TIP, Chamber partnerto promote message By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comThe Ichetucknee Partnership joined forces with the Lake City/Columbia County Chamber of Commerce Tuesday to further promote a message of water-resource protection and education. The Chamber will now serve as the marketing arm for nonprofit TIP and its mascot, Bellamy Beaver, said Chamber Executive Director Dennille Decker. “We felt like it was a good fit,” she said. “The Chamber is already out in the com-munity promoting what’s unique to our area. We have a large reach and the mar-keting expertise to make this partnership very successful.” Both the TIP board of directors and the Chamber board of directors gave unani-mous approval to the partnership. The two groups signed a contract during a ceremony at the Chamber office Tuesday afternoon. The Chamber plans to hire a marketing coordinator to assist with Chamber duties and to serve as the project coordinator for TIP marketing activities. Through the guidelines of the agreement, Bellamy Beaver and the TIP message will be more visible in elementary schools and at other community events in Columbia County, Decker said. “The Chamber is very excited about this partnership and honored to be selected as the marketing arm of the TIP organi-zation and Bellamy Beaver,” said Todd Wilson, Chamber president and publish-er of the Lake City Reporter. “We all have the responsibility to show awareness toward the challenges facing our rivers and groundwater and there’s no better organization to lead the marketing effort with TIP’s message than the Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber stands for strong business enhancement and smart growth in our region, but we can’t have any of this without clean water. We hope this is a message students, residents and business owners alike will embrace.” TIP’s board does not have the man-JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterMembers of the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Comm erce and The Ichetucknee Partnership signed a marketing services agreement at the Chamber office Tuesday.

TIP continued on 3A Four fatalities in 2012 is far below last year’s pace.By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comFour people have been killed in traffic accidents this year in Columbia County. For the families touched by those deaths, that number may not seem small. However, there were four times as many traffic fatalities by mid-2011. This time last year there were 16 traffic deaths, said Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Mark Boatright. Overall there were 31 deaths, he said.

RIGHT: Cassandra Kellum, of Tallahassee, the eldest daughter of murder victim Tommy Lee Kellum, speaks about the second-degree murder conviction of Brenda D. Watson. TRAFFIC continued on 3A District gradefalls to CFrom staff reportsAfter four years of B’s, the Columbia County School District’s grade has dropped to a C. More than half of districts statewide dropped a letter grade, according to the state Department of Education, which released district grades Friday. No district raised its grade this year. Columbia County earned a B from 2008 to 2011. The district was a C from 2004 to 2007. Drops were expected this year as students faced a new, harder Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test with a more difficult grading standard. Also for the first time scores for stu-dents with disabilities and English language learners counted toward the total school grade. VERDICT continued on 3A By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comBrenda D. Watson was convicted of second-degree murder by Circuit Judge David Fina Tuesday after-noon in the Columbia County Courthouse. Watson was facing firstdegree murder and two counts of grand theft in con-nection with the June 2009 shooting death of Tommy Lee Kellum, 76. Watson shot Kellum five times and left his body in their Washington Street home, before return-ing and rolling it in a rug. She then fled the area in his truck. Fina rendered the decision after deliberating for about an hour and 10 min-utes. Watson, who chose not testify in the case, requested a non jury trial. Watson was found not guilty of the two grand theft charges. The date for sentencing has not been scheduled. Watson, who was talkative and jovial during court recesses, rocked in her chair while listening to testimony from state and defense wit-nesses. She was represented by Blair Payne of the Third Circuit Public Defenders office. “You are never happy with any guilty verdict, but I can’t really say I’m displeased with this one,” Payne said. “I think Watson was OK with the verdict. She didn’t tell me that, but that’s kind of what I gathered from her demeanor.” Watson, who was 45 at the time of her arrest in 2009, was facing a first-degree murder charge, but Fina found her guilty of the lesser count of second-degree murder. “We didn’t get a firstdegree murder verdict and that was the key objective,” Payne said. “Obviously that’s the key objective not to get first-degree murder

SeaWorld whale ban appeal denied ORLANDO A federal panel will not reconsider a judges ruling to prohibit SeaWorld animal trainers from having unprotected contact with killer whales. Orlando-based SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment filed a petition last week for discretionary review with the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission concerning parts of Judge Ken S. Welschs decision this past spring. The commission rejected SeaWorlds peti tion. Voters not likely to be removed TALLAHASSEE Floridas election supervi sors are unlikely to remove any potentially ineligible voters before the Aug. 14 primary. The state this weekend got the OK to access a fed eral immigration database to check the citizenship status of voters. But the state association that rep resents Floridas county elections supervisors will urge its members to move slowly. Vicki Davis, the Martin County Supervisor of Elections and the asso ciation president, said on Tuesday that she was urging caution because it is unclear if the state can take all steps necessary to carry out a new agreement with the federal govern ment before voting starts early next month. The state asked coun ties to remove potentially ineligible voters earlier this year. 2 killed, 2 injured in head-on crash KISSIMMEE Authorities said two people were killed and two others were injured in central Florida when one vehicle went into an oncoming lane and crashed into another.

Associated Press Actress urges against human trafficking WASHINGTON A ctress and activist Jada Pinkett Smith urged Congress on Tuesday to step up the fight against human trafficking in the U.S. and abroad. The actress testified during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing that she plans to launch a campaign to raise awareness and spur action against human traf ficking and slavery. She said the old monster of slavery is still with us, almost 150 years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation that freed slaves in the U.S. Fighting slavery doesnt cost a lot of money. The costs of allowing it to exist in our nation and abroad are much higher, the actress said. It robs us of the thing we value most, our freedom. She said the issue was brought to her attention by her daughter Willow, 11, who sat nearby with actor Will Smith, Pinkett Smiths husband and Willows father. The Smiths all wore blazers over T-shirts that read, Free Slaves. The hearing room was filled mostly with young people, some trying to take photos of the famous family. The actress called for an extension of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, which provides funding to com bat trafficking and help trafficking victims. The act also created a task force, chaired by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, which coor dinates among federal agencies to implement policies against human trafficking. Rapper Pitbull heads to Walmart in Alaska ANCHORAGE, Alaska Miami rapper Pitbull is coming to Alaska. Over the last few weeks, Walmart has been running a marketing contest on its Facebook page.

BROWN hbrown@lakecityreporter.com The Columbia County Kiwanis Club is gearing up to host the sec ond annual Big Boy Toys Expo on October 20-21 at the Columbia County Fairgrounds. More than 3,000 attended the event last year, which lasted only one day. We were very pleased with the fact that we raised over $12,000 on our first event, Kiwanis member Steve Briscoe said. This year the Kiwanis Club hopes to kick it up a notch by making it a two-day event with even more activities and attractions for out doorsmen and their families. The Expo will host a 5K Warrior Dash, a top gun shooting tourna ment, an archery tournament and will showcase vendors of any and every style of outdoor equipment and merchandise. But the event is not only for men. Bounce houses, video games, a massage table and food vendors are also being brought to attract the whole family. We are trying to think of every aspect that we can to entertain all ages, Kiwanian Teena Peavey said. Peavey said the Expo will be advertised on a much larger scale this year, with calls going out from Tampa to Panama City. This event is going to be bigger than it was last year, she said. The Kiwanis Club is currently looking for sponsors for the event. For more information visit www.

The Chamber, with Dennilles expertise and an additional employee, will give the partnership the additional boots on the ground we need, Foreman said. During school visits, stu dents can meet Bellamy and learn things they can do every day to protect the springs and the water sup ply, he said. With the Chamber focus ing on TIPs marketing, it allows TIPs board to use its talents to administer the foundation, secure fund ing opportunities and fur ther build the message of springs protection locally, Foreman said. This is what TIP was intended to be all along, a community-led organiza tion, said Cindy Johnson, Suwannee River Water Management District TIP coordinator. The Chamber will bring a greater public awareness to TIP and help implement ideas the board already has in mind, she said. I think its going to be a good thing, Johnson said. The Chamber is going to be able to take this mes sage to a level that TIP would not have been able to do on its own. TIP: New partnership Continued From Page 1A Boatright said he doesnt know what to attribute the decrease to. I just cant explain Columbia County, he said. These numbers are just unreal this year, Boatright said. Several years ago when there was a decrease in the number of deaths, Boatright said officials could attri bute it to less people driving during the recession. This year officials arent sure why there is a decrease, but are glad to see less tragic accidents on county roadways, he said. Fatalities are generally spread out evenly throughout the year, although there are more accidents during the winter holidays, he said. We would like to finish with three for the whole year, but its not likely to happen, Boatright said. Suwannee County has also seen less traffic deaths this year, Boatright said. Six people have died in traffic acci dents there this year, but the county had 13 at this time and 19 total in 2011, he said.

Putnam says sugar reduced in school milk By BILL KACZOR Associated Press Producers have voluntarily reduced sugar content by 38 percent in chocolate and strawberry flavored milk thats sold in most of the states schools, Floridas agriculture chief said Tuesday. Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam also told the State Board of Education that only low-fat and no-fat milk is offered in those schools. We can knock two or three cubes off your chart, Putnam said during his appearance before the panel at Broward College in Fort Lauderdale. We did reduce the fat, the carbs and the sugar without a new rule. Even with the reduction, though, each serving of flavored milk contains about four teaspoons of sugar. The board had discussed possible restric tions on sugary drinks, including flavored milk, before the Legislature approved Putnams request to transfer its authority over school nutrition to the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. The federally supported program provides more than 277 million meals a year to 1.6 million Florida children. Of those, 78 percent qualify for free or reduce-priced lunches. Putnam also told the panel he has taken no action yet on soft drinks but that he expects the federal government to soon propose national rules. School districts set their own policies for soft drink vending machines in middle and high schools. Most allow students to use the machines only after regular school hours, said Putnam spokesman Sterling Ivey. Putnam said the reformulated flavored milk is sold in 67 of Floridas 75 school districts. The total includes 67 county districts and others for the Florida Virtual School, university laboratory schools and other specialized schools. It began with a small dairy that changed its formula at the request of the Sarasota County School District last year, Putnam said. The commissioner did not mention the milk and soft drink issues until ques tioned by board member Roberto Bobby Martinez. The Coral Gables lawyer had opposed moving the school nutrition program. He contended Putnam has a conflict of inter est because his focus is promoting agricul ture rather than looking out for childrens best interest. The commissioner, though, insists he can do both. The boards consideration of a sugarlimiting rule drew opposition from milk producers as well as some dietitians who were worried children simply would stop drinking milk if they no longer could get flavored varieties. Board member John Padgett, a former school superintendent from Key West, led the charge for limiting sugar. Padgett told Putnam that many experts say the expected federal soft drink rule will be too weak and pointed out that some states have imposed stricter regulations. My view is that there is a way for ward that involves offerings of 100 percent juices, waters, flavored waters, Putnam responded, noting schools rely on the vending machines as a revenue source. There are options out there that are healthier. Putnam, who has promised to make periodic reports to the board, said new federal nutrition guidelines being phased in over a three-year span will encourage menus geared to local harvests. That will give Florida, with its year-round growing seasons, a competitive advantage, he said. Youre going to see an increase in the number of fruits and vegetables on that plate, Putnam said. Id rather eat our fresh strawberries, our fresh citrus, our fresh blueberries, all the things that are being grown here during the school-year months as opposed to the challenge that, frankly, other states are going to have. Putnam also announced plans this fall for a new Eat to Compete program with professional sports teams to promote healthy eating. One of the programs biggest challeng es is feeding low-income children when school is out during the summer. The major issues are finding sites to distrib ute the meals such as YMCAs, Boys and Girls Clubs, churches, food banks and schools open for the summer and notify ing children and their parents of those sites, Putnam said. Currently, only 14 percent of eligible children are participat ing, although the number of sites has been increased by 11 percent this year, he said. He said the state now is partnering with United Way to notify people who call the private support networks 211 social ser vice referral line. because thats an automatic life in prison with no parole. Cassandra Kellum of Tallahassee, Tommy Lee Kellums daughter, said she was satisfied with the verdict. I think the state attorneys did a really good job. There were some things they had some discrepan cies about, which is fine, because that what happens in court, she said. Im actually satisfied with the case and satisfied how it took place and was handled. Kellum, who said she plans to attend the sentencing hearing, said her family has never really cared for Watson and there is a lot of animosity toward Watson for what she did and the manner she did it. Kellum said Watson should have left Kellum before the rela tionship turned deadly. She could have walked away many, many years ago, and it wouldnt have been a problem for not one member of my fam ily, she said. Kellum said the verdict will not give her or her family clo sure. Its not going to give us any closure until the sentencing day thats when well get closure, she said. Roberta Getzan, Third Circuit assistant state attorney and pros ecutor in the case, also said she was pleased with the verdict. Watson was indicted by the grand jury on first-degree mur der charges, but Watson was convicted of the lesser charge. The evidence absolutely sup ports the finding of the court on that charge as well, Getzan said. We are pleased with the verdict. While convicting Watson of second-degree murder, the court also noted Watson was guilty of discharging a firearm while causing someones death. Watson faces a minimum of 25 years in prison. During closing arguments, Getzan told Fina that the rela tionship between Kellum and Watson should have ended when their marriage ended and they had a strained relationship. She said on the evening that Kellum was killed he waited for Watson to return home and after she did, he turned the electricity off and though Watson begged him to turn the power back on, he would not. So in the dark, Watson armed herself with a .22caliber rifle from the gun rack in the home and fired five bullets into Kellum when he exited the bathroom. She basically started to shoot until the gun would shoot no more, Getzan said. Kellum was struck in the chest, abdomen, shoulder, back and head. Paynes closing arguments focused on why Watson com mitted the act and painted her as an often-abused person and too often the subject of Kellums anger. Tommy Kellum was a bully. He was physically abusive, Payne said, as he told the court that Kellum was charging at Watson when she fired those fatal shots attempting to back away from him. My thought is the judge felt there was some degree of provo cation and apparently he felt she (Watson) may have overreacted to that provocation, whatever that provocation was, Payne said. Watson was arrested in Erie, Pa. on a violation of probation warrant issued in Columbia County a few days after Kellums body was found, then confessed to shooting him, police reports from 2009 said. Watson lived with Kellum at 1714 NE Washington St. and though the two had been mar ried, they were not married when the shooting occurred. Watson also faced grand theft charges for stealing Kellums truck and using his bank card after his death. She was acquitted of those charges. The truck was recovered in Broward County after it was abandoned. Kellum was found dead in his Washington Street home Tuesday, June 23, 2009, after the Columbia County Sheriffs Office received a call from the Broward County Sheriffs Office requesting a well-being check. Kellum had been dead for sev eral days. This was a unique case in that the defendant elected to be tried by the court without a jury for the offense of first-degree murder, said Skip Jarvis, Third Circuit state attorney. I am pleased with the results and believe that justice has been done for the victim. The state is very proud of the effort put forth by Payne who worked with a very difficult set of facts, said Dennis Roberts, Third Circuit public defender. It was an excellent verdict in light of the serious charges. VERDICT: Watson convicted of 2nd-degree murder Continued From Page 1A

W ith dedi-cated foodies hounding the public to be “locavores,” consumers of locally grown farm products, and the health watchdogs urging increasingly obese Americans to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, it is no wonder that the number of farmers markets has soared to 7,175 nationwide, up 17 per-cent from a year earlier. Even first lady and nutrition advocate Michelle Obama endorsed and christened a weekly farmers market across the park from the White House. The markets range from a farmer selling fresh corn and tomatoes roadside from the back of a truck to summer-long tent encampments at the county fairgrounds. Americans enjoy the markets and the ven-dors enjoy the interaction with their customers, who tend to become regulars. But just because the fruits and vegetables look good and the person selling them looks like a farmer doesn’t make the produce any safer than what’s available at a bricks-and-mor-tar supermarket. Last summer in Oregon, strawberries tainted with E. coli killed one person and sickened 16 others. “Natural” doesn’t equate with “hygienic.” Mother Nature had contami-nated these strawberries natu-rally, by deer feces. Oregon requires vendors to sell only what they grow, but some of these strawberries were pur-chased and resold four times before they reached the con-sumer. As Carol Guensburg of Scripps Howard News Service reports in her look at food safety in farmers markets, an even worse outbreak followed that summer. Cantaloupes tainted with listeria bacteria -some of which were sold at farmers markets -killed at least 30 people and sickened 46 others in 28 states last sum-mer. The outbreak was traced to poor sanitation in a single Colorado farm. Foodborne illnesses are not just a Third World problem. In the U.S., they kill 3,000 and send 128,000 to the hospital each year. The federal govern-ment doesn’t have the staff or the funds to do exhaustive monitoring, and its recently tightened food-safety laws exempt small farmers and pro-ducers. In the last few years, at least 20 states have introduced or passed legislation that lets individuals sell homemade foods direct to customers -yes, at farmers markets – often without inspection or oversight. Some states permit the sale of salsas, pickles and other higher-risk items. In other words, government isn’t always looking out for you. State and local govern-ments decide whether to inspect farmers markets, how extensively and how often. Farmers-market industry groups are introducing vol-untary standards, guidelines and best practices to protect their customers and their busi-nesses. Farmers markets are a welcome, and healthy, supplement to the American diet. But don’t be shy about asking questions at your local farmers market. If they’re any kind of farmers, they’ll be happy to talk your ear off. And do what your mother told you: Scrub those raw fruits and vegetables, and wash your hands! Clean hands, common sense LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor:The Lake City Reporter ’s Letters to the Editor column allows we citizenry the freedom to hear our voices unabridged. Laud and kudos to management and policy. Letters often comprise observation, praise or criticism, now “fair assessment.” Having studied, observed, con-versed with and criticized Major Wilbur Corbitt, not achieving epiphany, I drew conclusion. My initial interac-tion with this fine man focused on our differences and concerns regarding Mitt Romney’s his-tory “of” and abilities “of” lead-ership. The Mitt paradigm fast became inconsequential to me and becomes seemingly more so as time roars along. That said, in phone conversation with reader respondents discussing Major Corbitt’s and my debate, a reoccurring theme and opin-ion surfaced. Major Corbitt in substance appears to be the very idea of what the compa-rable standard of leadership should be. Leadership can be manifested in many ways other than military, regardless, a history remains, whether pro-found, mediocre or absent. Major Corbitt’s history requires no gloss. There is no employment for a spin doctor to design an after-the-fact or embellish his leadership legacy. Major Corbitt served valiantly with distinction in Korea and Vietnam as a member of the United States Army. He is the recipient of a peacock’s litany of awards and decorations, of which four are Purple Hearts. (Which are the true payments on freedom). While making those regular payments so long ago, he witnessed the passing of many friends and comrades. In this aftermath, in selfless hom-age, he volunteers with The Military Order of the Purple Heart. His presence provides strength, moral support and lends a sense of normalcy to many lives that have experi-enced varying degrees of a surreal, insane existence. Major Corbitt demonstrates firm powers of conviction. He has a sense “of,” a mastery “of” and a great working application “of” history. He’s also quite fair of plume and language. He pos-sesses an uncommon even-tem-perateness. The even-temperateness compli-ments a reasonable and personable countenance. To touch on personal honor or loyalty would only deem this instrument even more redun-dant. The “Brian Donlevy-type mous-tache” he sports affords him to cut a dashing figure! (Or Errol Flynn, whatever!) Major Corbitt, you sir, deserve my personal respect and admiration and that of this com-munity. I thank you on behalf of the Purple Heart women and men. Although the guns of “our time” have long fallen silent, I still see your place is out front.Darrell AndersonLake City In praise of a true patriot Lake City Reporter Serving Columbia County Since 1874 The Lake City Reporter is published with pride for residents of Columbia and surrounding counties by Community Newspapers Inc.

Play the game he’s playing and you’d say he is to blame for the gang killings. Appropriate? I don’t think so, and neither do I think it is appropriate for his campaign to pound Romney for deeds done by Bain Capital after Romney had quit running the firm he founded. What’s far worse, of course, is the sugges-tion that Romney committed a crime. This isn’t just inap-propriate. It is gutter politics. It is what you would expect from someone who would do anything to win no matter how scummy. But scumminess was the crucial technique when Robert Bauer, Obama’s campaign law-yer, said there was proof that Romney was “fully in charge” of Bain Capital when it engaged in activities political opera-tives had denounced. He said that papers Romney filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission listed him as boss and that there was something much amiss if this was a misrep-resentation. It could even “result in an investigation by the SEC into possible criminal, as well as civil, violations of the law,” he harrumphed. Hooey. You can retain titles and interest in a firm without being actively engaged in its activities, and the idea that Romney was involved in some sort of subterfuge is absurd. During this period, he was run-ning the Winter Olympics in Utah for the whole world to see, and the filings with the SEC can hardly be construed as attempts to convince the government he was up to something else. A Washington Post fact checker has looked into the technicali-ties of all this and said Romney’s clean and Bauer is deserving of Pinocchio citations, meaning he was short on truth. To help Bauer understand, I hereby offer a story about myself. Back in the 1970s, I was editorial page editor of The Knickerbocker News in Albany, N.Y., was awarded a fellowship for professional journalists at the University of Michigan and took off for nine months. I did not give up the position or title, but was not accountable for editorials being written by another journalistic malefactor. If someone in Albany wanted to punch someone in the nose for an objectionable Knick News opinion during this period, he had no right looking me up in Michigan. Having said as much, I ought to say something else, too -that the supposedly foul deeds com-mitted by Bain while Romney was in Utah are foul mostly in the eyes of the mystified left. It seems that Bain invested in firms that outsourced some con-tracts abroad, supposedly cost-ing Americans jobs when the practice actually helps assure lower prices for masses of con-sumers while also helping our economy with efficiencies that can ultimately lead to expansion and more jobs. Romney said Obama should apologize for the criminality smear, but I would go further. He ought to apologize for get-ting all the way to the presiden-cy without understanding how important business leaders like Romney are and how the high profits he made while leading Bain are the stuff prosperity and job creation are made of. They are also that without which Obama could not conceivably continue his dreams of a wel-fare state utopia that, of course, would be no utopia, just more money spent on Obamacare-type programs doing more dis-service than service. That brings us back to Obama as community organizer, pre-paring himself for other liberal adventures of the heart while doing nothing of lasting sig-nificance. I suspect he did help some people here and there, and I applaud that, but father-less homes are the root cause of what is ripping the South Side apart, and nothing he did deterred that for a second. L egend has it that Washington was built on a swamp, and its sweltering summers add credence to the story. Lately, global warming adherents have been capitaliz-ing on the city’s sultry weather to advance their belief that the use of fossil fuels is responsible for rising temperatures baking the planet. Beware of warmists who point to localized summer heat as proof of climate change across the entire world: They’re only making hay while the sun shines. Eco-ideologist Al Gore posted an account on his blog Friday of a US Airways passenger jet becoming stuck at Reagan National Airport when its tires sank into the heat-softened tarmac while waiting to take off. Temperatures reached 100 degrees at the airport on July 6 when the incident occurred. A passenger with a phone camera posted a photo of the trapped plane, which Mr. Gore used to bolster his argument that carbon dioxide — the gas essential for all plant and animal life — is cap-turing the sun’s heat and threat-ening the global ecosystem. Relying on anecdotes of hot summer temperatures as evi-dence of global warming can be treacherous. The scorching heat in the eastern United States grabbed the headlines during the last week of June, but few noticed that on June 27, 116 cities from Montana to Florida measured record low temperatures. Orlando International Airport, for example, saw an overnight low of 64 degrees, shattering the previous record of 66 set in 1920. As sticky as June proved to be, it didn’t match the record set in 1933 when atmospheric carbon-dioxide concentration was less than it is today. Complaining about the weather is human nature, but those looking for someone to blame for summer heat should tell it to Mother Nature.

The mosquito-borne dis ease was detected in a sen tinel chicken on July 13. The countys environ mental health director Anthony Dennis says the chicken will be retested. Dennis says eastern equine encephalitis is often detected in the sum mer. Though its rare for humans to contract the disease, he says its one of the worst mosquito-borne illnesses. It can be fatal in humans. No human cases have been reported in Alachua County in recent years. Dennis told the newspaper a Florida Panhandle resi dent was diagnosed with the disease last week. He lives in Holmes County but had recently spent time in Washington County. Symptoms include head ache, fever and muscle aches. The Associated Press Mosquito-borne disease detected in Alachua Co. By GARY FINEOUT Associated Press TALLAHASSEE Florida spent nearly $2.5 million in the past year to provide security for Gov. Rick Scott, as well as a long list of visiting gov ernors and leaders from other U.S. territories and Puerto Rico. That was the highest amount spent by state authorities on secu rity in the last seven years, according to an annual report released Monday. Most of the money was spent on agents to provide around-the-clock security for Scott, as well as security for First Lady Ann Scott and upgrades to the security system at the Governors Mansion. Florida also spent nearly $295,000 on security for politicians including Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Delaware Gov. Jack Markell. A large bulk of the cost came from security provided by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for the Republican Governors Association conference, held late last year in Orlando. In total, FDLE provided 79 security details in the last year including details for six official visits by Jindal and one personal visit by Jindals family, three visits by Haley, five visits by Markell or his family, and five visits by Walker. The state also provided security for five visits by the governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands and visits by the governor of Puerto Rico and the gover nor of American Samoa. Florida agrees to pro vide security to visiting officials because other states foot the bill when Gov. Scott visits their state. The report also shows that the state paid nearly $1,000 to provide secu rity for two visits by First Lady Michelle Obama and to have agents escort Attorney General Pam Bondi when she attended oral arguments at the U.S. Supreme Court back in March. The state spent more than $15,000 to provide security for four days for Bondi. She has been a staunch opponent to the federal health care overhaul that ultimately was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. Florida was the lead state in suing to overturn the overhaul and wound up paying more than $38,000 in legal expenses on the lawsuit. The total Florida spent on providing security for other officials was actu ally $63,000 less than what the state spent during the 2010-11 fiscal year which runs from July 1 to June 30. But the cost for provid ing security to the gover nor increased from $1.8 million to nearly $2.2 mil lion in the last year. FDLE reported spending more on details as well as spend ing more on transportation and other expenses. The report covers a time peri od when Scott took trips to Brazil, Israel and Spain. Governor Scott is active and his work schedule often exceeds 8-hoursa-day and includes most weekends, said FDLE spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger. Each security detail is different and we adjust accordingly. Fla. spent nearly $2.5 million on security MIAMI A South Florida woman gave birth in her car on the side of Interstate 95. Authorities say the woman and her hus band stopped along I-95 near the Golden Glades Interchange near Miami about 3:30 a.m. Tuesday when she went into labor.

Fire rescue spokes man Wayne Sparks says they cut the cord and took the baby and mother to Memorial Regional Hospital in nearby Hollywood. Officials did not release the names of the couple and there was no word on whether the baby was a boy or a girl. No further details were immediately available.

Media days: Spurrier has USC near top of SEC heapBy DAVID BRANDTAssociated PressHOOVER, Ala. — Steve Spurrier finally has South Carolina near the top of the Southeastern Conference heap. He also believes he has the talent to keep the Gamecocks there. One year after leading South Carolina to an 11-win season, Spurrier said Tuesday that “we’re get-ting a little bit of a name out there.” The 67-year-old Spurrier is entering his eighth season at South Carolina. After five medio-cre seasons, he is 20-7 the last two years. Spurrier said he expects junior quarterback Connor Shaw to be improved this fall after playing well late last season. He also expects star running back Marcus Lattimore to be completely healthy after a knee inju-ry wiped out the last half of his 2011 season. The Gamecocks also have a senior-laden defense. First-year Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin says his “realistic expectations are to win” despite being placed in the toughest divi-sion in college football. The Aggies were the first team to take the podium at SEC Media Days, a three-day event that attracts more than 1,000 credentialed media members. The 47-year-old Sumlin was opti-mistic about Texas A&M’s future but also said “we understand the challenges that are ahead of us.” Texas A&M joins the SEC Western Division, which is home of the last three BCS national champions. The Aggies and Missouri joined the SEC in July. The Aggies return 14 starters from a team that fin-ished 7-6 last season. They must find a replacement for quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who left for the NFL.Slive talks Penn StateSoutheastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive said a recent report criticiz-ing Penn State’s handling of sexual abuse allegations serves as a stark reminder to schools and athletic pro-grams nationwide that they can’t let one individual “derail the soul of an institution.” Slive briefly but pointedly referenced last week’s report by a special inves-tigator in his opening address at SEC media days Tuesday.

ANNES, England — The most valu-able slip of paper found at any British Open is not a list of the odds. It’s the fore-cast. Neither of them can be trusted. Pot bunkers that are staggered down the fairway and surround the green were all the talk Tuesday at Royal Lytham & St. Annes, and no doubt they will play a critical role in deciding who has his name engraved on the claret jug. Because of a wet spring — really wet — the native grass covering the dunes and hillocks is so thick and deep that any ball going that far off line could be lost forever. No matter which links course golf’s oldest cham-pionship is played on, Elements could play huge role in year’s third major. OPEN continued on 3B Full exposureBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comMore than 80 people have shown up this summer for the second year of the Lake City Exposure Foundation football camp. In its second year, Adee Farmer’s camp has seen growth, so much so that Farmer had to cut off the participants at 85 children. The key to the camp is to introduce players to the basic concepts of football while working them into condition to play during the fall. “We’re working on the basics of conditioning and speed,” Farmer said. “We want to plant the seed for them. By the time they get to high school, they should know the basic skills and that all starts here.” Children ages 5-13 were welcomed to the camp by Columbia High head coach Brian Allen and several Tigers’ football coaches have made it out to speak at the camp. Allen will speak to all of the participants at a seasonending cookout to be held on July 31. “It’ll be a meet and greet to honor those that were dedicated to the program,” Farmer said. Those who make it through will also receive a shirt to commemorate their achievements — a fine accomplishment after enduring the summer heat. “We were trying to get the kids out of the house,” Farmer said. “We wanted to get them away from the video games. We’re focused on the conditioning, but my top concern is their health. We want to ease them into shape that way by the time August gets here it’s easy and they haven’t been sitting in the house all summer.” Farmer feels that those that go through the camp will have a leg up on those sitting inside. “Some will probably quit,” he said. “Those who are in shape will be more likely to pay attention when football starts. Others might get to hot and quit.” The camp has one more practice on Thursday this week and will conclude after practices on July 24 and July 26.

The Sunday Scramble turned into a “Big Sunday Sweep” for the team of Jason Watts, Amanda Odom and Will Robinson. The team finished in a three-way tie for first place at 4-under-par, then man-aged to win the playoff to secure the win. Better than that, they had a chance to win the big pot on Creeks No. 8. Quint Proveaux did the honors and pulled lucky No. 8, giving the big money pot for the team to divide. In the Wednesday Scramble the team of Todd Carter, Danny Harrington and Jerry Connell bested the field, also with a 4-under-par score. The teams with chances at the pot were not as lucky as on Sunday and the pot dodged another week. The growing pot will be in play for today’s scramble. The Friday Dogfight was another win for Garrett Odom at +7, as he squeaked by second-place Joe Herring’s +6 and third-place Chet Carter’s +5. Closest to the pin winners were: Randy Heavrin, No. 3; Carter, No. 5; Herring, No. 11; Garrett Odom, No. 15; Kevin Odom, No. 17.

Closest to the pin winners were Thomas on No. 15, Scott Kishton on No.17, Mehl on No. 3 and Mickey Wilcox on No. 7. The LGA low net format failed to produce a clear winner. Ann Bormolini, Suzi Davis and Carol Felton fought to a first-place tie with net 75s. Joe Paul rolled in a late birdie to record a winning score of +7 in the A flight of the Wednesday Blitz. Jordan Hale and Chad Hunter shared second place at +4. Roger Mitzel also rode a lone birdie to the first-place score of +5 in B flight. Don Combs and John Raulerson split second place money with +3. Buddy Slay, Chris Lewis, Don Howard and Hunter had a skin apiece. Both pot holes carried over. Ken Radcliffe at +7 had smooth sailing to a first-place finish in the A flight of the Saturday Blitz. Greg Lyons and Scott Kishton tied for second, four points behind the winner. Mike McCranie was another point back in fourth. Hank Rone (+6) escaped a trio of serious challengers for victory in the B flight. Chris Lewis (+5), Jerry Davis (+4) and Rickey Lovvorn (2) were close behind the winner. The skins game produced only two winners, as Joe Paul and McCranie split a nice payoff. Match one of Good Old Boys play ended with a low-scoring, 4-3 victory for the team of Monty Montgomery, Terry Mick, Bill Rogers and Hugh Sherrill over the team of Ed Snow, Stan Woolbert, Dave Cannon and Howard Whitaker. A three-way contest in match two went to the team of Shelton Keen, Bob Wheary, Brian Shead, Rob Brown and Merle Hibbard by an 8-5 count over the team of Marc Risk, Jim Bell, Bobby Simmons, Jim Stevens and Tom Garmin. The team of Eli Witt, Dennis Hendershot, Doyle Worthington, Mike Spencer and Dan Stephens finished in third place with 4 points. Montgomery had the day’s best score with a round of 39-36-75. Risk was two back with a 38-39-77. Rogers had the only nine hole win with a 39 on the back side. Carl Ste-Marie’s next Junior Golf Camp is 8-11 a.m. on July 23-27.

This is the only major remaining with a full field that does not send half the players off on the first tee and the other half on the 10th tee. Barry Lane will get the Open started on Thursday at 6:19 a.m. Ashley Hall will be the last to tee off at 4:11 p.m. Now, consider the weather on Britain’s seaside links can change in a New York minute. “Being on the right side of the draw always plays a part in the Open Championship,” Darren Clarke said. “You get good sides, bad sides. That’s part of the Open Championship. The scor-ing can differ massively because of these weather conditions. But that’s part and parcel of the Open Championship. Thankfully, I got a good one last year.” Clarke wound up winning at Royal St. George’s, and Saturday was the key. He was dressed in full rain gear, all black, when he walked onto the first tee with a share of the 36-hole lead. When he walked up to the 18th green, he was wearing short sleeves and blinked in the bright sunshine of late afternoon. The morning group faced raging wind and rain. They had no chance to make up ground. It was quite the opposite on a Saturday at Muirfield in 2002. Steve Elkington made the cut on the number and wound up in a four-way playoff, helped in part by playing Saturday morn-ing in pleasant conditions. Justin Leonard went from a tie for 50th to a tie for third by playing before the 30 mph gusts and bonechilling rain arrived. Tiger Woods? He wasn’t so fortu-nate. Going for the third leg of the Grand Slam that year, he had a career-high 81. “I was on the first tee when that stormed rolled in, Tiger Woods a group or two behind me,” Clarke said. “That was a tough one.” The forecast for the week? Seems like it chang-es every day. Woods put great detail into his practice round Sunday, his first time at Lytham in 11 years, fearful that the rest of the practice rounds would be washed out and that would be his best chances. He wound up playing the next two morn-ings, and the umbrella never came out of the bag. Lee Westwood felt like a genius Monday afternoon when he and Luke Donald decided to go out for a prac-tice round in the rain. Well before they finished, the sun was out, the breeze was gentle, and it was ideal. “It was one of the best Open Championship prac-tices I ever had,” Westwood said. The latest forecast — hold your umbrellas — is for rain on Wednesday, ending sometime Thursday morn-ing, followed by something called a “dry spell” that could last into the week-end, accompanied by gusts anywhere from 15 mph to 25 mph, more or less. Rory McIlroy was the heir apparent in golf last year at Royal St. George’s, lost his way in the wind and rain and then stunned British writers, who found out that the kid from Northern Ireland prefers sunny and calm weather. He did join the PGA Tour this year and lives part of the year in Florida. He also learned from his mistakes, which in this case was his attitude. “Those comments were just pure frustration, hav-ing really high expectations going into it, coming off a major win, really wanting to play well, get into conten-tion and not doing that,” McIlroy said. “And blam-ing the weather, blaming the draw, blaming my luck, basically.” No other major championship requires more luck than the British Open, though that’s been the case since it was first played at Prestwick in 1860, the year Abraham Lincoln was campaigning for U.S. presi-dent. It’s links golf. There are funny bounces on the ground. Some golf balls bounce to the right and go into a pot bunker, some bounce to the left and wind up close to the pin. It can be just as mysterious in the air. Geoff Ogilvy recalls seeing McIlroy coming up the 18th at St. Andrews two years ago with a chance to break the major champion-ship record of 63. He had to settle for par in such easy scoring conditions that it still only gave him a two-shot lead. That was among early starters, of course. “By the time I got to the third hole, it was blowing 30,” Ogilvy said. Payback came the next day, when the wind blew so hard in the afternoon that play was stopped because golf balls were moving on the putting greens. McIlroy shot 80. Louis Oosthuizen was early enough Thursday afternoon to miss some of the nasty stuff, and super early Friday morning to again dodge the worst of it. He won by seven shots. ASSOCIATED PRESSSpectators sit under umbrellas in the rain at Royal Lytha m & St Annes golf club ahead of the British Open Golf Championship, Lytham St Annes, England on Tuesday. ASSOCIATED PRESSRickie Fowler (right) and Phil Mickelson talk during a practice round at Royal Lytham & St Annes golf club ahead of the British Open Golf Champio nship, Lytham St Annes, England on Tuesday. Aging well, Phil still learning new tricksBy JIM LITKEAssociated PressLYTHAM ST. ANNES, England — He is one of those guys people have in mind when they say “so-and-so leads a charmed existence.” Phil Mickelson might have argued that point not too long ago, at least where the British Open was involved. But no more. As if Mickelson needed reminding, he crested a hill in the 17th fairway Tuesday at Royal Lytham to find his tee shot wasn’t nearly as disastrous as he had imagined. Sure, it was only a practice round, but consider-ing how much money was being wagered by the lefty and playing partners Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, and Nick Watney, a break that good was likely to pay dividends. That was con-firmed once Mickelson’s caddie, trailing by several strides, located the boss’ ball. “That’s what I’m talkin’ about!” Jim “Bones” Mackay howled. It had come to rest inches from the right edge of the last of seven deep bun-kers lining the left side of the fairway. If Mickelson had been a right-hander, he would have had to step into the sand, dig in his cleats and hit the approach from a lie with the ball some two feet above his own. Instead, he quickly set up on the starboard side of the ball and sent an 8-iron zooming to within a dozen feet of the flag. The value of that routine par at 17 became clear some 20 min-utes later, when Mickelson and Fowler strolled off the 18th green with fatter wallets, wider grins and — wouldn’t you know it? — moments ahead of yet another downpour. There was a time when Mickelson found very little to like about playing on this side of the pond. Having grown up in San Diego, he wasn’t crazy about the weather. As a player whose strengths are flighting the ball with different trajec-tories and delicate spins, he seemed unsettled by the unyielding turf and the need to play the ball along the ground. That much was apparent from his track record at the Open, easily his worst among the game’s four majors. “Aside from the success you had last year, how would you describe how your attitude toward this championship has changed?” Mickelson was asked. He considered the question a moment. “It’s evolved favorably, I think. It took me a while to be able to understand what it meant to get the ball on the ground. ... It didn’t really click until six, eight years ago. “Now,” he added, “when it gets really bad weather, my misses in crosswinds are not as bad as they used to be, because it’s on the ground and out of the wind a lot quicker. And that’s made me really enjoy and appreciate playing links golf and playing in the ele-ments.” Last week, Mickelson even cut short a fam-ily vacation to play in the Scottish Open, where he finished tied for 16th. “He’s finally getting the whole bad-weather thing,” said Butch Harmon, Mickelson’s swing coach. “He likes to bomb the ball, take risks and, until the last couple years, he was stubborn about changing. “But the second last year at (Royal) St. George’s rein-forced some of the work we’d been doing and now, the worse the conditions, the more conservative his game gets. If Phil is going to win one of these,” Harmon added, “it will be because he’s playing them a lot differently from the way he used to.” Mickelson’s play on links courses is hardly the only thing that’s changed during his career. He won a PGA Tour event as a 21-year-old amateur, but another 13 years passed before Mickelson won his first major. There’s no way to know how many more he might have won had Tiger Woods not come along to dominate what should have been Mickelson’s prime. And yet, you could argue he’s aged more gracefully than his grand-est rival and last year, according to Forbes maga-zine, even put more money in the bank.

DEAR ABBY: How do you tell a young girl about sex, and what’s the best way to go about telling her? My niece is 12 and hasn’t had her first period yet. But she has a serious crush on an older boy, and kids grow up real fast in our neighborhood. You’d be shocked if you knew how young they are when they start fooling around. This is a difficult subject to discuss, but I know that our talk will have to hap-pen pretty soon. She is closer to me than to her mom. When I was growing up, the word “sex” wasn’t mentioned, and one of my cousins got pregnant in her sophomore year of high school. I don’t want that same mistake made again. Please help. I heard you have a book about this. How can I get one? -ALMOST READY IN LOUISIANA DEAR ALMOST READY: Kids grow up fast all over these days -not just in your neighborhood. “The talk” with your niece should have started long ago as part of an ongoing discussion because young people are maturing earlier than they did years ago, for a variety of reasons. Because it hasn’t already started happening, your niece should be told that there will be changes in her body and that they are normal. She should also be assured they are nothing to fear. You heard correctly that I publish a booklet about what teens should know about sex (and drugs) that covers a variety of important topics. Adults and parents some-times find the subject diffi-cult to discuss. My booklet was written to help “break the ice” and begin the discussion more easily. It can be ordered by sending your name and address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds) to Dear Abby Teen Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL, 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. It could be very helpful to you if you review it before starting the discussion with your niece so you can prepare beforehand to answer her questions or guide the con-versations. Important topics that are included are “How old must a girl be before she can get pregnant?” “How old must a boy be before he can father a child?” “What time of the month is a girl 100 percent safe?” and “Can a girl get pregnant the first time she has sex?” In addition, there is a section on various sexu-ally transmitted diseases and what to do if you think you may have one. It is extremely important that they be treated right away, because not doing so can have lifelong consequences. Knowledge is power, and the more information your niece has, the better she can be prepared for making the decisions that lie ahead of her. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I have a lighted doorbell at my front door. But nine out of 10 people who come here still knock rather than use the bell. Sometimes I don’t hear them, so then they’ll start pounding with a lot of force until they can get my attention. They never resort to using the door-bell. Why are people so stubborn? -AT HOME IN MELBOURNE, FLA. DEAR AT HOME: I’m not sure it’s stubbornness. They simply might not think to use it. However, I may have a solution for you. Post a sign over your doorbell that reads: PLEASE RING BELL!

The project area is in the north-west area of the OSC east of U.S. 441 and northeast of Benton Tower Road in Columbia County, Florida. On June 6, 2011, a lightning-caused wildfire burned through several large slash pine plantations. The OSC now proposes to restore these stands and adjacent unburned stands to native longleaf pine totaling approximately 1,877 acres. All areas proposed for treatment are slash pine plantations. Previously held in private ownership, several stands are 150 to 200 acres in size. In order to accelerate restora-tion of longleaf pine, the OSC is seeking regional forester approval to exceed the 80-acre maximum single harvest opening restriction as descri-bed in the National Forest System Land Management 2012 Planning Rule (Federal Register, Vol. 77, No. 68). Also, as a recent land acquisi-tion, the project area has not been as-signed a Management Area category per the National Forests in Florida 1999 Land Resource Management Plan. The OSC proposes that the project area be included in Manage-ment Area category 7.3 to allow for timber management and longleaf pine restoration. Before a decision is made approving the opening size re-striction or the designation of a man-agement area, a 60-day public notice is required. OSC District Ranger Ivan Green invites you to offer com-ments about the above project. While this public notice is not a legal com-ment period per 36 CFR 215, all comments will be considered. We anticipate publishing a notice for the 36 CFR 215 30-day legal comment period for this project in this newspa-per at the end of August 2012. The South Sandlin Bay Timber Salvage and Restoration predecisional EAis available for review on the website for the National Forests in Florida at http://www .fs.usda.gov/projects/osceola/landmanagement/projects If you would like a hard copy please contact our office at 386-752-2577 or email our NEPACoordinator Cindy Thompson at cynthiathompson@fs.fed.us Comments can be sent by regular mail to Ivan Green, District Ranger, Osceola National Forest, 24874 U.S. Highway 90, LegalSanderson, FL32087.

Wednesday, July 18, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 1C A call to sing along -Below By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com T here has been no shortage of volunteer efforts to help area residents recover from the impact Tropical Storm Debby laid on Columbia and sur rounding counties when it dumped more than two feet of water on the area. Although Ellis Lindsey is retired, he has been busy working to help peo ple put their lives back in order as an American Red Cross supervisor. Lindsey, 58, is a Fort White resident who has been helping in the recov ery efforts as a Red Cross volunteer searching and marking homes inun dated with Tropical Storm Debby flood waters. Lindsey has been a Red Cross volunteer since 2009. He and his wife, Leila Lindsey, are both vol unteers. We just got involved with a community activ ity, he said, listing how he first became a Red Cross volunteer. We started out as a CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) Team out of south ern Columbia County. We were called out in 2009 to assist the Red Cross and at that point I was a little depressed with Red Cross dealings, but we got involved with Red Cross helping them and they impressed me and we joined them. During the Tropical Storm Debby recovery effort, Lindsey and his wife began assisting their fellow county residents and residents in Suwan nee County. Ellis Lindsey has served as disaster assessement team member while his wife has helped in other capacities. We were going out hunting homes that handnt had a chance to report in or couldnt report in, he said. We were kind of chasing rainbows around to see what we could find.Then we went to assessing houses that were called in and thats what were finishing now. We give that information over to client case manag ers who can actually assist the people and get FEMA involved. For the past few days Lindsey has used his knowledge of local road ways, streets and thor oughfares to guide Red Cross disaster assessment team members to areas where they could assess damage to homes as well as help people who need supplies or who need to register for assistance. Ive lived here all my life and Im pretty good about directions, so I wound up having to give directions to people com ing in to the area, he said. Its helped them because they are coming into an area theyve never been through, so it helps when somebody generally knows the area. If I can get in there and get the lay of the land, I do real well about finding things. As a damage assessment team member, Lindsey has been trainned on how to estimate damage to a home based on the amount of water that has entered the home and the amount of time the water has been in the home. His work calls for him to use a chart to make the estimates, based on the water depths in the dwell ing from the floor to the ceiling, taking into account the parts of the home and its foundation. The water depths are measured in inches. The more water thats in the dwelling, it puts it in a different area and when it starts putting it into major (damage) and destroyed dwelling, we bring that information in so the case workers help those families first because they are the most needy, he said. Lindsey encouraged other seniors to volunteer. This world is based on helping your neighbor and thats exactly what the American Red Cross does, he said. We do everything as far as money and donations, but its not grants all over the place like some people may think. Everything is from donations from people like us giving a little money. As far as retired people, it gives you something to do and the privledge of knowing you helped your neighbor. TONY BRITT /Lake City Reporter Johnny Copeland (from left) points to damage on his property as Ellis Lindsey completes a damage assessment report for the American Red Cross. Lindsey, a Fort White resident, has been a Red Cross volunteer since 2009. Retired couple volunteers after disasters By BETHANY RODGERS The Frederick News-Post FREDERICK, Md.

For most dates in the month, the 80-year-old Frederick resident plans to set up his karaoke equip ment at a local nursing home or church and belt out some melodies with his singing partner, Betty Ridgely. Hes in high demand at the elder care facili ties, drawing crowds of more than 30 or 40 people at some places, in part because he said he sticks to the music people know. Old people like old songs, the retired rever end said. Baugher said hes been blending folk tunes with karaoke for about 10 to 12 years, ever since he had to put down the guitar because playing the chords became too difficult for his fingers. Though he could no lon ger accompany his singing with the guitar, he wasnt about to give up music, so he bought his own PA system to start leading karaoke. Then he started making rounds at local nursing homes. Now, his bookings stretch from Glade Valley Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Walkersville to Golden Living Center in Hagerstown. Hes even christening the new Citizens Care and Rehabilitation Center building with a karaoke event. His performances last for about an hour, but resi dents are always ready for more, he said. The people can enter into it, with the words on the screen. Some of them really get into it, he said. Baughers repertoire is heavy on church music Cause thats what I am: Born again but he also adds some Elvis to the mix, he said. He knows hundreds of the songs by heart; hes been playing them since he was about 20 years old and first picked up a guitar, and he doesnt just wait for performances to enjoy them. Hes always singing a different song, Ridgely said. On the senior circuit, a call to sing along ASSOCIATED PRESS Rev. Arthur Pete Baugher Sr. and Betty Ridgely sing a song together after setting up kara oke equipment at Victory Christian Center for an upcoming show in Frederick, Md. Ordained in 1958, Baugher spent about 15 years as a leader at Bartholows Pentecostal Church and then for about seven years preached every Sunday at a West Virginia campsite while still living in Frederick on weekdays. Much of his life, Baugher said hes led sing ing at churches and nurs ing homes, and since his experience spans decades, he said he never gets ner vous. Ridgely was a little dif ferent; she never felt com fortable singing in public until Baugher helped her gain confidence. But Baugher seems to be a pretty confident per son all-around. For exam ple, try wishing him good luck on a performance. Luck has nothing to do with it, he said with a halfsmile. Its all skill. By MICHELLE BEARDEN The Tampa Tribune LARGO There she was, sitting in a northern Arizona restaurant, thumb ing through a local maga zine while waiting for her meal to arrive. Thats when Jamie Flores saw the article on alpacas. The wooly-headed Huacayas that looked like Muppets, and the Suris, resembling Jamaican rock stars with their pencil-thin dreadlocks. How adorable! she thought. She talked her husband, Bob, into visiting a nearby ranch to see the llama-like animals up close. And thats how it all began, Flores says. The couple were so taken with alpacas that when they returned home to Largo, they plowed their one-acre property and started shopping around to add one or two to their backyard menagerie. They liked the idea of having some exotic animals to join their dogs, goats and min iature donkey. Today, the Floreses shes a nurse manager at Largo Medical Center Hospital; hes a retired firefighter and gun shop owner own 31 alpacas. The females are boarded at two other farms; the males live with them. She loving ly refers to them as The Boys in the Backyard. Theres nothing like coming home to my boys after a stressful day at work, she says. Even though Flores has great affection for some of her favorites, she acknowl edges theyre not supposed to be cuddly pets. Bottom line, theyre livestock, and theyve become potential money makers as the demand for alpaca fleece grows. For now, she sells fiber goods made from alpaca shearings at her husbands store, Pacas and Pistols. The animals give the Floreses something else: a dream. The couple plan to move one day to the 40 acres they bought in Arizona and run a big alpaca ranch. Raising livestock for breeding, shearing and enjoyment is far more palatable to them than raising them for slaughter. Theyll be our retire ment income, Flores says. The love affair in America for alpacas is a rel atively new phenomenon. It began in 1984, when importers brought the first alpacas here from South America, the ances tral home of these hardy, graceful creatures from the camelid family. Inca tribes that lived with them in the Andes Mountains called their dense, luxuri ous fleece the Fiber of the Gods. Modern-day humans love it as well.
