According to Lake City Police

unprofessional administration" as one
of his reasons for his resignation.
Millikin announced his resignation
before the Columbia County School

of the meeting.
During the
meeting Millikin
answered quies-
tions about a new

west side of the county. After the
school construction gained board
approval, Millikin again approached
the podium and passed out a sealed

A bulldozer gathers tons of broken trees and debris from last Friday's tornado into a pile Tuesday afternoon in an effort

but it could be weeks before all debris from affected homes and businesses is cleaned up.

Officials: Federal disaster area

funds not likely for Lake City


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
The Lake City homes, busi-
nesses and areas damaged and
destroyed by Friday's killer twister
will not be eligible for federal disas-
ter area funding, according to state
officials.
John Cherry, external affairs
director for the Florida Division
of Emergency Management, said
conference calls to all the coun-
ties affected by last week's severe
weather were made and the state's
regional coordinator was working
with Columbia County officials to
take care of a response to the local

According to the rough damage
assessment information Cherry
quoted at 3 p.m. Tuesday, there
were 60 homes affected by the
tornado 15 homes had minor
damage, 21 homes had major dam-
age and 33 homes were destroyed.
Only the major damage and
destroyed households are factored
into receiving federal funding.
"If we were anywhere close to
100 households, we would be
aggressively pushing to get federal
dollars in here and request the dec-
laration," Cherry said. "Regardless
of whether it gets federally declared
or not, I think the state can come to

residents of Columbia County."
The assessments were done
because the federal government
has thresholds that allow states to
determine if they meet the require-
ments to request a federal disaster
area declaration from President
George.W. Bush.
"The norm is about 100 homes,"
he said. "(Lake City is) way below,
almost 50 percent below the thresh-
old for the state to request a federal
declaration. The more important
thing here is there are still peo-
ple who have been devastated by

Much of this was accomplished with

longer."
Millikin continued by stating that
he has watched a growing trend of
personal conduct issues and other
questionable decisions that made
him ponder if long-term damage to
the district was being done.

The Columbia County School
Board, during its meeting
Tuesday night, approved con-
struction to begin on the new
elementary school, which will
be located west of town. The
project will cost no more than
$15,131,147.
The school, currently called
Columbia County Elementary
School "AA," could begin con-
struction as early as the end of
the month and could see comple-
tion by April 2009. The school
will be located on Birley Road.
The project, which has been
under way for more than a year,
was brought to a head at the
school board meeting Tuesday
night David Wood, with PPI, the
construction management firm
hired by the school district for
pre-construction activities, gave a
presentation to the board outlin-
ing the costs, timetable and layout
of the first phase of the structure.
A second phase, a middle
school, could be added on to the
site at a later date.
The school will contain
78,269 gross square-feet, Wood
said, and consist of seven build-
ings, along with 24 regular class-
rooms and six classrooms that
can be used for Exceptional

School Board weighs options for

trimming $850,000 from budget


By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.com
The Columbia County
School District is weighing a
number of options that would
soften the blow of an $850,000
budget shortfall, the bulk
of which would come from
$700,000 that was originally
planned to be used for general
maintenance projects within
the district.
Other options being dis-
cussed are increasing fuel
charges for field trips, a hiring
freeze on non-teaching posi-
tions and the implications of a
four-day work week.
The district learned on
Feb. 21 that the state is requir-
ing that it cut 1.18 percent of
its current 2007-2008 operating
budget before June 30. This
comes after the district was pre-
viously forced to cut $1.3 million
from its general fund before the
start of the school year.
Assistant Superintendent of
Administration Mike Millikin
said Tuesday that most of the
shortfall will be handled by,
cutting back on maintenance
projects, diverting approxi-
mately $700,000 back to the
general operating fund.
Millikin was interviewed
before his resignationTuesday
evening at the school district
board meeting.
He said the State of Florida
provides school districts with
PECO, or Public Education
Capital Outlay, dollars


annually that go toward new
construction, such as libraries
or new classrooms, as well as
maintenance.
"You can use that for a num-
ber of things, like the regular
day-to-day routines costs for
the district, or you can save it
or bundle it up and do several
big projects," Millikin said.
'Typically, we've done the lat-
ter and the routine mainte-
nance costs for painting, floor
covering, light fixtures, wir-
ing, those things we've usually
taken out of our general oper-
ating budget because they
were general maintenance
expenses, and save our PECO
dollars for big projects."
Because of the large cut-
back, however, the district
is re-allocating moneys that
would have been used from the
general operating budget to
PECO. PECO funds could not
be used to help the shortfall,
Millikin said, as those dollars
must be used toward new con-
struction or maintenance only.
He said PECO is a state trust
fund primarily funded by utility
receipts paid into the state.
This loss in maintenance
dollars means that the school
district will have to re-priori-
tize the importance of several
projects.
'"What really hurts us is
that we've done a lot of our
major renovations, taken the
trips, purchased the comput-
ers we're left with very
little flexibility," Millikin said.


"You can take a little out of the
general fund, you can restrict
travel and not replace staff
that leave, but there is very
little for us to do between
now and June 30. Our goal
is to protect people's jobs
and maintain the academic
programs at our schools."
While the load may have
been 'lightened, the district
must still find a way to trim an
additional $150,000.
The district has a number
of options to pitch, includ-
ing increasing the fees of
the aquatic complex during
the summer or restrict the
complex's operational hours,
canceling field trips not paid
by students, PTO organiza-
tions or internal accounts and
requiring e-mails instead of
written memos.
'We're asking all of the
principals to help us with all
of these decisions," said Lex
Carswell, assistant superin-
tendent of instruction. "Each
time health insurance comes
up, we look at that to negotiate
the best possible package we
can. E-mails instead of paper
memo, that's a no brainer and
we should be doing that one
anyway.
He said the option of a four-
day school week isn't out of
the question. He said that
it would save' 20 percent on
most items.
"It is something we're look-
ing at," Carswell said. "Will it
be a reality? Probably not."

Water restrictions put on hold


By MICHAEL MITSEFF
mmitseff@lakecityreporter.com
In response to recent above
average rainfall that has
swelled rivers to flood and
near-flood stage, implementa-
tion of Suwannee River Water
Management District manda-
tory phase II water restric-
tions that were scheduled to


begin on April 7, has been
delayed until May14.
In addition to the higher
river levels, groundwa-
ter levels also appear to be
improving, according to the
SRWMD, which has prompted
district officials to re-evaluate
groundwater conditions.
Dinges said that a network
of monitoring wells crisscross


the district where minimum,
monthly readings are taken,
more often if necessary.
The mandatory water use
restrictions, if implemented
May 14, prohibit watering of
established lawns and land-
scapes more than two days
per week, and no watering
is permitted between 10 a.m.
and 4 p.m.

Women in


crisis find


calm voice


in shelter

The Pregnancy Crisis Center
in Lake City continues to
provide a very worthwhile
community service. The
people who dedicate their.
lives to staffing the center fill a void in
an area of our community that needs
quick and sound counseling.
Officials at the center say they
counsel between 60-70 young ladies
each month. The women are pregnant
Most are scared and confused and need
direction in their lives.
Executive Director Barbara Walker
summed up the role of the center: "We
give them the courage to birth babies."
The faith-based organization is
pro-life and counsels those who visit
with a nurturing hand that prepares
them for their future as a mother.
The shelter functions through the
donations of the community for items
such as blankets, bibs and baby clothes.
Mothers-to-be are equipped with
knowledge and the basic necessities
required to help outfit a newborn.
The shelter provides a calming voice
to teens who may be on the verge of
desperate actions that could create
mental and emotional scars for a
lifetime. Many times, these decisions
are made in haste and without any
advice from an uninvolved party.
The Pregnancy Crisis Center
provides a calm and quiet option and
the staff at the center offer solid,
faith-based advice. They help with the
struggle of young pregnant women who
are searching for answers.
It's a service that operates quietly in
the shadows, gets very little attention,
but one that is worthwhile of our praise,
prayers and respect

Cowboys not afraid to dress in pink for cause


By JOHNNA PINHOLSTER
jpinholster@lakecityreporter.com
Grab that pink cowboy hat
and slip on those boots the
rodeo is coming to town.
The 14th annual Florida
Gateway Pro-Rodeo will span
three days and feature PRCA
cowboys and cowgirls com-
peting in a variety of events.
Before they saddle up,
Columbia County Resources
is celebrating and raising
money for a good cause.
Starting tonight at 6 p.m.,
the Florida Gateway Pro-
Rodeo Throw Down will thank
sponsors and entertain guests
with games and food. The first
200 attendees will receive free
hamburgers and hot-dogs
and a chance to take a spin
on the mechanical bull, CCR
President Steve Briscoe said.
There will be a drill team
demonstration and a rock
climbing wall provided by the
U.S. Army.
"This is a kick off to the
rodeo, to get people excited,"
Briscoe said.
It is CCR's goal to raise


$50,000 for breast cancer
awareness, which will go
into a crisis fund established
by the organization to help
fund breast cancer awareness
events and provide free mam-
mograms to Columbia County
residents, Briscoe said.
While funds raised from the
rodeo go to support CCR, pro-
ceeds from March 8's Tough
Enough to Wear Pink Rodeo
Hoe-down and the upcoming
golf tournament will go into
the crisis fund set up by CCR
to help provide free mam-
mograms and services for
Columbia County residents.
Though the final numbers
haven't been tallied, Briscoe said
the Hoe-down auction raised
approximately $19,000, with
the final figure for the event
estimated at around $40,000.
The rodeo will begin Friday.
Gates will open at 6 p.m. and
the rodeo will start at 8 p.m.
The gates will open again at
6 p.m. on Saturday, and on
Sunday, the gates will open at
noon, with the rodeo at 2 p.m.
The rodeo has been a PRCA
sanctioned event for close to


11years, Briscoe said. Cowboys
and cowgirls will compete this
weekend for prize money and
points that will help them qual-
ify for the National Finals
Rodeo in Las Vegas.
Events will include bull-rid-
ing, tie-down, steer wrestling,
team roping, barrel racing,
bareback and saddle bronc.
Briscoe said he expects to
see around 300 contestants
this weekend competing at
the arena.
Saturday night is "Pack the
Stands with Pink," and Briscoe
encourages everyone to wear
pink to support breast cancer
awareness.
In conjunction with the


local Shriner's organization,
a rodeo for disabled and
impaired children will take
place at 12:30 p.m. Sunday.
Friday's tornado shut
down the Tough Enough to
Wear Pink Golf Tournament
at Quail Heights Country
Club, but the event has been
rescheduled for March 28.
Cost is $50; register at www.
columbiacountyresources.com.
Advance tickets for the
rodeo are free for children
five and younger, $5 for chil-
dren ages 6-12 and $10 for
other attendees. Tickets at
the gate will be $13.
For more information, call
the fairgrounds at 752-8822.

this disaster and it's not only
Columbia County's responsi-
bility to take of their needs,
but send a team out there
today (Tuesday)."
Cherry said the disaster
is local and state officials
will need county officials to
determine the unmet needs
that can be provided for by
the state or provided for by
volunteer organizations.
"If there are no unmet
needs, then really the state
has a very limited role," he
said. "If there are unmet
needs that the county can-
not provide, it's the gover-
nor's responsibility through
Emergency Management to
take care of Floridians in dire
need and we will do so."
Harvey Campbell, Columbia
County Emergency Operation
Center public information
officer, said crews are nearly
finished with street cleanup
and power lines have been
removed, but in terms of
debris in the affected area, it
could be two weeks or more
before debris cleanup is
completed.
Campbell said the county
has requested that Gov. Charlie
Crist declare the affected area

MILLIKIN: Resigns post


Continued From Page 1A
"I've been torn between
leaving or staying and con-
tinuing to serve the people
the best I could and I simply
cannot continue any more
to work under what has
become an unprofessional
administration despite the
best efforts by many great
people," he read.
"You've heard the full expla-
nation," Millikin concluded,
"but the simple and short one
is that eventually every man
has to be able to look his chil-
dren in the eye and feel good
about his job. I can no longer
do that."
Markham called Millikin's
resignation "unprofessional"
and called it a jab a jab aimed at
him and the entire district.
Millikin previously served
as assistant superintendent
during Michael Flannagan's
tenure as superintendent.
Millikin ran for superinten-
dent in 2004 and was defeated
by Markham. Millikin was re-
appointed as assistant super-
intendent after Markham was
elected.

Reports say the two vehicles initially refused
to stop for officers, but later stopped at Lake
Jeffery Road and Washington Street.
The three people who were in the two vehi-
cles were arrested and a fourth suspect was
arrested south of the businesses.
About an hour later, a fifth suspect was
arrested with stolen property in his possession
near Alachua Street.
All of the stolen property from both
establishments was recovered.
After authorities reviewed various video from
numerous sources, all five men were charged
with two counts of burglary, grand theft and
felony criminal mischief.
The five men who were arrested were:
William Troy Boyette, 18, of Jacksonville;
Lamar S. Mitchell, 21, of Jacksonville; Richard
A. Ebelt, 19, of Jacksonville; Jamel R. Wescott,
19, of Jacksonville and Eric C. Mosley, 21, of
Lake City.


PHILPOT: Returned to Columbia County
Continued From Page 1A


On Thursday, Philpot
waived his extradition process
and was transported back to
Florida by a private prisoner
transport company.
Philpot, 25, was arrested
at 2 p.m. March 4 without
a struggle by the Houston
Police Department's Fugitive
Apprehension Unit at the
Palace Inn Motel. He was
arrested on a warrant for leav-
ing the scene of a crash with
death, leaving the scene of a
crash with serious injury and
violation of probation.
Lt. Mike Burroughs, Florida
Highway Patrol public affairs
officer for Troop B, said FHP
investigators are continuing
their investigation.
"We were elated to see
Michael Philpot returned to
Columbia County on charges
originally levied by the Florida
Highway Patrol," Burroughs
said. "Florida Highway Patrol
troopers, with the assistance of
the Columbia County Sheriff's
Office detectives, continue to
forge ahead diligently in the
criminal crash investigation in
which Michael Philpot is the
suspect in the crash that took
the life of Pamela Pafford and
critically injured her son.
"Troopers are meticulously
collecting, corroborating and
filtering information relating
to this crash," ,Burroughs
said. "The dynamics of this
crash investigation have a
broad scope, therefore troop-
ers must follow a matrix of


"Our goal is
to utilize
cooperative
agency
teamwork."'
Lt. Mike Burroughs,
Florida Highway Patrol
thorough criminal investiga-
tion to insure 'no stone is left
unturned.' Through the coop-
erative teamwork of Florida
Highway Patrol investigators
and CCSO detectives, citizens
of Columbia County can rest
assured that a comprehensive,
fair and accurate investigation
will be delivered.
"Our goal," Burroughs
said, "is to utilize cooperative
agency teamwork through the


maximum use of the criminal
justice system to lead to the
successful prosecution of any
criminal wrong-doing discov-
ered in this investigation."
Authorities, who launched
a statewide manhunt, were
uncertain how Philpot was
able to elude officers and get
to Houston. Detectives traced
a cell phone that was pur-
.chased in Lake City and used
in Houston and were able to
find Philpot.
"Our detectives and the
Florida Highway Patrol
worked long and hard on this
case and now Mr. Philpot can
face the criminal charges he is
accused of," Columbia County
Sheriff Bill Gootee said in a
prepared statement from the
sheriff's office Web site.

Rising


rivers


hurt


fishing

I can't complain
about the recent
heavy rainfall.
Yes, the Suwannee
is high, muddy and
filled with an abundance
of floating debris which all
combine to make the
fishing miserable, but it will
only be a couple of weeks
and we should be able to
reap the rewards of all of
the fresh water.
As of this writing the
Santa Fe River was in
minor flood stages in its
upper reaches around Little
River Estates, though the
Suwannee was still several
feet from spilling out of its
banks.
Whafs amazed me is
just how fast the Suwannee
has risen iii such a short
amount of time. For
example, it rose almost
ten feet in seven days at
Branford. In order for
that much water to come
down the pike that quick,
there has to be a pretty
strong current and from
what I've been told by the
numbers of folks who've
been making daily treks
down to their places on the
Suwannee to raise docks,
clean debris and check
on things the water is
rolling.
If you plan on boating
in the Suwannee anytime
soon, I would be very
cautious. The floating logs
and debris can not only
ruin a lower unit but could
cause you to lose control of
your vessel. Also, keep in
mind that there are
temporary "No Wake"
zones imposed in certain
areas of the Santa Fe
and there may be more
imposed if the water
continues to rise.
You can monitor the river
conditions by logging onto
the Suwannee River Water
Management Web site at
www.srwmd.org.
I'm sure you might have
seen one or two wrapped
boats with matching
wrapped trucks, vans or
SUVs passing through the
area in the last couple of
weeks. To answer the
question I've been asked
repetitively, "yes there's a
bass tournament in Florida
... several, actually." The
two biggest bass fishing
tournament trails in the
nation both kick off their
season in Florida this year.
The FLW Tour opened
their season two weeks
ago down at Lake Toho
in Kissimmee. You would
have thought that the
tournament would have
been won by one of the
many Florida anglers that
entered the tournament
But instead, the
tournament was dominated
by Brett Hite who lives all
the way out in Arizona. Go
figure?
Hite actually set a new
FLW Outdoors record by
outdistancing his closest
competitor by more than
20 pounds.
The Bassmasters Elite
Series kicked off this past
week on the Harris Chain


of Lakes in Leesburg.
Orange Park angler Bryan
Hudgins was in second
place after the first day of
competition with 21-6.

* Damon Wooley is a bass
fisherman and tournament
angler. He is a USCG-licensed
captain and guide and operates

Milestone year for FFA


Open Bass Tournament


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Catching fish from the Suwannee River is a
tradition which has been shared by many local
families.
That tradition, combined with the
opportunity to win money, is what often attracts
local, competitive anglers into fishing area
tournaments on the river.
That tradition will continue next weekend
during the Columbia Senior FFA Open Bass
Tournament.
The 10th Annual Columbia Senior FFA
Open Bass Tournament will take place March
22 at Clay Landing. Anglers in the contest will
fish from safelight to 3 p.m.
Entry fee for the event is $55 per boat There
is an optional $10 big bass pot per boat.
"I hope to have 40 boats- or better this year,"
tournament director Karen Brown said. "The
largest field was the first year, in 1999, when 59
boats competed in the event."
Brown said 60 percent of the money that is
taken in goes back to 10 percent of the fisher-
man as prize money. For details, call 752-0743.
Proceeds from the event will go to the
Columbia High FFA program.
"It goes for a scholarship for an FFA
member," Brown said, noting there has been a
scholarship given to an FFA student each year
the tournament has been held.
Brown said she is looking forward to the'
10th annual event.
"Every year I get real nervous about this
time of the year because it takes so many boats
to provide this scholarship," she said. 'To me,
I look forward to this because I get to see the
fishermen. I see a lot of the same faces every
year. They really support this tournament and
this organization.
"It means a lot to my family. The FFA organi-
zation is very dear to us. This is a very special

event and to know that when ifs all over with
you're going to be helping someone further
their education makes it special."
The tournament was started by Brown's son,
Justin Brown in 1999, as his FFA project when
he was a junior at CHS.
This year several local businesses made
contributions and a "Captains bag," with
miscellaneous items from donors, will be
provided for each team that participates.
The tournament will also include a raffle
where anglers can purchase tickets and try to
win a variety of prizes.
"Generally if you buy a ticket, you are going
to get a goody and we have some really nice
goodies this year," Brown said.
Recent high water levels on the Suwannee
River have added an element of uncertainty to
this year's tournament.
"A lot of people may be worried about the
high water and we are watching it very closely,
but if we get no wake restrictions we will make
a judgment call at that time," Brown said.
