Man found not guilty of murder


Jury took an hour to
render verdict of not
guilty to Lake City man.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
A jury found a Lake City


-man not guilty of murder
Tuesday after an hour of
deliberation.
James E. Register was
charged with second-degree
murder in the 2002 shooting
death of George Martin
Sceals. Register, 35, was fac-
ing the possibility of a life


sentence.
"I was real proud of the
jury," said Herb Ellis,
Register's court-appointed
attorney.
"The state just didn't have
the evidence and Mr.
Register didn't do the crime,

Captain Wallace Kitchings takes questions during a traffic crash investigation refresh-

FHP sheriff's deputies partner

By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter. corn
In an effort to facilitate a
closer working relation-
ship, the Columbia County
Sheriff's Office and
Florida Highway Patrol
teamed up for refresher
courses on wreck investi-
gations.
Held at the sheriff's
office's new operations
center, FHP Sgt. Chet

ed the classes for all

Sheriff's deputies
received wreck-response
education during their
training to be an officer,
but the weeklong series of
courses are meant to


update them 'on any new
forms or regulations they
may not be familiar with,
FHP Maj. Rick Carpenter
said.
Carpenter and Sheriff
Bill Gootee discussed the
idea of their agencies con-
ducting such a class short-
ly after Gootee took office.
Carpenter said of his
three years working in
Lake City, no such collabo-
ration had taken place
before. In his previous
experience with FHP,

The trial lasted two days.
During the two-day trial,
more than.30 witnesses tes-
tified.
The state called 20 wit-
nesses and the defense
attorney called 11, including
a medical and firearms


expert.
Sceals' body was found
Sept. 17, 2002 floating face
down in a muddy creek near
the trails of the Double Bar
Pits off U.S. 441 near
Interstate 10.
Sceals died from a bullet

Naval petty officer,
father of two disabled
after fighting in Iraq.
By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter. corn
Fort White resident and
serviceman Peter Herrick will
soon return home after more
than a year recovering from
injuries sustained in Iraq.
Herrick is a Navy petty offi-
cer third class in the
Jacksonville-based Naval
Mobile Construction
Battalion 14, more commonly
known as "Seabees." He has
been at the James A. Haley
Veterans Affair Medical
Center in Tampa for about 11
months and is scheduled to
arrive home next week on
Wednesday.
"I am looking forward to it.
It's going to be pretty incredi-
ble," Herrick said in a tele-
phone interview Wednesday.
"I've been gone about 14
months now away from home,
and they've been doing stuff
at the house to get it ready for
me already. I am just looking
forward to it."
Injured a year ago this
week, the 38-year-old husband
and father of two has under-
gone about 10 major surgeries
and as many more smaller
procedures, along with endur-
ing months of intense physical
therapy.
Herrick received his
injuries on May 2, 2004 after
his military compound in
Iraq's Al Anbar province came
under fire from insurgents.
According to the Navy, as a
result of the attack, in which
34 servicemen were wounded
and five died, Herrick lost his


left leg below the knee, as well
as suffered multiple shrapnel
wounds and a broken neck,
which caused partial paraly-
sis.
After emergency surgeries
in Germany, Herrick returned
to the United States to the
National Naval Medical
Center in Bethesda, Md.,
where doctors did not initially
expect him to recover. At first,
he breathed with the help of a
respirator and had his heart
rhythm kept in check with a
pacemaker, both of which
have since been removed.
Having to be intubated
(breathing tube placed down
the throat) for a respirator
three times while conscious
over the year, Herrick said, it
was a "absolutely my worst
memory, a terrible experi-
ence."
Though he is getting
"stronger and stronger," over
the past year, his condition
went through periods of ups
and downs. After every major
surgery, he found himself
having to again fight back to
stable health, but never failing
to do so.
"He is strong," said wife
Diane. "He was very strong
physically before and I would
say now, definitely, very men-
tally strong. But I think some
of his physical strength before
had a lot to do with saving his
life."
Though he has been under
heavy medication for much of
the time since his injuries,
Herrick said he is "pretty
much aware" of what he has
been through.

Students prepare for
musical based on a
1970s cartoon.

By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
The functions of conjunc-
tions and excitement of inter-
jections will be explained
musically this weekend by
Columbia High School stu-
dents.
The Columbia High School
Drama Department and cho-
rus will put on the musical
production "School House
Rock," a musical take-off from


a series of 1970s cartoon com-
mercials.
The production will take
place 7:30 p.m., Friday and
Saturday at the Richardson
Middle School Auditorium,
646 SE Pennsylvania St.
General admission is $5 for
adults and $3 for students.
Megan Burch, 17, the stu-
dent-director of the play, who
also plays the role of Georgia
said the production will fea-
ture six on-stage characters
and have 14 off-stage support
crew members.
Carey Mathews, a 15-year-
old ninth-grader, will also take
part in the musical. He said he
was excited about the upcom-


ing performance.
"I love performing in musi-
cals," he said. "I'm hoping to
do a career in it. I'm looking
forward to having a lot of kids
in the audience because they
are always more fun to per-
form for. I think we're ready
for the performance because
we've come together a lot in
the last three days."
The "School House Rock"
Production will last about 90
minutes.
Burch said they decided to
do "School House Rock"
because it's a musical
designed for a small cast.
"We were trying to find
something with a smaller cast


because there are four seniors
and two freshman in the pro-
duction, so we wanted some-
thing that was easy to learn
because a lot of the people
don't have a lot of experience
with theater," she said. "It's
good because I think it will
attract a variety of people."
The cast and crew has been
practicing for the upcoming
production for about two
months, after having open
auditions for the parts earlier
in the year.
"I've always thought theater
is really good for people
because there are so many
things behind it," Burch said.
"It's more than just acting.

County officials look to DOT



for highway improvements


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter. corn
The Florida Department of
Transportation is looking to
help Columbia County
improve its roads through
one of its small county pro-
grams.
County officials are expect-
ed to provide a list of roads
that has been nominated for
improvement during tonight's
county commission meeting,
at the Columbia School Board
Administrative Complex


Auditorium, 372 W. Duval St.
The deadline for submit-
ting the list is May 15.
The Small County
Outreach Program, in addi-
tion to the Small County Road
Assistance Program, is fund-
ed through the state and pro-
vides for the Florida DOT to
fund 75 percent of the costs of
these projects.
The SCOP program was
created during the 2000 leg-
islative session.
Any of the county's unim-


proved secondary or local
roads qualify under the pro-
gram's guidelines, but DOT
officials suggest that roads
with the highest needs be
placed on the list and then
officials select the one with
the greatest cost, as a candi-
date for the project.
The roadwork for the
selected project would then
be added to the DOT's 2006-
07 fiscal funding year budget.
The projects selected will
be limited to resurfacing or


reconstruction.
While the DOT anticipates
funding for the 2006-07 fiscal
year's project, the program's
funding is subject to continua-
tion of the law and funding
from the appropriations
process.
In other business, commis-
sioners are also scheduled to
discuss updates in the coun-
ty's drug-free workplace poli-
cy and the new costs for
medical examiner services
for autopsies.

A marijuana plant shown
here is one of two that was
found in the front yard of the
future office of a veterans'
newsletter.
New residents
find suspicious
plants in yard
Paul Necessary recently
moved to Lake City from
Montana in order to start a
Florida-based newsletter for
veterans. While renovating
the newsletter's future office
on McFarlane Avenue, he
found a suspicious looking
plant in the yard on Tuesday.
What appears to be a mari-
juana plant was growing in
the dirt next to the building.
The Lake City Police
Department removed the
plant Wednesday morning,
Necessary said.
Necessary and Marty


Bennett, who also moved
from Montana to work on the
newsletter, found another
small plant growing in a cin-
der block in the front yard
Wednesday.
Necessary said because
the building used to be a res-
idence, he thinks someone
may have had marijuana
there and dropped some
seeds, which eventually grew
into plants. Lake City Police
took as evidence the first
plant Necessary found.

Man arrested for
laundering,
animal cruelty
A Georgia man was arrest-
ed Tuesday by Florida
Highway Patrol after a traffic
stop led to the discovery by
troopers of large amounts of
money and a dead puppy in
his vehicle.
A Lake City-based trooper
pulled over Juan C.
Hernandez, 26; of Atlanta
about five miles south of
Gainesville for speeding.
Hernandez began acting
nervous and two more troop-
ers, including a K-9 unit,
responded, according to an


FHP news release.
Troopers searched
Hernandez's vehicle arid
found $7,300 in cash in the
car, along with $2,000 in his
pants pocket and $970 in his
wallet, according to the
release.
A dead puppy was also
found in Hernandez's vehi-
cle, according to the release.
After investigation, one of the
troopers determined the
puppy had been alive earlier
in the day, but did not have
access to water.
The cash was seized and
Hernandez was taken to the
Alachua County Jail. He is
being charged under the
Florida Money Laundering
Act and with cruelty to ani-
mals and speeding.

Special election

needs attention
T he registered voters of Lake
City need to rise up and take
the upcoming special election
for mayor seriously. So far,
there's been lackluster interest
shown by the community. No one seems
excited about any of the five candidates
running for the vacant office.
Four of the five candidates have lacklus-
ter pasts, but that being the facts, we still
must elect a mayor on Tuesday. We need a
mayor with the proper vision and leader-
ship and we also need a mayor who can
behave himself or herself in the public
arena.
So far, no one seems inspired by the
candidates in the race and very few people
even acknowledge that a race for the
mayor's seat is ongoing. It's not even a
brisk walk, much less a race, even though
some candidates are working harder than
others to get the people's attention.
This is not the time for the Lake City
electorate to fall asleep and let an opportu-
nity for the city's advancement to slip
away. People must step up and pay atten-
tion to the government world around
them .
We have five candidates who say they
want the job and who have made the effort
to file, spend the time and money, and run
for office. They continue to preach from
their platforms. It's our obligation to show
an interest, to listen and make informed
choices at the polls.
Because, like it or not, or inspired by
these individuals or not, one of these can-
didates will be our next mayor.

Today is Thursday, May 5, the 125th day.
of 2005. There are 240 days left in the year.
Today's Highlight in History:
On May 5, 1961, astronaut Alan B.
Shepard Jr. became America's first space
traveler as he made a 15-minute sub-orbital
flight in a capsule launched from Cape
Canaveral, Fla.
On this date:
In 1821, Napoleon Bonaparte died in exile
on the island of St. Helena.
In 1862, Mexican forces loyal to Benito
Juarez defeated French troops sent by
Napoleon III in the Battle of Puebla.
In 1925, Jon T. Scopes was arrested in
Tennessee for teaching Darwin's theory of
evolution.
In 1942, during World War II, Japanese
forces landed on the Philippine island of
Corregidor.
In 1945, in the only fatal attack of its kind
during World War II, a Japanese balloon
bomb exploded on Gearhart Mountain in
Oregon, killing the pregnant wife of a minis-
ter and five children.
In 1955, West Germany became a sover-
eign state.
In 1955, the baseball musical "Damn
Yankees" opened on Broadway.
In 1980, a siege at the Iranian embassy in .
London by armed men demanding the
release of political prisoners in Iran ended as
British commandos and police stormed the
building. Nineteen hostages were rescued;
two others had already been killed by their
captors; four of the five hostage-takers also
were killed.
In 1981, Irish Republican Army hunger-
striker Bobby Sands died at the Maze Prison
in Northern Ireland in his 66th day without
food.
In 1985, President Reagan kept a promise
to West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl by
leading a wreath-laying ceremony at the mil-


itary cemetery in Bitburg.
Ten years ago: As rescue workers ended
their search for bodies in the Oklahoma City
bombing, President Clinton denounced self-
styled anti-government militias.


Do you believe the new child sex
offender law makes kids safer from
criminals?

"First-time offenders
should get life in prison.
If they did it once, they'll
do it again. I don't think
the new law makes chil-
dren any safer."

"Yes I think the track-
ing bracelet will work to
ensure that it doesn't
happen again."
Derek Varnes, 17
Lake City


"It's up to the parents
to make sure their chil-
dren are in safe situations
and it's up to them to
teach them how to be
safe. The new law doesn't '
make children any safer ..
from first-time offend- t
ers."

Elaine Chambers, 70
Lake City



: 'The new laws may
help some but not much.
I say just string them up
the first time and get it
over with."

Charles Harvey, 54
..i ,Wellborn





"Something more
severe needs to be done. :
This new law may help
but it doesn't solve the "
problem. It doesn't help *
the victims of first-time
offenders. It doesn't ,." ,
bring them back."

Allyson Scofield, 26
Lake City




"'This law only helps
after the fact and then it's
too late. It doesn't help
make children any safer
from first time offend-
S ers."
Jason Tilley, 22

Art work honoring




'boneyard' will be




dedicated Friday


By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter. corn

Aunt Aggie would be
proud.
On Friday at noon, the
city's Beautification
Committee will dedicate art-
work honoring Aunt Aggie's
Boneyard, a turn-of-the centu-
ry local attraction, that has
been placed on a wall of a
building at North Marion
Avenue and Railroad Street.
The art is several large
sheets of plywood that were
painted by art students of
Cindi Hiers at Fort White
High School and a social stud-
ies class of Onjena Ben-
Avari's at Richardson Middle
School.
They are intended to fea-
ture styles and subjects repre-
sentative of the boneyard,
which was a popular attrac-
tion in north Lake City in the
late 19th and early 20th cen-
turies.
'"This history of Aunt Aggie
should not be lost to us in
modern day Lake City as
many of the plants, shrubs
and vines we have in our town
originated from her garden,"
said Rose E. Grier, local artist
and Beautification Committee
member who coordinated the
project.
"In getting the students
involved in this project and
letting their art be displayed
as a source of community his-
tory, I believe, will encourage
them to have pride in their
city and potentially be moved
to invest their time and tal-
ents locally in the future.
Their art will continue to
keep Aunt Aggie's Boneyard
in our collective conscious-
ness for decades to come."
Aunt Aggie Jones is said to
have been an ex-slave who
moved with her husband,
Jenkins (Uncle Jenks) to
Lake City in 1883.
They established their
home at a site which is
believed to be just north of
the wall were the students
artwork has been placed.
The Richardson
Community Center is there

In the 1880s, 'Aunt' Aggie Jones had a unique collection of
animal bones in her garden that attracted visitors on
Sunday afternoons.


now, preceded by Richardson
High School.
Aggie used animal bones
that were wired together and
assembled in designs to form
gateways, trellises, arches
and sculptures to decorate a
garden of flowers and plants
featuring paths of white sand.
It is said to have been a
popular place for both chil-
dren and people who were
dating, or "courting," rather.
Grier said the students at
Fort White High and
Richardson Middle read a
book on Aunt Aggie and her
boneyard to identify aspects
of her life they would want the
public to be aware of and in a
style befitting her.
Each student at Fort White
High participating in the proj-
ect then sketched an image
from Aggie's story using the
only five available post cards
Grier found at Rowand's Mini-
Mall and Antique Store as ref-
erences.
Ben-Avari's students at


Richardson Middle designed
a "bone" font for a sign read-
ing "Aunt Aggie's Boneyard,"
and paint many colorful flow-
ers like those that Aggie was
famous for giving her many
visitors. That sign now hangs
above the other student's art-
work.
Grier said she is hoping
similar projects can be done
each year with different
schools and students getting
involved.
At Friday's dedication, Vice
Mayor George Ward will give
a welcome, followed by a
short history of Aunt Aggie
presented by Beautification
Committee member Bettye
Lane. Students will also be
recognized by Grier, Ben-
Avari and Hiers, some of
which will make comment on
their work.
Grier said the project
required students to work
together and collaborate on
their ideas, that "all had to be
part of the whole."


FHP urges safety on highways


during Cinco de Mayo holiday


By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter. corn

Margaritas may be a Cinco
de Mayo staple, but after
drinking down a few, Florida
Highway Patrol wants party
animals to stay off the roads.
'There are a lot of alcohol-
related deaths at this time of
year," said Lt. Mike
Burroughs, FHP
spokesman.
The National ,Highway
Traffic Safety Administration
found that since 1999, an
average of more than 40 per-
cent of highway deaths each
year on May 5 and the early
morning of May 6 involved
alchohol-impaired drivers.
Due to these findings,
FHP is beefing up on Cinco
de Mayo patrols.
In Columbia County,
squads usually out for spe-
cial enforcement periods,
like Operation Safe Streets,
will be out in full force, espe-
cially in areas where
impaired drivers are often

stopped.
"We want to have a strong
visibility that day,"
Burroughs said.
Like St. Patrick's Day,
Cinco de Mayo has become a
holiday heartily celebrated
in the United States though
its origins are elsewhere.
Cinco de Mayo is not
Mexico's independence day,
which falls on Sept. 16, but it
does celebrate a victory over
the French, who had tried to
annex Mexican land in 1862.
The holiday is mostly cele-
brated in the Mexican state
of Puebla, where the battle
victory took place.
In the United States, Cinco
de Mayo has become
increasingly embraced by
both Mexican-Americans
and non-Mexican-
Americans.
The increase in drinking
and driving associated with
the holiday can be seen in
the NHTSA's findings.
Increased patrols aren't just
a local move officers nation-

wide are preparing for the
holiday. Burroughs said any-
one celebrating Cinco de
Mayo should take safety pre-
cautions.
"Plan for a designated driv-
er and anyone who hosts a
celebration should serve
.food and make sure no one
who has been drinking gets
behind the wheel," he said.
Failure to celebrate safely
could be costly, both in time
and money, for a driving
under the influence charge.
"For a first time DUI, by
the time all fines and fees are
paid, it can cost from $7,000
to $12,000.
The cost of a taxi ride is
much less," Burroughs said.
And if a fatal wreck occurs
the penalty to alcohol-
impaired drivers, and in
some cases passengers, can
be worse.
"The sentence for DUI
manslaughter can be five to
15 years, depending on the
severity of the situation,"
Burroughs said.


BRIEFS _

Lawmakers send sales

tax holidays to Bush


Associated Press


TALLAHASSEE State
lawmakers passed legislation
Wednesday to give shoppers a
break on the 6-cerit sales tax
on hurricane supplies in early
June and on clothes, books
and school supplies in late
July.
Unanimous votes in the
Senate sent the two bills,
already passed by the House,
to Gov. Jeb Bush, who sup-


ports them both.
One tax break would go to
shoppers who are buying hur-
ricane supplies like radios,
flashlights, batteries, coolers,
tarps and generators. The
sales tax holiday, which cov-
ers the last nine days of July,
would apply to clothes priced
$50 and less, school supplies
priced $10 and less and
books. It would cost state and
local government an estimat-
ed $38 million.

was short-term memory loss. I
remember the details, the
struggles that we've gone
through," he said.
"I've had a problem remem-
bering everything, but I
remember all of the major sur-
geries that we've been
through."
Herrick says "we" when
referring to his experiences
because since May 8 of last
.year, his wife has been at his
side. She has been home all of
four days to Fort White during
the past year.
'We talk about it a lot, my
wife and I, everything we've
been through," he said. "I really
put my faith in God to pull me
through because it's a miracle.
The injuries I have and the sur-
geries I went through ... the
complications. I probably
escaped death close to 20 times,
so really it's amazing."


In the past few weeks,
Herrick's father-in-law Chuck
Wilder and others have been
busy trying to prepare the fam-
ily's home for a hero's return.
This Saturday, he said,, more
than 60 people, many from their
church family, will help to get
the home ready for Herrick and
his family.
One of the projects Wilder
has undertaken is to convert
Herrick's bathroom into a roll-
in shower to accommodate a
wheelchair.
Diane said she is "very excit-
ed" that she and her husband
will return home to Fort White
and be with their children,
Shayla, 19, and Drew, 15, as a
family again.
"Nervous, but very excited,"
she said. "We are ready to see
something beside hospital
walls, but as far as the treat-
ment he has gotten and the sup-
port, it has been phenomenal."
Diane said that the VA staff,
the Navy, Herrick's fellow
Seabees and charitable organi-


zations have all supported and
encouraged her husband and
her.
And the support in Fort
White, from the community
and their church, has been
extraordinary, she said. A for-
mer employer of Herrick's in
Gainesville also held a fundrais-
er for their children to establish
a fund for their college educa-
tion.
'The support we have
received so far without even
being there has been amazing,"
Herrick said. "It's actually given
me a better faith in people,
because over the past year I
have met so many wonderful
people.]
For the past year Wilder has
been e-mailing people updates
on Herrick's condition about
every two weeks.
At Pope's Grocery Store in
the Three Rivers Estates area,
owner Becky Wilder has kept
those e-mails on the counter.
Customers read them to follow
Herrick's progress.


She also put a jar up on the
counter for people to donate
funds to help the Herricks.
While their parents were
gone, Shayla, who will start at
Santa Fe Community College in
the fall, and Drew, who recently
was inducted into the National
Honor Society at Fort White
High School, have stayed with
Wilder and his wife Sue.
"They are very excited that
we are coming home," Diane
said. "It won't be the same nor-
mal, but we will make a new
normal. We look forward get-
ting back to church and the
community and the people
who've waiting for us to come
home."
Before his arrival Herrick
said he wanted to "just thank
everybody for their support
and let them know we are doing
'fine."
"What we have been through
is pretty much everybody's
worst nightmare, but the sup-
port we have received has been
really helpful."

of close relationship with
other local law enforcement
agencies.
"It's a refreshing change,"
Carpenter said. "Rural areas
are tough," he said.
Both Carpenter and Gootee
said the main purpose of the
training sessions is to save
the public time.
Instead of waiting some-
times for more than a half
hour for a busy FHP trooper,
those involved in a moderate
crash on a county road is met
earlier by a well-trained
deputy.
"As a citizen waiting on an
officer after a crash, this is in
fairness to them, so the sher-
iff's office can respond,"
Carpenter said.
Currently, when a wreck is
reported via 911, it is the
sheriff's office's responsibili-
ty if it occurred outside of
city limits. The sheriff's
office then will either work
the wreck or turn it over to
FHP if it's serious and
injuries are involved.

gations has never been a
problem, but FHP and the
sheriff's office wants to make
the process even easier. "It's
just a matter of communicat-
ing with each other," Gootee
said.
Carpenter's FHP district
also includes Hamilton and
Suwannee counties, but
Columbia, being more popu-
lated, sees more serious
wrecks every year, he said.
In 2004, there were 1,339


wrecks that FHP responded
to, 764 of which involved seri-
ous injury.
Though fatal and serious
wrecks are FHP's territory,
helping to train sheriff's
deputies is another way the
two agencies are. looking to
increase their connection.
"We're all police officers,
that's the bottom line.
"We just wear different
color uniforms,"' Carpenter
said.

him Ill I

Playoffs are

heating up

he first round
of NBA Playoff
action is almost
complete (final-
ly!), and
despite some one-sided out-
comes, many series were
closer than expected.
For instance, the New
Jersey Nets twice took the
Miami Heat into overtime
before succumbing on the
way to the Heat's four-game
sweep. The San Antonio
Spurs were on the verge of
closing out the Denver
Nuggets late Wednesday,
but they had been in a battle
in each of their last two wins.
The Detroit Pistons
defeated the Philadelphia
76ers 4-1, but each game
was closely contested.
Seattle beat Sacramento 4-1,
but that series also featured
several close games that
weren't decided until the
final two minutes.
All in all, it was an excit-
ing round, with Washington
and Chicago still needing to
decide their series, which
the Wizards led 3-2. Also,
the Indiana Pacers took a 3-
2 series lead over Boston in
the other Eastern
Conference series.
In the West, the only
series in which there was
no doubt was the Phoenix
Suns' sweep of the
Memphis Grizzlies. And the
Dallas Mavericks are on the
verge of winning four
straight after the Houston
Rockets took a 2-0 lead in
their best-of-seven series.
That means the second
round of the playoffs should
be even more competitive.
The Pistons would face the
winner of the Pacers-Celtics
series in Round 2, and what
a story it would be if
Indiana was the participant
with memories still fresh of
the "Brawl at Auburn Hills"
earlier this year.
Miami faces the
Washington-Chicago winner
in another series that could
be interesting.
Out west, Phoenix will
play the winner of Dallas-
Houston, which should be
an up-tempo feast for the
eyes. Seattle will likely play
San Antonio in a series in
which the Spurs' size
should triumph over Sonics
jump shooters.
The conference finals
might come down to Detroit-
Miami and San Antonio-
Phoenix, the four best teams
in the NBA this season.
There have also been
some spectacular perform-
ances so far in the first
round. Seattle's Ray Allen
was brilliant in Game 4 of
the Sacramento series
when he scored 43 points
on lights-out shooting.
Reggie Miller has turned
back the clock to 1995 in
the Pacers' series against
Boston, scoring 28 and 33
in back-to-back wins. Allen
Iverson and his Sixers may
have been knocked out by
the defending champs, but
it wasn't The Answer's fault.
A.I. averaged 31.2 points
per game in the series loss,
and the point guard rang up
37 points and 15 assists in
Philly's only win in Game 3.
And Dwyane Wade had a
terrific all-around series
against New Jersey with 26
points, 8.8 assists, 6
rebounds and nearly 2 steals
per game.
So much for the decline
of the NBA this season.

Lady Tigers host playoffs today


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
After a one-year hiatus,
Columbia High softball is
returning to the state playoffs.
The Lady Tigers host First
Coast High at 7 p.m. today.
Since coach Mary Hale's
return to CHS in 2001,
Columbia has made the play-
offs four of the five years and
has posted a 2-3 record.
Columbia (23-3) won the
District 6-4A championship
this season
and also
was district
champ in
2001-02.
First
Coast (15-
9) was run-
ner-up in
District 5, which was won by
Bishop Kenny High.
"They are pretty evenly
matched with us, but up and
down the lineup and on the
bench I think we are the bet-
ter all-around team," Hale
said. "We have more maturity
than they do."
There are six seniors start-
ing for CHS Brittany
Johnston, Marie Croft, Rachel
Parker, Megan Bart, Jenna
Payne and Jamie Daniels.
Other starters, Chelsea Blair,
Kori Drake, Amber Stormant
and Ashley Stalnaker, have
varsity experience.
"We are battling with the end
of the year distractions like
graduation and the question is
can we let go of those distrac-

tions for a couple of hours,"
Hale said. "We have got to get
out there and stay focused."
Winning district can bring
on a letdown, but Hale said
practice was good on Tuesday.


"We have to keep the
momentum going," Hale said.
"If we come out with as much
enthusiasm as we did for the
Middleburg game (district
final), we should be OK."


Admission for today's game
is $6, as set by the FHSAA.

The Columbia-Middleburg


District 6-4A semifinal playoff

The game will be played

Race week

NEXTEL CUP
Dodge Charger 500
Site: Darlington, S.C.
Schedule: Friday, qualifying (SPEED,
5 p.m.); Saturday, race (FOX, 7 p.m.).
Track: Darlington Raceway (egg-
shaped oval, 1.366 miles, 25 degrees bank-
ing in turns 1-2, 23 degrees in turns 3-4).
Race distance: 500 miles, 367 laps.
Last race: Jeff Gordon fought off chal-
lenger after challenger on the way to win-
ning the Aaron's 499. Gordon led 139 of the
194 laps. He finally held off Tony Stewart
and Michael Waltrip at the end of a two-lap
shootout, set up by a six-car crash with one
lap remaining in regulation that ended the
chances of Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Last year: Jimmie Johnson got the lead
with a fast pit stop and held off a challenge
from Bobby Labonte to win the Carolina
Dodge Dealers 400 at Darlington Raceway.
Labonte was leading by half a straightaway
over Kurt Busch with 19 laps remaining
before being slowed by a caution flag.
Fast facts: Series points leader Jimmie
Johnson, unable to avoid a wild 25-car
crash, finished 20th in the Aaron's 490. His
lead over Kurt Busch in the season stand-
ings has dwindled from 173 points to 130.
Gordon moved from fourth to third, 151
back.... Dl)arlington, the unique egg-shaped
oval, is nicknamed '"Too Tough To Tame."
... The last time a Dodge car, driven by
Sterling Marlin, won at Darlington was
March 17, 2002. Chevrolet has won four
and Pontiac has won once since then.
Next race: Chevy American Revolution

BUSCH SERIES
Diamond Hill Plywood 200
Site: Darlingtqn, S.C.
Schedule: Friday, qualifying (SPEED,
3:30 p.m.): Friday, race (FX, 8 p.m.).
Track: Darlington Raceway (egg-
shaped oval, 1.366 miles, 25 degrees bank-
ing in turns 1-2, 23 degrees in turns 3-4).
Race distance: 200 miles, 150 laps.
Last race: Martin Truex won his second
consecutive Busch Series race at Talladega
Superspeedway. Truex battled back after
an early accident damaged his Chevrolet.
Then he avoided several other crashes, a
flurry of late cautions and survived an
intense overtime finish. With Kerry
Earnhardt right on his rear bumper, Truex
jumped out on the restart of the three-lap
overtime and pulled away.

Last year: Greg Biffle overcame a slow
pit stop in the early going and drove away
with a victory in the Diamond Hill Plywood
200. Biffle beat Roush Racing teammate
Jeff Burton to the finish line by 3.115 sec-
onds a full straightaway on the 1.366-
mile, egg-shaped oval.
Fast facts: Brian Vickers will race in
both events, making this his first Busch
'Series start since winning the champi-

Ex-Gator to hold fishing -


tournament on May 14 ...


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityrepor ter.com
Celebrities who love golf
hold charity golf tourna-
ments. If you love fishing;
well, the option is obvious.
That was the thinking of
Tennessee Titans quarter-
back Doug Johnson, who is
hosting the Second Annual
Doug Johnson Reeling for
Kids Celebrity Fishing
Tournament at Steinhatchee
on May 14.
Entry fee is $150, with fish-
ing beginning at 7 a.m. The
weigh-in station opens at 3
p.m.
"I didn't want to do a golf
tournament, those are kind of
played out," Johnson said. "I
am a big offshore fisherman
- I have a big Parker off-
shore boat so I wanted to

Alachua County Boys and
Girls Clubs. Johnson's goal
for 2005 is to raise $50,000
and he has expanded the ben-
efit to Boys and Girls clubs in
other areas.
"Last year was the first
event and the first year is
always the toughest," Johnson
said. "We put together a com-
mittee, but I was real hands-
on with everything. I wanted
the first year to go really
smooth. We had people telling
us it was the smoothest tour-
nament they had seen in the
way it was run."
Johnson, the former Atlanta
Falcons quarterback, who
played quarterback at Florida
(and Buchholz High), invited
Gators and NFL players last
year and more are expected
for the event on May 14.
