EX-SHERIFF'S C



Crews could have gone free


Gets 6 months' probation, but
couldn't be linked to missing
drug money, prosecutor says.

By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Former Columbia County Sheriff's
Office comptroller Kelly Crews has been
sentenced to six months' probation in con-
nection with confiscated drug money that
went missing.


However, prosecutors say Crews would
likely not have been indicted had more
been known about the case earlier.
David A. Phelps, the assistant state
attorney who prosecuted the case, said
about $16,000 in confiscated cash was
never accounted for by sheriffs officials.
Some of the money, about $4,000, was
reported stolen from Crews' desk.
Investigators were never able to link
Crews to the stolen funds, however.
"We were not able to determine she was
the only -one who handled the money at


a particular time," Phelps
said.
In fact, prosecutors
couldn't even say how
much she stole.
"She wasn't accused of
taking a specific amount,"
Crews Phelps said.
Crews, who had been
facing seven felony counts, pleaded no
contest to reduced charges in exchange
for probation and withholding of adjudica-
tion of guilt.


According to a grand jury indictment,
between April 26, 2006 and Dec, 8, 2008,
Crews, 53, stole funds entrusted to her by
her employer.
She was arrested Aug. 19, 2010 and
released the same day. ,
However, while preparing the case it
finally became apparent there was no clear
trail leading only to Crews, Phelps said.
Poor record-keeping in the sheriff's
office was to blame, he said.

Safety officials gather
to stress dangers of
distracted driving.

By TONY BRITT

Looking at the screen of a
GPS, talking on a cell phone,
taking a glimpse at a DVD or
even adjusting your car radio
can lead to distracted driv-
ing the underlying cause
of countless vehicle crashes
across the country.
Advancements in technol-
ogy are designed to make our
lives easier, but first respond-
'ers are learning that technol-
ogy can also cause vehicle
crashes.
Tuesday morning local
and state law enforcement
agencies held a holiday driv-
ing press conference where
they stressed the importance
of keeping your eyes on the
road.
The event was held at
the parking lot south of the
Lake City Police station with
members of the Columbia
County Community Traffic
Safety Team present includ-
ing representatives from the
DepartmentofTransportation,
Lake City Police Department,
Columbia County Sheriff's
Office, Columbia County
Emergency Management,
Columbia County Fire-Rescue
and the Florida Highway
Patrol and Department of
Motor Carrier Compliance in
attendance.

Baker prison will be built, sit empty


By LAURA HAMPSON
lhampson@lakecityreporter.com
Construction will be completed
on the Florida Department of
Correction's re-entry program
facility in Baker County, but the
facility will not house inmates or
employ local residents.


The facility does not have
money from the state for opera-
tions and will not open for some
time, said Jo Ellyn Rackleff,
public information specialist
for the Florida Department of
Corrections.
Rackleff said there is enough
money to finish construction


but it will sit vacant until the
facility is needed and funded in
the future.
The more than 400-bed facility
is located four miles east of the
Baker Correctional Institution
on US 90 near Olustee. In
June 2010 the Baker County
Commission voted to rezone the


land from agriculture to insti-
tutional. Construction on the
25-acre site is scheduled for
completion in late 2012.
The re-entry program prepares
offenders to return to society.
Baker Correctional Institute was
designated a re-entry prison in
2009.

Alec Baldwin booted from plane


LOS ANGELES
Alec Baldwin says he was kicked
off a plane Tuesday at Los Angeles
*International Airport after having
-words with a flight attendant over an
"addicting" word game he was play-
ing on his cellphone..
The "30 Rock" actor was asked to
get off a New York City-bound flight
for playing 'Words with Friends"
while the plane idled at a gate
Tuesday, said Baldwin's spokesman,
Matthew Hiltzik.
"He loves Words with Friends' so
much that he was willing to leave
a plane for it," said Hiltzik, who
added that Baldwin boarded another
American Airlines flight to New
York.
Baldwin, a prolific Twitter user,
took to the social media site to
vent, saying a "flight attendant on
American reamed me out 4 playing
Words With Friends while we sat at
the gate, not moving."
It wasn't clear if passengers had
been asked to turn off their cell-
. phones, which is typical before a
flight backs away from the terminal.
American Airlines spokesman Ed
Martelle declined comment, citing
customer privacy concerns.
Airport police Sgt. Belinda Nettles
said officers did not respond to the
incident.
Baldwin tweeted that'it would be
his last flight with American, despite
the fact that they show "30 Rock" for
in-flight entertainment. He mocked
American Airlines flight attendants
on Twitter, saying the airline is
"where Catholic school gym teach-
ers from the 1950's find jobs as flight
attendants."
Baldwin called "Words With
Friends" an "addicting" game.
Players compete online to score the
most points by building words with
tiles on a Scrabble-like game board.


Harry Potter cast members James Phelps, left, and Oliver Phelps make a but-
terbeer toast as Universal Parks & Resorts announces the Harry Potter attraction

alcohol level more

The report obtained by The
Associated Press through a Freedom
of Information Act request says the


26-year-old from Dearborn was pulled
over early Saturday going 60 mph,
weaving in heavy traffic and changing
lanes with a turn signal.
The report says she was driving a
black 2011 Jaguar arid "immediately
identified herself as Miss USA."
The former Miss Michigan born in
Lebanon won the Miss USA Pageant
in 2010 and her reign ended earlier
this year.
She won the Miss USA Pageant in
May 2010. Her reign ended June 19,
2011. She was the first'Miss Michigan
to win the title since 1993 and the first

Redistricting
plans introduced
TALLAHASSEE A
Florida Senate commit-
tee voted on Tuesday to
introduce congressional
and Senate redistricting
plans that put a priority
on protecting minority
representation but that
critics say are too protec-
tive of incumbents and
Republican majorities.
The House Redistricting
Committee, meanwhile,
unveiled an array of
options five maps for its
own chamber and seven
for Congress.
Both Republican-
controlled chambers
are far from finished.
Subcommittees will dis-
cuss the House proposals
on Thursday but no votes
are expected then.
The Senate
Reapportionment
Committee is set to take
another look at its propos-
als on Jan. 11, a day after
the 2012 legislative session
begins. A Senate floor vote
is set for Jan. 18. r
Democratic Leader
Nan Rich of Weston voted
against introducing the
Senate's redistricting
plans, but only two other
Democrats joined her.
Each vote was 23-3, with
17 Republicans and six
Democrats in favor.
The proposals would
violate two anti-gerryman-
dering amendments to the
Florida Constitution that
voters adopted last year,
Rich said. The amend-
ments prohibit drawing
lines to benefit incumbents
or political parties.

State debt drop
first in 2 decades
TALLAHASSEE For
two decades Florida's
debt had been rising,
climbing as much as $1
billion a year as the state
built schools, bought land
and embarked on new


toll roads to deal with its
growth.
Even 12 years of
Republican control over
state government did little
to bring down the overall
debt owed by the state.
But that finally changed
this year.
State officials on
Tuesday released an annu-
al report that shows for
the first time in at least 20
years Florida's overall debt
has dropped by some $500
million. Florida has $27.7
billion overall in outstand-
ing debt.
The main reasons for
the decline include a deci-
sion by state lawmakers
to stop borrowing money
for the Florida Forever
land-buying program as
well as a decision by Gov.
Rick Scott this past spring
to veto more than $100
million worth of college
construction projects. That
means the state wound up
paying off more. this year
than it borrowed.

GOP not worried
about convention
TAMPA Republican
National Convention plan-
ners on Tuesday played
down concerns about
protests and potentially
stormy or steamy weather
as they provided the media
with a glimpse of plans for
next summer's event.
The Aug. 27-30 conven-
tion, which will select the
GOP presidential nominee,
will be the first political
convention in Florida since
Miami Beach hosted both
party conventions in 1972.
The 2012 Republican con-
vention will happen during
Atlantic hurricane season,
but if planners are overly
concerned about a storm
disrupting the party, they
aren't letting on.
"You always have con-
tingencies for everything,",
said convention CEO Bill
Harris, who has participat-
ed in planning for 10 previ-


ous Republican party con-
ventions. "But the weather
is going to be great."
Actually, history is on
their side. The Tampa
area hasn't had a direct
hit from a hurricane since
1921, although Hurricane
Charley caused cata-
strophic damage when it
slammed into Punta
Gorda, 100 miles south, in
August 2004.
Around 50,000 people
are expected to come to
the Tampa Bay area for the
convention, including 5,000
to 6,000 delegates, .15,000
media members and pos-
sibly 10,000 protesters.

Charities seek
bilingual Santas

MIAMI South Florida
charities are looking for
bilingual Santas to say 'ho,
ho, ho' in every language.
Community leaders say
children can relate better
to a Santa that speaks their
language and has the same
skin color.
For the third year in
a row, volunteer Alain
Lafontant will play Papa
Noel in the Haitian com-
munity.
He speaks to the kids in
English, French or Haitian
Creole.

Job opening for
alligator trappers

WEST PALM BEACH
- State wildlife officials
are looking to hire alliga-
tor trappers in Martin and
Palm Beach counties to
help remove alligators in
developed areas.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission's Statewide
Nuisance Alligator
Program is accepting appli-
cations for contracted trap-
pers. The deadline to apply
is Dec. 15.

SAFETY: Eyes on the road, please
Continued From Page 1A


Community Traffic Safety
Team chairman. "We have
a lot of interstate miles and
a lot of roads throughout the
county where people need to
be safe and not distracted in
what they're doing. It makes
things safer, our jobs much
easier and a happier holiday
for everybody."
Argatha Gilmore, Lake
City Police Department chief
of police, said close to 21
percent of 1.6 million injury-
related crashes are attribut-
able to distracted driving.
"We have a lot of cases
where a mere distraction can
cause a fatal injury to our loved
ones. That's why we're asking


people not to drive while they
are distracted," she said. "Just
anything that distracts the
driver from their primary task
of driving is unsafe, ifs irre-
sponsible and a split second
, can cause devastation during
this holiday season."
Driving under the influ-
ence remains a concern as
well.
Florida Highway Patrol Maj.
Gene Spaulding said last year
during the four-day Christmas
holiday there were 24 deaths
on Florida roadways. Eight
were alcohol-related.
He said during the New
Year's holiday last year there
were 32 traffic deaths, 12 of


which were alcohol related.
"We encourage everyone
to make sure they follow the
rules and regulations of the
road," he said.
Columbia County Sheriff
Mark Hunter challenged citi-
zens to have a safe and happy
holiday and talked about the
importance of spending time
with family rather than in jail
or recuperating from inju-
roes suffered a wreck.
AndreaAtran, Department
of Transportation traffic
safety program manager,
also promoted Recipes 4
The Road, a compilation of
non-alcoholic holiday bever-
ages.


CREWS: 6 months' probation

Continued From Page 1A


"It was the system that
allowed this to occur,"
Phelps said. "I believe that
what we ended up with
addressed what we could
prove her involvement was."
Phelps said he was satis-
fied with the sentence given
Crews.
"We attempted to resolve
the case in a manner that fit
her actions," he said.
Crews had been facing six
counts of third-degree grand
theft and one count of official
misconduct During a hear-
ing Monday at the Columbia
County Courthouse, Circuit
Judge David W. Fina sen-
tenced Crews to six months'
unsupervised probation and
ordered her to pay $323 in
court costs and fees.
Crews, who had worked


for the sheriff's office since
July 1, 1985, was placed on
unpaid administrative leave
Sept 16, 2010.
"When she was placed
on administrative leave the
sheriff's office opened, an
internal investigation," said
Sgt Ed Seifert, a sheriffs
spokesman. "During the
criminal investigation the
internal investigative process
was placed on hold pending
the outcome of the crimi-
nal case, which is standard
procedure. Now that the
criminal matter has been dis-
posed of through the courts,
the internal investigation will
restart and once that investi-
gation is closed a determina-
tion will be made as to her
employment status."
In February a judge sen-


tenced former Columbia
County Sheriff's Office
employee Pamela Marie
Foxx to 23 months in state
prison after -she pleaded
guilty to grand theft of more
than $100,000.
Circuit Judge Paul Bryan
handed down the sentence
as part of a plea deal. The
prison term is to be followed
by 15 years' probation.
Foxx, 47, had worked at
the sheriff's office for 15
years as a legal assistant
She wag arrested April
24, 2010, after admitting
she took official funds and
deposited them into her
personal account.
Phelps said Crews was
the person who informed
authorities about the miss-
ing funds in the case.

Blank-Fest helps the homeless


LAURA HAMFPSUNLaKe City Reported
Sheila Wallace, of Lake City, donates a blanket during Blank-Fest Saturday at The
Rockstar Lounge, 723 E. Duval St. The event featured six bands and raffles. The bar has
hosted the event for the past three years, said Shawne Cochrane, owner. "This kind of
business can have a bad reputation but we care about the community too," she said. The
idea for Blank-Fest originated in New York City in 1997, said organizer Jami Kurtz. It gives
musicians a change to play and everyone a chance to help the community, Kurtz said. The
event collected more than 200 blankets for United Way who will distribute the blankets to
area homeless people.

OPINION


The 8.6


percent


illusion
The Obama admin-
istration received
a welcome gift
from the Bureau of
Labor of Statistics
(BLS) on Friday. The govern-
ment's official unemployment
figure dipped to 8.6 percent in
November, a rather surprising
turn given that the economy
added a paltry 120,000 new jobs
that month. That's the first tip-
off that the scenario isn't rosy.
President Obama shouldn't
break out the Cristal cham-
pagne quite yet.
Only in a world of low expecta-
tions could an unemployment rate
of 8.6 percent be considered good
news. True enough, we're out-
performing the European Union,
which is expected to grow a mea-
ger 0.2 percent The Old World
is seeing virtually no job creation
as investors flee its markets. On
our shores, 5.7 million Americans
remain hopelessly unemployed
for the long term. At best, Friday's
announcement signals that we are
not sliding into recession at least
notyet
All the same, the BLS fig-
ures are worth a closer look.
In November, the ranks of the
unemployed fell by 594,000 but not
because everyone landed a new
job. To the contrary, labor-force
participation fell 0.2 percent to less
than 64 percent for the first time in
a long time. That means as many
as 300,000 simply left the work-
force, and not all did so voluntarily.
A good portion of the 120,000
new jobs irexried last month
appear to be driven by the needs
of the holiday season. Retail added
50,000 jobs, with leisure and food
adding 22,000. Professional and
business services added about
33,000. What these industries have
in common is that they depend
heavily on seasonal help. There is
little reason to believe that these
gains will persist even in the
medium term. Most likely, these
jobs will disappear early in the new
year.
A bump in seasonal employ-
nent is certainly better than no
jobs at all, but whafs needed is a
solid improvement in long-term
employment That's something we
won't see unless Congress gets
serious about unleashing the pri-
vate sector's entrepreneurial spirit

Brutality and impunity


at FAMU


S pike Lee's 1988 film
"School Daze" is filled
with violent hazing
scenes involving the
Gammites, pledges
for the Gamma Phi Gamma
Fraternity at Mission College.
The Gammites struggle to
please their Big Brothers.
One scene is notably brutal:
The Big Brothers line both sides
of the dark hallway. At the far-
thest end stand the Gammites.
One by one, the Gammites run
through the line. They cover
their heads and eyes as the Big
Brothers beat them unmerci-
fully. They are going through the
"Gamma Mill." Top administra-
tors, including the president,
go about their regular business,
paying little if any attention to
the ritualized brutality on their
campus.
Although Mission College is
a fictional school in a fictional
Southern city and Gamma Phi
Gamma is an imaginary frat,
"School Daze" depicts real haz-
ing, a practice that includes
paddling, punching, slapping,
sleep deprivation, branding and
the forced drinking of excessive
booze.
Mission College could be
Florida A and M University.
Such scenes.have occurred at
the historically black school in
Tallahassee thousands of times
during the history of its famous
band, the Marching 100. The
band now is in the news because
of the alleged hazing death of
Robert Champion, a 26-year-old
clarinet player and drum major.
Champion, a Decatur, Ga.,
native, died Nov. 19, a few hours
after performing on the field dur-
ing the Florida Classic football
game in Orlando, where FAMU
lost to in-state rival Bethune-
Cookman University. He was
found unresponsive on a bus
outside the band's hotel. He died
at a hospital.
Julian White, the 71-year-old
band director fired by FAMU
president James H. Ammons
for "misconduct and/or incom-
petence" spoke with band
members shortly after Champion
died. He said it appeared the
drum major had been hazed on
the bus, repeatedly struck by
a group of band members. He
vomited and lost consciousness
after the beating.
White described the attackers
as "a gang." Investigations reveal


Today is Wednesday, Dec. 7,
the 341st day of 2011. There are
24 days left in the year.

or inter-band frats, with handles
such as "The Clones," the "Red
Dawgs Organization" and the
"White Whales." Each gang
enforces its own cred, a practice
FAMU alumni and supporters
long ago accepted as part of
the price of belonging to the'
nation's most famous marching
band and one of the university's
best recruiting tools. It has per-
formed at several Super Bowls,
the Grammys, at presidential
inaugurations and represented
the United States at the 200th
anniversary.of the French
Revolution.
If, as evidence indicates,
Champion died from hazing,
the Board of Governors, which
controls the university system,
should punish those responsible
to the maximum extent This
includes Ammons.
When he became the univer-
sity's 10th president in 2007,
replacing interim Castell Bryant,
Ammons was greeted with signs
reading "Welcome Home" and "A
True Rattler." A Florida native,
Ammons earned his bachelor's
degree and master's degree from
FAMU, taught there during the
1980s and served as a top admin-
istiator before going to North
Carolina Central University.
His homecoming was to be
a new beginning at the nation's
largest historically black universi-
ty. For years, it had been plagued
by financial mismanagement and
academic problems that threat-
ened its accreditation.
Ammons made several posi-
tive changes, but the destructive
culture of cronyism, nepotism,
secrecy and blind loyalty remain.
It is a culture, which Ammons
knows well, that allows hazing to
thrive in the Marching 100.
As its legend grew over the
years, the band became FAMU's
brand, and administrators either
turned a blind eye to its many
misdeeds or gave light punish-
ment such as suspensions from
the band rather than expulsions

from the university.
Over the years, White, a ten-
ured professor who was associ-
ated with the band for 38 years
and was its director since 1998,
repeatedly told his supervisors
about hazing incidents as 150
pages of documents released
after Ammons fired him show.
He held hazing workshops,
spoke one-on-one with band
members, sought out places
where hazing was suspected
and suspended many players
over the years. In fact, he sus-
pended 26 players for hazing a
week before this year's Florida
Classic. And to no avail, in a let-'
ter to then-band director William
Foster during the 1980s, White
warned that the death of a mem-
ber as a result of hazing could
spell the end of the Marching
100.
Ironically, the end came for
White's career. Ammons is
using him as a scapegoat to
divert attention from his failure
of leadership related to hazing,
a third-degree felony in Florida.
Ammons 'also dismissed four
students for their alleged involve-
ment in the drum major's death.
As he should, White is suing
to get his job back, arguing that
as a tenured professor he has the
right to due process.
The university's board of trust-
ees, Chancellor Frank Brogan,
Gov. Rick Scott and other offi-
cials should investigate Ammons'
leadership and fire him if he is
shown to have acted irrespon-
sibly by condoning cover-ups
and ignoring years of evidence
and warnings that hazing was
routine.
Ammons knows, for example,
that former band members Ivery
Luckey and Marcus Parker were
hazed and that they success-
fully sued. Luckey was awarded
$50,000 in 2004. He was paddled
more than 300 times and was
hospitalized. Parker won $1.8
million in 2001 for beatings that
damaged his kidney.
As president and a FAMU
graduate, Ammons has all of this
history and more. He should not
be allowed to hide behind scape-
goats and his "zero tolerance"
rhetoric. And if Champion's
death proves to be the result of
hazing, the Marching 100. should
be given the death penalty.

THEIR
EW


This


planet is


most like


home yet


the announcement
of two extraordinary
astronomical dis-
coveries, once again
illustrating that we are not even
on the cusp of understanding
our universe.
NASA announced that its
planet-hunting Kepler telescope
had found a potentially life-sus-
taining planet similar to Earth.
The planet, Kepler-22b, orbits
a star much like the sun; has a
year of 290 days, not too far off
our own; has a balmy surface
temperature of 72 degrees;
observers speculate that it is
almost the same color as Earth;
and has water, although some
scientists believe it may have
too much water and that the
whole planet is covered with it
The planet is 2.4 times the
size of Earth with a possible
gas-liquid atmosphere that
would make it uninhabitable
by earthlings, at least with cur-
rent technology. Even though
Kepler-22b is not the sought-
after Earth twin, it is the best
candidate yet discovered.
The first extra-solar planet
was discovered in 1995, and
discoveries slowly picked up
after that as detection meth-
ods improved. But the real
breakthrough came in 2009
with the launch of the Kepler
space telescope. Since then,
Kepler has identified 2,236
candidate planets, 139 of them
potentially habitable. And the
Kepler has only just begun
searching.
This is vital research, but of
the most basic sort. If there
is an Earth twin out there, we
want to visit it, even colonize
it. But Kepler-22b is over 600
light-years away and it would
take a space shuttle, assuming
we start building them again,
22 million years to reach it.
If there is alien life out
there, the best opportunity of
finding it is the SETI project,
a complex of 42 radio tele-
scopes, but its work was sus-
pended over the summer for
lack of funds.
Meanwhile, University of
California, Berkeley, astrono-
mers on Monday announced
the discovery of two massive
black holes, the largest yet,
one of them 9.7 billion times
the size of the sun. A black
hole is formed by the collapse
of a giant star in on itself, cre-
ating a gravitational hole so
dense that nothing escapes,
not even light or another star
that happens to get too close.
The black holes are more than
300 million light-years away,
which, the Associated Press
rather alarmingly points out, is
"relatively close on the galactic
scale."
These discoveries are pure
basic research and it's not
cheap; Kepler cost $600 mil-
lion to build and launch. These
discoveries have no immediate
practical applications, although
the methods used to make
them do.
But the discoveries go to the
core of what makes us humans:
We can't stand not knowing.

By BRANDON FINLEY
bfinley@lakecityreporter.com
With a goal from Alexa
Hatcher off an assist by
Caitlin Congi, the Fort
White High Lady Indians
defeated Columbia High in
soccer for the first time at
Tiger Stadium on Tuesday.
"This is a stepping stone
for our program," Fort
White head coach Perry
Sauls said. "You never know
what it will take to motivate
the kids. Some people call
this a rivalry. I don't, but
they are the big boys on
the block. A win for us is a
big deal." -
Hatcher's goal came with
2:33 remaining in the first
half.
Fort White was coming
off a district loss against.
.K Yonge on Monday. With
the win the Lady Indians
improved to 6-5-1 (5-5-1, dis-
trict) for the season.
The Lady Tigers fell on
Monday as well. Columbia
dropped a 4-1 contest


against Chiles High.
Christy Everett scored a
goal off an assist by Jamie
Vincent.
On the boys' side,
Columbia cruised to an 8-1
victory against the Indians.
Dylan Sessions scored
off Tucker Stanton's assist
in the opening minutes and
Columbia never looked
back.
Cody Beadles followed
up with a goal less than 30
seconds later off of a Travis
Berry pass to go up 2-0,
but Colton Jones pulled the
Indians back within 2-1 with
a goal for the Indians.
Jimmy ,Blakely would
score the next three goals
to extend Columbia's lead
to 5-1 off assists by Nikil
Swaroop and Anthony
Picklo.
In the second half, Kevin
Pittman scored from an
assist by Tristan O'Steen
and then O'Steen followed
it up with a goal on an assist
by Rogelio Sosa.
Columbia is 6-5.

Luck was the Heisman
runner-up to Auburn's
Cam Newton last year and
passed up a chance to be
the No. 1 pick in the NFL
draft to return to Stanford
for his junior season. From
the moment he made the
decision to stay in school
in January, he became the
odds-on favorite to win the
big bronze statue.
Luck is looking to
become Stanford's second
Heisman winner, joining
quarterback Jim Plunkett,
who won in 1970.
"It would mean a lot,"
Luck 'said in an interview
on ESPN. "I-would mean
a great deal for the univer-
sity. Mean a lot to me and
a great deal to the football
program, as well."
He had another stel-
lar season, passing for
3,170 yards with 35 touch-
downs while leading the
Cardinal to an 11-1 record
and a second straight BCS
bid.

tAGARTHE HORRIBLE


DEAR ABBY


Husband is aging too well

for worrying wife to handle


DEAR ABBY: When
I married my husband,
"Mason," 30 years ago, I
was the only girl he could
get He was a great catch
by my standards and still
, is. But back then nobody
else wanted him but me,
which was fine with me. I
don't like competition.
We have had a great
life together up until the
last 10 years or so. Mason
is aging gracefully, and
there's something about
him now that every woman
is suddenly interested in.
They all treat him like he's
a new toy. They fawn over
him and I become invis-
ible.
We don't get out much,
and I used to think I
wanted to go out more
but now I just want to
stay home and hide my
husband inside. The real
problem is, Mason loves
the attention. It could be
- what he always wanted. I
don't know how to handle
this without getting my
feelings hurt, pouting and
being incredibly jealous.
He gives me no reason to
think he'll be unfaithful,
but I can't help but worry.
Help! WIFE OF A LATE
BLOOMER
DEAR WIFE:
Congratulations. You are
now a member of a "club"
comprised of spouses
living in the shadows of
actors, politicians, moguls,
etc. However, your self-
esteem issues could create
real problems for you and
your husband if you don't

learn to deal with them.

DEAR ABBY; My son
and daughter-in-law live like
pigs. Neither one of them
. was raised that way. They
live in a beautiful home that
literally smells like a litter
box. I would look the other
way or not visit, but now
they have four children.
Not only are my grand-
children unkempt and
dirty dirty clothes,
smelly shoes, unwashed
hair but my son and his
wife foist their parenting
duties off on their daugh-
ter, who's only 10. It's HER
job to get her brothers
up and bathed, changed,
dressed and fed so Mom
and Dad can sleep late. '
The poor girl is exhausted
all the time. She doesn't
always have the time to
brush her own hair/teeth
before school. She's often
made fun of.
My son sees nothing
wrong with these "chores,"
and I'm afraid to say any-
thing because I know my
daughter-in-law will cut me
off from the kids. What's
sad is my son allows it.-
Am I crazy? Please help. -

LAKE CITY REPORTER


At home at Eastside Retirement Village


From staff reports

N estled on the east side of Lake
City is an 80-acre tract of land
that serves as the collective
homesite for a number of local
senior citizens and retirees.
Manicured lawns, manufactured and site-
built homes, no dogs weighing more than
35 pounds and a quiet atmosphere are the
trademarks of Eastside Retirement Village,
which has been a part of Columbia County
since the early 1980s.
The Eastside Retirement Village is a
retirement community specifically built
for people who are 55 and older.
The retirement community, started in
1985 by Kermit and Ann Horne, began
as a community that housed 39 manu-
factured homes for its first three years.
Then, a switch was made in which site-
built homes were constructed on the
property. The facility is now only site-built
homes. The Hornes sold Eastside Village
and the remaining undeveloped land
to Kirby and Dorothy Morgan in 1994.
Eastside Village Realty was incorporated
under the Morgan's ownership.
'We have a total of 262 lots and three
are still available to build on," said Denise
Bose, broker and office manager at
Eastside Village Realty Inc. "Basically
all of our residents are retired people
who live here. About 99 percent of our
residents live here full time and we have
about five residents that go back home."
Bose shows homes in the quaint retire-
ment community.
She has been working at Eastside Village
for more than 20 years. She began work-
ing there as a secretary in data entry and
became a sales person and then the com-
munity's liaison between the developer and
builder for the residents and later became a
broker. The last home was built in 2005.
Eastside Retirement Village has its
office at 164 SE Pearl Terrace, inside
the retirement community.

VMiage Realty Inc.


Denise Bose, broker and office manager at Eastside Village Realty Inc.


The retirement community has sched-
uled activities for its residents, such as
bingo, game or movie night, aerobics,
billiards competitions, bridge contests,
shuffleboard and canasta contests.
There is also a clubhouse in the neigh-
borhood where residents can take part
in the activities or schedule weddings or
anniversary parties.
"We're unique and special because we're
the only retirement community in Lake
City that has the amenities that we have,"
Bose said, noting that residents own their


own homes and lots at Eastside Retirement
Village. '"We're the only one that has a
heated swimming pool and a clubhouse
with about 6,000 sq. ft. We have two librar-
ies, a workout room, two pool tables and a
ballroom with a full kitchen at one end."
The neighborhood only has one entry
and exit point, with a guardhouse should,
security be needed.
"We've never had any problems and
hopefully we'll continue to be that way,
but it is set up to be gated in the event
the board of directors feel we need to


have that done," Bose said.
Eastside Retirement Village has a
homeowner's association and its residents
vote in a nine-member board of direc-
tors each year. The board of directors is
entrusted with taking care of finances as
required by the state for insurance pur-
poses. The streets in the subdivision are
private as well, and a maintenance agree-
ment is also required.
"It's a non profit organization, but there
is a lot to running the homeowners asso-
ciation," Bose said.
