Local law enforcement steps up

efforts to track sexual predators


By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia County
Sheriff's Office Detective
Ed Seifert drops a thick,
white plastic binder on a
long conference room table.
Inside is a thick stack of
documents made up of pic-
tures, descriptions and
S. maps.
The photos are mugshots
of convicted criminals, and
the text is pertinent infor-
mation about each person,
such as their address and
crimes they've committed.
The maps show where they
live and what's nearby.
These are the 199 sexual
offenders currently living in
Columbia County, and it is
one of Seifert's duties to
help keep track of every
one. While some are cur-
rently in the county jail -
primarily on unrelated
charges most are out liv-
ing and working among the
public, either under supervi-
sion (reporting regularly to
parole officials), on proba-
tion or under community
control.
Some are fully "released"
meaning they report to no
case worker or probation
officer. But they are still
required to register as a sex
*offender or predator and
notify law enforcement

New $1.5 million plan
aimed at alleviating
major flooding in county.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter. com
,Columbia County's new
$1.5 million flood mitigation
strategy was unveiled Monday
night by county engineer John
Colson during a commission-
ers' workshop.
The proposed plan was
developed to minimize flood-
ing to homes during the heavy
rain periods.
The initial plan identified
five priorities where homes
were flooded or. repeatedly
threatened by flooding during
the year.
The strategy lists Old


County Club Road, which had
more than 10 homes flooded,
as the top priority. The pro-
ject's scope calls for acquiring
lots in critical areas to create
retention ponds, maximizing
the existing retention ponds,
installing permanent piping
between retention ponds and
minimizing downstream
impacts by pumping during
dry conditions.
The project has been esti-
mated at $450,000.
Other projects in the mitiga-
tion strategy include at least
$50,000 for work at SE Cedar
Loop; $150,000 for a project at
the Cannon Creek Acres
Subdivision; $250,000 for a
project at Callaway

River angler finds 8-year-old bottled message


Man fishing on Santa
Fe River tries to locate
author of note.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
FORT WHITE There is
no telling what an angler can
catch when he goes fishing on
the Santa Fe River.
Last week, Three Rivers
Estates' resident Gary Johnson
made a catch he won't forget.
While fishing in an isolated


cove of the river off Bridge
Road, Johnson saw a bottle
floating in the water. As he con-
tinued to peer at the green,
plastic bottle, he noticed it con-
tained what appeared to be a
note.
"I was fishing, and I just hap-
pened to look down, and there
was a green bottle floating in
the water. It just rolled around,
and I noticed a letter in it that
said 1997, and I was just curi-
ous," he said.
Johnson picked up the bot-
fie, went to his car to get a knife


to open it and then learned it
also contained 14 $1 bills along
with the messenger's home
address.
'The money was all
mildewed, black and smelly
from eight years of floating in
the river," he said.
According to the note, the
bottle was set adrift May 11,
1997 at Ginnie Springs, some
10-15 miles upriver. The note
said the person who found the
bottle should contact Faye
Kenton of St. Augustine.
"That was eight years ago.


We've been through quite a
few floods, plus the boaters and
tubers," he said. "I'm amazed it
made it. If it would have gone
the other way, it would have
never been found."
Johnson said he has tried to
contact Kenton, but thus far his
attempts have been unsuccess-
ful.
"I tried to get contact infor-
mation on the name through
the phone company, but there

I Council declares





i May a civil month


s"


By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter. corn
The city is asking its resi-
dents to be civil this month.
During Monday's city coun-
cil meeting, a vote was unani-
mous to declare May "Civility
Month" in Lake City.
The council has designated
the month as such for the past
several years.
It began in the late 1990s
with a request from the
Florida League of Cities to
encourage civility in govern-
ment.
At Monday's meeting, Vice
Mayor George Ward read a
proclamation officially declar-
ing the month before the vote
was taken.
Ward also pointed out the


city's own civility pledge "for
all you mayoral candidates,"
who were present at the meet-
ing.
The pledge is featured on a
plaque affixed to the wall of
the council chambers at City
Hall.
It reads: "We will be
respectful of one another,
even when we disagree ... We
will direct all comments to the
issues ... We will avoid per-
sonal attacks."
The plaque was often noted
and pointed to by former
Mayor Ray Kirkland during
his tenure of more than eight
years.
In other business council:
Unanimously voted to
award a bid of $776,000 to
Worth Construction and


Development of Live Oak for
installation of new water and
sewer lines to New
Millennium Building
Systems' steel joist and deck
manufacturing facility.
The project, which will
extend sewer services to the
company's site off Lake
Jeffery Road, will be paid for
mainly out of a $750,000
Community Development
Block Grant the city received
for the work.
However, only about
$611,000 of that money
remains after the city paid its
administrative fees for the
grant and other costs associ-
ated with the project.
For renovations of the
future City Hall building at
the corner of Madison Street


and Marion Avenue, formerly
CNB National Bank, the
council awarded a contract of
about $96,000 to J.L. DuPree
Construction Services.
The local construction
company, owned by Jody
DuPree, was the only bidder.
The work done will mainly
replace flooring, reconfigure
interior corridors and walls of
the building, and make minor
changes for it to be used for
city office space. The work
will also establish a new coun-
cil chambers on the second
floor of the three-story build-
ing.
Per the bid contract the
work is expected to be com-
pleted by July, before the city
hopes to begin moving
employees into the building.


'Boots and Boxers' calendar to raise money to fight cancer


By ASHLEY CISNEROS
acisneros@lakecityreporter. corn

Local men will be donning
cowboy boots, cowboy hats,
boxers and not much else all
in the name of cancer
research.
The American Cancer
Society will be producing its
annual "Boots and Boxers"
calendar fundraiser.
The men's' photographs
are included in a calendar that
is sold to raise money for the
society.


This year's photo shoot will
be held May 6 and 7 in the
Columbia County School
Board Administrative
Complex auditorium.
Some 36 men from LIve
Oak and Lake City will be par-
ticipating.
'The men will be divided up
into 12 teams of three for each
of the 12 months of the calen-
dar," said Tina Roberts, calen-
dar committee chairwoman.
The participant who sells
the most calendars will be the
king.


There will be 1,000 calen-
dars for sale by June 15 for
$10 each.
The calendars will be avail-
able from the participants and
selected locations to be deter-
mined. The photos will be
grouped based on occupation.
For example, doctors will
be photographed together
and firemen will be pho-
tographed together.
The theme this year will be
"The Faceless Nature of
Cancer."
"The faces of the men will


be obscured in the photo to
symbolize the fact that cancer
affects everyone regardless
of background," said Tami
Fritz, graphic designer for the
calendar.
"The bottom of the calen-
dar will have head shots of
each of the men with their
names, occupations, a quote
and information as to whether
they are a cancer survivor."
The men will be wearing
boots, boxers and a cowboy
hat in the Western-themed
calendar.


"In addition, we will also
have a vine representing life
that runs through the entire
calendar with names of can-
cer survivors that are submit-
ted by the participants," Fritz
said.
Roberts said this year is dif-
ferent because there are
more participants.
The calendar will benefit
from the talents of a profes-
sional graphic designer and
photographer.
"Our photographer, Steven
Heddon of Mirage Studios,


has done a lot of work for
charitable causes with the stu-
dio's Open Heart
Productions, and he will be
contributing his talents to us,"
she said.
In addition, the calendar
will also include the American
Cancer Society's mission
statement, events, functions
and information on services.
Local radio personalities,
school board officials, fire-
men, physicians and body-
builders will be among the
men photographed.

Wreck near
White Springs
injures two
WHITE SPRINGS A
wreck involving a Lake City
man left two Jennings resi-
dents in serious condition.
The two-car collision
occurred about seven miles
north of White Springs, on
County Road 137 around 3:20
p.m. Saturday. Jessie Gandy,
66, was driving a 1988 Dodge
pickup north on C.R. 137
when Daryl G. Freeman, 41,
of Lake City was traveling
south in a 1998 Chevrolet
pickup.
According to a Florida
Highway Patrol news release,
the right front of Freeman's
truck struck the right front
of Gandy's vehicle.
Gandy and a passenger in
his truck, Robert Davis, 14,
also of Jennings, were listed
in the news release as having
suffered serious injuries.
Freeman and a third passen-
ger in Gandy's truck, Patricia
Gandy, 42, only sustained
minor injuries.
Hamilton County EMS
transported the injured to
Shands at Lake Shore hospi-
tal.
Due to no witnesses and
bad weather, the news
release states the point of col-
lision was not found.
No one in Gandy's vehicle
was wearing a seatbelt, but
Freeman was wearing his.
No alcohol was involved in
the wreck and charges are
pending, according to the


news release.

Sheriff's Office responds

Office tracked down and

were able to stop the man
while he was driving on West
U.S. 90, near Brown Road,
Sunday night.

The right



approach



to growth


to the growth that certainly is
fast approaching, but town lead-
ers must not wait too long to
move on good ideas.
The city will most likely face the largest
challenge from funding a wastewater treat-
ment plant, but that's not a secret. How to
fund it and get it built quickly and properly
with a price tag everyone can live with is
the.big issue.
County officials know the growth is
coming to the south part of Columbia
County. Fort White will be one of several
targets, as will the Ellisville area and other
places as more people and more business-
es and industries take a look at what is
becoming the garden spot of North
Florida. ....
Our secret is out and people across the
country are noticing.
Fort White, with nearby Ichetucknee
Springs State Park, has long been a tourist
and recreational hotbed. Now, like it or
not, locals must prepare for development.
Let's make sure it's controlled develop-
ment with infrastructure in place and at a
pace that everyone can live with and man-
age.


Today is Tuesday, May 3, the 123rd day
of 2005. There are 242 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:
On May 3, 1945, during World War II,
Japanese forces on Okinawa launched their
only major counter-offensive, but failed to
break the American lines.

On this date:
In 1802, Washington, D.C., was incorpo-
rated as a city.
In 1916, Irish nationalist Padraic Pearse
and two others were executed by the
British for their roles in the Easter Rising.
In 1921, West Virginia imposed the first
state sales tax.
In 1933, Nellie T Ross became the first
female director of the U.S. Mint.
In 1944, U.S. wartime rationing of most
grades of meats ended.
In 1945, Indian forces captured Rangoon,
Burma, from the Japanese.
In 1948, the Supreme Court ruled that
covenants prohibiting the sale of real estate
to blacks or members of other racial groups
were legally unenforceable.
In 1971, anti-war protesters began four
days of demonstrations in Washington,
D.C., aimed at shutting down the nation's
capital.
In 1979, Conservative Party leader
Margaret Thatcher was chosen to become
Britain's first female prime minister as the
Tories ousted the incumbent Labor govern-
ment in parliamentary elections.
In 1986, in NASA's first post-Challenger
launch, an unmanned Delta rocket lost
power in its main engine shortly after liftoff,
forcing safety officers to destroy it by
remote control.
Ten years ago: The government reported
that its Index of Leading Economic
Indicators dropped half a percentage point
in March 1995, its biggest tumble in two
years.


Five years ago: The archbishop of New
York, Cardinal John O'Connor, died at age
80.

What is the cost
of faith?
After reading Mr. Charlie
Sparks' letter about the recent
series about Meade
Ministries, I felt that someone
should respond. I am glad that
he is proud of Mr. Meade's
military service and achieve-
ments. We should all be proud
of his service and that of all
those who came before and
after him. Freedom is dear. All
freedoms.
I do not think freedom is
the real issue at hand, though.
I feel the real issue may be
that of abuse. Emotional
abuse, psychological abuse
(cameras in the aisles to
watch facial expressions) and
financial abuse.
Faith healing, miracles -


each are as old as antiquity
and are part of religious free-
dom. But can someone under
18 be subjected to the reli-
gious beliefs of the parent if it
means they might die?
(Remember the 23-year-old
woman who bled to death
after giving birth, no one has
said if the baby survived, even
if the parent died. Or do you
remember the baby who died
from a treatable condition in
the late 1980s?)
The other issue is that of
emotional abuse. In this
instance, it is abusive to
expect large sums of money
from those parishioners to
make the payments on huge
churches, payments so large
that it has caused many for-
mer (hmm, I wonder why they
are former) members to file


bankruptcy, lose their busi-
nesses or go into extreme
debt. All this so Brother
Meade can buy $3,000 hats, a
fleet of Cadillacs, millions of
dollars' worth of real estate, a
climate-control barn for hors-
es, etc., etc.
I do not doubt Meade.
Ministries and the faith it
espouses. That is their busi-
ness and freedom. But I ask
the questions: Why accumu-
late so much material wealth if
the world is going to end? And
why ask for cash if churches
are tax exempt and why does
not Brother Meade defend
himself instead of using
Charlie Sparks to do it?

Richardson Middle upgrade more costly than expected


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter. corn

The Columbia School dis-
trict has run into a costly sur-
prise as it continues its
efforts to upgrade local
school facilities.
Though bids for the
Richardson Middle School
cafeteria project came in 20
percent higher than profes-
sionals expected and predict-
ed, the school board award-


ed the bid for the project last
week at its Tuesday meeting.
Mike Null, Columbia
School District director of
purchasing, said the esti-
mates by the architect/engi-
neers projected the cost to
be at $1.8 million, but
because of material costs,
the amount has ballooned.
"We recognize there's
been a significant increase in
steel and concrete costs,
which has affected this proj-


ect," Null said.
The contract was awarded
for $2,142,505 to the
Hashman Construction
Company of Jacksonville, the
same contractor that is con-
structing the auditorium at
Columbia High School.
The construction slated
for Richardson is a new free-
standing kitchen and cafete-
ria building.
"Some of the existing
equipment will be relocated


and some of the equipment
will be new," Null said.
The construction, which is
scheduled to begin this
month, will be completed by
May 2006, in time for the
2006-07 school year.
The project was in the
school district's five-year
work plan and was scheduled
for this year.
Though the school board
had the option of rebidding
the project, many didn't feel


the materials cost would
come down in the near
future.
Null said the 20 percent
increase is not common.
"This is just what we've
been seeing the past couple
of months in those two areas.
Plus many of the commercial
builders are quite busy with
all of the other construction
work taking place in
Florida," he said.
Capital .outlay funding


from the school district's tax
levy is helping fund the new
construction.
Richardson Middle School
was built in 1959 as
Columbia High School.
"There has been a minor
amount of renovation to the
facility but it was determined
in order to make the most
impact to the kitchen and the
site, we would be building an
entirely new free-standing
facility," Null said.

Sometimes students on a wait-

out until halfway through the
first week of the semester,
causing them to miss primary
lectures and discussions.
"We found students who
start after the semester begins
don't do as well," Mitchell
said.
A late registration period
and add/drop, where students
could originally tweak their
schedule in the first week of
school, has been moved to the
week before classes start.
Mitchell, who began her job

VA Medical Center holds women's


veterans appreciation program


By ASHLEY CISNEROS
acisneros@lakecityreporter.com

The Lake City Veterans
Affairs Medical Center held
a Women's Veterans
Appreciation Program
Monday.
The theme of the event
was "Women in Military
History."
Both men and women
gathered to hear the keynote
speaker, Maj. Gen. Marianne
Mathewson-Chapman, of the
Standby Ready Reserve
Army.
Formerly, Mathewson-
Chapman served as deputy
surgeon general to the Army
surgeon general and special
assistant to the director of
the Army National Guard in
Washington.
In addition, she has
worked as nurse executive at
the Veterans Administration.
Matthewson-Chapman was
the first woman in the Army
National Guard promoted to
the rank of major general
and survived the terrorism
attack on the Pentagon on
September 11 when she was
at a meeting inside.
Currently, her passion is
ensuring veterans affairs
services and benefits are
available to all National
Guard members and
reservists returning from the
current conflicts overseas.
Matthewson-Chapman
highlighted the struggles
women have experienced in
their desire to serve their
country.
For example, many women
were turned away when they
tried to enlist in the military.
Later, they were able to
serve, but only as volunteers
and did not receive benefits,
nor were treated as veterans.
However, many simply

Johnson said he doesn't
believe his latest find is a hoax
because the aged bottle, note
and money seem to be authen-
tic.
"I don't believe it was a prank
because of the condition every-
thing was in," he said. "When I
found it, I was just thinking
about why she stuck the note in
it. I'd just like to talk to her and
ask her what she was doing at
the time."
He said he's written Kenton a
letter and mailed it and is await-
ing for her response.
"I was excited just finding it. I
couldn't believe it's really been
in the water for eight years."

PREDATORS

graphic material, featuring
children, across the Internet.
"But the bottom line is
there is a victim somewhere,"
he said.
The sheriff's office is imple-
menting a new system for
tracking each of the county's
offenders, 26 of whom are
considered sexual predators
by the Florida Department of
Corrections. There are
detailed legal guidelines for
designating someone as a reg-
ular sex offender or a preda-
tor when they are sentenced
for a sex crime. Some of those
criteria include the severity of
the crime and the age of the
victim. For a sexual battery
against a child 12 years old or
younger, a conviction on that
charge would automatically
mean someone is designated
a sexual predator by Florida's
sentencing guidelines.
Sheriff Bill Gootee said a
sex offender, predator or not,
is typically treated the same
by law enforcement.
"We don't put one above the
other. To our agency we treat
them both the same in know-
ing where they are and how to
keep track of them," Gootee
said.
Seifert's binder is a "master
book" of all the sexual offend-
ers/predators scattered
throughout Columbia County,
from areas near the
Suwannee River, just south of
White Springs, down to Fort
White and all places in
between. The majority are in
or just outside of Lake City.
Five smaller versions of the
binders for the five patrol
zones of the county were
given to deputies Friday.
Starting now, Gootee said
each will be used for the
deputies on a particular shift
to go to the address of each of
the sexual offenders and
make sure they are living
where they say they are,
Gootee said.
"Which is a big task," he
added.
Currently, Seifert said
there are six of the county's
offenders who have failed to
properly register. He said he
suspects most of those have
left the state, but warrants are
still being sought for their
arrest.
Keeping up with the offend-
ers is a daily activity, he said.


Even though such a project
would benefit from additional
funding, and staff, Gootee
said, "I want to be proactive in
the county and go after this,
head on and not wait until we
have a child abducted or that
is missing ... that we have a
plan of action."
Gootee said even before
the recent killings of 9-year-
old Jessica Lunsford in
Homosassa Springs and 13-
year-old Sarah Lunde in
Ruskin, both allegedly at the
hands of sex offenders, the
sheriff's office has been work-
ing on a way to track those in
the county.
Seifert said he also encour-
ages residents to find out who
the county's offenders and
predators are and where they
live, particularly if they have
children at their home or chil-
dren visit them regularly. The
easiest way for most is to go to
www3.fdle.state.fl. us/sexual pr
edators/, which allows some-


one to view all of the regis-
tered offenders/predators in
the county.
"Know who you are living
near, keep an eye out for your
neighbor," Seifert said. "We
(law enforcement) can't be
everywhere at once."
While he said people
should make their neighbors
aware of a sexual offender in
their presence, he said he
does not encourage people to
confront those who live near
them.
If an offender shows dan-
gerous behavior, such as
approaching children, Seifert
said residents should call law
enforcement.
Recently in Marion County,
a man printed up flyers with a
sex offender's information
and added the words, "Child
Rapist."
That offender later commit-
ted suicide. Seifert said print-
ing and posting the fliers is
legal, but not if someone adds

their own wording.
Along with the binders,
Seifert has also started a
more high-tech method for
keeping track of offenders.
On his laptop computer is a
mapping program that fea-
tures a detailed street map of
the county with small dots
representing where a sex
offender is living.
The dots are red for preda-
tor or yellow for offender.
Looking at the screen, they
make up pock-marks through-
out the county, with many on
the east side of Lake City.
Seifert zooms in on some of
the areas, able to choose a
certain radius at will, and by
selecting one of the colored


dots, it shows exactly where
the offender lives, listing their
name, address and exact
Global Positioning System
(GPS) satellite coordinates.
He said the sheriff's office
hopes to soon be able to use
the program on deputies' lap-
top computers so the informa-
tion will be available to them
while on patrol.
While not currently avail-
able, he said the sheriff's
office would like to eventually
put such a map on its agency's
Web site, so people could see
exactly where the county's
sex offenders live in relation
to them.
For now, people can take an
address from the Florida


Department of Law
Enforcement sex offender
database and enter it on a Web
site like www.mapquest.com
to see where an offender lives.
Seifert said despite the
recent media attention to sex
offenders and the danger they
might represent to their com-
munity, the sheriff's office has
been and will continue to
make sure all of those in the
county are properly tracked
and comply with state law.
"It's front page news now,
but tomorrow it might not
be," Seifert said.
"We are still going to be on
board and doing everything in
our power to find out who is in
our county."

Examine pros, cons of indoor tanning


By ASHLEY CISNEROS
acisneros@lakecityreporter.com

There has always been a
debate about the safety of out-
door and sunless tanning.
Achieving a bronze glow is
a look sought after by both
men and women.
It has been said that using
tanning beds is a safer alter-
native to tanning under the
sun.
Tanning beds are much
more predictable than the sun
and the amount of light can be
regulated by humans.
The controlled environ-
ment is more efficient for
busy people who want a
tanned look but don't have the
time to lay out all day.
Yet, some researchers say
that using tanning beds .can
put users at a great risk of
cancer.
There is debate on both
sides.
Skin cancer is the most
common type of cancer, and
more than one million people
are diagnosed with cancer
each year.
The three types of skin can-
cer include basal cell cancer
which is the most common,
squamous cell cancer and
melanoma, the least common
but deadliest.
Experts at Dartmouth
Medical School examined
more than 1,400 people who
were questioned about their
tanning methods.
They diagnosed almost 900
patients with basal or squa-


mous cell cancer.
The experts found that
those using tanning beds
were 2.5 times more likely to
have skin cancer.
In addition, the study found
that for each decade younger
the patient was when he or
she first used a tanning
device, the patient was 20 per-
cent likelier to get squamous
cell cancer and 10 percent
more likely to get basal cell
cancer.
These types of cell cancer
require surgery as treatment.
The study suggests that
devices such as tanning beds
can contribute to this prob-
lem.
Tanned skin serves as a
defense mechanism against
damage from ultraviolet light.
Skin that is tanned repeat-
edly ages earlier and has a
much higher risk of develop-
ing skin cancer.
Some sun exposure is bene-
ficial.
People feel better on sun-
nier days than cloudy days.
Sun light can increase the
production of vitamin D.
Pregnant women should
avoid too much sun because
increased hormone activity
can make their skin more sen-
sitive than normal.
Tanning beds are said to be
safer than direct sunlight in
one respect because they
reduce the risks of overheat-
ing, but they also are said to
increase ultraviolet radiation.
This can cause premature
aging of the skin and an

increased risk of cancer.
Tan USA owner Gary
Bedford believes tanning
beds are safer than laying out
under direct sunlight.
'Tanning beds are actually
safer because you can regu-
late the time," he said.
He allows his customers to
tan for 20-minute sessions,
however the customer can


shorten their time.
"I have some people who
want to come every day, even
twice a day," he said. "It gets
addictive."
Bedford says that men
make up 40 percent of his
business.
Kathy Lewis' business,
Designer Tan, offers airbrush
tanning as an alternative to


tanning outdoors or using tan-
ning beds.
"Since opening in May of
2003, I have had absolutely
wonderful business," she
said. "Airbrush tanning is
approved by the Federal Drug
Administration and is even
safe for pregnant women."
Studies show that too much
exposure to ultraviolet radia-

tion from the sun or from tan-
ning beds can be harmful.
The amount of damage
depends on the type of UV
light and the amount of time
of the exposure which is
cumulative over a lifetime in
regards to cancer.
Additionally, the intensity
of radiation and the skin's tol-
erance to UV rays are also fac-
tors.
UV radiation is divided into
two types, A and B.
The first affects the deep
layers on the skin and can
damage it's immunity.
When this happens, it is
easier for skin cancer to form.
It also cause premature
wrinkling.
Tanning beds are shown to
be a source of UVA.
UVB is the type of radiation
that causes painful sunburns
and is often the source of
basal cell carcinoma and
squamous cell carcinoma.

WHAT NEW FOR LUNCHTIME
LASER RESURFACING?
The latest laser resurfacing
treatment to be approved by the
FDA for wrinkles around the eyes,
age spots, and rough skin is
Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing.
Nicknamed Fraxel, it involves
considerably less recovery time,
redness, and discomfort than the
high-powered C02 resurfacing
laser. The innovative aspect of
Fraxel is that the laser beam is split
into thousands of microscopic
treatment zones, selectively heating
tiny dots of skin. This pixilated
effect, which is not visible to the
naked eye, encourages healthy new
skin cells to quickly fill the damaged
areas between treated spots. Healing
is much faster than when the whole
top layer of skin is removed. Several
treatments leave skin rejuvenated.
Good medical care requires a
partnership between the health care
staff and the patient. At
GAINESVILLE DERMATOLOGY
&L SKIN SURGERY, we want you
to understand as much as possible
about your skin, and about any
recommended treatments. We are
willing to work with you to evaluate
and treat any skin problems that
works best for you and how you care
for your body. Our offices are
conveniently located at 114 N.W.
76"' Drive and we can be reached by
calling 332-4442. New patients are
welcome.
P.S. While Fractional Laser Skin
Resurfacing is more i, 'I .',"
than the more powerful C02 laser
resurfacing technique, it may not
tackle deeper wrinkles as
successfully.

CHS starts football


TIM KIRBY/Lake City Reporter
Columbia High head football coach Danny Green talks to his
players after the first day of spring practice on Monday.


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter. corn
Columbia High football began its quest for
continued success with spring practice on
Monday.
The players will spend three days in shorts
and two days in pads this week, with a scrim-
mage planned for Friday.
"A lot of things went good for the first day of
practice, but we were not as organized as I
think we will be," CHS head coach Danny
Green told the Columbia County Quarterback'
Club on Monday. "We got in a little bit of con-
ditioning and a lot of teaching."
Columbia had 113 11th-, 10th- and ninth-
graders practicing on the varsity, but Green
was disappointed with the junior varsity
turnout.
'The numbers were not as high as I antici-
pated with the JV," Green said. "We had 52 out
and were expecting 70-71. We did not do any-


thing with equipment for the eighth-graders.
They will probably get one week in pads and
finish up after our scrimmage on May 13."
Several players new to football were in the
mix and a few coaches were back in harness
after some time away from the practice field.
"Our coaches targeted athletes who had
never played before, and I was pleased they
showed up," Green said. 'They are kind of raw.
A lot of kids have not played in our offense
before, and the coaches assumed they were
more familiar with our offense before we start-
ed. Our coaches are not used to working with
those numbers."
Green said they are trying to have a sopho-
more group on offense and defense. The
group would work as a team, and there would
be replacements on both sides of the ball.
"Spring is hard for the kids," Green said. "I
am pleased with the numbers, and we would
like to keep them up there. Our goal is 150 in
the program this year."

By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia High baseball
continued its 2005 mastery
over Lee High with a 9-6 win
in the opening round of the
District 6-4A tournament.
Middleburg High is hosting
the tournament and Columbia
will play the Middleburg/
Paxon School winner on
Wednesday 4 p.m. if it is
Paxon and 7 p.m. if it is
Middleburg.
'We found a way to win, but
A we kicked the ball around-and
3* were lackadaisical,",CHS head
coach Andy Bennett said. 'We
aren't going to be able to play
like that and continue to win."
Columbia busted the game
open with six runs in the sec-
ond inning and did not have to
work too hard to get them.
Josh Boris singled and later
scored on an error. With the
bases loaded, Cory Burk,
Chris Schneiders and Hunter
Allen walked in runs and
Austin Peters and Boris had
back-to-back fielder's choices
that scored runs.
In the first inning, Eric
Brooks drew a two out walk,
and Schneiders and Allen fol-
lowed with singles to score
courtesy runner Seth Carter.
Rolfe singled in the third
inning and moved to third on
two wild pitches..He scored
COURTESY PHOTO on a sacrifice fly by Burk.
Columbia's final fun came in
the fourth on singles by Allen,
Peters and Boris.
