By LINDA YOUNG

Members of the Lake City City Council know
they have to bring the City Hall building up to
handicapped accessible codes but the question
is which codes.
During its meeting 'Monday night, council
members had a lengthy discussion before final-
ly approving a resolution to adopt a transition
plan to increase handicapped accessibility in the
building: A transition plan is required as a con-
dition for grants the

S Harvey Campbell, vice-
chairman of the Downtown
Action Corporation, said the
parade was called off at 2 p.m.
Monday.
"We checked the weather at
8 a.m. and 11 a.m., and it
looked like the parade was still
possible" for Monday night,
Campbell said. "At 2 p.m., with


the tornado warnings near
Tallahassee, we decided to
cancel it."
Campbell said parade par-
ticipants have put too much
work into the parade, and the
bad weather would have dis-
tracted both participants and
parade watchers.
"We're trying to make the


best situation out of a bad sce-

rescheduling the parade for
Tuesday night. 'Tuesday night

Saddam Hussein addresses the
court during his trial held under
tight security in Baghdad's heavily
fortified Green Zone on Monday.

Hussein:

I am not

afraid of

execution

Witnesses describe
torture in former
Iraqi president's trial.
By HAMZA HENDAWI
Associated Press
BAGHDAD, Iraq - The first
witnesses in the Saddam Hussein
trial offered chilling accounts
Monday of killings and torture
using electric shocks and a
grinder during a 1982 crackdown
against Shiites, as the defiant ex-
president threatened the judge
and tried to intimidate a survivor.
One witness said he saw a
machine that "looked like a
grinder" with hair and blood on it
in a secret police center in
Baghdad where he and others
were tortured for 70 days. He said
detainees were kept in "Hall 63."
But defense lawyers ques-
tioned the reliability of witnesses
who were only 15 and 10 at the
time and walked out of the tumul-
tuous session when the judge
refused to allow former
U.S. Attorney General Ramsey
Clark to address the court on
Saddam's behalf. They returned
after the judge relented.
Saddam and his seven co-defen-
dants could be hanged if convict-
ed on charges stemming from the
deaths of more than
140 Shiites in the town of Dujail
after an assassination attempt in
1982.
"I am not afraid of execution,"
Saddam proclaimed at one point.
"Why don't you just execute us
and get rid of all of this," Ibrahim
shouted at the judge.


Prominent woman remembered as a'loyal friend'

Bishop died at
home on Sunday.
She was 84.

By LINDA YOUNG
lyoung@lakecityreporter.com
Virginia Hodges Bishop will
be remembered as a pioneer
among women in Columbia
County and as a good person.
Bishop was 84 when she
died at home early Sunday
morning under hospice care
because of cancer. Her hus-
band W. Emerson Bishop had
died in 1990 after developing
Alzheimer's . disease, her


daughter Diane White said.
S"My mother was an accom-
plished person. She thought
she could do anything she set
her mind to," White said. "She
taught me a good bit about
being a loyal friend. She was a
loyal friend to many people."
Bishop and her husband
had started Coldwell Banker
Bishop Realty, Inc. in 1955 and
with her husband serving in
the state legislature in
Tallahassee, Bishop did some-
thing unusual for the time, she
ran the business.
Other unusual things fol-
lowed as a result.
"She was on the board of
the Chamber of Commerce


years ago. I do know she was
one of the pioneer ladies in
stepping forward and taking a
leadership role in this commu-
nity and I would say she
earned the respect that she
truly deserved. I know that
she was early on in the real
estate field and she held some
offices in she state real estate
and was one of the first women
to do that if not one of the
first," said Lake
City/Columbia County
Chamber of Commerce
Executive Director Jim Poole.
"She'll be missed. She really
made a difference in the com-
munity. She had the ear of gov-
ernors, especially Lawton


Chiles," Poole said. "She could
pick the telephone up and get
them directly on the phone
without going through an
aide."
Bishop had pull with gover-
nors because her husband
served with several of them in
the Florida Senate before they
became governors. And
Bishop used her connections
to help others.
"She was a front-runner -
she never tried to overpower
or be the star of the show. She
just quietly went about getting
done what needed to be done,"
Poole said.
BISHOP continued on 12A

Hurricane Epsilon
slows in Atlantic
MIAMI -A tenacious
Hurricane Epsilon
strengthened slightly
Monday as it lingered in the
open Atlantic, posing no
threat to land.
The 26th named storm of a
record-breaking hurricane
season had top sustained
winds near 80 mph,
according to the National
Hurricane Center in Miami.
Despite being in cooler
waters, Epsilon "refuses to
weaken,",hurricane specialist
Lixion Avila said. "It means
we still have a lot to learn
about hurricanes."
But it was expected to turn
southwest to areas with
higher disruptive wind shear
oier the next day or two, he
said, and "once it starts
moving to the southwest, it's
going to die."
The storm had been
downgraded. early Sunday to
a tropical storm with
sustained winds of 70 mph
but unexpectedly regained
hurricane strength. Epsilon
first reached hurricane
strength Friday and is the
14th hurricane of the season.

G(f vcvmcm,


At 4-p.m. EST, the center of
Epsilon's large eye was about.
510 miles west-southwest of
the Azores and moving east
near 3 mph, down from
8 mph earlier.
The Atlantic hurricane
season began June 1 and
officially ended on
Wednesday.
Epsilon was only the
fifth hurricane to form in
December in more than
150 years of records, the
hurricane center said. The
latest that a hurricane has
formed in the Caribbean was
Dec. 30, in 1954.

The tornado was initially
spotted at 12:34 p.m. in
Liberty County and moved
northeast into Wakulla,
southern Leon County and
then Jefferson County, where
it dissipated about 2 p.m.,
said National Weather
Service forecaster Jennifer
McNatt.
That path kept in almost.
entirely within the
Apalachicola National Forest,
reducing the chances for
property damage.
The tornado preceded a
front that then brought a line
of showers and
thunderstorms into the
eastern Florida Panhandle,
McNatt said.

Girl, 8, recovering
after mishap
MIAMI - An 8-year-old girl
was recovering Sunday after
slipping from her seat on a
spinning carnival ride.
SElianny Rodriguez remained
hospitalized with head trauma,
a broken arm and serious cuts
and bruises, her father told
The Miami Herald.
.The girl fell Saturday from
the Gee Wizz ride set up at a
carnival in the parking lot of a
Little Havana dog track.
"I had to watch her fall, and
I could not do anything,"
Eutiquiano Rodriguez said.
Witnesses said the ride's
restraining harnesses
suddenly became loose, and
Elianny slipped from under
the security bar across her
waist and fell before the
operator could hit the ride's
emergency stop, Miami Fire
Rescue spokesman Ignatius
Carroll said.
"She must have fallen about
20 feet," Carroll said.
Five other children and
three adults were also injured,
authorities said.
Inspectors from the state
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services said
the ride would remain closed
until the cause of the accident
could be determined.

Guardian ad Litem shows



office programs to residents


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
While Christmas carols
filled the rooms in a
U.S. 90 office building
Monday night, it was clear the
people in the office were
there for another purpose
other than the music.
As office visitors mingled,
talked and ate hors d' oeu-
vres, their conversations often
centered around providing
services for children - the
reason for the after hours
gathering.
Monday evening, the
Columbia County Guardian
ad Litem office had an open
house so community mem-
bers could visit the new office
and learn more about
Guardian ad Litem services.
"The open house has been
wonderful," said Debbie
Kinsey, director of the Third
Judicial Circuit Guardian ad
Litem program. "We tried to
open up to the community to
make sure people know what
the Guardian ad Litem pro-
gram is. We also want people
to associate us with Voices

sional staff providing a voice
on behalf of Florida's abused
and neglected children.
The Guardian ad Litem pro-
gram has been in Columbia


County gince 1985 and has
been a part of the state pro-
gram for 25 years.
The local Guardian ad
Litem program has shifted
locations three times in the
last three years, but Kinsey
said the new office has more
than enough room.
"We have moved so many
times. When we first started, I
think they put us in every
large closet in the courthouse
and we moved four or five


times there and two locations
outside the courthouse," she
said. "This is the first time
we've been in some place
where we can bring all the
volunteers in, train them and
have handicapped accessible
offices. We're real excited and
we hope the volunteer base
will increase."
The agency is staffed by
nine people and has
33 Columbia County volun-
teers and is hoping to get
another 25-30 local volunteers
to work with the children.
Last year, during
December, the local Guardian
ad Litem program was
appointed on 1,138 children's
cases in its seven county
coverage area.
"We're already over
100 children above that and
it's only the first of
December," Kinsey said.
"Here in Columbia County it's
the same thing. We have
347 children on our case load
here in Columbia County -
all of them with special needs
and a lot of them are in foster
homes and many of them will
be put up for adoption."


Heeke recipient of prestigious forestry award


By TONY BRITT

North Central Florida is
one of the more rural areas of
the state with lots of forests,
springs, plants and other
natural resources.
As the region's population
continues to increase, natural
resources in the area will con-
tinue to be taxed to support
the growth.
The Suwannee River Water
Management District is the
state agency in charge of pro-
tecting and maintaining local
natural resources and Bob
Heeke, the agency's senior
land resources manager,
received an award for forestry
work in the Water
Management District's
16-county area, whose


population continues to
increase.
As the
Suwannee
River Water
Manage hee
m e n t
District's j
senior land
resources Heeke
manager,
Heeke is tasked with oversee-
ing the management of more
than 150,000 acres of public
lands and conservation ease-
ments.
According to Water
Management District reports,
Heeke's job. duties include
managing staff; and contract
workers who perform a vari-
ety of resource-management
activities including timber
harvesting and sales,


prescribed burns and refor-
estation. Heeke was instru-
mental in the Water
Management District becom-
ing the first Florida agency
licensed under the
Sustainable Forestry
Initiative.
During the October
Planting Seeds for
Sustainable Forestry conven-
tion in Savannah, Heeke
received an award for excel-
lence in the general practice
of forestry.
"I was very pleased that
Bob received the award," said
Charlie Houder, Suwannee
River Water Management
District deputy executive
director. "I've known Bob
about 20 years and he's one of
the finest foresters I've
known. I think Bob can really


be proud of the land manage-
ment program, that he has
helped to build at the
Suwannee River Water
Management District."
It's believed this is the first
time someone from the
Suwannee River Water
Management District has won
the prestigious award.
'This is an award that is
presented by the Society of
American Foresters for the
Southeastern region, for
Georgia, Florida and
Alabama," Houder said. "I'm
almost 100 percent positive no
one from this agency as ever
won it before."
Heeke, 48, is the son of Bob
and Joyce Heeke of Lake City,
and is a High Springs
resident. He is married and
has. two sons.

Man dies in car wreck,

possibly of heart attack


By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.com .

A Lake City man died early
Sunday in a wreck the Florida
Highway Patrol believes may
have been caused by his
medical problems.
Hugh Leonard Stratton,
58, of Lake City, was found in
his 2002 Nissan Pickup at
approximately 5:02 a.m., in
the wooded area off the
southbound side of Interstate
75 near mile marker 408.
According to FHP reports,
a witness noticed the car on
the side of the road and
stopped to check on the
driver of the vehicle. The wit-
ness said Stratton was
unresponsive and Columbia
County' EMS was called.
Stratton was pronounced
dead at the scene.
FHP reports indicate
Stratton suffered no physical


injuries and there was only
minor damage to the right
headlight of the vehicle. The
vehicle was still running and
all of its lights were on when
it was found.
Stratton was not wearing a
seat belt at the time of the
crash.
Alcohol is not suspected as
a cause of the crash.
FHP. reports indicate a
medical problem may have
contributed to the wreck, as a
heart-condition history was
mentioned in the report.
"Preliminary investigation
reveals the wreck may be
medically related," said Lt.
Mike Burroughs, public infor-
mation officer for Troop B of
the Florida Highway Patrol.
"We are currently waiting on
the results from the Medical
Examiner's Office in
Jacksonville."

Concerns


with death


penalty


verifying what most of us
have long suspected:
Innocent persons have been
put to death in this country
for crimes they didn't commit. We
probably will never know how many of
the nearly 1,000 executed since 1976:
when capital punishment was reinstated
by the Supreme Court were not actually
guilty of the crimes for.which they were
convicted. But just one would be
excessive.
Does this mean the penalty should be
abolished entirely? More and more
Americans seem to think so, according
to recent polls that show
support for the supreme punishment
has declined from three-fourths to
two-thirds in the wake of increasing
doubts about mistakes. That number
drops to close to 50 percent when the
alternative of life in prison without
parole is suggested.
There is no arguing that in any
number of death-penalty cases, juries,
judges, prosecutors-and defense
attorneys have shown a fallibility that is
frightening in its implications. Juries are
easily manipulated by slick prosecutors
looking for new scalps; many judges on
the local level, where most of the
murder cases are tried, reveal an
amazing ignorance about reasonable
doubt and qther safeguards; anddefense
attorneys too often give capital cases for
which they frequently are paid very
little a mere swipe of jurisprudence,
There are no easy answers. Capital
punishment in many ways is as barbaric
as the crime committed. Yet some form
of it seems absolutely necessary to
maintaining law and order..

Good deeds for springs


about the bad
actors that are
causing harm to
our treasured
natural resources. However,
the Ichetucknee Springs Basin
Working Group looks for
individuals, businesses or
agencies that are doing good
things for Ichetucknee
Springs.
Since the working group's
objective is to protect the
waters flowing to Ichetucknee
Springs from as far north as
Lake City, there are lots of
opportunities for citizens to
perform good deeds. A
number of local Ichetucknee
Springs champions have been
recognized for their good
deeds since the working
group was formed in 1995.
The first springs champion
to be recognized was Lester
Scaff, president of S&S Food
Stores in Lake City. An S&S
convenience store located
along Clayhole Creek was
exempted by state regulations
from having to manage
stormwater on the premises.
However, upon learning that
the waters of Clayhole Creek
flow underground through
sinkholes and eventually
reach Ichetucknee Springs,
Lester Scaff constructed a
stormwater retention pond to
capture the stormwater from
his store. By taking this action
with no regulatory
requirement, and at his own
expense, Mr. Scaff was
awarded the Pristine River
Award by the Ichetucknee
Springs Basin Working Group
and the Eco-leadership Award
by the Department of
Environmental Protection.
The Columbia Livestock
Market is located along
Clayhole Creek. Thousands of
livestock pass through this
facility each year and during
their stay deposit a large
amount: of waste. Although he
did not know of the
connection of Clayhole Creek
to Ichetucknee Springs,
owner, John Willis
constructed a set of holding
ponds that keeps the wastes
from entering Clayhole Creek.
He was not required by state
regulations to construct these
ponds but he voluntarily did
so at his own expense to
protect the creek. The Florida
Springs Task Force presented

Award to Mr. Willis at a
Florida Springs Conference in
Gainesville.
Rose Creek flows into Rose
Sink located at the
intersection of SR 47 and
CR 240 in Columbia City. Dye-
trace studies have confirmed
that the water flows from Rose
Sink to Ichetucknee Springs,
6 miles to the south, at the
rate of at least a mile a day. A
team of cave divers is
exploring and mapping the
cave that conducts this water
to determine its location
beneath the Ichetucknee
Trace. They have explored as
far as a mile south of Rose
Sink, at times squeezing
through narrow openings in
the limestone. They must
swim against the current as
they return to Rose Sink
which increases the risk of
this precarious exploration.
Lake City businessman Lamar
Hires, owner of Dive Rite Inc.,
is the dive team leader. The
Florida Springs Task Force
presented Lamar the Florida
Springs Exploration Award.
If you have visited the
Ichetucknee headspring
recently, you may have
noticed the spring water is
bluer and the spring is deeper
than a decade ago. Through
interviews with.local old
timers it was learned that
there were attempts in the
past to plug the spring using
dynamite and by bulldozing
concrete and rocks into the
spring vent. In 1997, the state
park began a headspring
restoration project under the
coordination of Park Ranger
Rick Hughes. Tons of
limerock, sand and debris
have been removed from the
spring - by hand - during
the past eight years. The
original depth and shape of
the spring have been restored
and the flow from the spring'
vent is now unimpeded. The
Florida Springs Task Force
presented Hughes the Florida
Springs Stewardship Award.

Local citizens were not
aware of the geographic
location of the Ichetucknee
Springs Basin. The '
Ichetucknee Springs Basin
Working Group felt it
important to inform those who
live and work in the basin
about its location to enhance
protection of the water flowing
to the springs. The
Department of Transportation
District 2 Office in Lake City
is a member of the
Ichetucknee Springs Basin
Working Group. At the
request of the working group,
DOT installed "Ichetucknee
Springs Basin" signs on the
major roads crossing the
basin. DOT also discontinued
the application of 32 tons of
nitrogen fertilizer on the
major roads that cross the
spring basin in order to
reduce the quantity of nitrates
flowing to the springs.
Furthermore, DOT agreed to
construct a stormwater
retention pond at Rose Sink to
stop contaminated stormwater
from flowing into the sink and
then to Ichetucknee Springs.
Construction of the retention
pond should be under way
before 2006. The Florida
Springs Task Force presented
the DOT District 2 Office the
Florida Springs Protection
Award.
These Ichetucknee Springs
champions acted for the
greater good. Their
contributions not only
benefited Ichetucknee Springs
but also the drinking water of
hundreds of families that live
between Lake City and the
springs. The working group
would like to honor other
individuals, businesses, and
agencies in Lake City and
Columbia County that are
going the extra mile for the
Ichetucknee.
We are looking for
examples.such as
demonstrations of
environmentally sensitive
development; farmers who
fence their cattle and
homeowners who install
native plants that don't require
fertilizer.

COMMENTARY



Plant idea


did not


develop

f Gary Dahl could do it, why couldn't
we? You see, I'm sitting here thumbing
through a love letter I wrote 21 years
ago. Unfortunately the relationship died.
It never even got out of the ground.
But Gary Dahl did it. He invented the Pet
Rock, a "useless dumb joke," someone called
it. And he made a fortune.
First he
wrote the Pet
Rock Training 9 "
Manual,

Jane and
Michael Stern ,.
as a
"step-by-step Phil Hudgins
guide to having phudgins@cninewspopers.com
a happy rela-
tionship with
your
geological pet, including how to make it roll
over and play dead and how to house-train it."
In just a few months, Dahl sold a million
rocks. Each was wrapped in excelsior inside a
gift box shaped like a pet carrier. Each rock
cost a penny. It sold for $3.95. Dahl got a
dollar for every rock sold. He was an instant
millionaire.
People gave $3.95 for a simple pebble, but
they never got the opportunity to fall in love
with our product: the Share-A-Plant.
Actually the idea belonged to a friend, Jim
Reid of Lula, Ga. Jim was going through a bad
relationship at the time, so to salve his
heartache, he proposed selling a few
thousand spider plants as symbols of human
relationships. He asked me to write copy for a
manual.
'The Share-A-Plant will mean whatever you
want it to mean," the fr.it and only draft said.
"It will be what you want it to be. If you
nurture and love it, it will thrive and -
reproduce. It will be a symbol of the growing
relationship and love we have for each other.
If you neglect it completely, the Share-A-Plant
will reflect that neglect."
You wouldn't want to send that message to
just anybody, of course. The newspaper
carrier might get the wrong idea. But if you
were in a serious relationship with, say, your
spouse, you might give it a try.
The producer would be called,
appropriately, The Mother Plant Company,
which would guarantee the plant's survival. If
you didn't want it to survive, however, you
could destroy it, the manual said, "by placing
the plant in your freezer overnight, leaving it
outside in the frost or stomping it."
Now, before a militant gardener cuts my
tires, let me explain: I would never treat a
plant that way unless it was a weed. But we
were desperate in 1984 when this deadly
prose crawled from my home typewriter and
onto an unsuspecting page.
Actually I think the Share-A-Plant held
promise. It could have been a wonderful
symbol of love in hundreds of homes or, even
better than the Pet Rock, a faithful, living
companion that would never leave its socks in
the middle of the floor.
Today we are willing to share our
Share-A-Plant. So, assuming some other
brilliant entrepreneur hasn't patented a similar
product, feel free to steal Jim Reid's idea and
run with it.
But if it succeeds, please don't tell us.

AP Business Writer

INDIANAPOLIS -
Boston Scientific Corp. made
an unexpected, $25 billion
takeover offer Monday for
the troubled medical device
maker Guidant Corp., more
than $3 billion more than
what Johnson & Johnson
agreed to pay for Guidant last
month.
Guidant shares climbed
more than 8 percent in mid-
day trading. But two analysts
questioned whether J&J will
sweeten its bid.
Boston Scientific, which
makes heart devices, offered
in a letter to Guidant's chair-
man to pay a combination of
cash and stock worth about
$72 per Guidant share. It said
that is nearly 14 percent
above Friday's value of J&J's
revised cash-and-stock deal
for Guidant.
The offer comes nearly a
year after J&J said it would
buy the Indianapolis medical-
device maker for
$25.4 billion. But J&J cut its
offer by nearly $4 billion after
a series of product recalls by


Guidant, and Guidant man-
agement accepted the lower
price last month.
Boston Scientific execu-
tives said the prospect of
entering the lucrative $10 bil-
lion market for implantable
pacemakers and defibrilla-
tors by purchasing Guidant


outweighs the legal risks
posed by Guidant's recent
problems.

have been some recent
issues, but we believe they

Behave or else: Cafe sign stirs


debate on children's behavior

CHICAGO - Dan
McCauley had seen one too
many kids at his cafe lying on
the floor in front of the count-
er, careening off the glass pas-
try case, coming perilously
close to getting their fingers
pinched in the front door. So
he posted a sign: "Children of
all ages have to behave and
use their indoor voices."
To him, it was a ,simple
reminder to parents ,to. keep
an eye on their children and
set some limits. But to some
parents in his North Side
Chicago neighborhood, the
sign may as well have read, "If
you have kids, you're not
welcome."
That one little notice,
adorned with pastel hand
prints, has become a lightning
rod in a larger debate over
parenting and misbehaving
children.
"It's not about the kids,"
says McCauley, the 44-year-
old owner, of A Taste of

public, while e-mailers have
been forwarding a photo-
graph of a sign in an unidenti-
fied business that reads,
"Unattended Children Will Be
Given an Espresso and a
Puppy."
While it is common policy
for upscale restaurants to bar
children, owners of other
types of businesses also are
setting limits on kids.
The Wynn Hotel in Las
Vegas, for instance, does not
allow .visitors who aren't
guests to have strollers; hotel
officials say it is to prevent
crashes with other pedestri-
ans. The Bellagio Hotel does
not take guests younger than
18 without special permission.
Some parents are fine with
the limit-setting and complain
that too many of their peers
take their kids to places tradi-
tionally meant for adults, such
as late-night movies and rock
concerts.

Bird lovers cry foul about the


destruction of parakeets' nests


By PAT EATON-ROBB
Associated Press
HARTFORD, Conn. -
Julie Cook came home from
work Wednesday night to find
utility crews tearing down a
parakeet nest from a pole and
taking the birds away to be
killed.
"I couldn't NOT do any-
thing," said the 37-year-old
West Haven woman. "So I
started yelling at them and
standing under the nest."
Cook was arrested on a
breach-of-peace charge.
Bird lovers delighted by the
chattering and the brilliant
green-and-gray markings of
Connecticut's wild parakeets
are upset about an effort by
United Illuminating Co. to
remove 103 large nests from
its utility poles and destroy
the birds.
The utility, which serves


about 320,000 customers in
southern Connecticut, says
the 200-pound nests of sticks
and twigs cause fires and
blackouts.
The monk parakeets, which
are actually small parrots
native to South America, start-
ed establishing colonies in the
wild across the Northeast
about 40 years ago after pet
owners accidentally or delib-
erately released them. There
are also colonies in Florida
and elsewhere in the South
and in the West.
In Connecticut, where the
communal nests are home to
as many as 40 parakeets each,
United, Illuminating captures
the pigeon-size birds with a
net and turns them over to the
U.S. Department of
Agriculture, which kills them
with carbon dioxide.
"We've lived with these
birds since we moved here


eight years ago," Cook said.
"We love them. They are exot-
ic and beautiful. Me and my
neighbors, we feed these
birds."
Priscilla Feral, president of
Friends of Animals, said:
'This is a $125,000 senseless
and immoral project. There is
no crime that these lovely
birds have committed that
would warrant their senseless
killing."
More than 130 of the
pigeon-sized birds have been
killed in the first weeks of the
eradication project, which
began last month. United
Illuminating hopes to have all
the nests down in January.
Four fires during the past
four years and about a dozen
outages per year are blamed
on the nests, which can cause
a short-circuit if built too close
to a transformer, utility
spokesman Al Carbone said.

Woman's obsession led to discovery of grave


By M.R. KROPKO
Associated Press
AKRON, Ohio - The Ohio
woman who found the bodies
of two missing New
Hampshire children said
Monday she had been search-
ing with her dog for months on
a personal mission that her
friends and family considered
an obsession.
.Stephanie Dietrich, a gro-
cery store cashier, said she
was motivated to look for Sarah
Gehring, 14, and her brother


Philip, 11, by their mother's
public plea for help.
The children's father,
Manuel Gehring, shot them to
death in 2003 and told authori-
ties he buried the bodies some-
where along a 700-mile stretch
of Interstate 80 across the
Midwest. He gave investiga-
tors several details about the
spot but said he could not
remember the location, then
committed suicide in jail before
a trial.
Dietrich, 44, said she went


out searching with her dog
more than 40 times since July
near her Akron home because
of clues suggesting the
gravesite could be in the
region. Investigators had con-
cluded in 2004 that pollen
found on dirt on Gehring's
minivan and shovel suggested
that the soil most likely came
from northeastern Ohio.
Last Thursday, Dietrich was
looking in the well-to-do sub-
urb of Hudson for things like
tall grass, sewer pipes and a
wood pile that the father


described when her 101-pound
mixed breed dog, Ricco,
stopped in the woods and "just
laid down and started looking
at me."
Dietrich said she saw a small
mound with twigs covering it
She started digging, came
upon a plastic bag and pulled
out what appeared to be part of
a cross made of willow twigs
and duct tape. She called police
on her cell phone, and the chil-
dren's bodies were removed
from a shallow grave.

DERMATOLOGY









TANNING ADDICTION

According to researchers, there
are some people who are actually
addicted to tanning. This finding
may help explain why, despite
widespread campaigns that alert
people to the dangers of ultraviolet
(UV) radiation, many people
continue to sunbathe or use tanning
booths. When researchers recently
asked beach goers a series of
questions derived from question-
naires originally used to identify
alcohol or drug abuse, they found
that 26 percent to 53 percent of the
beach goers could be classified as
UV-tanning-dependent. Other
studies have suggested that tanning
increase (brain) endorphin
production, which could be
addictive. The secretion of
endorphins leads to feelings of
euphoria. This could explain why
educational interventions have not
been more successful.
Over time, the effects of too much
UV exposure can lead to eye
damage, changes in your immune
system, cataracts, wrinkles and
premature aging of the skin, and
skin cancer. A safe alternative to
tanning salons is to use a bronzing
spray or lotion. To schedule an
appointment for dermatology care,
call GAINESVILLE DERMATO-
LOGY & SKIN SURGERY. Our
office is conveniently located at 114
N.W. 76th Drive and we can be
reached by calling 352-332-4442.
New Patients are welcome.
P.S. Changing the tanning
behavior of teens is an important
cancer-preventing strategy, because
adolescence is a' critical period
during which UV radiation
increases skin cancer risk.


Charges dropped

against Army officer


By JOHN MILBURN
Associated Press
TOPEKA, Kan. - The
Army dropped murder
charges Monday against an
officer accused of giving two
soldiers in his platoon
permission to kill Iraqi
civilians.
Second Lt. Erick J.
Anderson, 26, of Twinsburg,
Ohio, could have gotten life in
prison if convicted.
All charges were dropped
after an Army investigator who
presided over a two-day hear-
ing last month
recommended that Anderson
not face a court-martial.
Anderson was a platoon
leader in an infantry regiment
in August 2004. Four men in
his 36-member platoon were
convicted of murdering
unarmed Iraqis during
operations near Sadr City.
In statements to Army inves-
tigators, two soldiers said
Anderson gave them the


go-ahead to kill civilians,
including in one incident
described as a "mercy killing."
But during last month's
hearing, one of Anderson's
accusers changed his story.
Pvt. Michael Williams, of
Memphis, Tenn., said he only
implicated Anderson to get
prosecutors to reduce his own
life sentence to 25 years.
Williams said he shot the
Iraqi three times before
Anderson arrived in the build-
ing that was being searched
for weapons and insurgents.
A second soldier, Pvt.
Johnny Home Jr., refused to
testify unless he was granted
immunity from prosecution.
Home had said Anderson gave
him permission to kill an Iraqi
teenager to "put him out of his
misery."
Home, of Wilson, N.C., and
Pvt. Cardenas Alban, of
Inglewood, Calif., were sen-
tenced to one year in prison for
shooting the teenager, who
was severely wounded.


Man behind arsons

sentenced to 19 years


By STEPHEN MANNING
Associated Press
GREENBELT, Md. - The
mastermind of an arson spree
that destroyed or damaged
dozens of homes under con-
struction outside Washington
was sentenced Monday to
nearly 20 years behind bars.
Two other men were also sent
to prison.
Patrick Walsh, 22, was found
guilty in September of conspir-
acy and for the Dec. 6, 2004,
rampage at the well-to-do
Hunters Brooke development.
No one was injured.
U.S. District Judge Roger
Titus described the arson as
unparalleled in its scope as he
sentenced Walsh to 19 years
and seven months, the
maximum.
Aaron Speed, 22, received
eight years and four months,
and Jeremy Parady, 21, got
seven years and three months.
Both pleaded guilty to
conspiracy to commit arson.
Two other men are
scheduled to go on trial next


year.
The case had strong racial
overtones: All five men arrest-
ed are white, the neighbor-
hood was mostly black, and at
least one defendant told inves-
tigators the fires were racially
motivated.
But federal prosecutors did
not file hate crime charges and
ascribed various motives to the
participants.
Prosecutors said Walsh
wanted to gain attention for a
gang he formed, while Speed,
a security guard at the housing
development, acted out of
revenge because he believed
his employer did not show
enough sympathy after the
death last year of his infant
son. . ,.:
All three-defendants were
ordered to help repay the
$3.2 million in damage the
fires caused. Authorities had
earlier estimated damage at
$10 million, but that was low-
ered after the builder calculat-
ed the cost to rebuild the
homes.

CDC: Deadly bacterial illness


builds resistance to antibiotics


By MIKE STOBBE
Associated Press
ATLANTA - A deadly bac-
terial illness commonly seen
in people on antibiotics
appears to be growing more
common - even in patients
not taking such drugs,
according to a report
published Thursday in a
federal health journal.
In another article in the
New England Journal of
Medicine, health officials said
samples of the same
bacterium taken from eight
U.S. hospitals show it is
mutating to become even
more resistant to antibiotics.
"I don't want to scare
people away from using
antibiotics. ... But it's
concerning, and we need to
respond," said Dr. L. Clifford
McDonald, an author of both
articles and an epidemiologist
at the federal Centers for
Disease Control and
Prevention.
"Hospitals need to be
conducting surveillance and
implementing control meas-
ures. And all of us need to
realize the risk of antibiotic
,use may be increasing" as the
bacteria continue to mutate,
McDonald said.
The bacterium is
Clostridium difficile, also
known as C-diff. The germ is
becoming a regular menace
in hospitals and nursing
homes, and last year it was
blamed for 100 deaths.during
18 months at a hospital in
Quebec, Canada.
"What exactly has made

C-diff act up right now, we
don't know," McDonald said.
The article published in the
CDC's Morbidity and
Mortality Weekly Report
focused on cases involving
33 otherwise healthy people
that were reported since 2003
in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New
Jersey and New Hampshire.


Most of the
33 hadn't
been in a hos-
pital within
three months
of getting
sick, and
eight said
they hadn't
taken any
antibiotics in
that span.
C-diff is
found in the
colon and can
cause diar-
rhea and a
more serious
condition known


twins when she first went to
the emergency room with
symptoms. Despite treatment
with antibiotics
considered effective against'
C-diff, she lost the fetuses and
then died.
Ten of the 33 were
otherwise healthy pregnant
women or women who had


"I don't want to

Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention


intestinal
as colitis. It


is spread by spo4es in feces.
The ,spores are difficult to
kill with most conventional
household cleaners. Even
washing your hands with an
antibacterial soap doesn't
eliminate all the germs.
C-diff has grown resistant
to certain antibiotics that
work against other colon
bacteria. The result: When
patients take those
antibiotics, particularly clin-
damycin, competing bacteria
die off and C-diff explodes.
One of the 33 patients in
the report died - a 31-year-
old Pennsylvania woman who
was 14 weeks pregnant with


recently
given birth
who had had
brief
hospital stays.
The rest were
people in the
Philadelphia
area who had
not been in a
hospital in the
three months
before their
illness.
The New
England
Journal of


Medicine article looked at C-
diff samples taken between
2000 and 2003 from eight hos-
pitals in six states - Georgia,
Illinois, Maine, New Jersey,
Oregon and Pennsylvania.
The researchers found that
a virulent strain of C-diff
rarely seen before 2000
accounted for more than half
of the samples taken in the
hospitals. What's more, the BI


strain - as it is called -
seems to have built
resistance to two of the
newest antibiotics in the
fluoroquinolones class
commonly used in hospitals.
Much of the data was
presented at a scientific meet-
ing in Boston last year,
McDonald said.
Another NEJM article
looked at the occurrence of C-
diff in 12 hospitals in Quebec.
Researchers counted 1,703
patients with C-diff illnesses,
and 422 died within 30 days of
diagnosis.
Exposure to fluoro-
quinolones and other antibi-
otics was clearly a risk for
patients, according to the
Canadian researchers who
wrote the article.
Doctors watching for C-diff
in hospitals and nursing home
patients need to look for it in
other patients as well,
McDonald said.
Patients need to be wary
too. "If you have severe
diarrhea, seek attention from
a physician," he said.

Doctor's experience shapes


career in addiction psychiatry


By HOLLY RAMER
Associated Press

LEBANON, N.H. -To help
substance abusers overcome
their addictions, Dr. Matthew
Hopkins keeps an unusually
frenetic schedule: four jobs at
three workplaces in two states.
The 38-year-old psychiatrist
loves working with patients
other doctors can't stand: alco-
holics and drug addicts prone
to manipulation and lying. "I
just look at it as a symptom of
their disease and try to fix it,"
he said. "I see the person
behind the addiction."
He also sees himself.
When patients tell him,
"Doctor, you have no idea how
bad this is," Hopkins answers:
"Actually, yes I do."
A few years ago, Hopkins'
schedule included covering up
his own alcoholism and abuse
of prescription drugs.
"It becomes a 24/7 job, fuel-
ing this addiction and creating
an appearance of normality,"
he said. "I got very good at it,
but eventually it all came
crashing down and I started


doing crazy stuff."
That "crazy stuff' included
lying to his own psychiatrist to
get prescriptions and writing
fake ones when she eventually
cut him off. He got caught
when a pharmacist who
worked at two drug stores
noticed him filling
prescriptions under different
names.
The day he was called to the
legal office at Dartmouth
Hitchcock Medical Center in
May 2003, Hopkins was sure
his life was over. He was going
to lose his license, maybe even
go to prison. His wife would
leave him. His friends and col-
leagues would abandon him.
He confessed everything on
the spot.
"It wasn't me," he said. "I
don't lie to people. In areas
other than that, I don't lie. It
made me hate myself."
Though he didn't expect to
get a second chance, Hopkins
got one through the New
Hampshire Medical Society's
Physician Health Program.
The program, which exists in
some fashion in every state,


Pharmacists disciplined

for not filling prescriptions


By JIM SUHR
AP Business Writer

ST. LOUIS - Walgreen Co.
said it has put four Illinois
pharmacists in the St. Louis
area on unpaid leave for refus-
ing to fill prescriptions for
emergency contraception in
violation of a state rule.
The four cited religious or
moral objections to filling pre-
scriptions for the morning-
after pill and "have said they
would like to maintain their
right to refuse to dispense, and
in Illinois that is not an option,"
Walgreen spokeswoman
Tiffani Bruce said.
A rule imposed by Gov. Rod
Blagojevich in April requires
Illinois pharmacies that sell
contraceptives approved by
the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration to fill prescrip-
tions for emergency birth con-
trol. Pharmacies that do not fill
prescriptions for any type of
contraception are not required
to follow the rule.
Ed Martin, an attorney for
the pharmacists, on Tuesday
called the discipline "pretty
disturbing" and said they
would consider legal action if
Walgreen doesn't reconsider.
At-least six other pharma-
cists have sued over the rule,
claiming it forces them to vio-
late their religious beliefs.
Many of those lawsuits were
filed by Americans United for


Life, the Chicago public inter-
est law firm with which Martin
is affiliated.
The licenses of both a phar-
macy and that store's chief
pharmacist could be revoked if
they don't comply with the
Illinois rule, Bruce said.


guided him through the
lengthy process of treating his
addictions, restoring his med-
ical license and returning to
work.
Hopkins signed a five-year
contract in 2003 requiring him
to spend several months at a
rehabilitation facility, followed
by sessions with a therapist
several times a week and
monthly meetings with other
program participants. His
supervisor files reports on his
performance, and Hopkins
calls a toll-free 800-number
every day to see if he's been
selected for random drug
testing.
'The random drug testing is
a really crucial part, because
we're picking up on relapses
immediately," said Dr. Sally
Garhart, director of the New
Hampshire program.
Several published studies
put the substance abuse rate
among doctors at 10 to 15 per-
cent, similar to the general
public. But the recovery rate
among physicians is nearly
90 percent, or about four times
higher, said Garhart, who also

is a regional director of the
Federation of State Physician
Health Programs, a non-profit
organization administered by
the American Medical
Association.
The AMA formally recog-
nized physician impairment as
a serious problem in a
1973 policy paper titled "The
Sick Physician." Today, its
policy on impaired physicians
includes encouraging them to
seek help through their state
physician health programs
and pushing for further study
of .the problem. It also
supports programs for
medical students to reduce the
risk of future impairment.
In college, Hopkins was
"Good-time Matt," known for
working hard and playing
hard. In medical school, he
started downing a few beers
every night to help him sleep.
"It happened, very, very
slowly, because I couldn't let it
get out of control," he said.
"But that two became three
over the course of the year,
which became four, which
became five."

Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plans


By John A. Kasak
State Farm� agent
In December 2003, the federal
government's Medicare program changed
dramatically. That is when the Medicare
Modernization Act (MMA) became law. The
most significant change brought about by the
MMA was the new Medicare prescription
drug plans known as Medicare Part D, which
become effective on January 1, 2006. Part D
is designed to offer people with Medicare
ready access to affordable prescription drug
coverage.
The Center for Medicare and Medicaid
Services (CM) is partnering with private
companies to provide Medicare customers
with the new Medicare Part D coverage.
Companies have to apply with CMS to be an
approved health care provider and must file
all of their plans and applications with CMS.
So what is Medicare Part D?
Medicare Part D is a prescription drug
plan that may save you money on your pre-
scription drugs, depending on the types of
prescriptions you use. These plans are
different from Medicare-approved drug
discount cards, which phase out by May 15,
2006, or when a beneficiary's Medicare pre-
scription drug plan' takes effect, whichever is
earlier.
Medicare Part D is available to anyone
enrolled in Medicare Part A or Part B. If a
Medicare beneficiary has Original Medicare
with or without a Medicare supplement plan
(Medigap), they can enroll in a prescription
drug plan.
Premiums for these plans vary depending


on the plan provider, geographic area, and
policy benefits. If you are considering
enrolling in a Medicare Part 0 plan, you may
save money if you enroll before the deadline.
Open enrollment for current Medicare Part A
and/or Part B beneficiaries runs from
November 15, 2005, to May 15, 2006.
Premiums may increase up to one percent for
every month you delay beyond the end of this
initial open enrollment period.
Lower income beneficiaries who cannot
afford prescription drug coverage may qualify
for assistance. They can contact the Social
Security Administration for information on
getting extra help to pay for a Medicare Part
D plan.
What coverage is right for me?
First gather information on your current
prescription drugs. Make a list of all your
current medications and how much you are
paying per month. Check with the plan
providers to see if your drugs are on their
formulary list. If a drug does not appear on
their list, it may not be covered, or it may be
covered at an increased cost. Once you have
compared your drugs with the plan providers'
formulary list, check the premiums and
coverage of the various plans. Some insurers
are offering web-based calculators to help
estimate your monthly drug costs and
determine which plan may best fit your
needs.
How can I get coverage?
You can contact any of the plan providers
to get more, information on the plans they
offer, or you can contact your insurance
agent.

French engineer kidnapped in Baghdad


By BASSEM MROUE ' / �, n .
Associated Press .- r. .. .~ . . . "


BAGHDAD; Iraq -
Unidentified gunmen abducted
a French engineer as he was
on his way to work Monday in
Baghdad, police and the
French foreign ministry said,
the latest in, a wave of
kidnapping of Westerners.
The, trial for Saddam
Hussein resumed, and defense
attorneys walked out briefly
after judges on the Iraqi High
Tribunal refused to hear
arguments over the court's
legitimacy. The trial adjourned
until Tuesday.
Also Monday, the U.S. mili-
tary said a soldier assigned to
Task Force Baghdad was
killed ,when a patrol hit a
roadside bomb on Sunday.
Iraq!s army has launched an
operation in the Baghdad area,
including widespread deploy-
ment of troops and frequent
checkpoints, in preparation for
the Dec. 15 parliamentary elec-
tion, said Maj. Gen. Abdul-Aziz
Mohammed, head of opera-
tions at the Defense Ministry.
U.S. troops and Iraqi troops
also began an operation
Monday in Ramadi, 70 miles
west of Baghdad, to help
"neutralize the insurgency"
before the election, a
U.S. military said.

vehicle was destroyed when it
was hit by a roadside bomb,
but there were no injuries,
Iraqi police Lt. Mohammed
Al-Ubaidi said.
Operations wrapping up this
week along the Euphrates
River and in western Anbar
province have so far left
745 insurgents dead,
56 wounded and 1,766
detained, Mohammed said. He
added that 281 weapons
cashes have been discovered.
An Iraqi election official,
Ammar Kamil Ashur, was
killed and his assistant injured


Monday in Baqouba, a local
police statement said.
The kidnappers in three cars
surrounded the man as he was
getting into a car outside a
house in the wealthy Mansour
district of Baghdad, police
Capt. Qassim Hussein said.
The man was on his way to
work at the Risafa Water Plant,
in the center of the capital, he
added.
A photo identification card
found at the scene was. for
Bernard Planche, the head of
mission for AACCESS NGO, a
group that works on


U.S.-funded water projects.
Traces of blood were also
found next to one vehicle.
In Paris, French Foreign
Ministry spokesman Jean-
Baptiste Mattei confirmed
Planche was the victim and
that he worked for a non-gov-
ernmental organization called
ACCESS.
Mattei said the French
Embassy in Baghdad had
previously warned Planche of
the dangers he assumed "by
not taking the measures
essential to his security."
"He had been advised to
leave the country or, failing
that, to stay in touch with the
embassy," Mattei said, adding
that the embassy was in close
contact with Iraqi authorities to
secure his release.
French Prime Minister
Dominique de Villepin warned
French citizens not to travel to
Iraq. "It is categorically advised
not to undertake any such
trip," he said.
Saddam and seven co-defen-
dants are standing trial for the
1982 killing of more than
140 Shiites after an assassina-
tion attempt against the former
president in Dujail. The first
witness took the stand to
testify that Saddam's agents
carried out random arrests,
torture and killings in an Iraqi
village.


Strong earthquake hits east Africa; at least two dead


By ANJAN SUNDARAM,
Associated Press
KINSHASA, Congo - A
powerful earthquake Monday
toppled dozens of homes and
buried children in rubble in
eastern Congo, killing at least
two people in a region already
beset by chronic violence and
grinding poverty.
The quake, with a prelimi-
nary magnitude of 6.8, struck
at 2:20 p.m. (7:20 a.m. EST)
and was centered beneath
Lake Tanganyika' on the
Congo-Tanzania -border,
about 60,0,miles southwest of
Nairobi, Kenya, the U.S.
Geological Survey said on its
Web site.
"Dozens of houses have
collapsed, several children
were buried by, the roofs of
their,houses," said Dr. Jean-
Donne Owali, a Congolese
humanitarian worker in the
lakeside city of Kalemie,,
Congo, about 35 miles from,
the epicenter.
Owali said at least two.

children bleeding from head
injuries after their
mud-and-thatch horn As
collapsed. :
U.N. spokesman Michel
Bonnardeaux said a child was
killed in the city when two
houses and a church "crum-
bled." Three people were
wounded. It was not immedi-
ately clear if the child was one
of the two people Owali
reported killed.
SBonnardeaux said most of
the injuries in the area were
from falling zinc and- steel
roofs. The desperately poor
region also has camps for
tens of thousands of refugees
from wars and economic col-
lapse in Congo and Burundi.
The quake sent panicked
people running from
buildings in Kigoma, the


main Tanzanian transport
hub on the shores of Lake
Tanganyika about .90 miles
from the epicenter, said
regional commissioner
Elmon Mahawa. Authorities
were waiting for police sta-
tions in remote parts of the
country to report on any
casualties.
The USGS said the quake
was located about six miles
underground and shook
Nairobi and the Kenyan
coastal city of Mombasa. It
was also felt on the shores of
Lake Victoria, Africa's largest
lake, and in Tanzanian towns
bordering Zambia and
Malawi, Tanzania's meteoro-
logical chief Mohamed Mhita
said by phone from the
commercial capital of Dar,es
Salaam.

town of Uvira, said the quake
lasted 30 seconds. 'The build-
ings shook quite strongly. We
have no reports of deaths so
far," he said.
In Bujumbura, the capital
of Burundi, an Associated
Press reporter felt a three-
story building sway in two
waves of the quake.

the Great Rift Valley, which
runs for 3,000 miles between
Syria and Mozambique. In
January 2002, a volcano

Islamic Jihad suicide

bomber kills five


By ARON HELLER
Associated Press

NETANYA, Israel - The
first thing they noticed was the
bulging black bag he was car-
rying. His jittery behavior and
rapid pace toward the busy
shopping mall added to their
suspicions.
Israelis outside the shop-
ping center in Netanya sus-
pected a Palestinian suicide
bomber was in their midst and
sprang into action.
A driver alerted police. A
police officer gave chase,
shouting 'Terrorist!
Terrorist!" A security guard
emerged from the mall and
shoved the attacker away from
a crowd and against a wall.
The quick response didn't
prevent the bombing Monday
- which killed five people,
including the guard, and
wounded about 40 - but the
toll would have been far higher
had the attacker managed to
enter the mall.
"If the bomber had gotten
in, the result would have been
much worse," said Police Chief
Moshe Karadi.
SIn a country hit by more
:than 100 suicide bombings in
tlh last five years - and a cit
that is a favorite target because
it is only nine miles from the


West Bank - security is
always tight. Guards check
everyone entering malls and
are constantly on the alert for
potential bombers.
The bombing was the fifth
since a truce took effect last
February.
Islamic Jihad, a militant
group that has carried out all
five of the attacks, claimed
responsibility for Monday's
bombing, saying it was retalia-
tion for Israeli killings of the
group's leaders.
Israel and the Palestinians
are in the middle of election
campaigns, and more violence
could hurt both Sharon and
Abbas, who say they support
returning to the international-
ly backed "road map" peace
plan.
The blast shattered win-
dows and pocked the outside
of the brown multistory build-
ing. Pieces of concrete were
ripped off the facade, blood
stained the walls and debris
littered the sidewalk.
More than a half hour after
the bombing, one body lay on
the ground, its blackened legs
sticking out from under a blan-
ket, while another lay nearby
under a sheet. Emergency
workers rushed wheeled
stretchers with the wounded
toward ambulances.

Campbell also acknowledged

"We anticipated if we had to

Area seniors prepare for



annual Christmas Party


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

A Christmas dinner -
with all the fixings, spiced
the opportunity to sit in a
young Santa's lap and col-
lect a gift will be the key
attractions when Columbia
County Senior Services has
it annual ROTC sponsored
Christmas Party Friday.
The Columbia Senior
Services ROTC Christmas
Party will take place from
6-9 p.m. Friday at the
Columbia County Senior
Services Golden Age
Recreation Center, 480 SE
Clements Place, behind the
Marion Street Department
of Transportation Office.
The event is for Columbia
County seniors who are at
least 60 years old. There is


"They're just all interacting with each
other and they all enjoy it."

- Carol Shanklin,
Columbia County Senior Services supervisor


no fee to attend and
Columbia County Senior
Service clients will be trans-
ported to the event with
agency transportation.
Carol Shanklin, a
Columbia County Senior
Services supervisor, said
the event has taken place for
more than five years.
"I've been here for five
years and they've done it
every year," she said. "It's a
yearly event."
The annual" event is
described as a community
event as parents of ROTC
cadets prepare the food and


the uniformed cadets escort
the seniors inside the facili-
ty, portray Santa Claus and
serve the food.
"... And the ladies just love
to be escorted in by those
young, ROTC officers in
their uniforms," Shanklin
said.
During the event, seniors
get to sit on Santa's lap and
tell them their Christmas
wishes, have dinner with
friends and are given
Christmas presents.
"It's important to have
this event each year
because it brings the senior


population together with the
younger generation and lets
them interact," Shanklin
said. "I think all the age
groups love that. The
younger ones really enjoy
doing something for the
seniors and the seniors love
to be around the younger
people. They're just all inter-
acting with each other and
they all enjoy it."
The event is the formal
Christmas party for seniors
who normally attend the
center and its activities.
"The seniors like the
event because of the food,
dressing-up, sitting on
Santa's lap and the opportu-
nity to get out of the house,"
Shanklin said. '"They really
dress-up that night and they
all talk about getting to sit
on Santa's lap."


BISHOP: Woman was a pioneer in city, county


Continued From Page 1A

But that wasn't all.
"She was appointed to be
on the Florida Real Estate
Commission and also on the
Florida Board of Realtors.
She was the first woman
chairman of one and the only
woman to hold both," White
said.
Bishop was named both
Lake City Board of Realtors
Realtor of the Year and the
Lake City Reporter Woman of
the Year in 1976 and former
Lake City Mayor Gerald Witt
declared Nov. 4, 1982,
"Virginia Bishop Day."
"In her later years she
would go to see people who
were caregivers, sometimes
just sitting with them so they
could go out.to the grocery
.tore,.or get their hair .done,"
White said.
SBishop was appointed to
serve as Chairman of the
Columbia County 1976


Bicentennial Committee and
was.most proud of securing
funding and land to build the
Columbia County Public
Library main branch
building, White said.
SBut what Bishop is really
known for is being a friend,
her friends said.
"In her business and in her
personal life she was just a
super person and she was a
sincere friend," said Ann
Darby, a longtime friend.
"She was just an inspiration. If
she asked you to work on
something you just couldn't
say no because she always
did her part and that makes a
difference."
"Everybody loved Virginia.
She was really, really a sweet
person," Darby said.
Poole said he knew Bishop
for more than 25 years.
"She was a good friend.
She took time for others. She


had a good grasp of the com-
munity 'and" what it needed
and ho .to 'gb about getting
those things done and she
was a gdod coach in sharing
her taleAts. She shared her
talents with many other in
terms of her business expert-
ise," Poole,,said.
One of those Bishop
shared hei talents with was
Elaine Toler who bought
Coldwell Banker Bishop
Realty, Inc. from Bishop in
1995. Bishop stayed and
worked for Toler for a while
and even after she no longer
worked there , "she always
had time if you had a ques-
tion," Toler said\
"She had beed in business
a long time and was kind of a
pioneer. for. women. It was
unusual for women to be in
business," Toler said. "She
was very honest and hard-
working and very diligent."


But mostly those who
knew her speak of how
respected she was.
"Certainly her death is a
loss in the community in the
sense that she was one of the
matriarchs of the business
community," said Austin
Peele, an attorney who
worked with her. "She ran the
business and she had an
excellent reputation as a busi-
nessperson. She reflected
highly on her business."
Bishop had two children,
eight grandchildren and eight
great-grandchildren.
Attorney Tom Brown grew

*Troypunter pays
tribute to friend
serving in Iraq.
By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter. com

Tiger teammates
and best friends,
separated by
thousands of
miles but connected by 100
yards.
Daniel Roberts is with the
United States Marine Corps,
,a guntruck driver stationed in
Ramadi at a place called
Hurricane Pointe.
SThomas Olmsted recently
Scom[plrted his senior year as
a'. punter for Troy University.
BEv special pernriissionn from
Troy head coach Larry
Blakeney, Olmsted wore a
wristband during the season
with Roberts' nickname -
'Tex" - printed on it, as a
tribute to his friend.
"It means a lot," Roberts
wrote in an e-mail from Iraq.
"We have always been good
friends and it is cool he
supports me in that way.
Right before I left for the
Marines, I got to see him play
as a freshman. I know he is
really doing great at Troy and
I am glad I had the
opportunity to see him play."
Roberts and Olmsted
graduated from Columbia
SHigh in 2002 and played
football together as Tigers.
Roberts joined the Marines
and Olmsted accepted a
scholarship to Troy.
"Iwanted to do something
for Daniel," Olmsted said. "I
never thought it was fair, him


over there fighting and nme:
;playing football. It started in
practice ntid'thin I began
wearing it in games. He
knows he's with me and I'm
with him."
Football is not front and
center for the troops
stationed in Iraq. Roberts'
group has twice been hit by
IEDs (improvised explosive
devices) since September.
The first hit only lifted a
humvee off the ground, but
the second hit was followed
by gunfire. The tires were
shot out and the vehicle was
riddled with bullets. The
machine gunner on the
humvee lost a thumb and
finger in the attack.

Bowl Championship
Series gets to gloat with
glitzy lineup, little griping.

* Polls, bowl games, page 2B.

Associated Press
LOS ANGELES - For once, the Bowl
Championship Series gets to gloat.
With a glitzy lineup that gives the
critics little reason to gripe, the BCS has
never looked better.
The Rose Bowl is perfect with
Southern California and Texas, the
nation's only unbeatens.
The Orange Bowl is a game for the
ages - and the aged - matching
septuagenarian coaches Joe Paterno of
Penn State and Bobby Bowden of
Florida State.
Notre Dame is back on the big stage,
meeting Ohio State in a Fiesta Bowl
soaked in tradition.
Georgia gives the relocated Sugar
Bowl a "home" team in Atlanta, facing a
West Virginia squad that even makes
the Big East look good.
Only Oregon has a case to complain.
"I certainly understand that there are
teams that are not in these four games
that have had a great seasons, as we
have every year," BCS coordinator and
Big 12 commissioner Kevin Weiberg
said Sunday. "I must say that there's a
lot of consensus that we have quality
matchups among highly regarded,
teams in this year's BCS games."
Seemingly on a collision course all
season, USC and Texas will decide the
national title in Pasadena, Calif.
'They'do have the No. 1 team in the
'" tmuntry;, "Tex~ s codch Mack Brown
Said 'of the riu-tir- defending champi-
on Trojans. They've justblotr n out peo-
ple right and left, and that will be a chal-
lenge for us. But that's fun.
"For Texas not to be in the national
championship game for 36 years and to
see where (USC coach) Pete (Carroll)
has brought their program the last
three years, that's where we want to be.
That's where we want to go."
The BCS has been hammered in the
past for putting the wrong teams in its
championship games. Two years ago,
USC was left out and college football
ended up with two champs. Last season,
many felt Auburn should have played
USC for the championship instead of
Oklahoma.
The other common complaint is the
BCS doesn't create compelling
matchups beyond the title game. Well, it
' all worked out this season.
Yes, Texas and USC made it easy for
the BCS. But remember, in the pre-BCS
days the two superpowers would be
going separate ways for the postseason.
The Pac-10 champion Trojans and
Big 12 champion Longhorns can deter-
mine which team is best in the
Granddaddy of Them All.

Spurrier gets SEC coaching award
COLUMBIA, S.C. - Steve Spurrier
was named Southeastern Conference
Coach of the Year by The Associated
Press on Monday in his first season
with South Carolina, guiding the
Gamecocks to a 7-4 record and their
first bowl bid since 2002.
Spurrier has been named conference
coach of the year seven other times -
1988-89 with Duke in the Atlantic Coast
Conference and five times with Florida
in the SEC, the last time in 1996.
The Gamecocks came into the sea-
son a combined 1-25 against Florida and
Tennessee since joining the SEC in
1992. Spurrier's team beat them both.


Postseason field taking shape in NFL


Indianapolis, division
champion Seattle first to
qualify for the playoffs.
Associated Press

The Indianapolis Colts are in the
playoffs, as if anyone doubted they'd
get there. So are the Seattle Seahawks,
who qualified before taking the field.
The unbeaten Colts won their 12th


straight game and clinched at least a
wild-card berth in the NFC by routing
the Tennessee Titans 35-3 on Sunday.
Indianapolis is the fifth team in league
history to start 12-0, and the first since
Denver in 1998.
The Seahawks clinched the NFC
West when Washington beat St. Louis
24-9.
Moving into commanding positions
in their.division races were Cincinnati
- yes, the Bengals, who haven't had a


winning record since 1990 - and the
New York Giants.
The Bengals moved two games in
front of the Steelers in the AFC North
with a 38-31 win at Pittsburgh. The
Giants built a 17-0 lead and held on
against Dallas 17-10, giving them a
one-game edge on the Cowboys in the
NFC East.
Other first-place teams who won
Sunday were Chicago (NFC North),
19-7 against Green Bay; Carolina


(NFC South), 24-6 over Atlanta; and
New England (AFC East), 16-3 against
the New York Jets.

Colts 35, Titans 3
At Indianapolis, the Colts again
looked impressive as their quest for an
undefeated season continued.
Peyton Manning completed 13-of-17

Explanation Key
STeam percentages are derived by dividing a team's actual voting points by a maximum 2825 possible points in the Harris Interactive
Poll and 1550 possible points in the USA Today Coaches Poll.
Six computer rankings calculated in inverse points order (25 for No. 1, 24 for No. 2, etc.) are used to determine the overall com-
puter component. The highest and lowest ranking for each team is dropped, and the remaining four are added and divided by 100 (the
maximum possible points) to produce a Computer Rankings Percentage. The six computer ranking providers are Anderson & Hester,
Richard Billingsley, Colley Matrix, Kenneth Massey, Jeff Sagarin,, and Peter Wolfe. Each computer ranking accounts for schedule
strength in its formula.
The BCS'Average is calculated by averaging the percent totals of the Harris Interactive, USA Today Coaches and Computer polls.

Gathering for game-
watching in Ramadi is rare.
"We have one TV that gets a
few channels back in the States,
but we are usually too busy to
ever watch," Roberts said.
"Also, we are eight hours ahead
of the time in the States."
Roberts said he is stationed
with a lot of California guys,
who pull for Southern Cal.
"Every Sunday, me and my
friends try to get on the
Internet to see who won and
who lost Saturday's games,"
Roberts said. "If my Gators
win, I am usually in good spirits
Sfor the day. If they lose, oh well.
"It's hard to really care too
much when you are nowhere
around football. It means a lot
more when you are home."
Olmsted and Roberts grew
up together and began being
classmates at Summers
Elementary and carried on
through their CHS days.
There is some contact.
"We've talked a couple of
times through e-mail,"
Olmsted said. "We definitely
talk when we can. He has told
me some crazy stories. All you
can do is pray for him.
"He knew about the wrist-
band thing and I'm glad he,
liked the idea. I'm glad I did it,
for sure."

DEAR ABBY


Helping hands bring holiday

cheer to homebound neighbors


DEAR ABBY: The holiday
season has begun and most
people have started planning
for family feasts, gifts, home
decorating and travel. Not
everyone, however, will be able
to leave home, enjoy a holiday
trip, or be with family and
friends. For many people who
are frail, elderly, sick and have
disabilities, the holidays mean
staying home without the
festivities enjoyed by others.
May I offer some simple
suggestions to brighten the
holidays for our homebound
neighbors?
* One way to literally make
the holidays brighter is to help
replace burned-out lightbulbs
inside and outside their
homes. This can be extremely
helpful for someone who has
difficulty standing or turning
bulbs in light sockets.
* Help with holiday decora-
tions. Because putting up deco-
rations can be difficult for frail
elderly people, a little assis-
tance -with lights and orna-
ments that usually remain in
boxes could brighten their
holidays.
* Give a holiday gift of non-
perishable food items. For eld-
erly individuals on fixed
incomes, a special gift of jam,
instant hot cereals, fruit or a
selection of teas or coffee
could be a "luxury."
* Check to see if the heat
inside the home is adequate
and that precautions have been
taken to ensure that faucets are
working during sub-zero

temperatures.
Many elderly people find it
difficult to ask for something,
valuing their self-reliance and
independence, even if it means
ignoring a need. If you think a
homebound neighbor could
use assistance or a special gift,
please reach out and make the
effort to help. - LINDA
MASON, VISITING NURSE
ASSOCIATION OF TEXAS
DEAR LINDA: I hope your
suggestions will stimulate peo-
ple to think about how they can
help those who have difficulty
helping themselves. To your
terrific suggestions, I. would
like to add: Loneliness is the
ultimate poverty. If you can,
spend some time visiting. For
someone who lives alone, the
holidays can be a constant
reminder of family or friends
who are no longer living. A lit-
tle company can go along way
toward easing these feelings of
loneliness.
And if you're feeling lonely
yourself, consider volunteering
to deliver Meals on Wheels.
Holiday vacations can create a
shortage of the volunteers
needed to bring meals and
human contact to homebound


elderly, and those who are sick
and disabled. Besides deliver-
ing food, the drivers can also
provide much-needed holiday
cheer. There is no greater
"upper" than bringing joy to
others.
DEAR ABBY: I have been
dating a wonderful guy I'll call
Evan for about six months. A
woman he dated for a long
time died unexpectedly. She
had left him four months
before I met him, and until
recently, Evan claimed he
"hated" her.
Now that she's gone, Evan
talks only about how much he
loved her,, how beautiful she
was, and how he wishes she
had never left him. I'm trying
hard to be supportive, but it's
difficult to listen to - and,
frankly, I'm somewhat hurt by
all of this. How do you recom-
mend I handle it? -
DISTRESSED IN THE
MIDWEST
DEAR DISTRESSED:
Your boyfriend is grieving not
only for someone he cared
about, but also for a lost fanta-
sy. You're here, she's gone, so
my advice to you is to be
patient. Let him vent until
you've "had it up to here," and'
then gently ask him to
"remind" you why his relation-
ship with her ended. The
answer might bring him back
to reality.
* Write Dear Abby at P.O. Box

All work should be completed before the Christmas / New Years holiday shutdown December 24. FORT WHITE D ecember 7, 1941, dawned clear and calm at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. But a man-made storm was brew ing in the east, and at 7:48 a.m. it broke in a deadly rain of bombs, torpedoes, and strafing attacks delivered without warning by the Japanese Imperial Navy. Ninety minutes later, 2,402 American servicemen were dead, another 1,282 were wounded and four of the Pacific Fleets eight battle ships had been sunk. It was, as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt declared, a date which will live in infamy. Now 96, Fort White resident John Anderson remembers the day well. I was at my familys ranch house in Oregon, he recalled. It was terrible news, yet I wasnt all that shocked. I had been reading about military history for years and I knew tensions were rising. After the attack, I was sure the next target was the West Coast. So I borrowed the family car and drove 180 miles to Portland, where the naval recruit ing station was. The scene Anderson found was chaotic. I had to park the car seven blocks from the station and walk in, there were so many young men in the streets wanting to sign up, he says. I guess 80 percent of them had brought rifles and ammunition. We didnt know what Uncle Sam had, but we knew what we could do with our own guns, so we came prepared. Anderson was accepted by the Navy, but after basic train ing found himself assigned to a destroyer base in San Diego. It was pretty much an eightto-five job, but thats not what I wanted, he said. I knew men who had trained with me who were shipping out to the Pacific and I wanted to be out there, too, fighting. Becoming a submariner No transfer to a fighting unit was forthcoming, so Anderson decided to make his own trans fer and stowed away aboard the submarine USS Wahoo, then pre paring for her first run into the Pacific Theater. It didnt quite work out as I planned, Anderson said with a grin. After I was found, the captain just shook his head said he needed another torpedoman but couldnt take me without a transfer to his vessel being authorized. So he turned me back over to the commandant at the base. The commandant looked at me and said, Son, do you realize that boarding a U.S. warship without authorization in wartime can get you the brig for life? No, sir, I said. Do you really want to be a submariner that bad? he asked. Yes, sir, I said. Next thing I knew he was giving orders to get this man off my base, and I was sent to a sub base. Four days after I got there, I told the chief yeoman Id buy him a case ABOVE: The U.S. Navy battleships USS West Virginia (BB-48) (sunken at left) and USS Tennessee (BB-43) shrouded in smoke following the Japanese air raid on Pearl Harbor.

By STEVEN RICHMOND srichmond@lakecityreporter.com The board of county com missioners voted unani mously to begin a land swap process that would lay the groundwork for a new rail road spur connected to the North Florida Intermodal Park project Thursday eve ning. The agreement is a joint effort between Columbia County, Plum Creek Land Company and the US Forest Service whereby Plum Creek would grant easements along sections of the Florida Scenic Trail and other properties in return for the Forest Service pro viding an easement for a railroad spur to the county that would pass through Osceola National Forest to an existing CSX line. The county is the only partner in this partnership that is eligible to accept state moneys and state grants which we expect to be forthcoming, County Manager Dale Williams said during the meeting. Those grants and state moneys could be used for future development of the 2,622 acre intermodal parkland currently owned by Plum Creek, one of the largest private landowners in the US and holder of over 448,000 acres across 21 counties in the State of Florida. The U.S. Forest Service denied approval for a pre vious location proposed for a rail spur about a mile east of the new site, raising concerns it would threat en a population of redcockaded woodpeckers, a species listed as near threatened according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature and protected by U.S. environ mental government enti ties. The Federal Government doesnt just give you an easement for nothing. Their policies dont allow that, Williams said Tuesday.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS AROUND FLORIDA Man eyed in second killing MIAMI — A Florida man charged with killing a 10-year-old boy dur-ing a South Florida nail salon robbery now stands accused in a second unre-lated slaying. North Miami police said Thursday that 19-year-old Anthawn Ragan and others still at large fatally shot a man outside a Miami motel on Nov. 1. Ragan is charged with first-degree murder and possession of a weapon by a violent career criminal. Ragan is already jailed awaiting arraignment on murder, assault and rob-bery charges in the Nov. 22 shooting death of fifth-grader Aaron Vu during the nail salon robbery. The boy’s father, Hai Vu, owns the salon and was wound-ed in the shooting. Police are still searching for an accomplice in that case. Ragan’s court-appointed attorney did not immedi-ately respond to an email seeking comment.Attack bear is euthanized LONGWOOD — A bear that matched the descrip-tion of one that injured a Florida woman who was walking her dogs has been captured and euthanized. Florida wildlife officials say the 200-pound bear was captured Wednesday night in the same Longwood neighborhood in suburban Orlando where the 54-year-old woman was hurt. Officials with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission decided on euthanasia because the bear was cap-tured within 48 hours of the attack in the same location. After Susan Chalfant was injured Monday eve-ning, wildlife officers set up traps in the neighbor-hood where the attack took place. One of the traps captured a yearling bear that didn’t fit the description of the bear in the attack. That yearling is now being housed at a rehabilitation center in Crystal River.Cops come to aid of homeless man GAINESVILLE — Gainesville police officers and fire rescue crews came to the aid of a home-less man who was attacked by yellow jackets. Area newspapers report 51-year-old Joseph “Crazy Joe” Piser was sleeping outside a vacant building Tuesday morning when yellow jackets began swarming around him. Piser, who gets around in an electric wheelchair, was able to crawl away and flag down Officer Ryan McCazzio for help. McCazzio says Piser’s left eye was swollen shut and his knees and wrists were inflames from about 15 stings. The officer called for help. As paramedics tended to Piser, Officer Kelvin Walker ran to buy insect spray. Then he and McCazzio donned neon orange raincoats and sprayed the swarming yel-low jackets to get them away from the wheelchair.Man shoots his caretaker BRADENTON — Deputies say a man who was apparently spooked by noises in his house shot one of his caretakers. Manatee County Sheriff’s officials say 48-year-old Charles Fletcher had just gone to sleep Wednesday night when the noise awakened him. When he saw someone enter his bedroom, he grabbed a gun he keeps next to his bed and fired. The shot hit Erik Kirby, who is one of several caretakers who look in on Fletcher. Deputies say Fletcher has a medical condition. Kirby was taken to a hospital in stable condi-tion. Authorities are inves-tigating. South Africa’s Mandela dies at 95 JOHANNESBURG N elson Mandela, who became one of the world’s most beloved statesmen and a colos-sus of the 20th century when he emerged from 27 years in prison to negotiate an end to white minority rule in South Africa, has died. He was 95. South African President Jacob Zuma made the announcement at a news conference late Thursday, say-ing “we’ve lost our greatest son.” His death closed the final chapter in South Africa’s struggle to cast off apartheid, leaving the world with indel-ible memories of a man of astonishing grace and good humor. Rock concerts celebrated his birthday. Hollywood stars glorified him on screen. And his regal bearing, graying hair and raspy voice made him instantly recognizable across the globe. As South Africa’s first black president, the ex-boxer, lawyer and prisoner No. 46664 paved the way to racial reconciliation with well-chosen gestures of forgiveness. He lunched with the prosecutor who sent him to jail, sang the apartheid-era Afrikaans anthem at his inauguration, and traveled hundreds of miles to have tea with the widow of Hendrik Verwoerd, the prime minister at the time he was imprisoned. His most memorable gesture came when he strode onto the field before the 1995 Rugby World Cup final in Johannesburg. When he came on the field in South African colors to con-gratulate the victorious South African team, he brought the overwhelm-ingly white crowd of 63,000 to its feet, chanting “Nelson! Nelson! Nelson!” For he had marched headlong into a bastion of white Afrikanerdom and made its followers feel they belonged in the new South Africa. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was born July 18, 1918, the son of a tribal chief in Transkei, one of the future “Bantustans,” independent republics set up by the apartheid regime to cement the separation of whites and blacks. Mandela’s royal upbringing gave him a dignified bearing that became his hallmark. Many South Africans of all races would later call him by his clan name, Madiba, as a token of affection and respect. Growing up at a time when virtually all of Africa was under European colonial rule, Mandela attended Methodist schools before being admitted to the black University of Fort Hare in 1938. He moved to Johannesburg and worked as a police-man at a gold mine, boxed as an ama-teur heavyweight and studied law.Mandela film breaks box office records in SAfrica JOHANNESBURG — A movie depicting the life of Nelson Mandela has become South Africa’s highest grossing picture after its opening last week, its producers said Thursday. The film, “Long Walk to Freedom,” has already earned $427,000 (Rand 4.4 million), accord-ing to Videovision Entertainment. The movie stars British actor Idris Elba as Mandela. It’s based on his autobiography with the same title. “I visited a few cinemas over the weekend and experienced the emo-tional response to the film with audi-ences leaving the cinemas completely satisfied,” said producer Anant Singh. The movie traces Mandela’s life from his childhood in a remote rural part of South Africa, through his years strug-gling against apartheid, to his 27 years imprisonment and his election as the country’s first black president in 1994.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6 & 7, 2013 3A 3A By STEVEN RICHMOND srichmond@lakecityreporter.com A woman accused of flee ing police and leaving the scene of a crash with her two children was arrest ed Tuesday on a warrant served by county deputies. Authorities were on the lookout for Alnesha Bruyan Fudge, 26, of 198 SW Cannon Creek Road, after she sped down the nar row streets of Lake Citys downtown suburbs in her brown Chevy Malibu with her two daughters, one and four, in her backseat Nov. 4, according to an LCPD offense report. The four-year-old daugh ter told the Department of Children and Families that momma started to go fast before she struck a shed behind the Tabernacle Baptist Church on SE Lomond Terrace, accord ing to LCPD. The girl said neither her nor her sister were buckled in and we thrown against the front seats, adding that the one-year-old had glass on her foot as Fudge and the girls fled the scene, the report said. Fudge ran with the girls to the nearby Labor Ready building and borrowed a strangers cellphone to have an unknown individual pick up her and her daughters, the report said. Following an information call, LCPD made contact with Darrell Jones, a man who claimed no connec tion to Fudge that admit ted to picking up a [cry ing] woman with two kids while he was on his way to have his palm read on East Duval Street, officers said. Police said Fudge had seven active suspensions for not paying traffic fines, two for failing to appear on a traffic summons and one for failing to complete a court-ordered schedule. Deputies arrested Fudge at her home on SW Cannon Creek Road around 11:00 a.m. Tuesday and booked her into Columbia County Detention Facility on $48,500 bond. She faces charges of leaving the scene of a crash, reckless driving first offense, eluding police, driving with license sus pended second offense and two charges of cruelty toward a child for placing them in harms way. Church building hit and run suspect taken into custody Fudge They want something in return. They wanted an easement over that part of the trail they previously did not have. Now Plum Creek is giving an easement to the Forest Service for that trail and other properties. Williams estimated the agreement process with the Forest Service could take around 14 months alone and speculated that it would probably be two years before construction began on the proposed rail spur. County Attorney Marlin Feagle said amendments to the agreement, touted as a memorandum of understanding, were like ly to appear before the board in the near future. I have talked to rep resentatives from Plum Creek and I think we have worked out a couple of minor amendments... which primarily puts Columbia County on the same foot ing with Plum Creek... and [will] ultimately lead to Columbia Countys con struction and maintenance of the railroad spur and public roads, Feagle said. Although Williams said the county would accom modate any business not dependent on rail lines, he was eager to see the spur come to fruition. This is exactly what weve been waiting on for some time, he said. The quicker we can get this approved, the quicker we can move forward with developing our project. The long-term plan is for an inland port to benefit from increased shipping to Jaxport due to the widen bassinet, pull-out sleeper/ recliner, birthing bed, rock ing chair and other seating. The Birth Center at Shands Lake Shore has 14 rooms, a two-room increase from pre-reno vation work. Of the 14 rooms, eight are labor, delivery, recovery and post-partum rooms one room where a woman can give birth to her child and recover afterwards. There are six post-partum rooms. The space for the addi tional two rooms was cre ated by relocating a doc tors and nurses lounge as well as testing room, which gave the space for two larger handicappedaccessible birthing rooms. The hospitals nursery was also expanded during the renovation. Birthing mothers room-in and stay with new newborns and the nursery is where sick newborns receive care. Sherrod said the renovation was scheduled because Lake Shore offi cials wanted to keep peo ple local and provide new born care close to home. We wanted to create a beautiful birthing center right here at home, so that patients would not have to leave home to have a wonderful birthing experi ence, Sherrod said. We want people to know they can come here and have the very best quality of care in their delivery, have a beautiful environment to deliver their baby and enjoy their new born. Shands officials said the hospital averages around 80 births per month and project almost 1,000 births at the hospital in 2013. Before the renova tions, Marlene Summers, a Certified Nurse-Midwife, delivered my last two babies at Shands Lake Shore, said Dr. Daina Greene. The care was fabulous. I truly believe our labor nurses are some of the kindest and most experienced in the area. It is true southern hospi tality at its best and you, as a patient, are not just another laboring mom. Now, with the renovations, more mothers will choose to deliver locally and save on gas money and time off work. They will have the same opportunity as I had to receive the very best care so close to home. Cleopatra J. Steele Ministries / Lad Soup Kitchen would like to thank the entire Lake City and Columbia County area for the act of kindness, love, donations and volunteering of their time for our 22nd annual Thanksgiving Day Feast.

Why does it hurt? What is pain, anyway? And what can you do about it? Let’s take a broad look at “pain.” Understanding pain: There are special nerve cells throughout your body, called “sense receptors.” They transmit everything you feel, see, hear, smell, and taste, to your brain. Psychologists call these nerve impulses “sensation.” When these signals reach your brain, they are interpreted, or “perceived,” in areas of your brain that specialize in that particular type of sensation, like vision or hearing. Pain is simi-lar to these sensations, in that it is sensed by pain receptors and trans-mitted through nerves to the brain, like other senses. How do you sense and perceive pain? That’s a little more complicat-ed, and not thoroughly understood by scientists. Even when the cause of a pain has been removed, you may continue to feel pain—some-times for years! Chronic pain can seriously interfere with your life, and for the most part, it is treatable. Here’s an example. When you contact a hot iron, it causes chemi-cal changes and nerve cell activity, not only at the site of the event, but also it changes the chemical and electrical energy along the nerve, and even in the brain. Neuropsychologists develop theories to try to explain pain. One theory, “gate control theory,” sug-gests that there are “gates” along the nerves that can either block sig-nals or allow them to travel to the brain. When the body is injured, the gates can’t block the sensation of pain, so it reaches the brain, where it is perceived and experi-enced as “Ouch! that hurt!” The treatment can apparently block the pain signal along the nerve. That may explain why applying pressure on the injured area, or applying something like a soothing lotion or menthol, may relieve the pain. What can you do? Even though pain isn’t thoroughly understood, you can use some tried and true helpful ideas from folk wisdom, common sense, and of course, the field of medicine. Here are some suggestions that may help: Do you know what caused the pain? If you smashed your thumb with the hammer, the cause is obvi-ous. But many pains may be dif-ficult or impossible to find. With the help of some tests, your doctor may be able to help you find the cause. There are a wide variety of treatments, classified as physical, behavioral, or mental. Even if pain isn’t “all in your head,” sometimes medical science can’t find what causes it. Whether or not you can find the cause, there are some treatments that could help. Pain specialists may offer help by using some special techniques, like pain medication, physical therapy, or even hypnotherapy. There are many effective treatments you can do yourself. How about the use of salve or lotions, massage, stretch-ing, exercise, or getting extra rest? You might try “distraction” or “dis-placement.” Here’s how they work: Distraction: I’ve noticed that when I’ve had a headache or a stomach ache, it’s helpful to pick up a book or a magazine, or watch a TV program you like. Taking your mind off of it seems to make it fade into the background. I noticed when I put the book down, some-times the headache will come back! Displacement: One psychological principle says you can’t feel two contradictory feelings at the same time. If you’re happy, you can’t feel sad at the same time. If you feel very good and happy, you can’t feel pain at the same time. Try building up those good thoughts and feelings, doing something fun, or finding an enjoyable diversion. Chances are these will replace, or displace, the pain! Pain is experienced different for each person. Experiment a little, and find out what works for you. Just taking a positive action can help you feel empowered, and the confidence you get can help give you the motivation and strength to break through, and get beyond what’s troubling you. C ity Public Works Director Thomas Henry and his staff, along with the folks at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, are to be commended for taking the lead in the restoration of Lake Montgomery, a natural landmark long overrun with gar-bage and trash. Following through on a commitment he made to our readers, Henry and the FWC showed up bright and early Wednesday with airboats, nets and huge bins for hold-ing the styrofoam cups, soft drink cans and potato chip bags that littered the sur-face of the once-pristine lake. As Henry noted, it wasn’t a perfect fix.It will take a little more time and a lot more work to get the lake back to where it was. Still, we’re on the way, and a lot better off than we were just a few weeks back. We’ll keep you posted on this project’s progress. Q Associated Press To the Editor:I am 81 years old and I’ve been a Florida Gator fan my whole life. The Gator Nation is used to seeing their football team, for many years, win more games than they lose. Florida had the number one recruit-ing class last year so we expected to see this fact reflected in the win-loss columns this year. Not the case. Watching the Gators play on television for many years made me proud of their accomplishments. Not the case in recent years. The team has had zero discipline for years, leading the SEC almost every year in penalties. Losing a very good defensive coordinator and offensive coordinator as they were hired as head coaches elsewhere did not help matters; however, they have been successful and one must tip their hats to them. The current defensive coordinator has also done a very good job. That leaves the offensive coordinator and the head coaching positions. The last two offensive coordinators have a propensity to try to 1) run up the middle and 2) pass the football when his offensive line has not had the skills to open a hole for a running back to get any yardage or protect the quarterback long enough for him to find a receiver. Instead, the quarterback half of the time is running for his life. In Florida’s game versus Vanderbilt this year, many in the Gator Nation have felt for years the couching staff should have used every schol-arship available to get an offensive line that could help the Gators be successful. I used to blame the offensive coordinator for this shortfall. Understanding that the coaching staff and team view film of the last game played puts a new light on the subject. The lack of an effective offensive line should be apparent during the game. When subse-quently watching the game film, the shortfall should also be apparent to the coach to which the offensive coordinator reports. I am sure the Athletic Director attends most, if not all the games, so one may won-der where he is on the issue. Maybe it is time to reevaluate the coaching staff and make some changes of which the Gator Nation would be proud. This could include the position of AD. He could be moved to once again be responsible for selling tickets to the games. With the salary being paid to the coaching staff and supervisory positions mentioned in this commu-nication, the Gator Nation expects a positive return on the investment, which it is not receiving at this time.

FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, December 6 & 7, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 6A 6AF&V Protection and attacksT he Roman sol-dier’s armor was designed to protect him from the enemy. His sword was to be used when the soldier attacked his enemy. Paul used this imagery to illustrate how a Christian is to defend himself from the devil and how the Christian is to “battle” to set free the souls who are in Satan’s kingdom. In writing to the Ephesians (6:14), Paul tells the Christians at Ephesus to “gird your loins with truth.” The loins are at the very center of the human body and very vulnerable. Paul says the Christian must use the truth to pro-tect himself where he is the most vulnerable. The truth becomes a part of us when we spend time think-ing about God’s message to the point it becomes so real that we can put our trust and confidence in it. Paul tells the Christians to put on the breastplate of righteousness. The breastplate protected the soldier’s most vital organs. When the Christian is involved in righteous actions, then the weapons of the devil will not be able to harm the Christian. When the Christian is totally cov-ered in acts of righteous-ness, then there is no room for the evil actions of the devil to influence the Christian. Paul even tells the Ephesians to “shod” their feet and to put on “the hel-met of salvation.” He then speaks about “the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God.” The sword is the only weapon which the Roman soldier had when he went on the attack. He had to handle it accurately or it would do him no good. He had to spend hours practicing the craft of hand-to-hand combat so that he could be proficient in his use of the sword. Using the sword was “personal and up close.” One of the things which we need to think about is that Paul gives us equip-ment to use to defend ourselves as well as equip-ment to go on the attack. Let’s think about this piece of equipment used when the Christian is to go on the attack. First of all we probably do not think of the Christian going on the attack. We do not think that a Christian needs to be involved in the battle to take “captive” those souls who are in the “kingdom of Satan.” But what will hap-pen to them if we do not try to “take them captive”? What if we never “fight” to free them from the chains of Satan’s kingdom and bring them into the king-dom of God’s dear Son”? The other thing we need to think about is that our only “weapon” for attack is the “word of God.” It is not our opinion, it is God’s opinion. It is not what we think God is saying, but what God is saying. It is not our message, but it is the message of God. Paul said that the gospel is “the power of God unto salva-tion” (Romans 1:16). Using the Bible is what God has chosen to be the means by which He will free people from the kingdom of Satan and subsequently to trans-fer them into the kingdom of His marvelous Son. May we never forget that Satan wants us to be with him for eternity as much as God wants us to be with Him. Satan is battling very hard for our souls as well as the souls of our friends and family. May we learn how to use the armor God has given us to defend ourselves from Satan’s enemy fire. Likewise, may we learn how to use the sword God has given us to fight for the souls of others. BIBLICAL MEDITATION Carlton McPeakcarlton_mc@msn.com Q Carlton G. McPeak is an evangelist working in the Lake City area. All Scriptural quotations are from the New American Standard Bible, Holman Bible Publishers, unless otherwise stated. Neglecting your salvationPART THREEH ebrews 2:3 a says, “how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salva-tion...” The first week of our study on turning around one’s neglected salvation, we spoke of the first four of the thirteen “let us” in the book of Hebrews: “Let us fear” (4:1); “Let us” be diligent (4:11); “Let us” hold fast (4:14); and “Let us” come boldly to the throne of grace (4:16). Last week we picked up in chapter 6:1 “Let us” go on to per-fection or maturity; 10:22 “Let us” draw near; 10:23 “Let us” hold fast; 10:24 “Let us” consider one another to stir up love. Hebrews 12:1 “Let us” lay aside sin and 12:28 “Let us” have grace. Today we come to the last two of the “let us” found in Hebrews chapter 13. These two are among the most important of the “let us.” Hebrews 13:13 says, “Therefore let us go forth to Him, outside the camp, bear-ing His reproach.” This scripture seems to imply that we are to take the gospel message outside the camp (church). Churches are asked to be Great Commission Churches. They are told in Matthew 28:19, “Go therefore and make dis-ciples of all nations,” but no one ever tells where to go and how to make dis-ciples of them. Making disciples means teaching them as verse 20 says “to observe all things that I have commanded you.” How can they go if they don’t know where to go? How can they teach what they don’t know them-selves? So many today are not being taught in the camp (church), so they don’t know how to teach outside the church. Many today do not understand The Great Commission and if you only read Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 16:15-18, Luke 24:47, you still will be confused. Today we have several denominations that have come to be because of misinterpreta-tion of these scriptures. We have those who believe one must be bap-tized to be saved; those who believe they can cast out demons; those who speak with new (or unknown) tongues; those who believe if they are bitten by a poisonous snake or drink deadly poi-son it will not hurt them; and those that can heal the sick by the laying of of hands. The Apostles did have these powers, but none since. So how are we to be A Great Commission Church? Paul told Timothy in chapter 2:2 “And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit those to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” In other words, like a relay, the word is to go forth outside the camp. The last of the “let us” is 13:15. “Therefore by Him let us continu-ally offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.” A big part of our salvation is for us to go forth out-side the church building to share the salvation of the Lord Jesus with oth-ers. If we do not, as Paul said in 2 Timothy 2:2, “commit” or share the gospel with other, it will not be spread as it should be. Remember Jesus said “We are the light of the world” (Matthew 5:14). We must not leave that light under a basket; especially in this season. The verse says we are to continually praise God with our lips. So, as we think about all of the events that we will be faced with between now and January first, let us remember the Christ of Calvary who died for us.

LAKE CITY REPORTER RELIGION FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6 & 7, 2013 5A7AReligion‘Meanwhile’ used as a turning pointC halk it up to my love of multi-task-ing, (don’t you just love that rare day when you get to check off everything on your list?) but I really like the word “meanwhile,” especially when it gets used like this: My dinner was in the oven; meanwhile I finished up the laundry. Meanwhile literally means “at the same time.” Chapter four begins by telling us that while Ruth was at home feeling very con-cerned and probably con-fused about what was hap-pening, Boaz was in town getting the matter settled, just like Naomi assured her that he would. Like a man on a mission, Boaz gets to work: first, he waits for the nearer kinsman-redeemer at the city gate where all legal transactions were settled, the equivalent of our courtroom. Once he is in place, ten elders were gathered and then the case was opened. The details get a bit confusing in our English transla-tion, but remember that property wasn’t actually bought and sold in the way that we understand today. Through his inheri-tance, Naomi’s husband, Elimelech had rights to a parcel of land that was for-feited when the family left Bethlehem to go to Moab. What Boaz is presenting to the closest kinsman is the opportunity to buy back the property for Naomi’s family, herself and Ruth, not from them. This appeared to be agree-able until he understood the strings attached — the widow, along with the responsibility to maintain her dead husband’s name. Isn’t Boaz playing it cool? No doubt his heart is beating double time, hoping that he gets to be the one to redeem the property and get the girl! Did you notice how he throws in the fact that Ruth is a Moabitess and a “dead man’s” widow? I mean are there any other kind? It sure seems like Boaz was trying to make the deal sound as least appealing as possible. Whether it was those small details or not, Boaz’s strategy works and the offer was refused! One last thought, while I’m so glad that every-thing works out for Boaz to redeem the property and marry Ruth, I can’t help but feel a bit sorry for that other relative. For heaven’s sake, what if he was wearing his favor-ite pair of shoes? And I just have to wonder, did they have a shoe store in Bethlehem where you could buy just one in cases like this? Just goes to show, you never know what might be going on meanwhile… Because every heart matters, Angie “Meanwhile Boaz went up to the town gate and sat th ere. When the kinsman-redeemer he had mentioned came along, Boaz said, ‘Come over here, my friend a nd sit down.’ So he went over and sat down. Boaz took ten of the elders of the town and said, ‘Sit here,’ and they did so. Then he said to the kinsman-redeeme r, ‘Naomi, who has come back from Moab, is selling the piece o f land that belonged to our brother Elimelech. I t hought I should bring the matter to your attention and sugge st that you buy it in the presence of these seated here and in the presence of the elders of my people. If you wi ll redeem it, do so. But if you will not, tell me, so I will know. For no one has the right to do it except you, and I am next in line.’’ ‘I will redeem it, ‘ he said. Then Boaz said, ‘On the day you buy the land from Naomi and from Ruth t he Moabitess, you acquire the dead man’s widow, in ord er to maintain the dead with his property.’ At thi s the kinsman-redeemer said, ‘Then I cannot redeem it because it might endanger my own estate. You redeem it yo urself. I cannot do it.’ (Now in earlier times in Israel, for the redemption and transfer of property to beco me final, one party took off his sandal and gave it to the other. This was the method for legalizing transactions i n Israel.) So the kinsman-redeemer said to Boaz. ‘Buy it yourself .’ And he removed his sandal.” — Ruth 4:1-8 HEART MATTERS Angie Landangieland3@windstream.net The uses of stonesS everal years ago, we had what the Irish call a “Pub” — that is, a bar, and it was called “The Frog.” Then it was doomed to be torn down. As we would pass by, sometimes daily, we would watch the progress but it just so happened that we were in the process of fixing up our yard. It seemed like we planted hundreds of plants, bushes and trees. We created gardens and actually named them. We have the “Mail-box garden,” the “Bird house garden,” the “Beside the house garden,” and we had the “Zig-zag garden” (which is thankfully gone), the “Triangle garden,” and then there is the “Long garden” which goes around the back yard. We just about gardened ourselves to death, right? Well, this was all a part of just making our little place look a bit better. Part of these projects included rocks… lots and lots of rocks. We would see a pile of rocks somewhere and stop and try and get some. We drew the line when we saw road repair being done and huge chunks of sidewalk and street were coming up. But then came the frog. When that place came down, I mentioned it to my wife and we were both ‘drooling.’ You may think it funny to drool over rocks…. But just think about how much that stuff costs. We were putting borders made of rocks everywhere. The day came and I went down to the place where all that remained of the “Frog” was a huge pile of rocks. I had my trusty old, half ton 1989 Chevrolet truck (long bed), and stopped at the site. I asked if I could have some rocks. The workers said, “sure,” but I don’t think they expected what happened. I started picking rocks, actually cinder blocks that had been broken. Four trips, and two tons of rock later we had what we thought was enough to put bor-ders around everything in our yard. Surprisingly the truck withstood the stress, even though each load made the truck ‘sag’ on the rear end. Now we are almost finished with our projects and the yard looks pretty good. All with a lot of hard work. Rocks (stones) have been used throughout the bible for various reasons: building walls (Genesis 11:3), building an altar for worship (Genesis 28:18, 22), stones were used as monuments (Genesis 35:14), as vessels (Exo. 7:19), as examples (Exodus 15:5, 16), as weap-ons (Exodus 21:8), to write on (Exodus 24:12; 28:10, to punish and put to death (Leviticus 20:27; 24:14; 26:1; John 8:1-11), used in prophesy (Matthew 24); and reference to Jesus (Acts 4:11)… for closing tombs (John 11:38-45), for marking a place of judgment (John 19:13)… and many others. The most notable stone, the one which is historically remembered and spoken about, is the one which was moved from the tomb of Jesus (John 20:1). Jesus of course didn’t need the stone removed to get out of the tomb; it was moved for us. It was moved so the disciples could go in and see the linens which wrapped Jesus lying in their folds. So they could see Jesus was not there. He is our risen Savior. All the oth-ers who claim to be the Messiah are still dead, their graves… marked with a stone.

Appreciate ‘outsiders’ — part 3 of 5By David MatthisAP Religion WriterLast week we discussed accommodating outsiders and how our church services should be inviting outsid-ers, not turning them off. Paul charged the church in Corinth to engage non-believers in worship. But do not do this at the expense of the truth of the gospel. This week we shift our focus to appreciating ‘outsiders’ and watching how we act in front of them.Appreciate OutsidersCare for outsiders goes beyond First Corinthians. Related is the healthy concern for the gospel’s reputation in the Pastoral Epistles. Whether it’s the conduct of widows (1 Timothy 5:14), slaves (1 Timothy 6:1; Titus 2:10), or young women (Titus 2:5), Paul would have us seek “in everything [to] adorn the doc-trine of God our Savior” (Titus 2:10) and not bring any just reviling on the name, teaching, and word of God (1 Timothy 6:1; Titus 2:5). He would have us be concerned to “show perfect courtesy toward all people” (Titus 3:2), and have us care that our good works “are excellent and profit-able for people” (Titus 3:8). It matters in 1 Thessalonians 4:12 that we “walk properly before outsid-ers,” and in Colossians 4:5–6 that we conduct ourselves wisely “toward outsiders, making the best use of time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.” And as we give an answer, and provide a defense to anyone who asks the reason for the hope that is in us, Peter adds his voice to the concern with outsiders: “Do it with gentleness and respect, having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame” (1 Peter 3:15–16). Our apologetic is not only carefully cho-sen words, with a kind demeanor, but a life that benefits others, even outsiders. “This is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people” (1 Peter 2:15). US Capitol tree lit WASHINGTON — An 88-foot-tall spruce that was transported from Washington state to Washington D.C. has been illuminated in a cer-emony on the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol. House Speaker John Boehner flipped the switch that lit the Capitol Christmas Tree, helped by the sixyear-old son of an Iraq war veteran. Washington Congressman Jim McDermott said Christmas is about a “child that came into the world and changed the world.” He added, “I hope this tree will remind us of Jesus’ call to feed the hungry, to wel-come the stranger, to clothe the naked and to take care of the sick.”RELIGION BRIEFSQ Associated Press Q Heart Matters is a weekly column written by Angie Land, director of the Family Life Ministries of the Lafayette Baptist Association, where she teaches bible studies, leads marriage and family conferences, and offers bibli cal counseling to individuals, couples and families. By BRENDAN FARRINGTONAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE — A private group placed a Nativity scene in the Florida state Capitol on Tuesday in an event that included prayers, children singing Christmas carols and a celebration of Jesus’ birth. Up next, the atheists get their say.The Capitol rotunda is open to any group that applies through the state Department of Management Services as long as their displays follow guidelines on size and other restrictions. The Florida Nativity Scene Committee decided to use that opportunity to display the biblical scene of Jesus’ birth. “We are not trying to offend anyone, but we are taking a stand for Christ in Christmas, a stand for truth and religious freedom,” said Pam Olsen, who organized the event. “And what better place to do this than the heart of our state government.” American Civil Liberties Union of Florida executive director Howard Simon immediately thought of two better places. “They may now have a right to do that, but there are better places,” Simon said. “There are houses of wor-ship and there are each of our homes if we choose to commemorate the holidays.” Groups that advocate for the separation of religion and government say the display is on solid constitution-al grounds because the state is not spending money on it and it has designated the Capitol rotunda as a public forum. A disclaimer was posted near the Nativity scene that said the state does not support or endorse the dis-play, which is across the rotunda from a giant menorah that marks the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah. And it’s why the state is letting the Freedom From Religion Foundation hang a banner with its views. T he banner is expected to be hung Thursday. It will dep ict Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and the Statue of Liberty adoring the Bill of Rights pl aced in a crib typically used to depict Jesus and the Nativit y scene. “Let us also honor the birth of our Bill of Rights, which reminds us there can be no freedom OF religion without having freedom FROM religion in government,” the banner reads in part. The group also has signs up to counter Nativity scenes in the Wisconsin and Illinois capitols that declare there are no gods, heaven or hell. “We don’t think there should be religion or irrelig ion in any state Capitol, but if they’re going to start allowi ng religion and call it a public forum then certainly the non-relig ious point of view should be there, too,” said Annie Laurie Gaylo r, co-president of the Madison, Wisc.-based foundation.

Fort White students learn to weld at FGC By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com A group of Fort White High School students took a trip to Florida Gateway College Thursday where they were able to get an inside look and hands-on experience into the refrig eration, HVAC and weld ing fields. The students spent close to four hours at the college touring the class areas as well as others on campus, but spent most of their time performing hands-on activities as they worked on virtual reality simulators. The students seemed to enjoy the visit, said Tim Robinson, FGC HVAC/ refrigeration instructor. They were able to tie the academic portion of the program to the hands-on portion of the program. Being able to go in and do a simulation on how it should work, view the pro cess, service of operation and take that into the lab and be able to see an actual physical machine operate in that manner increases their likelihood of being successful in installing, troubleshooting and ser vicing HVAC equipment. Dustin Williams, an 18year-old Fort White High School student, used a blow torch to weld a piece of cop per tubing during the trip. I enjoyed the tour. I learned a lot of stuff I didnt know about, he said. I liked welding the copper tubing. It was pret ty unique and something I had never done. Marcus Bell, a Fort White High School instructor at the schools Energy Academy, said the trip helped the students because it taught them that they needed to stick with education to increase their ability to make money. They can learn on their own, but if they come here and learn the correct tech niques first, theyll go a lot further, he said. Wayne Oelfke, who is with the Fort White High School technical, agricul tural, operations depart ment, said 26 Fort White High School visited FGC during Thursdays outing. Oelfke said it was impor tant that the students have an opportunity to see and talk to people who are in the community. Our goal is not only to get these students certi fied, but get them certified with quality skills that they can compete and its all here at FGC, he said. Were trying to create a feeder program where kids can start at high school level and see a future and continue their educational ladder, coming up through the college where they can get certified and go out in the work world and earn a good living with good skills, added Carl Romano, FGC Industrial Technology Occupational programs coordinator. Joe Ganser, FGC weld ing instructor, said FGC has the most technology to offer welding students in the state, including a $50,000 welding simulator. No other school in Florida has as much weld ing technology as we can offer students here with the different types of equip ment we have, he said.

Wayne Oelfke, Fort White High School technical and agri cultral operations deparment of Scotch if hed get me onto a submarine. He took me out to the liquor store that night, and a few days later I was on my way to New London (a Navy base near Groton, Connecticut, where the Naval Submarine School is located). After completing his training, Anderson served as a submarine torpedo man for the remainder of World War II, eventually being assigned to USS Baya, which made five war patrols in the South China Sea, Gulf of Siam, Java Sea, and Philippine Sea in 19441945. It was not an easy service. The Japanese had what we called hunter-killer packs, he recalls. Theyd surround a sub and then send in destroyers one at a time to depth charge it while the rest maintained a cordon around the subs location. Your best bet was to get below the thermo cline (a thin layer of water in which a rapid tempera ture change takes place, separating the warmer upper waters that are heat ed by solar energy from the cooler, more stable deep waters below), which would throw off their sonar. But if you were in a harbor, you couldnt always do that because the water was too shallow. Surviving a depth charge was not a pleasant experience either. When the charges started coming, Id get every man in my compart ment assigned to doing something, Anderson remembers. It was bet ter than sitting around anticipating. Then the shock waves would hit. Youd have leaks from water lines and air lines, and youd see the men around you with blood leaking from every open ing in their bodies. Id say at least 85 percent of those who survived came out with hearing loss. It was an occupational haz ard, but one the Veterans Administration never really acknowledged. Following the war, Anderson returned to the East Coast, where he mar ried a young woman he had met while stationed there. We had 54 won derful years together, and I wish I could have another 54, he said softly. But God has been with me every step of the way. Today, Anderson lives quietly on a small horse farm off Old Wire Road. A member of the American Legion, he still keeps in touch with some of his fellow submariners, though the U.S. Submarine Veterans of World War II disbanded in September 2012. There werent enough of us left who were fit to travel to keep it going, he said. Anderson and his fel low veterans are the last of a rare breed, as submariners never accounted for more than two percent of naval personnel during World War II. Yet they sank more than 30 percent of the Japanese Navy and some 5 million tons of shipping, exacting a bitter price for the memory of Pearl Harbor. Anderson has no regrets regarding his military ser vice. I think we got more out of our military service than any other branch, he says. We came out believing that we could do anything. No one will ever know the full story of the submarine service; most of us never knew more than we needed to know to do our jobs. It really was the Silent Service in more ways than one. All I can say is that we were expected to do the impos sible and we did. ANDERSON Continued From 1A JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter John Anderson kisses Shirley Bennett while at the American Legion on Wednesday. Bennett is Andersons caregiver. Anderson lives with a total hearing loss in his right ear and a 95 percent hearing loss in his left due to his wartime service. No one will ever know the full story of the submarine service; most of us never knew more than we need ed to know to do our jobs. It really was the Silent Service in more ways than one.

Lady Tigers fall, 2-1, on Senior NightBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comIt was a heartbreaker on Senior Night as Columbia High’s soccer team fell, 2-1, to visiting Hamilton County High at Tiger Stadium on Thursday. Hamilton opened up the scoring with a goal in the 14th minute, but Columbia was able to bounce back and tie the game heading into the half. Alyxx Lloyd scored on an assist from Carla D’Antoni with 15 min-utes remaining in the first half to tie the game. The two teams would go scoreless despite Columbia having a handful of shots on goal throughout the second half. Hamilton took a 2-1 lead with a breakaway goal coming with four minutes remaining in the contest. Columbia had five shots on goal during the final two minutes of play, but were unable to put a shot in the net. “Hamilton just came in and wanted it more,” Columbia head coach Lindsay McCardle said. “We fought hard, especially in the final 10 minutes, but it was just those little mis-takes that gave the game away. We’re coming up on three games this weekend, and we have to move on.” McCardle also said that the Lady Tigers did a good job of finding shots, but have to put the ball away. “We had more than 20 shots on goal,” she said. It was a sad ending to the festivities for the seniors, but McCardle said that Jessica Chatman, Carla D’Antoni and Kayla Janson have all been valuable mem-bers of the Lady Tigers. “We will definitely miss all three of them,” McCardle said. “They’ve put in a lot of hard work and sweat. They’re sweet girls and I have enjoyed getting to know them over the last few years. We’ve all grown together and they’ll defi-nitely be missed.” Columbia falls to 2-8 on the season, but has a chance to rebound this weekend in the Timberwolf Classic in Tallahassee starting today. Indians take county hoops Fort White knocks off Columbia, 61-57 JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFort White High’s Melton Sanders drives through through C olumbia High’s Robert Dace (15) and Tre Simmons (2) while attempting a shot during a ga me Thursday night. Fort White beat Columbia, 61-57. By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFort White High’s basketball team beat Columbia High, 61-57, in Lake City on Thursday in a game that defined playing hard. The effort produced fumble-fisted play and plen-ty of fouls, but also some brilliant basketball. After trailing most of the game, Columbia closed to within one point with 1:52 left to play. A 6-0 run finished off the Tigers. “We knew it would be a battle,” Fort White head coach Isiah Phillips said. “You have two programs with some real good young men. It could have gone either way. We still had some energy at the end and we told them to fight through the adversity. We teach finish.” Tre Simmons started the game with a 3-point-er for Columbia (3-2) and the Tigers led 12-6 at the midpoint of the first quarter. Fort White erased that with an 8-2 run down the stretch and the game was tied 14-all at the first buzzer. Melton Sanders went on a rampage in the second quarter, scoring 12 of his game-high 24 points and sparking the Indians to a 13-1 run and a 27-19 lead. Columbia coach Horace Jefferson called a time out and Jordan Coppock responded with a 3-pointer. Sanders matched the trey and Fort White took a 34-25 lead into intermission. Sanders scored six points in the third quarter and hit two free throws late in the game. “We had a good week of practice and it came down to executing at the end,” Sanders said. “Most of us played football and we played more physical. That is usually what Fort White does.” The Indians pushed the lead to 10 points with three minutes left in the third quarter. Dilan Hall and Chris Cottrell traded baskets off rebounds, then Simmons hit another 3-pointer and Darrell Jones hit two free throws to cut the lead to 46-41 at the end of the quarter. After a Joe Powers free throw and another offensive rebound basket by Cottrell for Fort White, Simmons got the deficit back to five points with his fourth 3-pointer. Jefferson called time out with 5:58 remaining, but it was Quan Porter who responded for Fort White with two baskets. Two more free throws from Jones plus a bucket from DaKarry Rossin and a trey by Simmons made it 53-51 Fort White with 3:45 left to play. Jalen Wyche scored a basket for Fort White, then Simmons was fouled on a 3-point attempt and made all three free throws. Fort White’s lead was one, 55-54. Both teams missed free throws, then Cottrell hit a basket and two free throws. Sanders’ two free throws offset a late 3-pointer from Jones. “We had too many unforced errors,” Jefferson said. “We have good ball-handlers so the press didn’t bother us. I told them yes-terday we need to focus on finishing and we didn’t finish. I want to commend my kids. They could have rolled over and died, but they didn’t. “We were beaten by a pretty good team, and we’re a pretty good team.” Cottrell and Wyche each scored 12 for the Indians. Porter scored six points, Powers scored five and Christian Helsel scored two. Fort White (3-0) plays at Oak Hall School at 7:30 p.m. today. Simmons led the Tigers in scoring with 15 points and Jones scored 14. Rossin scored nine points, with eight points from Hall, five from Coppock, a 3-pointer from Robert Dace, a basket by Andrew Moemeka and a free thrown from Kelvin Jonas.

LAKE CITY REPORTER NASCAR FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6 & 7, 2013 3B3BNASCAR In recent months, there have been questions about the future and the nances of Iowa Speedway, the .875-mile track in Newton, Iowa, that was designed by Rusty Wallace and has drawn praise from drivers and fans alike. Veteran track manager Doug Fritz left the track several months ago, and there were published reports indicating that the track was behind on some of its bills, even though it drew good crowds for its NASCAR-sanctioned Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series races as well as the IndyCar events run there since the track opened in September 2006. But any doubts about the track were erased last week with the announcement that NASCAR had purchased the venue. “Iowa Speedway is a great entertainment facility with a very bright future,” Eric Nyquist, NASCAR vice president, strategic development, said in a release announcing the purchase. “The facility has the support of the region, it’s positioned well in the heart of the Midwest, and year in and year out it provides great short-track racing ac-tion for motorsports fans. “NASCAR ownership will allow us to draw on the entire resources of our compa-ny. It also provides us with the opportunity to execute rsthand a number of entertain-ment ideas and engagement opportunities with fans — much of which we have out-lined repeatedly as the core of our Industry Action Plan.” Iowa Speedway already has announced its 2014 schedule, and it includes two Nation-wide races, one on May 18 and the other on Aug. 2. There will also be one Camping World Truck Series event in conjunction with the IndyCar series on July 11-12, and two NASCAR K&N Pro Series support races. Although many consider the purchase by NASCAR to be a sign that a Sprint Cup race will be held at the track, since NA-SCAR controls the schedule for all of its major divisions, the announcement said that there are no immediate plans to host Cup races at Iowa. There will be a gathering in Des Moines on Thursday, Dec. 12, to outline additional details on the purchase and plans for the future. Information on this event will be announced soon. Season ticket holders may renew their tickets for the 2014 season, and will have an exclusive right to secure their current seats until Dec. 14. All other seats are available for purchase immediately, with season ticket prices starting at $95. For more information visit www.iowaspeedway.com. For many a NASCAR fan, David Ragan, of Unadilla, Ga., is considered one of the sport’s young guns. But as it was brought home to him a week ago at Myrtle Beach (S.C.) Speedway, he’s been around the sport quite a while. He’ll turn 28 on Christmas Eve, and he’s been racing for more than half of his life. He’s run seven full seasons in the elite Sprint Cup Series, with two wins, two poles and 34 top-10 nishes to his credit. In 99 Nationwide Series starts over the years, with just two full-time campaigns, he’s won twice, taken two poles and posted 46 top-10 nishes. But he was racing in Legends, Allison Legacy cars and Late Models for years before he ever broke into NASCAR. When Ragan returned to Myrtle Beach to compete in the track’s big 400-lapper for Late Model Stock cars, he ran as a teammate to Kaz Grala, who wound up nishing in second place, two spots ahead of Ragan. Grala really is a young guy. He’s just 14 and wasn’t old enough to understand the sport the last time Ragan raced at Myrtle Beach, back in 2003. On the same weekend at Myrtle Beach Speedway, Ragan saw Todd Gilliland, the 13-year-old son of his Sprint Cup team-mate David Gilliland, nish second in a Limited Late Model race. “Talking to kids about something that happened at the track in the late 1990s, I realized they probably hadn’t been born then,” Ragan said. “That kind of puts it in perspective.” It also reinforces to Ragan just how lucky he is to compete at the level he does, and to be able to win races like this year’s Aaron’s 499 at Talladega Superspeedway. “There are a lot of talented drivers out there, but there are only 43 spots avail-able in the Sprint Cup Series,” he said. “I really appreciate every opportunity I’ve ever gotten, and I don’t take anything for granted.” In the 400, Ragan qualied a disappointing 20th, but was satised with his fourth-place nish. “We passed a lot of cars,” he said. “And it was fun.” After enjoying a Thanksgiving break, Ragan attended the Georgia-Georgia Tech college football game, then headed south to Pensacola, Fla., to compete in the 46th-annual Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway on Dec. 8. The annual event is the most prestigious in asphalt Late Model racing and over the years has attracted some of NASCAR’s top drivers, including the late Dale Earnhardt. Previ-ous winners include NASCAR veterans like Darrell Waltrip and Kyle Busch, and short-trackers like Fayetteville, Ga.’s Ronnie Sanders and Chase Elliott, who, like his father, Bill Elliott, started out rac-ing on short tracks in the Southeast and quickly moved on to one of NASCAR’s top touring circuits. Ragan has run the Derby for the past three seasons, with his best effort com-ing last year, when he started on the pole and nished eighth behind Erik Jones, who recently became the youngest winner ever in NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series. “We had a shot to win it last year,” Ragan said. “We’re going back down there and give it our best shot again.” Ragan will drive his own car at the Derby, and his cousin Brett Ragan, a former car chief at Roush Fenway Racing now working at David Ragan’s Ford dealership in Perry, will serve as his crew chief. After seven years in Sprint Cup, young gun David Ragan has been racing for more than half his life David Ragan won the Aaron’s 499 Sprint Cup race in 2013.Sean Gardner/Getty Images for NASCARJust how Austin Dillon’s 2013 Nationwide Series cha mpionship will be remembered won’t be known for some time. It may be that people remember that he won th e title without winning a race. Or it could be that t he focus will be on his battle down the stretch with eventua l runner-up Sam Hornish Jr. — a battle that ended at Homestead-Miami Speedway with a bit of controversy, as 12 laps of caution were run in the final 17 laps, e nding any chance Hornish had of overtaking Dillon, who wa sn’t running nearly as well as Hornish in that race. But it may be that as time goes by, the NASCAR worl d will focus on the remarkable reversal of fortunes t hat Dillon and his No. 3 Chevrolet team at Richard Chil dress Racing experienced over the final two thirds of the season. Back in the 10th race of the season, at Charlotte M otor Speedway, Dillon started on the pole, but faded to 14th at the finish. He left his home track seventh in the p oints standings, 55 points behind then-leader Regan Smith But over the final 23 races, Dillon had 17 top-10 f inishes, and 11 of those were top-5s. In hindsight, t he numbers look even more impressive to those who underst and a season-long points race, as it’s more important t o finish consistently high in the running order than to win occasionally and have poor finishes in other races. Dillon’s comeback seems almost scripted, and he sai d it was in large part a matter of following a master pl an. “We did a good job of setting goals 10 to 15 weeks ago,” Dillon said. “We did a good job of making up points .” Dillon’s worst finish down the stretch was a 21st o n the road course at Mid-Ohio. That weekend saw him fill in for the injured Tony Stewart in Stewart’s No. 14 Sp rint Cup car at Michigan in addition to racing at Mid-Oh io. Because of the travel, he had to start in the rear at MidOhio, but Dillon said that wasn’t a factor. “Every time you get a chance to run a Cup car, it’s good experience,” he said of running the more powerful S print Cup cars. “It opens your eyes to how hard you can r un a Nationwide car at certain places. “At Mid-Ohio, we had to start in the back, but we g ot our track position back right off the bat. We wound up getting beaten around at the end of the race. Those roadcourse races have a way of ending up like races on the quarter-mile at Bowman Gray Stadium. You have to pl ay offense.” The next week, Dillon bounced back to finish third at Bristol Motor Speedway and move to second in points six behind Hornish. From then on, over the final 10 races, it was essen tially a two-driver contest. By season’s end, the closest challenger, Smith, in third place, was 72 points out of the lead. “The last few weeks were tough,” Dillon said. “Sam is a very tough competitor. He’s won championships in IndyCar, and he knows what he’s doing. “We knew he wasn’t going to lay over. He sure didn’ t make it easy on us. It was a battle I’ll always rem ember. I’m glad we pulled it out.” Now Dillon is preparing for his rookie season in Cu p, a run that most likely will see him bring the No. 3 t o the Cup circuit for the first time since Dale Earnhardt died in 2001. Earnhardt spent the bulk of his career dri ving for Dillon’s grandfather, Richard Childress, who no w fields Dillon’s cars. Dillon will also be getting a new teammate in veter an Ryan Newman, who is moving over from Stewart-Haas Racing to drive the No. 31 Chevrolet formerly drive n by Jeff Burton, whose 2014 plans have not been announc ed. Dillon said he’s looking forward to learning from Newman, who has 17 Cup and seven Nationwide victo-ries in his career. “He’s won races everywhere he’s been,” Dillon said. “And he’s a lot like us. He’s a family guy. He loves to hunt and fish and spend time in the outdoors. “He’s also very smart, and talented. I’m looking fo rward to pulling knowledge from him.”Austin Dillon has impressive 2013 Nationwide season ; claims Series title without having won a raceIowa Speedway purchased by NASCAR; will host Nationwide and Camping World Series in 2014 Bonus points earned by Matt Kenseth for leading laps in 2013, tops among all Sprint Cup drivers. Bonus points earned by Greg Biffle and Clint Bowyer, the fewest of all drivers who made the 2013 Chase for the Sprint Cup. Bonus points earned by David Ragan, 28th in the final Sprint Cup points standings, the most of any driver outside the top 15. Positions gained in the last 10 percent of Sprint Cup races in 2013 by Dale Earnhardt Jr., tops among all drivers.1118 56 68NUMERICALLY SPEAKING JTG Daugherty announces alliance with RCRJTG Daugherty Racing, which fields the No. 47 driven by A.J. Allmendinger, has announced a technical alliance with Richard Childress Racing. The team will be switching from Toyotas to Chevrolets as part of the move. “We certainly appreciate all the support that TRD (Toyota Racing Development) has provided to JTG Daugherty Racing for five years, and we are great fans of their busi-ness model,” JTG Daugherty Racing co-owner Tad Geschickter said in a release announcing the change. “As a single-car team, we feel that aligning directly with a successful multi-car organization like Richard Childress Racing is what will work best for us in 2014.”Harvick family escapes house fireKevin Harvick and his family got a scare last week when a fire broke out in their Oak Ridge, N.C., home. Reports indicated no injuries and only minor damage to their home.Josh Wise leaving Front Row MotorsportsFront Row Motorsports posted a message on its Facebook page last week stating that Josh Wise, driver of the team’s No. 35 Ford for the past two seasons, has accepted a job driv-ing for another, as yet unnamed, team beginning next season. The team said it plans to continue fielding the No. 35 and will likely have several different drivers share the ride. Wise ran 35 races this season, with an average finish of 34.9 and a best finish of 19th in the Aaron’s 499 at Talladega, a race in which his teammates David Ragan and David Gilliland finished 1-2.Almirola family announces new memberAric Almirola, driver of the No. 43 Ford at Richard Petty Motorsports, and his wife, Janice, announced the birth of their daughter, Abby Lynn Almirola, who was born last Thursday.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & PUZZLES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6-7, 2013 DEAR ABBY: My parents and sister live three hours away, so my family stays with me when they come to town. Over the last few years, I noticed things began to disappear from my home. They are usually small and portable -earrings, in particular. The idea of someone stealing from me was very upsetting. When I mentioned it to my sis-ter, she suggested that it could be our house-keeper. After my wedding band vanished, I had a security camera installed. A few months later, two more pairs of earrings went MIA, so I had the surveil-lance company review the tapes. It turns out the thief is my sister! The idea that she has gone through my things and helped herself with no remorse after I opened my home to her disgusts me. When I confronted her, she denied it. She later told my mother that she did take the earrings, but didn’t know why I wanted them “because they were so ugly.” Christmas is coming and I can no longer wel-come her to my home. Why would she do this to me? — TRUSTED MY SISTER IN RALEIGH, N.C. DEAR TRUSTED: Not knowing your sister, I can’t say for certain why she would steal from you. She may have klep-tomania and be unable to control her impulses. Or, she may resent you for what she perceives you have that she doesn’t (a happy life, lovely home, etc.) and has been taking the items to “even things up.” While I don’t blame you for being upset, please understand that whatever her reason, she’s a troubled woman who needs help. Unless you lock up anything of value, she should not be in your home.Group tired of partying should confess togetherDEAR ABBY: We are part of a group of couples who meet monthly at one another’s homes to play cards. We usually play in the evening from 7 to 11 with the hosting couple providing light refresh-ments and dessert. Many years ago, one couple designated December as “their” month to cele-brate New Year’s Eve. We start earlier with a meal and end after midnight. The issue is that it has lost its appeal. Many of us would prefer not to be out on that particular night. How do we, as a group, let them know we no longer want to have game night on New Year’s Eve without hurt-ing their feelings? They tend to be a sensitive cou-ple. — PARTIED OUT IN OREGON DEAR PARTIED OUT: Unless one of you is willing to be the messen-ger and speak for the rest of you, you should tell this couple as a group -well before the end of the year -that you would prefer not to be out on a night when many of the drivers on the road have been drinking. It’s a valid reason. While the New Year’s Eve card game may have become a tradition, times change, and as people mature they tend to make more mature decisions. The one you’re making ranks high among them. P.S. There should be no hurt feelings if you sug-gest that the card game take place at some other time.58-year-old divorcee should start lookingDEAR ABBY: I’m a 58-year-old male. My wife divorced me last year after 33 years of mar-riage. Must I wait the rec-ommended seven years before dating? I heard I must wait one year for every five I was married. — READY OR NOT IN MICHIGAN DEAR READY OR NOT: I wonder where you heard that! The answer is no. At 58, you had better start soon. You’re not getting any younger.Mom is slow to address daughter’s weightDEAR ABBY: I’m 12 and weigh 204 pounds. I feel really fat and I want to go on a diet, but my mom won’t let me. I’m getting bad grades in gym class and need your help. — SAD GIRL IN NEW HAMPSHIRE DEAR SAD GIRL: By recognizing that you have a problem that you can’t deal with on your own, you have already taken an important first step in resolving it. The next is to talk to your gym teacher about this and enlist her aid in convinc-ing your mother to give you the help you need. Childhood obesity is rampant in this coun-try, and all those extra pounds could negatively affect your health – not only now, but in the future. If you have a pediatrician, the doctor may be able to discuss the importance of a healthy diet and exercise program for you with your mom. You will need the help of other adults to make her understand if she can’t see that you need help now.Father does not accept girl’s interracial datingDEAR ABBY: I am 18 and dating someone of a different race. We have been together for more than a year. The problem is my father is very rac-ist. Every time I sneak out to go see my boy-friend, my father wants to know who I am with. I tell him it’s “my friends,” but he knows I’m lying. I want to tell him who I’m dating, but I know he’s going to be judgmen-tal and rude if I introduce him to my boyfriend. Any advice on what to do? — NERVOUS IN THE NORTHEAST DEAR NERVOUS: At 18 you are too old to be sneaking around. Your father knows something is up, and he probably suspects the reason you’re not being truthful or open, so stop lying. If he wants to know why you haven’t brought the young man around, tell him it’s because you know how he would react. And IF you decide to make introductions, be sure your boyfriend knows in advance what the reaction will probably be – if he agrees to meet your dad, that is. But I wouldn’t blame him if he didn’t. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Re-evaluate your choices. Make a list of what you have to offer and you’ll realize how you can tailor your services to a wider variety of clients. Spruce up your living quarters or alter your per-sonal routine. Don’t overin-dulge. ++++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Emotions coupled with stubbornness will hold you back. Shake off any ill feelings you might have and project a positive image if you want things to fall into place. Romance will improve a relationship that’s impor-tant to you. ++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Keep moving. You have no time to waste if you want to take advantage of the offers being made. A partnership appears to be undergo-ing positive changes that can increase your secu-rity and improve your life-style. Make travel plans. +++++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Lean toward unusual events and activities. The more you do to stretch your creative imagination, the more you will have to offer. Avoid overspending or making impulsive purchases if you go shopping. Self-improve-ment projects will bring good results. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t let emotional confusion hold you back. Get into the swing of things and enjoy getting together with friends. A change of plans or visit-ing or participating in a new place or activity will enhance your outlook. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A unique approach to a job you’ve been asked to do will bring you good for-tune. Don’t let a domestic problem cost you time and money. Make your choice clear and move on. Truth may be an issue. Check and present facts. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23Oct. 22): You may be in demand when it comes to giving advice, but be care-ful when dealing with emo-tional matters. What you say may be misconstrued as meddling, resulting in changes you will be forced to acknowledge and deal with. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Don’t leave anything to chance. As long as you stay on top of matters, you will have nothing to fear and no regrets. Dress your sur-roundings up to suit your personality, but don’t lose sight of the costs involved. Make romantic plans. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Memories will get you thinking about old friends. Make arrangements to reunite with someone you miss. Consider altering your current domestic situation. You can make a move, but be careful you don’t take on more than you can afford. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): High energy and a little finesse will get you into the game, but keeping you there will be another story. An impul-sive move may appear to be your best choice but, you are likely to have regrets. Focus on love, not money. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Don’t wait for someone to make choices for you. Jump in and do whatever has to be done in order to avoid delays or restrictions due to someone’s lack of transpar-ency. Emotions must not be ignored. Listen to your heart. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Dealing with institutions will be diffi-cult. Getting the information you need isn’t likely to fall into place easily. Misdirection and false accusations are apparent. Do your own legwork and get the facts before you make a permanent move. Better to be safe than sorry. +++ Happy Birthday: Use your innovation and under-standing to enlist others to help with whatever you take on. Your ability to zigzag your way in and out of whatever you face will show great strength, courage and responsibility. You can get ahead if you don’t display rigidity and if you are willing to put in the hours required to fin-ish what you start. Your numbers are 2, 8, 14, 24, 29, 33, 40.

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comThe Elks National Hoop Shoot started its run to state with the local lodge competition at the Lake City Middle School gym on Wednesday. Eastside Elementary Principal Trey Hosford is the Hoop Shoot chairper-son for the competition sponsored by Lake City Elks Lodge No. 893. “The local winners come from seven elemen-tary schools and the middle schools who participate,” Hosford said. “At each school the P.E. teacher runs it. Sometimes there are 200-300 kids per school in each age group. There are usu-ally 2,000 or more county-wide who participate and they send 35-40 to the local competition.” Participants shoot 25 free throws to determine girls and boys winners in three age groups. Taking the tro-phies on Wednesday were: Q 12-13 age group — Breonna Johnson of Eastside and Kaden Dobson of Pinemount Elementary; Q 10-11 age group — M’yana Scippio of Eastside and Jaquwn Claridy of Pinemount; Q 8-9 age group — Brooke Dicks of Summers Elementary and Caden Perry of Five Points Elementary. The local winners advance to district com-petition and potentially to region, both of which also will be at LCMS. “It will be good if they make it to region,” Hosford said. “That would be the third time shooting in the same gym. It would be a home court advantage.” If a competitor makes it through the state, Lake City Elks Lodge picks up the tab for the trip. “The Hoop Shoot has been going on for years,” said Hosford, a former head coach of Columbia High bas-ketball. “When I was grow-ing up I participated. When I came home from college I started doing it. I started off trying to help the bas-ketball program and now I do it for the Elks. They do a lot for our schools. It is a great partnership and the kids love it.” Andy Bennett, the P.E. teacher at Westside Elementary, expands his school competition to those younger than 8. “We have done it for a long time.” Bennett said. “We even do it for firstand second-graders to get a win-ner. We tie it into basket-ball for our school. There is really good participation. (The local) gives them a chance to come here and shoot on a good floor in a good gym with the lights on. It makes competition a little better.” Hosford said several of the teachers help with dis-trict and region even if their school does not have a par-ticipant. “I want to thank the P.E. teachers,” Hosford said. “It is not something required. It is something they add and they find a way to tie it in with their P.E. cur-riculum. They do it for their students and we couldn’t do it without them.” Debra Sloan is P.E. teacher at LCMS after years at Niblack Elementary and Five Points. “This gives them an opportunity to show their talent,” Sloan said. “The Elks are so nice to sponsor it. The winners can go on up. Sometimes scouts are watching them and it could help with scholarships.” The district competition will be in January. BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterKaleb Compton participates in the Elks National Hoop Sho ot.Champions advance to district competition PAUL BUCHANAN /Lake City ReporterFlorida State quarterback Jameis Winston warms up before a game earlier this season. Winston not charged in sexual assault caseBy GARY FINEOUTAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE — Florida State quarterback and Heisman Trophy can-didate Jameis Winston will not be charged with sexual-ly assaulting a woman who accused him of raping her about a year ago, a prosecu-tor said Thursday. State Attorney Willie Meggs made the announce-ment at a news conference, saying the woman’s mem-ory lapses of the events last December were prob-lematic and there was not enough evidence to win a conviction. The woman told police she had been drink-ing at a bar with friends before the alleged assault took place at an off-campus apartment. “It’s not inconsistencies, it’s lack of memory most of the time,” Meggs said of the woman’s allegations. While the alleged assault happened last December, reports didn’t surface in the public until November, as the redshirt freshman was well into a remarkable sea-son with Florida State. Winston, 19, has led the Seminoles to a No. 1 rank-ing and a shot at a national championship if they defeat Duke on Saturday in the ACC championship game. As for the Heisman, many voters were waiting to see whether he would be charged before the dead-line for ballots Monday. The trophy for the nation’s top player will be awarded Dec. 14. Meanwhile, the woman’s family was sharply critical of the Tallahassee Police Department, accusing the agency of delaying the investigation and discour-aging her from going for-ward with the case because of the public attention it would receive. “The victim has grave concerns that her experi-ence, as it unfolded in the public eye and through social media, will discour-age other victims of rape from coming forward and reporting,” according to a statement from the accuser and her family. The Associated Press does not identify alleged victims of sexual assault. The alleged assault was reported to police Dec. 7, 2012, but it wasn’t until last month before the public had any idea Winston was the subject of a sexual assault investigation. And it wasn’t until Thursday that specific details of the woman’s accu-sations began to emerge. She told police she and friends had five to six shots at a bar and her “memory is very broken from that point forward,” according to a search war-rant for cell phone records. She said she remembered being in a cab with a “non-descript” black man and going into an apartment, but she didn’t remember where it was. The warrant said she tried to fight the man off, and at some point, another man came into the room and told him to stop. But the two went into a bath-room “where he completed the act.”
