A Lake City man was
arrested Friday morning
after he threw six bags of
cocaine from his vehicle
during a chase by the Drug
Task Force.
The Multi-Jurisdictional
Drug Task Force, made up
of members from the
Columbia County Sheriff's
Office, Lake City Police
Department, Drug
Enforcement Agency and
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, was attempt-
ing to serve a felony


warrant to Willie Lee
Carter, 44, of 529 SE
Monroe St., when Carter
left the residence and head-
ed down Church Street.
Sheriff's deputies in
marked and unmarked
vehicles with activated
lights attempted to stop
Carter. Carter attempted to
flee from the deputies, and
threw items from the
vehicle.
After attempting to rm
patrol cars, Carter was
finally stopped and
arrested, deputies say.
Officers later recovered
the items thrown from the
vehicle, which field-tested
positive as cocaine.

Family seeks answers


in airport shooting


Father says agents
killed his son 'like
a dog' Wednesday.

By FREDDY PARRALES
Associated Press
RIO CLARO DE GOLFI-
TO, Costa Rica - Family
members of a man who was
shot dead by air marshals
in Miami after allegedly
announcing he had a bomb
demanded an explanation
of the killing from
U.S. authorities Friday.
"I can't understand why
U.S. authorities killed my
son in this way. He was not
a terrorist," Carlos Alpizar,


the 72-year old father of
Rigoberto Alpizar told The
Associated Press in the
family home in Rio Claro de
Golfito, near the Panama
border about 190 miles
south of Costa Rica's
capital, San Jose.
"Rigoberto loved every-
thing about his second
country," he said "And
look, they killed him like a
dog."
Rigoberto Alpizar, 44, left
his native Costa Rica for the
United States two decades
ago. He became a natural-
ized U.S. citizen and
worked for the U.S. chain
Home Depot.
Federal officials say
Alpizar made a bomb threat


in the jetway, after running
out of the plane. They said
they opened fire because
Alpizar ignored their
orders to stop, instead
reaching into his backpack.
Alpizar's brother, named
Carlos Alpizar like his
father, said the shooting
was unjustifiable.
"They say he was
carrying a bomb, but
Rigoberto and his wife had
passed the security zone,
they were checked thor-
oughly and still they killed
him," he said.
Alpizar's remains will be
buried next to those of his
mother, Francisca Medina,

safety measures, gation, and the plane's voice ILLINOIS


By MIKE COLIAS,
Associated Press
CHICAGO - A deadly
accident in which a Boeing
737 slid off the end of a
snowy runway brought
renewed demands Friday
for buffer zones or other
safety measures at hundreds
of airports around the nation
to give pilots a wider margin
for error.
In Thursday night's
tragedy at Midway Airport, a
Southwest Airlines jet mak-
ing a landing plowed
through a fence and into a
street, killing a 6-year-old
boy in a car. Ten other peo-
ple, most of them on the
ground, were injured.
The National


sent to Washington for
analysis. But much of the
attention focused on the
6,500-foot runway.
Like nearly 300 other U.S.
commercial airports,
Midway lacks 1,000-foot
buffer zones at the ends of
its runways. Midway, a com-
pact one mile square, was
built in 1923 during the pro-
peller era and has shorter
runways than most major
airports, with no room to
extend them because it is
hemmed in by houses and
businesses.
Safety experts say such
airports can guard against
accidents by instead using
beds of crushable concrete
that can slow an aircraft if it
slides off the end of a run-

called Engineered Material

- are in place at the end of
18 runways at 14 airports.

Shelter seeks donations


for four-legged friends


Shelter collecting
items for Christmas
gifts for animals.

By LINDSAY DOWNEY
Idowney@lakecityreporter. corn
While several area groups
are collecting food and toys
for needy people this holiday
season, one organization is
thinking of a different seg-
ment of the population - the
animals.


Cans of Pedigree food and
bags of kitty litter lay under
the red-ribboned Christmas
tree inside the Lake City
Animal Shelter. The shelter is
in need of food, toys, litter and
pet grooming supplies.
"We handle so many ani-
mals," shelter director
Margaret Smith said. "Last
year we handled over 9,000."
The'organization has had a
holiday donation drive for
about 20 years. It currently is
accepting donations at its
shelter, 1392 NW Shelter


Glen, and at a station in the
middle of the Lake City Mall.
On Friday morning, one
woman stopped by the shelter
to make a cash donation with
Honey, the 9-month-old
Chihuahua she adopted there
about three weeks ago. Smith
said Honey was thin when her
owner took her home, but now
the tan-colored dog has put on
weight.

Probst to stay with 'Survivor'


LOS ANGELES - Jeff Probst says
he's decided that life without
"Survivor" wouldn't be as much fun
and he's sticking with the CBS reality
series.
"I was thinking about retiring and
spending my time traveling to exotic
locations around the world, meeting
new and interesting people. Then I
realized, uh, wait a second, I'm already
doing that with 'Survivor' and getting
paid for it, as well," Probst, 44, said in a
statement Thursday.


Ho feeling better
after heart surgery
HONOLULU - Hawaiian
crooner Don Ho, who had an
experimental procedure on
his ailing heart earlier this
week, says he's feeling much
better and may return home
to the islands within a few
days.
Ho, known for his
signature tune, 'Tiny
Bubbles," remained at a
Thailand hospital, where he is
recovering from an
experimental stem cell
procedure. He was moved out
of intensive care Wednesday.

He has signed a new multiyear deal,
CBS spokesman Chris Ender said.
Probst said in October that he was
weighing whether to continue with the
show. He has hosted "Survivor" since it
debuted in summer 2000 and his
contract ends with the edition now in
production.
Mark Burnett, the show's executive
producer, lauded Probst's contributions
to the "ever-evolving game" in which
players face physical and mental
challenges in a bid to win $1 million.


and I'm so happy I came up
here to do it," the 75-year-old
entertainer said in a
statement Thursday. "I'm
looking forward to coming
home."
His publicist released a
photo showing a shirtless,
baseball cap-wearing Ho
smiling and waving a
Hawaiian "shaka" hang-loose
sign from his hospital bed in
Bangkok. The photo also
shows a big red heart-shaped
pillow, several tubes attached
to his body and Ho wearing
his trademark
raspberry-tinted sunglasses.
'Tell my fans to stay
healthy," he said. "I'Tm ready


Jeff Probst


to go another 50 years."
Ho may return to Hawaii
within a few days, much
earlier than planned.
Dr. Amit Patel, a heart
surgeon from the University
of Pittsburgh Medical Center
who oversaw the procedure in
Bangkok, said Ho may be
singing before Christmas.

Banks to send
children to college
LOS ANGELES -
Supermodel and TV talk-
show host Tyra Banks says
corporate donors will
provide a computer,
clothing allowances and


college tuition for seven
children who were
orphaned when their
mother was mowed down
by tow truck.
The children of Rosa
Carrera, who was killed in
the October accident in
suburban Vernon, appeared
on 'The Tyra Banks Show"
on Wednesday to discuss
how the family is holding up.
"I'm like the mother now
of all these kids and so I
have to hold it together,"
said 18-year-old Karla
Becerra. The other children
range in age from 6 to 17.

Brothers charged
with trafficking
MIAMI - Two Venezuelan
brothers are facing federal
weapons trafficking charges
in Miami for seeking to
illegally ship more than
40 assault rifles to their native
country. ,
The indictment alleges that
from about Sept. 23 until
their arrest on Sept. 26,
Luciano Dibattista,.36, and
his brother Romeo Dibattista,
45, conspired to export to
Venezuela automatic weapons
without obtaining the
required State Department
license. The two allegedly
.met with an undercover agent
to purchase 30 AK-47 and
Colt M-4 Carbines for about
$24,500. During that time,
they offered to buy another
10 rifles the following week,
according to court papers.
Both were arrested while
purchasing the weapons,
according to court
documents.
"At no time did the
defendants, Luciano
Dibattista and Romeo
Dibattista, apply for, receive,
or possess a license to export
defense articles of any
description," the indictment
states.
The two also face illegal
arms possession charges.
Both men have pleaded not
guilty. Messages left for their
attorneys by The Associated
Press were not immediately
returned. The brothers were
being detained without bail.

Family seeks helping hand from community


By LINDA YOUNG
lyoung@lakecityreporter. corn

A White Springs resident
is appealing to the communi-
ty for help after losing her
home to fire Nov. 30.
Although Debra Coleman
has received some
emergency help since the
fire, she needs more.
Coleman could not be
reached for comment at
press time.


White Springs Police
Department Officer Tracy
Capallia supplied details on
who was affected and what
help Coleman has received
since fire destroyed the
home.
"I believe there were four
adults and two children and
I know the community
churches have been donating
things," Capallia said. "I
called Red Cross and they're
helping. But they need more


help, of course."
Although the White
Springs Volunteer Fire
Department responded to
the fire at Coleman's home in
six minutes, the house was a
loss and the cause is still
under investigation, said
Volunteer Fire Chief Steve
Stith.
"We did have mutual aid

Man disappears on cruise ship during honeymoon


By CURT ANDERSON
AP Legal Affairs Writer


MIAMI - The parents
and sister of a Connecticut
man who disappeared from a
cruise ship during his honey-
moon in July said Friday they
want answers from Royal
Caribbean Cruises Ltd.
about what happened and
are preparing to file a lawsuit
against the company.
"No parent should have to
go through what we've had
to go through," said
Maureen Smith, mother of
26-year-old George Allen
Smith IV. "We just want to
know where he is - what
happened to him."
Smith, of Greenwich,
Conn., vanished July 5 from
the Royal Caribbean ship
Brilliance of the Seas sailing
in the Mediterranean Sea
between Greece and Turkey.
The family's attorney,
Brett Rivkind, said the death
was suspicious because
blood stains were found
inside and outside Smith's
cabin, and there . were
reports from other passen-
gers of a loud commotion
inside the room before Smith
went missing.
Rivkind said the family
believes Smith was

that Royal Caribbean has
attempted a cover-up, includ-

disappearance an accident,
to protect the company and
the cruise industry from bad
publicity. The FBI has been
investigating, but has made
no arrests.
"We believe that's because
of the cover-up," said Smith's

sister, Bree Smith.
In a statement Friday,
Royal Caribbean expressed
sympathy to the Smiths for
"a terrible tragedy" but
insisted the company con-
ducted a thorough search of
the ship and promptly con-
tacted investigative agencies.
Evidence ranging,from secu-
rity camera tapes to credit-
card receipts had been pro-
vided to the FBI, the


company said.
"We know this is a trau-
matic time for George
Smith's wife, parents, other
family members and friends,
but we believe we responded
appropriately, and we will'
continue to work with the
FBI until George Smith's
disappearance is explained,"
the statement said.
Rivkind said the lawsuit
would likely be filed in a few
weeks in Miami-Dade Circuit
Court seeking unspecified
punitive and compensatory
damages for the family.
Smith's wife, Jennifer Hagel
Smith, has retained her own
lawyer and did not attend
Friday's news conference.
Although the lawsuit will
seek monetary damages,
Bree Smith said the family is
most concerned with draw-
ing attention to their loved
one's case and to push for
changes in the law to better
protect cruise passengers
and families.
U.S. Rep. Christopher
Shays, R-Conn., is scheduled
to hold hearings next week
on the cruise industry and
how it responds to cases sim-
ilar to Smith's. The Smith
family will provide written
testimony for those
hearings, Bree Smith said.

Young mother seeks

help to keep home


From staff reports


Janet Jordan's family is in
need and she's looking to her
community for help.
Jordan's granddaughter,
Amber Nevaeh Kline, was
born Saturday - two months
premature. She weighed
3 pounds, 4 ounces.
The baby's mother, Jackie
"Beth" Jordan, 18, is taking
time off work to stay with her
newborn at Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital while her
boyfriend works. Without
Beth Jordan's income, the
couple can barely pay their
rent.


"If they don't get some
kind of help, they're going to
lose their home," Janet
Jordan said. "We're just look-
ing for a little bit of help to
keep them above water."
So far, Janet Jordan has
raised about $65 at Wayne's
RV Resort. She will look for
additional help on Saturday
at Lake City Speedway and
she plans to place donation
jars in the next few days at B
& B Food Store locations.
"As long as they're both
working, they'll be OK,"
Jordan said. "I just don't want
them to lose what they've
got."

County takes

first step in

fight against

Asian Bird flu

Fears of a spread in Bird Flu
have experts in Europe and
Asia on the alert. Closer to
home in the United States,
the Centers for Disease
Control are also keeping a watchful eye
on the potential epidemic. While there
have been no reported cases in the
United States, there have now been
70 confirmed deaths in Asia.
Now,the virus has been detected in
poultry in the Ukraine's Crimean
peninsula. Initial estimates suggest the
possibility that a bird flu pandemic
could kill more than 1.5 million people
worldwide.
Fortunately, officials in Columbia
County have already begun to devise a
plan to deal with a potential outbreak.
They participated in a Pandemic
Pandemonium meeting, discussing the
possibilities and aftermath of a deadly
flu outbreak with-officials from around
the state.
With Lake City sitting at the hub of
Interstates 10 and 75 and U.S. 90, the
potential for an outbreak of the flu
dispersed in transit is a very real threat.
Columbia County also has a number of.
poultry farms in the area.
The exercise was an eye-opening
experience for local leaders. While
there is no definite local plan to combat
the flu, you can be assured that our
county leaders and health officials won't
turn a blind eye to the potential threat.
The first step is education - and the
pandemic meeting has definitely
educated officials about the reality of
the situation.
We can expect local officials will take
this seriously and work with state and
federalagencies to-have aplanin place,
just in ca-se their 'worst frars are
realized---- --

OTHER VIEWS

Americans are living longer and better


This news has been routine
for more than a hundred
years, but it's still good to
hear: Americans are living
longer than ever. A baby born
in 2003 can expect a record
lifespan of 77.6 years, up from
77.3 the year before and up
over two years from the life
expectancy in 1990.
And more babies will have a
chance to live that long.
Continuing a 47-year decline,
infant mortality in 2003
declined to 6.9 deaths per
1,000 live births.
The increased longevity is
due to improvements in
medicine and to something
else as well: We pay for it.
Spending on health care in
2003 was $1.7 trillion, up from


14.9 percent of GDP in 2002 to
15.3 percent. Spending on
prescription drugs rose
11 percent, and it's a safe
prediction that there will be
even bigger spending
increases now that the federal
government is paying for
drugs under Medicare.
These numbers are
courtesy of the Centers for
Disease Control and
Prevention and the National
Center for Health Statistics,
two agencies that worry about
our well-being. The CDC
director, Dr. Julie Gerberding,
used the occasion of these
happy numbers to lecture
baby boomers, those born-
between 1946 and 1964, as
they prepare to retire in their


millions.
True, deaths from heart
disease, cancer and stroke's
continued to drop, but the
CDC found that rates of
hypertension and obesity,
which can lead to all sorts of
bad things, were higher for
those born in the 1940s than
for those in the generation
born in the 1930s.
Gerberding urged those in
the 55-to-64 age group to
adopt a healthy lifestyle,
because although there are
29 million of them today, there
will be 40 million of them in
2014. An ever-lengthening life
expectancy is good only if that
life is worth living.

COMMENTARY


'Tis the season

to pick fights
WASHINGTON
t's beginning to look a lot like - a cranky
Christmas. President Bush can't even pick
a card that pleases everybody. He's taking
heat for sending out Christmas cards this
year that failed - once again - to wish
anyone a merry Christmas.
You know the holiday spirit is in short supply
when the president who's a born-again
Christian gets trashed for being insufficiently
religious.
Or when, with all the scandals on Capitol Hill,
House Speaker Dennis Hastert becomes a
profile in courage for deciding that the Capitol
Christmas Tree be called just that - and not a
"holiday tree."
people see a
conspiracy in
the flashing
traffic signs that
say "Drive
Carefully" and
"Happy
Holidays"-
but not "Merry Marsha Mercer
Christmas." mmercer@mediageneral.com
More about that
in a minute.
This season of peace and joy feels less merry
than wary. People who should be bringing us
together have cast Christmas as another Us vs.
Them experience.
Televangelist Jerry Falwell and others warn
that Christmas is in danger, under siege from
the political correctness folks. Falwell
reportedly e-mailed half a million supporters
asking for help with his "Friend or Foe
Christmas Campaign." The campaign's stated
aim is to reassure retailers and others that
Christmas is still legal, but it's a shame the
campaign had to have foe in the title.
Fox Network's Bill O'Reilly fanned the flame,
as did his Fox colleague John Gibson, whose
book has the windy title, 'The War on
Christmas: How the Liberal Plot to Ban the
Sacred Christian Holiday Is Worse Than You
Thought."
People and groups that support separation of
church and state were forced to deny they were
attacking Christmas. Calling a Christmas tree a
holiday tree reflects the country's diversity,
they said. Not everybody celebrates Christmas,
and it's only fair to respect others' views. What
about the Constitution?
Enough already.
Americans have enough enemies in the
world without making Christmas a
battleground. If we're not careful, Christmas
could become a wedge issue. Ringing the
culture alarm is a trusty way to raise pulses and
money on both sides, but it's time for a truce in
this trumped-up "war."
A few years ago, "Xmas" riled people. Xmas
was a sign of the crass commercialism of
Christmas. These days, Xmas-the-term has
practically been eradicated but commercialism
thrives.
Foes and plots aside, does anybody really
think less of Laura Bush when she wishes
White House guests "Happy Holidays"?
Every year, the Bushes send generic cards.
This year's card has a Jamie Wyeth painting of
the White House with Bush dogs Barney and
Miss Beazley and cat India frolicking in the
snow. There's no manger scene, no mention of
Christmas, not even "Xmas."
"With best wishes for a holiday season of
'hope and happiness," the card reads. That
message is right under a Bible verse from the
Book of Psalms in the Old Testament.
The Republican National Committee paid for
the Bushes' cards, which went out to 1.4 million
people. The editor of a conservative Web site
told the Washington Post he threw out his card
as soon as he got it.
People who keep track of such things say no
president has wished people a merry Christmas
on holiday cards since Bush's dad and mother
in 1992.
It matters to some people this year because
antennae are twitching to pick up real or
imagined PC signals.
A flap in Sapulpa, Okla., centered on
complaints that someone was trying to slight
Christmas with the name of the town's annual
parade. The Associated Press reported dozens
of angry callers and e-mails objected to the
town's Winterfest Christmas Parade.
But there'd been no change in the name. The
local chamber of commerce quieted everybody
down by announcing that the entire name of
the parade remained the Sapulpa Chamber
Winterfest Christmas Parade. Crisis averted.
In Dothan, Ala., last week, people were
suspicious when the electronic signs at high,
traffic areas around the city flashed "Buckle Up
for Safety" and "Happy Holidays" - but not
"Merry Christmas." Why not?
The police chief explained that no offense
was intended. The messages simply were set to


run from Thanksgiving through New Year's.
Some callers also urged the authorities to
require shop clerks to say "Merry Christmas."
What's next - holly jolly jail?

Hurricane slashes state



orange harvest by 15 percent


By TRAVIS REED
Associated Press


ORLANDO - Hurricane
Wilma's late-season sprint
across Florida will trim citrus
production about 15 percent,
but more fruit should still be
harvested than last year's
storm-ravaged crop, federal
officials said Friday. Still, the
storm could cause a spike in
orange juice prices.
The U.S. Department of
Agriculture's citrus forecast
predicted a 28 million drop in


boxes of oranges, each
containing about 90 pounds of
fruit, from October reports
predicting 190 million boxes
this season. Additionally, aver-
age fruit sizes for early-mid-
season and Valencia oranges
were expected to be the.small-
est at harvest in a decade. If
forecasts for those oranges
stay on course, it would be the
smallest crop since a freeze
damaged the 1989-90 season,
the USDA said.
The Category 3 Wilma hit


Florida's southwest coast at
Naples on Oct. 24 and tore
east, hurling 125 mph winds
through the state's southern
citrus production area. Three
storms hit the state's citrus
region last year.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture estimated Wilma
caused $180 million to
$200 million in citrus damage
- and a $2 billion to $3 billion
hit to the agriculture industry
as a whole. Still harder hit
than citrus farmers were


vegetable growers and nurs-
eries that produce bushes,
trees and house plants.
The state's grapefruit fore-
cast dropped one-third, from
24,000 boxes to 16,000 in
Friday's USDA report, while
tangerines fell only slightly,
from 6,000 to 5,700 boxes.
"We knew there would be
some reductions with Wilma,
so it's not real surprising,"
said Jay Clark, a citrus and
cattle grower in Hardee
County.


Bankrupt Winn-Dixie says it made


money in October, November


By RON WORD
Associated Press Writer

JACKSONVILLE - After
suffering devastating losses
over the past year, bankrupt
Winn-Dixie Stores Inc.
reported it made $225.7 mil-
lion in October and
November.
According to monthly state-
ments filed. in U.S.
Bankruptcy Court, the super-
market giant had net earnings
of $39.8 million for the four
weeks ending Nov. 16, and
$195 million for the four
weeks ending Oct. 19.
The supermarket chain,
which filed for bankruptcy in
February, said identical
store sales increased 2.9 per-

cent for the first eight weeks
of the 2006 second quarter,
compared to the same period
,in fiscal 2005. The sales rep-
resent an improvement from
the 4.5 percent decline in
identical store sales in the
third and fourth quarters of
fiscal 2005.
Peter Lynch, president
and CEO of Winn-Dixie, pre-
dicted in a news release
Thursday that Winn-Dixie
would emerge from bank-
ruptcy by June, about
15 months after it filed for
reorganization under
Chapter 11 of the bankruptcy
code.


"Our turnaround efforts
are succeeding," Lynch said.
Burt P Flickinger III, man-
aging director of Strategic
Resources Group, which
tracks supermarket trends,
said doesn't know whether
the two-month improvement
is a permanent turnaround or
a transitory increase.
"It doesn't tell the whole
story until you see December.
They really went into the tank
last December," he said.
According to documents
filed with the U.S. Securities
and Exchange Commission,
Winn-Dixie lost $554 million
for the first quarter of its fis-
cal 2006, which began June
30, compared with a $153
million loss during the same


period last year.
Winn-Dixie filed for reor-
ganization in February after
reporting huge financial
losses and a tightening of
vendor credit.
The company has sold,
closed or abandoned
326 stores and three distri-
bution centers. As of
Sept. 21, it operated
587 stores in five southeast-
ern states and the Bahamas.
On Friday, .Winn-Dixie
shares closed up 26.5 cents,
or 45 percent, to 82 cents per
share in over the counter
trading. The company's
shares have traded from
6 cents per share to $5.05 per.
share during the last
.52 weeks.


Legislature eliminates freebies paid for by lobbyists

TALLAHASSEE -
Lobbyists can no longer pay

Sponsors withdrew a provi-
sion that would have prevent-
ed lobbyists from- circum-
venting the ban by giving
money to political parties so
they could use it to pay for
lawmakers' food and drink.
They promised it would be
brought up in the regular
session that begins in March.

Executive Director Ben
Wilcox, often a critic of the
relationships between, law-
makers and lobbyists,
praised the gift ban.
"It will make legislators
more careful," Wilcox said.
"As they get used to operat-
ing under these new rules,
they'll actually feel. more
comfortable in the long run
because they won't have to
worry about what they're
accepting is over $25 or
under $100."
The bill passed in the
Senate after more than two
hours of debate whether law-
makers can still take free
gumbo, cookies - or even
fried chicken - at events


hosted by lobbyists.
"There are a lot of folks in
this state who think that a
meal does buy your vote,"
said Sen. Jim Sebesta,
R-St. Petersburg, sponsor of
the Senate's bill.
Many lawmakers on both
sides of the aisle were
uncomfortable with the
measure.
"This bill treats legislators
worse than it does the gener-
al public," complained Sen.
Steve Geller, D-Hallandale
Beach, one of three
Democrats who cast the only
"no" votes in the Senate. The
others were Sens. Al Lawson
of Tallahassee and Gary
Siplin of Orlando.

Catholic diocese
created in Vietnam
HANOI, Vietnam - About
10,000 people participated in
a ceremony for the creation
of a new Roman Catholic
diocese, the first in more
than 30 years in Vietnam, in
another sign of thawing
relations between the
communist government and
the Holy See.
The ceremony to create
Ba Ria Diocese was presided
over by Cardinal Crescenzio
Sepe, who heads the
Vatican's evangelization
office, the Rev. Nguyen
Duc Quynh of Chu Hai parish
said. Monsignor Thomas
Nguyen Van Tram was
appointed the bishop of
Ba Ria.
Ba Ria Diocese will have
more than 220,000 Catholics,
Quynh said Sunday.
Phan Thiet Diocese in the
southern coastal province of
Binh Thuan was the last new
diocese established in
Vietnam in January 1975.
Last week, Sepe also
presided over the ordination
of 57 priests in Hanoi, the
largest number of clergy
added to the communist
country in a single ceremony.
During his visit, Sepe met
with several government
officials including Deputy
Prime Minister Vu Khoan.

Treatment violated
religious freedom
DETROIT - A Roman
Catholic man who pleaded
guilty to drug possession and
chose treatment instead of
prison says his religious
freedoms v\ere violated when
a judge.sent him to a
Pentecostal-run program,
then put him in jail when he
quit.
Joseph Hanas says the staff
told him his religion was
"witchcraft" and took away
his rosary beads, and he told
the judge he wanted out - a
decision he says landed him
in jail.
The American Civil
Liberties Union of Michigan
asked a federal judge
Tuesday to overturn Hanas'
conviction, saying he had
been punished for, his
religious beliefs. The ACLU
says the case illustrates the
pitfalls of government
partnerships with faith-based
programs.
Genesee County Circuit
Judge Robert Ransom, who
sent Hanas to the program
and has since retired, said
participation was voluntary.

Pray for church
lost at ground zero
NEWYORK-As
Christians around the World
celebrated St. Nicholas Day,
the Greek Orthodox faithful
headed for ground zero to
pray for the St. Nicholas
Church lost in the
2001 terrorist attack. -
"This 36-foot tall church
was just a stone's throw away
from the trade center. People
tried to buy air rights over it,
or to move it," said Peter
Drakoulias, a member of the
almost century-old
congregation. "But the
church stayed. It was always
the little church that could."
The big question now is:
Will the tiny house of
worship that stood on
24-by-55 square feet of
ground zero be part of the
rebuilt World Trade Center
site?
"We're working closely
with St. Nicholas, the Port
Authority and other partners
to find an agreeable location
for a rebuilt church on the


World Trade Center site,"
John Gallagher, a spokesman
for the Lower Manhattan
Development Corp., said
Tuesday.

Part of Princeton's rare Islamic



texts collection to go online


By WAYNE PARRY
Associated Press

PRINCETON, N.J. - In a
marriage of new technology
and old documents, a vast
treasure trove of information
about life in the early Islamic
world is about to go online,
enabling Muslims, scholars
and the merely curious to
peer into a window on the
faith's rich history.
Numbering more than
10,000 texts, Princeton
University's collection of
handwritten Islamic docu-
ments, books and letters is
the largest in North America.
They date from the eighth
and ninth centuries - soon
after the faith was founded -
to the fall of the Ottoman
Empire in the early
1900s; most have gone
unseen outside New Jersey
for nearly a century.
Now the university is
starting a four-year project to
categorize the entire
collection, and to digitize and
post online about 200 of the'
most important works so that
scholars around the world can
study them.
"Our collection really is a
world resource," said Don C.
Skemer, Princeton's curator
of manuscripts. "Every single
subject you can imagine that
you could find in a library, it's
all there."
Documents to be scanned
include rare, ornamental
Qurans dating back to the
ninth century; interpretations
of the Quran and Islamic law,

trous hundreds of years later,
the books include drawings
depicting ancient battles and
conquests.
A botanical manual from.
the 15th century includes
drawings and descriptions of
different types of leaves and
plants. There are even
instructions on how to write a
good letter.
The collection was amassed
mostly by a Princeton
University alumnus in the late
1800s and given to the
university in 1942. Written in
Arabic script in Persian,


Turkish and other languages,
the manuscripts are stored in
special climate-controlled
vaults guarded by an
elaborate security system.
"You couldn't put a price on
it," Skemer said. "It's a
collection that took over
100 years to put together."
Yaser El-Menshawy, chair-
man of Majlis Ash-Shura of
New Jersey, the state's council
of mosques, said the material
will help Muslim scholars -
and ordinary Muslims -
around the world learn more
about their heritage.
"One of the things that
really makes life easier for
Muslims is the availability of
information on the Web," he
said. "For instance, I have to
give, sermons, and lots of


times, it's so much easier today
than it was 10 years ago; you
just go online and enter the
topic you want to speak about,
and there's so much there.
'"The higher up you go in
terms of scholars, the more
important it is to have
information available,"
El-Menshawy said. "I think
there will be a lot of interest in
this."
The texts to be reproduced
online will be photographed by
special cameras that will not
damage the delicate inks and
papers; scanned into large
graphic files and eventually
posted on the Internet.
Overhead digital cameras to be
used for the project can photo-
graph only about 4 or 5 pages
per hour because of the large


size of the files.
"It's a very exacting
process," Skemer said. 'You
want to do it, and you want it to
be permanent; you don't want
to have to go back and do it
again at some point."
About 200 of the texts
should be scanned within the
next two years, and it should
take another year and a half to
two years to have them online.
Others may be added in the
future, Skemer said.
The digitized texts will be
made available with no strings
attached.
"There are no copyright
issues with these," Skemer
said. "There are no impedi-
ments at all. It's a common
heritage, and they will be
available to anyone to look at."


By RICHARD N. OSTLING
AP Religion Writer

NEW YORK - The presti-
gious Jewish Theological
Seminary has sponsored
dialogues with all sorts of
American religious and ethnic
groups during the past 67
years, but never with evangel-
ical Protestants - until last
week.
Conservative Judaism's
prime campus was the site for
respectful talks between
national-level figures from
both faiths, with participants
agreeing on support for Israel
and greater willingness from
each side to learn about the
other. But there also was
evident wariness on domestic
politics, reflecting the
complicated relationship
between the two groups.
Planning for the meeting,
co-sponsored by Baylor and
Temple universities, began in
2002. It probably wouldn't
have happened in years past.
One expert panelist,
University of Akron political
scientist John Green, noted
polls that-show--evangelicals
are no more negative toward
Jews than other Americans
and that their attitudes have
softened markedlysiiice an

David Neff, editor of
Christianity'Today magazine,
said in an interview between
sessions at the conference that
evangelical "values voters"
don't see themselves as pursu-
ing "a move to Christianize
America, but to shore up the
morals of a decadent society."
During the public panels,
the evangelicals were
understandably at pains to
emphasize their movement's
political diversity.
Richard Cizik, Washington
representative of the National
Association of Evangelicals,
told the meeting that some
pursue a "power strategy" but
most evangelicals don't
subscribe to that model. "Most
evangelicals know in their
hearts that's wrong."
"You have nothing to fear
from evangelicals," he said.
Michael Cromartie of the
Ethics and Public Policy
Center said that "evangelicals,
theologically, have strong
convictions, but when it comes
to public life they have learned
to put them aside."
Such utterances caused
Mark Silk of Trinity College
to remark: "It would help if
more moderate voices from
the evangelical community
were heard above the din."

Christmas comes to town tonight


By LINDA YOUNG
lyoung@lakecityreporter. comr

Santa Photo Night and a
Christmas concert make
Olustee Park the place to go
for both children and adults
looking for free
entertainment tonight.
"The first 400 kids who
visit will get a free photo-
graph of them with Santa,"
said Downtown Action
Corporation (DAC)
Vice-Chair Harvey Campbell.
The Polaroid photos are
provided by DAC and the
Lake City Veterans Affairs
Hospital Volunteer
Association, Campbell said.
"This is the 24th year we've
(DAC) done free photos,
Santa and the Festival of
Lights," Campbell said.
Santa will be in his house
from 6-9 p.m. today. Until
Dec. 21, Santa will be in his
house 6-8 p.m. Monday
through Saturday, unless it
rains. Another exception will
be Snow Day, Dec. 17, when
Santa will be there from
5-8 p.m., Campbell said.

People admire Christmas lights in front of the courthouse in Olustee Park Friday evening.


"The concert is by
Parkview Baptist Church and
it's called 'Merry Christmas
Lake, City'," Campbell said.
A 40-person choir from the
church will perform two con-
certs today in the gazebo, at
6 and 7:30 p.m.
The church has performed
Christmas concerts for years,


"This is the first year we've
taken it outside," said Ralph
Estevez, associate pastor
minister of music at Parkview
Baptist Church. "Our church
wants to say Merry
Christmas to Lake City. We
have a gift tote bag that has
six home-baked cookies."
Along with 1,000 tote bags


of cookies, the church will
serve concert attendees free
hot chocolate and coffee.
Musical selections include
a "mixture of traditional
Christmas carols, as well as
we'll do a new musical depict-
ing the Christmas story,"
Estevez said. "We'll .have
some light drama.

els competed against each
other and raised $1,200.
In addition, the school's
classes competed against
each other in the fundraising
effort, with Jill Huesman's
class taking the top prize after
raising $427.
Keen said other school
clubs, organizations and par-
ents have also contributed as
much as $50-$100 donations.
The Fort White High
School student government
set a $2,005 fundraising goal
for the project and Keen said-


they are about $500 away
from reaching the goal.
'The proceeds will go to
the North Central Florida
Chapter of the American Red
Cross," Keen said.
"They tell us that most
donations go to the national
Red Cross office, so they are
very honored that we would
donate directly to them.

tive (from the Red Cross),

"The animals always get
excited when they. come

long because I think they
remember us."
On any given day, the shel-
ter cares for more than
100 animals, many who come
in thin and undernourished.
"We handle more dogs
than we do cats, but that
trend is kind of changing,"
Smith said.
Smith said the shelter is
beginning to take in more
stray cats as they gain in pet-
popularity. People who work
long hours are finding cats
easier to care for because
they usually are more
independent than dogs.
The animal shelter looks
for contributions year-round,
but it especially gets a lot of
monetary donations and sup-
plies during the holidays,
and this year has been no
exception.
"It has been good," Smith
said. "We've got a lot of sup-

This year's fundraiser
marks the second consecu-
tive year Fort White High
School has had a fundraising
drive for the American Red
Cross.
Last year, the school made
a $1,201 donation and earlier
this school year American
Red Cross representatives
asked students and school
officials if they would consid-
er making another donation
this year.
"From that our student
body president, Ben


Anderson, took that and said
we were looking to do some-
thing as a community service
and we need to take this and
run with it and see how far we
can exceed last year's
amount," Keen said. 'This is
the first year we've made it a
schoolwide campaign to
reach a goal and a lot of peo-
ple are getting into it."
School officials plan to give
the funds to the American
Red Cross officials in
January, during a brief
presentation in Gainesville.

County Sheriff Bill Gootee. "I
received several complaints
about his alleged drug activi-
ty and I turned that informa-
tion over to Lt. (Jerry) Jewett
and the Task Force. They did
an outstanding job of elimi-'
nating this supply of drugs

Carter was charged with
possession of cocaine with

sion of cocaine to sell within
1,000 feet of a church, fleeing

vated assault on a law

The amount and street

"I keep saying it, but my

"We want them to rest
together," said the elder
Carlos Alpizar, explaining
that the family had reached
an agreement with Rigoberto
Alpizar's wife, U.S. citizen
Anne Buechner, to bury
Rigoberto in his homeland.
Buechner told witnesses
and police that Rigoberto suf-
fered from bipolar mental dis-
order and was off his medica-
tion when he became agitat-
ed and began running
through the aisles of a com-
mercial airliner that was
about to depart from Miami
to Orlando on Wednesday.


However on Thursday,
another brother Rolando
Alpizar told Costa Rican
Channel 7 television that fam-
ily members were not aware
that his brother had any men-
tal problems and he
described Rigoberto as "a
very honest, very
hardworking, responsible
person."
The father said his son
called him often and came
home last July to accompany
him to the doctor for a heart
problem. Before he returned
to the United States, he left
notes throughout the house
to remind his father to take
his medication.

BRIEFS


COLLEGE FOOTBALL
Mom says Gators
QB will transfer
GAINESVILLE -
Freshman quarterback
Josh Portis has decided to
transfer from Florida, a
newspaper reported Friday.
Portis' mother, Patricia,
told The Gainesville Sun
that her son plans to leave
school after the No. 16
Gators play No. 25 Iowa in
the Outback Bowl on Jan. 2.
Patricia Portis cited a
lack of playing time as the
main reason for her son's
decision.
'The bottom line is (the
coaches) won't let his
talent be shown on the
field," she said. "Maybe he
needs to be at an institution
where all his talents, can be
taken care of. He needs to.
grow. He needs to be in a
situation where they will
develop him and not put
him in one play and take
him out the next. They
would only let him run the
ball and if he made one
mistake and they would
take him out.
"A lot of things were told
to him in recruiting. Coach
(Urban) Meyer never told
him he would start (as a
freshman), but he said he
would give him a fair chance
to compete. Josh feels he
hasn't gotten that chance."
Meyer, who did not
immediately return a call
from the Associated Press
on Friday, said earlier in
the week that he hoped to
give Portis some playing
time in the bowl game.

Miami Heat's Shaquille

Thursday in a private

The

earlier in the day to avoid

Leesburg defeats Columbia High


Two second-half goals in
the span of a minute
lead to Tigers' 5-0 loss.
By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter.com
Sometimes in soccer, a game can
turn in the blink of an eye. That hap-
pened to the Columbia High boys
team on Friday night in a 5-0 loss to
Leesburg High.


The Tigers were within striking dis-
tance, down 2-0 with only 19 minutes
left to play when simultaneous yellow
cards on Leesburg striker Kevin
Custer and CHS goalie Jordan Akins
forced both to leave the game.
Then, in a span of a minute, the Yellow
Jackets were awarded a penalty kick that
Chris Johnson scored on and Adel Odeh
deflected a ball into the net off a save by
backup goalie Daniel Walsh. Suddenly, it
was 4-0 Leesburg, and the Jackets tacked
on another goal later by Parker Brown to


conclude the scoring.
"Stabs," CHS coach Trevor Tyler'
said. "They're quick, they're very quick.
Their two midfielders 16 (Brown) and 9
(Remone Forrester) are just exception-
al with the ball on their foot. You stab,
and they're going around you. And
they've got a couple of guys up top who
hold the ball very well."
Forrester played a part in both of
Leesburg's two first half goals. On the
first, he was the beneficiary of a fine
run into the penalty box by Custer,


who drew three CHS defenders with
him. When Forrester came open at the
edge of the penalty box, Custer dished
it back to him for an easy goal.
Forrester returned the favor at the
7:10 mark, when he made a run into
the penalty area and laid the ball off to
Chance Chadwick for the goal.
Columbia had a few excellent
chances to score. Nic Nyssen ripped a
free kick just inches wide of the net in
CHS continued on 2B


Lady Tigers outlift



Fort White, 59-28


Columbia High
adds home meet
on Wednesday.
By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com

Girls from Columbia High
and Fort White High clashed
over iron in a weightlifting
match on Friday. The Lady
Tigers defended their home
turf, 59-28.
"I was impressed with the
intensity and enthusiasm of
the girls," CHS head coach
Mitch Shoup said. "Fort
White did an outstanding job.
Their numbers are not quite
as high as ours, but they have
some outstanding lifters."
Columbia's Kori Drake won
the 154-pound weight class
with a 100 bench press and
135 clean-and-jerk for a
235 total. "I haven't done
135 in a meet, so I was happy
to get that," Drake said.
Teammate Chelsea Blair
(90 bench-105 clean-and-jerk-
195 total) placed second in the
weight class and Fort White's
Jennifer Crosby (70-65-135)
was third.
Oja Rollins led an impres-
sive CHS duo in the unlimited
class with 195-135-330. Alisa
Ring was second-with 135-170-
305, with her clean-and-jerk a'
personal best and a probable
school record.
"It went fine," Rollins said.


"I did better than expected.
I'm a little ahead of where I
want to be."
Columbia was also 1-2 in
the 183-pound class. Jolene
Hill won with 125-135-260 and
Marvisha Smith was second
with 105-85-190. Lavelle
Edwards (85-95-180) of Fort
White was third.
Manisha Carter won the
199-pound class over Fort
White's Amanda Means. The
girls had identical 100-100-200
totals, but Carter weighed in
lighter.
Michele Maxson (105-115-
220) and Jessica Bullock
(95-115-210) were first and
second, respectively for
Columbia in the 139-pound
class. Alexi Hodson (100-100-
200) was third for Fort White.
In the 110-pound class,
Columbia's Ashley Stalnaker
(90-85-175) and Jennifer Kon-
drach (80-80-160) were 1-2.
Fort White's Ashley Gonzalez
(65-70-135) was third.
Columbia Jamie Williams
(75-85-160) won the
119-pound class and team-
mate Kristina Carmichael
(65-70-135) was third. Fort
White's Marie Sealey (70-65-
135) was second.
Christa Strickland (95-95-

for Fort White. Columbia's

Bush looks to bring the


Heisman back to runners


Heisman Trophy
presentation will
be tonight.
By RALPH D. RUSSO
Associated Press
NEW YORK - From John
Cappelletti to Mike Rozier,
running backs once walked
off with 11 consecutive
Heisman Trophies.
Recently, though, quarter-
backs have been too tough to
pass up. The last five Heisman
winners have been QBs.
Reggie Bush is a good bet
to snap that streak tonight
and become the 41st ball car-
rier to tuck away college foot-
ball's most prestigious indi-
vidual award since Chicago
halfback Jay Berwanger won
the first in 1935.
USC's untouchable tail-
back is the favorite after cap-
ping a brilliant junior season
with two breathtaking per-
formances and an outrageous
average of 8.9 yards a carry.
'That's crazy. That's ludi-
crous," said Tony Dorsett,
the 1976 Heisman winner
from Pittsburgh. "It is just
unheard of. Reggie's a game-
breaker, a big-game player.


That's all you need to say."
Guess where Dorsett's
vote is going?
Bush will be joined by
Texas quarterback Vince
Young and USC quarterback
Matt Leinart in midtown
Manhattan
when the
Heisman isnner, became a
handed out
for the 71st
time.
The three
finalistsB
have been Bush
the favorite 3,450 yards even before touche
season a started.
Leinart, last year's
Heisman winner, became a
contender to repeat as soon
as he decided to bypass the
chance for NFL millions and
return for his senior season.
The left-hander has thrown
for 3,450 yards and 27 touch-
downs this season, improvingart
to 37-1 as a starter for thellot.
top-ranked Trojans.
If .Leinart wins the
Heisman, he'll join Archie
Griffin as the only players to
win the award twice. The
Ohio State running back did
it in 1974 and '75.
As a past winner, Leinart
gets to cast a ballot.


"Reggie's got my vote,"
Leinart said after Bush ran for
260 yards and two touchdowns
in the Trojans' 66-19 victory
over UCLA that wrapped up a
perfect regular season.
If Bush wins the award, he
and Leinart will become the
third set of teammates to win
the award in consecutive
years.
The last were Army's
famous Mr. Inside and Mr.
Outside, Doc Blanchard and
Glenn Davis, in 1945-46.
And the two USC stars
could become the first
Heisman winners to play
together in a college game
when USC (12-0) meets No. 2
Texas (12-0) in the Rose Bowl
for the national title on Jan. 4.
Or if Young wins, the
national title game will be a
matchup of Heisman winners
for the second straight year
- and the second time ever.
Last season after Leinart
won the award, USC played
Oklahoma and 2004 Heisman
winner Jason White in the
Orange Bowl, marking the
first Heisman showdown in
college football.
Young would be Texas'
third Heisman winner. The
first two were running backs.

DEAR ABBY


Breast cancer can strike

men as well as women


DEAR ABBY: Won't you
please make your readers
aware of male breast cancer?
Men never have their breasts
checked or check them
themselves.
My husband was finally
diagnosed after five months of
"dilly-dallying." He had a
mastectomy and is now on
medication prescribed for
women because so little is
researched for men.
'"They" say that 4 percent of
breast cancer patients are
male. I say it's probably more
like 15 percent. Please inform
your readers.
CHARLOTIE IN
NORTHBROOK, ILL.
DEAR CHARLOTTE: I'm
pleased your husband's
cancer was caught in time.
After reading your letter, I con-
tacted the American Cancer
Society. It estimates that before
2005 is over, 1,690 new cases of
invasive breast cancer will be
diagnosed among men in the
United States. That's
compared to 211,240 cases in
women, and less than
1 percent. Of course, if YOUR
husband is in that fractional
percent, it is one case too
many!
I was also told that there are
"too few men with breast
cancer for doctors to study in
clinical trials" - which is prob-
ably why your husband is
receiving the same kind of
treatment that women do.
Aq with anvnthoprrnnoipr fhp

sooner it's caught the
better. And that is why men
should routinely check them-
selves for lumps that could
signify breast cancer.
DEAR ABBY: My sister is
due to give birth any minute.
We are all very excited. My
brother-in-law, "Lyle," started a
"pool" where he works, choos-
ing the date of birth and weight
of the baby. It's $20 to get in the
pool. When I gave Lyle my
$20 last night, I said, "I hope I
win. I could really use a new
refrigerator." He replied, "No.
Everyone else is either giving
us all or half the money, and
that's the rule."
This may seem petty, Abby,
but I really need a new refrig-
erator. Of course, if I won
I would give them SOME
money, but to have my brother-
in-law demand it seems rude
and selfish. Am I wrong? If
I win, Lyle will be upset and I
don't want any rifts during this
wonderful time. But it seems to
me that he's actually collecting
money because my sister is
having a baby. I'll abide by your
decision. Am I being selfish? -
NEEDS A FRIDGE IN ST.


PETE
DEAR NEEDS: I don't
think you are being selfish -
but you may be bucking a
regional custom. Although I
have never heard of collecting
money for a baby pool and the
winner being expected to
donate the pot to the parents,
one of my staffers has.
Putting that aside, however,
if you win the baby-guessing
game, in the interests of family
harmony you should probably
give them the money. The
"donation" would be small
potatoes compared to how
costly the hard feelings would
be.
DEAR ABBY: I am a single
mom trying to make the right
decision. I have been dating
"Pete" off and on for nearly
three years. He is now saying
he wants us to move in with
him and be a family - but he
doesn't want to get married
until his daughter gets out of
college. I don't feel he's really
ready to commit. Do you
agree? - SUSPICIOUS IN
SAN MARCOS
DEAR SUSPICIOUS: I do
agree. In four years, you could
find yourself hearing, "Wait til
she's out of graduate school,"
or "Let's wait until she's
married." If after three years
he's not ready to move for-
ward, you should move on -
not in.

COLLECTING
By Larry Cox


PITTSBURGH GLASS
Q: I have a tumbler that was made with Pittsburgh Glass. I
have been told that it is quite early. I love the tumbler and
want to learn more about this type of glass. - Susan,
Naperville, Ill.
A: According to the 20th edition of Schroeder's Antiques
Price Guide, window glass and hollow ware were being pro-
duced in the Pittsburgh area as early as 1797. Coal was used
instead of wood to fire the large glass furnaces. At one time,
more than 150 glass companies flourished in the region.
During the Victorian era, dozens of free-blown, pattern-mold-
ed and flint glass were produced. I suspect your tumbler was
probably made sometime during the late 19th to early 20th
centuries. One of my favorite reference books is Glass A-Z by
David Shotwell (KP Books, $24.95).

Q: I have a "Skipper" Wyer-Swiss pocket watch from the
1950s. I have been offered $250 for it and wonder if I should
sell it. - Steve, Jackson, Miss.
A: According to 100 Years of Vintage Watches by Dean Judy,
your watch, in a chrome case, is valued $75-$150. My advice is
to take the money and run.

Q: I love to gather arrowheads on our family farm in
Oklahoma. Can you recommend a good reference book for
me? - Clay, Roland, Okla.
A: The Official Overstreet Indian Arrowheads: Identification
and Price Guide by Robert M. Overstreet, now in its seventh
edition, features more than 8,000 actual-size photographs,
many in full-color. There is a guide on how to buy authentic
relics, tips on grading and thousands of new illustrations of
points, both common and scarce. It can be purchased at most
larger bookstores or through Gemstone Publishing, Inc. and
its toll-free telephone number: 1-888-375-9800.

Q: Is there a club for Occupied Japan items? - Betty, Little
Rock, Ark.


.EB3RAT. fY S E Y A


A: Florence Archambault is president of the Occupied Japan
Club, Inc., 29 Freeborn St., Newport, RI 02840. The club pub-
'lishes a newsletter, Upside Down World of an OJ Collector.
One of the better reference books about OJ items is Occupied
Japan Collectibles: Identification and Price Guide, by Gene
Florence (Collector Books, $24.95).

It was December 23. Christmas looked bleak to me-a single
mom trying to get through college while raising two children. I
looked around, realization spreading over me like a slow, twist-
ing pain. We were poor.
Our tiny house contained two bedrooms so small that my
daughter's crib barely fit into one, and my son's twin bed and dress-
er filled the other. I made my bed every night on the living room
floor. We felt snug, only a few feet from each other-day and night.
We all experienced a sense of security and closeness that we would
not have known in other circumstances.
The snow fell softly, silently. At a quarter to eleven, I wrapped
myself in a blanket and sat down by the window to watch the pow-
dery flakes flutter in the moonlight. Suddenly my front door vibrat-
ed under a pounding fist.
Alarmed, I wondered who would visit me so late at night. I cau-
tiously opened the door and found several strangers grinning from
ear to ear, their arms laden with boxes and bags.
Confused but finding their joy contagious, I grinned back.
"Are you Susan?" The man stepped forward, pushing a box at me.
Nodding stupidly, unable to find my voice, I was sure they thought
I was mentally deficient.
"These are for you."A woman thrust another box at me with a
beaming smile. The porch light reflecting on the falling snow cast a
glow on her dark hair, lending her an angelic appearance.
I looked down into her box, which overflowed with treats, a fat
turkey, and all the makings of a traditional Christmas dinner. My eyes
filled with tears.
I finally found my voice and invited them in. Following the hus-
band, two children staggered under the weight of their boxes. The
family introduced themselves and told me they brought these pack-
ages for my children and me. This wonderful family, total strangers
to me, somehow knew exactly what we needed: wrapped gifts for
each of us, a full buffet, and many extras I could never afford.
Visions of a beautiful, normal Christmas literally danced in my
head. Somehow my secret wish for Christmas had materialized
right in front of me. Someone heard the desperate prayers of a
mother and had sent His angels my way.


O N D E C. 1 4, 1 9 4 7, the National Association for Stock
Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) is founded in Daytona Beach, Fla. It
was the first formal organization for stock-car racing, a sport said
to have begun with souped-up bootlegger hot rods during
Prohibition.

O N D E C. 1 3, 1 9 5 7, the last two-seater T-bird is produced.
Through 1957, Ford's Thunderbirds were jaunty, two-seat sports
cars that boasted removable hard tops and powerful V-8 engines.

ON DEC. 1 7, 1 9 6 3, the U.S. Congress passes the Clean Air
Act, a sweeping set of laws designed to protect the environment
from air pollution. It was the first legislation to place pollution
controls on the automobile industry.


My mysterious angels handed me a white envelope, gave me
another round of grins, and hugged me. They wished me a Merry
Christmas and disappeared into the night as quickly as they had
appeared.
Amazed and deeply touched, I looked around me at the boxes
and gifts strewn at my feet and felt the ache of depression trans-
formed into childlike joy. As I sobbed tears of deepest gratitude, a
sense of peace filled me as God's love enveloped me like a warm
quilt. Heart-filled, I dropped to my knees amid the boxes and
offered a prayer of thanks.
Rising, I wrapped the blanket around me and sat down at the
window again. Then I remembered the envelope. Ripping it open, I
gasped. A cascade of bills flutttered to the floor. Gathering them up,
I began to count the fives, tens, and twenties. My vision blurred
with tears as I counted and recounted. Sobbing again, I said aloud,
"One hundred dollars."
In addition to showering me with gifts, my angels had under-
stood how desperately I needed money. They couldn't have known
it, but I had received a disconnect notice from the gas company. I
simply didn't have the money to pay and feared my family would be
without heat for Christmas. The envelope of cash would provide
warmth and a tree. We had all we needed and more.
I looked at my children, sleeping soundly, and through my tears I1
smiled my first carefree smile in months. My smile turned to a grin
as I thought about tomorrow-Christmas Eve. One visit from com-
plete strangers had magically changed a painful day into a special
one we would always remember.
Several years have passed since our Christmas angels visited. In
that time I remarried, and my little family has been richly blessed.
Each year we choose a family less fortunate than we and bring them
carefully selected gifts, food, treats, and as much money as we can
spare-our way of passing on the gift given to us. We hope that
some day the families we share with will also pass it on.
Wherever my angels are, I thank you. And so do many other
families. God bless you and all the other Christmas angels out there.

Susan Farr Fahncke writes from Kaysville, Utah.

Huddleston Resource fair scheduled for PCS workers From staff reports A job resource fair has been scheduled for Potash Corp.-White Springs work ers who were laid off from their jobs last week. The resource fair, which was set-up by PCS and North Florida Workforce Development Board, will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Dec. 20 at the PCS conference center on PCS grounds. They want to make sure their employees are taken care of and get the resources they need dur ing this time, said Diane Head, North Florida Workforce Board deputy director. We will have resources from training providers like Taylor Technical Institute, Florida Gateway College and others. The resource fair will provide the laid-off work ers with information about the re-employment assistance program, oth erwise known as unem ployment. PCS laid off 250 workers last week and announced 100 other workers would be laid off by the second half of 2014. Head said the resource fair would also feature resources like represen tatives from the Early Learning Coalition, as well as representatives to discuss the Affordable Care Act and insurance options. We have some VA resources, and we give priority of services to vet erans, Head said. Some local employers representing local indus try may also attend the resource fair. We havent confirmed individual employers yet, but several have called us and are interested in recruiting during the fair, Head said. Of the people laid off, a majority of them were concentrated in the Columbia County area, as well as Suwannee and By STEVEN RICHMOND srichmond@lakecityreporter.com Members of the North Florida Broadband Authority met in Lake City Wednesday to discuss minor administrative tasks as Affiniti positions itself to take the reigns of the fledgling broad band service provider. Board members heard a report from Affiniti CEO Darol Lain on the various housekeep ing procedures underway as the Austin-based broadband and communication company pre pared to become the legal custo dian of the roughly $30 million of federal assets under the NFBA umbrella. The two companies entered an agreement in October follow ing an unsuccessful beginning to the federal program designed to bring broadband Internet to underserved rural communities. Board members attributed the lack of success to misinforma tion and bad publicity. The face that we projected out in the public mightve been the reason a couple of the coun ties dropped out, said board member and White Springs Vice Mayor Walter McKenzie. We just didnt have somebody out there that was informative and thorough and put on a good public face. Lain said he was interested in using the boards existing com munity relationships and con nections for courting clients in the future, joking that he didnt want to be seen as a Yankee carpetbagger. Our plan right now is still in the early stages of scouring these markets and getting to know everybody, Lain said after the meeting. Were focusing first on expanding anchor institu tions the NFBA was connecting to, like schools, hospitals and government entities. Affiniti and the NFBA will effectively operate as wholesale broadband providers and con nectors, providing public and private parties with broadband Internet access while also sell ing bandwidth to other internet service providers. According to Lain, Affiniti expects to invest somewhere between $3 to $5 million on Affiniti prepares to take over NFBA JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Overcoming fear to help others Columbia High School junior Kelsie Knudsen, 16, laughs at a joke after LifeSouth mobile team leader Danielle Graham sticks her while donating blood at the school on Wednesday.

But where, and why, did the trend start? Bill Cosbys character Cliff Huxtable was an icon of ugly sweaters in the s sitcom. The s saw them fade away, but in 2001 sweaters re-surfaced and holiday par ties snowballed from there. Now the tops are big ger than ever, but in a very hipstery, oh-so-ironic way.

In protest of a Nativity scene at the Florida Capitol, Chaz Stevens has put up a Festivus pole with beer cans around it. Sound ridiculous? Stevens agrees, but he did drive about 450 miles from the Fort Lauderdale area just to put up the pole. “What’s the point? There is no point. It’s ridiculous. This is the most ridiculous thing I could come up with,” said Stevens, an athe-ist. “This is about the sepa-ration of church and state.” Because Florida considers the Statehouse rotunda to be a public forum, peo-ple can use the space to express themselves or pro-test, as long as they first apply with a state agency. Along with the Nativity scene and six-foot Festivus pole, the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation has put up a banner advocating for the separation of government and religion. A Festivus pole is also on display at the Wisconsin Capitol, along with other displays. “Festivus for the rest of us” is a non-secular holiday made up by the television show “Seinfeld.” Frank Costanza made up Festivus after becoming fed up with the commer-cialism of Christmas. At the Florida Capitol last week, several dozen people gathered for the Nativity celebration, including a children’s choir. The only people there for the Festivus pole installation were media and Pam Olsen, who orga-nized the Nativity scene.Audubon Florida objects to training PENSACOLA — Audubon Florida is objecting to plans for military training at two state parks in the Panhandle. The environmental group says aircraft, motorized vehicles and electronic equipment will disrupt wildlife and vegeta-tion within the Blackwater River State Forest and the Tate’s Hell State Forest. Audubon Florida says it is especially concerned about the endangered Red-cockaded Woodpecker, which lives in the region. The Air Force did not immediately respond to questions about the protest letter released Wednesday by Audubon.Top of enrollment in marketplace FORT LAUDERDALE — More Floridians are signing up for the new federal health insurance program than residents in any other state, with nearly 18,000 registering over the last two months. According to figures released Wednesday, near-ly 14,500 Floridians signed up under the Affordable Care Act in November. That compares to about 11,000 in Texas. Florida’s November enrollment figures are considerably higher than the 3,500 in October when sign-ups were dwarfed by technical glitches with healthcare.gov. But it’s still far less than what officials originally had projected. Enrollment statistics from the Health and Human Services Department show that 364,682 people nation-wide have signed up for private coverage as of Nov. 30. That figure is less than one-third of the 1.2 million people officials had origi-nally projected would enroll nationwide by the end of November.USDA: Smaller citrus crop WINTER HAVEN — The smallest orange crop in 24 years will get smaller as pre-harvest fruit drop continues to plague groves. USDA on Tuesday shaved 4 million orange boxes — or 3 percent — off the projected harvest. Mandela ceremony interpreter a ‘fake’ JOHANNESBURG T he sign-language interpreter on stage at Nelson Mandela’s glob-ally broadcast memorial service was a faker who was just waving his arms around meaninglessly, advocates for the deaf said Wednesday. The unidentified man seen around the world on television next to lead-ers including United States President Barack Obama “was moving his hands around but there was no meaning in what he used his hands for,” Bruno Druchen, the federation’s national director, told The Associated Press. The allegation was yet another example of bad organization at the historic memorial service Tuesday, which was marred by public trans-portation breakdowns that hindered mourners from getting to the soccer stadium venue. In addition a faulty audio system made the remarks of world leaders inaudible for many. Police also failed to search the first wave of crowds who rushed inside the stadium after authorities opened the gates just after dawn. Four sign language experts, including Druchen, said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages and could not have been signing in any other known sign language because there was no struc-ture to his arm and hand movements. South African sign language covers all of the country’s 11 official languag-es, according to the federation.Police: Player slain because of clothes YPSILANTI, Mich. — Police say an Eastern Michigan University foot-ball player killed during a possible robbery may have been targeted because he had on expensive-look-ing clothing. The Ann Arbor News reports the detail is in transcripts from a hearing in the case that it reviewed. Preliminary examinations for 20-year-old Ed J. Thomas and 19-year-old Kristopher K. Pratt are scheduled for Jan. 17. They face murder charges in the fatal shooting of Demarius Reed. The wide receiver’s roommate discovered his body at the bottom of a stairwell at an off-campus apartment complex on Oct. 18. Police say Reed’s wallet and cellphone were taken. Reed was a 20-year-old communications major from Chicago. The school announced plans Tuesday to hire a total of 10 new full-time police officers by September 2014 to boost off-campus patrols.Ukraine protesters reject govt offer of talks KIEV, Ukraine — Opposition protesters in Ukraine have rejected President Viktor Yanukovych’s offer of talks, saying they will not sit down with him until he fires his government and releases all arrested demonstrators. The opposition appeared to be in a stronger position after the abrupt withdrawal of riot police early Wednesday from parts of Ukraine’s capital. This has raised hopes that weeks of demonstrations have erod-ed police support for Yanukovych and his government. Arseniy Yatsenyuk, leader of the largest opposition party in parliament, calls the police withdrawal “a great victory.” Yanukovych issued an invitation late Wednesday to political, religious and civil figures to join a national dia-logue. But it was unclear if the move was merely an attempt to buy time and mollify Western officials who are pressuring him to reduce tensions.

The figure excludes nongraduates, such as students who were held behind or obtained GEDs, as well as students who dropped out altogether. The 65.7 percent graduation showed a fifth consecu-tive year of improvement since the 2008-09 school year, when Columbia County had a 56.6 percent graduation rate, according to FDOE’s report. “I’m certainly glad they continue to improve in a positive direction,” Columbia County Superintendent Terry Huddleston said. “It’s just a testament to the hard work of all of our teachers.” However, Huddleston, who’s been superintendent for a little over a year, said graduation was not the school board’s sole focus. He attrib-uted the higher graduation rates to a combination of dual enrollment and vocational pro-grams offered by the county, as well as summer programs that focus on bringing lagging students up to speed and on track to graduate. “It’s not just about graduating, it’s about helping stu-dents become collegeand career-ready and to leave high school with industry certifica-tions,” Huddleston said. “It’s all about taking classroom applications and putting them into professions so students make those connections.” Huddleston said he hoped to focus on raising student enroll-ment in advanced placement and dual enrollment courses, as well as “bridge” programs for students transition between the elementary, middle and high school levels. Hamilton counties, Head said. “I hope people come in ready to ask questions and ready to talk to empl oyers, if they want help getting a resume together, t hey should go to local career centers.” For additional information contact Diane Head at 850-973-1805 or headd@nfwdb.org Employers interested in recruiting should also contact Head, who is the lead organizer for the event. upgrading and maintaining the broadband infrastruc-ture set up by NFBA over the past few years. “Lake City is right at the heart of where we think there’s a great opportunity,” he said. “We’d love to find local versions instead of transporting companies out of the northeast,” adding that he was eager to get the word out and hear from local companies. Lain said he expects the closeout to be finished by February and that local communities would begin to feel the Affiniti’s impact by next spring.

Maeweather also faces charges of possession of less than 20 grams of mar-ijuana and a glass crack pipe, a CCSPO report said. Carlisle and Williams allegedly offered to engage in sex for $30. Maeweather allegedly sought $30 and a pack of cigarettes. Coleman allegedly offered to perform a sex act for $5. Williams was arrested at 2:35 p.m. at 389 NW Quinten Street; Coleman at 7:27 p.m. on NW Main Boulevard; Maeweather at 8:20 p.m. on West Duval Sttreet; Carlisle at 8:43 p.m. at 240 SW Commerce Drive. All four were taken into custody by CCSO and booked into the Columbia County Detention Center. They remained in custody at press time Wednesday. Carlisle Coleman Williams Maeweather Gov. Scott wants to cut auto registration fees By GARY FINEOUTAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE — In a move that could help in a tough re-election fight, Florida Gov. Rick Scott wants to roll back the fees that motorists pay to register their cars. During a Thursday appearance in Tampa, Scott will wheel out a proposal to cut auto reg-istration fees by $401 million next year. The governor’s office estimates the cut — which would kick in on Sept. 1, 2014 — would result in a decrease of more than $25 for most motor-ists. The Republican-controlled Florida Legislature increased auto fees in 2009 as part of an overall package of tax and fee hikes to help balance the state budget. Then-Gov. Charlie Crist — who was a Republican at the time— signed the fee hike into law. Crist is now running against Scott as a Democrat. Scott had already said he wants to cut $500 million in taxes and fees next year. But this is the first time he has spelled out which taxes and fees he would target to cut. In a white paper describing the proposal, the Scott adminis-tration contends that a projected budget surplus for next year should be used to undo the auto registra-tion fee hike. Florida economists last week con-cluded that the state’s main tax collections would grow by 3.8 percent over the current fiscal year and another 4.9 percent by the middle of 2015, bringing the total to $27.5 billion. This means that Scott and state leg-islators next spring could have a budget surplus in excess of $1 billion even after pay-ing for enrollment growth for schools and programs such as Medicaid. When Scott first announced his plan to cut taxes and fees he held a series of public meetings with business owners and resi-dents to discuss potential areas for cuts. That created a push by groups and business interest to propose cuts in everything from business taxes on electricity to sales taxes on com-mercial leases. The governor has sought tax cuts every year he has been in office, but his initial efforts encountered stiff resistance from his fellow Republicans in the Legislature. Shortly after he was inaugu-rated in 2011, Scott sought tax and fee cuts of $4 billion over a two-year period. Some Democrats criticized Scott’s push for tax and fee cuts as a gimmick. They have said that Scott and the Legislature should use the extra money to increase funding for schools and universities. So far GOP legislative leaders have come out in favor of cutting taxes next year, but they have been cautious about endorsing any set amount. A legislative proposal to cut the auto registration fee is already moving in the Florida Senate, but the cut is not quite as large as the governor is recommending. The bill (SB 156) would cut the average auto registration fees by $12 a year and would cost the state an estimated $233 million. Auto registration fees can vary wide-ly depending on the type of vehicle. But Sen. Joe Negron, RStuart and sponsor of the leg-islation, said he welcomes the governor’s support to cut the fees. Negron pushed a similar bill earlier this year but it died in the Florida House because it relied on ending existing tax breaks to cover the costs. “The size and the scope of the rollback will be deter-mined during the session,” said Negron, who is also the Senate budget chief. “But the reduc-tion will be substantial. Our constituents will feel it.” ‘The size and the scope of the rollback will be determined during the session...but the reduction will be substantial. Our constituents will feel it.’ — Sen. Joe Negron (R-Stuart), Senate budget chief Scott 3A

Baxley Staying close – even when you’re not Voting study biased A fter reading the head-line in Tuesday’s edi-tion of the Lake City Reporter regarding voting statistics in Columbia County, I feel compelled to respond. The first sentence sheds light on the perspective of the study. The report was produced by the Center for American Progress, which is a “progressive” left wing educational and research institute, and is very closely aligned with the current White House administration. Their purpose is to promote Democrats’ ideas and candidates. Let’s just say they are not an unbiased source for information. The first statistic offered stated that in Columbia County, only 53.5 percent of those eligible to vote par-ticipated in the 2012 general elec-tion. That sounds like an extremely low number and that fact may be correct. However, nationwide the eligible voter participation in 2012 was only 59 percent. But what needs to be emphasized is that figure includes citizens who are eli-gible to vote, but have not made an effort to register. The fact is that 76.6 percent of registered voters in Columbia County did indeed vote, compared to a statewide average of 72 percent. If eligible citizens don’t register to vote, who does that reflect poorly upon? Further into the report, more statistics are given that begin to shed light on the agenda of the report’s authors. The voter regis-tration numbers compared to the voting age population as recorded in the last census indicates that 69.6 percent of Columbia County citizens are actually registered to vote. When broken down by race, as “progressives” so love to do, the numbers are even worse. Just 57.9 percent of blacks and 48.3 percent of Hispanics actually bothered to register. One question that is unan-swered in the report is, Do these numbers reflect citizens counted in the census who are ineligible to vote? I also find it curious that the authors fail to provide a breakdown of white voter participation. Could it be that those figures are of no interest to them? According to their figures, 1.98 percent of all absentee ballots were rejected compared to a statewide average of 0.96 percent. According to Department of Elections guide-lines, any ballot without a properly signed oath or with a signature that does not match the signature on file must be rejected. That is done in order to protect the integrity of an election. I would be concerned if improper ballots were not rejected. There is an implication that the problem is lies with the Supervisor of Elections in Columbia County. But my question is, does our elections office reject ballots that should be counted, or is it possible other counties count ballots that should be rejected because they lack all of the required elements established by the Department of Elections? The conclusion of the study states that “residents of Columbia County face multiple barriers when it comes to access to voting.” In addition, it states that “restric-tive state laws make it harder for Floridians to vote and poor election administration is disenfranchising the people of Florida.” All of their statistics remind me of a quote. “Facts are stubborn things, but statistics are much more pliable.” Well, the fact is that if you want to vote, you can vote. If you need to register, then you can register. If you need to update your registration, you can do that as well. The Supervisor of Elections office has two locations and is open five days a week, 52 weeks a year. Voting is a right. But it is also a responsibility. Good citizens exer-cise both. The vast majority of those in attendance at the recent town hall meeting on a pro-posed Union monument and its location at the Olustee battlefield weren’t from anywhere around here. Many were from Central Florida with at least one from as far away as North Carolina. While we would prefer more local input on this important matter, it’s a free country, and folks from across the land have the right to express their views, especially on something so momentous as the Civil War and how it’s commemorated, here or elsewhere, on public lands. But when state Rep. Dennis Baxley of Ocala joined the fray, showing up out of the blue and tell-ing folks he wanted to change the rules so that he and fellow lawmakers could have a say on the issue, we had to wonder what was up. Baxley says the proposed Union monument is of concern to him due to his Southern heritage and because it is a state park, after all, however distant from his home down in Marion County. There may be a little more to it than that. Baxley recently announced he’s setting up a run for state Sen. Charlie Dean’s District 5 seat once the incumbent is term-limited out in 2016. What better way to ingratiate himself with local folks – and possible future supporters – than step in and help defuse a controversy that seems to be growing hotter with each passing week. We’re not sure we want Baxley’s help.First, changing the law so that the state Legislature, as opposed to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, gets to decide when and where new monuments are placed in state parks just isn’t a good idea. Our lawmakers have plenty to keep them busy as it is. We’d rather they focus on bringing in jobs, improving our schools and preserving our freshwa-ter springs, among other things. Second, and more importantly, we’ve got a state lawmaker right here who’s already on the case – and has been for nearly a year. Our own Elizabeth Porter, who has been at work on this issue since February – and who actually represents both Baker and Columbia counties in the Legislature – will meet sometime over the next few weeks with DEP Secretary Herschel Vinyard, a man who, with a stroke of his pen, can decide the fate – and location – of this proposed monument once and for all. Porter has also reached out to U.S. Rep Ted Yoho and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio to see whether the pro-posed Union monument might better be placed on federal land, rather than the three-acre state plot that is home to the existing monuments. Porter said Friday she hopes for “a thoughtful, reasonable compromise.” We feel confident she can achieve just that.Provided interlopers like Rep. Baxley stay out of the way.W hen you are little and the world seems so big, it’s hard to understand why someone you love is here one day and gone the next. Actually, that can be hard to understand at any age. I’ve been trying to make sense of it all my life and I still don’t get it. Or like it. But I’ve come to accept it as one of the harder facts of life. Randy doesn’t accept it a bit. He is 3 years old and smart enough to notice that his nana -that would be me -shows up at his door unan-nounced, only to disappear later like the UPS guy dropping off a package. Yes, there are differences. The UPS guy wears a crisp brown uni-form. I dress mostly in rumpled black. And he never sticks around to play with Randy, even for a minute. I always stay at least a few days, long enough to make Nana pan-cakes (they’re the best) and read stories (about Curious George) and trick his parents into letting him stay up late. The UPS guy never does that.But sooner or later, I always drive away, not in a big brown van, but in a little rental car. And I’m gone for a very long time. A month. Or two. Or three. Then I get messages on my voice mail: “Nana, can you go to the park with me today?” How do you keep saying no when all you want to say is yes? Randy lives in California, with his parents and his brother, Wiley, who is almost a year old. Wiley doesn’t care how long I’m gone. I can’t prove it, but I think he likes the UPS guy better. The reason for my vanishing act is simple, but not easily explained, especially to a child. My husband and I live 500 miles from our children and our grandchil-dren, in the desert overlooking Las Vegas, with an interesting array of wildlife and all sorts of things to do. Like many of our neighbors, we didn’t plan on the job change that brought us here. But after a few years of trying to make the best of it, we’ve been surprised to find how much we like it. The only thing we don’t like is the 500 miles between us and the people we love. I was almost Randy’s age when my parents divorced. I lived with my mother and will never forget how I missed my dad. But when I visited my dad, I’d miss my mother, too. My grandmother helped me come to terms with it. “When someone loves you,” she said, “you don’t have to be in the same room to know you are loved. Love stays forever, even when they’re out of sight.” I remembered those words years later when I lost in slow succession my grandparents, my parents and my first husband. I want my grandchildren to feel the same way about me. So I am teaching it to them, starting with Randy. The last day I was with him, I held his face in my hands and said, “Where is your nana when you can’t see her?” He studied my eyes, waiting for me to tell him. So I did. I told him and I showed him, then I made him show and tell me. “Will you remember?” I said.He nodded and smiled.Then I left. Again. The next day his mama emailed to tell me this story. That morning Randy came out to the kitchen to ask, “Mama, where is Nana?” “She’s gone home, honey,” she said, “with Papa Mark.” “No, Mama,” he said, grinning and pointing to his chest. “Nana is right here in my heart.” Take that, UPS guy.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & ST A TE THURSDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2013 7A Irrigating turf with reuse water From staff reports LIVE OAK The Suwannee Country Club in Live Oak will soon maintain its turf without relying on groundwater. Rather than pump ing water from the Upper Floridan Aquifer they will be irrigate with reuse water. Reuse water is an alter native water source produced from highly treated wastewater and used for irrigation and other non-potable uses. The golf course will receive 100,000 gallons per day (GPD) of reuse water from the City of Live Oaks Waste Water Treatment Plant, offsetting their groundwater irriga tion use by 100 percent. The Suwannee River Water Management District provided the City of Live Oak $19,570 in funding assistance to pay for the infrastruc ture to connect the golf course to the citys reuse system. The City was awarded the funding as part of the Districts Regional Initiative Valuing Environmental Resources (RIVER) program. Construction is scheduled for completion by February 2014. Suwannee Country Club Manager and Superintendent Jason Cannon has eagerly awaited the opportunity to use reuse water since the City installed its reuse system several years ago. Were excited for the opportu nity to irrigate in a manner that will reduce costs, conserve water, and provide beneficial nutrients to our turf which will reduce fertilizer use, he said. Other customers receiving reuse water include Camp Weed, which uses up to 450,000 GPD for aquifer recharge and Suwannee Correctional Institute which uses up to 200,000 GPD for irrigation and other nonpotable uses. The District is also using reuse water for landscape irri gation on an as-needed basis, offset ting 100 percent of their groundwa ter use. Its a smarter use of our end prod uct, said Live Oak City Administrator Kerry Waldron. It also allows users the ability to use treated effluent for irrigation and related purposes rather than pulling from our fresh drinking water supply. The District has assisted several cities in its 15-county boundary with planning and funding assistance to produce reuse water. Cities within the District that have reuse programs include Alachua, Archer, Cedar Key, Lake City, Live Oak, Monticello, and Perry. Collectively, this offsets pumpage by about 4.1 million gal lons of groundwater per day. The District is pleased to partner with the City of Live Oak on this project which will reduce groundwa ter pumpage, and we are delighted that Suwannee Country Club want ed to be a part of these efforts, said District Executive Director Ann Shortelle. Reclaiming water allows us to save our precious groundwa ter supplies, while making beneficial use of high-quality wastewater. We will continue to use this important resource to help meet the Districts future water supply needs.

DEAR ABBY: As the education director of the East Bay Bicycle Coalition, I work hard to encourage safe and courteous cycling for everyday transportation in Northern California. There are a number of points I would like to address to “Caring Reader, Sacramento, Calif.” (Sept. 13). “Caring” described seeing bicyclists run stop signs, not wear protective gear, texting/talking on cellphones, and suggested a greater enforcement of the law. Rolling through stop signs is, indeed, just as illegal as it is while driv-ing a vehicle, except in Idaho where cyclists may treat stop signs as yields. I encourage all cyclists and drivers to come to a complete stop at signs and signals, even when turning right, and especially when pedestrians are present. Talking or texting on a cellphone while biking isn’t currently illegal in the state of California. I feel that using cellphones while biking is an unsafe practice, and I encourage cyclists (or drivers) to sim-ply pull over before mak-ing or taking a call. Helmets are required gear only for bicyclists under the age of 18 in California. As an adult, I choose to wear one when I’m biking. However, it is not illegal for an adult to bike without a helmet. You said in your response that people who cycle at night should avoid wearing dark clothes to increase their visibility, but clothes color alone has been shown to have little or no effect on visibility in dark conditions. During low-light times of day like dawn or dusk, wear-ing bright or fluorescent clothes is a good strategy, but at night bicyclists should rely on lights and reflectors to be seen. The law in California stipulates that bicyclists must have a white headlight, a red rear reflector and yellow or white reflectors on their wheels or spokes as well as on their pedals, shoes or ankles. However, I also recommend adding to these required items: a red rear light, and additional lights and reflectors at the front, rear and sides of the bike, or on one’s clothing or helmet. Highlighting one’s silhouette with lights and reflectors, and apply-ing them to moving parts of one’s bike or body, will increase visibility substan-tially after dark. Abby, thanks for your attention to these issues. — ROBERT PRINZ, OAKLAND, CALIF. DEAR MR. PRINZ: You’re welcome. And thank you for kindly shar-ing your expertise with my readers. DEAR ABBY: Last year, my 40-year-old stepson, “Rod,” gave his father a beautiful robe for Christmas. The problem is, we had given the robe to Rod for Christmas sev-eral years ago. I didn’t say anything at the time, but, of course, I recognized it because I was the one who had bought it for him. Should I have said anything? Or was I right to have played dumb (which is what I did)? Rod has “saved” other presents we have given him and regifted them to us years later. This man has a high-paying job and isn’t hurting for money. I think what he’s doing is insulting. I have suggested not exchanging gifts, but he ignores me. What can I do about this in the future? — “RECYCLEE” DEAR “RECYCLEE”: Rod may have forgotten that he got the robe from you. As I see it, you have two choices. You can be offend-ed, or you can turn it into a joke. For this Christmas, give him the robe back. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Stay alert and be ready to make last-min-ute changes if necessary. Good fortune will be yours if you are astute, articulate and on top of your game. Keep your spending low and your intake high. Follow your head, not your heart. +++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Get started early and don’t stop until you have completed every-thing on your work list. A chance to look for some-thing that will boost your confidence or update your look will bring about a wel-come surprise. Love is in the stars. +++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Go where the action is and welcome any challenge that comes your way. Your persistence and bravado will help you con-nect with people who can change your future. The signal you send should be accurate and intentional. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t leave work unfinished. Consistency will help secure your position. Now is not the time to slow down, but instead is the moment of truth as to what you have and are willing to offer. Romance will lead to an enchanting evening. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t give in or give up. Spend what you can afford, nothing more. Take a break from people pres-suring you or asking for too much. Good friends and a little entertainment will help turn a demanding day into an eventful evening. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get out and about. You will find great bar-gains if you shop and inter-esting information if you research or take part in industry events. Romance is on the rise. Socializing with people who share commonalities will lead to good times. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Travel plans or engaging in social events will give you a chance to interact with people from unique backgrounds. Avoid a feud by staying out of a debate that develops between peers or friends. Physical activity will bring about positive changes. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Fix up your place. Comfort and practi-cality will make you feel at home and encourage you to entertain more. Your relationship with friends, relatives and neighbors will improve if you offer hospitality and cheer. Love is on the rise. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Make a quick decision and a fast move. Idle time will be what leads to trouble. Figure out your strategy and don’t waste time pur-suing your goal. A change at home or work appears to be beneficial. Talks will be successful. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Good times are in order. Hospitality will show your heart is in the right place. Don’t feel you have to make a change because of what others do. Be true to yourself and you will not be lead astray. Protect what’s yours. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Don’t let money slip through your fingers. Impulse purchases will lead to the poorhouse. Concentrate on ways you can put your talents and skills to better use and earn more in return. Set up a budget and stick to it. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Act on instinct and judge others by how consistent and reliable they are. You can expand your plans and explore new endeavors, but you are best not to get involved in a joint venture. Don’t mix business with pleasure. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Columbia came away with a 1-2 record over the weekend. Lincoln and Chiles high schools both netted wins over Columbia, but the Lady Tigers were able to defeat Maclay. The girls played very well this past weekend, Columbia head coach Lindsay McCardle said. We played Lincoln Friday night and lost 4-1. Krysten Giebeig got the goal in the second half off a break away. It was a nicely placed ball to the corner, beauti ful goal. The girls worked hard, but fell short. In the first game on Saturday the Lady Tigers played Maclay and came away with a 2-1 win. The girls came out hard and definitely wanted the win, McCardle said. It wasnt until the second half that Krysten played a ball to Natalia Pardo, and Natalia found the net to put us up 1-0. Several minutes later, Delanie Redmond found the back of the net to put us up 2-0. Maclay was able to score a goal in the last 10 minutes of the game. I was beyond thrilled to get a hard fought win. Columbia ended the tour nament with a district loss against Chiles. Considering we had played two games prior to that and they had not, I will say they were at an advantage, McCardle said. Chiles mercy ruled us the last time we played them, so to finish the game only going down 3 goals, Id say is progress. I am beyond proud of my soc cer team and the dedication and sweat they are giving every day at practice and in games. Donielle Harrington had over 40 saves during the tournament. Harrington was named the MVP in two of the Lady Tigers three games. She had some amaz ing saves, McCardle said. Im very proud of her. Brittney Lee who played strong in the back, she was consistently on point each game. I even moved her to a forward position to get more speed up top. She played well in both positions, sweeper and for ward. The Lady Tigers travel to Oak Hall School at 6 p.m. tonight for their last game before Chirstmas. Columbia soccer Columbia High fell 5-0 at Gainesville High on Tuesday. The Tigers play host to Taylor County High at 7 p.m. tonight in Lake City. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Fort White High striker Mallory Sealey moves the ball around Columbia Highs Brittney Lee during a game on Oct. 28. Split results for Lady Tigers Jags want to resign Jones-Drew By MARK LONG AP Sports Writer JACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Jaguars want running back Maurice Jones-Drew back next sea son. Jones-Drew is doing all he can to make it happen. Hes sharing carries, playing through injuries and complaining about nothing. Hes all in, fully committed to whats hap pening in Jacksonville under coach Gus Bradley, general manager Dave Caldwell and owner Shad Khan. I want to be here, Jones-Drew said. Its a fun environment. Its different than Ive ever been a part of. It works. It takes time to build anything. Its starting to turn around for us, and were starting to play well. Thats exciting. It also might keep JonesDrew from testing the freeagent market. Jones-Drew has three games remaining on a fiveyear, $31 million contract he signed in 2009.
