By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City man was fatally shot Friday during an argument and the two suspects hijacked a car before leading police on a chase, according to reports. After the pursuit, police say they found more than $20,000 worth of cocaine on the suspects. Carlos Lamar Williams, 31, was shot multiple times at Wayne Drive Apartments, where he lived, and was pronounced dead at Lake City Medical Center, according to a release from Steve Shaw, public information officer for the Lake City Police Department. Williams, LaQuanza Dontya Gee, 28, of Live Oak and Leonard Shundel Goodman, 32, of Jacksonville were arguing before the shooting, police said. Police are still investigating why the men were arguing, Shaw said. At about 6:24 p.m., LCPD received an anonymous call of possible gunshots at 1442 N.W. Wayne Place. When Sgt. Larry Shallar respond-ed, residents directed him to Williams and pointed to a vehicle leaving the scene sayGoodman CALL US:(386) 752-1293SUBSCRIBE TOTHE REPORTER:Voice: 755-5445Fax: 752-9400 Opinion ................ 4ABusiness ................ 5AObituaries .............. 6A Advice & Comics ......... 8B Puzzles ................. 2B TODAY IN PEOPLE Drug raids across state.

To date there have been 16 separate complaints of counterfeit money being passed, totaling $1,300 in fake currency by way of 42 counterfeit bills. There has even been a report where a woman was given a coun-terfeit bill through a local automatic teller machine. The counterfeit bills have primar-ily been $50, $20 and $5 notes.

Benjamin Franklin Thought for the Day BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. Charlie Sheen says hes not insane anymore. Instead, these are good days for the Anger Management star, he declares, with his FX sitcom half-way through its initial 10-episode run and poised to get an order for 90 more. Sheen told reporters Saturday that the prospect of continuing is as exciting as hell, and added cheerily, I dont think 90s gonna be enough. With the expected pickup, FX plans to bring aboard Sheens dad, Martin Sheen, as a regular cast member. He will play the father of Charlie Goodson, the anger-management therapist played by Charlie Sheen. The veteran movie actor, who also played President Jed Bartlet on the drama series The West Wing, is guest-starring on an Anger Management episode that airs Aug. 16. I think that was the best episode we did, his son said. Adding Sheen pere to the series will give an extra dimension and make it a multi-generational family show, said FX boss John Landgraf in making the announcement. The production sched ule would call for filming a total of 100 episodes in just two years. This kind of cost-saving routine means no time for rehearsals, said executive producer Bruce Helford. The actors get the lines, we see the scene, the writ ers make changes, the actors go to makeup, cam eras are blocked, we come back together and shoot the scene, he explained. At first, the cast members felt like basically they were on the ledge. But by the third episode, everyone found the characters to the point that the writers were following their lead, Helford said. I feel like how we started, we just scratched the surface barely, said Sheen, who arrived for his appearance at the Television Critics Association session clad in Bermuda shorts, a long-sleeve shirt and loafers without socks. He likened his tumultu ous departure from Two and a Half Men and the stormy aftermath last year to a dream he couldnt wake up from. Or like a train I couldnt get off of, except that I was the conductor, he added, speaking in quick bursts and fidgeting in his chair. He said he learned a lot from that period, including stick to what you know. Referring to his disastrous My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option tour in spring 2011, he got laughs from the group when he advised, Dont go on the road with a one-man show in 21 cities without an act. Im not insane anymore, he summed up. Whats different now from Sheens angry stretch on Men, characterized by his much-publicized clashes with series creator Chuck Lorre? Helford weighed in with a theory. On Men, he ven tured, Charlie didnt really have a voice with creative input. It wasnt built that way. On Anger Management, Helford said hes forged a partnership with his star. We built this together, he said. And when Charlies on the stage, thats his stage. When you feel that, your creative juices are flowing, everything is better for you, because you have a say in what youre doing. When you dont control your destiny, things get screwed up in your head, he said as Sheen nodded. On Anger Management, Charlie Goodson thrives on chaos. Sheen was asked if he does, too, or if he longs for a sim pler life. I can wish every min ute for a simple life. Its not gonna happen, Sheen replied. But I dont really look at it as chaos. I look at it as challenges. Queen tours Olympic Park LONDON Queen Elizabeth II toured Londons Olympic heart land Saturday hours after she surprised a worldwide audience by starring as the newest Bond Girl. The queen got a birds eye view of the Olympic Park complex atop the 377foot (115-meter) Orbit sculp ture beside the stadium, where on Friday night she officially opened the 2012 Games. Her husband Prince Philip and London Mayor Boris Johnson accompanied her as she rode two floors up the sculptures elevator to meet designer Anish Kapoor. Dressed in a royal blue silk dress, crepe coat and matching hat, the queen could be heard remarking at the views of the London skyline and countryside up to 20 miles (32 kilometers) away. She was also wearing a brooch given to her in 1948, the last time London hosted the Olympics and four years before her acces sion to the throne. Johnson said the queen had told him she was very, very impressed with the success of her first film appearance, her first dra matic venture. It was very funny and seems to have gone down particularly well with the international audi ences. Buckingham Palace con firmed that the 86-year-old monarch agreed last year to participate in Danny Boyles film portion of his four-hour opening ceremony extrava ganza. Filming took place at the palace in March and April and featured three of the queens corgi dogs: Monty, Holly and Willow. Boyles production involved Daniel Craig, the reigning James Bond, strid ing into Buckingham Palace to escort his VIP guest to the Olympic ceremony. Many watching had expect ed a famous actress to play the role of the queen, and untold thousands in the audience audibly gasped as the real-life queen was seen to swivel round in her desk chair and declare: Good evening, Mr. Bond. Charlie Sheen sitcom poised for 90-episode pickup n Associated Press PALATKA No criminal charges have been filed after 10 stores in Putnam County were raided this week for selling syn thetic marijuana. The raid was part of a sheriffs office investigation targeting retailers who sell the drug also known as K-2. The Florida Times-Union reports no charges were filed, but retailers were warned that repeated violations could result in felony charges for sale of the mind-altering substance. The newspaper reported late Friday that Putnam Countys operation was launched in response to a July 1 change in Florida law that makes the sale of these synthetic drugs illegal Man caught with illegal immigrants NAPLES A man Collier County authorities say tried to smuggle six illegal immigrants from Texas to Miami has been arrested on human smuggling charges. An arrest report shows 49-year-old Armando ValdesRodriguez was stopped Thursday afternoon because he was speeding. The deputy who pulled over the car noted that the driver was extremely nervous and shaking uncontrol lably. The six passengers in the car told deputies they were travel ling for work. One of them was a 13-year-old boy who was later reunited with his family. The other five remain in custody. Agents with the Department of Homeland Security responded to the scene. No further information was immediately available Saturday. Woman: Man fell from bike, tried to rob her GAINESVILLE A woman told Gainesville police a man who fell off his bike tried to rob her. Now, authorities are looking for the man seen wearing finger less gloves, like the ones used by cyclists. The Gainesville Sun reports the woman told police she was in her car when she saw a man fall from his bike Friday night. She got out of her car to help and thats when she says the man tried to rob her of jewelry and other belongings. She fought back and got in her car to chase after him. He got away, but the unidenti fied woman had minor cuts to her arms and stomach from the scuffle. Miamis airport Metrorail Station opens MIAMI Miamis new Metrorail Station that will con nect major hubs in the city to the airport is now open. Congresswoman Ileana RosLehtinen will participate in Saturdays grand opening of the Miami International Airport Metrorail Station and the Orange Line Metrorail Service. A county statement says both services are the largest expan sion of the countys Metrorail sys tem since its opening in 1984. Ros-Lehtinen said in a news release that the project will create jobs and during these tough eco nomic times that is the best part of this project. Squad nabs Most Wanted fugitive LAUDERHILL A fugitive fea tured on Americas Most Wanted is being held in the Broward County Jail on a charge of attempt ed felony murder. Jail records show 27-yearold Amos Isaac remained jailed Saturday without bond. It was not immediately known if he has an attorney. A sheriffs office press release says Isaac was wanted for nearly beating a 20-year-old woman to death with a shovel on Jan. 10th. He eluded authorities for months until investigators received information that he was in the Lauderhill area. He was arrested after a foot chase. Tampa to see heavy traffic during RNC TAMPA Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor says the Republican National Convention will likely cause the heaviest traffic in down town Tampa on the first day of the convention. The Tampa Bay Times reports that downtown business owners will also have to make temporary plans for their garbage during the event, which will be held Aug. 27-30. Although the RNCs big event on Aug. 26 is scheduled for Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Castor told merchants that Tampa might still see some activity on that Sunday. Restaurant partners with housing project MIAMI A trendy Miami restaurant is partnering with a local housing project to purchase organic produce. Miami Dade Colleges Tuyo restaurant is buying boxes of pro duce, including everything from arugula to zucchini, from Verde Gardens 22-acre organic farm. The community offers affordable housing for formerly homeless families and those with disabili ties. The partnership will create new jobs for the communitys 550 residents.

LCPD defibrillators could save livesBy LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comD uring a cardiac emergency, mere minutes can make a difference between life and death. Lake City Police Department officers are now equipped with automatic electronic defibrillators, life-saving technology that can check a persons heart rhythm and deliver a shock when needed. Eight AED units will be spread among the departments officers and shift com-manders to provide constant support for Lake City residents and visitors, accord-ing to a release from Steve Shaw, LCPD public information officer. A $5,180 grant allowed the department to purchase four AED units and the city matched the funding through the police departments operating budget to pur-chase four more units, according to the release. As first responders, LCPD officers are certified through the American Heart Association in cardiopulmonary resuscita-tion (CPR) and the use of AEDs. Officers must re-certify every two years. The department completed certification July 10 and 12, according to Shaw. More than 380,000 Americans each year are assessed by EMS for sudden car-diac arrest, which occurs when electrical impulses in the heart go awry and cause it to stop beating normally, according to the American Heart Association. Only 11 percent of people who experience sudden cardiac arrest outside the hospital setting survive. AEDs are very accurate and easy to use, according to the heart association. The AED uses voice prompts, lights and text messages to tell the rescuer the steps to take. The police department was awarded AEDs through the Edward Byrne Justice Assistance Grant, a U.S. Department of Justice program, named for a New York City Police officer killed on duty, that allows states and local governments to support a broad range of activities to pre-vent and control crime and to improve the justice system. The Lake City Police Department is excited to have this life saving capabil-ity available for the citizens of Lake City, Shaw said. He is currently running for reelection against Lake City attor-ney Jeff Siegmeister. Although Jarvis previously fired San Filippo, the complaint does not appear to be about San Filippos termination. A disgruntled ex-employee has made allegations against him, Collins said of Jarvis. According to Collins, Sabrina San Filippo, Michael San Filippos wife, was allegedly in possession of a firearm and Jarvis used the National Crime Information Center to see whether it was proper for her to be in possession of a firearm. The NCIC is an electronic clearinghouse of crime data that can be used by criminal justice agencies. It is not known whether other allegations will be offered to the grand jury. I dont really know exactly all of it, Collins said. The circumstances under which Sabrina San Fillippo was allegedly seen with a firearm are unclear. It is known that she is a volunteer member of the Suwannee County Sheriffs Posse. However, posse members at her level do not carry guns, accord-ing to Suwannee Sheriff Tony Cameron. She has never worn a gun as part of the posse, Cameron said. Michael San Filippo said Jarvis used lies and misinformation for his own personal or political advantage. Jarvis has illegally systematically endeavored to ruin the lives of dozens of honest citizens in Suwannee, Hamilton, Lafayette, Columbia, Dixie, Taylor and Madison counties by spreading lies, tales of dishonesty, and out-ward deceit, including a personal and illegal campaign against pros-ecutor Michael J. San Filippo, and his wife, Sabrina San Filippo, said Michael San Filippo in an email to the Lake City Reporter referencing himself. Collins said he hopes the case against Jarvis, a Democrat, is not politically motivated. We would hope this prosecution is not politically motivated. But we do know for a fact that Mr. Jarvis opposed Gov. Scotts run-ning for office, Collins said. Collins said he does not believe King is politically motivated. Bill King is just doing what hes been ordered to do, Collins said. He certainly welcomes the opportunity to testify before the grand jury, Collins said of Jarvis. Michael San Filippo said on Saturday that he could not com-ment on the proceedings until they were complete. Messages left for King on Friday were not returned. ing, Thats them. LaQuanza Dontya Gee, 28, of Live Oak and Leonard Shundel Goodman, 32, of Jacksonville fled the apartment complex after the shooting, according to police. They ran to the neigh-boring complex, Greentree Apartments, and allegedly carjacked a white Acura at gunpoint. Shallar saw the two suspects leave and pursued them. The men traveled at about 40 miles per hour through the city. Columbia County Sheriffs Office dep-uties took the lead outside city limits. Police chased Gee and Goodman down Old Country Club Road and onto Southeast Lanvale Street, where they slowed to about 20 miles per hour but continued to flee. Sheriffs deputies used the Pursuit Intervention Technique stop the chase. The vehicle driv-en by the suspects left the roadway and crashed into a fence ending the chase, according to police. Gee was arrested and charged with homicide, rob-bery, cocaine distribution, aggravated battery and fir-ing a weapon. He is being held in the Columbia County Jail without bond. Goodman were arrested and charged with homicide, robbery, distribution of a dangerous drug, aggravated battery, resisting an officer and firing a weapon. He was also held without bond. Police found a bag of cocaine weighing approxi-mately 200 grams, with a street value of over $20,000 in the white Acura, which was taken into evidence. The sandwich-sized baggie of drugs could have easily fit into a pocket, Shaw said. The Acura was taken into custody and being held for investigation. LCPDs Criminal Investigations Division responded along with the State Attorneys Office and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. At this time the investigation is ongoing. meeting. Mayo said the purpose of the meeting is to get input from the community because the organization has received complaints from community residents about the police department. Weve got some complaints that some of the police need some serious training, Mayo said. This community town hall meeting is being held to get feedback from the community. The branch had said it would seek Gilmores oust-er at a July 16 city council meeting, during which state level representatives of both the NAACP and Southern Christian Leadership Conference called for her to quit or be fired. However, the Friday before, the local groups executive board changed course, and Mayo announced at the meeting that the branch would hold a town meeting instead to get feedback from the com-munity on Gilmores perfor-mance, as well as that of LCPD in general. The meeting is set for 7 p.m. at the Richardson Community Center, 255 NE Coach Anders Lane. Mayo said the complaints about LCPD are not just about beat officers, but about Gilmore as well. He said Gilmore does not have an open door policy where she talks to residents about concerns about police treatment. If someone has a problem, the chief does not have an open door policy. She doesnt return calls, Mayo said. She is the first police chief in Columbia County that doesnt have an open door policy. All the other chiefs of police had an open door policy and if you had a problem with a police officer, you could go to the police department without an appointment and they would welcome you in. Mayo said he called Nweze and talked about the complaints the local NAACP branch was receiving about the police department and Nweze offered to come in, hear the complaints and con-duct the meeting. At the July 16 meeting city council members unanimously gave Gilmore and city manager Wendell Johnson, whose resignation was also sought by state level NAACP and SCLC rep-resentatives, a vote of confi-dence. Mayo said it was important to schedule tomorrows meeting to get more input from the community regard-ing residents concerns and opinions. Some of the input that we get from the commu-nity could be very helpful in getting her (Gilmores) res-ignation, he said. Were not going to give up asking for her resignation. We will continue working on that, to call for her resignation, until we are satisfied. Mayo said the state NAACP felt it had enough information to call for Gilmores resignation and they outlined to the local branch its protocol. We have to fulfill the duties, responsibili-ties and principals of the NAACP guidelines to call for Gilmores resignation and we will continue to do so, Mayo said.

OUR OPINION W eve spent the better part of two weeks interviewing candidates who want to be elected to various offices in Columbia County. Its been an interesting adventure, but time well spent. The purpose of the exercise is to get to know the candi-dates, try to figure out where they stand on the important issues facing Columbia County and share our insight on who we think will best lead us through the issues facing us as residents and taxpayers. Our endorsements for office will appear in the Friday, Aug. 3 edition of the Lake City Reporter Our political special section will also be a part of that issue, so you can read can-didate responses to additional questions. There were no trick questions when our editorial board interviewed the candidates. Anyone who is paying atten-tion to current government or school operations should be at least somewhat famil-iar with the topics. We shut the door and they let fly with their responses. Their specific answers are confidential. Education funding, school curriculum, and teacher and student assessment methods were a few of the starting points with superintendent and school board candidates. Economic development, infrastructure, job creation, recreation, and long-term vision for the future were some of the topics we discussed with county and city candidates. Some could discuss chapter and verse about these pertinent issues and gave a solid vision for what should happen next. Others had inaccurate informa-tion and were misinformed or had no knowledge at all of one or more of the topics. Beyond our interviews, we have studied the candidates claims in campaign advertis-ing and statements made in public at the candidate forums around the county. We will give one final evaluation as we lis-ten to the televised candidate forums Monday, Tuesday and Thursday this week. We exam-ined professional experience and background as thoroughly as we could. When we make our recommendations, we do so carefully. We take elections, and the direction our county needs to go, very seriously. Youll hear more about this from Editor Robert Bridges in Wednesdays Lake City Reporter Keep in mind that all of the people running are good people. They all have a vested interest in Columbia County or, as in the case of the Circuit Judge candidates, the region they seek to represent. Every candidate seemed to have his or her heart in the right place. Every candidate believes he or she has a good reason for enter-ing the race and they put their money and their time behind their desire. Many said they decided it was time to put up or shut up. They chose to step up. The political arena is brutal. We respect all of them. Were not trying to cram our views down your throat or tell anyone how to vote. Youre a free American, but with that comes a responsibility to make up your own mind and vote. Well do our best to explain why we select the candidates and hopefully this will be helpful. Were also very well aware that many political races in Columbia County come down to the fact that one candidate may have more relatives in their district than the other candidate or go to the right church or simply be more likeable in pub-lic. Many times, its a popularity contest. And so it goes. Every election is very important to shape the future of the government body in question. As always, were at a turning point in our countys and our school districts growth and development. The candidates you select and where you cast your vote is important. And its up to you. Just make the effort to do something and cast your ballot. Primary election day is Aug. 14. Early voting begins Saturday at the Supervisor of Elections office. Coming Friday: Our political picks LETTERS TO THE EDITOR We wish to express our thanks to everyone who helped make the Three Rivers Rain Relief fundraiser so successful. This effort was organized and executed within a seven-day period, in an effort to quickly put money into the hands of Columbia County flood victims who were displaced from their homes due to TS Debby. The enormous amount of time and energy contributed to this emer-gency cause was overwhelming. The vast majority of local business owners we approached were eager to donate food, drink, equipment, supplies and other items needed for the eve-ning; we could not have pulled off this event without their generosity. Chef Extraordinaire Paul Mehalko coordinated an elaborate meal within a 24-hour period, and through his and many other volunteers efforts, over 200 people enjoyed a deli-cious spread. Martha Young worked tirelessly advertising the event, and Kerry Hagler of Gateway College dropped everything to create a film of flood damage for presentation. Last, but certainly not least, we applaud Wayne Levy for donat-ing his time and substantial talents to the entertainment, and for bringing along with him a first-class group of musicians who brought the house down ith their jazzy soul! Through the generous monetary donations and selfless efforts of individuals, organiza-tions, and businesses both with-in and outside our community, Three Rivers Rain Relief has now delivered approximately $25,000 to Catholic Charities, who is distributing 100 percent of these funds to flood victims. Recognizing that the need is great and the recovery period is ongoing, we gratefully continue to accept monetary donations from those who want to join this effort to help our neighbors.Debbie Griffin, Cindy Thomas and Teresa MorganThree Rivers Rain Relief organizers We built our business I have heard the presidents statement about the self employed and small business not being built alone. I do agree and want to thank those that helped. First, thanks for associates and brokers that worked with us and sold our products to start an income. Second, thanks to the people in the local communi-ties that purchased the products that have helped them and their families.

W e listened with interest Wednesday as members of the county Economic Development Advisory Board narrowed their focus for economic develop-ment to four main areas: Bell Road, Ellisville, Highway 47 and the Intermodal site, also known as the Catalyst site. Good choices all.Whats better is knowing that were not putting all our eggs in one economic basket, namely the RACEC Catalyst site. We remain enthusiastic over the future of that proj-ect, and fully committed to its success. However, its not the only game in town, nor was meant to be. As EDAB member Terry Dicks noted at Wednesdays meeting, Now were fishing with three big hooks. And thats in addition to Catalyst. Good job, EDAB, on staying focused on the future and keeping our economic opportunities diverse and wide-ranging. But nows not the time to stop and pat ourselves on the back. Lets stay focused on the task at hand and see all these projects through to completion as well as those not yet conceived. The future may end up looking brighter sooner than wed thought. T he current hate campaign being waged by homo-sexual activists against fast food chain Chick-fil-A, because of the firms Christian values, may well turn out to be a bridge too far. The effort may prove to be a set-back for homosexual activism. The vile attacks on the firm and its owners, the Cathy family, should make clear, finally, that the gay rights movement is not about refining and advanc-ing American freedom, but about rewriting American values and advancing, not freedom, but the homosexual political agenda. Recently Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton spoke at a flag raising ceremony in Alexandria, Egypt, noting the re-opening of the American con-sulate there. ... to us, real democracy means that every citizen has the right to live, work and worship as they choose, whether they are man or woman, Muslim or Christian, or from any other background. Perhaps Clinton should be lecturing Americans instead of Egyptians. Can it really be that in America today a businessman can be labeled a bigot, boycot-ted and cut off by suppliers because of the crime of being a Christian? When Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy made his now famous incendiary admission that we are very much supportive of the family -the biblical definition of the family unit, he was not pontificating. He was respond-ing in an interview done in a paper I expect is not read by many homosexuals -the Baptist Press. Chick-fil-As values are not Chicagos values, said Chicago Mayor, and former chief of staff to President Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel. Emanuel defended Chicago Alderman Joe Morenos threat to deny Chick-fil-A permitting in Chicago because its owner supports tra-ditional marriage and family. But UCLA law professor and constitutional scholar Eugene Volokh points out in his blog that denying a private business permits because of such speech by its owner is a blatant First Amendment violation. The Constitution? The First Amendment? Religious liberty? Do these apply to Christians? The fact that there is no evidence that Chick-fil-A discrimi-nates in its business practices did not deter Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank from writing that Dan Cathys support of traditional marriage implied that gay people (not to mention divorced people) had no busi-ness eating at Chick-fil-A. Of course, society must embrace civility, respect and tolerance. But this doesnt mean that the sexual proclivities of some should provide license to rewrite our language and the traditions that define our faith and virtue. Hopefully many will respond to Mike Huckabees appeal to patronize Chick-fil-A on Aug. 1 as a display of support for tradi-tional Christian values and as a reminder that our Constitution protects religious freedom. Have we really gotten to the point where being a Christian is considered un-American? Todd Wilsontwilson@lakecityreporter.com Q Todd Wilson is publisher of the Lake City Reporter. Is it acrimeto be aChristian? HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY On July 29, 1914, transcontinental telephone service in the U.S. began with the first test phone conversation between New York and San Francisco.

information officer. Over the past several years, weve seen it here and there. Well have a counterfeit bill that comes through, but I believe the last report that is in our office system was around April. Right now this is really concentrated to the city of Lake City. Now, weve had a couple of bills that have actually flowed over from Live Oak from First Federal. They caught it there with their check system and reported it Thursday. Strickland said that on Thursday the department received five calls report ing counterfeit bills. Weve never had that many cases all in one day with that influx of money with the $50 and $20 bills that are being presented, he said. Thursday morning, First Federal administrative offices on U.S. Highway 90 called the police depart ment stating they had five counterfeit $20 bills from both the Lake City and Live Oak offices. The funds were detected by their counting machines and due to policy will be turned over directly to the U.S. Department of Treasury; Before lunch Thursday, Winn-Dixie, 800 S. Marion St., employees reported the store had three coun terfeit $20 bills in its cash till. There is no suspect; 2:23 p.m. Thursday at Walmart, 2767 W. U.S. Highway 90, an employee called to report 10 coun terfeit $50 bills were part of a single transaction that took place Sunday, July 22 around 6 p.m. An unknown black man wearing black shoes, black shorts and an orange colored T-shirt, purchased a case of Ensure with a $20 bill and then used the counterfeit $50 bills to purchase a $500 Walmart gift card. The man is described as being approximately five feet, nine inches tall to five feet, ten inches tall with a muscular build, shaved head and a goatee. He was last seen exiting the store into the parking lot and getting into a newer model, white four-door Nissan that was circling in the parking lot during the transaction. Authorities reported the suspect acted nervous dur ing the entire transaction and kept checking over his shoulder as he exited the store and when approach ing the vehicle; At the close of busi ness Thursday, employees of Dominos Pizza, 2372 W. U.S. Highway 90, report ed that on two previous evenings, July 25 and July 26, two separate deliveries were made to the Cedar Park Apartment Complex and payments were made with counterfeit currency. On July 25, a delivery was made and payment was ten dered with two counterfeit $20 bills and on the next night, payment was given for an order with a counter feit $50 bill. On Wednesday authori ties initially reported 10 local businesses called and reported customers passing or attempting to pass the fake bills. Friday afternoon only one inci dent of counterfeit money was reported to the police department by 5 p.m. Strickland said a custom er at a local hotel presented a $50 bill to a clerk and asked her to check the note and her check revealed it was a counterfeit bill. The clerk gave the bill back to the customer and he left the establishment. Strickland said someone appears to be trying to offload a large amount of counterfeit currency in a short period of time. The person that is creat ing these bills is just try ing to get this money out there, he said. Hes taking his counterfeit money and transferring it into legiti mate funds. Its a pretty elite system of money laun dering with the originals being counterfeit bills. Authorities are uncertain whether someone is pur Doris R.

Page Editor: Rick Burnham, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY JULY 29, 2012 7A 7A North Florida agricultural producers care about the environmental integrity of the natural resources they manage. Twenty-two of them were recognized for their environmental stewardship at the 12th Annual County Alliance for Responsible Environmental Stewardship (CARES) dinner on July 24. A number of Columbia County farms were among those recognized at the dinner, including the Willis Family Farm and the Ricky Philpot Farm. The CARES farmers were recognized and congratu lated by Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and Florida Farm Bureau President John Hoblick at the UF/IFAS Suwannee Valley Agriculture Extension Center in Live Oak. Don Quincey, Suwannee River Water Management District Governing Board Chairman, and Herschel T. Vinyard Jr., Secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, were among the dignitaries who attended and spoke at the event. The Florida Farm Bureau and the Suwannee River Partnership (SRP) created CARES to bring agricultural associations, public agencies and institutions, and farmers together to increase environ mental awareness on farms. Through the program, farm ers voluntarily implement conservation best manage ment practices (BMPs) designed to protect and save water. Other honorees and the counties in which their oper ations are located included: The Holly Factory (Alachua), Hitchcock and Sons, Inc. Santa Fe River Ranch (Alachua), Boyd Farm (Alachua), Dyal Family Farm (Bradford), Smith Farms of Bell Inc. (Gilchrist),Hugh and Jan Hunter Farm (Hamilton), Murphy Brothers Farm (Hamilton), Walker and Sons Farm Inc. (Jefferson), Jody and Laura Land Farm (Lafayette), L&H Family Farm (Madison), Jimmy Harris and Sons Farms (Madison), Windy Hill Farm (Madison), Howard and Doreen Curtis Farm (Madison), Margie Foust McLeod Ranch (Madison), Ben and Katherine Harris Ranch (Madison), Brett and Christy Lameier Ranch (Madison), Jimmy and Hilda Dixon Farm (Madison), Red Oak Ranch (Madison), Washington Family Farm (Madison), and the Sheriffs Boys Ranch (Suwannee). Farmers who imple ment BMPs through the SRP, which administers the CARES program in the Suwannee and Santa Fe river basins, save an esti mated 1 billion gallons of water annually and achieve a nitrogen reduction of 3,250 tons per year. The SRP has set aside about $365,000 for cost share programs for irrigation system retrofits and other waterand fertil izer-efficient equipment and techniques for fiscal year 2012-2013. Through the use of advanced technology and environmental practices, farmers are conserving groundwater and reducing nutrient loading in our riv ers, streams and springs, and at the same time main taining their profitability, said SRP Coordinator Hugh Thomas. Some of these technolo gies and practices include: n Retrofitting center pivot irrigation systems with lowpressure, low-volume noz zles to increase irrigation efficiency and decrease water use. n Irrigation management practices, such as irrigation scheduling and soil mois ture testing, to ensure that farmers know how much and when to apply irriga tion based on crop and soil needs. n Using fertigation sys tems to reduce the amount of fertilizer applied during a single application and provide for a more uniform application of fertilizer to improve the application effi ciency. n Fitting tractors with GPS mapping technology that targets fertilizer and chemicals to crops, thus pre venting application of excess nutrients to surrounding soil. n Nutrient management plans for proper handling of animal wastes and fertiliz ers. Farmers in the CARES program participate in a State of Florida BMP pro gram. Participating agencies help the farmer select and implement farm plans which include nutrient and irriga tion management. To main tain CARES status farmers must continue to operate and maintain conservation practices over time. Since its inception in 2001, the CARES program has recognized more than 500 farmers and ranchers state wide for implementing these practices.

Were still trying to piece together who all is involved and how its get ting into our community, Strickland said. Police reports have indi cated several people have passed or attempted to pass counterfeit bills in the past few days. Authorities do not know whether there is any connection among the people who have had the fake currency. Its a diverse population of people who have the bills right now, so were still try ing to investigate and work with our sources to find out who is the lead person thats leaking this stuff into the community, Strickland said. Lake City Police Department Sgt. Investigator Paul Kash is the lead investigator on the case and is working with the Columbia County Sheriffs Office and feder al agents from the Secret Service. Having a batch of bills together, he turned those bills over to the Secret Service so we can try to track it and make sure its not something thats just isolated here, Strickland said. It could be some thing thats regional. Were just putting all resources out and trying to figure out whats going on. All local business own ers are urged to take a few basic steps in safeguarding against being a counterfeit bill victim by: Feel the bill for texture currency is a mixture of paper and fabric; Hold the bill up to the light and look for the water marks/holograms; Look for and at the security strips they should read USA Five, USA TEN, etc. and match whats printed on the front of the note; and Buy and use a coun terfeit ID marker (amber in color = safe currency; while dark brown or black = suspect currency).

Barber is currently playing in his first event as a professional. Golfer looking to make an impact on Web.com Tour By BRANDON FINLEY email@example.com With an All-American year behind him, Lake City golfer Blayne Barber has decided to take his talents to the professional level. Barber begins his profes sional aspirations this week on the Web.com tour during the Nationwide Childrens Hospital Invitational. The tournament is being played on a course thats familiar to Barber, as Ohio States home course the famed Scarlet Course serves as host on the Buckeyes campus. I had this invitation and coming off an All-American season, I felt it was time, Barber said Friday morn ing. Barber got off to a hot start during his profession al career with a birdie on his first hole. He finished the round at 2 under par with the ultimate goal of finishing in the top 25 so that he can continue to play on the Web.com Tour next week. As far as the nerves in his first round, Barber said it was just another day on the greens. I actually felt comfort able, Barber said. In the end, its still golf. Im still out there trying to get the ball in the hole in as few shots as possible. Barber isnt setting many goals and playing with a take-it-as-it-comes mental ity. Right now Im standing about 14th, Barber said Friday morning. Id like to finish in the top 25 to play again next week. Barber shot a 71 in the second round and made the cut with a stroke to spare. Barber will have to par ticipate in qualifying school during the first week of September after joining the Web.com Tour so late in the season. A remarkable run could see him gain a card through the tour, but Barber has backup plans as well. Right now Im signed up to play in an E-golf event next week, which is a small tour that plays most of their events in the Carolinas, he said. Ive got quite a few tournaments scheduled. I could gain my card by fin ishing in the top 25, but joining this late in the year itd be tough but doable. So far Barber hasnt been shell-shocked by the differ ence in competition level. These guys have just been out here doing it a long time, he said. Still, I feel like Im good enough to compete at this level. He said that the course being on a college even plays like hes used to. I havent really BARBER continued on 6B

Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER OLYMPICS SUNDAY, JULY 29, 2012 3B%632576 Opening ceremony gives Olympics a rocking start ASSOCIATED PRESSThe Olympic flag is shown during the Opening Ceremony at the 2012 Summer Olympics, on Friday, in London. Bond, Beatles, Rolling Stones highlight eventBy JOHN LEICESTER and ERIN McCLAMAssociated PressLONDON Shaken and stirred. James Bond and the queen teamed to give London a wild Olympic opening like no other. And creative genius Danny Boyle turned Olympic Stadium into a jukebox, cranking up world-beating rock from the Beatles, the Stones and The Who to send the planet a message: Britain, loud and royal proud, is ready to roll. Now over to you, athletes. It was a brilliant intro-duction to kick off a 17-day festival of sports. Queen Elizabeth II, playing along with movie magic from director Boyle, pro-vided the highlight of the Oscar-winners high-adren-aline show. With film trick-ery, Boyle made it seem as if Britains beloved 86-year-old monarch and its most famous spy parachuted into the stadium together. Daniel Craig as 007, the queen, playing herself, and her royal corgis starred in a short movie filmed in Buckingham Palace. Good evening, Mr. Bond, she said before they were shown flying by helicopter over London landmarks and then leap-ing she in a salmon-col-ored dress, Bond dashing as ever in a black tuxedo into the inky night over Olympic Park. At the same moment, real skydivers appeared as the stadium throbbed to the James Bond theme. And moments after that, the monarch appeared in per-son, accompanied by her husband, Prince Philip. Organizers said it was thought to be the first time she has acted on film. The queen made herself more accessible than ever before, Boyle said. Boyle sprang another giant surprise in giving seven teenage athletes the supreme honor of ignit-ing the Olympic flame. Together, they touched torches to trumpetlike tubes that spread into a ring of fire and then rose elegantly to jointly form the cauldron which organiz-ers said would be moved Sunday night to one end of the stadium. It was the end of the journey for the flame. Some 8,000 torchbearers, mostly unheralded Britons, had carried it on a 70-day, 8,000-mile journey from toe to tip of the British Isles, whip-ping up enthusiasm for a $14 billion Olympics taking place during a severe reces-sion. The final torchbearers were kept a closely guarded secret remarkable given the scrutiny on these, the first Summer Games of the Twitter era. The evening started with fighter jets streaming red, white and blue smoke and roaring over the stadium, packed with a buzzing crowd of 60,000 people, at 8:12 p.m. or 20:12 in the 24-hour time observed by Britons. The show never caught its breath with a nonstop rock-and-pop homage to cool Britannia. The soundtrack veered from classical to irreverent. Boyle daringly included the Sex Pistols Pretty Vacant and a snippet of its version of God Save the Queen an anti-establishment punk anthem once banned by the BBC. With a sing-along of Hey Jude, Beatle Paul McCartney closed the spectacle that ran 45 min-utes beyond its scheduled three hours. The encyclopedic review of modern British music included a 1918 Broadway standard adopted by the West Ham football team, the Rolling Stones (I Cant Get No) Satisfaction and Bohemian Rhapsody, by still another Queen, and other tracks too numerous to mention, but not to dance to. Boyle, who directed Slumdog Millionaire and Trainspotting while devel-oping into one of Britains most successful filmmak-ers, had a ball with his favored medium, mixing filmed passages with live action to hypnotic effect, with 15,000 volunteers tak-ing part in the show.Lochte wins first gold for United StatesBy JAY COHENAssociated PressLONDON Ryan Lochte won the 400-meter individual medley, China collected a couple of gold medals and Australia set an Olympic record while winning the womens 400-meter freestyle relay. Oh, and Michael Phelps went without a medal in an Olympic race for the first time since 2000. It was quite the opening night at the pool. After barely qualifying for the final, Phelps struggled to a fourth-place finish and was denied his 17th career Olympic medal. When it was done, he could barely get out of the pool. Lochte took the gold with a time of 4 minutes, 5.18 seconds. Brazils Thiago Pereira (4:08.86) settled for silver, while Japans Kosuke Hagino (4:08.94) claimed the bronze. I think Im kind of in shock right now, Lochte said. As for his defeated rival Phelps, I know he gave it everything he had. Thats all you can ask for. The womens 400 individual medley went to 16-year-old Ye Shiwen, who set a world record with a time of 4:28.43. It was the third mark to fall since high-tech bodysuits were banned at the end of 2009. American Elizabeth Beisel took silver and Chinas Li Xuanxu grabbed the bronze. Sun Yang flirted with a world record in the mens 400 freestyle. He took gold in 3:40.14, just off the mark of 3:40.07 by Germanys Paul Biedermann in a rub-berized suit three years ago. South Koreas Park Taehwan was the silver medal-ist in 3:42.06, and American Peter Vanderkaay took the bronze in 3:44.69. Australia finished the 400-free relay in 3:33.15, Netherlands won the sil-ver and the Americans got bronze. The U.S. finish was enough to deliver a 12th medal to Natalie Coughlin, who matched Dara Torres and Jenny Thompson for most decorated U.S. female Olympian. Coughlin swam in the morning prelims, but wasnt used in the evening; everyone who swims on a relay gets a medal. After hosting a dazzling opening ceremony Friday night, Britain got off to a shaky start on the first full day of action when favored cycling star Mark Cavendish finished 28th in the road race. Kazakhstans Alexander Vinokourov, who has said he will retire from cycling after the games, won gold. Rigoberto Uran of Colombia took silver, and Alexander Kristoff of Norway won a mass sprint for the bronze. The guys all sat there in the tent absolutely spent. We did everything we could, Cavendish said afterward. We didnt expect any help. We rode the race we wanted to ride. Wimbledon champions Roger Federer and Serena Williams each won their opening matches one struggled, one didnt. Federer, a four-time Olympian, overcame a jittery patch and beat Alejandro Falla of Colombia 6-3, 5-7, 6-3. The top-ranked Swiss star was a point from victory in the second set, then lost three of his next four service games. But he recovered in time to avoid the upset. U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama watched from the front row of Williams box as the fourth-seeded American beat former No. 1 Jelena Jankovic of Serbia 6-3, 6-1 on Centre Court. Fresh from her star turn as the latest Bond Girl, Queen Elizabeth II returned to Olympic Park for an encore.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, JULY 29, 2012 Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420%6SRUWVTebowmania takes over New YorkBy BARRY WILNERAssociated PressCORTLAND, N.Y. Tebowmania nearly got rained out. The expected wild scene as Jets fans descended on this central New York col-lege town for the teams first public practice was tamed by the elements Saturday. Except for scat-tered cheers and a handful of hecklers shouting com-ments about the popular backup quarterbacks pen-chant for holding the ball too long before throwing, it was a relatively uneventful session. Although the sight of a thoroughly soaked Tim Tebow jogging bare-chest-ed through the deluge after practice might have excited more than a few folks. It even left coach Rex Ryan somewhat speechless. Dont know if Im there yet, Ryan said of casting off his shirt, too, even if he has lost 100 pounds. The wet conditions seemed to cut down not only on the fans enthusi-asm, but on the number of banners on display. One man wore a green and white shirt with Mark 6:15 Thou Shalt Have Only One Quarterback printed on the front. Real scripture? Not quite. Mark would be Sanchez, the incumbent QB and the guy who wears the No. 6 jer-sey to Tebows 15. The fan in the shirt, Todd Harmon of Buffalo a tough place to be a Jets fan, he admit-ted made the three-hour drive to support Sanchez, but also to observe Tebow. I think having him here will help Mark push through and will motivate Mark, Harmon said. Hes never had someone pushing him. True enough. And from what everyone has seen from the fourth-year pro early in camp, he is responding. Sanchez has looked sharp, throwing darting spirals and hitting his targets in stride. Even in a downpour.Mark can spin it in any conditions, Ryan said. As for Tebow, well, as one impatient observer shouted from the grandstand as the rain pelted down: Throw it, Tebow! And when he connected with a receiver, the same fan added: Wow, you completed one! After a wobbly toss, another fan shouted: Thats a Tebow ball! Yes, the natives seemed restless. That doesnt mean they are losing faith in Tebow, whose enormous national following has made him a lightning rod wherever he has played. Give everyone a sunny day and a few pre-cise passes from the left-hander and joy will reign in Cortland. On this day, a few Tebow passes sailed over the intended receivers, and a simple 8-yard throw to run-ning back Shonn Greene had plenty of wobble in it. Ryan even joked about the negative comments, That was some of the defensive guys just kidding. One young lady held up a banner promising better times: A Season To Believe Lets Go Jets. The ban-ner featured photos of Tebow and Greene. Julio Ramos drove four hours from Lancaster, Pa., to see practice, spe-cifically focusing on Tebow. Ramos draped his No. 15 green jersey over a fence and watched intently when Tebow and Sanchez did a drill together in which they take turns as passer and receiver on screen passes. Like almost everybody else, he winced when Tebow took forever to spot a sec-ondary receiver in another drill, and when linebacker Aaron Maybin broke in for what would have been a sack. Ramos didnt follow Tebow when he was win-ning a Heisman Trophy with the Florida Gators, but became interested in the quarterback while Tebow was a Bronco. Much more than Tebows playing style captivated Ramos. I read his bio about the beautiful things hes doing and I was moved by that, Ramos said. He stands firm for what he believes in, and he has a fire to win that is contagious. A longtime Jets fan, Ramos was excited enough by the acquisition of Tebow to buy the jersey his only Jets jersey. Its awesome to see him as a Jet, Ramos said just before the river of rain hit. When I heard he was becoming a Jet, I was excited and, in a way, concerned. Theres all the drama issues and I won-dered how he would handle that in New York. But I think hes going to make a difference. Certainly in merchandising he will. Not only has Tebow paraphernalia been among the biggest sellers in the NFL, but among ath-letes in all sports. Certainly in attention he will. More than 50 media members showed up for the opening of training camp, far more than the Giants the Super Bowl cham-pion Giants who share the same home stadium with the Jets drew in Albany about two hours away from Cortland. The lovefest, or whatever else is in store for Tebow and the Jets, didnt erupt on the first day of training camp. Mother Nature made sure of that. Consider it a brief respite in Tebowmania.

ASSOCIATED PRESSUnited States Michael Phelps exits the pool after placing fourth in the mens 400-meter individual medley swimming final at the Aquatics Centre in the Olympic Park during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, on Saturday.Phelps proves to be humanBy TIM DAHLBERGAssociated PressLONDON The crowd at the Olympic Aquatics Centre arrived late, as if they were trying to stall off the inevitable. Anyone with a prized ticket to the first big showdown of the London Games had to know Michael Phelps was in trouble earlier in the day when he barely qualified for the final of the event he owns two gold medals in. That was a shocker, but what happened Saturday night in the Olympic pool was simply mystifying. No self-respecting London bookie would have even dared to lay odds that the greatest swimmer in the world no, make that the greatest swimmer ever wouldnt even win as much as a bronze medal in his first race in these games. The great swimming showdown to open the Olympics was a giant bust unless, of course, your name is Ryan Lochte. The surfer dude from Florida dominated the 400-meter individual medley from the opening stroke, making an early case for himself as the face of swimming in these games while thrash-ing a guy he never used to be able to beat. And in the process, Lochte may have shattered the Phelps mystique once and for all. Untouchable in Beijing. Oh, so human in London. This wasnt just a loss, it was a blowout. By the time Phelps finally touched the wall in fourth place, Lochte had been resting there for more than 4 seconds an eternity in swimming. What followed next was almost as revealing. While Lochte celebrated, Phelps climbed slowly from the pool, like it was a chore just to make it out. He then trudged off to answer a few questions from reporters and try to figure out where it all went wrong. Worn out already, and six races still to go. It was just a crappy race, Phelps said by way of explanation I felt fine the first 200, then I dont know. Not surprising, if only because the athlete is always the last one to know. At age 27 Phelps has a lot of mileage under his long arms, a lot of history to have to live up to. Hes been swimming for medals since the 2000 Olympics in Sydney and seemed almost giddy when he tweeted on Friday that he had finished his last practice as a com-petitive swimmer. Maybe he didnt have the fire inside for train-ing. Maybe hes starting to slow just a bit from the wear and tear. Or maybe he just had what he claims he had a bad day. Lochte would be among those interested in find-ing out. He once lost 17 straight races in the 200-meter individual medley to Phelps, and the two meet Wednesday in that race in their only other confronta-tion in the games. Ill tell you what, its weird. Its weird not hav-ing Michael next to me on the medal stand, Lochte said. Michael to me is still one of the worlds greatest ... and no mat-ter what happens hell go down as one of the worlds greatest. Jags Session expects long-term effects from concussions last seasonBy MARK LONGAssociated PressJACKSONVILLE Jacksonville Jaguars line-backer Clint Session is pre-paring for the worst. After sustaining three concussions last season including two in the same game and spending the last seven months recover-ing from them, Session said Saturday that its probably too late for him to avoid long-term effects associ-ated with head trauma. I think that is probably something that is already probably going to happen, Session said. I cant con-trol that. Probably too late for that right there. Session had three concussions in 2011, the first in the preseason and then two more against Cleveland on Nov. 20. He stayed in the game after the first one against the Browns and didnt tell team doctors. He was placed on injured reserve two days later. I kind of knew it was pretty serious, but I just figured, I wanted to win, Session said. It was a big game. We want-ed to win the game. I wanted to contribute. I didnt want to just leave the game. I ended up getting another one. I couldnt stand anymore, the trauma, so I went on out of the game. Session reported to training camp Thursday with most of his teammates running back Maurice Jones-Drew and first-round draft pick Justin Blackmon are holding out but hasnt been on the field. He declined to offer specifics about his recurring post-concussion symptoms but later said hes trying to manage not getting head-aches. He is seeing two concussion specialists, one in Jacksonville and another in Pittsburgh, and has been doing mind exercises. Theyre doing their best to make sure they weigh out all the options so they dont send me back too soon or I dont try to come back too soon, Session said. I think everybody is doing a great part on trying to get me back to where I need to be. I think Im doing my best, too. Session is well versed on the concussion issue sweep-ing the NFL, including read-ing up on recent deaths of former NFL players Junior Seau, Ray Easterling and Dave Duerson. Looking back, Session regrets staying in the game at Cleveland but only because it caused him to miss the rest of the season and the entire offseason.
By CHRIS JENKINSAssociated PressINDIANAPOLIS Denny Hamlin figures this weekend is when NASCARs real champion-ship contenders begin to separate themselves from the pack. He thinks hes part of that group and hes off to a pretty good start. Hamlin won pole position for the Brickyard 400 on Saturday, turning a lap of 182.763 mph in qualifying. And with a good run in the race today, Hamlin figures he can rev up his push for a title. This is the turning point of the season, Hamlin said. We feel like from Indy to Richmond is when youre going to start to see whos going to fight for a cham-pionship. Everyone has got their Chase cars pre-pared, bringing them to the racetrack, starting to tune on them, and thats when you want to start running good. Its the 11th pole of Hamlins career and his sec-ond this season. Hamlin also won the pole at California. Hamlins best finish in six career Brickyard starts is third in 2008. Coming into this weekend, he had never started higher than 10th at the historic 2.5-mile oval. I feel like when we come here, we can win every single time, Hamlin said. You ask me that about a couple other tracks, I would say no. Carl Edwards qualified second in his first race week-end with new crew chief Chad Norris, followed by Joey Logano, Aric Almirola and Greg Biffle. Jimmie Johnson qualified sixth, holding on to a wildly loose car. NASCAR officials disallowed the qualifying time of Michael McDowell after a post-qualifying inspection found that the nitrogen gas in a rear shock absorber on the No. 98 car exceeded the allowable pressure. The No. 19 car driven by Mike Bliss made the race instead.Sadler penalty hands Indy win to KeselowskiINDIANAPOLIS Brad Keselowski took the lead when Elliott Sadler was penalized for jumping a late restart, then held on to win Saturday in a con-troversial finish to the first NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Sadler passed Keselowski on a restart with 18 laps to go, but officials ruled that Sadler went too early and black-flagged him. Sadler stayed on the track for sev-eral laps, apparently hoping officials would reconsider the penalty, before finally coming in with 12 laps to go and giving up the lead to Keselowski.

All that I could stomach A fter 33 wings in less than a half hour I have a new respect for the world of competitive eating. A few months back I watched as a friend of mine tried one of the crazy food challenges that pop up all over this country. We are both fans of the show Man vs. Food and it was time for him to battle the gut-busting challenge. All he had to do was down 50 wings, two orders of fries and 64 ounces of cool liquid in a 45-minute period. We are both big guys and have been known to kill a few buffets in our time. Hes even gained the nickname All-U-Can-Owen over the years. We thought of him as the perfect competitor to be the first to take down the Chubby Challenge at Mr. Chubbys Wings located in Jacksonville. No man had yet to conquer the challenge, but with a nickname such as All-U-Can-Owen, who better to be the first to beat the Chubby Challenge. Sadly, we were both disappointed with the outcome. Owen only made it 22 wings in before hitting the food wall something that most competitive eaters suffer and he eventually lost the challenge in poor fashion. Disgruntled by his lack of effort, I gave myself a few weeks of preparation before deciding to indulge in the challenge myself. I am no Joey Chesnut, but Ive been known to put away some hot wings in my time. I felt going in that my strategy would perfect the challenge. Early in the day I went through my normal Saturday morning sparring session. This is a good way to work up some hunger and burn calories. By the time we had finished sparring at 1 p.m., my hunger was beginning to build. I let it slowly creep toward starving proportions throughout the day hoping to create enough room to scruff down the challenge and have my name remembered throughout eternity or at least as long as Mr. Chubbys Wings keeps its doors open. It was 10 p.m. when the challenge started. My hunger was overwhelming me. The biggest fear I had was filling up too early from lack of an appetizer throughout the day, but I was able to overcome the early food wall. The first minute went well. I was able to delve through four wings in the opening 60 seconds. Two minutes go by. Eight wings are devoured. After three minutes, I had reached double digits. This challenge was going to be a piece of cake or a few chickens. After about five minutes, I was close to reaching 20 wings. Thats when things started slowing down. More than 15 minutes went by and the pace was slowing down to turtles pace. After 20 minutes, my worst fears were being realized. I had hit the food wall. All-U-Can-Owen made it to 22 wings and there was no way I could let him outshine me. I hammered through 25 wings for good measure, but with more than 10 of my closest friends there to cheer me on, I wasnt in the business of giving up. I pounded a few more wings. I was nearing 30 minutes and nearing 30 wings. Thats when the food wall hit me like a car running into a brick wall. There was no moving forward, but I kept trying. I consumed the 31st wing, then 32 and 33. And then I threw in the towel or napkin in this case. It was all I could stomach.

On rain-softened greens that took the bite out of Hamilton Golf & Country Club, Garrigus used his power and some timely putts Saturday for a 6-under 64 that gave him a one-shot lead over William McGirt, who lost ground with a 66.

Annu als to plant now include celosia, torenia, ornamental pepper and coleus. Coleuses are very easy to grow in North Florida. Coleus used to be a plant just for shady areas. But new cultivars have been developed that thrive in full sun. Coleuses are admired for their beauti ful colored foliage ranging all the way from bright yellow to pink and purple. Many have very interesting ruffled leaves, spots, dots, and other stunning color variations. Real attention getters in the garden!

Instead of texting on the telephone most of the day, she helped senior citi zens exercise; instead of cruising on the boulevard, she helped prepare meals for local seniors. In addition to working with seniors, McGlashan also worked on develop ing job skills, building up her self-esteem and confidence and learned about making the transi tion from being a visually impaired high school stu dent to becoming an adult with a variety of job skills and opportunities. McGlashan is legally blind and her vision prob lems include glaucoma, cataracts, stygmatisms and anaridea. For the past few weeks she has participated in the Florida Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired Summer Transition pro gram. The program is a sixweek day camp that began June 25 and concludes Aug. 3. The program is funded by the Department of Blind Services and is designed to teach stu dents the skills needed to transition to independent living, how to get a job or how to go to college. Its my second year in the program and Im lik ing it pretty good, said McGlashan, a Columbia High School student. We learn how to cook, clean, work, complete job appli cations and resumes. Although shes legally blind, McGlashan said she enjoys working with the seniors at the Lifestyle Enrichment Center. McGlashan worked at the center for four weeks, where she helped in the arts and crafts room assisting clients with painting and making jew elry. She also worked in the cafeteria filling cups with ice, passing out pitch ers of tea and water and helping serve lunch to the seniors. Its fun, she said. I did this last year, too. I enjoy making people laugh, so it makes me feel good. Mary Ann Hastings, Division of Blind Services senior rehabilitation spe cialist, said the Division of Blind Services sponsors the transition program for the visually-impaired stu dents. The Florida Center for the Blinds Summer Transition Program for Blind Teenagers is in its third year. There are cur rently 12 students in the program in this region of the state. The objective of the program is to expose the students to work, work values, work protocol, how to dress, how to inter act with problem solving for jobs, she said. The transition program also focuses on teaching the students vocational, social and recreational skills. Through the pro gram the students learn self-advocacy, daily living skills and job skills. The program also has a com ponent where the students are placed in various jobs JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Taylor McGlashan keeps Belinda Kennedy (from left), Betty Brantley and Judy Adams company as they do arts and crafts Wednesday at the LifeStyle Enrichment Center.

Pineapple Splash has interesting bright yellow leaves splashed with dark red streaks. Newer UF Proven Winner varieties that will be available in the near future are Alligator Tears, Keystone Kopper and Marooned. Coleuses will not live outside through our North Florida winters, but you can easily take cuttings and start new plants to bed out in the spring. Cut a four to six inch shoot off of a growing branch. Remove the leaves from the lower half of the cutting. The cuttings can be rooted in a vase with two inches of water, or they can be inserted into an evenly moist potting medium. Keep the cutting medium moist and in a few weeks there will be enough root mass to pot the plants or bed them out. These colorful plants will thrive in slightly acidic soil which is kept evenly moist. They should be fed regularly with any bal anced bedding plant fertil izer. Remove the growing tips to encourage the plant to bush out with more lateral branches. The flow ers are not an ornamental feature, so keep them pinched off so energy will go into leaf formation. And you still have time to prepare that worn-out spring vegetable garden for fall planting. By solar izing the soil now, you can kill insects, weed seeds, pathogens and nematodes. It will give you a great head start on grow ing that great fall crop of vegetables.

PLANTS: Still time to prep for fall Continued From Page 1D By Troy Roberts Public Information Coordinator, Florida Gateway College This is a col umn about Jim Morris. This means that, if Jim were alive today to read it, hed hate this column. Jim was never an attention seeker he never wanted acco lades or recognition, preferring to share it with those he worked with, often times giving credit to others when it was actually he who had done a majority of the legwork. So, obviously, he wouldnt enjoy reading an article that was completely about him. But everyone should have the opportunity to know some one like Jim. Florida Gateway College will definitely miss its favorite librarian. As I sit here Thursday morn ing, just hours after hearing about Jims death, I try to think of happier times, before the cancer, before his body began to fail him. Jim had a way of mak ing people feel better his laugh and smile both were infectious, and a few minutes with him could quickly bring you of the doldrums. I believe Jim made a posi tive impact on everyone he worked with throughout his 20-plus years at Florida Gateway College, he has shared millions of memories with his co-work ers, most of whom he consid ered friends. Its these people who can tell you who Jim Morris is their words are much more powerful than anything I can type. So Ill let them. I had two nicknames for Jim The Weasel and Pops. He earned the name The Weasel because he always seemed to weasel his way into anything that was fun or exciting. His abil ity to do that quickly turned into Pops because I saw so many qualities in him that I admired. People liked or appreciated everything about Jim. And ulti mately, thats why they wanted to do stuff with him they genuinely enjoyed being around him. He was just a happy, care free, compassionate, fun guy to be around. Rob Chapman, Graphics Coordinator He was my best friend, my friend for more than 20 years. He was the best man in my wed ding, I was the best man in his wedding. I dont know of any other man Ive ever met who was kinder than Jim Morris thats probably the best word I can use to describe him. He was a mentor to a lot of people if they had problems he was like a substitute father figure to me. If I had a problem, he was my voice of reason when I wasnt thinking straight. And he was a very good listener if you were talking to him, hed look at you and youd know he was listen ing; his attention was completely on you when you were talking to him. It wasnt fake, he meant it. He loved his daughters you could tell that his daughters were his life. He lit up when they were around. He was a very dedicated daddy. And Ive never seen him happier than he was when he and Patty got married. Hed been single for a number of years and was kind of lost, but Patty gave him direction, she gave him a purpose. Anthony Free, AV Telecommunications Specialist A lot of my memories of Jim are just the conversations we had. Were both on different sides of the political spectrum, but we respected each others opinions, and before work wed sit around and talk about the current politics of the day. I miss that Ive missed that for the last seven months. Hes just been a true friend, probably my best friend, and the nicest guy hed do anything for anyone. He was involved in charities, health and human service orga nizations, and he just was a very thoughtful person of people, he loved people. Not only did I lose a true friend and colleague, but the college lost a wonderful employee and the community lost someone who really meant a lot to them. Mike McKee, Executive Director of Media and Public Information I like to think of how much respect he had for everybody and consideration, especially the students. He was considerate to them to a fault. He wanted everyone to be comfortable, everyone to be happy in the library. He just strived for that. And when he did have to make people be quiet, hed always come in and ask, Do you think I was being mean? As a boss, you couldnt ask for a better boss. He was always respectful to us, and by his example, he made sure we felt the same we did about the students, to go above and beyond to help them. Lynnda White, Library Technician I The things I will remember most about Jim are his abso lutely unerring willingness to help anybody with anything, no matter what, and his love of the written word. Books were his life. And even though a lot of us didnt understand what he said when he talked about books, because Marcel Proust was his favorite author, and we couldnt understand a word he wrote, we would constantly make fun of him for his very esoteric viewpoint of books. But it made him who he was, and he was just the best boss any body could ever possibly have. Christine Boatright, Coordinator of Library Research Ive known him for 27 years, and what I think I will remember the most about him is that he treated everyone like they were his friend. It didnt matter what your walk of life was, or what your position at the college was, and I think thats why people respected him as much as they did. Jim was my boss but he was also my friend and I considered him like a brother. He was good to me and made my career there very enjoyable. Thats one of the reasons Im still there he just had a lot of respect for you, and appreciated whatever you did for him. Its going to be a great loss, not only to the college, but to the community as well.

The job coach helps students address issues they may encounter in the work place, as it relates to the type of vision impairment the student has, which has been a barrier to the students employment. We want to expose the students to work and also give them the idea that just because they have a visual impairment or theyre blind, it doesnt mean they cant work and pursue their dreams, Hastings said. We pro-vide all kinds of adaptive equipment and technology in order to help them do that. Pamela Parks, a Richardson Middle School teacher, is McGlashans job coach, in accordance with the program. I adore working with Taylor, she said. This is my third year in the program and normally we work in Ocala with the kids and job coach them there, but this year they decided to find jobs for the kids in their home towns and Taylor and I both live in Lake City. Taylor, half the time, she doesnt need a job coach. Shes just awesome. Shes very adaptable to any situation and she follows directions. My job is really easy. McGlashan is the only Columbia County student taking part in the program. Parks said shes proud that McGlashan was able to participate in the program that benefits her as well as seniors in the community. Its very humbling, she said. Its very humbling working each day with these kids. The seniors just look forward to Taylor coming. She stops and speaks to them, she remembers them and she helps them do things. A lot of them (seniors) dont have their children close by or their grandchildren, so Taylor is kind of like that for them. Its been a wonderful experience. Last summer McGlashan worked in Ocala during the program. She said her favorite part of the program is going on field trips. This week McGlashan is scheduled to visit the Tom Resnick Park in Ormond Beach and the Conklin Center in Daytona Beach.

TEEN: Summer program helps local legally blind teen devel op job skills Continued From Page 1D By CANDICE CHOIAP Food Industry WriterNEW YORK Coke and Pepsi are chasing after the sweet spot: a soda with no calories, no artificial sweeteners and no funny aftertaste. The worlds top soft drink companies hope thats the elusive trifecta that will silence health concerns about soda and reverse the decline in consumption of car-bonated drinks. But such a formula could be years away. Thats because the ingredient that makes soda taste good is also what packs on the pounds: high-fructose corn syrup. Artificial sweeteners like aspartame that are used in diet drinks dont have any cal-ories but are seen as processed and fake. Natural sweeteners that come from plants present the most promising alternative, but companies havent yet figured out how to mask their metallic aftertaste. Despite the complexities, soft drink makers push on in their search. I cant say when it will be here, but its in the reasonable future, said Al Carey, who heads the beverage unit for the Americas at PepsiCo Inc., the worlds No. 2 soda maker. Theres good reason that soft drink makers are so eager to tweak their formu-las. Once a beloved American treat, sodas are now being blamed for the nations bulging waistlines two-thirds of the countrys adults are overweight or obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That, coupled with the growing variety of flavored waters and sports drinks, has sent per capita soda consumption down 17 percent to about 1.3 cans a day since its peak in 1998, according to data from Beverage Digest, an industry tracker. In New York City, a ban on the sale of sugary drinks bigger than 16 ounces in restaurants, theaters and stadiums could take effect as early as March. The mayor of Cambridge, Mass., proposed a similar ban last month. And in Richmond, Calif., voters will decide in November whether to pass the nations first penny-per-ounce tax on soda and other sugary drinks such as fruit juices and teas. Aspartame, the artificial sweetener commonly used in drinks such as Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi, doesnt have any calories. But some drinkers worry about the fact that the sweeteners are not natu-ral. Public perception has been colored by past studies that have suggested it caused cancer and brain tumors in rats even though The American Cancer Society says theres no evidence showing it has any link with an increased risk for cancer in adults. The concerns have led soft drink companies to search for natural, zero-calorie sweeteners, including stevia, which is derived from a South American shrub. Natural sweeteners have neither the calo-ries of sugar nor the negative associations of artificial sweeteners. The trick, how-ever, is figuring out how to make them taste good in colas. Every sweetener has its own notes that need to be mixed with other flavors, said Mehmood Khan, chief science offi-cer for PepsiCo. Its a bit like an orches-tra playing music, as opposed to one instrument. So far, stevia is the natural sweetener that has gotten the most attention and is already used in Coca-Cola and PepsiCo products, including orange juice and bot-tled teas. But its proving more difficult to hide the aftertaste in colas. Soft drink makers are testing different extracts from the stevia plant that they hope will be easier to blend. Theyre also scouring the world for other naturally occurring sweeteners.

DEAR ABBY: Im a 25-year-old, happily mar-ried woman with a great life. Ever since the birth of my son a little over a year ago, I find myself angry at things that happened in my childhood that I thought I had gotten over. Abby, I was mentally, physically and sexually abused by my father. He has never had to answer for his actions, which of course he denies. My mother was also emotion-ally and verbally abusive, as well as absent. I have a newfound anger toward her, and the hatred for my father has resurfaced. (I have had no contact with him for years.) How do I get over this? I had therapy as a kid and Im looking for other options. -HAVING FLASHBACKS IN MARION, OHIO DEAR HAVING FLASHBACKS: You may be looking for other options, but more coun-seling may be the best option for you. Now that youre a mother yourself, with a daily reminder of how small and fragile a child is, its not surprising youre angry at your par-ents for the way you were treated when you were little and helpless. A licensed psychotherapist can help you work this through in the shortest possible time, so please dont wait to ask for a referral. DEAR ABBY: Less than a year ago, my 28-year-old son, David, married his college sweetheart, Ann. Shes a wonderful girl. They bought a home near her job in the Midwest. David sometimes goes out of state on temporary jobs. He called me a month ago, while on a job in a resort area, and told me he has met someone and wants out of his marriage. He said Ann has been great, they never argue, etc., but he was pressured into the marriage and doesnt really know where his life is going. Ann has called me several times in tears. She said she will give him time, but she is almost ready to give up. I am heartbroken. I think my son is making a terrible mistake, as Ann truly loves him and will do anything for him. I love her like a daughter. I have spoken to David and told him what I think, but I dont know what else to do. There is no good reason for this breakup. How can I help him not to go ahead with this? -VERY SAD MOM IN MARYLAND DEAR MOM: You cant prevent your son from leav-ing the marriage. However, you would do him and Ann a favor to suggest that when his business in the resort area is finished, they seek marriage counseling. David may want out because he met someone or, as he said, he didnt really want to be married in the first place. If theres an upside to this, its that they didnt have children. While the situation is sad and you love your daughter-in-law, do NOT allow yourself to be put in the middle or you will alienate your son. If the marriage doesnt work out, you can still have a rela-tionship with her, although it wont be the one you planned on.
