By GARY FINEOUTAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE — State lawmakers on Friday sent Gov. Rick Scott a sweep-ing education bill that rolls back graduation standards that just three years ago were hailed as reforms that would help students com-pete globally. Rep. Elizabeth Porter, RLake City, cosponsored the bill as vice-chair of the education committee of the state House of Represen-tatives and a member of the K-12 education subcommittee. The comprehensive bill also would set the stage for the University of Florida to take the lead in online edu-cation in the state by giving the state’s most prestigious university the authority to offer bachelor degrees completely online. House Speaker Will Weatherford contended that the legislation (SB 1076) would transform the state’s schools and predicted legis-lators would remember the unanimous vote in favor of the bill. In 2010, legislators raised the state’s gradua-tion requirements, adding tougher courses in math such as algebra II and sci-ence courses such as chem-istry and physics. The argu-ment at the time was that it would align high school standards to the types of skills that would be needed to attract high-wage jobs in the state. The bill sent to Scott, however, would remove those requirements, which is a position backed by school superintendents. Instead college-bound stu-dents could opt to take By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comFour Rivers Audubon Society could not have pictured a more per-fect day to hold the fourth annual Alligator Lake Spring Festival. Hundreds of people showed up Saturday for the blue skies and the fresh air at Alligator Lake. They also listened to a message of con-servation while enjoying the sun. Tents set up by environmentally conscious vendors lined part of Alligator Lake Recreation Area, 420 SE Alligator Glen. Children tie-dyed T-shirts and hammered on bird houses, Fort White High School students displayed their message of “Recycle, Reduce and Reuse” and plants native to Florida that require little to no water or fertilizer were on sale.

Betty Jefferson, wife of Lake City Councilman Eugene Jefferson, and Linda Ivery “conspired to corruptly influence voting,” submitted false voter registra-tion data, corruptly influenced voting and obtained absentee ballots in violation of the law, according to court documents filed by specially-appointed prosecutor Brian S. Kramer of the Eighth Judicial Circuit. According to the documents, 11 others allegedly conspired with Jefferson and Ivery to violate state election law. The 11 people listed in the document are Angela Barber, Shavon Carter, Verlondrea Carter, Eugene Evans, Eugene Jefferson Jr., Kendria Jones, Allean McNeil, Waitis McNeil, Phyllis Wilson, Clifford Vaughn and Otis Hendon. None of the 11 has been charged with a crime. The 11 individuals, according to the documents, are alleged to have conspired to violate Florida Statute 104.061(1), which says no one shall “by bribery, menace, threat, or other corruption whatsoever, either directly or indirectly, [attempt] to influence, deceive, or deter any elector in voting or [interfere] with him or her CALL US:(386) 752-1293SUBSCRIBE TOTHE REPORTER:Voice: 755-5445Fax: 752-9400 Opinion ................ 4ABusiness ................ 5AObituaries .............. 6A Advice & Comics ......... 8B Puzzles ................. 2B TODAY IN PEOPLE PSY hopes NKorea enjoys his work.

BrightFuturescould go dim Pending cuts will mean fewer kids going to college.By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comColumbia County high schools can expect a dras-tic decrease in students eli-gible for the state’s Bright Futures scholarship as leg-islative changes increase the minimum test score requirement for applicants graduating in the 2013-14 school year. The county’s eligible seniors will drop by approx-imately 30 percent, while the state will see a drop in recipients by about 50 percent, based on data col-lected from the 2011-12 school year. The upcoming changes will hit poor and minority students across the state but also impact highachieving students with low test scores. The predicted numbers are the result of a study by a University of South Florida administrator, J. Robert Spatig. The report exam-ined the potential impact of the hike in the SAT/ACT test score requirement for Bright Futures, which was instituted by in 2011 as part of a strategy to reduce costs by reducing the number of scholarships. “To put so much emphasis on test scores, instead of on four years in the class-room, is misguided,” Spatig said. “I just don’t get it.” For 2014 graduating seniors, the minimum test score requirement for Bright Futures will increase to 26 on the ACT and 1170 for SAT, a significant leap from the current criteria of 22 on the ACT and 1020 on the SAT. A 3.0 high school grade-point average also is needed. Columbia High School has 400 seniors in its 2012-13 graduating class, and Fort White High School has 134. Only 22 students in Columbia County would be eligible for Bright Futures aid if the changes were already in place, instead of the 34 students eligible BRIGHT continued on 6A LAKE continued on 6A BILL continued on 6A March of Dimes A group of sup-porters cross the starting line by Olustee Park in downtown Lake City at the 2013 March of Dimes March for Babies event on Saturday.

AROUND FLORIDA Friday: 13-19-20-43 19 Friday: 7-17-20-31-35 Saturday: Afternoon: 3-3-7 Evening: N/A Saturday: Afternoon: 8-5-7-3 Evening: N/A Saturday: 14-21-24-32-41-45 x5 State begins anti-gambling awareness campaign TALLAHASSEE The gambling outlets known as Internet cafes on Friday became the new poster children of the state of Florida. A Florida Department of Law Enforcement spokes woman announced that the agency was distributing posters and fliers explain ing that the strip-mall casinos are now illegal in the state. The documents explain that those operating or patronizing any of up to 1,000 storefront gambling dens across the state now are subject to criminal prosecution. Enforcement is up to local police and sheriffs. Gale Fontaine, presi dent of the Florida Arcade Association, said the post er will be exhibit A as her group considers filing a lawsuit. Owners of senior arcades in South Florida worry the new law also will lead to their closure. They pay out prizes with gift cards. A perfect example of how misleading and ambiguous this law is can be seen in FDLEs use of the term sweepstakes adult arcades, she said. That terminology has never been used, and is not defined anywhere in Florida law. We believe this new law is ambiguous, confusing and ultimately will be ruled unconstitu tional. The law was a fast reac tion to last months illegalgambling scandal that led to dozens of arrests and Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carrolls resignation. After an investigation into the Allied Veterans of the World charity, it was accused of running a $290 million illegal gambling business that directed most of the proceeds into its owners pockets. That probe has now resulted in at least 57 arrests. 5 people killed in crash off I-95 RIVIERA BEACH Five people, including three teenagers, were killed Saturday in Florida after their car was hit by another vehicle that jolted through an interstate exit ramp, authorities said. The driver of a 2008 Mercedes is believed to have been speeding as he exited Interstate 95 and ran a red light in Riviera Beach, about five miles north of West Palm Beach, shortly after midnight, Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Tim Frith said. Twenty-one-year-old Jabari Kemps vehicle slammed into a 1994 Lexus carrying five people, the youngest 14 and the old est 22. The impact ejected four people from the car. Only one passenger was wearing a seat belt, Frith said. Four of the people in the Lexus were pronounced dead at the scene. A fifth died after being taken to a nearby hospital. Zimmermans mom pens letter SANFORD The mother of Florida neigh borhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman has written a letter to the pub lic that criticizes the jus tice system for her sons arrest in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin. Gladys Zimmermans letter was written to coin cide with the one-year anniversary of her sons April 11, 2012, arrest. Hes accused of killing Martin, who was unarmed, in February 2012. The letter was written in Spanish and trans lated by her son, Robert Zimmerman. He released it on his Twitter account. Gladys Zimmerman says the day will forever be remembered by the Zimmerman family as the day the justice system failed us as Americans. She describes what she calls a false narrative that was developed as the heavily publicized case unfolded. Zimmerman is sched uled to be tried on seconddegree murder charges in June. Students treated for overdoses MIAMI A 22-year-old South Florida man was arrested after nine Miami Coral Park Senior High students became ill after eating brownies at school. The Miami Herald reports Miami-Dade Fire Rescue was called to the school Thursday after receiving calls about pos sible overdoses. School districts officials say the students were taken to local hospitals, mostly as a precaution ary measure. Spokesman John Schuster says a 10th grader was treated and released at the school. Authorities say Dionisio Lockridge was charged with possession of cocaine, Xanax and marijuana with intent to sell after finding drugs and brownies. Bus driver charged with sexual battery of child TAMPA A school bus driver in Tampa has been charged with sexual bat tery of a child. The Tampa Police Department reports 29year-old Dacquiri Jermaine Crawford was arrested Friday. Crawford is a bus driver with the Hillsborough County School District. Investigators say Crawford grabbed a 12year-old boy as he was walking home behind Blake High School in Tampa Thursday eve ning. He allegedly forced the boy down near the Hillsborough River and assaulted him. The victim ran home and his mother called 911. Police arrested the sus pect when he returned to the location of the offense around the same time on Friday. Crawford has been charged with the sexual battery and trespassing on school property. SEOUL, South Korea S outh Korean rapper PSY says he hopes North Koreans will enjoy his new single even as tensions remain high on the Korean Peninsula. PSY released his latest single, Gentleman, in 119 countries on Friday, hoping to replicate the suc cess of Gangnam Style, the smash YouTube hit that made him an international star almost overnight last year. The choreography for Gentleman including the arro gant dance, as PSY called it was unveiled at a concert in Seoul on Saturday before more than 50,000 fans. The music video has been uploaded onto YouTube. PSY, whose real name is Park Jaesang, said Saturday that he regretted the current tensions between the two Koreas. The situation has been grabbing global headlines, with North Korea becoming increasingly belligerent with war rumblings, leav ing its neighbors wary of a possible missile test by Pyongyang. Its a tragedy. We are the only countries divided right now, PSY said at a news conference ahead of the concert. North and South Korea, which are divided by heavily fortified borders, are technically still at war, with the 1950-53 Korean War ending with a cease-fire, not a peace treaty. PSY said he hoped North Koreans would enjoy his new music. He said his job was to make all people, including North Koreans, laugh. Jonathan Winters, man of many faces, dies LOS ANGELES Jonathan Winters was a crowd all by himself, guaranteeing that his multitude of characters, breakneck improvisa tions and kinetic clownishness kept generations of fans laughing. Winters, who died Thursday at age 87 at his Montecito, Calif., home, was a pioneer of improvisational standup comedy, with an exceptional gift for mimicry, a grab bag of eccen tric personalities and a bottomless reservoir of creative energy. Facial contortions, sound effects, tall tales all could be sum moned in a matter of seconds to get a laugh. The humor most often was based in reality his charac ters Maude Frickert and Elwood P. Suggins, for example, were based on people Winters knew growing up in Ohio. Robin Williams and Jim Carrey are his best-known followers. Rebel Wilson prepares to open MTV Awards CULVER CITY, Calif. Rebel Wilson sings, dances and summons laughs and thats just in the open ing moments of this weekends MTV Movie Awards. The Australian actress is hosting the show, and shes set to start the ceremony by singing solo. Wilson and her co-stars from Pitch Perfect rehearsed a multigenre opening medley Friday that features Wilson spoofing last years films and spinning nunchucks.

Associated PressNEW ORLEANS — The U.S. Department of Agriculture says a Louisiana-based meat packing com-pany has expanded a recall of meat products because of possible bacterial contami-nation. No illnesses have been reported The Manda Packing Co. recall announced this past week now includes 468,000 pounds of roast beef, ham, turkey breast, tasso pork, ham shanks, hog head-cheese, corned beef, and pastrami. The agriculture department said Friday the prod-ucts were recalled because of possible contamination with Listeria monocyto-genes. The products were shipped to retailers in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas. The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service list-ed eight types of meat sold under 41 different names with various “sell by” dates. Its news release said some of the products may have been sliced at retail delis, and if so will not bear pack-aging information. A statement posted Saturday on company’s website says the recalled meats were produced at Manda’s facility in Baker, La. between Feb. 27 and April 9. The USDA said eating food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncom-mon but potentially fatal disease. “Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis,” the statement said. But it can be serious and sometimes fatal for those with weak-ened immune systems.From staff reportsTwo drug busts Friday led to the arrests of two men and two women plus the seizure of a .38-caliber handgun, drugs and cash, according to a news release from the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office. The Multi Jurisdictional Task Force, composed of Columbia County depu-ties and agents from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, served two search warrants on Friday. Members of the task force searched a room at the Columbia Motel, 1949 E. Duval St., at about 4:15 p.m. Friday. According to the release, the search was the result of a lengthy undercover inves-tigation by the task force. Law enforcement officers found five grams of crack cocaine, six grams of oxy-codone and eight grams of Xanax, accord-ing to the release. As a result of the search, Randly L. Spencer, 47, and Elizabeth M. Leonard, 28, were arrested. Spencer and Leonard both were charged with trafficking in oxycodone, possession of cocaine with intent to sell, sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of a controlled substance with the intent to sell, the release said. Spencer also was charged with violation of conditional release from prison, accord-ing to the release. The state Depart-ment of Correc-tions released Spencer from prison in March after he had served 21 years of a 22-year prison sentence for sec-ond-degree murder. Both were taken to the Columbia County Detention Facility. Spencer was not issued a bond. Leonard’s bond was set at $201,000. The task force served another search warrant at a Fort White home. The task force found 28 grams of crystal methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, more than $1,000 in cash and a .38-caliber handgun in the Fort White raid, according to the release. Two occupants of the house attempted to flee, but law enforcement caught both inside the house, the release said. Henry F. Geiger, 25, and Donna S. Simonsen, of 14852 SW Tustenuggee Ave. in Fort White, both were charged with posses-sion of a firearm by a con-victed felon, trafficking in methamphetamine, sale of methamphetamine, posses-sion of marijuana and pos-session of drug parapher-nalia, the release said. Both were booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $102,000 bond. The Multi Jurisdictional Task Force was assisted by the Lake City Police Department and the fed-eral Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comColumbia County Commissioner Stephen Bailey recently joined the county’s CARC-Advocates for Citizens with Disabilities as the executive director of the organization. “I’m excited to be a part of the CARC, and I’m look-ing forward to continuing the great work the CARC does in our community,” Bailey said. On Tuesday, CARC will hold a presen-tation recog-nizing the best bowlers from the 20th Annual Bowl-A-Thon in March. The team and individual with the high-est score will be acknowl-edged at the CARC offices, 512 SW Sisters Welcome Road. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comWELLBORN — A Lake City couple was arrested on grand theft charges after they allegedly stole more than $79,000 from two Wellborn organizations. The couple is accused of writing checks to themselves while the woman was employed as treasurer for the organiza-tions. Paul Andrew Greek Jr., 55, and Teresa Andrews Greek, 56, both of 1413 SW Dekle Road, were each charged with one count of grand theft. Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Ron Colvin said the Greeks turned themselves in to the Suwannee County Jail Wednesday after an arrest warrant was issued. Paul Greek allegedly received a total of $19,897 from checks writ-ten to him by his wife from accounts of the two organizations. Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office reports say that between June 29, 2011, and Aug. 26, 2012, while Teresa Greek was employed as the treasurer of the Wellborn Water System Inc., her husband accepted and cashed 25 checks that were made pay-able to him totaling $19,347. In addition from July 5, 2011, to April 28, 2012, while Teresa Greek was employed as the treasurer of the Wellborn Volunteer Fire Department, Paul Greek accepted and cashed two checks totaling $550, the report say. Mrs. Greek is also accused of writing checks to herself. Reports stated that between June 29, 2011, and Aug. 26, 2012, she made 62 unauthorized financial transactions from the organizations totaling $56,155. Six of the transactions were direct debit withdrawals, 29 checks were made pay-able to herself, 25 checks were written to her husband and one to another party. The arrest reports also say that from July 5, 2011, through April 28, 2012, Mrs. Greek allegedly made five unauthorized financial transactions totaling $2,995 from the fire department’s account. Three of the checks were made payable to herself and two were made to her husband. Pasco Jarvis, president of the Wellborn Water System Inc., who is also a certi-fied water plant operator, said the water system has been in business since 1975. Wellborn is an unincorporated commu-nity and the utility is a private entity, owned by its members. The system has 180 to 200 members, who pay membership fees. It has about 200 metered water taps and conducts 180 to 190 meter readings a month, Jarvis said. Approximately 98 percent of the people in the Wellborn community utilize the system. Jarvis said the theft could have a adverse impact on the system’s operations. “We’ll still operate, but it (theft) knocks our funds down to a very minimum,” he said. “We discovered this back in September 2012. So, we’ve been able to keep our heads above the water. If we were to have a major breakdown now, we may have to make a loan to do the repairs, but hopefully that won’t happen.” Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER NEWS SUNDAY, APRIL 14, 2013 3A3A 934 NE Lake DeSoto Circle, Lake City, FL(Next to Courthouse) Needs Temporary&HUWLHG'HQWDO$VVLVWDQW • Starting June (approx. 3 mo.) • Able to work evenings • Work 1/2 day Saturdays Fax Resume386-752-8601 CONSPIRACY: 11 linked Continued From Page 1ACouple charged with theft of $79,000 Teresa Greek Paul Greek Lake City pair allegedly stole funds from two Wellborn organizations.

The court documents further allege Betty Jefferson “did willfully procure” Charles Bowen to swear falsely in con-nection with the casting of a ballot. Bowen has not been charged with a crime. Jefferson and Ivery surrended to authorities at the Columbia County Detention Facility Tuesday and were released on their own recognizance. Eighth Circuit State Attorney William P. Cervone was appointed by Gov. Rick Scott to pros-ecute the case. According to the documents, Jefferson and Ivery also submitted false voter registration infor-mation concerning regis-tration data and illegally requested absentee bal-lots or helped someone else illegally request bal-lots during the 2010 pri-mary election.

L ast week I was shocked and saddened to drive by the house I was born and grew up in and see it had been demolished. Nothing left. Just a level piece of ground where our homestead used to be. I knew it was coming — all the other old neighborhood houses had already been leveled — but still it was a shock. It was like having a loved one in hospice and you know they are going to die but you are still shocked when it actually hap-pens. I had to walk away quickly. The sight of our old family home gone forever was just too painful for me. I went home, got a folding chair, and drove out to the Bethel United Methodist Church cemetery and sat by my parents’ graves for a while. While I sat, a flood of old memories of growing up in that home went through my mind. •Sunday dinners when our family of eight sat together and we always had fried chicken, fresh vegetables, biscuits or cornbread, and pound cake. The chickens came from our chicken yard and the vegetables came from our garden. The biscuits and pound cake were Momma’s own creation, baked to delicious perfection on our old wood stove. Family together! •Sitting on our long front porch in the evening helping Momma and her neighborhood friends shell peas and butterbeans while talking family stories and town news. •Watching my parents’ daily strain of having three sons, Howard, Ernest, and Jimmy, all in World War II war zones, gone for more than three years. •Sitting around our big kitchen table in the evening when friends of my five older siblings would come by and visit and talk for hours — and all the while my Daddy would sit quietly through all the youthful babbling and read the daily newspaper. •Watching my teenage sister Betty save every penny she made working at the drug store or McCrory’s or the phone com-pany, dreaming to someday go to “airline hostess” school --and she did. Then she got her first job with Ozark Air Lines. •Standing in our brand new “shower bath” and feeling hot water — hot water! — falling on my little shoulders and wondering if I had gone to Heaven. I talked to my parents’ graves and told them I was sorry I had not been able to save the big old house they had worked so long to pay for, that I had tried hard but just couldn’t do it. Then I left. I won’t be going by that empty lot where our home used to be anytime soon. It will just be too painful. My Grandma English always said in times of loss, “The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away.

OPINION Sunday, April 14, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A Lake City Reporter Serving Columbia County Since 1874 The Lake City Reporter is published with pride for residents of Columbia and surrounding coun-ties by Community Newspapers Inc. 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 F lorida Leaders Organized for Water has failed in its mission to create a regional coalition to preserve our most precious natural resource. Columbia County should withdraw from FLOW and work on its own, or in a more limited partnership, to save our rivers, streams, lakes and springs. Formed in late 2011 with a $250,000 check from the Columbia County Commission, FLOW never came close to accomplishing its goals. The problem grew out of what was supposed to be the group’s strength – its numbers. Galvanized by the St. Johns River Water Management District’s grant of a 20-year permit to JEA to take 155 million gallons of water a day from the Floridan aquifer, outraged area residents banded together, in hopes that, as a group, they could match the political clout of those who would lay waste to our landscape for short-term gain. However, it turned out not everyone who signed up for FLOW was pulling in the same direction. First, no one wanted to help with the bills. Our county commission offered up another $250,000 for the cur-rent year, in hopes others would finally lend a hand with expenses. It didn’t happen. Beyond token contributions from a couple of well-meaning towns too small to give much more, no one has pitched in to help. That’s not the worst of it, though.Not only are few FLOW board members helping, some may actually be working against the aims of the gro up. “You can’t serve two masters,” FLOW chairman and Columbia County Commissioner Ron Williams rightly admonished at more than one meeting. While FLOW was not formed as an adversary to the Suwannee River Water Management District, it was meant to function as a watchdog to make sure the dis-trict did not take – or allow others to take – actions det-rimental to the public interest. It is not clear to us that every FLOW board member understands that role. Williams had planned a special meeting of FLOW for yesterday to try to get the group on track and work-ing toward a common goal. It was the last hope FLOW could be salvaged. Instead, only seven of FLOW’s 19 members committed to attend, and the meeting was canceled due to lack of interest. That’s the last straw, in our view.If the majority of our fellow FLOW members won’t even attempt to set things right, there seems little point in worrying too much more about it. Williams will make a report and recommendation at Thursday’s county commission meeting. We urge com-missioners to withdraw support for this failed experi-ment. That doesn’t mean we have to go it completely alone, however. The Ichetucknee Partnership, which has teamed up with the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce, remains a powerful force in raising public awareness of the plight of local waterways and springs. Beyond that, a smaller coalition of like-minded members actually willing to work toward a common goal is still possible. All of that remains to be worked out.Regardless, the time has come to end our affiliation with FLOW. What seemed like a fine idea at the time has proven to be anything but.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com O ur first thought on reading that an Iranian inventor had devised a time machine that could project the user five to eight years into the future was that the inventor had got it backward and come up with some-thing that projected his country, at least as currently governed, five to eight centuries into the past. According to Iran’s Fars news service, Tehran inventor Ali Razeghi, said to have 179 other inventions to his credit, patented “The Aryayek Time Traveling Machine” with the country’s Center for Strategic Inventions. Razeghi, 27, said he had been working on the device for 10 years. It can predict wars, cur-rency fluctuations, oil prices and preserve dictatorships, which he sees as a natural market. The machine, the inventor said modestly, “satisfies all the needs of human society,” and the only reason he hasn’t gone into pro-duction with it is his fear that the Chinese will steal his idea. The story quickly went viral, but the world’s press ridiculed it, often illustrating with shots of Christopher Lloyd as the mad scientist with his DeLorean time machine in “Back To The Future.” The time machine, as time machines are wont to do, abruptly disappeared from Fars’ website. Maybe the embarrassed editors took it down or maybe it went off to visit 2023. In 10 years, we’ll know. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Q Scripps Howard News Service.

The governor and the legislature have proposed various raises for employees this year. Well these are all done to increase re-election pros-pects. After taking 3 percent from FRS employees’ meager pay, the governor and legislature probably view their re-election prospects as grim. Good, this is the way it should be! Nonetheless they will still try to hoodwink a sufficient number of FRS employees to gain favor with them before the election, especially the teachers which number over 100,000 in Florida! State employees do not earn an automatic Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA). This means that we lose about 3 percent to inflation each and every year. An employee earn-ing $40K in 2006 with no COLA for 7 years would lose about $9,000 to inflation during this time! So anything that the legislature and governor have proposed is “chump change.” And since they took 3 percent from our pay, this means we now effectively lose over 6 percent annu-ally, which is very significant! The $40K employee will lose over $20K the next 7 years due to inflation and contribution – a 50 percent decrease in purchasing power! Sadly, most employees are unaware of this situ-ation! This legislature and this governor are nobody’s friend. They are not concerned about us. They want to be re-elected, to keep their jobs. The reality of what state employees earn is presented above – every year we work without a COLA we lose ground financially. And when the state takes part of the little we do earn, we have been pilfered! So, how is Florida not the screw you state? Howard F.

tougher courses and earn a high school diploma that includes a “scholar” des-ignation. Students would also be allowed to take career education courses or enroll in work-related internships. The new measure would also remove requirements to pass end-of-course tests in biology and geometry in order to earn a diploma. Instead the tests would count as 30 percent of a student’s final grade. Weatherford — who championed a measure to tie teacher pay to student performance — rejected any criticism that the new bill was watering down the current standards. He and other supporters — including Democrats — insisted that they were redesigning high school standards to give different options to students who may not be interested in pursuing a college degree. Porter said the bill reforms Florida’s gradua-tion requirements so that the school system is no longer a “one size fits all” for students. She said sometimes students have goals that do not include attending a uni-versity after graduation. “Up to this point, all students had to take the same courses regardless of what their goals were,” Porter said. She said the education committee reached across the aisle and “really did there homework” before bringing the bill to the floor. Porter said the bill will still allow students to prepare for college, but the bill will also prepare students that want to go directly into the work place. “We did a lot of research, and we listened to all the stakeholders,” Porter said. The bill passed the in the House of Representatives unanimously. “Whether that child wants to be a brain surgeon or a Mercedes mechanic, this takes care of them,” Porter said. The House passed the bill with a unanimous vote. The Florida Senate passed the legislation earlier this week by a 33-7 vote. Scott has not said how he will act on the bill. A spokeswoman said Friday he would review the bill. Lake City Reporter staff writer Derek Gilliam contrib-uted to this story.under current regula-tions, according to coun-ty-by-county data from the 2011-12 school year in the USF study. Baker County’s eligible students would drop from 17 to 9; Dixie County from 4 to 2; Gilchrist County from 12 to 8; Suwannee County from 16 to 12; and Union County from 1 to 0. Under the tougher regulations, about one-third of the students statewide entering University of North Florida in 2014, two-thirds of Florida State stu-dents and three-quarters of University of Florida stu-dents would still qualify for Bright Futures. Since its launch, Bright Futures has worked to encourage student achieve-ment, attempting to stop the “brain drain” of Florida’s brightest students leaving the state for major universi-ties. The scholarships are funded by the state lottery. Based on research, Spatig said the rural areas will be as deeply affected by the change as urban envi-ronments. He said there is a correlation between test scores and socioeconomic status. “Suburban kids score the highest,” he said. “It doesn’t matter what race, ethnicity or gender.” Florida funds schools based on how many students participate in college-level courses, such as Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate Program and Dual-Enrollment. But the new test score requirement rerwards students who test well but don’t succeed in the classrooms — the students who didn’t participate in advanced classes, Spatig said. Students earning A’s in college-level classes and 4.0 GPAs — who are pre-dicted to do well in college — suffer when they score 20 points too low on the SAT. “They’re basically taking the under-achieving, high-scoring students over the high-achieving students,” Spatig said. “This is com-municating the wrong mes-sage.” He believes it is investing the limited Bright Futures funds in the wrong direc-tion, and the new rules could once again create a “brain drain” of high-achieving students look-ing for affordable educa-tion outside of the state of Florida where merit money is available. “You’re going to keep a lot of slackers in the state,” he said. Linda Croley, vice president for student services at Florida Gateway College, said FGC will most likely be affected the same way other universities and col-leges in the state are — a 60 percent drop in minori-ties eligible for Bright Futures and a 50 percent drop overall. But, students may flock to local colleges, like FGC, as an alternative to higher-priced state uni-versities. “There’s the possibility that when the schol-arships are removed, parents and students will seek out affordable qual-ity education, and we have that here at FGC,” she said. “We certainly would welcome them.” Currently, FGC’s fulltime enrollment is 2,500, with 300 students on Bright Futures. The college is fed mostly by Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist and Union coun-ties. FGC charges about $103 per credit hour, with each class consisting of three credit hours. “Some of the universities have a higher percentage of their students on Bright Futures,” Croley said. “Although our numbers are smaller, the change will be significant.” Croley said the college’s financial aid department will be working hard to pro-vide as many scholarships to students as possible. Students and parents who are concerned about the upcoming changes should start communicating with the college of their choice about financial aid now, she said. “There are many ways to afford college at this time,” said Kay Dekle, assistant principal at Columbia High School. “Bright Futures is just one avenue.” 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, APRIL14, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-04246A SPECIALIZING IN:Q Non-Invasive Laparoscopic Gynecological SurgeryQ Adolescent Gynecology Q High and Low Risk Obstetrics Q Contraception Q Delivering at Shands Lake Shore Q In-Ofce ultrasounds for our patients Q 3D/4D Entertainment Scans New Patients Welcome Call today for a personal appointment:386-755-0500 449 SE Baya Drive Lake City, Florida 32025 www.dainagreenemd.com“WE ARE WOMEN, WE ARE MOTHERS, WE UNDERSTAND”Board Certied Healthcare Provider?K>>ik^`gZg\rm^lmlbgma^h_\^Zg] offering DaVinci Robotic Surgeries.

By BILL KACZOR Associated Press TALLAHASSE Changes under Republican Gov. Rick Scott are making it more difficult for Floridas former felons to get their voting rights restored, which critics say has sup pressed the minority vote and hurt Democratic can didates. As one of his first actions after taking office in 2011, Scott, as chairman of the Florida Board of Executive Clemency, undid automatic restoration of voting rights for nonviolent ex-offend ers that previous Gov. Charlie Crist helped adopt in 2007. Since then, the number of former felons who have had their voting rights restored has slowed to a trickle, even compared with the year before Crist and the clemency board helped make the process easier. Civil liberties activists say Floridas rights resto ration rules are the most restrictive in the nation and have the effect, if not the intent, of suppressing the minority vote. A disproportionate num ber of black Floridians are convicted felons 16.5 percent of Floridians are black, yet black inmates make up 31.5 percent of the states prison popula tion meaning a higher percentage of AfricanAmericans dont have the right to vote after complet ing their sentences. And black voters tend to support Democrats. Exit polls show only one in 10 supported Scott in the 2010 election. Desmond Meade is among the former felons who cannot vote in Florida because their civil rights havent been restored although theyve completed their sentences, often many years ago. It weakens the politi cal voice in the AfricanAmerican community, said Meade, who is black. Therefore, the plight of African-Americans becomes basically a politi cal non-factor. Thats exactly how it was planned, say some critics, who believe the Republican effort to make voting rights restoration more difficult is politically motivated. This is one of the few government programs that has worked precisely as it was designed, namely to try to suppress the vote of as many African-Americans as possible, said Howard Simon, executive director of the ACLU of Florida. It was designed that way in 1868, and it contin ues to have that effect in 2013, he said. Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & STATE SUNDAY APRIL 14, 2013 7A 7 Dr. Robert J.

She also served as private house keeper for the late Mrs. Annette Jackson, and she and her family were con sidered one of the family by both families. Mrs. Brady says, Times were hard back then, but we survived by planting our own vegetables and killing our own animals for meat. We didnt have much, but we survived because of the love that we shared with God and our family. She is a member of Bethel A.M.E. Church of Lake City, located in the Bethel Settlement. She presently serves as stewardess emeritus. Her favorite Bible verse is the 23rd Psalm. Her favorite Hymn is Jesus Keep Me near the Cross.

March for Babies COURTESY Columbia County native and lifelong resident Mrs. Alice Glenn Brady celebrated her 100th birthday anniversary on Saturday. Alice Glenn Brady celebrates 100th birthday milestone House passes $74.4B budget with broad bipartisan support By BRANDON LARRABEE The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE The state House overwhelm ingly approved a $74.4 bil lion budget for the coming fiscal year on Friday, set ting up negotiations with the Senate that could be eased by the brightest state revenue picture in years. The broadly bipartisan, 99-17 House vote was an anomaly after years of bit ter fighting about how to cut budgets in a drearier economic climate. Just days after staking out a partywide position against the spending plan a position that was later lifted 25 Democrats broke with their party leadership to support the measure. One Republican, Rep. John Tobia of Melbourne Beach, voted against the budget. For House leaders, it was a chance to join their Senate counterparts in crowing about a united chamber as they head into talks about the final blueprint for the bud get year that begins July 1. It does show that the chair man and the Republican majority did work hard to try to make this budget one that was bipartisan, and were very proud of that, House Speaker Will Weather-ford, R-Wesley Chapel, said after Fridays session as he stood next to Appropriations Chairman Seth McKeel, R-Lakeland. House Minority Leader Perry Thurston, D-Fort Lauderdale, shrugged off the defections of more than half of his membership. When you have the highest budget youve had in the past six or seven years, that means theres money to go around to our core constituents, as well as maybe projects that they think are important for the state of Florida, Thurston said. Republicans laid the groundwork for the biparti san vote on Thursday, when they released an alternative to the optional Medicaid expansion contained in the federal Affordable Care Act. Democrats have gener ally dismissed the House GOP plan as inadequate, especially when compared to proposals by Gov. Rick Scott and the Senate, but said getting the House to reveal any plan was enough of a victory to drop a caucus position against the budget. Thurston said House Republicans should not doubt his partys resolve on pushing for a broader health-care plan. Simply because some people voted for the budget doesnt mean that theres any less of a united front when it comes to providing health care for the mostneedy Floridians, he said. The focus will now swing to a series of meetings over the final three weeks of the annual session, as House and Senate negotiators will have to hammer out an agreement on a budget. Republican leaders antici pate being able to start those discussions as soon as next week, meaning that the final amounts for each portion of the budget would be set in the next few days. I dont see a whole lot of stumbling blocks, Weatherford said. I think that were very close. If you look at the House and Senate budgets, its about as close as theyve been in quite some time. There are some dis agreements. For example, the Senate would set aside $480 million for increases in teacher pay, one of the bigticket items in the spending plan and a top priority of Gov. Rick Scott; the House would add $676 million in education funding with a strong suggestion that it be used for teacher pay raises. Both chambers have their own formula for changing how hospitals are paid for care under Medicaid. And neither side has decided how to spend all of the money set aside for tax cuts, including whether to eliminate the sales tax on manufacturing equipment, another one of Scotts goals for this year. The gover nor used his weekly radio address to prod lawmakers on the proposal again. We need to level the playing field to compete for manufacturing jobs, Scott said. For Florida families to succeed, we must build up our manufacturing jobs in Florida. Plan differs from Senate version in key details. Weatherford State tough on ex-felon voting rights

Man in blue By TIM KIRBY tkirby@lakecityreporter.com Like his police counter parts, Leo Fleming wears blue. He patrols the soft ball diamond. Fleming, 52, a Union County High graduate who lives in Lake City, is a high school official in volleyball, basketball and softball. In softball he has advanced to the Division 1 ranks. I just love softball, to be on the field and part of the action, Fleming said. It is a great game and we work hard. Fleming is in the midst of a stretch that began on April 1 in which he will umpire 21 days straight. Last week he worked tele vised games of Florida vs. South Florida and Florida State vs. Virginia. He will also umpire Columbia High and Fort White High games during the three weeks. Fleming came for the interview with a fistful of lineup cards that he saves as souvenirs. Working high school games keeps Fleming sharp for his college Fleming is an umpire for five conferences. FLEMING continued on 5B JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Columbia Highs Kayli Kvistad makes a throw to first after recording a force out at second against Madison County High. Lady Tigers enter district as No. 1 seed By BRANDON FINLEY bfinley@lakecityreporter.com Columbia High capped off the regular season with a 6-3 win at Madison County High on Friday and now the Lady Tigers will turn their attention to the postseason. Head coach Jimmy Williams said it was a lit tle tougher than the Lady Tigers would have liked to close out the season, but there were still some shin ing moments. We were all right at the plate, but we left too many runners in scoring posi tion, he said. Defensively it wasnt our best game, but Hollianne (Dohrn) gunned two runners out at second to get us out of a jam. Columbia never trailed in the game after scoring two runs in the first inning. Keeley Murray drove in Lacey King and Brittany Morgan with a double to score the runs. Tatum Morgan added a two-run homer in the fifth inning to score Kayli Kvistad and give the Lady Tigers a 4-2 lead. Columbia would add one run in each of the last two innings. Brittany Morgan singled and stole second before Murray singled her in. Brandy Morgan walked in the seventh inning, stole second and Emily Harvey singled to give Columbia the 6-3 final. Erin Anderson and Ashley Shoup split time on the mound in the win. Shoup went 3 2 3 innings, struck out two batters, allowed three hits and walked a batter. Anderson went 3 1 3 innings, issued three walks, struck out two batters and allowed three hits. Now the Lady Tigers turn their eyes toward the District 4-6A tournament.

We’re pretty focused on being so close last year that they want to go ahead and seal the deal this year before we change district next year.” A win in the tournament would set the Lady Tigers up well for the postseason with a slate of home games for the playoffs. “We’re looking forward to hosting some playoff games,” Williams said. “With our crowd, if we can get some crowd support, that’ll help get us to the regional finals again. It seems like we win every other year. I told the junior class, they’d be one the first to go the playoffs.” But to get to the postseason, Columbia must first take care of things on Tuesday. Williams seems to think the Lady Tigers will meet the Lady Generals. “I think Lee will probably win the game,” he said. “They have a group of seniors that have been playing together. Their pitcher is pretty good actu-ally. She’s the heart and soul of their team.” And what makes Columbia the favorite as the No. 1 seed to defeat Lee and reach the champio-ship? “Really, our defense has played a large part of our success,” Williams said. “We’ve had a lot of shut-outs and that relates back to pitching. We’ve had time-ly hits and we’re having girls getting hot at the right time. They’re playing with a lot of confidence. They feel like they’re one of the better teams in the area. We’ve played some really tough competition.” But who will meet the Lady Tigers in that game? “I think Atlantic Coast is probably the favor-ite,” Williams said. “St. Augustine has a first-year coach. Atlantic Coast has a senior pitcher that could be the player of the year out of Jacksonville. During the regular season, one of their best players was hurt. They’ll have her back and be a little bet-ter team than people have seen. Playing on their home field is a big advan-tage.” Williams seems to believe that the Lady Tigers are ready for whatever chal-lenge is to come. Our schedule has us ready to make a good deep run,” Williams said. “I think the girls just want it. For some reason, they can walk out there and have a you’re not going to beat me atti-tude. We have a good mix of speed and girls that hit the long ball. Our catcher is as good as any around. Our pitching, we have experi-ence after both pitched in the district last year. That’s one of the best things we have going for us. They’ve had to pitch against quality hitters and quality teams.”Fort White softballThe regular season for Fort White High softball came to an end with a 5-2 loss at Union County High on Thursday. Fort White fell to 315, while Union County improved to 15-6. Sydney Walker had a pair of hits for the Lady Indians and scored a run. Jordyn Driggers (double, RBI) and Ashlyn Harden (RBI, two runs scored) each had two hits for the Lady Tigers. Holly Tucker was the winning pitcher. Fort White is hosting the District 5-4A tournament, which begins Tuesday. Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for students. Interlachen High plays Santa Fe High in the 5 p.m. game, followed by Fort White vs. Williston High at 7 p.m. COURTESY PHOTOJunior varsity team finished 3rdColumbia High’s Lady Tigers junior varsity softball tea m finished third in the Doc4Life Tournament in Ocala last week. Woods stays in contention despite 2-stroke penalty By PAUL NEWBERRYAssociated PressAUGUSTA, Ga. — Tiger Woods dropped two strokes at the Masters before he even hit a shot Saturday, and he still has a chance to wear another green jacket. Woods shot a 2-under 70 in the third round at Augusta National, shaking off a two-stroke penalty assessed before he went out to the first tee. When he walked off the 18th green after sinking a testy par putt, he was four strokes off the lead. It could have been better. And worse. At least he didn’t get disqualified. Augusta National gave Woods a reprieve, ruling an improper drop Friday should result in a two-shot penalty instead of getting him kicked out of the tournament. He said it was the right decision, even though some called for him to withdraw for signing an improper scorecard. “I’m abiding by the rules,” said Woods, who was at 3-under 213. “I made a mis-take under the rules of golf. I took an improper drop, and I got the penalty.” Brandt Snedeker and Angel Cabrera are tied for the lead at 7 under, while Aussies, Adam Scott, Jason Day and Marc Leishman, are all within two shots. On moving day at Augusta, no one made much of a move, setting up quite a shootout on Sunday. This day will be remembered for the penalty against Woods, which sure stirred up plenty of debate on social media. Some fel-low golfers claimed Woods got special treatment and others noted it came one day after 14-year-old Guan Tianlang was penalized a stroke for slow play, nearly causing him to miss the cut. “I think (Woods) should WD (withdraw). He took a drop to gain an advantage,” tweeted David Duval, once Woods’ top rival. Others said it was the right decision. “I know he didn’t do anything malicious or was trying to gain an advantage or any-thing like that,” Nick Watney said. “I’m sure he feels ter-rible about it and I believe 100 percent that he didn’t do anything on purpose.”

Register at columbia youthsoccerassociation. com From staff reports schedule, where is has been selected as an offi cial by the Southeastern Conference, Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, Peach Belt Conference, Atlantic Sun Conference and, most recently, the Atlantic Coast Conference. I have called four high school championship games, so now I sit back and let others get a shot at that, Fleming said. I have been blessed to be selected by five different organiza tions. Fleming has been picked to umpire in the ASA 18 National Championship in Tallahassee in August and the Colorado Sparkler tour nament in July. A lot of girls remem ber me from travel ball and that makes you feel good, Fleming said. When they see me the girls start smiling because they know they are getting a fair game. Fleming was calling a game at South Alabama, where former CHS player Stephanie Pilkington plays. All of Lake City was there and they called, Leo, Fleming said. (Pilkington) said you followed me up here, but I said, no, I was here first. Fleming bring his profes sionalism to games at all levels, but said major col lege ball is different. The game is about 10 times faster, Fleming said. The girls know the game and respect great umpires. All you have to do is man age a game. Thats the good thing about it. Fleming gave calling balls and strikes as an example. The D-1 strike zone is a big difference, Fleming said. What you would call a strike zone in high school in high school or junior col lege would get you fired in D-1. Well, maybe not fired, but you would get put on the back burner. You have the bank, the river and the plate. You dont call the river bank, but you call the corner of the plate. A batter has just as much right as a pitcher. Scrutiny is high in D-1. You are re-evaluated every game and every year, Fleming said. You are always being watched, not only by fans but your peers and assignors. Rule interpretation is real big. You have to take a test every year and score at least 96. The big blow-ups you see in Major League Baseball are rare in college softball. Potential problems are dif fused by quiet discussions. The coordinators back us up pretty good, Fleming said. We try to keep all the coaches and players in the game. I have never tossed someone in D-1 and I call 70-112 games per year. Fleming actually began umpiring Babe Ruth Baseball when he was 12 years old. After high school he got into bodybuilding and powerlifting, and recently retired after 31 years in the Army National Guard. He returned to officiating in the early 1990s. I was calling high school and a friend said you ought to try college, Fleming said. Coach (Jim) Webb used to have those big tournaments (at Lake City Community College) and he let me call. My first D1 camp was in Rock Hill, S.C. We have umpire clin ics in New Orleans every January, then we bombard Bourbon Street. Fleming suggests all young athletes look into officiating. All kids from 16 on in sports should get involved, Fleming said. You learn the game, respect the game and deal with a lot of pres sure. You can make good money. Fleming deals with assignors from Virginia, New Orleans and Atlanta. He is sent a plane ticket for games, but prefers to drive. I am there for the game and like the money, Fleming said.

By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER AP Economics Writer WASHINGTON The number of Americans seek ing unemployment benefits fell sharply last week to a seasonally adjusted 346,000, signaling that the job mar ket might be stronger than Marchs weak month of hir ing suggested. Applications for unem ployment aid dropped 42,000 last week, the Labor Department said Thursday. The decline nearly reversed an increase over the previ ous three weeks. The fourweek average, a less vola tile measure, rose 3,000 to 358,000. The number of unem ployment applications has been volatile in the past two weeks largely because of the Easter holiday, a department spokesman said. The timing of the holi day changes from year to year. That makes it hard to adjust for school holidays and other changes that can cause temporary layoffs. Applications had risen two weeks ago to 388,000, the highest level in four months. That spike appears to have been a false alarm, Jim OSullivan, chief U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics, said in a note to clients.

Tax deadline near By DEREK GILLIAM dgilliam@lakecityreporter.com T he busiest time of the year for Joy Lizotte is the month of April. Lizotte, a certified public accoun tant, is in constant contact with clients as Mondays deadline to file tax returns approaches. Lizotte works from her office in Lake City. She said this tax season many people are filing exten sions because the IRS was late in producing tax forms. Usually, tax profes sionals start the tax filing process in January. This year, the forms didnt reach CPAs until the mid dle of February. Lizotte said the IRS didnt know what the Tax Act would be, and that delayed the IRS from send ing the forms. But thats not the rea son this time of year is busier then the rest of the year for tax professionals. Some people procrasti nate and just dont want to do it, Lizotte said. She elaborated further and said some people dont keep organized records, but most of the time, its just people purely putting off an unpleasant task. Basically, everyone is rushing around to get their taxes done or filing for an extension, Lizotte said. If an extension is grant ed by the IRS, the new deadline to file tax returns will be Oct. 15. Lizotte said more tax returns are being filed online for free as large companies offer free ser vices for simpler returns. But because Lizotte spe cializes in filing more com plicated tax returns, she has not seen a decrease in business. In fact, Lizotte said she has told potential clients they would be better off filing for free online than using her services. I dont want them to pay me for a service for something they can accomplish themselves, she said. She said the large tax return corporations usually file tax returns in one Procrastinators lining up as time to file arrives.

TAXES continued on 2C Fla. billionaire wins wine suit; awarded $380K By LARRY NEUMEISTER Associated Press NEW YORK A Florida billionaire said he planned to drink a glass of wine to celebrate a federal jurys conclusion Thursday that he was defrauded by a California businessman who sold him two dozen bottles of fake vintage wine at a 2005 auction. Its a home run! a smiling William Koch told a supporter imme diately after the jury in U.S. District Court in Manhattan awarded him $380,000 in compensatory damages for the counter feit bottles of Bordeaux labeled as if they were cre ated from 1864 to 1950. Koch paid $29,500 for the most expensive bottle, a 1921 magnum bottle of Chateau Petrus. The jury returns Friday to decide if punitive damages are war ranted. Koch, a yachtsman who won the Americas Cup in 1992, had accused Eric Greenberg of fraudulent misrepresentation, fraud ulent concealment, decep tive business practices and false advertising. The jurys six men and two women sided with Koch on each civil charge. Outside the courthouse, he said he was going to a trendy French restaurant on Manhattans Upper East Side to celebrate. Im thirsty, he said with a smile. I want a glass of wine. A dejected Greenberg only shook his head when asked to comment. One of his lawyers said he did not want to comment until the jury had completed its work. For Koch, though, the jury verdict was part of a crusade against counter feit wine sellers that he promised would continue.

By CANDICE CHOIAP Food Industry WriterNEW YORK — Kool-Aid is unveiling a new look for its big red mascot Monday, as the powdered drink brand looks to refresh its image and tout a new liq-uid mix. The Kool-Aid Man, known for busting through walls and his “Oh yeah!” tagline, will now be com-puter-generated and take on the personality of a celebrity trying to show he’s just a normal guy. In past ads, the character was played by an actor in foam costume and had little to say or do besides crashing through a wall with a big, smiley face. The campaign comes as Kool-Aid plays up its liquid mix, which debuted in January and recently reached national distribu-tion. The new mix reflects a push by Kraft Foods to adjust to changing tastes and replicate the success of its liquid flavor enhanc-er called MiO. MiO, which people squirt into water for fla-vor, has already spawned copycats including Coca-Cola Co.’s Dasani Drops. Executives say people like them because the small bottles are easier to carry around than powder mixes and let people add as much or as little flavor as they like. The growing popularity of liquid mixes hasn’t been good for Kool-Aid. In 2012, the brand’s U.S. sales were down 5 per-cent to $338 million, according to the market researcher Euromonitor International. That was following a 4 percent drop the previous year. The liquid mix is a return to Kool-Aid’s roots. It began as a syrup called “Fruit Smack” in 1920. The product wasn’t modi-fied into a concentrated powder until 1927, when it was renamed “Kool-Ade.” The current spelling fol-lowed in the early 1930s. The Kool-Aid Man, meanwhile, made his first appearance in 1954 and has taken on various looks through the years. Kraft says his last big makeover was in 2000. Erica Rendall, senior brand manager at Kraft Foods Group Inc., says the new ads are intend-ed to fill in the blanks in Kool-Aid Man’s character so people can relate to him. “He said a few things here and there (in the past), but he really didn’t have a developed person-ality,” she said. In one of the new commercials, the scene opens with the character’s round silhouette behind a show-er curtain. When he steps out, he’s a clear pitcher of water and he explains in a voiceover that his life isn’t all “cherry and sweet-ness.” “I put my pants on one leg at a time,” the voiceover notes, as he stands in front of a pantry full of Kool-Aid mixes deciding what to wear. “Except my pants are 22 different flavors. I’ve got grape pants, I’ve got watermelon pants.” 2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 14, 2013 2CBIZ/MOTLEY“To me, the whole industry is being corrupted,” he said, recount-ing how his investigators had helped put one wine seller in jail and forced a judgment against another. “I abso-lutely can’t stand being cheated.” “Now we have this faker,” he said, referring to Greenberg. “We’re mov-ing down our hit list of fakers. This is just a start.” Koch, 72, testified during the trial that he has mostly stopped buying wines at auction because he has been cheated so many times and no longer trusted the market. Greenberg — a former billionaire who built two Internet consulting companies before the 2000 collapse of those stocks reportedly reduced his net worth by as much as 90 percent — had insisted on the witness stand that he never intentionally sold a bad bottle of wine. “I wouldn’t sell a fake wine,” he said as one of the trial’s first wit-nesses. “I’ve never intentionally sold fake wine in my life.” Millions were spent by both sides on lawyers in the case. Koch, the founder and president of the Oxbow Group, based in West Palm Beach, Fla., spent $3.7 million at the 2005 auction, buying 2,600 bottles of wine. He paid someone more than $75,000 daily for two days to make his bids, though he decided before the sale not to inspect the wines he eventually bought. Koch, a Palm Beach resident and the brother of industrialists and con-servative political supporters David and Charles Koch, conceded on the witness stand that the wine he bought from Greenberg was not his first encounter with fakes. In 1988, he said, he paid $400,000 for four bottles of French wine he falsely believed had been owned by Thomas Jefferson. WINE: Fla. billionaire wins fraud lawsuit Continued From Page 1C TAXES: Filing time here Continued From Page 1Csitting, but because she deals with more compli-cated returns, she will take down initial information and receive some docu-ments from her clients before she starts the pro-cess. The process starts with the initial tax documents, and then she complies a list of questions for the cli-ent. She said most people want a CPA who will be available to answer tax questions throughout the year. Developing working relationships with clients is something clients like, she said. “If you work with the same person for a number of years, you know what questions to ask,” Lizotte said. JOBLESS: Fewer apply Continued From Page 1Cweaker-than-expected data, particularly payrolls.” Employers added only 88,000 jobs in March, the government said last week. That followed four months in which job growth aver-aged 220,000. Last week’s drop in applications for unemployment aid could signal that hiring is pick-ing up in April. O’Sullivan noted that the average is near its level for the first three months of the year, when job gains averaged 168,000 a month. In March, the unemployment rate fell to a four-year low of 7.6 percent last month, down from 7.7 percent. But the rate fell only because more people stopped looking for work and were no longer count-ed as unemployed. Applications are a proxy for layoffs. The decline in applications signals that companies are laying off fewer workers. Nearly 5.28 million people were receiving unem-ployment aid in the week that ended March 23, the latest period for which fig-ures are available. That’s about 10,000 fewer than in the previous week. Still, layoffs are only half the equation. Businesses also need to be confident enough in the economic outlook to add more jobs. Companies are posting more open positions but have been slow to fill them. Their reluctance to hire suggests that they are still cautious about the econ-omy. The Labor Department reported earlier this week that companies advertised about 11 percent more job openings in February than in the same month a year earlier. But the number of people hired each month declined over that time. Employment experts and staffing firms say many businesses have become highly selective and appear to be waiting for perfect candidates. Much of the increase in net job gains earlier this year was a result of declin-ing layoffs. Job cuts fell in January to the lowest level in the 12 years that the government has tracked the data. Economists think economic growth accelerat-ed in the January-March quarter to an annual rate of 3 percent. That would be a vast improvement over the annual rate of 0.4 percent in the October-December.

However, when hes placed in an academic set ting dealing with facets of human anatomy, his true talents as a scholar appear. Those talents recently earned Dicks, 13, a seventh-grader at Richardson Middle School, an invitation to a three-week sum mer session at Duke University, in Durham, N.C., where he will do intensive study about human anatomy. The Duke Talent Identification Program identifies seventh-grad ers across the country who have scored in the 95th percentile or above on a grade-level achieve ment test. The students are then invited to participate in the Duke TIP Seventh-Grade Talent Search and then take the ACT or SAT college entrance exams. According to information from the the university, more than 68,000 academically-talented seventh-graders from across the country took the ACT or SAT in late 2011 and early 2012 attempt ing to get into the program. Dukes 7th Grade Talent Search is the largest program of its kind in the nation. Since its inception in 1980, more than 2 million stu dents have participated. While attending the program, Dicks said, he plans to focus his studies on a human body course and learn about the systems of the body. Im just interested in learning about the human body and its functions, he said. Once he arrives at Duke, Dicks will be paired with eighthgraders and other students who scored well on the tests. He said the course work, which will last about seven hours a day, will be taught by college instructors. Blue A new generation of plans for your generation.

That is the task we here at Florida Gateway College were faced with at this time last year. We had just completed the inaugural season of FGC Entertainment, the most successful season of entertainment in college history that featured the likes of Easton Corbin and Diamond Rio. As soon as the curtain closed on the final show, we were asked, “What’s next? When is the next show? Who’s performing next season?” That’s daunting, because success breeds expecta-tions, and after a tremen-dous first season, we didn’t want to let our commu-nity down. So, we went to work, and after several months, we believed we had a lineup that was even better than the first. And if attendance numbers can be believed, you did, too. More than 9,000 people attended our shows this season, breaking our attendance record set the previous year. Most of our shows were sellouts — twice this season, there were two sellouts in one day! — and those that weren’t left people wishing they’d attended. The season began in September with Fire and Rain: The James Taylor Tribute Experience, an homage to one of the greatest musicians of our time. That show — as well as mentalist Craig Karges’ October show — was a sellout. We embarked on a grueling week in November, hosting Contemporary Christian Music’s Jars of Clay — a Grammy and Dove award-winning group — and CMA New Artist of the Year nomi-nee Lee Brice, within five days of each other. Two performances of “The Nutcracker,” presented by Dance Alive!, took place in December and marked the first time the college has ever had two sellouts in one day. Cross City-based Steel Bridge rocked the house in January, and more than 1,400 people witnessed country music legend Tracy Lawrence sing many of his 18 No. 1 hits in February. All the way from Canada, Stayin’ Alive: The World’s No. 1 Tribute to the Bee Gees entertained audiences in March, trans-porting them back to the time of disco balls and bell bottoms. A week later, Natalie Stovall wowed those in attendance with her fiddle-shredding abili-ties. And just last week, Cirque Ziva mesmer-ized audiences with their acrobatic prowess. Both performances sold out and the acrobats left attendees wanting more — many of them, on their way out, asked if the group would come back again next year. Ten shows — and 12 performances — later, the second season of FGC Entertainment draws to a conclusion. So where does that put us right now? Exactly where we were a year ago, coming off the most successful entertain-ment season in college his-tory, wondering how in the world we’re going to top ourselves again. But while folks are quick to give us a lot of credit for the shows, this series wouldn’t happen without a lot of our outside sup-port, namely our sponsors. From headline sponsors to the silver sponsors, various businesses and corpora-tions in this community have been quick to jump on board and lend their support for entertainment in North Florida. And the best shows in the world can’t be successful without people in the seats. We’re very blessed that the com-munity has embraced this series and helped put Lake City on the map for enter-tainment. While we can’t announce anything about next sea-son at this time, we think it’ll be worth the wait. Much like this past year, the best is yet to come!

TASTE: Give Gator’s Dockside a try Continued From Page 1DGator’s doesn’t slack on wait staff, either. They are friendly and there is always someone within earshot who is happy to get you anything you might need. The menu options at Gator’s have something for absolutely everyone. Even our large group had a hard time choosing! Among the appetizer choices, we tried out the fried dill pickle chips and Asian pot stickers. The dill pickle chips were sea-soned nicely, fried crispy and served with a creamy ranch dressing. The pot stickers’ paper-thin wrap-per was stuffed with a tasty pork and veggie mixture. The thick soy and sesame dip was the perfect complement to these little bundles of goodness. For our main meals, we all picked something different that suited our taste buds for the day. The Asian salad was chock full of lightly fried shrimp tossed in a light sesame-ginger dressing and topped with fried wonton strips. Simply scrumptious. The tradi-tional cobb salad, with grilled chicken, bacon, boiled eggs and shredded cheese, was equally deli-cious. Some of us went for sandwiches, including the Philly cheesesteak, with tender, chopped ribeye steak, cheese, onions, mushrooms and peppers. The Monte Cristo, full of turkey breast, ham, Swiss and American cheese, was battered and fried to per-fection, and served with powdered sugar and rasp-berry jam to finish it off. The Gator Cuban was also a great choice. Of course you can’t come to Gator’s without trying their wings. One of the things we love about their options is you can choose all flats, all drums or a combination. And you have nearly 20 different amazing sauces to try out. Several of our favorites are sweet Thai chili, honey garlic and Caribbean jerk. Gator’s also serves up baby back ribs, hand-dipped fish and chips, chicken Alfredo, pot roast and Parmesan chicken. And we forgot to mention they have a healthy offer-ing of burgers, including a stuffed Reuben burger that we want to try the next time we stop in. We hope you’ll give Gator’s a try soon, and we’re sure you’ll be happy you did!

From staff reportsGAINESVILLE — New Florida Museum of Natural History research shows a turtle population can recover from a harvesting event after decades, but habitat degrada-tion may favor more tolerant species. Between 1969 and 1980, the northern map turtle was harvested in the Ozarks for the food trade, causing about 50 per-cent population loss. Analyzing a river in Missouri from 2005 to 2007, scientists found northern map turtle populations have rebounded to numbers recorded in the same river in 1969. The data shows a shift in the river turtle community, with a dramatic increase in red-eared sliders and the common musk turtle, which are more tolerant. The study was published online in the journal Reptilia-Amphibia. “We have degraded and lost a great amount of habitat around this area because of road construction, bridge building and tremendous numbers of canoes going down the river,” said study co-author Max Nickerson, herpetology curator at the museum on the University of Florida campus. “The hellbender salamander popula-tion has crashed, but in this case, the turtles are still hanging in there.” The research is a continuation of surveys conducted in 2004 that showed the turtle population had not yet rebounded, but females were on the rise. Inhabiting river systems from southern Arkansas to Quebec, the northern map turtle, Graptemys geographica, is among the most wide-ranging map turtles in the U.S. They are dietary specialists and depend mainly on snails, making the species especially susceptible to biodeg-radation. Harvesting and habitat degradation threaten wildlife populations worldwide and may also impact local economies. Like Missouri, North Central Florida has some of the highest concentrations of spring-fed rivers in the country. “If there’s one thing we need to pay attention to in North Central Florida as a very important component of the economy for many of our towns and the enjoyment of all the people in the area, it’s these spring-fed rivers,” Nickerson said. Museum study: Turtle numbers up; habitat loss still poses threat Vermont suddenly awash in world-class craft beersBy LISA RATHKEAssociated PressGREENSBORO, Vt. — Everyone expects Vermonters to wow the world with their maple syrup and cheeses. But lately the buzz has been about the brews. Not that the craft beer movement is anything new to this tiny New England state, which sports the highest number of brew-ers per capita — roughly 25,030 people per brew-ery. But lately the atten-tion those brewers have garnered is different. It’s not a hey-they-have-great-beers-in-Vermont. It’s a hey-they-have-the-best-beer-in-the-world. No, really. Hill Farmstead Brewery recently was rated the world’s best brewer on the popular international consumer review website, RateBeer.com. And that has triggered a rush of beer enthusiasm — and enthusiasts — that has bordered on fanati-cism. Since Hill Farmstead opened three years ago, beer tourists have been coming from around the world to visit the micro-brewery on a farm off a dirt road in Greensboro to buy growlers and bottles of brewer Shaun Hill’s cre-ations. “It’s like a cult following,” said Ben King, who with his wife Sarah flew up from North Carolina to sample Vermont’s beers. They even rented a car so they could stock it, then make the 13-hour drive home. “As you can see it’s definitely growing and I’m part of that crowd,” said King, who was among the first in line at Hill Farmstead on a recent Saturday. “The beer’s so good.”

Doing nothing seems unthinkable. But experts say that is exactly what a dog owner should do: nothing. “The human-animal bond is no joke. Most pet owners are very attached to their pets,” said Dr. Lynn Miller, a veterinarian who runs the animal clinic at Travis Air Force Base, north of San Francisco. “But you’re not going to save your dog by risking your own life. It does your dog no favors in the end if he comes back and you’re dead. Then what is he going to do?” Five people have died in attempted dog rescues in Northern California since November, said Coast Guard Petty Officer 2nd Class Pamela Boehland, based in Alameda, Calif. A couple of months ago, Boehland teamed up with the National Park Service and the East Bay SPCA on a campaign to keep people on dry land if their dogs get caught up in the surf. The average dog is a better swimmer than the average human. Dogs such as Labrador retrievers, German shepherds and pit bull terriers are built like boats, the vet said. Their heads are above water, they have a low center of gravity, they have four legs for propulsion, their lungs have a higher capacity than a human’s, their fur keeps them warm in cold water — and many have water-proof undercoats — and some dog breeds have webbed feet. Using their namesake swim stroke, dogs can find their way back to shore using currents and their fight-or flight-instinct, Miller said. Dogs are single-minded, focusing on finding safe-ty, while humans panic or become distracted, Miller said. Owners who try to make a rescue also may go into shock from the cold water, try to fight the current and get tumbled around, or tire easily, she said. People also don’t think about what will happen if they do follow a dog and manage to reach it alive, Miller said. “A Coast Guard dude in a boat’s got a better chance of snatching him up than you do of swimming out and grabbing him and haul-ing him back. Fifty pounds of wet dog is absolutely no fun to drag anywhere, much less back to shore,” Miller said. “You sure can’t put him on your back.” Currents might cause a dog to come out of the water some distance from the spot where it went into the sea, so a microchip and collar with identification can speed up a reunion, said Allison Lindquist, president of the East Bay Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The recent California deaths occurred during sunnier weather, when seas were churned up by storms from Alaska. But such storms, with their sneaker or rogue waves, are possible any time of the year, especially when seasons change, Lindquist said. In Southern California, where pleasant weather year-round draws visitors to the shore, many patrolled beaches do not allow dogs. That includes Los Angeles County, home to famous beaches in Malibu and Venice, said Dan Murphy, an ocean lifeguard special-ist. Some breeds, Miller said, shouldn’t be on a beach without a life vest. Those include pugs, bulldogs and others that “can bare-ly breathe when they are walking;” dachshunds and corgis with legs too short to swim; and Chihuahuas and other toy dogs, Boehland said. It is rare that a dog will be swept away by a rip current, but lifeguards’ message to pet owners is the same as Boehland’s, Murphy said. “They should let a lifeguard know and if we have personnel available, we will attempt a rescue. Upon reaching the dogs, they are usually more than happy to climb aboard our rescue board or Baywatch rescue boat,” he said. “If you’re not a trained rescue person, you might be doing more harm than good,” added Petty Officer 3rd Class Ross Ruddell, based in Boston. Boehland said that sometimes, even trained officers can make that mistake, cit-ing the example of a Coast Guard officer who died four or five years ago while trying to rescue her dog. “Everyone is susceptible. The Pacific Ocean is cold and can be cruel,” she said. Experts: Don’t try to save swept-away pets PetsASSOCIATED PRESS A dog named Pike plays in the surf along the California coast. Watching as a beloved dog is swept out to sea is heart-wrenching. Doing nothing seems unthinkable. But experts say that is exactly what a dog owner should do: nothing. The avera ge dog is a better swimmer than the average human. Most dogs can swim better than people. Online: Q East Bay SPCA: http://www.eastbay spca.org Q Coast Guard: http://www.uscg.mil T he average Florida home indoor water use is 69.3 gal-lons per person per day. In a household of four people, this means that nearly 280 gallons of water go down the drain every day. Even more frustrating, in our emerging water awareness, is the fact that an average irrigated Florida lawn uses about 2,500 gallons of water every time it is irrigated, which varies according to season and weather condi-tions. Every day, I hear lip service to water quantity and quality solutions. It always seems to be what the speaker wants someone else to do. But those solu-tions never seem to involve behavior changes made by that individual. Who owns the problem? Is a solution important enough to you to make changes to your daily lifestyle? The public water supply category is responsible for the single largest portion of groundwater withdrawal in Florida, nearly 43 per-cent. Homeowners use about 61 percent of this public water category in and around their homes. Changing some daily habits is something that every individual can do to help conserve Florida’s water resources. That family of four uses more than 100,000 gallons of indoor water yearly. Shockingly, an estimated 13,700 of that yearly figure is wasted because of leaks. Yes, leaks. Drips, faulty faucets, leaky pipes, run-ning toilet tanks. Some minor repair work could save nearly 14 percent of indoor water use. Toilet flushing, which accounts for more than 26 percent of indoor water use, could be reduced. Low-volume toilets could be installed to save some of the yearly 26,000 gallons of flushed water. More than half of our indoor waste water is called ‘gray water’. This water comes from show-ers, tubs and clothes wash-ers. According to the 2009 Florida Building Code, gray water can be used in Florida to flush toilets, thus eliminating the use of fresh water for flushing. Since gray water can be a potential health hazard, however, it is necessary to get a permit and follow the disinfecting requirements. There are many ways to conserve water inside and outside. Talking about it doesn’t get the job done, however. So, go to http://floridayards.org and check out all the ways you can reduce your water use.

Statue of Liberty to reopen by July 4Associated PressNEW YORK — The Statue of Liberty, closed since Superstorm Sandy damaged the island where it stands, will reopen to the public in time for Independence Day, officials said. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced the timeline for the reopen-ing along with U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer of New York. “Hurricane Sandy inflicted major damage on facili-ties that support the Statue of Liberty,” Salazar said. “Based on the tremendous progress we have made, Lady Liberty will be open to the public in time for the July 4th celebration.” The statue itself was spared in the late-October storm, but its surround-ing island was badly dam-aged. Railings broke, pav-ing stones were torn up and buildings were flooded. The storm also destroyed boilers, sewage pumps and electrical systems on the island.

PAGE 23

DEAR ABBY: My daughter was married eight months ago. During the planning of the wed-ding, her fiance was very involved in every aspect of decision-mak-ing. Soon after the vows were exchanged, her new husband became cold and distant toward her. He would constantly tell her she made him miserable, and he allowed his mother to ridicule and berate her over things from her hair color to her cooking. My husband and I kept quiet because we didn’t want to interfere. About a month ago, he decided he no longer wanted to be married. Since then, my daughter has revealed that shortly after the wed-ding she discovered her engagement ring was a fake, and he insisted she pay for half the costs of the honeymoon -which she did. We’re not wealthy people, so paying for their wedding was a stretch for us. I am furious that my soon-to-be ex-son-in-law sat and watched us spend thousands of dollars on a wedding, knowing full well my daughter was wearing a fake ring on her hand and then insisted she pay for half the honeymoon. I wonder what his real motive was in marrying her. He shows no remorse and portrays himself as the “victim” for having mar-ried someone who couldn’t get along with his mother. How do I move forward and get over my anger and need for retribu-tion? -OUTRAGED IN OKLAHOMA DEAR OUTRAGED: Start by thanking your lucky stars that your daughter will soon be free of a husband who appears to be already married to his mother. Then realize that your daughter was married to a dishonest, verbally abusive user to whom she might have been tied for a lifetime if she’d had a child or two with him. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I’m a 24-year-old gay man, and I still don’t know if I want to have children or not. I feel that by this point I should know, but I don’t. When I date, the subject inevitably comes up, and I never know how to respond. I used to think that children were an expense I would never want, but now the thought pops into my head from time to time. People have told me I’d be a great dad. I think so, too. When and how will I know for sure? And in the meantime, what should I tell the guys I date? -UNDECIDED IN WASHINGTON, D.C. DEAR UNDECIDED: It is not unusual for a person your age -regardless of sexual orientation -to be unsure about taking on the responsibilities of parent-hood. You will probably know “for sure” you want children when you are in a stable relationship and financially able to provide for them. In the meantime, tell the guys you date that you “think” you would like to be a parent one day -but you’re not yet ready to set up a nursery. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Set your goals and stick to them. Expressing your plans and elaborat-ing on the possibilities will drum up interest and sup-port. Socialize or take part in entertaining events that can enhance your personal life and love relationships. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Suspicions must not be ignored. Your intu-ition is trying to tell you something and you should listen. Secret plans or endeavors with people from your past are likely. Protect your emotions and your assets. Stay in con-trol. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Getting together with old friends will lead to revisiting an old idea. Using your skills and tal-ent to get ahead may seem too easy, but it can proba-bly turn out to be lucrative if you keep at it. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take your time and hear what everyone has to say before you make a final decision regarding a personal or financial change. Problems with people putting pressure on you must be handled delicately. There is nothing wrong with saying “no” nicely. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Plan a fun day. Round up the people you enjoy spending time with most. A trip or a cultural event that will broaden your interests and your knowl-edge should be consid-ered. Helping a cause will enhance your reputation. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Stick to basics and what you know and do best. Venturing too far from your comfort zone will lead to expenses and emotional upsets you’d prefer to avoid. Your quest for knowledge or picking up a new skill should be your focus. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Enjoy whatever excite-ment you can drum up through travel, socializing or spending time with someone special. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Stick close to home and work toward turning your surroundings into a better work and entertain-ment space. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Love will play an important role in the way you move forward with your personal and profes-sional plans. Make a com-mitment. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Listen to what’s being said, but do what’s best for you. It isn’t likely you will be able to please everyone, no matter how much you bend. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Rearranging your living space or making a move from one location to another will enhance your life and give you a revived sense of what you want to accomplish and how you are going to go about doing so. Love is highlight-ed. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Practicality coupled with honesty will be a must if you are going to reach your goals. Consider the facts and reassess past problems and you’ll real-ize you may have made a mistake. Backtrack and do what’s right so you can move forward. ++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Postal ID6 Memphis belle?10 Raspberry14 Kind of form&REEOHUVMRE20 So that one might22 Black shade23 Stevedore, at times&ROOHJHVWXGHQWV place 25 Dial competitor26 British soccer powerhouse *RWLW29 Fish with a long neck 3URFUDVWLQDWRUV enablers 34 Shark, maybe%HDWDWD1DWKDQV hot dog contest,say 6QDNHLQ7KH -XQJOH%RRN 39 Salad bar items/HBBBGH0RQWH &ULVWR 42 Visa offering2IBBBVHUYLFLQJ48 Mayo containers?7XUQHG&KLQD%HDFK actressHelgenberger 52 Novelist who had two spousessimultaneously $EEURQFDUVHOOHUV license plates 54 N.

Dont miss out on the opportunity to learn what might LCM-4573 Oh My Aching Feet Seminar Ad 5.25x10.5_L2.indd 1 4/11/13 2:13 PM Dicks said he was recently in a local Science Olympiad academic com petition where he focused his studies on the digestive system of the human body, which piqued his interest in anatomy. I took the ACT for the Duke TIP program, and my scores were high enough to let me get into the Duke TIP Summer Study Program, he said. Since I had done anatomy and I liked it, one of the courses that was in (the course list) was the human body, and I decided to do it. Dicks and two other Richardson Middle School seventh-graders were called to schools guidance office earlier in the school year and received letters to take the tests. I was kind of surprised that I scored very good, he said, not so much on the math, since Im also taking Algebra 1 honors, and since thats a high school course, I knew a lot on the math section of the test but on everything else I had to guess because I didnt know the answer or because I was running out of time. Dicks group will attend classes at Duke from June 9 to 29 three weeks of intensive study. He said his family likely will drive him to the university. My mom, shes really happy that Im doing this and so is my dad, Dicks said. I also have three brothers. Everybody in my family my grandparents, my cousins everybodys really excited that Im going on this trip. Im really excited. Im, like, thrilled. The session is described as a brief college experi ence for a seventh-grader. This really makes you feel good about yourself and feel that youre really smart, and you have to be extremely talented to even be eligible to take the test, Dicks said. When you make it, youre speechless. You dont know what to say, because there are so many people who took the test. Leanne Peace, Dicks language arts teacher at Richardson Middle School, said the session is an incredible opportunity for a seventh-grader. Getting to have a col lege-level experience while in the seventh grade is practically unheard of, she said. I think this is just a super neat oppor tunity for Garet to be at Duke. Its definitely a rare opportunity and its really exciting that hes so ambi tious and wants to take part in something like this. Peace said the schools faculty and staff are proud to have Dicks represent Richardson Middle School through the program, and she expects him to fare well during his summer session. Were really proud that he got accepted. He took the test and he had the drive to go, she said. Hes a great student in the classroom. Hes very disciplined, very organized and very task oriented. He strives for the best in the classroom and he proves himself time and time again. Dicks is attempting do fundraisers to collect the $3,300 he needs to attend the summer seminar at Duke. His family has already paid a $300 downpayment towards the trip. The payment deadline for the Duke trip is May 3. Dicks said hes looking forward to the trip and the experience. Im going, and Im not going to know anybody because nobody from this school is going to be there, he said. Im going to be the only one from my school so Im going to get to make a lot of new friends and just meet a lot of new people. Dicks is in the Richardson Middle School Supporting Academic Independent Learners (S.A.I.L.) program. The program is part of the preadvanced placement pro gram at the school.
