By DEREK GILLIAM Columbia Countys May Day celebration had to wait a month, but Saturday the party was on. Bounce houses, inflatable water slides, hula hoops, bean-bag games and a performance stage were spread out across Memorial Stadium. The Columbia High School state champion softball team posed for pictures and danced on the stage. The original celebration was scheduled for May 4, but rain forced county and city officials to reschedule. All city and county employees received free admission to the event to recognize their hard work and dedication during storm season last year, City Councilman Zack Paulk said. By 12:40 p.m. about 50 people had arrived at the event, which was scheduled to run until 3 p.m. Last years event drew 300 or more, county recreation director Mario Coppock said. Brenda Pryce, president of the Richardson Community Center, Annie Mattox Park North Inc., which sponsored the event, said the postponement contributed to the low turnout. Haven Hospices FAM Fest and a classic car show in Wilson Park also diverted some people from attending May Day. Pryce said more people were going to show up for the flag football games at 2 p.m. Were still excited to have the event and honor city and county employees and the state champion softball team, she said.

Justin Ferguson, 36, was shot once by a deputy with a shotgun after he attempted to run past law enforcement toward neigh bors homes, the release said. Knowing the threats made by the sub ject, a deputy fired one round from his issued shotgun, striking the subject once, the release said. According to the release, the CCSO SWAT team and Crisis Negotiation Unit were on the way to 315 NW Lamar Place, but before they arrived, Ferguson attempted to run, the release said. Ferguson was awake and talking to emer gency officials after being shot. He was taken to Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville, the release said. Tom Schafer lives next door to the home where the shooting occurred. He said depu ties arrived at about 1 a.m. and talked with Ferguson for about an hour before the situ ation deteriorated. They did a very good job of trying to coax him out of it, Schafer said. Schafer said he was in bed when he heard a loud noise.

FWHS grads step out SHOOTING continued on 3A May Day event attendance down Lake City folks OK after Okla. twisters Rescheduling, competing activities cut participation in city-county celebration. By DEREK GILLIAM MOORE, Okla. Tornadoes once again slammed suburban Oklahoma City Friday, forcing Lake Citys Gentle Carousel Miniature Therapy Horses and their handlers to evacuate their lodgings just before a twister hit. The hotel they were staying at was badly damaged, but horses and handlers were unhurt, Debbie Garcia-Bengochea, education director for Gentle Carousel, said Saturday from Moore. Emergency officials set out Saturday to assess damage from vio lent storms that killed nine people as they swept through Oklahoma City and its suburbs with tornadoes, large hail and heavy rain. More than 100 people were injured. Muddy floodwaters stood several feet deep in the countryside sur rounding the metro area. Torrential downpours followed for hours after the twisters moved east, and water damage was reported at the citys airport. The storms battered a state still reeling after the top-of-the-scale EF5 tornado ripped through Moore on May 20, killing 24 people and decimating neighborhoods. Water surged hood-high on many streets, snarling traffic at the worst possible time, Fridays evening commute. Even though several businesses closed early so employ ees could beat the storm home, highways were still clogged with motorists worried about a repeat of the chaos in Moore. Thirty minutes before five torna does touched down Friday, Magic and two other miniature therapy horses calmly ate hay and carrots in the back of a trailer heading south on Interstate 35 and away from the storms. Garcia-Bengochea said the ani mals were not disturbed by the tornado sirens. They were not even bothered because they hear ambulances at hospitals all the time, she said. ... You cant have therapy horses that get stressed out. Garcia-Bengochea, along with her husband Jorge and several Therapy horses, handlers there to comfort victims of earlier deadly storms.

ST. PAUL, Minn. B ack from his part-time home in Mexico, former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura dangled the idea Friday that he could run for the U.S. presidency in 2016. Ventura eagerly volunteered the possibility while at Minnesotas Capitol and pushed back against skepticism that he would re-enter the political fray after being out of office since 2003. Its hardly the first time the pub licity savvy Ventura has broached the idea he would run for the White House or Senate, only to pass on a campaign. He said the next race is an oppor tune time for an independent like him to run because there will be no incumbent. He said hes approached radio shock jock Howard Stern about being his running mate, and Stern expressed interest. An email message seeking com ment from Sterns agent was left Friday night by The Associated Press. The key to this next election I think will be a candidate who doesnt belong to a political party and who has the ability to rise above the mainstream and get the press, which Ive never had a problem doing, Ventura said. He said he would run on an antiwar platform, and his first act would be to close the military prison in Guantanamo Bay and return the naval base to Cuba. Judge, like jury, sides with Trump CHICAGO Tally another big win for billionaire Donald Trump in his legal battle with an 87-year-old who claimed The Apprentice star cheated her in a skyscraper-condo deal. A judge in Chicago sided with Trump Friday on two outstanding allegations, following last weeks related civil trial in which jurors also gave the nod to the real estate mag nate. In her 38-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve agreed with Trump that Jacqueline Goldberg was a sophisticated investor who could not plausibly claim to have been duped. The Evanston woman alleged Trump promised her profit sharing if she bought two condos at the glitzy Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago, but said he reneged after she committed to buy. But Goldberg signed a contract giving Trump rights to withdraw the offer, and Goldberg had plenty of time to cancel the purchases without penalty, the judge concluded. The case stemmed from a lawsuit filed by Goldberg in 2009. One Direction impostor targeted girls online WATERBURY, Conn. A 45-yearold man in Connecticut is accused of posing as a member of the popular boy band One Direction to entice young girls into performing sex acts online. The Waterbury RepublicanAmerican reports John Eastman appeared in court Thursday on charges including first-degree possession of child pornography, employing a minor in an obscene performance and using a computer to entice a minor. According to an arrest warrant, Eastman used the screen name Harry.Styles888 on Skype and had pictures of the One Direction singer on his computer, which were used to convince children he was the 19year-old Styles. My hope is that the girl will show me herself on camera and then pose in a sexual manner, or perform some kind of sex act for me to see, Eastman told detectives, according to his arrest warrant.

Rick Scott on Friday signed a bill that removes the ability of state regula tors to challenge health insurance rates for a twoyear period. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson had called for the bill to be vetoed, saying the legisla tion was unconscionable. The GOP-controlled Florida Legislature passed the bill (SB 1842) in response to President Barack Obamas federal health care overhaul. The bill is designed to bring state insurance codes into harmony with the federal law. The insurance bill was one of four bills signed by the Republican governor. Another repeals a state law that requires gasoline to be blended with up to 10 percent ethanol. Scott said in a bill-sign ing message he supported the decision by lawmak ers to remove rate review for 2014 and 2015 while the federal law is imple mented. The removal of rate regulation is not for all health insurance plans but for those not grandfathered in under the new federal law. Rates for new plans will be reviewed by the same federal government that will be enforcing and updating the new rules and regulations through out this very fluid and uncertain transition peri od, Scott wrote. Nelson, a Democrat who is being pushed to chal lenge Scott in next years governors race, con tended in his veto request that legislators removed state rate regulation in order to blame the health care overhaul if rates go up. Nelson was the states insurance commissioner before he ran for the U.S. Senate. Killers execution moves forward TALLAHASSEE A man convicted of killing two women and leaving a third woman for dead is once again scheduled for execution. Gov. Rick Scott on Friday rescinded a tempo rary stay for 49-year-old Marshall Lee Gore, who is scheduled to die by lethal injection on June 24. Scott order the stay last week after Gores attorneys claimed he was insane. The governors office reports that a three-doc tor commission deter mined Gore was mentally competent and could be executed. Gore killed Susan Roark and Robyn Novick and attempted to kill Tina Coralis in early 1988. Roarks body was found in Columbia County, and Novicks body was dis covered in Miami-Dade County. Two days after killing Novick, Gore attacked Coralis and left her for dead near where Novicks body was found. Man acquitted for killing wifes lover TAMPA A jury acquitted a 70-year-old Tampa Bay area man charged with killing his wifes lover Thursday, agreeing with his argu ment that he fired because he thought she was being raped. Retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Ralph Wald awoke in the middle of the night in March and walked in on his wife having sex on the living room floor. He fatal ly shot 32-year-old Walter Conley in the stomach and head. But it turns out his wife, 41-year-old Johnna Lynn Flores, was having an affair with the victim. Prosecutors argued that Wald, who suffered from erectile dysfunction, killed Conley in a jealous rage. But Walds attorney invoked the so-called stand your ground law, saying Wald had no duty to retreat when facing a threat in his own home. Wald testified that he loved his wife and still hoped to save his mar riage. He was acquitted of second-degree murder as his wife cried tears of joy. She said they planned to go to the Waffle House to celebrate. The jury only deliber ated two hours, but the testimony during the past two days at times seemed ripped straight from tab loid headlines as attorneys focused on Walds sexless marriage, Flores alleged drinking problem and lurid details of the killing. Man accidentally electrocuted LARGO Authorities are investigating the death of a Largo man who was electrocuted while doing electrical work in his attic. Pinellas County depu ties and the Largo Fire Department responded to the scene Friday evening after receiving a call from the victims wife. Andrzej Drapala was found with burn marks on his hands and chest. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Deputies say the death appears to be an accident. His wife told authori ties she tried calling for him and when he did not respond, she climbed to the attic and found the 45-year-old Drapala unre sponsive. The investigation is con tinuing. Man sentenced for manslaughter JACKSONVILLE A Jacksonville man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for killing his daughters boyfriend has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge to avoid a life sen tence. A Duval County judge sentenced 41-year-old Carlos Maurice Dupree on Thursday. As part of a deal with prosecutors, Dupree pleaded guilty in March to manslaughter with a weap on. He had been set to go on trial for second-degree murder. Authorities say Dupree confronted 18-year-old Garcia Eugene Bannister in March 2012 because Dupree felt the younger man was disrespect ing him. Witnesses say Dupree punched Bannister and then stabbed him with a butcher knife in the abdomen.

Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, JUNE 2, 2013 3AWoman injured in SR 247 wreckFrom staff reportsThe Columbia County Sheriff’s Office has been contacted by several citi-zens about phone calls they received soliciting donations for the sheriff’s office. The caller repre-sents the Fraternal Order of Police from Jacksonville, and claims funds collected will be given to the sheriff’s office. “This is completely false,” a CCSO news release says. “The FOP is a labor organization representing individual law enforcement officers.” The Florida Sheriff’s Youth Ranches and the Florida Sheriff’s Association are supported by the CCSO and some-times CCSO will solicit on their behalf by mail, but never by phone, the release said. Oklahoma-based volun-teers, had just finished vis-iting children affected by the May 20 tornado when they got notice new torna-does were coming. Garcia-Bengochea said they didn’t unload the hors-es at the farm where they’d been keeping them near their hotel. Instead, they went to their hotel with the horses still trailered. When the tornadoes started head-ing their way, they jumped on the interstate and went in the opposite direction. Lake City-based Gentle Carousel had recently returned from Newtown, Conn., but headed to Oklahoma after someone called and invited them to take their horses to Moore to help comfort survivors. Garcia-Bengochea said the hotel where they stayed was unprepared and didn’t seem to have a disaster plan. “They just had people pull mattresses into the hallway to cover up with,” she said. Garcia-Bengochea said she saw the storm sweep-ing into the area from the interstate. “What you see is really low dark clouds and rain and hail,” she said. “... It was really black.” She said all the hotels in Oklahoma City are full because volunteers from across the country flooded into the city to aid victims of the May 20 tornado. Those whose homes had been destroyed took any other available rooms. After the second tornado strike in less than two weeks, Garcia-Bengochea said, residents of the area “looked shell-shocked.” Before Friday’s twisters, Gentle Carousel had vis-ited with some of the children who had been in the school that was struck by the massive EF5 tornado. At one point Gentle Carousel staff members read a book that asked 600 children and adults to talk and share their feelings, Garcia-Bengochea said. The book asks listeners to raise a hand if they feel happy. It then asks them to raise a hand if they feel sad. One young boy raised his hand and said he was very sad. Garcia-Bengochea said she told him that he would get extra hugs and kisses from the horses. “We were getting ready to leave and he said, ‘I’m a little happier now,’” she said. The tornadoes may have ended the organiza-tion’s plans to stay longer. There’s no place for them to keep their horses and no place for them to sleep, she said. She isn’t sure when they will return to Lake City. “It’s a tough situation,” she said. Garcia-Bengochea said the nonprofit organiza-tion does not chase trag-edy. She said they pick where they visit carefully, and make sure community organizations want them there. “It has to be a fit for our horses,” she said. “... That’s important to us that it’s by invitation.” She said Gentle Carousel was invited to go to Boston after the Boston Marathon bombings but had to decline because of a lack of funding and because Gentle Carousel special-izes in helping children. She said the trip to Oklahoma was not budget-ed and finances limit how often they are able to make out-of-state trips. But when Moore reached out to the orga-nization after the May 20 tornado, she said she couldn’t refuse. “There are some calls that you get that you just can’t say no to, and this was one of them,” Garcia-Bengochea said. The Associated Press contributed to this story.

Taylor’s father, Toby Kimmel, was driving to the school to pick up his first-grader when he saw the tornado destroy the school o n May 20. By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comA Branford woman was ejected from her car after she lost control of the vehicle and it overturned several times on State Road 247 Saturday morn-ing. She landed in a ditch and the car landed on top of her, Florida Highway Patrol officials said. Carrylon A. Jones, 19, was airlifted to Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville. She was able to tell troopers the rea-son she lost control of the 2001 Buick was a “vehicle defect,” Tracy Hisler-Pace, FHP public affairs officer, said. Pace said the car had just passed County Road 242, heading south on SR 247, when the crash occurred. Jones was not using her seat belt, Pace said. Pace said the reason the vehicle did not crush Jones was that she landed in the ditch. Columbia County Fire Rescue arrived at the scene at about 9 a.m. They were able to remove the car and Lifeguard Ambulance employees treated Jones while waiting for a heli-copter. Randy V. Carter, 23, of Live Oak, was the only passenger in the car. He was using a seat belt. He was not critically injured and was walking after the wreck. Pace said FHP was investigating the crash and charges were pending. “I heard a boom, and I thought it was a transform-er blowing up,” he said. “Deputies told me they had neutralized the situation. That never sounds good.” Schafer said deputies were all up and down the street, and Sheriff Mark Hunter was at the scene. Jason Coon, 20, lives across the street from where the shooting occurred. He said he heard more than one voice on the porch when deputies arrived at the mobile home. Coon said he saw three men on the porch during the incident. He said he heard deputies yell and someone yell back profani-ties. “There were three people in the mixture,” Coon said. Coon said he saw one person put in handcuffs, one taken out on a gurney and he didn’t know what happened to the other man. Coon’s roommate, Joe Van Sise, said he also saw deputies put a man in hand-cuffs. “I seen them handcuff the guy. He was leaning over the car. He had a black wife-beater (tank top) on. They emptied out his pock-ets, and then they brought him to another car down there, and that was after they brought the gurney out. So, I know it wasn’t the dude that got shot because they aren’t going to hand-cuff a guy that got shot by a shotgun,” Van Sise said. Hunter asked the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate the shooting to ensure transparency, the news release said. The deputy who fired on Ferguson was not identi-fied in the news release. The deputy was placed on administrative leave, as required by sheriff’s office procedures, the release said. Sgt. Ed Seifert, CCSO public information officer, could not confirm or deny the number of people on the porch early Friday. He said the sheriff’s office would not comment until the FDLE investigation is complete. An update on Fergsuon’s condition was not available Saturday.

One of those would be to make the event free. The admission fee Saturday was $5. He also said the city and the county should partner with local businesses. “I know we can do it,” he said. “It’s just a mat-ter of (the city and the county) continuing to work together.” Phone solicitations not endorsed by CCSO 3A Outstanding Leader of Inpatient TherapyOur therapy program is designed to rehabilitate individuals back to their highest level of independence and functioning.

P aul Volcker is Washington’s all-purpose troubleshooter, the guy presidents turn to for solving economic problems no one else wants to touch. He was a persuasive voice in one of President Richard Nixon’s more controversial decisions: taking the United States off the gold standard. Volcker strongly endorsed the move. Modern U.S. political history is full of Volcker Commissions, including one that was charged with recovering the Swiss bank accounts of Jews killed in the Holocaust. He became chairman of the Federal Reserve Board in 1979, when the nation faced ruinous double-digit inflation. Through blunt-force economics, he broke the back of inflation, one of the few economic ills that haven’t greatly troubled us since. He stepped down in 1987. From 2009 to 2011, Volcker led a panel of economic advisers charged with devising ways to get the country out of the recession. During legislative attempts to pre-vent another Wall Street meltdown, he successfully lobbied for the “Volcker Rule,” which limits specu-lative proprietary trading by com-mercial banks. As a semi-private citizen -Volcker is never far from the cen-ter of government -he has argued for deficit reduction and tax reform in terms that are apparently too sensible for the current state of U.S. politics. He has been a longtime advocate of -and, yes, headed commis-sions on -reforming the presi-dential-appointments process. He argues, persuasively, that too many presidential appointments require Senate approval, that there are too many political appointees in gen-eral and that the vetting process is too long and complicated. Now, at age 85, he’s “finished with commissions,” he says. Instead, he’s taken on another chal-lenge with the Volcker Alliance, a new group whose mission is strengthening government. He thinks public administration has fallen out of favor in major universi-ties and generally is poorly taught by people who lack “the confidence to know what they’re teaching. “This is a profession that needs shaking by the neck,” he said in a Q-and-A with The Washington Post. Volcker has from time to time styled himself “the patron saints of lost causes.” Let’s hope that restor-ing pride and professionalism to public service isn’t one of them. W e have always admired the folks at Gentle Carousel Therapy Horses, who trav-el the nation’s roads bring-ing comfort to children and others who’ve suffered immeasurable loss. They were at Newtown, Conn. in the wake of the shootings there, and, most recently, in Moore, Okla. after the May 20 twister that left 24 dead. Friday night they almost became victims themselves, as is recounted on today’s front page. When asked whether their brush with death would in any way dissuade them from their ongoing mission to bring com-fort to those who need it most, Debbie Garcia-Bengochea, education director for Gentle Carousel, replied, not in the least. A lack of funding is the only thing that can slow them down. We salute the folks at Gentle Carousel, not just for their selfless devotion, but for their courage as well.

BY EMAIL: Lake City’s WW II blackout I f younger Americans think our country’s victory over Germany in World War II was a breeze, they are wrong. The beginning of World War II was a dangerous, nervous time for Americans, especially for those of us living on the Atlantic coast. German submarines were prowling East Coast waters. Several attempts were made to land Nazi spies on our shores, including one attempt at Jacksonville Beach. Regularly, our ships trying to transport supplies to war-torn England were sunk, and their debris was washed ashore up and down our eastern coast. Lake City took war threats seriously and even had periodic govern-ment-sponsored “blackout” practic-es where the town went completely dark. One long, loud siren warned of the beginning of the blackout and each person was to follow these instructions: • If driving, park your car at once and turn off your lights. Get indoors and stay indoors. • Turn out all lights in homes and stores. Stay away from win-dows. Stay calm. Do not panic. • Stay indoors until the 2 minute “all clear” signal sounds.” The government warned in various handouts, “This blackout is not ‘play.’ It is serious business. These procedures may save your life when the emergency is finally upon us.” “Successful practices prove that you are ready WHEN (capitals mine) air invasion comes.” These orders came from local officials Hicks Griffin, Chairman, Columbia County Council of Defense, and Carl Allison, Chairman, Division of Civil Protection. Most citizens knew the dangers might be real and co-operated 100 percent.MORE ONE-NAMERSAfter I wrote the column on people known by one name only, Bill Lipthrott called and said he felt that three more should be added to the list: Herman (Hartley), Buck (Hill) and Weegie (Lawrence). Several wondered how I could have left Alfonso (Levy), Isadore (Williams), and Bo (Hendrick) off the original list. Others said if you included “titles,” Mr. Mont (James Montgomery) and Coach Anders (Richard Anders) should be listed. Still others said that if you included initials, P.D. Cason, P.A. Browning and J.L. Markham would make the list. Do you have still other suggestions?ONE SMART DOGDo you have a smart dog and want it awarded a university degree? You’re in luck! Rochville University will be glad to help for under $500 and a precedent has already been set. According to, two years ago Rochville awarded a Masters Degree in Business Administration to their mascot, a dog named Chester Ludlow, for a fee of $499. Evidently Chester was a good student. His ‘transcript’ showed his GPA (Grade Point Average) was 3.19. In addition to his MBA diplo-ma, he received a ‘Certificate of Distinction’ in finance, and he was a member of the Student Council. Two cautionary notes. First, the $499 fee does not include cap and gown. Second, your dog should not try to find professional level work in Oregon, Michigan, and Texas as those states have classi-fied Rochville as “an unacceptable institution for credentialing”, “a non-accredited degree supplier”, and “an illegal supplier of education creden-tials”, respectively.PASTOR’S SURPRISEOne Sunday, a minister gave his usual morning sermon, but this particular Sunday, his message was considerably longer than normal. Afterwards, a man shook the minister’s hand at the door and said, “Pastor, your sermon today was simply wonderful so invigorat-ing and inspiring and refreshing.” The elated minister broke out in a big smile, only to hear the man add, “Why I felt like a new man when I woke up!” Q Associated Press HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY Risking it all to help kids cope with tragedy Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service.Paul Volcker, a genuine Washington wise man Dale Morris WilliamsPhone: (386) 755-8183williams_h2@firn.edu372 W.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY JUNE 2, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 By TONY BRITT Florida Gateway College has been recognized as one of 11 charter Florida College System institutions for excellence in manufac turing education by the Manufacturing Institute. The Manufacturing Institute made the announcement Thursday through the Florida Department of Education. Eleven Florida College System institutions made the M-list, making Florida the national leader with the most schools on the list. The Manufacturing Institute is the 501(c)(3), non-partisan affiliate of the National Association of Manufacturers. The Manufacturing Institute is the leading research, edu cation, workforce and ser vices group supporting US manufacturers. We are honored to be named to this list, said Troy Roberts, FGC public information coordinator. Florida Gateway College recognizes the importance of occupation programs such as welding and logis tics and that they are vital to a strong economy. The manufacturing field, which includes profes sions like welders, machin ists and transportation, distribution and logistics workers, requires a highly skilled workforce. The Manufacturing Institute created the Mlist to recognize high schools, community col leges, technical centers and universities that orga nize coursework around industry standards. The list also recognizes schools for ensuring students earn credentials endorsed by the National Association of Manufacturers. The 11 Florida College System institutions includ ed on the Manufacturing Institutes M-list were: Brevard Community College Broward College College of Central Florida Florida Gateway College Florida State College at Jacksonville Hillsborough Community College Pensacola State College Polk State College St. Petersburg College State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota Tallahassee Community College FGC makes manufacturing groups list By TONY BRITT The Columbia County Economic Development Department Advisory Board is promoting a plan for the city and county to join forces to address infrastructure needs at a number of locations, including a site north of town marked for future industrial development. The Bell Road project originated due to Department of Transportation funding to connect U.S. 41 with U.S. 441 north of town in the Five Points area, near Intestate 10. Bell Road is currently a dirt road and will be paved with the use of DOT and Columbia County funds. The plans have been in the works for at least five years. The DOT is rather excited about the project in that it provides an alter nate transportation corridor should something happen on the north end of the county, said Jesse Quillen, county economic development director. Quillen said with the Target Distribution Center being in the immediate vicinity of Bell Road, there is a possibility for additional industry locating there. On the west side, Norfolk Southern rail line is adjacent to the property. So, its conceivable to think development could occur there, as well, he said. The DOT has set aside more than $1 million in its 2014 budget for the paving project, and work is expected to begin in early 2015. Its a cost-share project between Columbia County and the DOT, Quillen said. The countys portion is roughly $1.2 million, and I think the DOT has a similar amount set aside for this program. The total cost is estimated to be somewhere around $2.5 million. The advisory board wants the city and county to share costs to provide water and wastewater services to the Bell Road area. Quillen said there have been some conversations with city officials, as providers of water and wastewater services, to coordinate with the county and DOT so the infrastruc ture is put in place about the same time as the paving is done. The infrastructure is expected to cost an additional $1.5 million. There have been some conversa tions that (the project) would also be cost-shared, 50/50 with the city and county spending an equal amount, Quillen said. Impact fee waiver up for council discussion By TONY BRITT Lake City city council is sched uled to discuss Monday continu ing the suspension of the water and sewer impact fees through the end of 2013. Council will meet at 7 p.m. Monday in council chambers at City Hall, 205 N. Marion Ave. Water and sewer impact fees were implemented by the city in 1993 for connecting to the city water or sewer system. Impact fee payments apply to both residential and nonresidential developments and are intended to defray the cost of water and sewer system extensions. As an economic incentive, coun cil adopted an ordinance on Nov. 21, 2011, to suspend impact fees for all of 2012. In December, coun cil extended the suspension until June 30. According to city documents, the waived impact fees as of May 31, total $174,150 on 74 construction permits. City Manager Wendell Johnson said city staff is recommending council continue with the suspen sion of fees. Due to a flat economy, the belief was that any monetary incentive would help to stimulate both new residential and com mercial growth by lowering the development costs, he said. The current water impact fee is $1,050 per equivalent residential unit (ERU) and the sewer impact fee is $3,120 ERU. An ERU is 250 gallons of water or sewage per day. Johnson said the cost goes up for commercial development based upon the ERU multiple, meaning how much water and sewer use will exceed that of a single-family dwelling. At this time the staff views that the suspension has produced new growth that otherwise may not have happened and that continuation of the suspended fees for a while longer may keep encouraging growth, he said. The purpose of impact fees is to defray the capital costs of new water and sewer infrastructure due to development. The philosophy is that devel opment should pay for itself and that existing utility users do not incur the costs caused by new development, Johnson said. When the economy is good as it was during 2003 to 2007, it works, and both residential and (com mercial) developers are amena ble to paying reasonable impact fees because they can expect a return on their investment. There is $699,882 currently in the impact fee trust fund. The city can use these funds to defray the capital impact costs of new residential and commer cial development, Johnson said. Thus, the temporary suspension approved by the city will have no negative impact unless the Impact Fee Trust Fund is depleted. Continuing the suspension beyond that point would result in use of annual utility fee revenues and reserves, which would not be in the bests interest of the city, he said. In other business, council will: Hold a Community Redevelopment Agency meeting at 6:45 p.m. Review bids for pipe, pipe fit tings and fire hydrants Johnson Officials look to spur development in Bell Road paving project area Due to a flat economy, the belief was that any monetary incentive would help to stimu late both new residential and commercial growth by lowering the development costs.

Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, JUNE 2, 2013 7A7A Fort White High graduates class of 2013Diplomas presented to 126 seniors during ceremonies Friday Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKERLake City ReporterBy AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITEK ala Rinker got to be princess for a day when she walked into the stadium with her fellow Fort White High School gradu-ates and accepted her diploma — all while wear-ing a miniature crown. “Back in sixth grade, I looked at my aunt and said I want to be a princess, just once,” Rinker said. “I knew I wasn’t going to be prom queen or anything like that… So, this is how she did it. She kept her promise to me for seven years.” Rinker’s aunt, Nancy Parker, secured a min-iature “GRAD” crown to the top of Rinker’s mortar board cap for the com-mencement ceremony. “We’re all very, very proud of her,” said Kenneth Rinker, Kala’s dad. “The crown does kind of make her look like she owns the whole show.” The FWHS graduation ceremony started at 7 p.m. Friday with 126 graduating students funneling into the school stadium. Valedictorian Lucas Higginbotham and salu-tatorian Brady Wilkinson addressed the audience, along with members of the student govern-ment, including student body president Ashley Beckman, senior class president Lynce’ Stalnaker and senior class vice presi-dent Kevin DuPree. Terri Cason, senior class sponsor, was just glad everything was over. “I’m very happy and emotional. I can’t quit crying,” she said. “It’s a wonderful group of kids. There’s so much that a lot of them had to overcome to graduate — losing parents, some of them are homeless… It’s just such an accomplishment for them to be here.” Columbia County School Superintendent Terry Huddleston said the evening was a success. It was the perfect night to have the ceremony, and he knows the graduates are going to do great and wonderful things during their lives. “Ten weeks ago today, I was announced principal here,” FWHS principal Keith Couey said. “Today, a few of the students have become very close and special, and they all have become my family.” He continued by introducing the administrators, previous principal Keith Hatcher and school board members. “We all have different paths ahead of us, but we have one thing in com-mon,” Beckman said. “We all started here together… Together we left a mark on our school that will never be forgotten.” After the ceremony ended, parents and stu-dents flooded the endzone. Tears were shed, hugs exchanged, pictures cap-tured and memories made. All over the field, cap-and-gowned students posed alongside their family for photos, accepted flowers or chatted with family. Most said they would miss their friends the most, and not miss the schoolwork at all. Many were planning to attend Florida Gateway College, but some were traveling farther away, such as Stalnaker who plans to play soccer for Brevard Community College and Trey Phillips who will play football for Reinhardt University in Waleska, Ga. “All he wants to do is go to school and play ball,” said Monet Coles, Phillips’ mother. “He accomplished his goals and his dreams… It’s a major accomplish-ment, and we’re looking forward to seeing him go on to his next milestone.” The last day of high school ended much the way Stalnaker said the first day started — par-ents winding up cameras, straightening collars and wishing their children well. “When we look back on those past years, we real-ize that it went by much faster than we ever imag-ined,” she said. “I wish we could go back, but we can’t. So right now, as we are all sitting here, waiting to make the next move, just take in this moment. This is a day we will look back on for a lifetime.” Members of the Fort White High School Chorus perform ‘Ama zing Grace’ at the class of 2013 commencement exercises on Friday.

Lake City Reporter SPORTS Sunday, June 2, 2013 Section B Story ideas?ContactTim KirbySports T rey Marshall played three sports at CHS. Fort White’s Rykia Jackson competes under scrutiny. Athletes of the Year JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High’s Trey Marshall was a three-sport athlete in football, weightlifting and track. He was named the 2012 -13 Lake City Reporter Athlete of the Year. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFort White High’s Rykia Jackson, a three-sport athlete in v olleyball, basketball and track, was named Lake City Reporter Athlete of the Year for 2012-13. By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comSpeed and strength. Those two words were the first uttered by Columbia High head coach Brian Allen when asked to describe what makes Trey Marshall special. The three-sport athlete certainly used it across his array of competitions this season as a football, weight-lifting and track star. The Lake City Reporter Athlete of the Year exhib-its excellence in a number of sports and Marshall cer-tainly did that during the 2012-13 school year. The junior was part of the 11-2 Tigers football team that reached the region-al final, a member of the weightlifting team, where he reached the regional meet, and participated in track on the 4x100 relay where his team finished just short of qualifying for state for the second consecutive year. “Speed and strength are things that the kid just has,” Allen said, who also coaches him in weightlifting. “They have helped him become the player he is. Those are two words that just come to mind.” With blazing fast speed and already a state meet appearance under his belt as a sophomore, Allen asked Marshall to focus more on his strength during his junior season. Football has always come first for Marshall and that’s why he’s gathering offers from the likes of Florida, Florida State, Georgia, USC and Miami, just to name a few. “This year, the focus was more on the weight room than the last few years,” Allen said. “It’ll help him in the future to withstand inju-ries as he goes through the grind of long seasons.” What was surprising for Allen and Marshall is that even though he didn’t grind as much on the track, he actually improved his speed when he was clocked at a 4.38 40-yard dash time in the spring. “The same thing happened with Ronald Timmons last year,” Allen said. “The weight room correlated to more speed. Kids saw that and worked hard in the weight room.” Marshall was able to reach the 300-pound club for the Tigers this season by benching and power clean-ing 300 pounds. All this for a player who doesn’t even break the 200-pound barrier at 192 pounds. And he’s able to excel in all areas while still staying on top in the classroom. In fact, it may be his biggest strength. “School just comes easy for me,” Marshall said. “I do my home work and I’m able to learn what I need. I stay busy and active.” Allen believes it is something that will help Marshall to attend any college he wants on a football scholarship. “The thing is, with all this college hype, he’s able to stay humble and keep up with his academics,” Allen said. “You have to give credit to his mom. He’s in advanced placement classes By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — Some athletes wither under watch-ful eyes. Rykia Jackson excels. Under scrutiny of a dad who is the most highprofile coach at Fort White High and a mom who also coaches, Jackson had the persistence to compete in three sports. She is the Lake City Reporter Athlete of the Year for 2012-13. “I come from a pretty competitive family,” Jackson said. “My dad (Demetric Jackson) played at Florida and my mom (Kemberly Jackson) played in high school. They always push me to do my best and stay on top of things — not just sports, but with grades. I am grateful for that; it got me where I am today.” The main criterion for Athlete of the Year is par-ticipation in several sports and sophomore Jackson played volleyball, basketball and was on the track team. She also lifted with the girls weightlifting team, but did not compete in meets. “At smaller schools kids have to play multiple sports and that is the way it is here,” Mrs. Jackson said. “Academics always come first and if Rykia is making good grades she can con-tinue to play all the sports and do the other things.” Other things for Jackson include secretary of her Sunday School and vice-president of her church choir, vice-president of the sophomore class at Fort White, HOSA and Leadership. After knock-ing on the door all year, Jackson posted a 4.0 GPA in the third grading period. Jackson not only played three sports, but stretched herself as needed. Volleyball coach Tiffany Bratcher asked Jackson to learn and play libero. Libero is a defensive posi-tion and the player can only play from the back line. “In middle school and junior varsity, I was a right-side hitter,” Jackson said. “I had never played the back row as much. Coach said you are very quick and I want you to be libero. I told her whatever you see fit for me, I’ll do it. It stuck with me and I really liked it.” Bratcher said making the change was tough, but Jackson was up to the task. “Rykia has to be the most coachable athlete I had,” Bratcher said. “I gave her big shoes to fill as a libero, an area she wasn’t famil-iar with. She definitely dis-played leadership qualities from listening and taking direction, and she learned the position and communi-cated it on the court during practices and games.” Jackson was the point guard for Fort White’s bas-ketball team that was the first at the school to qualify for the state playoffs. She averaged 4.4 points and 3.5 assists per game. “Previously in basketball we never had what we had this year — the desire and want to be a new team,” Jackson said. “I never saw that before. We got togeth-er on weekends and played JACKSON continued on 3B MARSHALL continued on 3B1BSPORTS

Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, JUNE 2, 2013 3B MARSHALL: Gives credit to coaches Continued From Page 1B JACKSON: Sophomore shows leadership in sports, school, commu nity Continued From Page 1Band is taking college class-es now. He’s got a 19 on his ACT, so he’s already qualified as a junior the first time he’s taken it. Now, his senior year, he can just go out and not worry about becoming NCAA eligible. He just carries himself in a professional manner.” And his professional manner extends into the way he trains. “I’ve got hard work and dedication,” Marshall said. “I’m always working out and on the field breaking down coverage stuff and trying to better my tech-nique. We’re working out most days and doing some kind of circuit.” Marshall works out his upper body on Monday, hits the field on Tuesday, works out his lower body on Wednesday, hits the field again on Thursday and rounds out the school week with another upper body workout on Friday. But the athlete never minds the training. “It’s helping me to have more confidence,” Marshall said. “I’ve developed more speed.” But Marshall believes that his biggest area of growth left is becoming better with technique and being a stu-dent of the game. “The game is 90 percent mental and 10 percent physical,” he said. “I’m still studying film. I work on my down and distance situa-tions. I’m passionate about the different techniques. Next year, I just want to ball out and do all I can to help the team. (The col-lege stuff) I’ll put on the back burner. It’s all about winning a state champion-ship. Navarre is all I think about.” Marshall said he’ll use the loss to Navarre High, the team that beat Columbia in the football playoffs, as motivation and he learned a lesson from track about being hun-gry after falling short of qualifying for state this season. “It just didn’t seem as important, because we were supposed to make state,” Marshall said. “We didn’t put in as much hard work. We were comfort-able. Everything else is on the back burner now. My attention and focus is on state. It’s going to take a team effort. I’ll lead by example and I’ll be more vocal. I’m going to yell at guys like I’m a coach on the field.” Marshall gives credit to his coaches, especially Allen, for helping him grow into the young man he is today. “They’ve just instilled hard work in me,” Marshall said. “We are close. I see (Allen) as a father figure. I’m always up in his office talking to him. He helps me with my decisions and just reminds me that when it comes to college to take it slow if the choice isn’t clear.” Certainly if he continues to excel, Marshall will have plenty of choices. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High’s Trey Marshall was named to the Class 6A all-state football team last season. basketball. We were like a family and that is what it is all about. It helped us in the long run.” Basketball coach DeShay Harris also spoke of the coachability and work ethic of one of his team captains. “Rykia is an amazing athlete and an even bet-ter leader,” Harris said. “I could depend on her to be a leader on the court, as well as off. She is very intelligent and could take command of the team and they all valued what she had to say.” In track, Jackson threw the shot put and discus, and competed in the triple jump. She earned team points at district in all three events and missed out by one spot of qualifying for region in the discus. “I started the shot and discus last year,” Jackson said. “It was tough at first but I looked at videos over the summer on how to get the spin move. I couldn’t get the triple jump down, but now I can get in the pit and I placed at district.” Jackson was not a runner, but said she stepped in for the 4x400 relay to try for team points. “Whatever it is to make our team better, I am will-ing to do it,” Jackson said. “I have always been a team player and will continue to be.” Team is certainly what Coach Jackson is all about in football, and he keeps an eye on his daughter. He helps coach track, and works with her on basket-ball in the summer. During a game, Coach Jackson has a signal he sends if Rykia is not playing up to his standards. “My dad is always competitive and he wants me to do the best I can and I appreciate that,” Jackson said. “If I mess up, I see him in the stands and he looks at me and I know I better tighten up. It always gives me a relief and tells me to keep pushing.” Coach Jackson sees in his daughter a chip off the old coach. “Ever since she was little, Rykia has liked playing sports,” he said. “She is a girly-girl when it comes to her hair and things, but she can be as rough as any girl you have seen. The biggest thing is she loves to com-pete. She is real aggres-sive and real strong, and she loves to win. It is a natural thing for our whole family. We are all into it 100 percent.” Jackson plans to continue to excel in sports and school. “I love what I do and I want to thank God first,” Jackson said. “I want to thank everybody who has pushed me and saw something in me that I didn’t see. Without that, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.” Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterABOVE: Fort White’s Rykia Jackson was the point guard for the La dy Indians basketball team that was the first in school history to make the state pl ayoffs.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, JUNE 2, 2013 Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Columbia Highs Trey Marshall was a standout performer in football, track and weightlifting for the Tigers during his junior year of 2012-13. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter In this cutout for the Lake City Reporter Athlete of the Year photo shoot, Rykia Jackson shows her technique in the discus throw. Jackson placed fifth in the event during the district meet, one spot short of qualifying for region. Tough day for Tiger at Memorial Associated Press DUBLIN, Ohio In the swirl ing, gusting winds at the Memorial Tournament, Tiger Woods had what even he termed a rough day. Woods posted his highest ninehole score as a professional when he shot an 8-over 44 on the back nine during Saturdays third round of the Memorial Tournament. Woods walked past reporters after his round and declined interview requests. He spoke later to a PGA Tour official. The conditions were tough and when I missed it cost me, he said after completing a 7-over 79 that had him plummeting down the score board at Muirfield Village, where he has won a record five times. I caught the wrong gusts at the wrong time, made a couple bad swings and all in all it just went the wrong way. His previous worst nine-hole score was a 43 on three occasions, most recently at Quail Hollow in 2010. He wasnt alone. Playing partner Zach Johnson shot an 81. It was hard, said Johnson, who declined to discuss Woods or his play. It was very hard today. There was a lot of wind.

By TONY BRITT The Haven Hospice Attic Resale Store has been a part of the com munity for more than a decade. Through that time the store, which is operated mostly with the aid of vol unteers, has used its pro ceeds to fund local Haven Hospice programs that benefit the community. Polly Tyler, Suwannee Valley Haven Hospice teams administrator, said proceeds earned at the store are used in the Haven Hospice bereave ment program, kids camp and for different partner organizations. The Haven Hospice Attic Resale Store, 1077 US Highway 90, Suite 120 in the Gateway Plaza, is open from 9 a.m. 6 p.m. Monday through Saturdays. By the end of the summer, the store is expected to get a facelift that will provide additional operating space. Tyler said the stores permit for a renovation project was recently approved and expects renovations to begin by the end of summer. She said renovation work was scheduled because they need more space. The renovation work calls for the rear wall of the store to be demolished and reconfigured so the store has additional space for its growing inventory. They are going to dou ble their space and simply renovate because they dont have enough room, Tyler said. Were looking for it to have this flavor of having more space. We want to put more furniture in there because they have it, but we havent got the room. Carolyn Long, Suwannee Valley Haven Hospice teams volunteer coordinator, said currently there is barely enough room available in the store for patrons to shop. The store gets so many donations and it just needs to expand, she said. Its grown so much it just doesnt fit into the space where its at.

Sorry, we can’t provide individual financial advice How Many Shares?QIs there a limit to how many shares of a company can be bought? — J.L., Lake Charles, La.AYes, because companies don’t have unlimited shares. They issue a certain number when they go public via an “initial pub-lic offering” (IPO), and they may issue more later, via secondary offerings. You could buy all the shares on the market, but by doing so, your sudden demand for the shares would drive up the price. (That’s why major investors don’t like to publicize their trading, and why they try to buy gradually, in increments.) Once you own 5 percent of a voting class of shares, you’ll need to file a report alert-ing the Securities and Exchange Commission. It can be costly to buy up all of a company. Xerox, for example, has about 1.3 billion shares out-standing, and you’d need more than $10 billion to buy them all. Remember, too, that a company may have only a portion of its value in shares trading publicly. If a firm’s founder, for example, holds 60 percent or 90 percent of the company, then she still controls it. ***QI want to invest in the stock market, but I don’t have a huge pile of money. Is there some rule of thumb regarding how much I should invest when it costs me $7.99 per trade? — T.C., Canton, OhioAIt’s good to aim to spend no more than 2 percent of your investment on commission costs. So if you’re spending $8 on a trade, you should be investing at least $400. Also, if you plan to sell quickly, you might want to factor in your $8 selling commission, upping your minimum to $800.

The Suwannee Valley Haven Hospice provides services for more than 800 people annually in Columbia, Hamilton, Lafayette, Suwannee and Union counties. While the store is planning a physical alteration, Tyler and Long hopes to add more volunteers to work in the Haven Hospice Attic or with other Haven Hospice pro-grams. “We couldn’t do a lot of what we do in this area without volunteers,” Long said. “Right now there is a strong need for volunteers anywhere you look. People just are not volunteering like they used to.” Haven Hospice has several programs where volunteers are needed, including a program where a patient gets their own volunteer to check on them on a weekly basis. “That makes a big difference for somebody at the end of their life,” Long said. “They’re not a lone. They have a friend and that friend is there just for them.” Long said volunteers are also needed to go into patient homes and give the caregiver a break. “It’s a rewarding thing knowing that you’re supporting somebody that needs to take a break,” Long said. Tyler also said volunteers are needed for Haven Hospice bereavement programs. “For volunteers, we’re going to come in and teach you how to take care of people and how to support them dur-ing this journey till death,” Tyler said. “That’s a service that has such value but costs you nothing. We’re here to share with you what we know so that you can take care of your own.” For additional details on volunteering for Haven Hospice services, call 752-9191.

US economy grew at 2.4% rate in Q1By MARTIN CRUTSINGERAP Economics WriterWASHINGTON — The U.S. economy grew at a modest 2.4 percent annual rate from January through March, slightly slower than initially estimated. Consumer spending was stronger than first thought, but businesses restocked more slowly and state and local government spending cuts were deeper. The Commerce Department said Thursday that economic growth in the first quarter was only margin-ally below the 2.5 percent annual rate the government had estimated last month. That’s still much faster than the 0.4 percent growth during the October-December quarter. Most economists think growth is slowing to around a 2 percent annual rate in the April-June quarter as the economy adjusts to federal spending cuts, higher taxes and further global weakness. Still, many say the decline may not be as severe as once thought. That’s because solid hiring, surging home prices and record stock gains should keep consumers spending. Jennifer Lee, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets, said the small revision to first-quarter growth supported her view that the economy will grow a mod-erate 2.2 percent for the year, the same as last year. Still, Lee expects growth to improve to 3.2 percent in 2014, as the job market accelerates and consumers grow more confident in the economy. Consumer spending accounts for 70 percent of economic activity as measured by the gross domestic product. GDP is the economy’s total output of goods and services, from haircuts and computers to trucks and aircraft carriers. The government’s second look at first-quarter growth showed that consumer spending roared ahead at a 3.4 percent annual rate. That’s the fastest spending growth in more than two years and even stronger than the 3.2 percent rate esti-mated last month. Healthy consumer spending shows many Americans are shrugging off an increase this year in Social Security taxes that has reduced most paychecks. And more consumer demand could also prompt businesses to restock at a faster rate later this year. Business inventories grew in the first quarter but at a slightly slower pace than first estimated. That was a key reason for the small revision. A big reason that consumers have been able to withstand the higher taxes is the job market has improved. Employers have added an average of 208,000 jobs a month since November. That’s well above the monthly average of 138,000 during the previous six months. Surging stock prices and steady home-price increases have also allowed Americans to regain the $16 tril-lion in wealth they lost to the Great Recession. Higher wealth tends to embolden people to spend more. Some economists have said the increase in home prices alone could boost consumer spending enough to offset a Social Security tax increase.2CBIZ/MOTLEY


LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY JUNE 2, 2013 3C to express our congratulations to the indi viduals and businesses named winners at this years Tourism Awards Luncheon hosted at the Lake City Holiday Inn & Suites on Wednesday, May 15. Winners were announced in each of nine catego ries from nominations submitted from the members of the tourism industry in Columbia, Hamilton and Suwannee coun ties. A strong contingent of nominees made the selection process even more difficult this year. The winners are as fol lows: The Outstanding Hotel Employee was Robie Faucher of the Comfort Suites. He played a major role with his outstand ing guest relations as the hotel earned the Platinum Award in 2012 for being selected among the top 3 percent of prop erties within its brand. Outstanding Campground Employee was Ken Buchanan, who has been a vol unteer at the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park since 1978 and handles all aspects of the parks campground dur ing the Florida Folk Festival. Outstanding Management Employee was Timothy Van Skyhawk of the Holiday Inn & Suites. Although a relative new comer to the hospitality industry, Van Skyhawk is on the management team at the Holiday Inn and oversees the hotels kitchen and catering component. Outstanding Attractions Employee was presented posthumously to a longtime friend of the tourism industry in the Suwannee River Valley. Always willing to participate in a media promotion or host journalists for a familiarization tour of the Suwannee River, Wendell Hannum of American Canoe Adventures was chosen the winner in this category. Wendell passed away after a long-term illness in November of 2012. The Outstanding Agri -Tourism Partner was the Wellborn Blueberry Festival, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The event is a celebration of the blueberry harvest in our area and is hosted by the Wellborn Community Association with the proceeds of the event benefitting social, economic and physical needs of the community. Wendell Snowden, president of the Wellborn Community Association, accept ed the award on behalf of the festival. The Always There award was pre sented to Michael Tubbs, general man ager of the Fairfield Inn & Suites. Tubbs was nominated by the entire staff of the hotel for his unflappable demeanor, great Southern charm and willingness to assist staff, host sports tournaments and work closely with the TDC on a wide range of promotions and community activities. Best Strategic Partner was presented to Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. The attraction hosts more than 40 music festivals and special events annually and provides economic benefit to all facets of the tourism industry in the Suwannee River Valley. The park is always eager to provide staffing for the nearly 30 consumer tourism shows the Marketing Group exhibits at each year. In the wake of Tropical Storm Debby, the park held a fund raising concert to benefit relief agen cies serving the Columbia, Hamilton and Suwannee County area. Community Service Award was pre sented to Holiday Inn & Suites, along with general manager Rod Butler. The property and Butler are involved in more than 16 various charitable and community civic events, including the Lake City Columbia County Chamber of Commerce, Florida Gateway College concert series, Olustee Battle Festival, Christian Service Center, Another Way, Catholic Charities and many others. The Directors Award for Excellence in Tourism is selected by the TDC direc tor and staff. Instead of one winner, this year there were co-winners of the award. Chosen were Teena Peavey of Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park and Rod Butler of the Holiday Inn & Suites. Both individ uals have been of tremendous assistance to marketing efforts by the tri-county group and exhibit great enthusiasm, cooperation and energy on behalf of the Suwannee River Valley Marketing Group. Both also serve on the board of directors for the organization. Nearly 100 guests attended the luncheon to celebrate Tourism Week and hear about the benefits of having informed tourism ambassadors in all segments of the community by keynote speaker Dr. Lori Pennington-Gray from the Department of Tourism, Recreation and Sports Management at the University of Florida. Suwannee River Valley awards three VISIT FLORIDA grants VISIT FLORIDA, the states official tourism marketing agency, announced at its board of directors meeting at HoweyIn-The-Hills the awarding of grants for the 2013-14 fiscal year, which begins July 1. The Suwannee River Valley was award ed a $5,000 grant for Image Development for enhancing our image library. This grant requires a $5,000 match from the Suwannee River Valley group. We also were awarded a $2,000 grant for an edu cational program this fall to develop an ambassador program to our area. No match is required for this grant. Finally, a $2,500 Matching Advertising grant was awarded for promotion of a weddings des tination initiative and this will be matched financially by the local group. Bed Tax collections rise in March According to the Florida Department of Revenue, Local Option Tourist Development Tax (bed tax) collections were $69,003 for March of this year, an increase of approximately $2,800 from the collections total of $66,188 for March of 2012. For the first quarter of this cal endar year collections total $180,223, an increase of $4,321 over the same three month period a year ago. Meanwhile, Smith Travel Research shows occupancy in Columbia County hotels dropped 7.3% for April of this year with the Average Daily Rate being $74.00 this year, com pared to $72.04 in 2012. Total room rev enues for the four-month period are up 4.5 percent. Harvey Campbell is the executive director of the Columbia County Tourist Development Council. He can be reached at 386-7581397.

By RYAN NAKASHIMA AP Business Writer LOS ANGELES There are about 600 ver sions of Adeles Oscar-win ning song Skyfall on the Spotify subscription music service. Not one of them features Adele. Adeles label, XL Recordings, keeps her music off of all-you-can-lis ten subscription plans until download sales peter out. In the meantime, copycat artists fill the void, racking up royalty revenue, often before customers realize theyve been listening to someone else. Alice Bonde Nissen found that out the hard way. She once paid 99 Krone ($17) a month for Spotifys premium service in Denmark. Bonde found a version of Skyfall and mistakenly clicked on a follow button to become a fan of GMPresents and Jocelyn Scofield, the name for a cover-song specialist with some 4,600 Spotify fol lowers. Scofield, who didnt respond to a message seek ing comment for this story, has the most listened-to cover of Skyfall on the service. When I found out ... that I couldnt find the original Skyfall (and some other hits) I decided to quit Spotify, Nissen says. Thousands of cover songs crowd digital music services such as Spotify and Rhapsody and listeners are getting annoyed. The phenomenon threatens the growth of these services which have millions of paying subscribers and could hold back the tepid recovery of a music indus try still reeling from the decline of the CD. Streaming services put a world of music at listen ers fingertips with millions of tracks, everything from the latest pop hits to ageold violin concertos. For a flat fee usually about $10 a month in the U.S. users can listen to as many songs as they wish. The music resides on the providers servers and gets transmitted, or streamed, to subscribers as they lis ten on smartphones, tablet computers and PCs. The services allow users to store songs on their devices as long as they keep paying.

By TAMARA LUSHAssociated PressORLANDO — If there’s ever been a summer to visit a theme park — or two, or three — this is it. High speed wooden roller coasters? Thrilling, sense-assaulting rides? Penguins? Yes, yes and most definitely.In Orlando alone, four of the area’s big parks — Disney, Universal, Legoland and SeaWorld — have opened, or are about to open, new attractions. Cedar Point in Ohio unveiled a new roller coaster a few weeks ago and in Las Vegas, a $50 million water park debuted on Memorial Day weekend. In California, visitors to Disneyland can meet all of the Disney Princesses in one place. Elsewhere in the Golden State, four different parks boast new roller coasters. “Wherever you live, that park is likely to have something new,” said Jeremy Schoolfield, the senior editor of Funworld Magazine, the trade publication for the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA). “There’s lots of innovations, what we call immersive experiences.” There’s been an onslaught of new attractions in Orlando in recent months. Back in December, Disney World opened a newly expanded Fantasyland, the largest project in the park’s 41-year history. There are two sections: Enchanted Forest, where visitors will find Belle from “Beauty and the Beast” and Ariel from “The Little Mermaid,” and Storybook Circus, which is inspired by the Disney film “Dumbo.” A new ride called Under the Sea-Journey of the Little Mermaid and Enchanted Tales With Belle, a walk-through experience that features a magical mirror and cos-tumed characters, will impress movie lovers. And the popular LIFE Sunday, June 2, 2013 Section D I t was called Fattoria Poggio Alloro. These three words mean farmhouse, knoll and laurel (as if to rest on one’s laurels). It is a farmhouse restaurant in the hills of Tuscany just outside the village of San Gimignano. It only took about 20 minutes to get there. Not only is it a fam-ily-operated farm, but they also have their own wine label and it’s a bed and breakfast, too. Its history dates back to 1955, when the three Fioroni brothers migrated to Tuscany from the Marche region. We walked into a large room with two long tables, one in front of a big stone fireplace. The hearth was wider than the tables. We sat at the end of the table in front of the fireplace. We were part of a busload of 20-plus from this tour, but there was plenty of room for all of us. Scott and I were with Gary and Sue Towns on a shore excursion offered on our Mediterranean cruise. Our lunch was amazing! First and foremost, there were open bottles of wine already on the tables: both a white, Toscana Bianco, and a red, Toscana Rosso. We were first served brus-chetta. Our guide said it’s not pronounced the way we do in America, the “ch” should sound like “k,” It’s Italian bread (which is different than the bread we are used to because it’s made without salt). Salt was a luxury in the very early days, and the Italians learned to bake without it and used it quite sparingly. On a side note, people would use salt to pay for goods and ser-vices and often also traded with it. The word “salt” is where our word “salary” is derived from. But back to the bread, they served it with homemade olive oil. Hmmm! It was delicious and there were also extra baskets of bread on the tables. Next course was a penne’ pasta dish with roasted tomato sauce, bacon and onion. Fresh Parmesan cheese was also provided, if you chose. It, too, was very good. So rich and tasty. Select cheeses and ham (prosciutto) fol-lowed with a crisp garden salad. By this time, some of the wine was gone and empty bottles removed from the tables. I was surprised when our hosts were gracious enough to bring more bottles and replenished whatever was needed. It seemed there were a lot more red wine drinkers than there were white. We were deep in wine and stuffed full of some of the best fresh Italian food you could ask for. Lunch was topped off Fattoria Poggio Alloro is great Story ideas?ContactRobert Lake City Reporter Horsemanship for allFrom staff reportsL ake City Christian Academy hosted its annual horse show May 16. Students competed in three classes: Special equestrians, beginner riders and advanced riders. The event was held at the school. Students received tro-phies and awards in three sepa-rate events: arena race, Texas barrel weave and clover lead. The riding program at Lake City Christian Academy is composed of three separate pro-grams. The first program is the riding for the handicapped program. Students who have special needs participate in this program. The program is used for helping stu-dents with balance and agility as well as it is just plan fun. Tana Norris, academy administrator, who is a certi-fied Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International instructor, along with Jamie Cargo, who leads the horse and Pete Beaulieu, a side walker, give lessons two times a week. During the lessons stu-dents play different games on the horses to help with their specific needs. “The growth in these students this year has been amazing,” said Norris. “Students who not could mount the horse, or dismount, are doing so easily on their own. They also are riding without holding on to the saddle. To see the smiles on the students faces is priceless. It was so heartwarm-ing to see the entire school at the horse show cheering the students along. It is great to see these students have such high self-esteem.” The other program is the beginner program, which teaches students to ride independently. All of the riders began at the beginning of the year with-out prior horsemanship skills. During the horse show, they were able to participate in two of the three speed events in a fast gallop or lope.COURTESYLake City Christian Academy barn manager and horse tra iner Jamie Cargo holds the lead lines as Rebekaah Weichart rides Zoey during the annual Lake City Christia n Academy Horse Show.

They bloom prolifically for long periods, even during the summer months when most other flowers can’t take the heat. Most are quite drought tol-erant, as well. Salvias, also known as sages, bloom with flower spikes held up above the foliage. Each small flower is tubular shaped and act as a magnet for feeding butter-flies and hummingbirds. Beneficial pollinators will seek out salvia nectar and pollen to feed on when little else is in bloom. Fragrant blooms and foli-age add to the appeal of many species, also. A summer annual bedding plant sold by most garden stores is Salvia splendens. There are many colorful cultivars of this annual species including those with red, purple, salmon, pink, white and bicolor flowers. Plants grow neatly and com-pactly to about 12 inches and bloom heavily for several weeks. Deadheading, or removing faded flower spikes, will extend the bloom period of annual salvias. Perennial salvias — those that come back each year — bloom mostly in shades of blue, purple and red. Most plants are quick growing and reach heights from 1 to 4 feet each year before dying back. Although a few salvias have short bloom periods, some of the best growers in our area begin blooming in late spring and con-tinue throughout the summer and fall. A native to the southeastern part of the U.S., including Florida, is the bright red Salvia coccinea. Also known as scarlet salvia, this perennial plant usually grows to about 3 feet in height with an upright shape, and blooms from spring through fall. It can become somewhat leggy, but pruning it down partway in mid-summer will help it fill in and bush out nicely. This salvia will tolerate most soils, including occasionally wet soils. Although most salvias will grow in sun or partial shade, more shaded areas will cut down on the number of plant blooms. Even though these plants thrive in our heat, a little dappled shade during the most intense summer sun never hurt anyone, or any flower. One of my favorite perennial salvias is Salvia guarantica, par-ticularly the Black and Blue Sage. This plant has some of the largest flowers of all the salvias. The spe-cies grows to about 3 feet tall with nice dark green foliage. Dark violet flowers continually appear all season long, even in the partial shade of my garden. Salvias rarely are bothered by pests, and these are no exception. Mine are gorgeous with no addi-tional water, no fertilizer and no deadheading. That makes it the perfect lazy gardener’s plant.

Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JUNE 2, 2013 3D By Shayne Morgan and Casey Schmelz H urricane season began yesterday and runs through Nov. 30. With that said, it has already been an active year for Columbia County. There were wind events to start off the year, on top of the fact that our community is still recov ering from the effects that were felt when Tropical Storm Debby hit our county last June. And there was even seasonal flooding along the rivers that was thrown into the mix. Theres no question that Columbia County seems like it is being targeted by Mother Nature when it comes to weather events or disasters of any kind. Due to these events our residents are traveling the long, hard road to recovery. Local state of emergency Because of these experiences it is important for our residents and visitors to understand what to expect after a disaster event occurs. When we are impacted locally, the first step that has to be taken is that our local Board of County Commissioners has to declare a local state of emer gency. If this does not happen, then there is not any chance of any state or federal assistance coming our way. With that said, even if the board declares a local state of emergency, it does not guarantee that state or federal money will be com ing in. The next step is for the governors office to evaluate the situation and determine if an executive order declaring a state of emergency is required. He will look at the damage in the impacted areas throughout the state to see if the declaration is warranted. If it is, then the governor will ask the president for a federal disaster declaration. Only if a federal disaster declaration is issued, will the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) step in to help with assistance. If an event happens and you try calling FEMA, they wont know what event you are talking about because they only deal with presidentially declared disas ters. All disasters are local Because of that, it is impor tant to remember the number one rule in disaster prepared ness: All disasters are local. That simply means that your responders here in Columbia County are the first line of defense. If the situation grows to a point where our respond ers expend their resources on hand and the event continues to grow, that is when we start reaching out to our state part ners and then continue to go up the chain. Again, the only time we can expect to receive federal assis tance is once the president has issued a federal disaster decla ration. The next time that you are faced with an event or disaster that affects your home, remem ber that your first call should be to your local response agen cies informing them of the event. Columbia County acti vates a Citizens Information Center (CIC) hotline so that you can inform us if your home is damaged by a storm. The number (386) 719-7530 is only active dur ing events, and is for non-lifethreatening emergencies (For life-threatening emergencies, always dial 9-1-1.) After you have reported your damage to the appropriate authorities, next call your landlord or insur ance agent. Dont have insurance? What if you dont have insur ance? Well, multi-agency coor dination is an ongoing process, not only in our county but in the entire state of Florida. On the county level, we have iden tified the agencies responsible for responding to local events. Collaboratively, we train, exer cise and prepare for disasters year round. Even at the agency level, the very first step is per sonal preparedness. We cant do our jobs effectively if we dont have our affairs at home in order. So that is the first step that we take before a disaster hits, make sure our families are prepared. Three steps to preparedness Emergency Management and the Red Cross recommend the following three step process to preparedness: 1) Build a disaster kit with enough supplies for a minimum of 72 hours for your family and your pets. Disaster kits can be used for any disaster or per sonal event. It is also recom mended that you keep a kit in your car, so that you already have one if you are forced to leave your home in a hurry. 2) Make a plan. Disaster may strike at any time and you could very easily be separated from your family and loved ones. Establish a point for your family to meet up, a so-called rally point. Make sure all of your family knows where it is. Make sure everyone knows alternate routes out of your neighborhood, in case debris covers the road or it is flooded. Never drive through stand ing water if you can avoid it, because you dont know how deep the water might be. Turn around, dont drown! 3 ) Stay informed. Tune to local radio stations, websites, if you have power and are able to access the Internet (this has become an outlet for keeping the printed newspaper readers in touch with the latest infor mation.) Local television sta tions are another outlet to uti lize. Again, report local impacts to county emergency response personnel as soon as they hap pen. Also, be sure to follow any protective actions that may be issued by authorities. Local agencies work hard The hardest events that hit our county are the nondeclared events. These events do not get a presidential dec laration or even a state execu tive order of disaster. In those cases, the local agencies are the ones that are tasked with supporting the recovery pro cess. In general, these agencies are left trying to support these events with little additional funds from what was in their general budget. Unfortunately, due to the current state of the economy and the overall decline in donations to these nongovernment organizations (NGOs), the needs often out weigh the available resources. Columbia County Emergency Management and the North Central Florida Chapter of the American Red Cross ask you to please be prepared year round. Hurricanes and severe weather dont pay attention to the calen dar and can happen at any time during the year. If you need further informa tion, please visit either of our websites, or the county emergency manage ment page www.columbia And remember, assistance is not always around the corner Assistance isnt always around the corner Shayne Morgan is Columbia County emergency management director.

TRAVEL: In Tuscany Continued From Page 1D with dessert that consisted of a light chocolate mousse with a cinnamon and sugar pastry stick for dipping. And of course, there was more wine to accompany dessert. We finished by taking a walk out back and looking over the hills onto the town of San Gimignano, where we had just come from. The views were breathtak ing, absolutely picture perfect! It definitely was as advertised and exceed ed all of my expectations when I thought about Tuscany and all it has to offer. What an experience! Once in a lifetime. Sandy Kishton is a free lance travel writer who lives in Lake City. Contact her at 80-year-old scales Everest By ELAINE KURTENBACH Associated Press TOKYO The 80-yearold Japanese mountaineer who last week became the oldest person to reach the top of Mount Everest says he almost died dur ing his descent and does not plan another climb of the worlds highest peak, though he hopes to do plenty of skiing. Yuichiro Miura, who also conquered the 29,035foot peak when he was 70 and 75, returned to Japan on Wednesday looking tri umphant but ready for a rest. He was sympathetic toward an 81-year-old Nepalese climber who on Tuesday abandoned his attempt to climb Everest, and break Miuras record, due to worsening weather. Min Bahadur Sherchan, the Nepalese mountain eer, faced difficult odds due to the brief climbing window remaining after delays in getting funding for his own ascent, Miura said. He is to be pitied, said Miura, who had downplayed any talk of a rivalry. Sherchan became the oldest Everest climber in 2008 at age 76 and held the record until Miuras ascent last week. The Nepalese climber said he slipped and fell just above the base camp three days earlier, hurting his ribs, so he was airlifted back to Katmandu, where he saw a doctor. He plans to try again to regain his record, per haps next year. I still have a few more years to make my attempts. I will try until I reach 84 and then quit, Sherchan said.

DEAR ABBY: We moved my elderly parents into an adult assisted-living center last year because they were no longer able to safely care for themselves or their home. They have now decided to put their house up for sale. Our problem is that sometimes when we have driven by the house to check that everything’s OK, we have found some of the neigh-bors enjoying the after-noon sitting on my parents’ front porch. The house has been shown three times, and one of the times another neighbor was in the back-yard sitting on the deck. Another time, a neighbor walked into the house dur-ing a private showing. We have been as polite as pos-sible in requesting them to please not do this. We finally told them plainly to stay off the property. But it continues. We would hate to post “No Trespassing” signs for fear that a prospective buyer may think there are problems with the neigh-borhood, and I don’t think a sign would deter these perpetrators. Any ideas on how to get them to stay in their own homes? My sisters and I are starting to think the neighbors don’t want the house to sell so they can enjoy it themselves. -FED UP IN TENNESSEE DEAR FED UP: Because of the long rela-tionship your parents may have had with these neighbors, ask them once more, firmly and politely, to stop using the property as an extension of theirs. If the request is ignored, it will be time to involve your lawyer, who will have to write these nervy people a strong letter on your behalf. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: Living in New York City, public transport is the way to travel. After picking up my 5-year-old from school, we took the train home as usual. During the ride, my son fell asleep and his head happened to rest on the arm of another passen-ger -a middle-aged man who was sitting next to us. As my son’s head rested on the man’s arm, he reacted by pushing my son’s head up violently, waking him from his sleep. Disgusted by the man’s reaction, I lost my cool and yelled at him, almost forgetting my screaming 5-year-old. Other passen-gers expressed their feel-ings, too, and the man left the train earlier than he wanted. After my boy calmed down, I had time to reflect and concluded I didn’t handle the situation cor-rectly. The other passen-gers suggested I hadn’t been assertive enough. What should I have done? -COMMUTER MOMMY IN BROOKLYN DEAR COMMUTER MOMMY: Your seat part-ner clearly overreacted to having his space invaded. But by screaming at him, you escalated the situation. So your little boy wasn’t caught in the crossfire, it would have been better to have moved your seats. If that wasn’t possible, you should have switched seats with your son so he wouldn’t be near that vola-tile individual. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make love; not war. Keep your emotions in check and unleash your creative imagination. Focus on information and self-improvement projects along with doing some-thing to help others. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Discuss your plans, but don’t let emotions interfere with how you proceed. Participate in events or activities that will expose you to different cul-tures, beliefs or lifestyles and you will gain insight. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your diverse way of looking at each situation you face will appeal to the people you encounter. Love is mounting, but an emotional incident is likely to cause anguish if you are too flirtatious or send a mixed signal regarding your feelings. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Carefully pick and choose what you do and whom you do it with. A disagreement will disrupt your plans or cause a falling out. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Try something new or visit a destination that offers you something you’ve never experienced before. Love is on the rise, and spending time with some-one who shares your inter-ests will encourage you to be more versatile in the future. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Common sense will be required along with patience, tolerance and conservative action. You cannot help everyone, but you can avoid being caught in someone else’s mistake. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Listen to your inner voice, not what someone tells you or wants you to believe. Separate fact from fiction and be straightfor-ward regarding your feel-ings and what you want to pursue. Love is in the stars, but ulterior motives are present. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Go over your personal papers and take a look at your recent financial transactions. A joint money venture may show some discrepancies. 3 stars SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Get out and enjoy spending time with friends, family or people who share your enthusi-asm. An adventure will motivate you to take on a new project or to engage in a partnership with some-one who compliments your assets. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Accept the inevi-table. Making an impulsive move or trying to stop someone else from doing so will prove to be difficult. Find a unique way to help others and you will avoid being dragged into a situ-ation that can hurt your reputation. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Get busy fixing up your home or entertaining friends. Do something that will boost your confidence. Self-improvement mentally, physically or emotionally can be achieved. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Attend an event or take part in an activity that is informative or will bring you in touch with interesting people.

6D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JUNE 2, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 By GENARO C. ARMASAssociated PressGETTYSBURG, Pa. — The commemoration of this year’s milestone anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg will include amenities that soldiers would have relished 150 years ago. A groomed path to the top of Little Round Top. Expanded cellphone cov-erage. Dozens of portable toilets. The National Park Service and a cadre of community organizers are busily put-ting the finishing touches on preparations for the commemoration of the piv-otal battle of the American Civil War that cemented this small Pennsylvania town’s place in U.S history. Tens of thousands of visi-tors are expected for a 10-day schedule of events that begin June 29. “I think we’re ready,” Bob Kirby, superintendent of Gettysburg National Military Park, said in a recent interview “We’re ready for what the world would like to see.” But that doesn’t necessarily mean just flooding the historical 6,000-acre battlefield, and surround-ing town, with the mod-ern comforts of home. To help visitors better under-stand what happened at the Battle of Gettysburg on July 1-3, 1863, the National Park Service first decided to look back. There were about 51,000 casualties — historical estimates put the total dead around 7,500 — at Gettysburg, considered a major turning point of the war after Northern forces turned away a Confederate advance. In the years and decades that followed, natural and man-made changes altered the landscape The Home Sweet Home Motel that once stood across the street from a monument for Ohio soldiers just didn’t provide the right feel. The forest that had grown in the distance from a Minnesota monument didn’t accurate-ly represent the thicket-laden terrain that soldiers encountered 150 years ago. The battlefield rehabilitation process grew out of a master plan in 1999 that didn’t set the 150th anniver-sary in 2013 as a deadline — though it was a welcome and timely coincidence. The rehab work, which is mostly complete, is concen-trated on areas of “major battle action.” “You can’t ever go back in time to 1863, but you can deal with the major features so you can bet-ter understand the story,” Kirby said. Other fresh elements have been added in recent years, including an airy visitor center that opened in 2008, operated by the Gettysburg Foundation on behalf of and in part-nership with the National Park Service. It’s bound to attract scores of newcomers as well as repeat visitors. The park typically attracts 1.2 million visitors a year — a mark that park officials expect to easily exceed. Margaret Eefsting, of Grand Rapids, Mich., returned recently for a weeklong trip to tour the battlefield, just three years after her most recent visit to Gettysburg. “If it takes me all day, I will cover this battlefield,” she exclaimed as she descended the path in the process of being freshly groomed at Little Round Top. The hill was the site of fierce fighting that gained extra notoriety in the 1993 movie “Gettysburg,” which was based on the 1974 novel “The Killer Angels” by Michael Shaara.ASSOCIATED PRESSTens of thousands of visitors are expected to swarm into sleepy Gettysburg, Pa., for the 10-day schedule of events that begin June 29 to mark 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg that took that took place July 1-3, 1863. Gettysburg, Pa., readies for 150th anniversary of battle PARKS: New attractions designed to lure in more visitors t han ever Continued From Page 1DDumbo attraction is now a little less crowded, because Disney built a second, identical ride. The new spaces are built on what was once the site of the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea experience, and the expansion doubles the size of the original Fantasyland. George Kalogridis, president of the Walt Disney World Resort, said that if he were bringing his family to the park on a sum-mer day, he would begin with the Enchanted Tales with Belle experience, then check out the new Doc McStuffins segment at Disney Junior-Live on Stage at Hollywood Studios. Hollywood Studios is also the place to find costumed charac-ters from the Disney-Pixar movie Monsters University. “Something new in every park makes it easy to satisfy every-body in the family,” he said. Over at Universal Orlando, a 3-D theme park ride based on the Transformers toy and film brand will open June 20; a similar ride is already open at Universal’s parks in California and Singapore. The park describes the ride as an interactive, “larger than life battle” between the Autobots and Decepticons. It uses flight simula-tor technology, along with wind, heat and smoke to make the rid-ers feel immersed in the experi-ence. At SeaWorld Orlando, the Antarctica — Empire of the Penguin attraction opened on May 24. With a ride, restaurants and the penguin habitat, it’s the larg-est expansion in the park’s his-tory. The ride takes visitors through a queue, themed around a fiction-al penguin named Puck. As visi-tors make their way through the queue and ride, the temperature keeps dropping — until visitors are in 30-degree temperatures. The ride ends at the penguin habitat, where more than 250 birds live. Visitors can watch the birds frolic on shore or under-water. Park executive said that in doing research for a new attrac-tion, penguins are a big draw at parks. “As we developed this attraction, we found that adults like penguins just as much as kids, and we’ve seen adults act just like kids when they’re around them,” said Terry Prather, the vice president of park operations at SeaWorld Orlando. Busch Gardens in Tampa has two new offerings: the Madagascar Live show and three just-born rare Malayan tiger cubs. Over at Legoland Florida, the park is expanding to include a new ride and interactive play area based on the company’s popular Legends of Chima product line. The section, which is scheduled to open July 3, will include an interactive water ride called The Quest for Chi, a Lego-build-ing challenge, a 4-D movie and a meet-and-greet with costumed characters. Legoland also has a Carlsbad, Calif., outpost and in April, opened a 250-room Legoland hotel there. Visitors are greeted by a fire-breathing dragon made of 400,000 Lego bricks. Guest rooms are decorated in pirate, adventure or kingdom themes, and most items in the rooms appear as if they are built of Legos. Not to be outdone by Florida, California’s theme parks also have new offerings — mostly in the form of thrill rides. At Disneyland, the new Fantasy Faire offers all of the Disney Princesses in one place — the intricately detailed Royal Hall. Also at Disneyland, “Mickey and the Magical Map” is the new show at the Fantasyland Theater this summer. Great America in Santa Clara will have the Gold Striker, a wooden coaster that soars to 108 feet at 54 mph, opening this summer. The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk’s new Undertow roller coaster will replace the Hurricane coaster in June; it’s described a spinning roller coaster. At Six Flags Magic Mountain, the Full Throttle is billed as “the world’s tallest vertical loop” at 160 feet; that coaster will open later in the summer. Knotts Berry Farm debuts the Coast Rider this sum-mer — with 1,339 feet of track, the company says it “gives guests the feeling of riding the California coast.” Non-coastal residents also have new offerings at regional parks. Dollywood in Tennessee has opened RiverRush in the Splash Country part of the park. In the Nevada desert, a water park called Wet ‘n’ Wild has opened in Las Vegas. A Wet ‘n’ Wild had been on the Strip for 20 years but shut down in 2004. The new, $50 million water park opened to passholders on Memorial Day weekend and is open to everyone on June 3. There are 25 water slides. And in Ohio at Cedar Point, thrill-seekers will be treated to a new, $30 million roller coaster. Called The GateKeeper, the 4,164-foot track soars over the park’s entrance and winds through the park. It’s the longest winged coaster in the world, industry analysts say — which means that riders sit on either side of the track, with nothing above their heads or below their feet. The two-minute, 40-second ride features rolling flyover maneu-vers, 360-degree flips, drops, spi-rals and a gut-churning 170-foot drop. Each vehicle has four riders and each one can move indepen-dently and snake through ele-ments,” said Schoolfield. “What’s exciting about this coaster is that it’s very maneuverable.”ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTOS“Madgascar Live!” a stage show inspired by the animated “Madgascar” movie, is performed at Busch Gardens Tampa. It’s one of a number of new attractions this year at th eme parks around the country. The image of Mike Wazowski, a character from the upcoming DisneyPixar animated film ‘Monsters University,’ is projected o n the exterior of the Spaceship Earth attraction at Epcot in Lake Buena Vi sta. The 180-foot-tall light projection marked Disney Parks’ anno uncement of its “Monstrous Summer” events for 2013. 6DLIFE
