"We've done our homework
on everything, we've got our
poll workers trained, we've had
early voting and we've got all of
our equipment tested and, ready
to go to the polls," Home said.
The ballot contains a list, of
presidential party hopefuls and a
proposed amendment to the
state constitution. Participating
in the election will allow voters to
cast their ballots voting on
Amendment 1 (the proposed
property tax reform amend-
ment) and to select a party
candidate for president.
Columbia County has 25
polling precincts for Tuesday's
presidential preference election
and the polling sites will be
opened from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Polling precincts #1, #18 and"
#23 have new locations.
Mt. Salem Baptist Church,
6334 SW County Road 240, is the
new location for polling precincts

Timing of impact fees


elicits skepticism


Builders say fees
should wait until
market recovers.
By MICHAEL MITSEFF
mmitseff@lakecityreporter.com
I n an effort to keep up
with the demand for
services resulting from
an influx of new
residents that had
homes built in Columbia
County during the recent real
estate boom that turned bust,
a comprehensive Impact Fee
ordinance and an educational
facilities impact fee was
recently adopted by the
Columbia County Board of
County Commissioners.
Beginning Feb. 1, every
building permit issued in
Columbia County will cost
builders an extra few
thousand dollars, depending
on whether the project is
residential or commercial,
industrial or institutional.
Many in the community
feel that the impact fees are
long overdue, and some
builders agree that the county
needs funds to provide
services, but what they differ
on is the timing of the fee's
implementation.
"The position of the board
(of realtors) is that we
understand the need for
impact fees, unfortunately,
the construction industry is
suffering right now and this is
not the time to implement

By TROY ROBERTS

MASON CITY A bleak and wet
forecast Saturday failed to dampen
the spirits of dozens of past and cur-
rent farmers who took part in.the
North Florida History of Agriculture
Celebration.
Large tractors welcomed passing
motorists to the Mason City
Community Center on Saturday and


handshakes, hugs and smiles wel-
comed visitors inside. Young and old
alike were in attendance, with the
older crowd talking about times long
past and the changes in agriculture
over the years. Country music could
be heard over the sound system
and lunch was provided by Nettles
Sausage.
"This is our roots, this is what
we're about," said organizer Don
Adams. "This is our lives."
As an agricultural community,
Columbia County has changed a lot

OPINION


Sunday, January 27, 2008

EDITORIAL


Freezing


impact fees


would be


wise move

Impact fees are a part of growth
and the fact that it is necessary
for them to be implemented in
Columbia County to help offset
the overwhelming cost of keeping
up with infrastructure costs is a fact.
We've supported impact fees in the
past when they were first seriously
discussed and we still believe these fees
are a good idea.
. But, we also understand the state of
the economy and launching them on
Feb. 1 does seem like questionable
judgment on the part of the county
commission. With the real estate
market slow, the impact fee will be
assessed at the time of the building
permit purchase and will be an
additional burden to carry by real
estate developers.
By its own admission, the county
took five years to craft and implement a
simple impact fee schedule. That fact
alone is testimony that it will not hurt
county officials to postpone the
assessment of these impact fees.
If county officials didn't see impact
fees as a pressing issue when the real
estate market was booming, why now
during a slow period? And, if real estate
is slow to sell, the need for additional
infrastructure right now is a moot point
because growth in the form of large
developments is stagnant
County officials should be doing
everything possible to assist real estate
developers, agents, builders and those
,connected to market support industries
already in business locally. Our elected
commissioners should make an effort
toward this by freezing the impact fees
for at least six months.
Take another look at it in July, see if
the housing market is back on its feet,
then maybe set an implementation date
for the new impact fees in Columbia
County.
Feb. 1 is not the right time for this
new fee to hit the books.

COMMENTARY


Ike recalls Robert Persons


The Rev. Dr. Isaac
B. (Ike)
McDonald (CHS
1949) has had a
distinguished
40-year career as a Baptist
minister. He read my column
last week where I wrote that
Joe Persons had given our
School Museum a picture of
his grandfather, Robert E
Persons, a Columbia County
resident and a 1908 graduate
of UE
The name Robert Persons
meant something special to
Dr. McDonald and he was
moved to write me this letter.
"Just read your latest
column and noticed that Joe
Persons had given you a
photo that included Robert F.
Persons.
"That same Robert Persons
was a deacon in the Fort
White Baptist Church when I
served as a young pastor
there in 1953-1954. He signed
my letter of recommendation,
which was required for me to
enroll at the Southern Baptist
Theological Seminary in
Louisville, Ky., for graduate
studies. I still have a copy of
that letter with Mr. Persons'
signature.
"Mr. Persons was also on
the board of directors at the
bank in High Springs, and he
was instrumental in my
obtaining a loan so I could
purchase a used 1953 Ford,
which I drove my last year in
college and my first two years
in seminary.
"Please tell Joe that I said
his grandfather was a true
Christian gentleman and a
huge help to me when I was a
young minister struggling to
make a go of it." (
I did pass Ike's fine words
on to Joe Persons, and the
Persons family appreciated,
his kind words' about their
grandfather.

Miller of First Baptist. They
could be first team in the
Heavenly Choir.
Speaking of First Baptist,
the Rev. Robert Davis who
served 24 years of his 40-year
ministry at Lake City's First
Baptist Church, is now
serving the Woodstock Baptist
Church in Jacksonville but
still has a home in Lake City.
Changing times. Many
years ago, the three largest
churches in our county were
First Methodist, First Baptist
and First Presbyterian, all-
located inside the city limits.
I'm told that now the three
largest churches in our county
are Hopeful Baptist, Christ
Central Ministries and Meade
Ministries, and all three are
located well outside the city
limits.
According to church
records, longtime Methodist
G.W. '"Wash" Robarts, former
Clerk of Circuit Court and as
fine a man as you could meet,
had the honor of giving
Wesley Memorial United
Methodist Church its name.

School talk
Our school system is still
seeking a photograph of Eura
Zinnerman who signed the
legal papers in 1966 to racially
integrate our school system.
Speaking of local racial
integration, years before
court-ordered integration,
Jeanne NesSmith and Louise
Hines may have been the first
two local teachers to "cross
the line."
Jeanne was director of the


Head Start Program and
taught at the all-black Minnie
J. Niblack School. Louise, also
a part of Head Start, taught at
the all-white Five Points
School.
June Epperson served on
our school board for 12 years
and during that time she was
so dedicated that she was
never absent from or late to a
meeting.
June often cites Frances
Wilson, then the school
board's administrative
secretary, as a person who
would have made an excellent
school superintendent. June
says, "Frances was so smart
she could have handled that
job with ease."
Coach Richard Anders,
likewise a long time school
board member, concurs:
"Frances Wilson was a
walking encyclopedia of
information about our school
system."
Frances is now happily
retired and living near Fort
White with her husband, Carl.

FLORIDA DEPT. OF TRANSPORTATION

ROAD REPORT


The following is a list of roadwork
under way by the FDOT that may
impact traffic.

COLUMBIA COUNTY:
Interstate 10: The eastbound
outside lane about three miles east of
the Interstate 75 interchange, or around
mile marker 300, is scheduled to be
closed Monday through Thursday from
7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. to pressure grout
and then mill and resurface the roadway.
Interstate 75: Daytime and
nighttime lane closures begin Sunday.
at 8 p.m. for northbound traffic at mile
marker 417, about three miles north of
the U.S. 441 (Exit 414) interchange.
The work proceeds north to the State
Road 47 (Exit 423) interchange. The
State Road 47 on and off ramps will be
temporarily closed for paving during
the late night and early morning hours.
It is possible that crews will reach the
| State Road 47 interchange during the
week and if so, then work will proceed
to the southbound outside lane. No
lane closures will be allowed from


Friday at 6 a.m. until Sunday at 8 p.m.
When lanes are closed the speed limit
will be reduced to 60 mph and
speeding fines will be doubled in the
work zones. FHP will be patrolling the
work zone.
Also, traffic will be shifted or lanes
closed during the week at the
interchanges between the Alachua and
Suwannee county lines under the
overpasses and at the ramps while
inmate crews repaint the roadway
markings.
U.S. 441 Norfh: Daytime lane
closures after 8:30 a.m. for milling
(removing the asphalt) and repaving
from north of Falling Creek Bridge to just
north of the Deep Creek Bridge. Lane
closures will be up to two miles long and
there may be more than one lane

Rain and cold temperatures may delay
the work. Motorists should allow at least
an extra 15 minutes to reach their
destination in time.
U.S. 441 North: The northbound
outside lane will be closed beginning


Tuesday between Tammy Lane and Bell

SUWANNEE COUNTY:
U.S. 129 (North Ohio Avenue):
Work is scheduled to begin Sunday at
7 p.m. at the intersection with U.S. 90

"It's important to recognize
the students who are achiev-

are our future,," she said. "Ift's
not an easy task being consis-
tent, maintaining an average.
A lot of kids can maintain for a
short time, but it's really quite
an achievement, across the
board including electives, to


maintain a 3.5 GPA."

president of the Lake City

"Delaying new or increased

during an interview published
in Builders Edge magazine.
"Local governments should
take appropriate steps to
reduce costs so more citizens
can achieve the American
dream of home ownership."
The educational facilities
impact fee will impose a $1,500
upfront added cost to the
builder when he pulls a permit
for a home.
Impact fees will also be collect-
ed for fire protection, road build-
ing, correctional facilities and
emergency medical services.
"In 1991, we suffered one of
the worst housing slowdowns
in Allentown Pa., and this
housing market resembles
that one," said Matthew
Erkinger of Erkinger Home

ers and ensure it also benefits
low-income people who are
most likely to spend the cash.
"Almost everyone who earns
income will receive some bene-
fit," said Douglas W. Elmendorf,
an analyst at the Brookings
Institution. "The idea is to target
the money on the people who
will spend a large share of it, and
to target it on people who are
likely to be hurt by an economic
downturn."
People who do not make
enough to pay taxes but had at
least $3,000 in earned income
would get $300. Those earning
less than that would be dis-
qualified, as would the wealthi-
est. Older people living solely
off Social Security checks
would not get the rebate.
Individuals with adjusted
gross incomes of more than
$75,000 and couples with
income exceeding $150,000
would get smaller checks.
Contributions to individual
retirement accounts, 401(k)
retirement accounts and health
savings accounts would not
count toward the limits.

"Basically it's very bad tim-
ing on the county's part. If it
was done a few years ago it
would have been a good idea."

Added value

According to the Web site
www.impactfees.com, the price
of new housing actually rises
because of impact fees, then
the value of existing housing
will follow suit because it is an
integral part of the local real
estate market.
Current home buyers who
move up to more home will be
able to use their "windfall prof-
its" to pay for the increased
costs of the new home.
That would coincide with
the saying that a rising tide
lifts all boats.
According to the Web site,
when Broward County wit-
nessed extraordinary growth
and rapidly-declining service
levels in the early 1970s,
County Commissioners Anne
Kolb, Ken Jenne and Howard
Forman adopted a new char-
ter, mandated land use plan-
ning, passed a major capital
bond issue, drafted a new land
development code and adopt-
ed a new financing tool called

an "impact fee."
Basically, it was South
Florida which helped to
reshape the way American
cities and counties now pay for
public infrastructure.
"If we had implemented this
thing when Florida was in a
construction boom, it would
be easier to justify," said Mike
Todd of Todd Construction.
'"The last six months we've
started three new homes.
"During the construction
boom, we started one or two
new homes every month."

Open for debate

Ron Williams, Dist 1 County
Commissioner, believes that
adoption of impact fees reduces
pressure on local residents to
raise taxes and fees.
'This is something we've
been working on for five
years," Williams said.
"I think at the every least, it
should be delayed for at least
six months to a year and wait
for the housing market to come
back," Erkinger countered.


"Customers are looking for
bargains, but now we have to
increase our costs because of
the fees."
According to Williams,
there will be no advantage or
disadvantage to be gained or
lost by the builders.
"If the same impact fee
applies to everyone, the play-
ing field is level, so there is no
advantage from one builder
to another," Williams said.
"Somebody has got to pay for
additional services that we
need and the impact should be
on the people who are causing
the impact."

Stunting growth?

Others raise the issue that
the fees stifle growth.
"Why did Target come
here? Because .the county gave
them incentives, so why is that
such a radical idea for hous-
ing?" developer Charlie Sparks
questioned. "One of the
biggest industries in this area
is new construction, so why
not provide incentives?"


Even with impact fees tak-
ing effect Feb. 1, the housing
market has its upside.
"I would say that it's a great
time to buy; good prices and
inexpensive mortgage money
is available," Sparks said.
The debate seems to hinge
on one's point of view.
Developers and builders see
the glass as half empty, the
county sees it half full.
The educational facilities
impact fee for 2008 starts at
$1,500 and is collected for.
all new construction of single
family, site-built homes and
for newly purchased mobile
homes.
The educational facilities
impact fee collected for new
construction of multi-family
units, such as apartment build-
ings, start at $705 per unit
In 2009, the multi-family fee


will increase $235 and each
year thereafter until it reaches
a total of $1,645. The single
family, site-built/mobile home
fee will increase $500 per year
until it reaches $3,500.
"I would rather see them put
this thing off until 2009 until
the housing market can stabi-
lize," builder Jody DuPree said.
"Local governments do need
some help paying for services,
however, anything that we as
builders don't have to pass along
to the consumer helps us."
Others agree.
"I would suggest that the
implementation of impact
fees be delayed until the state
and new construction has a
chance for recovery," Todd
said. "Perhaps look at other
temporary ways of generating
income to help in those needy
areas."

Tebow vists


Gators quarterback
introduces coach
Craig Howard.
By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
Award ceremonies often
have a transitory tone and are
somewhat subdued. That was
the case at the Columbia High
Football Awards Ceremony on
Saturday until emcee
the Rev. Isadore Williams
revealed a surprise guest in
his closing remarks -
Heisman Trophy winner Tim
Tebow.
Tebow, in turn, introduced
new CHS head coach Craig
Howard, who he played for at
Nease High.
"It is an honor for me to be
here and introduce Craig
Howard," Tebow said after
everyone in the audience
finally sat back down. "Playing
for Coach Howard was special
for me. He taught me a lot
more than football. He taught
character, strength and honor
and he is going to bring that
here to Columbia High. You'll
learn them and you will live by
them."
Nease won the Class 4A
state championship in 2005
when Tebow was a senior.
"We won a state title at
Nease," Tebow said. "Imagine
what he can do here with all
these great athletes. You have
to buy into his program. A lot
of great athletes think of
yourselves as greater than
your team, but you have to
serve everybody on your
team."
Tebow listed his priorities
as, "No. 1, faith and my
relationship with Jesus Christ,
No. 2, family, No. 3, academics
and No. 4, football. You have to
learn to have your priorities in
order."

8-shot


lead
Tiger's lead after
54 holes is a new
course record.
By DOUG FERGUSON
Associated Press -
SAN DIEGO Break out
the umbrellas for rain, and the
white flags for Tiger Woods.
Winning the Buick
Invitational became a matter of
when not who after
Woods put on a clinic Saturday
by hitting 17 greens in
regulation, building an eight-
shot lead and hoping he
doesn't have to wait until
Monday to collect a fourth
straight title at Torrey Pines.
"I'm in second place. I'm not
really in contention," Stewart
Cink conceded. "He's just
hard to beat right now."
Woods finished off a
6-under 66 with a tap-in birdie on
the par-5 18th, where his
3-iron landed on the bank but
stopped short of going into the
water. That put him at 18-under
198, tying the 54-hole tourna-
ment record set by Woody
Blackburn in 1985.
Cink made a 35-foot eagle
on the final hole to trim the
lead to eight.
Woods shattered the Buick
Invitational record for largest
54-hole lead, which was five
shots, and it was the largest on
the PGA Tour since Phil
Mickelson led by eight shots at
the BellSouth Classic in 2006.
It was his largest 54-hole lead
since he led by 10 on his way to
a 15-shot victory in the 2000

can for your team."

Learn to

vent your

emotions
A chronic lack of pleasure,
of any enjoyable, rewarding
or stimulating experiences,
produces a slow, gradual,
day-by-day erosion of man's
emotional vitality, which he
may ignore or repress, but
which is recorded by the
relentless computer of his
subconscious mechanism
that registers an ebbing flow,
then a trickle, then a few last
drops of fuel until the day
when his inner motor stops,
and he wonders desperately
why he has no desire to go
on, unable to find any
definable cause of his
hopeless, chronic sense of
exhaustion.
-Ayn Rand

The tour is open to the public, but
LCCC students are particularly encouraged to
take the once-in-a-lifetime trip.
The 14-day tour is offered and conducted by
Educational Tours, specialists who design
custom college study tours.
This tour is a unique opportunity for students
to integrate travel halfway around the world
with college studies, Carder said.
Students who join the tour have the
opportunity to earn up to six credit hours, three
humanities and three business course credits.
"There is a course called Intercultural
Exploration and that has traditionally been used
for our teachers, people who are going into the
teaching profession because they need to take a
course in cultural diversity, but it also works as
a humanities credit for the trip," Carder said.
A business course called Advanced Seminar
in Business is also worth three credit hours for
those students enrolled in the class and who
travel to China.

EMOTIONS: Need to be vented
Continued From Page 1C


around him. For example, if an employ-
ee sued him for some ridiculous rea-
son, he never expressed how angry he
really felt about the lawsuit When his
competitor under priced him on a
major client, he just acted unaffected. If
he got mad at a staff member he would
just boil inside without venting any of
these negative emotions.
Unfortunately, about six months ago,
he had a heart attack that really shook
his world. As he was recovering, he had
plenty of time to think about his life,
family and business. One day during
this recovery, it occurred to him that
much of the stress and anger he felt
was because he just could not express
his emotions, especially to his staff and
family.
Another entrepreneur that we are
working with has started to gain
weight He refuses to exercise and just
does not feel well. About two months
ago, a key staff member one that he
thought was totally committed to him
and his firm resigned. Ever since, he
has felt so angry with this former
employee that he just cannot let it go.
He has these furious feelings that he
cannot vent, and they are driving him to
really injure his health.
Clearly, swallowed feelings can man-
ifest in very negative ways. It is critical
to learn how to appropriately vent our
emotions. In order to do so, you first
must recognize that you have them. It
is so easy for people to go numb and
avoid their feelings, but when they are
ignored, feelings just continue to build
up. Learning to feel joy, sadness, anger,
fear, guilt and pride will allow you to do
something about them.
Now, we guys have a real problem
expressing our feelings. like me, many
men grow up being told that we are not
allowed to show our feelings that to
do so is a sign of weakness, especially
to cry. I can still remember what my
dad told me when I was 6 years old. I
had fallen down and had a bloody knee,
and he said, "Jerry, do not cry, or you
will be just like a girl." While this may
not be politically correct now, it made
one heck of an impression on me.
Women, on the other hand, are much
better than men at expressing their
feelings. In so many ways, our culture
encourages them to be more expres-
sive of their feelings. As a result, they
are able -to deal with their emotions
much more constructively.


Now, I must caution you that
expressing your feelings, particularly
anger, is not always a good idea in the
workplace. Finding a safe avenue to
vent is key when managing emotions in
the workplace. Women have learned to
tell their friends how they feel. This is
one sure way of allowing feelings to
percolate to the surface and then
dissipate.
With men, however, this is just not
going to happen. I just cannot imagine
many men calling their friends and say-
ing, "Bill, I am feeling so sad that an
employee let me down." Expressing
feelings between guys is tough, and for
me, it much easier to tell my wife or
another female how I really feel about
something rather than my best male
friend. However, the point is that you
must find someone that you can regu-
larly talk to about how you feel in order
to keep these emotions from building
up.
In order to master my feelings, I had
to learn to ask myself ten times each
day, "What do I feel, and what do I
need?" While this process took a long
time, I can now feel my emotions and
figure out what to do with them once
they have been identified.
Another thing that I frequently do is
get in the car and scream (of course,
there is no one else in the car). I will
scream at the top of my lungs about
how angry I am at a student for per-
forming so poorly on an exam that I
thought I had prepared him for. After I
do this, I feel so much better. Another
thing that I do is just allow myself to feel
the emotion until it dissipates as
most will if allowed to run their course.
Laurel -Mellen wrote a book called
"The Pathway" and a series of learning
kits that changed my life. It showed me
how to recognize my feelings and then
holy to process them. It was about a
two-year experience, but it was worth
every second.
Being able to vent your feelings con-
structively is so important for your
health, as well for ensuring that stuffed
emotions do not leak out in an inappro-
priate way. You can be a much better
leader and manager if you can
effectively vent your feelings.
You can do this.

LCCC: Trip to China in summer 2009 open to all
Continued From Page 1C


a student can earn college credit
while traveling someplace and actual-
ly seeing it like the Great Wall of
China," Gunter said. "You may see a
picture of it, but if you go and stand
on the Great Wall, it's a whole
different experience."
The first 36 hours will be devoted to
travel, but once the group arrives in
China, it will be nearly non-stop touring.
First stop is the capital city of
Beijing where four days of sightsee-
ing will begin the tour of China.
Beijing was named in 1402, when it
became the capital for the second
time in Chinese history.
Notable sightseeing opportunities
include Tiananmen Square, scene of
the 1989 massacre when Chinese
troops opened fire on protesting stu-
dents causing a worldwide uproar
over the violence.
Also scheduled is a trip to the
Forbidden City (Gugong), which is
surrounded by a moat and protective
wall. Its golden-roofed palace is one of
the world's architectural achieve-
ments, and hundreds of thousands of
workers labored on its construction.
Of course, China currently has a
population estimated to be between
1.3 billion to 2 billion people, nearly
20 percent of the world's population,
which is currently, 6.6 billion.
The palace was constructed
during the Ming Dynasty between
1403 to 1424.
Next stop on the tour is the city of
Xi'an (pronounced Shi-ahn) for a two-
day layover. It was once the largest
city in the world and the capital of
11 dynasties.
'We'll be visiting one of the auto-
mobile manufacturers, a pharmaceuti-
cal company and a beer brewery, plus
we will have lunch with Chinese stu-
dents among many other activities,"
'Carder said.
For those who travel to China, they
will be visiting the fourth largest coun-
try in the world (after Russia, Canada
and the United States).
It's climate is tropical in the south to
subarctic in the north and Mount
Everest, the world's tallest peak, soars
29,029 feet into China's thin cold air
on the border of Nepal.
"In the old days, when educators
were more specific, a lot of people,
instead of going to university or
school, went to the pyramid or went to

coast of The
People's
Republic of
China, where
a summer
2009 China
tour will take
place.

Greece or wherever and learned by
seeing it for themselves," Gunter said.
'Travel has always been a form of
education."
China's land area is such that its
borders touch 14 countries, including
Russia and North Korea.
"China fascinates me because it is a
communist country trying to become
somewhat capitalistic," Carder said.
"Its population makes it the largest
economy in the world, so that's the
interest to me, from a business
standpoint
"We'll also be doing the major
tourist things like the Great Wall, and
well go see the 6,000 soldiers in the
terra-cotta army that were accidental-
ly discovered when peasants were
digging for water in 1974," Carder
said.
The 6,000 life-size warriors and
horses were sculpted to protect the
tomb of Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi,
founder of the Qin Dynasty from
221-206 B.C., he was the first ruler
to unify China, according to


Educational Tours.
"We'll also go to Shanghai,
Shenzhen and Hong Kong. During
the trip we will ride around in rick-
shaws and visit the local neighbor-
hoods located in the hutongs
(alleyways and sidestreets).
'We'll get a real close-up look."
China created its first Special
Economic Zone in Shenzhen, allowing
it to manage its economy separately
from that of the nation and to have
much more local control.
The tour ends in Hong Kong's bur-
geoning metropolis, which was the
former British Crown Colony until it
reverted to Chinese control in 1997.
"The reason we are starting to talk
about the trip now is because it is so
expensive, the trip will cost about
$3,500.
"So if you started paying now, you
could be paid up by the time the trip is
here," Carder said.
Carder suggests that anyone think-
ing of going should be in good health
because the walking tours alone will
be at least two hours in length or
more.
"So you will want to be healthy and
ready to roll when we arrive in China."
For anyone interested in learning
more about the trip to China, a gener-
al interest meeting will take place
at 3:30 p.m. Monday in building
27, Room 10 at LCCC.
"Even if you have only the slightest
inkling that you may want to go on the
trip or just want to find out more about
it, just show up," Carder said. "It does-
n't commit you to anything, and the
meeting and the tour are open to any-
one who cares to go, it's not just for
students."

A pie to remember


JMSouNM ATiH II tVV vvfMLE LK.EILdKi uily Repuorer
Donald and Phyllis Joye became husband and wife on Dec. 29, 1957. After the ceremony, they returned to Lake City to start a new life together, but first they
needed to graduate from Columbia High. 'You couldn't be married and go to high school at the same time,' Donald recalled. 'We had to finish high school. We had
a lot going on. We wanted to finish that year out.'

Teen won her mans heart with pastures 50 years ago
By JOHNNA PINHOLSTER
jpinholster@lakecityrteporter com


In the summer of 1955, Phyllis Williams
was working at the Dixie Grill on
then-Marion Street, serving up meals and
making desserts for customers.
One day, her life changed forever.
When Donald Joye walked into the mom and
pop restaurant and saw Phyllis in her
waitress uniform he couldn't take his eyes off
her.
Both were soon-to-be juniors at Columbia
High School, but their paths had never crossed.
Until that summer.
One day Phyllis approached the owners of the
Dixie Grill with an idea in the hopes of pleasing
the new man in her life. They allowed Phyllis,
now 68, to make Donald, 67, a pie and for the
rest of the summer she would make him pies
and other tasty desserts to take to the sign shop
where he was employed.
The pair began dating that summer. Their
love blossomed, and they decided to marry. Last
December they celebrated 50 years of marriage.
But for the first six months of their marriage,
the couple didri't live together or wear wedding
rings. The couple got hitched over winter break
their senior year. In the late '50s, teenagers
couldn't go to school and be married.
So Donald and Phyllis snuck off to Nahunta,
Ga., and were married by a judge.
The impulsive act wasn't done in defiance of
parents both sets knew their children were

"We knew if we told anybody we would have
to go to night classes," Donald said.
, The idea of finishing out the year away from
classmates aAd school activities was out of the
question for both. There was prom to consider,
plus Phyllis was homecoming queen and
Donald played on the football team.
The trip to Nahunta in December was the
second time the pair had made the journey,
Phyllis said.

Phyllis said. 'We got up there and the judge

LAKECIT REPORT LIE SNDA, JNUAR 27 208 Pge Eito: JrrySpaeer,754042


Consider physical therapy profession at LCCC


By OLGA DREEBEN
Coordinator for physical therapy
assistant program
The physical
therapy
professions
include two
occupations, the
physical therapist and the
physical therapist assistant.
Both occupations working
together provide health care
services to restore a patient's
function, improve mobility
relieve pain, and prevent or
limit permanent physical
disabilities Of people
suffering frtm injuries or
disease,
Other important
responsibilities of these
health care speiasts are to
restore, maintain and
promote overall fitness and
health. They also treat
accident victims and
individuals suffering from
conditions such as low back
pain, arthritis, heart and
lung disorders, fractures,
head injuries, strokes and
cerebral palsy.
Most recently, the physical
therapist and physical
therapist assistant
professions are described to
be the best college graduate
careers in the United States.
In 2007, Parade magazine
listed the physical therapist
occupation as one of the six
"Hottest Jobs for College
Graduates." Parade magazine
and the U.S. Bureau of Labor
Statistics attribute the
increased demand for
physical therapists and
assistants to the aging baby
boomer population. The large


baby boom
generation
is entering
the prime
age for
heart
attacks and
Dreeben strokes,
further
increasing the need for
cardiac, physical and
occupational rehabilitation.
In addition to being one of
the most needed occupations,
physical therapy is also a very
rewarding career. The Chicago
Tribune reported in 2007 that
physical therapists represent
the second profession (after
clergy) to be very satisfied
with their jobs. Their
satisfaction stems from many
reasons such as improving the
quality of life for patients,
extensive direct contact with
patients, strong job security,
intellectual stimulation, and a
high level of control and
freedom on the job.
Lake City and its
surrounding communities are
most fortunate to have
available at Lake City
Community College (LCCC),
a Physical Therapist Assistant
(PTA) program. The PTA
program gives the opportunity
for those residing in the large
area served by the college
the ability to acquire a
physical therapist assistant
degree in just two years.
Physical therapist
assistants function under the
direction and supervision of
physical therapists. Working
as a team with physical
therapists, the physical
therapist assistants help
patients of all ages who have


medical problems, or other
health-related conditions that
limit their ability to move and
perform functional activities.
Physical therapist assistants
work in a variety of health care
settings such as hospitals,
nursing homes, outpatient
clinics, home health, sports
and orthopedic facilities,
schools and private practices.
Health care provided by
.physical therapist assistants
includes, among many other
interventions, using physical
agents such as massage and
ultrasound to relieve pain and
muscular spasm, teaching
patients to exercise and
increase strength, and
training patients to walk with
crutches, canes or walkers.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor
Statistics projects that
employment for physical
therapist assistants between
2004 and 2014 is expected to
increase much faster than
the average at a rate of
27 percent. In the U.S.,
physical therapist assistants
held about 59,000 jobs with
approximately 60 percent in
hospitals or in offices of
physical therapists. Others
work primarily in nursing
care facilities, home health
care services and outpatient
care centers. The hours and
days that physical therapist
assistants work vary.with the
facility and with whether they
are full-time or part-time
employees.
Many outpatient physical
therapy offices and clinics
and large hospitals have
evening and weekend hours.
A small percent of all physical
therapist assistants work part


time. The median annual
earnings of physical therapist
assistants were $37,890
in May 2004. The middle
50 percent earned between
$31,060 and $44,050. The
lowest 10 percent earned less
than $24,110, and the highest
10 percent earned more than
$52,110.
Currently, many job
offerings have been in the
area of $40,000 for starting
physical therapist assistants.
Physical therapist assistant
education consists of an
associate in science (AS.)
from an accredited PTA
program. The PTA programs
are designed to last two years
and culminate in an associate
in science (A.S.) or associate
in applied science (AAS.)
degree.
At LCCC, the PTA program
is divided into two semesters
of prerequisite courses such
as anatomy and physiology,
English, ethics, college
algebra and others. After
completion of the
prerequisite courses, the
students enroll in the second
year of the program
consisting of 36 weeks of
physical therapy academic
study and 15 weeks of
hands-on clinical experience.
The clinical experience
represents an integral part of
the PTA program to ensure
that students understand the
responsibilities of a physical
therapist assistant.
Dreeberi is the coordinator
for the physical therapist
assistant program at LCCC.
She can be reached via e-mail
at dreebeno@lakecitycc.edu or
by calling (386) 754-4358.

KING: Tells 'Duma Key'

with familiar theme


Continued From Page 8D
and, realizing he is entering a
new life, Edgar leases a water-
front house on Duma Key, a
desolate, overgrown barrier
island off the Gulf Coast of
Florida. He decides to take up
an old pastime, painting no
small affair for a man with one
arm.
That's the first 35 pages. The
next 576 are dedicated to
what happens when Edgar
Freemantile paints and draws
inside the house, which he
dubs Big Pink and learns has
been a retreat for such geniuses
as Salvador Dali and Keith
Haring.
It seems that Edgar's draw-
ings have power, and not just
the aesthetic kind. Has his acci-
dent opened a window into
another kind of artistic expres-
sion that is ... more concrete?


Does the overgrown brush of
Duma Key hold secrets to a
past malevolence that is con-
trolling Edgar's art? Do the
only other permanent residents
of Duma Key, the enigmatic
Wireman and the aged
Elizabeth Eastlake, have any-
thing to do with the increasing
oomph of Edgar's artistic
abilities?
A clue lies in a statement
Edgar makes early on: "Healing
is a kind of revolt," he tell us.
"And as I think I've said, all suc-
cessful revolts begin in secret"
Today, even as they sow
unease across the culture,
King's tales typically offer some
comfort in their consis-
tency. They possess certain
expectations: that creativity
channels darkness.


Continued From Page 1D

was, she was 17 and he told
her she had to call her
parents."
Lots of tears and telling the
judge that her parents would
kill her didn't convince the
judge to marry Donald. and
Phyllis, who were both 17, so
the pair came back to Lake
City.
But on Dec. 18, Phyllis
turned 18 and once again they
jumped in the car and headed
back to Nahunta, this time
determined to come back
married.
Donald, who was still 17,
presented the judge with
Army National Guard papers:
He had signed up when he was
16 and it gave the illusion that
he was older. So the second
time stuck, and on Dec. 29,
1957, the pair was married.
"We went early on a
Saturday, and when we got
back, it was like we had been
bumming, around on a
Saturday in my car," Donald
said.
Their parents didn't suspect
a thing.
Especially since Phyllis
went home to her family and
Donald home to his. The pair
continued to date and acted as
if nothing had changed, until
the day of graduation.
Immediately after the gradu-
ation ceremony, Donald and
Phyllis bolted out the side
door of the auditorium, down
the fire escape, hopped in
Donald's 50 model Ford and
motored on over to Jack-
sonville for a much belated
honeymoon, he said.
Heading out of town on U.S.
Highway 90, the couple didn't
make it far before Donald
glanced a fast approaching car
in his rear-view mirror. At first
he thought it was the cops, but
as the vehicle sped closer he
realized it was Phyllis' father.
After forcing them off the
road, both men jumped out of
their respective vehicles and
faced each other, before the
patriarch said to Donald,
'welcome to the family.'
Somehow parents always
seem to know.
In Jacksonville, they sent a
telegram to let the rest of their
family know the good news.
The following Monday,
Donald started work at Florida
Power and Light were he was
employed for 38 years. The
pair had two sons, Ken and
Barry, and seven grandchil-
dren. The whole family cele-
brated the Joyes' 50 years
together this past December at
Tucker's Steaks & Seafood.
The banquet and renewal of
vows was put together by their
sons, Phyllis said.
Though Phyllis never had a
wedding dress to put back for
future generations, she ended
up saving her prom dress from
her senior year. It was not a
conscious decision to keep the
garment, she said, but several
years ago she pulled it out of
the closet and decided to put it
on a mannequin.
"As it got closer to our 50th
wedding anniversary I won-
dered if there was some way I
could get into the dress,"
Phyllis said.
So as a surprise to her
husband and high school
sweetheart, Phyllis had the

CUURIET rPnuIu
Donald and Phyllis Joye were married while still attending Columbia High School. In the 1950s,
students were not allowed to wed, so the couple kept their marriage a secret until graduation day so
that they could finish their senior year with their friends.


"Sometimes I wonder if (my
grandchildren) think I am spinning
a yarn when I'm telling actual truth.
We were pretty bold for our age,
and I haven't changed my mind
since I met her."


Donald Joye,
on how he met, and married, Phyllis Williams


gown altered and surprised
Donald by changing into the
dress during the renewal
celebration.
"I remember coming out in
it for prom and the look on his
face he loved red," Phyllis
said. "It's neat to be able to
wear it again after 50 years,
you would think it would be
coming apart."
Phyllis had the crinolines
and all the fixings needed for a


dress made in the '50s. .
The renewal ceremony was
very special because the entire
family got to share in the
exchange with their children
and grandchildren participat-
ing, she said. Afterwards the
entire family and some friends
flew down to the Grand
Bahamas to celebrate, Donald
said.
"She was the most special
thing in my life and still is,"


Donald said. "A fella needs to
marry up when he does."
The fairy tale beginnings of
their union have all the right
twists to be a Hollywood
movie, which often makes it
hard for the grandchildren to
believe it when Donald tells
the story, he said.
. "Sometimes I wonder if they
think I am spinning a yarn
when I'm telling actual truth,"
Donald said. "We were pretty
bold for our age, and I haven't
changed my mind since I met
her."
