citizens will
soon have
more options
to choose from
when deciding where to go
to receive driver's license
services.
Beginning in June, driv-
er's license services for the
public will be implemented
under Ronnie Brannon,
Columbia County tax col-
lector, and will be offered
at three different tax col-


lector branch offices.
Brannon said all services
that are currently offered
by the Florida Highway,
Patrol station on U.S.
Highway 90 will still be
offered at that location, but
it will serve as a new tax
collector branch office.
Limited services also
will be offered at the tax
collector's main branch
in the Courthouse Annex
building and at the Fort
White branch, he said.
"A simple renewal, a sim-
ple issuance, replacements,
things like that, i want


to offer those services
here as well as out there,"
Brannon said. .
He said eventually he
hopes to extend other
services he already offers
such as vehicle tags and
titles or basic property tax
bill payments to the new
tax collector branch.
"We're going to try to be
90 percent in all places,"
he said. "There will be a
few things we can't do. (at
certain locations), but by-
and-large we'll serve every-
body in one stop. It'll be
one-stop shopping."


A $6.25 service fee
authorized by Florida
Statutes will be added to
the cost of driver's license
services each time a ser-
vice is rendered, Brannon
said, and the money gener-
ated by the service fees
will be put back into the
work necessary to provide
the services.
"These service fees
would offset a portion of
the costs to provide this
service to the citizens of
Columbia County," he said.

County eyes new
source of federal
funding.

By LEANNE TYO
Ityo@lakecityreporter. corn
The opportunity for
federal funding for a pos-
sible proposed prison in
Columbia County has aris-,
en again, a county offi-
cial said Thursday.
Commissioner Ron
Williams said funding at the
federal level is available for
a private, correctional facili-
ty that would house approx-
imately 1,750 criminal, ille-
gal aliens on "short-term
stays." Williams' announce-
ment comes on the heels of
a possible proposed prison
bid for Columbia County
that failed after federal bud-
get cuts were announced
March 1.
Williams said he became
aware of the new funding
Thursday morning, and
that the funds would be for
the prison's operation.
The company that would
possibly propose the pris-
on Municipal Capital
Markets would provide
the money to build the pris-
on, Williams said.
Williams stressed that if
this prison is proposed, the
county would not pay for it.
"There is funding for this
type of institution at no cost
whatsoever to the county,"
he said. 'The county would

7 1 Rodeo success rides on volunteers


JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter
Okeechobee resident Klancey Breaux scores 27 points in the
tie-down roping competition at the 2009 Florida Gateway Pro
Rodeo.


Almost 3 dozen
help with gates,
promotions.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Although the glitz, glam-
our and applause of most
rodeos goes to the partici-
pants and animals in the
ring, the heartbeat of the
Florida Gateway Pro Rodeo
is its volunteers, officials
say.
This weekend the work


and efforts of local volun-
teers will pump life and
character into the 16th
annual Florida Gateway Pro
Rode, which takes place
at the Columbia County
Fairgrounds.
Steve Briscoe, co-chair-
man of this year's rodeo,
said more than 30 volun-
teers have done a vari-
ety of tasks toward mak-
ing this year's event a
success.
"Prior to and during the
rodeo, they help us in the
preparation of the grounds,


help with the administra-
tion end and help us with
organization of the rodeo
itself," he said. "Most of
everything you see with the
rodeo is pretty much put on
by the volunteers."
Some volunteers main-
tain gates, others are ush-
ers during the event, and
other volunteers help feed
the participants by cook-
ing and serving the food.
They also help promote the
event.
"Some of us volunteers
probably have a couple hun-


dred hours invested into
the rodeo," Briscoe said.
'"There is a lot of work lead-
ing up to and during the
rodeo. Sunday afternoon is
the only performance that
we really get to sit down
and watch Friday and
Saturday we're so busy
behind the scenes we don't
really get to enjoy the show
itself."
Due to the amount of
time volunteers donate
toward making the event a

Brannon also noted that
identification requirements
under the REAL ID Act
implemented at the begin-
ning of the year will still
apply to driver's license
services.
Brannon said he will be
assuming driver's license
services because'of pos-
sible upcoming legislation
to "pass" the services from
the state to the local level.
"I think eventually the


Legislature will pass legis-
lation, and the tax collec-
tors, I believe, as a group
will support that legislation
to actually pass it to the
local level through tax col-
lectors," he said.
More than 120 driver's
license offices in 45 of
Florida's counties have
already made this transi-
tion, Brannon said.
He also said he wants to
keep the services "local" if


such legislation is eventu-
ally passed.
"I would rather do it and
serve my constituents here
to give them the service
locally by someone they
know," he said, "rather than
having it bid out and some-
one you've never heard of
(before thove in here as a
private, for-profit business.
I think I can give good ser-
vice to the people."
Beginning June 28,


driver's license services
will be offered Monday
through Friday from 8
a.m. to 4:30 p.m..at the tax
collector's main office at
135 NE Hernando Ave. and
the new branch office at
1350 W. U.S. Highway 90.

have no liability.'"
Williams said this pos-
sible proposed prison will
be "treated the same" as all ,
other businesses looking to
relocate to the county.
"Yotu can't discriminate
on the business that wants
to locate into this county,"
he said. "You just make
sure it won't hurt our envi-
ronment."


A benefit of a prison com-
ing to Columbia County
would be the provision of
jobs, Williams said.
"It might be unpopular
with some, but it'll be a
blessing for others," he
said.
Williams said Municipal
Capital Markets is the
same firm that previously
proposed a federal prison


for the county, and is inter-
ested in the same location
- a site located on the east
side of town off East U.S.
Highway 90.
The company would have
to go through the detailed
steps of the process again,
such as an environmental
impact study and public
hearings, Williams said.
"They just can't transfer


what they've already done,"
he said. "They will have to
start all over again."
Williams said offi-
cials could not confirm
that Municipal Capital
Markets has yet submit-
ted the proposal" to the
U.S. Department of Justice
Federal Bureau of Prisons
to operate this correctional
facility in the county.

OUR
OPINION


Helping

with the

pain of

addiction

millions of
Americans
depend on
painkillers and
the relief they
offer for maladies ranging from
the mild to the severe. Injuries
from accidents and ailments
from illnesses as well as the
pain of backaches and arthritis
- can be managed through
the proper use of medicines
such as Vicodin, Darvocet or
Percocet.
But the relief such painkill-
ers can offer is not without
risk the same medicine that
can control pain can itself gain
control over an individual who
misuses or becomes addicted
to these habit-forming drugs.
We've seen the side effects
of such addiction in Columbia
County. Two brazen and sepa-
rate robberies at the same local
pharmacy netted no cash or
merchandise. In both gases, the
robber asked for and received
one specific item OxyContin,
a drug so addictive it goes
by the street name Hillbilly
Heroin.
Because the cycle of depen-
dency on prescription drugs
often begins slowly and with
legitimate need, addiction can
be difficult to catch, even by
family members and friends.
Some of the warning signs,
such as usage increase or ongo-
ing use, can be obvious; but
others, such as increased sen-
sory sensitivity or changes in
daily habits, are more subtle.
Because of that subtly, any-
one who has the need to take
a narcotic pain medicine is at
risk for dependency and in
need of friends and family, or a
competent caregiver, who will
provide support throughout the
use.

LETTERS TO

Libraries house
more than books
To the Editor:
I think it is a shame that
the man that has a library
card hasn't used it in 10 years
("Library Services no public
agenda," March 17). Apparently
this letter writer doesn't know
all the things that go on in the
library.
They have a literacy program
to teach people for free and
you can use the computers for
free. Not everyone can afford a
computer. They have children's
programs. They display local
artist's work. They have a great
quilt show. They have great
research materials, and if they
don't have it, they try to borrow
it from other libraries. It is a ref-
uge for a lot of people to sit and
read magazines and newspa-
pers. A lot of people can't afford
these things.
This man says he can get
everything he wants off the
computer. What about the
human factor? Can you take a
computer and sit on your child's
bed and read a bedtime story?
Can you read a computer in
bed? They also have video tapes
and DVDs that you can use free


THE EDITOR
for a week. They also promote
community events on the TV all
for free. They have music CDs.
They also have big-print books
on tape you can listen to.
Not all of us have money for
best-sellers all the time. I'm
sorry that this man thinks that
his tax money is being wasted.
What better way to get children
to read than taking them to the
library? They also give children
books on their birthday. It's just
sad that this man hasn't taken
advantage of the library.

Our proud history
found in libraries
To the Editor:
I've read with interest that
the state legislature is consider-
ing cut backs on public library
funds. The state of Florida is
ranked number 47 in education
and I am wondering if this is
another great idea?
We should be opening the
libraries more and finding ways
to bring children in so they can
read and find dreams to work
for. Then again, if we continue
to save money on things like


libraries and education we will
be able to hire educated people
to be guards at our new prison
to keep the non-educated out of
trouble.
As a child, I averaged a book
a week from the public'library.
I read history, biographies and
assigned material from school.
These books, along with school,
gave me the education I use
today.
Is it possible to go back to the
days when hard work, education
and the desire to do better than
the last generation really did
matter and make a difference?
When our forefathers came
to America, most did not even
speak English. However, they
educated themselves by going
to school and working hard and
building strong work ethics.
Those are the people who strug-
gled to build the best country
to live in for their families and
generations to follow.
I would like to let our legisla-
tors know they may read about
the people that settled across
America in history books locat-
ed in any public library as it
seems they've forgotten what.
made us great.

School board explores
."AC! l, remb1% 1y-fl T"'m vd 1t x" C'i


reserve u ge e


By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.comrn
The Columbia County
School Board looked toward
the future on Thursday at
its annual retreat, where it
discussed issues that could
have an impact on the
school system in the com-
ing years.
Each year the board
meets to discuss issues such
as budget, policy reviews
and its five-year work plan,
which includes construc-
tion projects at each of the
district's elementary, mid-
dle and high schools,
As it has each of the past
several years, the board
spenttime discussing bud-
getary issues that have
continued to plague Florida
school districts. ,
During recent school
years, the school board
has had to slash its annual
budget throughout the year
because of issues stemming
from state funding. While
the district has managed to
head off any layoffs in the
school system with advance
planning, it will continue
to have to tighten its belt,
school board members
said.
One of those advance
planning ideas could be
expanding- its reserve con-
tingency budget. According
to state policy, the district
must have approximately 3
percent of its annual budget
set aside for any emergen-


cy issues. This money can
b.e spent on any necessary
expenditures and is not ear-
marked. However, board


Millikin


member
Charles
Maxwell
said trying
to expand
that to 5
percent
would be a
wise move


and would allow the board
more flexibility if an emer-
gency situation arose.
"What if we have a $2 mil-
lion problem tomorrow?"
Maxwell said. "We lay off
staff, because that's the
only option we have. That's
the way we have continued
to manage our affairs.
. "We can't anticipate the
costs of disasters, but we
can plan for them," he said.
If other funding sources
suddenly disappeared, the
3 percent reserve would
allow the school district to
operate for eight days. If
the board chose to move
to the 5 percent reserve,
that money could only be
tapped by a super-majority
vote by the board, Maxwell
said.
However, as the funds
fluctuate throughout the
year it can be 3 percent
at 'the beginning of the
school year and 12 per-
cent by January, depend-
ing on when- state funding
arrives it may prove
difficult to keep track of


that reserve and keep it
at that 5 percent, school ,
officials said. They noted,
however, that setting a
plan to continue to bol-
ster the reserve is a good
idea.
Board members and offi-
cials also discussed class
sizes for 2010-2011, when
the full implementation of
the class size reduction law
goes into effect.
"-Every class at every Rea
school at every time must,
be under that hard limit of Lynne
18, 22 and 25 students (for student
grades Pre-K through 3, 4 Rodeo.
through 8, and 9 through
12, respectively), and
that's nearly impossible,"
school superintendent
Mike Millikin said. "Again,
the state actually freezes
money from your opera-
tional budget and puts it
.into your capital account,
and that's not necessar-
ilywhat we need in some
cases. .
"Even our new elemen-
tary school, which has
good class sizes, we have
to bring in portables if we
were going to comply with
the class size limit next
year," he said. "It's a budget
buster if you can do it; and
very expensive if you do it
the traditional way. .We're
trying to be in compliance
every year there were
one or two grade levels at
Pinemount this year that
weren't but we're doing
the best we can.


Library funds topic at board meeting


By LEANNE TYO
Ityo@lakecityreporter.com
Approximately one-
third of state library fund-
ing could be cut from the
library budget in the county
this upcoming 'fiscal year,-
county officials said.
Discussion surrounding
possible cuts in State Aid
to Libraries funding con-
tinued at the Columbia
County Board of County
Commissioners meeting
Thursday.
Dale Williams, county
manager, said equalization
and operating money with-
in State Aid to Libraries
may not be available to
libraries in the county, and
will affect the county's bud-
get for the 2010 to 2011
fiscal year.


"We're being told that
money will not be available
next fiscal year," he said.
'We're told to prepare, next
year's budget accordingly."
Williams said the coun-
ty was prepared for these
types of cuts last year and
did not expect to have that
funding this year.
With the possibility


of less funding, Williams
said the West Branch of
the county library could be
asked to close.
'We'd already looked into
that type of a funding loss
before, and we don't see
any way that we're going
to be able to sustain all
branches with that type of
a cut," he said.

GOP loses fight


with Democrats.


over health votes 1111


From staff reports
Republicans have lost
an effort to force House
Democrats to hold a direct
vote on the health overhaul
bill.
Democrats want to
use a special procedure
that would let the House
automatically approve the
$940 billion measure when
lawmakers vote to begin
debating a separate propos-
al that would revise that big
health bill.
Democratic leaders hope
this maneuver would ease
the political pain for law-
makers hesitant about vot-
ing directly on the giant
health legislation which
the Senate has approved.
Republicans tried to block
that move, but Democrats
in the House prevailed by a
222-203 vote on Thursday. '
U.S.Rep.AnderCrenshaw
(R-Florida) issued a state-
ment Thursday against the
health care bill following
the Congressional Budget
Office's preliminary cost


estimate..
"According to the CBO,
Democrats want to spend
$1 tril-
..-lion, raise
^- -^ roughly
one-half
#' ,. trillion

in new
taxes, cut
,Crenshaw Medicare
by more
th a n
one-half trillion dollars,
and increase Americans'
health insurance premi-
ums to reform health care,"
Crenshaw said.
"That's not what individu-
als, families, small business
owners and farmers across
the Fourth Congressional
District tell me they want.
Instead, they have urged
me to help them secure
more access to affordable
health care."
Crenshaw voted against
the health care reform bill
on Nov. 7, 2009. The House
is set to debate the new
health bill on Sunday.

Parts stolen from dealership,

FDLE arrests suspect


From staff reports

The Florida Department
of Law Enforcement's
Tallahassee Regional
Operations CenterThursday
arrested a former manager
of a Tallahassee car dealer-
ship for stealing auto parts
from his employer.
Anthony Robert "Tony"
D'Amico, 34, of Tallahassee
was charged with one count
of grand theft of more than
$20,000, a second degree
felony..
FDLE began investigat-'
ing in October 2009 when
the owner of Legacy Toyota
of Tallahassee report-


ed thousands of dollars
worth of parts had disap-
peared from its inventory
during the time D'Amico
was manager of the parts
department.
Theinvestigationrevealed
that D'Amico had been sell-
ing parts and merchandise
from the dealership's inven-
tory and keeping the money
for himself since as early as
January 2008.
If the desired parts
weren't in stock, D'Amico
would place orders through
distributors who then
invoiced the dealership.
D'Amico sold the parts
to acquaintances, put some


on his personal vehicles,
and sold some via an online
auction site to buyers as
far away as California and
Holland.
In his position as parts
manager, D'Amico was able
to' bypass normal purchas-
ing protocols in an effort
to cover up the scheme.
However, in July 2009 the
dealership became suspi-
cious of some questionable
purchases and billings and
initiated an audit which
identified the theft.
D'Amico was booked into
the Leon County Jail. He
has been terminated by the
dealership.

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.

STATE. OF FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT
The Department of' Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to issue a permit to
Southern Wood Piedmont Company to operate a 40,320 GPD maximum daily flow design capacity
contaminated groundwater recovery and treatment facility at the Cochran Forest Products site located
at Route 7 Okinawa Road, Lake City, Florida 32056. Southern Wood Piedmont operates a 28-gpm
design capacity contaminated groundwater recovery and treatment system to contain and capture
the three pentachlorophenol plumes and two hydrocarbon plumes associated with dormer plant
operations at the Cochran Forest Products site in accordance with the Department's Consent Order
(CO 89-0918) and associated Remedial Action Plan (RAP). The groundwater recovery and treatment
system consists of seven 4-gpm groundwater recovery wells collecting contaminated groundwater
in a 3,000-gallon equalization tank for treatment. Contaminated groundwater is pumped from the
equalization tank through two 5-micron bag filters and then pumped through two activated carbon
adsorption vessels (lead/lag 1,200-lb media vessels) prior to final discharge of treated groundwater to
any one of three on-site infiltration basins for evaporation or recovery, or to a drainage ditch north of
the property flowing to an unnamed creek into the Osceola National Forest (Class III Fresh Water).
This facility does not have any new or expanded discharge to surface waters. The facility is located
at latitude 30" 11' 36" N, longitude 82 34' 50" W on Route 7 Okinawa Road, Lake City, Florida
32055 in Columbia County.
The intent to issue and application file are available for public inspection during normal business
hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Department
Northeast District Office, 7825 Baymeadows Way, Suite B-200, Jacksonville, Florida 32256, at
phone (904) 807-3300.
The Department will issue the permit with the attached conditions unless a timely petition for an
administrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, within fourteen
days of receipt of notice. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's proposed permitting decision
may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the
Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.
Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request an extension of
the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (received by the
Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the end of the time period for filing a petition for an
administrative hearing.
Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3),
Florida Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen
days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes,
however, also allows that any person who has asked the Department for notice of agency action may
file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to. the applicant at the address indicated above
at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request for an extension of time
within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an
administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any
subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion
of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida
Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is based must contain
the following information, as indicated in Rule 28-106.201, Florida Administrative Code:
(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or identification number,
if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner; the name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes
during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner's substantial interests
will be affected by the determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the Department's decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so
indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner
contends warrant reversal or modification of the Department's proposed action;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or
modification of the Department's proposed action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the'petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes
the Department to take with respect to the Department's proposed action.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing
of a petition means that the Department's final action may be different from the position taken by it
in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the
Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the
requirements set forth above.
In addition to requesting an administrative hearing, any petitioner may elect to pursue mediation.
The election may be accomplished by filing with the Department a mediation agreement with all
parties to the proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the Department, and any person who has filed a timely
and sufficient-petition for a hearing). The agreement must contain all the information required by
Rule 28-106.404, Florida Administrative Code. The agreement must be received by the Clerk in the
Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35,
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, within ten days after the deadline for filing a petition, as set forth
above. Choosing mediation will not adversely affect the right to a hearing if mediation does not result
in a settlement.
As provided in Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, the timely agreement of all parties to mediate
will toll the time limitations imposed by Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, for holding
an administrative hearing and issuing a final order. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the
mediation must be concluded within sixty days of the execution oft.he agreement. If mediation results
in settlement of the administrative dispute,'the Department must enter a final order incorporating the
agreement of the parties. Persons seeking to protect their substantial interests that would be affected
by such a modified final decision must file their petitions within fourteen days of receipt of this
notice, or they shall be deemed to have waived their right to a proceeding under Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes. If mediation terminates without settlement of the dispute, the Department
shall notify all parties in writing that the administrative hearing processes under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes, remain available for disposition of the dispute, and the notice will
specify the deadlines that then will apply for challenging the agency'action and electing remedies
under those two statutes.

FDLE: 21 arrested

in food-stamp K IT-.


fraud cas

From staff reports

The Florida Department
of Law Enforcement today
announced the arrest of 21
store owners and clerks in
an intensive 10-week, state-
wide undercover operation
to combat public-assistance
fraud.
Operation Cash
Exchange targeted retail-
.ers illegally providing cash
frohf government issued
Electronic Benefit Transfer
cards which are authorized
only for the purchase of
approved food staples.
The operation began Jan.
7 and culminated with the
execution of search and
arrest warrants at 15 stores
in 10 cities on Wednesday.
"These stores were traf-
ficking in tax-payer dollars,"
said Commissioner Gerald
Bailey. 'Taking cash from
the food stamp ,program is
a felony, and we rounded up
retailers who were running
this scam as a part of their
daily routine."
During the operation,
undercover operatives vis-
ited convenience stores,
small grocery markets and
gas stations and used food-
stamp benefits, on under-
cover EBT cards to acquire
cash and other items ineli-
gible for purchase.
Store owners and clerks
rang through. a transaction
that indicated a food-staple
purchase, but then provid-
ed a portion of the trans-
action amount back to the
undercover operative in the
form of cash and retained a
portion for themselves. In
most cases, few or no food
items were purchased.
In addition to the cash
transactions, stores also
allowed the card to be used
to purchase prohibited
item, such as alcohol and
cigarettes; subsequently
avoiding' paying faxes on
those items. In two stores,
the undercover operative
successfully purchased
scratch-off lottery tick-
ets. In one Central Florida
store, an undercover opera-.
tive used the card to pur-
chase a small quantity of
the prescription pain killer
oxycodone.
According to the United
States Department of
Agriculture, which adminis-
ters the federal food-stamp
program, the 15 stores tar-
geted during the operation
have committed an esti-
mated $3.5 million in food-
stamp fraud during the last
12 months and more than
$10,000 in cash exchanges
occurred during the opera-
tion.
"At a time when more
Floridians than .ever need
our help, those who steal
from this critical program
are stealing from the 2.5


K4iIl w NOi i


million people in this state
who are in legitimate
need of food stamps," said
Department of Children
and Families Secretary
George Sheldon. "I applaud
FDLE's aggressive efforts
to punish this especially
heinous form of fraud. Such
arrests will ensure that hon-
est Floridians who need a
helping hand receive that
assistance."
The following individuals
arrested during the opera-
tion include:
Meaza Tilahur, 38, of
Jacksonville, who works at
Ethio Shell in Jacksonville
-was charged with bank
fraud, scheme to defraud
and public assistance fraud.
She was booked into the
Duval County Jail;
Zewedeneh Kassa, 41,
of Jacksonville, who works at
Ethip Shell in Jacksonville.
He was charged with bank
fraud, scheme to defraud
and public assistance fraud.
He was booked into the
Duval County Jail;
Assefa Abegaze, 58, of
Orange Park, who works
at M&Y Food Store in
Jacksonville, was charged"
with bank fraud, scheme'
to, defraud and public assis-
tance fraud. He was booked
into the Duval County Jail;
Yeshe Tefera, 47, of
Orange Park, who works
,at M&Y Food Store in
Jacksonville, was charged
with bank fraud, scheme
to defraud and public assis-
tance fraud. She was booked
into the Duval County Jail.

Masters

of malice
or the
maximum
in personal
protection of
Tiger Woods,
the Masters is the best ,
place to return to golf.
Augusta National pulls
the strings and manages.
the press and fans like no
other.
Badges are issued to
patrons, so anybody who
steps out of line can be
identified and
disciplined, especially
if they sell their sacred
right to attend the
tournament.
The press will have
to mind its P's & Q's
and there will likely be
restrictions on what can
be asked Woods and
tournament officials.
Wackenhut security
officers used to routinely
check for badges and
regularly poke fans who
lay ,down to rest and
force them to sit or
move along.
The Masters will enjoy
this return. Augusta ...
National revels in its
ability to control its
world, and why not?
There is no point in
having power unless you
get to unleash it.
The more sinister
situation of Tiger's return
is this whole sordid
episode..
You can identify all
sorts of addictions, but
the bottom line is his
actions constituted abuse
against his wife and
women in general.
Some blame his wife,
Elin, for the trauma '
and loss of millions in
endorsements. If she had
kept quiet, nothing would
have happened.
Woods seems sincere
in his desire to make
up, but his return at the
Masters is suspect.
Augusta National
wrote the book on
demonizing women when
it bludgeoned Martha
Burk back in 2003. -
Burk was the National
Council of Women's
Organizations chair
that dared to question
the all-male policy of
the club. The argument
was, although Augusta
National was a private
club, it was a seat of
power with its corporate
membership and the
refusal to allow women
was discrimination.
Following a note of
inquiry from Burk,
Augusta National went
into full attack mode with
a press release.
"We do not intend to
become a trophy in their
display case," was a part.
The city shunted Burk
and fellow protesters and
speakers to a vacant lot
down the road and across
the street from Augusta
National. The club flexed
its muscles by televising
the Masters for two years
without sponsors, the
better to protect its
corporate friends.
Woods and the
Masters, indeed, are
made for each other.

hits.
Taylor Douglass pitched
the full five innings for Fort
White and struck out six
batters.
"We only allowed three
base runners in five
innings," Wilson said.
'Taylor had six strikeouts,
and we had some good play
defensively."
Douglass (three runs,
two RBIs and a triple) and
Caitlin Jones (two runs and
an RBI) each had two hits.
Nine other Lady Indians
had hits including: Holly
Polhill (two RBIs), Alison
Wrench (one run and an
RBI), Kayla Williams (two
runs), Alex Nieland, Megan

FORT WHITE The
Indians unleashed one of
their baseball weapons in a
new way.
Levi Hatcher made
his first varsity start as a
pitcher,, and fired a three-
hit shutout against visit-
ing Hamilton County High
(4-5) on Thursday as Fort
White High won 6-0.
Hatcher, who. normally
catches for the Indians,
struck out 11 and did not
walk a batter.
"I was nervous going
into it," Hatcher said. "I was
shaking in the first inning.
I haven't stopped playing
baseball since last school
season, and my arm is a lot
stronger. I went out there
with a job in mind, and I
was glad I got it done."
Hatcher got the only
run he needed when Kevin
Dupree hit a solo home
run in the first inning.
Fort White added
another run in the inning.
Hatcher was hit by a pitch,
and courtesy runner, Kyle
Butler, scored after single
by George Demko and
Bryce Beach.
Fort White left the bases
loaded in the third inning,
but scored four runs in the
fourth.
Robby Howell led off


with a single and Justin
Kortessis singled one out
later. Dupree walked and
Hatcher followed with a
sacrifice fly to center field.
Demko had an RBI-double,
and Alex Gilmer's second
hit of the night was good
for two runs.
For, Hamilton County,
Joel Camora had a double
and a single, and Anthony
Ingram had a triple.
Eric Camora suffered
the loss with four innings
of work. Ingram pitched
the last two innings.
"I've got a new toy now,
and it came at a great time,"
Fort White head coach
Chad Bonds said. "We have
been struggling to make
plays with our defense, and
I thought with a pitcher
who challenges the hitters,
we wouldn't be back on
our toes. We played error-
free, solid defense tonight.
It was good to get some
runs early, but pitching
and defense was the story
tonight."
Fort White (4-4) host
Madison County High at
7 p.m. today.

Fort White track
Although there was no
official winner due to the
score keeper leaving the
meet early, Fort White
High hosted Baker County


and Newberry.
The Indians had 10
competitors place first in
multiple events includ-
ing: A.J. Legree (long
jump, triple jump, high
jump, 100-meter hurdles
and 300-meter hurdles);
Syndi Jones (800, 1600
and 3200-meters); Sitia
