Authorities arrested a 15-year-old and a 17year-old in connection with the crime. Both juveniles were booked into the Columbia County Detention Center Wednesday on charges of burglary and dealing in stolen property. Their names were not released. According to Columbia County Sheriffs reports, a concerned citizen noticed a suspi-cious vehicle and person at their neighbors home and notified the Sheriffs Office.

Campus USA credit union is a full-service Flu haspeaked,but stillpacks apunch By MIKE STOBBEAssociated PressFlu is now widespread in all but three states as the nation grapples with an earlier-than-normal season. But there was one bit of good news Friday: The number of hard-hit areas declined. The flu season in the U.S. got under way a month early, in December, driven by a strain that tends to make people sicker. That led to worries that it might be a bad season, following one of the mildest flu seasons in recent memory. Meally Jenkins, of Lake City, spent loads of time at the Lake City Mall while organizing for the Christmas Dream Machine. She said she caught the flu on Dec. 3. I went home and slept 17 hours. I was sick, sick, sick, she said. Best thing for you to do is get plenty of liquids and rest. The latest numbers, however, hint that the flu season may already have peaked in some spots, like in the South. Still, officials there and in other places are bracing for more sickness. Administrators at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, are fearful that a bug that hit employees will spread to students when they return to campus next week. Everybodys been sick. Its miserable, said school Fewer cases here lately, says local health dept. head. FLU continued on 6A Jenkins Karnes Land

Scott gets taste of food company work MIAMI Gov. Rick Scott has gotten a taste of work at Goya Foods. Scott loaded trucks, filled in on quality control and warehouse jobs and stocked shelves at a super market with Goyas Latino food products on Friday in Miami. It was yet another of Scotts Lets Get to Work Days. They are patterned after similar everyday jobs that became a trade mark of former Gov. and ex-U.S. Sen. Bob Graham. Scott uses his work days to promote Florida indus tries and keep in touch with his constituents. He also took advantage of the Goya job to boost his proposal for exempting purchases of manufactur ing equipment from the states sales tax. That would cost the state $115 million a year, but Scott says it would encourage businesses to expand and create new jobs. State records compromised TALLAHASSEE State officials say the theft of a mobile device at a Florida Department of Juvenile Justice office has com promised thousands of records that include per sonal information.

Agriculture officials said Friday that Florida will produce an estimated 142 million boxes of citrus dur ing the 2012-2013 growing season. Agricultural officials say forecasting is an imperfect science and this years rainfall and disease made predicting the crop espe cially tricky. The majority of the decrease in the estimate is coming from Valencia oranges which decreased 3 million boxes to 76 mil lion boxes. Early-to-midseason oranges decreased 1 mil lion boxes to 66 million boxes. Each box of oranges weighs about 90 pounds.

LOS ANGELES B ritney Spears capped a week of changes Friday with a judge accepting the resignation of her former fiance from the conservatorship that oversees many of her personal and financial matters. Jason Trawick submitted his resignation and it was accepted by Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz on Friday afternoon, when the singer announced her engagement had ended, only hours after she con firmed she was leaving the Fox com petition show The X Factor. Spears and Trawick got engaged in December 2011 and he was added as her co-conservator in April. Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement, Spears said in the statement. Ill always adore him and we will remain great friends. Spears publicist Jeff Raymond said the breakup was a difficult deci sion made by two mature adults. I love and cherish her and her boys, and we will be close forever, Trawick said in a joint statement that was first reported by People maga zine. Spears has been under a courtsupervised conservatorship since February 2008, with her father and another co-conservator, Andrew Wallet, having control over numer ous aspects of her personal life.

Hackers sentenced for Jackson music theft LONDON A pair of U.K. hack ers has been sentenced to 100 hours of community service for the theft of unreleased Michael Jackson tracks from Sony Music Entertainment. Officials say that music aficio nados James Marks and James McCormick used their home com puters to break into Sonys U.S. servers and scour them for Jacksonrelated material. Britains Serious and Organized Crime Agency says the pair down loaded nearly 8,000 files, including completed or partial tracks, artwork, and videos. The 27-year-old Marks and 26year-old McCormick were arrested in May 2011 after Sony alerted U.K. law enforcement to the breach.

They were handed suspended sentences and ordered to do com munity service at central Englands Leicester Crown Court on Friday.

Life-saving effortsCOURTESYOn Thursday, two Columbia Columbia County Sheriffs dep uties were honored for their actions in providing life-s aving care. Deputies D.J. Clay (left) and Scott Staley were presented the Medal of Distinction by Sheriff Mark Hunter in a ceremo ny attended by family, friends and coworkers. The awards citati on read: For rendering life-saving techniques during a suicide attempt. Without their quick intervention the victim could hav e died from their injuries. Their actions are in keeping with the finest traditions of law enforcement and reflect great credit upon themselves and the Columbia County Sheriffs Offic e. Staley and Clay encountered the victim with a self-inflicted lace ration and bleeding profusely, sheriffs officials said They acted immediately to render first aid to the victim until emergen cy medical units could arrive. The victim would have su ffered greater injury or death had they had not intervened so quickly, officials said. From staff reportsThe Governing Board of the Suwannee River Water Management District on Jan. 8 approved an agree-ment with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to expand the partnership-based Mobile Irrigation Lab Services. The MIL is part of the ongoing efforts between the Suwannee River Partnership and the agricultural com-munity to assist farmers in irrigation efficiencies. The MIL provides free water conservation evaluations to the farmer. The MIL in the District is being expanded to address the enhanced water conserva-tion and water quality improvement efforts in the Suwannee River and Santa Fe River basins. The MIL services provide site-specific expertise in analyzing irrigation systems and educating property owners on how to improve water conservation and are free to the farmer. In 2012, the MIL conducted 171 site-specific evaluations covering more than 16,000 acres that identified a potential water savings of over 900 million gallons within the District. The expanded partnership-based agreement will provide for about 20 additional pre-evaluations and post-evaluations at a funding level of $40,000. This increase effort will save an estimated 179 million gallons of water annually or just under 0.5 million gallons per day.Water district expands irrigation lab services From staff reportsThe construction on US 41 in White Springs is expected to switch gears Monday from sidewalk and drainage work to paving as part of the 16-mile resurfacing project in Hamilton County from US 129 to the Columbia County line. Work began in October with one crew replacing sec-tions of side-walk, curb and ditch pavement in town, while a second crew removed and replaced the top layer of asphalt from just north of White Springs to US 129 south of Jasper. Paving begins Monday in White Springs near the entrance of the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park and con-tinues south to the Columbia County line at the Suwannee River Bridge. Crews will then turn around and pave the northbound lane. Motorists can continue to expect day-time lane closures Monday through Friday after 8:30 a.m. and possibly some weekend construction. Anderson Columbia Company, Inc. of Lake City is doing the work for FDOT at a cost of $4.4 million. The work is expected to be completed by early March, depend-ing on weather conditions and other unex-pected circumstances.

4AEDIT OPINION Sunday, January 13, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A D r. Fritz Fountain, a 1955 Columbia High School graduate, a first-class scholar and a veteran of nearly 50 years in the pastoral ministry, wrote a fine fiction book in 2009, Gradually Forgetting Righteousness. It is about a town where evil got control. Here is Dr. Fountains description of his book: It is a story of a rural southern county where a corrupt sheriff is arrested and sent to prison. The appointed sheriff, who is a believer in Christ, attempts to create a respect for the law among a population where for generations evil has been like an heirloom, handed down from parents to children; where most of the people are on the take or want to be, and superficial Christianity is a hobby that is practiced widely but not well. The book was published by Crossroads, 1663 Liberty Drive, Bloomington, IN 47403, www.crossbooks. com. The book costs $20 and you can buy one by call-ing Dr. Fountain at (386) 754-3770. By the way, Dr. Fountain knew from an early age that he would go into the ministry. His picture in his high school yearbook honoring him as Most Likely To Succeed, shows him holding a Bible. He was our countys first elementary school counselor (at Melrose Elementary) and is cur-rently a licensed family therapist, living in Lake City.Blanche questionOur city engineer, Henry Shelton, is also a historian. He is working on a local historical paper and wants to know the last year the Blanche Hotel was a hotel. In other words, what year did the Blanche cease operations as a hotel? If you know even an approximate date, call me at 386-755-8183 and I will tell Henry.Lakes followupLast weeks column was about Lake Citys lakes, and I got two light-hearted calls about two of the lakes. A man called about Lake Hamburg, prede-cessor name to Lake Montgomery. I had said it was named after a local family named Hamburg. Not true, he says, tongue in cheek. In fact he said the name was actually Lake Hamburger. Local sewage was dumped into the lake, he said, and some of the material bonded and looked like cow patties (to put it del-icately,) which resembled hamburger patties, thus Hamburger Lake. Im sure the Hamburg family will be glad to get that information The other caller wonder ed how I could write about Gwen Lake without mentioning Skeeter Hill, a lovers lane on the north side of the lake some 60 years ago where, the call-er said, she did her first serious kissing. It turned out that lots of people remember Skeeter Hill!Lake City 1901A few things going on in our town in 1901: City government was trying to keep cows from running in the city streets; a paupers list was published weekly in the paper listing the names and amounts received by people on welfare; a person was arrested for the serious crime of using profanity at the train sta-tion; the city used inmates from the jail to remove the hyacinths from Lake DeSoto; and the Columbia County Light Infantry was called to Jacksonville to preserve martial law dur-ing the great fire of 1901.Taxi rideA man tells this story: Two days before Christmas, I was out for an evening with friends and had too much to drink so I took a cab home. Sure enough, on the way home, there was a police roadblock, but since it was a cab, they waved it past. I arrived home safely without inci-dent. All this was a real surprise to me because I had never driven a cab before! I dont even remember where I got it, and now that its in my garage, I dont know what to do with it. All reasonable offers will be considered.

Q Associated Press HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY On this date:In 1733, James Oglethorpe and some 120 English colonists arrived at Charleston, S.C., while en route to settle in present-day Georgia. In 1794, President George Washington approved a measure adding two stars and two stripes to the American flag, following the admission of Vermont and Kentucky to the Union. (The number of stripes was later reduced to the original 13.) In 1864, composer Stephen Foster died in a New York hospital at age 37. (In his pocket: a note that read, Dear friends and gentle hearts.) In 1898, Emile Zolas famous defense of Capt. Alfred Dreyfus, Jaccuse, was published in Paris. In 1945, during World War II, Soviet forces began a huge, successful offensive against the Germans in Eastern Europe. In 1962, comedian Ernie Kovacs died in a car crash in west Los Angeles 10 days before his 43rd birthday. In 1966, Robert C. Weaver was named Secretary of Housing and Urban Development by President Lyndon B. Johnson; Weaver became the first black Cabinet member. In 1978, former Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey died in Waverly, Minn., at age 66. In 1982, an Air Florida 737 crashed into Washington, D.C.s 14th Street Bridge and fell into the Potomac River after taking off during a snowstorm, killing a total of 78 people; four passengers and a flight atten-dant survived. Lessons from the past for Democrats T he start of the new year, and also of President Barack Obamas second term, is a good time to pause for perspective on the sources of the current politi-cal constellation in our country. To help understand the recent national electoral success of Obama and the Democratic Party, study Al Smith. Who?Alfred E. Smith was governor of New York State and the Democratic Partys presidential nominee in 1928. He was also the first Roman Catholic candidate to be chosen for national office by a major party. He was buried in the enormous Republican election landslide that carried Herbert Hoover to the White House, and reinforced that partys strong grip on majorities in both houses of Congress. Hoover at the time was the most popular political figure in America. He was a gifted engineer and highly effective executive who got things done. Vast programs of humanitar-ian relief for Europe in the wake of World War I, and for the Mississippi River valley in the wake of devastat-ing floods in 1927, were overseen by this leader, who was also above reproach in personal ethics. However, in 1928 Smith won the twelve biggest cities beginning with New York and ending with Los Angeles with an overall plural-ity, reversing previous Republican dominance in these areas. Samuel Lubell, a brilliant journalist as well as scholar, insightfully describes the phenomenon in his book The Future of American Politics, pub-lished in 1952. Not surprisingly in that different time, a quarter-century before the modern South began developing, all of the largest cities were in Northern states. Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Miami and other centers of Southern national political as well as economic influence had not yet emerged. In the North, newly arriving immigrants from Europe had suffered severely from intense ingrained ethnic bigotry. The Irish in particular experienced devastating discrimina-tion by dominant groups. Immigrants found relief through Democratic Party local organiza-tions, using resulting practical leverage to gain desperately needed employment in the fire and police departments, and other city services. Those jobs could be tedious as well as dangerous but brought regular pay, and usually involved some security. After World War II, the big cities were challenged and then overcome by the rapidly expanding suburbs. Earlier rural-urban divisions faded. In 1960, suburbs for the first time had a plurality of the electorate. By 1992, the suburbs held a majority. Successful Democratic presidential nominees John F. Kennedy and Bill Clinton demonstrated strong appeal in the suburbs. In the 1950s, popular commentaries often casually referred to the suburbs as Republican, but that was not actually true. They were more Eisenhower suburbs the incred-ibly popular Republican Dwight Eisenhower carried them as he did the rest of the country. Suburban residents, however, did not com-pletely abandon the Democratic sympathies of their parents and grandparents. Every post-World War II president except Eisenhower has run into seri-ous trouble during his second term. Re-elected presidents, and associates, should remember the adage of ancient Rome All glory is fleeting. Arthur I. Cyr Q Arthur I. Cyr is Clausen Distinguished Professor at Carthage College.

spokeswoman Ritter Hoy. Mark Lander, administrator for the health departments in Columbia and Hamilton counties, said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say this years vaccine is a good match for this years flu, which means that it is more likely to provide protection to people that have been vaccinated. Were in the middle of the season, Lander said. Were not near the end. Columbia and Hamilton counties saw a spike in the number of cases starting in December, but the health departments have seen fewer cases lately, Lander said. Were still having activity, but seeing less cases, Lander said. The flu is still here. While the flu vaccine doesnt necessarily mean full protection, Lander said its still provides a degree of protection. As a public health reminder, if you havent already had a flu shot, we recommend that you get one, he said. Getting the flu shot is one of the best ways to prevent getting the virus. Flu was widespread in 47 states last week, up from 41 the week before, the CDC said Friday. The only states without widespread flu were California, Mississippi and Hawaii. The number of hard-hit states fell to 24 from 29, where larger num-bers of people were treated for flu-like illness. Now off that list: South Carolina, Florida and Arkansas in the South, the first region hit this flu season. Angela Land, of Lake City, caught the flu last June and had was so sick she had to go to the hospital. It just came on all of a sudden, she said. Her doctor told her that she should get a flu vaccine when flu season comes around, which she did early in December. Recent flu reports included holiday weeks when some doctors offic-es were closed, so it will probably take a couple more weeks to get a better picture, CDC officials said Friday. Experts say so far say the season looks moderate. Only time will tell how moderate or severe this flu season will be, CDC Director Thomas Frieden said Friday. The government doesnt keep a running tally of adult deaths from the flu, but estimates that it kills about 24,000 people in an average year. Nationally, 20 children have died from the flu this season. John Karnes, of Wellborn, was at the Lake City Mall with his wife Jennifer. He said he was vaccinated recently but has a cold now. I just got the flu shot last saturday and come down with (a cold) satur-day, he said. He said whatever he has, its not nearly as bad as the flu. He said he doesnt feel bad and isnt vomiting but hes congested. Flu vaccinations are recommended for everyone 6 months or older. Since the swine flu epidemic in 2009, vaccination rates have increased in the U.S., but more than half of Americans havent gotten this years vaccine. Nearly 130 million doses of flu vaccine were distributed this year.

Presley filed a police report alleging White approached Presley and her husband in an aggressive manner in her car in a parking lot after an NAACP meeting Nov. 19. Presley told police the incident put her in fear of her life and later sought a restraining order against White. According to a Lake City Police Department incident report, Presley said White was upset at the thought of Presley becoming NAACP president. White, who was represented by an attorney supplied by the NAACP, clamied Presley sought the restraining order to keep her from attending official NAACP func-tions, including the election of officers. The restraining order was denied. The Nov 19 meeting had been scheduled to vote on a new president, but was delayed by order of national NAACP officials after reports surfaced that pre-elec-tion procedures had not been followed. The election was rescheduled for Dec. 15. Presley won, 16 votes to 13.

Campus USA has 14 service centers in North Central Florida far north as Tallahassee and locations as far south as Summerfield. Campus USA is headquartered near Newberry. The company was chartered in 1935 and has been in business for more than 75 years. Benton said the new Campus USA credit union will be located on U.S. Highway 90, on the south side between Sandlin Way and Sisters Welcome Road. We hope to begin construction in the first half of 2013, he said. Campus will build its prototypical full service branch office at the new site. The office will be approximately 4,500 sq. ft. with a 24-hour ATM, drive-through and ample parking. The Lake City and Columbia County community has embraced the financial services offered by Campus USA Credit Union, Benton said. Campus is committed to serving the financial needs of the residents of Columbia County and wants to show that commitment by investing in a new full service branch location. We are specifically excited about offer-ing drive-through capabilities in this market. Benton said Campus officials have been working on plans for a new loca-tion in Columbia County for a couple of years. The biggest enhancement (of the new location) will be the addition of drive-through lanes, Benton said. Also, this site will offer more visibil-ity and easier access. Campus USA Credit Union opened in Lake City in July 2002. That branch, at 183 SW Bascom Norris Drive, will be closed when the new one opens.From staff reportsColumbia County Relay For Life organizers received an unexpected financial boost Thursday night when Phish Heads Restaurant owners Toni, Philip and James Crenshaw donated $3,600 to the local cancer awareness program. Several of the restaurants customers came out to the check presentation, along with members from the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce, to watch as the donation was made. Kim Nicholson, Columbia County Relay For Life volun-teer, said the funds donated by the Phish Heads res-taurant owners were from one fundraiser they hold annually in support of fam-ily and friends that have had cancer who touch their lives personally. Save the TaTas is a project they have been doing for years as a very close friend of theirs lost her bat-tle to breast cancer and this is one way to remember and honor her, Nicholson said. We have so many of our friends and customers that are battling this disease or have in the past and we want them to know we are always here for them, Toni Crenshaw said. During October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Phish Heads has a private room where a female cus-tomers can create a piece of art in honor of breast cancer awareness month. It is so fun to see how creative our customers care, Toni Crenshaw said. More than a hundred tapestries were made and then auctioned off in November. In 2011 this fundraiser raised around $1,000, and it 2012 it raised $3,600. The success of the event was helping to bring aware-ness to our community and by donating the funds raised to the American Cancer Society, knowing our future may have a cure for cancer in it, Nicholson said. If you would like to get more information on the Relay for Life please con-tact Kim Nicholson (local volunteer chair) at (386) 288-2871 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Relay For Life event will take place 6 p.m. April 26 at Columbia High School.COURTESY Phish Heads restaurant owners recently donated $3,600 to the Columbia County Relay for Life event. Attending the don ation ceremony were: Toni Crenshaw (front row from left), Philli p Crenshaw, Kim Nicholson and Lindsey Greenockle; and back row (from left) James Crenshaw, Kathy Williams-Gidden, Tony G idden, Stephanie Roberts, Tony Roberts and Dennille Deck er. Sheriffs deputies immediately began searching for the vehicle. Sgt. Pete Spurlock saw a vehicle that matched the description parked on Southeast Lomond Street. Spurlock and detective Martin Lee attempted to speak with the vehicles occupants when one of the suspects fled on foot. After a brief foot chase, deputies were able to take the suspect, a 15-year-old male, into custody. Deputies discovered some of the stolen proper-ty in the suspects vehicle and on his person, accord-ing to reports. A subsequent investigation led to the arrest of another suspect, a 17-year-old male. Both juveniles were arrested and taken to jail, reports said. The recov-ered stolen property will be returned to the owner. Additional arrests are expected as this investiga-tion moves forward, said Sgt. Ed Seifert, Columbia County Sheriffs Office public information officer. The quick apprehension of these burglary sus-pects would not have been possible without the assis-tance of the citizen whom was concerned enough to call law enforcement, Seifert said in a prepared statement. Anyone that observes suspicious activ-ity in their community is urged to contact law enforcement. Citizens may also report criminal activ-ity and/or tips to Crime Stoppers of Columbia County at 754-7099. Callers to Crime Stoppers will always remain anony-mous and may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000. Phish Heads donates $3,600 to Relay By MIKE STOBBEAP Medical WriterNEW YORK Some key things to know about the flu season: THE SITUATION: The annual flu season hit about a month early this year, and illness is now wide-spread in 47 states. Many cases are caused by a flu strain that tends to make people sicker. But so far experts say its too early to know whether this will end up being a bad season. Maybe not: There are signs the flu may have already peaked in a few states, though its too early to tell for sure, health officials say. THE VACCINE: This seasons vaccine is well matched to the circulating strains, and theres still some available. It is 62 per-cent effective, according to gov-ernment study results released Friday, which is pretty good for a flu vaccine. Health officials are urging people to get vaccinated; its recommended for everyone 6 months or older. THE DEFENSE: Besides getting a flu shot, wash hands with soap and warm water, and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Keep away from sick people. THE TREATMENT: Most people will get a mild case and can help themselves and protect oth-ers by staying home and resting. But people with severe symptoms should see a doctor. They may be given antiviral drugs or other medications to ease symptoms. COLD OR FLU?: Influenza is not the only bug making people sick. The cold virus and a nasty stomach virus are also going around. It can sometimes be hard to tell the difference, but cold symptoms include stuffy or runny nose, sore throat and sneezing. Flu usually involves fever, along with chills, headache and mod-erate-to-severe body aches and tiredness. Symptoms can come on rapidly, within three to six hours. Key things to know this flu seasonAs a public health reminder, if you havent already had a flu shot, we recommend that you get one. Mark Lander, health department administrator, Columbia and Hamilton counties Florida to spend $60M from banks settlementAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Some of Floridas share of a national $25 billion set-tlement with five of the nations largest mortgage lenders is finally going to start being spent.But its unclear how imme-diate and how wide of an effect the money will have in one of the states hard-est hit by the foreclosure crisis and the recession.A legislative panel next week is expected to sign off on spending $60 mil-lion or the first portion of $334 million Florida received directly under the settlement. This is money going directly to state government and is separate from an estimat-ed $8 billion also expected to go to help homeown-ers and borrowers in the state.Under a deal worked out between Attorney General Pam Bondi and legislative leaders, the $60 million will be used to help first-time homebuyers and to provide counseling to homeowners who are dealing with foreclosure and default.
By ANDREW MIGA Associated Press WASHINGTON Conservatives and watch dog groups are mounting a not-so-fast campaign against a $50.7 billion Superstorm Sandy aid package that Northeastern governors and lawmakers hope to push through the House this coming week. Their complaint is that lots of the money that lawmakers are consider ing will actually go toward recovery efforts for past disasters and other proj ects unrelated to the lateOctober storm. A Senate-passed ver sion from the end of the last Congress included $150 million for what the Commerce Department described as fisher ies disasters in Alaska, Mississippi and the Northeast, and $50 million in subsidies for replanting trees on private land dam aged by wildfires. The objections have led senior House Republicans to assemble their own $17 billion proposal, that when combined with already approved money for flood insurance claims, is less than half what President Barack Obama sought and the Senate passed in December That $17 billion pack age will be brought to the floor by the House Appropriations Committee, and Northeast lawmakers will have a chance to add $33.7 billion more. House Speaker John Boehner intends to let the House vote on both measures. Hes respond ing both to conservatives who are opposed to more deficit spending, and to Govs. Andrew Cuomo, DN.Y., and Chris Christie, R-N.J., who are irate that the House hasnt acted sooner. Critics are taking the sharpest aim at $12.1 bil lion in the amendment for Department of Housing and Urban Development emergency block grants. Any state struck by a federally declared major disaster in 2011, 2012 or this year would qualify for the grants, and thats just about all the states, said Stephen Ellis, vice president of Taxpayers for Common Sense, a bud get watchdog group. Only South Carolina, Arizona and Michigan would not qualify, he said. Thats not a bad chunk of change, particularly if you are trying to get other lawmakers to vote for the bill, Ellis said. State and local govern ments like block grants because they provide more flexibility in how the money is spent. The money can go toward a variety of needs, including hospitals, utilities, roads, small businesses and rent subsidies. The Northeast law makers $33.7 billion amendment also includes more than $135 mil lion to help the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration improve weather forecasting. A lot of the money goes to government agen cies to rebuild rather than helping people actually afflicted by Sandy, Ellis said. Before getting to the aid measures, the House on Monday planned to con sider legislation intended to streamline Federal Emergency Management Agency regulations that critics blame for slowing down recovery efforts. That bill would let FEMA make limited repairs instead of lease payments to provide housing that might be less expensive than traditional agency trailers. A $60.4 billion storm aid package passed by the Senate in December included $188 million for an Amtrak expansion proj ect with an indirect link to Sandy: Officials say that new, long-planned tunnels from New Jersey to Penn Station in Manhattan would be better protected against future flooding. The Club for Growth, a conservative group, com plained the Senate bill was overpriced, full of pork and would swell the fed eral deficit because other government programs werent being cut to cover the costs of the legislation. That bill expired with the old Congress on Jan. 3. Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER NATION SUNDAY, JANUARY 13, 2013 7A 7A Florida Department of Elder Affairs Acceptable Standard For Patient-Reported Pain Reduction 2012 havhos_006989_tri_county_ad_HP_LCreporter_11.indd 1 1/4/13 8:37 AM By MARTIN CRUTSINGER AP Economics Writer WASHINGTON The U.S. trade deficit expanded in November to its widest point in seven months, driv en by a surge in imports that outpaced only modest growth in exports. The Commerce Department report Friday suggests trade will drag on economic growth in the October-December quar ter. A wider trade gap slows growth because it means Americans spent more on foreign products while U.S. businesses earned less in overseas sales. Still, the report showed consumers have maintained an appetite for spending. They kept buying iPhones and other imported goods in November, despite high unemployment and low wage growth. A strong rebound in imports is not necessarily all bad for the U.S. econo my because it indicates that consumers are spending. It shows the private sector is not dead, said Gregory Daco, senior economist at HIS Global Insight. The trade gap widened 15.8 percent to $48.7 billion in November from October, the report noted. Imports grew 3.8 percent, led by gains in shipments of cell phones, including Apples new iPhone. Exports increased only 1 percent. And exports to Europe fell 1.3 percent, fur ther evidence of the pro longed debt crisis that has gripped the region. Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist at Capital Economics, predicts trade trimmed growth by about 0.5 percentage point in the final three months of the year. He expects fourth-quar ter growth to be no more than an annual rate of 1.5 percent. That would be nearly half the 3.1 percent rate reported for the JulySeptember quarter, which was helped by healthy growth in exports.

Lady Tigers pick up back-to-back winsFrom staff reportsColumbia High picked up its second win in as many nights as the Lady Tigers defeated Stanton Prep on senior night, 44-34. It was senior night for the Lady Tigers and the start-ing lineup consisted of all seniors in the 10-point win. It was senior night, but we had a total team effort, Columbia High head coach David Tompkins said. All the seniors were able to start and we picked up our first district win. Justice Campbell led the way for the Lady Tigers with 18 points in the con-test. Aikiria Richburg had 10 points as the only other Columbia player in double figures. Marnae Gaskins finished with seven points in the contest. The Lady Tigers improved to 6-8 with the victory and are now 1-3 in district play. Columbia returns to action at Santa Fe High at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday.Fort White basketballFort White Highs boys basketball team is perched atop the District 5-4A stand-ing and pummeling anyone trying to take its place. The Indians crushed Interlachen High, 92-57, on Thursday and Keystone Heights High, 64-27, on Tuesday with both games on the road. Fort White brought on the running clock against the Rams and coach Isiah Phillips took out his start-ers with 2:00 remaining in the third quarter. Against Interlachen was the best shooting exhibition I have see us do, Phillips said. We hit nine 3-point-ers in the first quarter. We probably didnt miss on our first 12-14 shots. Five differ-ent players made 3s. It was deadly shooting. Melton Sanders paced the Indians with 25 points. Jalen Wyche scored 19 and Trey Phillips also hit double figures with 13. Other scorers were Paul Perry, 9, Chris Cottrell, 8, Michael Mulberry, 8, Joe Powers, 5, Dre Brown, 3, and Kaleel Jackson, 2. Fort White High basketball stays undefeated. PREP continued on 5B Major plans JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterLake City native Michael Kirkman has major plans with the Texas Rangers. Kirkman looks for increased role with Rangers By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comT he Texas Rangers seem to be in turmoil, but Michael Kirkman is taking his usual approach to earning a spot on the pitching staff. The 2005 Columbia High graduate is entering his ninth season with the Texas organization. Kirkman has been with the club for parts of the last three seasons. He has two American League championship rings and pitched in the 2010 World Series. Between hosting a pair of pitching camps for youngsters last week, Kirkman talked of the prospects for himself and the Rangers. I will be leaving for spring training on Feb. 6, Kirkman said. I talk here and there with some of the players and will see a few of them at the Winter Caravan in Arlington next week. Kirkman said the Winter Caravan is mostly for pitchers and his early spring training date is the start-up for pitchers and catchers. Kirkman appeared in 28 games in relief for the Rangers in 2012. He was 1-2 with a 3.82 ERA, 17 walks and 38 strikeouts in 35 1/3 innings. During last year at Round Rock (Texas), the Rangers Triple A farm club, Kirkman pitched 48 innings with 31 walks and 48 strikeouts and had a 5.25 ERA. He had a 5-1 record and started eight games. In the minors at Triple A Oklahoma City in 2010, Kirkman was Pacific Coast League Pitcher of the Year and a midand post-season KIRKMAN continued on 5B BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Cody Beadles attempts a free kick again st Wolfson High in the first half last night.Tigers play to 1-1 tie against Wolfson HighBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comJACKSONVILLE It was a rough start for Columbia High, but a bril-liant finish as the Tigers came back to earn a tie against Wolfson High in dis-trict play on Friday. The Tigers fell behind 1-0 at the 12 minute mark of the first half and trailed the Wolfpack going into the half before Dylan Sessions scored a goal with 24:15 left in the game to help Columbia earn a 1-1 tie. Sessions had a breakaway goal off a ball played by Cody Beadles and scored from the left side of the field on a 22-yard kick to tie the game. Columbia had chances late and two corner kicks in the final 10 minutes of the Sessions second half goal helps CHS tie Wolfpack. CHS continued on 5B

Armstrong, who has long denied doping, will also offer an apology dur-ing the interview scheduled to be taped Monday at his homeowner Austin, Texas, according to the person spoke on condition of ano-nymity because there was no authorization to speak publicly on the matter. While not directly saying he would confess or apolo-gize, Armstrong sent a text message to The Associated Press early Saturday that said: I told her (Winfrey) to go wherever she wants and Ill answer the questions directly, honestly and can-didly. Thats all I can say. The 41-year-old Armstrong, who vehement-ly denied doping for years, has not spoken publicly about the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency report last year that cast him as the leader of a sophisticated and brazen doping program on his U.S. Postal Service teams that included use of steroids, blood boosters and illegal blood transfusions. The USADA report led to Armstrong being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and given a lifetime ban from the sport. Several outlets had reported that Armstrong was considering a confession. The interview will be broadcast Thursday on the Oprah Winfrey Network and oprah.com A confession would come at a time when Armstrong is still facing some legal troubles. Armstrong faces a federal whistle-blower lawsuit filed by former teammate Floyd Landis accusing him of defrauding the U.S. Postal Service, but the U.S. Department of Justice has yet to announce if it will join the case. The British news-paper The Sunday Times is suing Armstrong to recover about $500,000 it paid him to settle a libel lawsuit. A Dallas-based promotions company has threat-ened to sue Armstrong to recover more than $7.5 mil-lion it paid him as a bonus for winning the Tour de France. But potential perjury charges stemming from his sworn testimony denying doping in a 2005 arbitra-tion fight over the bonus payments have passed the statute of limitations. Armstrong lost most of his personal sponsorship worth tens of millions of dollars after USADA issued its report and he left the board of the Livestrong cancer-fighting charity he founded in 1997. He is still said to be worth an esti-mated $100 million. Livestrong might be one reason to issue an apology or make a confession. Vettel to be special guest at Columbia High football banquetFrom staff reportsColumbia Highs Quarterback Club is host-ing its annual Football Banquet at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday. The banquet will kick off in the cafeteria with a meal and this years high-lights and conclude with awards presentations in the CHS auditorium. Our key-note speaker will be Larry Vettel, the voice of the Gators and host of the Larry Vettel show on ESPN 850/900. Tickets for the event will be $12 in advance and $15 at the door. Advance tick-ets are available at Hunter Printing in Lake City. Larry Vettel has just about seen it all when it comes to University of Florida sports. The 54-year-old Martin County High School gradu-ate has broadcast Florida athletics both on the radio and television for more than 30 years. Vettel got his start in radio by keeping statistics at Martin County football games in the mid-1970s. He then attended Florida and was named sports director for WRUF-AM & FM that spring. Since then, Vettel has called seven SEC football title games, three national championship games and had a front-row seat for each of the Gators back-to-back basketball titles in 2007 and 2008. Vettel, who will be among the featured speakers at the Kiwanis Club of Stuarts sixth annual College Football Preview on July 27 at the Lyric Theater in Stuart, spoke with Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers about his career, Gators coach Will Muschamp and Floridas quarterback com-petition. Vettel has been heard on the airwaves in Gainesville and throughout Florida for more than 30 years, broad-casting every Gator sports team on both radio and tele-vision and voicing his opin-ions on sports and a vari-ety of other topics on daily and weekly talk shows. He pioneered sports talk in Gainesville, creating the markets first daily show in the fall of 1989. Currently Vettel is the host of the popular after-noon drive show on ESPN Radio 850/900 weekdays from 4-6 p.m. He also serves as a play-by-play announcer for FoxSports Florida, Sun Sports and Cox Sports Television on telecasts for a number of Gator sports including mens football, basketball, volleyball, softball, swim-ming and gymnastics. He has done play-by-play for seven SEC football champi-onship games. In addition, he is seen on Gatorzone, a television show featuring Gator ath-letics and as a reporter/interviewer for FoxSports Florida and Sun Sports. Vettel is also a writer for Fightin Gators magazine. Vettels earlier career highlights include serving as television play-by-play and color com-mentator for the FHSAA football and basketball championships for many years.

Phillips scored nine points, with seven from Wyche, five from Jackson, four from both Mulberry and Brown, three from Brandon Myers and two from Perry. Fort White (10-0, 7-0) travels to Starke to take on Bradford High in a district game at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.Fort White soccerFort Whites boys soccer team is on a three-game win streak to double its victory total for the season. The Indians beat St. John Lutheran School, 6-0, in Ocala on Thursday. Steven Giardina earned the shut-out in goal. Billy Whitney scored the first two goals for the Indians and Kody Moniz added a pair of goals. Anthony Gonzalez scored a goal to add to his team-leading total and defender Dalton Wilder scored his first goal of the season. Coach Pete Blanchard bragged on the play of freshman Wyatt Kesead, who kept the energy level high with his relentless play as he does every game. Blanchard said the Indians are playing well at a critical time in the season. Two games remain. We played well in spurts, Blanchard said. We did some really good things. We had some moments when we let down, but all in all we are really playing much better team soccer. Winning three in a row has really helped with our con-fidence. Fort White (6-8-2, 3-6-1 district) plays at Palatka High at 7 p.m. Tuesday and hosts Gainesville High at 6 p.m. on Thursday. all-star. That was as a starter, but Kirkman said starting is unlikely for him with Texas. Still, he has high expectations for 2013. I talked to (pitching coach) Mike Maddux and he said I would be in a bigger role this season a set-up role, Kirkman said. What that means I dont know yet, but Im ready for it. I am looking at getting through 2013 on a positive note. That could be a catch phrase for all the Rangers. Texas lost slugger Josh Hamilton to division rival Los Angeles Angels and long-time team leader Michael Young was traded to Philadelphia. Mike Napoli also moved on. We will be a little younger, Kirkman said. Losing Hamiltons bat will hurt and we are losing Young as a leader. We have several guys who can step into that leadership role and put a face on the franchise. Kirkman said Adrian Beltre, Elvis Andrus and Nelson Cruz are some who can step out of the shadows. It is something to deal with, but we are still as good as anybody, Kirkman said. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterMichael Kirkman stretches at the Impact Zone earlier this w eek. Peterson, Watt unanimous All-ProsBy BARRY WILNERAssociated PressNEW YORK Its unanimous, on both sides of the ball. Vikings 2,000-yard man Adrian Peterson and Texans pass-swatting end J.J. Watt were unanimous choices for The Associated Press All-Pro team announced Saturday. Peterson, who came within 9 yards of breaking Eric Dickersons single-season rushing record, and Watt, who led the NFL with 20 1-2 sacks, were selected by all 50 members of a nation-wide panel of media mem-bers who cover the league. Peterson is a three-time All-Pro, while Watt repre-sents lots of new blood. Hes among 17 players making their All-Pro debuts. Obviously its a huge honor, especially for being such a young guy, said Watt, a second-year pro. Its crazy to even think about. Its very humbling and very motivating. It makes me want to do it again and again. Peyton Manning made his sixth team, the previous five while quarterbacking Indianapolis. He led Denver to the AFCs best record, 13-3. Also chosen for the sixth time was Atlanta tight end Tony Gonzalez, who this season moved into second place on the career receptions list. San Francisco linebacker Patrick Willis made it for the fifth time in his six pro seasons. The 49ers had the most All-Pros, six: Willis, fel-low LBs NaVorro Bowman and Aldon Smith, guard Mike Iupati, safety Dashon Goldson and punter Andy Lee. As an organization, we take great pride in the suc-cess and recognition of our players, 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said. This type of acknowledge-ment only comes from hard work and a team-first men-tality, which all six of these men exhibit on a daily basis. They play the game the way it was meant to be played, and are very deserving of this honor. Seattle was next with RB Marshawn Lynch, center Max Unger, cornerback Richard Sherman and safe-ty Earl Thomas. All were selected for the first time. Sherman was incensed when he didnt make the Pro Bowl. He was thrilled with the news he made the All-Pro team because thats comparing the whole league. That is taking individuals and saying they are the best in the NFL at that position and thats what I wanted to be, Sherman said. The Pro Bowl is tak-ing three from each side, its more of a popularity contest. The All-Pro, youre the best at your position. It doesnt matter if youre a fifth-rounder or fourth-rounder or undrafted. If you play the best, youre All-Pro. Denver had three AllPros: LB Von Miller, tackle Ryan Clady and Manning. No other team had more than two. The NFC had 17 players and only 10 made it from the AFC. One rookie, Minnesota kicker Blair Walsh, was chosen. Also on offense were Baltimore fullback Vonta Leach, making it for the third straight year; Detroit WR Calvin Johnson and Chicago WR Brandon Marshall; Houston tack-le Duane Brown; New Orleans guard Jahri Evans, making his fourth consecu-tive appearance; Baltimore kick returner Jacoby Jones; Miami DE Cameron Wake; Cincinnati DT Geno Atkins and New England DT Vince Wilfork; and Chicago CB Charles Tillman.

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe I t is so important to examine every part of your business with fresh eyes every day. When you become accustomed to your businesss environment, it is just so easy to overlook the small, but important details. I think this is just how our brains operate. We just do not really notice small changes that occur over time. However, your business could suffer if you do not see small problems developing. I was giving a seminar in Ecuador in a very poor area on the other side of Quito. Since I only had to teach two hours each day, I had time to get out and see this wonderful country. As I explored each day, I saw the most rampant pov erty that I have ever seen. People were living in condi tions I could not imagine my dog living in. However, as shocking as this was for me at the beginning, I eventually stopped see ing the poverty and the difficult lives these people were living. My brain just accepted these horrific con ditions as the norm for this environment.

From staff reports T he Rountree Moore Automotive Group will unveil the remodeled Nissan Showroom at a grand re-opening cer emony Monday from 4 to 7 p.m. at 4316 W U.S. 90. The public is invited. Jazz music will be played and food and wine will be served. Andy Moore, one of the owners in the automotive group, said the Nissan dealership was partially outdoors before, but now is fully enclosed. Were really excited about the grand re-opening, Moore said. We did a pretty complete remodel. The $400,000 investment by was designed to provide customers an enhanced experience, as well as create a service operations center for the Nissan dealership. The ease of doing business in a comfortable, state-of-the-art facility will create a first class experience for the customer, said Susie Hall, communications officer for the group. Nissan customers can have their car serviced at this facility and wait in a very comfortable, well appointed lounge with Wi-Fi access. The lounge is as comfort able as your family room at home. Moore said that one of the ser vice advisors from another deal ership will be transferred to the Nissan showroom. Hall said the renovation took the building from 2,400 square feet to 4,000 square feet, giving more room to showcase Nissan cars. Dino Daniel, Nissan sales man ager, said there will be a one-dayonly sale of select cars Monday.

The 10th annual North Florida Home and Patio Show will take place March 2 3 at the Columbia County Fairgrounds. Saturday, SHOW continued on 2C DETAILS continued on 2C
March 2, the gates will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., while on Sunday, March 3, the event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Austin Seay, North Florida Home and Patio Show chairman, said this years event organizers are expecting 60 to 80 vendors to participate in the home and patio show. The purpose of the event is to give every-body in the community and opportunity to face-to-face time with vendors concerning anything from a house, patio, including banking and real estate. Organizers are still accepting applications from businesses who want to be vendors at this years event. There are two ways to become a vendor, by either completing an application at www.Rotarydowntown. com or by calling Seay at (386) 288-8217. The num-ber of vendors by industry group are limited. Anybody that gets a contract in by Jan. 25 their donation for the event will also include a 1/8-page advertisement in the Lake City Reporters Home Show Program, Seay said. Seay said normally the event has an average atten-dance of 10,000 to 15,000 people. Were about the only home show thats done in the area that has free parking and no admission fee, Seay said. Its one of those things where the family comes out, walks around and checks every-thing out with no costs, no parking fees and no admis-sion fees. The Rotary Club of Lake City-Downtown uses pro-ceeds from the event to benefit the community with its various programs. This is all charity-funded, Seay said. One hun-dred percent of all the pro-ceeds we distribute back out to the community. We give that money to schol-arships for some of the local high school students, Columbia food bank, local service projects and any-thing that somebody comes up to us and requests with a need. 2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 13, 2013 2CBIZ/MOTLEY FILELowes sales specialist Dale King (left) and seasonal manager Travis King organize a flower display while setti ng up for the Home & Patio Show last year at the Columbia County Fairgrounds. New regulations designed to curb risky mortgages By DANIEL WAGNERAP Business WriterWASHINGTON Federal regulators for the first time are laying out rules aimed at ensuring that mortgage borrowers can afford to repay the loans they take out. The rules being unveiled Thursday by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau impose a range of obliga-tions and restrictions on lenders, including bans on the risky interest-only and no documentation loans that helped inflate the hous-ing bubble. Lenders will be required to verify and inspect bor-rowers financial records. The rules discourage them from saddling borrowers with total debt payments totaling more than 43 per-cent of the persons annual income. That includes exist-ing debts like credit cards and student loans. CFPB Director Richard Cordray, in remarks pre-pared for an event Thursday, called the rules the true essence of responsible lending. The rules, which take effect next year, aim to make sure that people who work hard to buy their own home can be assured of not only greater consumer pro-tections but also reasonable access to credit, he said. Cordray noted that in years leading up to the 2008 financial crisis, consumers could easily obtain mort-gages that they could not afford to repay. In contrast, in subsequent years banks tightened lending so much that few could qualify for a home loan. The new rules seek out a middle ground by protecting consumers from bad loans while giving banks the legal assurances they need to increase lending, he said. The mortgage-lending overhaul is a priority for the agency, which was created under the 2010 financial law known as the Dodd-Frank Act. The agency is charged with reducing the risk of a credit bubble by helping to ensure that borrowers are better informed and loans are more likely to be repaid. The agency is charged with writing and enforcing rules that flesh out the law passed by Congress. Some provisions are required under the law, but the agen-cy had broad discretion in designing many of the new requirements. The rules limit features like teaser rates that adjust upwards and large balloon payments that must be made at the end of the loan period. They include several exceptions aimed at ensur-ing a smooth phase-in and protecting access to credit for underserved groups. For example, the strict cap on how much debt consum-ers may take on will not apply immediately. Loans that meet separate federal standards also would be permitted for the first seven years. Balloon payments would be allowed for certain small lenders that operate in rural or underserved communi-ties, because other loans may not be available in those areas. The bureau also proposed amendments that would exempt from the rules some loans made by community banks, credit unions and nonprofit lenders. DETAILS: Dont be lulled into blindness Continued From Page 1CThis kind of blindness can occur anywhere and under a variety of condi-tions, including at my laundromat. I am not very domesticated. I have not turned on my stove or oven in two years, and I go to a laundromat to have my clothes washed and folded. Every time I go, the laundramats parking lot is filthy and full of debris, and I am sure the owner has just become so accus-tomed to these conditions that he does not really even see the mess. I just know that if he did, he would have the parking lot swept each morning and this would encourage more customers to use his services. For another example, the other day, I stopped into Bob Evans restaurant for breakfast. As I was sitting at the counter, I looked through the open-ing into the kitchen and saw all the chefs wearing t-shirts stating the restau-rants mission. I am sure the restaurant spent time and money developing these shirts, but unfortunately, the aprons the chefs had to wear completely covered the mission statement. No one seemed to be aware of this detail even though it was pretty obvious to my eyes. Another restaurant is using yard signs to draw in customers. Over time, the signs have deteriorated from exposure to the ele-ments, gotten bent and blown off. Needless to say, they were not sending a very good message to the businesss clientele. We all know the devil is in the details. What makes it tricky is that you have to be able to see the details in order to make the changes that are so necessary. Just like in the examples above, it is so easy for you to miss details that can have negative consequences for your business. To make sure you do not slip into this unawareness, you have to constantly jog your mind and try different things everyday so you can see your surroundings with fresh eyes. Try taking a different route to work each day or wearing your watch on your other hand every other day. One of my favorite ways to stay fresh is to get plenty of exercise before I go to work. This really just seems to energize me. Additionally, when I go to work or meetings, I try to focus on my breathing and get out of my head because if I am lost in my thoughts, I know I am not present. Now go out and make sure that you have a method in place for keep-ing your mind fresh so you are able to see the details of your business.

Are you eating too fast? A digital fork will let you know. Is your toddler hav-ing trouble sitting still on the potty? Let the iPotty come to the rescue. Are you bored driving to work in a four-wheeled vehicle? Climb inside a 1,600-pound mechanical spider for your morning commute. Of course, not all of the prototypes introduced at the annual gadget show will succeed in the market-place. But the innovators who shop their wares here are fearless when it comes to pitching new gizmos, be they flashy, catchy or just plain odd. A search for this years strangest (and perhaps least useful) electronic devices yielded an extra-loud pair of headphones from a metal band, an eye-sensing TV that didnt work as intended and more. Take a look:IPOTTYToilet training a toddler is no picnic, but iPotty from CTA Digital seeks to make it a little easier by letting parents attach an iPad to it. This way, junior can gape and paw at the iPad while taking care of business in the old-fashioned part of the plastic potty. IPotty will go on sale in March, first on Amazon.com. There are potty training apps out there thatll reward toddlers for accomplishing the deed. The company is also examining whether the pottys attachment can be adapted for other types of tablets, beyond the iPad. Its novel to a lot of people but weve gotten great feedback from parents who think itd be great for train-ing, said CTA product spe-cialist Camilo Gallardo.MOTORHEADPHONESBass-heavy headphones that borrow the names of hip-hop luminaries like Dr. Dre have become extreme-ly popular. Rock fans have been left out of the party until now. British metal band Motorhead, famous for playing gut-punchingly loud, is endorsing a line of headphones that go to eleven and are hitting U.S. stores now. Says lead singer and bassist Lemmy Kilmister, explaining his creative input: I just said make them louder than every-body elses. So thats the only criteria, and that it should reflect every part of the sound, not just the bass. The Motorheadphone line consists of three overthe-ear headphones and six in-ear models. The initia-tive came from a Swedish music-industry veteran, and distribution and mar-keting is handled by a Swedish company, Krusell International AB.EYE-SENSING TVA prototype of an eyesensing TV from Haier didnt quite meet viewers eye-to-eye. An on-screen cursor is supposed to appear where the viewer looks to help, say, select a show to watch. Blinking while controlling the cur-sor is supposed to result in a click. In our brief time with the TV, we observed may quirks and comic dif-ficulties. For one, the companys demonstrator Hongzhao Guo said the system doesnt work that well when view-ers wear eyeglasses. (That kind of defeats the purpose of TV, no?) But it turns out, one bespectacled reporter was able to make it work. But the cursor appeared a couple inches below where the viewer was looking. This resulted in Guo snap-ping his fingers to attract the reporters eye to cer-tain spots. The reporter dutifully looked, but the cursor was always a bit low. Looking down to see the cursor only resulted in it moving further down the TV screen.PARROT FLOWER POWERA company named after a bird wants to make life easier for your plants. A plant sensor called Flower Power from Paris-based Parrot is designed to update your mobile device with a wealth of information about the health of your plant and the environment it lives in. Just stick the y-shaped sensor in your plants soil, download the accompany-ing app and hopefully watch your plant thrive. It basically is a Bluetooth smart low-energy sensor. It senses light, sunlight, tem-perature, moisture and soil as well as fertilizer in the soil, a spokesman said. Carmakers let app developers drive By RYAN NAKASHIMAAssociated PressLAS VEGAS Its not wise to Google the nearest gas sta-tion, compose email, or use your smartphone to check the latest sports scores while driving. But many Americans do. Drivers have grown so accustomed to their on-the-go tasks that automakers are increasingly trying to make those things eas-ier to pull off with both hands on the wheel and both eyes on the road. As General Motors and Ford commissioned ideas from app makers this week, the possibili-ties for what you can do with your vehicles steering wheel buttons, microphone, speakers and inter-nal gauges are quickly expand-ing. How would you like to choose your favorite tune by simply utter-ing the songs title, turn your car into a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, or respond to an ad you hear on the radio without lifting a finger? At the International CES show, General Motors and Ford launched programs that will open their designs to developers, invit-ing them to create software appli-cations for future car models. Its a relatively new strategy for car makers, but one that many gadget manufacturers employ, including Apple, which did it for the original iPhone in 2007. The programs free the automakers from having to keep pace with new technologies by tying the functionality of their cars internal systems to advances in smartphones. Ford Motor Co.s app developer program, called Sync AppLink, is a way for (the company) not to worry about the next big app, said product manager Julius Marchwicki. General Motors Co. said its framework gives develop-ers a whole new sandbox, with wheels. In some ways, though, the current systems inside cars have a long ways to go to provide the functionality that smartphones have offered for years. For instance, in a demo of Fords new integration with music service Rhapsody, you can wirelessly sync your phone with the car and listen to playlists you have already created by pressing the voice button on the steering wheel and saying play playlist 1. But you cant just choose a track by voice on a whim, which is part of what makes these unlimited streaming plans attrac-tive even at $10 a month. Saying Bruno Mars to your Ford car wont pull up Locked Out of Heaven, although typing it on Rhapsodys website or smartphone app can. The same is true of Pandoras radio app in Ford cars. The company plans to improve the cars ability to respond to voice commands that cover a wider range of search terms and speech in AppLink 2.0, which is expected out by September of this year, said C.J. King, develop-ment engineer for AppLink. General Motors showed off its new relationship with Apples Siri voice assistant, which is newly integrated in some of its cars including the Chevy Spark. Siri, however, only linked up to the cars speaker and microphone and didnt offer access to the cars inner systems. Rhapsody CEO Jon Irwin said that its really just the beginning for automakers to work more closely with high-tech content providers. This is the first step in whats going to be a really exciting year, Irwin said. As that technology evolves, youll see it get better and better. When it comes to integrating new driver-friendly advance-ments, American automakers are playing catch-up to their Asian counterparts. Hyundais Blue Link technology syncs with iPhones and Android devices already and allows users to check their cars maintenance data like tire pres-sure, fluids and the condition of airbags on their mobile devices. The service debuted in 2011 on its Sonata and is expanding to a wider range of vehicles. Voice-activated control of third-party music apps isnt integrated yet, but the company is exploring using Googles Android software to do so. Toyotas use of voice is the most advanced of the auto provid-ers, even though it had nothing new to show at this years CES. When it upgraded its Entune service for Toyota cars and Enform for its Lexus line at CES last year, drivers got the ability to use their voice to control several key apps, allowing them to say, for example, Adele to the iHeart Radio or Pandora app to create a custom station with tracks from the British singer and others who sound similar. Voice commands also worked to buy movie tickets, make res-taurant reservations through the OpenTable app and get turn-by-turn navigation towards cheap gas. Both Toyotas and Hyundais systems require yearly subscrip-tion fees after free trial periods. On Chryslers Ram 1500 truck introduced at the gadget show this year, iHeart Radio was added as an application. Users who link their smartphones to the car can select from customized stations theyve made already but arent able to create new ones by voice. That is not likely to be a bar-rier for long, said Brian Lakamp, president of iHeart parent Clear Channel Digital. Voice activation its a trend and its going to get more and more sophisticated over time, Lakamp said. Well be lock-step when theyre taking advantage of voice to the extent they can. The truck also includes the option of using a 3G cellular phone chip inside the vehicle itself to become a Wi-Fi hotspot for $15 a day. That could be an attractive feature for people who might want to use the truck for a tail-gate party. And one small company called Livio was looking to drum up some business from radio stations and automakers with a prototype for embedding tiny codes inside traditional FM radio streams. The codes would allow cellphone users to respond to advertise-ments with a tap on their smart-phone screen.

LIFE Sunday, January 13, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D A s we passed by the brick exte-rior of an older building while driving through the streets of Washington, D.C., our cabbie told us the place was a beer pub that is in the Guinness World Record Book for having the most varieties of beers commercially available. Its called Brickskeller and we decided we had to go. Our first day in town, we wanted to have lunch there, so we looked up the address and learned they were closed. Because we were passengers in the cab when we passed by, we had some difficulty finding our way back on foot. We made a couple of wrong turns so decided to stop at a nearby hotel and ask for direc-tions. Im traveling with Sue, not Scott, because guys dont ask for direc-tions. Ha! Ha! The concierge or bellman, I forget which, looks at us questioningly and says, I dont think you ladies want to go there. Its really not a proper place for ladies. Are you sure you have the right place? We thought this was funny and assured him we had the right place. We still didnt question the establishment at all. At this point we were determined and it was one of those things we just had to do to cross off of our list. So we finally made it to Brickskeller! We arrived at the front steps of the old brick build-ing (which looked more like an old house) and walked up and into the main entrance. There was a sign and door immedi-ately to the right indicating Brickskeller this way so we walked through another old wooden door and down stairs to be greeted by the dank smells, dark room and old beer artifacts; a true hole in the wall kind of place. But what was amazing were the coolers lining the wall behind the bar with over a thousand different beers to choose from. We bellied up to the bar on our bar stools made of old beer barrels and received a menu which was more like a photocopied booklet in black and white that was probably the thickest menu Ive ever seen. We both ordered a beer something different that we just dont drink every day heck, I was just happy to get Sue in an establishment that didnt serve wine. We also ordered the Pentagon Cheese Board with five cheeses with a loaf of warm French bread. We decided to have a second beer, and both let the bartender make a recommendation. We were feeling pretty On a Beer Run Story ideas?ContactRobert BridgesEditor754email@example.com Lake City Reporter1DLIFEBy DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comM ark Lander, health department administrator for Columbia and Hamilton counties, grew up in Southwest Florida, but has come to call North Florida home. I came up here and just never left, Lander said. He said he enjoys going to the grocery store and it taking an hour because he runs into so many people he knows. Lander said he could have left the area for other opportunities, but feels he can have the largest impact right here in North Florida. What kept me here is that sense of community ... he said. You just feel like you can really make a difference. He sees plenty of room for improvement for public health in Columbia and Hamilton counties, he said. Lander takes his job as administrator of the Health Department seriously and believes in the power of knowledge in fighting chronic diseases. While Lander has been acting administrator for the two health departments since March 1, he was approved as the permanent administrator by the Columbia County Board of Commissioners in December. In 1990, Landers first professional job, after graduating from the University of Florida, kept him in the North Florida area. The job was evaluating septic systems along the Suwannee River in an attempt to find out the degree that septic systems were causing contamination of the river. What some would loathe to do, driving up and down the river checking for leaky septic tanks, Lander found enjoyable. It was a really cool job, he said. He traveled across 12 North Florida counties, getting to know the people and the plac-es of the area. He said one of the people he worked with was from Columbia County, and he would spend a lot of time at the Columbia County Health Department. F lorida celebrates Arbor Day this year on Jan. 18. We have the earliest celebration date in the nation due to the fact that its cold enough for dorman-cy, yet the ground is not frozen. These factors make Floridas Arbor Day, the third Friday in January, an excellent time to get out and plant trees. Some good hurricane-resistant choices are live oak, cabbage palm and crape myrtle. The warm weather we are having, however, can cause unex-pected damage to established plants, especially if the warm temperatures have lured you into early pruning activities. Pruning stimulates plant growth, and if plants are pushing dormancy because of the unseasonably warm temperatures, they may begin to grow and become very vulnerable to inevitable cold snaps. Keep those blankets and sheets handy so you can give ten-der plants some protection when frosty nights return. Spring flowering trees and shrubs such as dogwoods, azaleas and spireas should be pruned in late spring after the plant has bloomed. These plants have already set flower buds on last years growth. If you prune them in the winter, you will cut off all those flower buds that are waiting to open in the spring. Summer bloomers such as roses and crape myrtles have not developed their flower buds yet. They will bud and flower on new growth that emerges this coming spring. Flower production will not suffer from late winter pruning and shaping. Just hold off for a few more weeks. This is a good time to use dormant horticultural oil to treat the overwintering pests that are more difficult to control dur-ing the growing season. Some popular landscape plants such as camellia, hibiscus and holly have persistent scale problems. These oils kill all stages of scale, but before using them, refer to the product label for plant sensitivity and temperature ranges. While outside enjoying a delightful yet unseasonable warm winter day, check your planting beds for moisture. Warm weather will cause more water loss from plants and soil, so those water sensitive plants may need an extra drink of water. Established drought tolerant plants are fine. Please join UF/IFAS Extension for free workshops on Plant Propagation for Home Gardeners and prepare for spring gardening. The workshops are at Fort White Public Library on Thursday at 5:45 p.m. and at the main Columbia County Library in Lake City on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. They will be pre-sented by entrepreneurs and UF Master Gardeners Lou Lowder and Sue and Bruce Karcher.

Surely youve heard that Americans get way too many calories and nutrition-ally empty calories at that from alcohol. But the second rule of drinking on a diet is that since you probably will ignore Rule No. 1, find a way to enjoy alcohol without letting it swamp your healthy intentions. Here are a few suggestions on how to go about that.Q THINK BEFORE YOU DRINKYou dont have to give up alcohol entirely for weight control, says Andrea Giancoli, registered dietitian and spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association. But you do have to fit it into your calorie limit. Making that work means knowing the calo-rie counts of what you drink. For women, federal health guidelines recommend no more than one drink a A recent study found Americans get almost as many calories from alcohol as from soft drinks.ASSOCIATED PRESS DRINK continued on 2D TRAVEL TALES Sandy Kishton
By JENNIFER FORKERAssociated PressThe home-improvement and design shows make it look easy: Take a simple sheet of inexpensive ply-wood and presto! In a few minutes, youve got a table, a cabinet or a lounge chair. Its not that fast or dirtcheap, but it can be that easy, according to wood-working experts who speak fondly of plywoods many merits. Plywood is the starting point for many of the things I build, says artist and designer Jimmy DiResta of New York City. With some imagination and inventive-ness it can become any-thing. Plywood is cheaper and often stronger than solid wood, easy to find at home-improvement or lumber stores, and darn it it looks good. Plywood is made from thin layers called plies, or veneers glued togeth-er under heat and pressure, with each ply laid perpen-dicular to the next. This cross-graining gives ply-wood its strength and sta-bility, says Philip Schmidt, author of PlyDesign (Storey Publishing, 2012). Since plywood comes in more than a dozen stan-dard thicknesses and twice as many grades, check a buying guide Home Depot has one online before purchasing it. Schmidt recommends using a cabinet-grade mate-rial, such as Baltic birch, for do-it-yourself projects. The plies are thin and even, and the exterior is smooth, sanded and blemish-free. Beluga caviar notwithstanding, Baltic birch ply-wood may be Russias fin-est export, Schmidt writes in his book. PlyDesign includes 73 projects for novices and experienced builders. Do-it-yourself project magazines such as Ready Made and Make, and online sites such as Instructables offer many other ways to use plywood. Plywood is inherently modern, if you think of modern as starting in the 1920s, says Schmidt, of Denver. Its still beautiful wood and its really easy to work with. A jigsaw can cut straight lines and curves, so thats your primary tool, says Schmidt. After that, invest in a good-quality drill. If you want to go deeper into plywood DIY, get a circular saw and a router, which helps cut out multiple pat-tern pieces. I dont own a table saw or any stationary power tools, says Schmidt, a proj-ect designer and author of 17 design books. Im more into DIY. DiResta recommends the jigsaw and circular saw for most plywood projects, and suggests starting out by building a storage box or simple bench. He offers video tutorials on YouTube, sponsored by Make maga-zine. Plywood has its drawbacks. Schmidt warns against sand-papering through the thin top layer, ruining the look of your piece. To avoid this, use a fine-grit sandpaper, and be careful. DiResta warns against splinters. A few years ago, he inadvertently brushed a palm against a cut edge, and a matchstick-size splin-ter went through his palm. He recommends wear-ing gloves when cutting plywood, and sanding cut edges with a sanding block. Then theres the edge thing, as Schmidt calls it: Do you cover the exposed plywood edge or let it be? Design will dictate, both DiResta and Schmidt say. Some modern-looking pieces look great with their plywood edges exposed, and the better quality the plywood, the better itll look. For other projects, you may want to cover that edge with veneer. Exposing the edge strata of the panel is really cool, says Schmidt. Its a nice design element that you can work with. For some, a project is too delicate or the plywood too high-end to entrust the cutting to ones own hand. If that happens, find a local furniture-design business to cut the piece for you. They use computer-con-trolled routers that make precise cuts. Denver furniture maker Scott Bennett works with birch-and-alder plywood to make storage and shelving pieces for his company, Housefish. Occasionally, hes asked to cut a one-off piece for a designer or DIY enthusiast. The cost is less than most people expect, he says, averaging about $100 per hour of work. Considering how many hours you might spend trying to cut a complicated shape with hand tools spending a couple hundred dollars to have a computer cut out your parts can be a good way to get into DIY projects, Bennett says. 2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JANUARY 13, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-04242DLIFE Stop by the Lake City Reporter for your complimentary engagement package.

TRAVEL: Beer adventure Continued From Page 1Dadventurous. LOL! Happy to have finally made it, we thoroughly enjoyed the beers and the snacks, the atmosphere in general, but most of all we made new memories. While writing this article I looked up Brickskeller online to verify something and learned that just a short time after we were there, which was May of 2010, the family-owned business closed after 53 years in operation. It reopened in December of 2010 under new owners and a new name, Bier Baron. DRINK: Hollow calories Continued From Page 1Dday (5 ounces of wine, 1.5 ounces of liquor or a 12-ounce beer). For men the limit is two drinks. Though the numbers can vary, most wines sport about 120 calories per serving. Most hard liquors, such as gin and vodka, have about 100 calories per serving. A regular beer has a bit more than 150 calories, while a light beer has about 100. Those numbers make the hard stuff seem like a good choice when youre watching your calories. Except that most people arent going to just sip a jigger of vodka and call it a night. And once you start adding mixers and sweeteners and juices, the calories can add up fast. Just 4 ounces of strawberry daiquiri mixer can add 260 calories to your rum, for a total of 360 calo-ries, roughly the same as a Sausage McMuffin from McDonalds. Even a simple rum and Coke can have 200 calories or more. A vodka and cranberry juice has about the same. Mixers can really add up, says Giancoli. If you like to use liquor vs. hav-ing beer or wine, go for the low-calorie mixer. If youre somebody who likes rum and cola, do rum and diet cola. If youre somebody who likes vodka cranberry, you can do vodka with diet cranberry. It can take some of the spontaneity out of an eve-ning, but if youre planning to drink its best to plan ahead, tally the calories and budget accordingly.Q ICE IS NICELisa McRee, a former Good Morning America co-anchor who now pub-lishes the popular recipe and diet tip site The Skinny, remembers being on a no white foods diet and being miserable since that included no white wine. These days she eschews fad diets for a sensible regime of good food cooked well, heavy on the vegetables. The philosophy really comes down to eat more things that grow and fewer things that walk, she says. Cutting carbs and other empty calories leaves a little room for alcohol. And when she wants to enjoy her favorite chardonnay she slips an ice cube or two into the glass. That makes the drink last longer and also dilutes the alcohol, an important point since alco-hol is a notorious sapper of willpower. In summer, shell do the same with a light red wine. While you probably wouldnt want to do this with a heavy red wine such as cabernet sauvignon or in front of your vino-phile friends serving wine over ice is not with-out precedent. McRee first came across it while travel-ing in Italy in 100-degree weather and seeing the locals chill their wine with a few cubes.GET ON THE FRESH EXPRESSJacques Bezuidenhout, the master mixologist for Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, has an easy tip for trimming calories from drinks: Keep it simple. When I approach healthy drinking, I focus on what goes in the glass, he says. Is the juice fresh squeezed? Are we using quality spirits? When you look at those key factors then really look at what kind of sugar you add to the drink! Sugar is the first thing that will start to tack on the calories ... Using better ingredients and fresh juice means you need to add less sugar or liqueurs to balance out the cocktail. LANDER: Veteran given permanent job Continued From Page 1DIn 2003, Lander landed at the Columbia County Health Department as director of environmental health. Everybody in the office I had worked with, he said. It was like coming back to an old family. He said sometimes people will comment that the Health Department acts as a hospital. While that is true, Lander said, the department does more than just primary care. A lot of what we do at the Health Department is pure education, he said. One of our biggest jobs is to educate and empower. Lander said that the flu has overwhelmed some areas this year, and that its never too late to get a flu shot. He said in the Chicago area, hospitals have turned away emer-gency flu cases and had patients go to other hos-pitals. Lander noted that local hospitals have indicated that they are seeing more cases of the flu compared to last year. He said he doesnt expect area hospitals to turn away any flu patients, but he still recommended that residents of the Hamilton and Columbia contact their medical provider and receive a vac-cination. If you havent already gotten your flu shot, its not too late, Lander said. Business travel to declineSCOTT MAYEROWITZAP Business WriterNEW YORK Fewer business travelers are like-ly to hit the road this year as the travel industry is challenged by corporate Americas persistent eco-nomic fears. Business travelers are expected to take 431.8 million trips in 2013, the Global Business Travel Association said Tuesday. The industry trade group had forecast 435 million trips back in July. The latest estimate would mean a 1.1 percent decline from the 436.5 million trips taken in 2012. Fewer people traveling, however, doesnt mean lower costs. Airfare, hotel rooms, meals and car rent-als have helped to push up the overall price of busi-ness travel. In 2012, business travelers spent $254.9 billion, up 1.6 percent from the prior year. This year, the travel association expects anoth-er 4.6 percent increase to $266.7 billion. Thats down slightly from the $268.5 bil-lion predicted back in July. Worries over the tax and budget battle in Washington were blamed for some of the 2012 declines. Now that tax changes have been approved, the business travel group is cautiously optimistic that travel will improve. ...

Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JANUARY 13, 2013 3D3DLIFEBy LEANNE ITALIEAssociated PressNEW YORK Janell Burley Hofmann honored her 13-year-old sons maturity and growth at Christmas with his first iPhone, but it came with strings attached. Eighteen strings, to be exact, in a written code of conduct that placed the mommy blogger at the center of the debate over how par-ents should handle technology in the hands of their teens, especial-ly younger ones just entering the frenetic world of social networks and smartphones. Thousands of people, including those bemoaning too much helicopter parenting, commented and shared the funny, heartfelt agreement posted at the holiday by the Cape Cod, Mass., mom of five. The interest crashed her website and led her to appear with her eldest, Gregory, on morning TV. Hofmanns first order of business: 1. It is my phone. I bought it. I pay for it. I am loaning it to you. Arent I the greatest? She included caveats that some parenting and tech addiction experts consider crucial in eas-ing new entrants onto Facebook, Instagram and shiny new mobile devices: You must share passwords with a parent, answer their calls, hand over said device early on school nights and a little later on weekends. You must avoid hurt-ful texts and porn and pay for a replacement if your phone falls into the toilet, smashes on the ground, or vanishes into thin air. Of the latter Hofmann advises her teen, Mow a lawn, stash some birthday money. It will hap-pen, you should be prepared. Hofmann said in an interview that she decided on the contract as she pondered the power of the technology she and her hus-band were about to plop into their sons world. She was looking for a way to be present in his phone use without being a creeper, his word for stalky, spying parents. She wasnt surprised that her list, which Greg agreed to, resonates with other parents. It also resonates with psycholo-gist David Greenfield, a technol-ogy addiction specialist in West Hartford, Conn. We have ritualized the gift of the smartphone, he said, yet many parents dont have the know-how, stomach, time or interest in actively guiding kids when they first jump into digital life. For some parents, he said, its only when things go horribly wrong that attention is paid. He knows of parents who have gone so far as to jam all Internet and cell phone signals at home when they couldnt get their kids to power down. Police in Rocklin, Calif., said two girls, ages 15 and 16, used a prescription sleeping medication recently to spike the milkshakes of ones parents so they could log onto the Internet after 10 p.m. Greenfield recommends contracts like Hofmanns, if parents follow through. Others creep using apps and monitoring soft-ware. He thinks thats fine, too. Theres little data broken down by age on the number of Internet users whose lives are negatively impacted by smartphones, tab-lets, laptops and other technology, Greenfield said. In the gener-al population, studies range from 1 percent to 10 percent of users whose digital habits interfere with their lives. Greenfield esti-mates the reality is somewhere between 2 and 6 percent. Hofmann was looking for a way to open the conversation with her son. Many other parents are, obviously, concerned as well about what their teens are doing online, but also what is being done to them. In a recent report from the Pew Internet & American Life Project, 81 percent of parents with online teens said they are concerned about how much information advertisers can learn about their kids behavior and 72 percent said theyre concerned about how their children interact online with people they dont know. Nearly 70 percent said theyre concerned about how their chil-dren manage their reputations online and 57 percent of kids ages 12 and 13 said theyre very concerned about it. The report said parents are being more proactive, not just relying on parental-control tools such as browser filters. An increasing number are joining their kids on social media, but older parents may be approach-ing their kids lives there with the wrong emotional filters. We see it as a separation from social behavior. They see it AS social behavior, Greenfield said. Im not sure were going to be able to bridge that difference generationally. More tech abuse education needs to be done in this country before teens are actively engaged, he said. In parts of Europe and Asia, for instance, kids learn how to handle their digital lives as formal training in third or fourth grade. Here they think of it like its part of their body, and they treat it that way, Greenfield said. Hofmanns contract is her own attempt at education. Dont take a zillion pictures and videos. There is no need to document everything. Live your experienc-es. They will be stored in your memory for eternity. And she gets downright inspirational toward the bottom: Leave your phone home some-times and feel safe and secure in that decision. It is not alive or an extension of you. Learn to live without it. Be bigger and more powerful than FOMO fear of missing out. Hofmann also urges her boy to, Keep your eyes up. See the world happening around you. Stare out a window. Listen to the birds. Take a walk. Talk to a stranger. Wonder without googling. Finding ways to cope with smartphones and social networks. Moms phone code of conduct goes viral PARENTING ASSOCIATED PRESSJanell Burley Hofmann and her son Gregory of Sandwich Mass., go over a copy of the contract she drafted and that Gregory signed as a condition for receiving his fir st Apple iPhone. Ferrets: domesticated or wild? By SUE MANNINGAssociated PressLOS ANGELES The difference between own-ing a ferret in Hawaii and one in Pennsylvania can be up to three years in jail and hundreds of thou-sands of dollars in fines. Thats the penalty for ferret fans in the Aloha State, where the 3-pound members of the weasel and polecat family are banned amid concerns of the animals escaping and wreaking havoc on the islands delicate eco-systems. Similar fears are behind a decades-old ban in California, which has one of the nations most diverse ecosystems. The concern is that if these animals were released, like other non-native species have been, they would adapt and thrive and out-com-pete native species for food, and prey on native species, said Adrianna Shea, deputy director of Californias Fish and Game Commission. States have had problems with feral animals in nonnative environments, creating problems for native species by eating them or ravaging their food supply. Feral cats, for example, have deci-mated bird populations. In Hawaii, the introduction of the mongoose to com-bat a rat problem was a very poor idea. Rats are nocturnal and mon-gooses are diurnal. They only saw each other for a short period between dusk and dawn, said Minami Keevin, a land vertebrate specialist with the Hawaii Department of Agriculture. But ferret fans argue that the foot-long domesticated creatures make excellent pets and shouldnt be regulated by wildlife agencies. Ferrets are really wonderful animals for those of us who are so inclined. They are messy, and theyre expensive, and theyre demanding, but they are full of personal-ity, full of love and full of joy, said Pat Wright, who lives in La Mesa, near San Diego, and has been fight-ing Californias ban for nearly 20 years. Keeping a ferret as a pet takes more time, care and money than owning a dog or cat. The American Veterinary Medical Association in Schaumburg, Ill., which recently posted a YouTube video on pet ferrets, noted that they need to be caged most of the time, require hours of exercise and emit a musky odor that many people find unpleasant. Large cages are expensive, but on the other hand, ferrets dont require as much medical or dental care as cats or dogs. They are wonderful little clowns that not only steal your heart but they will steal anything they deem is theirs. This includes your shoes, socks, pens, pencils, hair-brushes, potatoes, car keys, wallets and clothing. I had two ferrets that tried to take my notebook com-puter to what is called their hidey-hole, said AmyJo Casner of Harrisville, Pa., who legally owns fer-rets Manny, Marcuz, and Marylin. Their antics are better than antidepressants, said Casner, whose pets inspired her to start a fer-ret clothing line that she sells online. A count of ferret owners across the U.S. was unavailable, but the American Pet Products Association said that in 1992, 2 percent of people who owned a small animal like a mouse, rat, ferret, gerbil, rabbit, hamster or guinea pig said they had a ferret. In 2000, 10 per-cent of small-animal own-ers said they had a ferret, and 7 percent in 2010 had them. Thats despite bans in the two states, plus a number of large cities including New York, and U.S. military bases. In California, where having a ferret can net a $500 fine or six months in jail, Wright estimated between 50,000 and 500,000 pet ferrets live a clandestine existence. His guess is based on ferret-supply sales and a 5,000-member mailing list for his ferret legalization cause. Shea, who said Fish and Game has never tried to verify those numbers, said California doesnt have enough game war-dens to chase violators, so the ban is not strictly enforced. Billboards close to the borders of Arizona and Nevada point motor-ists in the direction of fer-ret sellers. And most pet stores in California carry ferret food and supplies. But the issue is taken seriously in Hawaii, where every report of a ferret is checked. One captured last year in Hilo was quar-antined until it could be shipped out of state. Pets ASSOCIATED PRESSPat Wright, an advocate for legalizing ferret owner ship in California, gets a kiss from one his three ferrets at his home in La Mesa, Calif. The fe rrets live peacefully along with Wrights three dogs and a cat. Ferret fans argue that the fo ot-long domesticated creatures make excellent pets and shouldnt be regulated by wildli fe agencies. In some states, having one can get you jail time. London subway system marks 150 years service By ROBERT BARRAssociated PressLONDON Busy, congested, stressful. This is how the worlds first sub-way system was depicted by London newspapers in 1863. Its a situation that would be familiar to nail-biting pas-sengers of the present as the Tube turned 150 years old Wednesday. The constant cry, as the trains arrived, of no room, appeared to have a very depressing effect upon those assembled, The Guardian newspaper reported on the public opening of Londons Metropolitan Line on Jan. 10, 1863. The first stretch of rail had opened the day before, on Jan. 9. The line the first part of what is now an extensive London transport network that has shaped the British capital and its suburbs ran 120 trains each way dur-ing the day, carrying up to 40,000 excited passengers. Extra steam locomotives and cars were called in to handle the crowds. Architectural historian David Lawrence said the rapid expansion of the subway network better known in London as the Tube had a major impact on the citys design. The Tube helped lure people away from the inner city into new areas where new hous-ing was being built near the stations. The houses were built in a village style mocked by some historians as already dated. They were selling an England which had already passed by that time, said Lawrence, a principal lectur-er at Kingston University. In 1919, the Metropolitan company became directly involved in developing what came to be called Metro-land on surplus land. One of the companys promotional posters displayed drab rows of inner city terrace houses and urged people to, Leave this and move to Edgware. However, they were also selling the dual benefit of a quiet, unpolluted suburban life paired with rapid access to the cultural and economic benefits of the metropolis, Lawrence said. The pioneering Metropolitan Line sparked a new wave of underground development which today has grown into a 249-mile system carrying 1.2 billion passenger journeys a year. Although Londoners love to complain about its some-times sketchy performance, the Tube is an efficient way to move vast numbers of people in and out of the city. ASSOCIATED PRESSFarringdon Station dates back to the beginnings of Londons Underground, the worlds first subway system, which turned 150 years old on Wednesday.

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I just got back from visiting my dad and stepmother in another state. Dad is elderly, and I know my time with him is limited. Apparently, his marriage is in a shambles and they are on the verge of divorce. He comes home only to sleep. The rest of the time he finds places to get away from her and her constant arguments. The time we were there was tense, unpleasant and, frankly, a waste of time and money. I wasnt able to spend more than five min-utes with Daddy without my stepmother trying to pick a fight with him. Have you any suggestions or advice? I just want to spend time with him in the time he has left. -DADDYS GIRL DOWN SOUTH DEAR DADDYS GIRL: Now that you have been in the war zone, the cat is out of the bag. Because your stepmother was such a distraction you had no quality time with your father, consider staying elsewhere and having him spend time with you away from the house. Alternatively, if hes able to travel, offer to send him a ticket to visit you and your husband for a few days or a week without her. Thats cheaper than plane fare for you and your husband to visit him. Contact your siblings and find out if your father plans to spend the rest of his limited time mar-ried to your stepmother, because the stress of the hostility in their household could shorten his life. If he plans to divorce her, one of the places where he should seek refuge is his lawyers office. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My fian-cee, Tara, has a problem with social boundaries. She was home-schooled most of her education and missed out on a social life. Recently, a male friend of mine quit talking to both of us because of her behav-ior. When I talked with him about it, he said Tara makes him uncomfortable. She doesnt understand where friendly joking stops and serious flirting starts. She gave him the impres-sion she wanted to start an affair, so he walked away. Tara has been open and upfront about everything. She doesnt lie. Its like she doesnt know any other way to interact with the opposite sex, and its spooking me before our wedding. I dont want to have to be my fiancees constant social monitor. What can I do to help her with this? Are there social classes for late bloomers? -FREAKED-OUT FIANCE IN OHIO DEAR FREAKED-OUT FIANCE: I dont blame you for being freaked out because Taras behavior must have been blatant for your friend to avoid both of you. My advice is to put your wedding on hold until you, a female rela-tive (or two) whom Tara respects and will listen to, or a counselor is able to make her understand the boundaries of socially appropriate behavior. If you proceed as things are, the next letter I receive from you may be from Freaked-Out Husband. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): An impulsive move will lead to a mistake that will be difficult to over-come. Concentrate on what you can do to help others. Anger, rejection or manipulation will not solve a work-related problem. Find a workable solution and proceed. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Dont get angry; get moving. You can have your way if you are diplomatic and responsible in the way you move forward and deal with others. ++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Do some legwork that will help you get a project you want to pursue off the ground. Greater prosperity will be yours if you focus on a service, product or talent you have to offer. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Pay more attention to your children, family or your lover. Sharing your creative ideas or taking an interest in an unusual lifestyle or even visiting an unfamiliar destination will lead to personal and professional progress. Love is in the stars. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Dont limit what you can accomplish because some-one puts demands on you. Focus on what will get you ahead. A change may be needed in the way you live your life or the people you share life with. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Enjoy unusual enter-tainment or friends who offer you something to think about. Motivation and inspiration will come from trying new things and meeting interesting people. Romance is high-lighted and a promise made will lead to a better, more accommodating life-style. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Domestic matters will escalate. Not everyone will be on your side. You are best to get out and partici-pate in an activity you find interesting and physically challenging. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Travel plans or getting involved in a community event will lead to new con-nections and the chance to learn or start something new. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take charge and make the first move. Reconnect with an old friend or revisit an old idea or goal. Make adjustments at home that are conducive to something you want to incorporate into your life. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Rethink your strategy and consider an unorthodox way to turn a negative into a positive. Using your imagination, expertise and diplomacy will pay off in the end by helping you avoid an impulsive mistake that will be hard to reverse. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Put your time to good use. Channel your energy wisely, and you will reach your goals. Focus on home, family and how you can make life better for everyone concerned. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Rethink your next move. Participate in a cause you feel pas-sionate about. Nurture a relationship you cherish. Problems with a pend-ing financial or medical situation will worsen if you show anger or emotion. A commitment will help you reach a decision. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Pop4 Court statistic.LGVJDPHZLWKD ball $%REEVH\WZLQ&RQVWHOODWLRQQHDU Scorpius 6WDUWWRPDNHD OLYLQJIURPVRPHWKLQJ ::,,PDULQH WKUHDW ,VUDHOLZHDSRQ:KDWVRPHJRJJOHV SURYLGH HUJV86$QHLJKERU5HSUHVHQWDWD FRVWXPHSDUW\ BBBPLQXWH,WPD\EHWLJKWO\ FRLOHG /HWXVSDUWBBBWKH VHDVRQRISDVVLRQIRUJHWXV
6D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JANUARY 13, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 6DLIFE By BRENDAN FARRINGTON Associated Press PORT ORANGE A framed photo of serial killer Aileen Wuornos sits on the bar at The Last Resort, the place where she had her last beer. Her photo is also on bottles of hot sauce and T-shirts sold there, while an airbrushed portrait lists the seven men she killed, along with her last words. At a nearby motel, guests often ask for the room where Wuornos stayed. Almost 22 years after her arrest and more than 10 years since her execu tion, the hitchhiking pros titute depicted by Charlize Theron in the 2003 movie Monster continues to fascinate the public. Some sympathize with her, saying the abuse she suffered as a child and later as an adult made her snap. Others are captivated by the idea of a female serial killer. Some who stop in at The Last Resort simply want to see the bar from the movie. Al Bulling, whos owned the tiny brick biker bar for 33 years and who appeared in Monster, says hes simply honoring her last wishes. She wanted to be remembered and keep the memory going, he said. Well, well keep it going for her. Michelle Forbes of New Orleans decided to visit The Last Resort after see ing the movie. She was always a character that really fascinated me, said Forbes. Forbes said the bar covered inside and out with graffiti is not the kind of place I would go under most circumstanc es. She waited in her car until a friend joined her, but once inside, she listened to Bulling and a bartender tell stories about Wuornos for an hour. They were really happy to talk about it. They were really nice. They made me feel bad for cowering in the car! Forbes said with a laugh, adding, I do think they were trying to keep things in her spirit. I think they were honoring her, and not just making a spectacle. Wuornos life story is as lurid as her crimes. She was raped and abused growing up in Michigan. Her father committed suicide in prison and her mother abandoned her. She began selling sex at an early age and classmates shunned her. Her grand parents kicked her out at age 15 and she hitchhiked out of Michigan, eventually ending up in Florida, where she survived selling sex on the highways. She claimed she killed her first victim in self-defense after he raped her. A burly bartender at The Last Resort who goes only by the name of Cannonball was working there the eve ning of Jan. 19, 1991, when Wuornos was arrested at the bar. Cannonball, who played himself in Monster, has told the story countless times. Ive been asked some of the stupidest questions, he said. Did she act like a serial killer? Well hell, I dont know. Ive never seen one. I dont know what they act like. And one guy asked me, Well, were you scared of her? I aint never been scared of nobody. Wuornos wasnt a regu lar customer, just someone who came in now and then, probably while hitchhik ing back to what was then called the Fairview Motel, where she shared a room with her girlfriend, Tyria Moore. Cannonball said he only knew her name because she introduced herself. When they first come in she goes My name is Lee and this is my girl friend Ty and were gay. And Im, Well my names Cannonball and I dont care. Pay for what you get, dont cause me no grief and Ill treat you square. I dont care what anybody is, Cannonball said. The Last Resort is a popular biker bar even without the Wuornos con nection. Hank Williams Jr. mentioned the bar in the song Daytona Nights and some regulars have had their ashes scattered outside, beneath a live oak with battered Japanese motorcycles hanging from the limbs. Still, Bulling is not shy about promoting the Wuornos story. The bars slogan is Home of ice cold beer and killer women, and he sold the hot sauce on eBay until the site forced him to stop, saying he was profiting from a serial killer. Customers like to pose with the framed photo of Wuornos on the bar, and theres also a framed and signed Monster movie poster. T-shirts for sale show a picture of Wuornos being arrested, and the Crazed Killer Hot Sauce lists her execution date under a photo that makes her look crazy. The label reads, WARNING!! This Hot Sauce could drive you insane, or at least off on some murderous rampage. Aileen liked it and look what it did to her. Wuornos childhood friend, Dawn Botkins, who exchanged thousands of letters with Wuornos while she was on death row, is upset by all this. She says Bulling is just using the situation that Aileen just happened to be there and all of a sudden hes on TV saying, Yup, this was her hang out. No it wasnt. She just happened to be there that night. Serial killer Wuornos still a draw for bar Curious visitors attracted to place she was arrested. ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTOS Airbush artist Ted E. Bear sits in front of a portrait she painted of serial killer Aileen Wuronos at The Last Resort Bar in Port Orange. Almost 22 years after Wuornos was arrested at The Last Resort, the curious still come to the place where she had her last drink. TRAVEL FLORIDA ASSOCIATED PRESS Tourists could one day view the Forsythe Park fountain and other sites in Savannah, Ga., from double-decker buses. Savannah debates double-decker buses for tourists By RUSS BYNUM Associated Press SAVANNAH, Ga. A proposal to put doubledecker tour buses on the streets of Savannahs his toric district has residents rallying to bring the plans to a screeching halt, with crit ics fearing the buses would hit ancient oak limbs and give sightseers a peeping Toms view into Victorian homes. Two Boston business men are lobbying Savannah City Hall to end a 17-year prohibition on double-deck er buses in the coastal citys downtown historic district, which draws 12 million visitors a year. Savannahs Downtown Neighborhood Association is urging offi cials to deny the request. Opponents say the buses, which would have passen ger seats on an open-air top, could run into low-hanging branches along the edges of Savannahs manicured squares. And they complain the buses elevated views would enable tourists to peer over garden walls and possibly into second-floor windows of private homes. What this company is asking us to do is to change our rules so we can be more like everywhere else, when what draws people to Savannah is that were not like anywhere else, said Bob McAlister, who lives in an 1853 row house on Gordon Street in the heart of downtown. The dou ble-decker buses threaten Savannahs special ambi ence, its livability. Its not Colonial Williamsburg. Its not New York. Steve Caplan and Tom OConnor, the Boston inves tors, argue they shouldnt be kept out of the citys lucrative tourism market worth $2 billion in 2011 because of a blanket ban. The partners say theyre having four buses built to custom specs in England. While they would hold 75 passengers, double the capacity of the tour trolleys Savannah is used to, the buses would stand 12 feet tall. Thats a foot below the minimum clearance the city requires for maintain ing its tree canopy, though residents insist some branches hang lower. Julie Wade, a Savannah attorney hired by the busi ness partners, said con cerns about privacy were overblown. ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTOS One of the products at the Last Resort bar in Port Orange is Crazed Killer Hot Sauce with an image of serial killer Aileen Wuronos on the label.
