COMING WEDNESDAY Local News Roundup. 87 72 T-Storm Chance WEATHER, 2A Lake City ReporterTUESDAY, JUNE 12, 2012 | YOUR COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | 75 LAKECITYREPORTER COM Vol. 138, No 99 By HANNAH O. BROWN email@example.com Suwannee River Water Management Districts order for water regulation, effective tomor row, will limit outdoor water usage to once a week for citizens residing within district limits. With water resources dwin dling, alternative options for lawn care are a more sustainable real ity worth consid ering. John Dinges, SRWMDs Director of Water Supply and Resource Management, said the organization encourages Floridafriendly landscaping -the instal lation of native plants in order to conserve water, reduce nutrient inputs and provide natural veg etation for native species. Dinges said one half of the public water supply in Florida is devoted to landscape irrigation. We are really emphasizing the water saving nature of Floridafriendly landscaping, he said. Nichelle Demorest, Horticulture Agent at the University of Florida IFAS Extension office, said native groundcover is being considered by more people. It is a trend for those who are exploring alternatives, Demorest said. I think people are becoming more and more aware of Floridafriendly landscaping. Rainfall levels in Columbia County aver aged 9.32 inches last month, a sig nificant increase from the all-time May average of 3.21 inches. Last week rainfall was recorded at 3.49 inches in Alligator Lake, 2.91 near High Springs, 3.42 at Ichetucknee Springs and 2.69 at Oleno State Park. Still, groundwater levels in 92 percent of Suwannee River Districts upper Floridan aqui fer monitor wells were recorded in the bottom 10 percent of all recorded measurements. According to a monthly report from SRWMD, these levels are considered extremely low. The report states that levels were acquired after the deluge of Tropical Storm Beryl when available. The effect of this recent down pour on lawns and landscaping has been a decrease in needed irrigation. During the rainy season, its not going to take as much, Demorest said. Sometimes you dont even need to irrigate in the summer. Demorest said that over-water Water limits take effect tomorrow Restrictions for outdoor usage in place for district. JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Lake City resident James Montgomery gestures Monday as he overlooks Alligator Lake from his dock behind his home. While the drought has dried out many of the areas waterways, this portion -the deepest part of the lake -typically retains its waters. The recent rains have also been kind to his lawn, which Montgomery said he never waters. It will get real low, but never lose all of its water. Ive gotten almost 10 inches of rain on the last couple of weeks. All the water that the lake gets is rainwater. By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org Local authorities hope a new law slated to go into effect later this summer will reduce the instances of copper theft in the area. Lake City Police Department officials describe copper theft around town as a major crime trend in the community. During the six-month period from Jan. 1 June 5, the Lake City Police Department received reports of 18 cases of property crimes involving precious metals. House Bill 885 was signed by Gov. Rick Scott earlier this year and takes effect July 1. In a prepared statement, Steve Shaw, Lake City Police Department public infor mation officer, said as the price paid for precious metals such as gold, silver and copper continues to rise, the department has seen a increase in property crimes involving them. He said items such as air conditioners can be stripped for their copper and noted that electrical wiring from construction sites is often stripped or burnt clean for the copper and sold to a secondhand dealer/ recycler. The bill amends provisions found in Florida Statutes Chapter 538, parts 1 and 2, which deal with secondhand precious metals dealers and secondary metals recy clers. The bill requires that individuals pur chasing, consigning or trading second hand goods at a flea market be regulated by secondhand dealer laws. The bill also spells out specific require ments for secondary metal recyclers. The bill: n Requires that secondary metal recy clers maintain and transmit daily an elec tronic record of all the previous days purchase transactions to the appropriate law enforcement official; n Revises the timeframe that secondary Columbia County Assistant Fire Chief Jeff Crawford (left) and home owner Will Smith watch as fire fighters work on a fire that was accidentally started inside a machine shop after Smith was working with metal Monday afternoon. Columbia County fire fighters, Lifeguard Ambulance Service and the Columbia County Sheriffs Office responded to the structure fire located at 596 NE Frogs Glen. No one was hurt. Structure fire JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter By TONY BRITT email@example.com A West Palm Beach man, whose license had allegedly expired more than a decade ago, was arrested by local law enforce ment officers Sunday morning after he sped away from a traffic stop, crashed into a house and attempted to flee on foot. Elbert Dion Pringle, 42, 4201 Greenwood Ave., West Palm Beach, was charged with aggra vated fleeing and eluding (proper ty damage), driving while license suspended/revoked (habitual offender), reckless driving, leav ing the scene of an accident with property damage, resist ing an officer without violence and license expired (12 years) in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Center on $22,000 bond. According to Lake City Police Department reports, officer Mike Lee saw a vehicle run a traffic sig nal at the inter section of U.S. Highway 90 and State Road 247. Lee followed the vehicle and attempted to ini tiate a traffic stop at the next intersection, but when he went to speak to the driver, later identified as Pringle, Pringle sped away from the scene. Lee attempted to follow Pringles vehicle and issued a Be On the Look Out alert to other authorities. Lee reported he thought Pringles vehicle struck another as Pringle attempted to flee, but when he went to the area where he thought the collision occurred and was about to leave, he was flagged down by pedestrians in the area telling him Pringles vehi cle did not turn onto Grandview Avenue but had driven through a yard and ran into a house. Witnesses reportedly told Lee that Pringle fled into the woods south of the house. When Pringles vehicle crashed into the home, it reportedly caved in a wall and damaged both the exterior and interior of the house, causing an estimated $25,000 worth of damage. No one in the home was injured, reports said. Authorities established a perim Pringle Authorities hope new law stems tide of copper theft COPPER continued on 3A RUNNER continued on 3A Without a license for 12 years, man hits house with car WATER continued on 6A By LAURA HAMPSON firstname.lastname@example.org With water restrictions going into effect Wednesday, the group Florida Leaders Organized for Water is asking the St. Johns Water Management District to do the same. The board voted Monday night to write a letter asking the St. Johns district to also put a water shortage order into effect. Residents in the St. Johns district are allowed to water lawns and land scapes twice per week, while those in the Suwannee River Water Management District will be allowed only once per week starting June 13. We need to stand up and do that, said Mary Lou Hildreth, Keystone Heights mayor, who made the motion. The water shortage order applies to all legal users of water, including well-water, agricultural and commercial users, said Charlie Houder, Suwannee River district acting executive director. Each of the districts monitor their condi tions and make decisions independently, he said. We thought it was time to pull the trig ger. St. Johns just isnt there yet, Houder said. Ann Shortelle, director of the Department of Environmental Protections Office of Water Policy, said she did con tact the St. Johns district late last week and asked them to reconsider their water shortage position. She said the district was looking at their data, but not ready to make a decision. However, in the short term the district is looking into transferring authority over counties split between districts, such as Alachua County, to the Suwannee district, she said. The aquifer is a shared resource. That is why we have a memorandum of agree ment. That is why we have a partner ship. If youre conditions are the same as Suwannees then we need to sit down and understand what a rationale would be for not doing the same sort of water shortage order, she said. Shortelle is scheduled to be appointed Tuesday as the Suwannee districts execu tive director. FLOW chairman and Columbia County commissioner Ron Williams said he knows most residents of Columbia County do not trust St. Johns River or Suwannee River water management districts, yet he is asked to implement the water shortage order. FLOW to St. Johns: You must conserve water too FLOW continued on 6A The bottom line of this chart shows ground water levels, which were at historically-low levels in March. 1

Psalm 46:10 NIV WEST PALM BEACH A woman was severely burned Monday after being doused in gasoline and lit on fire outside a 7-Eleven store in South Florida in a dispute with the father of her child, police said. The 34-year-old woman was waiting in her silver Mercedes at a 7-Eleven shortly before 3 a.m., Boynton Beach Police spokeswoman Stephanie Slater said, where she was to meet her ex and pick up her 4-year-old son. Roosevelt Mondesir, 52, arrived in his white Jaguar without the boy, of whom they share cus tody, and began throwing gasoline on her car and body, according to a police affidavit. She tried to run away, but police said the man ignited her and then chased her with a knife. She tore off her shirt and ran into the store, holding the doors closed as a worker called police. Police said Mondesir fled the scene. Officers searched by foot, with a police dog, and by helicopter before finding Mondesir sev eral hours later in bushes nearby the 7-Eleven. He was charged with attempt ed first-degree murder and was being treated for burns at Bethesda Memorial Hospital in Boynton Beach before being transferred to jail. It was not known if he had yet obtained an attor ney. The victim was not iden tified, but she is expected to survive. She was being treated at Delray Medical Center. Police havent said what led to the alleged attack, but it was caught on surveillance video they planned to release later Monday. Publix reopening 3 months later DELAND A central Florida supermarket is planning to reopen almost three months after a small plane crashed into its roof. Publix supermarket officials say the reno vated store in DeLand will reopen on June 28. Three customers and two people inside the plane were injured April 2 when the experimental craft crashed into the store less than two miles from the DeLand Municipal Airport. One man died of injuries suffered in the crash. Tolls increase along Turnpike MIAMI Get ready to pay a little more if you use Floridas Turnpike or the Sawgrass Expressway. Tolls are set to rise at 6 a.m. on Sunday, June 24. Across South Florida, the increase will be at least 25 cents even with a SunPass. Cash drivers will be $1.25 instead of $1 and SunPass users will see tolls increase from 75 cents to $1. Along Alligator Alley, the toll will increase from $2.50 to $3 in cash and from $2 to $2.75 with a SunPass. The Miami Herald reports the increase stems from law passed five years ago that lets the Florida Department of Transportation to link tolls it collects to the consumer price index. Teacher, sex offender arrested WINTER HAVEN Polk County Sheriffs officials say 36 men have been arrested during a 10-day undercover inves tigation called Operation Cyber Child. Sheriff Grady Judd plans an 11 a.m. briefing Monday to discuss the operation that concluded Sunday. Officials say the men were charged with travel ing to meet juveniles and other crimes. Those arrest ed include a fifth-grade public school teacher and a registered sex offender. A sheriffs office press release says detectives posed as children in ficti tious ads and profiles they posted on various websites. Numerous men responded to the ads and then chatted with juveniles online, texted them and even talked on the phone with the detectives who were posing as children. Mississippi man drowns PENSACOLA BEACH Officials say a 23year-old Mississippi man drowned and more than a dozen other swimmers were ordered out of rough surf off Pensacola Beach. Red flags were flying on the beach Sunday, warn ing people not to enter the water. Pensacola and parts of the Florida Panhandle received heavy rain that caused widespread flood ing over the weekend. The Associated Press Woman doused in gas, set on fire at 7-Eleven NEW YORK Aerosmith has flown with turbulence for most of their 40-year career, but as the groups summer tour begins this week, things in the band seem to be abso lutely blissful. Weve already gone through all our problems, Steven Tyler said in a recent interview, laughing with Joe Perry. Aerosmith has definitely had its share of feuds both public and private, most recently in 2009, when Perry lashed out at Tyler after the American Idol judge fell off a stage dur ing the bands concert tour and injured himself, forc ing the band off the road. Perry questioned Tylers dedication to Aerosmith and even floated the idea of a new lead singer, but they made publicly made up. Joe and I were fight ing for a while, thats no secret, Tyler said. But whatever demons or reali ties were going on in the band, it happens with bands that stay together for 40 years and have the success that we have. He added that any fric tion never affected their ability to put on a good show: Were up there to play to the audience. Its never about us. Perry agreed. Its only as good as those two hours onstage, the guitarist said of the bands chemistry. The rest of it, I have no idea how it works. With Aerosmith, we put one foot in front of the other and hope for the best. Aerosmith (which includes guitarist Brad Whitford, bassist Tom Hamilton and drummer Joey Kramer) starts the Global Warming tour with Cheap Trick on Saturday in Minneapolis. Then later this summer, theyll release their first studio album of all-new material since Just Push Play in 2001. The upcoming Music From Another Dimension marks the first time in a decade that Perry and Tyler wrote music togeth er. Tyler says despite the time it took to get back to basics, once they did, it was like a fine wine. Its the same bottle man. We just corked it. Everything that was cook ing inside and fermenting to that just right year just hap pened to be now. It was the perfect time, Tyler said. Arquette has bar mitzvah in Israel JERUSALEM David Arquette got more than he bargained for during his first trip to Israel.

Officer Garrett Register reported that a man match ing Pringles description was walking near the retention pond of the Ironwood sub division. Register exited his car and ordered Pringle to stop, but Pringle ran away from the officer. Register chased Pringle into the swampy area around the retention pond and caught Pringle after Pringle was unable to jump a fence heading back into the neighborhood. According to police reports Pringle had numer ous drivers license suspen sions and revocations, as well as a lengthy criminal his tory of fleeing and resisting police. Reports said Pringle is a habitual traffic offender with license revocations for habitual offender status, as well as fleeing and eluding. He also has three indefinite suspensions for failure to appear and seven suspen sions for failure to pay traffic fines. Pringle also has previ ous convictions for driving while license suspended or revoked and his license was also expired for 12 years. RUNNER: No license Continued From Page 1A COPPER: Theft Continued From Page 1A By GARY FINEOUT Associated Press TALLAHASSEE The administration of Florida Gov. Rick Scott is headed to a legal showdown with two different federal agen cies over a contentious voter purge. Florida filed a lawsuit in a federal court in Washington D.C., demanding that the state be given the right to check the names of its regis tered voters against an immi gration database maintained by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The lawsuit came the same day that the U.S. Department of Justice announced its plan to ask a federal court to block the state from pushing ahead with removing potential nonU.S. citizens from the voter rolls. Authorities contend that the states effort violates federal voting laws. Please immediately cease this unlawful conduct, wrote Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez to Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner. But Scott himself went on national television to defend the purge and the need to sue the federal government. I have a job to do to defend the right of legiti mate voters, Scott told Neil Cavuto of Fox News. We want to have fair honest elec tions in our state and so we have been put in the position we have to sue the federal government to get this infor mation. This latest action follows a lawsuit filed last week against the purge by a Hispanic civic organization and two naturalized citizens that was backed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida. The litigation is unlikely to have much a practical effect since nearly every county supervisor in Florida had already sus pended efforts to remove any of the potential nonU.S. citizens identified by the state. But the legal skirmish is already becoming a flash point between Republicans and Democrats in this crucial swing state. Scott himself blasted the federal government over the voter purge during a tea party event held over the week end. It was Scott who last year urged state elections offi cials to start looking for non-U.S. citizens on the voter rolls. An initial com parison of drivers license records with voter registra tion records turned up as many as 182,000 registered voters who may not be U.S. citizens. But state officials did not release that list and instead sought access to a federal immigration database to verify the matches. That request so far has been turned down by Homeland Security. Earlier this year, state officials sent local election officials a much smaller list of more than 2,600 voters and asked them to check the names. Voters who did not respond to super visors could ultimately be removed from the rolls. Supervisors, however, have questioned the accu racy of the list since hun dreds on it have turned out to be citizens. State records show 86 non-citizens have been removed from the voter rolls since April 11, and that more than half of them had voted in previous elections. But some of the names removed in recent weeks were discovered by super visors independently and did not come from the list distributed by the state. Floridas lawsuit contends that federal law requires Homeland Security to grant the state access to an immi gration database which does not track native U.S. citizens but only those peo ple who visit or immigrate to the country. Homeland Security officials said they could not comment on the lawsuit. But Justice officials said it takes more than a name or birthdate to prove a match in the federal immi gration database and that Florida has already con ceded it doesnt have the right data. Perez wrote that the significant problems you are encountering...are of your own creation. Perez added said that while federal authorities do not want non-U.S. citi zens to vote states cannot have unfettered authority to remove voters from the rolls within 90 days of a federal election.

OUR OPINION W hen individu-als attempt to solve a problem and end up creating unforeseen troubles, its called the law of unintended consequences. When govern-ment does it, its called the law of the land. In its zeal for regulation, the federal levia-than has invented a market for something called renew-able-fuel credits and, not sur-prisingly, its filled with fraud. Businesses are getting swin-dled and Uncle Sams unsym-pathetic response is heads I win, tails you lose. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 mandated that the Environmental Protection Agency implement a Renewable Fuel Standard forcing fuel refiners to dilute their petroleum products with vegetable oil, corn, algae and animal fat so companies that label themselves green would reap a financial windfall. Refiners who cant make those substances on their own are allowed to buy renewable-fuel credits to meet their federal quota. Each credit carries a 38-digit renewable identifica-tion number (RIN) as proof of purchase. The credits can be traded. As this is an entirely artificial market that serves no purpose other than to make politicians and their political donors happy, its rife with fraud. Since November, the EPA has claimed 140 million invalid RINs have been sold. The agency alleges 48 mil-lion bogus credits came from Absolute Fuels of Texas, net-ting about $62 million. Another 32 million were purportedly sold by Clean Green Fuel LLC in Maryland for $9 million, and 60 million were marketed by Green Diesel of Texas, worth $84 million. House Republicans expect the scam to hit at least 300 million fake credits. Unfortunately, the production of and trade in fraudulent or invalid RINs has developed into a large and growing prob-lem, wrote House Energy and Commerce Committee chair-man Fred Upton, Michigan Republican, and three other committee members in a May 24 letter to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson. And EPAs efforts to address the problem so far appear ineffective, and in some respects have harmed the renewable-fuels market-place. Rather than taking responsibility for authenticating the RIN market, the EPA is putting refin-ers on the hook for unwittingly buying fake RINs. In March, the agency announced it would fine firms 10 cents for each invalid credit they use and 20 cents for each credit missing from their quotas. One credit trading com-pany, OceanConnect, filed suit in federal court in April, charg-ing the EPAs buyer beware policy is undermining the biofu-els industry. Thats an industry that should be undermined if its unable to offer consumers an affordable product that they want. Instead, Washington insiders who view Big Oil as the root of evil have decided the nation must transition to energy products that arent anywhere near viable. Its the essence of crony capital-ism when lawmakers dictate that one product corn fuel the winner at the expense of another affordable petro-leum. Ultimately, its the taxpayer and the environment that end up paying the price for this folly as the nations productive resources are diverted into the most wasteful endeavor of all: satisfying bureaucrats. Car Talk has taken listeners on a joy ride LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Hats off to Commissioner Ron Williams on his stance against the Suwannee River Water Management District water rationing idea. SRWMD should put up or shutup and stop kiss-ing up to the St. Johns River Water Management District and the JEA (who has all the money in the world). If JEA wants more water, then they should put up a dis-tillation/desalination plant to take the water from the sea rather than create more sink holes by taking water from the aquifer! Common sense Huh? Of course the great JEA would probably not take money out of their pockets and save money for the taxpayers in their dis-trict, even at the risk of deplet-ing our water in the aquifer because the water in the aquifer is FREE. Thats my view on the subject. Why should SJRWMD be trying to dictate to SRWMD what we in Columbia County do with our water? Probably because money talks! Most of us are pretty conservative in our water usage anyway. So once again, thanks Mr. Williams for standing up for us. Too bad that not all commissioners are for and of the people. Manuel EnosLake CityThanks from Wellborn On behalf of the Wellborn Community Association, we would like to thank the Lake City Reporter and its fine staff for the excellent coverage of the 19th Wellborn Blueberry Festival. We also thank our WCA volunteers who gave endless hours of preparation resulting in the festivals success. We had over 30 sponsors who supported our endeavor, many of whom attend-ed and assisted us in our labors. We had over 100 vendors set up at this years festival. But, all being said, where would we be without the thou-sands of people who attended from all over Florida and several other states. Everyone that I encountered seemed very excited with the activities, craft vendors and food vendors. I know that they liked blueber-ries because all of the blueberry vendors sold out, as did the WCA Country Store with our blueberry pies, cobblers, jams, jellies, syrup, and muffins. We start work on the festival slowly in early January. The pace builds as time passes. By mid-May our volunteers are devoting most of their waking hours toward the start and finish. At some point you wonder if its all worthwhile. I can answer that it is. Yes, when you get in the middle of your goal amongst all the people, see-ing that theyre having a good time, smiling even though they may have other problems, then you know its worthwhile.

BY E-MAIL: email@example.com O n its face it sounds any-thing but fair: The St. Johns River Water Management District hands JEA a 20-year deal to draw 155 million gallons of water a day from the Floridan aquifer, and we pay for it with strict new rules govern-ing water use here. Rules harsher, by the way, than those in St. Johns. Our county commission refused to help implement the rules here in response. Of course, they take effect tomorrow regardless. We share our commissioners frustration. Even a Suwannee water district official admitted there was some force behind their rea-soning. Still, its not that simple.The issue is bigger than a single consumptive use permit, and the JEA deal alone isnt to blame for the long-term troubles we face with water. As for the weaker restrictions in St. Johns, we dont imagine anyone so foolish as to take our commissioners actions for an endorsement to waste more water. In fact, their actions may have the opposite effect. The ordinance SRWMD wanted passed had little in the way of teeth. First and second offenses resulted in warnings, with fines in $25 increments to follow. Under state law, which now con-trols, violators could face jail and up to a $500 fine. Were told water management has no plans to put anyone in jail for overwater-ing their lawn. Still, the threat alone of a hefty fine will surely cause many to sit up and take notice. As well they should.Politics aside, were all in this together. And theres plenty more to come. Fairs fair for whatits worth Q The Washington Times OPINION Tuesday, June 12, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A ANOTHER VIEW H ere's bad news for fans of cars, radio and car radios: Tom and Ray Magliozzi are going to park "Car Talk" for good this September. The show will live on, after a fashion, as the producers will continue to cobble together "best-of" material from their archive of more than 1,200 shows. The brothers' many fans want to say, "Say it ain't so." But the Magliozzis put in 35 years of doing the broadcast, 25 of them on National Public Radio, pro-viding a boisterous and raucous antidote to NPR's traditional solemnity. They've earned their retirement. Tom is 74, and his brother, Ray, 63, said that even one hour of work a week was getting to be too much for Tom. Fraternal kidding was a big part of their show. Although both had MIT degrees, they arrived at their show-business careers through the Cambridge, Mass., counter-culture. Tom opened a garage based on the idea of renting tools and space to people who wanted to fix their own cars. Ray joined him and, realizing that the two of them were going to end up doing most of the work anyway, they converted the operation into a conventional repair shop, the Good News Garage. "Car Talk" was a call-in show for gearheads, full of joshing, bad puns and good advice. The brothers could be stern with their automotive brethren if they suspected that a listener, especially a woman, was being ripped off. Thanks to rebroadcasts, podcasts and satellite radio, "Car Talk" will keep cruising the air-waves, and the brothers, who go by "Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers," will continue to do their column. Drive safely, guys, and thanks. Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & STATE TUESDAY JUNE 12, 2012 ing does more harm than good, causing fer tilizers to wash away as well as proliferate fungi and disease. Its kind of a vicious cycle, she said. Demorest said it is important to become educated on the needs of the grass plant ed. You have to rethink your watering. I think a lot of people havent done that yet. According to Demorest, some grasses require a substantial amount of water such as St. Augustine and bahia grass. Centipede lawns require less water resources but often do not satisfy the image that many have for the aesthetic effect of their lawn, Demorest said. One-fourth of homeowners have some body else take care of their lawn, Demorest said. Many of those people probably have irrigation pre-set. Maybe they dont even know how to set it or dont pay attention, she said. Just planting alternative groundcover doesnt immediately lessen water usage. Irrigation landscaping must be planned for it to effectively save resources. Demorest said plants that use less water should be planted together and not inter mixed with plants that are heavy water consumers. People are placing them among plants that still need a lot of water, she said. Its about putting the right plants in the right place, Dinges said. Alternative options for groundcover pro vide a more sustainable solution to water resource management. Native species such as love grass, mimosa, cast iron plant and mondo grass require less water and are more resistant to pests than non-native species. They can handle floods and droughts, and we have both, Dinges said. Some alternatives have their own unique benefits. Perennial peanut, a non-native species that has been deemed Florida-friendly, sports lush green leaves and yellow blos soms throughout the summer and fall. It requires no fertilizer and holds up well to foot traffic. They are really nice, Demorest said. Demorest said that many native plants have an already built-in defense system. The cost of maintaining these plants will pay off in the long run, she said. Its going to be more expensive to install alternative plants to begin with. Over time though, it will be less expen sive, she said. Youre not going to have the continual upkeep. Demorest cautioned that every option requires some upkeep. The SRWMDs water shortage order includes a 60-day exemption following the planting of new lawns and landscapes. The order still asks for no irrigation of new lawns and landscapes between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. In terms of enforcement, Dinges said, Anybody with a water use permit, we can handle the enforcement. For residential and commercial users, SRWMD is asking units of local govern ment to assist. Were asking them to make it like a code violation, he said. Columbia County Commissioners did not respond to a request to approve an ordinance for a public hearing of the water shortage order by SRWMD last week. Commissioner Ron Williams said the lack of support of the ordinance was based on frustrations with a permit issued by St. Johns River Water Management District to JEA for 155 million gallons of water a day from the Florida aquifer for up to 20 years. Dinges said the reason for the shortage order is because SRWMD is trying to curb the demand for water. Managing enforcement is much more effective if local government helps, Dinges said. Don Brandes, Manager of Water Conservation Program in St. Johns, said St. Johns Water Management District has not implemented a water order in response to the drought. However, the district has operated under a permanent water regulation since 2006, allowing outdoor watering twice a week. Its what we believe to be respon sible use of water on a permanent basis, Brandes said. The SRWMDs regulations limit lawn and landscape watering to once a week. The order will persist through September. Our situation is not as serious as in the Suwannee district, Brandes said. Still, Brandes said the St. Johns district has been very dry, with ground and sur face levels still quite low even after recent rains. WATER: Limits Continued From Page 1A By GARY FINEOUT Associated Press TALLAHASSEE Nearly 6,600 emails gathered by a task force looking into Floridas self-defense laws have been filled with passionate responses to the Trayvon Martin shooting as well as caustic criti cisms of the Republican-controlled state government and of those who called for the arrest of George Zimmerman. Gov. Rick Scott set up the task force, which was set to hold its first public hearing today in Central Florida close to where neighborhood watch volunteer Zimmerman shot and killed the unarmed teenager in February. The 28-year-old has been both vilified and defended by people across the nation for his actions. Zimmerman said after the shooting and since that he acted in self-defense and police in Sanford did not arrest him. But after weeks of protests, he was charged with second-degree murder and is back in jail because a judge revoked his bond. The shooting set off an intense national debate about self-defense laws, race and other matters, which were reflected in many of the emails sent by people from California to New York and the nations heartland. Florida passed the stand your ground law seven years ago. It allows use of deadly force to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm, and it removed a persons duty to retreat in the face of such peril that was required in a previous self-defense law. The change was strongly backed by the National Rifle Association. Many of the emails call on Florida to either keep the law as it is or to repeal the stand your ground part. Those who oppose to the law called Florida a danger ous place to visit. Please repeal this terrible law that allows murderers to walk free, wrote Austin Doyle who lives in the Panhandle. Christians shouldnt be carrying guns everywhere they go. Micheal Rodney from Venice, Fla., blast ed Scott for creating the task force and said it was premature to even look at the states self-defense laws. We are a nation of laws, and the full extent of the law has not been applied in this case, and we do not know what laws, if any, have been broken, Rodney wrote in late April. ...For Governor Scott to have acted in the way he has been portrayed, without any rebuttal on his part, means that I have wasted my previous vote for his election. W.M. Smith from Monroe County mean while urged the task force to correct insane gun laws. My ancestors pioneered central Florida in 1830. They used guns to secure food, not for machismo. Thanks to the gun lobby, the opposite is true today, Smith wrote. I currently feel far safer in Central America than in my native state. Some of the emails complained about the racial overtones of Martins killing that they said had been pushed by the national media. The case has become a racial flash point because the Martin family and sup porters contend Zimmerman singled out the 17-year-old because he was black. Roy Callahan of Gainesville sent to the task force a copy of a letter he sent to State Sen. Chris Smith. He sharply criticized the Fort Lauderdale Democrat for complain ing that the current law is confusing. State gets divided opinions on self-defense laws After his bond was revoked, George Zimmerman, right, returns to the John E. Polk Correctional Facility in Sanford, Fla., Sunday, June 3, 2012. Zimmerman is charged with sec ond-degree murder in the shooting of Trayvon Martin. ASSOCIATED PRESS The Columbia County Commission did not adopt the water shortage model ordinance, which would have made short age order violations less severe, with verbal warnings and fees. Its a more friendly way to imple ment the water shortage order, Houder said. Without the ordinance, violat ing a shortage order is a sec ond degree misdemeanor under Florida law, Houder said. Houder said the district has heard from local gov ernments that it looks like the district is passing problems down to the local government. Thats really not the intention, he said, but rather to use tools the district has to help residents reduce their water use. Williams said some may say focusing on the St. Johns approv al of the Jacksonville Electric Authority permit, which allows the utility to withdraw 155 million gallons of water per day, is smallminded, but it is on the mind of a lot of residents. Williams said until we develop the true science and monitoring of the permits long-term effects to the aquifer, which is hope fully what FLOW will do, most residents will ask, Why should I conserve the water in Columbia County for in the future its sucked dry by somebody to the east of us? Thats selfish, but thats human nature and weve got to get beyond that by working together, he said. This is all Columbia County residents are saying, Give me the true data, dont hide nothing from me. Let both management districts get together and work on even grounds. We dont want to give if they dont want to give. Thats human nature, he said. Houder said he understands where Williams is coming from and applauds FLOWs efforts to get the science on the table. Hopefully we can work with you and hopefully we will be able to build back the trust of the people of Columbia County and other citizens throughout this region, he said. During the meeting, the FLOW board also approved a sub-com mittee to hire a staff person by next months meeting. The board approved an hourly wage between $15 and $20 for an employee that will make presentations, organize data and assemble agenda mate rials. Williams said FLOWs commit tees need to meet and develop action plans and budgets by the next meeting on July 9.

The division champions will advance to the Babe Ruth State Tournament in West Palm Beach. They will be joined by two at-large teams, which will be deter-mined today. A small flood Thursday night and rain delays during the weekend threatened to delay the tournament, but a marathon day of games on Sunday got the qualifier back on track. It rained Saturday and Sunday, State Commissioner John Lucas said. We finished up Sunday about 11. With all the rain, Tad (Cervantes) and David (Williams) and their crew spent a lot of time getting the fields ready. People were amazed. Ocala also has an annual state qualifier and Lake City drew the early start dates this year. School was not over until Friday for some of the players, so the tour-nament had to be played Saturday through Monday. Despite the weather, Lake City Columbia County Youth Baseball pulled it off. They always do an excellent job here, Lucas said. They did an excellent job of getting the fields ready to play and the umpiring is always good. People enjoy coming to this tournament in Lake City. The local all-star teams struggled in the tournament. Lake City and Columbia were 1-3 in their divisions and Fort White was 0-3. Columbia left with the best feeling on Monday, beating PVAA 8B, 8-1. Columbia opened with a four-run first inning, added three runs in the second and one in the third. Matthew Dumas and Hayden Gustavson singled in the first inning, then John Hendry and Jacob Haines followed with back-to-back triples. Haines scored on a double by Jake McCranie. In the second inning, Zane Starling, Evan Umstead and Dumas singled to load the bases. Gustavson brought in two runs with a single and Hendry singled to score Dumas. McCranie, Starling and Umstead singled for the run in the third inning. Columbia played good defense to hold PVAA 8B to one run. McCranie made a diving catch from right-center field in the second inning. Second baseman Gustavson made a diving stop on a ground ball in the sixth inning and threw to first for the out. Fort White had a heartbreaking, 9-8 loss to Marietta Bullsbay after building a 7-2 lead. Marietta scored seven runs in the bottom of the fifth inning and Fort White came up one run short of tying it in the sixth. Fort White jumped out with four runs in the first inning, all with two outs. Joseph Comesana reached first and scored as Kaleb Compton and Phillip Moore followed with singles. John Wells drove in two runs with a double and Caedrin Blancett added an RBIdouble to score Wells. Sandon Raulerson doubled to lead off the sec-ond inning and scored on a single by Samuel Moore. Blancett started the fourth inning with a triple, but was caught off the bag on a ground ball by Josh Kasper. Raulerson singled and Samuel Moore scored Kasper and Raulerson with a double. Blancett doubled and scored in the sixth inning. Lake City went up against the undefeated team in its division, CCPAL, and played even for three innings.

DEAR ABBY: My husband, who is 55, has been diagnosed with Picks disease, or frontotemporal dementia. His prognosis is from two to seven years -only God knows. We are handling this with better-than-average concern. It is his diabetes that everyone keeps going on about. Hes on medication and his dia-betes is under control. My problem is, I let my husband eat whatever he wants within reason. If were out to dinner and he wants ice cream, or asks me to buy him his favorite lemon cookies, I dont argue. When people tell me I shouldnt do that, my husband replies that he is already dying, so why shouldnt he enjoy his life now? He still enjoys baseball and taking our grand-daughter to the zoo. He is still mobile and, in fact, has recently lost 45 pounds. People dont understand his attitude, but he is right. He IS dying, and I am letting him enjoy his final years. Am I wrong for doing this? I want him to enjoy what he can now, as there will come a time when he cant. -LOVES HIM IN NEBRASKA DEAR LOVES HIM: Please accept my sympathy for your husbands diagno-sis. As someone who also believes in quality of life rather than quantity, I see nothing wrong in allowing him those pleasures he enjoys. For your husband, the countdown to zero has begun. You are both being rational and realistic. Clarify that fact for the naysayers or ignore them. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I am a woman who suffers from syncope. I become light-headed whenever I must have blood drawn or a nee-dle prick -it doesnt matter which. My physician and her nurse always accommo-date me by allowing me to lie down during these pro-cedures, and consequently I have never fainted. However, if I go elsewhere for a procedure, as I recently did to a free medi-cal screening, after telling the medical personnel about the syncope, the reactions I typically receive range from a look like I have two heads to comments like: Oh, this will be real quick; you wont feel a thing, Dont watch or Think of something else. Well, I did experience an episode of syncope during that last screening, and it was very embar-rassing. Why wont medi-cal personnel LISTEN to what a patient tells them? Who knows my body bet-ter than I do? -SYNCO-PEEVED IN THE SOUTH DEAR SYNCOPEEVED: Believe me, I empathize. However, free screenings can be as jam-packed as a casting call for American Idol. Overwhelmed medical personnel may not be able to accommodate someone who has special needs. Thats why its important when you hear comments such as those you men-tioned that you insist on being helped by someone who understands what the implications of syncope are. You may have to wait a bit longer, but it may pre-vent a blackout. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Should a mother call her son if he is a father to wish him a Happy Fathers Day? -ANDRIETTA IN NEW YORK DEAR ANDRIETTA: That would be a nice ges-ture. He qualifies. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may think you are being spontaneous, but reckless will be a more accurate description. Think twice before you do or say something you might regret. Slow down and focus on acquiring information that will help you make a better choice. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Ask questions and pick up information that can help you gain insight into your pursuits. Apply pressure in order to get what you want or to stay on schedule. Stick to your original plans or you will appear to be unstable. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Youngsters or people you find incompetent will try your patience. Keep your facts straight, espe-cially when dealing with work or authority figures. Keep your options open. Honesty and integrity will count, especially if you need a helping hand. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Ask direct questions and find out exactly whats going on. Refuse to bend under pressure. Focus on your goals instead of what someone else wants to accomplish. If you want a partnership to survive, strive for equality. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Make alterations that will change your life or your geographical location. Romance is on the rise and will be enhanced by ges-tures of friendliness and kindness when asked for help. Altering your lifestyle to suit your needs will pay off. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Dishonesty is apparent in business discussions. Watch what everyone is doing. Make decisions or professional moves based on facts and figures, not empty promises. Stress will lead to health issues. Take care of your physical and mental wellness. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Network, but ques-tion anyone telling you something that sounds too good to be true. You may want to pursue physi-cal improvements, but do your research. You only get what you pay for. Love is highlighted and on the rise. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Dont invest for the wrong reason. If you want to help someone, do so without expecting any returns. Focus on unusual topics, pastimes and people. What you pick up will help you make unique changes to your home and lifestyle. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Move forward cautiously when it comes to professional and per-sonal partnerships. Back away from anyone putting pressure or demands on you. Altering the way you interact with loved ones will enhance your relation-ships. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): The changes or choices someone makes may upset your world. Dont take responsibility for someone elses actions or fold under pressure because of an emotional attachment. Be true to you. Sit tight until a posi-tive move can be made. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Rely on experience to aid you in making the best choice now. Making a domestic move or reunit-ing with people you feel can contribute more to your life looks promising. Preparation will be key to your advancement. Love is enhanced. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Youll face opposition. Listen to whats being sug-gested before you launch a new idea or plan. Excess appears to be a problem. Whether its you or some-one else overspending, overdoing or overindulg-ing, you must proceed cau-tiously. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

By EDDIE PELLS Associated Press PARIS Rain or shine, clay or mud, Sunday or Monday, Rafael Nadal rules Roland Garros. The man they call Rafa won his record seventh French Open title Monday, returning a day after get ting rained out to put the finishing touches on a 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 victory over Novak Djokovic. He denied Djokovic in his own run at history the quest for the Novak Slam. The match ended on Djokovics double-fault, a fittingly awkward conclu sion to a final that had plen ty of stops and starts. Nadal broke the record he shared with Bjorn Borg, improved to 52-1 at the French Open and beat the man who had defeated him in the last three Grand Slam finals. I dont know if I am the best or not, Nadal said. I am not the right one to say that. The only thing is, I have probably one of the best results ever, probably in this kind of surface, and for me (that) is great. Djokovic was trying to become the first man since Rod Laver, 43 years ago, to win four straight major titles. He came up short just as Roger Federer twice did in seeking four in a row also halted by Nadal at Roland Garros in 2006-07. Nadal won his 11th Grand Slam title overall, tying him with Borg and Laver for fourth among the all-time leaders. 6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS TUESDAY, JUNE 12, 2012 Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 King of Clay ASSOCIATED PRESS Rafael Nadal of Spain holds the trophy after winning the French Open mens championship against Novak Djokovic of Serbia at Roland Garros stadium in Paris on Monday. By BRIAN MAHONEY Associated Press OKLAHOMA CITY LeBron James is quickly racking up MVP awards while Kevin Durant is collecting scoring titles at the same pace. Either could make a case as the best player in the NBA. Neither is interested in anything beyond team accomplishments. One of them is about to get the only crown he craves, their head-to-head duel the leading story line of the NBA finals that begin tonight when Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder host James and the Miami Heat. I think its going to be a great matchup, Miamis Dwyane Wade said Monday. I think its going to be two players thats going to be tough to guard each other, thats going to have to guard each other. Both insist the series is more than an individual matchup and the All-Star talent around them sup ports the claim. But the focus will be on James, the three-time MVP in his third shot at a championship, and Durant, the three-time scoring champion who is playing for his first at age 23. Its the first time the MVP and scoring champ have met in the finals since 1997, when Michael Jordans Bulls knocked off MVP Karl Malone and Utah. Everybody is going to make the most out of the matchup of me versus LeBron, but its the Thunder versus the Heat, Durant said. One guy versus another guy, its not going to be a 1-on-1 matchup to win the series, its going to be all about the team. They are friends and workout partners, play the same small forward posi tion and are blessed with unlimited basketball talent. After years of waiting on a James-Kobe Bryant finals matchup that never materi alized, the league gets one thats perhaps even better, if not quite as sexy, to wrap up a successful season after the lockout. Its great for the NBA, Miamis Shane Battier said. Theres so many young, great players in this league and established players and All-Stars. If youre a basket ball fan, youre missing out if youre not watching this series. Both have sworn off Twitter, at least for the time being, James posted his last message on April 27 and Durant on May 1. Kevin is locked in on what he needs to do to help the team win, Thunder All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook said. Its going to be a great series for both teams and hopefully we can come out with the win. James is back for a third crack at his first champi onship. His Cleveland Cavaliers were swept aside by San Antonio in 2007 just a couple of weeks before Durant was drafted by the then-Seattle SuperSonics with the No. 2 pick in the draft.
