By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comV erlin Cox stood in the pro-cessional line at the Saint Leo University graduation with a mixture of wonder, excitement and satisfaction running through his mind. I started going back to college, and once I had my family, it was a lot hard-er. So, graduating definitely means a lot to me, he said. Im hoping to take my love of education now and put it in the classroom. Cox, 34, of Lake City dropped out of college after he finished high school, but Friday afternoon he was one of an estimated 75 Saint Leo graduation can-didates set to receive degrees. Saint Leo University held its annual commencement exercises Friday at the Florida Gateway College Howard Conference Center.

According to sheriffs report, Valdes exited the home brandish-ing a shotgun at about 11:50 p.m. Wednesday. Authorities say members of the Multi-Jurisdictional Task Force ordered him to drop the weapon but he fired at them instead. The officers returned fire, killing Valdes.

Columbia played its way to a 3-0 lead heading into the fourth inning before lightning delayed the game around 6 p.m. The initial delay was set to end at 6:30 p.m., but the rain did not let up, pushing resumption of the game back to 9 p.m. After returning to the field at 9 p.m., Columbia and Pembroke Pines Charters athletic directors met with the FHSAA and the decision was made to resume the game at 9:30 a.m. today.

Rick Scott. Scott has until May 24 to act on a proposed $74.5 billion state budget. The Republican-led Legislature on Thursday officially put the budget on Scotts desk. Scott is expected to sign the budget into law, especially since it includes $480 million for teacher pay raises. But the Republican governor can use his veto pen to wipe out individual spending items in the budget. Scott has already warned legislators that he expects them to justify the millions they put in the budget for hometown projects. Scott may also veto a proposed 3 percent tuition hike for university and college students. Scott has maintained a hard line against tuition hikes this year. The budget covers state spending from July 1 to June 30, 2014. Bus driver faces charges for fight WINTER HAVEN A bus driver in central Florida skipped all the stops on her route and took the children to her house, where she staged a fight between two teen age girls, authorities said Friday. Patrice Sanders, 29, picked up the children at three schools in Bartow, about 40 miles east of Tampa, as part of her nor mal duties. While on the bus, a 13 and a 16-year-old girl got into a verbal con frontation, the Polk County Sheriffs Office said. This is going to be handled today and they just need to fight, Sanders allegedly said, according to deputies. The Polk County Public Schools driver allegedly took the students to her house in Lakeland, bypass ing the stops she was supposed to take to let the kids off. She then ordered the students off the bus. The teens then began fighting in Sanders front yard. Authorities said she did not do anything to stop them, only standing by and watching. At least one student recorded the fight on a cellphone. When the girls finished fighting, Sanders ordered all the students back on the bus. Deputies say the two girls then began fight ing again. Sanders alleg edly pulled the bus over and watched the girls fight again. She did not try to stop them, investigators said. Sanders then took all the students to their stops, but not before telling them, What happens on the bus stays on the bus, deputies said. The bus driver has been charged with child abuse, neglect, false imprison ment and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. State bar says disbar ex-judge FORT LAUDERDALE The Florida Bar is rec ommending that a former Broward County judge be disbarred for ethical trans gressions while presiding over a murder trial. Ana Gardiner resigned from the bench in 2010 while under investigation for having a close relation ship with a prosecutor who was trying the case before her. It later emerged that Gardiner had exchanged more than 900 phone calls and 471 text messages with the prosecutor during the trial. A judicial referee rec ommended a one-year suspension of Gardiners law license. But the Bar has asked the Florida Supreme Court to disbar her entirely, arguing that she refused to accept responsibility and showed no remorse. Gardiner has 30 days to respond. She has said she never discussed the murder case with the pros ecutor during their out-ofcourt contacts. Man enters plea in hazing case ORLANDO The roommate of the Florida A&M drum major who died after undergoing a hazing ritual in 2011 plead ed no contest to hazing charges on Friday before his trial scheduled for next week. During a status hear ing, prosecutors agreed to dismiss a manslaughter charge against 25-year-old Rikki Wills in exchange for his plea. He will be sen tenced next month. Jury selection had been scheduled for Monday after Wills rejected a plea deal offered by the prosecution last week. He had filed a demand for a speedy trial in early April. He faced a manslaugh ter charge and two counts of hazing. The manslaugh ter count carried up to a 15-year prison sentence. The plea deal will not require prison time, assis tant state attorney Nicole Pegues said. She would not elaborate on the details of what his sentence could be. Siblings charged in chips theft OCALA A brother and sister have been arrested after a deputy found a van overflowing with bags of chips that were apparently taken from a Frito-Lay factory. The deputy pulled the siblings over early Friday after seeing a child jump ing around in the back seat. Twenty-five year-old Darren Hagerman says he and his sister, 22-yearold Jessica Huggard, have keys to the factories and travel between Marion and Citrus counties collecting expired bags of chips and reselling them to make a living. The Ocala Star Banner reports a district manager told the deputy that only expired products would be in the trash. Otherwise, they would come from a truck or loading dock. About half the packages in the siblings van had expired dates. They were both charged with grand theft. 2 charged with human trafficking CLEARWATER Two men have been charged with leading a humantrafficking ring involving at least 16 women in the Tampa Bay area. Peter D. Kitt and Shawn D. Franklin were being held Friday on $1 million bond each on charges of racketeering and con spiracy. Authorities say the women were recruited from strip clubs and sent to a brothel in Pinellas County to become prosti tutes. They were routinely given drugs and beaten. Attorney General Pam Bondi called the womens captivity akin to modernday slavery. Bondis office, the Clearwater Police Department and eight other law enforcement agencies partnered in the investigation. LAS VEGAS O .J. Simpson will return next week to the Las Vegas courthouse where he was convicted of leading an armed sports memorabilia heist to ask a judge for a new trial on the grounds that his lawyer botched his case. Simpson will testify that the Florida lawyer who collected nearly $700,000 is to blame for his armed robbery and kidnapping conviction in 2008 and his failed appeal to the Nevada Supreme Court in 2010. Simpsons testimony will offer a first look at the 65-year-old former football star since he was sent to prison more than four years ago. Simpson didnt testify at his trial or in the historic case that led to his 1995 acquittal in the slayings of his ex-wife and her friend in Los Angeles. Instead of an expensive suit and tie, Simpson will be dressed in blue Nevada Department of Corrections clothing grayer, heavier and limping a little more from long-ago knee injuries, friends say. He is now Nevada inmate No. 1027820, a far cry from his playing days when Simpson wore jersey No. 32, won the Heisman Trophy, earned the nickname The Juice in the NFL and gained induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Simpson is scheduled to be in Clark County District Court Monday for the start of a five-day hearing. He could testify Wednesday before a judge who has agreed to hear 19 separate points, mostly claiming that lawyer Yale Galanter provided such poor representation that Simpson deserves a new trial. Simpson is serving a nine-to-33year sentence that makes him first eligible for parole at age 70. Mike Tyson to star in adult cartoon show NEW YORK Adult Swim says its turning Mike Tyson into a car toon detective. The network announced a new animated series Friday called Mike Tyson Mysteries that will feature the retired boxing champ. On the show, a cartoon version of Tyson will solve wacky problems, assisted by a trusty associate: a foulmouthed pet pigeon. The network said Tyson will voice the animated character, as well as make live-action appearances. The show is targeted for next season, but no premiere date was specified.

Officials in Georgia have decided to move the boyhood home of Little Richard to spare it from a highway construction project. Macon Mayor Robert Reichert made the announcement Friday. WMAZ-TV reports that the 80-year-old singer was to receive an honorary degree on Saturday from Mercer University. Born Richard Wayne Penniman, Little Richard grew up in Macons Pleasant Hill commu nity. Thats a neighborhood that was later divided by the construction of Interstate 75. The Tutti Frutti singers boy hood home faced possible demoli tion to make room for a planned expansion of the interchange where I-75 meets Interstate 16 to Savannah. City officials said the home will be relocated to a lot near the Pleasant Hill community garden. At its new location, the house will be used as a neighborhood resource center.

The crowd Friday night included bikers with leath-er jackets, but also men in polo shirts and women in tight, white pants. Multi-colored light reflected off the dance floor off to the corner. Joseph Warren met Valdes at Club Rodeo about a year ago. According to Warren, Valdes was quiet at first, but loud once you got to know him. Warren said hell miss his broken English and his jokes. Although Valdes spoke English, if he couldnt get his point across, he would find a translator to speak for him. He was the only Spanish redneck Ive met, Warren said. Laz Riol, owner of Professional Detailing and Car Wash beside Florida Highway Patrol Troop B Headquarters on U.S. 90, said Valdes was his closest friend. Riol and Valdes met at Club Rodeo where Riol sometimes works as a disc jockey. Nichter introduced Riol to Valdes because both are Cuban. On Thursday, Riol tried to call Valdes but couldnt get through. That didnt surprise Riol. Valdes raised cattle on a farm in Georgia, according to Riol, and sometimes couldnt get a signal on his cell phone. Friday night, Nichter called Riol and asked him Albertos last name. He said Valdes, and she said he died. Riol said Valdes raised guineas in his back yard. Riol said he had about 100 birds and would sell them for $30 a pair in Miami. Valdes lived with his son at the house where he was killed, Riol said. At one time he took care of his father, an 80-year-old man in a wheelchair, but Riol said the father lives in Miami now. Riol said his wife had a good job in Georgia, where she lives.

Daina Greene, MD Marlene Summers, CNM Approximately 90 stu-dents were graduation candidates and about 75 of those students walked across the stage to receive their degrees during the ceremony. Most of the graduates received bach-elor of arts diplomas. Cox, who received a degree for teaching math to middle school students, said he looks forward to making an impact on a lot of students. He said hes already made an impact on his family and his children by showing the perseverance to complete his college education. Ive seen a big impact on my kids, he said. I know theyve suffered a bit and done without for me, but it shows them the importance of an educa-tion. Theyve striven to do good. My third-grader taught his first science class a month ago. He kept telling his teachers, I want to be like my daddy and be a teacher. Julie Turk, director of Saint Leos Lake City center, said the commence-ment exercise went swimmingly and she was proud of all the graduates. It was great to see all the families turn out. It was a full house, and thats great to see, she said. We have so many outstanding graduates this year, truly, that I think they are going to be remembered as the class that went on to do many things. Nikki H. Warrens graduation turned out to be a special event, not only for her, but also for her family. Several family members attended the graduation ceremony wearing yellow shirts with Warrens pic-ture congratulating her on graduating. It means a lot to me for my family to see me get my degree, she said, not-ing she graduated with a degree in human services administration. Theyve supported me along this way. This is one of the top five days of my life, and Im glad to be setting an example for my children, too. Lindsie Albritton wasnt surrounded by as many family members as Warren, but she also noted she was excited about graduating. Its exciting, its a big accomplishment and a relief to finally be done, she said, while taking photos with relatives. It means a lot that my family can be here and see my accomplishment.

S aid President Barack Obama to the United Nations last Sept. 25, There is no video that justifies an attack on an embassy. A fortnight after the deadly attack on Americas mis-sion in Benghazi, Libya, Obama surely knew that an al-Qaida-propelled assault, not a YouTube recording, killed U.S. ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service officer Sean Smith and for-mer Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. As Wednesdays sworn testimony by three State Department whistleblowers demonstrated, this was just one of many lies deployed by Obama and other top officials. These lies nurtured the myth that al-Qaida is on the path to defeat, as Obama claimed the day after Benghazi. With the truth conve-niently obscured beyond Nov. 6, Obama won re-election as the man who supposedly killed both Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida. In fact, only the former is dead. Appearing before the House Oversight Committee, these dip-lomats shattered Team Obamas carefully crafted post-Benghazi nar-rative. The YouTube video was a non-event in Libya, Hicks testi-fied under oath Wednesday. The only report that our mission made through every channel was that there had been an attack on our consulate. ... No protest. In the May 13 issue of Weekly Standard, Stephen Hayes carefully documents how Team Obama sani-tized the CIAs initial talking points to erase al-Qaidas fingerprints from this attack. A Sept. 14 version of this document stated, ...we do know that Islamic extremists with ties to al-Qaida participated in the attack. By the time the State Department and White House had whitewashed these talking points, another ver-sion on Sept. 15 blandly explained: There are indications that extrem-ists participated in the violent dem-onstrations. The next day, United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice appeared on five Sunday morning talk shows. Relying on these doctored talking points, she told Fox News Chris Wallace: What sparked the vio-lence was a very hateful video on the Internet. Rice added, It was a reaction to a video that had nothing to do with the United States. I was stunned, Hicks testified, when Rice spoke on TV. My jaw dropped, and I was embarrassed. Team Obama has hindered Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, as he has tried to solve the Benghazi puzzle. Hicks testified that State Department officials ordered that we were not to be personally inter-viewed by Congressman Chaffetz. He added that Clintons chief of staff, Cheryl Miller, called after he met with Chaffetz. She was very upset with me, Hicks said. She delivered a blistering critique of my management style. Perhaps because he has failed to toe the Obama line, Hicks testified that Ive been effectively demoted from deputy chief of mission to desk officer. So, why this abundance of lies and obstruction? An al-Qaida-affiliated terror group targeted an American diplomatic facility and killed four U.S. public servants, including Washingtons first ambassador to be murdered on duty since 1979. These facts completely undermined the myth that al-Qaida was in retreat since SEAL Team Six liquidated Osama bin Laden in May 2011. So, Team Obama buried these inconvenient truths beneath a sand dune of lies. OPINION Sunday, May 12, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A Lake City Reporter Serving Columbia County Since 1874 The Lake City Reporter is published with pride for residents of Columbia and surrounding coun-ties by Community Newspapers Inc. We believe strong newspapers build strong communities Newspapers get things done! Our primary goal is to publish distinguished and profitable community-oriented newspapers. This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Jim Barr, Associate Editor Sue Brannon, Controller Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman W e wonder how the election would have turned out if diplomat Gregory Hicks had testified before Congress about Benghazi last fall. His dramatic testimony to Congress on Wednesday made clear the Obama administration mishandled the crisis from the start. Once the tragic debacle occurred, officials were more concerned with damage control than the truth. Republicans have been making this accusation all along, but Hicks was the No. 2 U.S. official in Libya at the time of the attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. This is no political hatchet job. Quick decisions in frenzied situations are easy to second guess. Even so, Hicks chronicle puts the admin-istration, particularly former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in a very bad light. ... [T]here can be no disputing that Hicks and other Americans knew almost immediately that terrorists were behind the Benghazi attack. It was not a spontane-ous reaction to an anti-Muslim video.... Hicks was in Tripoli the night of Sept. 11 when Stevens was killed. He said Stevens called and told him, Greg, were under attack. Stevens and an aide would soon be dead. Two more Americans, former SEALS working as security contractors, were killed in a second attack later that night. Hicks believes that second attack could have been prevented if U.S. jets had flown over Benghazi to intimi-date the terrorists. The Pentagon says no planes were available.... More damming is Hicks testimony that he briefed Secretary Clinton the night of the killings, when it was already evident terrorists were behind the attack. Yet United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice was still blaming an anti-Islam video five days later on TV inter-view shows. Hicks told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that when he heard Rice, I was stunned. My jaw dropped, and I was embarrassed. ... Clinton later promised the father of one of the victims that the filmmaker would be arrested and pros-ecuted when she should have been fully aware the video played no role in the attacks. This looks to be a cynical and cruel deception.Indeed, Hicks testimony suggests Clintons agency scrambled quickly to keep the truth under wraps. Hicks says State Department brass ordered him not to talk with a visiting Republican congressman (Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah). When he did anyway, he was dressed down by Clintons chief of staff. Now, Hicks says, he has been essentially demoted to a desk job, something the department disputes. Clintons fingerprints look to be very close to if not all over this disaster. When questioned by Congress last January about when the administration knew terrorists were behind the attacks, Clinton disdainfully said, What difference at this point does it make? The truth always makes a difference, particularly when four Americans are killed serving their country. ... Americans may be forgiving of any misjudgments during a night of chaos and violence. They are unlikely to be as tolerant of self-serving deceptions.

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org How sweet the soundEditors note: This column was first published on May 11, 2003.I remember the day my mother led the church singing. It was awful and it was beauti-ful. Awful because she had a screechy singing voice, like Edith Bunker on TVs All in the Family. Beautiful because she had the compassion to lead the singing knowing she could not sing. The scene was a little country church, possibly Prospect or Bethel of Bony Bluff. The occasion was a funeral attended by only a dozen or so mourners. I was the only child there. In my memory, the service was short. Probably just a prayer, an obituary, a brief eulogy, and a short sermon. The minister probably reminded us that human life is like grass in time it withers; that human glory is like a flower -in time it fades. Then he probably expressed confi-dence, or hope, that the deceased was a child of God and would there-fore endure forever. The short sermon ended and the minister asked us to stand and sing a closing hymn. He announced that the deceased had made a deathbed request for Amazing Grace to be sung at his funeral. The minister then asked that someone in our small congregation begin the song. He explained that he was not a song leader and had been unable to provide one. Will someone please lead us? he asked. Nobody made a sound. Anyone at all, he said. Nobody moved. Someone just help us get started, he pleaded. Everybody remained still and quiet. There was a kind of doom in the air. We were facing a small crisis. Nobody was going to start the singing. Outside, the birds may have been singing but, inside, the minister heard only the sound he dreaded most: silence. Then it happened. Head down, my shy mother, with her high-pitched screech, started singing, all alone. Uh uh maay-zingg grace, How sweet thu-uh sound.... That did it. That got us started. One by one, others joined in until everyone was singing. No piano, no organ. Just human voices quietly echoing throughout the small church. There we stood, 12 or so tuneless souls, struggling to sing the best we could, but by the last stanza we were all united in singing the most beautiful verse in all hymndom. When weve been there ten thousand years, Bright shining as the sun, Weve no less days to sing Gods praise than when we first begun. The song ended and we all remained standing. The minister paused, then looked silently out at us with love, tenderness, and grati-tude. Maybe we were all thinking the same thing: We did it. We sang the mans song for him. We did not let him go to his grave without his song. And my shy, timid mother had led the singing to be sure we did it. As we left the little church that day, the words of that powerful, magnificent hymn rang in my young soul. Amazing grace! The over-whelming wonder of Gods loving mercy toward human kind. How sweet the sound! So true. But that day I had also discovered another might sweet sound: My mothers singing voice. The memory would forever more be sweet music to my ears. My mother, Ida Belle English Williams. Born on a remote farm near Fargo, Georgia, and, equipped with just a third grade educa-tion, she endured an early life of incredible hardship but she always retained a sweetness of spirit and a love of people. Life span: 78 years, eight months, 26 days. Of all those days we shared, the one I remember best is the day she led the church singing. In memo-riam, Happy Mothers Day, Mama.

He was sent to Paris Island where he met his drill master and mentor, Corpo-ral Doyle. He was assigned to the USS Wilkes-Barre, and was sent to Japan, where he engaged in various campaigns. One cam-paign, Mr. Markham and two of his fellow Marines were knocked unconscious by a nearby bomb.

By CHRISTOPHER SHUMAKER Special to the Reporter L ake City resident Trineshia Carter said she works hard to make a better life for her and her two children but finds she struggles financially, living pay check to paycheck. The local certified nursing assistant said its difficult to pay her monthly bills as well as find affordable housing that fits her familys size. The single mother currently lives in an overcrowded two-bedroom apartment with 9-year-old Kyndrea and 5-year-old Trishawn, with whom she shares a bed room. The government says I make too much money to receive any assistance, Carter said. It is very hard. I had my daughter when I was young. I still gradu ated high school, though, and went to college to get my CNA certificate. Then, I had my son. Its really, really hard to live month to month without some help. Carter said things are looking up for her though. She recently qualified to receive a Habitat for Humanity home. Because the organization relies strictly on donations from the local community, she is waiting for Habitat for Humanity Lake City/Columbia County Inc. to receive enough money to start building her threebedroom, two-bath house. The local nonprofit is teaming up with Papa Johns Pizza to end poverty housing and help families like Carters. You can help, too. Lake City Papa Johns is donating 10 percent of its online profits each month to Habitat. Customers must go to papajohns.com, select the Lake City location and enter the promotional code LCHabitat for the organization to receive donations. In return, people placing online orders using the code will receive a 15 percent discount off their total purchase. Local Habitat for Humanity chairman George Burnham said he hopes this partnership brings awareness to others about the organization while offering a benefit to Papa Johns customers. Monetary donations will help offer decent, affordable housing for lowincome families, Burnham said. I believe these homes and what Habitat does for families offer this community hope and opportunity for future genera tions. The Christian nonprofit builds low-cost housing for families in need. Families must be able to repay a no-interest mort gage loan, have acceptable credit and a stable income. Once they qualify, a part ner family must complete 60 hours of community service, as well as hundreds of hours in sweat equity helping build their home. They also must prove the house they are currently living in is in substandard condition or too small for their familys size. Its a hand up, Burnham said, not a hand out. Paul Hakken, the local Papa Johns franchise owner, said he appreciates the work Habitat does for this area and is more than happy to help. I have a strong charitable impulse, Hakken said. My mother was a social worker at a hospital. I like to do things that I believe would have made her proud of me. I have been blessed with a fortunate life thus far. When I see others suffering, I think, there but for the grace of God go I. Carter said fundraisers like these will help see that her dreams of being a firsttime homeowner come true. Please, please, please put your dona tions in, eat pizza and help us, Carter said, so I can continue to build a better life for my family. Burnham said it costs about $40,000 to build a Habitat home. He said the organi zations goal is to build at least one home in the county each year. The organiza tion finished building its fifth home in July 2012 and hopes to start its next one in early summer. Carter met the criteria to become a partner family with the local Habitat chapter earlier this year and has already completed more than 20 of her com munity service hours. She says she is thankful for what Habitat does for fami lies who just want a better life for their children, as well as themselves. They really have helped me a lot, Carter said. Without them, I would not be able to do it on my own actually get a nice place, you know, for what I could afford. Its something I can leave my kids once Im gone. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY MAY 12, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 6A Words cannot express the love we have for you.

By TONY BRITT email@example.com Close to 60 veterans or their qualifying spouses attended the Paychecks for Patriots 2013 Veterans Hiring Fair at American Legion Post 57 on Friday. The event, which lasted for about five hours, drew 10 to 12 employers. Dennis Morse, Dollar General human resources representative, attended the job fair looking to offer vet erans employment. Its a little bit on the slow side, but the people coming in bring good skill sets, he said. Veterans are well trained in handling difficult situations, planning, orga nizing and they are mission oriented. We can take those same qualities and bring them into management and hourly positions in our stores. Its easy to teach them how to operate retail. The skill set they possess is what makes the difference for us. George Upshaw, an Army veteran, said he thought the job fair was exciting. There are quite a few companies here, he said. I think this is pretty good for the veterans. Veterans do a lot for the country, and I think that when they are in need, the country should step up for them. Denise Wynne, Florida Crown Workforce Board lead employer services rep resentative, said the hiring fair was a big success. I spoke with some of the employers and weve had some great feedback about how their interviews went and some great referral information, she said. I think overall the event was a great success. Its important to have an event like this to show appreciation to veterans for the service that they do, she added. Its also impor tant for our employers because they like to have veteran employees because of their discipline, work ethic and the skills theyve learned in the military.

By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comElyse Hancock smiled, pizza sauce smeared across her cheek as she chatted with classmates in MaryWoodbridges Eastside Elementary School kindergarten class during a Friday afternoon pizza party in her honor. The 5-year-old just finished a two-year battle with leu-kemia. Inspired by Elyse, the class raised the most money for Pennies for Patients, a program cre-ated by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. They raised $359 the high-est amount of any class at the elementary school. For their hard work, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society gave the class a gift card to Dominos Pizza. They took it to heart about raising the money, said volunteer and parent Angie Oglesby. They felt like they were raising it for her. Her son Landon, with help from his mom, filled his box five times. Oglesby thought they would fill it up once, and their fundraising would be over, but the box kept coming home again. Woodbridge, Elyses teacher, said Elyse has been open with the class about her struggles with cancer. Before the fund-raiser, the class learned about leukemia and why it was important to donate to the cause. We just wanted to raise money to help kids like Elyse get well and stay well, she said. Woodbridge taught Elyses older sister, Audrey, and followed the 5-year-olds struggles through updates from Audrey. Not long after Elyses diagno-ses, Woodbridges hus-band learned he also had leukemia. Kristy Hancock, Elyses mother, reached out to her. I feel a little connected to them, Woodbridge said. Elyse was excited for her port, or her buddy as the doctors named it, to finally come out two weeks ago. Officially, she finished all of her chemotherapy in October 2012, but the doc-tors decided to leave the port in to be safe. First diagnosed with the cancer when she was 2, Elyse faced 28 months of treatment. It included che-motherapy, spinal taps and a drug regimen. The bad part is there is no reason for it, said Kristy Hancock. They had no way to determine how it happened. Its just one cell that decides its not going to make blood anymore. ... I dont smoke, I took my prenatal vitamins. We did everything right, but she still got cancer. Kristy Hancock and her husband, Taylor Hancock, worked hard to ensure Elyse lived a normal life. They enrolled her in pre-kindergarten and filed a wish with the Make-A-Wish Foundation for a trip to Disney World. The wish was granted, and Elyse traveled to Orlando to meet all the Disney princesses. For the most part, weve tried to get her in school, doing normal things, Kristy said. She lost her hair again, and I was a little worried because she was in kindergarten ... but for the most part, her [classmates] have been sweet. In class. Elyse sits next to Melanie Gordon, whose mother brought in Strawberry Shortcake cupcakes and a present for Elyse on Friday to cel-ebrate the next chapter in her battle with leukemia. According to Melanie, Elyse has been very brave. Landon even said the entire class has become best friends. Shes handled treatments like a superhero, Kristy Hancock said. But the fight isnt over. Now the family has to travel monthly to the oncologist to ensure the cancer stays in remission, and Elyse has to see a cardiologist about her enlarged heart. Because treatments lead to missed school days, Kristy Hancock said, Woodbridge has been awe-some. The schools been really good to us, Taylor Hancock said. But I dont think it will ever end. Theres always going to be something to war with, always something to look out for, but weve made it this far. Nothing else to do but keep going, he said.

By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comColumbia County fifthgraders plan to test their brain power at the annual Kiwanis Battle of the Brains at 6:30 p.m. Monday in the Columbia County School Board Administrative Complex auditorium. Ten schools, including Ephiphany Catholic School, will compete, each sending a team of four fifth-grade students and an alternate to represent their school. The Lake City Kiwanis Club sponsors the event, and will provide the judges for the competi-tion. Questions will focus on all subject areas, instead of just the math-related problems fourth-grad-ers puzzled over at the annual Math Bee recently. The bank of questions is based on Sunshine State Standards and classroom curriculums. All participant get trophies for their hard work, said Dorothy Spradley, mar-keting coordinator for the Columbia County School District. The winning team is awarded the first-place trophy and the travel-ing Battle of the Brains trophy to display at their school until next years competition. Last years winner was Pinemount Elementary. We usually have a packed audience, Spradley said. A lot of work goes into this. The parents get excited because its really a good competition for their kids. It challenges their thinking and teamwork skills. The family-friendly event is free to the public. Each student wears a Tshirt designed specifically for his or her school. The shirt colors vary by team. Battle of the Brains is back 15,000 square feet of retail space. Interior demolition of the space began Thursday. Load-bearing walls are being torn down and recon-figured to provide space for the malls newest addition. Regular construction will start taking place this summer, and we hope to turn over the space to Michaels in September, Hull said. We can prob-ably expect them to open sometime this fall. We are really thrilled that Michaels will be join-ing us, Hull continued. They have a really strong record of success, and were just so thrilled that such a strong national tenant is going to join the existing lineup of retailers that we already have at the Lake City Mall. Were very excited. Hull said Michaels is the largest specialty retailer of arts, crafts, framing, floral, wall decor, scrap-booking and more in the country. Hull said she is uncertain how many people will be employed at Michaels. Michaels wont be the only change for the mall. We are going to be moving the mall office and jani-torial space to accommo-date Michaels, Hull said. Michaels will be taking more than one bay at the mall. So, to accommodate all the space that Michaels needs, well be moving the mall office to the other end of the mall, at the back of the mall. Other renovations will take place on the interior and exterior of the mall, such as new rest rooms. The interior mall renovations include installation of new carpet in the commons area, fresh paint, pendant lighting and higher ceilings at various locations. Well also be putting up walls (sheet rock) over some of the vacant sites that we still have ..., Hull said. Well be installing large, historical photo-graphs over those spaces. Shoppers will no longer see a vacant setting. Theyll see a nice wall with beauti-ful, historical photographs that reflect Lake Citys history. Minor exterior improvements will include new entrance features, land-scaping and parking. The renovation work is expected to begin in mid-June and be completed by early fall, hopefully by October. The renovations will not impact mall hours. We want to enhance the shopping experience for our customers, Hull said, noting the last reno-vations took place about 15 years ago when Hull Storey Gibson purchased the mall. Hull said the owners try to bring popular national tenants like T.J. Maxx, Kay Jewelers and now Michaels to the mall. We want the interior and exterior, the look and feel of the mall, to reflect that potential and the respect we have for the property, she said. Were excited for what the Lake City Mall has to offer the community. Hull did not give a specific dollar amount for the cost of the renovations. I dont want to talk specific dollar amounts, but we are putting in a signifi-cant investment, both in time and money, into the property, she said.

By BRANDON FINLEY email@example.com VERO BEACH Columbia Highs chance to win its first state champion ship in softball will have to wait until 9:30 a.m. today, as Saturdays final was delayed in the fourth inning due to weather. The Lady Tigers were off to a hot start against Pembroke Pines Charter School before lightning delayed the game. Columbia (27-4) took at 2-0 lead in the first inning when Tatum Morgan hit a shot down the first-base line to score Lacey King, who reached on a walk, and Kayli Kvistad, who had a base hit. Columbia added a third run in the second inning after Lauren Eaker and Brittney Morgan had base hits. Kvistad walked to load the bases and Tatum Morgan delivered an infield hit to score Eaker for the 3-0 lead. Being the visitor has really given us some moti vation to get on the board first and let the other team play catch-up, CHS head coach Jimmy Williams said. They have four innings to get four and we want to hold serve. Erin Anderson held Pembroke Pines without a hit in the first three innings while striking out three bat ters and walking two. Williams said Anderson will go back to the mound when the game resumes, but both her and Ashley Shoup are available. Erin will be fresh again and she might be able to give us a few more innings, Williams said. She was already having a good out ing. They only had one run ner at second so far. Despite the delay, Williams feels good about the Lady Tigers chances when play resumes. I feel good about our chance, Williams said. Id rather be up three than down three. I do feel like we had momentum and the pitcher frazzled. Hopefully we have 12 outs in us. I feel good about it.

7-1 win against Lakewood Ranch High on Friday to advance to the champion-ship game. A combined pitching performance from Shoup and Anderson shut down the Lady Jaguars, as Lakewood Ranchs only run came as the result of errors in the bottom of the first inning. Shoup picked up the win with 3 23 innings pitched with three hits. Anderson closed out the game with 3 13 innings, two hits and struck out one batter. We really put the pressure on them in the first inning and then they didnt hit a ball out of the infield, Williams said. The girls were on a mission. The bats also seemed to be on a mission early and often. Columbia jumped out to a 3-0 lead and never looked back. After a walk by Brandy Morgan and a hit by Kvistad, Tatum Morgan hit a double down the first-base line to score both runners. Caleigh McCauley followed with a single to score Tatum Morgan and the Lady Tigers had put Lakewood Ranch in an early hole. All day long, the girls kept telling me they were going to get three runs in the first inning, Williams said. They wanted to put the pressure on them. Im not super surprised that we were able to get the big hits and McCauley has just been awesome. Columbia broke the game open in the fifth inning. Tatum Morgans infield hit scored Brittney Morgan to make it 4-1 and McCauley came through in the clutch again to clear the bases with a double. King, Kvistad and Tatum Morgan all scored on the double to center field for the 7-1 final. It was 4-1 at the time and I knew we could put the game away, McCauley said. In the last few weeks Ive got my confidence back. Weve talked about playing for a state cham-pionship all season and we felt like we could make it happen. Its been our mission going back to when we lost to Niceville in the playoffs when I was a freshman.

By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressPONTE VEDRA BEACH A rift between Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia attracted all the attention on a stormy day at Sawgrass. Swedish rookie David Lingmerth quietly went about his business and wound up atop the leaderboard Saturday in The Players Championship. Lingmerth finished a wild day with an 8-foot eagle putt on the par-5 16th and a 10-foot birdie on the island-green 17th to reach 12-under par when the third round was suspended because of darkness. It was delayed nearly two hours because of threatening storms. Woods, Garcia and Henrik Stenson all former Players champions were two shots behind. Eight players have to return today to complete the round. The Woods-Garcia relationship already was frosty, and an incident on the par-5 second hole was sure to add another layer of chill. Garcia was hitting his second shot from the fairway when he was disrupted by a burst of cheers from the large crowd gath-ered around Woods in the trees. Garcia snapped his head over to the left and glared. The cheer was for Woods taking a fairway metal from his bag, a risky shot because he had only a 15-foot gap to escape the woods. During the storm delay, Garcia suggested in a television interview that Woods was the instigator. Well, obviously Tiger was on the left and it was my shot to hit, Garcia said. He moved all of the crowd that he needed to move. I waited for that. I wouldnt say that he didnt see that I was ready, but you do have a feel when the other guy is going to hit and right as I was in the top of the back-swing, I think he must have pulled like a 5-wood or a 3-wood and obviously every-body started screaming. So that didnt help very much. Woods was aware of the comments and said Garcia didnt have his facts straight. The marshals, they told me he already hit, so I pulled a club and was getting ready to play my shot, Woods said. And then I hear his comments afterwards, and not real surprising that hes complaining about something. Asked if they talked it over when play resumed, Woods replied, We didnt do a lot of talking. Meanwhile, The Players Championship was shaping up to be quite a finish. Lingmerth poured in par putts along the back nine to stay around the leaders, and then he raced by them with his eagle-birdie finish. He returns today to play the 18th hole. By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comAfter a week and a half of work, Columbia High football fans got a peek at the new product. Columbias Gold squad beat the Purple squad, 14-7, in the annual spring game at Tiger Stadium on Friday. The players were suited up for the Purple & Gold, but it was a continuation of what began on May 1. First and foremost we are looking for competitive practices, CHS head coach Brian Allen said. We have a couple of positions with guys pushing each other. We want to see if whoever is first can hold on with the guy behind pushing hard. Finding a quarterback is the main task, and Austin Williams, Nathan Taylor and Jake Thomas took snaps under center. Williams was 1-of-6 passing for 19 yards with an interception; Taylor was 2 of 5 for 12 yards; Thomas completed his only throw for eight yards. Alex Weber had a catch good for 19 yards. Jesse Nolan, Akeem Williams and Terrivio Williams also had receptions. We want somebody to emerge at quarterback, Allen said. Thats what were looking for. Were young at quarterback and we have to do a better job managing the game. We have to do a better job with ball security to not lose the game. Quarterback is the most important posi-tion on the field and we are going to need that. Running backs Lonnie Underwood (9 rushes-32 yards), Earl Frames (5-36) and Darian Dallas (15-107) got the majority of carries. Dallas scored one of the touchdowns for the Gold and set up a sneak by Taylor for the other TD. That was a bright note to see our running game coming around, Allen said. Thats our bread and butter. We run the ball and play defense and then take our shots. Defensive coordinator Dennis Dotson said his side starts with the basics. The first things we instill in a kid are good effort and good execution, Dotson said. Were always preaching if you do those two things, you will always be in a position to win the football game defensively. We did a pretty good job of that tonight. Columbias two defenses allowed a combined 10 first downs with a couple com-ing on penalties. The Tigers recorded three sacks and Rakeem Battle had an inter-ception for the Gold. The Purples touchdown came on a 43-yard fumble return by Zedrick Woods. Dotson pointed out that the only touchdown in the junior varsity game came on defense (a long fumble return by Derontae Jordan late in the game). We had a lot of 2-3 year starters that graduated and finding those backups is a goal in the spring, Dotson said. We have a couple of kids stepping up, but its a long road ahead. Thats what summer is for. I was real satisfied with what I saw tonight. The Tigers will have another four days of prac-tice under their belts before traveling to Fort White High for the spring game at 7 p.m. May 17. You expect not to see mistakes in practice and we should have things cleaned up by next week, Allen said. We are looking forward to it.

By TONY BRITT email@example.com O ne of the least-noticed groups in the local workforce is teenagers with jobs. Traditionally the groups numbers increase when the school year ends and high school graduations take place often resulting in an increase in the num ber of people seeking jobs for the summer. While the US and the state of Florida are see ing employment figures that are looking more promising each month, the unfortunate truth of the matter is that ... we dont see a large impact on the employment rate as students graduate from high school, said Denise Wynne, Florida Crown Workforce Board Lead Employer Services Representative. Many of our students are choosing to pursue a post-second ary education, and we are happy to partner with our secondary and postsecondary institutions to help ensure the success of these graduates. Linda Moses, teacher, career technical education chairperson at Columbia High School, and coordina tor of cooperative business education program, said Columbia High School offers programs that help students gain employment skills and often employ ment opportunities with local businesses. Moses, along with Tony L. Robinson, coordinates Columbia High Schools Guided Work Learning, Diversified Cooperative Training, On The Job Training programs where students go to school, work and are paid. Columbia High School has 334 students that participate in the Guided Work Learning program and Diversified Training work program. All the students have jobs in the community, she said, noting the stu dents are juniors and seniors. We have restau rant positions, fast food positions, clerical and child care positions. We have the gamut of all positions. Joshua Crapps, an attorney at the Darby & Peele law firm, said Columbia High School senior Michael Wyche has done a variety of clerical tasks that benefited the firm since hes been there. Crapps said there are ben efits for the students as well as employers through the program. I think having a job helps them grow their self confidence by being in a business environment and interacting with people in an established relationship with people in the commu nity so when they get out of high school theyll be able to get a job, he said. Brandi Roberts, Erkinger Construction Group vice president, said having CHS student Erica Gall as an employee helps her have time to do other work-related tasks. It helps me be able to actually get my job done when Erica is here to help me keep the filing and some of the other admin istration work in order, so I can work with customers directly, Roberts said. Students can get a job when they are 16 years old and their employment hours are based on state and federal child labor laws. Our program helps the students maintain employ ment after they graduate, said Moses, whose motto is: Earn While You Learn. It helps them with college expenses and plus it gives them training and they learn work ethics about whats involved in keeping and maintaining a job and being successful in life. Moses said she has noticed an increase in the number of students looking for employment opportunities, especially summer jobs, now that end of the school year is approaching. She said she gives the students applications from local employers as well as their web sites where they can apply and try to gain summer employment. I think the teenage employment market is very prominent in the local job market and workforce, Moses said. I think its a viable entity in various business here in the county. We greatly appreciate the local businesses because the students are able to earn money and credits for working. Because they have jobs they are able to earn credits that help them with their graduation requirements. Moses said most stu dents seek employment for a variety of reasons. Some of our students are having to pay part of their expenses, she said. Some students need the jobs to get credits for graduation. Wynne said the employ ment experience students gain while in high school is beneficial to their futures. Students graduate from CHS with many of the cer tifications that employers are seeking through the various CTE programs, she said. They have also had the benefit of practical application of these skills in many cases, through the various learning labs, such as the Global Logistics Academy which has an operational ware house on-site and allows students to gain forklift experience and certifica tion, as well as experience in shipping, receiving and distribution. These programs are wonderful as a springboard to postsecondary education, and I personally know several young people who have received their A.S. degree prior to graduating from high school as a result of these programs. There is a direct correlation between the amount of education a person receives and the wages they will earn over the course of their life. 1CBIZ FRONT Lake City Reporter 1CBIZ FRONT Week of May 12-18, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section C Columbia, Inc.

You have essentially bet that the stock will top $61 per share $55 plus $6 by August. Options are enticing because of the leverage they offer. With $1,000, you can only buy 20 shares of a $50 stock. Alternatively, that $1,000 could buy many options tied to hundreds of shares of stock. With options, if things dont go your way in a short time frame, the options will expire worthless. Most options expire unexercised and worthless. If youre sure that BULBZ stock will rise, youre probably best off buying its stock. Then, if it doesnt behave as you expected in the near term, you can either sell the shares or hang on patiently. Options are not for beginning investors, and many advanced investors steer clear, too.

Its stock has averaged annual gains of more than 40 percent over the past decade, but has slid more than 15 percent over the past year. The drop is partly due to questions being raised about its machines efficacy via some lawsuits and an FDA investiga-tion. Still, some see the companys potential outweighing its risks. The potential is great, as more hospitals buy robots and then keep buying accessories and sup-plies needed for each procedure, along with service contracts for the machines. Thats welcome, repeat-ing revenue, on top of a typical sales price of more than a million dollars apiece for Intuitives da Vinci robots. Meanwhile, the number of procedures performed increased by 18 percent last quarter, over year-ago levels, and revenue and earnings have been growing by more than 20 percent annually, on average, over the past five years. Intuitive Surgical can also grow through new procedures such as gallbladder removals, and also via international sales. Its stock seems reasonably or attractively priced, too, given its growth rates.

I later learned that the company had overstated its earnings, and discovered that the stocks ticker symbol had an E appended to it. Is that for extinct, eliminated, exit or Ebola? W.Z., Hartford, Conn. The Fool Responds: An E is a red flag, but not necessarily an Ebola-level emergency. When a company listed on the Nasdaq stock market is delinquent in fil-ing one or more required reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), it gets an E tacked to the end of its symbol. In such cases, dig deeper to get a sense of whether theres a tempo-rary or permanent problem. A bigger red flag is a Q suffix, which means the company is involved in bankruptcy proceed-ings. This is almost always very bad news for investors, since companies emerging from bankruptcy protec-tion have typically been reorganized, with their previous stock shares essentially canceled and worthless.Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, MAY 12, 2013 3C3CClassIRS targeted conservative groupsBy STEPHEN OHLEMACHERAssociated PressWASHINGTON The Internal Revenue Service inappropriately flagged conserva-tive political groups for additional reviews during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status, a top IRS official said Friday. Organizations were singled out because they included the words tea party or patriot in their applications for tax-exempt status, said Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt groups. In some cases, groups were asked for their list of donors, which violates IRS policy in most cases, she said. That was wrong. That was absolutely incorrect, it was insensitive and it was inappropriate. Thats not how we go about selecting cases for further review, Lerner said at a conference sponsored by the American Bar Association. The IRS would like to apologize for that, she added. Lerner said the practice was initiated by low-level workers in Cincinnati and was not motivated by political bias. After her talk, she told The AP that no high level IRS officials knew about the practice. Agency officials found out about the practice last year and moved to correct it, the IRS said in a statement. The statement did not specify when officials found out. About 75 groups were inappropriately targeted. None had their tax-exempt status revoked, Lerner said. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky called on the White House to investigate. Todays acknowledgement by the Obama administration that the IRS did in fact target conservative groups in the heat of last years national election is not enough, McConnell said. I call on the White House to conduct a transparent, government-wide review aimed at assuring the American people that these thug-gish practices are not under way at the IRS or elsewhere in the administration against anyone, regardless of their politi-cal views. Many conservative groups complained during the election that they were being harassed by the IRS. They accused the agency of frustrating their attempts to become tax exempt by sending them lengthy, intrusive questionnaires. The forms, which the groups made available at the time, sought information about group members political activities, including details of their postings on social networking websites and about family members. Certain tax-exempt charitable groups can conduct political activities but it can-not be their primary activity. IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman told Congress in March 2012 that the IRS was not targeting groups based on their political views. Theres absolutely no targeting. This is the kind of back and forth that happens to people who apply for tax-exempt status, Shulman told a House Ways and Means subcommittee. Shulman was appointed by President George W. Bush. His 6-year term ended in November. President Barack Obama has yet to nominate a successor. The agency is now being run by acting Commissioner Steven Miller. The Ways and Means Committee has persistently pushed the IRS to explain why it appeared to be unfairly targeting some political groups over others a charge they repeatedly denied, said Rep. Charles Boustany, R-La., chairman of the Ways and Means oversight subcommittee. The IRSs too little too late response is unacceptable, and I will continue to work to ensure there are protections in place so no American, regardless of political affilia-tion, has their right to free speech threat-ened by the IRS, Boustany said. Tea Party groups were livid on Friday.I dont think theres any question we were unfairly targeted, said Tom Zawistowski, who until recently was presi-dent of the Ohio Liberty Coalition, an alli-ance of tea party groups in the state. Zawistowskis group was among many conservative organizations that battled the IRS over what they saw as its discrimina-tory treatment of their effort to gain non-profit status. The group first applied for non-profit status in June 2009, and it was finally granted on Dec. 7, 2012, he said one month after Election Day. During the 2012 election, many tea party groups applied for tax-exempt status under section 501 (c) (4) of the federal tax code, which grants tax-exempt status to social welfare groups. Unlike other charitable groups, these organizations are allowed to participate in political activities but their primary activity must be social welfare. That determination is up to the IRS.Lerner said the number of groups filing for this tax-exempt status more than doubled from 2010 to 2012, to more than 3,400. To handle the influx, the IRS cen-tralized its review of these applications in an office in Cincinnati. Lerner said this was done to develop expertise among staffers and consistency in their reviews. As part of the review, staffers look for signs that groups are participating in political activity. If so, IRS agents take a closer look to make sure that politics isnt the groups primary activity, Lerner said. As part of this process, agents in Cincinnati came up with a list of things to look for in an application. As part of the list, they included the words, tea party and patriot, Lerner said. Its the line people that did it without talking to managers, Lerner. Theyre IRS workers, theyre revenue agents. In all, about 300 groups were singled out for additional review, Lerner said. Of those, about a quarter were singled out because they had tea party or patriot somewhere in their applications. The IRS statement said that once applications were chosen for review, they all received the same, even-handed treat-ment. Lerner said 150 of the cases have been closed and no group had its tax-exempt status revoked, though some withdrew their applications. Mistakes were made initially, but they were in no way due to any political or parti-san rationale, the IRS said in a statement. We fixed the situation last year and have made significant progress in moving the centralized cases through our system. Marcus S. Owens, who spent a decade leading the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt organizations, said Friday that it made sense that the problem arose among workers in Cincinnati because the agency really has delegated a lot of authority to local offices to make decisions about han-dling their workload. But Tea Party groups werent buying the idea that the decision to target them was solely the responsibility of low-level IRS workers. It is suspicious that the activity of these low-level workers was unknown to IRS leadership at the time it occurred, said Jenny Beth Martin, national coordinator for Tea Party Patriots, which describes itself as the nations largest tea party organization. President Obama must also apologize for his administration ignoring repeated complaints by these broad grass-roots organizations of harassment by the IRS in 2012, and make concrete and trans-parent steps today to ensure this never happens again. Associated Press reporters Alan Fram and Steve Peoples in Boston contributed to this report. Entitlements growth is a boon to seniorsBy CHARLES BABINGTONAssociated PressWASHINGTON With Congress increasingly unable to resolve bud-get disputes, federal pro-grams on automatic pilot are consuming ever larger amounts of government resources. The trend helps older Americans, who receive the bulk of Social Security and Medicare benefits, at the expense of younger people. This generational shift draws modest public debate. But it alarms some policy advocates, who say the United States is reduc-ing vital investments in the future. Because Democrats and Republicans cant reach a grand bargain on deficit spending with mutually accepted spending cuts and revenue hikes Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid keep growing, largely untouched. Steady expansions of these non-discretionary entitlement programs require no con-gressional action, so they flourish in times of grid-lock. Meanwhile, many discretionary programs are suf-fering under Washingtons decision-by-indecision hab-its, in which lawmakers lock themselves into ques-tionable actions because they cant agree on alterna-tives. The latest example is $80 billion in automatic budget cuts, which largely spare Medicare and Social Security. Growth in these costly but popular pro-grams is virtually impos-sible to curb without bipar-tisan agreements. Instead, the spending cuts are hitting the mili-tary and many domestic programs that benefit younger Americans. They include early education ini-tiatives such as Head Start, and scientific and medical research. This shift in public resources is dramatic and growing. While 14 cents of every federal dollar not going to interest was spent on entitlement programs in 1962, the amount is 47 cents today, and it will reach 61 cents by 2030, according to an analysis of government data by Third Way, a centrist-Democratic think tank. Entitlements are squeezing out public investments in education, infrastructure, research and other fields that have nurtured future prosperity, the study said. The only way for Democrats to save progressive priorities like NASA, highway funding and clean energy research is to reform entitlements. But Democrats wont consider entitlement cuts until Republicans agree to increase taxes for the rich. And Republicans, who con-trol the House, refuse to do that. The Third Way study was written 10 months ago. Since then, partisan clashes that produced the fiscal cliff and the auto-matic cuts have made mat-ters even worse, said the groups vice president, Jim Kessler. The foot is on the accelerator with entitlement programs, and its on the brakes on investments, Kessler said. And this country needs more invest-ments. Society must care for the elderly and needy, Kessler said, but we cant do that at the expense of young people and new ideas. With baby boomers retiring in huge numbers, total benefits for seniors are bound to grow. But over the course of decades, Medicare and Social Security spending general-ly grow faster than inflation, per beneficiary, Kessler said. That squeezes nearly everything else. According to White House budget records, dis-cretionary spending com-prised two-thirds of total federal outlays in 1968 and mandatory spending made up 27.5 percent. The esti-mate for 2018 has those shares nearly reversed: discretionary programs will consume 27.5 percent of total federal spending, mandatory programs will consume 62 percent and interest on the debt will take about 10 percent. Costs linked to the retirement of the baby boom generation, the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service said in a recent report, are a major cause of rising mandatory spending. The current trajectory of federal health care spending, the report said, appears unsustain-able and could place heavy fiscal burdens on younger generations and genera-tions not yet born. Congress set the sequester cuts into motion as a self-imposed prod in 2011, when the parties dead-locked on how to address deficit spending. The across-the-board cuts were supposed to be so distaste-ful that both parties would reach a budgetary compro-mise to avoid them. It didnt happen, and the cuts began taking effect last March. They include a $1.6 billion reduction in the $30 bil-lion budget for the National Institutes of Health, the worlds largest supporter of biomedical research. NIH Director Francis Collins said the cuts will delay the start of hundreds of medi-cal research projects. Those paying the price, Collins said, are ultimately patients and families who are counting on us to find those next promising cures and treatments. Robert Blendon of the Harvard School of Public Health said medi-cal research is popular. He said Congress eventually may find targeted ways to fund it while continuing to cut funds for other impor-tant types of research. The bigger problem, Blendon said, is the grid-lock caused by congressio-nal Republicans refusal to raise taxes and Democrats refusal to consider entitle-ment changes without new revenues. This is not going to be solved before the 2014 elec-tions, Blendon said, when all 435 House seats and a third of the Senate seats will be on the ballot.

D M D M The most experienced provider of D M in North Central Florida A day without football By AMANDA WILLIAMSON firstname.lastname@example.org F or sports mom Margie Kluess, Mothers Day will be free of football. As the president of the Fort White Quarterback Club and mother of two football players, not many of her days go by that dont include some aspect of the sport. She cant count the number of uni forms washed, snacks prepared or miles traveled back and forth to practice. I do football a lot. All the time, she said. If youd asked me 20 years ago if I was going to know so much about football, I would have said no. But now its a part of our lives. Its our con versation at the dinner table. Its important to me that I can be a part of my kids lives. Her family already has Mothers Day planned out, sans football. The day will start with breakfast in bed for mom bacon, scrambled eggs, fried potatoes and then her hus band, Scott Kluess, plans to do the laundry while she enjoys a book. Both of her sons plan to tell their mom how much they love her. But football season is around the corner, and the Kluess fam ily seems excited. According to Margie Kluess, her 17-year-old son, A.J., and the Fort White High School varsity team are going to have a great year. The junior class has grown up togeth er, playing side by side on the field since they were 9. For Margie Kluess, football season means more than it does to the average sideline mom, coaching and coaxing her boys from the stands. Football season involves fundraisers, selling tick ets, working concession stands, advising parents, organizing bake sales and more. Now, her job is to ensure everything gets done and the booster club raises enough funds to cover each play er on the middle school, junior varsity and varsity teams. But she still has time to make it to every game or at least send another member of the family. If she isnt there, her husband Scott Kluess is. If he cant make it, one of the grandparents shows up. Now, Margie Kluess finds herself at the school nearly four days a week. Her youngest son, Robert, plays his games on Tuesdays, and A.J.s games are on Fridays. She works Thursdays at the junior varsity games, and meets on Monday at the school with the Quarterback Club. The schedule means she doesnt have to miss any games the way she had to when her boys played on the same night, but she said it also means shes always at the school. She even joked that she plans to set up a cot. Theres a lot of moms out there like me, a lot of dads out there doing the same thing, she said. We like what the sports have done for our kids. A.J. Kluess and his mother have developed communication about his football games, so JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Margie Klues is seen with her older son, A.J., after football practice on Wednesday. She makes time to attend every football game as well as bal ance household duties with fundraising for the football team. Fort White mother puts heart and soul into sons endeavors.

regular sandwich, such as turkey, ham, roast beef or egg salad on fresh bread, they have some of the most unique sandwich combinations around. MKs all time favorite is the Ultimate Turkey, featuring turkey breast, cheddar cheese, mush-rooms, tomato, onion, lettuce, mayo and topped with their absolutely deli-cious parmesan dressing. Served hot on pumper-nickel rye bread, this is one you dont want to miss. A couple of others include: The Grecian Ham and Cheese Bake. Loaded with ham and black olives teamed up with mild peppers, onions, tomato, mayo and parmesan dressing, it too is served hot on pumpernickel. The Spin is served on grilled muffaletta bread with a delightful combi-nation of fresh spinach, cheddar cheese, sliced toasted almonds, mush-rooms, sauted onions, parmesan cheese, and sun dried tomatoes. The Vegetarian Primo is beautifully layered and loaded with crisp veggies and cheeses, including carrots, celery, cucumbers, bell peppers, cheddar cheese, onions, mushrooms, Swiss cheese, tomatoes, lettuce provolone cheese and sprouts and their famous parmesan dressing. Hopkins salad choices are just as interesting and delicious. We cant leave without getting a to go Chicken Tetrazzini salad. This creation combines their delicious cashew chicken salad with lin-guine, mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, fresh shred-ded lettuce, tomatoes, onion and green peppers, served with the parmesan dressing! Their Mediterranean Tuna Salad is a delightful combo of fresh lettuce, white beans, black olives, feta cheese, tuna, onion, tomatoes and bell pep-pers. This one is served with a light olive oil and lemon dressing, but of course you can always ask for their parmesan dress-ing. Do you recognize a recurring theme? Their parmesan dressing is the bomb and cant be duplicated no matter how much Mary Kay tries! While their sandwiches and salads are certainly enough to fill you up, we implore you to try their potato salad. Like nothing weve ever had before, this hodgepodge of potatoes, carrots, peas, chopped dill pickles and some other veggies, along with a very light oil dress-ing is truly a unique culi-nary creation. When you order, dont go for a standard foun-tain drink but choose their minty iced tea. Its refreshing change of pace, but it can be a bit minty for some tastes. They also have homemade soups, but we have to be honest, weve never tried them. Still, we are sure they are just as good as their other offerings. If you save room for something sweet, you always have the Heath or Congo bars as a delicious options. They change up their cakes daily, so you never know whats going to be available, but rest assured, every cake is absolutely fresh, moist and mouth watering! The Blueberry Sour Cream three-layer cake with cream cheese frosting and the Humming Bird Cake are two favorites. If you have a special day coming up, order a whole one for your friends or loved ones to enjoy too! They are very, very busy during lunch hour, so if you are in a hurry, call in ahead of time to eat in or take out.

Special events are being held throughout Florida this year to celebrate Floridas rich history and culture. Viva Florida 500 is a statewide initiative of the Florida Department of State to commemorate 500 years of Floridas diverse development, and public libraries have been given a major role in the celebra-tion. For more information on Viva Florida 500 go to www.vivaflorida.org. Each of Floridas 67 county libraries received a time capsule to fill and bury sometime during 2013. What would you put in a time capsule that would represent todays Columbia County and be interesting to dig up in 25-50 years? If you have any suggestions, please email me at email@example.com, or call me at (386)758-2101. A committee of community members met in late 2012 to start thinking about what to put in the time capsule, where to bury it, and when to dig it up. The group will get together again soon to make the final decisions. So, please let us hear your suggestions. The Friends of the Library are sponsoring special Viva Florida 500 programs throughout the year. The kickoff program at the Main Library in January was a perfor-mance by Miami actor Chaz Mena who portrayed Don Pedro Menendez, the founder of St. Augustine and first governor of La Florida. Chaz was cer-tainly a crowd pleaser and the perfect person to start the Librarys year-long cel-ebration. Are you looking for interesting and fun Florida locations for your familys summer vacation? This would be a perfect time to look into Floridas diverse history by following one or more of the Sunshine States Cultural Heritage Trails. There are eight of them and include the Civil War Heritage Trail, the Native American Heritage Trail, the Black Heritage Trail, the World War II Heritage Trail, plus four more. To learn about them and locate places of interest, sites and monuments, museums, etc., please check them out at www.visitflorida.com/viva. The annual Childrens Summer Reading Program always has a theme, and this year it is Dig into Reading. The Librarys Youth Services staff are already hard at work plan-ning fun and interesting programs related to Viva Florida 500, including a visit by Barbara Hines, an archeologist with the Florida Public Archeology Network. Barbara is providing programs this year on such topics as the historic uses of Floridas medici-nal and edible plants and Spanish Florida. She makes archeology enter-taining at all levels, and you learn so much in just an hour. There will be several local history programs in 2013. These include the history of Watertown, the history of Lake City, and Columbia County history. Upcoming program top-ics can be found on the Librarys website, www.ccpl.sirsi.net. Viva Florida 500 is a once in a lifetime celebra-tion and there is so much to see and do around the state this year, starting at the Columbia County Public Library.

M any of us would love to have a flower gar-den and raise some home-grown veg-etables, but space can be a limiting factor. Container gardening can be the answer for those of us who have just a little space on a deck or patio, in the landscaping around the house or along the edge of a walk. This form of gardening is fun, and the increasing popularity is reflected in the wonderful selection of containers available in garden stores. The most enjoyable part of container gardening may even come from the containers themselves. I have spent hours at garage sales, flea markets and second-hand shops in search of the most interesting containers for my flowers, herbs and vegetables. The container may even be the actual ornamental element in the setting. Consider what you may find in an antique shop. Look for old wheel-barrows, milk jugs, metal buckets, watering troughs and nail kegs. Once you start thinking about how much soil something will hold, your imagination may really kick in. Youll start thinking about lining that wire egg basket or wooden shipping crate with plastic. Perhaps you could fill that old sink or tub with soil to raise a crop of tomatoes. But remember to drill drainage holes or put slits in plastic liners to drain excess water. Dont forget the good old variety of pots that are actually intended for plants. Glazed pottery comes in wonderful colors to compliment any home setting. If you opt for terra cotta pots, you will need to water more often because water will evapo-rate quickly from the porous clay material. Commercial bagged potting soil is a quick and easy way to fill your con-tainers. Different materials mixed together also work well. Mix media such as sand, perlite, vermiculite, pine bark, compost or peat to create your very own signature blend of potting medium. Different blends can also be found in the UF/IFAS publication http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/VH032. Your medium should drain excess moisture well, but not dry out quickly like sand. There are several options for fertilizing your plants, but you should use complete fertilizers with added micronutrients. Slow-release fertil-izers release nutrients over a longer period of time so they are always available to the plants. Now choose your plants and set your pots where they will get at least six hours of sunlight each day. For more instructions on how to design your containers, attend one of our UF workshops Container Gardening at the Fort White Public Library, 5:45 p.m. on Thursday and at the Columbia County Public Library, 308 NW Columbia Ave. in Lake City at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday. Theysre free and everyone is wel-come to attend.

Guests will travel between Diagon Alley and the existing Hogsmeade at Universal Islands of Adventure aboard the Hogwarts Express just like in the books and film. Q D. Nichelle Demorest is a horticulture agent with the Columbia County Extension of the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. CathleenI believe that texting while driving is an unnecessary risk. In fact, Florida has a bill on Gov. Rick Scotts desk to ban texting while driving. The bill has passed the House with a 110-6 vote and the Senate voted unanimously to pass the bill. I hope that Gov. Scott signs this bill into law. This would hopefully reduce the amount of car crashes, since 28 percent of car crashes, 1.6 million a year, are caused by tex-ting or using cellphones while driving. My brother and dad wait to answer texts or phone calls until they are parked in a parking lot. It is far safer that way. I tried to play Lego Racers while playing my hand-held Yahtzee game. It was really hard to concentrate on driving my little Lego car on the screen. In short, please dont text or talk on the phone and drive at the same time. Its not only dangerous for you, but also for everyone on the road with you.Madison-RoseI believe texting and driving is a very important problem. Many people die or are seriously injured every year because of texting while driving. This problem has been talked about over and over, but nobody did anything about it. I think we should ban being on the phone while driving because if it were truly an important call or text, you could always pull over to answer it and then get back on the road. That would ensure that no acci-dents can happen. In fact, the Florida Legislature has passed a bill that would ban texting while driving. If Gov. Rick Scott signs the bill it will become law. Florida is one of the few states without any texting while driving laws. This bill would make it illegal to text and drive. My opinion on this matter is that it is a great idea and we should have done it sooner. Hopefully, by pass-ing this bill, we will have fewer accidents or injuries. Recent studies have shown that driving while texting is six times more danger-ous than driving while drunk (and we all know how dangerous that is, not to mention illegal) because you are too busy looking at your phone and not look-ing at the road. No text or phone call is worth your life or someone elses. KaylaT exting and driving. It sounds harm-less doesnt it? It isnt, 5,000 people a year die from this. One fatal vibrate, the click of one or two buttons. You glance down at the screen. Your eyes arent off the road for more than three seconds. But thats all that if takes. Youve run into a tree, or T-boned another driver. It could be the end of your, or someone elses, life. What if you had a child of driving age? Looking down at that text you could swerve, and end up hit-ting, and killing your own child. You could turn your phone off when you get in the car, or tell one of your passengers to answer it for you. Doing anything while driving is dangerous. Driving is not something to be taken lightly. Every time you get behind the wheel you put yourself, and everyone else on the road on the line. Texting while driving is an issue that should be taken seri-ously. BrandyI s a text worth your life? Is it going to kill your boyfriend to wait five more minutes before you answer him? Texting while driving is a serious issue. I just recently got my permit, so you can imagine that Im not the best driver yet. However, I cant see myself ever bothering with a phone while Im driving. There is so much going on around you when youre driving that putting your-self in a position where you arent paying attention is extremely dangerous. Its not only dangerous for you, its dangerous for your passengers, the other drivers and their passen-gers, and pedestrians. You already have a chance of getting into an accident without adding in any other distractions. I really cant explain how much of an impact this can have on you and the peo-ple who love you. If you got into an accident tex-ting and driving with your family in the car and you seriously injure or kill one of them, you will never for-give yourself. Thats one of the worst feelings you can have. So do your part in keeping yourself and oth-ers safe. Put your phone down and leave it there until the car is in park and your getting out of it. The extra caution keeps the roads a little safer.

There have been times when momma-mode kicks in, Margie Kluess said. I wanted to be out on the field telling people how to handle their business. But as A.J. has gotten older, hes made it very clear when he needs mom to step in. However, she still remembers to pack the essential mom kit when headed to practice, includ-ing Ziplock bags, ace bandages, sunscreen, Gatorade, bug spray, deodorant and a bottle of Febreeze. When her son got his car, he also inherited a can of the air freshener. Ever walked through a boys locker room? Margie Kluess asked. Thats what every par-ents car out here smells like. A.J. said he likes to see his mom on the field after the game and thinks it is great she can support him the way she does. Mom knows when to be tough and when to be smooth, he said. Shes the one who keeps me going when I fall down, he said. Margie Kluess can still admit, despite her love of the game, the first time her son stepped out on the field, it was hard. Her sons came home bruised from practice, and it startled her. She quickly learned the old clich is true: Boys will be boys. GIRL SCOUT PERSPECTIVE Associated PressORLANDO Fans of Harry Potter and magic, rejoice: Universal Orlando is expanding its Wizarding World of Harry Potter with a new area based on the books fictional scenes in Diagon Alley and London. Universal Orlando announced Wednesday the new area will open in 2014. For Harry Potter fans, this is an opportunity to go to multiple places that are iconic places within the story, said Mark Woodbury, president of Universal Creative for Universal Parks and Resorts. And people that were really not big fans of the franchise came to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and were immersed in the environment and really thought it was mar-velous. We have the same expectation to take them on additional journeys. It will be built on what was the Jaws ride in the Universal Studios Florida park, which is next to Islands of Adventure where Hogwarts and Hogsmeade are located. Park officials said the two areas will be con-nected by the Hogwarts Express train, just like in the books and films. The new Diagon Alley area will feature shops, a restaurant and an attrac-tion based on Gringotts bank, which, in the J.K. Rowling series, is run by goblins. Universal said it is working with Warner Bros. and the production design team from the Harry Potter films, just like it did for the Hogwarts and Hogsmeade themed area. Im so pleased that The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has proved so popular to date, and Im sure that the attention to detail in creating the new Diagon Alley area will make this an even better experience, J.K. Rowling said in a news release. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Hogsmeade opened in June 2010. Universal Orlandos new 3-D theme park ride based on the Transformers toy and film brand will open June 20. Universal plans new Harry Potter expansion project School goes vegetarianAssociated PressNEW YORK A New York City elementary school has adopted an all-vegetarian menu. Public School 244 is the first public school in the city to go all-veggie. The animal-welfare group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says it might be the first all-veggie public elemen-tary school in the nation. Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott says hes proud of the trailblazing school. The Queens school has 400 students in pre-kin-dergarten through third grade. It wanted to offer healthy food options and started serving a vegetar-ian lunch three times a week and then increased it to four times a week. It recently went all-vegetar-ian. Principal Robert Groff said the kids gravitated toward veggie offerings, including black beans.Vet uses chiropractic on animalsBy SUE MANNINGAssociated PressLOS ANGELES Thirty years ago, Dr. Gene Giggleman was a veteri-narian who thought chi-ropractors were quacks. Since then, he says hes straightened out thou-sands of dogs and cats, not to mention the occasional snake, hamster, gerbil and guinea pig. And I know people who have adjusted pigs, goats and rodeo bulls, said Giggleman, a profes-sor at Parker University in Dallas, which specializes in chiropractic care. In Southern California, Dr. Rod Block has tended to an elephant, a paralyzed iguana, a turkey, pigs, lla-mas and countless dogs and horses. You have to be very much in tune with the being of the animal you are working with, said Block, who limits his work these days to house calls throughout Southern California, where he works with several veterinarians. A chiropractor promotes the flow of energy within the body. Anywhere there is an obstruction or blockage of energy due to subluxation or a dysfunctional group of muscles, what the chiropractor does is normalize that function, Block said. Giggleman spends most of his time teaching but still sees patients one day a week. Ninety percent of his patients need chiropractic care and 10 percent need traditional care, he said. Im not an extremist either way. I am for what-ever fixes your dog, he said. The vets say any human or animal with a spine-related problem can ben-efit from an adjustment. Unlike Giggleman, who started as a veterinarian, Block spent 30 years as a human chiropractor before he switched gears 20 years ago and became certified by the Bluejacket, Okla.-based American Veterinary Chiropractic Association. Classes take about a year of extra study, Block said. The AVCA has certified over 1,000 veterinarians or chiropractors since 1989, said Leslie Means execu-tive director of the group. There are 560 active mem-bers today and they have to be recertified every three years. However, the certificates are not licenses to practice medicine.

DEAR ABBY: My partner and I have been together 23 years and his parents have embraced me as one of their own. A few years ago, we bought his mother a beautiful diamond cocktail ring for Mothers Day. Shes now 84, and when she passes on, Id like that ring back to have it turned into a ring for my partner. Its a gesture Im sure would please him, and I hope his mother as well. I believe shes leaving her jewelry to her granddaughter, which is fine. But this par-ticular ring will mean so much if I turn it into a ring for her son. Would it be tacky for me to request this of Mom if I tell her why? I dont want to offend anyone, and I know the person who inherits her jewelry will probably pawn or sell it anyway. (Id also like to keep it on the down low so my partner doesnt find out until the ring is given to him.) What do you think, Abby? -PHIL IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR PHIL: I think what you have in mind is beautiful, and I cant imag-ine why your partners mother would object if you raise the subject. Estate planning is a fact of life. However, if she doesnt wish to change her will, and you think the grand-daughter is likely to pawn the ring anyway, you could offer to buy it from the granddaughter when the time comes. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: Is it proper to invite men to a bridal shower? -CURIOUS GUY IN MINNESOTA DEAR CURIOUS GUY: According to Emily Post: Today, showers are just as likely to include the groom and his male friends. Theres nothing improper about asking men to participate. The purpose of a shower for a bridal couple (or the expected arrival of a baby) is to cel-ebrate the upcoming event and express good wishes. Its also a way to give the couple things theyll need. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I am no advice columnist, but may I offer a few wise words to future brides? I have been married for 25 years and have never had an argument with my mother-in-law. Never! My mother gave me some valuable advice before my wedding that Id like to pass along. She said, Always respect the woman who made the man you love. I never forgot it, and my MIL has always been welcome in my home for as long as she wishes. If we had any differences, a respectful dialogue was opened right away -espe-cially if it concerned our kids education. The women who made our husbands deserve all the respect we can offer them because if we are happy as wives, it is thanks to all of them. -SIMONE IN SAN FRANCISCO DEAR SIMONE: Because today is Mothers Day, I would like to wish a happy Mothers Day to mothers everywhere, be they birth mothers, adop-tive and foster mothers, stepmothers or grand-mothers who are raising grandchildren. I applaud you all. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21April 19): Make personal changes that will improve your life, but be honest about your motives if other people are involved.

By R. NORMAN MOODY Florida Today DAYTONA BEACH Suzuki stared up at Tom Reynolds as if waiting for a command. Reynolds, of Cape Canaveral, draws the dog close and tells how grateful he is to have the animal. Hes done phenomenal since I brought him home, he said. Reynolds received Suzuki, a Labrador, shep herd and pit bull mix dog, through a partnership between the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Tomoka Correctional Institution Work Camp in Volusia County. He is going to be a good ambassador for the program, said Reynolds, 66, a disabled Vietnam vet eran who suffers from posttraumatic stress disorder. Prison Pups N Pals, which started about three years ago, is an effort involving the prison, West Volusia Kennel Club and Halifax Humane Society to train shelter dogs, making them more adoptable. The dogs are paired with a prisoner, who lives with and trains the dog for seven weeks. About two of every 10 dogs go to the VAs Paws of Freedom and receive an additional seven weeks of training. Some of those dogs are trained to open doors, turn off lights and bring the phone to its owner, depending on the needs of the veteran. Reynolds, 66, a Navy Seabee who did three tours in the Vietnam War and suffered gunshot wounds, said he believes the dog will be a great help and companion to him. I have a very severe case of PTSD, he said. I didnt know I had issues until I turned 50. Reynolds worked with the dog and trainer sev eral times before he took the animal home last week. He said the dog can sense certain mood or physical changes and may be able to help him. I lock up on my right side and Ill fall, he said. Officials said that prison ers selected for the pro gram could eventually be released from the medium security work camp with skills that will allow them to work with animals once they are released. To know that I was a part of training a dog that is going to help this person, it does a lot for me, said Michael Coats, who trained Suzuki. Being in prison is bad enough. Coats, 38, of Tampa, who is serving the final 16 months of an eight-year sentence for burglary and grand theft, said the pro gram has given him sta bility while in prison and may lead to a career on the outside. He was in another prison program that trained search dogs. When I leave, Ill have four years in dog training, Coats said. I think Im going to take that and use it for my own benefit. Angela Gordon, assistant warden, said the partner ship has drawn inquiries from other prisons that want to do the same. It helps veterans and allows more animals to be adopt ed rather than being eutha nized. In addition, it serves the prisoners well. It teaches them respon sibility, she said. It gives them something to focus on other than being in prison. It gives them something to care for. Its their responsi bility, 24 hours a day. Corrections officer Gail Irwin, who supervises the program for the prison, said she never gets tired of interacting with the ani mals and seeing them get ting adopted. Thats what keeps me going, she said. What could be better? Jennifer Muni-Sathoff, a VA social worker, said the dogs are usually strays that have suffered on the streets. They need the care of the veterans who adopt them as much as the veter ans need the dog. These dogs have been through trauma, she said. The dogs need the vets. We try to pair the dogs personality with the veter ans. Reynolds said that he already had a good bond with Suzuki before he took her home to Cape Canaveral. It will be a good rela tionship, Reynolds said. It will be a great asset in my life.

Liam Gardening By DEAN FOSDICK Associated Press Whoever believes theres nothing new under the sun hasnt seen the plants being introduced for the 2013 gar dening season. Think multi-colored blooms, high-yield veg etables bred for containers and ornamental edibles packing still more nutrition as breeders try to antici pate consumer demand. Grafted tomatoes appear to be the hottest new trend in home gardening, while cocktail gardens, featuring plants that make or embel lish alcoholic drinks, top this years niche category. Were looking for ear lier (maturing) varieties, things that work in small er spaces and plants that are different, said Kevin Roethle, head of new prod uct development for Ball Seed Co., a division of Ball Horticultural Co. The West Chicago-based company lists 295 new introductions for 2013. Were trying to create contrasts, Roethle said. Deeper colors on leaves and more vibrant blos soms. Those attributes spur impulse buying, he said. Youre picking up milk and bread at a quick-stop (gro cery) and then you wind up walking away with some flowers, too. Another trend sees many old standbys made new again. These include bi-color dahlias (Marissa, Ball), petunias (Glamouflage Grape, Hort Couture) with deep colored blooms and variegated foli age, and shade-loving bego nias (Sparks Will Fly, Ball) with brilliant flowers above rich, dark leaves. Other noteworthy plant releases for the upcoming gardening season: Pint-size vegetables including the first sweet corn you can grow in a pot. No need to garden in large rectangles when you can plant edibles in 24inch containers. On Deck Sweet Corn (Burpee) leads the parade of sev eral high-yield vegetables being developed for patios or tight spaces. Herbs that are emerg ing as the hot new flowers. Many herbal varieties look great as standalones or when mixed with traditional blooms. Check out the new Cha Cha chive (The Cooks Garden) with its unique leafettes and eminently edible flower heads. Flowers with a sur prising new look. Throw away the trellises if add ing the Sun Parasol Garden Crimson mandevilla to your landscape. This is the headliner in a new series of compact bedding plant mandevillas from Suntory, the Japanese company that brought you the first blue rose in 2009. Excellent branching also makes it a natural for hanging baskets, Suntory breeder Tomoya Misato said. And then there is Longfield Gardens new Double Oriental Lily, producing petals from the center of the flower rather than a stamen. A Longfield spokeswoman says that gives it the look of a double bloom, while doing away with pollen stains. Niche. Cocktail gar dening can be an intoxi cating hobby. Grow your own heady mixtures using the Drunken Botanist plant collection from Territorial Seed Co. in Cottage Grove, Ore. Grafting. Over a bil lion tomatoes are grafted annually for improved yields and disease resis tance, industry analysts say. Many heirlooms are uncommonly delicious, but produce too few fruit and are prone to disease and nematodes. These variet ies become more vigorous and deliver larger crops for longer periods when graft ed to proven rootstock. Try the Black Krim and Big Rainbow tomato heirlooms (Ball) for grafted combi nations that deliver good looks with good taste. New blooms, veggies and more debuting for 2013 ASSOCIATED PRESS Burpee is marketing sweet corn that is grown in a pot. No need to garden in large rectangles when you can plant edi bles in 24-inch containers.
