Young professionals gather at chamber event


By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.com
More than
100 people
gathered
Wednesday
evening for
the Lake City-Columbia
County Chamber of
Commerce's first event
aimed at Lake City's young
professionals.
The Young Emerging
Professionals event, hosted
at Holiday Inn and Suites
of Lake City, is an effort by
the chamber of commerce
to attract a younger audi-
ence to take a more active
stance in chamber func-
tions and events.
"One of the things we've
noticed is that we are
lacking membership in
the under 40. range," said
Dennille Folsom, executive
director of the Lake City-
Columbia County Chamber
of Commerce. "One of the


reasons for this event is to
try to get this group more
involved in the community,
and more active in the
chamber."
Folsom said the goal.
is to make Lake City a
more desirable location' for
young and emerging pro-
fessionals, to keep the best
and brightest, encourage
them to return to Lake City


after college, and attract
other young professionals
from around Florida to
Lake City. She also men-
tioned that the chamber is
now accepting individual
memberships in an effort
to attract new members,
whether young or retired
who want to have a more
active involvement in the
community.

Young Emerging Professionals Social.


Folsom said she was
pleased with Wednesday
night's turnout, and Young
Emerging Professionals
events could begin to take
place every other month.
A meeting to form a young
professionals committee is
scheduled to take place at
5:15 p.m. on March 29 at
Beef'O' Brady's.
The Wednesday event
attracted a diverse collec-
tion of young professionals,
from business owners to
employees. Folsom said
approximately 75 people
announced intentions to
attend in advance, and
estimated there were more
than 100 at the event.
Matt Rocco, 26, owner
of Sierra Title in Lake City,
said the event provides a
unique opportunity to meet
people who will be molding
Lake City 20 to 30 years
from now.

Rodeo participants perform on shared stage __


Bulls, horses,
other animals
stars of show.
By ANTONIA ROBINSON
arobinson@lakecityreporter.comrn
Rodeo participants aren't
the only athletes getting
prepared for the 16th annual
Florida Gateway Pro Rodeo
this weekend.
"(The animals) are pro-


fessional athletes as well",
said Bob Smith, rodeo com-
mittee member.
.The rodeo is hosted by
Columbia CountyResources
Inc.
Animals are not just
picked out from a livestock
sale a few days before the
rodeo, but are brought by
a stock contractor and have
been prepared over time for
the event.
"It's an amazing con-


cept of how they come by
the livestock," Smith said.
"They're born and bred for
this life."
Charlie Lowry, of 4L
Rodeo in Summerville, Ga.,
has been the rodeo's stock
contractor for the past five
years. He arrives in town
today with 20 bulls, 15 hors-
es, 20 calves and 30 steers.
Preparing the animal ath-
letes requires daily mainte-
nance, just like their human


counterparts.
"The main thing is to take
good care of them," he said.
"You have to keep them in
good physical condition."
Bucking stock are trained
in getting use to going in
and out of the shoots and
having a rider sit on them,
Lowry said. Not all skills
are trained.
"You can't train them to

"It's exciting," he said.
"We work with the pillars
of the community on a
daily basis, and it's nice to
get out and network with
the future."


His thoughts were echoed
by Shane Ward, 25, gen-
eral manager of McAlister's
Deli in Lake City, who said
events like this are needed.
"Normally, there is a


sentiment to go after the
more established people,
but the young people here
are going to become those
same established people
years from now," he said.

Live Oak.
The grant funding will
bring increased broad-
band capabilities to 22 local
governments 14 North
Florida counties and eight
North Florida cities. The
North Florida Broadband
Authority is made up of rep-
resentatives from each of
the entities.
The enhanced accessibil-
ity to broadband and high-
speed connectivity is for the
14-county region that is des-
ignated as a Rural Area of
Critical Economic Concern
in North Florida.
As part of .the meeting,
the project manager and
system's engineer were
authorized to begin work-
ing Wednesday to begin
putting the initial master
schedules together for the
budget and to complete the
system's initial design.
"That's the first thing
that we have to do so we
can. start drawing the
money down, start letting
bids for the equipment
and facilities themselves


so we can start construc-
tion which should be no
later than the middle
or late summer," said
General manager of the
North Florida Broadband
Authority Robert Sheets.
The construction for the
Broadband Authority will
consist of putting up towers
and building antennae.
As part of the grant
application, the Broadband
Authority was able to
secure more than $9 mil-
lion of in-kind services from
local governments. In the
near future, representatives
will be going to local gov-
ernments to make good on
those promises. ,
'We'll be using the assets
of the cities and counties
that already exists," Sheets
said. "We've got $9 mil-
lion of commitments from
local governments to let
us attach our equipment to
their facilities, thus helping
us meet the federal match
requirements of 20 percent
on a $30 million grant."
The North Florida


Broadband Authority is a
governmental entity and has
to have a formerly approved
budget before spending of
the grant funds can begin.
The money will not be given
to the Broadband Authority
as a lump sum, but through
monthly disbursements.
'"We get the monies as.we
draw them down," Sheets
said. "We do 30-day draws
in advance. The feds are not
going to give us $31 million
and say we have 18 months
to spend it. The money will
sit in our accounts for a
very short period of time,
just for those draw downs
that we need in those 30
days."
Aire Wire president Walt
Henley also gave a presenta-
tion detailing the proposed
timeline for the Broadband
Authority's construction
and budget schedules. Aire
Wire is the company the
Broadband Authority mem-
bers ranked first through
the Request For Proposal
process when seeking a
project manager.

buck," he said. "They have
to naturally do that." '
.Often rodeo participants
will get hurt, but a doctor
and paramedics are always
on standby.
"It's not a matter of if
they'll get hurt, but when,"
Smith said.
However, the animals
usually don't get hurt,
Lowry said. Just in case a
veterinarian is on site dur-
ing the entire rodeo.
"Like a football player,
you never know when
something is going to hap-
pen," he said.
Health and safety for the
animals is always a big con-
cern.
"If one is not 100 percent,
they don't get to go out that


day," Smith said.
The stock goes from one
rodeo to another and statis-
tics are kept on each one's
performance, Lowry said.
As a former rodeo con-
testant, Lowry enjoyed the
camaraderie with contes-
tants, and now likes seeing
his stock do well, he said.
The excitement of activi-
ties, such as bull riding,
keeps things interesting at
the rodeo.
"It's like NASCAR," he
said. "You don't want to see
anybody get hurt, but you
want to see the spills and
thrills and the cowboys hav-
ing to run for safety. That's
a very emotional high."
The rodeo is at 8 p.m.
Friday and Saturday and 2


p.m. Sunday at the Columbia
County Fairgrounds. Tickets
are $5 for children 6-12, $10
for adults in advance and
$13 at the gate. Tickets are
available at Smitty's Western
Store, The Money Man,
Wilson's Ace Hardware and
S&S Food Stores.
"It's good, clean family
entertainment," Lowry said.
"You can bring your mama,
preacher or grandma, and
they won't be offended by
anything they hear or see."

Bat Conservancy earns certification


From staff reports

The Association of Zoos &
Aquariums on Wednesday
announced that the Lubee
Bat Conservancy was grant-
ed certification by AZA's
independent Accreditation
Commission.
Located on a 110-
acre property outside
Gainesville, Lubee Bat
Conservancy houses the
largest and most diverse
collection of tropical Old
World fruit bats in the
world, and is recognized
as a unique center .dedi-
cated to research, educa-
tion and conservation of
these threatened bats. The
center hosts researchers
and offers teaching and
informal science education
opportunities in partner-
ship with colleges, universi-
ties, zoological institutions,
museums and others.
"Lubee Bat Conservancy
is one of the best in the
world because it has met
the highest standards in the
world," said AZA president
and CEO Jim Maddy. "It
takes hard work and dedi-
cation to meet Association
of Zoos and Aquariums
Standards."
Each year, Lubee Bat.
Conservancy connects to
the local North Central
Florida community
through environmental
education programs deliv-
ered to local students,
and its "Florida Annual

Bat Festival." Hosted at
the center in the fall, this
event attracted 2,300 visi-
tors in 2009.
This year, Lubee Bat
Conservancy opens the


doors of its newly certified
center to the public for "Bat
Fest" on Nov. 13. Outside
of the festival, the conser-
vancy is open for tours .by
appointment only.


To be certified, Lubee
Bat Conservancy under-
went an investigation to
ensure it meets standards
which include animal care,
veterinary programs, con-
servation, education and
safety.
AZA requires zoos and
aquariums to success-
fully complete this rigor-
ous review and inspection
every five years in order
to be members of the
Association.
The certification process
includes a detailed applica-
tion and an on-site inspec-
tion by a team of trained
zoo and aquarium profes-
sionals. The inspecting
team observes all aspects
of the institution's opera-
tion in areas such as ani-
mal care, keeper training,
safety for visitors, staff
and animals, conservation
efforts, veterinary prq-
grams, financial. stability
and risk management. The
inspection team prepares
an extensive written report
for the accreditation com-
mission. Finally, top offi-
cials are interviewed at a
formal commission hear-
ing, after which certifica-
tion is granted, tabled or
denied. Any institution that
is denied may reapply one
year after the commission's
decision is made.

Tax reduction, exemption
renewal possibility for
November 2010 ballot


By LEANNE TYO
Ityo@lakecityreporter.com

Voters in Columbia
County could see a renewal
for tax abatement on their
voting ballots in November.
The Columbia
County Board of County
Commissioners will dis-
cuss placing the renewal
on ballots, among other
agenda items, at its meet-
ing Thursday. :
Lisa Roberts, assistant
county manager, said the
Columbia County Industrial
Development Authority
sent a resolution to the
county requesting that the
commissioners place tax
abatement renewal on the
November 2010 ballot for
citizens to readopt.
Tax abatement is a reduc-
tion- or exemption from
taxes for a specific period
of time.
Roberts said tax abate-
ment is used to attract new
businesses to the county.
"Basically, tax abatement
is utilized for the incentive
of attracting new industry
and businesses into the
community,"' she said. "In
order to get a new com-
pany, like New Millennium
or Target, or large compa-
.nies, this is one way that the
county utilizes an incentive
to be able to draw that com-
pany into the community to


build here."
The county also will hold
public hearings, to repeal
four land use ordinances
and implement two amend-
ments requested by Plum
Creek Land Company,
Roberts said.
The amendments "are
land use and text amend-
ment ordinances to the
comprehensive land-use
plan for the county," she
said.
Roberts said the four ordi-
nances are being repealed
because the Department
of Community Affairs
"would not accept them as
an exemption under the
county's economic objec-
tive," and only two regular
amendments to the coun-
ty's comprehensive plan are
allowed per year.
When the DCA did not
accept the ordinances, the
applicant Plum Creek -
decided not to appeal them,
but to request the adoption
of the amendments instead
for 2010, Roberts said.
Other agenda items:
The board will discuss
approval of Columbia County
tax collector Ronnie Brannon
providing driver's license
services to the county.
James Montgomery of
Lake City will address the
board about a resolution
opposing amendment four
to the Florida Constitution.

promotes healthy blood sugar lev-
els by effectively metabolizing
glucose into energy. In a research
study. all patients taking just one
capful of the liquid (one ounce)
daily, dramatically lowered their
blood sugar levels compared to a
placebo group. Another scientific
study found that an ingredient in
Cinnatrol made insulin 20 times
more capable of converting blood
sugar to energy.
While individual results vary,
one patient in the first study low-
ered his blood sugar from 220-245
to the 100-130 range in only 28
days, despite being instructed not
to change his dietary habits or
physical activity. Some patients,
under their doctors care, have been
able to reduce or eliminate their
need for diabetic drugs. Scientists
say that Cinnatrol helps diabetic
drugs to work more efficiently.
Cinnatrol is available without a
prescription at pharmacies or call

According to reports
from the Columbia County
Sheriff's Office released
Wednesday, an inmate at the
jail notified staff that Norman
was bleeding from his arm.
Detention and medical staff
entered the cell to discover
Norman with a wound to
his arm, which investigation
revealed was caused by a
disposable razor.
"Each inmate is issued a
razor, and they turn it back
in when they're done," said
Sgt. Ed Seifert, public infor-


mation
officer for
OCCSO.0
F rom
what we
can tell,
het took
Norman it apart
so you
couldn't tell it was tampered
with, and tossed the rest of it
back into the box."
Medical treatment was
provided by the staff, but
Columbia County Fire/
Rescue was called to "the


scene and made the decision
to fly Norman to a Gainesville
hospital rather than have
him treated locally, Seifert
said. He also noted Norman
underwent surgery at the
hospital to repair an artery
in his arm, near the elbow.
Norman returned to the
Columba County Detention
Facility Wednesday.
Seifert said onWednesday
he wasn't sure if the injury
was intentionally self-inflict-
ed or if the incident was an
accident.

Dr. Peter H. Gott
M.D.

costly
DEAR DR. GOTT: I
am so happy you are on
the Internet. I was hoping
it would happen because
sometimes I miss your
column in the Naples news-
paper, and now you are
available to me all the time.
I wish I could find a doctor
like you here in Naples, but
they all seem to come here
to become millionaires.
My present doctor charg-
es $3,500 a year to see me
four or five times to ask
how I am feeling, which is
a little much. He has been I
my physician for the past
15 years, and now this! He
doesn't take Medicare. I
tried another physician
and thought I would give
a woman a go. Wrong! I
was completely ignored by .-.
her and was treated by her
LPN assistant What's a gal
to do?
DEAR READER: Sadly,
this -is the wave of the
future. Five years ago, an
article appeared in The
New York Times regarding
such services. A woman
received a letter from her
family physician request-.
ing a $1,500 annual fee to
remain a patient. It seemed
as if he was offering longer
appointments, there would
be no waiting, he would
provide his cell-phone
number for after-hours
calls, and he would accept
only 400 patients into the
practice. The purpose? 'To
maintain the highest qual-
ity of patient care." dI |
The woman was tired of
sitting in the waiting room .
for extended periods and
found the idea appealing.
At the time she signed
on, concierge practices
cost $1,500 or more. It
was recommended at the
time that potential patients
determine which hospitals
such physicians used, what
would happen once signing
the contract if he or she
were to go out of business,
and whether it might be
necessary to contact the
office of the state attorney
general should a dispute in .
the contract result. All this
was divulged with zero or
questionable coverage by
an insurance company.
I neither endorse nor
condemn the practice of
concierge doctoring. What
works for one physician .......
may not work for another.
I'm not sure it would be a
good fit for me. Part of the
challenge, fun and pleasure
is to diagnose a variety of
patients each day with their
diverse issues.
If you are into a contract,
you will likely have a year
to pass judgment Should
you choose to renew your
contract and find your
$300-per-visit out-of-pocket
expense worth it, then IJosenh
stick with the plan. If not,
I'm sure another physician Offering
out there will gladly take Please cal
you into .the fold. Most
physicians have backup 755-91
coverage when they're "484 SW
unavailable, so cell-phone
numbers shouldn't enter
into the equation.
Now, to the doctor ver- -I E

Anticipation High as Ohio Valley Gold and Silver Refinery


Opens for Business Tuesday in Lake City!


By CHRISTINA BUTLER
STAFF WRITER

Beea 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 flat 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


Above: Refinery representatives will be on hand starting Tuesday through Saturday to purchase all gold,
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 all gold 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
