Commission votes to privatize EMS


Jobs for county
EMS employees
not guaranteed.
By LEANNE TYO
ltyo@lakecityreporter.com
Emergency Medical
Services for all of Columbia
County'are now privatized,
saving the county about
$1.2 million annually, but
not guaranteeing all county
EMS employees their jobs.
The Columbia
County Board of County


Commissioners unani-
mously passed a zero-
subsidy, five-year contract
with Lifeguard Ambulance
Service of Florida with
amendments Thursday.
The board discussed those
amendments during its
regular meeting, which
i lasted approximately four
hours, and after hearing
t five public comments on
t the issue, three of which
were blatantly against pass-
ing the contract
In the contract's final
vote, Lifeguard was award-


ed exclusivity to 911 calls,
and non-exclusivity for non-
emergency calls. Century
Ambulance, which cur-
rently provides interfacility
transports within the coun-
ty, participates in those
non-emergency calls.
Marsha Morrell, Century
vice president, asked the
board to prevent Lifeguard
from performing non-
emergency transports as a
restriction to their COPCN
(Certificate of Public
Convenience and Necessity).
The board did not comply


with Morrell's request, as it
later unanimously approved
a resolution authorizing a
COPCN for Lifeguard to
provide both emergency and
non-emergency services in
the county.
The board also unani-
mously approved leasing
county EMS equipment
and facilities for $1 for one
year to Lifeguard, a lease
that will be re-negotiated at
the end of that one year.
Commissioner Ron
Williams expressed con-
cern that such a lease would


give an unfair, competitive
advantage to Lifeguard
over other companies like
Century when providing
non-exclusive services, but
Jason Kimbrell, Lifeguard
regional director of opera-
tions,. said it would not
"We have absolutely zero
intention of running that
fine man (Herb Sellers,
Century president) and his
family out of this county,"
Kimbrell said.
When asked by the
board, Kimbrell also said
Lifeguard hopes to hire as


many county EMS employ-
ees as possible, but cannot
promise bringing over 100
percent of them.
Commissioner Ron
Williams told the EMS
workers and union mem-
bers present that they were
not being discriminated
against. Adopting the con-
tract is not a reflection on
the care provided so far,
he said, but a way to cut
subsidy costs.
"It comes to the point
where you weigh the two,"
he said.

US predicts 3 to 6 major hurricanes


Up to 18 tropical
storms may develop
during season.
By JENNIFER KAY
Associated Press
MIAMI U.S. government
forecasters announced Thursday
they expect three to six major
hurricanes from an above average
Atlantic storm season.
No major hurricane has made a
U.S. landfall in five years, but the
forecasters warned U.S. coastal

ished that they can't expect a
sixth straight year without a major
landfall on either the Atlantic or
Gulf coasts.
Last year's hurricane season
was one of the busiest on record
with 19 named storms, includ-
ing 12 hurricanes. The 2011 sea-
son was not expected to be as
extreme, partly because ocean
temperatures were only two
degrees warmer than normal,
instead of four degrees warmer
as they were last year, said NOAA
administrator Jane Lubchenco.
Also, a Pacific Ocean weather
phenomenon known as "La Nina"

was expected to dissipate early in
the summer before the season's
peak, typically from August to
October, Lubchenco said.
La Nina is an unusual cooling of
the Pacific waters near the equa-
tor. When its in effect, wind shear
over the Caribbean Sea and tropi-
cal Atlantic decreases, meaning
that tropical storms have a chance
to develop and strengthen before
being ripped apart.
Forecasters say La Nina helped
make the 2010 season so active.

Schwarzenegger ignites frenzy


BAKERSFIELD, Calif
he middle-aged woman,
her husband and her
son became perfect
neighbors after they
arrived a year ago on
a quiet suburban cul-de-sac, resi-
dents recalled.
That peace was disrupted
Wednesday as the media descended
on the Bakersfield area after uncon-
firmed reports flashed across the
Internet that former Gov. Arnold
Schwarzenegger was the father of
the woman's 13-year-old son.
The reporters and photogra-
phers didn't see Mildred Patricia
Baena or her family, the three hav-
ing left just ahead of the horde.
Baena's name was first reported
Wednesday by Radar Online and
subsequently by other news outlets,
including The New York Times,
which cited two unnamed friends of
the family.
The AP has not independently
verified that she is the mother of
Schwarzenegger's child.'
As TV satellite trucks gridlocked
the block and spilled over to an
adjacent street, residents sat in their
homes, stunned. Some worried
about the effect the news would
have on the polite 13-year-old boy
who they said often walked a white
poodle named Sugar through the
neighborhood when he wasn't
swimming in his backyard pool or
playing basketball.
"We just want this child to be pro-
tected as much as possible. We've
all made mistakes and to totally
destroy a child's life over that would
not be fair," said Marilyn Steelman,
who lives next door.
Residents said the family was
friendly and, like other homeowners
on the block of fashionable houses .
with red-tiled roofs and two- and
three-car garages, they kept up their

hospitalized in a coma
LOS ANGELES Jeff
Conaway's man-
ager said the for-
mer star of 'Taxi"

a coma following
a drug overdose,
possibly from pain
i pills.
Manager Phil
Conaway Brock said the 60-
year:old actor was
found unconscious
on May 11. He is hospitalized in
critical condition.
Brock said Conaway is in a
coma in a California hospital and
his recovery is uncertain. The
name of the hospital was not dis-


closed.
As part of the reality show
"Celebrity Rehab" in 2008, Conaway
discussed his addiction to drugs
and alcohol.

'Titanic' to be
re-released in 3-D
NEW YORK "Titanic" is com-
ing back to theaters in 3-D.
Paramount Pictures and 20th

that James Cameron's Oscar-win-
ning film will be re-released April 6
next year.
It will coincide with the 100th
anniversary of the Titanic setting
sail on April 10.
Cameron said the film was
"painstakingly" converted to 3-D
and promises "an epic experi-
ence."

Firefighters found a body
inside a burning minivan

Jacksonville elects
first black mayor
JACKSONVILLE A
day after the polls closed,
and after all the votes were
finally counted, 48-year-
old Alvin Brown officially
became Jacksonville's next
mayor.
Brown, a Democrat,
becomes the city's first
African-American mayor.
His Republican oppo-
nent, Mike Hogan, con-
ceded shortly after 7 p.m.
Wednesday, following a
day-long vote count that
gave Brown an eight-
tenths-of-a-percent margin
of victory.
Officials said the gap is
wide enough to prevent an
automatic recount.
Tuesday night, Brown
held a 603-vote lead over
Hogan. Officials said sev-
eral hundred absentee
ballots filed by voters on
Election Day helped give
Brown the edge.
Brown takes office July
1. He replaces outgoing,
two-term Mayor John
Peyton.

HURRICANES: Officals offer predictions

non, which warms Pacific
waters near the equator and
increases wind shear over
the Atlantic, helps suppress
storm development
Nevertheless, atmo-
spheric and marine con-
ditions indicating a high-
activity era that began in
1995 continues and linger-
ing La Nina impacts such
as reduced wind shear
are conducive to a busy
storm season, said Gerry
Bell, lead seasonal hurri-
cane forecaster at NOAA's
Climate Prediction Center
in Washington.
"We don't think La Nina
will be a player for much
of the season, but that's
really secondary," Bell said.
"Conditions are already
starting to be in place and
we expect them to develop,
and that's why we expect an


active season to be likely."
No major hurricane has
made a U.S. landfall since
Category 3 Hurricane
Wilma struck Florida in
2005, though Hurricane
Ike caused extensive dam-
age in September 2008
when it roared ashore
in Galveston, Texas, as a
strong Category 2 storm
with top winds around 109
mph. After peaking as a
Category 4 storm, near the
Turks and Caicos Islands,
Ike caused $10 billion in
damage in Texas, Louisiana
and Arkansas, making it the
third-costliest storm after
Hurricanes Katrina in 2005
and Andrew in 1992, accord-
ing to the National Hurricane
Center.
Scientists said coastal resi-
dents can't expect their luck
to hold.


"The US was lucky last
year. Despite an above
normal season we did not
have significant damage
from these storms on U.S.

"We all went to school
and happened not to
miss any days," Mathis
said, "and then my par-
ents realized, 'Hey, you've
gone two years for perfect
attendance, let's go one
more year.' It just hap-
pened to keep going and
going and that's why they
kept pushing us."
Mathis credited her par-
ents with playing a large.
role in encouraging her
and her siblings to attend
school daily.
"They definitely moti-
vated me to go to school,"
she said.
"All my friends know
that they can depend on
me to be there," Mathis
said, "because I feel bad if
I'm not there."
Keeping up with her
academics was the main
reason Mathis strived to
earn perfect attendance
and she had to balance
her perfect record with
swimming on the CHS

Shayne Morgan, Columbia
County Emergency
Management .Director.
"They got him out the sink-
hole successfully without
injuries to the horse or the
rider."
According to emergency
management reports, the
sinkhole opened up in the
right-of-way along County
Road 778.
"The rider was riding
along the side of the road
and the ground opened up,
from what I understand,"
Morgan said.
The sink is listed as being


close to six-feet deep, with a
four-foot opening and a diam-
eter of around eight-feet
The sinkhole was report-
ed to the Columbia County
road department and crews
are scheduled to fill the
hole. There were no road
closures associated with
the sinkhole.
"The rider was out of the
hole whenever I got there
and it didn't look like she
required any assistance in
getting out," Morgan'said.
For the horse, however,
that was a different story.

Morgan said.
He said a quick visual

reveal any other sinkholes
in the immediate area.
"From what I under-
stand, this just kind of fell

said he also had two active
warrants from Leon County
for failure to appear at court
appearances.
Whitffield is being held
at the Columbia County
Detention facility. Authorities
did not release any details
about his bond.
According to Lake
City Police Department
reports, around 11:21 a.m.
Wednesday officers were
dispatched to the CVS
Pharmacy, 2233 SW U.S.
Highway 90, in reference to
a theft.
Officer Tammy Williams
spoke with John Scott, CVS
regional manager of loss
prevention, who told her
that an employee found
empty medication bottles in
the store restroom.
Officials reviewed the
store's surveillance video
and reportedly saw store
employee Whitfield entering
the pharmacy and moments
later exiting the pharmacy.
Whitfield was then seen
entering the restroom
where the empty bottles
were found.
Williams spoke to
Whitfield and advised him
of the allegations and he
reportedly stated he did not
take anything.
Williams then asked
Whitfield for permission to
search him and he began
removing items from his


pockets.
During Williams' pat
down of Whitfield, two pre-
scription bottles fell from his
pants legs.
Whitfield was then
arrested. He was charged
with stealing four prescrip-
tion bottles of drugs: 211
Hydrocodone pills; 100
Alprazolam pills, 100 Opana


ER pills, 100 Lortab pills, as
well as one bottle of cough
syrup.
"All the drugs were recov-
ered with the exception
of the cough syrup," said
Capt. John Blanchard, Lake
City Police Department
public information officer.
'"The, drugs were valued at
$1,775."

OUR
OPINION


Obama

plans new

chapter
S peaking at the U.S.
State Department
Thursday, President
Barack Obama prom-
ised "a new chapter
in American diplomacy" in the
Mideast and North Africa. He
was responding to the "Arab
Spring," the rolling series of
mass demonstrations that have
ousted longstanding regimes in
Tunisia and Egypt, are close to
it in Libya and Yemen and may
yet do so in Syria.
Obama praised the people
who took to the streets for doing
more to change the region in
six mQnths than terrorists have
in generations. These spontane-
ous uprisings happened without
reference to the United States
and it seemed clear that Obama
would like to get the U.S. out
in front of that parade, particu-
larly since demonstrators don't
so much reject as completely
ignore Islamic extremism.
Obama promised broad U.S.
engagement with the region
based on core American princi-
ples and universal human rights.
He seemed to signal a
harder line toward Syria, where
President Bashar Assad is
engaged in an ongoing brutal
crackdown against protests to
his regime. Assad, said Obama,
can lead a transition to democ-
racy "or get out of the way."
Absent from his Mideast
tour was any mention of Saudi
Arabia. However, Obama
seemed to reference the king-
dom when he said our short-
term interkestgi'ndlo6g-teriff
values might not always align.
The president promised next
week's G-8 summit in France
would come up with help for
Tunisia and Egypt to stabilize
and modernize their economies.
Obama devoted the end
of his speech to Israel and
Palestine, basically restating
his policy for a two-state solu-
tion with:a free and indepen-
dent Palestine roughly within
the 1967 borders.
The net takeaway from the
president's speech was how
truly limited the U.S. is in try-
ing to influence the unscripted
events in the Mideast and
North Africa. Basically, we
stand on the sidelines offering
good wishes.

Washington's latest scare


tactic 'Defaultophobia'


Failure to raise the
debt limit would force
the United States to
default," Treasury
Secretary Timothy
Geithner panted in a May 13
letter to Sen. Michael Bennet,
D-Colo. "A default would inflict
catastrophic, far reaching dam-
age on our Nation's economy,
significantly reducing growth,
and increasing unemployment."
Geithner's hyperventilation
ignores the experiences of mil-
lions of Americans who have
refused Visa's and MasterCard's
offers to boost their credit ceil-
ings. Ignoring one's bills can
trigger default; leaving one's bor-
rowing threshold intact does not
Keeping credit lines unchanged
is i first step toward spurning
further debt, Responsible card-
holders will eat at home more
often and shot responsibly. The
resulting savings then go straight
to debt reduction.
"Its not accurate at all to
equate a failure to raise the
debt limit with a default on our
Treasury obligations," Sen. Pat
Toomey, R-Pa. tells me. "That's
totally false. Tax revenues will
be nearly 10 times the amount of
money needed to avoid defaulting
on our debt"
Indeed, the Congressional
Budget Office forecasts $2.23
trillion in federal tax revenues for
fiscal year 2011 and net interest
expenses of $213 billion. Geithner
will have plenty to pay bondhold-
ers.
Under US Code Title 31,
Section 3123, "As the (Treasury)
Secretary considers expedi-
ent, the Secretary may pay in
advance interest on the public
debt by a period of not more than
one year." So, Geithner can pay
bondholders first and, thus, avoid
default unless he wants it

send an unambiguous message
that under no circumstances would
they permit a default on our debt,"
Toomey adds. "The Administration
should reassure markets rather
than scare markets."
President Barack Obama could
send this signal by endorsing
and ultimately signing Toomey's
Full Faith and Credit Act If the
debt cap remains untouched,
Toomey's proposal would pri-
oritize Treasury disbursements

bondholders. If the latter receive

America even further down the
debt hol6 with predictable
results.
"Nations that run up high debt-
to-GDP levels through deficit
spending now may be compro-
mising their ability to survive
the next recession," warns Dr.
Polina Vlasenko of the American
Institute for Economic Research.
She found that between 2007 and
2009, deeper debt and deeper
downturns went hand in hand.
For instance, in late 2007,
Canada's household, business,
and government debt totaled
233 percent of Gross Domestic
Product; its economy slipped a
comparatively mild 3.4 percent
during the Great Recession.
America's debt equaled 329
percent of GDP; the economy


slumped 4.1 percent The 16-
nation Eurozone (388 percent)
shrank 5.4 percent Japan (572
percent) shriveled 10 percent
Such sobering facts are lost
on Washington's spendaholic
Democrats.
Medicare is careening towards
bankruptcy in 2024 not in
2029, as its trustees predicted just
last year. Meanwhile, Standard
& Poors has placed Treasurys
on "negative watch," foreshad-
owing a downgrade from AAA
status. Nonetheless, Democrats
seem uninterested in reducing
spending or re-limiting govern-
ment Last month, they had to be
dragged, stomping and hollering,
to accept a $38.5 billion spending
cut to avoid government shut-
down. Now, CBO calculates, that
bipartisan deal increases spend-
ing by $3.2 billion this fiscal year.
Once again, Republicans were
bamboozled as Democrats keep
spend, spend, spending along.
Washington should leave its
credit line in place, stop borrow-
ing, and-spend only the revenue
it generates just as do some 310
million Americans who neither
borrow from Beijing nor print
their own cash. If Democrats
want more money to spend,
they should rejuvenate this list-
less economy through lower
tax rates, deregulation, and free
trade. Commercial vitality will
yield higher tax proceeds.
Failing to raise the debt ceiling
is not synonymous with default It
means finally denying Democrats
that "one last, little round of
drinks" they crave and, instead,
driving them to Trembling Hills
to dry out

TO THE EDITOR


Criticism of Kazbors is unfair


To the editor:
This letter will serve as a
rebuttal to the letter from Mr.
Neal Burkett regarding the
comments and complaints he
lodged about Kazbors Grille,
and the direct attack against
local owners, Scott and Amy
Baker, who own the franchise.
I have known them both for 15
years and their dream of owning
a restaurant in their hometown
was finally realized 3 years ago.
Since then, they have relied
on their community to help
them create a business they
could be proud of, helping local
families with jobs and sup-
porting the fundraising efforts
of local school groups, youth
sports, and the children of
many of their customers. And
all while giving back 50 percent
of the sales, not just 10 percent
like other franchise businesses
in the community might have
done. Until they started their
fundraising breakfasts and burg-
er nights, no other restaurant in


this community did this type of
fundraising, to my knowledge.
They are local people, Lake
Citians, who have grown up
here, lived here, raising a family
and have members of their fam-
ily working in this community
and giving so much of their time
to help others.
This is a locally-owned busi-
ness, family run, with a nice,
casual, family atmosphere. The
employees enjoy working there,
and were known by either Scott
or Amy before they worked
there.
I find it hard to believe that
Mr. Neal Burkett called Kazbors
Grille or came by to complain,
and didn't have a chance to
speak to the owners, since they
are there every day of the week,
working in some capacity hand
in hand with the servers who
were maligned in the Letter
to the Editor of the Lake City
Reporter.
A letter to the editor of
the local paper was not


necessary, because I tell you
this, everyone does not feel
the way you do. Since Kazbors
Grille does not charge for the
use of their private dining room,
the question is this: What does
the person complaining look for
in resolution to his complaint?
There are only two things a
restaurant can offer. A heartfelt
apology, which I am sure if they
did complain that evening, they
would have received from the
manager on duty, or free food?
Or did they realize that going
to the "corporate office" would
be going over the heads of the
local manager, and found it was
the local people who would
resolve this issue?
This has just served as free
publicity for the restaurant,
thanks to the outpouring of
support from the community
because of this mean-spirited
attack on a local business owner.
But that's just my opinion.

disaster in Minneapolis. President
Barack Obama acknowledged
crumbling infrastructure as a
threat to the country's future,
along with energy dependence
and the need for more innovation.

meltdown, got in the way.
For 30 years, the United States
has defied the need to repair and

entitlements everything but
making sure the roof wouldn't

The horrific $14 trillion nation-
al debt has spooked everyone.
Hand in hand, Congress and
the White House are traveling
the road of political expediency,
refusing to make the neces-
sary spending decisions today
that will keep the nation great

The new Urban Land Institute/
Ernst and Young infrastructure
report warns that the country
will reach a breaking point in
the next 5-10 years as calamities
mount and the public panics. By -
then, the cost will be exorbitant
Last year a bipartisan panel of 80
experts begged the nation to act,
setting aside $250 billion a year
for repairs and upgrades to the
infrastructure.
If we do not act this is what will
happen:
Americans will spend an ever-
greater portion of their incomes
on services such. as tap water.
There will be new tolls and
existing tolls will dramatically
increase. Gasoline prices will
soar, pushed by higher federal
gas taxes.
Some cash-strapped cities will
simply stop providing basic ser-
vices, letting private companies
take them over. Road mainte-
nance in rural areas will become
problematic. Bridges will collapse
and not be rebuilt
The badly needed new national
electric grid to save energy will -
not be developed. A state-of-the-
art satellite air traffic control sys-
tem will not be built.
In 30 years, there will be
almost 100 million more people
living in the United States, but
the infrastructure will not sup-
port 400 million Americans.

Letter carriers' drive results in

more than 14,000 pounds of food


Staff reports

The NationalAssociation
of Letter Carriers and
local rural letter carriers
held their annual national
"Stamp Out Hunger" Food
Drive on Saturday and
collected 14,241 pounds
of non-perishable food
from Lake City, Columbia
County and Fort White
postal customers.
For the seventh year,
United Way volunteer
Bob Fowler coordinated
the dissemination of food
to the local participating
agencies. Fowler brought
in Pastor Craig Henderson
of the Lake City Church
of the Nazarene and the
church youth group to
participate by working the
. Lake City Post Office load-
ing dock, weighing and
reloading the food brought
in by the postal carriers.
Post office employees
working with United Way


of Suwannee Valley to
coordinate the event were
Susan Jones, supervisor;
Jim Bowles, NALC mem-
ber, Lake City Post Office;
Steve Lee, Lake City post-
master; and Vicky Smith,
Fort White postmaster.
Although Bob Fowler
will retire from his volun-
teer role of coordinating
the food drive, he selected
the Pastor Henderson to
fulfill the United Way of
Suwannee Valley volunteer
position to coordinate this
drive in the future.
Continual rain storms
Saturday dampened
the efforts of the drive.
Customers did. not leave
food outside because of
the rain. Post Office offi-
cials are hoping donations
will be left by customers
who did not leave them
last Saturday due to the
weather.
Food banks and food
pantries have reported a


huge increase in requests
for food the last two years,
with cost of food and fuel
increasing.
"On behalf of the agen-
cies, and, ultimately, the
families in need of the
food, thank you to each
and every postal patron
for the food donations and
to each and every letter
carrier for proudly doing
the extra work required,"
said United Way Executive
Director Rita Dopp.
Agencies participating
this year in Lake City were
Another Way, Christian
Service Center, Catholic
Charities Bureau, Food
Bank of Suwannee Valley
and Lad's Soup Kitchen.
In Fort White the food was
distributed to the United
Methodist Church. These
agencies make the food
available to residents in
need. Each of these agen-
cies welcomes donations
of food year round.

Containment level for Honey Prairie

wildfire goes above 50 percent


From staff reports

SThe Honey Prairie wild-
fire which has been burning
for more than two weeks
is more than halfway con-
tained, Georgia Forestry
Commission Incident
ManagementTeam officials
said Thursday morning.
According to their latest
report, the fire is listed as
being 55 percent contained.
Officials have credited pre-
scribed burns as one of the


principle reasons for the
fire's high rate of contain-
ment.
"A tactical firing opera-
tion was successfully com-
pleted along the Northwest
edge of the fire, providing
increased protection to the
Stephen C. Foster State
Park, adjacent uplands and
high-valued commercial
timberlands," the reports
said.
The fire has consumed
146,924 acres since it was


ignited by a lighting strike
on April 28.
Officials are utiliz-
ing eight helicopters, 29
engines, 42 bulldozers/
plows, four water tenders,
142 fire support staff, one
hand crew, one camp crew
and a total of 330 person-
nel in battling the blaze.
Additional resources from
the private sector, as well
as state agencies, have con-
tributed to the firefighting
effort


Magnet installed on space station


By MARCIA DUNN
AP Aerospace Writer

CAPE CANAVERAL
- Endeavour's astronauts
accomplished the No. 1
objective of their mission
Thursday, installing a $2
billion cosmic ray detector
on the International Space
Station to scan the invisible
universe for years to come.
But hours after astro-
nauts finished that work,
NASA said it might add
one more job: a detailed,
inspection this weekend
of a troublesome damaged
thermal tile on the space
shuttle's belly.
The space fliers used
a pair of robot arms to
remove theAlphaMagnetic
Spectrometer from the
shuttle, then hoist it onto
the sprawling framework
on the right side of the sta-
tion. It marked the grand
finale for America's, role
in the construction of the
orbiting outpost, which
began 13 years ago.
The instrument -
which has a 3-foot mag-
net ring at its core is
the most expensive piece
of equipment at the space
station and certainly the


most prominent scientific
device. It will search for
antimatter and dark matter
for the rest of the life of the
station, and hopefully help
explain how the cosmos
originated.
Nobel Laureate Samuel
Ting, the principal inves-
tigator, personally relayed
his thanks from Mission
Control in Houston. He's
worked 'on the project for
17 years and fought to get
it on a shuttle, when its
flight was suspended sev-
eral years ago.
"This has been a very
difficult experiment, and I
think in the next 20 to 30
years, nobody will be able
to do such a thing again,"
Ting told the astronauts.
"I hope together with you,
we will try to make a con-
tribution to a better under-
standing of our universe."
Shuttle commander
Mark Kelly whose wife,
Rep. Gabrielle Giffords,
had surgery to repair her
skull Wednesday said
he held his breath as the
spectrometer was latched
down.
"It's a $2 billion cosmic
particle detector, it's got
600 physicists that have


been working on it ... and it
was all in the hands of four
of my crew members,"
Kelly said in an inter-
view with The Associated
Press. He said he told his
crew afterward, "Isn't it a
relief that it's no longer
our responsibility, that we
safely got it installed?"

Giant

among

coaches

he legendary
determination
will come later
for those who
decide such
things.
One thing is certain
- Fort White will be
hosting a coaching giant
in today's spring game
against Orange Park.
Danny Green is
entering his fourth
season as head coach.
It will be the 30th
year for Green as a head
coach, and the 42nd year
overall in coaching for
the 1966 Columbia High
graduate.
The coaching gold
standard is 200 wins, and
Green is well north of
that number.
Green coached the
Tigers for 12 seasons,'
before Columbia decided
on a new direction in
2008. Orange Park
snapped him up and he
has led the Raiders to
three consecutive district
championships.
"It is the first time in
Clay County history a
team has won district
three straight," Green
said.
In two of those years,
the Raiders made the
third round of the
playoffs, including last
year when they started
1-3. Orange Park lost in
the first round to DeLand
in 2009, the year the
Bulldogs went to the
state final.
The 2008 playoff trip
for Orange Park was
its first since'1999. The
Raiders were 1-9 in 2007.
It is not the first
reclamation project for
Green. He left the
comfort of Baker County
and went to Haines City.
In 1991, the Hornets
advanced to the state
final in their first playoff
appearance since 1976.
Green played and
coached for Paul Quinn
and cut his head
coaching teeth at Baker
County. He took the
Wildcats to the playoffs
in 1989, when only
district champs qualified.
While he was at
Columbia, the Tigers
went to the playoffs 11
times. Seven of those
seasons CHS made the
third round, including
the championship game
in 1997 and a semifinal
spot in 2003. In the 1997
season, the Tigers set a
school record by winning
their first 14 games.
Green's son Corey
is his offensive
coordinator at Orange
Park and defensive
coordinator Craig Mosse
also has been there the
three years.
"The kids understand
we have set the bar
high," Green said. "It is
the expectations of our
coaches to work hard.
We don't make many
changes in our system.
It has worked for us
over here."

Tigers,


Indians


ready for spring fling


Columbia set to
host Dunnellon
High today.
By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.com
While Columbia High
begins a new era under
coach Brain Allen, the
Tigers will welcome in an
old coach tonight as Frank
Beasley leads in Dunnellon
High.
The Tigers host
Dunnellon at 7:30 p.m.
tonight at Tiger Stadium
in the final tune up of the
spring.
For Beasley, it's a chance
to measure up against his
old team.
"It's exciting for us," he
said. 'We like to schedule
bigger teams off of the
beaten path to see if we can
compete with a team the
caliber of CHS."
Beasley still has ties in
the area.
"My wife is actually
from Lake City, and I'm
good friends with Dennis
Dotson," Beasley said.
"Mitch Shoup is back on
the staff, and I've had great
conversations with coach
Allen."
Although Beasley talks
about stacking up against
bigger competition,
Dunnellon is no slouch.
Beasley coached his
team to consecutive dis-
trict championships in 3A
before the reallignment by
FHSAA.
"We've been 9-2 the past
two season but both times
we lost in the first round
of the playoffs," he said.
"That's a tough pill to swal-
low as a two time district
champion."
Dunnellon, also known as
the Tigers, brings back a
traditional style of football
seen in Columbia for years.
"We run the Wing-T
with the traditional three

Fort White High
welcomes in
Orange Park.
By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter. com
FORT WHITE Fort
White High football is chal-
lenging way up in class for
its spring classic game.
The Indians are host-
ing Orange Park High at
7 p.m. today. The Raiders
won District 1-6A last year,
while the Indians made the
playoffs as runners-up in
District 2-2B.
"We will try to hold on
as much as we can," Fort
White head coach Demetric
Jackson said. "We are excit-
ed to see where we are
compared to Orange Park.
They have a big squad and
we will see where we are
against all their guys. We
are ready to play."
The teams exchanged
film and Orange Park coach
Danny Green took notice of
Fort White's air attack.
"We want to come down
there and compete, play
well and get ready for our
summer workouts," Green
said. "They have' a great
coaching staff and we are
excited about playing on
Friday, and then we will be
through for the spring."
Green said Orange Park
will bring 64-65 players. He
plans to play starters the
first half and maybe one
series in the second half,
then will go to back-ups and
junior varsity players.
Fort White, which
dressed out fewer than 50
players for its Red & Black
game, may not have that
luxury.
The Indians had great
success in the passing game
in its intrasquad scrimmage,
but Jackson wants to run
the ball better.
"We can't just sit there
and throw it all the time,"
INDIANS continued on 3B


CHS sends three



to All-Star game


Espenship,
Gilliam, Kirkman
will represent.
By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityrepotter.com
Columbia Highwillbe rep-
resented by three players in
the Next Level Future's All-
Star baseball game Saturday
at Tallahassee Community
College.
Zach Espenship, J.T.
Gilliam and Mikey Kirkman
are three of the 32 players
set to compete in the game
as part of a weekend full of
festivities.
Today the players will
take part in a 7 p.m. banquet
at the Next Level baseball
facility, which will feature
former major league player
Dean Palmer and former
Florida State and NFL play-
er Corey Simon.
The Tigers will become
part of the Small Town
team, which will be coached
by Suwannee High's Ronnie


Gray. Assistant coaches are
Holmes County High's Hal
Dixon, Suwannee High's
Phillip Hurst and Holmes
County's Matt Tate.
The Small Town team
will also feature players
from Baker County, Fort
White, Keystone Heights,
Marianna, Port St. Joe,
Suwannee and -Taylor
County.
Justin Kortessis is the
lone representative for the
Indians.
Columbia coach J.T.
Clark is proud to have
three Tigers participate in
the event.
"It's a chance for them to
impress college coaches,"
Clark said. "Mikey is going
in as a .344 hitter with five
home runs. Zach didn't hit
as well as he'd like to last
year, but he's so good as a
defensive catcher that he
was invited. He's .probably
one of the best in the state.
J.T. is a .394 hitter, but he
was selected as a pitcher.
He's got a 1.0 ERA with


velocity between 86 and 88
miles per hour. I just hope
he has a chance to swing."
North Florida Christians'
Mike Posey will coach
the Big Town team which
includes players from
Lincoln, Leon, Godby,
Rickards, North Florida
Christian, Maclay, Florida
High, Chiles and FAMU
high schools.
The game will consist
of a 14-inning contest,
which will begin at 1 p.m.
at Tallahassee Community
College.
The event is expected to
play host to college and pro-
fessional scouts, who will
be in attendance to watch
the workout and game.
Each pitcher will work a
maximum of two innings,
so each pitcher is guaran-
teed work in the game as
only seven pitchers are car-
ried. Players will wear their
high-school jersey during
the contest, but each will be
given a special game hat for
their team,

Ex-teammate says

Lance Armstrong

injected EPO


Associated Press

NEW YORK' A for-
mer teammate of Lance
Armstrong has told "60
Minutes" that he used per-
formance-enhancing drugs
with the seven-time Tour
de France winner to cheat
in cycling races, including
the tour.
Tyler Hamilton says
Armstrong took a blood-
booster called EPO in the
1999 Tour and before the
race in 2000 and 2001.
Armstrong won the race
every year from 1999-2005.
The interview with.
Hamilton was broadcast on
the "CBS Evening News"
on Thursday.
Armstrong has steadfast-
ly denied doping and has


never failed a drug test.
Federal investigators are
probingwhetherArmstrong
and his former U.S. Postal
team engaged in a system-
atic doping program, which
he denies.
"I saw (EPO) in his refriger-
ator.... I saw him inject it more
than one time," Hamilton said,
"like we all did. Like I did,
many, many times."
Hamilton told "60
Minutes" reporter Scott
Pelley: "(Armstrong) took
whatwe all took... the major-
ity of the peloton," referring
to riders in the race. "There
was EPO ... testosterone ...
a blood transfusion."
EPO is a drug that boosts
endurance by increasing
the number of red blood
cells in the body.

Orange takes Richardson's


spring scrimmage, 38-20


By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com

Richardson Middle
School's Orange & Green
spring game was kind of a
closed circuit affair.
The Wolves played in the
practice field behind the
school in front of the stu-
dent body.
Both sides of the strug-
gle exhibited a strong run-
ning attack in the game
won by the Orange team,
38-20.
"All in all, I was sur-
prised with the players and
how they were hitting,"
said Joey O'Neal, who was
conducting his first spring
game as a head coach. "I
was impressed with some
things, but there are a lot
of odds and ends we need
to work on. We will go to
our summer program and


get right for the fall."
The Orange team jumped
out to a 14-0 lead, largely
on the legs of quarterback
Alphonzo Battle and his
bootleg plays.
Battle scored on a
50-yard misdirection run
on the opening series.
Ronnie Collins ran in the
PAT. A fumble recovery set
the White up at the Green
20 and Battle added an
eight-yard touchdown run
for the quick lead.
The Green ansvyered with
a scoring drive. Ladarius
Powell broke a couple of long
runs and scored the touch-
down from two yards out
Battle faked out the
defense again and turned a
third-and-10 into a 70-yard
touchdown run. He threw
to Rodney Williamson for
the PAT and a 22-6 lead
that held up until halftime.


Opening the second half,
the Green got 15-yard runs
from Ronnie Williamson
and Powell. Jarvaris
Thomas added a 10-yard
run for another first down,
but the Green soon faced
third down.
Quarterback Dillion
Brown threw to Powell for
a 25-yard touchdown play.
Brown sneaked in for the
PAT to cut the deficit to
22-14.
The Orange struck
with another big play, as
Rodney Williamson raced
for 68 yards. Collins scored
the touchdown on a four-
yard run and Cedrick
Thompkins tacked on the
extra point.
On first down for the
Green, Powell swept the
left side and led everybody
to the end zone. The PAT
came up short for a 30-20


score.
The Orange scored in
six plays with Collins tak-
ing it 33 yards for the TD.
Thompkins added the extra
point for the final score.
Parents, teachers, admin-
istrators and other dignitar-
ies were among the fans.
One with a particular inter-
est was Columbia High
head coach Brian Allen.
"It is always good to
come out to one of our
feeder programs," Allen
said. "These baby Tigers
will be big Tigers in a few
years, and it is exciting to
come out and watch them.
We have established a solid
foundation with Joey and
Billy (LCMS head coach
Jennings). We coordinate
with them and have been
giving them some of our
plays so we are all on the
same page."


CHS: Beasley brings in traditional Wing-T

running backs," Beasley
said. "Everything plays off
the run. We'll throw in some
play-action passes, but we


don't drop back a lot."
And Dunnellon will have
two good running backs at
their disposal according to


Beasley. "Then there's J'von Swoll,
"Bobby Robinson is a who was a JV kid, who
big, athletic kid, who also is shifty, similar to what
plays free safety," he said. Columbia has."

DEAR ABBY


Co-ed can't escape shadow of

longtime high school rival


, DEAR ABBY: "Maya" and
I competed throughout high
school. We shared common
interests even friends, who
would blow me off to hang
out with her.
We were involved in
speech and debate and were
nominated for the girls' state-
team. I was deemed "too qual-
ified," so Maya got the nomi-
nation. She ran against me for
speech president and I won
by a huge margin. Then the
coach decided she wanted us
to be "co-presidents" and an-
nounced to everyone that the
vote was tied. I was one-upped
constantly.
Later, to my chagrin, I
discovered we'd be going to
the same college. I was told
I'd probably never see her
because of the large campus.
Well, last semester she joined
two activities I'm involved in.
We rushed for a prestigious
pre-law organization. She was
accepted; I wasn't.
As it turns out, we both
want to go to the same law'
school and become corporate
attorneys.
Maya is pretty, popular
and charming. I am plain and
by no means popular. I can't
stand to lose one more thing
to her. After all these coinci-
dences, we'll probably end up
in the same law firm. What can
I do to stop feeling so awful
about myself as Maya contin-
ues to take away all the things
I care about most? TIRED
OF SECOND PLACE


terests that I have ever seen.
He rarely leaves the house ex-
cept for school. I haven't been
able to get him to engage in
a sport or activity with me or
show any type of "normal" kid
behavior.
He speht part of last sum-
mer with me, and when I
asked him questions about
his life and wanted to take
him for a doctor's exam (he's
never had one!), he begged
his mom to come "rescue"
him, which she did. She re-
fuses to discuss this and says
Kyle's just shy.
I feel I must do some-
thing, but what? Maybe if
my ex reads this she'll listen
to someone else. Abby, don't
you see a possible problem
here? DADDY IN THE
DARK IN TEXAS
DEAR DADDY IN THE
DARK: I certainly do. And
had you intervened while your
son was still a minor, there
might have been some way to
have had him medically and
psychologically evaluated.
But he's an adult now. And
unless he is willing to admit
there is a problem and seek
help for it, there isn't a darn
thing you can do at this late
date. If there are other male
family members Kyle trusts,
you might try recruiting their
assistance.

P.O. Box 69440, Los
Angeles, CA 90069.


HOROSCOPES


ARIES (March 21-
April 19): Telling someone
else what to do will result in
discord and a lack of pro-
ductivity. Personal change
and improvement will get
you much further than
trying to change someone
else. A problem with a part-
nership is likely. **
TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): Your patience
and understanding will be
rewarded. Enjoy interaction
with people with similar in-
terests. Love is highlighted,
so plan to enjoy the compa-
ny of someone special this
evening. *****
GEMINI (May.21-June
20): Change may be some-
thing you want but picking
the right time to make a
move is crucial, if you want
to get good results. Not ev-
eryone is on the same page
as you. Work quietly get-
ting your finances and legal
paperwork together. ***
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): Get involved in
something that you truly
believe in and you will sat-
isfy your needs to nurture
and help others. The peo-
ple you meet while volun-
teering or lending a hand
will touch your heart and
form friendships with you
that will mold your future.

LEO (July 23-Aug.
22): Your best effort


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

should be going into your
work and professional rep-'
utation. Not everyone will
be on your team and it will
take plenty of hard work to
win some of your critics' ap-
proval. Don't leave anything
to chance. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Be where the action
is and you'll fit in nicely.
All sorts of opportunities
are available. You shouldn't
have to spend money in or-
der to get ahead. Use your
charm, experience and
skills. Love is apparent.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Put everything you've
got into improving your
living arrangements and
lifestyle. An investment
will turn out well. Don't let
someone who is stingy or
less entrepreneurial stand
in your way. Follow your
dream. ***
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. 21): A short trip that
will help you outwith regard
to business or an important
partnership must be taken.
The ground you will gain
and the deal you can strike
will help you get something
off the ground that you've
wanted for some time. Mix
love and romance into your
plans. ****


SAGITrARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): Ifs up to
you to make things happen
instead of waiting around
for someone else to do the
work. Get together with
someone from your past
and rework an old idea to
fit the current economic
climate. You can bring in
extra cash with a couple of
minor adjustments. ***
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): Express your
feelings sincerely and you
will get the response you
are looking for. Knowing
where you stand will make
it easier to make.personal
decisions that will alter
your life, home and family.
Don't limit what you can do.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): You'll have to
juggle in order to get ev-
erything done. Don't let
someone's last-minute
change of plans cause you
to make a mistake. Think
matters through. Don't let
your pride stand in the way.

PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): Put every-
thing you've got into your
career. Express your feel-
ings for someone you have
wanted to befriend or get
into a business or personal'
relationship with. You will
get a favorable response.!

DEAR TIRED: Your high
school speech coach's obvi-
bus favoritism for Maya was
terrible, and for that I am sor-
ry. But you have allowed your
feelings of being constantly
one-upped to become a self-
fulfilling prophecy.
Stop concentrating on
Maya and start devoting all
of your attention, to yourself
and your goals. While good
looks and charm are power-
ful assets, so are being bril-
liant, self-assured and accom-
plished in one's field. Let the
future take care of itself and
you may be pleasantly sur-
prised to find out that she's
not in it. Or if she is, that she's
no longer the focus of your
obsession and you are BOTH
