local and district-wide student par-

several reasons Hall gave for the
elimination of the program.
, "We know that state funding is


going to be significantly reduced,
not only the rest of this year, but also
the next two or three years as well,"
Hall said.
"Also, the Department of
Corrections has pulled back across
the state and LCCC was one of the
last places to be pulled out of, so we

Ruben Almaguer, deputy director
of the State Emergency Response
Team, informs local and state&'fficials
Wednesday that Lake City will not
receive federal funding for disaster
relief from last week's tornado.


Local tornado survivors have. an
opportunity to talk face-to-face with
state and local officials as well as
faith-based and volunteer organi-
zations about their personal needs
as they recover, from last week's
tornado.
A tornado disaster- recovery
center has been established at the
Richardson Community Center,
255 NE Coach Anders Lane, to help
in recovery efforts.
The Disaster Recovery Center will
be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. to
register all persons affected by the
tornado's damage.

Emergency Management said even
those who have already registered
should return and re-register at
the center.
'The organizations are going, to
be set up to greet the survivors of
the tornado that had damage or
losses last week to try to identify
available assistance for those survi-
vors," Cherry said. "One of the key
elements is for them to bring iden-
tification and any vital documents
regarding their homes or losses,
so the state and local officials and
.volunteer organizations can work
with them to identify any funding
sources or any aid available to them
so we can get that to them as quickly

RUA introduces Odorization System


By JOHNNA PINHOLSTER
jpinholster@lakecityreporter.com.
As the Natural Gas Department for the
Greater Lake City Regional Utility Authority
upgrades its system, residents can expect to
smell the difference.
On Thursday afternoon, the utility brought a
new Odorization System online.
As the system is phased in, consumers may
notice a stronger smell in their home in the
next couple of days, said Nick Harwell, execu-
tive director of Customer Service and Strategic
Planning and marketing director.
Since natural gas has no natural odor,
a smell is injected into the system to help
residents detect a possible leak or potential
hazard, Harwell said.


Grateful hugs
City of Lake City Police
Officer Lavon Wynn gets
a hug from local children
Saturday as he and Human
Resource Director Carrie
Correia passed out meals
door-to-door in the
neighborhood hit hardest
by Friday's tornado. Correia
said she was compelled to
deliver meals in the
neighborhood after she
received word that many
people were not leaving
their houses to venture to
the shelters.


Mercaptan is the sulfur-based product used
to odorize natural gas, usually generating a
rotten egg-like odor.
The utility department is anticipating a high-
er call volume over the next couple days about
the odor and are ready to help, Harwell said.
People who smell the strong odor within their
house are urged to call the utility department.
Four technicians are standing by to
specifically address the issue, Harwell said.
"If they call, people should go outside and
make a telephone call or go to a neighbor's
house," Harwell said. "Because it could create
an ignition source within the home."
Harwell said the calls about the odor should
decrease after Friday as the system levels out.
The Natural Gas Department can be reached
at 758-5405.

Go crazy

By MICHAEL MITSEFF
mmitseff@lakecityreporter. com

If chicken, ribs, Boston
butt and beef brisket grilled
to perfection make your
mouth water, then the
15th annual Hog Wild & Pig
Crazy Barbecue Cook-off is
one of the places to be this
weekend.
The Lake City/Columbia
County Parks and Recreation
is once again sponsoring
the weekend event, which
will open its doors at 11 a.m.
Friday. The cooking, competi-
tion begins at 10 a.m. Saturday.
The weekend event will take
place at Memorial Stadium,
533 NW DeSoto St.
Forty-five cooking teams
are expected to compete in
this year's event, and prize
money has been increased to
pay sixth through 10th place
in four main categories.
The grand champion will
receive $2,000, and the reserve
champion will receive $1,000.
In addition to the meat-
grilling competition, wings,
sauces, desserts and an "any-
thing but" category will be in
competition as well.
"A kids cooking competi-
tion is scheduled too," said
Heyward Christie, contest


organizer.
"One type of meat will be
sold to the public, but the
meat entered into the competi-
tion will not be sold," Christie
explained.
This year's event features
a free concert Friday eve-
ning that will include sev-
eral local entertainers and
performances by the band


at Hog Wild cook-off


Stra8 Up, whose musical
stylings include rhythm and
blues, jazz and Motown.
"This is one of the few
groups that, as an emcee, I
got booed for taking them off
stage, that's how good these
guys are," said Steve Briscoe,
president of Columbia County
Resources.
Stra8 Up's first performance
is at 6 p.m. and will be a
30-minute teaser before its
complete 75-minute show.
Local entertainers will take

'"The Spirit of the Suwannee
Music Park sponsored the
appearance of Stra8 Up so we
can provide the entertainment
free of charge," Briscoe said.
Briscoe said that in light
of last Friday's horrific
tornado, this event is a good
time for members of the com-
munity to come out relax and
listen to some great enter-
tainment and forget about its
problems, if just for a little
while.

OPINION

EDITORIAL


The Oaks


complex


boon for


this area
S cores of new housing
developments have risen
from the sandy soil of Lake
City and Columbia County
over the last decade, but
none has possessed as much potential
to profoundly impact the community at
large as The Oaks of Lake City.
The Oaks of Lake City is the world's
first O'Connor Signature equestrian
community. To put that into perspective,
Olympians David and Karen O'Connor
are recognized internationally as among
*the very best equestrians in the world
today. To have their involvement, much
less partnership, in a development
designed to attract horse lovers and
Riders to Columbia County is huge.
It is very conceivable that The Oaks
of Lake City, which celebrated its grand
opening Monday, may be just the first
development in what could become a .
thriving equestrian community within
Columbia County. One need only look
at the growth and prosperity that have
come to Ocala with the clustering
of equestrian facilities there to get a
glimpse of what might be for Lake City.
Certainly vision, hard work and
perhaps some good fortune have all
played a role in the surprising location
of this world-class facility in Columbia
County. More of each of those attributes
will be necessary for The Oaks of Lake
City to reach its potential and spawn
the type of equestrian culture here that
local leaders hope to see.
We congratulate Dicks Realty of Lake:
oty for its leadership m this project,.
tb hank David and Karen O'Connor
for choosing Columbia County. With
* their accomplishments and reputation,
they could have gone anywhere to
,develop a community like The Oaks of
Lake City, but they chose to come here.
It was a decision that we believe will
reap benefits for the O'Connors and the
community at large for many years to
come.

HIGHLIGHTS

LETTERS TO

Millikin's letter
of resignation
As you know these have
been challenging times for
the district Many disturbing.
issues have made it difficult
for a lot of good people,
including myself, to do our
jobs.
Hopefully, you'll agree that
I stayed, worked hard for you
and continued to implement
our countywide construction
program, oversaw the plans
for our new school and its
final price, dealt with state
budget cuts and lawsuits,
and completed contract
negotiations for all of our
employees. Much of this was
accomplished with two less
district administrators. For
some time I have questioned
if I could continue in this
administration and I simply
.can't remain.silent any.longer.
I've watched a growing
trend of personal conduct
issues, and other questionable
decisions that disturb me to
the point I fear we may be
doing long-term damage to the
district if things don't change.
I've been torn between
leaving or staying and
continuing 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.
We now have another
assistant superintendent
who has helped stabilize the
situation and hopefully my
leaving won't put too much
extra work on the many
excellent and appreciated
district employees whom I
love.
I have been part of this
community my entire
life, served on volunteer
boards, and worked with
charitable organizations and
I stand on my integrity and
reputation. You've heard
the full explanation, but the
simple and short one is that
eventually every man has to
be able to look his children in
the eye and feel good about
his job. I can no longer do
that.
I respectfully submit
my resignation effective
today at the end of the
March 11th workday. I truly
wish the district the best and
my wife and I will continue
to be involved with our
daughter's education.
Hopefully, the future will
bring a positive change, a
better way, and a refocus
on what's really important,
providing the best education
possible for our children.

Reader upset with
Markham's comments
To the Editor:
Shocked, disappointed and
furious. These words describe
my feelings regarding
School Superintendent
Grady Markham's distasteful
comments following the
resignation of Assistant
Superintendent Mike Millikin.
First of all, as a parent of a
child in this school system,

THE EDITOR


I am sick and tired of Mr.
Markham's foul language. To
use profanity, especially in a
public meeting, is a very poor
example of how to conduct
yourself. Many times students
are present at these meetings.
Does Mr. Markham check to
see if school children are in
attendance before he speaks
in a manner that would offend
a sailor?
Mr. Markham called
Mr. Millikin's resignation
"unprofessional." I could
not disagree more. I am
sure this was a difficult
decision for Mr. Millikin
and I think he handled it
VERY professionally. It
was Markham himself who
displayed childlike leadership
and acted unprofessional!
Mr. Markham is quoted as
saying "good riddance" and
"I'm glad he's gone; we're
better off for it"
Those comments are
not only distasteful, but
quite frankly stupid. If Mr.
Markham is looking for .
ways for the district to be
"better off," he should start
acting like a professional
administrator and fulfilling his
duties in a more admirable
way. It's obvious that Mr.
Millikin could no longer
represent this superintendent
due to his unprofessional
behavior that is demonstrated
regularly. Look around
Mr. Markham, all of your
assistants are leaving.
Mr. Markham owes this
community and Mr. Millikin
a public apology. Resign or
announce you'll retire after
your term. Then we'll be
"better off."

Millikin's resignation
will hurt district
To the Editor:
I find it a big blow to the
Columbia County School
system that Mr. Mike Millikin
resigned. His comment,
"Many disturbing issues have
made it difficult for a lot of
good people including myself
to do our jobs" is something
that needs to be addressed.
Do others on the school board
feel this way? Should these
issues be made public and
addressed? Or, do we already
know them and just have
failed to respond?
Mr. Sam Markham's
response that his resignation
as being "unprofessional"
I believe to be untrue.
Who better to submit your
resignation to then the School
Board? The fact that Mr.
Markham believes that he is
making a "jab at him and the
entire district," makes me
believe that if his resignation
were done any other way, it
would have been swept under
the rug and quietly dealt with.
What does Mr. Markham have
to. hide?
I would like for Mr.
Markham to explain how
professional it was to take a
picture of him off the wall and
cut it up with a knife. Perhaps
the professional thing to do
was make a formal request
to have the picture removed.
And the firing of several
members, in my view, was


never really explained fully. I
find it unprofessional that Mr.
Markham swore, albeit mildly,
about rehiring Mr. Millikin.
Mr. Markham is hardly the
positive role model I consider
to be for the students of the
county.
I wish to thank Mr.
Millikin for his service in the
community and only wish him
the best I personally hate to
see you leave the Columbia
County School Board and
hope that the school board
looks into these "disturbing
issues." We are losing a good
man. Thank you Mr. Millikin.
God Bless.

City and county
must work together
To the Editor:
Citizens, I tip my hat
to Michael Leonard the
publisher of the Lake City
Reporter. This is in response
to his commentary dated
Sunday, Feb. 24. He told it
just how it is, representing
most citizens of the city and
county in Lake City. I grew
up in this area and never
thought I would see the
problems that goon between
the city and county. I, too,
believe it is past time that the
voters, the ones who voted
these individuals into office,
be heard. It is time the local
government be given back
to the people. It bothers me
deeply that when a citizen
asks questions that they are
given a runaround or are told
"I don't recall."
This is not to say that we
do not have good people
serving in the city and county.
We do. But, again, getting
a runaround every time a
logical questions is asked ...
there is no reason why the
city and county should not
work collectively together.
Every time they turn
around more and more
money has been spent out
of the taxpayers' pocket
when the city and county
resolve the issues just by
working together instead of
disagreeing over them.
I believe as well as I believe
others believe, that it is time
that the city and county quit
their squabbling and work to
the betterment of all citizens
of Columbia County and the
City of Lake City. I could
quote examples of hundreds
of thousands of dollars that
have been spent just to come
back to slap us in the face
where if only the city and
county would work together
as one body, the majority of
these monies which come
out off the taxpayers' pocket
could be saving.
I don't intend to point
fingers at anyone, but when
you are spending in excess of
$200,00 there surely has to be
a better way in order to make
the best of each taxpayer
dollar that is spent.
In my opinion it is up to
our elected officials, city and
county, to go out of their
way to find the best means
possible to effectively save the
taxpayers money.

Florida Highwaymen works to be on display at Stephen Foster Park


By MICHAEL MITSEFF
mmitseff@lakecityreporter.comrn

WHITE SPRINGS A small
group of young, largely self-taught
African-American artists based in
Fort Pierce, eked out a living by
capturing the unspoiled landscapes
of 1950s Florida in the nascent brush
and palette-knife strokes of their oil
paintings.
On Friday and Saturday, five of
the 26 original artists known as the
Florida Highwaymen will lecture and
exhibit a collection of their Florida
landscapes at the Carillon Tower in
Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center
State Park.
The exhibition and lectures that
the four men and one woman will
share with visitors to the exhibit
will reveal the past and present
of the Florida Highwaymen as
seen through their paintings and
remembrances of 1950s Florida. ,
While the Highwaymen were in
their formative years as artists, they
discovered a friendly and outgoing
local artist, A.E. "Bean" Backus.
It was Backus who offered his
home and talents to the young aspir-
ing artists and it was he who helped
enrich their natural talents for


colorful expression in oils of the lush
Florida landscape.
It wasn't until 1994 that Jim Fitch,
an avid collector, first coined the
term "Florida Highwaymen" for the
close-knit group of African-American
.artists.
"Black Florida landscape paint-
ers from the 1950s to 1970s, like
myself, were given the nickname
Highwaymen," said R.L. Lewis, one
of the original artists.
The young artists were known to
peddle their paintings up and down
Florida's Atlantic coast, often sell-
ing paintings right from their car
trunks.
The artists painted thousands of
the colorful Florida landscapes that
helped lure some of the state's many
tourists to its sandy, palm-shaded
beaches, according to the lore of the
times.
No matter how talented the young
black artists, they were not wel-
comed into local art galleries so
they improvised and sold their art
wherever they could find buyers.
"The thing was. we were black
and the art world was white," Mary
Ann Carroll (the only female Florida
Highwaymen) recalled about 1950s
Florida.


COURTESY PHOTO
'It's a Brahma's World' is a Cracker
Cowboy scene from the St. Johns
River and was painted in 2006 from an
archival photo provided by a member
of the Florida Cattlemen's Association.

Carroll said she was first intro-
duced to oil painting by fellow
Highwaymen Harold Newton.
"It was around 1957 when I started
painting landscapes, seascapes and
abstracts," she said.
Lewis was painting landscapes
about the same time as Newton and
Carroll.
"I had my artwork in the back
of my van, other artists sold from


the trunk of their cars," Lewis said.
"I also went to banks, accountants,
attorney offices and businesses.
"Most of our clients were the
white, upper-middle class and they
were the ones who bought our
paintings.
"Before we could sell our paint-
ings though, we worked to establish
a rapport with the, people," Lewis
said.
Carroll said she remembered an
art gallery owner at the time by the
name of Jerry Freil, who owned a
West Palm Beach gallery called the
Hungry Artist.
"He furnished the board and we
furnished the paint and the talent,"
Carroll said. "He paid us $10 per
painting for 10 landscapes per week
- that was big money to us."
The appearance of the Florida
Highwaymen will take place in con-
junction with the 8th annual White
Springs Wild Azalea Festival from
9 a.m. to 4 p.m., on Saturday inside
the park. Also taking place this week-
end is the Little Miss Azalea contest,
which is open to young ladies.
Among other events on Saturday
is a street crafts fair that will offer
handmade specialties, the Nature
and Heritage Tourism center will be


the setting for stage shows featuring
Florida folk singers, musicians and
cloggers.
Horse-drawn wagon rides into
the park will leave the tourism cen-
ter and will run from 10 a.m. to
4 p.m. The cost of the ride is $1 per
person.
On Friday, a silent auction and
private reception to meet the five
Florida Highwaymen will run from
6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Admission to the
reception is $5 per person.
On Saturday, the five artists,
Robert Lewis, Issac Knight, Willie
Reagan, Mary Ann Carroll (the only
female Florida Highwaymen) and
Curtis Arnett, will each give an hour-
long lecture in a tent adjacent to
Carillon Tower. Lewis will begin the
event at 10 a.m. The work of the indi-
vidual artists will be exhibited and
offered for purchase.
For more information, call Deb
Odom at (386) 234-0843.
The azalea festival and the
Highwaymen events are sponsored
by the Live Oak Artists Guild,
North Florida Art League, White
Springs Wild Azalea Festival Special
Events Committee and Stephen
Foster Folk Culture Center State
Park.

educational outreach pro-
grams, festivals and radio and
television appearances.
Performance highlights
include concerts and cer-
emonies in the United States
and Europe commemorat-
ing the 50th anniversary of
World War II, for the 750th
anniversary of the founding
of Berlin, at the rededica-
tion of the Statue of Liberty,
for Presidential Inaugural
Parades and at international
jazz festivals in Switzerland,
Belgium and the Netherlands.
Joint concerts with many of
the nation's leading orches-
tras, including the Boston
Pops, National Symphony,
Cincinnati Pops and Detroit
Symphony Orchestra, have
received rave reviews.
The United States Army
Field Band is considered by
music critics to be one of the
most versatile and inspiring
musical organizations in the
world. More than six decades
as the military's most trav-
eled musicians have earned
them the title, '"The Musical
Ambassadors of the Army."

The board also extended
the local state of emergency
for another seven days. The
extension must be renewed
every seven days by law.
"Basically ifs several funds,
but one of them is the SHIP
program, which is a housing
assistance program," Board
Chairman Dewey Weaver said.
"A portion of the money in the
program is available for repairs
to the damaged homes.
'We'll also be able to apply
for a federal grant to help with
housing and free up some small
business administration loans
that will also help to restore
that area," he said.
The funds depend upon the
governor acquiescing to the
boards request, Weaver said.
"We feel like we'll receive
action within the next seven
days," Weaver said.

SPORTS: Programs curtailed at LCCC


Continued From Page 1A
"That's been a significant loss
to the college and we've been
told that LCCC is the largest
training program for DOC in
the state."
The decision to cease ath-
letics wasn't made in haste,
according to Hall, but it came
about after the completion of a
routine program review of the
athletic program found that
of the 41 scholarship student
athletes competing this year,
only three are local or from
the five counties serviced in
LCCC's district
The program elimination
will affect only those 41 stu-
dents out of a student body
consisting of more than 7,500
enrolled at LCCC, Hall said.
"The athletic program has
continually been a problem
with gender-equity compli-
ance, problems at the dorm
and food-service require-
ments," Hall said.
The cafeteria provides three
full meals, five days a week all
year round and is a require-
ment because of the dormi-
tories used by the athletic
program, Hall said. The cost
of the meal service includes
$48,000 annually paid in man-
agement fees to the food ser-
vice company.
The cost to the school in
fiscal year 2006-07 for the
athletic program totaled


$578,945.97, which includes
personnel and operating costs
of $283,325.62. Scholarships
and FTE tuition exemptions
total another $295,620.35.
'The athletes with scholar-
ships will have their agree-
ments honored if they choose
to stay at LCCC after the sea-
son ends," said Charles Carroll,
vice president for instruction
and student services.
A portion of the $295,620
representing student athletic
scholarships and tuition exemp-
tions along with other savings
will be redirected to academic
scholarship programs locally.
The college will attempt to
make up the loss of DOC pro-
gram money and recoup some
of the funds at the state level.
About $283,325 will be
redirected into starting new
programs and hiring need-
ed staff. This redirection of
funds will help address the
loss of DOC and state funding,
Carroll said.
"We had received what
are called Succeed Grants -
money from the state autho-
rized by the legislature and
with it we were able to pur-
chase more equipment and
hire nursing staff," Carroll
said. '"That in turn allowed us
to increase enrollment in our
nursing programs."
When the reorganization


is finalized, the plan, accord-
ing to Carroll, is to use some
of the redirected funds to
replace the money that will be
lost when the Succeed Grants
run out in June.
Although the college
appears to be restructuring,
Hall points to programs fund-
ed by scholarships and other
programs that are thriving at
the college that also under-
went recent program reviews.
"A couple of years ago we
offered a two-year forestry
degree that had 19 students,
but only graduated six by the
end of the second year," Hall
said. "Even though the college
was founded on forestry, we
couldn't continue to graduate
less than half the class, so after
review we changed the pro-
gram to a one-year certificate.
Now 19 start and 19 finish."
The college also participates
in the Governors Summer
Program grant that provides
$40,000 to benefit up to 25 high
school students 16 and older.
The students are gifted or
high achievers and are rec-
ommended by their teachers
to participate in the 24-day
program of study.
"We can run the college
without an athletic program,
but we can't run the athletic
program without the college,"
Hall said.

we get the best placement for them for any aid
or assistance available to them. We urge the
citizens to come out and see what's available

OFFICIALS: Federal aid will

not be available locally


Continued From Page 1A
Across town, on Martin
Luther King Jr. Street, Hilton
Jones watched as debris was
being moved from the Caesar
Funeral Home property.
"The tornado demolished
the business, it messed it up
- cars and all," Jones said,
noting the building has been
a neighborhood staple since
1952.
Jones said he didn't speak
to anyone about the federal
funding issue, but he was dis-
appointed local twister vic-
tims didn't qualify for federal
funding.
'That doesn't make any
sense," Jones said. "All these
people's homes got messed
up like they did, cars and all.
The government needs to try
to help people."
He said the inside of the
funeral building is not dam-
aged and the funeral home
will attempt to rebuild, even
without federal aid.
Atthe Emergency Operation
Center, Deputy director of the
Florida Division of Emergency
Management Ruben Almaguer
said officials need to be pre-
pared so that at the end of the
day they can help the tornado
victims.
'This is going to be a state/
local partnership," Almaguer
said. 'Today was the 'king pin
meeting' that is going to turn
direction in Lake City for the
residents that got affected by
the tornado."
With more than 20 state
and local agencies, faith-based
and volunteer organizations
represented at the meeting,
officials were able to name
the Richardson Community
Center, 255 NE Coach Anders
Lane, as a disaster recovery
center where storm victims can
have their needs addressed.
"It will be a site where those
affected by the storm can go


to and we say do a sort of 'one-
stop-shopping,'" Almaguer
said. "They'll be able to meet
local officials, state officials
and volunteer organizations
that can try to address every
single need that a person has.
"I think the immediate needs
have been met," Almaguer.
said. "What hasn't been met
yet are the long-term plans for
housing and that's where the
state and local governments
are going to try to identify
dollars that are available and.
locations that are available, so
that long-term people have a
place to go and have shelter
for their families."
StaterepresentativesDebbie,
Boyd and Will Kendrick are
scheduled to meet with state
and local officials at 9:30 a.m.
today at the EOC to get an
update on the local recovery
effort, Following the meeting
the legislators are scheduled
to visit the Disaster Recovery
Center and then tour the.
storm-damaged areas.
Many officials at the meet-
ing in the governmental and
service agency sectors said
the biggest issue following the
storm is housing and finding
housing for tornado victims
in the interim, as well as on a
long-term basis.
Lake City City Councilman,
John Robertson was told to
revise the city's paperwork
for its $750,000 Community
Development Block grant so
that some of the money could:
be used to rebuild houses in
the affected area.
Additional brainstorming at
the meeting allowed agencies.
and professionals to combine,
forces and eliminate most of the'
issues that have been hamper-:
ing efforts to address tornado,
survivors, such as collecting'
information and finding current
addresses for survivors.

Florida Gateway
Pro-Rodeo begins
Friday in Lake City.

Nationally ranked steer
wrestler T-Roy Orr will be
coming to Lake City all the
way from Lebanon, Tenn.,


LCCC announces
end to Wolves
sports programs.
By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
Tom Clark ranks 25th for
wins on the active list of junior
college baseball coaches in the
country. He won't get many
more at Lake City Community
College.
The school announced
Wednesday it will end
all Timberwolves sports
programs at the end of the
season. Baseball, softball and
golf teams will be disbanded
when competition ends in
May.
"There were things going
on about budget concerns,
but I did not think it would
happen," Clark said after
Wednesday's practice. "I
heard about it a week ago and
asked if it was a done deal and
could I speak to the board. I
covered the good things and
the things we are criticized
for. I tried to emphasize what
our kids accomplish."
Clark, who is now athletic
director at LCCC and has
been baseball coach since
1994, was offered a faculty
teaching position. The other
coaches were not so lucky,
including first-year baseball
assistant Bruce Larkins,
who just bought a house in
Columbia County and has a
baby on the way.
LCCC President Charles
Hall on Wednesday said
the move to dismantle the
athletic programs at the
college was completely based
on the financial strain the
baseball, softball and golf
teams placed on the school.
In fiscal year 2007,
40 student athletes competed
between the three teams at
a cost of $578,945.97. This
year, 44 student athletes
are enrolled in school and
compete on the teams, but
complete financial figures will
not be totaled until the end of
the fiscal year in July.
"It has been an
extremely hard day," softball
coach Donna Howard said. "It
is discouraging to me. Several

Gateway Pro-Rodeo, but his
points won't come easy.
Orr will have to earn
them, right in Cody Ariola's
backyard and the steer
wrestler from Live Oak is ready
for challengers after placing
first at last year's event
"I'm looking forward to it,"
Ariola said. "It's nice to see
some big names."


Ariola is just one of the
nearly two dozen local
cowboys and cowgirls
- trying to pick up some
recognition along with some
of the cash and points in the
14th Annual Florida Gateway
Pro-Rodeo, which runs
Friday through Sunday at the
Columbia County Fairgrounds
Arena.
"It feels good to finally


get one by the house for
once," said Ariola. "I've been
between Louisiana and south
Florida for a while, and I was
looking forward to getting one
closer to home."
More than $1,200 in prize
money will be up for grabs at
each event in this weekend's
PRCA-sanctioned rodeo, and
the valuable points can go a
long way in carrying a cowboy

everybody wanted to rebuild
the program and return it to
prominence. I thought we
were turning the corner. The
hardest thing is I have signed
seven kids for next year and
I have to call and tell all of
them."


Columbia High baseball
coach Andy Bennett played
for Clark as a walk-on and
went on to earn a scholarship
for his last two years.
"It's devastating with what
that baseball and softball
mean to this community,"
Bennett said after Columbia's


game on Wednesday. "As a

Clark, he changed my life.
He was a large part in what I

become a young man. There
are probably hundreds of us."

CHS beats district leader Forest, 1-0


Lady Tigers softball routs
Eastside High, 18-4, to
improve to 7-4 overall.
By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia High baseball hosted the
top dog in District 4-5A and caged it.
The Tigers beat Forest High 1-0 on
Wednesday in a makeup game from
Friday.
It was the fourth win in a row
for Columbia, which improved to 4-4
overall and 4-2 in district play. Forest,
which beat CHS earlier in the season,
fell to 6-2, 5-1.
Brandon Leslie pitched a four-hitter,
struck out 10 and picked a runner off
first base. He walked one, hit one bat-


ter and one reached on an error.
"It felt good," Leslie said. "Having
the defense behind me gave me
confidence on the mound. I was
throwing a curve and slider and they
were chasing them."
Columbia's run came in the fifth
inning after two fly outs. Gerren
Bannister walked and moved to third
on a single by Brandon Scott. Brandon
Rolfe walked and Bannister scored on
a wild pitch.
Bannister had a lead-off double
in the first inning. Cameron Sweat,
Codey Blackwell and Rolfe had the
other hits for the Tigers.
Pitcher J.T. Thomas was 3-for-3 for
the Wildcats, but took the loss despite
striking out nine in five innings.
Columbia hosts Leesburg High in a
district game at 7 p.m. Friday.

Race week

NASCAR SPRINT CUP
Food City 500
Site: Bristol,Tenn.
Schedule: Friday, qualifying (Speed Channel,
3:30 p.m.); Sunday, race (FOX, 1:30 p.m.).
Track: Bristol Motor Speedway (oval, .533
miles, 36 degrees banking in turns).
Race distance: 266.5 miles, 500 laps.
Last race: Kyle Busch gave Toyota its first
.NASCAR Sprint Cup victory, driving away
from the pack in the waning laps to win the
Kobalt Tools 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Busch, winning for the first time since last
March 25 at Bristol, took the lead for good
with 50 laps to go when Carl Edwards, trying
for a third straight victory, went out with a
broken transmission.
Last year: Busch held off teammate Jeff
Gordon on a restart, then beat Jeff Burton in
a drag race to the finish line to win the first
Car of Tomorrow race. Busch took the lead
with 16 laps to go on a smooth pass around
Denny Hamlin in thick traffic and stayed there
through a pair of cautions. Busch had driven
away from the competition when the 15th and
final caution set up overtime.
Fast facts: Dale Jarrett's 24-year career will
be coming to an end this weekend.The 1999
champion won 32 Cup races, including one
at Bristol and three Daytona 500s. He will
compete in the exhibition all-star event
at Lowe's Motor Speedway in May before
heading to the broadcast booth. ... Hendrick
Motorsports has yet to record a victory
this season after taking 18 of the 36 races
in 2007. The manufacturer won last year's
Food City 500 to ignite a five-race winning
streak. ... Dario Franchitti, who won both
the Indianapolis 500 and the. IndyCar series
championship last year, is off to a slow start
in Sprint Cup. He struggled to a 33rd-place
finish at Atlanta and is already 401' points
behind overall leader Busch. Sam Hornish
Jr. is 36th in the standings. .:. Toyota is the
first foreign winner in stock car racing's top
series since Jaguar in 1954.... Last week, Busch
became the first driver to win the Cup and
truck events in the same weekend.

NASCAR NATIONWIDE
Sharpie MINI 300
Site: Bristol,Tenn.
Schedule: Saturday, qualifying, 9:40 a.m.
(Speed Channel, Noon, tape), race (ABC,
2 p.m.).
Track: Bristol Motor Speedway.
Race distance: 159.9 miles, 300 laps.
Last race: Matt Kenseth passed Jeff Burton
for the lead on lap 186 and held on to win the
Nicorette 300. The race was extended three
laps beyond the scheduled 195 at Atlanta
Motor Speedway because of a late caution
flag. It was Kenseth's first Nationwide victory
since April 14, 2007, at Texas a stretch of
18 races.
Last year: Carl Edwards held off hard-
charging teammate Kenseth over the final
dozen laps to win at Bristol Motor Speedway.
It was a typical crash-filled Bristol race, with
12 cautions for 103 laps and one red-flag
stoppage. NASCAR also made a miscue on
pit road that confused most of the field and
gave Edwards, Kyle Busch and Ryan Newman
a second chance. Edwards used that free pit
stop to get fresh tires and drive away to his
first win of 2007.
Fast facts: Sprint Cup drivers occupied
the top eight spots in last year's race.... Busch
led 153 of the first 170 laps at Atlanta before
blowing a tire and hitting the wall for the
second straight week. ... Kevin Harvick has
four career Nationwide wins at Bristol,
including the .2005 event from the 38th
starting position.... Mike Wallace will try to
become the 12th driver in series history to
make 300 career starts, while Jason Keller
will seek his 29th career appearance at
Bristol, which would break a tie with Tommy
Houston for most all-time.

RODEO: Local cowboys have advantage


Continued From Page 1B
big wins throughout the
Southeast, and other local
riders will be making sure the
competition is fierce. Some
even have some big rodeo
names as mentors, and they
certainly won't be shy about
taking points and prize money
away from anyone.
"I've been around Ivan
Nelson, who has been to the
national finals twice, so I'm
used to being around some of
the big names," Ariola said.
"The older guys help a rookie
grow up real quick."
While everything from
the decoration to the smell
and sounds of the rodeo can
make a cowboy feel at home
anywhere from Washington
to Georgia, the home-field
advantage for the some
20 area competitors is
undeniable.
"It definitely helps me a lot
to be at home," Ariola said. "I
get to go last on Sunday, so I'll
be there Friday and Saturday
watching the steer so I'll know
what to do."
On Friday, the first night
of rodeo, Tuffy Perry of
Williston will lead off the
showcase of local rodeo
talent as he starts off the
tie down roping event, and
the team of Billy Bishops
of Inverness and Mike
Sanders of Wauchula will
compete in the team roping
event.
Heather Kuhn of
Middleburg will start the
girls' barrel racing off, and
she'll be followed by Angel
Edwards (Micanopy) and
Sandy Woods (Lake City).
Fort White's Chris Lites
will cap the first night's
competition for the locals
when he competes seventh in
the bull riding.
Alan Frierson of O'Brien
will begin the saddle bronc
competition on Saturday and
Bradley Massey (Perry)
will compete in tie down
roping. The teams of Bradley
Massey (Perry) and Shane
Hester (Lakeland) and Robert


Powell (Jacksonville) and
Scott Fletcher (Callahan) will
compete in the team roping
event
Nathan Vickers (Ocala)
and Canton McCormick
(Jacksonville) will compete
in the bull riding event on
Saturday.
Garrett Beach of Trenton
will compete in Sunday's tie
down roping event, and the
teams of TylerByrd (Branford)
and Frierson and Brent Aldoff
(Ocala) and Johnny Kennemer
(Anderson, Ala.) will compete
in the team roping event.
Shellie Reinbott of Live
Oak and Squeak Larkins
(Ocala) will be competing
for points in the girls' barrel
racing event.
The lack of ranked
riders should come as no
surprise this early in the
season, though, according
to this year's master of cer-
emonies, Jerry Todd. With
only a few rodeos behind
them and nearly 200 more
PRCA-sanctioned events
across the country, many have
yet to hit their stride or had a
chance to separate themselves
from the herd.
"It's really the start of the
season, so everybody's try-
ing to make a move," Todd
said. "It's like NASCAR. Kurt
Busch is hot right now, and


everyone is thinking, 'How
good do I need to be all
season, and how long do I
have to do it for?'
'This early in the season,
everyone has a chance."
And the event's importance
is lost on no one. Cowboys
from as far away as Colorado
and Wyoming will be in
Lake City this weekend, and
some of the best riders in the
Southeast will join them for
what one rodeo veteran said-
was one of the best events in
the region.
'This is one of the
premier events in the South,"
said Paul Riggs, a longtime
competitor who is now a
representative for PRCA
national sponsor Dodge.
'Traditionally, a lot of
the big money riders
are all in the South in the
winter, and right now they're
all throughout parts of Texas
and Florida, and a lot of
them come through here.
This really is one of the
biggest events this time of
year."
The rodeo begins at 8 p.m.
on Friday and Saturday and at
2 p.m. on Sunday.
Advance tickets cost $10 for
adults, $5 for children ages
6-12 and free for children
under 5. Tickets at the gate
will be $13.

Williams, ACC field ready for

'granddaddy of all tournaments'


By MIKE CRANSTON
Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C.
- A North Carolina native,
Roy Williams knows this
state comes to a virtual
stop for the tradition-filled
Atlantic Coast Conference
tournament.
It's one of the toughest
tickets in college sports, fills
league coffers and leads to
endless arguments in this
basketball-mad area.
It also makes the North
Carolina coach squirm.
If the top-ranked Tar Heels
(29-2) are to repeat as ACC
champions, it means three
games in three days for point
guard Ty Lawson on his
gimpy ankle and sore hip. It
means three straight days of
banging and collisions in the
paint for ACC player of the


year Tyler Hansbrough.
Not the perfect scenario for
a team expected to be a No. 1
seed in next week's NCAA
tournament regardless of
what happens this week.
"It's a great cocktail party
and a big party for all the
fans," Williams said. "Growing
up here in North Carolina,
the ACC tournament is
the granddaddy of all the
tournaments. It means a
great deal, and at the same
time we can't put all our
loaves in this basket."
Yet, for a league with only
two ranked teams, North
Carolina, No. 7 Duke and
probably Clemson are the
only teams with NCAA bids
locked up.
For Miami, Virginia Tech,
Maryland and the others, this
week brings pressure to pad
the NCAA resume.


"I've got to believe that
we're going to be in, but
you don't know what's going
to happen with the other
conferences and you don't
want to take anything for
granted," said Miami coach
Frank Haith, whose fifth-
seeded Hurricanes (21-9)
meet 12th-seed North
Carolina State (15-15)
Thursday in one of four
first-round games.
"If we are in, then we are
improving our seeding. If
we're not, then we're going to

LCCC: Scholarships to be honored


Continued From Page 1B
Tyler Nash walked on
at LCCC, following in the
footsteps of a lot of fellow
Columbia High graduates.
"This is what I looked
forward to," Nash said. "I had
a few options, but I turned
them all down to come here.
Coach Clark said he will
find us somewhere to go,
but I was looking forward to
playing here another year."
Lake City has provided
some reclamation projects,
including current players
Brandon Davis of Lake Butler
and Billy Moran of Live Oak.
"I transferred from Florida
Tech and Coach Clark gave
me a second chance," Davis
said. "I got another chance
from the president. They give
all these kids opportunities.
It happened so fast, it hurt
the kids."
Moran was cut at
Tallahassee Community
College.
"I probably would not have
been taken anywhere," Moran
said. "They took a big chance
on me. Coach Clark kind of
saved me. He gave me my
life back. A lot of teenagers
make bad decisions and need
another chance and he gave
me that."
Kayla Hamalainen, a
sophomore from Canada,


said the Lady Timberwolves
cried together during weight
training.
"It is heartbreaking to
us," Hamalainen said. "The
sophomores now have to say
good-bye to everyone and
the freshmen have to rebuild
somewhere else. Coach
Howard is trying to stay
strong for the team. We still
have our season left."
Sophomore Brooklyn Ross
is from Live Oak.
"I feel bad for the first-
year players," Ross said.
"They turned down schools
to come here and they
expected to play two
years. Now, nothing. I
feel like a lot of people's
lives have been disrupt-
ed. Where is our coach
supposed to go now? We are
her family."
Roberto Perez is one of five
players from Puerto Rico on
the baseball team.
"As a Latin, player, it is
bad for us," Perez said. "We
came here with a purpose
to play baseball and earn an
education. I feel bad for the
Puerto Rican freshmen. It
will be hard for them to find
another college."
Kelvin Clark came from
Redan High School in Atlanta,
where Clark used to coach.


"It is hard," Clark said. "I
worked my butt off to get the
coaches' respect and I have
so much respect for Coach
Clark. Now I can't even finish
my two years here. It is like
they are kicking us out and
nobody even cares. I have to
start all over and learn a new
system."
Hall said the college will
honor the scholarships and
any student athletes who
want to remain in 'school.
These individuals can attend
classes for free through the
remainder of their two-year
scholarship agreement
Sophomore Greg Blake
came to Lake City from
Westerly, R.I.
"When I heard it, I was
absolutely in shock," Blake
said. "I know how much
athletics have done for this
school and for Lake City.
Coach Clark recruited
me and molded me into a
hard-working baseball player.
He set me up for thefuture
and I would definitely not
have had that opportunity
except for him.
"Baseball is a hobby to
some. To us and coach Clark,
it's our life."

SR-25A / US 441 (Marion Avenue) Resurfacing O
From: SR 25 (US 41) to CR-100A E
Lake City, Columbia County, Florida Project


You are invited to attend a Public Information
Meeting to discuss proposed transportation
improvements to SR-25A/US-441 (Marion
Avenue). This meeting will be held on
Thursday, March 20, 2008, at the Florida
Department of Transportation's District Office,
1109 South Marion Avenue, Lake City, Florida
32025.

Doors will open at 4:30 p.m., to allow you time
to review and discuss the exhibits and have
your questions answered by one of our staff.
Then at 6:30 p.m., we will open the floor for
public comments. It is the policy of the Florida
Department of Transportation to prohibit
materials and/or exhibits in our public
workshops, meetings and hearings that are not
the property of the Department. Therefore, no
outside party will be allowed to display or hand
out materials in any of these events.

The proposed improvements will provide
resurfacing and restriping of the existing
roadway, removal of some on-street parking to
allow for extension of left turn lanes at
intersections, and to rebuild sidewalk
wheelchair ramps at street intersections to
meet current-day requirements. Also
proposed is the removal of the school zone at
Malone Street (Epiphany Catholic).

Public participation is solicited without regard
to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion,
disability or family status. Persons who require
special accommodations under the Americans
with Disabilities Act or persons who require
translation services (free of charge) should

REQUEST FOR COMMENTS
USDA Forest Service
Osceola National Forest
Osceola Ranger District
Upper Suwannee Basin Analysis Area
Prescribed Burning Proposal
Columbia County, Florida
Pursuant to 36 CFR 215.5, District
Ranger Ivan Green requests comments
on the proposed project listed above.
We have completed the environmental
assessment (EA), which describes
the continued use of regular,
human-ignited prescribed burning in the
Suwannee Upper Basin Analysis area
for the restoration and maintenance of
endemic plant communities occurring
in the Osceola National Forest.
Although Forest Compartments within
the Suwannee Analysis Area have been
incorporated into the prescribed burning
program previously, a new EA has
been prepared because of the size of the
project area and to ensure that the
environmental effects of prescribed
burning, as well as the effects of fire
exclusion, are considered and
documented. This proposal, if approved,
would not affect the parameters or.
criteria used to evaluate appropriate'
burning conditions under the current
prescribed burning program.
The analysis provides a disclosure of
the potential environmental effects
of the proposed action and other
alternatives. The result of this analysis is
available for the 30-day public review
and comment.
Comments concerning this proposed
action must be postmarked or received
within 30 days beginning the day after
publication of this notice in the Lake
City Reporter. The date of this
publication is the exclusive means for
determining the timing of the 30-day
comment period, which includes
Saturday, Sundays, and Federal holi-
days. However, if the 30-day period
ends on a Saturday, Sunday, or Federal
holiday, comments will be accepted until
the end of the next Federal working day
(11:59 p.m.). Comments can be sent by'
regular mail to Ivan Green, District
Ranger, Osceola National Forest, P.O.
Box 70, Olustee, Florida, 32072. Oral:
or hand-delivered comments must be
received at the Osceola Ranger District
Office, 11 miles east of Lake City,
Florida on U.S. Highway 90 within our
normal business hours of 7:30 a.m to
4:00 p.m, Monday through Friday,
excluding federal holidays. Additional
