By JUSTIN LANG

A former employee of
ClientLogic's Lake City call
center is joining a civil lawsuit
that alleges the company violat-
ed state and federal labor laws
by failing to pay employees for
hours worked.
Chad Harper said when he
found out about the suit filed in
a New York federal court by
two employees at ClientLogic's
former Buffalo facility, he real-
ized he had a similar experi-
ence working at its local call
center.
Former New York employ-
ees Martin J. Hens and Paul
Van Voorhees originated the
suit on May 31 and allege they
and co-workers were not paid
for overtime work as required
by the federal Fair Labor
Standards Act and New York
state laws.

Olustee fFestival pays $3M in dividends


Festival visitors spend
millions in county
while attending event.
By JUSTIN LANG
jlang@lakecityreporter.com
A report compiled by
University of Florida
researchers has determined
visitors to the annual Olustee
Battle Festival and
Reenactment spend more
than $3 million in Columbia
County.
The report looked at the
impact of the major local
event as part of an ongoing
"Study of Tourist Behaviors
in Columbia County" by UF's
Center for Tourism Research
and Development.
The report's data comes
from a survey of 341 men and
women out of the estimated
40,000 who visited the
Olustee Battle Festival down-
town and 30,000 at the
Olustee Battlefield east of
Lake City over a three-day
period in February.
Out of its sample size, the
researchers found that about
74 percent were Floridians
from counties other than
Columbia, and 26 were from
out of state. Of those who
were in town just for the fes-
tival, they were estimated to
have spent an average of
$100 per day at the festival
itself and $78 per day at the
re-enactment, making for an
overall average of $90 per day
for the visitors.
Based on those results,
researchers concluded that
from the thousands attending
the event, they spent an esti-
mated total of $2 million at
the festival and $1.17 million
at the battlefield a total of

Library branches to offer

fun, learning for children


Summer programs give kids a
variety of experiences, from
snakes to Smokey the Bear.
By JASMINE RANGEL
jrangel@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia County libraries will fea-
ture more than just books this summer.
Summer programs at the various
county libraries will be offering a vari-
ety of activities and shows for kids.
From story time to educational presen-
tations, there's something available
almost every week day until the end of
July.
Wednesday was the first of the week-
ly afternoon school-age programs at the
West Branch Library, 435 NW Hall of


Fame Drive.
Patti Martin, volunteer coordinator
and interpretive chairwoman at
Ichetucknee Springs State Park,
brought some of the park's reptiles for a
group of about 20 children and their
parents at West Branch.
The children "oohed" and "aahed"
over Bob and Sebastian, two different
kinds of snakes, and Peter Pan and
Wendy, a pair of gopher tortoises.
The reptile showcase was an educa-
tional session, with Martin and her vol-
unteers teaching the children about the
habitats, diets and behavior of the rep-
tiles she brought.
The gopher tortoises elicited giggles.

Dead



birds



often



signal



threat

But state, county no
longer performing
tests on dead animals.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
In this area of the country,
there is nothing unusual about
finding dead birds and the car-
casses of animals that have
turned up as roadkill.
With all the media coverage
about the West Nile virus,
which has caused deaths in
other areas of the country,
local residents are concerned
about mosquitoes that could
spread the disease.
Over the last two years,
there have been confirmed
cases of dead birds that have
died from the West Nile virus
found in Columbia County,
which would explain why a
local resident, Elizabeth
Chapman, was concerned
when she found two dead
crows in her south Columbia
County neighborhood.
Chapman said she found the
dead birds lying on the road at
the intersection of SW Pleasant
Road and SW Newark Road in
the Three River Subdivision in
Fort White.
She said she believes the
crows died sometime Monday.
'They were not there
Monday morning when I went
to work," she said.
She said someone noticed
the first dead crow Tuesday
morning and by 9 a.m., the
other crow was found.
'There was no trauma to
those birds. It didn't look like
someone shot or hit them," she
said. "It's not only the birds,
but the squirrels are dying
from West Nile also. I've buried
two birds in my yard so far, and
that was last week."
She said those birds weren't
crows, one was a red bird and
the other a smaller bird.
She called the Columbia
County Environmental Health
Department, and the Columbia

LCCC to come alive with N



'Sound of Music' June 17 m


By ASHLEY CISNEROS
acisneroslakecityreporter. corn
The Lake City Community
College Alfonso Levy
Performing Arts center will be
alive with "The Sound of
Music" June 17-19.
Performances will take
place on the 17th and 18th at
7:30 p.m., with additional 3
p.m. performances on the 18th
and 19th.
Tony Mata, associate pro-
fessor of theater and dance at


the University of Florida, is
directing the production.
Several undergraduate and
graduate students are per-
forming as actors, set design-
ers and costume designers for
the play. Mata said his demand
for discipline and high expec-
tations surprised some mem-
bers of the cast and crew.
"But they proved they were
up for it," he said. I have a
formula for a polished show
that I instill in my students and
cast, and I think the end result


of this production will be
pleasing."
The cast, orchestra and
crew is made up of 75 people
from Lake City, Gainesville
and the surrounding areas.
"I have always wanted to do
this play because it is an iconic
kind of show in America,"
Mata said. "It was also the last
musical Rogers and
Hammerstein wrote together."
Mata has also directed
"Carousel" and "Oklahoma!,"
and many other productions.


"Everyone knows this play,"
he said.
"People come in knowing
what they are getting because
there is such a following for
this show."
Lake City resident Harry
Wuest will conduct the orches-
tra.
"I think it's one of the best
things we've done," he said.
Children's tickets are $5 and
students, seniors and LCCC
staff get in for $8.
Regular tickets are $9.

Land use


plan needed


in Lake City

The ruckus at Southern Oaks Country
Club over a planned 100-unit condominium
development shows the sensitivity resi-
dents have to land values and the need for
more comprehensive land use planning.
Some residents are concerned that the
condominium development, planned by
local developer Daniel Crapps and three
partners, would erode the value of single
family homes in the golf community. This is
despite the fact that Crapps is planning to
sell the condos for $200,000-$350,000,
prices comparable to what detached single
family units in the community fetch.
The country club, is located outside city
limits. So is the land upon which the condo-
miniums would be built. It is therefore not
governed by zoning restrictions. Crapps
has expressed interest in annexing the
property to the city of Lake City. Now some
Southern Oaks homeowners want to annex
the community into Lake City so the city
can zone the condos out.
It is unfortunate that news of a develop-
ment some residents don't want was neces-
sary to wake people up to the realization
that unless they have protective laws or
covenants restricting the use of a parcel of
land, it can be turned into almost anything.
Residents should be glad that high-dollar
condos will be going up instead of some-
thing incompatible.
If they are built, well-heeled retirees and
offers will gobble up the condos just like
they have a countless other golf clubs
across the state. And, they'll pay greens and
cart fees at the country club, holding down
prices for current residents, and buy food,
cars, furniture and other items locally to
boost the economy.
This situation shows again what has been
said many times: Growth is coming to Lake
City and Columbia County and it is coming
fast. We can either manage it or be man-
aged by it.


Today is Thursday, June 9, the 160th day
of 2005. There are 205 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:
On June 9, A.D. 68, the Roman Emperor
Nero committed suicide.

On this date:
In 1870, author Charles Dickens died in
Godshill, England.
In 1940, Norway surrendered to the
Nazis during World War II.
In 1953, about 100 people died when a
tornado struck Worcester, Mass.
In 1954, during the Senate-Army
Hearings, Army special counsel Joseph N.
Welch asked Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy:
"Have you no sense of decency, sir?"
In 1969, the U.S. Senate confirmed
Warren Burger to be the new chief justice
of the United States, succeeding Earl
Warren.
In 1973, Secretariat became horse rac-
ing's first Triple Ciown winner in 25 years
by winning the Belmont Stakes.
In 1978, leaders of the Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-Day Saints struck down a
148-year-old policy of excluding black men
from the Mormon priesthood.
In 1980, comedian Richard Pryor suf-
fered almost fatal burns at his San
Fernando Valley, Calif., home when a mix-


ture of "free-base" cocaine exploded.

I ET E T HE E ITOR-


Stand up, America
In a recent letter to the editor,
a gentleman was citing the
unfairness of a Court Marshal
for the men and women
involved in the prison scandal in
Iraq.
I agree with him. Why
should we punish these individ-
uals for following orders com-
ing from as high up as the
President and Secretary of
Defense, stating that Geneva
Convention Rules could be set
aside in certain interrogations.
Why should we condemn
these young men and women
for following orders?
The accountability should
have been placed in the correct
place the Commanding
Officers.
These soldiers did not have
interrogation training. They
were placed in a situation that
they should not have been in.


During the Korean War, I
was a trained interrogator for
military prisoners. The first
problem seems to be cameras.
No cameras were allowed in the
area. With today's technology,
pictures can be made to look
like anything you want to cause
the Iraq people to hate us even
more than they already do. I
know I am not proud of what I
did, but I served my country to
the best of my ability, as these
young men and women have
done.
Why are we willing to ruin
their lives when they were
untrained and placed in a posi-
tion that the only thing that
could happen would be disas-
ter?
The Commanding Officers
are the ones that should be held
accountable for the soldiers'
actions. What we are doing is
totally un-American.


What we did in Korea would
have made these people look
like Boy Scouts. We cannot say
we have never done this or
much worse in the past. Cry out
America, save the young people
from further pain and disgrace
the rest of their lives. Please
contact your senators and rep-
resentatives.
If something wrong has been
done, a greater power than the
government or "top brass" will
be the judge.
We all live with our shame of
breaking God's law everyday.
We don't need more punish-
ment. Please help these sol-
diers. They do not deserve this
kind of treatment. They should
be returned to duty and allowed
to carry on with their lives.
Stand up America for what is
right.

LOCAL


GRADES
Continued From Page 1A
grades, three schools
decreased, five remained the
same and one school didn't
receive a grade.
Eastside Elementary became
the first school in district histo-
ry to have three consecutive
years as an A school and was
joined by Columbia City
Elementary School as the coun-
ty's only A schools.
On the other side of the rain-
bow, Columbia High School
was rated as a D school even
though its raw numbers indicat-
ed it should have been ranked
as a C school.
"I'm disappointed that CHS
made a D," said Grady 'Sam'


Markham, Columbia School
District Superintendent of
Schools. "We know what
caused it. It was the lower 25
percent, who is required to
make 50 percent gains from
one year to the next and they
had 43 percent. By seven small
percentage points, they made a
D. We know what caused it and
we know what we have to do to
fix it.
"We will fix it next year. We
know we've got to do a better
job working with our bottom
percentile of children."
The biggest improvement by
a county school was made at
Niblack Elementary, which
increased its score by two letter
grades. Niblack went from
being an F school last year to a


C school in 2004-05.
"I'm very proud of our school
grades," said Markham. "I was
very excited for Niblack to have
the success they had and get
rid of that old label. And to jump
two grades in one year, from an
F to a C is fantastic. I think it's
to the credit of the leadership
and staff of that school that they
made it work and the hard work
of the kids. Getting rid of an F
proves hard work and dedica-
tion works."
Summers Elementary
School and Lake City Middle
School both were ranked as B
schools this year, improving
their C rankings from last year.
'However, several of the coun-
ty's other schools were not able
to maintain their A rankings.


Westside Elementary, which
had been ranked as an A school
for two consecutive years,
dropped to a B, as well as Five
Points Elementary and Fort
White Elementary, who both
received their first A rankings
last year.
The remainder of Columbia
County Schools Melrose
Park, Richardson Middle
School and Fort White High
School were ranked as C
schools. Challenge Learning
Center did not receive a grade.
According to reports from
Tallahassee, Gov. Bush and
Commissioner of Education
John Winn said that despite
tougher standards, close to
three quarters of Florida's pub-
lic schools are high perform-


ing. The governor noted that
.this year's scores include
Florida's increased standards
for writing and the inclusion of
Students with Disabilities
(SWD) and Limited English
Proficient (LEP) students in the
calculation.
State reports show that 71
percent of schools achieved an
"A" or "B" grade, with 463
schools improving their grade.
The number of schools
receiving A and B rankings will
also mean additional dollars for
several schools.
"This is the first time since
we started grading our schools,
that we had seven of our
schools make an A or B,"
Markham said.
He said the school district


could get more than $600,000
that can be spent on each
school because of FCAT
results, and that means the
seven schools are going to have
on average about $100 more
per student to spend.
He said the money goes to
the individual school accounts
and will be spent based on the
discretion of each school's advi-
sory committee.
In the 2000-01 school year,
Melrose Park Elementary and
Lake City Middle School
became the first two county
schools to get an A. However,
since then, neither school has
gotten, better than a B and no
other secondary school has
received an A.


LIBRARY

Bob, a Southern hognose,
drew gasps. But it was
Sebastian, a seven-foot Eastern
indigo, that left the kids
speechless.
In case the children ever
encountered these animals in
the wild, Martin gave them
advice.
"Please if you ever see a
snake in your yard, holler
'snake' and run," she said.
Martin made it clear that it's
often difficult to distinguish
between poisonous and non-
poisonous snakes, so it's best
to leave them all alone.
The program became more
interactive when the children
were invited to come up and
pet Sebastian.
The reptile program was just
one of a weekly Wednesday
series for children. Upcoming
weeks' activities include a K-9
trainer, a musical instrument
showcase and Smokey Bear.
The weekly Wednesday
West Branch programs are not
the only part of the libraries'
summer schedule. The West
Branch is also hosting family
story hour every Monday at 11
a.m. and special Tuesday after-
noon and night shows.
The Tuesday shows require
tickets, but there is no charge.
All programs are open to the
public.


Niblack bounces back from 'F' in a 1


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.comn

What a difference a year
makes.
Last year when school
grades came out, Niblack
Elementary School Principal
Narrie Smith had to humbly
wipe away the tears and dis-
cuss why the school had
been ranked as an F school
in the Gov. Jeb Bush's A+
plan.
She and her staff lived and
worked with the F rating, but
over the next 12 months,
changes were made.
Teachers gave up their
personal time and came in
and worked on Saturdays,
attended additional teacher
in-service training courses
and a record number of vol-
unteer hours were put in at
the school.
The result speaks for
itself.
This year Niblack
Elementary School and its
students made the largest
increase in school grades in
the county, going from an F-
ranked school to become a
C-ranked school.
"The school grade for this
yeai is outstanding," Smith
said. "This is the result of a
lot of hard work by our stu-
dents, faculty and staff, as


TONY BRITT/Lake City Reporter
Niblack Elementary School principal (from left) Narrie Smith, goes over Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test data Wednesday with L.C. Bradley, Columbia School
District Assistant Superintendent of Instructions.


. well as the support from our
district and our community."
The first year Niblack
received a school grade, the
2001-02 school year, the
school was rated as a D
school and never managed to
improve its score despite test
data indicating students were
making gains until this


year. The school's score
went from 260 points as an F
school to 349 points as a C
school.
To improve student scores
this year, Smith said a new
writing strategy was imple-
mented and new methods of
analyzing student data were
introduced with Sunshine


State Standards being the
focus. Also, fourth and fifth
grade classes were depart-
mentalized, community men-
tors now spend more time at
the school and students were
tested weekly to ensure they
had mastered their skills.
Last year Smith said she
was surprised the school


big way
received the F ranking, but
this year she said she felt vin-
dicated even though she
admitted there is more work
to do.
"We still have goals," she
said. "We are still shooting to
improve even more. We will
continue to analyze the data,
identify areas where we still
need to improve and take the
necessary training to meet
those goals."
"I'm so excited for
Niblack," said L.C. Bradley,
Columbia Schools Assistant
Superintendent of Schools. "I
really understand the plight
that they have been under
this past academic year. I
applaud the leadership, the
instructional staff and the
student body and I have to
include parts of the commu-
nity, which has embraced
this school and gave them
the resources necessary to
be successful."
Smith also said she
noticed a big change in the
amount of community sup-
port the school received this
school year.
"The community rallied
around us," she said. "We
had more volunteer hours
this year than we've ever had
since this has been an ele-
mentary school. It made a
tremendous difference."

LAKE CITY REPORTER, THURSDAY, JUNE 9, 2005 9A


T.LfAT.


OLUSTEE
Continued From Page 1A

about $3.17 million for the
weekend.
Harvey Campbell, executive
director of the Columbia
County Tourist Development,
said the report and such infor-
mation will now be helpful in
recruiting regional and national
sponsors for the Olustee Battle
Festival and Re-enactment.
Campbell said many of those
corporate sponsors require


detailed demographic data
before considering signing on
to sponsor an event.
"Certainly for sponsors it
gives us invaluable stuff," he
said. "At least now we have a
basis."
The report failed the deter-
mine the overall impact to the
local economy, stating "this is
not economic impact, but just
estimation of total spending of
visitors. We can not calculate
the economic impact of the fes-
tival."
Still, though it is unknown


exactly how much in total the
festival pumps into the local
economy, Campbell said using
the figures gleamed by the
study along with a formula that
is standard in the tourism
industry, he estimates the local
impact to be more than $9 mil-
lion. That amount would take
into consideration the impact
at hotels, restaurants and retail
stores, he said.
Not surprisingly, the pri-
mary reason for visiting the
county of those surveyed was
attending the festival or battle-


field reenactment at 53 per-
cent, followed by business pur-
poses at 11 percent and visiting
friends or family at 9 percent.
The remaining 18 percent
gave various reasons for their
visit, including volunteering,
camping, outdoor recreation
and shopping.
Also, according to the
report, more than 40 percent
of those who visited the event
were on a day trip, while less
than 10 percent spent one
night, 35 percent spent two
nights and 10 percent stayed


four nights or more.
Of those who stayed
overnight during the festival
and reenactment, 29 percent
stayed in local hotels, 26 per-
cent bedded down with area
relatives and 25 percent used
area campgrounds. The report
concluded that less than 1 per-
cent stayed in bed and break-
fasts, which are scarce in
Columbia County.
Additional determinations
from the study include:
67 percent of visitors
"agreed or strongly agreed"


they would return to Columbia
County for a visit and 9 percent
disagreed that they would.
About 86 of respondents
agreed that they enjoyed their
time in the county, while 4 per-
cent said they didn't.
Of those surveyed,
according to the report, 54 per-
cent were under 50 years old,
about 64 percent lived with a
spouse or companion at home
and about 53 percent had an
annual household income
more than $50,000.

decision to join the suit. "I'm not
looking for any extra money or
anything like that. I just want
the pay that I was owed."
A Fort White resident, the
18-year-old Harper said he
worked at the local call center
as a technical support agent
from March until May for about
$7 an hour when he became
frustrated and left for a differ-
ent job.
According to his declaration,
which he is in the process of fil-
ing with the U.S. District Court
for the Western District of New
York, Harper said everyday
during the last two weeks of his
work at ClientLogic, he and oth-
ers were asked to "clock out"
and wait for superiors to give
permission to go back on the
clock once there were more
tech support calls to take.
He said at times the unsched-
uled breaks were twice a day,
sometimes for 30 minutes and
sometimes for as much as an
hour. This was in addition to his
regular unpaid lunch break of
30 minutes on Monday and
Tuesday with one hour the rest
of the week, he said.
'We were not allowed to
leave the building during this
time," Harper alleged in his
declaration. "(A manager) told
us we would be fired if we left
the building during this time.
Sometimes I performed work,
including finishing telephone
calls and doing 'CLS Scrubs' -
forms that had to be filled out as
a follow-up to certain customer
calls during these 'breaks.'"
Harper said when he first
began working at ClientLogic
he worked and was paid for 40
hours a week, but as tech sup-
port calls became less, he was
asked to clock out, watching his
paid hours dwindle, but still
being required to be at work.
He also alleges in his declara-
tion that employees were told to
be at work 30 minutes before
their shift began everyday to
set up their computers and be

ready to take calls as soon as
they went on the clock. Harper
said there was no pay for the
"pre-shift" work.
"I know it doesn't seem like
much, but it adds up," he said.
At times, after his workday
was over at 5 p.m., he also
alleges that he was required to
fill out "CLS Scrubs."
According to his declaration,
Harper said a manager told him
"we had to fill out CLS Scrubs
off the clock."
At other times, Harper also
alleges that he worked five to 20
minutes into his lunch break,
but was not compensated.
A spokesman for ClientLogic
did not return phone messages
left by the Lake City Reporter
Wednesday.
When he first began working
at ClientLogic in March, Harper
said it was busy and he took
one customer call after another.
But by the time he left in May,
he said there were periods
where when time between calls
spanned 30 seconds to 10 min-
utes.

DEAD BIRDS
Continued From Page 1A

County Sheriff's Office and was
told by health department offi-
cials they are not collecting any
more bird samples.
'They told me to bury them,"
she said. "I live down the road,
why would I bury them? I don't
think the sanitation department
wants to bury them."
Columbia County
Environmental Health
Department director Mark
Lander said the state
Department of Health is not
tracking the West Nile virus
anymore in dead birds, because
they know the virus is here.
"They'll do a location of that
bird, based on its county and
location and if there is an abnor-
mally large number of dead
birds, officials could issue a
West Nile virus alert," he said.
'We just want the people to
remember West Nile is here
and they should take precau-
tions."
'We still want to know at the
Environmental Health
Department when we have
dead birds, but we are not test-
ing anymore," he said.
He said people can provide
the information about dead
birds they find on the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission Web site at
www. wildflorida. org/bird.
He said people will be asked
to give the location of the dead
bird and that is how state offi-
cials are tracking bird mortality
rates this year.
A few years ago state officials


Mosquito safety
As a precaution to avoid the
mosquitoes that carry the
West Nile Virus. Mark Lander
with the Columbia Couniv
Environmental Health
Department says residents
should:

arid dawn.
use mosquito repellent
with DEET.
and if you have to be out
at those hours, wear long
sleeves to avoid conLact with
mosquitoes.
To submit information about
dead birds, you can log or, to
wvni.wildrlortda.org/bird or call
the Columbia County
Environmental Health
Department at 758-1058, and
health department officials will
enter the information into the
state data base.

were tracking the West Nile
Virus by tracking birds, such as
crows and blue jays.
While crows and bluejays
showed the highest mortality
rates to the virus, Lander said
all bird mortality information
could be entered to the site and
state data base.
Meanwhile, Chapman said
he she has sent an e-mail to the
Web site and requested mos-
quito spraying in her area.
Chapman lives in the Three
Rivers Estates Area, which has
surrounded Suwannee River,
Santa Fe and Ichetucknee
River, and she says the area has
an above normal mosquito pop-
ulation.
"They said they will put me
on the list," she laughed. She
said she was told they only
spray in her area by request

A big day in

Lake City

hat we wit-
nessed on
Tuesday
does not
often hap-
pen in this community.
Michael Kirkman is Lake
City's own, born and raised.
And now he has an opportu-
nity that so many dream
about but only a few get to
achieve. Kirkman is going to
try to make it to the Major
Leagues.
The fact that he was
drafted by the Texas
Rangers, a team that has
pitching woes roughly the
size of the state, may accel-
erate Kirkman's rise to the
majors.
Being a left-hander also
helps. It's the reason why
former Major Leaguer
Jesse Orosco was able to
pitch until he was nearly 50,
even though in his final
years he was reduced to
facing a single batter in
each appearance.
With righthanded hitters
still the rule rather than the
exception, there's always a
place in the game for a
southpaw.
Kirkman said his velocity
is currently between 88-93
mph on his fastball. Take
into account the fact that
he's only 18, he's relatively
thin and still growing, and
perhaps in two to three
years he can have his veloc-
ity in the low-mid 90s on a
consistent basis. That
would make Major League
coaches' mouths water.
Based on the improve-
ments Kirkman has made
the last two years and his
strong work ethic, he
stands a good chance to
work his way up. And what
a treat that would be for his
family, friends and for the
community as a whole.

District assignments have
been set for the 2005-2006
school season, and there
will be some changes for
Fort White High. In base-
ball, the Indians move from
District 4-3A to District 5-3A
in Region 2. Williston High,
Chiefland High, Dixie
County High, P.K. Yonge
School and Newberry High
will all compete with Fort
White for the district title.
The assignments are also
the same in girls and boys
basketball and girls
volleyball.
In girls soccer, Fort
White will be a 3-3A school
and will compete against
Newberry, P.K. Yonge and
Williston.
The Lady Indians will have
only two district rivals in soft-
ball: Chiefland and Dixie
County in District 5-3A.
In boys soccer, the
Indians will vie for a title
against Newberry and PK.
Yonge in District 3-3A.
Gone from the district
are perennial powers Santa
Fe High and Keystone
Heights High, which will
make the playing field more
level for all the teams
involved.
That should result in a
more exciting and competi-
tive sports season for all
Fort White teams.
And the district tourna-
ments can be more com-
pelling as well, with neither
the Raiders nor Keystone
around to snap up two auto-
matic berths in the state
playoffs.

Heath drafted by Angels in 23rd round


By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter. corn

Former Lake City Community
College pitcher Duente Heath was
drafted by the Los Angeles Angels at
Anaheim in the 23rd round of the 2005
Major League Baseball Draft on
Wednesday.
Heath was one of a school-record
nine Lake City Community College
players who were selected.
"We're very excited by it,"


Timberwolves coach Tom Clark said.
"Six of them were pitchers. Five were
guys who were not
drafted out of high A
school."
Heath was a two-
year starter for the
Timberwolves who
posted a 4-5 record
with 82 strikeouts in
95 innings and an Heath
ERA of 3.80 this sea-
son. In 2004, Heath went 4-3 with a


3.93 ERA and 57 strikeouts.
"I just want to see what they have to
offer," Heath said by phone.
The right-handed pitcher signed to
play for the University of Tennessee
last month.
"I'm very comfortable going to
Tennessee," Heath said if it doesn't
work out with the Angels.
Heath's agent David Taylor said the
Angels haven't contacted Heath yet,
but Heath would be willing to meet
with Los Angeles officials and work

The Lake City Wolves have
the money, and now they have
the opportunity to compete in
the Youth Basketball of
America boys 14-and-under
state championships in
Orlando this weekend.
"I want to thank Mike
Farrell with Farrell and
Associates, Wayne Jernigan
with Outreach for Youth and
Mario Coppock and Leon
Kelly," Wolves coach Curtis
Burgess said. "Without those
guys, it would've been hard.
They came out and supported
us, and without those guys,
this trip wouldn't be possible."
The players were ecstatic to
get the opportunity to com-
pete in the tournament.
"I've been real excited,"
guard KK Staples said. "Be-
cause we didn't think we were
going to go, because we didn't
raise a lot of money. But our
coaches made it good for us
because they want to see our
coumunAty in this tournament."
The event begins on Friday
at various sites in Orlando.
The Wolves are in Pool F
with Broward One and the
Space Coast All-Stars, and
their first game is against
Broward One at Dover Shores
Community Center at 9:15
p.m. 'They're from Fort Lau-
derdale, they're real real ath-
letic," Burgess said. 'They
have decent size. It's going to
be real tough."
Lake City's second game is
Saturday against Space Coast
at Boone High School at 1
p.m. The All-Stars are a more
methodical club than Brow-
ard One.
'They like the pick-and-roll


Lake City Wolves player Marcus
on Wednesday.

and have pretty good shoot-
ers," Burgess said. 'They'll
try to make you fall asleep."
The winner of the pool
advances to the single-elimi-
nation round Sunday, where
each team will be re-seeded.
Each of the group winners
will automatically qualify for
the national tournament in
Orlando later this year.
"It's scary because there
are going to be a lot of good

"I know we're able, you've just

The top-seeded team is the
Showtime Ballers out of
Orlando, who are sponsored
by Dallas Mavericks player
Marquise Daniels. They will
compete in Pool A against the
Demon Deacons and FDD.
'They have the whole pack-

Taylor said that the Angels have two

By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com

The Babe Ruth Baseball
Rookie Qualifier tournament
starts today at Lake City's
Southside Sports Complex.
Play in the double elimination
competition begins with four
games at 10 a.m.
The field for 2005 had 38


teams, including two Okee-
heelee and Fort Caroline
squads and Argyle that won
brackets last year.
Normandy was also a
bracket winner last year,
while Julington Creek A and
Tanglewood were selected to
the state field as wild-card
entries. Rookie players range
from fresh-faced 7-year-olds to


grizzled 8-year-old veterans.
'Lake City National All-Stars
fall in the first category. Alan
Dean is manager of Lake City
National.
"We are the young guys,"
Dean said. "None of the play-
ers have tournament experi-
ence and none of the coaches
have all-star experience. This
is the first tournament for all


of us. We are teaching them to
be tough and hang in there.
"Considering everything, I
am real proud of how good
they have done."
Tournament play continues
through the weekend, with the
championship games in all
brackets scheduled for Sunday.
The National All-Stars play
Ponte Vedra at 10 a.m. in


Bracket C. Fort White plays
the Palm Beach Gardens Blue
team at 1 p.m., and the
Americans play Jacksonville
Beach A at 4 p.m.

AUTO RACING

Race week

NEXTEL CUP
Pocono 500
Site: Long Pond, Pa.
Schedule: Saturday, qualifying (FX,
5 p.m.); Sunday, race (FOX, 1 p.m.).
Track: Pocono International Raceway
(triangular oval, 2.5 miles, 14 degrees
banking in turn 1, 8 degrees in turn 2, 6
degrees in turn 3).
Race distance: 500 miles, 200 laps.
Last race: Greg Biffle's series-leading
fourth win of the season at Dover
International Raceway closed him within
46 points of pacesetter Jimmie Johnson. In
a race slowed seven times for 33 of its 400
laps, Biffle won in part because he avoided
traffic problems that resulted in hard
crashes. Among those taken from the field
were four-time Dover winners Jeff Gordon
and Ricky Rudd, and Ken Schrader and
Dave Blaney.
Last year: Jimmie Johnson won the
Pocono 500, despite a NASCAR mistake
that cost him the lead. During a late cau-
tion period, the pit road official opened the
service lane one lap too early. As a result,
Johnson was unable to pit while most of the
cars behind him did. He had to pit later and
it cost him the front spot on the restart.
Johnson recovered, and took the lead for
good on lap 174.


Fast facts: Johnson swept both races at
Pocono Raceway last season.... Biffle's win
at Dover was his fourth straight finish in
the top six, including a victory last month
at Darlington. ... The Dover race marked
the halfway point toward the 26-race cut,
after which only the top 10 drivers or those
within 400 points of the leader will contest
the championship over the final 10 events.
... Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished 22nd at
Dover to drop 418 points behind Johnson
in the standings.
Next race: Michigan 400, June 19,
Brooklyn, Mich.

BUSCH SERIES
Federated Auto Parts 300
Site: Lebanon, Tenn.
Schedule: Saturday, qualifying (Speed
Channel, 5:05 p.m.), race (FX, 7:30 p.m.).
Track: Nashville Superspeedway (tri-
oval, 1.33 miles, 14 degrees banking in
turns).
Race distance: 300 miles, 225 laps.
Last race: Martin Truex Jr. bided his
time until the handling on Kevin Harvick's
car went away, then passed him for the lead
with 70 laps to go and eventually drove
away to an easy victory in the MBNA 200 at
Dover International Speedway.
Last year: Jason Leffler inherited the
lead when Kyle Busch ran out of gas with
four laps to go and won the Federated Auto
Parts 300 under caution for his first career
Busch victory. Thunderstorms delayed the
race for almost three hours.
Fast facts: Reed Sorenson won the
Pepsi 300 at Nashville on March 26. ... Carl
Edwards' lead in the standings has dwin-
dled to 74 points after finishing 35th at
Charlotte and 31st at Dover. ... Truex has
five top-10 finishes in his last six races after
recording just two in the first eight.
Next race: Meijer 300, June 18, Sparta,
Ky.
CRAFTSMAN TRUCKS
Chex 400K
Site: Fort Worth, Texas.
Schedule: Thursday, qualifying, 7 p.m.;
Friday, race (Speed Channel, 9 p.m.).
Track: Texas Motor Speedway (quad-
oval, 1.5 miles, 24 degrees banking in
turns).
Race distance: 250.5 miles, 167 laps.
Last race: Kyle Busch got a huge break
and won for the second week in a row after
an error on pit road took dominant Ron
Hornaday out of contention at Dover
International Speedway. Hornaday led all
but 13 of the first 112 laps and 134 of 200
overall. But he was forced to pit a second
time after a caution because of a missing
lugnut with 50 laps to go in the MBNA 200.
Last year: Dennis Setzer set a Texas
Motor Speedway record by winning the
O'Reilly 400K by 11.817 seconds over Ted
Musgrave. Musgrave led for 101 laps, but
couldn't maintain it after something came
loose on the right front of his Dodge.
Fast facts: Busch became the first truck
driver to win consecutive races since Kasey
Kahne ended 2004 with victories in
Darlington and Homestead. ... Brendan
Gaughan is expected to compete this week-
end. He swept both Texas truck races in
2002 and 2003 before moving to the Nextel
Cup series. ... This will be the 15th race at
Texas, most of any track on the circuit.
Nine of the winners have started fifth or
better, including three from the pole.

FWC honors memory of dead students


From staff reports

Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) law enforcement offi-
cers recently presented a
shadowbox in memory of two
students who died during a
canoeing and camping trip off
the coast of Dixie County.
During a search and rescue
operation in late February,
FWC officers assisted in res-
cuing eight survivors and
recovered the bodies of the
two teens from Georgia.
The two young men, Sean
Christopher Wilkinson and
Clarence "Clay" Rogers
McKernie, were part of a
group on spring break from
the Darlington School in
Rome, Ga., camping off the
town of Suwannee.
While paddling to an island
on camp, the group encoun-
tered difficulties and rough
seas which pulled them out to
the Gulf from sheltered
waters.
The group leader was able
to call for help and the U.S.
Coast Guard and the FWC
began searching for the
group, according to Capt.
John Burton, area supervisor
at the Crystal River Field
Office.
"We successfully rescued
eight of the 10 people who


were part of the group from
the Darlington School, but
our officers were deeply
affected by the loss of the two
boys," Burton said.
Officer Laird Canfield had
the idea to give the retired
flags back in memory of the
students.
'They wanted to show the
school's students, families
and staff exactly how we felt,"
Burton said. '
The officers and staff of the
FWC Crystal River Office
designed a shadowbox con-
taining a U.S. and Florida flag
flown on two of the vessels
used by the FWC during the
search.
"The flags were tattered
from miserable conditions
endured during the search
and rescue," Burton said.
'The officers involved in the
search signed the Florida flag
and paid for the box with their
own donations."
On behalf of the families,
friends and the school, the
Headmaster of Darlington
School, C. David Rhodes III,
wrote a thank you letter to the
officers involved in the
search.
Burton contacted Rhodes
and asked if the box could be
presented to the school in
memory of the students.
Rhodes invited FWC to the


school's honors day program
on May 13.
"We thought this was an
appropriate time to present
this shadowbox to the
school," Burton said.
The honors day program
was a celebration of achieve-
ment for the students of
Darlington School and numer-
ous awards were given.
During the presentation, a
letter signed by Col. Julie
Jones, Director of the Division
of Law Enforcement, was
read.
The letter asked that the
school display the shadowbox
in memory of both Shawn and
Clay.
The brass plaque on the
shadowbox read:
"These retired, weathered
flags were flown on the boats
of 'the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission during the weekend
of Feb. 26, 2005, as we
searched for Sean Christ-
opher Wilkinson and Clar-
ence "Clay" Rogers McKemie.
Although their young lives
were taken from you, may
they always be remembered.
Our thoughts and prayers are
with you, your family and
friends." Officers and Staff,
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission,
Crystal River.

Fishing for a cause at Wolfson


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
In Florida, fishing tourna-
ments are as common place
as eating grits for breakfast.
One of the more popular
fishing tournaments in this
area is the Wolfson Children's
Hospital Bass Tournament.
For the past 16 years, the
Wolfson Fishing tournament
has been held on the St. Johns
River drawing an average of
more than 400 boats each
year. This year, the tourna-
ment is offering $75,000 in
cash and prizes.
What began in 1990 as a
fundraising idea has evolved
into one of the largest benefit
tournaments in the country.
With such a huge draw of
anglers competing for the
$10,000 first-place prize, the
Wolfson Tournament is


known as the largest, one-day
bass fishing tournament east
of the Mississippi River.
While the tournament is
fun for the anglers and boat
lovers from across the state, it
is also held for a good cause
- sick and injured children.
At the last count, before
this year's event which was
held May 21, the annual tour-
nament had raised more than
$800,000. The money has
been used to care for critically
ill and injured children in the
North Florida region.
'"This yearly event brings
fishermen, volunteers and
sponsors from the region
together in a unified effort for
our patients and their fami-
lies," Wolfson Children's Hos-
pital Chief Medical Officer
Michael Haight said in a pre-
tournament statement.
This year's tournament win-


ners caught more than 27
pounds of fish from a lower
creek in the river near the
Jacksonville area.
While it takes great tenaci-
ty, cunning, skill and a little
luck to win a tournament and
best some 800 other anglers,
the real winners in this tour-
nament is the children from
this area who will benefit from
tournament proceeds.
Anglers who participated in
this year's event are to be
saluted for a job well and done.
Anglers who didn't partici-
pate can look forward to par-
ticipating in the 17th Annual
Wolfson Children's Hospital
Bass Tournament in 2006.
Hopefully the tournament
field will set the record with
600 boats participating, which
has probably been the only
goal tournament organizers
haven't been able to achieve.


Trenton Bass Club starts new season


From staff reports

The Trenton Bass Club
begins a new year of tourna-
ments Saturday at Suwannee
Shores Marina in Suwannee.

York Mets.
Last year, the Tampa Bay
Devil Rays chose him in the
25th round.
Heath is a 6-foot-4, 205-
pound pitcher with a fastball
that has been clocked as high

Brian Schlitter (Angels, 33rd

man (5th round) and verbal
commitment Derek Himpsl

Clark said all of the drafted
players on his team should
return, with the exception of
Kirkman.
"I know what he told me was
-if he wentin the 3rd-5th round,
he'd probably go out," Clark

but hell probably go pro."

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER

The Town of Fort White Has Levels of Total Trihalomethanes and Total
Haloacetic Acids Above Drinking Water Standards

Our water system violated a drinking water standard. THIS IS NOT AN EMERGENCY, but as our customers,
you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.

We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. The latest testing results show that our
system exceeds the standards or maximum contaminant levels(MLC) for disinfection byproducts, which
includes both Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM) and Total Haloacetic Acids (HAA5). The standards for TTHM
and HAA5 are 80 and 60 microgram per liter (ug/L) respectively. The following table shows the current and
past results.

August 2004 December 2004 March 2005
TTHM (ug/L) 390.9 140.8 128.3
HAA5 (ug/L) 348.94 118.44 185.28

What should you do?

You .do not need to use an alternative (e.g., bottled) water supply. However, if you have specific health concerns,
consult your doctor.

What does this mean?

This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately. However, please note
the following:

o Some people who drink water containing haloacetic acids in excess of the MCL over many years may have
an increased risk of getting cancer.
o Some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may
experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous systems, and may have increased risk of
getting cancer.

What happened? What is being done?

We had the charcoal filters changed in March, 2005 this helped, but has not totally resolved the problem. We
have summoned Florida Rural Water Asso. to look at the situation for us. We are pulling data, information and
samples for them this month. We anticipate having this problem resolved as soon as possible. For more
information, please contact Mr. Edmund Hudson at 386-497-3345, or P.O. Box 129, Fort White, FL 32038.
