By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comWith hurricane season around the corner, Columbia County officials reviewed their emergency operations procedures Wednesday. Shayne Morgan, county emergency management director, had three separate meet-ings to go over what will happen at the county Emergency Operations Center when a disas-ter strikes here. Dr. William Gray, professor of atmospheric science at Colorado State University and frequently on the Weather Channel leading up to a hurricane making landfall, predicted 18 named storms for the upcoming hurri-cane season, which officially begins June 1, Morgan said. Tropical storms are named after they reach wind speeds of more than 39 mph. They become hurricanes after they reach sus-tained wind speeds of 74 mph. Morgan said the prediction calls for nine hurricanes with four of those storms reach-ing the status of “major hurricanes.” A major hurricane is any hurricane that reaches sustained wind speeds of more than 111 mph, commonly referred to as a Category 3 hurricane. Gray will update his prediction on June 3.Morgan said county employees will By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comLake City police filed criminal charges against the man who allegedly owned the gun that a 4-year-old used to accidentally shoot an 11-year-old boy at Cedar Park Apartments on Mother’s Day. Michael S. Norman, 26, faces charges of possession of a firearm by a con-victed felon, possession of a firearm with altered serial numbers and aggra-vated manslaughter, according to a city police news release. Jarvin Jackson, 11, died two days after he was shot in the neck with a Ruger 9mm handgun. The boy’s mother has not been charged, police officials said. But the state Department of Children and Families is investigating the incident, department spokesman John Harrell said. Mike Lee, public information officer with LCPD, said there were nine chil-dren staying in the home at the time, and that Norman was the father of the 4-year-old who shot Jarvin.

Lake City Police Department public information officer Steve Shaw said Wednesday he was uncertain about a connection between the four incidents. Two of the cases happened at S&S Food Stores, while the other happened-Hip Hop Fish and Chicken. According to the reports, the cases involved a $10 bill, a $20 bill, two $50 bills and one $100 bill.

Fla. ranked 42nd in school spending TALLAHASSEE — Florida’s per-pupil spend-ing is among the lowest in the nation according to data compiled by the U.S. Census. The Census on Tuesday released its annual report on per-pupil spending for public elementary and secondary schools in fiscal year 2011. Florida spent $8,887 per student, which is significantly below the national average of $10,560. That figure placed Florida 42nd out of 50 states and the District of Columbia. The Census data was drawn from the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2011. It does not take into account what has hap-pened the last two years. Florida cut education spending by more than $1 billion during Gov. Rick Scott’s first year in office. Legislators restored the funding in 2012. They added more than $1 billion in the budget Scott signed on Monday.Tribe faces $170M tax bill MIAMI — The Internal Revenue Service has hit the Miccosukee Indians with a $170 million bill for failing to report and with-hold taxes from its distri-bution of gambling profits to tribal members. The Miami Herald reported Tuesday that the IRS also sent bills totaling $58 million to hundreds of the South Florida tribe’s members for failure to pay personal taxes on those distributions from 2000 to 2005. The newspaper says the agency has been fighting with the tribe for years over its refusal to pay taxes on distributions of profits from the casino in west Miami-Dade County. The numbers are expected to rise as IRS examin-ers are now auditing the tribe’s gambling distribu-tions for 2006-2010. The tribe contends it does not have to withhold taxes on gambling distri-butions.Court agrees to shield legislators TALLAHASSEE — A Florida appeals court is ruling that state legislators and legislative staff don’t have to answer questions in a contentious lawsuit. A divided 1st District Court of Appeals on Wednesday struck down an earlier decision con-nected to a challenge to Florida’s new map for its 27 congressional districts. A coalition of groups sued last year and main-tained legislators violated new standards for drawing up the districts. Those standards mandate dis-tricts can’t be drawn to protect incumbents. Lawyers wanted to interview legislators and staff about their reasons for drawing up the maps a certain way. Judge Terry Lewis ruled in October that some ques-tioning was allowed. But the appeals court ruled 2-1 that legislators and staff have a privilege that protects them from having to testify.Pit bulls killed after attacks DAYTONA BEACH — Two pit bulls involved in an attack on three peo-ple have been euthanized at the Halifax Humane Society in Daytona Beach. The dogs’ owners decided to surrender them rather than going to a hearing following an attack Friday in Holly Hill, said Tyler Stover, a spokesman for the shelter. A similar fate may awaits three of five pit bulls involved in a May 5 attack on a woman and her 6-year-old daughter in Flagler County. Officials said the woman and child were walking along a road when the pack of dogs attacked them. The girl was not harmed but her mother was hospitalized.

He was 89. His daughter Bebe Emerman said Tuesday that her father died of complications from pneumonia at the Miami Jewish Home for the Aged, where he had lived since his health began failing in 2004. The Criteria studio, which he opened in 1959 in North Miami, has been operated by the Hit Factory since 1999. Some 250 gold or platinum singles and albums were recorded at Criteria, which became known as Atlantic Records South when Emerman formed an alliance with producer Tom Dowd. The records include “Layla” by Clapton’s group Derek and the Dominoes, James Brown’s “I Feel Good,” ‘’Eat A Peach” by The Allman Brothers Band and parts of huge 1970s hits such as “Saturday Night Fever” by the Bee Gees, Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours” and “Hotel California” by the Eagles. He built Criteria with a loan from his father and opened it in 1959 as Miami’s first world-class recording studio. Other musicians who record-ed there over the years included Black Sabbath, Bob Dylan, Gloria Estefan, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Lynyrd Skynyrd and R.E.M.Chad Johnson arrested for probation violation FORT LAUDERDALE — Former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson has been arrested for a probation violation stemming from an alterca-tion with his now ex-wife, TV reality star Evelyn Lozada.

From staff reports Florida Highway Patrol troopers arrested a man and woman from South Carolina for alleged drug possession after they reportedly ran out of gas on Interstate 75. Jennifer Lynn Jernigan, 27, and William Jarred Wilkey, 29, both of Marietta, S.C., face charges of vehicle theft, possession of drug equipment and two charges of possession of prescrip tion drugs without a pre scription, according to an FHP arrest report. A person called FHP and reported that a man and woman had left a white pickup truck on the side of the interstate at about noon Monday. Trooper Michael L. Oglesby checked on the vehicle and determined it was stolen. While troopers were searching the truck, the owner of a nearby prop erty told them two people climbed a fence and stashed something under a T-shirt, the report said. The two suspects were located and detained, the report said. The troopers also found the T-shirt, which had a handbag underneath it, that contained the pickups license plate, drug parapher nalia and a bottle of pills, the report said. The pills were identified as hydrocodone and tramadol. Also, the bag contained two South Carolina identifi cation cards, which matched the two suspects, the report said. Jernigan and Wilkey said they ran out of gas, the report said. They were arrested and taken to Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $20,000 bond each. MONEY: Police dont see connection in 4 cases Continued From Page 1A drive-through employee had received two counterfeit bills from a customer at 8:30 p.m. The bills were discov ered when Steak n Shake employee Tamara Walker was preparing a bank deposit. Walker found one counterfeit $100 and one counterfeit $50. The woman who allegedly used the bills was described as an elderly, heavyset, white woman driving a silver Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck. No arrests were made. The following Monday, Officer Peter Michaels arrived at the S&S Food Store, at 490 SW Marion Ave., in response to a counterfeit com plaint at about 3:42 p.m. Store atten dant Elizabeth Hathaway said she was providing change to a customer after a sudden increase in traffic and noticed a counterfeit $10 bill. Because of the traffic, she could not pinpoint exactly when she received the bill. On Tuesday, at about 3:28 a.m., Officer Ryan Gutshall responded to a counterfeit complaint at the S&S Food Store at 537 SW Highway 247. Store attendant Lenora Gasbarri said at 3:20 a.m. an unknown male tried to buy items with a counterfeit $50 bill. The bill marked brown when tested with a counterfeit detector pen and also did not contain a watermark. After informing the man that the bill was fake, he left without incident. The most recent report occurred at Hip Hop Fish and Chicken, at 452 N Marion Ave., at approximately 3:47 p.m. Tuesday. When Officer Connie Hightower responded, employee McKeon Denson said a male tried to pay for food with a counterfeit $20 bill. When told the bill was counter feit, the man tried to take the money back, saying he got it from someone else. Shaw suggests that all businesses check any bill over $20. If the police department collects counterfeit bills, they send them to the U.S. Secret Service to be verified. Lately, Shaw said, many bills reported as coun terfeit turn out to be the result of a defective counterfeit detector pen. If the police department uncovers a connection among the four instanc es, Shaw said, they will investigate further. TOBACCO: Summit discusses reduction efforts Continued From Page 1A presented the event. The region has one of the highest rates of smoking in the state, said Marilyn Mesh, the execu tive director of the Health Education Center. The main point of the summit is just to provide [health educa tors] with information on the latest trends in the tobacco world, said Sarah Catalanotto, tobacco program manager at the Health Education Center. Nurses, social work ers, SWAT coordinators and Health Department employees attended the event. During the summit, Catalanotto, one of four speakers, discussed the rise of e-cigarettes. Gustavo Torrez, pro gram manager with The Network for LGBT Health Equity, talked about the LGBT community as a high-risk community for tobacco use because of the stress associated with being routinely discrimi nated against. Dr. Jamie Pomeranz, associate professor at the University of Florida, spoke about individuals with dis abilities and how to work with them to reduce the number of smokers within that population. Cathy Cook, tobacco healthcare training coor dinator with the Health Education Center, spoke last on how to implement tobacco cessation tech niques in the workplace. The e-cigarette is still so new that health educators dont really know the longterm effects of the vapor, Catalanotto said. What lit tle research has been done has shown that the prod ucts do result in adverse heath effects, such as lung restrictions, pneumonia and a racing heart, she said. However, e-cigarettes are being marketed as safer and cheaper. Since we dont know what the product can do, we dont advocate for it, she said. Samantha Brighton, tobacco prevention special ist with the Pasco County Health Department, called e-cigarettes a new battle the war against tobacco. The department works with to reduce the number of people who start smok ing before they are 18, but e-cigarettes target teens. The e-cigarettes look exciting, can be personal ized and purchased in dif ferent flavors, said Monica Rousseau, a tobacco pre vention program consul tant with the Pasco County Health Department. Theyre youth friendly, she said. It even sounds technology-based. Suwannee River Area Health Education Center focuses on rural communi ties, where tobacco use is higher because of poverty levels and cultural aspects, said Chris Glymph, pro gram director for the Putnam County Anti-drug Coalition. Once we get under the poverty level, we see a huge increase in tobacco use, he said. According to Glymph, people in rural communi ties tend to spend recre ation hours outdoors, such as in the hunting commu nity where its common for a father to pass down dip ping of smokless tobacco to his son as they spend the morning hours waiting for a deer. Shomari Bowden, health education consultant for the Columbia County Health Department, felt it was important for the county to be represented at the event. Tobacco use is popular in rural areas like the county, he said. Since he works with the SWAT program at area schools, he intends to take the information about ecigarettes back to the students. SERVICE: Set for Friday Continued From Page 1A This annual event pro vides those in our area an opportunity to gather together to pay tribute to and honor those service men and women who paid the ultimate price to ensure the democratic principles that our nation was found ed upon, Maureen Wilkes, associate director of the Lake City VAMC, said in a prepared statement. Cindy Gaylord, assistant public affairs officer for the North Florida/South Georgia Veterans Health System, said its important for people to remember the contribution veterans made throughout the year and not just on Memorial Day. We decided to hold the ceremony on the Friday before the holiday because it is not only important to honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms on Memorial Day or even through Memorial Day weekend, she said. We at the Department of Veterans Affairs hope that all will catch the spirit of the true meaning and importance of Memorial Day and carry it with you throughout the coming months and years. Although the event is in its 19th year, it remains one of the more popular events hosted at the local VA. Gaylord said more than 100 people normally attend the event. This year, we are hop ing that the numbers will increase, she said. In years past, parking has been an issue. This year, Winn Dixie has graciously opened their parking lot for those that attend the event. Once we get under the poverty level, we see a huge increase in tobacco use.

Gov. Rick Scott is in Chile on a trade mission we hope bears fruit that will aid the state’s continued recovery from the long recession. Before he left for South America on Monday, the governor wisely vetoed several budget items before signing the $74.1 billion state budget. The vetoes totaled $368 million... Many of the line-item vetoes were for projects that Florida TaxWatch last week identified as “turkeys,” items that were not part of the state Legislature’s budget process. They join us in commending the governor for saving money and getting rid of some pet projects. “Florida TaxWatch applauds Governor Scott for thoughtfully and properly vetoing these Budget Turkeys, which are projects that did not receive the same analysis and deliberation as the rest of the budget,” Dominic M. Calabro, president and chief executive officer of Florida TaxWatch, said in an email. Florida TaxWatch is an independent, nonpartisan, government watch-dog. The News Service of Florida reported that the vetoes included $14 million on a building project at Gulf Coast State College to $20,000 for the Hialeah Junior Fire Academy in South Florida. Scott told the News Service his decision to veto some spending was a simple test: “One, is it going to help our families get more jobs? Two, will it help improve our education system in our state? And three, will it make government more efficient so we can keep the cost of living low in our state?” By vetoing the college request, Scott showed he’s willing to lock horns with leaders of his own party. The building at Gulf Coast State College was a project favored by state Sen. Don Gaetz, the senate president. TaxWatch Chairman John Zumwalt III said giving Florida’s chief executive a veto power is pay-ing off, particularly with the state budget, and we agree. “Florida’s fiscal discipline, which is on display today as the governor exercises his line-item veto, has contributed to Florida paying down its debt and increasing its bond rating, while the federal government has seen its debt increase and bond rating fall.” The governor’s ability to veto what he perceives as excessive or wasteful spending is an important check on the state Legislature. Without the veto, budgets could easily get filled with pet projects, especially in an election year. This was the governor’s third budget. He has shown his resolve to get the state’s financial house in order, attract jobs and get people back to work.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Of Benghazi, black swans and icebergs S aid the polymath phi-losopher Nassim Nicholas Taleb, “Humans are great at self-delusion.” I’m confident he’d agree that the humans who populate the foreign policy community are no exception. Two years ago this month, Osama bin Laden was killed on President Barack Obama’s orders -a very good thing. Before long, however, sophisticated analysts were declaring that this was not just a battle won -it was a war ended. If bin Laden was dead, they asserted, rigor mortis also must have set in at al-Qaida. Nor could any serious threat continue to be posed by the supremacist, totalitar-ian ideology that al-Qaida was cre-ated to advance -not to mention the closely related ideology that Iran’s rulers champion. Among those most prominently writing and lecturing on al-Qaida’s “defeat” were retired Lt. Col. Thomas Lynch, a distinguished research fellow at the National Defense University, and Peter Bergen, a director of the New America Foundation, CNN national security analyst and producer of the first television interview with bin Laden in 1997. “I’ve devoted 20 years of my life” to this problem, Bergen said dur-ing a debate last fall that the New America Foundation co-sponsored with the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, the think tank I run. “I feel like a Sovietologist in 1989, and that’s a good feeling.” I’m recounting this not to disparage Bergen, Lynch and other smart people whose bold analyses turned out, unfortunately, to be incorrect. What I do want to emphasize is that ideas matter: Give a broken compass to a man in the jungle and chances are he’ll end up lost, if not in the jaws of a crocodile. Which brings me to the murders of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi last Sept. 11. Much of the commentary has focused on the State Department’s characteriza-tion of the attack as “a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet” by an individual seeking to “denigrate the religious beliefs of others” -specifically, a video made by an Egyptian Christian in California lamely lampooning Islam. We now know what actually happened: Self-proclaimed jihad-ists linked to al-Qaida planned and carried out an assault on the anniversary of al-Qaida’s attacks on America’s economic and politi-cal capitals. We now know that the State Department, the CIA and the military were ill-prepared before the attack, did nothing useful during the attack and contributed to mis-representations after the attack. This has given rise to the suspicion that Obama, who was in the home stretch of his re-election cam-paign, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who was positioning herself for a campaign in 2016, knew the truth but chose not to tell it -a con-spiracy theory. But is it not also possible that Obama, Clinton and other senior officials actually did buy the al-Qaida-is-dead theory that Lynch, Bergen and others had proffered? The fact that this theory coincided with their interests would only have made it more persuasive. There are reasons why “humans are great at self-delusion.” In his best-selling book, “The Black Swan,” Taleb endeavors to explain “everything we know about what we don’t know,” with particular emphasis on the impact of the unex-pected (e.g. black swans). I suspect he’d say that those prematurely reporting the death of al-Qaida were confusing “absence of evidence” with “evidence of absence.” We had not suffered an attack on the scale of 9/11 in years. On that basis, they theorized that al-Qaida would never again be able to stage such an attack, nor would other jihadists, and that attacks of lesser lethality should not be a source of great con-cern. Taleb quotes a certain Captain E.J. Smith writing in 1907 about the safety of modern ocean travel, noting that in his entire career he “never saw a wreck and never have been wrecked nor was I ever in any predicament that threatened to end in disaster of any sort.” On April 10, 1912, Smith took command of the RMS Titanic. Taleb’s larger points are these: It is harder than it seems for anyone, experts very much included, to predict the future because the most consequential variables are almost always unknown. We also know less about the past than we think -less about the causes and motivations that actually gave rise to the pres-ent. All this provides no excuse for policy makers who fail to plain for a range of contingencies -be they icebergs in the North Atlantic or jihadists attacking in Libya on the anniversary of 9/11/01. Q Pensacola News Journal Gov. Scott’s vetoes Apple’s tax avoidance is rotten A pple is best known for the brilliance of its tech-nological wizardry. But when Senate investiga-tors finish examining its financial practices, the electronics giant may be best known for its bril-liance in legal tax avoidance. Through complexity that rivals the inner workings of its computers, Apple has avoided paying taxes on billions of dollars it earns overseas, money that last year accounted for 61 percent of its earnings. Exploiting technicalities and discrepancies in tax laws in the United States, where it’s headquartered, and in Ireland, where it manages a web of overseas subsidiaries, Apple paid virtually no taxes on $74 billion in earnings in the last four years. And as long as that money stays off-shore, Apple won’t have to. The company did pay $6 billion in U.S. taxes last year, at what the company says was an effective rate of 30.5 percent, close to the top cor-porate tax rate of 35 percent. That prompted Sen. John McCain of Arizona -the ranking Republican on the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations -to observe that Apple had the dual dis-tinction of being both the U.S.’s larg-est taxpayer and largest tax avoider. Slightly oversimplified, here’s how one avoidance scheme worked: Apple’s overseas holding companies are incorporated in Ireland; the company is based in Cupertino, Calif. The U.S. taxes are based on where the companies are incorpo-rated; Ireland taxes on the basis of where they are managed and controlled. Thus, according to The New York Times, “Apple was able to, in effect, make them stateless -exempt from taxes, record-keeping laws and the need for the subsid-iaries to even file tax returns any-where in the world.” One top tax expert told the Times that economists had a technical term for this kind of brazen avoid-ance: “unbelievable chutzpah.” Apple is not alone in this form of corporate tax avoidance, only better at it than most. Its example points up the need for a thorough reform of the U.S. tax code, a complex legisla-tive undertaking that is most unlike-ly in the current political climate. The Apple revelations may have killed plans for a tax holiday, allow-ing firms to repatriate some of their overseas profits at a highly prefer-ential tax rate. In 2004, the last tax holiday, $300 billion was repatriated at a rate of 5.25 percent. But 92 percent of the repatriated money went into dividends, stock buybacks and executive bonuses instead of the investment, new hires and R&D that businesses promised. Congress, in its solicitude for business -especially big business -should keep in mind that, in 2011, individuals paid $1.1 trillion in federal taxes. Corporations paid about $181 billion. Maybe those individuals should have Apple do their taxes. Cliff May Q Clifford D. May is president of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, a policy institute focus-ing on terrorism.

From staff reportsOn May 16, youth members of the Lake City Police Department’s Explorer Program joined LCPD officers for a fundraiser event at Applebee’s referred to as a “Tip-A-Cop.” At the event, Explorers and officers helped wait tables for the evening to promote the program. Patrons who were pleased with the additional ser-vice gave an additional tip at the end of their meal as a donation to the pro-gram. In three hours, approximately $250 was raised. LCPD Chief Argatha Gilmore was pleased with the results. “This event was a successful effort. We helped raise funds that will be used to pro-vide additional training opportunities to the youth while spreading the word about the program.” The Explorer Program is designed for youth ages 14 through 21 who are interested in law enforcement. This program helps build leadership skills, promotes good citizenship and allows members the opportunity to learn first-hand what a career in law enforcement would be like while earning community service hours. Those interested in applying for the program should contact Officer Mike Lee, the program’s coordina-tor, at (386) 758-5489. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL THURSDAY, MAY 23, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-04246A 164 NW Madison Street Historic Downtown Lake City, FL 32055 386.758.1811 (option 1)wolfsonchildrens.org/columbiacounty You’re closer than ever to nationally ranked health care for your child.The same world-class pediatric specialists with Wolfson Children’s Hospital are now in Columbia County.

Jennifer Lentini, 43, 850 SW Symphony Loop, was charged with retail theft. She was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $1,000 bond. According to a Lake City Police Department report, the loss prevention representative at JC Penney, 2469 W U.S. Highway 90, told police that on May 8, Lentini took the $160 gift card when a couple came into the store to exchange wedding rings they had purchased. On the following day Lentini reportedly made a $101 purchase on the same card, police were told. Lentini was read her constitutional rights and given the option of writing a sworn statement about the incident, but she refused. STORMS: Plans tested Continued From Page 1Aundergo formal training on June 5 and minimum base-lines are being established for every employee at the Emergency Operations Center. Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter and Tomi Brown, assistant supervisor of elections, also attended the meeting. Hunter helped explain how the emergency center operates. In the emergency operations headquarters, a table stretches the length of the room. Around the table, there are stations with telephones and computer monitors. During a disas-ter, the emergency center has law enforcement, elect-ed officials, volunteers and emergency operations staff working to react to the situ-ation. Other elected officials and county staff attended the two other meetings Wednesday. Columbia County Clerk of the Courts P. DeWitt Cason was at the first Wednesday meeting. He said he has been pushing for formal training sessions for the past couple years. “It’s extremely important for (emergency services) and for the community,” he said. Cason said he encourages his staff to attend any training that is offered at the operations center. During disasters, Cason volunteers to man a phone at the cit-izen’s information center, where accurate information is provided to the public during a storm event or disaster. He said he doesn’t identify himself. “But you would be surprised at how many rec-ognize my voice,” he said. “As far as the information center, any citizen can vol-unteer for the that.” Cason said anyone who would like to volun-teer at the information center should contact the Emergency Operations Center to be put on the list for training. “It’s well worthwhile,” he said. “It’s very rewarding.” During an emergency, the public can contact the information center at (386) 719-7530. Morgan said the operations center will hold a training session for volun-teers on June 5. GUN: Man charged in fatal accidental shooting Continued From Page 1ANorman was Jarvin’s moth-er’s sister’s boyfriend. Both the mother and her sister were not at home when the shooting occured. The 4-year-old was Jarvin’s cousin, Lee said, and the other children were a combination of the mother’s children and her sister’s children. Neighbors said that Jarvin’s mother was in White Springs on Mother’s Day, the day of the shoot-ing, visiting her sick mother. On May 12, Norman was watching the children at 443 NW Bascom Norris Drive Apt. 202, according to the release. He told police he felt the apartment complex was unsafe and brought the gun as a precaution, the release said. Norman told police he left the gun on a kitchen table before going to sleep at 3 a.m. on May 12. He woke to the sound of gun-fire about 8 a.m. and rushed to the living room where he saw a 2-year-old girl and a 4-year-old girl, the release said. Jessica Queen, a neighbor, also heard the shot and called police, the report said. Queen saw Norman leave the apartment screaming for help moments after the gunshot, the report said. She said Norman kept repeating “I’m gonna go to prison for this. I’m going to go to prison for this,” the release said. Investigators interviewed the 2-year-old and the 4-year-old. They deter-mined the 4-year-old girl woke up and saw the 2-year-old girl playing with the handgun. Both children then started to handle the gun, the report said. While they played with the gun, it fired and shot Jarvis in the neck, the report said. The 4-year-old girl had injuries to her face from the recoil of the 9mm handgun, the report said. Norman told police he bought the gun from a man in White Springs “off the street.” Norman is a con-victed felon, which makes it illegal for him to own a gun, the release said. Also, the serial numbers were altered on the handgun, police said. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office website shows two felony drug arrests for a Michael S. Norman with the same date of birth as the man charged by Lake City police. However, the Department of Corrections does not list any convictions for a Michael S. Norman. The charges were filed with the Third Circuit State Attorney’s Office, and LCPD was waiting for an arrest warrant for Norman, the release said. As of press time, Norman was not in police custody. “Our investigators have worked diligently this past week in ensuring to help paint a clear picture of the events that caused this to happen,” Police Chief Argatha Gilmore said in the release. “It is truly a sad time in Lake City that this innocent child has lost his life due to the entire circumstances sur-rounding the manner in which this child was taken from our community. Our prayers and thoughts continue to be with the family.”‘Tip-A-Cop’ fundraiser successfulStore employee faces charge of retail theft

By ANDREW SELIGMAN Associated Press CHICAGO Brian Urlacher wasnt sure how dominant he could be any longer, so hes calling it a career after 13 seasons with the Chicago Bears. And what a career it was: Eight Pro Bowl seasons; Defensive Player of the Year in 2005 A trip to the Super Bowl as 2006 NFC champion. And now, its over. The eight-time Pro Bowler announced his retirement through social media accounts Wednesday. After spending a lot of time this spring thinking about my NFL future, I have made a decision to retire, Urlacher said in a statement. Although I could continue playing, Im not sure I would bring a level of performance or passion thats up to my standards. When consid ering this, along with the fact that I could retire after a 13-year career wearing only one jersey for such a storied franchise, my deci sion became pretty clear. I want to thank all of the people in my life that have helped me along the way. I will miss my team mates, my coaches and the great Bears fans. Im proud to say that I gave all of you everything I had every time I took the field. I will miss this great game, but I leave it with no regrets. Urlacher was the face of the Bears, and he ranks among the best middle linebackers to suit up for a franchise with an impres sive list that includes Hall of Famers Bill George, Dick Butkus and Mike Singletary. In the pantheon of Bears, Brian has earned his place alongside Halas, Grange, Nagurski, Ditka, Payton and yes, Bill George, Butkus and Singletary, Bears chairman George McCaskey said. We congratulate Brian on a brilliant career and he will continue to be a welcomed member of the Bears Family in retirement. Added receiver Earl Bennett on Twitter: Great player... Great teammate... Awesome person!!!! In March, Urlacher and the Bears were unable to reach a contract agree ment and he became a free agent. He started 180 games from 2000-2012, and made a team-record 1,779 tack les. He has 41 1 2 22 intercep tions, 16 fumble recoveries and 11 forced fumbles. Last year, he was slowed by a knee problem and then missed the final four games with a hamstring injury. Urlacher had posted pic tures on Twitter indicating he was working his way back into shape before the split with the Bears. But when they announced he would not be back, it was hardly a surprise. Urlacher told the teams flagship radio station at the time that he was not shocked and the offer he received was more like an ultimatum in which they were telling him, Sign this contract or we are going to move on. The split with Urlacher was just one of many moves in a busy offseason for the Bears. They fired coach Lovie Smith after a second straight late collapse left them out of the playoffs for the fifth time in six years, despite 10 wins. They replaced him with the offensive-minded Marc Trestman, hoping he could get the most out of quar terback Jay Cutler, and revamped their offensive line. On defense, the only starting linebacker return ing is Lance Briggs. Lake City Reporter SPORTS Thursday, May 23, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?

Bears LB Brian Urlacher announces his retirement Williams reflects on championship BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City Reporter Columbia High head coach Jimmy Williams congratulates Lacey King during a playoff game. CHS coach says award is about team, not him By BRANDON FINLEY bfinley@lakecityreporter.com Columbia High head coach Jimmy Williams said after winning the Class 6A State Championship that he finally felt validated as a head coach. He received the icing on the cake by being named the Class 6A Coach of the Year by the Florida Dairy Farmers Association. For a coach with over 100 career wins in eight seasons as the Lady Tigers head coach, you wouldnt think that a championship was needed for Williams to feel like hes a good coach. Williams said he first started thinking about what it would mean to win a championship the night the Lady Tigers game was suspended with Columbia up 3-0 after the third inning of the championship game against Pembroke Pines Charter School. I thought last night about all the great coaches that havent won a champi onship, Williams said after winning the championship, 6-2, on May 12. For Williams it was the exclamation point to an already excellent coaching career. It felt good, Williams said. It kind of put a stamp on it. I always thought if I could just develop the play ers, I was doing good. But Williams knew that a state championship wasnt his to share in the glory alone. He was sure to thank his assistant coaches (Mitch Shoup and Greg Sund) and players. We had a meeting at the first of the year and we talk ed about how anything we do is a privilege, because its doing something for the team, Williams said. We tried to learn what talent everyone had and find a way for it to work for us. The lineup changed all year and we always went with the hot hand. There was strategy to how we built the lineup. Even in the champi onship game, everyone was able to play. But even after feeling validated, Williams added another accomplishment to his bookshelf with the Class 6A Coach of the Year Award. To me it was something I felt like would eventually happen, but I wasnt sure when, Williams said. I knew that we had the tal ent to put us in the situa tion with such a great team. It feels wonderful. It says that were doing something right. Its not just about me though. Its about the coaches, the parents that put time in during the sum mer and its really the hard work of a lot of people. Williams said its an award everyone can be proud of. Its for the whole com munity to share in this glorious achievement, he said. To me, its just overwhelming. Williams said the CHS softball banquet is open to the public for a $15 charge with the proceeds going towards buying state cham pionship rings. The banquet is May 30.

Jaworski is serious about Tebow in AFLBy DAN GELSTONAssociated PressPHILADELPHIA — Could it be Tebow Time in the Arena Football League? Philadelphia Soul part owner Ron Jaworski said on Wednesday he was serious about his offer to former New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow to join the AFL team. Jaworski, a former Philadelphia Eagles quar-terback, reached out to Tebow a day after the Jets released him in April. Jaworski has yet to hear from Tebow, but expects to eventually. “I love the guy,” Jaworski said. “I want him here just for his leadership.” Tebow was brought to New York to be a dynam-ic addition to the offense, a complement to Mark Sanchez and a merchan-dising touchdown for the Jets. Instead, he attempt-ed just eight passes for 39 yards and rushed 32 times for 102 yards — and no touchdowns. “I know Tim’s in a funk right now,” Jaworski said. “But I think he’s got to have a career path. What’s he going to do to get back?” It’s a path that could go through Philadelphia. The Orlando Predators have also expressed interest in Tebow. Tebow is currently a free agent and hasn’t garnered interest from NFL teams since being cut. Agent Jimmy Sexton did not immediately return a call for comment. Tebow’s inaccurate passing, in addition to the relentless media atten-tion he draws, makes him a risky acquisition for any NFL team. The Jets acquired Tebow for a fourth-round draft pick and $1.5 mil-lion in salary, and he was expected to be a vital part of New York’s offense. Yeguete has knee surgeryAssociated PressGAINESVILLE — Florida forward Will Yeguete is recovering from another knee surgery. Yeguete had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Wednesday, his second in the last four months. Both were to clear out loose bodies. The school says Yeguete’s recovery will take about four months, meaning he should be cleared by the time preseason practice begins in October. Yeguete had the same knee scoped in February after dealing with tendini-tis all season. He missed six games following that surgery, and then had swelling after the Gators beat Minnesota to advance to the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament.

DEAR ABBY: I was surprised to see you equate a concerned grandmother’s creative solution to smok-ing with bribery in your Feb. 14 column. The word “bribe” has a negative connotation. What the grandmother did was offer an incentive, NOT a bribe, that will benefit her grand-children in the long run. I think the woman should be congratulated. Now for a disclaimer: When my daughter was 14, I came up with the same idea in the form of a wager. I bet her that if she could resist peer pressure and not become a smoker by the time she was 21, I would buy her the dress of her dreams. To my delight, she won the bet. By then she was studying to become a marine biolo-gist, so instead of a dress, the money went toward a wetsuit. At 43, she’s still a nonsmoker and she has now made that same bet with her children. It’s the best money I ever spent. -RETIRED CLINICAL SOCIAL WORKER DEAR R.C.S.W.: Oh me, oh my, did I get clobbered for my response to that let-ter. Out of the hundreds of letters and emails received, only ONE person agreed with me. The rest were smokin’ mad. Read on: DEAR ABBY: In my many years as a school psychologist, I have coun-seled hundreds of parents and teachers about deal-ing with behavioral issues in children. I often make the distinction between a “bribe” and a “reward” by describing a bribe as something you give someone to do something dishonest, while a reward is given for doing some-thing commendable. What she did was reward their good choice in not devel-oping a potentially fatal habit. -OLD-SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGIST DEAR ABBY: When you give someone money for something that has already been completed, it’s a paycheck and not a bribe. It was pointed out to me that few of us would continue to go to work if we weren’t paid for it, and those grandchildren were being paid for “work” that was already completed. It’s an important distinction that may be helpful for parents and other adults to understand. -FORMER SCHOOL PRINCIPAL DEAR ABBY: I disagree with your answer! What that grandmother did was REWARD her grandchil-dren, not bribe them. A lot of pressure is put on teens, and it takes considerable willpower and maturity to avoid some of these temp-tations. At 16 or 17, none of them can imagine being 60 or 70 with lung disease. Hooray for grandparents who can help them avoid adopting a life-threatening habit in any way they can! -GRANDMOTHER IN IOWA DEAR ABBY: I told my son I would give him $1,000 at the age of 21 if he didn’t smoke. It wasn’t bribery. It was a great tool to combat peer pressure. Whenever he was offered a cigarette, he could sim-ply say he had a better offer. Not only did it work, the other kids were envi-ous. -MICHIGAN MOM DEAR ABBY: My preteen daughter was devas-tated when her maternal grandfather died from the effects of emphysema. In spite of it, she took up smoking in her teens. By the way, she has now been diagnosed with pre-cancerous cells, but even this hasn’t been enough to cause her to quit. -WOULD HAVE DONE ANYTHING DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): A change in the way you view life and the type of people you want to hang out with will result in per-sonal experimentation, not to mention a life lesson. Proceed with caution and question whatever appears false. Love is on the rise. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t react quickly if someone asks you for something. Take care of your own interests first. Gather all the information you can and offer solutions that will not stand in the way of your plans. Don’t let anyone take advantage of you. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Lead with your ideas and present what you want to do. Your insight, charm and vision will attract the attention of someone you least expect. Support will be offered along with demands that must be met. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Try something dif-ferent or get involved in an event or activity that is unique or will bring you in contact with people from different backgrounds. Let your intuition guide you and your talents entice extraordinary people to help you advance. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Give and take will help you change your life. Don’t let the demands someone tries to put on you stand in your way. A change of loca-tion or finding a lifestyle that suits your skills, tal-ents or personality better should be your goal. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Commence doing what you plan to do instead of just talking about it. Don’t allow any-one to stand between you and your goals. A love interest is likely to have ulterior motives. Avoid someone demonstrating unpredictable behavior. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Live in the moment. Have some fun, and most of all enjoy the people you are with. Love is highlight-ed, and doing things that boost your confidence or make you feel good about the way you look should be on your agenda. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Put a little force behind what you want and you will gain respect from your friends and col-leagues. Look at your costs and your budget regarding a work or domestic project you face. An impulsive move will be required if you don’t want to miss an opportunity. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Size up your situ-ation at home and reevalu-ate your relationships with the people you deal with daily. Discuss your plans and you’ll find out quickly who wants to take part and who doesn’t. Love is on the rise. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Change the way you do things. Updating your methods and your skills will help you stay ahead of any competition you meet along the way. A change in location will result in prospects that are more interesting. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Don’t get angry; get busy. You can accom-plish a lot if you make personal changes to your image or your surround-ings. Compliments will fol-low and a romantic devel-opment will spark your interest. Don’t be afraid to make the first move. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Plan your day care-fully. Putting too much time and effort into a part-nership that isn’t built on equality should probably be reconsidered.
