Boswell, Whitworth
cleared extradition;

By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Mary Boswell and her son,
Larry Craig Whitworth, will
face felony murder charges in
the death of Jerry Gifford in
Columbia Counnty
Boswell, 47, and Whitworth,
29 whoi are being held in the
Cumberland County (Tenn.) Jail
without bond, had their extra-
" edition hear-
ing Thursday
morning and
neither fought
extradition for


.by his relative.
According to information from
the Columbia County Sheriff's
Office, at about 4:15 p.m. deputies
received a call for a possible shoot-
ing on Howard Avenue. When depu-
ties arrived they found Steve Siver ,
30, 201 NW Howard Ave., with what
appeared to be a gunshot wound
to his right arm. Authorities named
Alfred Mershon, 70, 198 NW Laverne
Ave., as the alleged shooter. Siver's


wife is Mershon's granddaughter.
Reports indicate Siver was shot in
the arm with a shotgun, but his wound
did not appear to be life-threatening.
Siver was taken to a local hospital
and no other details about his injuries,
were released by press time.
Detectives with the Columbia
County Sheriff's Office continued
their investigation Thursday night,
but preliminary investigations indi-
cated the two men were arguing over


money owed to Mershon.
Mershon was still at the scene when
law enforcement officers arrived and
he was arrested by sheriff's office
deputies.
Mershon was booked into the
Columbia County Jail and charged
with aggravated battery. He was not
injured in the fray and was taken into
custody without incident.
He is being held on a $25,000
bond.

Council could approve

$222,000 airport overhaul


By JOHNNA PINHOLSTER
jpinholster@lakecityreporter.com
City Council will decide the
fate of a projected $222,000
overhaul of the Lake City
Municipal Airport terminal
area at Monday's meeting.
The city's airport commit-
tee approved the resolution
on Thursday for Passero
Associates to begin initial
work on the project.
Council'sfinalapprovalcould
put the plan into motion.
If approved, Passero


Associates will prepare plans
and bidding documents to
build a general aviation center
at the airport.
The center will consist of
a more than 5,000 square-
feet terminal building, an
improved entrance road, new
airport entrance signage and
parking lot.
Airport Manager Tom
Sawyer said funds provided by
the FAA, Florida Department
of Transportation and other
grants will be used to fund the
construction.


In other news:
* The airport will lease two
refuelers from Ascent Aviation
Group, pending council's
approval
* The airport will pro-
vide fuel to Forest Service/
Contractor aircraft at a 5 per-
cent discount instead of a
10 percent discount, pending
council's approval.
R The airport will be reim-
bursed for two fuel tankers
used to fuel Forest Service air-
craft at the end of the-wildfire
season, Sawyer said.


Center urges hurricane preparedness


By MICHAEL MITSEFF
mmitseff@lakecityreporter.com
With the approach of the
2008 hurricane season,
Columbia County Emergency
Management,JointInformation
Center . Protocol held its
first hurricane preparedness
meeting Thursday morning.
Among the topics dis-
cussed was the necessity to
warn residents not to become
complacent and to provide for
themselves during the first
72-hours after an event.
"Our memories are short
and we haven't been person-
ally affected (by a hurricane)
in a while, and in our case
it's been a couple of years


now," said Harvey Campbell,
Columbia County Public
Information Officer.
"We don't want people to
forget that there are neces-
sary elements of prepared-
ness such as having enough
non-perishable food, water
and a radio and batteries to
last at least 72-hours."
Campbell said that he knows
money is tight right now but
making sure that people pre-
pare for at least a 72-hour stay
in their homes is necessary.
Also of interest to resi-
dents was the discussion that
emergency personnel would
not venture into the storm
when sustained winds reach
tropical storm strength, or


39 miles per hour.
Implementation of the
stand-down policy is still being
discussed.
"People don't want to
procrastinate and leave
themselves in harms way,"
Campbell said.
Recommendations are for
residents to err on the side of
caution and take action well
before winds reach tropical
storm strength.
Also discussed was the
affect a mass evacuation of
Jacksonville would have on
Lake City, especially since
Interstate 10 would be con-
verted to 4-westbound lanes
to facilitate evacuation under
certain conditions.

LETTER TO

Energy crisis
affects everything
To the Editor:
Our government seems
to be quite content to let the
price of gasoline and oil rise
to unprecedented levels. Not
that they could do a lot about
this, but they at least could try
to do a thorough investigation
as to the true reason. This
does not mean having a panel
of senators or representatives
sit behind a desk and "roast"
the oil company executives
so they can basically promote
their own political agenda
by appearing to be the "hero
of the common American."
But, an in-depth investigation
needs to be completed; CIA
type stuff. For example,
follow a particular barrel of
oil from the time it leaves the
well head, until it is refined
and sent to the local gasoline
station. Look for built in
excessive profit and fraud;
review all records.
Secondly, look at the
commodities market. Find out
if the traders, domestically
and globally, are on the secret
payrolls of the oil companies
and if they basically receive
healthy bonuses to bid up
the price of oil. Could they
possibly be tied to global
terrorist organizations that
have a goal of weakening or
collapsing the U.S. and world


THE EDITOR

economy?
The demand for oil has to
be down, even worldwide.
Most Americans, and many
American industries, have cut
back on energy use, as have
other large oil consuming
nations, including China.
'Pure economics have made
it so; not enough money in
the family budget; necessities
first, no gasoline. Therefore,
if the oil producing countries
have not lowered production
quotas, where is all the extra
crude oil? OPEC themselves
have said the price of a barrel
of oil is $40 to $50 higher due
to nothing but speculation.
Remember the "Daisy Chain"
theory of the 1970s. Oil was
hidden and held, creating an
artificial shortage, until the
price substantially increased.
Then the oil was released at a
substantially higher price.
If something is not done
about the global oil industry
literally sucking the very
lifeblood from America and
other nations of the world, we
will be a state like Russia was
back in the 1950s and 1960s.
Everyone will be dependent
on the government for
everything, especially basic
needs such as food, clothing
and housing. The dollar will
be worthless. Further, does
the oil industry realize that if
the dollar becomes worthless,
the billions in the bank will be


a5 -


* -e
o


0 m al. dos


. .-.


worthless too? No consumer,
no market, no economy, no
dollar!
The energy crisis is
affecting everything
SAmericans do. Should we
abandon our research and
efforts on becoming energy
independent? Not at all, we
should continue full steam.
There should be a program
to dwarf the lunar landing
efforts of the 1960s. With the
stroke of a pen Congress and
the president can start this
effort. Have you heard much
from our current presidential
candidates on addressing the
energy issue? Not really and
that is a shame. Solving our
energy dependence problems
should be an all American
effort. This would mean even
some of those oil company
profits would be needed
to reach that goal, even if
it means an energy source
other than oil. Do not make
the already overburdened
taxpayer foot the entire bill.
Is there is a constitutional
doctrine established by
Supreme Court rulings
that states where there is a
"Clear and Present Danger"
to National Security that is
proven, that drastic measures
can be instituted? Wake
up America. We may have
reached that point.

uncounted number of private school
and home schooled seniors in Columbia
County are also graduating.
For these seniors, graduation is
both the capstone of their childhood
education and the cornerstone for
their adult lives. Many, if not most, will
go on from high school graduation to
either associates or bachelors degrees,
or at a minimum enroll for additional
class work and training. Meanwhile, a
substantial number will enter directly
into the workplace, beginning careers
and helping build their communities.
Lake City, Fort White and all of
Columbia County and North Florida
need educated and motivated young
people to keep this area moving
forward. Creating opportunities for
these new graduates so that they will
settle and invest their lives and energies
here is one of the key challenges our
community faces..
The Lake City Reporter,
lakecityreportercom and Currents
magazine congratulate the members
of the high school class of 2008. Make
the most of the future, for it is now in
your hands.

More than 130 Fort White seniors walked across the stage to receive their high school diploma Thursday evening. 'I'm very proud of
them, it's a huge accomplishment' principal Keith Hatcher said.


FORT WHITE: More than 130 seniors collect diplomas

Continued From Page 1A


Principal Keith Hatcher said the
2007-2008 graduating class was a very
smart group of students.
"I'm very proud of them," he said. "It's
a huge accomplishment because there are
a lot of distractions out there, and if these
kids are not careful, those distractions can
overcome what their goals should be. This
is a great day for these kids."
He said what the students always need
to remember is that, no matter what
people tell them, they can accomplish
anything they want.
"There is something out there for
everyone," Hatcher said. "There are kids
who are going to do well working with
their hands, kids who will do well in aca-
demics, kids who will go on to become
lawyers and doctors. I say set'goals high
and don't listen to anyone who tells them


they can't accomplish those goals."
Graduating seniors were going through
a range of emotion during the ceremony.
Many were smiling, some were in tears,
and others had yet to process the thought
that they didn't have to come to school
today.
Senior Dustin Howard was one of the
latter students and said he was still trying
to. take it all in and reflect on his career
at FWHS.
"Just going through it all, you can see
that all of it was worthwhile," he said.
"You know, studying a little more for that
test, taking a harder class, and now that
it's here, you see it was worth it."
Senior Sabrina Culpepper said gradua-
tion was one more step in life.
''.. "It's a mile'mrarker that everyone
looks forward to," she said. She, said the


previous few weeks had been difficult,
watching many friends make plans to
leave Columbia County to further their
education or seek jobs.
Like many, Culpepper will be leaving
early next year to enlist in the Navy.
"I had scholarships to go to college,
but this just felt important to me," she
said.
Graduation for senior Jessica Clark
was a special to her and her family - she
said she was the first of her mother's chil-
dren to graduate. She moved from Fort.
White before high school, attended Santa
Fe High School before finishing her high
school career at FWHS.
"I've just been through so much and
moved around a lot," she said. "I'm ready
for the tears tonight. I'm relieved, excited
and very proud."

By MICHAEL MITSEFF
mmitseff@lakecityreporter.com

Columbia County residents
Perry Little and Bryan R.
Richards, along with Hamilton
County resident Marcel "Bo"
Beauchemin, were inter-
viewed Thursday afternoon
by County Manager Dale
Williams for the position of
public works director.
The public works depart-
ment is largely responsible
for maintaining the county
roadway system, officials said.
Current director Hoyle
Crowder said he's had
enough.
"When I came on with
the county, I was going to
work 10 years, that was my
plan," Crowder said. "I will be
62 next April and that's when I
plan on retiring."
Joining Williams for the
interview process Thursday
were Dewey Weaver,
chairman of the board of
county commissioners, and

Perry Little (from left), Marcel 'Bo' Beauchemin and Bryan R. Richards interviewed Thursday for public
works director. Current director Hoyle Crowder plans to retire in April 2009.


Commissioner Stephen
Bailey, along with Crowder
and Michelle Crummitt,
director of human resources
and County Engineer John.
Colson.
Beauchemin was director
of roads and bridges in South
Carolina for nearly 12 years
and also in Brevard County
from 1989 to 1996.
"In Florida, I was project
coordinator and manager in
the roads and bridges depart-
ment," Beauchemin said.
"Now my wife and I live in
Jennings."


Beauchemin said that if he
is hired, he hopes to bring a
fresh perspective to the job.
Richards, a 1975 graduate
of Columbia High School, says
he will bring an ability to work
with the board of county com-
missioners and to listen to the
concerns of the residents in
Columbia County.
"I'll have an open-door and
open-phone policy," Richards
said. "Anything can get
better."
The next three appli-
cants will be interviewed at
9 a.m. today in the county


annex offices.
Williams said that the
process should conclude at
the board's, next meeting on
Thursday where the success-
ful applicant will be named.
Current long-time public
works employee Little, said
he'd like to help the people
he works with every day, who
like him have been with the
department a long time.
"I've been with the county
for 30-years and I'd like to see
some improvements for the
people of this county," Little
said.

books tor a dollar each, and
a sixth one for free.
You know, I buy a lot of
books, Ithought tomyself,
so I'd assuredly buy four
more in the next two years.
So what if the quality of
book is, well, lacking? The
books are cheap and I need
books.
It's time for an AA-like
confession - my name is
Troy Roberts and I have
a book-buying problem. I
can't stop myself. Every
time I go into a book store,
I usually walk out with at
least one item under my
arm and a feeling of regret
about not buying something
else that I wanted.
I like to read. My wife tells
me that the local libraries
are a great place to rent
books, you know, for free,
but I've got a small problem,
you see. Books I read have
to be in pristine condition
- no dog ears, no bent
pages, no spine creases, no
marks. My wife thinks I'm
crazy. My mom would think
I'm crazy too if it wasn't for
the fact that my dad has the
exact same problem.
I think my biggest thing
with buying books is that
I just like to have my own,
personal little library. You
know, you finish one, place
it back on the shelf, browse
around and then pull the
one you want to read.
And my biggest problem
is I go through spells
where I' read the first
20 pages of five or six
books before I find the one
I want to read. Renting a
couple of books from the
library every other day to
appease this would drive
me nuts.
It feels a lot better to get
it off of my chest. Anyone
want to be the person that I
call when I get the urge to
buy a book?

Can video games improve health?


WASHINGTON - Why
fight the proliferation of video
games if you can use them to
improve the nation's health?
Health researchers are
looking at ways that people's
obsession with video games
might be put to good use.
The Robert Wood Johnson
Foundation announced
Thursday it will give a dozen
research teams up to $200,000
each for studies lasting one to
two years.
The projects will measure
the effects of playing video
games on the young and old.
For example:
* Researchers at Cornell
University will study how a
mobile phone game reward-
ing healthy eating and exer-
cise will influence children's


behavior.
* Researchers


at the


University of Florida will mon-
itor how playing Playstation
2's "Crazy Taxi" affects
perception in the elderly.
* Researchers at the
University of South Carolina
will investigate the potential
for using video games such as
Wii and EyeToy to help people
recover their motor skills after
experiencing a stroke.
For better or worse, video
games teach through rein-
forcement. What health
researchers want to do is
find ways to reinforce healthy
behaviors instead of unhealthy
ones.
"A good game, or a game
where you could actually learn
some skills or develop some
self-confidence could displace
some of the more time-wast-
ing video games that are out
there. That could be a win-win


in many ways," said Debra
Lieberman of the University
of California at Santa Barbara,
who oversees the university's
health games research.
Video games are often seen
as the purview of the young,
but several of the projects
will investigate how adults
can benefit. For example, at
Union College in New York,
researchers will monitor
how participating on a vir-
tual cycling team influences
exercise behaviors and health
outcomes for people age
50 and older.
'The neat thing about a
video game is that it involves
a challenge to reach a goal.
That's why we get hooked on
games. That's why we love to
play them," Lieberman said.
"We're always striving to do
better and better."

to books

bout two
weeks ago, I
did something
I promised
myself I would
never do - I joined a book
club.
And I'm not talking about
one of those where you get
together with four or five
other people and discuss
the full meaning behind
T.S. Eliot's 'The Waste
Land," I mean one of those
"buy five books for $1 each
and only buy four more in

clubs.
Since my last adventure
with Columbia House
more than a decade ago,
I'd sworn that I would
never get involved in
a club where you have
to purchase a required
number of items in a set
number of years. A few
of my friends have had
problems with Columbia
House and the Science
Fiction Book Club over the
years - they never fulfilled
their orders and then the
clubs threatened to ruin'
their credit, so I thought
it best to stay away from
similar situations.

construction work. Parking
will be available at the front of
the stadium. Once that area is
full, motorists will be directed
to park in the Junior-Senior
parking area off of County
Road 252. Once that becomes
full, parking will be available
in the grassy area just east of
the parking lot.
Deputies with the Columbia
County Sheriff's Office will be
on hand to direct traffic and
shuttles will be available for
the handicapped.
Approximately 402 CHS
seniors will graduate, tonight,
including class valedictori-
an Katie Reichert and class
salutatorian Danielle McRae.
Reichert, 18, the daugh-
ter of Dr. Richard and Jill
Reichert, finished first in her
class with a weighted GPA of


4.84. Reichert said being the
class valedictorian was some-
thing she always had aspira-
tions for.
"I just did the best that- I
could and I'm glad that I've
been able to come this far,"
she said. "Itfs a great honor."
Reichert, who was named
to the "A" honor roll for
13 consecutive years, will
attend Duke University in the
fall where she plans to major
in Biology and study Global
Medicine. She plans to further
her education by attending
medical school and training to
become a pediatric oncologist
or cardiologist.
McRae, 18, the daughter
of Christopher and Susan
McRae, is the 2007-2008 class
salutatorian. The current pres-
ident of the school's National


Honor Society, McRae said
she always strived to do the
best and finish at the top of
her class.
"It's something 1 worked
for all 12 years of school," she
said. "I'm pretty pleased with
second place."
McRae will begin her stud-
ies at the University of Florida
during the summer semes-

and a helicopter to locate him.
Law enforcement in
Tennessee spotted Gifford's
truck and attempted to pull
it over, but the driver refused
to stop. A pursuit lasted
about five miles before the


driver crashed the truck, and
Boswell and Whitworth ran
into a nearby wooded area.
Gifford, 59, was found
dead in a pond on his prop-
erty May 21. His truck was
reported missing when his


body was found.
Gifford was last seen alive
by a family friend on May
13 and his wallet was found
a week later on the side of
U.S. Highway 41 in Hamilton
County.


COUNCIL: Takes questions at breakfast


Continued From Page 1A
facility planned for construc-
tion on the Butler Tract prop-
erty kicked off the gathering.
Ward said the contract
to acquire the Butler Tract
should be finalized by the end
of June and that preliminary
engineering on the project
has already begun.
He went on to say that it
would be three to five years
before the plant came on-line.
The further along the city
moves with the development of
the new state-of-the-art facility
the more capacity the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection will release for
the St. Margaret's Street
Wastewater facility, Lee said.
George Miller of Spring
Fresh Cleaning asked how
many people the water treat-
ment plant and the wastewater
plant will be able to support.
While no one on the council
could provide exact numbers,
Robertson said the Price Creek
Water Treatment Plant will be
able to support Lake City and
the expanding community
for the next 20-25 years. The
wastewater facility will be built
-at a 3-million-gallon capacity
with the intention of expan-
sion, the same as the water
treatment facility, he said.
Attorney Bill Haley asked
the council about the status of
the Lake City Fire Department
and whether or not the idea
of consolidating the city and
county departments was still
being discussed.
Lee said that while the
city has asked the county if
it would like to take over fire
service for the entire county,
once again the fire service
within the city and county is
the best it has ever been. He
said county residents may be
hesitant to consolidate fire ser-
vice because their rates would
go up. Currently residential
fire rates for the county are
$73 while the city pays $153.


The rate for the city would
be $212 if the city did not
subsidize the cost for all the
exempted properties located
within the city limits through
the general fund.
James Montgomery asked
the council if they ,had met
with the county to further dis-
cuss the EMS service pay-
ments the county said they are
owed by the city. He went on
to ask if the council believed
the county ,would actually
cease to provide EMS service
within the city on Oct 1.
Robertson said he had not
heard anyone from the county
government publicly state that
the EMS services would be
withheld from city residents
on Oct. 1.
City Attorney Herbert


Darby has been tasked with
finding a legal representative
versed in this area to help the
city decide if its residents actu-
ally are being double taxed for
the service, Witt said.
The city has also yet to see
a breakdown of the expen-
ditures for the county's ad-
valorem taxes as requested by
the city, Robertson said.
