By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.comn
Three Columbia County residents were
arrested Wednesday after a home was
searched and 46 marijuana plants and
more than $48,000 in cash were seized.
Information provided by a citizen was
given to the Multi-Jurisdictional Drug
Task Force about the possibility of house
being used to grow marijuana, according
to reports from the Columbia County
Sheriff's Office.


Salvatore Toscano, 67, and Phillip
Toscano, 18, both of 427 SW Placid Lane,
and Deborah Strickland, 50, NE Roman
Terrace, all were arrested Wednesday and
charged with possession of marijuana with
intent to sell, cultivation of marijuana and
possession of drug paraphernalia.
Salvatore Toscano and Strickland also
were charged with possession of cocaine
and illegal possession of controlled
substances.
"This was a significant arrest in our con-
tinued fight against drugs in Columbia
County," said Columbia County Sheriff Bill
Gootee. "Not only did we collect as evi-

Hot-button issue
will be discussed
at meeting today.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
The pros and cons of hav-
ing a consolidated govern-
ment in Columbia County
has been a topic loosely
discussed here for years.
The Columbia County
Board of Commissioners is
scheduled to hear a presen-
tation tonight by a local
grass-roots committee that
wants to look at the merits of
having a consolidated
government now.
Long-time county com-
missioner and retired educa-
tor, James "Mr. Mont"
Montgomery, is scheduled
to address local officials at
the 7 p.m. Columbia County
Commission, meeting,
372 W. Duval St., looking for


new information about
consolidation.
County manager Dale
Williams said he's had brief
conversations with
Montgomery, who was a
county commissioner in
Columbia County for more
than 20 years, and
Montgomery has indicated
some citizens are talking
about the benefits of consoli-
dation between the City of
Lake City, Town of Fort
White and Columbia County.
"My understanding is that
Mr. Montgomery is asking
the board of county commis-
sioners to appoint a commit-
tee and the purpose of this
committee is going to be to
study areas that they believe
consolidation has merit, or
not;" he said. "It could
include everything from full
consolidation to just
consolidating certain
services."

Safety seat check point will
be from 1-4 p.m. today at
county sheriff's office.
By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter. corn
The Florida Highway Patrol and
Columbia County Sheriff's Office are train-
ing public service personnel to properly
install child-safety seats in preparation for
the agencies' upcoming child safety seat
check point.
The training consists of a four-day,
32-hour training seminar conducted by
Lt. Mike Burroughs of the Florida
Highway Patrol and Dr. Morya Willis, a


child passenger safety educator from
Shands Children's Hospital.
Attending the seminar are members of
the Columbia and Branford County
Sheriff's Offices, officials from the health
departments in Columbia, Union,
Branford and Levy Counties, and person-
nel from Shands AGH Mother Baby Unit,
Columbia. County Volunteer Fire
Department and Shands Rehabilitation
Hospital. ,
"Basically we walk them through the
information and also allow them time for
a lot of hands-on work," Burroughs said.
Those in the training seminar are
then asked to install child safety seats
properly in the vehicles.
"We're trying to get the message


across about the right seat for the right
child," Burroughs said. "After they
install a seat, we come by and check it
off to make sure it is properly installed."
This is in preparation'for a child safe-
ty seat check point, which will be staged
at the Columbia County Sheriff's
Operation Center on U.S. 90 East today.
'The check point will be from 1 p.m.
to 4 p.m.," Burroughs said. "We're ask-
ing people that need their safety seats
checked, or need safety seats, to attend
this check point."
Burroughs is asking those interested in
attending the check point to register
beforehand by calling (352) 265-0543 or
registering online at

tbritt@lakecityreporter.comn
The Columbia County


Board of Commissioners is
proposing an amendment to
the county's land development
regulations, which if adopted,
will have a financial impact on
area developers.
The proposal would
increase the bond mainte-
nance amount for developers


from 10 percent of the estimat-
ed construction costs of a proj-
ect to $2,000 per lot for
improvements in subdivisions,
such as road, drainage and
other infrastructure needs
within a year after the final plat
has been approved by the
county.

Pastor finds calm

through MLK Jr.


VA hospital
celebrates
leader's birthday.
By UNDSAY DOWNEY
Idowney@lakecityreporter.com
Reading the writings of
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
helped Pastor Brendan
White rid himself of the feel-
ings of hatred he had for the
people who murdered his
mother.
During the Lake City VA
Medical Center's 1 p.m. cele-
bration for King on
Wednesday, the Lake City
Seventh-day Adventist
Church pastor spoke about
the violence he witnessed
between Catholics and


Protestants during his child-
hood in Ireland. After his
mother and six other people
were killed in a bombing,
White was overcome with
anger. His life was changed,
however, when he read
King's writings about love
and unity.
"Hatred no longer
consumed my life," White
said.
About 120 veterans, hospi-
tal employees and local resi-
dents gathered in the
Medical Center Auditorium
for the celebration of King's
77th birthday, which was
sponsored by The Black
History Planning Committee
and the EEO/Affirmative
Employment Office.

Rainy weather doesn't spoil the


2006 Tournament of Roses Parade II


By LINDSAY DOWNEY
Idowney@lakecityreporter.com
It may have rained on her
parade, but Lake City resident
Ann Thrasher didn't let that
stop her from having fun at
the 2006 Tournament of
Roses Parade in Pasadena,
Calif.
Thrasher, her two sisters -
Jacksonville resident Susan
Elinoff and Lake City resident
Jane North and her sister-
in-law, Debbie Bedenbaugh,
volunteered with the Kiwanis
Club in Pasadena to help
decorate floats for the
Jan. 2 college bowl game
parade.
The women arrived in
Pasadena on Dec. 27. At
7 a.m. the next day, they stood
in a two-block line of volun-
teers all there to help deco-
rate the floats. They were.
assigned to work on the
Home Depot float.
"Our float was the one the
United States Olympians rode
on," Thrasher said. "It had the

USA on it with the five
Olympic rings and the torch.
Ours was probably one of the
more simple floats."
Volunteers were split into
two shifts from 8 a.m.-
1 p.m. and from 4 p.m.-


11 p.m. More than 500 volun-
teers worked each shift,
Thrasher said, adding that
her group was having so
much fun they stayed extra
hours. The women worked
Dec. 28-29, cutting flowers


and gluing leaves to the float.
"We were having such a
good time," Thrasher said.
"Whenever we worked in the
tent, the smell was wonderful
with all the flowers."
The women paid $85 each
for a tour that took them to
the parade. It was raining
heavily with strong winds
when the parade began at
8 a.m., Jan. 2. Thrasher said
parade workers said it hadn't
rained on the day of the Rose
Parade for about 51 years.
. However, the women from
Florida still had a good time,
even if some of their work
wilted in the rain.
'There's a lot of hard work
put into those floats and it was
really sad that it rained,"
Thrasher said. "A lot of the
flowers and different things
you could tell were coming off
the floats. But I think every-
body had a good time -
everybody was in pretty good
spirits."

The pond that. many peo-

On Tuesday, most of one

"It's a farm irrigation

set fine


example

Campers on a Mission are
spending quality time in
Columbia County and their
Christian love is paying big
dividends, although one can't
really put a price tag on this type of
fellowship.
Campers on a Mission are helping to
construct a new building for Mount
Carmel Baptist Church in southwestern
Columbia County. The group of retirees
moves around the country lives out
of campers and assists other
Christians with work on needed
projects.
They do their jobs with a cheerful
heart and, in most cases, they are
lifesavers for smaller congregations.
We're glad they are present and
answering the call in Columbia County.
The people who volunteer their time
for Christian projects through Campers
on a Mission will tell you they gain
much more out of the experience than
they give and that's the beauty of
helping others.
We all can learn from their example.

O&A

TODAY'S TOPIC:
Scientists are working to develop a drug
to help erase bad memories. What are
your thoughts about taking such a drug?


"I think bad
memories area part'
of life and you can't
completely erase
what's happened. It's
part of who we are,
you either go
forward or you
languish. It's part of
living."

a good idea if it
works.It's good
to erase bad
memories, like
war time
memories, to
avoid post-war
depression."

Lake City, 81


"I think it's a
bad idea if you
erase part of your
memory.The
person could have
more mental
problems
afterward."

"I think it should' only be
done on a selective basis. It's
a good idea, but should be
done on a case-by-case.The
English philosopher Bartran
Russell said something like
'People remember things
they should forget and
forget things they should
remember.'"

Tourist Development Council


looks back on 2005 and into 2006


By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter. com
The Columbia County
Tourist Development
Council's Board of Directors
met Wednesday at the Lake
City Quality Inn to discuss
tourism results from 2005 and
plans for this year.
Tourism for the year in
Columbia County is possibly
at an all-time high, as seen by
the numbers in the county's
tourist development tax, or
bed tax, collections report.
'The amount is up signifi-
cantly from last year," said
Harvey Campbell, executive
director of the Columbia
County Tourist Development
Council. "When all the num-
bers come in, there is a good
chance we'll break $400,000,
which would be our best year
ever."
The total revenue generat-
ed from the bed tax in 2004
was more than $365,000. The
official numbers for 2005 will
not be completed until March.
The bed tax is a tax
charged onto each hotel room
rented in Columbia County.
The board also explored
the options of repairing the
Lake City welcome sign on
Interstate 75.
"The current sign is an
electricity hog," Campbell
said. "The bill runs between

County Commissioner Ron Williams and City Councilman Mike Lee (right) Wednesday.


$1,100 and 1,200 a month."
Replacing the sign was one
of the options that was
suggested.
"If it is replaced, we want a
sign that will get the job done,
but doesn't have a lot of bells
and whistles," Campbell said.
"We want something to make
them stop here."
The council also has a new
radio station to promote
tourism in the county at
frequency 530 AM. The
station plays an eight-minute
analyst's loop of information
about the area.
The station can also
provide emergency
information to the public, if
needed.


The group also discussed
the possibility of an upcoming
television station that would
publicize information about
the area.
'"These could be real assets
to us," Campbell said.
With the Quality Inn clos-
ing, meeting space in the
county was also discussed.
Campbell said the loss of
meeting space in the county
could severely hurt the coun-
ty's tourism, as many groups
that conduct meetings in the
county may be forced to move
to another location.
"It is past time that we need
to address a, civic center here
in the county,". said Ron
Williams, District 1 County


Commissioner. 'There is
going to come a time that we
need a place to meet or people
will go somewhere else."
Williams said he and
District 2 County
Commissioner Dewey
Weaver would possibly come
up with the square footage
needed and the cost of a civic
center.
'The cost of construction
isn't the problem," Williams
said. "The operating costs are
what we're concerned about.
We need to find a way to lower
the deficit."
Raising the bed tax, which
is currently at 2 cents, was
discussed as a possible option
for funding.

COUNCIL: Lake City officials stand by decision


LINDSAY DOWNEY/ Lake City Reporter
Toys for Tots coordinator Walt Russell (center) presents Lake City
Reporter editor Todd Wilson (left) and reporter Troy Roberts with a
plaque for outstanding achievement in support of the 2005 Toys for
Tots Program.


Toys for Tots has


successful year


By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.comrn

The Marine Corps Reserve
Toys for Tots drive during the
holiday season of 2005 was
one of the most successful in
Columbia County in recent
years.
"We just had a great
response this year," said Walt
Russell, Toys for Tots
coordinator.
In 2005, the organization
was able to help 1,958 children
in the 'Lake City and Live Oak
areas. They were able to help
more than 1,800 children in
2004.
"We believe the additional
requests for help this year may
have come from those 'that
came from some of the flooded
areas," Russell said.
Overall, Russell said


2005 was one of the best years
for Toys for Tots in this area.
'The support of the commu-
nity was just overwhelming,"
Russell said. "So many people
called to help."
Toys for Tots accepted toys
and donations beginning in
November and continued to
collect until the week before
Christmas.
Because of a large number
of requests last year, the
organization was in need of
extra toys and.funds just days
before they were scheduled to
stop collecting.
However, Russell said a
tremendous outpouring came
from the community, and
more than $5,000 was collect-
ed in the final days of the,
drive.
'"The community really got
us. out of a hole," Russell said.


MLK: VA continues legacy


Continued From Page 1A

The VA Medical Center has
been hosting an annual celebra:
tion for King's birthday anniver-
saryfor atleast reiht years. The
event took place'-Wednesday
because many people were off
work or attending other King
celebrations Monday.
"It enables more' of our
employees and more of our vet-
erans to attend. It stretches out
the week," said Cindy Gaylord,
public affairs specialist for the
North Florida/South Georgia


Veterans Health System.
Fred L. Malphurs, director of
the North Florida/South
Georgia Veterans Health
System spoke about how VA
hospitals aspire to work for all
that King stood for.
"VA employees are in a posi-
tion to continue Dr. King's lega-
cy of helping others by being
'drum majors" for America's vet-
erans," Malphurs said during
his speech'.

cash, but we. stopped a grow
process that would continue to
put more on the street."
In addition to the plants and
cash, the growing equipment,
five firearms and two cars were
seized. More than a pound of
marijuana, valued at $900, and
drug paraphernalia were found
around the home.
"It appears Mr. (Salvatore)
Toscano has been in the busi-
ness of growing and supplying
marijuana for quite a while,"
Gootee said. "Now he's in jail."
Gootee said the Task Force
will continue to keep pressure
on the drug trade in the county.
"They are constantly work-
ing to eliminate drug traffic and
they change their investigative
approach all the time," Gootee
said. "You. never know where
they %will be next."

areas good and bad of
consolidation.
At the suggestion of City
Council member Mike Lee,
during the organizational meet-
ing last week, the committee
decided to ask each of four gov-
ernmental bodies to appoint a
member to the committee. The
governmental entities are Lake
City City Council, Columbia
County Board of
Commissioners, Columbia
County School Board and Fort
White Town Council.
Montgomery approached
City Council at its Tuesday
meeting. He requested it
appoint a member to the com-
mittee, but council decided not
to formally appoint a member.


In explaining why, several coun-
cil members said one reason
was the fact it's a private
citizen's initiative.
"Let's let it stay completely
objective. Even if it might have
Mike Lee and a county commis-
sioner on it, they're doing it as
private citizens," said council
member George Ward.
It was council member John
Robertson who initially saw two
problems with formally appoint-
ing Lee to the private commit-
tee, rather than Lee serving on
the committee as a volunteer
lending expertise as a govern-
ment official. Robertson
explained why he raised
objections.
"In my opinion, we would in


effect make that an official com-
mittee. Because it's a formal,
official action of council to
make that appointment or any
other appointment," Robertson
said.
"As James (Montgomery)
stated ... it's a private individ-
ual's initiative and I feel that it's
best that it stay that way," he
said.
"If we made that appoint-
ment, all meetings would be
subject to the public record
requirement law," Robertson
said, and added that would
cause added expense the com-
mittee may not have planned
for because it would be forced
to advertise its meetings
according to law.


But he said his second rea-
son "would be possible public
perception that we would be
endorsing" the committee,
although he hastened to add he
was not worried about "what
the committee may report or
recommend to whomever."
As for Lee, 'he said he wasn't
thinking of the technical ramifi-
cations of the word "appoint" at
the organizational meeting.
"I did ask the consolidation
committee to involve the four
governments. And at that time,
I was not necessarily thinking
about whether it was a formal
appointment or someone sim-
ply volunteering to serve," Lee
said.


COUNTY: Consolidation goes before commissioners


Continued From Page 1A

selected and the study complet-
ed, Williams said he thinks the
consolidation group would want
the county to appoint a perma-
nent committee, which is
required by law, to formulate
and develop the appropriate
documents for the public to
consider consolidation on a
referendum vote.
More than 10 years ago,
.another group of Columbia:
County citizens performed a
similar study on the merits on


consolidation.
'There has been a consolida-
tion committee appointed in the
past to come up with a draft, but
the draft never' made it to the
ballot," Williams said.
Williams said he believes the
committee is looking to collect
data on the pros and cons of
consolidation and the effects it
would have on the county.
However, he said the county
has not performed any inde-
pendent tests to determine the


effects of consolidation.
"There are individuals on the
county commission who have
expressed what they think
about consolidation, pro or con,
but I don't think the county has
ever done anything independ-
ently to say it would or would
not be in. the county's best.
interest," he said.
Montgomery and the grass-
roots group posing the consoli-
dation questions are not affiliat-
ed or registered with any local


governments.
"I think they would consider
themselves concerned citi-
zens," Williams said. "Knowing
Mr. Mont, I think they're all
pretty much community people.
He's very much community-
minded. I don't think he sees
city; I don't think he sees coun-
ty; I think he sees community
and he simply 'wants to try to
advocate for what he believes is
best for the community."


DEVELOP: Amendments could come for property


Continued From Page 1A
needs, the final plat is approved
and accepted for the county
appraiser. The county has to
approve taking responsibility
for the final plat and from that
approval date to forward one
year, before the developer is
released of responsibility asso-
ciated with the infrastructure
needs. If all requirements are
met, the developer will be
reimbursed.
The original amendment was
written as part of the Columbia
,County Land; Development
Regulations ownMarch 4, 1998.
The county's land development
regulations rules out rules and'
regulations for subdivisions
and other buildings and struc-
tures regarding uses, parking,
setbacks, etc.
County officials have sched-
uled a public hearing during
tonight's county commission
meeting.
The Columbia County
Planning and Zoning Board has
recommended denial of the
commissioners'. proposal and
has its own proposal.
The amendment was sug-
gested by commissioners
because the county was incur-
ring costs from. subdivisions
where the infrastructure needs


weren't properly.maintained.
"County commissioners, at a
hearing at one of their .meet-
ings back in August, wanted to
change, based on the. county
having to incur costs. within
developments where the subdi-
vider hasn't maintained the
improvements as required by
that first year,". said Brian
Kepner, county planner.
The proposed amendment,
however, is not popular with all
area developers.
Mike Klanderud, a
Realtor/developer, said he
believes there are several prob-
lems associated with the.
proposal.
"Currently, on the books,
they have a lawwhich they have
not been enforcing and just now
.out of nowhere, they want to put
this $2,000 per lot bond on us,"'
he said. "First of all, it's com-
pletely unnecessary; They're
making it very difficult for
developers to develop with that
kind of bond. There's no way. it
should cost that much to fix a
road a year after it's been done."
He said it's going to make it
difficult for people who want to
purchase the homes.
"I think it's wrong and unfair:
for them to do this," Klanderud

said. "$2,000 per lot is just way
too much. There is no other
county in this, whole North
Florida area that has this. I
think that move would be strict-
ly anti-growth. I-can't figure out
why they are tr-ing to penalize
the developers, for trying to
grow this county. I think they
should go with the 10 percent
(bond) that's on the books."
Like many other developers,
Klanderud said he plans 'to
address the commission during
the public hearing.
County manager Dale
Williams said the commission-
ers' office has received several
calls regarding the mainte-
nance bond, but he doesn't
expect commissioners to make
a final decision, on the matter
during tonight's meeting.
"Some of the arguments are
very valid," he said. "I don't
know whether the board will be
able to reach a consensus on
that tonight, but at least this
gets it in front of the board and


they can begin to discuss it."
Though the current land
development regulations
regarding the bond mainte-
nance amount is close. to
10 years old, it was always con-
sidered as optional.
The LDRs will allow .up to
10 percent of the actual road
construction costs, but it's not
even- mandatory it's option-
al," Williams.said. "Since the
board has ,,talked about
$2,000 per lot, we've .been
making it mandator:y..-.';"'--
Williams'said there are other
alternatives to the $2,000 per
lot maintenance bond.
He said the cotinty has never
had many problems from
developers who develop local
property on a steady basis,
however, because land prices
have increased, there are peo-
ple that come into the area and
develop one piece of property
and leave.

The decision came

The complete transition

During the first year,

The Eagles will be

"For the university, I

Big buck for Georgia boy


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

Lake City may not be the
waterfowl hunting capital of
the world, but for coot
hunters, it's not bad.
Last week, Lake City resi-
dent Joe Johnston, 21, and a
group of his friends headed to
the Alligator Lake Public
Recreation Area where they
participated their self-pro-
claimed and sponsored annual
"coot shoot."
'The coot shoot is some-
thing we made up a few years
ago to limit their population
for conservation purposes,
because there are so many of
them," Johnston said. "They
are competing with the other
ducks for food. We went out
there and made it a fun event
and started doing it about
three years ago."
Johnston said the first year
only he and a friend
participated but it has grown
since then.
Last week he and five of his
friends participated in the
shoot.
"About six of us went out
there and we even had a
retriever, so it's getting bigger
every year," he said.
The coot-hunting season
starts around late November
and runs to late January, but is
broken into different periods.
"I've been hunting them
since I was about 15 years
old," Johnston said. "It's a big



DOCK TALK



Bass biting

on rivers


By DAMON WOOLEY
Special to the Reporter

The bass fishing on the
Suwannee River has been
excellent over the last three
months. The proof has been
seen during the weigh-ins of
the Newberry Bass Club's
monthly open tournaments.
This club hosts an .open
tournament every month on
the Suwannee River. The date
is' usually the first Saturday
after the first Monday of the
month. There is a five fish
limit and anglers can either
fish alone or with a partner.
The entry fee is $50 per boat.
Back in October, I part-
nered with Joey Wood to win
this tournament at the mouth
of the Suwannee with a limit
weighing around 17 pounds
with big bass of about seven
pounds.
I must mention that there
are some excellent river fisher-
men who regularly compete in
these tournaments and almost
every team usually manages a
limit. In other words, you bet-
ter be on your "A" game if you
show up to compete in one of
these derbies.
In November the tourna-
ment was held out of Clay
Landing and winner Joey Pate
had about 20 pounds,
anchored by a 10 pound hawg.
Once again in November, Pate
and his partner brought
18 pounds to the scales with
big bass of 8 pounds to record
two wins in a row.
The most recent tourna-
ment was Jan. 7 at Ellie Ray's
River Landing on the Santa Fe
River. Although both the
Suwannee and Santa Fe were
higher than they have been in
the last six months, there were
some awesome sacks of fish
brought to the scales.
Donnie Feagle and his part-
ner had five solid fish that
tipped the scales at 20 pounds
for the win. There were also
several other nice bags of fish
weighed including a 14-pound
limit by Robbie Ratliff and his
partner. Reuben Thomas and
Chase Day also teamed for a
limit of around 14 pounds.
There were at least three fish


more than five pounds that
were weighed for big bass
honors.

Licensed Captain who is a
fishing guide at Bienville
Plantation and also owns and
operates Suwannee River Guide
Service.

from the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission to learn how his
deer would stack-up against
the biggest deer ever taken
in the state as listed in the
Florida Buck Registry.
Thomas was invited to
Monticello for a weekend of
deer hunting by Brad
Benners of Tallahassee.
The 235-pound deer's
antlers had 13 scorable
points, with the inside spread
measuring 19.5 inches.

adventure and a good way to
get outside. It's kind of unique,
because you're on both the
woods and water and when
you're on the water you're
hunting. It's a fun way to be
outside with your friends and
have a good time and, from a
conservation standpoint,
you're doing your part. The
money you buy for shells, it


goes for preserving their habi-
tat and preserving the animals
for future generations."
In the past, Johnston said
he's gone waterfowl hunting
as much as five times during
one week. However, he also
notes that waterfowl hunting
is a popular sport in this area
of Northeast Florida.
"It is popular and PCS in


Hamilton County has several
hunters that go there," he
said. "It's definitely a big deal
in this area of Florida. It's one
of the more complicated
forms of hunting, that's for
sure. Legal shooting time is
30 minutes before sunrise and
-you are usually out there way
before that setting up your
decoys.".

Birthday bass

Steve Downing landed this largemouth, fishing on a lake near
U.S. 90 at the Columbia-Suwannee county line on his birthday -
Dec. 31. The bass weighed 10 pounds and was 22 inches long
and was caught on a rattletrap.

From staff reports

Cody Thomas of Savannah,
Ga., harvested Florida's 10th-
highest-scoring deer when
he accepted an offer to go
hunting with his girlfriend's
brother.
Thomas took the trophy
buck Nov. 20 on private land
in Leon County at the begin-
ning of the general gun sea-
son. He then anxiously await-
ed the official score of the
buck's antlers to come back
