Free dinners offered
to thosein need in
Columbia County.
By LINDA YOUNG
lyoung@lakecityreportercorn
There are two free commu-
nity feasts to choose from in
Lake City today where
everyone is invited.
One is outside in downtown
Olustee Park and the other is
nearby inside the First
Presbyterian Church.
Suwannee Valley Rescue
Mission has sponsored
Thanksgiving Dinner in
Olustee Park for 15 years and
expects to serve a minimum of
200 meals this year, with an
additional 75 delivered to shut-
ins, said Suwannee Valley
Rescue Mission CEO
Cleopatra Steele, pastor of
Miracle Tabernacle Church. ,
The First Presbyterian
Church is in their fifth year of
serving Thanksgiving Dinner
and also expects to serve that
many, including 30 meals to
shut-ins, said Edna Reichert,
member and volunteer coordi-
nator of the Thanksgiving
Dinner.
Although both Steele and
Reichert said many of the peo-
ple they serve are alone, or
don't have family in the area.
Some of the people Steele will
serve dinner to are also
homeless or struggling
financially.
"Quite a few are looking for-
ward to this with the shortages
with the way the economy is
now," Steele said. "I'm finding
more and more people in need
of food. This month so far, we
have served over 3,100 meals."
The rescue mission has
served more than 30,000
meals at their soup kitchen
this year. They have received
donations of food that enabled
them to give boxes of food to
individuals who have a stove at
home but no food and
wanted to have Thanksgiving
at home, Steele said.

Missing child returned safely


Highway Patrol locates
suspect vehicle quickly,
toddler unharmed.
From staff reports
Quick thinking by a Florida Highway
Patrolman led to the safe return of a
missing Columbia County toddler on
Tuesday.
The Lake City Police Department had
issued a Missing Persons bulletin for
23-month-old Kyndall Paige Judy, after


her parents discovered her missing
Tuesday morning. Both parents were
home at the time the girl disappeared.
Parents and authorities believed the
toddler was with her stepsister, 15-year-
old Courtney Nicole Robinson, in the
family's 1999 Ford pickup, which was
also missing.
The teen was on house arrest at the
time and was not licensed to drive the
family vehicle.
Shortly before 3 p.m. Tuesday less
than an hour after the bulletin had been
issued Trooper Michael Jordan


noticed a pickup truck matching the
description in the bulletin headed north-
bound on Interstate 75. He observed the
vehicle going 92 mph in a 70-mph zone.
When the vehicle exited 1-75 onto
U.S. 41/441 at exit 414, Trooper Jordan
observed the driver run a stop sign and
accelerate up to 70 mph in a 45-mph
zone. He pulled the truck over and found
the toddler asleep on the front seat with
no child restraint.
Jordan notified dispatch and the
CHILD continued on 11A


A COMMUNITY AFFAIR


"We're very proud
of Trooper Jordan,
who was cognizant
of the vehicle ... and
was able to stop and
detain the driver as
quickly as he did."
Lt. Mike Burroughs,
Florida Highway Patrol.

She Richardson Senior
'Center in Columbia
County reopened last
week, thanks in part
to the help of
residents and local businesses.
The community center was
damaged in 2004 during the
hurricane season, with most of the
damage being caused by
Hurricane Frances.
Deborah Freeman, executive
director of Columbia County
Senior Services, said that
renovations had already been
planned for the center, and the
damage brought about by the
hurricane sped up the process of
repairs.
Much of the repair-work was
performed by residents of the
county, with local businesses
pitching in to help as well.
"We wanted to paint the walls
and the ceiling, as well as replace
the floor," Freeman said. "Mildred
Fite donated some money for
paint, and we thought we had
enough for the paint we needed.
However, we only had enough for
oil paint when we needed latex
paint."
As a non-profit organization,

did not have the funds required in
the budget to complete the
repairs. Harold Bundy, a friend of
Fite's at Eddie Accardi Chevrolet,
donated money to purchase the
paint and Mark Vann from Brown
Vann donated the paint.
Irv Crowetz, a board member of
the Columbia County Senior
Services, handled most of the
painting duties.
"We couldn't have done this
without the help of the Lake City
Correctional Facility," Freeman
said. "Any time we're moving or
painting or doing any manual
labor, they provide us with help."
Freeman also wanted to
commend Lt. Levon Wynn of the


Lake City Police Department for
allowing the organization to store
equipment with no cost.
"When the center was painted,
we also had gotten a small
business loan to redo the floor,"
Freeman said. "Again, Mark Vann
helped by giving us a good price
on the flooring."
Once.the painting was complete
and floors replaced, the
organization began to move
things back in and brighten up the
place.

time to help us with decorations,

things, to help brighten up the

Hudson

is honored

for service

Local businessman has
served on Columbia County
school board for 30 years.
By LINDA YOUNG
lyoung@lakecityreporter.com
Keith Hudson was recognized by his
peers this week as he entered his 30th
year as a member of the Columbia County
School Board.
Hudson was taken by surprise at the
public accolade, which came between
meetings of the school board Tuesday
evening. He was even more surprised to
see his two sons, Blaine and Ryan, emerge
from the shadows at the rear of the School
District auditorium.
Before the meetings, three of Hudson's
colleagues took a moment to share their
thoughts about him.
"Mr. Keith Hudson was first elected to
the board in 1976," said Mike Millikin,
assistant supervisor for administration.

OPINION


Thursday, November 24, 2005


EDITORIAL


We have

much to be

thankful for

dressing, cranberry sauce
and football games we'll all
experience today, it's also
important to realize the true
meaning of the holiday.
We should all give thanks.
It's not difficult.
Regardless of the current state of our
lives, we all have something for which
to be thankful. We all have it better than
some, probably better than most.
So what is it? Health? Happiness?
Family?
What are life's blessings for which we
are thankful?
We live in a free country with
available bounty like no other in world
history. We live without fear in a free
society that allows us to express our
feelings freely. We can worship how we
choose. We can petition our
government.
We can gripe, whine, nag, belly-ache,
moan, cry and generally complain about
anything. But not today.
Put aside all the negatives and rejoice
in a calm moment of reflection that
focuses on the greatness of life.
Look at everything from the positive
side today and be ever-mindful that
everything we have is a gift of privilege
that all could be gone in an instant.
So spend time with family and
remember that life is good.
Happy Thanksgiving.

Q&A

TODAY'S TOPIC:
What are you most thankful for?


I am most
thankful for health
and family."


so


C O M M E N TARY


There's no reason to give


up hope at the holidays


Thanksgiving and
Christmas are the
most celebrated
days of the year.
The special feast,
the glittering Christmas trees,
beautiful gifts, festive parties
and children's excitement
bring a sense of well-being for
a few weeks.
Unfortunately, many seniors
citizens do not look forward to
this festivity. In fact. | have
heard a number of them say it
_was one of the unhappiest
times of the year.
I can understand why. Many
seniors live alone, separated
from families living miles
away. Some family members
are so busy with their
everyday lives they can't seem
to find time for the older ones
in the family.
However, today there is a
new road for senior citizens.
They do not have to be alone
or isolated. There are many
advantages we did not have
several decades ago. I admit
that the "Golden Years" offer
many challenges, but the past
provides a treasure of wisdom
earned from many trials and
heartaches, and blesses us
with many precious memories
of beautiful years that we have
enjoyed. Life changes and we
have to accept that and learn
to live within the present.
Much depends on our
attitude. It is up to us to take
the high road of patience,
forgiveness, thankfulness and
enjoy a peaceful life, or we can
carry the heavy load of
bitterness, envy and self-pity
and remain in a dark and
unproductive life.
It's the choices we make
that determines the path we
choose, and it has nothing to
do with finances. Wealth does
not provide internal riches;
neither does poverty take it
away.

We need loving, friends and
families arid W~ should be
willing to reach out to them in
a kind and caring way.
No matter how many
problems, how many storms
or failures we have to cope
with, love can lift us out of our
darkest moments. I know. I
lost my daughter and Harry
lost his son to cancer within
one year of each other.
Friends and family
strengthened us and helped
us through those dark weeks.
Not one of us can live a
peaceful and contented life
without that support in our
lives. We may survive, but will
not be living life to its fullest.
Maybe you don't feel up to
change. "I'll stay within my
shell and become more
isolated each day," you tell
yourself. I had a taste of that
when I had implants in both
my knees. I did not want to go
anywhere or see anyone for
several months. Thank
goodness, I finally came to
realize the longer I kept to
myself, the deeper I was
falling into a state I did not
want to be in.
I decided that path was not
for, me and began to join the
real world again. Reaching out
to others was very important
to me and still is. You may feel
you are alone and have no one
to go to. Not so. You can
always find a friend or
neighbor for quiet fellowship.
Most churches have senior


groups that would love to have
us join them. Columbia
County Senior Services is
always there for us. There is
no reason for anyone to be
alone during the holidays. If
we do not drive, the telephone
is a wonderful catalyst for
reaching friends who would
love to be a part of our life.
But that cannot happen if they
do not know. It's also very
important to encourage.,
friendships offered us
Making connections with.
people is about a smile or
hello to a stranger who
appears to be in need of an act
of kindness. People must be
acknowledged as beings who
love and care. You will be
surprised how friends desire
to share other friends' life
challenges and also their joys.
Most important is the
satisfaction we can feel by
sharing those special
momepts with someone.
If we would like to enjoy the
holidays ahead, it's as simple
as making a connection with
friends, family, neighbors, and
other seniors who will ignite
friendships and add richness
to our lives that can make the
holiday merry and your New
Year bright.
Always remember: There is
a Fountain of Youth within
each of us that reigns
eternally. It is our minds, our
talents, and the love and
creativity we can bring to
others' lives, as well as our
own.
And, there is one that will
never forget us, our Creator.
In Psalms 92:14, David said
"those that are planted in the
house of the Lord shall bring
forth fruit in old age; they
shall be fat and flourishing."

CHILD
Continued From 1A

daughter was safe.
"We're very proud of
Trooper Jordan, who was
,cognizant of the vehicle as it
approached him and was
able to stop and defain the
driver as quickly as he did,"
said Lt. Mike Burroughs
with highway patrol.
Robinson was arrested
and charged with two third-
degree felonies child
endangerment/ and false
imprisonment/ She also faces
charges for reckless driving

Gaine'sville and was
returning to Lake City.
She was arrested and
booked at the Columbia
County Jail before being
turned over to juvenile
authorities.
"It's a very sad situation
with a troubled youth, how-
ever we are thankful that the
outcome was a positive one,"
said Burroughs.
"We don't have any knowl-
edge that she was going to
return home and may not
have returned home unless
the trooper made the
encounter when he did."


CENTER
Continued From 1A
place," Freeman said. "It
was an overall good com-
munity effort, and the
seniors are proud of it."
The building, which is
owned by the city, allows the
center to use the building
free of charge.
"If they didn't let us use it
free of charge, we wouldn't
be able to do the repairs or
allow our seniors to have a
nice place to gather,"
Freeman said.

Hudson's Marine with his
sons, Millikin said.
"He's never missed a school
board meeting," said Darlena
Hart, administrative aid to the
school board. "He was on the
board when the board would
meet until 1 a.m. or 2 a.m."
"He has the entire Columbia
County School system at heart
when he makes a decision. He
always puts children first. He's
approachable and he will
always give a sincere listening
ear to your concerns," said
L.C. Bradley, assistant
superintendent for instruction.
Grady Markham, superin-
tendent of schools, had the
honor of recognizing Hudson
for his service and recalled
they first met at McDuffy's
restaurant when Markham was
a member of the school board.
"Almost 30 years ago I met a
young man," Markham said.
He explained that the young
man asked if Markham was
running for school board again

continuous service on the board on Wednesday.


and, when he said he wasn't,
the young man announced he
would run then.
'This young man I was talk-
ing about is now an older man
and he (Hudson) is sitting next
to me," Markham said. "I'm
proud of you, you started in
1976 and you're still going."
After the meeting, Hudson
said during his 30 years as a
school board member, he has
worked with three other
school district superintendents
and now works with Markham.
"I took his place on the
school board and all these
many years later our paths
crossed again," Hudson said.
"It's just ironic that all these


years later we would work
together in administration.
That doesn't happen to many
people."
Reminiscing about when he
first ran for the school board,
he turned toward his sons,
Hudson said, "Actually neither
one of these was born. This
one (Blaine, 28) was nine
months later and this one
(Ryan, 25) was three years
later."
Hudson joked with his sons,
"You want to tell me you love
me."
After more good-natured rib-
bing, both Blaine and Ryan
said those words to their father
in front of the audience.

very good. They have been
very generous with their
donations of the food we're
serving," Steele said.
Steele said most of the food
was donated, much of it by
the Ministerial Alliance,
which is helping for the third
year and also provides many
volunteers.
On the menu are
30 turkeys 10 fried,
10 smoked and 10 roasted -
six hams, collard greens, can-
died yams, potato salad,
string beans, mixed vegeta-
bles, cranberry sauce, dress-
ing, rice pilaf, gravy and "plen-
ty of cakes and pies of all
sorts and ice tea," Steele said.
The people who are home-
less that eat at the soup
kitchen are excited about the
Thanksgiving meal, that runs
from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Those
hours are convenient because
the people who come to eat
can plan to have seconds and
it still allows volunteers to
spend time at home with their
families, Steele said.
If it rains, tables will be set
up a few blocks north in Lad's
Soup Kitchen at 127 N.W.
Escambia St., Steele said
"I have so many that stay in
the woods. They come up to
eat," Steele said. "All of these
people are not homeless. A lot
of them have a room and no
stove, or no food or they don't
want to be alone."
Some of the people who
volunteer at Olustee Park


don't want to be alone on
Thanksgiving Day either.
Helping people who were
alone was the motivation for
the Mission Board of the
Presbyterian Church to start
hosting a free community
Thanksgiving Day dinner five
years ago, Reichert said.
"We felt that we needed to
reach out. With the communi-
ty, a lot of people don't go
home or have anybody to eat
with. So, we just wanted to
reach out to the community
and cook for them," Reichert
said.
"I expect around
200 because it has increased
every year and we're getting
to have a good reputation
about having a great
Thanksgiving Day dinner,"
Reichert said.
On the menu are seven
roasted turkeys, dressing,
sweet and mashed potatoes,
green beans, cranberry
sauce, rolls, carrot cake and
pumpkin pie, she said.
'"This is strictly for the com-
munity and no charge,"
Reichert said, adding that she
and the other volunteers have
a fun doing it. "I really love to
cook. The more the better."
The Olustee Park Dinner is
off U.S. 90 at Marion Avenue.
The First Presbyterian
Church is located at 697 S.W.
Baya Drive, with the parking
lot off U.S. 90 across from the
'Dollar General and Subway
Store.

Kids come

first at

Memorial
The Memorial
Bowl is
definitely about
the football, but
it's also about
something else: The kids
who play the game. And to
that end, the Lake
City/Columbia Parks and
Recreation Department and
Columbia Youth Football
Association (CYFA) have
put their best feet forward
to ensure the kids get the
most form this experience
as they can.
Changing the format to
include all local teams from
each city and not just
sending all-stars to the
Memorial Bowl was an
inspired decision. As Parks
and Recreation Department
Athletic Director Mario
Coppock said in the Sunday
edition of the Lake City
Reporter, having
210 children and 11 local
teams involved in the event
is far better than letting just
the 50 best players and two
be-t teams conipete. It keeps
the s-eas.on ali'.e for all of the
-kids, and puts the best and -.
worst on equal footing as.
they compete for the title.
That change also keeps
interest in the community
high, as all parents are
involved in the Memorial
Bowl, and not only those few
who had their children
selected to the all-star teams.
In another tweak,
Coppock said next year's
Memorial Bowl will take
place in the city where the
Midget and Junior Midget
champions play. That means
all the teams will have
opportunities to travel to
new places, including the
Lake City squads. And of
course, as we all know,
children love to travel to
new and exciting places.
Coppock said the
response to all of the
changes has been so great
that he has heard from
people in other areas that
did inot have teams
represented in this season's
Memorial Bowl who would
like to send their teams next
year.
Coppock also related a
story about goodwill and
sportsmanship that, as
much as the football, stands
for what the Memorial Bowl
is all about.
The Madison County
Midget League coach had
an unexpected death in his
family last week that would
have prevented him from
coaching his team's
semifinal game against
Quincy. But the Eagles team
agreed to travel to Madison
County rather than Lake
City to play the game
anyways. Quincy won 21-14,
but the Eagles already had
their victory long before the
outcome was decided.
"It shows the willingness
of the people from Quincy
and our department to try
and pull this thing together
and try and make it a
success in spite of those
dire circumstances like a
death in a coach's family,"
Coppock said.
And again, it puts the
interests of the players
involved above everything
else. And isn't that really
what it's all about?

seeks

artists for

contest
From staff reports

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is seek-
ing talented artists to partici-
pate in the 15th annual
Manatee Decal Art Contest.
The winning artwork will
become the design for the
2005-06 state manatee decal
and sold at county tax collec-
tors' offices to benefit manatee
research and protection
programs.
The contest is open to all
middle school and high school
students who attend public,
private or home schools in
Florida. This year is the first
time high school students are
eligible to enter.
The FWC is accepting art-
work postmarked between

communities. The wildlife
agency recently relocated
dozens of birds from areas
that have excess birds to parts
of the state with critically
small populations.
FWC biologists said the
process, called translocation,
is a powerful tool for conserv-
ing red-cockaded woodpeck-
ers, which the state classifies
as a "species of special con-
cern." Their populations, once
practically continuous across
the state, are now isolated
clusters.
Translocating woodpeckers
is a delicate procedure.
Biologists must identify young
birds at a donor site, find a
suitable habitat on the recipi-
ent site, and then create
homes by inserting nest boxes
into living pine trees to create
artificial cavities.
FWC began translocating
red-cockaded woodpeckers
more than five years ago as
part of the Southern Range
Translocation Cooperative
(SRTC), a group of private,
state and federal partners
from Florida, Mississippi,
Alabama and Georgia that are
collaborating to help the
species recover. In August,
SRTC selected 10 areas in
Florida to receive breeding
pairs. FWC began moving
birds to public lands in
mid-October.
Wildlife conservation
authorities met at Tall
Timbers Research Station
near Tallahassee Monday to
map a plan to reverse a 25-year
decline in Florida's bobwhite
quail population.
According to the Northern
Bobwhite Conservation
Initiative (NBCI), Florida's


quail population has dropped
between 3 and 5 percent each
year for a total decrease of 70
percent since 1980.
Experts say that is merely a
symptom of a much bigger
problem '- loss of quality
habitat.
Where hunters in Florida
were once harvesting around
2.5 million quail annually dur-
ing the 1960s, they are now
taking in fewer than a
quarter-million.

the NFL's head of labor
relations.
The players union said in a
statement that it was disap-
pointed with the decision,
which it believes ignores the
contract's limits on team disci-
pline. "We are confident that
we put in a winning case at the
hearing last Friday," the state-
ment said, "and we still believe
Terrell Owens had a right to a
legitimate reinstatement."
Owens was suspended Nov.
5 after he again criticized quar-
terback Donovan McNabb,
called the organization "class-
less" and fought with former
teammate Hugh Douglas, who
serves as team "ambassador."

Two days later, the Eagles
extended the suspension to
four games and told Owens
not to return. The reigning
conference champions are 0-3
without Owens and 4-6 overall,
last in the NFC East.
Owens has five years
remaining on a seven-year,
$48.97 million contract that he
signed when he came to
Philadelphia in March 2004.
His problems started when he
demanded a new contract after
an outstanding season in
which he caught 77 passes for
1,200 yards and 14 touch-
downs, helping the Eagles
reach the Super Bowl.

GRATIFIED.

We have weathered another incredible hurricane season,
though many of us are still reeling from Hurricane Wilma's destructive power.
We have seen an incredible force of nature, but we have also witnessed
another awesome force-the powerful strength of people coming together.


In the hard days after Wilma, we've witnessed people helping one another.
We've seen individuals coming together in selfless cooperation. We've watched
our communities embody the spirit of caring. And so, we want to express our sincere
appreciation to all the people who have helped us through this crisis.



TO OUR CUSTOMERS You have patiently accepted many difficulties in our stores brought on by
unusual circumstances. You have been thoughtful and considerate interacting with other customers and our associates.
And you have generously contributed to help others victimized by this-and many other-storms, by donating what you
can at our registers. For your kindness, your compassion, and your enduring good spirit, we thank you.

TO OUR ASSOCIATES Before Wilma hit, you worked hard to prepare our stores. And after the storm, you worked
even harder to repair and replenish Publix stores, often in spite of your own property diia e and other hardships.
For your tireless focus on serving our customers, and your family's support and understanding during this trying time,
we thank you all.

TO OUR SUPPLIERS AND BROKERS You have been there with us, side-by-side, working to replenish our store
shelves to meet customer demand. You have been there for us, laboring to meet our every request for products, making.
special deliveries, and responding to our needs in the field. For your priceless contribution to our recovery, we thank you.

TO OUR UTILITIES PROVIDERS, EMERGENCY SERVICES, RELIEF AGENCIES AND VOLUNTEERS
Y6u have worked day and night to help clear roads, protect property, and restore power. You have aided the injured and
saved lives. For your prompt response after Wilma's disruption and devastation, for your selfless sharing of time,
for embodying the spirit of teamwork, we thank you.


We will never forget all that each of you has done for one another, for our
communities, and for us. We mourn the devastation of any hurricane, but we
celebrate our communities' survival. We applaud the tremendous spirit of the
neighborhoods where we live and work. We are thankful to be so blessed.

The new plant, which would be located on 22 acres near SE Giles Martin Ave. roughly one mile southeast of the existing facil-ity, would serve as a replacement to the 40-year-old original located near the intersection of I-75 and US 441. “The longevity expectancy for a plant like this is about 20 to 25 years,” Operations Manager Kevin Kirby said. “It has extreme-ly outlived its shelf life to the point of disrepair.” However, Columbia County Operations Manager Kirby sent a memo explaining that funding for the estimated cost of construc-tion wasn’t entirely present as of Nov. 7. “The county has approximately $539,563 available through State Revolving Funds (LP 6025),” Kirby’s memo reads. “The cost for replacement is estimated at $750,000 leaving a deficit of $210,437. To proceed with replace-ment of the plant, an additional funding source of $210,437 will need to be identified.” The proposed replacement facility would initially operate at a 0.015 Is trackthe next big thingin sportstourism?By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe Columbia County Tourist Development Council is considering the possibility of making Columbia County a center for youth track and field in much the same way it has become a hub for baseball and softball. Bill Jones, owner of Habitat Investors, made a 20-minute presenta-tion at the TDC meeting Wednesday where he pro-moted an idea of hosting youth invitational and poten-tially regional high school track and field events at the Columbia High School football stadiums, track and field area. Jones said the move would have to be approved by school officials and approximately $1.4M worth of improvements and reno-vations made at the local high school track and field. Jones said his children participate in cross-coun-try events and he thinks Columbia High School could be a suitable venue if the changes where made and an agreement could be reached for use of the facil-ity. The $1,430,000 worth of improvements Jones spoke of included approxi-mately $1,240,000 for physical improvements and equipment purchases and $190,000 for aesthetics. He said he the figures came from an architect in another Businessman says it can vie with softball for tourism dollars.Fun on FridaybeforefootballBy AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comH ayrides and bounce hous-es, science experiments and photo booths — the Friday evening Pinemount Palooza festival offers Columbia County an eve-ning of wholesome, family fun before the football game. Held at Pinemount Elementary School, the festival lasts from 4 to 7 p.m. Parents can enter free, but children’s arm-bands cost $10 for an unlimited evening of fun activities. Food and tick-ets for raffle items— two bikes and a stocking stuffed with toys — are not included in the admis-sion price. The event supports the elementary school by pro-viding funding to teach-ers and students after the school experienced a recent budget cut, said PTO president Sarah Sandlin. “The whole community is invited to come out and enjoy,” Sandlin said. “The weather is supposed to be nice. We’re excited to have a night of fun with friends and family.” This is Pinemount’s first year holding the Palooza, but they already have an evening packed with entertain-ment. As guests arrive, Pinemount’s cupstackers will entertain by speed-stacking pyramids of cups around 5:15 p.m. After they finish, Pinemount teacher Jeremy Striebel “The Science Guy” will wow the audience with nitrogen-based science experiments at approxi-mately 5:45 p.m., and at 6:15 p.m. magician Brandon Chapman will perform card tricks. The drawing for the two chil-dren’s bikes and stocking of toys will take place at 6:45 p.m. “It’s fun, it’s entertaining, but there’s learning as well,” Sandlin said. “We think a lot of our Pinemount family will Pinemount Palooza set for 4-7 p.m. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterLibrary’s Fort White branch is...branching outPatti Street, manager of the Columbia County Public Library Fort White branch, is seen next to a catalog of hundreds of vegetable, herb and flower seeds. ‘This is just a nother way the library can play another role in the com munity,’ she said. ‘People who might not garden might try no w.

Putnam pushing for a statewide water policy By JIM TURNERThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE — Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam continues to push for lawmakers to remember that South Florida isn’t the only part of the state where water quality and quantity have become dire issues. “There is an extraordinary bias to the south at the expense of the springs and Apalachicola Bay,” Putnam told reporters in the Capitol this week. As the Florida Legislature is being asked to consider a $220 million pack-age to redirect water and reduce pol-lutants flowing from Lake Okeechobee, Putnam wants lawmakers to consider other issues. That includes the chal-lenges of pollutants entering the state’s springs, the St. Johns River and Tampa Bay, reducing pollution entering Lake Okeechobee from the north and the declining conditions of Apalachicola Bay in the Panhandle. Columbia County Commissioner Ron Williams applauded Putnam’s push. “We may not be the biggest populated area, but our quality of life depends on the quantity and quality of the water sources in our region,” he said. “It’s just as important to protect these resources in North Central Florida as it is in South Florida.” Florida has filed a federal lawsuit against Georgia about a shortage of freshwater flowing into Apalachicola Bay. Florida argues that heavy water consump-tion in the metro Atlanta area has reduced downstream flows into the bay, endangering Apalachicola’s oyster industry. “If the Everglades were suffering from inadequate freshwater flows coming from Georgia, the whole state would have a level of interest, and a level of decibels, much higher than what they seem to have for Franklin County, and that’s not right,” Putnam said. Putnam addressed his concerns about the need for a statewide water-manage-ment plan in October to members of the House and Senate. The appearances before House and Senate committees came before the Senate Select Committee on Indian River Lagoon and Lake Okeechobee Basin pro-posed a $220 million package that stems from pollutants being discharged from the lake into waterways such as the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee rivers. The Senate’s package includes a wide range of projects, such as $90 million that would be spread over three years to bridge a 2.6-mile section of the Tamiami Trail west of Miami.

BET wants the lawsuit dismissed, con-tending Mattocks hasn’t raised any valid legal claims. Mattocks says one measure of her page’s value was the 7.7 million “likes” it amassed by summer 2012. BET counters that the number of “likes” are not grounds for her to win damages in the lawsuit. A preliminary scheduling hearing on the case is set for Thursday in federal court in Fort Lauderdale. According to BET, “The Game” is a show that “fol-lows the lives of profes-sional football players and their significant others as they navigate game, family and friends.” It has been renewed for a seventh sea-son in 2014.Miami hotel seeks digital dancer MIAMI — Hotel managers are holding auditions to find a new dancer’s silhouette to groove on a 19-story digital display. The InterContinental Miami debuted the digital dancer last year as part of a $30 million renovation. The downtown Miami hotel will hold auditions Thursday to find a new dancer to light up the city’s nighttime skyline. General manager Robert Hill tells The Miami Herald that the woman currently dancing provocatively on the hotel exterior “was meant to represent Miami.” “It’s urban, it’s fresh yet at the same time it’s a little bit edgy,” Hill said. The identity of the woman behind the current image isn’t known. David Schwartz, media producer for technology design firm Fresh Juice Global, worked on the project with an animator in Shanghai and said the dancer was a Russian woman who per-formed in China. Hill says the hotel now wants to feature local per-formers — male or female — from a variety of dance genres. Miami City Ballet principal dancer Jeanette Delgado will help judge the auditions. She said judges will have to choose dancers whose movements exemplify Miami and fit into a vertical space.Radel pleads guilty to cocaine WASHINGTON — Florida Republican Rep. Henry “Trey” Radel pleaded guilty Wednesday to a misdemeanor charge of cocaine possession and was sentenced to a year’s probation. “I’ve hit a bottom where I realize I need help,” Radel told a judge in acknowledging that he purchased 3.5 grams of cocaine from an under-cover police officer. As part of a plea agreement Radel acknowl-edged he agreed to buy the cocaine for $250 in a Washington, D.C., neigh-borhood on Oct. 29. After the undercover officer gave Radel the drugs federal agents confronted him, court documents show. Radel agreed to talk with the agents and invited them to his apartment, where he also retrieved a vial of cocaine he had in the home, the documents said. The charges against Radel were made public Tuesday, and Radel said in a statement then that he struggles with alcoholism and will seek treatment and counseling. Snow White, Prince Charming expectingNEW YORK T he fairy tale continues for Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas of ABC’s “Once Upon a Time.” The actors, who play Snow White and Prince Charming on the TV drama, are expecting their first child together. Goodwin’s representative confirmed the news, first reported by People magazine Wednesday. No other details were available. Goodwin, 35, stars in the National Geographic movie “Killing Kennedy.”Rolling Stones announce 2014 Australia date The Rolling Stones are headed to Australia, and they’re taking Mick Taylor along. The enduring rock ‘n’ roll favorites announced Tuesday they’ll be play-ing a gig March 22 at the Adelaide Oval. They haven’t played in Australia since 2006. A news release says ex-member Taylor will be a spe-cial guest for the concert. The date is the latest on the 50 and Counting tour, a celebration of the five decades Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts have been together. Ronnie Wood joined in the ‘70s. The tour began last November. The Stones will be the first entertainment event at the Oval, a sports field that’s undergone a refurbish-ment. It’s been nearly two decades since the band visited Adelaide, leading Richards to say, “It’s been awhile, right?” in a promo video.Wade turning fatherhood story into sitcom MIAMI — Dwyane Wade is taking his story of fatherhood to television, looking for some laughs. The Miami Heat guard has sold a sitcom to Fox, through Sony Pictures Television — and oddly enough, it’s the story of an NBA star who gets full custody of his two young sons. With a working title of “Three The Hard Way,” it’s the first television project announced by Wade’s ZZ Productions, a company that bears the initials of his sons’ first names. “I will be involved,” Wade said. “I’ll be very involved.” Many details have not been announced, including who will play Wade in the show. “Haven’t figured that out yet,” Wade said. “But I’m sure it’ll be somebody very handsome.”Diane Disney Miller, Walt Disney’s daughter, dies NAPA — Diane Disney Miller, Walt Disney’s daughter and one of his inspirations for building the Disneyland theme park, has died at her Northern California home. She was 79. Her death Tuesday in Napa was confirmed by The Walt Disney Co. The cause was complications from a fall, said Andi Wang, spokeswoman for the Walt Disney Family Museum. “As the beloved daughter of Walt Disney and one of his inspirations for creating Disneyland, she holds a special place in the history of The Walt Disney Co. and in the hearts of fans everywhere,” Robert A. Iger, the company’s president and CEO, said in a statement. “She will be remembered for her grace and gen-erosity and tireless work to preserve her father’s legacy.” Wednesday: Afternoon: 2-9-4 Wednesday: Afternoon: 4-6-2-5 Tuesday: 12-16-17-26-33 Correction The Lake City Reporter corrects errors of fact in news items.

Everglades Foundation have called the highway one of the most promi nent dams blocking the natural flow of the River of Grass from the lake to the southern Everglades. Putnam said he would increase focus on the northern Everglades and areas north of Lake Okeechobee. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers discharges water from the lake to ease pressure on a dike that surrounds the massive water body. If you can slow the water down from getting into the lake, or treat it before it gets in to the lake, then youre having an impact on what the potential harm is to the dike and what the storage capacity of the lake is, Putnam said. The departments bud get proposal for the 2013 session includes $10 mil lion to address nutrient reduction practices and water retention efforts in the Lake Okeechobee watershed, $8.2 million for best management practices in the northern Everglades, and $5.2 mil lion to reduce agricultural nutrients from reaching the states northern fresh water springs. The Department of Environmental Protection has included in its bud get proposals $75 million that Gov. Rick Scott has proposed for Everglades restoration efforts, $40 million for environmental land acquisition, and $15 million for springs resto ration, up from the $10 million designated during the 2013 session. The proposals are being considered by Scott, who will offer a budget plan before the 2014 legislative session. MGD (million gallons per day)less than the existing facility running at 0.02115 MGD. The new plant will be slightly smaller in capacity than the existing facility but would be designed in such a way as to allow for additional treatment units to be installed in the future as flows increase, an Oct. 15 scope-of-services agreement with ARCADIS says. Specific improvements include: A new lift station; Approximately 8,000 ft. of force main; A new 0.015 MGD pre-engineered package treatment system; New rapid infiltration basins; Provisions for a portable back-up emer gency generator. ARCADIS US, Inc. is a division of a 125year-old Dutch engineering company that specializes in infrastructure, water, envi ronment and building projects. Should commissioners find a fund ing source and decide to move forward, ARCADIS would provide engineering ser vices during the design, permitting and bidding processes, as well as construction management. County staff estimates construction on the new facility could be completed in roughly seven months. Commissioners will discuss the funding deficit and other county issues today at 5:30 p.m. at the Columbia County School Board Administrative Complex. state based on retail costs, but hes been told the proj ect could be done for less money. Jones said the invitation al events would be for ath letes aged 6 18 years old and several of the events could be two-day affairs. Jones also noted that some Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) and United States Track Association (USTA) events could also be held at the facility. These are competi tions that we can attract, Jones said. We feel we can attract these events because UF stopped offer ing it for youngsters and USF is now charging. Jones said the facil ity could also host Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) regional competitions and combined with the invita tionals, the site could host 40 events annually. Dennille Decker, Lake City Columbia County Chamber of Commerce executive director, voiced her support for the pro posed project. We feel this would cer tainly add to the communi ty and what we have here, she said at the meeting. Decker said Columbia County is attempting to become Floridas healthi est county and highlight ed the Get Fit Lake City initiative and that many residents said unless they have a membership with a local gym they have no place to exercise. She said this venue could offer the locale for residents to focus on their fitness. This seems like a winwin for our community, she said. Scarlet Frisina, who served as the meetings chairman, said her child also competes in track and field and shes attended a few events in other areas and noted how many peo ple were in a attendance. We have nowhere in Columbia County to do anything like this except Columbia High School or Fort White High School and we need so much more, she said. I defi nitely think there would be support in the community for this. Jones gave statistics from the cross-county event that was recently held at the Alligator Lake Public Recreation Area, the 2013 Alligator Invitational, and said there was 136 athletes that rented rooms in the local hotels for the event. Jones also noted once the improvements are made, other events such as middle school track and field events, paralympics, Special Olympics, band competitions, JROTC drill contests, soccer, 7-on-7 football camps, pee wee football and even movie nights for the community could be held at the site. He said the current facility can hold no such events because upgrades need to be made. You have a single use facility. With what Im pro moting here today youre going to end up with a $7 million facility thats a multi-use facility, Jones said. The TDC Board did not make a recommendation on whether to support the project, but asked Jones to return at a later date so more questions could be asked about the proposal. Its an interesting con cept, said Nick Patel, TDC member following Jones presentation. The board needs to look into it and study it and come up with some funding to get this done.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Obamacare: A state of chaos Hoping 2012 was exception for highway deaths T raffic deaths rose 1,082 last year to 33,561, a 3.3 percent increase over the previous year. In itself this is not an alarming statistic but it is worri-some in that it reflects the first increase since 2005. With the exception of that year, traffic deaths have been falling annually since 1950, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Traffic officials think the annual decrease in fatali-ties will be shown to have resumed when this year is out. One hopes they’re right. A look at the numbers shows that the fatalities are almost certainly related to the changing ways people have of getting around. Most of the increase -72 percent -involved motorcyclists and pedestrians and came in the first quarter of the year when the weather is at its worst and there is less daylight. Bicyclist deaths rose 6.5 percent. One doesn’t have to look far for the causes. Motorcycle rider fatalities were up 7.1 percent, increasing for the third straight year. Ten times as many riders died not wearing hel-mets in states without helmet laws than in states with universal helmet laws. Deaths in crashes involving drunk drivers increased 4.6 per-cent to 10,332, and most of those involved drivers who had blood alcohol levels of about twice the legal limit. For whatever reason, motorists are inclined not to use seat belts at night. Almost two-thirds of those who died in nighttime crashes were not wearing seat belts. NHTSA says more than 3,000 people are killed in crashes they would have survived had they been wearing a seat belt. NHTSA is pushing technology to make driving safer -devices that prevent drunks from start-ing their cars; crash avoidance monitors to alert drivers of impending hazards; and warning devices to prevent rear-end col-lisions. Still, the solutions to fewer highway deaths remain simple: seat belts, sobriety and common sense. Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service. Dale McFeattersmcfeattersd@shns.com Single-payer health insurance a singularly bad idea T he progressives’ sin-gle-payer solution to Obamacare won’t work any better than the pres-ident’s delay of policy cancelations, but there are some ideas that should be pursued. As Americans left and right were losing insurance policies because of the Affordable Care Act, some progressives reiterated a plan that would make things worse. In imita-tion of a slew of European and other countries, they want the United States to adopt a so-called single-payer system in which insurance companies go hang and the govern-ment funds all of health care. It’s not that they dislike all of the Obama health law or even that they are entirely wrong about some of the problems we’ve had in health care delivery. They are right that our health costs are too high and that we’ve long needed to insure people struggling without success to get insurance for both bodily and financial self-protection. It’s still gibberish that micromanaging, all-controlling, hubristic Obamacare or single-payer models in Europe and elsewhere are the solution. While Obamacare pluses exist, the minuses we have seen so far are nothing compared to what we will very likely see in lost jobs, spiraling premiums for the non-subsidized, governmental overspending, fewer doctors, crippled hospitals and millions still without insurance at the end of the day. And, not so inci-dentally, none of this was set right by the president’s illegal pretense of supposedly doing something meaningful about insurance policy cancelations. His pledge was that insurance companies can forget Obamacare standards for a year so that people might keep their old policies. Excuse me, but he is obliged under the Constitution to execute the laws, not rewrite them solo. It is true that presidents are given flex-ibility in putting them into effect, but there was three years prepara-tion for this and a temporary delay likely creates more problems than it solves, assuming it truly creates a delay. What we have here is pure politics to prevent Congress from substantive reshaping of Obama’s pride and joy and a further dan-gerous step into executive branch autocracy. The single-payer alternative for one and all is also more razzle-daz-zle than realistic remedy. Experts from various think tanks have shown it actually can have such bad effects as reducing the qual-ity of care. Among their points is that it leads to long waits for care, often affecting the elderly most of all. One critic argues it only saves money through rationing Americans would not like a bit, and large majorities in some countries with single-payer systems don’t like the extensive controls much, either, as polls show. That’s one reason many of those countries have been allow-ing far more private insurance and care than in the past. Of course, if you don’t do the rationing, you have runaway costs with single-payer systems. Our own federal Medicare and Medicaid pro-grams are already in deep trouble, and, without reform, will be unsus-tainable over the long run. Make Obamacare essentially another version of Medicare (or even leave it alone) and there might be no ark that can save us from the flood of red ink of the sort now drowning so many European welfare states. Many progressives note we Americans have shorter lives on average than in those welfare states, but that’s more likely because of acci-dents, homicides, lifestyles and genet-ic inheritance than anything having to do with health care. One expert notes that 90 percent of U.S. adults report themselves as healthy, which is higher than in any other country in the world, and when you look at such a major matter as treating cancer, you find no one does it better. I am not saying all is rosy or that it is enough for Republicans to just keep kicking the Democratic deed of Obamacare. They need to focus on such possible answers as vouch-ers for catastrophic coverage, health savings accounts, curbing malprac-tice suits on a state level, encourag-ing imitation of some first-class clin-ics and promoting interstate health insurance competition. And, if they get a chance, they need to address such matters one small, prudent step at a time, not with a leap into a vast unknown that then reveals itself with unending pain. P resident Barack Obama’s temporary fix to his health care law doesn’t really fix much at all. In fact, it will certainly lead to more chaos and may very well result in higher premiums for all consumers. Obama last week declared that millions of Americans who received cancellation notices because of provisions in his health care law will now be allowed to renew those policies, provided their insurance companies and state insurance regulators agree. Insurers and some regulators, who according to The New York Times were not consulted in advance of Obama’s announcement, immediately reacted with dire warnings. “This decision continues different rules for different policies and threatens to undermine the new market and may lead to higher premiums and market disrup-tion in 2014 and beyond,” said Jim Donelon, Louisiana’s insurance regulator. His frustration is understandable. The industry has been preparing for the law for years and has been implementing new plans that comply with its provi-sions. But this is what happens when a president with an exclusionary management style boxes himself into a corner with flawed legislation and empty promises. Obama was right to honor his promise to let all Americans keep their existing policies. In fact, he had no choice politically as insurgents within his own party were threatening to support Republican legislation that undermines the entire health care law. However tempting the law’s collapse may sound, that’s not what is needed now, as indicated by the insurance industry’s reaction to this temporary fix. The law’s implementation is too far down the road to pull the plug entirely, as Republicans are so eager to do. Instead, the industry, the administration and the country are left to hope that enough people who are young and healthy, and who were either uninsured or satisfied with cheaper policies that offered substandard coverage, will participate in the new insurance market-place and provide insurers with the premiums needed to cover the more robust policies Obamacare dictates. After all, the problem isn’t that some people lost their policies. Discarding substandard policies that don’t provide adequate coverage is not necessarily a bad thing, considering many of the millions getting cancel-lations can find better coverage at better prices on the exchanges. No, the problem was that Obama sold his plan on a false promise that they would not lose their policies.... Obamacare has at its core a noble premise: affordable and good health care for all Americans. Its requirements that pre-existing conditions be covered, and its provision that parents be allowed to keep their children on their plans until their mid-20s, are proving beneficial and popular. The subsidized policies it offers can help the poor and keep them from seeking more costly emergency room treatment. Once the full rollout has occurred next year, and the full consequences are known, the public will have a better sense of where fixes are needed, or whether the entire law needs to be jettisoned. After that, Congress can act accordingly.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2013 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-04246A BIG SHOTS IN BRANFORDFrom staff reportsBRANFORD— The Branford Camera Club hosted their 2nd Annual Photo Show on Friday, Nov. 15, at Cuzin’s Restaurant in Branford. There was a fantastic variety of subjects with over 110 entries on display and exam-ples of several different photographic techniques, include HDR (high density resolution) and some photo-shop creations. The images on display also included black and white photos, panoramic views, nature/animal photos, and people subjects. Photographs cap-tured moods from serious to contemplative to whimsi-cal — almost anything you can imagine. The members who participated had a really great time, and guests were impressed by the local talent represented by the images displayed. There were entries from members who are new to photogra-phy, from amateurs and advanced amateurs, and from several professional photographers. By the end of set up, we actually ran out of room to display all the photos what were entered, but we made sure everyone had the opportunity to have their work shown. Needless to say, we’re already making plans for an even bigger and bet-ter show for next year, so watch for the announce-ment coming up. Photos courtesy ROB WOLFE and SKIP WEIGELMacy Hunter, granddaughter of Janis Hunter, points excitedl y at a photo on the display board. The Camera Club’s photo show had over 100 entries. Jack and Kay Noda look through photography on display at the Branford Camera Club’s annual photo show. COURTESYRocky Dreibrodt (from left), of Corbin Turf’s Ornamental Supply, presents Mike Crawford with his award for being named the Georgia Golf Course Superintendent of the year. Corbin Turf’s Ornamental Supply is the sponsor of the a ward. Crawford selected as Superintendent of Year in GeorgiaFrom staff reportsFlorida Gateway College alumnus Mike Crawford has been named the Georgia Golf Course Superintendents Association Superintendent of the Year. Crawford, the director of golf course operations at Georgia’s TPC Sugarloaf and a 1990 graduate of then Lake City Community College, was honored with the award during the association’s annual banquet at the Atlanta Athletic Club earlier this month. Crawford has been at TPC Sugarloaf for 18 years.Nominations are made by others in the industry, and a finalist from those nominees is selected by the association’s board of directors, Crawford said. When attending the banquet on November 4, Crawford said he was unaware that he had been nominated for the award, much less the selected winner. But when he entered the room and saw his wife, daughter, and co-workers, he knew something was up. “It’s a very special award,” he said. “In the state, there are some very good golf courses and some very good golf course superintendents. And the list of people who have won this award before, it’s like a who’s who of superintendents in our state. To be included in that list, it’s a really special honor and means a lot to me.” The fact that the award nominees are voted on by peers in the industry makes it even more special, Crawford said. Crawford came to Lake City in 1987 by way of Iowa. He had completed three years of college already, but found that he wasn’t in love with his future profession. After working on a golf course one summer, he changed his major and enrolled at Iowa State University, though he quickly found out much of his future studies involved corn and soybeans. “That just really wasn’t what I was looking for,” h e said. By chance, a friend of his mother’s had a connection in Lake City and told Crawford about Lake City Community College. While he couldn’t enroll immediately for that semester, Crawford packed his bags and moved to Florida, where he worked on a golf course in South Florida until he was able to enroll. Crawford graduated in 1990 and went to work at the Atlanta Athletic Club for Ken Mangum, another FGC alumnus and the college’s 2012 Alumnus of the Year. A few years later, Crawford was called on to manage TPC Sugarloaf and became the golf course’s first employee. Crawford credits FGC with giving him a firm foundation that helped him get to where he is today. “The education that I received there was fantastic, and the people there running the program have made it what it is today,” he said. “There isn’t a thing I would change in my career, and I’m very grateful for the opportunities that I’ve had thanks to my education.” Nomination and selection was surprise to former Lake City resident. From staff reportsColumbia Correctional Institution Warden Monroe Barnes joked that when he agreed to the chal-lenge of jumping into the prison pond to encourage blood donors, he candidly thought his chances of get-ting wet were slim. Beating Suwannee C.I. in the number of blood dona-tions at this year’s blood drive was all Columbia had to do for Barnes, Col. Ben Godwin, Maj. Carlos Norman and Maj. Laurie Owens to jump in the pond. Tuesday, a dripping wet Barnes grinned big, with three of his soaked and chilled officers at his side. “Today we fulfilled our bet,” Barnes said. “Every-body had to step up.” On paper, Suwannee looked to have the edge. The two prisons chal-lenged each other to see which could have the most donors. In August the two had tied at 87 donations each, but on Oct. 1, 2 and 3, Suwannee pulled in 123 donations, far above Columbia’s typical drive. LifeSouth Donor Recruiter Tony Hudson said Columbia took the challenge seriously. “It was like a war room in there trying to figure out how to beat Suwannee,” Hudson said. And by the time the bloodmobile rolled away on the third day of the blood drive, Columbia totaled 139 and the offi-cers’ fate was sealed. With the sun shining bright on the 62-degree Tuesday afternoon, prison staff gathered by the wood-en hand-painted sign that pointed to “pond jump” to see the action. There was no tip-toeing, but a running plunge and quick exit, as the four gathered for photos. “I think I’m going to need a penicillin shot,” Godwin joked, as he wiped the brown pond scum from his shorts. A chilly reward for blood donorsJoin us for Old Tyme Farm DaysFrom staff reportsThe Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park is the perfect place to enjoy a Thanksgiving Dinner without all the stress.

Head coach Brian Allen won’t let the Tigers look ahead with the Bartram Trail High Bears coming in winners of six-straight contest. The Tigers have a 9-1 record, while the Bears have a 6-5 mark. Still, Allen knows that the Bears are a fierce foe after facing off against Bartram Trail in each of the last two years in playoff contests. Allen feels that the Bears are fully capable of knocking off the Tigers if Columbia looks ahead. “I know we feel that way for sure,” Allen said. “I said it last week about them against Ed White. They’re a good football team and a well-coached football team. They have been through the tenure of Darrell Sutherland. It’s the same thing as St. Augustine, because the kids believe what they’re doing. You throw those records out.” The Bears will come in looking for revenge, but Allen said the thought of revenge will only help before the first whistle. “It doesn’t have much to (do with the game),” Allen said. “At this point in the season, you’re trying to go out and play your best foot-ball. That determines the victor. That’s what I expect out of them this week.” Bartram Trail is a versatile team with led by dual-threat quarterback P.J. Blazejowski. Allen only gave high marks to the signal caller. “He’s a tough little nut,” Allen said. “I remember being in college and after the game you go to dif-ferent guys and say you could play with us. You could play at Florida State. He’s one of those kids that you say could play here. He’s not super big in stature, but his play on the field looks like he plays with a ton of heart. He is a kid that could play in this program from what you see from him on tape. He gives 100 percent of what his frame gives. He gives every bit of it. He’s a dual-threat kid. He has the ability to run the ball and is an efficient passer as well. They come out in the spread and try to establish the run, but he can make the throws from what I’ve seen as well.” David Coleman leads the Bears in rushing with 1,127 yards on the season to go with 11 touchdowns on the ground. He’s a different style from Nick Urburu that the Tigers have faced in the past. “Urburu was more of an option guy,” Allen said. “They had dual-threats with him and (Dillon) Ragusa. They both played the slot position and did different things with them. I don’t see that type of kid on film this year. There’s defi-nitely nobody with Urburu’s speed. As far as looking at them, nobody jumps out as far as a show-stopper. They’re just working their butts off every week.” The winner of Columbia and Bartram Trail will take on the win-ner of Choctawatchee and Navarre high schools next Friday. Should Columbia and Choctawhatchee both win, Columbia would host a second playoff game. The Tigers would travel to Navarre for a second-straight season in the third round if both Columbia and Navarre win. Playoff tickets for this week’s game are on sale are today and Friday at McDuffie Marine & Sporting Goods. Reserved tickets are $9 and general admission tick-ets $8.

Tigers chilled by Chiles, 4-0By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comThe weather was cold and Columbia High’s soccer team couldn’t get warmed up in a 4-0 loss to Chiles High at the Columbia Youth Soccer Association fields on Wednesday. Chiles scored two goals in the first half and added another two goals in the second half for the 4-0 final. “It wasn’t for a lack of effort,” Columbia head coach Trevor Tyler said. “We played with a lot of effort — a lot of effort. We only had 13 kids tonight, so we were down to two subs.” Darren Brock came close to putting the Tigers on the board in the final seconds of the game with a shot that went off the crossbar, but Columbia was held scoreless. The junior varsity played to a 1-1 tie. The Tigers (1-3) will host Gainesville High at 7 p.m. on Friday. Columbia High back in action at home on Friday.

For the MGA 3-on-3 tournament on Saturday, the course was set up to play to par-54. The threesome of Bruce Ford, Charlie Timmons and Mike Carr finished their round at 42 for a one-stroke win over two teams tied at 43. The trio of Jordan Hale, Bud Johnson and Eli Witt took the runner-up spot with a scorecard decision over the team of Steve Thomas, Pet Skantos and Luther Hoffman. A.J. Lavin (+8) put his best game on display to take the Sunday blitz by two points over Mickey Wilcox. Mike Gough was in third place with +4, one point up on Steve Patterson in fourth place. Terry Hunter and Dell Sanders shared fifth place at +2. Closest to the pin winners were Ken Radcliffe on No. 7, Timmy Rogers on No. 15 and Bob Randall on No. 17. In a complete turnaround from a record number of 12 skins two weeks ago, only one keeper stayed on the board. That was just fine with Gough who pocketed a triple-digit payoff for his lone winner. Scores in the A flight of Wednesday’s blitz looked like they were posted by the X flight. Buddy Slay (+2) had the day’s only plus score to pick up the win. Bob Randall (0) was in second place, a point better than Mike Gough, Jerry West and Steve Patterson in a three-way tie for third. Except for a fine round by Mike Jacobs (+8), scores in the B flight were little bet-ter. Keith Shaw (+1) and Mickey Wilcox (0) trailed the winner. Jordan Hale, Jonathan Allen, Moore, Gough and West shared the skins pot. Pot holes carried over. The LGA tested the ladies with a straight for-ward low net format.

The Johnson & Wales University Jr. Open at the Amelia River Golf Course in Amelia Island was Saturday and Sunday with more than 100 junior golfers compet-ing in four age divisions.

Carter shot her bestever two rounds, but had to scramble for the win. Holding a one-shot lead on the last hole, Carter hit a bad drive to the right and over a ditch. She hit a pitch shot to 15 feet and drained the putt. Danford missed an 8-foot birdie putt to tie. Winners in all divisions received an invitation to the 2013 Tour Championship.

Scott, Kuchar favored at World CupAssociated PressMELBOURNE, Australia — On current form and on a very familiar golf course, the two top-ranked players in the World Cup — Adam Scott and Matt Kuchar — are heavy favorites for individual honors when play begins today at Royal Melbourne. The second-ranked Scott has won two tour-naments in a row — the Australian PGA and the Australian Masters, which was held last week at Royal Melbourne. Seventh-ranked Kuchar led by two strokes late in the final round of the Masters before a dou-ble-bogey on 18 enabled Scott to successfully defend his title. Kuchar finished second. “He has been in such good form,” Kuchar said of Scott on Wednesday. “To at least give him a run it was awfully good. I stood five back going into Sunday. Unfortunately I got a bad break on 18 and that’s part of golf.”

DEAR ABBY: I love my husband very much. Until the last few years there have never been any prob-lems in our 20-year mar-riage. I have depression and epilepsy, and I am on five different medications for them. Sometimes when I have come out of a seizure, I have found that my clothes have been removed and my husband is “touching” me. Also, because the medication puts me into a deep sleep at night, I have half-awakened to him hav-ing sex with me. I am so groggy I can’t respond. Is this right? I feel like I have been violated, but I haven’t said anything to him. This causes me to cringe most of the time when he touch-es me now. I’d like to get back to a normal love life, but I can’t get over what he does to me when I’m not fully aware. How do I tell him I know what he has been doing without ruining my marriage? — FEELING VIOLATED IN RIO RANCHO, N.M. DEAR FEELING VIOLATED: You feel violated because what your husband is doing is called spousal rape, and it’s a criminal offense. Having sex with someone who is so doped up she (or he) can’t give consent is a sexual assault. Tell your husband you know what he has been doing, how you feel about it and that you would prefer that the two of you make love while you are wide awake and able to fully enjoy it. This should be discussed with a marriage counselor and, if necessary, the police. DEAR ABBY: I’m a married father of two very young children (2 and 6 months). I have excessive student loan debt that is making my life extremely tough, and between that, day care and my mort-gage, I’m on the brink of bankruptcy. My mother is extremely wealthy. She is very involved with my family and we both do things to help each other out. I mow the grass in her large yard every week. She sees me struggling, yet she makes no offer to help financially. I am becoming resentful about it. If she helped, it would not change her lifestyle at all. My wife’s family is the opposite. Her parents aren’t wealthy, but they have done everything within their power to help their children. I know how I will treat MY kids. Am I wrong to feel resentment because my mother has decided differently? Or should I just “grow up”? — FRUSTRATED IN NORTH CAROLINA DEAR FRUSTRATED: If you have discussed with your mother that you are under extreme financial pressure and she has refused to help, then I can see why you might feel some resentment. My question is, HAVE you talked to her about it? That would be the “grown-up” thing to do. The worst she can say is no. If she does, what you will need to do is take a part-time job to help with the bills – even if it means you mow your mother’s lawn less often. DEAR ABBY: Next month will be our 25th anniversary. My wife and I are permanently sepa-rated, but will not divorce because she would lose health coverage under my employer’s plan. How do I acknowledge this “landmark” -or should I just ignore it, since it isn’t really a celebratory event? — NOT QUITE AN EX IN THE SOUTH DEAR NOT QUITE AN EX: If you and your wife are on speaking terms, call her and say something nice. Or send her a card. If you’re not on friendly terms, then diplomatically ignore the landmark. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): A change in your living arrangements must be made with caution. Protect your possessions from theft, loss or damage. A problem with someone you work with must be averted before it escalates into a problem that cannot be fixed. ++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Get together with friends or colleagues who share your concerns and interests. Forming a part-nership for either personal or professional reasons will complement what you are trying to accomplish. A romantic evening will leave you feeling optimistic. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may be willing to take a chance, but before you jump in, question your motives as well as the rea-son why others are taking part. Uncertainty coupled with misinformation is apparent, and caution must be taken to avoid loss. +++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Let your feelings be known. The more you share, the greater a response you will receive. Love is on the rise, along with closing deals, making promises and getting what you want. Enjoy the moment and reach for the stars. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Wait and watch. It’s not up to you to interfere with what others want to do. Go about your business and make personal changes that will help you excel in an area that suits your needs and future prospects. Put your-self first. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Strive for satisfaction and reaching your personal goals. Set your destination and include the people you enjoy spending time with most. Personal achieve-ments will be reached, and self-improvement projects will make you feel good. A romantic encounter is in the stars. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t feel forced to make a decision if you are uncertain. Problems in your personal life due to overin-dulgence will lead to worry. Setting a budget or rules to live by will help you feel confident enough to make a choice. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Make your way to the winner’s circle. Trust in your ability and go full-tilt toward your goals. Ask and you will receive. Set plans for a special outing with someone you love and it will bring you closer together. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t meddle or exaggerate. Work on personal progress, not on trying to improve oth-ers. Change is good, but only if it benefits everyone involved. Proceed with cau-tion and do your best to control your temper. Treat loved ones with respect. You cannot buy love. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Hone your skills and show everyone what you’ve got to offer. Your intense drive and desire to get things done will raise your profile, giving you a better chance to advance. Romance is heightened. Enjoy the one you love. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Put your money into something that shows growth potential. Avoid joint ventures or relying on hear-say for guidance in the right direction. Fact-finding, cou-pled with the wherewithal to adapt to change, will lead to victory. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): You are in control and can advance personally, professionally and financially if you trust your intuition. Contracts are favored, along with partner-ing with someone who has benefited you in the past. Romance is in the stars. +++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Green as he drives down the field. Quarterback still in question for Florida By JASON LIESER Associated Press GAINESVILLE Florida might have to rely on its third-string quarterback for the second week in a row. The Gators expect to start red-shirt freshman Skyler Mornhinweg in Saturdays home game against Georgia Southern, a team from the FCS. Mornhinweg made his debut last week when Tyler Murphy was out with an injury to his throwing shoulder. Murphy, who sprained his acromioclavicular joint, took over for original start er Jeff Driskel in Week 3. Murphy was unable to prac tice last week and is unsure when hell return. Due to the uncertainty, Florida is working under the assump tion that Mornhinweg will start. If we had to play today, yeah, that would be the plan moving forward, Gators coach Will Muschamp said Monday. Tyler did some light throwing yesterday, felt comfortable. Not ready for him to practice today. Well see how far he pro gresses. When you have the situ ation that he has, discom fort is a huge issue in the throwing shoulder. So if he says, I just dont feel com fortable throwing, then hes not going to play. Florida (4-6) relied heav ily on its running game dur ing Mornhinwegs debut at No. 11 South Carolina last week. The Gators rushed 41 times for 200 yards and asked Mornhinweg to drop back for just 13 passes. He completed 10 of 13 for 107 yards and had an intercep tion in the final minutes. Mornhinweg said he would prefer to throw more, but was fine with Floridas strategy. Im confident in my abili ties and Im confident in the coaches game plan, he said Monday. Whatever they want to run out there, well execute it and I think well have a shot to win. The Gators are opti mistic that Murphy could return by Saturday or for next weeks regular-season finale against No. 2 Florida State. He struggled to throw last week due to the pain in his shoulder and was ruled out a day or two before the game. The injury affected his velocity and accuracy. It wasnt coming out pretty, he said. Since replacing Driskel in Week 3, Murphy has completed 60.5 percent of his attempts and averaged 135.1 passing yards per game.
