Traffic crashes claim
less people in 2005 than
in 2004, officials say.

By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.com
Colunbia County only suffered one
fatality caused by a traffic crash dur-
ing the New Year's holiday period,
allowing the county to finish the year
below i2004's traffic fatality count.
Columbia County had 30 traffic-
related fatalities in 2005, two less than
the count for 2004:
During the New Year's holiday trav-
el period. which took place between
Saturday and Monday, Troop B of the
Florida Highway Patrol covered
six fatal crashes.
Troop B covers eight counties in
North Florida.
One of those fatal crashes involved
a Lake City woman on New Year's
Eve.
Some of the surrounding counties
had more traffic fatalities in 2005,
including Suwannnee County, which
went from 19 deaths in 2004 to
25 deaths in 2005.
Columbia County had an increase
in traffic fatalities during the latter
half of 2005, with seven deaths in
October, However, there were only

After months of bickering

after the Joint 'Lake Cit,-

Members of the committee

some of the language in the
proposed interlocal agreement.
"I'm going to drop this (the
revised interlocal agreement) by
the county attorney's office,"
said Columbia County Manager
Dale Williams.

Emergency workers helped keep the death toll from traffic wrecks below last year's
tally.


five total traffic related fatalities in the
months of November and December.
"We've seen a decrease during this
time because people were beginning
to settle back down because of the
storms that occurred in the 'Gulf
Coast and the storm damage down
south," said Lt. Mike Burroughs, pub-
lic information officer for Troop B of
the Florida Highway Patrol. "People
were still in a repair period during the
months where the rates were higher."
However. unlike many of the other
counties that have seen an increase in
fatal crashes, Columbia' County's


population growth did not result in an
increase in fatalities..
"Many of the counties experiencing
a rise in fatal crashes are also experi-
encing growth," Burroughs said.
"Many people move into this area and
aren't familiar with the rural roads
and not familiar with the area in
general."

Improvements coming to Lake City area


2006 LOCAL FDOT PROJECTS


Florida Department
of Transportation has
big plans for 2006.
By LINDSAY DOWNEY
Ido'.nrelc ? 'lakecit)reporter.comn.
It was a big year in ,2005 for the
Florida Department of
Transportation's District 2 Office in
Lake City, and this year will bring even
more improvements to Columbia
County's roadways.
In 2005, the DOT completed about
half of the road widening on State
Road 47, a project that began in 2004.
"We were able to switch traffic to
Sthe newly paved lanes right before
Christmas on Dec. 20," said Gina
Busschet'r DOT public information

officer.
The SR 47 widening, which is esti-
mated to'cost about $27 million,
should be completed by the 'end of
2006 or early 2007. Busscher said.
'"The State Road 47 project has been
long-awaited in Columbia County and
we're glad to see that one is started
and is over halfway done," Busscher
said. "We think the residents and the
motorists who use 47 will appreciate it
whenever we finish. It may be incon-
venient for them at this time, but there
is light at the end of the tunnel.",
The DOT is planning at least six
more resurfacing projects for the
upcoming year, most of which are
expected to be completed by early
2007. Busscher said she hopes people
will be patient during the construction.
"A former boss once told me doing

INSIDE


major construction to a big interstate
is like throwing a dinner party when,
your kitchen is being remodeled,"
Busscher said., "Hopefully everyone
will appreciate it when we're finished
and out of the way."
The new projects for ,2006 will
include:
The resurfacing of U.S. 41/
U.S. 441 between County Road 252
and 1-75, near the south end of
Columbia High/School. The project
will include a turn lane at County Road
252 near the.Oasis Lounge;
The-, resurfacing of 1-75 from
U.S. 90 t6 SR 47;
The resurfacing of 1-10 from

CORRECTION
In Wednesday's issue of the Lake City Reporter, The Associated
Press reported in a story about an expansion of the Florida
program that screens newborns for disorders. The Associated
Press, relying on a state-provided list, reported erroneously that a
hearing test is among the 35. The Department of Health says that
the mandatory hearing test for newborns is separate from the other
screening procedures and isn't free.

Burroughs said he intends
to run for the District 4 posi-
tion, which will be vacated by
Jennifer Flynn as she pre-
pares to run for an open seat
in the state senate.
"I've been planning this for
some time," Burroughs said.
"Basically, it has been a mat-
ter of prayer and thought for
about a year. I've been totally
convinced of it for the last six
months and have been in the
planning stages. I just think I
could add some valuable
contributions to the county
commissioners that already
exist."
Burroughs, 46, was born
and raised in South Florida.
He is married to Geneva


he has been a part of for
nearly 21 years.
"My father was a trooper for
34 years," Burroughs said.
"I've learned a lot from my
dad and also as working as a
public servant. I obtained my
four-year degree in elemen-
tary education and I've always
enjoyed being with the
public."
Burroughs said one of the
county's priorities should be
teenagers and young adults.
"Through my experiences
with my job, I spend a lot of
time in the school systems,
spending a lot of time with
teenage students, and they
feel like they are kind of left
out in this county," Burroughs


Burroughs touched on the
issue of the commissioner's
discretionary funds, line-item
money that now allows each
commissioner to freely spend
$50,000 annually each.
"I don't agree with the dis-
cretionary funds," Burroughs
said. "It is nothing against any
county commissioner, I just
feel that the job is to manage
whatever money is allotted
that the taxpayers provide and
the commissioners should be
using that money for better
services to the citizens of the
county. We need to make sure
we are fixing the needs that
are present rather than
holding the money back."
Burroughs said he would


think by providing a larger tax
base, we would be able to pro-
vide more career opportuni-
ties to our children, teenagers
and young adults."
Burroughs also said the
county needs to seriously
consider the needs of senior
citizens. "
"I firmly believe we need to
do as much as we can for sen-
iors," Burroughs said. "Some
of the issues that seniors face
now are having to relinquish
their driving privileges. That
is a hard thing for a family, but
I want to make sure the coun-
ty can provide senior services
so they can maintain their
quality of life even as they
age.

EDITOR RIAL

The time

for action

is upon us

Leaders of both the Columbia
County Commission and Lake
City Council have been
talking a good game in recent
days about their sincere
desire to work together to resolve many
of the pressing issues facing our
community.
OK. We've heard this before and not
a lot has happened, but we'll accept it
once again at face value. The time has
come in 2006, however, to put action
behind the words.
Columbia County and Lake City face
acute needs in wastewater treatment
capacity, extension of drinking and
wastewater collection lines, fire
protection, recreation and a host of
other services. City and county officials
get together periodically and talk about
areas of cooperation, and progress has
been made on some fronts. In general,
though, what we see is a lot of
posturing, stalling and turf protection.
Hello, elected and appointed officials.
Your constituents are not well served
by this. They deserve, need and should
demand leadership and action.
This community has too much
opportunity to be held back by a lack of
vision and commitment.
It is 2006.
The clock is ticking on a new year.
Let's get the job done.

Tropical Storm Zeta finally

begins to weaken in Atlantic


Associated Press
MIAMI Tropical Storm
Zeta finally started weaken-
ing Wednesday after it unex-
pectedly maintained strength
for a day in the open Atlantic.
Zeta had top sustained
winds near 50 mph
Wednesday, according to the
National Hurricane Center in
Miami.
The 27th named storm of
the record-setting 2005 sea-
son defied expectations and
neared hurricane strength
Tuesday with top sustained
winds near 65 mph.
Though Zeta now
appeared to be breaking
down, the skimpy history of
January storms makes it
hard to make predictions,
said Eric Blake, a meteorolo-
gist at the hurricane center.
"The environment is
different this time of year. It's


kind of on the edge of our
understanding," Blake said.
The 2005 season will close
with the demise of Zeta,
which is only the second
Atlantic storm in recorded
history to survive into
January, joining Hurricane
Alice in 1955. Forecasters
expect Zeta to linger until the
weekend.
At 4 p.m. EST, the storm
was centered about
1,200 miles east-northeast of
the northern Leeward
Islands and moving west
near 8 mph. It is not a threat
to land.
The storm developed
Friday, about a month after
the 2005 Atlantic hurricane
season officially ended. It tied
a record for the latest devel-
oping storm since record
keeping began in 1851.
The 2005 season featured


14 hurricanes, including
Katrina, which devastated
Louisiana and Mississippi in
August and became the most
costly disaster in U.S. histo-
ry. The season also saw fore-
casters exhaust their list of
21 proper names and begin
using the Greek alphabet to
name storms for the first
time.
Before Zeta, Hurricane
Epsilon became only the fifth
hurricane to form in
December in 154 years of
record keeping.
Forecasters predict that
hurricane seasons will be
more active than usual for at
least another decade.
The 2006 season officially
begins June 1, but any tropi-
cal storms that form early
would be part of its tally. The
first name on the list is
Alberto.


DEAL: City, county close to agreement


Continued From Page 1A
at a future meeting, just
depending on when it's ready,"
Williams said.
'The only changes that were
made were the ones discussed
at the fire committee meeting
two meetings ago," Williams
said. 'They did make a couple
of other changes but they did-
n't change the outcome or the
content."
One of the changes the
county required was an up-
front agreement on how assets
are divided if the entities break
up. Another change requires
standard operating practices
for fire services to be defined
and agreed upon no later than
March 31, said Mike Lee,
committee chairman.
'There is nothing of a con-
troversial nature. We all
agreed in concept on some of
the wording we inserted," said
Lee, council nmembr. Lake
City.
Assuming the agreement is
signed and the partnership
later dissolves the method to


divvy up the assets will be
predetermined.
"We said we would use a
10-year historical average of
level of funding of each gov-
ernment and figure out
allocations from. there," he
said.
'"The other item was to final-
ize standard operating proce-
dures by March 31 to deter-
mine a level of service in each
area of the county to ensure
that we have the highest level
of service possible in each
area of the county," Lee said.
He expects the agreement
to be signed "in the next 30 or
45 days" after both the city and
county attorneys look at the.
document. Both the city coun-
cil and county board of com-
missioners must also approve
it, Lee said.
The city has provided fire
services to the county since
August without an interlocal
agreement.
Williams said it's taken this
long because the fire


committee has only met three
times since August.
"Why we weren't able to do
the interlocal in August? Well
it's pretty much this simple,"
Williams said. "Since August,
this is our third fire committee
meeting. So, while you may be
saying it took four months,
realistically you're saying it
took three meetings."
The three meetings
Williams referred to were
Wednesday's meeting along
with the Nov. 1 and Dec. 7
meetings.
The interlocal agreement
was supposed to be signed
Aug. 31. But according to the
city clerk, Audrey Sikes, the
agreement also was on the
agenda for the July 18
meeting.
If the interlocal agreement
is signed, the contract
requires that "if either party
wants to cancel they need to
give 180 days notice," Lee said.

Discussion coming for


recreation committee


By LINDA YOUNG
lyoung@lakecityreporter. com

The Joint Lake City-
Columbia County .Recreation
Committee has set Feb. 23 as
the date to meet with the local
non-profit youth sports groups
in order to gather information
on planned activities for 2006.
One of the issues the com-
mittee faces is determining
what recreational activities it
will fund jointly versus what
the county and city will fund
individually.
Having a meeting with the
non-profit groups that sponsor
activities such as girl's softball
and other activities was dis-
cussed at the Dec. 7 meeting.
"We think that would help a
lot, in trying to find out what
they want to do," said commit-
tee member, Joe Cone, city
manager of Lake City. "And
approach this problem jointly
so that we have a clear under-
standing of what
responsibilities each group
has."
Along with responsibility,
another committee member
brought up 'the issue of
accountability by the non-prof-


it groups running recreational
programs for football,
basketball or other activities.
There should be something
showing "how much they
raised during that year and
where those dollars went so
there's some accountability,"
said committee chairman Ron
Williams, a Columbia County
commissioner.
"We're not saying we don't
trust them, but we're saying
that we need accountability so
that if they need to increase
funding then we have a record
showing where the funding
needs to be increased,"
Williams said.
Recreation committee mem-
bers decided the group should
see whatever financial records
the non-profit groups are
required by law to keep.
As far.as adult recreation is
concerned the committee is
willing to provide infrastruc-
ture and facilities, but if an
adult team wants to play bas-
ketball, it should pay for all the
expenses, Williams said.
Cone pointed out differ-
ences in the relationship the
recreation department has
with adult groups versus the


non-profit volunteer groups
that sponsor youth recreation
such as girl's softball and
other activities.
'"The non-profit groups help
out a lot. They'll help to cut the
grass. They'll help with some
of that maintenance activity
where it becomes more of a
partnership. But we don't have
the partnerships with the adult
functions," Cone said.
Cone said that recreation
director Roger Little was con-
tinuing to track "expenses by
program activities" that will
give the committee a good
idea "of where all the money is
going by program activities.
Not just of active programs but
programs like the
maintenance program."
The committee members
will use those figures to formu-
late the interlocal agreement
later the county manager said.
In the meantime, "I don't
think the county commission
would object to an MOU
(memorandum of understand-
ing) to cover the funding
arrangement we now have in
place," said committee mem-
ber, Dale Williams, Columbia
County manager.


TRANSPORTATION: Busy year ahead


Continued From Page 1A

worked on resurfacing the
road and replacing seven traffic
signals on U.S. 90 between
Branford Highway and County
Road 100-A. The $4 million
project should be completed in
the spring.
In October, the DOTfinished
a $2.3 million, four-mile resur-
facing of U.S. 441 between
County Road 100-A and Falling


Creek. Busscher said area
motorists were grateful when
the road was repaved.
'They love any time you
resurface a road because it
makes it smoother and they
don't have to .worry about
dodging potholes and cracks
and it doesn't throw their car
out of alignment," Busscher
said.


The DOTs next venture is a
resurfacing of State Road 136 at
White Springs, which will take
about four months to complete
at an estimated $1.8 million,
Busscher said.
"It should begin any time
now," she said. "It includes the
resurfacing in Suwannee and
Hamilton Counties as well."

problems.
'Troopers here do an excel-
lent job on maintaining high
visibility on the interstate sys-
tem, and I believe that is one
of the reasons we've seen a
decrease," Burroughs said.


'The Columbia County Traffic
Safety Team is a real advan-
tage for the county and takes a
proactive approach in the
county's problem areas. I'm
also proud to see the Lake
City Police Department,


Columbia County Sheriff's
Office and FHP have a high
amount of cooperation among
the agencies and anytime you
.have that, you see better
results."


segment of the building indus-
try should become a mem-
ber," said CCBA member Al
Milton, of Sunshine Electrical
and Plumbing Supply Co.
'There are about 150 people
that should be a part of this
and don't know what we're
about."
World War II Veteran Walter
Halonski's voice began to
shake as he spoke during the
luncheon about his friends
who died in the war and how
he earned the Purple Heart
pinned to his black suit jacket.
"I don't like to talk about my
buddies that died because it
gets to me," Halonski said,
holding back tears.. "You have
no idea what it's like unless
you're there."
Peoples State Bank Vice
President Lonnie Haltiwanger
said the service of veterans
like Halonski helped give
Americans the freedom to
build the homes they desire.
"If we didn't have
Americanism and choice we
would live in homes they (the
government) build for us,"


Haltiwanger said. .
Haltiwanger has been a
member of the CCBA for more
than 10 years because it gives
her an opportunity to network
with other professionals.
"As a banker you get to
know your builders," she said.
"You build relationships and
you learn about the building
industry."


CCBA President David
Mangrum, of Standard
Plumbing Co., Inc., said the
organization promotes educa-
tion, as well as patriotism,
among builders in Lake City.
"It's to promote unity' and
information," Mangrum said.
"We support our men and
women in the military and in
our community."

Woman dies in News ife's wheabuts detailed
"W'7 "I" Wio w eraousde le


Years Eve wreck


By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.comn
A Lake City woman died
New Year's Eve when the vehi-
cle in which she was riding
overturned and her common-
law husband allegedly called
his family instead of 911 for
help.
At approximately 10:30 p.m.,
Dec. 31, Richard Frank David,
39, of Lake City, was driving
his 1997 Toyota south on Old
Wire Road, just south of
County Road 240.
Linda Michelle Kirkland, 23,
also of Lake City, was a
passenger in the vehicle.
According to reports from
the Florida Highway Patrol,
David lost control of the
vehicle and traveled off the
roadway. The vehicle over-
turned multiple times after
traveling onto the shoulder
before coming to rest.
Neither occupant of the
vehicle was wearing a seat belt
at the time of the crash and
both were ejected from the
vehicle.
Lt. Mike Burroughs, public
information officer for Troop B
of the Florida Highway Patrol,
said David had a cell phone on


him after being ejected, but did
not call 911.
"As he was laying on the
side of the road, he used his
cell phone to call his family, not
911," Burroughs said. "He tells
his family that he has been in a
bad crash. He told them he
didn't know where he was. The
family doesn't call 911 either
and goes to look for him.
Kirkland, his common-law
wife, is dying because no one
called 911."
Burroughs said another
driver arrived on the scene
nearly two hours later and
called FHP for assistance.
"By the time our units
arrived, Kirkland was dead,"
Burroughs said.
David was taken to Shands
at the University of Florida in
Gainesville. Reports indicate
he suffered a broken pelvis
and a possible collapsed lung.
It is unknown if alcohol was
a factor in the crash, although
Burroughs said that alcohol
was "most likely" involved.
'"We're just waiting on the
results to come back (from the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement)," Burroughs
said.

Goodbye,

and thanks
U usually, I
reserve this
space for the
actions of
some of
Columbia County's best
athletes. But today, I hope
you'll indulge me and allow
me to talk about myself for
a little bit.
SYou see, I recently
accepted a job at the Boca
Raton Daily News, and
Monday will be my last day
here at the Reporter. I've
enjoyed my two years here,
and I wanted to take this
opportunity to thank all of
the coaches, players,
administrators and parents
I've come into contact with
since I arrived here. You all
have been very nice to me.
Without the information
the coaches provide us, a
lot of athletes' names
would not get into the
paper.
The coaches have also
been very good about
calling in results win or
lose, which I appreciate. I
would like to list all of their
names, but I'm afraid if I
did, I would probably leave
someone out, and I don't
want to do that.
I'd also like to thank all
of the athletes I've had the
privilege to cover.
Without you, there
would be no story, and I'd
have nothing to write about
except what Tim Kirby and
I do in the newsroom -
which would be a very
boring read indeed. Thanks
for talking to me even after
losses or when I asked silly
questions (as I have a
tendency to do).
I'd also like to thank all
of the people I worked
with, past and present, and
I hope that my successor
enjoys his/her experience
here as much as I did.
Special thanks also to
Tim, who has guided me
for the past two years and '
knows more about this
area and the athletes and
.coaches in it than anyone
I've met.
Good luck to you in the
future, Tim.
I may be gone after next
week, but I'll still follow the
exploits of the athletes and
teams in the community on
the Reporter Web site.
So, good luck to all of
you and I hope to see you
soon.
Getting back to sports, it
was nice to see the
Columbia/Fort White
Soccer Tournament return
to Lake City last week. It
was a fun two days of
nonstop soccer, and for the
first time the girls were
involved.
There were some
thrilling contests, like the
Suwannee-CHS game that
decided the boys
championship.
It was also good to see
the crowds at the games,
which were far greater
than the usual numbers
you see at Columbia or
Fort White soccer games.
Hopefully, those
numbers will grow in the
future as soccer continues
its rise in this county.

Texas QB Young
runs for three
scores in upset.
From staff reports

Texas quarterback Vince
Young said all month his team
had a chance to defeat two-
time national champion USC,
and on Wednesday night, he
delivered.
Young ran for 200 yards on
20 carries, and scored the last
of his three touchdowns on a
9-yard run with 19 second left
to give Texas a 41-38 victory
,anl the national champi-
onship in tle Rose Bowl.
On fourth-and-five from the
9, Young broke away from the
Trojans defense for the win-
ning score to dash the
Trojans' hopes of a third con-
secutive national title and end
the USC winning streak at
34 games. He also added the
two-point run after his TD.
Young was a one-man
wrecking crew, as the
Heisman Trophy runner-up
completed 30-of-40 passes for
267 yards on the night.
He outdueled Heisman win-
ner Reggie Bush, who was
held to 80 yards on 13 carries
and scored only one TD.
Trojans quarterback Matt
Leinart threw for 367 yards
and what appeared to be the
game-cliriching touchdown
with 6:14 left, a 22-yard strike
to wide receiver Dwayne Jarr-
ett that put USC ahead 38-26.
But Young had the answers

Williams scores
late goal; Weddle
gets hat trick.
By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter.com
Both Fort White High
soccer teams started their
stretch drives with key dis-
trict victories against
Newberry High .on
Wednesday.
Mike Williams scored on
., a header off a cornerkick by
--Dann'y
Bowie,
about
left to
play to
give the Indians a 2-1 victory
in a game in which they
were short-handed.
"Now we know what it
feels like to pull one out in
the last minute rather than
give one up," Indians coach
Bob Hochmuth said. '"The
guys gutted it out tonight."
The Indians won despite
not having the services of
two of their main offensive
players, Connor Hayden and
Travis Collins, who were
both still on vacation.
Striker Andrew Sherrer was
also limited due to his
lingering back injury.
Hochmuth said Drew

ASSOCIATED PRESS
Texas quarterback Vince Young (10) rushes for a gain against USC in the second quarter of the
Longhorns' 41-38 win in the Rose Bowl on Wednesday. Young was named the game's MVP.


Longhorns on a drive that cul-
minated with his 17-yard run
that cut the lead to 38-33.
Then, after USC gambled
and went for it on fourth-and-
two, running back LenDale
White was stopped short, and
Texas took over on its own


42 yard line with 2:09 left and
Young started the winning
march.
, With the second-ranked
Longhorns properly concerned
about Bush, White led the
Trojans with 111 yards on 16
carries and scored three TDs.

The Longhorns' kicking
game almost cost Texas, as
David Pino missed the extra
point after his team's first TD,
and he also missed a short field
goal that would have given
Texas the lead on the first play
of the fourth quarter.

Canoes, kayaks are tickets


to see the Real Florida


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.corn
WHITE SPRINGS The
Suwannee River is often con-
sidered to be the crown jewel
of the Real Florida experience.
Elaine McGrath, the
Florida Nature, Heritage and
Tourism Center manager, said
the "Real Florida" is often
used as the tag-line for Florida
state parks.
'The Real Florida focuses
on the state's unique, natural
areas preserved and protect-
ed by Florida's state parks,"
she said.
To help local residents and
tourists gain access to the
Real Florida experience,
American Canoe Adventures
in White Springs has
increased its number of
canoes and kayaks with
39 watercraft this year.
Dallas Edenfield, a manag-
er at American Canoe
Adventures, said the canoes
and kayaks were delivered
3 p.m. Friday.
"We have them available to
rent to go on the Suwannee
Diver and we also sell them,"
he said.
"We're an Old Town dealer
and we have several package
trips available on the
Suwannee River, anywhere
from 1 hour to two weeks."
He said the outings are
hooked into the Suwannee
River Wilderness Trail, which
allows tourists to canoe along
the river and stop at various
organized campsites.

TONY BRITTILake City Reporter
Dallas Edenfield (left), manager at American Canoe Adventures in White Springs, and Justin Brown, a
helper at the store, open new canoes in anticipation of a busy season.


Wendell Hannum, owner
and operator of American
Canoe Adventures, said the
total of 39 canoes and kayaks
isn't the most he's ordered
from the Old Town Company
boat company in
Massachusetts.
"It's the biggest shipment I
ever got at one time," he said.
'This way they had enough
production in stock and they
shipped them all at one time,
which is good."


Hannum started the busi-
ness in 1993 and moved up to
the town of White Springs
about eight years ago.
"I just started the business
here and wasn't in it before,"
he said.
He said- he placed the
recent order in anticipation of
a busy canoeing and kayaking
season.
"I put the head of
Department of Environmental
Protection, Bob Ballard on the


river last Saturday, and he
said I won't be able to com-
prehend the number of people
that will want to go on the
river this year," Hannum said.
During his years in the busi-
ness, Hannum said he's
noticed that the sport has
continually grown in popularity.
"I usually sell about
100 boats a year and I sell
boats as far north as Atlanta,
and as for south as Orlando
and all around," he said.
