch and all it
provides. I love watching the little one skip
around in the fresh air. Only now, I'm the
parent cautioning her about slamming the
door and making sure it closes so bugs
don't invade. I get the same looks I once
offered.
Spring is a wonderful time. Enjoy it.

Life along the Ichetucknee


By SUSAN SLOAN
Special io the Reporter

From the early American
Indians to the Spanish mis-
sionaries in the 1600s, the
Ichetucknee River has been
the source of life and food.
The American Indians and
missionaries survived on
pumpkins, beans, hominy,
figs, peaches and corn as well
as the abundant game and
fish found along the river.
Two centuries later, the
region was intersected by the
Tallahassee to St. Augustine
road, known as the Bellamy
Road.
In 1939, 26-year-old Ethan
Porter and his 20-year-old
wife, Cricket, moved onto
their current homestead on
Bellamy Road, which is now
called Elim Church Road.
Then and now, the area along
what is now Ichetucknee
Springs State Park is rural.
Nearby Fort White to the
southwest and Lake City to
the north were the two main
business areas where a
housewife could shop for the
few items that could not be
grown or obtained off the
land and river. There were no
"weekly menus" for the home-
maker of the 1940s in rural
Columbia County.
Meals were made from
what one could find in the gar-
den on any given day, or in
the winter months, what was
put up from the previous
growing season's surplus.
Following the Depression
and during the war years,
money was in short supply.
The Porters raised cows,
hogs and chickens that sup-
plied their table, and provided
Cricket with grocery money
to buy the sugar, coffee, rice
and flour to supplement her
pantry.
The Porters did not have a
refrigerator, so things like
milking the cow and gather-
ing the eggs were done on a


daily basis. Butter was
"churned" a half-gallon at a
time so as not to spoil, and
hogs were butchered and
made into sausage and bacon
that would last them through-
out the year.
A cool spot under the
house with a block of ice func-
tioned as a refrigerator of
sorts in the hot summer
months. The Ichetucknee
River provided a source of
fresh catfish, brim, trout and
bass year round. It also
served as the setting for many
summer holiday picnics for
the residents of the area. The
men fished and the wives
gathered to sew, shell peas (it
seems to Cricket, someone
was always shelling peas) and
to share gossip, recipes and
food.
Ichetucknee Springs was a
popular vacation destination
even then, and Cricket recalls
more than one occasion when
an ill-prepared traveler
knocked on her door asking
to borrow a pot or pan that
had been forgotten.
There were no fancy stoves
and ovens for Cricket. All her
cooking and baking was done
on a wood-burning stove
using the preferred cookware
of the day, cast iron. Imagine
baking a cake without an oven
thermometer. Cricket and
housewives of the time had to
rely on instinct to know exact-
ly when to add another log to
the stove and learned that oak
made the best cooking fuel,
burning slow and hot.
Cooking and keeping the fam-
ily fed was certainly a chal-
lenge in those days, but as
Cricket said, "We knew what
we had and we lived with
what we got."
Ethan Porter's father was a
cane farmer, providing the
family was an ample supply of
cane syrup. Cricket "made do
with what she got" during the
war years when sugar was in


TEthan and Crickett Porter stand at their home on
Ethan and Crickett Porter stand at their home on Elim


Church Road.
short supply by inventing a
pickle recipe using the cane
syrup from her father-in-law.
She admits they were not
exactly the best tasting pick-
les, but it was "what she had."
From the cane syrup and
peanuts grown on their farm,
a family favorite, peanut brit-
tle, was made to satisfy those
with a sweet tooth.
The Ichetucknee Springs
River and the surrounding
area provided well for its resi-
dents. The water was sweet
and clear, and the ground fer-
tile. While she worked the
fields, worked in the home or
prepared her family's meals,
Cricket relied on the railroad
that ran through the area.
The 11 p.m. train signaled
dinnertime, and throughout
the day she would listen for
the various trains to keep on
schedule. The family farm


provided corn for the chick-,
ens and horses, peanuts for
the hogs and a variety of veg-
etables for the table. Staples
of Cricket's kitchen garden
would include turnips, mus-
tard greens, a variety of peas
and beans, potatoes, sweet
potatoes, onions, tomatoes,
squash and beets. The area
was rich in native fruits, and
the blackberries or dewber-
ries, wild blueberries, figs, fox
grapes, native persimmons,
pears, mahews, black walnuts
and chincapins were the basis
for many desserts and jellies..
What couldn't be used fresh
was canned for use during the
winter months.
Time brings progress, and
at the end of the 1940s elec-
tricity finally came to the
area. Cricket became the
proud owner of a General
Electric refrigerator that in


many ways simplified her
life.
But progress is a tricky
thing. Over the past 60-plus
years, family farms have
become somewhat of a thing
of the past, and the once pri-
marily agricultural area is
now home to many non-farm-
ing families. While the
Ichetucknee River is not as
pure and clean as it once
was, it still supports abun-
dant fish and wildlife, and
many of the native fruits and
nuts can still be found in the
hammocks around the area.
On Saturday, a special day
is planned at Ichetucknee
Springs State Park to cele-
brate the place that has con-
tributed to the tables of
many Columbia County resi-
dents over many centuries.
Lake City Appreciation Day
will be held from 9 a.m. to 4
p.m. Admission is free, and
visitors are encouraged to
bring lunch. Why not invite
your neighbors to come and
replicate the riverside com-
munity gatherings of the
past with everyone bringing
a covered dish. Cricket
Porter has adapted many of
her old-time recipes for the
more modern cooking
advantages and maybe one
of the following would be just
the thing.

Cricket Porter's Tumip
Greens and Dumplings
Clean and prepare turnips.
Cook in small amount of
water. Put a pound or more of
fresh pork ribs in a pot on top
of turnips. Add salt and 1-
tablespoon sugar. Let cook on
low for about 1-1/2 to 2 hours
until meat is tender. You
might have to add more
water.
Corn meal dumplings:
1-cup plain cornmeal


1 egg
1-1/2 cup


boiling turnip


greens liquid
1/4-teaspoon salt
1-teaspoon sugar
Add cornmeal to hot liquid.
Stir well making a thick
mush. Add seasonings. Add
egg and stir well. Drop by
tablespoons on floured board.
Roll into balls and roll in flour.
Drop into boiling turnips and
cook slowly for about 15 min-
utes. There's your meat, veg-
etable and bread in one dish.

Cricket Porter's
"Famous" Corn Pudding
(Note: If there is a covered
dish dinner and Cricket is in
attendance, chances are you
will have the opportunity to
sample this often requested
specialty as it is always in high
demand)
2 cans cream style corn (or
homemade for the ambitious!)
1-cup milk or half & half
1/4 stick butter, melted
4 eggs
4 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons sugar
Mix sugar and flour. Add

LAKE CITY REPORTER, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 6, 2005


ICHETUCKNEE
Continued from page 1A

Creating a day specifically
aimed at promoting
Ichetucknee to Lake City was
developed also because of the
economic impact Columbia
County residents benefit from.
A Florida State University study


FUNDING

operated without the United
Way funding.
Joseph George, president of
the Annie Mattox Recreation
Center, said the letter he
received stating the funding
was terminated didn't list why
it had been terminated.
On average, George said the
Annie Mattox Recreation
Center serves at least 1,000
children, without including
attendance at special events.
George said no definite plan
has been developed to recoup
the $10,000 in funding that has
been lost for the year, but the
organization's board is working

sewage treatment plant also
discharged wastewater to the
lake until 1987, when the
sprayfield was constructed
south of town to receive the
treated effluent.
Today, wetlands provide a
number of valuable services.
They store floodwater, pro-
vide natural water filtration,
and they grow lots of fish,
waterfowl, and other wildlife.
The agricultural activities
on the lake's eastern shore
resulted in the loss of about
500 acres of productive wet-
land and shallow lake bottom
habitat. It also has been
learned that sewage effluent
and stormwater runoff (the
rainfall which runs off
streets, parking lots, and
farms) contain nutrients, sed-
iment and harmful chemicals
which degrade water quality
and lake habitat. These
insults have taken their toll


in 2003 found that the springs
generate $22 million a year for
the area, Stevenson said.
Aside from the environmen-
tal and economic effects,
Stevenson said the event's
organizers want Lake City resi-
dents to appreciate a valuable
resource so nearby.
"We want to raise the aware-
ness that right there in your


on alternative funding sources.
'We're working plans right
now and we're basically reach-
ing out to the churches," he
said. "We've already recouped
at least $5,000 that we were
going to be losing, but we are
going to be looking at some
other avenues as far as fund-
raising. We're still going to be
open we're not closing
shop."
Chris Dampier said the loss
of funding was only one issue
facing the center and also
spoke about declining atten-
dance.
During the meeting, the
need to improve the facility and
make it more attractive to the
children was suggested by a
community member. Dampier


on Alligator Lake. The lake's
water quality is regarded as
fair at best, due mainly to
high nutrient levels and
resulting "blooms" (dense
populations) of algae -
microscopic green plants sus-
pended in the water. Exotic
plants such as hydrilla and
water hyacinth cause periodic
problems on the lake due to
their growth.
Public concern led to the
birth of a program to bring
back Alligator Lake, a pro-
gram involving local, state,
and federal levels of govern-
ment, conservation groups,
and concerned citizens.
In 1988, the lake was desig-
nated a priority water for
restoration planning by the
Suwannee River Water
Management District
(SRWMD) under the Surface
Water Improvement and
Management program.. In
1994, Columbia County was
awarded a $1.5 million grant
from the Florida
Communities Trust Program

the finest spring systems in the
whole world," he said.
"Sometimes we take for grant-
ed places close to home."
Most events are taking place
at the north entrance on
County Road 238, but educa-
tional films will be playing at the
south entrance located on U.S.

said that could be a logical area
to address through capital
expenditures.
Though center officials have
also missed the appeals dead-
line, they and United Way offi-
cials said the meeting was ben-
eficial in setting future priori-
ties, and another meeting has
been scheduled for 4 p.m. May
6 to continue the dialogue.
"A meeting like this just
opens up the dialogue and
communications to mistakes
that we've made in the past and
we're going to work on rectify-
ing those mistakes," George
said. "Ifs just really good for us
to make corrections for what
we're doing, do the right thing
and for us to be efficient in
what we are doing."


to acquire the diked farm-
lands and adjacent lands on
the east side of the lake,
which happened in 1997. In
1999, SRWMD and the coun-
ty secured $160,000 from the
NRCS Wetlands Reserve
Program, with $53,000 of
matching funds from the
Ducks Unlimited MARSH
Program.
These dollars, along with
funds from the Florida
Department of
Transportation, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission,
and matching efforts from
city and county work crews,
were used to punch breaches
and install culverts in the
dikes, build bridges and water
control structures, and con-
duct other restoration efforts
on the county-owned lands
and other areas of the lake.
In order to restore the wet-
lands inside the diked areas,
all that had to be done was
"just add water."

RELAY
Continued from page 1A

chairwoman for the local relay
that's been coordinated by the
American Cancer Society and a
volunteer committee. "We are
expecting about 600 people."
Gottschalk said that amount
is in addition to the "200-plus"
cancer survivors expected for
the opening Survivor's Victory
Lap followed by a reception
dinner in their honor.
From there the participants
will take turns walking the
track of CHS' stadium through
the night.
To keep people entertained
late into the night and early
morning, Gottschalk said
there will be food concessions,
games and entertainment,
including an all-night disc jock-
ey and performances by local
singers Kylie Williams, Caitlin
Eadie and Amber Miller. For
the children, Louie Mabrey,
pastor of Wesley Memorial
United Methodist Church, will
present a magic show as "The
Great Loudini."
Gottschalk said that every-
one in the community is
encouraged to come to the


plant seeds in the soils (a
seed bank) was such as to
permit recovery of wetland
vegetation on the old farm-
lands, once hydrology was
restored to the area. The
SRWMD, Lake City, and
Columbia County are now
working on a comprehensive
stormwater management plan
for Alligator Lake which
should help address pollution
, from stormwater runoff.
In addition to the fishery
and wildlife benefits of the
restoration efforts, many
other outdoor recreation
opportunities are now avail-
able at Alligator Lake. With
grants from the Florida
Recreation Development
Assistance Program, the
Florida Boating Improvement
Fund, and their own funds
and personnel, Columbia
County constructed a recre-
ation area on the east side of
the lake with parking, a canoe
ramp, canoe trails, picnic facil-
ities, playgrounds, and an
extensive hiking trail network


event to walk at their leisure
and/or just to enjoy the festivi-
ties.
'They can come out and
enjoy it and don't have to be on
a team because there is going
to be all kinds of things there
to buy and concessions, and it
may create interest in them to
want to have a team next year,"
she said. "It's definitely a fun
event, bring the kids and have
fun."
But the most popular, and
most emotional part of the
event is the luminaria ceremo-
ny at 9 p.m.
During the ceremony, paper
bags filled with candles are lit
and placed around the track as
people fill the stadium seating
to spell the words "hope" and
"cure." The stadium lights are
then dimmed to let the lumi-
narias shine more brightly the
names' of those who have sur-
vived and those who have died
from cancer.
The luminarias can be pur-
chased in someone's honor
until the 9 p.m. ceremony for a
donation, typically $5.
However, Gottschalk said it
can be a donation of any
amount.
She said the name of the per-


along the dikes and adjacent
lands.
Canoeing, hiking, trail.bicy-
cling, bird watching, wild-
flower appreciation, and other
activities are available to the
public on these lands.
This area is open
Wednesday-Friday from 11
a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday
and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 7
p.m. The county and City of
Lake City have also been mak-
ing improvements on their
boatramps at the north and
south ends of the lake to
enhance access. The FWCC
has constructed a fishing


son who has survived or died
from cancer is then put on the
bag.
"It's a very solemn time,"
Gottschalk said. "But it brings
to light that all of these things
going on are done for a rea-
son."
Gottschalk said she is hope-
ful this year's event will be well
attended especially after being
moved back to CHS. In 2004, it
was held at the Columbia
County Fairgrounds because
the stadium's grass areas were
being worked on.
The theme for this year's
event is "Around the World for
a Cure," with many of the
teams expected to sell food
themed to a chosen country
and perhaps decorate their
temporary homes in the "tent
city" where participants con-
gregate and sleep in shifts.
For children who are old
enough to stay throughout the
event, Gottschalk said they
"love it."
"It's a good excuse to stay
awake all night."

purchase a luminaria for a
loved one affected by. cancer,

pond on part of the county
property, which has been
stocked with catfish and
bream and is used for youth
fishing derbys and clinics.
In the more distant future,
plans are being made to devel-
op an environmental educa-
tion center and programs on
the lake.
Many old Lake City "crack-
ers" grew up fishing and hunt-
ing on Alligator Lake. With
the efforts being made to
rehabilitate the lake, that
opportunity should be avail-
able to their grandchildren
and great-grandchildren.

Cowboys beat Indians


By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter. corn

FORT WHITE For one
inning, Fort White High had
Madison County High on the
ropes. After spotting the
Cowboys two runs in the top
of the first, the Indians rallied
for four in the bottom half of
the frame and a two-run lead.
Then came a 10-run second
inning for Madison, and the
Cowboys rode the outburst to
a 15-5 win over Fort White in
five innings on Tuesday.
'"We battled in the first
inning," Indians coach Mike
Rizzi said. "But then that next


inning we just gave up way too
many runs. And then the guys
kind of got down a little bit I
think. It all starts with pitching."
Bruce Williams went 3-4 for
Madison with a solo home
run to start the scoring in the
first, and he ended up with
five RBIs.
Brian Bass also homered
and was 1-2 with three RBIs
and three walks. Freddie
Blalock was 1-3 with a three-
run home run to left center
field in the second.
Rufis Wyche picked up the
win after pitching four innings
and allowing four runs on
three hits. He struck out


three and walked two.
The Indians were forced to
use four pitchers to stop the
onslaught Jeremy Harrell took
the loss after lasting one inning.
Elven Sheppard relieved and
pitched 1V innings. He allowed
three runs on three hits and
walked four. Jacob Tillotson
was next in line and he tossed I
of an inning and gave up one
run on no hits while striking
out one. The Indians walked 10
batters as a team.
Because Dusty Parrish and
Justin Dorris had combined
for a 10-4 win on Monday

Fort White High players and coaches gather after the
Indians' 15-5 loss to Madison County High on Tuesday.

Columbia High's Anrwan
Julks became an official mem-
ber of the 2005 recruiting
class at Carson-Newman
College with a signing cere-
mony on Tuesday.
Julks will join a team that
won the South Atlantic
Conference title for the 18th
time and made its 10th trip to
the NCAA tournament in
2004.
Head coach Ken Sparks'
team finished 9-3, with a first-
round win over Fayetteville
State and a second-round loss
to Valdosta State in the play-
offs. Valdosta State went on to
win the Division II national
title.
"We sent some film up
there on me, and they liked
what they saw," Julks said.
"One of the coaches
(Offensive Coordinator Mike
Turner) called Mrs. (Athletic
Director Melinda) Moses."
Julks visited the Jefferson
City, Tenn., campus the week
before spring break.
'"They .toured me around
the school, and I met some of
the football players," Julks
said. "They have got good
programs up there. All the
coaches are cool and down to
earth. The players said it is
more than a team. It is like a
family you can count on at any
point in time."
Julks was a defensive line-
man for the Tigers before
switching to tight end in his
senior year. He finished the
season with 13 catches for 215
yards and two touchdowns.
His breakthrough came in the
Land 0' Lakes High game.

TIM KIRBY/Lake City Reporter
Antwan Julks signed to play football at Carson-Newman College on Tuesday. Joining him at the ceremony were (seated, from
left) brother Ed Simmons, grandmother Queen Dottin and mother Rosalind Julks. Standing (from left) are Adam Crumitie,
Earnest Claridy, Jeremiah Fulton, Athletic Director Melinda Moses, Garrethon Carter and Assistant Principal William Murphy.


"I remember my first catch
in the homecoming game,"
Julks said. "I had it for about
55 yards. I like defense, but
right now I am used to playing
offense, so I think I'll take
tight end."
Julks had three catches in
the game for 81 yards and a
TD. He also caught a touch-
down pass in the district win
over Gainesville High. He
hauled in four passes for 60
yards in the North Marion
High game.
Julks expects a chance to
catch some passes for the


Eagles.
"They are a hard-nosed
running team with the option,
but they will throw it to me if I
can make the plays," Julks
said. 'Their tight end last year
had 26 catches."
As a tight end for CHS,
much of his practice time was
spent on blocking.
"Coach (Mitch) Shoup
worked with me the most,"
Julks said. "He had me by
myself doing drills and work-
ing out in the weight room. All
the coaches got us together in
the summer, and that is what

helped me a lot."
Julks also played basketball
for the Tigers at center, where
he averaged 5.8 points per
game and 5.5 rebounds.
"Playing basketball helped
me with footwork and agility,
to be more athletic," he said.
Julks also said workout
partners Garrethon Carter,
Albert Coker, Dee Ilunga and
Ian Smith helped him by
pushing each other.
Julks has been working and
taking it easy since basketball
season ended, but that will
change. Carson-Newman

Columbia High's boys ten-
nis team got off to a good
start after spring break with
a 7-0 win against Belleview
High on Tuesday.
"It was good to get our
confidence back," Tigers
coach Sean Adams said.
Mallory Leighty defeated
Mark Gordon in singles 8-2.
Matt Yelken beat Jason Shem
8-4. Chester Tan defeated
Scott Barrett 9-7. Travis
Green topped Troy Barrett 8-
0. Kyle Townsend defeated
Doug Eckert 8-0. Leighty and
Zach Waters beat Gordon
and Barrett in doubles 8-1.
Yelken and Tan defeated
Shem and Eckert 8-2.
The Tigers (6-6) and Lady
Tigers host Baker County
High today at 3:30 p.m.

Fort White track
The Fort White High track
team had its first meet after
spring break at Suwannee
High. The Indians competed
against six other schools:
Suwannee, Hamilton County
High, Jefferson County


High, Columbia High and
Branford High.
Since it was the first meet
back, times were kept but
points were not tallied. Also,
anyone who wanted to run
had a chance to run.
'"The times were a lot slow-
er," Indians coach Demetric
Jackson said. "I think it
(spring break) affected
everybody. It's hard to prac-
tice (during the break)."
The girls 4x800-meter team
of Elizabeth Weddle, Adrienne
Wray, Ashley and Nicole
Waddington placed first. The
same team also placed fourth
in the 4x400-meter team.
Weddle also came in first
in the 800 meters, while
Nicole Waddington was first
in the 400.
Elijah Serrano-Prusinski
was second in both the 110
and 300-meter hurdles. Tim
Robinson was fourth in the
800. Brandon Milliken placed
fifth in the mile. Jonathan
James was sixth in the 100.

Tournament time for CHS JV


Lady Tigers


stand 12-0

By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter. com

Columbia High's junior var-
sity softball team wraps up its
season this week, as the pro-
gram points toward the
District 6-4A tournament
which is the week of April 25.
The season-ending tourna-
ment for the junior varsity
Lady Tigers is the Ocala JV
Championship, which will be
held Friday and Saturday at
Ocala Shocker Park.
"Belleview varsity coach
Gary Greer uses the tourna-
ment as a fund-raiser for his
program," JV head coach
Jimmy Williams said. "There
is a $100 entry fee to take
care of the umpires, and he


makes money on the gate.
This is our fourth year play-
ing in it."
There are 20 teams in the
tournament this year, with 16
competing among the junior
varsity teams. There is a four-
team mini-bracket for fresh-
man teams.
Columbia is pitted against
Citrus High in the first game
(7 p.m. Friday). The Lady
Hurricanes have won the
tournament two of its three
years. In other pool play, CHS
faces Belleview (9 a.m. Satur-
day) and Vanguard (12:30
p.m. Saturday). A champ-
ionship round will follow.
"Our goal is to go down
there and do well," Williams
said. "We never have, and we
have been talking about it
from day one. Some on our
team went last year, and we
just seem to not play good on
Friday."
Columbia improved to 12-0


with a 18-1 shellacking of Fort
White High on Monday and
will travel to Bell High for a
6 p.m. game on Thursday.
In the Fort White game,
Jamie Williams was the win-
ning pitcher and went 4-for-4
and scored three runs. Mandi
Wethington also pitched.
Lauren Nelson was 3-for-4
and scored three runs.
Michele Maxson was 2-for-3
and scored three runs. Both
Kristi Wilson and Amanda
Jones were .2-for-4 with a run
scored.
Many of the JV players
came up through Sliders trav-
el team coached by Williams.
"They have been playing
together for a while and
things are going good for us
right now," Williams said.
"They are a well-rounded
team, with good speed, good
pitching and good hitting.
They are excited and really
focused on the tournament."

Augusta National


A hole-by-hole look at Augusta National
Golf Club, site of the 69th Masters
Tournament to be played Thursday through
Sunday. Names of the hole in parentheses:
No. 1, 435 yards, par 4 (Tea Olive): A
slight dogleg right with a deep bunker
requiring a 300-yard carry off the tee. Any
drive too far left could go into the trees. Most
players will opt for 3-wood to avoid both on
this uphill hole.
No. 2, 575 yards, par 5 (Pink
Dogwood): A dogleg left that can be reached
in two by the big hitters. Fairway bunker on
the right comes into play, but it's difficult to
reach the slope, which shortens the hole.
Green guarded by two bunkers in front
No. 3, 350 yards, par 4 (Flowering
Peach): One of the best par 4s in golf, a hole
that hasn't been changed in 22 years. Big hit-
ters can drive the green, but not many even
try because .of all the trouble surrounding
the L-shaped green that slopes severely from
right to left. Most players hit iron off tee to
stay short of four bunkers on the left side.
No. 4, 205 yards, par 3 (Flowering
Crab Apple): Deep bunker protects right
side of the green, with another bunker left.
Mid- to long iron off the tee, but club selec-
tion is crucial because of the deceptive wind.
Green slopes to the front. .
No. 5, 455 yards, par 4 (Magnolia):
The hole was lengthened by 20 yards three
years ago, and the fairway bunkers extended
80 yards toward the green. Bunkers are so
deep that players can only see the sky. Green
slopes to the front.
No. 6, 180 yards, par 3 (Juniper): An
elevated tee to a large green with three tiers,
with significant slopes marking the three lev-
els. Getting close to the hole is a challenge.
No. 7, 410 yards, par 4 (Pampas):
The tee shot is through a chute of Georgia
pines, played to the left-center of the fairway
into a slight slope. Short iron to a green sur-
rounded by five bunkers, all of them making
it difficult to get par.
No. 8, 570 yards, par 5 (Yellow
Jasmine): An accurate drive is important to
avoid the fairway bunker on the right side.
The hole is uphill and features trouble left of
the green. No bunkers around the green,
just severe mounding.
No. 9, 460 yards, par 4 (Carolina
Cherry): Tee shot should be aimed down the
right side for a good angle into the green,
which features two large bunkers to the left.
Any approach that is short could spin some
60 yards back into the fairway.
No. 10, 495 yards, par 4 (Camellia):

INDIANS
Continued from page 1B


against Interlachen High, and
the Indians had two games
remaining this week, Rizzi had
few options. So he called on
* Tony Basile who hadn't
pitched at all this year in the
-- fourth inning, and Basile held
the Cowboys scoreless for the
> rest of the game.
"I was nervous my first
inning, and I walked a guy,"
Basile said. "I finally relaxed
and struck a guy out. And I just
got ground balls and pop outs
to get out."
-* After Williams'. home run
and Richie Sowell scoring on a
wild pitch to give Madison a 2-0
lead, the Indians got three
straight hits in the bottom of
the inning.
Kyle Espenship led off with a
single to short, then he went to
second on a wild pitch.
Tillotson reached on an infield
single that moved Espenship to
third. Harrell then ripped a sin-
gle to right to score Espenship
to make it 2-1.
Dusty Parrish walked and
Tillotson scored on a wild pitch
to tie the game. Justin Dorris
then picked up his second RBI
at the plate when he hit a sacri-
fice fly that scored pinch run-
ner Derek Smith. Basile then
reached when the second base-
man bobbled the ball on a
grounder, and Parrish scored


A long hole that can play shorter if drives
catch the slope in the fairway. Difficult to
save par from the bunker right of the green.
The putting surface slopes from right to left.
Has played as the most difficult hole in
Masters history.
No. 11, 490 yards, par 4 (White
Dogwood): Amen Corner starts here. Three
dozen pine trees were added to the right of
the fairway last year, putting an even greater
premium on accuracy off the tee. A pond
guards the green to the left and a bunker is
to the back right. The safe shot is to bail out
short and to the right in a swale.
No. 12, 155 yards, par 3 (Golden
Bell): Perhaps the most famous par 3 in golf,
and the shortest hole at Augusta. Club selec-
tion can range from a 6-iron to a 9-iron, but
it's difficult to gauge the wind. Rae's Creek is
in front of the shallow green, with two
bunkers behind it
No. 13, 510 yards, par 5 (Azalea): An
accurate tee shot to the center of the fairway
sets up players to go for the green. A tribu-
tary to Rae's Creek winds in front of the
green, and four bunkers are behind the put-
ting surface.
No. 14, 440 yards, par 4 (Chinese
Fir): The only hole on the course without a
bunker. Even if the drive avoids trees on
both sides of the fairway, a 7- or 8-iron is
needed for a green with severe contours that
feed the ball to the right.; : ;, Z. .1
No. 15, 500 yards, par 5 (Firethorn):
A cluster of pines is starting to mature on the
right side of the fairway, making it critical to
be straight off the tee. The green can be
reached in two with a good drive, but a pond
guards the front and there is a bunker to the
right. Gene Sarazen made a double-eagle
from the fairway in 1935, the shot that put
the Masters on the map.
No. 16, 170 yards, par 3 (Redbud):
The hole is played entirely over water and
eventually bends to the left. Two bunkers
guard the right side, and the green slopes
significantly from right to left. Pars from the
top shelf of the green on Sunday are rare.
No. 17, 425 yards, par 4 (Nandina):
The Eisenhower Tree to the left-center of
the fairway is about 195 yards from the tee,
requiring another accurate tee shot. The
green is protected by two bunkers in the
front
No. 18, 465 yards, par 4 (Holly): Now
among the most demanding finishing holes
in golf, this uphill, dogleg right is protected
off the tee by two deep bunkers at the left
elbow. Trees get in the way of a drive that
strays to the right. A middle iron is required
to a green that has a bunker in front and to
the right.


on the play.
Brandon Wheeler scored the
Indians' last run in the fourth
when Cory Capallia reached on
a throwing error at first.
The previous day, Parrish
got the win against Interlachen.
He allowed three earned runs
in four innings. Dorris came on
and got the save after pitching
three scoreless innings. Fort
White pounded out 15 hits on
the day and broke open a 5-4
game with five runs in the sixth
inning.
Espenship was 3-4 with two
runs scored, a stolen base and
an RBI. Tillotson was 2-3 with a
run scored, a double and two
RBIs. Harrell was 24 with a
double and two RBIs. Parrish
was 1-2 with a run scored and
his first home run of the season.
Matt Huesman was 2-4,
Wheeler was 2-4, and Basile
was 1-4. Dorris was 14 with a
run scored and Smith went 1-3.
Fort White rescheduled its
game at Bradford High for
April 20. The Indians were
down 1-0 after three innings
when the game was postponed
by rain. A second meeting
between the two schools was
also washed out by rain.
The Indians' March 3 game
against Chiefland that was also
canceled will be played at home
on April 29 at 4:30 p.m.
Fort White (5-6, 2-3 in
District 4-3A) plays at Hamilton
County High at 7 p.m. on
Thursday.
