Fort Campbell officials said
at the time that the suspect,
arrested shortly after the
shooting, had a handgun that
was not issued by the
military. The suspect's name
mwas not released at the time.
Mikel, of DeBary, joined
the Army in October 2003,
said Fort Campbell
spokeswoman Cathy





Gramling. She declined to
comment on a possible
motive for the shooting.
"That would be
speculation, and we can't
speculate on the case," she
Mikel faces 42 counts of
premeditated attempted
murder and four of attempted
murder, Fort Campbell said.
He faces other charges,
including larceny for the
alleged theft of a government
laptop computer and failure
to obey an order by
wrongfully possessing and
failing to register a privately
owned weapon.
Soldiers living in barracks
at Fort Campbell are allowed
to have private weapons, but
the guns must be registered
and stored in their units'
arms rooms, Gramling said.

nears hurricane strength,
forecasters said.
The 26th named storm of
the busiest hurricane season
was not expected to hit
Bermuda or any other land,
according to forecasters at
the National Hurricane
Center in Miami.
At 4 p.m. EST, Epsilon's
top sustained winds had
strengthened to about
70 mph, up from 50 mph
earlier in the day. It would
become the 14th hurricane of
the season if its winds reach
74 mph.
It was centered about
650 miles east-southeast of
Bermuda and about
1,650 miles west-southwest of
the Azores Islands.
Forecasters said Epsilon was
moving south near 7 mph in a
loop, but it's expected to
eventually turn to the north
or northeast.

AI-Arian judge
denies mistrial
TAMPA - As jurors in the
terrorism conspiracy trial of
former University of South
Florida professor Sami
Al-Arian deliberated for a ninth
day Wednesday, the judge
denied a defense motion for a
mistrial filed last week.
The motion by attorneys for
Al-Arian and three
co-defendants stemmed from
jurors inadvertently seeing the
results of a reader's poll print-
ed in the Tampa Tribune Nov.
17. The poll showed that 87
percent of the readers who
responded thought the jury
would convict Al-Arian of
being a key figure in the
Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
Although the poll was not
cut out of newspapers
provided to jurors as other
articles about the trial have,
been, U.S. District Judge
James S. Moody Jr. said in an
order that he didn't think the
exposure "created unfair
prejudice" to the defendants.

College professor helps save money

for wastewater treatment centers


When it comes to treating
wastewater, innovation saves
"We helped the Live Oak
Wastewater Treatment Facility
to reduce their electrical
consumption," said Lake City
Community College (LCCC)
Associate Professor of Biology
Dr. John Rowe. 'They were
able to remove $28,000
(annually) from their budget."
Rowe said at the Live Oak
facility "we did this by chang-
ing the bacterial population
from one type of bacteria to
Similarly, Lake City
Wastewater Facilities staff
report they were able to save
$25,000 a year.
"These days and times, you
have to look at alternative
.processes just because of the
costs of power, fuel, it's
basically the more innovative
and technologically advanced
processes are more economi-
cal," said Lake City
Wastewater Facilities Director
Dave Clanton.
. Although both the Live Oak
and the Lake City wastewater

Wastewater Facilities director

treatment plants saved money
by making changes to the way
they process sewer water,
they took slightly different
Rowe said, "We changed
their (Live Oak) digestion
process from aerobic to
Aerobic means oxygen is
present and and anaerobic
means no oxygen is present.
About 99 percent of waste-
water is water and the remain-
ing 1 percent is solid sludge,
which is then placed into what
is called a digester at a waste-
water plant where it can be
broken down in one of two
ways, Rowe said.
"One way would be to add
air to it and then, of course,
those bacteria would digest
the waste material. And then
another process is where you
take air away from the
digester, and that would be

anaerobic and then that group
of bacteria will more complete-
ly break down the bacteria,"
Rowe said.
"Now the drawback to the
anaerobic process is it
requires a higher temperature
than does the aerobic process.
And so what we did here at
(LCCC) is we blended some
more cold-tolerant bacteria to
add to the digester at Live
Oak," Rowe said.
"For that we won the
National Council for Public-
Private Partnerships (NCPPP)
2005 Award. You can see by
turning off the input of air you
save that electrical cost. And
they've done something very
similar here in Lake City also,"
Rowe said.
But the Lake City
Wastewater plant uses a com-
bination process, Clanton
"We're adding a special

bacterial enzyme to the
sludge. You have the aerobic
process near the surface and
the anaerobic process is near
the. bottom, and then in
between is what they call the
facultative process. And that's
an aerobic/anaerobic process.
It's a combination of both,"
Clanton said.
"It was a process we wanted
to try on an interim basis and
the University of Florida came
up and did a study," Clanton
said. "I took a look at power
and chemicals, even looking at
transportation fees, and man-
power and it shows that we're
actually saving about $25,000 a
year compared to the aerobic
Before receiving the
2005 award, LCCC '. had
received an award from
NCPPP in 2003 for a program
that offers continuing educa-
tion credits for employees at
wastewater plant personnel.
"We're very proud of it,"
LCCC Public Information
Officer Sonja Yarbrough said.
"The (NCPPP) council tells us
- and we researched that -
we are the only college that has
won an award from them twice
so we're very proud of that."

Progress is

needed by


The city's Wastewater
'Advisory Committee has
planned a meeting for
Wednesday night at City
Hall to update the public on
several studies that have been ongoing
by the group for the past few months.
What this talk boils down to is this:
Supposedly we will hear the options the
group has decided are the best
scenarios for improving Lake City's
already near-capacity wastewater
treatment plant.
The sewer plant. The plant that treats
effluent and the one officials fear will
overflow with the next flush of a toilet
in the city.
The committee was formed several
months ago because input from all
sectors of business and development, as
well as government, were asked to
contribute ideas. Then, the committee
met a couple of times, decided to study
the matter and vanished.
We hope this group has been diligent
behind the scenes. We will know for
sure when the plan is unveiled
What we don't need from this group
is a harmonizing collection of
tongue-wagging that creates more
background noise and the need to have
still another meeting.
The sewer committee could freshen
the air by moving forward.
City residents are affected by this
nagging problem.
So are county residents.
So is the environment and the
precious Floridan Aquifer.
Show signs of life. Take action. Move

Ways to make you talk

A bu Ghraib was a
travesty and a
tragedy. It tar-
nished America's
credibility. It gave ammunition
to America's enemies and
critics. It set back progress in
What took place at Abu
Ghraib was illegal - and
those responsible have been
rightly prosecuted and
So what is the point of Sen.
John McCain's amendment to
.ban "cruel, inhuman, or
degrading" treatment of any '
prisoner by any agent of the
United States?
His proposal might be seen
as simply sending a message,
a way to clean up the mess left
by Abu Ghraib - legislation
in the service of public
The problem is the
amendment fails to distinguish
between two very distinct
situations: (1) ordinary
prisoners being detained as
punishment for crimes or
simply to keep them from
returning to the battlefield,
and (2) captured terrorists in
possession of information that
could save lives.
In regard to the first
situation, McCain is correct.
Such prisoners should never
be abused - certainly not for
amusement or to indulge
sadistic impulses (as,
nevertheless, happens in
prisons around the world).
The second situation is not
so simple. The most notorious
scenario is, of course, the
"ticking time bomb." What
should be permissible when a
threat is imminent and
making a suspect talk can
mean the difference between
life and death? Such
circumstances are not as rare
as some contend.
For example, two years ago,
there was controversy over
the actions taken by Army Lt.
Col. Allen B. West. He was



Clifford D. May

serving near Tikrit,,fighting
insurgents loyal to deposed
dictator Saddam Hussein.
While interrogating a hostile
suspect, he drew his pistol
and fired it, twice.
" 'His intention was-not to kill
or wound, only to frighten. He
succeeded: The' uspect '
revealed details of a planned
ambush. West saved the lives
of men he commanded, men
for whom he felt responsible.
For that, he was accused of
"torture," charged with
assault and drummed out of
the military.
The McCain amendment
would confirm that outcome.
It would mandate that other
officers in similar situations
walk away, and if that means
innocent men, women and
children are slaughtered, so
be it.
Should that really be our
policy? Can a war can be
fought and won with such
limitations? Is that really the
moral approach?
Put those questions aside
for a moment and consider
the more common scenario:
the "high-value suspect,"
someone in possession of
information not about an
imminent threat but about
how, for example, terrorist
leaders communicate their
orders, how they raise funds
and distribute weapons, how
they recruit, train and deploy
suicide bombers and those
who plant explosives along
Instilling a moment of fear,
as West did, would be unlike-
ly to get such suspects to
reveal all they know. And

more severe forms of "tor-
ture" - already illegal under
U.S. law - would probably
not be the best way to induce
them to cooperate. What can
succeed are interrogation
techniques short of torture:
physical "stress" coupled with
psychological "duress." But
such techniques may be seen
as "degrading" and so might
be outlawed by the McCain
Clearly, lines need to be
drawn and someone must
have both the expertise and
authority to draw them..More, ,
than a year ago, former,.- rj,, .s

expert Andrew C. McCarthy
proposed the establishment
of a "national-security court,"

are permissible and effective.

What the court would
license for use against a

differ from what it would

The key decisions would
not fall on the shoulders of
an isolated Army officer in
the field - no soldier should,

Families often follow their

hearts when choosing charities

AP Business Writer

NEW YORK - More than
20 years ago, Donna and
Robert Considine decided
they wanted to focus their
charitable giving on some-
thing that was meaningful to
both of them.
She was a fan of entertainer
Danny Thomas and became
interested in the St. Jude
Children's Research Hospital
he helped found in Memphis,
Tenn. The hospital, which
provides free care for chil-
dren with catastrophic illness-
es, also resonated with her
husband, she said, because
his mother had considered St.
Jude to be her patron saint.
At first the Niantic, Conn.,

groups that focus on animal
welfare, the arts, the environ-
ment, education, religious
causes or community issues.
Many people aren't sure
about the best way to choose
among the thousands of
charitable and nonprofit

Philanthropy experts say
people should follow their
hearts in giving. They also say
that targeted giving like that
of the Considines can help
charitable groups because it
provides a predictable stream
of income so they can plan
long-term projects.

"Unlike the stock market,
you really shouldn't be diversi-
fying your giving," said Sandra
Miniutti, spokeswoman for
Charity Navigator, a nonprofit
group based in Mahwah, NJ.,
that evaluates philanthropic
groups. "It's best if you stick
with a charity over time, make
a commitment for the long
Donors also should check
out the charitable and non-
profit groups they want to sup-
port to make sure they're
spending their money wisely,
she added.
Sites like w'ww.charitynav
igatororg, and
www.guidestar org provide
background information and
ratings on thousands of chari-
ties. Another option is to go to
a charity's Web site and check
its IRS Form 990, which
should include a breakdown
of its spending, Miniutti said.
Miniutti said well-run phil-
anthropic groups generally
spend at least 75 percent of
their budgets on program
activities, with the balance
going to operating expenses
and fund raising.

Company recalls items containing lead

Associated Press

California company is volun-
tarily recalling about 6 million
children's necklaces and zip-
per pulls that pose a serious
risk of lead poisoning, the
Consumer Product Safety
Commission said Wednesday.
The painted metal jewelry
contains high amounts of lead,
which can be toxic if swal-
lowed. There have been no
reports of incidents or injuries
associated with the Chinese-
made jewelry sold by the
Stravina Operating Co. of
Chatsworth, Calif.
"Any time we find items
with lead in them, we take a
special interest," Consumer
Product Safety Commission
chairman Hal Stratton told a
news conference.
Studies have found that
even small amounts of lead
ingested by children can cause
neurological damage, or
behavior and learning
The government in
February set an acceptable

level for lead in children's jew-
elry sold mainly at discount
stores and from vending
machines. Concerns over lead
resulted last year in the largest
toy recall in U.S. history -
150. million pieces of jewelry
by. four importers. The four
supplied nearly all vending
machine jewelry.
The CPSC announced the
latest recall after Stravina
alerted it that the two products
contained lead, commission
spokeswoman Julie Vallese
said. Company officials did not
return two telephone calls'
seeking comment.
The recalled necklaces are
silver-colored with individual
names painted in a variety of
colors attached to a 16-inch
cord. The necklace packaging
reads "Personalized Necklace"
and "Stravina." The packaging
is marked with UPC code
The recalled zipper pulls
include nameplates similar to
those on the necklaces but
hang from a silver-colored
metal clip designed to attach to
backpacks, key rings or zip-
pers. The packaging reads

Vera Adams, Executive. Director of TradeEnforcement and
Facilitation at Customs and Border Protection, stands with a group
of counterfeit products and toys that represent a danger to public
safety and may violate intellectual property rights during a
news conference in Washington on Wednesday.

"Personalized Zipper Pull,"
"Great for Backpacks and
Keyrings too" and "Stravina."
The packaging is marked with
UPC code 0-35203-00038-0.
The jewelry was sold
through discount, party,

grocery and drug stores from
March 2002 through
September. Retail prices
varied between $2 and $4.

Judge nixes settlement in BlackBerry patent case

AP Business Writer

RICHMOND, Va. - A fed-
eral judge ruled invalid
Wednesday a $450 million set-
tlement between a small
patent holding firm and the
maker of BlackBerry e-mail
devices, Research in Motion
- The ruling by U.S. District
Judge James R. Spencer is a
victory for NTP Inc., an
Arlington company that
contends the technology
behind the popular
BlackBerry infringes on its
Canada's RIM had sought
to uphold the settlement,
which was reached earlier
this year. NTP argued that it
was never finalized.
As expected, Spencer also
denied RIM's request to delay
the case while awaiting word
from the U.S. Patent and
Trademark Office, which is

re-examining NTP's patents.
The patent office has prelimi-
narily rejected the patents at
the core of the lawsuit.
Spencer's decisions raise
more uncertainties for
BlackBerry users in the
United States, where most of
the company's 3.65 million
customers are based. The
judge could next consider
re-issuing an injunction that
threatens to shut down
BlackBerry service in this
However, analysts and
industry observers expect
RIM could be backed into a
corner and forced to settle for
a sum as high as $1 billion.
"It was pretty much as pre-
dicted, and it indicates that
Judge Spencer is going to
move swiftly to conclude the
case," said James H. Wallace
Jr., an attorney for NTP. "We
would hope that these devel-
opments would bring the par-
ties back to the table to

resolve this matter."
When asked whether U.S.
BlackBerry users might see
an end to their service,
Wallace remarked that RIM
officials "own the keys to their'
own jail."
An attorney for RIM did not
immediately return a
telephone message.
The Nasdaq market halted
trading of BlackBerry's
shares just before the ruling
was made public. The stock's
price rose 36 cents to
$65.28 before the halt.

Spencer said he would be
communicating with both par-
ties to set up a hearing date
and briefing schedule "on the
remaining issues of injunctive
relief and appropriate
The judge has grown impa-
tient with the long-running
patent case.
During a Nov. 9 hearing, he
said that he had spent enough
of his "time and life involved
with NTP and RIM." On
'Wednesday, he expressed
similar frustration.

More detailed, interactive

military simulators touted

Associated Press

ORLANDO - The five sol-
diers in a Humvee barreled
through the Iraqi desert "fight-
ing" insurgents, machine guns
blazing, smoke wafting
They had backup - four
other Humvee teams and a hel-
icopter. And when the
battle was over, they were back
inside the Orlando Convention
The computer-simulated bat-
tle using realistic mockups and
equipment is an example of
new technology that
several defense companies put
on display this week at the
Training, Simulation and
Education Conference. The
gathering is billed as the
largest military security and
conference in the world.
The interactive system using
different kinds of guns and
technology was a partnership
between simulation companies
Raydon Corp. and MPRI Inc.,
which is intended to provide a
realistic environment' for
soldiers to train for combat. It
allows several to practice on
the same mission in real-time
using computer systems that
simulate actual military vehi-
cles with real-world limitations.
The real guns, which use

conference in the world, ends Friday.

half-strength blanks designed
to fire inside, even jam, and
won't fire if the bullet belt get
too entangled by the turret
The virtual convoy system
also features real-life
depictions of Iraqi cities like
Baghdad and Tikrit.
"Before everybody ever gets
into country, they can have the
experience of being there,"
said Mike Riley, Raydon's vice
president of training and

logistics. "These roads are not
made up. They're really there."
The systems are also
designed to tell soldiers where
bullets hit, how to differentiate
a fake explosive device from a
real one and how, logistically,
to fight out of a moving
military vehicle.
"How do you hold your
weapon in there when you've
got other equipment?" said
William Feyk, vice president of
simulations for MPRI. "How do

you fight out of these? It's
The conference featured
more than 400 exhibits from
around the globe, all with their
own computer simulation
troop-training systems.
Lockheed Martin Corp. also
boasted a trainer that will allow
users 360-degree action on the
simulated battlefield, along
with more detailed and
realistic scenarios soldiers are
likely to encounter.

Police response for child

abductions goes national

AP Legal Affairs Writer

- -

FORT MYERS - A Florida
plan for quick, coordinated
police response to child abduc-
tions - developed after the
2004 killing of 11-year-old
Carlie Brucia - is being taken
nationwide, state and federal
law enforcement officials said
The state's Child Abduction
Response Teams program,
devised by the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement, will be used as a
model for training of law
enforcement personnel around
the country beginning in
January, U.S. Department of
Justice and FDLE officials said.
"We're taking something
that exists that has been very,
very successful," said Cybele
Daley, acting assistant attorney
general for the Office of Justice
Programs, an arm of the
Justice Department.
The CART concept is to put
together regional law enforce-
ment resources - from blood-
hounds to helicopters to foren-
sics experts ---- in advance so
they can be deployed rapidly
once a child is reported
abducted. Since the initial team
was created by FDLE in
Orlando in early 2005, CART
has been activated 13 times in
Florida, with 11 successful
child recoveries. "
"We're in synch before we
arrive at the scene," said FDLE
Commissioner Guy Tunnell..

n a time when insurance companies are leaving the
state of Florida, The Wheeler Agency is pleased to
announce the addition of the Hanover Insurance
Company to its carefully selected group of companies.
Since 1852, Hanover has been one of the most trusted
names in the business of insurance - protecting
America's homes, automobiles, boats and businesses.
If you have not checked your insurance rates in a while,
now may be the time to call 752-8660.


"In a missing child case, time is
of the essence."
Daley, Tunnell and other
officials made the announce-
ment at'he FDLE operations
center in Fort Myers, where a
regional CART training
session took place. Among
those making presentations
were Don and Claudine Ryce,
parents of 9-year-old Jimmy
Ryce, who in 1995 was abduct-
ed at gunpoint from outside his
home in rural Miami-Dade
County, sexually
assaulted and murdered.
Claudine Ryce said that her
son was alive for more than
four hours after he was abduct-
ed and was found less than a
mile from the family's home.
"If we'd had CART in place,
Jimmy would have been
found," she told officers at the
training seminar. "He needed
us to get to him in time. That's
what CART does."
The session' came as jurors
in Sarasota continued to hear
testimony in the penalty phase
of the case against Joseph
Smith, who was convicted
Nov. 17 of kidnapping, sexual
battery and first-degree mur-
der in the Carlie Brucia case.
Her slaying has also triggered
state and federal legislation
intended to crack down on
probation violators.
Florida this year had its
share of tragic child abduc-
tions, notably those of 9-year-
old Jessica Lunsford in Citrus
County and 13-year-old Sarah
Lunde in Hillsborough County.

President Bush

talks tough, but

is he setting up

troop reduction?

Associated Press
President Bush came as
close as he ever has to
admitting mistakes on Iraq
Wednesday, acknowledging
setbacks and uneven results
in the training of Iraqi
troops in his latest defense
of the war 21/2 years after he
first declared victory.
And while he vowed U.S.
troops would not
be withdrawn to
satisfy "artificial ANAl
timetables set by
politicians in
Washington," his Naval
Academy speech in
Annapolis, Md., could help
set the stage for,a reduction
in troops next year.
That's because Bush
emphasized progress, if ini-
tially halting, in the training
of Iraqi troops who will one
day replace U.S. forces. Any
U.S. reduction, the presi-
dent said, will be driven by
"the conditions on the
ground in Iraq and the good
judgment of our
Democratic critics

Bush's speech, and an
accompanying 35-page doc-
ument entitled "National
Strategy for Victory in Iraq,"
broke no new . ground,


mostly restating administra-
, tion aims put forth in 2003.
Bush "once again missed
an opportunity to lay out a
real strategy for success in
Iraq that will bring our
troops safely home," said
Senate Minority Leader
Harry Reid, D-Nev.
But Bush's speech, the
first of several he's expected
to make in the run-up to Dec.
15 elections to seat a perma-
nent Iraqi government,
appeared to reflect

and to more closely define
the nature of the enemy.
"I think he's ;shc penned his
,language y a, lot, today.
Obviously, things haven't
been flowing in his direction
lately," said Frederick
Barton, an Iraq specialist at
the Center for Strategic and
International Studies.
Barton said that Bush's
intended audience, besides
the military, the broader
American public and Iraqi
voters, included members of
Congress who have grown
increasingly skeptical of the
Iraq mission - including
"reluctant members of his
own party" who sit on com-
mittees with jurisdiction over-
seeing defense spending.

able to decrease our troop
level in Iraq without losing
our capability to defeat the ter-
rorists," Bush told a support-
ive audience at the U.S. Naval
Academy. 'These decisions
about troop levels will be driv-
en by the conditions on the
ground in Iraq and the good
judgment of our commanders,
not by artificial timetables set,
by politicians in Washington."
Bush's emphasis on the
readiness of Iraqi security
forces came at a time when
continued violence in Iraq and
the death of more than 2,000
U.S. troops have contributed
to a sharp drop in the presi-
dent's popularity.
Even before Bush finished
speaking, Senate Minority
Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.,
claimed that the president
"recycled his tired rhetoric of
'stay the course' and once
again missed an opportunity
to lay out a real strategy for
success in Iraq that will bring
our troops safely home."
House Democratic leader
Nancy Pelosi embraced a call
by a prominent defense hawk
in her party to immediately
begin a withdrawal. Two
weeks ago, Rep. John Murtha,
D-Pa., set off a firestorm when
he said a complete pullout

ing," Pelosi said Wednesday.

court press of information

With lawmakers and oth-
ers calling for a more sober
assessment of the situation
in Iraq, Bush acknowledged
setbacks in the training of
Iraqi forces. He recalled a

Legislators Smith and Stansel

honored for service to Columbia

tbritt@lakecityreporter., com

State Rep. Dwight Stansel,
D-Wellborn, and State Sen.
Rod Smith, D-Gainesville,
have been honored for their
legislative work for Columbia
County and its residents.
Wednesday afternoon dur-
ing the Columbia County pub-
lic legislative delegation hear-
ing, Dale Williams, county
manager, read a resolution
signed by each county com-
missioner thanking Smith
and Stansel for their efforts to
benefit the county and its
Smith said it felt wonderful
to be honored by the county

commissioners in his last
public legislative hearing
scheduled for Columbia
"I'm very happy with that,"
he said. "I love this communi-
ty and they've been very good
to me for many, many years
and I look forward to continu-
ing to work with them, but
we're certainly leaving them
in great hands."
The meeting was the last
legislative delegation hearing
for Stansel and Smith in
Columbia County, as Rep.
Stansel, terms-out in Nov..
2006 and so will Rod Smith,
who is running for governor.
Stansel said he was hon-
ored to receive the

"It's a great honor and one
that I appreciate," he said. "I
took this job with the under-
standing that I was going to
do the best I could and I feel
like I have. I feel like I did
things the county can be
proud of and I did it in a way
the county can be proud of
and I haven't jeopardized this
district or this county's
integrity to do the things that
we've done for the county.
Columbia County, and all the
counties in north Florida,
they really help themselves
- they just need a little seed
money and some efforts put
forth on local legislation and
local bills."

HEARING: New civic center discussed at meeting

an elementary school and
other educational needs,
Medicaid reform, and city and
library needs.
However, the possibility of
having a civic center/multi-
purpose building proved to be
a top issue.
Williams, who spoke on
behalf of the county, said the
county can afford to operate a
multi-purpose building
through local sources of fund-
ing but can't afford to build the
facility. He said the county has
already set aside $250,000 for

the project.
Jennings suggested a self-
help aid for taxes plan that the
legislators could provide. This
would would allow the county
a tax break as it constructed
the building with county funds.
While Kendrick said he
believed one of the meeting's
top issues was the Medicaid
reform that will be dealt with
next week during a special leg-
islative session, he also noted
the impact a multi-purpose
building could have on the

"I would strongly encourage
the county to look at the need
for a civic center as a multi-use
building - basically capitaliz-
ing on the fact that it's in the
center of the state; it is in the
middle of a very good intersec-
tion between 1-10 and 1-75,
which could take the overspill
from Jacksonville, south
Florida and the western part of
the Panhandle," he said.
Following the meeting,
Argenziano said all the topics
discussed during the hearing
were important, but some will

get more attention that others.
"When you see the people
come out and utilize their gov-
ernment and they're having
their voices heard, everyone of
the issues is important," she
said. "For the community, the
most interesting issue for me
to bring back to help with is the
school-overcrowding issue and
giving the school boards more
flexibility to handle the class
size reduction, some of the
other educational concerns
and the needs of the

available to support charities in
our area, giving not only of his

Giebeig said the next step for
local officials would be to plan
and try to address issues in
areas where they have experi-
ence and develop a local plan of
action, while reviewing the state
plan of action. Currently there
is no timeframe for developing a
plan to deal with a pandemic.
"The biggest thing would be

to continue to educate the pub-

French doctors claim

world's first partial

face transplant

Associated Press

LYON, France - Doctors
in France said they had per-
formed the world's first par-
tial face transplant, forging
the way into a risky medical
frontier by operating on a
woman disfigured by a dog
The 38-year-old woman,
who wants to remain anony-
mous, had a nose, lips and
chin grafted onto her face
from a brain-dead donor
whose family gave consent.
The operation, performed
Sunday, was led by a sur-
geon already famous for a
transplant . breakthrough,
Dr. Jean-Michel Dubernard.
"The patient's general
condition is excellent and
the transplant looks nor-
mal," said a statement from
the hospital in the northern
city of Amiens where the
operation took place.
Dubernard would not dis-
cuss the surgery, but con-
firmed that it involved the
nose, lips and chin.
"We still don't know when

the patient will get out," he
said. A news conference is
planned for Friday.
Scientists in China have
performed scalp and ear
transplants, but experts say
the mouth and nose are the
most difficult parts of the
face to transplant. In 2000,

THE HAGUE, Netherlands
- The Yugoslav war crimes
tribunal acquitted a senior
officer of the Kosovo Albanian
rebels Wednesday of tortur-
ing and murdering ethnic
Serbian and Albanian civilians
at a prison camp during the
1998-1999 war.
Several dozen friends, fami-
ly and supporters applauded
and roared in approval as
Fatmir Limaj's acquittal was
A second defendant, Isak
Musliu, was also acquitted,
while the third, Haradin Bala,
was sentenced to 13 years in
prison for executing nine pris-
oners in the woods in July
1998. All three pleaded inno-
cent on all charges.
In Kosovo, where Limaj is
considered a hero, celebrato-
'ry gunfire echoed through
the Serbian province's capital,
Pristina, and drivers honked
their horns.
Kosovo President Ibrahim
Rugova hailed the court's
decision, saying it proves "the

righteousness of the war for
liberation and independence
by ethnic Albanians" in
"We are delighted," said
Hashim Thaci, the former
leader of the ethnic Albanian
rebel force who now heads
the opposition Democratic
Party, of which Limaj is a
member. "It is a victory for
Limaj, for citizens of Kosovo,"
Thaci said.

camp or in the execution in
the Berishe mountains or that
he has criminal responsibility
for any offenses for which he
is charged," presiding judge
Kevin Parker said.
The court found that
crimes were committed at the
camp, which held ethnic

Serbs and ethnic Albanians
suspected of collaboration.
But it said the prosecution
failed to link Limaj to beat-
ings, inhumane treatment,
torture and murder.
Most prisoners were
"detained in either a very
small basement storage room
or another very small room
used as a cow shed," Parker
said. "In the cow shed, most
detainees were chained to the
wall and unable to move."
The camp was abandoned
in late July 1998 during an
assault by Serbian forces, and
about 20 detainees were taken
to the nearby mountains
under a KIA escort.
Bala was convicted for his
role in the execution of nine
prisoners, but the court said
his sentence of 13 years in
prison reflected his low rank.
"You were acting as a sol-
dier under orders in releasing
some prisoners and executing
nine of them. You did not do
this on your own initiative or
decision. While that does not
excuse your conduct it affects
the degree of the seriousness
of your conduct," Parker said.

roll on

The Class 2A
state playoffs
are rolling
towards their
inevitable finish
at Dolphins Stadium in
Miami today. And surpris-
ingly, Madison County High
is out of the running for a
third straight title game
appearance. The Cowboys
were ambushed by South
Sumter High 29-14 in the
regional final last week, and
South Sumter will face off
against Chaminade
Madonna High instead in*
the championship.
Chaminade has raced
through the state playoffs
without a hitch, crushing
Coral Shores High 63-10,
routing Gulliver Prep 42-10
and defeating Clewiston
High 28-6 last week. That
means South Sumter has
its work cut out for it in
today's title game.
Now that the Florida
State Seminoles have lost a
third straight gane for the
first time since Atari was
new and the Rolling Stones
were merely entering
middle age, the question is,
"What now?"
Bobby Bowden is taking
heat in newspapers and on
talk radio throughout the
state for one of the few
times in his coaching
career, and most of the talk
centers on Jeff Bowden and
his playcalling as offensive
It's true, the offense has-
n't been the same since
Mark Richt left to coach
Georgia five years ago. But
are the Seminoles' problems
related to his departure, or
to something else? Maybe
the cycle of college football
has finally affected FSU.
The talent gap in the ACC is
no longer as wide as it was
when Bowden and the
'Noles joined in 1992, and
with Miami and Virginia
Tech now in the conference,
FSU is no longer the undis-
puted king of the castle.
Perhaps Bobby Bowden
can look no further than
Pennsylvania for some salva-
tion. Remember when Joe
Paterno was ridiculed, lam-
basted and called over-the-
hill after back-to-back losing
seasons? Well, after going
10-1 and winning the Big Ten
title, no one is talking about
him in those terms now.
But there has to be some
accountability for the
offensive woes, as Florida
State is just 42nd in total
offense and 39th in scoring
offense this season.
The offensive line is a
sieve, allowing rushers to
tee off on young Drew
Weatherford, who seems to
have regressed as the
season has gone on. Sound
familiar? Remember Chris
Rix was the ACC Freshman
of the Year after throwing
24 TDs in his initial cam-
paign? There was much
excitement surrounding his
second season, but alas, he
never improved. Whose
fault is that?

Falcon Invitational returns to Lake City

Lake City Middle School
girls also to host tourney
at CYSA soccer fields.
From staff reports

In what has become a tradition, the
Lake City Middle School wrestling
team is hosting the annual Falcon
Invitational Wrestling Tournament
starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday.
"I just look forward to it," LCMS
wrestling coach Doug David said. "I
hope our team places second this year.
It's a very attainable goal."
That's because the Falcons have
soared to a 3-0 record so far this sea-
son, and they placed fourth at a pre-
season wrestling tournament at Bolles

and more recently were first at a tour-
nament at Episcopal.
David said Ronnie Graham (85
pounds); Jason Harrison (90), Jimmy
Rukab (125), Justin Kennedy (160),
Jeffrey Bell (171) and Brach Bessant
(189) are the Falcons' best hopes to
win their classes.
"All those guys have been real good
leaders for us this season," David said.
The tournament is generally the
biggest one the Falcons take part- in
during the season, and the participa-
tion has grown from eight teams to the
14 that will attend this year.
Besides LCMS, those teams are
Richardson Middle School, Lakeside
Junior High, Wilkenson Middle
School, Suwannee, University
Christian, Provenience Middle School,

River Springs Middle School, Orange
Park Junior High, Wakulla Middle
School, Lake Asbury Junior High,
Episcopal, Bartram Middle School and
Green Cove Springs Middle School.
David said Suwannee, Orange Park,
Green Cove Springs and River Springs
pose the biggest threats to the
Falcons. And that's what makes the
Falcon Invitational such a big event -
the quality of teams the Invitational
"They get exposed to all the compe-
tition they're going to see," David said.
"It shows them what they need to
work on. All my kids get to wrestle,
and getting out there on the mat is the
most important thing."
Trophies will be awarded to the
first, second and third place teams as

Heisman contenders make final

pitch this weekend for the trophy

Leinart, Bush take
on UCLA at home
in season finale.
Associated Press
Heisman Trophy voters
have one last opportunity to
eye the front-runners.
No. 1 Southern California,
led by its dynamic duo of Matt
Leinart and Reggie Bush, faces
No. 11 UCLA on Saturday with
a chance to claim a spot in the
national title game.
Vince Young and No. 2
Texas try to secure their place
in the Rose Bowl against
Colorado in the Big 12 cham-
pionship game.
Conventional wisdom puts
Bush at the head of the
Heisman pack after his off-
the-charts performance
against Fresno State - 513
all-purpose yards - two
weeks ago.
Young appeared to be inch-
ing ahead in support until
Bush went off against the
Bulldogs in a 50-42 victory.
Then Young came out flat in a
40-29 win at Texas A&M last
Friday, and Bush got another
bump in the straw polls.

FWC promotes hunter safety

Recent accidents
have prompted
these safety tips.

Five hunting accidents,
including one fatality, in less
than three weeks has resulted
in the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission promoting
hunter safety for the
remainder of this season.
Karen Parker, FWC
spokesperson for the North
Central Florida Region, said
five hunting accidents have
occurred since the general
gun hunting season began
Nov. 12.
"There was one fatality and
it happened Sunday morning,
Nov. 27 in rural Washington
County, when a 13-year-old
Southport teen was killed
when hunting with a group of
friends and family in Econfina
Creek WMA," she said. "We
had a hunting accident in
Duval County, Levy County,
Hamilton County and one in
Calhoun County and in those
four, the injuries were all
non-life threatening.
"Many of the accidents are
still under investigation," she
continued. "If every hunter
would follow the
10 Commandments of fire
arm safety, many of these acci-
dents could be prevented."
Duval, Levy and Hamilton
counties are in the FWC's
North Central Florida region,
which is patrolled out of the
Lake City regional office.
FWC officials there are pro-
moting hunter safety classes
as a way of decreasing the
possibility of hunting
'The most important thing
is hunter safety," Parker
"Hunting is actually one of
the safest recreational sports;
however, even one hunting
accident is one too many. The
FWC and sportsmen alike are
very concerned about safety
and have laws and programs
to avoid injury. Florida has
hundreds of hunter safety vol-
unteers who work hard to
train all hunters to be safe,
ethical and responsible
The hunter safety course is
mandatory for anyone born
on or after June 1, 1975.
Hunters must pass the
course before they can pur-
chase a hunting license when
they become 16 years old.

hunting fatalities have
decreased by 92 percent.

Parker said the number of
accidents during the typical
gun hunting season is
According to FWC records
from 1979-2005, the highest
number of hunting accidents
was in the 1984-85 hunting
season, when there was
43 total accidents, with 10

ble for the child's safe actions
while hunting.
"Even though successful
completion of the hunter safe-
ty course is not mandatory
until one turns 16 years old,
the FWC encourages every-
one - parents and children,

Ted Keizer leaps after reaching the top of Mount Jo in the
Adirondacks at North Elba, N.Y., on Tuesday.

Ultrahiker completes

50-state outing

Associated Press

Ted Keizer climbed Mount
Jo in the Adirondacks on
Tuesday morning, setting a
national outdoors milestone
by completing a series of
marathon hikes across all 50
states in less than three
The 34-year-old marathon
hiker ascended the 2,876-foot
peak with his family and
entourage shortly before
The climb capped the last
of Keizer's grueling 50-kilo-
meter hikes that began 75
days earlier. Included in his
journey were rugged trips
through the Grand Canyon,
the Badlands of South
Dakota, part of the Sante Fe
trail in Kansas and the his-
toric Iditarod Trail in .Alaska.
With 13 Adirondack High
Peaks above 4,000 feet, plus
Mount Jo, Keizer's intended
route had an estimated total

elevation, of 13,600 feet.
However, high winds and icy
trails sent him back after he
had climbed six peaks by
Monday night. He picked up
the rest of the miles hiking
on the mountain's lower
"I was tossed about in the
wind," said Keizer, who also
was forced to navigate slick
ice. 'That was really crazy
last night. It really was."
The wind atop Mount Jo
remained unrelenting
Tuesday morning as -?11,
causing the dozen people in
Keizer's entourage to stag-
ger against the gusts.
Keizer, who is known as
"Cave Dog," has been setting
speed-climbing records for
the last few years. His
resume also includes hot air
balloon pilot, handyman,
high school teacher, moun-
tain, search-and-rescuer,
hotel accountant and ambu-
lance driver. He got his nick-
name because he once slept
in caves to save money.

self. Break what you need to
do into sections, stick to your
budget and get things done
properly. A little notoriety
will generate interest in your
work. ***
22-Dec. 21): Not everyone
will understand you today.
Be explicit in your definition.
Once you clarify your posi-
tion, it will be easy to get
things underway. ***
Jan. 19): You can charm
your way into anyone's heart
today. A short trip will enable
you to finalize something
that's been left dangling.
Refuse to disagree with
anyone who tries to upset
you. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): Don't be afraid to
make a change or to go in a
different direction. Take the
road you know will teach you
the most along the way. It's
time to show everyone how
proficient you can be.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): For every step you take
forward you can expect
someone to push you back.
Watch out for people trying
to outdo you or make you
look bad. If you make a
promise, be sure to follow
through. **
Birthday Baby: You have
plenty of pizzazz, but it's your
resourcefulness and adapt-
ability that will lead to your
success. You push yourselffto
the limit and stop at nothing.


Binge drinking proves deadly

to more than one young adult

DEAR ABBY: I'm writing
regarding "Worried Mom"
from Montana, who is fright-
ened about her children drink-
ing "21 shots" on their 21st
birthday. She is rightfully con-
cerned about this so-called
"rite of passage." We lost our
daughter, Kim, to binge drink-
ing two years ago on Nov. 25.
She consumed between 22 and
24 shots in a four-hour period
and died in her dorm room.
She was only 18. Did she know
the danger she put herself in?
To lose a child over a sense-
less mistake causes pain that
never goes away. Young adults
must realize that if they
indulge in any kind of binge
drinking, they could never see
tomorrow. - MOTHER
accept my deepest sympathy
for your loss, as well as my
thanks for reaching out to
warn parents and young adults
about this practice. If your let-
ter saves even one life, your
effort will have been worth it.
After "Worried Mom's" letter
appeared, I was deluged with
mail. Read on:
Minnesota, the practice is
called "Power Hour," and the
person turning 21 tries to drink
21 shots between midnight and
1 a.m. of his or her birthday.
We begged our son not to do it.
-We told him the danger. He,

Abigail Van Buren
too, insisted, "It's fine!" At 1:30
a.m. we got a phone call from
the hospital where he spent the
next 12 hours on life support.
We were lucky. Our son nearly
died. This foolish, dangerous
practice can lead to tragedy.
DEAR ABBY: I work on a
military base. Several months
ago, we heard the tragic news
that a service member had
died after "celebrating" his 21st
birthday by drinking 21 shots.
It turned out to be his last
birthday. The cause of death
was alcohol poisoning. Despite
all the warnings and lectures, it
still happened.
Please, parents, tell your
children it is NOT "fine." It's
deadly. My heart goes out to
the.parents of that young man.
DEAR ABBY: In my home-
town, a man took his son to the
local bowling alley on his 21st
birthday and proceeded to buy
him 21 shots of liquor. Two
hours later, the "birthday boy"
was dead and his father was in
jail. There's no way the human

body can process that much
alcohol in a few hours. -
DEAR ABBY: I'm sur-
prised that "21 shots" non-
sense is still happening. I wit-
nessed it twice when I was in
the Air Force and college. The
first time, the guy tried to drink
a fifth of whiskey. He died on
the way to the hospital. The
second guy tried to drink a
case of beer in one sitting. He
was hospitalized for weeks and
.was never the same again.
Alcohol should not be neces-
sary to have a fun time - but
getting that across isn't easy.
DEAR ABBY: If my daugh-
ter hadn't had a friend who
brought her home to me, she,
would have died from binge
drinking. Luckily, I was able to
get her to .the ER on time.
Literally hundreds of kids die
every year because of this. A
college Web site - www.col- -
addresses this issue in a fact-
based, peer-run, straight-for-
ward forum. Let "Worried
Mom" and other concerned
parents know about it. This is a
plague among our children.
Knowing the facts is the only
way to keep from dying. -

Holiday death toll up to 5 on area roads By STEVEN RICHMOND The Florida Highway Patrol Friday said a third person died from injuries in a crash following a highspeed chase through Live Oak early Thanksgiving morning. Two more individuals died in separate auto acci dents since then, bring ing the roadway death toll to five in Columbia and Suwannee Counties since Thanksgiving Day. Live Oak resident Shiatera Wimbas, 20, was pronounced dead Friday morning following a high speed police chase down US 129 where two other occupants were killed and one injured around 1:00 a.m. Thanksgiving Day, FHP said. The driver of a 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, Lonnie Lavern Freeman, 20, lost control and crashed into a building on the cor ner of US 129 and Spruce Street Northwest, killing himself, passenger Patrelle J. Stokes, 16, and Wimbash, FHP said. Wimbash, originally list ed in serious condition, was pronounced dead Friday at 12:59 a.m., FHP said. No word was available on the condition of Kwone Levelle Matthews, 23, also listed in serious condition at Shands UF Health after the crash. All four of the cars occu pants were from Live Oak. Deputies responded to a disturbance at the McDonalds at US 129 and I-10 shortly before 1 a.m. Thursday, according to Suwannee County Sheriff Tony Cameron. Eight to ten individuals were harassing custom ers, and when management tried to talk to them they wouldnt listen they were loud and causing a prob lem, Cameron said. When approached by a deputy, four of the individu als fled on foot and got into the Monte Carlo, which struck another vehicle when speeding out of the parking lot. Cameron said deputies had to move the second vehicle before giving chase, which meant they were pretty far behind when the crash occurred. However, he said depu ties were close enough that Freeman could see the blue light and knew law enforcement was in pursuit. Cameron said the Monte Carlo was traveling at a high rate of speed but did not know how fast. FHP is investigating the accident. According to the Florida Department of Corrections Third occupant of fleeing car in Live Oak dies Friday. By AMANDA WILLIAMSON A tiny black-and-white shadow, Miss Kitty sneaks through the offices of Covenant Pet Trust Inc., adjusting to her new space after her owner was admitted to a nursing home. Before neighbors and relatives of Miss Kittys owner heard of Covenant Pet, the little cat lived by herself for five months. Now, the Lake City-based organization promises that Miss Kitty will have a comfort able home for the rest of her life no matter who adopts her. Registered as a nonprofit in January, Covenant Pet Trust steps in to peoples lives, usually at the end, to carry out a pet owners wishes for their furry friend. We dont want to be mistaken as a res cue, said Kathy Wisner, a co-founder of Covenant Pet Trust, Inc. Were not a rescue. Our first focus is to keep the pets with their owners, and then to get with people who own pets to educate them about the need to plan for their pets. Too often, founders Wisner and Pam Taylor encounter stories of pets lost or euthanized because their owners did not take the time to ensure their pets would have a home in case of the unexpected. Once, a man dropped his deceased wifes Pomeranians at the shelter on the day of her death, said Taylor, formerly an employee of Lake City Humane Society. One was adopted, but the other, a fearful dog, remained. A couple weeks later, the womans daughter called searching for the dogs. She made arrangements to transport the remaining Pomeranian to her out-of-state home. The transport picked up her mothers dog, but she never received it. The dog became lost in the system maybe dropped at the wrong destination or maybe stolen to be sold to ani mal-testing labs. O ne of the things I saw with some of the seniors when they got ill is that one by one they had to give up things that they loved. They shouldnt have to give up their pets as well. Letting go of a friend Local group makes sure pets are cared for when owners die or become incapacitated. Reporter kicks off annual food drive By STEVEN RICHMOND Monday marks the start of the Lake City Reporters sixth annual Community Food Drive, sup porting the Florida Gateway Food Bank and their efforts to feed those in need this holiday season. The thought of families in our community going hungry at Christmas is troubling, said Lake City Reporter Publisher Todd Wilson. Our staff wanted to make a positive difference and our readers have really stepped up to assist. We are always amazed by the kind ness of our community when there is a need to be met. Were excited to lead this food drive effort for the sixth straight year. The staff at the Reporter office (180 E. Duval Street) will be collecting non-perishable food items Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Friday, Dec. 13. Readers with subscriptions can leave bags of nonperishable food items in their Reporter paper tube or at the end of their driveway the night of Thursday, Dec. 12 to be picked up by carriers Friday, Dec. 13. No glass containers, please. Cash donations can be made by checks payable to Florida Gateway Food Bank. For more information, call the newspaper at 386752-1293. PETS continued on 2A LOCAL MERCHANTS RING IN SMALL BUSINESS SAT. By STEVEN RICHMOND Locals and their outof-town family all turned out in droves to the Lake City Mall, looking for the best deals and bargains for Black Friday. However, many local shops put an emphasis on Small Business Saturday, an economic counterat tack to the consumer hysteria the day after Thanksgiving. John Woodley, co-owner of the family-owned and -operated JW Weaponry on US 41, offered custom ers discounts on every thing except ammunition Friday and Saturday. He described the days as some of the best busi ness Ive seen since our grand opening June 29. Vann Carpet One Floor and Home sales manager Matt Vann said their store was already doing to 60 percent better than Black Fridays previous years. He also lauded the ben efits of consumers shop ping locally and keep ing their money in their hometown. Ive seen studies that show money spent in local businesses recycles through the community about seven times. You dont see that with big national chains, Vann said. That money also goes toward local things like sponsoring school activities and youth athlet ics. Tout virtues of keeping money here at home. STEVEN RICHMOND /Lake City Reporter Nicole Cook gets a makeover for her uncles wedding from Alissa Novak, the self-described best make-up artist in Lake City, at Southern Exposure Saturday afternoon. Everything is 20 percent off today for Small Business Saturday, said receptionist Jessi Smith. Shopping locally helps keep money here where its needed most.

The majority of people want to get their pets adopted, to find them a safe place for when their owner passes, Taylor said. So, they know that their pets will be taken care of. So far, Covenant Pet has helped 13 animals, includ ing seven cats and six dogs. Last week, the non profit earned its 501(c)(3) designation, meaning all donations to the organiza tion are tax-deductible. Planning for an animal doesnt have to be a con voluted mess, Wisner said. First, the program plans long-term for the animals. Based on whether the pet would live with a relative or be rehomed, Covenant Pet decides how to handle the situation after the owner is gone. Florida does have a pet trust law, so that makes it a little bit easier, she added. But it does need to be done appropriately. Were not a legal firm. We dont offer legal advice, but we do have access to forms that simplify it. We encourage people to take the forms to their attorney to make sure their pets are incorporated, so they dont get forgotten. Both founders witnessed firsthand the importance of what Covenant Pet does. As the only organization of its kind, it provides assistance to elderly or ill individuals who need help caring for their pets in the home, in addition to pre paring plans for pets when their owner passes. Taylors mother was diagnosed with lung cancer, but went into remission after a series of treatments. Her mother adopted a Chihuahua from the animal shelter, and named it Bruce after her oncologist. As it turned out, she wasnt in remission, but Bruce was really, really good company for her, Taylor added. It was neat to see how comforting he was. She was very con cerned about him, what would happen to him after she was gone, if he would think she had abandoned him. Taylor now owns the tiny Chihuahua she calls Dr. Bruce, after its namesake. In the past, she used to work for the Lake City Humane Society where she would see animals, such as the two Pomeranians, abandoned after death claimed the life of their owners. It was her mothers situation that really opened her eyes. Through Covenant Pet, she hopes to prevent as many animals as possible from winding up at the pound. When a pets been in a home, they are used to a certain level of care or attention and a shelter can be a very stressful environment, Taylor said. Once pets go into a shel ter and theyre depressed from losing an owner or a home, they wont eat. Sometimes they become fearful. They may react aggressively even when thats not their nature... and in a shelter, only the friendliest survive. To keep animals in their program from ever experi encing the shelter environ ment, Covenant Pet uses six volunteer foster homes to place animals. The organization is constantly looking for new fosters, estimating they need approximately 40 homes to meet future needs. According to Wisner, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals estimates 300,000 orphaned animals are surrendered to shel ters each year across the United States. Covenant Pets first adoption, Wolfy, origi nally lived in Jacksonville. His owner Sharon was diagnosed with recur ring cancer, which was believed to be in remis sion. Concerned about her animals, she contacted Covenant Pet. Sharon was maybe 90 pounds and obviously weak ened, Wisner said. Her dog was close to 130 pounds of Newfoundland golden Labrador mix. Beautiful, sweet dog, but Sharon didnt have a fenced-in backyard. He had to be walked. Wolfy found a foster fam ily through Covenant Pet, then he found a permanent home after Sharon died. While Sharon was alive, she communicated with the foster family who took care of Wolfy, exchanging e-mails, phone calls and pictures. She knew, prior to her death, that her dog would be taken care of. For people who are ill, Taylor said, what choices do they have? Covenant Pet helps. Wisner added her passion with Taylors to create the organization. Before starting the non profit, she worked with elderly individuals. The seniors would approach her and ask, If some thing happens to me, can you take care of Benny, or Molly or whoever, Wisner said. One of the things I saw with some of the seniors when they got ill is that one by one they had to give up things that they loved, she added. They shouldnt have to give up their pets as well. Its much better for the owner and the pet if they can stay together for as long as possible. The organization pro vides in-home service to help keep a pet in its home as long as possible. Covenant Pet helps with taking pets to the vet, delivering food or get ting the animal bathed. They do jobs the normal, but important, responsi bilities owners may not be able to do while they are sick. There is no charge for Covenant Pets services. To support the animals, Covenant Pet fundraises through monthly dog socials, special events and more. Sometimes founders Wisner and Taylor even contribute their own funds to the cause. On Dec. 14, Covenant Pet will hold a Flash Dog holiday walk, which is a play on a flashmob. The walk meanders through the Festival of Lights at the Stephen Foster Center in White Springs, and the entrance fee includes a cup of hot cocoa. Admission is $15 per participant with one dog, and $10 for every additional dog for the walk. Admission to the Foster Center is an addi tional $3 per person.

He spent his life helping his wife in their athome daycare and wiring houses for his five children. Through all the years, Thomas has earned the title of wonderful husband, father, grandpa and Paw to the many people lucky enough to call him family. On Wednesday evening, Thomas passed away unexpectedly while hunting white-tailed deer, a hobby that he loved, said wife Linda Gail Thomas. Funeral services for Thomas will be held today at 12:30 p.m. in the Orchard Community Church. He was very much a loving and caring man, who took care of his wife and family everyday, Linda Gail Thomas said. Born on May 17, 1943, Thomas was the son of the late Reuben Bascom and Minnie Bell Durrance Thomas. He loved the 33 years spent working for Florida Power & Light Co., Linda Gail Thomas said, and didnt realize until retirement how much he truly did love it. After retirement in December 1997, he worked with Norton Construction wiring houses on the side. When Thomas com pleted a house, he would turn the screws on every light switch and receptacle cover in the same direction. The trick meant he would be able to tell if anyone had been in the outlet or switchbox if he had to return to the house for some reason. One of his goals was to wire each one of his kids a house, and [he] was able to achieve that goal before passing, said his son Jason Thomas. Thomas is survived his wife of 48 years, Linda Gail, and his five children, Winton Russell Thomas, Jr., (Kathy) James Arness Thomas, (Sherrie Gail), Jason Wayne Thomas,(Michelle), Justin Lyle Thomas, (Michelle), Charese Hope Norton(Jack). Eight grandchildren Ryan, Kaleb, Joshua, Tara, Dylan Victoria, Weston Thomas and Braxton Thomas Norton. One brother Reuben Hugh Thomas. His close family friend Debra Parrish Evans and chosen granddaughter Joana Page Evans. He instilled in his children a legacy, but his passion lies with his grandchil dren, Evans said. He taught them how to drive the tractor, and he taught them how to hunt. She herself remembers lessons on hunting and hunting techniques, on respect and manners for the elderly and on the love of family. To her, Thomas was probably the finest hunter she ever knew. She remembers shooting an eight-point buck while on a hunting trip with Thomas about three years ago. Thomas, she felt, was more proud of that buck than of anything else she had ever done, Evans added. Thomas planted deer plots for his grandchildren and children so they could enjoy hunting with him. In addition to planting deer plots, he enjoyed planting corn, peas and rye, then watching the plants grow. As colder weather set in around the Thomas familys Lake City home, Thomas loved to have a fire burning in the fire place. Each one of us would come over and go straight to that fire, Jason Thomas said. There was only one negative. Having to get enough wood to carry us through the winter. The wood stack would be six-feet high and a mile long at least it seemed like that... In the past five to 10 years, Thomas started helping his wife bake her famous cinnamon rolls. Since the rolls were so popular, Linda Gail Thomas and her hus band frequently shipped them out-of-state on request. Thomas loved to carry his grandchil dren and the children staying at his wifes at-home daycare around the yard on the tractor. The kids loved it, Jason Thomas said. If they had never rode a tractor, they did while they were here, he added. A model family man, Thomas taught all his children to work hard and never to complete a task only half-way, said Thomas son Justin. He was always there to help them without complaint if they asked, and the answer was never no.

By AVALYN HUNTERSpecial to the ReporterG etting an education isn’t always easy. Most students succeed in handling what is asked of them along the way. But for some, keeping up in school becomes a struggle. And for a few, the struggle is overwhelm-ing. As instructional coaches at Fort White High School, Bobbie Moore and Stephenie Busch know the intensity and pain of their students’ struggles well. Both experienced teachers (Moore has been in education for 38 years, Busch for 17), they are dedicated to helping stu-dents find their way to success in learn-ing. “I really feel that teaching is a calling that God sends some people,” says Moore. “I think for me it started with reading the book ‘Christy,’ by Catherine Marshall. I was a teenager then and it opened my eyes to the need out there. I wanted to help people the way Christy did in the book, by teaching.” Moore, a High Springs native who holds a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from the University of Florida and a master’s degree in reading from Nova Southeastern University, has been at FWHS since it opened in 2000. Until recently, she worked primarily as a read-ing coach, but this year her duties have broadened to assisting students having difficulty in any academic area. “Reading is basic to everything, and a student who has trouble with reading usually has trouble across the board,” says Busch, who became Moore’s co-coach this year. “But sometimes you do get a student who reads well but has a specific problem with math or science, and we’re here to help with that as well. A lot of what we do is helping equip classroom teachers to help these students better; that’s where I feel my train-ing in leadership is really helpful.” (A native of Wellborn who now lives in Lake City, Busch holds a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University and a master’s degree in educational lead-ership from Nova Southeastern.) Moore and Busch actually play two roles: providing a helping hand to their fel-low teachers, and identifying and assisting students who are having difficulty. “Our main goal is to help the student in the classroom setting as much as possible, so we try to help the student’s teachers identify and make the accommodations the student needs,” says Moore. Students who need assistance are identified through teacher observations and data obtained from the computer-based Performance Matters program, which assesses students in reading, math, and science three times a year. Once identi-fied, the students may receive help on an individual basis, in small groups, or through peer support, although the latter is necessarily limited because of the need to protect student privacy. “The best thing a student can do is admit he or she is having trouble and seek out their teach-er,” Moore says. “We have free tutoring available at the school, and that will be expanded in January thanks to a grant we received that is allowing us to hire additional tutors.” For some students – those identified as having reading skills too low to func-tion at the middle school level – a more structured intervention is needed. That’s where the Reading to Work program comes in. “The students take it in place of one of their electives,” Busch explains. “It’s an FCAT-based program in which they read stories and then answer ques-tions about those stories to improve read-ing skills and comprehension.” Despite teachers’ best efforts, some students do drop out with their problems still unremedied. But this doesn’t have to be the end of the story. In addition to high school diploma and GED prepara-tion courses, Columbia County offers adult basic education courses aimed at improving reading and math skills. Interested individuals can learn more about these options through the Career and Adult Education Center’s website ( or can call the Center at 386-755-8190. The information desk at the public library is also a good resource. Ultimately, the goal of instructional coaching is to enable students to succeed without it. “The key is really self-own-ership,” says Moore. “We do the best we can to find material the students are interested in that’s on their level, and that often isn’t easy. But it’s the student who has to take the time to read and to learn perseverance in working through prob-lems. And parents can be a big part of it. When they take time to sit down and read with their children, they help show that reading is both important and fun. If the parent can’t read well, he or she can still help by encouraging their student and treating their accomplishments as impor-tant. When a child succeeds, we all win.” Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2013 3A Keeping FWHS students in the game AVALYN HUNTER/ Special to the Reporter FWHS instructional coaches Stephenie Busch and Bobbie M oore work with junior Rykia Jackson in the school’s media center.

Lake City resident Rose May Franks, 81, and Branford resident Jeffery J. Stacy, 24, were killed in separate automobile acci-dents Friday, according to FHP. Chad E. Driskell, 24, was driving a 1994 Ford with Ashley V. Lord, 22, on CR 242A around 2:50 a.m. Friday in Columbia County when they struck Franks, who was walking in the eastbound lane, the report said. Driskell said he failed to see the pedestrian in time to avoid the crash, accord-ing to the report. FHP did not know why Franks was walking in the road. Troopers also indicated Driskell was not under the influence during the inci-dent. Charges are pending an investigation still under-way. Stacy was killed in a single vehicle accident at the intersection of 43rd Road and 280 Street in Branford around 10:30 p.m. Thursday, FHP said.

BY EMAIL: Taking care of your pets after youre gone TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1824, the presidential election was turned over to the U.S. House of Representatives when a dead lock developed between John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, William H. Crawford and Henry Clay. (Adams ended up the winner.) In 1860, the Charles Dickens novel Great Expectations was first published in weekly serial form. In 1909, the first kibbutz was founded in the Jordan Valley by a group of Jewish pioneers; the collective settlement became known as Degania Alef. In 1910, The Miami Herald was first published under that name (it was known under previous ownership as the Miami Morning News-Record). In 1921, the Navy flew the first nonrigid dirigible to use helium. In 1934, Soviet communist official Sergei M. Kirov, an associate of Josef Stalin, was assassinated in Leningrad, resulting in a massive purge. In 1941, Japans Emperor Hirohito approved wag ing war against the United States, Britain and the Netherlands after his government rejected U.S. demands contained in the Hull Note In 1955, Rosa Parks, a black seamstress, was arrest ed after refusing to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery, Ala., city bus; the incident sparked a year-long boycott of the buses by blacks. Fracking outgreens green energy A constant, mild hiss. That was my chief observation when I returned to Anadarko Petroleums Landon Pad A, a natural-gas site in Lycoming County, Pa. Octobers quietude was totally unlike the cyclone of equipment, personnel, and activity that dominated this spot last June, when Anadarko and the American Petroleum Institute hosted journal ists and policy analysts here. Back then, engineers used a pressurized blend of 90 percent water, 9.5 per cent sand, and 0.5 percent chemi cals to shake subterranean shale deposits and awaken natural gas that has slumbered since the dino saurs died. This hydraulic fractur ing or fracking occurs some 6,000 feet underground. This is 5,000 feet beneath the water table deep enough to bury three Empire State Buildings. This spot now resembles the scene of a once-raging party that has been cleared out and cleaned up. The trucks have driven off. Dozens of workers have moved on. The cranes are gone. What remains are three acres of gravelcovered farmland, five completed wells, and a steady, low-volume whoosh. This is the sound of natu ral gas being captured; counted by a cash register gauge that mea sures output and, thus, royalties; and conveyed via yellow pipes into the broader natural-gas market. The result? Warm bedrooms on crisp nights and hot showers on cold mornings. Despite the shrill complaints of fracking foes, this productive-buttranquil patch demonstrates how much greener fracking is than other power sources even green ones. -Fracking should please those who fret about CO2. Since 2002, carbon dioxide out put has grown 32 percent globally, Manhattan Institute senior fellow Robert Bryce wrote for September 20s Bloomberg View. In the U.S., meanwhile, carbon dioxide emis sions were 8 percent lower in 2012 than they were in 2002, largely due to a surge in shale gas pro duction, which has reduced coal use. Indeed, fracking has helped America keep its unratified Kyoto Protocol commitments while other countries decry so-called global warming, yet continue boosting CO2. -Water is a precious resource. So, conservationists should smile at how little water frack ing requires versus other energy sources. According to the U.S. Energy Department and the Ground Water Protection Council, it typically takes three gallons of water to produce 1 million British Thermal Units of energy from deep-shale natural gas/fracking. Nuclear power requires 11 gal lons/million BTUs. Coal: 23 gal lons. Corn ethanol? A whopping 15,800 gallons. And soy biodiesel requires nearly triple that amount: 44,500 gallons per million BTUs 14,833 times the water needed for fracking. But what about ground water pol lution? The hysteria that fracking poisons drinking water lacks one key ingredient: Evidence. As former EPA chief Lisa Jackson testified before Congress in May 2011: Im not aware of any proven case where the fracking process itself has affected water. -Protecting habitat is another key eco-priority. Fracking suc ceeds here, too. An SAIC/RW Beck study found that natural gas companies use 0.4 acres of land to generate a years supply of electricity for 1,000 households. Nuclear power requires 0.7 acres. Coal consumes 0.75 acres. Wind power needs six acres. And, solar cells require 8.4 acres to fuel 1,000 households annually. This is 21 times natural gas habitat impact. So, if you are a Gila mon ster or a Joshua tree, cheer frack ing and hiss solar. Environmentalists should embrace natural-gas fracking for being easy on the air, water, land, and wildlife in most cases far more than the sustainable energy sources that ecologists adore. Our Food Drive needs your help A re you still stuffed from Thanksgiving dinner? Have you reflected on the bounty of your fam ily, your surroundings, your life? Are you filled with bless ings? Dont let this feeling pass with out assisting others. We need your help! The Lake City Reporters Sixth Annual Community Food Drive begins on Monday and weve set a goal to fill our 24-foot delivery truck with donated food items for needy families in Columbia County. Were asking our readers for assistance, so that we may help those less fortunate in Columbia County. Its simple: We need your donation of non-perishable food items. Bring canned goods or boxed dry goods to the Lake City Reporter office (180 E. Duval St., downtown, across from the courthouse) and well load it and deliver it to the Florida Gateway Food Bank. The Food Banks par ent organization, Catholic Charities, will make sure the food stays in Columbia County and is dispersed to our local residents in need. Our food drive is a quick push to help those less fortunate. It runs from tomorrow through Friday, Dec. 13. On that Friday morning, our newspaper carriers will pick up any remaining donations our sub scribers leave by their newspaper tubes or in bags at the end of their driveways. We launched this food drive six years ago when we learned of the great need during these two weeks to replenish the Food Bank. There is an abundance of food donated to the Food Bank before Thanksgiving and many food baskets are assem bled and distributed to families in our region. The turnaround time between Thanksgiving baskets and Christmas baskets was too quick and supplies were scarce. There wasnt enough food to meet the need of those less fortunate in our community. The thought of families in our community possibly not having the means for a proper Christmas din ner did not sit well with our staff. Strong community newspapers focus on challenges in their com munities and lead for change. Our staff at the Lake City Reporter wanted to get involved and improve the situation and we asked our readers for assistance. The food drive is a growing suc cess and that credit goes to our readers. Our loyal customers come through every year and we appreci ate how everyone helps us respond to the need of hungry families in Columbia County. Please give what you can. A bag of canned goods, dry boxes of food, anything non-perishable will make a difference. The only restriction is no glass containers, please. If you want to write a check and donate that way, please make it to Florida Gateway Food Bank and drop it by our office. Bring your food items to the Lake City Reporter anytime dur ing normal business hours during the next two weeks. The blessing you pass along will come back to you tenfold. Thanks in advance and Merry Christmas! Y ou cant take them with you, but you can be sure your pets are properly cared for after youve passed on. Thats thanks to Kathy Wisner and Pam Taylor and their Lake City-based non-profit, Covenant Pet Trust. As described in a story on todays front page, Covenant Pet, among other things, helps pet owners plan for their furry friends well-being in the event of their own death. Its a great idea, and unique in the nation to our knowledge. Beyond that, the group helps the criti cally ill keep and care for their pets for as long as humanly possible. Its a beautiful humanitarian gesture, and were not surprised it took two local folks to think of it. Fine job, ladies.

During an Oct. 21 meet ing, City Manager Wendell Johnson introduced the idea of a creating a Special Magistrate position that would effectively have the same status and authority as the current seven-mem ber Code Enforcement Board. Johnson said in an Oct. 17 memo that the Special Magistrate would create a more meaningful due pro cess and... the most effec tive means for enhanced service and code compli ance. However, the ordinance under discussion Monday night would allow the city to create the new position while also retaining the Code Enforcement Board. My understanding is that well have one or the other, Mayor Stephen Witt said. We wouldnt have to go back and redo it if some thing doesnt work out with the new position. We talked about the possibility keep ing the board but not hav ing people on it. Witt and Johnson agreed in the Oct. 21 meeting that a code enforcement board, as far as Lake City is con cerned, can be cumber some and that filling vacan cies has become problem atic. According to the pro posed ordinance, the Special Magistrate would have at least five years of law experience and good standing with the Florida Bar. He or she would not technically be an employ ee of the city, but rather compensated for his or her services through a future resolution presented before the council. The council will discuss this and other matters fol lowing the annual lighting of Olustee Park at 5:30 p.m. City council is slated to have their regular meeting at City Hall downtown on Monday at 7:00 p.m. SALES Continued From 1A Olustee Park set to shine The Christmas lights in Olustee Park in downtown Lake City will on turned on Monday evening. The ceremony is set for 5:30 p.m.

Lake City Reporter SPORTS Sunday, December 1, 2013 Section B Story ideas? Contact Tim Kirby Sports Editor 754-0421 By TIM KIRBY GAINESVILLE It was a day at The Swamp that was much more chop than chomp. Florida State did the expected with a 37-7 win over Florida to cap off a 12-0 season. The Seminoles now get to take on Duke in the ACC championship game and are one win away from playing for a national title. I was pleased we were able to finish off the season in the right way, FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher said. I am happy for the players, coaches and fans for the way we played in a tough place. Florida kept it close for 20 minutes, as its defense held the Seminoles to a 49-yard Roberto Aguayo field goal until early in the second quarter. Despite being pinned at their 4-yard line, the Seminoles rolled 96 yards in 12 plays. Florida State converted a third-and-26 with a pass from Jameis Winston to Kenny Shaw for 27 yards. Later, on second-and-20, Winston hit Kelvin Benjamin for 23 yards. On the next play, Benjamin took a slant pass and ran through four tack lers to score from 45 yards out at 4:24. We overcame two pen alties and a third-and-long and our confidence start ed growing, Fisher said. That third-and-26 got the whole momentum going. Offense is about rhythm and we couldnt get into that flow. Once we got that, things loosened up. Benjamin was just getting started. On Florida States next series, he caught a 29-yard touchdown pass. Benjamins day was a season for Florida receiv ers. He had nine catches for 212 yards and three touchdowns. Kelvin can be a very special player, Fisher said. He puts his time in the playbook. It is unique because all our skill guys are very intelligent. We dont care which way the coverage goes. Getting the ball vertical was the key to the game. Winston did nothing to hurt his Heisman chances. He finished 19 of 31 for 327 yards. His interception on the opening drive was a tipped-ball fluke. Jameis competitive ness is ridiculous, Fisher said. The more heated it becomes, the better he gets. The more he gets banged, he jumps right back into the fight. His ability to learn BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City Reporter Former Columbia High player and current Florida State Seminole Timmy Jernigan Jr. urges the Florida crowd to bring on the noise in Florida States 37-7 win on Saturday in Gainesville. GAINESVILLE I ts dirty work and it takes somebody special to do it. Lake City native Timmy Jernigan Jr. is an interior lineman on defense for the Seminoles. The junior has started every game this season, and played most downs on Saturday. Watch him in the middle and you see double-teams, triple-teams and cut blocks to get him out of a passing lane. Fighting a double-team on one play Saturday, Jernigan had his helmet ripped off. Its nasty down there, Jernigan said after the game. It is what youve got to expect when you dominate. Its a group effort and it helps to free up others. Jernigan gave the Gators props all week and was magnanimous in victory. We knew it would be a tough fight coming in, Jernigan said. You can throw the records out and that is the mindset we had to come in with. Beating a non-ACC opponent, especially Florida, was special for Jernigan. It is fun to play a team outside of the conference, especially one as talented as Florida, he said. It is another chance to prove our point. It means a lot from a personal standpoint, growing up 20 minutes from here. Jernigan entered Saturdays game with 25 solo tackles and 18 assists including 4.5 sacks and 10.5 tackles-for-loss. He is loosey-goosey before and during games, often CHEAP SEATS Tim KirbyPhone: (386) 754-0421 Jernigan is man in middle for FSU 1BSPORTS NOLES continued on 4B FSU swamps Gators BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City Reporter Florida State receiver Kelvin Benjamin breaks through a group of Florida defensive players in the Seminoles 37-7 win on Saturday in Gainesville.

Keeping Florida off the scoreboard until the Seminoles’ offense got rolling is part of the regular plan. “We’re a team,” Jernigan said. “We don’t get frustrated with each other. We fight together. It was a tough first half, but when we get in that situation in the future we will know how to handle it.” With an ACC championship game against Duke and a likely spot in the national championship game, that future is bright. “12-0 hasn’t been done in a long time here,” Jernigan said. “We always want to stay hungry and not let up on anybody. That’s what our coaches teach us.” Jernigan is No. 8, as is running back Devonta Freeman on offense. So, what is going to happen if they want to retire the number? “I don’t mind sharing it with him,” Jernigan said. “He’s a good player.” Taking the season a week at a time has worked for the Seminoles and Jernigan has the same approach for a potential future in professional football. “It is in the back of my head, but it wouldn’t be fair to my teammates if I only thought of myself,” he said. Jernigan is a Columbia High graduate and has his family here. “I thank the Lake City folks for supporting me through a long journey, especially some of my old teachers at CHS,” Jernigan said. “I appreciate it.” Q Tim Kirby is sports editor for the Lake City Reporter. Return to glory: Auburn beats Alabama, 34-28, on missed kickAssociated PressAUBURN, Ala. — Chris Davis raced 100-plus yards with a missed field-goal attempt for a touchdown on the final play to lift No. 4 Auburn to a 34-28 vic-tory over No. 1 Alabama on Saturday. Davis caught the ball about 9 yards deep in the end zone after freshman Adam Griffith’s 57-yard attempt fell short. He then sprinted down the left sideline and cut back with nothing but teammates around him in a second straight hard-to-fathom fin-ish for the Tigers (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference). Auburn clinched a spot in the SEC championship game with the stunning victory over the two-time defending national cham-pions. The Crimson Tide (11-1, 7-1) seemed at sev-eral times poised to con-tinue its run toward the first three-peat in modern col-lege football. Instead, the Tigers put it away just when overtime seemed their best hope.2BSPORTS JERNIGAN: Thanks Lake City fans Continued From Page 1B BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterLake City native Timmy Jernigan warms up before Florida State’s 37-7 win over Florida on Saturday in Gainesville.

The Wolverines went for the win and the Buckeyes stayed undefeated.

We played the game to win, Hoke said.

Send it to us with Foolish Trivia on the top and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a nifty prize! A huge dividend yield that seems too good to be true usually is, because it’s probably due to the stock having plunged in price, with few investors believing in it. If an industry enters a downswing, as hap-pens in cyclical industries and during economic crises, there may not be any earnings to distribute, leading to dividend cuts or suspensions. Auto-makers and banks have been good examples of that not too long ago. Companies with checkered histories of dividend payments aren’t the strongest candidates for invest-ment — especially in a bear market, when external factors may strain their resources. Fortunately, many companies sport long dividend histories, demonstrat-ing their reliability. Colgate-Palmol-ive, for example, has paid a dividend each year since 1895! A company’s payout ratio — calculated by dividing the annual dividend by earnings per share — reflects the sustainability of its dividend. If a company is paying out more than it’s making, that’s not a good sign. To see which healthy and growing dividend payers we’ve recommended (many with yields topping 5 percent), take advantage of a free trial of our “Motley Fool Income Investor” news-letter at K_\Dfkc\p=ffcKXb\ Everyone’s All A-TwitterSocial media darling Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) debuted on the stock market via an initial public offering (IPO) on Nov. 7. Inter-est in it has been great, but is it a stock to buy now? Opinions differ. Twitter is attractive to many for its growth prospects. It has been growing its revenue (mostly from advertising) at triple-digit rates lately, and its profit margins are growing. Its business is rather capital-light, too, as it can expand without building expensive new factories or stores, or having to hire gobs of new workers. Hopes are high for international expansion, although the majority of Twitter’s users already come from abroad and contribute only about a quarter of its revenue. On the other hand, keep in mind that Twitter is still unprofitable, and that its recent valuation is quite lofty. Rapid growth rates do decline over time, and its growth in U.S. users is already slowing. Much of its potential lies in how well it monetizes its users. A sensible approach with Twitter, as with many freshly minted stocks, is to wait for the dust to settle, as high-flyers often come down to earth, at least for a while. Aim to buy only when the stock seems to be valued at significantly less than you think it will be worth in the future.

LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1-7, 2013 3CStatePointIf you ever work from home or plan to, there are many things you need to consider to make sure your home office is conducive to productivity. From prevent-ing technological snafus to dealing with the social realities of working where you live, preparing yourself for the home office experi-ence is important.Stay FocusedWorking from home provides flexibility and work-life balance. But the flip side of the coin is a risk of distraction. Stay on task by planning your day in the morn-ing, setting strict working hours, and sticking to the rules you create -such as no television or personal calls during the day. Make sure your family and friends know that working from home is not synonymous with an extended vacation.Protect Your WorkWhen you work in a central office, you rely on your company’s tech sup-port team to protect your work and data. But when you work from home, you may not have that luxury. Over half of all small busi-ness owners have had to redo work due to a lost or deleted file, according to recent studies. Protecting your work against data loss can be a challenge. And while many home-based workers and small business owners are concerned about data loss, most aren’t taking full advantage of what is known as cloud computing. These days, you can back up all of your data securely on the Internet so you are covered if your personal computer goes down. New technology is making data protection an easy, affordable investment.Stay Connected Many people dream of working from home to avoid long commutes, co-worker distractions and other office pitfalls, but once they start, they real-ize that it can be a lone-some prospect. You can combat workfrom-home loneliness with a bit of structure, however. Make full use of your lunch hour by using the time to run errands, have a lunch date with a friend, hit the gym or otherwise break up the day with conversation and interaction. Also, don’t be shy about picking up the phone or using Skype to touch base with colleagues, versus sending an email. While you may not be dealing with traffic jams and chatty cubicle neigh-bors, working from home comes with its own set of challenges. Preparing for them can make the expe-rience more productive, happy and fulfilling.StatePointIt’s not just individuals who can benefit from New Year’s resolutions. Businesses can also use the new year as an opportunity to reflect on how to improve in the year to come. With that in mind, here is a resolution checklist for small business owners: • Get your books in order: Make sure to update balance sheets and compile income and cash flow statements. • Evaluate goals: Did you meet your goals this year? What helped you achieve success? How can you improve the fol-lowing year? Clearly documenting your goals and making them acces-sible to your staff will keep them top-of-mind. This can be anything, from bringing on a certain number of new employ-ees to hitting a sales goal or expanding product offerings. Once you`ve set your goals, devise a plan that will get you there, with monthly or quar-terly checkpoints, so you can ensure you`re on track. • Protect data: Small businesses say that data is their most valuable asset. Are you adequately protecting it? Many small businesses only back up files once or twice a month, which can result in a tremendous loss. Cloud backup is the best way to ensure you get all your files back easily in the event of a disaster. Save yourself a headache and protect your files automatically. A secure and affordable ser-vice will continually create cop-ies of all your files and store them in the cloud. Once the files are backed up, you can remotely access them from nearly any Internet-connected device -which can help keep you connected in an emergency or when you’re traveling. Make sure data protection is a key component of your end-of-year planning -it will help set up your business for success in the new year. • Mitigate your current tax burden: Understand your tax deductions and book all deduc-tions before the end of the year. Implement new tax strategies to mitigate your 2014 tax burden. Remember, all business models are different. Consider consulting an expert tax analyst to find out what’s best for your business. • Be social: Explore new avenues for advertising. Social media provides an easy and inex-pensive platform for gauging your customer’s desires, brand-ing and getting the word out about your product or service. There’s no time like the new year to reassess what’s work-ing for your company and what isn’t. Take the opportunity to set your company up for a suc-cessful 2014.3CBIZtronic databases,” she said.”We’re doing the same things, it’s just a little different format.” Although lots of information is based and stored in cloud-based applications, Paulson said the library maintains a modern, up-to-date book and magazine purchase program. “There are a lot of people who still prefer to use the book in their hands,” she said. “Sometimes it’s easier to find infor-mation in a book rather than [on] Google.” The library also provides the traditional collection of books, magazines, newspapers and periodicals. “People can also download e-books,” Paulson said. “We have different data-bases with different information. Doing genealogy searching is really popular right now and we have two databases that they can search for free.” The library also has an auto repair database for do it yourself mechanics. “We used to have all the big auto repair manuals, but we don’t buy those anymore,” Paulson said, noting library pa-trons can download the information they need. “The manuals took up so much space and now we can use that space for other things. Not having to buy those paged books every couple of years has really saved us a lot of space.” The Columbia County Library also allows residents who have limited or no computer access an opportunity to check on government programs that impact their lives such as the Affordable Care Act as well as unemployment benefits. The library offers an e-government pro-gram which allows the access. “E-government is an unfunded mandate,” Paulson said. “There are no longer any unemployment offices in Florida, so we have been helping people get online to be able to submit their unemployment applications and come back and submit their weeks. We don’t do it for them, but we try to help them get their food stamps and social security benefits. All these things now that people have to do online that they used to be able to call someone or go to an office and they can no longer do that.” The Columbia County Library also offers classes detailing how to use key-boards and computers, how to access their unemployment forms. “A lot of them don’t have any experience with computers,” Paulson said. Paulson said she and her staff familiarized themselves with the different applications, forms and formats so they would be able to help library visitors. “Now with the Affordable Care Act, staff attended seminars on how to access the information and helping people connected that’s what we’re really concerned with,” she said. “With the Affordable Care Act we wouldn’t help them decide what insurance plan they should go with, that’s stuff they need to do themselves, but we actually help them navigate the Website, which isn’t working very well at the moment.” The Columbia County Public Library System has approximately 27 computers in its three locations. Paulson said they library has information that residents can use as prospective employers or employees. “There are indexes online that people can use for businesses and try to get help on writing a business plan,” she said. Paulson said the library also utilizes information to help local residents who are seeking employment. “It’s just in general helping people learn where they can find a job,” she said. “A lot of jobs now you have to do an on-line application and a lot of people do not have experience using a computer and it’s a challenge for them.” LIBRARYContinued From 1A New year’s resolutions for small businesses StatePointSome simple tips can help your small business prosper. For starters, get – and keep – yourbooks in order. What to know when you work from home StatePointRule One when working from home: Stay focused. Technology reveals what kind of shopper you areBy ANNE FLAHERTYAssociated PressWASHINGTON — Advances in technology have never made finding deals this holiday season so easy — or so creepy. Marketers and mobile app developers have developed creative new ways to help shoppers find what they want for less. But these inventive techniques also allow for more aggressive tracking of consumer behavior, whether buyers are on their work computer, a mobile device or standing in the grocery aisle. It also now includes the ability to connect that data together and with other personal information like income, zip code and when a person’s car insurance expires. The goal is to monitor consumers online and off to determine exactly what kind of buyer they might be and how much they’re willing to pay. Retailers say these techniques help customize shopping expe-riences and can lead to good deals for shop-pers. Consumer advocates say aggressive tracking and profiling also opens the door to price discrimination, where companies might charge someone more online or deny them entirely based on their home price or how often they visit a site. “You can’t have Christmas any more without big data and marketers,” said Jeff Chester, executive director at the Center for Digital Democracy. “You know that song where Santa knows when you’ve been sleeping? He knows when you’re awake? Believe me, that’s where he’s get-ting his information from.” Consumer tracking has long been a part of American consumerism. Retailers push shop-pers to sign up for loyalty cards, register pur-chased items for warranty programs and note zip codes to feed their mailing lists. Online stores and advertising services employ browser “cookies,” the tiny bits of software code that can track a person’s movements across the Internet, to analyze shoppers and present them with relevant pop-up ads. More recently, marketers have developed increasingly sophisticated ways to combine offline and online data that cre-ates detailed profiles of shoppers. They also are perfecting location-tracking tech-nology as a means of attracting new cus-tomers and influencing shoppers as they wander through brick-and-mortar stores. A major push encourages shoppers to agree to be tracked in exchange for a good deal. Brick-and-mortar stores used to balk at customers who used smartphones to compare prices at rival stores, but retail-ers like Target are now pushing their own mobile apps and offering in-store Wi-Fi. The mobile apps entice shoppers with cou-pon deals or ads as they move throughout a store, while in-store Wi-Fi is another way to track a consumer’s online movements. To further lure buyers, major holiday retailers including, Macy’s, Best Buy and JCPenney, have partnered with the Shopkick mobile app. If shoppers turn on the app while in their store, they can be rewarded with discounts or song down-loads for trying on clothes, scanning bar-codes and making purchases. Another app, Snapette, blends American’s addiction to social media sites with location technology. Aimed at women keen on fashion, consumers can see what accessories or shoes are creating a buzz in their particular neighborhood, while stores get a chance to entice nearby shop-pers with ads or coupons. Not all new technology tracking is voluntary. Stores have been experimenting with heat sensors and monitoring cell-phone signals in their stores to monitor which aisles attract the most attention. One product called “Shopperception” uses the same motion-detection technology in the Xbox Connect to pick up a customer’s movement, including whether they picked up a product only to return it to the shelf. In addition to analyzing customer behav-ior, it can trigger nearby digital signs offering coupons and steering shoppers to certain products. The company contends that the technology is less intrusive than other tracking devices, including security cameras, because a person’s image is never stored and their movements only registered as a data point. Marketers also are learning to overcome limitations with software cookies. One tech startup called Drawbridge claims to have found a way to link a person’s lap-top and mobile device by analyzing their movements online, enabling advertisers to reach the same consumer whether they’re on their work computer or smartphone. But how all that information is used and where it ends up is still unclear. The Federal Trade Commission has been investigating companies that collect and sell information on individuals by pooling online habits with other information like court records, prop-erty taxes, even income.

LIFE Sunday, December 1, 2013 Section D Story ideas?ContactRobert Lake City Reporter1DLIFE TASTE BUDDIES Genie Norman and Mary Kay HollingsworthTastebBuddiesLakeCity@gmail.comT hanksgiving is over and it’s time to get serious about Christmas plans. Decorating, shopping, cooking, entertaining, etc., etc. reach a peak as the big day approaches. We all cook special foods for our Christmas meals so let us add some more special recipes to your collection. Christmas would never be complete without CANDY. So, candy it is for this column. As our readers know, Genie grew up in Homerville and her home was a holiday gathering place for lots of Normans. Two of her aunts would always arrive with their box of homemade can-dies that they opened with pride for everyone to see and enjoy. They were really works of art and perfection. Usually there was fondant, marsh-mallow balls, fudge, peanut butter fudge and candied grapefruit peel. (Ugh! Genie never liked that one. It tasted as bad as it sounds.) That box represented many hours of cooking, beating, roll-ing and drying of each piece. Today we are so used to just buying candy at Christmas that we don’t venture into making our own. Mary Kay, Genie and Pat Vanous (for-mer neighbor) began their own Christmas tradition by gathering in Genie’s kitchen a few days before Christmas to make candy for all three households and to have some fun time together. By the end of the afternoon the candy balls didn’t look as good as they did when we started which was prob-ably due to the cold duck consumed. Children and husbands stayed away and we had some great girl time. So, we want to share three of our favor-ites. We spread waxed paper over the kitchen table to hold all the piec-es until they dried. So, start with that. Many people make Buckeyes but here’s Pat’s recipe just in case you don’t have it. BuckeyesQ lb. softened margarineQ 1 cup peanut butter, crunchyQ 1 boxes 10 X sugar Q 1 Tbs. vanilla Q 12 oz. chocolate chips Q block of paraffin, shaved Instructions:Cream margarine and peanut butter. Add vanilla and sugar. When com-bined roll into balls. Melt chocolate and paraffin in a double boiler, keep warm. Dip each ball into the chocolate and lay on waxed paper to dry. Use Sweet, sweet tooth TASTE continued on 3D By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comThanksgiving is over, the family has left and the fridge is packed with turkey, cran-berry sauce, mashed potatoes and more. Every year, those leftovers become a blur of turkey sandwiches. But, a fresh take can turn those holiday odds and ends into a meal even better than the Thanksgiving feast. “Most of us cook more for Thanksgiving to ensure we will have leftovers,” said Genie Norman, the Lake City Reporter’s Taste Buddies columnist. “There’s so much going on with Black Friday and family gatherings for the holidays, so you don’t want to cook anymore.” According to Norman, there are all kinds of twists you can make to the leftovers to ensure they’re even more appetiz-ing. Some people even like the leftovers better, she added. For instance, she creates a unique sandwich by combining the turkey and the fresh — not canned — cranberry sauce on the bread, then using a panini press for added flair. She also said a shortcut is to make two pans of dressing on Thanksgiving day, then place the second pan in the fridge until the family wants a second meal. As she sits down to eat on the weekend after Thanksgiving, she warms the second batch to add fresh dressing to the meal without added labor. Recipes to reinvent Thanksgiving leftovers: Turkey Cranberry Pesto SaladPrep Time: 5 min(s) Cook Time: 1 min(s) Total Time: 6 min(s) Ingredients• 2 cups cooked turkey meat • 1/2 cup mayonnaise• 1/2 cup dried cranberries• 2 celery stalks, chopped • 1/4 cup chopped pecans • 3 tablespoons pesto • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper Instructions 1.

It’s one of my favorite places to visit. Recently there was a Realtor con-vention I attended and my in-laws live there, so it made for a nice and con-venient trip. I’ve been many times before and we tend to do a lot of the same things, like drive down to Half Moon Bay for dinner at the Chart House, except they are now closed. So this time we did some-thing new and when we drove down, Scott played golf at the Ritz Carlton courseit was a beauti-ful setting – also where they filmed American Wedding. While he golfed, Frank, his Dad, took me up to Nick’s, an old water-front diner where we shared crab cakes and cal-amari. Then he took me out to see the Mavericks. This is the surfing loca-tion outside Pillar Point Harbor where in the winter months the waves can crest between 25 and 80 feet and invitation only contests are held. It was a pretty awesome view, but you couldn’t see these waves this time of year and especially without binoculars as the surfers paddle out miles from the shore line when they attempt the ride. There’s a great walking/hiking trail not far from where we stay at Scott’s Dad’s house near the Presidio in Sea Cliff. It’s called Land’s End. What’s great about this trail are the views of the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge, the eucalyptus forest you walk through – I just want to stop and breathe in all of the air here, the cliffs overlook-ing the Pacific Ocean and the historic Cliffhouse and the old Sutro baths. We did this trail twice dur-ing the last stay. Another old stand-by are the world famous Sea Lions at Pier 39. We’ve visited here often and the sea lions never disappoint. They are always there put-ting on a show, barking and playing. The males seem to stand tall defend-ing their dock and it is fun to watch as another sea lion tries to get up on the dock to see the big guy knock him or her back off. This is often a high-light of the trip, followed by a nice meal at one of the many restaurants on the Pier. Our new activity on this trip was our morning walk across the Golden Gate Bridge. Now we’ve driven over it many times TRAVEL TALES Sandy KishtonEducational app helps parents track childrens’ behaviorAssociated PressDAYTONA BEACH — If the phone rings at the end of a school day, parents might already know why a teacher is calling. Thanks to a tool that allows teachers to com-municate instantaneously about what’s happening at school, parents can monitor their youngsters’ conduct via smartphone throughout the day. Several Flagler and Volusia county teachers use Class Dojo, a free web-site and app where students receive points for good behavior or lose points for misdeeds. Class Dojo was created using $75,000 from the 2011 Citi Innovation in Education Prize, awarded to entre-preneurs who use tech-nology to help educators. Hundreds of thousands of teachers worldwide now use Class Dojo, according to the website. Class Dojo is among a growing number of educa-tional apps — more than 40,000 are available for the iPad alone. One teacher who uses Class Dojo, Christina Claudio, said the program brings out her students’ competitive streaks because they want to earn more points they can redeem for free incentives, like using the teacher’s rolling desk chair or sitting with a friend for the day. “This generation of students, I feel, loves anything that’s ‘gamified’ — if it feels like a game, they’re in,” said Claudio, who teaches fourth-grade at Pine Trail Elementary in Ormond Beach. To help students feel more accountable, Claudio allowed them to customize their avatars. A savory way to change up your sweet potatoBy ELIZABETH KARMELAssociated PressAs much as I love mashed white potatoes, my favorite “potato” is the sweet variety. I’ve been cooking and eating sweet potatoes as long as I can remember. And when I found out that they were loaded with vita-mins and other good-for-you stuff like fiber, I imme-diately thought... Here’s a great excuse to eat sweet potato pie! Kidding aside, sweet potatoes are just as good if not better than traditional baking potatoes in savory applications. My favorite one-bowl meal in winter is a loaded baked potato. And I often make it with sweet potatoes. Around 5 p.m., I throw the potatoes in a 350 F oven. I find that a lower oven temperature keeps the skin from falling apart, allowing you to split the potato in half and load it up! However, it does take twice as long for the pota-toes to cook. This year, I have been topping my potato with sauteed kale, which not only looks stunning – all that orange and green – but also is a perfect complement to the sweet “meaty” potato. But that’s not all. I also roast garlic and make it into a paste to flavor the potato, folding in just a touch of butter and a pinch of sage. I scoop out half of the potato, mix it all together, add half the MATTHEW MEAD /Associated PressMake your sweet potato savory by adding garlic and chi ves.

2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1, 20132DLIFEBy JODY KURASHAssociated PressZIPOLITE, Mexico — “You’re going to like it here in Zipolite,” Daniel Weiner, the owner of Brisa Marina hotel said with a wry smile as he handed me the keys to my quar-ters. “You’re not going to want to leave in five days.” A few lazy days later, I began to realize why so many guests rent their rooms by the month. Whether it’s the laid-back vibe or the tranquil setting, Zipolite has a way of mak-ing people stay longer than expected. A sleepy town with one main street and no ATMs, Zipolite (pronounced ZEE-poe-LEE-tay) is one of many tiny coastal pueb-los that dot the Pacific in Mexico’s Southern state of Oaxaca. Stretching from Puerto Escondido to Huatulco, the region is sometimes called the Oaxaca Riviera. The hippie crowd discovered Zipolite in the 1960s and since then it has slowly evolved into an offbeat tourist spot popu-lar with a certain type of visitor. Its pristine beach stretches two kilome-ters (1.2 miles) between two high cliffs at either end, and the crowd is fairly evenly split between middle-class Mexicans and free-wheeling liberals from across the globe. Old hippies, young adventure-seekers, and locals all mingle with a flower-child type harmony. It feels light years away from the areas of Mexico that tourists now avoid due to drug violence. Not only has the U.S. State Department spared Oaxaca from its travel warnings about Mexico, but Zipolite in particular seems lost in time, a place where visitors think noth-ing of leaving their belong-ings unattended on the beach and backpackers sleep in hammocks strung along the coast. Zipolite also has a few claims to fame. The climactic beach scenes in the Mexican block-buster movie “Y Tu Mama Tambien,” were filmed here. And it’s gained noto-riety as one of Mexico’s few nude beaches, although the major-ity of sunbathers remain clothed. (Farther east, past an outcropping of rocks is the cove known as “Playa de Amor” where nudity is more openly practiced.) Mike Bolli, a retiree from Vancouver, Canada, says he has been visiting the area for the last 10 years without “accident, issue or injury.” “I have only ever met the nicest and friendliest eclectic mix of locals and visitors – it’s a great throw-back to the ‘60s,” Bolli said. “So it’s all good and safe from my viewpoint.” Zipolite has no highrise hotels. Many of the beachfront structures are thatched-roof palapas, umbrella-shaped huts with no walls. Brisa Marina itself started off as a wood-en structure with a palm roof, but after a major fire in 2001 that destroyed 23 buildings, Weiner rebuilt it with cement. Visitors expecting a party-all-night Cancun-like atmosphere with fishbowl-sized margaritas and wait-resses in bikinis passing out shots of tequila will be disappointed. There is a night life here, but it’s nothing like that. Instead, folks gather on the beach in an end-of-day ritual to watch the brilliant sunsets. Many restaurants and bars offer live music and enter-tainment. And the only paved road in town turns into a carnival-like scene at night, with artists and jew-elry makers selling their wares, while musicians, jugglers and fire dancers perform for tips in the street. “Zipolite after six is awesome,” Bolli said, “with all the dreadlocked kids hop-ing to sell their creations along with a great choice of different restaurants. It’s not overcrowded but you can find a crowd if you want.” Some of the most interesting diversions can found at Posada Mexico, an oceanfront restaurant. One night I watched a Cirque du Soleil-like acro-batic performance and another night I rocked out to Cainn Cruz, an amazing child guitar prodigy who brought the house down with his covers of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC. Adding to the groovy ambience is Shambhala, a spiritual retreat perched high on a hill in a bucolic setting. Tourists are welcome to hike up the resort*s stair pathway where a meditation point sits atop a cliff overlook-ing the Pacific. Shambhala advertises the “Loma de Meditacion” as a sacred location where visitors may experience a higher consciousness and oneness with nature. The cen-ter rents rustic cabins and hosts visiting artists and healers. The name Zipolite is said to derive from indig-enous languages. Some sources say it means “bumpy place,” a refer-ence to the local hills, and other sources translate it as “beach of the dead,” a reference to strong ocean currents. The beach has volunteer lifeguards and areas with dangerous cur-rents are marked with red flags. Weiner, who has a deep tan, a working uniform of board shorts and flip-flops, and a crusty, carefree sense of humor, splits his time between California and Zipolite. He’s owned his hotel since 1997 and estimates that about 50 percent of his guests are repeat customers. “This gets us through swine flu times, protests, drug war scares, etc.,” he said. “People come back knowing we are OK, and they tell their friends too.” And sometimes they have a hard time leaving. As Weiner predicted, after a few days in Zipolite, I called the airline to change my flight. I had to stay another week.

Tag readers are solving state’s crimesBy JOSE PATINO GIRONAAssociated PressTAMPA— The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office recently got a tip a stolen vehi-cle had been seen near the University of South Florida. Investigators sent deputies to the area, found the car and arrest-ed the two men inside. Both were charged with grand theft auto. The tip didn’t come from an alert citizen. It came from a tag reader that reads license plates from passing vehicles, a process similar to the one used to bill motorists on toll roads in Tampa Bay and throughout the state. Unlike that system, though, the sheriff’s office tag reader sends the license plate information through the National Crime Information Center and Florida Crime Information Center databases. If a “hit” arises a stolen car, say, or a car registered to some-one with an outstanding arrest warrant the system flags that information for deputies. The tag reader is the latest weapon in a grow-ing arsenal of high-tech devices used by law enforcement agencies throughout the country. Police departments and sheriff’s offices say the system’s ability to pro-cess thousands of license plates a day is an effec-tive, low-cost way of solv-ing car thefts and catch-ing criminals. The notion, though, that the government is capturing information about the whereabouts of thousands of law-abiding motorists every day has raised privacy concerns. The growing popularity of tag readers prompt-ed the American Civil Liberties Union to con-duct a national study on the issue this summer. “The real problem is what happens with that data that they collected about you,” said Florida ACLU spokesman Baylor Johnson. “Who then has access to that data? If you have done nothing wrong, there is no reason they should keep that data.” Hillsborough County’s tag reader consists of two cameras installed on a pole at 15th Street and 122nd Avenue and has been in use for about a year.

DEAR ABBY: I am ready to explode. My father-in-law dotes on my 16-year-old daughter, who is his only grandchild. The biggest issue, aside from his overspending, is that he takes her to and from school every day and then expects to stay and visit. I have neither the time nor the inclination to sit and chitchat with him about the same old stuff over and over. My husband doesn’t want to be involved. (He doesn’t get home until after his father has left, any-way.) It would probably end up in a nasty fight. I want to politely make “Dad” understand that he doesn’t need to come in every single day. I know he will think we are being negative or against him personally, and from past events, I don’t want to come across in this manner. Please help. — TOO MUCH OF A “GOOD” THING IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR TOO MUCH: Obviously, your father-in-law doesn’t have enough going on in his life to fill his time. Things won’t change until you manage to set some boundaries. It would not be “negative against him” if you had to go out and run errands or your daugh-ter had to do homework after she gets home from school. It would also not be negative, since you don’t have time to sit and chat, to ask him to pitch in and help with the chores. You might also suggest that he do some volunteer work to fill his time. But you will have to schedule a time for him to feel welcome -perhaps a Sunday dinner -when your husband is home and can help to entertain his father.Adult son won’t rent a car when visitingDEAR ABBY: We are the parents of two adult children. We have always lived below our means so we could save for college expenses and retirement. Now that our two sons have finished college (with no debt), we splurged and purchased two luxury vehicles. Our oldest son, “Sam,” lives in another state but comes into town for busi-ness and pleasure, and when he does, he wants to borrow one of our cars. Although Sam has a good driving record, we are hesitant to loan him one of them. He is no longer on our car policy and can well afford to rent a car. Sam is upset with us and says from now on he will stay with friends. I offered to share the rental expense, but my husband said Sam is an adult now and responsible for his own expenses. Are we being unreason-able by not letting him borrow one of our cars? — CONFLICTED IN DALLAS DEAR CONFLICTED: You have been generous with your children. Many students finish college with a mountain of debt. It appears that Sam is less interested in what you have done for him than what you WILL do. He’s acting like a spoiled brat, and I hope you will stick to your guns because your husband is right. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t take on too much. Spending on unneces-sary luxury items will cause stress. Do what you can to rearrange or fix up your per-sonal space on a shoestring. Your surroundings will have an impact on your emotional outlook. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Make plans and follow through. You have the energy and the know-how to make a big splash no matter what you decide to pursue. Romance looks inviting and will definitely spice up your life. Explore new pos-sibilities and living arrange-ments. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): An interesting partnership will develop suddenly. Don’t pass up an opportu-nity to work with someone who has as much to offer you as you have in return. What you learn and the information you pick up will be valuable. +++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Plan to have fun. Socialize or invite friends over. Your hospitality will encourage love, romance and a closer relationship with the people you enjoy being with the most. A change in your living arrangements will bring you peace and happi-ness. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t give in to demands. Do whatever encourages you to be and do your best. A trip or visiting someone who you find comforting will put your mind at ease as well as help you find solutions to any dilemmas you face. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Dive into new projects with an open mind. Talks will lead to interesting input and the possibility of a part-nership that can help you out substantially. Romance is looking good, and plans to spice up your life are encouraged. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t let things fester. Address issues before you get to the point of no return. Too much of anything will lead you down a dark path. Address issues swiftly and keep moving until you finish what you start. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Expand your interests and indulge in guilty pleasures. Do some-thing that sparks your imagination and which will contribute to a meaningful relationship you have with someone who has talents that meld well with what you have to offer. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Stick to the directions you’ve been given or rules implemented if you are working with others or if you’ve been given a task that requires precision. Don’t push your luck with author-ity figures or exaggerate in order to win favors. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t feel you have to make a fast deci-sion. Your judgment will be accurate. Mixing business with pleasure will allow you to connect with someone you want to collaborate with in the future. A love relation-ship will be emotionally and financially beneficial. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Don’t take what others say or do person-ally. Listen carefully and be attentive, but follow through with your plans and make the changes that you feel work best for you. Personal matters are best kept secret for the time being. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): You’ll be attracted to something or someone who is very dif-ferent from what you have been accustomed to in the past. Personal changes will be encouraged by what you see and hear. Romance will improve a relationship that means a lot to you. +++++ Abigail Van THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Parade organizer6 Fake11 One-named singer with the hit/RFNHG8S 15 Pat gently5HFLSHDPRXQWBBBPDPDWURSLFDO drink) 20 Belittling*UHHWLQJV0V 5HWWRQ 24 Orwellian state25 Right angle7XUNH\LVQWRQH2QHZKRVGRQHWKH ,GRV BBBIXUWKHUUHYLHZ 29 Handle again?9HU\QLFH0V .HQQHG\ (LJKWIRUVWDUWHUV"0DUFKRUJ"$GPLUDOVLQLWV+XUU\XS0V %UHQQDQ /LWWOHELUGLHRU/LNHVRPHTXHHQV6SRUWVOHDJXH EDFNHGFDEOHnetwork 0DUNHWPDNHXS $EEU 6XPPHUPRQWKLQ France .LQGRIFDW)HDWXUHRI2]V :LFNHG:LWFKRIthe West &KHHUXS0V 7HDVGDOH $GYDQFHGGHJ58 Bearded one59 Title character in an $$0LOQHSOD\ 61 Person who holds SURSHUW\LQWUXVW $P,WKHRQH0V $QGUHZV" 6tDWVHD69 Shorties+XUUDK6FXEDWDQNPHDV
