By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comLake City Police Department officers and city officials hon-ored the departments fallen officers and paid tribute to cur-rent officers during a brief cer-emony Wednesday morning. More than a dozen officers and employees gathered with city officials for the 2013 Law Enforcement Memorial Service, part of National Police Week activities locally. Police Chief Argatha Gilmore said law enforcement, especially the police departments across the country on Wednesday, had memorial services of some sort to recognize fallen officers. The ceremony was held in a room used for shift briefings at the department. City Manager Wendell Johnson told the offi-cers how much he respected the jobs they were doing and vowed to do his part in keeping them safe and helping them protect the community. I, as city manager, will do everything I can to protect you on your job, he said. I admire you for having the courage to protect us. Johnsons address was followed by a proclamation of the occasion read by Vice Mayor Eugene Jefferson. Three city residents who lost their lives as peace keepers in the line of duty were also recognized: Chief of Police William Strange, Chief of Police Hardy Revels and Officer Charles B. Stafford. Following their recognition, a department-wide moment of silence was observed. Its important to remember they made the ultimate sacri-fice, said Steve Shaw, police department public information officer. They willingly gave all for the community they serve. They unselfishly sacrificed themselves to protect their com-munity and property for people they may not have known. I found that to be a great honor. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comIt takes talent, pride and poise to promote anything, but when someone is pro-moting Gods Country the task is a little easier. Wednesday morning the Suwannee Valley Marketing Group held its 2013 Tourism Awards Luncheon at the Holiday Inn and Suites, where professionals at pro-moting the Suwannee River Valley were recognized for their work. Columbia County Commissioner Ron Williams, who has served on the coun-ty Tourist Development Council for 29 years, remind-ed the audience of about 100 that tourism still ranks as the top industry in Florida. We depend on tourism..., he said. We have the original Florida. We call this Gods Country and we have to pro-tect it. Williams remarks were followed by keynote speak-er Lori Pennington-Gray, a University of Florida asso-ciate professor, who spoke about tourisms economic impact and the importance of having a specialized Tourism Ambassador program. Harvey Campbell, Columbia County TDC director, then presented nine awards to local tourism pro-fessionals. Tourism is a 365-day job and every day is important to us in the tourism indus-try and every day we have people who come here, Campbell said.

TOURISM continued on 6A By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comAlmost 70 people ran, walked or rolled two kilometers to help home-less veterans and promote a healthy lifestyle Wednesday at the Lake City Veterans Affairs Medial Center. Participants were encouraged to donate items that would then be dis-tributed to veterans in need. Cindy Gaylord, assistant public affairs officer for the North Florida/ South Georgia Veterans Health System, said the event was success-ful with more than $1,150 worth of items donated for homeless veter-ans. Marcia Dimauro and Mary Ellen Pararo participated in the event and brought deodorant, toothpaste, socks, soap and undershirts. Pararo has worked at the Lake City VA for 41 years.

POLICE continued on 6A WALK continued on 3A Homeless vets benefit from walk By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comLeeann Royster, fiance of Sgt. Ruben Howard Thomas III who died while on duty at Columbia Correctional Institution last year, was among the 140 families in Washington, D.C., for the National Peace Officers Memorial Service on Wednesday. President Barack Obama was the keynote speaker. He said members of law enforcement never let down their guard and that the public they serve should never let slide our gratitude. Thomas family, including his parents, one of his sisters and his broth-er went to Washington on Monday. Monday night, Thomas name was added to the a marble memorial wall at the national memorial. Royster said seeing his name etched into the marble reinforced the reality she has lived with for the last year. It was a surreal moment because it seemed so permanent, she said. Reality hit home. It is literally set in stone. Royster said it was an honor for Thomas and will be a place for his children to visit in the future. The memorial and the memorial wall will be something that our children (and) grandchildren will be able to experience for years to come, she said. They will continue to honor their dad every year and know that he was a true hero. After the ceremony, Royster, Savannah and Jake Thomas met the president. The president hugged them and shook each of their hands. THOMAS continued on 6A
LAS VEGAS A ppearing confident but sometimes emotional, O.J. Simpson testified Wednesday he did not know guns were involved in a confrontation with sports memo-rabilia dealers that led to his convic-tion for armed robbery and kidnap-ping, and a sentence that could keep him behind bars for life. Simpson, in shackles that rattled when he shifted in his seat, took the stand in a hearing on his bid for a new trial on grounds he wasnt prop-erly represented by his trial attorney. The 65-year-old former football star and actor, now with short graying hair, receding hairline and dressed in drab prison uniform, spoke clearly as he recounted events leading up to the incident in a hotel room where the dealers had Simpson footballs and family photos. There was no talk of guns at all, he said under questioning by Patricia Palm, one of his attorneys. During the trial, two co-defendants, who took plea deals and testi-fied for the prosecution, said they had guns. Simpsons voice cracked a bit as he recounted recognizing items on the hotel room bed, including framed photos that used to hang on the wall of his Los Angeles home. There is no jury in the hearing and his fate will be determined by Clark County District Judge Linda Marie Bell.Dr. Dre, Iovine donate $70M to USC center LOS ANGELES The new Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy at the University of Southern California will offer a curriculum aimed to help young innovators create the next iPod or Facebook. The hip-hop mogul best known as Dr. Dre and the co-founder of Interscope Records appeared Wednesday along-side USC President C. L. Max Nikias to announce the new program funded by a $70 million donation by the two music superstars. The university president characterized the donation as the largest gift from the entertainment industry to American higher education.Pitt says Jolie going public was important NEW YORK Brad Pitt says it was important for his partner, Angelina Jolie, to share her story about having her breasts removed to avoid cancer and that others would understand it doesnt have to be a scary thing. In an interview published Wednesday in USA Today, the actor said: In fact, it can be an empowering thing, and something that makes you stronger and makes us stronger. Jolie revealed Tuesday in an op-ed article in The New York Times that she had a double mastectomy and breast reconstruc-tion for an inherited gene mutation that put her at high risk of breast and ovarian cancer. Pitt called the experience an emotional and beautifully inspiring few months. He added: Its such a wonderful relief to come through this and not have a specter hanging over our heads. To know that thats not going to be something thats going to affect us. My most proudest thing is our family. This isnt going to get that.

A state-created fund that backs up private insurers appears to be in the best financial shape it has been during its 20 years of exis-tence. New projections show that the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund should have nearly $12 billion available for the upcom-ing hurricane season that starts on June 1. An advisory panel for the fund will be given new estimates Thursday from Wall Street firms. Those estimates show that the fund should be able bor-row enough money to cover all of its claims. The financial health of the fund is important because the state can place a surcharge on most insur-ance policies if the Cat Fund runs out of money. Critics have called this a hurricane tax.Court rejects appeal from killer TALLAHASSEE The state Supreme Court is rejecting a final appeal from the killer of a 10-year-old-girl. Elmer Leon Carroll is scheduled to die by lethal injection on May 29. He was convicted of raping and suffocating a girl after breaking into her Orange County home almost 23 years ago. Carrolls attorney argued that he should be spared for several reasons including that his client is mentally ill. The Supreme Court rejected the arguments, including the mental ill-ness claim. The court ruled that they were brought up at the last min-ute and cannot be made now. Carroll killed Christine McGowan of Apopka, the night before Halloween in 1990. Carroll was living next door at a homeless mens mission and was arrested within hours of the girls body being found.Deputy kills car theft suspect TAMPA A Hillsborough County dep-uty fatally shot a man who authorities say tried to take another deputys gun. Sheriff David Gee said deputies had been watch-ing out for the suspect, who wasnt immediately identified, all week when a detective tracked him to Brandon. The detec-tive called for backup and approached the man, who at some point lunged at the detective. Another deputy arrived as the detective and suspect were wrestling. Authorities say the suspect was grabbing the detec-tives holstered gun when the second deputy shot the suspect once in the upper body. The suspect was taken to Tampa General Hospital, where he later died. No other injuries were reported. Gee says deputies had been seeking the suspect, who had a long criminal history, on auto theft and other charges.Putnam launches re-election bid TALLAHASSEE Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam is running for re-election. Putnam, a former member of Congress, last month quietly opened a campaign account for the 2014 election. He made no formal announcement at the time. The move should end any lingering questions that Putnam may mount a primary challenge to incumbent Gov. Rick Scott. Putnam, a Republican, was critical of Scott for supporting the expansion of Medicaid to roughly 1 million Floridians. The expansion is a key compo-nent of the federal health care overhaul. The Florida Legislature during its annual ses-sion rejected the idea of expanding Medicaid. The relationship between Putnam and Scott has been strained. Scott has been skeptical about some of Putnams legisla-tive initiatives and nearly vetoed bills backed by the agriculture commissioner.Ex-inmates: Veto Timely Justice Act MIAMI Two former death row inmates who have since been exoner-ated urged Gov. Rick Scott on Wednesday to veto leg-islation that would expe-dite the states capital pun-ishment process, worrying it will condemn some inno-cent men to death. If (this bill) had been law, it would have ended my life. I am innocent, said Seth Penalver, who was exonerated after 18 years in prison. Penalver and Herman Lindsey, who was freed after three years on death row, pleaded with the Republican governor to grant them a meeting. They fear that if Scott signs the Timely Justice Act, the governor could be putting innocent inmates to death without ample time and adequate assur-ance that they truly are guilty.

By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comTwo local men were arrested for allegedly stealing guns from a Fort White home, according to a Columbia County Sheriffs Office arrest report. Curtis Allen Handy, 21, 212 SW Grape St., in Fort White, and Scott Wilson Phillips, 22, 9566 S. U.S. 441, face charges of burglary while armed, grand theft and criminal mischief, a sheriffs news release said. Phillips mother, Shirley Nicolson, allegedly inter-fered with deputies while they arrested him, accord-ing to the arrest report. She faces an obstruction charge. The two men allegedly stole items, including mul-tiple guns on May 6, the release said. On Monday, the victim talked with deputies and told them she was contact-ed on Facebook by Chelsea Pittman who told her she had the victims class ring, the arrest report said. Phillips allegedly brought the ring to Pittmans house, along with a .38-caliber revolver and four other guns. Pittman told police that she asked them to leave because she didnt want Pittman around her children, the report said. According to the report, Phillips left the ring in Pittmans house. On Tuesday, deputies went to Phillips home. Phillips mother answered the door and deputies asked to speak to her son. Nicolson said she would tell him and went inside, the report said. Deputies then saw Phillips running from the house carrying a black gun case, the report said. Deputies caught him and recovered guns that matched the ones stolen May 6, the report said. While deputies were recovering the stolen guns, Nicolson ran up to a deputy and refused to back off when ordered, the report said. Nicolson then resisted when the deputy tried to handcuff her, the report said. The deputy grabbed Nicolson by the arm and pulled her arms together. Then he was able to put her in hand-cuffs, the report said. Deputies then went to Handys home in Fort White. They were given consent to search the home by another person that lives there because Handy was not home, the report said. Deputies found multiple guns with the serial numbers removed, what appeared to be a fully automatic Mack 10 and a sawed off shotgun, the report said. Also, depu-ties found a stolen box of ammo, camera and an assault rifle-style .22 rifle that had been stolen from the victim, the report said. After deputies removed the guns, Handy called them to report his guns as stolen. Deputies arrived back at his house and arrested him, the report said. Both were arrested Tuesday and taken to Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $17,000 bond each.

The court administrators office request is slated to be discussed during this afternoons county commission meeting. The meeting will take place 5:30 p.m. at the Columbia County School Board Administrative Complex auditorium, 372 W. Duval St. Sondra Lanier, Third Judicial Circuit trial court administra-tor, said her office is requesting space for the general magistrates office. The general magistrate a quasi-judicial officer as provided in the Florida Rules of Court. The general magistrate hears matters and makes finding of facts and recommendations to the trial court judges and the judge reviews those findings and recommendations before rendering a court order. In the last legislative session, funding was provided through the state courts for foreclosure case management staff to reduce the foreclosure backlog, Lanier said. This puts further demands on court administration space that was already very limited. Transforming the space into an office for the general magistrate as requested would make space for the incoming staff. Lanier said she has identified a space that could be turned into an office on the courthouses second floor. She said her office has requested three positions for the circuit. The request is only for office space and Lanier estimated the projects cost would be in the $12,000 range. In other business, the commission will: Q Discuss adopting an ordinance to amend the countys Tourist Development Plan, after the county decided to increase its bed tax levy. The state requires counties levying a tourist devel-opment tax to have a plan for the income, stating each penny is going to the designated use that was intended; Q Discuss a request by the county recreation department to administer the Pop Warner football program. The request asks the county to take over the responsibility of organiz-ing teams, providing uniforms, collecting registration fees and scheduling games; and Q Recognize the Columbia High School softball team that recently won a state champion-ship.DEREK GILLIAM /Lake City ReporterMarcia Dimauro and Mary Ellen Pararo walk along Sou th Marion Avenue near the Veterans Affairs Medical Center Wednesday for the VA2K.

OPINION Thursday, May 16, 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.

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 N obody questions the need to aggressively pursue information that can prevent anoth-er terrorist attack. Since 9/11, the Bush and Obama administrations have used expanded surveillance tactics to interrupt plots here at home and abroad. But the Justice Departments seizure of phone records at Associated Press offices appears beyond justification. It looks to be a heavy-handed tactic that should not have been allowed, one that should be con-demned by President Obama. Lets hope it was about containing the dissemination of highly classified information related to terrorism investigations and not about punishing those who speak to reporters without the administrations permission. Its difficult to know at this time because the Justice Department has not given a reason for seizing the phone records.... Federal investigators secretly obtained the records of 20 phone lines in several Associated Press offices, including those in Washington, D.C., and New York. The records included home phones and cellphones for AP journalists, and covered two months last year. It was around that time that an AP report on the Central Intelligence Agencys disruption of a terror-ist plot led to calls by some members of Congress to investigate the leaking of sensitive information. The Obama administration was happy to oblige. It has been more aggressive about pursuing leaks than any other previous administration, having indicted six people on charges related to leaks. Make no mistake, the leaking of classified information that threatens national security or the lives of covert operatives is against the law and should be prosecuted. But there are plenty of ways for the worlds most powerful government to obtain information about leaks without intruding on press freedoms that are intrinsic to an open society. The governments pursuit of reporters phone records is meant to intimidate anyone who chooses to speak out against the administration. It chills free speech and makes it more difficult for the press to learn about information the government wants to keep from becoming public. Under the Justice Departments own regulations, the attorney general must sign off on subpoenas for journalists phone records, and the subpoenas must be done only as a last resort.... The regulations also instruct the department to inform news organization when they seek phone records. Holder said Tuesday that his deputy had authorized the subpoena after Holder had recused himself from the investigation because of a conflict. Either way, the AP says it was not informed until last week.... For now, the White House is standing behind Holder. Obama may have to re-evaluate that support. At the least, the administration should insist Americans get a full accounting of the rationale behind this relentless snooping. The dubious snooping by the Justice Department ANOTHER VIEW LETTERS POLICY Letters to the Editor should be typed or neatly written and double spaced.

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org Telling family storiesO n a recent road trip with my sister and two cousins, we took turns telling old stories about our family, especially our grandmother. If I had to choose just one story to remember her by, this would be it. Her husband was a man of many callings, including that of a Baptist preacher. Occasionally he would share the pulpit with a visiting pas-tor, invite him home to supper and even offer to put him up overnight. This never set well with her. She had 12 children -a lot of mouths to feed and beds to make without add-ing one more. Nevertheless, she did her best to welcome them -all of them, save for one, who apparently overstayed his welcome. I dont know the mans name. Maybe Gomer. If it was ever part of the story, it has long since been forgotten. But this much I well remember: At breakfast one Saturday morning, the aforementioned houseguest dared to make an untoward remark about my grandmothers biscuits. That was bad. But then he had the gall to say he wanted her to do his laundry and to starch and iron the shirt he planned to preach in the following day. A hush fell over the table. The baby stopped crying. The clock stopped ticking. The dogs stopped scratching their fleas. My grandfather later recalled feeling a chill crawl up his spine, causing the hair to bristle on the back of his neck as he waited, he said, for all hell to break loose. Much to his surprise, his wife merely smiled and told their guest shed be happy to oblige. Which she was, extremely so.The next day at church, she sat front row and center to hear the poor man preach, and tried her best not to laugh as he danced red-faced around the pulpit, pulling at his collar and hitching up his pants -thanks to the peach fuzz she had sprinkled in the neck of his shirt and the crotch of his undershorts. I can summarize that story in one sentence: My grandmother did not abide ill manners or condescension, and she found instructive ways to make it clear to anyone daring to doubt her. The sentence is true. But the story is a far truer telling of who she was, her nature and how her family remembers her. Stories tell us who we are. They record all the pieces that we some-times leave out. But it takes a lot of stories to convey the whole of a per-sonality. And it takes a lot of time to tell and retell them, to commit them to memory before they are lost. I grew up in a time and place in which storytelling was as much a part of everyday life as TV and tex-ting are today. My children, like all children, loved stories, especially stories about things theyd done that they had no business doing and man-aged not to get killed. Their children love stories, too. They listen, not just with their ears, but with their whole bodies, grow-ing quiet and still as a cat watching a gopher hole, hanging on every detail. I wish you could see them.I hope someday, years from now, my children and their children and their childrens grandchildren will tell a few stories about me. Maybe they will tell the one about how, when I was 4, I hid my Aunt Hazels crutches and refused to give them back. Or how, when my kids were little, Id use tweezers to pull the fortunes out of their fortune cookies and replace them with more specific predictions aimed at putting the fear of God in their little daredevil souls. Or about my persistent, annoying tendencies to try to get in the wrong car, and ask too many ques-tions and embarrass my family and friends in print. We dont get to choose the stories that are told about us. The best we can hope for is that someone will know enough and remember enough and care enough to keep telling them. And maybe, if were lucky, they will tell them with a smile. Q Tampa Tribune P lease, please, theres no reason to impeach President Barack Obama and it is overreach to say were getting Watergate all over again. But the scandals are indeed piling up on each other, or, to use another metaphor, its not just raining. Its pouring. And the mes-sage to the nation is to take cover. First, of course, we recently heard convincing congressional testimony about how Washington had been informed about what was really hap-pening in Benghazi, Libya, before the administrations dupe-the-public, win-the-election charade of sending U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice out to tell a different story on TV shows. Then came revelations about some in the Internal Revenue Service seeming to think special attention should be given to the tax status of especially perilous organi-zations, those that are, you know, shudder, shudder, conservative. Now it turns out the Justice Department has engaged in what the president of the Associated Press has called a massive, unprec-edented intrusion into his organiza-tions operations. Were not talking small stuff here. Were talking about federal snoops gathering up records of two months of calls on both office and home phones of more than 100 reporters in bureaus in Washington, D.C., New York City and Hartford, Conn.... Back in May of last year, the AP learned that the CIA had spoiled an al-Qaeda plan to observe the anni-versary of the death of Osama bin Laden by detonating a bomb on a plane. The CIA intercepted an IED in Yemen, and that was that. But the CIA did not want to announce the success, telling the AP it would be announced later but that it would be dangerous to announce it immedi-ately. AP waited a while, then went with the story. While the government would not say why it examined the records obtained from phone companies, it had said previously that it was investigating the AP story. It was apparently seeking the government source of the classified informa-tion.... This was an inexcusably broad search, causing the American Civil Liberties Union to talk about a chilling effect on journalists and whistle blowers. APs president, Gary Pruitt, said the records search could possibly reveal other confi-dential sources and activities the government has no conceivable right to know. One does not arrive at a more charitable view of this phone record romp by an educated guess that the Obama administrations main reason for classifying the incident was that it pointed to a still active al-Qaeda. It seems, after all, that an effort to make everyone think terrorists were not the danger they used to be was behind the phony, baloney trick of trying to make everyone think the Benghazi horror was a conse-quence of a spontaneous protest caused by an anti-Muslim American-made movie. You may remember, too, how top administration officials were accused in the first term of them-selves leaking classified information that made President Obama look good, one of any number of seem-ing abuses insufficiently explored by some of the liberally inclined in a news industry now being abused itself.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, MAY 16, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 6A By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org Public health officials are asking local residents to be cautious of mos quitoes after a Columbia County horse died of east ern equine encephalitis earlier this month. Sallie Ford, county Health Department envi ronmental health direc tor, said the department received the confirmed positive report from the state Department of Health on Wednesday. Ford said the horse died May 4. Eastern equine encepha litis is a rare disease that is caused by a virus spread by infected mosquitoes and is one of a group of mosquitotransmitted viruses that can cause inflammation of the brain. In the U.S. there are five to 10 cases reported annually. This is our first con firmed case this year, Ford said. We did have one confirmed positive case last year in December. The horse was on prop erty in the Fort White area off Watson Road near Drew Feagle Road. Weve notified our county mosquito control (unit), and they are going to go and spray in the area, Ford said. Right now, we just want every one to be aware so we can work on prevention, because prevention is the key. There is no specific treat ment for EEE. Antibiotics are not effective against viruses, and no effective anti-viral drugs have been discovered. Severe ill nesses are treated by sup portive therapy which may include hospitalization, respiratory support, IV flu ids and prevention of other infections. The medical concern is the mosquitoes can trans fer the virus to humans, Ford said. Thats why we want the public to under stand that its out there ... THOMAS: Ceremony in DC Continued From Page 1A He asked us who we were there to honor, Royster said. Thomas other sister, Haley, is in the Navy in California. She was not able to attend. Royster said the cer emony wasnt as personal as the recent unveiling of the memorial at CCI, but it was comforting. It allows you to see everybody in the country that is going through what we are going through, she said. While at the memorial wall, Royster hung a pic ture of Thomas, her and their daughter. Thomas has a son, but died before the child was born. Royster said shes thankful to everyone in the community for help ing the family. Our family would like to say thank you to our community for their sup port, she said. We cant say thank you enough for everything everybody has done for us. TOURISM: Marketing group hands out awards Continued From Page 1A hustle and bustle so much that we dont stop and inform our community of the importance of tourism or acknowledge achieve ment and outstanding customer service for our industry. Robie Faucher, front desk clerk at Comfort Suites, was recognized as the Outstanding Hotel Employee award recipient. It makes me feel fan tastic to win this award, he said. Its an honor. Ive always enjoyed the hotel business. I actually grew up in the hotel business and my parents owned a hotel for 18 years. I had a num ber of jobs in the past, but getting back in the hotel business has been really good for me. Rod Butler, general man ager at Holiday Inn and Suites, credited the hotels owners, Mahendra and Shaku Patel and Minesh and Ketna Patel, as the rea son the hotel was a double award recipient, with the Community Service Award and Directors Award for Excellence in Tourism. The community ser vice award does not work without the support of our owners, he said. The Patel family, as the owners of the hotel, they empow er me to participate and donate back to the com munity. The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park was also a double award winner for The Directors Award for Excellence in Tourism and the Best Strategic Partner Award. Were very excited about winning the awards, said Teena Peavey, the music parks marketing director. Im very excited and accept this award on behalf of James Cornett (president and CEO of the park).

JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Wellborn Community Association president Wendell Snowden accepts the Outstanding Agri-Tourism Partner award on Wednesday. POLICE: Fallen officers remembered in ceremony Continued From Page 1A Officers had black bands covering a portion of their badges in honor of the fallen officers, and the flag out side the public safety building flew at half staff. The black shroud is always sym bolic of the mourning showing that we are given respect to law enforcement officers who have given their lives, Gilmore said. This is just our way of showing our tribute to fallen officers and at the same time appreciating the law enforcement officers who are currently serving in the profession. Gilmore also spoke about paying tribute to the three officers who gave their lives in service. Its only befitting for us at the Lake City Police Department show that we as a department give tribute to them because they really gave all, she said. We appreciate that and we want to pause from our busy schedule to ensure we give them and their families respect for what theyve done. Health advisory issued for equine encephalitis virus

MMA cage fights coming Saturday By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comFlorida Fight Foundation will present FX3: Cage Wars, an amateur MMA/Boxing/Kickboxing event at the fairgrounds on Saturday. Promoter Ronnie Frazier expects a high-octane event featuring local fighters. Its going to be MMA at the fairgrounds with roughly 15 MMA matches, Frazier said. On this card also, well have one of the first female amateur fights. Well have Brad Taylor from Ax Men there. Im hoping to have everything finished for the card. Frazier said the landscape of mixed martial arts has changed since last time he promoted an event in Lake City. Ive had them here before, but amateur martial arts has changed a little bit, he said. Where once youve had three fights, you can strike on the ground, where before you couldnt. For a spectator, once the fight leaves standing up it is more like a wrestling match. Now you can actu-ally have a punch to the face. Frazier believes that the ground and pound will make a more exciting event for spectators. Another catch is that fighters from Lake City will compete in the event. North Florida Mixed Martial Arts is now by Future Fitness and well have six or seven of our guys, and maybe even three or four more that dont train with us, Frazier said. Frazier is pumped for the event and said it will be bigger than people of Lake City have seen. Im actually a partner with Jerry Coker and right now we are the largest ama-teur promoters in Florida, Frazier said. We put on more shows than anyone in Florida. Weve been in Gainesville, Crystal River and Perry. Frazier, of course, believes the Ax Men star will be one of the main draws. The main event is FX3: Cage Wars and will be a draw, he said. A lot of people today are still using boxing rings, but we actu-ally do all our fights out of an octagon. Brad Taylor will be part of the main event. We have two or three different opponents we are looking at, and I actually coach him. Im trying to fig-ure out what the best fight is going to be. With a spot on television, Frazier intends this event to be his largest yet. Our local fight in Gainesville actually aired nationally on television with Taylor fighting, Frazier said. Theyre asking us to do another. Hes men-tioned they might show Frazier expects high-octane event with local fighters. FIGHTS continued on 6B

DEAR ABBY: I am a divorcee with college-aged children. I love my chil-dren, and I thought I loved my ex. However, after my divorce I wonder if Im capable of loving anyone other than my children again. Two years after the divorce I started a rela-tionship with a man who is 10 years older. He had recently ended a long-term dating/living together relationship. I wasnt par-ticularly drawn to him, but he was very persistent. We finally, jokingly, agreed to be exclusively casual and began dating. My children dont dislike him; they are indifferent to him. We have been dating for six years. I do not love him. He, however, professes to adore me and wants us to spend our lives together. I do NOT want this to go on any longer. I have some serious health issues and Im not inter-ested in having him as my caretaker. I dont want him doing this for me. Hes a good man. He deserves someone who wants the devotion he is so willing to give. How do I tell him to move on? Im financially stable. Hes not after my money; hes very comfortable on his own. I need to force him to go find a woman who needs or wants him. Many of his friends think I take advan-tage of his feelings. I dont want to be in this position any longer. Any advice you could offer would be a gift. -DRAGGING MY FEET IN TEXAS DEAR DRAGGING YOUR FEET: The longer you put this off, the harder it will be. **The magic words are: John, I have enjoyed your friendship, but Im not in love with you. I had hoped that as time passed I would fall in love with you, but it hasnt happened and now I realize it isnt going to. I want to deal with my health issues on my own. I dont want you to be my caretaker. What I DO want is to end our relationship so you can find a woman who will love you the way you deserve to be loved. Sadly, thats not me -but I wish you well and ... goodbye. Do not expect him to welcome this dose of reali-ty, but those are the words that will set you -and him -free. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I am a vet-eran and while I have spent this past year in school, I cant seem to connect with any of the younger students there. Its disheartening, to be honest, and I feel its part of the reason I cant enjoy school at my age (23) after all my experiences in combat. I cant decide whether to drop out and join a private security company. Any thoughts? -TORN IN MILFORD, CONN. DEAR TORN: The students you describe are at a very different level of maturity than you -and I dont mean chronologi-cally. After having experi-enced combat, you have a different perspective on whats important in life than someone who hasnt been tested. You have EARNED the right to a college degree, so please dont waste the opportunity. If you com-plete your education, you will have more career options than if you quit now. If you feel you want to go into security work after graduation, that option will still be open. Others may not be. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): A friend or lover will help you make a difficult decision. Resolve situa-tions that are weighing heavily on your mind. Show compassion and you will get your way. Hearing about or seeing some-one from your past will ignite a renewed interest. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Dont let anyone force you into an argument. Be a silent observer instead of a stubborn participant. Making an assumption will lead to a costly mistake. Get your facts and figures straight before you take on someone who is knowl-edgeable. ++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Use your intelligence and knowledge to clear up unfinished business. Personal conversations will help to establish what you can expect from the people you share your private life with and help you learn what is expected of you in return. Dont gossip. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Push to do fulfilling creative projects that high-light what you enjoy doing most and utilize your skills to the maximum. Put your-self first and embrace the changes you want to make. Network with people who share your interests. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Face an emotional situa-tion head-on and avoid an encounter that is a waste of your time. Being overly generous will not solve a problem. Communicate honestly and get your point across. Dont worry about what others think. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Explore your options and travel to places that offer knowledge, experi-ence and opportunity. Do your own fact-finding and stick to your guidelines, principles and set plans. Dont let indulgence be your downfall. Someone will be dishonest with you. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take action and impress everyone with your talents and skills. Fundraising, volunteer work or lending a helping hand will make you feel good as long as you dont let anyone take advantage of you financially or emo-tionally. Love is highlight-ed. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Review the past to avoid making the same mistake twice. Impulsive actions will be your down-fall. Take your time, even if someone is pressuring you. Focus on creative endeav-ors that you can pursue at your own speed. Dont spend foolishly. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Know whats expected of you and tend to your responsibilities first so you can focus on more engaging pastimes. Love and romance along with favorable changes at home will improve your outlook and future. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Spend more time on projects that will enhance your surround-ings or bring you in con-tact with people who have something to offer you personally or profession-ally. Dont allow someone from your past to disrupt your life even if temptation is enticing. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Weed out the people and indulgences in your life that are weigh-ing you down. Focus on home, family and building a stable and secure future. A change that entails per-sonal goals you have yet to achieve will pay off. Love is in the stars. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Ask pertinent ques-tions until you fully under-stand whats expected of you. Someone will with-hold information. A prob-lem with a friend, neighbor or relative will burden you with added responsibilities. Back away if the stakes are too high. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

The Florida Fight Foundation is presenting Cage Wars: Amateur MMA Cage Fighting event at the Columbia County Fairgrounds on May 17. Lady Tigers honored in front of school By BRANDON FINLEY email@example.com After winning the first state championship in the schools softball history, the Columbia High soft ball team has become local celebrities. On Wednesday, the school held a pep rally to celebrate the accomplish ments of the Lady Tigers after their 28-4 season that ended in a 6-2 victo ry over Pembroke Pines Charter to win the Class 6A State Softball Championship. Its almost like we are on the celebrity circuit, Columbia head coach Jimmy Williams said. Its pretty spectacular how everyone is honoring us. For the girls, the pep rally really helped them under stand what a great accom plishment this was. The team isnt only about being honored, theyre also finding ways to give back to a community they feel has given so much to them. Theyre super excited and doing their part to pass it on, Williams said. We visited the nursing home today. I think theyre just now realizing how impor tant it was. It just helps so much to show that this is a good place to be. Theres a correlation between this, the schools atmosphere, grades and it reflects Lake City positively. It shows this is a good place to raise a kid. Honestly, Im just still drowning in all the excite ment. The honor at the school on Wednesday showed a video of the Lady Tigers accomplishment and there were a few teary eyes on the team, including the coaches. The video gave me chills, Williams said. I think the pep rally was the most excited Ive been all year. Its an honor for them to feel this special and they deserve everything. This team is not only good on the field, but theyre good in the classroom, good people morally; theyre just super special people. It was great for the school to see how special they are. They just came together as a group without ever bickering. They just make a decision and go. And their last decision was to win their last game. Only one team could do that and it was Columbia to the tune of a state champi onship. It takes a lot of things to win a championship, Williams said. It takes pas sion and chemistry. As a coach, all I ever ask for is a chance to win a game, maybe a district champion ship. This team gave me a chance to win state and they went out and did it. Its like a dream.
