150th

kickoff

banquet

sells out
Tickets to Jan. 15
event at LCCC no
longer available.
By JEFF M. HARDISON
jhardison@lakecityreporter. com
The first event to start a
year of Lake City celebrat-
ing 150 years as a metropo-
lis is still open to all comers,
but tickets to the banquet
that night are no longer for
sale.
The city starts celebrat-
ing its 150th anniversary on
Jan. 15 with a noon event in
Olustee Park, which is open
,to all and is free. This 30- to
60-minute event will include
raising of the sesquicenten-
nial flag, singing by a com-
munity choir, a speech and
free cake.
People who do not have a
ticket to the Jan. 15 banquet
at Lake City Community
College, however, have
missed their, opportunity
to be part of this historic
event.
The larger and more
expensive kickoff event
is $50-a-plate at LCCC. It
combines the annual Lake
City-Columbia County
Chamber of Commerce
Banquet and the kickoff
event for the sesquicenten-
nial.

Executive Committee
Chairman Stephen Witt,
and members Dewey
Weaver, Harvey Campbell-,
Paulette Lord and Jackie

Water project takes direct route through county commission


County awards fire
services loan to
Prosperity Bank
By MICHAEL MITSEFF
mmitseff@lakecityreporter.comrn
The 2008 Fire Services
Capital Loan financing pro-
posal was awarded to low
bidder Prosperity Bank for
its 20-year 4.29 percent fixed
rate loan.
Only fixed rate proposals
were considered by county


staff, County Manager Dale
Williams said at Tuesday's
meeting of the Columbia
County Board of County
Commissioners.
Also, the Ellisville Utility
Project committee appointed
by the board of county com-
missioners recommended
to the board the shortest
distribution route that would
quickly establish a customer
base for its water project
"What we are doing now
is getting to the service


area in the shortest route,"
said committee member
Dist. 3 Commissioner Jody
DuPree. "Then we are also
bringing in a service area
that includes the northside
of 1-75 that way we can
get service to the most peo-
ple in the .shortest amount
of route."
The route for the distri-
bution lines would imme-
diately supply water to the
residents on the northside
and southside of Interstate


75.
"My recommendation to
this board is before they
go any further with any
awards that we do a new
cost Pro Forma," Williams
said. "There are a number
of options for running the
distribution lines and they
each have pros and cons, so
we'll make sure that the cost
estimates are as accurate as
possible as it relates to all of
the options."
The cost analysis is need-


ed because depending on
the routes chosen there has
to be a pay back of the loan
to construct the project,
Williams said, adding that
the economy has changed
drastically since the original
cost analysis was done,
"When you apply thp cost
analysis to each of the distri-
bution options how does
it look today as compared to
how it looked in 2006?"
The board requested
all the numbers updated


and presented at its Jan. 15
meeting to see if the project
now has some cost in it that
exceeds what was originally
expected and, if so, does
it need to be scaled back?
Williams said.

request from Columbia
County Fire Chief Tres
Atkinson to change an
earlier request for the pur-
chase of a ladder truck for

While some buyers
know the Latin term
"caveat emptor" means
"let the buyer beware,"
another saying is also
true, "caveat venditor,"
which is Latin for "let the
seller beware."
In one case where a
check "bounced," the
seller, was a participant
in the Treasure Hunters
Roadshow, which was in
Lake City from Dec. 2
through Dec. 6.
A woman known as
"J., Parsons" signed an
$85 Treasure Hunters
Roadshow check to Bobby
Pafford, 44, of Lake City
on Dec. 3.
The check is on a Chase
Bank account in Illinois
and it "bounced," because
of insufficient funds,
according to a stamp on
the front of the returned
check.
Pafford sold the "trea-
sure hunters" two antique
swords for $85, he said.
"They weren't even my
swords," he said. "I sold
them for a friend and gave
him the money."
Pafford lost another
$30 from a bank charge
for giving his bank a bad
check, he said.
Telephone calls from
the Lake City Reporter
to the Athens, Ill., home
office of the operation on
Dec. 23, 24 and 26 brought
no explanation.
Treasure Hunters
Roadshow owner Paul
Robertson returned a call
on Dec. 29.
Robertson said a small,
number of checks did


- F ,*l.


not clear from the Lake
City event, and he did not
know why. He did send
Pafford payment for the
check, the $30 banking
fee and a little extra for
the inconvenience.
This payment was sent
via Western Union by wire
on Tuesday, Robertson
said.
"We have" been doing
these shows since 1995,"
Robertson said. "We've
done between 1,600 and
1,700 shows in the United
States and Canada. We
always make good on our
purchases."
The "treasure hunt"
in early December was,
held in Lake City at the
Country Inn and Suites,
350 S.W. Florida Gateway
Drive.
"If there is any other
person whose check did
not clear," Robertson said,
."please ask them to call
us at (217) 636-7900."
The Treasure Hunt
Roadshow is not the
Antique Roadshow, which
is seen on television, and
it is not connected to the
Public broadcast Service.
Florida law shows that
any person who know-
ingly issues a worthless
check may be prosecut-
ed. Depending on the
amount of the check, it is
either a misdemeanor or
a felony.
A person is presumed to
have the intent to defraud
another person if he or she
has knowledge of insuf-
ficient funds in the drawee
bank unless the check
writer pays the holder of
the worthless check the
face amount of the check
plus a service charge for


if the person fails to make
good on the bad check,
the information is sent to
the Live Oak office, which
is the center for the cir-
cuit that covers Columbia,-
Dixie, Hamilton, Lafayette,'
Madison, Suwannee and
Taylor counties.
A staff member in that
office notifies the check-'
writer and gives them',-
number of days. If pay-:
ment is not made,' -
summons is issued and
the person must appear
before a judge or an arrest;
warrant is issued.
Once the State
Attorney's Office becomes
involved, there is a fee.
For an $85 check, the fee
is $30, Stock said.
The State Attorney's-
Office wants victims, to
receive money they have
been shortchanged by bad
checks. The case remains
in the civil realm until a
certain point, and then it
becomes a criminal mat-
ter, Stock said.

$477,458 and a service unit
for $154,000 was approved
by the board.
Atkinson sai4 in a letter
'to the board that he instead
would like to purchase two
four-door custom pumper/
tankers that would better
suit CCFD operations.
Atkinson said that if the
county placed the order
before Dec. 31, it would save
$45,912 when purchased
through the Florida sheriffs
office association.
In other business, Waste
Pro requested from the
county a Consumer Price
Index increase and a Fuel
Adjustment Request
Williams said that Waste Pro
is entitled to a Consumer Price
Index adjustment on its rate
because ifs in the contract


The board decided to
postpone its decision until
its Jan. 15 meeting, but it
denied Waste Pro's request
for a fuel rate adjustment
Waste Pro also requested
that it be allowed to dispose
of refuse from Hamilton
County in the Winfield Solid
Waste Facility, but the board
denied its request
Also, the board approved
the text amendment revising
Article 8 of the Flood Damage
Prevention Regulations of the
county's Land Development
Regulations pertaining to the
Flood Insurance Study and
Flood Insurance Rate Map.
The minor revisions will
allow the residents to con-
tinue to participate in the

Program, Williams said.

the remaining tickets are

There also will be no tick-

There will be other events
throughout 2009 to herald the
150th birthday of the city.
In other news from the
Sesquicentennial Executive
Committee meeting on
Tuesday, the committee
decided:
Signed and numbered


prints of the logo created
by Duffy Soto will sell for
$10 each. There are only
150 of these, and Soto said
any that are unsigned or

Announced that the
committee will put up
$5,000 as seed money for

funding for the mural
will come from private
sponsors.

OUR
OPINION


Prescription

economics

a statewide

resource

N T one person today
has the cure for
our current eco-
nomic ills, but Gov.
Charlie Crist's
recent dose of support for a
statewide prescription drug
plan could help more than a few
people in Columbia County.
The Florida Discount Drug
Card has been in place since
December 2007, but participa-
tion in the free program has
significantly lagged behind the
eligible number of individuals
and families.
In today's economy, that
doesn't make sense. While the
program isn't for everyone, it
is a way for individuals older
than 60 and families with
incomes less than 300 percent
of the Federal Poverty Level
- or.$63,600 for a family of
four to help pay prescription
drug costs.
In Columbia County, the
program is especially signifi-
cant because it can help those
individuals receiving Medicare
Part D a substantial portion'
of out population fill in the
coverage gaps in their plans.
It will also help another sub-
stantial part of our community:
families who find themselves
economically challenged.
Crist is right to rally behind
this program. In the past year,
this plan has saved Florida
consumers $1.9 million and
has helped tens of thousands
of people obtain prescription
drugs they might oLherwise
have done without.
Thafts good medicine for
those who qualify.

One mammoth enterprise


In Ukraine and Siberia,'
vestiges of circular huts
with foundations of huge
interlocked jawbones
have been discovered.
Apparently, the bones of
the woolly mammoth were a
common building material in
Paleolithic times. Archaeologists
figure that the tusks of the animal
probably supported a covering of
mammoth hides sewed together.
A mammoth-hunting culture
appears to have thrived for tens
of thousands of years, until the
huge creatures a type of
elephant adapted to extreme cold
by a thick coat of fur became
extinct, some 10,000 years ago.
Indeed, much else of mam-
moths still exists as well,
including well-preserved frozen
remains found in bogs. Siberian


tribal peoples have traded with
China in mammoth ivory since
medieval times. The tusks of
the creature were longer and
thinner than those of modern
elephants, frequently exceeding
10 feet, spiraling outward before
curving in to opposed points.
If there were ever an extinct
animal that might be a good
candidate for cloning, the mam-
moth, with tons of available
DNA, is it. Researchers say
that its genome will be mapped
out soon and, in 10 or 20 years,
mammoths (the word is derived
from an ancient Russian word
for the animal) could once again
bestride the earth.
The question is, what will we
do with them. Well, we could let
them roam. Global warming or
not, there's still plenty of sparsely


inhabited frozen wasteland in.
Arctic and sub-Arctic Siberia,
Alaska and Canada and plenty
of mammoths' favored grasses
and gorses, based on evidence col-
lected from their frozen forebears.
There are, in fact, climate
researchers who maintain, on
the basis of diminished sunspot
activity and other factors, that,
rather than warming, the earth
is probably headed for pro-
longed cooling. This would be
splendid news for the new mam-
moths, since it could increase
their range, which, back in
the day, extended to France
and Spain. Would humans see
them as a new source of protein
adapted to "climate change"?
Some descendents might prefer
that to tofu.

With a little

help from

my friends
Like a good
portion of
Americans, I still
make New Year's
Resolutions.
Some work out better than
others, and some are cer-
tainly more important than
others. But this year, the
thought of my own person-
al goals led me to wonder
what my friends are up to.
The power of the
Internet In an e-mail blast
I asked people I knew from-
around the country what if
anything, they resolved to
do during the New Year. Of
course, a few of their sug-
gestions, like cutting back
on pecan pie and morning
bacon, are simply undo-
able.
But more than .a few of
the others offered some
life advice I'm proud to
share. In no particular
order:
1. Quit smoking. If you
smoke, this is probably
somewhere on your list If
you don't smoke, its prob-
ably on your list for every-
one who does.
2. Cut back on the bulge.
Let's face it, nearly two-
thirds of Americans are
clinically overweight or
obese. Not much wiggle
room here.
3. Make time to exercise.
The physical benefits are
wonderful, but the mental
benefits are astounding.
I spoke about this with a
Lake City friend the other
day and he agreed: If
you're capable, try walking
a mile a day and watch the
stress melt away.
4. Quit drinking. OK, this
may b'e a little extreme,
but as the Roman drama-
tist Publius Terentius Afer
said sometime in the 2nd
century B.C., all things in
moderation.
5. Get out of debt Dare
to be different from your
neighbors and reduce the
money stress in your life.
6. Learn something new.
Surely there's something
that's interested you your
whole life, and something
you've always wanted to
learn more about Maybe
this is the year to get
around to it
7. Increase the time
you spend with family and
friends. Working to live has
been replaced.by living to
work in our culture. But
what would it be like if we
had just one more family
dinner each week, or unex-
pectedly brought fresh
flowers to a friend's house?
8. Volunteer your time.
The opportunities here are
endless, but one thing I've
found is that one of the eas-
iest ways to make yourself
feel better is to make some-
one else feel better. Sounds
selfish, but this is a good
kind of self-absorption.
9. Enjoy life. Or at least
enjoy life a little bit more
we all have a little space
for this, don't we?
10. And my favorite,
from my Lake City friend,
Patrick: Make my family
and those people around
me happy. Doesn't this tie
the other nine together?
New Year's Resolutions.
Like giving something up
for Lent, they're easy to
make and difficult to keep.
But with perseverance, I
resolve that even the most
formidable of resolutions
will be kept.

Kick off a

new year
I t use to be that
playing a bowl
game on the first
day of the New Year
meant something.
With a bowl game on
the television just about
every day, playing a New
Year's bowl just doesn't
have the same flare.
It use to be a
celebration of a long
season gone right Now,
it's a celebration of
mediocrity.
Just take a look at the
New Year's day bowls. It
all starts off with South
Carolina taking on Iowa
in.the Outback Bowl.
Excuse me if two teams.
with a combined 15-9
record doesn't get my
football juices flowing.
How about a battle of
: unranked teams in the
Gator bowl? If Nebraska
and Clemson would have
met in the 80s it might of'
meant something. Now,
it's just another reason to
turn off the television.
The day gets a little
better between lunch and
dinner as Georgia takes
on Michigan State and
Penn State takes on USC,
however, you might lose
your collective lunch and
dinner if you tune into
the Orange Bowl pitting
Cincinnati and Virginia
Tech.
How do these two
-. teams deserve a BCS
birth over Boise State or
.' TCU? It's a sham, but alas,,
- "' you pay fdr the picks:
South Carolina will fall
to the best running back
in college football. Watch
out for Shonn Greene.
on the next level. He's a
beast of a running back
that averaged more than
140 yards on the ground
per game this season.
With 1729 yards, Greene
should make general
manager's mouths water.
Nebraska has been
playing solid defense
behind new coach Bo
Pelini this season, and
that should continue
against an over-hyped
Clemson squad.
Georgia is simply too
good to be playing in the
Capital One Bowl, and
it will show against an
out-matched Michigan
SState squad. Look for
Knowshon Moreno to
have a monster final
game.
In the game of the bowl
season, Joe Paterno will
mark up one more victory
showing the nation that,
the Nittany Lions are the
most underrated team in
the country.
Cincinnati and Virginia
Tech should put the
nation to sleep. If you're
able to stay awake, you'll
see the Hokies pull away
in this snoozer.
On Friday, Texas Tech
will slide by Ole Miss ...
Kentucky will pick up a
Swin over East Carolina...
Alabama should give the
\Utes of Utah their first
,loss.
S\ Check back Saturday
.for the final picks
j before the BCS national
championship game.

'Wolves out at home


Sports programs
dropped at
college in 2008.
Lake City
Community College s
decision to drop sports
was one of the top three
Lake City Reporter
sports stones for 2008.
By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
The collapse was
complete for Lake City
Community College sports
in the spring of 2008.
It was not on, the
playing fields, but in the
administration offices
where the decision was
made to cancel sports at
the school.
A possible decrease
in state funding was the
rallying cry to raze the
programs.
Sports for the
Timberwolves goes back
45 years with the start of a
men's basketball program.
That sport ended in
the mid-1990s, along with
a just-started women's
- basketball program.
Women's volleyball and
men's cross country also
came andwent at LCCC.
The school was clinging
to its storied softball
program, resurgent under
coach Donna Howard,
and a baseball program
that had gained
prominence under coach
Tonr Clark.
A Women's golf program
also was on the books.
Lake City Community
College sports has
produced two bona
fide legends in softball

Lake City Community College coach Tom Clark (center) slides into home plate during a celebration after the Timberwolves
secured a playoff spot with a 10-4 victory over Seminole Community College on Apr. 29, in Lake City.


coach Jean Williams and
basketball coach Joe
Fields.
Both are members
of Florida Community
College halls of fame.
Fields had a 512-190
record in 22 years at the
* school with one state
championship and a
third-place national
finish.
Williams retired in
1994 on the heels of 17
consecutive Mid-Florida


PREP ROUNDUP

Tigers defeat St.

Francis, Suwannee


Columbia finishes
third in Christmas
tournament.
From staff reports

The Columbia High boy's
soccer team picked up a
win on Monday against St
Francis, 6-0 before closing
out the tournament with a
third place finish 'against
Suwannee, 3-1.
The Tigers rebounded
from an opening loss to
defeat St. Francis after an
opening half of 3-0.
Geoff Beardsley scored
the Tigers first goal with
an assist from Chris
Beardsley.
Brad Carpenter would
score on an unassisted
goal before Jorge Carrillo
finished out the first half
with an assist from Geoff


Beardsley.
Geoff Beardsley would
also open up the second
half scoring with an assist
from Chase Stamper.
The Tigers pulled ahead
5-0 with Jordan Lehman
scoring on a goal with the
assist from Brad Carpenter.
Jimmy Rukab closed out
the Tigers scoring with a
goal on an assist fromlan
Rodriguez.
On Tuesday, the Tigers
closed out the tourna-
ment with a 3-1 win against
Suwannee.
"We played really well
during the last three games
of the tournament," coach
Trevor Tyler said. 'We had
really good defense, and
Cameron Harper had a-
great final game."
Carpenter scored the
PREP continued on 4B


Conference titles, eight
state championships and
seven national titles in slow
pitch softball.
The LCCC softball field
and complex is named in
her honor.
The Lady Timberwolves
continued to shine in the
move to fast pitch. There
were a couple more state
titles and the national
championship in 2001.
Clark was on the way
to legendary status. He


entered the 2008 season
No. 25 on the win list
for active junior college
coaches.
In his 14 seasons, the
Timberwolves won 30
or more games 12 times,
highlighted by a 49-9
record in 1999 when LCCC
-was 27-1 in conference
play.
Lake City made five trips
to the FCCAA playoffs.
In a final act of defiance,
both Lake City teams made


the state playoffs in 2008.
The Lady 'Wolves
returned to the tournament
field for the first time since
2004. The baseball team
won its final three games
to sew up a runner-up spot
to state.
An ancillary action to the
cancellation of sports was
the closing of the Granger
Hall dorms, which housed
close to 70 students in
the spring, and the food
service program.

GOLF REPORTS


Blitz bonanza last week


The men golfers took
advantage of the holiday
schedule to play three
blitzes last week.
In Friday competi-
tion, Dennis Crawford
closed the front 9 with
three straight birdies en
route to a 32-35-67 for a
decisive five-stroke victory
over Mike Jarrell and Jim
Carr.
The scorecard gave
Jarrell solo second for a
par on the last hole.
It looked like Crawford
had made a clean sweep
with four skins, until Carr
posted one winner.
A new face made the win-
ner's circle in the Saturday


SOUTHERN
OAKS
Ed Goff


blitz when Ronnie Keller
played steady golf all day to
finish +8 for a single-stroke
win over J. D. Dedge.
Jonathan Allen took third
at +6.
Skins were abundant
with Dennis Crawford,
Steve Thomas and Eli Witt
taking two each, and Ron
Bennett, J. D. Dedge and
Scott Kishton carding one
each.
The blitz moved to a full
handicap individual format
for the third contest of the


week.
Eli Witt showed he
approved of the change,
finishing with a net 68 to
edge out fast closing J. D.
Dedge at 69.
Bobby Simmons, con-
tinued his recent steak of
strong play with a 37 on
the front nine to lead part-
ners Bob McNamara, Jim
Bell, and Howard Whitaker
to four skins in Good Old
Boys play.
But it wasn't enough to
overcome Merle Hibbard's
39-39-78 that boosted team
mates Merle Hibbard, Ed
Snow, Carl Jones and Dan
Stephens to six team skins
and the win.
