Officials look for ways to cut claims, reduce extra premiums resulting from excess payouts. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comTwo interviews conducted with convicted murderer Richard Franklin by state Department of Corrections personnel immediately after the stabbing death of Columbia Correctional Institution Sgt. Ruben Thomas III were suppressed in court Friday. Franklin, who is serving two life sentences for first-degree murder and robbery with a firearm in 1994, is accused by prison officials of stabbing Thomas in the neck with a homemade weapon on March 18, 2012. On Friday, Third Judicial Circuit Judge Paul Bryan granted a motion from the public defender’s office to suppress the information during a pre-trial hearing in Court Room 2 at the Columbia County Courthouse that lasted less than 20 minutes. Franklin could face a death sentence if convicted of Thomas’ death. Bryan accepted an agreement between the state attorney’s office and public defender’s office to sup-press the information from two interviews taken at CCI immediately after the inci-dent occurred. Public Defender Blair Payne said corrections per-sonnel secured Franklin after the incident and put him in the medical building at CCI, where he was interviewed two times — in a commons area and in a conference room. Payne said there are questions whether Franklin was properly informed of his constitutional rights before the interviews.

She passed away, and Catalfa missed the last prescription drug take-back day. He said he knew flushing them down the toilet would be bad for the water supply. “I’ve been waiting six months to get rid of these,” he said. The Lake City Police Department and Columbia County Sheriff’s Office participated in the National Take-Back Initiative sponsored by the federal Drug Enforcement Administration. By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comOver the past 10 years, Columbia Cunty has paid more than $1.2 million in additional pre-miums for workers’ compensation insurance because the county’s compensation claims reflect bad safety practices, according to county records. County employees, including those in the sheriff’s office and other constitutional offices, are covered by the county’s policy. Lisa Roberts, county administrative manager, said a number of factors determine the cost of workers’ compensation insurance. The state sets mandated rates, but there’s also a modi-fication to that rate that looks at employer’s claims in four-year increments. Last year, the county received a penalty of 24 percent or $88,652 on top of the regular cost of workers’ comp insurance. Penalties levied against the county have fluctuated the past 10 years from a low of 12 percent penalty or $72,787 in 2009 to a high of 29 percent or $202,394 in 2007. The workers’ comp premium decreased from a high of $905,810 in 2007 to 422,514 in 2011. The actual premium fell as the state set lower rates, but the penalty premium has stayed at or above 20 percent for all but three of the last 10 years. County Commissioner Stephen Bailey called the situation unacceptable. “We have got to implement a good, solid safety program into the county to drive these HEARING continued on 3A CLAIMS continued on 3A By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comI n 2005 Dawndi Pincus, of Lake City, was diag-nosed with cervical cancer and her doctor told her she only had six months to live. “I looked at the doctor and told him, ‘You’re not God, and I’m going to fight this’,” she said. “I found a really good doctor and a really good support system, went through treatment and I’ve been seven years strong and I beat the cancer.” Although Pincus survived her bout with cervical cancer, her mother Joyce Pincus, lost hers last year when breast cancer turned into lung cancer and finally spread into her brain.

AROUND FLORIDA Friday: 8-11-20-41 18 Friday: 9-10-22-26-32 Saturday: Afternoon: 7-7-8 Evening: N/A Saturday: Afternoon: -7-2-8-5 Evening: N/A Wednesday: 12-14-27-30-36-44 x3 Legislators work to reach deal on $74B budget TALLAHASSEE Florida legislators have signed off on a long line of spending items, covering everything from tuition hikes for college students to pumping in money for the states environmentalland buying program. But they are still racing against the clock to finish up work on a number of high-profile items, includ ing pay raises for state workers and a final deci sion on how to parcel out a $480 million teacher pay raise. House and Senate bud get negotiators are work ing through the week end to put the finishing touches on a proposed $74 billion budget. They must wrap up their work by Tuesday in order for the session to end on Friday. Thats because state law requires the budget to be on the desk of lawmakers 72 hours before a final vote is taken. The final budget will cover spending from July 2013 to June 2014. Sen. Joe Negron, RStuart and Senate budget chief, said he hopes nego tiators will sign off on a pay raise plan for state workers on Saturday. The Senate initially pitched a 3 percent across the board pay raise, while the House proposed a $1,000 pay raise with an additional $400 bonus that would be given out next year. There have also been discussions about giving a larger pay raise to highway patrol troopers as well as employees who work in the states prison system. Budget negotiators did on Saturday sign off on a proposal to put $88 mil lion more into the states Medicaid program to help the states nonprofit hospi tals as they adjust to a new billing system set to take effect this summer. Late Friday, budget negotiators agreed to a 3 percent tuition hike this fall. They took this step even though Gov. Rick Scott has been adamantly opposed to any hike. Panel vote hurts vehicle fee cut TALLAHASSEE Prospects for a proposal to roll back automobile fees in Florida became murkier Friday when a state House panel voted to phase in the reductions, putting it at odds with a Senate version that calls for a rollback all at once. The version approved by the House Appropriations Committee also preserves a decades-old tax break for insurance companies. Those companies pay a state tax on insurance premiums but also get a rebate worth 15 percent of the salary paid to their workers. The Senate wants to eliminate the tax break to make up for lost money from the lower vehicle-reg istration fees. Senate President Don Gaetz sounded pessimistic about the bills prospects after the House panel rewrote it with a week left in the 60-day legislative session. Im sorry that the House Appropriations Committee saw it differ ently, but thats the way the process works, he told reporters. The House panels approach to the bill (SB 1832) calls for a five-year phase-in of the fee reduc tions, eventually saving an individual driver $12 a year on annual registration once fully implemented. Rare butterflies may be extinct MIAMI Federal wild life officials are reviewing a South Florida butterfly survey that concluded five rare species may be gone for good. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service hired entomologist Marc Minno to perform the survey. In reports filed late last year, Minno concluded that the Zestos skipper, the rockland Meskes skipper, the Zarucco duskywing, the nickerbean blue and the Bahamian swallowtail had disappeared from the pine forests and seaside jungles of the Florida Keys and southern Miami-Dade County, the only places where some where known to exist. Minno said he spent six years on a survey that was only supposed to take two. He said neither he nor other butterfly experts ever saw these species in any stage of life, from lar vae to adult butterfly. Federal officials said it may be too early to declare the butterflies extinct or at least missing from their only known habitat in Florida. Biologist, Mark Salvato, said some butter fly species have vanished in the past but then made surprise reappearances years later. Dead humpback washes ashore CANAVERAL NATIONAL SEASHORE Researchers are testing the remains of a humpback whale that washed ashore in central Florida for con taminants. A boater spotted the estimated 40-foot-long humpback whale carcass Wednesday in Canaveral National Seashore. Researchers from the Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute have been col lecting organs and bones spread across the beach, including 18-inch-wide vertebrae. The bulk of the whales carcass was left in a remote area to wash back out to sea. Research assistant Teresa Mazza tells Florida Today that the whale likely died about a week ago. Man flees while jury deliberates WEST PALM BEACH A South Florida man fled as jurors were deliber ating on his third-degree murder case. The Palm Beach County jury found 33-year-old Niklas Prokopishen guilty Friday afternoon, but he wasnt in court to hear his verdict. The judge issued a warrant for Prokopishens arrest. Authorities say Prokopishen fatally shot 24year-old Francisco Roman in January 2010 at an apart ment Roman shared with his girlfriend. Prokopishen went to the apartment with a gun after the girlfriend called him about an argu ment she had with Roman. The Palm Beach Post reports that Prokopishen had been in court earlier Friday but was free on $10,000 bail. Whether hes present or not, he faces life in prison at his May 24 sentencing. NASHVILLE, Tenn. America loves its outlaws, and few are as admired and lionized as Willie Nelson. As the enduring American icons 80th birthday has approached, hes been honored with lifetime achieve ment awards, serenaded at special performances and saluted by musi cians from every genre of music. And Nelson has taken it all in with a bemused smile. Its a nice thing to do for some one on their birthday and I appreci ate it, Nelson said in a recent inter view aboard his bus. Usually I like to forget my birthdays as much as possible. The singer whose birthday is Monday or Tuesday Nelson says April 29, the state of Texas claims April 30 occupies a unique space in Americas cultural memory. A walking bag of contradictions, he wears his hair long in braids and has a penchant for pot smoking, yet remains arguably conservative coun try musics greatest songwriter. Hes accepted by left and right, black and white and is instantly recognizable to a majority of Americans. Like few other music stars, his image has grown to represent more than the notes hes played or the lyr ics hes written. Like Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash or Frank Sinatra, hes become a figurehead for a uniquely American way of thinking. He repre sents the outlaw and the maverick. If Elvis was all about the pelvis and the sexual revolution, Nelson is American independence: the raised middle finger tossed with a twinkle in the eye. Nelson didnt set out to be a folk hero, as Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum calls him. He spends something like 200 days on the road still, a pace that challenges men a quarter his age. Country superstar George Jones dies NASHVILLE, Tenn. When it comes to country music, George Jones was The Voice. Other great singers have come and gone, but this fact remained inviolate until Jones passed away Friday at 81 in a Nashville hospital after a year of ill health. Today someone else has become the greatest living singer of traditional country music, but there will never be another George Jones, said Bobby Braddock, the Country Music Hall of Fame songwriter who pro vided Jones with 29 songs over the decades. No one in country music has influenced so many other artists. He did it with that voice. Rich and deep, strong enough to crack like a whip, but supple enough to bring tears. It was so powerful, it made Jones the first thoroughly modern coun try superstar, complete with the substance abuse problems and richand-famous celebrity lifestyle that included mansions, multiple divorces and to hear one fellow performer tell it fistfuls of cocaine. But when you dropped the needle on one of his records, all that stuff went away. And you were left with The Voice. That voice helped Jones achieve No. 1 songs in four separate decades, 1950s to 1980s. If we all could sound like we wanted to, wed all sound like George Jones, Waylon Jennings once sang. Hill says she signed with Sony to pay taxes NEW YORK Lauryn Hill says she has signed with Sony to pay her overdue taxes. Hill pleaded guilty last year to not pay ing federal taxes on $1.8 million earned from 2005 to 2007. The 37-year-old post ed on her Tumblr blog late Thursday that she signed a new record deal, and that I did this to pay taxes. The total Hill owes is in dispute, but it is around $1 million. Her next court date in New Jersey is May 6. Hill also says shes working on new music. She hasnt released much music since her 1998 solo debut, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. It has sold more than 10 mil lion albums and won five Grammy Awards.

during the interviews, Franklin mostly grunted and didn’t give any details about the incident. David Phelps, assistant state attorney, told the judge that the state attor-ney’s office did not object to suppressing information obtained during the inter-views. Jeff Siegmeister, Third Judicial Circuit state attor-ney, was at the hearing but didn’t speak. Phelps said Franklin, said he did not want to talk after the stabbing but DOC personnel continued to question him. He said Franklin was not informed of his right against self-incrimination. Siegmeister said there were several reasons why his office didn’t contest supression of the two CCI interviews. “Some of reasons are tactical, and primarily the statements didn’t have any what we believe to be significant, relevant evidence,” he said, dur-ing a phone call Friday afternoon. “Based on how, where and what was in the statements, the statements were more confusing that useful.” Payne also filed a motion to hold statements Franklin may have made at a third interview at Florida State Correctional Institution in abeyance or to suppress them as well. Franklin was moved to the state prison after Thomas was killed. Payne said questions persists whether Franklin was properly told his con-stitutional rights before that interview, too. Siegmeister said the transcripts of that inter-view are more than 50 pages long and the deci-sion on that interview will be rendered as they get closer to trial. “Just because the transcripts are 50-plus pages, the redaction of it would have taken the lawyers unnecessary hours today (Friday) and that’s why we postponed that,” he said. Siegmeister said the suppression of statements does not hurt the state’s case against Franklin. “We conceded it,” he said. “It wasn’t evidence that would have been help-ful if it could have come in (the trial). It absolutely is not necessary for our case to succeed. “These (interview statements) are absolutely unnecessary to prove the charges against Mr. Franklin,” he continued. “It won’t affect the case in any substantial way.” The next hearing in the case is slated for May 31. According to reports, Thomas was checking on an inmate in one of the prison’s dorms at about 10 p.m. March 18, 2012, when Franklin attacked him. DOC officials said a control room officer saw Franklin chase and then stab Thomas several times in the neck with a handmade weapon.

WRECK: Four injured Continued From Page 1A CLAIMS: Officials look for ways to lower costs Continued From Page 1Arates down,” Bailey said. “And as you can see, it will pay for itself.” County employees have had 170 claims from the last 10 years totaling $2,103,885 in medical expenses for strains or similar injuries — by far the largest claims category. A distant second is falls or slips, with 90 claims and $901,146 paid by the insurance. Cuts, punctures and scrapes account-ed for 46 claims and $256,682. Bailey said the county commission needs to make sure employees know the proper way to lift heavy equip-ment, and the more physically fit the county work force is, the less likely injuries are to occur. He said the county should emphasize the need to be in shape. “If we are not physically fit, we are more susceptible to any type of injury.” By far, the most injury-prone county employee group is law enforcement. That profession incurred $1,457,528 in medical expenses from 248 claims over the past 10 years. Street and road workers appear to suffer the most serious injuries, just 109 claims cost $1,257,511. The next three coun-ty job classes with the most claims are excavation and drivers, building operations maintenance and ambu-lance services at a cost of $270,000 for each over the 10 years. Roberts said the modification rate should drop some because the coun-ty signed a contract with Lifeguard Ambulance Services in May 2011. Lifeguard employees are not part of the county insurance plan. But because the modification rate looks at claims from the previous four years, it will take another two years before the effect of claims from the county ambulance service is entirely gone. “It will take a period of time before you will ever actually see a change in the modification rate,” Roberts said. The county does receive some discounts for having a written safety manual and being a drug-free work-place, Roberts said. Also, the county has a safety director who makes sure county employees have the correct training and equipment for their jobs, she said. Other solutions Roberts said the county is in the process of implement-ing are a review of existing safety policy, posting corrective action rec-ommendation on employee bulletin boards and holding bi-monthly work-place inspections with the county insurer. Roberts said Preferred Governmental Insurance Trust, the county’s workers compensation insurer, would hold those inspections free of charge. She suggested implementing a discipline policy for violations of safety procedures by county workers. Another option, she said, would be to include the cost of workers compensation insurance in the bud-get of the constitutional officers so the elected officials in those offices will be motivated to implement good safety practices. RELAY: Hundreds participate in local anti-cancer fundraisi ng event Continued From Page 1A“I here for my momma tonight,” she said. “I maybe a survivor, but my momma was my angel.” Pincus, with purple dye in her hair and purple fingernail pol-ish, was one of more than 150 cancers survivors who partici-pated in the Columbia County Relay For Life event Friday-and Saturday at the Columbia High School football stadium. Kim Nicholson, county Relay chairwoman, said this year’s event was extremely successful, placing the county’s among the top Relay For Life fundraisers in the area. “We found out we were number one in fundraising in the North Central Florida area,” she said. “The only area we’re competing with right now is Ocala. We’ve done really well this year.” The fundraising goal for the county Relay was $77,000, and Nicholson said it looked like the goal will be exceeded, when funds from a golf tournament in June are added. Relay For Life is an 18-hour event designed to raise money for cancer awareness and can-cer research. The event begins with a Survivor’s Lap, during which people who have been diag-nosed with or are recovering from cancer are celebrated. Organizers estimated 175 to 180 cancer survivors participated in activities Friday. At 9 p.m. a luminaria ceremony was held to allow participants to remember and honor others who lost their battles to cancer. “Our luminaria ceremony I thought was great,” Nicholson said. “We had a singer, and at most luminaria ceremonies, they do not read all the names, but luminaria chairperson prefers to read all the names because, even though it takes quite a long time, it gives us the time to remember the people we’ve lost to cancer. During that 30 minutes, it’s time for us to remember our lost loved ones.” The group launched five floating luminarias Friday. Pincus said it’s important to celebrate and recognize cancer survivors through the annual fundraiser. “To come to this event is like being with a crowd of people who have been through the same experience I’ve been through,” she said. “We’ve been through the emotional ups and downs. When you have people like the people you see out here around you and you make friends with them, they help you, build you up and give you the faith so you know you’re going to make it.” Pincus also offered words of encouragement to others who been diagnosed with some kind of cancer. “To anybody that’s going through cancer or who has just been diagnosed: Keep your head high, keep your spirits bright and know there are peo-ple out here who will always be there for you,” she said.

By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comA Jacksonville man was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly stole a Playstation 3 video game system from a Lake City home he was visiting. Jonathan Mascarelli, 33, of 1445 Flagler Ave., Jacksonville, took the Playstation from Andrew Green, 54, if 233 Marley Glen, according to the arrest report. Columbia County Sheriff’s Deputy Kevin Bailey learned from Mascarelli’s sister, Kristin Mascarelli, that her broth-er stole the system and was hiding in a residence at 134 Marley Glenn. the report said. Bailey smelled burning marijuana when he entered the home, accord-ing to the report. He found Mascarelli sitting on the bed holding a small glass pipe and blue bag. Bailey confiscated the pipe and an bag, which contained suspected mari-juana, the report said. After being arrested, Mascarelli told Bailey that he was at Green’s home doing drugs. He said he stole the game system because he had given Green some crack cocaine and Green refused to pay for it, the report said. Mascarelli was charged with grand burglary, mari-juana possession, drug equipment possession and larceny. He was taken to the Columbia County Detention Facility. His bond was set at $17,000.

A rbor Day is a special day that has been observed for over a century, a day to plant trees and think about all the things that trees provide us, our communities and our nation. National Arbor Day is celebrated on the last Friday in April every year. One hundred and forty one years ago, in Nebraska, Arbor Day had its beginning. On January 4, 1872, Sterling Morton, a member of the State Board of Agriculture, and later Governor of Nebraska, introduced and secured the adoption of Arbor Day, a day set apart and consecrat-ed to tree planting. Statewide pub-licity was given on that occasion, and more than one million trees were planted on the first Arbor Day in Nebraska. There are many ways in which trees can substantially improve our environment. Through the marvel-ous process of photosynthesis, trees take on carbon dioxide and return pure oxygen to the atmosphere. Trees also function as filters by absorbing and collecting air borne pollutants, such as smog, smoke, odors and dust. Trees planted in rows around homes or in urban areas can serve several functions. Trees as wind-breaks can protect homes from the full force of damaging winds. Rows of trees planted along a busy highway can effectively reduce high noise levels. A screen of green and growing trees can shield unsightly areas. Several trees properly placed on the south and west sides of your home can function as a natural air conditioner to cool your home in the summer. One tree can produce the cooling effect of several average room air conditioners. Trees do this by providing shade and absorb-ing and reflecting solar radiation. A stand of forest trees provides benefits for both man and wildlife. A forest stand is the natural home of deer, squirrels, birds and other woodland dwellers. For many peo-ple, forests symbolize havens and food for wildlife. For many people, forests can be a tranquil place. A pleasant stroll through a lovely wooded area can provide a soothing retreat from the crush and press of the workaday world. What do trees mean to Florida? The forests of Florida are among the most valuable assets Floridians have. Trees are a renewable resource, a unique wealth. Florida’s forests cover almost one half of the state, provide more than 5,000 products and by-products, support a $13.95 billion dollar industry and provide 76,000 jobs. This economic value is important, as well as the human values and priceless benefits that we receive from the forests. To foresters, Arbor Day is a time to think about planting, growing, and harvesting forests. Before a forest is harvested foresters are planning for a whole new forest cycle – how to prepare the land for planting, which tree seedlings to plant, how to plant them, how to protect and keep the forests healthy. To loggers and truck drivers that haul logs and wood products, Arbor Day is a day to remember that trees and forests are renewable resources that provide good jobs that keep rural communities alive and work-ing. To firefighters, Arbor Day is a time to reflect on the ability of for-ests to renew themselves and grow again after wildfires. For children, Arbor Day is a time to plant a tree that will grow with them. For adults, Arbor Day is a day to beautify their communities and mark life’s special celebrations. National Arbor Day was Friday. But whenever you plant a tree – and whether you plant a forest or a single tree – each and every one stands as a living reminder that we are stewards of the land.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman Nearly three weeks after the arrest of his wife and another woman for alleged voter fraud during the 2010 election here, Lake City Councilman Eugene Jefferson still hasn’t spoken pub-licly on the matter. Jefferson won his 2010 re-election bid easily, with 69.7 percent of the vote. Still, his constituents have questions.First they want to know if he had knowledge of this alleged voter fraud scheme. If not, they want to hear him say it loud and clear. As for his wife, she is innocent until proven guilty, and the court system will determine her fate. If Jefferson believes her to be wrongly accused, he should say so. However, he has chosen to maintain his silence on that matter as well. As a city councilman, Jefferson is bound by the will of those he has sworn to serve. He should answer their questions and reassure them, if he can, that their trust has not been breached. Jefferson should break silence on 2010 electionWhat does Arbor Day mean to you? OUR OPINION LETTERS POLICY Letters to the Editor should be typed or neatly written and double spaced.

BY EMAIL: Summerall prediction fulfilled Editor’s note: The following column ran last week in shortened form due to space limitations. It appears here in its entirety.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. Pat’s ‘prophecy’ was that he would be playing professional football for the New York Giants in 1958—and sure enough he was! Since Pat died so recently, on April 16, and since he was CHS’s 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 per-formed in two school plays, “A Date With Judy” and “The Fighting Littles.” •He was a member of CHS’s only state basketball championship in 1947 and later was offered a basket-ball 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 goals—with 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.MORE ON PAT •When Pat played football at CHS, he had a fragile nose so the coaches had a ‘nose guard’, now called a face mask, made for him. Later Stanley Anders (CHS 1952) wore that same helmet and so did Florence Weeks (CHS 1950) when she played in an all-girls ‘powder puff’ game. •When Pat was at Arkansas, he played both varsity football and basketball (which he considered his better sport). He made all Southwest Conference in both. •In 1958, Lake City held a ‘Pat Summerall Day’ and had a parade. In 1971, United State Congressman Don Fuqua read a tribute to Pat into the U.S. Congressional Record. •In May 1962, Pat held a free place-kicking clinic at CHS. Three who attended were Jerry Hewett, Robert ‘Tank’ Robertson, and Ham Mathis, Jr. •He facilitated friend New York Yankee legend Mickey Mantel’s admission into the Betty Ford Rehab Clinic. •He was in a New York City skyscraper working on the publication of his book “On and Off The Air” when the terrorists flew the two planes into the Twin Towers. When Pat was teaching at Lake City Junior High School, he formed a special friendship with Wanda Bond, school secretary. Wanda, a widow, was admired by Pat and so many others because she raised five children in a small house and on a minimum income. When Wanda retired, Pat took off several hours during an extremely tight weekly schedule to come to Lake City to attend Wanda’s retire-ment party—and even privately offered to pay off the mortgage on her small home. That’s just one example of Pat’s love of his hometown and his extremely generous and giving nature.AL’S ALLITERATIONSSiloam United Methodist Pastor Al Donovan is a fine Gospel preach-er and also a wordsmith of the first order.

By AMANDA WILLIAMSON The Rev. Ronald Walters says the Lake City commu nity needs to be strength ened through cooperation and progress, similar to the way Nehemiah rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem. Walters spoke at the 31st Annual NAACP Freedom Fund Luncheon held at the Winfield Community Center on Saturday. We can do this thing together, he said. We can build this community. We can put scholarships in childrens hands, if we do it together. We might need to call CSX and tell them take up the railroad tracks because there are no bad people on this side of the tracks and good people on that side. We are all just people. ... We are all just people of God. The Freedom Fund Luncheon celebrates the goals of the Columbia County NAACP Branch, and raises money to help the organization continue to build the community for all races, all religions and all ages, said Patricia Brady, first vice president. NAACP is an organization united not by color, but by cause, she said. County Commissioner Ron Williams said he enjoyed the luncheon and the message. He felt it fit with the turmoil the NAACP has been going through in the past several months. Branch president Berneice Pressley was removed from office the national organization in January following a dispute with second vice president Debra White. NAACP reminds me at the current time of an old bay tree, Williams said. Its gone through a hurri cane, blown away, some of the limbs bent to the side. But I want you to know, the NAACP in Columbia County has great roots; theyre bedded in this community. The NAACP is here to stay. Membership remains the strong foundation of the organization, Linda Thomas, branch president, said. The luncheon helps to create unity, she said, and she hopes to continue the relationship between the organization and its members to make Lake City a better place for all people to live. Together, we stand; divided, we fall, she said. We have come a long ways, but we have a long ways to go. Supervisor of Elections Liz Horne encouraged the audience to register young people to vote and informed voters who had voted by absentee ballot previously that they need to call to request one if they want to continue voting that way. Tax Collector Ronnie Brannon reminded guests that drivers licenses are now being handled through the Tax Collectors Office. Between the various speakers, locals Quinisha Harrell and Walters daughter, Jasmine Walter, performed solo songs. The organization honored Dr. Tony Buzzella and LaQuita Griffin with the Community Service Award. If you dont hear any thing else I have to say, we have to keep going forward as a nation, Walters said. If you keep your hand in the Masters hand, we can make it. ... In spite of Jim Crow, we can make it. In spite of Republicanism, we can make it. He warned against gath ering negative help or of regressing. As each per son moves forward, obsta cles will block their way, Walters said. But the deep er the valley becomes, the higher the mountain on the other side, he said. Its not about black or white. Its about us, Williams said. Weve got to work together as people. By CHRISTOPHER SHUMAKER Special to the Reporter On April 2, 1513, Juan Ponce de Leon and his crew of explorers landed on Floridas east coast. Five hundred years later, Florida is recognizing de Leons arrival, with a year long anniversary celebra tion known as Viva Florida 500. Florida has the longest recorded history of any state in the nation, accord ing to state Department of State. It says Ponce de Leons arrival is unique because he and his explor ers were the first group of Europeans to document such a landing. They named this land La Florida. The statewide initiative highlights the 500 years of people, places and events that make the Sunshine State so culturally diverse. More than 150 events have been scheduled throughout the states 67 counties. One such event was on April 26 at the Columbia County Public Library, 308 NW Columbia Ave., to gather ideas from local residents on what should be placed in a time capsule that will be buried later this year. Katrina Evans, assistant director for the library, said the state gave a time capsule to each countys library and charged them with working on what to put in it, where it will be buried, as well as when the capsule should be unearthed. Its a great opportunity for us, Evans said. We started in January with an actor who portrayed Pedro Menendez. Weve had someone from the Florida Public Archeology Network doing programs on Florida history and Spanish Florida. Coming up, weve got programs about local history, about Watertown and Columbia County. The library worked with FOCUS downtown to put on last Fridays event. FOCUS downtown is a group of business people, building owners and individuals who want to see growth in downtown Lake City, as well as its revitalization. Events like Viva Florida 500 help build a sense of pride and community, Denise Paschal, the groups vice-president, said. I think every community in this state needs to know about its heritage and how it was built and born. Dozens of people turned out not only to share their ideas on what they would like to see put in the time capsule but to have cake and punch and watch a doc umentary on old Florida, too. City resident Sheri Daar said events like this definitely help to educate younger generations. She believes kids need to learn about Floridas history. They are tomorrows future, Daar said. ... Its important for them to find out where they came from and what others have had to endure so that they can have what they have today. Children are the ones that can make the changes that will help keep history going. Business owner Tammy Harris agrees with Daar. I was always told that in order to know where you are going, you need to know where you are com ing from, Harris said. There is still time to give ideas in to the library before the time capsule is buried, Evans said. Each of the librarys branches will have an area at the front desk where people can write down ideas on what they think should be in the capsule. People also can leave time capsule ideas on FOCUS downtowns Facebook page, Paschal said. For more information about local Viva Florida 500 events, contact any of the librarys branches, or stop by and pick up a flyer.

By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City woman faces fraud and forgery charges after allegedly cashing checks she stole from her grandmother. Pamela Porter, 23, of 268 SE Scarlett Way, tried to cash a $230 check belong-ing to her grandmoth-er, Marilyn Porter, at Campus USA Bank on Bascom Norris Drive, a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office arrest report says. Because the check was in Pamela Porter’s handwriting, the bank employee called Marilyn Porter. Deputy Kevin Bailey responded to the bank. While he was there with Marilyn Porter, the bank staff discovered a fraudu-lent $130 check used at Wal-mart recently cleared her account, the report said. Later, Marilyn Porter discovered checks had been stolen from another of her accounts, too. According to the report, the checks fraudulently written on that account totaled more than $503. Bailey arrested Pamela Porter shortly afterward. On the way to Columbia County Detention Facility, Pamela Porter told Bailey that she had stolen the checks to exchange for cash to fund her drug habit, the report said. Her bond was set at $35,000. From staff reportsColumbia County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public to help them identify a man and a woman who burglarized a county business Tuesday. The two broke into Green’s Marine and Sporting Goods, 1613 E. Duval St., and stole archery equipment, the sheriff’s office said. The man stands between 5 feet, 9 inches and 6 feet tall. He wore a dark, short sleeved shirt and combat camouflage pants. He had a short, dark beard. The woman is between 5 feet, 3 inches and 5 feet, 8 inches tall. She has a thin build and dark hair. The light colored pants she wore had a white stripe down each leg. She also wore a black, hooded shirt. Both suspects are white.The sheriff’s office asks that anyone with informa-tion about the crime to contact the office’ detective division at (386) 758-1095 or leave an anonymous message at (386) 754-7099. Callers may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000, according to the sheriff’s office news release. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comAs a teenager life is supposed to simple and care-free. However, when your teenage sweetheart is on the phone threatening to commit suicide, and you hear a gunshot and the call is disconnected, your life changes in an instant. Lizzy Brooks, a Suwannee County teen-ager, experienced that unthinkable tragedy when she listened to her boy-friend take his life with a self-inflicted gun shot wound. Eight months later, she was standing on the edge of a bridge, threatening to take her own life — the vic-tim of bullying by friends of her former boyfriend. Brooks tearfully told her story Friday during a brunch sponsored by the Suwannee Valley Victims’ Advocacy Coalition. The brunch, which took place at First Baptist Church, was attended by more than 30 people. The brunch was scheduled as a local event for National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, April 21-27. The theme for this year’s observance was: New Challenges; New Solutions. Michelle Johnson, regional victim advocate from the Attorney General’s Office and president of the Suwannee Valley coali-tion, said National Crime Victims’ Rights Week started in 1981. “It’s designed to bring recognition to those who happen to be victims of crime,” she said. “It’s important we recognize victims of crime, because we need to be the voice for those who may not have a voice. For those who have gone through hurting and their families have suffered, we need to be there to show our sup-port to them. I think it’s important that this time is set aside for that.” Bullying was one of the main topics of the event’s keynote speakers.

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — Fort White High football opens spring practice on Wednesday. It will be an abbreviated spring season, with the spring game against Columbia High scheduled for May 17. Fort White is hosting the 7 p.m. game. “We will be in shorts on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and scrimmage on Saturday morning,” Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson said. “With the spring game coming so early we will try to get in as much as we can the first week.” Jackson said spring practice already presents problems without the short schedule. “You get in a lot of teaching, but so many distractions become a headache,” Jackson said. “Our kids are doing so many things and there are banquets and field trips. It is not worth it to go an extra two weeks. We’ll compact it into 2 12 weeks and get it done.” To that end, Jackson will give players the Saturday off on May 11 because several have a field trip planned. “We are serious about it, but you won’t win the sea-son in the spring,” Jackson said. “That will come in the summer.” Each new season presents its own problems and the Indians have spots to fill. “It will be a big challenge trying to get some of the young guys to step up,” Jackson said. “It seems like Trey (Phillips) has been here forever and now he’s gone. We lost (Devontae) Levy and (Michael) Mulberry and two outside linebackers. It is nice to be in the position with a quarterback (three-year starter Andrew Baker) and linemen returning, but young guys have got to step up.” Jackson said players have concentrated in the weight room since the fall season ended, and they will face more intense conditioning than is usual in the spring. “Our philosophy is to put weight on them and get them stronger,” Jackson said. “We will step up the conditioning this year with so many unproven guys. We need to have guys in a position to play both ways and we will practice that way. We will turn up the heat a little bit.” Fort White High football begins practice this week.

Harrington has participared in four sports and cur-rently is an invited mem-ber of the Alachua Inferno travel softball team that will play in the USSSA Softball World Series this summer. She also is being pursued by the Gainesville Kings travel basketball team. “I like basketball best, and softball, and sometimes soccer,” Harrington said. Harrington’s softball skills have been noticed for a while, starting when she played T-ball at age 4. Harrington received the award for Best Overall in her age group two years ago at the Columbia Crushers softball camp and, recent-ly, she was one of three 8-year-old players to be on the Gainesville Gold 10U team for the USSSA Spring Stampede. She played on the Lake City Lightning 10U team when she was 6 and 7. Last summer at the Florida State Championships, Harrington won the 8U competition for pitching strikes — most strikes out of 50 throws. Harrington was a member of the A Team from Alachua that was USSSA Fast Pitch Champions in October, Florida State Champions in December and won the Fall Stampede in September. “I like hitting and can sort of do fast pitch,” said Harrington, who also catches, plays first and third base and the out-field. Harrington, who is in the third grade at Gainesville Country Day, has earned the Presidential Academic Fitness Award every year since kindergarten. She was point guard on the Graceworks Sparks team that was tournament champion in the Alachua County Recreation bas-ketball league. Harrington not only deals with the challeng-es of playing with older girls, she mixes it up with the adults in the Sunday golf scrambles at Quail Heights Country Club. She recently sunk a 20-foot putt for her team. “I like putting best,” Harrington said of her golf game. Harrington’s parents are Danny and Leila Harrington and younger brother John is 5. The family lives in High Springs, and Mrs. Harrington is a teacher at Summers Elementary. Mrs. Harrington has taught in Columbia County since 1996 with time out for children. She was Miss CHS in 1992, and danced with the Tigerettes and Falconettes. “I was a dancer, but Callie is different from me,” Mrs. Harrington said. “She want-ed us to let her play sports and I’m glad I did that. She loves anything sports-wise, and just has a natural abil-ity. Whatever it is, she’s got it.” Mr. Harrington has coached Callie on a couple of teams. “She has got all those softball trophies, but bas-ketball is where her sport is,” he said. “She is a real good athlete and has a future in sports if she stays with it.” COURTESY PHOTOCallie Harrington plays in a game earlier this year.

House votes for tighter controls over FHSAABy JIM TURNERTHE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDATALLAHASSEE — The nearly century-old organi-zation that oversees high school athletics in Florida may be entering its final years of eligibility. The House approved a measure (HB 1279), in a bi-partisan 89-26 vote, that gives student-athletes more flexibility as to where they play and requires the Florida High School Athletic Association to more closely follow the wishes of the Legislature or be replaced. The Senate must still take up the measure, either taking up the House bill on the floor or take up a nearly similar proposal (SB 1164) offered by Sen. Kelli Stargel, R-Lakeland. Backers of the changes say the overhaul is needed as the FHSAA has used its authority in an arbitrary manner that has over-reached when investigating student eligibility and claim the measure could help pre-vent some students from dropping out by expanding athletic opportunities. “One hundred years of being an organization doesn’t make you right, it does make you powerful,” said Rep. Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City. Opponents contend the matter is a “playground fight” that has been elevat-ed to the Capitol chambers by Lakeland-area lawmak-ers due to fines imposed against Lakeland High School after students were ruled ineligible to play for infractions ranging from fal-sifying addresses to receiv-ing impermissible benefits that included free rent. The opponents say the legislation will also invite frequent transfers, and force administrators and teachers to continually readjust aca-demic plans for students who jump campus to campus. “This is an awful, awful bill,” said Rep. Kevin Rader, D-Delray Beach. “It’s important we have a good athletic association. To turn it upside down and make it a free agency is something that is disgusting.” The measure places new restrictions on inves-tigations by the FHSAA, expands the ability for stu-dents to transfer schools during the school year, alters the makeup of the board of directors, would give school districts more say over athletic regulations in each county, and sets a 2017 date to sunset the 93-year-old organization. The overhaul gives charter and home school students more opportuni-ties to play for public and private school teams, gives students the right to try out at schools for a sport that is not offered by their own school, and expands rep-resentation on the FHSAA board to charter school, home school and non-pub-lic school members and the Florida Athletic Coaches Association. “We’re not messing with anything that we’re not already messing with cur-rently in law,” Stargel said. “We already set up who the board is. We have the author-ity to set up who the board is. We already have the ability to dictate bylaws. We’re not changing that now.” The bill also requires the Legislature to replace the FHSAA by July 2017. If no replacement is found, the commissioner of education could extend the deadline by four years. coming back this season. Among those that departed from the Tigers are left tackle Laremy Tunsil, quarterback Jayce Barber and the school’s single-sea-son rushing leader Ronald Timmons. Still, the Tigers are loaded with talent. “We have some guys that have been here and we expect to be major contributors,” Allen said. “We expect Roc (Battle), Trey (Marshall) and Terry (Calloway) to be leaders of this group. We expect to get Tyrone (Sands) back on the field and healthy.” But one of the biggest questions among fans this spring will be who is under center for the Tigers? “We’re not going to jump right out and name a start-er,” Allen said. “We’ve got three guys with Nathan Taylor, Austin Williams and Jake Thomas that are going to have to compete. They have to prove it this spring.” A huge benefit that any quarterback for the Tigers will have going for them is the running back behind them. “I expect (Lonnie Underwood) to be the best back that’s ever came through here,” Allen said. “He’s God gifted, but he’s also a leader in that he’s working harder than every-one. He’s got the ability to be special on and off the field. He’s got to capitalize, but if he doesn’t break the rushing record, something major will have had to have happened.” Of course, it’s defense that the head coach will pride himself on this sea-son and the Tigers have a good one anchored by their secondary. “I expect the secondary to be the best in the state,” Allen said. “With Marshall, Battle, (Ben) Kuykendall and (Roger) Cray, we have the ability to be the best that’s ever played here. They’re the best in the state in my opinion. They have an opportunity to be special.” But any good secondary needs a pass rush so that they’re not left on an island for too long. Columbia will see the return of Sands after a season slowed by injuries. “If he’s back to form, he’s one of the top kids in the state,” Allen said. “He was getting looked at by BCS schools as a sophomore. We’re looking to get his release still, but he’s mak-ing positive strides.” The Tigers will practice from 4-6:30 p.m. beginning Wednesday with the first three days of practice in shorts. “The first three days will be basics,” Allen said. “It’ll begin basic, but we’re look-ing to pick things up pretty fast.”




By TONY BRITT T he Lake CityColumbia County Chamber of Commerce and the Lake City Reporter once again will part ner to help bring the Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration to the people of Columbia County. The free event on July 4 will feature one of the largest fireworks shows in North Florida, plus musical entertainment and family activities. The free event is set for the Columbia County Fairgrounds. It will begin at 5 p.m. and end with a large fireworks display at 9:20 p.m. The Chamber is asking local business owners to help sponsor the event, which has grown to see a crowd of more than 25,000 people last year. Were looking for any businesses that are inter ested in helping to spon sor the July 4 celebration, said Abbie Chasteen, Chamber of Commerce marketing coordinator. Weve contacted many of our faithful and sup portive chamber members and businesses who have supported us in the past, and were asking for their assistance again. Chasteen said the Chamber counts on the support of sponsors to make events such as the Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration possible. We need commu nity support to help these events grow, she said. The Lake City Reporter worked with Harvey Campbell and the Downtown Action Corporation 10 years ago to stabilize the fireworks show that was then staged downtown around Lake DeSoto. The Reporter helped to lead the fire work shows comeback and has been the title sponsor for the event for the past decade.

By the way, May is also National Bike Safety Month.Tourist development tax updateThe Columbia County Board of County Commissioners has approved a change in the local bed tax collection rate, increasing the levy from the 3 percent to 4 percent, effective April 1. The approval was in response to a unanimous recommendation from the Tourist Development Council to impose the increase. The additional 1 percent levy is expected to generate approximately $200,000 annually and will be pledged towards debt service for the TDC’s por-tion of a nearly $3 million upgrade to the Southside Recreation Complex. Those improvements have already gotten under way, with new sidewalks, three new concession stand/rest room build-ings and utility connec-tions. In all, 61 of Florida’s 67 counties impose the bed tax at levels ranging from 2 to 6 percent. According to the state Department of Transportation, bed tax collections were $56,690 for February, compared to $57,012 in the same month of 2012. January collections were $53,649, compared to $52,702 the previous year. Smith Travel Reports showed that occupancy in area hotels increased 3.7 percent for March of this year, with Average Daily Rate up 5.7 percent to $76.25, compared to $72.13 last year.Tourism Week awards luncheon May 15The Suwannee River Valley Marketing Group will hold its 2013 Tourism Awards Luncheon on Wednesday, May 15, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Lake City Holiday Inn and Suites. The guest speaker for the event will be Dr. Lori Pennington-Gray, a professor in the College of Tourism and Hospitality at the University of Florida. Awards will be presented in each of nine catego-ries to recognize individu-als and businesses that go above and beyond the call of duty and maintain a high standard of quality services for Suwannee Valley visitors. For addi-tional information on the awards luncheon or to make a reservation, call (386) 758-1312 by May 12. The awards luncheon will replace the regularly scheduled monthly TDC board meeting, which would have also been held on May 15.Tourism marketing activities updateAs usual, the initial four months of the calendar year are extremely busy with consumer trade shows, special events in our area, spring sports and new projects. Listed below is a brief overview of programs conducted by the Suwannee River Valley Marketing Group: Q In conjunction with the Lake City Reporter, produced the third edi-tion of the Suwannee River Valley Vacation Guide, with 60,000 printed for distribution throughout 2013. The 52-page, full-color guide provides a comprehensive overview of the tri-county area. Q Participated in more than 15 trade shows, including RV events in Tampa and Atlanta. Greeted more than 15,000 attendees at the Tampa Bay Tribune Outdoor Show at the Florida State Fairgrounds. Also participated at two consumer shows at The Villages and a dozen military base shows in Florida and Georgia. Estimates are that more than 30,000 potential visi-tors came to our booths for information. Q Produced a new vinyl-wrap promotional display with the exist-ing TDC van, which is used at consumer shows throughout the Southeast. Q Applied for accreditation through the Destination Marketing Association International. Only 135 tourism bureaus worldwide have earned this distinction. The Suwannee River Valley Marketing Group would be one of the world’s smallest tourism agencies to earn this distinction. Q Applied for six new grants from VISIT FLORIDA and the state Department of Economic Opportunity, while com-pleting work on six grants previously awarded, including a new tri-county map brochure, geocach-ing initiative, comprehen-sive biking trail and new rack brochures for some of our state parks. Q Serviced more than 60 rack locations at motels, campgrounds, libraries and our tourism livery businesses every six weeks in the tri-coun-ty area. Q Supported marketing efforts for events such as the Olustee Battle Festival and Wanee. Provided staffing support at those two events and one large youth baseball tournament to conduct polling of attendees to capture important demo-graphic and marketing information. Also deter-mining consumer likes or dislikes for various aspects of the events. Q Worked with the Board of County Commissioners, local youth organizations and the Landscaping and Parks Department to begin implementa-tion of improvements at Southside Recreation Complex and successfully host 10 sporting events through the end of April. Three events are sched-uled for May. 2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 28, 2013 2CBIZ/MOTLEY Q Harvey Campbell is the executive director of the Columbia County Tourist Development Council.

Government spending fell, though, and the impact of the tax increases along with federal budget cuts could slow growth later this year. Economic growth accelerated to a 2.5 percent annual rate in the January-March quarter, the Commerce Department said Friday. That was up from an ane-mic 0.4 percent annual growth rate in the October-December quarter. Consumer spending surged at an annual rate of 3.2 percent — its biggest jump since the end of 2010. Growth was also helped by businesses, which respond-ed to the greater demand by rebuilding their stock-piles. And home construc-tion rose further. Government spending sank at a 4.1 percent annual rate, led by another deep cut in defense spending. US economy grows at 2.5 percent rate FIREWORKS: Show set Continued From Page 1Cfireworks show in North Florida, and we’re pleased to be a partner in help-ing make it grow every year,” said Todd Wilson, publisher of the Lake City Reporter. “If you’ve not made the effort to come see it, the whole event is family oriented. There’s great music, good food, and a great atmo-sphere. We want people to come out and celebrate American freedom. It’s a can’t-miss event.” The crowd of visitors topped 25,000 last year and was made up of locals and others from nearby com-munities. Wilson said both he and the Chamber were very appreciative of the partner-ship of Columbia County Resources to provide the larger venue at the fair-grounds that will allow the event and the crowd to grow.

By AMANDA WILLIAMSON L ooking for the latest trend in jewelry or fashion? Then you will want to go to the fourth annual Diva Day at the Columbia County Fairgrounds Banquet Hall from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday, May 11. Diva Day, organized by the Altrusa Club, will feature 45 vendors selling jewelry, candles, clothes, chocolate, handbags and more. Informational booths will offer health screenings, make-up les sons and styling tips. After the success of last years event, the club extended the morning hours. Now, divas can arrive at 9 a.m. instead of the previous 10 a.m. Its just a girls day out, and its all in one place plenty of bling, plenty of food and plenty of clothes, said Jan Smithey, committee chair for Diva Day. The event drew more than 400 people last year. Girls of all ages teens, daughters, mothers and grandmothers can expect to spend the day shopping and being pampered. The day is spon sored by Altrusa Club, Ronsonet Buick GMC, The Health Center and Campus USA. A local chiropractor and masseuse will be at the event, as well as a hair salon and several make-up companies. A diner will be providing lunch on site for women who want to spend the entire day shopping and enjoying the vendors. Its geared toward women, Smithey said. We just have such a good turnout of women all having a good day. Diva Day helps the small business owners by providing a space for the community to discover new products, Smithey said. The majority of our vendors are local, and many of them are owned by women, she said. The vendors are small, but they do well. They have an opportunity to sell their wares here, and the ladies buy. In the past, Altrusa organized galas for an eve ning of dancing and social izing, but the club decided to do an event that would benefit the local business es that donate to the club. LIFE Sunday, April 28, 2013 Section D H annah Munns, Kimberlynne, LaShel and Genie Norman had season tickets to the Moran Theatre Broadway produc tions this past season in Jacksonville. It was a spe cial day for all of us when we blinged up and treated ourselves to a day of enter tainment. Before each show we had our special lunch at the Omni, where we dined on the diverse culinary styles at Juliettes Bistro. It has been operating in the Omni for 26 years and offers a wide range of Juliettes worth the trip to Jville Story ideas?

menu choices using many locally grown products. This past year, we attended four shows, so we had four opportunities to try the foods. You’ll find an upscale dcor with a cir-cular bar, tropical flower prints on the walls, large windows, banquettes plus tables, interesting lighting and a lobby filled with lush plants. We always share an appetizer, and our favor-ite is the Margherita flatbread ($13), which is served with warm, crunchy flatbread covered in fresh chopped toma-toes, mozzarella and basil. It’s about 12 by 12 inches in size, so it easily serves four. We have also tried the shrimp nachos ($13), and they were equally good. The chips are covered with black beans, cheeses, salsa, sour cream, guaca-mole, jalapenos (optional) and there about 16 grilled shrimp. Delicious, and it could easily be a satisfying entree. We have had the fried green tomatoes ($10) numerous times, served piping hot with a blue cheese dressing. Other choices include Mayport blue crab cake, barbecue pork shank and barbecue chicken flatbread. There are numerous entrees to choose from. We’ve tried the steak frites ($20), which is a grilled hangar steak with bar-naise sauce and crispy homemade fries. The shrimp and grits comes in a huge bowl with a large serving of grits covered with a delicious sauce made from Vidalia onions, sweet peppers, andouille sausage with six grilled jumbo shrimp on top. The shrimp were worth bragging about. There are four fresh fish choices, all cooked either grilled, pan-fried or blackened with a topping choice of shrimp salsa or lump crab cream sauce ($24). There are several salad choices, and Genie’s favorite is the walnut gorgonzola ($10), with baby greens, gorgonzola, walnuts, tomato, croutons with a balsamic vinaigrette. By far the favorite choice is the lobster maca-roni and cheese. Served in a casserole, it is made with pasta, Monterey jack, smoked gouda and ched-dar cheeses, bacon and large pieces of lobster ($18). It is creamy, hot, crusty on top and a real treat. Dessert choices are all good; we’ve tried most of them. Genie’s favorite was the bread pudding ($6), LaShel’s favorite was the Florida orange crme brulee ($6), and the girls loved the cheesecake ($6) and the chocolate ganache cake ($6). Usually, finding room for dessert is just impossible, as the lunch is generous, but splitting one is not out of the question. When we visited Juliette’s on St. Patrick’s Day, LaShel and Genie tried the Irish coffee and the Bailey’s coffee. So, bar service is available and there is an extensive wine list. We’ve already ordered our tickets for next sea-son’s Broadway shows, so we have more trips to Juliette’s in store for us. I highly recommend that you treat yourself to a bling day in Jacksonville and take in a show and lunch or dinner at Juliette’s. Oops, forgot to mention our favorite waitress is Montressa. She makes everything just perfect. Very attentive, thoughtful and friendly. She gets a 10. The Omni is located at 245 Water St. near the Landing.

Before I made this breakfast stop, Canada had lured me over to visit her wonderful western canyons and botanical gardens. Soon I’ll be touring an English tea garden. The EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival in Orlando is a must-see for every gardener and plant enthusiast. This 300 acre theme park is all about dazzling plants and garden design. The gardens guide visi-tors through charming village streets in countries around the world. Without ever leaving the park, visitors experience exotic destinations with wonderful sights, sounds, and local food. A blend of American and inter-national tourists makes this the fifth most visited theme park anywhere, and this park and flower festival is right in our own back yard. The University of Florida Master Gardeners staff an ‘Ask the Expert’ booth at the entrance to the festival head-quarters from March into May. County Extension Offices may send their own Master Gardeners to staff the booth and take part in the Festival. Your Master Gardeners represented Columbia County on April 22 and will be volunteering again in May. EPCOT is a wonderful place to soak in the beauty of blooms and foliage, but it’s also a great place to learn. Gardeners will return home from a visit with more new ideas than they can ever use. As usual, the creativity of Disney is evident everywhere. Every path taken in the park is met with beautifully manicured gardens. Theme gardens, such as the raised vegetable and herb beds, or the butterfly and hummingbird gardens teach through demonstration and signage. In the Audubon garden, birds happily feast on abundant insects and seeds made available through the creative teaming of native plants and colorful annual flowers. UF/IFAS Master Gardeners in Columbia County provide many services for residents in the county. The free soil pH testing has become very popular with homeowners and small farmers. These dedicated volunteers pro-vide gardening help at the exten-sion office, in our local schools, at fairs and community events, and over the phone. They also teach workshops with the aid of teaching gardens. These activi-ties are all funded by the pro-ceeds from the annual Master Gardener Plant Sale. Please support the volunteers and show your appreciation for the work they do in Columbia County. Attend the 10th Annual Master Gardener Plant Sale on Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at the Extension office located on the fairgrounds. Find the best Quality Plants at unbelievable Low Prices. Find healthy natives plants, herbs, annuals, peren-nials, ornamentals — lovingly grown by the volunteers for you. GARDEN TALK Nichelle EPCOT’s flower festival a must-see for gardeners Q D. Nichelle Demorest is a horticulture agent with the Columbia County Extension of the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. By AMY LORENTZENAssociated PressNick Escalante enjoys grilling his family’s meals a couple of times a week year-round, but doesn’t like cleaning the greasy mess that comes with it. So he uses a professional grill cleaner. “I really am not a fan of cooking food for my family on a grill that has leftover food from previous uses all over it,” says Escalante, 47, of Mesa, Ariz. “They come and do the dirty work for us.” Proper grill maintenance can make cooking safer and extend the life of your barbecue. Celia Kuperszmid Lehrman, deputy home edi-tor for Consumer Reports, says homeowners can do the job on their own. “There is not some huge skill set here that the aver-age person can’t handle,” she says. Many quality grills sell for between $200 and $300. Doing your best to clean the appliance and then replacing it may be more cost-effective than paying for professional upkeep, she says. Whether you do it yourself or hire an expert, there is some regular upkeep required for your barbe-cue. That includes scraping grates before and after you cook, washing flavorizer bars occasionally, and emp-tying grease traps. Gas grillers should regularly check their pro-pane tank and replace if it has corrosion or dents, and inspect and replace cracked or brittle hoses, Kuperszmid Lehrman advises. Most grill parts, cleansers and tools can be purchased inexpensively at home stores. Check the manual to ensure you don’t use any-thing that could void your barbecue’s warranty. Jeffrey Krentzman, founder and owner of The BBQ Cleaner in Hackensack, N.J., recom-mends a professional grill cleaning at the start and end of barbecuing season, or more if you grill yearround. Professional grill cleaners take the barbecue apart; steam, spray or soak the pieces; and use special tools to scrub in spots the average homeowner may not easily reach. Many use food-safe and environ-mentally friendly products designed for grills. Professional cleaners also advertise their ser-vices as making barbecues healthier by removing potentially cancer-caus-ing substances from the grill. Those substances are produced when foods are cooked at high heat, and especially when meats are charred. The Department of Agriculture advises pre-venting flares when barbecuing for added food safety. You can do that by trimming fat, precooking to release fatty juices and keeping the barbecue free of greasy buildup. Besides not handling spilled or splattered grease from your barbecue and nearby flooring, Krentzman says one of the biggest bonuses when hiring a pro-fessional is that you don’t have to mess with propane. “We are dealing with the gas, so there’s not that risk,” he says. That was one of the selling points for Escalante, who says he tried cleaning and fixing a problem with the grill himself before call-ing a professional. “I thought I could save money and do it myself, but there was a little bit more to it than I expected,” he says. “I didn’t want it to blow up on me.” Escalante adds that he likes the barbecue he has and wants to keep it as long as possible. “I’m used to it,” he says. “I know how it works, and it works well.”ASSOCIATED PRESSKevin Chavez, an authorized technician of The BBQ Cleane r, professionally cleans a gas grill for a client in Me sa, Ariz.

It only takes a few shallow-rooted plants to provide window dressing for even the mo st rustic buildings. Window boxes can be used to grow more than flowersBy DEAN FOSDICKAssociated PressSometimes the best view isn’t what you see through a window but what catches your eye underneath it. Window boxes deliver color, edibles and fra-grance. They’re practical, too, as raised-bed gardens that elevate their contents to within easy reach. “Window boxes are convenient containers,” said David Trinklein, a horti-culturist with University of Missouri Extension. “Plant them with herbs, for example, and you won’t have to go outside to bring in the harvest.” If you have room for a window box, you have room for a garden. Window boxes are ideal for small, shallow-rooted plants like radishes, lettuce, mari-golds, impatiens, pansies, begonias, parsley, basil, sage and thyme. “Mix and match flowers with vegetables,” said Rhonda Ferree, an extension educator with the University of Illinois. “They need the same soil types and have the same water preferences. Plant flowers toward the front for curb appeal; position vegetables toward the back for easier access.” The location of the window box usually dic-tates what you can grow, Trinklein said. “Window boxes that get a blistering afternoon sun require one thing. Window boxes in shade require another.” Fern Richardson, author of “Small Space Container Gardens” (Timber Press, 2012) describes herself as “a big believer in creative window boxing.” “There’s nothing stopping window box gar-deners from adding gar-den ornaments to their boxes,” Richardson said. “Small gazing balls tucked between the plants can add a little sparkle to a shady area. Gardeners can even use short shepherd’s hooks to plant a humming-bird feeder in a window box.” Window boxes work especially well: — As theme gardens. Find flowers that display your school colors, patriot-ic mixtures that show the flag or plants that comple-ment the paint on your house. — At delivering fragrances. Fill window boxes outside bedrooms with evening primrose, four o’clocks (Mirabilis) and moonflowers for per-fume-like scents on still summer nights. — For four-season gardening. Grow daffodils, grape hyacinth and tulips in spring; ornamental edi-bles like peppers, straw-berries and chives in sum-mer; flowering kale and pansies for color through fall and winter. — To showcase houseplants. Display your favor-ite potted plants in empty window boxes during the summer growing season. That will free up shelf space indoors while enhancing things outdoors.

DEAR ABBY: As a father of two teenage daughters, I have a question about couples living together. Do relationships that start this way have a higher failure rate than those that don’t? What should be consid-ered when a young girl has the “living together” question presented to her by a young man? And most important, what can I as a father do to help my daughters make an intelligent deci-sion about this, other than just “load my shotgun” (LOL)? As always, thank you for broadening my wisdom horizon and giving me examples of solid advice from which both my and my family’s life have been enriched. -LONGTIME FAN IN OHIO DEAR LONGTIME FAN: It depends upon whether the couple living together are engaged to be married and their level of education. From what I’ve read, the higher the level of educa-tion, the more stable the couple will be. If the ques-tion is presented to your daughters, ideally you will have gotten to know the young man, and the rela-tionship will have devel-oped beyond the casual stage. However, I cannot stress strongly enough the importance of your girls being independent, self-supporting and completing their education before they decide to do this. One of the most common reasons women remain in unhappy marriages/relationships is the fear they can’t survive on their own. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are hoping you could shed some light on the practice of throwing rice at a wedding. We were not only wondering when and how the practice started, but also do people still throw rice today at wed-dings? We had heard that guests had stopped doing so to help protect wildlife (especially birds). Have you found this to be true? If so, what do we throw now? -EMPTY-HANDED IN WISCONSIN DEAR EMPTYHANDED: Rice-throwing is an ancient tradition that may date back to ancient Rome and Egypt or even earlier. It was a ritual having to do with fertil-ity -many grains of rice equating to having many children. In some coun-tries, the couple is pelted with dates, raisins or even eggs, according to Ask Yahoo. According to Emily Post: “All the traditional materi-als have their drawbacks: Rice can be dangerous for birds if ingested; bird-seed can sprout weeds in unwanted places; rose petals are notoriously slip-pery; and even bubbles can stain a gown. Instead, you might distribute col-ored flags or streamers for guests to wave. ... It beats assigning someone the nearly impossible task of trying to recover grains and seeds from grass and flower beds.” It’s Abby again: This is why I recommend that instead of tossing any-thing, you shower the happy couple with good wishes. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Share your thoughts. Travel and communication should be high on your list. A day trip with someone you share interests with will bring you closer together. Don’t let professional pres-sures stand in your way. Have some fun and ease your stress. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Scout for new ventures to increase your assets. A meddler will not approve of an unusual change you want to make. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Network functions will open up new possibilities. Your lifestyle will improve through the people you meet and the partnerships you form. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Do something out of the ordinary. A cre-ative boost will help you enhance your life and your relationships. Participating in a good cause or lending a helping hand will lead to good fortune. Love and romance are on the rise. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Ups and downs can be expected. Refuse to let someone’s bad mood or stubbornness ruin your plans. A change of pace or location will do wonders for you mentally, physically and emotionally. An adven-ture will lead you in a new direction. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Pursue your dreams. The thrill of letting go and having some fun will lead to interesting people and new possibilities. Love and romance are in the stars, but the realization of the lifestyle you want may not suit your current situation. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Put your money in a safe place. Don’t lend, borrow or fall victim to a sob story. Charity begins at home, and investing in your future or environ-ment is your best bet. Self-improvement projects will lead to a better you. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Partnerships will be the focus, especially if you want to follow a creative path. It’s important that you have the support of the people you care about most in order to move for-ward successfully. Share your ideas and plans and proceed. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Think and take action. Don’t let an emo-tional situation cloud your vision or cause you to miss out on something you want to pursue. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Alter your domes-tic situation to suit your needs. Romance and enter-taining will enable you to touch base with people you want to share your future with and allow you to find out who is supportive and who is not. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Expect to face opposition. Don’t let what others think discourage you. Do what’s best for you and you’ll find your niche. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t let emotions sti-fle your plans or keep you from making the changes. Approaching a contract, legal settlement or medical issue in a unique way will give you a better chance to reach your set goal.
