Council approves

Citywill pay
$33,589 for water

By LINDA YOUNG
lyoung@iakecityreporter.com
SIn its last meeting of the
year, the Lake City City
Council handled routine busi-
ness al 'ng with grappling with
the issue of when it should
meet .
Council had only one ordi-
nance on the agenda. It was to
approve the Florida
Retirement System for general
employees and council adopt-
ed it. Council also voted on
three resolutions including


a walk-on resolution to include
elected officers in the Florida
Retirement System. That reso-
lution and one to renew the
annual mutual aid agreement
between the Lake City Police
Department and neighboring
law enforcement agencies
passed without discussion.
But a resolution to spend
$33,589 to have two polyester
curtains installed in water stor-
age tanks on the west side of
the city did provoke feedback.
"Water comes in (the tank)," ^
said Lake City City Manager
Joe Cone. "It was coming in
and going right out the infill

stores said sales were up
slightly from last year.
"It's been really busy," Goody's
assistant manager Gwen
DiGiammarino said. "It kind of slacked
off a little bit during the rain, but for the
most part, people were still out."
Goody's sold about $52,000 worth of
merchandise Saturday, which was
about $2,000 more than it sold on the
same day last year. DiGiammarino
expects this week to be even busier

"A lot of people probably did like I
did and paid their bills at the first of the
month," DiGiammarino said. "Now
their later checks are coming in and
they're doing Christmas shopping. I
know that's what I'll be doing
Thursday."
Goody's small, colorful pillows were
hot items last Christmas season and at
$4.99, they still are popular this year.
"The cushy pillows are going like
wildfire," DiGiammarino said. "Last
year, during the hurricanes, we sold a
lot of them with people traveling and
stuff. It's, I guess, just a quick stocking
stuffer or something to accent your
room."
Shoppers should hurry if they want
to buy a winter coat for a lady on their

Lowe's Home Improvement typically
is a popular store to buy Christmas

exception. The store is selling a lot of

Lowe's operations manager Dave
Groh said the rain put a slight damper
on business this weekend, but the store
still made out well.
'The weather didn't help much,"
Groh said. "We were still a little busier
than last year."
Lowe's sales are up from last holiday
season in Lake City. Groh said Monday
was busier than normal, probably with
shoppers who didn't venture out during
the wet weekend.
Office Max also had a "steady"

Columbia High's career specialist retires


BRIEFS


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.comrn

For the past 29 years, Ann
Foster has dedicated her
efforts as an educator to
making sure children had
skills for jobs and didn't
drop-out of school.
Today it's her turn to
drop-out.
Foster, who has been an
occupational specialist at
Columbia High School is
spending her last day at work
as her retirement becomes
official this afternoon.
Foster started as a student
worker while she was in high
school as an office helper in
1967, then she became a
teacher's aide, secretary to the
principal and later she became
an occupational specialist
Foster has been an educator
for 35 years and has been an
occupational specialist for
29 years.
"I was attracted to the
position because you get to
work with all the students,
rather than just one segment of
students," she said. "This way I
really get to work with
everyone."
As an occupational special-
ist, Foster's job duties included
being responsible for the
school's career education
program, coordinator of the

Columbia High School
occupational specialist, Ann
Foster, works with Laneasha
Harris Monday in the school
career office. Foster will retire
today after working at the
school for 35 years.
school's drop-out prevention
program and in charge of the
executive internship program
where students shadow
professionals at work.
"I think I'll miss my students
that were categorized as at-risk
the most the students that I
worked with in the drop-out
prevention," she said. "I'll miss
them the most because they
were the biggest challenge."
Foster said she has worked
with thousands of students as
the Columbia High School
occupational specialist and
the drop-out prevention
coordinator.


Columbia High School
principal, Joann Chamberlin,
said the school will miss Foster
and her efforts to improve the
students.
"Mrs. Foster has been a
teacher/occupational special-
ist for many years and has
always been the strongest of
advocates for our young
people," Chamberlin said.
"With that, she has also been
instrumental in helping
Columbia High School to
encourage our graduation rate
and the opportunity of
thousands of dollar in scholar-
ships. We will miss Mrs. Foster
each and every day."
Norma Smith, has know
Foster since 1967 and worked
with her since 1973.
"Ann is a kind and caring
about the students and seeing
that they meet their needs and
goals and she brings in schol-
arships. in the thousands,"
Smith, said. "She's probably
brought in $1.5 million in
scholarships to our students
last year alone. She works hard
to make sure our. students
receive all the scholarships
they are eligible for."
, Smith said she will miss
working with Foster as a
professional and a friend.
"No one will ever exceed the
things she's done for Columbia
High School students over the


years," she said. "We've been
friends for a long time. We're
closer than most sisters and
we're not sisters."
Foster said in her retirement
she plans to spend lots of time
with her husband, Bill, who
retired in April, after working
with the U.S. Forest Service
for 35 years.
"When I would be off during
the summer, he was always out
west fighting wild fires, so we
never really got to take
vacations or do anything like
that together," she said. "So,
for the first time, we'll be able
to travel together and do
things together at the same
time that we'll both be off."
Foster and other members
of the school's staff who will be
retiring will be recognized at
the end of the school year, but
she has already received
several retirement gifts from
students and faculty
members.
"I've been getting things all
day," she said Monday after-
noon. "The kids have been
coming by bringing me things
and I asked them not to do
that ... but they did anyway."


Deputy injured
in Sunday wreck
LIVE OAK A Suwannee
County Sheriff's Deputy was
struck by a SUV in Suwannee
County Sunday afternoon.
Deputy Thomas K Putnel,
37, of Live Oak, had stopped
his patrol car on U.S. 129 at
approximately 5:55 p.m. to
remove some debris from the
northbound lane of the road.
Solomon K Suggs, 45, of
Branford, was driving
northbound on U.S. 129 and
failed to see Putnel in the
road, striking him with the
front left side of his 2004
Honda SUV.
Putnel was transported to
Lake City Medical Center by
Suwannee County EMS and
was later taken to Shands at
the University of Florida in
Gainesville. Reports indicate
Putnel possibly suffered a
broken hip.
According to reports, there
was no lighting in the area of
the crash, and Putnel was not
carrying a flashlight or
wearing a reflective vest over

Snow day

good for

downtown

t didn't last long, but while it was
available, the trucked-in snow
dazzled the kids who tolerated the
weather to play in it.
Amid the drizzling rain, children and
adults visited the downtown area in
bustling numbers Saturday for Lake
City's snow day. The Downtown Action
Corporation spent approximately $4,000
for what was scheduled to be 40 tons of
man-made snow from a Gainesville ice
company.
In a blocked off area of downtown,
children and adults got the chance -
albeit briefly to play in what soon
became white slush. It was a great
effort and treat for many youngsters in
North Florida.
The event also featured a petting zoo,
kiddie rides and other activities to keep
the children occupied and draw a nice
crowd to the downtown area on a prime
shopping day.
Despite the rain, it was a nice day
capped by a nice community effort to
bring something special to Columbia
County.

County Fair receives


international award


By LINDSAY DOWNEY
Idowney@lakecityreporter.com

The Columbia County Fair
recently won a second place
Agricultural Award of
Excellence from the
International Association of
Fairs and Expositions.
The fair won the award for
its 10th annual T-shirt
contest.
"We were very, very excit-
ed," Columbia County Fair
compost manager Linda
Dowling said.
Fourteen local business
sponsors pay to have about
300 T-shirts made, which fea-
ture a photo of the fair's first-
place livestock winner on the


front and the names of the
contest sponsors on the
back.
"It (the T-shirts) goes to all
the kids and they wear them
the week of the fair,"
Dowling said.
A fair or expo can enter
any of the 14 Agriculture
Award categories, which are
divided into five divisions.
The awards are sponsored
by John Deere.
The Columbia County
Faiir's second-place award
was presented at the
Agricultural Awards
Breakfast during the 115th
annual IAFE Convention in
Las Vegas. The IAFE is a vol-
untary, non-profit


corporation that represents
more than 1,400 fairs around
the world.
Dowling said the T-shirt
contest is something unique
to the Columbia County Fair.
"It's not something that all
fairs do," she said. "It just
makes our overall fair better. It
brings fun for the community."
The fair has won awards in
the past, but this was the first
time its T-shirt contest was
recognized.
The second and third place
winners of the contest won
gift certificates and tote
bags. First-place winner
Jordan Spires, who was fea-
tured on the T-shirts, could
not be reached at press time.


Columbia continues to mull flow

control ordinance amendment


White Springs to discuss

firefighting tuition agreement


By LINDA YOUNG
lyoung@lakecityreporter.comrn

WHITE SPRINGS The
Town Council of White
Springs will ring out the year
with a full agenda of old and
new business at its last meet-
ing at 7 p.m. today.
Several items of old and
new business- address
emergency situations.
That includes an item of
new business that is a plan to
request money from the state
legislature again this year to
fund a 7,000-square-foot
storm shelter. White Springs
Town ;Manager Robert
Townsend said the town cur-
rently has no hurricane
shelter for residents.
If a hurricane struck the
town while most of the coun-
cil was unavailable to meet
and declare a state of emer-
gency, an item of old busi-
ness addresses the need to
allow an individual to act in


the face of disaster.
Among the draft items
under consideration is one
that would designate individ-
uals who could declare a
state of emergency in case
the full council was not avail-
able. Under the town's char-
ter, a state of emergency only
can be declared by the Town
Council said Joe Subic,
White Springs police chief.
"Because of disasters -
hurricanes or anything else
- it was recommended you
have some kind of contin-
gency plan if not all the coun-
cil is available, so you can
declare a state of emergency
Subi said."
Another draft resolution
explores the possibility of
user fees for public safety
services, with fees billed to
insurance companies,
Townsend said.
"It gets rather expensive
when you take up men,
money and equipment .for


hours. One (truck rollover)
took two days to clean up,"
Townsend said.
Other old business
includes an agreement for
firefighters that the town
would pay to send for fire-
fighter class-one certifica-
tion.
The town is considering a
fire department tuition agree-
ment for the $2,000 it costs to
send some of its volunteer fire-
fighters to school to earn class-
one designation. Since certifi-
cation qualifies a firefighter to
work at any fire department in
the state, the town is consider-
ing an agreement requiring an
individual to continue as a vol-
unteer firefighter in White
Springs for two years in
exchange for the training,
Townsend said.
"We hope to get three of our
volunteers certified to meet
state standards and that is a
big plus for a volunteer fire
department," Townsend said.

Columbia County officials
continue to look at making
modifications and amendments
to the county flow control
ordinance.
Last week county commis-
sioners decided to table their
final decision on amending the
county flow ordinance, which
addresses toie disposal of septic
waste generated in the county,
after Mark Lander, Columbia
County Environmental Health,
Director, explained state regu-
lations would then become law
and may not represent the
county's best interest.
"I would like the county to
look at the state regulations for
the land application of treated
septage, the combination of
the solids, semi-solids and liq-
uids in the septic," he said. "We
want to make sure the state
regulations adequately
address all of our county
concerns."
Lander said if and when the
flow control ordinance' is gune,
it i.will. be the county


environmental health depart-
ment's responsibility to moni-
tor and regulate sludge dispos-
al sites for septic tanks in
Columbia County.
He said several counties
allow the land application
method, but in 1991, a county
ordinance was created where
treated sewage generated in
the county had to be disposed
of at the city sewage treatment
plant.
"After 1991, all sewage taken
from septic tanks was required
to be disposed of at the city
sewage treatment facility,"
Lander said. "Once the ordi-
nance is amended, we will be
left with the state code, and we
could go back to the land
application of treated sewage."
County officials are evaluat-
ing the ordinance because of.
planned changes at the city
sewage facility.
The city has informed con-
tractors that it will increase the
cost of dumping at the sewage
treatment plant from 4 cents
per-gallon to 12.7 cents
per-gaillon.
"With our current county


ordinance, this is what is
required for anybody who
pumps out materials from
septic systems within our coun-
ty," Lander said, as he noted
the city will not charge the
higher rate for six months
before going to its new price
schedule. "We're trying to have
something in place before city
fees become effective. That
way, we'll have some other
alternatives."
Lander said with the city
going up in fees and the county
talking of removing the flow
control ordinance, the county
needs to address its needs
internally.
"One reason we are asking
for them to delay removing
flow control from the ordi-
nance is that the state land
application code for sewage is
written for the entire state," he
said. "We may have areas in
our county that are not ade-
quately addressed by this state
code and we want to ensure
public health and environmen-
tal protection before we allow
larid-spreading (of sewage) to
occur."


COUNCIL: Votes not to pay Thigpen

and it was causing
contamination problems and
consequently we had to issue
all those notices. So this will
stop that, it will force the water
to circulate."
Council members discussed
whether the problem could
have been anticipated and in


the end approved the purchase.
In other business, the coun-
cil discussed whether to pay
Jacksonville-based Thigpen
Heating and Cooling for instal-
lation of the heating and cool-
ing system at the Public Safety
Building that has never worked
properly.


SHOP: People out in force


Continued From Page 1A
evenings and on the weekends
during December, but this
year Office Max is seeing an
increased number of weekday
customers.
'The weekdays are actually
busier for us (than the week-
ends)," manager Denise
Deckard said, adding that the
store sees a lot of traffic from
about 2 p.m. until close.
"Everyone's out shopping in
full force."
And because electronic items
are so popular this holiday sea-
son, Office Max is selling out of
some digital cameras and print-
er and camera bundles.
Shoppers are buying whatever
tech gadgets they can get their
hands on, Deckard said.
"Now it's to the point, 'just
give me whatever you have,'"
she said.
Belk also has sold a lot of
electronics.
"We've run low on some elec-
tronic items but they've done
well replenishing us," store
manager Tina Ammons said.
"We've sold a lot of home prod-
ucts, home decor. We're trend-
ing well with last year."
Belk had extended store
hours through the weekend,
which Ammons said helped
sales.
"We had a good Sunday," she
said, adding that Belk also will
be open extra hours this week.
J.C. Penney sales support
manager Kimberly Hermanson
said her store's sales are up for
the weekend and for the month
of December.


"We have a very busy
Christmas Eve, but as far as the
weekend goes, this last' one
(was the busiest)," she said.
J.C. Penney's bath and body
gift sets are big sellers this year,
along with games, such as pin
ball machines and table-top soc-
cer, Hermanson said.
Lake Butler resident Connie
Davis, 55, always does her
Christmas shopping in Lake
City. She accompanied her
friend to J.C. Penney on
Monday, but finished her
Christmas 'shopping Saturday.
Davis said store lines are
always long this time of the
year.
"Even with it wet and raining
Saturday, it has been too busy,"
she said.


Council voted not to pay until
after Thigpen had the heating
and cooling system working
properly.

HOT TOPIC
Recent research indicates that
parents underestimate their toddler's
ability to reach for pots on
stovetops. As a result, during a
recent six-year period, children aged
fears and younger suffered more
than 17,000 burns that necessitated
emergency room treatment. Half of
these burns occurred when children
pulled pots down from elevated
surfaces. Studies conducted in the
Netherlands, United Kingdom, and
the U.S.A. suggest that two-year-
olds are able to grip objects placed
41-42 inches off the ground. Since
stoves typically measure 36 inches
from the ground, pots on the front
burner are often within reach of I
and 2 year olds. With this in mind,
parents are advised to cook on back
burners and to turn pot handles
toward the back.

Lake City, Richardson Middle Schools battle on the court


Falcons stay perfect;
Lady Wolves take down
Lake City Middle girls.
By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter.com
A double dip of basketball resulted
in a split decision for the Lake City
Middle School and Richardson Middle
School teams on Monday.
The LCMS boys entered their game
against RMS undefeated, and they
stayed that way with a 52-27 victory.
But the Lady Falcons were over-
whelmed by the Lady Wolves in the
early game, 46-22. .
Lake City Middle's boys team won
on the strength of a stifling defense
and an up-tempo offense that scored
29 second-half points to improve to 9-0


on the season.
"We're a running team and we per-
formed good," LCMS coach William
Highland said. "Everything on both
ends was good. You can't have it much
better than that."
Jordan Kirby and Dexter Dye led
this run-and-gun mentality with 12 and
11 points, respectively. Marquis
Morgan pumped in nine, Ian Benjamin
scored eight, Chris Dickey added six,
Kellan Graham scored three,
Jermaine Johnson scored two and
Tyler Johns scored one.
For Richardson, Tiger Powell led
with 11, Jordan Talley and Tad
Anderson scored five each, and Ben
Bell, Seth Peterson 'and Alex Jones
each added two.
The game also settled a score that
has haunted Highland, as the Wolves
have kept LCMS from winning the


conference championship the last
three years.
But, as he put it after Monday's
game, "Right now, nobody's standing
in our way."
In their previous game against Lake
Asbury Middle on Dec. 15, the
Falcons ran to a 64-44 victory.
Morgan scored 28, Dye added 13,
Kirby eight, Benjamin six, Johns, four,
Peyton Cleveland and Dickey scored two
each and Quantez Wilson scored one.
In the girls game, point guard
Sharmayne Edwards controlled the
tempo with 21 points, and Katrina
Goodbread added 11, Shakneaia
Fulton scored 10 and Da'Brea Hill
pumped in five points.
'This is the first year that I've got
five or six girls who can really play
basketball," Lady Wolves coach Sue
Ebert said. "I've got a point guard who


is unbelievable."
Edwards said there was a lot of hype
before the game, and she was happy.
with the team effort.
"I felt good, we had everybody
working together," she said.
The Lady Wolves improved to 6-1,
with their only loss being a four-point
decision against Fernandina Beach.
Vikie Hill led LCMS with 10 points,
Shaniqua Henry added nine, and
Shaiwong Whittaker scored three.
In its previous two games,
Richardson defeated Baker County
Middle 32-15 and Callahan Middle
28-18. Edwards scored 18 against
Baker and 15 against Callahan, and
Goodbread added 10 against Callahan
and six against Baker. Elisea Ray
scored two against Baker and Jalisa
Bradley added three. Briya McGuire
scored two against Callahan.

By AMANDA WILLIAMSON awilliam]son@lakecityreporter.com UNION COUNTY Over and over again, Heather and Don Neilson think about how their animals must have felt as a fire spread throughout their home last week. Now, theyve decided despite the holiday season the loss of their pets and their home is the hardest battle theyve ever had to endure. Heather Neilson learned from a friend shortly after 11 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 16, that her house was on fire. She quickly left her job in Lake City at Pizza Boy to drive the approximately 30 min utes to her home in Providence. When she arrived, Columbia County Fire Department had already responded. Soon after, Union County Fire Department pulled in to help combat the blaze. My whole yard was full of fire trucks, Heather Neilson said. I drove into my yard and said, My animals are in there. Did you get my animals out? But it was too late. The fire spread from her bedroom through the roof, Fire claims home, pets Woman was at work in Lake City when she learned her Union County home was ablaze. hen eight-year-old Virginia OHanlon asked the editor of the New York Sun whether Santa Claus really existed, the response, published Sept. 21, 1897, became historys most reprinted newspaper editorial, appearing in dozens of languages worldwide. We are pleased to present it here for a new generation of readers. W Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be mens or childrens, are little. In this great universe of ours man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge. Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and gen erosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus. It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The eter nal light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished. Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies! You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas Eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if they did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but thats no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world. You may tear apart the babys rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding. No Santa Claus! Thank God! he lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay, ten times ten thousand years from now, he will con tinue to make glad the heart of childhood. Yes, Virginia, Sign-up extended one day By CARLA K. JOHNSON AP Medical Writer CHICAGO Anticipating heavy traffic on the govern ments health care website, the Obama administration extend ed Mondays deadline for sign ing up for insurance by a day, giving Americans in 36 states more time to select a plan. It was the latest in a series of pushed-back deadlines and delays that have marked the rollout of the health care law. But federal officials urged buyers not to procrastinate. You should not wait until tomorrow. If you are aiming to get coverage Jan. 1, you should try to sign up today, said Julie Bataille, a spokeswoman for the federal agency in charge of the overhaul. Bataille said the grace period which runs through Tuesday was being offered to accom modate people from different time zones and to allow for any technical problems that might result from a last-minute rush of applicants. The HealthCare.gov site had a disastrous, glitch-prone debut in October but has gone through extensive improve ments to make it more reliable and increase its capacity, and the administration said the sys tem was running well Monday. By the afternoon, the site had received a record 850,000 visits, five times the number logged by the same time last Monday, the administration said. Bataille said the system was handling the volume with error rates of less than 1 in 200 and response times of less than one second. The Obama administration is hoping for a surge of yearend enrollments to show that the technical problems were merely a temporary setback. That would also go a long way toward easing concerns that insurance companies wont AFFORDABLE CARE ACT Jewelry is a good last-minute gift because its small, its easy to handle.

PETERSBURG — A small dog that wandered away from its owner in South Florida five years ago is finally back home. Jessica Namath, the daughter of former New York Jets football star Joe Namath, had her Shih Tzu mix named Tula with her in a Jupiter backyard five years ago. The dog wandered into the front yard, and when Namath went to look for it, the dog was gone. She frantically searched for Tula, posting a $2,000 reward, calling animal con-trol, consulting psychics and sending friends to search nearby canals in kay-aks. She never found Tula. Namath tells the Tampa Bay Times that she was shocked to get a phone call Wednesday about the missing dog. The caller was Michael Cecere of St. Petersburg, who found had found the dog in front of his car as he was running errands. He first knocked on neighborhood doors trying to find the owner and then took the dog to an animal hospital, where a tracking chip was found in the dog. Cecere tracked down a phone number for Namath through Facebook. “I could hear her jaw drop over the phone,” said Cecere. Namath and Tula were reunited Thursday. A St. Petersburg woman tells the Tampa Bay Times that she found the bedrag-gled dog four years ago in West Palm Beach. The dog had missing teeth and sores and was losing hair in chunks. “We didn’t think she had a chip in her because of the condition she was in,” Yanelys Miranda said. She took in the dog, and it moved with the family to St. Petersburg two years ago. Miranda said the dog recently slipped away from their home, possibly after her children left a gate open. She posted an ad about the dog on Craigslist, and she eventually learned that she had Namath’s dog. “It’s a huge loss for us,” Miranda said. “But what can we do?”10 foster kids get forever families PANAMA CITY — It will be a special holiday season for 10 foster care children in Florida’s Panhandle. During a ceremony at the Juvenile Justice Courthouse in Panama City on Friday, the children were officially adopted by their forever families. The News Herald of Panama City reports adop-tions took place as part of the Life Management Center’s Home for the Holidays adoption event. The Life Management Center is a local partner of the Department of Children and Families and Big Bend Community Based Care. It offers fam-ily counseling and adoptions in several north Florida counties. The agency says there are currently 31 children awaiting adoption in north Florida.14+ pound baby born at Shands GAINESVILLE — The third baby may very well be the last for a north Florida couple. Son Isaiah Lawrence Johnson was born Friday at Gainesville’s UF Shands Hospital, weighing in at a whopping 14 pounds 7.6 ounces. He was 22 inches long. Mother Nicia McNelley told area newspapers it seemed like it “took for-ever to get him out.” The baby was born by cesarean section, seven days before his due date. The mother and baby are expected to leave the hos-pital Monday, just in time for Christmas. McNelley and Quinta Johnson have two other children, but Isiah was their largest baby by far. Wade enlisted kids’ help in proposal MIAMI F ittingly, Dwyane Wade asking Gabrielle Union to marry him was a family affair. When the Miami Heat star proposed to the actress on Saturday afternoon, inside the home that the couple is building, his nephew and two sons unfurled signs asking Union to marry them. Bewildered, she turned to Wade and saw him on bended knee. An 8-carat diamond sealed the deal. Wade tells The Associated Press that the wedding is still not sched-uled, but will happen this summer, probably in September. He says his oldest son and nephew knew about the plan for some time, and that he’s thrilled he was able to pull off the surprise.2 Pussy Riot members released from prison KRASNOYARSK — The last two imprisoned members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot walked free Monday, criticizing the amnesty measure that released them as a publicity stunt, with one calling for a boycott of the Winter Olympics to protest Russia’s human rights record. Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova were granted amnes-ty last week in a move largely viewed as the Kremlin’s attempt to soothe criticism of Russia’s human rights record before the Sochi Games in February. “I’m calling for a boycott of the Olympic Games,” Tolokonnikova said. “What is happening today — releasing people just a few months before their term expires — is a cos-metic measure.” The amnesty — part of a wide measure passed last week by the parliament — and President Vladimir Putin’s pardoning last week of onetime oil tycoon and political rival Mikhail Khodorkovsky freed some of the most prominent convicts who were sentenced in politically-tainted cases.Lawrence beats Cyrus, Netflix for top entertainer LOS ANGELES — The battle for AP entertainer of the year came down to the Girl on Fire and the Queen of Twerk. Jennifer Lawrence edged out Miley Cyrus by one vote in The Associated Press’ annual survey of its newspaper and broadcast members and sub-scribers for Entertainer of the Year. There were 70 ballots submitted by U.S. editors and news directors. Voters were asked to consider who had the most influence on entertain-ment and culture in 2013. Lawrence won 15 votes. Cyrus had 14. Netflix was a close third, earning 13 votes for altering the TV landscape with its on-demand format and hit original series. But Lawrence — who started the year with an Academy Award for best actress, fueled a box-office fran-chise as “The Hunger Games” hero-ine Katniss Everdeen, and wrapped 2013 with a critically acclaimed performance in “American Hustle” that just earned Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nomina-tions — charmed fans everywhere with her candid sincerity.

I n addition to turning-point years such as 1607, 1776 and 1969 (first person to walk on the moon – have you forgot-ten already?), future schoolchildren might have to memorize 2013, the year that astronomers established with reasonable cer-tainty that there could be as many as 40 billion habitable planets about the size of Earth in our gal-axy. That significantly improved the odds there is life of some kind out there somewhere. According to calculations by Berkeley astrono-mer Erik Petigura, one out of five sunlike stars has a planet the size of Earth or close to it orbiting in what scientists have come to call the Goldilocks zone not too hot, not too cold and compatible with liquid water. “It seems that the universe produces plentiful real estate for life that somehow resembles life on Earth,” Petigura told The New York Times. For centuries, astronomers assumed our solar system and its planets, not to mention ourselves, were unique in the universe. Then, in 1992, the first planet outside our solar system was discovered. Since then, more than 1,000 exoplanets have been discovered and 3,500 candidate planets have been identi-fied. The work of identifying and confirming planets limped to a near-halt when the Kepler space telescope malfunctioned after four years, but not before sending back so much data that it will take another year to sort through. To date, astronomers have discovered planets that are about the size of Earth, are rocky instead of being composed of ice or gas and have atmospheres containing water basically, all the ingredients for life. The possibility was intriguing enough to prompt the House Science Committee to conduct hearings on life on other planets. “The chance that there’s a planet like Earth out there with life on it is very high,” MIT professor Sara Seager told the committee. Democrats ridiculed the GOP majority on the committee for try-ing to hunt up space aliens, but this is important science. “The question is: Is there life near here, in our neighborhood of stars?” Seager asked. “We think the chances are good.” Unfortunately, many of the answers will have to wait until 2018, when the next-generation James Webb Space Telescope is launched. But the question of other Earths and other life forms is no longer a matter of if but when, and the quest picked up new urgency this year. 2013. Remember that year, kid.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Giving back without hesitation Obama needs to rein in NSAS ometimes I think we do the terrorist’s job for them. The response to 9/11, while understandably flam-boyant, set off a spasm of overreaction that more than a decade later is still threatening all the things we hold so dear. Chief among these, of course, is our right to privacy especially from the prying eyes of our government without probable cause. When that is eroded, the liberty we love is not only damaged but also is our way of life. There is just no getting around it. The National Security Agency – an arm of the military – has, as is the historic pattern of unsu-pervised bureaucracy, insinuated itself into our democratic fabric so thoroughly that nothing short of a major overhaul can put it right. Whether President Obama is will-ing to reform this scary institution won’t be clear until he returns from his family’s Christmas vacation in Hawaii. Obama plans to spend that time contemplating the results of a report by a blue ribbon commission of security experts he appointed shortly after the enormous extent of NSA’s spying became public, causing an international sensation that continues unabated. The report made significant recommendations for reforming both the oversight and activities of this super secret agency. The main ingredient missing in the current policy is diligent over-sight. It is woefully insufficient both in the Congress and in the judicial safeguard designed to prevent the kind of abuses revealed by Edward Snowden, the contract employee now hanging out in Russia. Both houses of Congress have intel-ligence committees charged with making certain the $50 billion being spent each year on tracking our enemies – and, it seems, also our friends – is in keeping with the nation’s laws and principles. But there is growing evidence that in the wake of 9/11, congressional overseers ignored the dangers. Then of course there is the FISA court established to certify that warrants sought are backed up with legitimate need. But this is a one-sided affair in which the gov-ernment gets what it wants without much challenge. Otherwise how would any federal judge serving in that post permit such extensive fishing in the public communication pond even if NSA contends that it merely registers who calls whom without tapping into their conversa-tions? By the way, that’s a claim no one can verify. No one in this volatile age believes we should return to the days when gentlemen didn’t read other gentlemen’s mail. Intelligence gathering is a vital tool for preserving our democracy, but only if those using that tool don’t convince themselves about the end justifying the means and meth-ods. In the current case, NSA’s claims of using means that have prevented another end like 9/11 are not only exaggerated but hard to support at all, according to the presidential panel’s report. Then there is Snowden. Is he a legitimate whistleblower or a traitor as some would paint him? There is little doubt in my mind had he not become the bearer of bad tidings, we might have gone blissfully along believing we were immune from the increasing big brother aspects of our society; that we would have felt secure from the Orwellian predictions that have come true under totalitarianism elsewhere. There are serious questions about whether his motives were for his own self-aggrandizement or a legiti-mate concern for his country or a sinister attempt to harm it. We may never know. What about the publications that disseminated so dramatically the original startling information – namely the Guardian of England and the Washington Post? Did they properly use the watchdog function newspapers traditionally follow to keep governments honest or were they the purveyors of irresponsible sensationalism as critics contend? The editor of the Guardian, Alan Rusbridger, I know well. He has been a longtime defender of ethical journalistic principles. The same holds true for the Washington Post’s editors. I might criticize both for other reasons but not in this case. Meanwhile, Barack Obama must now make one of the thorni-est decisions he is likely to face in the rest of his term – whether or not to accept the fact that an enormously important U.S. agen-cy has gone way too far or just ignore the findings of his own panel which happens more often than not with similar presidential commissions. W ithout question, Lake City and Columbia County showed itself proud this Christmas season. Ours is a community that freely gives back to organizations and those who are less fortunate. Celebrate this. Not every community has the tight-knit bond that allows for such unity when there is a goal to be met for the good of the whole. Think about what our community has quietly accomplished during the past few weeks. Everyone knows of some commu-nity effort — either through a church or a civic club or charitable organization — that has completed a food or toy drive or done something positive to help another. From bell ringing, to dropping change in a kettle, to donating food or unwrapped toys or volunteering time to help oth-ers, thousands in our community this Christmas season have paused their own routines to give back. Our community pulls together like no other. People make the difference when assistance is needed and our residents in Columbia County are unmatched at meet-ing the needs of those less fortunate. You answered the call. Truly, it is better to give than to receive. We’ve all been touched by the blessing. From all of us at the Lake City Reporter, Merry Christmas!

They visited Norway, Germany, Italy, Mexico, and China. While studying each country, the students learned about that country’s Christmas customs, made a Christmas craft and received a snack commonly eaten in that country. Each student had their own ‘backpack’ that was used to hold all of their treasures from their trip. They also had their passports stamped as they traveled from country to country. The students and the teachers had so much fun with this activity! We want to thank our volunteers who made the students’ backpacks. They were a tremendous help, and we appre-ciate all they did to make our “World Journey” a success!COURTESYEastside Elementary students pictured are Hannah St aley, Vada Spurlock and Alayna Rodriguez.

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comQ First in a series to highlight team and individual excellence in 2013 It was a basketball bonanza at Fort White High last season. Both the girls and boys teams made the state play-offs for the first time. Isiah Phillips is coach of the boys and DeShay Harris is coach of the girls. At Columbia High the Tigers made a second straight trip to the play-offs under coach Horace Jefferson. Fort White’s boys blasted out of the gate to a 10-0 start and ended up as the No. 1 seed in the district tournament with a record of 8-2. Playing at home, the Indians beat Santa Fe in the district semifinal to punch a ticket to the playoffs. Fort White ended up as district runner-up after an overtime loss to Williston High. Fort White had to hit the road to play Mount Dora High, a team that had plen-ty of playoff experience with seven trips in the last eight years. The Indians fell behind by 17 points at halftime, then rallied to pull out a 63-62 win. The Indians had to face Williston in the second round — the fourth meet-ing of the season for the teams — and it was hosted by the Red Devils. Williston won by four points. The Lady Indians, not far removed from consecutive winless seasons, began the 2012-13 season 4-5, but 0-4 in district play. Fort White went on a spree and earned the No. 3 seed for the district tourna-ment. A first-ever win over Santa Fe High nailed down the No. 3 spot. In the tournament the Lady Indians beat Interlachen High to bring on a semifinal showdown with Santa Fe. Fort White came out on top to get into the playoffs. Bradford High won the district final. Fort White lost in the opening round at Trinity Catholic High, which made the third round of the playoffs. Columbia had the No. 2 seed for its district tourna-ment and beat St. Augustine High in the semifinal round to return to the playoffs. Wolfson High won district. Columbia was knocked out by Ridgeview High for the second year. The Panthers advanced to the third round.

DEAR ABBY: I have some advice for “Lacking Why,” the girl in your Oct. 18 column who is wonder-ing why the amount of allowance money Grandpa gives her and her sisters varies from one girl to the other: Stop comparing the amounts and try focusing on how attentive each of you is to your grandfather. Do you all visit him with the same frequency? Do you all write thank-you notes for his generosity? Do you all phone him the same number of times each week? Do you all remem-ber his birthday with a nice card or small gift? Do you take turns baking him a birthday cake? I suspect, as with my grandchildren, there are wide disparities in the way these sisters treat Grandpa. Why would a person who ignores him expect the same generos-ity as one who showers him with love and affec-tion? I have two grown grandkids who treat me differently and, son of a gun, I respond in kind. — CONNECTICUT GRANDMA DEAR GRANDMA: Your explanation is one I received from other read-ers as well. That letter resonated with a large number of people, and what follows is a sampling of their responses: DEAR ABBY: Financially speaking, I’ll bet there’s a good reason for the disparity in the amounts “Lacking” and her sisters receive. If Grandpa intends that each granddaughter receive the same sum of money by age 18, and he started giving the money to each of them at the same time, he would HAVE to give them differ-ent amounts. This concept would be hard to explain to a child, which may be why the girls were never sure about the “why.” — NUMBERS GUY IN SAN MATEO, CALIF. DEAR ABBY: My father did the same thing. Each year I received more money from my dad than my brothers did. Eventually I asked him why, and it turned out he felt that over the years he had helped them more in other ways. They had lived at home longer than I had, and Dad had paid for their educations while I’d had a scholarship. In his mind, he was trying to even things out. Funny thing was, it didn’t matter to me. But I never told my brothers. — SOLVED THE PUZZLE IN DENVER DEAR ABBY: The mother of those girls should be the one to broach the subject with her father. She can soften the response to her daugh-ters and point out to her father the possible harm he may be causing within the family. But in the end, if Grandpa doesn’t budge, they’ll all have to learn to live with it. — KEN IN SARASOTA, FLA. DEAR ABBY: I would recommend that they first discuss among themselves the differences in their own circumstances and their relationship with their grandparent. It might be that those in need, those who invest wisely or those who respond kindly receive more. I help my kids and grandkids based on what their needs are and how they spend the money. It is not a matter of favoritism. And being thanked once in a while doesn’t hurt, either. — PATRICIA IN TEMPE, ARIZ. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Stick close to home and finish up odd jobs. Avoid excess and keep your emotions in check. Don’t let criticism or conversations with peo-ple you must humor at this time of the year get to you. Avoid controversy. +++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Travel to be closer to the ones you love. Have fun, enjoy the banter and the group effort that helps make an enjoyable get-together spectacular. Add some high-spirited romance into the mix and you will have a memory for years to come. +++++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Emotions will surface if you have over-spent. Social gestures will not be sincere and a prob-lem with honesty prevails. Say little, but listen care-fully for any information that will help you make an important decision that will influence your status. ++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Spend time with people who have something unique to offer. Partnerships with people sharing similar interests and concerns will make your day. You may have to make a last-minute change, but don’t fret; just deal with it and keep moving. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take care of family and work responsibilities before you join in any festivities happening at home or in your com-munity. Rushing off to a unique destination or tak-ing a journey that offers excitement and plenty of physical activity should be considered. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): If you’ve left your shopping or traveling to the last minute, this is a great day to get things done. Heading from one destination to another will result in meeting people who have a unique way of celebrating. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Make adjustments to ensure that you end the year void of any conflicts and stress that have held you back. Shake things up a bit. Focus on being at your very best and eliminating anyone or anything that has been excessive. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Embrace life and the joy of the festive season. Make travel enjoy-able by sharing the time with someone special. You have plenty to look for-ward to and are likely to learn a great deal from the people you reconnect or travel with today. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t let someone’s bad mood or atti-tude cause you grief. Focus on your home, family and making your surroundings interesting and comfort-able. Good fortune comes from giving back, helping others and trying your best. Respect everyone’s beliefs and traditions. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Express your gratitude and make positive alterations at home and to the way you live. Don’t let a last-minute change someone makes ruin your plans. Caution while traveling will be nec-essary. Refuse to argue; exude patience and toler-ance. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Get your personal paperwork in order and take care of any last-minute business that could alter your financial, medi-cal or legal situation in the new year. A change in the way you receive, earn and handle money will pay off. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): A romantic relationship will excel if you make a commitment or uphold a promise. Joint ventures appear to be very settling and beneficial. Share your thoughts, ideas and plans for the future. Pick up something you know will please the one you love. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
