Few city vehicles are

Only a handful of 270 city
employees have a city vehicle they
drive home a 'night.
Although/the specific reasons
they have those vehicles vary, all
the criteria for having a take-home
city vehicle tie into job duties.
'We've got 200 and something
pieces of rolling stock," said
Lal-e City City Manager Joe Cone.
'-That includes everything from
cars and small pickup trucks to fire
trucks and street sweepers. Most of
those vehicles don't go home with

A couple of Columbia County vehicles are shown in the parking lot in front of Olustee Park.
The county has 45 vehicles that are allowed to be taken home by county employees.

County vehicles used to

enhance local services


Vehicle policy for
county has been
in place for years.,
By TONY BRITT
re.rinw'iahuc ierreporter.com
Municipal governments
and similar entities
traditionally operate as
businesses.
One of the major factors
separating the Columbia
County- Board of
Conminssioner's staff from
local businesses is the
amount of vehicles the
county uses to conduct
county functions and
operate on a daily basis.
The county staff has
45 vehicles that are allowed
to be taken home by county
employees, which does not
include sheriff's office
vehicles.
The list of 45 vehicles is
composed of a mixture of
cars and trucks and their
usage is governed by a
county policy that has been
in place for.several years.
County manager Dale
Williams said employees

take-home use.


must have a valid driver's
license and a good driving
record to operate vehicles
amd the county periodically
checks driving records.
"The general policies of
the county states that if you
are assigned a veliicle, even
if you don't drive it home ...
if you get a ticket, or your
license is revoked or
suspended, or any way the
status changes, the driver
has an obligation under the
policy to tell us," he said.
He said if the driver
doesn't comply and the
information about
violations are learned
through random checks,
Lhe disciplinary actions are
much more severe.
The county's policy
governing the use of
vehicles is between
15-20 years old.
"It's been revised to
account for new things or
things that needed to be
changed, but the county
has had a policy for a
considerable period of
time," Williams said.
The policy says anyone
operating one of the


vehicles will obey all traffic
laws and operate the
vehicles in an appropriate
manner. Safety is a prime
concern and employees are
responsible for inspecting
their vehicles and
conducting proper
maintenance.
"They can't leave
Colunmbia County in a car
without permission."
Williams said. "Most of the
time I give verbal
permission when its asked
of me."
The policy says the
transportation is for the use
of the employee only and no
employee shall transport
non-authorized personnel
in county-owmied vehicles.
Only persons expressly
engaged in performing
.work or some other good
for the county are
authorized to ride along
\with employees.
"We tried to discourage
an employee from carrying
family members in their
car," he said.

Students begin FCAT testing Monday


840


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter. com

For nearly six months,
from the start of the 2005-06
school year, students and
teachers have been prepar-
ing for the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test.
Beginning this week,
Columbia County students
will join students across the
state in taking the FCAT as
the state-mandated tests are
scheduled to take place
several days into next month.
Kitty McElhaney, school
district director of curricu-
lum assessment and account-
ability, said the window of
FCAT Assessment is from


Monday through March 10.
On Monday, Tuesday and
Wednesday, FCAT reading
and math tests will be admin-
istered in grades 3-10 and
retakes, for students who
have not met the graduation
requirements for FCAT, will
take place.
On Thursday, students in
grades 3, 4 and 5 will take the
nationally-normed reference
test (NRT), a test which
gives a student ranking for
achievement levels com-
pared with students across
the nation in the same grade
and of the same age.
The FCAT science tests
will be administered for
grades 5, 8 and 11 on
March 6-7.


"The science is not part of
the school grade this year,
but the individual student
results will include an
achievement level from 1-5,
similar to the reading and the
math," she said.
On March 8, the NRT test
will be administered to
grades 3, 4 and 5 in math and
for grades 6-10 in reading
and math.
iThe other days are
allowed for make-up.
"I think the teachers have
given the students the prepa-
ration they need for this test
as well as the parental sup-
port," she said. "Its not just
one group that can support
these kids, but it's got to be a
total effort."

School board schedules informal meeting

to discuss truancy, student suspensions


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter., com

Columbia County school
district officials will get an
informal look into how the
district is handling truancy
and student suspensions
during a meeting this week.
The Columbia County
School Board is set to have an
informal meeting 4:30 p.m.
Monday, in Room 227 at the
School Board Administrative
Complex Building, 372 W.
Duval St., to discuss truancy
issues and several other
topics.
"Ann Carroll (Columbia
County School's attendance


coordinator) will discuss tru-
ancy issues with the school
board," said Sam Markham,
Columbia schools superin-
tendent, who noted he has a
scheduling conflict and does
not plan to attend the meet-
ing. "It's more of an informal
presentation for the board
members, regarding tardi-
ness and absences. I think
she is going to update the
board on procedures and how
we operate."
The board does not vote or
take any actions during an
informal meeting.
"This is not a business
meeting and has no action
items," Markham said. "It's a


way for the board members to
get an opportunity to ask
questions about any items
that would be a point of inter-
est. These informal board
meetings are set up as an
information meeting, so the
board members can ask
questions."
In addition to Carroll's
presentation, Mike Millikin,
Columbia County assistant
superintendent of schools, .is
scheduled to.give board mem-
bers an update on what the
school district is doing with
.its construction projects,
including work at Westside
Elementary School's new
four-room wing, four new


classrooms at Columbia City
Elementary, the auditorium at
Columbia High School and
the cafeteria work at
Richardson Middle School.
School Board Chairman
Linard Johnson will also give
additional information about
the character education
program he plans to
implement in the district.
'We've already got a char-
acter education program in
the schools, but you can't get
too much character,"
Markham said, noting the
meeting is expected to last
about 90 minutes.

OPINION

EDITOR RIAL

Take-home

policy appears

to be in order

spent for gasoline and
maintenance on city- and
county-owned vehicles that
are used for employees to
drive to and from work in Lake City and
Columbia County but is it excessive?
News reports in today's Lake City
Reporter outline the policies governing
the use of public vehicles and detail the
numbers driven home from work each
day. There are well over 100 city and
county vehicles used for official duties
and to go to and from home. They are
used by officials ranging from the
executive level to patrol officer and
on-call maintenance workers. Generally,
the explanations for their use seems to
make sense.
The city manager, county manager
and sheriff all spoke confidently about
their policies and the reasons vehicles
are assigned to certain employees to
take home. Penalties for abuse of the
privilege are also in place. The city's
policy was recently enforced on an
employee, and that employee's use of
the public vehicle is now denied. The
county has also at times been required
to discipline employees for improper
use of public vehicles.
Members of the city council and
county commission should take some
time to review their respective policies
regarding this subject and see if the
number of cars and trucks being home
each day can be reasonably trimmed.
It is always a good idea to periodically
look into the regulations governing
issues of this nature. Not only can
money be saved and possible
inappropriate uses be stopped, but
public confidence in local government
can also be enhanced.

died Sunday,
Feb. 19, at his
Lake City
residence. His death caused
me a great sense of loss. I
have not ever enjoyed a
friendship more than my
friendship with Hugh. He
educated me, entertained me,
and made me laugh.
. Hugh was a generous man
who liked to pretend he was
tight-fisted. In a way, he
reminded me of the famous
entertainer, Jack Benny. On
stage, Jack always pretended
to be stingy, but in real life he
was extremely generous.
Hugh was .like that. He like to
joke about being a tightwad
but he gave untold amounts of
money to CARC, the Boy *
Scouts, the Girl Scouts, the
Children's Home Society,~The --
Boys' Ranch, the Veteran's
Domiciliary, the Columbia
High School ROTC program,
our school system, and the
First Presbyterian Church.
Hugh was big-hearted and
also liked to be playful. I once
asked him for a donation to
help us heat our school
swimming pool. He smiled
and said yes, he'd like to help.
Then he handed me a $5 bill. I,
had hoped for a little more but
thanked him and was about to
walk away'when he called me.
back and gave me a check for
$5,000 and a pat on the back.
"Come back if you need
more," he said. "Our kids
deserve a nice pool."
Hugh was a great all-sports
athlete at CHS. He was a
three-year varsity starter and
team captain on the football
team, and he was given the
game ball after the Tigers'
1929 win over Live Oak. He
later gave that historic ball to
our School Museum.
But Hugh, a natural leader,

was much more than a great
high school athlete. He was
his class president three
years, had a leading role in
three school plays, and was
the valedictory speaker at his
high school graduation.
Hugh loved his parents
dearly and was especially
proud of his Dad's
opportunistic business
acumen. He told me his Dad
once had an unexpected,
chance to buy -nome \valuable
downtown property, but didn't
have a check with him to
,close the deal so he wrote a
check on a piece of scrap
paper he found on the floor
and bought the property on
the spot.
Hugh liked to tell this story
about himself. He was born
July 5,1912, and some of the.
Fourth of July fireworks
carried over to July 5, his
birthday. So, he joked to
people that the July 5
fireworks were actually a
celebration of his arrival on
this earth!
Extremely patriotic, he
answered our country's call to
World War II and quickly rose
to the rank of captain while
serving our nation during
bitter fighting in Italy. His
bravery there won him a
Bronze Star and later he was
wounded in action and
received the Purple Heart.
A strong family man, Hugh
once used his military leave
time to travel a dangerous war


time route to see the place
where his beloved older
brother Kennerson had been
killed in action at another
location in Italy.
There has never been a
CHS graduate prouder to be a
Tiger he never missed a
CHS Homecoming breakfast
- nor has there ever been'
one with a better sense of
humor or more good will to
his fellow man.
It's too darn bad Hugh
Wilson was not born an
identical twin so I'd still have
him to teach me local history
and share his priceless sense
of humor.,

Hospital photos

anniversary in May; however
officials there need
photographs of the original

such photos, please call

Perfect vision
A husband and wife were
preparing for bed when she
looked at herself in a
full-length mirror. "Honey,"
she said, "I look in this mirror
and see an old woman, face
wrinkled, hair all grey,
shoulders hunched over, fat
legs, and flabby arms. Please
tell me something positive to
make me feel better about
myself."
'Well," he said softly,
'There's nothing wrong with
your eyesight."
Services will be held for the
husband Saturday. Closed
casket.

COMMENTARY


Committee

gets off to

running start


Consolidation Study Committee is
off and running after an
organizational meeting last
Wednesday, and based on the
headlines and events of the past several weeks,
the group's work is commencing not a moment
too soon.
City and county working agreements on fire
service, emergency medical services,
wastewater treatment, recreation basically
the whole gamut of shared programs and
services are
either under
review or /.
revision by one .
or both groups.
The time is
right to look
closely and
carefully at the Michael Leonard
minuses of Phone: (386) 754-0418
consolidation, a mleonard@lakecityreportercom
regional utility
and other concepts that will help our
community move ahead with both bold vision ,
and prudent measures to ensure a bright future
for Columbia County.
The grass roots committee contains a strong
cross section of business people and public
servants, the young and not so young, lifetime
residents, long-time residents, and those like
me, who have only been here a few years. This
balanced representation should bring about a
diversity of perspectives on the subject. These
viewpoints, in turn, will help the committee
look at the question from more than one side
and make the group's final recommendation a
better one.
Speaking of the final recommendation, don't
expect it to come in a matter of a few weeks or
even a few months. The committee is
determined to do a thorough job of talking to
experts, interviewing officials from other
consolidated city-county governments, hearing
out Columbia County, Lakes City and Fort White
officials and, in general, doing its job well.
Not that members don't feel a sense of -
urgency. We all'realize the community-has-
urgent needs that consolidation might help
address. The committee wants to act with if.I
may use a legal term deliberate speed on
such an important issue.
From important local, to vital national issue.
Former Vice President Al Gore made some
comments two weeks ago while addressing a
group in Saudi Arabia that were terribly
irresponsible. Talking before the Jiddah
Economic Forum on Feb. 12, Gore accused his
country of "terrible abuses" against Arabs in
the United States. He said authorities had
"Indiscriminately rounded up" Arabs and held
them in "unforgivable" conditions, according to
the Associated Press report,
This is an incredibly stupid, almost
treasonous act on Gore's part.'He needs to get
over losing the 2000 election to President Bush
and realize that making inflammatory remarks
for the sake of bashing the President and his
administration is reckless and lacking in good.
judgment.
Gore may have been trying to boost his owin
potential run for the White House in 2008 with
the comments, but what he did was potentially.
incite acts of violence and retribution against
the very people he seeks to represent as
president. Dumb... i
Gore's act looks even more foolish since the
administration has been doing a pretty good j6b
of making itself look bad without help from its
detractors.
First, the hunting accident involving Vice
President Dick Cheney was mishandled. ,
Cheney invited the criticism and media feeding
frenzy that ensued by not handling the matter:
differently from the start Information about ,
any unusual act involving the president, vice ;
president or other high-ranking members of the
administration should be made public by the ,
appropriate press secretary.
Letting the information about Cheney's ,
unfortunate hunting mishap trickle out through
the Corpus Christi, Texas, paper instead of
making the White House press corps aware of
the event seems both arrogant and foolish.
Cheney did his boss no favors in choosing to *
handle the incident as he did.
No sooner than the Cheney brouhaha began
to lose steam than Bush's own people shot him
in the foot pun intended again with the
deal to give partial control for the management
of some U.S. ports to a company based in the,
United Arab Emirates. No matter that the UAE
has been a loyal partner in the War on Terror;
and a U.S. ally, allowing an Arab nation to
control operations at several key ports in the


aftermath of Sept. 11 is, at the very least, a
public relations disaster.
... and Dumber.

TAKE-HOME VEHICLE POLICY


Deputies governed by internal policy on vehicles


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter. corn
Internal policies governing
the use of vehicles are com-
mon for state and local gov-
ernments and their
connecting agencies -
especially agencies that
handle emergencies. The
Columbia County Sheriff's
Office recently added a new
policy to govern its take-home
vehicle usage.
The Columbia County
Sheriff's Office has close to
100 vehicles and Columbia
County Sheriff Bill Gootee
said sheriff's office command
staff captains and
lieutenants, the victim-witness
coordinator and others are
allowed to carry their vehicles
home.
"Anyone who would


respond 24 hours a day, seven
days a week, 365 days a year,
has access to a take-home
car," Gootee said. "Regular
patrol deputies can take their
cars to the house, but they
cannot use them for personal
use. They're only allowed to
be used on-duty, and that's for
everybody."
Sheriff's department
employees are not permitted
to carry anyone in their patrol
cars and employees must
abide by the sheriff's office
vehicle policy.
Guidelines of the policy say:
Vehicles can only be used
when officers are on-duty, to
and from work or on-call;'
Deputies are not
permitted to have anyone else
in the vehicle other than for
the transport of a prisoner or


for anyone who has the
sheriff's permission for a
ride-along; the only exception
is Sheriff Gootee;
M All people who have
access to the vehicles are
sworn officers, with the
exception of about three
people;
Deputies are permitted to
drive the patrol cars outside of
Columbia County only on
county business.
Gootee said violations of
the policy could lead to
actions from five days off or
be as severe as termination
for misuse of a vehicle.
'The reason that officers
have take-home patrol cars is
because we're such a large
county, 726 square miles, it's
necessary in the advent of an
emergency or catastrophe


within our community, that we
could scramble close to 40
officers at one time," Gootee
said. "From Fort White to
Deep Creek, we have officers
that live everywhere in the
area, so in the advent of an
emergency situation they can
respond; as well as those
officers that have take-home
vehicles at the jail in case
there is an escape."
Gootee said it's beneficial
for the officers to have access
to their vehicles while at
home, but he's' instigated a
very strict policy and the staff
is aware of the penalties for
violations.
Before Gootee was elected
as county sheriff,
then-Columbia County Sheriff
Frank Owens and his
administration ran the


department with a different
policy.
'The vehicles were used
pretty much to take their kids
to school, pick up their kids
from school, go grocery
shopping and other things,"
Gootee said. "Since I took
office and under my new
policy, that vehicle is a
privilege and not a right, and
is to be used only for on-duty
situations."
Gootee said there haven't
been many problems
associated with the policy, but
right after he was elected,
there were some situations
that needed to be corrected.
"Some sheriff's offices
permit their deputies to carry
their families in their cars, but
personally, I think that is a real
hazard," he said. "I feel that if I


allow my officers to ride their
families or children in the car
and something happens on the
way to taking the child to
school, they've got to make a
decision; do they stop a bank
robbery, do they stop the
stolen car or do they put their
children out. There's a
risk-safety factor there, so we
just say: 'Nobody in the car
when you're off duty and
doing sheriff's office
business.'"
Sheriff's office employees
are not responsible for the
upkeep of their vehicles.
"We maintain upkeep of the
vehicle through our vehicle
maintenance technician at the
garage," Gootee said. "We
provide daily maintenance,
preventative maintenance, the
gas and the insurance."


CITY: For official use only


Continued From Page 1A
August 1996, he negotiated
use of a city vehicle for
business and personal use,
Cone said.
He also uses this vehicle to
take council members and
city employees to meetings
across the state,,Cone said.
E Finance Department
no vehicles.
Until recently, Finance
Director Dorothy Tyre had a
take-home city vehicle that
was used by the former
finance director. That vehicle
was recently revoked
because Tyre left a late night
meeting at City Hall, stopped
at Beef 0' Brady's for dinner
and had a beer before
continuing home. Tyre was
not charged with driving
under the influence and the
city took no other action. The
car was revoked because city'
employees can't consume,
alcohol and be on city
property, which includes
vehicles.
Fire Department -
two vehicles.
Both the fire chief and
assistant are on 24-hour call
to respond to emergencies.
In addition they attend
numerous night meetings
and both have city vehicles.
Chief Al Wilson drives a
2003 Dodge and lives
1.3 miles from the main fire
station. Assistant Chief'
Carlton Tunsil drives a
1996 Dodge and jives 8 miles
from the fire station. r
N Growth' Management
one vehicle.
Larry Lee, director, drives
a 2002 Ford truck and lives
4 miles from City Hall. Lee
attends numerous night
meetings '- including
planning and zoning and
code enforcement and
also makes inspections at
construction sites before and
after work hours.
Natural Gas
Department three
vehicles.
William Wynn, director,
drives a 2002 Ford truck and
lives 6 miles from work.
Dannette Dean, maintenance
supervisor,, drives a
2004 Ford truck and lives
2.5 miles from work. The
third vehicle is rotated to one
other "on-call" person,
with that assignment rotated
among staff members of the
gas department.
The natural /gas
department is regulated by
the Florida Public Service
Commission. Their rules
require someone on-call.at all
hours to handle emergencies,
such as gas line breaks,
leaks, low pressure calls and
other safety issues. In,
addition, the gas department
staff assist' the water and
sewer department if their
lines break or malfunction,
Cone said. I. .
Public Works -'three
vehicles.

Raulerson, construction
superintendent, drives a
2004, Chevy truck and lives
8 miles from work.
These employees are
on-call for problems with city
utilities.
Recreation
Department two
vehicles.
Roger Little, director,
drives a 2005 Ford truck and
lives 7 miles from his work
location. Thomas Henry,
maintenance manager, drives
a 2002 Chevy truck and lives
4 miles from work. Both
employees are on-call for
emergency repairs. "The
majority of recreational
activities occur after normal
working hours and on
weekends tournaments,,
practice, games, events, etc.,"
Cone said.
*Water Treatment Plant
one vehicle.
Steve Roberts, plant
director, drives a 2003 Ford
truck and.lives 10 miles from
the water plant. Cone said
that Roberts generally does
not take- the city vehicle
home.
"He has a daughter that's
in daycare. He knows that he
can't pick up that girl and put
her in the car, so he doesn't
drive a vehicle," Cone said.
As the only Class A
licensed water treatment
plant operator, Roberts is on
24-hour call and also has
night meetings at city hall.
Since construction of the new
water plant began. Roberts
has used the vehicle to make
after hours site inspections of
the facility to allow
contractors to pour concrete
at night.


COUNTY: Public Works employees use vehicles most



Continued From Page lA
assigned vehicles may drive
them to and from their homes
and employees who are
designated by department
heads and have a purpose for
doing so, may also drive
vehicles to and from home.
Williams said the county's
list of people who are
authorized to use county
vehicles to and from home
generally falls into two
categories: People who are on-
call and people who perform
their work outside of the
building, such as building
inspectors.
"Public works employees
make up the vast majority of
that number who are on-call,"
Williams said. "These are the


people who get the calls at
1 a.m. to remove trees from
roads or to go address other
pressing concerns."
With employees using the
county vehicles to carry them
to various locations around the
county, there is an internal
revenue code requirement.
"The internal revenue
department says a vehicle is a
benefit and the driver has to be
taxed for the value of that
benefit," 'Williams said. "We
have a reporting system where
drivers are charged the value of
the taxable benefit That value
is determined by the IRS. The
only exception is a true
emergency vehicle."
The county also requires that


vehicles be an extension of,
public space and .by policy;
drivers are not allowed to
smoke in the vehicles and the
use of tobacco is also
prohibited.
Mileage for the vehicles is
checked through fuel
consumption.
"We use computerized fuel
records and we receive reports
on the vehicles," he said.
The county ,commission
requires that every vehicle it
assigns be' properly identified
and the requirement is met by
having the county's largest
emblem placed on the vehicle's
door.
"We do not have any vehicle
assigned to employees that can


be used as a personal vehicle," ,
Williams said.
"The county doesn't give any- -
body a vehicle that says they .
can carry their family in it, they
can use it to buy their groceries
'or whatever. We do not have r
any of those."
The car that is assigned to a
county employee is normally
that employee's responsibility;
however, the county staff in the oD
courthouse annex often shares I
a vehicle -when a vehicle is ti
needed.
"I don't have an assigned
vehicle," Williams said. "I have '-4
access to a vehicle if I needed ,
it.", "
Weekend usage of county
vehicles is also restricted. I


by city council," said Lake City
City Manager Joe Cone, as he
pointed to a copy of the
document that governs use of
vehicles by police.
Officers can't use, city.
vehiclesto give a relative orn.
friend alift, but the 11 officers
who live within the city limits
can use their vehicles to run
errands, as long as they stay
within the city limits.
There are 32 "take-home
vehicles" and the city-assigned
vehicles to specific officers to
improve maintenance on
them, said Lake City City
Manager Joe Cone.
He said the city allows
officers to drive vehicles home
because "it provided
additional security in. .the
neighborhoods where the
officers live," Cone said.
I But unlike the regular city
staff who aren't allowed to run
errands in city vehicles, the
police department wants
'officers who live in the city to
use the vehicles in their free
time. -
"Police officers assigned
marked police vehicles are
encouraged and permitted to
use the vehicles while off duty
anywhere within the city limits
of Lake City, Police vehicles
outside the city limits will be
used for, official business
only," according to LCPD

General Order No. 40.05.
The reason to encourage
such use within the city is
because ,it serves to deter
crime by increasing the visible
presence of police in the
community, Cone said -
"'So the' perception to the
community is that there's lots
of officers on the street," Cone
said.


officers are off-duty they must
still carry their duty weapons,
notify police dispatch where
they are, leave their police
radios on and respond to
requests to handle incidents-if
* necessary.' according tQ'LCP-ED
General Order No. 40'.i."" '
And when the officers drive
their vehicles home from
work, they are still considered


Part of that is not illusory on duty until they notify the
though. Because although the police dispatcher that they are

home. But because some of
the vehicles are shared or pool
cars, not every officer has a
vehicle to :drive, home, and
there was criteria, Cone said.
"We did set a limit. First
choice-is you have to live in the
'city. So. if the gu.V lives in
Gainesville, we don't let him
take the car home," Cone said.
Of the officers who live
outside the city limits., 13 live
within 5 miles of city limits.

'Wolves pound Polk


Schlitter notches
win, Beranek hits
second home run.

By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter. com
Things are not yet
ratcheting up for Lake City
Community College baseball,
but they are starting to click.
The Timberwolves beat
Polk Community College, 9-3,
at home on Saturday.
Starter Brian Schlitter (3-0)
stayed in the stretch for much
of his 6% innings, but he only
allowed one earned run. He
gave up eight hits, walked
four and struck out three.
Tyler Beranek ripped a
three-run home run, plus a
double, and scored three
times. Jovan Rosa had a
bases-loaded double to drive
in two runs. He also stole a
base and scored a run. Travis
Jones, Avery Johnson and
catcher Mario Williams also
had two hits.
"Schlitter's velocity was
good," LCCC head coach Tom
Clark said. "He actually got
better in the last three
innings. He threw harder than
he did in the first three
innings and he competed."
Derick Himpsl relieved
Schlitter after a two-out
double in the sixth inning. He
got out of. the inning when
Williams threw out a runner
trying to advance to third on a
ball that rolled away from the
plate.
However, Himpsl walked
the first two hitters in the
eighth inning and gave way to
Scott Mancauskas.
. Mancauskas (two innings,
two hits, one run, one walk)
got a foul pop, but walked one
to load the bases and went to
3-0 on the next hitter. He
started throwing strikes and
the batter grounded into a
double play.
The 'Wolves also had an

inning-ending double play in
the second inning.
"We have got the best
infield I've had in 25 years and
it has got to be the best in the
state," Clark said. "That's
what drives me nuts with the


walks. If we throw strikes, we
are going to win."
Lake City failed 2-0, before
scoring une run in the' third
inning and' three in both the
fourth and fifth. Rosa's double
capped a two-run seventh


inning.
After a deep fly out in his,
first at bat, Beranek led off the
fourth inning with a double.
Brandon Hall singled him in.

It took a run in the top of
the -,evenUith inning to notch
the victory. Brandon Rolfe ,
starting the winning rally,
with a single and both
Hunter Allen and Seth
Carswell bunted for base
hits. Chris Schneiders

singled, Allen was hit by a
pitch and Carswell singled
and Schneiders sent Rolfe
home with another ground.
out.
Columbia scored two
runs in the first inning.

LCCC: Plays a pair today


Continued From Page 1B
Rosa singled and scored on a
throwing error. Luis Sanchez
reached on a force out and
scored on a single by
Williams.
Beranek's home run came
after Jones reached on an
error and Stephen Rassel
walked. It came on the ensu-
ing pitch after Polk's coach
went out for a conference on
the mound. He received an
intentional walk the next time
up.
"I was not trying to hit a
home run," Beranek said. "I
was just trying to drive in the
run and I got it up in the air
and it carried."
Beranek also had a double
and home run on Thursday.
It was the first two dingers
for the pre-season
All-American.
"I have been working with
coach on keeping my weight
on my back foot, keeping my
head locked in, and hitting
through the ball," Beranek
said.
Clark hopes the hitting
spurt will be contagious in
the middle of the lineup.
"I have not been happy
with our 3-4-5 hitters," Clark
said. "It is a big lift for' us
when Beranek -is hitting like


that."
Jones singled to lead off
the seventh inning. He stole
second and moved to third on
a passed ball, but was thrown
out at the plate on Rassel's
ground ball. Beranek and
Hall walked to set the stage
for Rosa.
In the second inning,
Ibrahim Lopez singled and
Williams doubled him to
third. Jones beat out a hit to
score Lopez.
Jerod Mathis (double),
Josh Siebenaler and Billy
Falconio (run scored) each
had two hits for Polk (10-8).
Josh Appelbaum doubled,
scored two runs and had a
sacrifice fly. Tim Russell had
an RBI-double.
Brock Schnabel gave up
10 hits and five earned runs
in five innings to take the
loss. Mike Melton pitched
three innings with two hits
and two runs.
Lake City (11-7) plays
Kellogg Community College
in a noon doubleheader
today. Stephen Barnes will
start the first game. Lake City
also has a home make-up
game against Pasco
Hernando Community
College at 2:30 p.m. Monday.

Brian Pitman pitched the

striking-out two.
"Both pitchers did a good
job," Bennett said. "We made a
costly error early and Tyler
had to throw to 'four extra
batters, but we improved from

double play and made some
huge defensive plays later in

her husband Josh have two children, Joshua 3, and Emily, 1. My daughter Becky
Downing 23, and her husband Steve have been married for 2 years.
I am a U.S. Army veteran with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary
Education. I have been employed with the Florida Highway Patrol for approximately 21 years.
Nearly 16 years of my career with the FHP have been as a supervisor and administrator. I cur-
rently hold the rank of Lieutenant and serve as the Public Affairs Officer for Troop B.
During my years of service with the FHP, I have gained the experience needed to be
an effective County Commissioner. I served as the FHP Liaison to the County Emergency
Operations Center during the Hurricanes of 2004 and 2005. This experience has only added
to my training in Crisis Management.
Columbia County is experiencing phenomenal growth. I support a plan that will help
our county manage this growth in a manner beneficial to its taxpayers. It is imperative that the
next County Commissioner of District 4 possess the ability to unite the entire Board of County
Commissioners to create a vision for our future. We need to introduce Industrial Parks and
offer industry incentives to help attract businesses to our area. Thriving businesses in our
county would increase our tax base to prevent the tax payer from bearing the full burden of
increased growth. An increased tax base would help fund increases we need in Public Safety
such as Fire, EMS, and Law Enforcement.
We must also address the issue of our Senior Services during this growth period. Due
to diminished transportation for our seniors, transportation has been cut from 20 hours a week
to only 5 hours. We must take care of our mature generation while simultaneously consider-
ing increasing activities for our children and youth. Simply put, we must provide an atmos-
phere for our children and their future families to stay and be active citizens of our county.
I support a plan to lead Columbia County towards a bright future. The only method
of implementing this plan is to hold the office of County Commissioner for District 4. To
accomplish this task, I need your support. Do your part in helping our county grow in a pos-
itive direction. Vote Mike Burroughs! The Right Choice To Be Your Voice!!

Target

your next

employer
If you like clothes and
have ever had the
opportunity to wear
something custom-made,
you felt pretty good every
time you wore it. You chose
the fabric and style and it
was measured just for you.
It was targeted just for you,
and it made you feel
special.
Your next employer
should be targeted, just like
a tailor-made garment. You
are the tailor and you need
to make your impressions
special. You make that
employer stand out and
what happens?
You become special.
You become noticed.
You become just a little
taller than the rest.
You have done what
too many others fail to do.
You have put forth a
little more effort to get
hired, and it matters to
employers.
How do you tailor-make
your presentation?
Start with your research.

BED TAX REVENUE CiMBS


Tourism


Hotel bed tax
numbers show
positive growth.
By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter. corn
The Columbia County
Tourist Development Tax
Collections Report showed
an increase in bed tax dollars
collected from 2004 to 2005.
Columbia County collected
$412,946 in bed tax dollars in
2005, up 16 percent from
2004 when the tax brought in
$365,401.73.
The tourist development
tax, or bed tax, is a 2 percent
charge on any room rental in
Columbia County.
"It's on any rentals that are
less than six months," said
Harvey Campbell, Executive
Director of the Columbia
County Tourist Development
Council. "It could be on
apartment complexes, but
the bulk of the tax comes
from hotel and campground
rentals."
The county had a
significant increase in bed
tax dollars collected from
2004 to 2005, a bigger jump
than the county has seen in
recent years.
"I don't think there is one
single factor (of why there
was an increase)," Campbell
said. "Among the things,
No. 1 is the quality of
lodging is improving, along
with the higher room rate"I s.Y ,
We've als.c had two


is


outstanding Olustee battle
festivals in a row, although
the one we just had isn't
reflected in those numbers."
Campbell also said sports
marketing and programs
surrounding the Suwannee
River Wilderness Trail may
have contributed to the
increase.
In addition, 2005's
hurricane season also helped
draw many to Columbia
County.
"Obviously I think the
hurricanes have affected
(the increase) some,"
Campbell said. "Even though
in all candor, Katrina did not
in the extreme of things
have a huge impact on us.
Were there some folks here?
Sure. But it wasn't like
September '04 when there
were thousands here."
Columbia County has a
2 percent bed tax, which
Campbell explained was
3 percent up until 1994.
"We're the only county in
the state that has rolled back
its bed tax," Campbell said.
"I think there is a strong
likelihood we'll see an
increase soon."
Campbell said the
Columbia County County
Commission must vote to
raise the tourist development
tax. The commissioners can
raise it to five cents; if they
wanted to raise it to a sixth
cent, it would take approval
b, the f rluI ila Legislature.

LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS & HOME SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2006


Preparations continue



for Home and Patio Show


By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter. corn
The Third Annual Lake City
Home and Patio Show will
take place this Saturday and
Sunday at the Columbia
County Fairgrounds.
Presented by the Rotary
Club of Lake City Downtown
and sponsored by the Lake
City Reporter, as well as
SunState Federal Credit
Union and Mix 94.3. The
show will take place from
9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday
and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on
Sunday.
"This is our largest
fundraiser of the year for
rotary and the money
received is given back to the
community, in community
projects and activities," said
Debbie Myles, president of
Rotary Club of Lake City
Downtown.
Myles said the rotary club
gives to CARC, Dream
Machine, Lake City
Community College, the
REACH Program and
Catholic Charities, among
others.
The Lake City Home and
Patio Show showcases numer-
ous local and state businesses
that can help people get ready
to move into their new home.

LAKE CITY REPORTER FILE
The Third Annual Lake City Home and Patio Show will take place this Saturday and Sunday at the


Columbia County Fairgrounds.
"Right now, we're sitting at
more than 60 vendors," Myles
said. 'They are mostly from
the local area, but we also
have some from Gainesville
and Ocala."
Myles said the businesses
are showcasing everything
that deals with homes, from
the ground up.
"Septic systems, interior


decorators, construction com-
panies, real estate companies,
mortgage brokers; they will
all be there to give people
what they can for their new
home, or help them find their
new home," Myles said.
During the two-day event,
how-to demonstrations will be
performed.
Debbie Dees 'has


spearheaded the show this
year and is this head chairper-
son for this year's committee.
"(The show) just gets big-
ger and better every year,"
Myles said. 'The first year, we
had one building behind the
flea market. Last year and this
year, we're using outside
space and two buildings and
we're just about maxed out."


Praise that pays and

praise that doesn't


A growing trend among job
seekers is to include in the
cover letter quotes from pro-
fessional contacts attesting to
one's abilities. For example, a
sample testimonial might be
from a former supervisor and
read, "John is one of the hard-
est-working professionals I
know. He always exceeds
expectations and produces
superior results." In addition
to validating your skills, such
a statement serves as a good
platform from which you can
describe your experience and
achievements in greater
detail. To be effective, howev-
er, the quote must be
unequivocally positive and
clearly understood.
COVER LETTER: "'Oh,
James. He is good.'"
Not much of an
endorsement.
Another candidate quoted
a former professor who said,
'That was a brilliant solution."
Unfortunately, the job seeker
failed to explain what
problem was solved or his
role in resolving the situation.
Clarity also is important
when crafting the objective
section of your resume. This
one-to-two-sentence state-
ment should be specific to
each job posting and explain
why you chose to apply for
the position. A strong objec-
tive might read, "An entry-
level editorial position at a
magazine that would allow


RESUMANIA

me an opportunity to apply
my background in English
and my three years'
experience as editor of my
college newspaper."
Read on for examples of
what not to do:
"OBJECTIVE: I like to at
least try to show that I am
willing to do what it takes to
do my job right the first time."
We'll give you an "A" for
effort.
"OBJECTIVE: Seeking a
firm to guarantee me
advancement."
In life, there are no
guarantees.
"OBJECTIVE: Travel
through Europe, run with the
bulls, lifeguard at a California
beach."
Is work a part of the
picture?

Jameson Inn
receives award
Jameson Inn has received
the Marketing Award for
Excellence by the Robinson
College of Business at
Georgia State University, in
association with the Atlanta
Business Chronicle.
The regional hotel chain
was awarded Grand Winner
status by the members of the
Georgia State University


Marketing RoundTable,
which consists of business
leaders and marketing
experts from some of the
area's largest and most
recognized corporations
including BellSouth Corp.,
Cingular Wireless, Coca-Cola
and UPS.
"It's an honor to be
recognized for this award,
especially since we were
competing with some of the
world's greatest brands," said
Tom Kitchin. CEO of
..Jameson Inns. "This program
aligns our customers with
our product. By developing
our Stock Awards Program,
we have identified a way to
give our customers a tangible
reward that has no blackout
dates or availability issues."
The award was based on
the launch of the company's
innovative customer loyalty
program, Jameson Stock
Awards, which awards guests
of the hotel chain with shares
of Jameson common stock.
The program has been
very popular with travelers to
the Lake City community,
says Jenile McGee of the
285 SW Commerce Blvd.
location.
"Our stock award program
has been very well received
by business travelers and
* others looking for a clean,
comfortable place to stay at a
great value. It is a different
kind of loyalty program, and I
think that's what makes it so
appealing," McGee said.


, This was the 14th annual
presentation of the MAX
Awards and Jameson was
among eight finalists selected
from 35 entries.
The award winners were
announced Feb. 17. at a
breakfast held at the

BED TAX: Money rolls in


Continued From Page 1C,
"There was some discus-
sion early last year about
adding a penny for sports
marketing and the Tourist
Development Council has
always taken the stand that
at some point in time they
will add an additional two
cents to cover the opera-
tional costs of a civic center,"
Campbell said.
Although 2005 was a big
year for the bed tax,
Campbell doesn't think 2006


will see the same increase
that 2005 had. ,
"I would say there are
good things on the horizon,"
Campbell said. "The new
Hampton Inn and Suites is
set to open in early April and
that raises the bar on the
quality of hotels in the coun-
ty.
"I think we'll see around
half of the 16 percent for
2006; 16 percent was a pretty
impressive number."

FROM THE GARDEN


Don Goode



Plant a

citrus


tree for


taste of


Florida

Living in Florida,
when I think of
fresh fruit, I think
of citrus.
According to Billy
and Mike Barwald with the
Flying Dragon Citrus
Nursery in Jacksonville,
there used to be a thriving
citrus industry in northeast
Florida. Climate conditions
and land prices drove the
commercial citrus industry
further south. For the .
homeowner, however, there
are several types of citrus
that grow well in our area.
Some of these include
Satsumas, Kumquats,
Calamondins, and Meyer
Lemons.
Trees grafted on cold
hardy rootstocks such as
Flying Dragon and Swindel
are recommended. Some
trees, however, such as the
Kumquats and Meyer
Lemon will grow well on
their own roots.
Some form of cold
protection may be needed
for more tender citrus
varieties on the coldest
nights of winter. A thick pile
of mulch or a mound of soil
around the trunk can
protect the lower trunk
where the desirable variety
was grafted onto the
rootstock. If the top dies
from the cold, at least the
tree might re-sprout from
the graft and recover over
the years to come. You can'
also wrap the trunk with
foam insulation sold in
hardware stores as a pipe
wrap. Try stringing
Christmas lights on the tree
and covering the tree with a
blanket to hold in the
warmth from the lights. The
neighbors will think you are
festive! Cold sensitive citrus
trees may be planted next to
a building for added cold
protection.
Running a sprinkler
on the tree is not
recommended, even though
this has been done in
commercial orchards. For
freezing water to provide
protection, the water must
not be turned off until it
has completely thawed
whenever the weather
warms up enough to do so.
Also, the weight of the
freezing water can cause the
tree limbs to break.
Citrus can have several
pest problems. Leaf miners
are small insects that tunnel
within the leaf and can cause
some leaves to fall off. Clean
up these fallen leaves and
pick off any you see with
tunnels and destroy them or
throw them away.
Watch for scale insects on
your citrus trees. These
little insects suck juices
from the stems and weaken
the tree. In their adult stage,
they settle down and stick
themselves to the limbs. A
onriiculrurail oil spray can be
used to control scales and a

Caring for injured
squirrels helps bring
therapy to local woman.

By LINDSAY DOWNEY
Idowney@lakecityreporter. com
T o some people, squirrels
are just furry, little
rodents that climb trees
in the backyard. To
Debra Arciero, squirrels
not only are adorable, they're part of
the family. They comfort her when
she's had a long day at work and
help her forget about the pain she
faces with lupus, a chronic
inflammatory disease. They curl up
with her in bed, perform tricks and
ride with her in the car.
In the last 10 years, Debra has
cared for and released about
75 injured squirrels back into the
wild. She currently has two Squirrels
that live in a cage in her living room.
She doesn't have much contact with
these squirrels because after they
have recuperated and the weather is
warm enough, she will release them
into their natural habitat.
'The ones that I know I'm going to
release, I do not handle," Debra says.
"If you handle them and handle
them, they become dependent on
you. It's best to have limited contact
with a wild animal you know has to
survive on its own."

see if the squirrel's mother would
come back for her. After she didn't,
Red brought her home to her new
mother Debra.
"Somebody had cut a tree down
and they didn't know there was a
nest in there," Debra says. 'They
were going to put her to sleep b.ut
my heart wouldn't let me. She
survived."
Inside Debra's living room are five
large cages stacked on top of each
other. One cage holds the family's
pet cockatiels, Spike and Seymour.
Nut shells litter the floors of the
other four cages, where the squirrels
nibble on nuts, their flat, fluffy tails in
the air.
Sissy runs around the floor, hops
onto the couch and back onto the
floor near the family's dog, Toby.
Debra scoops the squirrel up and
pets her, calming her
down. 'I "She's li

Debra, her three sons say.
After Debra received Daisy and
nursed her back to health, she
released her into the wild, but Daisy
kept coming back to the home.
"Usually when you let them go
they'll hang around for awhile and
you'll have to feed them until they
get used to feeding on their own,"
Debra says, adding that newly

released squirrels usually will come
back to the house for weeks, but
eventually they forget and stay in the
wilderness. But when Daisy refused
to stay away, Debra took her back in.
"She was skin and bones when she
came back home;" Debra says.
"When I opened up the door, she ran
straight to her cage., went into her "
little coffee can and stayed there for
three days. She wa3 glad to be
home."
After reuniting with Daisy, Debra
realized the squirrel had deformed
teeth and couldn't crack nuts on her
own, which made her lose weight in
the wild. Daisy now has earned the
nickname "Tater" for her love of
potatoes.

says. "We had a thing of French fries

Governor's Summer Program


brings CSI to L


By DR. CHERYL BOICE
Special to the Reporter
Lake City Community
College has been awarded
a Florida Department of
Education Governor's
Summer Program grant for
a second consecutive year.
This year's Governor's Summer
Program is a special six-week
"minimester" titled Crime Scene
Investigation: The Science of
Forensic Inquiry. Referred to by the
program creators as "CSI: Lake City,"
this program will focus on criminal
investigation and the mysteries of
death and deception.
The "CSI" television series has
taken the world by storm, winning
fans among many who have never
thought of themselves as scientists.
Building on this phenomenon, the
CSI: Lake City program has been
designed to submerse students in the
academic skills of scientific inquiry
and critical analysis. These important
skills give greater meaning to the
thrill of DNA and fingerprints, trace
evidence and profiling.
The CSI: Lake City program will be
delivered in cooperation with the
school districts of Baker, Columbia,
Dixie, Gilchrist, and Union counties
and serve approximately 10 students
from each county. It will run from
June 12-July 26, with classes
scheduled each morning from
10 a.m.-11:55 a.m. and each afternoon
from 1 p.m. to 3:55 p.m., Monday-
Thursday. Students will work in
teams, exploring the applications of
advanced biology and forensic
science within the field of criminal
investigation. Friday will be
reserved for field trips, which will
include a variety of local and state
crime labs, as well as regional
academic research facilities.
CSI: Lake City students will study
the specifics of


biological
processes, the
psyche of the
criminal mind, ..
evidentiary .
collection .
procedures, and the ."
skills of technical Boice
and scientific evi-
dence processing. These college-
credit courses have been customized
to compliment one
another and ensure that students
encounter a coherent integration of
biology and forensics. For example,
the week that students learn about
genetics in biology, they will be
studying DNA evidence in criminal
forensics. Scientific methods,
microscopy, and biological chemistry
will precede collection of crime scene
evidence; ensuring students have the
needed skill foundation for critical
inquiry.
CSI: Lake City students will learn
how to video and photo-document
crime scenes, interpret ballistics
evidence, analyze trace evidence for
DNA, and interpret tool mark
evidence. They will utilize
sophisticated scientific equipment;
visit "virtual crime scenes," online
and in actual crime labs; and work in
teams to solve complex problems that
rely on meticulous observation and
analysis of scientific evidence.
Students will be allowed the time to
explore and manipulate ideas and
concepts within peer groups and on
their own, exploring the "real world"
implications of biological, physical,
and ,social sciences.
This blending of biology and
forensics at Lake City Community
College draws on years of successful
education for a large portion of the
state's law enforcement workforce.
With ever increasing Homeland
Security demands, a state-of-the-art
understanding of law enforcement
and scientific inquiry has taken on


ake City

immeasurable significance. Lake City
Community College has developed
strong partnerships with the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
(FDLE) and local outstanding
criminal investigation professionals.
Students will be accompanied during
all crime scene processing exercises
by an experienced law enforcement
officer. These investigation
professionals will serve as coaches
and mentors for the learning process.
During the final week, CSI: Lake
City students will participate in a
competitive team analysis of criminal
evidence. Each of the teams will
encounter their own mock "crime
scene" and will be required to
thoroughly observe, collect,
document, and process the evidence.
The teams will then analyze the
evidence, prepare technical reports
and presentations, and produce a
clear explanation of how the "crime"
took place.
During the final day of the
program, each team will present the
findings of their investigation, as well
as the team generated "solution" to
the crime. Team presentations will be
graded and competitively judged for
awards and honors. Parents will be
invited, as well as local law
enforcement professionals, field trip
site sponsors, college faculty and
administrators, and local media
representatives. A special invitation
will be extended to Governor Bush to
share in this culmination of the
2006 Governor's Summer Program.
Lake City Community College
places a high priority on preparing
residents for a technologically
sophisticated future. The College's
Math and Science Teacher's (MaST)
program was awarded funding from
the National Science Foundation and
has earned recognition from the Phi
Theta Kappa academic professional
honor society.

LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2006 Page Editor: Joseph DeAngelis, 754-0424

'Red' Arciero around the house.

bed with Debra and Red.
"She's like a little cat or
dog," Debra says. "Some
people think it's weird to have
a cat or dog sleep with you, but
we have a squirrel that sleeps
with us."

Squirrel Rescue
In the spring, female squir-
rels typically give birth to
three or four babies, who are
born nearly blind and sans
fur, according to www.squir-
rel.org. The mother nurses
the squirrels for about
75 days before she teaches
them survival skills. Young
squirrels can be knocked
from the nest because of a
lack of space, tree trimming,
storms or wind. However,
people should take precau-
tions before coming to the aid
of fallen animals.
"They're wild animals and
they'll always be wild ani-
mals," Debra says. "They can
be very vicious and they can
be destructive. They're hard
to tame."
People always should wait
about 24 hours see if the
mother will return to the
injured squirrel, says Vicki
Waldron, licensed wildlife
rehabilitator at Critter Care
Farm.
"Basically, when people
find baby squirrels and the
mother's not around and
they're orphaned they need-
to be handled by someone
who's licensed to do it,"
Waldron says.
S People can call the Florida
Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
for names of local wildlife
rehabilitators, said Karen
Parker, FWC spokeswoman
for the North Central Florida
region. Although it is legal to
capture squirrels, the FWC
doesn't re.:2,mmend it.
S "If you're not scchuuled or
trained in how to take care of
that animal, you may do more
harm than good," Parker
Says.
A 'wildlife permit is
required to transport a squir-
rel, however, and people need
permission before re-releas-
ing the squirrel onto private
property. Squirrels should
never be released on public
property, Parker says.
Professionals will feed
orphaned squirrels a calcium-
rich formula because they're
prone to broken bones and
rickets, Waldron says. They
also should be fed nuts,
berries, tree bark and green,
leafy vegetables.
"It's very important that the
squirrels be put on the proper
formula. They have to be fed
around the clock and it's a lot
of work." Waldron says.
When Debra began caring
for Sissy about four years
ago, .she fed her small
amounts of goat's milk every
two hours. She said properly
caring for injured squirrels
has become a huge part of
her life.
"I believe everything needs
a chance at life," she says.
And in turn, the squirrels
comfort her and make her
forget about the difficulties of
dealing with lupus. When
Debra gets home from work,
Sissy and Daisy seem excited
to see her.
"When I come home from
'work they take the stress off
of me. I go home and take my
little squirrel out and it
makes me forget about the
'day," she says. 'The animals
seem to sense, I guess, that I
hurt and they just give me
comfort. They're really loving
creatures. I think they're
giving me little hugs."

variety of other insects. An
insecticide such as.
Malathion can be used for
other pests as needed
according to label directions.
Diseases such as scab,
melanose, and greasy spot
can attack citrus fruit. A
copper fungicide spray can be
used to prevent these
problems.
We get calls occasionally
from people that want to
sprout the seeds from an
orange or other fruit and try
to grow them. This can be
done, but the fruit from these
seedling trees may not have
the same qualities as the fruit
that produced the seeds.
Trees from seeds often take
several years to bear fruit,
thus delaying your decision
whether to keep the tree or
not.
Fertilize your citrus trees
with a fertilizer labeled for cit-
rus to provide the micronutri-
ents the tree needs. A rule of
'thumb suggested by the
Flying Dragon Citrus
Nursery is to measure the dis-
tancd in feet from the trunk
out to the drip line to give the
radius. Fertilize at one pound
for every foot of radius. Apply
this amount of fertilizer
monthly from late February
through September. Also
water the tree as needed
throughout the year (even in
