BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comBusiness owner Kendrick Maeweather’s business license remains suspended after the city council meeting on Monday night. The council agreed to restore his license in May on condition that Maeweather reapply for a license. Maeweather’s license for Hole in the Wall Game and Arcade was suspended in February after a string of complaints were reported concerning underage drinking, violent activity and various building code infractions. Maeweather claims that the reported incidents happened in the parking lot and not inside the doors of his building. Maeweather appealed his suspension on April 2. The council requested a secu-rity plan be presented by Maeweather at the next city council meeting and tabled the discussion. Maeweather provided a signed letter to the council saying that he planned to change the age of entry from 18 to 21 years of age. He also said that he had spo-ken with Sheriff Mark Hunter, who agreed that two deputy sheriffs would work as “full time active security” at his business during weekend hours. “The security will be required to execute random consecutive appearances inside and outside the premises to deter all potential smoking in the building and violence of any type,” Maeweather wrote in his letter. “There seems to be some misunderstandings on really what he wants to do,” City Manager Wendell Johnson said.

BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comF ollowing the paths of Florida panther and black bear tracks, the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition Team made a stop in Olustee National Park on Monday to share stories from their extended hike through Florida’s natural ecosystems. Photographer Carlton Ward Jr., biologist Joe Guthrie, conservationist Mallory Lykes Dimmitt and filmmaker Elam Stoltzfus make up the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition Team. The expedition team is on a mission to hike 1,000 miles in 100 days, making stops along the way to raise awareness about Florida’s wildlife corridor. This was Day 91. The corridor is a passageway of interconnected natural lands that runs from the Everglades to the Okefenokee. Completed in 2004, it functions as an avenue for facilitating ecological balance within the state. The corridor’s existence helps to combat fragmentation, or the separation of ecosys-tems, which decreases genetic diversity and limits the resources available to wild animals. “We have tried to go along a north-south TEAM continued on 5AThe newFCAT:Plenty’sat stakeBy LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comStudents across Columbia County and the state will crack open booklets and power on computers today for the sec-ond day of the new, harder FCAT. Today students in third through 10th grade will take the reading portion of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Tests. This is the first year students will take FCAT 2.0, which carries a tougher scor-ing standard than the original FCAT and is based on the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards. More students are expected to fail statewide because of the new scoring standards. “We are expecting a drop in scores,” said Kitty McElhaney, district director of curriculum, assessment and accountabil-ity. If a school’s grade drops or increases it won’t necessarily mean student performance in the school changed, it’s just that the ruler used to measure performance has changed. FCAT scores affect school grades, teacher evaluations, course assignments, and pro-motion and graduation deci-sions. A failing grade can affect students in a number of ways. Third-grade students who fail can be retained. Failing grades can also force students to take remedial math or read-ing classes and eventually keep students from graduat-ing high school. A 10th grade student must pass the reading portion of the FCAT to graduate. But they get two chances to pass in 11th grade and two more opportunities senior year. Third graders especially can be nervous about the FCAT because they are taking the real test for the first time and advancing to fourth grade depends on their scores, McElhaney said. Teachers are sensitive to students’ anxiousness about the test, she said. “They tell students to do their best.” Most teachers have techniques to help students relax and focus. Teachers and students at Pinemount Elementary School made a music video to the tune of popular song “Tonight, Tonight” to help stuThis year’s test to be graded on tougher scale.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS AROUND FLORIDA UF student dies after plummet GAINESVILLE Police said a 26-year-old journal ism student apparently jumped to his death from a stairwell in the west stands of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium at the University of Florida. University police spokes man Brad Barber said that Michael Richard Edmonds Jr. was pronounced dead just after 7 p.m. Sunday. Barber said there is no indication of foul play and investigators were still trying to determine what happened. Court records indicate Edmonds was arrested Saturday on a DUI charge. Answers sought in womans death ST. AUGUSTINE Family members said theyre looking for answers after Andrea Sheldon, 46, was shot and killed by sheriffs deputies in north east Florida. But the St. Johns County Sheriffs office said Sheldon came out of her mobile home Saturday night and aimed a shotgun at four deputies responding to a call about a despondent man in the nearby woods. Sheriffs spokesman Chuck Mulligan said Sheldon pointed the gun directly at one of the depu ties and didnt follow com mands to drop the weapon after deputies announced who they were. Mulligan said he did not know whether Sheldon fired a round. He said the case is under review by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Murder charge not result of outcry WEST PALM BEACH Gov. Rick Scott said he rejects suggestions that charges came in the killing of Trayvon Martin simply because of public pres sure. Taking questions from reporters at an economic forum in West Palm Beach, Scott said he doesnt believe special prosecutor Angela Corey is influenced by anything but the facts of the case. He said his focus is the same as hers justice for Martins family and due process for George Zimmerman, who is charged with seconddegree murder in the teens shooting death. Budget vetoes to test ties with GOP TALLAHASSEE Florida Gov. Rick Scotts friendship with the GOPcontrolled Legislature could be tested this week. Scott is expected on Tuesday to sign a $70 billion state budget into law. But before he signs the budget the governor will use his line-item veto power to cut projects approved by legislators. The question is how much the governor will veto and whether he is willing to antagonize fellow Republicans. Scott has promised to limit state borrowing and eliminate projects that dont give a good return to taxpayers. Long lines for Hard Rock jobs TAMPA Officials at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino opened the job fair hours early to accommodate hundreds of job seekers standing in long lines. The job fair was sched uled to begin at 9 a.m. Monday. But officials decided to open the doors after lines started forming at 5:30 a.m. More than 1,000 people had entered the job fair by mid-morning. Hard Rock officials said no more interviews are planned Monday. Casino spokeswoman Gina Morales said more than 3,000 people regis tered early to fill some 400 positions. The jobs include chefs, bartenders, servers cashiers and technicians for a $75 million expan sion. The first phase is expected to open in June. Associated Press Disney making Iron Man 3 with China BEIJING D isney Co. said Monday it will co-produce its next Iron Man movie with a Chinese partner in Hollywoods lat est effort to forge closer ties with Chinas fast-growing film industry. Iron Man 3, starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle, will begin filming this year, Walt Disney and its Chinese partner DMG Entertainment said. They said DMG will jointly produce the movie in China but gave no indi cation what parts might be filmed in this country. We know Chinese audiences love Iron Man. So we are going to add Chinese elements and a Chinese story into Iron Man 3, Disneys general manager for Greater China, Stanley Cheung, said at a news con ference. Disney and Beijing-based DMG said the Chinese company will invest in Iron Man 3 but gave no details. Foreign film companies are launching ventures with Chinese partners to expand access to China, where box office receipts are grow ing rapidly at a time of weak sales in the United States and Europe. Chinas ticket sales rose by onethird last year to $2 billion while rev enue in North America, though still far larger at $10.2 billion, has fallen for two straight years. The communist government wants Chinese studios to learn from Hollywood and is trying to attract foreign studios to form ventures by promising more market access and a bigger share of ticket sales. Singer Bobby Brown pleads not guilty to DUI LOS ANGELES Bobby Brown has pleaded not guilty to drunken driving and other charges stemming from his arrest last month in Los Angeles. An attorney entered pleas Monday on Browns behalf to misde meanor counts of DUI, driving with an illegal blood-alcohol content and driv ing on a suspended license. He could face up to six months in jail if convicted. Ferguson taking Late Late Show to Scotland NEW YORK Craig Ferguson is going back to Scotland and taking Late Late Show viewers along for the trip. CBS said the Scotland-based episodes will air the week of May 14. While there, Ferguson explores Edinburgh and Glasgow. He also returns to his hometown of Cumbernauld, with stops at his childhood home and high school.

Music will be performed by local Glasgow rock band The Imagineers. GMA poised to end long Today winning streak NEW YORK ABCs Good Morning America is poised to snap a winning streak of more than 16 years by its NBC archrival, the Today show.

dents feel confident about the test. Teachers played the video for school board members during a meeting April 10. This is the first year sixth graders have taken the reading portion on the computer instead of with a booklet and pencil, she said. Tenth graders also take the reading section on the computer, which began last year. Scheduling students to work on computers was a challenge for schools, but it went well Monday, McElhaney said. Most stu dents were able to take the test at the beginning of the day while they were still fresh. Students testing on com puters did a practice test earlier in the year to get used to the computer pro gram and tools, she said. More grade levels will take the test on the com puter in the coming years, McElhaney said. Scores should released near May 14 for students who must retake the test and for third graders who fail. Scores for other stu dents are expected to be released by the end of May, McElhaney said. The district offers a sum mer reading camp for third graders who do not pass, she said. If students pass an exit test after the camp, they can be promoted to fourth grade. About 70 third grad ers attend the camp each summer, she said. Parents should make sure their children are well rested, have a good break fast and arrive to school on time, McElhaney said. Encouraging students to do their best with a positive attitude also helps ease test day jitters, she said. On Monday third, fourth, fifth, seventh, eighth, ninth and 10th graders took one 70 minute portion of the reading test. Sixth graders took both sections of the math test. On Wednesday third through fifth grade will take one part of the math test. Seventh and eighth grad ers will take both 70 minute portions of the math test, while sixth graders the rest of their reading test. On Thursday third through fifth grade will take the rest of the math test. Eighth graders will take both 80 minute por tions of the science test. Fifth graders will take an 80 minute science test April 24 and 25. Makeup testing for students absent for the first tests will con tinue until April 27.

Parking lot fracas ends in arrest By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com A Lake City man was arrested Sunday night after he allegedly struck a vehicle in the Walmart parking lot following an argument and confrontation and injured a woman. Michael Andrew Partin, 25, of 5709 206th Terrace, was charged with aggravat ed assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, and aggravated battery in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $8,000 bond. According to Lake City Police Department reports, officers were dis patched to the Walmart parking lot for a battery when they were told that one of the parties involved in the incident could possibly be at the Lake City Medical Center. When the officers arrived at the scene, they found EMS personnel treating a woman whose fianc reportedly told authorities Partin hit his fianc with his car. The man said his fianc and Partin got into an argument because she was driving the wrong way down the aisle and Partin allegedly spat on her and drove away. They attempted to follow Partin and get his license plate number when Partin stopped his vehicle, got out and con fronted the woman. The man reportedly said Partin had a knife, so he went toward Partin with a tire iron, swung at him, missed and struck Partins ca, according to policer. Authorities found Partin at Lake City Medical Center where he reportedly dropped off his girlfriend and an infant, both of whom were in his car during the incident. Partin told authorities he spat on the woman after she spat on him and then her fianc ran to his car and began beating on the trunk and smashed the back window with a tire iron. Partin said the infant was sitting on that side of the vehicle, so he attempted to drive away but was cut off by the woman, so he exited car and pulled out his pocket knife in self defense since the man still had the tire iron. Partin said he then drove to Lake City Medical Center due to glass being on the infant. Authorities interviewed independent witnesses who wrote statements about that they saw, but were unable to access the stpres video security system. Authorities recovered the pocket knife and placed it in evidence, reports said. Partin FCAT: Test to be graded on tougher scale; school grades expected to fall Continued From Page 1A Vetoes to test ties with legislators By GARY FINEOUT Associated Press TALLAHASSEE Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Tuesday will sign a new $70 billion state budget at a St. Johns County elementary school. Scott wants the lesson from the budget signing to be about the increased money that state lawmak ers steered toward schools during an election year. But how far Scott uses his veto pen to whack projects backed by his fellow Republicans could say a lot about whether he has completely discarded his 2010 campaign mes sage that he is an outsider willing to make tough decisions. Its what he doesnt approve that will tell you what hes thinking, said Rep. Ron Saunders, D-Key West and a one-time legislative budget chair man. Any action he takes will have more of an impact on Republican legislators than Democratic legisla tors. Republicans have a lot more in the budget and they have a lot more at risk. During his first year in office, Scott angered legislative leaders when he vetoed more than $600 million and then briefly suggested that they return to Tallahassee and take the money and set it aside for schools. This triggered protests from GOP leaders who pointed out that last years budget cut school spending less than what Scott himself initially proposed. Scott this January, however, threat ened to veto the entire state budget if it did not include a significant increase of new money for schools. Legislators went along with the governor, but the roughly $1 billion increase is not enough to wipe out last years cuts. And some of it is just filling budget holes brought on by more students and a loss in local property taxes. At the same time, however, legisla tors approved a budget that eliminates thousands of state government jobs, cuts health and human service pro grams, and slashes money to state universities. But powerful GOP legis lators were still able to insert millions in the budget for hometown projects. Last Friday a research and advo cacy group with close business ties urged Scott on Friday to veto $149.6 million in spending turkeys, includ ing projects that lawmakers added outside the normal budget process or that serve strictly local or private purposes. But top Republicans point how that Scott got much of what he asked for in the budget now sitting on his desk. We gave the governors recom mendations every consideration and many are included in the final prod uct, said Rep. Denise Grimsley, RSebring and the House budget chair man in an email. I know the gover nor has conducted a thorough and thoughtful review and I look forward to seeing our budget signed into law tomorrow. The governor in his budget mes sage a year ago warned that there were programs that could get vetoed in 2012 if there werent clear stan dards in place that measured how the money was being spent. He also had repeatedly said since then that he wants to limit state borrowing. Scott will also have to make a decision on whether to keep in place more than $33 million intended for a 12th state university pushed by Sen. J.D. Alexander, R-Lake Wales. Alexander has sponsored a sepa rate bill to transform a branch cam pus of the University of South Florida in Lakeland into this new school but there are calls for Scott to veto the bill. But Alexander maintains that if Scott vetoes the stand-alone bill then the money in the budget will be lost and USFs current branch campus would get no money at all. reapply for a license through the city planning department. He said Maeweather would be charged no addi tional fees for application. Councilman George Ward made a motion for Maeweathers license suspen sion to be con tinued until May. Maeweather was also asked to submit a new application for a business license. The council approved the motion unani mously. LICENSE From 1A

T he other Washington the state on the left coast is fed up with taxes. That’s a bit surprising considering the liberal outpost happily cast its 11 electoral votes for Barack Obama and hasn’t sided with a Republican in nearly three decades. The same public that keeps selecting tax-happy lawmakers also endorses bal-lot measures to prevent them from extracting yet more money from the populace. The contradiction is instructive. On Tuesday, citizen activists got to work circulating peti-tions for a fifth initiative mea-sure that would impose a two-thirds supermajority require-ment on the Washington state legislature for passage of any bill that increases taxes. The same language has been placed before voters on four previous occasions since 1993, and they’ve approved it every time most recently in 2010 by a crushing 28-point margin. Anti-tax warriors are bringing it back again in November because, unlike other states, Washington keeps initiatives on the books for just two years before politicians are free to set aside the public will. That’s exactly what Olympia did when the clock ran out on the 2007 referendum. Without the supermajority requirement holding it in check, the legisla-ture imposed $6.7 billion in tax hikes over 10 years, including a special levy on affordable beer that exempted the fancy microbrews and wines favored by trendy leftists. “The les-son we learned from that is you just can’t give these guys a chance to suspend the law in the third year,” initiative sponsor Tim Eyman told The Washington Times. “You just can’t allow them that window of opportunity.” They won’t have a window this year if Mr. Eyman secures the 300,000 signatures he will need to qualify for the ballot. That shouldn’t be much of a problem, as the legislature is doing its best to help him out. Last month, the state House of Representatives began working on bills that would impose $10 billion worth of new taxes, an amount more than sufficient to emphasize the importance of acting every two years. “The farther back the vote was, the easier it is for Olympia to ignore it,” Mr. Eyman explained. His measure is likely to be adopted again because liber-als are just as tapped out in this economy as the rest of us. They feel the pinch of pump-ing $4.14 a gallon gas into their Toyota Priuses. They’re wal-loped by the cost of fair-trade coffee at Starbucks. Even Mr. Obama has expressed alarm at the price of arugula at Whole Foods lately. This explains why trendy lefty states are willing to embrace restraint on the government’s appetite for tak-ing more of their money. This Evergreen State story offers an important lesson for the rest of the country. Squeamish Republicans, par-ticularly in the Senate, find the lure of compromise hard to resist. They are attracted to empty rhetoric about “bal-anced” approaches that involve real tax hikes and imaginary spending cuts. They ought to reject these deals with confi-dence, knowing voters in the most liberal of states have had enough. Tax revoltin the ‘other’Wash. ONE OPINION J ust this week, several brand-new reasons have emerged for repealing the Affordable Care Act, better known as ObamaCare. Like proper, government-designed straitjackets, they come in three sizes: hefty, huge and humon-gous. The hefty reason to repeal ObamaCare arrived just in time for the April 16 tax-filing dead-line. As Sam Baker reported Monday in The Hill, “The Obama administration is quietly diverting roughly $500 million to the IRS to help implement the president’s healthcare law.” That’s right. Team Obama is handing the Internal Revenue Service one half of a $1 billion implementation fund super-vised by the Health and Human Services Department. This money will help the IRS hire 300 employees to oversee the indi-vidual mandate currently before the Supreme Court. These new IRS agents also would handle ObamaCare’s $22.2 billion in new taxes on drug companies and $60.1 billion in new taxes on health insurers. The IRS also has asked Congress to finance 537 other new staffers to admin-ister ObamaCare’s subsidies for low-income patients. The huge reason to repeal ObamaCare arose Tuesday in a study called “The Fiscal Consequences of the Affordable Care Act.” As I recently pro-posed, ObamaCare should be redubbed the Unaffordable Care Act. “I will not sign it if it adds one dime to the deficit, now or in the future, period,” Obama promised a joint session of Congress on September 9, 2009. Alas, this is yet another sad float in Obama’s disappointing parade of shattered promises. “Over the years 2012-21, the ACA (ObamaCare) is expected to add at least $340 billion and as much as $530 billion to fed-eral deficits while increasing federal spending by more than $1.15 trillion.” So concludes Dr. Charles Blahous in his fastidious, 52-page monograph for the free-market Mercatus Center. Blahous, who earned a Ph.D. in computational quantum chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley, is a veteran entitlements expert. In October 2009, Obama appointed Blahous to the board of the Social Security Trust Fund. “The enactment of the ACA has seriously worsened a feder-al fiscal outlook that was already untenable over the long term,” Blahous found. “The ACA both increases a federal commit-ment to health care spending that was already unsustainable under prior law and would exac-erbate projected federal deficits relative to prior law. This is an unambiguous conclusion.” The humongous reason to repeal ObamaCare is that it engorges America’s unfunded liabilities. Jeff Sessions, the Senate Budget Committee’s top Republican, asked his staff to calculate ObamaCare’s long-term unfunded liability. Please be seated. That figure is $17 trillion. This surpasses today’s $15.6 trillion national debt by 9 percent. Sessions’ analysts did not hallucinate this number. As the Alabaman explained March 29 on the Senate floor, “My staff used the models that are used by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and worked diligently to come up with a fig-ure.” They spent three months to determine how much more “money we don’t have but that we are committed to spend” and relied on “the administration’s own optimistic assumptions and claims about the cost of the law.” “I was floored by what we discovered,” Sessions said. “This health law adds an entirely new obligation -one we cannot pay for -and puts the entire financ-ing of the United States govern-ment in jeopardy.” From Solicitor General Donald Verrilli’s tongue-tied defense of the Unaffordable Care Act before the Supreme Court, to Obama’s chilling slap at the court’s judicial review of his signature law, to its rocket-like cost curve, ObamaCare increasingly deserves to be unplugged. If the court does not dropkick ObamaCare into the Potomac, the American people need to dropkick Obama back to Chicago and elect a new pres-ident and members of Congress who will speed ObamaCare the way of the iron lung. $17 trillion more reasons to repeal ‘ObamaCare’ LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor:I believe that most of the people in America are appalled at the destruction that our fed-eral government has reduced our great country to under President Obama’s obsession for power. His driving force is to destroy democracy, Christianity and reduce our country to socialism. Obama is fearlessly working to destroy Christianity in America. He and the other liberals are doing everything in their power to silence the airways of anything to do with religion and/or democracy. In countries like Iran and China it is referred to as, “government controlled radio and TV.” Wake up America, this is exactly what the Obama administration and the liberals are seeking to do to us! As we daily sink deeper into the destruction of our freedoms, and the degradation of immoral-ity we can only blame ourselves! Good decent people have sat back and watched it happen. People blindly go the polls and elect and re-elect people that are self-serving and corrupt. When are we going to stop believing the hypocrisy that so many of our politicians throw at us and watch for ourselves what they are actually doing, what issues they support, and how they vote? We should always apply the old adage that talk is cheap, but actions speak louder than words. Obama has exploited the American taxpayers and bank-rupted our country for his own personal advantage. He has wasted billions of dollars in the last three and one-half (3 1/2) years; much of it went to his supporters and the selling of political favors. Enough is enough. It has got to stop. He refuses to allow the Canadians to pump oil into the United States. He has blocked the opportunity for thousands of new jobs for Americans. President Obama would prefer that we be forced to buy fuel from our enemies. Our government has always been inundated with fraud and corruption. We hear about mega millions of dollars in Medicare and Medicaid fraud each year. The federal government has totally failed to cope with this huge waste of tax dollars. How can the government have any expectations of controlling Obamacare? Obama’s socialist government will be required to expand the federal payrolls by billions and there will be mega billions of dollars in Obamacare fraud. A total waste at the tax-payers’ expense. Whether a Republican, Democrat or Independent there is no way any God-fearing Christian can vote for Barack Obama and his anti-Christian agenda this November. Wake up America; it is time to stand up for our Lord, democracy and our values. Think of the future of our children and grandchil-dren; stand up and say that our forefathers did not die in vain.

BY E-MAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com T raffic and highway-safety experts are perhaps too polite to say so, but the key to safer motoring and less congestion is to take the driver out of the equa-tion. These experts see the day 10 to 20 years off -sooner if the federal government mandates the devices -when cars will be able to “talk” to each other so that their on-board computers know the location, speed and direction of all the vehicles around them. And they will be equipped to take corrective action, even before the driver knows there’s a problem. By communicating with cars far ahead in traffic or out of sight around a curve, they can anticipate sudden traffic stop-pages or icy road conditions. The cars would be equipped with short-range transmitters updating information 10 times per second over dedicated bandwidth based on cameras, radars and sensors. The Texas Transportation Institute estimates the devices could cut highway fatalities and injuries in half, eliminating billions in medical bills and col-lision repairs. Nearly half of the nation’s 6 million crashes a year are eminently avoidable rear-end collisions. The NHTSA is testing the technology on 3,000 cars in Ann Arbor, Mich. As useful as the devices may be for safety purposes, they may be equally useful in what one official called “congestion management,” regulating the speed, interval and routes of cars to avoid traffic jams. Not to unfairly single out Washington, D.C., but such a device on a car on the capital’s notorious Beltway may register a car 3 feet in front of yours, another 3 feet behind and one 3 feet on either side. And none of you are moving faster than a walking pace and probably won’t be for another 20 or 30 minutes.

OBITUARIES expedition that kind of goes along the path that is the best opportunity of least resistance for a wide ranging animal, said biologist Guthrie, whose specialty is bears. The team is funded by a list of spon sors and partners including National Geographic, contributor of $20,000. I think we are at a kind of very unique moment in time in that two years ago I dont think we could have done this walk, Ward said. Ward called the trek a multi-modal expedition with the methods of travel being divided between hiking, paddling and mountain biking. Its been physically challenging for sure, Ward said. If all we had to do was move 13 miles a day that would still be hard but then we have the pressure of try ing to get pictures out, to do interviews. The team is followed by a trailer that carries necessary equipment to complete the journey as well as the tools to broad cast stories and images to the country. Its a pretty plugged-in expedition, the logistical stuff with the technology is pretty impressive, assistant filmmaker Joe Davenport said. The culmination of the project will be a two-hour documentary film scheduled to air on PBS in 2013. Hundreds of photographs, audio recordings and hours of video have been collected along the path. Weekly epi sodes, around one minute in length, have been broadcast along the journey as well. Theres tremendous opportunity to take the momentum behind this expedi tion, the places weve seen and the actual products that come from it in terms of video and photography and audio stories into something greater, Dimmitt said. While traversing through Florida ter rain, the expedition team has had the opportunity to become closely acquainted with the variety of ecosystems in the state. Guthrie expressed this most passion ately saying he was seduced by every river. Stoltzfus recounted his favorite scenes from the trip, white pelicans floating on a lake, an enormous flock of roseate spoonbill. I have developed a pretty long list of places I want to revisit because our top priority is to be an ambassador for the corridor idea and to get from place to place when we say we are going to be there so that means sometimes you dont get to linger, to wait for the light, Ward said. All four explorers expressed hope for the states ecosystems after experiencing its natural wonders firsthand. I read Florida headlines every day. For the past two years its been very upsetting to see your state unraveling a lot of excel lent conservation work. But after this trek it would be impossible not to be hopeful, Dimmitt said to the crowd of students and conservationists in attendance. With only a few days left of the 100-day trip, the team is beginning to wind down and prepare for their Earth Day finale at Stephen Foster Memorial State Park in the Okefenokee. However, they plan to persevere in their efforts to raise awareness even after they reach their destination. I dont think we have the answer yet. I think that we need to take a little bit of time after this expedition and let that reveal itself in a way. But I have new ideas everyday, Dimmitt said. TEAM: Day 91 of 100-day expedition Continued From Page 1A Firefighters continue strategic burning By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com Firefighters continue to focus on solidi fying containment lines around the County Line fire and burned closed to 2,000 acres Monday to eliminate fuel that fire could use to recharge itself. Most of the fuels are in the southwest section of the fire. Officials said the strategic burn will not increase the acreage of the fire. Everything went according to plan and the fire managers were pleased with how things went today, said Haven Cook, U.S. Forest Service Information officer. The fire is reportedly 65 percent contained after consuming 34,936 acres of land. Officials said about 45 miles of fire line have been constructed to contain the fire, which was started April 5 by a lighten ing strike. The fire line was established using existing roads, trails or firebreaks to ensure an 8-foot to 16-foot-wide fire control line was in place. The goal is to create a 200-foot-wide clear zone around the fire. Smoke has been a major concern with the fire and officials said smoke from the fire will be blowing north into Georgia. Cook said the winds were southerly and they carried the smoke to the northwest towards Waycross on Monday. The incident meteorologist feels the weather is cooperating and doesnt foresee any problems coming up, she said. The winds for Tuesday are expected to be out the southwest at 3-5 mph in the morning and will come more from the south in the afternoon pushing the smoke north towards Georgia. That should make Lake City a little happy and give them a little relief. There are approximately 350 people working on the fire with 32 fire engines, 27 dozers and five helicopters. Redistricting shifts to courtrooms this week TALLAHASSEE The states redis tricting discussions shift this week from the Florida Capitol to a pair of court rooms in Tallahassee. On Wednesday, Circuit Judge Terry Lewis will begin a hearing on challenges to the Republican-led Legislatures redis tricting map for Floridas 27 congressio nal seats. Lewis was scheduled to begin the hear ing Monday, but he postponed it. On Friday, the Florida Supreme Court will hear arguments on lawmakers sec ond attempt to draw state Senate districts. The justices have approved a 120-seat House map, but they rejected lawmakers initial plan for the 40-district Senate. In both cases, Democrats and a coali tion of three groups that backed new anti-gerrymandering standards contend lawmakers violated those requirements. The Fair Districts standards include a ban on intentionally drawing districts to favor incumbents and political parties. Associated Press

I guess my biology degree kicked in a little bit.” Singing religious songs as he trudged along the scorching pavement, the native Kenyan — a per-manent resident of the United States — retook the lead from Levy Matebo in the final mile to cross the finish line in 84.8-degree temperatures with a time of 2 hours, 12 minutes, 40 seconds. It was almost 10 minutes behind the world best established here a year ago by Geoffrey Mutai and the second-slowest Boston vic-tory since 1985. Mutai, who was hoping a repeat victory would earn him a spot on the Kenyan Olympic team, dropped out after 18 miles with stomach cramps. Sharon Cherop won the women’s race to com-plete the Kenyan sweep, outkicking Jemima Jelagat Sumgong to win by 2 seconds in 2:31:50. The women’s winner was decided by a sprint down Boylston Street for the fifth consecutive race — all of them decided by 3 seconds or less. Cherop, who was also hoping to be selected for the Kenyan Olympic team, was third at the world championships and third in Boston last year. “This time around, I was really prepared,” she said. “Last time the race went so fast and I didn’t know I was about to finish. I didn’t know the course well and I didn’t know the finish line was coming.” Matebo finished 26 seconds behind Korir, and Bernard Kipyego was third as Kenyans swept the podi-um in both genders. Jason Hartmann, of Boulder, Colo., was in fourth place and the top American. the bleeding,” Shields said. “We had a rough three games and they were hot. They were swinging the bats pretty well.” Boston had a chance to tie it in the ninth when Shields (2-0) left after walk-ing Dustin Pedroia. Fernando Rodney got his fourth save in four opportunities when he retired Adrian Gonzalez on a groundout that sent Pedroia to second, walked David Ortiz intentionally, then got Cody Ross on a called third strike. Ross slammed his helmet and argued with home-plate umpire Larry Vanover that the last two pitches should have been balls. The only run came when Daniel Bard (0-2) walked Evan Longoria on four pitches with the bases load-ed in the seventh. The traditional Patriots’ Day home game began at 11:04 a.m. The holiday observed in Massachusetts and Maine marks Paul Revere’s ride and the battles of Lexington and Concord in 1775. Maddon got his 500th win as a manager, all with Tampa Bay. “I just happen to be the steward of this group,” he said. “Better baseball play-ers make you a lot smarter manager.” Gators hoop star Schintzius diesAssociated PressTAMPA — Former University of Florida basketball star Dwayne Schintzius, who also played in the NBA, died after a two-year battle against cancer. He was 43. Relatives say Schintzius died Sunday at a Tampa hospital following com-plications from a failed bone marrow transplant. Schintzius began treatment for leukemia in 2010. The 7-foot-2 center played for the Gators from 1987-1990, helping Florida to its first three NCAA Tournament appearances. He is Florida’s sixthhighest scorer with 1,624 points. Schintzius was on the 1989 team that won the first SEC championship for the Gators. He was coached at Brandon High by Lake City native Frank Vining. Schintzius was drafted 24th overall by the San Antonio Spurs in 1990. He also played for the Kings, Nets, Pacers, Clippers and Celtics during an eight-year professional career.

DEAR ABBY: I’m a 43year-old veteran of the grocery industry. I am also an associate of one of the premier supermarkets in the country, and I disagree with your response to “Chicago Clipper” (Feb. 18)! Coupons are a necessary evil and are gra-ciously accepted, but they create an abundance of work for retailers. It takes countless hours of sorting, logging, filling out forms, mailing and receiving to be reimbursed for the face value of the coupon. This is hardly a benefit to the grocer. The abuse and fraud associated with coupons adds up into millions of dollars. When a customer leaves one on a shelf for the next shopper, it usually ends up on the floor. So we now have a slick surface that someone can slip on and fall. When they are placed on an item in the dairy or meat case, they inevitably fall to the bot-tom and clog the drains, which causes water back-ups, not to mention it’s trash we must fish out. By leaving an unwanted coupon on a store shelf for the next customer, Chicago Clipper is NOT “paying it forward.” She’s adding to the problem. So, please, folks, keep your coupons in your purse, wallet, pocket or coupon book until you get to the checkout line. -FLORIDA BUTCHER DEAR FLORIDA BUTCHER: Thank you for pointing out to my read-ers and me some of the problems coupons may create. Your sentiments were repeated by many retailers. However, other shoppers and retailers offered suggestions that may help to eliminate the problem, including: cou-pon exchanges, donating them to the military, post-ing them on Freecycle, Craigslist or Facebook, etc. Read on: DEAR ABBY: I am a coupon user. I am also a grocery store employee. I constantly have to pick up coupons left by customers who are “paying it for-ward” or “being generous.” Not only are they a safety hazard, but they make our store look unkempt. We pride ourselves in main-taining a high standard of appearance. We actually clean up more coupons than those we redeem. Why not hand the extra coupons to your checker and ask that they be offered to the next cus-tomer? As for litterbugs who leave expired cou-pons laying around, every check stand is equipped with a garbage can, and an employee will be more than happy to throw out your trash if you ask. -STORE MANAGER IN MONTANA ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I’m a widow with a 20-year-old car and I accidentally smashed in its front end. When I got home and my neighbor saw what had happened, he spent his next weekend at a wreck-age yard buying all the necessary replacements. The following weekend he reassembled my car to perfection. Would he take any money for his efforts? No! Abby, there are wonderful people in this world and he is certainly one of them. And incidentally, he is a Navy captain on active duty. -LEE IN SAN DIEGO DEAR LEE: So your guardian angel wears a Navy uniform! He’s not only an officer and a gentleman, but also a master mechanic. You are one lucky lady, and he is a sweetheart. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t limit possibili-ties. Think outside the box and try doing things dif-ferently. It’s up to you to set a new standard that addresses past problems in order to find future solu-tions. Love is highlighted, but secret affairs must be avoided. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Kick-start and initiate, but most of all, participate. Make your point clear by stepping into the spotlight and sharing your con-cerns, ideas and solutions. You will draw attention that can lead to bigger opportunities and fabulous new connections. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll be disappointed if you count on others to do things for you. Focus your energy on developing your own plans and execut-ing them strategically to your own specifications. The fewer people involved in your affairs, the better. ++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Do your job a little differently and you will inspire originality in others as well. Your abil-ity to relay information and share your thoughts will resonate with those striving to make improve-ments. Give-and-take will lead to greater opportuni-ties. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Stick to your budget. This is not the time to be indul-gent in any way. Simplicity and originality will be key to standing out in a crowd. You can make reforms and alter your direction if you express your thoughts. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take better care of your health and emotional well-being. Getting run-down or neglecting mild symptoms will lead to a longer recovery and a lack of productivity. Take care of both emotional and physical problems immedi-ately. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A change in the way someone treats you can be expected. Stay on top of what’s required of you and keep an eye on someone who has made a commit-ment in return. Give-and-take and honest commu-nication will be essential. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take the initiative and make changes at home that will help you engage in neglected proj-ects. It’s important to be surrounded by the tools, atmosphere or inspiration you require in order to develop, present and pro-mote your goals. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Believe in your ability and experi-ence. You can expect to be offered empty promises. Unreliable people will lead to problems with paperwork that must be completed before you con-tinue. Work only with the people you know well and trust. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stick close to home. Expand your interests, but first get your paperwork up to date. A chance to improve your surroundings or to invest in a space that allows you to take on a new project will pay off. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Getting in touch with old friends or reviving old interests will also bring about greater opportuni-ties for love, or at least help you make a decision regarding your personal direction and partnerships. Make creative changes to your surroundings. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keep things mellow, no matter who you are dealing with. Disputes will arise if you are stubborn, unrelenting or critical when dealing with your family, peers or your lover. Avoid emotional encoun-ters. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

The facility will be located at latitude 30o8'16" N, longitude 82o40'26" Won 259 SWKicklighter Ter,Lake City, Florida 32024 in Columbia County. The intent to issue and application file are available for public inspec-tion during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holi-days, at the Department's Northeast District Office, 7825 Baymeadows Way,Suite B200, Jacksonville, Flor-ida 32256-7577, at phone number (904)256-1700.The Department will issue the permit with the attached conditions unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, within fourteen days of receipt of no-tice. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below. Aperson whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's pro-posed permitting decision may peti-tion for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The pe-tition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (re-ceived by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request an extension of the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the end of the time period for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be filed within four-teen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. Section 120.60(3), Florida Stat-utes, however, also allows that any person who has asked the Depart-ment for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the ad-dress indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request for an exten-sion of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to re-quest an administrative determina-tion (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another par-ty) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28106.205, Florida Administrative Code.Apetition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's ac-tion is based must contain the fol-lowing information, as indicated in Rule 28-106.201, Florida Adminis-trative Code: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or identification number, if known; (b) The name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner's representa-tive, if any, which shall be the ad-dress for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an ex-planation of how the petitioner's sub-stantial interests will be affected by the determination; (c) Astatement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the De-partment's decision; (d) Astatement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) Aconcise statement of the ulti-mate facts alleged, including the spe-cific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Department's proposed action; (f) Astatement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends re-quire reversal or modification of the Department's proposed action; and (g) Astatement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the Department to take with respect to the Department's proposed action. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Department's final ac-tion may be different from the posi-tion taken by it in this notice. Per-sons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final deci-sion of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. In addition to requesting an adminis-trative hearing, any petitioner may elect to pursue mediation. The elec-tion may be accomplished by filing with the Department a mediation agreement with all parties to the pro-ceeding (i.e., the applicant, the De-partment, and any person who has filed a timely and sufficient petition for a hearing). The agreement must contain all the information required by Rule 28-106.404, Florida Admin-istrative Code. The agreement must be received by the Clerk in the Of-fice of General Counsel of the De-partment at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Talla-hassee, Florida 32399-3000, within ten days after the deadline for filing a petition, as set forth above. Choos-ing mediation will not adversely af-fect the right to a hearing if media-tion does not result in a settlement. As provided in Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, the timely agreeLegalment of all parties to mediate will toll the time limitations imposed by Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, for holding an administra-tive hearing and issuing a final order. Unless otherwise agreed by the par-ties, the mediation must be conclud-ed within sixty days of the execution of the agreement. If mediation results in settlement of the administrative dispute, the Department must enter a final order incorporating the agree-ment of the parties. Persons seeking to protect their substantial interests that would be affected by such a modified final decision must file their petitions within fourteen days of receipt of this notice, or they shall be deemed to have waived their right to a proceeding under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. If mediation terminates without set-tlement of the dispute, the Depart-ment shall notify all parties in writ-ing that the administrative hearing processes under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, remain available for disposition of the dis-pute, and the notice will specify the deadlines that then will apply for challenging the agency action and electing remedies under those two statutes.05532116April 17, 2012 020Lost & Found LOSTFAMILY PET Adult male yorkie.
