Weather halted work on a Maronda Homes construction site Saturday on Mulberry Drive. The proposed
property tax Amendment 1 to be voted on in the Jan. 29 primary has the potential to raise the state's current
homestead exemption from $25,000 to $50,000 on a home that is valued at $75,000 or more.

of the state's

property tax
Amendment 1
has been a difficult task for
many Columbia County
residents, according to
courthouse officials who
scrambled last week fielding
calls and answering questions
as residents began early voting
before the Jan. 29 primary.
"People will not lose their

if this passes," said Columbia
County Property Appraiser
Doyle Crews. "It will remain
there either way, if it passes or
fails. This 3 percent cap was put
in place in the constitution in
1992 and it will stay."
Crews said concern about the
3 percent property tax appraisal

cap is the main thing on the
minds of Columbia County
voters. Another misconception
that centers around one of the
first proposals the Super
Homestead proposal was
struck down by a circuit court
judge in Tallahassee and is not
the proposal on the ballot
"Super Homestead is gone. Jt
was removed by a judge in


Tallahassee," Crews said. "This
is not what you are voting on. It
was, one of the early proposals
and it was struck, down."
Homestead exemption
On the ballot, the proposed
Amendment 1 would increase
the current homestead
exemption from $25,000 to
$50,000.
This means an individual must
own a home that is valued at
$75,000 or more to get the full
$50,000 exemption. If an
individual's home has a just value
of $60,000, the property owner
would get a homestead
exemption of $35,000. A home
with a just value of $70,000 will
receive a $45,000 homestead
exemption.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS


Witnesses say Combs shoved man at club


LOSANGELES
Four eyewitnesses support a
man's assertion that Sean
"Diddy" Combs assaulted him
and his girlfriend at a
post-Oscar party at.a
Hollywood nightclub last year, according
to court papers filed by the plaintiffs
attorney.
Marianna Ruiz, one of the witnesses
deposed by an attorney for Gerard
Rechnitzer, said in papers filed
Wednesday that the rap and fashion
mogul struck Rechnitzer unprovoked.
"I just kind of remember seeing him
go flying, not flying as in like feet off the
. ground, but he went back significantly,"
said Ruiz, who was part of a group at the
club with the Rechnitzer. "I was just in
shock that somebody would ... just kind
of strike somebody out of nowhere."
Another witness, Michael Sherman,
said "all of a sudden, he hit him. And
there was a taxi behind Gerard. Gerard
got knocked into the taxi."
Sherman said Combs then tried to spit
on Ruiz, who was standing nearby.
Rechnitzer seeks-unspecified damages
in the suit filed in Los Angeles Superior
Court last year. He claims the assault
occurred in the early hours of Feb. 25
outside Teddy's at the Roosevelt Hotel.
Attorneys for Combs have called the
suit "completely baseless" and in cpurt
papers filed Wednesday said he is "in no
way legally responsible for what
happened to Rechnitzer."

Horror writer King accepts
that he isn't middle-aged
BANGOR, Maine Best-selling
author Stephen King has turned 60, a
milestone that forces
him to accept that he's
no longer middle-aged.

went to a movie theater, and the woman
asked if I wanted my golden-ager
discount I asked how old you have to be
for that, and she said 65. I said 'Not yet,
dear,"' King, whose birthday was in
September, told the Bangor Daily News.


In a wide-ranging interview, the
longtime supporter of Democratic
candidates said he is backing Illinois
Sen. Barack Obama for president
"We need a big change," King said.
"Its an amazing thing to see the two
frontrunners be a woman and a black
man. Obama has the least baggage of the
two and is willing to try new things. It
wouldn't be business as usual. Also it
would do wonders for us in the world
community to have a black man in the
White House," he said.
Speaking by phone from his
winter home near Sarasota, King
recalled why he began heading
south for the winter.
"In '98, during the ice storm, I
was walking my dog in our
driveway and a chunk of ice
dropped off the mailbox, which
just missed him. That's when we
asked ourselves 'Why are we still
here in the winter?' So we decided

Who was Cromer Shuler?


ave you ever had a
familiar name pop
into your mind out
of a clear blue sky
but you had no
recollection whatsoever who
that person was?
That's what happened to me
when the name Cromer
Shuler came to me about a
month ago.
Try as I might, I could not
remember who Cromer
Shuler was. I only knew it was
a name from the distant past
In a minor way it began to
bug me so I casually asked
around but couldn't find
anybody who had ever heard
the name.
Then, somehow, I happened
to remember that Cromer
Shuler might have been the
name of the Fletcher High
School football field way back
in the 1940s and 1950s. To
confirm this, I phoned
Fletcher High School at
Jacksonville Beach, then the
sports department of the
Florida Times-Union. Alas,
they couldn't help either.
Then I got help from an
unexpected source this past
week. The Times-Union ran
a special article on a
distinguished 77-year old
Jacksonville architect named
William Morgan. The write-up
mentioned that he had lived in
Lake City when he was very
young before moving to
Jacksonville. So, I decided to
call him and ask him about his
memories of Lake City.
He was very cordial but
didn't have many memories of
Lake City. Then, one thing led
to another, and he mentioned
that he had graduated from
Fletcher High School in 1948
- so naturally I asked him
about Cromer Shuler Field.
"Oh, yes," he said, "Coach
Cromer Shuler was my high
school football coach. He was
so beloved that they named
the football field after him -
Cromer Shuler Field.
'Then an unusual thing
happened. Coach Shuler had
to go into military service due
LETTER TO

Defend your right
to bear, arms
To The Editor:
We need to wake up and see
what is taking place in our
country at this time. We have
read of many stories of
innocent victims being
murdered in our schools,
malls, and of all places,
churches, by suicidal maniacs.
Churches that were once a safe
haven and refuge are now open
to being attacked, threatening
our ways and freedoms.
We hear in the news, and
read in the papers, that guns
are killing people. It isn't a
single gun, weapon or
instrument that caused these
horrors to take place. It is the
individuals that have lost their
senses and direction in life.
These individuals cannot blame
anyone or anything for their
problems, or for their actions.

to World War II and, during
his absence, they gave the
football coach's job to Ish
Brant. So, they named the
football field after Coach
Shuler and then didn't re-hire
him as coach when he got
back."
I realize all this is not a big
deal, but it is nice to know
where I remember Cromer
Shuler from and to learn a
little about his life. Ill bet
some of our older former CHS
football players who played on
Cromer Shuler Field will be
glad to learn about him, too.
Fletcher's field is npw
named the Jack Taylor
Stadium after another
successful Fletcher coach.
I knew Coach Taylor so
that will be a name I can
remember!

'The Retcher jinx'
Incidentally, the mention of
Fletcher High School will
remind some of our local
1970s and 1980s CHS football
players of the famous
"Fletcher Jinx."
For 12 years neither CHS
nor Fletcher was able to win
the home game the home
team seemed jinxed! Then on
Nov. 18, 1983, CHS beat
Fletcher at Memorial Stadium
45-0 to end the jinx.
All the CHS players signed
the jinx-ending game ball and
That ball is now displayed in
our School Museum. Some of
those jinx-busting players
were Scott Adams, Virgil
Scippio, Bob Henry, Jay Veal,

doldrums


'The Doldrums Month." Suffering from
the post-holiday blues and hunkering
down in front of the television, ifs tough
to get a rise out of most folks during this
first month of the year.
It's tough, that is, unless you start dealing
with pets. That will get people talking every
time.
Just in case
you haven't
noticed, the
Lake City
Reporter has
had a number
of stories lately
dealing with Michael Leonard
concerns about Phone: (386) 754-0418
pet adoptions, mleonard@lakecityreportercom
the picking up
of strays, euthanizing animals and more. We've
had a number of letters to the editor from
interested parties, and quite a few blogs written
by readers to our www.lakecityreportercom Web
site about the subject.
People become very attached to their pets
and in some cases, treat them almost in the
same regard as human family members. These
attachments may be even stronger during the
winter months, when cold and wet weather
often lead owners to spend more time with their
pets indoors. Having a cat purring in your lap or
dog napping at your feet on a chilly, wet night
can be a comfort, indeed.
The Lake City Reporter produced its first-ever
Pet Calendar last month and was overwhelmed
with the number of photos readers submitted
for use. They say people with pets are generally
happier and better adjusted than those without
If that's so, then we have a pretty sane populace
around Columbia County :
Bears don't match the definition of animal
pets, but the stuffed, furry kind does fit the bill
as lovable, squeezable substitutes for the real
thing. The kids and staff at Summers
Elementary know the feel-good value of a
huggable Teddy Bear, so they've begun a Bears
of Love program that will provide stuffed bears
to local children who have been traumatized or
involvedin a tragic situation.
What a great, homegrown idea this is. It
speaks volumes about the quality of the
children, teachers and administrators we have
in our area schools.
The school is collecting donations of $1 or
more through Feb. 1 to purchase the bears.
To give, mail or drop your contribution off at
Summers Elementary School, 1388 SW
McFarlane Ave., Lake City.
I'll bet the mountain climbers who got lost
on Oregon's Mt. Hood last week would have
liked a Bears of Love teddy to hug when they
were trying to stay warm in a snow cave
before being rescued. Its a good thing for
them they became lost in the winter, when the
real grizzly bears of that area are in
hibernation, rather than the summer.
Group of climbers was also stranded on
Mt Hood last winter about this same time,
creating a media stir before they were finally
found. Don't these people get it? Perhaps in the
interest of safety and saving taxpayers' rescue
service dollars, the mountain should be shut
down during certain months of the year.
Speaking of being stuck indoors with nothing
to do in the winter time, there was an
interesting story in Wednesday's Lake City
Reporter noting that the U.S. fertility rate is at
its highest level in 45 years. We are apparently
in a baby boomlet.
What piqued my interest about this
Associated Press story wasthe negative
reasoning "experts" applied to explain the up
tick in toddlers. It was the usual excuse litany of
declining contraceptive use, limited access to
abortion services, poor education and poverty.
The one rational voice belonged to Nan
Marie Astone, a professor from Johns Hopkins
University, who explained: "Americans like
children."
You go, Nan Marie.

Florida's presidential primary is just over one
week away, and the Sunshine State could play a
pivotal role in determining the nominees for
each party, despite the national Democratic
Party's plan to strip Florida's delegates for
moving the state's primary date. A recent
www.lakecityreportercom poll asked users of the
Web site whether they believe the next
president will be a Republican or Democrat.
Readers were just about evenly split, with
52 percent predicting the White House will
remain in Republican hands, and 48 predicting
a change to the Democrats.: It's going to be an

AMENDMENT: Save Our Homes is secure
Continued From Page 1A


home in Columbia County will
see an overall savings of about
$260 a year," Crews said.
If passed, the $50,000 home-
stead exemption is retroactive
to Jan. 1, 2008, so it will be in
effect immediately.

Non-homestead property
The proposal also limits
assessment increases for spec-
ified non-homestead property
at 10 percent. Crews said in
Columbia County, the average
increase in non-homestead
property is about 5 percent, so
this may not have an impact
locally if the measure passes.
Statewide, school revenue
obtained from property taxes
will not be reduced, so only
the portion of property taxes
collected by county govern-
ment will be reduced if the sys-
tem is overhauled through the
referendum.

Portability
The proposal allows for a fea-
ture new to the property tax
structure in Florida. The
Amendment 1 proposal allows
homeowners who sell their
home to take the difference
between the "just value" of their
home and the "assessed value"
with them to their new resi-
dence. The amount is known as
"portability." It is also some-
times referred to as the "Save
Our Homes difference."
The 'portability is deducted
from the new home's purchase
price, then the $50,000 home-
stead exemption is applied,
as well.
Crews said an example of
this would be if a home has a
just value of $185,000 but an,
assessed value of $100,000, the
portability of the home would
be $85,000 that could be taken
to the next home purchase.
If this resident bought a
new home for $285,000, the
$85,000 in portability would be
deducted from the purchase
price, to bring the taxable price
to $200,000. Then, the new

of the school's spelling bee
finals. The student also has to
be younger than 16 years old
on or before the date of the
national ,finals which take
place May 28-29.
The winner of the Columbia
County Spelling Bee will get a
plaque and move on to the
next round of competition at
the regional spelling bee in
Jacksonville on Feb.' 23. Every
student participating in the
countywide spelling bee will
get a certificate. -
Conner said the Columbia
School District has held the
countywide spelling bee for
more than 20 years and its an
important event for the students.
"Children need every oppor-
tunity and many varied oppor-
tunities to be successful
at something," she said.
"Language/verbal talent like
this is something that some-
one whose good in the verbal
area can excel at. Children
need to be able to practice
competition and learn not only
to be good winners, but to be
good losers and develop that
sense of perseverance. That
makes successful adults when
they develop that attitude."

$50,000 homestead exemption
would be deducted from this
taxable price and taxes would
be assessed on the property for
$150,000, Crews said.
If the portability amount is
greater than the purchase price
of the new home, a state-set for-
mula is used by the county
property appraiser to assess
property values and set the tax-
able amount It will not mean
the homeowner is exempt from
paying property taxes. Also,
$500,000 is the maximum
amount of portability allowed
under the amendment
Critics of the portability por-
tion of the amendment point
out that school districts across
the state cannot assess and
collect property taxes on the
portability amounts the way
the amendment is proposed,
so this will be lost revenue for
schools, Crews said.
Crews said to make up short-
falls, most taxing authorities in
Florida counties most likely
would consider raising millage
rates to make up shortfalls.
"The consequences (of pass-
ing Amendment 1) are schools
and taxing, authorities are
going to lose money," said Jeff
Hampton, Columbia County
senior property appraiser.
"The taxing authorities are
going to hurt"

Tangible personal property
The assessments for tangible
personal property, which is
property owned within a small


business, such as office equip-
ment and furniture and opera-
tional equipment, or other qual-
ifying personal property, will
feature a $25,000 exemption.
Crews said the first $25,000
will be exempted on all tangible
personal property except mobile
homes that are classified as
tangible personal property.
Businesses with tangible per-
sonal property assets will be
required to file an initial return
to qualify. Thereafter the
requirement to file an annual
return is waived unless the value
of their assets exceeds $25,000.
Schools also are exempt on
the tangible personal property
assessment and about 70 per-
cent of small businesses in
Columbia County have
$25,000 or less in tangible per-
sonal property, so these will be
tax exempt if the amendment
passes, Crews said.
'That's about $175,000 in tax
revenue that will be removed
from our books," Crews said.

Complex issue
Crews said overall, the
Amendment 1 proposal was one
of the most complex the state
has ever proposed to voters.
'We're not telling people how
to vote or encouraging them
one way or the other, but we
want to make sure they have all
the information they need to
understand the proposal," he
said. "Its a very complex issue
and they need to understand it
before they go'vote."

ECONOMY: Has potential to rebound


Continued From Page 1A

Amendment 1 on the upcoming
ballot is the issue of portability.
This amendment proposes that
homeowners who sell their
homes are able to take the dif-
ference between the "just
value" of their home and the
"assessed value" with them to a
new residence within the state.
While this would keep new-
comers to the county from pay-
ing the full taxes of those
already living here, this
amendment may encourage
some South Florida homeown-
ers to take a chance on selling
their home and again ventur-
ing north and jump-start the
housing market
."What I think it will do is get
some people who are sitting on
the fence and give them the
motivation to make the jump,"
Gherna said. "We're advertising
in some publications in South
Florida touting this area and'
we're hoping that if this amend-
ment passes and some of those
people are able to sell their
homes, they'll come up here.


"We're just not getting that
influx of people that we (previ-
ously) did," Gherna said. "It
isn't that people in South
Florida aren't interested now.
Realtors tell us that they're get-
ting the calls, but the people are
unable to sell their homes.
Financing is tight right now."
If people are able to sell their
houses, the tax savings could
be a huge draw, Gherna said.
The portability is deducted
from the new home's purchase
in addition to the savings from
the homestead exemption.
For example, if a person sells
a house for $400,000 in South
Florida, but the assessed value
is only $300,000, that means the
home owner has $100,000 to
add toward the purchase price
of a new home. So, if the person
buys a home in Columbia
County for $250,000, they will
only pay taxes on $150,000 of
that, before the homestead
exemption is deducted.
The homeowner won't be
exempt from paying taxes, but


the taxes they are required to
pay could be significantly less
than what they would pay in
the southern part of the state
with higher-priced houses.
Because of the potential sav-
ings, the housing economy
could see a much-needed
bump. Ifs unlikely, though, to
see a housing boom like several
years ago.
"I think what happened a cou-
ple of years ago was an anomaly,"
Gherna said. "A market can't
sustain that sort of appreciation.
We're in a correction period right
now. Median prices here have
only fallen about 5 percent, but
it's just that people are buying
lower-priced homes rather than
higher-priced homes."
Still, people have to sell their
homes first, and that could be
problematic.
'We're hoping this will have a
positive effect and I think it will,"
Gherna said. "Its just a matter
of getting people to be able to
sell their house and then get the
buyers to take the plunge."

Nurturing a seed


Lady Tigers close
district season with
victory over Forest.
By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia High's girls
basketball team took a step up
in the district seeding process
with a 43-35 home win over
Forest High on Saturday.
The Lady Tigers did not
play after the Christmas break
until Jan. 15 and their first two
games were District 4-5A
matchups on the road both';
losses.
Forest (12-10), which beat
CHS when the teams met in
Ocala, came to Lake City with
the same 5-6 district record as
Columbia. Columbia's win
insures a higher tournament
seed than the Wildcats.
The teams were evenly
matched and with Forest play-
ing tough man-to-man defense
and Columbia in a tight zone,
it was midway through the
first quarter before the, first
points were put on the board.
Tasheona Harris scored at
4:16 and made a desperation
3-pointer off the glass in the
closing seconds to give
Columbia an 11-5 lead.
The Wildcats fought back
and it took another buzzer-
beater trey,, this time by
Shaniqua Henry, at the end of
the second quarter to give
Columbia a 20-19 halftime
lead.
Sharmayne Edwards, held
to two points in the first half,
got untracked and scored nine
in the third quarter as
Columbia built a 37-28 lead.
Despite missing 10 of 13 free
throws in the game, the Lady
Tigers' defense did the job in
CHS continued on 3B

St. Petersburg team that
improved to 17-1. The Tigers
led 30-26 at the end of a first-
quarter score-fest.
Coach Steve Smithy filled in
for head coach Trey Hosford
and said the Spartans are a lot
better than No. 10.
'They moved the ball well,
passed well and ran the floor
well," Smithy said. "They are
well-coached and deep.'When
they bring guys in, their level
of play did not fall off.
"Our guys played really
hard and we shot the.ball well
from the perimeter."
The Tigers poured in 13
3-pointers, including six from
Kenny Williams who led all
scorers with 33 points.
Cameron Reynolds hit five
treys and scored 17 points and
Dont'ae Davis scored 10 points
with two 3s. Joe Bradshaw
scored six points, while Ryan
'Bell and Julio Viens each
scored two and Shavar
Williams hit a free throw
before hurting his knee and
missing all of the second half.

the fourth quarter.,
"It is nice to win our last dis-
trict game," CHS head coach
Horace Jefferson said. "We did
a good job of protecting the
ball and with our movement,
but we missed a lot of easy
shots early.
"Elancia (Jernigan) came in
and gave us some big baskets
at crucial times. Deandrea
(Edwards) played a heck of a
game and Kaylyn (Varnum)
and Liz (Coker) played a little
stronger inside. Tasheona
made some excellent reads on
offense."
Sharmayne Edwards (seven
rebounds) and Harris (five
rebounds, four assists) led
Columbia with 11 points
apiece.
Deandrea Edwards scored
six points and had 11 rebounds.
Varnum and Jernigan both
scored four points. Henry had
her 3-pointer and Alexis
McCray and Coker each
scored two.

"Jerry, spending more time
with XYZ client would really
help my wife spend more on
the furniture for our new
house." Statements like this
do not really convey the mes-
sage and only obscure the
meaning. After a while, no
one took any of this boss' cor-
rections seriously as we could
never tell if he was being
sincere or just joking around.
One tip for improving your
communications is to watch
your pace. I speak very rapid-
ly, which is not always a good
thing. People assume that
those who speak rapidly are
not calm. Frequently, this
sends a danger signal to the
listener, causing them to lis-
ten with much caution. This
can potentially interfere with
the message.
If I want my messages to
be understood, I have to work
on slowing down my speech.
Sometimes I just experiment
with the pace and see how
folks respond. If I see an audi-
ence or a staff member nod-
ding their head, it is a pretty
good indication that the pace
is right, and that they are
getting the message.
I have become a big fan
of Cesar Millan, the Dog
Whisperer (with three dogs, I
need all the help I can get),
which airs on the National
Geographic channel. One of
the things that he repeatedly
says about dogs is that any
message must be sent when
both the trainer and the dog
are in a very calm place.
Even with dogs, we must
communicate effectively.
Another thing to remember
about communications is that
emotions can either help or
hinder the message. If the
emotions are congruent with
the message, the message
will be understood much bet-
ter. However, you run into
trouble when the message
and the emotions expressed
through body language are
not in sync.
Normally, messages sent


with incongruent emotions
are either completely misun-
derstood or not heard at all.
For instance, I have seen
managers complement staff
members while frowning and
standing with very rigid pos-
ture. Instead of a comple-
ment, a message of fear is
received.
In a like manner, you just
cannot smile while telling an
employee that there is a prob-
lem with their behavior. The
point is to make sure that
your message and emotions
are congruent. One of the
best ways to evaluate this is
to practice in front of a mirror
or have someone else evalu-
ate your communications.
Normally, I have found that
these issues are easy to cor-
rect once the speaker is
aware of and understands the
problem.
The final tip is to vary your
volume and pitch. I cannot
tell you how many times.at
Georgia Tech (yep, I am a
Rambling Wreck) I took
some course that I saw little
value in (like thermal dynam-
ics) where the professor
spoke in a flat monotone. I
fought every day to stay
awake in class. If the profes-
sor had just varied his inflec-
tion or his volume every so
often, the course would have
been much better.
Sometimes when I am giv-
ing a speech, I slightly reduce
the volume of my voice just to
force people to try harder to
listen to me. Just this little
change has made such a dif-
ference in the quality of my
talks.
With regard to your
communications, you must
ensure that your pace, body
language and pitch are set to
optimize the reception of the
message.
You can do this.

Dr. Jerry Osteryoung is
executive director of the Jim
Moran Institute for Global
Entrepreneurship.


Recycles

used cars
Continued From Page 1C

founded in 1999 by a $2.6 bil-
lion, Oregon-based metal recy-
cling company, founded in 1906.
"Greenleaf employs about
40 people with a total annual
salary of about $1.5 million,"
Site Manager Robert Rutledge
said. "It was originally started
by Ford Motor Company but
was subsequently bought by
Schnitzer Steel, and they are big
into environmentally-friendly
recycling practices."
Greenleaf is the antithesis of
a typical junk yard piled high
with-wrecked and leaking cars,
that can spill thousands of gal-
lons of polluting liquids that
may find its way into our
ground water.
Greenleaf is just one of many
industries that have found
going "green" is becoming
more and more profitable, and
recycled vehicle parts are an
especially big part of this trend.
"Every vehicle that comes
into Greenleaf is entered into the
inventory management system,"
Rutledge said. "All fluids are
drained and captured, and expe-
rienced and trained technicians
dismantle the vehicle."
Rutledge explained that
although most of the vehicles
that come through its doors are
wrecked and salvaged older
models, they also get quite a
few 2008 models directly from
manufacturers that are still in
pretty good shape.
'The manufacturer uses a
number of its brand-new vehi-
cles for testing," Rutledge
explained. "They may test the
door hinges by slamming the
door thousands of times and the
vehicle is no longer salable."
Greenleaf buys the vehicle
and then tears it apart and recy-
cles only the parts that weren't
involved in the testing.
New vehicles from the manu-
facturer account for about 5 per-
cent of Greenleaf's recycling
business, Rutledge explained.


JASON MATTHEW WALKERILake City Reporter
Keith Caudill, the business development representative of
Greenleaf Auto Recyclers of Lake City, stands in front of an E-Z
Auto Crusher which has crushed a stack of about 10 cars.
Greenleaf recycles wrecked and salvaged cars, dismantling 2,430
vehicles in 2007.


"Most of our business is from
salvaged vehicles that some-
body has wrecked. We pur-
chase them from an insurance
auction based on supply and
demand," Rutledge said.
"We bring the vehicle back to
Greenleaf, process it, and
test the parts to see what is
recyclable.
"Anything on that vehicle
that has value and is recyclable
is pulled off, tested and put on
our shelf, ready for someone to
purchase, wholesale or retail,"
he said.
The parts aren't just thrown
together on a shelf all greasy
and filthy, but each part is
cleaned, inspected and tested
before it is placed on the shelf
for sale and in most cases,
with a six month no-questions
warranty.
"Most people would envision
a typical salvage yard as a
"Sanford & Son" operation, but
we are actually a state-of-the-art
recycling facility, from the
showroom in the front to the
back of our 41-acre yard,"
Rutledge said.
The entire operation is inven-
toried and tracked by computer
so that the smallest part can be
found by a salesman at any
time.
"All these parts that we
pull off of the vehicles are test-
ed by our quality control


department," Business Devel-
opment representative Keith
Caudill said. "We have strict
guidelines and tolerances that
must be adhered to before we
allow our parts to be resold.
"We are very confident in the
quality of the parts that we
provide to our customers."
All salvageable parts are bar-
coded by the vehicle identifica-
tion number (VIN), stock num-
ber, year, make and model, then
uploaded into the computer-
ized inventory system and
warehoused.
The organization and sheer
size of the warehouse is stag-
gering. Its shelves are lined
with hundreds of engines and
transmissions. Rows of alterna-
tors swing from hooks and all
are guaranteed to work.
'We currently have an inven-
tory of about 500 truck, car and,
SUV motors and about 700
transmissions," Rutledge said.
"When people walk in here,
they are amazed at our organi-
zation, and our system is set up
so that we have complete com-
puter access to any one of our
17 locations throughout the
United States," Rutledge said.
"We can see their inventory
at any time, so if a store has
about $5 million worth of inven-
tory, we are actually seeing
17 times that amount"
The location of each part is


mapped so that a salesman can
walk directly to the part they
see listed as in-stock on the
computerized inventory.
If the system is. not tight
enough already, Rutledge said
that Greenleaf performs a
monthly inventory and spot-
check audit to make sure that
the part they are seeing on the
computer is actually in its place
and available.
Nothing is left to chance at
Greenleaf.
'Lake City is the main ship-
ping hub for the Southeast
Region, and our regional loca-
tions are in Lauderdale Lakes,
Crestview, Tampa and Monroe,
Ga.," Caudill said. 'The company
has stores as far north as
Leominster, Mass., and west to
Chandler, Ariz., with more stores
in Texas, Nevada, Virginia,
North Carolina and Oklahoma."
Customers who purchase
Greenleaf's recycled parts can
expect to save, on average,
about 75 percent of the cost of a
new part, but there are many
other benefits to using recycled
parts, in addition to saving
money.
"It keeps the recycled parts
out of our landfills and saves the
manufacturer from having to
produce more product from
raw materials," Rutledge said.
"Plus, the customer is get-
ting a genuine, first edition,
original equipment manufactur-
er (OEM) part, which means
it's the part made for that car
when it was produced, so it will
fit perfectly."
If not for recycled parts, the
only other choice may be an
after-market part made in
China or elsewhere, Rutledge
explained.
"We sell retail to walk-in cus-
tomers and Internet customers.
We also sell wholesale to
dealerships, local body and
mechanic shops," Rutledge
said.
'Within our region we can
have a part here the next day,"
Caudill said. "If it's outside our
region, it may take three days;
but even if one of our Greenleaf
stores doesn't have it, we can
find it
"Greenleaf is a one-stop shop
for recycled vehicle parts."

Watermelon Park woman tells

of her struggle with cancer, faith


By JOHNNA PINHOLSTER
jpinholster@lakecityreporter.com
WATERMELON PARK
Pam Cribbs believes in the power of
prayer. Last September, the
47-year-old mother of two was
diagnosed with neuroendocrine
cancer. Instead of sinking into
depression, Cribbs pulled herself up by the
bootstraps and decided to keep on living and let
God handle the hard stuff.
"Throughout all of this I have had peace, I
haven't worried about it," Cribbs said. "I wasn't
in control, God
knew me
before


I was born, he knew this was going to happen."
Two days before a camping trip in Stone
Mountain, Ga., Cribbs decided to go to the'
doctor to check out some minor stomach pain
she had been having.
"I didn't think it was a big deal. I thought
maybe I had a hernia or an ulcer," Cribbs said.
"Then the doctor started feeling my abdomen
and said my liver was enlarged."
By the end of the day, Cribbs was at Lake
City Medical Center getting a Computerized
tomography (CT) scan on her abdomen. The
next day, Cribbs went back to the doctor who
told her she had a mass on her pancreas and
several on her liver.
She was then referred to a digestive disease
specialist.
"I didn't even want to think it was bad. They
didn't say it was cancer," Cribbs said.
The digestive disease specialist was a
little more nervous about the spots on
Cribbs' liver.
"He said the spots were innumerable
and innumerable is not a good word,"
Cribbs said.
The specialist suggested a biopsy and
after the findings were observed by
several pathologists and oncologists,
Cribbs was diagnosed with stage four
pancreatic cancer.
The doctors told Cribbs the cancer was
as bad as it gets.
'The doctors said I needed a miracle,"
she said.
Asking the doctors how long she would
live was never a question posed by Cribbs.
For her, the doctors have no control on her
life span, only God does.
"(The doctor) is not God. I believe that He
is sovereign over all of it," Cribbs said.
So Cribbs came up with a plan to keep
herself healthy and keep
life as normal for
her kids as
possible.


"I went out back, sat on the
floor and cried my guts out.
I then sat up, took a deep
breath and told God I was
sorry for doubting that he
was in control, and I accepted
his peace and quit fretting."
Pam Cribbs,
diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer

Healthy eating, a positive attitude and a
passionate belief that God would watch over her
has given Cribbs an upbeat energy even as the
chemotherapy brings her down.
She is bubbly and passionate, discussing her
pre-teen children, D.J. and Callie, their artwork
and homeschool lessons and the power of faith.
The family are members of Hopeful Baptist
Church. Cribbs' father is a preacher in
Tennessee. Without her faith, Cribbs said she
would have probably fallen into a deep despair
after the diagnosis.
"A lot of church family knew about it and they
got prayer groups together to pray," Cribbs said.
"A lot of people still are."
The thought that so many people have her
health and family in their hearts and minds
moves Cribbs to tears, especially since she has
forgone praying for herself and has remained
focused on her family.
"All throughout this I haven't felt like praying
for myself," Cribbs said. "Everyone else has
interceded for me and God has honored that."
Cribbs said that when she prays, she prays
for her husband and children and that they will
have the strength to carry on and that God
would comfort them if something did happen to
her.
As Cribbs prepared herself for an uphill battle
another less threatening but still dangerous
diagnosis came through. Doctors had ruled out
stage four pancreatic cancer, and Cribbs
was diagnosed with neuroendocrine
CANCER

on 8D


Pam Cribbs, 47,
was diagnosed on
Sept. 17, 2007, with
stage four pancreatic
cancer with innumerable
masses on her liver. The
diagnosis was discovered to
actually be neuroendocrine cancer,
but later scans have shown that she is
almost cured, except for a few legions
on her liver.

SAGE school can put you on road to success


By PETER GRAY
Lake City Community College
associate professor of mathematics
Charles Williams is
a busy man. He
has things to do,
places to go. So
when this veteran
trucker took time out to
answer some queries, I had
to act fast. I had to ask only
important questions. Why
should one become a
trucker? Where must one go
to become a trucker? Why
should everyone respect the
trucker? Which are the states
with the prettiest girls?
His answers were detailed
and unhurried. Truckers, he
said, are the lifeline of
America's industry. They
carry gas to our pumps, food
to our stores, cars to our
dealerships. They deliver
medicine to our pharmacies,
equipment to our farms,
tanks to our ports. Without
the trucker, our country
would collapse. Our
wonderful, wondrous,
winsome world would wither
within weeks.
Wow. "What's more,"
continued Williams, "truckers
get great pay. And with fuel
and mileage bonuses, a
trucker can easily grpss twice
the salary of a math
professor. Isn't that neat?" I
nodded. My voice would have
given me away. I collected my
composure and continued to
receive. Truckers, it turns
out, get not just enviable pay.
They receive health
insurance, too. And 401K.


And safety
bonuses.
Suddenly,
trucking
school
seemed
imperative.
GrayBut which
Grayone?
I needed to tap someone
hip with contemporary
schools. Someone clear about
what constitutes a good
school. Someone who knows
a thing or two.
Enter Larry Shaffer, who
knows a thing or two. I met
with him at his generous
invitation, armed with my
hand-held black recorder.
White, if I would clean it.
Shaffer absolutely dripped
information. SAGE trucking
schools, he declared, are the
best. Exhibit A: lifetime
placement assistance. When
it's time for you to apply to a
carrier, SAGE will be on hand
to help. Talk about
aspirin-free relief! Also, there
is SAGE's small class size.
Classes have four or five
students instead of 20 or 25.
And as everyone knows,
teachers like to do it with a
little class. Speaking of
teachers, SAGE's instructors
have millions of miles behind
them, and their testers are all
accredited. And the course
length is generous: five
weeks, rather than the usual
three. Without question,
SAGE students graduate ripe
with knowledge.
There's more. Applause
alert: SAGE is the only
nationwide trucking school


that offers zero observation
time (ZOT). In fact, explained
Shaffer, in choosing a
trucking school, ZOT should
be the chief consideration.
The heart of the matter.
The bread and I-can't-believe-
it's-not-butter issue.
So what is this ZOT, you
ask. Well, to make a short
story long, let's suppose
you're at a non-SAGE
trucking school, and your
syllabus promises 44 hours of
trucking time. Trouble is,
three other students end up
in the truck with you,
dissolving your 44 hours into
a mere 11 hours of hands-on
experience, and 33 hours of
observing the others.
Conversely, with SAGE's
ZOT, you would be the only
student in the truck, and
you'd get your full 44 hours
behind the wheel. No wonder
Editors' Choice has rated
SAGE the No. 1 trucking
school in America.
And the SAGE school at
Lake City Community
College (LCCC) has
additional allure, observed
Shaffer. For example, its
rural location affords
traffic-free practice, everyday
all day. What's more, vacant
dorms are waiting for you
right next to the trucking
school. Jump out of bed, land
in your class. Then there are
all those recruiters that
invade the campus to court
the students. Note, KBT
Trucking, TNT Transport,
and TDT Inc. are some of the
heavyweights situated just a
few gears from LCCC.


Call (386) 7544405, and
ask for Judy.
Put down that phone.
Williams, our veteran trucker,
is about to offer pause.
According to him, trucking
schools in the South carry a
demerit.
I braced myself. My SAGE
bubble was about to be burst.
If I wore glasses, I'd be
wiping them nervously.
"Schools in the South,"
proclaimed Williams, "can't
offer winter driving." I
-exhaled. Please welcome the
truck simulator, located in
Building 021 on LCCC's
campus. I myself haven't
tried it, but I know someone
who knows someone who
has, and I hear it's a treat It
recreates for the student how
it feels to drive through
extreme conditions like hail,
sleet, and snow.
So that seals it.
SAGE-LCCC is the school for
your money. And when you
graduate and hit the road, let
Williams' advice follow you.
Discover which dispatchers
are good, and hold them
near. And after a few years,
buy your own truck. "Then
once you keep undercutting
the big companies," Williams
said, "you'll be set for life."
And with that, he was off.
Charles Williams is a busy
man.
Gray is an associate
professor of mathematics at
Lake City Community College.
He can be reached via e-mail at
grayp @lakecitycc.edu. The
telephone number for LCCC's
Sage school is (386) 754-4405.

CANCER: Patient
Continued From Page 1D
cancer.
Neuroendocrine cancer is a rare
type of cancer which originates in the
neuroendocrine system where the
nervous and endocrine systems work
together. The doctors told her that the
diagnosis was better because they had
a treatment plan they could treat the
cancer with.
"This was the first miracle," Cribbs
said.
The procedure has Cribbs receiving
six chemotherapy treatments. She
goes for the treatments for a period of
three days and then has two weeks off.
Five of the six treatments have already
been completed, Cribbs said:
The fourth treatment was completed
just before Christmas.
Before the end of the year, and
because of insurance constraints,
Cribbs decided to get another CT scan
to see how the chemotherapy was
working on the cancer. A week after
the scan, Cribbs went back to
Gainesville to get some bloodwork
done.
While waiting, a physician's
assistant told Cribbs and her husband,
Rodney, that the tumors on her pan-
creas were gone and that except for
some small lesions on her liver, the
cancer was gone from there as well.
"It was nothing short of a miracle,"
Cribbs said. "I said, 'to God be the
Glory,' there is no way to explain it."
The last of the six treatments will be
done the first week in February, then
Cribbs will have another scan to see
exactly what is left, she said.
"I feel that the last treatment will fin-
ish it off," Cribbs said. "Presuming that
it is gone, I will then go every week for
bloodwork."
She will also continue to receive
scans bi-monthly until she can one day
say, 'I am a cancer survivor,' Cribbs
said.
Only once did Cribbs break down
and truly feel sorry for herself and her
condition, she said.
Early one morning, shortly after the
first diagnosis, Cribbs woke up and sat
in the new addition the family is build-
ing on the back of their house and took
a moment to herself.
"I went out back, sat on the floor and
cried.my guts out," Cribbs said. "I then
sat up, took a deep breath and told God


I was sorry for doubting that he was in
control, and I accepted his peace and
quit fretting."
Lorene Gregory, Cribbs' mother,
and Gregory's sister Martha, both
from Tennessee, have taken turns stay-
ing at the Cribbs' home and helping
with the homeschooling lessons and
day-to-day chores as Cribbs fights the
cancer.
"Having them down here to help has
been fairly' crucial because everyday
things can get you down," Cribbs said.
Gregory said she was in dis-
belief when she first learned of her
daughter's diagnosis.
"I couldn't believe it was that bad
.and us not even aware she had
anything wrong," Gregory said.
Currently the family is gearing up
for a camping trip at the Stephen
Foster Folk Culture Center in White
Springs, an effort to bring some
normalcy back into their life.

Pam Cribbs laughs with her children, Callie (left), 12, and D.J., 11, while entertaining their family pets. 'Nobody's immune from
this,' Pam Cribbs said. 'I think (chemo) makes most people the sickest. I haven't been sick. That's a big blessing.'
