TALLAHASSEE Traditional pensions for new state and county employees, including teachers, would end under a proposal thats advancing through the Legislature. The House Appropriations committee on Friday voted 12-9 along party lines on a bill that would do away with guar anteed pensions for work ers hired as of January 2014. It would replace pensions with individual investment accounts simi lar to 401(k) plans. That will save the state nearly $13 million a year by 2016, according to Rep. Jason Brodeur, the Sanford Republican whos sponsor ing the bill (HB 7011). This bill reduces the states risk, saves the taxpayers a great deal of money, keeps every prom ise made to every current state worker, and offers robust benefits for our future state workers, he said. Democrats, labor unions and other critics are fight ing the effort, saying state and local governments will have to pay more into the current pension plan because there will be fewer members paying into it.

But the 19-yearold pop sensation appeared to have recovered Friday for his final con cert in London, singing and dancing to thousands of adoring fans at the O2 Arena. Earlier Friday, the star made head lines when he got into an altercation with insult-hurling paparazzi, lashing out at a photographer with a stream of expletives as he was restrained by minders. Ahhhhh! Rough morning. Trying to feel better for this show tonight but let the paps get the best of me, the singer posted on Twitter soon after the altercation with the photog rapher, which took place as he got into a car earlier Friday.

By TONY BRITT email@example.com For years law enforce ment officers deterred criminal activity with the saying, You cant outrun the long arm of the law. Apparently, a Suwannee County man learned he cant outrun the nose of law enforcement officers, either, after he arrested Thursday. The man alleg edly led authorities on high-speed chase, dur ing which he ran over a skunk while fleeing on his all-terrain vehicle. Even though the man was able to avoid capture initially and changed his clothes, the skunks odor led authori ties to him. Justin James Wooddell, 21, 300 SW Lottie Court, was charged with felony fleeing and eluding in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility without bond. According to Suwannee County Sheriffs Office reports, a Suwannee County deputy was dis patched to Sixth Avenue and Lake Jeffery Road in Wellborn in reference to a person on a four-wheeler who driven into the woods after leaving the County Line Bar. The deputy saw the ATV in the area of 31st Road and County Road 10 in Wellborn and activated his lights and siren to get the operator, later identified as Wooddell, to stop. The deputy reported Wooddell looked back at him and sped up on the ATV as they turned onto Koonville Highway from U.S. 90. He said Wooddell ran over a skunk with his vehicle shortly after they turned onto Koonville Highway, where he allegedly reached speeds as high as 70 mph. Wooddell then turned onto County Road 252 and headed towards Taylorville, turning onto 27th Road then onto Satellite Lane. Satellite Lane is in Columbia County, and the Columbia County Sheriffs Office was notified about the chase. With aid from the CCSO deputies, authorities were able to find Wooddell at his home. Contact was made with the defendant, who had undressed from the blue jeans and the gray shirt he was wearing, but still smelled like the skunk he had hit on Koonville Highway, Suwannee County Deputy Chuck Tompkins wrote in his report. Wooddell refused to answer any questions from authorities until he spoke to his attorney.

The renovations are expected to be completed by around midNovember. The medical center already has a collection of private and semi-private rooms, but Shands Lake Shore CEO Rhonda Sherrod said they intend to create a beauti ful environment for women to give birth within their own community. The comfort and security of our new mother-baby suites coupled with specially trained obstetric phy sicians, and dedicated, compassion ate obstetric and neonatal nurses will create a very special experience for expecting mothers, she said. The renovated Birth Center is anticipated to cost $3.4 million and will replace the current facility with 14 private suites. The new rooms will be furnished with warm and relaxing design elements, accord ing to a press release from Lake Shore Regional Medical Center. Each suite will provide a private bathroom, as well as a flat-screen TV, wireless Internet and a sofa bed for family members. Sherrod believes the hospitals goal is to create a safe and special experience for each mother admit ted into the Birth Center. The new facility ties together Shands Lake Shores quality medical care and lat est techniques to ensure that moth ers and babies are monitored 24 hours a day. Currently, Shands Lake Shore houses 99 beds in its adultcare hospital, providing assistance for a range of health care problems. We strive to make a comfortable environment for our new mothers and the entire family, she said. We take pride in these details that are necessary comforts during the birthing and postpartum events. FILE Shands Lake Shore Medical Center has begun work on renovations to its maternity unit. Construction is expected to be completed by about mid-November. Wooddell Deputies: Suspects scent left no doubt EXERCISE: Set Wednesday Continued From Page 1A ing for us is real important because we can get a reallife scenario, real-life tactics and instead of just reading a manual, our deputies can physically do it at a live school. So, its as real as we can possibly get. Seifert said officials want ed to let county residents know there will be numer ous first responders on the school campus Wednesday, but its strictly for the exer cise. We are using simulat ed munitions, simulated explosions and there will be smoke. And we want people to be aware this is a training exercise, and not to respond to the school themselves, he said. We dont want residents to flood 9-1-1 with phone calls. This is a training exercise, and well inform everyone in that area. Residents and school vis itors are asked to limit their business and traffic around the RMS campus from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Our primary goal is to keep our children in our schools safe, and thats why were doing this, Seifert said. Anyone with questions or concerns should call the Emergency Management Office at 758-1125 or the Columbia School District office at 755-8184. ECONOMY: Local business leaders input sought Continued From Page 1A local business representatives expect ed to attend the meeting and survey results will be discussed. Specifically, what we are looking for is are there things we are doing right that we need to improve on, or more importantly, are there trouble areas that we need to address and solve for our local industry and busi ness so they can more profitable, Quillen said. Other meeting later in the year will focus on the following themes: tech nology, utility services and quality of life and community services. Quillen said the joint meetings are a way for the county department and the Chamber of Commerce to act as partners on a project, as well as important local economic factors. We both have a vested interest in seeing the community succeed and seeing our businesses do well, and at the ground level of that is work force ,and we felt that was the place we needed to start, Quillen said. I know there are concerns there. I know there are things the community has done right, too. We just want to capitalize on those, recognize our weaknesses and make those things better. Abbie Chasteen, Chamber market ing coordinator, also spoke of the importance of the joint meeting and its potential effects on county eco nomics. We want to meet their needs in order for them to grow, thrive and operate efficiently. In turn, there will be a positive impact for the citizens of our community. Just another way that we continue to work together to make Lake City a great place to work, live and play, she said. About 20 representatives from education, business and industry are expected to attend the meeting. Quillen said he hopes the local partnership between industry, busi ness, government and education sec tors continues to strengthen as a result of the meetings. I would really love for this to be an informal, almost a workshop-type setting where the industry folks open up and tell us what some of their real issues are and ways they think we can help them, he said. If we can learn one thing next week that will help industry and business be more effective, then I think weve done a good deed.
T he Lake City First Baptist Church held Reverend Robert K. Davis Appreciation Day on February 10. Reverend Davis preached the sermon that day and he surely felt right at home in that pulpit. After all, he had preached from that same pulpit for 24 years, 1977-2000. All the pews were packed that day and Rev. Davis said up front he knew why: You all know that I have pancreatic cancer and you are thinking that today is a dress rehearsal for my funeral! Everybody also knew that Reverend Davis is a big advocate of Sing me no sad songs so his straightforward remark brought the biggest laugh of the day. Rev. Davis said he had learned two important lessons in his long ministry. First, a sermon does not have to be a long sermon to be a good sermon. Second, the mind can absorb only what the backside can endure. Accordingly, he kept his sermon short and focused. His sermon was on faithfulness and he made three points: God exemplifies faithfulness, God expects our faithfulness, and God examines our faithfulness, even in small things. Then, with a rousing closing hymn and an uplifting benediction, the congregation retired to the Fellowship Hall for a bounteous covered dish luncheon. The day was all the success the planners could have hoped for and more. Rev. Davis will end his ministry the last day of this month when he retires from his present church, the Woodstock Baptist Church of Jacksonville. As you may know, Rev. Davis and his wife, Pat, have experienced the ultimate tragedy any parents can face. Their son, Deputy Sheriff Jeff Davis, was killed in a car crash in the line of duty when he was in his early 20s. Deputy Jeff Davis Lane is named after him. No kindler, gentler, more gracious, more dedicated, more genu-ine preacher than Reverend Robert K. Davis has ever graced our area. Thanks be to him for his tremen-dous lifetime of ministry and to everybody at First Baptist for giving him the magnificent Appreciation Day he so richly deserved.REUNION REMINDERThe next CHS 1949-53 reunion will be held on Saturday, May 11, 2013, at 11:30, at the Mason City Community Center. Bring a covered dish. Chicken purlo, drinks, plastic ware, etc. will be provided.

AnonymousCHARLES HUMORFriend Charles Peeler has a humorous way of explaining how each of his days begins: I open my eyes and thank the Lord for a new day of life. Then I sit on the edge of my bed and thank the Lord for another day of health. Then I go to the bathroom, turn on the light, look in the mirror, have a good laugh at what I see, and that always starts my day in a good mood.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman A man falsely accused of a recent home-invasion robbery attempt spent 40 days in jail because of incorrect investigative proce-dures by the Lake City Police Department. The man, Derick Jeremy Lee, was jailed when he was identified in a photo array by a group of women who were pres-ent during the home-invasion on Jan. 25. The armed man who tried to rob several women having a jewelry party entered the home with most of his face covered. The telling, undisputed trait the women noticed? The gunman had blue eyes. Derick Jeremy Lee is innocent of this crime. He does not have blue eyes. LCPD used an array of black and white photos to ask the women to identify the suspect. How can anyone, beyond a rea-sonable doubt, pick a blue-eyed man from a black and white photo? And, the group of women was shown the photos as a group a mistake that is never acceptable in the police world. Proper procedure calls for witnesses or victims to be questioned and shown photo arrays and lineups indi-vidually. The Third Judicial Circuit State Attorneys Office, on reviewing the case, quickly dismissed it Tuesday. The wrongly accused man was set free immediately. This is not a technicality or loophole in the law. In this instance, the wrong man was locked up because of a blunder by LCPD. The department needs to come clean and admit the mistake to the pub-lic. No department is perfect, but quickly issuing a defensive statement saying that procedure was followed correctly does not hold up.

LETTERS TO THE EDITORThanks for newspaper coverage Texting ban should apply to law officers as wellTo the Editor: I just want to express my concerns about texting while driving. I understand you are 30 percent more likely to have a accident. There is a bill in Tallahassee that would make this illegal. That I sup-port, but it concerns me that it will not apply to law enforcement. It seems to me if I text while driving I am 30 percent more likely to have an accident. Would it not be the same for law enforcement? By the way, I dont even know how to text.

SEXTING: Man charged Continued From Page 1A Aaron Charles Bader, 22, 1447 NW Wayne Place, was charged with transmission of obscene or harmful material to minors in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility without bond. According to Lake City Police Department reports, on Feb. 27, Melany Brophy, the moth er of an 11-year-old child, spoke with officials from the Peel Regional Police Service and told them her child was receiving sexu ally explicit text messages from a person who claimed to be Aaron Bader. Peel Regional police investigator Chad Michell learned from the child that Bader and the child met through an online video game, started talk ing, exchanged phone numbers and began tex ting one another. From Feb. 3 to 11, the two reportedly exchanged more than 2,000 text mes sages. Authorities reported that a majority of the messages exchanged were sexually descriptive in nature and included photos. One of the conversa tions on Feb. 4, specifi cally centered on the age difference betwee the two individuals and how it seemed weird. However, the sexting continued after Bader learned the child was 11 years old. Michell, through his investigation, learned Bader might be in Lake City. He contacted the city departments Criminal Investigations Division and asked investigator David Greear to assist in finding Bader. Greear was able to ver ify the identity of Bader along with the location of his job. On Thursday, Criminal Investigations Division officers found Bader at his job shortly before noon. Greear interviewed Bader, who reportedly openly confessed to send ing obscene and sexual material to the minor while being aware of the childs age. Bader was then arrest ed and charged with transmission of obscene and harmful material to a minor by means of an electronic device. OLYMPICS: Participants get thrill of competition Continued From Page 1A high-fives as she proudly headed to collect her award ribbon. The Columbia County Special Olympics 2013 Summer Games took place Friday at the Columbia High School track, with more than 100 participants. The event kicked off with opening ceremonies where the athletes walked in with their school delegations and the athletes, coaches and volunteer took their oaths before the competi tion began. Representatives from the Columbia County Sheriffs Office, Florida Highway Patrol and Lake City Police Department carried the Special Olympics torch to the stadium. County Sheriff Mark Hunter lit the torch, and selected athletes completed a lap around the track with the torch to offi cially start the games. According to event orga nizers, about 130 partici pants school children and some adults took part in the various activities. Tiffanie Conner was one of several parents sitting alongside the track offering words of encouragement to event participants. Her daughter, Sarah Beth, 12, was representing Lake City Middle School. It means everything to come out and see Sarah Beth participate in the Special Olympics, she said. She looks forward to this every year. Shes been real excited. Conner also said it was important for the children who compete in Special Olympics to have the opportunity to participate in sports and competitions just as other children do. I think competing gives them pride in themselves, and it lets them know they can accomplish any thing that anyone else can accomplish, she said. Landon Green, 15, earned first place in his division of the shot put competition. Green, who was awarded a blue ribbon after his win, said it was the first time he had won first place in the Special Olympics shot put compe tition. It was good to win first place, he said. I like to do the shot put and running. Shea Showers, a Fort White High School coach, was working at his first Special Olympics and he seemed nearly excited as the participants. This is enjoyable just seeing the kids getting out competing and having fun, and thats what its all about, he said. Its just giving them an opportunity to compete and have fun. He said the Fort White High School Special Olympians were prepared for competition. For the most part, the kids have been fine because they enjoy the event and they get to go outside, hang out and participate in the different activities, he said.

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comALACHUA With college-level talent on the mound, a stumble at the start can be fatal. Fort White Highs baseball team scored two runs in the first inning and pitcher Robby Howell made them stand up in a 2-1 district win at Santa Fe High on Saturday. Howell has signed a scholarship to play at UCF and he was facing Kirby Snead, who has signed with Florida. Consider these pitching lines. Howell went seven innings with three hits, one earned run, four walks and nine strikeouts. He worked out of a one-out, bases-loaded jam in the first inning. After Santa Fe scored with two outs in the second inning, no Raider reached second base. Howell retired the final seven batters includ-ing striking out the side in the seventh inning. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFlorida basketball head coach Billy Donovan holds up the net after beating Vanderbilt to win the regular season SEC Championship on Wednesday. Kentucky upsets No. 11 Florida, 61-57Associated PressLEXINGTON, Ky. Kentucky faces a diffi-cult road toward an NCAA tournament bid, but the Wildcats rallied past No. 11 Florida 61-57 Saturday to help their cause with the committee. The Gators looked ready to hand a final blow to the Wildcats postseason hopes after a 19-5 run provided a 57-50 lead with 7 1/2 min-utes remaining. Kentucky responded by scoring the final 11 points of the game, boosting the Wildcats NCAA prospects. The defending national champions (21-10, 12-6) need at least another win in next weeks Southeastern Conference tournament to solidify their tournament chances, but beating Florida clinched the No. 2 seed. They swam like heck, said Kentucky coach John Calipari, who used terms such as sink or swim and do or die to describe his teams chances on Friday. In the last seven minutes, when it was in doubt, they swam like heck. When Miami, Florida State both pick up wins in ACC play. NCAA continued on 2B JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterAlex Milton swings at a pitch while playing against Val dosta High on Thursday.Tigers hitless in opening district gameBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comThe weather has been cold so far this year and so have Columbia Highs bats. The Tigers have struggled all year at the plate and nothing changed on Friday night as Columbia travelled to Atlantic Coast High for their first district contest of the season. Columbia was held without a hit in a 4-0 loss against the Stringrays. Pitcher Ross Garnder went 5 23 innings for the Stringrays, struck out nine batters and walked six. He was relieved in the sixth inning by Joe Perret, who kept the no-hitter going with two strikeouts over the remainder of the game. Jordan Culp, Levi Hollingsworth, Alex Milton and Harrison Shubert all drew walks for the Tigers. Its the same story that weve been going through all year long, Columbia head coach Jonathan Ulsh said. We just havent been able to hit so far this season. The good news for the Tigers is that their defense and pitching has been good Atlantic Coast beats Columbia, 4-0, on Friday. CHS continued on 6B

Kentuckys win ended a two-game losing streak and increased the prospect that the Wildcats needed to win the SEC tournament in Nashville to secure a bid. The Wildcats came away with their second win against a Top-25 opponent they also beat then-No. 16 Mississippi and fol-lowed up another quality win against Missouri two weeks ago. Julius Mays two free throws with 9.4 sec-onds remaining capped Kentuckys comeback, a fit-ting end for the fifth-year senior transfer playing his final regular season game for the Wildcats. He fin-ished with 13 points. I have had big moments in my college career, but that one was probably my biggest one because we needed that win more than anything to keep our hopes alive, said Mays, honored before the game along with senior guard Twany Beckham. I told coach when we went into that timeout that I wanted the ball. He didnt draw the play the way I ran it, but I wanted that ball and I wanted to shoot those free throws. Archie Goodwins nine second-half points set the stage for Kentuckys rally. With the Wildcats trailing 57-50, the freshman scored five straight points and Ryan Harrow (13 points) added two free throws to tie the game.No. 6 Miami 62, Clemson 49CORAL GABLES Down to its third try and last chance, Miami came through.

After Fort White did its damage in the first inning, the Indians went hitless the rest of the way and had only three more base runners. Snead threw just 83 pitches. I approached it like a nor mal game, Howell said. It is still baseball regardless of who is pitching. I have to give a big shout-out to everybody who was making defensive plays throughout the game. I needed that. Brady Wilkinson led off the game for the Indians with a single to center field. Kody Moniz bunted him to second base and Kevin Dupree lashed an 0-2 pitch in the left-field corner for an RBI-double. Anthony Gonzalez ran for Dupree and after Willie Carter walked they pulled off a double steal. Howell then sliced a single to right field to score the run. (The early runs) fired me up a little bit, Howell said. When you can work with a lead, it makes it easi er on me. Tyler Barron scored Santa Fes run after a twoout single. He stole second base and scored on a single by Chad Stockdale, the first of his two hits. Stockdale stole second, but was denied scoring when sec ond-baseman Rhett Willis made a diving stop on a ground ball and got the out at first base. Howell stabbed a line drive with the bases loaded in the first inning, and thirdbaseman Trace Wilkinson earned praise from coach Mike Rizzi and Howell. Wilkinson snagged a leadoff line drive in the sixth inning that was headed for a double and handled all five ground balls hit his way. It was a great win and what made it for our seniors is they had never beaten Santa Fe before today, Rizzi said. Anytime you face Kirby, you know you are going to be in a close ball game. I have to men tion our third-baseman. He is only a sophomore and he made every play today. With our pitching, good defense is our M.O.; if we do it, we have a chance to win. Santa Fe fell to 7-2 and 1-2 in District 5-4A, but Raiders head coach Todd Gray appreciated the effort. It was a hard-fought battle, Gray said. You had two pitchers who pitched their butts off. (Snead) may have been a little rusty to begin with and we have got to adjust to that. Well learn from it and move on. Fort White (8-1, 4-0) hosts Bradford High at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

By TONY BRITT email@example.com M any people would cringe at the idea of working in their chosen field of expertise for more than 50 years, especially if they had to look in someones mouth at incisors, canines, molars and premolars all day. However, for local dentist Dr. Robert E. Marks, DDS, the past five and a half decades have been a labor of love. On Monday, Marks will cel ebrate his 50th year of working as a dentist in Lake City. Marks works at Southwest Family Dentistry, 389 SW Chapel Hill St. Marks served in the Army after attending dental school and he also did dental work for two years while serving in the Army in Fort Benning, Ga., before he moved to Columbia County. Ive had 55 years in the mouth, he joked, noting he spent three years in dental school, two years in military dentistry and 50 years working as a dentist in Lake City. Marks, 78, opened his first office in 1963 in the Lake City Plaza. His office, which was built to his specifications, sat on the south end of the plaza. His first patient on March 11, 1963, was William Bill Baldwin. His office has an all-brick facing, different from all the other buildings in the plaza. Some 23 years later, when Marks decided to move his prac tice to a new location, he sought and found Baldwin, who once again served as his first patient in the new office. Originally from Knoxville, Tenn., Marks moved to the area after talking to a dental school friend who practiced in Tallahassee and has remained here. How a young fellow, 28 years old, could expect to go in a totally strange community with three dentists in it and expect to make a living the man would have to 1CBIZ FRONT T he Suwannee River Valley Marketing Group is proud to announce its annual Tourism Week Awards Luncheon will be held on Wednesday, May 15, beginning at 11:30 a.m., at the Lake City Holiday Inn & Suites.

But through time, he proved he wasnt nuts and turned a small opportunity into a career and living for him and his family more than 50 years later. Its been a good time, a great career and this is a great place, he said. These days, Marks only works a limited number of hours each week. Most of the work is handled by his partner, who purchased the practice four years ago, John A. Batlle III. He bought me out four years ago and that means he bought the equipment and the patients, Marks said. I rent him the building and he keeps me from having to work 65 hours a week. Hes a wonderful friend and a great dentist. I would recommend him to any and every body. Hes a terrific man. Batlle also was complimentary of Marks. Dr. Marks is a gentleman, a superb clinician and he has a great love for the people of Columbia County and Lake City, Batlle said. Hes just been a tremendous asset to the people of this, area and hes been a selfless provider for the den-tal health for people in this area. Batlle said Marks has been able to work in the area for 50 years a for several reasons. The quality of his work is absolutely superb, hes a gentleman and he has a love for his patients, he said. He goes back three genera-tions with many families in Columbia County, and people who know him love him and he loves his patients, as well. You almost have to be another dentist to appreciate the quality of his work, Batlle continued. Its been a pleasure to work with him and come behind him to serve the patients of our practice. Marks is also well known for his community work with the Rotary Club of Lake City, as well as serv-ing as a Cub Scout troop leader for Troop 87, where he and Bill Wheeler were scout masters. As scout mas-ters, the two had five Eagle Scouts. Marks who has dental patients from Suwannee, Hamilton, Gilchrist and other nearby counties, said Columbia County really supported he, his wife and his four children. Ive been blessed by all these thousands of patients who did that for me, and I wish them God speed and to do it with my blessings, he said. Those who have gone before, may God rest their souls and those who remain, I wish them every hap-piness and success. Its been a good time, a great career and this is a great place.

LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, MARCH 10, 2013 3C By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABERAP Economics WriterWASHINGTON A burst of hiring last month added 236,000 U.S. jobs and reduced the unem-ployment rate to 7.7 per-cent from 7.9 percent in January. The robust gains suggested that the econ-omy can strengthen fur-ther despite higher taxes and government spending cuts. The February jobs report issued Friday by the Labor Department pro-vided encouraging details: The unemployment rate is at its lowest level in four years. Job growth has aver-aged more than 200,000 a month since November. Wages rose. And the job gains were broad-based, led by the most construc-tion hiring in six years. Employers have been emboldened by a rebound-ing U.S. economy. The housing, auto and manu-facturing sectors have improved. Corporate prof-its are strong. And the Dow Jones industrial average is at a record high. The unemployment rate, which had been stuck at 7.8 percent or above since September, declined most-ly because more people found work. Another fac-tor was that 130,000 people without jobs stopped look-ing for work last month. The government doesnt count them as unem-ployed. The unemployment rate is calculated from a sur-vey of households. The job gains are derived from a separate survey of employ-ers. The 236,000 jobs that were added in February is a historically solid total. And it would have been higher if governments were contributing to job growth, rather than sub-tracting from it as they have for nearly four years. Governments cut 10,000 jobs in February. If federal, state and local governments were adding their long-term combined average of 20,000 to 25,000 jobs a month, Februarys total job gains would have been around 260,000. Hiring has accelerated since summer. Employers added an average of 205,000 jobs a month from November through February. They had aver-aged 154,000 gains from July through October and 132,000 from March through June. Stock prices rose modestly Friday after the report was released at 8:30 a.m. Eastern time. Another day of stock gains would give the Dow Jones industrial average its fourth straight record close. The government said employers added slightly fewer jobs in January than the government had first estimated. Job gains were lowered to 119,000 from an initially estimated 157,000. Still, December hiring was a little stronger than first thought, with 219,000 jobs added instead of 191,000. Robust auto sales and a steady housing recovery are spurring more hiring, which could trigger more consumer spending and stronger economic growth. The construction industry added 48,000 in February; its added 151,000 since September. Manufacturing gained 14,000 jobs last month and 39,000 since November. Retailers added 24,000 jobs, a sign that they antic-ipate healthy consumer spending in the coming months. Education and health services gained 24,000. And the information industry, which includes publishing, telecommu-nications and film, added 20,000, mostly in the movie industry. The economy is generating more higher-pay-ing jobs in industries like accounting, engineering and information technol-ogy. Thats raising average pay, which will help offset the hit that Americans took from higher Social Security taxes and gas prices. Hourly wages rose 4 cents to $23.82 last month. Wages have risen 2.1 per-cent over the past year, slightly ahead of inflation. Higher pay is vital to the economy because consum-er spending drives 70 per-cent of economic activity. Were seeing the mix of jobs improve, says Ryan Sweet, a senior economist at Moodys Analytics. The improved job market can also benefit coun-tries that sell goods and services to U.S. consum-ers and businesses. All you have to do is look at the trade numbers, says Bernard Baumohl, chief global economist at the Economic Outlook Group. The strength in the U.S. economy is lead-ing to faster growth in imports. Imports rose 2 percent in January from December. Those from China surged 7 percent. A stronger U.S. economy, Baumohl says, will also help a battered Europe, which is contending with high unemployment and a debt crisis. By LEANNE ITALIEAssociated PressNEW YORK Yahoos leaked edict under CEO Marissa Mayer that calls remote workers back to the office lit the Twitterverse on fire, angering advocates of tele-commuting and other programs intended to balance work and home life. A new study from the nonprofit Families and Work Institute shows a tide moving the other way, with more workers now tele-commuting and men signifi-cantly more likely than women to be granted the freedom to work at least partially at home. Left mostly unanswered is the question Mayer appears to be dealing with: Is that a good thing? Or has the rise in telecommuting led to a drop in productivity or creativity? Chances are, one telework supporter said, the tech giant just wasnt doing it right. If you dont know where your people are and what theyre doing, then you havent imple-mented properly, so shes got her hands full, said Kate Lister in San Diego, Calif., co-founder of Global Workplace Analytics, which collects data on the sub-ject for its Telework Research Network. Slogging through decades of research on the value of tele-commuting is complicated. Small studies have been done by employer membership orga-nizations, companies looking at their own ranks, consulting firms and government agencies, along with academics. Some use small samples, others rely on a wild array of statistics from the U.S. Census, the Small Business Administration or the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The verdicts are mixed and the research often so focused on a work force or issue related to flex options that its dif-ficult to make conclusions. The new Families and Work Institute study, on the other hand, deals solely with employers in the U.S., delving into a broad range of family friendly programs, poli-cies and benefits. The institute found that 63 percent of employ-ers surveyed allow at least some employees to work partially at home on an occasional basis. Thats up from 34 percent in a comparable study done for the institute in 2005. More of the workers were higher-wage earners. Overall, the number of employees who work entirely from home was 3 percent, compared to 64 percent who sometimes do, said Ellen Galinsky, the institutes president and co-founder. Men were significantly more likely than women to work par-tially at home 67 percent com-pared to 59 percent of women, partially a reflection of more men in jobs where the option is pos-sible. Men also were more likely to work mainly from home. Neither Lister nor Galinsky has the inside scoop on whats happening at Yahoo, but Galinsky was steadfast about one thing. To take away all flexibility for everyone all the time is an overreaction, she said. If you know that people will be more innovative and collaborative by being together, that is a positive. But sometimes people need time alone. Why do the best ideas occur in the shower, or when were walking the dog? Galinsky and others who study work-life balance dont anticipate a backlash among other employ-ers due to Yahoo. And the com-pany itself followed up an internal memo leaked to the tech blog All things D with a curt statement indicating the prohibition might not be forever. Meantime, Lister said about 2.5 percent of the U.S. civilian population, or about 3 million people, work at home at least half the time, according to U.S. Census data. The rate of growth was slowed by the recession, with some researchers suggest-ing its flat at the moment. Why isnt the number even higher? The biggest reason is that managers dont trust their employees, Lister said. Theyre still managing the 21st-century work force with 20th-century styles of commands and con-trols, back to the days of sweat-shops and typing pools. They like to be able to see the backs of their heads. The perceived benefits for workers are clear. While 37 percent of the companies in Galinskys report cite retention of employees as the main reason for developing workplace flexi-bility and other programs, Lister said 90 percent of teleworkers feel being able to work flexibly improves their quality of life. But what about for employers?The leaked Yahoo memo, written by Jackie Reses, the compa-nys human resources director, said in part: Some of the best decisions and insights come from hallway and cafeteria discussions, meet-ing new people and impromptu team meeting. Speed and qual-ity are often sacrificed when we work from home. We need to be one Yahoo!, and that starts with physically being together. Researchers in the field note a dearth in credible studies that confirm a boost in creative flow or innovation from face time. And telecommuting may actually boost productivity, at least where it stands in the number of hours worked, said researchers Mary C. Noonan and Jennifer L. Glass in a study of telecom-muting published last June in the Monthly Labor Review, a publication of the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The two studied employees who work regularly but not exclusively from home and found that for them, telecom-muting was not a substitute for working onsite during an agreed upon work week but rather was in addition to a full week, at least half the time. Telecommuting: Was Yahoo doing it right?Internet company bucks trend on working at home.ASSOCIATED PRESSHost Savannah Guthrie (left) interviews Yahoo CEO Mariss a Mayer on NBC News Today show Feb. 20. Mayer caused a huge debate in the business world when annou nced Yahoo employees would no longer be allowed to telecommute for their jobs. The edict seems to go against the trend of allowing employees to work from home. ASSOCIATED PRESSA Border Patrol agent monitors the International Railroad Bridge in Buffalo, N.Y. Border security will take a hit as federal employees take furlough days becuase of budget cu ts.US adds 236K jobs in FebruaryBy SAM HANANELAssociated PressWASHINGTON First there was a two-year pay freeze. Now furloughs loom, as federal agencies make personnel costs a prime target for across-the-board budget cuts that went into effect last week. The result: anxiety and low morale in a workforce often envied for its job security. It would certainly put a strain on things, said Jonathan Schweizer, 61, an environmental engi-neer at the Environmental Protection Agency in Chicago who could be forced to take up to 13 days of unpaid leave this year. Id probably have to run up some credit card debt or defer maintenance on my home that Id otherwise consider important. Government agencies vary widely in how they are dealing with the sequester, according to labor unions that represent federal work-ers. Federal workers could face seven days of furloughs at the Housing and Urban Development Department, while Homeland Security personnel might see twice that number. More than half of the nations 2.1 million federal workers could be fur-loughed over the next six months. The federal govern-ment is the countrys single largest employer, with its employees making up about 1.2 percent of the nations work force. A lot of people think federal employees are fat-cat bureaucrats in Washington, but they dont realize more than 85 per-cent of these workers live outside of D.C., said Tim Kauffman, spokesman for the American Federation of Government Employees. A lot of them are not high-ly paid folks, like VA nurses and emergency response workers. AFGE, which represents more than 600,000 federal workers, is trying to keep track of all the different fur-lough plans as their mem-bers face the prospect of lost wages during mandato-ry time off without pay and growing frustration about getting work done. It seems the federal workforce is under constant attack these days, particu-larly from Republican law-makers who want to shrink government and contend federal employees are over-paid with more generous benefits compared to the private sector. Federal workers brace for furloughs ASSOCIATED PRESSAnn Oganesian (left) of Newton, Mass., pauses as she speak s with a State Department employee about job opportunities with the federal governm ent during a job fair in Boston last month. U.S. employers ramped up hiring in February, a dding 236,000 jobs and pushing the unemployment rate down to 7.7 percent from 7.9 percent i n January. Working Life

M any kinds of fruit can be grown success-fully in our North Florida home gardens, but some unusual and rather misplaced fruit trees may take a little more grower finesse. One of these worthwhile plants is the attractive, but tempera-mental fig tree. The fig originated in the Old World tropics and has been cultivated in the Mediterranean since at least 5,000 B.C. Because the fig is adapted to dry cli-mates, our humid growing season causes additional disease and insect stress to the plant. Seasonal rains often arrive just in time to cause the skins of developing fruit to crack. In its natural habitat, the fig can reach heights of 50 feet. But here in the Southeast, our winter freezes often kill the top growth when temperatures dip into the teens. Our figs rarely become more than large, multi-stemmed bush-es. They have interesting bright green leaves, which often measure a foot long. The upper leaf surface has a rough, fuzzy texture which can be irritating to the touch for some people. Fig cultivars that grow and produce best here belong to the common types of fig. These are all female forms, and they do not require a pollinator. Brown Turkey and Celeste are two common cultivars that are reportedly more cold hardy than other culti-vars. These selections are both found easily in garden retail stores. The fruit of a fig develops unlike any other type. As the fig matures and becomes fleshy, the apex of the fruit will contain what is called an open or closed eye. If the fruit is an open-eye type, it means there is a natural opening into the end of the fruit. The opening makes the fruit more vulnerable to attack by insects or diseases. The closed-eye types are more desirable because the opening has grown closed and has fewer problems. Container-grown plants may be planted any time of year provided they receive irrigation until established. After that, irrigation is optional. except during severe drought. Figs need to be planted in full sun and well-drained soil. Young trees will benefit from one half pound of 10-10-10 complete fertilizer applied three times during the growing season from February through August. Each application amount increases to two pounds for larger trees.

If you are more determined than ever, find out how to grow figs in con-tainers, so you can avoid many of the above prob-lemsm at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/mg243 For further information, call the Master Gardeners at 752-5284. LIFE Sunday, March 10, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D A fter stumbling across the existence of Mt. Charleston, about 30 minutes north of the Las Vegas strip last year, Sue Towns and I decided we had to explore the area. It started with a fireside breakfast at the Mt. Charleston Lodge complete with mimosas. Outside, the temperatures average 15-20 degrees below that of the valley and the strip below. There were still remnants of the last snowfall and ice on the ground, but the skies were blue and the air crisp. We found the Mary Jane Falls trailhead, which interested us. It was one of the shorter hikes and the thought of a waterfall at the end appealed to us. So off we went. As we navigated the gravel path, we had to sidestep some larger rocks, downed limbs, but mostly melting snow and ice. We didnt make it far before I spotted some unfamiliar tracks in the icy snow. At first glance, they appeared to be paw prints from a dog. After further investi-gation you could see sharp claws coming off the ends of the paw print, larger than what youd expect from mans best friend. I called Sue back and asked her to take a look to confirm what I thought. Initially, she thought shed walked right over a snake and didnt notice. Needless to say it spooked us because there are bears in the area and we didnt want to become one of the stories you hear about on the news thinking well they saw the paw prints but kept going anyway. We stopped, discussed it and made it back down the trail much faster than we headed up it, all the while disappointed about not see-ing the falls and making it to the end of the trail. Fast forward a year later and another trip to Mt. Charleston, this time with Sonja Meads and Susan Eagle also in tow. We start-ed with another fireside breakfast and then made our way back to the trail-head for a second attempt. This time I tried not to pay attention to the icy snow and was determined to make it to the falls. Sue said she was going to look much closer this time. So we made it much further than we did the first time, and with more people, we had more dis-tractions, like navigating the terrain, stopping for photo ops and resting due to the altitude changes. But no bear paw prints in the snow. We neared an area that had a sign pointing right that said Trail, so we took the turn and thought we were heading towards the waterfall. The trail became much more strenuous as Jane Falls awaits our third attempt Story ideas?ContactRobert BridgesEditor754email@example.com Lake City Reporter1DLIFEBy DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comW hether its waving to kin-dergart-ners or posing with environ-mentally friendly adults, Bellamy Beaver and The Ichetucknee Partnership marketing effort continue to spread a water conser-vation message through-out Columbia County. Bellamy, the 8-foottall mascot for TIP had just finished visiting about 80 kindergarten students at Five Points Elementary School, high-lighting the importance of saving water to protect the springs, when he and his handler, Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce marketing coordinator and TIP coordinator Abbie Chasteen, paused to explain the mission. The Ichetucknee Partnership was formed in 2008 when residents of the community and city and county government officials decided it would be best for the area to focus on protecting the springs. Local springs pro-vide residents inexpensive recreation but also bring environmental tourists to the area. In 2012, TIP partnered with the Chamber of Commerce to be the marketing arm of the organization and show the impact the springs have on Columbia County. The chamber launched an aggressive market-ing campaign that has revolved around visibility of the organization and springs awareness. The City of Lake City donated a surplus van to TIP and that organiza-tion had a colorful wrap that showcases Bellamys message of water con-servation and a beautiful springs scene. The vans impressive visual isnt just decoration, Chasteen said. She hopes the four lines of text on the back door will be read every time someones attention is grabbed by the flashy ride. Its really a spectacle, Chasteen said. Those four lines give advice on what residents can do to help preserve the springs. They are: use less fertilizer, use less pesticides, maintain septic tanks and conserve water. Chasteen said Bellamy grabs the attention of young children, too. The kids seem to listen better when Bellamy is around, she said. They love Bellamy. Chasteen, a former first-grade teacher, said she enjoys traveling with Bellamy to the elementary schools to help spread the importance of water con-servation. She said students at the elementary schools ask questions like, Does Bellamy eat apples? and Does Bellamy talk? Chasteen laughed, and said although the kin-dergartners are more interested in finding out about the overgrown bea-ver, she knows the other parts of the message are sticking.

By MICHELLE LOCKEAssociated PressCoffee, Irish whiskey and cream. Taken separately theyre a tasty trio. But combine them just the right way and in just the right proportions and they get even better, transforming into a drink that can perk up the gray-est day. Were talking Irish coffee, of course, a drink thats especially popular around St. Patricks Day, but good any time you want to add some zing to your caffeine. The secret, says Larry Silva, general manager of the Buena Vista Cafe in San Francisco which serves up 2,000 Irish coffees a day is how you put the drink together. At the Buena Vista the original source of the drink in the U.S. Irish coffee starts with a stemmed, 6-ounce glass thats been pre-heated with hot water. And both of those elements are critical. A bigger or smaller glass would throw off the coffee-booze balance. A cold glass results in a tepid cocktail. For a touch of sweetness, the Buena Vista recipe adds two cubes of sugar, though other recipes call for brown sugar. The cream, meanwhile, should be fresh and just slightly whipped nothing from an aerosol can. As for the whiskey, the Buena Vista is currently using Tullamore Dew. In general, what you are seek-ing is a smooth whiskey that wont fight with the other flavors, says Silva. Using a premium spirit elevates any cocktail, says John Concannon, a California vintner who has teamed with Irelands Cooley Distillery to develop Concannon Irish Whiskey, which also makes a good Irish coffee. Though it seems likely that people have been introducing a drop or two of whiskey into coffee for a while, the drink as a cocktail was popularized in Ireland at the Foynes port, precursor to Shannon Airport, in the 1940s when chef Joe Sheridan decided to pep up some coffee with Irish whiskey to cheer chilly travelers. The drink was much appreciated and one of the passengers is said to have asked, Was that Brazilian coffee? Sheridan jokingly answered, No, that was Irish Coffee, and a tradition was born. San Francisco newspaperman Stanton Delaplane tried the coffee while fly-ing from Shannon Airport in 1952 and on his return got together with Jack Koeppler, then-owner of the Buena Vista, to recre-ate the drink. The trickiest part was getting the cream to float on top, something that was solved by whip-ping the cream just a bit, then pouring it carefully over the back of a spoon into the cup. Looking to brew a little Irish cheer yourself this St. Patricks Day? Try this classic recipe, or the choco-late-laced variation.IRISH COFFEE Depending on which version of the original Irish coffee you subscribe to, it is sweetened with either 2 sugar cubes or 1 teaspoon brown sugar. For a rich and chocolaty take on Irish coffee, stir 2 table-spoons of milk chocolate bits into the coffee at the same time as the sugar. Once the chocolate bits have melted, proceed with the recipe. Start to finish: 5 minutes Servings: 1Ingredients:Boiling waterHot coffee2 sugar cubes or 1 teaspoon brown sugar 1 1/2 ounces Irish whiskey 1/4 cup heavy or whipping cream, lightly beaten (but still pourable)Instructions:Fill a large coffee cup with boiling water to pre-heat it. Let it stand for about 1 minute, then empty the glass. Fill the glass three-quarters full with hot coffee. Add the sugar, then stir until dissolved. Stir in the whiskey. Top the coffee-whiskey blend with the lightly whipped cream. To do this, hold an overturned spoon over the coffee, then slow-ly pour the cream over it. The goal is for the cream to float on top of the cof-fee; do not mix it in. Part of the Irish coffee experi-ence is drinking the hot coffee through a layer of cool cream. you climbed switchbacks further up the side of the mountain on much narrower paths. It didnt take long to realize this was a different trail, but we continued in hopes of something, though not sure what. The closer to the top we got, the more rocky and narrower the path became. Sonja and Susan stopped short, but Sue and I trekked on in hopes that wed still see a waterfall. We almost made it to the top. You could see the larger boulders at the top and the trail became almost nonexistent. We decided it was also time for us to stop. We then headed back down, picked up Sonja and Susan and made our way back to the bottom where the trail diverted. We looked closer and you could see rocks across the snow as if it was blocked and you couldnt go straight. It explained the confusion on why we didnt continue forward and turned at the sign. We still enjoyed the hike and the beautiful scenery, but darn if we still didnt see the waterfall. Perhaps another time.

Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, MARCH 10, 2013 3D3DLIFEBy EILEEN AJ CONNELLYAssociated Press NEW YORK What could possibly go wrong? An Australian billionaire is getting ready to build a new version of the Titanic that could set sail in late 2016. Clive Palmer unveiled blueprints for the famously doomed ships namesake recently at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York. He said construction is scheduled to start soon in China. Palmer said 40,000 people have expressed interest in tickets for the maiden voyage, which he intends to follow the original Titanics course from Southampton, England, to New York. He said people are inspired by his quest to replicate one of the most famous vessels in history. We all live on this planet, we all breathe the same air and, of course, the Titanic is about the things weve got in common, he said. It links three continents. The original Titanic was the worlds largest and most luxuri-ous ocean liner when it hit an iceberg in the North Atlantic and sank on April 15, 1912. Only 700 people of the more than 2,200 on board survived the most famous maritime disaster in history, part-ly because there were not enough lifeboats to carry everyone. Palmer said an unknown when the original ship sailed climate change may play into a posi-tive for the new ships fate. One of the benefits of global warming is there hasnt been as many icebergs in the North Atlantic these days, Palmer said. Passengers on board the replica will dress in the fashion of that period and eat dishes from the original menu, in dining rooms copied from the ill-fated prede-cessor. Joining Palmer on Tuesday was Helen Benziger, the great granddaughter of Titanic sur-vivor Margaret Molly Brown. Benziger, who agreed to serve on the advisory board for the Titanic II, said her great grandmother, who died in 1932, would have loved to see the Titanic rebuilt and complete the journey it never got to finish. In what some may consider a temptation of fate for a remake of a notoriously unsinkable ship that sank, a representative of the Finnish designer of the Titanic II said it will be the safest cruise ship in the world. Markku Kanerva, director of sales for marine design company Deltamarin said that while the vessel is modeled after the leg-endary liner the diesel-pow-ered ship will even have four decorative smoke stacks mimick-ing the coal-powered originals it will meet modern navigation and safety requirements. In addition, plans call for a new safety deck featuring state-of-the-art lifeboats, safety chutes and slides. The new ship will also have amenities unknown a cen-tury ago, like air conditioning. Palmer, who is funding construction of the ship himself, built his fortune in real estate and coal. Australias BRW magazine esti-mated his net worth last year at $4 billion, although Forbes puts it at $895 million. I want to spend the money Ive got before I die, he said. You might as well spend it, not leave it to the kids to spend, there will be enough left for them anyway.

The ship, which Australian billionaire Clive Palmer (below left) is planning to build in China, is scheduled to sail in 20 16.

Cereal i s going out of the box. Milk, ice cream, muffin mix and more are being infused with the flavor of the classic childhood tre at. Cereal being used to flavor variety of foods, drinksBy MICHELLE LOCKEAssociated PressBreakfast cereal flavors are jumping out of the box. Milk, ice cream, baking mixes and more are getting infused with the flavor of the classic childhood treat. Theres even a line of lip balms and a cereal-flavored vodka. Snap, crackle, what?The trend ties into a broader hankering for retro foods and flavors, heavy on the comfort factor, says Cathy Nash Holley, pub-lisher and editor-in-chief of the trade magazine Flavor & The Menu. Chefs have been using cereal for a while as crusts and coatings on savory items. Whats new is that cereals are being used in a more whimsical sense, even calling out the brand name for an added sense of playfulness. So you have desserts like the Shaved Ice Sundae with a topping of Capn Crunch at Talde in New York City or the Rice Krispies that top a flourless chocolate cake at Morimoto NY. Looking beyond restaurant menus, there are lip balms that come in the fla-vors of Trix (Silly rabbit, lip balm is for kids!?!), Cocoa Puffs and Count Chocula, among other flavors. Betty Crocker has cereal-flavored muffin mixes including Cinnamon Toast Crunch. And Three Olives released a cereal-flavored vodka called Loopy with a strikingly Froot Loops-style motif on the bottle. A fruity delight in every... er... shot? But its possible that may have been a little too spir-ited an attempt at the trend. After first pitching a story on the product to the AP, company representatives suddenly went radio silent, and ultimately declined to comment on their own story. A query to Kelloggs, makers of Froot Loops, also netted a no comment. On the restaurant scene, Christina Tosi, founding chef of Momofuku Milk Bar, a bakery in New York, is a pioneer in cereal creations, an obsession that began in 2007 when she was devel-oping a panna cotta for the opening menu of chef David Changs Momofuku Ko restaurant. There were two problems. One, the dessert menu was a blank, and two, the new freezer that was supposed to hold ice cream for that nonexistent des-sert menu was on the fritz. Panna cotta seemed like a good idea, but it needed to be something a bit more interesting than the regular version of that dessert. By TAMARA LUSHAssociated PressGAINESVILLE Hyperbaric chambers have been used for decades to treat divers with the bends, burn victims and people with traumatic inju-ries, but in Florida and a handful of other states theyre increasingly being used on ailing pets. Doctors at the University of Floridas College of Veterinary Medicine have recently used an oxygen chamber on dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits and one monkey. Veterinarian and professor Justin Shmalberg said the capsule has been used to treat animals that have been bitten by rattlesnakes, hit by cars and those with infected wounds, among other things. Any place we have swelling of tissue, we oftentimes are think-ing about the hyperbaric chamber as something we could do to decrease that, he said. Shmalberg said the chambers high-pres-sure atmosphere of pure oxygen appears to help reduce swelling and aid healing time. He added that the school will begin clinical trials this summer to determine how or even if the hyperbaric cham-ber really is effective in speeding recoveries and healing animals. There is little research on hyperbaric treatments and pets, although veteri-narians who use the cham-bers note that most of the research for human hyper-baric treatments comes from trials done on rabbits and rats. We want to make sure theres really good science behind it, said Dr. Diane Levitan, who owns Peace Love Pets Veterinary Care in Commack, N.Y. Its not a panacea. There are spe-cific reasons why this is helpful. Levitan has a hyperbaric chamber in her practice and is writing an article for a veterinary journal on the treatment. Like Shmalberg, she has seen an improved rate of heal-ing for certain conditions such as herniated discs, abscesses and even post-radiation swelling. In humans, insurance companies will pay for hyperbaric treatment for several conditions, includ-ing carbon monoxide poi-soning, crush injuries and bone marrow infections, among other things. Some insurance companies wont pay for hyperbaric treatment for wounds or ulcers, saying that its an unproven therapy but some people swear by the treatment and seek out private clinics. Its the same with pet owners; veterinarians with oxygen chambers say that people with sick pets often will often research the treatment and request it after becoming familiar with it through human medicine. It is a very new modality for treatment in veteri-nary medicine, said Dr. Andrew Turkell of Calusa Veterinary Center in Boca Raton. The devices used by UF, Levitan and Turkell are about the size of a loveseat and are manufac-tured in Florida by a Boca Raton company named Hyperbaric Veterinary Medicine. Turkell was the first doctor to sign a contract with Hyperbaric Veterinary Medicine, and estimates that hes used the chamber 750-800 times in the past year and a half. I find that its really very effective for any kind of trauma, he said, adding that hes seen improve-ments in pets that have been hit by cars that have been subsequently treated in the chamber. Wayne McCullough, the companys CEO, said that most veterinary offices cant afford to buy the cap-sules outright chambers for humans cost between $50,000 and $150,000 each so the company gives the clinics the chambers and then receives a cut on each treatment done by the veterinarian. At the UF clinic, treatment costs about $125 per session. McCullough said that his employees deliver and train veterinarians on how to use the capsule. Working with 100 percent oxygen can be dangerous, which is why pets going inside the chamber are patted down with water before the treatment so their fur doesnt conduct static electricity and cause a fire. In 2012, the high-oxygen chamber of a Florida equine sports medicine center exploded and caused part of a building to collapse, killed a worker and the horse inside the chamber. The machine that exploded wasnt one of McCulloughs chambers; it was a larger contrap-tion made for horses. The horse inside the chamber apparently struck the side of the machine with its foot, which caused the spark and fire. It under-scored the potential dan-ger of the capsules. UF hyperbaric chamber being used to treat pets ASSOCIATED PRESSA dachshund named Maggie is treated in a hyperbaric chamber for an infection and paw wound at the University of Floridas College of Vet erinary Medicine, in Gainesville. Vets at the university here have used the chamber on dogs, cats ferrets, rabbits and one monkey.

DEAR ABBY: I met a man 15 years ago who has recently come back into my life. I hadnt seen him in years. He says he wants to be with me and marry me, and I very much would like to be his wife. I live in one state, he lives in another and his work is in yet another state. He does travel -not much -but some. The problem is I think hes married to his job. He says he wants to be home with me once we are mar-ried. But then he says that once his work slows down, he wont earn as much. Im not sure how I can do this, with him work-ing in one state and living in another. Sometimes I wonder if hes really in love with me or if hes stringing me along. How can I be with him if I never see him? If you have any advice for me, please let me know soon. -HEARTS AWAITING DEAR HEARTS AWAITING: If a little voice is telling you this man may be stringing you along, make no hasty deci-sions. Its important that you visit him at his home at least a few times, get to know his friends and fam-ily, if he has any, and see how you would fit in. You also need to decide how you would spend your alone time while hes working. If you are an independent type, youll be able to fill the time. But if youre not, then face the fact that as much as you care for him, youd be miserable. So look CAREFULLY before you leap to the altar. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I am an educated, open-minded, well-spoken, well-man-nered single man. I enjoy life and smile just about every waking moment. My problem is that people -especially women -think Im gay. I assure you, Im not! One woman recently lambasted me, saying her gaydar is never wrong, so I should just admit it to myself. This issue has prohibited me from dating, especially over the last few years, because ladies see me as a peer instead of potential partner. Also, people tell others that Im gay, so there are precon-ceived opinions. Please dont think I am anti-gay. I have several gay male and female friends. I dont think my speech inflections or manner-isms make people assume this. I dont know what to do. Help! -STRAIGHT, BUT NOT NARROW IN ALABAMA DEAR STRAIGHT: Because there appears to be some confusion about your sexual orientation, I recommend you talk frankly with some of your female and male friends and ask what it is about you that has created this impression. Obviously there is something about the way you present your-self thats causing it, and the quickest way to find out what it is would be to ask direct questions of the people who know you best.

By LEE REICHAssociated PressWhat do pine cones and paintings have in common? A 13th century Italian math-ematician named Leonardo of Pisa. Better known by his pen name, Fibonacci, he came up with a number sequence that keeps popping up throughout the plant king-dom, and the art world too. A fibonacci sequence is simple enough to generate: Starting with the number one, you merely add the previous two numbers in the sequence to generate the next one. So the sequence, early on, is 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21 and so on. To see how it works in nature, go outside and find an intact pine cone (or any other cone). Look carefully and youll notice that the bracts that make up the cone are arranged in a spi-ral. Actually two spirals, run-ning in opposite directions, with one rising steeply and the other gradually from the cones base to its tip. Count the number of spirals in each direction a job made easier by dabbing the bracts along one line of each spiral with a colored marker. The number of spi-rals in either direction is a fibonacci number. I just counted 5 parallel spirals going in one direction and 8 parallel spirals going in the opposite direction on a Norway spruce cone. Or you might examine a pineapple. Focus on one of the hexagonal scales near the fruits midriff and you can pick out three spirals, each aligned to a different pair of opposing sides of the hexagon. One set rises gradually, another moder-ately and the third steeply. Count the number of spirals and youll find eight gradual, 13 moderate and 21 steeply rising ones. Fibonacci num-bers again. Scales and bracts are modified leaves, and the spiral arrangements in pine cones and pineapples reflect the spiral growth habit of stems. To confirm this, bring in a leafless stem from some tree or shrub and look at its buds, where leaves were attached. The buds range up the stem in a spiral pattern, which kept each leaf out of the shadow of leaves just above it. The amount of spiraling varies from plant to plant, with new leaves developing in some frac-tion such as 2/5, 3/5, 3/8 or 8/13 of a spi-ral. Eureka, the numbers in those fractions are fibo-nacci numbers! You can determine the fraction on your dormant stem by finding a bud directly above another one, then counting the num-ber of full circles the stem went through to get there while generating buds in between. So if the stems made three full circles to get a bud back where it started and generated eight buds getting there, the fraction is 3/8, with each bud 3/8 of a turn off its neighbor upstairs or downstairs. 6D LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVERTISEMENT SUNDAY, MARCH 10, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-04246DLIFE By KIM COOKAssociated PressNEW YORK In a megabyte-driven world, youd think kids would be playing solely with mega-tech toys. But at the recent Toy Fair 2013 here, buyers gathered like kids on a playground around the booths stocked with the classics wooden play sets and ride-on toys, craft materials, table games and building sets. Retro-style toys for the under-tween crowd are on the upswing, says Adrienne Appell of the Toy Industry Association. Kids may see the unwired stuff as novel; par-ents appreciate having some balance in the toy basket. Heres a look at some of the new offerings, and also which toys are worth hanging onto after kids outgrow them.WHATS NEWBuilding sets including Lego are hotter than ever, according to consum-er market research firm NPD Group. The category grew nearly 20 percent in 2012, the group said. Legos booth at the February fair included new entries in the Lego City and Lego Friends cat-egories, the new Galaxy Squad space fantasy sets, and the DUPLO Read and Build sets, among others. KNex representatives were writing orders for glow-in-the-dark roller-coasters, and construction sets based on Angry Birds, Pac-Man and Super Mario. The manufacturers Robo Battlers allow kids to make smaller figures and stick them together to make a more elaborate creation. And Tinkertoys are turning 100 this year, now rendered in durable high-density plastic. The color-ful components include perennial favorites like rods, spools and washers, as well as some new bend-able pieces. British-based Le Toy Van offered high-end, high-quality, creative-play toys: sustainably produced rubberwood and engi-neered-wood dollhouses, pirate ships and accesso-ries, with accompanying characters. The companys faux food array included petit fours, fine chocolates and croissants. Some toymakers were touting franchises beloved by todays kids parents: board games and figures based on Cabbage Patch Dolls, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Fraggle Rock. There were Bozo the Clown outdoor games. And New York-based Yottoy had old-timey books like Harry the Dog, The Poky Little Puppy and Scuffy the Tugboat paired with plush toys. In arts and crafts, Crayolas booth showed new kits for making cus-tom markers and crayons. Play-Doh demonstrated a new fluffier formula, while at Waba Fun, buyers were elbow-deep in Bubber, a never-dries-out play dough made with hollow ceramic beads and non-toxic poly-mers; Shape-It sand, which can be formed, baked, sculpted and then warmed back into a pile to start again; and Kinetic Sand, another polymer-filled sand.OLDIES BUT GOODIESWhen a kid outgrows them or loses interest, which toys are worth hang-ing onto? Those with sentimental value, perhaps books, dolls or train sets that par-ents dream might one day be passed on to grandchil-dren. And then there are collectibles. I think the ones based on popular movies and shows might have value. Couple that with a brand-name toy and youve got a potential collectible, says Bene Raia of Boston, one of the antiques pickers on PBS Market Warriors. Hard-to-find sets of Star Wars Lego, for instance, are worth big bucks, she says; an out-of-production Rebel Snowspeeder was recently offered online for more than $1,300. And pay attention even to whats in those fast-food bags. One of the biggest surprises in toy collecting is the Happy Meal giveaway, Raia says. Tie-ins to films offer an instant cross-col-lectible, that is, an item of value in more than one collectors marketplace. Whole sets command more on the resale market; a 101 Dalmatians Happy Meal set from McDonalds now sells on eBay for around $100. Raia says many toys from the Baby Boom era are valuable now Louis Marx toy trains, Madame Alexander Cissy dolls from the 1950s, Parachute Jump erector sets from the 40s especially if they have the original boxes and accessories. Thats key: Keep the packaging. Some people will buy two boxes of Lego, one to play with and one to keep, Raia says. It might sound extreme, but for the Star Wars series it might be a good idea. When is it time to get rid of toys? Raia, a mother of four under age 10, says her rule of thumb is simple. Anything that hasnt been played with in the past three or four months, we give away. Classic toys stay popular in digital age FOR THE KIDS ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTOSClassic toys and ones that promote creative, handson play were all the rage at Toy Fair 2013 in New Y ork. Among the big hits were a (above) Star Wars Death Star set from Lego and KNEX Robo Creature assembly kit (below left). Some classic toys, such as the Madame Alexander Cissy doll (below righ t) are worth keeping for their collector value year s down the road. Unwired stuff highly popular at NY toy show.
