SUNDAYEDITION Vol. 138, No. 93 1D 1C Berry, berry good City polling placeplan scaled backBy HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comSupervisor of Elections Liz Horne announced a decrease from five to two polling locations in Lake City at a press conference at her office Friday morning. The plan was amended from Hornes previous draft which included a single polling location for the Lake City area. Lake City residents will now be able to vote at the Supervisor of Elections Office and Richardson Community Center come elec-tion day. Hornes plan reduced the number of voting precincts in the county from 25 to 23, with Southside and Heartville closed. Thirteen poll-ing locations were proposed for the entire county, where-as eighteen polling loca-tions were pre-viously avail-able. Eight precincts were proposed with-in the city, the same number as previously outlined. This is pretty well what we are going to stick with because it is the best for the whole county, Horne said. It all averages out to have about the same number of voters in each polling loca-tion. Assistant Supervisor Jean Lear said many factors were taken into con-sideration in forming the pro-posed plan. We are trying to cut down so that we dont have to buy as much new equipment to save money, Lear said. Our poll workers are going to be less because minimum wage went up. Everything is domino effect. John Mayo, president of the HANNAH O. BROWN/ Lake City ReporterHorne during Friday mornings press conference. POLLING continued on 3A Thousands cheer Fort White gradsBy LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comJust hours after underclassmen rushed from the halls toward the freedom of summer vacation, the Fort White High School Class of 2012 gathered in shiny, black graduation gowns. Anxious, chatty and proud, the students walked togeth-er into Arrowhead Stadium where thousands of parents and friends waved, held signs and hollered their graduates name. About 150 seniors became high school gradu-ates Friday night during the 11th commencement ceremony at the current Fort White High. Co-valedictorian Miranda Amaya said she felt privi-leged to be at the top of her class. Its always been something Ive dreamed about, she said. Amaya said earning good grades was important to her starting in elementary school. She will attend the University of Florida next year to study music and dance. Amaya said her most memorable experience was leading the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade this year, after audition-ing with the Macys Great American Marching Band. Amaya opened the graduation with a saxophone solo of God Bless the USA. God has gotten me this far and hes gonna take me the rest of the way, she said. During her address to the class, Amaya said what seemed like our entire life was preparation for our lives. While thanking her parents, both teachers at Fort White, Amaya broke into A handful of plump blueberries is placed in a crate for consumers to purchase during the 19th annual Blueberry Festival Frida y in Wellborn.

According to Dennille Decker, executive director of the Chamber of Commerce, Scott plans to speak on his plan to create 700,000 jobs in seven years. Scott has also expressed interest in hearing from local citizens about what the community is doing to increase jobs and strengthen the economy. Decker said the Chamber of Commerce plans to talk about their partnership with Plum Creek and the RACEC Catalyst Project.

AROUND FLORIDA Friday: 7-9-16-21 4 Friday: 9-19-23-26-29 Saturday: Afternoon: 4-2-6 Friday Evening: 8-0-8 Saturday: Afternoon: 4-6-3-0 Friday Evening: 3-1-1-5 Saturday: N/A KEY WEST An annual Ernest Hemingway look-alike contest in the Florida Keys is seeking entries online. The Virtual Papa Hemingway Look-Alike Contest began Friday on the Florida Keys tourism councils Facebook page. Stocky, bearded men who resemble Hemingway can submit photos through June 22. The author lived and wrote in Key West throughout the 1930s. Public voting is sched uled June 23-29 to choose 10 finalists. The winner will win a trip to Key West to compete in a preliminary round of the 2012 Sloppy Joes Papa Hemingway Look-Alike Contest. The contest at Sloppy Joes Bar takes place during Key Wests annual Hemingway Days festival, set for July 17-22. Hemingway Days also features a marlin tourna ment and a short story contest coordinated by the authors granddaughter, Lorian Hemingway. Man allegedly sold fake Rolexes CAPE CORAL A southwest Florida man has been arrested for allegedly selling counterfeit Rolex watches. According to the Lee County Sheriffs Office, James Lynch of Cape Coral posted the watches for sale in an online clas sified advertisement on Craigslist. The sheriffs office says an undercover detective purchased five watches from Lynch Thursday. Other detectives followed Lynch to his home, where they found 70 counterfeit Rolex, Breitling, Omega and Movado watches. The sheriffs office says detectives also found fake Oakley sunglasses and Louis Vuitton purses, wal lets and belts. Deputies say the retail value that the counterfeit items defrauded the real manufacturers is between $750,000 and $1 million. Lynch posted $5,000 bond Friday on a seconddegree felony charge of selling counterfeit items over $20,000. Jail records did not show whether he had an attorney. Stimulus money boosts reefs KEY LARGO Coral reef restoration along Floridas shores has been getting a boost from fed eral stimulus money. The American Recovery and Restoration Act of 2009 provided $3.3 mil lion to grow about 30,000 threatened staghorn and elkhorn coral colonies in underwater nurseries. About 10,000 of the fastgrowing corals are being transplanted in eight areas along a 300-mile reef tract from Broward County to the Florida Keys, and in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The goal of the trans plants is to spawn tens of thousands more coral colonies. Were just giving them a jump start, said The Nature Conservancys James Byrne, the marine biologist overseeing the three-year project. Now, if they can suc cessfully reproduce, it will blow away anything we can do, he told The Miami Herald. The money was part of $167 million given to coast line restoration projects; the entire stimulus pack age totaled $831 billion. The funding, which cre ated or supported 56 jobs, ends in December. Before, most coral res toration efforts focused on places with large (vessel) groundings, said Sean Morton, superintendent of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. This is the first attempt to do it reef-wide and turn around a long-term trend of coral reef decline. Scientists say staghorn and elkhorn coral popula tions have declined by about 90 percent through out the Caribbean over the last 30 years. Many factors have contributed to the decline, including a die-off of algae-eating spiny sea urchins, disease caused by bleaching from rising water temperatures, ocean acidification, water pollu tion and hurricanes. If you went snorkel ing or diving anywhere in the Caribbean in the early s, youd see corals everywhere, Byrne said. Staghorn used to be the dominant one on the reef, providing almost all the habitat for small juvenile fish to go into. And elk horn dominated the top of the reef, building big reef crests that waves break on. In 2006, elkhorn and staghorn were the first corals to be put on the threatened list under the Endangered Species Act. Staghorn is a thin ner branching colony that looks like the thin antlers of a young stag, said Erich Bartels, coral science manager at Mote Marine Laboratory. Elkhorn looks like big moose antlers that go out in a big fan shape. Both corals are impor tant to Floridas ecosystem and economy, scientists say. This is restoring nature for peoples sake. These habitats are natures infrastructure, said Rob Brumbaugh, The Nature Conservancys director of global marine restoration. Were making fish. When you make fish, you make jobs. Its a good invest ment. Dead baby found in trunk FORT LAUDERDALE A South Florida man was being held without bond in the death of a 1month-old baby found in the trunk of a car. Janus Saintil was being held Saturday at the Broward County jail on charges of murder, carjacking with a firearm or weapon, kidnapping, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and armed robbery. The Broward Sheriffs Office says Saintil kid napped the babys mother, another female and a male adult Thursday. He alleg edly left the adults in Port St. Lucie and returned to Broward County with the baby. TAMPA This is no ordinary friendship or concert tour. When country superstars Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw kick off their highly anticipated 22-city sta dium tour Saturday in Tampa, it will be the high point of their careers and friendship. The two men met at a bar in Nashville more than 20 years ago. Chesney had just moved to the city and didnt know anyone. McGraw had a record contract but had yet to put out a single. McGraw joked in an interview at Raymond James Stadium on Friday that they would hang out at each oth ers apartments depending on who had paid the electric bill that month. Thats not a lie, Chesney added. Neither dreamed they would ever headline a tour, much less enter ter ritory attempted by very few music acts of any genre as they co-headline this tour together. Today they are two of country musics top draws and by combining forces on The Brothers of the Sun tour theyre launching what some are calling country musics biggest tour ever. You dont dream that, said Chesney, pointing at the enormous stage inside the stadium. I just wanted a song on the radio. Added McGraw: We wanted to have big careers. We wanted to go out and set the world on fire. But you know, in the back of your mind, you always think, If I could just get a hit song, Id be happy. The tour, which also includes Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and Jake Owen, is so much more than a hit song or even your usual arena show. Its comprised of three complete stage systems, 85 tractortrailers, 240 roadies and two culinary staffs, according to tour manager Ed Wannebo, who spoke to the media Friday as McGraw and Chesney joked and whispered in each others ears nearby like schoolboys. The tour and especially the stage set consumed Chesney. It started with ideas scrawled on a pen and napkin and planning and preparation began months ago. Building that, Chesney said while pointing to the stage, Theres a lot that goes into it. I have my hands on basically everything on that stage, the way it looks, the way it moves, everything. Thats just the way I am. Im very hands-on. I care what it looks like, because I want to give the fans the best possible expe rience. McGraw said he and Chesney initially wanted to do just a couple of large shows, but the plan grew. The first show in Tampa is sure to be a large one; when Chesney played there in 2011, he drew 50,548 fans. Each performer will have his own set and the pair, who released the dual single Feel Like a Rock Star in anticipation of the tour, will join together to top off the night. Potter will likely join Chesney for a rendition of their steamy hit You and Tequila. And McGraw, fresh off a new deal with Big Machine Records, will unveil news songs hes been working on for his next album. You try to entertain the last guy that you see in the very top row back there, McGraw said. Make him feel special, make him feel like his money was worth it. Oprah Winfrey launches Oprahs Book Club 2.0 NEW YORK Oprah Winfrey is back in the book club business, updated for the digital age. Oprahs Book Club 2.0, a joint project of Winfreys OWN network and her O magazine, begins Monday with Cheryl Strayeds popular mem oir Wild. Along with the traditional paper version, featuring the circular Oprah book club logo, special eeditions will be made available that include Winfreys comments and a readers guide. An interview with Strayed will air July 22 on OWNs Super Soul Sunday and on Oprah Radio. Readers will be able to share opin ions through Facebook and Twitter and Winfreys website, www.oprah. com. This is way different from the old book club, Winfrey said in an online video announcement, taped in her Chicago office and posted Friday on her website. This time its an interactive, online club for our digital world. The new club will test whether Winfrey still has clout with the reading public, especially when her network audience is far smaller than what she enjoyed before. Starting in the mid-1990s, Winfrey made hits out of countless books through her previous club, featured on her syndi cated talk show. But sales had fallen off by the time her show ended, in 2011. One of her last picks, a combined edition of Charles Dickens A Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations, was in part a victim of the e-book market as many readers simply downloaded free, public-domain ver sions of the novels. The initial response to Fridays announcement was slow compared to the former club, when the book would often top best-seller charts within hours of Winfrey reveal ing the title. As of Friday evening, Wild, ranked No. 173 on Amazon. coms best-seller list and No. 265 on the Kindle e-book charts. Wild was published in March by Alfred A. Knopf, an imprint of Random House Inc. Andy Samberg leaving Saturday Night Live LOS ANGELES A spokes woman for Andy Samberg said the actor-comedian is leaving Saturday Night Live. Sambergs publicist, Carrie Byalick, said Friday that he wont return as a cast member next sea son. Sambergs exit follows that of SNL cast member Kristen Wiig. Like other Saturday Night Live alumni, Samberg will be seen on the big screen. His new movie with Adam Sandler, Thats My Boy, is out this month.

local chapter of the NAACP, said he was worried about the previous draft of the plan, which had only one polling location for all of Lake City. Having people come to one place, they see a line and they are not going to want to take the time to vote, Mayo said. Its not as bad as the people in the community thought, Councilman Jake Hill said. They are combining the vot ing precincts but you will still be able to vote, you just wont have as many places to go to. Horne also described a change in the numbering sys tem for district precincts. While I understand change is difficult for all of us I feel that the new number system will be less confusing, Horne said. The first number will represent the district while the second two represent your precinct number. For example, 101, 1 is your district number and 01 is your precinct num ber. An example for Lake City is 112. One is your country district number and 12 is your city precinct number. In the prior system, precincts were numbered from one to twenty-five consecutively and the precinct number in no way corresponded with the number of the voting district. Now you know immedi ately, Frank Singletary of the Supervisor of Elections office said of the new system. Horne said there are two options for absentee and early voting. The Fort White Community Center and the Supervisor of Elections Office will have extended hours to accommodate early and absen tee voters. The hours for both centers will be 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. from August 4 to August 11. Absentee ballots can be acquired by calling the Supervisor of Elections office. Jessie R.

Fifty-seven percent of county ninth-graders passed the exam, which exceeded the state average of 48 percent. Overall, 58 percent of county students in grades six through 12 passed, compared with 59 percent statewide. Any student taking Algebra 1 or a similar course is required to take the computer-based exam, which replaced the ninthgrade math FCAT. End-ofcourse exams are being phased-in as replacements for FCATs in several high school-level courses. This years freshman class is the first that must pass the test to graduate. For students who entered ninth grade last year, the test counts as 30 percent of their overall course grade, but it is not a graduation requirement. At Columbia High, 49 percent of students tested passed the exam. At Fort White Middle/High, 66 percent of tested students passed. Superintendent Michael Millikin said it was hard to compare the two high schools scores as CHS has twice the number of ninthgraders taking the test and middle-school scores are factored into Fort Whites passing rate. Fort White is a combina tion school, so the states report lumped middle and high school passing rates together. The students who failed will have to retake the course or get other reme diation before taking the test again. Middle school students who took the exam did much better, generally because younger students who are placed in Algebra 1 classes are those who have already shown strong math skills. At Richardson Middle, 100 percent of the 24 stu dents that took the exam passed. At Lake City Middle, 98 percent of the 53 students tested passed. Eighty-seven percent of students in grades six through eight taking the test for the first time passed it statewide. But fewer stu dents took it, as algebra is not required in middle school. Overall the districts ninth-graders and middle schoolers did very well compared to the state, Millikin said. State education officials said the results across the board were better than expected. Ninth-graders excel in algebra By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org LIVE OAK -A Live Oak woman was arrested Friday and faces charges in connection with the 2010 death of her three-monthold daughter, Suwannee County Sheriffs Office reports said. Morgan Anna Eilts, 19, 9849 77th Place, Live Oak, was charged with aggra vated manslaughter of a child under one year of age and child abuse in connec tion with the case. She was booked into the Suwannee County Jail. Reports said Eilts con fessed to being frustrat ed and irritable during September and October 2010 with the infant. Eilts told authorities she sat the child down on a coffee table, accidentally bumping the babys head. Eilts also told authorities of an incident in which she was changing the babys diaper and was pretty rough with her legs and kinda angry and pulled the childs legs toward her, pulled her up by the legs and leaned her legs back on the babys chest. Eilts described it as jerking the victims legs down. Eilts said on another occasion she was frustrat ed with her husband and was bouncing the child on her knee, they lay the baby down while she was cry ing. She said she then grabbed the babys arm and squeezed and bent it and she heard a crack. Eilts also admitted on a different occasion to shak ing the infant and demon strated that for an investi gator. Eilts also told authorities that one day she was in the bat tub with the infant holding her up in the palm of her hand and the infant slipped out of her hands and hit her head pretty hard on the bottom of the tub. Authorities reported the incidents occurred between Sept. 1, 2010 Oct. 15, 2010. Reports said the child was unresponsive at the scene when authori ties first arrived and she was taken to a Gainesville Hospital and placed on life support. The decision was later made to take her off life support and she died Oct. 20, authorities said. Live Oak woman charged in death of infant daughter By LAURA HAMPSON email@example.com After a breakfast of eggs, bis cuits and bacon, Lake City residents expressed their compliments and concerns to police and city officials. The Lake City Police Department held its quarterly Breakfast with the Chief community forum Saturday morning at Challenge Learning Center. About 40 residents attend ed to meet face-to-face with Chief Argatha Gilmore, air problems within the community, learn about LCPDs volunteer programs and hear an update on the departments work. A free breakfast was part of the deal. Theres no way the police depart ment can resolve issues in the depart ment and community without your help, Gilmore said. She encouraged residents to voice their issues, saying the department has thick enough skin to take it. Im here to take the blows from the com munity, she said. During her presentation, Gilmore gave a report on police activity and followups on issues presented at the last breakfast. Gilmore said as public servants, we are all things to all people. At the last breakfast, not one issue that came before us dealt with the police department specifically. However LCPD is a team with the city and county, she said. Police officials took residents concerns to the appropriate departments, such as code enforcement or public works, which also had employees present for the forum. Since the last meeting new road signs were installed, pit bulls that ran loose in a neighborhood were removed and litter was picked up along a county road, all because of residents comments. During Saturdays forum, residents asked for increased patrol on specific streets and intersections, tree trim ming at intersections with obstructed views and solutions for abandoned buildings. Gilmore said empty buildings can become crime havens, so police will definitely look into boarding up win dows and entries. LCPD officers and staff took notes during the forum and will contact residents about their concerns, she said. Several residents complimented officers for their personable work and Gilmore for her leadership. If you see officers doing some thing great, take the time to let us know, she said. In the three months since the last forum, calls for service have decreased by 3,235 to 10,148 calls, Gilmore said during her presentation. Felony charges decreased by 31 to 163 charges. Assault decreased by 30 cases to 96. Homicide increased to one, from zero last quarter. Burglary cases increased by 48 instances to 130. Property crime is an issue in our community, she said. Police are warning residents to lock before you leave, Gilmore said. Increased pres ence by officers, citizens on patrol and organized neighborhood watch groups will help prevent thefts and make residents feel safer, she said. Officers closed 30 percent of the 210 assigned investigations last quar ter, she said. The top five calls were for traffic crashes, alarms, burglaries, domestic disputes and thefts/shoplifting, she said. Gilmore said residents can always contact LCPD by phone, even for non-emergencies. However, there is nothing like having the police chief and staff gathered in one place to address the communitys concerns, she said. You are an awesome community. Thank you so much, she said. The next Breakfast with the Chief will be in about three months, but a date has not been set. Key issues addressed during Breakfast with the Chief LAURA HAMPSON/ Lake City Reporter Lake City Police Chief Argatha GIlmore listens to a resident Saturday during the Breakfast with the Chief community forum at Challenge Learning Center.

W hen it comes to high state taxes, people vote with their feet. The Tax Foundations Migration Calculator shows how people have moved state to state between 1993 and 2010, and the amount of adjusted gross income each state gained or lost over the same period. In general, states with higher taxes have lost residents and income to states with a lower tax bite. This is simple self-interest at work. It makes economic sense for those who want to preserve their estates for their posterity, or who sim-ply want to keep more of their hard-earned money for them-selves, to live in places that dont treat them like ATMs. Florida gained $67 billion in adjusted growth income from net migration between 2000-2010. The Sunshine State has no income, estate or inheritance taxes, and most new Floridians came from states that for the most part do, including New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Michigan. Even some pro-tax liberal politicians have made the move. Between 2000 and 2010, some 208,784 Ohioans renounced their citizenship and became residents of Florida, taking more than $8 billion of Ohios tax base with them, Scott A. Hodge points out at the Tax Foundations web-site. Ironically, one of these tax avoiders was former Ohio Sen. Howard Metzenbaum a lifelong advocate of the estate tax. The senator apparently would prefer that people do as he says, rather than as he does. Critics of the analysis point out that there are more rea-sons than tax structure that cause people to move around the country. This is true; the regulatory environment, the number of available jobs and the general business climate also play important roles. In most cases, growing states are those that have sound fiscal prac-tices, pro-business policies and smaller per-capita government expenditures. The conclusion is the same. All things being equal, states that pursue a gen-erally conservative, free-market growth agenda flourish while those that make it difficult to make money and tax the income at higher rates dont. The only major factor not tied to politics is the climate. Global warm-ing was supposed to make the northern part of the country more temperate and reverse the southward migration trend. The data in the Migration Calculator may supply more evidence that warming just isnt happening. Migration trends have significant political consequences. In redistricting based on the 2010 census, eight states gained seats in Congress, and 10 states lost representatives. Seats mostly flowed from high-tax jurisdictions to low-tax ones. This will have an impact on the 2012 presiden-tial race. Eleven of the 12 lost congressional seats (thus lost electoral votes) are in states that went for Barack Obama in 2008. States that went Republican that year gained 10 additional electoral votes for 2012. The more conservative its economic policies, the more people a state attracts, which means more representatives in Congress preaching the limited government gospel, and more Republican presidents seek-ing to put it into effect. This is the laboratory of democracy at work. Some states win, some states lose, but America as a whole benefits. ONE OPINION T heres no way to put a happy face on the May jobs report: It stinks. The unemployment rate rose from 8.1 percent to 8.2 percent, ending an 11-month run when the rate was dropping, You can argue -and the White House will -that the increase in the unemployment rate was because so many Americans, 642,000 of us, tried to reenter the workforce. Statistically, thats true but of little comfort to the 12.7 million still unemployed, a number that rose by 220,000. The grimmer number is that last month the economy created only 69,000 jobs, the fewest in a year, and to make it even worse, the government revised down-ward by 49,000 jobs the number of jobs created in the previous two months. To begin returning to robust employment, we need to return to the levels of January through March, when 226,000 jobs were being created a month. Construction, a bellwether industry, lost 28,000 jobs while manufacturing, transportation, warehousing, education and health-care all added jobs; gov-ernments, the hospitality and leisure industry and professional services all shed jobs. On its White House blog the Obama administration said the unemployment figures should be considered in the context of other, more positive economic trends, which is how economists would regard them but is of little comfort to someone who cant find a job. The blog had a list of job-creating initiatives the White House had sent to Congress but that the lawmakers had failed to act on. Mitt Romney called the May figures devastating and again touted his background in private business but without saying how, specifically, that would result in more jobs. The unemployment figure is perhaps our most politically sensi-tive statistic, and Mays number was clearly bad news for the White House, but the U.S. econ-omy is so massive the politicians can only affect it at the margins unless they almost willfully drive it off a cliff, as could happen this coming Jan. 1 if tax and spending issues are not resolved. Even then there are significant external forces outside their con-trol: major defaults in Europe, a partial collapse of the eurozone and a slowing economy in China, to name a few. The key question is whether Mays numbers are only a bump in the road or the start of a lon-ger-term trend. Lets hope its merely a statistical pothole. Mays jobless report; frankly, it stinks LETTERS TO THE EDITOR What a shame that letters to the editor stray so far afield as to branch out into areas never intended, but it demonstrates the extremity of racial tension in America today. Marshall Morper is correct that race is a part of todays politi-cal climate, but I never said that it wasnt. My responses to Mr. Presleys letters addressed the liberties he takes with the truth regarding racial issues. While Mr. Morper makes some good points, Im a bit unsure about the accuracy of his assertion that the food stamp program has shrunk during the Obama years. And his use of the Gingrich comment calling Obama the food stamp president to prove racial bias is perplexing, to say the least. Does Mr. Morper perhaps associate food stamps with race? Im flattered that Mr. Morper believes the Lake City Reporter is merely an extension of me and my opinions, and I wish to thank him for that exaggerated estima-tion of my own importance. His assessment of me as a passive-aggressive anarchist has in no way undermined my psyche, but perhaps a clarification of the term passive-aggressive would be helpful to him in his future name-calling forays. Definition of passive-aggressive: Someone who retaliates in a subtle way rather than speaking his mind. Just which part of my responses did you find subtle? Only because Mr. Morper introduced politics into this ongo-ing discussion am I making it a point here, so let me be sure no sublety exists when making clear that I would rather vote for a rabid tomcat than Barack Obama. Furthermore, Im not interested in the color of either the tom-cat OR Mr. Obama. But those of you who want to continue our present welfare state, wasteful spending, government controlled healthcare and flagrant agency corruption until our country is completely bankrupt have the right to vote any way you want. Nevertheless, I would implore my many African-American acquaintances who are self sup-porting, pay taxes and under-stand that government handouts only enslave rather than help, to at least entertain the idea of not casting your vote for Barack Obama based SOLELY on his color. And according to current projections, 95 percent of you will do exactly that.

Editors note: See coverage of this event on Page 3A.Actions speak louder To paraphrase G.W. Bush during one of his wars, Youre either with us or youre against us! That particular expression may have been an oversimplifi-cation, but it so resonated with Republican Party adherents. The quote was relative and applicable now, then and most certainly dur-ing the Vietnam War. Why then did G.W. Bush, Jeb Bush, Cheney, Gingrich, Perry, Cain, Romney, OReilly, Rove, Trump, Dennis Miller and Ted Nugent stand with the Communists? They felt no call to defend our way of life. These listed are the current faces and voices of the GOP. Priorities other than our coun-trys well-being and our freedoms didnt allow America to even make their short lists. Actions, words, and deeds defined intent! This group might as well be charter members of the Jane Fonda Fan Club. With much regularity these members accuse people with whom they disagree of being socialists or communists. Hearing or read-ing this discourse raises the same ire that I felt and still feel for my communist enemy. When you hear the slander socialist invoked, its corporate America, Karl Rove and The GOP peeing on your leg. It takes a lot of gall for any person who had other pri-orities during the fight against communism to act indignant, now patriotic, using socialist as a catchphrase and methodi-cally, relentlessly advocating war. (Conflicts they certainly would not participate in.) Referring to any of these faces and voices as American patriots is a slap in the face of millions of American patriots whom truly are, reinforced by words, actions, deeds, blood and effort. As an added thought: God will never forsake America nor forget those whom transgress against her and do not atone.Darrell AndersonLake City What part did you find subtle?

After three years and more than a trillion in stimulus that was sup-posed to create millions of jobs, were seeing the trend moving in the opposite direction. The U.S. economy created a paltry 69,000 jobs last month, push-ing the unemployment rate up to 8.2 percent, according to Fridays government figures. That bit of bad news overshadowed another fact. The Bureau of Labor Statistics fig-ures originally claimed 115,000 positions were created in April. Not so, according to the latest revision that says only 77,000 were created. The increase in long-term unemployment and the length of time spent in the unemployment lines smells like stagnation, not recovery The dire state is revealed in the economic-growth reports that dropped from 2.2 percent to 1.9 percent for the first quarter of 2012. Consumers feel it, and their confidence as measured by the Conference Boards Index plunged 3.8 points into what economists consider recession territory. As of May, 5.4 million Americans were officially con-sidered long-term unemployed, that is, they were without work for more than 27 weeks. These long-term unemployed consti-tute an ever-increasing share of the overall jobless tally, almost 46 percent now, up from 44 per-cent in April. Before a true recovery can be kicked off, it must be acknowledged that the Keynesian bag of policy tricks is empty. Stimulus spending on a massive scale was tried; it failed. Instead of channeling Jimmy Carters tax-and-spend policies that created the reces-sion of the 80s, its time to bring back the low-tax, small-government ideas of Ronald Reagan because we know they work.

Scotts communications office had not released the time or place of the meeting at press time. I think the governor is going to walk away impressed at how forward-thinking and ready the citizens of Columbia County are for industry in our area, Decker said. Williams reportedly took the woman to Branford and then Mayo instead of taking her home after she asked him numer-ous times to do so. The woman said she attempted to leave the vehicle sev-eral times and Williams told her she could not and physically forced her back into the vehicle at least once. The woman also accused Williams of touch-ing her inappropriately by grabbing her between her legs. When they arrived in Live Oak, the woman reportedly called her husband when she and Williams stopped at a store. When she and Williams stopped at a gas station, the victim told the clerk that she had been kidnapped and asked him to call authorities. The clerk called 9-1-1 and notified the Live Oak Police Department, but deputy Wayne Kelly was in the area of the call and saw a vehicle similar to the description given by dispatchers nearly hit a truck. Kelly followed the vehicle and reportedly saw the driver run a stop sign, so he activated his emergency lights and attempted to conduct a traffic stop. Williams stopped at Mussey Avenue and U.S. Highway 90 and when he exited his patrol car and approached the vehicle, Williams sped away, head-ing east on U.S. 90. Kelly reported he could hear the victim yelling for help. Williams continued east on the roadway, failing to stop for authorities, travel-ing in speeds in excess of 80 mph, Kelly reported. Deputy Chuck Tompkins passed Williams and drove in front of him, and was able to get Williams to slow to around 50 mph. Kelly reported he saw Williams swerve to the left and right and come up behind Tompkins vehicle and then swerve towards Tompkins vehicle, strik-ing it on the drivers side. Other units got in front of Williams vehicle and again impeded his prog-ress, slowing him down near the intersection of County Road 417 and U.S. 90. Williams attempted to pass the units on the roadways northbound shoulder and ran off the road, losing control of the vehicle and striking a road sign. Williams was then arrested. During an interview with authorities, the victim told law enforcement officers she was in fear for her life and she was held against her will throughout the incident.

Co-valedictorian Brandon Gonzalez said he wouldnt have made it to the top of the class without his familys support. They are the ones that shaped my personal-ity and taught me to work hard, he said. Gonzalez said he motivated himself to study and work hard, although he was known to sleep in class and still make high marks. Next year he will attend the University of Florida to study engineering. Im so excited because its such a good school and its a new chapter of my life, he said. Salutatorian Sarah Cole said she always worked to keep her grades up. I dont like to slack because I feel guilty later, she said. However, she was surprised to make salutatorian. I thought they were playing a joke on me, Cole said. High school was a blur, she said: It went by really fast. Next year she will attend Florida State University to study fine arts and plans to earn a masters degree. Cole said her father is an FSU alumnus, which was a big influence early in life. Ive wanted to go there since I knew what college was,she said. This is definitely a class with a lot of personality and school spirit that will surely be missed when they are gone, said Christina Larsen, senior class sponsor. Senior Jonathan Dupree said after losing his father as a middle schooler and his grandfather as a fresh-man, his teachers and foot-ball helped him make it through. Dupree, who played defensive tackle for Fort White, will play for Glenville State College in West Virginia. Its always been a dream of mine, he said. He plans to study nursing, walk on as baseball player and hopefully play profes-sional football. Dupree said he remembers being a freshman play-er and earning the teams respect, which he will do again as a college freshman. By working to earn that respect, they start believing in you more, he said. Although nervous about being far from his family, Dupree said he is excited for college. Ive never seen snow before, he said. Im excited but sad at the same time, said senior Amy Matthews of graduating. Fort White has been really good to me, she said. Mathews said she plans to study nursing at Florida Gateway College. Senior Emily McDonald said she also plans to study nursing at FGC. Being with all the other seniors at Grad Bash in Orlando was memo-rable, she said. I wouldnt want to spend my senior year anywhere else but Fort White, she said. Principal Keith Hatcher said the school is a close-knit community that has cried and laughed together. He told seniors during the ceremony they will no lon-ger see each other daily, but will instead have to make arrangements and reunions. Stay in touch with each other, he said, adding that with social media theres no excuse not to. We all practically grew up together here, said Caitlin Congi, student body presi-dent, while addressing the class. I learned Fort White isnt just a school, its a family. GRADS: In Fort White Continued From Page 1A By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comF resh-picked blueberries were hard to keep in stock Saturday. Jellies, cobblers, pies and pancakes of the blueberry variety were also hot commodities during the 19th annual Wellborn Blueberry Festival. Upwards of 6,000 visitors circled Andrews Square in downtown Wellborn Friday and Saturday. On Saturday morning alone, 900 people bought blueberry pancakes, said Kathie Snowden, festival chair-women. The two Wellborn-area blueberry growers at the event sold out of the fresh fruit three times by Saturday afternoon, said Carol Gibbons of Wellborn Farms. Festival-goers lined up while waiting for a new delivery of berries straight from the farm, she said. Its really an old-time festival, Gibbons said, compared to other, more commercialized festivals. This is more laid back and relax-ing country living, she said. This is the way the world is supposed to be. The festival is a celebration of the annual blueberry harvest and the major fundraiser for the non-profit Wellborn Community Association. Festival organizers estimated crowds between six to eight thou-sand. It was absolutely phenom-enal, said Wendell Snowden, presi-dent of the Wellborn Community Association. The rain yesterday cooled things off, he said. It was really a bear-able day heat-wise. Ethel McDonald of Maries Home Canning said she expected to sell all of her jellies and jams. She sold more than 100 jars of Mayhaw jelly by Saturday and her blueberry jelly was long gone. McDonald makes all of her products fresh on her childhood farm in White Springs. She likes selling directly to customers at festivals to keep costs down, she said. Unlike store-bought jams and jellies, McDonalds jams and jellies use only pure, basic ingredients, made basically the same way both her mother and grandmother canned, she said. They say it tastes fresher, because it is, McDonald said. I really love canning, she said. Its just nice, wholesome fun, said Betty Adazzio of Live Oak, while listening to the childrens talent contest. Although too late to buy blueberries, its kind of like a social event as well, she said. The annual Wellborn Blueberry Festival is much more than just jellies and cobblers, pancak es and pies. Its all about the atmosphere, about laid back country livin g.

Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & STATE SUNDAY, JUNE 3, 2012 7A 386-755-4911Discover How Much Better Your World Can Sound Call (386) 466-0902 By KYLE HIGHTOWER andMIKE SCHNEIDERAssociated PressSANFORD The credibility of Trayvon Martins shooter could become an issue at trial after a Florida judge said that George Zimmerman and his wife lied to the court about their finances to obtain a bond, legal experts say. Thats because the case hinges on jurors believing Zimmermans account of what happened the night that the 17-year-old was killed. Zimmerman wasnt charged in the case until more than a month after the shooting, and the for-mer neighborhood watch volunteer has maintained that he shot Martin in self-defense under Floridas so-called stand your ground law. Protests were held across the nation, and the case spurred debate about whether race was a factor in Zimmermans actions and in the initial police han-dling of the case. Martin was black; Zimmermans father is white and his mother is from Peru. The questioning of Zimmermans truthfulness by the judge on Friday could undermine his cred-ibility if it is brought up at trial. It also may com-plicate how his defense presents him as a witness, said Orlando-area attorney Randy McClean, a former prosecutor. The other key witness, unfortunately, is deceased, McClean said. Basically, Zimmerman is going to be asking the jury to believe his version of the facts. ... As the case stands now, his credibility is absolutely critical to the case. Zimmerman had not turned himself in as of early Saturday evening, the day after his bond was revoked. He must do so by Sunday afternoon. He went into hiding in the weeks after the shoot-ing amid an impassioned debate about the case, and his exact whereabouts since he bonded out of jail remain unclear. It also was not immediately clear exactly where Zimmerman would surrender. Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder for the February shooting. He maintains he shot Martin in self-defense because the unarmed 17-year-old was beating him up after confronting Zimmerman about follow-ing him in a gated commu-nity outside Orlando. Witness accounts of the rainy night that Martin was shot are spotty. There is no video of the fight, though photos released by pros-ecutors show Zimmerman with wounds to his face and the back of his head. Zimmermans credibility would be important if his attorney, Mark OMara, tries to get a judge with-out the jury to dismiss the charges based on the law, said Orlando defense attor-ney David Hill. If he was in on something that was not truth-fully revealed to the judge, when there is a stand your ground hearing, of course youre going to second-guess him, Hill said. Both McClean and Hill said OMara would be able to challenge the admissibil-ity of the bond revocation at trial by questioning its relevance. Zimmerman was arrested 44 days after the killing, and during a bond hearing in April, his wife, Shellie, testified that the couple had limited funds available. Zimmerman took the stand at the hearing and apolo-gized to Martins parents. Prosecutors pointed out in their motion that Zimmerman had $135,000 available then. It had been raised from donations through a website he had set up. They suggested more has been collected since and deposited in a bank account. Shellie Zimmerman was asked about the website at the hearing, but she said she didnt know how much money had been raised. Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester set bail at $150,000. The 28-year-old was freed a few days later after posting $15,000 in cash which is typical. Prosecutor Bernie De la Rionda complained Friday, This court was led to believe they didnt have a single penny. It was misleading and I dont know what words to use other than it was a bla-tant lie. The judge agreed and ordered Zimmerman returned to jail by Sunday afternoon. Does your client get to sit there like a potted plant and lead the court down the primrose path? Thats the issue, Lester said. He cant sit back and obtain the benefit of a lower bond based upon those material falsehoods. The defense countered that Zimmerman and his wife never used the money for anything, which indicat-ed there was no deceit. OMara said it wouldnt be a problem to bring Zimmerman back into cus-tody by the deadline. The judge said he would schedule a hearing after Zimmerman is back in cus-tody so he could explain himself. Police in Sanford did not immediately arrest Zimmerman, cit-ing Floridas stand your ground law that gives wide latitude to use deadly force rather than retreat in a fight if people believe they are in danger of being killed or seriously injured. Benjamin Crump, an attorney for Trayvon Martins parents, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, said his clients have always said Zimmerman should remain in jail until trial, which OMara said he believed wouldnt be until next year. Crump was asked if he thought that if Zimmerman would be willing to lie about his finances that he would be willing to lie about what happen the night Martin was killed. We fully expect that the special prosecu-tor will make George Zimmermans credibility be front and center in this entire case, Crump said. And whatever dishon-esty that comes forth by George Zimmerman that they can prove, you can best believe it will become the issue of this case. The revocation of Zimmermans bond also puts pressure on OMara not to delay the trial, McClean said. When your client is out on bond, the pressure is much lighter to rush to trial ... because your client is sitting at home, he said. When your client is sitting at the Seminole County Jail, your client is going to want this resolved. Zimmerman credibility may be hurt by bond dispute This combo made from Feb. 27, 2012 photos provided by the State Attorneys Office shows George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot Trayvon Martin. The photo and reports were among more than 200 pages of photos a nd eyewitness accounts released by prosecutors Thursday, Ma y 17, 2012. ASSOCIATED PRESSFrom staff reportsTwo men face criminal charges for allegedly bur-glarizing more than 20 stor-age units and stealing jew-elry, musical instruments, hunting equipment, elec-tronics and cash, according to authorities. Bryan Christopher McDonald, 21, of 800 Symphony Loop and Robert Daniel Selves, 22, who is listed as homeless, were each charged with 27 counts of burglary, 27 counts of criminal mis-chief, 27 counts of theft and dealing in stolen property. Each is being held in the Columbia County Detention Facility on $237,000 bond. According to Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports, on Tuesday sheriffs office deputies responded to Community Self Storage near State Road 47 to investigate a number of burglaries that occurred the night before. Deputies reported that more than 20 storage units had been broken into at the location. Sgt. Ed Seifert, Columbia County Sheriffs Office pub-lic information officer, said authorities estimate that a total of $25,000 worth of goods and cash was stolen. Detective Glenn Wyche initiated a thorough inves-tigation and was able to develop two suspects dur-ing the early stages of the investigation. The suspects were identified by surveil-lance videos and transac-tion reports from a local pawn shop where some of the stolen jewelry was sold, reports said.Two men charged with burglary of storage units McDonaldSelves

Lake City Reporter SPORTS Sunday, June 3, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?ContactTim KirbySports Editor754firstname.lastname@example.org Athletes of the Year JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Laremy Tunsil was named the Lake City Reporter Sports Athlete of the Year after his junior season for hi s play in football, weightlifting and basketball. Tunsil is o ne of the nations top-rated recruits entering the 2012 footb all season. Wrench repeatsTunsil earns national recognitionBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE T weaking a tradition takes a special reason. The selection of Alison Wrench as Lake City Reporter Sports Athlete of the Year presented a change in the process. The Fort White High senior won the title last year and there had never before been a repeat performance in the two-decade history of the recognition. Wrench, however, was a clear-cut choice. The overriding criterion for Athlete of the Year is participation in a variety of sports. Individual success takes a back seat to helping out teams and ultimately a school. Selflessness in support of team plays a part. Wrench not only played, but starred, in volleyball, soccer and softball for the Lady Indians. She has been playing at a high level throughout her years at Fort White. I have always done school and sports since I was little, Wrench said at senior breakfast day. It was hectic, but it is what I wanted to do, so I made it happen. On a lot of weekends I was up late Sunday doing homework. Several have achieved the top athlete recognition as an underclassman, but often the desire to play diminishes or they choose to concentrate on one sport. Wrench continued in several sports, and excelled enough to earn a scholarship to Thomas University in softball. I am proud that I am graduating after experiencing so much in my high school career, Wrench said. Going to the next level is what I always wanted to do and I am glad I accomplished that. Q Wrench said softball was her No. 1 sport and she began playing as a youngster on a travel team. After one year playing middle school ball at Fort White, she has been on the varsity since the seventh grade. Wrenchs softball honors: Rookie of the Year, 2007; Defensive Player of the Year, 2008; Coaches Award, 2009; Best Offense and Golden Glove, 2010; Lady Indian Award, 2011; Outstanding Offense, 2012. This past season, Wrench hit .556 (40 for 72) and scored 18 runs. She had a triple, six walks, and eight stolen bases while striking out three times. Her fielding percentage was 1.000. Wrench has a special bond with Cassie Sparks, who coached her the last two years and also played at Thomas. I want to thank Cassie for a great season and helping me go to the next level, Wrench said. The admiration is mutual. Both years Ive coached her, she has been a leader and asset to the team, Sparks said. She is one of those rare players, always willing to try new things and always giving 100 percent. She was committed to her school and represented us extraordinarily. Her character and personality have shaped her into a beautiful young lady inside and out. Wrench played where needed for the Lady Indians. As a senior, Sparks put her in center field to showcase her abilities. A teammate suffered an injury before the district tournament and Wrench agreed to go behind the plate and catch for the first time all year. Q Recreation league soccer was another childhood sport for Wrench and she played varsity at Fort White for five years with coach Perry Sauls. Wrenchs soccer awards: Young Gun, 2007-08; Most Valuable Defender, 2008-09; Most Valuable Defender, JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterLake City Reporter Sports Athlete of the Year Alison Wrench is shown next to the trophy case from her varsity career at Fort White High. WRENCH continued on 6B By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comH e is a gentle giant. His friends call him Lambo because hes as smooth as a Lamborghini and hes one of the nations top-rated recruits. And now Laremy Tunsil is the Lake City Reporter Sports Athlete of the Year. A man of few words, Tunsil doesnt let his mouth do the talking. Its all performance for the left tackle for Columbia Highs football team. But Tunsil is more than just a left tackle and the seventh-ranked prospect in the nation hes also a basketball player and a weightlifter. Between the three sports, Tunsil also finds time to maintain a 3.1 GPA in the classroom. But what makes Tunsil so special as an athlete? Just ask his coaches and its easy to find out. The first thing you notice about Laremy is that hes a physical specimen (6 feet-6 inches tall, 295 pounds), Columbia head football coach Brian Allen said. Laremy has all the other stuff to go with it. Its a matter of how hard he works and how hes bought into the conditioning program. Hes got the potential to be mentioned along with the best names that have played the position. Hes got all the tools. Hes got great two-step initial movement. Hes got good drive like the guys on Sunday. Hes just very special. Despite basketball being his second love, Columbia basketball coach Horace Jefferson still feels he had the ability to be a standout at the sport as well. From a basketball standpoint, hes an incredible athlete, Jefferson said. If he chose this sport, he could be very successful at it. He excels in both sports and everything hes got has been well deserved. And Jefferson said Tunsils attitude is one of the biggest factors to his success. Hes been a real treat to coach, Jefferson said. All the attention hes got, hes handled well. As a matter of fact, hes very humble. He could be a kid that could barely fit his head through the door, but hes a team player. Hell do whatever it takes to help the team. He could demand the ball more due to his size, but hes about the team. Its hard to imagine an TUNSIL continued on 6B

This absolutely helped, said Richardson Community Center/Annie Mattox North board president Brenda Johnson. The majority of people we had out today were to sign up for cheer-leading. The Jaguars did a little cheer and it helped us out. More than 60 people came through the display to look at what Pop Warner had to offer. I think the turnout was positive, cheer coordinator Renea Smith said. It helped people see what we were all about. The cheer-leaders go to a lot of events and it was good for them to come help us out being that the team is only an hour away. We usually only have one or two girls sign up, but we had more than 12 sign up today. The group also gave thanks to Zack Paulk for helping coordinate the event and bring the Jaguars to town.

Turned out the Gators right-hander was plenty good enough to make some college baseball history. Crawford threw the seventh no-hitter ever in the NCAA tournament, shutting down Bethune-Cookman in a 4-0 victo-ry in the opener of the Gainesville Regional on Friday night. When I came out for the eighth, I got really nervous and excited and thats when it hit me that I could get a no-hitter, Crawford said. I was pumped. It was crazy, but a lot of fun. I guess its a pretty big deal. Crawford, a sophomore who wasnt even part of the Gators three-man week-end rotation this season, faced the minimum 27 bat-ters. The only player to reach base was Bethune-Cookmans Jake Welch on a walk in the third inning, and Florida catcher Mike Zunino threw him out try-ing to steal. Crawford (6-2) struck out five and walked one for the Gators first no-hit-ter since 1991, by John Burke also the last one thrown in the NCAA tour-nament in a 2-0 win over Furman. Crawford needed just 98 pitches, throwing 70 for strikes, for Florida (43-18). It was the fifth no-hitter by a single pitcher in pro-gram history; Florida also has had three combined no-hitters.

Ali is a dream-cometrue player, Sauls said. She goes out and works hard and just does her job. Every coach wishes he had 10 of her and it would be a championship team. Wrench also made a switch to benefit the soccer team. A sweeper on defense since the eighth grade, Sauls asked her to move to goalkeeper her senior season. Wrench happily accepted the assignment and posted nine shutouts during a 10-8-2 run by the Lady Indians. One shutout came in a 0-0 tie with Columbia High and another in a 1-0 district tournament win over Newberry High in double overtime. We were playing around at practice and I told coach to let me play goalkeeper, Wrench said. He said, No, I need you on defense, but I ended up playing keeper the rest of the season. It was something different, a really fun experience. Sauls did present Wrench with one reward. I always said I wanted to score a goal before I graduated, Wrench said. With five minutes left in one game, coach put me up front and I scored. I was like, Yeah, I scored a goal before I graduated. Wrench was recruited to volleyball by coach Doug Wohlstein. In her first two years at Fort White, Wrench tried band, dance team and cheerleading. She also gave volleyball a shot and drew notice. Coach Wohlstein said I really like you and you should play, and thats how I got into volleyball, Wrench said. Wrench played middle school volleyball for a year and spent three years on the junior varsity before taking the varsity by storm her junior and senior years. She was named Most Valuable Player both years. Wrench also received a volleyball Scholar Athlete award in 2006. Wrench is second in Fort White volleyball with a career serve percentage of 93 percent, and second in career assists with 1,088. Ali was a great player to coach and worked real hard at volleyball even though it was a second sport, Wohlstein said. She is not only a top volleyball player to come through my program, she is a great young lady. It was a pleasure coaching her. Wrench proves hard work will win out, or give one a fighting chance, and that is her advice. Dont give up, Wrench said. I had so many people tell me I couldnt, and it killed me. I am happy I proved them wrong. You cant do it if you dont try. Wrench has her family as a great support group mom and dad Sandra and Gary Williams and grandparents Nancy and John Palmer. I love my family, they have been there through everything, Wrench said.

Recognition isnt really important to me, Tunsil said. I just want to do whatever I can to help the team win. Still, the off-the-field stuff has helped the Tigers gain notoriety from around the state. Tunsil receives letters daily and averages more than 10 phone calls per day. Ole Miss called me right before this interview, Tunsil said. I hear from coaches every day. But Tunsil doesnt plan on rushing his college decision. Hes got a list of schools on his radar including in-state schools Florida and Florida State. Georgia also remains in the mix, but Tunsil will not visit any of those schools on official visits due to his familiarity with the programs. Ill visit USC, Oklahoma, Alabama, LSU and Ole Miss, Tunsil said. I already know everything there is to know about Florida and Florida State. My top five changes every day, but the main things Im looking at are the playbooks and the relationships. I want to play in a pro scheme and not in the spread. Still, recruiting takes a backseat to next season for Tunsil. Im waiting until signing day, Tunsil said. My main goal is to win state. Everything I do is just to get better. The way last season ended, getting hurt against Bartram Trail, was horrible. I wish I hadnt got hurt. But this year, I feel like we can win the whole thing. Tunsil gave special thanks to two coaches that have helped with his development into one of the nations most sought after recruits. Having Coach Allen come in has meant a lot, he said. Hes helped us the most with discipline. Hes not all talk. Coach (Doug) Peeler has been with me since ninth grade and really helped me. Tunsil admits he probably wont play basketball his senior year due to the risk of injury with a football scholarship on the line, but thats not something that his basketball coach is worried about either. We dont really talk basketball unless its during the season, Jefferson said. Its a choice he has to make and hed be a welcome addition, but I support his decision and wish him well. And its probably the right decision for Tunsil according to his football coach as well. Right now, hes as good as any guy that I played with at Florida State, Allen said. His biggest success will come from football.
By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comThe Lake City Public Works stormwater crew bounced back in no time after the deluge from Tropical Storm Beryl. Director of Public Works Thomas Henry says the key to preparedness is to keep his team consistently working on maintenance throughout the city. Franklin Street, one of the main roads to the hospital, has been halfway completed with the eastern section of the road repaved, sidewalks added and a new stormwater system installed. As required by the Suwannee River Water Management District, Public Works will install a continuous deflective separation unit, a device engineered to separate trash and sediment from stormwater gushing off of streets before the water is ejected out into a nearby water source. The CDS unit, which is currently waiting to be installed next to Lake DeSoto, functions by swirling 55 gallons of water inside a fiberglass drum. Trash is collected inside a stainless steel basket. A sediment separator is also included in the system. 1CBIZ FRONTON BUSINESSJerry Osteryoung(850) 644-3372 firstname.lastname@example.org Lake City Reporter1CBIZ FRONT FSU Finance Professor Dr. Jerry Osteryoung is Executive Director of the Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship at Florida Business.Week of June 3 June 9, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section CColumbia, Inc.Your marketplace source for Lake City and Columbia County1CColumbia Inc. join us for aday in paradise!Enjoy food music & games in honor of our survivors .June 8th 11am-2pmcccnf.com Nurse On Call Home Healthcare BUSINESS Sunday, June 3, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section C Story ideas?

By LAURIE KELLMANAssociated PressWASHINGTON What religious freedom bill? Republicans stung by the culture wars that dominated the nations political discourse this year are standing down on social issues, acutely aware that the presidential and con gressional elections five months off are expected to turn on a thin margin of cash-strapped independent voters neither party can afford to alienate. How about House Speaker John Boehners vow to reverse President Barack Obamas birth control policy? Theres no sign of any such legislation. The Ohio Republican reminds people daily that he is focused on jobs now. Obamas revelation that he supports gay marriage? Told ya so, said social conserva tives at the core of the GOP before they turned back to assailing the presidents stew ardship of the economy. And what happened to the GOPs efforts to curb abor tion? House Republican lead ers made it go away by offer ing a vote on a bill to ban gen der-based abortions Thursday under special rules that guaranteed it would fail. There is a growing sense among Republicans that, with Mitt Romney all but crowned as their presidential nominee, social issues generally are los ers for the party at a time when the GOP is trying to appeal to swing voters. Through a searing primary season that erupted repeatedly over gen der politics to the general elec tion now under way, polls have consistently shown that voters remain most concerned about jobs and the economy. Im not trying to dismiss the social issues ... they are important to a lot of people, said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, one of Romneys liai sons to Congress. But we must stay focused on the jobs and the economy. That does more to affect peoples social (policy) than anything else. Polls and the partys recent experience suggest the strat egy also is smart politics. For one thing, Fridays economic news showed unemployment rose slightly in May, with the jobless rate ticking up from 8.1 percent to 8.2 percent. The GOP took a drubbing over the winter after pick ing a fight over a provision in Obamas health care law that required employers to provide workers access to contraception, even when religious views prohibit its use. In a coordinated effort, Republicans on both sides of the Capitol denounced the policy as a violation of the Constitutions guarantee of religious liberty and vowed to reverse Obamas rule. Democrats fired back that Republicans were trying to limit access to contraception as part of a Republican war against women. Polls showed that the Democrats won that early round, key to their mission to retain Obamas wide lead among women, who account for a majority of voters in presidential election years. Republicans were slow to respond, and Romney never engaged in the debate over contraception, convinced then as now that all Americans view the election as referendum on Obamas stewardship of the recovering economy. Recent voter research offers support for the move away from the sort of culture war that conservative Patrick Buchanan called for from the podium of the Republican National Convention in 1992. Many Republicans viewed that approach as one that alien ated moder ates. Two decades later, as the candi dates battle over that same voting bloc, polling suggests that social issues are a moti vating factor for female voters but not in the Republicans favor. An AP-GfK poll conducted earlier this month showed Obama holding a 53 percent to 32 percent advantage over Romney as the candidate who would do a better job handling social issues such as abortion and same-sex marriage. And while a Washington Post/ABC News poll released Wednesday showed Republican women warming to Romney, other surveys suggest he still faces a broad gap on issues of concern to women. A Kaiser Family Foundation poll also released Wednesday found that 4 in 10 women have taken some political action as a result of things theyve heard, read or seen recently about womens reproductive health choices and services. Among liberal women, 51 percent said they had taken action, com pared with 41 percent among conservative women. Social issues change minds, notably among independent women, the survey found. Thirteen percent of women who identified themselves as independents said they had changed their mind about who to vote for as a result of news on reproductive issues, compared with 9 percent of Republican women and 7 per cent of Democratic women. Social issues have great emotional resonance in politi cal campaigns and are thus risky subjects for emphasis in close elections. Thats why House Republican leaders last month struck a deal with Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., to bring up the gender-based anti-abortion bill for a vote on its own, rather than attach it to the controversial Violence Against Women Act. On Thursday, Franks bill got a vote under a rule that required the support of two-thirds of the House. It failed by 30 votes. A leadership aide said there were no plans to bring it up for passage by a simple majority.

Your earnings on a traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA) and a 401(k) grow on a tax-deferred basis, so your money can accumulate faster than it would if placed in an investment on which you paid taxes every year. Plus, since you typically make 401(k) contributions with pretax dollars, the more you contribute, the lower your taxable income. And your traditional IRA contributions may be tax-deductible, depending on your income. If you meet income guidelines, you can contribute to a Roth IRA, which provides tax-free earnings, provided you meet certain conditions. 6KRXOG,SXWDZD\PRQH\IRUP\NLGV FROOHJHHGXFDWLRQ" Its not easy to fund your retirement accounts plus save money for your childrens college education.

K_\Dfkc\p=ffcKXb\ Take a Bite of AppleApple (Nasdaq: AAPL) has been blowing investors away quarter after quarter. In its last quarter, revenue was up 59 percent over year-ago levels and earnings nearly doubled. Over the past decade, the stock has grown by almost 50 percent annu-ally, on average, and recently traded around $560 per share. Amazingly, Apple still looks cheap to many, with some Wall Street analysts setting target prices above $900. In addition, the cash-laden company has initiated a dividend. It begins in late 2012 and yields about 1.9 percent at recent rates. It may seem like Apple can do no wrong. When its third-generation iPad debuted, 3 million were sold in its first weekend. The company sold 35 million iPhones and nearly 12 million iPads in its last quarter. Things can change, though. Apple may be making most of the profits in mobile, but Android is the open-source platform dominating the global smartphone market. Apple is the undisputed market leader in tablets, but Android threatens there, too. Meanwhile, Windows 8 is expected to be very tablet-friendly when it rolls out later this year. Still, its likely that Apple will grow in value. iPhones and iPads are still early in their global growth cycles, and new products, such as iTV, are being developed.

LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS SUNDAY, JUNE 3, 2012 3CSTORM CREW: Bouncing back after Beryl Continued From Page 1CBoth the trash and the sedi ment are vacuumed out of the device around two times every year. The whole system costs around $40,000. Four other CDS units are already installed within the city. The installation of the CDS unit is just the beginning of anticipated improvements to Wilson Park and the down town area, Henry said. We got big plans for this park, Henry said. Henry dreams of con structing a stainless steel gazebo that sits over the waters of Lake DeSoto. Then you have the water fountain in the back ground for concerts, wed dings, some pretty pictures and the park is so big we can do a whole lot of stuff, he said. Henry believes with the addition of some bath rooms and parking, the space could easily become the focal point of Lake City. We have a beautiful area, Henry said. It needs a little more TLC, but it could be awe some. Henry hopes that the Battle of Olustee Festival could be hosted at the park one day instead of on Marion Avenue. Theres a lot of history here, Henry said. I think its a nice dream, I think it would help the community, espe cially if you have events here because it allows everything else to be open. Its easier to close this street than it is to close a state road. Henrys three-man storm water crew has been spending their time working on small projects around the city, clear ing ditches and restructuring systems for water flow. Henry approaches storm water management with a creative edge, using recycled materials such as broken up pieces of cement to prevent erosion in low-lying areas. He said this technique is also practiced by the Department of Transportation and Publics Works of other cities. If you buy rocks its very, very expensive, Henry said. That way you are recycling it so the cost aint there no more and youre doing a job and its working. Henry said Public Works has been receiving less calls because of the increased emphasis on maintenance that the department has been able to pursue. Its been getting better because we are able to do stuff like this. A lot of the calls are going down, Henry said. Theres a lady off of Montgomery Street, she wants to see me personally and give me a hug. While visiting a job site with Henry where a tree was being cut down and a ditch cleared of debris, an 87-year-old neighbor approached Henrys truck. He said he had lived in a neigh boring house for 27 years. He seemed pleased. You people are profession al, he said. Just look at that, beautiful, beautiful. With his staff currently lim ited, Henry said his crew could accomplish much more with the addition of a few more people. He said the city has discussed the possibil ity instituting a storm water utility fee. Most cities that I go to for the storm water conferences will usually start out at about three dollars per month per residence, Henry said. All that fee money goes back into stormwater proj ects. To help improve the proj ects, help improve the flooding issues. So all that money ends up going back into helping the stormwater problems through out the community and storm water is not cheap. Henry said the city is still in the process of discussing this option. In the meantime, Henry pleaded for citizens to keep their trash out of the street. If we could just get our citizens to quit putting their yard debris in the curb line, Henry said. Dont put it in the curb or in the street because it ends up being a safety issue because people have to drive around it. Director of Public Works Thomas Henry approaches stormwater management with a creative edge, using recycled materials such as broken up pieces of cement to prevent erosion in low-lying areas.By ANDREW TAYLORAssociated PressWASHINGTON The Republicancontrolled House approved legisla tion Thursday to boost health care spending for veterans and provide more money to compensate record numbers of Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans claiming service-related dis abilities as they return home. The 407-12 vote reflected the tra ditional bipartisan support for vet erans in Congress and efforts by Republicans to exempt veterans pro grams from cuts felt by other domes tic programs. Roughly half of the $148 billion measure is for veterans pensions and disability payments over which law makers have little practical control. That includes a 20 percent, $10.5 bil lion increase for such payments. The Associated Press reported ear lier this week that 45 percent of the 1.6 million veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are now seeking compensation for injuries they say are service-related. About 1.2 million vet erans are expected to file for disability claims next year, on top of a backlog of almost 1 million applicants. The measure also boosts spending for Veterans Administration medical services in 2014 by $2.2 billion, a 5 percent increase that came even as the VA revealed earlier this year that it had overestimated medical care costs by $3 billion for this year and $2 bil lion for next. VA medical programs are budgeted more than a year in advance to insu late them from the ups and downs of the budget process. Pro-labor Republicans joined with Democrats to win 218-198 passage of an amendment by Rep. Michael Grimm, R-N.Y., to strip a provision that would have blocked the Pentagon from requiring contractors to sign project labor agreements to secure federal contracts. Such agreements require contractors to negotiate with union officials, recognize union wages and generally abide by collective-bar gaining agreements. The veterans measure is perhaps the most popular of the 12 annual spending bills that Congress must pass. It had been expected to pass eas ily despite a White House veto threat that was issued over moves by GOP leaders to break faith with last sum mers budget deal by cutting overall funding for agency operating budgets by $19 billion, almost 2 percent. The veto promise didnt find fault with the funding levels in the veter ans measure itself. Instead, it said the GOP moves on spending would force deep cuts to domestic programs like education, research and health care in subsequent legislation. Disability claims from Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans are run ning much higher than from veterans of prior conflicts. An estimated 21 percent of veterans filed claims after the first Gulf War in the early 1990s, government officials say. Whats more, these new veterans are claiming a greater number of ail ments than veterans of prior conflicts like the Vietnam War and World War II. Many factors are driving the dra matic increase in claims the weak economy, more troops surviving wounds and more awareness of prob lems such as concussions and post-traumatic stress disorder. Disability payments range from $127 a month for a 10 percent disabil ity to $2,769 for a full one. The measure also funds $10.6 bil lion in military construction projects. By MARCIA DUNNAssociated PressCAPE CANAVERAL Triumphant from start to finish, the SpaceX Dragon capsule parachuted into the Pacific on Thursday to conclude the first private delivery to the International Space Station and inaugu-rate NASAs new approach to exploration. Welcome home, baby, said SpaceXs elated chief, Elon Musk. The old-fash ioned splashdown was like seeing your kid come home, he said. He said he was a bit surprised to hit such a grand slam. You can see so many ways that it could fail and it works and youre like, Wow, OK, it didnt fail, Musk said, laughing, from his companys headquar ters in Hawthorne, Calif. I think anyone whos been involved in the design of a really complicated machine can sympathize with what Im saying. The goal for SpaceX will be to repeat the success on future flights, he told reporters. The unmanned supply ship scored a bulls-eye with its arrival, splashing down into the ocean about 500 miles off Mexicos Baja California peninsula. A fleet of recovery ships quickly moved in to pull the capsule aboard a barge for towing to Los Angeles. It was the first time since the shuttles stopped flying last summer that NASA got back a big load from the space station, in this case more than half a ton of experiments and equip-ment. Thursdays dramatic arrival of the worlds first commercial cargo carrier capped a nine-day test flight that was virtually flawless, beginning with the May 22 launch aboard the SpaceX companys Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral and continuing through the space station docking three days later and the departure a scant six hours before hit-ting the water. The returning bellshaped Dragon resembled NASAs Mercury, Gemini and Apollo spacecraft of the 1960s and 1970s as its three red-and-white striped parachutes opened. Yet it represents the future for American space travel now that the shuttles are gone. This successful splashdown and the many other achievements of this mis-sion herald a new era in U.S. commercial space flight, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said in a statement. Alan Lindenmoyer, manager of NASAs commercial crew and cargo program, was emotional as he turned to Musk and assured him that NASA was now his customer and that resup ply services were about to unfold on a regular basis. You have turned those hopes into a reality, Lindenmoyer said. Noted Musk: It really shows that commercial spaceflight can be successful. I mean, this mission worked first time right out the gate. Musk, the billionaire behind PayPal and Tesla Motors, aims to launch the next supply mission in September under a steady contract with NASA, and insists astro nauts can be riding Dragons to and from the space station in as little as three or four years. The next version of the Dragon, for crews, will land on terra firma with heli copter precision from pro pulsive thrusters, he noted. Initial testing is planned for later this year. President Barack Obama is leading this charge to commercial spaceflight. He wants routine orbital flights turned over to private busi ness so the space agency can work on getting astronauts to asteroids and Mars. Toward that effort, NASA has pro vided hundreds of millions of dollars in seed money to vying companies. NASA astronauts are now forced to hitch rides on Russian rockets from Kazakhstan, an expensive and embarrassing outsourcing, especially after a half-century of manned launch-es from U.S. soil. It will be up to SpaceX or another U.S. enterprise to pick up the reins. Several compa nies are jockeying for first place. It will take a few days to transport the fresh-from-orbit Dragon by barge to the Port of Los Angeles. From there, it will be trucked to the SpaceX rocket factory in McGregor, Texas, for unload-ing and inspec tion. Reports from the scene are that the spacecraft looks really good, Musk said, with no major changes needed for future Dragons, just minor tweaks. SpaceX or more properly Space Exploration Technologies Corp. plans to hustle off a few returning items while still at sea to demonstrate to NASA a fast 48-hour turnaround. That capability would be needed for future missions bearing vital experiments. The capsule returned nearly 1,400 pounds of old space station equipment and some science samples, a little more than it took up. Because it was a test flight, NASA did not want to load it with anything valuable. It carried up mostly food. This was only the second time a Dragon has returned from orbit. In December 2010, SpaceX conducted a solo-flying shakedown cruise. Like the Dragon before it, this capsule will likely become a traveling exhibit. Russias Soyuz capsules for carrying crews also parachute down but on land, deep inside Kazakhstan. All of the government-provid ed cargo vessels of Russia, Europe and Japan are filled with station garbage and burn up on descent. NASA lost the capability of getting things back when its shuttles were retired last July. Rival Orbital Sciences Corp. hopes to have its first unmanned test flight off by years end, launching from Wallops Island in Virginia. It, too, has a NASA contract for cargo runs. The grand prize, though, will involve getting American astronauts flying again from U.S. soil and, in doing so, restore national prestige. Aboard the space sta tion is a small U.S. flag that soared on the first shuttle mission in 1981 and returned to orbit with the final shuttle crew. It will go to the first private rocket maker to arrive with a U.S.-launched crew. After that, promises Lindenmoyer, there will be more opportunities for part-nering NASA and industry perhaps at the moon, Mars or beyond. The Commercial Spaceflight Federation con-siders the Dragons success a critical stepping stone. Its a seminal moment for the U.S. as a nation, and indeed for the world, said its chair-man, Eric Anderson.SpaceX Dragon returns to Earth, ends historic trip ASSOCIATED PRESSThe Dragon spacecraft on a boat in the Pacific Ocean is s hown in this photo provided by SpaceX shows on Thursda y.

By JOSEPH WHITEAssociated PressOXON HILL, Md. The story of this spelling bee champion begins in the car, on the daily commute to kindergarten with father at the wheel. Hed ask me words that he saw on the signs, on billboards, and hed ask me to spell them, Snigdha Nandipati said. I remember my favorite word to spell was design because it had the silent g. It didnt take long for Krishnarao Nandipati to realize his daughter had a special talent. He began entering her in bees in the third grade. Soon she was winning them, and Thursday night the 14-year-old girl from San Diego captured the biggest prize of them all: the Scripps National Spelling Bee. A coin collector and Sherlock Holmes fan, Snigdha aced the word guetapens, a French-derived word that means an ambush or a trap, to outlast eight other finalists and claim the trophy along with more than $40,000 in cash and prizes. I knew it. Id seen it before, Snigdha, a semifinalist last year, said of the winning word. I just wanted LIFE Sunday, June 3, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D Recently two VA friends, Sharon Ruyle from Alabama and Grace Pike from Michigan came for a visit. On the third day of their trip, we had done Lake City and needed a place to go for the day. We decided to take a drive over to beautiful Fernandina Beach (Amelia Island) where we had a chance to smell the ocean breeze and stare at the Atlantic ocean. Surprisingly, on the way from Baldwin to Callahan we discovered that clearing of the right-of-way was underway getting ready to make this road four-lane or thats what we think. How great this would be to be able to exit at Baldwin and go to I-95 on a widened road. Anyway, it was lunch time when we arrived in Fernandina so that meant a visit to a favorite spot, Bretts Waterway Caf. Bretts sits at the end of South Front Street and it has been at this location over twenty years. On this early spring day, we decided to sit outside and enjoy the sunny, breezy weather with a great view of the water and boats bobbing in the wake. Shrimp boats were docked out in front assuring us that we would be able to enjoy fresh from the water seafood. The menu has lots of seafood offerings. After our visitors enjoyed their Bloody Marys we dug into the delicious crab dip gratin ($9), filled with fresh crab meat, assorted cheeses, scallions, pimentos and just the right amount of seasoning, and served with crispy toasted baguettes. The Bloody Marys were as delicious as they looked; served in a stemmed glass with green olives, celery and a huge shrimp hanging off the lip. We tried shrimp and grits ($14), lobster, crab & shrimp enchilada ($15) and the quiche of the day. The mouth-watering shrimp and grits featured red eye gravy filled with tasso ham, tomatoes, green onions and gorgeous shrimp served over creamy grits. The enchilada was filled with lobster/ crab/shrimp and seasoned rice, topped off with an elegant Meyer lemon sauce and a dollop of sour cream. The crab quiche ended up being our favorite. The serving was huge and it was as almost as fluffy as a souffl-delicious! The seasoned bleu cheese potato salad was tasty but the favorite side was the homemade chunky apple sauce. A bread basket included homemade carrot-raisin muffins that added just the right touch. A neighboring table ordered another special of the day, pan fried trout which looked wonderful and may be our choice Taste Buddies head to the beach Story ideas?

Deepak Pachagiri Suresh graduated from CHS in 2004 and went on to join his grandfathers, father, mother and brother in the medical field. Suresh graduated from Florida State University with a medical degree May 19. He will begin his residency this summer at Loma Linda University Medical Center in California, said his father, Pachagiri Suresh, a radiologist at the Lake City VA Medical Center. Sureshs oldest son, Vinod Pachagiri Suresh, is completing his residency at St. LukesRoosevelt Hospital in New York. He graduated from CHS in 2001 as salutatorian. My father was a doctor and my grandmother wanted me to be a doctor, the elder Suresh said. Although he considered becoming an engineer, Suresh said his uncle, also a doctor, convinced him otherwise. My grandmother thought being a doctor was the highest thing, he said. She said, Be a doctor, nothing else. Suresh said his sons learned about the medical field in family conversations. I think they were just exposed to medicine, its all they knew, he said. His sons had a genuine interest in becoming a doctor, they were never forced, he said. They were interested. To become a doctor, you have to be interested, Suresh said. Suresh said he came to the U.S. in 1976. The family moved from Fort Lauderdale to Lake City in 1993 for Sureshs job at the VA. I like the veterans, he said. Patient care is very important for veterans because they fought for their country and came home with injuries, Suresh said. I feel for them. Sureshs wife, Ambujakfhi Suresh, said she was touched to see their sons graduate with medical degrees. When I came to this country, I never thought my sons would become doctors, said Suresh, who is also a doctor, but does not practice. I was their mentor and coach, both my husband and I, she said. Both sons worked under local doctors, did research and volunteered at the VA hospital, she said. Im proud of my sons and thankful to their teachers and professors. Both sons went through the Columbia County School system from elementary school on, she said. They each had influential teachers, she said, especially former teacher James Montgomery. Although it meant many years in school, the elder Suresh said his sons worked hard to achieve their goals. Students who work hard can achieve whatever goal they want, he said.

friends before you pull out the chainsaw. First, trees can save us money if located in the right place. A deciduous tree (one that loses its leaves for the winter) can reduce energy bills if it is growing and shading the south/southwest side of your home. During the summer, the foliage can block the suns rays and reduce air conditioning costs by up to 30 percent, according to the USDA Forest Service. The leaves fall and allow the suns rays to provide warmth to your home in the winter, also reducing energy costs. Trees provide us with comfort when we are outdoors on hot days by literally cooling the surrounding air. Through a process called evapotranspiration, the leaves lose gallons of water through tiny holes, or stomata. This lost moisture cools the air by taking heat with it as it evaporates up into the atmosphere. The cooler temperatures around the trees make life better for birds and other wildlife that choose to live there, also. Pollution control is another way that trees help in stabilizing our environment, even aiding in our ability to sleep at night. Trees can absorb sound waves from heavy traffic and reduce noise pollution. They can block city streetlights or neighbors security lights from shining through the bedroom window, thus reducing light pollution. The trees ability to reduce air pollution works in a couple different ways. Dirt particles in the air are stopped by leaves and branches, and then washed to the ground by rain. Plants also remove many gaseous pollutants by absorbing them through leaf stomata. Carbon dioxide, one of the gases linked to global warming, is absorbed during photosynthesis, and oxygen is released for us to breathe. The carbon is safely stored away in the trees trunk and root tissues. Trees also help to conserve water and reduce soil erosion. Leaves fall, decompose, and add to the organic matter in the soil. Organic matter retains soil moisture, improves soil structure, and releases nutrients into our sandy soil. Your trees also help to keep precious rain water on your property by slowing down runoff and giving rain a chance to soak into your soil. Before you decide to sharpen the chain saw blades, consider the benefits of trees. You may save yourself some fuel costs, sleep, comfort, health, and water by keeping that tree right there.

HARPAZAssociated PressNEW YORK Teaching kids to become bullyproof is all the rage. Books, videos and websites promise to show parents how to protect their kids from being bullied; school districts are buying curricula with names like Bully-Proofing Your School, a well-regarded program used in thousands of classrooms. Even martial arts programs are getting into the act: Bullyproofing the world, one child at a time, is the motto for a jujitsu program called Gracie Bullyproof. But can you really make a child invulnerable to getting picked on? And even if you could, should the burden really be on potential victims to learn these skills, rather than on punishing or reforming the bullies? Parents and educators say when bullyproofing programs are done right, kids can be taught the social and emotional skills they need to avoid becoming victims. But bullyproofing is not just about getting bullies to move on to a different target. Its also about creating a culture of kindness, beginning in preschool, and encouraging kids to develop strong friendships that can prevent the social isolation sometimes caused by extreme bullying. WHOS GOT YOUR BACK? Bullies sniff out kids who lack connections or who are isolated because of depression, mental health issues, disabilities or differences in size and shape, said Malcolm Smith, a family education and policy specialist at the University of New Hampshire who has been researching peer victimization for more than 30 years. So if youre worried about your child being a victim, the best thing a parent can do from a very young age, starting in preschool, is ask, Whos got your back? When youre on the bus, when youre in the hall, whos got your back? If they cant name someone, you should help them establish connections to their peers. Smith, who is working on a program called Courage to Care thats being tested in three rural New Hampshire schools, cited an example of a new boy who was being pushed and shoved by other boys in the hallway. We didnt know how to empower him, Smith said, until the staff noticed that hed become friends with a girl. This girl is sweet but really assertive. What are seventh grade boys more afraid of than anything? Girls! So having her walk down the hall with this boy was the immediate solution to ending the bullying. Psychologist Joel Haber, a consultant on the recent documentary Bully, says kids should also have backup friends outside school through sports, hobbies, summer camp or religious groups. Thats hugely important, especially as kids move from elementary to middle school. EMOTIONAL SKILLS Haber says most kids can learn skills to make themselves less likely to have the big reactions that feed bullies. Lets say youre one of those kids who, when I make fun of your clothes, you get really angry and dramatic. If I taught you in a role-play situation as a parent or a therapist to react differently, even if you felt upset inside, you would get a totally different reaction from the bully. And if you saw that kids wouldnt tease you, your confidence would go up, said Haber One way parents can help is to normalize conversations about school social life so that kids are comfortable talking about it. Dont just ask How was school today? Ask, Whod you have lunch with, whod you sit with, whod you play with, what happens on the bus, do you ever notice kids getting teased or picked on or excluded? advises Haber, who offers other bullyproofing tips and resources at RespectU. com and is co-authored of a new book called The Resilience Formula. BODY LANGUAGE Bullies feed on the body language of fear. Its a physical reaction how the victim responds, how they hold their head and shoulders, the tone of voice, said Jim Bisenius, a therapist who has taught his BullyProofing Youth program in more than 400 schools in Ohio and elsewhere. Teaching a kid to appear confident physically can sometimes be easier to teach than verbal skills, Bisenius said. If a kid whos never been mean in his life tries to fake it, or tries to outdo a bully with a verbal comeback, the bully sees right through that. Lisa Suhay, a mom in Norfolk, Va., said her 8-yearold son Quin was helped by Gracie Bullyproof, a martial arts program taught in 55 locations that combines verbal strategies with defensive jujitsu moves. Quin had been bullied so much on the playground that Suhay stopped taking him there. But she decided to give the park one last try after he completed the Gracie training. No sooner did Quin begin playing on a pirate ship than a bigger boy knocked him down and ordered him to leave. But this time, as his mom watched in amazement, Quin grabbed the other kid around the waist and landed on him like a big mattress, all while saying, That was an incredibly bad idea you just had. But Im not afraid of you. The other boy swung again, and Quin took him down again, then asked, Now do you want to play nice? They played pirates for the rest of the afternoon. Its about respect and self-confidence, said Suhay. Youre not teaching them to beat up the bully. But theyre not cowering. They make eye contact. They talk to the bully. So much of the time they avert the situation because the bully doesnt expect them to say, Im not scared of you. HOW NOT TO RAISE A BULLY The classic bully profile is a child who was neglected, abused, or raised in an authoritarian home where punishment was the norm. But lack of discipline is just as bad: Children who have no boundaries, who feel entitled to whatever they want, can also become bullies. Smith worries that misguided efforts to boost kids self-esteem have produced a sense of entitlement that weve never seen before. He worries that were raising the meanest generation and says schools and parents must create a culture where meanness is not tolerated. Kindness, empathy, caring and giving you can teach those things. Haber says parents and schools can start in preschool years by discouraging hitting, pushing and teasing: Ask, how would you feel if someone did that to you? Children can even be taught that being kind is fun. Addict your child to kindness, said Smith. There are releases in the brain that feed endorphins that are very positive when you act with kindness. Encourage your kids to go over to a kid whos alone and bring them in. Some kids who bully need help learning to read social cues. If I tease you and you cry, most kids will realize they crossed a line and will apologize, but if Im a bully, I want more power, more status, and I see theres an opportunity to go after you, said Haber. If you see your child bullying a child, the child not only has to apologize but do something nice, practice atonement. Being a bully is less exciting when you have other skills. And beware the example you set when you treat a waitress or clerk rudely. If youre the kind of person who is constantly criticizing, youre unconsciously role-modeling behaviors that kids will test out, Haber said. PROSPECTS FOR SUCCESS Given what Smith calls a history of failure in reducing bullying, its easy to be cynical about whether bullyproofing can work. At one time, bullies were seen as having low self-esteem; now theyre seen as narcissists who think theyre superior. Conflict resolution was big Can you really teach a kid to become bullyproof? ASSOCIATED PRESSQuin Suhay, now 8, tackles Bill Odom, owner of Norfolk Karate Academy in Norfolk, Va., as part of a bullyproofing class that combines jujitsu defensive moves only, no punching or kicking with verbal strategies in this June 2010 photo. Other types of bullyproofing programs, including guides for parents and regular classroom curricula, seek to make kids less vulnerable to being picked on by teaching them how to deal with teasing and how to make friends. next visit. Obviously we didnt even look at the dessert menu. Are you kidding? We did look and two of our favorites are key lime chiffon pie and Georgia Peach Bread Pudding. Sounded good but we left um behind. The service was outstanding and we never had to ask for a thing. The servers were knowledgeable, friendly and made us feel like they were really glad that we came that day. After browsing in the shops in downtown Fernandina, we headed for a nice long visit with the Atlantic Ocean.. just beautiful and as usual, blew those cobwebs out of our heads. Our visitors enjoyed their day and were very impressed with this North Florida beach which so often is not familiar to out of state visitors. Maybe thats a good thing. So, next time you want a change of scenery remember, a day in Fernandina is only an hour and a half away. Bretts Waterway Caf located at 1 South Front Street. Telephone number is 904 261-2660.

to ask everything I could before I started spelling. There was no jumping for joy, at least not right away. The announcer didnt proclaim Snigdha the champion, so she stood awkwardly near the microphone for a few sec onds before confetti started to fly. One person who knew for certain she had won was her 10-year-old brother, Sujan, who ran full-speed onto the stage and enveloped his sister in a hug. In that respect, it was a familiar bee sight a Indian-American family celebrating and soaking up the ovation in the 85th edition of the annual contest held in the Washington area. Americans of Indian descent have won the bee five times in a row and in 10 of the last 14 years, a phenomenon that began in 1999 with champion Nupur Lala, who was later featured in the documentary Spellbound. Snigdha, like many winners before her, cited Lala as an inspiration. And, like several other recent IndianAmerican champions, she wants to be a doctor either a psychiatrist or a neurosurgeon. She says this is harder than being a neurosurgeon maybe, her mother, Madhavi, said. Snigdhas grandparents traveled from Hyderabad in southeastern India for the competition, but it was the little brother who stole the show as he played with the confetti and then helped his sister hoist the huge trophy. Might he be a future champion? Hes not that interested, the father said. Hes more into tennis. Second place went to Stuti Mishra of West Melbourne, Fla., who misspelled schwarmerei which means excessive, unbri dled enthusiasm. While many spellers pretend to write words with their fingers, 14-year-old Stuti had an unusual routine she mimed typing them on a keyboard. The week began with 278 spellers, including the youngest in the history of the competition 6-yearold Lori Anne Madison of Lake Ridge, Va. The field was cut to 50 semifinalists after a computer test and two preliminary rounds, and Lori Anne was two misspelled words away from a semifinal berth. The tiny, blue-eyed prodigy said shed be back next year. Gifton Wright of Spanish Town, Jamaica, was hop ing to be the first winner from outside the United States since 1998, but he couldnt correctly spell ericeticolous. Twelveyear-old Arvind Mahankali of New York aspired to be the first non-teen to win since 2000, but he couldnt spell schwannoma and finished third for the second straight year. I got eliminated both times by German words, said Arvind, who has one year of eligibility remain ing. I know what I have to study. Associated Press writer Ben Nuckols contributed to this report.

They say what we want to hear. But theyll go back and do it again when nobodys watching, said Bisenius. But experts are hopeful about this new generation of bullyproofing programs, which teach social and emotional skills while promoting a caring school culture. Susan Swearer Napolitano, a Nebraska-based psychologist and co-director of the Bullying Research Network, who recommends a half-dozen bullyproofing programs on her website TargetBully.com, says if these programs are implemented with fidelity and the messages are consistently communicated across a school community, then bullying prevention and intervention programs can help change the culture of bullying behaviors. However, ultimately its about people treating each other with kindness and respect that will stop bullying. SPELLING BEE: California girl captures National titleContinued From Page 1D By JOHN ROGERSAssociated PressLOS ANGELES Ah, the little plastic grocery bag, we hardly got to know you. Although it seems as if the single-use grocery bag, as its formally known, has been around forever, it wasnt until 1977 that it was introduced to U.S. supermarkets, a move that prompted perhaps the most asked question of the following decade: Paper or plastic? As the years went by and plastic won, people began to find myriad other makeshift uses for the little bags with the briefcase-like handles. You could line small trash cans with them, use one to scoop up dog doo and another to carry wet towels home from the beach. You could even use them to take pictures in the rain and not destroy your camera. The discarded bags, though, had a nasty habit of washing up on beaches by the thousands, clogging storm drains and getting tangled in all sorts of stuff. That raised the ire of environmentalists, who have been on a ban-thebag quest for years. Now, with the city of Los Angeles taking the first step toward joining nearly four dozen other California municipalities in outlawing them, the humble little polyethylene bag may be headed for the trash heap of history. San Francisco already bans the bag. So do San Jose, Long Beach, Berkeley and Malibu. But LA, with nearly 4 million residents, goes through an estimated 2.7 billion plastic grocery bags a year, according to city officials, and environmentalists believe a ban here will have a huge impact and could even influence the rest of the country to follow suit. This is a gateway for sustainability, said Leslie Tamminen of the Clean Seas Coalition, which pushed for the LA ban. This is meant to change consumer behavior and expand consumer consciousness. So, using those handy little bags with the tie-shut handles for cleaning up after your dog or cat? Forget about it. In Santa Monica, many people say they already have. Ive had to buy a lot more of these, laughed Dana Artress, pulling a little green pet-store doggie bag from her pocket as she walked her longhaired Chihuahua through Pacific Palisades Park. Santa Monica banned the use of plastic grocery bags more than a year ago, as did Los Angeles County for its unincorporated areas, which is where Artress lives. And although she misses her free bags, she figures its a small sacrifice to make for the environment. Plastic has done a lot of good things, she said. But I dont think we absolutely need it just to pick up our dog poop. Indeed, every dog walker, jogger or bicyclist who stopped to talk about plastic bags on a recent sunny afternoon in the park that overlooks the Pacific Ocean agreed wholeheartedly with her. Oh sure, most of them admitted, theyve forgotten their reusable bag. Theyve had to fumble with paper ones, which cost them a dime apiece. Some even precariously juggled their purchases free hand on the way back to the car. But the tradeoff, they say, was worth it. We used to see just so much plastic bags and trash on the beach, said David Schwartz of Santa Monica as he sat on a blanket overlooking the ocean with his wife, Jennifer, and their baby. Schwartzs best use for his grocery bags was collecting the discarded food that winds up in your kitchen sink. The bags have also been known to be handy for carrying baby bottles and for stashing dirty diapers until you find a trash can. But Schwartz says hes found freezer bags serve the same purpose and dont seem to blow away in the wind, get tangled in trees or power lines or stuck in storm drains like grocery bags do. The biggest thing now is remembering to bring those reusable cloth bags to the grocery store that he and his wife have collected since the plastic ban began. Im still not used to it, I always forget, Jennifer Schwartz acknowledged. Under the proposal the City Council approved last week, Los Angeles will conduct an environmental impact study to see just what effect banning plastic grocery bags might have. Then it will look at adopting a ban similar to Santa Monicas, which would allow people who forget to bring their reusable bags to the store to buy paper ones for 10 cents apiece. No time frame for all that was given, prompting industry officials who oppose the ban to note its still a long way from happening, and that they will argue that it would be a job killer for California while not significantly cleaning the environment. Mark Daniels, chairman of the industry group the American Progressive Bag Alliance, says the plastic bag manufacturing and recycling business employs more than 30,000 U.S. workers, including about 2,000 in California. Meanwhile, bans have begun to be adopted elsewhere. Every county in Hawaii has now banned plastic grocery bags, although all the bans wont fully take effect across the state until 2015. The bags have also been banned in Portland, Ore, and in the Outer Banks region of North Carolina, although there is an effort under way in that state to repeal the ban. In LA, the proposed ban wouldnt completely eliminate plastic bags. People who feel they just cant survive without having a plastic grocery bag to entertain a cat with or slide over a broken parking meter could still obtain one by going to a takeout restaurant. Unless, that is, they live in Malibu. The bags have been banned from restaurants there too. LA vote could spell end for bag of a thousand uses ASSOCIATED PRESSA man walks along the street with plastic bags in Los Angeles on May 24. Now that the city of Los Angeles has taken the first step toward banning plastic bags, it appears the little utilitarian bags themselves may be headed for the trash heap of history. There was no jumping for joy, at least not right away. The announcer didnt proclaim Snigdha the champion, so she stood awkwardly near the microphone for a few seconds before confetti started to fly. Associated PressLONDON People around the world will be able to discover whether they have a royal connection at least below stairs with publication of 250 years of records listing staff who served the British monarchy. Employee records from royal residences including Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle are being put online Friday to coincide with this weekends celebrations of Queen Elizabeth IIs Diamond Jubilee. The lists range from the 17th-century reign of King Charles II until 1924. They include more than 50,000 employees, from household servants to the esoterically titled Moletaker, Chocolate Maker to the Queen and Keeper of the Lions in the Tower. The records previously could only be viewed by appointment at Windsor Castle. They have been digitized by the Royal Archives and genealogy site www.findmypast.co.uk.Staff records for UK royal household go online

DEAR ABBY: I am a 30year-old woman in a long-distance relationship with an amazing man for more than a year. We visit each other every few months and chat online every night. Were in love and feel we are ready to move on to the next step -living together. We live in different countries. He is much more established in his country and very close to his family. I am in a temporary job, and while I care for my family very much, there really isnt anything to tie me here. It makes more sense for me to move there. (Its a five-hour plane ride from here.) My family, especially my parents, say I am abandon-ing them, and ask how could I live with myself if something ever happened? Abby, my parents are in their early 50s and in excellent health. My two sisters live near them. I fail to see why I am getting so much grief, when I just want to move on to the next stage of my life. Any advice? -PULLED IN TWO DIRECTIONS DEAR PULLED IN TWO: Your parents are anxious because even at 30, you are still their child, and they are experiencing separation anxiety. However, at your age, you should be mature enough to decide your future. I do have a word of advice I hope youll con-sider: Before you commit to leaving the United States to join your boyfriend, please do some research on the rights of women in his country. Here in the U.S. we enjoy many privileges that are not shared by women outside our borders. They concern marriage, divorce, division of property and child custody. It is important that if you choose to marry him, you do it with your eyes wide open. That way there will be no surprises. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My adult son, Jake, is in prison for the fourth time for an indis-cretion in his early 20s. He hasnt repeated the offense, but he doesnt comply with the rules of his probation and ends up back in prison. I fully supported my son when the incident happened because I felt he got a bad break, but I feel he should take responsibility for his actions. Jakes repeated offenses for noncompliance are part of a rebellious and stubborn attitude and an unwilling-ness to accept the lifelong consequences of his initial offense. To compound the issue, he has three daugh-ters. He keeps popping in and out of their lives, which is very disruptive. If it werent for them, Id probably write him off (I have done that emotionally anyway), but I keep trying to maintain some kind of connection between them in case he comes around someday. Is this foolish thinking on my part? By the way, my son never married the girls mother and has never paid child support, but she has still been willing to let him be part of their lives. -WRITING HIM OFF IN ILLINOIS DEAR WRITING HIM OFF: If youre asking me for permission to take yourself out of the equation, you have it. It is not your job to maintain Jakes relationship with his daughters -thats HIS responsibility. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Resurrect some old goals you have yet to reach. Reviewing your past will help you put a better plan together for the future. Dont be sidetracked by what you are told. Go to the source and get your infor-mation firsthand. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Relationship problems can easily develop if you arent sensitive to the needs of your partner. Whether it is a friendship or a working relationship, you have to acknowledge existing prob-lems in order to fix them. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your thirst for knowl-edge will lead to interesting conversations. Dont be sur-prised if someone disagrees with you. Its OK to have a different view. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Get things in order at home. The more you do to make your surroundings comfortable and user-friend-ly, the better you will feel. An emotional encounter with someone special will spark your interest and give you a great idea. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You will be on top of your game and ready to take on the world. Before you pro-ceed, make sure you arent stepping on anyones toes. Proper protocol can make the difference between get-ting what you want or not. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Dont take anything or anyone too seriously. You have to be able to laugh at situations instead of let-ting them drive you crazy. Relax and take a timeout. Do something that will calm your nerves and make you feel good about you. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Size up whats being said; if it sounds too good to be true, take a pass. Focus on meeting new people or enjoying the company of someone you love. Travel will have its ups and downs, but it will also educate you for future journeys. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Make your home a place that inspires you to explore new avenues, ideas and plans for the future. Avoid anyone who wants you to spend money or invest in something risky. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Sum up your per-sonal situation and prepare to make changes that suit your needs. Altering your lifestyle or sharing your space or time with someone you love will lead to a long-term commitment. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Let your mind wander and you will come up with unique solutions to any problems you face. A conservative financial approach to something you want to pursue will win support from family and friends. Charity begins at home. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Dont push your luck when dealing with someone in a position of authority. Focus on your home and family, and making ends meet. Love is in the stars, and revealing your feelings will lead to positive lifestyle changes. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You may feel you have to oppose someone you care about. Before you make your move, consider the consequences and look for alternatives that will not damage your friendship. Think outside the box and be willing to compromise. +++++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Entourage, in slang6 Hide pokers10 Patriot Caesar Rodney onhorseback 14 Person running the show BBB0DMHVW\V 6HFUHW6HUYLFH 19 The Great Lakes 20 Parallel, e.g.,WVWKH+DUG .QRFN/LIHmusical 23 Some dabblers24 Snake predators named for theircalls 27 Scissor-tailed flycatcher withwildflowers 'EDFNVHJ29 P.R. problem30 Beach lotion abbr.2QHVJHWWLQJDZD\%DWWHU\W\SH37 Zales rival5HGXFHWRDV\PERO+RVLHU\VKDGH,URQVLQ3DULV7KH*RRGE\H.LVV DXWKRU0DVVLPR 0XFKTXRWHGOLQH from Edgar in.LQJ/HDU 5R\DOWLWOHWKDW PHDQVJUHDWKRXVH 49 Common sweetener *RE\/DFNLQJUK\PHRU reason 9HUVDWLOHGHOLYHU\ vehicles 55 Outlets in a FKHPLVWU\ODE ,VODQGSURYLQFHRI the Roman Empire 58 Nonauthoritarian59 Covered wagon next to Chimney Rock 63 Concerning64 United in purpose66 Rice stalks, a diamond and amallard 67 Old comic book FRZER\ 69 Eager reporter71 Venture to postulate72 Nassau residents/RVH
