Covenant

school

is ready

for year

New institution will
serve students in
grades K-6.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter. com
Lake City's newest private
school is nearly up and run-
ning and having no trouble
attracting students as officials
prepare for the school's open-
ing in August.
The Covenant Community
School, founded by Covenant
Community Properties part-
ners Cindy Soucinck, Bryan
and Missy Zecher and JoAnna
and Fritz Amrhein, will be a
Christian-based community
school.
The school is located at
2019 SW Main Blvd., the for-
mer site of Biggs Funeral
Home.
S"It has been completely
renovated," said JoAnna
Amrhein, a Covenant
Community partner. "You
wouldn't even recognize it
when you went inside how.
We have four classrooms, a
media center and a room
called 'the arena' where we
can do indoor games and we
will have art and music."
The school has plans to
have kindergarten (5-year-
old) sixth grade classes in its
first year and was looking to
have 75 students.
Amrhein said the school's
staff is in place and Missy
Zecher, will be the school
administrator. The school will
have five teachers and three
assistants.
"We have all of our teachers
in place now and enrollment
is going incredibly well," she
said. "I think the school is
popular because people are
looking for an alternative to
the public school system and
we offer personalized atten-
tion with a superior Christian-
based curriculum and we
believe school should be fun."

at a grave in the Forest


For veterans, a moment


of reflection is important


Remembering
friends and relatives
is special on holiday.
By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.com
Many see Memorial Day
as a three-day weekend and
the perfect opportunity to
kick off summer with a bar-
becue, trip to the beach or
area waterways. But its ori-
gins were never meant to
signal recreation.
Memorial Day was estab-
lished as a day of remem-
brance for those who died
while in service to country
and has its roots in the
South. The holiday began
during the Civil War when
women's groups through-
out the South honored the
Confederacy's dead with
flowers, flags and wreaths
on their graves.
With the tradition quick-
ly spreading across the


country, it became a nation-
al holiday on May 5, 1868,
after being officially pro-
claimed by Gen. John
Logan, national command-
er of the Grand Army of the
Republic. The day was first
observed on May 30, 1868.
This year, by chance,
Memorial Day will fall on
the same calendar day 137
years later.
In Gen. Logan's official
order proclaiming the holi-
day, he wrote on the impor-
tance of Memorial Day, its
meaning still applicable
today when U.S. service
men and women are still
sacrificing their lives
almost daily:
"If our eyes grow dull,
other hands slack, and
other hearts cold in the
solemn trust, ours shall
keep it well as long as the
light and warmth of life
remain to us ... Let us, then,
at the time appointed gath-
er around their sacred


remains and garland the
passionless mounds above
them with the choicest
flowers of spring-time; let
us raise above them the
dear old flag they saved
from his honor; let us in
this solemn presence
renew our pledges to aid
and assist those whom they
have left among us a sacred
charge upon a nation's grat-
itude, the soldier's and
sailor's widow and orphan."
The true meaning of
Memorial Day may mean
the most to those who have
gone through battle first-
hand, those who have
watched their fellow sol-
diers and sailors pay for the
freedoms of the country by
using their own lives as cur-
rency.

Florida Folk Festival attracts ,

a multi-cultural audience .


Large crowd enjoys
day at White Springs
cultural event.
By JENNIFER CHASTEEN
jchasteen@lakecityreporter.com
WHITE SPRINGS -
Canopied under age-old oaks,
the sights, smells, and sounds
of the 53rd annual Florida
Folk Festival at Stephen
'Foster Folk Cultural Center
State Park in White Springs
mingled with the rush of the
Suwannee River.
But some may say that the
essence of the festival has
been washed away diluted
by too many diversities.
Throughout the weekend,
the park hosts a multi-cultural


array of craftsman, educators,
vendors, and musicians with
more than 200 performances
daily a staggering amount
compared to the number of
participants during the initial
years of the festival in the
1950s.
"I have attended the festival
for the last 25 years and it has
grown a lot," says Christie
Koontz of Tallahassee, a folk-
tale artist.
Koontz, who has been
telling American folktales at
the festival for 17 years, com-
ments on how the festival is
now more appealing to a
broader cross-selection of vis-
itors. "It's more multi-cultural.
It is attracting a broader base
of people from more places."
"The folk festival is definite-


ly the biggest festival of the
year for the park and White
Springs," said local artist
Janet Moss. Moss and her
mother, Judy Pruitt, run A
Place in the Park, a cafe with-
in the park. Pruitt owns the
cafe and Moss sells her art-
work there.
"The festival brings extra
people to the local businesses.
We wish more would come
out of the park and visit the
city."
Moss said the festival has
done a wonderful job this year
in offering new things for chil-
dren. "The children's art and
music tent has given kids
something new to do. Now

Remember


true meaning


of holiday
This weekend is about more
than cookouts and trips to
your favorite recreational
water location. This is a seri-
ous weekend. This is a holiday
of which we should never forget the signif-
icance.
This is Memorial Day actually falling
on Decoration Day's intended May 30 -
and it is a day of solemn appreciation that
all Americans should pause and reflect
upon.
Men and women have died throughout
the course of history so that our country
can remain free and so that freedom could
be spread throughout the world.
We extend our sympathies to those who
lost loved ones in uniform serving on the
front lines, but we also congratulate them
and share tears of joy. Their sacrifice,
while nearly impossible to bear for those
left behind, has made our country
stronger.
It is a terrible thing when a member of
the Armed Forces dies in combat. Each
loss represents a promising life cut short,
most always a young life.
We cannot forget these men and women
who eagerly stood in harm's way, at one
specific moment in time, so the rest of us
could sleep easy at that same moment.
Memorial Day is a pride-filled, emotional
American holiday.
Enjoy the Monday off, but pause to be
thankful and remember its true meaning.




Today is Sunday, May 29, the 149th day
of 2005. There are 216 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:

On May 29, 1765, Patrick Henry

In 1790, Rhode Island became the 13th
original colony to ratify the United States
Constitution.
In 1848, Wisconsin became the 30th
state of the union.
In 1903, comedian Bob Hope was born
Leslie Townes Hope in Eltham, England.
In 1917, the 35th president of the United
States, John F Kennedy, was born in
Brookline, Mass.
In 1932, World War I veterans began
arriving in Washington to demand cash
bonuses they were not scheduled to
receive for another 13 years.
In 1942, actor John Barrymore died in
Hollywood at age 60.
In 1943, Norman Rockwell's portrait of
"Rosie the Riveter" appeared on the cover
of The Saturday Evening Post.
In 1953, Mount Everest was conquered
as Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and
Tensing Norkay of Nepal became the first
climbers to reach the summit.
In 1985, 35 people were killed in rioting
that erupted between British and Italian
spectators at the European Cup soccer final
in Brussels, Belgium.
In 1998, Republican elder statesman
Barry Goldwater died in Paradise Valley,
Ariz., at age 89.

A prayer for Benjamin Duke


The plaque at Ocean Pond reads:
"Forestry Service, U.S.
Department of Agriculture, Ocean
Pond Picnic Area, Dedicated to the
memory of Benjamin Franklin
Duke, Forester on the Osceola and
Choctawhatchee National Forests in Florida in
1939 and 1940, Who gave his life in the Service
of his country on June 18, 1943, World War II."
Who, of all American war dead, will you
think of Monday on Memorial Day? I will think
of Benjamin Franklin Duke and the day my
unexpected prayer became part of his memori-
al service. You have probably never heard of
Benjamin Duke. I never knew him. He was a
young forester who worked in the Osceola
National Forest in 1940.
When World War II started, he left the
Forest Service to join the Army and he was
killed in action June 18, 1943, while serving our
country.
In .1947, the U.S. Forest Service decided to
dedicate the brand new Ocean Pond
Recreation Area in Benjamin Duke's memory.
The dedication ceremony was set for March,
1947.
Five Lake City Boy Scout troops were invit-
ed to attend the dedication ceremony and all
accepted. I was one of five scouts, one from
each troop, selected to participate in the for-
mal program. My part was to lead the pledge to
the flag.
The ceremony was held on the north side of
Ocean Pond, and it was there we all gathered
outdoors in a large circle on that cool, bright
March day.
The program began exactly on time. The
master of ceremonies looked out over the 100-
plus uniformed scouts and other guests and
welcomed them.
He then began calling on first one scout to
recite the scout's oath, then another to say the
scout's laws, all according to a rehearsed plan.
I was scheduled to be next, to lead the
pledge to the flag, and I was ready. Nervous
but ready.
"And now," he said, "Morris Williams,
Troop 87, will lead us...."
I was actually looking forward to my part. I
would stand tall and say in my clearest voice, "I
pledge allegiance to the flag of the United
States of America ..."
But then the emcee finished his sentence,
"..in our opening prayer."
My mind went blank. I couldn't believe it! I
was not supposed to say a prayer. That was
someone else. I was to lead the pledge!
All the scouts removed their caps for the
prayer. The group fell silent. They waited for
the prayer to begin. I waited, too, thinking,
hoping the scout designated to pray might
begin his prayer even though my name had
been called.
No such luck. I had to do it. Mentally stag-
gering, I almost began, "Dear Lord, I pledge
allegiance to the flag..."
Then I took a deep breath and began: "Dear
God, thank you for Benjamin Duke. Thank


' MORRIS
MfA WILLIAMS


you for his work in this forest. Thank you for
the sacrifice of his life for our country. We hope
his family will like this memorial to him.
Amen."
The caps went back on and the program con-
tinued to its conclusion. The other scouts
returned to their camp sites and their normal
routines. But my mind was still reeling. I wor-
ried about my little prayer. It hadn't even
seemed to me like a real prayer. I yearned for
some sign of reassurance. When you are 14
years old, you find lots to worry about.
Miserable and depressed, I walked to the
truck we came in and climbed into the back. I
sat there alone for a long time feeling sorry for
myself.
The mix-up in the program was bothering
me but I realized I was also feeling guilty. I was
thinking about me when I should have been
thinking about Benjamin Duke.
I left the truck and headed toward my scout-
master, L.O. Collier. I knew I could depend on
him to make me feel better.
Suddenly I was in her arms and felt her soft
kiss, and her tears on my cheek.
"I am Benjamin Duke's mother," she whis-
pered. I have felt such a heavy burden since
Ben left us. Today, I felt part of that burden lift-
ed. Your prayer helped me so much. I will
always remember it."
Back home a week later I got a letter from
her. She thanked me for participating in the
dedication ceremony. In part of her letter, she
recalled my little prayer almost word for word.
That's how I can recall it now. She asked me to
write to her from time to time. I never did.
Fourteen year olds don't write many letters.
I wish I had written her.
I never heard from her again.
Recently I traveled to the Ocean Pond
Recreation Area to see the memorial plaque. It
is still there. The plaque reminded me that a
young forester gave his life for our country

memorialized his supreme sacrifice the best
way it knew how.
The plaque also reminded me of Ben Duke's
grieving mother and the high price she and all
like her have paid for giving their sons and

Benjamin Dukes of American History.

Congress has
purse strings

In his column May 26,
Columnist David J. Roberts
refers to "the George W. Bush
deficits."
Roberts needs to study con-


gressional history. Some
years ago, U.S. Sen. Ted
Kennedy thundered on the
Senate floor, during debate on
a spending bill, that
"Congress controls the purse
strings."
For once, the Senator was
right. Federal spending is


controlled by Congress.
Presidents can propose
spending from now 'til Hades
freezes over, but the
Constitution says the repre-
sentatives and senators will
decide who gets tax dollars.

Remembering


those who did


not come back

I pray that our Heavenly Father may
assuage the anguish of your bereave-
ment, and leave you only the cherished
memory of the loved and lost, and the
solemn pride that must be yours, to have
laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of
Freedom.
-Abraham Lincoln, November 1864

Among the more vivid memories of my
childhood is going to Arlington National
Cemetery one Memorial Day. There was a
beauty and solemnity to the place that even
I, as a boy, could appreciate.
The endless rows of white tombstones at
Arlington stand out brilliantly against the
impeccably groomed green lawn. Old Glory
moves lazily atop a knoll as a listless breeze
blowing off the nearby Potomac River
unfolds her colors. Under those stripes and
stars lie the graves of men some boys
barely old enough to enlist and others wiz-
ened veterans who from the Revolutionary
War to the present have fought and died to
preserve the freedom she represents.
I remember Dad getting a catch in his
voice as he talked with me about the sacri-
fices the soldiers interred there had made.
Mostly, though, we just walked and read the
names.
At the Tomb of the Unknowns, there was
no sound beyond the click of each service-
man's heels as he performed his duty walk-
ing the guard post before the Tomb. If ever
there was an impressive sight, a vision that
will make one's wellspring of patriotism
gush up, it is that hallowed place. The digni-
ty and honor are almost overwhelming.
It is noteworthy that the guard at the
Tomb of the Unknowns is there 24 hours a
day, 365 days a year. Even in times of
extreme weather, they walk their 21 steps in
front of the Tomb, make a 90-degree turn to
face the Tomb, and exactly 21 seconds later,
make another 90 degree turn and start their
21-step walk in the other direction.
Respecting those who have given their
lives in service to the United States went out
of fashion at some point in this country. The
anti-war protesters of the 1960s and those
from the Me Generation of the 1970s didn't
have much time for soldiers. Many in the
succeeding years have also given short
shrift to our men and women in arms.
That seems to have shifted since the hor-
ror of Sept. 11. Now, even those who oppose
the war in Iraq support the soldiers who are
there.
We in the Lake City area have a special
relationship to America's veterans through
the North Florida/South Georgia Veterans
Administration Medical Center. Each day
hundreds of veterans are at the center for
treatment of illnesses, some caused by the
normal processes of aging and others
brought on by injuries received in combat.
Many of the veterans who come here had
buddies who died in combat serving
America. For them, tomorrow will carry
extra significance.
A special Memorial Day Celebration will
be held at the Alfonso Levy Performing Arts
Center at Lake City Community College at 6
p.m. Monday, highlighted by the keynote
address of World War II veteran Joseph
Banks. I had the pleasure of hearing Banks
several weeks ago when he talked to the
Lake City Rotary Club. He was compelling.
I urge you not to miss this event.
President Lincoln spoke the words at the
beginning of this column shortly after the
dedication of Arlington National Cemetery.
Had he led the nation a century later,
Honest Abe could as easily have written this
eloquent Memorial Day tribute:
'"War drew us from our homeland
In the sunlit springtime of our youth.
Those who did not come back alive remain
in perpetual springtime -forever young- And
a part of them is with us always."

REMEMBER
Continued From Page 1A

those at the Lake City
Veterans Affairs Medical this
week to get their unique per-
spective on the day of remem-
brance and recollection:
Timothy Mimbs, Army
Timothy Mimbs is one of
Columbia County's newest vet-
erans, having participated in
Operation Iraqi Freedom and
just now looking at Memorial
Day through the eyes of some-
one who has experienced the
rigors of war firsthand.
Mimbs is a Lake City native
and Columbia High School
graduate of 1996, but more
recently an Army sergeant in
the 10th Mountain Division
based in Fort Drum, N.Y.
Now out of the military fol-
lowing four years of active
duty, Mimbs returned home in
October of last year after a 14-
month combat/patrol deploy-
ment in Iraq, 12 months of
which were spent in the
Fallujah area, where insurgent
unrest and attacks were com-
mon. Before that, he had spent
seven months on a peacekeep-
ing mission in Kosovo.
Though only 27, Mimbs has
seen his share of firefights,
being involved in "more than
50, less than 100" in Iraq. A
Purple Heart recipient for
injuries he received from fly-
ing shrapnel, he commanded a
group of about seven soldiers
for most of his deployment.
Reluctant to call himself a
veteran or boast about his
service, Mimbs is hesitant
when asked to recall the
events that were most trau-
matic to him as a soldier in
Iraq.
Speaking briefly on signifi-
cant circumstances, Mimbs
said he once saw a Chinook
transport helicopter go down
with 15 servicemen who died
and 20 more wounded.
Being brief, he only says, "it
was pretty bad."
Likewise for the car bomb
he and his men were only 100
meters from. The blast killed a
large group of Iraqi civilians,
including women and chil-
dren, right before his eyes.


But his most harrowing
experience as a soldier, he
said, was a 24-hour period
when he and his platoon were
pinned down and outnum-
bered by insurgents while run-
ning dangerously low on
ammo. Mimbs explained that
his unit went in to retrieve
another that had been
ambushed after a military
transport hit an improvised
bomb on the outskirts of
Fallujah. After going in to
retrieve their fellow soldiers,
he said he and his men also
were soon hunkered down in
defense and requiring assis-

ilt was one of those
things that was touch
and go through the
night and we didn't
know if we were going
to make it or not.

tance themselves.
"It was one of those things
where it was touch and go
through the night and we did-
n't know if we were going to
make it or not," he said.
Though it was only 24 hours
before reinforcements arrived,
Mimbs said with regular gun-
fire and being shelled by mor-
tars "it seemed like we were
there for a week."
Luckily, he said, his unit did-
n't lose a single man, but the
same couldn't be said for the
Iraqi insurgents.
In the spirit of Memorial
Day, Mimbs said his thoughts
on the holiday will go to "all
the veterans who have gone
before me and all the sacri-
fices they. made."
For him, he said, "what I did
over there doesn't count as
much as that all of my guys
[those under his command]
made it home alive."
"Any achievement I made
was as a group and not as an
individual," he added.
And with many paying the
ultimate price, Mimbs said
regardless of one's political


views "they should support
the sacrifices men and women
are making over there."
Pete Herrick, Navy
A Fort White resident,
Herrick is a petty officer third
class in the Jacksonville-based
Naval Construction Battalion
14 (Seabees) who received
serious injuries from a mortar
attack more than a year ago in
Iraq's Al Anbar province.
A mortar blast gave Herrick
multiple shrapnel injuries,
including one that broke his
neck and caused paralysis
from the neck down, and
required his left leg from the
knee down to be amputated.
Now home in Fort White
with his wife Diana and two
teenage children, Herrick is
adjusting to his new life as a
disabled veteran. During the
year after his attack he under-
went several major surgeries
and many smaller procedures,
going through periods of ups
and downs before he could
recover well enough to go
home.
Having lost seven members
of his battalion in the same
attack that injured him,
Herrick said he was already
thinking about Memorial Day
this week and what it means to
him now.
"You go through all the pre-
vious years of your life, and
thinking about Memorial Day,
you remember a lot of the peo-
ple we've lost but then when
you actually know some of the
people that gave their lives for
the freedoms that we all enjoy,
it really means a lot more for
me," Herrick said. "It hits a lot
closer to home."
He said many will celebrate
Memorial Day as an extra day
off from work, and may not
"think about the sacrifices that
a lot of the people have made


and the families that are left,
having lost a loved one."
"I don't think there is any-
thing wrong with people cele-
brating it that way, but it would
be nice if they at least took
some time to remember the
sacrifices," Herrick said.
He said he and his family
will likely have a barbecue
today, and weren't sure how
they will celebrate Memorial
Day because he hasn't felt well
this week, "but we need to do
something."
"We lost seven guys over
there., I knew all seven," he
said. "A couple were real good
friends of mine ... you never
forget and hopefully I never
will either. They were good
men."
Randall Harmon, Army
Randall Harmon, a Valdosta,
Ga., resident, was a member of
the Army Security Agency
who just missed being sent to
the Vietnam War by about
three months.
Now 47 and currently at the
Veterans Affairs Medical
Center in the hospice ward,
Harmon didn't see any combat
himself, but many in his unit
did and he lost an extended
family member in the war.
To him, he said, Memorial
Day is about "honoring."
"It's about showing grati-
tude for somebody that volun-
teered to go and take a bullet
and give their life so you could
sit on your butt here in the
United States of America and
enjoy your free life," Harmon
said.
He said when many use the
holiday to have a barbecue or
go to a picnic, they should
remember that is why the vet-
erans who sacrificed their
lives, "so you could have that
freedom."
'That is the very reason


people were dying," Harmon
said. "People don't think about
that when they are at that pic-
nic."
David Harris, Navy
A firefighter in the Navy for
most of the 1970s, Live Oak
resident David Harris never
saw combat, but said he was
ready and willing to give his
life for his country. .
Now at the VA Medical
Center, the 53-year-old Harris
has a brother still in the Air
Force and believes Memorial
Day "is so special."
With the current conflicts in

6You go through all
the previous years of
your life and thinking
about Memorial Day,
you remember a lot of
the people we've lost,
but then when you
actually know some of
the people that gave
their lives for the free-
doms that we all
enjoy, it really means
a lot more for me.
Pete Herrick
Navy veteran


Iraq and soldiers still being
killed in insurgent attacks,
Harris said he believes people
who go into the military and
give their lives do it "for love,"
love of their country and its
citizens. He said their willing-
ness deserves support and
respect on Memorial Day.
Even if it doesn't make
sense to some people, he said,
if he were younger and asked


to go to Iraq and fight, "I'd be
right in there with them."
"I wouldn't do it for myself
to say I did it," Harris said. "I'd
do it for my country."
Donald Loper, Army
Perry resident Donald
Loper still remembers his
experiences of more than 60
years ago in World War II.
Now 82, the VA Medical
Center patient was in an Army
Engineer battalion during the
war, spending most of his time
in Germany and France.
. As a staff sergeant for his
unit, most of Loper's duties
required him to make sure the
vehicles for his battalion were
working properly and ready to
go.
Most of the time, he said his
unit was isolated and spent its
time clearing mind fields.
Loper said he even watched
two of his fellow soldiers step
on mines and be killed.
He said he feels sorry for
new wounded veterans that
come home now and that
"they have a hard row to hoe."
'They come home and are
injured and some of them
don't make it," he said.
Over the years, he said he
has watched the members of
his unit who survived WWII
each get older and "I've seen
them dying off one by one."
On Memorial Day, Loper
said he thinks about those
who didn't make it home from
the war and who did, but have
died since.
He said he likes to believe
that most people who go to pic-
nics and enjoy recreational
activities on the holiday still
take a moment to appreciate
the efforts of veterans who've
died.
To him, he said Memorial
Day simply "means sacrifice
for the country."

BASEBALL
Gators, FSU
eliminated
HOOVER, Ala. -
Tommy Baumgardner
pitched six strong innings,
Stephen Head homered and
Mississippi set up a show-
down of arch rivals for the
Southeastern Conference
tournament title with a 4-2
win over Florida Saturday.
The Rebels, who forced
the second game with a 14-
1 victory over the top-seed-
ed Gators, will meet
Mississippi State today in
the first all-Mississippi
finals.
Unlike Mississippi State,
which
has five
tourna-
ment
titles, Ole
Miss (44-
17) has
only one
and
that came
in the
first SEC McMahon
tourna-
ment, in 1977.
The Gators (40-19)
loaded the bases with one
out against Baumgardner
(2-1) in the sixth. But Jared
Kubin grounded to third,
and Chris Coghlan stepped
on the bag then threw to
first for the double play.
Florida left men on base
in each of the first six
innings against
Baumgardner, making only
his second start of the sea-
son. He allowed just one
run on 10 hits with five
strikeouts and no walks.
The Rebels' pitching was
even better in the first
game.
Anthony Cupps tossed a
two-hitter and Mississippi
had a seven-run third
inning in a game called
after seven due to the
10-run mercy rule.
It was the Gators' worst
ended a six-game winning
streak.

JACKSONVILLE -

Tyler Greene had three hits
including a three-run
homer as Tech handed
Florida State its worse loss

Sof the Atlantic Coast
Conference tournament.
Georgia Tech (41-16) will
meet Virginia in today's


championship game.
Florida State drops to 50-18
for the season after suffer-
ing its worst loss since a 21-
5 defeat to Georgia in 1982.

SECOND SEASON



Babe Ruth All-Stars prepare for tournament play


By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter. corn

The Babe Ruth baseball regular season may be
over, but for many kids in Columbia County and
across the country, the fun is just beginning.
That's because the best and brightest players have
been selected by coaches to represent their teams on
All-Star teams.
The All-Stars began practicing two weeks ago, and
this weekend marks the first tournament for many.
"Just seeing the kids' excitement in their eyes,"
Lake City 8-and-under co-coach Dennis Shubert said.
"It's a fun time for them. And because we have so
many kids who are playing baseball for the first time,
this is something that's completely new for them."
Shubert and his team are in Chiefland this week-
end for an 11-team tournament.
"It's a good warm-up for the Rookie Tournament
(here)," Shubert said. "A good portion of the 11
teams will be here for the tournament."
Shubert's 7-year-old son Harrison is playing on All-
Stars for the third time.
"It's good, because you get to hit the ball and run,"
he said.
Seven-year-old Jacob Thomas is in his first All-Star
experience.
"Pretty good," he said. "Because there's a lot of dif-
ferent players."
The children and coaches aren't the only ones who
enjoy All-Star season. Parents also love Babe Ruth's
second season.
Dana Gaylord's son Drew is a first-time All-Star.
"It was what he worked for all season," she said.
And Gaylord is having as much fun as her son is.

Lake City American player Kaleb Thomas gets in position to
field a ground ball during practice at the Southside Sports
Complex on Wednesday.


ALL-STARS
Continued from page 1B
"We've got a great bunch of
kids and parents," she said.
Missy DuPree is an All-Star
veteran. Her son Austin plays
on the Americans, and her
older son plays on a traveling
AAU team.
"So far we've done really
good with the scheduling,"
she said, adding that she and
her husband have been able to
make every game for both
boys.
There's also more to All-
Stars than just playing the
games and representing the
community.
"I hope they have fun, but
it's the friendships that are so
important," she said. "Most of
my oldest son's good friends
have come from his first All-
Star team."
Her advice to first-time par-
ents like Dana: "Just let the
kids have fun. Don't try to ana-


lyze too much."
Andrew Johnson, a 10-year-
old catcher playing for the 10A
All-Stars added that the best
thing about playing on an All-
Star team is, "You don't have
any sorry players."
The season lasts through
July, and both Fort White and
Lake City will host different
tournaments.
Southside Sports Complex
will host the Rookie State
Qualifying Tournament June
9-12, with the Southeast
Regional Tournament coming
July 22-25.
The South Columbia Sports
Park is already hosting an
Invitational Tournament that
will end today, with a small
State B Tournament for 1OU
and 12U teams slated for June
23-26.
That should be plenty of
time for the All-Stars to shine,
and to use the skills they
learned to help their Babe
Ruth teams next season.

Ichetucknee River visitors from Hawaii enjoy a leisurely day paddling down the clear river earlier this week. The


SUSAN SLOAN/Special to the Reporter
Ichetucknee Springs State Park is one of Columbia County's best attractions.


Summer offers cool getaways in the crystal-clear water


By SUSAN SLOAN
Special to the Reporter
S o what's all the fuss
about? What, exact-
ly, is so special
about this place
called Ichetucknee
Springs and what the heck is
"tubing?" If you're clueless,
now is the time to pay atten-
tion the "official"
Ichetucknee River tubing sea-
son is under way.
The Ichetucknee Springs
Basin, which includes about
300 square miles in and
around Lake City, is the
source of water that feeds the
aquifer that provides our
drinking water and eventually
finds its way underground to
Ichetucknee Springs.
Ichetucknee Springs is a
valued natural resource at the
epicenter of special interest
groups working to protect its
water quality.
Within the boundaries of
Ichetucknee Springs State
Park, the Ichetucknee River
runs six miles through some
of the most beautiful,
unspoiled and diverse
scenery in the state. The
river, which maintains a year
round temperature of 72-73
degrees, flows through four
distinct types of landscape.
There are shady hardwood
hammocks where white-tailed
deer, wild turkeys, gray fox
and bobcats make their home.
There are sunny sand hills,
wild rice marshes and
swampy floodplain forests
that are home to a wide vari-
ety of birds, fish and turtles. It
is a virtual paradise to nature
lovers.
But for the next three
months (until Labor Day), it
will be home to another type
of aquatic species the tuber!
On Friday, the park officially
kicked off the tubing season.
Tubing, for the novice, is tak-
ing a tube, raft, or some inflat-
able version of either, enter-
ing the pristine waters of the
river from one of three docks
and letting your cares slip
away as you drift downstream
through scenery that will
leave you breathless. That is,
if you can avoid the peak
times when the river is full of
children who provide a whole
other form of entertainment -
watching them splash, squeal
and scream while having the
time of their life.
To take advantage of this
natural treasure right in our

midst, it helps to have a few
helpful hints from people in
the know. Park Ranger Paul
Heinmuller is just one of five
park rangers who are avail-
able throughout the park to
help make your experience
more enjoyable. Heinmuller


ber of persons allowed on the
river on any given day. To
maintain a balance between
nature and the tourists who
wish to experience it, the park
will only allow 750 to enter the
river at the North Entrance
and 2250 at the Midpoint


SUSAN SLOAN/Speclal to the Reporter

has been park ranger at
Ichetucknee Springs since
1997 and is also the safety rep
for the park. One of the
things you need to know
before setting off for the park
is that there is a limited num-


Entrance. If you enter at the
North Entrance, plan on
being on the river for about 3
1/2 hours. From the Midpoint
Dock, it's 2 1/2 hours to the
end, and from Dampiers
Landing Dock, 1 1/2 hours. If


you just want a short taste of
the experience, you can also
enter the river at the Midpoint
Dock and exit at Dampiers
Landing, a 45 minute excur-
sion.
OK, so you think this is
something you want to try.
How does it work logistically?
What makes it an "official"
tubing season is the fact that
you can actually enter the
river from the North Entrance
and that the tram service that
shuttles drivers back to their
cars at the end of the tubing
experience is in service. It's
very simple pick your
entrance location, drop off the
tubes and tubers, drive to the
designated parking area and a
shuttle service will return the
driver to the entry point. Note
that only the driver will be
allowed to use the shuttle
service. Meet up with your
party and let the fun begin.
Weekends are the busiest
time on the river. The North
Entrance opens for tubers at 8
a.m. and Ranger Heinmuller
suggests that you plan on get-
ting in line no later than 7:30
a.m. The 750 maximum is
quickly reached, and it is first
come, first in. The midpoint
entrances are also first come,
first in, and are closed when
the 2250 maximum is reached
or 4 p.m. Heinmuller suggests
the shorter runs for those
with health issues, particular-
ly those with heart or circula-
tion problems as the occasion-
al instance of hypothermia
has occurred due to the cool-
er water temperature. For a
more sedate experience,
Heinmuller suggests taking
the run earlier in the day dur-
ing the week. You are apt to


see more wildlife, such as the
otters that have adapted to the
invasion of humans better
than some of the other
wildlife of the area. He sug-
gests bringing a mask and
snorkel to experience the
underwater sights as well as
those along the riverbank.
The park is a local treasure
and, according to Heinmuller,
"we aim to keep it that way."
Rules are enforced: No food,
no beverages in disposable
containers (canteens are OK),
no pets, no cigarettes or


trees and the unknown
wildlife that live along the
banks of the river. Lightning
could strike the tree you are
clasping, or the tree could fall
over. Your safest course is to
try to reach the nearest drop
off point as quickly as possi-
ble.
You don't have your own
tube no problem. In and
around both entrances to the
park, independent businesses
will rent you a tube or raft in a
wide range of styles. Niko
Alissandratos, on-sight man-
ager of Ichetucknee Family
Canoe and Cabins, says peo-
ple begin showing up as early
as 7 a.m. to.,pick their favorite
tube type from their location
outside the North Entrance to
the park. Strong advocates of
life vests, they encourage
their use by non-swimmers or
small children taking on the
challenge of the river. Marie
Hemming, a British
Columbian now living in
Gainesville, had been kayak-
ing the river a few weeks ago
and saw two-baby manatees
frolicking in the water. She
was back this week to share
the river with her kids and her
mother who was visiting from
Vancouver. Unfortunately, the
manatees had headed down

Family Canoe and Cabins.


tobacco products on the river
(smoking is allowed in desig-
nated areas) and no removal
of any plants or animals.
This being Florida, thun-
derstorms are a way of life
during the summer months. If
it is threatening to storm,
don't go out. If you're already
on the river, Heinmuller has
the following advice: Never
leave the water. The biggest
threats are lightning, falling


the river. Heinmuller says the
spotting of baby manatees on
the Ichetucknee is an unusual
and encouraging thing.
For family fun, consider the
Florida Family Pass for $80
(plus tax), up to eight people
can enter almost every
Florida State Park as often as
desired. Passes are for sale
on-line at www.floridas-
tateparks.org and at the park
office.

Lovebugs are in the air


DON
GOODE


Lovebugs have inspired
rumors, curses and chuckles.
Typically we see these insects
hovering in the air while
joined together hence the
nicknames "Lovebug" and
"Honeymoon Fly." With the
female usually being bigger,
the male doesn't get much
say so in the travel plans.
Two flights of Lovebugs
occur each year in April/May
and August/September.
Some people generalized
these times to the "A" months
to remember when the
Lovebugs will be coming.
Lovebugs (Plecia nearcti-
ca) are technically not bugs
but rather are considered flies
belonging to the March Fly
family. While there are sever-
al species of March Fly native
to Florida, Lovebugs are
invaders from Central
America.
Rumors that the University


GA R :DE H:E


of Florida introduced
Lovebugs into Florida to con-
trol mosquitos are not true.
Hurricane winds have been
speculated as to how the
Lovebugs were introduced
from Central America to
Louisiana (first reported
there in 1920.) From there,
they migrated around the
Gulf of Mexico and to other
southern States by natural
movement and population
increases. Regarding mosqui-
to eating, Lovebugs are vege-
tarians and do not eat other
insects.
Lovebug larvae (young)
are in the form of long, slen-
der fly maggots. They eat
organic matter and release
the nutrients for nearby
plants thus serving as natural
recyclers. They like moist
areas under partially decayed
plant materials and under
manure patties.
Where Lovebugs cause
problems is on the highway,
hindering visibility from wind-
shield splatters, potentially
damaging automotive paint,
and clogging radiators if in
high enough numbers. They
are attracted to automobile
exhaust fumes (when
exposed to the sun.) If the


splattered body is allowed to
remain on the vehicle for sev-
eral days, bacteria will start
breaking down the fatty tis-
sues, increasing the acidity,
thus causing the damage to
the paint. A grill screen can
help protect the radiator. A
coat of automotive wax can
make clean up easier. Some
people recommend a light
coating of baby oil on the car
to aid in Lovebug clean up. If
applied too heavily, however,
the wind sheer can cause the
oil to migrate to the wind-
shield adding to the visibility
problem.
While no chemical control
measures have been found to
be economically effective,
research is under way at the
University of Florida regard-
ing naturally occurring fungi
that attack the Lovebug lar-
vae. Drought conditions also
reduce their populations.
Lovebug larvae are suscepti-
ble to foraging birds such as
robins and quail. Some
predatory insects such as
earwigs, beetles and cen-
tipedes eat the larvae.
Observations also suggest
that armadillos may also eat
the larvae. I'm not sure I'm
ready for a pet armadillo

What if college education wasn't limited to a classroom?


By MARY MILLER
LCCC, A.A.S. Valedictorian, 2005
What would possess a
woman with two teenagers at
home, two small grandchil-
dren, and her own after-hours
commercial cleaning compa-
ny to join a college club while
attending college as a full-
time student? Insanity? Go
ahead and call me insane,
because I joined Lake City
Community College's award-
winning business team,
Students in Free Enterprise
(SIFE).
LCCC joined SIFE as a
team seven years ago. Out of
those seven years, the SIFE
team has won the U.S. region-
als six years running, this
year is no exception. SIFE is
on 1800 college campuses in
40 countries. You take the
information learned in the col-
lege business classes and use
it to create and teach business


lessons to -
community V
groups. You
will enjoy
working
with. chil-
dren and M
find SIFE to Miller
be the per-
fect fit. Working with elemen-
tary children and at-risk high
school seniors was the out-
reach for many projects. You
find yourself learning along
with the students as they are
taught.
There are many clubs on
campus available to join, but
SIFE was very active on cam-
pus as well as off campus.
Whether it was Spring Fling,
Fall Fest or Black History
day, SIFE was always there.
This year they completed
over 34 projects that's
almost one project for each
week of the two semesters,


and reached over 5,000 peo-
ple.
The SIFE club has traveled
each year to compete in
Regional competitions and
has won every time. One of
our sweetest victories was the
year we went to New York and
competed against Harvard's
SIFE team. Other years our
competitions took us to New
Orleans, Atlanta, Tampa, and
Orlando. Of course, there
were field trips, such as when
Mayor Guiliani arranged a
personal tour, just for SIFE, of
the devastated World Trade
Center site in May of 2002.
The club had raised $2500 for
his Twin Towers funds for
families of the injured rescue
workers.
Anytime a trip was planned
with Professor Carder, our
SIFE advisor, it was an adven-
ture. For instance, in New
Orleans, we surveyed local


entrepreneurs. Would it sur-
prise you to know that one
man sold his wife's pralines
on the same street corner for
30 years? And that he made
$50,000 a year doing it?
It was great to be able to
travel and see other teams
competing. It was also a great
feeling to be on a winning
team. The SIFE team leaves
this week to attend the nation-
als in Kansas City, Missouri,
where they will compete with
250 teams from throughout
the Unite States. At nationals
you meet with major corpora-
tions like Wal-Mart, Radio
Shack, and Walgreen's, and to
have a chance for a career
with these companies. These
major corporations sponsor
SIFE, which has an interna-
tional budget of $15 million
dollars. SIFE is no ordinary
college club.
These Fortune 500 employ-


ers are always looking for pos-
sible employees, especially
ones that were SIFE mem-
bers. SIFE members have
faced a wide range of chal-
lenges, from recruiting new
members and developing
innovative educational pro-
grams, to using the mass
media to publicize the team's
efforts. SIFE develops team-
work, leadership, and com-
munication skills far beyond
those of most college stu-
dents.
Overall the favorite group
to work with has been the Girl
Scouts. Every year "Live
Monopoly" was a chosen proj-
ect. Over 500 volunteer hours
were involved in creating the
Monopoly town. The girls
were taught how to earn and
budget money. Small busi-
nesses were set up for them
to work in, to earn wages.
They would then cash their


"paychecks," and decide
which of the attractive gifts
and services they wanted to
spend their hard-earned
money on. My part was the
"Price is Right" game. The
girls that had money left over
would be awarded tickets to
participate in the game. This
was always the highlight of
the day. In my first year doing
"Live Monopoly," we camped
out with the Girls Scouts and
stayed in unheated cabins in
January.
Now it is held in the LCCC
gym, which is a much
warmer experience for
everyone involved. Now that
graduation has come and
one thing missed most
about my college days is
SIFE. Statistics show that
students who participate in
extracurricular activities are
more successful in college. I
second that notion.

Market continues to grow as sales pick up with summer
u-,- ''m n '. __ ,, -.",


By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter. corn

As kids flow out of schools
to enjoy the more idle days of
summer, so can come an
uptick in residential real
estate sales.
With the real estate market
throughout North Central
Florida already scorching, the
hottest months of the year
could set it fully ablaze by fall.
Debbie Myles, broker asso-
ciate and co-owner of the
Century 21 Darby-Rogers
Company in Lake City, said
the asking and sale prices of
residential properties in
Columbia County are already
increasing monthly with June
and July likely to continue
that trend.
"Usually June and July are
very good months," Myles
said.
Though there is usually a
slow down at the end of May,
as people focus on early sum-
mer vacations or their chil-
dren's final days of school,
she said there is a strong
rebound for the remainder of
summer. But in Columbia
County and the surrounding
areas, Myles said there has
been no such drop off.
"Right now is still in a very
big swing upward," she said.
For both single-family
homes and vacant residential
lots, Myles said the "values
have really increased signifi-
cantly ... they just seem like
they continue to rise."
"In our opinion, it's certain-
ly a seller's market right now,"
she said.
And during the summer,
Myles said the residential
activity usually increases
because it is the time of year
when people undertake job
transfers or families who've
been considering buying a
home wait until summer to


make offers, so not as to inter-
rupt their child's school year.
"So usually it's been a good
time to sell a home," she said.
Dan Gherna, executive vice
president and chief executive
officer of the Lake City Board
of Realtors, said in the local
real estate market "there's no
bad time now."
Previously, he said, there
were noticeable slowdowns
around Christmas and just
before summer, "but by judg-
ing on what's coming through
the MLS (multiple listing
service), I haven't seen any
signs of slowing down (in any
season)."
Indeed, said Myles, noting
that not only are there offers
made on most desirable prop-
erties within a short time, but
multiple offers at that.
Though there have been
few bidding wars and no need
for escalatory clauses (pre-
determined agreements to
pay a higher price to beat a
competing offer) in local sales
contracts, she said for many
properties there is often seri-
ous interest from more than
one buyer. In particular,
Myles said, foreclosure prop-
erties are often getting multi-
ple offers.
She also said much of the
interest for both homes and
vacant land is not from area
people, but instead from
South Florida. Particularly, in
the case of the land, she said
many people from that part of
the state are recognizing land
in the area as rapidly increas-
ing in value and buying it as
an investment, with possibly
no intentions of living here.
Or, if they do, it may be years
from now.
Regardless, Myles said the
inventory has remained low
around the area, with some
properties never making it to
a public listing before they are

June and July likely to see that trend continue.


sold.
For local people if they
aren't already they could
soon find themselves priced
out of the market, especially if
they are looking into moving
to an upgrade of the home
they're already in.
Myles said, "it could be if
they want to sell their home
and upgrade to the next level,
they are going to have to get a
significant amount (on the
sale)," she said.
Gherna said for someone
locally who ij considering
buying property, "if they find


something they want, they
better jump on it."
"It's really a big deal," he
said.
Myles said at some point
the local market should level
off, but as long as there is lit-
tle inventory and steady
demand, that won't happen.
She said the market's
prices could hinge largely on
whether the county can
amend its comprehensive
land use plan to expand its
Designated Urban
Development Area and create
the opportunity to develop


more smaller half to 1-acre
lots around the Lake City
area.
Otherwise, she said the
value of the existing proper-
ties will continue to be high.
"I don't know where the cap
is going to be, hopefully it will
level off," Myles said. "I don't
know if you will see the prices
go down unless the market
goes way down. But I just
don't see Lake City's market
going backward. I think it's
going to continue to go for-
ward."
And there doesn't appear to


be a slowdown in the number
of people looking to capitalize
on the growth of the local
real-estate market either.
Since this time last year,
Gherna said the Lake City
Board of Realtors has
increased its membership
from about 220 members to
325, with 50 joining just since
Jan. 1.
While Myles said there is
still room for more people to
work in the local real estate
market, she made no bones
about the heavy competition
for listings and sales.

Local Nextel
dealer awarded
Kennedy Communications
of Lake City recently was
named the top Nextel dealer
of the first quarter of 2005
for North Florida and South
Georgia.
Employees of Kennedy
Communication were hon-
ored with a large trophy for
their efforts.
The quarterly award is
based on new customer acti-
vations within the three-
month time period.


General Motors Corp. and
Ford Motor Co.
May's slower pace can be
attributed to higher gas
prices, rising car loan rates
and weak consumer confi-
dence, Burnham Securities
analyst David Healy said in a
research note. Automakers
are scheduled to release May
sales figures June 1.
So far this year, the Big
Three's average incentives
per vehicle have been around
$3,700, or $400 less than
their peak in 2004, Healy
said.


Economy on the Summer flight
move. so far pattern is full

WASHINGTON -
Economic activity
advanced at a solid 3.5 per-
cent pace in the first quarter
of the year, somewhat better
than initially thought.
The latest reading on
gross domestic product,
released by the Commerce
Department on Thursday,
raised hopes that there is
enough momentum to main-
tain economic expansion and
job growth in the months
ahead.

N.Y. attorney
general files suit
ALBANY, N.Y. New
York Attorney General Eliot
Spitzer on Thursday filed a
civil suit against American
International Group Inc.,
accusing the nation's largest
insurance company and two
former top executives of
using "deception and fraud"
to boost the company's stock
price.
The suit accused AIG's for-
mer chief executive, Maurice
"Hank" Greenberg, and for-
mer chief financial officer,
Howard I. Smith, of orches-
trating an accounting scheme
that made AIG's financial pic-
ture appear brighter than it
was. The lawsuit accuses
AIG of employing a variety of
questionable accounting
devices.
Auto sales stall,
cuts to come?
DETROIT After stir-
prisingly strong auto sales in
April, analysts predict
demand was lower in May, a
trend that could mean fur-
ther production cuts at


WASHINGTON Fliers
beware: This summer vaca-
tion season could rival 2000,
the worst ever for flight
delays, cancellations and
cranky travelers crammed
into airport terminals.
Takeoffs are now return-
ing to pre-Sept. 11, 2001, lev-
els, and millions of tickets
have already been sold.
Security-related delays are a
concern, and so is one thing
that no one controls: Mother
Nature.
Hot, humid air produces
summer thunderstorms, typi-
cally in a zone that stretches
from Texas to Michigan.

China's currency
ready for change
WASHINGTON China
is likely to move within
months to adopt a more flexi-
ble currency system as U.S.
officials have been prodding
it to do, Treasury Secretary
John Snow said Thursday.
However, skeptical law-
makers said'the Chinese
were not likely to scrap their
current system unless the
Bush administration applies
more pressure.
Critics say the current
Chinese system, by linking
the yuan's value to the U.S.
dollar, has made the yuan too
cheap, thus making Chinese
goods less expensive in the
United States and American
goods more expensive in
China.
American manufacturers
say this has given China
tremendous trade advantages
that have contributed to U.S.
trade deficit that hit a record
$617 billion last year.

House Plan of the Week


In the world of duplexes, four
bedroom units are rare. The Toliver
has four bedrooms, plus a whopping
three bathrooms as well! Family liv-
ing spaces are on the ground floor;
bedrooms, along with two of the
bathrooms, are upstairs.
This two-story duplex works
well as a townhouse. The plan is as
economical to build as it is to main-
tain, and its compact footprint fits
neatly on a narrow lot. Multipaned
windows give the building a charm-
ing, cottage look.
Each of the mirror-imaged units
offer nearly 1,300 square feet of liv-
ing space, plus a deep one-car garage.
Since they are totally similar, only
one will be described.
Living, dining and kitchen areas
flow together at the rear, where glass
fills much of the wall. Sliders in the
dining room open onto a patio. The
kitchen is enclosed on three sides, but
totally open to the dining area at the
rear.
Counters and cupboards are
amply supplied in this step-saving
floor plan. The big three-refrigera-
tor, stove and sink-are set in a tight
triangle, so it's easy to move from
one to the other.
Laundry appliances are nearby as
well, in a passthrough utility hallway
that links the house and garage. The
powder room there is as handy for a
quick dash in from playing, as it is
convenient for the main floor rooms.
Upstairs, a surprisingly large
walk-in closet hides behind a pocket
door in the Toliver's master bath-
room. The other three bedrooms
share another bathroom, which is out-
fitted with a combination tub and
shower. Linen storage is in good sup-
ply, with one closet in the upper hall-
way, and another in the shared bath-
room.
For a review plan, including
scaled floor plans, elevations, section
and artist's conception, send $25 to
Associated Designs, 1100 Jacobs Dr.,
Dept. W, Eugene, OR 97402. Please
specify the Toliver 60-020 and
include a return address when order-
ing. A catalog featuring more than
400 home plans is available for $15.
