Wreck knocks out power in city


Local woman involved in
overnight crash escapes
with minor injuries.
From staff reports
A Lake City woman escaped serious
injury early Saturday morning when
deer ran in front of her car, causing
her to lose control and strike a power
pole, according to reports. The wreck
caused a power outage in various parts
of Lake City for an undetermined
amount of time. ;
According to Florida Highway Patrol
reports, Vicki Crews, 35, of Lake City,
was traveling west on County Road
242, just east of State Road 47, in


a 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe at approxi-
mately 1:44 a.m. Saturday. Crews later
told authorities that three deer ran out
onto the'westbound lane of the road-
way, and caused her to take evasive
action and travel onto the north grassy
shoulder. The SUV overturned several
times before it struck a Clay Electric
utility pole, which caused the Lake
City power outage.
Crews from Clay Electric were on
the scene shortly after the accident
occurred to restore power, but it was
unclear on Saturday how long the
power was out in those areas before it
was fully restored.
According to reports, Crews suf-
fered minor injuries in the crash.


Clay Electric employees
work to replace a power
pole and its lines after a
vehicle lost control late
early Saturday morning and
crashed through the pole and
ended up on its side after the
driver reportedly tried to miss.
three deer crossing County
Road 242. The crash was
located about ',-mile east of
State Road 47. The driver
suffered a minor abrasion
and was wearing a' seat belt.

S :The. Columnbia County
Master Gardeners opened,
the doors to its annual plant
sale Saturday morning to
an already gathered crowd
of dozens.
The event, which took
place at the University of
Florida/Institute of Food
and Agriculture Sciences
Columbia County Extension
Office at the Columbia
County Fairgrounds, is the'
seventh annual plant sale.
All funds raised for the
event go back into the mas-
ter gardeners program.

Hundreds of plants were
on sale Saturday, ranging
from butterfly plants 'and
house plants to annuals and
perennials. And those pur-
chasing plants on Saturday
also were able to get advice
from a master gardener or
two on where the purchased
plants would grow best.
"A lot of people will
purchase plants that just
'won't take the heat," said

Life of dedication


JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter
Retired Air Force Col. Donald Scheller, 86, and his son Rick, 62, sift through old photographs to use in a historical
book they are creating for Scheller's children, grandchildren and future generations. Scheller served in World War II,
the Korean Conflict, and in the Vietnam War. He also was on loan to NASA.

Veteran of three wars-a living face of patriotism


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Retired Air Force Col.
Donald R. Scheller
can remember taking
his first flight aboard
a Curtiss Condor as a
child growing up in Maryland.
"When I was 9 years old I got
that flight in a Curtiss Condor and
that cinched it from then on I
.had to be a pilot," he said..
Evidently, that one flight
changed and influenced his life
and carried him to destinations
and sights around the globe


INSIDE


!The Reporter's ''Faces of
* Courage" begins today and
examines World War I and
World War II, ID
* Editor's note: Some
photos submitted for "Faces
of Courage" contained little
or no information and carry
no identification along with
the photo
where as a child he had not even
dreamed about.
Scheller, 86, has been a


Columbia County resident for
nearly a year after he and his wife,'
Doris, recently moved here from
Maryland. '
His life as a retiree is quiet,
and now he would rather focus
more of his time on his golf game.
But when he puts on his black
military-inspired ball cap it seems
to make his chest broaden with
patriotism, his tightly-trimmed
mustache appears -more military
issue and it appears to sharpen his
focus to detail a skill gleamed'
over many years of debriefings.

and it just seemed like a
good thing to look at. It's
a continuous improvement
type of function."
Coughlin said students
will work with a survey
operator to answer various
questions.. Some will be 'yes'
or 'no' 'answers, she said,
while others will have stu-
dents ranking from 'excel-
lent,' 'good,' or 'fair.' Some.
will ask students about their
likes and dislikes of lunch-
room food, how many times
students eat in the lunch-
room each week, and if stu-
dents bring their lunch, ask


why they do so.
Many of the questions
will address students' satis-
faction regarding food qual-
ity, presentation and food
service. The data collected
from the r surveys will be
carefully reviewed and
studied, and applied dur-
ing the 2009-2010 school
year. Annually, the school
food service serves more
than 1.2 million meals and
snacks.
District parents and staff
will also be able to offer
suggestions by going to

School food and nutrition
has received a lot of atten-
tion during recent years,
Coughlin said, and because
of that, the school district's
menu has underwent
numerous changes. Fried
foods are no longer on the
menu, and students now


have thechoice of more sal-
ads, fruits and vegetables.
Studies have proven that
students *who eat a nutri-
tional breakfast and lunch
perform better academical-
ly in school, and Coughlin
said she hopes the study,
may help students become
healthier eaters.'

'the writing is on the
wall -or in this
', I case, on the theme
book: Columbia
County fourth-, eighth- and
:loth-grade students are
:holding their own, and making
.-inprovements, when compared
with students at the state level.
Students in those grades took
the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Tests in writing
in February. On Thursday, the
results from that exam show
fourth-graders mirroring the
state average with a 4.0, while
eighth- and 10th-graders both
posted significant local gains
compared with 2008's mean
scores.
In each case and at every
- school in the county-- those
-scores were well above the
3.5 mark of grade level
proficiency. There is distinction
in this achievement.
Yet there is also room
for improvement. While the'
County's average 10th-grade
student rose to the occasion
with a score that rose to a
-4.0 from a 3.7 last year, eighth-
:grade students posted numbers
#tliat dipped just below the
state average and fourth-grade
'students left no wiggle room in
'the comparison.
Superintendent of
Schools Mike Millikin was
right in congratulating
students and faculty on their
accomplishment.
-But he was iMso ngiht when
he noted that "writing is a
Higher level skill, one you build
on and need throughout ... life."
And because he is right -
-good writing skills are essential
to traverse almost all of life's
paths students and faculty
must continue to build on this
year's foundation.

Edith McNair, early tobacco queen.


local Tobacco Queen
used to be the
culmination of the
summer celebration
of the tobacco sales season.
Eighteen-year-old Edith McNair
got that special honor nearly
50 years ago.
Some of the prettiest, most
popular girls, like Edith, were
candidates to be selected queen,
and some said they preferred
to be Tobacco Queen to being
Homecoming Queen because
there was more prestige and
gifts to it.
Some of the typical gifts were
a wristwatch, a cedar chest,
luggage and a portable radio.
Great gifts back then.
Edith McNair won those gifts
when she was chosen Tobacco
Queen in 1950 at the annual
Tobacco Jubilee celebration
from among several outstanding
contestants like Joann Giebeig,
Harriet Frye (of Fort White),
Sissy Ives, Joan Wheeler, Betty
Johnson and Jean Noegel. '
Becoming Tobacco Queen
was indeed a great honor in
fact, the crowning was called a
coronation and it was also an
honor for the person selected to
crown the new queen. I
For example, Congressman
Billy Matthews traveled all the
way from Washington, D.C.
to crown Queen Faye Revels
and Bob Rucker, International
Councilor and District Governor
of Lions International, traveled a
great distance to crown Queen
Nan Bodiford.
Almost nobody grows tobacco
here anymore since the U.S.
Surgeon General found a
connection between tobacco use
and,cancer, so the glorious days
of the Tobacco Queens are long
gone.
But back before the Surgeon
General's findings, tobacco was
king in our county -.the main
cash crop and many of our
most outstanding young ladies
were thrilled to be selected
Tobacco Queen.

music


will be


aplenty

If you're spending this
weekend depressed and
missing an abundance
of live music in the area,
recovering from last
weekend's awesome Suwannee
River Jam event in Live Oak,
then hang on. You only have
a few days until a multitude of
talent takes the stage at two
venues in Lake City.
On Saturday, the first
Gospel Celebration presented

Lake City Kiwanis Club
members have worked hard to
organize and promote this first
event..Their plan is to make
this a signature gospel event
for the region, a can't-miss
spring concert on the annual

The group is off and
running and Lake City needs a
gigantic gospel music festival.
This is the perfect spot for the
concert and the audience is
certainly here, too.

LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, MAY 3, 2009


SCHELLER: Veteran of three
Continued From Page 1A


wars also worked for NASA, Malcolm Forbes


The cap contains the
names of three wars -
World War II, the Korean
Conflict and the Vietnam
War, all combat situations
where Scheller put his life
on the line countless times
for his country.
Scheller joined the Air
Force in October 1941,
but wasn't called to active
duty until February
1942. He was a private
pilot when he joined the
service and remained an
Air Force man for the next
31 years. During those
three decades of service,
Scheller served on active
duty in three wars as well
as working on research and
development for NASA.
Scheller joined the
military as a young man
in his 20s and fought in
World War II as a pilot, in
the Korean Conflict behind
enemy lines and in the
Vietnam War as a C-130
transport plane pilot.
Later, he was also tapped
to work with Malcolm
Forbes, the magazine
tycoon, as Forbes worked
on an attempt to become
the first man to successfully
cross the Atlantic Ocean in
a hot-air balloon.

World War II
While in his 20s,
Scheller was stationed at
the Deenethorpe Air Base
in England where he flew
B-17 bombers on bombing
missions over Germany.
Scheller-was the pilot
of Bandwagon II. He
was in charge of the.
aircraft's 10-man crew,
which flew 36 bombing
missions during the war,
including participation in
the bombing of Berlin in
1945 which was estimated
to be the largest air raid
of the war. That effort
had about 2,000 bombers
and approximately 1,500
fighters. In World War II,
the U.S. Air Force flew
day missions and the
British Royal Air Force
flew night missions, so
there was around-the-clock
bombings on the German
positions.
'The airplane was hit
many times with flak (anti-
aircraft shrapnel), but my
whole crew and I went
through World War II
and I went through Korea
and Vietnam shot at also,
and never got a scratch,"
Scheller said. "There's no
way you can deliberately
steer through that stuff.
It's just that God's looking
out for you."
His previous experience
as a civilian pilot didn't
translate into instant
success as an aviator for
the Air Force.
"My civilian flying was
light plane flying for fun
and that didn't translate
a whole lot, but it made it
easier for me solo when
I first became a student
pilot in the military," he
said. "Military flying is
totally different. The skills
really didn't translate that
much."
SOn one of his missions,
Scheller saw a German
aircraft which was flying
with no propellers one
of the jets the Germans
recently introduced to the
war effort.
"We were still over

efi'Tg
- v.1-.i yin


Germany and nobody
had told us there was
such a thing as a jet," he
said. "I had no idea an
.airplane could fly with
no propellers. I was so
amazed I couldn't even call'
it out to my crew it' was
only for a few seconds. I
couldn't wait to get back
to the intelligence people
at the base and tell them
about this airplane I saw
flying with ro propellers"
The aircraft was later .
identified as a German ME
262, a twin-jet aircraft.

Korean Conflict
Between World War II
and the Korean Conflict,
Scheller worked with the
research and development
of U.S. weapons at
Aberdeen Proving Ground
in Maryland, followed by
a stint as the chief test
pilot at a Spokane, Wash.
military facility.
"Because of that
expertise when the Korean
War broke out, the Air
Force wanted to find out if
we had the right weapons
in our air-to-ground
warfare," Scheller said.
"My job was to find out
how effective the weapons
were and then feed that
information back into the
weapons development
Businesss"


t. During the Korean
Conflict, Scheller's role
in the military changed.
No longer was he a pilot
dropping bombs on the
enemy, but now he was on
the ground assessing the
damage caused by U.S.
aircraft as a soldier on the
front lines.
During the Korean
Conflict Scheller was
stationed in Japan and
Korea. He served with an
attachment to the. 8th U.S.
Army.
"My purpose in Korea
was not flying combat,
it was studying aircraft
weapons that are used
against ground targets,"
he said. "In order to do
that I had to be up to
the front lines where the
targets were being hit.
So wherever the 8th U.S.
Army's front lines were is
where I was every place
from Taegu to the North
Korean capitol."
Scheller was part of
a five-man crew, which
would cross enemy
lines, assessing bombing
damage. The crew'
included an intelligence
specialist, photographer
and driver.
"I spent a lot of time
behind enemy lines," he
said. "I also captured a
few enemy soldiers who
attacked us. I was with an

Some of those were awarded
more than once.

time, we beat the enemy off
and captured two of them."
Vietnam War
Following his combat
action in the Korean
Conflict, from 1959-1964,
Scheller worked with the
war department on the
Atlas ballistic missile,
the first intercontinental
ballistic missile at
Vandenberg Air Force
.Base in California. He also
worked on the Sidewinder
missile.
Scheller also worked
with the National
Aeronautics and Space
Administration (NASA)
from 1964-1969, while
on loan from the Air
Force because he had
experience with building
missile sites. He was the
chief of site activation
for launch complex 39-A
and 39-B at the Kennedy.
Space Center as scientists
worked on the Apollo and
Saturn V moon program.
During the Vietnam
War, Scheller served as
a C-130 transport plane
pilot and was stationed in
Taiwan. While in Vietnam
he was a squadron
commander over a
squadron of 25 C-130
,aircraft and their crews.

out when they got over
run and we delivered
supplies to all the bases
over there," he said.
During the Vietnam
War, the pilots flew
missions with a bunch of
stops over a 10-12 hour
crew day. Each takeoff
and landing was called
a sortie and during
his tenure in Vietnam,
Scheller flew an estimated
206 sorties, as he served
in 1969-1970.
'The difficulty in
Vietnam for us was
landing on the short, dirt
strip runways," he said.
From 1971-1974 he
worked at a satellite
control station in Denver,
Colo, performing work

that to this day remains
classified by the military.
Shortly after his
retirement from the
military in 1974, Scheller
met a friend of magazine
magnate Malcolm Forbes
who was a balloon
researcher. Forbes, who
was known for establishing
records with hot-air
balloons, enlisted the help
of Scheller as his mission
director in his planned
attempt to make a
trans-Atlantic hot-air
balloon mission.
"Unfortunately it
aborted on takeoff,"
Scheller said. "Once it
took off it was mine until
it landed in Europe, but it
didn't get airborne."

Going the


McCullom wraps
up fifth Boston
Marathon run.
By BRAN)DON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.com
ust like a
marathon, it
was a long road
of training for
Michelle
McCullom as she
competed in her fifth
Boston Marathon on
April 20.
McCtllom, who is a
personal trainer, has a
year-round training
regimen that isn't for the
faint of heart
'Besides running races
on most weekends,
McCullom goes through
a rigorous week-to-week
schedule. She's run races,
in Jacksonville, Gainesville
and in native Lake City.
During the summer
in training for Boston,
McCullom runs five to
six miles a day, due to the,
heat Most of the time
these training runs take
place in the morning or
night to cut.down on the
possibility of overheating.
That's just the
beginning. Winter marks
the start of the real work,
where she and her running.
mates, which usually
includes her fiance Tony
Richards, begin runs that
range from 12 to 14 miles.
Once they're acclimated
with the 12-mile runs,
the group increases their
distance by two miles each
week until they're up to
around the distance of a


distance


marathon, which is 26.2
miles.
"About a week before
a marathon, we begin to
slack off a little bit to give
our body a chance to build
itself back up," McCullom
said:
It's a process she's
been through in the
past, but she began to
feel her times becoming
stagnant. McCullom
credits the addition of.
vitamin supplements and
good nutrition to setting
her personal best time of
3:22:17 in Boston this year.
Besides an excellent
nutritional guide,,
McCullom has found that
learning fo run at a slower
pace while training can
help in ways she hadn't
expected.
"I finally found the key'
to success," McCullom
said. "We started inviting
guys out, but it's hard to
make yourself run slower
and stay with them. Once
I did, though, I found that
it increases my endurance
levels."

Family experience /
McCullom was not the
only member of her family
to run in Boston this year,
as her parents, Buddy and
Sandra Haas, children,
Skye and Alex McCullom,
and fianc6 Richards each
competed in the inaugural
5K.
"The greatest moments
for this Boston trip were
made on Sunday as my
entire family ran the

Children flock to Alligator Lake

for All-American Fishing Derby


TONY BRITT/Lake City Reporter
Rikki Cole, 9, of Lake City, gets help from Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission fisheries biologist Dan
Dorosheff, as she reels in a fish. More than 70 children
attended Saturday's event.


More than 70
youngsters show
for annual event
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
More than 70 local young-
sters and their parents took
advantage of a weekend
opportunity to bond and
learn the joys of fishing at a
free recreational event.
The 12th Annual Wal-
Mart All-American Fishing
Derby took place Saturday
at the Alligator Lake
Public Recreation Area
as a partnership between
the local Wal-Mart and the
Columbia County Tourist
Development Council.
As part of the featured


event, local children fished
in Ponderosa Pond and
caught bream and catfish
from 8 a.m.-noon.
In addition to the fishing
and fishing-related activities
such as casting contests,
representatives from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission,
Columbia County Sheriff's
Office, Columbia County
EMS and Columbia County
Fire Department had vehi-
cles and equipment on the
scene where the children
could learn about the equip-
ment.
"It's just a great day
to have a parent come
out with a child," said
Columbia County Tourist
Development Council
executive director Harvey


Campbell. "It's a neat bond-
ing opportunity for families
to bring their young ones
out here and enjoy fish-
ing and a little bit of family
entertainment."
Lake City Wal-Mart
sporting goods department
manager Nathan Morgan
said the event started off as
a companywide event done
at the store in swimming
pools and grew into the
event at the Alligator Lake
Public Recreation Area.
"They cut it out com-
panywide, but the kids
enjoyed it so much here
in Lake City we just felt
like we should continue to
do it here," he said, noting
when Ponderosa Pond first

RUNNER: McCullom to do triathlon
Continued From Page 1B


Boston inaugural 5K.
My parents, my fiance
and both my children
all captured the famous
Boston unicorn with me
Sunday morning.
St was a great warm up
for my marathon on that
Monday.
"They had never
competed before, and were
excited that I was running.
with then. To watch their
faces, and to see how much
fun they were having was
amazing. As a mother, it
made it all worthwhile."
Skye, 9, and Alex, 7,
haven't reached the age
where they are training at
the intense level of their
mother, but McCullom
encourages them to follow
in her tracks.
"I don't force them to
run, because at that age
you don't want to force
them to do anything. I
want them to want to
run, so when they want
. to run with me, I'll let
them." McCullom said. "I
encourage them to, but I
don't force them."
The encouragement has
translated into them having


recently competed in races.
Alex finished ninth in a run
at Suwannee with a time of
36:00. McCullom believes.
he could have broke that
time in Boston, but due to
the size of the crowd she
wanted Alex to stay back
with his sister and her.

Boston and beyond

Her fifth experience in
Boston may have been
.her most memorable,
according to McCullom,
from. her experience with
her family to a new record
time.
"Boston was unique, just
like every year," McCullom
said.
Perhaps one of the
things that made it unique
this year was the size of
the crowd, which was
the second largest in the,
history of the Boston
Marathon.
"It took me 10 minutes
to cross the starting line.
In that short time. runners
become family as we await
the starL We're sharing
Vaseline, Biofreeze, gloves


and cuddling together for
warmth.
"During the race you
go through stages when.
you get.down, and there is
always someone to push
you. Then you find yourself
pushing someone else."
. Besides the test of
overall endurance, Boston
is known for its hills, and
the runners also had to
deal with wind in this
year's marathon.
"The hills were once
again challenging, and
the headwinds didn't help
much. Overall, I had an
amazing race. Crossing the
finish line this year brought
me to tears, and I looked up
to thank God for the ability
to achieve my goal."
McCullom will continue
to train again this year for
another trip up to Boston,
but in the time between the
event she'll tackle a new
challenge.
'"On May 31, I'm going
to do my first triathlon,"
McCullom said.
Whatever the challenge,
one thing's sure to happen,
McCullom will go the
distance.

the kids. It, gives them a
chance to get out and do
something. For some of

to go fishing and for a lot of
them it's their first chance
to go fishing and that might

Recognize

workers in,

midst of a

recession

While we are focusing
on fear, worry, or hate, it
is not possible for us to be
experiencing happiness,
enthusiasm or love.
Bo Bennett,
Year to Success
recognizing
employee,
accomplish-
Sments is so
important,
and in today's economic
climate, it is even more
critical. Most of your staff
is fearful for their jobs and
their families' wellbeing.
.If there is ever a time that
you need to go out of your
way to appreciate your
staff, that time is now.
Some people are going
to say that with cash being
so tight, they need to
conserve for survival, and
they are correct. However,
.. you must make sure that
your staff is not being
forced to do their jobs
under an umbrella of fear.
I recently walked in to
one business, and I could
just feel the fear from,
all of the employees. I
wanted to walk right out
of there as fast as I could.
The employees had gone
'. through one staff layoff and
were fearful of another one.
It is hard for your staff to
.3 be cheerful when dealing
with customers if they are
operating on a foundation
of fear. It just will not work
having your staff fearful for
their livelihood. '
One great way to
overcome this fear is
through a public show of
appreciation. Recognizing
staff with plaques and
awards does not cost
money, but it adds value
to your company. I cannot
imagine a more' effective
way of dispelling fear than
giving a' nice plaque to an
employee or a group of
employees to thank them
for a job well done.
Additionally, as salary
increases get scarcer
this year, recognition

LIVE OAK-
T he annual
Suwannee Jam
saw more than
25,000 people in ,
attendance this
year, more than a 30 percent
increase from the year
before, and local officials are
looking for ways the event
can be used to help stimulate
the economy.
Spirit of the Suwannee
Music Park President James
Cornett said Friday that the
attendance numbers are an
increase from years past, and
officials are looking at the
upcoming Wanee Festival on
June 5-6 to possibly bring in
a slightly larger crowd.
"Wanee's advanced
ticket sales are through
the roof," Cornett said. "It's.
interesting, because we have
a lot of neighbors that are:
suffering from the effects of
the economy, but the truth
is, our business is thriving.
The reality of it is when you
compare it to alternatives
such as Disney or the beach,.
it's really inexpensive."
Columbia County.officials
are trying to use some of that
blooming business to help
stimulate the economy locally.
While many of the
attendees to the Jam stay
on site approximately
50 percent, according to

S will mean even more.
An award presented in
Sa public setting says,
ft- 1 "I have confidence in
-.-- you, and I appreciate
. your commitment to our
. . company." A message like
. .. that trumps fear and lack of
S.. salary increase every time.
Some great times to
recognize staff are when
S^ they meet or exceed
a. important goals, or when
they are commended
m -I by your customers for
doing a great job. I once
walked around my office
and tried to envision how
many awards I could
e give my staff, and the
;list was endless. This
exercise really helped
raise my awareness of
the numerous areas that
needed rewarding. Going
o- bway beyond the call of
duty, giving 120 percent
effort, always putting the
team first and creative
approaches to problem
b. * solving were just a few of
S. the areas I found to reward.
SNow go out and
find ways that you can
recognize as many staff
members as possible over
S- the next six months in
So order to reduce fear in your
organization. Be creative
in your approach and give
them something tangible
to permanently mark the
occasion and make it an
o indelible milestone for the
S *. employee.
You can do this!

VENDORS: Attempt to focus on captive audience


Continued From Page 1C
Cornett those visiting
from outside of the area
who don't stay at the
park must find hospitality
elsewhere. Most stay inI
Live Oak, while the rest
are split between Lake City
and Valdosta. \
Harvey Campbell, \
executive director of the \
Columbia County Tourist \
Development Council, said
he would like to see more
of those people coming
to Lake City and plans to
begin working with local
hotels later this month


to put together some
aggressive rate packages.
"We are still trying to
figure out, how do we
turn a big event that has a
fairly good draw to it and
make it more beneficial
to our hotels and retail
business outside the park,"
Campbell said. "You can't
begrudge (the park),
because they use the Jam
8uch like Disney does in
tht fact that they have a
cap tve audience. You're
there, you're camping
there, you're eating there


and so you're pretty much
self-contained so much
of the revenue is being
generated there.
"Our challenge is to
figure out how to capitalize
on something that has a
significant draw and draw
more of them over here,"
he said.
One new
implementation this year
was shuttle service to Lake
City hotels from the Spirit
of the Suwannee Music
Park, so for those who
partied a little too much


that night, there is no need
to worry about driving
. back to a hotel room.
"That thing will catch
on," Cornette said about
the shuttle service. "It's
just a matter of developing
habits for people to catch
the shuttle. People don't
have to worry about
having a beer and driving
back, and our local hotels
are full no matter what.
The only alternative is to
go to Lake City. Ifs natural
that they're going there
and renting those rooms."

D-Day soldier shares recollections of World War II


By JEFF M. HARDISON
jhardison@lakecityreporter.com
Two men who are in
LLake City now were
dropping troops over
Normandy during D-
Day in World War II.
Carlos Crews, 89, and Henry
Smith Keel, 87, were both in
the U.S. Army Air Corps. That
is now known as the U.S. Air
Force.
Crews joined on June 5, 1942;
and he returned to Jacksonville
on Sept. 10, 1945, after.
performing his military service
in World War II. Keel returned
to Miami after joining in-1942
also.
The octogenarians shared
some qf their experiences in the
U.S. Army Air Corps during the
war.
Crews earned the rank of
master sergeant and was an air
engineer.
"We did what we had to do,"
he said. "I hope we never ever
have to do this again. We went
over there to win this war, come
what may."
Keel is in the Robert H.
Jenkins, Jr. Veterans' Domiciliary
Home in Lake City now.
In 1941, Keel obtained his
pilot's license and he was duel
rated by 1942, when he joined.
He was recalled for the Korean
War. He was a captain at the
end of WWII and
a major at .
the end of his
tour of duty in
Korea.
On D-Day,
Keel was in a
flight of 1,500
airplanes. Keel
flew with his
commander as
they dropped 21
paratroopers from
the 101st Airborne
Division, he said.
The invasion that
brought Crews and
Keel together was one
of the turning points
in WWII. It marked the
beginning of the end.
of the war in Europe.
The war in the Pacific
ended after the U.S. dropped two.
atomic bombs on Japan, one on
Nagasaki and one on Hiiosinla.

World War ll
* Germany, Italy and Japan
were unhappy aftdr World War.
I ended. Germany, a loser in
the war, objected to sanctions
imposed on it by the Treaty,
of Versailles. Italy, one of the
winners, was dissatisfied with
its'territorial gains from WWI.
Japan, also a victor, was unhappy
about its failure to gain control
over China as it had wanted.
Adolf Hitlerpreached a racist
brand of fascism in Germany
and promised to overturn.the
treaty. An economic depression
ran rampant through Germany
in the early 1930s. Many
German voters turned to the
Nazi and Communist parties,
because more moderate politics
had no answers for them.
In 1933, Hitler was elected as
the German chancellor, and later
established himself as dictator.
Japan imposed a similar type
of totalitarianism.
As a result of the Spanish civil
war (1936-39), Hitler started
working with Benito Mussolini,
the Italian dictator. Treaties
between Germany, Italy and
Japan created the Berlin-Rome-
Tokyo Axis. Hitler invaded,

Keel. As a supply plane,
the twin-prop C-47 could carry
up to 6,000 pounds of cargo,
according to the Boeing WTebl
site. It could also hold a fully
assembled jeep or a 37 mm
cannon. As a troop transport, it
carried 28 soldiers in
full combat gear. As a
medical airlift plane, it
could accommodate
14 stretcher patients
and three nurses.
oThe plane also
took gliders
into the air and
released them to
conduct military
missions, Crews
said.
"When that
plane touches
the ground,"
he said, "it's in

Once it
leaves the
ground, it's Stan ol

He had a team of 25 to 30
aircraft mechanics to replace
engines and do whatever was,

of an exclusive club. They were'
among the survivors"of D-Day,


the June 6, 1945, invasion of
Normandy.
"There were hundreds of
airplanes," Crews said. "You
can't hit your target right away.
You've got to rendezvous up
there. You get in formation. After
we got in formation over the
channel with these paratroopers,
we had to drop them at night
before daylight around 2 or
3 o'clock in the morning.
"Paratroopers jumped in the
night, not knowing where in the
heck they were. That takes a
brave, brave man to do that."
Participants were told before
. Normandy to expect a 70
percent casualty rate, he said.
Crews was involved in attacks
after Normandy, where the Allies
invaded southern France and
other parts of Europe too.
During other missions, Crews
saw whole groups of people one
day.and they were gone the
next..
'We were involved in the
Belgiuh bulge on Christmas
Eve," he said. "We flew into
England to pick-up airborne
infantry to fly them to the froiif
to help our troops break out.
We had to make room for those
soldiers in our own tents. We
broke out Christmas
a packages
.and
Shared
them
: with
them.
"The
next -

we took
off to the
Belgium
Bulge. That
night, we had
to report back
that about half
of them lost,
their lives that
day."
nas The devastation
and horror of war
went throughout
Europe, Asia and North
Africa.
At the end of the European
Theater of war, Crews and his
colleagues carried gasoline to
the front and injured men to
hospitals., .
"o the last, primarily we
were flying gasoline for (Gen.:
George) Patton's tanks, because


they were running out of fuel,".
Crews said. "We were evacuating
wounded transporting them
back over to England."
As flight chief, crews and
wasn't supposed
to go on
a combat
mission, but
he wanted to
go, he said.
"We couldn't .
even land there
were so many
planes," he said. .
'We flew down r
the front line and
landed on a metal
mesh that was
under six inches of
water. We unloaded
gasoline, but then
we had to take off.
They made us take
off. Get out of there.
There were Germans oo
all over there."
After the war ended

Tupac

still tips

'em in the

Big Easy?
S *C contrary to
reports, Tupac
Shakur is still
dead.
In fact, I'm
going to go out on a limb
and report that he, Elvis
Presley and Notorious
B.I.G. are still dead. So is
Marilyn Monroe and Anna
Nicole Smith.
Not one of these people
have faked their deaths,
no matter how often
"sightings" may occur *
that lead you to believe
otherwise. They're not
living together in the
Bermuda Triangle, or
living with aliens in the
farthest reaches of space,
traveling on' a spaceship
piloted by Amelia Earhart
-Death takes everyone
eventually, arid for these
people, it was their time,
natural death or not
Why is it that people
have such a hard time
admitting that celebrities
are dead? They're not
some type ofsuperheroes
they're people just like'
us, who can get sick and
die just like us. I pray to
God we don't hav4 any Bea
Arthur sightings in the
next few months, because
that may just make me lose
all faith in the human race.
Death takes
everyone
eventually,
and for these
people, it was
their time, natural
death or not.
My reasoning behind
writing this column is that
the always reliable TMZ
reported on Wednesday
that long-dead rapper
Tupac Shakur was spotted
in a New Orleans bar over
the weekend. And better
-yet, they have pictures to
prove it kind of.
Yes, the man in question
does resemble the dead
rapper, but there's a guy
back home in Valdosta, Ga.
who I've been told looks
just like me. Apparently we
all have dopplegangers.
Also, Tupac died at age
25 and has been dead for
13 years now. In these
photos, he doesn't seem
to have aged a day. Now,
if Tupac were a vampire,
I'd be a little more willing
to believe this.,But as
, he's drinking a number
S of alcoholic drinks rather
than a bottle of blood, we
definitely know this isn't
the case. And he's too well
preserved to be a zombie.
So he isn't the living dead.
And why is it that any
photograph taken of a dead
celebrity is blurry, from the
side and, of course, taken
with a camera.phone.
I don't know about you,
but if I'm drinking in a bar
and a dead celebrity saddles
up on a stool next to me,
I'm not taking photos from
a distance and letting him
or her walk out the door
I'm confronting them on
why they aren't dead.
And if it's true, the first
media outlet I call isn't TMZ


- it's CNN, Fox News,
MSNBC, ABC News.
And of course, the Lake
City Reporter

LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, MAY 3, 2009


By CHARLES HALL
Lake City Community
College president
A s hard as it
is to believe,
Lake City
Community'
College's
graduation ceremonies will
be held next week on May
8 in the LCCC Howard
Conference Center
(previously the Howard
Gymnasium) on the LCCC
Campus. While this is a
time for celebrating the
accomplishments of our
students, it is also an
important time to reflect
on our students and the
path pursued to reach
their goals. Therefore,.
I contacted Logan
Cross, LCCC director of
research and institutional
effectiveness, to get some
statistics to share in this
article. Also, instrumental
in helping to compile
this information is Karyn
Congress; LCCC assistant
to the president. I thank
both Logan and Karyn for
their help in getting this
information to you.
To begin with, it is
important to point out
that last year the college
'served 6,305 students.
These statistics include
students taking credit
and noncredit courses on
either a full or part-time
basis. The demographic
characteristics of the
students who attend the
college reflect those of
the regional population. .
Survey results indicate
that most students enter
the college because of
its convenient location,,


academic reputation, and
its affordability. While
at LCCC, the largest
percentage of students
pursues an associate in
art (AA) degree that
is transferable to other
colleges and universities.
A sizeable percentage of
students
pursue an
associate
in science
(A.S.)
degree
which
Dr. Hall focuses on
technical
training for specific
occupations. An equally
important segment of our
students choose to pursue
a certificate that equips
them to enter a particular
occupation. Though the
remainder of our students
may be'undecided about
a career path, they do see
the value in obtaining a
college education. They
are also reassured by
the fact that the college
is continually improving
existing instructional
programs and adding
programs that provide new
career opportunities.
Research information
available at the Florida
Department of Education
Web site shows upon
graduating from LCCC,
students transferring to
University of Florida rank
second among students
transferring from the
28 community colleges
in Florida with a GPA of
3.13. This research also
shows LCCC students
transferring to Florida
State University ranked,
first among students


transferring from all other
community colleges in
Florida with a GPA of 3.20.
More specifically, LCCC
graduates who transfer
to colleges or universities
tend to be very successful.
Their grade point averages
at the receiving institutions
compare very favorably
to the existing university
students and typically
exceed those obtained
by other community
college graduates. The
job placement percentage
for recent occupational
graduates' typically .
exceeds 88 percent. And
now for the good part, the
starting salary for many
occupational program
graduates approaches.
$33,000 which is higher
than the average starting
salary throughout the
region. Selected graduates
receiving an associate in
science or an associate
in applied science degree
report an average starting
salary of $44,000. Though
such job placement and
salary statistics are always
encouraging, they are*
particularly encouraging
during challenging
economic times.
The foregoing
underscores the
importance of the
.upcoming graduation
ceremony. At that time,
we will be honoring the
students who successfully
completed their degree
program since last
year's ceremony. More
specifically, 245 students
graduated during the fall
term and 410 students
applied for graduation this
spring and summer. Thus,


the number of students
who will graduate from
the college this year will
probably exceed 650.
Needless to say, LCCC
is very proud of the
superior teaching and
learning environment
provided by its faculty
and staff. The success
of our current and past
students provides evidence
that LCCC is fulfilling its
mission of providing a
high quality education at
an affordable price.
With all of this in mind, I
encourage you to come to
,the graduation ceremonies
and congratulate our
graduates. If you plan on
attending, it is important
that you be aware of the
schedule of events. The
Nurses' Pinning Ceremony
will begin at 2 p.m. followed
by the Commencement
Ceremony at 5 p.m. on
Friday, May 8. Both events
will be held in the LCCC
Howard Conference
Center.
I hope you will join
me in congratulating
these graduates and their
families for beginning
a course of study and
seeing it through to
completion. They are to be
commended for deciding
to better themselves,
pursuing a higher standard
of living, and contributing
to the betterment of the
community.
Congratulations LCCC
graduates and families, we
send you our best wishes.
Hall is the president
of Lake City Community
College. He can be reached
