By JEFF M. HARDISON
jhardison@Ilakeci report ter.com
Afour-foot alligator appeared
to be enjoying himself
floating among the
vegetation near the shore
of Lake DeSoto on Tuesday
afternoon.
Gators are common throughout the
67 counties of Florida at tlUs time of
year, according to Karen Parker of the
Florida Fish and Game Commission.


"Lf you've got a puddle, lake or river.
you'll have alligators in springtime in
Florida," she said. "They are coming
out of their winter lethargy. It is mating
season. All the gators are out looking
for love."
Alligators roam from lake to lake at
this time of year, Parker said. People
need to treat them with respect, but not
be overly afraid, she said.
"People freak out." she said. "The
calls jump in the spring. We get
between 15,000 and 18.000 calls a year
about alligators."
If an alligator is longer than 4 feet
and is showing no fear of humans, it
can become considered as a nuisance
alligator, she said. If it is endangering

jhardtson@ilakecit report er.com
More than 2,000 trees and
saplings are scheduled to be
given away to Columbia County
residents for free on the last
Friday in April Arbor Day.
The annual tree give-away is
set for 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April
24 at Memorial Stadium.
Scott .Stewart of Ellianos
Coffee plans to donate 500


one-gallon containers with
Dogwoods in them.
Dwight Stansel Nursery is
donating 1,500 assorted seed-
lings of Green Ash, Dogwood,
Red Maple, Bald Cypress. Live
Oak and Red Cedar.
The Lake City Beautification
Committee is buying '100
each of Southern Magnolia,
American Holly, American
Elm, Red Maple, Red Bud and
Black Walnut from Central
Florida & Timber at $1.50 each.
The committee, in turn, will
give them away.,
The committee is buying 100
Live Oaks from Slay's Trees at


children, pets or livestock, then that is
an emergency.
There are 40 trappers in Florida
authorized to remove nuisance
alligators, she said.
It is illegal to feed or molest alligators
in Florida. The reason not to feed
them is because they lose their fear of
humans, she said.
"Around here, we say, A fed gator is
a dead gator.'" she said.
Even a very small alligator can cause
significant problems if it bites a person,
she said, because of the bacteria in its
mouth.

OUR


OUR
OPINION

Staying

the course

vital to

legislation

Bringing business,
either new or
expanded, into a
Florida county is
important during
any economic climate. But
given the current state of the
economy, the importance of
importing new and expanded
enterprises into a rural county
such as Columbia takes on
increased significance.
This is why the work of
two Columbia County
champions, Sen. Charlie Dean
and Rep. Debbie Boyd, must
not be allowed to languish in
committee.
In their respective chambers
of the Florida Legislature, both
Dean and Boyd have marshaled
an effort to raise a rural
Enterprise Zone in Lake City-
Columbia County.
Unfortunately, the road
to creating this economic
revitalization has potential
to be bogged by committee
after committee long before
it can ever offer enticing tax
advantages and incentives to
existing and new businesses.
Indeed, chances are that
this proposed legislation will
suffer death by committee
unless Dean and Boyd commit
to stay the fight and they
are supported by members
of a local Enterprise Zone
Development Agency tasked
with crafting the local plan.
Dean's application target
date is Dec. 31. Given the pace
of politics iin Ta&lliisse6' 'and
the amount of work to be done
before this proposal reaches
the governor's desk, this time
frame, could prove realistic.
But if Columbia County is
to join Florida's existing 56
rural and urban Enterprise
Zones, it is incumbent upon our
lawmakers to walk their bills
through each and every hurdle.

Public's help is requested for

'Faces of Courage' publication


" Greater love has no
one than this, that he
lay down his life for his
friends."
This quote from
John 15:13 is powerful
in its simplicity and it
speaks deeply to the value of
friendship.
But to our men and women
in the military, this biblical
aphorism is applied with
special significance. Most of us,
surely, will never be asked to
fully fulfill the responsibility of
John's message. Yet those who
serve our nation face this literal
proposition daily. And they do -
so willingly.
During my Navy.years we
were a nation at peace and I was
fortiite never- to have seen
combat. Still, the bonds formed
in the military are strong,
and even from my limited
experience I have no doubt that
there are men and women today
willing to assume the intent of
this verse should their friends
come in harm's way.
The love John writes of
here is the love seen today in
Iraq, Afghanistan, and myriad
other places on and off our
coasts. It is the love that has
been witnessed in every major
conflict or war in which our
military men and women have
been involved.
In May, Lake City Reporter
will pay tribute to these men
and women. In conjunction with
Lake City's sesquicentennial

tribute to our nation's Greatest
Generation, the Reporter
will publish a visual and
written salute to those in our
community who have served
our nation in any military
capacity during times of war or
peace.
To do this, we need your
help.
Because our intention is
to include as many faces
as possible in this special
publication, I'm asking you
to submit a photo or photos
of family or friends, living or
deceased, who have served or
are currently serving in the
military.
Between now and the
submission deadline of April
17, I'm asking you to pull out
the family albums, dig through
the dormer and approach Aunt
Mabel to cull photos of the
veterans and currently serving
military members in your life.
There is no charge and no
forms to fill out to submit a
photo. These don't have to be
pretty pictures, or pictures in
tip-top condition. I expect that

the past, as far back as World
War I, as well as the present

assured, we will handle them as
if they were are own and we will
hold them safely for return.
It is our intent that a photo
of every veteran or current
member of the military
submitted to the Reporter will
find its way into the publication.
There are a number of ways
you can get your pictures to us:

But no matter how you get
the photos to us, it is important
that you include your name and
a phone number, in addition to
a bit of information about the
photo who's in it and when
and where it was taken if that
information is known.
We're calling this publication
"Faces of Courage," because
that's exactly how we view the
men and women who protect
our nation.
But first we need your
assistance to supply those
faces to us.

What's in
a word?
Lake City Reporter
Publisher Todd Wilson
presents Georgianne

certificate to Publix on
Wednesday. Robinson
won the certificate when
her winning' entry was

advertisements and
submitted their finished

He and Ralph Tyre played
together those years and
made the college recruiting
rounds, where Cox decided
on Variderbilt. The perfect
mark came in their senior:
season.
"We played in a bowl
game in Panama City two
years before and lost 7-0,"
Tyre said. "When we. went
undefeated our senior year,
we couldn't get anybody to
play us. I blocked for Gene.
His number was.33 and we
were trying to:get him that
number of touchdowns."
'Ted Johns also played
' football and was on the
track team with Cox.
"He was quite a ball play-
er," Johns said. "I guess
you would call it 'blood
and guts.' He was a run-,
ning back and he didn't
know what stop meant. If
you tackled him once, you
would know what I mean.
"As far as a high school
football player, he could
play with anybody today on
that level."

"He was on the board
of directors from 1983 to
1993," Atkinson said of
Williams.' "During that
time he was president for
four annual terms. He led
the organization through
a decade of substantial
growth in its infrastructure
and its services."
Beyond his professional
relationship with Williams,
Atkinson remembers him
as an inspirational man.
He noted that this man
was among the "Greatest
Generation."
"To me during the
10-plus years I spent., with
him, he was a mentor,"
Atkinson said. "He was like
a second father to me in my
adult life. He was a model
community leader, and his
leadership was based on
personal integrity not
just basic honesty, but an
unwavering commitment to
live by his core values."
Williams was a man com-
mitted to service to his God
and country, and to his com-
munity, Atkinson said, and
he always treated everyone
fairly and respectfully.
Williams Manor Adult
Residential Treatment
Facility was named
to honor him at what is
now Meridian Behavior
Healthcare, Atkinson said.
The other building
named in his honor is at
Airman Leadership School
at Pope Air Force Base, in
North Carolina, he said.
Air Force Second Lt.
Chris Hoyler of Pope AFB's
43rd Airlift Wing Public
Affairs .Office confirmed
there is building is named
after Williams, and the Air
Force had a coin minted
in honor of him as a distin-
guished graduate of Pope
AFB's ALS.
Edith Purser-Vass served
on the mental health board
with Willianms. ,
I"He was one of the most
outstanding men in the
black community," she'
said. "He was a gentleman
who was a professional, and
he always was looking for
the good in others."
Purser-Vass noted
that Williams always was
very devoted to his wife
Margaret, who died before
him.
Williams earned another
distinction after retirement.
He was named as Lake City-


Columbia County Chamber
of Commerce Director
Emeritus, Chamber
Executive Director Jim
Poole said.
"In your lifetime, you
have occasion to meet spe-
cial people," Poole said.
"He was a special person
who truly cared about peo-
ple. He wanted everyone
to have a better opportu-
nity, by building on their
education."
In 1984, Williams was
elected to the Chamber's
Board of Directors and
served as the chair of the
Education Committee,
Poole said.
County Commissioner
Ron Williams said Louis
Williams Jr. remained
involved as a community
leader for decades. Ron
Williams said his mother
and Louis Williams were
classmates, many years ago.
"He was a pillar of this
community," County
Commissioner Williams
said. "He truly, will be
missed. He put his leader-
ship skills to work to help
the community."
Beyond service in the
Chamber and in the mental
health community after his
retirementfromtheAir Force,
Williams served as a mem-
ber of the Columbia -County
IDA, eight years on the Lake
City Community College
Board of Trustees, on the
Mount Pisgah AME Church

Hospital, Columbia County

dent three times) and other

Loves Wrinkle Cream
Hates Puffy Eyes, Age Spots


DEAR DONNA: You're
the best! Remember when
I wrote and told you- that
I was a baby boomer who
hated wrinkles on my face
and neck, and you
told me about that
pharmacist's discovery,
eb5 Facial Cream? Well,
I bought a jar at our
local JCPenney Cosmetics
& Fragrances department,
and it's wonderful! I wish
you could see how much
younger I look. I love and
recommend it to all my
friends. But how about
helping me with my other
problems puffy eyes and age
spots on my hands and face?
Curious, St. Louis, MO

DEAR CURIOUS: I knew
you would like eb5 Facial
Cream! It actually works
like five products in one
jar wrinkle, throat and
firming creams, 24-hour
moisturizer and makeup base.


Regarding your questions
about puffy eyes and age
spots, the same pharmacist,
Robert Heldfond, has
products for both. His eb5
EyeTreatment helps diminish
the appearance of dark
circles and puffiness around
the eyes. eb5 Age Spot
Formula works wonderfully
for unsightly pigment and
dark discolorations on the
hands and face. You'll love
them, and they're completely
guaranteed. eb5 formulas
are available in select
JCPenney Cosmetics &
Fragrances departments
or at jcp.com. To learn
