Family members say 7-year-old
Daphne Greene is recovering from the
psychological trauma of witnessing two
pit bulls maul her pony at her Lake City
home Sunday morning.

upset and worried about her pony,"'
Susan Greene said. "If you witnessed

It's uncertain if the pony, Tom Tom,
will recover from the physical injuries,
which the owners described,as so
severe they thought they would have to
kill the animal to put it out.of its misery.
"There's hardly a spot on that pony's
body that doesn't have a bite," Greene
said. "That could.have been my grand-
Daphne's mother, Laurel Greene, said
when she ran outside, she saw the pony
lying on the ground, covered in blood;
with the two dogs standing over it
"I didn't know if he was dead or
alive," she said.
She said she yelled at the dogs until
one crawled under the 4-foot fence that
surrounded the pony's pen. The other
dog jumped over the fence, she said.
When Columbia County.Animal
Control officers came to the house,
Laurel Greene said she described the
two dogs and the officers immediately
knew where to look for the animals.
A'complaint against the dogs was filed
Sept 10 by Ernestine Brantley, who
lives on NW Saturn Lane in Lake City,.

Lake City resident John Greene applies ointment on the wounds of Tom Tom, the fam-'
ily pony, on Tuesday. The horse is recovering after two pit bulls mauled Tom Tom in an
unprovoked attack on Sunday. 'It's a shame that this happened,' Greene said. 'I thought
he was dead, to tell you the truth. What hurts me is to see the horse in so much pain and
to see the kids in so much pain when they are taking care of him. What if this would've

happened to one of my kids?'
animal control officials said.
. Brantley told officers that two pit
bulls attacked and killed her cat She
provided a good description of the ani-
mals because she got a closer look at
the dogs than she wanted.
Brantley got in her wheelchair to
go outside and yell at the dogs to stop
the attack, according to a Columbia
County Sheriff's Office incident report.
The dogs stopped, turned in her direc-
tion and began barking. Brantley told
officers she was afraid the dogs were
preparing to attack her. She continued
screaming at the dogs until they ran

away, the report said.
She told officers the cat died on her

Investigators went to a house at 285
NW Saturn Lane and questioned Steven

LCPD out in force to make sure folks buckle up

Department is leading local lef-
forts to make sure motorists
and passengers buckle up while
traveling on area roads over the
Thanksgiving holiday.

LCPD officers on the roadways ..
"We're participating in the
national wave so officers have
received some additional instruc-
tions as far as things we're looking
for and one of the biggest ones is
the use of seatbelts by all occu-
pants, not just the driver. That
includes children," Blanchard
said. "Because the holiday sea-,

son is starting we're increasing
our patrols and we do have more
officers out there. We're asking
the officers to pay a little more
attention to the traffic and driving

According to data released
from the U.S. Department
of Transportation's National

Highway Traffic Safety
Administration, night time is one
of the more dangerous times on
the road because seat belt use is
traditionally lower.
During the 2009 Thanksgiving
holiday period, 303 passenger
vehicle occupants died in motor
vehicle traffic crashes, including
115 during daylight hours and 187
during night time hours'.
"Seatbelts have saved more
lives than any other single piece

of automotive safety equipment,"
said LCPD Crime Prevention
Officer Mike Lee. "But in order

On this the fourth
Thanksgiving since the
economy sank, prices for
everything from airline
flights to groceries are going
up, and some Americans are
scaling back. Yet in many
useholds, the occasion is
important to skimp on.

Thanksgiving airfares are'
up 20 percent this year, and
the average price of a gal-
lon of gas has risen almost
20 percent, according to
travel tracker AAA. Still,
about 42.5 million people
are expected to travel, the
highest number since the
start of the recession.
. But even those who
choose to stay home and
cook for themselves will
probably spend more. A
16-pound turkey and all
the trimmings will cost an
average of $49.20, a 13 per-
cent jump from last year, or
about $5.73 more, accord-
ing to the American Farm
Bureau Federation, which
says grocers have raised
prices to keep pace with
higher-priced commodities.

Santa's Workshop Lady Gaga style

or the grand opening
of Gaga's Workshop, it
seemed as if Lady Gaga
chartered a sleigh, picked
up Santa Claus and Willy
Wonka along the way and landed
Monday night at Barneys New York
flagship on Madison Avenue.
The Workshop is the retailer's
in-store holiday shop, conceived,
designed and christened by Lady
Gaga 5,500 square feet of bright
colors, crazy shapes and a gigantic
cartoon statue of the superstar herself
in a pinup pose surrounded by jagged
mirrors and sitting atop thousands of
black plastic discs..
from the street, passers-ly get a
hint of what's taken over the fifth floor
of the store since Gaga and stylist
Nicola Formichetti also created the
seasonal window displays, always an
attraction during the holidays, but the
crowds typically don't start building
hours before the unveiling as they did
,, on Monday.
'To keep them entertained, a troupe
of clowns-turned-carolers sang some of
Gaga's signature songs, including "The
Edge of Glory" and "Born This Way."
"It's a 'Charlie and the Chocolate
Factory' moment," Gaga said. "We
t wanted it all to be whimsical and fun,
' with a sense of art and fashion."

The nature of fifan-
'fl cial markets is to
anticipate. If they
can envision oppor-,
tunity, they thrive. If
they foresee danger down the
road, they wither.
The markets tanked on
Monday not because the con-
gressional supercommittee
failed to reach an agreement on
U.S. deficit reduction. The Dow
Jones industrial average plum-
meted more than 248 points
because analysts are beginning
to envision the real-world con-
sequences of that gridlock.
What they see, isn't pretty.
They see debt payments
skyrocketing as a proportion'
of federal budgets. They see
interest costs rising, possibly as
a result of an even lower U.S.
bond rating. They see private,
credit markets evaporating as
government debt squeezes
them out of the financial pic-
ture. They see slower growth,
if not stagnation or even reces-
sion. In essence, they see
Greece. And all the growing
political instability that accom-
panies a financial crisis like that
in Greece.
The supercommittee was
meeting when debt was top-
pling governments in Europe,
and yet it failed to se itlat tia s
topocan happen to us.
The failure-f the-supercom-
mittee to reach compromise
to do its job was a massive
failure of leadership. With both
sides drawing deep lines in the
sand, fieither side left room for
what the people clearly wanted,
which was progress toward a
sane federal budget
The "tea party" and "Occupy"
movements have passionately
argued that a Washington insid-
er game kills progress on our
most pressing national prob-
lems. Supercommittee mem-
bers seemed to miss all that .
If so, they can always check
the markets, which already
have their GPS tracking devices
firmly fixed on Greece ... and
the frightening social instability
that lay beyond.

L ance Gay was an
immensely talented
reporter and unlike
so many of that breed
no prima donna.
Thus, when The Washington
Star folded it was a mystery
why no other publication had
snapped him up.
His explanation was that he
had vowed not to take a job
until he had found one for a
Star librarian with a criminal
record. I told Lance that while
Scripps Howard News Service
did not have an opening for a
bookie it did have one for him
and to just come on over when
he was ready.
He did, arriving in a mon-
strous old Chevy sagging on its'
rear springs from the weight of
his unfinished doctoral thesis
in the trunk. The thesis went
into storage and the Chevy was
replaced by an MG of aston-
ishing unreliability, followed
by a succession of tiny Mazda
Miatas. This in itself wouldn't
be noteworthy except that
Lance was a very large man.
As a labor reporter covering
Sthe AFL-CIO's regular gather-
ings in Miami Beach, photos of
him lounging on a deck chair
would regularly appear in the
nation's newspapers with cut-
lines broadly hinting that here

He was a fearless but not reck-
less reporter although he did

border until it was explained to
them the poor p.r. consequences

than a day when I phoned his
hotel and in that special English
reserved for foreigners told the
operator I badly needed to talk to
a Mr. Gay. "Oh, you mean Lance.
He's in the bar. Let me get him
for you," she said. Lance had the
good reporter's knack for quick,
ly making useful friends.
Onesbf.the great sights of
that war, we were told, was
-the sight of Lance departing
for Kuwait in a brand'new
Burgundy Chrysler New
Yorker laden with emergency
supplies of spare tires and
scotch. The car was returned
singed and discolored by the
smoke from burning oil wells,
and dinged by shrapnel kicked
up from the roads. Even by
Lance's standards, it was a
major expense account item.
Once in uncharacteristically
furtive fashion he phoned me
from Berlin,to say he might have
to change hotels suddenly and
without notice, perhaps doing so
under an assumed name. In any
case, he'd get back to me.
It seemsthat unable to get
a dial-up connection from the
phone in his room, he had
removed the wall plate and
hardwired his laptop into the
hotel's computer system. We -
got the story but he caused
the hotel's computer system to
crash, taking with it their res-
ervations, billing records and
cash registers. He departed
just as the technicians were
approaching his floor.
Lance had started at the
University of Maryland intend-
ing a career as a historian and
he remained a constant reader


of histories.
He had a thorough if quirky
grasp of contemporary his-
tory. The high point of many
Scripps Howard news interns'
stay in Washington was Lance's
introductory tour of Capitol
Hill, that included the usual
visits to the press galleries
and document rooms, the best
way to buttonhole lawmakers
and a visit to the pillar, on the
Capitol's west steps that was
the site of a celebrated love-
making during an all-night. se-
sion of Congress.
Lance believed that no
reporter should return from
an assignment empty-handed.
An editor would call him with
a preposterous idea for a story
- it happens and Lance would
argue, invariably correctly, that
the assignment would take up
too much time and at the end of
it there would be no story.
The editor would forget
the idea and start to move on
to something else but almost
immediately the phone would
ring. It would be Lance saying,
"You know, there's a way we
can make this work if we just.
.. Once implanted, it could be
very hard to talk Lance out of
an idea, especially if he sensed
there was a conspiracy involved.
'Faced with growing mobility
and breathing issues, Lance
took a buyout in 2006, leaving
a huge hole in our operation.
There was no story he could
not cover and write about
quickly and cleanly, and in our
business this is praise of the
highest order.
Lance died of respiratory
disease Sunday night at home,
with his daughters at his side.
Lance will be remembered
as long as newspaper people
gather to tell stories about the
wonderful characters who ply
their chosen trade.

In appreciation of farm-city partnerships

To the Editor:
This Thanksgiving Day, as we
gather with family and friends
to count our blessings, let's give
thanks for the bounty we enjoy
not just on this holiday, but every
day. ,The safe, nutritious, abun-
dant food supply that is produced
by our farmers and ranchers is
one of those blessings. We also
benefit from other agricultural
products used to produce the
clothing, housing, medicines,
fuel and other products we use
on a daily basis.
Foods, fibers and fuels are
available to us because of a
broad partnership of farmers and
ranchers, processors, brokers,
truckers, shippers, advertisers,

wholesalers and retailers. The
collaboration of these members
of 6ur society helps maintain our
standard of living. Rural and
urban residents are "Partners
in Progress" who produce the
products, consume the products,
and make them readily available
through an efficient production
and marketing chain.
In appreciation of this farm-
city partnership, the President
of the United States annually
proclaims the week leading up
to and including Thanksgiving
Day as National Farm-City Week.
On these seven days, Farm-City
Week is celebrated nationwide.
Neither the farm nor the city can
exist in isolation. Our interde-
pendence creates jobs, products,

markets and relationships that
build our economy and support
our collective well-being.
As we celebrate
Thanksgiving, let's remember
the vital farm-city partnerships
that have done so much to
improve the quality of our lives.
Rural and urban communities
working together have made
the most of our rich agricul-
tural resources, and have made
significant contributions to our
health and well-being and to the
strength of our nation's econo-
my. For this, we give thanks.

P perhaps memory has
grown golden and
the rough edges
have worn off; but it "?
seems that there was .,
a time in this country when
Thanksgiving was a benign and "
festive stand-alone celebration. 5
School children dressed up
as Pilgrims, Indians and turkeys -
in pageants observing the 1621 ;:o
feast that served as a gesture of
friendship toward the Indians
who helped save the infant
Plymouth Bay colony from
starvation. On a more elevated
level, it marked the Mayflower
Compact, signed a year earlier, ,.
That was the European settlers'
first written step toward demo-
cratic self-government
We imagine that the pageants
have begun to disappear. The
portrayal of the 'Pilgrims might
offend some religious sensibili- *,.
ties. Our new political correct- ,
ness toward Native Americans
seems to consist of erasing pub-.,,
lic acknowledgement of their -,,'
existence, by outlawing Indian
nicknames for schools. And a
powerful vegan movement is
gradually edging the turkeys off .-
the stage.
It seemed a harmless conceit
The young scholars would learn-',,
soon enough that that early
display of amity between 'the -
Pilgrims and the Wampanoags
.would end in a series of bloody' ,
and brutal massacres as the
Europeans encroached on
.Indian lands.-
They would also learn that
the promise of the Mayflower
Compact would not be fulfilled;
for another 150 years, aiind for
blacks not for another 244.
If the myths of Thanksgiving
are fading, Thanksgiving Day
itself is in danger. Due to

ing a landmark in American
history is in danger of being '.

the National Retail Federation,

from a leisurely mid-morning

Stores are opening earlier and"
earlier. Last year, the number
of people who went shopping at ,>
midnight, when many of the big
retailers open for Friday, tripled
from the year before, and the
NRF estimated that almost one-
fourth of shoppers hit the stores

Bush tax cut debate dooms deal to cut deficit

Associated Press
WASHINGTON A long-run-
ning war between Democrats and
Republicans over Bush-era tax cuts'
doomed the debt supercommittee's
chances of reaching a deal. Efforts
to overhaul the tax code may await
the same fate as both.parties gear
up to make taxes a central issue in
the 2012 elections.
Republicans insisted during the
supercommittee negotiations that
curbing tax breaks to raise revenues
be coupled with guarantees that all
the Bush tax cuts would continue
beyond 2012. The tax cuts, which
affect families at every income

level, were enacted under President
George W. Bush and were extend-
ed through 2012 under President
Barack Obama.
Republicans for years have
bashed Democrats as eager to raise
taxes a theme they will employ
often in next yqar's elections so
they weren't about to agree to a tax
hike unless they also could take
credit for preventing a huge tax
increase scheduled to take effect
in 2013.
Democrats countered that the
supercommittee was created to
reduce the budget deficit, not add
to it by extending tax cuts. Most
Democrats, including Obama, want
to extend the Bush tax cuts only

to individuals making less than
$200,000 a year and married couples
making less than $250,000.
'"We simply could not overcome
the Republican insistence on mak-
ing tax cuts for the wealthiest
Americans permanent," said Sen.
John Kerry, D-Mass., a member
of the supercommittee. 'This was
simply doctrine for some of our
Republican colleagues, even as
many worked very hard in good
faith to find a better way for-
Another member of the super-
committee, Rep. Dave Camp,
R-Mich., said, "It is deeply regret-
table that my Democrat colleagues
could not see their way to address-

ing these much-needed reforms
without at least $1 trillion in job-
killing tax increases on families and
Extending all the Bush tax cuts,
including provisions to spare mil-
lions of middle-class families from
paying the alternative minimum tax,
would add $3.9 trillion to the bud-
get deficit over the next decade,
according to projections by the
nonpartisan Congressional Budget
Office, The Democratic plan would
add about $3.1 trillion to the deficit
over the same period and make
the wealthiest Americans pay about
$800 billion more in taxes.
The supercommittee was formed
to come up with a package that

reduces government borrowing by
at least $1.2 trillion over the next
decade. But with a Wednesday dead-
line approaching, the committee's.
co-chairs conceded failure Monday..
Democrats had said they would
accept significant cuts to benefit pro-
grams like Medicare and Medicaid,
but only if Republicans would
agree to tax increases. Despite
Republicans' aversion to tax increas-
es, a growing number of GOP law-
makers said they would consider-
higher taxes if they were coupled
with significant spending cuts.
Other Republicans, wanted even
more political cover, a guarantee
that all the Bush tax cuts would be
made permanent

earnings rose over the sum-
mer to their highest level in
more than four years, while
the number of troubled banks
fell for the second straight
quarter, federal regulators
reported Tuesday.
The Federal Deposit
Insurance Corp. said the bank-
ing industry, earned $35.3
billion in the July-September
quarter. That's up from $23.8
billion in the same period last
year. More than 60 percent
of banks reported improved
The better earnings and
fewer troubled banks suggest
that the industry is steadily
improving from the depths of
the 2008 financial crisis.
"Bank balance sheets are
stronger in a number of ways,
and the industry is generally
profitable, but the recovery is
by no means complete," said
Martin Gruenberg, FDIC's
acting chairman
The FDIC also said there

were 844 banks on its coni-'
dential "problem" list in the -
quarter, or roughly 11.5 per-.
cent of all federally insured "
banks. .That was down from
865 the April-June period,
which was first quarter in five
years to show a decline.
Banks with assets exceed-
ing $10 billion drove the bulk
of the earnings growth. They
made up 1.4 percent of all
banks but accounted for about
$29.8 billion of the industry's
earnings in the third quarter..'
Those are the larg-
est banks, such as Bank of
America Corp., Citigroup Inc.,
JPMorgan Chase & Co. and'
Wells Fargo & Co. Most of
these banks have recovered "'
with help from federal bailout'
mopey and record-low bor-'
rowing rates.
FDIC officials say the bulk :
of the gains were because
banks, especially credit card "
companies, set aside' less .
money for potential losses.
In the July-September period,
banks put aside $18.6 billion.
Thafs the lowest amount in
four years.

Toy safety report finds some holiday dangers

White High played its worst
football of the season in the
District 3-3A showdown at
Trinity Catholic High. The
Celtics took advantage
of eight turnovers by the
Indians and won, 49-14.
The rematch is 7:30
p.m. Friday in Ocala in the
regional final.
Rather than burn the
tape of the game, Fort
White head coach Demetric
Jackson used it as a teach-
ing tool.
"We looked to learn from
it," Jackson said. "I don't
care who you play, if you
turn the ball over that many
times you are in trouble. You
have to give Trinity Catholic
credit, but we made a lot of
bad decisions."
Fort White fumbled right
out of the chute and Trinity
Catholic scored one minute
into the game. The Celtics
scored on a 40-yard run,
then got ran another fum-
ble runback to the 1. That
Tcore made it 21-0 before
Fort White got started.

Charity basketball event Saturday

Veteran hoops teams
for Lake City, live Oak
tip off for good cause.


A group of more experienced
basketball players from Columbia
and Suwannee counties will suit up
for a good cause.
The second annual Lake City
All-Stars vs. Live Oak All-Stars
charity basketball competition is
Saturday at the Lake City Middle

School gym.
There are two games, with the
women's teams' playing at 6 p.m.
and the men at 7:30 p.m.
Tonya McQuay is the organizer
from Live Oak, and has teamed
with the Lake City Recreation
Department and Richardson
Community Center/Annie Mattox
Park North, Inc.
McQuay envisioned the event
last year when the Pop Warner
teams in Live Oak were preparing
for tournament play.
"Some of the guys needed
money," McQuay said. "We were

walking the track and I said let's
get a basketball team together."
Live Oak supplied both of the.
women's team last year and Lake
City and Live Oak men played in
the second game. McQuay said the
event, which was at the Richardson
Community Center gym, raised
more than $1,000 for Live Oak's
Pop Warner teams.
The agreement was Columbia
County would receive the, proceeds
this year and the counties would
This year's proceeds will go to
Richardson Community Center/

Annie Mattox Park North's USSSA
travel basketball teams.
"Our gym was packed last year,"
Columbia County Recreation
Director Mario Coppock said.
"Because of the turnout we moved
it to Lake City Middle School. The
challenge this year is to have just
as many people as they had from.
Live Oak last year."
Admission to the event is $5,
with no charge for children ages
6 and younger. Columbia High's
girls basketball team will staff a
concession, stand as a fundraiser
for its program.

"It was a great win,"

two preseason games which

didn't think we did that well

did a little better. When we

would be your favorite."
Still, he isn't ruling out

"I think, even though we

are young, we're a veteran

While the coach looks
like a prophet with LSU,
Alabama and Arkansas
holding down the top three
spots in the national rank-7
ings and BCS standings,
their 1-2-3 status sets up
some potentially wacky sce-
The prospects go beyond
a much-talked about LSU-
Alabama rematch. The
eventual national champi-
on could come out of the
Southeastern Conference
and not have won the league
title or. its division crown.

It's not out of the question
that both BCS game partici-
pants were jutst wannabes in
the SEC West as the league
seeks its sixth-straight
national title and third in a
row for that division.
"I think if LSU. and
Alabama win this week,
we're probably at a 90 per-
cent chance that they're
playing each other for a
national championship,"
said Brad Edwards, a BCS
and college football analyst
for ESPN. "That 10 percent
is if LSU loses to Georgia in
such a way that it would dis-
courage voters from keep-
ing them in the top 2."
But if Arkansas beats
LSU and Alabama wins it
sets up a three-way tie in
the SEC West
The tiebreaker will come
down to head-to-head com-
petition between the two

teams ranked highest 'in
the BCS standings. LSU
won at Alabama 9-6 in over-
time three weeks ago; the
Razorbacks fell. 38-14 in
Tuscaloosa in September..
"In order for Arkansas
to win the tiebreaker, I feel
like they're going to have to
do something so impressive
that they end up getting
a lot of first-place votes,"
Edwards said. "A'lot of peo-
ple have to move them over
Alabama and into the No.
I spot
"What they essentially
need is for Alabama to beat
Aubdrn and go backward
in the rankings, which isn't
likely to happen."
But if Arkansas wins this
week .and loses the divi-
sion tiebreaker, Edwards
said the Razorbacks still
wouldn't,necessarily out of
the national title picture.

Couple considering sex must

first explore their feelings

freshman in college and
have the sweetest boy-
friend in the world. We've
always been close and
trusted each other, never
pushing the other too far.
Last weekend, though,
things got a little heavy
between us. We stopped
before anything happened,
but I felt dirty afterward.
As I thought about it, I
realized that, to me, it had
seemed OK that our rela-
tionship was starting to
take a more intimate turn.
Is it wrong for me to
think this way? I don't
know how to bring up the
"sex talk" with him without
seeming desperate or like
I'ri rushing things. What
should I do? NEEDS TO
KNOW: You and your boy-
friend are normal, healthy
young adults. If this is the
first time you and a young
man have gotten "a little
heavy," then it's not surpris-
ing that you felt conflicted,
depending upon how you
were raised to think about
premarital relations.
However, because you
have now progressed to the
point of physical intimacy,
it is important that you and
your boyfriend talk about
last weekend and what may
happen in the future. Share
your feelings and ask how
HE feels about what hap-
pened and what he would

or rushing things that is
** ** **
weeks ago, my wife
returned from a business'
meeting out of town. After
unpacking, she took a bath.
I happened into the bath-
room just as she finished
drying off. When she saw
me, she grabbed a towel
and held it over her shoul-
der and breast, but not
before I spotted a hickey
and bruise on her chest.
When I asked her'about
the hickey, she said she had
no idea what had caused it
After that, she refused to
discuss the matter.
,- Yesterday she agreed
to take a polygraph test,
but how do we go about
arranging one? Your
thoughts? TROUBLED
HUSBAND: If your mar-
riage is on such thin ice
' that you need a lie detector
test to determine if your
wife is telling the truth,

you may need the services
of a family law specialist.
You asked my opinion,
and here it is: From my
perspective, you and your
wife could benefit more
from some truth sessions
with a marriage counselor
than with a polygraph
examiner. However, one
way to find a polygraph
examiner would be to
Google "polygraph exam-
iners in Texas." Another
would be to consult an
attorney about a referral.

And now, Dear
Readers, allow me to
again share the traditional
Thanksgiving Prayer that
was penned by my dear
mother, Pauline Phillips.
No Thanksgiving would be
complete for me without it
Oh, Heavenly Father,
We thank Thee for food
and remember the hungry.
We thank Thee for
health and remember the
We thank Thee for free-
dom and remember the
May these remembranc-
es stir us to service,
That Thy gifts to us may
be used for others. Amen.
Have a safe and happy
Thanksgiving, everyone!
- Love, ABBY

Dennille Folsom, Lake
City-Columbia County
Chamber of Commerce
executive director, said
this year there is no
Festival of Lights attached
to the Snow Day event
(The Festival of Lights is
set for Nov. 26.)
"The entire event will
be in Olu'stee Park in the
courthouse annex parking
lot," she said.."We decided
to move everything down
to Olustee Park to keep
some continuity and hope-
fully create some more
traffic from people seeing
the snow from the road."
This year's event will,
also feature the inaugural
Dashing To The Snow
Reindeer 5K run/walk.i
There is a $25 entry fee
for the event To register

The run/walk will start
8 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 10.
The event will start and
finish at the Columbia
County Courthouse.
"Our goal is to have 125
participants," Folsom said.
'The route is all through
downtown and around
Lake DeSoto."
/The run is scheduled to
be completed by 9 a.m.,
when event organizers
will kick-off the traditional
Snow Day.
'The snow is going to be
in the Courthouse Ahnex
parking lot," Folsom said.
"We're going to have 30
tons of snow."
There will be two snow
slides where attendees
can ride sleds down the
snow, 10 bounce houses,
live entertainment and
at least six food vendors.
Organizers are still accept-
ing food vendor applica-
tions for the event.
Santa Claus is expected
to make his appearance
at the event around 11:45
' "From noon 2 p.m.
we're going to have free
photos with Santa Claus,"
Folsom said.
Santa Claus will make
nightly visits from 6-8
p.m. to Olustee Park from
Nov. 26 -Dec. 23, with
the exception of Sunday
At noon during Snow
Day there will be a
Wreaths Across America

The title sponsor for this
year's Snow Day is Busy
Bee B&B and Gainesville
Busy Bee B&B will be
giving away a 2012 Jeep
SWrangler between 3-4 p.m.
"They've been qualifying
people throughout the year

to win a chance to get a key
to start the Jeep, and they
will give out 25 keys during
Snow Day," Folsom said.
The end of Snow
Day will be capped with
the annual Lake City
Christmas parade which
is slated to begin 6 p.m.,

of the Snow Day event,

area. People hoping to vol-
unteer can call the chain-.
ber of commerce at (386)
"Snow Day is a unique

-experience that most

Folsom said. 'Ifs a very
expensive event and we're
really fortunate that Busy

Ice donated the $10,000
to pull-off the event We
just hope that everybody
will come out, participate
and take advantage of the
