The change of some
school administrators
is announced.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
As the 2004-05 school year
comes to an end, changes are
being made in the school dis-
trict for next year.
Tuesday night at the
Columbia County School
Board meeting, two of the first
changes within school district
administration was made.
Donna McAdams was
named the interim principal at
Melrose Park Elementary
School, effective July 1, and
Carol Alford was named the
school district's director of
transportation, effective
today.
McAdams, who has been an
educator for 12 years, and in
the school district for six
years, replaces Cesta
Newman who was not re-
appointed to the principal's
position.


"I'm excited about being
the new principal," she said. "I
love Melrose Park. I just know
working with staff over there
we can do some great things
at Melrose."
McAdams said she felt very
fortunate to
be chosen as
the principal
because
there were
several quali-
fied appli-
McAdams cants seek-
ing the posi-
: tion.
-- "I'm over-
whelmed,"
." she said. "It's
happened so
fast that I'm
.A just catching
Alford my breath."
Alford,
who has worked for the
school district for 25 years,
replaces Julian Singleton, who
retired.

Stephen M. Witt smiles with his wife, Jodi, at the Columbia County Supervisor of
Elections Office as he learns he won the office of Mayor of Lake City over oppo-
nent Glenel Bowden in a runoff election Tuesday. Witt won with 1,102 votes over
Bowden's 937.

after he defeated Glenel
Bowden in a relatively
close runoff election for
the job Tuesday.
When the final count

Memorial

Day events

scheduled

Joseph Banks, a
notable WWII vet, will
speak at event.
By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.com
A distinguished veteran and
author is scheduled to be the
keynote speaker for the First
Annual North Florida
Memorial Day Ceremony on
Monday.
Joseph Banks, who sur-
vived 49 World War II combat
missions and authored "A
Distant Prayer: Miracles of
the 49th Combat Mission," is
slated to address those who
attend the ceremony at 6 p.m.
Monday in the Alfonso Levy
Performing Arts Center at
Lake City Community
College. The event is co-spon-
sored by the North
Georgia/South Florida
Veterans Health System, Lake
City Reporter, Lake City
Community College, Spirit of
the Suwannee Music Park and
The Veteran's Voice.
Ironically, as attendees to
the free event will learn,
Banks was shot down in his
49th bombing mission over
Nazi-occupied parts of Europe
and was captured.
A flight engineer in an
Army Air Force B-17 bombing
wing stationed in Foggia, Italy,
Banks was the only member
of his flight crew to survive
after his plane was accidental-
ly bombed from above in
midair by a fellow American
bomber.
In a telephone interview
Monday from his home in
Jacksonville, Banks explained
that the bomber in front of his
had lost an engine and abrupt-
ly slowed down, putting his
bomber directly beneath as its
bombs were released. He was
the only one to survive the
explosion, using his parachute
to glide him back to earth.
"I bailed out, and they (Nazi
troops) were waiting for me
when I came down over
enemy territory," he said.
Captured, Banks spent
about nine months in a Nazi
prisoner of war camp before
leading three fellow POWs on
an escape across Germany.
'The four of us escaped," he

Ichetucknee working group


hears update on sinkholes
. ',J L- ,-_ :-C '-1 1 -- ,- -.'-, 2 .-


JASMINE RANGEL/Lake City Reporter
Hugh Thomas of the Florida Department of Agriculture shows the impact the agricultural
industry has on the Ichetucknee Springs Basin at a meeting on Tuesday. The Ichetucknee
Springs Basin Working Group hosted the meeting that included environmental experts from
around the area.


Experts share findings
with group that studies
the springs.
By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter.com
March was the month of
sinkholes in Columbia
County, with more than five
sinkholes opening along
Pinemount Road and more
around the county.
The sinkholes spurred
investigation by a number of
different environmental
researchers geologists,
water specialists and cave


divers to name a few.
Preliminary results of some of
their findings were presented
at the Ichetucknee Springs
Basin Working Group meet-
ing all day Tuesday at the
Columbia County Emergency
Operations Center.
The area the sinkholes are
in is the northern part of the
Ichetucknee Springs Basin.
Any water that enters the
sinkholes will likely affect
groundwater that eventually
flows to the Ichetucknee
River.
Jerry Murphy, of Dive Rite,
presented an overview of the
sinkholes' development. With


aerial and up-close photo-
graphs, Murphy showed the
development of Mimi's Sink,
which first opened on March
1, and secondary sinkholes
nearby.
Murphy said preliminary
data hasn't yet shown what
caused the Pinemount Road
sinkholes, but Jim Stevenson,
director of the working group,
said the pattern is indicative
of an underground cavern.
When the sinkholes first
opened, Mark Lander, envi-
ronmental health director of

LOCAL & STATE


LCCC campus comes




to Gilchrist County


"4
1.


By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter. corn

BELL Lake City
Community College students
who live in counties like
Gilchrist, Dixie or Levy face
an hour drive, more or less,
to go to class.
Though many classes can
now be taken over the
Internet, a number of sub-
jects, like nursing and sci-
ence, require hands-on expe-
rience.
With an idea concocted by
LCCC president Charles Hall
and LCCC Board of Trustee
member Jim Surrency, stu-
dents in counties south of


Columbia won't have to go far
to get their education.
Surrency and Hall want to
create a satellite LCCC cam-
pus in Gilchrist County. Right
now, land is available for the
center and plans have been
drawn, but the funding isn't
in place.
However, the community is
behind the plan, as evidenced
by a forum on the project
held at Bell Elementary
Tuesday night.
"We're going to be short-
changing our kids if we don't
have a center like this that
they have access to," said
Buddy Vickers, Gilchrist
County superintendent.


Other county leaders, like the
sheriff and council members,
echoed Vickers' opinion.
Currently, LCCC has no
other satellite campuses.
There are "storefront" type
centers in Dixie and Baker
counties, but they serve to
facilitate online classes, said
Charles Carroll, LCCC vice
president of student services.
The planned Gilchrist
County campus would
include classrooms and, later
on, facilities like administra-
tive offices and labs.
The planned site currently
houses portable classrooms
used by the county schools.
During phase one of the proj-


ect, a four-classroom building
would be built to be used by
the county schools during the
day and LCCC at night.
In phase two, the building
would be expanded and used
solely by LCCC.
.State representative
Dwight Stansel, who attend-
ed the meeting, was referred
to by Vickers and others
speaking about the project,
hinting at the need for state
funding. The estimated cost
for the initial four-classroom
building would be around
$800,000.
"We really want this project
to come to Gilchrist County,"
Carroll said.

Rare woodpecker 'sightings' creating problems for FWC


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter., corn

A species of woodpecker,
once thought extinct, is creat-
ing problems for the Florida
Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
FWC officials have received
more than a dozen calls over
the last month from local resi-
dents reporting they've seen
ivory-billed woodpeckers.
The ivory-billed woodpeck-
er was last seen in 1935 in
Arkansas and was thought to
be extinct, until it was spotted
February 2004. The informa-
tion was released through a
research paper last month.
"On April 26, the Ivory-
billed woodpecker, which was

until it was spotted in
February 2004.
widely believed to be extinct


and the last confirmed sight-
ing was over 60 years ago, was
found alive in Arkansas," said
Karen Parker, public informa-
tion coordinator for the FWC's
North Central region.
"It created huge news in
the birding world. They com-
pared it to like finding Elvis.
This thing truly is the Holy
Grail of the birding world."
There have been seven
ivory-billed woodpecker sight-
ings between 2004 and 2005,
where the birds were seen in
the Big, Woods Region of
Southern Arkansas.
However, because of its
close resemblance to the
pileated woodpecker, many
residents in the area are
reporting the ivory-billed


woodpecker is in this region.
'The problem is now every-
body is seeing the bird,"
Parker said. "We haven't got a
flood of calls, but we've gotten
several calls. When I try to
explain to them that they're
probably seeing a pileated
woodpecker, they get very
upset and refuse to speak any-
more."
The pileated woodpecker-is
among six species of wood-
peckers common to this area,
and closely resembles the
ivory-billed woodpecker. Both
species of woodpeckers are
large birds and have a red
crest on their heads and are
woodpeckers.
'The big difference
between the two is in the


pileated woodpecker, his back
is completely black when he's
sitting on the tree, the ivory-
billed woodpecker has white
stripes running down his back
and you can see the white tail
feathers when he's perched."
However, the last Florida
sighting of an ivory-billed
woodpecker was in 1924.
"It was in a cypress stand,
west of Tallahassee," Parker
said. "The bird was promptly
shot, stuffed and sold to the
University of Florida for
$150."
Parker said it took
researchers 23,000 hours to
get three seconds worth of
video of the ivory-billed wood-
pecker.
Yet, she said if residents


truly believe they have seen
an ivory-billed woodpecker,
they can send proof to the
FWC office.
"My contention is, just like
our elusive jaguarundi, if you
think you see one, send us a
picture," she said.
'"This is a truly elusive bird,
even for folks who are devot-
ing their lives looking for it. If
we do have them here, we def-
initely want to know about it,
but I highly doubt we do. It's
sort of like the elusive Big
Foot, jaguarundi creature run-
ning around."

Great to see

sheriff working

in the streets

This sheriff means business. So
does his staff of trained
deputies. We're proud to see
him cleaning up the county
and being very proactive
toward stifling crime and capturing thugs
wanted by the law.
Recently, Sheriff Bill Gootee, Maj. Mark
Hunter and Capt. Wallace Kitchings all par-
ticipated in capturing two jail escapees.
Three of the top members of the law
enforcement community in Columbia
County went above and beyond the call of
duty to make a weekend arrest.
They were on the job and they should
be commended.
Paul Unkle and Willie Yawn were
returned to jail thanks to an anonymous tip
and the efforts of the three members of
the Columbia County Sheriff's Office..
It's good to see the people in charge out
in the street working. That sends a mes-
sage to the county and the message, in
this case, is heard loud and clear.
We appreciate the-efforts of these law
enforcement officers and hope their strong
efforts continue.

T-iD[A]Y-I N1 1 T d Y

Today is Wednesday, May 25, the 145th
day of 2005. There are 220 days left in the
year.

Today's Highlight in History:

On May 25, 1787, the Constitutional
Convention was convened in Philadelphia
after enough delegates had shown up for a
quorum.

On this date:

In 1810, Argentina began its revolt
against Spain.
In 1844; the first telegraphed news dis-
patch, sent from Washington, D.C., to
Baltimore, appeared in the Baltimore
Patriot.
In 1895, playwright Oscar Wilde was
convicted of a morals charge in London; he
was sentenced to prison.
In 1935,:Babe Ruth hit the 714th and final
home run of his career for the Boston
Braves, in a game against the Pittsburgh
Pirates.
In 1946, Transjordan (now Jordan)
became a kingdom as it proclaimed its new
monarch, King Abdullah Ibn Ul-Hussein.
In 1961, President Kennedy asked the
nation to work toward putting a man on the
moon by the end of the decade.
In 1963, the Organization of African
Unity was founded, in Addis Ababa,
Ethiopia.
In 1968, the Gateway Arch, part of the
Jefferson National Expansion Memorial in
St. Louis, was dedicated.
In 1979, 275 people died when an
American Airlines DC-10 crashed on take-
off from Chicago's O'Hare airport.
In 1985, more than 11,000 people were
killed as a hurricane and tidal wave devas-
tated Bangladesh. ,
Ten years ago: NATO warplanes struck
Bosnian Serb headquarters. (Serbs
answered with swift defiance, storming
U.N. weapons depots, attacking safe areas
and taking peacekeepers as hostages.)
Five years ago: The government pro-
posed a rating system telling consumers
how prone vehicles are to rolling over.
Iranian state radio announced that former
President Hashemi Rafsanjani had
resigned from the incoming parliament,
depriving hard-liners of a leading figure.

I LETT'ER TO THE EITOR


Writer should
cherish freedom

In regard to the comments
by Mr. Nader G. Vakili in a let-
ter to the editor on May 18, I
would like to say that this
newspaper has improved ten-
fold since it has been pur-
chased by your organization.
There was a time when his
comments would never have
made it in print.
I would like to remind Mr.
Vakili that the founders of this
great country came with the
Bible under arm and not the
Koran. They were called
Christians and were not inter-
ested in being politically cor-
rect.
Because they hungered so
much for freedom they had
the foresight to form a
Constitution that would allow
freedom of religion as well as
the press.
However, I can assure you
that they had no intent for


people to come to this coun-
try forcing their ideas and
customs on Americans born
and raised here.
It is my feeling that the
present social behavior of our
citizens is an indication that
most of us are fed up with
behavior such as yours.
I believe this became very
clear by the choice of people
in the past presidential elec-
tion.
Perhaps you are unaware
that Christians have no rea-
son or desire to carry around
prayer rugs.
We do however acknowl-
edge your right to do so.
Having said this, I would
suggest if you are offended by
our Christian tradition that
you take your prayer rug and
go back to the peace and tran-
quility of the Mideast where
folks are randomly murdered
by maniacs with bombs
strapped on them taking the
lives of innocent people in the
name of Allah.

Thanks for food
drive assistance
Thank you to the Lake City
Post Office employees and
rural carriers who participat-
ed in the National Association
of Letter Carriers "Stamp Out
Hunger" Food Drive conduct-
ed May 14. This has become
the largest one-day food drive
in the nation and certainly
helps our local agencies
assisting with the food needs
of our community.
I certainly recognize the
extra work it is for the postal
carriers to collect this food.
On behalf of United Way of
Suwannee Valley, the recipi-
ent agencies, I extend my sin-
cere appreciation for your
dedication to helping those in
need in our community.
Rita Dopp, director

Zucchini: Don't knock it until you try it


By SUSAN SLOAN
Special to the Reporter

If you're not a zucchini fan, you bet-
ter start practicing your evasive tech-
niques now. Home gardens will be
spewing out zucchini like crazy for
the next couple of months. But before
you write off zucchini from your din-
ner menus, consider what you are
missing.
Zucchini is a derivation of an Italian
word meaning "sweetest," and if you
have ever saut6ed some thinly sliced
zucchini in butter, you will know why.
When crisped, zucchini actually does
have a slightly sweet taste. It is also
sweet to your waistline, being low in
calories at only 14 per raw serving
and is a good source of Vitamin C and
Folacin. Folacin is a vitamin neces-
sary for healthy cell division and
reproduction, protein metabolism and
in treating folic acid anemia. Folacin,
also known as folic acid or Vitamin
B9, assists in digestion, the nervous
system, and is believed to improve
mental and emotional health. Grown
here locally and coming into season
as you read this, chances are you can
find "fresh from the farm" zucchini
which will provide the greatest nutri-
tional benefit. In fact, KC's Produce in
Lake City got their first delivery of
locally grown zucchini on Monday.
Not convinced? Well, maybe it is
because you just haven't had zucchini
at the prime of its life. I have been
growing zucchini for several seasons
now and have come to the conclusion
that zucchini is better when picked
young. Small, young zucchinis are
crisp, not rubbery or mushy like over-
grown zucchini can sometimes be.
They also have less seeds and contain
less water. This can be important
when you are sauteing or deep-frying
zucchini. Mushy zucchini really is
unappetizing.
Because zucchini is composed of a
great deal of water, it dehydrates
quickly. If you can't eat it right out of
the garden, store fresh zucchini in a
plastic bag in the hydrator drawer of
the refrigerator for up to one week.
Avoid damaged or bruised zucchini,
as it will deteriorate very quickly. And
if you can't use all that you have,
cooked, pureed zucchini can be
frozen in airtight containers for later
use as a base for winter soups, or grat-
ed raw, it can be frozen for use in
breads and muffins or meatloaf.
So if you've once again planted too
much zucchini or you just weren't
able to avoid that neighbor trying to
pawn off their surplus zucchini on
you, why not give it a chance and try
some of these recipes. You might just
change your mind.


Zucchini blossoms like the one shown are finding their way into farmer's markets as the demand for these


orange-yellow blossoms grows.
My Husband's Favorite
Zucchini Recipe

Recipe By: Susan Sloan
You will need about 1/2 cup very
thinly sliced zucchini per person.
In a large saut6 pan, for two people,
heat 2 tablespoons butter and 1 table-
spoon light sesame seed oil over
medium heat (more depending on the
amount of zucchini to be cooked).
Lightly brown at least 2 cloves of gar-
lic (more if you really like garlic) and
then add thinly sliced zucchini. Saut6
zucchini until golden brown and
slightly crisp. Salt to taste.

Zucchini Fritters
Recipe By: Cast Iron Classics by
Lodge Cast Iron

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup chopped zucchini
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
Canola oil to fill deep skillet about
1/2 full

Mix ingredients together just
enough to moisten well. Heat oil in


deep skillet to 375 degrees. Drop by
rounded tablespoon into hot oil.
Cook only a few at a time, turning
once, until lightly browned and
cooked through. Drain on paper tow-
els. Serve hot.

Cornbread can sometimes be dry.
This recipe for Zucchini Cornbread
should eliminate that problem.

Zucchini Cornbread
Recipe by: Bertha Gonce
3 cups grated zucchini
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter, melted
1/2 cup sour cream
1 onion, grated
2 tablespoons sugar
4 eggs, beaten lightly
1 1/2 cups white, self-rising corn-
meal

Grate zucchini into colander and
sprinkle with salt (to remove excess
moisture). Let stand 10 minutes and
then drain. Preheat oven to 350
degrees. Spray 9" skillet with non-
stick vegetable oil spray. Combine all
ingredients except cornmeal. Add
the cornmeal last and stir until well


mixed. Pour into skillet and bake for
45 minutes or until brown.

If you like your zucchini raw, this is
a tempting recipe using zucchini and
other fresh vegetables.

Zucchini and Chicken Salad
Recipe by: Martha Stewart Living
Serves 4

1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper
1 1/4 pounds zucchini, thinly sliced
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken
breasts
1 bunch (about 8 ounces) chopped
spinach
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint

In a large bowl, whisk together
1/4 cup olive oil, lemon juice, and
salt and pepper to taste. Add zucchi-
ni; toss to coat, and let marinate
while cooking chicken. In a large
nonstick skillet, heat remaining 1
tablespoon olive oil over medium
heat. Season chicken breasts with


salt and pepper. Cook until golden
brown on both sides, about 7 min-
utes per side.
Remove from skillet, and slice
thinly. Toss chicken with zucchini
mixture, spinach, onion, pecans,
Parmesan, and mint. Serve.

And for the really bold cook, why
not look at zucchini in a whole dif-
ferent way. Zucchini blossoms are
finding their way into farmer's mar-
kets as the demand for these orange-
yellow blossoms grows. Best when
picked young and tender, the more
showy male blossoms grow from the
stem and remain open longer than
the female blossoms. Both are edi-
ble. If you carefully pick the blossom
from the zucchini, it will continue to
grow unharmed.
To use the blossoms for eating,
remove the stamen and pistils (the
reproductive organs of the flower
located in the center of the blos-
som), rinse the blossoms with cool
water and dry upside down on paper
towels. If you can't use them imme-
diately, wrap the blossoms in paper
towels and refrigerate.
This pasta dish featuring zucchini
blossoms will surely wow your
friends and family.

Zucchini Blossom Pasta
Recipe By: Great Good Food byjulee
Rosso

36 zucchini blossoms of various
sizes
1 pound linguine
2 tablespoons olive oil or chicken
broth
2 teaspoons unsalted butter
2 ounces prosciutto or Canadian
bacon trimmed of fat
1 cup 1/2 inch chunks of zucchini
6 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup finely chopped Italian pars-
ley
2 tablespoons finely minced fresh
chives or basil
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Carefully prepare zucchini blos-
soms as described above. Cook the
linguine according to package direc-
tions. In a large skillet over medium
heat, melt the oil and butter. Add the
prosciutto, zucchini, garlic, parsley
and chives and saut6 for two minutes.
In a small bowl, place 2 tablespoons
of the juices from the skillet and add
the cayenne.
Add to the large skillet along with
the zucchini blossoms and cook until
the juices are reduced (about 3 to 5
minutes). Season with salt and pepper
and serve.

LOCAL & STATE


MAYOR
Continued From Page 1A

cent.
All results are unofficial
until they are certified by the
Columbia County Supervisor
of Elections Office this morn-
ing, but Witt is scheduled to
be sworn in at noon today on
the steps of City Hall.
"It was a hard fought race
from the beginning," Witt said
after learning of the final
results and the 165-vote
spread that guaranteed his vic-
tory. "All candidates really
worked. Me and Glenel both
worked hard for this and for-
tunately I came out on top."
Wearing a red-white-and-
blue polo shirt, Witt thanked
his supporters, his family and
the citizens of Lake City for
their help in seeing him voted
in as mayor.
"I look forward to the future
and will try to make Lake City
a better place," he said, before
leaving for a barbecue celebra-
tion at his home.
Meanwhile, Bowden was
welcomed to a round of
applause and cheers at the
Columbia County Women's
Club off Martin Luther King
Drive after the election, where
many of his supporters had
gathered.
Giving a grateful speech and
smiling broadly despite defeat,
Bowden said "you all rallied
around me and gave me your
time and effort."
Thanking his wife Aldonia,
following a warm embrace
between the two, he said "let
me tell you how much I appre-
ciate my family ... it's great to
know there's someone there
for you no matter what."
A former City Council mem-
ber for 16 years, Bowden said
he still believes he was the


most qualified candidate, but
added "I do know that when
it's over, it's over and when the
vote is in, you can't change
that."
"It's still the majority
speak," he said.
Bowden also called Witt on
his cell phone, congratulated
the new mayor, complimented
his campaign and offered his
support.
"If you need me, call on me
for anything, just give me a
call," he said as he finished the
call.
Once the polls had closed at
7 p.m., results came in quickly
from all six polling places with
the race decided by about 7:30
p.m.
A crowd of about 40 includ-
ing the supporters of both can-
didates, gathered inside the
east entrance of the Columbia
County Supervisor of
Elections office off West Duval
Street Tuesday night to watch
live results.
As the vote totals came
across projected on a large
expanse of a blank wall, people
moved forward anxiously in
anticipation of the final results.
Many placed periodic update
calls to people awaiting the
outcome elsewhere.
There was a moment of pre-
mature celebration for Witt,
however, as results from six of
six precincts appeared to have
returned, before an elections
office worker explained that it
was some of the voting results,
but not all.
Bowden then appeared to
be taking a lead as more of the
results returned, but Witt
pulled ahead for good when all
votes were tabulated.
To the surprise of many, the
turnout for Tuesday's runoff
was higher than the May 10
election with five candidates.
Out of 6,205 registered city


voters, 2,060 voted Tuesday
making for a 33 percent
turnout. That is 6 percent
higher than the turnout on
May 10, when 1,681 ballots
were cast or about 27 percent.
"I was real surprised that
many came (out)," Supervisor
of Elections Liz Home said
Tuesday.
Usually, she said, the runoff
has the lesser turnout, "but it
was turned around this time."
Steve Mack, Precinct 13
polling place deputy at
Southside Recreation Center,
said voting there was "very
active" Tuesday afternoon.
Judging by a precinct-by-
precinct breakdown, Precinct
13 accounted for the most
votes, with 374 voting for Witt
and 76 voting for Bowden,
making a total of 450 people.
"People are coming in with
enthusiasm," he said. "They
got it in their minds they've
got to get something done and
they're doing it. I see new
faces, new attitudes, every-
thing."
Mack said the zeal among
voters seemed much more
pronounced Tuesday than it
did for the May 10 special elec-
tion with five mayoral candi-
dates on the ballot.
'The atmosphere is unreal,"
he said. "There's something
going on and I think the peo-
ple are looking for progress."
At Precinct 10, however,
polling place deputy Leon
Waters said as of Tuesday
afternoon turnout was about
the same as the May 10 elec-
tion.
"All I can say is they've been
trickling in," he said.
Still, though it only had 244
voters (234 for Bowden and
Witt 10), it's turnout percent-
age among its voters wound
up the highest of all at about
39 percent.

"I'm excited about being the

said. "We just kept walking at
night, we just tried to hide dur-
ing the day and we walked 800
miles across Germany in the
middle of winter."
Eventually, he said, after
eluding re-capture he and his
fellow POWs were found by
English troops who took them
in and returned them to
American forces.
For his war efforts, Banks
was awarded two
Distinguished Flying Crosses,
the Air Force's highest honor
in WWII, and his exploits
became the inspiration and a
large element of his book.
At Monday's ceremony,
Banks said he will talk in more
detail about "my experiences
as a prisoner and my escape
and about how God listens to
prayers and answers your
prayers. Without that, I would-
n't be alive today. Everybody

the Columbia County Health
Department, issued boil-water
notices for the areas surround-
ing Mimi's Sink. At the meet-
ing, he showed how wells that
tested positive for e. coli
traced the water flow under-
ground.
Lander's department found
that the water tended to flow
west before turning south and
southwest. He said the once-
contaminated wells could con-
tinue to be affected because of
the sinkholes.


During her career, Alford

aide, transportation aide and

tor for the entire county.
"I always gave the school

she said. "It's a challenge, and
I'm looking forward to it."
Following the meeting,

me. All of the prisoners were
killed too, except the four of
us."
Banks, who has spoken all
over the country and has done
humanitarian work through-
out the world with his wife fol-
lowing his retirement, said he
hopes that people who live in
America appreciate their coun-
try and their freedoms.
"A lot of them don't and
probably 90 percent of them
don't know what a war is like,
can't even conceive of it, and
what the men and women go
through in the armed servic-
es," he said. "That's why we
should support our troops in
Iraq and Afghanistan and all
over the world as far as that's
concerned."
Banks will also speak about
what his wife went through
with their then toddler son as
she didn't know where her
husband was after he became
a POW or if he was even alive
for nearly a year.


"A long-term solution is
required to ensure potable
water," Lander said.
To better inform local resi-
dents of Ichetucknee's charac-
teristics, Ichetucknee Springs
State Park has formed a part-,
nership with Fort White High
School.
Sam Cole, who works at the
state park, said the partner-
ship has been highly success-
ful in educating Fort White
youth about the Ichetucknee.
At the park's recent Lake City
Appreciation Day, he said Fort
White teenagers displayed
more knowledge about
Ichetucknee than some adults.


many school board members
and Superintendent Sam
Markham, congratulated the
women on their new positions.
"It's really good for us to be
able to hire people who have
worked their way up through
the system," said school
board member Keith
Hudson.


"She went through hell, too,
for some time," he said. "I
hung on to her and to my son,
thinking hopefully I would be
able to see them."
At Monday's ceremony,
Miss Florida 2005 Kylie
Williams is also scheduled to
sing patriotic music selections.
Though he has spoken on
his wartime experiences many
times "I've never turned
down an invitation to speak"
- Banks said the memories
are still painful to recollect.
But Banks said the discus-
sion is important and anyone
young or old can learn some-
thing from his speech and per-
sonal trials.
"I've gotten a letter from an
atheist that said 'I read your
book, I started praying and
I've started going to church,'"
he said. "(To cone) from
being an atheist? If that hap-
pened, then it's worth writing
the book."


"These kids are sharp,"
Cole said.
Environmental impact stud-
ies in the basin continue. One
such study, conducted
through Karst Environmental
Services, was detailed by Pete
Butt, who showed how purple
dye was used to determine
underground water flow near
the state park's ranger resi-
dences.
Stevenson said there are
currently 13 studies under-
way in the Ichetucknee
Basin, making it the second

CHS celebrates softball year


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter. com

Columbia High softball was
the only school team in
Columbia County to win a dis-
trict championship in 2004-05.
The Lady Tigers celebrated
their season at an awards ban-
quet on Tuesday.
There was much to praise
in CHS soft-
ball this
season.
w : The varsi-
Ai ty finished
23-4, won the
t District 6-4A
title and
Majeski added a vic-
tory in the
first playoff game. Columbia's
junior varsity was a perfect
16-0 and won the Ocala JV
Tournament.
Former University of
Florida baseball player and
assistant softball coach Dave
Majeski was guest speaker.
Majeski gave tips on college
recruiting from the side of the
player and the recruiter.
Majeski advised players to
use common sense on where
they needed to improve -
grades, hitting, pitching,
fielding.
"Whatever you think of to
do, go do it," Majeski said.
'There are no restrictions on
players contacting a college
coach. Take it personally and
do things yourself."
Majeski spoke of the
restrictions on college recruit-
ing and told players their atti-
tude before and after a game
are just as important as how
they play. "Somebody is
always watching you," he
said.

Slider Slugfest wraps up


Two Lake City

teams finish 3rd

By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter.com

The Slider Slugfest wrap-
ped up on Sunday at the
Southside Sports Complex
with championship games in
five different age groups.
The Jacksonville Tsunami
won the 10-and-under group
with a 1-0 extra-inning win
over the Jacksonville Players
team.
In the 12a group, the
Gainesville Gold defeated the
Jacksonville Streamline team
4-3.
The Jacksonville Limit
won the 12b group with a 5-2
win over Jacksonville Total
Impact.
The Streamline beat Total
Impact 4-1 in the 14-and-
under championship, and the
Palatka Paws beat Total
Impact 4-2 in the 16-and-
under title game.
Palatka eliminated the
Lake City Sliders in the pre-
vious round, and the 12a
team also had a third-place
finish.
The 12a team went 3-3, the


16-and-under team went 2-2
and the 14-and-under team
finished 0-4.
The Fort White Storm 16-
and-under team finished 3-1
and beat the Blue Diamonds
7-1 to advance to the second
round. The 12-and-under
team was 2-3 and the 10-and-
under team finished 1-3, win-
ning a first-round playoff
game on Sunday against
Team Jacksonville. The
Storm fell to Suwannee 4-3 in
the second round.
"It was a good weekend,"
Tournament Director Jimmy
Williams said. "I think after a
couple of years people really
like it."
Williams also got some help
in running the tournament.
. "Harvey Campbell was
instrumental in getting peo-
ple to park cars and putting
signs out there to direct peo-
ple," Williams said.
According to Williams, con-
cession sales brought in 30
percent of the total needed to
send the Under-16 Sliders to
the World Series in Panama
City July 10-17.
There is still a chance to
reach that goal when Lake
City hosts the ISA district
championships June 17-19 at
Southside.
