home of his daughter, M.

on Nov. 9, 1909, and was
laidoto rest next to his wife ;
in the little cemetery of
the Bethlehem Lutheran
Church. An article pub-
lished in .the Lutheran
Church Visitor, Nov. 18,
1909, showed that he was
highly' regarded by the citi-
zens of Columbia County:
"Simplicity "and sincerity
were his marked character-,
istics. Piety and peace were
his possessions. Good will
and good~ cheer pervaded .
the atmosphere in which
he moved. His spirit was
always sweet and saintly.
His words and his works,
his moral and material sup-
port, made him a model
church member." Such was
the legacy of Frederick
Hartwell Koon.

born about 1860. She mar- ~
ried John Thomas on Nov.
24, 1880.
The Frederick Hartwell
Koon family moved to
Columbia County some-
time after the 1860 cen-
sus of South Carolina and
before Aug. 9, 1863, when
Hartwell Koon enlisted in
the Confederate Army in
Lake~ City. He .enlisted in
Company E and was later
transferred to Company
H, 9th Florida Infantry
Regiment, Finnegan's
Brigade, Oct. 1, 1863. He
participated in the Battle
of Olustee and was slightly
wounded in the battle; how-
ever, he was still able to
perform his soldier duties
in other battles. On Sept.
23, 1864, he was admitted to
Howard's Grove Hospital in
Richmond, Va., and received
a furlough to Lake City on

Sept. 30, 1864. He surren-
dered at Appomattox, Va.,
on April 9, 1865, and slowly
made liis way home with
other soldiers from his regi
ment. On July 22, 1909, he
applied for and received a ,
Soldier's Pension for his
Confederate service.
After the war, E H. Koon
became a farmer and lived
in the Tustenuggee com-
munity, where he was enu-
merated with his family in
the 1870 census. Although
a. farmer by occupation,
his driving passion was his
church. He was a charter
member of the Bethlehem
Lutheran Church in
Columbia County, andhie
helped build three succes-
sive churches of that con- ,
gregation. .

Hunter said he feels it's
important to hold the cere-
mony to honor the soldiers
each year. -
"The Olustee Battle was a
significant event in not only
our local history, but our
Nation's' history as well,"
he said. "Even though
our republic was still very
young in 1864, the soldiers
that fought and died at
Olustee were American sol-
diers, and it is important to
honor their service. Each of
those soldiers, Union and
Confederate, played a very

important role in the shap-
ing of our nation."
The Oaklawn Cemetery
service, which takes place
before the opening ceremo-
nies of the battle festival, is
noted as one of the more
solemn events commemo-
rating the festival.
Hunter said being able to
speak in honor of the fallen
troops is an important part
of the annual battle festival.
"As a 30-year citizen sol-
dier in the Florida Army
National Guard, it is with
great personal pride that I

can honor all of oui- military
veterans," he said. "When
our military goes to war,
the soldiers, sailors, airmen,
marines and coast guards-
men, are not concerned
about making history. But
that is exactly what they
do and their story must be
retold to our future genera-
tions; for their stories are
lessons in courage, dedica-
tion and honor.
"It is vitally important
that our history be retold'
factually ... for our youth to
learn from."

to tell Jack Exum he

lousy Bible scholar.

editor; the task fell to me. To
his esredit, he didn't shoot the

He did what Jack always did
when I had him in my office at
the R~eport'er. He considered.
He considered the source (a
disgruntled reader). He con-
sidered the words that reader
Shad written for me tob convey to
Shim. Most of all, he considered
something that many colum-
nists are loath to ever consider.
Ie considered she might be
For the record, she wasti't,
but that didn't let Jack stop
himself from thinking that
there was at least one reader
out there, on one particular
,Saturday, he didn't reach.
Out of the hundreds of col-
umns Jack submitted for week-
ly publication, I didn't see that
as a poor return. He did. More
than anything, Jack wanted to
teach, not preach, and it was
his unique talent that he could
do both. In this one case, he
had failed..
"I can do better," he said.
And that's what I will'
remember most about Jack, a -
teacher, preacher, writer and
friend who died Sunday: He
always seemed to do better, no
matter what life threw at him.
Jack's columnns were full of
adversity. From mission trips
gone wrong, to child rear-
ing and dealing with, dreaded
Alzheimer's Disease, Jack
' tackled topics with grace and
humor mostly grace and
spoke to all of us. Through his
writing we learned how Jack
guided his family with the faith
that any challenge laid before
him could be turned into a life-
enniching experience.
And because Jack had the
heart of a teacher, he didn't let
the instruction stop with his
c unms. I onic ran into Jatck

beat, he bent down, introduced
himself and asked them if he

The smile on my 10-year-
old's face was immediate and
huge when she saw the title:
"How to handle your parents!
10 infallible ways to handle
(cope with, understand, accept,
Live with) your parents ...

One of the most the difficult
things that I have had to do in
a long time was to tell her that

He made his case. I listened.
I was rewarded with one of
those heartwarming Jack
Exum smiles even though
I could tell he wasn't feeling
well, and probably not feeling
much like smiling. He shook
my hand for what would be the
last time.
So now I say goodbye to my
friend, and those two-handed
greetings that were more like
hugs than handshakes. Jack,

ence of my own family: You left

Open eyes to blind

To the Editor: '
There are people who blindly
accept what their government
tells them to do. Unfortunately.
soldiers have no choice. They
must follow orders whether
their government is following a
righteous cause such as protect-
ing America or a more sinister
cause such as empire building
or nation building.
The truly brave among them
speak out on their return when
.they realize their government's
motives are not in the interest
of American safety, but actu-
ally furthers danger. They are
the true patriots who are really
interested mn the freedoms we
hold dear.
Such are the men and
women of the Winter Soldier ,

- Me VeV l am et two were
outraged by what they were
ordered to do. They destroyed
a people and their lands with
some of most vile substances
known to man. They came to
believe there was a better way.
The newest group is Iraqi
Veterans Against the War. They
were blatantly lied to as to the
reason they were sent to war.
There were no weapons of mass
destruction and the leadership
knew it. No Iraqi was part of
the 9/11 attack. The attack- .
ers were Saudi, and while they
fought and died on Iraqi soil,
their commander-in-dhief was
photographed holding hands
with Saudi princes. One of his
first acts after 9/11 was to give
safe passage to all members
of the Bin Laden family in this
I no longer support President
Obama because he is furthering
this war of deceit. He, too, is
sending young men and women
into harm's way for grossly
misrepresented reasons. He

thinks we must continue this
because now we have created
even more people who hate us.
So continuing the slaughter will
make less?
If only we can let the
peacemakers such as Greg
Mortenson who wrote of his
efforts to win hearts in Pakistan
in his book "Three Cups of
STea" do the bulk of the work at
keeping peace in this world, we
would have much less reason
to use war as an answer. I have
relatives in the services, as do :
many of you. Their willingness
to stand up for us when real
danger is near should never,
ever be dishonored by a manip-
ulating government. Listen to

Digital revolution an
isolated event

To the Editor:
Frontline on PBS aired
"Digital Nation," a report on
the effects of technology, the
Internet and multitasking.
Students spending up to
50 hours a week using digital
technology tend to multitask.
Believing they have mastered
the skill, their performance
is actually slower and "really
lousy." Some test scores at MIT
dropped 25 percent on average.
Grade schools say violence is
down and attendance~ is up, but
kids defeat firewalls that block
social sites. Easily distracted,
they have short attention
spans, difficulty pursuing linear
thought, and expect instant
gratification. Reading and writ-
ing skills deteriorate. Essays
become a series of disconnected
paragraishs. .
Bristol Myers' huge complex
in Westchester, N.Y., is a ghost
town. Most employees work
remotely; many have never met
their co-workters. After a day

of texting, Googling, e-mail,
Twitter, and Facebook, people
feel they accomplished some-
thing, but has anything of real
value been achieved?
The military has replaced
some recruiting offices with
Army Experience Centers, offer-
ing free video games and life.
size simulators to kids 13 and
older. Protesters chant "War
is Not a Game." But Air Force
drone pilots in Lias Vegas are .
required to wear flight suits at '
work to remind them they are '
fighting a real war in the Middle
East. Then they drive home to
dinner with their families and
unwind playing video games.
South Korea's technology-
based economy offers cheap
24/17 Internet cafes where
players have died during
video game marathons. After
a three year study, gaming is
considered an addictive mental
disorder, and free government
intervention camps for kids
have questionable success.
One American girl quit her job
to play video games 16 hours
a day. A grandmother with an
online cooking class learned
technology to keep up, but feels
something is missing when
people pour their heart out to
the Internet. Her grandchildren
send e-mails. She says, "I'd like
to hear your voice."
After one week, young chil-
'dren` begin to accept a virtual
experience as reality. Many
video gamers say their closest
friends are other players they
will never meet. Technology can
lead to isolation and alienation
.when real life pales in compari-
son to the virtual world, a prob-
lem researchers are trying to
solve with more technology.
What kind of future are we
creating when digital technol-
ogy is no longer something we
do but how we live? And who
will feed us as we sit glued to
our digital screens?

and texting

take a

::wrong turn

than sufficient evi-
d llhon wsantht
texting while driving
are killer distractions.
The U.S. Transportation ,
Department banned truck
and bus drivers from sending
S text messages on hand-held
devices while on the road. Last
year, President Barack Obama
'essue oan on er proh btig feid;
driving government-owned
vehicle's or using governme~nt-
owned equipment. That's a
good start.
Research by the Federal
Motor Carrier Safety
Administration has found that
a typical driver takes his eyes
off the road ~for 4.6 seconds out
of every 6 to text or read a text.
That's almost 5 seconds that
can turn deadly.
Already, 19 states and the
District of Columbia ban tex-
ting while driving, though
Florida is not one of them. It
should be.
Truth is, a new law won't
mean instant protection for safe
drivers who don't text or use
hand-held devices on the road.
Crash claims in some states
with such bans have yet to pro-
disce a decrease in those crash-
es, according to the Highway
Loss Data Institute. .
That's to be expected. Like
drunk-driving laws, such mea-
sures take time for the public to
understand the consequences .
and change behavior.
Nor does it help when car
manufacturers include such dis-
tractions as DVD's on vehicles
front console, which can be jig-
gered to run movies while driv-
ing. Outrageous.
It ivill take more than bans to
change techie-hungry attitudes
about texting: Doing nothing,
though, isn't an option. Stiff
fines and strong~ enforcement
can help move public opinion to
the safety zone.

Today is Wednesday,
Feb. 10, the 41st day of
2010. There are 324 days left
in the year.
SOn Feb. 10, 1967, the *
25th Amendment to the
Constitution, dealing with pres-
Sidential disability and succes-
sion, was ratified as Minn'esota
and Nevada adopted it.
W In 1763, Britain, Spain and
France signiedl the Treaty of
Paris, ending the. Seven Years'
MIn 1840, Britain's Queen
` Victoria married Prince Albert
'of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.
SIn 1841, Upper Canada
and Lower Canada were pro-
claim~ed united under an Act
of Union passed by the British
Parliament. ,

French liner Normandie cap-
sized in New York Harbor.

water grant that would pay
$100,000 each year for five

Coleman said this year's
reception went extremely ~
well with camaraderie over-
flowing from the crowd.
"They were visiting so
hard, I had trouble get-
ting them to quiet down so
. they could come in so we
could have a meeting," he
said. "It's good to know that
there's friends and contacts
being made. It's important
to show appreciation for
the sponsors: If it weren't
for First Federal and those

major sponsors, we couldn't
do this. We appreciate them
so much."
The 2010 Olustee Battle
Festival Program is dedi-
cated to the memory of the
late Joe Wilsoni and the late
John Shoemaker. .
Wilson died in July 2009
and served as the grand
marshal for the 2009
Olustee Festival Parade.
Shoemaker, who 'died
in April 2009, was a long-
time advocate for a thriving
downtown Lake City.
As part of the event, each

sponsor was given a framed
copy of this year's 01ustee
Battle Festival potter.
"It's something they can
put up in their place of
business and it recognizes
them as a sponsor and their
contributions," Coleman
"Wie're looking forward
to a great festival, and I
encourage everybody to
come out. If you haven't
seen it, you're missing out
and if you've seen it, then
you know why you need to
be here," he said.

Bonds also noted a few
key changes in his game
that helped him achieve the
first-team honors.
"He pass blocks pretty
well and blocks well at the

"The thing he's gotten a lot

C::4HS: Bright things in front of Tigers on the baseball diamond in 2010

nitinued From Page 10
Eutrple and Gold game as
flift got a sneak peak at the
new batch of Tigers. '
-:,.'The teams were divided
::: v- ith JV and varsity play-
er :-s on both teams," Gillman
-:.said. "I was extremely
'::plIeased. The Gold defeated
Sthe Purple, 5-3. The Purple
te am had a 3-1 lead going
li::tto the top of the six and
the: Gold team answered
w~ith' four runs before add-
~inione in the seventh."

you split teams, sometimes
you don't get as good of
pitching on one end. We
didn't have that. The first
game, we'll probably start
King and counter with
Bailey on Friday."
Offensively, Gillman was
also pleased with what he
sawv from the Tigers. .
"When you 'take those
1T hits and put it on one
lineup; that's a good day
in anybody's~ book," he

man, Brent Stalter, went an
inning and had two strike-
outs. Bailey pitched three
scoreless inning' with only
45 pitches. He had three
strikeouts. I told the team
I liked a lot of things I saw
this weekend. Obviously,
we're not where we want
to be, but at this stage in
the season, we're at a good
point to face someone other
than ourselves. There's
bright things ahead for us."

Pitching was one area that
Gillman was pleased with and
he may havie found his start-
ers for Thursday's preseason
game against Baker County
High at Santa Fe High. *
"rI wais real pleased with
our pitching," Gillman said.
"~We executed in allitspects
of the game. Blake King
pitched exceptionally well
for the Gold. Kellan Bailey
went three strong innings
for the Purple team. When

said. "Anytime they play,
they're competing. Even
though -it was a Purple and
Gold game, the guys were
competing hard. Camei-on
Sweat had a good night at
the plate. He was 3-for-4 and
hit the ball sharply every
time. He played center field
and came .idi to close the
game out for the Gold in
the seventh with two strike-
outs. Cody Blackwell also
had a couple of hits."

Overall, Gillman liked what
he saw with the Tigers in this
intrasquad scrimmage.
"Junior catcher Zach
Espenship had two caught-
stealings and picked a run-
ner off third," Gillman said.
"He blocked the ball w~ell. I
had three JV guys throwing
and Zach did a.great job of
handling that. When you
don't work with a gujr every
day it's a little difficult, but,
he did agreal~:job, A 'freshi-
