The Bring Kamrie Home Benefit was held Saturday afternoon across U.S. 90 from the Lake City Mall. Surrounded by joyful music, bounce houses and face painting, Kamrie’s mother, Stefani Mitchell, said she was trying hard to be positive and hold back tears. “They have shown a lot of support. This is a great community,” Mitchell said. “We’ve had some good support out here,” she said. Businesses donated items and gift cards for raffle drawings. The family was also selling lunch and shirts printed with Kamrie Mitchell’s picture and description. Depending on how much money the family raises, they may offer a reward, her mother said. Kamrie Mitchell was reported missing Sept. 2. Her vehicle was recovered days later in Suwannee County, near the county line. She was last seen by family in the Branford and Lake City area Sept. 25.

AROUND FLORIDA Friday: 3-5-10-26 7 Friday: 3-11-18-20-30 Saturday: Afternoon: 0-1-1 Evening: N/A Saturday: Afternoon: 5-5-7-8 Evening: N/A Saturday: N/A Biden doesnt recognize Romneys America FORT MYERS P resident Barack Obama had been on the job less than a week when a top eco nomic adviser told him and Vice President Joe Biden that the country faced a trillion dollar deficit, Biden told a roomful of Florida supporters Saturday. Obama replied, But I havent done anything yet, Biden recalled. The mammoth deficit landed in Obamas lap, Biden said, because for mer President George W. Bush put two wars on a credit card, and gave tax cuts to the wealthy. Not long after getting the grim news about the deficit in 2009, the Obama White House said the country faced a long and painful finan cial recovery, even with major government inter vention to stimulate the economy and save finan cial institutions. The economy has been on voters minds across the country, but especially in Fort Myers, located in a county thats suffered among the most foreclosures per capita in the country. In his talk Saturday to more than 2,000 people at a community center in Fort Myers, Biden said the GOP is all in the service for tax cuts for the super wealthy. He highlighted the per ceived class differences between the Obama administration and the campaign of Republican challenger Mitt Romney. He said $500 billion of the extension of the Bush tax cuts goes to 120,000 families. Biden also continued to hammer Romney on a leaked video in which Romney described 47 percent of Americans as people who pay no federal income tax and believe that they are victims. Biden said that Romneys running mate, Congressman Paul Ryan, also talked about similar themes in Young Guns, the book he co-authored. When they talk about the culture of dependen cy, I dont recognize the country theyre talking about, said Biden. The American people are so much better, so much stronger, take so much more responsibility than these guys give them credit for. Biden spoke for about 40 minutes in Fort Myers, located on Floridas Gulf coast. It was the second day of a two-day Florida cam paign swing that started in two large retirement communities along the states east coast. All of the scheduled campaign events drew many retirees, near-retir ees and white, workingclass voters. The cam paign looked to shore up support amongst those groups by talking about Medicare. Missing airman finally buried MARIANNA A Florida U.S. Army pilot whose body had been missing for decades has finally been buried. U.S. Army Air Forces 2nd Lt. Samuel E. Lundays remains lay inside his aircraft on a Himalayan mountain for decades. An American hiker stumbled across the wreckage of Lundays C-87 and his remains were repa triated in 2003. Lunday was buried Friday in Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors. According to the U.S. Department of Defense, the hiker recovered the aircrafts identification plate, military equipment and human remains. The department said Lunday and four other U.S. servicemen were flying over the Himalayan moun tains in 1943. The crew lost radio com munications after takeout. Officials searched the area, but were thwarted by heavy snow. Man guilty in gang rape, murder MIAMI A man faces a possible death sentence for his part in the abduc tion of a young couple on South Beach, killing the girlfriend and leaving the boyfriend to die. A Miami-Dade County jury took just over an hour Friday to find 33-year-old Joel Lebron guilty of firstdegree murder, rape and kidnapping. Authorities say then 17-year-old Nelson Portobanco and 18-yearold Ana Maria Angel were walking back to their car after a date in April 2002 when they were forced into the pickup by Lebron and four other men. Authorities say Lebron stabbed Portobanco and left him for dead along Interstate 95, but the teen survived. Angel was repeat edly raped and taken to a retaining wall beside I-95 in Palm Beach County, where Lebron killed her with a single gunshot to the back of her head. Associated Press LOS ANGELES Arnold Schwarzenegger says his wife, Maria Shriver, was told to snap out of it by her mother for her attempts to persuade him against running for California governor in 2003, a conversation that ultimately opened the door to his successful candidacy. Eunice Shriver told her daughter that her husband would be angry for the rest of his life if she stopped his ambitions, Schwarzenegger writes in his new autobiography, Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story. The former governor says in the book that he had decided against running to recall Gov. Gray Davis after his wife implored him not to for the sake of their family. Maria Shriver announced his decision to their four children. But he writes that when Maria Shriver told her mother about her efforts to thwart Schwarzeneggers political ambitions, Eunice told her daughter that women in their family always support the men when they want to do something. Schwarzenegger says he didnt know about the conversation at the time, but learned of it later. Maria Shriver then softened her stance, paving the way for Schwarzenegger to announce his candidacy on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, where he says he felt most comfortable. The announcement came after a week of wavering. Schwarzenegger says before he headed to the TV appearance, his wife handed him two pieces of paper with talking points she had written: one in case he decided to run, another in case he decided not to. He writes that Shriver went on to become a key ally and adviser to his campaign and eventual governor ship. Schwarzenegger has often said that Marias mother and her father, Sargent Shriver, were essential to his eventual decision to seek public office, and the most extraordinary human beings Ive ever met. But he also writes in the book that he often teased his wife that the close-knit Democratic Kennedy clan was like a bunch of clones because there was such conformity among them. A spokesman for Shriver, Matthew DiGirolamo, declined to comment on the contents of the book. Total Recall will officially be published next week. The Associated Press purchased an early copy. Schwarzenegger also writes he had a hot affair with actress Brigitte Nielsen at a time he and Maria Shriver were dating and already living together. Schwarzenegger and Nielsen costarred in the 1985 film Red Sonja. In Total Recall, Schwarzenegger writes that he knew the fling with Nielsen wouldnt last and in fact it only made him realize that he want ed to marry Shriver. The book is part of an effort by the onetime Mr. Universe and Hollywood action star to rebrand himself after leaving office with a mixed record and subsequent embarrassing revelations about a fling he had with the familys housekeeper. Schwarzenegger, who fathered a son with the housekeeper, says he also let the boy down. NYer pleads guilty to stalking actress NEW YORK A New York City woman has pleaded guilty to stalk ing The Dark Knight Rises actress Marion Cotillard (koh-tee-YAR). Teresa Yuan pleaded guilty Friday in Brooklyn federal court. Prosecutors say she sent 504 emails and 120 webcam videos of herself to a Cotillard fan website over four days in 2011. In some of the videos shown in court, Yuan appears to be topless, hisses like a cat and discusses play ing Russian roulette. Her lawyer says he agrees the videos could seem threatening. The 32-year-old Queens resident told a judge that shes undergoing psychiatric treatment for bipolar dis order. The charge carries a sentence of up to 16 months in prison, but her lawyer says prosecutors have indicat ed they wouldnt object to probation and psychological treatment.

The event was held at the Lake City VA Medical Center Auditorium, lasted four hours and featured flu shots, massage thera py, free health screenings and immunizations, and blood pressure checks. In addition attendees were also given informa tion on how to become physically active, how to become tobacco free, ways to manage stress and they learned about suicide prevention, gun safety and post traumatic stress dis order management. Veterans and employees were also told about online services where they could schedule medical tests and later review the test results. We started having the event annually last year to promote all the health and wellness promotions we have here at the VA and to get the commu nity involved because our veterans also use commu nity resources, said Kelli Crews, health promotion and disease prevention program manager at the VA Medical Center. Crews said more than 500 people attended the inaugural event last year and she was hoping to attract at least that num ber for Thursdays event. Nationally the VA is promoting patient cen teredness at all the VA medical centers where the patient is at the center of all its health care and thats one of the reason we do this health fair so the patients can become aware of everything that is available to them so they can make informed decisions by themselves on their health, Crews said.

Elizabeth Porter (R-Lake City), third from right. By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com A Columbia County firefighter was injured Friday morning battling a house fire on Denver Street as local fire depart ments battled two early morning blazes within city limits. The department has not released the firefighters name, but officials with the department noted the firefighter was taken by ambulance to a local hospital for a possible ankle injury and he was recently released from the hospital. The first fire occurred around 3:41 a.m. Friday at 678 SE St. Johns St., when the upstairs area of a wooden, two-story struc ture caught fire. No one was injured in the fire and the cause of the blaze has not been determined. When the fire units arrived they had a working room and contents fire on the second floor, said Frank Armijo, Lake City Fire Department assistant chief. Firefighters went into the interior of the home and did a search and rescue opera tion, extinguishing the fire as they did the search and rescue. The home was occupied and two adults were displaced as a result of the blaze, which caused approximately $35,000 worth of damage. The home is inhabitable, the electricity has been turned off, but it is not beyond repair, Armijo said. The Lake City Fire Department respond ed to the scene with a ladder truck and an engine, six firefighters and two command staff, while the Columbia County Fire Department responded to the scene with two engines, a command staff unit and a total of five personnel. As firefighters were extinguishing the fire, around 4:58 a.m. another fire was reported at 672 NE Denver St. The last unit didnt leave the St. Johns street fire until 6:25 a.m. Units from the Columbia County Fire Department and the Lake City Fire Department responded to the second blaze. It was a working structure fire when we arrived, Armijo said. The flames were coming out the front end of the house. A county firefighter who was fighting the blaze suffered an ankle injury and was taken to a local hospital. The home was a single story, woodframed structure, and was unoccupied. The Lake City Fire Department responded to the scene with a ladder truck, four firefighters and two command staff personnel. The Columbia County Fire Department responded to the scene with two engines, a command unit and a total of six personnel. The cause of the fire has not been deter mined and detective Jerry Baker of the State Fire Marshals office was called to the scene because a firefighter was injured while working on the blaze. Armijo said the cause of the fire has not been determined and the fire report is incomplete because the fire under investi gation by the fire marshals office. A state fire marshal was called to the scene due to the injury of a firefighter and also to investigate what caused the fire, he said. Armijo described the home as inhabit able after the blaze. It was a total loss he said. The last unit left the scene at 7:49 a.m. Farm Bureau annual dinner meeting draws 300 From staff reports The Columbia County Farm Bureau held its 2012 annual dinner meeting Thursday eve ning at the Columbia County Fairgrounds Banquet Building.

S pain took center stage this week in the seemingly unend-ing drama that is the European debt crisis. The streets were rocked with violent protests, and many in the wealthy region of Catalonia are looking to unhitch them-selves from Madrid’s control. The increasingly unpopular Prime Minister Marino Rajoy announced the latest federal budget would be heavier on spending cuts than on tax increases in an effort to fend off asking for a bailout from the European Union. Markets remained skeptical, with the yield for Spanish 10-year bonds headed into the danger zone of 7 percent yields. Banks aren’t going to continue lending money to the Spanish government unless they believe real reform is on the agenda. Incurring more debt, whether from the open markets or the European Central Bank, will not put Spain back on a path toward prosperity. The country urgently needs pro-growth policies, as unemployment has risen by 3 percentage points this year, leaving a full one-quarter of the working popula-tion unemployed. Those are crisis-level numbers requiring more than just tinkering around the edges to resolve. Unfortunately, despite some favorable elements, Mr. Rajoy’s latest budget is afflict-ed by all-too-common politi-cal myopia. Core spending, excluding interest payments and social security, is indeed expected to fall by just over 7 percent, or $16.7 billion. The bad news is that overall federal government outlays will still increase by 5.6 percent due to the growing cost of servic-ing the national debt. Another piece of bad news is that a significant part of the deficit reduction will be financed by implementing a 15 percent increase in the value-added tax — a consumption tax, which is intrinsically regressive. The country’s 17 autonomous regions will also have to come through with another $6.5 bil-lion in spending cuts. Despite this, Mr. Rajoy is resisting appeals for him to seek a bailout. The European Central Bank will likely step in and start buying Spanish bonds under its new expansion of authority. A bond-buying program will bring down bond yields and reduce the cost of debt servicing. That might be enough to avoid the need for an all-out bailout, something that would be exceedingly expensive considering Spain is the EU’s fourth-largest economy. At the same time, Madrid is facing Catalonia’s calls for seces-sion. The Spanish constitutional court recently struck down enhancements in home rule, on petition from Mr. Rajoy’s administration. The Catalonian regional government responded by setting a snap election in November, an election that could easily turn into a referen-dum on secession. Whether Spain splits into multiple regions or stays united, simply fiddling with fiscal num-bers while continuing to borrow will not resolve the underlying reasons for Spain’s stagnation. Like every country in Europe — and the United States as well — Spain needs to turn off the spending spigot. It also needs to scale back job-killing regulations and cut its intrusive govern-ment. Until it addresses these fundamental problems, Spain will remain in perpetual crisis. European debt crisis:Spanish edition OUR OPINION HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY Today is Sunday, Sept. 30, the 274th day of 2012. There are 92 days left in the On this date: In 1777, the Congress of the United States — forced to flee in the face of advancing British forces — moved to York, Pa. In 1791, Mozart’s opera “The Magic Flute” premiered in Vienna, Austria. In 1846, dentist William Morton used ether as an anes-thetic for the first time on a patient in his Boston office. In 1905, British director Michael Powell (“The Red Shoes”) was born in Bekesbourne, Kent, England. I f you remember the roll-ing stores of long ago, chances are you were raised in or spent a lot of time in the country. You also remember what a happy time it was when the roll-ing store rolled up near your house and tooted the horn to announce its arrival. The rolling store was a store on wheels, usually an old truck or school bus that had been enclosed so the back end could hold all the products they had to sell. Shelves were added to dis-play the wares. The rolling store was like a mini-general store All this was in a day when neighbors lived far apart and the distance to the nearest town was even farther. It was especially important to those people, like sharecroppers, who did not have a car or a truck. The rolling store was their lifeline to certain basic products you could only buy in a town: flour, salt, baking powder, overalls, thread for the sewing machine, finished clothing, cloth, kero-sene, etc. With money so scarce, barter was commonplace. Farmers would sometimes swap eggs, vegetables, pecans, or whatever they had for merchandise. Rolling stores often had regular delivery schedules so the country people would know when to expect them. Children were often the happiest to see the rolling store because they knew they would get a small piece of hard candy, for them a real luxury. Rarely a rolling store might have an iced soft drink box to store Royal Crown Cola or Coca Cola and other soft drinks. Mmmm, good! The rolling stores were usually ‘mom and pop’ operations. The couple would buy their products in town, and then mark them up to cover the cost of doing busi-ness. It was a basic business model, serving the needs of its customers, and making a profit. One rolling store driver said their little stores were among the first form of rural home delivery in America, right up there with Sears Roebuck. OLD SCHOOL PUNISHMENTAt the recent Columbia Bank Heritage Club luncheon, several at our table discussed corporal punishment of students in the schools of long ago. They all said that if they got a whipping at school, they also got one at home—and the one at home was usually harder. Most parents simply did not put up with misconduct at school. Our School Board also took student misconduct seriously. Back then, student conduct was referred to as deportment. Repeated bad deportment could have dire consequences: it might keep you from graduating. The wording on 1920’s Columbia High School diplomas confirms that: “(Student name), having completed the Course of Study prescribed by the Board of Education, and by Intellectual Attainments and CORRECT DEPORTMENT (capitals mine) is hereby declared a graduate of Columbia High School and is entitled to this diploma. Our School Board obviously wanted our graduates to be both academically competent and good citizens. PEDDLER’S PERMITSIn May of 1959, Lake City celebrated its centennial (1859-1959) and various novelty badges showed up for sale around town. One said “Peddler’s Permit. This is to certify that (insert name) is hereby permitted to sell, trade, purvey, tell lies, ‘shoot the bull’, etc. to any and all retail stores and emporia in Lake City during the Centennial Year.” Cost of this permit? $1.00. FACA HALL OF FAMELake City is well represented in the Florida Athletic Coaches Hall of Fame with six mem-bers: Hobe Hooser, Gene Cox, Crockett Farnell, Paul Quinn, Fred Rozelle, and Faris Brannon. Hobe Hooser and Gene Cox were past presidents, in 1939 and 1972 respectively. WORSHIP CENTER?Some Texans have joked that Texas high school football is a religion. Recently Allen, Texas built a $60 million high school football stadium which prompted some of those same jokesters to refer to the luxurious stadium as a ‘worship center’. This caused comedy writer Argus Hamilton to write, “Half the time the stadium will have football games, and the other half will have non-religious events.” Remembering the ‘rolling store’ LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor:After working as a volunteer at the Christian Service Center of Columbia County, Inc. for over 25 years I am still amazed at the work of God through the people in this community. Recently the Columbia Bank sponsored a food drive for the benefit of the CSC. The response of the citizens of our area was outstanding! The sup-ply of food donated will help meet the need of many families to have a meal on the table. All the volunteers at the Center rejoice when we see the outpouring of love and desire to help from those who care about the less fortunate. We covet the prayers and support of every-one who is blessed with enough to share. Elsie HollidayLake City To the Editor:The letter to Editor: Romney Not The Right Choice....had an error in it! The Republican Administration did NOT rob social security to pay for two wars....They did NOT pay for them! The GOP first went through a projected Clinton 4.6 trillion surplus by giving the 1% their welfare thru tax cuts. Then put Medicare D, TARP ,the Wall Street Banker Thief Bailout, and two wars on the national debt! And its policies have added 5 trillion more debt on the pres-ent administrations debt. I quote, “The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much: it is whether we provide enough for those who have little” – FDR,1936. Sir, our Social Security and Medicare are very solvent at present thanks to our President. They are not entitlements...We The People Invested and paid after tax income into them our whole working lives ... America has been Fleeced enough. I would love to see some Real Americans in our Congress. I’m tired of these ... CORPORATE TOOLS that are there now. AND DON’T REPRESENT US! Yes, I believe we are what others make us ... no man is an island into him self. One for all and all for one. Yes, like President Obama, ... I BELIEVE IN REDISTRIBUTION...! Especially if I’m in a RED STATE. Because these state receive more in Federal rev-enue redistribution than they contribute....I pray they will stop shooting themselves in the foot in the secret voting booth this 2012 election!

knew the occupant of 1338 NE Washington Street and was allowed inside. The other suspect quickly fol lowed, brandishing a hand gun. The homes occupant, whom authorities have not identified, had his own gun close at hand and fired at the men. Collins was found dead at the scene. Brown was taken to a local hospital with at least one gunshot wound, and later trans ferred to Shands at the University of Florida. As of noon Saturday Brown remained on a ven tilator and unable to com municate. According to Sgt. Ed Seifert, Columbia County Sheriffs Office public information officer, multiple surgeries are scheduled and authorities will get a statement as soon as they are able. Seifert said authorities do not plan to release the name of the victim at this point in the investigation. Until we verify the vic tim was targeted specifi cally or this was a random incident, we wont release his identity as of right now for his safety, he said. According to Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports, shortly after midnight Thursday a concerned citizen noti fied 911 that there was an injured person lying outside a home at 1338 NE Washington St. On arrival, sheriffs dep uties discovered Collins dead in the homes front doorway. There they also learned that another man was driven to the Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center with appar ent gunshot wounds. Deputies later returned to the scene to conduct an investigation. Authorities believe that around 10:30 p.m. on Thursday night, the homes occupant was indoors when the two sus pects entered. The victim told detec tives that at least one of the men was armed with a handgun. The victim armed himself with his own weapon and fired at the two suspects, striking them both. Authorities have questioned the victim about the disparity in the time frame. There was a delay in law enforcement being notified, Seifert said. We are interviewing the vic tim to determine why there was a delay in notifying law enforcement. There was no one at the scene except for the deceased person when we arrived. The victim was at the Lake City Police Department around 12:30 a.m. and they notified us he was there. Seifert said Brown was driven to the hospital by a third party and hospital personnel notified LCPD, which notified the sheriffs office. There was delay between the shooting and him getting to the hospi tal, Seifert said. The victim allowed one of the men to enter his home, authorities said. We believe the victim knew one of the suspects and he let him in the home voluntarily and the second suspect came in the home brandishing a handgun, Seifert said. We did recov er the deceased individu als weapon from inside the home. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement Crime Scene Unit responded to assist in the crime scene processing and evidence processing and were at the scene well into Friday afternoon. Detectives are still actively working with the victim and potential wit nesses to determine why the suspects entered the home armed. The victim had time to arm himself. The victim had his own weapon in the home near by, Seifert said. He was able to arm himself rather quickly. Seifert said authorities havent learned the motive behind the incident yet. The detectives are actively working the inves tigation, he said. Up to this point a motive has not been confirmed. Seifert said authori ties have not determined whether the Stand Your Ground Law will apply in this case. We are working closely with the state attorneys office and those legal ques tions will be answered as the investigation moves forward. Brown may be charged with feolny murder for the death of Collins, Seifert added. Collins was released from prison Sept. 1 after serving 18 months for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon following a Nov. 8, 2009 shooting at the American Legion hall on Bond Street. At 1 a.m. Collins fired sev eral shots outside the hall. Three people were wounded, two seriously, but all three recovered, authorities said. Collins remained on pro bation at the time of his death. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 30, 2012 Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 6A COUPON REQUIRED ...Do you have the over-priced, slow-speed Internet Blues?

of Mitchells father and made threats against her, according to Suwannee County Sheriffs Office reports. Witcher was arrested for burglary, assault and trespass following the inci dent and questioned in Mitchells disap pearance, but he has not been named a suspect, according to police. Kamries sister Kershta Mitchell said Witcher was not her boyfriend. Her sister would have told her if he was, she said. Shes my best friend, Kershta Mitchell said of her sister. We are 13 months apart, she said. She is the clos est person I have to me, she said. A Branford High School graduate, Kamrie Mitchell worked at a gas station off Highway 441 and was taking a year off from classes at Santa Fe College, her mother said. Kamrie is fun-loving and outgoing, said Stefani Mitchell, who lives in Ocala. Tuesday, Oct. 2 will be Kamries 24th birthday. Shes got a lot of friends, Mitchell said. She was a good girl, she said. She is, not was, Kershta said to her mother. As a mother, Mitchell said she is trying to stay positive, although she cant help but imagine the worst. Thats all I can think about is her out there in a field being rained on, Mitchell said. Mitchell said it is unusual for her to not hear from her daughter for more than a day or two. Me and my kids have a tight bond, she said. Mitchell said they are not telling Kamries 4-year-old daughter anything about her mothers disappearance until they know for sure, instead saying her mother is away on vacation. Were trying to keep her out of the limelight, Mitchell said. Mitchell said Kamrie missing her daughter grow every day is one of the hardest parts. Shes not here to enjoy it too, Mitchell said. Kamries mother and sister have talked to family and friends about the last time they saw her. They hope someone saw her or knows a small piece of information that can lead to her discovery. Karen Kelly said she attended the ben efit event to support the Mitchell family. We miss her, she said. Her daughter, Jessica Kelly, went to school with Kamrie Mitchell. Kamrie Mitchell often changed her hairstyle, but last month it was short and brown with highlights, her mother said. Kamrie is described as 5 feet, 3 inches tall and weighing about 130 pounds. She has blue eyes and natural blonde hair. She has Kamrie tattooed on her left foot, Grams and a butterfly on her wrist, and Layla with a footprint and a birth day tattooed on her right side. Witcher is being held in the Suwannee County Jail on charges of possession of a weapon by a felon, failure to register as a sexual offender and failure to comply with drivers license requirements for sex offender registration. Witcher was convicted in 2003 and 2005 of lewd and lascivious conduct with a child under the age of 16 in Duval County. He was also questioned in the disap pearance of a woman who went missing from Gainesville in 2008, according to Alachua County Sheriffs Office offi cials. Witcher was reportedly Heather Maccrossens boyfriend at the time she went missing. Maccrossens case is still open.

Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson and Family Research Council president Tony Perkins topped a full day of speakers at The America for Jesus 2012 prayer rally. Robertson, a former Republican candidate for president, called the election important, but didnt men tion either major political party or candidate by name. I dont care what the ACLU says or any atheists say. This nation belongs to Jesus, and were here today to reclaim his sover eignty, said Robertson, 82, who founded the Christian Coalition and Christian Broadcasting Network, and ran for president in 1988. Organizers plan anoth er prayer rally Oct. 20 in Washington, D.C., two weeks before President Barack Obama faces Republican Mitt Romney in the presidential election. Perkins asked the crowd to pray for elected officials including Obama. We pray that his eyes will be open to the truth, Perkins said. A number of event organizers, though, have been vocal critics of the Democratic president. Steve Strang, the influen tial Pentecostal publisher of Charisma magazine, which was distributed at the rally, recently wrote in a blog post that America is under threat from a radical homo sexual agenda. He also said Obama seems to be moving toward some form of European socialism. And speaker Cindy Jacobs has blamed a myste rious Arkansas bird-kill last year on Obamas repeal of the policy known as dont ask, dont tell, which allows gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military.

By FRED GOODALLAssociated PressTAMPA — EJ Manuel threw for 242 yards and one touchdown, helping No. 4 Florida State remain unbeaten with a 30-17 victory over South Florida on Saturday night. Receiver Rashad Greene got the Seminoles going with a 10-yard touchdown run, linebacker Christian Jones scored on a 12-yard fumble return and Penn State transfer Kevin Haplea had a one-yard TD recep-tion as Florida State (5-0) survived its first road test of the season by pulling away from a three-point lead with two touchdowns and a field goal in the final 5:09 of the third quarter. Three years after returning to his hometown of Tallahassee to lead USF (2-3) to a stunning 10-point upset of the Seminoles in his first college start, B.J. Daniels threw for 143 yards ran for 72 yards more and two touchdowns for the Bulls. But the game changed dramatically on the one play the senior quarterback missed after appearing to be knocked woozy by a hit at the end of a 20-yard run that was wiped out by a holding penalty. With the clock showing no time remaining in the third quarter, the officials announced the period would end with an untimed down. Freshman Matt Floyd came off the bench to replace Daniels on third-and-12 from the USF 23. The back-up was sacked at the 12 by Cornelius Carradine, who forced a fumble that Jones scooped up and returned for a touchdown. That put the Seminoles up 30-10. Daniels, who scored a one-yard run in the third quarter, returned after the sack-fumble to lead a 73-yard scoring drive that he finished with a three-yard TD burst but there would be no comeback. Manuel completed 19 of 26 passes with no intercep-tions and Dustin Hopkins kicked three field goals for Florida State, which was coming off a 49-37 victory over Clemson.

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — Fort White High’s football team spotted Union County High two touchdowns and never could recover. The visiting Tigers held off the Indians on Friday, 28-21. It was a flag-fest as the teams combined for 27 penalties that cost 226 yards. It is the first time since 2009 that Fort White (3-2) has lost back-to-back games and both Wakulla High from last week and Union County (5-0) were ranked in the top three in their respective classes. “Too many mistakes,” Indians head coach Demetric Jackson said. “We put ourselves behind and you can’t do that against a good team. We made some plays, but we didn’t make enough. We couldn’t get in a rhythm.” Fort White fumbled away the ball on its first play from scrimmage. Walter Mabrey turned it into a 12-yard touchdown run three plays later and the Tigers led 7-0. On Fort White’s next series, Princeton Alexander intercepted a pass. The ball was knocked loose on the return, but Dylan Clark picked it up and ran 15 yards to the end zone. The Indians blocked the extra point attempt, but had to chase the 13-0 deficit the rest of the night. They came as close as a couple of feet midway through the fourth quarter. Fort White’s Michael Blackmon set up the first surge when he recovered a Union County fumble at the Indians 22. Andrew Baker hit Melton Sanders for 16 yards and the two then connected on a 53-yard play. They capped their throw-and-catch drive with a 13-yard touchdown. Nathan Escalante booted the PAT to cut the lead to 13-7 with four minutes left in the first quarter. Union County pushed the margin to 14 points on a 58-yard touchdown run by Mabrey and Prince Alexander’s two-point PAT. Fort White moved to a first-and-goal on its next By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comOCALA — Columbia High reversed its role from the majority of the season as a first-half team by pull-ing off an epic comeback against Ocala’s Vanguard High on Friday. The Tigers fell behind 14-0 in the first half against the Knights before open-ing the second half with a score and scoring 21 fourthquarter points to beat Vanguard, 28-20, in Ocala. Columbia (4-1, 1-0 district) established its defense early after Drew Clark sacked quarterback Adam Robles to force a three-andout on the Knights’ first possession, but the offense failed to find a rhythm in the first half. The Tigers fell victim to two holding penalties that negated a 35-yard run from Ronald Timmons and a 40-yard fake punt run from Felix Woods in the first half. It was partially to blame for Columbia’s lack of offensive production. Vanguard’s offense didn’t start producing until the second quarter when the Knights put up 14 points. Tyronte Files broke a 44-yard run for the game’s first score with 7:18 remain-ing in the first half. Brandon Buck kicked the extra point to make it 7-0. After the Woods run was called back for holding, the Knights made it two scores in two possessions as Robles engineered a scoring drive capped off by an 11-yard pass to Zaghaun Thorton to make it 14-0 with 27 seconds left in the half. Columbia stuck to its game plan in the second half, however, and began to take control of the game. “There are moments that a team matures and grows up,” Columbia head coach Brian Allen said after the game. “This game was one of those moments.” The Tigers could have given up in the second half on the road, but instead responded with their first scoring drive. On third-and-11, quarterback Jayce Barber hit Nate Ayers on a deep post route to move the chains 34 yards ASSOCIATED PRESSFlorida State quarterback EJ Manuel fires a pass against South Florida during a football game in Tampa on Saturda y.

Fort White’s defense forced punts on Union County’s first three posses-sions of the second half. The Indians steadily gained field position as Sanders had a punt of 49 yards and Michael Mulberry returned the next Union County punt 16 yards. The Indians set up shop on the Tigers 35 and Baker hit Mulberry for 16 yards. He then connected with Sanders for 19 yards and their second touchdown of the game. Escalante came on to make the score 21-14 with 1:13 left in the third quarter. Union County answered with a seven-play touch-down drive from midfield. Prince Alexander scored from nine yards out. Mulberry ran the kickoff back 28 yards to the Indians 48. Tavaris Williams took a pitch to the right side and raced 52 yards for a touch-down. Escalante again cut the lead to seven points. Fort White’s defense held and gave the ball to the offense near midfield. On the first play Baker threw to Mulberry who made a diving catch for a 32-yard gain. Baker then scrambled for 22-plus yards, but just short of breaking the plane he lost the ball and it bounced through the end zone for a touchback. Union County reeled off a couple of first downs before punting to the Indians 26. Baker hit Shayne Newman twice for 29 yards. On fourth-and-8 with :08 on the clock, the Indians tried the lateral play that beat Wakulla last year. Baker threw the pass to Mulberry, who pitched to Williams but he was brought down at the 8-yard line as time expired. “We knew their offense was explosive and we tried to keep them on the side-lines,” said Tigers head coach Ronny Pruitt, whose team threw only one pass. “The penalties took a lot of the momentum, but a lot of them were legit and they were equal on both sides.” By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — Fort White High head coach said part of his game plan was to test the Union County High secondary. Jackson said the Tigers had not seen any passing teams and he wanted to throw the ball. That mission was accomplished as quarterback Andrew Baker had sea-son-highs in completions, attempts and yards. Baker was 17 of 26 for 249 yards. He threw his seventh and eighth touchdown pass of the season, and had one interception. Eight of Fort White’s 11 first downs came through the air, divided evenly between the two halves. Baker threw for 128 yards in the first half and 121 in the second half. “We knew they played a lot of Cover 3, so we sent four players deep and let Andrew (Baker) read it,” Indians receivers coach Isiah Phillips said. “They adjusted well and went to some Cover 2.” Baker spread the wealth among six receivers. Michael Mulberry led with five catches and totaled 76 yards. Melton Sanders was Baker’s favorite target early in the game. The two com-bined for three completions and all of the yards in Fort White’s first scoring drive of 78 yards. Sanders finished with four catches for 99 yards and two touchdowns. Union County was keying on Trey Phillips, but Fort White’s leading receiv-er still had four catches for 28 yards. Shayne Newman had a couple of key first-down catches when the Indians were trying to score late in the game. Reginald Williams and Tavaris Williamns each had a catch. Fort White had four picks against Wakulla High. “We cut down on our mistakes from last week, but we have got to cut down on them a little more,” Phillips said. “We spotted them two touchdowns from the get-go and you can’t give away 13 points early. Still, I was proud of our effort.” Fort White likes a feature running back, but there is no going back on the passing attack. So far this season, the Indians have six rushing touchdowns and nine through the air. Baker throws for 249 yards against Union County Tigers take grudge matchBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — For old time Fort White foot-ball fans, Union County is a grudge match. When the Indians were still a middle school team, Lake Butler was the biggest game on the schedule. A couple of close losses by the varsity in the last two years will bring a new generation on board. “From my standpoint, it is more of a community thing,” Fort White High head coach Demetric Jackson said this week. “It is years since were have been in the district with them, but it is definitely one of those games that gives you some bragging rights. It is one of the clos-est teams to us. We play them in most sports and we want to beat them.” On the major thoroughfares the distance between Lake Butler and Fort White is 45 miles. But, if you take the hypotenuse route that goes through Providence and Ellisville and the seven-mile cut-off at O’Leno you can travel from one town to the other much quicker. “Some of our kids were not even born then, but we told them Fort White-Lake Butler has been going on a long time,” said coach Isiah Phillips, who coached mid-dle school at Fort White when Jackson played. “It is not a bitter rivalry, but it is hard-fought. We knew it would be a good crowd. They have got good sup-port just like we do. It is a competitive thing. We saw them at FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) camp and a lot of guys know each other. It is for bragging rights. Whoever wins, the other guys are going to hear about it.” With Friday’s win, Union County has taken a 5-3 lead in the series and Tigers head coach Ronny Pruitt is 2-1 against Jackson. Pruitt understands the passion. “It is a big thing,” Pruitt said during the week. “We’re neighbors and there will be some head-banging. It is good for the kids. We compete with (Fort White) in everything we do. It is love-hate. Fort White’s administration is a class act and these are two class programs. “At the end of the night, we will pray together and go on from there.” And so they did. ——— Union Co. 21 0 0 7 — 28 Fort White 7 0 7 7 — 21 First Quarter UC—Mabrey 12 run (C.Alexander kick), 10:25 UC—Clark 15 fumble return (kick failed), 8:22 FW—Sanders 13 pass from Baker (Esclante kick), 4:00 UC—Mabrey 58 run (Prince Alexander run), 2:37 Third Quarter FW—Sanders 19 pass from Baker (Esclante kick), 1:13 Fourth Quarter UC—Prince Alexander 9 run (C.Alexander kick), 10:16 FW—T.Williams 52 run (Esclante kick), 9:59 ——— Fort White Union Co.

Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2012 5B5BSports CHS: Rallies for 28-20 victory Continued From Page 1Band set up Ronald Timmons for his first touchdown run of the night. Brayden Thomas added the extra point to make it 14-7 with 8:48 remaining in the third quarter. After the Columbia defense forced a stop, the Tigers took over and drove the ball down to the Knights’ 4-yard line, but a fourth down attempt was stopped in the backfield to give Vanguard the ball back at its 10-yard line. The Knights responded with a 90-yard pass to Thorton over freshman Roger Cray to take a 20-7 lead. “Coach (Allen) told me to have a short memory and come back and make a play later,” Cray said after the game. Down 20-7, the Tigers didn’t panic and kept going to Timmons and the power running game. Barber hit Braxton Stockton out of the back-field for 20 yards to start the drive and Timmons added another 21-yard run to move the Tigers into scoring range. Four plays later, Timmons reached the end zone for a second time to pull the Tigers within 20-14 with 9:21 remaining in the fourth quarter. Another three-and-out by the Knights gave Columbia the ball back at its 38-yard line. The next drive was all about the running game. After runs of 20 and nine yards by Timmons, Barber took a quarterback sneak, broke a tackle and ran 18 yards. Lonnie Underwood followed up with a 10-yard run and then Timmons fin-ished the drive off with a five-yard score for his third touchdown of the night. The extra point gave Columbia its first lead with 6:10 remaining in the game. When the defense hit the field, Cray earned his chance at redemption and picked off a Robles pass as the Knights committed their only turnover of the game. “It felt like I had redeemed myself,” Cray said. “When I gave up the big play, I told Felix (Woods) that I was going to get it back and make it up for us.” Cray put the offense in good position and Barber used only one pass to put another score on the board. This time, the quarterback connected with Alex Webber on a 32-yard “sluggo” route to put the Tigers up 28-20. Vanguard took possession for the final time with 5:09 remaining in the con-test and drove the ball to the Tigers’ red zone before three incomplete passes and a run for no yardage by Files gave Columbia the ball back with 1:56 remaining. Without any timeouts, Vanguard needed a three-and-out to have any chance at winning the game. The Tigers turned to their horse on the night and Timmons responded with 11 more yards to seal the game. In all, Timmons finished with 171 yards and three touchdowns. But it was all about the collaborative efforts of the Tigers in the second half. “We came out and played Tiger football,” Allen said. “We have taken another step to completing our goal and now we’ll prepare to head back and play in front of our home crowd and fans.”——— Columbia 0 0 7 21 — 28 Vanguard 0 14 0 6 — 20 Second Quarter V—Files 44 run (Buck kick), 7:18V—Thorton 11 pass from Robles (Buck kick), 0:27 Third Quarter CHS—Timmons 7 run (Thomas kick), 8:38 Fourth Quarter V—Thorton 90 pass from Robles (kick failed) 5:14 CHS—Timmons 7 run (Thomas kick) 9:21 CHS—Timmons 5 run (Thomas kick) 6:10 CHS—Webber 32 pass from Barber (Thomas kick) ——— Columbia VanguardFirst downs 19 8Rushes-yards 36-227 17-74Passing 169 207Comp-Att-Int 13-20-0 10-19-1Penalties-Yards 4-45 3-30 INDIVIDUAL STATISTICS RUSHING—Columbia, Timmons 23-171, Stockton 2-0, Underwood 7-35, Battle 1-(-6), Barber 4-21.

Timmons has career nightBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comOCALA — Columbia High’s Ronald Timmons may not be a man of many words, but he knows how to let his play do plenty of talking. The senior running back took over in the Tigers’ 28-20 win against Vanguard High in Ocala on Friday with 171 yards and three touchdowns. It was a career night against the Knights and helped the Tigers improve to 4-1 on the season. “If feels good to come out with the win,” Timmons said. “We worked too hard to lose. I felt like we were going to win on every down of the game.” It didn’t look good at the start of the game, but Timmons and the Columbia running game eventually wore down the Knights. In the second half, Timmons grew stronger and scored all three of his touchdowns. His first score came on the opening drive of the second half, where he capped off the scoring drive with 16 yards in two car-ries including a seven-yard touchdown run. “He stepped up and played like a grown man tonight,” Columbia run-ning backs coach Quinton Callum said. “Timmons runs like that on Monday through Wednesday and I always say you’ll only play as good as you practice. It showed tonight and finally clicked for him.” As Timmons clicked, so did Columbia. The running back scored three straight touchdowns for the Tigers. On the second scoring drive, Timmons scampered for 34 yards including another seven-yard score. He ran for 34 more yards on the Tigers’ next posses-sion and finished with a five-yard score to put Columbia up 21-20. It was a lead that the Tigers would retain the rest of the way. Despite a career night, Timmons didn’t want to put the win on his shoulders. “We wouldn’t go anywhere without them,” Timmons said in reference to his offensive line. “I just put my head down and run.” While Timmons stayed shy, plenty of others took notice of what he was able to accomplish in the win, including head coach Brian Allen. “He ran extremely hard,” Allen said. “I talk-ed to (offensive coordina-tor Mitch) Shoup earlier this week about what our identity was going to be. Whatever it was, we had to run it best. Tonight that was (the power running game).” Timmons may have said he doesn’t really know how to conduct interviews, but a few more nights like that and he may have to learn.

Timmons rushed for 171 yards. Line plows way for TigersBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comOCALA — They may be known for their size, but it was the endurance of the offensive line that made the difference for Columbia High in a 28-20 win against Vanguard High in Ocala on Friday. As the game wore on, the Tigers’ front began to take over the game, plow-ing the Knights front early and often in the second half to help Columbia rally to victory. “We knew that we could wear them down,” offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil said. “We wore them down last year. We’ve been through this before and we know that big-time players have to step up in big-time games. They had 600 pounds up front and we knew they would get tired.” By the end of the game, the Tigers front had pow-ered Columbia to 227 rush-ing yards. “Our guys did a fantastic job of adjusting at the half,” offensive line coach Doug Peeler said. “I can’t say how proud I am of the guys. John Sweat did a good job of pulling and picking up the linebacker. (Tight end) Shaq Johnson did a great job of picking up the Mike. I’m just proud of my kids.” After a slow start to the game, Peeler said he wasn’t worried about his unit. “We knew that we were just one block away,” he said. “The whole game, we were on the cusp. We just had to stick to our game plan and smash it.” Running backs coach Quinton Callum also took notice of the guys opening holes for his backs. “They did a great job of opening holes up for (Ronald) Timmons and (Lonnie) Underwood,” he said. “We stuck together and fought for 48 minutes. We didn’t get nervous and stuck to what we do, which is hard-nosed football.” Head coach Brian Allen credited the Tigers’ con-ditioning with helping the Columbia front wear down the Knights. “That’s what we go through those 24 workouts in the summer for,” Allen said. “That’s why we bust our butts. That’s why our workouts during school are so hard. We saw that with the success we were hav-ing running the ball in the second half.” Getting stronger as the game goes on isn’t bad for a bunch of 200-plus pounders.

U.S. takes 10-6 lead in Ryder CupAssociated PressMEDINAH, Ill. — Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley helped stake the Americans to their biggest lead in the Ryder Cup in more than 30 years. Ian Poulter, eyes bulging and fists shaking with every clutch putt, at least gave Europe some big momen-tum over the final frantic hour Saturday at Medinah. Right when it looked as if the Americans were a lock to win back the cup, Poulter birdied his last five holes to win a crucial point and keep everyone guessing. The Americans still had a big lead, 10-6, going into today’s 12 singles matches. Europe at least had hope. “The last two putts were massive,” European captain Jose Maria Olazabal said after watching Poulter stay undefeated in this Ryder Cup by rolling in one last birdie putt from 12 feet. “That gives us a chance. It’s been done before in the past. Tomorrow is a big day.” Lady Tigers cross country team wins Titusville event ASSOCIATED PRESSMichigan State’s Dion Sims (80) is unable to hang on to a pass as he is hit by Ohio State’s Rod Smith (left) and Etienne Sabino during th e fourth quarter of their game in East Lansing, Mich., on Saturday. Ohio State holds off Michigan StateAssociated PressEAST LANSING, Mich. — Braxton Miller threw for 179 yards and ran for 136, and No. 14 Ohio State held off No. 20 Michigan State 17-16 on Saturday, giv-ing Urban Meyer a win in his first Big Ten game as Buckeyes coach. Miller put Ohio State (50, 1-0) ahead 17-13 with a 63-yard touchdown pass to Devin Smith in the third quarter, and the Buckeyes’ maligned defense held Le’Veon Bell and the Michigan State running game in check. Meyer becomes the third coach to start 5-0 in his first season at Ohio State. Carol Widdoes and Earle Bruce also did it in 1944 and 1979. Michigan State (3-2, 0-1) has lost four home games in a row against Ohio State. Michigan State took a 1310 advantage in the third on a terrific individual effort by Keith Mumphery. With the ball on the Ohio State 29 after a personal foul call on the Buckeyes, Mumphery took Andrew Maxwell’s short pass and eluded four tacklers before dragging a couple more Buckeyes into the end zone. The lead didn’t last long. Miller barely picked up a first down with a run on third-and-1, then lofted a deep pass on the next play to Smith, who beat Johnny Adams along the right side-line to put Ohio State ahead to stay.No. 5 Georgia 51, Tennessee 44ATHENS, Ga. — Todd Gurley ran for three touch-downs and Keith Marshall added two as No. 5 Georgia recovered after blow-ing a 17-point lead to beat Tennessee in the highest-scoring game ever between the SEC rivals. Georgia (5-0, 3-0 SEC), which had never scored more points against the Volunteers, needed three takeaways in the final six minutes to stay unbeaten. Twice Sanders Commings intercepted Tyler Bray’s passes and in between the Tennessee quarterback was stripped from behind and the fumble was recovered by Georgia’s John Jenkins. Aaron Murray threw two third-quarter touchdown passes to Michael Bennett for the Bulldogs. Georgia led 27-10 early in the second quarter before Tennessee took the lead with 20 unanswered points. Tennessee (3-2, 0-2 SEC) took its third straight loss in the series under coach Derek Dooley, the son of Georgia’s former longtime coach Vince Dooley. Gurley had 24 carries for 130 yards. Marshall had 164 yards on only 10 carries.No. 17 Clemson 45, Boston College 31BOSTON — Tajh Boyd threw for 367 yards and three touchdowns and ran in another himself as No. 17 Clemson beat Boston College. Boyd completed 28 of 38 passes and ran 11 times for 42 yards and a TD for Clemson (4-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference). DeAndre Hopkins caught 11 passes for 197 yards for the Tigers, who bounced back after blowing a two-touchdown lead and losing 49-37 to No. 4 Florida State last week. Andre Ellington ran 25 times for 132 yards and a touchdown for Clemson. Chase Rettig, who entered the day as the lead-ing passer in the ACC, com-pleted 25 of 43 passes for 341 yards and three touch-downs. Alex Amdion caught eight passes for 193 yards and two touchdowns for the Eagles (1-3, 0-2), who led 21-17 before giving up three unanswered touchdowns. BC had come back from a 17-7 deficit to lead 21-17 on Rettig’s 31-yard pass to Amidon with 4:12 left in the first half. But Boyd hit Brandon Ford for a four-yard TD just before the end of the half, then capped Clemson’s first drive of the second half with Roderick McDowell’s 16-yard touch-down run. After Rashard Hall’s interception set the Tigers up at the BC 33 yard-line, Boyd hit Jaron Brown for 30 yards and Ellington ran it in from the 1 to make it 38-21. Miami 44, N.C. State 37 MIAMI — Gino Torretta won a Heisman Trophy at Miami. Steve Walsh, Ken Dorsey, Vinny Testaverde, Bernie Kosar, Craig Erickson, Jim Kelly, they all played a role in the school’s becoming known as “Quarterback U.” And none of them ever had a game like Stephen Morris did Saturday. Morris set school and Atlantic Coast Conference records with 566 passing yards, the last 62 of them coming on a touchdown strike to Phillip Dorsett with 19 seconds remaining, as the Hurricanes won in wild fashion for the second straight week by beating North Carolina State. His final line: 26-of-49 passing, and on an 87-degree afternoon when players from both sides were suc-cumbing to cramps, Morris had the strength to have his last throw to Dorsett sail 62 yards on the fly, saving the Hurricanes after they wast-ed a 16-point first-quarter lead and a 10-point cushion in the fourth. The teams combined for 56 first downs and 1,315 yards of offense. Miami had two players top the 100-yard receiving mark last week in its win over Georgia Tech.

LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 30, 2012 3C Q FSU Finance Professor Dr. Jerry Osteryoung is Executive Director of the Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship at Florida State University’s College of Business. E -mail is not evil. It is just a little dangerous.” ~Julie Morgenstern When email first came out, it was billed as a time-saver, but now, I think most people would agree that it is anything but that. We all get way too many emails and every person behind each and every message deserves a response, which often takes so much time. No one would argue that interruptions make us less effective. They make it hard to get anything accom-plished, and at the end of a day filled with interrup-tions, you feel terrible and unproductive. Where interruptions are concerned, email is just about the worst offender there is. The reasons are twofold. First, emails take time to answer, and second, they kill our momentum. It takes time to get back up to speed on the task you were focused on when the email came in. Though emails are an unavoidable part of our lives this day and age, we can learn to be more effi-cient with them. One way to do this is to wait for at least an hour after you get to work to answer your emails. I know this will be hard for many people, because much of the time, it seems we do not just answer our emails, we answer to them. But I promise, if you adopt this method for two weeks, you will see some great results. Here is why I think this tactic works. Starting the day with your emails puts you in a reactive mode instead of allowing you to be proactive with the things you need to accomplish. Conversely, focusing on something that is both urgent and important at the start of the day puts you in a better position to make positive progress toward your goal. At the end of the day, you get that good feel-ing that comes with having accomplished something of value. For me, when I start the day answering my emails, the day seems to drag, and I can be almost certain that I will not feel good about how I have spent my time. When I wait to check emails until I am at least an hour into my work, however, it is normally a very good day. Some other rules of thumb that can help you be more effective and efficient with your emails are as fol-lows: Try limiting the times you check and answer your emails to two or three times a day – assuming your job allows for this. Being tuned in to your email throughout the day means you will be continuously interrupted. When going through your emails, respond first to those messages that can be dealt with quickly. More involved responses should be addressed when you feel you will have more unin-terrupted time. Because we are all inundated, it is always helpful to be able to see at a glance what the email is about. When send-ing email, try to include as much information as pos-sible in the subject line. It is so refreshing to get an email with only a subject line and nothing in the mes-sage itself. Much of the time, I think people try to communicate too much information in a single email. If you have more than two main points to cover, it is better to break this up into multiple mes-sages. Now go out and make sure that you are using email in a manner that helps, not hinders, your progress and adds value to your organization or com-pany. Give these tips a try and remember to answer emails only after you have been at work for at least an hour. You can do this! Wait at least an hour before checking email ON BUSINESS Jerry Osteryoung(850) 644-3372jostery@comcast.net By MARTIN CRUTSINGERAP Economics WriterWASHINGTON — Americans boosted their spending in August even though their income barely grew. Much of the spend-ing increase went to pay higher gas prices, which may have forced consum-ers to cut back elsewhere. The Commerce Department said Friday that consumer spending rose 0.5 percent in August from July. It was the big-gest jump since February. Gas prices rose nearly 50 cents per gallon in July and August, but have since leveled off. Excluding the impact of higher gas pric-es and other price gains, spending ticked up only 0.1 percent last month. Income grew only 0.1 percent, too. But after accounting for inflation and deducting taxes, income actually fell 0.3 percent — the poorest performance since November. The increase in prices and slower growth in pay forced people to save less. “The US personal income and spending data for August are worse than the headline figures sug-gest and indicate that sub-dued jobs growth is hitting incomes,” said Paul Dales, senior U.S. The increase “was largely due to extra spending caused by the surge in gasoline prices.” High unemployment and weak wage growth have kept Americans from spend-ing more freely, which has held back growth. Consumer spending drives nearly 70 percent of eco-nomic activity. The economy grew at an annual rate of 1.3 percent in the April-June quarter, the government reported Tuesday. Most economists say growth rate will likely hover around 2 percent in the July-September quar-ter, a rate that is far too weak to lower the unem-ployment rate. “American household spending and income remain weak, indicating continued subpar growth,” said Sal Gautieri, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets. The combination of weak income growth and a big jump in spending meant that households saved less. The saving rate dropped to 3.7 percent of after-tax income in August, down from 4.1 percent in July. A price gauge tied to consumer spending jumped 0.4 percent, reflecting the rise in energy prices. It was the biggest one-month jump since March 2011. Excluding food and energy, prices barely changed. Over the past year, prices exclud-ing food and energy rose only 1.6 percent, well below the Federal Reserve’s 2 percent inflation target. Earlier this month, the government released a mixed report on retail spending that showed that consumers are feel-ing pinched by higher gas prices. Consumers spent 0.9 percent more at retail busi-nesses in August from July. But excluding the impact of gas prices and a size-able increase in auto sales, retail sales rose just 0.1 percent. The retail sales report showed Americans cut back on clothing, elec-tronics and at general mer-chandise outlets. There have been some positive signs that spending could pick up in September, most notably a pair of posi-tive consumer confidence surveys released this week. The University of Michigan’s index released Friday showed consumer sentiment rose this month to its second-highest level in nearly five years. A separate survey from the Conference Board said con-sumer confidence jumped in September to its highest level since February. Stock prices are higher. Steady gains in home prices, along with record-low mortgage rates, have helped fuel a modest recov-ery in the housing market. And a report Thursday offered some hope that the job market will strengthen. Weekly applications for unemployment benefits plunged 26,000 to a sea-sonally adjusted 359,000. That’s the lowest level in two months. Still, most economists expect only modest hiring gains when the government releases the September employment report next week. The forecast is that employers added roughly 100,000 jobs, about the same as in August.Higher gas costs push US consumer spending up ASSOCIATED PRESSA shopper pushes a cart through the clearance section o f a store in Chicago.

By RYAN NAKASHIMAAP Business WriterLOS ANGELES — Phil Orlins knows everything about producing TV in three dimensions. The ESPN producer has cap-tured the undulating greens of Augusta National and the flying motor bikes of the X-Games for ESPN’s 3-D channel. But he can only guess how well his shows resonate with view-ers. That’s because 3-D audiences are so small they can’t be measured by Nielsen’s rating system. “The feedback on The Masters was fast and furious. You could go on Twitter at any moment, and there’d be comments com-ing in every minute about 3-D coverage,” said Orlins while giving a tour of a production truck at this summer’s X-Games. “But then you go to some other events where it’s pretty quiet.” Orlins’ problem is that fewer than 115,000 American homes are tuned into 3-D channels at any one time. That’s less than a hundredth of the 20.2 million-strong audience that saw television’s highest-rated show “NCIS” this week. 3-D viewership is so tiny that The Nielsen Co.’s methods are unable to cap-ture any meaningful data about viewers’ program-ming preferences. ESPN 3D is one of nine 3-D channels that launched in the years following the late 2009 release of James Cameron’s “Avatar.” The 3-D blockbuster won three Oscars and ranks as the highest-grossing film of all time, garnering $2.8 billion at the global box office. “Avatar” was supposed to change everything. Enthusiastic television executives expected the movie to spur 3-D’s tran-sition to American living rooms, boosting sales of new TVs and giving people a reason to pay more for 3-D channels. That never happened.Only 2 percent of TVs in the U.S. are able to show 3-D programming, accord-ing to the most recent data from research firm IHS Screen Digest. That’s about 6.9 million sets out of 331 million. After this year’s Christmas buying rush, IHS expects the num-ber of 3-D-capable televi-sions installed in homes to jump to 19.3 million, mostly because 3-D viewing tech-nology is being built into most new large-screen TVs. But even with the jump, 3-D TVs will amount to less than 6 percent of all sets. “We’ve learned with every passing day that we were ahead of the curve further than we thought we were,” said Bryan Burns, the business leader for ESPN 3D. “We hit the on-ramp earlier than we real-ized at the time.” Why 3-D television hasn’t become a national craze is a mystery to some in the industry, consider-ing the wide acceptance of 3-D movies at theaters. But 3-D content is expensive to produce, and as a result there’s not a lot of it. Some of the content isn’t very good. Some people find the special glasses required for 3-D TV uncomfortable. And many wonder whether it’s worth the extra cost. “It was kind of fascinating to me, but it’s not all there,” said Tim Carter, a graphic designer in Sarasota, Fla., who bought a large, high-end 3-D TV with other high-end features last year for about $1,800. Today, the average 42inch 3-D television costs about $900, according to IHS. They contain a high-tech chip and software that translates 3-D video feeds into the rightand left-eye images that create the 3-D effect for people wearing the right glasses. In some cases, special glasses can cost an extra $50 or so. Watching home movies on disc requires a 3-D Blu-ray player that can cost another $120 and each disc set purchase runs around $27, according to IHS. (3-D movies are usually bundled with other discs.) While operators like DirecTV and Comcast Corp. don’t charge spe-cifically for channels like ESPN 3D, they are gener-ally bundled in packages that require other spend-ing. At DirecTV that means a $200 high-definition digi-tal video recorder and $10 per month for HD service. For Comcast, that means a minimum $65-per-month digital starter package with HD service costing another $10 a month. All that for the privilege of watching 3-D at home in your pajamas. Due to the cost, Carter said he’s mainly sampled free 3-D movie trailers provided on-demand by his cable TV company. A trailer for the latest “Transformers” movie didn’t make him more enthused. “One of the robots pops out at you, and it felt forced.” ‘’It’s not con-sistent,” he said, noting that 3-D effects aren’t notice-able much of the time. He said he’s not knocking the technology, he’s just disap-pointed with the way it’s being used. Nowadays, 3-D is just one feature on TVs with bigger screens. It is usu-ally grouped with other upgrades that include motion-smoothing tech-nology and light-emitting diodes that are smaller, more energy efficient and display color contrast bet-ter than traditional liquid crystal display sets. It’s dif-ficult to isolate how much 3-D adds to the price tag of an individual set because of this bundling, but accord-ing to IHS the average 42-inch set with 3-D is about $200 more than a similar-sized one without. Some 3-D TVs, however, can be found for cheaper than oth-ers of the same size. “There’s very little direct consumer demand,” said Tom Morrod, a TV tech-nology analyst with IHS in London. Some consumers buy TVs which happen to have 3-D, but they don’t bother to get the glasses needed to watch them, he said. “They don’t see a value with it. Consumers associ-ate value right now with screen size and very few other features.” Sluggish demand for 3D on TV has caused pro-grammers to hit pause on rolling out new shows and channels. In June, DirecTV turned its 24-hour channel, n3D, into a part-time network that only shows special event programming like the Olympics, in part to avoid the heavy use of reruns caused by a lack of new material. Last year, AT&T dropped ESPN 3D from its lineup, saying the $10 per month cost to subscribers wasn’t justified given low demand. So far, ESPN 3D is the most aggressive network in terms of shooting origi-nal 3-D productions. It has about 140 per year. It also has the widest distribution. By LINDA A. JOHNSONAP Business WriterThe Food and Drug Administration is warning U.S. consumers that the vast majority of Internet pharmacies are fraudulent and likely are selling coun-terfeit drugs that could harm them. The agency on Friday launched a national cam-paign, called BeSafeRx, to alert the public to the danger, amid evidence that more people are shopping for their medicine online, looking for savings and convenience. Instead, they’re likely to get fake drugs that are con-taminated, are past their expiration date or contain no active ingredient, the wrong amount of active ingredient or even toxic substances such as arsenic and rat poison. They could sicken or kill people, cause them to develop a resis-tance to their real medi-cine, cause new side effects or trigger harmful interac-tions with other medica-tions being taken. “Our goal is to increase awareness,” FDA Commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg told The Associated Press, “not to scare people away from online pharmacies. We want them to use appropri-ate pharmacies.” That means pharmacies that are located in the U.S., are licensed by the phar-macy board in the patient’s state and have a licensed pharmacist available to answer questions. In addi-tion, the pharmacy must require a valid doctor’s pre-scription for the medicine. Online drugstores that claim none is needed, or that the site’s doctor can write a prescription after the customer answers some questions, are break-ing the law. Research by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy found that of thousands of online phar-macies it reviewed, only about 3 percent follow state and federal laws.

LIFE Sunday, September 30, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D Story ideas?ContactRobert BridgesEditor754-0428rbridges@lakecityreporter.com Lake City Reporter'/,)(Genie Norman and Mary Kay HollingsworthTasteBuddiesLakeCity@gmail.com TASTE BUDDIES T his is my first column and I’m so excited! I absolutely love to travel and I love to write about it. I especially like road trips. About five years ago, while riding from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, I started my travel journal. I never thought much about it, just wanted to get the memories and thoughts down, thinking I could go back one day and read about it. Traveling is my passion, but it doesn’t pay the bills. Writing about it has been a bonus. I would mostly share my journal — or blog as I often call it — with family and friends. I would recap each day from whatever trip I was on, download the pictures from that day and send it back home. I loved shar-ing my stories and as it turns out they loved hear-ing about it. Often, if I was too tired to write at night, I’d get emails the next day ask-ing, “What happened?” When speaking to family and friends on the phone, they would ask if I’d writ-ten the blog yet because they wanted to read it before they went to bed, or planned to get up early the next morning to make time to read it before work. It was exciting to know they enjoyed it so much, and I’d laugh because it also put the pressure on to get all of my thoughts down every day. After receiving such positive feedback from the journal entries through the years and along the way, some saying how I should write for travel magazines and the like, I thought, “Why not?” It took a lot of thought and courage, but I contact-ed Todd Wilson, publisher of the Lake City Reporter, and pleaded my case. In addition to some sample pages from the last road trip I took, I also shared the scrapbook I made. Yep, that’s something else I started doing after my first cross country road trip. So often we take photos and don’t do anything with them, especially in the digital world we live in. I know people who haven’t downloaded the pictures off of their cam-eras from a year ago, or they are downloaded onto their computers, but often not looked at again. So as you can see, Todd was very encouraging and here I am introducing myself and my journeys. Road trips are my favorite type of travel, but I also love the quick trip for a long weekend to New York City for good dinners, new shows and to explore new neighbor-hoods. I love the quiet drive up to Charleston for a relax-ing weekend to just chill out. The planning of my trips is as exciting to me as tak-ing the trip. I do a whole lot of research in advance (and am often made fun of for it) and it absolutely builds the anticipation. Not only can’t I wait for the next trip, but tend to start planning another one before completing the first one – this makes my hus-band a little crazy. And now, I can’t wait to share my stories with all of you. R ecently we had lunch at the new spot in Welborn, Junior’s Place. It opened in August at the previous location of the Whistle Stop Caf. This location has been there for years starting out as a “filling station” (wonder how many remember calling them that?). It has been added to over the years and Junior’s now seats 40. You feel very welcomed when you walk in the door. Tables are covered in red checked cloths, the room has been fresh-ly painted and is deco-rated in a country mish-mash of items including a large chandelier, wash tubs, horseshoes, farm equipment, pictures and a saddle. A very comfort-able feeling. The waitress couldn’t have been more atten-tive or helpful. There is a daily selection of items on special. The day we visited the special was barbeque chicken or meatloaf with your choice of mustard greens, green beans, mashed potatoes, okra/tomatoes and corn pudding. Other menu selections include sand-wiches, country fried chicken or steak, ham steak, shrimp, grouper, pork chops, chicken strips, numerous side dishes and desserts. Sandwiches are served with fries and dinners include two sides. We chose potato skin appetizer ($4.95) to start with. It was cut into four strips topped with cheese, real bacon and scallions. Sour cream on the side made this a win-ner. The Philly Steak and Cheese sandwich ($6.99) was plentiful on the warm roll and is one to repeat at another visit. The sweet potato fries were hot and cooked perfectly. The side salad with ranch was fresh and tasty. Decided to try the ham-burger ($4.99) since you can tell a lot about a place based on their burgers. Although served plain, you can have anything you want to dress it up. The meat is freshly ground and handmade into a patty and grilled. Very tasty and good. The side order of corn pud-ding was the star of the meal. It was homemade, a generous serving and just plain delicious. We didn’t have room for des-sert but did learn that they are all made on the premise. Breakfast is served daily and includes all the usual breakfast choices. Several sounded especially appealing e.g. sau-sage and cheese omelet ($4.59), Veggie omelet Taste Buddies head to Wellborn TASTE continued on 3DFor the love of the open road and writing about it Q Sandy Kishton is a freelance travel writer who lives in Lake City.

By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comW ith a quick dip back into chilly water, local residents will have a new con-nection to God and the springs. The seventh annual Baptism Sunday at Ichetucknee Springs will be Sunday, Oct. 7. Baptism Sunday was designed to unify various Christian denominations in the county and spot-light the spiring so people of faith can be good stewards for the springs, Wheeler said. Florida photographer John Moran is scheduled to photograph the bap-tisms, said John Wheeler, an event organizer. Over the years several photographers have recorded the baptisms, but this is the first time Moran has attended, Wheeler said. Representing rebirth, baptism is extra special at a place like the springs, he said. While the springs are just water, “there is a special spirit there,” Wheeler said. The first baptisms in Florida occurred over 500 years ago in the springs when the Spanish mis-sionaries baptized Native Americans, he said. “When I read that it was a traditional baptism place years ago, I said ‘Why can’t we do it today?’” he said. A call to the state park revealed churches were welcome to host baptisms there. Christian Heritage Church, First Presbyterian Church and Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church were the first three to partici-pate in 2005. This year, Wheeler expects six to eight churches to participate, bringing about 100 people together. Although springs may be a way of life for locals, area visitors cannot believe how beautiful they are, he said. “They literally think they are in heaven when they see those waters,” Wheeler said. Past participants of Baptism Sunday “really look back on that as a spe-cial time,” he said. Other churches have started to make springs baptism a habit outside on the once-a-year event, he Rebirth in the springs said. “Just like the waters from the aquifer over all parts of the county coalesce there, the faiths come together,” he said. “It turns out to be a beau-tiful event,” he said. Churches of different races and denominations come together, believing in the same thing and united at the springs, Wheeler said. While each church proceeds with the process a bit differently, most peo-ple are getting baptized for the first time, he said. “It’s every emotional. There’s a oneness to it,” Wheeler said. “I think it’s a beautiful thing, on any number of levels,” Moran said. “I believe we are creatures of spirit. We are drawn to the water,” he said. To protect the springs there has to be a love of the water, born of con-nection, Moran said. Being baptized in the springs builds a powerful connection. Moran may use the photos in his upcom-ing exhibit at the florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville called Springs Eternal: Florida’s Fragile Fountains of Youth. “I’m delighted to see an event that reflects the strong heritage we have with the waters of North Florida,” he said. Baptism Sunday starts at 2 p.m. at the Ichetucknee Springs State Park, North Entrance. Those attending should brings lawnchairs and their favorite des-sert. Each pastor will baptize his own church members, which should last around 45 minutes, Wheeler said. There will be gospel songs, a ground reaffir-mation of baptismal vows and a dessert social. All churches and denomina-tions are welcome. Participants do not have to be members of a church to enjoy the event. “If you would like to be baptized, we can arrange that,” Wheeler said. Churches or individuals interested in joining should contact Wheeler at 752-8660.


2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2012 Page Editor: Laura Hampson, 754-0427 Cox-Gerbec Micahel and Velina Cox of Lake City announce the engagement and approach ing marriage of their daugh ter, Bethany Jean Cox, to Matthew Monroe Gerbec, son of Bill and Wendy Moon of Fort White and Tom Gerbec of North Carolina. The bride is also the grand daughter of the late Carl Peeler, Pauline Peeler Murray and James D. Cox. The wedding is planned for Saturday, October 13 at 5 p.m. at the Lake City Seventh Day Adventist Church, 148 SW Seminole Terrance. The reception will follow at the Columbia County Fairgrounds Banquet Hall. The bride-elect is a 2009 graduate of Fort White High School. She currently works for Dr. Alex Gonzales as a Medical Assitant at his Internal Medicine office. The future groom is employee at Sysco Food Distribution Center in Alachua. All friends and family are invited. Noah Francis Wallace Jack and Deborah Tyre Wallace of Mission, Kan. are proud to announce the birth of their son, Noah Francis, on Sept. 24. He weighed 8 pounds, 4 ounces. He joins brother Logan Henry, 3. Maternal grandparents are Dorothy Tyre Hopson and the late James Henry Tyre. John Francis Sappington III Brittany DuKawicz and John Sappington of Lake City announce the birth of their son, John Francis Sappington III on Sept. 21 at Shands Lake Shore in Lake City. He weighed 8 pounds, 2 ounces and mea sured 20 inches. John joins sibling Cayden Jacob Sappington, 4. Grandparents are Debi Dukawicz, Morris Albritton and Darlene Sappington. Great-grandparent is Ann Pope. Birth announcements Wedding announcement By TODD RICHMOND Associated Press MADISON, Wis. They slink through the woods in camouflage and face paint, armed with tire irons, screwdrivers and hoes, seeking a plant that looks like a cross between a Virginia creeper and poi son ivy. Theyre the new breed of ginseng diggers, a rough and tumble lot looking to parlay rising Asian demand for the increasingly rare plants roots into a fast buck. Amid a sluggish econ omy, police say, more diggers are pushing into the backcountry from the upper Mississippi River to the Smoky Mountains in search of wild ginseng, eschewing harvest per mits, ripping up even the smallest plants and ignor ing property lines. Their slash-and-burn tac tics have left property own ers enraged and biologists worried about the slowgrowing plants long-term survival. In Ohio prosecu tors charged one landown er with gunning down a man he believed was steal ing ginseng. Were not finding big, healthy populations. It was there, and a lot of it has been taken, said Nora Murdock, an ecologist with the National Park Service who monitors plant popula tions in four parks across the southeastern U.S. Its like taking bricks out of a building. You might not feel the first brick ... but sooner or later youre going to pull out too many. Ginseng, a long-stemmed plant with five leaves and distinctive red berries, long has been coveted in many Asian cultures because the plants gnarly, multi pronged root is believed to have medicinal properties that help improve every thing from memory to erectile dysfunction. And the wild roots are believed to be more potent than cul tivated roots. The plant takes years to mature, and it has been har vested to the edge of extinc tion in China. Ginseng buy ers have turned to North America, where the plant can be found from north eastern Canada through the eastern U.S. Conscious of the har vesting pressure, the Convention of International Trade of Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora imposed restrictions on exports in 1975. Under those terms, states certi fy ginseng has been har vested legally and export ers must obtain a federal permit. Most states have restricted ginseng harvest to a few months in the fall and require diggers to obtain permits during that period. Its illegal to harvest ginseng from any national park and most national for ests in the southeast. The price of wild ginseng roots has climbed in the last decade. Now domestic buyers pay $500 to $600 per pound compared with about $50 per pound of cul tivated roots. Law enforce ment officials say the prices have pushed people looking for quick money into the woods. Its lucrative to spend a day in the woods and walk out with $500 of ginseng in a bag when you dont have a job, said Wisconsin conservation warden Ed McCann. Every one of these plants is like looking at a $5 or $10 bill. Clad at times in camou flage, face masks and face paint to blend in, poachers trod through the under brush with makeshift tools such as tire irons and screwdrivers look ing for ginseng, police said. They dont have any qualms about digging up immature roots; they want to get at the plants before other poachers or before the states harvest season begins. But that ensures the plants wont reproduce and feeds a cycle of dwin dling populations and ris ing prices. And poachers know how to get around the conser vation regulations. Theyll dig ginseng out of season to get a jump on competi tors and take it to dealers when the season opens or purchase permits after the fact. In other cases dealers just look the other way, said John Welke, a Wisconsin conservation warden. Its difficult to get a clear picture of the extent of poaching in the U.S. vio lation statistics are spread across layers of state and federal jurisdictions, but law enforcement officials and biologists across the eastern half of the coun try told The Associated Press they believe its on the rise. In Wisconsin, the lead ing U.S. producer of com mercially grown ginseng, wildlife officials say viola tions such as harvesting wild ginseng without a per mit or harvesting out of season tripled from 12 in 2007 to 36 last year. Ohio wildlife authori ties have made 100 arrests between 2008 and last year for various ginseng viola tions ranging from digging without permission to dig ging or buying out of sea son. A team of West Virginia University researchers counted 30 ginseng popu lations across New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Indiana, Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia between 1998 and 2009. The team reported that of the 368 plants they discovered had been harvested, only five were taken legally. Its very difficult to catch a poacher, said U.S. Forest Service botanist Gary Kauffman. You could put everything in a back pack and your hands are clean, nobody really knows what youre doing. A grand jury in south eastern Ohio charged 78year-old Joseph Kutter of New Paris with killing a man whom Kutter claimed had trespassed onto his property to poach gin seng. According to court documents, Kutter shot Bobby Jo Grubbs with an assault rifle in May and hid his body in a mulch pile. Kutters attorneys didnt return messages seeking comment. Sara Souther, a University of Wisconsin-Madison bot anist who worked on the West Virginia University ginseng team, said multiple times she has encountered poachers trying to harvest the plant. These are intimidating people, Souther said. You can tell these men are not hiking. If youre out there and witness an illegal act, you dont know what peo ple will do. Ginseng poachers take to the woods as prices soar ASSOCIATED PRESS Don Dobbs, owner of Buckhorn Ginseng, holds a wild ginseng root on in Richland Center, Wis. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is getting more complaints about people trespassing to take the root, which can be worth as much as $600 a pound. By J.M. HIRSCH AP Food Editor Almost by definition, beef stew isnt a weeknightfriendly dish. Thats mostly a matter of the meat. Stew meat gener ally is tough and requires a long simmer to become tender. But who has time for a long simmer at the end of a long day at work? But stews are so right for the season, it seemed a shame to give them up. Sure, you could plan ahead and make them on the weekend. But Im guessing that Im not the only person whose weekends rarely are relaxed enough to spend much time contemplating my dinners for the rest of the week. Instead, I decided to come up with a beef stew that could be tossed togeth er on a weeknight. It was easier than I expected. The first step was replac ing the meat. Stew meat was right out. But tender sirloin tips worked perfectly. But it was important to adapt the cooking technique to this cut of meat. If I just tossed it into the pot and let it cook with the rest of the ingredients, they would end up tough from over cooking. But I didnt want to add them only at the end, either, as this would prevent browning. The solution was brown ing the meat first, then set ting it aside while the other ingredients cooked. The meat then was returned to pot toward the end of cook ing. The result was perfect taste and texture. SPEEDY BEEF AND BUTTERNUT STEW Start to finish: 45 minutes (15 minutes active) Servings: 6 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 1/2 pounds sirloin beef tips, cut into 1-inch chunks 3 cups cubed butternut squash (1/2-inch cubes) 1 cup baby carrots, halved 1 large yellow onion, diced 2 cloves garlic, minced 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes 2 cups beef broth 1 teaspoon smoked paprika 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder Salt and ground black pepper In a large saucepan over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the beef, in batches if needed to avoid crowding the pan, and cook, turning, until browned on all sides but still rare at the center, about 5 minutes. Use a slot ted spoon to transfer the beef to a plate. Return the saucepan to the heat and add the squash and carrots. If the pan is too dry to easily saute the vegetables, you can add a splash of olive oil. Saute until the squash begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the onion and garlic, then continue to cook until the onion is tender, about another 6 minutes. Add the tomatoes, broth, paprika, thyme and mustard powder. Bring to a simmer and cook until the carrots and squash are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Return the beef to the pot, as well as any juices that have accumulated on the plate. Simmer for 5 minutes, then season with salt and pepper.

Page Editor: Laura Hampson, 754-0427 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2012 3D'/,)(By MAE ANDERSONAP Business WriterNEW YORK — Nonfat cheese that tastes like plas-tic. Low-calorie soda that leaves a bitter aftertaste. Sugar-free brownies that crumble like Styrofoam. Dieters have learned an important lesson: When you take the fat and calo-ries out of your favorite treats, you sometimes have to say goodbye to the taste too. But snack brands like Dreyer’s/Edy’s ice cream, Hershey’s chocolate and Lay’s potato chips are try-ing to solve this age-old dieter’s dilemma by rolling out so-mid-calorie good-ies that have more fat and calories than the snacks of earlier diet crazes but less than the original ver-sions. They’re following the lead of soda companies like Pepsi and Dr Pepper that introduced mid-calorie drinks last year. It’s hard to isolate sales of mid-calorie snacks since they also usually have reduced fat, or other healthy attributes like reduced sodium. But sales of all foods and drinks in which the amount of things like fat, sugar, salt, carbo-hydrates have been actively reduced during production have risen 16 percent to $51.72 billion since 2006, according to research firm Euromonitor International. The mid-calorie trend is hitting at a time when com-panies that make sugary and salty treats are being blamed for the country’s expanding waistlines. The problem is that the same things that make snacks taste good — sugar, salt, calories — also make them fattening. And many Americans don’t want to sacrifice taste at snack time. Shaving a few calo-ries enables companies to market their cakes, cookies and chips as healthier with-out the stigma of bad taste that goes along with some low-fat products. It’s just the kind of marketing that might attract Monica Olivas. She says she wants to lead a healthy lifestyle, including curbing her fat and caloric intake as much as possible. But most low-fat foods just don’t appeal to her. “Sometimes companies go too far and take out all the fat — and all the flavor,” says Olivas, a 29-year-old recruiter from Pico Rivera, Calif.A NEW ‘LIGHT’The mid-calorie trend is a toned-down version of the “light” craze that started in the 1990s. Back then, “low fat” or “no fat” was all the rage. But the products often fizzled. For instance, McDonald’s rolled out the McLean Deluxe, a low-fat burger, in 1991. But the burger, which was in part made with sea-weed, had dismal sales. It disappeared from restau-rants within five years. Similarly, Lay’s in 1998 introduced Wow fat-free potato chips that use fat substitute Olestra. But the ick factor trumped healthi-ness when the Food and Drug Administration said the chips had to come with a warning that Olestra may cause abdominal cramp-ing, loose stools, and that it inhibits the absorption of some vitamins and other nutrients. The FDA dropped the requirement for the label in 2004 after studying the matter. The chips were renamed “Light,” but sales have not recovered. “Originally, a lot of the diet stuff just wasn’t good,” says Richard George, chair of the department of food marketing at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia. “People would say you could throw away contents and eat the box. But they’ve gotten better.” The new era of diet food started in the last decade. In 2007, compa-nies began offering 100-calorie packs of popular snacks like Oreos cookies and Twinkies cakes. That’s when brands started put-ting their focus on reduc-ing calories — without any flavor change. Turns out, there’s some science behind all this calo-rie slashing. Nutritionists say it’s not necessary to cut out all the “junk” foods in your cupboard or to take all the fat or calories out of them. Reducing a nominal number of calories in your diet each day — even from that morning coffee run or afternoon visit to the vending machine for chips — is an effective way to battle obesity, says David Levitsky, professor of nutri-tional sciences at Cornell University. He says “if you typically have a 200-calorie cookie and you have a 160-calo-rie cookie instead” it won’t make you hungrier at the next meal. And since obe-sity can be caused by as few as 20 excess calories a day, Levitsky says cutting a few at each meal makes a big difference. But in order for that to work you have to eat the snacks in moderation. It becomes a problem when people overestimate how much more they can eat of nonfat ice cream or low-calorie chips, says Kelly Brownell, a nutritionist at Yale University. “If consumption of ice cream and potato chips does not increase and peo-ple eat somewhat better versions, the outcome will be good,” Brownell says.TASTE IS KEYFirst, companies have to convince dieters that their mid-calorie snacks are not only healthy, but tasty too. Flavor is a key when Betty Kranzdorf, 55, con-siders eating foods with lower calories. She says she avoids reduced-calorie English muffins (“horrible texture and taste”) but she’ll pick up reduced-fat Pringles chips because she can’t tell the difference between those and the originals. “I won’t buy ‘low cal’ just because it’s ‘low-cal,’” says Kranzdorf, a paralegal from New York. “If the food I’m eating isn’t satisfying, then I’ll just go eat something that is more to my liking later — which defeats the whole purpose.” With that in mind, Hershey’s in June intro-duced Simple Pleasures, chocolate with 30 percent less fat. A serving size of six pieces equals 180 calories and 8 grams of fat — that’s 30 calories and 5 grams of fat less than the original Hershey’s chocolate bar. The company is hoping the deficit is enough to lure chocolate lovers who want to eat healthier. Hershey’s developed the product after consumer research revealed that the No. 1 barrier for people to buy chocolate is the “per-ceived negative health ben-efits,” says spokeswoman Anna Lingeris. “We’re hearing more and more that customers want healthier options as a bal-anced lifestyle becomes a more prevalent way of liv-ing,” Lingeris says. Similarly, Lay’s in July rolled out two new flavors of its Kettle Cooked potato chips with 40 percent less fat. The brand, which fries chips in small batches so as to use less oil than the con-tinuous frying process for regular chips, introduced “Applewood Smoked BBQ” and “Sun-Dried Tomato and Parmesan.” The company says it was able to lower the calories and fat without sacrific-ing taste: Regular Kettle Cooked chips have 160 calories and 9 grams of fat, while the reduced-fat ver-sions have 130 calories and 6 grams of fat. “The strategy behind mid-calorie offerings is finding the happy space between zero fat and regu-lar products,” says Tony Matta, vice president of marketing for Frito Lay, which makes Lay’s chip brands. But sometimes finding the right balance isn’t enough — marketing can be key. Dreyer’s/Edy’s (it’s called Dreyer’s on the West Coast and Edy’s on the East) learned that the hard way. The company in May rolled out an ad campaign that emphasizes that Slow Churned ice cream is half the fat and one third of the calories of regular ice cream — but the compa-ny avoids using the word “light.” Why? Because when Dreyer’s/Edy’s began selling Slow Churned ice cream in 2004, the company labeled the product “light.” But ice cream buyers didn’t take to the word, and the company stopped advertis-ing the brand using it. In fact, the company eventual-ly stopped advertising the product altogether after 2007, although it still sold it in stores. “’Light’ used to be a word that consumers had a lot of negative perception ... because of the taste experi-ence,” Eiseman says. “For ice cream, taste is king, first and foremost ... they’d rather have great taste and half the fat, rather than OK taste and no fat.” The new packaging and ad campaign for the prod-uct, which has about 120 calories and 4.5 grams of fat compared with 150 calories and 8 grams of fat in regu-lar Dreyer’s mint chocolate chip, has the tagline “1/2 the Fat, 1/3 Fewer Calories than Regular Ice cream.” (The company acknowl-edges that 4.5 grams of fat is not quite “half” of 8 grams of fat, but Dreyer’s/Edy’s brand manager Jen Eiseman says the market-ing campaign took a the liberty of rounding in order to focus on the healthier aspects of the slow-churn ice cream. “There’s been a shift culturally from extreme diet-ing ... and giving up food altogether,” Eiseman says. “Now it’s not about giv-ing things up, but finding healthier ways of having it all.” Want some taste with that ice cream? ASSOCIATED PRESSThis product image provided by Dreyer’s/Edy’s Ice Cream shows packaging which displays a “1/2 the Fat” label. Di eters know that if you take the fat and calories out of your favori te treats, you sometimes have to say goodbye to the taste too. By SUE MANNINGAssociated PressLOS ANGELES — For puppies and kittens, saize really does matter. Shelters say smaller animals get adopted faster, and animal experts say the runt of a litter tends to be better protected by the mother. Pet owners-to-be tend to heap attention on them, since they’re attracted to big heads on little bodies. “Humans are drawn to animals or beings of any kind whose proportion of eyes to head is large,” said Dr. Julie Meadows, a faculty veterinarian at the William R. Pritchard Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital at the University of California, Davis. “It’s why we all coo when we look” at babies, whether they’re human or animal. For runts destined to become family pets, their size is their greatest risk before birth but also their greatest appeal after birth. “It’s the underdog, undercat thing,” said Gayle Guthrie, founder-director of Stray Love Foundation in Magnolia Springs, Ala. At Stray Love, smaller rescue dogs are adopted five times faster than the larger ones. Meadows said that could be a result of the growing popularity of so-called pocket puppies — teacup dogs bred to be small and stay small. “Pet owners are looking for that really cute runt equivalent, almost like we are selecting for runted creatures because we like those little things that can ride around in our purses and strollers and never weigh more than 5 pounds,” Meadows said. A litter has only one true runt, but not every litter will have a runt. Litter-bearing mothers have Y-shaped uteruses. Those at the center of the Y get the least amount of food and have the greatest chance of being runts, while those closest to the mother’s blood supply get the most nourishment and have the highest birth weights, Meadows said. When runts are born, “they have to fight harder because they are small, weak, and others often pick on them or push them away from their food source. All of these things tend to press on the moth-er in many of us to protect them,” Guthrie said. In most cases, if the runt of a litter makes it to six to eight weeks, it will proba-bly survive and likely grow close to full size, experts said. Cheddar, the runted kitten of an abandoned lit-ter that Kristin Ramsdell fostered for the Black and Orange Cat Foundation, now weighs more than 7 pounds. He weighed less than half a pound when he was found in June 2011 with the rest of his 8-week-old littermates. At 8 weeks, a kitten should weigh between 1.5 and 2 pounds, Ramsdell said. “I stayed up for three straight days with him, giv-ing him fluids and antibiot-ics, warming him with IV bags heated in the micro-wave, using a humidifier and watching him round-the-clock. I didn’t think he would make it,” she said. Cheddar and one of his siblings, Colby, have been adopted by a Philadelphia family and are thriving, Ramsdell said. That special attention required to bring some runts to health can create a special bond. Cat owner Melissa Hadaway took the runt of a litter and its sister to her home in Winder, Ga. She recalled how six years ago, Annie, the runt, “was the littlest and bravest. She fought very hard to get her share.” Kathy Covey of the Cat Adoption Team in Sherwood, Ore., said a kit-ten runt weighed 11 ounces when he arrived in August at 6? weeks old. “His eyes and ears were too big for his face, he had a kidney infection. He was on fluids, syringe feeding, pain meds and antibiotics. When you picked him up, you could feel each of his ribs. But he was a lover, snuggling in to you when-ever you showed any affec-tion and purring the whole time,” she said. Little Big Burger worked hard and gained a pound in two weeks, Covey said. He has to stay on antibiot-ics for his kidneys but his prognosis is improving. “He’s not giving up, so I’m not,” she said. Runts aren’t welcomed everywhere, though. Wilbur, the classic runted pig in the children’s book “Charlotte’s Web,” was saved from slaughter with the help of a spider, but animal agriculture and food producers in real life aren’t as forgiving. A pig farmer thinking about Easter hams will probably cull runts from his pens because they will never reach the body size needed for meat produc-tion, Meadows explained. Meadows also noted that in the wild, only the strong survive. And runts likely won’t win sporting awards, since they won’t have the muscles or build needed for agility or show ring competition. Even some animal welfare groups won’t cham-pion all runts to families. The Cat Adoption Team in Oregon wants to place as many kittens as possible, but it will draw the line with some runts, said operations manager Kristi Brooks. “If there are a lot of rambunctious kids, we suggest that a bigger kitten might fare better,” she said.As pets, runts can be the star of the litter ($4.99), hamburger omelet ($5.79) pork chops or steak and eggs. All are served with grits, toast or biscuit. Pancakes and French toast and breakfast sandwiches give one a wide range of choices. Junior’s is owned and operated by Robert and Sonya Wainwright, Welborn locals. Their son, Bryan, and Mom, Linda, all work at making this a welcoming oasis with good food. Homemade special-ties like macaroni and cheese, desserts such as carrot cake, apple or peach cobbler plus fresh cat fish on Saturdays are examples of what you might find welcoming you at Junior’s and entice you to make the ten minute drive from Lake City. Junior’s is open every day Monday through Saturday 5:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Sundays 7:00 to 3:00 p.m. Telephone num-ber is 386 963-3287. They are on Facebook but don’t have their own website yet.

In most cases, if a runted dog or cat makes it through six to eigh t weeks, it will likely survive and will probably get close to full size, according to experts.

DEAR ABBY: A year ago I remarried and gained three great stepkids. I’m worried about the oldest, who is a senior (18). She doesn’t care about school anymore. She’s smart enough. When she tries, she gets A’s. But when she doesn’t want to do the work, she gets F’s. There is no in-between. She’s capable, but lazy. Her youngest sister (12) is doing the same thing now, too. Neither one is using drugs or alcohol or skipping school. They are fundamentally good kids. I recognize that it’s laziness because I did the same thing 30 years ago. What turned me around was the U.S. Navy. I literally grew up on an aircraft carrier. Abby, until now I had only sons. I understand boys and men. Having daughters now is a very steep learning curve. I need suggestions on how to help their mom parent them through this rough period. I love our children deeply and want to be the kind of stepdad God wants me to be for them. -CLUELESS STEPDAD DEAR CLUELESS: For a man who signed himself clueless, you have clear insight. You and your wife should schedule an appointment with the oldest girl’s school coun-selor and find out to what degree her grade point average has been affected by her “laziness.” Then ask your stepdaughter what she plans to do after high school. Does she plan to go straight into a minimum-wage job -if she can find one -with little chance of advance-ment? Trade school? College? The 12-year-old is another story. Find out from her teachers whether she has fallen behind in any of her classes and see that she gets tutoring if she needs to catch up. Make sure she completes her homework assignments. You and her mother should impress upon her that you expect the best she’s capable of, and for good grades there will be rewards just as for poor grades there will be consequences, such as reduced privileges. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are retired. He has a small farm, which isn’t profitable, so he calls it his “hobby” farm. When we retired, we agreed to have our main meal at noon every day. I work hard to have a nutri-tious meal on the table promptly at 12 noon. My husband knows this, but he comes in from work-ing whenever he’s ready -sometimes hours late. I’m fed up with his behavior and need some suggestions on how to handle this. -BOILING MAD IN ALABAMA DEAR BOILING MAD: Perhaps agreeing to have your main meal together at noon was unrealistic. Talk calmly to your husband and ask if it would be more practical to schedule it for 1 p.m. or 2 p.m. That he wouldn’t call to let you know he’s running late does seem inconsiderate, and if the problem persists, it might be better for both of you if his “main meal” consists of a sandwich he makes for himself whenev-er he finally returns home. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t get annoyed; positive affirmation and offering love and affection is what’s required. Make suggestions that are play-ful and help achieve your objective. +++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Don’t give in to demands if it means you have to give up something you want. Avoid ultima-tums when solutions that suit everyone’s needs are available. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A personal decision will change your status or the way others view you. Honesty and integrity must be maintained, regardless of what or who you come up against. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): A sudden change of plans may cause worry. Refrain from making assumptions before you have all the facts. Ask questions and search for a practical answer. Someone unusual will help you find a creative solution that won’t stir up animosity. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take pride in the changes you make and others will take notice. Travel or taking part in something exciting will lead to friend-ships that will enrich your life. Love is on the rise, and a favorable change in your domestic scene is apparent. +++++ Sept. 22): Budget wisely, but don’t forgo attending something that will lead to an adventure with poten-tial to stimulate a project you want to complete. An opportunity that is offered for free will be worth plen-ty emotionally, mentally and physically. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Decisions will not be easy. Separate your emo-tions from what needs to be done and you will make the best choice for every-one involved. Opportunity knocks and you must be willing to take a leap of faith and do what will fur-ther your interests. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take on a challenge that allows you to show off what you are capable of doing. Your intensity will impress someone who can make a difference to your future prospects. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Follow your heart and make whatever alterations are needed to bring happiness into your life. Invest in knowledge and self-improvement. A partnership will pay off, allowing you greater free-dom. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Take precautions while traveling or dealing with people from differ-ent backgrounds. Don’t take on responsibilities that don’t belong to you. Focus on new ways to sub-sidize any losses you have encountered. Do your best to keep the peace. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): A life-altering change is evident. Check out what’s happening around you and recog-nize what you must do to improve your life. A physical change will lead to greater freedom and a happier future. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Use your intuition to guide you in the right direction. Look over con-tracts, legal papers, medi-cal issues or financial con-cerns and you will come up with a solution that will ease your stress. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Lascivious8 They have flat tops13 Most excellent, in modern slang 20 Set forth21 Kind of wine22 Heir, usually23 French farewell24 *Male pattern baldness? 26 Content of a 2003 decryption 28 With 78-Down, charactercommemorated inthe answers to thisSX]]OHVVWDUUHGclues 29 Muddy30 Japanese consent32 *Baying?36 Transfers, as funds38 Title words before (DV\IRU/LQGDRonstadt and+DUGIRU-RKQLennon 41 Coach42 Walk in the park, say 44 Menu heading46 French 101 verb47 Thumbing of the nose (PDLODGGUHVV ending r&DUGLRORJLVWV concern? 54 Bridge responses56 Sen.

6D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2012 '/,)( By MATT SEDENSKYAssociated PressPALM BEACH — No place in this storied playground of the rich evokes as much history as The Breakers and no one knows the sprawling resort’s story better than Jim Ponce. Sixty years after first coming to work as a frontdesk clerk at the hotel, 95-year-old Ponce still serves as the in-house his torian, showing up every Tuesday to offer a tour to guests. He dresses in period clothes, this day most notable for a red blazer, Panama hat and brasshandled ebony walking stick. And from the frescoed ceilings to the terrazzo floors, the 15th-century tapestries to the Roman arches, he guides visitors through one of America’s most celebrated hotels. He’s spent so much time here, he admits it’s as if his own history is entwined with that of the property. “It certainly isn’t just a hotel to me,” he said. As he guides several dozen guests through the ballrooms, parlors and hallways of The Breakers, Ponce offers more than just staid commentary on gilded ceilings, Venetian chandeliers and other tokens of excess. He tells of the gasp he heard when Princess Diana and Prince Charles entered the Mediterranean Ballroom for a dance in 1985, brushes with every one from Bette Davis to Eleanor Roosevelt, even splitting a bottle of Moet & Chandon with Phyllis Diller. “We love to drop names,” Ponce said. The Breakers was first opened under a different name in 1896 by Henry Flagler, the oil and rail tycoon who developed much of Florida’s eastern coast. Flagler’s name is invoked throughout the tour and Ponce pays a quiet tribute as he passes his portrait. “The man himself,” he says softly, with a wisp of Southern drawl. The Breakers twice burned to the ground, in 1903 and 1925. Ponce tells his roughly 30 visitors this day that the latter fire was blamed on the wife of the then-mayor of Chicago, who left a curling iron plugged in at the resort. “Chicago girls are noted for that sort of thing,” he says to laughter. Ponce tells of hearing the heartbreaking news of the fire as a boy, but The Breakers was rebuilt in stunning fashion, in just under a year. His own his tory at the hotel began in 1952, after finishing World War II service in the Navy. He held various jobs at The Breakers and hotels around Palm Beach until returning in 1977 as an assistant manager. He retired in 1982, but never really left. He vows to keep coming as long as his health allows. “He has perspective that none of us have,” said Kirk Bell, the hotel’s man ager. “He has a history of the people that have come and gone — royalty, presi dents, movie stars, people in all walks of life.” Ask Ponce any question and he musters an answer. But ask him his favorite spot on the property’s 140 acres, and he has trouble picking. “It’s so classically beau tiful that it’s hard to say,” he said. He knows what budget hotels are like; he spent some time as a Holiday Inn manager. And he knows luxury, too, rat tling off the names of The Jefferson, The Greenbrier, The Homestead and other resorts of the well-heeled at which he has stayed. They’re all very beau tiful, he admits, but he wouldn’t trade them for anything. “They just don’t touch The Breakers,” he said. Ponce has his tour down to a science — the laugh lines, the gestures with his walking stick, the minute details on shades of paint and numbers of rooms and historical dates. With him at the helm, the Magnolia Room isn’t just another oceanfront par lor, it’s a glimpse of Old Florida life of afternoon teas and letter-writing by a crackling fire. That space above the Circle Dining Room isn’t just for intimate meals, it was a Prohibition-era hideaway for those crav ing a cocktail at dinner. He has no ghost stories to share, but tells of the hotel’s stint as an Army hospital, points out hid den features of a painting and gives a history of an elaborate gold ceiling. Around each new cor ner, Ponce has another anecdote. And even as the tour concludes outside the Italian Renaissance landmark, he can’t help but think of one more. “You got t ime for just a short story?” he asks. And filled with delight, the guests lean in for more. If You Go...THE BREAKERS: 1 S. Country Road, Palm Beach, Fla.; http:// www.thebreakers.com/ or 888-273-2537.

By JENNIFER PELTZAssociated PressNEW YORK — The Big Apple is getting another “biggest”: The world’s biggest Ferris wheel is to be built on Staten Island, in an ambitious attempt to draw tourists to what’s sometimes known as the city’s “forgotten borough,” officials announced Thursday The $230 million attraction, to be called the New York Wheel, is to grace a spot overlooking the Statue of Liberty, New York Harbor and the downtown Manhattan skyline — a singular view that officials hope will add to the appeal what they say would be the world’s tallest Ferris wheel. The 625-foot-tall structure would swing higher than the Singapore Flyer, the London Eye, and a “High Roller” wheel planned in Las Vegas. “The New York Wheel will be an attraction unlike any other in New York City — even unlike any other on the planet,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg said in a release. Construction is expected to begin in early 2014 on the privately financed project, which also includes a 100-shop outlet mall and a 200-room hotel. The grand opening could come by the end of 2015. While riding the Staten Island Ferry is a staple of many visitors’ agendas, the city has long sought to entice tourists off the boat and into Staten Island, the least populous and most remote borough — once known for hosting the world’s largest landfill. Australian tourists Leah Field and Adam Lica, for example, were riding the ferry Thursday for its views of the Statue of Liberty. They thought they might have lunch on the Staten Island side but weren’t planning to explore further. “We weren’t sure what there is to do there,” explained Lica, 32, of Melbourne. Were there a giant Ferris wheel, would the couple stay to ride it? Probably, he said. To Staten Island resident Miatta Bryant, the wheel might bring the borough more respect. “I think it’ll be a really good idea,” she said. NYC to get ‘world’s largest’ Ferris wheel ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this image released by the New York Mayor’s Office, Th ursday, Sept. 27 is an artist’s rendering of a proposed 625-foot Ferris wheel, billed as the world’s largest, planned as part of a retail and hotel complex along the Staten Island waterfront in New York.
