By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comF or more than Florida Gateway College students, Pomp and Circumstance was more than the title to the ubiquitous gradu-ation song as they walked into Howard Conference Center on Friday. It was a musical reminder that they had met their graduation requirements, and it generated excitement among the students, who realized their college diplomas were less than 100 yards away. The commencement exercise centered around 700 graduates. About 180 graduates walked across the stage to get their diplo-mas in the morning ceremony and about 100 did the same in the afternoon ceremo-ny. Of the 100 who received their diplomas in the afternoon, eight received their bach-elor of science degrees in nursing the first bachelor degrees awarded by FGC. Dr. Chuck Hall, college president, spoke about the school having its first bachelor of science graduates. Its an exciting step in the growth and history of Florida Gateway College, he said. Anytime you do a first, its always memorable, but to have eight students graduate and earn their bachelors degrees, they are ready to move forward into the jobs theyre looking at as a bachelor degree graduate. Its exciting we can provide that opportunity, and were looking at expanding the whole nursing program so we see more bachelor people coming in that area.

Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City, awaits the signature of Gov. Rick Scott on five of the seven bills she introduced during the 2013 legislative ses-sion, which ended Friday. One of her bills already was signed into law. Porters biggest accomplishment was arguably House Bill 7, which could protect North Floridas water from being sucked into other areas of the state by over-pumping of ground-water in other water manage-ment districts. The only bill Porter sponsored that did not pass would have given relief to victims of Tropical Storm Debbie by calling for partial reimbursement of property taxes paid on homes made unin-habitable by the storm. HB 43, which also would have extended the same relief to property own-ers who suffered damage during Hurricane Isaac, died after first reading. Porter said the legislative session was one of the most suc-cessful in years, and that HB 7 will help protect North Floridas water supply. I am most pleased with the passage of the water manage-ment district bill that I have worked and fought hard for the past three years, she said in an email. This has been a great session for the people of North Florida and our great state. If signed into law, HB 7 will require the states water man-agement districts to recognize the science of other water man-agement districts and take into Local lawmaker sees much success with bills she sponsored.ASSOCIATED PRESSRep.

TALLAHASSEE Flush with cash for the first time in seven years, state lawmakers ended their session Friday by passing a $74.5 billion budget that includes a big boost for schools. Only 11 legislators all of them Democrats in the House voted against the spending plan that now heads to Gov. Rick Scott. Buoyed by a rise in tax collections, the Republican-controlled Legislature was able to craft a spending plan that included pay raises for state workers, more money for health care programs and Everglades restoration. Our budget is not about spreadsheets and numbers, its about values and priorities, said Sen. Joe Negron, R-Stuart and Senate budget chief. Despite a more than 6 percent increase in spend ing, House Speaker Will Weatherford insisted the final budget was fis cally conservative. But he and other legislators stressed that the budget includes a more than $1 billion increase for public schools. A big portion of that increase is being given to school districts to increase teacher salaries. That was a top priority of Scott, even though the final measure was not the across-theboard boost that the gover nor initially recommended. The budget does include federal funding tied to the Affordable Care Act that increases payments to primary care doctors who treat Medicaid patients. But House Republicans remained steadfast all the way to the end in their opposition to accept feder al aid to expand the states health care safety net. Other highlights of the budget include a 3 percent tuition hike for college and university students. Scott has remained steadfastly opposed to tuition hikes and could veto the hikes. Legislators also agreed to the first across-theboard pay raise to state workers in seven years. Texting ban bill passes TALLAHASSEE Florida lawmakers on Thursday passed a state wide ban on texting while driving. The bill now heads to Gov. Rick Scotts desk. If he signs it into law, Florida will become the 40th state to enact a texting-whiledriving bans for all drivers. Scott hasnt publicly dis closed whether he will, but bill sponsor Sen. Nancy Detert said she thinks the governor will sign the measure. Early on, he talked about his wife getting hit by a person who was tex ting while driving, and Im sure hes supportive, the Naples Republican said. The approved ban makes texting while driv ing a secondary offense. That means police have to first stop drivers for an offense like an illegal turn. A first violation is a $30 fine plus court costs. A second or subsequent violation within five years adds three points to the drivers license and is a $60 fine. Scott signs death warrant for man TALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott has signed a death warrant for a man convicted in the death of a prison guard. The governors office announced Friday that 58-year-old William Van Poyck is scheduled to die by lethal injection at Florida State Prison near Raiford at 6 p.m., June 12. In June 1987, Van Poyck and co-defendant Frank Valdes ambushed two guards who were taking inmate James OBrien in a prison van to a doctors office in West Palm Beach. Corrections officer Fred Griffis died after being shot three times. Van Poyck and Valdes were unable to free OBrien and were arrested a short time later when Valdes lost con trol of the Cadillac he was driving and struck a tree. Van Poyck has taken responsibility for the slay ing but denied he was the triggerman. Officials: Teen bitten by shark MELBOURNE BEACH Officials say a teenager was bitten by a shark in Melbourne Beach. Brevard County fire rescue authorities say the teen was bitten in the ankle while in the water Saturday before noon. WKMG Local 6 in Orlando reports the teens injuries are not life threat ening. He was taken to Holmes Regional Medical Center for treatment. Pepper spray sprayed at school BRANDON Thirtysix students and a school employee were hospital ized after a student dis charged pepper spray at a Tampa Bay area middle school. The Tampa Bay Time reports the incident hap pened Friday afternoon at McLane Middle School in Brandon.a Hillsborough County school district spokes man Stephan Hegarty said 93 students and three teachers were affected in all. They experienced coughing, watery eyes and scratchy throats. About three dozen people were hospitalized, though the injuries appeared to be minor. All were treated and released. The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office has charged a 12-year-old girl with disruption of a school function. She was taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center. Man gets life for murder OCALA A man has been sentenced to life in prison plus another 30 years for a fatal home inva sion in north Florida. A Marion County judge sentenced 26-year-old Jolgar Desir on Friday. He was convicted Sunday of murder, attempted murder, home invasion robbery with a firearm and kidnap ping with a firearm. Authorities say 43year-old Robert Jamerson was shot and killed at his Orange Lake home in August 2009. His younger brother, Terrence, also was shot but survived wounds to his shoulder and back. ATLANTA R eese Witherspoon pleaded no contest to a disorderly conduct charge and paid a $100 fine after berating a state trooper in Atlanta while her husband was given a sobriety test, an embarrass ing exchange caught on a dashboard camera after the usually squeakyclean Hollywood star had what she called one too many glasses of wine. The video, which was first obtained by TMZ and publicly released by authorities Friday, shows Witherspoon asking the Georgia state trooper after she was placed in custody, Do you know my name? and then adding, Youre about to find out who I am. Witherspoons lively exchange with the trooper had already been outlined in a police report, but the video offered a rare glimpse at the actress unfiltered. Witherspoon, an Oscar-winning actress who has built a wholesome professional image, apologized shortly after her arrest, saying she was deeply embar rassed. Municipal Court of Atlanta Deputy Solicitor Ronda Graham said in a statement that Witherspoon entered the plea and paid the fine, resolving the case. Lindsay Lohan enters Betty Ford Center LOS ANGELES Lindsay Lohan has checked into a rehab and will not face a probation violation for leaving another treatment facility after a few minutes, a prosecutor said Friday. Santa Monica Chief Deputy City Attorney Terry White said he has received confirma tion that Lohan has checked in to a rehab facility and he is satisfied with her location. He declined to say where Lohan is receiving treatment, but a source close to the actress who was not authorized to speak publicly said she has checked in to the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif. Lohan is required to spend 90 days in rehab as part of a plea deal in a misdemeanor case filed after a June car accident. Her sentence also called for her to receive 18 months of psychotherapy to avoid a return to jail. She pleaded no contest in March to lying to police and reckless driv ing. Lohan spent time at Betty Ford before. She served another manda tory rehab sentence at the treatment center, although her stay there was not without drama. Lohan, 26, got into an altercation with a rehab worker and within weeks of her release was charged with taking a necklace from a Los Angeles jewelry store without permission. Russ Patrick, a spokesman for Betty Ford, said he could not con firm Lohan had returned to the facility, which is a licensed treatment hospital founded in 1982 and has treated numerous celebrities. Lohan remains on probation in the theft case. PepsiCo cuts ties with Lil Wayne over lyrics NEW YORK PepsiCo is bowing to public pressure for the second time in a week and cutting ties with Lil Wayne over the rappers crude lyrical reference to civil rights martyr Emmett Till. Lil Wayne, one of the biggest stars in pop music, had a deal to promote the companys Mountain Dew soda. Earlier this week, PepsiCo also pulled an online ad for the neon-col ored soda that was criticized for por traying racial stereotypes and mak ing light of violence toward women. That ad was developed by rapper Tyler, the Creator. On Friday, PepsiCo said in a state ment that Waynes offensive refer ence to a revered civil rights icon does not reflect the values of our brand. It declined to provide any further comment. PEOPLE IN THE NEWS Celebrity Birthdays Actress Pat Carroll is 86. Former AFL-CIO president John J. Sweeney is 79. Saxophonist Ace Cannon is 79.

account the minimum flow levels of other districts riv-ers, streams and springs. Porter was also the Houses lead sponsor of the education bill that restruc-tured requirements to graduate from high school. The governor has signed that bill into law. Porter co-sponsored House Bill 1129, which would mandate that infants born alive during an attempted abortion be pro-vided medical care. Porter also introduced House Bill 1031. It establishes a statewide process for the adoption of instruc-tional materials for K-12 education. Porter said she supported the $74 billion budget that passed Friday. In an email, she called the bud-get a fiscally responsible, balanced budget that funds key priorities without rais-ing taxes. Porters legislative office highlighted a number of issues that Porter fought for, including an additional $1.5 billion of funding for K-12 education. Porter was the vice chair of the House Education Committee. Porters office said the budget strikes the right balance of funding key pri-orities, keeping taxes low while ensuring a fiscally responsible $2.8 billion in reserves. Porters office also touted the fact the budget does include provisions to give teachers raises promised by Gov. Scott, however, the budget ties raises to the new merit pay system. A teacher rated as effective qualifies for a $2,500, and a teacher rated highly effec-tive will be eligible for a $3,500 raise. Other bills Porter sponsored that await the gover-nors signature are HB 77, 57 and 667. House Bill 77 clarified laws for governing land-lord/tenant laws by group-ing them all together, Porter said. It also provides that landlords the ability to collect partial payment of rent, but still reserve the right to evict a tenant. House Bill 57 gives the Department of Business and Professional Regulation the ability to transfer cash to the Florida Home Owners Construction Recovery Fund. House Bill 667 adjusts Florida statutes so they comply with new federal guidelines governing real estate appraisers.

And why wouldnt she? Howard, a Fort White High School senior, received her associates diploma as a dual enroll-ment student and was one of the keynote speakers for the Florida Gateway College commencement Friday. It was awesome to speak at the commencement, she said. I was up against a lot of other (potential) speak-ers who had the chance, and I had to go through an interview process and they choose me to speak, and it meant a lot. Howard said she plans to get a job in nursing but was thankful she could fur-ther her education as a dual enrollment student. It means so much to get a college diploma before I get my high school diplo-ma, she said. This is one of the biggest accomplish-ments that a lot of us can achieve before graduating high school. She said having her associates degree will help her to get a job easier and fast-er than some of her high school pals. Sixty-seven dual-enrollment students graduated from FGC Friday and received their associates diplomas before they received their high school diplomas. Of the 67, 27 were from Columbia County nine are from Columbia High School, four are from Fort White High School, 12 are home education students and two are Blake School students. Its a great step, said Dr. Chuck Hall, FGC presi-dent. For the students and their parents its a signifi-cant economic factor and significant with the stu-dents moving forward in their careers. Its an excit-ing time a joint produc-tion of high schools and college working together to help students and families get their education with as low of a fee as possible and as quickly as possible. Dual enrollment is where high school students are enrolled in college cours-es and those courses help meet their high school graduation requirements. Linda Williams, FGCs coordinator of dual enroll-ment, said there are about 950 students in the FGC program from Baker, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Suwannee and Union coun-ties. Students who meet all course requirements can receive either an associate of arts or associate of sci-ence diploma or a certifi-cate. These students are students that are completing two full years of college work, Williams said. Most of them are getting their feet wet and taking some of the general education courses to get a feel for college. commemorate the moment by posing for photos with her family. Douglas, a Jacksonville resident who is also a mother, was surrounded by her family as she smiled with her diploma. It means everything to me for my family to see me graduate, she said. They are my support, and I love them. Douglas received an associates of arts diploma in liberal arts and is hoping to graduate next year from St. Leo University with a bachelors degree in health care administra-tion. Im excited about graduating, said Eric Gleeman, of Wellborn, as he walked to his vehicle after the morning ceremony. Im looking forward to the future, and I couldnt have asked for a better faculty here. The staff was wonderful. They helped me through a lot of hard times. Gleeman said hes interested in continuing his education and hope-fully get a bachelors degree in nurs-ing. Joanna McLaughlin, 25, of Lake City, was one of eight students to get a nursing degree during the afternoon ceremony. She was also a keynote speaker. Im honored and humbled to be a part of the inaugural class of bach-elor of science nursing, she said. I want to thank Dr. Mary Hill, who without her the program wouldnt be possible at this college. Nursing is one of the more popular programs at FGC. McLaughlin graduated from the schools regis-tered nursing program in 2011 and decided to enroll in the new bach-elor program. They just have such a quality program here. Its top notch, she said. Everyone in the community recog-nizes us as coming from FGC. They want us when they hire us. Hall said graduation is always exciting. Today was an interesting day a rainy day, the first rainy day we can remember for graduations, which is the reason we dont have them outside, he said. Yet, the inside was bright and sunny with people smiling and laughing and having a good time. The rain didnt diminish the activities. We got a little wet, but it didnt diminish anything.JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterFlorida Gateway College graduate August Carolyn Megarge l, 16, and Austin Craven, 18, brave the afternoon showers a fter the FGC commencement ceremony on Friday.

T he few surviving written accounts by Jamestown colonists refer to the winter of 1609-1610 as the starving time. Out of about 300 people in the southeast Virginia fort, only 60 sur-vived until spring. They did so by eating horses, dogs, squirrels and, on occasion, each other. The colonists couldnt journey too far from their fort because they were under siege by the Powhatan Indians, who had grown weary of their presence and their incessant demands for food. Cannibalism was apparently infrequent, usually involving the exhumed corpses of the newly dead. A husband did kill his wife and salted her flesh to preserve it, a crime for which he was executed. And there were a number of unex-plained disappearances of settlers who had gone into the woods to forage. Until now, physical evidence of cannibalism has been lacking. But last August, researchers turned up the skull, lower jaw and leg bone of a girl of about 14 while exca-vating a debris-filled cellar at the Jamestown Rediscovery archaeo-logical project. The skull, a lower leg bone and the jaw bear the marks of a cleaver or ax. The remains show that the colonists were hardly practiced can-nibals. Evidently, it took four blows to split the skull so the brains, tongue and flesh could be extracted. Lacking any clue to her identity, physical anthropologists at the Smithsonian Institution dubbed the young lady Jane. A reconstruc-tion of her features shows she was rather an attractive woman before starvation and disease got her. In June 1609, a resupply fleet set out from England, but one ship sank in a hurricane, the flagship was wrecked in Bermuda and the other six brought 300 new arrivals that the colonists were ill-equipped to feed. The summer corn crop yielded only enough to feed 50 people for a year. The colonists leader, John Smith, had been badly wounded and returned to England with the supply ships. So thats how the colonists faced their third winter in the New World -leaderless, foodless and surrounded by hostile Indians. It is a testament of some kind -to the foolhardy courage, tenacity, desperation or simple cluelessness of those early colonists -that they kept on coming despite the misery of those who had gone before. Well need such people -minus the cannibalism -when we try to colonize Mars.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman N o one could have anticipated that after Floridas embarrassing November elec-tion that Tallahassees mea culpa to vot-ers would take the entire nine weeks of the legislative session to arrive. But the elections reform bill passed by the Legislature shortly before it adjourned Friday reverses much of the 2011 voter suppression law. The measure is far from per-fect it remains too stingy with early voting hours, for example but it is better than the status quo and should be signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott. Reforming elections, campaign finance and ethics law were three priorities House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz named in March to restore Floridians faith in government. Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, insisted elections reform be the first bill passed by the House. But like the campaign finance and ethics reforms the governor signed into law this week, lofty ambitions were tamed by political reality. Ethics reform, for example, made inroads by finally giving the state ethics commission the ability to initiate investigations. But it came at a heavy cost, including extraordinary deference to lawmakers caught with errors or omissions on their financial disclosure forms. The campaign finance law improved transparency for several fundraising groups but not for political parties, all but ensuring those slush funds will see even more soft money. Nonetheless, there was progress. The election bill, HB 7013, expands the sites available for early voting and limits, with a caveat, constitutional amendments written by the Legislature to just 75 words. Voters who forget to sign the back of their absentee ballot enve-lopes could fix the problem until the day before the election. And fewer voters on Election Day would be handed provisional ballots, which are far less likely to be counted. Counties that use electronic databases at the polls can allow voters who have moved within the same county to change their address that day. But law-makers could have disenfranchised even fewer voters by returning to the law as it stood before 2011, which allowed any registered Florida voter to change his or her address on Election Day. The bill also would improve the security of absentee ballots a problem long ignored.... Voters seeking to have an absentee ballot mailed to an address other than their home will have to submit a signed request. (That requirement is waived for overseas ballots and military personnel.) And it would prohibit paid political operatives from collecting more than two absentee bal-lots from non-family members. Most disappointingly, Republican lawmakers hid behind concerns about cost and failed to fully restore Floridas 14 days of early voting. Under the bill, county election supervisors will only have to provide eight days of early voting but have the discretion to expand that up to 14 days, including the Sunday before an elec-tion. In a last-minute change, the House also insisted the entire bill not take effect until Jan. 1, 2014. That means many of these new protections wont apply to this falls municipal elections, including the mayoral and city council races in St. Petersburg. Two steps forward, one step back. Thats the dance in Tallahassee. But this elections reform is better than the current situation and should become law. 2 steps forward, 1 back on elections Jamestown settlers included cannibals ANOTHER VIEW LETTERS POLICY Letters to the Editor should be typed or neatly written and double spaced.

Those citizens included Renee and Nevin Markham, Betty Ann and Roland Gillen, Sheila and Scotty Gillen, Deloris Schmid and Mary Plymale of Monticello, and Doyle and Rose Cason. They worked hundreds and hundreds of hours and produced a fas-cinating and valuable book looking into Lulus past, as told by older citizens. That book is a masterpiece, including names, dates, community and school records, photographs, and much more from Lulus past. All those books were snapped up almost immediately and no other copies were printed. If you have one, hold on to it. There wont be any more. Now there is good news! Now, 22 years later, the Lulu Community members have decided its time to begin a second edition of Lulu History. This is a tremendous undertaking and the committee will need every-ones help to make this new book possible. So, starting right now, begin to gather information, pic-tures, anything about Lulu history, and mail it to Rene Markham, 169 SE Gillen Terrace, Lulu, FL 32061. The Committee asks that you:Do not send originals. They may get lost. Send copies. Send any details regarding photographs, including dates, names of those pictured, any special occa-sion that prompted the photos, like birthdays or anniversaries. Print or write as legibly as possibly. Include your name and phone number in case the committee has questions.

The attraction had real star power in that Ross Allen was the main force behind the attraction. He had already gained international fame from years of milking rattlesnakes and wrestling alligators at Silver Springs. Then one day Ross reported that there had been an overnight assault at his attraction and explained. He had brought in a large, healthy, heavyweight 12-foot alligator to be the centerpiece of his attraction. But apparently another large alligator living in a nearby swamp had entered the attraction at night, seen the big gator, thought it had great sex appeal, and instantly fallen in love. Apparently the courtship had failed and the frustrated swamp gator lost its temper and had liter-ally torn Rosss gator apart. Ross said not to worry. His gator was made of 100% plastic and could be replaced.REUNION REMINDERJulia Geohagen Osborn (CHS 1950) announces that the next reunion of the CHS 1949-53 classes will be held on Saturday, May 11, at 11:30 at the Mason City Community Center.

The mans psychiatrist told him he could cure him and to return in two weeks to start treatment. The man returned in two weeks and told the psychiatrist his bar-tender had solved the problem. The disbelieving psychiatrist scoffed and asked how the bartend-er had done this. The man replied, He told me just to cut the legs off my bed. I did and I aint been scared since!

By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City teenager ran away about a month ago, and has not returned home. The Columbia County Sheriffs Office is asking if anyone sees her to contact them. Alana K. Johnston left home with a bag of cloths and some personal items on April 7. Her parents have not seen her since. The sheriffs office believes shes staying with friends in either Live Oak or Lake City. She is 16, and has medium-length, brown hair that she had died black before she ran away. She likes to wear loose sweat-shirts. Her eye color is hazel. She is thin and is about 5 feet, 6 inches tall. She was attending Suwannee High School, but her home is in Lake City. Anyone with information on Johnsons whereabouts is asked to call the sheriffs office detective division at 758-1095. redevelopment adminis-trator, said the events for Fam Fest were canceled because of safety con-cerns. A classic car show connected with Fam Fest also was canceled but will be rescheduled. The new date for the car show has not been set, Kite said in an email. Mario Coppock, director of the county recre-ation department, said the May Day event to recog-nize the hard work of city and county employees was rescheduled because of the weather. It has been rescheduled for June 1, but the charity basket-ball game was played as planned. Over the past 12 months, Columbia County has received 29 percent more rain than the his-torical average, but in the month of March, the county did not meet his-toric levels, according to the Suwannee River Water Management district. The district said 3.87 inches of rain fell on Columbia County in March, which is 84 percent of the average historic total of 4.62. Shayne Morgan, county emergency management director, said between two to three inches of rain fell Friday on the area, and there were no reports of localized flooding or dam-age to property. By CHRISTOPHER SHUMAKERSpecial to the ReporterPam Cooley said she is tired of having no place to go after work to relax and unwind except for a local restaurant. Its not all about food all of the time, Cooley said. After a stressful day at work, I feel the city lacks a place where people can sit back and relax, order a drink and listen to some music. I would even be open to frequenting a place that offered things like poetry readings and com-edy nights. Cooley said she finally decided to find a way to bring the community together while offering local artists an opportunity to showcase their talents each month. She started First Friday, which kicked off this past Friday at The Caf Downtown, 281 N. Marion Ave., as one way to give area residents a place to express themselves. I found this place after work one day, and I thought the environment, the atmo-sphere, was inclusive of a vision that I had, Cooley said. We are trying to cre-ate a platform for those who have talent and never have been able to display it. Cooley said The Caf Downtown was the per-fect venue to kick off First Friday. She hopes local artists are able to come out the first Friday of each month, showcase their tal-ent and enjoy meeting new people. Both she and the restaurants owner, Larry Ostrander, feel it is impor-tant for Lake City to have an outlet where locals can share interests with neigh-bors. Fridays event featured two local singers, as well as a keyboardist. The turnout was larger than anticipated, Cooley said, and she hopes with each month her idea will keep growing. Not only does she want to bring the community together to experience something new, she also is using it as an opportunity to give back. Part of the proceeds from last Fridays event goes to a local sum-mer camp for children. First Friday will not only promote business, she said, but its going to promote a realization to the community that Hey, I dont have to go straight home after work. Theres a place I can stop by and chat with friends, a place I can unwind. Linda Ivery attended Cooleys kick-off First Friday event and was happy with the turnout. Cooleys longtime friend said people who did not take in the nights entertainment need to make a point to be there the first Friday in June. This event says a lot about Pam and her will-ingness to put herself out there and try and make this community a better place, Ivery said. All she wants to do is bring the community together for a fun, relaxing evening where they have an oppor-tunity to meet others who appreciate the arts. Ostrander said he is happy to work with Cooley to promote local artists. He hosts poetry nights, comedy nights, as well as different styles of music each week. He said he has even brought talent scouts and producers from Atlanta to listen to local talent, as recently as last week, Cooley said. We try to help get people hooked up, Ostrander said. Downtown needs to have a lot more going on than it currently does. Through the events held weekly at The Caf Downtown and with Pams First Friday ini-tiative, we are helping to bring that back. Ostrander hopes to continue to host First Friday events and said local talent is always welcome to con-tact him. This event is perfectly in line with our goal of supporting local art and providing this friendly place for people to relax and enjoy the local art-ists, he said. Cooley said these First Friday events are her chance to share some of her life experiences with Lake City. Come out and give us a try, she said. See if you like it. If there is any tal-ent looking to be displayed, come to one of our First Friday events and introduce yourselves, and we will try and get you in, regardless of what that talent is. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, MAY 5, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-04246A In loving memory of our brother Harry Lang.God decided He needed another good man in Heaven, so He took our brother Harry.

Leads on missing teen sought Alana K. Johnston By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City man allegedly stole a gun from a home, and then gave it back before he was arrested because he felt bad about stealing it.. Devontae Lance Levy, 19, 381 NE Voss Road, faces felony charges of larceny, criminal mischief and bur-glary while armed, accord-ing to a Columbia County Sheriffs Office Arrest report. The burglary occurred on April 26 at 193 Rifle Court. Sheriffs deputies went to the home after an alarm triggered, and found the door to the home bust-ed in. Deputies found no one inside, but talked with one of the residents at the home. Joey Wilson, who lives at 193 Rifle Court, met with Deputy Archie Crews on Wednes-day and told him a gun had been sto-len from his home during the burglary. The initial report of the burglary does not mention the sto-len gun. Wilson told Crews that Dwayne Dandy, 49, said he knew who had burglarized his home. He said Levy and Jermaine Lashuane Fulton Jr., 18, 144 NE Campus, stole the gun, the report said. On Thursday, Crews spoke with Wilson about recovering the gun. According to the report, Dandy talked to Fultons mother about the burglary. The report says the gun was going to be left at a church near Wilsons resi-dence so Wilson could pick it up. The report says the location of the church is unknown. Wilson was able to retrieve the gun and told deputies so they could remove it from police data-bases. Crews then drove to Levys home and asked him if he knew why he was there. Levy said he did. Levy admitted to taking the gun, and said Fulton never left the car while he burglarized the Wilson home, the report said. He apologized for his behavior, the report said. I felt bad, thats why I gave the gun back, Levy said according to the report. I made a mistake. Levy was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $20,000 bond.

Mail carriers food drive May 11 DRUGS: FHP nabs driver on I-75 Continued From Page 1Areport on Friday. Woods address and hometown were not includ-ed on the Columbia County Sheriffs Offices website or in the FHP release. The amount and type of drugs also were not listed in the release. Wood was driving a Mercedes, though the year and model were not given in the news release. He was stopped by a trooper about three miles north of Ellisville at 2:30 p.m. Thursday for violating two separate traffic laws. The two laws were not specified in the release and the FHP records depart-ment was unavailable on the weekend to obtain addi-tional information. Because Wood acted nervously, the trooper called in a drug dog team, which led to discovery of the drugs and cash, the release said. Wood was booked into Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $41,000 bond. RAIN: Suwannee Jam not deterred Continued From Page 1A
By TONY BRITT email@example.com on Feb. 19, 2011, Elwood Tyre had a massive stroke. Doctors didnt think he would live through the night, but he did, eventually recovering from the medical emergency and later regaining his strength to the point where he could carry on a normal life. A normal life for Tyre, 81, means one in which he is enthralled by making sugar cane syrup on his family property in the Five Points area. On Friday morning, he made a donation that will ensure future generations of Columbia County youth will have the knowledge to make syrup, too. Columbia County officials held a ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony on Friday for a cane grinding and syrup making build ing at the Alligator Lake Park. The equipment was donated by Tyre in honor of his son, Dwight Tyre, who was killed in a car wreck in 1980. Tyre donated a cane mill to the state years ago thats set up near Pahokee; it was also donated in his sons honor. I think its wonderful to have the building dedicated in my honor, Tyre said. In the 1990s, I did most of the syrup making by myself, but as I got older and had the stroke, Im not able to do any of it. I got a good friend called Pee-Wee and he has learned to make really good syrup. Tyre credits his late friend, Bascom Norris, with persuad ing him to erect a cane grind ing mill at the Columbia County Fairgrounds that could be used for demonstrations for children. Without him (Norris), we wouldnt be here, Tyre said, as he explained to an audience of close to 50 people how he started making syrup. Clint Pittman, Columbia County landscapes and parks director, said the area where the equip ment has been set up contains a cane grinding mill and the build ing contains a kettle where the juice from the sugar cane will be cooked down into syrup. Sugar cane starts out as a grass that grows into a cane stalk and is harvested, stripped of it leaves, cut and put into a grinding mill. The grinding mill squeezes the cane. The juice is filtered out into a catch basin such as a kettle and cooked. The impurities are skimmed off the top, and once its cooked for a certain period of time, it begins to turn to syrup. If its cooked past the syrup stage, it will begin to harden and become a candy-like substance. The juice is then strained again and then it is bottled. The process takes several hours several days from the cane stripping and cutting through the cooking process, Pittman said. Its a long process and a lot of work. Pittman said plans are to have syrup making demonstrations at the park during educational events. Sugar cane is seasonal, so you only have one time of year that you can do this, he said. Once the frost hits here in North Florida, there is no more sugar cane. Typically making syrup is done between October and November.

The meeting will be held at City Hall, starting at 5:30 p.m. According to the meetings agenda, the city charter calls for a review of the district boundaries at least once every five years. City staff recommended the boundaries be changed as some districts have sig nificantly more voters than others. District 10, represented by Eugene Jefferson, cur rently has 941 registered voters. The proposed change to the bound ary lines would give that district 1,479 reg istered vot ers. The largest district by number of voters is District 13, represented by Melinda Moses, with 2,308 registered voters. The pro posed District 13 would have 1,724. District 12, represented by Zack Paulk, has 1,708 registered voters. The pro posed District 12 would have 1,512. District 14, represented by George Ward, currently has 1,158 voters. Staff rec ommends redrawing the lines in that district so that it will have 1,400 voters. There is no District 11, and the mayor is elected by all the registered voters in Lake City. Stephen Witt is the mayor. City attorney Herbert Darby indicated to staff that the proposed changes comply with the city char ter and the Federal Voting Rights Act. Columbia County Supervisor of Elections Liz Horne told city staff the proposed changes are workable, but the voters in those districts will have to be notified of the changes. The cost to mail notifica tions was not provided.

Darby City Rotary Club raises funds for local, international causes From staff reports The Rotary Club of Lake City has par ticipated in the Purple Pinkie Project for the past 11 years and has raised over $49,000 to benefit Rotary Internationals polio eradication initiative. To date there are only three countries left in the world where polio is still endem ic. This years Purple Pinkie Project took place in Columbia County schools on March 22 and raised more than $3,400. Baya Pharmacy matches the first $1,000 raised each year, bringing the total to over $4,400. In the past, the club has added to the total, as well. So, by the time the donation is made, the local club will send a check for $5,000. All totaled, children from Columbia County who have participated in the Purple Pinkie Project are responsible for immunizing more than 80,000 children against polio. This year, Rotary partnered with Columbia County Resources to host Lake Citys first Cow Chip Bingo on March 17. The bingo board was made of a grid mapped out in a field. The squares were sold for $10 and the winner was the person who had the cow place his chip on their square. Scott Owens from the Target Distribution Center was the winner of the $2,500 pay out. The real purpose for Cow Chip Bingo was to raise money for two important causes in the county. Columbia County Resources is a proud partner with Tough Enough to Wear Pink. Rotary will present a check to CCR for Tough Enough to Wear Pink in the amount of $2,291. The Backpacks 4 Food program allows many of our churches and other organiza tions to invest in the health and well-being of Columbia County students by making sure they have food available on the week ends. The response of Columbia County resi dents to Cow Chip Bingo has generated $5,000 for this program.

This years event raised $3,400.

JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High quarterback Austin Williams hands off the ball during a drill. Delay of game BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Tatum Morgan takes ground balls in the infield on Saturday. The Lady Tigers were set to take on Mosley High in the Class 6A Regional Final on Friday, but weather conditions delayed the game until 5 p.m. today. Standing water was still on the field as of 6 p.m on Saturday. TIM KIRBY /Lake City ReporterFort White High coach Dan Marsee tells players the prope r use of the helmet and other safety considerations at the start of practice Saturday morning. Pads go on in Fort White By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE After three days in shorts, Fort White Highs football team couldnt wait to put on the pads. Coach Demetric Jackson called a Saturday practice for 7 a.m. There were other reasons for the early practice weather, fundraising activities at the high school and downtown Fort White and other commitments by players and coaches but it was nice and cool for the first hitting drills of the spring. Following stretches and short sprints to warm up, Jackson gathered the play-ers for a safety presentation by coach Dan Marsee. Marsee related the proper use of the helmet as a safety device and not a weapon. The helmet is not to be used for spearing and play-ers should not lower their heads going into contact. See what you hit and hit what you see, Marsee said. Marsee also stressed, and Jackson emphasized, the symptoms of a concussion and told the players to take them seriously. Dizziness, headaches and especially vomiting are signs of a con-cussion and players were told to go immediately to the trainer to be evaluated. The Indians needed to heed the advice quickly because practice then moved to a session of one-on-one hitting matchups that fired up players and coaches. Jackson had a scrimmage planned for the end of prac-tice on Saturday. We will script 15-20 plays for the varsity and about 12 with the JV, Jackson said Friday evening. We will have the varsity back for 20 more plays, about 40 plays in all. We will mix guys up in different positions. Jackson said after practicing in the rain on Thursday, the team went to the gym on Friday. We had enough of that rain, Jackson said. We had probably our longest ever practice in the gym. We stayed until 6 oclock. Numbers have been good so far. I am really pleased with the turnout, Jackson said. Indians have practice in full gear for first time. INDIANS continued on 5B By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comDelay of game is usually a term associated with foot-ball, but Columbia Highs softball team is receiving its own version after weather conditions pushed back its Class 6A Regional Final against Mosley High until 5 p.m. today. The Lady Tigers were set to host the Lady Dolphins at 7 p.m. on Friday, but a deci-sion was made that after-noon to delay the game due to the weather that rolled through Lake City this weekend. With rain over the last two days, theres a possi-bility the game could be delayed again until Monday, but Columbia head coach Jimmy Williams feels good about the chances that the Lady Tigers play. I do believe we will play, Williams said. The field usually holds up pretTigers finish off strong first week despite rain By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comDespite the weather that has plagued Lake City this week, Columbia Highs football team got back to work with the beginning of spring practice. For head coach Brian Allen and the Tigers, its been three days of work toward next season even if its not been under the best conditions. We tried to manage with what we could, Allen said. We were able to get it in, but its definitely been wet. Its given us a good idea of some of the new kids who are out there who will play for us. Among the group that has caught the eye of the head coach are a group that will be freshmen for the Tigers next season. Theres three 8th graders and four when you look on the offensive side, Allen said. Derontae Jordan is a middle school kid that has the ability to be a good one. Don Robinson, again, weve seen flashes. Robbie Moon is a kid that we got that came in from the first part of the year and will be a good nose tackle. Its early without pads, but the way hes using his hands and how strong he is, its scary how good he can be. Offensively, Allen hasnt noticed as many weapons, but he has his eye on a run-ning back that could take some snaps this fall. Kamario Bell has a chance to be real good, Allen said. If he continues to work, hell be one that everyone will know. There are others, but those are ones that jumped out right away as far as young kids. I know theres some that are going to come but havent been out yet. As far as the players that have been in the program, Allen said theyre working off the rust. Theyre making some mistakes, but theyre minor mistakes, Allen said. Any time youve been out three or four months without doing anything football related, hand signals, hand placement, youll be a little rusty, especially in shorts. What you want to see is Allen taking notice of incoming players. CHS continued on 2B

Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, MAY 5, 2013 5B5BSports CHS: Tigers work toward Purple & Gold game Continued From Page 1B PLAYOFFS: CHS to host Mosley Continued From Page 1B INDIANS: Resume practice Monday Continued From Page 1BWe had 35 varsity guys and 43 JV on Wednesday. That was down to 32 and 40 on Thursday, but it is more than we have had in the past. The spring game against Columbia High is less than two weeks away (7 p.m. May 17 at Arrowhead Stadium), so Jackson has not decided on an intrasquad game. We will have our regular practice on Monday and Tuesday and then make a decision on a Red & Black game, Jackson said. I dont want to commit to one. We might have a scrim-mage at our regular prac-tice time. Jackson earlier said he planned to give the players off on May 11. ty good. We havent had a rain out in two years. The field should be fine by the time we play if we dont get the same kind of rain on Sunday. We need about four hours of dry conditions and we can play in it as long as it doesnt lightning. We just hope its clear for the fans. Williams said a clear night would go a long way toward getting the game in. If it stops over night, we shouldnt have any water on the field, he said. The one thing that worries me is that it might get to the point where it becomes saturated and the water doesnt have anywhere to go. It can only take so much. The negative that goes with the weather other than field conditions is that the Lady Tigers havent been able to hit the practice field as a team in two days. We havent been able to do any defensive work, Williams said. Weve kind of just been on standby. Well come in early before the game and have a little mini practice. On the flip side, the Lady Dolphins have had clear weather and a couple of extra days to prepare. It definitely gave them a couple of extra days, Williams said. Honestly though, I think well be good no matter what. The good thing is that they have to make the trip over here, so that kind of evens things out. Williams debated having practice in the weather, but thought it was wiser to hold out due to the weather. If they havent got it at this point, theyre not going to get it, Williams said. We had a great practice Thursday and sometimes we need these days to come up for air. We dont want to go out there and get anyone hurt. Williams believes that the Lady Tigers have been get-ting ready for this moment since last season. Weve been in these situations building toward this, he said. Its just got to be another game. Thats how were going to treat it. We want to go out there and do our best and hope thats good enough. So far, the Lady Tigers best has been plenty. them flying around doing things the right way. Defensively, Allen already likes what he has seen out of his returning players. Alex Doughty is a kid that has stepped in after missing all last year and he is back on the field now and having a pretty good first few days, Allen said. The things hes learn-ing you can see it show-ing up. Its exciting to see him. Malechi Jean is doing things better than he did as a sophomore. Hes under-standing things that weve been telling him about. Its going to show up when we get in pads. Tyrone Sands is getting cleared and back on the field. Thats very pleasing. If he gets back to 100 percent, hell be super special for us. Of course one of the strongest areas for the Tigers should be their sec-ondary where Columbia returns four starters. Ben (Kuykendall), Trey (Marshall), Roc (Battle), Roger (Cray), again, theyre around running, doing things like theyre sup-posed to as we continue to roll through the spring, Allen said. From an offensive perspective, the Tigers will look to find a quarterback in the fall, but there are other questions as well. On the offensive side, were seeing who is going to take control at the quar-terback and lead us, Allen said. On the offensive line, were young with only Deonte Crumitie and Milla (Chasteen). Were breaking in new guys. None of those guys have had that in-game experience yet. Theyre learning a ton with whats going on these three days. Hope to have them ready to take a job. Itll be interest-ing. Columbia is strong in the receiving category with a host of players returning. It could be one of the stron-ger points of the offense this season if a quarterback steps up. The receivers, Alex Weber, our returning guy, has made some plays, Allen said. J.T. Bradley is another guy returning with experience and hes learn-ing and doing well. Andre Williamson hurt his shoul-der, but was doing decent before he was hurt. Hell miss the rest of the spring. Akeem Williams is a kid were really going to watch for. and do some things on the next level. Columbias practice schedule will remain much the same this week as the Tigers prepare for the Purple & Gold game on Friday. Well practice Wednesday at Annie Mattox, but for the most part well be the same, Allen said. The Purple & Gold game will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Friday with the junior varsity taking the field. Varsity will follow between 7-7:30 p.m. By TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressLeBron James is getting his fourth Most Valuable Player award and the only mystery left is whether the vote was unanimous. The Miami Heat star will be introduced today as the award winner, according to a person familiar with the results and who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the league has not publicly announced this years recip-ient. James will become the fifth player with at least four MVP awards, join-ing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan, Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain. No one has ever swept every first-place vote in the NBAs MVP balloting. After the season he had, James could be the first. I dont know who else youd vote for, Heat forward Chris Bosh said Friday. No offense to everybody else, but thats just how good he has played this year. James averaged 26.8 points, 8.0 rebounds and 7.3 assists this season, shooting a career-best 56 percent. It was absolutely no surprise that he won the award, and given the timetable for Miamis next game the Heat dont open Eastern Conference semifinal play until Monday night against Brooklyn or Chicago it had been widely assumed for several days that Sunday would be the day. If tradition holds, NBA Commissioner David Stern will then present James with the trophy again Monday night in front of the Miami fans. I absolutely have not even thought about it, James said earlier this week when asked if he con-sidered the weight of win-ning the award four times in five years. I have not thought about it, until you just brought it up. I know the history. It would be a unique, unbelievable class I would be a part of, so well see. Only Russell had won four MVPs in five years, and only Abdul-Jabbar had gone back-to-back on the award twice. Abdul-Jabbar has six MVPs in all, Jordan and Russell have five apiece and Chamberlain won four. James won the award in 2009 and 2010, only got four first-place votes in 2011 his first season with the Heat then reclaimed the award last season. The other day I was sitting there with him, a week or two ago and it dawned on me, Heat guard Dwyane Wade told the AP. I said to him, Do you know youre about to get four MVPs in five years? And hes like, Man, Im just a kid from Akron. He could have got-ten five in five. You know how crazy that is? This is crazy. The kid from Akron is truly entering rarefied air now. Its certain that stars like New Yorks Carmelo Anthony, Oklahoma Citys Kevin Durant and the Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant will be listed on bal-lots the league will unveil the full results Sunday though the only drama left is seeing if any voter thought someone had a bet-ter season than James. A panel of writers and broad-casters from the United States and Canada vote for NBA awards. There also is one combined vote from fans who chose an MVP through online balloting or social media. There have been instances of people coming close to sweeping the first-place votes. Shaquille ONeal got 120 of the 121 top votes cast after the 1999-2000 season, with Allen Iverson getting the lone other one that year. And after the 2003-04 sea-son, Kevin Garnett then with Minnesota got 120 of 123 votes, with two going to Jermaine ONeal and the other to Peja Stojakovic. Do the right thing, was Heat forward Shane Battiers suggestion to vot-ers, just before the ballots were due. James finally got his first NBA championship last season, followed that up by helping the U.S. win a gold medal at the London Olympics, and then vowed to come back this season even better. The Heat say he did absolutely that. With nary a sign of a championship hangover, Miami went 66-16 in the regular sea-son, including a 27-game winning streak, the second-best in NBA history.

LeBron wins 4th MVP award Orb comes from behind to win Kentucky DerbyBy MIKE FARRELLAssociated PressLOUISVILLE, Ky. Orb splashed through the slop to win the Kentucky Derby, coming from way back in the pack and giv-ing Hall of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey his first victory in the 3-year-old classic. When the field turned for home on the cool, overcast Saturday after-noon at Churchill Downs, Normandy Invasion grabbed the lead while Orb was gearing up. But in the deep stretch, Orb prevailed, carrying Joel Rosario to his first Derby win. Long shot Golden Soul was second with Revolutionary third. Normandy Invasion faded to fourth. I was really far back, Rosario said. I said hope-fully he can go faster than that. I was saying maybe I was too far back, but it was so easy. Orb, the 5-1 favorite, ran the 1 miles in 2:02.89 Orb paid $12.80, $7.40 and $5.40. Golden Soul returned $38.60 and $19.40 while Revolutionary paid $5.40 to show. McGaughey said the victory meant everything to him. Im thrilled to death for (the owners), thrilled to death for the people who put so much time into this horse, and, of course, Im thrilled to death for me, he said. Todd Pletcher had a record-tying five runners. Revolutionary was the best of the Todd Squad, fol-lowed by Charming Kitten (ninth), Overanalyze (11th), Palace Malice (12th) and Verrazano (14th). Goldencents, owned in part by Rick Pitino, coach of Louisvilles national basketball champions, fin-ished a 17th. His jockey, Kevin Krigger, was trying to become the first black rider to win the race since 1902. Rosie Napravnik was also bidding to make his-tory as the first woman jockey to win the worlds biggest horse race. She finished fifth aboard Mylute, the highest finish by a female rider. D. Wayne Lukas, who won the Derby four times and would have been the oldest trainer to saddle a winner, sent out two runners.

By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org The Columbia County Tax Collectors Office is partnering with LKQ of North Florida in a com munity project aimed at reminding local teenagers about the dangers of tex ting while driving. The two have teamed together to bring in approximately 4,000 plastic thumb rings 2,000 in Columbia High School col ors and 2,000 in Fort White High School colors, that will serve as visual remind ers to avoid texting while driving. Embossed on the thumb rings are the letters W82TXT. When worn on the thumb of a driver it will remind them to Wait to text until a safer time to send their message. Ronnie Brannon, Columbia County Tax Collector, said the tar get group for the pro gram is Columbia High School and Fort White High School students. He said the thumb rings arrived earlier this week and will be distributed in the Tax Collectors Office downtown in Lake City at the Columbia County Courthouse Annex and in the Town of Fort White on Wednesdays at the tax collectors branch office in the Sheriffs District office on Wilson Spring Road. Our community needs to come together on how important it is not to text while driving, just as we have helped out MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) and cut down on the severe accidents in our county, said Robert Rutledge, LKQ of North Florida plant manager. Its very important to us to be a part of this and commu nicate to the public. We see wrecked vehicles all the time where people are killed and we just want to be a part of trying to cut down on that statistic. I would like to thank LKQ of North Florida for their support of this effort to save lives and educate our children to the dan ger of not paying attending when driving, Brannon said in a prepared state ment. We hope this simple action will contribute to a reduction in motor vehicle accidents and save lives. Students who are issued a learners permit or receive their Class E driv er license will be offered a pledge card to sign where they can pledge that they will not text while driving, will wear their seat belts and encourage friends and family to always do the same. Students who already have their Learners Permit or Class E license are also welcome to come to the to the tax collectors office, sign the pledge card and receive their thumb ring. Ashtyn Vincent, 18, was the first Columbia County student to get one of the thumb rings by completing and signing a card pledg ing that she wouldnt text while driving. I signed the pledge card because I think its very important for teens to know that its very danger ous to text while driving, it can kill you and your friends or anybody in gen eral, she said. Everyone should take the pledge not to text while driving. The tax collectors office is open from 8 a.m. 4:30 p.m. Monday Friday at the Columbia County Courthouse Annex down town and Wednesdays at the Sheriffs District Office in Fort White. 1CBIZ FRONT Lake City Reporter 1CBIZ FRONT Week of May 5-11, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section C Columbia, Inc.

By WAYNE PARRYAssociated PressATLANTIC CITY, N.J. With legal gambling now moving beyond the casinos and onto the Internet, the industry is brac-ing for the most far-reaching changes in its history. A Las Vegas firm, Ultimate Gaming, on Tuesday became the first in the U.S. to offer online poker, restricting it, for now, to players in Nevada. New Jersey and Delaware also have legalized gambling over the Internet and expect to begin offering such bets by the end of this year. And many inside and outside the industry say the recent position taken by the federal government that states are free to offer Internet gambling as long as it doesnt involve sports betting will lead many cash-hungry state governments to turn to the Web as a new source of tax revenue. Ten other states have considered some form of Internet gambling so far this year, but none has legalized it yet. Efforts to pass a national law legalizing online poker have sputtered, leaving states free to pass laws as they see fit. Its no longer a question of if Internet gaming is coming; its a question of when, said Frank Fahrenkopf, president of the American Gaming Association, the trade organization for the nations commercial brick-and -mortar casinos. Unless there is a federal bill passed, we are going to have the greatest expansion of legalized gam-bling in the United States. I dont think thats what anyone intended, but it is what were seeing. The brave new world for gambling brings with it a host of questions and con-cerns. Will letting people bet online result in fewer visits to casinos, and therefore fewer dealers, beverage servers and hotel and restaurant workers at the casinos? Will Internet bets create a new revenue stream from new players, or will it simply redirect money from gamblers who oth-erwise would have visited a casino, and might have eaten dinner and seen a show, as well? And will it create even more prob-lem gamblers? Michael Frawley is chief operating officer of The Atlantic Club Casino Hotel, perhaps the most endangered of Atlantic Citys 12 casinos. A deal for it to be sold to the parent company of PokerStars, the worlds largest online poker website, is up in the air. The Atlantic Clubs owners said Wednesday the deal was dead, but PokerStars said the next day it still wants to salvage the purchase. It was not immediately clear whether the deal will ultimately get done. Frawley said the Internets vast reach could help double business at his casi-no, provided the right balance is struck between the online and physical gambling experiences for customers. If you go to the movies, you can watch one at home, or you can watch one in the theater, he said. Both of them can be a great experience. Regardless of whether PokerStars buys The Atlantic Club, Internet gambling is expected to take off in New Jersey before long. The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has said it is preparing to offer online gambling later this year, and Gary Loveman, CEO of Caesars Entertainment, has also said he expects his companys four Atlantic City casinos to grab a large share of New Jerseys online market. Geoffrey Stewart is general manager of Caesars Online Poker. Parent company Caesars Entertainments World Series of Poker brands, as well as its 37 casinos across the U.S., make it an early favorite to be a leader in online gambling. He said brick-and-mortar casinos such as Caesars Palace can use Internet play to comple-ment their physical casinos. Someone comes to play with us online, we will be able to offer them seats to the real World Series of Poker, or offer them hotel rooms at Caesars Palace, he said. Like any other business, youre always looking for what is the next distribution channel. Not everyone in the industry is all-in, however. The American Gaming Association conducted a study a few years ago on whether poker-only Internet gambling which it supports would cannibalize the existing brick-and-mortar casinos. The study deter-mined that it would not. But when Internet gambling allows for casino games, such as in the bill recently adopted by New Jersey, the traditional casinos could suffer, Fahrenkopf said. The most popular form of Internet gambling is online poker. When the Justice Department charged executives of three online poker sites in April 2011 with conducting illegal transac-tions, it was a $6 billion a year industry. After the crackdown, it was largely on hiatus, because at the time, taking online bets from U.S. customers was illegal. But not long afterward, the U.S. Justice Department revised its stance, allowing states to take online bets so long as they didnt involve sporting events. Eric Baldwin is a professional poker player whos eager to get back online again now that poker is once again avail-able over the Net. The moneys good when things are good, he said. On the other hand, he acknowledges, Most people dont go to work for 12 hours, do their best and come home down a couple thousand dollars. He plans to at least try out legalized Internet poker to see if the player pools are big enough to make it worthwhile. Lawrence Vaughan, chief operating officer of South Point Poker, one of the first Nevada online licensees, said legalizing Internet poker removes the stigma some people had associated with it. You had to move money in shady ways around the world to even play online, he said. Now its the sort of thing your mom could sign up for. Ultimate Gaming CEO Tobin Prior, whose firm started taking poker bets Tuesday in Nevada, added, Players wont have to worry if their money is safe. They are going to be able to play with people they can trust and know the highest regu-latory standards have been applied. PokerStars, one of the parties charged in the 2011 crackdown that came to be known in the industry as Black Friday, later bought Full Tilt Poker, another defen-dant, and reached a settlement with the federal government, paying $547 million to the Justice Department and $184 mil-lion to poker players overseas to settle a case alleging money laundering, bank fraud and illegal gambling. It admitted no wrongdoing and says it is in good standing with governments around the world. Its parent company, The Rational Group, based on the Isle of Man in the U.K., would not say whether it plans to try to buy another casino or partner with one to gain entry into the U.S. online gambling market. Introducing new players to poker over the Internet makes it less scary and poten-tially more popular, said David Schwartz, director of the Center for Gaming Research at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. It was mostly old guys with cigars, he said. It was very intimidating to walk into a poker room and see a guy whos a thousand years old, smoking 10 packs of cigarettes a day, giving you dirty looks because youre taking the wrong card, he said. What online poker did was let people get familiar with the game, feel a little bit of confidence and then they said, I want to go to Vegas and do the real thing. 2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF MAY 5, 2013 2CBIZ/MOTLEY Name That CompanyF[[jXi\#pfl[fekbefndpeXd\% 9lk@dfe\f]8d\i`ZXjcXi^\jkZfd$ gXe`\j#fne`e^;X`ipHl\\e#9\eaXd`e Dffi\#Af_ejDXem`cc\#><@:F#E\YiXjbX =lie`kli\DXik#E\kA\kj#J\\j:Xe[`\j# 8Zd\9i`Zb#9EJ=#K_\GXdg\i\[:_\]# =il`kf]k_\CffdXe[dlZ_dfi\%DpZcXjj 8j_Xi\ji\Z\ekcpjfcfiXifle[(-'#''' \XZ_#Xe[dpZcXjj9j_Xi\j]fiXYflk('.%@ejli$ XeZ\`jdpdX`eYlj`e\jj#Ylkk_ifl^_jkfZb@Xcjf fneY`^Z_lebjf]8d\i`ZXe

D rive anywhere in the state right now and youll see a kaleidoscope of color along the road side. These wildflowers are at their peak during the month of May, making Florida live up to Ponce de Leons description of this land he traveled 500 years ago. What a colorful sight those native wildflowers must have been for early visitors. The states roadside wildflower planting pro gram actually had its humble beginnings in the early 1960s. Pasture grass, heavily seeded with crimson clover, was used to sod a roadway project near Tallahassee. When the public response to the pretty roadside clover blooms was so favorable, the wildflower planting project took root in the state. This accidental roadside planting actually predated the 1965 Federal Highway Beautification Act, the project championed by Lady Bird Johnson. To help fund research on growing wildflowers and obtaining seed in Florida, the State Wildflower license plate was designed and became available in 2000. In 2002, the Florida Wildflower Foundation was created to manage funds. Read more about this organization at www. floridawildflower foundation.org. One purpose of the wildflower program isthe conservation and protection of Floridas natural resources and scenic beauty. Besides being absolutely beauti ful, the colorful sights are believed to improve safety on the highways by increasing driver alert ness. LIFE Sunday, May 5, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D I t was the Summer of 2012 and Sue Towns and I were on another road trip, this time from Niagara Falls to the coast of Oregon. Since we would be in close enough proximity, my goal or lofty idea was to have my feet in all five Great Lakes. How many people can say that? I think Sue likes most of my ideas too. First up, Lake Ontario from the New York side. We were looking for a winery and found the lake opportunity beforehand and stopped at a public park at Olcott Beach. There were other people around the lakefront, so we asked someone to capture the Kodak moment. I also picked up a couple of sou venir rocks to take home should have five each when we arrive back in Lake City. Next stop to meet this goal was in Ohio in Geneva-on-the-Lake at Lakehouse Inn and Winery. I was sure hoping this would be a better winery stop than the one we went to in New York the previ ous day. Geneva-on theLake looked almost like a boardwalk, beach resort Feet in five Great Lakes Story ideas?

Wedding guests were transported to the Whitefield Chapel on the grounds of the Bethesda Boys Academy by the well-loved Savannah trolleys. Parents of the bride are Mr. Larry and Dr. Sheri Carder Gunter of Lake City, Florida, and Mr. and Mrs. George Carder III of Searcy, Arkansas. She is the granddaughter of Mrs. William E. Thompson, Sr. and the late Mr. Thompson and Mrs. George Gunter and the late Mr. Gunter, all of Conway, Mrs. Frank Carder, Jr. and the late Mr. Carder of Searcy, and Mr. and Mrs. Raymon Pulley of McRae. The groom is the son of Claire Rita and Rod Rockwell of England, Arkansas. He is the grand-son of Mr. and Mrs. Baisel Newton of England, Mr. and Mrs. Sue King of Humnoke, and the late Jessie Farrell Rockwell. The 100-year old chapels doors were enhanced with bouquets of palmetto fans tied with ribbons as guests entered. Magnolia garlands laced with roses and bay leaves graced the chancel, and pew bows of tiny pal-metto fans with scattered rose petals on the antique brick floors lined the aisle. Classical music was provid-ed by Leslie Adair, harpist. Escorted by both her father and her mother, the bride wore an ivory A-line designer gown of Alencon lace and pearls over silk peau de soie with a strap-less sweetheart neckline and chapel train. She wore her mothers cathedral-length veil of silk tulle. In her shoe, she wore the same six pence from her mothers wedding. Her hand-tied bouquet was designed from Sahara garden roses, and white tulips, freesia, mini calla lilies, fragrant stock, wax berries, and dendrobium orchids. Her wedding jew-elry was a sapphire drop necklace set in diamonds. The bride also wore her grandmothers garter. George Frank Beau Carder, IV, of Dallas, the brides brother, was her Man of Honor. Bridesmaids were Kate Dougherty of Houston, Ginger Cheek of Bryant, Casey Hawkins of Searcy, and Nicola Hodge of Brisbane, Australia. The female attendants wore floor-length navy chiffon gowns with strapless neck-lines. Their necklaces were gifts from the bride. They carried smaller versions of the brides bouquet. Wesley Higgins of Natchitoches, La., was best man. Groomsmen were Ty Jordon of Shreveport, La.; Elliot Guidroz of Natchitoches, La.; Schuyler Van Doren of Little Rock; and Michael Dawodu of Austria. Groomsmen wore black Vera Wang tuxedos with white/black acces-sories. Boutonnieres were mini calla lilies. Following the wedding, the guests reboarded the trolleys and were regaled with a narrated, guided tour of historical Savannah as they returned downtown for the reception at the Olde Pink House, constructed in the 1700s. The brides uncle and aunt, Steve and Caroline Thompson, renowned designers from Santa Barbara, California, cre-ated the setting in the ballroom of the Olde Pink House. Guests sat at round tables covered in white lin-ens with chocolate under-skirts. The tables contained candlescapes in white and navy, interspersed with multiple vases containing Sahara garden roses and white hydrangeas, calla lilies, and tulips. Menu cards in navy, white, and gold served as place cards for guests. Guests were served traditional Savannah repasts. A dance followed the formal seated dinner. In lieu of party favors, the bride made a donation to her late grandfathers pre-ferred charity, Soaring Wings Childrens Ranch in Conway. The bride and groom left the reception under a canopy of sparklers and were driven away in one of the charming pedi-cabs indigenous to the historic district of Savannah. Other weekend guest activities preceding the wedding included a wel-come southern dinner at the historic Mrs. Wilkes in Savannah, as well as a traditional low coun-try boil and oyster roast on Tybee Island, hosted by the grooms parents; breakfasts for both the bride and grooms wed-ding parties before the ceremony; a ghost tour of the city at night; and a scavenger hunt of his-toric downtown Savannah ending with an ice cream event at Leopolds. The bride has a doctoral degree in educational lead-ership, a Masters in public service from the Clinton School, and a law degree. She is the Deputy Director of the Arkansas Tobacco Control Board. She was a 2001 honor graduate of Columbia High School and a dual enrollment student at Lake City Community College. The groom holds a bachelors degree from Ouachita University in busi-ness administration. He is a Regional Representative for the ASC Insurance Agency and is an entrepreneurial land developer. Following their wedding trip to Spain and Portugal, the couple is at home in Little Rock. Birth: On Friday, April 12, 2013 Mason Michael Haase decided it was time to meet his father Keith, his mother Dana and his brother Kenton. He arrived at North Florida Regional Medical Center weighing 7 pounds, 3 ounces and was 20 inches long. Soon afterward he went home to Fort White. His proud grandparents are Tom and Mary Ann Haase and Garry and Brenda Smith of Simpsonville, South Carolina. TRAVEL: Feet in the five Great Lakes Continued From Page 1Dtype of place with a throw-back to the 1950s with their roadside eateries and arcades. The stop was well worth it. Not only did we taste some wines, we sat outside on the deck over-looking Lake Erie and had lunch. Then, we put our feet in the water! On a side note, we picked up some wash-cloths to wash our feet off after getting in these lakes. The paper towels from the rest rooms and nap-kins from restaurants just werent cutting it. Lake Huron, from Mackinac Island three down, two more to go! The rocks are killing our feet by the way. I realized that I forgot to pick up a sou-venir rock from this lake because I was so anxious to get off the rocks. I had to go back for them the next morning. The next day, back on the road a little west of a stop in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, I knew there would be some pull-outs for us to make our obligatory feet in the water stop. Most of the pull-outs I could see on the map ended up being private drives or roads into subdivisions with empty lots. So, we took advantage of one of the empty lots, not knowing when our next opportunity would be. We had to hike through some brush, and Sue was a little worried about crit-ters, dogs or someone with a shotgun, so she brought her weapon of choice with her Hot Shot wasp spray. Of course, I just made a bee line for the water because once I get an idea in my head Im just going for it. Sue said, as Im wor-ried about picking out pret-ty rocks, that I had rocks in my head. LOL! Possibly I do. Not even a mile down the road, we found a park with a beach front that would have been much easier. Oh well, you never know. But we can check off Lake Michigan. Our last great lake, Lake Superior, from the waters edge in Duluth, Minn., we dipped our feet in. I didnt forget the rocks this time and we noticed the differ-ences in the rocks in each location and the lake beds themselves, but it took us five lakes to realize it. Then since we were on a roll and after leaving this region, we thought we had to put our feet in everything else we could find and document it: the Yellowstone River, snow atop Beartooth Pass and, eventually, the Pacific Ocean.

Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, MAY 5, 2013 3D3DLIFEBy SCOTT MAYEROWITZAP Airlines WriterNEW YORK Its May. Memorial Day and the end of the school year are in sight. Suddenly, youre thinking about a summer vacation. A little advance planning and some insider tips can save you a lot of money. Whether youre book-ing airfare, a car rental or a hotel room, there are questions you should ask first.AIR TRAVEL Q: When is the best time to buy airfare? A: There is no overarching rule, but generally the sweet spot for buying is four to six weeks before you travel. Prices are highest eight to 10 weeks and two to three weeks in advance. However, start your search earlier, if possible. Learn what fares tend to be on a route so you can jump on a deal when one appears. Timing it right can save a family hundreds of dol-lars. And remember, with most fares you now have 24 hours to cancel for any reason. Use that to your advantage.Q: Is it worth paying for extras such as more legroom, access to shorter security lines and early boarding?A: There are a number of variables to consider here, including the length of your flight and your legs. The airline and time of day can also matter. You can buy your way to the front of a security line. United, for examples, charges $9 for the privilege. But first consider the time youre flying. At lunchtime on a Tuesday, the airport is prob-ably empty anyway. However, if youre leaving Orlando or Las Vegas on a Sunday, the fee could be money well spent. Boarding early improves your chances of finding overhead space. But thats about it. If you dont have a carry-on bag, then save the money typically $10 each way. Only on Southwest which doesnt assign seats is there an additional advantage: being first to pick where to sit. Then theres legroom. JetBlue charges extra for seats in the front of the plane with more legroom. But its standard seats already have three inches more legroom than a similar seat on United. Preferred seats on American Airlines start at $4 and climb to $99, depending on the length of a flight. But there isnt extra space youre just nearer the front. Use sites like SeatGuru.com and SeatExpert.com to review specific seats.RENTAL CARS Q: Do I need rental car insurance?A: The rental firms sell collision damage waiver (CDW) insurance for up to $25 extra a day. It offers protection from theft, vandalism or other dam-age. Its a major source of rev-enue. Decide whether you need this insurance long before you get to the counter. Your personal insurance policy likely covers rental cars. It prob-ably also extends liability insur-ance to your rental, which you also need. But confirm this well ahead of time with your insurer. Many credit cards offer rental car insurance. Some offer pri-mary insurance. Most only cover what your personal insurance does not. And cards have plenty of exclusions. If you are renting for more than two weeks or trav-eling to Ireland, Israel, Jamaica, Australia, Italy or New Zealand, you might not be covered. Exotic and luxury cars, some vans, motorcycles and SUVs arent covered. Your card probably doesnt cover the rental companys loss-of-use fee a surcharge for the revenue lost while the vehicle is in the shop. Some personal insurance policies cover this, some dont. Pay for the rental with the card that gives you the best protection. Debit cards typically dont offer the same coverage. As for liability insurance, if you dont have a personal policy you should probably buy this extra coverage, which costs a few hundred dollars. Or if you rent frequently, insurance com-panies will sell you annual non-owner car insurance policies.Q: Is it worth adding a GPS or toll collection device? A: You dont need to pay up to $14 extra a day for a GPS. If you own a portable GPS, bring it with you. Or use your smart-phone. Just be warned: using the smartphones GPS tends to drain its battery. An automatic toll collection device will cost about $5 a day. It can save you time at busy toll plazas if youre traveling during holiday weekends. But when traffic is normal, it is harder to justify the time savings. If you decline the service and the car still has a toll device, make sure it is properly stored in the protective case. If a toll booth picks up the signal youll be charged the toll and face a hefty penalty from the rental company.HOTELS Q: How can I save a few bucks on my stay?A: Ask about extra charges. Parking at some hotels might be $10 a night, while big city hotels can charge in excess of $50. Internet access might cost $10 a day or more. Many big hotels also have a mandatory resort fee that includes Internet, phone calls and use of the pool that can run $25 a night or more. Look for savings on food and drink. Hotel chains such as Embassy Suites, Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn Express offer free breakfasts. Others offer free bottled water in the room. Join the frequent guest program. Omni, Fairmont and Kimpton all give program mem-bers free WiFi even those who have yet to spend a night. Fairmont gives its members free access to its health clubs. Kimpton gives a $10 credit toward snacks in its minibars. Big chains typically run summer promotions. They offer loy-alty club members rewards like a $25 gas card or a free future night after just two stays. For smaller hotels and bed and breakfasts, pick up the phone and negotiate.Q: Are nonrefundable rooms a good deal?A: Sites like Priceline and Hotwire offer deep discounts in exchange for taking a chance. Vacationers only learn the name of a hotel after they pay upfront. They also arent guaranteed a bed type or choice of smoking or non-smoking room. And some hotels give such guests less-desirable room locations, like next to the ice machine. Many hotels now offer nonrefundable rates on their own websites. The savings might be less, but you still get to pick your room type and know where you will be staying. If your plans change and you rebook, how-ever, you lose your money. Keep in mind that room prices can drop after you book. That discounted, nonrefundable rate could still be higher than if you booked the room a month later. A relatively new travel site, Tingo.com, tries to balance the best of both worlds. Guests prepay for a fully-refundable hotel room. But if the rate falls, Tingo automatically cancels the reservation and rebooks travel-ers at the new, lower rate, and refunds the difference. The typical rebate is $50, according to the site, which is owned by TripAdvisor.SUMMER TRAVEL ASSOCIATED PRESS FILETourists and local residents enjoy a day at the beach a s Memorial Day weekend begins in the South Beach area of Miami Beach in 2010. With a little advance planning, a nd some insider tips, summer vacations can be a lot less expensive. Scientists help catalog official fish names guideFrom staff reportsGAINESVILLE Florida Museum of Natural History researchers have co-authored the latest edi-tion of the universal ref-erence for fish names in North America, an impor-tant resource for scientists, naturalists and fishermen. The publication improves communication among fisheries biologists and others with an interest in fishes, a vital resource with substantial economic importance for humans. U.S. commercial and rec-reational saltwater fishing generated more than $199 billion in sales in 2011, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Fisheries Service. The seventh edition of Common and Scientific Names of Fishes from the United States, Canada, and Mexico is compiled by a joint committee of the American Fisheries Society and the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists. Published online in April by the American Fisheries Society and now available in print, the book contin-ues efforts to standardize names of North American freshwater and marine fishes. Every ichthyologist and every fisheries biolo-gist relies on this book for the correct names to use in any publication, said lead author Larry Page, ichthyology curator at the Florida Museum of Natural History on the University of Florida campus. Its a really important reference because of all the popular articles written on fishes. People have to use the cor-rect name if theyre going to clearly communicate. The book includes 3,875 native and established exotic freshwater and marine species in the U.S., Canada and Mexico with their accepted scientific and common names. It lists Spanish or French names if their distribution occurs where those languages are spoken and distinguishes when species are extinct or established, meaning non-natives that are breeding. The books first edition, published in 1948 with 570 entries, primarily included the better-known sport, commercial and forage fishes. Major changes from the previous edition pub-lished in 2004 include the addition of Arctic Ocean species, common names in French for Canadian species and capitalization of all common names in English. While most modifications were straightforward, some species are ambigu-ous because of conflicting conclusions among scien-tists. In controversial cir-cumstances, the joint com-mittee seeks opinions of experts and chooses the name that seems best sup-ported, Page said. When names are changed, we have to explain why we changed them and refer to the sys-tematic studies, said Page, who chairs the seven-mem-ber board. GARDEN: Enjoy roadside wildflowers Continued From Page 1DStands of wildflowers dont need to be mowed as often as grass, so there is an economic benefit due to lower maintenance costs. Where did these lovely roadside native wildflow-ers come from? Many of the plants that you see were naturally occurring wildflowers that have been very well man-aged by our county and the state Department of Transportation. With the use of proper manage-ment practices such as timely mowing, natural wildflower populations have been preserved and expanded. In addition, native wildflower seeds, grown in Florida, are planted for new areas. The environments around the state are dif-ferent, but some wildflow-ers can be found through-out Florida. Some to watch for this month are coreopsis (yellow), pink and purple phlox, blanket flower (yellow and orange-red) and black-eyed Susan. You may see blueeyed grass, which is not really a grass at all, but a relative of the garden iris. Coreopsis, our state wildflower, is even popular in home gardens. There are fifteen Coreopsis spe-cies that grow in Florida, and they are all bright yellow except for the pink swamp coreopsis. Most coreopsis, or tickseed, growing along our roads, are Leavenworths tick-seed or lanceleaf tickseed. Lanceleaf tickseed is short and has a totally yel-low flower. Leavenworths tickseed grows taller and has a yellow flower with a brownish center. Enjoy a colorful trip through the county or state this spring. If you want to start your own patch of wildflowers, large or small, check the grow-ers cooperative of Florida-grown seeds at www.flori-dawildflowers.com SUMMER: County rec department getting ready Continued From Page 1DThere are two main programs the recreation department offers start-ing June 10 and ending Aug. 2. One program is free to the public, and allows parents to drop children off at the Richardson Community Center. Coppock asked that children be dropped off for the free day pro-gram no earlier than 8 a.m. Children should be picked up from the center no later than 5 p.m., and if the children are going to stay the whole day, they should bring a snack, he said. The other program is a two-month summer camp and costs $225. Coppock said the camp is limited to 50 spots. Campers should arrive at the Richardson Community Center at 7:30 a.m. and should be picked up by 5:30 p.m. We dont want any child left here unsupervised, Coppock said. The center requires children to be at least 6 years old to participate in the camps. We require them to be at least 6 years old because theyre used to taking instruction in a classroom environment, Coppock said. We stress those age requirements for the childrens safety. He said a child may not listen to recreation department staff if he or she is not used to listening to adults who arent their parents. The recreation department has hired one additional staff mem-ber, and an intern volunteered to help with the free program for the children. The department has two part-time staff members during the school year, he said, but when sum-mer hits, the part-time staff mem-bers become full-time. Coppock said about 100 children are anticipated to attend the free day program every day. We know that program is going to get a lot of attention from the public, Coppock said. There will be four adults in the center at all times. The Richardson Community Center is open six days a week, but closes on Sundays and the holidays. The summer camp and free day program will be only offered during weekdays. This year we are going to run the day camp and the summer camp in conjunction with the facility being open, Coppock said. Breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided to the children who attend the paid summer camp, and the meals are included in the cost of the program. While the summer camp does offer fun field trips and sporting activities throughout the summer, theres also an educational backdrop to the camp. There will be basketball camp but there will also be math camp and reading camp among many others, Coppock said. This year, the Columbia County Sheriffs Office will hold its summer camp at Richardson Community Center starting June 24 and ending June 28. Coppock said the sheriffs office program will be open to every-body and will be free. We are all working together for the benefit of the children, Coppock said. While giving them something wholesome and instructive to do dur-ing the summer. Coppock stressed that every staff member of the department must passes a background check required by the state Department of Family and Children to be a certified DCF summer camp worker. All the staff are fingerprinted and pass a level two background check, he said. Things to ask before booking a vacation Q D.

DEAR ABBY: Im a 60-year-old woman with grown children. My husband and I divorced after 30 years of marriage because he met someone at work. It was a quick process, and because I was in shock, I agreed to the terms of the divorce even though they werent in my favor. Two years ago I met a very nice man who treats me with respect and love. He wants a future for us, and so do I, but I cant get over one thing: He has two illegitimate children -one he didnt even know about -and although the son is an adult, he is still paying back support. I hate to sound like a snob, but this situation isnt OK with me. Im afraid I will always bring it up when I am angry. Im thinking maybe if we wait until the support obliga-tion has ended I might feel different, but who knows? Id appreciate some advice. -CANT GET OVER IT IN GEORGIA DEAR CANT GET OVER IT: I know very few people over 35 who dont carry some kind of baggage from past experi-ences. You dont have to approve of everything in his suitcase, but if you plan on having a long-term relationship with this very nice man, you will have to accept that he is fulfilling his legal obligation. Dragging the past into the present during an argument is an unhealthy expression of anger. Its guaranteed to drive a part-ner away. Until you can find a more constructive way to work out disagree-ments, you shouldnt marry anyone. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are in our 30s and have been married 15 years. Over the past year we have been intimate only about once every three months. I tried to spice things up to see if I could get him interested, but he reacted by becom-ing upset, defensive and insinuating that I have an unnatural fixation on sex. After some discussions, it turns out hes hav-ing erectile dysfunction problems. I was relieved to know it wasnt lack of interest, but now Im even more confused by his unwillingness to see a doc-tor. It has been a couple of months since he confided his problem to me, but he has done nothing to try and correct it. I offered to go to the doctor with him, have joint therapy -I even tried being a little extra kinky to see if it would help. He still refuses to see a doctor or go to therapy. Im completely stumped and unsure what else to do. Any advice will truly be appreciated. -NEEDS LOVIN IN CALIFORNIA DEAR NEEDS LOVIN: You have done everything you can do. Your husband may be embarrassed or afraid, which is why hes avoiding going to a doctor. Be supportive, but you need to ask him what he plans to do about this -if anything -because the absence of physical affec-tion is unfair to you. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): You will negotiate and pontificate successfully by using your creative imagi-nation to elaborate expres-sively what it is you are trying to achieve. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take charge. Use your tenacity and drive to accomplish what you set out to do. A journey that enlightens you personally, professionally or spiritually will make a difference to the way you carry on with friends and colleagues. ++++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): Make changes that will help you build confidence and succeed. Impulsive decisions or purchases will add to your stress. Get serious about budget knowledge and advancement. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Participate in some-thing out of the ordinary. Join a group or take part in an event and you will meet new people who spark an interest in the way you spend your downtime. Love and romance are in the stars. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Listen carefully. Someone will want you to take on responsibilities that dont belong to you. Have your plans ready and your excuse or refusal speech ready. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your curiosity will take you on an unusual journey. Open up emotion-ally, spiritually or verbally to the people you encoun-ter. Communication will bring you one step closer to your life goals and greater realization regard-ing whats most important to you. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Consider how you feel about the different relationships you have with personal and profes-sional people in your life. A change of attitude may be required in order to realign the way you move forward with someone who has been demanding or neglectful. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Youll be drawn to people who share your interests and who want to collaborate on future proj-ects. Love is on the rise, and making a promise to someone you care about will help enhance a rela-tionship that may be get-ting stale. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Home is where the heart is, and what you do to make your place more comfortable and inviting will also lead to better relationships with the people in your life who count the most. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Revive old ideas, goals and promises, and share your thoughts and intentions with someone you want to spend more time with. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Learn something new.
