FIRE PROTECTION IN COLUMBIA COUNTY


Local couple


keeps root beer


tradition alive


Vintage truck keeps
quenching thirsts
at county fairs.
By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter. corn
A local couple has traveled
the United States for nearly 50
years, selling root beer out of
the back of a truck that has
been used since 1930.
Grant and Gail Simons, both
of Lake City, were at the
Columbia County Fair last
week, continuing the business
they have run for almost fifty
years now.
"My wife started selling it in
1950, and I started in 1957,"
Grant Simons said. "Her par-
ents bought the truck for the
original owners in 1950, which
they had used since the 1930s.


JENNIFER CHASTEEN/Lake City Reporter
The county's new fire trucks are in various stages of being equipped and all will be in operation by the end of the year.




A burning debate


How can the county
improve fire protection
for outlying areas?
By LINDA YOUNG
lyoung@lakecityreporter.com
Lake City has provided countywide
full-time fire services for decades.
Although volunteer firefighters in the
county respond to calls when they
can their traditional role has been to
assist full-time city firefighters, said
Ellisville Volunteer Fire Chief Emory
Bailey. .
Lake City Fire Department
Administrative Assistant Debbie Adams
said that the city has two fire stations
and 33 employees. There are 10 fire-
fighters always on duty to respond to all
alarm calls in both the city and
unincorporated areas of Columbia
County.
Outside Lake City limits are seven
fire stations with 100 volunteer firefight-
ers spread among them. Most volun-
. teers have full-time jobs and respond to
alarm calls when they can, said
Columbia County Volunteer Fire
Department Coordinator Ben Scott.
Whether they are available or not, the
city also pages the volunteers on every
alarm call to the unincorporated county,
said Lake City Fire Department Capt.
Tim Westberry.
Bailey said that if he arrives at an
alarm call first, as soon as the city fire-
fighters arrive, he follows their orders.
It turns out cooperation between the
city and county on fire services is a two-
way street
John Robertson, member of the joint
Lake City/Columbia County Fire
Committee and City Councilman, said,
"How many times have, the volunteer
firefighters come to the city's aid when
we had some major disastrous fires
downtown."
The formal cooperation for fire serv-
ices between the city and county began
with an agreement dated Sept. 25, 1979,
which was amended in 1989. Under that
agreement, the portion of costs for fire
services the partners picked up had
stayed constant at 55 percent for the

City, county share roles


But questions remain
about which entity can,
claim the equipment.
By LINDA-YOUNG.
lyoung@lakecityreporter.com '
Although Lake City and Columbia
County have had agreements to oper-
ate a joint fire service since Sept. 25,
1979, they have maintained separate
equipment during that time.
The city has two fire stations, with
full-time paid firefighters. The county
has seven fire stations with volunteer
firefighters.
While the city owns their stations


and equipment, any buildings and
equipment acquired during the terms
of the new agreement which began
Oct. 1 for fire services will be titled
to Columbia County.
The main city station is at 151 N.
First St. and the second station is on
Branford Highway at the Columbia
County Fairgrounds.
Both of those stations are manned
24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Three shifts of 10 firefighters work
24 hours on duty and 48 hours off,
said Lake City Fire Department
Administrative Assistant Debbie
Adams.

Fort White to restore train depot


Town seeks state
funds from historic
preservation board.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
FORT WHITE A new
tourist attraction is coming to
town.


After years of being a feed
storage shed, the old Fort
White Train Depot will be one
of the town's newest tourist
attractions, welcome cen-
ter/multi-purpose building -
courtesy of a state grant.
Last week, Fort White
mayor Truett George made a
presentation before a group of
representatives from the


Florida Department of State,
Bureau of Historic
Preservation, and secured
funding for the renovation
project.
"It feels great," George said
of securing the funding. "I was
very optimistic about it any-
way. It's a very good project.
It's the kind of thing they look
forward to (funding) with lots


of community involvement."
He said the project was
ranked 17th out of the 102
project applications that were
submitted from around the
state.
"All of my town council and
a couple of the members of my
community came up and
help'-d us and it was very

The truck can be turned into
an instant fair booth by open-
ing the back, which contains
refrigerated barrels on the
back. The barrels can dispense
the syrup and carbonated
water separately, but the
couple blends it together to
perfection.
"There are some similar
units, but as far as we know,
this setup is the only one still in
operation," Grant Simons said.
Simons said that his wife's
parents used the traveling root
beer truck as a source of
income.
"When we began using it; it
was more of a side-job," Grant
Simons said. "I retired in 1992,

School board plans

early meeting


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter. corn
The Columbia School
District has scheduled an
informal board of education
meeting for next week to
discuss several topics perti-
nent to the school district's
immediate future.
The school board has
scheduled the meeting for
7 a.m. Tuesday at the school
board administrative
building, Room 207, 372
W. Duval St.
A 7 a.m. informal meeting
is an unusual time for the
school board meeting; as
most of its regularly sched-
uled meetings normally take
place at 7 p.m.
Sam Markham, Columbia
School District
Superintendent of Schools,
said several weeks ago he
and school board members
attended Master School
Board training courses,
where one of the guest speak-
ers told the audience some
school boards have decided
to go into the community and
have informal meetings.
At the informal meetings,
held in various places in the
community including public
restaurants and other
business, school boards
could have more interaction
with the public, but get
the same information as at
regular school board
meetings.
Markham said he believes
Columbia School Board
Chairman Steve Nelson liked
the idea and suggested the
concept in Columbia County.
'"The purpose of the meet-
ing is to not have any action
items," Markham said. "The
board doesn't make any
decisions and I don't make
any recommendations."
The school board held a
7 a.m. meeting earlier in the
year, where board members
discussed future construction
concerns and other issues
within the school district.
Markham said he believes
as-a result-. of the first


meeting, this meeting was
scheduled.
During Tuesday's meeting,
school district officials are
scheduled to review a
presentation on technology
and get an overview of the
district's financial
status/budget. In addition,
there will be an informal
discussion among board
members and school district
administrators about other
educational concerns.
Markham said Roger Noll
and Jeanie Hollis will be
talking about where the
district is headed in the
future with technology.
'Things are constantly
changing in all areas of
educational programs and
certainly technology is
changing and I think the
board wants to know which
direction we're following," he
said. "I think the purpose of
the meeting is to update the
board with the planning and
technology we plan to move
forward with. It's generally a
discussion about technology
and growth. Because it's not a
formal board meeting, any
board member can ask us
about any phase of the
education process."
Markham said the concept
behind the master board
meetings is to provide an
opportunity for people in the
community to come out and
ask questions or have
discussions with the board
about construction or
other goals for the school
system.
"A concern that I have is in
no way that we are having an
early board meeting to try
pass any business items
without giving the public an
opportunity to respond or
know what we are doing," he
said. "The perception might
be we were trying to do busi-
ness early in the morning
before people could attend
and know what we were
doing that's not the
intention at all."

Many beautiful cars at


the Fall Festival Car show


By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.com
The Suwannee River
Region Chapter of the
Antique Automobile Club of
America presented its fourth
annual Fall Festival Car show
in downtown Lake City
Saturday.
The event, showcased
many older cars from
Columbia County and sur-
rounding, areas, including
High Springs, Jacksonville
and Valdosta.
'This is something that we
do so folks can get together
for the enjoyment and fellow-
ship," said Ralph Towner of
the Suwannee River Region
Chapter of the AACA. "This
event lets people get together
and show off their cars, and
talk to other people with the
same interests."
Towner said the antique
cars normally draws an older
crowd.
"We've had a few younger
people out here, but this type


of event normally draws out
the older people who remem-
ber these types of cars,"
Towner said.
There were 39 cars in the
show, including a 1967 Ford
Mustang, 1956 Ford
Thunderbird, 1969 Chevrolet
Camaro, and a 1934 Ford
Model-A.
The car that won the Best
of Show award was a blue and
white 1958 Ford Fairlane,
owned by Donald Williams of
Fanning Springs.
Larry Copeland, whose yel-
low 1967 Plymouth Barracuda
placed in the top 20, said that
he has enjoyed working on
cars since he was young.
"I've always been into cars,"
Copeland said. "When I was a
kid, we usually had to fix
them or we didn't drive them.
But I've always had a passion
for cars."
Copeland said he pur-
chased the car about five
years ago, and has put four
years of work into it.
"It isn't finished yet, but it is

fun to go and compete in com-

said. "It is always interesting


to see the other cars that are
out here and talk to their
owners."


Fort White Town Council to meet Monday


By LINDA YOUNG
lyoung@lakecityreporter.comrn
New business on the
agenda for the next Fort
White Town Council meeting
will have the council looking
both forward and backward.
. The Town Council will
review a report on a state
grant to restore historic prop-
erty, as well as reading an
amended ordinance to annex
land.
The Fort White Town
Council will meet at 7:30 p.m.
Monday in Town Hall.
The look backward is at a
historic train depot in need of
restoration to serve future
needs.

In Loving Memory of
Brandon Matthew Pitts
"Mr. Nute"








12-10-90 ~ 11-13-03
It's hard to believe it's been 2 years,
but we're all still shedding tears
every time we here your name. We
know things will never be the
same. We miss you more every
day. More than words can ever say.
Sometimes we wonder who you'd
be today.
We love & miss you.
Daddy, Mama,
Family & Friends


At the meeting, council will
hear a report on progress on
obtaining a state grant to help
with restoration of the historic
train depot in Fort White, on
U.S. 27 just west of the
intersection with S.R. 47.
Last week, Mayor Truett
George went to Tallahassee
and made a presentation
before a group of representa-
tives from the Florida
Department of State, Bureau
of Historic Preservation.
With him were the town
council and Harvey Campbell,
executive director of
Columbia County Tourism
Development Council.


Campbell wrote the grant
proposal for $275,000, but the
amount recommended by the
state was $267,500. He said
that amount, combined with
$50,000 from Ft. White would
totally fund restoration of the
train depot to a "functional
building."
Plans call for using the
building as a Chamber of
Commerce office and office
for the Ichetucknee and
O'Leno trailhead, Campbell
said.
"It's not a done deal, it still
has to go through the legisla-
tive process. But it's probably
99 percent that it would be


funded," Campbell said.
The look forward is at the
eventual opening of the Fort
White's first major grocery
store.
Council will have the first
reading of an amended ordi-
nance to annex land owned by
the.Deese family into the town
limits.
Annexation of the land is
one of the first steps before
entrepreneur Walter Parnell
can build a full-service
grocery store in Fort White.
The need for a grocery in
Fort White has grown with
the population increase from
268 in 1990 to 2,000 now.

EDITORIAL


Registry


gives you


knowledge

today's Lake City Reporter
contains a special
supplement produced for the
Columbia County Sheriff's
Office that gives the
department's latest photo, address and
conviction information on all known
sexual offenders and predators in
Columbia County. It is information every
mother, father, grandparent and child
should have.
The demand for information on the
whereabouts of convicted sex offenders
and predators has been building for more
than a decade. It was in 1994 that
7-year-old Megan Kanka, of Hamilton
Township,
NJ., was Public Service
lured into a
neighbor's Sheriff's Office
brutally raped makes offender
and information
murderedby available to
a convicted
sex offender, the public.
That
tragedy attracted national attention. It led
to the passage of federal legislation in
1996 known as Megan's Law, requiring
states to release information about
convicted sex offenders, but not requiring
local law enforcement to notify the
community of an offender's presence in
their neighborhood.
Interest grew after the Feb. 1, 2004,
kidnapping, rape and murder of an
11-year-old Sarasota girl, Carlie Brucia.
Carlie's Law was introduced and passed
to strengthen the parole system by
increasing penalties for repeat offenders.
Then in May, Gov. Jeb Bush signed
the Jessica Lunsford Act strengthening
Florida's sexual offender and predator
registration laws. Jessica, a 9-year-old
Honmosassa girl. was kidnapped by a
convicted sex offender living nearby who
confessed to her murder. Her body was
found on March 19, almost one month
after her Feb. 23 abduction.
It would be a mistake to lump all
convicted sex offenders.into the same
basket as the sick scum who killed
Megan, Carlie and Jessica. Under the law,
a 17-year-old who is caught having sex
with his 15-year-old girlfriend can be
charged, convicted and labeled a sex
offender.
While wrong and definitely a crime,
we don't believe that is what the general
public thinks of as a sex offense in this

COMMENTARY


UF


S


Pikes started here


The University of
Florida fraternity,
Pi Kappa Alpha,
got started in
Lake City when
UF was here. Kyle Keen (CHS
1994; FSU 2000) reports his
fraternity's Web site says that
11 young college men
gathered on the second floor
of the Blue Goose Inn in Lake
City on Nov. 17, 1904 -
almost exactly 101 years ago
- and founded the Alpha Eta
Chapter of their fraternity.
When UF moved from here to
Gainesville in 1906, the
fraternity moved with it. One
of those 11 youngsters was
Walter M. Hackney, destined
to become one of our town's
leading citizens.

banquet was held in the

pioneer Dick Stratton had also
been speakers ... My column

eight ... Jess Johnson (CHS

my all-timrne favorite CHS
grads, is now the assistant to
the University of Florida Vice

system is grateful to Daniel

VIEWS


Offender registry
unfair to some
To the Editor:
Concerning the special
supplement in this today's
paper. It should be pointed out
that although defined as guilty
of the charge by law, does not
mean in reality that a crime
actually exists.
All too often lately, public
officials have become involved
in witch hunts that take no
consideration for the convicted
person's recent lifestyle or the
fact that they have not been in
any trouble for many years.
Some crimes a decade or older
have been resurrected to
ensnare the offender who has
done his penitence with the
state and country and is now
faced with more undue
harassment from police
officials and yes, eventually the
public, all apparently for the
sake of more points at
re-election time.


That does not mean a
concerned citizen should not
maintain lan awareness of who
and what is going on around
them. And it certainly does not
mean that one should go into.
panic at the thought of having a
suspected, offender living
nearby.
Children's safety is
paramount in all aspects,
however caution should be
advised in dealing with
suspected sexual offenders.
Most, and I mean 99 percent of
those accused, who have.
actually committed the crime,
have since turned their lives
around and just want to be left
alone to live out what's left of
their existence.
A good percent did not
sexual offend in the first place.
These people are being
accused because of marital
strife, divorce, interference
from a third party, or just plain
viciousness. And as they still
fall into that category, having


been convicted, as that of
offender, they are being
harassed and maligned with
the rest
Those names and faces
listed in the supplement are
another vicious attack on those
who want nothing out of life
but to put the long distance
past behind them and live their
lives as decent citizens without
being singled out every time
they step outdoors.
Nothing will be gained by
accepting the information in
the supplement and running
with it. Only bad can come of
it, and as far as I can see,
unless someone cares to. carry
the entire list with them
everywhere, so they can
remain frightened at everyone
who even looks close to
someone on the list, there is no
use to having printed this list
except for personal gain at
election time.

COMMENTARY



Let us not


forget the


ones who


served

The only time I can remember my
father-in-law getting mad with me
was during a discussion about
World War II. Deborah and I were
visiting her parents for the
weekend. Somehow during an extended
Sunday lunch
the conversa-
tion got around
to the after-
math of World r .
War II and
what Germany. ,..
had become in '
the years since.
Dad Deckard Michael Leonard
was expressing Phone: (386) 754-0417
some views mleonard@lJakecityreporter.com
that I found
surprising.
Even though he served in the Army during
World War II as a field artillery instructor at.
Fort Sill, Okla., I expected him to not have
lingering ill-will toward Germany. He went to
Japan with the occupation forces and never.
visited the European war zone.
Being young and lacking wisdom, I pressed
the point that in the interest of both countries
we should forget it all just let bygones be
bygones.
Red color touched his cheeks.
'"They killed my brother," he finally
exclaimed.
I had forgotten the story of his much
younger brother, Buddy, being shot down over
France.
Dad Deckard hadn't forgotten.
I was embarrassed for being so foolish. I
was sorry for causing him pain.
It was my privilege to spend time last week,
with Lake.City. veterans during the Veteran's.
Day ceremony at Olustee Park, a visit to the
VA Hospital and events at American Legion
Post 57. Men from their middle-age to
advanced years gathered to pay tribute to their
fallen comrades and honor their country.
How many of those veterans, I wonder, feel
the kind of pain my father-in-law expressed that.
Sunday afternoon years ago?
Do they think back to the days of World War
II, Korea, Vietnam or the Gulf War and
remember a brother, father, maybe a cousin or
friend, who lost his life? Do they look down at
their shortened legs and remember the land
mine that blew them off?
Are the nightmares still there for the more
recent soldiers serving in Afghanistan or Iraq?
Can they yet see the faces of adults and
children they passed on the street, trying to
pick out which ones might become suicide
bombers?
We who enjoy such abundance owe so much
more to these American veterans. They have
kept our nation strong and free, and when
they've returned home from war they've help
build the strongest, most potent economy the
world has ever seen.
Duffy Soto is a Lake Citian who believes we
can't thank our veterans enough. He has
illustrated and written a tribute dedicated
especially to World War II veterans, since their
numbers are diminishing so rapidly. Soto
presented a framed copy of the poster to the
U.S. Army Field Band and Soldier's Chorus
when they were in Lake City Nov. 1. On Friday
he.gave an enlarged poster to the local
SAmerican Legion post.
The poster features a photo of a World War
II soldier at the top, Soto's written tribute in the
center and a flag-draped casket at the bottom.
William L. "Bill" Soto, Duffy's father, is the
soldier at the top, as well as the. occupant of the
casket at the bottom. The words in between
these two images, inspired by the father but
given to all veterans, are poignant.
Soto wrote, in part:
"Singularly, he was a very tiny dot on a great
big wall, hardly noticeable to the masses. But
when he joined with millions of his brothers,
together they gave everything they had to
protect the great values our forefathers
envisioned for all of us 160 years earlier ... Life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
And in conclusion:
A simple American soldier. A veteran. Just
one of millions. "Thank you," Mr. Veteran, "for
leaving me the greatest gift of all." You will not
be forgotten.
Paul Deckard, like Bill Soto, has now passed
from this Earth. Thousands of other World War


II vets and those from other conflicts join them
each year. It is our duty and privilege to pay
them homage.
Lest we forget.

FORT WHITE: Grant likely


ROLES: Shared resources
Continued From Page 1A


'This whole department
consists of 33 people," Adams
said. "Last year we had 2,594
alarm runs."
Of those, 951 were in the
city and 1,643 were in unin-
corporated areas of the coun-
ty. Along with structure fires,
vehicle fires and grass fires,
I there were calls that did not
involve fire or were false
alarms, Adams said.
The county has seven fire
stations and owns all the
equipment at six of them:
No. 41, Deep Creek, U.S. 441
eight miles north of I-10;
No. 42, Suwannee Valley, U.S.
41 2.5 miles north of 1-10;
No. 43, West Columbia, U.S.
90, one half mile west of 1-75
to CR 252, and three miles
south; No. 44, Columbia City,
SR 47 four miles south of 1-75
corner of Wingate and
Edenfield; No. 45, Ellisville,
U.S. 41/441, a half mile north
of 1-75 and No. 47, Lulu, SR
100 eight miles southeast of
U.S. 90.
The equipment at station
No. 46 South Columbia,
200 Dortch St., Fort White,
one half mile west of SR 47 -
is owned by South Columbia
Volunteer Firefighters.
The County has 100 volun-
teers. Most of them work
somewhere full-time and they
respond to alarm calls when
they are able to, Scott said.
Although many volunteers
don't have the same training
the paid firefighters have,
many officials feel that has
nothing to do with their abili-
ty to do respond to alarm
calls.
Scott said that 30 to 35 vol-
unteer firefighters currently
qualify to work inside a burn-
ing structure called a hot
zone and he expects about
50 to 75 percent of the volun-
teers to qualify early in 2006.
Along with Lake City Fire
Chief Al Wilson, the county is
coming up with a designation
on badges. Those who can
enter hot zones will have a
red badge as opposed to a
white one.
However, Scott said there
are many things that a volun-
teer can do on a fire, includ-
ing take care of hoses. In
addition, most volunteer fire-
fighters are trained as first
responders, which means
they can respond to things
other than fire calls, including
heart attacks and wreck


trucks' that were between
16- and 20-years old. The new
trucks are in various stages of
being equipped and all will be
in operation by the end of the
year, Scott said.
They also have 13 brush
trucks (some as old as 1965,
.others as new as 2004 and
2005), five tankers and two
SUVs.
The city has five pumper
trucks, .including a 65-foot
aerial pumper truck, tanker
truck, brush fire truck, Haz
Mat truck and trailer, two
pick-up trucks and a jeep.
The county has not signed
the new agreement that took
effect Oct. 1.
Although equipment and
buildings acquired while the
agreement is in effect will be
titled to the county, the agree-
ment does not say that
applies retroactively to prior
years.
Fort White and Lake City
have fire hydrants, with some
hydrants from the city
extending into the county.
With a lack of hydrants in
most of the county, and' a
problem with brush fires that
can spread and threaten
structures, the county needs
more tanker and trucks
equipped to fight a brush fire.
Each station has at least
one brush truck, a pumper
and some tankers, Scott said.
Still, equipment was on
Williams' wish list and he had
questions about equipment at
the Nov. 1 fire committee
meeting. Specifically, about
what the Oct. 1 agreement -
which the county hasn't
signed yet covers and
doesn't cover.
Under the agreement, "title
to any land, buildings, vehi-
cles or other fixed assets
acquired during the term (s)
of this Agreement" will be
titled to Columbia County.
But Williams asked about
division of existing equip-
ment at the meeting.
Williams stated a concern
about property disposition
being written in favor of the
City, except.for purchases
made in the 2005-06 fiscal
year.
"They want to be reim-
bursed for their contribution
over 16 years. Some of that

much appreciated," George
said.
Harvey Campbell, executive
director of the Columbia
County Tourism Development
Council, who helped to write
the grant application for the
proposed project, said the
grant was written earlier this
summer.
"These hearings should
have happened a couple of
months ago, but Hurricane
Katrina' and the gas prices
pushed them back," he said.
The grant application was
written for $275,000, but the
amount recommended by the
Bureau staff to the review
committee was $267,500.
"They recommended delet-
ing some type of interior wall
work," Campbell said.
Though the funding is less
than the total amount request-
ed, George said it should be
enough to pay for the entire
renovation project
However, he said they will
seek other grant funding to
pay for parking, ADA require-
ments and restroom facilities.
Campbell said he isn't aware
of any special grant require-
ments that are attached to
spending the funds.


"This grant will go to the
town of Fort White, who will
administer the grant,"
Campbell said. "Obviously, we
scored well to get as many
points as we did."
Fort White had the only
Columbia County project
which was picked to be funded
during the legislative session.
Fort White Town Council
members made the presenta-
tion Tuesday in Tallahassee
and they received notification
of the project's ranking
Thursday afternoon.
"We were pleased all of our
legislative members. Either
them, or a representative,
came and spoke on our
behalf," Campbell said.
George said he and
Campbell had worked togeth-
er on grants before and had
been successful and he wasn't
really surprised to secure
funding for this project.
He said the next step in the
process will be 'getting the
money in the town.
"The next step is to wait for
the Legislature to give us the
money, which will not be until
June or July 2006," George
said. "When we get that
money, we will start on it."


ROOT BEER: Fair success
Continued From Page 1A


supplemental income since
then."
While the couple .live in
Lake City and were at the
Columbia County Fair for the
past 10 days, the couple also
travel the United States,
attending events and fairs.
"We're at different locations
at different times during the
year," Grant Simons said. 'We
leave in June and go to loca-
tions in New York, Maryland,
and Pennsylvania."
The couple return at the
beginning of November for
the Columbia County Fair,
and attend local weekend
events during the spring at
places like Stephen Foster
Folk Culture Center State
Park.


The couple purchases its
root beer from Richardson
Root Beer near Rochester,
N.Y.
"They ship it to us wherever
we are," Grant Simons said. "It
comes on pallets and weights
a ton."
Simons said the truck does-
n't need a lot of maintenance,
and although it still runs, it
isn't driven. He also said he is
always buying vintage equip-
ment and spare parts to keep
the root beer equipment
running.
Simons said that the couple
will continue to sell root beer
as long as they can do it, as
long as they enjoy it, and as
long as they're making money
in it.

Olympic dreams


JENNIFER CHASTEENILake City Reporter
Columbia High graduate Jamia Jackson wears the medal she received for placing sixth
as part of the four-man bobsled team in Lake Placid last Saturday. Jackson's goal is to
compete at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver.

ColUnbia High
graduate Jamia Jackson
chases gold in bobsled.
By MARIO SARMENTO-
nm : yrmrnrc..: lakecityreporter.com
Sometimes, when you least expect
it, life can change in an instant.
Columbia High 2000 graduate Jamia
Jackson was- running on the track at
the University of South Florida two
years aco when a friend called out to
her.
"He was trying out for the bobsled
team." Jackson said. After getting
over her initial puzzlement about why
someone would have bobsledding in
Tampa in the middle of the summer,
Jackson followed her friend to see
-hlat it was habr.ut. Before she knew it,
she had passed a five-skill test and
-)rn-tfound-.lhtrse.-inulnersed 4a -the
event.
"-It's a rush," she said. "It's nothing
like what you think it's going to be.
It's like being in a car with no brakes
on a bumpy road."
That road has led Jackson to tailor
her life around the sport. After gradu-
ating from USF with a degree in well-
ness leadership, she has been train-
ing year-round for the bobsled, and
has even conformed her professional
life to meet its demands.
Jackson moved in with her older
sister Ina in her house in Augusta,
Ga.. and her job as a waitress at Red
Lobster gives her the leeway to leave,
for big events, such as the America's
Cup four-nian bobsled in Lake Placid
last Saturday, where Jackson was part
of a team that placed sixth.
For her efforts, she received the
first award of her new career. a


medal.
And soon Jackson will be leaving to
train for the next three weeks for a
meet in Canada.
Jackson's mother Betty remem-
bers her surprise at hearing about
her daughter's life-changing
experience.
"It's not happening," she said. "My
first thought was, 'bobsledding?'
Because I didn't know about it. Being
in Florida, I was like, 'Don't you have
to be on the ice for that?'"
Betty learned more about the sport
when she went out and rented a
videotape of "Cool Runnings," the
movie about the Jamaica bobsled
team.
Now she and her husband Zearah
watch the sport every chance they
get.
"I'm on the lookout for it all the
time because she's involved," Zearah
,--explaisted..I-love all sports.*" .,..- ..
Jamia has performed both tasks in
the bobsled as the brake man and the
driver.
She said she prefers driving
because, "I actually get to see what's
going on. It's a smooth ride and you
get too beat up in the back."
If she's in the back, Jackson said
she has to ride with her head
between her knees the entire time
and move as little as possible so as
not to throw off the driver.
"If you"trcme down off a curve
rough, you flop back down and your
head goes from one side to the
other," Jackson said.
That's how concussions occur, as a
rider's head can slam against the
bobsled side violently, which is what
happened to Jackson last year.

Fort White

IV hoops

hopes to


improve

By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter. com

The Fort White High jun-
ior varsity girls basketball
team has just one returning
player from last year, but the
Lady Indians do have bigger
numbers coming in after last
year's four-win season.
Ashley Jarrell is the lone
returned, With Dominique
Reed, Regina Reed and
Kierra Thomas up from mid-
dle school.
"We've got a little more
experi-

than
we've
had in

past,"
Lady
Indians coach Brenda Hunter
said.
"It's all new to them.
though what we're running,
and we're trying to run coach
(Jade) Waugh's system as
much as we can." ; "'* "
Hunter is also excited by
the physical size of her team.
"I do have some height this
year," she said.
"I've really been hurting
there for the last three years.
I haven't had anybody I could
call a 5 (center) or a 4 (power
forward)."
Shardre Dent, Thomas and
Cieraha Hopkins are the play-
ers Hunter will be relying on
for rebounding.
With 10 players on the
team, Hunter will be able to
rest more players than she
could last year, when she
only had six girls on the
roster.
"As always, I hope on get-
ting them ready for the varsity,
but I hope we win more games
than last year," Hunter said.
Fort White starts the sea-
son at 5:30 p.m. on Monday
against Hamilton County
High. The Lady Indians then
play at Bronson High at
5:30 p.m. on .Tuesday and
face Chiefland High at
6 p.m. on Wednesday.

She also sports several
bruises on her arms and legs
from all the banging. Jackson
proudly displayed a tennis-
ball sized knot on her elbow
that she suffered while riding
at Lake Placid.
Although she competed in
the four-man bobsled at Lake
Placid, Jackson usually com-
petes in the girls' event, which
is a two-man bobsled. She said
she was basically picked up
for the men's event because
they needed a brake man on
short notice. Jackson gets the
bobsled to train with at the
Sled Shed in Lake Placid,
which is where she also gets
in shape for a meet. She said
she usually goes up there
twice before Christmas and
twice after Christmas, and she
must return annually in July
and August to meet the
requirements of a fitness test
to stay in the program.
Jackson explained that driv-
ing a bobsled is a difficult task,
because the pulleys inside the
sled which turn it left and right
are sensitive to the touch.
Those pulleys are. located in
the center of the bobsled,
between the legs of the driver.
"If you're too late you shoot
up to the top,".she said.
Jackson's after-school
activities at Columbia also
helped prepare her for her
new career. Jackson ran track
at CHS and was a weightlifter;
she was also a cheerleader.
"It provided a foundation,"
she said. "It helped me with
the lifting and the technique.
It prepares you for bigger
things and helps manage your
time, which is the biggest
thing in bobsledding."
Jackson said she. lifts
weights 4-5. days a week and
runs four days a week. She
concentrates on power
cleans, snatches and dead
lifts, and she runs short dis-
tances on the track to provide
her with the burst she needs
to push the bobsled as the
brake man.
"You go from a dead stop to


running fast for 20 meters,"
she said, adding that she runs
in intervals from 20-80 meters
as part of her regimen.
Since Jackson has no
bobsled near her home, some
days she will just practice by
pushing a truck when she has
the opportunity.
This year, Jackson plans on
competing on the World Cup
circuit, and if she earns
enough points to qualify for
the top 25, she can join a pro-
gram sponsored by Home
Depot where she could work
20 hours a week and still be
paid as if she had worked 40.
Also, she would have the
sponsorship from companies
that would allow her to cut
down on costs.
Currently, Jackson doesn't
pay for housing, food or ice
time at the training center in
Lake Placid. But spikes alone
cost $200, as does her burn
suit, which is exactly what it
sounds like. It is insulated
and it protects Jackson from
being burned when her body
touches the ice.
She said her friends are
divided as to what to think of
her new vocation.
'They think it's cool, some
think I'm crazy," she said. But.
Betty and Zearah have always
been supportive.
'They're excited for me
and they like it," Jamia said.
Neither parent has watched
Jamia race yet, however. They
are waiting until she starts
competing in the bigger meets
to do that. And although both
know there is an element of
danger in the sport, they
believe their daughter has,the
skills to succeed.
"Oh yeah, I have no doubt
about it," Betty said. "If she
sets her mind to it, she can
accomplish anything."
For Jamia, anything would
be a position on the 2010
Olympic team in Vancouver..
And that would certainly be
a long way from the track in
Tampa where she first
discovered this curious sport.

Columbia County
Resources uses fair
to boost economy.

By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.com
The Columbia
County Fair
closed Saturday
night, but the
effects of the
fair's business on the
county's economy will last
long after the gates close.
The process of acquiring
the components that make up
the fair is an extensive one.
"First we have to contract
with Midway, the fair compa-
ny that comes to Columbia
County, that brings all the
rides and games," said Steve
Briscoe, president of the
Columbia County Resources
Board of Directors. "We also
have to contract with the
independent food vendors
and exhibitors. We also have
to book the entertainment
ourselves."
Briscoe said the amount of
money the fair makes varies
each year.
'We hope to make more,
money from year to year, but
we normally make between
$90,000 and $125,000 each
year," Briscoe said.
The money is distributed
to the various organizations
involved in the fair.
"Everything is worked on a
percentage basis with
Midway," Briscoe said.
"Depending on how well the.
fair does and how, much
money is generated depends
on how much they receive."


organizations involved in the fair.
Columbia County
Resources is self-funded, and
most of its profits come from
events such as the fair and
the DARC Rodeo.
"It takes events of that
nature just to maintain the
facilities," Briscoe said. 'We
have three paid employees,
and of course we contribute
back to the community as
well, with scholarships,
assisting with fundraisers,
and u...itributi,.'-. to other
organizations."
Howev,:r. mirost of the
money is used to maintain


the facilities, including the
maintenance, upkeep, and
improvements for the
fairgrounds and buildings.
"Before the fair began, we
just spent approximately
$25,000 to overhaul the
bathrooms, which was
desperately needed," Briscoe
said.
Briscoe said that he
believes fair attendance will
be up a little this year.
"Right now, all indications
show that we will have an
increase in the numbers of
those in attendance," Briscoe


said. "We were up the first
few days, and then had a
slight decrease on Monday
and Tuesday, but those are
the slower days anyway."
Even with gas prices up,
people from outside
Columbia County are still
driving to see the highlights
of this year's fair.
"We do attract people from
outside the county," Briscoe
said. "Just by looking at the
license plates., and interacting
with some of the people, we
know we pull from outside of
Columbia. We have people


from Jacksonville, south
Georgia, Alachua, Perry and
other surrounding areas."
This is the second year
that the Columbia County
Fair has spanned 10 days,
rather than six days, as in
previous years.
'With our recent growth,
and normally once a county
reaches a certain population,
many fairs will then extend to
10 days to try to give people a
little more time." Briscoe said.
'We are judging now to see if

BUSINESS BRIEFCASE


Sy4


JENNIFER CHASTEEN/Lake City Reporter
Even with gas prices up, people from outside Columbia County are
still driving to see the highlights of this year's fair. This is the
second year that the Columbia County Fair has spanned 10 days,
rather than six days, as in previous years.

FAIR: Another good year?


Continued From Page 1C
the numbers we've seen are
worthy of a 10-day fair or if we
should go back to a six-day
fair."
Briscoe noted the 10-day fair
spreads out the number of
people there in one night and
helps with crowd control.
"It spreads it out," Briscoe
said. 'This year we have had
great nights with 4,000 people
or better, but when you start
getting 5,000 to 6,000 people,
the lines are longer and it's
more crowded. The 10-day fair
is long enough so that you
don't have to wait so long and
you're not always elbow to
elbow with people."
The exhibit booths also
bring revenue to the fair, and
serve as a good way to adver-
tise products and services.
"Each -' distributor rents a
*booth from the fairgrounds,
with a single booth going for
about $165," Briscoe said. "As
a business owner, to have
approximately 26,000 to 30,000
people seeing your booth, that
is a very minimal cost to adver-
tise and promote your prod-
ucts to that many-people."
The number of booths


varies from year to year, but
Briscoe said there are about
162 booths in the exhibit hall
this year.
"For the five years that I've
been apart of the fair, we've
always had a awaiting list to
rent an exhibit booth," Briscoe
said. ,
The Columbia County Fair
belongs to the Florida
Federation of Fairs, where rep-
resentatives come each year to
judge the fair.
"I met with the judges on
Wednesday night, and the
biggest compliment that we
received was from a man from
Jacksonville and was about our
exhibit booths," Briscoe said.
'They were just amazed at the
participation that we had with
local businesses, city groups
and churches in our exhibit
halls. They were just aston-
ished at the amount and quali-
ty of the exhibits. That is kind
of a proud statement coming
from a man from a much larg-
er metropolitan area fair, com-
ing into a county area fair, and
seeing a great number of
exhibits."


First Federal helps
build Legion post
LIVE OAK First
Federal Savings Bank of
Florida contributed to a new
American Legion Post 107
building in Live Oak.
The $2,500 contribution
will assist with the
construction costs of this
3,200-square foot facility
located at 142nd Street (Blue
Lakes Road) in Suwannee
County.
The American Legion Post
107 serves veterans, their
families and children and
citizens of Live Oak. As
members of the nation's
largest wartime veterans
organization, Legionnaires
and members believe in
volunteerism and the
.importance of being a
positive influence for the
next generation of America's
leaders. American Legion
members and their families
place special emphasis on
serving others while taking
care of our own.
The American Legion Post
107 will use the new building
for membership meetings
and other military organiza-
tions, and for general public
use including polling and
general elections as well as
disaster and emergency use.
Mr. Keith Leibfried,
President and CEO of First
Federal stated that, "The
local American Legion Post
107 has helped many local
military families and
veterans with everything
from medical and financial
assistance to scholarship
funds for our local youth.
First Federal is proud to
contribute to the American

By Associated Designs

The country-style Clayton is a
spacious home, to say the least. And
it's built over a basement to boot.
With five bedrooms and four
roomy gathering spaces, it is
well suited to the needs of a large
family.
Shuttered windows and a
wide covered porch with
wooden handrails add to
the attractiveness of the H Be
Clayton's inviting front 13'1
facade. Doors to the three-car
garage open on the left side,
not the front.
Stepping into the two- Bei
story entry, you notice a 11'
parlor to the left and a --
stairway to the right. At the "
top of the stairs is a loft. Facing for-
ward, the loft overlooks the entry,
including a view of the plant shelf
over the door. Facing the rear, it
overlooks the vaulted great room.
Four bedrooms are upstairs,
along with a two-section bathroom,
and a deep attic storage area. Two
of the bedrooms have small gabled
dormers; the third bedroom has a
larger one.. Not to be outdone, the
fourth bedroom boasts the largest
closet.
Back on the main floor, the large
kitchen is open to the great room
and dining room. The kitchen ceil-
ing is flat while the great room, din-
ing room, and nearby four-season

Columbia County Fair
showcases the best
creations in the area.
By SUSAN SLOAN
Special to the Reporter
f you've ever watched "The
Andy Griffith Show," you know
that Aunt Bea and the other
ladies of Mayberry competed
ferociously for the blue ribbons
at the county fair. From the early
1900s, the local county fair was
eagerly awaited as a time to see what
was happening with neighboring farm
families and experience the
excitement of the fair.
The ribbons and awards that
were given to the local
homemakers for their pies, jams,
cakes and handiwork were
cherished for a lifetime and the
envy of all the other women in the
community. Home-canned fruits
and vegetables filled with the
bounty of home gardens and
orchards, as well as samples of the
communities best baked goods,
sewing, needlework and quilting
were submitted for judging, and
the competition was fierce for the
best pie or cake of the fair. The
winners of the different categories
were free to swagger through town
in celebration of their success.
Today, the competition for the
"Best of Overall," "Best of Class,"
and 1st, 2nd and 3rd place ribbons
is just as intense. Displayed in the
Home Arts Building at the
Columbia County Fairgrounds,
entries in four home arts categories
Food Preservation (canning),
Needlework, Quilting, and Creative
Crafts and in four competi-
tion classes Profess.ional.
Adult, Exception ally :-"
Challenged, and Youth
sport the colorful rib-. '
bons that declare their
makers as winners. .
The entries for the
separate category for
baked goods,
however, are long
gone. Entries for all
categories except
baked goods were
accepted at the County
Extension Office the week
before the Fair. The baked ..
goods were delivered the '
night before the G rand
Opening and judged
that night. As part of
the opening cere- .
monies, the county
best delectables
were offered to the
public for critique,
with the two
most-favored
entries receiving ':
People's Choice
Awards.
Corien
Heykoop, the
Family and
Consumer
Science Agent
at the
Columbia
Extension
managed the "e .m s,
competition. ',
In her first
year in this position, Corien was
impressed with the level of skill
and talent that the entrants
exhibited. The judging is done by
volunteer extension service
members from surrounding

The Best of Class quill by Debbie Adams is not only beautiful, but inspirational in its tribune to firefighters


counties who have been trained as

difficult job with all the talent that
we have in Columbia County.
Using the best of our areas fruits

says that an

changed his'

now he cans everything from fruits

Foundation makes things


happen at community college


By Michael Lee
Foundation executive director
People often say to me, "I wouldn't
want your job; I don't like asking
people for money."
As Executive -
City Community ,7-9 .
College Foundation, :
I have been privi- "
leged to engage in a
worthwhile vision
and in the process Lee
have learned what,
I believe, is a different view from the
typical "non-profit" approach.
The old way of thinking for
non-profits was that they existed to
raise funds to help a group of people
and often operated with what is
sometimes referred to as the
survival mentality. Let's raise
enough money to survive and sound
the alarm when we are in trouble. In
fact, "non-profits" do have
shareholders, as do our "profit-mak-
ing" counterparts. Our shareholders
are our students and contributors.


Lake City Community College
Foundation is fortunate to have
many qualified, exceptional
volunteers who don't "serve on the
board," but are "on board" while
taking our organization to a new
level of thinking. They believe that
our cause is worthy and that not
only do we have the responsibility to
meet today's needs and challenges,
but that we must prepare for the
long term.
I suggest that another viewpoint
contrary to old thinking is that Lake
City Community College Foundation
is a "for impact" organization (old
term is non-profit) with a long-term,
grand vision and a cause that offers
opportunities for investors (old term
is donors) to realize a return on
their investment. Our cause is to
impact and change lives by focusing
on relationships with investors,
students, and the community and
nurturing partnerships to realize the
grand vision of having the best
community college possible.
In simple terms we generate
private income to, support Lake City


Community College by providing
student scholarships and enhancing
programs. On a deeper level, the
Foundation supports the College in
preparing students for a lifetime and
to serve the community in the area
of economic development.
How do investors realize a return
on their investments through their
gifts? This is perhaps best illustrated
by the Foundation's Take Stock in
Children program. This program
offers potential first-generation
college students who are in high
school the opportunity to attend
Lake City Community College.
There are currently 242 students
in the program, 160 in high school
and 82 at LCCC. School districts
select the students and assign a
mentor, and the Foundation helps
raise financial support to purchase
Florida Prepaid Foundation scholar-
ships, which are matched dollar for
dollar. Students must agree to stay
drug and crime free, be good
citizens and make passing grades. In
exchange, they are guaranteed at
least a two year scholarship to Lake


City Community College where they
have the opportunity to obtain their
degree and continue their education
further if desired.
Who are our typical investors and
partners? There is no typical one.
The individuals and organizations
that support the Foundation vary
greatly. From the employee who
gives $1 per pay period, to the
individuals, organizations, and
corporations that invest in an endow-
ment all investors are doing what
they can to impact and change lives.
It has been said that there is a
difference between "giving" and
"philanthropy." Giving involves
writing a check to an organization;
philanthropy engages our passion,
stimulates our thinking to make a
real difference, and causes us to
give deep thought to where we place
our hard earned resources.

director, Lake City Community College
Foundation at 386-754-4201,

Associated Press
HOUSTON If you're in

Christmas, here are some
attractions worth seeing.
The Washington Mutual
Thanksgiving Day Parade

Minute Maid Park, with mas-
sive balloons, floats, cos-
tumed marchers, bands and
the arrival of Santa.
On Dec. 1, a holiday tree
will be lit near City Hall in a
celebration that includes
fireworks and music.
A candlelight tour of his-


toric homes in downtown's
Sam Houston Park takes
place Dec. 9-10; look for cen-
turies-old seasonal decora-
tions and costumed carolers.
Shows with holiday themes
include "A Christmas Carol"
at the Alley Theatre, Nov. 22-
Dec. 28; the Houston Ballet's
"The Nutcracker" at Wortham
Theater, Nov. 25-Dec. 26; and
"A Pure Gospel Christmas:
Coming Home," Nov. 25-

The Houston Grand

features the world-famous
soprano Renee Fleming in a
one-night program of holiday
classics, Dec. 6.
Programs at the Houston
Symphony include "Holidays
Around the World," Dec. 10;

The Galleria which
claims to be the fourth-largest
shopping area in the nation -
will light up Nov. 24, when a
flip of a switch turns on a half-
million lights along Post Oak
Boulevard.


SUSAN SLOAN/Special to the Reporter
The needlework of the many talented knitters and crocheters of Columbia County are on display at the
Home Arts building at the Fairgrounds.

BEST: County's best were displayed


Continued From Page ID
Self taught, he learned from
reading canning books and
"a whole lot of mistakes." His
family and friends reap the
benefit from his award-win-
ning hobby as Henry uses
the fruits of his therapy as
Christmas gifts. This year,
he decided to submit his
butters, marmalade and
preserves in the county's
competition.
The unexpected pleasure
of discovering his winning
ribbons when he visited the
fair was a pleasant surprise.
Henry, bolstered by his suc-
cess, is certain that his
cooking skills will draw that
certain special.woman who
is looking for a single man
who can cook!


And while Henry and the
other Food Preservation
and Baked Goods competi-
tors -created treats for the
mouth, many other
residents of Columbia
County are also being rec-
ognized for their many tal-
ents. The quilting, crochet,
knitting and other
needlework art, as well as
the diverse craft items that
are on display at the Home
Arts Building, should not
be missed. When making
your way through the fair-
grounds, enjoy the rides,
the amusements and the
luscious fair food, but don't
forget to make a stop at the
Home Arts Building to
admire the work of our


talented community.
If you are already think-
ing about submitting an
entry for next year's fair,
one of the rules of
competition is that all items
submitted must be made
within 12 months of the fair
by the entrant. All of the cat-
egories, classes and specific
rules and judging standards
are available at the County
Extension Office and
Heykoop suggests that you
contact her prior to next
year's fair to get the most
up to date information.
So get out those knitting
needles or get out the wood
working tools and get busy.
Next year's fair is only 358
days away.
