By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.com As the state grapples with growing needs and a stagnant budget, North Florida is losing money that helps the work-ing poor send their children to child care programs. This year the Early Learning Coalition of Floridas Gateway lost 27 percent of its budget for subsidized child care in Columbia, Hamilton, Lafayette, Suwannee and Union counties. Over six years, the area would lose $1.8 million, according to a plan designed to reallocate money based on demographic changes across the state. That represents about 28 percent of the 2011-12 local budget for subsidized child care. State offi-cials met Monday in Lake City with child care providers and area early learning coalitions to discuss the changes. A state auditor general report found the formula that had been used for a decade to dis-tribute more than $628 million in School Readiness Funding to counties was not equitable, as required by state law. The School Readiness Program was created in 1999 by the state legislature to prepare children for school and enable parents to work and become financially self-sufficient. The program targets children of low-income families, children at risk for abuse or neglect and children with disabilities. The coalition would be able to serve about 400 fewer children after the cuts, said Dr. Thomas Logan, executive director of the Early Learning Coalition of Floridas Gateway. Currently, the coalition sends about 1,600 children in the five-county to day care with a budget of $6.8 million. Under the cuts, the area risks losing child care providers who might be unable to stay in busi-ness without the subsidizes, he said. For example, Union County has one large private child care provider. Without that center, Union County By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA group of thieves known by authorities across the state as The Felony Lane Gang are operating in Lake City, according to police. The group burglarized a local vehicle result-ing in more than $6,000 worth of fraudulent purchas-es to the owners checking and credit card accounts in less than 48 hours, authorities said. According to Lake City Police Department reports, the inci-dent occurred about 11:20 a.m. on Aug. 30 when Lisa Huchingson parked her vehicle in the front drive-way of the Kountry Kids Daycare and went inside. While she was inside, two witnesses said they saw a black, four-door vehicle pull up alongside Huchingsons vehicle. The driver got out and went directly into Huchingsons car, which was unlocked. Huchingsons check-book, Social Security card, drivers license, numerous credit cards and By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA fact-finding committee tasked with looking at the feasibility of constructing an events center in Columbia County unveiled a proposal Tuesday night to build a 265,000-square-foot, multi-purpose facility for $28.2 million. An estimated $23.6 million would be financed through bonds for at least 30 years, with $4.6 million coming from the sale of the current fairgrounds property. The debt service portion of the projects cost would come from funds from compa-nies that were given tax abatements, where the money they owed the county would go back into the event center project. County officials say they are continuing to digest information from the meeting and did not vote in favor of adding the proposal to the next board agenda. Preliminary estimates from SMG, an entertainment and convention venue man-agement company, indicated the operating costs for the first year of the event center would be in the red about $240,810, an estimated $58,712 in the red in its second year and $117,576 in the black during its third year. The fact-finding committee made its presentation to a group of elected officials, resi-dents, chamber of commerce and Columbia County Resources representatives Tuesday night. About a 100 people attended the meeting, which lasted about 90 minutes, at the Columbia County Resources entertain-ment building.

In what sounded at times like a locker room pep talk, Jerry Sandusky rambled in his red prison suit about being the underdog in the fourth quarter, about forgiveness, about dogs and about the movie Seabiscuit. With his accusers seated behind him in the courtroom, he denied committing dis-gusting acts against children and instead painted himself as the victim. And then, after he had said his piece, a judge sentenced him to 30 to 60 years in prison Tuesday, all but ensuring the 68-year-old Sandusky will spend the rest of his life behind bars for the child sexual abuse scandal that brought disgrace to Penn State and triggered the downfall of his former boss, football coach Joe Paterno. He leaves behind a trail of human and legal wreckage that could take years for the university to clear away. The tragedy of this crime is that its a story of betrayal. The most obvious aspect is your betrayal of 10 children, Judge John Cleland said after a hearing in which three of the men Sandusky was convicted of molesting as boys confronted him face to face and told of the lasting pain he had inflicted. The judge said he expects Sandusky to die in prison. In a disjointed, 15-minute address before he learned his sentence, Sandusky said: In my heart I did not do these alleged disgusting acts.

AROUND FLORIDA Hazing defendant pleads no contest ORLANDO The first of more than a dozen defendants charged in the hazing death of a Florida A&M drum major entered a plea of no contest Tuesday to third-degree felony hazing. A judge didnt impose a conviction on 23-year-old Brian Jones, of Parrish, who switched his plea from not guilty. Jones isnt admitting or denying guilt in the no-contest plea. Jones refused to comment after the hearing in an Orlando courtroom. Sentencing is set for Oct. 22. In agreeing to the deal, Circuit Judge Marc Lubet said Jones role in the hazing death of Robert Champion was relatively minimal. It is my understanding ... that there is no testimo-ny that he at any time beat or hit Mr. Champion. Is that correct? Lubet asked Jones attorney, Alisia Adamson. That is correct, she said. Champion died last November after being beaten by fellow band members during a hazing ritual aboard a bus parked outside an Orlando hotel following a football game. An autopsy concluded Champion suffered blunt trauma blows to his body and died from shock caused by severe bleeding. Ten other FAMU band members face felony haz-ing charges, while two others face misdemeanor counts for alleged roles in Champions hazing. Their trials are set for early next year. Champions death revealed a culture of haz-ing at Florida A&M and other schools. It also contributed to the abrupt resignation of the universitys president in July, the resignation of the bands longtime director and the suspension of the famed March 100 until next year.5 teens accused of attacking two HOLIDAY Police said five Pasco County teens face multiple charges in an attack on their neighbors over a home-grown mari-juana plant. According to police, three boys and two girls broke into a Holiday home Friday evening and dragged a woman out of the home. When a man ran out to help her, police said they beat him with a baseball bat and metal pipe. Pasco Sheriffs spokesman Doug Tobin said the teens believed the man had stolen their pot plant. The Tampa Bay Times reported the man suffered severe damage to his face, including possible frac-tures. The teens, ages 15 to 17, were charged with aggravated burglary with a deadly weapon and attempted burglary. The Times said police did not find the marijuana plant.Top GOP officials wont back party TALLAHASSEE Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is refusing to back her own party when it comes to whether or not three state Supreme Court justices deserve a new term.

would have very little to fall back on, he said. Logan said small rural counties without alternative resources should receive special consideration in the new funding formula. Some coalitions receive funding from other sources, such as county commissions, but the Gateway coalition depends entirely on the state for money. I think our child care sit uation is more fragile than it is in other counties, Logan said. Many families could not afford to work without out a subsidy for child care, which costs about $90 a week for a toddler, Logan said. A family of four can not make more than $30,000 and must be working to be eligible, he said. At least half of the cen ters that receive state fund ing are in Columbia County, Logan said. With less stu dents able to go to the cen ters, less teachers would be needed. Itll be noticed in Columbia County, he said. Counties near Orlando and Tampa have seen an in need and population, while North Florida and some areas in South Florida are seeing a decline, Logan said. Floridas Office of Early Learning will submit a final formula for allocation to the legislature next spring. Our goal this evening is really to hear from you, said Mel Jurado, director of the state early learning office, while meeting with child care providers at Florida Gateway College. The stakeholder workshop was the third of nine hap pening across the state this month. We are just as important as Miami, Fort Lauderdale or Pensacola, said Janice Summers, owner of A Plus Learning Center and the Busy Bee Playschools, dur ing the meeting. Every day on a waiting list they are falling behind, she said of children waiting to enter the program. Summers said this was the first time the state had offered a meeting with child care providers and she thought it was helpful for voicing her concerns. During the workshop, providers worked in small groups to define equity, dis cuss the fair allocation of state funding and discuss how the state early learn ing office could do better. Gordon Tremaine, CEO of the Early Learning Coalition of Alachua County, said there isnt a fair way to spread child care money throughout the state because there just isnt enough money to pro vide for every child in need. Tremaine said residents cant ask for a tax break and expect social services not to be cut. Every child should get an equal share at a quality education, he said. In a response to the audi tor general report, the state early learning office estimat ed that an additional $907 million would be required to provide for existing unmet needs across the state. John Burn, Gateway coalition chairman, said during the meeting that nothing about the situa tion was equitable. Florida ranks 45th among how much states spend on chil dren, he said. Yall are demanding too much and supplying too lit tle, said Angela Turbeville, owner of Happy Hearts Child Care Centers in Lake City, to Jurado. Rates paid to providers for subsidized child care havent increased in years while reporting and other require ments have increased. My rates dont cover the cost of care, Turbeville said. cash were stolen. The two witnesses went inside to notify Huchingson of the theft, at which time she notified her bank. The bank let Huchingson know that someone had just used her credit card to purchase gas at the S&S Food Store #5 at 704 S. Marion Ave. Huchingson immediately closed her accounts and filed a report with LCPD. During her initial on-scene investiga tion, Officer Connie Hightower went to S&S #5 and found the victims purse in the trash can next to the gas pumps. However, Huchingsons drivers license, Social Security card and two credit cards were missing. Investigator Tammy Cox of the depart ments Criminal Investigation Division learned that the thieves had not only used the card at the S&S but also com mitted several other crimes in surround ing counties and Valdosta, Ga. Craig Strickland, LCPD assistant pub lic information officer, said the timeline is a quick one for the thieves as they stole the purse about 11:20 a.m. and got gas from the S&S station at 11:27. Less than a hour later, at 12:12 p.m., the suspects attempted to use the debit card at an ATM in Live Oak and were declined. In a similar case from Gainesville, Tiffany Pridgens vehicle was burglar ized and her purse and checkbook were stolen on the same day at 10:23 a.m., where her checkbook was stolen. After the attempt to use Huchingsons ATM card failed, the suspects wrote a check from Pridgens stolen checkbook to Huchingson and cashed the check for $1,750 at 12:13 p.m. in Live Oak. The trio then drove to Madison and at 1:07 p.m. wrote another check for $1,850 and got it cashed in Huchingsons name. The crew reportedly turned around and went back to Live Oak where the three suspects went into the Walmart store on U.S. 129 and opened a charge account in Huchingsons name, using her stolen ID. About 4 p.m., the three suspects charged more than $2,000 to the card in electronic merchandise and loaded the goods into the trunk of a black, four-door vehicle. The next day, Aug. 31, the white female suspect went to the Gainesville airport and rented a white, 2013 Chevy Malibu, with license plate number F78-45N from Hertz. The vehicle had not been returned or located and has been entered into a criminal database as stolen by the Gainesville Police Department. Later that day the suspects opened a checking account at a bank in Gainesville in Huchingsons name. The suspects are also accused of using a check belonging to Huchingson to buy merchandise totaling $421 at the Walmart store in Valdosta, Ga. The suspects are described as a heavyset white woman with dark hair and aver age height. The first black male suspect has short hair, a beard and mustache. The second black male suspect appears to be shorter and has a thin mustache. The original vehicle is possibly a black Chrysler 200 sedan with tinted windows. Strickland said Huchingson was tar geted by the thieves. Theyre targeting women frequenting daycares, gyms, church parking lots, where they would normally leave their purses in the vehicle often on the seat or floor board in plain sight, he said. He said local authorities believe the Felony Lane Gang was only operating in Lake City for that one incident. Because of the similarities to other cases reported around the state, it is believed the suspects are part of the Felony Lane Gang. The gang is accused of operating in sev eral parts of Florida, Arkansas, Missouri, South Carolina, Nebraska, Tennessee, Illinois and Wisconsin. Authorities across the state used the label due to the thieves use of a banks outer drive-through lanes to pass fraudu lent checks. Those lanes often dont have good camera coverage and the cashiers cant see into the vehicles well. Members of the group often commit burglaries and steal IDs, checkbooks and credit cards, then write checks on the accounts for thousands of dollars and charge up the cards until they are shut down by the victims bank. Reports said the thieves often travel with a woman and two men and the woman usually wears a wig to suit the identity theft victims hair color and other disguises. As we approach the holiday season and as our city is attracting more and more people, Lake City Police Department is encouraging our citizens to secure their vehicles and ensure valuable items are not left lying in open view in their vehicles, Strickland said. Remember to lock before you leave. This will greatly decrease the crime of opportunity.

The meeting included financial plans for funding the building, an estimated cost of the building, an architects rendering of the site, employment possibilities, poten tial locations and an explanation of where the data was collected. The presentation was devel oped by the fact-finding commit tee, which worked on the project for at least 16 months, after visit ing other event and convention centers out of state and in other parts of Florida. The presentation also noted the project hinged on a partner ship with Columbia County and Columbia County Resources. Dale Williams, county man ager, told the audience that a memorandum of understand ing between Columbia County Resources and the county was in the works, where the land of Columbia County Resources would transfer to the county and then be available for sale and/or development. The Columbia County Resources campus is 82.56 acres. Based on the fair market value established by the county Property Appraisers Office, the land is listed at $4.6 million, or $56,216 per acre. The commit tees presentation indicated that 100 percent of the land sale pro ceeds could be allocated to the Events Center. The top priority the fact-find ing committee emphasized was acquiring a large acreage with interstate frontage. Officials believe interstate frontage is cru cial to a successful center and cre ates a presence and awareness of the facility. A campus setting with multiple buildings would allow for multiple events simultaneous ly. Parking is a major concern, and the plan called for 1,500 to 2,000 parking spaces. The second priority was that the facilities need to be designed for multi-purpose events and not be limited to conferences or con ventions. Priority three event facilities are seldom self-supporting and will require financial assistance. However, most events should be structured to cover their costs. The best management projec tions only provided 75 to 80 per cent return on operating expens es. The most successful facilities used fairs to generate a large portion of their annual revenue. The proposed site would be a minimum of 200 acres with inter state frontage; would have access to public utilities and adequate ingress and egress; and the build ing would be multi-purpose in design and contain approximate ly 250,000 square feet. The project would require a strong governance plan, and the project must be done in coop eration with Columbia County Resources, the owners and oper ators of the Columbia County fairgrounds. The proposal is based on new jobs being created on the fair grounds site, which eventually will be developed into commer cial buildings, hopefully bringing in at least 1,760 jobs with three hotels, five restaurants and two merchandise supercenters. Following the meeting, county commissioners fielded questions and comments. Ed Harris, a Lake City resi dent, voiced his concerns about the county commission poten tially having the last word on the proposal. I think a project of this mag nitude should be voted on by the general public and not passed by a general committee, he said. He also questioned who owned the land that was being consid ered. Officials were also questioned why Ellisville was being consid ered as a potential location for the events center, since it is at least 10 miles away from town. Commissioner Jody DuPree said that land near the U.S. 90 and State Road 47 interchanges was too expensive and noted offi cials were looking at two poten tial sites in Ellisville, one on the east side of the Interstate 75 and the other on the west side. CUTS: Many families in area would need to choose between jobs and care Continued From Page 1A By BILL KACZOR Associated Press TALLAHASSEE A higher education task force appointed by Gov. Rick Scott may recommend tuition increases and vary ing tuition rates based on a students year in school or academic field ideas simi lar to those in a bill recently vetoed by Scott. The panel is scheduled to hold a webinar Friday to discuss those and other sug gestions before finalizing its recommendations to the Republican governor and GOP-controlled Legislature. The working draft of the Blue Ribbon Task Force on State Higher Education notes that Floridas tuition rates remain among the lowest in the nation and includes comparisons with universities in other states. For example, annual tuition is $6,403 at Florida State University and $6,170 at the University of Florida, the states two leading research schools. That compares to $7,694 at the University of North Carolina, $10,037 at Ohio State University and $16,006 at Pennsylvania State University. Tuition at Floridas then-11 active universities increased by 22 percent, or $202.2 million, from 2007-08 through 2009-10, according to the draft. Over that same three-year period, though, state support dropped by 19 percent, or $443.3 mil lion, for a net loss of $241.1 million. If the foregoing condi tions persist, it should be understood by all inter ested parties that Floridas research universities and, to a lesser extent, all of the institutions are vulnerable to (faculty) raids,... State government panel eyes raising college tuition rates
H ow do you get the likes of Sen. Bill Nelson and Rep. Steve Southerland on the same side of an issue? Threaten to touch Floridas share of money from the BP oil spill settlement. After months of political wrangling, Congress in June finally passed the RESTORE Act (which President Obama signed into law in July). It allocates 80 percent of Clean Water Act fines from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill to Florida and the four other Gulf states. The act directs that the fines returned to those states be used for eco-logical and economic recov-ery efforts. Florida law ensures that the Panhandle counties most affected by the spill Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Bay, Gulf, Franklin and Wakulla receive three-fourths of the Sunshine States share of the money. According to the funding formula, that could mean tens of millions of dollars for each county. Recently, reports swirled that the Justice Department was negotiating a deal with BP to settle civil and criminal charges resulting from the oil spill. It would give the federal government more control over the billions of dollars in fines paid by BP, shifting that authority away from the affected states, and it would divert a greater por-tion of those fines toward a Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA), reduc-ing the civil penalties for vio-lating the Clean Water Act. NRDA fines have stricter federal controls on them, whereas CWA fines are sub-ject to the RESTORE Act and are more flexible. The NRDA fines are also tax-deductible. That means BP would be able write off hundreds of millions of dol-lars in penalties, thus easing the financial pain it should feel for operating in such a reckless and destructive manner. Put simply, that deal would be outrageous. Its a slap in the face to every resident of the Gulf Coast and a slap on the wrist to BP. Gulf Coast members of the House and Senate, including Floridas 2nd District Rep. Southerland, R-Panama City, and 1st District Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Chumuckla, recently sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder express-ing in the strongest possible terms their opposition to any settlement agreement that disproportionately applies penalties to NRDA over the CWA. Sen. Nelson, a Democrat, wrote to President Barack Obama: I urge you to hold BP fully accountable for the harm it caused and send the bulk of the fines to the Gulf as directed by the RESTORE Act. Anything less would be an injustice to Gulf Coast com-munities. The Gulf Coast thought it had finally cleaned up this mess. Now here comes Washington muddying the waters. Holder needs to back off and let the RESTORE Act work. DealwoulderodeBP fines OUR OPINION HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY Today is Wednesday, October 10, the 284th day of 2012. There are 82 days left in the year. On this date:In 1938 Nazi Germany completes the annexation of Czechoslovakias Sudetenland. D uring this presiden-tial election year, as Republicans seek to oust President Barack Obama from the White House, Americans are getting a chilling blast from the past. The right to vote, which sets the United States apart from many other nations worldwide, is under attack as it has not been in nearly 50 years. Using the ruse of wanting to assure that everyone who votes is eligible to vote, several state legislatures controlled by Republicans have passed strict voter identification laws requir-ing the show of a photo. This requirement may seem innocu-ous, but its purpose is to sup-press voting among racial and ethnic minorities, especially Hispanics and African-Americans, and other groups who tend to vote Democratic. It is voter suppression redux.Having come of age during the 1960s in the South, I am familiar with the relationship between voting and disenfranchisement. I knew that the right to vote, along with actually casting a ballot, was essential to full citizenship. In 1963, during the height of the voting rights movement, Donald Matthews and James Prothro, professors at the University of North Carolina, wrote a prescient assessment of blacks and the vote in an article for the American Political Science Review: The vote is widely considered the Southern Negros most important weapon in his struggle for full citizenship and social and economic equality. It is argued that political rights pave the way for all others. Once Negroes in the South vote in substantial numbers, white politicians will prove responsive to the desires of the Negro community. Also, federal action on voting will be met with less resistance from the white South -and Southerners in Congress -than action involving schools, jobs, or housing. As a child, I did not know any blacks who voted. We could not vote. I recognized an ugly irony up close: Several of my relatives who had served as Marines and soldiers during World War II and the Korean conflict could not vote after returning to U.S. soil. They were not alone. More than 500,000 blacks fought, and many died, as members of racially seg-regated units during World War II. More than 600,000 served during the Korean conflict. Many died. To keep blacks out of voting booths back then, whites used practices that included poll taxes, proof of residency, physical intimidation and even murder. The most effective tool, though, was the literacy test. In 1964, during my first college summer break, I joined the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and traveled throughout the South with fel-low students as a volunteer for the federally endorsed Voter Education Project. Our job was to help register black voters. We had our clients memorize as much of their state constitutions as they could. We would drive the brave ones downtown where white registrars would ask constitution-related questions. Even many highly educated white citizens could not answer these questions. Of course, whites did not have to take the tests. Even after quot-ing entire sections of the con-stitutions verbatim, most blacks were deemed illiterate and were rejected. In some towns, we were warned to be outside the city limits by sundown. These places were appropriately named sun-down towns. In one Mississippi town, a sign read: NIGGERS! Dont Let the Sun Set on Your Behinds in This Town. Being smart college kids, we were gone long before sunset. My scariest experience came in Alabama, when a sheriffs dep-uty and a mob raided the tables we had set under a magnolia tree on an all-black college campus. The deputy massaged his hol-stered pistol as he cursed and hurled epithets. Every man in the mob carried either a baseball bat or an ax handle. The mob battered our tables and chairs and ripped up our documents. Our leader was clubbed to the ground when he protested. We put him in the bed of our pickup and drove to a black church where we hid until the next morning. Our next stop was Selma.I was a changed young man after returning to college that fall. I had learned that the vote was a right brave people would die for. I learned, too, that tak-ing away the vote is the most effective way to disenfranchise entire groups. Chilling blast from the past LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor:Mr. Romney, heard your foreign policy speech today. You read a speech written by the same War Profiteers that con-trolled the Bush administration. It is what got us into almost bankruptcy in the first place! Im sure you are sending your five sons to enlist into this future army. You want boots on the ground dont you? Please stop the fear promotions! Even with our defense budget cutbacks to stop wasteful spend-ing and WAR FOR PROFIT, the U.S.A. budget is still more than the rest of the world put together! So, what I see as a GOLD STAR DAD is that nothing has changed. You are a war monger for never eding wars for profit! Leave the Middle East people alone. They are having their own revolutions for freedom which President Obama helped spark by giving them a little respect! Thats all they wanted! And knowing he would not invade them for their oil while they did away with tyranny in their countries! Sir, voting for you is like voting for Bush all over again! Stop obstructing jobs for our young people. They are not going to fight the Military Industrial Complex wars anymore! PS: Romney, tell your puppet masters that the American people dont want to police the world anymore! Not when there are 40 million in poverty and 25 million going to bed hungry over night. Your $500,000 bombs mean that Americans suffer, their children die in wars and you just prolong the greening of America with renewable energy! Please stop scaring people into giving up their freedoms and jobs just so you interna-tionalist with no country can profit from never-ending war! We want peace ... now! Fred McGill, Fort White To the Editor:This is in reference to the proposed change in Amendment No. 8 in the upcoming election. The title is Reliugious Freedon That is incorrect. It should say Religious Bondage. As proposed, it binds taxpayers to finance privagte schools, and is unconstitutional. The rewording tries to cover up the real purpose by saying no person may be denied a gov-ernment benefit. That is not the question. The question is: Is this benefit con-stittutional? No. Congress shall make NO laws (good or bad) in respecty to the establishment of religion, or the free exercise thereof. The amendment is about financing privat school by tax-payers. This amendment is designed to make it constitutional in Florida for the voucher sys-tem. Vote no.

Its hard to single out any one individual for special praise, considering the com-munity-wide commitment of so many. But one local pastor in particular merits notice.

erences, the former assis tant coach spoke of being locked up in a jail cell, sub jected to outbursts from fel low inmates, reading inspi rational books and trying to find a purpose in his fate. His voice cracked as he talked about missing his loved ones, including his wife, Dottie, who was in the gallery. Hopefully we can get better as a result of our hardship and suffering, that somehow, some way, something good will come out of this, Sandusky said. He also spoke of instanc es in which he helped chil dren and did good works in the community, adding: Ive forgiven, Ive been for given. Ive comforted oth ers, Ive been comforted. Ive been kissed by dogs, Ive been bit by dogs. Ive conformed, Ive also been different. Ive been me. Ive been loved, Ive been hated. Sandusky was convicted in June of 45 counts, found guilty of raping or fondling boys he had met through the acclaimed youth char ity he founded, The Second Mile. He plans to appeal, arguing among other things that his defense was not given enough time to prepare for trial after his arrest last November. Among the victims who spoke in court Tuesday was a young man who said he was 11 when Sandusky groped him in a shower in 1998. He said Sandusky is in denial and should stop coming up with excuses. Ive been left with deep painful wounds that you caused and had been bur ied in the garden of my heart for many years, he said. Another man said he was 13 in 2001 when Sandusky lured him into a Penn State sauna and 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & STATE WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 10, 2012 6A L a k e C i t y M e d i c a l c o m | ( 3 8 6 ) 7 1 9 9 0 0 0 B e T o u g h E n o u g h t o W e a r P i n k & j o i n C o l u m b i a C o u n t y R e s o u r c e s I n c L a k e C i t y M e d i c a l C e n t e r & A f f i l i a t e s i n L U N C H & L E A R NS p e a k e r : D r M a n i s h J a n iT h u r s d a y O c t o b e r 1 1 | 1 2 n o o nC o l u m b i a C o u n t y F a i r g r o u n d s B a n q u e t H a l l 4 3 8 S W S R 2 4 7 | L a k e C i t y F L 3 2 0 2 5 S t a r t i n g O c t 2 L a k e C i t y M e d i c a l C e n t e r a n d i t s a f f i l i a t e s a r e h o n o r i n g m o r e t h a n 3 0 0 c o u r a g e o u s w o m e n d i a g n o s e d o r t r e a t e d f o r b r e a s t c a n c e r i n o n e o f o u r f a c i l i t i e s i n t h e l a s t t h r e e y e a r s b y d i s p l a y i n g 3 0 0 p i n k f l a m i n g o s f o r t h e m o n t h o f O c t o b e r F o r a $ 1 5 d o n a t i o n y o u c a n h a v e o n e o f t h e s e f l a m i n g o s t o d i s p l a y i n y o u r o w n y a r d s p r e a d i n g b r e a s t c a n c e r a w a r e n e s s t h r o u g h o u t o u r c o m m u n i t y F u n d s r a i s e d s u p p o r t C o l u m b i a C o u n t y R e s o u r c e s T o u g h E n o u g h t o W e a r P i n k C r i s i s F u n d a n d t h e A m e r i c a n C a n c e r S o c i e t y V i s i t t h e L a k e C i t y M e d i c a l C e n t e r l o b b y t o g e t y o u r f l a m i n g o SANDUSKY: Says conviction was a conspiracy Continued From Page 1A By LAURA HAMPSON email@example.com Columbia County School Board members agreed Tuesday night to hold their annual reorganizational meeting Nov. 20 at 6:30 p.m. before the regular meeting at 7 p.m. Members agreed to cancel their Nov. 27 meeting as the two new board members will have state training that day and cannot attend the meeting. In other matters: A parent of a Shining Star Academy of the Arts students asked the board members to consider allow ing the charter school to enroll students up to their senior year in the future. Superintendent Michael Millikin said during the meeting Tuesday night the charter school would have to change its contract with the district, but a formal meeting can be arranged to discuss the process. Michael Friedman of Ring Power Lift Trucks said the company was excited to support the Columbia High School Global Logistics Academy during a brief presentation to the board. Last week Ring Power donated use of a $20,000 forklift for the school year. Friedman said teaching students how to operate forklifts and work in a ware house is important so when they get out of school they can be a valuable assets to the workforce.

School board prepares for transition Education board seeking budget increase of 4.4% By BILL KACZOR Associated Press The State Board of Education voted Tuesday to seek a $643 million, or 4.4 percent, spending increase next year for Floridas public schools and colleges. The board during its meeting in Orlando also approved other legislative requests and a new fiveyear strategic plan that envisions minority stu dents narrowing but not fully closing their achievement gap with white students. The total $15.6 billion spending request for the budget year beginning July 1, 2013, includes $9.88 billion in basic funding for kindergarten through 12th grade. That would be $322 million, or 3.37 percent, more than is cur rently being spent. The increase for community and state colleges would be $100.5 million, or 9.43 percent, for a total of $1.17 billion. The overall 4.4 percent increase equals the states estimated growth in gen eral revenue next year. Lawmakers last year approved a $1 billion increase for public schools, but that wasnt enough to offset prior cuts. Fifteen percent of the new money the board is seeking would be need ed just to keep up with enrollment growth. Other proposed new spending includes $442 million for K-12 technology improve ments, $63.6 million for charter school capital out lay and $64.8 million in matching funds for private donations to the colleges. Board member John Padget questioned why the achievement goals for all children, regardless of racial or ethnic back ground, shouldnt be the same. Board member Roberto Bobby Martinez said that would be a heck of a statement but noted that black and Hispanic chil dren are starting at a dif ferent place. We have to be realis tic, added board member Kathleen Shanahan.

The Indians are 3-2 at the mid-point of the season, with a schedule that is definitely top-loaded. First-half opponents Wakulla High and Union County High are both unde-feated and ranked third and second in their respective classes. Newberry High is 4-2 and Taylor County High is 2-3. Only Hamilton County High, at 0-5, could be considered a pushover. The five teams Fort White has played have a winning percentage of .696 when not counting their performance against the Indians. The difficulty tapers off in the second half. The win-ning percentage for teams down the stretch is .321 and only District 3-3A opponent Trinity Catholic High (3-3) is at .500. For the first half, Fort White is averaging 27 points per game while giving up 18 (134-89). The two top 3 opponents accounted for 65 points. We knew we were playing some teams that were pret-ty good, Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson said. We thought we could take care of Hamilton, but the other games could have gone either way. To prepare ourselves for a playoff run, you need to play teams that will challenge you and that is what we tried to do. It will benefit us in the second half. Fort White leads opponents in overall offensive yardage 1,529-1,195. The Indians have rushed for 683 yards on 158 carries for a 4.3 average. Opponents are 205-965 (4.7), which includes running jugger-nauts Newberry, Wakulla and Union County. Fort White is way ahead in passing yardage, 846-230. The Indians are 54 of 94 (.574) with five inter-ceptions and nine touchdown passes. Opponents are 14 of 51 (.275) with four interceptions. Fort White leads in first downs, 55-52, and has been penalized 39 times for 301 yards to the opponents 59 times for 439 yards.

Lady Tigers bounce back Hard-luck night for Richardson By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comRichardson Middle School football continued its hard-luck run with a 14-6 home loss to Baker County Middle School on Tuesday. Richardson got on the board first with a touch-down at 2:22 of the first quarter. The Wolves stopped the Bobcats on a fourth-down try on the opening drive and took over at the Richardson 45. Kamario Bell ran for 12 yards and a first down at the Baker County 43. On fourth-and-5, Bell took a pitch around the right side. He broke a tackle at the line of scrimmage and ran through two defenders at the 20-yard line to com-plete a 38-yard scoring play. The PAT run came up short. Richardson forced a three-and-out punt, but returned the favor. On the Wolves punt Baker County broke through and blocked it, then picked up the ball and ran 30 yards for the tying points. Later in the second quarter, the Wolves got inter-ceptions from Michael Doughtery negated by a blow-to-the-head penalty and Ronnie Collins to stop the Bobcats. Richardson moved into Baker County territory on an 18-yard run by Bell, but came up short on a fourth-and-1. The Wolves lost a couple of fumbles in the second half and one led to the win-ning touchdown by the Bobcats. Richardson (1-4) has lost each of its four games by one touchdown. The Wolves travel to Fort White for a 6 p.m. game on Oct. 16. Baker County Middle School wins 14-6. By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High picked up where it left off after drop-ping its first district game against St. Augustine on Friday. The Lady Tigers needed four sets but came out on top of the visiting Stanton Prep Lady Devils. Columbia earned a 25-7, 26-24, 20-25, 25-20 win on its home court. Although it was a district match, it didnt count for the Lady Tigers record due to only being allowed to count the first game played against each district oppo-nent. Annie Milton had 11-consecutive service points in the first game to help the Lady Tigers cruise to vic-tory and helped shut down Stanton Prep in the second game. Stanton Prep was leading as late as 19-17 and after Milton earned a kill at 24-24, she closed the game out with two service points. Kelbie Ronsonet led the Lady Tigers in kills with nine in the match and added three blocks. Jara Courson had seven kills and Jessie Bates led the team wtih 22 assists. Hannah Baker had eight assists and Milton finished with five kills, four aces and three blocks in the match. Columbia will host Atlantic Coast High at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday. Although its a district opponent, the game will not count against the district record. Columbia defeats Stanton Prep in district contest.

Donovans son transfers to FloridaAssociated PressGAINESVILLE Florida coach Billy Donovan will have his oldest son on the bench this season and maybe on the floor the fol-lowing year.

The walk-on junior guard must sit out this season under NCAA transfer rules and will be eligible to compete for the Gators next fall. Without Strasburg, Nats turn to Jackson for Game 3By HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressWASHINGTON Stephen Strasburg joined his teammates for an off-day workout at Nationals Park on Tuesday, red socks pulled nearly up to his knees while tossing base-balls in the outfield a day before the first postseason game in the nations capital in 79 years. Thats about the extent of activity these days for Strasburg as the Washington Nationals carry on without their acknowledged ace, shut down a month ago. The NL East champions opponent right now, the St. Louis Cardinals, are very much counting on their returning ace, Chris Carpenter, who has pitched only 17 innings all year. Carpenter will be on the mound Wednesday afternoon for Game 3 of the NL division series, fac-ing Washingtons Edwin Jackson. The best-of-five series is tied at 1. The 37-year-old Carpenter had surgery in July for a nerve problem that left his throwing arm and much of the right side of his body numb. He came back on Sept. 21, and is 0-2 with a 3.71 ERA in three starts. Everybody knows that it wasnt supposed to hap-pen, Carpenter said about the prospect of pitching at all in 2012. I put a lot of work into it, to hopefully have this opportunity. I didnt know if I was going to have this opportunity or not and fortunately, I do. He is 9-2 with a 3.05 ERA in the postseason for his career. That includes going 4-0 with a 3.25 ERA last year while helping St. Louis win the World Series; he beat the Texas Rangers in Game 7 for the title. Him winning the World Series last year or when-ever isnt going to do any-thing for him tomorrow, Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman said. Hes a great pitcher, and nobodys taking anything away from him in that aspect, but tomorrow were going to go out there with our plan and try and do what weve done all year. Which was good enough to own the best record in the major leagues at 98-64. Strasburg played a key role up until his final start, a three-inning outing on Sept. 7. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2009 amateur draft went 15-6 with a 3.16 ERA with 197 strikeouts in 159 1-3 innings. General manager Mike Rizzo made quite clear all season that his prized right-handers innings would be limited in his first full season back from Sept. 3, 2010, reconstructive elbow surgery. I bet the kid has to be going crazy, being in the situation where he is, said Cardinals right fielder Carlos Beltran, who hit two of his teams four homers Monday in Game 2. He pitched all regular season, and right now hes not available for them. Unable to put Strasburg on the mound now, the Nationals used playoff rookies Gio Gonzalez and Jordan Zimmermann in Games 1 and 2. The starting pitching, we showed a little inexperience there, man-ager Davey Johnson said. I mean, not going right after hitters and also not pitching. Washington now needs to rebound from that 12-4 loss in Game 2 at St. Louis, although the Nationals pre-fer to focus on having taken one of their two road games at the outset of the series. Going up against Carpenter will be his for-mer teammate Jackson, the only starting pitcher on Washingtons roster who ever had participated in a playoff game before this season. He was a member of the Cardinals champion-ship club in 2011, and his overall postseason mark is 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA. He went 10-11 this season, but Washingtons record in Jacksons starts was only 12-19. Its high expectations on me. I have high expecta-tions on myself, as well, the right-hander said. This is one of those games where you go out and you try to lead by example. Thats certainly the sort of thing the Cardinals expect from Carpenter, who won the 2005 Cy Young Award and helped St. Louis win a title the fol-lowing year.
The first tee was the safest place in town Friday morning as area sheriffs and their supporters lined up for the annual Youth Ranch benefit tournament. The team of Richard Francis, Robert Kelly, Randy Sommers and Bill Casey claimed the best gross score with a round of 48. In the net score category, Shack Roberson, Sam Roberson and Henry Roberson teamed with Bill Casey to take top honors with a 42.2.

Eddy Brown (+12) overcame strong efforts from Cory DePratter and Michael Yacovelli, both with +10, for first place in the Saturday blitz. Jonathan Allen (+7), Robbie Kerby (+6) and Terry Hunter (+4) trailed the leaders. Hunter, Kerby and DePratter shared a lucra-tive payoff in the skins game. Terry Hunter rolled in four birdies and an eagle en route to a +13 win in the Sunday blitz. Hunter needed all the firepower to overcome a fine round of +10 by Don Howard. Eddy Brown and Steve Thomas tied with + 4 to share third place. One of Hunters birdies and the eagle were good for skins. Shelton Keen also claimed two winners. Dave Mehl and Thomas each had a keeper. Closest to the pin winners were Mehl on No. 15, Thomas on No. 17, Hunter on No. 3 and Keen on No.7. The LGA played it straight this week with a low net tournament. Suzi Davis went subpar with 70 to edge Natalie Bryants 72 for the win. Jan Davis finished third with a round of 78.

The final match ended with Monty Montgomery, Emerson Darst, Bill Rogers and Merle Hibbard on top of the team of Stan Woolbert, Rhea Hart, Tony Branch and Bill Wheeler by a score of 5-4.

Garrett now stands as the only undefeated golfer in the double elimination Match Play Tournament and will await the survivor of the elimination bracket. In the elimination bracket, Joe Herring defeated Todd Carter, and awaits the winner of the Pete Sapienza vs. Chet Carter match for the right to play Garrett in the final. In weekly tournament play, the Wednesday Blitz had Glen Sanders first at +9, with Gerald Smithy and Mike Kahlich tied for sec-ond at +7. Skin winners were Todd Carter with five and Jim Munns. In Fridays Dogfight, Wallace Christie and Randy Heavrin tied for first at +7. Garrett Odom was third at +5. Skin winners were Odom (3), Christie (2), Heavrin, Joe Herring and Tim Tortorice. Closest to the pin contests had Heavrin closest on Ponds No. 5 and Creeks No. 15 In Sunday Scramble action, the team of Brooke Russell, Ryan Minster, and Chet Carter finished at 4 under to take first place.

Despite struggling again in a 23-17 loss to the Houston Texans, Sanchez is still Rex Ryans guy despite many fans and media suggesting a switch to Tim Tebow could help the Jets (2-3) get back on track. Yeah, no question, the Jets coach said Tuesday without hesitation when asked if Sanchez remains the teams starter. Sanchez has completed less than 50 percent of his passes in four straight games, and his 48.4 com-pletion percentage ranks last in the NFL. He also has an unsightly 66.6 quar-terback rating, which is 31st in the league ahead of only Kansas Citys Matt Cassel (66.2) and Cleveland rookie Brandon Weeden (64.5). Ryan wouldnt speculate on whether he might pull Sanchez for Tebow if the starter continues to struggle and the Jets two-game losing streak increases. Im not going to get into the what-ifs and all that, Ryan said. Were not pre-paring to lose, thats for sure. Were thinking were going to win, starting this week. New York is home again Sunday against Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts, who stunned the Green Bay Packers 30-27. Another loss could really ramp up the Tebow Time chatter. Ryan thought Sanchez played pretty good Monday night, espe-cially considering that he was without top receiver Santonio Holmes, out for the season with a foot inju-ry, rookie wide receiver Stephen Hill and tight end Dustin Keller both out with hamstring injuries. The Jets coach cited three dropped passes and four tips as skewing Sanchezs final stats: 14 of 31 for 230 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. I thought he was accurate with the football, Ryan said. But, he also had some poorly timed mishaps. With the Jets trailing 14-7 and driving before halftime, Sanchez had a pass tipped by J.J. Watt that went off Jeremy Kerley to Brice McCain, who ran back the interception 86 yards before Kerley caught him at the New York 9. Houston then kicked a field goal to take a 10-point advantage. Sanchez had a chance to lead the Jets on a poten-tial winning drive with 3 minutes left, but a pass to Jeff Cumberland tipped off the tight ends hands and right to Texans cornerback Kareem Jackson to end the comeback bid.Goodell re-issues bounty suspensionsBy BRETT MARTELAssociated PressNEW ORLEANS NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld the suspen-sions of Jonathan Vilma and Will Smith on Tuesday for their role in the New Orleans Saints bounty scan-dal and reduced penalties for Scott Fujita and Anthony Hargrove. Vilma will sit out the entire season and Smiths punishment stands at four games. Hargrove, a free agent defensive lineman, will face a two-game suspen-sion once he signs with a team. He originally was hit with eight games, but that was reduced to seven with five games already served. Fujita, who plays for Cleveland, will now miss only one game instead of three. The players were implicated in what the NFL said was a bounty pool run by former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and paid improper cash bonuses for hits that injured opponents. The players have acknowledged a pool but denied they intended to injure anyone. Goodells new ruling comes about a month after an appeal panel created by the NFLs labor agreement vacated the original suspen-sions on technical grounds during Week 1 of the reg-ular season and informed Goodell that he needed to clarify the reasons for the punishment. The panel asked Goodell to clarify to extent to which his ruling involved conduct detrimen-tal to the league, which he has the sole authority to handle, and salary cap viola-tions resulting from bonus payments, which would have to be ruled upon by an arbitrator other than the commissioner. Only Smith and Fujita have played this season. Vilma has been recovering from offseason knee sur-gery and hopes to return in two weeks when the Saints play at Tampa Bay.
DEAR ABBY: I am the single dad of two teen-age boys (17 and 18) who are both in high school. I am wondering about something they do with their friends. The boys take showers in large groups. When they come in from running or sports, or if a group is spending the night, they shower in groups of two, three or four. Its not like we have a huge shower -its normal size. I know theres nothing sexual going on because I can hear them talking and joking around. When I asked the boys about this, they looked at me like I had two heads. They said it was just a social thing and the same as showering together after football in the school gym. They also air dry after showers by walking around in towels, some-times watching TV or goof-ing off for hours while in their towels. When going out, they get naked in the bathroom, fixing their hair, shaving, brushing their teeth, etc. Its like a big nude fest with them and their friends. While Im glad they are comfortable with their bodies and who they are, it still bothers me somewhat. Am I being a prude in thinking this is unusual or inappropriate? -STUMPED IN KENTUCKY DEAR STUMPED: I see nothing inappropriate about what your sons and their friends are doing. Nor do I want to label you a prude. You are just not as comfortable in your skin as your sons and their jock friends are. Is it pos-sible that they take after their mother? ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My best friend and I do everything together and I love her, so when she showed up at the gym in booty shorts, I didnt say a word, even though they dont flatter her one bit. Heck, theres a mirror on every wall, so she must have liked what she saw, and its none of my busi-ness. When she wore them to a school sporting event, my husband accused me of being a bad friend for not telling her that her rear view was getting the wrong kind of attention. Some of the other parents in the bleachers were snickering. I guess if the situation were reversed, Id want my best friend to give me a hint, but Im not exactly sure how to do it. Am I wrong to just keep my mouth shut and mind my own business? -ANONYMOUS IN A SMALL TOWN DEAR ANONYMOUS: Allow me to provide a couple of hints. First, tell your friend when you are alone and cant be over-heard, which will spare her unnecessary embarrass-ment. Second, ask, When you bought those shorts, did you get a look at yourself from the back? If she says no, provide her with a mirror so she can look over her shoulder at herself. Then explain that at the school event, some of the other parents were staring, and not too kindly. You will be doing her a favor to speak up. That is what friendship is all about. And if shes smart, shell thank you. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take control; make changes.
