By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comLake City children in the Early Head Start program have a permanent place to stay after the City Council on Monday donated land near Richardson Gym to Suwannee Valley Community Coordinated Child Care. The nonprofit organization has been using the land at 878 NE Jackson Ave. since the spring of 2000, when it agreed to lease the land for $1 a year for 10 years. The organi-zation invested $500,000 in facilities fund-ed by the federal governments Head Start program. When the lease expired, SV4Cs and the city continued the terms of the lease on a month-to-month basis. Michele Ward, executive director of SV4Cs, said due to the large federal investment, she requested the city to convey the title of the property to SV4Cs for the life of the program, which council agreed to do at its meeting Monday evening. The organization serves 494 children and their families through Head Start and Early Head Start in Columbia, Hamilton, Lafayette and Suwannee counties, and employees 154 people at 11 centers with 41 classrooms across the four counties. Currently, the program provides child care services for 232 low-income families in Columbia County. In the county, there are two Head Start centers, one each in Fort White and Lake City and one Early Head Start program in Lake City.

Gayle McClintock Smith, 60, died Feb. 22 at Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville, LCPD said Monday. Smith had been hospitalized there since the Feb. 6 wreck. Smiths body has been sent to the medical examiners office to determine a cause of death, said Steve Shaw, LCPD public information officer. The wreck occurred at 3:16 p.m. at the intersection of U.S. 41 and State Road 47. According to LCPD reports, Smith was driving a 2012 Nissan Altima head-ed south on U.S. 41. A 2012 Buick sedan driven by Gerald Keen, 79, of 251 SW Pilots Way, was making a left turn onto U.S. 41 when it was struck by Smiths vehicle. Keen was traveling with Rachel Genese Keen, 76, of the same address. Gerald Keen told authorities that the traffic light was green before he pro-ceeded though the intersection.

Woman dies of injuries suffered in Feb. 6 crash Panel rejects Medicaid expansionBy JIM SAUNDERSThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Refusing to go along with Republican Gov. Rick Scott and angering Democrats, a House select committee Monday opposed a major expansion of the Medicaid program under the fed-eral Affordable Care Act. The 10-5 vote, along party lines, was the first time lawmakers have taken a formal stance on the highly controversial Medicaid expansion as this years legislative session prepares to start and signaled that House Republicans are dug in against the idea. Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, quickly issued a statement saying the expansion would not be in the states best interest. Weatherford and Republicans on the select committee ques-tioned whether the federal gov-ernment would be able to make good in the coming years on its promise to pay the vast majority of costs of expanding Medicaid eligibility to hundreds of thousands of additional Floridians. Can anybody honestly say they have a clear, decisive view of what the federal governments budget picture is going to look like for the rest of this year, let alone for a decade? asked Rep. Matt Hudson, R-Naples. Think about that. The federal govern-ment has had a challenge almost every single day over the last six months. And yet somehow we are to believe that they will be rock-solid, nothing will change for a decade. But the top Democrat on the panel, Rep. Elaine Schwartz of Hollywood, accused the Republicans of being shortsighted and motivated by ideol-ogy as they voted against a key part of the federal health law GOP lawmakers say plan not in best interest of state.

AROUND FLORIDA Casey Anthony out of seclusion TAMPA Casey Anthony has come out of seclusion for a meeting with the creditors in her bankruptcy case in Tampa. Dressed all in black, Anthony arrived with her attorney several hours early for the bankruptcy meeting Monday. She did not address the media. Anthony filed for bankruptcy in Florida in late January, claiming about $1,000 in assets and $792,000 in liabilities. Court papers list Anthony as unemployed, with no recent income. Anthony has not made any public appearances since she left jail after being acquitted in 2011 of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. The bankruptcy filing came on the same day that a Florida appellate court set aside two of the four convictions she faced for lying to detectives during the investigation into her missing daughter.2 die when car hits cruiser FORT MYERS The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating after two peo-ple were killed when their car collided with a Lee County sheriffs cruiser that was responding to a 911 call. FHP identities the victims as 84-year-old John Steffen and 77-year-old Marilyn Steffen. The two lived in Florida part time and also in Pandora, Ohio. The FHP report says the cruisers emergency lights were on Sunday morning as the deputy was on his way to respond to the 911 call. The car driven by John Steffen crashed into the side of the cruiser, causing it to spin and sending the passenger car over several lanes. The FHP report says the Steffens were wearing their seat belts. The depu-ty was taken to the hospi-tal with minor injuries.10 homes burned in forest fire ALTOONA Authorities say 10 homes are among two dozen structures burned by a brush fire in the Ocala National Forest. U.S., state and Marion County firefighters have been working to contain the blaze since Saturday over an area more than 1,900 acres wide. Authorities say the fire is about 80 percent con-tained. No injuries have been reported. Marion County Fire Rescue spokeswoman Jessica Greene says the burned structures include homes, garages, sheds and other small buildings in a subdivision within the national forest. Greene says more than 100 other homes in the forest and along Lake George have been saved. District Ranger Mike Herrin of the Ocala National Forest says human activity is suspect-ed as the cause of the fire. About 120 firefighters were working Monday to extinguish the fire.Researchers tag great white shark JACKSONVILLE Researchers say they have tagged and released a great white shark off the coast of Jacksonville. Scientists from the group Ocearch said they caught the one-ton female Sunday afternoon near the Mayport Naval Station. Researchers took blood and tissue samples from the shark, which they named Lydia. They also installed four tracking devices meant to log the sharks travels through satellites and undersea acoustic monitoring. The blood and tissue samples will be used for genetic analysis that can help compare shark popu-lations in the western and eastern Atlantic. Walters back at The ViewNEW YORK B arbara Walters is back. Sidelined for six weeks by chickenpox and a con-cussion, Walters returned to ABCs The View on Monday. She got a thunderous welcome from the studio audience and co-panelists Sherri Shepherd, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Joy Behar, as well as well-wishers Regis Philbin and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who stopped by. After a lot of scratching and rest, I am fine and I am healthy, the 83-year-old Walters declared. Lifting her bangs, she pointed on her forehead to the only visible signs of her ordeal: a single chickenpox bump and a tiny scar from her fall. Walters was hospitalized Jan. 19 after fainting and hitting her head on a marble floor at a party in Washington. She suffered a concus-sion and got several stitches. She had chickenpox and a fever at the time but didnt realize it. The likely cause? Hugging a well-known actor who shall be nameless earlier in January, she said. It turned out he had shin-gles. If you have never had chickenpox and Walters never had you can get it from someone with shingles, she told viewers. Walters, looking rested and more than ready to be back, joked that people say I should have my head examined. I DID have my head examined, and I am fine.FBI releases its records on Whitney Houston LOS ANGELES The FBI has released its files on a trio of inves-tigations the agency conducted on behalf of Whitney Houston. The records released Monday show the agency conducted one investigation into an alleged extortion attempt in 1992, but agents and prosecu-tors determined no crime occurred. Agents also found no evidence of crimi-nal threats to the singer in fan mail that was sent to the FBI for investigation in 1988 and 1999. The 128-page file covers the height of the Grammy-winning sing-ers popularity but does not contain any new personal details. Records on the FBIs extortion investigation in which Houston was interviewed at the New Jersey offic-es of her management company are heavily redacted. Houston drowned in a hotel bathtub on the eve of the 2012 Grammy Awards. Founder of Motown group The Miracles dies SOUTHFIELD, Mich. Bobby Rogers, a founding member of Motown group The Miracles and a songwriting collabo-rator with Smokey Robinson, died Sunday at his subur-ban Detroit home. He was 73. Motown Museum board member Allen Rawls said Rogers died about 6 a.m. in Southfield. Rogers had been ill for several years. Rogers formed the group in 1956 with cousin Claudette Rogers, Pete Moore, Ronnie White and Robinson. Their hits included Shop Around, Youve Really Got a Hold on Me and The Tracks of My Tears.

according to the Columbia County Property Appraiser land value report. The programs target lowincome families, and pro vide services to children ranging in age from birth to 5 years old. On an already tight bud get, the organization will suffer cuts of at least 5 percent for the remainder of this fiscal year due to the ongoing budget dispute between President Barack Obama and Congress, Ward said. She said any cuts would be detrimental to the program, and shes looking at ideas to make sure services are kept at a high level. Our goal is to provide the highest quality servic es possible to the children and families, she said.

With the nine-week session opening Tuesday, the pair agree that lawmakers need to focus on important issues like the budget, education, health care, the proposed expansion of Medicaid, proper ty insurance and election reform and not waste time on the inconsequential, which can burden the process. Everybodys making sacrifices to be here, said Weatherford, the second-young est speaker in state history. Were not up there to mess around. Were here to make a difference. The session opens in the shadow of the federal battle over budget cuts between Congress and President Barack Obama, a squabble that seems to concern Gaetz more than Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel. Im not prepared to put on rose-colored glasses about the budget, Gaetz said. Im certainly not prepared to talk about extra money, any extra money, until we see what happens in Washington with sequester. Gaetz, a Niceville Republican, cited a story about when the Legislature makes a law its often a joke. The problem is when the Legislature makes a joke, its the law. We make the jokes, Gaetz conceded. We pass bills that we dont need to pass. Republican and Democratic leaders are already questioning some of Gov. Rick Scotts priorities in his $74.2 billion bud get proposal, including his push to offer a $2,500 across-the-board pay raise to school teachers and a one-time bonus for state employees. Gaetz and Weatherford have comfortable Republican majorities to help with their goals. The GOP has a 2614 advantage in the Senate and 76-44 in the House, although Democratic gains in November have eliminated the two-thirds majority the GOP had in both houses. Scott has reversed his stance in recent weeks on expanding voting opportunities, the expansion of Medicaid and on pay increases for teachers and state workers. His change of heart on the Medicaid issue received a chilly reception by legislative leaders. I am personally skeptical that this inflex ible law will improve the quality of health care in our state and ensure our long-term financial stability, Weatherford said. Gaetz, who said he supports Scotts can didacy for re-election next year, differs with the governor on Medicaid expansion and some spending priorities. I think its way too early to start talking about extra money, Gaetz said, again refer ring to the budget battle in Washington. Politics, naturally, are always center-stage here, although the main characters are new on the legislative front for the next two sessions. Scott has already begun that midterm pivot on several issues with an eye on boosting his lagging poll numbers with his 2014 re-election bid looming. The governor and lawmakers appear set to reverse the changes to the states elections law in 2011 when they approved a measure to reduce early voting days and tougher registration requirements a move that some saw as an effort to make it more difficult for President Barack Obama to carry the state a second time. Obama still won. A bill is already under way with Scotts blessings to restore more early-vot ing days. And while there is plenty of debate over the state-backed Citizens Property Insurance Corp. and the role it should serve, its not the only insurance issue that could be dis cussed. There is also the fraud-plagued no-fault vehicle insurance and the solvency of the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund or CAT fund. Lawmakers are likely to go slowly on most of them this session. Weatherford believes Citizens is making progress, Gaetz wants to hold off a year before making any final decisions on the states personal injury protection, or PIP, laws and everyone is hoping that Florida can get through an eighth straight year without a major hurricane. We always have insurance issues, said Sam Miller, executive vice president of the Florida Insurance Council, an industry group. This year they may be more than there usually are. By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org LIVE OAK State health officials are cautioning residents in North Florida to avoid the Withlacoochee and Suwannee rivers due to possible wastewa ter contamination. However, local officials say the Suwannee River in Columbia County will not be impacted by the contamination. The Florida Department of Health issued the advi sory Saturday for residents in the counties surround ing the Withlacoochee and Suwannee rivers. Officials say the Withlacoochee Water Pollution Control Plant in Valdosta, Ga., overflowed into the Withlacoochee River, which flows south into the Suwannee River. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is scheduled to collect water sam ples and results from the tests will be available next week. Until then, people are urged to avoid contact with both riv ers in Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Levy, Madison and Suwannee counties. The warning that the DOH has issued will not affect Columbia County, Mark Lander, administrator of the Columbia and Hamilton counties health departments, said. Where the Withlacoochee River enters the Suwannee River is south of Columbia Countys border. It enters pretty close to Hamilton and Suwannee County. The area of the Suwannee River in north ern Columbia County will not be affected because its upstream from where the discharge will enter the Suwannee River. Lander said FDOH advised local health department officials last week that a wastewater sys tem in Georgia experienced some issues due to flooding where they had to shut down some of their controls at the wastewater plant, allowing an undetermined amount of raw sewage to be dis charged into the Withlacoochee River. Its unclear what the total dis charge was, Lander said. We dont have that information. Health officials warn that water contaminated by wastewater can lead to health hazards in humans. The DOH is urging residents who have been in contact with either of the rivers to wash their hands thoroughly before eating or drinking. Children and the elderly, as well as people with depressed immune systems, are particularly vulnerable to disease, so every precaution should be taken to avoid the river water. The DEP is out doing water sampling along the river to do a contamination count, like a fecal contamination, to determine if that discharge has impacted river, Lander said. We dont know if its even impacted it yet. Thats a lot of water thats flowing down and even with the pollution flowing in it, it could be diluted to a point where its not a health impact. The Associated Press contrib uted to this story. Ga. sewage plant problem contaminates area rivers DEATH: Continued From Page 1A told authorities that Smiths vehicle ran the traffic light and crashed into the left drivers side of the Keens vehicle, spinning it around. Smiths vehicle received heavy damage to the front. The Keens vehicle received disabling damage to the left-front side and right-rear. The Keens were taken to the hospital by ambulance. Smith was extricated from the vehicle and taken to Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Smith was at fault for the crash, LCPD reports said. COUNCIL: Land transferred to Head Start agency Continued From Page 1A Jeb Bush opposes citizenship for illegals Associated Press WASHINGTON Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush writes in a new book that the nation needs to completely overhaul its immigration policies but cautions against providing a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants, a position that puts him at odds with some reformers within his own party. In Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution, Bush writes that the immigration debate holds serious consequenc es for the nation and mem bers of his Republican party, calling fellow Republicans remarkably tone-deaf when it comes to courting Hispanic voters to the extent they court them at all. If the GOP fails to change, he says, the influence of Hispanic voters will doom the partys future. Bush writes that law makers should create a path to legal status for undocumented immi grants who live in the U.S. and agree to plead guilty to a crime of illegal entry. But unlike a bipartisan Senate proposal pushed by fellow Florida Republican Marco Rubio Bush says tougher border security should not be a prerequi site and a pathway to legal status should not include citizenship for those who entered illegally as adults. Republicans unveil funding measure Associated Press WASHINGTON Republicans controlling the House moved Monday to ease a crunch in Pentagon readi ness while limiting the pain felt by such agencies as the FBI and the Border Patrol from the across-theboard spending cuts that are just starting to take effect. The effort is part of a huge spend ing measure that would fund dayto-day federal operations through September and head off a poten tial government shutdown later this month. The measure would leave in place automatic cuts of 5 percent to domes tic agencies and 7.8 percent to the Pentagon ordered by President Barack Obama Friday night after months of battling with Republicans over the budget. But the House Republicans legislation would award the Defense and Veterans Affairs departments their detailed 2013 bud gets giving those agencies more flexibility on where money is spent, while other agencies would be frozen at 2012 levels and then bear the across-the-board cuts. The impact of the new cuts was proving slow to reach the broader public as Obama convened the first Cabinet meeting of his second term to discuss next steps. The Pentagon did say it would fur lough thousands of military school teachers around the world.
To the Editor:Im writing in regards to the Scarborough Cemetery at the cor-ner of Baya and Camp Street. This is an old cemetery created before 1840 and has several pioneers buried there. Some of the graves have been destroyed. The cemetery is hardly notice-able. There is a marker for the Scarborough family, which provided the plot for the cemetery. (M.M. Scarborough, attorney.) Some familiar names buried there are Silas Niblack (judge, attorney, senator, president of the Florida Atlantic and Gulf Railroad), and Frank DeFarro (lawyer). Some other people buried there are Davis, Young, Henderson, Appell, Barfield, Miller, Bush and Griffin. Some considerate person has just mowed it after years of neglect, but it could use an attractive sign. The Lake City pioneers need to be honored by us and we could do this by maintaining the cemetery and furnishing a sign. Think about it, Lake Citians.Harold Hill MurphyLake City M ost of us enjoy reading about little-known facts. Well, Ive come up with some facts that are so little-known, theyre actually unknown. That means theyre not facts, only fiction. Your assignment, if you decide to accept it, is to determine which of the following are facts accord-ing to the best-selling book Uncle Johns Bathroom Reader and other reliable sources and which ones are figments of my twisted imagina-tion. Answers follow the questions: 1. Ketchup once was sold as a medicine. 2. The rat has the pleasing gaminess of squirrel or rabbit when deep-fried in coconut oil. 3. A man named Toothless Icabod Higgins discovered in 1236 that its virtually impossible to sneeze with your eyes open. 4. Before 1800, shoes for the right and left foot were interchangeable. 5. Waiters in Germany were the first to start telling customers their names after one particular restau-rant doubled its price for German potato salad. 6. Leonardo da Vinci invented an alarm clock. 7. John David Dormer was the first man to add a dormer onto the roof of his house. 8. Arnold Schwarzenegger said, No man is great if he thinks he is. 9. Coffee has absolutely no nutritional value. 10. Thomas Edison invented the light bulb. ANSWERS:1. True. I dont know what it was good for, but my son-in-law ought to be cured of it. 2. True. And who, pray tell, was the first to discover that delectable fact? 3. False. Icabod was not the discoverer, but he did knock out four teeth trying to watch himself sneeze. 4. True. And for little boys and girls learning to put them on, shoes are still interchangeable. 5. False. Although it could be true. Everyone must personalize his service to justify increased prices. For cheaper meals, always choose a restaurant whose waiters dont iden-tify themselves. 6. True. Da Vinci invented an alarm clock that woke the sleeper by gently rubbing his feet. It was better, he found, than a ball-peen hammer to the head. 7. False. Dormer built only an escape hatch on his roof to get away from his nagging wife. 8. False. Will Rogers said that. Schwarzenegger said, Ive never seen that woman in my life. 9. True. But dont tell that to anyone before hes had his first cup in the morning. 10. False. Joseph Swan was the inventor in 1878. You could say it was Humphry Davy about 1809. Both deserve credit. But it was Edison who spent night after night perfecting the invention. Finally, his wife said, Tom, I wish youd turn off that light and come to bed. So how did you do? Give yourself 10 points for each correct answer. If you made 100, you should be writing this column, not me. Better yet, you may need therapy. If you missed two or more, youre prob-ably normal. Thanks for indulging me.

We believe strong newspapers build strong communities Newspapers get things done! Our primary goal is to publish distinguished and profitable community-oriented newspapers. This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman I t never pays to be optimistic about the Florida Legislature. You can count on a cagy lobbyist or conniving lawmaker to always be plotting some mischief or worse. In recent years legislators nearly slipped through a scheme to permit oil drilling immediately off Florida beaches without scrutiny. They dis-mantled the planning laws that protected taxpayers from costly haphazard development. Last year, they slashed higher education funding and then created a new university without an iota of evidence it was needed. Yet, despite such episodes, there is some cause for hope as the session begins today in Tallahassee. House Speaker Will Weatherford of Pasco County and Senate President Don Gaetz of the Panhandle are able leaders, respectful of opposing views but capable of keeping proceedings on track. This contrasts markedly to their predecessors, who presided over messy sessions where it appeared a few bullying lawmakers and favored specials inter-ests called the shots. Moreover, this year lawmakers will enjoy a budget surplus and wont have to spend the majority of the session struggling to plug a massive budget shortfall, as theyve had to do the last five or so years. Gov. Rick Scott has proposed a sensible budget that invests strategically and cuts selectively. It wont make it through the session intact. No governors budget does. But Weatherford and Gaetz similarly favor a lean, business-friendly government but understand the importance of investing for the future, particularly in education. It is notable that a priority for both Weatherford and Gaetz is ethics reform, which the Legislature has consistently rejected despite a series of scandals.... Passage of meaningful ethics reform would make this session memorable. But there are other impor-tant issues at stake. We strongly support Weatherfords goal of eventually transitioning state workers to a 401K-like retire-ment plan and ridding the state of pension obliga-tions that are not sustainable. It may not be resolved this session, but the state needs to take steps to avoid what will ultimately be a financial crisis.... Both the speaker and president want to invest more in K-12 and higher education, but are not enthusiastic about Scotts plan to give all public school teachers a $2,500 raise. Weatherford and Gaetz want the money to go toward merit raises. Floridas teachers average pay of $46,000 is $10,000 below the national average and ranks 46th in the nation, so we agree with Scott that the base pay needs to be increased. But a compromise that directs a portion of that $2,500 to merit pay would be reasonable.... [Regardless of how the session turns out,] we do have hope this Legislature will ... execute a serious agenda with less theatrics and special favors than usual.

The law, which funds programs to help prosecute sexual assault and domestic abuse cases, was not only extended for five years but expand-ed to include gays, lesbians, bisexu-als and the transgendered. The law is funded at nearly $660 million a year for the next five years, 17 percent less than the last time it was reauthorized but still a healthy show of support in a time of budget austerity. The House Republicans might have been content to see the Violence Against Women Act sit in limbo as another example of liberal meddling in areas traditionally state and local responsibilities but the November election changed all that. Democrats took 55 percent of the female vote and Mitt Romney trailed President Barack Obama among women by 11 percentage points. And additional pressure was put on the House when the Senate in January passed the bill with every Democrat, every woman and over half the Republicans voting for it. House GOP leader Eric Cantor introduced a compromise measure, taking into account the objections of Republican conservatives, but it was defeated, 166 to 257. The House then passed the Senate version, 286 to 138, with 87 Republicans voting for it and 138 against. This did not further endear House Speaker John Boehner to the more hard-core members of his caucus because it was the third time since December that the speaker had allowed legislation to move -the other two were the fiscal cliff bill and Hurricane Sandy relief -that did not have the support of a majority of his Republicans. Passage of the bill is being hailed as a victory for Obama and the Democrats, but it is also a victory for Boehner and the cooler, wiser and politically better attuned mem-bers of the House GOP leadership, who saw no point in further alienat-ing female voters.

METH: Five jailed on drug charges Continued From Page 1Awith possession of listed chemicals, possession of methamphetamine and manufacture of meth-amphetamine. Each was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $51,000 bond. A second meth bust occurred Sunday night. A Lake County man and a Union County woman face multiple drug-related charges after Columbia County sheriffs deputies discovered the two were allegedly making metham-phetamine in their hotel room. Jason Scott Gibbs, 38, of Astatula, was charged with two counts manufac-ture of methamphetamine, trafficking methamphet-amine, possession of drug equipment and possession of drugs. Gibbs was also arrested on an out-of-coun-ty warrant. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $255,500 bond. Misty Dawn LaneAlyousef, 41, Lake Butler, was charged with manufac-ture of methamphetamine, trafficking in methamphet-amine, possession of drug equipment and possession of drugs. She was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $180,000 bond. According to sheriffs reports, about 10:30 p.m. Sunday, deputies Scott Staley, Cpl. Matt Grinstead and Sgt. Pete Spurlock were walk-ing in the area of the Columbia Hotel at 1949 E. Duval St. during an investiga-tion and as they approa-ched the property on foot noticed an odor con-sistent with the manu-facture of metham-phetamine. They tracked the odor to an open win-dow on the back side of the hotel and approached and looked in. Spurlock reportedly saw a man, later identified as Gibbs, carrying into the bathroom a device com-monly associated with the manufacture of metham-phetamine. Lane-Alyousef reportedly spotted Spurlock at the window and Spurlock yelled commands for both Lane-Alyousef and Gibbs to open the front door of their motel room and surrender. Gibbs and Lane-Alyousef were taken into custody without incident, reports said. Authorities secured a search warrant and searched the premises. The search revealed sev-eral containers of products used in the manufacture of methamphetamine and 50 grams of methamphet-amine. Authorities also reportedly found several miscellaneous schedule 2 pills, including four mor-phine pills, one oxycodone pill and three hydrocodone pills. A second clandestine methamphetamine labora-tory was seized by sheriffs office deputies following a traffic stop about 30 min-utes later. Deputy Joshua Latimer conducted a traffic stop for an expired tag on a vehicle at the intersection of Southwest Pinemount Road and Deputy Jeff Davis Lane. Authorities report-edly found a backpack in the car that contained the necessary materials and chemicals to produce meth-amphetamine. The suspect, Keith David Wheeldon, was taken into custody without inci-dent. Wheeldon had been released from the Columbia County Detention Facility in February on bond stem-ming from an arrest in December for allegedly manufacturing metham-phetamine. Wheeldon, 32, 3708 NW Huntsboro St., was charged with possession of listed chemicals and manufacture of methamphetamine. HOUSE: Panel rejects Medaid plan Continued From Page 1Abetter known as Obamacare. Democrats rejected the notion that the federal govern-ment would not pay for the expansion. This is a no-brainer, said House Minority Leader Perry Thurston, D-Plantation. This (the vote against expan-sion) is the wrong decision to make. Weatherford and select committee Chairman Richard Corcoran, R-Land O Lakes, had already said they were skepti-cal of the expansion, so Mondays vote was not a big surprise. But with the 60-day leg-islative session starting Tuesday, it added to the uncertainty about whether Scott and both chambers of the GOP-controlled Legislature will be able to reach agree-ment on the issue. A Senate select committee postponed a meeting, scheduled for Monday afternoon, that was expected to include discussion about moving forward with the Medicaid expansion. Chairman Joe Negron, R-Stuart, said he had asked Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, for additional time for members to consider the issue and that he expected the committee to make a recommendation early in the session. Its more important to get it right than to get it done quickly, he said. Florida Republicans leaders have long opposed the Affordable Care Act, which Obama and congressional Democrats approved in March 2010. But Scott drew national attention last month when he supported a plan to go along with the Medicaid expansion for three years and then revisit the issue. The federal government has promised to pay 100 percent of the expansion costs during the first three years and then gradually scale back its share to 90 percent in 2020, with the state responsible for the remainder. The expansion would make coverage available to people whose incomes are up to 138 percent of the feder-al poverty level, including childless adults --a group that is now largely ineligible in Floridas Medicaid system. State economist Amy Baker presented a report Monday that estimated near-ly 869,000 people would be part of the Medicaid expansion, though many of those would be shifted into the program from other types of coverage. As an exam-ple, children who are currently eligible for a program that offers subsidized health insurance to working families would be shifted into Medicaid if they met the new income qualifications. The House, Senate and Scott administration have already rejected another part of the Affordable Care Act that could have involved the state running a health-insur-ance exchange, an online marketplace where people can shop for coverage. In doing so, the state will default to the fed-eral government running the exchange in Florida. But the Medicaid expansion issue has been more controversial and, depending how the Senate wants to handle it, could continue looming throughout the legisla-tive session. While conservative groups such as the James Madison Institute oppose the expansion, other groups such as the Florida Hospital Association are lob-bying heavily for it. Opponents of the expansion Monday raised issues such as whether Floridas health-care industry would have an ade-quate workforce to handle a massive influx of new Medicaid beneficiaries. Also, they repeatedly returned to the argument that the state cannot rely on the federal govern-ment and that Florida might get stuck with paying a large amount of the Medicaid expansion costs in the future. This is a free lunch, and after three years, whats the guarantee that theyre (the federal government) going to be able to pay? asked Rep. Ken Roberson, R-Punta Gorda. But after the meeting, Thurston said providing Medicaid coverage would help save peoples lives and called the Republicans opposition morally reprehensible. Lane-Alyousef Gibbs Wheeldon
Columbia City Elementary SchoolBattle of the brainsColumbia County holds an academic competition for 5th grade students in May of every year. This competition is sponsored by the Kiwanis. Each school selects a team of four students. CCE held try outs recently. Each 5th grader who want-ed to try out was given a written test. The top students were then divided into groups to compete against each other using the buzzers. The top students were: Holden Case, Caley Williams, Delaney Williams, Emmett Philpot, Andrew Faul, Tucker Boggs, Aaron Byrne, Nicholas Harnen and Ander Adams.

Associated PressSPOKANE, Wash. The to-do list for the Gonzaga basketball team got shorter Monday: For the first time, the Zags were ranked No. 1 in The Associated Press Top 25 poll. Sweet, but it may get bumpier from there. Next: Avoiding the potholes that have stopped every other No. 1 this sea-son, then finding a way to the Final Four. We dont believe there is any jinx, assistant coach Tommy Lloyd said, subbing for coach Mark Few, who was said to be fly fishing and unavailable for com-ment. Obviously, its a dream for us, the ultimate accomplishment. Florida dropped from No. 8 to 11th after a loss st Tennessee on Feb. 26, despite a convincing home win over Alabama on Saturday. Miami fell from Mo. 2 to No. 6 after its loss at Duke on Saturday. Staying No. 1 has been tough this season, with Gonzaga the fifth school to hold the spot after replacing Indiana this week. The oth-ers were Duke, Louisville and Michigan. Gonzaga, is a small Jesuit school in Spokane. It has the best record in Division I at 29-2 following week-end wins against BYU and Portland. The Hoosiers, beaten by Minnesota last week, dropped to No. 2. Were not necessarily in pursuit of a ranking, Lloyd said. Were trying to get to the NCAA tournament. When thats over, as coach-es we can look back and realize what an accomplish-ment it is and how difficult it is. The Zags are the 57th school to be ranked No. 1 since the AP poll began in January 1949. The school is considered a mid-major and reached No. 2 for the first time last week. Now it will play for the first time at No. 1 on Saturday night in the West Coast Conference semifinals. By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comTrack teams from Columbia High and Fort White High participated in the UNF Spring Break Open in Jacksonville on Friday. All classifications competed against each other in the pre-state meet. Athletes from both schools that excelled last year seem poised to repeat their success. Fort Whites Sitia Martinez was 2012 district champion in the 100 meters, 200 meters and 300-meter hurdles. She qualified for state in the 100 and the 300 hurdles. At the UNF meet, Martinez placed fifth in the 100 meters, fourth in the 200 meters and 400 meters, and third in the hurdles. Columbias 4x100 relay team of Cornelius Montgomery, Rakeem Battle, Zedrick Woods and Trey Marshall, which quali-fied for state last year, placed third at the UNF meet. Marshall was fifth in the 100 meters and Montgomery was 10th. In the 200 meters, Woods placed 11th and Montgomery was 13th. J.T. Bradley placed fourth in the high jump, clear-ing 6-2. Bradley was 18th in the 110-meter hurdles. Shaykheim Griffin was 15th in the 400 meters. Columbias Emma Tucker, who was district runner-up in cross country, placed sixth in the 800 meters. Running the third leg, she joined with Samantha Ziegaus, Michaelle Charlotin and Nicole Morse to place sev-enth in the distance medley. Delanie Redmond, Abby Williams, Ziegaus and Tucker placed 10th in the 4x400 relay. Redmond, Morse, Ashley Jones and Ziegaus placed 11th in the 4x800 relay.

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are expecting our first child (a boy) later this year. How do I teach my son to enjoy solitude and his own company? I want my little one to have loving friends, but also periods of quiet, reflec-tive fun time by himself. My husband and I grew up with siblings, but he hates solitude while I find lots of activities to do by myself. I am never lonely. Whats the difference between solitude and loneliness? -SOLITARY WOMAN IN OTTAWA, CANADA DEAR SOLITARY WOMAN: The difference between solitude and lone-liness depends on how an individual handles being alone. Some people find silence threatening, while others -like yourself -need it to recharge their batteries. For your son to be at ease when hes alone, ration his television time. Read to him so hell learn to appreciate the entertain-ment books provide. Give him items to play with that foster creativity, such as clay, paints and paper, a cardboard box he can pretend is a playhouse or a spaceship. If hes encour-aged to use it, his imagina-tion will flourish. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My father-in-law, Earl, is an alcoholic and an avid gun enthusiast. He owns many weapons; I dont know the exact number. He has been accumulating ammu-nition at an accelerated rate because hes afraid that large clips will soon be banned. He drinks to excess and becomes bel-ligerent and angry when drunk. Last summer, during one of his moments of inebriation, he shot a gun into the air as a surprise to the eight family mem-bers who were sitting within two to 10 feet of him. He takes pride in the fact that his guns are kept loaded, as what good is an unloaded gun? On two separate occasions, I know for a fact that a loaded gun was found unsecured in his home. When my husband and I travel with our children, ages 7, 5 and 4, to visit his family, we stay in Earls home. I feel the combina-tion of alcohol and loaded, unsecure guns is not safe for my children. I have suggested to my husband that we stay in a hotel dur-ing our visits from now on. The problem is, my husband is unable to stand up to his father. He told me that when he tried talking to him about his concerns, Earl called him a wimp. Please tell me how to get through to my hus-band. -GUN-SHY IN SOUTH CAROLINA DEAR GUN-SHY: Im sorry to say that your father-in-law may have your husband pegged accurately. A man who would allow his small chil-dren to stay in the home of an alcoholic who keeps unsecured, loaded weap-ons around IS a wimp. There are responsible gun owners, and there are indi-viduals like your alcohol-soaked in-law, who seem to have never learned that a bullet fired into the air must fall down somewhere and could kill or injure someone. Your husband doesnt have to stand up to his father. All he has to do is make a hotel reservation and be sure the children spend no unsupervised time with Grandpa. To do anything less is child endangerment. Because your husband is unwill-ing to be the strong one, the responsibility for your childrens lives now falls to you. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Check your options before making a hasty move that might slow you down. You have more choices than you realize. Put more thought into what you have to offer and how you can make your skills more attractive and diverse. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Help a friend or make contributions to a cause you believe in. Your inter-actions with others will win you favors and friendships. Hands-on help rather than making a donation will bring you far higher rewards in the end. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Slow down until you fully understand the sig-nals you are receiving. Expect to face deception from someone you feel attached to emotionally. Dont be fooled by some-ones bravado. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): You can advance if you display your skills, attributes and talent. Dont wait to be asked. Share your ideas and you will for-mulate good relationships with the people interested in following and support-ing your efforts. Love is highlighted. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take any opportunity that comes along to change your surroundings, whether it is just moving furniture around or actu-ally making a geographical move. Even just a day trip to an unfamiliar destina-tion will be rejuvenating. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Nurture your relation-ships. Emotional problems must not be left to fester. Make suggestions and be willing to compromise. Excess and overreacting will be what lead to trouble in the first place. Less criti-cizing and more compli-menting will be necessary. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Put more thought and creativity into a job. A seri-ous consideration will be made based on the way you handle your peers as well as how you present and promote what you have to offer. Dont make others look bad. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Dont overspend to make an impression. Simplicity coupled with an original idea and a little mystery thrown into the mix will put you in a category of your own. A surprise will bring about an unexpected opportunity. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You will find that you are in an uncom-promising position if you let your emotions lead you into conversations that will cost you a friendship, advancement or lead to a family feud. Think before you share your feelings. Focus on home improve-ments. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Dig deep into your past and you will not make the same mistake twice. You can secure your position and improve your reputation if you are strict in the way you handle per-sonal and professional situ-ations that have potential to cause friction. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Take a creative approach to the way you live your life. A change to your environment or friendships will help you move in a positive direc-tion that will improve your chances to accomplish your goals. Focus on self-improvement. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Dont trust anyone offering the impossible. Do what needs doing and keep moving in a direction that suits you. Waiting for others to complete a job or to make a comment on what you are doing will be a waste of time. ++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
