By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comConstruction debris litters the ground outside of Lake Citys Robert B. Harkness Florida National Guard Armory, a red brick building now gutted and waiting for work to begin on renovations. According to Lt. Col. Mark Wiedner, the project budget totals $2.6 million, divided equally between state and federal funds. Work began on the facility in January and is expected to be completed by November. Renovations to the armory, at 490 NW Lake Jeffrey Road, include upgrades to elec-trical systems, plumbing and mechanical equipment. The construction will add air conditioning to the drill hall, which was sti-fling hot during summer and freezing during winter. In addition to the upgrades, a new classroom addition will be built at the back of the current building. All work will be conducted under Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, standards. The local project is part of the Florida Armory Revitalization Program, a statewide initiative to modernize and improve energy efficiency in armories. It began in 2004 with a priority list of armories that needed to be upgraded, Wiedner said. Each year, the state Senate sets aside a designated amount for the Guard to devote to renovations, and this year, $15 million is budgeted. So far, 34 armories have been revamped, Wiedner said. The local armory will be the 35th. The armories are the home stations for our troops, Wiedner said. Its a community-based facility to house the soldiers of the Florida National Guard. Historically, armories have been used by their communities as public meeting spaces.

SUNDAYEDITION Vol. 138, No. 319 1D 1C 1A 6SHFLDO6XSSOHPHQW2013 Teen tobacco use on decline By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comTobacco use among Columbia County High School students dropped by 10.3 per-cent in 2012 compared to 2010, according to a biannual survey conducted by Tobacco Free Florida. Among the high school students questioned, 23.9 percent said they had used a form of tobacco in the previous 30 days, com-pared to 34.2 percent in 2010. Middle school students who reported using tobacco in the previous month dropped from 12 percent in 2010 to 9.2 percent in 2012. Florida witnessed a decline in overall use for high school stu-dents from 22 percent in 2010 to 17.9 percent in 2012, according to the survey. The state Department of Health questioned students on a variety of tobacco and health-related questions, such as whether the student had smoked a cigarette recently or if he or she had a history of asthma or obesity. Columbia County tobacco prevention specialist Lauren Pinchouck said there has been a visible decline in students using tobac-co. The decline could be attributed to the increased sales tax on cigarettes, as well as an increased awareness among youth about the negative consequences associated with smoking, she said. The federal Centers for Disease Control METROSince 2010, tobacco use among Columbia County high school stu-dents has fallen 10 percent. But flavored, smokeless tobacco products still luring some into addictive habits.

Officials said seasonal agricultural work, as well as manufac-turing and leisure jobs, are key components of the decrease. Some of the trends specifically for our region, while there have been loses statewide in the gov-ernment sector, there has been an increase in manufacturing jobs and also in the leisure and hospi-tality industry like eating estab-lishments, said Darlene Strimple, Florida Crown Workforce Board project director. Those jobs have helped the unemployment rate decrease in our area. Floridas unemployment rate for March was 7.5 percent, down .3 percent from February, and the lowest the states rate has been since October 2008. March was the 32nd consecutive month with positive job growth for Florida after the state lost jobs for more than three Victims hand cut grabbing for knife held at her throat. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA woman suffered cuts to her hands when she grabbed the knife of a man when who was robbing her at an ATM Friday night, according to Lake City police. No arrests have been made in the case. City police reported that, about 9:30 p.m. Friday, Debra Charles, 55, drove up to the ATM at First Federal Bank, 707 SW Main Blvd., to make a transaction. Charles told authorities she opened her door so she could better reach the machine, and while waiting for the transac-tion to be completed, an man came between the ATM and her vehicle, placed his hand over her mouth and told her to stop screaming or he would cut her. The man then placed one of his arms around her neck and held a knife to her throat with the other, reportedly telling her, give me the money. Charles said after she gave the suspect the cash, he demanded Local Guard armory undergoing renovations ABOVE: Fort White residents Ron Caplano and artist Katrina Browning examine artwork on display at the Gateway Art Gallery, 461 SW Main Blvd., during the gallerys grand opening on Friday.

TALLAHASSEE The state of Florida filed a law suit Saturday against oil company BP and cement contractor Halliburton over the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, becom ing the fourth state to seek damages for the 2010 disaster. The suit, among other things, faults BP for not changing the batteries on the rigs blowout pre venter. Halliburton was blamed for installing faulty cement barriers that were supposed to gird the well against oil pressure. The 40-page complaint by Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi was filed in U.S. District Court in Panama City. The fed eral court has jurisdiction under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990. Bondi filed suit on the three-year anniversary of the tragedy that killed 11 rig workers in the Gulf of Mexico. Florida is now the fourth state to sue over the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill; Mississippi sued on Friday. Cities and counties along the coast also have filed. A BP spokesman declined comment and Halliburton spokespeople were not immediately available. A note on BPs website Saturday from BP America Chairman and President John Ming said, On the third anniversary of the tragic accident in the Gulf of Mexico, our thoughts and prayers are with the fami lies and friends of our 11 colleagues who died and those injured. The suit focuses on the states economic losses and includes negligence and other claims under federal, state and maritime law. Bondi argues that the 2010 spill cost the state a variety of tax revenues, including sales taxes, gasoline taxes, cigarette surcharges and beer, wine and liquor taxes. The state also seeks punitive damages, calling it ...the worst oil spill in American history, with the unfettered release of millions of gallons directly into the Gulf of Mexico (that went) unchecked for months. (See related story, page 1C.) Optometrists get prescribing power TALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott has signed into law a long-debated bill that expands the drug-prescrib ing powers of optometrists. Scott signed the bill (HB 239) on Friday. The state now allows optometrists to prescribe oral medications including pills to treat eye diseases. They had been limited to prescribing medica tions such as eye drops. Optometrists had to refer patients to ophthalmolo gists for conditions requir ing drugs taken by mouth. Optometrists are not medical doctors and gener ally do not have the same authority to write prescrip tions like ophthalmologists who are medical or osteo pathic physicians. The Florida Optometric Association reported that 47 other states allow optometrists to prescribe oral medication to treat eye diseases. Fla. runners to finish marathon TALLAHASSEE More than 900 people from Florida and Georgia are planning to run the final 5.2 miles of the Boston Marathon at a Tallahassee race in a sym bolic gesture of support for the runners who were stopped at mile 21 during the deadly bombings. More than a dozen Tallahassee residents ran the Boston Marathon earlier this week. Several of them will participate in todays event. Tallahassee has a strong running and triathlete community and is home to an annual mara thon that many runners from around the nation attend to qualify for the Boston Marathon. Shannon Colavecchio planned todays run in a few days and thought it might draw 50 runners. But she said she has received overwhelming support from the commu nity. All proceeds will go to the Boston Red Cross. Toddler found dead in pool GAINESVILLE Authorities located the body of a 3-year-old boy who wandered from his southwest Gainesville home on Friday morning just yards away from his front doorstep in an abandoned pool. Demetrius Powers uncle reported him miss ing at about 11:42 a.m. Friday, said Alachua County sheriffs spokes man Art Forgey. Demetrius had been playing in front of his fam ily residence at 517 SW 67th Terrace in the Holly Heights subdivision, when he and a 4-year old play mate wandered near the abandoned pool. Upon arriving, Sheriffs Office personnel began searching for Demetrius. They found the boys life less body at about 2 p.m. Neighbors, many of whom were standing out side by that time, erupted into tears. ASO Deputy Chris Witzel said the pool is surrounded by a fence, but the fence has multiple openings. Property manager Kathy Banta, of Banta Properties, said, The pool was drained and it was sealed off. Its has rained quite a lot in the past few days, so it was filled with rainwater. Woman, children killed in crash DAYTONA BEACH A woman and two children are dead, and a third child is in the hospital, follow ing a rollover crash in Interstate 95 in central Florida.

I think this is a reasonable way to resolve this case, said Superior Court Judge Hank Goldberg, who did not disclose terms of the settle ment. Humphries sent his lawyer but did not appear in court. Kardashian, who is pregnant with a child by her boyfriend Kanye West, appeared in a black silk puffy sleeveless maternity dress embellished with sequins on the skirt. During your marriage did irrec oncilable differences occur? the judge asked. Yes, said Kardashian. Is there any way your marriage can be saved? he asked. No, said Kardashian. She married the NBA player in a high-profile wedding in August 2011. She filed for divorce later that year. He sought an annulment claiming their marriage in an elaborate wed ding ceremony was a fraud staged for her reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. She denied the allegations and insisted on a traditional divorce. The judge dropped an order for the Brooklyn Nets power forward to appear and explain why he failed to attend a previous hearing. USA Today founder Neuharth dies at 89 COCOA BEACH Al Neuharth changed the look of American news papers when he founded USA Today, filling the newspaper with breezy, easy-to-comprehend articles, atten tion-grabbing graphics and stories that often didnt require readers to jump to a different page. Critics dubbed USA Today McPaper when it debuted in 1982, and they accused Neuharth, of dumbing down American journalism with its easy-to-read articles and bright graphics. USA Today became the nations most-circulated newspaper in the late 1990s. The hard-charg ing founder of USA Today died Friday in Cocoa Beach. He was 89. The news was announced by USA Today and by the Newseum, which he also founded. Jack Marsh, president of the Al Neuharth Media Center and a close friend, confirmed that he passed away Friday afternoon at his home. Marsh said Neuharth fell earlier this week and never quite recovered. In 1999, USA Today edged past the Wall Street Journal in circulation with 1.75 million daily copies, to take the title of the nations biggest news paper. The launch of USA Today was Neuharths most visible undertaking during more than 15 years as chair man and CEO of the Gannett Co. He retired in 1989.

Bob Palmer, a spokesman for Van Dyke, said Thursday that hes under going tests for cranial throbbing thats causing him to lose sleep. The sensation occurs when Van Dyke lies down, and scans and other tests have yet to yield a diagnosis, Palmer said. Van Dyke drew a number of responses to his tweet for help Wednesday, including questions about whats been done so far for the problem he described as stubborn.

TOBACCO: Teen smoking declines since 2010 Continued From Page 1A Thanks and jubilation By JAY LINDSAY and STEVE PEOPLES Associated Press BOSTON They gath ered in silence on Boylston Street, just three blocks away from the chaos and carnage caused by twin bombings four days earlier. Some were crying. Boston University stu dent Aaron Wengertsman, 19, wrapped himself in an American flag. He was on the marathon route a mile from the finish line when the bombs exploded. Im glad they caught him alive, he said of one of two brothers authorities say were responsible for the explosions. I thought people might be more excited, but its humbling to see all these people pay ing their respects. As Wengertsman and dozens of others held a solemn commemoration Friday night for the victims of the blasts, others took to the streets of Boston and beyond to celebrate the capture of the surviving suspect following a man hunt that left the city large ly paralyzed. In Bostons Dorchester neighborhood, where an 8year-old boy killed in the bombing lived, people set off fireworks. Boston University juniors Brendan Hathaway and Sam Howes gave high fives to strangers as they walked down the street bathed in the flashing lights from Kenmore Squares iconic rooftop Citgo sign. This was like our first opportunity to really be outside without feeling like there imminent danger, said Hathaway, a mechani cal engineering student from nearby Newton. It was close to home for me. At Boston Common, Beth Lloyd-Jones said it felt like she had her city back. She was blocks away from the blast on Monday in her south end home. Its personal, she said, noting that shes planning her wedding for the public library building adjacent to where the bombs exploded. By TONY BRITT email@example.com The Columbia County Branch of the NAACP will celebrate a years worth of accomplishments during its 31st Annual Freedom Fund Luncheon. The luncheon will take place at noon Saturday at the Winfield Community Center, 1324 NW Winfield St. Attire for the event is semi-formal. The Rev. Ronald Walters, pastor at Olivet Missionary Baptist Church, will serve as keynote speaker. The theme for this years event is: NAACP, Standing Firm for Justice and Equality. Tickets for the event are $35 per person and can be purchased from any local National Association for the Advancement of Colored People member. Linda Thomas, NAACP branch president, said the event has financial signifi cance. Its a fundraiser for the Columbia County Branch NAACP, Thomas said. Several members will be recognized during the lun cheon for their contribu tions. We are still soliciting memberships, Thomas said. Founded in 1909 by a group of black and white citizens, the NAACP is the nations oldest and larg est civil rights organiza tion. Its adult and youth members throughout the United States and the world are premier advo cates for civil rights in their communities. NAACP to hold annual luncheon Walters Armory said the facility was used in the past for local events, such as wed dings and even a prom. But as the building became outdated, locals stopped renting it. He hopes the renovation will encourage people to once again use the armory, enabling the Guard to give back to the community. Proceeds from the rent als will go back into the National Guard funds to pay for future renovations, Roth said. The armory is home base for the approximately 67 troops of Alpha Co., 53rd Battalion. A lot of things needed to be upgraded, Roth said. Its going to be a big help. Over the years, the local Guard has made self-help repairs to the old building, which Roth believes was constructed in the mid 20th century. But a full-scale remodel was due, he said. and Prevention, a major player in the anti-smoking campaign, recently released a series of graphic commer cials telling the stories of ex-smok ers. Pinchouck said she thinks those intense commercials help to teach children and teens the truth about cigarettes. However, within Columbia County, the main concern has become fla vored smokeless tobacco. Theyre obviously aimed at youth, Pinchouck said. They get the children hooked on these prod ucts, and theyre hooked for life. While Pinchouck said she has noticed a rise in the use of the fla vored products, the Tobacco Free Florida survey found a decline in smokeless tobacco use from 4 per cent of middle school students and 15 percent of high school students in 2010 to 3.8 percent of middle school students and 10.4 percent of high school students in 2012. Due to efforts by the Richardson Middle School SWAT group and the Columbia County Department of Health, county commissioners passed a resolution on May 17, 2012, urging local retailers to stop the sale and marketing of flavored tobacco in the county. According to the resolution, tobac co use is the number one cause of preventable death in the United States, and nearly 90 percent of smokers started before they were 18 years old. The resolution contin ues says that each day, 4,000 young people try smoking for the first time, and another 2,000 become regular smokers. Harvard University research con cluded that candy-flavored tobacco products target youth by masking the taste of harsh chemicals, as well as giving the products youthful names like Mandarin Mint, Winter Warm Toffee and Twista Chill. Smokeless tobacco, Pinchouck said, is harder to catch because chil dren can mask its use, while ciga rettes produce a smell and can be seen. Ten percent of high school and middle school children said that they have never smoked and never intended to smoke, according to the survey. In the middle school age group, those expected to never use tobacco increased from 64.1 percent to 73.3 percent, and high school students saying they will never use tobacco increased from 45.6 percent to 55.4 percent over the two years since the 2010 survey. A decrease in students exposed to secondhand smoke was reported by the survey, but it also noted a marginal increase in homes where smoking is allow inside, up from 19.5 to 19.9 percent over the two years. I hate to say this, Pinchouck said. A lot of parents give the ciga rettes to their kids, which causes a generational smoking habit. Tobacco fields used to dot the region, so Pinchouck believes the parents who are providing their chil dren with cigarettes do not necessar ily think it is wrong. It is just the way they are raised, she said. Her specu lation comes from data collected by the county health department. Both Pinchouck and Pam Parks, SWAT coordinator at Richardson Middle School, hope the county can continue to see a decline over the years. ARMORY: Project started Continued From Page 1A JOBS: More working Continued From Page 1A years. The industry gain ing the most jobs was lei sure and hospitality, with an increase of 45,300 jobs across the state, roughly a 4.6 percent increase. The national unemploy ment rate for March was 7.6 percent. Strimple said that based on early indicators such as people visiting Florida Crown Workforce Board for services, it appears the regions unemployment rate will continue down ward. Beside manufacturing and leisure industry jobs, Strimple said, there has been positive growth in the education and health fields, as well in natural resources and mining. Strimple also noted that the size of the labor force increased from February, meaning more people look ing for and finding employ ment. In the past, a lot of times people just stopped looking or felt they were getting to the age where they no longer wanted to go into the workforce, she said. In the past, (state employ ment officials) were saying people stopped looking for work because they were at a retirement age. In our region, people are finding more jobs, which is a very good thing. Strimple said the state reported the highest job growth in the nation during March. She said seasonal employment opportunities are also impacting the local job market. Right now, agricultural jobs are at a peak, she said. As we approach sum mer, what we expect to see is a lot of people who work in the school system will be without employment dur ing the summer months. ... (B)ut come May and June, that will impact on unem ployment in our area. The county labor force consists of approximately 30,992 people. In March, 29,007 residents were employed, while an esti mated 1,985 people were jobless. In February the local unemployment rate was 6.9 percent. Then the countys workforce was listed at 30,891 people, with 28,758 employed and 2,133 unemployed. In March 2012, the coun tys unemployment rate was 8.2 percent. The highest March unemployment rate in the state belonged to Hendry County, 10 percent, followed by Flagler County at 9.5 per cent, Putnam County at 9.4 percent and Miami-Dade County at 9.2 percent. ROBBERY: Suspect flees Continued From Page 1A she retrieve more from the ATM. Charles told police that while placing her card back in the ATM, she grabbed the knife and received lac erations to her right hand. As the robbery was occurring, a pickup truck approached on Alachua Street near the bank and caused the suspect to flee on foot, authorities said. The robber was last seen running east. Charles was able to leave the bank and contacted city police. The Criminal Investigations Division responded and is investi gating the crime. Police did not release a physical description of the assailant or give any addi tional details about Charles wounds. Repeated phone calls from the Reporter seeking more information were not returned. Investigator Tammy Cox asked that anyone with any information about the crime to contact the Lake City Police Department at 7524344 or leave a tip anony mously at 719-2068. ASSOCIATED PRESS Bostonians cheer and wave the American flag at Boston Common after the final suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing was arrested Friday.

OPINION Sunday, April 21, 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 Mondays bombing at the Boston Marathon was shocking, infuriating, devastating. Three died, including an 8-year-old boy who had waited at the finish line to greet his father. Scores were injured, some losing limbs, in what President Obama labeled an act of terror. And yet the acts of many people on the scene were inspiring proof that good cannot be subdued, even when confronted by the most malignant evil. Rather than flee from the first explosion, many bystanders joined emergency responders who rushed forward to aid the victims. Even after anoth-er bomb detonated seconds later, the rescuers didnt abandon their mission, despite the risk that more deadly blasts would follow. Moments like these, terrible as they are, dont show our weakness, said Dan Conley, district attor-ney in Boston. They show our strength. Carlos Arredondo, who was badly burned after a suicide attempt outside his South Florida home in 2004 following the death of a son in Iraq, was among the angels on the scene. The Costa Rican immigrant pulled away debris covering the victims and tended to their wounds. He stopped the bleeding of one man who had lost a leg, then shepherded him in his wheelchair to an ambulance in a photo seen in newspapers around the world. An American flag that Arredondo had been carrying became stained with blood. Former New England Patriots player Joe Andruzzi, who was photographed carrying an injured woman to safety, said, The spotlight should remain firmly ... on the countless civilians who did what they could do to save lives. They were the true heroes. Many Bostonians also opened their hearts and homes to runners who were stranded by the law enforcement lockdown after the bombing, giving them food, drink and warm clothes, and offering them places to shower and stay for the night. In a registry set up on Google, there were more than 8,000 offers of help by Monday night. If Fred Rogers, the late childrens television host, had still been around this week, he might have recounted some advice his mother gave him as a child when he saw upsetting things on the news. Look for the helpers, she said. You will always find people who are helping. An attack on one of Americas signature sporting events in one of its proudest cities like a more deadly attack on the nations government and finan-cial capitals a dozen years earlier illuminated some enduring traits in the national character. For all their flaws, Americans are a compassionate, gen-erous, and often heroic people. What a contrast to the cruelty and cowardice of those behind Mondays attack.

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org W hen Pat Summerall was a senior at Columbia High School in 1948, an anonymous student wrote in the school newspaper an article predicting what various seniors would be doing in 10 years, in 1958. Pats prophecy was that he would be playing professional football for the New York Giants in 1958and sure enough he was! Since Pat died so recently, on April 16, and since he was CHSs most famous graduate, here are a few odds and ends of his life that may not be generally known. He was a saxophonist in the CHS school band and also performed in two school plays, A Date With Judy and The Fighting Littles. He was a member of CHSs only state basketball championship in 1947 and later was offered a bas-ketball scholarship to the University of Kentucky. When he graduated from Arkansas, the NFL Detroit Lions offered him $6,000 a year with a $500 signing bonus to play pro foot-ball with them. He did not try to negotiate and simply took the first offer. As a senior at Arkansas, he led the nation in field goalswith four for the entire season! He broadcast the first Super Bowl, which was held in the Los Angeles Coliseum. Tickets cost $12 and there were 41,000 empty seats. Q Orlando Sentinel Pat Summeralls prediction fulfilled To the Editor: On April 22, Girl Scouts will honor their volunteers on Girl Scout Leader Appreciation Day dur-ing National Volunteer Week.

By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comA Fort White man was arrested after sheriffs dep-uties found drugs in his car after he was pulled over for having music playing too loudly, according to a Columbia County Sheriffs Office arrest report. Brandon Kyle Sauls, 18, of 622 SW Bangor Way, faces charges of posses-sion of marijuana and pos-session of a controlled substance without a pre-scription, according to the report. Deputy Kyle Keen was parked along State Road 47 at the intersec-tion of County Road 240 on Thursday at 1:43 a.m., the report said. He had the win-dows down and his patrol car running when Sauls car approached. When it was still more than 200 feet away, Keen wrote, he could hear plainly music coming from the car. Keen pulled the car over at the intersection of SR 47 and SW Bishop Road, and approached the passenger door. Three passengers plus Sauls, the driver, were in the vehicle, according to the report. Keen smelled a strong odor of both burnt and green marijuana emitting from the passenger com-partment of the vehicle, according to the report. The passengers with Sauls were all under 18 years old. The front-seat passenger had pieces of marijuana stuck to his shirt and in his lap, according to the report. When deputies searched the car, they found pills of the prescription drug Xanax and three rolled marijuana cigarettes. The juvenile in the frontpassenger seat admitted the marijuana was his but said the Xanax was not his. Because he cooper-ated with deputies, he was taken home to his mother, the report said. However, a warrant affidavit on the juvenile was sent to the state attorneys office, according to the report. The other two juvenile passengers were released to their parents, according to the report. Sauls was taken to the Columbia County Detention Facility where he was held in lieu of $11,000 bond. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, APRIL 21, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-04246A 934 NE Lake DeSoto Circle, Lake City, FL(Next to Courthouse) Woman suing county, officials By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comA Columbia County woman has sued the coun-ty and two county commis-sioners in federal court for alleged violations of her First Amendment rights. Barbara Lemley sued the county commission as well as former commis-sioner Jody DuPree and current commissioner Ron Williams in U.S. District Court in Jacksonville. Lemley seeks monetary damages, a declaratory judgment and injunctive relief. The suit was served on county officials April 9. According to the suit, at a March 2011 county commission meeting, DuPree spoke venom-ously and disparagingly about Lemley while she was in the audience. The suit alleges DuPree threat-ened Lemley when he said he would make sure that every friend you got knows what you tired to do, according to the suit. At an April 2011 county commission meeting, Williams also spoke dis-paragingly about Lemley when he told the audience that he had seen Lemley plunderin around his truck and when he said I dont put it past you to plant drug[s] or put explosives on my truck, according to the suit. The suit alleges the county commission, through DuPree and Williams, infringed on Lemleys First Amendment rights by publicly humiliating her at two board meet-ings, and engaged in a custom of unconstitu-tionally retaliating against citizens for public speech on matters of public con-cern. Because of those practices, a person of ordi-nary sensibilities would be deterred from speak-ing at county commission meetings, the suit alleges. The suit also accuses the board of retaliatory actions against Lemley, supposed-ly to deter her from speak-ing at county meetings. The boards actions caused Lemley emotional pain, economic losses and other damages, according to the suit. Williams and DuPree declined to comment on the suit. County Manager Dale Williams said the suit had been forwarded to the countys insurance provider, and he is waiting to hear back from them before proceeding. Phone calls to a number listed as Lemleys were not returned. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comColumbia County officials are attempting to purchase 55 acres of property near the Columbia County Detention Facility and the public works department, but have been asked to beat a dead-line to complete the deal. During Thursdays county commission meeting at the Columbia County School Board Administrative Complex auditori-um, commissioners unanimously voted in favor of the purchase, pending the results of an environ-mental study. The property is north of the county jail near the public works department. The property, which consists of three parcels, was owned by the Corbitt Manufacturing Co., which produced mulch, but the property is now owned by a bank after Corbitt went out of busi-ness. The bank offered to sell the 55 acres to the county for $120,000. The deal is contingent upon the county closing by May 7. That could be problematic for government because we have all these laws, County Manager Dale Williams said. According to documents from the county, the parcels have a combined value of $964,800 based on information from the Columbia County Property Appraisers Office. The documentation indicates, excluding wetlands and flood areas, 29.8 acres of usable prop-erty exists. The site falls within the service area of the Bayfield Mitigation Bank and the county owns 27 credits in the bank where it could transfer wetlands. With the mitigation credits, the county could replace wetlands on the property and make new wetlands in another area. Williams said the property contains infrastructure electri-cal service panels and a loading dock with an elevated scale. County employees visited the site and found several items, such as wood, wood byproducts, bags of mulch, dye to color the mulch and pallets, left by its previous owner. Because of whats stored on the property, I think the county almost has to have an environ-mental assessment done on it, Williams said. Its going to take at least 10 days to two weeks to have that completed even on a rush basis. So, time is of the essence. Williams estimated the total cost to of deal after the envi-ronmental study and closing costs would be about $135,000. He said with clean-up of the prop-erty, the total could be in the $145,000 range. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comHundreds of local residents have made com-mitments to support can-cer survivors and cancer research by fundraising for more than 18 hours at the American Cancer Societys Relay For Life event next weekend. The Columbia County Relay For Life take place from 6 p.m. Friday to noon Saturday at the Columbia High School football field. The theme for this years event the 16th to be held locally is Tailgating For A Cure. Kim Nicholson, Relay For Life volunteer event chairwoman, said several teams have decorated actu-al tailgates with sporting event type props. One teams whole booth looks like the back of a pickup truck and another team made a bench out of tailgates, she said. All of our teams are very cre-ative. At least 43 teams are scheduled to participate in this years fundraiser. The goal is $77,000. Last year, local teams raised about $75,000. Nicholson said throughout the year, several teams conducted fundraisers. including Corrections Corp. of America, which held a softball tournament in early April, raising more than $1,100; a Survivor Tea Party at the Womans Club and the Lake City Middle School team started the Flush Cancer fundraiser. Volunteers also visited the Hope Lodge in Gainesville, where they cooked dinners for the cancer patients and caregivers. Volunteers also have scheduled the organi-zations second annual golf tournament on June 8 at the Country Club at Lake City. The purpose for the Relay For Life event is to fundraise for the American Cancer Societys programs and fund research to find a cure for cancer, Nicholson said. At Relay we celebrate survivors and what they have overcome, remem-ber those who have lost their battle and fight back against a disease that has taken too much. The event is open to the public and will have various activities throughout the day and night. Teams will sell food, chance drawings and have things to do the entire 18 hours. Nicholson said the event is scheduled to start off with Mayor Stephen Witt declaring it National Relay for Life Day, which will be followed by the first laps honoring survivors. The luminaria ceremony is at 9 p.m. and is a time to reflect on those we are honoring, she said. Other featured activities are face-painting, a bounce house, dunk tank, music from the Cross Tyz Band and a special butterfly release at 10:30 a.m. Saturday with more than 500 butterflies set to be released at one time. Cancer survivors can eat for free Friday night, cour-tesy of St. James Episcopal Church and again Saturday morning thanks to Beef O Bradys. This Relay event cant be missed, Nicholson said.

By Brandon Finleybfinley@lakecityreporter.comLIVE 0AK The show must go on. and it did despite cold temperatures and rain at the 2013 Wanee Music Festival at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. The eighth annual festival delivered the Allman Brothers Band, Widespread Panic, Govt Mule, Tedeschi Trucks Brand, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Hot Tuna, North Mississippi Allstars, Jaimoes Jasssz Band, Leon Russell and a plethora of other acts. Playing together for over 44 years, the Allman Brothers Band has head-lined the Wanee experience since the events first year. What a great weekend of music, Spirit of the Suwannee marketing direc-tor Teena Peavey said. The lineup, including the Allman Brothers, the camp-ing and the experience keeps people coming back. Wanee continues to grow nationally and internation-ally. With crowd estimates at 35,000 people for the week-end, its easy to see why Wanee is one of the big-gest music festivals in the South, and it has a little something for everyone. This is the fifth year weve been, Tommy Bundy of New Smyrna Beach said. The Allman Brothers are amazing. The venue is great and every-one is friendly. From teenagers to senior citizens, single people to families, the festival also provided something for everyone. We drove up as a family of four from Tampa to see Widespread Panic, Smith Ivans said. Its a sunset show so thats early enough to catch it and make it back, and early enough for the kids. While some patrons came for the day, others were there for the week-end and thats why many booths were set up selling arts, crafts and food for the patrons. I always like to see what people say about my art, Bonnie Goodson, a vendor, said. Its more important for me to hear what people think about it than it is for me to tell them. The festival ran Thursday through Saturday.

By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comMallory Jean Franey told police after they found marijuana, hash and LSD in the car where she was a passenger that she liked to trip every once in a while as a spiritual experience, according to a Florida Highway Patrol arrest report. Troopers with the FHP arrested Franey Thursday for possession of marijua-na and LSD, possession of drug equipment and mari-juana distribution, accord-ing to the report. An FHP trooper stopped a red Chevrolet Tahoe heading south on Interstate 75 near mile marker 412 because the driver fol-lowed another vehicle too closely, the vehicl had a broken windshield and a brake light that was not working, the report said. The trooper smelled either the odor of burnt marijuana or the smell of marijuana coming from inside the Tahoe when he began speaking with Cory Isbel, the driver of the vehicle, the report said. In the report, the trooper noted the three people in the vehicle appeared nervous. Probable cause to search the vehi-cle was obtained after a police dog alerted that drugs were in the vehicle, according to the report. Found inside were about two grams of marijuana, about a gram of hashish and five hits of LSD, which was tested and came up positive as LSD, according to the report. A glass pipe was also found in the car. Franey told police that the drugs and the glass pipe belonged to her, and she likes to trip every once in a while as a spiri-tual experience, the report said. By Christopher ShumakerSpecial to the ReporterFort White High School student Caleb Bundy was shocked when he found out the Columbia County public school system had named him its 2013 Florida Sunshine State Scholar. At first, I really didnt know the magnitude of what this accomplishment meant, Bundy said. I was surprised I won from the rest of the kids in the coun-ty. ... I guess they liked my record. He said it made him realize all of his hard work has been paying off. It felt good knowing that Im not just working for nothing, Bundy said. Only 81 other high school juniors across the state were honored this school year. Spearheaded by the Florida Education Foundation in the late 1990s, the award was designed to recognize stu-dent achievement in the areas of science, technol-ogy, engineering and math (STEM) while recruiting bright students for the states colleges and univer-sities. A two-day event recently was held for all of the states scholars in Orlando, Bundy said. The high school juniors got to see what their educational opportunities are in Florida. He said they also listened to presentations from some of Floridas larger busi-nesses. Business represen-tatives told them they should consider seek-ing employment in the Sunshine State working in the technology and engi-neering fields, Bundy said. Bundy wants to major in engineering at the University of Florida but is torn between mechanical and civil engineering. The conference was an eye-opening experience, Bundy said. After attend-ing, he said he realized he needed to keep his options open. He understands that engineering will require a lot of math and science but said he enjoys both and believes his school peers will have better futures if they work harder in those two subjects. It will help them to get better jobs, he said. When they are competing for a job, it will help them to get the job. On their resume, it will say that they have a certain level of math and science. This will go along with their degree. Bundy said there is always help out there for any student struggling in either subject, but he said his peers have to put effort in first and ask questions. Classmates just sit there and just shut down because they dont understand, he said. They think there is no way for them to get help. There are other stu-dents who understand it; there are teachers that are willing to help. Bundy was one of two students chosen to repre-sent FWHS at the county level. Two juniors from Columbia High School also competed for the honor. He said he was nominated by his sophomore math and science teachers. Each county got to choose its own criteria for determining which stu-dent represent the school system at the Orlando con-ference. A school spokes-woman said the finalists had to have at least a 3.9 grade-point average, as well as meet certain guidelines set by the Bright Futures Scholarship Program. Bundy said they also looked at his ACT/SAT scores and all of his extra-curricular activities. He plays tight-end on the schools football team. He is the acting president of his schools chapter of the National Honor Society and is a member of the Beta Club. One of the sponsors of the conference gave each of the STEM schol-ars his or her own iPad Mini. Bundy said he also received a crystal plaque. His entire family got free tickets to Universal Studios, and he was also recognized and given an award at a countys school board meeting. He hopes the honor also helps him into a college or university and receive a state scholarship. Im going to put it on my college resume too, he said. The colleges will look at it and say Oh, he was a Sunshine State Scholar, which means he excelled in math and science. Bundy said he hopes to receive his masters degree in engineering before seek-ing full-time employment in one of the states larger cities. He doesnt want to leave Florida but said he would go somewhere else if the money and job felt right.From staff reportsUtilizing state-of-the-art technology, Florida Gateway College is making sure its welding students are prepared for the future. FGC is incorporating virtual reality training into its welding curriculum beginning this sum-mer, a cost-saving measure that will also expedite the training process for students. The $50,000 equipment was grant-funded, at no cost to the college. FGC is one of few colleges in the state to begin utilizing this training in its classes. The VRTEX 360 Virtual Reality Welder is designed by VRSim, in conjunction with Lincoln Electric. The system was developed by the military to train its welders, and in recent years has been intro-duced to the general public for training purposes. The virtual reality trainer is meant to teach welders the prop-er techniques for passing their welds for certification, said Joe Ganser, FGC welding instructor. The computer-based training system is an educational tool design to supplement and enhance traditional welding training. The virtual reality helmet provides students with a realis-tic, 360-degree experience that places them into the heart of warehouses and other facilities. While wearing the helmet, every turn of the head presents some-thing different to the left may be a man operating a forklift, to the right, an operating crane. In front of the student is a virtual welding bench which mirrors the distance to the bench that comes with the machine. The welding gun and stinger, which provide tactical feedback and add a little more realism to the simulation, appear on screen as well when in the helmets line of sight. From there, students can take part in various welding processes and positions more than 100 in all and instructor tools allow modification based on preferred welding program and style. The magnetic tracking system provides accurate measurement for student evaluation various criteria are provided for a final score at the end of a weld and visual cues can provide real-time technique feedback, helping them in areas where they may struggle. This doesnt change the curriculum we run, but it does enhance it, Ganser said. So far, the students love it. Its pretty realistic in what it does, and the things they learn on it directly translate to the shop. Additionally, the VRTEX 360 allows instructors to record, reply and archive to verify student work and performance, which in turn can be shared with the rest of the class. It ties into our overhead projector, so I can have a student making a weld and teach it to the entire class at once, Ganser said. I can break it down and show it over and over again. I can show someone when and where they may have made a mistake, and use the visual cues to help cor-rect them. Whereas before Id have to get into a welding booth to do a demonstration with a stu-dent one on one and hope they understood what I am trying to get them to see. With this technology, I can see what the student is looking at while they are on the VRTEX 360 and direct them in real time as they are completing the weld. With this, I think students will have a better understanding of what theyre looking for and have more confidence when they get out in the shop and do it for real. The system also brings with it cost savings there are no welding consumables or wastes, and the system itself tracks the savings throughout the course of a semester. According to a study by Iowa State University and Welding Journal, the VRTEX 360 saved an average of $260 per student over a two-week period. Welding education is an important program at Florida Gateway College, said FGC President Dr. Chuck Hall. Were proud of our students who pass the different levels of certification for welders and then go on to make a good living making welding as their career. This new program intro-duces our students to the state-of-the-art in welding and prepares them for jobs at any location. Were excited that our students have this opportunity.

By DAVID WARRENAssociated PressPLANO, Texas Veteran sportscaster Pat Summerall was remembered Saturday during a memorial service as the voice of the NFL and a venerated figure who maintained a humble approach despite the praise his broadcast work received for decades. Thousands gathered Saturday at a Baptist church just north of Dallas to pay tribute to a broad-caster who called some of the most memorable games in NFL history, and also was known for his cover-age of Grand Slam tennis tournaments, the Masters golf tournament and other sporting events. The former NFL kicker died Tuesday at age 82 of cardiac arrest at a Dallas hos-pital. With his deep, resonant voice, Summerall called 16 Super Bowls and was the primary television play-by-play voice of the NFL. Former NFL analyst John Madden said Saturday that his broadcast partners steady presence made Summerall the voice of the league. Madden was seen by many as the storm along-side Summeralls calm. The two teamed for 22 years cov-ering games for CBS and then more briefly for Fox.Summerall honored at memorial service Summerall

Fort White split with both Santa Fe and Interlachen during the season. The Indians also split with Williston while sweeping Bradford and Keystone Heights. Fort White surged into the season, starting 9-1 in the first month. A slump that began in mid-March had the Indians losing six of seven games. In the last two weeks, Fort White is 3-2 including a solid win over Melody Christian Academy on Senior Night. Senior leader Kevin Dupree was nursing a sore knee last week, but got the go-ahead to play on Thursday and had a pair of hits. He might not be able to be behind the plate for us, but we need him in there, Rizzi said. We need his bat.

Ulsh said the Tigers will have to be at the top of their game to win the district. Weve got to put everything together, he said. Weve seen bits and pieces of it here and there. Weve got to pitch better and play better defense. And the coach wont reveal a starting pitcher, but did indicate where hes leaning.

Every year I wonder how (the tournament is) going to go, said Anne Scaff, S&S owner. And every year is better than the one before. This years tournament benefited the Foundation for Florida Gateway College and Catholic Charities. Both organizations received $32,500 from the event. Charities selected for the tournament are ones that survive on donations. We try to pick wherever there is a need, she said. The Foundation for FGC and Catholic Charities both do a great job for the peo-ple in the community, said Lester Scaff, S&S owner. The tournament started off with supporting the Foundation and has contin-ued to do so each year. The golfers not only enjoy playing the game, but seeing the Scaffs and sup-porting the charities, said Michael Lee, the Foundation for FGC executive director. The money the Foundation receives will be used to cre-ate the Lester and Anne Scaff Endowed Scholarship Fund in Perpetuity to show its appreciation of all their contributions to the college over the years. We appreciate so much what Lester and Anne Scaff do for the students we serve, he said. Catholic Charities presented the Scaffs the 2013 Dove Award for their out-standing service to the community. The organi-zation will use its portion of the proceeds for the Feed a Family Mobile Outreach, which provides food to the five counties it serves. This will enable us to help end hunger in Columbia, Suwanee, Hamilton, Union and Lafayette counties, said Suzanne Edwards, chief operating officer. The sponsors and golfers are an important part of the tournament and help provide the money to make the event a success. All the sponsors are from out of town and bring money into the communi-ty, Anne Scaff said. Overall, it was a great tournament this year, Lester Scaff said. Everyone seemed to have a good time, he said. Were very pleased and blessed with the turnout. We have a great bunch of participants.

Patrick Weaver, county website developer, said many of the new features on the website were done to make county govern ment more efficient. He said many departments in county government are running slim and trim, and if the public takes advantage of these new features, it will reduce some of the workload for departments that have had staff reductions. Weaver also rede signed Columbia Countys Economic Development Departments website, www.ccfl.edd.com. Weaver said the work was done in house, which saved the county money. He developed programs that allow the public to view some county records directly from their home computers, he said. I work with different departments to try and get them what they need, he said. Some of the new features will save residents and con tractors time and money because they can eliminate trips to county offices. Its an effort to make County website gets new features, increased utility.

Underneath the surface, environmentalists and sci entists fear there may be trouble, from tiny organ isms to dolphins.

By MICHELLE CHAPMANAP Business WriterNEW YORK SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. made a splash Friday in its first day of trading on the New York Stock Exchange. The owner of theme parks famous for water shows featuring killer whales and dolphins jumped $5.99, or 22 percent, to $32.99 in afternoon trading, after the company and its backers raised $702 million. The initial public offering of 26 million shares was priced at $27 per share, which was at the high end of the expected range of $24 to $27 per share. The IPOs size also increased from the 20 million shares that SeaWorld and its owner, private equity firm Blackstone Group LP, had hoped to sell. The pricing of the offering and boost to its size suggests that there was solid demand for the shares. The first SeaWorld opened in San Diego in 1964. It was bought by beer giant Anheuser-Busch in 1989 and combined with the brewers Busch Gardens park in Florida. The company has grown to span 11 theme parks housing 67,000 animals. Besides the three SeaWorld parks, the company owns two Busch Gardens parks, several water parks and Sesame Place, an amuse-ment park based on the childrens TV show Sesame Street. It had net income of $77.4 million on revenue of $1.42 billion in 2012. Francis Gaskins, president and editor of IPODesktop.com, said SeaWorld is an iconic brand that is appealing in part because its properties are particularly kid-friend-ly, even more so than those of peers like Six Flags and Cedar Fair LP. SeaWorld had warned in a December filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission that its busi-ness is dependent on customers willingness to spend on leisure and entertainment. The com-pany has managed to do well despite lingering con-cerns about the economy and high unemployment in the U.S. Its revenue has risen since it was bought by Blackstone in 2009. 2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 21, 2013 2CBIZ/MOTLEY THE SOUTHEAST LARGEST COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVAL Present Sheryl Crow Rodney Atkins Florida Georgia Line Eli Young Band Randy Houser Easton Corbin www.SuwanneeRiverJam.comTickets Available at Tickets Available at LIVE OAK, FLTICKETSSTARTING AT$40Music Starts at 7pm On May 1st!4 Nights of Camping on the Beautiful Suwannee River...

a well ruptured April 20, 2010, spilling 200 million gallons of crude. The oil fouled 1,110 miles of beaches and marsh along Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Fishing waters were closed and thousands of people who depend on the Gulfs deep blue waters wondered if the coast would ever be the same again. Crews contin-ue to find oil buried under-neath beaches whenever a tropical storm stirs up the Gulf. Visually, the coast looks great, and I think most of what was visible is gone, said David Muth, director of the National Wildlife Federations Mississippi River Delta Restoration Program. Still, oil sheens penetrated deep into marshes, wor-rying Muth. The micro-organisms and the smallest inverte-brates, theyre all eating the grasses and eating each other, he said. Some of those persistent chemicals just get built up, and as each creature comes along and eats it, the toxins can be amplified right up the food chain until you get to the top predators, like dol-phins and sea turtles. More than 650 stranded dolphins have been found since the spill, Muth said. But those deaths started two months before the disaster and its not clear what is causing them or how much the spill may have contributed. Federal biologists have said the one consistent thread was a bacterial infection. Turtle deaths also are being looked at, but the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has said many probably drowned in shrimp nets. Nearly every aspect of the spills environ-mental impact is under review, though much of the research cannot be released because its likely going to be evidence in an ongoing trial. The trials first phase ended Wednesday with-out any rulings from the judge who heard eight weeks of testimony from witnesses for the federal government, a team of plaintiffs attorneys, BP, rig owner Transocean Ltd. and cement contractor Halliburton. The first phase was designed to identify the causes of BPs well blow-out and assign percentages of fault. The second phase, set to start in September, is supposed to determine how much oil spilled into the Gulf and examine BP and Transoceans efforts to stop the gusher. Damage can take years to show up. Herring popu-lations looked normal after Alaskas Exxon Valdez oil spill in 1989, but by 1993 there were only one-quarter as many spawning adults as in the late 1980s. In Bay Jimmy, erosion has been a problem, but that was the case long before the spill. Different studies have come up with different answers about whether the spill increased the rate of erosion. One found double the rate when heavily oiled parts of Barataria Bay were compared with more light-ly affected areas, though the effect faded after 18 months. However, scientists at the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium labo-ratory in Cocodrie did not find such a stark contrast in the Barataria Bay marshes they studied, assistant pro-fessor Alex Kolker said. Were still crunching numbers. I still want to dot all my is and cross all my ts. But nonetheless I feel comfortable telling you we dont see a large differ-ence, he said. As the studies continue, so do cleanup efforts. On the beach at Grand Isle, crews were still finding tar balls washing ashore. They were also drilling through the sand to find deposits of oil. The spill, which fouled white-sand beaches along the Alabama coast, seems a distant memory at Sportsman Marina in Orange Beach, said gen-eral manager Brian Wells. Located near the Florida line on a cove off Perdido Bay, the marina specializes in storing and fueling boats for private anglers. Its add-ing a new bar and has about 50 more boats than this time last year, Wells said. Nearby, restaurants are opening and condominium buildings are under con-struction. Weve had a really good spring, Wells said. Boat counts are up, business is up.Associated Press reporter Janet McConnaughey reported from New Orleans. Jay Reeves contributed to this report from Birmingham, Ala.By JOAN LOWYAssociated PressWASHINGTON Federal officials intend to lift the order grounding the beleaguered 787 Dreamliner after accepting Boeings revamped battery sys-tem even though the root cause of battery failures that led to a fire on one plane and smoke on another remains unknown. The Federal Aviation Administration said Friday it would send airlines instructions and publish a notice next week lifting the 3-month-old grounding order that day. Boeing will then have the go-ahead to begin retro-fitting planes with an enhanced lithium ion battery system. Dreamliner flights could resume within a week, the agen-cy told members of Congress. Boeing said it has stationed teams around the world to begin installing the fix. The FAA gave Boeing permission last month to test the revamped system, which includes additional insulation around each of the batterys eight cells to prevent a short circuit or fire in one of the cells from spreading to the others. The new system also includes enhanced venting of smoke and gas from inside the battery to outside the plane. A strength-ened box to hold the battery is an effort to ensure that if a fire were to occur, it wouldnt escape to the rest of the plane. Boeing has completed 20 separate tests of the new system, FAA Administrator Michael Huerta told Congress earlier this week. Boeing had delivered 50 planes to eight airlines in seven countries when a fire erupted in a battery aboard a Japan Airlines 787 parked at Bostons Logan International Airport on Jan. 7. The FAA and other authorities grounded the entire fleet after a second incident nine days later led to an emergency landing by an All Nippon Airways 787 in Japan. Boeing said new batteries and kits with the parts for the new battery systems are ready to be shipped immediately. The 787s will get the fix in approximately the order they were delivered, Boeing said. The Boeing team is ready to help get our customers 787s back in the air where they belong, said Ray Conner, who runs Boeing Co.s commercial airplane division. The grounding also halted 787 deliveries. They were expected to resume in the weeks ahead, after it installs the changes on planes at the two factories where theyre assembled, Boeing said. It still expects to hit its target of delivering at least 60 787s this year, and that the battery issue will have no significant impact on its financial guidance for the year, the company said. The FAAs action directly affects United Airlines, which is the only U.S. airline with 787s in its fleet. But aviation authorities in other countries are expected to follow suit swiftly. United Airlines already has domestic 787 flights sched-uled for May 31. Spokeswoman Christen David said no other schedule changes have been made yet. Its launch of Denver-to-Tokyo Narita flights is still planned for June 10, but that will depend on installing the battery fix by then, she said. We are mapping out a returnto-service plan, and we look for-ward to getting our 787s back in the air, she said by e-mail. LOT Polish Airlines spokesman Marek Klucinski noted that they need permission from the European Aviation Safety Agency to resume flights. He said they hope that a decision on Friday would mean they can resume flights in the middle of next week. LOT has two planes, one in Warsaw and one that was stranded in Chicago by the grounding. The 787 is Boeings newest and most technologically advanced plane. It is the worlds first airliner made mostly from lightweight composite materials. It also relies on electronic sys-tems rather than hydraulic or mechanical systems to a greater degree than any other airliner. And it is the first airliner to make extensive use of lithium ion batteries, which are lighter, recharge faster and can hold more energy than other types of batteries. Boeing has billed the plane to its customers as 20 percent more fuel efficient than other midsized airliners. Thats a big selling point, since fuel is the biggest expense for most air-lines The planes grounding on Jan. 16, an enormous black eye for Boeing, marked the first time since 1979 that FAA had ordered every plane of a particular type to stay out of the air for safety reasons. UBS analyst David Strauss estimated last month that the 787 will cost Boeing $6 billion this year. Besides the battery prob-lems, the plane already costs more to build than it brings in from customers. United has six Dreamliners, plus another 44 on order. American and Delta have also ordered 787s. Boeing has orders for more than 800 of the planes from airlines around the globe. The 787 has two identical lithium-ion batteries, one of which is located toward the front of the plane and powers cockpit electri-cal systems, the other toward the rear and used to start an aux-iliary power unit while the plane is on the ground, among other functions. It was the battery toward the rear that caught fire and gushed smoke on the plane in Boston, which had recently landed after an overseas flight. It was the other battery toward the front that failed on the plane in Japan. Every item that is part of an airplane, down to its nuts and bolts, must be certified as safe before FAA approves that type of plane as safe for flight. The two events have raised questions about why the FAA and Boeing didnt uncover problems with the batteries before the FAA certified the plane as safe for flight in 2011. In recent years, the FAA has relied to a greater extent on designated employ-ees of aircraft makers to con-duct the safety testing necessary of certification. Some aviation safety experts have questioned whether FAA has the in-house expertise to oversee the safety of cutting-edge technologies that havent been in planes before.

ASSOCIATED PRESSMcDonalds Corp. reported higher profits in the first quar ter of 2013, but failed to get an expected sales boost from its Dol lar Menu promotion effort.McDonalds fails to boost sales with Dollar MenuBy CANDICE CHOIAP Food Industry WriterNEW YORK McDonalds managed to eke out a higher profit for its first quarter even as the worlds biggest hamburger chain failed to lift sales with its Dollar Menu. The company said Friday that an important sales measurement fell 1 per-cent during the period and warned that its expected to dip again in April. That marked the first quarterly decline in a decade in sales at res-taurants open at least 13 months and underscored the troubles the company has been facing. As Burger King and Wendys have stepped up their marketing over the past year or so, McDonalds has responded by aggres-sively touting its Dollar Menu and other value deals to hold onto customers in an industry where imitation is rampant. The strategy has caused concern among analysts who worry that it could eat into profit margins. Its also rankled some McDonalds franchisees, who operate the vast majority of its res-taurants in the U.S. But in a conference call with analysts Friday, McDonalds executives insisted that offering cheap-er prices was necessary in the current climate. Since the restaurant industry is barely growing, they said McDonalds needs to steal customers away from rivals to grow. That battle for market share has become so criti-cal for the long-term health of business, were willing to sacrifice that margin, said Peter Bensen, the compa-nys chief financial officer. Although profit margins declined during the first quarter, McDonalds noted that it picked off market share in many parts of the world, including the U.S. But there are signs such deals arent sitting well with the independent franchi-sees who operate restau-rants. A survey by Janney Capital Markets released this week found that a sam-pling of 25 U.S. franchisees who collectively operate 180 McDonalds restau-rants on average rated their relations with the company below their historic levels. Janney said some com-plained about excessive coupons and discounts.

By DEREK GILLIAM email@example.com A bout 1,000 trees will be given away at Memorial Stadium, by the Lake CityColumbia County Beautification Committee on Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in celebration of national Arbor Day. This year, the committee was able to obtain a wide variety of trees. They include 100 trees of each of the following: red bud, Dahoon holly, red cedar, black walnut, red maple, live oak, southern magnolia and river birch. There will also be 150 dog wood trees. Bettye Lane, chair of the beau tification committee, said there is a two-tree limit, and because of the popularity of the dogwood trees and the limited number of them, each person may get only one dogwood. The National Arbor Day Tree Giveaway started in 2000 in Lake City, and always draws a large crowd, with many people lining up hours before the starting time, Lane said. Its kind of a social hour, Lane said. ... We are just so happy about the good the trees do and the relationships that we cultivate just in that line. The first year the city and county gave away trees, the com mittee had about 400 trees, Lane said. The next year it was 800 and by 2006 the number had grown to 2,900. In the beginning, the tree giveaway was chaotic. It was con ducted across from the Columbia County Court House, and there wasnt a well-thought-out system for passing out the trees. Lane says the kinks were fixed at the second tree giveaway. We talk about how it was and how it is now, she said. Now, its just smooth like machine work. People in line are given a paper with a list of the kinds trees available and they check off two trees they want. The participant registers on a computer, then the trees are wheel-barreled away, Lane said.

By BETH J. HARPAZAP Travel EditorNEW YORK Carnival Cruise Lines announced a $300 million program to add emergency genera-tors, upgrade fire safety and improve engine rooms on all 24 of its ships. The announcement could help the brand begin rebounding from a wave of bad publicity that began in February, when an engine fire knocked out power on the Carnival Triumph. Passengers endured filthy conditions as the Triumph was towed to Mobile, Ala., resurrecting stories of a similar incident from 2010 aboard the Carnival Splendor. Cruise sellers say prices for Carnival cruises have dropped as minor incidents with other Carnival ships have also made headlines. Emma Jupp, president of Liberty Travel, which does about 25 percent of its business booking cruises, applauded the announce-ment. This is an important and well-timed decision by Carnival Cruise Lines that will provide both added reassurance and value to Liberty Travels strong base of cruise customers, she said. Carnival said the first phase of improvements involves installing an addi-tional emergency gen-erator on every ship to ensure operation of safety equipment and services like plumbing, fresh water and elevators in a power loss. The extra temporary generators will eventually be replaced by permanent generators. Carnival is also installing high-pressure upgrad-ed water mist systems on all ships to improve fire safety. All of those mea-sures will be completed in 18 months, Carnival CEO Gerry Cahill said in a phone call Wednesday. Final upgrades will take longer, requiring drydock-ing to reconfigure cables that connect each ships two engine rooms, among other measures. That way, if one engine room goes out, the other will be unaf-fected. Carnival Cruise Lines parent company, Carnival Corp., owns a total of 10 cruise lines, including Princess, Holland America and Cunard. The company said all 101 ships from all brands will be assessed to see if similar upgrades are warranted. Carnival Corp., based in Doral, Fla., also owns Costa Cruises, whose Costa Concordia ship sank in 2012, killing 32 people. Weve operated 8,000 or 9,000 cruises in the last six years, said Cahill, the Carnival Cruise Lines CEO. The vast majority of them offered a great vaca-tion experience. We failed on two. But were going to make these investments to reduce the possibility of it happening again. Earlier this week, Carnival took another step toward repairing its reputation, saying it would reimburse the U.S. gov-ernment for costs incurred by the U.S. Coast Guard and Navy in helping the Triumph and Splendor. ticket, because I see fine written all over you. I laughed so hard and wait-ed to see if they produced any results. After finding a ramp for beach access, we made our way down onto the beach to ride. We had the waves and waders on one side and lots of cars with out-of-state plates on the other side, accompanied by the tents, chairs, blankets and people. I was enjoying the fresh air and being away. It was more of the same for the boys, looking for girls. The jacked-up trucks were also fascinating to the boys. They commented on the make, the model, how high it was jacked up, the size of the tires and the sound of the bass coming from the stereo. The trucks were also sexy their word, not mine. These two boys could not be more different, Austin is all rap/pop, with his Nike slides and black socks, flat-billed, snap-back hat, the magnetic diamond studs in his ears and a tank top. His friend is all country with his camou-flage hat, T-shirt with rebel flag and boots. Yet, when it comes to the beach, the girls and the trucks they are mostly the same. It was interesting to see their differences yet also wit-ness the similarities. When we perused the souvenir and T-shirt shops, some of the same things also interested them. In fact, they both bought tank top shirts with Free Hugs silk-screened on them. I encouraged them not to wear them at the same time; it was tak-ing it a step too far. After they wore them out on the beach, I asked them how many hugs they got. Their heads hung low and they shook their heads indicat-ing none. It was truly one of the funniest things. Overall it was a good, relaxing trip for me. I spent some time lounging by the pool, walking the beach and reading. I was happy to have the boys along for the ride, too. It was an educational experi-ence for me to see how the mind of a teenage boy works on spring break. It was also another opportu-nity for me to spend time with Austin before he outgrows me. And by the way, the one liners didnt work. 2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, APRIL 21, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-04242DLIFE Stop by the Lake City Reporter for your complimentary engagement package.

Theyre every-where. But the question is, should they be allowed at school? I, being the teenager I am, say yes. However, I dont mean we should be allowed to use them during class. Thats a distraction for other people as well as ourselves. But whats wrong with using them during lunch when we just want to listen to music or tell our parents we want to stay after school? It doesnt dis-tract from learning when were in the lunch room, and it cant do any harm to anyone else. That goes for class changes too. I have seven minutes in between classes, which is plenty of time to send my mom a text and make it to class, way before the bell rings. I mean, in all my years of school Ive never been tardy to a class because I couldnt get from one side of the school to the other fast enough. Again, I dont want to be able to use my phone in class, just during times when there isnt a good excuse as to why we cant. Im not saying the school should change the whole rule, just tweak it a little so we, as high schoolers, get a little more freedom with our phones and music players. Madison-RoseM y opinion on whether we should be able to use electronic devices on our free time in school is a definite no for several reasons. One reason is those students who do not bring an electronic device to school have to sit and watch their friends using their devices rather than socializing. Another reason is most electronic devices are expensive and could get stolen. My main reason for believing it is not a good idea to have elec-tronic devices at school is because students can get in trouble for what websites they get on. I think students should wait until after school before using any electronics at all because they can be distracting, and we are at school to learn, not to play games. KaylaE lectronics, it isnt just teen-agers that use them every day. But adults do too. I totally believe that we as student should be able to use electron-ics during school. Hello, look around. The world of smartphones is taking over. I personally dont use a calculator. I use my phone, but I cant during school. Its just a hassle. If my arrangements for how Im getting home changes. Then my mother has to wait until she can call the school. Who then makes a note of her call. Then they have to find what class-room Im in; interrupt my entire class to tell me. Then just hope I remem-ber where Im going. Whereas my mom could take 30 seconds to text me the change and if I forget its in my phone. Electronics in school isnt some foreign thing nobody has ever heard of. Many schools across Florida and the nation allow their student to use their phones and other electronic devices during school. As long as they dont use it during testing I definitely think that Lake City should make the change to allowing elec-tronics in school. CathleenT ap, tap, tap, thats the sound of elec-tronics when someone is using them. Schools do not allow students to use electronics during the school day. I understand that as it can be a distraction and a tool for cheating. However, during lunch and in between classes, I believe that students should be able to use their electronics, be it phones, kindles, or iPods. If a student needs to call home to find out if they are bus or car, or if theyre going to practice that day, it would be easier to call between classes then take time from the class to call. During lunch, we eat, some people talk, but oth-ers sit and daydream with nothing to do. Im one of those people. If I do not have a specific friend, or two, to talk to, I have noth-ing to do during the 15 to 20 minutes left of my lunch. It would be nice to read my Kindle. This is why I believe that electronics should be allowed to be used at school for times outside of class blocks.

Lighthouse to open after major makeoverBy MARTHA WAGGONERAssociated PressRALEIGH, N.C. About a decade ago, the Bodie Island Lighthouse was in rough shape. Filled with wasps, the stairs to the top wobbled and the glass in the lantern room was bro-ken. Iron work had rusted from rain. After a $5 million makeover, the Bodie (pro-nounced bah-dee) Island Lighthouse opens Friday to public for the first time in its 141-year-old history. The 214 steps to the top are safe and the 344 hand-cut glass prisms of a 19th century lens have been cleaned so that the complex system can once again cast light 20 miles out to sea. The lighthouse stands among pine trees and marshland, and people who have climbed it say Bodies finest feature is its unimpeded view of marsh, the Atlantic Ocean and the Pamlico Sound. Its one of the few lighthouses where you can climb to the top and look in every direction, and it could be 1900, said Bruce Roberts, co-founder of the Outer Banks Lighthouse Society. There are no intrusions of highway trucks or gas stations. Bodie is one of the true lighthouses where you have the feeling that it looks as it did 100 years ago. The lighthouse is one of about 15 in the country that still has its original Fresnel lens and one of only a dozen lighthouses that is at least 150 tall. Three others are also in North Carolina, including the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, located just south of Bodie Island. Carnival plans ship improvements

Affordable lunch available in our cafe. W e have slowly moved from the colorful show of blooming aza leas everywhere to the fresh green color that says spring has indeed arrived. And what a long, beautiful season it was for azaleas this year. The early winter warm spell fooled many plants, includ ing our seasoned azaleas, into early blooming. The typical winter frosts may have browned those early blooms, but the azaleas retaliated with a second explosion of color. I always enjoy search ing the countryside in the spring for the large, mag nificent azaleas of the past. These lovely specimens are usually found growing near the remains of an old cracker house, or near the faded memories of one. They are tough, survivor plants that have remained alive and healthy without supplemental water, fertil izers or pesticides. A native to Japan, the Indica azalea grows to a height and width of eight to 12 feet. By the mid1800s, there were gardens in South Carolina with large and varied collec tions of these plants. Many of their descendants, the southern Indica hybrids, are now common through out the South and are available in most garden centers. Beautiful red, pink, white, purple and salmon hybrid azaleas are at home in informal and natural settings. If you admired your neighbors azaleas this year, maybe its time to plant a few while theyre still on your mind. Another year could slip by and you still wont have your own azaleas. Container-grown azaleas can be planted any time of year, provided you faithfully water them a couple times per week until they are established. The garden centers are still stocking a great selec tion of colors and sizes. Plant azaleas in welldrained, acidic soil, keep ing the top of the root ball slightly above soil level. Have your soil tested before planting so you can use the appropriate amend ments to adjust the soil pH. Bring a soil sample to the Columbia County Extension Office for a free soil pH test by the Master Gardeners. Azaleas prefer filtered sun or speckled sunlight, but they wont bloom well if the shade is dense. Place them so that they are not in the direct, early-morn ing sun. After freezing nighttime temperatures, the plant tissue needs to thaw slowly or the bark can split and cause die back. If you have azaleas, now is the time to do some light pruning, if needed, to shape up your plants or keep them dense. Always prune your plants in late spring or early summer, shortly after flowering, because azaleas set their flower buds for next year during the summer. Its also time to apply mulch and fertilize with a con trolled-release, acid-form ing azalea fertilizer. There are many land scape uses for azaleas, and a wide selection of species and cultivars that grow well in our climate. Find more information at www. solutionsforyourlife.com.

By AMY LORENTZEN Associated Press Your dishwasher, sink drain and garbage disposal do the major dirty work in your kitchen, and you can keep them smelling fresh and running efficiently with a few easy steps. If there are spots or stuckon grime on the dishes when they come out of the washer, or if the sink has an unpleasant odor even after you clean it and run the dis posal, it means these hardworking appliances may need extra attention. Dishwashers and drains battle kitchen waste and activity daily, which can take a toll on the appearance and performance if not cleaned correctly, said Chris Salatino with Kenmore Major Appliances. DISHWASHERS Electric dishwashers have a filtration system that requires regular cleaning, especially if you dont scrape or pre-rinse dishes. The maintenance on a dishwasher depends on how you treat it, says John DeSilvia, host of DIY Networks Rescue My Renovation. If youre not a pre-rinser, he recommends cleaning the filter once a month. Just look at the bottom of your dishwasher, find and remove your filter, then scrub away debris with a soft brush. Rinse and reinstall. Dont be scared, its real ly easy, says DeSilvia. If in doubt, check your owners manual on how to find and remove the filter. Cant find the instructions? Log on to your manufac turers website. Or online tutorials at sites such as DIYNetwork.com and YouTube.com can help you through the process. The interior of your dish washer may also appear filmy at times. To get rid of that buildup, Salatino advis es waiting until the washer has finished a cycle and cooled. Then make a paste with powdered detergent or use liquid detergent on a damp sponge to wipe away mineral deposits. Follow up by running a normal cycle. If youre in a hard water area and wiping with deter gent doesnt remove all the film, run a normal cycle with 2 cups of white vinegar in an upright glass on the lower rack. Salatino advises turning off the heated dry option during the cycle. There also are commer cial cleaners marketed espe cially for mineral buildup in dishwashers. Consumer Reports rec ommends replacing worn or rusted dish racks, and using care when loading dishes and silverware so you dont damage spray arms. Inspect the arms to make sure they arent clogged with debris. Use pipe cleaners to dis lodge blockages. DIRTY DRAINING If youve got a smelly drain, theres probably bac teria growing in it. To eliminate the problem, start by mixing a cup of baking soda and a cup of vinegar. Pour the mixture down the drain, let it sit for 15 minutes or more, then run the disposal and rinse with hot water. To clean disposal blades, freeze white vinegar in ice cube trays and let the dis posal grind away at them. The ice will help dislodge stuck-on debris, and the vin egar freshens the unit. If theres still an odor, try pouring in half a cup of bleach, but not if you have a septic system. You may need to go buy a live enzyme product that eats away bacteria, or a cor rosive cleaner meant to unclog drains. If your sinks drain plug has moldy buildup, soak it in a vinegar or bleach solution, then wipe away any remain ing grime. If mold builds up again quickly, replace the plug. Home improve ment stores should offer styles that fit your sink, and some even stock scented versions. THE GRIND The crunching and gnashing of your disposal may make you leery of touching it, but there are ways you can keep it run ning well without calling a professional. DeSilvia says to always run cold water before, dur ing and after using the dis posal. Never use hot water with your garbage disposal, he says. It breaks down food, causing it to liquify and accumulate around your pipes. Its best to scrape large pieces of food into the trash can, then let the disposal take care of smaller scraps. Dont put potato peels, shellfish, coffee grounds or other fibrous foods into the disposal. Theyre clog-mak ers. DeSilvia reminds hom eowners never to put their hand in the disposal. If it wont grind, use the reset button, usually a black or red button on the bottom of the unit. Make sure the out let the disposal is plugged into is working. If the disposal seems jammed, use the Allan wrench or similar handcrank tool that comes with the unit to give it a push start. If you cant find yours, many hardware stores carry them. Most service calls can be avoided by simply reset ting your disposal, DeSilvia says. Press the button and you are good to go. Just saved yourself $300 bucks for a service call. By DEAN FOSDICK Associated Press Looking for some help in the garden? Many of natures most useful crit ters lie literally at our feet, underappreciated and ignored despite their abil ity to eliminate insects, condition soils and polli nate plants. Turtles, moths, moles, dragonflies, snakes, toads and spiders are among the many wild things that can help maintain a landscape. The payback is minimal food, water, shelter, and easing off on harsh lawn and garden chemicals. I believe in teamwork, using all the creatures that live in your garden, said Sharon Lovejoy, author of Trowel and Error (Workman Publishing, 2003). Start from the ground up with night crawlers as part of your workforce. Add to the earthworms already in your plant beds with commercially avail able red worms. Build a worm bin or a place where they cant get out, Lovejoy said. Use all of your leftovers your kitchen compost. Worms can process up to 6 pounds of garbage in a week. Grow an assortment of native plants, which will draw a great many bird species, Lovejoy said. Add plant hosts as food for butterfly and moth lar vae. That list would include milkweed (monarch butterflies), borage (green lacewings), sunflowers (ladybugs) and yarrow (hoverflies). Many insects in the larval stage are vora cious predators. Green lacewings as juveniles are aptly named aphid lions because of their appetite for the sap-sucking pests. I would certainly place spiders near the top of underappreciated life in the garden, said Whitney Cranshaw, an exten sion entomologist with Colorado State University. Although sometimes I think it is less that they are not appreciated but rather people dont want to think of them. Spiders are credited for as much as 80 percent of all predator control in the garden. Jumping spiders, wolf spiders, lynx spiders and crab spiders are the standouts, Cranshaw said. Also great garden help ers are: Toads. Harmful insects make up 62 per cent of a toads daily food supply, said Lovejoy, who stacks rocks and wood in secluded spots to shelter toads, frogs, turtles, sala manders and lizards. Dragonflies that can capture over 400 mosqui toes a day. Moles. They eat their body weight in insects, slugs and grubs while aerating the soil, Lovejoy said. Sphinx wasps that can pollinate 200 flowers in less than seven min utes, Lovejoy said. Snakes. Most snakes about 99 percent of those found in gardens are harmless. Natures full of garden helpers ASSOCIATED PRESS Dishwashers handle a lot of dirty work. Regular maintenance and a few tricks can improve cleaning efficiency and prevent malfunctions, experts say. Tips for maintaining the three Ds: dishwashers, drains and disposals ASSOCIATED PRESS Toads, turtles, moths, moles, dragonflies, snakes and spiders are among the many wild things that can help maintain a landscape yet most go unappreciated or ignored despite their ability to kill insects, condition soil and pollinate plants. Simple steps can help keep them working right. In the Kitchen

DEAR ABBY: My husband has ice water with every meal. During break-fast and dinner he loudly crunches all of the ice in his glass throughout the meal. I have asked him not to do it at the dinner table, but he thinks Im being unreasonable. I usually eat in another room and wear noise reduction head-phones. Im deaf in one ear and have only about 60 percent hearing in the other. Am I selfish to ask that he not crunch while Im sitting next to him? -HATES THE CRUNCHING IN NEW MEXICO DEAR HATES THE CRUNCHING: I reviewed your letter with an expert was told that hypersensitiv-ity to sound can occur as a result of hearing loss. If you havent discussed this with a specialist, you should, because your prob-lem may be related to your limited range of hearing. If you wear a hearing aid, it may be amplifying the noise. Also, because you find your husbands habit irritating, you may think you are hearing more noise than you actually are. For him to persist in doing something he knows annoys you is not only insensitive, but also rude. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I have been reading your and your mothers columns for many years. After hear-ing about her passing, I want you and your family to know you will be listed in my prayers in the days ahead. I thought you might be interested to know some of the lessons I have learned from reading your column. They are: 1. Dont blame your server for bad food. Always be polite and send compliments to the chef when applicable. 2. Its YOUR wedding; you dont have to invite drama mama and long-gone dads unless you want to. And do NOT ignore Stepmom. 3. Its never too late to change bad habits. Today is a good time to begin making healthy new ones. 4. Kindness is always important. Do it randomly if you must, but do it often. Pennies are a gentle reminder of heaven. 5. Being the other woman is a dead-end job. No matter what he says, the odds are he is never going to leave his wife. 6. Workplace romances are usually doomed. Dont risk it unless you want to find a new job. 7. Counseling is a good thing. Dont suffer for years or in silence. Get some help today. 8. Reconcile and forgive estranged parents IF YOU CAN. You dont have to be dysfunctional because they are. 9. Pursue that thing you dream of now. Youre going to get older anyway. Which would you regret more, doing something or not doing it? 10. You deserve to be loved. Start with yourself, become the best that you can be and live until you die. -CYNTHIA B. HOPSON, LEBANON, TENN. DEAR CYNTHIA: Your letter made me smile. Thank you for sending it. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): A change regarding an issue you have with a friend or colleague will be confusing. Consider your choices before you initiate a change. Take a moment to take care of yourself mentally, physically and emotionally. A healthy regime will make a differ-ence. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Enjoy the people who count most in your life. Love is on the rise and a serious discussion will bring about the changes you want to initiate. You can cut your costs if you look at alternative lifestyles. Collaborate with someone you love. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take a closer look at your personal papers and your financial posi-tion. Get things in order to avoid costly expenditures. Secrets will lead to trouble. You are best to be open and direct with your questions and your answers. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): What you do for others will in turn bring you satisfaction, rewards and favors. Romance is on the rise, and making special plans for two should be your intent. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Restlessness is evident, but dont let it lead to mak-ing a foolish decision or move. Bide your time and see how situations devel-op. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Love, emotions and spending time with someone you think is special should be your goal. Sharing places and pastimes you enjoy will enhance any relationship you cherish. A day trip will lead to a memorable jour-ney. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Do whatever it takes to lower your overhead. Changes you make to your residence should encour-age saving money or give you the space to use your skills or talents to earn extra cash. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Express your emo-tions and settle a personal matter that has been both-ering you. Readdress a contract or agreement you have with someone. Love is highlighted. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Someone you least expect will annoy or intentionally mislead you. Do your own legwork and avoid a mishap that can ruin your plans and your day. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your home is your castle. A lifestyle more conducive to your personal plans must be ini-tiated. Love and romance are on the rise, and work-ing as a team player with your colleagues and loved ones will help you achieve your goals. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Move forward with caution. You must be precise in the way you con-verse. Sending the wrong signals or making the wrong impression will lead to delays that can upset your plans. Stick to the truth and be open regard-ing your intentions. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): How you earn your living may need to be reevaluated. Consider ways to add new skills to your resume or turn some-thing you enjoy doing into a sideline business. Love and romance are in the stars +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Parrot5 Jumping-on-amattress sound 10 What hist. and econ. majors get 3HOpVJLYHQQDPH18 Jesus, for one6RPHQDYHOV,WVWDUWVHYHU\ March in N.Y.C. 22 New Age pianist%XPPHU2QHSD\LQJDIODW rate 25 Mountain-climbing hazard 27 Actress Lorna28 Contracted agreement 29 No longer fit in.LWFK\BBB32 Lead-in to meter33 2012 film title character who wascomputer-generated 34 Italian Renaissance FRPSRVHU*LRYDQQL 3URYRNH,WVKLJKLQ:HVW Africa 40 Some rechargeables:RUOGO\ILJXUH"2GRUBBB1DYDOIOLHU47 Reach, as new heights 48 Sufficient, in 0DFEHWK 2WKHUZRUOGO\"*RYWDJHQW6XUYHLOODQFHRUJ-RLQLQDZD\55 Lasagna cheese/RYH0H,PD /LEHUDOVLQJHU 3DUW\RUJ7KH0DWUL[KHUR64 Lb. and oz./LQJXLVW&KRPVN\6D\WKDWDJDLQ"&KLFDJRPD\RU Emanuel 6LWWLQJDUHD"%URDGZD\WLWOHUROH IRU$XGUH\Hepburn 7UL%H&DQHLJKERU7KHBBB/RYH (R.E.M. hit) 2IFRXUVHVHxRUBBB%DOOVE\JRQH VQDFNFDNHV 6HYLOODFKHHU7RSSHU%ODFNELUG$UFKHUVZRRG source 83 Panther figurine material 84 51-Across forerunner 85 Carrier to Amsterdam 87 More spine-tingling89 OPEC nation FXUUHQF\ 91 Circus tent %XUQVLQWKH NLWFKHQPD\EH 3RQWLDFVWULEH,NQRZWKH DQVZHU 99 Writer Santha Rama BBB 5HVSRQVHWR, SURPLVH,ZLOO 102 Words of denial103 Where cruisers cruise 107 Free3NJLQVHUW109 Phone pad letters3XVK\W\SHV"111 Dutch painter Vermeer 112 Collection of Norse tales $XQWRIV79.QLWWHUVVWDVK'U\DVDERQH7KHSOHDVXUHBBB PLQH )UDJUDQWQHFNODFH(VWHYH]RI +ROO\ZRRG 5LFH$BBB122 Apartment rental sign %HQHILWVDJF\7KH\DUHLQ Spanish class 125 Org. for some good GULYHUVDown 1 Ring site/DG\%LUG-RKQVRQV real first name HGXFDWLRQDO Van Halen song %XPS*UDPP\ QRPLQDWHGVRQJE\WKH9HUYH 1HZ
