County

to award

mowing

contract
Commissioners threw out
past bids to reevaluate
award process.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter. com
Columbia County officials
could have a service provider
to mow county rights-of-way
and pick up trash within a
few weeks.
County commissioners are
scheduled to award the bid
during tonight's meeting at 7
p.m. at the School Board
Administrative Complex
auditorium, 372 W. Duval St.
Two months ago, commis-
sioners threw out bids and
proposals from three mowing
companies who were vying
for the job after two of the
vendors indicated they would
file a protest with the bid
award.
In the wake of county offi-
cials rejecting the proposals,
they agreed to take a look at
the procedure which county
bids were awarded.
They agreed to continue
monitoring the awarding
process until mid-summer.
Commissioners then held
a workshop to develop a con-
sensus on what board mem-
bers wanted from the
process.
During the March 9 work-
shop, County Manager Dale
Williams said the county has
accepted 43 sealed bids for
more than $15 million from
2002 2004.
The number of problems,
he said, has been minimal,
but problems do exist.
The initial review of the
bidding process developed
because there were inconsis-
tencies in the contract lan-
guage.
County officials have said
they plan to work on having
the appropriate language in
the contracts so the chance
of having future problems
would be kept to a minimum.
During tonight's meeting,
county officials also plan to
discuss a proclamation for
Child Abuse Prevention
month; the closing of SW
Jordan Street and future
plans for the Hall of Fame
Building.


On the board

City, county officials gauge


interest in skate park


More than 100
residents attended
public meeting.

By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter. com
When officials attempted
to meet with residents
about building a local skate
park in the past, Parks and
Recreation Director Roger
Little said only about five
people would show up.
But when a meeting was
held Tuesday night at the
Columbia County Schools
Administrative Complex to
determine interest in a
newly proposed skating
facility just north of Youngs
Park, Little said more than
100 people attended.
"We are not just doing it
to let it bog down now," he
said. "There is just too
much interest in it."
With the newfound sup-
port, officials are now look-
ing to go ahead with plans
to establish an informal
working group to deter-
mine the park's design and
cost. The group will be
loosely comprised of repre-
sentatives from the city,
county and schools along

City Manager Joe Cone

LOCAL & STATE


Center planning parents,


children's day for Friday


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter. corn
The chance to have a fun-
filled morning and learn
about local services for chil-
dren will be the feature attrac-
tion of the Early Learning
Coalition of Florida's Gateway
Parents and Children's Day.
The Early Learning
Coalition of Florida's Gateway
is holding its first Parents and
Children's Day from 9 a.m. -
noon Friday at an open lot
near the Westfield Square
Shopping Plaza, 484 SW
Commerce Drive.
LaShone Surrency, deputy
director of the Early Learning
Coalition of Florida's
Gateway, said the event will
have free food, a free game
show for children, bounce
houses, pony rides and prizes
for all the children. University
of Florida mascots, Albert
and Alberta, as well as the


Columbia High School mas-
cot, are also scheduled to
make appearances at the
event.
Surrency said several
social service agencies are
also scheduled to attend and
distribute information on par-
ent education and social serv-
ice resources.
Lake City's Vice-Mayor
George Ward also will be on
hand to present a Parents and
Children's Day proclamation.
"They recognize strong
families are at the center of
strong communities,"
Surrency said. 'We're expect-
ing about 700-800 people to
attend."
Surrency said she expects
people from Columbia,
Hamilton, Lafayette,
Suwannee and Union coun-
ties to attend as well as child-
care providers, parents and
employees of those communi-
ties. She said the counties are


service-delivery counties for
the Early Learning Center.
"We're holding the event to
reaffirm Florida's commit-
ment to child well-being; to
honor and encourage families
that are stable and nurturing
and to acknowledge the value
we place in children as a
resource and our greatest
hopes for Florida's future and
success," Surrency said.
This is the first time the
event has been held in Lake
City, but marks the 10th time
it has been held in the state.
"Families thrive when they
are connected to the opportu-
nities, support and services
intended to help them
achieve their full potential,"
Surrency said.
"Every parent in Florida
should have access to prena-
tal and infant health care. All
children in Florida should be
healthy, safe and ready to
learn."

Agreeing on


a brighter


tomorrow


developers are coming closer to
a meeting of the minds with rep-
resentatives of the State
Department of Community
Affairs regarding the expansion of Lake
City's Designated Urban Development
Area (DUDA). The time for agreement is
ripe.
Lake City and Columbia County contin-
ue to grow at a rapid pace. With that
growth has come pressure on the
resources available to both accommodate
new residents, businesses and industries
and handle their drinking and wastewater
needs.
Currently all land outside the DUDA
can be divided into lots no smaller than
'five acres. Most homeowners don't want
or need that much land. Expansion of the
DUDA would make more land available
that could be divided into traditional lot
sizes and meet the desires of residential
buyers.
A problem exists in the unchecked
growth of wells and septic systems, how-
ever.
The county does not provide utility
services. The city does have a water
treatment plant and plans for a large
expansion that would dramatically
increase the amount of available drinking
water. Likewise, Lake City has a waste-
water treatment plant capable of treating
more effluent, and plans for expansion.
Why then are so many subdivisions
ringing the city, many within a stone's
throw of existing water and sewer lines,
not being serviced?
One certain answer is money.
The city must recoup its costs for the
construction of the water and sewer infra-
structure, meaning developers and home-
owners have to pay a fee for those servic-
es. How the costs balance between city
tap-on fees and monthly bills versus the
costs associated with well and septic sys-
tem construction and upkeep will vary by
location.
The environmental impact is certain,
however. Too many septic tanks are
leeching wastewater into the Ichetucknee
Basin.
Another less sure answer as to why
water and sewer service is not more
prevalent in the urban areas outside city
limits is the age-old issue of turf. Who is
in control?
The ability to foster growth means
power. Who will wield it?
To the extent that this turf or power
issue exists in Columbia County
between city and county officials or
developers, it limits our current and
future growth. Every resident of this
community should find that unaccept-
able.
Chamber officers, builders and state
and local government leaders all agree
that the interest level among outside
businesses, industries and residential
newcomers in Lake City and Columbia
County has never been higher.
We have in our area an open window of
time. It may be open five years. It may be
open only two years.
If we are welcoming, if we provide the
needed land and infrastructure, if we put
the right foot forward, the kinds of busi-
nesses, industries and people we want to
help us grow in the 21st Century will
look through the opening and join us
here.
It is up to us to put aside whatever
obstacles there may be that prevent the
view through that window from being
anything but inviting.

American
justice?
A man rapes and kills a little

alive.
A man rapes and kills a little
girl in Florida and he is still
alive.
A lady who could not fend
for herself, who had neither


hurt nor killed anyone and
they say Pull the plug.
Is this American justice?
William Seeley

"No, I don't think the
city should charge for it.
Tax dollars pay for it."

'They use the streets so -
I think the city should
charge. Not a lot, but
something to help cover
extra expenses.

Bernard Joyner, 53

'The city is already
collecting the tax dollars
for expenses like this. I
think the city should
continue to pay for it."

"I think the city should
charge for the services at
least a portion of the -
costs."

"I think it sounds nor-

ices. I think they should
keep it like it is."

made modular equipment for
skate parks.
Little said right now the
plan is to build a park similar
to a $72,000 proposal the com-
pany submitted.
Once the equipment and its
cost is known, however, he
said it would help establish a
fund-raising goal to reach for.
Little said he hopes the city,
county, schools, local church-
es, businesses and civic
organizations will help pay for
the park's initial cost. He said
each piece of equipment for
the skate park can be pur-
- chased separately and are of
varying prices depending on
its size and function.
Cone said the city may or
may not contribute money to
the project depending on the
decision of City Council, but
is already donating the land
for the park and site prepara-
tion, which includes tearing
down dilapidated, graffiti-rid-

ing a 38-bed facility to accom-
modate more victims.
While Florida's domestic
violence rates have seemed
to decrease, Columbia
County's has increased,
Fagan said.
However, she said that
numbers can have different
meanings.
"We have improved servic-
es here and given women
more access to these servic-
es," Fagan said. "With more
services and knowledge of
assistance leads to more
reports of violence."
Conference participants
had an opportunity to attend
a social event at Stephen
Foster Folk Culture Center
State Park Wednesday
evening.
They enjoyed hors d'oeu-
vres, storytelling and music
from a string quartet.
Today's speaker will be
Susan McGee who will pres-
ent, "How Batterers Fool
Everyone."
McGee is the founder of
Minerva, Inc., an independ-
ent training, grant-wiring and
consulting firm dedicated to
social justice.
She is also the author of
the "Survivor's Handbook for
Battered Women."
The conference is coordi-
nated by the Florida
Coalition Against Domestic
Violence and the Florida
Department of Children and
Families.
It is sponsored by the
Columbia County Tourist
Development Council, the
Suwannee River Area Health
Education Center and the
Third Judicial Circuit Police
Chiefs Association.

are currently there.
Little said the eventual goal
is for a group of skateboard- -
ers and/or parents to take -
over responsibility for the
skate park and help support"
its upkeep by renting equip-
ment and selling concessions.
"It looks like there is a lot of
good interest," he said. "It
seems like we are heading in
the right direction with this "
thing."
Cone said he was also
pleased with the turnout and
support at Tuesday's meet-
ing.
"I thought the response
was real good and I saw a lot
of enthusiasm from the peo-
ple that were there and I think
we can make this happen," he
said.
Little said from the parks
and recreation perspective,
"we are full force" and with
the help of city Public Works, '
hopes to begin tearing down 2
the racquetball courts and -
begin getting the site pre-.'
pared to pour new concrete.

BRIEFS

AI-Qaida suspect
acquitted
BERLIN A Tunisian
man accused of planning
attacks in Germany for al-
Qaida was acquitted of ter-
rorism charges Wednesday
but found guilty of illegal
weapons possession and tax
evasion. He was sentenced
to three years, nine months
in prison.
The verdict marked anoth-
er setback for the German
government, which has had
difficulty making charges
stick in several post-Sept. 11,
2001, terror cases.

Most-wanted
militant killed
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia -
Security forces killed one of
Saudi Arabia's most wanted
Islamic militants on
Wednesday, the fourth
straight day of shootouts
with extremists in different
parts of the kingdom, the
Interior Ministry said.
The morning raid in the
capital came hours after the
end of a three-day battle with
militants in the desert town
of Rass, 220 miles northwest
of Riyadh. The battle ended
Tuesday night when security
forces stormed the extrem-
ists' hideout, leaving 14 mili-
tants dead, six captured and
14 security personnel wound-
ed.

Rebels stormed
bus guest house
SRINAGAR, India Two
suspected Islamic militants
on Wednesday stormed a
guest house holding passen-
gers waiting for the first bus
to cross the divided
Himalayan territory of
Kashmir in an attack target-
ing the biggest India-
Pakistan peace gesture in
decades. Both attackers
were killed and at least three
people wounded, but all the
bus passengers were safe,
police said.
Two buildings on the gov-
ernment complex for tourists
were gutted by fire and
smoke poured out of win-
dows as people jumped from
the ground floor assisted by
soldiers, but the house
where the bus passengers
had been staying was left
intact. The heat was so
intense that firefighters
could not enter the build-
ings.

Resignation to
be considered
BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan -
Kyrgyzstan's parliament
decided Wednesday to delay
consideration of President
Askar Akayev's resignation
one more day, scheduling a
special session that lawmak-
ers hope will bring a public
end to the political turmoil
that has engulfed this ex-
Soviet republic. *
Parliamentary speaker
Omurbek Tekebayev agreed
with lawmakers who called
for the parliamentary session
Thursday to be broadcast
live to this nation of 5 mil-
lion.


Gold rush runs
into opposition
MEXICO CITY -A
surge in world gold prices is
attracting U.S. and Canadian
companies eager for another
crack at the Latin American
lodes that once enriched the
Old World. But their mod-
ern-day methods strip
mines and cyanide-based
refining are meeting
fierce resistance.
"The indiscriminate
exploitation of our mines
and forests with no ethical
commitment is placing at
risk the very purpose of cre-
ation human life and
future generations,"
Cardinal Oscar Andres
Rodriguez, Roman Catholic
Archbishop of Tegucigalpa,
Honduras, warned last
month.

sports lines

Sometimes the joy
in sports comes
not only from
being at an event
and watching an
athlete do something spec-
tacular, but also from what
they say in the postgame
interviews.
Most of the time when
you interview a subject,
they have a pat list of
cliches they fall back on
when the questions start
coming. This is especially
true in sports, where pro-
fessional and collegiate ath-
letes can make Ben Stein
seem interesting by the
lack of what they say.
Occasionally though, an
athlete or a politician or
some other figure will
forego the Media 101 class
and will simply say some-
thing straight from the
heart. People like these are
referred to in the profes-
sion as "notebook fillers,"
because even on a day with
no news they still find ways
to fill out a reporter's
notebook.
Among athletes, exam-
ples range from outspoken
retired NBA star Charles
Barkley to homespun guys
like Brett Favre. One of the
all-time greatest space-
fillers was New York
Yankees Hall of Famer Yogi
Berra, who came up with
so many great quotes you
could fill this entire column
with them.
These types of athletes
are gold to reporters,
which is why they get so
much air time.
And if you're truly lucky,
these men will utter some-
thing so funny, so memo-
rable, that it will stay in the
consciousness for a long
while. There are Web sites
dedicated to some of the
best and funniest -
sports quotes ever. Here's
just a sample of some of
those quotes:
"Nobody in football
should be called a genius.
A genius is a guy like
Norman Einstein." Joe
Theismann, ESPN football
analyst.
"He's turned his life
around. He used to be
depressed and miserable.
Now he's miserable and
depressed." Harry Kalas
on Greg Maddux.
"Baseball is ninety per-
cent mental, the other half
is physical." Yogi Berra.
"I'm really happy for
Coach Cooper and the guys
who have been here six or
seven years." Former
Ohio State quarterback
Bobby Hoying after his
Buckeyes clinched the Big
Ten title.
"If my mother put on a
helmet and shoulder pads
and a uniform that wasn't
the same as the one I was
wearing, I'd run her over if
she was in my way. And I
love my mother." -
Former All-Pro running
back Bo Jackson.
"The NFL, like life, is
full of idiots." Former
San Francisco 49ers center
Randy Cross.
"Anyone with talent
can play in the Major
Leagues; for someone like
me to stay around as long
as I did, that's an
achievement." Bob
Uecker.
"Good pitching always
stops good hitting and vice
versa." Yogi Berra.

Monster Mash returns to Lake City


By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter. com

The 2005 Monster Mash for
Kids will return to Lake City
Friday-Sunday, and organizer
Joe Stathas said the third edi-
tion of the Mash will be the
best one yet.
"We've got five of the
biggest monster truck names
in the country, including the
one and only Gold Digger is
here," Stathas said. "So we
anticipate having a real, real
good show. The weather here
should be much better than it
was a year ago."
Last year's Monster Mash
took place during a torrential
downpour, so Stathas moved
the event back to April in
hopes of avoiding the nasty
weather.
"It rained 21 days nonstop
before that event," Stathas
said. "We know we've got
weather coming. Hopefully it
will come and blow out of
here."
Advance tickets are $5 for
each child who is 10-and-
under, and advance tickets for
adults are $10. All advance
tickets must be purchased by
noon on Friday and can be
bought at Smitty's Western
Store, Douglas Auto Repair in
Live Oak, Zaxby's, The Money
Man, 1st Street Music, Inter-
state Cycles and Moontime
Custard and Cream. Tickets at
the gate cost $5 more for
adults and children.
Friday the gates open at 5
and racing starts at 8 p.m. The
event will begin with a wheel-
ie contest and a doughnut
contest, then there will be
freestyle events and finally
racing. The crazy lawnmow-
ers are returning, and Stathas
said there will be several sur-
prise skits worked into the
show to entertain the crowd.
Saturday there will be a free
Pit Party for anyone who paid
for a ticket to the Monster
Mash. The Pit Party is from 6-


Gold Digger will be one of the
Friday-Sunday.

7 p.m. and is sponsored by
Lake City Hobbies. Racing
starts at 8 p.m.
On Sunday, the gates open
at noon and racing does not
start until 2 p.m. The event
will be finished at 4. Stathas
said that anyone who brings a
church bulletin on Sunday will
get a free monster truck ride.
'The first hour of the show
is going to be unbelievably
intense," Stathas said. "So that
way, if you have small chil-

able to go home and still say
'Wow, I got my money's
worth.'"
Again, Stathas' wife Melissa
will be driving her own mon-
ster truck.
Melissa will be the only
woman in the show, and she is
one of only five women in the
world who drives monster
trucks competitively. She will

Cqlumbia High's home ten-
nis match against Baker
County High, originally set for
Wednesday, was moved to
April 13 on the revised sched-
ule. Match time is 3:30 p.m.
The Tigers and Lady Tigers
are two weeks away from
districts.
Columbia's girls are in
action today, with a 3:30 p.m.
match at Belleview High.
Both teams travel to Suwa-
nnee High for a 3 p.m. match
on Friday.
"Belleview is a district
opponent, and our first match
with them was very tough,"
Lady Tigers coach Gary Hart
said after practice on
Wednesday. 'We beat them 4-
3 the last time, and we are
hoping to bring another victo-
ry home to solidify ourselves
for the district tournament."
Next week, the Lady Tigers
play Gainesville High, Baker
County and Buchholz High.
"The challenges are over,"

"Every show that we've
done since we were here last
year, she's won one of the two
freestyle events," Stathas said.
All of the proceeds from the
event will be going to Racing
for a Drug Free America.
Stathas is hoping to make
this an annual event.
"We're hoping like other
areas that we do it by the
fourth or fifth year, it'll get
easier and we'll have more


sponsors," he said. Stathas
also is glad to be returning to
Lake City.
"I love Lake City," he said.
'We're here once a year,
and the people here are so
warm. There's not another
place we go to and we've
traveled all over the country
and to foreign countries -
where we've never been so
well-accepted as we've been
here. The people of Columbia
County are just incredible."


Indians' Pope


qualifies for states


Lady Tigers

improve to 15-3

By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter. corn

The Fort White High
weightlifting team finished
fourth at the sectionals at
Union County High on
Wednesday, and one Indian
qualified for states.
James Pope won the 139-
pound weight class with a
440 total, edging teammate
Brian Coker, who was sec-
ond with 405 points.
"He has a chance to place
up at the top at states,"
Indians coach Mike Hunter
said.
The Indians have several
other lifters who can still
qualify for the state meet
after the results from the
nine sectionals around the
state are tallied.
Hunter thinks both


George Griffith and Chris
Griffith have a good shot at
states, and Trevares Holden
has a chance in the 219s.
George finished second to
the Lifter of the Meet in the
119s with a 375 total. Chris
was third in the 129s with a
380 total, with youngest
brother Steven finishing
sixth in the 119s.
Jonathan James also fin-
ished second in the 183s
with a 535 total, but because
it is such a strong weight
class statewide, he might not
qualify for states.
Holden had a 545 total.
Matt Howell placed sixth in
the 238s.
"I think traditionally our
section is pretty tough,"
Hunter said. "I feel like when
all our section scores are post-
ed, we'll feel pretty good."
After the first-place finish-
ers, the top eight lifters in all
sections combined can quali-

Columbia High continued
its winning ways with a 5-1
win on Wednesday against
Paxon School.
Jenna Payne improved to
10-0 on the season and struck
out 10 batters. She allowed
three hits and one unearned
run.
CHS struck first in the third
when Brittany Johnston led off
with a walk and was moved
over on a bunt single by Marie
Croft. Chelsea Blair flied out to
left for the RBI.
In the sixth, Megan Bart

"We're young and lack a lot
of experience, but if we play
up to our potential we can at
least compete for second or
third at district," Adams said.

"I look for Gainesville to
compete well and maybe even
win state," Adams said. "They
are, by far, the strongest team
we have faced in my nine
years of coaching. Their No. 4
could play No. 1 on most

"I thought we pitched real
well and I thought we played

thought we played real flat
though."

A morning at Lake Montgomery


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
There was a bit of testing
the waters on a recent morn-
ing at Lake Montgomery -
the recreation area on Baya
Avenue maintained by the
Lake City/Columbia County
Parks and Recreation
Department as a joint venture
with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
Corine Wise joined her son
and grandchildren in the
hopes of getting a few bites.
Wise, a part-time activities
director at Still Waters West,
wasn't hungry for fish, but
wanted to see if the grandkids
could hook a few.
"Both of my sons are into
scuba diving, and we had a big
family cookout last night with
lobster, grouper and yellow-
tail snapper," Wise said. "We
went out and bought some
shrimp and fried them up,
too."
Wise has lived in Lake City
one year, after 26 years in
Charlotte County. She fished
in Boca Grande and the canals
at Punta Gorda on the west
coast of Florida.
"I fished all my life and I
love it," Wise said. "I haven't
had an opportunity in a long
time. This is my second time
(at Lake Montgomery). I'm


..1A .a.


just out with the grandkids
and we are after whatever will
bite."
Brothers John and David
Bliffin were at the lake on a
different mission. John was
flipping his retractable cane
pole for fun, and David was
doing the work with a seven-
foot cast net.


David, who works at
Cracker Barrel, was sorting
shiners from the baby crap-
pies, which had to be thrown
back.
"We just keep the shiners
and we use them for catching
bass at a private lake near
Fort White," David said. "I do
a lot of fishing for bass. We


have 10 pounds of bass meat
in the freezer at the house."
When not using shiners,
David said his favorite bait is
rubber crawfish crankbait.
"If I was really going to fish,
I would be here about 6-6:15,"
John said. "The shutoff down
here in Florida is about 10
o'clock."
John is from Ohio and grew
up on Lake Erie, where he
fished for walleye, yellow
perch and smallmouth bass,
mostly trolling but sometimes
walking the bank.
"The best fish I ever tasted
is walleye," John said. "They
have jumbo perch up there,
13-14-15 inches, and you know
how perch tastes."
John said he misses the
fishing on Lake Erie, but not
the weather. The good thing
is there are no poisonous
snakes and biting spiders and
bugs in Ohio.
"The biggest thing you had
to worry about is an 80-90-
pound carp bumping into
you," he said.
An experience while visit-
ing family at Flagler Beach in
1993 keeps John away from
the coast.
He landed a sail cat and
stepped on the barb that went
right through his shoe and
into his foot.
"My foot was sore for the
whole vacation," he said.


FWC 2004 boating


statistics released


From staff reports

The FWC recently relea-
sed its 2004 boating statis-
tics. The number of regis-
tered boats in the state is at
an all-time high of 982,907,
compared to 978,225 in 2003.
Boating fatalities increased
to 68 from 64. In fact, fatality
numbers have increased
each year since 2000.
Monroe County reported
the highest number of acci-
dents and injuries witil 98
and 57, respectively. Pinellas
County reported the highest
number of fatalities with
seven. Palm Beach County
reported the highest proper-
ty damage figures at $8.69
million, including one inci-
dent that accounted for $8
million of that total. The sec-
ond-highest property damage
occurred in Miami-Dade
County with $1.2 million.
The typical boating acci-
dent victim is a 22-50-year-old
male with many hours of
experience in operating a
vessel. Drowing continued to
be the leading cause of death
in Florida boating accidents
(65 percent).
FWC boating safety offi-
cials and officers encourage
boaters to consider life jack-
ets to be similar to seatbelts
when it comes to their life-
saving potential. Also, exces-
sive alcohol use continued to
be the leading cause of boat-
ing fataltites in 2004.
More information about
boating accidents is available
at http://myfwc.com/law/
boating/.
