By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA standing room only crowd of more than 300 gathered at Florida Gateway College Tuesday afternoon for the ribbon cutting and dedication cer-emony for the schools new library and media center. The Wilson S. Rivers Library and Media Center officially opened with the passing of the last book, the Bible, to the new facil-ity following a dedication service that lasted close to 45 minutes. Its a dream come true to finally be able to open the new library and media center, said Dr. Chuck Hall, Florida Gateway College president. Weve waited so long to get into it and now were in here all we can think about is how we can use it to serve people, provide their needs and get them involved. Its really the library of the people and we want the people to come use it. Construction and work on the 38,707-square-foot facilty began in November 2009. The $8.5 milllion facility is the first new building on campus in nearly 20 years. Local officials, students, college trustees and resi-dents attended the service, which included library tours. Randy Hanna, Chancellor of the Florida College System, served as the events guest speaker and spoke about the history of the FGC campus and how the school has grown in the six-county area it serves, as well as the important role community plays in having a successful school. Community is an integral part of Florida Gateway College, he said. Hannas remarks were followed by comments from Ivan Arevalo, FGC Student Government President, who said the library will provide a ref-uge for students from their daily lives. Chuck Brannan, FGC Board of Trustees chair-man, provided the final comments as he spoke of the process to get the library built and its poten-tial impact on the commu-nity and FGC students. This place is both wired and wireless, he said. I hope it will become a con-fluence of academic life.

Lawmakers weigh in on redistrictingBreakfast sparks dialog with local delegation.By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comCommunity members got the chance to meet face-to-face with state and feder-al representatives Tuesday morning for the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce annual Legislative Breakfast. The breakfast is one of the Chambers mainstay spring events where elect-ed national and state offi-cials are invited to join a conversation with the com-munity, said Todd Wilson, Chamber president. The audience, gathered at the County Club at Lake City, was able to ask the elected officials questions. Sen. Charlie Dean, R-Inverness, said the main issue this year is redistrict-ing. Although the commit-tee started last summer, districts are not yet final-ized, he said. The senates second redistricting plan has not yet been approved by the Florida Supreme Court. The first plan was rejected last month by justices, cit-ing eight districts and dis-trict renumbering as being in violation. The court affirmed the House plan unanimously.

Man jailed in string of AC theftsBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comAn OBrien man, arrested Friday, faces felony charges in connection with a string of residential air conditioner unit thefts in central Columbia County, according to information released by authorities Monday afternoon. Matthew Steven Thomas, 32, of 24454 County Road 49, OBrien, was arrested Friday and charged with four counts of grand theft, four counts of burglary and dealing in stolen property in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $180,000 bond. According to the Columbia County Sheriffs Office, depu ties have been investigating sev eral air conditioner thefts from residences in central Columbia County. Sgt. Ed Seifert, Columbia County Sheriffs Office public information offi cer, said four of the thefts were similar in nature and deputies believed the same suspect was committing the thefts. The thefts occurred from April 4 April 13. Seifert said concerned citi zens worked closely with author ities to identify the suspects responsible for the thefts and based on their information, Lt. Pete Spurlock was able to find a location where the suspect dismantled air conditioner units. When Spurlock arrived at the location he discovered the suspect actively dismantling an air conditioner. Detective Jimmy Watson assisted in the investigation and learned that the suspect had been selling the stolen air conditioner parts to local secondary metals recyclers. Watson determined Thomas had stolen four air conditioner units from local homes. Thomas was arrested without inci dent around 5 p.m. Friday and taken to jail. We dont expect more arrests in the case, however, as the investiga tion moves forward there maybe more charges filed, Seifert said.Thomas Wanee Fest set to start at music parkBy HANNAH O.

AROUND FLORIDA Janitor finds body in Miami college bedroomKENDALL A janitor on his early-morning rounds found a body in a bathroom at Miami Dade College. College officials say a man in his 60s took a jog around the campus early Tuesday. He was found inside the bathroom, still in his running clothes. The Miami Herald reports a Miami-Dade Fire Rescue crew could not revive the man. Police did not release his name. College officials sent out an email to notify students and faculty of a medical emergency that could cause some disruptions to class schedules and operations. Police say they are investigating, but foul play is not suspected.Principal accused of FCAT material tamperingMIAMI The principal of a Miami charter school has been accused of tampering with materials for the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. The Miami Herald reports Ramz Academy principal Julio Cabrera allegedly opened sealed test booklets, took handwritten notes on the questions and distributed study guides to teachers. School attorney Carmen Calzon says Cabrera, a teacher, and an employee charged with overseeing the tests administration have been suspended. Thousands of children across Florida are taking the annual reading and math assessment this week. The students at Ramz Academy in Miamis Little Havana will take the exam as soon as new test materials are available. Both Miami-Dade Public Schools and Ramz Academy have begun investigations to look into the alleged tampering.Man gets life in prison for fatal robberyJACKSONVILLE A northeast Florida man convicted of killing a former Marine during a robbery has been sentenced to life in prison. A Duval County judge sentenced 23-year-old Lucious Maurice Jackson on Monday. He was convicted last week of first-degree murder and attempted armed robbery. Authorities say Jackson was trying to rob Gregory Eugene Chisholm at a Jacksonville gas station in April 2010 when Chisholm threw a handful of change in his attackers face. Broward man charged with sending powderFORT LAUDERDALE Authorities say a South Florida man mailed envelopes containing a powdery substance to the Broward Sheriffs Office and the countys state courthouse. The U.S. Attorney Office in Miami announced Tuesday that 26-year-old Tarvess David Taylor has been charged with five counts of mailing hoax threats. He faces up to five years in prison for each charge. Officials say the sheriffs office had to be closed last October while HAZMAT teams responded to collect the powdery substance and ensure the safety of the facilities. It wasnt immediately clear if Taylor had an attorney.Appeals court upholds DUI case sentenceBRADENTON Authorities say an appellate court has refused to overturn the 10-year prison sentence for a Bradenton high school football coach who was convicted in a DUI crash that killed his best friend. The Bradenton HeraldTribune reports the Second District Court of Appeal in Lakeland upheld the sentence handed down by a circuit judge in Manatee County. John Hunter has been out on bail while the appeal was pending.

Levon Helm, a former member of The Band, is in the final stages of his long battle with cancer. A message posted Tuesday on the 71-year-old musicians website by his family says Levon is in the final stages of his battle with cancer. Helm was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1998 and the illness reduced his voice to a whisper. But he still continued to sing on albums and at rollicking concerts at his Woodstock home. Helm was a key member of The Band and lent his distinctive Southern voice to classics like The Weight and The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.Copper heiress jewelry brings in $21M at Christies auctionNEW YORK Signed pieces of Cartier and Tiffany jewelry belonging to a late Montana copper mining heiress have sold for nearly $21 million at a New York City auction. Christies said Tuesdays sale from the estate of Huguette Clark had caught the attention of collectors worldwide. The star of the collection, a rare pink cushion-cut 9-carat diamond ring, sold for nearly $16 million. The auction house had estimated the collection of 17 pieces would bring between $9 million to $12 million. The reclusive Clark was 104 when she died last year at New Yorks Beth Israel Medical Center.Bond novels to be reissued by American publisher AmazonNEW YORK James Bond has a new American publisher: Amazon. com. The online giant has acquired rights from the late Ian Flemings estate for North American rights to his classic spy novels in paper and e-book editions, including Dr. No and From Russia With Love. The books will be available from Amazon as of this summer. Independent stores and Barnes & Noble Inc. have usually declined to stock works published by Amazon, a top retail competitor.Universal Music wins union support to acquire EMILOS ANGELES Universal Music Group has won the qualified support of two North American artists unions for its proposed $1.9 billion acquisition of the recorded music division of the U.K.s EMI Group Ltd. The unions gave their conditional backing in letters sent last week to the Federal Trade Commission. In their letters, SAG-AFTRA and the American Federation of Musicians said they would support the deal if there were adequate mechanisms to ensure that Universal complies with its commitment to re-invest in artist development. EMI is home to the recorded music of The Beatles, as well as American artists such as Norah Jones and The Smashing Pumpkins. Universal artists include Rihanna, Lady Gaga and U2. It has been wrenching to watch EMI wither as its former private equity owner Terra Firma cut costs, wrote Kim Roberts Hedgpeth, SAG-AFTRAs co-national executive director. She urged regulators to examine Universals commitments to artist development.Country star Jones postpones shows due to health issuesNASHVILLE, Tenn. George Jones needs more time to recover from a recent upper respiratory infection. The 80-year-old country music singer is postponing his upcoming shows on April 20 and 21 in Minnesota and South Dakota. A statement from Jones publicist, Kirt Webster, says doctors have advised Jones to continue resting at his Tennessee home for another week. The shows will be rescheduled. Jones was scheduled to perform Friday at Shooting Star Casino, Hotel and Event Center in Mahnomen, Minn. That concert has been rescheduled for Nov. 8.

With public meetings and the ability to submit district maps online, the court cant say the citizens werent involved, he said. Rep. Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City, said the House got redistricting right the first time and her district will now be more homogeneous, as it includes Columbia, Suwannee, Hamilton and Baker counties. It looks like Im now queen of corrections alley, Porter said. And thats fine with me. Dean said he took a stand against the privatization of prisons. The bill that would have privatized 27 prisons in the state was defeated February in the Senate, where it divided Republicans. The House version of the bill died in appropriations committee in March. Dean said he thought it was wrong to privatize Floridas prisons and will continue to stand against it. North Florida residents especially would be hurt by privatizing prisons, he said. Sen. Steve Oelrich, R-Gainesville, said he voted against the privatized prison bill because he is not willing to farm out prisons under the guise of saving money. Citing his 14 years as Alachua County Sheriff, Oelrich said he believes prisons are the governments responsibility. Dean said he also opposed the parent trigger bill, which would have enabled parents to demand sweeping changes at low-performing schools. Converting the school to an independently run charter school would have been among the options. Folks, thats wrong, he said. Our tax money pays for the schools and we have to take ownership of failing schools, not turn them over to private companies, he said. This is a big one and its coming again and again, he said. Oelrich said he also voted against the parent trigger bill. Im not willing to give up on public education in the state of Florida. Porter said she would reintroduce a bill that would require adjoining water management districts to work together and consider the effects on minimum flow levels when issuing a groundwater withdrawal permits. Were losing our water over here, she said. The bill was approved unanimously in the House, but it was not brought to a vote in the Senate. Senate leadership did not want the bill heard on the Senate floor, Porter said in March. Dean sponsored the bill in the Senate and Oelrich supported the bill, she said. Dean said he supports Florida Leaders Organized for Water (FLOW), a coalition of elected and appointed officials focused on water regional water supplies. Ive never seen that many county commissioners come together and agree, he said. Water is the greatest issue facing Florida and we have to take care of it, he said. When asked by an audience member why Porters water bill did not come up for a vote in the Senate, Dean did not answer the question. Instead, he continued talking about the struggles the Senate has faced with redistricting. Oelrich said he was one of a few Republicans to vote against the budget this year, citing favored projects in the midst of cuts to state universities, social services and prisons. I thought it had way too many turkeys, Oelrich said. Gov. Rick Scott signed into law Tuesday a $70 billion state budget and vetoed $142.7 million in spending. Oelrich said this years legislative session was one of the more contentious ones hes experienced. He said his votes were based on conscience, which consequently means going against party leadership sometimes. Oelrich also made it clear that he is running for U.S. Congress. Porter said Tuesday she was glad to sponsor the bill giving families three days of tax-free school shopping in August. Porter said she made sure local counties and the Suwannee River Water Management District received Payments in Lieu of Taxes, which help offset losses in property taxes due to nontaxable lands in their boundaries. She said local jobs maintaining forestry land depend on those payments. Lynne Bannister, director of outreach for U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, said Nelson has hosted several town hall meetings during the Easter recess. Bannister said rural areas are of the most concern to Nelson because the areas do not have as much job diversity. Bannister said Nelson is proud of the Restore Act which would direct money into Gulf Coast states affected by the BP oil spill, she said. The money would provide money in Florida for Gulf counties, whose tourism businesses took a hit after the spill. She said the act passing the Senate is a bright, shining moment of bipartisanship. Nelson continues to oppose drilling for oil off Floridas coast, recognizing the need for military training spaces, she said. Ashley Cook, staff assistant for U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, said Rubio attended the Summit of the Americas last weekend and met with South American leaders. Cook said residents having trouble with federal agencies should contact Rubios office for help. Nathan Riska, district representative for U.S. Rep. Ander Crenshaw, said Crenshaw has worked to tighten the governments budget, just as families have had to tighten their own. Riska said Crenshaw continues to fight to keep Navy ships in Jacksonville. With redistricting, it is probable that Crenshaw will lose Columbia County from his district, Riska said. It was a privilege to serve the county, he said. LAURA HAMPSON/Lake City ReporterSen. Charlie Dean, R-Inverness.LAURA HAMPSON/Lake City ReporterSen. Steve Oelrich, R-Gainesville.TDC slated to present sports upgrade budgetBy HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comThe Tourist Development Council will present a proposed budget for improvements of the Southside Recreation Complex to the County Commission special meeting on May 1. TDC board member and local hotel owner Nick Patel advocated the budget, calling tournament play a major industry. The economic impact is huge, Patel said. If somebody wants to talk about return on investment, then you better open up your eyes. The budget divides improvements between the TDC and the county commission with each agency funding over one million dollars in improvements. Collaboratively, these funds will work towards building concession stands, restrooms, improving the playing surface of the fields, upgrading bleachers, replacing lighting, repaving the parking lot and other landscaping projects. A list of optional upgrades will also be presented, including a portable restroom and an air conditioner for the concession facility. The TDC is seeking accreditation from Destination Marketing Association International, a title that would lend prestige to the TDC. If accepted, TDC Director Harvey Campbell said Columbia Countys TDC will be the smallest TDC in the world to be accredited. Several TDC board members took a trip this week to Nations Park, a baseball tournament park in Newberry. Commissioner and TDC board member Scarlet Frisina said she was impressed with the facility but felt the area did not provide enough space for parents to see their children play. Maybe I view things a little different because I am the mother that goes to these places, Frisina said. My son plays baseball right now and I have a daughter and when we go I want to sit behind the plate and watch them bat and watch everything from the infield. They had all their viewing stuff in little tiny boxes at very edges of the outfield way in the corner. Frisina as well as other board members said they were satisfied with the set-up of the Southside Recreation Complex that it better caters to the needs of the local community. Scott signs $69.9B budget, vetoes $142.7MBy GARY FINEOUTAssociated PressST. JOHNS Gov. Rick Scott, using a top-rated elementary school in suburban Jacksonville as a backdrop, signed the states $69.9 billion budget into law Tuesday. Before the signing, the Republican governor also vetoed $142.7 million by eliminating spending items ranging from museums to medical schools sprinkled throughout the budget by the GOP-led Legislature. Scott vetoed less than he did last year, saying lawmakers had heeded his warnings to give him evidence of why the money is needed and what taxpayers would get in return. The governor said, for example, thats why he had decided to spare nearly $4 million for the public television stations after vetoing their money last year. He also kept $5 million for a Sarasota rowing center he previously vetoed because local officials have agreed to repay the state if the project fails to boost sales tax revenue as promised. ORMOND BEACH, Fla. Police say an applicant for a job at a sports bar ended up in jail after she decided to stay for drinks while leaving her 5-year-old daughter unattended for an hour inside her car. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports the woman had three tequila shots at the Pirana Bar and Grille in Ormond Beach after filling out a job application last Friday. According to a police report, a customer came in the bar and announced that a small child was alone in a car parked outside. Police say the woman denied the child was hers. Police say the bartender eventually took away the womans keys until police arrived and arrested her on child neglect charges. The womans mother took custody of the child, who was not injured.

T he prostitution scandal involving U.S. Secret Service agents in Colombia had at least some benefit: It helped eclipse the fact that the Summit of the Americas was largely a failure. Rep. Connie Mack, R-Fla., who led a congres sional delegation, said those shameful activities unfortunately have become a big part of the buzz around the summit. Back in the U.S. they were the only buzz around the sum mit and perhaps a good thing for American diplomacy. The U.S. faced demands that Cuba be included. Leftist-governed Ecuador, Nicaragua and Bolivia boycotted over Cubas absence and threatened to do so again at the next summit, set for 2015 in Panama. Venezuela also was absent, but its president, Hugo Chavez, is seriously ill. President Barack Obama pla cated Cuban-Americans in Florida by refusing to sign a statement calling for Cuba to be invited to the next summit, but he angered another key constituency, orga nized labor, by certifying that Colombia, which had a horren dous record of unsolved murders of union organizers, had met its human rights obligations. The U.S. also came under attack for its war on drugs that participants said contributed to instability and violence fueled by the huge U.S. market. Several nations called for decriminalization. President Otto Perez Molina of Guatemala argued for legalization, regula tion and taxation, which the U.S. opposes. Obama offered the noncommittal response that its wholly appropriate to discuss the issue. In other words, no. A subtext of the summit was that rising economic powers like Brazil and China mean the U.S. is no longer an unchallenged actor in hemispheric affairs. Obama did receive good local press for being the first U.S. president to spend a significant amount of time in Colombia -three days. Somehow back home, that small bit of good news was totally overshadowed by the Secret Service agents. I f youre a lunatic mass murderer, you couldnt pick a much better venue for the crime than Norway. Thats the lesson from the trial that began Monday in Oslo of Anders Breivik, who has admitted to killing eight people in a bomb blast in the capitals downtown and, later that same day, 69 youngsters that he hunted down individually in a youth camp. Breivik admits to the killings. He says he did them in self-defense. He began the first day of his trial by asserting that he did not recognize the jurisdiction of the court because of the gov-ernments support for multicul-turalism and didnt recognize one of the five judges because of her choice of friends. He entered the court, according to one description, smug and smiling and favor ing the court and the specta tors with periodic clenched-fist salutes. Breivik claims to be a resis tance fighter in a far-right, white-supremacist group modeled after a Christian order that fought during the Crusades. As authorities have been able to determine so far, this group exists only in Breiviks head. Two groups of psychiatrists have examined that head, with the milder of the two diagno-ses finding him a paranoid psychotic schizophrenic but still sane enough to stand trial. The other diagnosis said that if Breivik were ever released, he would be highly likely to com-mit similar massacres. According to the London Daily Mail Breivik, rather fittingly, is being held in a former Nazi concentration camp in isolation from the other prison-ers because they would kill him given a chance. His accommodations are considerably better than those accorded the original inmates. He has a suite of three 86-square-foot cells. (An inmate in a U.S. supermax prison typi-cally gets a single 96-square-foot cell and stays in it 23 hours a day with little in the way of diversion.) Breivik sleeps in one cell, works out in another that is equipped with exercise equip-ment and uses the third as an office. It has a computer but no Internet access. He has cable TV with access to 15 channels. The trial is to last 10 weeks and will give Breivik ample opportunity to expand on his wing-nut views. To bolster his case -although its hard to see how -he will call radical Islamists and right-wing extremists to testify on his behalf. If he is sentenced to jail time, he will likely serve his sentence in a prison that sounds like a country club even by Norwegian penal stan dards, according to the Daily Mail -private bathrooms, flatscreen TVs in the bedrooms, personal trainers, even a recording studio and a climb ing wall. He has told his defense law yer his only regret was that the death toll from his killing spree wasnt higher. If he is convicted, the 33-year-old Breivik faces a maximum sentence of 21 years, just a little over three months per victim. Norwaysgentlejustice fora massmurderer ONE OPINION A NOTHER VIEW H ere in Florida, shortsightedness and greed have always guided and motivated our movers and shakers, our leaders. These folks have been responsible for paving over our grasslands, butchering our mangroves, backfilling our swamps, gouging our shore-lines, damming our rivers and bulldozing our trees. Shortsightedness and greed have made Florida -one of the nations most biologically diverse regions -one of its most at-risk ecologically. We are second only to California in the number of animals and plants the federal government has designated as endangered or threatened. Too many Florida leaders, political, business and otherwise, apparently do not care about the essential link between people and their impact on wild species and their natural habitats. Research shows that negative human impact on the environment includes habitat destruction, pollution and the introduction of nonnative and invasive spe-cies of flora and fauna. Most habitat destruction, and subsequent harm to plants and animals, results from develop-ment that is seen as crucial to human progress. But habitat destruction is just as damaging when it is car-ried out for frivolous purposes. The most prominent example of such frivolousness was in a bill introduced during the recent legislative session in Tallahassee. The zoo bill, HB 1117, dubbed the Jurassic Park bill by critics, would have permitted zoos and aquariums to lease state-owned lands to conduct breeding and research on animals such as rhinos, zebras, giraffes and elephants. Many Florida residents love zoos and take their children and grandchildren to them. But few of these residents would vote to permit exotic animals to be bred and allowed to roam on our public lands. We love our wild places and species and are extremely protective of them, as was demonstrated after the zoo bill was introduced by state Rep. Shawn Harrison, a Republican. Gov. Rick Scott vetoed the bill following vigorous oppo-sition led by Defenders of Wildlife. Explaining why he rejected the bill, Scott wrote that it lacks sufficient safe-guards to ensure the protec-tion of state ... lands, native species and habitats. But we should be realistic about the governor and his veto. In the same letter, Scott explained that he had little trou-ble rejecting the bill because he believes state law already allows the governor, Cabinet and the five water management districts to lease state lands for purposes deemed constitu-tional. Forget about science and safety. Is it constitutional? Furthermore, according to the Tampa Bay Times, Harrison said Scott told him personally that the state already has the authority to lease state-owned lands to zoos. It just has not happened -which does not mean it will not happen. Why would the governor assure Harrison of this authority? Apparently feeling triumphant, Harrison said: Im happy ... that weve brought attention to the fact that Florida law already allows this to happen. Then there is Larry Killmar, the Lowry Park Zoo vice president and president of the Florida Association of Zoos, who shepherded the bill to the governors desk. During the legislative session, the Tampa Times reports, Killmar said the association would certainly plot forward to find state land suitable for breeding large herds of exotic animals. While Defenders of Wildlife officials and other environ-mentalists hope the governor keeps herds of exotic animals off state lands, they are right to be vigilant. They believe, for example, that exotic animals roaming state lands would displace native habitats and species. They also fear that ani-mals could escape and threaten human life, and they are con-cerned about the spread of non-native seed and feed and the potential spread of disease. Fortunately, Laurie MacDonald, Florida director for Defenders of Wildlife, has a warning for Killmar and oth-ers: We will be watching very closely any applications for this use. Although the wrongheaded Jurassic Park bill is dead for now, Floridas legendary envi-ronmental shortsightedness is alive and kicking.

BY E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org A mericans who thought Tax Day was bad this year could find it far worse next year. Tuesday happens to be Tax Freedom Day, the date by which taxpayers have earned enough to pay off Uncle Sam and start earn ing for themselves. This occasion will fall even later next year if President Obama succeeds in making the tax code more com plicated and expensive. Mr. Obama has invoked Warren Buffetts name at 49 dif ferent events since mid-August to justify his tax-raising plans. Despite the all-out White House lobbying effort, the presidents allies in the Democratic Senate failed on Monday to get the votes needed to pass the 30 percent tax hike on income over $1 million. The House budget replaces six income brackets with two at lower 10 percent and 25 per-cent rates and cut the corporate rate to 25 percent. Until they have a partner on tax reform in the White House, the best the GOP can do is provide short-term relief. On Thursday, the House will vote on Majority Leader Eric Cantors bill to give companies with fewer than 500 employees a 20 percent tax cut to spur the economy for the 2012 tax year. For the three-quarters of small businesses who file as indi-viduals, this deduction would encourage them to hire now, despite next years uncertainty. When current tax rates expire on Dec. 31, Mr. Obama wants to hike taxes on any profit over $200,000 to almost 40 percent. The one-year deduction would also benefit companies that file corporate taxes. They pay a high of up to 35 percent now, exceeding the developed worlds 25 percent average. According to an analysis by Fiscal Associates, the GOP plan would create 194,000 jobs and boost gross domestic product by $112 billion. That prospect gives voters an important choice in November. They can take a path of lower taxes and more growth, or they can make Tax Day 2013 more painful for everyone.

By Jennifer ChasteenSpecial to the ReporterA cry has been heard from those aspiring weekend warrior garden ers who just cant get their plants to grow. The Master Gardeners and UF/IFAS Columbia County Extension will host a two-day, hands-on workshop that will address the challenges of gardening and landscaping in North Florida. I felt there was a real need for it, weve had so many people ask, said UF/ IFAS Columbia County Extension horticulture agent Nichelle Demorest. Its geared for everybody, but especially for people new to gardening in this area. They may try for a season or two and give up. They cant make it work because they dont understand how to grow things in our soils or climate. The workshop is geared for gardening in our area; North Florida is different from Central and South Florida, she continued. We have a lot of deep sandy soils with shallow clay pockets. We also have the fragile nature of the karst soil system. According to gardenmediagroup.com (a garden trendspotting group) Americans are trending toward gardening issues that Floridians have realized for decades. Trends such as water conservation along with hydroponic gardening, eco-gardening and the pursuit of health and better quality of life have caught the national eye. Edible landscaping is a hot button topic, said Demorest. People sometimes dont realize that a vegetable plant takes the same requirements as a perennial -so why cant you grow it in a formal landscape? We get the most questions about raised bed gardens.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe effort U.S. Forest Service rangers have put into establishing and maintaining a secure perimeter around the County Line fire has been beneficial and earlier this week stopped a new fire in its tracks while increasinf the containment level around the County Line Fire to 75 percent. Officials plan to continue to reinforce containment lines and be alert to spotovers and new fires in the meantime. The County Line fire has burned 34,936 acres. Monday afternoon initial attack crews responded to a new fire on the north side of U.S. 90 at the Baker and Columbia County line which was quickly contained at 1/10 of an acre. It was a railroad fire, where one of the trains car brakes was faulty and throwing sparks which ignited the dry vegetation, said Petra Setlich, public information officer trainee. Fortunately we still had our initial attack teams out there and they are policing the area for up to 10 miles and if they had not caught that we would have had another huge fire on our hands. Setlich said sparks were also thrown in the areas where prescribed burns had been done to eliminate fuels from the county line fire and didnt ignite. Initial attack teams are strategi cally placed around the fire and they monitor the perimeter. If that had not been done that would have been a runaway fire, she said. The amount of personnel working on the County Line fire has also been reduced. There are approximately 304 people working on the fire with 31 fire engines, 27 dozers and five helicopters. Were still working doing the burnout in the center of the fire, Setlich said. Were over 200 feet in the containment line now and the safe zone is considerable. Were working it as safely as possible so spreading is not an issue now. Its not going to jump that 200-foot containment line.Blaze 75% containedFrom staff reportsColumbia County NAACP President John F. Mayo announces the 30th annual Freedom Fund Luncheon on Saturday, April 28, 12 noon, at the Winfield Community Center, located 1324 NW Winfield Street. The semi-formal affair is expected to attract an audience of some 300 persons, including the sheriff, chief of police, Third Circuit Judges, Supt. of Schools, Tax Collector, Supervisor of Elections, the clergy, and a host of others. Keynote speaker is the dynamic Reverend Nelson B. Rivers, III, NAACP Vice President of Stakeholders Relations. Some 30 years ago it was said that the Branch could not host a Luncheon at noon on Saturday at the Holiday Inn. Here we are today, 30 years later, a colossal success. This is the Branchs major fundraiser; President Mayo cordially invites the publics cooperation, participation and attendance. Tickets are $35 each and can be purchased from any NAACP board member. Founded in 1909 by a group of black and white citizens, the NAACP is the nations oldest and largest civil rights organization. Its adult and youth members throughout the United States and the world are premier advocates for civil rights in their communities. Freedom Fund Luncheon is April 28Rivers Associated PressBe happy it seems to be good for your heart. Scientists have long known that Type A personalities and people who are chronically angry, anxious or depressed have a higher risk of heart attacks. Now a Harvard review of the flip side of that psychology concludes that being upbeat and optimistic just may help protect against heart disease. Rather than focusing only on how to lessen heart risks, it might also be useful to focus on how we might bolster the positive side of things, said lead researcher Julia Boehm of the Harvard School of Public Health. Boehm reviewed dozens of studies examining a positive outlook as determined by various psychological measurements on heart health. Optimism in particular seems key, as a number of studies found the most optimistic people had half the risk of a first heart attack when compared to the least optimistic, Boehm said.Positive outlook good for the heart

From staff reports TIM KIRBY /Lake City Reporter Fort White High pitcher Cecile Gomez grips the ball while warming up before Tuesdays game against Interlachen High. Gomez leads Lady Indians to next round By TIM KIRBY email@example.com STARKE Fort White High softball coach Cassie Sparks shuffled her defense for the opening game of the District 5-4A tourna ment. One of the moves put Ali Wrench behind the plate for the first time this year. The new face didnt phase pitcher Cecile Gomez who fired a one-hitter to lead the Lady Indians to a 3-0 win over Interlachen High in Starke on Tuesday. Gomez struck out 10 and the only Rams base runner through six innings was a two-out walk in the second. Leading off the seventh inning, Rebecca Alford laid down a bunt that scooted between Gomez and a diving DKota Cassady at first for a base hit. Sydney Walker then snared a line drive and doubled Alford off first to stop any chance of a comeback. Gomez struck out 19 in the first meeting with Interlachen, but in this third meeting the Rams had learned to lay off the rise ball. I was definitely living on the outside, Gomez said. I was keeping them off balance with my curve ball and was just hitting my spots. We had to live on the outside. We did and it worked. Fort White got singles by Wrench in the first inning and Kayla Williams in the second, and finally broke through to score in the third. Wrench singled with one out and moved to second on a ground ball by Alexa Hatcher. Cassady ripped a double to the gap in leftcenter field to drive in the run. Cassady stole third base and scored on a single by Gomez. Cassady walked to lead off the sixth inning and scored an insurance run. Gomez reached base when the shortstop could not handle a hard ground ball. Shea Chesney delivered a two-out single to score the run. Gomez was thrown out trying to take third base. Wrench was twice throw out on the base paths, but the Lady Indians were under orders. We have practiced being aggressive, Sparks said. When we have somebody on base, everybody knows they are on base. If you sit back and play it safe, you are not going to win games. Being aggressive worked to our advantage. Everybody was pumped up and that is all you can ask for.

Trailing 3-0 in the Columbia honors nine players before game. CHS continued on 3B Lady Tigers punch playoff ticket with 9-0 win against St. Augustine By BRANDON FINLEY email@example.comJACKSONVILLE For about a half inning, the Columbia High softball team had to be feeling a little nervous. Then, the Lady Tigers exploded for four homers and a 9-0 win against St. Augustine High at Atlantic Coast High in Jacksonville on Tuesday. With the win, the Lady Tigers punched a ticket to the playoffs, but Columbia will look for more when it takes on host Atlantic Coast High for the District 4-6A championship at 7 p.m. on Thursday. Taylor Douglass pitched the first inning and picked up the win for the Lady Tigers, but she had to work her way out of a jam to get there. After three first-inning walks, Douglass was on the mound without recording an out and looking not to give up a run. Two ground balls back to second base and Michaela Burton making throws to home to force out the runner gave Douglass a little breathing room. She recorded the final out with another ground ball hit to Kayli Kvistad, who tagged the runner out and the Lady Tigers escaped what would be the biggest threat of the game. We had a little bit of the jitters are first, but we were able to get what we wanted and that was ground balls back at our players, Columbia head coach Jimmy Williams said. The Lady Tigers then got what they wanted at the plate. Senior Payton Sund started off a night full of bombs with a three-run shot with two strikes and two outs in the bottom of the first to score Douglass and Hollianne Dohrn for a 3-0 lead. The home runs kept com ing throughout the game. Kvistad added a solo shot to lead off the third inning and the Lady Tigers would add another run before the inning was over. With the bases loaded, Brandy Morgan drew a walk to bring in Sund for the 5-0 lead. Columbias third homer TIGERS continued on 3B

Fourth place went to Garrett Shay at +7 and fifth to Jerry Perkins at +6. With more than twothirds of the field exceed-ing their point goals, the course seemed to play exceptionally easy for most players. There was very little wind and the greens were rolling true; or could it be everybody is playing more and getting better. Pop Warner Football thanks all the sponsors and players who made its annual golf tournament fundraiser on Friday a suc-cess. The tournament was a lot of fun and a lot of prizes were awarded at the great lunch. The proceeds were greatly appreciated.

Ronnie Ash finished at +2 to take first place and closest to pin winners were Emerson Darst with two and Gary Williams with one. The only skin recorded was a birdie on Creeks No. 5 by Gary Williams, so he got the skin pot all to himself.

It came on the second hole by counting putts. The rollover pot was taken with an eagle chip in by Curtis Mixon on Ponds No. 9. A new pot will start next week.

Bailey was hit by a pitch and Jason Plyn singled to give Columbia two base runners. Courson doubled to bring in Bailey and cut Union Countys lead to 3-1. After Ryan Thomas scored Plyn on an out to right field, the Tigers were down 3-2. Plyn was able to knock the ball loose on a play at the plate, however, and that allowed Courson to come in behind Plyn to tie the game. After Caleb Vaughn came in for a scoreless eighth inning, the Tigers pulled out the victory in the bottom of the ninth. Thomas hit a one-out single, stole second and scored on a hit by Brinkley to give Columbia the 4-3 win. Got to look at Bailey on Senior Night, Columbia head coach J.T. Clark said. He kind of kept us in the game all night after getting out of a jam. He kept the team believing and then Ryan Thomas had an unselfish at bat to get them going. Then, wouldnt you know it, Travis Brinkley, another senior, hits the game winner with two outs in the eighth for us, which was great. Weve been in a little slump since clinch-ing the district, but this is something that we can use to build upon. Columbia travels to Chiles High at 5:30 p.m. today in Tallahassee. Petrinos ex-mistress resignsAssociated PressFAYETTEVILLE, Ark. The former mis-tress of fired University of Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino has resigned from her position with the program, school officials announced Tuesday. Jessica Dorrells decision to step down as the football teams student-ath-lete development coordina-tor was mutual and there are no immediately plans to re-fill the job, Athletic Director Jeff Long said in a statement. Dorrell will be paid about $14,000 to settle all matters between the parties. of the game was Kvistads second as she hit a two-run shot to bring in Pilkington in the bottom of the fourth inning for a 7-0 lead. Pilkington added a solo shot in the bottom of the fifth to give Columbia an 8-0 lead. In the bottom of the sixth, Douglass stole third base and a throwing error allowed her to take home to give Columbia a 9-0 lead. After that it was Erin Andersons game on the mound. Anderson came in for six scoreless innings of work. She didnt give up a hit until the final inning where St. Augustine had three base runners reach. Anderson also recorded five strikeouts. Every time we have needed her, she has come in and yet to fail, Williams said. With runners in scoring position, Pilkington record-ed the final two outs of the game by picking runners off at third. But the story of the game was the Lady Tigers ability to hit the long ball. It was a long time coming and I couldnt be happier for Payton, Williams said. She kind of ignited the fire and then we dropped the bomb. Everyone that has been swinging it good con-tinued to swing with con-fidence and we had a big stick tonight. If the Lady Tigers can pull out another victory on Thursday, it will mark the third championship in four years for the senior class. Kentuckys starting 5 declares for NBA draft ASSOCIATED PRESSKentucky players (from left) Anthony Davis, Doron Lamb, Te rrence Jones, coach John Calipari, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Marquis Teague m ake the announcement that the players will enter the NBA draft on Tuesday in Lexington, Ky.By COLIN FLYAssociated PressLEXINGTON, Ky. Kentuckys starting lineup of three freshmen and two sophomores did most everything together. Now, they will go their separate ways in the NBA. Freshmen Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Marquis Teague, and soph-omores Terrence Jones and Doron Lamb declared for the draft in a nationally televised news conference Tuesday night. We made it work, Jones said. We all wanted to be there and do it together like weve done everything else together. The group, all clad in similar blue UK golf shirts, came into the season large-ly untested before ascend-ing to No. 1, winning the Southeastern Conference in dominating fashion and capping an NCAA tourna-ment run with a 67-59 vic-tory over Kansas in the title game for the schools eighth championship. Its been a great opportunity playing here, Ill miss this team, the way we played together. We all love each other, said Davis, who picked up every major player of the year award and is likely the No. 1 pick in Junes draft. Im just going to miss this place. We won an NCAA champion-ship here and did a lot. We all did a lot for this school and Im going to miss it. The five join seniors Darius Miller, who is also projected to be drafted, and Eloy Vargas in leaving the program. This is a players first program. I said it three years ago. During the sea-son, its about our team. You saw it in this years team, they were about each other, coach John Calipari said. When the season is over, its about moments like this. The departures mean only freshman Kyle Wiltjer remains from the rota-tion with a new class of highly touted recruits join-ing Calipari next season. Calipari said he had never watched the final game of a season until this one. Kidd-Gilchrist appeared emotional for a few moments at the podium and later said his mother, Cindy Richardson, wanted him to return to school since he was one of the youngest players in Division I after turning 18 in September. Instead, he has other plans for her. I want to spoil my mom. I think Im going to spoil my mom to death. Thats one thing Im looking forward to, said Kidd-Gilchrist, who plans to buy her a watch for starters. Im ready, I think. Im ready for anything that comes my way now. Teague, the point guard, seemed to be the only play-er who might be a ques-tionable first-round pick in Caliparis effort to match his 2010 draft class that saw five players go in the first round led by the No. 1 overall pick, John Wall. Teague said he felt like he did enough to be drafted in the first round by leading a great team thats kind of like an NBA team to a national championship. This is my lifelong dream to play in the NBA and to be doing it with these guys, were all just making the decision together just makes it that much more special, Teague said.
DEAR ABBY: My youngest daughter, Lizzy, the sweetest and most con-scientious of my children, has been cut off yet again by her mother, Ruth. Ruth pressured Lizzy to graduate from high school a year early because she couldnt date with a child still at home. (Her words.) After graduation, Lizzy was shipped off to another state for college, then abandoned to find her own funding for continued edu-cation. The truth is, Ruth didnt want that pregnancy in the first place and has held it against Lizzy. The deeper truth is I wanted another child and deliberately got Ruth pregnant. I never told anyone, even after Ruth divorced me several years later. As far as I know, she has always accepted it as accidental. What I did was wrong, yet I cant imagine a world without my daughter in it. Lizzy is the only one of my children who has become close to me since the divorce. Should I share the truth about her birth with my daughter? Im not sure because I have always believed it is a major mis-take to admit to a child of any age that their preg-nancy was a surprise, let alone that it was unwanted. Two of my siblings werent planned, and one of them has become a bitter and distant adult. I want to help my daughter understand and accept her mothers insane actions and get on with her own life. What should I do? -GUILT-RIDDEN DAD DEAR GUILT-RIDDEN: Lizzy already has a pretty good idea that she wasnt wanted, and I wouldnt be surprised if her mother hasnt told her she was a surprise baby. Do not try to expiate your feelings of guilt by telling your daugh-ter what you have told me. That is a discussion you should have with your con-fessor, not your child. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My son was recently diagnosed with bone cancer and is currently receiving treat-ment. We heard about a fundraiser for pediatric cancer being held in our community. We joined the event and have received many donations from fam-ily and friends. As much as I want to hand-write thank-you cards, between his treat-ments, my work schedule and my other kids I cant find the time. Is an email thank you OK? The dona-tions have all been made online. -WANTS TO DO THE RIGHT THING DEAR WANTS TO DO THE RIGHT THING: I know you are under a lot of pressure right now. However, please refrain from expressing your grat-itude by email. Send short, handwritten, personal notes -a few at a time -to those who gave money, as your schedule permits. It is the proper thing to do, and they will be appreci-ated. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: For decades I have been told I look like my mother. The problem is, my mother is ugly! I no longer respond to the comment, preferring to remain silent and just stare at the person instead. Abby, please remind people that unless the comparison is to an attrac-tive model, opinions should be kept to oneself. -BEAUTIFUL IN MY OWN WAY, RICHMOND, KY. DEAR BEAUTIFUL IN YOUR OWN WAY: Ill remind them, but its possi-ble that youre overly sen-sitive. The person could be referring to a family resemblance, your color-ing or a mannerism. A diplomatic response would be, Thank you. Isnt she a dear? DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): By acting on impulse, you will surprise someone who will divulge informa-tion you require. Its your spontaneity that will keep everyone wondering what youll do next. Variety and diversification are your tickets to success. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Deal with any legal, financial or health matters quickly. You may have to use a little force if you want to get things done on time and to your specifications. Dont give in to an emotion-al ploy that will end up cost-ing you financially. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be realistic regarding the promises you make. If you are too generous with your time, money or the services you offer, some-one will take advantage of you. Problems or opposi-tion will arise if you are too open about your plans. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Hide your emotions from anyone who can influ-ence your position or repu-tation. Dont deviate from the way you are asked to do things. You will face a no-win situation that must be handled with caution. Compromise will pay off. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Participate in events and you will be recognized for your skill, talent and abil-ity to take charge. Love is in the stars, and you can enrich your current relationship with a little romance, or find someone special if you are single. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take care of money, health or legal matters that can influence your home, family and personal securi-ty. Take an interest in polit-ical reforms that can affect your lifestyle and environ-ment. Speaking up for your rights will enhance your reputation. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Make the first move if it will help you get a deal off the ground or initiate a friendship with someone you want to get to know better or work with. Dont allow a controlling person to hold you back. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take on a challenge and it will motivate you to get involved in larger proj-ects that can lead to mon-etary and personal gains. Look into making physical or financial alterations that will bring you greater con-fidence or stability. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A residen-tial move or change will work to your advantage. Changing your surround-ings, the way you live or who you live with will not please everyone, but it will make you happy. Follow your heart and live your life your way. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Assess and consider your options before you lay your cards on the table. You are likely to upset someone if you make changes without get-ting approval first. Focus on self-improvement and keeping the peace for the time being. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Youve got what it takes to persuade others to follow your lead. Home improvement projects will pay off, and love relation-ships will be enhanced by the changes you make. A skill or service you can offer will bring cash returns. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Dont be disillusioned by what others say or do. Stick to the truth and keep your thoughts out in the open. Honesty will be the only route to take if you dont want to suffer a loss. Dont give in to emotional manipulation. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
