Controlled burn near airport set for today


Smoke from blaze could
cause roads to be closed
in the area near LCCC.
By LINDA YOUNG
lyoung@lakecityreporter.com
The controlled burn at the Lake
City Municipal Airport is rescheduled
for today because of shifting winds.
"We're going to start around 9 a.m.
We want to get some of the thickest
thatch burned on the south side


before the wind picks up," said James
Rourks, forest ranger, Florida
Department of Forestry.
The Forestry Department is con-
ducting the burn to eliminate the
thatch as a fuel source for fires near
the Osceola National Forest and has
grant money to pay the costs of the
project.
The burn was originally scheduled
for Wednesday. Heavy rainfall at the
beginning of the week made the
269 acres of thatch too wet to burn
that day and. officials announced


"The way the winds
are coming in, we're
going to have to burn."
James Rourks,
forest ranger
Tuesday the burn would be
postponed until Friday at the earliest.
Then the forecast for wind direc-
tion changed. The direction of winds
during a controlled burn is important
to prevent heavy smoke from blowing


over traffic lanes of a major road. That
is why a change in the forecast for the
direction of winds made moving the
day of the burn necessary again, this
time to today..
"The way the winds are coming in,
we're going to have to burn," Rourks
said.
On Friday "they're calling for west
or southwest wind. That puts smoke
over on U.S. 90 ... which we definitely
don't want to do," Rourks said.
BURN continued on 7A

Betty Novak, who had
grown up in New York City.


"I liked the small town
atmosphere," Novak said.
'ft like the greenery around
.,here and the people are so
,friendly."
Although she liked her
new surroundings, Novak
knew few people in the
area. But after joining the
Lake City Newcomers
Club, Novak said she felt
right at home.
"We make a lot of friends
here," she said, adding that

Levels of DEET in ground water warrants further testing


By LINDA YOUNG
lyoung@lakecityreporter.com
The researcher who found
concentrations of DEET in
wells and sinks last year
returned to share his latest
findings.
DEET is a chemical used
in most mosquito repellents.
Other chemical compounds
and pharmaceuticals were
also found in May 2005 by
Brian Katz, Ph.D., research
hydrologist, U.S.
Department of the Interior
U.S. Geological Survey
(U.S.G.S.), Tallahassee.
Katz found DEET during
the wet season of the year
and returned to take samples
during the dry season last
October to see if there was a
difference. At that time, he
also found various chemical
and pharmaceutical
compounds too.


"The May samples that we
collected had much higher
concentrations of DEET than
those we collected in
October. The concentrations
of DEET were about
2.7 parts per billion and they
dropped to about .1 part per
billion in the maintenance
building well," Katz said.
That was a well at the Lake
City Wastewater effluent
irrigation facility sprayfield.
"In Devil's Eye Spring,
which had the highest
concentration of DEET in
May, it dropped to barely
negligible," he said.
There was good news for
Columbia City Elementary
School. The October sample
showed no DEET in either
the well or the school
drinking fountain, Katz said.
He thinks the difference in
concentration 'levels was a


major recharge event to the
basin area that washed many
of the compounds into the
water in May, Katz said.
Members of the audience
asked Katz many questions
that included where such
large amounts of DEET
could come from to account
for the May sample
concentrations.
Katz speculated that
people put more mosquito
repellent on in May than
October, then come home,
wash it off and it goes
through the sewer to the
wastewater treatment plant
or leaches out of septic tanks;
into groundwater.
Katz said there is not
much research on DEET,
and he hasn't seen any stud-
ies on the degradation rate of
DEET, so not much is known
about the potential effects of


having it in water. He said
not much is known about the
possible effects of another
one of the chemicals he
found in the wastewater
either.
That chemical is plasticiz-
ers, one of which is called
tris (2-butoxyethyl) phos-
phate. Plasticizers are used
in the formulation process of
manufacturing plastics.
"We found it in the
sprayfield and we also found
it in' the monitoring well, not
the same compound, but
other plasticizers," Katz said,
and added it was below the
negligible level.
Finding it in the
wastewater at the sprayfield
means plastics are breaking
down, humans are ingesting
them, then excreting them to
the sewer system, Katz said.
There were also large


concentrations of pharma-
ceuticals such as codeine
from cough syrup,
antibiotics, antidepressants
and antihistamines in both
the wastewater effluent and
Devil's Eye Spring at the
Ichetucknee Springs State
Park. Dye trace studies at
the park show a septic tank
at the ranger station leaks
into the spring.
That means the pharma-
ceuticals are excreted by
humans along with the
plasticizer.
No research has been
done on the effect of these
substances on small
creatures.
"Who knows what affects
it may have on the
biota (crawfish, fish,
invertebrates)," Katz said.
Katz presented his
findings at the Ichetucknee


Springs Basin Working
Group meeting in Lake City
Wednesday. Katz already
presented his findings to the
Florida State Department of
Health (DOH), which had its
toxicology lab review the
data, said Mark Lander,
director of environmental
health, Columbia County
Department of Health.
Although these "are not
health concerns" now, it is a
"good idea to look at them
now, while we don't have a
problem," Lander said.
"This is not just a
Columbia County issue. It's a
state and national issue,"
Lander said.
Both Lander and Katz
expressed interest in a joint
venture between DOH and
the U.S.G.S. to conduct more
research.


New project may help protect Ichetucknee Springs


By LINDA YOUNG
lyoung@lakecityreporter.com
How to best protect the
Ichetucknee Springs basin
that feeds water into the
Ichetucknee Springs is an
ongoing project.
That involved "delineating
a springshed," said Sam
Upchurch, Ph.D. principal
geologist, SDII Global
Corporation, Tampa.
"A springshed is an area
where either ground or
surface water is contributing
to the flow from a spring,"
Upchurch said.
Ways of delineating
include "measuring the levels
of waters in the aquifer, wells
and streams," or "chemical
fingerprinting, where you
sample the groundwater in
the basin's wells" and
compare that to water in the
springs, Upchurch said.
"Particularly here at
Ichetucknee and Rainbow,
we were actually able to show
that water from a certain part,
of the springshed went to a
particular spring," Upchurch
said.


He gave an example:
"Water going into Mission
Springs is chemically a. little
bit different from the water
going into the head springs
or Blue Springs," Upchurch
said.
"So we can use' that not
only to find the extent of the'
basin, but in some cases
sub-regions within the
basin," Upchurch said.
A new project may help.,
Computer models are
being developed that "simu-
late the flow of water to a
spring to identify 'What
should be its springshed as
well," Upchurch said.
All of Lake City, including
the city wastewater spray-
field is in the basin, an area
that extends north of
I-10,and nearly down to Fort
White.
Since much of the water
that flows into the springs is
below ground, to find out
what is going on requires tak-
ing samples; of well water
along with water in rivers,
streams, sinks, ,springs and
lakes according to experts.
They identified 100 wells in


the Ichetucknee Springs
basin and conduct chemical
analysis on water samples for
"what we call a high resolu-
tion monitoring program,"
Upchurch said.
He presented his findings
at the Ichetucknee Springs
Basin Working Group
meeting Wednesday.
He first conducted
research in the basin in
1974 and said the signifi-
cance of that was "we didn't
realize the data we were
seeing was an emerging
problem with nitrates. We
saw them and just said, OK
there's nitrates," Upchurch
said.
High nitrate levels in the
springs contribute to unwant-
ed algae growth, among
other problems.
"Alligator Lake was getting
ready to go through one of its
periodic 'drainage episodes
(in 1974)," Upchurch said.
"We saw a plume of
Alligator Lake water in the
Floridan Aquifer that extend-
ed all the way down to Clay
Hole creek and Clay Hole
sink," Upchurch said.


He said that indicated the
Lake was connected to the
Karst system, a geological
feature, at Clay Hole.
Using sampling methods
from the 100 wells and sinks
less than five miles apart has
allowed him to delineate the
springshed. By comparing
the chemical content of water
samples he created maps of
groundwater quality,
Upchurch said.
"We did a groundwater
quality delineation, again to
see if we could find the
springshed in it," Upchurch
said.
Next he performed an
"exercise of seeing what
could be done" in 'terms
of delineating springs
protection zones, Upchurch
said.
Eventually the data collect-
ed will better pinpoint where
various chemicals, including
nitrates, are coming from.


First parking ticket

appeal gets dropped


By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.com
The Lake City Police
Department heard its first
appeal for a parking ticket
since the department began
taking a heavy stance against
parking problems in October
on Wednesday.
Since October, Steve Evans,
the department's Parking
Enforcement Specialist, has
roamed the streets of Lake
City, looking for those
violating parking laws.
He began issuing citations
in the middle of December.
The first appeal of a ticket
took place Wednesday.
"We've had a couple of
appeals scheduled before but
the people later decided they
weren't going to come and
just pay the ticket," Lake City-


Police Chief David Allbritton
said.
However, Allbritton said
more appeals have been
scheduled through the next
few weeks.
The ticket in question on
Wednesday was not enforced
and was dropped. One of the
driver's complaints was that
the parking spot was not prop-
erly marked and could
potentially cause confusion in
the future.
. Allbritton said the point of
the ticket was to inform the
driver of the parking violation
and he believed the message
got through.
"Our purpose is not to col-
lect someone's money but to
help create a little more order
for parking," Allbritton said.
"We're hopefully correcting
the problems."

Funeral for

Coretta

Scott King

a travesty
The funeral of civil rights
matron Coretta Scott King
should have been a detailed
testimony to the eloquent
woman who shouldered
more than her share of the pain and
anguish of the civil rights movement in
America. Unfortunately, it wasn't.
What took place in a mega-church in
Livonia, Ga., Tuesday, was a seedy
political rally at the expense of the
memory of one of the civil rights
movement's great pioneer women.
The funeral was not the sendoff
Mrs. King deserved.
It is shameful to think that in all she
stood for in life, her final earthly,
memory discussed in such a grandiose
public setting was anchored by liberals
and conservatives exchanging barbs
about weapons of mass destruction,
wire taps and other current events.
In life, Coretta Scott King was the
embodiment of grace and the eloquence
of precious life that stood for good
conquering evil. She deserved a funeral
that focused on these things. She
deserved a funeral that remembered
her. ,
Through it all, the president and
three former presidents, plus a handful
of dignitaries and even members of the
old guard of the civil right's movement
couldn't get it right.

she said. "When I got here it
(the club) was my saving
grace."
The Newcomers Club has
been in existence for more
than 50 years and currently
has more than 100 members,
said 68-year-old Gayle Hahn,
publicity coordinator for the
club. Membership is $10 per
year and many members stay
in the club even after living in
Lake City for years.
"It's almost like family,"
Hahn said.
The club meets on the first
Wednesday of each month for
a "Friendship Luncheon" at a
local restaurant and hosts reg-
ular lunch meetings on the
second Wednesday of the
month.
Close to 100 members met
at the Quality Inn, 3559 W.

"There's no
strangers here.
Just friends who
haven't met yet."
Pinky Moore,
Newcomers Club
assistant treasurer

for a Valentine's Day themed
meeting. Members chatted at
tables decorated with red
heart centerpieces and candy
conversation hearts as the
11:15 a.m. lunch began.
O'Steen walked around the
room, passing out name tags
and introducing new
members, who wore purple
ribbons.
The Newcomers Club also
gives an opportunity for new


businesses in the area to
make their presence known.
On Wednesday, Georgia
Green brought a Valentine
balloon bouquet and spoke
about her new business, The
Party Company.
Assistant treasurer Pinky
Moore, 68, said although the
Newcomers Club is mostly
women, anyone is invited to
join.
"There's no strangers here.
Just friends who haven't met
yet," she said.
Moore joined the club
when she moved to Lake City
in 1967. Members of the club
let her fold newsletters to
relieve her boredom and she
made a slew of new friends.
"When I moved here (and
joined the club) I thought I
was in heaven," she said.

BURN: Scheduled for today


Continued From Page 1A
With spring around the cor-
ner, the forestry department
has to hurry to get the job
done this year and reduce the
hazard for forest fires.
"Once the grass gets green
we can't burn it," Rourks said.
According to the burn plan,
forestry officials need a north
west wind to burn the thatch
at the airport with minimal dis-
ruption to people and traffic in
the' area. The wind is forecast
to be northwest today and that
puts smoke over the north


road to Lake City Community
College, which is why Timber
Wolf Road will close from 9
a.m. to 2 p.m. today.
Also affected is parking at
the airport for the Olustee
Battlefield State Park, which
will be relocated elsewhere on
the airport property.
Rourks said he does not
expect that the Trauma One
helicopter will have to relocate
for the burn.

LCPD benefit hopes to raise $18,000


By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.comrn
The Lake City Police
Department is preparing for
its 14th Annual Policemen's
Charity Benefit scheduled for
Saturday at the Columbia
County Fairgrounds.
The benefit, which begins
at 8 p.m., Saturday, is helping
to raise funds for CARC -
Advocates for Citizens with
Disabilities and Happy House
Child Care.
The goal is to raise approx-
imately $18,000 to donate to
the two charities.
"So far, through reserve
seating only, we've raised
$16,900," said Lake City
Police Chief David Allbritton.
The number does not count


individual ticket sales.
However, the number of
tickets sold represents
255 people that plan to attend
the event.
Including the police
officers in attendance,
Allbritton believes approxi-
mately 300 people may be in
attendance Saturday night.
"We hope we have a good
turnout," he said. "I'm excited
about how it has gone so far."
The Policemen's Charity
Benefit has raised
$151, 545.22 through the first
13 events.
A quilt, handmade by
Allbritton's wife, Leneva
Allbritton, will be raffled away
during the event. Allbritton
said the 3,000 raffle tickets
available have all been


purchased.
This year, a 1950s theme
was chosen for the event
rather than the formal ball
setting that the police
department has used for
several years.
A 1950s model car will be
on display during the event,
as well as an old jukebox.
Music from the '50s will also
be playing during the event.
A local Elvis impersonator
may make an appearance,
Allbritton said.
Door prizes will be given
away throughout the night.
Prizes were provided by local

Local artist Wally Reichert's
work reminds Barbara
Manthey of home.
"It reminds me of the house
my parents lived in in
Georgia," Manthey, a library
service supervisor, said as she
admired the watercolor
"Harold's Farm" Wednesday at
the Columbia County Public
Library West Branch, 435 NW
Hall of Fame Drive.
Reichert's painting depicts a
rustic home surrounded by tall
trees and green grass swaying
in the breeze. It is one of

display at the library. The
exhibit is presented by the
Columbia County Public
Library, Friends of the Library
and the Art League of North

First LtU William Eddie Rebrook IV (left) takes cover near the
ancient cemetery during a gun battle with insurgents in Najaf, Iraq,
Aug. 21, 2004. Redbrook, who was injured in Iraq says he was
forced to pay $700 for a blood-soaked Kevlar vest that was
destroyed after medics removed it to treat shrapnel wounds to his
right arm.

Soldier forced to pay

for missing body armor


By ALLISON BARKER
Associated Press
CHARLESTON, W.Va. A
former soldier injured in Iraq
is getting a refund after being
forced to pay for his missing
body armor vest, which
medic's destroyed because it
was soaked with his blood,
officials said Wednesday.
First Lt. William "Eddie"
Rebrook IV, 25, had to leave
the Army with a shrapnel
injury to his arm. But before
he could be discharged last
week, he says he had to
scrounge up cash from his
buddies to pay $632 for the
body armor and other gear he
S had lost.
. Rebrook, who graduated
from West Point with honors,
said he was billed because a
supply officer failed to docu-
ment that the vest was
destroyed as a biohazard. He
said a battalion commander
refused to sign a waiver for the
vest, saying Rebrook would


have to supply witness state-
ments to verify the vest was
taken from him and burned.
"When that vest was
removed from my bleeding
body in Iraq, it was no longer
my responsibility," Rebrook
said Wednesday.
Sen. Robert C. Byrd,
D-W.Va., questioned Gen.
Peter Schoomaker, chief of
staff of the Army, on Tuesday
during a Senate Arm'ed
Services Committee budget
hearing, and on Wednesday an
Army official said Rebrook
would get a refund for. the
$510 vest.
Lt. Col. Scott Bleichwehl,
spokesman for the First
Cavalry Division at Fort Hood,
Texas, said there have been at
least 21 similar cases. "In all of
those cases, not one soldier
was held accountable for items
lost in combat," he said.
Told of the refund, Rebrook
said: "How kind of them."


Man's trial for shooting,

will be at crime scene


By RUKMINI CALLIMACHI
Associated Press
NEW ORLEANS Tired
of waiting in the dark for the
lights to come back on, Walter
Vine took matters into his own
hands: He unscrewed his elec-
trical meter and rigged it to
bring power into his
flood-damaged home.
Vine, a building contractor,
broke the law and risked
serious injury or death. But
like so many others in this
hurricane-ravaged city, he fig-
ured it was the only way to
avoid the red tape and hair-
pulling frustration so many
have faced in trying to get
their electricity restored.
"People cannot possibly do
this by the book and stay in
the city," said Vine, who lives a
block from one of the city's
former mayors in the upper-
middle-class Broadmoor
neighborhood.
Five months after Katrina
plunged New Orleans
into darkness, roughly
124,000 homes and business-
es or more than 66 percent
of the city's structures still
have no electricity, according
to the utility, Energy New
Orleans.
The really frustrating part
is that since December, power
has been restored to
90 percent of the electrical
grid and the street lights
are back on in many


neighborhoods yet only
one-third of homeowners can
draw juice into their homes.
That is largely because the
city requires a permit before
the utility can reconnect a
meter at any home whose
wiring was damaged by flood-
ing. Getting that permit from
one of the city's few electrical
inspectors has been a bureau-
cratic nightmare involving
phone calls, waiting in line at
city offices and waiting some
more at home.
Late last month, Mayor Ray
Nagin suspended the rule that
said all electrical work done
by contractors needs approval
from a city inspector. Now,
any state-licensed electrician
can certify the work.
Greg Meffert, one of two
deputy mayors, could not say
how many residents have
taken matters into their own
hands, but acknowledged the
practice appears to be
widespread.
The Associated Press
interviewed six people who
restored power to their
homes on their own. Two of
them showed the AP how it is
done.
"It's better than sitting in
the dark," said Jeff Bennett,
40, who broke a small lock on
his Energy electric meter,
unscrewed the glass bubble
and popped off two pieces of
plastic that locked the current
out of the house. It was.that

simple.
Bennett is living in a trailer
home, parked alongside his
gutted house. The trailer is
powered by an orange exten-
sion cord running to a socket
inside his house.
For weeks after he rigged
his meter, Bennett would
wake up and hurry out in his
boxer shorts in the morning
chill to unplug the cord, in
case the inspector showed up.
In December, two months
after he turned the power on
himself, the inspector finally
arrived.
' "We weren't supposed to do
it. But everybody is so fed
up," said retiree David
Snyder, 74, who lives in a


pink stucco house. An electri-
cian tipped him off to how to
fix the meter to accept power.
The meter-riggers are not
getting the electricity for free.
"Even if a customer has ille-
gally connected himself, the
meter is still spinning and we
can still get a read on their
usage," said Energy
spokesman Chanel Lagarde.
Vine has had his lights on
illegally since Nov. 11, the
same day he applied for a
permit. An electrical inspector
has yet to show, but the utility
bills never stopped coming.,
"I told my wife, 'Pay it,!"
Vine said. '"The last thing I
want is for them to come anxd
put a real lock on my meter."

WORLD BRIEFS


Police accused
of violence in Iraq
BAGHDAD, Iraq Iraq's
most influential Shiite
politician urged Shiite-led
security forces Wednesday
to pay attention to human
rights, a gesture aimed at
appeasing Sunni Arabs who
accuse police of murder and
abuse.
Building a powerful, yet
legitimate, Iraqi police force
and army is crucial for the
U.S. strategy of transferring
security responsibility to
the Iraqis so that U.S. and
other international troops
can begin heading home.
Ahead of a major
religious event Thursday,
Shiite leader Abdul-Aziz
al-Hakim addressed Sunni
concerns when he urged
security forces to obey the
constitution in. performing
their duties.
"We call upon our faithful
security forces ... to
continue strongly
confronting terrorists but
with more consideration to
human rights," al-Hakim
said in a nationally televised
speech at a Shiite mosque
attended by 5,000 people.
Allegations of human
rights abuses threaten talks
aimed at forming a new
government comprising
Shiites, Kurds and Sunni
Arabs. The U.S. hopes
these efforts will blunt the
Sunni Arab-led insurgency
by having key members of
that community handed
positions of power.

Bird flu outbreak
found in Africa
LAGOS, Nigeria -
Africa's first outbreak of the
deadly bird flu virus was
reported Wednesday in a
large commercial farm in
Nigeria that raised
chickens, geese and
ostriches, and 43,1."i' birds
were slaughte-red.
International health
officials called for help to
prevent the spread of the
disease on the world's


poorest continent, where
governments are
:11._i--1,i' ..: ,to combat it.
Nigeria said the outbreak
was on a farm in Jaji, a
village in the northern state
of Kaduna. Agriculture
Minister Adamu Bello told
reporters the deadly H5N1
strain of the virus was
detected in samples taken
Jan. 16 from birds on the
farm.
Nigeria, Africa's most
populous nation with
130 million people, said it
would work aggressively to
halt the flow of any sick
birds to unaffected zones.
But farmers accused the
government of being slow
to respond.

Ballots being
gathered in Haiti
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti
- U.N. troops mobilized,
helicopters, trucks and even
mules Wednesday to
recover ballots from remote
areas in an arduous
vote-counting process as
Haitians nervously awaited
results of long-delayed
presidential and legislative
elections.
Bleary-eyed election
workers counted ballots by
candlelight into the late
evening after Tuesday's
vote, which officials hailed
as a success despite
massive delays that crippled
polling stations and enraged
voters. The poll was largely
free of violence.
An international observer
said turnout was high,
although no official figures
were available.
Rene Preval, a 63-year-old
agronomist who led Haiti
in 1996-2001, was the
front-runner among
33 presidential candidates.
His closest rivals include
Charles Henri Baker, 50, a
wealthy garment factory
owner, and Leslie Manigat,
75, who was president for
five months in 1988 until
the army ousted him.

Islamic officials call for end


to riots; 4 protesters killed


By AMIR SHAH'
Associated Press
KABUL, Afghanistan -
Police shot four protesters to
death Wednesday to stop hun-
dreds from marching on a
southern U.S. military base,
and Islamic organizations
called for an end to deadly riot-
ing across the Muslim world
over drawings of the Prophet
Muhammad.
"Islam says it's all right to
demonstrate but not to resort
to violence. This must stop,"
said senior cleric Mohammed
Usman, a member of the Ulama
Council Afghanistan's top
Islamic organization. "We con-
demn the cartoons but this
does not justify violence. These
rioters are defaming the name
of Islam."
Other members of the coun-
cil went on radio and television
Wednesday to appeal for calm.
It followed a statement
released Tuesday by the
United Nations, European
Union and the world's largest
Islamic group urging an end to
violence.
"Aggression against life and

property can only damage the
image of a peaceful Islam," said
the statement released by
Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu of the
Organization of the Islamic
Conference, U.N. Secretary-
General Kofi Annan and the
EU chief Javier Solana..


President Bush called upon
governments Wednesday to
stop the violence and protect
the lives of diplomats overseas.
'We reject violence as a way
to express discontent with
what may be printed in a free
press," Bush said after meeting


with King Abdullah II of
Jordan, who asked demonstra-
tors to "express their views
peacefully."
In Baghdad, Iraq's top Shiite
political leader criticized
attacks on foreign embassies
by Muslims.


Hamas warns Abbas about government changes


By SALAH NASRAWI
Associated Press
CAIRO, Egypt Hamas'
exiled political chief warned
Palestinian leader Mahmoud
Abbas : n Wednesday not to
make leadership changes with-
out consulting the militant
group, taking a hardened
stance ahead of negotiations to
form a new government.
. Khaled Mashaal's strong
warning may have been in
response to Palestinian press
reports that Abbas planned to
appoint his current interior
minister, Na,--er Youssef, as
deputy commander of
Palestinian security forces.
That would enable the
Palestinian leader to keep
control over the forces.


'This is a message to Abu
Mazen and other brothers in
the authority to stop issuing
decrees and decisions (before
consulting with us) ... as if to
throw them in our face,"
Mashaal told a Cairo press
conference. 'We will not deal.
with them as legitimate ... no
one can deceive us."
Hamas also was upset when
Palestinian Parliament speaker
Rauhi Fattouh appointed Fatah
activist Ibrahim Khreisheh as
director general of the legisla-
tive council after the militant
group won a big parliamentary
majority in Jan. 25 elections.
Mashaal, speaking after
meetings of Hamas' leadership
in the Egyptian capital, said the
militant group had not yet


decided on a candidate for
prime minister.
But another top leader said
Hamas had settled on Jamal
al-Khudairi, a businessman
who ran in the parliamentary
elections as an independent
with Hamas' backing. The offi-
cial spoke on condition of
anonymity because Hamas
had not yet made its proposal
to Abbas.
Al-Khudairi, a well-known
Hamas sympathizer, has never
addressed violence or recogni-
tion of Israel, focusing most of
his campaign speeches on
domestic issues like matters
like education and job training.
He has also talked about the
need for internal Palestinian
reform.


Mashaal said "al-Khudairi is
a respected Palestinian person-
ality," though he said Hamas
had made no decision.
He also reiterated that
Hamas would not recognize
Israel, shrugging off growing
international pressure to do so
as a condition for receiving mil-
lions of dollars in foreign aid -
essential for the lifeline of the
Palestinian economy. Western
powers have said they will not
fund a Hamas-led Palestinian
government unless the mili-
tant group renounces violence
and recognizes Israel's right to
exist.
"Hamas will not recognize
Israel," Mashaal said. "We will
not give legitimacy to
occupation."

CHS contingent
looks to take next
step to state.

Though sometimes over-
looked, it is an essential step
on the way to state.
The Region 1-2A wrestling
tournament will be at Lincoln
High on Friday (noon) and
Saturday (10 a.m.).
Eleven Tigers qualified for
region by finishing in the top
four at the District 2-2A. The
requirement to advance to
state remains the same a


top-four finish.
Columbia High placed
second to Lincoln in the dis-
trict tournament, which it
hosted on Friday.
"We came out and per-
formed well," CHS head
coach Al Nelson said. "We did
not reach our goal of being
the champions, but it is hard
to get there when you are
missing two weight classes.
Eleven out of 12 qualified for
region and that is a pretty
.good showing."
Greg Poole and Brady
Dicks were district champions
in the 145 and 215 weight
classes, respectively. Poole
went in as the fourth seed,


while Dicks was seeded third.
'That is not bad for them
being no higher seeded in
their class," Nelson said.
"They could have folded their
tents."
Region competition
includes the top four from
Districts 1-4.
"Region is mainly the
middle ground of making it to
state," Nelson said. "People
make a big deal about district
and state, but not much is said
about region."

only to remember last year to
realize the importance of

The Gamecocks ended the

Florida's Lee Humphrey%

Kelley missed one of two free
throws to give the Gators
(20-3, 6-3 Southeastern

Gamecocks became the first

the game for more than
10 years, first-year head Fort
White High* girls softball
coach Frank Howell wel-
comes the challenge of revital-
izing the Indians softball
program again.
"I've been an umpire for ten
years, calling high school, jun-
ior college and Division I
games and have spent 10
years in coaching my daugh-
ter's team at the Babe Ruth
level in Fort White, Lake City
and Alachua," said Howell.
Despite never having any


pitch


coaching experience on the
high. school level, Howell
.eagerly awaits the challenges
ahead.
"Our preseason classic was
rained out last weekend, so, I
really don't have a feel for this
team just yet," Howell said. "I
will have a good
barometer of where
we are at once we
play our first game."
Howell inherits a. 1
team of nine return- C
ing players from last
year's four-win sea-
son, including lone senior
shortstop Amanda Edenfield,
who has played on varsity
since seventh grade, and four-
year starting third baseman
sophomore Jordan Spires.
"We return nine players
from last year, we are pretty
much set on things except
first base where we will try


some different things out until
we find someone," assistant
coach Brenda Hunter said.
"We are led by our lone senior
Amanda (Edenfield) and fel-
low captain Jordan (Spires),
as well as junior catcher Kali
Hunter, junior outfielder Julie
Cole and junior pitch-
er Christa Strikland.
Cole has a very
strong arm and
Strikland has a lot of
good speed."
Howell brought up
eight-grader Laicey
Geiger to the team to back up
Strikland on the mound and
expects big things from here
also.
"Laicey (Geiger) will pitch
for us also, in addition to pos-
sibly playing other positions,
and is a very good hitter,"

our vision of where we are going,"
ESPN executive vice president John
Skipper said after Wednesday's

he said it was the greatest job ever

Joakim Noah was about to
go up for an easy dunk when
Kelley batted the ball out of
his hands. Florida fouled
Kelley and he hit two free
throws to push the lead to
four, 66-62.
Following Kelley's two,
the Gamecocks went 5-of-8
from the free-throw line in
the final minute.
Bryce Sheldon, who
entered the game averaging
3.6 points, made four
3-pointers and finished with
a season-high 14 points for
the Gamecocks. Teammate
Tarence Kinsey added
16 before fouling out with,
'2:14 to play.
Noah led the Gators with

region. None of the Tigers
advanced.
"For all the qualifiers that
went last year, it is a bad
memory for them," Nelson
said. "We want to make the
most of what we have to do
at regionals and be positive."
Senior Lewis Sharp, who
placed third at district, did
not wrestle last year, but he
pointed out another
possibility offered at region.
"I want the opportunity to
wrestle the kid I lost to
again, the guy who put me in
the consolation finals,"
Sharp said. "I wasn't pleased
with my performance and I
have worked hard this
week. If I turn up the inten-
sity and work on my
endurance, I'll be all right."
Nelson is concentrating
on what the Tigers must do.
He threw away his list of
first-match opponents, so no
one could look' past an
opponent.
"At region you always go
and focus on your first
match," Nelson said. "You
can't look too far ahead and
you can't over-strategize. If
you win that first match on
Friday, good things can
happen.
'The main thing about
region is surviving Friday
night. Four in each'class will
be eliminated by Friday
night and a lot of goals
squashed."

qualified for region follow

CORAL GABLES North
Carolina State earned its
second double-overtime win
in four games Wednesday,
blowing a 15-point lead in the
second half before recovering
to beat the Miami Hurricanes
86-77.
Miami overcame a 56-44
deficit with 6 minutes left in
regulation and sank late bas-
kets to force both overtimes.
But Ilian Evtimov's 3-pointer
to start the second extra peri-
od put the 16th-ranked
Wolfpack ahead to stay, and
they sank six consecutive free
throws to close out the win.
Cameron Bennerman
scored 23 points for the
Wolfpack, who survived a
1-for-9 drought during an
11 '/-minute stretch after
halftime.
With their fourth consecu-
tive win, the Wolfpack (19-4,
8-2 ACC) remained alone in
second place in the league
behind No. 2 Duke. North
Carolina State also needed
two extra periods to beat
Clemson on Jan. 29.
The result snapped a three-
game winning streak for the


Hurricanes (14-9, 6-4). They
fell to 2-5 against ranked
teams and face Top 25 teams
in their next three games.
The Wolfpack sank 11
3-pointers in the first 28 min-
utes, then went 17'/, minutes
without one until Evtimov put
them up 78-75 to start the
second overtime.
A basket by Cedric
Simmons made it 80-75. Engin
Atsur, Simmons and
Bennerman then made two
free throws each for North
Carolina State, which finished
22-for-25 at the line.
Robert Hite scored
22 points for Miami.
Guillermo Diaz added 18,
Anthony Harris 15 and Denis
Clemente 11.
Evtimov scored 16, Gavin
Grant 13, Simmons 12 and
Atsur 11 for the Wolfpack.
North Carolina State made
eight consecutive free throws
before Atsur missed the first
of two attempts with 18 sec-
onds left in regulation. Diaz's
driving layup with 9.8 seconds
to go tied the score at 65, and
Miami's Anthony King
blocked a shot by Simmons to
force overtime.
Harris was the first to score


in the extra period, sinking a
driving bank shot to give the
Hurricanes their first lead
since 2-0.
Diaz sank a 3-pointer to tie
it at 73 with 1:16 left in the first
overtime. Bennerman banked
in a shot for the Wolfpack, and
King tied the game again by
sinking a follow with 24 sec-
onds to go, forcing a second
overtime at 75-all.
The Hurricanes had 12
turnovers in the opening half.
One led to a breakaway dunk
by Simmons that left the bas'
ket shaking for 20 seconds.
A 38-31 edge in rebounding
wasn't enough for the
Hurricanes. On one posses-
sion they grabbed five offen-
sive rebounds but still
failed to score.

No. 8 GWU 81, Dayton 67
WASHINGTON Danilo
Pinnock scored 21 points and
George Washington won its'
11th straight game.
The Colonials (19-1, 9-0
Atlantic 10) opened with a 14-3
run, got 20 points from Pops
Mensah-Bonsu and 3-pointers
from six different players.
Freshman Charles Little,


making his first career start,
scored 13 points to lead
Dayton (11-13, 3-7). The
Flyers fell to 1-7 on the road.

No. 17 Boston College 72,

the conference with Miami.

INDIANS: Fort White in new District 5-3A FOOTBALL: Tafoya stays


Continued From Page 1B
Howell said. "With Laicey's,
Kali's and Jordan's bats, I feel
really confident."
Edenfield and Spires are
the two lone holdovers from
the 2003 playoff team and look
forward to this season's poten-
tial and agreed making the
playoffs is a realistic goal.
"We lost a lot of seniors two
years ago, we struggled last
year with a new group, but this
year we hope to make the
playoffs again," said Edenfield.
"We have a different coach
again, I've been through quite
a few of them, this team has
grown up together and we
want to win districts and make
the -playoffs again," said
Spires.
Howell had to be pleased
with the Florida High .School
Athletic Association (FHSAA)
decision to keep Fort White in
Class 3A, while neighboring
rivals Bradford High and Santa
Fe High were sent up to
Class 4A. .
The transition of coaching
should be a little bit easier for
Howell, who replaces former
coach Cindy Jordan. Not hav-
ing to deal with both Bradford
and Santa Fe as well as
Keystone Heights High, Union


County High and Interlachen
High (who all dropped to
District 7-3A) should'make
things run a little smoother.
Every two years the FHSAA
reclassifies teams based on
their attendance figures, with
a decrease of schools in 3A,
the FHSAA was forced to, drop
Fort White down one district.
The changes should help
benefit Fort White, instead of
having to battle five teams for
two playoff berths the Indians
will now turn their attention to
competing in District 5-3A
with just Chiefland and Dixie
County for the two playoff
berths.
With just three teams, get-
ting the top seed in the District
5-3A tournament guarantees
Fort White a bye in the district
tournament and more impor-
tantly a playoff spot, some-
thing Fort White hasn't-
earned since 2002-03, when
the Indians finished 16-8 in the
regular season, before losing
to Bell 1-0 in the first round of
the Class 2A playoffs.
The team to beat appears to
be Chiefland, who went 23-0 in
the. regular season last year
before falling 2-1 to Trinity
Christian in the Region 2-2A


semifinals.
"I called a number .of
Chiefland .games last season,
they are a really good scrappy
team, they will be tough to
beat," Howell said. "I don't
know much about Dixie
County. They have a first- or
second-year head coach. They
have been in a down time after
being good before, but they
are coming around.
"I walked into a good situa-
tion here. We are aiming for the
top two seeds, if not the top
seed. With our group of girls,
we have a good shot. We will be
tough'to beat. I'm looking for
us to make the playoffs and at
least get to the second round."
Howell well get his first
look at the new district when
his Indians travel to Dixie
County on Feb. 13, and then ,
will 'host Dixie County on
March 3, before finally seeing
Chiefland on March 10 on the
road. Chiefland returns to Fort
White on March 23 for the
final district regular, season
game.
Fort White opens its season
at 6 p.m. today at Trenton in a
non-district game, before play-
ing its home opener 7 p.m.
Friday against Bronson.

Michaels, said he could not
reach the broadcaster.
'We will probably discuss
and update our position
tomorrow," NBC Sports
chairman Dick Ebersol said
in an e-mail to The
Associated Press.
Mike Breen will replace
Michaels as the lead NBA
play-by-play announcer on
ABC/ESPN. He will be joined
by former NBA coach Hubie
Brown, hired in December
2004 as the analyst.
ESPN plans to use its vari-
ous television and radio net-
works and Web sites for day-
long buildups to the Monday
night games, which will start
at 8:40 p.m., about 25 minutes
earlier than previously. MNF
has not had a three-man
booth since Michaels was
teamed with Dan Fouts and
Dennis Miller in 2000-01.
Theismann was an NFL
quarterback for' 12 seasons
and had worked on ESPN's
Sunday night games since
1988. Kornheiser, who had
auditioned for the MNF job
Miller got, has written, for the
Post since 1979 and has
co-hosted "Pardon the


Interruption" on ESPN since
September 2001 with Michael
Wilbon, another Post writer.
"I've got about 27 gigs
right now," Kornheiser said.
"I've got radio, I've got televi-
sion, I've got The
Washington Post."
He thinks listeners do care
about who broadcasts games,
especially "if the telecast has
a certain amount of sizzle."
"Roone Arledge and
Howard Cosell, among oth-
ers, sort of changed the view-
ing habits. of America," he
said.
He also must adjust his
schedule.
Tirico has been a
"SportsCenter" host for
ESPN and handled play-by-
play of the last Orange Bowl.
He has worked for ESPN and
ABC since 1991.
"It's the best play-by-play
chair 'in sports," Tirico said.
'To be the next person. to sit
in it is humbling."
Michele Tafoya returns for
her third season as a
"Monday Night Football"
sideline reporter, and Suzy
Kolber was added as a
second sideline reporter.

Generous grand motherexpects

thank you to come with love


DEAR ABBY: I am a
widow who lives independ-
ently. I do my own cooking,
shopping and laundry. I have
good friends, play cards, go
to movies and, in general,
enjoy life.
, I recently gave my only
granddaughter, "Wendy," a
sizable sum of money. After
30 days and no acknowledg-
ment,. I mailed her a blank
thank-you card. Here's the
response I got:
"Grandmother: Thank you
for the, money. It couldn't
have come at a better time,
and, my family is very
grateful. I have always
appreciated everything you
have done for me, but I didn't
realize that 'family' had to
thank one another for every
gesture of kindness. I always
believed that love was thanks
enough.
"I love you very much and
want to be a part of your life
and have you be a part of my
life and my family's lives -'
but it's up to you. It's your
decision, because we have a
lot of love to give and share
together with no thanks
required or necessary. Love,
Wendy."
Abby, this is a girl with a
good education and a job she
has held for 12 years. The
only time I see Wendy is at
family gatherings. I used to
take her shopping and to
lunch. I stopped that when


Abigail Van Buren
wwwdeorabby.com
she never reciprocated or
invited me to her home.
From infancy through col-
lege I have given Wendy
toys, clothing, furniture,
money but no more! My
grandsons never ask for any-
thing and are loving and
respectful. I feel foolish and
used. GRANDMOTHER
IN IDAHO


DEAR GRANDMOTH-
ER: For someone with a
"good" education, your
granddaughter seems igno-
rant of basic good manners.
Her parents should have
taught her by example from
earliest childhood to say
thank you when a kindness
was extended, and the
importance of a prompt
thank-you note. (And
"family" is no exception!)
If Wendy "loves" you, she
has a strange and self-
serving way of showing it.
She owes you an apology,
and if it is not forthcoming,
you have every right to
direct your attention as
well as your estate to the


grandsons who have been
both loving and respectful.,


DEAR ABBY: I have been
with my significant other for
15 years, and I would like a
suggestion as to what I can
do for this special occasion.
We have always seen eye to
eye, and she's the best thing
that has ever happened to
me.
In recent years we ,have
been fortunate enough to
travel our great country from
coast to coast. We have done
pretty much everything you
can imagine, going out to
eat, going to movies. I just
don't have a clue about what
to do for our 15th year of
being together. Any ideas?
Please respond soon. -
CHRISTOPHER IN
MICHIGAN


DEAR CHRIS: I have a
novel idea. Because she's the
best thing that ever hap-
pened to you, why not pro-
pose marriage? And here's
how: Tell her that since you
have already traveled this
great country from coast to

Local doctor
has sailed in
3,700-mile
Atlantic race
By LINDSAY DOWNEY
Idowney(lakecityreporter.comr
Sailing can be both relaxing
and dangerous at the same
time.
Dr. Richard Reichert, 46, of
Lake City, has experienced
both aspects of the sport-
sailing to the Bahamas with
his family for pleasure and
testing his nautical skills dur-
ing a race from Florida to
Portugal.
"Sometimes you just want
to do some-
thing totally
different i in
from what
you do day-
to-day to
refresh
yourself. h
Test your Reichert
determina-
tion and fortitude," Reichert
said.
In 2002, Reichert sailed in
the ARC Europe, a 3,700-mile
race across the Atlantic.
Reichert, who learned to sail
more than 20 years ago with
his father, said he was sur-
prised and delighted when he
learned he and the four crew
members aboard his
schooner, "Heritage," won
first place in the first leg of the
race from St. Augustine to
Bermuda. The "Heritage"
placed seventh in the second
leg of the race and fourth in
the last 900 miles.
Reichert planned for more
than a .year for the ARC
Europe, which was the only
sailing race he has competed
in. He had to learn celestial
navigation and nautical safety
skills to prepare for the
excursion.
"You're completely on your
own. You're way out of heli-
copter range," he said. "It took
a great deal of planning and

New bass rules at
Ocala's Lake Kerr
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission passed a new
slot limit for Lake Kerr to
allow anglers to keep bass
less than 15 or more than
24 inches long.
However, the new rule
requires anglers to release
immediately any bass
between 15 and 24 inches.
Anglers may keep up to
three largemouth bass a day,
only one of which may be
more than 24 inches, under
the new rule.
* From staff reports.

pulling together. The trip, of
course, was extremely
challenging."
The men faced several per-
ils along the way, including a
close encounter with whales,
torn sails and a broken main
mast boom.
"We certainly went through
some tremendous storms in


the North Atlantic with waves
over 20 feet high," Reich'ert
said.
Although he enjoyed the
excitement and the chal-
lenges competing in the ARC
Europe, Reichert said he
probably will just sail for
pleasure with his family from
now on.


"I think crossing the
Atlantic once was enough," he
said. "I hear people say they
want to sail around the world
and I certainly feel the
romantic pull of that.
'The reality is the. ocean is
tough. It can be frequently
angry. It can be frequently
cold and wet."
