he water that flows
from thle springs
that create thle
Ichetucknee River
T~comes from a
hydrological basin. This
aqluifer is an underground
reservoir in the limestone
beneath Lake City and
38 percent of Columbia
County. The water moves
slowly through the limestone
until it reaches a cave and
then flows rapidly to the
springs. This reservoir is
recharged by ramn that falls in
the basin that extends north
to Interstate 10-
During droughts, like
we are now experiencing,
Clayhole, Cannon, and Rose
creeks stop flowing, lake
levels drop and Alligator
Lake commonly drains into
sinkholes. ?There is little or
no recharge of the aquifer
and spring flow is diminished.
This is a natural phenomenon
although in recent years it
seems to have worsened.
Springs are the natural drains
of the aquifer; however, there
are now thousands of wells
in the Ichetucknee basin that
are drilled into the aquifer for
drinking water and
agriculture. As the populations
of Lake City and Columbia

andt water- conservation would
have greater importance.
According to the St Pete
'Times, per capital water
consumption in several '
F~lorida counties ranges from
114 gallons to 242 gallons per
day. Over half of this water is
used for lawns and other
irrigation. Water is also
wasted in older toilets that use
4 gallons per flush while new
high efficiency toilets use only
1 gallon per flush.
One of the objections to
bottled spring water
operations is that the water
is shipped out of the spring
basinh and is lost to the spring
anhd river. Similarly, water
consumed by dairy cows in a
spring basin is trucked out of
the basin as milk. There are
no bottled water operations
or- dairies in the Ichetucknee
Springs Basin.
SAtlanhta is in the
Apalachicola River
watershed and that city's
water use is damaging
SFlorida's Ap~alachicola River

to insure that Lake City's

steadily inlcreasing~ impact on
this aquifer.
Unfortunately, mnany
consider water to be free nld
unlimnited. After all, when we
turn on the faucet, it never
stops flowinlg. They don't
understand that the water- they
arue using, and often wasting,
was flowing to Ichetucktnee
Springs when it was captured
by their well (or a city well).
It is spring water. As more
water is withdrawn by wells in
the spring tbasi~n, less water
will flow from the springs and
eventually they may cease to
flow. This has happened to a
number of Florida springs.
In the absence of water, all
that is left is a hole in the
ground. Perhaps if everyone
understood that the water
flowing from their faucet is
Ichetucknee Spnings water,
it would have greater value

We all remember Hilton, the man
who gained national media attention
for the grisly slaying for which he is
charged camped illegally here a few
days before the Georgia murders in an
area off Gum Swamp Road. Georgia
authorities found a warning ticket from
Columibia County in his van at the time
of his arrest.
It is suspected that Hilton's
encounter with a forest service ranger
may have made him nervous and

occurred before he was spotted
camping near lake City. Hilton also is
suspected of a similar murder in North
By all accounts, he is a disturbed
man, now a convicted murderer facing
life in prison without the possibility of
parole. According to reports, his only
chance at freedom will come in about
30 years when he's in his 90s and
eligible for parole.
In this case in Georgia, justice was

Lawrence sprints to home plate to score a run in the Tigers' 14-5 preseason win over Madison County High on

Columbia High's Austin
Tuesday at CHS.

COlumbia High
defeats Madison
14-5 in opener.
cwhite@lakecityreporter. com

The Columbia High
varsity baseball team opened
its preseason with a domi-
nating 14-5 win over visiting
Madison County High on
Tuesday, leaving coaches
with hardly anything more to
ask from their players.
"W~e were looking for our
older guys to step up and
lead by example (Tuesday),"
Bennett said. "They dermnitely

did that."
The Tigers had 11 of 12
batters get on base, and 14
runners found home plate
in three different innings
while four different Columbia
pitchers held Madison to four
runs on eight hits.
And with those flumbers,
it means some of the young
players had big parts to play,
"We asked everybody to
play a role, and that's what
they did," he said. "(Cameron)
Sweat, Brandon Scott, Codey
Black~well and Jacob Tillotson
all had great games and
they're all tenth graders.
Everyone had a good game,

and that's how we'll have to
play to win."
Scott was 2-for-3 with
three RBIs, Sweat was 2-for-
4 with an RBI and two runs,
Blackwell was 1-for-2 with a
run and an RBI and Tillotson
was 2-for-4 with two RBIs and
a run. Together, the three
sophomores accounted for 11
of the Tigers' 14 runs, either
from the plate or as a runner.
The game began with what
Bennett called a "dogfight."
The Cowboys went three-and-
out against Tigers opener
Brandon Leslie, and Columbia
went through three batters in
11 pitches.
Madison picked up a two-

run lead in the top of the sec-
ond on a single to center field
and a low pitch that rolled to
the back stop.
Columbia found a groove
in the bottom of the inning
with one out Blackwell
batted in Sweat with a dou-
ble and Scott hit a single to
center field on the next at-bat
to bring in Gerren Bannister.
Daniel Gutzman flied out for
out No. 2, but Blackwell was
fast enough to tag up at third
and make it home to give the
Tigers the lead.
Tillotson nailed a triple to

In basketball you go to the. man
with the hot hand, and Kenny
Williams was on fire Tuesday in the
opening round of the District 4-5jA
tournament in Leesburg. Williams
scored 44 points to lead Columbia
High past the host team, 65-53.
"We came out: in the first
quarter trying to establish Kenny
and he responded," coach Trey
Hosford said. "He hit two 3s to start
the game."

Williams scored nine points in the
first quarter, as Columbia led 13-10.
At the half, Columbia led 28-26 with
Kenny having 20 points. He added
11 more in the third quarter and
13 in the fourth,
. "We have known Kenny could do
that and he stepped up and showed
why he has led us all year," Hosford
said. "The guys knew Kenny had
a special thing going and they set
screens for him and pulled the ball
out when the shot: was not there and
ran the offense through him. It was
the smartest: we've played all year."
Leesburg played hard in front of
the home folks. Columbia built a
19-12 lead in the second quarter
and the Jackets answered with a 7-0

run after a time out. Leesburg cut
the lead to six points in the fourth
quarter, before the Tigers ran out.
Cameron Reynolds scored nine
points, with five from Dont'ae Davis,
three from Julio Viens, and two each
from Joe Bradshaw and Matt Jerry.
Davis was saddled with foul trouble
in the first half and Hosford praised
the play and defensive rebounding
of lan Benjanmin, who was called on
to step in.

I f outre like me an
or maybe you live
i fo'elk eadn the central or
southern part of the state
and haven't come to terms
that deer season's over for
the year, February light
have just what the doctor
ordered. You see, there's
a second phase of the
muzzleloading gun season
Feb. 14-24, but only in the
Northwest Hlunting Zone.
Immediately following
the close of general gun
season in the Northwest
Zone, this muzzleloading
season offers continued
deer and hog hunting
opportunities. The best
part is it occurs during
the rut in some areas and
offers the best chance of
taking a trophy
whitetail. For instance,
in most parts of the
Apalachicola National
Forest and in Gadsden
County, the ruf~s still going
strong during this time.
Also, on Eglin Air Force
Base, the rut's just coming
The hunt's for wild hogs
and bucks with at least one
antler five inches or more
in length above the
hairline. On private land,
the daily bag limit is two
deer. Bag limits and
antler size for deer on
wildlife management areas
can differ, so check the
area's brochure before you
It's important to note
- no turkeys may be taken
during this season.
On private lands,
crossbows can be used
during this season, as
well, as muzzleloaders and
bows, but you must have
the $5 muzzleloading gun
permit to hunt, no matter
which method of take you
choose to use.
On WMAs, this late
season's still referred to as
the archery/muzzleloading
gun season. Only bows
and muzzleloaders can be
used no crossbows are
allowed, unless you
possess a Disabled Person
Crossbow Permit. To hunt
during this season on
WMAs, you must have an
Archery Permit if you use
a bow and a Muzzleloading
Gun Permit if you use a
Bows and crossbows
must have a minimum
draw weight of 35 pounds,
and hand-held releases on
bows are permitted. For
taking deer, broadheads
must have at least two
sharpened edges with a
minimum width of 73 inch.
Muzzleloaders that ~fire
single bullets, when used
for taking deer, must be at
least .40caiber. Those
firing two or more balls
must be 20-gauge or larger.
SYou're allowed to take
deer and hogs over feeding
stations on private land, as
long as the feeding
station's been established
for at least six months prior
to the season and
maintained year-round. It's
illegal to use bait on
Here's hoping your
persistence pays off. Take
a kid hunting. If you don't
have any children, offer to
take someone else's be a
mentor. Just have fun, hunt
safely and ethically.
