By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comOLUSTEE The sound of 100 rifle shots and cannon fire briefly echoed through the woods at the Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park on Saturday. The shots were not fired on the battlefield, but instead near the Olustee Battlefield Monument. The small-arms and artillery fire was a way of paying homage to Confederate troops who fought in the battle during a monument rededication ceremony at Floridas first state park. On Oct. 23, 1912, 48 years after the Feb. 20, 1864, battle, mem-bers of the United Daughters of the Confederacy unveiled a mon-ument in honor of Confederate troops who fought in the Battle of Olustee, and Saturday, nearly 500 people returned to the site to rededicate the monument. A rededication stone was unveiled and it will be set at the monu-ments base at a later date. The ceremony, held at the base of the 40-foot granite tower, lasted close to two hours and served as an event where Southern heritage, courage and integrity were honored in many cases by direct descen-dants of the battles participants. Units that fought in the battle also were recognized during the ceremony. Dr. Sean McMahon, a Florida Gateway College history profes-sor who served as the events master of ceremonies, said the event went well. There was a lot of passion and hard work that went behind event as well as planning and organization of it and ultimate-ly everything went smoothly, McMahon said.

Skyler dona ted his birthday presents to residents at Avalon Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center on Friday. By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comF or his 13th birthday, Skyler Colley asked for socks, toys, slip-pers and a fuzzy robe. But they werent for himself. Skyler, a seventh-grader at Richardson Middle School, donated his birthday presents to residents at Avalon Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center Friday afternoon. He and his parents also took a box of toys to young patients at Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center. When Skyler invited friends to a party on Sept. 22, he asked them to bring gifts for the young and old patients, instead of presents for a new teenager. I thought, I already have enough stuff, he said. The children at the hospital are suffering and some people in Editors note: In addition to federal, state and local candidates, Florida voters will decide the fate of 11 proposed amendments to the state constitution on Nov. 6.

Bring joy to others By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comCity officials are scheduled to discuss and possibly vote on the fate of the Southside Community Center during Monday nights council meet-ing, where it has been rec-ommended by Wendell Johnson, city manager, that the center be declared sur-plus, closed to children and the building be used to house the citys water, sewer and gas depart-ments. Officials are also slated to discuss alternatives to closing the facility. The meeting will take place 7 p.m. Monday in City Council Chambers at City Hall, 205 N.

TALLAHASSEE F loridas workers compensation insurance rates have climbed from 40th to 29th most expensive in the nation over the last two years. That 11-point increase was reported in a study released this week by the Oregon Department of Consumer & Business Services. It issues a com parison of rates in the 50 states on Jan. 1 of each even-numbered year. The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation noted in a news release Friday that the Sunshine States rate of $1.82 per $100 of payroll is still below the national median of $1.88. Businesses and other employers buy workers compensation insurance to cover on-the-job injuries. Florida Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty said the study shows that the state needs to be proactive in consider ing legislation to keep its rates nationally competi tive. Man found guilty in fatal shooting JACKSONVILLE A Jacksonville man will spend the rest of his life in prison for killing a bystander while trying to shoot the car of a rival drug dealer. A Duval County jury found 24-year-old Taurice Brown guilty Thursday of first-degree murder, which carries an automatic life sentence. Authorities said Brown was trying to shoot Anthony Duane Wiggins, but he missed and hit Analiza Gobaton, a 41-yearold mother of three. According to the Florida Times-Union, Browns attorney argued that Wiggins fired at Brown first, and Brown was defending himself. Stone crab season to open MARATHON Floridas commercial fish ermen are hoping winter visitors will flock to the Sunshine State for stone crab season. Gary Graves is vice president of Keys Fisheries, the largest pro cessor of the crabs tasty claws in the Florida Keys. He said a strong winter tourism season for the state normally translates into higher fiscal yields for the commercial fishing industry. Graves said some 75 percent of all claws har vested by Floridas com mercial fishermen remain in Florida and are mostly consumed by visitors. He adds that consumers should expect slightly higher season-opening prices, due to fuel cost increases for fishermen. He expects retail seafood market prices to be around $10 per pound for medium claws, $16 for large and $21 for jumbos. The stone crab season runs Monday through May 15. Body may be of missing student CEDAR KEY The father of a missing University of Florida stu dent is helping investiga tors determine whether a body found in rural Levy County is that of his son. Gainesville Police say they are assisting the Levy County Sheriffs Office after a body was found Friday in Cedar Key, but no further information has been released. The Miami Herald repored that Carlos Aguilar travelled from Miami to meet with investi gators after being told the body matched the descrip tion of his son, 18-year-old Christian Aguilar. He was last seen in Gainesville with his friend, 18-yearold Pedro Bravo, who has been charged with firstdegree murder. Police said Bravo told them he beat Aguilar unconscious and left him in a parking lot. Aguilars family posted on Facebook that forensics wont confirm any informa tion until Tuesday. 10th meningitis case confirmed TALLAHASSEE Florida now has ten confirmed cases of fungal meningitis. The Florida Department of Health confirmed Saturday that Escambia County has its case of fun gal meningitis associated with contaminated steroid injections from the New England Compounding Center. A-47-year old man who received treatment from Pain Consultants of West Florida in Pensacola was injected with one of the tainted shots. Six facilities in Florida have received and used the contaminated injec tions. Florida Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong said they do not anticipate more patients will be affected as the investigation con tinues. Federal health officials said the number of cases nationwide have sickened at least 184 people, includ ing 14 deaths across 12 states. Red tide lingering off Lee County CAPTIVA Red tide has been found lingering off Captiva and Lee County beaches. The Fort Myers News-Press reported a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation map found red tide in water quality samples, with a dense con centration about six miles off Captiva. According to scientists, the bloom started about a month ago off Sarasota and has been slowly mov ing south. The algae bloom is deadly for fish, marine mammals, sea turtles and other sea life. The toxins also can become airborne and cause breathing problems for people with asthma or other types of respiratory diseases. Police to reopen 4-year-old case BRADENTON Bradenton Beach police have agreed to reopen the 4-year-old investigation into the death of Sheena Morris, which was ruled a suicide in 2009. Police chief Sam Speciale told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune Friday that the department will fol low recommendations of a panel of police experts that was convened by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

The musician will join former President Bill Clinton at a Thursday rally in Parma, Ohio, two days after the second presidential debate. Obama will not attend the rally. Springsteen also will appear at a campaign event Thursday in Ames, Iowa. Springsteen campaigned for Obama in 2008, but these will be his first political appearances of the 2012 cycle. Clinton is a prominent cam paigner for Obama. Clinton and Springsteens joint appearance in Ohio underscores the importance of the key swing state.

Flock of stars honors Whitney Houston LOS ANGELES Jennifer Hudson embodied the look of one of her idols, Whitney Houston, during a tribute to the late singer put on by Grammy organizers. Rocking a pompadour and glit tery jacket reminiscent of Houstons stage costumes from the 1980s, Hudson belted out a medley of Houstons hits Thursday at the Nokia Theatre for We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston, which will air as a TV special next month. She has been a huge part of my life musically, Hudson said. Shes just been like this outline, this blue print for myself. Britney Spears, LL Cool J, Halle Berry, Taraji P. Henson, Usher, CeCe Winans and Yolanda Adams also par ticipated in the musical tribute. Spears said shes always been a huge fan of Houstons. I think shes amazing, Spears said. And I think that her voice is better than God. I just, I love her. Houston died at 48 the night before the Grammy Awards in February from accidental drowning complicated by drug use and heart disease. Elvis Beverly Hills estate up for sale MEMPHIS, Tenn. The former Beverly Hills home of the late Elvis Presley and his wife Priscilla is now on the market for sale for a cool $12.9 million. Real estate website operator Trulia said the home hit the market Wednesday. Like Elvis home in Memphis, known as Graceland, Elvis fans have for years flocked to visit the prop erty. According to the listing, the four bedroom, five bathroom French Regency estate sits on a 1.18-acre promontory overlooking Los Angeles. According to Elvis Presley Enterprises, Presley first rented the house before the couple bought it in 1967. It was sold in 1973, the same year Elvis and Priscilla divorced. The estate formerly was available to lease for $25,000 per month. No neglect charges against Octomom SANTA ANA, Calif.

accept direct payment from a person or an employer for lawful health care ser vices; exempt persons, employers, and health care providers from penal ties and taxes for paying directly or accepting direct payment for lawful health care services; and prohibit laws or rules from abol ishing the private market for health care coverage of any lawful health care service. Specifies that the amendment does not affect which health care services a health care provider is required to perform or pro vide; affect which health care services are permit ted by law; prohibit care provided pursuant to gen eral law relating to work ers compensation; affect laws or rules in effect as of March 1, 2010; affect the terms or conditions of any health care system to the extent that those terms and conditions do not have the effect of punishing a person or an employer for paying directly for lawful health care services or a health care provider for accept ing direct payment from a person or an employer for lawful health care services; or affect any general law passed by two-thirds vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature, passed after the effective date of the amendment, provided such law states with specificity the pub lic necessity justifying the exceptions from the provi sions of the amendment. The amendment expressly provides that it may not be construed to prohibit nego tiated provisions in insur ance contracts, network agreements, or other pro vider agreements contrac tually limiting copayments, coinsurance, deductibles, or other patient charges. PRO: With the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as Obamacare, the federal government overstepped its bounds, say proponents of this measure. Passing this amendment would, in theory, prevent imple mentation of the ACAs individual mandate, which requires that individuals be forced to purchase health insurance. As opponents of this amendment note, this measure was placed on the ballot before the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the ACA constitutional, making it moot under the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution. However, some support ers believe support of this amendment will send a message to washington that Florida viters are unhappy with ACA. Also, should the ACA be repealed or modi fied by Congress, passage of Amendment 1 would stop state lawmakers from enacting a similar program in Florida. CON: With the Supreme Court ruling upholding the ACA, this amendment is legally meaningless, as federal law trumps state law in cases such as these. This proposed amendment therefore amount to little more than political games manship. AMENDMENT 2 VETERANS DISABLED DUE TO COMBAT INJURY; HOMESTEAD PROPERTY TAX DISCOUNT Ballot summary: Proposing an amend ment to Section 6 of Article VII and the creation of Section 32 of Article XII of the State Constitution to expand the availability of the property discount on the homesteads of veter ans who became disabled as the result of a combat injury to include those who were not Florida residents when they entered the military and schedule the amendment to take effect January 1, 2013. PRO: Amendment 2 rectifies an inequity in a 2006 amendment to the state constitution that gave property tax breaks to veterans disabled in combat who are now 65 or older and who lived in Florida when they entered the military. The unfair ness of this is evident. If one wounded veteran who owns a Florida home deserves tax help, they all do, the Tampa Tribune noted in opposing the orig inal amendment. Under Amendment 2, all disabled veterans who call Florida home will now be on the same footing. CON: In advocating pas sage of Amendment 2, the Tribune also noted some of the arguments against the measure: If this amend ment passes, more ques tions will follow. What about the surviving spouse of a combat-injured vet eran? What about injuries that happened just outside of combat? What about dis abled heroes who own a vacation home? Voters tired of the increasing complexity of tax laws and the steady expansion of the constitu tion can justify voting no, even though they honor the sacrifice of wounded veterans. AMENDMENT 3 STATE GOVERNMENT REVENUE LIMITATION Ballot summary: This proposed amendment to the State Constitution replaces the existing state revenue limitation based on Florida personal income growth with a new state revenue limitation based on inflation and population changes. Under the amend ment, state revenues, as defined in the amendment, collected in excess of the revenue limitation must be deposited into the budget stabilization fund until the fund reaches its maximum balance, and thereafter shall be used for the sup port and maintenance of public schools by reduc ing the minimum finan cial effort required from school districts for par ticipation in a state-funded education finance program, or, if the minimum finan cial effort is no longer required, returned to the taxpayers. The Legislature may increase the state rev enue limitation through a bill approved by a super majority vote of each house of the Legislature. The Legislature may also submit a proposed increase in the state revenue limi tation to the voters. The Legislature must imple ment this proposed amend ment by general law. The amendment will take effect upon approval by the elec tors and will first apply to the 2014-2015 state fiscal year. PRO: Government spending has been grow ing too fast for many years, often outstripping the rate of growth in the economys private sector, whose taxes support the government, wrote the James Madison Institute in endorsing this amendment. Proponents of limiting the rate of growth in the cost of state government thought they had found a useful limit years ago: a cap on state spending linked to the rate of growth in Floridians personal income. However, this limitation, which vot ers enacted in 1994, has turned out to be ineffec tive in limiting the rapid growth in state spend ing, which the amend ments supporters note has continued regardless of which political party controlledthe governor ship and the Legislature. Therefore, Amendment 3 proposes a different for mula in which the rate of growth in the state govern ments spending would be capped based on the rate of infl ation and population growth. Proponents argue that this would provide sufficient funding for thes tate government to keep pace with growth and with any increases in the cost of goods and services. CON: The Naples News opined that limiting the money that state govern ment can spend sounds attractive. We all have to live with such limits, right? We ought to make Tallahassee join the club, right? Actually, state government already has revenue limits and is required to have a balanced budget. We cannot see an exist ing problem that rises to the level of a constitutional amendment. We prefer flexibility that allows for worst-case scenarios, such as hurricane repairs, and holding elected officials accountable. AMENDMENT 4 PROPERTY TAX LIMITATIONS; PROPERTY VALUE DECLINE; REDUCTION FOR NONHOMESTEAD ASSESSMENT INCREASES; DELAY OF SCHEDULED REPEAL Ballot summary: (1) This would amend Florida Constitution Article VII, Section 4 (Taxation; assessments) and Section 6 (Homestead exemp tions). It also would amend Article XII, Section 27, and add Sections 32 and 33, relating to the Schedule for the amendments. (2) In certain circumstances, the law requires the assessed value of homestead and specified nonhomestead property to increase when the just value of the prop erty decreases. Therefore, this amendment provides that the Legislature may, by general law, provide that the assessment of homestead and specified nonhomestead property may not increase if the just value of that property is less than the just value of the property on the pre ceding January 1, subject to any adjustment in the assessed value due to changes, additions, reduc tions, or improvements to such property which are assessed as provided for by general law. This amend ment takes effect upon approval by the voters. If approved at a special elec tion held on the date of the 2012 presidential prefer ence primary, it shall oper ate retroactively to January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, shall take effect January 1, 2013. (3) This amendment reduces from 10 percent to 5 percent the limitation on annual changes in assess ments of nonhomestead real property. This amend ment takes effect upon approval of the voters. If approved at a special elec tion held on the date of the 2012 presidential prefer ence primary, it shall oper ate retroactively to January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, takes effect January 1, 2013. (4) This amendment also authorizes general law to provide, subject to condi tions specified in such law, an additional homestead exemption to every person who establishes the right to receive the homestead exemption provided in the Florida Constitution within 1 year after purchasing the homestead property and who has not owned prop erty in the previous 3 cal endar years to which the Florida homestead exemp tion applied. The additional homestead exemption shall apply to all levies except school district levies. The additional exemption is an amount equal to 50 percent of the homestead proper tys just value on January 1 of the year the homestead is established. The addi tional homestead exemp tion may not exceed an amount equal to the median just value of all homestead property within the county where the property at issue is located for the calendar year immediately preced ing January 1 of the year the homestead is established. The additional exemption shall apply for the shorter of 5 years or the year of sale of the property. The amount of the additional exemption shall be reduced in each subsequent year by an amount equal to 20 percent of the amount of the additional exemption received in the year the homestead was established or by an amount equal to the difference between the just value of the property and the assessed value of the property determined under Article VII, Section 4(d), whichever is greater.

S ome 30 years ago Lake City had a very popular eatery named Sambos Restaurant. It was located in front of the Cinema 90, about where the TD (Toronto Dominion) Bank is now located. Sambos was a breakfastanytime restaurant and always had a lot of customers. It was a clean, well-run restaurant and served consistently delicious food. Then one day it abruptly closed. Why? One reason you heard was it was a victim of its own name, Sambos. Some perceived the name to be con-nected with a childhood story called Little Black Sambo, a name some connected to southern racism. The name Sambos was actually taken from portions of the names of the California co-founders, Sam (Sam Battistone) and Bo (Newell BOhnett--capitals mine). Nonetheless, the racist per-ceptions became set in place. The original childrens story was titled The Story of Little Black Sambo, by Helen Bannerman, a Scottish woman living in India and it was published in 1899. It had nothing to do with racism. The storyline involved a young dark skinned boy in India who loved to wear colorful clothing. One day he encountered four tigers that were envious of his colorful clothes so they took them away from him. Then the vain tigers became envious of each other, each tiger wanting all the colorful clothing for himself. So, they started chasing each other around a tree, each one trying to take the next ones colorful clothing. They went round and round so fast and so long that all four turned into butter. Sambo took this special butter home and his mother made pancakes and syrup, using the special butter. Everyone agreed they were the most delicious pancakes they had ever eaten, thanks to that spe-cial butter. Over time the story circulated far beyond India and eventually came to the United States and was a favorite among southern children. To be fair, some racism did creep into the reference and an occasional white person would refer condescendingly to a black male as a Sambo. For whatever the reason, over 1,000 Sambos Restaurants eventually closed nationwide and now the only one left is the original one in Santa Barbara, Calif.What sex?A little boy and a little girl were playing in the forest when they came upon a nudist colony with a huge stockade fence around it. The curious little boy found a hole in the fence and took a peek. The little girl said, What do you see? The boy said, People. The girl said, Are they boys or girls? The boy said, I cant tell. They arent wearing any clothes! Sambos long gone for wrongreason OUR OPINION HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY In 1066, Normans under William the Conqueror defeated the English at the Battle of Hastings. In 1586, Mary, Queen of Scots, went on trial in England, accused of committing trea-son against Queen Elizabeth I. (Mary was beheaded in February 1587.) In 1890, Dwight D. Eisenhower, 34th president of the United States, was born in Denison, Texas. In 1908, the E.M. Forster novel A Room With a View was first published by Edward Arnold of London. In 1939, a German U-boat torpedoed and sank the HMS Royal Oak, a British battle-ship anchored at Scapa Flow in Scotlands Orkney Islands; 833 of the more than 1,200 men aboard were killed. In 1944, German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel com-mitted suicide rather than face execution for allegedly conspir-ing against Adolf Hitler. In 1947, Air Force test pilot Charles E. (Chuck) Yeager broke the sound barrier. W hat a wonderful blessing to be an American; however, with the blessing comes the responsibilities and expectations of our Lord, Jesus Christ. This column is offered as a reality check concerning the present politics in America. Our federal government has become unbelievably cor-rupt. When the White House and Congress congregate, it is like the worlds largest liars convention. Do you recognize this? Is it upsetting you? Well, it should upset you very much. Our government is lying to us at every turn, and counting on us to believe it. Sadly, far too many people do. Our elected officials are using their positions to spread lies and deception to the people they are supposed to be repre-senting. People voted for these individuals because we thought we could trust them. Instead, elected officials are using their positions to spread lies and deception. Sen. Harry Reid [D-Ariz.] repeatedly talks about [Republican presidential can-didate Mitt] Romneys wealth. I thin him being wealthy is a good thing; maybe he can do something about the irrespon-sible quagmire that Washington has drowned us in. Mr. Reid never bothers to tell people that he is one of the wealthiest individuals in Congress. Most of his wealth has been accumu-lated after becoming a member of Congress. I wonder how he did that. Certain members of Congress keep hammering the ideology that this election is primarily a racial issue. This is directed to the uninformed that has absolutely no idea what is going on in this country. This election is about the freedom and prosperity of the American people. Politicians shouls be talking about the issues. What have the incumbents done to help America move forward? What specifically they are planning to do to help restore America to the wealth and power it has demanded and held in the past? Unfortunately, the Democrats cannot run on their present record of the past four years. For example, Sen. Reid has not one time presented a federal budget for action by the Senate during this time. We should not tolerate incompetent, failed lead-ership from our goernment. Instead of President [Baracl] Obama smiling into the TV cameras and peddling his package about prosperity in America when reality tells us differently, we want to know what he plans to do for the 23 million Americans that can-not find full-time employment, and gas prices that are soaring daily. The entire Middle East despises America, and out allies are questioning and rightly so if they an trust us. How about skipping the smiles, Mr. Obama, and tell us exactly how you plan to deal with the rapidly growing list of problems that face America? Many of the prob-lems we are facing are due to your leadership. Our president and members of Congress, in most cases, only care about power and how much of the taxpayers money they can pocket, and wo will pay the highest price for their vote. Why are many members of Congress and people in the White House permitted to get away with not paying their taxes, yet these same individu-als have the audacity to raise our taxes? It is terrifying that we cannot expect any justice from Washington. The news media, in most cases, is nothing more than fiction directed at selling their viewpoint, and has as a prime directive to confuse and control the thinking of each of us. Both our government and the news media are counting on voters to be as stupid and/or misinformed about the truth as they are hop-ing for. Dont be angry with me. Be angry with the people that [are] undermining you. Our free-doms and our rights are being assaulted almost daily. The election in November is, perhaps, the most important election of this century. Each and every one of us owes it to our children, our grandchildren and ourselves to go to th epolls and case a well-informed vote. Follow the voting of the current incumbents. Are they support-ing legislation that is directed at the destruction of our constitu-tional and religious freedoms? In numerous cases the answer is absolutely yes. To vote is our only recourse in determining our nations future. The Congressional Budget Office already has determined that health care beginning in 2013 will be increased by 19 percent as a result of the costly Obamacare that [Sen. Bill] Nelson [D-Fla.] supported. Areyou considering what this is going to do to your wallet? While Sen. Bill Nelson sup-ported the current administra-tion in transferring over $700 bilion away from Medicare, he has the audacity to tell the people of Florida that he and the present administration support Medicare. More of the same old politican lies. I am very disgusted and disappointed with President Obamas treatment of our military. They are treated with no respect and shown no real concern for their safety. He is using every-thing, including the Pentagon, to prevent our troops overseas from being permitted to vote. Anyone that has served in the military or currently has a loved one serving overseas should be mad as all heck. We expect men and women to put their lives in danger, but fight to keep them from participating in the politi-cal process. Shame on you, Mr. President. Am I mad? You better believe I am. Im mad, disappointed and disgusted with politicians that are dumping 230 years of freedom, prosperity and dreams down the toilet. Everyone, please exercise your right to vote in this elec-tion. Consider long and hard the direction our country is moving. Freedom is priceless. Fight to save it.

If you havent yet read todays Page 1A story on Skyler Colley, please take a few moments to do so before proceeding. Skyler, as reporter Laura Hampson informs us, is a 13-year-old seventh-grader at Richardson Middle School. And instead of a new smart phone, he asked for socks, slippers, toys and a fuzzy robe for his birthday last month. Odd choices all.But it was no joke.After convincing his friends he was serious, they obliged him, bringing all sorts of seemingly age-inap-propriate gifts to his Sept. 22 party. Thats just what he wanted: gifts for the very young and the not-so-young. Skyler, who helped care for his grandparents before they passed, wanted to bring some joy to the lives of resi-dents of Avalon Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center. And while he was at it, he would brighten the day of youngsters hospitalized at Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center. So he did just that, taking those presents to the folks at Avalon folks who dont always get a lot of visitors or a lot of presents and to young patients at Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center. What prompted such kindness? It was the right thing to do, he said. And as our story noted, its not as if he already had every gadget and toy in the world and just got bored with them. Thanks, Skyler, not just for the joy you brought to the residents of Avalon and the youngsters at Shands Lake Shore, but for the smiles you brought to all our faces. You didnt restore our faith in the next generation we never lost it but you made our day almost as much as you did all those youngsters and seniors.

exemption shall be allowed per homestead property at one time. The additional exemption applies to prop-erty purchased on or after January 1, 2011, if approved by the voters at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential pref-erence primary, or to prop-erty purchased on or after January 1, 2012, if approved by the voters at the 2012 general election. The addi-tional exemption is not available in the sixth and subsequent years after it is first received. The amend-ment shall take effect upon approval by the voters. If approved at a special elec-tion held on the date of the 2012 presidential prefer-ence primary, it shall oper-ate retroactively to January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, takes effect January 1, 2013. (5) This amendment also delays until 2023, the repeal, currently scheduled to take effect in 2019, of constitutional amendments adopted in 2008 which limit annual assessment increas-es for specified nonhome-stead real property. This amendment delays until 2022 the submission of an amendment proposing the abrogation of such repeal to the voters. Florida Tax Watch explains: Amendment 4 would take effect on January 1, 2013, and proposes: an additional homestead exemption for new homeowners or those who have not owned property for at least three years, equal to 50 percent of the just value of a property up to the median just value of a homestead property in that county, which phases out over five years by reducing 20 percent per year. The exemption does not apply to school levies; a reduction in the annual cap on assessed value increases for nonhome-stead properties from the current ten percent on non-school levies to a new level of five percent and an extension of this cap through the 2022 tax year and; providing legislative authority to eliminate the Save Our Homes Recapture Rule. This rule currently provides that the assess-ment value of homestead property will increase by the Save Our Homes cap (three percent or inflation, whichever is less), even if the just (market) value of the property declines, as long as the assessed value is still less than the just value.PRO: According to Florida Tax Watch, the amendment will likely have a positive economic impact, at least in the short term. A June 2012 Florida TaxWatch report ... found that it would create jobs, grow Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and increase per-sonal income. Using the best available data and an advanced econometric analysis, Florida TaxWatch estimated that the passage of Amendment 4 would result in the creation of 19,483 private, non-farm jobs over the 10-year period of the analysis (2013-2022), that Florida GDP would increase by approximately $1.1 billion, and personal income would increase by more than $5.3 billion. The analysis also estimated that between 319,861 and 383,810 additional home sales would occur over ten years. CON: However, like any new property tax exemp-tion or assessment cap, these changes can have unintended consequences, the Florida Tax Watch anal-ysis continued. Property tax cuts that reduce taxable value tend to shift taxes to other taxpayer populations. This certainly happened under Save Our Homes and the increased homestead exemption passed in 2008, as businesses and other non-homestead property have had billions of dol-lars of tax burden shifted to them. Moreover, to the extent that millage rates are higher than they would have otherwise been, the taxpayers to which the exemption or cap were tar-geted do not receive all of the tax relief they might expect.AMENDMENT 5 STATE COURTS Ballot summary:Proposing a revision of Article V of the State Constitution relating to the judiciary. The State Constitution authorizes the Supreme Court to adopt rules for the practice and procedure in all courts. The constitution further provides that a rule of court may be repealed by a general law enacted by a two-thirds vote of the mem-bership of each house of the Legislature. This pro-posed constitutional revi-sion eliminates the require-ment that a general law repealing a court rule pass by a two-thirds vote of each house, thereby providing that the Legislature may repeal a rule of court by a general law approved by a majority vote of each house of the Legislature that expresses the policy behind the repeal. The court could readopt the rule in conformity with the public policy expressed by the Legislature, but if the Legislature determines that a rule has been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, this proposed revision prohibits the court from further readopting the repealed rule without the Legislatures prior approval. Under current law, rules of the judicial nomi-nating commissions and the Judicial Qualifications Commission may be repealed by general law enacted by a majority vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. Under this proposed revi-sion, a vote to repeal those rules is changed to repeal by general law enacted by a majority vote of the legisla-tors present. Under current law, the Governor appoints a justice of the Supreme Court from a list of nomi-nees provided by a judicial nominating commission, and appointments by the Governor are not subject to confirmation. This revi-sion requires Senate con-firmation of a justice of the Supreme Court before the appointee can take office. If the Senate votes not to con-firm the appointment, the judicial nominating com-mission must reconvene and may not renominate any person whose prior appointment to fill the same vacancy was not confirmed by the Senate. For the pur-pose of confirmation, the Senate may meet at any time. If the Senate fails to vote on the appointment of a justice within 90 days, the justice will be deemed con-firmed and will take office. The Judicial Qualifications Commission is an indepen-dent commission created by the State Constitution to investigate and pros-ecute before the Florida Supreme Court alleged misconduct by a justice or judge. Currently under the constitution, commission proceedings are confiden-tial until formal charges are filed by the investigative panel of the commission. Once formal charges are filed, the formal charges and all further proceedings of the commission are pub-lic. Currently, the constitu-tion authorizes the House of Representatives to impeach a justice or judge. Further, the Speaker of the House of Representatives may request, and the Judicial Qualifications Commission must make available, all information in the com-missions possession for use in deciding whether to impeach a justice or judge. This proposed revision requires the commission to make all of its files available to the Speaker of the House of Representatives but pro-vides that such files would remain confidential during any investigation by the House of Representatives and until such information is used in the pursuit of an impeachment of a justice or judge. This revision also removes the power of the Governor to request files of the Judicial Qualifications Commission to conform to a prior constitutional change. This revision also makes technical and clarify-ing additions and deletions relating to the selection of chief judges of a circuit and relating to the Judicial Qualifications Commission, and makes other nonsub-stantive conforming and technical changes in the judicial article of the con-stitution. Florida Tax Watch explains: Amendment 5 would make a number of chang-es designed to increase the Legislative Branchs authority and oversight of the Judicial Branch. It would: Require Senate confirmation of a justice of the Supreme Court before the appointee can take office. Currently, the Governor appoints justices from a list of nominees pro-vided by a judicial nominat-ing commission, and these appointments are not sub-ject to confirmation. Make it easier for the legislature to repeal a court rule by eliminating the current super majority vote requirement, thereby requiring only a simple majority vote of each cham-ber. It would also limit the re-adoption of repealed court rules. Make it easier for the legislature to repeal a rule of the Judicial Nominating Commissions and the Judicial Qualifications Commission by requiring a majority vote of the legisla-tors present instead of the current requirement of a majority vote of the mem-bership of each chamber. Give the Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives expanded access to confidential files involving judges accused of misconduct. This amendment would take power from both the judicial branch and the governor and increase the power of the legislature. PRO: Proponents say this provides another check and balance for court deci-sions and should make the court more efficient. CON: Opponents say this is a move to politicize the courts or even to penal-ize them for decisions that have been unpopular with legislators.AMENDMENT 6 PROHIBITION ON PUBLIC FUNDING OF ABORTIONS; CONSTRUCTION OF ABORTION RIGHTS Ballot summary:This proposed amendment provides that public funds may not be expend-ed for any abortion or for health-benefits coverage that includes coverage of abortion. This prohibi-tion does not apply to an expenditure required by federal law, a case in which a woman suffers from a physical disorder, physical injury, or physical illness that would place her in dan-ger of death unless an abor-tion is performed, or a case of rape or incest. This pro-posed amendment provides that the State Constitution may not be interpreted to create broader rights to an abortion than those con-tained in the United States Constitution. With respect to abortion, this proposed amendment overrules court decisions which con-clude that the right of priva-cy under Article I, Section 23 of the State Constitution is broader in scope than that of the United States Constitution. Florida Tax Watch explains: Amendment 6 would prohibit the spending of public funds for any abor-tion or for health benefits coverage that includes abortion. The prohibition does not apply to: expen-ditures required by federal law; when a woman suffers from a physical disorder, physical injury or illness, caused by or arising from the pregnancy itself, which would place the woman in danger of death unless an abortion is performed; or an abortion due to a preg-nancy resulting from rape or incest. Federal and state law already prohibit spending for abortions unless theyre needed to save the life of the woman or to end preg-nancies caused by rape or incest, but this amendment would protect that prohibi-tion in the Constitution. The amendment also provides that the State Constitution may not be interpreted to create broad-er rights to an abortion than those contained in the United States Constitution. The effect of this provision is that, if passed, the amend-ment would supersede court decisions which have concluded that the right of privacy under Article I, Section 23, of the Florida Constitution is broader in scope than that of the U.S. Constitution. The Florida Supreme Court has ruled that the right of privacy con-tained in Article I, Section 23 of the Florida Constitution confers broader abortion rights than the United States Constitution. The Court also ruled that all abortion regulations are presumptively unconstitu-tional and subject to strict scrutiny. If Amendment 6 is adopted, abortion regu-lations would no longer be presumptively unconstitu-tional or subject to strict scrutiny. This means that legislation such as a paren-tal consent law, which has been ruled unconstitutional in Florida, would likely no longer be unconstitutional. It should be mentioned that while the amendment provides that abortion rights in Florida cannot be broader than under the U.S. Constitution, it does not preclude courts from interpreting Florida to have narrower abortion rights. PRO: Proponents say that the amendment puts Floridas abortion rights at the same level as federal law. CON: Opponents say it opens the door for more restrictive abortion rights. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER NEWS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2012 Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-04286A 7731 W.

Sequeta & Kids VOTERS: Will decide the fate of 11 proposed constitutional amendments Continued From 3A subsequently considered during the regu-lar council meeting on Aug. 6. Council tabled the issue and reconsidered again during a council workshop on Oct. 1, where city council members reached a consensus and decided the item should be placed on an agenda for consid-eration during Mondays meeting. According to reports from city officials, the only structured Southside Community Center recreation service for children is the Summer Camp Program. Otherwise, the center is open throughout the school year and a large number of children remain at the center after school until picked up by their parents or guardians, the report said. This activity appears only as a daycare service. The children, during the school year, leave Summers Elementary School and go sign in at Southside Community Center and wait for their parents, Johnson said in a meeting earlier in the month. Weve determined thats not a safe environment. Theres been nothing happen thus far, but its where they really are not adequately supervised. It just creates a concern on my part and thats one of the reasons it was brought up to begin with. The children sign in, they go and play outside and then they leave. I feel its not effective or effi-cient nor the best use for that facility. The citys cost to operate and maintain the facility is approximately $190,000 annually. The citys fiscal year 2013 budget contains funding for almost $200,000 for utility department upgrades at the Gum Swamp Road compound. At the compound, a number of antiquated structures are cur-rently being used for utility department purposes. Johnson suggested that a plausible use for the Southside Center is to house the City Utilitys Department. An alternative to closing the Southside Community Center to after-school use proposal suggests modifying services as a structured after school recreation pro-gram, which complies with regulatory standards of the Department of Children and Family Services. The additional costs to make that a reality has been estimated at $75,000 and the money could come from the citys general and enterprise funds.

nursing homes dont get many visitors, he said. Used to a party being all about the birthday boy, Skyler said his friends kind of wondered why I did it. Skyler said he helped take care of his grandpar ents before they passed away, a loss that is still tender. At Avalon, patients smiled and thanked Skyler, surprised with a gift out of the blue. Friends Eduardo Florez, 8, and Camille Florez, 13, came along to help pass out the presents. Its an awesome thing, said Monich Culbreath, Avalon activities director. Volunteers with presents come to the nursing home around Christmas time, but not during the rest of the year, she said. Several people at the nursing home dont have family, she said, so the five-minute visit just means the world to them. You dont know if its the last time theyll have someone visit, she said. I liked to see their happy faces, Skyler said. It makes me feel really good. Chris Colley, Skylers father, said he is proud of his sons kind, thoughtful project. Youd be surprised at how many people dont have anybody, said Skylers mother, Helen Colley. The project isnt because Skyler has more toys and gadgets than he knows what to do with, she said. I always tell him he inspires me, she said.

Kelly Barrow, nation al Sons of Confederate Veterans lieutenant com mander-in-chief, was the events keynote speaker. During his address, he spoke about having two ancestors who participated in the Battle of Olustee, including Lt. Col. James Barrow, who died in the battle. His address included several quotes and com ments collected from his toric sources from when the monument was first dedicated 100 years earlier. One such comment was quoted from G.H. Dorman, who fought at the Battle of Olustee but returned to the site years later when the monument was unveiled. Heres where the heroes of our land fell as victims fighting for mother, sister and home sweet home, Barrow said, quoting Dorman. Following the ceremony, Barrow continued to show his enthusiasm and excite ment about the event. Its an awesome thing to be the keynote speaker, he said. I never thought that I would be here. The more I started to do research, the more I just felt that this is just an incredible moment. Words cant describe it. Here I am on the battle field where my ancestor died and Im dedicating a monument thats 100 years old, and I cant think of a greater honor. I hope I did the men and my ancestors justice here. He said he would hope another ceremony is held 100 years from now by his descendants. Its important to remem ber our heritage, Barrow said. Its important to remember our heritage and be worthy of it. Our heritage is what makes us. Everybody needs to know their heritage and be a part of it so they can pass it on to their kids. If you dont remember your heritage, then you become a ship without a rudder and anchor youre just adrift. Nancy Markham Miller, a member of the Martha Reid Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, performed in two dances during the monument rededication ceremony. Miller had an ancestor who was a casualty of the war, Henry Mann, who fought with the Appling Grays from Georgia. She said she was proud to represent her fam ily in the ceremony. To stand on this ground where he actually fought and gave that sacrifice is profoundly important, and its humbling to be able to honor him in that way, she said. Miller said the event brought together people who already shared a com mon bond. We all have a common heritage, she said. We all love the south. We all love this ground; we all love our ancestors and we all love preserving the history. Larry Rosenblatt, 16th Brigade commander of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and a member of the Capt. Winston Stephens SCV camp in Baker County, helped organize the event. I think the event turned out to be fantastic, he said. It was a lot longer than I wanted it to be, but there wasnt a thing said or done that shouldnt have been included.

By TERESA M. WALKERAssociated PressNASHVILLE, Tenn. The fourth-ranked Florida Gators remain perfect thanks to quarter-back Jeff Driskel running the ball better than even Tim Tebow. Driskel ran for 177 yards and three touch-downs, and the Gators beat Vanderbilt 31-17 on Saturday night to remain undefeated going into their big showdown with No. 3 South Carolina. The quarterback threw for only 77 yards and ran only 11 times. But the sophomore set the Florida record for yards rushing by a quarterback, topping Tebows 166 yards against Mississippi in 2007 on 27 carries. The Gators (6-0, 5-0 SEC) finished off their last SEC road trip out-side of the state of Florida with their 22nd straight win over Vanderbilt. The Gators scored 21 straight points. The Gators also had three sacks, forced a turnover, blocked a field goal and used a fake punt to put away Vanderbilt. By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comTALLAHASSEE If Florida State was still thinking about last week, it certainly didnt show as the 12th-ranked Seminoles rebounded from their first loss of the year with a 51-7 win against Boston College. You could sense it, Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher said. They had a chip on their shoulder. EJ Manuel led the charge early and often as the senior threw for a career high 439 yards and four touchdowns on 27-of-34 passing. Manuel hit nine different receivers, and threw two interceptions. Manuels first touchdown pass came on a 99-yard drive after the Seminoles held Boston College on the one-inch line. Manuel hit Kenny Shaw for 77 yards for the score. Shaw finished with 125 yards receiving on only two receptions. Lonnie Pryor put the Seminoles up 14-0 with a short touchdown run from the 2-yard line to round out the first-quarter scoring. The Seminoles would add two more touchdowns before Boston College Lake City Reporter SPORTS Sunday, October 14, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?ContactTim KirbySports Editor754email@example.com 1BSPORTS BRIEFS FSU continued on 6B Driskel runs for 177 yards, three TDs in victory.

Pesky DevilsBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comWILLISTON Fort White Highs football team stared down a potential upset with 20 points in the second half to beat Williston High, 23-14, at Booster Stadium in Williston on Friday. Tavaris Williams led the comeback with 207 yards rushing and two touch-downs. Williams ran for 152 yards and both touchdowns in the second half While both teams were coming off bye weeks, it was Fort White that looked slow in the first half as the Indians fell behind 14-3. Fort Whites only points came on a 23-yard field goal by Nathan Escalante with 4:05 left in the half. It is hard to put it on the layoff because we had such a good week of prac-tice, Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson said. One guy, and it was different people, would make a mistake and slow us down. Williston (2-4) received the kickoff and scored in three plays. Stephen Cochlin took a pitch for 41 yards and quarterback David Heinkle threw to Damien Strange for 33 yards and a touchdown. Strange tacked on a Fort White comes back for 23-14 win at Williston.

District tournament week for CHS golf teamsBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comColumbia Highs golf teams play in District 2-2A tournaments this week and one is here at home. The Lady Tigers are host to the district field at Quail Heights Country Club on Monday. Teams will tee off with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. The top three teams advance to region play, and the top three individuals not on one of those teams also advance. District 2-2A includes Chiles, Leon and Lincoln high schools from Tallahassee, Buchholz High and Gainesville High from Gainesville and Mosley High from Lynn Haven. Buchholz is the defending champion for the girls and CHS head coach Todd Carter said the Bobcats are a shoo-in this year. Carter expects Chiles to be sec-ond, adding it is real close between Columbia and Leon for third. The district being at Quail Heights can really come into play with our girls, Carter said. We pos-sibly could take out Chiles, but third place will move us on to regionals. Gillian Norris and Brooke Russell, both sophomores, played in the district tour-nament at Haile Plantation last year. Norris leads the Lady Tigers this year with a 41 average. Gillian has really put in the time and effort, Carter said. She shouldnt have a problem advancing as an individual. Russells average is 46 for the CHS 1-2 punch. Brooke really has the game, Carter said. I am ready for her to get in some low scores. Sophomore Abby Blizzard (56 average) is in her first year and Madison Stalvey (59 average) came on late when two players quit the team. Abby is a beginning golfer and excelling well, Carter said. Madison has only been playing a couple of weeks and needs to stick with it. I am proud of the girls. We need to keep it going. Carter expressed thanks to Quail Heights and The Country Club at Lake City for allowing the golf teams to host matches. Columbias boys will play at Panama Country Club on Tuesday. Tee times begin at 9 a.m. CDT. The Tigers go in sporting a gaudy 17-5-1 record. Columbia stumbled to a fifth-place finish last year at Killearn Country Club. Last year, the top 3 were Chiles-Leon-Buchholz. Columbia tied with Buchholz in the Alachua County Tournament on Thursday, and has split with Chiles this season. We have been in this district five years and Chiles and Leon have accounted for all the district titles, CHS head coach Steve Smithy said. They are both really good and really deep. We have pretty much been in every match we played this year. The CHS contingent is Nick Jones (39.8 average), Dean Soucinek (40.8), Tim Bagley (40.8) Dillan VanVleck (41.4) and Luke Soucinek (41.4). All except Luke Soucinek competed in the district tournament last year. Nick and Dean played in a regional tournament there two years ago, Smithy said. It is a Donald Ross design, right on the bay. It is a good chance for our players. We have a practice round Monday. We will do our homework and get a game plan.

A bad snap on the PAT led to an incompletion and a 14-9 Williston lead. We told then at halftime we worked harder at prac tice than they did in the first half, receivers coach Isiah Phillips said. You have got to play with emotion. Williston, which had gained 194 yards in the first half, answered with three first downs before the Indians defense forced a punt and David Heinkle kicked it out of bounds at the Fort White 8. Williams started hitting his stride with a 22-yard run on first down. Baker threw to Phillips for 18 yards and a first down at the Indians 44. On the next play, Williams broke a draw for 56 yards and a touchdown and Fort White went ahead for good. Escalante kicked the PAT for a 16-14 Fort White lead at 11:33 of the fourth quarter. I was worried in the sec ond half when I looked at that clock, Jackson said. If they get a good drive and eat up the clock and we make a mistake, we could be in trouble. Our guys came through and made plays when they needed to. Fort Whites defense continued to take control and forced a punt to the Indians 20. After a holding call, Baker hit Shayne Newman twice for 19 yards and a first down. A pass interference pen alty put the ball near mid field and Williams reeled off 44 yards on four carries. The final 12 yards went for a touchdown and Escalantes PAT produced the final score with 5:46 to play. Devontae Levy ended Willistons final chance with an interception in the end zone, and the Indians ran out the clock. It was great for us, Jackson said. We had some adversity and that will benefit you in the long run. Fort White (4-2) hosts Fernandina Beach High for homecoming at 7:30 p.m. this Friday. The Pirates lost to Mantanzas High, 35-25.

Williams made up for lost time with 21 carries for 207 yards and two touchdowns. It was the first 200-plus yard game for a Fort White run ning back since the 2010 season. I was really mad I didnt start the game, said Williams, who admitted to missing two days of practice during the last two weeks that included an open date. The entire team was slow getting started, but regrouped at halftime. Everybody was out of it, even me, and that was odd, Williams said. I knew we could come back. We just came out sluggish. We should have beat them worse than we did. Williams saved 152 yards and touchdowns of 56 and 12 yards for after intermission. While Fort Whites defense was doing its part to keep Williston off the board in the second half, the offense rolled up 265 yards 194 on the ground. We did one of those Florida numbers, Jackson said We controlled the line of scrimmage in the second half. Williams wasnt the only one who benefited. Quarterback Andrew Baker was 4-of-10 passing for 50 yards in the first half with one interception. After inter mission he was 5 of 6 for 71 yards and a touchdown. Bakers pick came on the final drive in the second quarter. The quarterback gave Jackson a lets-getthem pat on the back at halftime. That interception was on me, Jackson said. We were trying to run some two-minute stuff and we sig naled the same thing to two receivers. Andrew just told me at halftime he was feel ing good and it was going to be all right. Fort White took the lead for good on Williams 56yard touchdown run on the second play of the fourth quarter. It was a 32 draw for ward, Williams said. It wasnt clear; I had to make some moves. Much of the second half was clear, courtesy of the offensive line. Our last two games were rough up front, line coach Danny Marsee said. They have taken a beat ing in practice and I think they were glad to see a game. We knew coming in we would have to win the game up front. Tavaris ran the ball hard. If it wasnt there, he made something out of it. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Fort White Highs Tavaris Williams tries to break free of a defensive player from Williston High in the Indians 23-14 win. JV wraps up season By TIM KIRBY email@example.com FORT WHITE Fort White Highs junior varsity football team ended its season this week. The Indians were sched uled to play Santa Fe High Wednesday of homecom ing week, but the Raiders canceled. Fort White was winless in five games, but gener ated some excitement at Dixie County High on Thursday before losing 36-29. It was the first game where we scored, coach Wayne Exum Sr. said. We had to go out on a high note and that was it. Quarterback Elijah Bryant threw three touchdown passes. Isaiah Simpson was the recipient of the passes and also ran for a touchdown. Bryant connected with J.T. Byrne and Sampson for two-point conversions, and Byrne kicked a PAT. It looked like more of the same for Fort White. The Indians connected on a long pass on their first play to the Bears 14, but could not score. Dixie County answered with a touchdown drive. On Fort Whites next possession, a wide-open receiver dropped the potential touchdown pass. The Bears again came back with a touchdown for a 14-0 lead. Fort White scored a touchdown late in the sec ond quarter. The Bears had a 65-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Fort White matched it to cut the lead to 22-14. Dixie Countys final score came on an interception return. With five minutes left in the game, Fort Whites Cody Smith recovered a fumble and returned it to the Bears 8. Bryant hit Sampson on a fade route for a touchdown. The Indians added a TD late. We went to the shotgun and threw the ball a lot, JV head coach Charles Moore said. We dont have stats, but Elijah threw for close to 300 yards. We had our chances. We had three possible touchdown passes dropped. Fort White began with 16 junior varsity players. We had some young kids and not too many of them, Moore said. The kids improved week to week and thats what junior varsity is about.
Associated PressWest Virginia came into Saturdays game at Texas Tech in the drivers seat for the Big 12 title, undefeated and eyeing a shot at the BCS champsionship and with quarterback Geno Smith acclaimed as a Heisman Trophy front-runner. The No. 5 Mountaineers left with none of it following a 49-14 loss to the Red Raiders that was the most lopsided Texas Tech victory over a team ranked in the top five. Texas Techs defense consistently stymied West Virginias offense. Heisman Trophy hopeful Smith completed 29 of 55 passes for 275 yards, well off his season averages of nearly 400 yards and and 81 percent completion rate. The Red Raiders offense had no trouble moving the ball as quarterback Seth Doege threw TD passes of 39, 19, 16, 2, 29 and 7 yards. He completed 32 of 42 passes and the six touchdowns matched his career-high. Darrin Moore caught three touchdown passes. Earlier, Oklahoma clobbered Texas 63-21 to get a leg up in the Big 12 race.No. 1 Alabama 42, Missouri 10ST. LOUIS Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon gave top-ranked Alabama a pair of 100-yard rush-ers in the same game for the first time this season and the duo com-bined for five scores in a soggy, weather-delayed game. The defending national champion Crimson Tide (6-0, 3-0 SEC) led 21-0 late in the first quarter en route to their 10th straight vic-tory, all by 19 or more points.No. 6 Kansas State 27, Iowa State 21AMES, Iowa Quarterback Collin Klein ran for 105 yards and three touchdowns to help K-State hold off the Cyclones and beat them for the fifth straight time. Klein also threw for 187 yards for the Wildcats (6-0, 3-0 Big 12), who remain unbeaten heading into next weeks showdown with West Virginia. Kansas State held the Cyclones (4-2, 1-2) to just 231 yards of offense. Iowa State still had a chance for the game-winning drive from its own 3-yard line with 2:17 left, but the Wildcats stopped the Cyclones on downs. Jared Barnett threw for 166 yards and two TDs for Iowa State.No. 7 Notre Dame 20, No. 17 Stanford 13, OTSOUTH BEND, Ind. TJ Jones made a reaching 7-yard touchdown catch in overtime and No. 7 Notre Dame stopped Stanford inches from the goal line. After Jones and Tommy Rees gave the Fighting Irish (6-0) a seven-point lead in OT, Stanford (4-2) drove to a first-and-goal at the 4. Stepfan Taylor ran for 1 on first, 2 on second and inches on third down. That left one play from inside the 1 and the Notre Dame defense, led by Carlos Calabrese, stood up Taylor and pushed him back. Taylor kept reaching and turning, and ended up reaching the ball across the goal line, but the officials ruled it was too late.No. 10 Oregon State 42, BYU 24PROVO, Utah Cody Vaz passed for 332 yards and three touchdowns in his first start since high school. Vaz was filling in for Sean Mannion, who is out indefinitely with a left knee injury. Oregon State is 5-0 for the first time since 1939. Markus Wheaton caught two first-quarter TD passes, and scored on a 12-yard reverse in the fourth, while cornerback Jordan Poyer returned an interception 49 yards to seal the victory against BYU (4-3). Vaz started 5 of 5 for 75 yards and finished 20 of 32 against BYUs fifth-rated defense. BYU quarterback Riley Nelson completed 28 of 51 passes for 305 yards and a touchdown, but was intercepted three times. Brandin Cooks caught eight passes for 173 yards for the Beavers.No. 13 Oklahoma 63, No. 15 Texas 21DALLAS Damien Williams broke off a 95-yard touchdown run for the longest rush in Red River Rivalry history, Blake Bell powered his way in for four TDs and Oklahoma got its second straight blowout of Texas. Landry Jones threw for 321 yards and two touchdowns, and fullback Trey Millard had a career-best 119 yards receiving as the Sooners (4-1, 2-1 Big 12) added another rout to Bob Stoops impressive rivalry resume. Stoops is now 9-5 against Mack Brown and responsible for three of Oklahomas five most lopsided wins over Texas. The Longhorns (3-2, 1-2) couldnt get a stop and never got their offense going.No. 20 Rutgers 23, Syracuse 15PISCATAWAY, N.J. Duron Harmon scooped up a blocked field goal attempt and ran 75 yard for a tie-breaking touchdown early in the third quarter and Rutgers rode its defense and spe-cial teams to 6-0. Big East Conference defensive player of the year Khaseem Greene forced three fumbles and intercepted a pass as Rutgers (3-0) became bowl eligible for the seventh time in eight seasons. Jawan Jamison scored on a 1-yard touchdown run, Gary Nova threw a 12-yard touch-down to Tyler Kroft and walk-on placekicker Nick Borgese had a 25-yard field goal filling in for the injured Kyle Federico as the Scarlet Knights went 6-0 for only the third time since 1976.No. 18 Lousiville 45, Pittsburgh 35PITTSBURGH Senorise Perry rushed for 101 yards and a career-high four touchdowns. Teddy Bridgewater passed for 304 yards for the Cardinals (6-0, 1-0 Big East), including a 75-yard score to Devante Parker on the first play of the second half as Louisville continued its best start since 2006. Parkers score came in the middle of a 24-point burst by Louisville spanning the second and third quarters that turned a seven-point deficit into a 38-21 lead. Tino Sunseri passed for 287 yards and two touchdowns but Pitt (2-4, 0-3) couldnt complete a late rally.No. 24 Boise St. 20, Fresno St. 10BOISE, Idaho D.J. Harper rushed for 122 yards and a touch-down and Joe Southwick threw for another score. Harper was the leader of a Boise State (5-1, 2-0 Mountain West) rushing attack that chewed up 215 yards on the ground and propelled the Broncos to their fifth consecutive win and seventh straight over the Bulldogs. The Broncos held Fresno State (4-3, 2-1) scoreless in the first half.No. 25 Michigan 45, Illinois 0ANN ARBOR, Mich. Denard Robinson threw two touchdown passes and ran for two scores. The Wolverines (4-2, 2-0 Big Ten) got a scare when Robinson left the game late in the first quar-ter. He missed just one-plus pos-sessions, though, and returned to score on a 6-yard run to put Michigan up 17-0 late in the half. Robinson, who wouldnt elaborate on the injury after the game, ran for a 49-yard score giv-ing him 10,000-plus career yards of offense on the Wolverines first drive of the second half and tossed an 8-yard TD pass to Devin Funchess on their next posses-sion to make it 31-0. The Fighting Illini (2-5, 0-3) lost their starting quarterback, Nathan Scheelhaase, because of an injury in the second quarter. 6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2012 Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 6BSPORTS FSU: Hopkins sets scoring record Continued From Page 1B CHS: Looking sharp at 5-1 on year Continued From Page 1BBrian Allen said. I thought that the offense line and run game has been up to par. I set goals, even when I inter-viewed, of what I wanted to see accomplished. A year ago it was 2,000 yards rush-ing. This year, we set the bar even highers. At this point we are at 1,500 yards rush-ing in six games. We want to be at 3,000 when its over. Allen noted that it helped to have three backs of the Tigers caliber. Theyve got it done and done it well as a group, Allen said. You dont have enough footballs to get to them all all night. Theyve done a good job of being selfless. Thats a big part of having a successful group. No matter if theres a ton of receivers or backs, them not being selfish and going out with the team-first mindset and saying when I get my opportunity Ill take care of it, and well win makes things much better. Allen said its not just the running backs that are doing their job. Those stats steadily accumulated, he said. The backs have got the bulk of the credit, but you have to look at the guys in front of them. Starting with Laremy Tunsil, Milla Chastain, John Holmes, Deonte Crumitie and John Sweat. Then Shaq Johnson, theyve continued to get better each week and understanding the game. With all the different defen-sive schemes, you have to be a step up on the game to identify fronts and go out and execute. Although the passing game isnt quite where the Tigers want it to be at this point, it has been effective when its needed. Jayce Barber has six touchdowns this season and only one interception on 706 passing yards. But it all feeds from the run. We have to establish the run to open up the passing game, Allen said. We just have to be able to connect. When an opportunity to catch the ball comes, weve got to catch it. But its not just about how well the offense has been playing. Defensively, the Tigers are only giving up 13.5 points per game. Take away a couple of explosive plays and were playing pretty good foot-ball, Allen said. We have to eliminate teams getting explosive plays. Its allowed teams to be in games. Youre never going to play a flawless game, but at six games you dont want to be perfect either. You want to be eliminating bad plays. Allen said it all starts with his linebacking crew. Theres been some outstanding efforts from new kids like Terry Calloway, Allen said. Hes had 57 tackles, a pass breakup and an interception. Hes play-ing extremely well at times. Hes made some minor mis-takes for explosive plays. Felix Woods is sitting at 43 tackles, two forced fumbles and a breakup. Hes playing very good and has an opportunity to be at the 100 mark at the end of the year. Soloman Bell is right there at 30 tackles. The secondary has broke in new starters throughout, but they havent played young. It begins with junior Trey Marshall. Trey Marshall has 30 tackles and thats missing two games, Allen said. Roger Cray has 10 pass breakups, a pick and a fum-ble. Hes played beyond his years as a freshman. The sky is the limit if he contin-ues to work hard. The Tigers had to replace Dequan Ivery on the defen-sive line, but Allen said it hasnt been a drop off at the position. Brett Newcomb has been a pleasant surprise in the middle getting doubleteamed every snap, Allen said. Theres techniques he can use to get away from it and hes had a ton of suc-cess leading the team in tackles for losses with four. Hes going out and playing very good for us at this point. Those guys are get-ting it done. But even at 5-1, Allen knows this team must continue to get better in order to win a state championship. We can find something even on touchdowns or interceptions that some-one didnt do well, Allen said. We want to get those things corrected. Thats part of the bye week fix-ing those things. Mountaineers topped ASSOCIATED PRESSWest Virginia quarterback Geno Smith throws under press ure from Texas Techs Kerry Hyder during the game in Lubbock, Texas, on Saturday. finally got on the board late in the second quar-ter when Chase Rettig hit Bobby Swigert for an 18-yard score. Before the Eagles hit the scoreboard, James Wilder Jr. caught a seven-yard touchdown pass and Kelvin Benjamin scored from the 6-yard line. Both came on passes from Manuel. Dustin Hopkins kicked a 51-yard field goal to round out the quarter and became the ACCs all-time scoring leader and finished the game with 402 points all-time. Hopkins had 15 points in the contest with three field goals and six extra points. Pryor added his second touchdown of the evening on a three-yard score in the third quarter and Hopkins connected on a second field goal to put the Seminoles up 41-7. With the game already out of hand, Manuel fin-ished his night off with his fourth touchdown pass to start the fourth quarter. This time he hit Wilder Jr., who scored his second touchdown on the 12-yard play. Hopkins third field goal of the night rounded out the scoring at 51-7 with 6:53 remaining in the fourth quarter. And while Florida State piled up the scoring late, it wasnt about proving that the Seminoles are still one of the nations top teams. Fisher already knows that. Im not interested in trying to send a message, Fisher said. Im interested in trying to win a football game. LSU knocks off South CarolinaAssociated PressBATON ROUGE, La. LSU freshman Jeremy Hill highlighted a breakout 124-yard, two-touchdown performance with a 50-yard scoring run, and the ninth-ranked Tigers handed No. 3 South Carolina its first loss of the season, 23-21 on Saturday night. LSU (6-1, 2-1 SEC) substantially outgained South Carolina (6-1, 4-1) 406 yards to 211, but struggled to find the end zone. Three times, LSU settled for field goals after driving at least as far as the Gamecocks 5-yard line, and another drive to the South Carolina 15 stalled on a missed field goal. But Hills long score with 5:03 left gave LSU a nine-point lead that proved too much to overcome. Connor Shaw drove South Carolina for a late TD on a pass to Bruce Ellington with 1:41 left.Arkansas 49, Kentucky 7FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. Tyler Wilson and Arkansas took out a sea-sons worth of frustration against Kentucky. Wilson was 23 of 31 passing for 372 yards and a career-high five touch-downs to lead Arkansas to a 49-7 win over the Wildcats in a game shortened by severe weather. Wilson threw a 74-yard touchdown pass to running back Jonathan Williams on the opening play for the Razorbacks, who had 533 yards of total offense before the game was called in the third quarter because of lightning.
By LAURA HAMPSON firstname.lastname@example.org The Suwannee River Water Management District has created a new water resources division, charged with gathering and evaluating data to monitor the health of area waters. Dr. Erich Marzolf was hired this month to lead a staff of 18 as the new water resources director. Marzolf said the division will evalu ate the biology and chem istry of area springs, lakes and rivers. You could have enough water, but it may be poor qual ity, he said. Marzolf, of Gainesville, will oversee water resource evaluations including water quality; monitoring and data acquisition; and data management and analysis operations. The employees were previously spread among different departments, he said. The district has put a lot of effort into studying minimum flows and levels for potentially impaired waters, Marzolf said. Another set of impair ment evaluations is look ing at water chemistry and biology to evaluate water quality, he said. Thats something we hope to do more of, Marzolf said. Evaluating the water supply is the first process in improving water quality. Thats step one, to evalu ate and identify some sort of impairment, he said. Marzolf has nearly 30 years of experience in the field of environmen tal sciences. He previously served at the St. Johns River Water Management District, working in vari ous environmental scien tist and supervisory posi tions since 1994. During that time, he focused on hydrologic and nutrient restoration for lakes, rivers, springs, and wetlands. Im excited to come to the Suwannee district and continue that work with a different set of springs, he said. A key accomplishment at the St. Johns district was his management of a 760-acre treatment wetland designed to remove phos phorus from Lake Apopka, according to a Suwannee district press release. Marzolf obtained his M.S. and Ph.D. in aquatic ecology from the University of California Davis. He earned his B.A. in biol ogy from the Colorado College. The Suwannee district has long been a place for my familys fishing, pad dling, and recreation. I look forward to working with the staff to preserve, protect, and improve the districts special aquatic resources, Marzolf said. The district welcomes Erich Marzolf to our team, said District Executive Director Ann Shortelle. With Erichs leadership, experience, and dedication to North Floridas water resources, I know he will be a valuable asset in our efforts to protect our springs, rivers, and lakes, she said. 1CBIZ FRONT ON BUSINESS Jerry Osteryoung (850) 644-3372 email@example.com Remember, people will judge you by your actions, not your intentions.

problems because there are more pressing issues requiring their immediate attention. Other times, they are just unsure how to fix it, and it is easier to simply ignore it. What these entrepreneurs are forgetting, however, is that problems do not remain static when ignored. Rather, they esca-late over time, and in the end, that unresolved prob-lem can cost them dearly. Most often, I see entrepreneurs neglecting issues that involve problem employees. The reason is obvious. Having to disci-pline an employee or worst-case scenario, let them go is unpleasant and painful. To avoid having to deal with these unpleas-ant situations, managers frequently pretend not to see the problems. But not only does this affect the morale of the entire office but it also undermines the managers authority. The rest of the staff eventually will lose respect for the leader because failing to take action against bad behavior is tantamount to accepting it. I was working with a restaurant that had been in operation for a reason-able length of time but was still not making adequate profits. The owner was not losing money, but he was barely making enough to keep his head above water. A rough rule of thumb in the restaurant industry is that food costs should be about 32 percent or less of total revenue. Though the owner had been to enough seminars and schools to know how to manage a restaurant, his food costs were hovering above that mark, around 38 percent. When I con-fronted him about this, he simply said that he did not know how to fix this issue as he felt his prices were already pretty high. He was acting as though the problem would either go away or resolve itself if he just did nothing about it. Of course, that did not happen, and now his economic well-being was being threatened. He also did not realize that by tak-ing no action, he was mak-ing a deliberate choice and not just passively delaying the decision. After talking with him, I came to see that he was just unsure of how to fix the problem and lacked confidence in his instincts. When I began tossing out some suggestions, he shared that many were things he had already thought of. He just needed validation from me that these were the right calls. However, until we talked, he was unwilling to act. When you are faced with a problem that you do not know how to address, you must first identify the underlying cause. Second, you need to come up with at least three possible solu-tions. And finally, you must pick the solution you feel is best for your business. Ignoring the problem just allows it to grow. Now go out and see if you have been delaying decisions on problems you need to be addressing. Just remember to gather all the relevant facts before mak-ing any critical decisions. 2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 14, 2012 2CBIZ/MOTLEY NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT TO KEEP YOUR FUTURE ON TRACK.

DEAR ABBY: Several salespersons recently have ended our transaction by saying, Have a blessed day. The last two times it happened, I stopped and asked, What do you mean by that? Both of them stammered and didnt know what to say. One said, Im sort of religious. I replied that Im atheist. I dont think these folks realize what theyre saying. The next time it happens, I plan to respond by asking Zeus to bestow blessings upon them as well. Why do people feel they have a right to force their religious beliefs on customers? -ANNOYED ATHEIST IN TEXAS DEAR ANNOYED ATHEIST: I seriously doubt they are trying to proselytize. The expres-sion may be regional. Or the person may feel that blessed is synonymous with good, happy or safe. If you wish to invoke the blessings of Zeus upon them, feel free to do so. But dont be sur-prised if you have a heck of a time getting waited on the next time you visit the establishment. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I have been in a relationship with Ward for two years. I love him and everything is great except for one thing. He refuses to compromise when it comes to his fam-ily functions. Hes very close to his extended family, and every time theres an event like a recent graduation party for a cousin, he never wants to leave. We were there for 10 hours, and I spent more than half of it either alone or talking to someone I didnt know well because Ward had ditched me. I have spoken to him about this, but hes unwill-ing to compromise. He says his family knows him as the social guy and expects him to stay late and be the life of the party. We have had big fights over this. Im not sure what to do. This has caused a rift in our relationship. -FAMILY-FUNCTIONED OUT IN MINNESOTA DEAR FAMILYFUNCTIONED OUT: When the next family function rolls around, go in separate cars. That way you can leave when you get tired, and Ward can stay as long as he wants. No harm, no foul, no fights. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I married my high school sweetheart at the age of 24. Five years later we divorced. My cur-rent husband, Gil, had a similar short first mar-riage. Although Gil and I have chosen not to divulge any information to our two children about our previ-ous marriages, my sister thinks we should tell them everything because they may find out later in life and be disappointed they didnt hear it from us. Your advice is badly needed. -LIVES IN THE PRESENT DEAR LIVES IN THE PRESENT: I see no rea-son to make a grand announcement to your children, but with the rate at which marriages fail in this country, I also see no reason to keep this a deep, dark secret. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Dont get emotional, get moving. Enjoy what life has to offer. Interact with new people and unfamiliar places. Embrace whatever interests you passionately, and plan to expand your future personally, profes-sionally and financially. Instigate and make change happen. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A disciplined approach may be difficult and some-what depressing, but it will bring results. Traveling, visiting friends, socializ-ing and concentrating on love and self-improvement should be your intent. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dont become anxious if things dont go your way. Get out and interact with people trying to do something worthwhile. Protecting the environ-ment or indulging in a spir-itual quest will help you see your personal situation differently. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Get involved in some-thing you find creative and stress relieving. You will do better than you antici-pate if you get involved in a challenge that requires your mental and physical agility. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A problem with someone who depends on you can be expected. A change of scenery will do you good. Get involved in a physical challenge that will take your mind off your worries and help build your confi-dence. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Vocalize your opinion and set your game plan in motion. Taking action will pay off and help you move in a direction that will assist you in achieving your personal goals. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Discuss plans for the future. You will find out what the pitfalls might be from those who have a critical and practical view of your situation. Dont get angry when you should be using any information you receive to avoid making a mistake. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You have what it takes to be great. Stop procrasti-nating and start to believe in your ability. Expand your creative interests and take control of your per-sonal situation. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Brag and you will be offered an opportunity to show off. A partner-ship will be enhanced by the changes you make at home. Dont take on too much or take a risk that has the potential to result in injury or physical mis-hap. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Have a well-for-mulated plan in mind and speak concisely about your intentions. You will get the support you need. Love is in the stars. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Dont allow anyone to mislead you or put you in an awkward position. Use your intuition in order to avoid making a poor financial choice. Plans to improve your sur-roundings or environment should be geared toward your comfort and well-being. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Use your creative imagination to come up with a plan that ensures you get more for less. A moneymaking endeavor can pay off if you dont overspend initially. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Downer, for short6 Big break12 Something to seek in court 19 ___ pork (Asian dish) 20 Did ordinary writing21 Renowned22 Namibia neighbor23 Old AMC car that came fully loaded? 25 Belgian river to the North Sea 0LQQHVRWD)DWVV SOD\HULQ7KH+XVWOHU 28 Writer Ernie29 Before, in brief30 Good locale for adoptions? 32 Play to ___33 Mysterious figure34 Windy City trains35 Berlin article36 Scrape37 Highlanders7ULP$PPRWKDWVVWLOORQ the store shelf? 43 ___ Khan (villain in 7KH-XQJOH%RRN 45 Getting on the board 46 Root word?47 Pitchers48 Nuts'LUHFWRU-HDQBBB Godard 50 Orch. section53 Some bleating?55 Little victory celebration 57 Dying words, in Shakespeare 3XWBBBRQLW59 It may be drawn at night 60 For fear that61 Salsa ingredient63 Excitement over some presidentialselections? 67 Gumshoe68 Gold units: Abbr.0DQ\EDQGHG displays? 70 Have a loan from6KDOORZBBB-DFN Black film) +HPDQVQLFNQDPH73 Bind tightly74 Avoid a scalping?78 Sackcloth material*UHDVHVLQJHU80 1998 Sarah McLachlan hit 81 Alone, as a female on stage 82 A/C meas.85 Fort ___, Ontario86 Feds 87 ID for a certain band member? 91 Go out for a while?92 Show, quickly-XPSRQWKHLFHBBB&KLOG (Margaret Atwoodpoem) 95 Earth, in ,QGHSHQGHQFH'D\" 98 ___ hours100 Kind of exercise,QIDQWVVKRH102 One rummaging7DNHDIUHVKORRN at %DE\2QH 0RUH7LPHVLQJHU 105 Lock Down 1 Lump in the throat2 Dancer Ginger3 Of ___ (somewhat)4 People wear masks in this: Abbr. 5 Sticking point?6 Field7 Kick the bucket8 Basketball shooting game 9 Playground retort10 Caught11 Summer hrs. in Denver 12 Challenging13 Sufficient 5XQQHUVXQLW*RRG:KHHOEX\ IRU:+(5(67+(BEEF 16 Refined17 Authorize18 Salon worker7KLUGRIWKUHH choices 24 Going (for)3HQQ\BBB31 Last ride?32 Actor Claude of /RER 33 Alma mater of presidents #41, 42and 43 36 Moundsman Dave37 Deep ravine38 Get excited39 Shrew40 College in New Rochelle, N.Y. %DUEHUVMRE42 Accepted as true43 Wrap up44 Rushed45 1992 Liv Ullmann film 47 Be constructive?48 Hangs out49 Some Millers50 Strainers7HOOLHV52 Like wide belts, fashionwise 54 Rat55 Brand name on a waistband 7RRNRIIDVDELUG 59 Bathroom fixture62 Striped safari sight63 Brutus abettor64 Move up, as an eyebrow &KULVWLDQRI7KH 'DUN.QLJKW5LVHV 66 Providing of questions foranswers on-HRSDUG\HJ 69 Vladimir of Russia71 Fit72 Comprising73 Use a futuristic mode of transit 74 Golf round result75 Frozen food brand,OOXVWUDWRUV shortcut *RRGSODFHWR Across BBBP\WKXPE81 Lights up82 Some herbs83 Remnants84 Something to milk for all its worth? 86 Be admitted+HDGBBB88 Rodeo rope 89 Bad feeling in the SLWRIRQHVstomach? 90 ___ latte92 Actress Mazar93 Sports car option96 Eastern drama7KLQJVXVHGGXULQJ crunch time? 99 Christmas purchase No. 1007 5(/($6('$7( SPACE INVASION By Zoe Wheeler / Edited by Will Shor tz For any three answers,FDOOIURPDWRXFKWRQHSKRQH$1.49 each minute; or,ZLWKDFUHGLWFDUG 123456789101112131415161718 19 20 21 22 2324 252627 2829 3031 3233 3435 3637 3839404142 434445 46 4748 49505152 5354 5556 5758 5960 616263646566676869 70 7172 73 74757677 78 7980 81828384 858687888990919293 94 959697 9899 100 101 102 103 104 105 Blessings from salesclerks rub customer wrong way BARACKTHEGAPACEPOS ADESTEHOMAGELACTOSE CRUISECONTROLERRATICKIPLAMESREARBUMPER PAPMSGBAGITEIRE ANEMOENOTESDEMAREST YODUDEIBAREDEL DEVGIZMOSNINER HEADLIGHTLEOSSALAD ENTTOTSELENATEVYE AUTOMATICTRANSMISSION TRIBETEHEESCOORNS HERODASIACRANKCASE DELISADWAREINA CUBAELEECARPET INSPIRITBIDENSCLIPS NAPEGAYERECKLIE TURNSIGNALEDGARIST ASININEHOODORNAMENTS CENSORSONAGERGOOGLE TAGNETOGRESSSENSES Answers to last Sundays Crossword.
