Swimmer's


Live Oak man
drowned on
NewYear's Eve.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.comrn
BRANFORD Recovery
efforts for a swimmer lost on


New Year's Eve concluded
Monday when his body was
recovered in the area where
the Suwannee and Santa Fe
rivers meet.
Suwannee County Sheriff
Tony Cameron said the body
of Randy David Norris Jr., 19,
of Live Oak, was recovered
Monday afternoon after
authorities had been


searching along the river
since Saturday morning.
Cameron said the drowning
was initially reported around
11:45 a.m. New Year's Eve at
the mouth of the Santa Fe
River where it runs into the
Suwannee River.
"We got a call from the resi-
dence where it occurred,"
Cameron said. "He (Norris)


was there with a group of
friends celebrating New Years
and swam across the river to
talk to some people on the
other side (of the river) and
got in trouble on the way back.
Rescue attempts were made
by some of the bystanders,
who were some of his friends.
They were unsuccessful so'
they called us."


Authorities started an oper-
ation for recovering the body
which involved the Suwannee
County Sheriff's office and
deputies, Taylor County
Sheriff's Office dive team, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
and the Pinellas County
Sheriff's office dive team
members. Cameron said the


Pinellas County Sheriff's
Office dive team members
came because they have sonar
equipment that no other local
agencies have.
Cadaver dogs were also
brought in from Alachua


County.

GIVING BLOOD


'It's like a mosquito bite'


Blood banks look
for donations as
NewYearS offers lull.
By LINDSAY DOWNEY
Idowney@lakecityreporter.com
Robert Shepard has been donating
blood for 22 years because he knows he
might need it someday. The 45-year-old
said one of his co-workers encouraged
him to begin giving in 1984.
"He said, 'If you were in an accident on
the way home, would you refuse blood?'
I said 'No' and he said, Then why would
you refuse to give it?,"' Shepard said.
Blood banks across the country' are
encouraging people to donate in January
for National Blood Donor Month
because there usually is a shortage of
donors at the beginning of the year.
"Right after the holidays is typically
one of our hardest months as far as
: donor recruitment," said J.D. Pettyjohn,
branch manager at the LifeSouth
Community Blood Center in Lake City.
"People are just coming back from vaca-
tions or doing things with their families.
A lot of people are sick with the cold."
And while fewer people can donate,
the need for blood often rises at the new
year.
"Generally around the holidays we
need a lot of blood because accidents
happen with people traveling," Pettyjohn
said, adding that in January doctors also
resume with routine surgeries that were
delayed during the holidays.
Pettyjohn said LifeSouth's blood sup-
ply is "OK ,as of today" because more
than 50 people stopped by its bloodmo-
bile in front of Wal-Mart on New Year's
Eve.
"I think a lot of people were still in the
Christmas spirit and trying to start off
the new year with a bang and doing
something good for the community,"
Pettyjohn said.
However, the blood center still needs
more donations for January and for the.
rest of the year. About one-in-five people
will use blood in their lifetime, but only
4 percent of the population donates,
Pettyjohn said. 'Sometimes people who
haven't given blood before are reluctant
to donate because they are afraid of nee-
dles or worried that it will hurt, he said.

But for Shepard; the process was vir-
tually painless. The Lake City resident,
who donates blood about three or four
times a year, made his first donation of
2006 on Tuesday when he saw the red,

Council to pay


$10KtoK

City will stop
reimbursement for
water, sewer lines.
By LINDA YOUNG
lyounglIakecityreporter.com
The Lake City Council voted
to pay J.L. Dupree
Construction Services, Inc.,
$10,980 to reimburse the firm
for the first 300 feet of both
6-inch water line and 8-inch
sewer line.
It will be one of the last times
the city reimburses anyone. for
the first 300 feet of installation
of new water line.
"We've had a number of dis-
cussions concerning revising
those fees," said council
member John Robertson.
Council recommended the
city attorney draft an ordinance
to increase tap and impact fees
for water and eliminate having
the city pay for the first 300 feet
of water line. Council members
also agreed to do the same for


company
sewer rates as soon as the
council agrees on a wastewater
service area and knows the
new costs for sewer service.
In other business, council
member Mike Lee said since
the county has not signed the
interlocal agreement for fire
services provided by the city,
the council should begin to
consider its options. He sug-
gested considering plans for
the city to provide fire services
on its own, if necessary.
"We've been trying since
August, I think, to get an inter-
local (agreement) and we still
don't have one," Lee said. "If
the county is having consult-
ants and people advise them,
then I think we should be ready
if the need arises to do fire on
our own."
Robertson said the failure of
the county to sign the interlocal
agreement for fire services was
not the only sign the county
might back out of a joint

Committee meets to discuss


airport improvements Tuesday

By LINDA YOUNG "' ". .'
lyoung@lakecityreporter.com t M : .-P I .. ...


Increased security, striping
and a 3,000-foot taxiway-turn-
around all made it onto this
year's municipal airport
improvements project wish
list.
The Lake City Airport
Committee met Tuesday and
chose those projects to apply
for funding from the Federal
Aviation Administration
(FAA). The list is due at the
regional FAA office in
Orlando on Thursday and will
probably be hand-delivered.
The proposals for future
airport improvements was the
last item on the committee's
agenda presented by Tom
Sawyer, airport manager and
assistant city manager.
"We could design the whole
thing and depending on
monies we might or might not
get it," Sawyer said.
He said the airport is "now
basically" fenced in, with a
few gaps in distant regions
that could be enclosed with
barbed wire. Officials could
then finish securing the
facility with a card reader
gate.
"Which (card reader gate)
we will need to do eventually
as security tightens," Sawyer
said. 'The new Congressional
report on general aviation just
came out and those are some
of the recommendations in it."
He said enhanced security

was one of the things they
could spend money on and
another was striping the
runways.
"Anyway, I'm guessing at
$50,000 to do all the runway
striping at the airport,"
Sawyer said.
Perhaps the most critical
need, however, is a new taxi-
way and turnaround at the
east end of the runway. That
would give heavier planes
more space to turn around
and taxi. Planes as heavy as
the tanker planes that will be
based at the new the U.S.
Forest Service Fire Tanker


Base can chew up the run-
way, especially when high
temperatures soften the
asphalt.
The estimated cost of the
project would be about
$1.3 million, according to
Don Ramdass, southeast avia-
tion services manager, Earth
Tech Consulting, Inc., of
Jacksonville.
"I would go with concrete
too, I would not go to
asphalt," Ramdass said.
Ramdass and several
members of the committee
discussed the fact that
concrete surfaces are more


durable and last longer than
asphalt. That, along with
rising petroleum prices, have
made asphalt runways and
taxiways less of a bargain to
build.
In other business, the
committee approved adding a
$20 per hour fee to the
$50 the airport charges
for after-hours service.
Employees are not compen-
sated by the city for coming
in and they sometimes end up
waiting up to five hours after
a pilot expected to land. The
employee receives the fee the
city charges.

Commissioners to hear findings from fire survey


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

Improved fire protection
and related services for resi-
dents living in the rural areas
of Columbia County have
been listed as a top priority for
Columbia County officials in
2006.
Local officials will begin to
tackle the topic during a
6 p.m. commissioners work-
shop Thursday night at the
Columbia County School
Board Complex Auditorium,
372 W. Duval St.
During the meeting, a con-
sultant hired by the county to
find methods to provide better
fire protection for rural areas


will make a presentation about
enhanced fire protection.
Following the workshop,
which is scheduled to last
about an hour, the board of
commissioners will begin its
commission meeting, where
officials are scheduled to
discuss protecting charter
county authority.
Assistant County Manager
Lisa Roberts said the Florida
Association of Counties has
notified charter county admin-
istrators that a major issue has
surfaced as to how best to
defend charter authority
against pre-emptive
legislation.
'This specifically relates to
the use, development and


re-development of land
throughout the county, annex-
ation powers and other home-
rule issues," she said. 'This
issue arose at the last legisla-
tive session. Amendments to
this affect came close to
passage."
Roberts said there is a
proposal to fund a lobbyist to
represent charter counties on
this issue during the 2006
legislative session and the
Florida Association' of
Counties is polling each char-
ter county to determine if
there is a consensus to active-
ly fight legislation and also to
see if the counties would
provide funds for the
employment of a lobbyist.


There are less than
20 charter counties in the
state.
The board received a letter
from the Florida Association
of Counties last month
regarding the issue and is fac-
ing a Jan. 15 deadline regard-
ing giving a response to the
Florida Association of
Counties.
In other business, commis-
sioners are scheduled to dis-
cuss allowing streets to be cal-
culated as part of lots in agri-
culture zoning districts. The
commission will also hear a
presentation regarding the
Lake City Speedway and dis-
Scuss commercial/residential
solid waste collection.

O'Brien woman killed

in wreck Monday night


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

An O'Brien woman was
'killed" in a single-vehicle car
crash Monday night where
authorities say alcohol and
the weather could have been
deadly contributors to the
fatal wreck.
According to Florida
Highway Patrol reports,
Rosalie M. Decker, 60, of
O'Brien, was killed in the
8:25 p.m. wreck Monday
night on U.S. 129 in Columbia
County, about 15 miles south
of Live Oak.
Reports say Decker was
driving a 1994 Chevrolet
south on U.S. 129, when for
unknown reasons, the car left
the roadway onto the west
shoulder.
The front of the car struck
a road sign and the car con-
tinued to travel southwest and
struck a tree with its front end
before coming to final rest on
the west side of the tree,


facing south.
Reports say Decker was
transported to the Lake City
Medical Center by Suwannee
County Emergency Medical
Services, but later had to be
taken to Shands at the
University of Florida, where
she died around 3 a.m.
Tuesday from wreck-related
injuries.
"It's (the wreck) possibly
alcohol-related, however it
will not be determined until
the blood-alcohol specimen is
analyzed by the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement Crime lab," said
Florida Highway Patrol Troop
B Public information officer
Lt. Mike Burroughs. "Also,
weather could have been a
contributing factor in the
crash."
According to the Florida
Highway, Patrol report, the
weather at the time of the
crash was listed as cloudy
with wet roads.

OPINION

EDITORIAL


The search

for quality

jobs should

be job one

Columbia County officials
speak the truth when they
mention that "quality jobs"
should be a goal for this
county this year. There is a
need here that is easy to identify.
The rising cost of living and the
housing market make this a no-brainer
for the county commissioners to tackle.
What they aren't saying is what is
somewhat troubling.
How do we land quality jobs?
Any economic developer in this
country will tell you that one of the best
ways to obtain job growth is to help
existing industry expand. Some
industries already are doing this.
Others will need a push, but the
opportunity still is there.
We need details.
How will the county commission
attack the problem of improving on the
number of quality jobs?
There must be a plan in place to
make this happen. There must be a
strategy implemented. There has to be
substance behind the concept and some
distinct action toward the goal.
We would cheer loudly for additional
"quality" jobs that pay higher wages and
better benefits to working people in
Columbia County. We hope the county
commissioners have a plan on how this
can be attained.
We hope the group can back up what
has been outlined as a primary goal for
accomplishing in 2006.

'"The new trucks purchased
by the county have Columbia
County Fire Department on the
door, the name of Lake City is
conspicuously absent from the
doors of those vehicles. So I
think your suggestion to


proceed is timely and wise,"
Robertson said.
In other business, the pro-
posed outside toilets at City Hall
won't be built in time for this
year's Olustee Festival.
The city awarded the con-
tract to low bidder Little &


Williams, Inc., at $72,000. But
the day they opened the bids,
the company said it made a mis-
take and increased the bid to
$94,000, Cone said.
The' objective was to have the
bathrooms open by Feb. 14, in
time for the Olustee Festival.

Coonce recognized him, make
contact and took him into cus-
tody. However, Heavener
didn't go without incident.
"He was given orders to
show his hands and his hands
were concealed in his waist
area, and he refused to comply
to orders to show his hands
and the Taser was, used,"
Gootee said. "After being
Tasered, he complied and was


restrained and taken to the
Columbia County jail with no
further incident."
Heavener remained in jail
Tuesday on a $100,000 bond.
"The business of drug use
and abuse is a risky business,"
Gootee said. "Mr. Heavener
felt the need to rob a Columbia
County business to support
his bad habits and now he's in
jail. That's the message I have
- drug peddlers and users
will go to jail when we catch
them. It's just a matter of
time."

DONATION: Blood needed

white and blue bloodmobile
parked in front of Wal-Mart.
"It's just a slight stick like
a mosquito bite," Shepard said
as he laid on a gray recliner and
sipped Mott's Apple Juice inside
the bus.
Shepard said he donates
because hi. type 0 Rh-negativ e
blood, is universal and can be
given to children.
"That's \hv I'm such an avid
donor." Shepard said. "I know
I'm helping little kids. 'ho didn't
do anything."
Eighteen-year-old Alan Price
answered a few questions from
workers on the bloodmobile
Tuesday before he donated
blood. The entire donation
process which includes an
interview, a free cholesterol
screening and the drawing of
blood takes about 30 min-
utes. Price first donated last
year during a student drive at
Columbia High School.
"I just figured you all need
more blood," Price said- to
donor services employees on
the bus. "I've been doing it
forever."
People who begin donating
in high school are more likely,
to make giving blood a habit,
Pettyjohn said.
"They will generally become


donors for life," he said.
Anyone who is at least
17-years-old and weighs at least
115 pounds can give blood if
they bring a photo ID,
Pettyjohn said. The LifeSouth
bloodmobile typically is out in
the community seven days a
week and always is looking for
organizations who want to help
sponsor drives.
The 'bloodmobile will be at
Wal-Mart on U.S. 90 from noon-
8 p.m. through Saturday.
Anyone who donates at the
blood mobile or at the donation
center, located at 833 SW S.R.
47, by Jan. 14' can enter a
drawing for a free iPod.

operation until 4 p.m. Monday
afternoon," Cameron said, "that
was when we located the body.
It was recovered by the dive
team and transported to the
medical examiner in
Jacksonville."
The recovery efforts contin-
ued from the night before New
Years until the body was found.
Cameron said the body was
found near the location where
Norris was last seen swimming.
"It was difficult to find
because of the unusual cut-
rents because of the two rivers
running together at that point
and the rocky surface of river's
bottom in that area," he said. "I
appreciate the response and
cooperation of all the agencies
involved in the search and
recovery efforts."


Norris was not swimming
alone at the time of the accident
and Cameron said he appeared
to be a good swimmer.
"He had swam over there and
back once before so he had


reasonably good swimming
skills," Cameron said.
Norris was a graduate of
Tabernacle Baptist Academy in
Live Oak.

the


Dear Lynne,
So, the New Year
Make-over is holding. I am
hanging in there with the
workouts. When it comes to
getting on the eating healthy
train, one thing is really
annoying. Experts say, "Eat
so many grams of protein, so
many grams of fat."
In the real world, what in
heaven's name is a gram? -
Getting Healthy and
Puzzled in New Haven,
Comi.
Dear Getting Healthy,
I am with you. Whenever a
nutrition type looks into the
camera with all the zeal of an
evangelist and says, "Eat no
more than 100 grams of lean
protein a day," I want to toss
those 100 grams at the-TV.
Communicate, people!-
Ninety percent of us do not
immediately understand whale
you are saying. In this world,
if we don't get it immediately,
we usually don't have time to,
dig deeper.
We Americans do not think
in grams, kilos, or liters, we
think in ounces, pounds and
quarts, or more often in bulk
measures like cups,.
tablespoons and teaspoons.
Grams are part the metric
system which is used in the
sciences and in most of the
world's kitchens. We, and a
few other countries, are the
odd men out.
This guide should help.
One ounce equals 28
grams.
One ounce (28 grams)
usually equals 2 tablespoons.
Three and a half ounces
equal 100 Grams, or
7 tablespoons, orl/2 cup.
One pound equals
448 grams.
2.2 pounds equals 1,000
grams or one kilo.
SA generous quart equals
one liter.
Examples:
One tablespoon oil.or.
butter is 14 grams, or half an
ounce.
One tablespoon regular
salt (Kosher salt is lighter) is
20 grams, or nearly an ounce.
100 grams of meat, fish,
tofu, etc. (a standard protein
serving) is usually the size of a
deck of cards..
One portion vegetables is'2
cup, or about 100 grams.
Dear Lynne,
Big salads are my suppers,
but how should I treat raw
*.onions? I love them, yet raw
ones bite and repeat for .
hours. In Her Salad
Daze
Dear.Salad Daze,
Tone down onions three
different ways. For crisp
onions, bury sliced ones in
ice water for 40 minutes, or
more.
For softened and tangy,
sprinkle the sliced onions
with lemon, or vinegar and let
stand 15 minutes, or more.
To sweeten and flavor the
onions, try my latest trick.
One night when speed was .
needed, I sprinkled onions
with vinegar, salt, pepper and
sweet paprika, microwaved
them. They were soft, sweet
and had great flavor. They
mellowed out'the salad in a
new way. This version has
been a hit with friends.
SUPPER SALAD WITH
MELLOWED OUT PAPRIKA
ONIONS
Serves 4; halves or doubles
easily
The Onions: 1 medium to
large red onion, cut into
bite-sized pieces 1-' teaspoons
sweet paprika (Hungarian,
if possible) / teaspoon salt
'/ teaspoon fresh-ground black
pepper '3 cup rice, cider or wine
vinegar Salad: 4 big handfuls
mixed salad greens (could be
romaine, bibb, curly endive, leaf
lettuce, oak leaf, arugula, and/or
spinach), washed and dried
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1 small cucumber, peeled and
* cut into small'chunks '/ cup,


SPLENDID TABLE


Lynne
Rossetto Kasper

salted sunflower seeds 1 cup
shredded Asiago or sharp
cheddar cheese, or cooked
edamame (green soy) beans
'2 cups cooked meat, fish,
poultry or other protein (this
could be take out chicken, BBQ,
leftover roast, marinated tofu, or
leftover saute.
Heat up with any sauce or
pan juices if you have time.
Those extra flavorings are pure
gold in this dish.). Good-tasting
t extra-virgin olive oil, more
vinegar, salt arid pepper, if
needed.
1. In a 3-cup.nonmetal
bowl, combine the onion,
paprika, salt, pepper, and
vinegar. Cover with a paper
towel and microwave 3 minutes
on high.
E 2. Meanwhile, combine all
the other ingredients, except the
olive oil and extra seasonings,
in a large bowl.
3. Once the onions are
done, add to the salad with
3 tablespoons of olive oil.
Toss and taste. The salad will
probably need more vinegar,
salt, and pepper. Taste your way
to a pleasing balance. Serve
heaped on dinner plates.
Dear Lynne,
My in-laws leave food out
and uncovered for long
periods of time. We go for a
holiday dinner and find.that a
dish (dressing, for example)
has been out all .night and
day until it is reheated for
dinner. Then the same dish is
left out, uncovered, until the
following day when it is
reheated with other leftovers.
Is there is significant
danger to eating food that has
been left out? I've read that
bacteria start to grow on food
after as little as one hour of
being left out. Can you also
tell the appropriate amount of
time to let food cool before
refrigerating? Thanks! .
Anonymous (you never
know!)
Dear Anonymous,
'So many people never
think about these things, and
so many get very sick.
Food poisoning is at best a
bad stomach ache; at worst, it
kills.
If I sound like the food
police, I mean to. Your in-laws
may scoff, but they are
asking for serious health
problems for themselves and
the people they care about.
Here are the basics (and
may they make the point):
Dangerous bacteria
flourishes between 40 degrees,
(F) and 140 degrees.(F).
E Reheating does not
eliminate all dangerous bacteria.
All cooked food must be
" refligeraled within one hour,,
whether it is cool, or not. Keep.
cooked fish no more than two
days, all other foods no more
Mhan four.
(Exceptions are .most
cookies and cakes, which
usually can be stored at room
temperature.) -
All dairy and eggs (raw or
cooked) must be refrigerated.
Raw meat, fish and poultry
must be refrigerated until just
before cooking.
Raw onion, garlic,
tomatoes, potatoes, avocados,
bananas, stone fruits, and pears
can be stored at dark, cool
room temperature.
All other raw vegetables
and fruits should be stored in
the refrigerator.
When in doubt, always
refrigerate;

The game was tied 43-43 at
3:49 of the third quarter and
stayed that way for a minute
until Kenny Williams hit a
jumper. Union County closed
'the quarter on an 11-2 run
with Rodencia Austin scoring
eight of the points.
Trailing 54-47, Columbia
got treys from Shemwell and
Reynolds to start the fourth
quarter. After Columbia
missed chances, Kevin
Alexander put back a rebound
and Chris Perry sealed the
deal with his third 3-pointer of
the game.
"We were down 54-47 and


scored six straight, then we
had three possessions with
good. looks and just didn't
knock them down," Hosford
said.
Reynolds finished with 18
points (three 3s) to lead CHS.
Both Rayford and Shemwell
scored nine points and
Williams added eight. Harris
scored five points, with four
from Jakeem Hill and two
each from Jerry Thomas and
Jamal Brown.

(10) and Ted Young (9) each
had three 3-pointers for Union
County. Brendan Odem
scored nine points and


Alexander had eight. Justin
Griffin scored six points and
Willie Oliver chipped in three.
"Our guys did not show up
ready to play tonight,"
Hosford said. "We have been
holding teams to about 46
points per game and we gave
up 60. I felt their guards were
able to penetrate and that
shouldn't have happened.
They out-hustled us and got
all the loose balls.
"I knew they were bigger-',
and stronger, but that is a poor .
excuse."
Columbia returns to district
play on Thursday with a 7:30 "
