Chief: ISO rating in 'good shape'


Lower ratings
reduce insurance
premiums.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
New Insurance Services
Office (ISO) fire rating
standards have caused ISO
ratings in other areas to
increase, but for now, the
Columbia County rating will


remain at
its same
level.
ac iThe ISO
is the lead-
ing suppli-
.er of data
Atkinsand analy-
Atkinson sis for the
property and casualty insur-
ance industry. Lower ISO
ratings could mean reduced
insurance premiums for
some residents. Columbia


County has an ISO fire rat-
ing of 5/9, Fort White has a
4 ISO rating and Lake City
has a 3 ISO rating.
. ISO ratings are based on
manpower, water supply,
fire hydrants and proximity
to a fire station.
Columbia County Fire
Chief Tres Atkinson said
the Columbia County ISO
fire rating has not increased
because the county ISO
was graded within the last


few years.
"They (ISO inspectors)
go through a process of sev--
eral years at a time before
you have to redo their grad-
ing process," Atkihson said.
"Our ISO rating is in good
shape because we are so
recent."
He said if the county fire
department was to ask for
a new grade or an upgrade
then it would be subject to
the new guidelines that-ISO


has recently published.
."If we were to try to do
that,we would have some
shortfalls that we've not
been able to meet yet,
but because we've been
recently graded we're in
good shape," Atkinson said.
"We've got time to work
on the new ISO regulations
and get to those standards
before we ask for a new
grade."
The Columbia County


Fire Department has
received a copy of the new
ISO guidelines and fire
department officials have
spoken to the fire services

Fire Services Office and

The City of Lake City
Charter Review Committee
learned its role and respon-
sibilities at its first meeting
Tuesday.
The city charter man-
dates every 10 years a
committee is formed to
study and review the docu-
ment and bring any chang-
es, said City Attorney
Herbert Darby. The board
is appointed by city coun-
cil members and has 90
days to present its recom-
mendations. The 90 days
for the committee began
March 1.
"It's a very important
committee," he said. "It's a
lot of responsibility and a lot
of authority."
Ultimately, voters decid-
ed on making the changes
a part of the charter.
"It's necessary to have
public meetings to let the
public have the opportuni-
ty to discuss the charter,"
Darby said.
Any changes the commit-
tee suggests for the charter
must be supported by the
majority of the group, he
said.
These changes are pre-
sented in an ordinance to
the council and then put'
before voters in a referen-
dum election.

crash

FHP: Alcohol
may have been
a factor. -
From staff reports

BRANFORD A West
Virginia man died late
Monday night after he lost
control of, his vehicle on a
dirt road near the Three
Rivers Estate area 'in
Suwannee County, accord-
ing to reports.
Florida Highway Patrol
officials are investigat-
ing the death of Jamie Lee
Tucker, 31, of Camden On
Gauley, W.V.,, who died in
the single vehicle wreck.
Preliminary investigation
by FHP believes alcohol
may have been a factor in
the crash.
According to reports, at
approximately 11:50 p.m.
Monday, Tucker was trav-
eling south on 41st Road,
just north of 280th Street,
in a 1995 Plymouth van.
Investigators believe he was
traveling at a high rate of
speed, lost control of the
van and allowed it to drift
toward the right side of the
roadway. When he attempt-
ed to bring the vehicle back
onto the road, he swerved
into a wooded area adjacent
to the road. The van struck
several trees, and Tucker
was ejected from the vehicle
as a result of the collision.
He was pronounced dead
at the scene by Suwannee
County EMS and his body
was taken to the 4th District
Medical Examiner's Office
in Jacksonville. Results of
the toxicology test were not
available at press time.


Dicks to be recognized at MADD festival


Honored for
his support of
the arts.
By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter., corn
Columbia County resi-
dent and musician Lenvil
Dicks will be recognized
during this year's MADD
Spring Arts Festival, set to
take place March 26 and 27
in downtown Lake City.
The two-day festival,


which celebrates music,
art, drama and dance, will
showcase the talent of the
North Florida area. The
event will feature per-
formances by local and
regional musicians, actors
and artists.
Dicks, a former band
director at Columbia High
School and renowned trum-
pet player, will be honored
for his support of the arts
during the second annual
event. Alfonso Levy was
honored during, the 2009


festival, and executive
director and organizer Tony
Buzzella said he could think
of no one better to honor
this year than Dicks. The
festival board voted unani-
mously to recognize him at
this year's event.
"He has been very good
to the arts in Columbia
County, especially music,"
Buzzella said, noting that
Dicks has given thou-
sands of dollars out of his
pockets over the years for
band equipment, instru-


ments and other music-
related items.
"His philosophy is that no
child should be deprived an
experience in the arts just
because they can't afford an
instrument," he said.
In addition to serving as
band director at CHS, Dicks
was 1st Trumpet in the
5th Army Division Band,
1st Trumpet in the Dallas
Symphony Orchestra and
1st Trumpet in the Summer

FWC: No news on bear


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.corn

Fl6rida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
officials have not received
any new reports about the
black bear cub that was
found in a local neighbor-
hood Monday afternoon.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
public information coordi-
nator Karen Parker said no
one called about the bear
Tuesday. They believe it
climbed out of the tree but
possibly reniains in the area.
She said FWC law enforce-
ment officers and biologists
are monitoring the situation
closely.
"He's still out there appar-
ently, but we've not gotten
any reports today," she said
Tuesday afternoon.
The bear was last seen
in a Live Oak tree Monday
afternoon near a home on
Northwest Clubview Circle.
FWC officials asked resi-


dents to clear the area to
give the bear an opportu-
nity to come down.
During the past three
days, FWC officials have
received four reports about
the bear roaming through a
local neighborhood.
"The Lake City Police
Department called, the
Columbia County Sheriff's
Office called and a security
officer called," Parker said.
"A couple of times FWC offi-
cers went out there and the
bear was already gone."
According to FWC
reports, the weekend
reports were the first
bear complaint reports in
Columbia County for 2010.
"This time of year is a bit
early for bears to be wan-
dering around, looking for
food sources within their
home range," said Rebecca
Shelton, FWC wildlife assis-
tance biologist in a pre-
pared statement. "However,
it's possible this bear could
have been driven from


his range in the Osceola
National Forest by a larger
bear. We do have a healthy
populations of bears in Pin
Hook Swamp."
Parker advised residents
who live in the area to give
the bear a wide berth if they
encounter it.
"If you care, don't feed
the bear," she said. "It's it
becomes habituated, espe-
cially if it's lost and trying
to find its way and it gets
used to getting into gar-
bage and people giving. it
handouts, then it's going
to stick around and get big-
ger. Then, if it becomes a
nuisance we're going 'to
have to step in and probably
euthanize it. Nobody wants
that to happen."
FWC officials issued sev-
eral press releases Tuesday
listing tips for residents
to lower their chances of
encountering bears.
Tips included not
storing pet food on screen
porches.

working on, but we are not
asking for a new grade any-
time soon," Atkinson said.
"The new things they are
asking for are kind of costly


and during a budget crisis
we don't feel that's a good
idea for us:"
He said several of the
new ISO guidelines are
manpower driven, and fire
stations will be graded indi-


vidually instead of as an
entire department.
"Ifs just the way they iden-
tify how many people can
get on the scene and a lot of
that is driven through recom-
mendations," Atkinson said.

School board analyzes


booster guidelines


By LEANNE TYO
Ityo@lakecityreporter.com

Booster clubs within the
Columbia County School
District could soon have a
set of guidelines to oper-
ate under to assist them in
their work.
The Columbia County
School Board discussed
implementing ground
rules for the booster clubs,
among other agenda items,
at its meeting Tuesday
night.
The proposed guidelines
will be

ing what


they do,"
said Glenn
Hunter,
a school
board
member.

Millikin goal is to
puttogeth-
er a working tool so we can
work together with parents
and the community to help
them ensure their autono-
my so we don't inhibit their
ability to help raise funds
and bring resources to the
programs they're involved
in," he said.
Mike Millikin, superin-
tendent of schools, said
the board does not want'
to take away the Boosters'
("ability to govern them-
selves."
"We salute their hard
work," Millikin said, "and


we want to maintain our
healthy relationship with
them without imposing our
will on their groups."
Booster clubs are "sup-
port organizations" of par-
ents and the community
that work to promote extra-
curricular activities in the
schools, Hunter said.
Hunter also said the
booster clubs'have provid-
ed millions of dollars for
the school district and.its
facilities through their fund-.
raising.
"We could not survive
without boosters," he said.
"With their efforts, they're
creating processes that
enhance the programs their
children belong to."
Hunter said the proposed
rules will be discussed at
the school board's upcom-
ing retreat on March 18.

OUR
OPINION


Fire safety

March's

mantra


Reporter highlights
a heightening dan-
ger of the season:
bush fires.
Following that report of a
man severely burned when his
trash fire escaped confinement,
Columbia County fire officials
are again urging residents to
use caution before striking a
match.
We couldn't agree more.
Only because of the quick
response of our firefighters did
Columbia County avoid serious
consequences from not only
that, but four other fires on
Monday.
Many brush fires have a
common denominator a
human element. From failure
to use proper containment to
Neglecting to factor weather
'conditions, many fires that
blaze out of control begin with
-simple carelessness and the
choice not to take proper
precautions.
Such a cavalier'attitude
is nothing less than playing
with fire, and North Florida
including Columbia County
can attest to the danger of
that.
March weather conditions
are optimal for long, hot fires.
Because of this, even firefight-
ers take the month off from
prescribed burns.
We would do well to follow
their example.

TO


Scripps Howard's
liberal bias
To the Editor:
I have to take issue with
another of your Scripps
Howard columns by an
unnamed author.
It is obvious to me that the
news service employs the ser-
vices of a group of liberal-biased
writers who have no intention
of-letting facts get in the way
of their agenda, which is to aid
the progressive movement in
Washington and to smear the
opponents of it in the conserva-
tive camp.
The article I refer to is
the one degrading Sen. Jim
Bunning (March 4, "A little
late for Bunning to get reli-
gion") and his recent blockage
of the $10 billion dollar bill
extending unemployment
benefits.
He has been asking the


THE EDITOR

administration to spend some
of the "stimulus' money which
most voters don't know is not
even half spent yet.
That isn't even mentioned in
the story, nor is the "pay-go"
bill which is legislation that
requires that the passage of bills
containing new spending must
also specify where the money,
will come from.
The writer blasts the GOP
as "the uncaring party of no,"
but if Americans don't start say-
ing "no" to the latest spending
spree in Washington, we will
find ourselves in the middle of
a depression the likes of which
most have never seen.
When that happens, there
will be no one to blame but
those who keep whining about
the unwillingness of some to
subscribe to more and more
give-away programs.
The column says, "Bunning's
objection to the bill is that


Congress should not be enact-
ing legislation that the country
can't afford and can't pay for,"
which is one of the most com-
mon sense statements I've
heard out of Washington this
year.
The statement that gave the
writer away is, "one wishes he
had felt that way when he voted
for the Bush tax cuts."
Only a liberal/progressive
bureaucrat could possibly
equate "tax cuts" with some-
thing that has to be paid for.
Tax cuts are merely "allow-
ing" earners to keep more of
their own money instead of
giving it to the government to
"waste" on more social engi-
neering.
Liberals will never run out of
"emergencies" they must solve
with someone else's money,
of course.

Lumber company looking

for relief from city lease


ANTONIA ROBINSON/Lake City Reporter
Tom Sawyer, City of Lake City airport manager, goes over a map of the Lake City Municpal
Airport, while Councilman George Ward looks on.



Hospital Authority to develop

property in downtown area


By ANTONIA ROBINSON
arobinson@lakecityreporter.comn

Great South Timber &
Lumber may see some relief
in paying its rent to the City
of Lake City, but not in the
way originally wanted.
The airport committee
voted to recommend to
council the city retain its
present lease with Great
South Timber & Lumber,
at its meeting Monday.
However, with the approval
of the FDOT and FAA it will
evaluate land value to deter-
mine if it is able to renegoti-
ate leasing conditions.
Great South previously
sent a letter to the city,
dated Nov. 10, asking it to
reduce or suspend its lease


for the remaining time going down long before the
until the economy turns word recession surfaced,"


around.
However, City Manager
Wendell Johnson respond-
ed in a letter Nov. 18, stat-
ing the city would be unable
to grant the request for rent
modification.
Representatives from the
company came to the com-
mittee for a final plea.
The current lease
between the company and
city began Sept. 9, 2006 and
was based on the current
times and conditions, said
Roland Stern, president of
Great South Timber. The
company started experienc-
ing an economic downturn
that year.
"The lumber market was


he said.
The company has con-
tinued to operate without
letting go any of its employ-
ees, but production is down
by nearly half.
"We're asking for some
relief on the city lease," he
said.
If the city reduced Great
South Timber's lease, it
would stand to lose money,
Johnson said. The economy
has also effected the city,
forcing it to cut costs.
Also, the city would not
be able to only reduce Great
South Timber's lease.
"If we do that, it would
set a precedent for every
tenant out there," he said.

The Lake Shore Hospital
Authority Board is taking
the next step to develop
property its collected in the
downtown area.
During the board's reg-
ularly scheduled monthly
meeting on Monday, offi-
cials named and ranked the
three finalists who could
build some of the suggest-
ed doctor's offices or clinics
adjacent to Marion Avenue.
During the discussion,
Authority Board Chairman
'Marc Vann said 12 archi-
.tects and engineering firms
responded to the Hospital
Authority's request for pro-
'posal to build up to 10,000
_square feet of office space
.,between Franklin and Leon
"streets, facing Marion
Avenue.
During the Hospital
Authority's December
meeting, board members
authorized a request for the
possible construction and
development of Hospital


Authority property on the
block of Marion Avenue
between Leon and Franklin
streets.
The Authority Board is
looking at the possibility of
building two or three medi-
cal office buildings for about
a total of 10,000 square feet
of medical space.
Vann said he, board
attorney Marlin Feagle and
board accountant Richard
Powell met on two different
occasions and discussed
the options and informa-
tion from the firms who
responded to the Hospital
Authority's request for pro-
posals.
Authority Board member
Audre Washington said she
didn't know the three were
going to rank and select final-
ists and asked that in the
future she be "kept in the
loop" when it comes to com-
mittee recommendations.
Vann, Feagle and Powell
narrowed the 12 proposals
down to a field of three final-
ists and ranked the three
finalists as part of theirrecom-


mendation to the Authority
Board Monday night.
Nicholas Paul Geisler
in conjunction with
the Freeman Design
Group, a local firm,
was the first choice.
Kasper Architectural, of
Jacksonville, was rated as
the second choice. The firm
is about 20 years old and
two of its engineers wrote
the TLC report detailing
suggested updates to Lake
Shore Hospital.
The third choice was listed
as Baker Barrios Architects,
of Orlando, which provided
the most detailed report on
the scope of work requested
and how they would handle
the job, construction sched-
ule and budget.
Board members plan to
negotiate with representa-
tives from Nicholas Paul
Geisler (Freemian) for ser-
vice fees for phase one 'of
the project preliminary
work for the building space
and building costs and
phase two plans for the
tenant.

LaJavier Baker will be trading in his Columbia,County Falcons cap when he joins the Albany Panthers of the Southern Indoor Football League.

Baker taking his game from semipro to arena
. iy ii iwk' -. .. . ...... ' .... ,. .. .. .


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
he next level for
Lajavier Baker is an
indoor suite. ,
The Lake City native
has signed to play
arena football with the Albany
Panthers of the Southern Indoor
Football League.
The SIFL consists of six
teams with a round-robin
schedule. Joining Albany are
the Columbus Lions, Houston
Lightning, Lafayette Wildcatters,
Greenville Force and Louisiana
Swashbucklers. There also may be
a team from Augusta.
The league begins play on'
March 20, but Albany get under


way on April 3 against Columbus
after a couple of bye weeks.
Baker has been playing with the
Columbia County Falcons semipro
team, after a season spent with
the Lake City Saints. A friend of
a college friend worked with the
Albany team and suggested Baker
to the Panthers' coach.
'"The were looking for linemen
and we talked on the phone that
night," Baker said. "I was playing
guard and had a couple of pancake
blocks in the game (vs. Duval
Cowboys) that week and told him
about that. The next week I had a
contract sitting on the table."
The SIFL plays the rules of
Arena Football and Arena II. A
big difference from the Falcons is
Baker will receive a paycheck.

rrgroup In SEI


"It ain't the NFL, but it is profes-
sional," Baker said. "They are not
big dollars, but I'll take what they
give me. Training camp begins
Monday."
Baker played under coach
Danny Green at Columbia High,
where he graduated in 2002. He
attended Lake City Community
College for one year, then accept-
ed an offer to play football at
Dodge City Community College
in Kansas. He was redshirted for
one year and play a season before
returning home.
"I had fun," Baker said.
"Basically, it gave me an oppor-
tunity to get looked at by bigger
schools. I didn't get that many
looks out of high school."
Baker had put in the weight


training under Green and kept it
up when out of football. At 325
pounds, he is 30 pounds heavier
than when he was a defensive line-
man for the Tigers.
When the Lake City Saints
semipro team came to town he
signed on. He stayed on when
the Falcons took over as the local
team.
"I played center, guard and
defensive tackle with the Saints,"
Baker said. "I have mostly played
guard this season. They have me
listed as OL/DL on the (Albany)
roster, but the coach said I was
No. 1 at center on his chart."
The switch from defensive line
to offensive line was no problem.

the traps and when to pull.
I like to initiate the con-
tact."
At 26 years old; Baker


had to convince momn
Annette Baker,
grandmother Ruth'
Williams and uncle
Richard Crusaw that he
still had a future in foot-
ball.
"My mom wasn't really
interested in it at first,


but I sat down and talked
with her and she is fine,"
Baker said. "My uncle is
a big football fan and my
grandmother just told me
not to get knocked down.
They have all supported
me, even from my pee wee
playing days."

LAKE CITY REPORTER


Michael-Patrick Studios services a cut above


xpert hair care
for anyone and
everyone has
always been a
selling point for
stylist Patrick Polk, and for
nearly 20 years, Polk has
striven to help make Lake
City a little more stylish,
one customer at a time.
"Our slogan is, 'If your
hair is not becoming to
you, you should be coming
to me,'" Polk said.
Polk, who owns and
operates Michael-Patrick
Studios in downtown Lake
City, is originally from
Atlanta and moved to Lake
City in 1991, but has ties
to this city that date back a
little further.
His father, Marcus Polk,
was a local doctor for
many years.
"He had an office here,
and that's how I was intro-
duced to, Lake City," Polk
said.
Polk finished his edu-
cation at Florida State
University in Tallahassee,
but originally studied in a
different field music.
"I knew it wasn't some-
thing I was going to make
a lot of money doing," he
said.
It wasn't until Polk
noticed a friend fixing a
woman's fingernail did
he realize he could see a
career in the styling busi-
ness.
"I thought it was the
coolest thing in the world,"
he said. "Because of that,
I had to rethink my educa-
tion."


JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter
Stylist Patrick Polk, owner of Michael-Patrick Studios in downtown Lake City offers a full range of;hair and cosmetic services..
The salon has been at its current location on North Marion since 2007, but Polk has had a Lake City business since the early


90s.

Polk eventually found
his calling in hair styling
- with some cosmetics
on the side and opened
The Cutting Edge in Lake
City in 1991. The business


Operated for 10 years, but
at the end of the lease,
Polk knew he wanted to
downsize for a more per-
sonal, intimate approach to
customer service.


He ran a business from
his home for several years
before opening his current
hair salon in downtown
Lake City in 2007.
"It's an industry I fell


UrVA


in love with over a period
of time, and I couldn't see
myself doing any other
thing," Polk said. "When
you see tears of joy, it's an
amazing, amazing experi-


ence. With that type of
confirmation and valida-
tion every day, why would
you leave that?"
It's a job he enjoys so
much, he can't stop. talk-
ing about it in fact, he
assembles a video blog, or
vlog, every morning on his
way to work that he posts
on YouTube.,
The topic? Typically,
work.
"I just love my job," he
said. "It's a lot of fun."
His studio offers every-
thing hair-related, Polk
said, including color, hair
restoration and extensions.
Services are available by
appointment only, but Polk
is always taking new cli-
ents to add to those he has
been serving, some for
nearly 20 years.
"We cater to everyone's
needs," he said.
Clients come about
through numerous means,
but he said many come
through his advertising
in the Lake City Reporter.
Polk advertises several
times a week in the news-
paper.
"The Lake City Reporter
has been a godsend to
me," Polk said. "Somebody
new comes in every single
week through advertis-
ing."
Michael-Patrick Studios
is located at 313 N. Marion
Ave. in downtown Lake
City, and appointments can
be scheduled by calling
758-9336 or 719-2230. For
