PUBLIC SAFETY

LCPD

requests

new cars
Department
looks to buy
11 more vehicles.
By ANTONIA ROBINSON
arobinson@lakecityreporter.com
The Lake City Police
Department wants to pur-
chase 11 new vehicles, but
the City Council must first
approve its request.
The public safety commit-
tee approved a recommen-
dation to have the depart-
ment purchase the vehicles
now from Duval Ford and
pay the money back from
general funds at a later date
Tuesday night The money
would come from forfeiture
funds.
City Manager Wendell
Johnson made the motion
which was seconded by
Council Woman Melinda
Moses.
The department original-
ly wanted to purchase two
administrative vehicles from
forfeiture funds this fiscal
year, two more from gen-
eral funds 'after Oct. 1 and'
seven patrol cars through
grants, said LCPD Capt.
Rudolph Davis. The depart-
ment would save money by
purchasing at least the first
two vehicles because car
prices would increase and
they would have to wait in
line with the rest of Florida,
Davis said. The increase
would be approximately
$2,000.
In other .business the
committee:
* Approved the purchase
of lights, sirens, and strip-
ing of new police vehicles
for $11,946, budgeted for
this fiscal year. Two current

T he history of
the Chevrolet

long and storied
one, one that
dates back more than a half
century. On Tuesday, that
history came alive in Lake
City when more than 200
of the popular sports cars
gathered to prepare for a
trip home.

In addition, Columbia

Brannon said his office
did a total of 1,257 transac-

majority of which were tag
purchases and renewals.
He said there were about
1,000 people in his office
throughout the day on
Monday.
"It's been crowded
before, but nothing like
that," Brannon said on
Tuesday. "According to the
numbers, we probably did
a week's worth of work in
a day. We normally have
about 400 transactions a
day, and (Monday) we did
about 2,000."

JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter
Samuel Froio, the senior stakeholder liaison of the Small
Business/Self Employed Division of the IRS, speaks to Sue
Ratliff (left) and Barbara Swann of Swann Industries Tuesday, at
the Small Business Resource Fair. More than 100 people were
in attendance at the event at Lake City Community College.


Fair offers plans,
resources for area
entrepreneurs.
By ANTONIA ROBINSON
arobinson@lakecityreporter.com
Greg Sheppard of Banks
County is interested in
starting his own business
one day but wasn't sure
of all the resources avail-
able to him, he said. He
soon found what he need-


ed at the Small Business
Resource Fair Tuesday.
"I think it was pretty inter-
esting," he said. "They've
got a lot of good people
here to help you."
Sheppard was one of
abort 100 people who
attended the event.
The Small Business
Development Center at
University of North Florida
sponsored the event at Lake
City Community College
Tuesday.


"Small business owners
are so busy they sometimes
don't know where to get
the info they need or all the
resources available," said
Janice Donaldson, SBDC
regional director.
Also sponsoring the
event were Florida House
of Representatives Leonard
Bembry of District 10 and
Debbie Boyd of District 11.
The District 11 office
has seen an increase in the
number of calls for govern-


ment assistant from small
business owners because
of the economy, Boyd said.
She and Bembry reached
out to the SBDC to help
bring all the resources
available under one roof.
"Small business in the
state of Florida is the back-
bone of the state of Florida,"
Boyd said.."If you're strug-
gling, the state of Florida is
struggling."

JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter
Crystal River resident Bob Maliza, the president of the Citrus County Corvette Club, describes
the spider-motif paint job adorned on and under the hood of his 2006 Corvette.

CORVETTE: Convoy to leave today


Continued From Page 1A

Florida Corvette drivers
from various clubs
across the state gathered
in the old Publix parking
lot - next to the Lake
City Mall - Tuesday
afternoon, and every
make, model, year and
color car was on display
during the staging event,
Ozom base models to the
suped-up, turbo-charged
behemoths..
Cars and drivers will
meet up with other
Corvette caravans from
across the nation as part
of the National Corvette
.Museum Caravan '09,
and converge on Bowling
Green, Ky., at the National
Corvette Museum. This
year marks the museum's
15th anniversary, and
it will be celebrated
from Thursday through
Saturday.
Brian Consaul, of
Atlanta's Pace Setters
Corvette Club, drove down
to Lake City on Tuesday
to meet with the Florida


drivers and lead them on
the next leg of their jour-
ney to Atlanta. After a stop
there, it's a non-stop trek
to Bowling Green, where
each and every Corvette
has been assembled.
Consaul said about 20,000
Corvettes are expected to
be in Bowling Green by
Thursday, and called the
event a "homecoming" of
sorts for the cars.
The drivers stayed in
Lake Cityhotels onTuesday
night and will again stage
near the mall this morning
before leaving Lake City at
around 7:15 a.m. The driv-
ers are expected to again
stop on their return trip
home, Consaul said.
"It's probably a good
little shot in the arm for
the economy in Lake City,"
said Consaul, who, for the
event, had brought down
his Corvette Lingenfelter
Z06 660, one of only 18
ever made.
Sam Militello of
Deerfield Beach said this


was the first Corvette cara-
van he had taken part in.
He and seven others left
Fort Lauderdale, but were
soon joined by another
30 motorists once they
reached Naples. He said at
one time, the caravan was
more than four-and-a-half
miles long.
"It's just really exciting,"
Miletello said. "Everyope
so far has been really
friendly."
Bob Maliza, of Crystal
River and president of the
Citrus County Corvette
Club, said this is his third
caravan - the first in 1999
marked the fifth anniversa-
ry of the museum's open-
ing, and the second, in
2003, marked the 50th anni-
versary.of the Corvette. He
said he was brought into a
Corvette club in 1997 by
his daughter - who owned
two of the cars at the time
- and found it enjoyable.
"We had so much fun
doing that, I went and
bought one," he said.


TAGS: $182,000 in state revenue
Continued From Page 1A


renewals that started on
Tuesday. Residents with a
birthday that fell within
90 days of the Sept. 1 dead-
line were able to renew
early at the old prices, as
long as they did so before
the end of August.
A majority of the tag
transactions were renew-
als, and more than
half of those renew-


als were for two-years.
There also were 149 total
title transactions during
those two days, more than
half of which were title
transfers.
In total, the two days
brought in approximately
$182,405 for the state.
The enhanced fees are
expected to raise more
than $800 million during


the current budget year
and about $1 billion next
year. About $670 million
of the new money from
the first year is slated to
go into the state's general
revenue fund that pays for
operating schools, prisons,
health care and other day-
to-day state functions.
This is the first increase
in tag fees since 1985.


POLICE BRIEFS


Man with knife
Tasered by police

A Lake City man was

taken to the Columbia
County Detention Facility.
Authorities did not release

The incident occurred
at 5:58 p.m. Friday, near
the intersection of Division

officers were called to
the scene to investigate a
reported disturbance and
officer Brian Bruenger
spoke to a woman who
told him Feagle tried to
attack her with a knife.
The woman told the offi-
cer that she and Feagle
had gotten into a verbal
argument at their home
on Allen Place and said
Feagle became violent
toward her, hitting her on
the head with his fist.
The woman said after
a brief struggle she was
able to run away from
Feagle, but Feagle chased
her down the road and
threatened to kill her
with a knife he had in his
hand.
Police officers were able
to find Feagle, but reports
. say he resisted all police


orders. A brief struggle.

after he' allegedly led

lia. Their bond amounts are
$30,000 each.
"The investigation began
Monday," said Columbia
County Sheriff's Office pub-
lic information officer Sgt.
Ed Seifert. "All three (sus-
pects) were arrested at their
homes without incident."
The arrests were made by
the Columbia County Multi-
Jurisdictional .Task Force.
The task force is com-
posed of members from the
Columbia County Sheriff's
Office, Florida Department
of Law Enforcement, Lake
City Police Department and
U.S. Drug Enforcement
Administration.
According to information
from the Columbia County
Sheriff's Office, task force
agents were tipped-off
about the illegal operation
by information from the
Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Office.
Task force agents then


served a search warrant
at 1534 SW Newark Dr.,
in Fort White, and once
inside discovered multiple
live marijuana plants being
grown in a bedroom at the
house.
"The room had been mod-
ified to specifically cultivate
marijuana, including special
lighting, ventilation systems
and irrigation," Seifert said.
'The plants averaged 3-feet
in height."
He said agents seized
more than 20 live marijuana
plants, plus thousands of
dollars worth of equipment
from the home.
Agents later spoke with
a resident from the home
next door, 1498 SW Newark
Drive, to determine wheth-
er he had any knowledge
about the operation.
"While in the home, an
indoor marijuana grow-
ing was discovered there,"
Seifert said.


Authorities later secured
a search warrant for the
home where they fournd a
set-up which was described
by Seifert as being nearly
identical to the first home.
"A bedroQm and laundry
room were full of live mari-
juana plants and the associ-
ated growing equipment,"
he said. "Agents seized over
60 live marijuana plants
and the equipment. Task
force agents estimate that
the marijuana plants have
a street value of $1,000
each."
Seifert said the houses
were not in a subdivision,
but didn't say whether other
arrests were expected in
the case.
'Task Force agents al i
investigating to determir e
if this group is part of a
larger criminal enterprise,"
he said. "I cannot say at this
time if and when additional
arrests will happen."


LCCC: Fair beneficial to businesses
Continued From Page 1A


Exhibitors set up tables
at the fair to provide infor-
mation to anyone interest-
ed in learning about the
services provided.
Diane Head talked
to small business own-
ers about the resources
available through., the
North Florida Workforce
Development Board. The
board brings together
businesses, elected offi-
cials and other partners to
help enhance the available
workforce.
The fair was beneficial
in helping small business


owners network.
"They get to meet face-
to-face with agencies and
establish a relationship,"
she said.
The fair also featured
panel discussions on top-
ics such as selling to the
government, tapping into
the stimulus and - other
federal and state oppor-
tunities and managing for
small business success.
"If you leave here
today without one new
resource, it's not our fault,"
Donaldson told the audi-
ence.


Sheppard said he would
like to see more resource
fairs in the area maybe
once a quarter. Also, a
small business support
group would be beneficial
to learn the challenges
some owners face, and the
successes of others.
The attendance proved
business owners are con-
cerned about the econom-
ic environment, Bembry
said.
"They are willing to do
something about to put
themselves in a better posi-
tion," he said.

A prayer

uttered,

a lesson

learned.
OK, my prayers
aren't typically
answered this
fast, but there's a
lesson here. 4
I eat breakfast out a few days
a week, and I visit two or three
restaurants on a regular basis.
I enjoy the few minutes before
the rush of work, and the short
time I spend at different eat-
ing establishments allows me
to connect with a few friends,
and to catch people reading the
Lake City Reporter.
Neither happened last
Wednesday.
Wednesday was a hustle
from the get-go. Because I had
only a few minutes, if breakfast
was going to happen, it meant
something quick. So early
that morning I'm at a fast food
establishment, walking to a
table with a plate of hot cakes.
I'm in a hurry and I'm focused,
mentally planning my day even
before the syrup hits the plate.
I don't see the gentleman
before I sit down, but after I
do, he's hard to miss. Directly
across from me, a thin, rail
thin, man is rocking back and
-.forth ir-his-chair. Orrhis table
. s.,awjrpn upper cup nd. a half-
dozen, half-empty pill bottles. "
I scan the restaurant. Near '
the door is a large backpack,
a Weathered suitcase and few
plastic bags stuffed with God
knows what.
So he's homeless, spending
a few minutes in the air condi-
tioning before he takes off on a
day that will differ significantly
from mine.
Except he doesn't look
very well, and I'm pretty sure
there's some type of mental ill-
ness at work. His day is not off
to a good start
I pray at breakfast for many
things, but that day this man
was first on my list
And no sooner do I finish that
prayer then a distinguished look-
ing man, a man with a full head
of soft gray hair, crosses my line
of vision. Holding two fists full of
steaming coffee and heading for
the door, he does a double-take
at the homeless gentleman. He
stops, and does something no
one else in the restaurant had
done to that point
He speaks to the rocking
man in the soiled clothes.
"Do you want something to
eat?"
It took a couple of verbal
attempts before he connected,
and I didn't hear the reply, but
soon after, this saint set his
coffee on the man's table and
went back to the counter.
He said little else after set-
ting a bag of food on the man's
table. He picked up his coffee
and continued on his way.
After that, my breakfast
went down pretty hard.
I should have been that
man. Sure, I said a prayer for
the homeless, but that distin-
guished-looking gentleman was
the epitome of prayer in action.
The Epistle of James warns
us about this: "But be ye doers
of the word, and not hear-
ers only, deceiving your own
selves" (James 1:22).
The lesson learned was
mine. It was taught by a man
who didn't take time to ask
why, to judge or to inspect
those around him.
But I heard thie message. I
heard the message loud and
clear, and I intend to do some-
thing about it.

Florida

takes

top

spot

I llinois, Oregon
State, Cincinnati,
California, Notre
Dame, Oregon,
Georgia Tech,
Michigan State, North
Carolina, Nebraska, Utah,
Georgia, Oklahoma State,
Florida State, LSU, Boise
State, Virginia Tech,
Penn State, Alabama
and Ole Miss have came
before them. Now it's
time to look at the top
five teams with the best
chance to win the national
championship in 2009.
5. Ohio State-The
Terrelle Pryor era in the
state of Ohio officially
began last season, but
this is the year that they
have a chance to prove
something. The bad
news for the Buckeyes
is that they will have
to replace seven guys
on the offensive side
of the ball and James
Laurinaitis won't be
there to ball hawk on the
defense.
The good news for the
Buckeyes is that they
continually reload and
Pryor has the chance to
be something special.
Pryor will have to devel-
op as a passer, but he
could end up being the
Buckeyes leading rusher
this season and that's
something that has to
scare opposing defenses.
The Buckeyes have a
chance to jump-start
their season early with
most of their games at
home including a show-
down week two with the
number three team in
my poll, USC, but must
travel to Penn State and
Michigan in November.
4. Oklahoma - They
may have backed their
way into a national cham-
pionship appearance
last season by losing to
Texas and destroying
everyone else, but the
bad news is they'll have
to beat Texas again this
year. Don't think that
people won't remember
the sham job that the
Longhorns got the last
time around.
The Sooners should
be good this season
with a returning cast
led by Heisman trophy
winning quarterback
Sam Bradford, but
who's going to block
for him? Only one line-
man returns in 2009 and
Bradford may have to
use his legs a little more
than he wants this
season.
On the bright side, the
Sooners defense should
be one of the stronger
units in the Big 12. The
bad thing about that is
that every team in the
Big 12 has a pretty good
offense and the defense
will have to be on top
of their game each
and every week. The
schedule's difficult and
though the Sooners are

CHS grad Levi
McFatter will play
in the Swamp.
By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
One man's appetizer is
another man's feast.
Charleston Southern
University will play the
University of Florida in the
Swamp on Saturday. Kickoff
is 7 p.m.
Billed to be the first of
two warm-up games for the
Gators (Florida is an early
73-point favorite) before
the SEC schedule, the
Buccaneers of Charleston
Southern are expecting to
be more than meat.
Columbia High graduate
Levi McFatter is a starting
offensive lineman for the
Buccaneers. The redshirt
sophomore is looking for-
ward to the challenge.
McFatter listed Florida
as his favorite team in his
senior profile in the 2006
CHS football program.
"It is a dream come true
for me," McFatter said on


Sunday. 'To play in the
Swamp and prove what I've
got is great."
McFatter started four
games in 2008 and came
into his own as the sea-
son progressed. Now, he
is entrenched on the offen-
sive line.
"I kind of felt my way
through college ball that
year, but I fought my way
up," McFatter said. "I am
looking forward to starting
all games at left tackle."
Charleston Southern
has a spread offense, and
McFatter and his teammates
will be facing a defense that
returns 11 starters.
"Our coaches are telling
us their front four are all
NFL prospects," McFatter
said. 'This week we will be
looking at film on them. We
have a bunch of good guys
up front this year and we.
look at it as an opportunity
to see what we've got and to
get better."
Charleston Southern
opened the 2008 season at
Miami, but the buzz sur-
rounding Florida is off the
charts.


"We see what the televi-
sion people say," McFatter
said. "We expect (Tim)
Tebow to do his thing. We
want to play to our ability
and see how we match up
against them."
Charleston Southern is
FCS (old Div. I-AA) and
plays. in the Big South
Conference. More tests fol-
low Florida - Wofford in
week two and South Florida
in week three.
Coastal Carolina,
Gardner-Webb, Liberty,
Presbyterian, Stony Brook
and VMI are the confer-
ence teams and Charleston
Southern will play all of
them in the final six games
of the season.
A conference champion-
ship is essential to making
the FCS playoffs.
"We are playing for a
championship win this year
and I think this game pre-
pares us for the season,"
McFatter said. "We will see
what kind of talent we have
got on the field. It will help
us mature as a team, if we
play to the best of our ability
and see where we stand."

Tigers must bounce back


Columbia travels
to Georgia for
"Border Wars".
By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.com
Columbia High is ready
to turn up the intensity
after a game that shocked
the county.
There were players that
were noticeably upset after
Fort White's 13-12 win
against the Tigers in the
kickoff classic. Those are
the players that coach Craig
Howard feels are noticeably
ready to work.
"We are working hard.
There's a sense of urgency
now," Howard said. "We have
a great challenge in front of
us against Charlton County
(Ga.). They're a team that
won their classic 38-0. They
have a great quarterback,
who's very agile. They have
a great running back, Perry
Elison, who's a fireball. They
can create challenges with
an unbalanced line and
we're going into a hostile
environment."
One of the players who
has turned up the intensity
the most is junior defensive
lineman Timmy Jernigan,
who proclaimed earlier
this week that no county in
America would work hard-
er than the Tigers from this
point forward.
"I'm glad he made the
statement,'" Howard said.
"It can change our program.
Our best players should be


Columbia High's Timmy Jernigs

the hardest working. They
worked hard this morning
and have to maintain the
grind."
Tiger Powell will be
another one of those play-
ers expected to step up
after failing to convert near
the goal line against the

Indians' defense in the kick-
off classic.
"He's one of the best
backs in the nation and
we'll count on him to be a
big player," Howard said.
"He knows that he has to
bounce back."
The Tigers look to see


the improvement in week
one that will prove to people
that they will be a team to
contend with in the upcom-
ing season.
"Sometimes in football
that biggest improvement
is made between the first
and second week," Howard


said. 'The interesting thing
about Florida high school
football is that you're
allowed to have these kick-
off classics. It's an opportu-
nity to get the kinks worked
out. I think we'll be a lot
more game ready. We have
to, we must and we will."

good with games against
BYU, Miami, Texas, Kansas,
Nebraska, Texas Tech and
Oklahoma State,."Soonet" or
later they're going to lose.
3. USC - We've read
the' story about USC hav-
ing to replace a quarter-
back before. First there
was Carson Palmer, who
gave way to Matt Leinart
Then there was John David
Booty and Marc Sanchez.
Now, the Trojans look
to break in Matt Barkley.
Let's face it, playing quar-
terback for the Trojans is
one of the easier jobs in
the nation with the amount
of talent hell be surround-
ed with and an easy sched-
ule to navigate. If he's able
to make it out of the box
early with a win over the
Buckeyes look for the
Trojans to battle late into
the season for a chance at
the national title.
2. Texas - There
might not be a team hun-
. grier for a chance at the
national championship
than the Texas Longhorns.
After Michael Crabtree's
miraculous catch to keep
the Longhorns out of the
national title game last
year, Texas has something
to prove in 2009.
Colt McCoy may not
have a Heisman at his
side, but don't think for a
second that he isn't just
as capable as Bradford or
Tebow to lead his team
to the Rose Bowl for the
title game this season. He
also happens to have one
of the best receivers in
the nation to throw to in
Jordan Shipley.
The bad news for the
Longhorns is that they'll


have one of the toughest
three game stretches in
the nation to grind through
in October. Texas plays
Oklahoma at a neutral
site before traveling to
Missouri and Oklahoma
State. The good news is
that the rest of their sched-
ule sets up pretty favorably.
1. Florida - It's no sur-
,piise that the Gat6rs sit on-
top of the poll with pretty
much everyone around the
nation picking Florida to
repeat in 2009. Everyone's
heard the stories about this
team. We know that Tebow
is one of the nation's best
athletes to ever play the
game. We know that the
defense returns everyone

from the championship
season last year.
Here's what we don't
know. Who will fill in for
Percy Harvin? With only
three days until the season
begins, we still don't have
an answer to that question.
The biggest question mark
for Florida this season
isn't whether they have
the overall talent, it will be
who's capable of making
that explosive play.
Fact is, Florida might not
need it with the defense as
stout as it is, but it's always
.nice to have a playmaker
for Tebow to dump it off to
in a pinch.
If all goes right, the
Gators will make a repeat
performance this season.

JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter
Fort White High's Roy Blake (41) makes a tackle in the win over Columbia High on Friday.

Tough foe after 'classic' win


Fort White High
football validated
the faith of its
many fans with
a 13-12 win over
host Columbia High in the
kickoff classic game.
The celebration was
sweet, but Fort White faces
an even tougher
program this week, when
the Indians travel to
Madison County High.
The victory over


Columbia was a sharp-
stick-in-the-eye notice to
the established school in
Columbia County.
Madison County has
shut down Fort White
five times in the past four
years, as both team resided
in the same district.
The Cowboys are one
year removed from a state
championship, and lost to
eventual 2A state champion
Bolles School in the third


round last year.
Madison County has
appeared in the state
playoffs 14 consecutive
years and won District
2-2A every season since
the realignment in 1999.
During its time in Class
2A, Madison has won two
state titles and finished
runner-up twice. In 2007,
the Cowboys beat Fort
White in the second round
en route to its state title.

Bayway cleans up with on-call, caring service


t his Bayway
Services
business,
owner Leigh
Rowbotham
meets many of his clients
at a low point in their lives.
Smoke damage after a fire or
water damage after a flood
situation causes his cell
phone to ring at all hours.
Many times, people are
frantic because their prop-
erty has suffered tremen-
dous harm. His job is to
calm them down, handle the
cleanup and work as the go-
between with the insurance.
company.
"It's quite an emotional
thing when you walk into
your house with three-to-
four inches of water or you
are sorting through after a
fire," Rowbotham says. "You
may not be talking sense.
We're the calming factor.
Whatever has happened, we
try to do the best we can for
our customers. We focus on
customer service and pro-
viding the best service we
can on the job."
Leigh and Sharon
Rowbotham purchased
Bayway Services, a commer-
cial and residential janitorial
and emergency water and
smoke damage business
two years ago from longtime
Live.Oak owners Bob and
Sharon Livesey.
The Rowbothams
moved to the U.S. from
Birmingham, England,
because they loved Florida.
They wanted to start a
business and pursue the
American dream.
Leigh's father, William
Rowbotham, owned and
operated a similar cleaning
and restoration business in
the United Kingdom. His
mother, Maureen Price, is a
professor of cleaning scieric-
es in the U.K., specializing


TODD WILSON/Lake City Reporter
Bayway Services owner Leigh Rowbotham (left) stands by one of the company's service vans with former owner Bob Livesey.
Rowbotham purchased the 20-year-old business two years ago and continues to grow it in the Lake City and Live Oak mar-
ket. The company provides full janitorial services and carpet cleaning, as well as emergency water extraction and fire damage

in developing new sanitary
cleaning methods for hospi-
tals and other commercial
operations.
"We had been coming to
America for about 10 years,
doing the typical trips to
Disney and so forth. We
really like it here," Leigh
Rowbotham says. "We're
both workaholics and our
family business in the U.K.
was very similar to this, so
we decided to look around
and see what was available."
They used a business bro-
ker and found that Bayway
was for sale. After checking
out North Florida and com-
pleting what he describes
as a mountain of federal
paperwork to qualify to own


an American business as a
citizen of another country,
a deal was struck and the
Rowbothams were in busi-
ness.
"We instantly jelled with
the Liveseys and it worked
out," Rowbotham says. "We
work closely with them,
since they have such a vast
knowledge of this business
and the area."
Bayway Services, based
in Live Oak, primarily cov-
ers Columbia and Suwannee
county customers with its 13
full-time and eight part-time'
employees, but has recently
expanded to include an area
ranging from South Georgia
to Starke to Perry.
The company has been


selected a Best of the
Best janitorial service by
the readers of the Lake
City Reporter for the
past two years, since the
Rowbothams purchased it.
Bayway provides janitorial
services for commercial and
residential locations. It also
cleans carpets, upholstery,
rugs, tile and grout, in addi-
tion to emergency water
cleanup and fire restoration.
"We give good, per-
sonal service and people
see results in the work,"
Rowbotham says. "If there's
an emergency anywhere in
our area, we can usually be
there in less than two hours.
Many timeswe're there in
less than an hour."


Rowbotham says he
enjoys how the job changes
every day.
"We're on call 24-7, 365
days a year," he says. "You
can kick off your shoes on
Sunday afternoon and think
it's time to relax and then
the phone rings. It's excit-
ing."
The business has seen its
share of unusual emergency
cleanup calls. While the fire
and flood restoration jobs
are sometimes devastat-
ing to the clients, there are
other calls that evoke laugh-
ter and unique humor.
An emergency call to the
aftermath of a Gainesville
fraternity party reveale6a
skunk had been placed in


the trunk of a car and the
smell left behind was over-
whelming.
"It took a bit, but we got
the smell out," Rowbotham
says. "If it can be cleaned,
we can clean it or restore it."
Several years ago, a.
Bayway driver answering
a call on U.S. Highway 129
South was surprised when
a low-flying wild turkey
slammed into the service
van's windshield and landed
in his lap.
"Some days, we
have excitement here,"
Rowbotham says, laughing.
Rowbotham says he con-
tinues to be a consistent
advertiser in the Lake City
Reporter because newspaper
advertising works. When .the
advertisements are placed
in the newspaper, the phone
rings.
"I get seriously good
response from my ads in the
Lake City Reporter," he says.
"We track it closely and we
always get customers from
the ads we run in the news-
paper. It works well for us
and I'm very pleased with
the response we get."
Rowbotham says his
family's move to America
has been a rewarding expe-
rience.
"People have really
opened up and supported
us and welcomed us to the
community," he says. "The
lifestyle and the culture
shock were a bit of a shock
at first. We were from a city
environment. Here, people
stop you and ask how you're
settling in, how the wife is
doing. It's very nice."

Honda Owners Left


Out in the Cold

Local Honda Dealer Welcomes Them with Open Arms


Gainesvile, FL
The Government's C.A.R.S. or
Cash for Clunkers program was wildly
successful. Consumers traded in
older, gas guzzling vehicles for new,
safer, more fuel efficient models with
government rebates up to $4,500.
Amidst the jubilee of new car sales, a
particular group found themselves
excluded from the excitement and
opportunities. Owners of late model
Hondas who thought they would
qualify found that they were left out in
the cold due to the Government's strict
federal guidelines.
Now that the Government's


program is over, local Ho
Wade Raulerson
Honda at 3801 North
Main Street in
Gainesville is offering A
current Honda owners
a chance with Wade
Raulerson Honda's
Clunker Trade-in
Program. '"This is
actually a great oppor-
tunity for both us as a
dealership and current
Honda owners," said
Jason Dillon, used car
manager for Wade
Raulerson Honda.
'The supply of quality

vehicles is


extremely low and demand is at an all
time high. The bulk of our inventory
comes from trade-ins. Before the
Cash for Clunkers program it was
difficult to keep $10,000 or less
vehicles in stock, now it's almost
impossible. They're sold as soon as
we get them in," said Dillon.
While it seems Wade Raulerson
Honda is focusing on Honda owners,
they concede that the market is ripe for
trades of all types, from late model
Toyotas, Nissans and Fords to luxury
Interested consumers should contact


Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Lexus
models. Wade Raulerson Honda is
looking to replenish their shortage as
soon as possible making now the
perfect time to trade in your current
vehicle for a newer model Honda
today.
'"With so many vehicles being
destroyed in the Cash for Clunkers
program, prices have begun to rise at
the auctions and everyone is search-
ing for a way to fill their lot and keep
prices low. We figured who better to
offer up to $4,500 for their trade-in than
current Honda owners who may have
felt snubbed during the Government
program," added Dillon.
Those who
S were unable to qualify
for the Government's
V a gleat Cash for Clunkers
program should bring

Honda.
' 4"It's really a
t Honda blessing in disguise for
Honda owners that
were unable to cash in

'Hondas are ranked
with the highest resale value of any
vehicle on the market, and we're
offering top dollar when you trade
yours in right now. With these kinds of
offers, we're confident we'll fill our used
lot up quickly."
Interested persons looking to trade
in their late model Honda or other late
model vehicle should contact' Jason
Dillon at Wade Raulerson Honda's
