Giving Lake City a new look for the season By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comD o wntown Lake City will feature more of a fall look in the coming weeks due to a beautification project with the Community Redevelopment Agency and the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce, with lots of help from the Lake City Garden Club. Jackie Kite, Community Redevelopment Agency administrator, said the CRA advi-sory committee had a sub committee with Melinda Moses, Gloria Spivey and Elizabeth Burlingame and in conjunction with the Chamber of Commerce the group devised a fall beautification project. We named it Fall Around Downtown, Kite said. Its a fall decoration contest from Oct. 1 Nov. 16. In an effort to increase exposure to our CRA district all of Marion Avenue downtown businesses from Baya Avenue to Railroad Street are invited to take part in the fall beautification project. Businesses participating in the project are expected to have their store front or lawn decorated for judging by Oct. 15. The winner will be announced at Trunk Or Treat, an annual event sponsored the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce. This years Trunk or Treat event will take place Friday, Oct. 26 in Olustee Park. Help us create a festive downtown tradition is what were asking, Kite said. To help jump-start the project City Hall has been decorated. Also, two vacant properties in downtown have had fall-themed murals painted on their windows by local artist Janet Moses, Kite said. Several women from the Lake City Garden Club spent Friday morning deco-rating the historic welcome gates to the downtown area. Lake City Garden Club members who participated in the decorating efforts were: Rosemary Coleman, Tina Roberts, Jo Ann Torrans, Martha Ann Ronsonet, Genie Norman, Gail Harden and Sandra Foreman. Garden Club member Wanda Toner helped with the silk arrangements in front of the Blanche Hotel, Kite said. Around 9 a.m. Monday, Kite and Abbie Chasteen, chamber of commerce market-ing coordinator, went door-to-door and passed out fliers and registration informa-tion about the fall decoration contest to downtown businesses. Were scheduled to go to the remainder of the businesses on Marion Street from U.S. 90 to Railroad Street today, Kite said. Weve been talking to the business own-ers and encouraging them to participate in this fall beautification project. Id also like to encourage residents of Lake City and Columbia county to come and see the hard work and beautiful fall decor along Marion Avenue. For additional information about the fall decoration contest, contact Kite at (386) 719-5766. Romneyblasts Obamaon Libya By DAVID ESPO andKASIE HUNTAssociated PressPUEBLO, Colo. Mitt Romney led a chorus of Republican criti-cism of the administrations for-eign policy on Monday, accus-ing President Barack Obama of minimizing the recent killing of the U.S. ambassador to Libya as a mere bump in the road rather than part of a chain of events that threatens American interests. White House press secretary Jay Carney called the accusa-tions desperate and offensive as Romney and his allies sought to gain political advantage in the latter stages of a political cam-paign that seems to be trending Obamas way. The president did not comment on the criticism when he and first lady Michelle Obama taped an appearance on ABCs The View that blended the personal with the political. Asked if a Romney presi-dency would be a disaster, Obama said the nation can survive a lot. He added: The American people dont want to just survive, we want to thrive. The back and forth on foreign policy occurred as Romney said he was shifting to a more ener-getic schedule of public campaign events, bidding to reverse recent erosion in battleground state polls. After days spent largely raising campaign cash and try-ing to minimize the fallout from one speech to donors last spring he pledged to make the case for real and positive change. While national polls make the Attack on embassycalled more thanbump in the road.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS AROUND FLORIDA Court, owner fight over big cats LOXAHATCHEE A court fight is under way in Palm Beach County over two tigers and a leopard that belong to a former Tarzan actor. The cats were seized in February by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The agency said Steve Sipek was keeping Class 1 animals without a USDA permit. Since then, Sipek and Melanie Boynes, who lives on the Loxahatchee property with him, set up a non-profit called Tarzans Big Cat Sanctuary. The wildlife agency recently refused the sanc tuarys request for a per mit to own big cats, citing inadequate care, poor food and lax security.

Associated Press Homeland, Modern Family win at Emmys LOS ANGELES T he terrorism thriller Homeland and Modern Family were the top win ners at Sundays Emmy Awards in a ceremony that veered between daring and predictability in honors and Jimmy Kimmels turn as host. The four awards for Modern Family included a three-peat as best comedy series, although there was a minor backlash online as some Emmy watchers questioned whether the show had a deserving season. Homeland, whose four trophies for its freshman season included honors for stars Claire Danes and Damian Lewis, stopped Mad Men in its tracks, denying the show a record-setting fifth best drama tro phy. Turns out the TV academy wasnt ready to crown the Madison Avenue saga as best ever. Instead, Mad Men walked away without a single statuette despite a leading 17 nomi nations, making it Emmys biggest loser ever, said Tom ONeil of the awards website Gold Derby. Showtimes Homeland, the cable channels first best drama winner, also kept Bryan Cranston from his fourth consecutive best acting award for Breaking Bad and made Mad Men star Jon Hamm an also-ran once more. Im one of those pesky Brits, I apologize, said Lewis, who plays an American. I dont really believe in judging art, but I thought Id show up just in case.

By ADAM KEALOHA CAUSEY TRACY JONES Associated Press JACKSONVILLE When Jacksonville City Councilman Robin Lumb tried to ask questions about the recent tuber culosis outbreak among Jacksonvilles homeless, he was never able to get answers. Lumb was 6 years old when his father was diag nosed with active TB, and he said a vivid part of his childhood was fre quently being tested for TB. He wanted to know the implications of the Jacksonville outbreak, but the Duval County Health Department wouldnt return emails, he said. He wasnt the only one who couldnt get an expla nation. A review of state and local health department emails over a four-year period shows the agen cies released only select information to the public regarding an increase in TB cases among Jacksonvilles homeless population, despite rec ommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and the local pub lic information officer. The emails also revealed the health departments hesitancy to release public records to a reporter and not publicizing a tuber culosis investigation at a local school despite the director later saying the department typically does. Earlier, the health depart ment only began discuss ing the outbreak publicly after an email was mistak enly sent to reporters. Health officials said their decisions were in the publics best interest, but others such as Lumb said they had a responsibility to release details of the outbreak. They shouldnt be try ing to make this informa tion private, Lumb said. What youre really saying is the public isnt sophis ticated enough to absorb the information. The CDC sent repre sentatives to Jacksonville in February to assist in investigating an outbreak of a particular strain of tuberculosis among Jacksonvilles homeless. Emails between CDC representative Gail Grant and Jimmy Keller, deputy chief for the states TB program, reveal the deci sion not to release infor mation about the recent investigation was made by Max Salfinger, the section administrator for the states tuberculosis program. Grant said Salfinger was not interested in reaching out to the media about the report. Page Editor: Jason M.

A central Florida lawmaker whose name has been linked to a prostitution ring dropped out of his reelection race Monday. I believe he made the right decision, House Speaker Will Weatherford said about Republican State Rep. Mike Horner. It is in the best interest of our state and his family. As elected officials, we are held to a high standard and no member of the Florida House is above that standard. The name Mike Horner was found on a list of names in the garbage of a defendant arrested last month for running a prostitution ring, said Bernie Presha, a spokesman for the State Attorneys Office in Orlando. Presha said Horner is not being investigated for any crime and faces no charges. The defendant, Mark Risner, was charged with five felonies and eight mis demeanors following his arrest last month. No one answered the phone at Horners offices in Kissimmee and Tallahassee. The 44-year-old Horner is married and has a son. He was elected to the Florida House in 2008 and is the vice chair of the Transportation & Economic Development Appropriations Committee. State lawmaker out of race; name linked to arrest ASSOCIATED PRESS Rep. Mike Horner, R-Kissimmee is seen debating a law suit bill on May 2, 2011, during the legislatlive session in Tallahassee.

OCKLAWAHA A Marion County woman is being held on a seconddegree murder charge after authorities said she stabbed her ex-husband to death. Jail records show Sherry Lewis, 49, was arrested Saturday morn ing Authorities said Daniel James Lewis, 52, was stabbed several times. He told responding deputies that Sherry Lewis stabbed him before he was taken to the hospital where he died. Man stabbed, his ex-wife charged Off-duty cop shot, 3 arrested MIAMI Three men have been arrested in con nection with the shooting of an off-duty Miami-Dade Police officer during an armed robbery. Police said they have charged Dedrick Brown, 20, and Travares Santiago, 20, and Willie Barney, 19, with attempted murder. They were arrested Sunday and taken to jail. It was not immediately known if they have an attorney. Investigators said the offduty officer was volunteer ing at his church Saturday when he was confronted by three armed suspects who robbed him and then shot the officer in the chest. The officer was treated at the hospital before being released Sunday. The unidentified officer has been in law enforcement for over ten years. It was not immediately known if the suspects knew the victim was a police officer. Woman stabbed, son charged CORAL SPRINGS A 30-year-old man has been charged with first-degree murder after police said his mother was found stabbed in a Coral Springs home. Dee Etienne is being held in the Broward County jail without bond. Hes also charged with resisting arrest without violence.

MIAMI A rise in new orders and the number of homes delivered gave Lennar a boost as its net income more than qua drupled in the third quar ter in part because of a tax benefit. The homebuilder also reported a significant increase in backlog, a sign of potential future housing revenue. Echoing sentiments similar to those expressed by KB Home on Friday, Lennar CEO Stuart Miller said in a statement on Monday that housing recovery is underway. Lennar shares fell 63 cents. or 1.7 percent, to $36.88 in morning trad ing after rising as high as $38.27 earlier in the ses sion, their highest level since June 2007. They are still about triple their low of $12.14 set in early October 2011. Homebuilders are a bellwether for the housing market and the economy. While new homes repre sent less than one-fifth of the total housing market, construction of houses has a major impact on the economy. Part of the reason con sumers are getting back into the housing market is because of historically low rates. On Thursday mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said that the average rate on the 30-year loan declined to 3.49 percent from 3.55 percent last week. That matched the lowest rate since long-term mortgages began in the 1950s. The average on the 15year fixed mortgage, a popular refinancing option, plunged to 2.77 percent, a record low. Earlier in the month the Federal Reserve announced that it plans to spend $40 billion a month to buy mortgage bonds for as long as it thinks neces sary to make home buying more affordable. Lennar Corp., which sells homes for entry level and move-up buyers as well as retirees, earned $87.1 million, or 40 cents per share, for the three months ended Aug. 31, up sharply from $20.7 million, or 11 cents per share, a year ago. The current quarter included a tax benefit of $12.8 million. Analysts surveyed by FactSet expected earnings of 28 cents per share. The estimates typically exclude one-time items. Revenue improved to $1.1 billion from $820.2 million as revenue from home sales increased 33 percent. Wall Street ana lysts forecast $1.02 billion. Lennar said that home deliveries climbed 28 per cent to 3,655 homes, while new orders rose 44 per cent to 4,198 homes. Backlog for the Miami company increased 79 per cent to 4,513 homes. On Friday KB Home reported that it returned to a third-quarter profit thanks partly to a tax bene fit as net orders and home deliveries climbed.

Q The Washington Times S aturday was the 14th annual World Carfree Day, which is billed as a celebration of cities and public life, free from the noise, stress and pollution of cars. Not surpris-ingly, much of the partying was at the publics expense. Last year, for instance, the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments spent $39,600 on local radio advertisements and $7,794 on transit-bus signs urging people to Pledge now to un-car for a day. Governmental agen-cies offered cash, prizes and advertising space toward the effort in metropolitan areas throughout the United States and Europe. Aside from clearing D.C. streets for Mayor Vincent C. Grays motorcade and making room on Parisian highways for limousines ferrying eurocrats between sustainability meet-ings, the one days hate for the internal-combustion engine will accomplish nothing. Its just as empty as Earth Day and its little brother Earth Hour, in which lights are dimmed for 60 minutes to conserve energy as if doing so will rescue the planet from some mythical, imminent doom. If individuals choose to believe sea levels can be altered and polar bears saved by flipping a switch or riding a bicycle, thats their busi-ness. Its not right to raid the public treasury to bankroll these futile gestures. Instead of wasting the day demonizing all things automotive, the time would be better spent celebrat-ing the invention that freed mankind from the clamor, anxi-ety and filth of 19th-century transportation alternatives. All it takes is a history book to envision the reality of a car-less world, and it was a miser-able time. Tailpipe emissions and the rumble of engines havent ruined modern city life; theyve preserved it. A Lincoln or Lexus at speed makes far less racket than the pounding of hooves and rick-ety cart wheels over cobble-stones. The modern internal-combustion engine generates so little pollution that many SUVs on the market today boast ultralow-emissions certi-fication from California, where the standard for harmful gases is measured in thousandths of a gram. The same can hardly be said for the weighty and noisome byproduct of travel by horse. Car-haters frequently point to the annual toll of 32,885 who perish on our highways, implying things would be far safer if only we would return to the halcyon days when trains and trolleys dominated the landscape. It just isnt so. According to contem-porary census reports, 26 Washingtonians died in rail-road accidents in the pre-auto-mobile days of 1890. Despite having streets clogged with automobiles and double the population, the District saw just 25 traffic fatalities in 2010. In 1890, even more lives were lost because of runaway horses. According to the Feb. 24, 1890, edition of The Washington Post, Ann Hessler, a market woman, was thrown from her horse-drawn wagon onto K Street after losing control of the reins. Her life slipped away on the cold pave-ment because there were no ambulances back then to rush her to the hospital. Her skull was fractured and by the time medical aid reached her, she was dead, the Post reported. That is what a world without automobiles actually looks like. A world without cars OUR OPINION HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY Today is Tuesday, Sept. 25, the 269th day of 2012. There are 97 days left in the year. In 1775, American Revolutionary War hero Ethan Allen was captured by the British as he led an attack on Montreal. (Allen was released by the British in 1778.) In 1911, ground was broken for Bostons Fenway Park. In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson collapsed after a speech in Pueblo, Colo., during a national speaking tour in sup-port of the Treaty of Versailles. In 1978, 144 people were killed when a Pacific Southwest Airlines Boeing 727 and a pri-vate plane collided over San Diego. S eeing teachers publicly demonstrating for their rights during their recent seven-day strike reminded me how I began my career as a college professor in the Windy City dur-ing the mid-1970s. Back then, while recalling my public school teachers and having recently completed two transformative years at the University of Chicago in gradu-ate school, I would passion-ately encourage my brightest students to become teachers. Many followed my advice. My routine went something like this: America needs dedicated and competent schoolteachers. And teaching still is the noblest profession. However: Dont become a teacher to earn a high salary, because you never will. You become a teacher to touch the lives of children, to make a positive contribution to their futures, to literally save some of them from their dysfunctional homes and neighborhoods. While you will transmit knowledge and skills, you also will perform the duties of coun-selor, mentor, coach, friend, confidant, diplomat, disciplinar-ian, judge and, of course, surro-gate parent, which may include providing food. You will need to naturally possess or quickly grow a stiff spine, for you will have to endure the politics of school board members, mayors, state and federal officials and other wielders of power. You will need the patience of Job to cope with the irrespon-sibility and bad attitudes of parents and other adults in your students lives. Learn personal stress management, and dont expect a promotion unless you move into administration. You will learn the psychology of being the scapegoat. You will become one sooner than later. You will need the stamina of a beast of burden. Depending on the courses you teach and the socioeconomic statuses of your students, you will work 50-hour weeks. You will bring home your students assignments to grade long after the formal school day has ended. You will attend countless meetings, fill out reams and reams of inane paperwork, annually attend professional development work-shops, and hold conferences with parents ready to take off your head. Many of you will need to moonlight because your day job wont pay enough to make ends meet. Ironically, you will be por-trayed as a moocher who gets the entire summer off. Still, you must be prepared to dig into your pockets to buy your own classroom supplies to do your job. You will spend many, many hours on your feet. Why, you ask, would I want to become a teacher under these ugly conditions? Why? Teaching is our most important profes-sion. It is a calling, and excel-lent teachers are some of our greatest heroes. Thats why. I dropped this spiel more than a decade ago. Now I wouldnt try to encourage a student to become a public school teacher in this toxic environment. Even a lot of people who dont hold teachers in contempt easily speak the popular rhetoric of disrespect. With perhaps the exception of anti-intellectual Australia, the United States is virtually alone in the world in being pro-foundly contemptuous of its schoolteachers. The negative results -vengeful layoffs and firings, increased class loads, evaluations based on unreli-able standardized tests, and the hurry-up establishment of charter schools and vouchers -are damaging the profession beyond repair. After analyzing federal surveys of attrition rates in schools nationwide, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, the U.S. Department of Education and Teach Plus, a nonprofit organization, found that teach-ers are leaving the profession in droves. Nearly half of those entering the field to replace retiring baby boomers leave within five years. The joint anal-ysis shows that teachers with only one year in the classroom constitute the largest single group of teachers. Inexperience is the new normal. Some experts doubt that teaching will ever again attract an adequate number of high-quality prospects. After all, the profession is hampered with an ongoing high attrition rate, nearly 25 percent leaving in the first three years. This state of affairs is not sustainable. A core problem, as many Chicago teachers said, is that most teachers feel ordered around and threatened and bullied by people who have never taught one day, who have not sat through a single lecture on pedagogy. With most deci-sions being pushed down from the top, teachers rarely have meaningful input in decisions that determine their fate -an unthinkable condition in other fields. Most Americans with children in public schools expect miracles from the very teachers they demonize so vehemently. I no longer will encourage stu-dents to become teachers. Why I stopped urging my students to teach M ired in a con-tract dispute, the National Football League locked out its regular referees in June. The league thought it could rely on less-experienced officials who normally work small college football games. The results so far have been predictable: blown calls, angry players, livid coaches and ridi-cule from fans and the media. The league isnt backing down. It says the replacements have been doing a good job, and cited a statistic showing that the replacement refs are throwing about as many penalty flags as the regular officials. Maybe so. But PR spin can only go so far. The games are taking longer to complete as the replacement refs arent as famil-iar with the rulebook, there are more instant replay reviews and on-field scrums are frequently turning into full-scale fights. ESPN broadcaster Mike Tirico summed it up during the Monday Night Football game between Denver and Atlanta: Honestly, its embarrassing. The command and control of this game is gone. As bad as the replacement refs are, veteran NFL refs arent perfect, either. And theyre not full-time NFL employees. During the week, most have other jobs. Still, they want the NFL to pay them more money for their part-time job, plus guarantee them a full pension plan. While the sloppy officiating so far this season might strengthen the referees bar-gaining position, this is not the time to be greedy. The refs have some of the best moonlighting gigs in the world. They need to be willing to compromise. The NFL didnt get to be a $9 billion a year corporate behemoth by giving in to con-tract demands. But the league has to do something to protect the integrity and appeal of Americas favorite sport. Their players are the best in the world. The refs need to be the best, too. Reach an agreement. Now. NFL must reach agreement with locked-out refs now 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.

The event, held in honor of Davion Markhel Smith, a rising 8th-grader at Richardson Middle School who died suddenly August 21, is designed to address bullying in local schools. Circumstances surroundng young Davions death were never released, but those close to the family say they think bul-lying is what led to this tragic loss. We applaud Davions family for having the courage to allow his name to be used in this fashion. We applaud Unity Day organizers for realizing the need to speak publicly about a problem that wont go away on its own.

Sluggish growth and national unem ployment of 8.1 percent make the economy by far the dominant issue in the race, and the two men have focused much of their time and advertising budgets on highlighting their differ ences on taxes, spending and plans for job creation. The same polls show Obama with a healthy lead over Romney when voters are asked which candi date is better equipped to handle foreign policy, and the president has not shied away from trumpeting his decision to order the secret mission by U.S. forces that killed terrorism master mind Osama bin Laden in his Pakistani hideout more than a year ago. At the same time, Romneys advisers say voters are more inclined to question Obamas handling of foreign policy after the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, earlier this month resulted in the death of the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. Not only Romney, but other Republicans, as well, challenged Obama on for eign policy on Monday. In a conference call with reporters, Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., the House majority leader, said: Israel contin ues to find itself on the receiving end of harsh lan guage by the president of the White House. ... There is a somewhat continued pattern of throwing Israel under the bus when Israel stands as our closest ally. And the National Republican Senatorial Committee issued chal lenges to Democratic can didates in several races to share their view on Obamas remarks in an interview with CBS 60 Minutes over the week end. In the interview itself, Obama was responding when asked if recent events in the Middle East gave him pause for supporting governments that came to power following a wave of regime changes known as the Arab Spring. He said he has long noted that events were going to be rocky, adding that the question itself presumes that somehow we could have stopped this wave of change. I think it was absolutely the right thing for us to align ourselves with democ racy, universal rights. ... But I was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there are going to be bumps in the road because you know, in a lot of these places the one organizing principle has been Islam. He added: There are strains of extremism, and anti-Americans, and antiWestern sentiments and you know can be tapped into by demagogues. Romney was eager to talk about the topic, squeez ing interviews with three television networks into his schedule and touching on the subject at the beginning of a rally in Pueblo, Colo. I cant imagine saying something like the assas sination of ambassadors is a bump in the road, when you look at the entire con text, the assassination, the Muslim Brotherhood presi dent being elected in Egypt, 20,000 people killed in Syria, Iran close to becoming a nuclear nation, that these are far from being bumps in the road, he told ABC. They represent events that are spinning out of the kind of influence wed like to have. Were at the mercy of events rather than shap ing the events in the Middle East. U.S. officials are investi gating the deaths in Libya, which occurred when the consulate was breached. In his appearance on The View, the president avoided a direct answer when asked if the attack had been terrorism. Theres no doubt that the kind of weapons that were used, the ongoing assault, that it wasnt just a mob action. Whats clear is that, around the world, there are still a lot of threats out there, he said. Romney intends to return to the subject of internation al affairs and discuss for eign aid, trade agreements and international develop ment when he addresses the Clinton Global Initiative in New York on Tuesday, according to a person famil iar with the campaigns thinking. Romney, like Cantor, took a slap Monday at Obamas handling of relations with Israel. The president doesnt have time to actually spend time with leaders of these nations, particularly Bibi Netanyahu. I find that very troubling, he said. the kitchen of the home over a plate of food and the argument escalated to the point where Bing alleg edly grabbed a knife from the kitchen counter and pointed it at the victim and threatened her. The woman told the deputy she was in fear for her safety because when the incident occurred she was approximately five feet away from Bing. The woman said a wit ness then stepped between she and Bing and pulled her away from him. Stratton collected wit ness statements and the knife, which was placed into evidence, and then arrested Bing. Museum hosts family activities Saturday GAINESVILLE --Join the Florida Museum of Natural History Saturday for free opening day activities from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and a celebration of its newest temporary exhibits, PeanutsNaturally: Charlie Brown and Friends Explore Nature and Water: Discovering and Sharing Solutions. Opening day activities include live amphibians for families to see and enjoy, an appearance by Abraham Lincoln and a vari ety of hands-on displays and information from groups including the University of Florida Smathers Library, The Sequential Artists Workshop, UFs School of Ants project, the Florida Friendly Landscaping program and various UF student organiza tions. Everyone from a scientist to a comic strip artist has the ability to help with con servation and preservation of our natural world, said Florida Museum education assistant Tiffany Ireland. I believe the dual opening of these exhibits shows this ideal. The PeanutsNaturally exhibit takes a light-hearted look at Charles Schulzs exploration of the natural world through Peanuts comic strips, videos, objects and interactive stations. Topics include the universe, web of nature, trees, birds, the elements of snow, wind, rain and clouds, gardening and Charlie Browns Environmental Protection Agency esca pade. Through interactive displays, live animals and water tables, the Water: Discovering and Sharing Solutions exhibit demon strates ways UF is finding solutions to global challenges involving water, invasive animals and plants, and food production. The exhibition is part of the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Morrill Act of 1862, which enabled the creation of landgrant universities, including UF. All opening day activities and admission to the water exhibit are free. Admission to the Peanuts...Naturally exhibit is $4 for adults, $3.50 for Florida residents and seniors and $3 for ages 3-17. UF stu dents with a valid Gator 1 ID receive free admission to the Peanuts and Butterfly Rainforest exhibits through Sunday. On opening day, UFs George A. Smathers Libraries will show visitors how newspapers and Peanuts comic strips were printed in the 19th century with an interactive printing press display. The Sequential Artists Workshop also will demonstrate comic strip writing, drawing and inking with a hands-on family activity. Abraham Lincoln, who signed the Morrill Act, will speak with visitors from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The UF department of entomology and nematology School of Ants project will also provide families with information on participating in research by studying ants in their neighborhoods. Participating UF student groups include Students United in the Research of Fisheries, the Wildlife Graduate Student Association and the Forestry Graduate Student Organization. The Florida Friendly Landscaping pro gram will provide information on waterconscious landscaping and water conser vation. Peanuts...Naturally is organized and toured by the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, Santa Rosa, Calif. Water: Discovering and Sharing Solutions is a collaborative project produced by the Florida Museum of Natural History, the University of Florida and UF/IFAS. The museum will display both exhibits through Jan. 2, 2013. For more information on opening day activities, call 352-273-2061. White Springs dive will benefit water districts MFLs program LIVE OAK Its not often cave divers are presented the opportunity to explore the cave system at White Sulphur Springs, but two divers were able to enter the system recently to help collect scientific data that will support the Suwannee River Water Management Districts (District) minimum flows and levels (MFLs) program. On August 7, two divers from Karst Environmental Services (KES) descended about 140 feet deep and 400 feet back into the cave system. Their mission was to assess the condition of the cave as a first step toward understanding the source aquifer(s) of the spring. While the crew could not find groundwater sources tributary to the main tunnel, they did discover that the cave runs in a southern direction that could take it under the Suwannee River, which concurs with a 1989 survey of the cave system. John Good, District chief profes sional engineer, said the exploratory dive will help the District better understand how the system works. Knowing which aquifer the water is coming from will help the District understand why the spring isnt flow ing consistently, Good said. Were also looking at how much the spring could have contributed to the river when it did flow regularly. The District has contracted with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to conduct water quality analysis to study the spring. KES is assist ing the USGS with collecting water samples. This information will help the District in its establishment of MFLs for the Upper Suwannee River, White Sulphur Springs, and Suwannee Springs.

The zoo had all but given up on the panda mothers chances of con-ceiving. A necropsy on the cub will be completed within two weeks, and officials expect to have a defini-tive answer on the cause of death. Panda cubs are about the size of a stick of butter at birth and are sus-ceptible to infections and fatal injuries. There was no evidence of fluid in the cubs lungs, which would suggest pneu-monia, and the cub was not accidentally crushed by its mother, which has happened to other cubs born in captivity. On any given day in the first two weeks of life, pandas born in captivity have a mortali-ty rate of about 18 percent, zoo officials said. Their mortality rate in the wild is unknown, but only a few thousand giant pandas are believed to remain in the wild. Only a few hundred are in captivity. The fluid in the cubs abdomen was unusual and could have been a symp-tom of the liver problem, said Suzan Murray, the zoos chief veterinarian. The liver, about the size of a kidney bean, was harder than usual and discolored, she said. There was milk in the cubs gastrointestinal tract, but the initial examination could not determine how well it had been nursing, Murray said. The cubs mother, 14-year-old Mei Xiang, has come out of her den and started eating again and interacting with her keepers, Murray said. The panda slept well Sunday night and has been cra-dling a plastic toy. We think this is her natural mothering instinct, National Zoo director Dennis Kelly said. Zoo officials said it was too early to know if they would attempt to breed Mei Xiang again next year, but the breeding program at the zoo will continue. Mei Xiang had five consecutive pseudo-pregnancies before giving birth on Sept. 16. A pseu-dopregnancy occurs when a panda ovulates but does not conceive. Mei Xiang had been artificially inseminated with sperm from her male part-ner, Tian Tian. The pairs only cub, Tai Shan, was born in 2005 and became the zoos star attraction before he was returned to China in 2010. Four U.S. zoos have pandas, but the bears at the National Zoo are treated like royalty. The zoo was given its first set of pan-das in 1972 as a gift from China to commemorate President Richard Nixons historic visit to the coun-try. The zoos first panda couple, Ling Ling and Hsing Hsing, had five cubs during the 1980s, but none lived more than a few days. Because Mei Xiangs other cub survived and she appeared to be taking good care of the newborn, zoo officials were cau-tiously optimistic about the new cub. Kelly said he was not aware of anything that could have been done to improve its chances of survival. Thousands of people watched Mei Xiang tend to her cub on the zoos online pandacam, which also allowed zookeepers to monitor the mother and newborn. On Monday, fans lamented the cubs death in messages posted on Twitter and other social media sites, using the same hashtag used after the pandas birth: cub-watch. The video feed of Mei Xiang remained online Monday. The staff was taking the loss especially hard because of the work theyd put in over the past 6 years to produce another cub, Kelly said. Every loss is hard, he said. ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this file photo taken Dec. 19, 2011, Mei Xiang, a female g iant panda, eats while at the Smithsonians National Zoo in Washington.

JAY REEVESAssociated PressHUNTSVILLE, Ala. An ex-university profes-sor who pleaded guilty to shooting six people during a faculty meeting in Alabama was in court Monday for an abbreviated trial. Jury selection began Monday morning for Amy Bishop, a Harvard-educat-ed biologist who went on the shooting spree at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Twelve jurors and two alternates were picked eight women, six men. Among the potential jurors dismissed was a jailer who has dealt with Bishop while she was in custody. She wore a red jail uniform in court and was shackled at the feet, seated between two attorneys at the defense table. A deputy removed her handcuffs. Also in court, sitting behind prosecutors, were relatives of the people killed in the February 2010 rampage. At least one of the shooting victims who survived also was present. Opening statements are set to begin after lunch. Bishop pleaded guilty earlier this month to killing three people and wounding three others in February 2010. She avoided a pos-sible death sentence with the plea and instead faces life imprisonment. But a trial is still required under Alabama law because Bishop admit-ted to a capital charge of murder. So lawyers will select a jury and Circuit Judge Alan Mann will hold a brief trial. Mann told jurors that the death penalty is not a possibility to put your mind at ease. Bishop still could face a trial in Massachusetts, where she is charged in the 1986 killing of her 18-year-old brother. Seth Bishops death had been ruled an accident after Amy Bishop told inves-tigators she shot him in the familys Braintree home as she tried to unload her fathers gun. But the Alabama shoot-ings prompted a new investigation and charges. Prosecutors have said they will wait until after sentencing in the Alabama case to determine whether to put Bishop on trial in Massachusetts.Ex-prof in court for university shooting ASSOCIATED PRESSAmy Bishop is escorted by sheriffs deputies at the Mad ison County Courthouse in Hunstville, Ala., on Sept. 11. Court officials said Bishop pleaded guilty to fatally shooting three colleagues and wounding three others at a faculty meeting at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

On Saturday night, the Seminoles proved they were with a 49-37 win against Clemson. In a matchup pitting two of the nations top teams, the Seminoles finally proved that they are again elite. Florida State has had a few opportunities over the past couple of years to prove that they were back to contending for national championships, but the Seminoles have come up flat in those contests. By ED HOOPERThe Valdosta Daily TimesVALDOSTA, Ga. Chandler Cargile may only be 15 years old, but he is one of the best barefoot water skiers in the world. Cargile, a sophomore at Valwood School in Valdosta, Ga., began barefoot water skiing 2 12 years ago. Since then, he has picked up and mastered his craft in three events (tricks, slalom and jump) and has become one of the best in the world. Recently, Cargile represented the United States in the World Championships in Waco, Texas. Cargile competed against skiers from 15 other coun-tries, including Australia, New Zealand and Great Britain. He won an individ-ual silver medal in jump. Overall, the U.S. Junior Team brought home the sil-ver medal. Cargile also finished the championship fourth over-all and he is now ranked fifth in the world in the Junior Boys level. In August, Cargile competed at Nationals in Waco, Texas, where he won a silver medal in both tricks and slalom. It was about that time he received the news he had made the U.S. Junior Barefoot Water Ski Team and would represent the United States at the World Championships, which was at the same location of the national competition. The World Competition is held every two years and this year the U.S. was the host country. The U.S. was represented by three teams at Worlds the Junior, Elite and Senior teams.

PG-13 INDIANS: 5 wins for second-half teams Continued From Page 1B CARGILE: Sweeps Southern Regional Continued From Page 1B FSU: Manuel in Heisman discussion Continued From Page 1B On Saturday, Florida State used a defining win that should set the Seminoles up for a run at the ACC championship and possibly even the national title. But it wasnt just the fact that the Seminoles won. It was how they were able to do it. The mark of a good team can often be linked to how it responds in the face of adversity and after Clemson scored to go up 28-14 early in the third quarter, Florida State responded with four consecutive scoring drives. Quarterback EJ Manuel catapulted himself into the Heisman discussion with 483 combined yards (380 passing and 103 rushing) and freshman running back James Wilder Jr. burst onto the national scene with an eye-popping run. There had been questions about whether Manuel could lead the Seminoles to the promised land. Wilder Jr. wasnt one of his critics, but he believes that Manuel just silenced many of them. I think he just shut everybody up, Wilder said. Certainly the vast majority now believe Manuel has the stuff to carry the Seminoles when the pressure gets tough. Clemson has been a team that has haunted the Seminoles so many times as of late, but this game could be the turning of the corner for Florida State. Clemson had won five of the previous seven contests against the Seminoles, so getting past the Tigers was a must for Florida State. And not only did the Seminoles get past the Tigers, they did it to the tune of a 35-10 run in the second half that helped Florida State solidify its Top 5 credentials. The defense had struggled to contain Tahj Boyd throughout the first half, but once the offense ignited the crowd, the defense and Columbia product Timmy Jernigan followed suit. We were feeding off the offense, Jernigan said. When we saw that the offense just kept fighting back and EJ stepped up so much, the whole defense just fed off that. Its the kind of win that could keep feeding the program. Q Brandon Finley covers sports for the Lake City Reporter was notified he was being considered for the U.S. Junior Barefoot Water Ski Team. With the Team Selection Committee picking only six skiers for the Junior Team, Cargile began training even harder in hopes of making the team. He was already a sponsored athlete at World Barefoot Center in Winter Haven, where he trained with his coach. Cargile spent the summer between Winter Haven and traveling to tournaments, before completely commit-ting himself to making the U.S. team. Knowing the 10-member Team Selection Committee was reviewing the World Standing List and scores, he had to post good scores at tournaments. That is exactly what he did. At the Southern Regional Tournament in July, Cargile placed first in Boys 3 Slalom, first in Boys 3 Tricks, first in Boys 3 Inverted Jump and placed first in Boys 3 Overall. For those not familiar to barefoot water skiing, points are earned accord-ing to the difficulty and amount of the tricks done within the 15-second time limit. In slalom, points are gained according to how many times you can cross the wake back and forth within the 15 seconds. Extra points are awarded for crossing with one foot or skiing backwards. Cargiles favorite and stronger event is jump. He is one of the first Junior skiers to jump inverted. The support and encouragement Chandler has received from his school and the community has been overwhelming. Valwood excused him from a class trip so he could spend that week in Winter Haven with his coach and the teachers are working with him to make up the school he has missed. They even let my classmates watch the live stream of me skiing during my trick run, Cargile said. That was pretty cool. Some of my friends were texting saying they saw me. The next world competition will be in two years and Cargile will be eligible to compete for the Junior Team. He plans to continue to work and master his craft so he can compete in the next world championship competition, which will be held in Australia. Cargiles parents are Mark and Beth Cargile of Dasher, Ga. His grandpar-ents are Bill Cargile for-merly of Lake Park, Ga., and Nick and Mary Brown Whitehurst of Lake City.

Lady Tiger golfers defeat Gainesville Fisher: Heisman popularity contest for show dogsAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said Monday that the Heisman Trophy is a popularity contest for show dogs. Fisher bristled briefly when asked about quarterback EJ Manuels chances of winning the award. Fisher did say it would be wonderful if Manuel won it.
DEAR ABBY: Im a single guy, 33 years old. I am 6 feet 9 inches tall, and defined as husky. I only need to enter a room and it gets quiet followed by a funny comment about my size. I smile and laugh to put people at ease. Then Im forgotten, a gentle giant who is called on only when people want some-thing. Im sorry to say women either want nothing to do with me, or something to do with my wallet. I dont enjoy spending my life alone looked at like a freak of nature. But morning comes and I carry on in pain while wearing a smile. I keep hoping to find that special someone who would hold me and tell me it is going to be OK. It would be nice to smile because Im happy instead of doing it to hide pain. Do you think it will hap-pen someday? Maybe? -HURTS TO SMILE DEAR HURTS: Yes, I do, and Id like to suggest two things you can do to make it happen. The first is to contact a group called Tall Clubs International. Its a not-for-profit social organization for tall adults (men must be at least 6 feet 2 inches and women at least 5 feet 10 inches) that was founded in the late 1930s. It provides members with social activities and travel to cities around the U.S. and Canada for gatherings. The toll-free phone number is 888-468-2552 and the website is www.tall.org. Through this group you can meet people with whom you see eye to eye. I would also suggest that you talk about your self-esteem issues and sadness with a licensed mental health professional. You are not a freak -youre a big guy with a big heart and the same need to feel accepted and wanted as everyone else. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: After 29 years of marriage, I am leaving. I took off my wedding ring about three weeks ago, and the indentation it left is like a permanent scar -a painful reminder of a failed mar-riage. Do you have any suggestions to lessen the mark left on my finger? I have considered buying myself a large precious gemstone in celebration of my freedom, but I would like to know if there are any alternatives. Im not opposed to plastic sur-gery if it is necessary. -MARKED FOR LIFE IN MASSACHUSETTS DEAR MARRED: If you buy yourself a large ring for the third finger of your left hand, people may think you are engaged or still married. My advice is to consult a dermatolo-gist about the mark left by your wedding ring. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: I am a middle-aged woman in a five-year relationship with another woman. My girl-friend lives in another city and shares her home with her 30-year-old son. During a conversation recently, she mentioned that her son massages her feet at night. I often mas-sage her feet, and I know that foot rubs are sensual and somewhat intimate. I feel it is inappropriate for her adult son to be doing this. What do you think? -BEFUDDLED IN FLORIDA DEAR BEFUDDLED: I think it depends upon who is doing the rubbing and the circumstances. When some-one gets a foot rub from a lover or a spouse, it can be a form of foreplay. When its done during a pedicure, its not. I seriously doubt the woman gets turned on when her son massages her tootsies, so forget about it! DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your work will be rewarding.
