Losing libraries?


Cuts could force West Branch closure


S. JASON MATTHEW WALKER. I 'ty Reporter
Columbia County Public Library Director Debbie Paulson is:seen in the downtown branch on Friday. The appropriations com-
mittees in the Florida Hoyse and Senate cut all funding for Florida's State Aid to Public Libraries program. 'Without state aid
to'public libraries, we are forced to close the West branch,' Paulson said, 'Literacy programs will go away, more staff would be
laid off and we wouldn't purchase new.materials' for the libraries.' ..

T he Columbia
County Public
Library West
Branch could
close and other
services could be nega-
tively impacted if key state
funding is eliminated.
The Transportation and
Economic Development
Committees in the Florida
House and Senate drafted a
proposal to eliminate State
Aid to Public Libraries
in the 2010-2011 budget,
Wednesday.
State Aid to Public
Libraries is an annual
grant established to help
bring basic public library
services to all Florida
counties and enhance
services at existing ones,
said Deborah Paulson,
Columbia County Library
Director.
"A lot of libraries, espe-
cially in rural areas, don't
get money from their coun-

Matias (left), 10, Ruth, and Madeline Ault, 13, who all

crucial to help daily readings,' Ruth Ault said. 'There's so
much on TV and computers that we forget to simple pick up a
book and read it.'


.ty government," she said.
"Without state aid they
would pretty much close."
Over the years, the grant
has been reduced, but
never completely
eliminated.
The Columbia County
Library received a total


of $502,468 in state aid
for 2009-2010. No state
aid would mean the
elimination of the Literacy
Program, laying off 10 staff
members, less money to
purchase library materials
and the closing of the West
Branch, which opened in


2004.
More people are using
library services now
because of the economy,
Paulson said. Library
services are not a luxury
but a necessity.
, "In times of recession,
library usage goes up dra-
matically," she said. '"That
time is often when funding
is cut.'" .. .
Reducing state aid
is a bad deal for public
libraries in the state of
Florida and especially in
Columbia County, said
Columbia County Board of
Commissioners Chairman
Ron Williams.
"I'm mad as hell," he
said.
The state is continuing
to try and shift complete
funding for many areas,
such as the library, to
counties.
"We cannot absorb some
of the things they fund," he
said. "They're putting the

Scout's derby


sends winners


to Gainesville


Nearly 70 scouts
compete for
ribbons, trophies.

Cub scouts cheered on
their cars to victory at the
Pinewood Derby Saturday
at the Lake City Mall.
The Pinewood Derby is a
racing event for cub scouts,
said Mark Cook, event
organizer. The race had 68
participants of Tiger, Wolf,
Bear and Webelos Scouts
from a nine county area.
Scouts design and build
their own cars, which are
raced three at a time on
a 40-foot-long track, owned
by Chris Nye, he said. The
track is connected to a com-
puter which measures the
time to 1/1000 of a second


for each car.
Top finishers from each
series of races and an over-
all winner were awarded tro-
phies and ribbons, donated
by CBI Industries of Lake
City. Cars were also recog-
nized in areas such as origi-
nal design, workmanship or
judges' favorite.
Jimmy Ray Kite Jr., of
Lake City, receive best use
of imagination for his car.
This is his second time par-
ticipating in the derby, and
he plans to race again.
"I thought (the derby)
was something where kids
learn how to be creative,"
he said.
Each pack at its level
hosted races to qualify for
the event at the district
derby. Winners will move
on to the upcoming council

CRA to vote on

clean-up funds


Official: Ideally,
buildings, fence
removed.
By ANTONIA ROBINSON
arobinson@lakecityreporter.com
The City of Lake City
could soon set an example
for cleaning up property. "
The Community
Redevelopment. Agency
will vote on funding for a
cleanup of city property at
6:30 p.m. Monday in City
Hall. The mayor and coun-


cil meet as the CRA.
If approved, the vote will
go before city council at its
7 p.m. meeting to accept the
use of CRA funds for the
cleanup.
There are three old build-
ings and a dilapidated fence
on the city's property locat-
ed at 249 NE Escambia St.,
said City Manager Wendell
Johnson. Ideally, the build-
ings will be torn down, the
fence removed and the area
cleaned off.

Bowling strikes for CARC


Event raises
money for local
organization.
By ANTONIA ROBINSON
arobinson@lakecityrepprter.com
Local teams demon-
strated their bowling skills
at the 17th annual CARC
Bowl-A-Thon Saturday at
Lake City Bowl.
The CARC Advocates
for Citizens with Disabilities
- is a nonprofit organiza-


tion that assists its clients
in Columbia County, with
their needs, said Carol
Jewett, executive director.
Assistance includes resi-
dential services, indepen-
dent functioning and career
training.
Teams participating in
the event raised money for
the CARC and then had
friendly bowling matches,
she said. CARC clients also
participated in bowling.
First Federal Bank had
two first-time bowlers at the


event, said Kristen Register,
team captain.
"We had a lot of fun," she
said. "I like bowling."
The bowl-a-thon is a
good cause to support and
allowed Register's team
to work together to raise
money, she said.
Even though Lyndsi
Hygema said she's a ter-
rible bowler, this was her
fourth year participating
with her team, Columbia

OUR
OPINION


Sunshine

Week vital

to open

government-

Today marks the
beginning of
the fifth annual
Sunshine Week, an
observance of trans-
parency recognized by news
media in Florida and the nation
for the role open government
plays in ensuring the success of
our democratic society.
Some go as far as calling this
week a celebration of govern-
ment accountability, and they are
accurate for we have much to
celebrate. Because of legislation
enacted in 1992, government
transparency is the constitutional
right of every Floridian. From
public records and meetings to
electronic records and resumes,
complete access to the inner
workings of our government is
deeply embedded in our state
Constitution.
But while we have cause to
celebrate, we also have cause
for: concern. For each available
avenue toward open govern-
ment, there are roadblocks set
by local and state government
to deflect rightful transpar-
ency: inflated fees for record
requests, improper training on
thd part of government agents
and flat-out, albeit improper,
denial among them.
When records are denied the
process to pursue release can be
out of reach for many citizens.
Orie recent example comes
from Walton County. There,
a request for public records
ended up in court a lawsuit
eventually won by the private
citizen. The price tag for court
costs and legal fees: $148,000
to be paid by local government,
otherwise known as the taxpay-
ers of Walton County.
Because some enlightened
legislators are aware of the
importance of an open govern-
ment, several bills are now
before our lawmakers to solid-
ify the public's right to know.
Those bills include standard-
izing .such things as document
request fees and uniform free-
dom-of-information training for
government employees.
It is not only important that
Florida remain at the forefront
of such open government laws,
it is vital. With no public access,
there is no public accountability.
Already in this state, there are
movements to exempt 911 call
recordings and some law enforce-
ment photos and videos from
public record. These are pockets
of deep concern to all Floridians.
At the Lake City Reporter we
share those concerns, and echo
the importance of the awareness
this week brings to govern-
ment transparency. Like our
colleagues throughout the state,
we are committed to maintain-
ing our right and responsibility
as the record of note concerning
local and state government.
Maintaining and exercising
that right is not always easy,
and it is not a responsibility
we take lightly. But here in the
Sunshine State, the pursuit of
open government is one we
proudly embrace.

Recipe for Lake City Elephant Stew


M any years ago a
Lake City man
named Claude
Porter liked to
have a good
time telling gullible people the
recipe for making Lake City
Elephant Stew.
With a mock serious expres-
sion on his face, he would
explain that this stew was the
most delicious stew imaginable,
but you had to get the ingredi-
ents just right.
The recipe, according to
Claude, was to first take one six-
ton elephant, one small onion,
one small Irish potato, one small
carrot, and two rabbits (option-
al). This feeds 3,750 people.
Then kill, skin and debone
the elephant and boil him for
three days, then add the onion,
potato and carrot, and the rab-
bits, if used, and boil another
two hours or so.
However, do notuse the rab-
bits.unless a couple of extra
people show up, and you think
you might run short of meat
because (here it comes) most
Lake City people don't like to
find a hare in their stew!

Scoutmaster tribute
.The Boys Scouts of America
organization was founded in
1910 so that makes this year
its 100th anniversary. With that
in mind, I want to pay a brief
tribute to my scoutmaster, the
late Luther 0. Collier, who
was scoutmaster of the local
Methodist troop 87 for more
than 25 years.
He began his service as
what he called a "temporary,
assistant, interim scoutmaster,"
planning to serve only until his
son got one more merit badge
and attained the rank of Eagle
Scout.
But scouting got in his blood
and he stayed the Troop 87
scoutmaster for nearly three
decades, saw more than 35
youngsters through the rank
of Eagle and had an enormous

positive influence on the lives
of hundreds and hundreds of
youth, including and especially
me.
For his efforts, he was award-
ed theprestigious Silver Beaver
Award, an award presented
to those who implement the
scouting program through hard
work, sacrifice and dedication
over many years of service. It is
awarded only to those who do
not actively seek it.
His first five Eagle Scouts
were M. Luther Collier (1945);
Albert Johnson, Jr. and George
Ferree, Jr., (1946); and Morris
Williams and Tommy Ramsey
(1947).
His sixth Eagle Scout was
Eugene ("Cookie") Johnson
(1949), who later achieved the
rank of army major and was
killed in action in Vietnam.
The best tribute to
Scoutmaster Collier is, of
course, that even today all of us
still try to be good scouts.

Student fun
Back in 1986, fun loving
Lake City Junior High student
Bobby Coon sent this tongue-
in-cheek letter to the principal's
office. "Dear Principal, I ask
your permission to retire from
school the date of October 3,
1986. I have thought long and
hard about this matter and my
explanation is I just can't handle
all this schoolwork any longer.
Thank you very much for your
consideration."


As expected, Bobby was back
in school along with all his
classmates on October 4, but
everybody in the office got a
good laugh at Bobby's "retire-
ment letter."

Cemetery epitaphs
Some of the most heart-
touching words can be found
on tombstones in cemeteries.
Here are some from Oaklawn
Cemetery, our city's oldest.
Bessie and baby have gone
to dwell in our Lord and Savior's
immortal home, though their
blessed memory still dwells
with us.
Sleep on Sweet Margaret,
Take Thy Rest, God called thee
home, He thought it best.
How sad the loss when one
so loved is taken.
She was the sunshine of
our home.
The place made vacant in
our hearts by her passing will
never more be filled.
Her sweet flower now
transplanted to a clime where
never comes the blight of time.
Two of the epitaphs were in
Latin. "In hoc signo vinces,"'
next to a cross, means "In this
sign you will conquer." "Dum
tacet clamat" means "Though
silent, he speaks."
Also to be found there
were two unusual first names:
Poncheater Fisher and Civility
Hancock.

Changing minds
After University of Florida
coaches Billy Donovan and
Urban Meyer each resigned,
but then changed their minds
and returned to UF, someone
jokingly suggested that Florida
Field be renamed The Waffle
House and the Gators change
their shoe sponsor from Nike to
Flip Flop.
E Morris Williams is a local
historian and long-time Columbia
County resident.

health care

W hen Barack
Obama was
sworn in as
president,
he chose the
bible that Abraham Lincoln
used on which to take the oath
of office.
A little over a year later, as
President Obama strong arms
House and Senate Democrats
to pass a health care bill that
will nationalize 17 percent of
our economic lives a bill
that most Americans don't
want we ought to recall
Lincoln's famous words at
Gettysburg.
Dedicating the final resting
place for those who fought
there, Lincoln appealed that we
not let up in the struggle for
"government of the people, by
the people, and .for the people."
Democrats may soon
show, if we let them, that.the
American ideal of representa-
tive government govern-
ment of a nation, in Lincoln's
'words, "conceived in Liberty"
- is lost.
Bending rules into a proce-
dural pretzel, Democrats will
attempt to pass one of the larg-
est government takeovers of
private American lives in histo-
ry without a single Republican
vote and, against the will of the
people, Obama will sign it into
law.
Democrat pollsters Pat
Caddell and Doug Schoen
write in the Washington
Post, "... a solid majority of
Americans oppose the massive
health-care reform plan."
Pollster com, which reports'
an average of all polls, shows
that now for the first time dis-
approval for President Obama
exceeds approval 48.8 per-
cent to 47.5 percent.
According'to Gallup, just
21 percent of Americans are
satisfied with the direction of
the country, down 10 points
from spring of last year when
the health care reform push
began.
But this isn't about logic. Mr.
Obama and his colleagues on
Capitol Hill perceive a once in
a lifetime opportunity to grasp
the holy grail of the left and
realize the dream of transform-
ing America into a European
style welfare state. Democracy
what the American people
actually want is just not
going to stand in the way.
It isn't just about Republican
opposition. Nancy Pelosi must
persuade, bribe, and threaten
to get 216 House Democrats to
support this despite having 253
sitting House Democrats.
At the recent White House
health care summit, Rep. Paul
Ryan (R-Wisc.) challenged with
clarity the massive accounting
gimmicks and hallucinatory
economic assumptions that
Democrats have used to pres-
ent this massive budget busting
disaster of a bill as a prudent
deficit cutting measure.
In the one labora-
tory experiment we have
Massachusetts, which
enacted a state plan similar to
what Democrats want for the
nation premiums are now
the highest in nation, and per
capital health expenditures
are 27 percent higher than the
national average.
Every freedom-loving
American patriot that cares
about our future should be on
the phone today to their senators
and congressmen saying "stop."

Reference librarian Zulima Martinez restocks shelves Friday at the Columbia County Public'Library in downtown Lake City.
'Who is happy?' Martinez, who has been working for the library for six years, said about the situation. 'I think that the legisla-
tion is going to be overwhelmed with e-mails, because every patron I speak to goes to e-mail something to them.'

county in a bad situation."
Libraries across the
state would face the same
staff and hours reduc-
tions, or even closing, said
Faye Roberts, The Florida
Library Association execu-
tive director. She is also the
former Columbia County
library director
"It's no secret there's a
shortfall in the state bud-
get," she said. "Everyone
knows funding is tight for
all sorts of things."
Federal money would be
at stake if the state does
not maintain funding to the
libraries, Roberts said.
"It's important to get that
local support," she said.
The library is pushing
for citizens to contact state
officials by March 17 to ask
them to reconsider elimi-
nating state aid. Available
on the library's Web site,
http://www.ccpl.sirsi.net, is
a. link to an already drafted
message that users can fill

a resident of Lake City for

was born in Brandenburg, KY
to the late George J. & Mary

Paulson said. "It goes right
to key people."
Karen Parker, of Lake
City, and her husband,
Glenn, have already sent- a
copy of the letter, she said.
She also forwarded it to
friends.
Although the budget is
tight, cutting the library
funding is a bad idea, espe-
cially with illiteracy rates,
Parker said.
Also, in tough economic
conditions, she is able to
come to the library and bor-
row books instead of having
to buy them.
"I've always loved the
library," she said.
It would be a tragedy for
funding to be eliminated,
said Lisa Beach, of Lake
City. Her children often
come to the library after
school.
"They're hurting my chil-
dren," she said.
State Representative
Debbie Boyd (D-Newberry)
has already received more
than 100 e-mails from resi-
dents regarding the library

"I hope all the legislators
are receiving this number
of e-mails," she said.
There is to be a reduction
of $26 million in recurring
money from the state bud-
get, Boyd said. Of that, 8.4
percent is library funding.
"The library is impor-
tant to me, and I know it's
important to my constitu-
ents," she said.
It is important for citi-
zens to pay attention and
reach out to officials to let
them know what they think
and feel about government
actions.
"I'm glad people are get-
ting excited," she said. "The
squeaky wheel gets the
grease. "
Roberts said she is opti-
mistic citizens can make a
difference by voicing their
concerns.
"Let them know how you

said.

"They need to flood

Drains
Plumbers get more calls to open clogged
drains that for any other service. Many such
calls could be prevented by greater care in
the use of drains. The most-used drain is
the one in the kitchen sink and that is the
drain most often clogged. Preventing this
situation can be done by carefully watching
what is emptied into the sink drain and by
regular use of a safe biodegradeable waste
digester Your plumber can give you more
information on these products.
Sink stoppages are usually caused by lipid
fats, emulsified by warm dishwater and car-
ried through the pipes. The water cools as it
proceeds to the main sewer and leaves the
fatty deposits along the way, a film of grease
forms on the pipe wall, then another and an-
other. Coffee grounds and bits of food add
to this accumulation layer until the pipe be-
comes impassible. You should always pour
excess grease into a tin can and throw it out
with the garbage, not down the sink drain.
When using a food disposer, always let suf-
ficient cold water run to carry the tlarticles
down and into the main line to prevent build
up in tile smaller waste lines.
In thle even of a stoppage, you should
have a plunger, cup it tightly over the drain
and plunge it vigorously several times. If it
is a double drain sink, make sure you seal
the other drain, so water will not splash
out. Drain piping can also be cleaned by
removing the J-Bend on the trap below the
fixture. First place adhesive tape around the
packing nut or wrap the wrench jaws with
cloth to prevent scratching the metal sur-
face. It plastic piping is in place do not grip
the nuts to too tightly with the wrench, as
they can crack easily, Place a bucket directly
under the pipe to catch any drippings from
the open pipe. Pull out the clogging mate-.
rial with a piece of wire or small hand-turn
cable. If you take the tiap off, have some
new gaskets ready to slip into the joints. If
you still have )problems you may need to call
a professional plumbei.

By LEANNE TYO
Ityo@lakecityreporter.com
'The local Altrusa club
will be hosting a new event
this month that will raise

while benefiting businesses
that are close to home.
The Lake City Spring
Expo, hosted by Altrusa
International Inc., of Lake
City, will feature more than
30 local vendors and their
products for the public to
peruse and shop.
The expo will serve as the
club's major 2010 fundrais-
er to raise money through
vendor fees and ticket sales
that will later be donated
to local charities, said Jan
Smithey, Altrusa president-
elect and expo co-chair-
woman.
Altrusa is an internation-
al network of professionals

sonal service.
A variety of vendors will

made purses, art and home
decor at the expo, Smithey
said.
Those who purchase

The A&D Exteriors Mad Monkeys make up one of 18 teams that make up the 2010 Girls Softball Association of Columbia County. The season had its opening
pitch on Saturday.


Kennon named


new president .


By BRANDON FINLEY

Association
of Columbia
County rang in a
new season with
opening day ceremonies on
Saturday in Lake City.
With the new season,
the association also named
a new president.
Greg Kennon takes over
for Tim White, who had
previously served as the
president.
The new board includes:
Amber Crews, board
member; Butch Lee, board
member; Michelle Padgett,
Secretary; Kari Carter,
Treasurer; Paul Perry, Vice
President and Kennon.
Kennon saw the opportu-
nity as a chance to become.
more involved in the
community.
"I became involved about
five years ago," he said. "I
just wanted to get involved.
It gives the girls a chance
to exercise and be with
their friends. It also has
' rules and teaches disci-
pline in life. It's structured
and teaches kids to listen


to authority."
Both Kennon and
Padgett, who introduced
the fans to the new season
were quick to thanks the
parents for support of the
association.
"When we first started
the facilities were built
by the parents before the 1
county ever got involved,"
Padgett said. "We've come a
long ways, and we're thank-
ful to those that helped."
Padgett also mentioned
that it helped build self
esteem in the young female,
athletes so that they know
that they're able to compete
as well as the boys.
"It teaches them a skill,"
she said. "It teaches them to
compete and that they can
do it just like the boys. It's
going to give them a chance
to learn and have fun."
Like Padgett and
Kennon, most of the
board members have been,
involved for multiple years.
This year, the association
had more than 200 girls
sign up for play.
The goal for next season,
according to Kennon, is to
see that number continue
to grow.

School Board member Glenn Hunter (left) jokes with umpire Mike Paphides about who
should go first in throwing out the ceremonial first pitch of the 2010 Lake City/Columbia
County Youth Baseball season. The two had fields named in their honor. They threw out
the first pitch in unison.


Lake City/
Columbia County
Youth begin season.
By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.comrn
Mike Paphides and Glenn
Hunter didn't take a role in
the lifespan of youth base-
ball in Lake City for public
recognition. The two were,
however, honored for what
they've done for the Lake
City/Columbia County Youth
Baseball Association dur-
ing opening ceremonies on
Saturday.
Paphides has been the
head umpire for the youth
since 1996, and is currently
entering his 20th year as an
umpire.
"It's a way for giving back,"
said Paphides. "I played grow-
ing up at Memorial Stadium,
and they started building
these fields when I was 12.
Once I quit playing, I wanted


a way to stay involved. The
first game, I umpired third
base, and they asked me to go
behind the plate in the second
game of that day. When I grad-
uated from FSU in 1996 they
asked me back to become the
head umpire."
Hunter hasn't been involved
as an umpire, but he's been a
significant part in the forma-
tion of the association.
"Glenn has always been our
visionary person," said Jack
Muenchen, who was honored
with the first field named on
his behalf last season. "People
will never know how much he
has done for us."
Hunter played a role in
developing the youth baseball
leagues of Columbia County
as he noted when speaking to
the public about the honor.
"The baseball program
in our town was basically
defunct," Hunter said. "A

Anticipation High as Ohio Valley Gold and Silver Refinery


Opens for Business Tuesday in Lake City!


By CHRISTINA BUTLER
STAFF WRITER

Been following the gold and
silver market lately? Well if you have
a jewelry box or lock box full of gold
or a coffee can full of old coins you
should be according to Ohio Valley
Refinery spokesperson John Miller.
"The gold and silver markets have not
been this strong for over 30 years" said
Miller. Typically when the U.S. dollar
is weak and the economy is flai gold
and silver markets soar. "That's good
news if you are setting on a few gold
necklaces or an old class ring" says
Miller.
Starting Tuesday at 9am and,
every day this week through Saturday
the Ohio Valley Refinery is setting
up a satellite refinery right here in
Lake City at the Fairfield Inn. During
their 5 day stay anyone can bring gold,
silver or platinum items and turn them
in for immediate payment, explains
John Miller. "Just about everybody
has some amount of gold or silver just
'lying around collecting dust and this
week anybody can sell theirs direct to
our refinery. Typically selling direct
to a refinery is reserved for larger
wholesale customers like jewelry
stores, pawn shops, and laboratories"
says Miller. "We are changing how
business is done" he explains "we
want to do business with everybody
so we took our business to the streets".
"Our teams visits various cities around
the country hosting 5 day events
allowing the general public to take.
advantage of our services. The turnout
has been overwhelming" says Miller.
"Usually each day is busier than the
previous day. It seems once people
come to us and sell something they
are so amazed what an old ring or gold
coin is worth they go home and start
digging around for more and telling
relatives, friends and neighbors. It's
like a feeding frenzy by the third day.
People line up with everything from

silver and platinum items, as well as coins. Public welcome!


gold jewelry to sterling silver flatware.
sets to old coins. I think during this
bad economy everybody can use extra
money but most people say they are
taking advantage of selling direct to
our refinery because of the higher
prices we pay".
During this special event anyone
is welcome to bring all types of gold,
silver and platinum to the refinery
and turn it in for instant payment. The
types of items they will accept include
all gold jewelry, gold coins, gold
ounces, dental gold, old coins made
before 1964 including Silver Dollars,
halves, quarters and dimes, anything
marked "sterling" including flat ware
sets, tea pots, silver bars, silver ounces
and all industrial precious metals.
What should you expect if you
go to the event to sell your gold and/
or silver? Just gather up alltgold silver
and platinum in any form. If you are
not sure if its gold or silver bring it in
and they will test it for free. When you
arrive at the event you will be asked to
fill out a simple registration card and


Silver and Gold Coin Prices


Up During Poor Economy.


Collectors and
Enthusiasts in
Lake City with
$200,000 to
Purchase Yours!

By CHRISTINA BUTLER
STAFF WRITER

Got Coin? It might be just the
time to cash. in. This week starting
Tuesday and continuing through
Saturday the International Collectors
Association in conjunction with the
Ohio Valley Gold & Silver Refinery
will be purchasing all types of silver
and gold coins direct from the public.
All types are welcome and the event
is free.
Collectors will be on hand to
identify and sort your coins. Then the
quality or grade will be determined.
The better the grade the more they are
worth according to collectors I talked
to. With the silver and gold markets
high prices of older coins are too. Any
coins minted before 1964 in the U.S.
are 90% silver except nickels and
pennies.
The coins worth is determined
by the rarity and the grade. Old silver
dollars are worth a great premium
right now even well worn heavy
circulated ones are bringing good
premiums. Franklin and Kennedy
halves, Washing ton quarters,
Mercury and Roosevelt dimes are
all worth many times the face value.
While older types like Seated Liberty,
Standing Liberties, and Barber coins
are worth even more.
Gold coins are really worth a
lot right now according to Brian
Eades of the International Collectors
Association. This country didn't start
minting coins until 1792 says Eades.
Before that people would trade
goods using gold dust and nuggets.
Some shop keepers would take more
gold than needed to pay for items
purchased. There was no uniform


system of making change.
The government opened the first
mints and began distributing the
coins in 1792. By the beginning 'of
the 19th century coins and paper
currency were wide spread and our
monetary system was here to stay. In
1933 Roosevelt required all banking,
institutions to turn in all gold coins.
Once all banks turned in this gold
the president raised the gold standard
from $20.00 per ounce to $33.00
per ounce. This was his way of
stimulating the economy during the
great depression. However gold coins
were never redistributed after the
recall. Not all gold coins were turned
in. Many folks during that time didn't
completely trust the government and
choose to keep their gold.
These gold coins are sought
after collectors today and bring many
times the face value. Any gold coins
with the mint marks of CC, D or 0
will bring nice premiums. Collectors
at the event will be glad to show
you where to look. Other types of
coins will also be purchase including
foreign coins, Indian head cents, two
cent pieces, half dimes, three cent
pieces and buffalo nickels to name a
few.
Collectors warn people against
trying to clean their coins as
significant damage can be done and
the coins value lessened.


Items we will
accept include:
Scrap Jewelry
Dental Gold
Sterling Silverware
Sterling Silver Tea Sets
Silver Dollars
All Coins Dated before 1964
Industrial Scrap
All forms of Platinum


will be issued a number. Seating will
be available. When your number is
called you will be escorted to a table
where your items will be examined,
tested and sorted. This only takes a
few minutes using their expertise and
specialized equipment. Items will be
counted and/or weighed. The value of
the items will be determined based on
up to the minute market prices. Live
feeds will be available at the event
displaying current market prices of
all precious metals. If you choose to
sell your items they will be bagged
and tagged and you will be escorted
to the cashier to collect your payment.
Waiting time to sell your items may
range from just a few minutes to 1
hour so bring something to read.
If you are the owner of a jewelry
store, pawn shop, dentist office or
a dealer you are encouraged to call
ahead to make an appointment with
the smelt master to discuss their
special dealer programs. They -can
be reached during refinery hours at

Being

ethical

does

pay off
Let me give you one defi-
nition of ethics: It is good to
maintain life and to further
life; it is bad to damage and
destroy life. And this ethic,
profound, universal, has the
significance of a religion. It
is religion.
Albert Schweitzer

press out there
exposing the
questionable
ethics of our
businesses. Just look at
how deteriorating ethi-
cal standards caused the
demise of both Enron and
WorldCom. Consider all of
the companies that recently
received bail-out money
from the government and,
despite the dire financial
straits many of them were
in, went on to hold lavish
in'-iniu- or award their
staff with unreasonable
compensation. Yet another
example, Pfizer was recent-
ly fined $2.3 billion by the
government for its con-
siderable lapse in ethics.
They were selling a drug in
unapproved markets.
There are plenty more
examples of businesses
that have faltered ethically,
but the purpose of this
column is not to discuss
diminished ethical stan-
dards in business. Rather,
the point is to address the
question of whether or not
ethics and high-principled
values pay off. After all, if
businesses and corpora-
tions are going to change
their behavior or adopt
high ethical standards,
there should be some real
payoff besides the feeling
that the business is doing
the right thing. Of course,
just doing the right thing
has a very high payoff as
well.
Two researchers, con-
cerned about the value of
spending money on imple-
menting and promoting
a business' high ethical
standards, set up a study to
evaluate this very question.
In this study, 218 consum-
ers were broken down into
three groups, each apprais-
ing the same types of
products: coffee and
T-shirts. The first group
was told that the products
were manufactured by
businesses with high ethi-
cal standards. The second
group was told that these
same products were made
by businesses with low
ethical standards. Finally,
the third (or control) group
was not told anything about
the products or the busi-
nesses that produced them.
Within each group, par-
ticipants had to state what
price they would pay for
the products. The results
were the same for each
product: consumers would

Federal deadline
for tax returns is
April 15.
By TROY ROBERTS

Many
Columbia
County
residents,
along
with many millions of
Americans, are busy final-
izing tax returns ahead
of the mid-April federal
deadline.
And while some people
may be unsure of how
much money they are set to
receive or owe there
are several free options
available for assistance.
April 15 is the annual
deadline for tax return
due dates, and while many
Americans file their taxes
well ahead of the Internal
Revenue Service deadline,
there are always some who
wait until the last minute,
said Dan BOone, media
spokesman for the IRS.
"Our two busiest times
are February and April,
and the main reason for
that is because by the end
of January, most people
have their W2s and those
people who are getting
refunds between 70 and
75 percent of filers want
to file early," he said. "A
large percentage of those
who file around the April
15 deadline are those who
are having to pay, or those

Bertha Jackson, like many Americans, finds filing for federal taxes one of the most stressful times in her life, ranked just below
moving and planning a wedding. 'Probably some people would just about cry over this stuff,' she said. 'I would put it at about
an eight on a scale of one through 10 of the most stressful things. The stressful thing is getting them done.'


whose refund is not very
big."
More than 5.7 million
Floridians are projected
to electronically file their
taxes this year, meaning
they will have access to
their returns quicker than
if they filed through the
pen-and-paper method.
According to the IRS,
more than two-thirds of

ETHICS continued on 2C


Americans are now filing
electronically, and Boone
said this is a trend he
expects will continue to
grow.
The IRS is also expect-
ing a busy year for those
requesting extensions
- approximately 606,100
are projected to request an
extension from the agency
this year..


Some of those exten-
sions are requested
because of mistakes on
filed returns, especially
when there are new tax
laws or changes that are
unknown to the filer. This
year, for example, filers
may account for a $250
economic recovery pay-
ment, a vehicle tax deduc-
tion if they purchased a


new car in 2009, as well
as an energy tax credit if
energy-efficient improve-
ments were made to a
home last year.
And while the IRS
doesn't discourage
Americans themselves
from filing the forms or
from using a tax service,

PUBLIC NOTICE


NOT A PUBLIC


NOTICE?


Don't Let Florida Officials

Remove YOUR RIGHT TO KNOW

From The Newspaper


Keep Public Notices
In Your Newspaper!
Proposed legislation would remove
your right to read public notices in,
newspapers, restricting them to
government web sites only.
We're concerned.
You should be, too.
Public notices are an important tool
in ensuring an informed citizenry.
They have played a key role in
America's participatory democracy
where it counts most how your tax
dollars are spent and how policy is
made.
When located in easy-to-find
sections of your newspaper, they are
fully accessible to everyone, unlike the
Internet. Large segments of the state's
population, including more than half
of Floridians over 65 and one-third
of minority populations, do not have
Internet access. )
The public's right to know cannot
be abandoned in favor of cost savings
that are elusive.


Consider that less than 10% of U.S.
citizens view a government web site
daily, according to the U.S. Census
Bureau. This contrasts dramatically
with the 83% of adults who read a
community newspaper every week,
according to the National Newspaper
Association.
Furthermore, a public notice printed
in the newspaper produces a
permanent record. A newspaper is
archived for years, and is not subject
to computer crashes and hackers.
Newspapers are easily verifiable,
fully transparent and represent
an impartial third party. Giving
government singular responsibility
for distributing public notices is like
putting the fox in charge of the hen
house.
Newspapers are your watchdogs.
Keep it that way. Contact your local
representative today and voice your
opinion.

JA.SONI MATIHEW WALKERIL L1 a, ':.,
Jason Hadley, 25, rounds up extra tax forms Friday afternoon at the US Post Office in
downtown Lake City. 'The worst is the wait after you file taxes,' Hadley said. 'Some people
can't afford to not get it right away. It's the most hectic thing besides having.to pay taxes.'

TAX: Assistance is available.

there are other options
available to some people. If
a person makes less than
$49,000 annually or is 60
or older, there is free assis-
tance available through
VITA and AARP.
'This is through a pro-
gram that has been around
for a long time," Boone


said. "In both of these
programs, we have trained
volunteers and they set up
free tax help sites in librar-
ies, churches, shopping
malls and places like that,
and they will prepare and
file your e-file for you. We
highly recommend these
because we know these


people are certified by the
IRS if you're going to a
tax preparation business in
general, you don't always
have that guarantee."
Hundreds of sites are set
up nationwide, Boone said,
and interested residents
can find the nearest location
by calling (800) 906-9887.


ETHICS: Customers pay attention


Continued From Page 1C
cent more for the products
than the consumers in the
control group who knew
nothing about the ethical
environment in which the
products were manufac-
tured. That is, the findings
of this limited study showed
that consumers were will-
ing to pay a premium if they
knew the product they were
going to buy was made by
a business with high ethical
standards.
In the low ethics busi-
ness group, the consumers
penalized the companies
for their behavior, express-
ing a willingness to pay
20 percent less than the


control group for the same
products. As illustrated by
this study, the perception
of low ethical values by
businesses is very costly.
This study made one
additional important finding:
improving ethical standards
or behavior would only raise
prices to a certain level.
The overall implication
of this study is that hav-
ing high ethical standards
is more than just good
feelings. It is also good
business as high ethical
standards have a positive
impact on the price at
which firms can sell their
products. It just makes


sense that consumers
want to cast their vote in
the marketplace for those
firms that are upholding
high ethical values, and
conversely, will penalize
those that do not.
Now go out and make
sure your firm has high
ethical standards and that
this message is passed
along to consumers.
You can do this!

GARDEN TALK


Feeling the burn


Nichelle Demorest
dndemorest@ufl.edu .

Growing

vegetables

in 'mini

gardens'

Container gar-
dening is a
very popular
gardening
trend today,
rivaled closely by an explo-
sion of vegetable garden-
ing. Put the two together
and we have mini-gardens,
vegetable producing con-
tainer gardens that feed
family and friends. So
whether you live in an
apartment, house 6r boat,
you can take advantage
of small spaces and snip-
pets of sunshine for some
homegrown vegetables.
A wide assortment of
containers can be used, so
let your imagination go.
-Some readily available ones
include hanging baskets,
typical flower pots, house-
hold tubs, nursery pots and
baskets. But remember to
drill drainage holes or put
slits in plastic basket liners
to drain excess water.Any
metal containers should
be painted on the inside
.with asphalt paint. Clear
class containers should be
painted on the outside with
dark paint.
Make sure that the pot
size is big enough for the
plant you are growing.
Herbs, leaf lettuce, hot
peppers, strawberries and
summer radishes are good
choices to grow in six inch
diameter pots. Larger 10-
inch planters are suitable
for cherry tomatoes, spin-
ach, broccoli and bell pep-
pers. A half-bushel basket
is just ideal for a tomato,
eggplant, cucumber,
squash, beans and peas.
Use a bushel basket for any
vegetable or have some fun
with a group of different
plants.
Commercial bagged pot-
ting soil or soilless mix.is
a quick and easy way to fill
your containers. These are
preferred over garden soils
because they are lighter
in weight. They are also
treated to be weed free.
You can mix media such as
sand, perlite, vermiculite,
pine bark, compost or peat
and create your very own
signature blend of potting
medium.
Mixes containing organic
material will retain mois-
ture longer than our sandy
garden soils. If your medi-
um is porous with a lot of
sand or bark, you will need
to water more often, maybe
even twice daily during hot
weather. Smaller pots gen-
erally dry out faster than
larger pots. Leave about 2
inches at the top when you
fill the containers so you
have space to water and
to add a layer of mulch to
help retain moisture.
Even soil mixes with
plenty of organic matter
will need additional fertil-
izer to keep the plants
healthy.
Now choose your plants
and set your pots where
they will get at least six
hours of sunlight each day.

First-time Zumba instructor Sarah Sandlin takes her students through a warm-up exercise before subjecting them to the Latin international-dance inspired
workout at Teen Town. Zumba uses popular dances like belly dancing, salsa, merengue, hip-hop and calypso to name a few.

Recreation department offers popular Zumba exercise


By ANTONIA ROBINSON
arobinson@lakecityreporter.com
After Sarah
Sandlin went to
her first Zumba
class in Central
Florida two
years ago, she was hooked.
"A lot of my friends told
me how fun it was," the
Lake City resident said. "I
love to dance anyway."
She started off in the
back row but soon moved
up to the front of the class.
Now Sandlin is helping
spread the dance fitness
program in Lake City.
. Zumba is a dance fitness
program that fuses Latin
music and easy-to-follow
moves to create an exercise
routine. It was created by
celebrity fitness trainer Beto
Perez in the mid-1990s.
The program is taught in
more than 50,000 locations
in 75 countries and is now
offered through the City
of Lake City Recreation
Department.
Sandlin contacted the
recreation department
after becoming a certified
instructor and asked about
the possibility of starting a
Zumba class.
"We're always interested
in offering new programs
to the community," said
HeyWard Christie, recre-
ation program supervisor.


About 50 women participated in Zumba during the inaugural workout at Teen Town.


A free demonstration
class was held March 6 to
let the community observe
the program, and more
than 30 people were in
attendance. Participants
ranged in ages from the
teen years to the 80s.
"Most had never done
Zumba before," Sandlin
said.
Sonja Giebeig of Lake
City had seen Zumba on


TV and thought it looked
fun. She came to the class
and enjoyed the laid-back
environment while danc-
ing, she said.
"It's an easy way to exer-
cise in an hour," Giebeig.
said. "I loved all of it."
Although the class is
fun, it gives you a good
workout, said Carol Witt of
Lake City.
"It was very tiring," she


said. "I know how badly
out of shape I am now."
Witt said she would be
attending more classes and
even bring her friends.
"It was great," she said.
"The instructor was a lot
of fun."
At the first official class
Tuesday, there were 39
participants signed in,
Christie said.
"I observed the class


and it's great," he said.
Participating in Zumba
is not just exercising in the
traditional sense.
"It's dancing," Christie
said. "You don't think
you're exercising."
Everyone can work at
their own intensity, Sandlin
said.
Classes are from.5:30
to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesdays
and 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on
Thursday at the Teen
Town Recreation Center,
533 NW Desoto St. The
cost is $5 per class or $30
a month. Contact lakec-
ityzumba@gmail.com for
more information.
No special training is
needed to join the class,
just some "comfortable
workout clothes and
water," Sandlin said.
"A lot of people that
are reluctant and have
never done it, should
give it a shot," she said.
"Everybody's new."
The class is offered for
a reasonable price and a
great way to burn off calo-
ries, Christie said.
"And you'll have fun
doing it," he said.
Going to a Zumba class
is like going to a party,
minus the beverages,
Sandlin said.
"Just show up, whether
you like to be in the front
or the back," she said.

glad I came to Zumba.' (RIGHT) Lenore Matsubara, 68, works up a sweat during a calypso dance routine. 'It's great. Just what I needed,' she said.

Yes, I am bragging


My wife Kay
and I have
four won-
derful chil-
dren who
are now on the way to
very successful careers.
Our three girls, Amy,
Ketti and Megan, all start-
ed their academic studies
with the Associate in Arts
degree from Lake City
Community College (to
become Florida Gateway
College on July 1). Our
son, Todd, went directly
to the University of North
Florida on a partial base-
ball scholarship where he
earned a master's degree
in business finance, and
he now runs an office in
Melbourne for Brown and
Brown Insurance.
LCCC helped our three
girls, all of whom could
have gone directly to a
four-year college, but they
decided (with a little in-
house coaching) to start
locally. Amy, our oldest,
graduated from Columbia
High School in 1994, and
she wanted to be a pedi-
atric physical therapist :
just from something she
saw while at CHS. Amy
completed a pre-physical
therapy associate's degree
at LCCC, and then was
accepted into the physical
therapy program at UNF
where she graduated and
passed her PT license
exam.
Her first jobs were in
South Florida, and then
she moved to Kentucky.
where she became the
first pediatric PT at
Central Baptist Hospital in
Lexington.
Our third child,- Ketti,
*knew she wanted to be
a nurse. She was set
on going directly to a
university; she wanted
to become a Pediatric
Nurse Practitioner, which
requires a Bachelor of
Science of Nursing first.
I persuaded Ketti to
apply to the Associate in
Science in Nursing pro-
gram at LCCC, allowing
her to become a practic-
ing nurse in a little over
two years. She applied
and was accepted into
nursing after finishing her
prerequisite courses, and

knowing she definitely
wanted to obtain a bach-
elor degree, she also took
the courses to receive-her
Associate of Arts degree.
Near the end of finishing
both degrees at LCCC,
she went to UNF to see
about transferring into the
B.S. of Nursing program
there. UNF admissions
reviewed Ketti's grades
from LCCC and informed.
her transferring would be
no problem. Ketti passed
her nursing license exam
while at LCCC, and then
transferred to UNF where
she was granted 30 cred-
its for having her nursing
license, allowing her to
complete her bachelor's
in Nursing in one year.
The other advantages that
Ketti had was she could
work part time as a nurse,
and she did not have to
worry about passing the
exam after UNF because
she was already a regis-
tered nurse.
She quickly realized
while at UNF she had
received excellent clinical
training at LCCC.
From UNF, Ketti even-
tually worked her way to
Durham, North Carolina
and Duke University's
Children's Hospital where
she worked as a nurse on
the bone marrow trans-
plant floor.
She, also applied
and was accepted into
the Pediatric Nurse
Practitioner program at
Duke University. She has,
graduated from Duke and
now works in the same
bone marrow transplant
department as a pediatric
nurse practitioner.
Ketti often reflects back
on her start in nursing at
LCCC and how grateful

she is that she started
there. Having both an
Associate of Science in
Nursing and Bachelor of
Science in .Nursing expe-
rience gave her a real
appreciation for the value
of associate's in nursing
programs. When anyone
makes a negative com-
ment about the associate's
degree in nursing pro-
grams, Ketti is quick to
set them straight. She
works in a difficult emo-
tional environment with
children who are afflicted
by rare diseases or can-
cer, some terminal. She is
a highly regarded pediat-
ric nurse practitioner, and
she never has forgotten
where she got her start.
This leads me to my
fourth child, Megan,
who graduated valedic-
torian from Columbia
High School; however,
her first college of choice
was LCCC. She received
a strong science back-
ground at LCCC'and
maintained a 4.0 grade
point average through her
Associate of Arts degree.
She also transferred to
UNF where she majored,
in biology and kept her
4.0 GPA.
Upon completing her
Bachelors of Science in
Biology, Megan decided
on physical therapy and
applied to the Doctorate
in Physical Therapy pro-
gram at University of
Florida. She was accepted
and is completing her
final year after very suc-
cessful clinical rotations
in Naples and Melbourne
and Falls Church,
Virginia.
So, I am bragging about
our children who were
conscientious and took
advantage of.the educa-
tional opportunities they
had-but I am also brag-
ging about LCCC, which
provided them that
opportunity' "
Getting a good
educational foundation
is important, and your
hometown college is
integral to that process.
