From staff reportsLIVE OAK An early-morning crash in Suwannee County left one man dead and another critically hurt Friday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Jonathan Michael Matthews, 21, Live Oak, was pronounced dead at the scene, said FHP. His passenger, Dillon Wayne Gardner, 18, Live Oak, was flown to Shands at the University of Florida in critical condition. Matthews was headed south on County Road 249 at 12:45 a.m. when the right wheels of his 2002 Ford F-150 drove onto the wet grass of the right shoulder.

SUNDAYEDITION Vol. 138, No. 179 1C 1B 1A By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comW ith a perfect match, three teams of doc-tors took just over five hours to renew a Lake City womans future. B.J. Helton, 30, was born with a rare, genetic disorder called Alstrm Syndrome. The condition weakened her heart and lungs to the point that a double transplant was her only chance. Its been just over a month since Helton received a heart and lung transplant at Shands at the University of Florida and the changes in her health have been drastic and immedi-ate. Ive gotten my child back, said her mother, Mary Register. I havent seen B.J. like this in years. Shes making plans again, she said. Helton is the only person in the United States with Alstrms to suc-cessfully receive both a heart and lung transplant, Register said. More than 500 people have followed Heltons journey through a Facebook group named Seeking BJs Heart. Knowing that people have been praying has really been the biggest thing, Helton said. Now friends, family and other supporters are sending cards of encour-agement to Heltons Gainesville apartment, where they will remain for four to six weeks for frequent hospital checkups. I knew I was sick. Its been at least 4 to 6 years since Ive felt so healthy, Helton said. I never had completely normal organs, so at 30 I dont know what to do with them, she laughs. Helton, who is blind, is now able to see more shapes and light than ever before due to increased blood flow. Pain is only a fraction of what it was before the transplant, Register said. With daily physical therapy sessions, Helton is gaining strength.

How to pay for it, construct it and make it viable is what will be discussed when county officials host a special meeting to discuss the proposal at 6 p.m., Tuesday in the Columbia County Resources Inc. enter-tainment building at the coun-ty fairgrounds, 438 SW State Road 247. The purpose of the meeting is to allow the Events Center Fact Finding Committee and Clemons & Rutherford Architects the opportunity to give a presentation regarding the proposed events center. No action by the board of county commissioners will be taken at the meeting. This is the project that has been under study for at least a year, said Dale Williams, county manager.

AROUND FLORIDA Friday: 12-27-32-35 MB 10 Friday: 4-7-16-21-31 Saturday: Afternoon: N/A Evening: N/A Saturday: Afternoon: N/A Evening: N/A Saturday: N/A Jacksonville may prove key to Florida victory JACKSONVILLE E ric Allen was 18 and voting in his first presi dential election when he chose Barack Obama over John McCain. Four years older now and looking for a job, he is just the kind of voter Republican Mitt Romney needs to win and win big in northeast Floridas Duval County and take the most coveted of the toss-up states. I voted for him last time just to see the change, Allen says of Obama, and there was no change. For Lashawn Williams, the excitement she felt from Obamas first run is still there in spite of an economy in the doldrums. The 39-year-old bank employee is volunteer ing for the re-election campaign and telling those who are frustrated with the president that the blame is misplaced. People say, Oh, well, hes in there and hes not changing anything and blah, blah, blah. But he cant do it by himself, Williams says during her lunch break in downtown Jacksonville. Everything hes tried to do hes got ten resistance from the Republican Party. The Obama campaign targeted the Jacksonville area with surprising success in 2008, nearly equaling Republican John McCain in Duval County votes as Obama carried the state. Whether Obama can do as well again may determine if he takes Florida a second time and with it a second term. In GOP regions of swing states, Republicans must turn out in huge numbers to overcome Democratic advantages elsewhere. Republicanfriendly regions like south east Ohio and southwest Virginia share northeast Floridas mission of over whelming Democrats at the polls. For both campaigns, Florida is one of the keys to winning the White House. Its even more important for Romney, whose paths to Electoral College victory are few without the states 29 votes. Even though each side has already spent $60 million on TV and radio ads, Republicans are expected to spend even more than Democrats in the campaigns final weeks. Polling shows a tight race in Florida with Obama slightly ahead in some surveys, making the Democrats turnout in Duval County essential to his overall strategy. Obama persuaded enough moderate Republicans, conservative Democrats and indepen dents to give his message of hope and change a chance to cancel out the usual Republican advan tage there. The Democratic cam paign was more com petitive in 2008 in part because it built excitement in Duval Countys large black community with voter registration drives and get-out-the-vote efforts to support the nations first black presidential candidate on a major party ticket. Duval County has more than 516,000 registered voters out of a total popula tion of about 871,000. The percentage of black resi dents, 29.8, is nearly dou ble the statewide figure. The campaign will have to keep the same enthusiasm among black voters to keep Duval competitive. Teen runaway dies after crash JACKSONVILLE Authorities say a 16year-old runaway has died Friday from injuries she suffered after a car she was riding in crashed dur ing a police chase. Kyrsten QAmise Veal has been missing from Seminole County since July. On Wednesday, authori ties said they tried to pull over a vehicle that Veal and two others were in. The car sped away and a Georgia state trooper tried to spin the suspects car off the road. The car slammed into a tree and split in two. The 24-year-old David Sessions died at the scene. Camden County sheriffs Deputy William Terrell said Veal died Friday at a Jacksonville hospital. Driver Jamal Jones was hospitalized in serious con dition. The 19-year-old faces several charges including aggravated assault. Police: man played cop for free food ST. PETERSBURG Authorities in southwest Florida have arrested a man they say pretended to be an officer in an attempt to get free food. Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies said Joseph Pineda rolled up to a McDonalds drive-through Friday saying he deserved free food because he was a cop. Authorities said he flashed a badge and gun and told restaurant employees he had just come from a sting and didnt have his wallet. Employees called the police. Pineda initially ignored commands to show his hands but even tually surrendered at gun point. Authorities said they found two fake police badges and a handgun in the center console. Thirty-three year-old Pineda was charged with impersonating a police officer and improper exhi bition of a firearm. He was being held in the Pinellas County Jail. Associated Press NEW YORK D aredevil stuntman David Blaine lit up New Yorks Pier 54 on Friday for his latest high voltage feat. The illusionist is scheduled to spend three days and nights standing in the middle of a million volts of electric currents streamed by tesla coils. The stunt is called Electrified: One Million Volts Always On. Electrified also is being streamed on YouTube, thanks to computing company Intel. Viewing stations are located in London, Beijing, Tokyo and Sydney. Viewers at the stations are able to control the coils. The 39-year-old Blaine is wearing a chainmail bodysuit as a barrier between himself and the electric cur rents. Blaines past stunts include hang ing upside down over Central Park, being buried alive and encased in a block of ice. OReilly, Stewart to tangle in mock debate WASHINGTON Bill OReilly and Jon Stewart are to tangle in a sold-out mock presidential debate thats as much about laughs as about politics. The Fox News anchor squares off with the star of Comedy Centrals The Daily Show Saturday in Washington. Its a chance to blow off a little steam amid a heated presiden tial race. The celebrity odd-couple have appeared on each others programs since 2001, exhibiting actual respect for the others opposing views. This is their first head-to-head debate. George Washington University will host the event, dubbed The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium. Half of the proceeds will go to char ity. Unlike the debates between President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, this one wont air on television but will be live-streamed online, for $4.95. Bond memorabilia goes under hammer in London LONDON James Bond lovers have spent thousands of pounds for pieces of memorabilia from the spy movies at a London auction. Christies auction house is sell ing the items to coincide with the 50th birthday of the Bond movies. The first Bond film, Dr. No, was released Oct. 5, 1962. Among the items under the ham mer Friday in London was the com plete works of Ian Fleming, Bonds creator. That fetched 91,250 pounds ($147,197), handily beating esti mates of between 10,000 and 15,000 pounds. A navy, wool Tom Ford suit worn by Daniel Craig in the new Skyfall film due out on Oct. 26 sold for 46,850 pounds. Proceeds will go to several chari ties, including the U.N. childrens fund, UNICEF.

Romney all but ignored the posi tive jobs numbers while campaign ing Friday night in Florida, instead highlighting his strong debate perfor mance and presenting a more com passionate message as he sought to overcome Obamas narrow lead in the polls. He made clear earlier in the day that he did not agree with the presidents assessment that the unemployment statistic it dipped from 8.1 percent to 7.8 percent in September is a sign of an economy heading in the right direction. By any rational measure, its crys tal clear were in the middle of a jobs crisis, Romney said in a fundraising message to supporters. My prior ity is jobs. And from Day One of my presidency, I will lead us out of this crisis. Obama said the creation of 114,000 jobs in September, coupled with the drop in unemployment, was a remind er that this country has come too far to turn back now. Jabbing at his rivals plans, the president declared, Weve made too much progress to return to the policies that caused this crisis in the first place. Obama was planning to spend Saturday celebrating the 20th wed ding anniversary he had put aside because it fell on the day of the debate. With Vice President Joe Biden and Romney running mate Paul Ryan forgoing public events ahead of their own debate, on Thursday in Danville, Ky., Romney has the stage to himself for a campaign event near Orlando. Aides say Romney would spend part of Saturday preparing for his next debate with Obama, scheduled for Oct. 16 in Hempstead, N.Y., before speaking at an evening rally. The presidents team says he hasnt had any formal practice sessions since the first debate. While sticking with his focus on economic issues, Romney was also bringing up intimate details of friend ships that had ended in death as part of a shift to present himself in more personal terms. His wife, Ann, has often talked about Romneys compassionate side, but the former Massachusetts governor rarely dis cusses it publicly. At a rally in St. Petersburg., Romney recalled the time he spent with a young teenager dying of leu kemia, returning to a story the boys parents had related from the stage of the Republican National Convention. Ive seen the character of a young man like David, who wasnt emo tional or crying. He had his eyes wide open, Romney said Friday night. Theres a saying: Clear eyes, full heart, cant lose. David couldnt lose. I loved that young man. The Romney campaign was releas ing a TV ad featuring a woman who says she voted for Obama in 2008 but is supporting the Republican today. Why Mitt Romney? she asks. Being a woman, you think about your children and you think about their future. And what I want to think about is a future that has jobs. That our economys growing again. Thats important to women and its impor tant to me. Widely regarded as having lost the debate Wednesday night in Denver to Romney, Obama came out with more energy and a retooled response in ral lies in Colorado, Wisconsin and Ohio over the last two days. On Sunday, Obama is scheduled to launch a lucrative and celebri ty-packed fundraising swing to Los Angeles and San Francisco, a two-day trek followed by a campaign rally in ever-important Ohio on Tuesday. Obama and his surrogates plan to hammer Romney on two fronts: con tending that Romney lied about his positions during the debate and criti cizing him as downplaying Fridays positive jobs reports. ASSOCIATED PRESS Republican Presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney laughs as he speaks to a supporter after a campaign speech Friday in St. Petersburg. Meningitis outbreak means weeks of worry for those possibly infected By BRUCE CHREINER AND KRISTIN M. HALL Associated Press NASHVILLE, Tenn. Patsy Bivins tossed and turned all night after find ing out the steroid shot she received to ease her chron ic back pain could instead threaten her life. For now, all the 68-yearold retired waitress can do is hope she doesnt develop the telltale signs of a rare form of fungal meningitis that health officials say has sickened more than 60 peo ple in nine states: a splitting headache, fever, stiff neck, difficulty walking or wors ening back pain. There may be hundreds or even thousands more like her. She called her doctors Friday, right after her first cup of coffee, hoping to relieve the anxiety stirred a day earlier when she learned she might be at risk. Bivins was told only that she didnt need to be checked unless she devel oped symptoms. Im not sure if I like it, Bivins, of Sturgis, Ky., said Frida. Seems like there should be some way to tell it before you get the symp toms. Honestly, it makes me worse than I was. Federal health officials say seven people have died so far, and they fear thou sands more could have been exposed. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said the outbreak may have been caused by a steroid made by a specialty pharmacy in Massachusetts, where inspectors found at least one sealed vial that was con taminated. Its not yet clear how the fungus got into the steroid, which is com monly used to treat back pain. But officials have told health professionals not to use anything made by the pharmacy. So far, the government has identified about 75 facilities in 23 states that received the recalled doses. It is not yet clear exactly how many people could get sick, though health offi cials say the fungus is not transmitted from person to person. The CDC has called for clinics and doctors to imme diately identify those who could have been exposed between July 1 and Sept. 28. It could be weeks before any of the patients are in the clear. Sure Im apprehensive, but theres not a thing I can do except wait and see what happens, said Richard Jenkins, an 81year-old from Nashville who received his most recent shot Sept. 11 at the Saint Thomas Outpatient Neurology Surgery Center. The chief medical offi cer for the Tennessee Department of Health said Friday the incubation peri od for the disease isnt yet known and he advised atrisk patients to be vigilant for symptoms for weeks. A month is the shortest wed possibly want to con sider that. Were looking at a longer period of time before wed feel confident that somebody is out of the woods, Dr. David Reagan said. The company at the cen ter of the outbreak, the New England Compounding Center, had been investi gated by Massachusetts regulators in 2006. That led to an agreement for a full inspection of its drug com pounding practices, includ ing sterility. A spokesman for NECC said the company would have no further comment Friday. It has previously said that it is cooperating with health investigators to determine the source of the infections. Bivins, a widow who lives in western Kentucky about an hour from Evansville, Ind., received two injections in her lower back on Aug. 27. It was the first time she had received steroid injec tions and the constant pain in her lower back, hips and legs was eased. She said she doesnt blame the doctors they were just trying to help her, not knowing the ste roid could have been contaminated. Calif. gas prices hit all-time high LOS ANGELES Its a record, though just barely. The price of gasoline hit an all-time average high in California of $4.6140 a gal lon Saturday, fueled by a reduced supply and a vola tile market. The record was set by a fraction of a penny, according to AAA spokesman Michael Green. The previous high was $4.6096 on June 19, 2008. Prices throughout the state were expected to increase for several more days. The Associated Press
I ts bad enough when the universal consen-sus is that you lost the first presidential debate. Whats worse for President Obama is that his own team concedes he did so without telling the truth. Stephanie Cutter, Mr. Obamas deputy campaign manager essentially called her boss a liar on Thursday. During the previous nights contest, Mitt Romney refused to allow the president to get away with saying the GOP tax plan would result in a $5 trillion cut that is not paid for. My No. 1 principle is there will be no tax cut that adds to the deficit, the for-mer Massachusetts governor explained to the former Illinois senator. So any language to the contrary is simply not accurate. When CNN informed Ms. Cutter that its own analysis confirmed that the Romney plan closes loop-holes and deductions to bring in more revenue, she was forced to admit, Well, OK, stipulated, it wont be near $5 trillion. The facts didnt get in the way of Mr. Obama repeating more debate falsehoods on Friday. He told an audience at George Mason University in Virginia that the GOP candi-date said theres no way that hed close the loophole that gives big oil companies bil-lions each year in corporate welfare. Actually, Mr. Romney said Wednesday that the hun-dred-year-old tax credit that amounts to less than $3 billion a year is probably not going to survive if he is successful in reducing the corporate tax rate from a worldwide high of 35 percent to 25 percent. Mr. Obama continues to claim his Republican chal-lenger would raise taxes on middle-class families by $2,000 a year. He said in the debate that the GOP candidates plan could never be revenue neutral without closing deduc-tions and loopholes for aver-age Americans, insisting, Its math. Its arithmetic. If so, its some kind of new math. Mr. Romney vows to do the oppo-site, lowering taxes on middle-income families through a 20 percent reduction in rates. He also pointed out that the one study upon which Mr. Obama based his accusations has been debunked by neutral econo-mists and fact checkers. A new report from the American Enterprise Institute shows Mr. Obama is the one who will oppress the middle class because the massive debt incurred under the current administration will result in higher taxes. The economists estimated the real annual cost for households to service the debt the current $16.2 trillion plus the $7.6 trillion increase projected under Mr. Obamas policies would be a $4,000 a year tax hike on middle-income families. The Romney campaign released a new TV ad Friday on this point. Obamas four deficits are the four largest in U.S. his-tory, the announcer intones over slides showing the facts. Hes adding almost as much debt as all 43 previous presi-dents combined, and over 30 cents of every dollar Obama spends is borrowed. The year-end fiscal 2012 books reflected another $1.1 trillion deficit, the fourth highest since World War II. Its as if Mr. Obama is acting under the illusion that no one will call him out on his false-hoods. However, its looking more and more likely that vot-ers will realize a second term would mean larger deficits for the budget and the truth. Obamastruthdeficit OUR OPINION I n this county in 1940, Mary J. Lightfoote was the Jeanes teacher. She was called a Jeanes teacher because the funding for her position came from the Anna T. Jeanes Foundation. Ms. Jeanes, a white Quaker woman, had donated $1,000,000 in 1908 to set up a foundation to help upgrade the black rural schools in the South. So, Mrs. Lightfootes mission here was to visit our black rural schools and try to improve them. This was no easy task because, in the first place, simply getting to these schools could be a challenge. They were often located on primi-tive dirt roads, and heavy rains sometimes made the roads almost impassable. Once there, she had the difficult job of help-ing the students and teachers who were usually housed in sec-ond class buildings. This might mean the teachers desk could be a crate and the students chairs might be odds and ends of boxes. Mrs. Lightfoote was often heard to say that, although the build-ings might be second class, the teachers were first class. But Mrs. Lightfoote had a missionary zeal and was up to the challenge. Her driving philosophy was to work on the next needed thing. Some of the schools she visited were Bethel, Bethlehem, Kings Welcome, Winfield, Jerusalem, Kiota, Scrubtown, Falling Creek, and Springville. Some of the teachers she visited were Arrie Lee Gainey, Agnes C. Norton, Herman R. Tunsil, R. R. Kenon, Margaret Hall, James E. Green, Minnie J. Niblack, and Callie A. Zow. Mrs. Lightfoote, and all like her, should be held in a place of honor in American history for all her contributions to black teachers and students under trying circumstances way back when. TAX COLLECTOR INFOWhen I visited the Tax Collectors office recently to renew my drivers license, I noticed a wall chart that dis-played interesting information about the tax office: The tax collectors office was created statewide by the Florida Constitution of 1885. The longest serving tax collec-tor in Florida is Earl K. Wood of Orange Countysome 44 years, since 1965. Columbia Countys longest serving tax collector was the late Alvin C. Hosford. He served 32 years, from 1941-1973. The Lake City tax office handles over $65,000,000 a year in our taxes. The highest single tax bill is $496, 403. 98, paid by Lake City Medical Center. There are 111 specialty license plates and as of 2008 the sales leader was the Florida Gator tag. To their credit, Tax Collector Ronnie Brannons excellent staff seems to handle everything in this busy office with politeness and efficiency. FORT McCOY SCHOOL Our School Museum has a copy of a pictorial history of the old Ft. McCoy school in Marion County. The Ft. McCoy school history goes back to 1917 and would be a treasure for the right people in Marion County to have. If any reader attended Ft.

Browning was extended an invitation to attend a school meeting in Lake City. He wrote back saying he could not attend that meeting but would attend an alternate meeting to be held in October. Supt. Browning, a literate and religious man (a deep water Baptist), wrote these words in replying to the invitation: I shall look forward to coming in the golden brown of invigorat-ing October when the leaves, leisurely and sentimentally, drift to Mother Earth, speaking to us the message that we, too, following our fitful spasm of lifemoved by trials, and prob-lems and motives, good and baseshall drift back to Mother Earth and await the glorious springtime of the resurrection morning. CALL THE COPSA young mother was driving her five year old son to school one day when a nude woman riding in the convertible just ahead stood up and waved. The son said, Mom, call the police. That lady isnt wearing a seat belt! Mary J. Lightfoote, Jeanes teacher LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor:In rebuttal of Louis Beames High Springs, Wed 9-26-12: Barack is your shepherd and the want will never stop he will see to it. He forces you to sleep on park benches and leads you beside shut down oil wells and coal industries and boarded up businesses strangled by regula-tion. He will restore your knowledge of the corruption of the Dim party if you will only listen. He guides you to the path of unemployment for the sake of communism, Yea, though you walk thru the valley of soup kitchens, you are still hungry and have no hope because of his trickle up theory. We, the poor, do fear your evil as we watch you destroy our Christian nation. He anoints our income with taxes so he can spend more and more of our money on Solyndra, the many other bankrupt green energy programs and Government Motors while shut-ting down the Gulf oil Industry, the coal industry and the Keystone Pipeline at the same time borrowing $2 BILLION and loaning it to Chavez to drill oil wells telling him that we will be his best customer. Poverty and hard living will follow us all the days of the DIM party and we shall live in a tent forever without housing because the government has destroyed our income and our country by purposely bankrupt-ing it. Only real prayer to God will save our nation. I will stay on my knees as I hope our entire nation is doing. The communist idea of fairness is for them (the dictator and the ruling class) to live in luxury and for the rest of the people to live in abject poverty. Think not. Take a good look at Cuba and any of the other commu-nist nations. They take all the resources for themselves and the rest of the people have noth-ing. You cant help the poor nations of the world after tril-lions of our dollars was sent to them the corrupted (or communist) governments take it all and the people still live in poverty. This is what your fearless leader wants for you but you are asleep and cant see it. Barack Obama had the House, the Senate and the presi-dency for two full years but the only thing he did was shove ObamecareLESS down our throats with corruption behind closed doors which is all about power and control and has abso-lutely nothing to do with our health or well being. Just wait until you face the death panels. Wonder what you will have to say then. I sure hope you are very young. The mess he inherited was his own mess he was in the Senate when we had the meltdown. Dont you think maybe he needs to accept some responsibly for the meltdown since you seem to think that the Republicans are stopping Barack Obama from saving our nation. While you have your thinking cap on-think about food prices, the price of gas at the pump and your power bill. How are you really liking his hopeless change? The only thing I ever needed to know about Barack Obama was that he voted twice while in the Illinois legislature to WITHHOLD all medical care from babies BORN ALIVE from botched abortions. These babies get another death sen-tence when the first did not work. And you probably want him in charge of your health care. Just think what he is willing to do to you. As far as Mitt Romneys tax returns what has he to prove-that he is very wealthy? So was Kennedy and Kerry who cares? He can do what he wants with his own money, I am far more interested in my tax returns and the money Barack Obama has wasted, by the trillions, of all taxpaying Americans and the $16 trillion deficit caused by 43 cents of every dollar that contin-ues to be borrowed. Wonder how long your household would last if you borrowed 43 cents of every dollar you spend. It puzzles me that suddenly capitalism is evil since we have only prospered for over 230 years of capitalism. America and capitalism has done well until Barack Obama got elected with him & his Dim buddies in charge. Dont see anyone risking life and limb to get into China, North Korea or Cuba, do you? By the way, the dims were in charge in the House and Congress until the elections of 2010 so whose mess is this really? I would suggest you take your own wake up advice. America is fully awake-too bad you are not. Jo LytteLake City Barack is your shepherd...

BY E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org L ess than two weeks after the Suwannee River Water Management District, responding to the worst drought here since 1932, instituted tough new restrictions on water usage last summer, Tropical Storm Debby brought a deluge the likes of which weve never seen. Months later, groundwater levels are up and the immediate crisis has passed. Consequently, the district allowed the tough new rules to expire Sept. 30. In their place are the now-standard limita-tions of twice-per-week lawn watering, among other restric-tions. We think the tougher rules should have remained in place. Rather than fly by the seat of our pants from one crisis to the next, we should be focused on learning to conserve our most precious natural resource throughout the year rain or shine. Debbys downpour was a short-term fix for a long-term problem. Water is a finite resource, and as the economic climate improves and the local popu-lation once again begins to swell, the problem will only get worse. Were not suggesting that once-per-week lawn watering is the answer to all our woes. Nonetheless, such a rule, were the political will there to leave it in place, would slowly and subtly change the way we think about a resource we far too easily take for granted. Inconvenient?For some, surely.But as conservation measures go, its far more palatable than some. There are otherwise sensible people who seriously propose making water so expensive that average folks have no choice but to ration it. We like the districts original idea better.

By MICHAEL BRAUN The News-Press FORT MYERS What used to be part of the states largest military airfield is now the countys newest green space, the 3,000-plus-acre Wild Turkey Strand Preserve. The new Conservation 20/20 pre serve between Fort Myers and Lehigh Acres opened recently off State Road 82 west of the Hendry County line. It provides wildlife habitat as well as a place for nature enthusiasts, hikers, photographers and picnickers. It came together wonderfully, said Cathy Olson, senior supervisor for the Conservation 20/20 program in the county Parks and Recreation Department. The design team tried to make it as green as possible. The preserve sits amid what used to be the Buckingham Army Airfield, once the states largest airfield train ing base during World War II. The airfield, used from 1942 to 1945, was instrumental for gunnery training. Little evidence of the facility now remains, but Olson said workers are in the process of installing historic interpretative panels describing the fields use during WWII. The area offers a wilderness feel despite the steady drone of jetliners every three minutes or so on approach to Southwest Florida International Airport not far away. Also included at the new preserve are picnic areas, a 1.8-mile nature trail and two wetland observation decks. Two primitive portions of the nature trail remain somewhat under water during the areas wet seasonal and visitors are recommended to wear appropriate shoes. Sherri Furnari, the 20/20 coordina tor for the preserve, said a brochure is being put together to describe the site as well as others being planned such as the Buckingham Trails Preserve, 8790 Buckingham Road, set to open in 2014, and Six Mile Cypress Preserve North, set for 2017. It has historical as well as natural perspective, Furnari said of the new preserve. Trailblazing trail Olson said the site also is Lee Countys first large-scale application of Flexi-Pave, a pavement made of shredded tires and stone. Flexi-Pave gave us a really good price, she said. They were anxious for us to use it. The surface also is used at the Imaginarium in Fort Myers. Flexi-Paves porous surface allows rainfall to percolate through, forming good bacteria that filter clean water into the groundwater table. Olson said the pavement was used to help enhance one of the preserves green purposes, groundwater recharging. Initial acquisition of the property began in 2001 and was completed at a cost of $18 million in 2008. Money from the Conservation 20/20 management fund was supple mented by grants. The preserve was acquired as three parcels in 2001, 2003 and 2008 and is considered Conservation 20/20s sec ond-largest conservation area. Animals and plants known to flour ish at the new preserve include whitetailed deer, marsh rabbits and eastern cottontails, northern river otter, feral hogs, wild turkey, Everglades snail kites, yellow-billed cuckoo, flatwoods, cypress strand swamps, cypress dome swamps, freshwater marshes, wet prairies and abandoned pastures. The area was damaged from a wildfire in April 2007 that burned through pine flatwoods and cypress. Contractors working with the Caloosahatchee Districts Florida Division of Forestry have removed large melaleuca trees and thinned dense pine tree stands. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER NATION & STATE SUNDAY OCTOBER 7, 2012 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 6A COUPON REQUIRED ...Do you have the over-priced, slow-speed Internet Blues?

Ga. congressman calls evolution lie from pit of hell Associated Press ATHENS, Ga. Georgia Rep. Paul Broun said in vid eotaped remarks that evo lution, embryology and the Big Bang theory are lies straight from the pit of hell meant to convince people that they do not need a savior. The Republican lawmak er made those comments during a speech Sept. 27 at a sportsmans banquet at Liberty Baptist Church in Hartwell. Broun, a medical doctor, is running for reelection in November unop posed by Democrats. Gods word is true, Broun said, according to a video posted on the churchs website. Ive come to understand that. All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embry ology and Big Bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of hell. And its lies to try to keep me and all the folks who are taught that from understanding that they need a savior. Broun also said that he believes the Earth is about 9,000 years old and that it was made in six days. Those beliefs are held by fundamentalist Christians who believe the creation accounts in the Bible to be literally true. Broun spokeswoman Meredith Griffanti told the Athens Banner-Herald that Broun was recorded speaking off-the-record to a church group about his religious beliefs. He sits on the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. It seems unlikely that Brouns remarks were sup posed to be kept private. The banquet was adver tised, Broun spoke before an audience and the video of his remarks was posted on the churchs website. ASSOCIATED PRESS Georgia U.S. Rep. Paul Broun, a Republican seeking reelection in the states 10th Congressional District seat, said that evolution, embryology and the Big Bang theory are lies straight from the pit of hell meant to convince people that they do not need a savior. The lawmaker made those com ments during a speech at a sportsmans banquet. Private space station delivery to launch today MARCIA DUNN Associated Press CAPE CANAVERAL A private company is on the verge of launching another cargo ship to the International Space Station. On Sunday night, California-based SpaceX will attempt to send a Dragon capsule to the orbiting lab and its three-member crew. Liftoff of the companys unmanned Falcon rocket is scheduled for 8:35 p.m. EDT. Forecasters put the odds of acceptable weather at 60 percent. Thick clouds and rain are the main con cerns. A Dragon cargo ship successfully docked to the space station last May, but that was considered a test flight. The coming mis sion is the first under a $1.6 billion contract with NASA that calls for a dozen resupply flights by SpaceX, essential in the post-shuttle era. We got there once. We demonstrated we could do it, so there might be a teeny, teeny bit of relax ation. Not a lot, though, SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell told reporters Saturday night. NASA was monitoring a potentially threatening piece of orbiting junk, but said that even if the space station had to steer clear of the object, that would not delay the SpaceX mission. This newest Dragon will haul about 1,000 pounds of food, clothes and gear, including ice cream for the American, Russian and Japanese astronauts on board. (The ice cream will go up in freezers meant for research). Even more cargo will be coming back. The capsule will remain docked to the space sta tion for most of October. Astronauts will fill the cap sule with blood and urine samples, other experiments and old equipment, for its return to Earth at the end of the month. By then, the complex will be back to a full crew of six. The nearly 500 tubes of blood and syringes of urine have been stashed in space station freezers since the last space shuttle flight, by Atlantis, in July 2011. The decommissioned Atlantis, and sister ships Discovery and Endeavour, are now museum relics. NASA nutritionist Scott Smith said these blood and urine samples part of medical studies will be the first to be returned since Atlantis final voyage. This is the first real return vehicle for this type of sample, Scott said. The cargo ships periodi cally flown by Russia, Japan and Europe do not have the capability to return any thing; they burn up upon reentry. The SpaceX Dragons parachute down into the Pacific, reminiscent of NASAs old-time capsules. While it may seem very strange to some folks, my typical line is that, It may be urine to you, but its gold to us, Smith said. Theres a lot of science that comes out of this. NASAs space station program manager, Mike Suffredini, is also thrilled about having an American spacecraft bearing goods. Its much easier to get lastminute equipment aboard a U.S. capsule, he noted. The Dragon, for example, will carry up a new pump for the space stations urineinto-drinking water recy cling system. Shipping and customs can kill you when youre trying to get overseas, Suffredini said.
got a lot more energy, she said. Helton said she sets a high and low goal every day to stay motivated. She is now able to walk 14 min utes on the treadmill and has even asked therapists for more weight on the weightlifting machines. Every day I set a specific goal I want to reach, she said. She is walking farther and much more talkative, Register said. There are just over 800 documented cases of Alstrm Syndrome, which has claimed two of B.J.s siblings. B.J.s sister, Rebekah, died as a baby. Her brother Andrew battled the disorder until he was 29. Late in the day on Sept. 5 they got a call telling Helton to stop eating, youre going to transplant, Register said. Register said the day before doctors were sup posed to remove a device that measures Heltons pulmonary pressures and puts her on the top of the national transplant list. The device can only be in for so long and remov ing it lowers her on the transplant list, Register said. For some reason a new doctor never came to remove the device, so when the organ donation came in, Helton was ready, her mom said. That was amazing. I laughed, I cried, I jumped for joy, she said. After the transplant, Register said a surgeon told her personally that he didnt know how Helton had survived for so long with such a weak heart. Now, Helton takes 16 medicines daily, including three anti-rejection medi cines, Register said. There have been some post-sur gery challenges, she said. Two days after surgery, Helton started having sei zures as her body adjusted to receiving more oxygen, Register said. However biopsies on her lungs and heart have shown no problems, Register said. Weekly, mother and daughter meet with a sup port group of transplant patients and their care givers. Register said it is wonderful to talk to people who understand. The medications sup press Heltons immunity so for the rest of her life she will have to be care ful about getting sick, Register said. Helton said she will wear gloves and a mask and stay away from big crowds. You dont want to waste a gift youve been given, she said. Appreciating the small things, Helton is grateful to be able to shower on her own, free of tubes and monitoring devices. After two months in the hospital, she is also happy to be in the apartment. People arent coming in poking me when Im sleeping, she said.. Helton said she has been invited to several churches to share her story. I have been called to go and give my testimo ny. Thats really exciting, she said. Helton is also hoping to be healthy enough to attend an international Alstrm conference in May, where her brother and sister will be featured on a memory board. I really want to go, Helton said. Helton already has a degree in psychology and shes planning her next degree. Im going back to school. I want my mas ters, she said. As long as Im not sick, Im not a person who likes to sit around and not enjoy things, she said.

The public is also encouraged to attend the meeting. The presentation is scheduled to include the architects rendition of the building and reports giving the potential economic impact. The events building concept originated from the Columbia County Tourist Development Council. The TDC was looking at unmet needs and what we need to do as a tourist development council to fill the needs we see that will help us pro mote the county and the hotel/motel industry, Williams said. The two ideas that were devel oped: Recreation (sports tourna ments) and expanding the Southside Sports Complex; the other idea was the events center proposal. The TDC appointed a committee to handle the fact finding tasks associ ated with both concepts. The TDC decided they only want ed to concentrate on the recreation side, Williams said. The board of county commissioners decided they would go ahead and continue with the events center side. The commission appointed a fact finding committee and the commit tee has been collecting data for more than a year to complete the back ground to see whether an events facil ity is feasible. Several sites are being considered as possible locations for the events building, including pos sible sites in the Ellisville area that have interstate frontage. The construction of an events facil ity would allow the county to hold conventions, shows, exhibitions and a number of other events. Its wouldnt be unlike another convention center youve seen, except probably it will be on a much smaller scale than those, Williams said. Its not going to be something that would hold 50,000 people. He said the center would be capa ble of housing graduations and there would be rooms available for rent to do weddings, business conferences and other events on a smaller scale. The idea is if you bring those events, the people will rent hotel rooms, buy gas, and spend money in retail stores, Williams said. onto the east shoulder, where it overturned and struck a tree with its roof.

By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comGAINESVILLE Mike Gillislee ran for 146 yards and two touchdowns and the Florida defense showed its mettle, allowing LSU to convert only two of 14 third downs as the Gators defeated the Tigers, 14-6, at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville on Saturday. Looking for a signature win under Will Muschamp, it was a Muschamp-style game that got it done for the Gators as the defense shut out LSU in the second half. Muschamp came into Gainesville saying he wants the Gators to be a physical football team that prides itself on running the ball and defense. Both were the determining factors in Floridas signature win since the coach took over for Urban Meyer last year. After being shut out in the first half, Floridas ground game began to take over under Gillislee in the third quarter. The senior capped an eight play, 85-yard touch-down drive with a 12-yard run with 5:15 remaining in the third quarter. With 4:27 left in the third quarter, Florida started its second scoring drive. Again it was Gillislee that would lead the Gators. He fin-ished with 45 yards on the drive including a 12-yard run to put Florida up 14-6 after Caleb Sturgis kicked the extra point with 13:18 Lake City Reporter SPORTS Sunday, October 7, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?ContactTim KirbySports Editor754email@example.com 1BSPORTS BRIEFS GATORS continued on 6B Florida shuts out LSU in second half for 14-6 victory.

Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER Lake City Reporter By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High came into Fridays contest against Ridgeview High looking to take back District 3-6A and make a statement. After a 52-17 demolishing of the Panthers, consider both missions accomplished. The Tigers only trailed at one point in the game and that was after the Panthers first drive when quarter-back Josh Moore nailed a 44-yard field goal to put Ridgeview up 3-0 with 6:03 left in the first quarter. That lead lasted 44 seconds until Ronald Timmons burst through the line and ran 70 yards to give Columbia a 7-3 lead. It felt so good to do something like that for my team, Timmons said. I just grabbed the ball and ran. Timmons finished the night with 15 carries for 241 yards and two scores. Columbias next drive began at its own nine with 1:50 remaining in the first quarter. A 10-play drive was highlighted by a 20-yard run from Timmons and a 26-yard pass from Jayce Barber to Darren Burch in his first game back since suffering a punctured lung against Buchholz High. Barber capped off the drive with a quarterback sneak, after hitting Alex Webber for 21 yards to the one-yard line. Braydon Thomas added the extra point for a 14-3 lead. Columbia kept the ball rolling in its direction on the next possession as five plays resulted in 75 yards and a 21-3 lead with 7:27 remaining in the first half. Braxton Stockton had an 18-yard run and Alex Webber caught his second pass for a 32-yard touchdown. The Panthers kept things interesting in the first half with a 13 play, 80-yard drive that would eat up 5:29 of the clock and cut the Tigers lead to 21-10 after Moore sneaked in a one-yard run. Columbia began to take Signature win for MuschampJASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFlorida running back Mike Gillislee (23) runs for a to uchdown in the Gators 14-6 over LSU in Gainesville on Saturday.

Associated PressThat next edition of LSUAlabama most likely wont be a 1 vs. 2 matchup. Florida made sure of that. The 10th-ranked Gators got their biggest victory yet under second-year coach Will Muschamp, beating the No. 4 Tigers 14-6 in Gainesville. LSU was one of four undefeated teams to fall in Saturdays early games. Iowa State handed No. 15 TCU its first loss, 37-23, to stop the Horned Frogs 12-game winning streak, which had been the longest in major college football.

Jordan Poyer had three interceptions, Sean Mannion passed for 270 yards and No. 14 Oregon State sur-vived a shaky start. Markus Wheaton had 95 yards receiving and a touchdown but it was the Beavers defense which kept the Cougars at arms length on the day when Mannion, who threw three intercep-tions, was more down than up. Oregon State (4-0, 3-0 Pac-12) has surpassed its win total from all of 2011. Mannion completed 25 of 42 passes and was sacked three times. Jeff Tuel was 11 of 17 for 126 yards after replac-ing Connor Halliday, who threw three interceptions in just over one half of action.

The Gamecocks (6-0, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) won their school-record 10th straight game with a performance that marked them an Eastern Division front-runner and maybe showed theyre capable of even more. Those tests come soon as South Carolina travels to once-beaten LSU next week and then to Florida on Oct. 20. Itd be hard to pick against the Gamecocks after this one. South Carolina grounded Gurshall, holding Georgias stellar freshmen Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall to 76 yards com-bined. The Bulldogs (5-1, 3-1) finished with 224 yards, less than half their seasons average coming in. Marcus Lattimore ended with 109 yards and a touch-down, the third straight time hes gone past the century mark on the Bulldogs. The Gamecocks have posted their first-ever three game win streak in the series that began in 1894? The Gamecocks 10th straight victory surpasses a school best set with their 9-0 start in 1984. Steve Spurriers Gamecocks look capable at a championship run this season. There are plenty of hurdles ahead. Still, South Carolina showed the brand of championship defense usually found on the SECs best teams. Georgia came in with a league-leading 48.2 points and 536 yards a game of offense and where shut down by the Gamecocks. Gurley and Marshall kept pounding the line to little effect, held scoreless after combining for 294 yards and five TDs in last weeks win over Tennessee. Aaron Murray was 11 of 31 for 109 yards. He was sacked twice and threw one interception.

Mike Glennon found Bryan Underwood for a 2-yard touchdown pass on fourth down with 16 seconds left, helping North Carolina State rally to beat third-ranked Florida State 17-16 on Saturday night. The Seminoles (5-1, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) appeared poised to strengthen their grip on their division, leading 16-0 at halftime behind a dominating defensive performance. But the Wolfpack (4-2, 1-1) inched closer after halftime before coming up with a game-turning blocked punt with 2:27 left, giving the ball back to Glennon at the FSU 43 with a chance to complete a stunning comeback. Glennon marched the Wolfpack down the field and completed a pair of fourth-down passes, the second when he found Underwood alone over the middle to tie the game and take the lead on the ensu-ing point-after kick. FSU drove near midfield in the final seconds, but the Wolfpack defense knocked down EJ Manuels desper-ation heave near the goal line to end it. Smith leads West Virginia over TexasAssociated PressAUSTIN, Texas Geno Smith passed for four touchdowns, leading No. 8 West Virginia to another wild shootout win in the Big 12, this time tak-ing out No. 11 Texas 48-45 on Saturday night. Smith, who has 24 touchdown passes this season without an interception, hit Stedman Bailey with a 6-yard score with 10:50 left to play. Andrew Buie ran for 207 yards and two touch-downs, the second coming giving the Mountaineers a critical 10-point lead late. West Virginia (5-0, 2-0) didnt seal the win until recovering an onside kick with 14 seconds left after Texas scored a touchdown on a pass from David Ash to Marquise Goodwin. Joe Bergeron scored four touchdowns, all on short runs, for Texas (4-1, 1-1), which is 2-7 at home in conference games the since 2010. Smith was 25-of-35 passing for 268 yards in a game he had to be sharp. Texas aggressive defense hit him early and often and forced a second quarter fumble that the Longhorns recov-ered for a touchdown. But just as he did when West Virginia ran up 70 points on Baylor a week earlier, Smith made all the big throws when the Mountaineers needed them in a game where every possession was criti-cal. West Virginia went 5 for 5 on fourth downs. Buie averaged 6.7 yards against a Texas defense that continues to struggle with tackling.

I cant say enough how much I believe in the current Columbia High coaching staff. Its showing up every week. Each time the Tigers take the field, there are signs of improvement. Its the little things that theyre doing better. Its the mistakes they are fixing on a week in and week out basis. It all starts at the top with head coach Brian Allen, but hell be the first to tell you that the staff around him is one of a kind. Columbia is in the fortunate situation of having a staff loaded with former college players and theres NFL experience to go with it from some on the staff. Its not every day that high-school players get to play for an entire staff made up of players that know what it takes to get to the next level. Often times, staffs are comprised of teachers and volunteers. To say that the Columbia staff knows the game of football is an understatement. But the truly great thing about this staff, is that they know how to get the best out of their players. Columbia is beggining to peak at the right time and the last three games are prime examples. Columbia started the season with a 2-1 record with its only loss coming in a 17-14 game against the states No. 1 ranked Gainesville High. After a beatdown of an overmatched Buchholz High team, the Tigers broke into district play. Thats where the maturity of this team began. Clinging to a 19-13 lead late in the Oakleaf High game, the Tigers made a goal-line stand on the road in a hostile environment. It showed that the Tigers could overcome adversity. A week later, the Tigers went on the road and trailed Vanguard High 20-7 entering the fourth quarter. Columbia scored 21-unanswered points to once again overcome adversity. This week, Columbia had a chance for revenge. It was a chance to show how far the Tigers have come since finishing as district runner-up last season. Ridgeview High handed Columbia its only district loss last season and in doing so, the Tigers had to go on the road for the playoffs. This year, the Panthers entered 5-0 and left with a 52-17 whipping. In its biggest game of the year, Columbia was all business. It showed the growth it has made since spring workouts. More importantly, the team realizes that it needs to keep growing to reach its ultimate goal a trip to the state championship. over in the second half with its running game and defense. Columbia came out and hammered it down the Panthers throat on its first possession. Timmons began the drive with a 35-yard run and fin-ished it with a run from 14-yards out to put Columbia up 28-10. Marquez Cobb added Ridgeviews last points to the board with a 52-yard touchdown run with 3:07 remaining in the third quarter. After a three-and-out by the Tigers, the Panthers looked like they might draw the game close, but Trey Marshall came up with a fumble to give the ball back over to the Tigers. To be honest, they kind of caught me, but I was able to recover and rip the ball out, Marshall said. After Marshall forced the turnover, the Tigers began to add to their lead. Stockton helped the Tigers take only one play with a 46-yard touchdown run to give Columbia a 35-17 lead at the end of the third quarter. Ridgeview attempted a fourth down on its next pos-session at its 25-yard line but Roc Battle broke up the pass to set the Tigers up in scoring position. This time, Columbia would settle for a field goal and Thomas connected from 27 yards. After another fourthdown stop, Columbia took over and Timmons put the punctuation point on his night with a 50-yard score. For good measure, Columbia added a scoring drive starting with 1:54 remaining in the contest. Burch carried it four times for 51 yards on the series and capped off the drive with a four-yard score for the 52-17 final. Their coach said that this was the best team he has ever coached, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said after the game. Well, this is the best team Ive ever coached. Were we flawless tonight? No, but we were pretty close. Now, we need to come back and finish out the district. Columbia heads into a bye week before heading to take on Middleburg High at 7 p.m. on Oct. 18.

Defense shines in second halfBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comLast year, Felix Woods had to watch from the sideline as Columbia High watched its chances at a district championship slip away at the hands of Ridgeview High. This year, the senior helped the Tigers do some-thing about it in a 52-17 win against the Panthers at Tiger Stadium. After quarterback Josh Moore rushed for 61 yards and passed for 68 yards in the first half, the Tigers defense sunk in its claws to hold Moore to negative yardage rushing and only 31 yards passing in the second half. There werent really adjustments, Woods said. We were missing assign-ments and we just had to settle down. Drew Clark, who has shown up big for the Tigers over the last two games, said Columbia knew it was time to up the intensity after going into the half up only 21-10. We had to kick it up a notch, he said. We had to play like we did in the sec-ond half against Vanguard. The chance for revenge motivated Woods through-out the contest. It feels good to go out and get this one as a senior after not being able to play in this game last year, Woods said. Clark missed much of the season with a concussion, so being back on the field at all is big for him. To pos-sibly have nailed down the district meant even more. Its just good to be back, Clark said. It feels good to be notice and we want to leave here with a bang. Despite the win, the duo knows that the road to a district championship is not over even though the chal-lenge may have been made easier. We still have work to do, Woods said. We cant slack off. We have to keep working just as hard and cant get a big head. Clark echoed Woods statement. We have to stay focused, he said. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Ronald Timmons (23) outruns a Ridgev iew High defender on the way to a 70-yard touchdown. Timmons turning heads for Tigers By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comIn last weeks 171-yard performance against Vanguard High, the only thing Columbia Highs Ronald Timmons was look-ing back at was opposing defenders. Timmons backed up his career high with another record-setting perfor-mance this week by rush-ing for 241 yards and two touchdowns on only 15 carries against Ridgeview High in the Tigers 52-17 win. To be honest, I think I can do this all the time, Timmons said. After his performance during the last two weeks, its hard to argue. The running back didnt know he had broken the 200-yard barrier until told after the game. Even still, he wasnt too worried about the numbers game. My goal is to help as much as I can to help this team win state, he said. As far as how many yards he thinks he can rush for this season, Timmons isnt setting a cap. The sky is the limit, he said. It feels great and Im never going to give up. Im just doing the best that I can do. It all starts in practice according to his position coach Quinton Callum. This is a guy who is a workhorse in practice, Callum said. He does it every day and hes worked hard in the weight room. It doesnt hurt that hes running behind (Laremy) Tunsil and that big offen-sive line or that he can run 4.4 speed. Callum also said the return of fullback Darren Burch this week benefits the running game as a whole, which also featured Braxton Stockton running for 110 yards on eight car-ries. Burch even got into the running game with four carries for 51 yards. Burch helps a heck of a lot, Callum said. We can open the playbook and hes a guy that knows the system. But on a night when Columbia took a big step to assure itself the district, it was all about Timmons. Like I said last week, you just see him do this every day in practice, Tunsil said. Tunsil was especially happy for Timmons per-formance to help get a monkey off his back against Ridgeview. Theyve got the best of us since 10th grade, Tunsil said. It felt great to finally get these guys, and to score 50, oh my God. For head coach Brian Allen, Timmons year was all just a matter of time. In his ninthand 10thgrade years, not a lot of people knew who he was, Allen said. He comes from a great football family around here. Hes battled through adversity and busted his butt in the weight room. Hes totally dedicated himself and hes finally reaping the benefits. Allen said that it was matter of Timmons buying in and now that he has, he could continue to put up these kind of numbers. Thats what the cornerstone of our program is all about, Allen said. He committed himself to work-ing hard this summer and bought in. Initially when I got here, he was still in the other mind set, so we had some apprehension with him, but hes shown that he cares and has worked his butt off. That just shows that if you work your butt off, its going to pay off.
remaining in the game. LSU had a chance with 20 seconds remaining in the game. Zach Mettenberger passed to Odell Beckham who attempted a hook-andladder but Neiron Ball fell on the loose ball to ensure the win. We won the game in the second half is what Im most proud of, Muschamp said. A lot of that was due to the Gators ability to run the ball in the second half when Florida went to the ground for 22 straight plays. We made some adjust ments in the second half, and we felt like the run ning game was there, Muschamp said. The first half showed that Floridas defense had returned to an elite level, holding LSU to only 81 yards in the half. The turn over battle proved to be the difference as the Gators put the ball on the ground twice with fumbles from Frankie Hammond and Jeff Driskel. LSU came out with a 78-yard drive to begin the game, but sputtered throughout the rest of the half as the Tigers failed on all seven of their third-down attempts. The first drive resulted in a Drew Allen field goal from 31 yards to give the Tigers a 3-0 lead. Floridas offense sput tered throughout much of the first half, but punter Kyle Christy was the games MVP through two quarters for the Gators. He averaged 49.3 yards per punt includ ing a career high 61-yard punt. Christy pinned the Tigers inside their 10-yard line on three occasions. Florida twice had the ball within range for kick er Caleb Sturgis including a drive starting at 9:45 in the second quarter that reached the LSU 22-yard line. Driskel hit Hammond on a quick pass to the left and Hammond fumbled. Floridas next mistake was even more costly as the Tigers had a coverage sack on Driskel after he failed to get rid of the ball on time and Barkevious Mingo recovered a fumble at the Gators 7-yard line. An attempted jump pass failed on third-and-goal and the Gators avoided serious damage. Allen converted a second field goal, this time from 21 yards to give LSU a 6-0 lead at the half. Weve got to give LSU a lot of credit, theyve won 18 straight regular season football games for a rea son, Muschamp said. 6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2012 Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 6BSPORTS GATORS: Snap LSUs winning streak Continued From Page 1B JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter CHS senior cheerleaders Columbia High School senior cheerleaders pose for a photograph before the start of the football game against Ridgeview High School on Friday.

Bidding for outdoor writers convention Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites General Manager Rod Butler and I will be making a proposal to the Board of Directors of the Florida Outdoor Writers Association at the groups annual convention this month in Titusville. Lake City is expected to be one of three com munities in the state vying to host the organizations 2014 state convention. The meeting traditionally brings together more than 100 outdoor journalists from around Florida, not only for the conference itself, but also for pre-conference and post-conference activities. Monthly tourism update TOURISM continued on 2C Local retailers prepping for holidays By LAURA HAMPSON firstname.lastname@example.org Although October has just begun, retailers locally and across the county are gearing up for the winter holiday shopping season. Americans are expect ed to spend more during whats traditionally the bus iest shopping season of the year, but theyre not exactly ready to shop til they drop like they have been in the past two years. The National Retail Federation, the nations largest retail trade group, said it expects sales during the winter holiday shopping period in November and December to rise 4.1 per cent this year. Thats more than a percentage point lower than the growth in each of the past two years, and the smallest increase since 2009 when sales were up just 0.3 percent. Local business owner George Ward said he ordered heavily in July and is anticipating a decent sea son. He said new products are already coming into Wards Jewelry and Gifts in downtown Lake City. Typically after an elec tion business gets better, no matter who goes in, Ward said. Ordering the right amount of the right products takes experience, but there are still uncer tainties. Its really a gam ble, he said. The projections are an important indicator for retailers that depend on the last two months of the year for up to 40 percent of their annual sales. But the esti mates also offer valuable insight for economists who closely watch consumer spending, which accounts for up to 70 percent of eco nomic activity. Stores are already offer ing enticements to lure holiday shoppers. Kmart, Toys R Us and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. have announced last month theyre either lowering or waiving the upfront ser vices fees for their inter est-free pay-over-time pro gram. All three said the moves were in response to complaints from shoppers. Layaway programs help ease the financial burden of large purchases, like professional-quality instru ments, said Steve Briscoe, owner of 1st Street Music & Sound Co. in Lake City. Briscoe said this year the store will have a 12 weeks of Christmas program to spotlight new arrivals as well their annual layaway program without fees or interest. Briscoe said while it is early in the shopping sea son, this is when the inven tory starts coming in as stock is needed for early shoppers and the layaway program. Were definitely gearing up, he said. During the summer ven dors offered up their pre dictions for the hot holiday items and the music store placed its orders, he said. I think its going to be a little bit better Christmas for everybody all the way around, Briscoe said. The holiday shopping season is one gauge of not only the shopping habits, but also the mindset of the average American during what has turned out to be a slow and uneven economic recovery. Right now, peo ple are feeling better about rising home prices and a rebounding stock market, but job growth is still weak and prices for everything from food to gas are high er. And all the economic vari ables that will likely have an impact on this years shop ping season make predict ing sales that much more difficult. Among them, the worry that the U.S. econ omy will fall into another recession next year. Thats when tax increases and deep government spending cuts will take effect unless Congress reaches a budget deal. Still, Americans are more optimistic than they have been in a long time. Consumers confidence rose to a seven-month high in September even as the unemployment rate has been stuck at around 8 percent, according to the Conference Board.

That holds great promise, as analysts see Aubagios future sales near $400 million by 2016, when some expect the overall global MS market to reach $17.3 billion. Sanofi recently hit the skids with its dengue fever vaccine. It had expected more than $1.3 billion in annual sales from the product, but a Phase IIb trial produced disappointing results. Still, the vaccine proved highly effective against three of the virus strains, another trial is under way, and the World Health Organization estimates 50 million to 100 million new cases of the disease a year. Pipeline strength is critical to drug companies, and Sanofi has more than 45 drugs, vaccines and other products in various stages of devel-opment. (Remember that not all drugs make it through development and win FDA approval.) Sanofis going to need that pipeline to combat expiring patents. Its Plavix blood thinners patent expired in May, with the drug having generated nearly $7 billion in the U.S. alone. Sanofi has also performed well with its acquisitions. Recently purchased Genzyme, for example, delivered more than 8 percent of Sanofis pharmaceutical revenue in 2011. With a dividend yield near 4 percent, Sanofi warrants consideration.

My shares were worth pennies on the dollar when it was bought by American Greetings, so I didnt even get a piece of that! N.H., Lynnwood, Wash. The Fool Responds: Hanging on to Drugstore.com may not have paid off much. It was acquired by Walgreen last year, for more than twice its going price on the market, but by then it had been trad-ing in the low single digits. Only some of those who had bought it after it plunged did well. Buying such troubled companies can be a big gamble, though. There are often good reasons why a stock plunges, and its up to interested investors to determine whether the companys problems are likely to be fleeting or permanent. Stocks trading for just a few dollars per share can be especially risky. Remember that there are lots of compelling companies out there, ones that are healthy, growing and undervalued. Perhaps seek them out, instead.Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way? Boil it down to 100 words (or less) and send it to The Motley Fool c/o My Dumbest Investment.

LIFE Sunday, October 7, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D Story ideas? Contact Robert Bridges Editor 754-0428 firstname.lastname@example.org Lake City Reporter 1DLIFE Sandy Kishton H ow well can you handle long periods of silence? Can you toler ate someone else singing in the car? Are you a late sleeper or up at the crack of dawn? A late night par tier or more of homebody? These are all questions you should ask yourself before choosing your travel partner when taking a road trip. Im sure its not some thing you would think about at first. When taking most of our vacations my husband, Scott, is my first choice in a travel partner. However, thats not the case on a road trip. Hes more concerned with the destination, but Im all about the journey. Going with family mem bers can also be a chal lenge. Youve heard the saying, you can pick your friends, but you cant pick your family, well for a road trip, PICK A FRIEND! In my case, I picked my best friend, Sue. Crazy enough, we didnt have many periods of silence. Youd think wed have run out of things to talk about, but that has never been the case. Neither one of us can sing very well actually we are pretty bad but just laugh about it. When weve hit the most rural of places and cant get a radio station to come in, well use the i-pod and access our go-to playlist for the road. Sue did have to get used to my touristy ways, including all of the photo ops along the way; espe cially the infamous giants along Historic Route 66. The first time I made her get out of the car for a picture with a state wel come sign I thought shed shoot me. But shes got her posing down pat. I also had to climb more stairs (rather than take the elevator) than I ever imagined after learning about her claustro phobic tendencies. She also figured out pretty quickly that Im not big on heights when I scooted around the Skywalk at the Grand Canyon at record pace. Im such a planner, or control freak if you want to know the truth! She already knew that about me, though. I take prepara tion and organization to an extreme. So much so, that I have a folder for every day of our trip. It might contain maps, articles about the area we are driving through or visiting, the hotel reserva tions and anything else Ive managed to Google online and thought was important. I dont want to miss any thing! We may not stop at everything, but at least we have that option. Im not so structured that I cant fly by the seat of my pants either. We are both flexible enough to make our final Pick the perfect travel partner TRAVEL continued on 2D I n Florida, gardeners have the opportunity to attract a wide vari ety of wildlife to their properties. Their motion and activ ity adds interest and enjoyment as we view our surroundings. Gardeners also know that a larger diversity of life creates a healthier habitat for crit ters and plants. Animals need water, food, and some cover that offers them safety. By providing these resources for wildlife on your property, you may attract more than you had hoped. A few nuisance creatures that are pests or cause damage in your yard may show up to enjoy your hospitality, also. They may feast on your favorite trees, flowers or vegetables, rut in the yard, eat your desirable wildlife guests, create hazardous holes in the landscape, and make your life miserable. Nuisance wildlife may include wild hogs, coyotes, moles, gophers, squirrels, armadillos, rabbits, deer, birds and many more. Wildlife, including nests, eggs, and young are pro tected by both federal and state laws. Many species may be destroyed if they are caus ing damage, but a permit may be needed. Permits can often be obtained if you document the damage and you have tried encour aging them to leave by using other methods. Do some homework before acting and save yourself a fine. Laws can be found online at: http://myfwc. com/conservation/youconserve/assistnuisancewildlife. There is a wide array of tactics that can be used to convince nuisance wildlife that they should move on. But the first step is to identify the culprit. With a little Sherlock Holmes work at the scene of the damage, you can figure out the species from tracks and droppings left behind, or scratching and bite marks. Check out the area for burrows, holes and tun nels. A great site to help identify wildlife is http:// icwdm.org/ Figure out what makes your property so appealing to the particular animal that you identified. This will have some thing to do with food, water or cover. Do you have a birdbath where it gets water? Or an unmowed area where it is finding plenty of small rodents to eat? Determine how can you change or modify the habitat so it wont be so appealing and this animal will move on. Barriers such as fences or nets may work in your situation, but many options are expensive. Scare tac tics such as fake preda tors, shiny streamers, and sound alarms may work temporarily to keep ani mals away as well as taste and odor repellents. Animals get used to these after time, so employ more than one tactic at a time and diligently keep moving their location around. Keep the element of surprise on your side and keep the animal con fused. If you keep at it, it just may go away and give you some peace. Call the Extension Office at 352-5384 or Florida Fish and Wildlife for more information on managing nuisance wild life. D.

GARDEN TALK Nichelle Demorest email@example.com Strategies for unwelcome garden critters Olustee monument 100 years later By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org OLUSTEE T he Battle of Olustee occurred more than 148 years ago, on Feb. 20, 1864, in Baker County. What started out as a series of small skirmishes quickly escalated through the hours into the only major Civil War battle fought on Florida soil when Confederate forces repelled Union troops who were headed westward to capture the capital in Tallahassee. A combined total of 2,807 troops from both sides lay on the battlefield either dead or wounded following five hours of gunfire, cannon shots and more. About 48 years after the Battle of Olustee, a monu ment was erected at the Olustee Battlefield paying homage to Confederate troops. The monument was originally dedicated Oct. 23, 1912. Next weekend the Olustee Battlefield Monument will be rededicated during the 100year Anniversary of the dedication of the Olustee Battlefield Monument. The rededication cer emony will take place from 11 a.m. 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13 at the Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park. On Oct. 13 Im look ing to have 100 men in uniform with 100 rifles and some cannons and were going to do a 100gun salute, said Larry Rosenblatt, 16th Brigade commander of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and a member of the Capt. Winston Stephens SCV camp in Baker County, who helped organize the event. Im looking to have 100 troops here, at least, and we would like to fire one round for every year this monument has been here. The program also includes several speakers who will address the audi ence detailing a history of the park and monument as well as a synopsis of the battle. Kelly Barrow, First Lt. Commander and chief of the National SCV is the scheduled keynote speaker for the event. According to a United Daughters of the Confederacy magazine article, in 1897 the Florida Division of the UDC began raising money to place a monument on the battlefield and the Florida Legislature appropriated $2,500 for the monument. Linda Rosenblatt, Larrys wife and a member of the UDC, said UDC information indicates many public officials, dignitar ies, UDC members and veterans and their families attended the dedication on Oct. 23, 1912, where U.S. Senator Duncan U. Fletcher made the keynote address. Documents said Fletcher remarked: This granite tower... stands sentinel over the field where the Confederate soldier won admission to the temple of fame. The monument faces the south and is about 40-feet tall. It has a white marble slab panel, facing the south, which contains an inscription detailing the battle, the amount of troops for each side and the commander officers of the forces. The inscription: The Battle of Olustee was fought on this ground February 20th, 1864, between 5,000 Confederate troups [sic] commanded by Joseph E. Finnegan and 6,000 Federal troups under General Truman Seymore. The Federals were defeated with a loss of 2,000 men. The Confederate loss was less than 1,000. The northern side of the monument contains a panel with the inscription: To the men who fought and triumphed here in defence [sic] of their homes and firesides. This monument is erected by the United Daughters of the Confederacy aided by the State of Florida in commemoration of their devotion to the cause of lib erty and state sovereignty. MCMXII Granite strips on the side of the monument com memorate the Confederate units that found in the battle. Larry Rosenblatt said Gen. Colquitt, from Georgia, saved the battle for the Confederate troops. Most of the men that were fighting at the first of the battle were home guards, old men out of the hospital and young kids, he said. This dedication is something that we wanted to do. We felt like some body needed to do it. TOP: Larry Rosenblatt and his wife, Linda, stand next to the Olustee Battlefield Monument. A rededication ceremony for the monument will take place from 11 a.m. 3 p.m. Saturday. The Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park was the first park in the Florida State Park system.

Oxendine-Frost Wedding announcements By LORI HINNANT Associated Press PARIS French chil dren go to school four days a week. They have about two hours each day for lunch. And they have more vacation than their counter parts almost anywhere in the West. It may sound a bit like the famously leisurely work pace enjoyed by their par ents, most of whom work 35 hours per week as dic tated by law. But the nations new gov ernment says elementary school kids risk classroom burnout, and is moving to help them cope. The issue: French school days may be relatively few, but they are at least as long as a day of work for adults. Even 6year-olds are in class until late into the afternoon, when skies are dark, atten tion flags and stomachs rumble. As a candidate, President Francois Hollande prom ised to change things by adding a fifth day of classes on Wednesday while short ening the school day. For France, its something of a revolutionary idea that would overturn more than a century of school tradi tion. The thinking is that the days are too full for young children under the current system and that Wednesday free time could be put to more productive use. France has the shortest school year and the longest day, Hollande said at the time, promising change. His education minister, Vincent Peillon, will decide this month how to carry out the reform. He has said he may also compensate for a shorter school day by trimming Frances sacred summer vacation. A panel of experts will present their conclusions on Friday, and the president is expected to address the issue on Tuesday. No proposal affects tradi tion and potentially fam ily and municipal budgets as much as what the French call changes to the scholastic rhythms. Theres been a midweek break in French primary schools dating back to the 19th century, a government concession to the Roman Catholic Church, which wanted children to study the catechism on their week day off. In todays secular France, Wednesdays cur rently are a blur of sports, music, tutoring for families of means, or a scramble for working parents strug gling to get by who must either find a sitter or send their kids to a full day at a state-run leisure center. Things arent exactly easy for French kids. Despite long summer breaks and the four-day school week, French ele mentary school students actually spend more hours per year in school than average 847, compared with 774 among countries in OECD, a club of wealthy nations. But the time is compressed into fewer days each year. The French school day begins around 8:30 and ends at 4:30 p.m., even for the youngest, despite studies showing the ability of young chil dren to learn deteriorates as the day goes on. But many parents are afraid that the changes will force them to figure out extra childcare five days a week, especially at schools where the afterschool pro gram amounts to sitting silently at a desk for two hours or near-chaos in the play areas. Under the education proposal, school would end at lunchtime on France looks to upend school year traditions ASSOCIATED PRESS Students enter the school of La Ronce in Ville dAvray, west of Paris, Friday. French children go to school four days a week with about two hours each day for lunch. And they have more vacation than their counterparts almost anywhere in the West. As a candidate, President Francois Hollande promised to change things by adding a fifth day of classes on Wednesday while shortening the school day and education minister, Vincent Peillon, will decide this month how to carry out the reform. Wednesday. Its completely unreal istic, Valerie Marty, presi dent of the national par ents organization, said of the proposed timetable. They have to figure out who will take care of the children after school, who will finance it. In France, the answer is usually the government. The state is expected to provide for just about everything education-relat ed: Classes come under the national budget, and lunches and leisure are the domain of municipalities. So if school lets out most days at 3:30 p.m., under the plan most recently floated, more working par ents than ever would need afterschool care and towns would have to figure out what to do with rest less children. That would almost certainly involve something more construc tive than sitting quietly at desks, kicking around a ball, or playing cards until the evening when parents get out of work. The Education Ministry has proposed more orga nized extracurricular activi ties like sports, theater and art to replace the relatively free-form time children now have after school. But that means trained staff and, of course, more money from local budgets already strained in difficult eco nomic times. Marty, who has three children, proposes some thing entirely different: lengthening lunch to three hours. After a meal, children have a moment when theyre tired. Theyre not ready for intellectual activi ties and could do some thing more relaxing, she said, suggesting theater, or quiet time in a library for others. Afterward, she said, classes could resume until evening. Trimming the hallowed summer break is another tricky proposition. The school year ends at the beginning of July. Some families take July off, some August. But nearly every one takes a month, and many French families travel for the entire period. Peillon said he was flex ible about vacation time: If the question of vacation is blocking things, Ill pro pose that the prime minis ter leave it alone. Eric Charbonnier, an OECD education expert, supports the proposed changes. He believes the current system isnt work ing for the children most in need of a good education.
Page Editor: Laura Hampson, 754-0427 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2012 3D'/,)(By KAREN MATTHEWSAssociated PressNEW YORK Thousands of teenagers who cant take their cell-phones to school have another option, courtesy of a burgeoning industry of sorts in always-enterpris-ing New York City: paying a dollar a day to leave it in a truck thats parked nearby. Students might resent an expense that adds up to as much as $180 a year, but even so, leaving a phone at one of the trucks in the morning and then picking it up at the end of the day has become as routine for city teenagers as getting dressed and riding the morning-rush subway. Sometimes its a hassle because not everyone can afford it, said Kelice Charles, a freshman at Gramercy Arts High School in Manhattan. But then again, its a living. Cellphones and other devices, such as iPods and iPads, are banned in all New York City public schools, but the rule is widely ignored except in the 88 buildings that have metal detectors. Administrators at schools without detec-tors tell students, If we dont see it, we dont know about it. Schools where violence is considered a risk have metal detectors to spot weapons, but they also spot phones. They include the Washington Irving Educational Complex in the bustling Union Square area, a cluster of small high schools housed in a mas-sive century-old building that used to be one big high school. The trucks that collect the cellphones have their own safety issues one was held up in the Bronx in June, and some 200 stu-dents lost their phones. That could be why one operator near Washington Irving refused to speak to a reporter recently. A converted disabilityaccess van thats parked a block away on school days is painted bright blue and labeled Pure Loyalty Electronic Device Storage. The owner is Vernon Alcoser, 40, who operates trucks in three of the citys five boroughs. Alcoser would not comment, even though the names of news out-lets that have run stories about Pure Loyalty are affixed to his trucks. Pure Loyalty employees chatted but would not give their names as students from the Washington Irving com-plex lined up on a drizzly morning to surrender their phones. Next, next, have the phone off, have the money out, an employee yelled as the teens texted and lis-tened to music until the last possible second. At the truck window, each student exchanged a phone and a dollar for a numbered yel-low ticket. Its not that much of a hassle unless its really crowded, said Gramercy Arts sophomore Chelsea Clouden. My whole four years Ive been putting my phone in this truck, and its been great, said Melquan Thompson, a senior at the High School for Language and Diplomacy. Only a dol-lar. Its not bad. The cellphone trucks appear to be unique to New York City. That is hilarious, said Debora Carrera, a high school principal in Philadelphia who had never heard of a phone storage truck. Wow. It is very strange. At Carreras school, Kensington Creative and Performing Arts High School, students operate a cellphone storage room where phones can be dropped off in the morning at no charge and picked up after school. For many teens, it would be unthinkable to leave the devices at home all day, Carrera said. Their phone is like a family member, she said. Its like a pet. They love it. For parents, the phone may be the only way of communicating with a teen who commutes two hours to school and gets home at 8 p.m., after sports practice. In this day and age, its ridiculous that the Department of Education doesnt allow us to store them on site, said Robin Klueber, the PTA president at Frank McCourt High School on Manhattans Upper West Side. Frank McCourt, named for the late writer and teacher, shares a metal-detector building with sev-eral other schools. Some students store their phones in a truck, and others use a nearby shoe store, Klueber said. She wishes the city Department of Education would let the PTA run a storage room instead. In this day and age, especially when many of us still feel the scare of 9/11, students should be able to travel with their phones, Klueber said. Many of these kids come from other boroughs and participate in after-school activities where they are far from home late into the evening. The Department of Education did not com-ment on whether lockbox-es in schools were being considered. Spokeswoman Marge Feinberg said only, We have a longstand-ing policy that does not allow students to use cell-phones in schools. It is in Chancellors Regulation A-412, and there are no plans to change this.A phone home: NY teens pay valets to store devices ASSOCIATED PRESSStudents from New Yorks Washington Irving educational co mplex line up to leave their cellphones and other electronic devices, for a dollar a day per item, in a privately operated truck parked near their school.

Outside those schools, entrepreneurs park trucks where students drop off devices before class and get them back at the end of the day. By RAPHAEL SATTERAssociated PressLONDON In a remote fishing town on the tip of Scotlands Black Isle, the last native speaker of the Cromarty dialect has passed away, taking with him a little fragment of the English linguistic mosaic. Academics said Wednesday that Bobby Hogg, who was 92 when he died last week, was the last person fluent in the dialect once common to the seaside town of Cromarty, 175 miles (280 kilometers) north of Edinburgh. I think thats a terrible thing, said Robert Millar, a linguist at the University of Aberdeen in northern Scotland. The more diver-sity in terms of nature we have, the healthier we are. Its the same with lan-guage. The demise of an obscure dialect spoken by a few hundred people may not register for most English speakers Well all live, Millar said but its part of a relentless trend toward standardization which has driven many regional dia-lects and local languages into oblivion. Linguists often debate how to define and differentiate the worlds many dialects, but most agree that urbaniza-tion, compulsory education and mass media have con-spired to iron out many of the kinks that make rural speech unique. Cromarty, which counts just over 700 people, is at the very end of a sparsely populated peninsula of for-est and farmland. Its sepa-rated from Inverness, the closest city, by the Beauly Firth, a wide body of cold water where salmon run and dolphins frolic. The Cromarty dialect included a helping of archa-ic thees and thous as well as a wealth of seafaring vocabulary, including three sets of words for second fishing line. The aspirate h was often added or subtracted, so that house would be pro-nounced oos and apple would be pronounced hay-pel. The wh sound was often dropped entirely. A lexicon of Cromarty words, relying in large part on Hoggs speech, gave Oo thee keepan? as Cromartys version of How are you? and Hiv thoo a roosky sazpence i thi pooch? for Can you lend me some money? Urban dialects may be strong Millar referred to Toonserspik, the town speech of cities like Aberdeen but he said they dont replace whats being lost. He said urban dialects tend to be more similar to one another than their rural counterparts, with an emphasis on differences in pronunciation over dif-ferences in vocabulary. And even rival cities like Glasgow and Edinburgh sound more like each other than they used to. Author Mark Abley, who has written about the dyna-mism of the English lan-guage, agrees. I dont believe theres a straightforward balancing act in which urban dialects grow as rural ones shrink, he said in an email. Cities are always melting pots, and isolation for any group is very hard to maintain. As the worlds melting pots grow ever bigger half the Earths popula-tion now lives in cities lesser-known dialects are evaporating. Worldwide, languages are disappearing regularly, with half of the globes 6,000-plus languag-es expected to be extinct by the end of the century, according to UNESCO. The British Isles saw two languages go extinct within living memory, UNESCO says. The last native speak-er of Alderney French, a Norman dialect spoken in the Channel Islands, died around 1960, and the last speaker of traditional Manx, the language once spoken on the Isle of Man, died in 1974. Donna Heddle, the director of the Center for Nordic Studies at Scotlands University of the Highlands and Islands, said the loss of each language or regional dialect leaves the world poorer than it was before. Its one less little sparkle in the firmament, she said. One little star might go out and you might never notice it, but its not there anymore.Scottish man dies, taking towns dialect with him ASSOCIATED PRESSThis image released by Am Baile High Life Highland on Thursday Oct. 4 shows an undated image of Bobby Hogg, who recently passed away aged 92.

By ALISON LADMANFor The Associated PressWhen baking season brings thoughts of savory loaves of bread hot from the oven, we often overlook egg breads. But these rich, moist and yes, eggy loaves deserve serious consideration. They are satisfying in a way we typically associate with quick sweet breads, yet are versatile enough to accompany dinner and make delicious sandwiches. For this recipe, we studded a basic egg bread with four varieties of seeds sesame, sunflower, poppy and pumpkin. The seeds add a satisfying crunch without detracting from the moist crumb of the bread. But if youd rather leave out the seeds, feel free.FOUR-SEED EGG BREADStart to finish: 3 hoursServings: 161 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds1 tablespoon toasted sunflower seeds1 tablespoon poppy seeds2 tablespoons toasted pumpkin seeds (also called pepitas) 1/4-ounce packet instant yeast1/2 cup warm milk1/2 cup warm water4 egg yolks4 cups all-purpose flour2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil 2 tablespoons vegetable oil1/4 cup honey1 tablespoon saltIn a large bowl, combine the sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, pumpkin seeds and yeast. Stir in the milk and water, then mix in the egg yolks. When well mixed, add the flour, sesame oil, vegetable oil, honey and salt. Knead, either by hand or with a dough hook on an electric mixer on low speed, for 8 to 10 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise in a warm place for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until doubled in bulk. Meanwhile, coat a baking sheet with cook-ing spray. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured counter. Fold the dough over itself, then work into a ball. Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet. Cover the bread with plastic wrap and allow to rise again for 1 hour, or until risen and puffy. Toward the end of the rising time, heat the oven to 325 F. Using a paring knife, cut 2 deep slashes in the top of the load. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until deep golden and cooked through. Transfer to a rack to cool.

Moist, rich egg bread with seeds for fall By ALISON LADMANFor The Associated PressThis savory muffin studded with zucchini and cheddar cheese pairs as wonder-fully with dinner as it does breakfast. And consider taking advantage of all that extra zucchini piling up in the garden by baking a double batch. The moisture from the zuc-chini means these muffins freeze well. Want to make a whole-grain version? Substitute regular whole-wheat flour for half of the all-purpose flour. Or go all the way and use white whole-wheat flour in place of all of the all-purpose. White whole-wheat flour has the same nutrition as regu-lar whole wheat, but is made from a lighter grain that produces a flour that tastes and looks similar to white.ZUCCHINI CHEDDAR MUFFINSStart to finish: 45 minutesServings: 122 1/4 cups all-purpose flour1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder1/2 teaspoon baking soda1/4 cup sugar1 teaspoon salt2 eggs1 1/4 cups buttermilk 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted 1 cup packed shredded zucchini3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese Heat the oven to 400 F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners or coat with baking spray. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and buttermilk, then whisk in the melted butter. Gently fold the liquid mix-ture into the dry mixture, then fold in the zucchini and cheddar just enough to incorporate. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted at the center comes out clean.

DEAR ABBY: My Aunt Betty, with whom I have always been close, is 68 and retired. She is abus-ing prescription drugs and spends several days a week passed out or confused -sometimes hal-lucinating. I rarely call her anymore because all she does is mumble and make odd comments. Sometimes she passes out on the phone. My uncle is in denial. He comes from a generation where family problems are kept within the family. He refuses to seek profes-sional treatment for her or get her into detox. Aunt Betty doctor shops until she finds new doctors who load her up when the old ones wont cooperate. She does have genuine health issues that require meds, but her doctors have said she would never be stoned if she used them properly. Confronting my aunt when shes coherent only makes her angry. She denies shes abusing drugs because they are all prescription. Help! -DESPERATE NIECE IN FLORIDA DEAR DESPERATE: Start calling your aunt more often, because addic-tion is an illness and denial is one of the symptoms. Older people do react dif-ferently to medications than younger ones do, and a dose that might be tolerated when someone is middle-aged can be too great for a senior. Because your uncle isnt able to insist that your aunt get professional help, allow me to offer a sug-gestion. The next time she passes out during one of your phone conversations, do what youd normally do if someone else lost con-sciousness while talking to you. Call 911. When she winds up in the emergency room, her doctor will be alerted about the over-dose. It would be a first step in seeing her get the help she needs. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: Our wedding plans have taken a sudden turn. My fiancee, Carolyn, has a wealthy father with a reputation for being an extreme tightwad. Carolyn was pro-foundly touched when he offered to pay for most of the wedding expenses. Last night, Carolyns mother confessed to us that Carolyns father is not paying for the wedding. He is deducting the expenses from Carolyns inheritance from her grandmother. (The father is executor of her grandmothers estate.) He has no idea that his wife told Carolyn, and were sworn to secrecy because she will get into deep, deep trouble if he finds out she told. To make matters worse, he has the gall to make demands about the wed-ding as if he was paying for it himself. Carolyn is so deeply hurt by this deception that she doesnt even want her parents to attend the wedding. All of the joy has gone out of the wedding for her -and therefore, for me as well. Abby, how do you think we should handle this? -FLUMMOXED FIANCE IN NEW YORK DEAR FLUMMOXED FIANCE: I think you should elope. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Avoid confrontations with people you need to work alongside. Problems with contracts and partner-ships can be expected if you are overly sensitive regarding who does what. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The more versatile you are, the easier it will be to fit into a vocation that is in demand. Use your skills and practical abil-ity to get things done and someone will recognize what you have to offer. Love and romance are highlighted. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dont overdo it physi-cally. Stick to what you know and do not venture off the beaten trail. If you travel into unknown terri-tory, you will be faced with situations that are riddled with problems. Sorrow is apparent if honesty doesnt prevail. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may get your feelings hurt if you are too sensitive to criticism. Dont take the foolishness of someone else to heart. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Youll thrive on change, trying new things and meeting new people. Getting involved in a hobby, activity or event that gets you thinking about future prospects is your best bet. Expect someone who depends on you to feel jealous by your progress. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Dont spend money you dont have. Taking on too much and overdoing it will be your downfall. Organize your time wisely and add discipline to what-ever task you take on in order to ensure success. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Get out with friends and explore interests. Turn something you enjoy doing into a moneymaking endeavor. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Look for unusual sources of entertainment and you will meet someone offering alternatives that will help you apply what you do best to different end users. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Being evasive or running away from conflict will only add fuel to the fire. Honesty will be your best bet and help you resolve pending problems so you can get on with your life. Focus on per-sonal happiness. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Put greater effort into your goals and you will achieve success. Greater discipline coupled with experience will enable you to make the right choice when it comes to love, relationships and commitment. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Dont be misled by false information being used to tempt you to make a commitment. Stick close to home, and do the things that will add to your comfort and productivity. Change old ways to make room for new beginnings. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Do a little redecorat-ing or make a residential move that promises to improve your lifestyle. You can make money in an unusual way if you get involved in a domes-tic product or service. Concentrate on a money-making venture, love and romance. +++++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 First name in the White House 2OG1DY\VRZQHU13 Dandy16 Like one battery terminal: Abbr. 19 Start of a seasonal song 20 Tribute21 Source of some intolerance 23 What Katie Holmes lost in divorcecourt? 25 Unsteady26 Money of Laos27 Shoots in the foot28 Commuter on a FURZGHGEXVHJ" +XFN)LQQVIDWKHU.QLFNVYHQXHIRU short 7KURZLQWKHWRZHO6LQJRIROGBBBDQG WKHDQFLHQWZD\VYeats 3UHIL[ZLWKPHWHU36 Some modern memos 40 1946 Best Supporting Actornominee William %URVJUHHWLQJ45 Beam of support /HRQZKRZRQD Pulitzer for hisbiography of HenryJames $FWRU3DWHORI7KH Best Exotic0DULJROG+RWHO 'HDO\EREV51 Digit in military lingo 55 Epiphany?59 Some August QHZERUQV 6ODZHJ6WUHSWUHDWHUIRU short 65 Preschooler'UHDPLQJRI

By LEE REICH For The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA He was Americas first bota nist, and his garden is still one of the best. John Bartram was called the greatest natural bota nist in the world by no less than Carl Linnaeus, who in the 18th century devised our system for classifying plants. Bartrams garden is a convenient stop during a visit to Philadelphia, just minutes from the Liberty Bell. When he bought this tract along the Schuylkill River in 1728, it was rural land skirting the colonial city. Bartrams botanizing took him throughout what is now the eastern United States, and this land was where he grew the many plants and seeds he col lected in his travels. His son, William, was a knowledgeable companion for those travels. The notes and sketches that William made during a four-year journey throughout the South, beginning in 1773, were eventually published as Travels, a book that would be published in sev eral foreign editions as well. FIRST U.S. CATALOG PLANT NURSERY Among the Bartrams most exciting discoveries, in 1765, was the Franklinia tree (Franklinia alatamaha), which they found growing along the Alatamaha River in Georgia and named after their friend, Ben Franklin. William later revisited the beautiful trees and col lected seeds, which were planted in Philadelphia. For reasons unknown, this tree was never again seen in the wild after 1803, so the seeds William col lected are the source of all known Franklinia trees in existence today. (Franklinia, hardy to USDA zones 5-8, is a small to medium-size tree with white, fragrant, camellialike blossoms that open in mid-summer, and leaves that turn coppery red in fall. Good soil drainage is a must.) The Schuylkill River site also became a commercial plant nursery. Among the 220 species the Bartrams offered in 1783 were tulip poplar trees and poison ivy vines. (Admit it, poison ivy is a handsome plant much of the year.) Under the leadership of another son, John, Jr., Bartrams granddaughter, Ann, and her husband, Robert Carr, the nursery flourished. By the 1830s, 4,000 species of plants were being raised there, and there was greenhouse space for 10,000 potted plants. Bartrams nursery sup plied plants for such gardens as Jeffersons Monticello and Washingtons Mount Vernon. It was the first American nursery to pub lish a catalog. Compare that catalog now on dis play at Bartrams Garden and consisting of nothing more than a list of plants with the splashy photo graphs and hyperbole of catalogs today. COLONIAL TOFU, PERHAPS Native American plants were the mainstay of the gardens and nursery, but exotics also were grown. Soybeans, for exam ple, from seeds sent by Benjamin Franklin. Ben was thoughtful enough to include a recipe for tofu, as well. Another plant from China, a gingko tree, was planted in 1785 and sur vives today. It may be the oldest gingko tree in North America. Like many old gardens, Bartrams fell into disre pair for awhile. Industrial sprawl creeping along the Schuylkill threatened the site when family members lost interest in the nursery in the middle of the 19th century. To the rescue came Philadelphia industrialist Andrew Southwick, who bought the property, pro claiming, I dont want a solitary branch cut ... so that not a bush of this beloved old garden shall be disturbed. Unfortunately, with Southwicks death, the property was again sold, this time resulting in the loss of many plants. Salvation returned in 1891 when the property was bought by the City of Philadelphia. Restoration efforts were spurred by the discovery, in 1950, of a sketch made by William or John of their 8-acre botani cal garden. In addition to many of the plants grown by the Bartrams, the present Historic Bartrams Gardens also includes an education center housed in the stone barn built by John Bartram in 1775, as well as a wild flower meadow and the furnished Bartram home. More recently, a commu nity garden and orchard were added to the site. The Bartrams would have approved.

WASHINGTON Dorothys ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz are leaving Washington on their first international jour ney to Londons Victoria and Albert Museum. Judy Garland wore the shoes in the 1939 film in which she played a Kansas farm girl on a magical journey. The Smithsonians National Museum of American History announced the rare loan of its popular slippers Thursday. They will be shown with Dorothys blue-andwhite gingham dress in Hollywood Costume, an exhibit opening Oct. 20 in London. Curators say its the first time Dorothys dress and shoes have been together since the movie was filmed. The dress is part of a private collection. Oz was a movie mile stone for its extensive color sequences. To make the slippers, a designer dyed the shoes red and attached netting to cover them with red sequins. The Smithsonian plans to hold a departure ceremony Tuesday. The slippers will return Nov. 21. Associated Press Smithsonian to lend Dorothys ruby slippers
