Meth becoming more popular


Drug acts as a
central nervous
system stimulant.

By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.com
Methamphetamine has
become a common drug in
recent years; however, when
asked the question, many are
unable to describe what
"meth" is.
Methamphetamine is a cen-
tral nervous system stimulant
and; serves as a powerful
"upper," similar to cocaine.


The biggest problem with
meth is that it is something
that can be easily made. Over-
the-counter drugs such as cold
and asthma medications that
contain ephedrine or pseu-
doephedrine can be used as
one of the main ingredients of
the drug.
Combine that with an
assortment of drain cleaner,
battery acid, antifreeze, ether,
and brake fluid and meth
making is easy.
'.'Basically, you run the
ingredients through a
chemical process, changing

Kids slide down the snow hill at last year's Snow Day hosted
in downtown Lake City.

Rain may delay

fourth Snow Day


Annual event
may get pushed
to NewYear's Eve.
By LINDSAY DOWNEY
Idowney@lakecityreporter. corn
Lake City residents may
have to wait a little longer
this year to build snow-
men.
The city's fourth annual
Snow Day is scheduled for
noon-6 p.m., Saturday in
the downtown square, but
inclement weather may
have children waiting until
New Year's Eve to break
out their mittens and
scarves for the event.
The Downtown Action
Corporation and local
sponsors will spend about
$4,000 to bring 40 tons of
snow from Gainesville Ice
to downtown Lake City.
The Downtown Action
Corporation is closely


monitoring the rain fore-
cast for Saturday and will
decide by Friday whether
or not to reschedule the
event, Downtown Action
Corporation vice chair-
man Harvey Campbell
said.
"Rain and snow just
don't mix," Campbell said.
"You would end up wash-
ing $4,000 worth of snow
down the gutter."
However, Campbell still
had hope the snow would
go on as planned.
"It looks a little better
on today's monitor than it
did yesterday," Campbell
said of Saturday's fore-
cast.
On Tuesday, the
National Weather Service
Web site predicted a 40
percent chance of rain for
Saturday.
If rain seems apparent,

'Kong' role worth screaming about '


NEW YORK - Naomi Watts knew
the role of Ann Darrow in "King
Kong" was one that demanded a
strong set of pipes.
Watts, who stars as Darrow in Peter
Jackson's big-budget remake of the
1933 classic, says her character's
screams are part of movie lore just as
much as the big, plane-swatting ape.
"It's funny, the whole scream thing,
because you don't really scream in
real life," Watts told The Associated


Press in a recent interview.


Dean museum
to close its doors
GAS CITY, Ind. -A
museum chronicling the
short life of "Rebel Without a
Cause" star James Dean will
close Dec. 31.
Owner David Loehr moved
the James Dean Gallery to Gas
City from Fairmount, where
Dean attended high school,
less than two years ago.
Although attendance had
increased, it wasn't enough to
match the cost of maintaining
the temperature-controlled
building, Loehr said Monday.
"The operating expenses


"If there's truly anything scary, then
you would almost swallow it. And if
there's a mouse nearby, you'd squeal:
'Aaiiee!'
"Where does a scream come from?
It's really movies, I think."
The 37-year-old actress said she
didn't practice her screams for "King
Kong," but did get some prior work in
"'The Ring" and its sequel.
Her screen credits also include
roles in "Mulholland Dr." and "21
Grams."


and upkeep and payments are
just more than we can
handle," he said. "I'm just
getting further into debt and I
just can't do it anymore."
Dean, who was born in
Marion in 1931, was killed in
a car crash in Cholame, Calif.,
in 1955 at age 24. He also had
roles in "East of Eden" and
"Giant."
Loehr opened the museum
and gift shop in 1988 in a
house near downtown
Fairmount. After an electrical
fire in early 2004, Loehr
moved the gallery to the new
7,200-square-foot building
near Interstate 69.

Retention could
be eliminated
TALLAHASSEE - State
Education Commissioner
John Winn wants to end the
retention of high school
students now held back for
getting low marks or failing-to
earn enough credits to
advance to the next grade.
Winn said Tuesday that his
proposal to the state's High
School Reform Task Force
does not constitute "social
promotion." He asked the
panel in Orlando on Monday
to consider sending his
recommendation to the
Florida Legislature.
More high school freshmen
were kept back - 38,000, or
nearly 17 percent - in Florida
last year than students at any
other grade level from
kindergarten through
12th grade, Winn noted.
"We are basically sending a
message to these students
that they have failed before
they even had a chance to get
started and there is little to no
hope of them graduating on
time," Winn said.
Winn's proposal comes
11 months after the Florida
Board of Education asked


11

TILL
( 9 tznaw


lawmakers to end "social
promotion" at all grade levels.
The Legislature so far has
declined to do that, leaving
only third-graders facing a
state retention requirement if
they fail to meet reading
standards.

Palm Beach to
examine proposal
WEST PALM BEACH -
Palm Beach County
commissioners agreed
Tuesday to consider a
proposal by the California-
based Scripps Research
Institute to build its
biotechnology park at two
sites, after legal action over
environmental concerns that
halted construction at the
original location.
The commissioners
directed their staff to
research for 60 days the
proposal to put Scripps' three
main buildings on about
40 acres at Florida Atlantic
University's Jupiter campus.
Meanwhile, about 1.6 million
square feet of laboratories
and other research facilities
would be housed at Florida
Research Park on Beeline
Highway. The two sites are

12 miles apart.
The commissioners asked
Scripps officials to explain
their plan in writing their plan
and how a split campus
would work, the Palm Beach
Post reported.
The Scripps Institute is the
keystone of a proposed
biotechnology park supported
by Gov.,Jeb Bush as a way to
diversify Florida's economy.
The state and Palm Beach
County have contributed
- more than $510 million
combined for the project.
The decision will delay a
formal vote until next year on
whether the biotech project
will be moved from the
1,920-acre Mecca Farms site,
although the commissioners
agreed to proceed with plans
to obtain an Army Corps of
Engineers permit for the
Mecca Farms site.

Doctors to remove
facial growth
MIAMI - As the
tumor-like mass spread across
Marie Casseus' face,
neighbors in the girl's
Port-au-Prince neighborhood
shunned her and called her an
animal, but the teen's parents
refused to give up hope that
one day they would find a
doctor willing to treat her.
Their wish w as granted
Tuesday, as doctors at Holtz
Children's Hospital in Miami
prepared to perform a,
groundbreaking operation to
remove the 16-pound growth
that has engulfed the face of
the once beautiful girl.
"I had no hope in Haiti,"
Marlie's mother Maleine
Antoine told doctors through
a translator in a press
conference at the-hospital.
"I don't know how to thank
you for this. Since arriving at
,the airport, the reception we
have had. I feel thrilled."
The operation is the first of
many Marlie must undergo.
The teen suffers from a rare
form of Polyostotic Fibrous
Dysplasia.

The 17-year-old Columbia
High School student recently
received a nomination to the
U.S. Air Force Academy from
U.S. Rep. Ander Crenshaw,
(R-FLa).
If accepted, Houle will
attend college for four years
at the academy in Colorado
Springs, Colo., taking classes
and learning to fly. After grad-
uation, he would spend a min-
imum of five years in the Air
Force repaying the country
for his free education.
"We're real proud of him
and we're excited," Jesse's
mother, Cathy Houle said.
"He has wanted to be a pilot


since he was little."
Houle said his fascination
with flying began when he
saw movies like 'Top Gun" as
a child. When he was in the
sixth grade, his family took a
vacation to Colorado and
stopped to look at the Air
Force Academy because he
already had aspirations to go
there for college.
"Jesse is just like me," his
father, David Houle, said.
"When I was 17, I was also
nominated for the Air Force
Academy. I just wanted to be a
pilot, too."
Although a minor health
concern kept David Houle
from the academy, he is
optimistic about his son's
chances of being accepted.
As part of the second round


of the application process,
Houle will be ranked on
physical fitness, academics,
test scores, interviews and
extracurricular activities.
"They take the people with
the top points and go down
until they run out of spots.
I think it will be competitive,"
Jesse said, adding that if he
isn't accepted, he has several
other colleges in mind,
including Embry-Riddle
Aeronautical University at
Daytona Beach and the
Florida Institute. of
Technology at Melbourne.
But for now, the Houle
family is basking in the
excitement of Jesse's
achievement.
"It's a huge honor," David
Houle said. "Just being

OPINION

EDITOR RIAL


Consider the

possibilities of

consolidation

The non-action displayed
recently by the city and the
county in regard to a fire
protection agreement is
another example of what
isn't happening at some critical levels in
Columbia County.
We're talking about forward
progress. In many areas, we're sitting
still.
The city and the county agree on
very little. Attend any of the joint
city-county committees and this is
evident. There's some tolerance, but a
lot of tension between the two groups
exists in the open.
And, there's a lot at stake - mainly
quality of life and safety issues for all of
the county's approximately
63,000 residents.
The two groups need to take a close
look at consolidation of government.
If consolidation were present, there
might be a unified effort to solve the
nagging problems of water-quality
issues, wastewater treatment and
disposal concerns, law enforcement
coverage, fire protection issues and
recreation issues.
When these joint committees
convene, there's always talk of
cooperation and a unified effort, but
seldom do the results confirm what
either group proclaims by word of
mouth.
Consolidation wouldn't repair every
problem. But it would combine and
centralize government, improving the
current situation that requires
consensus from two very different
governing bodies that sometimes seem
headed in separate directions.
It's a fresh idea and a big step, but
one that needs to be carefully
considered in Lake City and Columbia
County.

Hogwash. It's more like the

difficulty comes when more
than two teams make a case for
deserving a shot at the

Auburn last year, which went

no such thing. When the
Constitution was written, he
was residing in Braudel's
homeland, France.
I don't say all this to absolve

Firefighters

show bravery

in the line of fire


firefighters and emergency
personnel in Lake City and
Columbia County. Busy, but
not necessarily in the way
these brave men and women crave. Some
would call it hectic and harrowing.
Whatever the label, all of them took it in
stride and showed the best of Columbia
County during the numerous calls that lit up
dispatch radios during the day.
When the fire alarm sounded for a motel
fire at the Fort White exit on 1-75 and State
Road 47, it
was around
9:30 a.m., and a
cool, sunny

enforcement
officers, twilson@Iakecityreporter.com
firefighters and ambulance personnel all
arrived quickly on the scene to discover what
turned out to be a very hot fire caused by a
meth-lab explosion - one of the new dangers
now facing firefighters more frequently across
the country.
Meth fires deliver both a super-hot inferno
of combustible chemicals and also emit toxic
fumes that will irritate the noses of anyone
within hundreds of feet of the scene. At a
motel, this could be a serious combination.
Turns out, the fire was quickly contained to
one room and hotel guests were evacuated
quickly while the scene was being secured.
During the course of the morning and into the
afternoon, emergency officials at the scene
watched the wind closely and with each shift
of the breeze, they moved the crowd of
onlookers to a safe distance from the fumes.
The scene had it all, including an airlift of
the victim from the scene and other drama
that included an investigation by the State
Fire Marshal's office and a cleanup effort by a
hazardous materials team.'
It was a busy day in the south end of the
county.
Then, a fire call around noon at the
Department of Juvenile Justice on East Duval
Street in Lake City also sent a different group -
of firefighters to this scene.
What transpired was minor. An overheated
"exhaust fan caught fire, fell from the ceiling to
the floor and smoked up the rear of the
building.
Thankfully, no one was injured in this
scene, but the employees were safely
evacuated from the building.
Two firetrucks and the water tank unit all
responded to the scene, as did several officers
from the Lake City Police Department, who
made sure everything transpired safely and
the scene was under control.
The purpose of pointing out these two
critical scenes on Tuesday is to note that
demanding fire calls of this nature occur
every day somewhere in our county and men
and women stop what they are doing and
answer the bell.
The city and the county may not be able to
agree and sign a cooperative fire service
agreement, but that is of no consequence to
the brave firefighters we have in our
presence. Thank goodness they don't wait on
a paper mandate from government officials to
tackle the daily grind of putting out fires and
keeping people safe - all the. while risking
their own lives and putting their own careers
on hold.
I'm giving praise to the full-time firefighters
and the volunteer firefighters.
The way our current system of fire
protection is designed, we can't function
safely without both.
These two groups have their turf battles,
but when the fire is raging, there's really no
gripes between them. Everybody is on the
same team.
Throughout the day Tuesday, the
firefighters of the Lake City/Columbia County
Fire Department, as well as many of the
volunteers from several stations, were
stretched thin. There was even an early
evening call of a gas leak at a Lake City
apartment complex that was quickly solved,
but still saw several units and many
firefighters on the scene, as well as law
enforcement personnel.
Many went home tired last night, but they
did so with the pride in knowing they helped
make a difference in the daily lives of many of
the rest of us.
Keep this in mind when red lights flash and
sirens blare and all they ask is for us to pull
over so they can move down the street

Retail sales, inventories post increases


By MARTIN CRUTSINGER
AP Economics Writer
WASHINGTON - Retail
sales posted a moderate
increase in November, helped
by a big rebound in auto sales
and continued strong demand
at building supply centers as
the victims of the Gulf Coast
hurricanes repair their homes.
The Commerce Department
reported Tuesday that retail
sales were up 0,3 percent in
November, slightly below the
0.4 percent gain that analysts
had been forecasting. The
strength last month came from
a 2.6 percent rebound in auto
sales, which had fallen for
three consecutive months after
surging in July.
Analysts said the November
sales performance provided
support for retailers' hopes that
a rebound in job growth and
falling gasoline prices will put
shoppers in a buying mood in
the closing weeks of the
holiday season.
'"The retail sales numberwas
encouraging," said Mark
Zandi, chief economist at
Moody's Economy.com.
"Christmas sales are shaping
up to be OK."
In a second report, the
Commerce Department said
that American businesses
increased their. inventories by'
0.3 percent in October, follow-
ing a gain of 0.5 percent in
September. That gain was
slightly below the 0.5 percent
rise in inventories that
economists had expected.
Analysts are looking for
strong rebuilding of stockpiles
to help lift overall economic
growth in the October-
December quarter. The
0.3 percent rise in total invento-
ries was led by a .0.6 percent
jump in stockpiles held by man-
ufacturers and smaller invento-
ry gains of 0.2 percent by
wholesalers and 0.1 percent at
retailers.
The 0.3 percent.increase in
retail sales in November fol-
lowed a 0.3 percent gain in
October, which was revised
upward from an initial estimate
that sales had fallen by
0.1 percent in October.
The strength last month
came from the 2.6 percent

jump in auto sales, an advance
which followed declines of
11.7 percent in August, 3.4 per-
cent in September and 1.3 per-
cent in October. Auto dealers
were hurt by a drop in demand
after attractive summer dis-
counts were halted. Sales of
gas-guzzlers also slumped
after gasoline prices spiked
above $3 per gallon in early
September.
Excluding autos, retail sales
would have been down 0.3 per-
cent, the biggest drop in
19 months.
However, much of that weak-
ness reflected a good develop-
ment for consumers - falling
gasoline prices. Sales at gaso-
line stations dropped
5.9 percent in November, the
biggest one-month decline in
2'2 years. Retail sales figures
are not adjusted to take
account of changes in the price
of items sold.
Excluding the decline in
gasoline sales, retail sales
would have posted a 1 percent
rise in November, the best
showing since a 1.4 percent
increase last July.

specialty clothing stores
edged up a slight 0.2 percent
last month after a huge
2.6 percent gain in October.
The nation's biggest retail-
ers reported a mixed start to
the all-important holiday sales
season in the days after
Thanksgiving. Consumers
were willing to spend but only
if they found bargains.


However, retailers are hope-
ful that the sales season will
finish strongly as consumers
get a lift from continued
declines in gasoline prices and
further increases in jobs.
Sales at building supply cen-
ters jumped 1.9 percent
November following increases
of 1.8 percent in October and
1.9 percent in September.

Explosion rocks N.J. apart


building; several injuries i
F- -. . : . . ., I By WAYNE PARRY


:-~


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Flames shoot through the roof of an apartment complex as
firefighters move an aerial ladder while working to control a fire in
Bergenfield, N.J., on Tuesday.


Associated Press
BERGENFIELD, N.J. -
Construction workers hit a gas
line Tuesday and touched off
an explosion that tore through
a three-story apartment build-
ing, causing at least part of it to
collapse, authorities said.
Five people were injured in
the blast, which sent up
plumes of smoke that could
been seen up to 10 miles away.
Police initially said six people
were injured, but later revised
the number.
Several residents of the
24-unit building said an elderly
woman screamed for help
because her husband was
trapped inside the apartment
closest to the blast. Authorities
said they could not confirm
whether a person was missing.
"I wanted to go in and look
for him but there was no way,"
said David Coradin, 54, who
was taking a shower in his

workers who were trying to

College class president charged in bank robbery


By MARK SCOLFORO
Associated Press
BETHLEHEM, Pa. - As
Lehigh University students
prepared for final exams this
week, they found themselves
grappling with the news that
the sophomore class presi-
dent had been arrested for
allegedly, robbing a bank.
"I didn't believe it when I
first heard it," Kathryn
Susman, an 18-year-old fresh-
man engineering student
from Hereford, Md., said
Monday.
The robbery occurred
Friday afternoon. Authorities
said Greg Hogan, 19, handed
a note to a teller at a Wachovia
Bank branch, saying he.had a
gun and wanted money.
Hogan, the son of a Baptist
minister, was picked up at his
fraternity house later that
evening and charged with
robbery, theft by unlawful tak-
ing and receiving stolen


"You have to think of how much he
had going for him - class president,
studying at Lehigh."

- Steve A. Juisti
sophomore civil engineering student.


property.
Police said he got away
with $2,871.'
One of his frat brothers,
Patrick Thornton, described
Hogan as "very energetic,"
the sort of student who would
cheer on the college football
team wearing body paint.
"It's by far the most inter-
esting story we've ever
encountered here," added
Thorntoni, editor The Br-owii
and White, the student
newspaper.
The university's student
Senate president, Kip Wallen,
drove Hogan to the bank, but
had no idea that Hogan
allegedly intended to rob it,


said Wallen's lawyer, Karl
Longenbach. Wallen has not
been charged.
"I believe once all the facts
are reviewed and uncovered,
the conclusion will be
reached that he (Wallen) had
in fact nothing to do with the
crimes with which the other
individual is charged,"
Longenbach said.
Police told The Morning
Call of Allentown that Hogan
admitted robbing the bank.
He was released Saturday
after posting $100,000 bond, a
prison spokesman said. A pre-
liminary hearing was
scheduled for Jan. 31.
Hogan did not immediately


return a telephone message
left Monday by The
Associated Press on his
cellular telephone voicemail.
Hogan graduated in 2004
from the University School, a
private school in the upscale
Cleveland suburb of Hunting
Valley. His father, the
Rev. Gregory J. Hogan, is the
pastor of First Baptist Church
of Barberton in Barberton,
Ohio, and has served as a city
councilman in Seven Hills,
Ohio.
Hogan also was a former
fraternity rush chairman and
a cellist in the university's
orchestra.
"You have to think of how
much he had going for him -
class president, studying at
Lehigh," said Steve A: Juisti,
19, a sophomore civil engi-
neering student from Upper
Darby. "You have to question
his reasoning, obviously. The
big question is why."

Tech for seniors moving

beyond The Clapper


By RANDOLPH E. SCHMID
AP Science Writer
WASHINGTON - One day,
people with Alzheimer's dis-
ease could have telephones
that show-them a picture of the
caller and remind them who it
is and when they last talked.
They might walk across a
floor with sensors that check
their gait and sound an alarm if
they fall. Others might relax on
a bed that monitors their pulse
and breathing.
New technologies for sen-
iors, supplementing conven-
iences like The Clapper and
emergency warnings like Life
Alert, are on display this week
at the White House
Conference on Aging.
The goal is to provide tech-
nologies that "help seniors and
their families live happy and
healthy in their own home,"
said Eric Dishman, chairman
of the Center for Aging
Services Technologies, or
CAST, and general manager
and global director of Intel
Health Research and
Innovation Group.
'Technology already has


transformed our lives from
e-mail to MP3s and from
online shopping to cell phones.
Now, it's time for technology to
transform the experience of
aging," said Russell Bodoff,
executive director of CAST.
His organization, which put
together the technology exhi-
bition, brings together
400 businesses, groups, uni-
versities and others working to
find new ways to improve life
for older people.
There are four main focus
areas for the new innovations,
Dishman said: disease preven-
tion, early detection, caregiver
support and maintaining
independence.
Take Intel's phone for those
with early and developing
cases of memory-wasting
Alzheimer's.
A screen like that of a com-
puter monitor sits next to the
phone. No more embarrassing
pauses while the person get-
ting the call tries to remember
who Christine is. Using caller
ID technology, the screen can
provide a photo of the caller,
tell who they are and when
they last talked.


Navy helicopter goes down

off the coast of Colombia


Associated Press
WASHINGTON - A Navy
helicopter crashed Tuesday
off the coast of Colombia and
the fate of its crew was
unknown, Navy officials said
Tuesday.
Cmdr. David Werner, a
Navy spokesman who
described the incident, said a
search and rescue effort was
under way.
Another Navy spokesman,
Lt. John Schofield, said the
helicopter was an SH-60B,


which normally operates with
a crew of three but can have
as many as five. He said it was
not yet clear how many were
aboard the aircraft. He said it
went down under unknown
circumstances in internation-
al waters west of Colombia.
Colombian officials initially
said they had no information
about the incident. Adm.
Guillermo Barrera, opera-
tions chief for the Colombian
navy, said there were no
reports of a crash in
Colombian waters.

Squirt, a loggerhead turtle, swims in a tank at the Museum of

Efforts to free entangled

right whale suspended


Associated Press
MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. -
A team of marine experts halt-
ed efforts Tuesday to free an
endangered North Atlantic
right whale from a tangle of
fishing gear after losing track
of the animal off the North
Carolina coast.
A line connecting the team's
telemnetry buoy to the whale
broke at 4 p.m. Monday, and
the whale disappeared soon
after, said )Barb Zoodsma, a
marine mammal biologist from
the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
Fisheries Service. Without a
radio signal to locate the whale,
experts are hoping for an
"opportunistic sighting" from
an aerial survey or fishermen.
Zoodsma said the team
thought the whale had been
entangled for a couple of weeks
to a couple of months. Without
further aid, she said, the ropes
will constrict the 35-foot whale
as it grows to its adult length of
up to 50 feet.
'The body wrap around this
animal is already really tight, in






T. . ;
i. A."-' &^ t t


some places it's starting to dig
into the animal's flesh," she
said.
The disentanglement team
managed to attach a buoy and
sea anchor to the entangled
fishing gear that is trailing
behind the whale, which
slowed the animal and allowed
rescuers to approach .in an
inflatable boat. Zoodsma said
the team was then able to
remove 45 feet' of line
entangling the whale and an
additional 60 feet of line trailing
behind.
The team also took biopsy
samples of the whale using a
special hollow-point arrow
fired from a crossbow. The
samples will be used to
determine the whale's sex.
The sea anchor and buoys
later broke free when the
whale dived, Zoodsma said.
Only about 300 Atlantic right
whales, whose spawning and
nursing grounds are just off
the North Carolina coast, are
known to be alive. The animals
were hunted almost to
extinction in the early 1900s.


Katrina refugees say it's no


time to party for Mardi Gras
By CAIN BURDEAU routes and the French -
Associated Press Quarter. . .... .


NEW ORLEANS - Some
Hurricane Katrina refugees
stuck in hotel rooms and unfa-
miliar surroundings across the
United States are in no mood
to party, and they are decrying
the city's plans to hold a Mardi
Gras celebration in February.
"This is not the time for fun.
This is the time to put people's
lives back on track," said Lillie
Antoine, a 51-year-old refugee
stuck in Tulsa, Okla.
City officials announced last
month that New Orleans
would host an abbreviated
Mardi Gras celebration. Civic
boosters say the festivities can
help revitalize New Orleans'
economy, lift morale and show
the world that the city is on its
way back.
In addition to scaling the
two-week Carnival season to
eight days, the cash-strapped
city is seeking corporate spon-
sors for the first time to pay for
police overtime and the
cleanup along the parade


Some storm refugees and
black organizations say the
party preparations are insensi-
tive to the plight of so many
displaced New Orleanians.
"I just think it sends the
wrong message to have a
celebration when people are
not back in their houses," said
Ernest Johnson, the Louisiana
president of the National
Association for the
Advancement of Colored
People.
At a protest Monday of a few
Katrina refugees in Atlanta,
where the New Orleans Saints
were playing, ChiQuita Simms
said reconstruction should
take precedence over
partying.
"I'm not against Mardi
Gras," said Simms, who has
been living in an Atlanta hotel
with her 14-year-old son. "I'm
against their priorities." She
added: "What you can do is
guarantee me in two months
you're going have a Mardi

Gras, but you can't guarantee
life will be back on?"
Before Katrina struck,' the
2005 festivities were going to
be one of the most exuberant
parties in this party city's
history - the 150th anniver-
sary of Carnival parades in
New Orleans. Mardi Gras falls
on Feb. 28.
The dispute boiled Saturday
at a town hall meeting in


Atlanta when Mayor Ray
Nagin came under fire from an
angry and raucous crowd of
refugees for approving a
Mardi Gras. Nagin then told
the crowd that he had actually
been against celebrating
Mardi Gras but that tourism
leaders forced his hand.
His comments stunned
Carnival supporters back in
New Orleans.


Tampa Wal-Mart fires manager for detaining of

black customer who wrote questionable check


By MITCH STACY
Associated Press
TAMPA - A Wal-Mart man-
ager who called sheriff's
deputies to apprehend a black
businessman about a check he
found questionable was fired
for using "poor judgment," but
did not engage in racial profil-
ing, the retail chain said
Tuesday.
Wal-Mart said its investiga-
tion of the Nov. 23 incident at a
store in suburban Brandon
found manager Mark Cornett
violated company procedures
when he called the law on
Reginald Pitts, who presented
a $13,600 check to pay for
holiday gift cards for his
company's employees.
But Pitts, a 34-year-old


human resources manager for
GAF Materials Corp., suspects
he was singled out because he
is black, and he's considering a
lawsuit. The incident made
national news and generated
more bad publicity for the,
retail giant, which has drawn
criticism and been sued for
issues ranging from employee
relations to its aggressive
expansion into small
communities.
Sarah Clark, a spokes-
woman for the Bentonville,
Ark.-based company, said
Cornett followed proper proce-
dures in trying to verify Pitts'
check, which he could not
because a privacy block
prohibited access to GAF's
bank account.


Racial profiling was not
involved, Clark said, but
Cornett should have returned
the check to Pitts instead of
summoning deputies. He was
fired because of "poor
judgment and poor customer
service," she said, and compa-
ny officials have apologized to
Pitts several times.
"We think, quite frankly, that
the entire situation could have
been handled differently,"
Clark said. "It's just
unfortunate."
Another member of the
store's management staff also
will be disciplined, but Clark
would not discuss the details.
Pitts said that when he went
to the store to pick up the
already printed gift cards, store

managers stalled for about two
hours after he handed them
the check.
Later, two Hillsborough
County sheriff's deputies
appeared, with one grabbing
Pitts by the arm. He objected
to the rough handling and
asked if he was being arrested.
The deputy told him that the
store had called and reported
that he was trying to pass a
forged check.
Deputies determined a
short time later that there were
no grounds for a criminal
charge and that Wal-Mart
would not press the issue fur-
ther. There had never been a
problem previously when Pitts
had sent a white employee to
pick up the cards.

Review Committee fails to meet quorum for first time


By LINDA YOUNG
lyoung@lakecityreporter.com

The Columbia County
Charter Review Commission
met without a quorum and
without any members of the
public in the audience for its
last meeting of the year.
Charter Review Commission
Chairman Wayne Sapp noted
at the meeting Tuesday night
that this was the first time the
commission of 15 members
had failed to achieve a quorum,
which is nine members.
"I believe the reason there


isn't a quorum is because it's so
close to Christmas," Sapp said.
Although the lack of a quo-
rum meant the commission
could not conduct unfinished
or new business, it could listen
to the four guest speakers.
The guest speakers were
Lake City Mayor Stephen Witt,
Lake City City Manager Joe
Cone, Lake City Chief of Police
David Allbritton and Lake
City/Columbia County
Chamber of Commerce
Executive Director Jim Poole.
After each of the speakers
addressed the review


commission, the members
were able to ask questions.
One area of focus by the
commission was on what levels
of joint cooperation already
existed between the city and
county.
Witt told the commission the
city and county had a number
of agreements to do things
together that included fire
services and recreation.
"The fire right now is some-
what consolidated," Witt said,
pointing out that there was a
uniform assessment for county
and city property owners to


pay for fire services.
"Agreements with the sher-
iff's office are good," Allbritton
said. He cited the example of
an agreement for the city to
answer calls at two banks out-
side the city limits, since the
city has more banks than the
county does and has expertise
in handling potential armed
robbery calls or false alarms.
David Rountree, charter
review commission member,
asked Poole if a lack of waste-
water treatment in the county
was an obstacle to recruit new
business to the county. Poole


responded that "you might
reach a point where the city
ends up operating a regional
facility" since it has "the
expertise."
As a follow-up question,
commission member Karl
Burkhardt asked "Any expan-
sion to water and wastewater
would be funded by fees to the
users. How would the utility
tax figure in that or would it
not?"
Poole deferred the question
to Cone, who said the city had
a budget of approximately
$29 million dollars and, of that


budget, approximately
$1.9 million came from proper-
ty taxes and "we collected
$879,000 off the electric utility
franchise fee."
"So that's two-thirds of what
we collect in property taxes at
3.5 mills off of one utility and
that's an electric utility, it's a
franchise fee," Cone said. "I
think that's a revenue source."
"You can't keep saying well,
we don't want to pay any more
taxes ... and still take care of
the problems in the communi-
ty. It takes money to cover
things," Cone said.


DOT schedules construction open house


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

The Florida Department of
Transportation has spent more
than a year on its project to
widen State Road 47 to accom-
modate more traffic volume.
From 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
Thursday, FDOT has sched-
uled a construction open house
to discuss the project at the
Woodmen of the World build-
ing on State Road 47.
"We have used 414 days on
the project," said Gina
Busscher, DOT spokeswoman.


"We started in October 2004
and we have
380 days remaining on the con-
tract - roughly a year and
15 days."
She said the open house is
designed to provide informa-
tion about the project and
shouldn't last an extended
period of time.
"It's a drop by (open house)
at their convenience. Attendees
don't have to stay the entire
time," Busscher said. "They
can look at the plans, look at
how the traffic will be shifted,
get their questions answered


and then they can leave."
The latest phase of construc-
tion work on the project and
the next phases of the con-
struction plan will also be
reviewed during the open
house.
"We want to inform every-
one of the state of the con-
struction project, since it's
been at least a year since we
had our last open house and
we're getting ready for a major
traffic shift on the project,"
Busscher said. "We are going
to shift the traffic from the
existing lanes to the new


southbound lanes, but there
will still only be two lanes of
traffic open."
She said attendees will also
be briefed on the status of the
section of roadway which is
closed between U.S. 41 and
Bascom Norris Drive.
Completion of the project
has been scheduled for
January 2007.
"We are a little over 50 per-
cent complete with the project
- we are halfway there,"
Busscher said. "At this time the
contractor is 2 percent ahead of
schedule."


Class-size issue dims glowing report on state's debt status


By BILL KACZOR
Associated Press


TALLAHASSEE -
Anticipated , borrowing for
school construction to meet
new class-size limits dimmed
an otherwise glowing report
on the state's debt status that
Gov. Jeb Bush and the Florida
Cabinet received on Tuesday.
The report shows Florida
for the first time has achieved
a AAA credit rating ,from
Standard & Poor's, the compa-
ny's highest. Also, it notes the
state's benchmark debt ratio
- the percentage, of revenue
needed to make bond pay-
ments,- was down. The state
now spends $5.36 of every
S100 it collects t pay ts bond


debt compared to $6.12 two
years ago, reversing an
upward trend.
'This has been extraordi-
nary," state bond finance
director J. Ben Watkins III
said. "From a debt-manage-
ment perspective, this is as
good as it gets."
The debt ratio is expected
to remain below the state's
6 percent target limit for the
next 10 years, but only if no
bond sales are needed to build
schools or classrooms to meet
the class-size limits voters
approved through a constitu-
tional amendment in 2002.
1 The, ratio would exceed
6 percent, buit remain below
7 percent, from' 2008 to 2010


and possibly 2011, if class-size
bonds are sold. Estimates for
class-size borrowing needs
range from $1.8 billion to
$4.2 billion, not including
inflation.
Bush opposes the class-size
limits because he believes
they are too expensive but
later said the state has a duty
to implement the amendment
unless it is repealed. Some
legislative leaders are
working on repeal proposals.
"We're looking for an
indigenous product of the
Legislature that I can embrace
and support," Bush said.
In the meantime, the gover-
nor plans to send lawmakers a
school construction spending


plan to achieve the class-size
limits. He declined to say how
much he expects to recom-
mend except that it would be
"a sizable commitment."
The debt affordability study
noted Florida also received
high marks from two other
bond rating services - AA+
from Fitch Ratings and AA1
from Moody's, both just a step
below their highest ratings.
The high ratings mean
Florida can expect lower inter-
est rates when it does borrow.
Watkins attributed the bond
ratings and improved debt
ratio to increasing state rev-
enues, less borrowing .and
refinancing to take advapitage
of'lower interest rates. '

and felt he had to do what he
was told.
Columbia County Sheriff's
detectives served a search
warrant for Sheppard's home
on Monday and recovered
adult sex toys, pornographic
videos and a computer with
pornographic Web sites
saved.
In addition to the charges of
sexual battery on a child,
Sheppard also was charged
with lewd and lascivious acts
with a child and showing
harmful material to a minor.
At the time of the arrest,
Sheppard was employed by
the VA Hospital in Lake City.
"The VA is working closely
with us in our investigation


and I appreciate their coopera-
tion," said Columbia County
Sheriff Bill Gootee. "We
believe this is an isolated inci-
dent and did not overlap into
his workplace, but we will con-
tinue to investigate to be
sure."
He was being held in the
Columbia County Jail without
bond Tuesday.
"Our detectives worked
hard on this case and we are
extremely proud of the young
man who came forward," said
Columbia County Sheriff Bill
Gootee. "This is another hard
lesson learned that we must
all be very careful who we
entrust our children to."

the event likely will be
delayed two weeks - until
New Year's Eve - because
people usually are busy with
holiday plans on Christmas
Eve, Campbell said.
More than 3,000 people
usually stop by to play in the
winter wonderland each
year. Campbell said he does-
n't think holding the event
on, New Year's Eve will


affect turnout because stu-
dents still will be on winter
break and they always enjoy
the opportunity to see snow
in Florida.
"The majority of kids
don't have familiarity with
snow," Campbell said. "It's a
chance to give our kids kind
of a taste of the Christmas
season."

LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2005


S' METH: Drug is easily manufactured


traveling from Texas to
Miami," said Columbia
County Sheriff Bill Gootee.
He checked into the Super
8 Motel Monday evening.
"He purchased the ingredi-
ents for meth in Houston,
stopped in Lake City and
attempted to cook the meth
(Tuesday) morning," Gootee
said.
According to Gootee's
statement, only the room
Keith was staying in was dam-
aged. However, those staying
at the motel were forced
outside due to the dangerous
fumes.
'This is what can happen
when these very volatile
chemicals are mixed and
heated," Gootee said. "Every-
person out there who camera
into contact with the smoke
from this fire is considered


contaminated and needs to be
tested for chemical
exposure."
A woman, who Gootee said
had a history of heart prob-
lems, was staying in the room
under Keith's room when the
explosion took place. She was
taken to the Lake City
Medical Center for
precautionary measures.
Gootee said there were a
few elements that alerted the
firefighters to the possibility
of a meth lab.
"There was extremely hot
fire, something that is com-
monly seen in meth labs,"
Gootee said. "Drano was also
found, a common element in
making meth. We're still
gathering additional evidence
from th-e scene."
Gotee also said the hotel
room was severely damaged


and much of the contents
were destroyed. The amount
of ingredients used to cook
the meth was unknown
because of the fire.
It was also unknown if
Keith had any prior drug
charges, although Gootee
said there was an outstanding
warrant for his arrest for
DUI.
Keith will likely face
charges of manufacturing
meth, Gootee said. Keith
could face other charges
depending on his intentions
for cooking the meth.
"Our local firefighters did a
great job of getting in there,
determining what it was we
were dealing with, and get-,
ting everyone out of the
motel roomss" Gootee said.

the make-up of it and making
legal ingredients into an illegal
narcotic," said Lt. Bernie
Kleinschmidt, supervisor of
detectives for the Division of
State Fire Marshal Bureau of
Fire and Arson Investigations.
"It is a heating and drying
process, using an electric stove
or hot plate. You bring the liq-
uids to a boil and let them
evaporate."
However, Kleinschmidt said
the process is extremely
hazardous from start to finish.
'There are more than a few
possibilities for an explosion,"
Kleinschmidt said. "If a
container gets too hot and the
pressure builds, it could
explode. Also, you're dealing
with combustible solvents that
could easily start a fire."
Depending on the amount of
ingredients used and stage of
the process, Kleinschmidt said
a meth explosion could be no
different than a large fuel
explosion.
Kleinschmidt explained
there has been a recent
increase in meth production in
the state and across the United
States. Government agencies
are attempting to train employ-
ees about the dangers of meth.
"Many first responders are
being trained to do mitigation
of meth labs," Kleinschmidt
said. "A meth class actually just
began (Tuesday) in
Jacksonville. Meth awareness
needs to increase, because the
chemicals and compounds

involved can be very
dangerous."
Fumes from meth can be
dangerous, and meth can be
absorbed through the skin,
Kleinschmidt said. Personnel
from the Multi-Jurisdictional
Drug Task Force and
Hazardous Materials team
were wearing bio-hazard suits
when they entered the room
where a meth explosion took
place at the Super 8 Motel in
Lake City.
He also noted that firefight-
ers and other personnel must
be decontaminated before leav-
ing the scene, as meth can be
easily spread.
Columbia County Sheriff Bill
Gootee agreed something
needs to be done about meth
production.
"Meth is a problem," Gootee

Hill to return
against Knicks
ORLANDO - After
spending all season on the
bench with an abdominal
injury, All-Star forward
Grant Hill is expected to
play for the Orlando Magic
for the first time this
season today against the
New York Knicks.
Hill had surgery for a
sports
hernia




six
weeks. Hill
He started practicing
full-speed last week, but
was held out of Saturday's
win over Denver to allow
more practice time.
Orlando, struggling with
other injuries, has gone
8-11 without him, but is still
just two games back in the
Southeast.
"We'll go through
another transitional phase,
but it'll be worth it to get
guys back," coach Brian
Hill said. "Roles will
change, adjustments will be
made for the better."

Indians hoops stifle Dixie County


McFadden's all-around
effort leads Fort White to
a district victory.
By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter.comrn

FORT WHITE - For the second
straight game, the Fort White High
basketball team held an opponent
under 60 points..
The Indians went on a 31-14 run in
the second quarter to erase a
21-16 first-quarter deficit and defeat
district rival Dixie County High,
73-58 on Tuesday night.


The man in the middle of the Fort
White comeback was point guard
Owen McFadden, who played a solid
all-around game.
McFadden scored 15 of his game-
high 18 points in the first half, and he
pulled down several rebounds and in
one stretch made three consecutive
steals.
"I just played hard, played tough,
and we won," McFadden said.
The first quarter saw the Indians
and Bears in a track meet, as both
teams marched up and down the
court with little resistance.
Dixie ran a layup drill in the period,
finishing 10-17 from the field to take


the early lead.
Fort White coach Charles Moore
let the team know of his displeasure
with the defensive effort as soon as
the first quarter buzzer sounded.
"Coach just told us, 'Hey, we've got
to tighten up,' and that's what we
did," McFadden said.
That led to a 21-4 run to start the
second period, which culminated
with a Jeremy Harrell steal and dish
to a streaking McFadden for a layup
plus the foul. When McFadden hit
the free throw, Fort White was ahead
37-28, and the Bears would not

Tigers tame Rams again


Reynolds leads
with 15 to keep
CHS unbeaten.
By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com

It will be tougher for the
Rams to write this one off.
Columbia High's basketball
team defeated visiting
Eastside, 55-52, on Tuesday to
sweep the regular-season
series between the two
District 4-5A teams.
The Tigers won the first
matchup on Nov. 30, but the
word was Eastside's football
team had lost the Friday
before in the playoffs and the
two-sport guys were rusty.
The Rams (5-2, 4-2) even
showed up at No. 7 in the first
poll of the season.
'"The first game, they were
thinking it was a fluke," Byron
Shemwell said. "Now, they
know we are for real and are
making some noise. We ain't
playing."
Shemwell finished with
12 points and hit one 3-pointer
in the first quarter and anoth-
er in the third, when Eastside
made a move to get back in
the game.
The Rams closed the third
quarter on a 9-1 run to cut the
lead to four, 41-37, at the
buzzer. Columbia (7-0, 5-0)
also led by four points at the
end of the first quarter, then

Tim Tebow signs with Gators


Nease quarterback
chooses Florida
from five schools.
By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter. corn

Years from now, Florida
Gators fans will probably
remember exactly where they
were when they heard Nease
High quarterback Tim Tebow
announce he was headed to
Gainesville.
On Tuesday afternoon,
Tebow ended weeks of specu-
lation by announcing his
intentions to play for Urban
Meyer and the Gators in front
of many of his friends in high
school, as well as a nationally
televised audience on
ESPNNews and ESPNU.
Tebow had narrowed his
choices to Alabama, Southern
California, Michigan, LSU and
Florida after taking his required
visits to each of those schools.
With his parents flanking
him at a table at Nease, Tebow
made his announcement,
which was followed by thun-
derous applause from
classmates and friends.
Tebow, who passed for
3,442 yards and 34 TDs and
ran for 1,150 yards and 21 TDs
as a senior in guiding his team
to the Class 4A state title, said
he had only made his decision

.Nease quarterback Tim Tebow (center) announces Tuesday in
Ponte Vedra Beach that he will attend the University of Florida. His
mother and father, Pam and Robert, are seated beside him on the


stage of the Nease auditorium.

"in the last few hours" and
decided to go with Florida
based on "gut instinct."
After his announcement,
Tebow read from a handwrit-
ten note that thanked every-
one from his coaches and
teammates to the producers of
an upcoming one-hour docu-
mentary on him that will air
on ESPN2 at 10 p.m. tonight.
Tebow said of the Gators
coaches, "I just really like them
and respect them," and in his
note he referred to the fact his
family would be so close and
mentioned he grew up a Gators
fan as major reasons why he


decided to attend Florida.
Tebow is rated the 12th-best
high school recruit in the nation
by rivals.com, and he is the
No. 1-ranked dual threat at quar-
terback (running and passing).
When asked what his
biggest transition would be in
playing at Florida, Tebow said,
"Just trying to get used to the
offense, the schemes and
defenses you see in the SEC."
ESPN2's documentary is
called "Faces of Sports: Tim
Tebow," and it follows Tebow
from through his senior foot-
ball season and the recruiting
process.


fourth quarter.
Jakeem Hill put back a
rebound and Kenny Williams
scored four points down the
stretch to keep CHS in the
lead. With 13 seconds left,
Eastside trailed by two and set


up a 3-pointer and the win. Hill
rebounded the miss and
Cameron Reynolds closed the
scoring with a free throw.
Tavaris Reynolds had to
shoulder the point guard
duties, as Williams stayed in
foul trouble for much of the
game.
'Tavaris played 31 minutes
- all out," CHS head coach
Trey Hosford said. "He gave
everything. If he doesn't play
as good as he did on the point,
we lose the game. He played
his heart out."
Tim Shankle led both teams
in scoring with 21 points. He
scored eight in the fourth.
"Byron had a big 3 in the
third quarter," Hosford said. "I
was glad to, see him get some
good looks. He had a tough
assignment with Shankle, he
and Cameron both. We found
out why he is all-state."
"Shankle is a good player,
you can't doubt that,"
Shemwell said. "I knew he
was quicker than me and
faster than me, so I gave him a
little space and relied on get-
ting help. Sometimes it was
not there, but most of the time
we did a good job."
Hill scored eight points. He
blocked one dunk attempt and
pinned a layup against the
glass.
Cameron Reynolds,
Williams and Thomas each
scored six points and Vince
Folston had a basket.


Young, Bush lead

AP All-Americans


USC quarterback
Leinart is named
to second team.
By RALPH D. RUSSO
Associated Press

Vince Young can claim at
least one victory over
Southern California this
season.
The Texas quarterback
was selected to The
Associated Press
All-America team
released Tuesday,
relegating USC's
Matt Leinart to
second-team.
Young was run-
ner-up in the
Heisman Trophy young
voting to Trojans tailback
Reggie Bush and was one of
four Longhorns on the first
team. Bush was one of three
All-Americans from top-
ranked USC and a unani-
mous first-team selection.
The real test for No. 2
Texas comes Jan. 4 in the
Rose Bowl, when the
Longhorns and Trojans play
for the national title.
Young didn't hide his dis-
appointment when Bush won
the Heisman in a landslide on


Saturday night.
'This should give me a lit-
tle bit more edge to show the
world what a good team the
University of Texas is," he
said.
Always dynamic on the
move, Young proved he
could be a topflight passer
this season. He leads the
nation in efficiency rating
(168.8) with 2,769 yards and
26 touchdown passes.
He also leads the team
with 850 yards
rushing.
Texas offensive
tackle Jonathan Scott
also made the first
team, along with
teammates Michael
Huff, who won the
Thorpe Award as the
nation's best defensive back,
and defensive tackle
Rodrique Wright.
Wide receiver Dwayne
Jarrett and safety Darnell
Bing were the other USC
All-Americans.
Leinart was the All-
America quarterback last
season when he won the
Heisman Trophy. This year
he was third in the Heisman
voting and lost out to Young
for the top spot on the
All-America team.

DEAR ABBY


Woman doesn't have phrases

to communicate her praises


DEAR ABBY: I've been
dating a wonderful man for
several months. We have a
great relationship, and I know
I'm fortunate to have him. His
family is very kind and warm.
They have always welcomed
me into their home by inviting
me to family events, holidays,
etc.
The challenge is, his family
is from Eastern Europe. He
came to the United States at a
relatively young age, and his
English is perfect. However,
his parents and grandparents
do not speak or understand
English very well.
I want so much to sit down
and have a conversation with
his mom, but I can't I'm trying
to learn their language, but
their alphabet is different from
ours. Also, I am dyslexic.
While I will not give up on
learning their language, it will
certainly not happen
overnight.
I can't afford classes to get
professional help in learning
the language, and my
boyfriend can't always be right
by my side to translate. I'm
dying to be able to tell his
mother that the dinner was
good, or her blouse is pretty.
Can you help me? This will
probably be my family one day.
- LINGUISTICALLY LIM-

DEAR LIMITED: You don't
necessarily have to learn to

You can learn it phonetically,

phrases on tape. Ask your
boyfriend to record some of
the things you would like to,
say to his family, and then you
can "surprise" them the next
time you have dinner there.
DEAR ABBY: My fiance
and I are having a debate about
our wedding. He would like
one of his best friends, "Bill,"
who is my ex-boyfriend, to be
one of his groomsmen.
I don't feel comfortable with
Bill and his girlfriend being at
our wedding because they
have tried to break up my
fiance and me before. Abby,
they hate me - and my fiance
thinks they should be there to
celebrate our marriage. What
do you think about this? Their
invitation depends on your
response. - UPSET IN
MONTANA
DEAR UPSET: I disagree
with your boyfriend. The only
guests at your wedding should
be those who wish you well. It
would be extremely
inappropriate to have them
there.
If you and your fiance have
not had premarital counseling,
I hope you will seriously


consider it - just to be certain
you are on the same page
regarding other issues that are
sure to come up once you are
married. It could save you both
a lot of frustration and
heartache. Trust me.
DEAR ABBY: About a
month ago, you printed a letter
in your column about organ
donations from the father of a
little boy who had been shot to
death while the family vaca-
tioned in Europe. He had
donated his son's organs in the
country where the tragedy
occurred.
It brought to mind a ques-
tion I have had for years about
organ donation. Is it true that if
you are an organ donor, your
family has to pay to have it
done? - LONNIE IN
GREENFIELD, MO.
DEAR LONNIE: The
answer to your question is
NO. The donor family does
not have to pay anything. This
question has appeared in my
column in years past.
According to the Living Bank
in Houston, the person who
receives the organ is responsi-
ble for the expenses. The
costs are usually covered by
health insurance, including
Medicare and Medicaid. The
amount of insurance coverage
depends on the organ
involved, and the kind of
insurance policy the recipient
has.

Dear Lynne: We are looking for an easy way
out. Our tradition is homemade gifts for

just too much right now. Could you help us with

better.
Dear
Multitasking
Elves: I have two
thoughts for you.
First, think what


Lynne
Rossetto Kasper
www.splendidtable.or~


you can do in a
single shopping trip with only assembly
required, then think something they've probably
never tasted before that goes together quickly.
For the shopping trip, consider giving an
intriguing ingredient. With all the chefs and food
pros we talk to on the show, we always hear the
same thing - a great ingredient makes the dish.

-Shop and give
POMEGRANATE MOLASSES -
Considering this seems to be the year of the
pomegranate, I vote for pomegranate molasses
or syrup. You'll find bottles of this traditional
Middle East condiment at Mediterranean
groceries and specialty food stores for around
$5. Intensely sweet-tart and fruity, it's dynamite
in salad dressing, pan sauces, brushed on
roasted and grilled foods, drizzled over finished
dishes, and wonderful with desserts. Wrap it up,
tie on a card explaining how to use it, and you
are done.
PRECIOUS EYEBROWS AND OTHER
GREEN TEAS - Another shop-and-give idea is
a cup of instant tranquility - that is, green tea
for one in a colorful cup. Pick an exotic green tea
at a local teashop. I like Precious Eyebrows for
the name and the sense of freshness it brings on.
Find tisane cups (the kind with lids and
inserts for steeping loose tea) or mugs at
discount stores. Tuck the tea in the cup with
brewing instructions.

Fast and homemade
For homemade from scratch, walk on the wild
side. Quantities will change depending on the
size of your jars. I taste my way through the
amounts of sugar and Tabasco.
SWEET AND HOT RUM FRUITS GIFT
JARS - This compote of dried fruits plumped
in sweet, Tabasco-spiked rum is one of those
transforming condiments. Include a card with
each jar listing ideas how to use it. Serve with
ham, roast pork, smoked meats and roasted root
vegetables, fruitcake, or atop wedges,of sliced
fruits like pineapple, mango or papaya. Spoon it
over vanilla ice cream, panna cotta or white
chocolate mousse. (Believe it or not, chile and
sweet creamy concoctions make heavenly
couples.)
Start these now because the rum fruits need
at least a week to ripen. As long as the fruit is
covered in rum it will keep for months at cool
room temperature. I store it in the refrigerator
once they are opened.
Assemble mixed dried fruits, white rum,
sugar, salt, Tabasco sauce and attractive jars.
Arrange whole slices of fruit on sides of jars in
attractive patterns. Chop the rest of the fruit into
bite-sized pieces. Fill jars no more than I
three-quarters full (the fruit will expand with the
rum).
For every cup of chopped fruit, add about'/4 cup
sugar, a pinch salt and'/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce,
or to taste. Cover the fruit with rum.
Seal, turn jars upside down to blend
ingredients, and store in a dark, cool place until
needed.

Dear Lynne: My pizza dough is like lead. I
see TV chefs with these stretchy doughs that
they push around for a few moments and have a
thin crust. I need a sledgehammer to thin mine.
I can't understand it because mine is just yeast,
flour, salt and water. Do you have a recipe like
the ones they use? - Thank you from
Dough-Impaired
Dear Impaired: It's not the recipe, it's the
water. Add more water to your dough and you,
will get that thin crust. Work in a few t-
ablespoons at first to see how the dough reacts.
The other possible problem is how long you
are kneading the dough. To develop maximum
elasticity, you should knead about 10 minutes.
Also, check the nutrition label on your flour
sack. For a quarter-cup of flour, you should have
3 or 4 grams of protein. This protein becomes
stretchy gluten once the flour is blended with
liquid. It is this gluten that gives the dough
elasticity. If you are Using a low-protein flour
(like cake flour or flour especially made for
biscuits), you get less stretch. You want an
unbleached all-purpose or bread flour.

A Rockin' holiday meal


For Christmas dining,
consider using Rock
Cornish game hens.

By CAROL ANNE BLITZER
For AP Weekly Features
BATON ROUGE, La.--As
friends and family get together to
savor Christmas and other
holiday occasions a favorite main
course for cooks to consider is a
steaming platter of Rock Cornish
game hens.
So, food lovers often ask: "What
exactly are Cornish hens?"
The U.S. Department of
Agriculture identifies a Rock
Cornish game hen (they use that
terminology in describing the
Cornish hen) as "a young
immature chicken ... weighing not
more than 2 pounds ready-to-cook
weight, which was ... (bred) from
a Cornish chicken or the progeny
of a Cornish chicken crossed with
another breed of chicken."
In 1965, Donald Tyson, founder
of Tyson Foods, bred the Cornish
chicken with the White Rock hen
to create the famous Rock Cornish
game hen so popular today.
These days, Cornish hens are
available in the frozen-food
section of all supermarkets, and
they can often be purchased fresh
at farmers' and upscale markets.
A large Cornish hen will serve
two people; some hosts prefer to
offer the whole hens to carve at
the table as part of the serving
presentation.
Sharon Tyler Herbst in "The
New Food Lover's Tiptionary"
gives a good news-bad news
description of Cornish hens. "The
good news: Cornish game hens
look elegant and take less time to
cook than a whole chicken. The
bad news: You get less cluck for
your buck - they're more
expensive and have less meat per
pound than a regular chicken,"
she writes.
Herbst's tips for preparing
Cornish hens include pricking the
breast skin in several places so it
does not split when cooking;
brushing the skin with melted
butter, and placing the hens
several inches apart on an oiled
baking sheet for even browning.
"The Best Recipe," a
compilation of extensively tested
recipes and observations from the
editors of Cook's Illustrated
magazine, outlines cooking times
and temperatures to achieve the
moistest and most well-cooked
Cornish hen.
The book's editors recommend
roasting Cornish hens breast-side
down for about 25 minutes at
400 F and then turning the hens
breast-side up for about
25 minutes with the final few
minutes at 450� F for perfect
browning.


ASSUOCIAIUD PRE
Cornish hens are tasty, versatile and handy for any size of gathering. A large Cornish hen will serve two people;
some hosts prefer to offer the whole hens to carve up at the table as part of the serving presentation.


The editors say that keeping
the temperature at 4000 F until
the final browning will achieve the
best results, especially with a
quantity of the little chickens.
"As with all poultry, if the hen is
roasted breast side up, the breast
will surely overcook before the
legs and thighs get done," the
book states.
"Getting the birds to brown
properly with such a short stay in
the oven is difficult, too, especially
with six in a pan. If you think a
5000 F oven is the answer, think
again. Six little birds dripping fat
onto an overheated roasting pan
automatically sets off the smoke
alarms. Roasting these birds at
high temperatures also causes
their skin to bubble and blister."
The cookbook recommends
glazing the birds to achieve
beautiful browning.
Joe Dobie and his wife, Jackie,
operate Briarhill Farms in Mount
Hermon, where they raise fresh
Cornish hens and chickens. Joe
Dobie says Cornish hens are
popular for several reasons. "It's a
bird that they crossed to create a
real tremendous breast," he said.
"It's also a good size for two
people. You can split it right down
the middle."
The Dobies offer one piece of
advice for cooking Cornish hens
or any poultry. "Sprinkle a little
sugar on them," Joe Dobie said.
"It's not so much to make a glaze
but for the taste."
Here are some favorite recipes
for Cornish hens that would be
perfect for a holiday dinner party,
a Christmas buffet or a special
family dinner.

Colorful tart delivers rich and tasty mouthfuls


The Associated Press
This Gorgonzola cheese tart
with its blackberry-port sauce is
going to make a colorful
statement whenever it's offered.
First off, it's a great appetizer.
It's quite rich, and a small slice is
a perfect hors d'oeuvre or cocktail
nibbler. However, it does need to
be served on a plate, since the
blackberry-port sauce is either
spooned over, or put on the plate
before adding a slice of tart. This
sauce makes a great taste
contrast, the berries' fruitiness
balancing the savory cheese.
The cheese tart could also be
served as an elegant first course
for a holiday dinner.
Equipment note: The recipe
calls for a 17-by-8-inch tart pan,
but you may substitute a standard
9-inch round tart pan (with
removable bottom). And if the
cook is pressed for time, instead
of making the crust from scratch,
a bought frozen crust could be
substituted, and rolled into the
desired size and shape.

Gorgonzola Cheese Tart With
Blackberry-Port Sauce
(Recipe created for AP by the Oregon
Raspberry and Blackberry Commission.
Preparation 2 hours)
* FOR THE PASTRY:
1 /4 cups all-purpose flour


ASSOCIATED PRESS
This photo provided by the Oregon
Raspberry and Blackberry
Commission shows a Gorgonzola
Cheese Tart With Blackberry-Port
Sauce that's likely to make a
colorful statement whenever it's
offered.

/4 stick (6 tablespoons) cold
unsalted butter, cut into '/2-inch cubes
2 tablespoons cold vegetable
shortening
1/ teaspoon salt
2 to 4 tablespoons ice water
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
* FOR THE FILLING:
1 cup heavy cream
1 large egg
2 egg yolks
'/4 teaspoon salt
'4 teaspoon black pepper
5 ounces chilled Gorgonzola
cheese, crumbled (1 '/ cups)
For the Blackberry-Port Sauce:


16-ounce bag frozen blackberries,
thawed
3 tablespoons sugar
'/2 cup ruby port wine
1 teaspoon salt
* TO MAKE TART SHELL
CRUST:
Blend flour, butter, shortening and
salt in a bowl with your fingertips or a
pastry blender (or pulse in a food
processor) just until most of mixture
resembles coarse meal with small
(roughly pea-size) butter and
shortening lumps.
Drizzle evenly with 2 tablespoons
ice water and gently stir with a fork
(or pulse in processor) until
incorporated. To test for texture,
squeeze a small amount of dough in
hand: If it doesn't hold together, add
more ice water, '2 tablespoon at a
time, stirring (or pulsing) until just
incorporated, then test again. (If you
overwork mixture, pastry will be
tough.)
Turn out mixture onto a lightly
floured surface and divide into
4 portions. With heel of your hand,
smear each portion once or twice in
a forward motion. Gather dough
together with scraper and press into
a ball. Flatten into a 5-inch disk. Chill
dough, wrapped in plastic wrap, until
firm, at least 1 hour.
(Dough can be chilled up to 1 day
ahead. Let stand at room
temperature until slightly softened,
about 20 minutes, before rolling out.)
Roll out dough on a lightly floured
surface with a floured rolling pin into


a 17-by-8-inch rectangle and fit into
a 17-by-8-inch tart pan. Trim excess
dough. Lightly prick bottom and
sides all over with fork. Sprinkle
walnuts across crust; press to set
into crust. Chill until firm, about
30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Line pastry shell with foil and fill
with pie weights or dry beans. Bake
in middle of oven for 20 minutes,
then carefully remove foil and
weights and bake until golden, 10 to
15 minutes more. Cool shell in pan
20 minutes.
* TO MAKE FILLING:
Whisk together cream, whole egg,
yolks, salt and pepper until
combined. Put tart shell (still in pan)
on baking sheet and scatter cheese
evenly in shell. Slowly pour custard
into shell and bake in middle of oven
until golden around edges of filling
and custard is just set, 30 to
35 minutes. Cool tart completely on
a rack.
Cut tart and serve at room
temperature topped with
Blackberry-Port Sauce.
O TO MAKE BLACKBERRY-
PORT SAUCE:
In a medium bowl, mix together
blackberries, sugar, port and salt.
Mash berries lightly with fork, so that
some berry pieces remain. Serve
spooned over tart or ladled under tart
on plate.
Makes 12 to 14 appetizer
servings.

Bailey, 21, of Lake City, was driving his 2000 Toyota pickup truck north on I-75 in Alachua County when he began hydroplaning after attempting to change lanes around 8:00 p.m. Saturday, according to a media release by FHP. Bailey lost control of his truck, drifted into and rolled through the median, and entered the south bound lane where a 2013 Nissan four-door occupied by four Chinese nationals struck Baileys truck, the release said. Bailey, and two of the Nissans passengers, were pronounced dead on scene, according to FHP. The Nissans driver and one of its passengers remain in critical con dition at UF Health in Gainesville, FHP said. The two in critical condition are not looking good, but theyre still with us, FHP Public Affairs Officer Tracy Hisler-Pace said. Bailey Lake City man, 21, had just graduated from law enforcement academy. BAILEY continued on 6A Minimum flow levels for rivers in dispute By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com Controversy is brew ing as local factions environmental groups, attorneys, area utility providers and concerned citizens take sides regarding restrictions designed to protect area springs by the Suwannee River Water Management District. Several people voiced concerns for both sides of the issue, as well as debat ed whether Minimum Flows and Levels should be issued now, during Tuesdays North Florida Regional Water Supply Partnership Stakeholder meeting. Most of the concerns voiced during the four-hour meeting centered around discus sion of the minimum flows and levels and recovery strategies for the Lower Santa Fe and Ichetucknee Rivers and Priority Springs. The purpose of mini mum flows and levels for a water body is to protect the resource. We have to set the minimum flow that is required to prevent sig nificant harm that might occur to the resource, said Carlos Herd, SRWMD director of water supply. The technical report for the MFLs for the lower Santa Fe and Ichetucknee Rivers and Priority Springs, was completed and released Nov. 22. (The report is posted on the Suwannee River Water Management Districts Web site.) Herd said Water Management District officials have been work ing to establish the MFLs for more than two years. A lot of the concerns is that ... were moving too fast, Herd said. Weve slowed that pro cess down a little bit and there will be another rural development work shop in January. Herd said there are concerns on both sides where some people think water management offi cials are not being restric tive enough and the other side thinks the district is Conservation groups, utilities set to face off. By AMANDA WILLIAMSON awilliamson@lakecityreporter.com Snow Day went off without a hitch, and Busy Bee B&B Food Stores was largely the reason behind the snowy fun in North Central Florida. Over the weekend, children enjoyed a festive Saturday filled with snow slides, bounce houses, a visit from Santa and live entertainment. Small snowmen were crafted, snowballs were patted out and snow angels were etched into the icy patches that dotted the downtown Olustee Park. We do this for the com munity who supports Busy Bee and B&B throughout the year, said Marshall Beck, vice president of marketing for the com pany. Its big for us to see the community come out, to see the kids enjoying that snow and doing some thing they dont get to do ordinarily. Its a big reward for us. According to Beck, the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce approached Busy Bee three years ago Busy Bee kept Snow Day 2013 buzzing By AMANDA WILLIAMSON awilliamson@lakecityreporter.com Santa waved from the back of a Lake City fire truck as the annual Christmas parade weaved through town Monday night. Lining the sides of Marion Avenue, chil dren stared up at Santas jolly face. Their pockets were stuffed with candy handed out by parade participants, and their faces held excited smiles as Santas words rang clearly through the night. Merry Christmas, he said. For many, the parade seemed to represent the holiday spirit. If all the people in the country and all the cities could be as connected as the people here tonight, what a wonderful nation we would have, said Live Oak resident John Cahill, who added that the parade allowed people to share in the comfort and happiness of the Christmas spirit. He clutched a warm hot chocolate in his hands as he waited for the parade to start. Next to him, his wife, Cheri Cahill, shared a quilted blanket draped across their legs. The two joined a friend of theirs, Jean Allen, roadside in the downtown area to watch the parade. After coming last year, the group knew they couldnt miss the parade this year. I think Lake City should be real proud, Allen said. It creates memories for the chil dren. Lake City Police Department led the Christmas Parade, with Chief Argatha Gilmore wishing the crowd a Merry Christmas. Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter fol lowed behind Gilmore. The Lake City Fire Department and the Mayor came afterward, with the Mayor riding on an old LCFD fire engine. All the law enforcement personnel flashed their vehicles lights, and a chorus of sirens echoed through the streets. A group of JROTC students in Santa hats marched along the parade route. County commissioners handed out candy and wished parade visitors a Merry Christmas. Representative Elizabeth Porter (R-Lake City), on a lighted golf cart, waved at her constituents as she rode through town. Churches from all over town including Christ Central and Hopeful Baptist Church participated in the event. Many of the floats entered by the local churches depicted a Nativity scene. The Battle of Olustee Festival featured a float in the parade that showcased a replica of the CSS Virginia. Several members of the Blue Grey Army stood on the float and marched alongside it. Columbia County Forestry Department pulled a float with Christmas extravaganza was postponed from Sat. due to rain, but that hardly detracted from the excitement. SPECTACULAR Parade was worth the wait JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Steve Briscoe (from left) and B&B Food Stores marketing director Marshall Beck awarded Alyson LeFever a total of $62 after playing the Cash Cube game during Snow Day at Olustee Park in downtown Lake City on Saturday, B&B gave away $15,000 worth of cash and prizes. BUSY continued on 3A Council tentatively removes photo ban By STEVEN RICHMOND srichmond@lakecityreporter.com City Manager Wendell Johnson presented a revised draft of Lake Citys city council meeting procedures that no lon ger included photography restrictions Monday eve ning. Johnson held a work shop Nov. 18 to city coun cil members to discuss and examine a draft of the city council rules and pro cedures in response to SB 50, a piece of state legisla tion outlining bare bones requirements for public participation during pub lic meetings. In the original first draft, the city proposed a ban on photography during the meetings without the con sent of the Mayor. Photo opportunities are allowed before and following a council meet ing, the first draft read. Photo opportunities dur ing a council meeting will be allowed only upon invi tation of the Mayor or pre siding officer. ABOVE: State Rep.

Ralph Garlick Jr., 53, originally told investiga-tors that he had found the baby after hearing her cry, Volusia County Sheriff’s deputies said. He flagged down a newspaper delivery-man, who then called 911. Garlick identified himself to authorities using his dead brother’s name, but under further ques-tioning, he admitted the baby belonged to his girl-friend, although he isn’t the father, officials said. Garlick said his 34-year-old girlfriend didn’t want the newborn girl and that he was trying to find a safe place for the baby, authori-ties said. Under Florida law, a newborn can be left at a public place, such as a fire station or police station without any legal repercussions.Man to face judge in Facebook case NEW YORK — A Florida investment adviser and onetime Oregon gubernatorial candidate faces prison time for a $13 million securities fraud scheme that pros-ecutors say capitalized on enthusiasm for shares of Facebook and other Internet companies about to go public. Craig L. Berkman of Odessa, Fla., is to be sen-tenced Monday in federal court in Manhattan. He pleaded guilty in June to securities fraud and wire fraud and agreed to serve between eight and 10 years in prison. Berkman admitted he falsely claimed to investors that he owned shares of Facebook Inc., Groupon Inc., LinkedIn Inc., among other companies. He told investors their money would be used to buy shares of companies before their initial public offerings while over-rep-resenting the number of shares he owned. Berkman also was once Oregon’s Republican party chairman.Burglar swallows 2 necklaces LARGO — A man faces burglary and tampering charges after an X-ray machine revealed a dark mass near his stomach while he was being booked into jail. Pinellas County Sheriff’s officials say the mass turned out to be two necklaces stolen during a Dec. 10 bur-glary in Safety Harbor. Twenty-one-year-old Joseph Ramos was arrested Dec. 11 when he was stopped for driving a vehi-cle that was stolen during the burglary. Various items from the home were inside the vehicle. When Ramos was being booked into jail, he stepped on the SecurPass X-ray machine and the dark spot was identified as the necklaces. He underwent surgery to remove the necklaces. The owner later identified the items.Motorcylist killed in I-75 crash TAMPA — A motorcyclist is dead following a crash on Interstate 75 near Tampa. The Florida Highway Patrol says the crash occurred just after 7 p.m. Sunday as 46-year-old Elmer Cecil Brown Jr. was traveling along an entrance ramp to northbound I-75. 28 years for Ohio $100M charity scam CLEVELAND A man convicted of master-minding a $100 million, cross-country Navy veterans charity fraud was sentenced to 28 years in prison Monday. Judge Steven Gall also ordered the defendant, who identifies himself as 67-year-old Bobby Thompson, to pay a $6 million fine. Authorities say the defendant is Harvard-trained attor-ney John Donald Cody. The Ohio attorney general’s office, which handled his trial, asked the judge in a filing last week to sen-tence him to 41 years in prison. The judge rejected a request for a new trial. The defense had said com-ments by jurors after the verdict that they were disappointed he hadn’t testified showed they were biased against him. The defendant, whose appearance in court Monday was neat in contrast to the final days of his trial, slumped in his chair as the sentence was read. He complained to the judge about alleged abusive treatment by jailers while locked up during the trial. There was no immediate response from the sheriff’s department. Jailers said earlier that the defendant had acted erratically and had bloodied his forehead smashing it against a holding cell wall. The judge said the crimes had harmed veterans who were the intend-ed beneficiaries of the donations and also had hurt other charities as donors became skeptical of giving. “Everyone’s afraid to give,” Gall said. He said the sentence reflected the length, extent and amount of the charity “charade.” Defense attorney Joseph Patituce said after the verdict and again after the sentencing that ineffective legal representation issues stemming from limited preparation time might be a basis for an appeal.

Ward Downtown Lake City (386) 752-5470 ST A TE NEWS Bills make addresses exempt from records Two Pinellas County law makers have filed bills that would provide a public-records exemption for email addresses that are used by tax collectors to send notices to taxpayers. Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, filed the Senate version of the bill (SB 538) on Monday, three days after the House version (HB 421) was filed by Rep. Ed Hooper, R-Clearwater. The bills point to concerns about identity theft and say that email is increasingly used for govern ment business such as tax pay ments. The public availability of personal e-mail addresses invites and exacerbates thriving and well-documented criminal activities putting property own ers at increased risk of harm, the bills say. Such harm could be significantly curtailed by allowing the tax collector to remove the availability of tax payer e-mail addresses. DOH workers info could be shielded Raising safety concerns, Rep. Ronald Doc Renuart, R-Ponte Vedra Beach, has filed a bill that would provide a public-records exemption for personal informa tion about current and former Florida Department of Health investigators and inspectors. The bill (HB 419) was filed Friday and is similar to a measure (SB 390) filed last month by Sen. Alan Hays, R-Umatilla. Renuarts proposal, in part, would provide an exemption for Department of Health employees who investi gate and prosecute complaints against health-care practitioners and for employees who inspect practitioners or health-care facili ties. It would exempt information about the employees home addresses, telephone numbers and photographs, along with information about their spouses and children. The release of such identifying information might place such current or for mer personnel of the Department of Health and their family mem bers in danger of physical and emotional harm from disgruntled individuals who have contentious reactions to actions carried out by personnel of the Department of Health or whose business or professional practices have come under the scrutiny of investigators and inspectors of the Department of Health, the bill says. Scott touts teacher raises in districts Gov. Rick Scott said Monday that 52 school districts have approved teacher pay raises stemming from $480 million that was set aside in this years state budget. Approval of the raises has taken months because of collective bargaining. The Scott announcement pointed to 14 districts --Broward, Franklin, Gadsden, Gilchrist, Glades, Hardee, Jefferson, Lafayette, Lake, Levy, Putnam, Santa Rosa, Seminole and Washington --as joining districts that approved raises earlier. Florida has 67 county school districts. EPA grants to help with water projects The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is using $6 million in grant money from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for water projects across the state. The money will be used for stormwater-treatment improvements in the Pensacola Bay and Wakulla Springs water sheds in northwest Florida, Lake Gwyn in Polk County, Lake Dora in Tavares, the Winter Haven Chain of Lakes, the Tampa Bay watershed, and the Myakka River watershed, according to a DEP news release issued Friday. A regional stormwater-treatment facility in the Lower St. Johns River watershed is to receive $796,007, while Plant City is getting $350,000 for stormwa ter treatment in the area of Mill Creek and the Hillsborough River. St. Lucie County is getting $500,000 for a stormwater-treat ment project to reduce pollution entering the North Fork of the St. Lucie River. Brevard County is to receive $321,393 for the construction of a wet detention pond. Tallahassee is getting $115,600 for its Think About Personal Pollution (TAPP) out reach project intended to alter personal behavior to reduce pollutants into the Upper Wakulla River. Venice is to receive $245,000 for both stormwatermanagement and public-educa tion programs that target local beaches and coastal areas. News Service of Florida JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Motorist, pedestrian collide on US 90 The windshield of a car is damaged after a motorist hit a pedestrian on U.S. 90 near Sisters Welcome Road Monday afternoon. The pedestrian was taken to Lake City Medical Center. His condition was unknown at press time. No one else was hurt. Lesson gone wrong lands woman in jail By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com An attempt to teach a woman not to leave her baby unattended in a car went awry Sunday and resulted in the womans arrest, Lake City Police Department records show. Shawanna Latasha Davis, 20, 4131 NE 15th St., was arrested on an Alachua County arrest warrant for grand theft and other charges. According to LCPD, at 3:13 p.m. officer Rebecca Miles was dispatched to Hip Hop Fish & Chicken, at the corner of Washington and Marion Streets in reference to a stolen vehicle. When Miles arrived, Davis, the complain ant, was standing next to a beauty supply store on Marion Avenue and said she walked into the beauty supply store for a brief moment, leav ing her infant daughter strapped in her car seat, and when she returned the car and her daughter were gone. Miles then saw the miss ing car across the street heading east on Railroad Street. Miles ran back to her vehicle but noticed the car pulled back into the Hip Hop Fish & Chicken parking lot, so she pulled in behind the vehicle. The driver, who identi fied herself as Daviss cousin, told Miles that she and another family mem ber were going to Daviss house for a visit when they saw the vehicle parked in front of the beauty supply store. They were going to tell Davis they were headed to her house, but noticed Daviss infant had been left in the back seat of the unat tended vehicle. The cousin told Miles she decided to jump in the car and drive around the block until Davis noticed the car was gone in order to teach her a lesson about leaving the infant in the vehicle unattended. After Miles determined Davis vehicle had not been stolen and the infant was not kidnapped, she conducted a license check on Davis. During the license check Miles learned that Davis had an active war rant out of Alachua County for grand theft and numer ous other charges. Davis was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $120,000 bond. Her baby and the car were released to her cousin at Daviss request, records show. No local charges were filed in connection with the case. Davis left infant unattended in car, then was arrested on outstanding warrants. Davis Two arrested over stolen ATM card From staff reports Two Lake City women, arrested Friday, face charges for allegedly stealing another womans ATM card. Amanda Lee Brinkley, 34, 115 NE Cloudy Court, and Jaime Lynn Sowards, 36, 125 SE Old Mance Glen were charged with ille gal use of credit cards, burglary and lar ceny. Each was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility. According to Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports, Deputy Joseph Vargo was assigned to investigate a vehicle burglary that occurred Sunday, Dec. 8. The victim told Vargo that the key fob had been stolen off her key ring while she was at work. The keys were kept in an area where employees keep their per sonal property, and the area is inaccessible to the general public. The victim told Vargo that the fob had been used to unlock her vehicle, her debit card had been sto len out of it and the car was locked again. The card was report edly used at Pizza Hut and reportedly two attempts were made to withdraw money at a local ATM. The victim told Vargo she believed Sowards, a coworker, was responsi ble for the theft and bur glary and said Sowards is almost always in the company of her friend, Brinkley. Brinkley and Sowards were arrested Friday, but both denied having any knowledge of the crime, reports said. HAVE QUESTIONS ON AUTO INSURANCE? CHAT WITH NICOLE 755-1666 Need A Quote? Brinkley Sowards in need of a sponsor for the annual Snow Day. Prior to the request, Busy Bee was still part of the popular community event. In the past, they have given away a Jeep Wrangler to one lucky winner who selected the Jeeps key from a pot filled with hundreds of keys. I dont do that anymore because I wanted more people to benefit, Beck said. Its the same amount of money, but just spread out to more people. Now, Busy Bee handles the bounce houses, the snow and $15,000 worth of prizes. Two women, Beck said, won $1,000 a piece on Saturday with others taking home smaller jackpots. Many of the people that won the monetary prizes planned to us the extra cash to help them through the holiday season, Beck said. One woman in particular, said Dennille Decker, the executive director of the Chamber of Commerce, waited at Snow Day all day in hopes of winning the prize money. When she won the $1,000, she approached the stage in tears. The money meant her family would have a Christmas, Decker said. Its a good thing for the Chamber to do, but they need a sponsor, he said. I cant do it without them, and they cant do it without a sponsor. Throughout the year, Beck talks to vendors to ensure the event fea tures just the right mix of entertainment, funnel cakes and crafty products to purchase. As the event draws closer, he works with the Chamber for weeks in advance to pre pare for the big day. Rain threatened to ruin the days fun, but it held at bay until Snow Day ended at 4 p.m. The parade, however, had to be delayed until Monday evening. Approximately 250 runners showed up early Saturday for the Jingle Bell Run, then dis persed as the race ended and the rain started. People just continued to come throughout the day, Beck said, estimat ing that Snow Day saw between 13,000 to 15,000 people converge in the downtown Olustee Park. It was a success. Beck thanked the Chamber for allowing Busy Bee to be a part of the Snow Day, thanked the community for supporting the stores throughout the year and thanked Gainesville Ice for providing the 30 tons of shaved ice for the event. All in all, it was such a memorable day for a cou ple of reasons, Decker said. Busy Bee provided several children the opportunity to do things they had never done before, such as playing in the snow. Snow Day outside of the $15,000 in cash and prizes cost $15,000 to put on. There arent many businesses able or will ing to put that amount of money back into the community, Decker said. We feel fortunate to have Busy Bee B&B as our sponsor. ... We appreciate everyone who braved the elements and showed up. We look forward to see ing them next year.

In total Busy Bee gave out $15,000 in cash and prizes during Snow Day. Steve Briscoe, emcee of the event, talks with Isabella DAnnunzio, who just got out of the cash cube.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Redistricting questions deserve answers Give low-income earners exit from Social Security A new study just pub-lished by the National Institute on Retirement Security – “Race and Retirement Insecurity in the United States” – presents a dis-mal snapshot of the state of retire-ment savings of minority American families. It reports that 54.3 percent of blacks work for employers that offer retirement plans compared to 62.3 percent of whites. And 43.9 percent of blacks participate in those plans compared to 53.9 per-cent of whites. Among Latinos, 37.8 percent work for employers with retirement plans and just 29.7 percent partici-pate. Only 37.9 percent of non-white Americans have assets in a retire-ment account compared to 63.4 percent of whites. And the mean amount of retirement savings held by black households is $20,132, by Latino households is $17,600, compared to $111,749 held by white house-holds. Many, usually those on the left who claim to represent the interests of low income Americans, say the answer to retirement security for minorities is Social Security. But Social Security, a demonstrably bad deal to begin with, is broke. Log on to www.socialsecurity. gov/estimator/. This is the Social Security Administration’s calculator where you can estimate your retire-ment benefit. The site warns that the benefit estimate it reports for you may be different from what you actually get for various reasons, including “...by 2033 the payroll taxes collected will be enough to pay only about 77 cents for each dollar of scheduled benefits.” In other words, the Social Security Administration has announced to all Americans now in their forties and younger, who will be retiring in 20 years or more, to expect only a little more than 75 percent of their promised benefits. Year after year our brave politicians in Washington, who will claim they are looking out for us, hide from this huge problem affecting almost every working American. They hide because it is hard. If payroll taxes, as the Social Security Administration indicates, are almost 25 percent short to pay required benefits, then taxes need to be raised by almost 25 percent to make up the difference. What politician is going to propose this? Other options are to cut benefits paid or to raise the age at which they can be collected. Another possible outcome, so typical of what we can expect from Washington, is to “means test.” That is, leave everyone paying taxes, but remove benefits for those above a cut-off income level. This would essentially turn Social Security into a welfare pro-gram. The bottom line is that minority Americans, who on average constitute our lowest income earning Americans, get the worst deal of all. They don’t have extra resources to put in a wealth build-ing retirement account. And the resources they do have are taxed into a Social Security system that pays out a poor benefit which in another 20 years won’t even entire-ly be there. End the tyranny. At least give low income Americans the option to get out of the Social Security sys-tem. Allow them a choice to take their payroll tax and invest those funds to build their own retirement account nest egg. Conservatively invested funds over a 45-year working life can produce savings that will pay retire-ment income several times greater than Social Security benefits. Over thirty years ago, workers in Chile were given the option to opt-out of their Social Security system. A recent report from a Chilean con-sulting firm, Dictuc, indicates that private accounts in Chile payout retirement income equal to 87 per-cent of what workers were earning before retirement. Today’s Social Security benefits, even forgetting about the upcoming shortfalls, don’t match 50 percent of pre-retirement income Let’s help solve our national dilemma and also give low-income wage earners freedom and dig-nity and a chance to build wealth. Give them the option to get out from under Social Security and save in a personal retirement account. The Florida Supreme Court on Friday ruled state lawmakers and their aides must testify in an ongoing lawsuit chal-lenging the 2012 redistricting process. “Legislative privilege,” however far it goes, doesn’t shield them from answering ques-tions under oath about what many see as a botched attempt to redraw legislative and congressional dis-tricts in a manner that comports with new state con-stitutional amendments requiring common-sense fairness. It was a good decision.Redistricting, always a messy business, was supposed to be a little less tawdry this time around, with the adoption in 2010 of the Fair Districts Amendments. These twin measures require, among other things, that legislative and congressional di stricts be “compact,” and “where feasible utilize ex isting political and geographical boundaries.” We can’t speak to how things worked out elsewhere in Florida, but for us, redistricting 2012 was something of a bust. Yes, our state House district got some muchneeded tweaking, such that no longer are six Dixie County voters cut off from family and friends in an absurd example of gerrymandering gone wild. But as for the Senate, voters in this neck of North Florida remain stuck right where they were before 2012: with no real representation in Tallahassee. Charlie Dean is a competent senator, but his interests clearly lie to the south – in Citrus and Marion counties, his old political stomping grounds, and where most of the power and wealth in District 5 reside. It’s natural that a former Citrus County sheriff would come to represent us, considering how the district is drawn. District 5 resembles a huge “C” scrawled shakily across the top of the peninsula, starting at Citrus and Marion before snaking its wa y clockwise through Levy, Dixie, Gilchrist, Lafayette Suwannee, Columbia, Union and Baker counties. We know the difficulties of drawing Senate districts in rural areas. All of Florida’s 19 million peo-ple must be divided up into 40 neat compartments, meaning we can’t very well expect to exclude folks who may not share our basic interests or views. Still, we’d like to see those interests at least a little better represented. Folks in Citrus County are no doubt fine Floridians, but they share little in common with us culturally, geographically or eco-nomically. Change on some level is certainly called for.The high court’s ruling means we will at least get a glimpse at what drove the reapportionment pro-cess in 2012. Armed with that information, maybe we’ll have a better shot at making those changes next time around.To the Editor:Let’s recap what the Center For American Progress lefties believe our 2012 election shortcomings were, other than that a majority of our vote was for conservative candi-dates and values. First, the voter turn out which the Supervisor of Elections office doesn’t control, just tabulates. Second, the overall voter registration, which the Supervisor of Elections office cannot legally affect in any manner other than ensuring the registrant is legally permitted to vote. Third, the rate of registered voters removed from the rolls, which by law, is the Supervisor of Elections office’s sworn duty. I guess doing your sworn duty is pass! Fourth, voter-waiting time, and if early voting, absentee ballots by request, and well-manned voting precincts is a bad thing then the Center For American Progress might want to vote in Palm Beach County! Oh wait, Palm Beach County leaned left so all their foi-bles were probably overlooked. The last items were provisional ballots cast and rejected and absentee bal-lots rejected. The provisional ballot rejection falls directly on the voter, not the Supervisor of Elections office, because if you don’t know your precinct or that if you are even registered then you are probably a low information voter and should probably have stayed home anyway. As for the absentee ballots being rejected, if you can’t follow simple, written directions the previous statement probably applies to you also. Anyone remember the “Palm Beach County butterfly ballot”? I voted that ballot and there were no questions if you READ the direc-tions. Enough said! Let me admit that I have a dog in this fight. Since moving here from Palm Beach County in 2005, I have volunteered, as a poll deputy for the Columbia County Sheriff’s office serving the Supervisor of Elections office, in every election since then. I can absolutely guarantee that every voter who was served by any precinct to which we had the honor to be assigned was served by cour-teous, helpful, non-partisan, profes-sional, voluntary, citizen personnel as can be found anywhere within this state. To have a self-declared, partisan organization disparage a duly elected office of the State of Florida, because the outcomes of an election office didn’t reflect their views, pretty much reveals their agenda. Typical left-wing bovine excreta, regurgitated for mass con-sumption. I would be perfectly willing to match Columbia County’s election office personnel and volunteers, top to bottom, against any other elec-tion office in the State of Florida.

COURTESY International Certified Master Groomer Shanda Friend, owner of A Groom Above, has achieved the prestigious title of International Certified Master Groomer, a title not to be taken lightly or compared to certificate of comple tion. It has taken hundreds of hours of hands-on training, countless continuing education classes and a multitude of test demanding a high degree of knowledge and understanding toward pet breeds and grooming standards. A Groom Above is located at 4816 West US 90. Were working with the Chinese embassy, finding the family and next-of-kin. Bailey and the two criti cally injured individuals were not wearing seatbelts and neither driver was sus pected of DUI, according to the report. A Lake City native, Bailey just graduated from Florida Gateway Colleges Law Enforcement Academy and passed his FDLE state-cer tification exam, according to the program director John Jewett. He was a great student, dedicated and real enthu siastic about becoming a law enforcement officer, Jewett said. He always gave 100 percent and was well-liked by everybody. He was a good, solid recruit. Never back down, never give up Stephen Taylor didnt know Bailey before they both joined the same class at the academy. After spend ing four hours a night train ing to become law enforce ment officers over the past year, the two became like brothers. He took something that was a long, gruesome trial and made it fun, Taylor said. You could bank on him making you laugh before a test, pepper spray, anything. When something gruesome came up that pushed us to the point of quitting, wed always say never back down, never give up. We both used to say that, it was like our phrase. Bailey was set to be a groomsman in Taylors wedding next November. According to Taylor, Bailey drew inspiration for his law enforcement career field from his uncle, Columbia County Sheriffs Deputy Kevin Bailey. His uncles a good guy and a great man, a good role model, Taylor said. He wanted to be like him. Kevin Bailey, 29, recalled seeing his nephew express a real interest in public safety at an early age. Everytime a fire truck, police car, ambulance or something else with sirens went by, wed both make our parents take us and follow it, he said. It was always a thing for him and me. He just cared about everybody and what they were doing and how he could help them accom plish what they needed to do. He was always will ing to help somebody out. Even if you told him no, hed just hold a flashlight or hand you a tool just out of reach. Once Kevin Bailey became a patrol deputy with CCSO, his newphew took interest and the two began discussing a career in law enforcement. There were two things I told him: One, keep God first. Two, never let any thing get to you, think posi tive and stay positive. The kind of son youd want to have Ron Knowles, principal of Hidden Oak Elementary in Gainesville, where Baileys mother works, said he has known the family for about eight to 10 years. He was very respectful of adults, a yes-sir-no-sir kind-of-guy, Knowles said. He was just an incredibly firendly person who would do anything for anybody. If I had a son, Hunter would be the model of what Id want. Hes genuine. Everything is real about him. Friends and family, dev astated by the news, gath ered together Sunday after noon to pay homage to one of Baileys favorite activi tiesriding. He really enjoyed trucks. Most of us have these big, suped-up, jackedup trucks, said Kayla Fussell, who knew Bailey. Yesterday we all met up.. [at 5:00 p.m.], gathered in a line and drove through town and back across town. Then we met at his par ents old house on Sisters Welcome and headed out to Osceola National Forest. He loved to ride trails, its a fun thing we loved to do. She, too, remembered Baileys good-natured spirit and ability to make people laugh. One time me, Corey, Ryan and Hunter were in the forest real far out, Fussell said. The boys had to stop on the side of road to use the restroom and it was dark, at night. Hunter thought it would be a funny idea to turn the lights off and haul down the road like we forgot them. But despite his playful antics, his friends remem bered him as a selfless, thoughtful man. I knew him for about three years, Fussell said. It may not seem like a long time, but when you have a good friend like that, its like you knew him for a lifetime. He would take the shirt off his back for anybody.

Bob Knight, director of the Howard T. Odum Florida Springs Institute, objected to the proposed MFLs said they werent protective enough. Im really concerned that the district is relaxing the MFLs and making flow targets for the Ichetucknee and Santa Fe Rivers much lower than they should be and theyre not protecting the flows of the rivers by making those lower, he said, noting he believes the district should use a water balance approach in setting the MFLs. They basical ly softened their original draft which would call for 33 million gallons a day of recovery, now theyre say ing we only need 11 million gallons a day. I think they are doing that under pres sure from the public utili ties who are saying they are going to sue the district if they issue these MFLs. Instead of using the best science, they are being swayed by political science for the MFLs. John Jopling, Ichetucknee Alliance presi dent, also voiced concerns about the MFLs but said they needed to be estab lished now. We completely under stand that there is scien tific debate about these, he said. Frankly, we think the MFLs ought to be set considerably higher. We think we should be taking a lot more proactive steps towards limiting these companies for consumptive use permits and we think a lot more should be done. We regard the MFLs that are being proposed as com pletely inadequate to really protecting our rivers, but we also appreciate theyre a first step and we think a critical first step. Merrillee MalwitzJipson, Our Santa Fe River president, said originally when they were working on the MFLs, they were told there was a 33 million gallon per day reduction in the flow, but now after the Peer review, its been reduced to 11 million gal lons per day reduction. My understanding is the baseflow of the rivers is going down and were con cerned that these MFLs are stretched out farther with more and more informa tion looked at they will go down even more, she said. They (Water Management District officials) are trying to establish MFLs at a very low rate when they should be established a lot higher. We want the MFLs issued, but our position is that if these MFLs are issued now how effective are they going to be. In addition there are concerns about the science used to collect the data and the results of the Peer Review that is included in the report. The Peer Review The University of Florida Water Institute did a peer review an independent scientific review of the doc ument, where UF Water Institute officials added their professional opinions to the Water Management District technical report. The peer review includ ed comments on how we did modeling for devel oping the base line and we took their comments into effect when we redid the base line, Herd said. Some of the stakehold ers want us to have the report re-peer reviewed, but theres no premise for that in the statute. Weve addressed the Peer Reviews comments so were not taking that back to peer review. MEETING Continued From 1A The Lake City Reporter contended in an editorial that the proposed photo ban was in violation of Floridas open meetings law. The Lake Shore Hospital Authority, which had such a ban in place, voted Dec. 9 to allow photography in a manner that does not interrupt or disturb the meeting. Since the workshop, council staff has had time to review and recommend changes to the meeting procedures. Johnson said. There were changes identified by the coun cil...and a memo by [City Attorney Herbert Darby] with some significant changes from his office, Johnson said Monday night. The draft you have tonight contains all those changes...The provision in regards to photography in the council was totally eliminated. City council members now have until the next council meeting to review the revised draft and make further recommendations before the procedures become formalized. In other business, the council: Approved the creation of the Special Magistrate position for their code enforcement activities; Approved the first read ing of an ordinance that would increase the mem bership of the Community Redevelopment Advisory Committee by providing for the appointment of members from the board of commissioners and the chamber of commerce; Declared certain cityowned property surplus and authorized its sale at a public auction; Approved a bid from Mesa Products, Inc. for the installation of a deep anode cathodic protection system. Approved to continue waiving water and sewer impact fees for all of 2014 in hopes of facilitating res idential and nonresidential development; Rejected all bids prior to Aug. 27 for the St. Margarets Wastewater Treatment Plant project, including the low bid by Brandes Design-Build Inc. for nearly $4.3 million. The next city council meeting will be held at City Hall Tuesday, Jan. 21 at 7:00 p.m. COUNCIL Continued From 1A JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter Speed Stacking Competition Eastside Elementary Schools fifth-graders Logan Dicks, 11, and Eyona Williams, 11, prac tice for their individual competitions on Friday.

Decked out in Christmas lights and Santa hats, the Fort White High School Band played Christmas tunes throughout the night includ ing Jingle Bells. Century Ambulance, Shining Star Academy of the Arts, The Ichetucknee Partnership and the Lake City roller derby team also participated in the parade. Five-year-old Amaya Lemite liked seeing Santa the most. Because he brings our gifts on Christmas, she said, adding that she also enjoyed seeing the colorful Christmas lights on all the parade floats. Each float was required to have lights, and many decided to follow this years parade theme, Miracle on Marion. Several floats reenacted scenes from the movie. Parade float winners were Christ Central in first place, First Full Gospel in Second place, Waynes Carpet Plus in third place. Its a tradition, said Amayas moth er, Brittany Kennedy. We bring them out here every year to see. Kennedy came with her friend, Lacey DePratter, and DePratters two children. Both mothers wanted their children to experience the Christmas parade together. Amaya and five-yearold Julian Azbille both wore Santa hats throughout the night. Julian loved that the JROTC members wore hats just like his. Lake City residents Jay and Lynn Harvey came out for the parade to sup port their daughter, Samantha Selgas, who attends Fort White High School. The also enjoyed watching their grand daughter experience her first parade. It was a nice parade this year, Lynn Harvey said. The hot chocolate was a bonus. ... They all had a lot of really nice floats. They did put a lot of effort last year, but this year the floats were better. The couple hoped next year would bring an even better Christmas parade, especially since it was their daughters last year at Fort White High School. But as long as there are grandba bies, theres always room for a parade, Lynn Harvey said.

DEAR ABBY: My mother-in-law sent my 7-year-old son a gift and a card for his birthday. They arrived about a week early. A few days before his birthday, she called and asked if he had received them. He said he had, but before he could explain that he hadn’t opened them, she started talk-ing about the gift inside, revealing the surprise. I have now “heard” she’s upset with me and my son for this awkward moment. She says that from now on she would like a phone call when her cards or gifts arrive, so she can “hear his enjoyment over the phone even if they arrive early.” I don’t think my son did anything wrong. When a gift arrives in advance of an occasion, must it be opened imme-diately? Or can it wait for the actual birthday or Christmas? Sometimes he likes to open one present at a time, write a thank-you note, then open the next, stretching out his gift-opening over a few days. Is this a social no-no? — WONDERING DEAR WONDERING: Gifts are usually opened the day of the occasion. When the occasion is a birthday, the usual expec-tation is that the presents will be opened at the party. At that time a verbal thank-you is offered. A thank-you note should be written a very short time later. Your mother-in-law may have called for reassurance that her gift had arrived. She should not have revealed what it was. You did nothing wrong. The mistake was hers. DEAR ABBY: My good friend “Derek” is in his 30s and just started his first seri-ous relationship. He told me after a week together that she was “the one” and that he loved her. I told him I was happy for him and sug-gested he take things slow so they could really get to know each other. I had a party two nights ago where he introduced his new girlfriend. They spent most of the time making out like teenagers in front of everyone. Some guests were so uncomfort-able they left early. I haven’t seen Derek since, and I’m worried not only that he’s moving too fast to make up for lost time, but that he’s doing it with someone who also is oblivious to how socially unacceptable their behav-ior was. I’m not sure how to express my concerns to my friend without hurting him. — CONCERNED DEAR CONCERNED: It would not be rude or hurtful for you to mention to Derek that you think the girl is “great” — but the show they put on at your party made some of your other guests so uncomfortable they left early. Let’s hope the “hint” is sufficient. DEAR ABBY: My 10year-old daughter told a friend she would go to a concert with her a few months ago. Since then, my daughter decided to end the friendship because the girl was clingy, dra-matic and controlling. Do I insist my daughter go to the concert as she said she would, or let her off the hook? The friend seems to be hoping she will go so they can renew the friendship, but my daughter has no plans to do it. Please help! -MANAGING DISCORD DEAR MOM: If the girl is expecting your daughter to go to the concert with her, your daughter should tell her she does NOT plan to attend so the girl can invite someone else. Do not insist that your daughter associate with anyone who makes her feel uncomfort-able. Her reason for pulling back from that relationship showed good judgment. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Speak passionately but be prepared to encoun-ter other points of view. Sticking to your values will not be difficult, but accept-ing someone else’s is not so easy. Wager the pros and cons and decide if you want to make allowances or not. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A little extra work will go a long way. Don’t hesitate to make financial adjust-ments in order to improve your cash flow. Consider your options and whether or not you should pursue new avenues. Romance is on the rise. ++++GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Watch your spending habits. It’s easy to get caught up in the festive spirit of giving. A positive change in your relationships with others will take place if you take the time to listen and discuss interests and future plans. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Make personal changes that will help you gain greater respect from your peers. Re-evaluate your posi-tion and your direction. It’s up to you to do what’s right. Don’t let emotions swell and cause problems. Make love, not war, and you’ll avoid duress. +++LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Make an effort to get out and meet some new friends. Networking will lead to intellectual banter as well as bright prospects for the future. You’ll feel inspired about taking on a new direc-tion. Take care of unfinished business and make way for new endeavors. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Trouble at home will mount if someone isn’t being honest. Settle any turmoil quickly before too much has been said or done to reverse the problem. Develop a creative skill you enjoy doing. Pick up infor-mation regarding educa-tional pursuits. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Travel, communicate and get together with old friends. Discuss your thoughts and plans for the future with someone you’ve always shared an interest with. Don’t ask questions unless you are prepared to hear the truth and deal with the outcome. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Look over personal paperwork and update whatever needs adjusting. Make alterations to your liv-ing space to accommodate guests or projects you want to start. Check your motives before you do something that may cause a backlash. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Decorate, make a move or change your environment to suit your mood and your future prospects. Spend time with someone you love discuss-ing personal plans. Do whatever it takes to set an example that will lead to advancement. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A friend or relative is likely to cause a problem. Don’t let him or her meddle in your affairs. An impulsive move will make you look bad or cause a dispute. Step back and consider the consequences before you overreact. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Spend time shopping or picking up items that you can use for a creative pursuit. Send out resumes or answer ads that can lead to a higher income. A younger person in your life will have an impact on a decision you make. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Don’t let emotions take over. Stick to your game plan and move toward your goal. Unfinished busi-ness will be what leads to added stress. Be industri-ous, and you’ll be able to enjoy down time when you are finished. ++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Florida State (13-0) vs. Auburn (12-1), 8:30 p.m. (ESPN) Associated Press With Nick Saban out, here are six possibilities for the Texas job. Art Briles, Baylor. Hiring the Baylor coach might seem like slumming it for some Texas fans, but any coach who can turn Baylor into Big 12 champi ons deserves a look. Hes 36-15 in the last four sea sons at the one-time cellar dweller. The 58-year Texan and longtime high school coach in the Lone Star state doesnt have the most cap tivating personality, but his offense is a thrill-a-minute. He recently signed a 10year contract extension for about $4 million annually. Jimbo Fisher, Florida State. The 48-year-old for mer Nick Saban assistant has turned Florida State back into a national pow erhouse in four seasons since taking over for Bobby Bowden. Hes 44-10 in his first head coaching job, and has set up the Seminoles to be a force for the future. He reportedly agreed to a new five-year contract last week that will push h is salary to $4 million per season. James Franklin, Vanderbilt. The 41-yearold has star quality. Young. Handsome. Charismatic. And hes 23-14 at Vanderbilt, which is almost unthink able. He signed what the school called a long-term contract after last season. Mike Gundy, Oklahoma State. The quarterback has been coaching his alma since 2005. He is 77-37, helping the Cowboys go from afterthought to peren nial Big 12 contender. He is in the second year of an eight-year contract worth $3.79 million annualy Jim Harbaugh, San Francisco 49ers. Ask him about his interest in the Texas job at your own risk. It took him two years to take the 49ers to a Super Bowl after arriving from Stanford, where he turned the forlorn program into one of the countrys best. Jim Mora, UCLA. The former NFL coach had some doubters when he entered the college game last year. Not anymore. He is high energy and has proved capable of landing elite recruits. He is 18-8 overall and 12-6 in the Pac12. He recently agreed to a six-year contract extension. Others include Stanfords David Shaw, Penn States Bill OBrien and Clemsons Dabo Swinney. Possibilities for coaching Texas FILE Florida States Jimbo Fisher has been mentioned for the head coaching job at Texas. League reports Lake City Bowl league results: HIT & MISS Team standings: 1.
