Lake City ReporterSUNDAY, MAY 6, 2012 | YOUR COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | $1.00 LAKECITYREPORTER.COM SUNDAYEDITION 1C 1D By SAMANTHA GROSS and VERENA DOBNIKAssociated PressNEW YORK Moans, sighs and exclamations erupted Saturday as rela tives of Sept. 11 victims watched four closed-circuit TV feeds from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, that showed the self-proclaimed mastermind of the attacks and co-defen-dants trying to slow their arraignment, a move that drew outbursts from view-ers of cmon, are you kid-ding me? Its actually a joke, it feels ridiculous, said Jim Riches, whose firefighter son, Jimmy, died at the World Trade Center. Riches watched the hearing from a movie theater at Fort Hamilton in New York City, one of four U.S. military bases where the arraign ment was broadcast live for victims family members, survivors and emergency personnel who responded to the attacks. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and the other defendants were arraigned on charges that include ter-rorism and murder, the first time in more than three years that they appeared in public. During the hearing, they generally refused to cooperate. At one point, one detainee leafed through a copy of The Economist magazine, then passed it to another. At other times, defendants knelt in prayer. Like other family members, Riches expressed frustration about the pro ceedings. Its been a mess for 11 years, Riches said as he stood in the rain during a break in the proceedings and described the atmo sphere inside. And after his first glimpse inside the mili-tary courtroom, he said, It looks like its going to be a very long trial. ... They want what they want. Riches, himself a retired firefighter who worked dig-ging up remains in the days after Sept. 11, said he car-ried with him dark memo-ries of the days after the attacks, and he hoped that if convicted the five men would be executed. I saw what they did to our loved ones crushed them to pieces, he said. About 60 people repre senting 30 families were in the theater at Fort Hamilton, where the mili-tary provided chaplains and grief counselors, Riches said. The other bases pro-viding feeds were Fort Devens in Massachusetts, Joint Base McGuire Dix in New Jersey and Fort Meade in Maryland, the only one open to the public. At Fort Hamilton, Lee Hanson said he became deeply angry as he watched the delays being caused by men he blames for the death of his son, daughter-in-law and 9/11s youngest victim his granddaugh-ter, 2-year-old Christine Hanson. All were aboard United Flight 175, the sec-ond plane to crash into the twin towers. They praise Allah. I say, Damn you! said the silver-haired retiree from Eaton, Conn. Several people who viewed the proceedings said they had little sympathy for the defendants complaints about their treatment, given the brutality of the deaths of the nearly 3,000 victims of the attacks. Mohammed was waterboarded 183 times and subjected to other mea-sures that some have called torture. My brother was mur dered in the cockpit of his airplane, and we will have to stand up for him, said Debra Burlingame, who attended the viewing For 9/11 victims families, hearing is another orde al JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City ReporterAn FGC student waves to her family and friends as she find s her seat at the Commencement Ceremony Friday. 200-plus don caps at Florida Gateway I turned no you cant into watch me, says one new FGC graduate.By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comGraduates in emerald gowns watched with wide eyes as student government president Ivan Arevalo, 21, gave a poetic speech on embracing opportunities and change. Never forget that you are only one choice away from changing your life, Arevalo said. Around 130 students graduated with Associate of Arts degrees at the 2012 Florida Gateway College commencement on Friday. An additional 75 graduated with Associate of Science degrees or other certificates. Overcoming obstacles to embrace success was the theme of the afternoon, with student speakers sharing their stories on behalf of the graduating class. Graduate of Elementary Education Jashun Collins, 19, told students and families that the road leading up to commencement was not always easy for her. Negativity from others and her own mind sometimes obscured her path to success. I turned no you cant into watch me, she said. Collins said she plans to stay in Lake City. She hopes to work as a teacher. Valedictorian Stephen Williams, 18, said he did not initially think of a degree from FGC as all that valuable. Over time, however, Williams realized that his accomplishments at the col lege were not to be taken lightly. Williams said he was more excited about attending commencement then he initially thought hed be. I started coming here when I was 15 so Ive got to grow up while here, Williams said.

BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comOBRIEN At Planet Claire Farmacy, Hugh Bryant and Annette Bleser work diligently in their rock lobster garden, tending to purple kohlrabi and dragons tongue green beans. The couple own what they call a rock and roll farm out in OBrien. Allusions to rock and roll songs are the theme of the space with a rooster named Ozzy and a cow named Steve after Steve Clark from Def Leppard. The couple practice alternative farming methods, using no chemi-cals and developing their own reci-pes for common problems such as pests and fungi. In their garden, they cultivate unique crops unlike what many local farmers are used to seeing. Bright golden zucchini, yellow and red-stemmed Swiss chard and Cherokee purple heirloom tomatoes protrude from lucious greenery. Put that on a plate and they are drawn to it, Bryant said. The stuff that nobody knows what it is up here. Thats what gets them to your table. FARMACY continued on 8A

Yauch, also known as MCA, died in New York after a nearly three-year battle with cancer, his representatives said. He had been diagnosed with a cancerous salivary gland in 2009. At the time, Yauch expressed hope that it was very treatable, but his illness forced the group to cancel shows and delayed the release of their 2011 album, Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 2. He hadnt performed in public since 2009 and was absent when the Beastie Boys were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last month. Yauch was an integral, founding member to the ever-weaving trio: three Jewish kids from New York who found widespread respect in a hip-hop world with few credible white performers. In a 25-year span that covered four No. 1 albums and more than 40 million records sold, the Beastie Boys played both prankster and pioneer, a groundbreaking act that helped bring hip-hop to the mainstream. The groups music crossed genres and color lines and helped bring rap to a wider audience, said Neil Portnow, president of the Recording Academy. Yauch was an immense talent and creative visionary. The demure, gray-haired Yauch wasnt the most boastful B-Boy; he was the thoughtful one and a steady source of the trios innovative spirit. A devoted Buddhist, he led the group in performing concerts to benefit Tibet, and, as a filmmaker, he helped grow their imagery. The Brooklyn-born Yauch formed the Beastie Boys with high school friend Michael Mike D Diamond. Originally conceived as a hardcore punk group, they played their first show on Yauchs 17th birthday. In a letter from Yauch read by fellow Beastie Adam Ad-Rock Horovitz at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, Yauch recalled their early days at his parents home in Brooklyn, where we used to practice on hot Brooklyn summer days after school, windows open to disturb the neighborhood. The group became a hip-hop trio soon after Horovitz joined and coalesced after Yauch dropped out of Bard College two years into his studies. They released their chart-topping debut Licensed to Ill in 1986, a raucous album led by the anthem (You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!). It was the first hip-hop album to top the Billboard chart.Supermodel Evangelista testifies at New York child-support trialNEW YORK Tracing her working life from picking cherries as a preteen to the cover of Vogue, supermodel Linda Evangelista told a court Friday she can still command about $100,000 to walk a runway, though her career has slowed since its 1980s and s heyday. In an unusual peek into high fashion in Manhattan Family Court, Evangelista took the witness stand to begin telling her side of her child-support standoff with French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault. But their 5-year-old boy didnt come up in Evangelistas brief testimony Friday; shes expected to continue testifying Monday. Rather, answering questions from her lawyer, the high-flying model who once famously said she and her peers dont wake up for less than $10,000 a day sketched a portrait of herself as a woman whose first job harvesting cherries on a farm in her Canadian hometown paid $10 a day. She did that work at 12 to earn money for a bicycle, she said. She worked at a convenience store and several other jobs during high school, pounded the pavement in two continents to get her start in modeling and felt pressured into getting her now-signature haircut, she said.Publisher to release Taliban poetry for better understandingLONDON A group of researchers are preparing to release an anthology of Taliban poetry, something they hope will help Englishspeakers better understand the men whove waged more than a decade of war against NATO-led forces in Afghanistan. Many of the works in Poetry of the Taliban center on the movements campaign to expel foreign forces from their territory, with angry battle anthems or mournful dirges devoted to civilian casualties. But others touch on themes of religious devotion, nostalgia, or even love. Alex Strick van Linschoten, one of the anthologys coeditors, said he had collected the 240-odd poems off the Internet and in the field not for noveltys sake, but as a way of understanding who the Taliban are. This is one of the big problems of the conflict, which is one of making decisions without properly understanding the circumstances of the people around which these decisions are being made.CBS threatens ABC over newest reality series The Glass HouseLOS ANGELES CBS is hoping a legal warning shot shatters rival network ABCs plans for its reality show The Glass House. Attorneys for CBS sent ABC executives a letter Friday warning that The Glass House is strikingly similar to CBS show Big Brother. The network notes that ABC may be benefiting from the fact that 18 former Big Brother staffers and executives are now working on the planned show. Glass House would feature contestants who are constantly filmed and eliminated from a home they share, and viewers will be able to influence many of their actions, according to a description of the series released Monday. Big Brother, which has aired on CBS since 2000, has similar features. (AP)Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all under standing, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 NIV NASA inducts first Hispanic astronaut to Hall of FameCAPE CANAVERAL NASAs first Hispanic astronaut was among three astronauts Saturday who joined John Glenn, Neil Armstrong and Sally Ride in the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame. Franklin Chang-Diaz, who was born in Costa Rica, was inducted into the hall of fame in a ceremony at the Kennedy Space Center. Two other former space shuttle astronauts, Charlie Precourt and Kevin Chilton, also were inducted. Chang-Diaz flew seven shuttle missions, a record he shares with former astronaut Jerry Ross. A plasma physicist with a doctorate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Chang-Diaz helped deploy the Galileo spacecraft on its mission to Jupiter and worked on both the Russian Mir space station and the International Space Station. He left NASA in 2005 to found Ad Astra Rocket Co., where he is working on propulsion systems for travel to Mars. Chilton piloted the shuttle Endeavour on its inaugural mission, in 1992. He served as a deputy program manager for operations in the International Space Station office at Johnson Space Center before he left NASA in 1998. Chilton went on to become the commander of Air Force Space Command and Air Force Strategic Command. He retired in 2011 as a four-star general, the highest military rank ever held by a U.S. astronaut. Precourt and six crewmates were aboard the shuttle Columbia on March 22, 1993, when its three main engines ignited six seconds before their scheduled liftoff. As steam enveloped the shuttle, a liquid oxygen valve sprung a leak, triggering an automatic engine shutdown seconds before the twin solid rocket boosters were to ignite. Precourt, now an executive at ATK Aerospace Groups Space Launch Division, flew on Columbia in April 1993 after its engines were replaced on the launch pad. He also flew on three shuttle missions to the Russian space station Mir.Scott to GOP activists: Unite behind RomneyJACKSONVILLE Gov. Rick Scott, who has made it clear he plans to run for re-election in 2014, was focused Friday on the November election, saying that activists need to unite behind presidential candidate Mitt Romney and the GOPs eventual nominee. After speaking about his policies to help improve the business climate in Florida, stressed the importance of this years election. We have got to get behind Governor Romney and make sure he wins, Scott said. He believes in the right things, he believes in the free market, he believes in giving us individual freedoms no guarantees. We have to a have guaranteed opportunity, but not a guarantee. He believes in balancing our budget, he believes in paying down our debt. He also told about 700 people attending the Duval County GOP dinner that they should vet the three candidates running for Senate, but even if the candidate they choose loses, they need to back the nominee. We need to listen to them, we need to vet them, we need to understand what theyve done in the past, how they voted, but then weve got to win, Scott said. Every other one of these other candidates in these other races, you need to do the same thing you did to me, Scott said. Every race thats going on, hold everybody accountable. Ask them what they believe in, get involved in their campaigns, get their signs out, make phone calls. You win elections. You have to have money to run the ads, but the truth is these elections are won based on grassroots and you can do it. Scott won his election two years ago by spending more than $70 million of his familys money in a race where he relied heavily on television ads, mail pieces and automated phone calls. He has said that he will rely on fundraising for his re-election instead of spending his own money again.4,400 students homeless in DadeMIAMI Public schools officials say they counted more than 4,400 homeless students in Miami-Dade County in the last school year. Officials say homelessness among public school students ages 5 to 17 has jumped 84 percent in the last five years. The Miami Herald reports that 56,680 students statewide were reported homeless during the 2010-2011 school year. Among those students were 4,406 students in Miami-Dade Public Schools, the fourth-largest school district in the nation. The Miami-Dade Homeless Trust says the school district defines homelessness to include children living in households with more than one family.Arkansas police chief dies in hit-and-runPANAMA CITY BEACH Florida Panhandle authorities say additional charges are being considered for the suspect in a hit-and-run crash that fatally injured an Arkansas police chief on vacation.

By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comA Jacksonville man was arrested Thursday for allegedly shooting his brother in the groin. David Cray and the victim were arguing at 147 S.W. Journey Court when Cray, 48, shot his brother one time with a .380 caliber handgun, according to public information officer Ed Seifert of the sheriffs office. The victim was seated on a lawnmower when he was shot. The victim was flown to Shands UF for treatment. According to Seifert, his injuries did not appear to be life threatening. Cray was taken into custody at the scene by Columbia County sheriffs deputies and was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on a charge of aggravated battery with a firearm. Bond was set at $11,000. LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & ST A TE SUNDAY MAY 6, 2012 3ACray Page Editor: Xxx, 754-xxxx LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & ST A TE SUNDAY, MAY 6, 2012 3A3A DR.

Police: Man shot brother HANNAH O. BROWN/Lake City ReporterFirst anniversaryMayor Stephen Witt speaks at the Lake Desoto Farmers Market in honor of the markets one year anniversary Saturday. City Manager Wendell Johnson looks on at left. Williams plans to attend the University of Florida for a double major in chemistry and psychology. He hopes to eventually enter medical school to one day work as a psychiatrist. Mother and daughter classmates, Jami and Jordan Yarbrough, both graduated on Friday with degrees in nursing. Jami, 35, was inspired by her daughter, Jordan, who was 15 when she first enrolled at FGC. Jordan, now 17, says she convinced her mother to enroll with her initially so that she would have a ride to class. The two have taken every class together since they began the program. Jordan hopes to go to medical school at the University of Florida and to one day open her own clinic. Jami hopes to continue pursuing nursing at FGC. This is kind of a bittersweet accomplishment as a mother and daughter but kind of sad that she is going to go on without me, Jami said.

More than a decade after the attacks, she said, were back in the game ... and they decided to play games. She added: Theyre engaging in jihad in a courtroom. At Fort Meade, about 80 people watched the proceedings at a movie theater on the base, where The Lorax was being promoted on a sign outside. One section of the theater for victims families was sectioned off with screens, and signs asked that other spectators respect their privacy. Once the proceedings began, the spectators in the public section laughed at times, including when a lawyer indicated Mohammed was likely not interested in using his headphones for a translator and again, briefly, when one of the defendants stood and the judge said that kind of behavior excited the guards. But the crowd was quiet when the man began to pray. Only about half as many spectators returned after a midday recess. Very few people were planning to go to the viewing site in New Jersey, a base spokesman said, and a reporter was turned away at the gates to Fort Devens in Massachusetts. Six victims families chosen by lottery traveled to Guantanamo to see the arraignment in person. Others ignored the viewing opportunity altogether. Alan Linton of Frederick, Md., who lost his son Alan Jr., an investment banker, at the World Trade Center, said he and his wife put their names in the lottery for the Cuba trip but werent interested in watching a video feed of the arraignment. Thats just not the same as being there to me, Linton said. Going to Fort Meade, its kind of like watching television. Whether they watched or not, relatives were frustrated that its taken so long to bring the Sept. 11 conspirators to justice. The administration of President Barack Obama dropped earlier militarycommission charges against them when it decided in 2009 to try them in federal court in New York. But Congress blocked the civilian trials amid opposition to bringing the defendants to U.S. soil, especially to a courthouse located blocks from the trade center site. Mohammed and the others could get the death penalty if convicted in the attacks that sent hijacked airliners slamming into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania. The trial is probably at least a year away. When it comes to justice, it seems like its an afterthought, said Eunice Hanson, 2-year-old Christines grandmother. But New York police Detective Marc Nell said the viewing at Fort Hamilton more than a decade after 14 men in his unit were killed brought a sense of satisfaction, a great feeling.
Y ard signs and elec-tion banners have sprouted every-where in Hawaii. Tulsi Gabbard, Colleen Hanabusa and Mufi Hannemann want to go to Congress. Mazie Hirono wants to be a senator. Notice the wonderful collage of ethnic heritages. Hawaii is like that, rich in diversity and cultures. Hawaii, which really is a state, birthers, is not a place where immigration is a bad word, unlike Arizona, for example. Someday, we must hope, all states will be like Hawaii in appre ciating that America is as great as it is because it has been the worlds melting pot. That is why it is puzzling that Republicans have gone on a rampage against immigration this election year when they really need Hispanic votes. Complicating the picture will be the Supreme Courts deci sion in a couple of months either upholding or striking down Arizonas tough law on illegal immigration. Arguing that federal restrictions are not strict enough, Arizona permits state authori ties to stop and question people at random, searching for people here illegally. Mitt Romney supports Arizonas right to stop people authorities deem suspicious, demanding proof of citizenship on the spot. President Barack Obama, who grew up in Hawaii, thinks Arizonas law is atrocious. Obama promised action on the messy, murky immigration issue, as did four presidents before him. Nothing happened although the administration has increased deportation of those in the United States illegally. But the recession has reduced the number of peo ple seeking to come to the United States, both legally and illegally. The problem for Republicans is that Hispanics who were ready to be wooed because of the bad economy now are regard ing Republican candidates at all levels with alarm. If a significant number of Hispanics turned their backs on Obama, Romney could win. Romneys harsh rhetoric on immigration makes that all but impossible. And what has Romney gained? He would say the GOP nomina tion. But there is no way he can take back his policies, which seem to many Hispanics to be mean-spirited and even cruel. There are many solutions to the problems created when 12 million people dont have the rights and privileges of citizen ship. But the politicians are so cowed by the fact that none of the ideas on the table will make everyone happy that they choose again and again to do nothing. One of the debates between Obama and Romney should be on immigration. Both men should be pressed to be precise on how they would handle the issue. Both men have spoken in platitudes too many times; they must not be permitted to do that any longer. I ts not always true that the form of government closest to the people is best. In some cases, it can be the worst. Unchecked by sufficient legal restraints, private homeowners associa-tions (HOAs) have a reputation for going too far when it comes to upholding unnecessary and intrusive community rules. In a current case in East Texas, an Army captain deployed on the battlefields of Afghanistan was sued by his HOA over a swing set he had built for his children before leaving. In 2004, the father-in-law of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was embroiled in a battle with his Nebraska HOA over his right to fly the American flag on his property on Memorial Day. In 2009, a Richmond homeowners association threatened 90-year-old Medal of Honor winner Van T. Barfoot for daring to display Old Glory on a flagpole in his yard. The latter incident grabbed so many headlines that the Virginia General Assembly two years ago enacted a law over-ruling HOA covenants that ban the Stars and Stripes. It was a rare display of backbone for a legislative body that otherwise has sided with the politically powerful community-associa-tions industry, which wields the clout that comes from collecting $40 billion in assess-ments annually, according to the Community Associations Institute. Just last month, the Virginia House of Delegates voted 59-36 to sustain Gov. Bob McDonnells veto of an innocu-ous measure that would have asked the states Common Interest Community Board to draw up a model set of rules for HOAs. While perhaps well intentioned, this bill increases the Common Interest Community Boards workload without any discernible ben-efit, Mr. McDonnell said in his veto message. The board is hardly overworked, having taken a total of 24 regulatory actions in the past three years less than one a month. Its true that people shouldnt live in a voluntary association if they dont want to abide by typical HOA rules. In some parts of the country, however, there may not be many alterna-tives. Nationally, by the Census Bureaus count, there are 19 million homes governed by associations out of 74.8 mil-lion owner-occupied housing units; thats almost 1 out of 4. Most people who buy into this arrangement are focused on their jobs and family obliga-tions, devoting little attention to association meetings. That leaves the all-powerful asso-ciation boards in the hands of busybodies who enjoy the feel-ing of power that comes from controlling the lives of others. Federal, state, county and city governments have constitutional due-process rights limiting what can be done. Theres no way for property owners to challenge the arbitrary rules and decisions of an association board without going to court, and the HOA retains the power of foreclosure against a resident who refuses to pay a fine for daring to paint his front door with an unapproved shade of beige or in most states flying the flag. HOA represen tatives have no incentive to be reasonable. Lawmakers need to realize that individual property rights shouldnt be sacrificed to the collective. Theevils ofLittleBrother ONE OPINION ANOTHER VIEW Every time a bank fails an angel gets its wings. S o goes a graffito in Manhattans East Village. One block away, as marchers occupied Broadway on May Day, their picket signs pleaded, Millionaires must pay their fair share, and, No free ride for Wall Street. These words echo Occupy Wall Street and its spiritual lead er, President Barack Obama. Class warriors scream about imposing fairness on the rich, but their shouts become mum bles when asked what precise tax rate achieves fairness. Liberals grow mum amid these facts: In 2009, the latest IRS figures demonstrate, the much-maligned top 1 percent of taxpayers earned 17 percent of national income and paid 37 percent of federal income taxes. The top 10 percent made 43 percent of income and surren-dered 70.5 percent of income-tax revenues. Meanwhile, the bottom 50 percent scored 13.5 percent of income and paid just 2.3 percent of income taxes. Unfair? If so, the Left should specify what heavier tax burden on the wealthy or lighter tax load on the lower half of taxpay-ers would trigger fairness. Fairness hardly involves augmenting tax revenues, either for debt relief or even the social spending that makes liberals salivate. As the Ethics and Public Policy Centers Peter Wehner recalled April 12 in a superb CommentaryMagazine.com essay, then-Sen. Obama advo-cated a higher capital-gains tax rate, although lowering it from 28 percent to 20 in 1997 actu-ally expanded net revenues by 124 percent from $54 billion in fiscal 1996 to $121 billion in fiscal 2000. That levy was chopped by Tea Party pin-up, William Jefferson Clinton. Well, Charlie, Obama told ABCs Charlie Gibson in 2008, what Ive said is that I would look at raising the capital-gains tax for purposes of fairness. For too many liberals like Obama, fairness is not about enriching the modest; its about impoverishing the moneyed. Financier Warren Buffet has energized liberals with his still-unverified claim that his tax rate lags his secretarys. If true, fairness could mean slashing his secretarys taxes to match Buffets 11 percent effective tax rate. Somehow, reducing the secretarys taxes never came up. Instead liberals and Democrats demand the so-called Buffet Rule, an instrument for bludgeoning the successful rather than boost ing the downtrodden. Heres how the Right should challenge the Left: If you dislike income inequal ity, lift those with the least. Lets adopt universal school choice, allow personal Social Security retirement accounts (to democra tize long-term capital accumula tion), radically reduce or elimi nate Americas anti-competitive, 35 percent corporate tax (to supercharge businesses), and pass Right-to-Work laws (so, the jobless wont fester outside closed shops). Lets build the Keystone Pipeline (to create 20,000 blue-collar positions RIGHT NOW and lower everyones energy prices), frack for natural gas, and tame the Environmental Protection Agency, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Securities and Exchange Commission and other power-mad bureaucracies, so U.S. companies stay here and foreign firms move in. If liberals agree, they should enact this economic-growth agen da. If not, they should explain why they reject these proposals to help poor people prosper. Most likely, the ensuing silence would reveal liberals true inten tions: Not to lift the lobby, but to plunge the penthouse. Liberals want to plunge the penthouse GOP alienates Latinos, should examine Hawaii Lake City Reporter Serving Columbia County Since 1874 The Lake City Reporter is published with pride for residents of Columbia and surrounding counties by Community Newspapers Inc.

In a survey sponsored by tire maker Michelin, 94 percent of respondents selected tailgating as their lead-ing pet peeve. Tailgating driv-ers (you know who you are) are followed closely by drivers who cut off their fellow travelers (91 percent), drivers who zip from lane to lane with nary a clue theyre getting ready to make a move (85 percent) and, in a related faux pas, drivers who dont know how to use their turn signals (85 percent). Tailgating, the top offense of aggressive drivers, isnt just annoying. Its a good way to be involved in an accident, and the unlucky person who is being tailgated could be the target for road rage. According to the AAA Foundations Aggressive Driving update, such behaviors are a factor in up to 56 percent of fatal crashes. AAA gives hints on its website for dealing with aggressive drivers. Among the top five are three of the most important if you dont want to engage in a game of chicken with an already stressed and angry foe: -Avoid making inappropriate or offensive gestures. -Dont make eye contact.-Seek help if youre being followed by driving to a safe/crowded location or by dialing 911. Of course, when it comes to distracted driving, people who cant live without their cell phones for even a few minutes are the worst offenders. Our favorite scenario is a driver behind the wheel of a vehicle thats way too much machine for said driver to handle. He or she is also usually seen with a cell phone held between shoulder and ear and one hand bunched around a burger. The AAA website has a quiz that might give the smug and superior among us a shock when the final results are tal-lied. Go to: http://www.aaa-foundation.org/quizzes/index.cfm?button=aggressive.

Polo mogulwants new trialAssociated PressWEST PALM BEACH A Florida polo moguls attor neys have asked a judge to throw out his conviction in a fatal drunk-driving crash after a juror revealed that he conducted a drinking experiment during trial. In a motion filed late Friday, defense attorney Roy Black asked Circuit Judge Jeffrey Colbath to grant John Goodman a new trial. A jury in March con victed Goodman, 48, the owner and founder of the International Polo Club in Palm Beach, of manslaugh ter and vehicular homicide in the 2010 death of Scott Wilson. In a 32-page book pub lished this week, juror Dennis DeMartin said he drank three vodkas in half-hour increments the night before the jury reached a verdict in an experiment to determine how impaired Goodman would have been if he had consumed three drinks, as witnesses said he did, on the night of the crash. Black told The Palm Beach Post that DeMartin ignored the judges orders not to conduct any indepen dent research or investiga tion into the case. Dennis DeMartin is a nice fellow. I dont want to demonize him. Its not who I am as a person, Black said. But Dennis did not follow any of the rules in the case. DeMartin, a 68-year-old former accountant, told the newspaper (http://bit.ly/IRJ6xX) that he decided to self-publish his book Believing in the Truth so others would know what to do on a jury, and to make some extra money to buy a car. DeMartin said he fol lowed Colbaths instruc tions to not read or listen to any news reports about the trial. He even skipped visits to his condo pool dur ing the trial to avoid talking about the case. He doesnt remember Colbaths instructions about relying only on the evidence or not conducting any independent research. I dont remember him saying anything about that, DeMartin said. Im human and thats my mistake. DeMartin said that after his drinking test left him confused, he decided that Goodman would have been too impaired to drive, but it didnt convince him that Goodman was guilty. It wasnt a big factor, he said of his test results. I just wanted to know for me what it would feel like. Its got nothing to do with the case. In the book, DeMartin wrote that he was still not ready to convict Goodman when he arrived at the courthouse the day after his test.

8A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & NATIONAL SUNDAY, MAY 6, 2012 FARMACY: New take on organic food from area tract Continued From Page 1A Bleser and Bryant sell har vested vegetables, free-range eggs, homemade sauces and pickles at the Lake City and Branford farmers markets every week. The term far macy is explained by the couples eating philosophy, which is to use food as medi cine instead of relying on pharmaceuticals. According to Bryant, the impact they have on market shoppers is noticeable. Once people buy from their table, they keep coming back, Bryant said. Its just the way you treat them with love, Bryant said of the vegetables they produce. Bleser and Bryant wake up every morning and individu ally prune the insects from their tomato plants. They create their own fertilizer by mixing cow and chicken manure with oak leaves. They farm earthworms and release them into the garden every month or so. Its free labor, Bryant said of the worms. The two work on the garden and at the markets every week without addi tional help. Bleser, who has been tending gardens her whole life, spends most of her days on Planet Claires densely cultivated half-acre field. She calls the garden her happy place. We complement each other really well, Bleser said. He does all the cook ing stuff and hes not as into being in the garden except for tilling and posting and building things like that. Bryants forte is in the kitchen. A former Holiday Inn chef in Fort Myers, Bryant has a fresh and cre ative approach to cuisine. Bryant has recently con structed a free-standing kitchen right next to the couples garden. In his kitchen, which is outfitted with industrial equipment, Bryant experiments with freshly grown veggies. Homemade pineapple salsa, pickled green beans and green drinks (a smooth ie made up of kale, banana and apple cider) are just some of the creations that are born there. Using their fresh veg etables and culinary skill, Planet Claire Farmacy is planning to host a Farm-to-Table dinner, a fundrais ing event to be held once a month at Rupperts Bakery and Cafe on Main Street. Locally farmed meat, dairy and produce will be used to cook up gourmet dishes with a downhome flair. Ninety-nine percent of the food is local, Bryant said of the dinner menu. The first dinner, sched uled for May 19, will be com posed of five courses. Charbroiled beef tender loin served on polenta with a basalmic reduction, sauted greens cushioning a poached egg doused in hollandaise sauce and a blueberry par fait with homemade granola will all be served at the inau gural dinner. Proceeds will go to the Farm-to-Consumer Defense Fund, a non-profit organiza tion that works to protect the right to produce and consume unprocessed and processed foods directly from small-scale farms. Seats for the first din ner are already completely booked, but the couple plan to host a dinner every third Thursday. Tickets will be available at Rupperts the first of the month. Tickets cost between 20 and 30 dollars for the dinner events, depending on the ingredients used. On top of feeding the com munity delicately prepared wholesome produce, Bleser and Bryant hope to edu cate people who are curious about being more invested in what they consume. People want to live like this but they dont know how or how to get to it, Bryant said. Bleser said that helping people have a greater under standing of what they put in their bodies is the intent behind the dinners. Thats what it is, its all about that, Bleser said. Everything is GMO (genet ically modified organism) and people dont have a clue. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City ReporterAnnette Bleser looks to harvest a batch of royal burgundy beans. While many customers are accustomed to the usual produce found at farmers markets, P lanet Claire Farmacy prides itself on providing a fresh alternative to conventional ve getables, usually resulting in different varieties, shapes and colors.

Obams tears into Romney at campaign stopBy DAVID ESPOAP Special CorrespondentCOLUMBUS, Ohio Plunging into his campaign for a new term, President Barack Obama tore into Mitt Romney on Saturday as a willing and eager rub ber stamp for conservative Republicans in Congress and an agenda to cut taxes for the rich, reduce spending on education and Medicare and enhance power that big banks and insurers hold over consumers. Romney and his friends in Congress think the same bad ideas will lead to a dif ferent result or theyre just hoping you wont remem ber what happened the last time you tried it their way, the president told an audience estimated at over 10,000 partisans at what aides insisted was his first full-fledged political rally of the election year. Six months before Election Day, the polls point to a close race between Obama and Romney, with the economy the over-riding issue as the nation struggles to recover from the worst recession since the 1930s. Unemployment remains stubbornly high at 8.1 percent nationally, although it has receded slowly and unevenly since peaking several months into the presidents term. The most recent dip was due to discouraged jobless giving up their search for work. Romney has staked his candidacy on an under standing of the economy, developed through a suc cessful career as a business man, and his promise to enact policies that stimulate job creation. But Obama said his rival was merely doing the bid ding of the conservative powerbrokers in Congress and has little understanding of the struggles of average Americans. Romney doesnt seem to understand that maxi mizing profits by whatever means necessary, whether its through layoffs or out sourcing or tax avoidance, union busting, might not always be good for the aver age American or for the American economy, the president said. Why else would he want to cut his own taxes while raising them for 18 million Americans, Obama said of his multimillionaire oppo nent. While Romney has yet to flesh out a detailed eco nomic program, he and Republicans in Congress want to extend all the tax cuts that are due to expire at years end. Obama and most Democrats want to let taxes rise for upper-income earners. The presidents cam paign chose Ohio State University and Virginia Commonwealth University for the back-to-back rallies. Obama won both states in his successful race in 2008, although both have elected Republican governors since, and are expected to be hotly contested in the fall. Obama has attended numerous fundraisers this election year, but over the escalating protests of Republicans, the White House has categorized all of his other appearances so far as part of his official duties. The staging of the events eliminated any doubt about his purpose. He was introduced in Columbus and again in Richmond by first lady Michelle Obama, and walked in to the cheers of thousands, many of them waving campaign-pro vided placards that read Forward. ASSOCIATED PRESSPresident Barack Obama waves with first lady Michelle Obama after a campaign rally at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, on Saturday.Clinton opposes states amendmentBy MARTHA WAGGONERAssociated PressRALEIGH, N.C. Former President Bill Clinton has recorded an audio adver-tisement opposing North Carolinas proposed con stitutional amendment that would define marriage as a union between a man and a woman. The ad will be pushed to the phones of hundreds of thousands of North Carolina voters beginning Monday. In it, Clinton urges voters to oppose the amendment, saying it wont change North Carolinas statutory ban on gay mar-riages. But he says it will affect the states ability to attract new businesses and will take health care from chil-dren. He says it also could diminish the states laws protecting women from domestic violence. The pro-amendment side also has its share of heavy hitters supporting it. The Rev. Billy Graham issued a statement sup porting the amendment, saying the Bible is clear that Gods definition of marriage is between a man and a woman.

A chance for revenge By BRANDON FINLEY email@example.com Columbia High baseball coach J.T. Clark continues to say that the Tigers will ride their horse as far as it will take them. After an 80-pitch performance in a 1-0 win against Middleburg High to open the FHSAA Class 6A playoffs, Kellan Bailey will saddle up again in the second round. Hes 100 percent, Clark said. Hell have four days rest and oddly enough I think his best performance of the year came against Atlantic Coast with only four days of rest. Were going to pitch our No. 1 if were able. Bailey has been remark able this year with a 9-0 record and a 0.00 ERA. He struck out five batters and issued only one walk in his complete-game perfor mance against the Broncos on Thursday. Clark said theres one key to beating Stanton Prep in the rubber match. Weve got to shut down the left-handed batters, he said. Weve seen them twice and split the two games. Weve got to do a better job as coaches to put us in situations where that doesnt happen. Should the game go extra innings, Clark said he will have a full stable of arms. We arent worried about who we can throw on Friday, he said. We cant think about Friday. If needed, we can throw Alan (Espenship). Jayce has thrown well for us out of the pen all season. Weve got a lot of arms. Of course, pitching is only half the game. Weve got to take advan tage (at the plate) when the bases are loaded, weve got to score a run, Clark said. If that means changing our style, if we have to bunt to squeeze runners across, well do that. Stanton played a great game against us. They pitched one of their better games all year, so we have to get hot early and stay hot. We have to play with a little attitude and play loose. That doesnt necessarily mean that the Tigers want to change their style at the plate. We really need the middle to get hot, Clark said. We need Levi (Hollingsworth), who had a double the other night, Jason (Plyn), Ryan (Thomas), who scored the winning run, and Andrew (Nettles) to have multiplehit games. The bottom has been on fire. Dalton (Mauldin) has got going, but we need more people to step up when we have run ners on the bases. Despite having a chance to host in the second round, this is the matchup that the Tigers wanted. Everyone wanted this game from the head coach on down, Clark said. We still feel that were the best team in the district. Stanton woke us up. Everyone wanted the shot to come back, end their season and prove that we are the best team. Columbia will have its chance to prove just that when it travels to Jacksonville to take on the Blue Devils at 7 p.m. Tuesday. BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City Reporter Columbia Highs Ryan Thomas slides safely past the plate after scoring the Tigers winning run in the opening round of the FHSAA Class 6A playoffs at Middleburg on Thursday. Tigers have something to prove in playoffs C olumbia Highs baseball team is coming into Tuesdays second round FHSAA Class 6A playoff game at Stanton Prep with a lot of confidence. Perhaps its because the Tigers felt cocky last time they played the Blue Devils and were upset in their minds for the District 4-6A championship. That woke us up, Columbia head coach J.T. Clark said. Does that mean the Tigers were playing a bit too cocky in the district championship? The Tigers did sputter early and didnt wake up until finally putting a hit on the board in the fifth inning. But perhaps it was a wake-up call for the Tigers. TIM KIRBY /Lake City Reporter Fort White Highs football team lines up to run a play during the first padded practice of the spring at Fort White on Friday. Indians put a wrap on first week of spring By TIM KIRBY firstname.lastname@example.org FORT WHITE Fort White Highs football team wrapped up its first week with a scrimmage and some skirmishes. We tried to get a scrim mage in on our first day in pads, Indians head coach Demetric Jackson said after practice on Friday. We wanted to see where we are and what weve got. We divided them up a little bit and that is why it got so ugly in spots. While the passion showed with some pushing and shoving, Jackson reminded the Indians to get their pay backs the right way. He said discipline must develop in the remaining weeks of spring practice. Jackson was pleased with the spring turnout. He had 27 players on the varsity Jackson confident with turnout for Fort White. INDIANS continued on 4B Allen pleased with progress By BRANDON FINLEY email@example.com Its hard to tell a whole lot about a football team after only one week of practice, but Columbia High head coach Brian Allen is already shaking things up for the Tigers. One of the key moves dur ing the first week was mov ing running back Rakeem Battle to cornerback where Allen expects him to start in the fall. Hes very quick and fast, with super fast feet, Allen said. Hes used his ath letic ability to have a pick every day. Hes got great ball awareness and looks like hes been playing the position for a long time. We expect him to play the posi tion full time. Allen doesnt feel that it will take anything away from the offense. With (Braxton) and Ronald (Timmons), I feel that both of those guys can rush for 1,000 yards, he said. Rock will be full time on the defense and we will get him on offense in some packages. The move is one that Allen said showed Battles team-first attitude. He has not shown any animosity, allen said. Hes all smiles. Its a big learning curve, but hes picking it Columbia heads into game week for Purple & Gold. TIGERS continued on 4B

Its becoming a tradition like no other experienced by Tiger Woods a week-end at Quail Hollow with-out him. He missed the cut two years ago in the Wells Fargo Championship with the highest 36-hole score of his career, a surprise but not entirely unexpect-ed because it was only his second tournament since his return from the down-fall in his personal life. On Friday he missed a 4-foot birdie putt on his 17th hole that would have allowed him to make the cut. Woods, though, reminded everyone that it was all part of the process. He explained that swing changes take time, even if he has a trophy at Bay Hill to show for it.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, MAY 6, 2012 Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 TIGERS: Make a couple changes Continued From Page 1B INDIANS: Two weeks to get ready Continued From Page 1B CHS: Its Bailey vs. Blue Devils Continued From Page 1BWith Kellan Bailey and his 9-0 record on the mound, the Tigers have a decent shot to shut down the Blue Devils at the plate this time, but the Tigers must produce with the bats. Bailey has proven he can win 1-0 games, but the Tigers must take out the Blue Devils confidence early. If Columbia feels it is the best team and wants to win this third meeting, it must play like the best team from the beginning. The Tigers must take the crowd out of it and crush the opponents will to win. But Columbia cant come out and think its just going to happen for them. The Tigers have to work for it. They have to be patient in the batters box. They may have to play small ball to manufacture runs. They may have to draw walks, but they have to use their confidence to know theyll get on base by whatever means necessary. Columbia doesnt need to be cocky and win this game 9-0. The Tigers need to use their confidence to know theyre going to win it by how many runs it takes. If thats 1-0 or 7-6, it doesnt matter. Its just about playing with the belief that theyre going to make something happen at this point. BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Kellan Bailey follows through with a p itch during the first round of the FHSAA Class 6A playoffs at Middleburg High on Thursday. and 32 more on the junior varsity, which had its own scrimmage. Jackson capped off the first week with wind sprints. I feel confident with our secondary and lineback-ers, Jackson said. We have some spots to shore up on our offensive and defensive line. Spring practice ends with a game at Orange Park High at 7 p.m. May 18. Orange Park is coached by Columbia High graduate and long-time Tigers coach Danny Green. Fort White beat the Raiders at Arrowhead Stadium last year, and Jackson said this years re-match will be a challenge. The two coaches talked before spring practice start-ed and again on Friday. I told him we dont want to play Orange Park if you are not coaching, Jackson said. He said, I need to get some revenge. I talked with him today and they want to beat us bad. The Indians have two more weeks to get ready. The effort was there, Jackson said about the scrimmage. We had good contact. We are trying to build depth and to see if all of our guys can go. The Red and Black game is 6 p.m. Friday. Fort White has a middle school practice meeting immediately after school on Monday. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterThe Columbia High defensive line does a drill during practice Tuesday. up quick. Hes stepped up without one bit of disagree-ment and really showed that hes a team player. Overall, Allen has been pleased with the teams effort as a whole. I feel that things have progressed each day, Allen said. Were getting a little better each day. Allen named a couple of players that have stood out above the rest. Antonio Pelham has stepped up at a position that we need at receiver, Allen said. Trey Marshall has been outstanding on both offense and defense. Hes a guy that could win our spring award. Tyrone Sands is a young guy thats looked good as well as Javere Smith. Im pleased with the first team and the depth were working toward behind them as a group. Allen also announced another move on the offen-sive side of the ball. (Deonte) Crumitie is going to move from left guard to right tackle, Allen said. We feel that he has the ability to be that guy on the edge. We will be a better team with a solid right tackle, because that keeps teams from overloading to one side. Allen feels that the move will be natural one for Crumitie. Hes physical, its just a matter of learning the dif-ferent verbiage, he said. Hell be lining up next to a tight end now so thats a little change. Hes got the athletic ability though and hes maturing as a junior. I like what he can do and hes only going to get better as he continues to mature.

ASSOCIATED PRESSDriver Jeff Gordon gives a thumbs up after winning the p ole position for the Sundays NASCAR Springt Cup series auto race at Talladega Super speedway on Saturday in Talladega, Ala.Gordon wins pole at TalladegaBy JENNA FRYERAssociated PressTALLADEGA, Ala. Jeff Gordon understands winning a pole doesnt mean very much for the big picture. But after opening this season with a serious slump, the four-time NASCAR champion is embracing all the small victories he can get. Gordon grabbed the top starting spot for Sundays race at Talladega Superspeedway with a lap at 191.623 mph in his Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet. It was Gordons first pole since this race last year, and the 71st of his career third on the all-time list. And it comes at a time when Gordon is trying to jumpstart his season. Hes got just two top finishes through the first nine races, and is ranked 17th in the Sprint Cup Series stand-ings. We all know that sitting on the pole at Talladega doesnt really guarantee anything for the race, he said. The biggest positive is just the fact weve had a rough start to the season, not a lot has gone our way other than weve had fast cars but not a lot of results to show for it. To me, right now, well just take any kind of positive boost that we possibly can and this is a good one. AJ Allmendinger held down the top spot for most of Saturdays qualifying ses-sion in his Penske Racing Dodge, and Gordon made his attempt with four cars to go. He ran an uncon-ventional lap around the bottom of the track, and it was good enough to bump Allmendingers 191.111. Definitely a new strategy, but those guys are fast no matter what, Allmendinger said. So, its not like he snuck up on us. We knew that was going to be one of the cars that could beat us there at the end. Marcos Ambrose qualified third in a Richard Petty Motorsports Ford, and was followed by Aric Almirola, who is running his first race this weekend with new crew chief Mike Ford. Kasey Kahne, of Hendrick Motorsports, was fifth and followed by series points leader Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards, his Roush Fenway Racing teammate.

By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comHearing end of life care often brings feelings of fear and hopelessness to patients and their families. Haven Hospice, a non-profit organization that provides services to terminally ill individuals and their families, works to soothe the uncertainties and discomforts that accompany the realities of accepting death. We turn no one away, said Susan Follick, Director of Marketing and Communications at Haven Hospice. Haven Hospice provides end of life care to anyone who has been certified by a doctor to have six months or less to live. No one is denied if they fit this eligibility requirement. Haven Hospice receives funding from Medicaid, Medicare and most private insurance providers. Fundraising activities, such as Hospice Attic (the companys thrift store), are used to pay for the treatment of those that cannot pay themselves, Follick said. With seven offices, four in-patient care centers and four fundraising thrift stores, Haven Hospice serves 18 counties in North Central Florida. Haven Hospice centers prescribe to a special philosophy called palliative care. Palliative care focuses on making the patient feel comfortable and hopeful on top of providing daily sustenance and nourishment. Palliative care takes on a whole different tone of conversation and outlook, Follick said. Haven Hospices holistic approach extends to the family members of their patients. They host bereavement camps to help children learn to deal with their feelings of grief.

Full-time medical doc tors work at Haven Hospice in-patient care centers, a sig nificant difference in the orga nization from other hospices who typically hire part-time doctors. They make house calls, Follick said. They will drive to the patients home for a visit. Haven Hospice has around 600 employees and 600 vol unteers. Volunteers do every thing from refilling bird feed ers to sitting with patients as death approaches. Since 1979, Haven Hospice has cared for 60,000 patients and families and the number of patients served continues to grow. For the future, we see con tinued growth that follows the large swell of baby boomers as they age, Follick said. Clearly there will be more people that need our services. The opportunities for growth are there but much depends on the amount of reimbursement from Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance which likely will decrease. In 2007, 4,050 patients received care from Haven Hospice. That number saw a 5 percent increase in 2011 with 4,850 patients served. The amount of unfunded care provided has also seen growth. In 2007, $1.16 million went towards unfunded and non-reminbursed care programs. That number grew to $3.1 mil lion in 2011. The amount of funds raised grew as well but did not increase at the same rate as growth in services. In 2007, $1.24 million was raised, while $1.87 million was raised in 2011. Haven Hospice hosts fund raisers in every community that it has centers located. Lake Citys center will host a fundraiser called FAMFest, which stands for fitness, art and music. A 5K run/walk, art show presented by the Art League of North Florida and live music from Patchwork, a family-friendly rock band, will coincide with the Desoto Farmers Market at Wilson Park on May 19. The race will begin at 9 a.m. Registration costs $20 prior to the day of the race and $25 the day of. Participants can regis ter at active.com. Awards will be given out for winners of the race as well as the biggest team participating. Stephanie Brod with Haven Hospice anticipates over 100 people to attend the event.

When they retired, they could typically count on a pension, the value of which was based on their years of service and earnings. But today, workers can expect to hold several different jobs in their lifetime, and to a great extent, pensions have been replaced by 401(k) plans, which place much of the funding responsibility on employees. So, assuming you will change jobs at some point, and you do have a 401(k), what should you do with it? Here are your basic choices:&DVKRXW\RXUSODQ If you cash out your plan, your company will likely pay you 80% of your account value, withholding the rest for federal taxes. And if youre younger than age 59, you may well be slapped with a 10% IRS tax penalty. Even worse, youll have lost a key source of your retirement income. Still, if you are leaving your employer involuntarily, and you need the money, cashing out your 401(k) is an option you may need to consider. .HHSWKHPRQH\LQ\RXUFRPSDQ\VSODQ When you leave a company, your employer may allow you to keep your money in your existing 401(k). You may want to choose this route if you like the investment choices available in your plan. However, you might be caught by surprise if the company decides to change investment options. Furthermore, some employers may charge former employees fees to maintain their 401(k) plans. 0RYHWKHPRQH\LQWR\RXUQHZHPSOR\HUV SODQ If your new employer has a 401(k) and allows transfers, you could roll the money from your old plan into the new one. This might be an attractive option if you like the investment options in your new employers plan. 5ROOWKHPRQH\RYHUWRDQ,5$ You may QGVHYHUDODGYDQWDJHVWRUROOLQJ\RXUNover to an Individual Retirement Account (IRA). First, your money will still have the potential to grow on a tax-deferred basis. Second, you can invest your funds in virtually any investment you choose stocks, bonds, JRYHUQPHQWVHFXULWLHVFHUWLFDWHVRIGHSRVLW(CDs), etc. Third, if you own more than one NDFFRXQW\RXFRXOGQGLWDGYDQWDJHRXVto consolidate them into a single IRA, thereby making it easier to allocate and monitor your retirement assets. And fourth, IRAs may give \RXJUHDWHUH[LELOLW\LI\RXSODQWRSDVVPRQH\to your children. In fact, if your child inherits your IRA, he or she has the option of stretching withdrawals over the childs entire lifetime, rather than taking the money as a lump sum. (If you do transfer funds from your old 401(k) to an IRA, be sure to use a direct rollover to avoid the possibility of triggering unwanted taxes.)

LIFE Sunday, May 6, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D Recently we were joined by some of our favorite buddies Dennis Roberts, Don Kennedy, Mike Lee and Cindy Gaylord for a visit to Miltons Country Store. Miltons is located on Hwy. 441, eight miles north of I-10 in Deep Creek. Youve probably passed it many times and just thought it was a rustic convenience store that also sells gas. Next time youre driving through dont pass by without stopping in. Youre gonna be in for a treat. The restaurant is simple, one where you stand in line, place your order, pay, serve your own drink and sit down wherever. There is a large selection to choose from posted on several white boards with specials added daily. Everything is made to order so it comes to you piping hot. Don and Dennis tried the catfish fingerlings. Dipped in a homemade batter, these little kitties, as Don called them, were fried to perfection. Yes, Don still eats them like corn on the cob, nibbling from one end to the other. They chose cheese grits, baked beans and cole slaw. All delicious especially the grits that came with a mound of shredded cheese on top. Dennis said the beans had a great sauce and were loaded with meat. Mike had the grouper sandwich which he wanted grilled. He said it was a 9 out of 10. Mary Kay ordered the super burger and it was super and you definitely needed man size hands to surround all that goodness. It was a handmade patty cooked to perfection with all the trimmings. Don volunteered to finish off what was left. Cindy chose the fried chicken sandwich and Genie went with the fried shrimp sandwich. Both were outstanding, piping hot and served with ranch or tartar sauce. Genie said that next time shes going to have the fried gizzards. Sides of fried squash, fried okra and corn nuggets were sampled by all of us and they made you want to come back and just eat veggies or maybe try just a plate full of fried okra. You just cant go to a place like this and not enjoy the fried foods, its just part of being Southern. Don said to just put your foot on it and growl and then afterwards we guarantee, youll groan. Miltons is open seven days a week and will provide take out if you call ahead. During hunting season they open at 5 a.m. all week. Breakfast is another favorite meal here. The Marcie is a frequently ordered breakfast dish that includes eggs on top of hash browns, smothered in sausage gravy with your meat choice and either a biscuit or toast. All this is for $5.99. Miss Marcie has been working at Miltons for 17 years and is now Enjoying a country outing Story ideas? Contact Robert BridgesEditor firstname.lastname@example.org Lake City ReporterBy LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.com The freedom of summer vacation feels sweet for many students as the burden of school assignments and tests drift away. However, after the newness wears off that freedom becomes hot, sticky summer monotony. Summer camp can be the perfect solution to long boring days, as camp allows children to make friends, be active and have fun. With the last day of school quickly approaching, area day camps are already enrolling and offering field trip adventures, activities and learning experiences. Boys Club summer campSports, games, crafts, field trips and special events at the Boys Club of Columbia County will keep children engaged and active all summer long. The club is currently enrolling for summer camp, which runs June 4 through Aug. 10, for boys and girls ages 6 to 14. The cost is $250. The camp is closed the week of July 4. Special events include Tom Sawyer day, a talent show and skating, bowling and swimming trips. For information or to enroll call 752-4184, or visit the club Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 379 NE Jones Way. Girls Club camp The Girls Club, 494 NW DeSoto St., will have a first come, first served registration day TASTE BUDDIES continued on 2DIts that time of year again and the lovebugs are in flight. The Lovebug, or Plecia nearctica, is actually an invasive species that slowly worked its way here from Central America. The first Lovebug reported in Florida was in the late 1940s. Since then the species has become well established throughout Florida. Lovebugs dont bite, sting, or destroy crops or property so they are classified simply as a nuisance pest. Diesel and gas fumes attract the insects, explaining why motorists usually seem to be most annoyed. If not removed before the sun bakes it, the splattered bug juice becomes acidic and etches car paint. To minimize paint damage, soak your car as soon as you can for five minutes, and then use some elbow grease to scrub off the spatters. Lovebugs, relatives to gnats and mosquitoes, are also known as March flies. There are several species of March flies that are native to Florida, but the species that is the most bothersome to motorists is the Lovebug. The females measure about one third of an inch and the males are a little smaller. They are entirely black except for a red dot on their back. On a closer inspection, you will see that the males have large bug eyes. The two main swarm seasons are in April-May and again in August-September. The fully developed males emerge first from the soil where eggs hatched and the larva grew. They hover up about three feet waiting for the females to emerge and then fly away as a rather strange looking pair. Adults live for only a few days during which time they find a mate and reproduce before dying. The female will lay about 350 eggs in decaying plant material before she dies. It looks like we will have to continue living with Lovebug splatters, but there are a few ways to minimize the damage. Give your car a good coat of wax, dont wait long before scrubbing off the splatters, and install a screen or hood guard to deflect many of the bugs.

It is not an easy task to accomplish when there are family and other responsi-bilities. I am thrilled to have been able to return to school recently. I look forward to having the privilege of being able to hold a degree in my hand. Sometimes it seems easier to give up and focus my energy in other directions, but that is some-thing I cannot allow myself to do. I really never thought I would be doing what I am today. As a child, I can remember dreaming of being a doctor and making breakthroughs in medicine and treating diseases; being a teacher and contributing to the dreams of others; or being a pilot for the mili-tary, flying planes into combat to bomb the enemy. My biggest dream, as I entered my teenage years, was to be a nutritionist. I felt I could help a lot of people by sharing with them the knowledge they need for treating their bodies well to prevent or possibly reverse diseases. At the age of 17, I began college as a dual enrollment student. I felt like I was right on track with accomplish-ing my goal. I did well in classes, but I worked over-time a lot and it caught up with me. I had to withdraw from classes when I was 19, due to medical issues. That was quite a road block. I did not like the idea of having to repeat classes again and picking up at a slower pace. I did not return to school for a little while afterwards. I have made other wonderful accomplishments in my life since I stopped attending school. I married a wonderful man, Landon. He is a great inspiration and motivational support for me. In January of 2011, we had our son, Nathaniel. They have been such a blessing in my life. I have kept the mindset over the years that I wanted to finish what I started. I want to continue my educa-tion and set a good example for my son. I also have four wonderful nieces to set an example for. If I give up, what message do I send to them? I began my attendance at college again this past spring. I was informed of a new, growing need for med-ical coders. I was excited to enroll into the medical bill-ing and coding program at Florida Gateway College. I have never really made good grades in college before, but this past semes-ter, I have an A in nearly every class. Not all days are easy, being in college. When my toddler is running me ragged, the food is burning in the oven, the bills need to be paid, and my hus band has had a bad day, I begin to think that anything else on my plate is just too much. Some days I feel as if I could give up, but then I remember what it is that I am working towards: a bet-ter future for my family. It has been great having the support of my family. Without them, I would not be able to accomplish all that I do. It is nice to have the help of my mother or my in-laws when I need someone to keep my son so that I can make it to class or finish some homework. It is also a BIG help to have the support of my husband, when I need someone to vent to, and to tell me things will get better, and encour-age me to not give up. I am thankful for them. I have really enjoyed my classes so far this semester. I think that is another huge help in accomplishing my goal, knowing that I like what I am doing. I am enjoying learning the material in all of my classes and my professors have been great. I do not procrasti nate as much as I used to, so finishing assignments on time has not been much of a problem. That has helped to lower my stress level, not worrying about how much time is left before the dead-line or what I have not com-pleted. I have been very satisfied with my studies thus far. Life is wonderful but it is also very hectic. Being a wife, mommy, sister, daugh-ter, aunt, and student can seem overwhelming some days. In the end, all that I put my energy toward in life is worth it. I have been blessed to have the support system that I have. I am so glad I made the decision to return to school and I look forward to completing my goal.

A range of camping options and innovations have made it far more com fortable to eat, sleep and otherwise spend time in the Great Outdoors. Soft rugged is what so many Americans are seek ing in their outdoor expe rience today, says Jim Rogers, chairman and CEO of Kampgrounds of America, or KOA, which runs about 500 campgrounds around the country. So much so that he now refers to the camp ing industry as outdoor hospitality. KOA has beefed up some of its campgrounds to include both basic and luxury cabins the latter being the kind more often equated with family resorts than places to pitch tents. Rental costs $100 to $150 per night. Some sites offer coffee carts, pan cake breakfasts, kids activi ties and entertainment. Campers who want things a bit more but not much more rustic can browse the equipment lining the shelves at well-stocked outdoors stores (although some of the fancy new goodies may hike the price of that simple camping trip). Take, for instance, REIs Kingdom 8 tent, which is big enough to sleep eight. For $529, the tent is not just waterproof and bug-proof but also has moveable room dividers to create separate spaces with private entranc es. Fill it with cots, airbeds and perhaps a ceiling fan created for tents, and youre bound to get in a good nights sleep. Toss in anoth er $100, and you can add to it a garage to store food or gear or use it as a place for the family dog to sleep. Nifty outdoor stoves and cooking gear have made campfire-cooked canned beans and hot dogs moot, unless you really like them. REIs camp kitchen, for example, is a folding trove of food-prep workspace and storage all of which can be carried around in a zipper bag. It even includes hooks for hanging up spatulas, and windproof screens so the elements dont mess with your cooking. Coleman, one of the big gest manufactures of camp ing gear, sells a camping oven that fits handily onto one of the companys twoor three-burner grills. Dont even think about grainy cowboy coffee, or even those classic enamel percolators. French presses, specifically engineered for outdoor use, are now the way to go if youre picky about your coffee prepara tion (although the experi ence may not be exactly what youre used to in your own kitchen). Coleman sells a propane-powered drip cof fee maker that you dont even have to put over heat. Freeze-dried food now includes dark chocolate cheesecake, spinach puttan esca and Indian dishes. And the retailer Eastern Mountain Sports sells solar chargers for your portable electronics because, as its website says, Trees dont come with electrical outlets to charge your iPhone. Some purists snub the idea of making camping more comfortable. They question whether lugging and using all that stuff dilutes the nature of, well, getting back to nature. Much of the fancy new stuff is meant to be driven, not carried, into a campsite, and is heavy enough that retailers dont recommend carrying it far. So can you really get away from it all when you are bringing it all with you? There are so many dif ferent kinds of camping experiences, and they are all camping, says Avery Stonich, spokeswoman for the Outdoor Industry Association. Its all what it means to the individual. New amenities take the rough out of roughing it ASSOCIATED PRESSThe interior of a Ventura Ranch Comfort Cabin is sh own located at the KOA campground in Santa Paula, Calif., in th is undated photo released by Kampgrounds of America. A range o f camping options and innovations have made sleeping, eating and hanging out in the great outdoors way more comfortable than ever before.
BY JENNIFER FORKERAssociated PressFamily photos and mementos are the raw stuff of some great Mothers Day gifts. Here are three ideas including fresh takes on the silhouette and the family tree for creating a new fam ily treasure in just an afternoon. SILHOUETTE PENDANTSFrom Whitney Phippen, of Fort Collins, Colo., comes the traditional silhouette a black profile positioned on a white background reinvented as a keepsake pendant. Phippen has made silhouettes of countless chil dren, but also of adults, dogs, cats even a pet chicken. It was ador able, she recalls. This mother of two young boys has made hundreds of pendants since opening her Etsy online shop, Lucky Me Beads, five years ago. She likes working with childrens profiles. I love how their hair is so random and can have all these little spikes and curls, Phippen says. Phippens pendant-making pro cess is slow and methodical she works by hand but she suggests that others can craft something simi lar with a few shortcuts. A photo can be turned into a sil houette using Photoshop, or it can be done the old-fashioned way: Cut the profile out of a photo. Phippen goes this route, cutting from a large photo to capture more detail and then scanning it into her computer, where she manipulates the image and shrinks it to pendant size. She uses vintage hardware for her pieces, but says most pendant supplies can be found at any crafts store. If youre going to cover the piece in a resin, as Phippen does, she recommends using ICE Resin, which is nontoxic and wont discolor over time. She buys it online. FAMILY TREESVana Chupp, of Mount Prospect, Ill., also works in silhouette for her online store, Le Papier Studio, and an Etsy shop of the same name. An architect by trade, Chupp began making silhouettes to docu ment her first-born sons growth. Hes 7 now, and Chupp also has a newborn a new face to mark in profile. Chupp works in several mediums card stock, fabrics, jewelry and dishware. A family tree of silhouettes can fit three or four generations. The tree can be cut out of paper or fabric, or theres a template on her website. Chupp likes to use the likenesses of real family members, but silhouette templates also can be used. She suggests hanging the genea logical tree among family photos as a go-to point for explaining ances tors and family relationships to chil dren. Other Chupp projects are in her book Silhouette Art (Chronicle books, 2010). FAMILY-STORY TRIPTYCHSondra Hines came up with this idea several years ago for an elemen tary school art program at the Holter Museum of Art, in Helena, Mont., where she is curator of education. A triptych consists of three pan els, two of which often fold onto the third. Younger children need adult guidance to make one, but teenag ers can do it on their own. Hines suggests embellishing the triptych with meaningful items: glu ing on old ribbons or buttons, a parents favorite poem, a fabric remi niscent of grandmother even con cert tickets. Basically, you just want to put things in it that hold memory, so when you look back you can go, Ohhh, I remember ..., says Hines. Here are directions for making the Holter Museum of Arts Family Story Triptych: Supplies:Three pieces of Davey Board (also called Binders Board) Natural muslin, or any cotton or linen fabric Family photos or other two-dimen sional mementoes Scrapbook or other heavy, pat terned paper Embellishments (ribbons, but tons, glitter, sequins, lace, etc.) Glue, such as Elmers or Tacky Glue Assembly:1. For each triptych, cut the Davey Board into three pieces. Start by cutting two pieces 9-by-7 inches and then cut one of them in half ver tically to make two smaller pieces, 4-by-7 inches each. The larger piece will form the back of the trip tych. The two smaller pieces will create the two front sides that open and close. 2. Cut fabric one inch larger than the board on all sides. For the fea tured measurements, thats one piece of fabric measuring 21-by-17 inches. 3. Center the three boards over the fabric, with the largest board in the center and leaving inch of space between each board, and fold the fabric over. Cut the corners on the diagonal but not too close to the boards to get pointed corners. Glue the fabric to the boards. 4. Now, you should have a work ing triptych that opens and closes. Cover the inside cardboard with scrapbook paper and embellish it with photographs, artwork and little mementos. Remember to keep items on the inside two-dimensional so you can close your triptych, if desired.

It grows on a small, bushy plant. Just one type of currency, though: silver dollars (Lunaria annua). You have a couple of options for planning your investment. For quickest returns, sow seed indoors in a seedling flat filled with moist potting soil. Kept at about 70 degrees Fahrenheit, the seeds ger-minate within two to three weeks. Plant the seedlings outdoors at the same time you plant out tomatoes, then harvest your first dol-lars later this summer. If you plant very soon, you may still be able to get a return on your investment this year. Despite the annua in the botanical name, howev-er, silver dollar plant often behaves more like a bien-nial than an annual, grow-ing only leaves the first year then expiring the next year after making flowers and dollars. The second, more relaxed way to grow silver dollar plant is as a biennial. Sow the seeds outdoors some-time in early summer timing is not critical to rake in your dollars early next summer. Whichever method you choose, give silver dollars a site with well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. Avoid a rich soil, though, or plants put their energy into mak-ing leaves at the expense of flowers and dollars. MORE THAN JUST SILVER DOLLARS The flowers that fore shadow the silver dollars are pretty, but not enough to warrant giving the plant a prominent spot in your flower bed. A better loca-tion is in a separate cut ting garden, a wild area, or nestled and somewhat lost among other kinds of flowers. The money plants flowers have four petals in the shape of a cross, putting it in the Mustard Family, PLANT continued on 6D

DEAR ABBY: I have been married to my hus-band, Stu, for 27 years. His brothers family con-tinues to send invitations addressed only to Stu. When they call to invite us to anything and I answer, they ask to speak to him. He has asked them not to do that. When RSVPing to the latest invitation to our nieces graduation party -addressed only to my hus-band -I said that he would attend as he was the only one invited. I also asked if I had done something to offend anyone. I was told, No, of course not, and they were sorry if there was a misunderstanding, because the invite was for the whole family. When we see each other, they are polite. I feel that pushing the point or not attending would reflect badly on me. What do you suggest? I am hurt by years of this treatment, and Stu is just as offended. -HAD ENOUGH IN NEW HAMPSHIRE DEAR HAD ENOUGH: Either your brother-in-law and his family never learned how to properly address an invitation (i.e., Mr. and Mrs. or and family), or on some emo-tional level you were never accepted as a full-fledged family member. As I see it, you have two choices: Continue to attend these events as you have for the past 27 years, or both of you decline and tell them exactly why. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My 17year-old daughter, Corey, is in a two-year relation-ship with Greg, whos 19 and in the Naval Academy at Annapolis. They have exchanged promise rings and agreed to make this long-distance relationship work. She went to visit him for Thanksgiving and he came home for Christmas. He also returned for spring break. He takes advantage of every oppor-tunity to see Corey. We live in California and Corey is a junior in high school. Prom is almost here, and Greg has told her he doesnt want her to miss out on anything. I feel she should not go with anyone else -that its a sacrifice you make when you have a boyfriend. Well, she accepted an invitation from a guy friend and Greg said he was fine with it. I sent Greg a text mes-sage, and he repeated that sentiment. I believe Greg was thinking she wouldnt actu-ally go to the prom and he was just trying to be nice, hoping shed make the better decision. I am stressed that this may ruin her relationship and shell be devastated. Is it OK for her to go to the prom with a friend, even if she has a boyfriend? -ONLY WANTS THE BEST FOR HER DEAR ONLY: If your daughter cleared it with her boyfriend and he said hes fine with it, then its all right for her to go to the prom. Im more concerned that you took it upon yourself to text your daughters boyfriend to double-check. Greg appears to be a mature, confident and stable young man. If youll let the rela-tionship continue to evolve naturally, the romance might actually pan out. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take a practical look at your current work situa-tion and you will find a way to rectify any problem you have with the way things are going. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Use your intuition to help you decipher what changes will help improve your relationships with others. You can pick up valuable information if you sign up for a course, attend a conference or research a topic of interest. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take care of personal paperwork and avoid over-indulgence. You have to set a pace you can live with and avoid taking on responsibili-ties that will put a damper on the activities or projects you want to pursue. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Have fun, or at least join in and participate in a function that will help you explore new interests or allow you to put your skills to good use. You will expand your circle of friends and enhance your relationship with someone special. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Curb your bad habits before you get into trouble. Not everyone will appreciate your fun-loving attitude. Take note of the people in your life who love you and who want the best for you. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A day trip or a visit with a friend or relative you dont see very often will spark an idea or plan that can sprout into something lucrative or stress-reducing. Invite someone who shares your interest to participate as an equal partner. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Dont make an impulsive move you cannot afford. Sticking to a budget will be the deciding factor when it comes to your success. Too much of anything will not pay off in the end. Put qual-ity before quantity. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): An opportunity to share ideas with someone you think can contribute to your plan will pay off. A project that improves the environ-ment you live in will help kick-start your creativity. You will be able to stabilize your financial situation. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Youll be anx-ious to get things done, but before you start, make sure you arent underes-timating whats required. Overconfidence in your own abilities or someone elses may hinder the outcome of your venture. Love is high-lighted. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Reassess your strategy and you will come up with a plan that will help you get ahead professionally or personally. Your reputa-tion will be enhanced if you offer suggestions based on past experience that lead to financial gains. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A little goes a long way. Focus on love, entertain-ment and self-improvement, and you will bring about changes that will enhance your reputation. You dont have to spend a lot if you do whats required rather than paying for help. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Resurrect an idea and find a way to make it finan-cially feasible. Connect with people you feel are the best at what they do and pull together a group that shares your vision and is prepared to contribute for a percent-age. +++++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across ,WKDVH\HVWKDWFDQW see 5 Flips13 Student of morality20 Philippine money21 Pacific strings22 Fine word for libraries? 23 With 26-Across, like grandchildren 25 Beach bottles26 See 23-Across27 Deck out28 Bad record part, for short )RUVKDPH30 Ancient parting place 33 With 44-Across, execute, in a way 36 Keen observer40 Prefix with cycle41 Pond fishBBBG2U4XpEHF44 See 33-Across45 With 50-Across, euphoric 48 Ankle bone50 See 45-Across51 Product with the old ad catchphrase0RWKHUSOHDVH,GUDWKHUGRLWP\VHOI 53 Faith that celebrates both Jesus and0XKDPPDG 57 Superlatively strong61 Initially64 Scaredy-cat, maybe65 Sacred music composer ___ Prt 67 Trig inverse68 County subdivision: Abbr. 71 With 77-Across, high-end retailchain 74 Neighbor of Bulg.75 Botanical beards77 See 71-Across78 Grove80 Political party that won 39 electoralvotes in 1948 $SSDUHQWO\86 Panache7KH\UHILWIRUNLQJV and queens 3RHWZKRZURWH,Q the room thewomen come andgo / Talking of0LFKHODQJHOR :KDWVOHIWEHKLQG94 With 103-Across, 1999 Shyamalanthriller 98 Part of AARP: Abbr.101 Fury102 ___ Records (old music label) 103 See 94-Across:KDWVOHIW105 With 112-Across, compromise 108 Later 111 Abbr. on many food labels 112 See 105-Across113 Ancient Balkan region 115 Stinko120 Like some interpretations 122 With 127-Across, classical workWKDWVWKHVRXUFHRIthe European8QLRQVDQWKHP 125 Dancer Duncan0LOLWDU\GHSRWV127 See 122-Across128 They have scales129 Gave, as a hot potato 130 Peter, e.g. Down 1 Bind2 Phnom ___3 Possible candidate for rehab 2OG,WDOLDQ magistrate 5 Word with top or pop6 Fine, in old slangVXSHUSRZHU8 Blue-gray9 Be fooled10 Et ___ (and others)6WDU7UHN71* role 7KH0DU\7\OHU 0RRUH6KRZEmmy winner 13 The West was part of it 14 Promises 15 Become fixed16 The Rams of the N.C.A.A.

Summerall Financial Services Rep. 234 SW Main Blvd. 752-5866 John A. Kasak CLU CPCU State Farm Agent Lake City, FL 32025 Bus: 396-752-7521 BY NIGEL DUARAAssociated PressYACOLT, Wash. When Princess Natalie was still a kitten, before she was prison royalty, she was left in a cage with another cat for months. They were fed, given water and not much else. Natalie became afraid of people and other cats. When she was adopted, she hissed at her owners, made a mess in their home and bit them at every opportunity. They gave up and handed her over to a shelter. Natalie was scheduled to be put down. But then a program at a minimum-security prison in Washington state presented another option: Hand her over to a pair of inmates. The six-year-old, longhaired black cat would live in their cell, get outside time daily and learn manners. For Joey Contreras, 28, Natalies arrival in March was his ticket out of a 40-man dorm and into a two-person cell with a door. Contreras and his cellmate, after passing the screening process, are two of the four inmates in the Cuddly Catz program at Larch Correctional Facility in Yacolt. Nobody was wanting to adopt her, Contreras said. We got her and its been awesome ever since. It wasnt awesome at the outset. She came as advertised, Contreras said moody, dysfunctional and prone to violence. But the changes in his newest cellmate are evident. She can now be petted, brushed and even held for a few minutes. She still growls but rarely hisses. She has a scratching post and perch that takes up a healthy chunk of the 12 footby-10 foot cell. Contreras and his cellmate care for her in shifts. The programs other cat, a half-Persian mix named Clementine, is in the care of Richard Amaro, who said the experience has been about more than escaping dorm life. You get close to them, Amaro said. The prison hopes to add four more cats. Inmates accepted in the program have to exhibit good behavior infractions can mean being sent back to the general population. Prison counselor Monique Camacho said the experience helps reinforce the concept of teamwork for inmates who are used to looking out for only themselves. In prison, they tend to think about No. 1, Camacho said. Now they have to look out, care for and have responsibility for something else.ASSOCIATED PRESSThis frame grab from video shows inmate Richard Amaro with his cat Clementine at Larch Correctional Facility Friday, April 20, in Yacolt, Wash. The Cuddly Catz program at the Larch Correctional Facility, a minimum-security prison is several months old, but inmates say theyve already noticed a difference in the cats and themselves. The program began in cooperation with a local animal shelter. It has grown to include two cats and four inmates, and the prison plans to add four more cats. ASSOCIATED PRESSInmates Joseph Walter, left, and Joseph Contreras watch Princess Natalie in a 12-by-10-foot cell, which resembles a dormitory room, at Larch Correctional Facility Friday, April 20, 2012, in Yacolt, Wash. The Cuddly Catz program at the Larch Correctional Facility, a minimum-security prison is several months old, but inmates say theyve already noticed a difference in the cats and themselves. The program began in cooperation with a local animal shelter. It has grown to include two cats and four inmates, and the prison plans to add four more cats. Bunking with cats Inmates learn value of teamwork along with broccoli, radish and alyssum. Usually, the flowers are pink or purple, except for one variety with white flowers. For a little more pizazz, there is a variety, Variegata, with white margins on its leaves. Silver dollar plant, along with other members of the Mustard Family, ripens its seeds within a dry fruit called a silique. As the silique ripens, the two outside halves dry, then fall away to leave the ripened seeds still on the plant and suspended within a translucent and silvery round septum, about the size of a silver dollar. For dried flower arrangements, cut stems just as the outsides of the pods are beginning to yellow, then hang them upside down in an airy location. Once the outsides dry, rub them off with your fingers without damaging the delicate membrane between them. AN INVESTMENT IN HONESTY You might say the silvery orbs that remain also resemble the moon, leading to another common name for the plant, moonwort, as well as the botanical name Lunaria. And money and honesty go hand in hand, right? Perhaps thats how silver dollar plant also came to be called honesty. Some people say it got that name because you can actually see the seeds within the ripened fruits. Your initial investment in silver dollar plant can be made with seeds from a seed packet, or with seeds snatched from a dried arrangement. You will get compound interest on your initial investment because silver dollar plant self-sows. Too readily in some situations, so put your investment where you can keep a close eye on it, or where other equally exuberant plants can help check its spread.PLANT: Silver dollarContinued From Page 3D You will get compound inter est on your initial investment because silver dollar plant self-sows.
