By TONY BRITT With jury selection taking longer than expected, the beginning of the Richard Franklin capital murder trial has been pushed back at least one day. The trial was originally set to begin Monday, but now can only begin Tuesday afternoon at the earliest. The trial could last nine days over a three-week period. Franklin is scheduled to be tried for the March 2012 stabbing death of Columbia County corrections officer Sgt. Ruben Thomas III. Friday was the second consecutive day proceedings lasted past 6 p.m. as Circuit Judge Paul Bryan, pros ecutors and defense attor neys tried to seat a jury. Bryan said the process, called voir dire, involves questioning of prospec tive jurors by a judge and attorneys in court. Voir dire is used to determine if a juror is biased or cannot weigh the evi dence fairly. The judge and attorneys also determine whether a potential juror ought to be excused because of knowledge of the case, acquaintance with parties, witnesses or attorneys, an occupation that might lead to bias, or a strong opposition to the death penalty. Thirty prospective jurors were inter viewed Friday, for a total of 63 over the past two days.

By TONY BRITT Columbia County fourththrough sixth-graders held their own wth their peers state wide in reading on Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test 2.0 this year, accord ing to data released Friday by the state Department of Education. However, local reading scores dipped for sevenththrough 10th-graders com pared to the rest of the state. In math, only local fourthgraders passed at a higher rate than students statewide. The passing rate for Columbia County eighth-graders was 20 points below the state aver age. Department of Education officials said that statewide, student achievement on FCAT reading increased in grades six, eight, nine and 10, with 10th-graders making the big gest gains. For FCAT math, grade four saw an increase in scores, while in FCAT science, grade five saw an increase and grade eight remained the SVTA sued for public records By DEREK GILLIAM The operator of a local web site has sued the Suwannee Valley Transit Authority and its custodian of records for withholding public records for more than 100 days.

By TONY BRITT WELLBORN L eigh Carver attended the 20th annual Wellborn Blueberry Festival on Saturday with her children, Lindsay McDaniel and Tanner McDaniel, and wont soon forget the experience. All three had sweat on their brows in the 90-degree heat, but they also had smiles on their faces from the memories they made at the festival. Weve had a great time, Carver said. We ate some barbecue, some blooming onions and we bought some crafts. This is our first time attending. Weve never been here before. It was great and a lot of fun, but it was very hot. Lindsay McDaniel, 11, said she enjoyed bungie jumping at the festival. Her brother Tanner McDaniel said he liked the vendor stands. Carver said she plans to attend next years festival with the children. Wendell Snowden, Wellborn Community Association president and vendor chairman of the 20th Annual Blueberry Festival, said the 2013 edition was one of the best. While attendance was down Friday with the threat of inclement weather, he said, Saturday was almost as good as 2012 with festival activities and events.

AROUND FLORIDA Friday: 9-21-28-37 12 Friday: 9-11-24-29-31 Saturday: Afternoon: 7-7-8 Evening: N/A Saturday: Afternoon: 8-3-6-1 Evening: N/A Wednesday: 13-19-22-44-46-52 x4 Students struggle on FCAT math, reading tests TALLAHASSEE Many Florida students continue to struggle on high-stakes tests in read ing and math, although new results released Friday showed signs of improvement for those stu dents taking two key tests needed to graduate. The state Department of Education reported that nearly half of the high school students who took the reading portion of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test did not get a passing grade. More than 386,000 students took the test. This year 54 percent of 10th-graders passed the reading test a 4 percent improvement over last year. Ninth-graders also boosted their results to 53 percent a 1 percent change. The 10th-grade FCAT reading test is crucial because students must pass it in order to gradu ate. But the slight improve ment in reading scores for high school students was offset by the news that the scores of fourthand fifthgraders taking the reading test had slipped slightly from the previous year. Sixty percent of students in those grades passed the FCAT reading test. The percentage of stu dents in grades 5 through 8 who passed the FCAT math test also declined from last year, including a substantial drop among eighth-graders. State officials, however, pointed out that scores have improved from last year on end-of-course exams required in classes such as algebra and biol ogy. The algebra 1 end-ofcourse assessment is also a graduation requirement. Some 64 percent of those taking the algebra test for the first time passed it, compared to 58 percent last year. The jump for biology was even larger as 67 percent of stu dents passed the test an 8 percent gain from 2012. Foreclosures bill signed by Scott TALLAHASSEE Florida Gov. Rick Scott, ignoring veto pleas from consumer advocates, on Friday signed two mea sures into law that could affect renters and hom eowners across the state. One bill could up speed up the foreclosure process in Florida. The other makes it easier for landlords to evict tenants. The two pieces of legis lation were among 34 bills that Scott signed. The governor also signed another heavily debated bill that would require health insurers to provide the same level of coverage for cancer treatments given orally as those drugs administered intravenously. More than 20 states have a similar law. The landlord-tenant bill comes at a time when more and more people in the state have become renters due to the foreclo sure crisis that has trou bled Florida for years. Under the new law, a tenant could pay partial rent and still be evicted within days if they fail to turn over the rest of the money. The measure would also allow a land lord to evict a tenant if a person breaks rules twice in one year. Those rules can include parking in the wrong spot or having an unauthorized pet. 2 arrested in gold bar theft MIAMI Two men are facing federal charges after the theft of a box of gold bars at Miami International Airport that investigators say appears to have been an inside job. The FBI says 47-year-old Marco Cruz of Hialeah used his position as an airport fleet service clerk to take the box containing seven bars worth about $625,000. The bars were part of a shipment of six boxes of gold that arrived May 14 in Miami from Ecuador. Authorities say the theft was captured on airport surveillance cam eras. They also say they found one stolen bar and $200,000 in cash during a search of Cruzs home. Thirty-eight-year-old Ramses Llufrio, also of Hialeah, is also charged with receiving one of the bars. Court records did not list attorneys Friday for Cruz or Llufrio. Kangaroos owner facing charges LACOOCHEE A kangaroo that was cap tured after 10 hours on the run in Pasco County has died, wildlife officials said Friday. Authorities also said they filed charges against the animals owner. The 200-pound male kangaroo was spotted last weekend in the area of Lacoochee and led depu ties on a chase that ended nearly ten hours later. Wildlife officers eventually used a tranquilizer to stop the animal. Florida Fish and Wildlife spokesman Officer Baryl Martin said the kangaroo died Sunday of cardiomy opathy or excited delirium. A combination of tranquil izer darts, the escape and traumatic capture likely played a role. Wildlife officials said Friday that the animal belongs to John Chatfield, who owns a breeding farm with more than 50 kanga roos. He has a state permit to keep the animals. Chatfield was charged with having an insufficient cage that allowed the ani mal to escape. The charge can carry a fine of up to $500 and-or 60 days in jail. Officials said Chatfield initially told them the kan garoo didnt belong to him. LOS ANGELES A n investigation into Paris Jacksons well-being has been ordered by a judge overseeing the guardian ship of Michael Jacksons three children, court records show. Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff ordered an investigator to look into Paris Jacksons health, edu cation and welfare and recommend whether any changes are necessary on Thursday, one day after she was taken by ambulance from her fami lys home and hospitalized. Authorities have said they were dispatched to the home on a report of a possible overdose, but have not released any additional details. There have been communications between the court and counsel and were completely supportive of the courts actions, Katherine Jacksons attorney, Perry Sanders Jr., said Friday. He has said the 15-year-old is physically fine and receiving appropriate medical treatment. He declined further comment on her health status Friday. Beckloff issued a similar inquiry into the well-being of Michael Jacksons three children, Prince, Paris and Blanket, last year after an incident in which Katherine Jackson was out of communication with them for several days. The Jackson family matriarch had been taken by some of her children to a resort in Arizona, prompting an agreement that led to another guardian being temporarily installed. This is standard protocol in a high profile case, his attorney Charles Shultz wrote in an email. The court is doing what we fully expected the court to do. King, Mellencamp break rules with musical NASHVILLE, Tenn. Stephen King and John Mellencamp had a simple problem when they started the long odyssey to create a musical. As Mellencamp puts it, Quite frankly, we didnt know what the hell we were doing. Thirteen years later theyve cre ated Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, a musical thats not quite like anything out there as you might expect from two of Americas most independent artists. Along the way, the author and the singer picked up T Bone Burnett to serve as a general contractor, enlisted stars like Sheryl Crow, Elvis Costello, Kris Kristofferson and Rosanne Cash. Ghost Brothers is out this week with a CD box set, mini-documenta ry and e-book, with a theatrical tour starting in October in Bloomington, Ind. Mel Brooks honored with film institute award LOS ANGELES Robert De Niro and Morgan Freeman never worked with Mel Brooks, and the Oscar winners came to a ceremony in his honor to let him know they resent it. Brooks received the American Film Institutes 41st Life Achievement Award Thursday, and Freeman and De Niro were among a galaxy of stars who paid tribute to the man behind Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein and The Producers. DeNiro asked whether there was a casting-couch process he could participate in, and Freeman quipped, Ive never even been on the same bus as Mel Brooks. Still, they thanked him for the decades of laughs. Martin Short opened the program with a song-and-dance routine set to a medley of melodies from Brooks films. The 86-year-old filmmaker also was honoted at a star-studded private dinner at the Dolby Theatre that had the energy and biting humor of a good-natured roast.

last year,” Snowden said. “I can’t say the count was the same because last year we had about 8,000 people. This year, we might have had that number but they were more spread out.” Saturday’s main events included the annual pan-cake breakfast where blueberry pancakes were sold at a trio of locations as fundraisers, the annual parade and a talent show. Several vendors set up their booths in Andrews Square and saw a steady flow of traffic throughout the day. “There were about 25 to 30 entries in the parade,” Snowden said. “Everything from floats, old classic cars to horse-back riders. There was a lot of fire (equipment) entries and a lot of sup-port from the fire depart-ment.” The parade theme was “All Fired Up,” based on Wellborn’s getting a new fire and emer-gency medical services station. Snowden cred-ited Suwannee County Commissioner Phil Oxendine and Public Safety Director James Summers for spearhead-ing the effort. “The Blueberry Festival is awesome,” Oxendine said. “It’s a big boost for the economy, especially in the Wellborn area and for Suwannee County in general. People come from all over to attend the Blueberry Festival.” Oxendine said getting the new fire station in Wellborn was important and he pushed for it hard with the help of other commissioners. “It’s probably already saved some lives,” he said. “One time we had a response time of about 22 minutes from our nearest station. Now that response time is about 4 to 5 minutes, which is a great value to the con-stituents of this area and the county.” By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comThe suspect in a credit card theft is still at large, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office news release on Friday. The suspect is described as a white male, possibly in his early 20s, with short brown hair, brown eyes, medium build and a close-cut goatee. He was seen driving a dark green 1998 or 1999 Isuzu Rodeo with a roof rack on top and running boards on each side, the release states. The vehicle is missing the front grill, has a damaged hood and no left brake light. The stolen credit card was used June 2 at three locations in town, includ-ing Murphy USA at 2659 U.S. Highway 90, Walmart and the Stop-N-Go on South Main Boulevard. Citizens can contact Crime Stoppers of Columbia County to pro-vide anonymous infor-mation at (386) 754-7099 or the Columbia County Detective Division of the Sheriff’s Office at (386) 719-7510.

Commerce Dr., Suite 130 Andrea passes without causing troubleBy AMANDA Tropical Storm Andrea swept through Columbia County with-out damage or flooding, but left behind water to replenish lakes and rivers. According to officials at the Suwannee River Water Management District, the county received 3 inches of rain between Monday and Friday. Hydrologist Megan Wetherington said that is half the expected amount of rain for June. Total rainfall for 2013 is at 21 inches, slightly less than normal, she added. The Santa Fe River should be out of flood stage by Monday. Until then, children should be kept away from the river due to fast-moving currents. The National Weather Service forecasts a 60 percent chance of rain today, and a 50 percent chance for Monday. “Technically, we are not in a drought,” Wetherington said. “We haven’t been in a long-term drought since last year’s tropical storm, but we’ve definitely had some dry months.” Shane Morgan, Columbia County emergency management director, said the storm wasn’t as bad as what local officials pre-pared for. He anticipated heavier winds and rain, but there was no reported damage or flooding. Based on information from the National Weather Service in Jacksonville, Morgan was ready for wind gusts up to 60 mph. “The storm was moving so fast that no one expected it to be like Tropical Storm Debby,” Morgan said. Rain recharges the aquifer, but Florida is in a long-term decline of groundwater, according to Robert Knight, director of the Howard T. Odum Florida Springs Institute. “The only way to get back to previous levels is to have more rain, and, of course, to pump less,” Knight said. “One rainy month won’t make a difference.” JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterExtension office relocatingStaff members at the Columbia County Cooperative Extension pack up for their move to new offices the county has lea sed at the Duval Place building, 971 W.

SUIT: Records wanted Continued From Page 1Ato produce the requested records and pay attorney and court fees, as required by law. Gwendolyn Pra, administrator for SVTA, is named in the lawsuit because she is the custodian of records, the lawsuit said. On Jan. 15, Lilker emailed William Steele, operations manager for SVTA, and Pra requesting public records regarding public policy, media lists, employment applications, minutes, con-tracts, employment agree-ments, advertising tear sheets, financial records and SVTA by-laws, the suit said. Steele responded by email on Jan. 15 and copied SVTA attorney Hal Airth, the lawsuit said. “I am sure that (Pra) will take your request, when received, and give your request all due consider-ation and action in a timely manner,” Steele wrote in the email, according to the suit. “... I am sure you will hear from the administrator in due time.” The lawsuit points out that Pra was emailed the original records request. “For over 110 days, the SVTA and Pra have refused to provide Lilker the public records request,” the law-suit said. Lilker’s emailed records request mentions that he sent SVTA officials infor-mation that details what the state considers public records. “You will recall that I previously sent to the SVTA Ms. Pat Gleason’s manual on Sunshine and Public Records Laws,” Lilker wrote in his public records request. “Please use it.” Lilker declined to comment on the lawsuit. Pra did not return a phone call seeking comment.

W e are glad to see the county commission acting quickly to fill the vacuum left by the demise of Florida Leaders Organized for Water, after rightly pulling funding for that group in April. The new group, not yet named, will consist of representatives from Alachua County, White Springs and Branford. In addition, The Ichetucknee Partnership, Save Our Suwannee, the Santa Fe River Springs Basin Working Group and Our Santa Fe will be offered a seat at the table. Good partners all.This streamlined structure should prove far more workable than FLOW, which let in anyone who asked – whether they shared our aims or not. Whatever the fate of this new venture, at least now we won’t be ques-tioning some members’ motives. The county commission on Friday also redirected funds that had been budgeted for FLOW, $250,000, to the new group. We have high hopes it will be put to good use.

Holmes bought the Blanche Hotel in 1923, he turned it into the social center of Lake City. The new-look, new-attitude Blanche became the center for civic club meetings, sports ban-quets, weddings, showers, and fes-tive parties. Every day at the Blanche seemed special but the Christmas season was a special highlight because of its colorful Christmas decorations. It was the place to be to fully enjoy the atmosphere of the season. O.K. Holmes was a gifted innkeeper and various governors, socialites, and celebrities stayed at the Blanche. Holmes himself once confirmed that the infamous gangster Al Capone once stayed there over-night while traveling to Miami. Wishful thinkers still hope that someday the Blanche’s guest reg-istry will be found so we can see all the names of those who stayed there. Apart from owning and managing the Blanche, O.K. Holmes was an outstanding citizen: • He was a great humanitarian who supported many worthwhile causes. • An airplane pilot who supported a Lake City airport, he bought his first plane in 1932. • A Rotarian, he received the esteemed Paul Harris Fellowship Award for exemplary service. • He served as local postmaster from 1938-1948. • He started attending the First Presbyterian Church in 1925 and served as an elder and trustee. He sold the Blanche in 1952 and afterwards the hotel seemed to lose some of its glamour. He died in 1988 in Charlotte, North Carolina, at age 89.THREE DOCTORSThree graduates of the ‘new’ Fort White High School have already received doctor’s degrees. Dominic D. DeLuca (FWHS 2002) received his Juris Doctorate degree from The Florida Coastal School of Law on May 19, 2013. Corey Stephen Wilson (FWHS 2005) received his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Florida College of Medicine on May 11, 2013. Also, Logan Todd Williams received his Doctor of Philosophy in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Tech on May 3, 2013. Logan has a strong Lake City connection. His paternal grand-parents are my sister-in-law, Sallie Rae Williams (CHS 1948) and my late brother Ernest Willard Williams (CHS 1940). Congratulations to all three. We are all so proud of you.2004 FLASHBACK• Melrose Principal Cesta D. Newman was awarded the Principal’s Award for the south-ern division of Belk Department stores. She was selected from among principals in Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina. • Andrew Harlow (CHS 1988) received an Emmy for “Outstanding Special Effects” for his spectacular graphics in the miniseries “Children of the Dune.” • Brittany Strickland of Columbia City Elementary won the countywide spelling bee; Isaiah Phillips of Fort White Elementary was named The Countywide Non-instructional Employee of the Year; and James Wilson of FWHS was named the Columbia County Teacher of the Year.GRADUATION ADVICE“Do your best.

On Wednesday came the revelation that the National Security Agency, described by The Washington Post as “the largest and most technologically sophisticated ... in the nation ...,” was gathering Americans’ phone records, who they called, how long they talked and any special “identifiers.” To actually listen to the conversations, though, the NSA needed a warrant from a special and secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance court, which hardly inspired great confidence since the court had apparently been routinely rubber-stamping three-month extensions of the warrant for seven years. Congressional oversight did not seem especially harsh, either, because at a hearing on the program several lawmakers seemed intent on determining, that whom-ever else NSA was listening to, members of Congress were not among them. The obvious question in the public mind: What else don’t we know? The answer was not long in coming -the next day, in fact. The NSA and the FBI, under a program called PRISM, were tap-ping directly into the servers of nine leading U.S. Internet compa-nies, vacuuming up audio and video chats, emails, photos, documents and connection logs. The companies were Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, YouTube, PalTalk, AOL, Skype and Apple. The point of the program is to identify and intercept terrorist net-works and their plots. The program began under President George W. Bush. But as even President Barack Obama’s friends have pointed out, the program has been “embraced and expanded,” as one account put it, under the erstwhile civil libertarian. The law, intelligence officials were at pains to explain, does not allow the targeting of any citizen or other person living within the U.S. -unless there’s a warrant. Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper said that “intelli-gence collected under this program is among the most important and valuable intelligence we collect, and is used to protect our nation from a wide variety of threats.” We hope he is right ..., because the threats are clearly out there.... But on the question of security versus privacy, the American people have long since made their choice. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., insists: “There’s nothing new about this program.” Actually, there is. The American people now know about it.

By CHRISTOPHER SHUMAKER Special to the Reporter Jackie Kite considers her self a cheerleader for the city known to many as the Gateway to Florida. I would absolutely say that Jackie Kite is a cheer leader, she said. Its in my blood to get behind some thing, especially if its some thing I believe in and am passionate about. As administrator of Lake Citys Community Redevelopment Agency, Kite is in charge of ensur ing projects from the citys downtown beautification and revitalization plan are completed. Lake Citys goal is to get more traffic to the downtown area, in particu lar Wilson Park on Lake DeSoto, Kite says. She is overseeing such projects as the farmers market held each Saturday in the park, a plan to beautify the entranc es to downtown and getting a pavilion built in Wilson Park. I not only make sure the tasks and projects that are in our plan come to frui tion, Kite said, but it is also part of my job to mar ket all of that, so the com munity knows what we have available right here at home to do and see. For the past 35 years, Kite has called Lake City home. Having grown up in the St. Petersburg area, she says she really appreci ates living in a small town where everybody knows one another and folks seem interested in helping their neighbors. She appreciates that the city is fairly near many of Floridas attractions yet has a lot to offer itself. We have a lot to do here, she said. It doesnt take long to get to the beach. It doesnt take long to get to Disney. We have beautiful springs, and we have things that other plac es dont. Lake City, to me, has the best of a lot of dif ferent worlds. Kite says she feels this area has helped mold her into the person she is today. My job has allowed me to come into my own, you might say. It has allowed me to blossom because it has given me the chance to have ideas, work on them and see them from begin ning to end. It has also allowed me to work with a lot of other talented people who have wonderful ideas and love their hometown as much as I do, she said. Kite still lives in the same neighborhood she did when she moved here in 1978. She loves gardening, reading, traveling, and going to the beach and river, not to mention spend ing time with her friends and family. Lake City is very impor tant to me, Kite said. Its where my husband, chil dren and grandchildren live. I have family here. Its important to me that Lake City is a healthy place to live and has things to do, just so that we keep every body close by. From staff reports The news team of the Lake City Reporter recently was honored with the Presidents Award by its parent company, Community Newspapers, Inc. The Presidents Award is the overall top news coverage honor presented among CNIs 29 newspa pers in the Southeast. The Reporter news team won the award for its cov erage of Tropical Storm Debby and its devastation in Columbia County in June 2012. The Reporter was lauded for being thor ough and informative, but also for staying with the story long after the tele vision crews and larger newspapers had gone. The continuing cov erage the Reporter gave the damage caused by Tropical Storm Debby is a prime example of the role a great community news paper needs to play, the judges said in announcing the award. When calam ity strikes, we need to be there no matter what. But as the initial attention from other media outlets wanes, we also need to be there to provide continu ing coverage of the after math and effects of the disaster. We need to be there to keep the attention focused on the needs of our community. Editor Robert Bridges praised his team for their hard work and said their efforts would continue. My staff gave every thing they had and then some. Im proud of what they accomplished, he said. This story is nowhere near over, though. Bridges said the news paper plans extensive cov erage later this month of the continuing effort to rebuild as the one-year anniversary of Debby approaches. Publisher Todd Wilson praised the newspapers coverage of Debby, as well. I want to congratulate our news team on this out standing recognition, he said. These reporters and editors are committed to our readers and our com munity every day. This honor is well-earned and I salute them. The Reporter also won the Presidents Award in 2008 for its coverage of the Bugaboo Wildfire in Columbia County. 7A WILSONS OUTFITTERS 1291 SE Baya Dr, Lake City (386) 755-7060 Remember Dad Sandals Sandals T-Shirts By Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY JUNE 9, 2013 7A TODD WILSON/ Lake City Reporter Front row, from left: Staff writer Tony Britt, editor Robert Bridges, staff writer Amanda Williamson.

By AMANDA WILLIAMSON The Columbia County School District will provide free nutritionally balanced meals to children during une and July through the Summer Food Service Program. Funded by the state Department of Agriculture, the program fed approxi mately 500 children per day last summer, and more are expected this year. The Summer Food Service Program starts Monday. During the regular school year, children receive breakfast and lunch at school, said Madonna Coughlin, direc tor of food service for the district. But learning and nutrition shouldnt end when school lets out. All children 18 and younger are eligible for the meals, a district news release said. The districts 21 meal sites are spread through out the county in areas where 50 percent or more of the local children qual ify for free or reducedprice lunch. For breakfast, the pro gram serves milk, juice and a whole-grain break fast product, such as cere al. During lunch, there will be meat and cheese sandwiches or peanut but ter and jelly sandwiches, fruit cups, raw vegetables and milk. The school district receives a reimbursement from the state for each meal served. The coun ty has been sponsoring the program since about 1996. For more information, contact the Summer Food Program hotline at 211. Meals sites include: Columbia High School, Richardson Middle School, Melrose Park Elementary School, Eastside Elementary School, Five Points Elementary School, Fort White Elementary School, Fort White High School, Lake City Middle School, Niblack Elementary School, Columbia City Elementary School, Westside Elementary School, Pinemount Elementary School, Challenge Learning Center, Career and Adult Education Center, Bethlehem United Methodist Church, Annie Mattox Recreation Center, Richardson Community Center, Hopeful Baptist Church, Olivet Missionary Baptist Church, Lake City Christian Academy and Christ Central Ministries. From staff reports Nearly half of drivers stopped in a recent safety effort were ticketed for failing to wear seat belts or not using child safety restraints, Lake City Police Department said. From May 20 through June 2, LCPD conducted 378 total traffic stops. Of those stops, 182 resulted in at least one citation, 173 resulted in warnings only, 16 resulted in arrests, and seven resulted in issuance of criminal citations. LCPD officers wrote 170 tickets total for seat belt and child restraint violations in the two-week period. As the Gateway to Florida, we ... have to set the tone for motorists enter ing the state, so they know that seat belt enforcement is a priority in this state, Police Chief Argatha Gilmore said. The penalty for a driver not wearing a seat belt is a $114 fine. If juveniles are unbelted in the vehi cle, the fine increases to $164 and results in 3 viola tion points on the drivers license.

On Monday, the Indians will divide into groups with their conditioning. Well take the linemen and the linebackers into the weight room while every one else is out doing circuit agility drills, Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson said. After about an hour and 15 minutes, well switch. Well do some core work and usually end it with something like tug of war. For Columbia head coach Brian Allen, the summer is a learning opportunity. Its strength and condi tioning, but its also a lot of teaching, Allen said. Its not going to be high inten sity on the run, but now were talking about slowing it down. Were going over the basics and teaching why its important. Its the time where questions will be asked. Allen expects the learn ing curve to be much quick er than in previous years.

they left as seniors, they were a heck of a team.” Allen said this team is similar in their age, and he expects the same from this group. “It’s back to the drawing board,” he said. “We are ahead of the kids from two years ago. They understand the terminology. Next year, their understanding will be even greater.” The summer’s culmination will be the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Football Camp in Deland for both teams. Columbia will get first crack at the FCA Camp when they travel down on July 21-23 and Fort White will follow on July 25-27. “The FCA team camp will allow us the opportunity to scrimmage other teams,” Jackson said. “It’s a good experience for us to build togetherness as a team.” Allen also likes the competition aspect of the FCA Camp. “I like it a ton,” he said. “You look at 95 percent of the teams there and they’re in the playoffs. Two teams played in the state cham-pionship and another won the state championship. It’s a good evaluation for where you stand as a foot-ball team.” Besides the FCA Camp, both teams will have other passing league games sprinkled in throughout the season. It’s all in preparation for the fall.

From staff reports I n the late 1930s, nine out of 10 rural homes still were without power. Private, investorowned power companies served most of the cities and were not eager to extend their lines to rural homes, farms and busi nesses. Clay Electrics story began when Ed Wiggins purchased the Keystone Heights power plant in 1925. Wiggins small power plant reached capacity in the late 1930s. Wiggins spent the next several months rounding up mem bers and updating maps, and then received a state charter in 1937. In February 1938, Wiggins received his first loan from the Rural Electrification Administration, a newly chartered co-op to expand service. Cooperatives were born to meet the challenge of bringing electricity where investor-owned utilities refused to go, said Derick Thomas, district manager of Clays Lake Citys office. REA crews, along with teams of electricians, went around the countryside installing the wiring for the new power system. Clay Electric has grown from 343 members in five counties to 165,000 members spread across 14 counties. The Co-op employs more than 400 people -35 in Lake City, Thomas said. Thomas said Lake Citys district office was built in 1967. In 1967, the Lake City district office was the smallest district. Now, the office is the real close to third largest. Thomas said because the Co-op built power lines into areas where there was large growth potential over a large area of land, they have grown along with the population. When we built the district office in Lake City there was nothing there, Thomas said. We have seen a lot of growth since the 90s, and the first half of the 2000s. Many of the areas we serve now are not considered rural. But the original aim of the Co-op was to bet ter the lives of people in rural America. Thomas said bringing electricity to those area also laid the found work for economic diversification. He said with electricity came electrical appliances and jobs for people as elec tricians. It was as simple as wiring up one light bulb, then as they could afford it, trading the traditional ice box for a refrigerator, Thomas said.

CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER and PAUL WISEMANAP Economics WritersWASHINGTON — The U.S. economy added 175,000 jobs in May — a steady pace that shows strength in the face of tax increases and govern-ment spending cuts if not enough to reduce still-high unemployment. The unemployment rate rose to 7.6 percent from 7.5 percent in April, the Labor Department said Friday. The rate rose because more people began looking for work, a healthy sign, but only about three-quar-ters found jobs. Analysts said the lessthan-robust job growth would likely lead the Federal Reserve to main-tain the pace of its monthly bond purchases for a few more months. The bond purchases have been intended to ease long-term borrowing costs and lift stock prices. Investors appeared pleased by the evidence that job growth remains steady. The Dow Jones industrial average was up about 138 points in midaft-ernoon trading. Friday’s job figures provided further evidence of the U.S. economy’s resil-ience. The housing market is strengthening, auto sales are up and consumer con-fidence has reached a five-year peak. Stock prices are near record highs, and the bud-get deficit has shrunk. The U.S. economy’s relative strength contrasts with Europe, which is gripped by recession, and Asia, where once-explosive economies are now struggling. Many analysts expect the U.S. economy to strengthen later this year. “Today’s report has to be encouraging for growth in the second half of the year,” said Dan Greenhaus, an analyst at BTIG LLC. Employers have added an average of 155,000 jobs the past three months. But the May gain almost exact-ly matched the average increase of the previous 12 months: 172,000. Americans appear to be more optimistic about their job prospects: 420,000 people started looking for work in May. As a result, the percentage of Americans 16 and older either working or looking for work rose to 63.4 per-cent from a 34-year low of 63.3 percent in April. This is called the labor force participation rate. Higher participation can boost the unemployment rate. That’s because once people without a job start looking for one, they’re counted as unemployed. Labor force participation has been falling since peak-ing at 67.3 percent in 2000. That’s partly the result of baby boomers retiring and dropping out of the work force. Joseph LaVorgna, chief U.S. economist at Deutsche Bank Securities, thinks an improving job market will encourage more Americans to look for jobs. He predicts that the participation rate will level off at around 63.5 percent. The unemployment rate is derived from a survey of households. This sur-vey found that more people started looking for work in May. Since some didn’t find jobs right away, the num-ber of unemployed rose 101,000 to 11.7 million. The job gain for the month is calculated from a separate survey of employ-ers. Some signs in the report suggested that the govern-ment spending cuts, which began taking effect in March, and weak growth in much of the rest of the world are weighing on the U.S. job market. Weakness overseas has slowed demand for U.S. exports. Manufacturers cut 8,000 jobs, and the federal gov-ernment shed 14,000. Both were the third straight month of cuts for those industries. The number of temporary jobs rose about 26,000, the second straight month of strong gains. That suggests that employ-ers are responding to more demand but aren’t confi-dent enough to hire perma-nent workers. Industries that rely directly on consumer spending hired at a healthy pace — a sign of confidence that consumers will keep spending. Retailers added 28,000 jobs. Restaurants and hotels added 33,000. These categories include many lower-paying occu-pations. By contrast, the recession sharply cut jobs in higher-paying industries such as manufacturing, construction and finance, which have yet to recover. Mark Vitner, an economist at Wells Fargo, calcu-lated that about 60 percent of the jobs created in May were in lower-paying fields. Even in a professional field such as health care, Vitner noted that one of the big-gest job creators was home health care services, where care providers earn about $10 an hour, according to government data. “It’s hard to get meaningful income growth with these types of jobs,” Vitner said. Rob McGahen, 29, has felt the trend personally. After receiving his master’s in business administration in 2007, McGahen worked for Boeing in St. Louis, buying parts for military planes. Last year, after moving with his wife to Pensacola, McGahen sought work for about nine months. He settled for a part-time job in the produce section of Publix. “It’s certainly not a longterm plan,” McGahen said. “But it keeps me busy.” 2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 9, 2013 2CBIZ/MOTLEY Name That Company@deXd\[X]k\ik_\nfdXen_f ]fle[\[d\`e(0+-%?\X[hlXik\i\[ `eDXe_XkkXe#@]fZljfejb`eZXi\#_X`iZXi\#dXb\lgXe[]iX^iXeZ\j#j\cc`e^ gif[lZkj`edfi\k_Xe(,'Zfleki`\j Xe[k\ii`kfi`\j%@\eZfdgXjjYiXe[j jlZ_Xj8iXd`j#:c`e`hl\#Gi\jZi`gk`m\j# CXYJ\i`\j#Fi`^`ej#D›8›:#9fYY`9ifne# Kfddp?`c]`^\i#B`kfe#CXD\i#;feeX BXiXe#8m\[X#AfDXcfe\#9ldYc\Xe[YldYc\# ;Xig_`e#D`Z_X\cBfij#8d\i`ZXe9\Xlkp#=c`ik# >ff[Jb`eCXYj#>iXjjiffkjI\j\XiZ_CXYj# Kfd=fi[#:fXZ_#Fafe#JdXj_Yfo#

By AMANDA WILLIAMSON FORT WHITE L ast month, sev enth-grader DJ Hall was inter ested in archi tecture, and now hes studying the legal system. His mother Donna Hall, says the Fort White Middle School student has a wide variety of interests sciences, language arts, government and more. When he was younger, DJ watched Peter Jennings, the late ABC news anchor, deliver the news nightly on World News Tonight, and then NBCs Brian Williams after Jennings passed away. Tom Clancy, John Grisham and James Patterson share space on his bookshelf. All three authors feed his interest in law, a field DJ hopes to be a part of one day. The more he learns, its just knowledge, Donna Hall said. And he can use that knowledge in the future. Nothing learned is wasted. And Donna Hall was right. Because of his FCAT scores, DJ qualified to take the SAT or ACT as a seventh-grader. He scored a 25 on the reading portion of the ACT and a 17 on math, meaning he was in the 91st percentile of all the students who took the test. The state recognition level qualify ing score is a 20 on the ACT. Based on his scores, DJ was invited to a special recognition ceremony in Tallahassee. Taking the college entrance exam as a sev enth-grader flags DJ for Duke Universitys TIP talent search program.

If you wanted to eat out and have a good meal the closest place was 27 miles away in Waycross, Ga., and it was the Green Frog. Located on Lee Avenue, it was the happening place for dining. There was a huge sign at the front with the name and two large signs with huge Green Frogs depicted on either side. The minute you walked in you were met by a friendly, down-home atmosphere and staff. This was where you went after the basketball games, after graduation, after an all-day shopping trip in Waycross or just for a special treat. I must admit that South Georgia frog legs didnt appeal to me then and not now. Sorry, Mr. Darden. My birthday is Dec. 20, so as I got older and the at-home birthday parties were no longer, my mother always took me to the Green Frog for our special lunch. I always ordered the veal Parmesan. I had never been to an Italian restau rant, and veal was not available in Homerville. So, why this was my choice is unexplainable. Guess I thought it was exotic. The Green Frog closed in 1981, but I had left South Georgia in the s, so I hadnt thought of it in years. My childhood best friend, Ann Peagler Gallagher, reminded me this summer when I mentioned that we were getting an Olive Garden and a Longhorn Steak House restaurant in Lake City that they are part of Darden Restaurants and that Mr. Darden had been the owner of the Green Frog. I hadnt made the connection but decided to do some research on Bill Darden. By the way, one of Anns Green Frog memo ries is that she had her first shrimp cocktail there. So, shrimp cocktail memory for her and veal Parmesan for me and, think about it, then later came Red Lobster and Olive Garden. Bill Darden opened the Green Frog in 1938 when he was 19 years old. It consisted of a lunch counter with 10 stools, two booths and a drive-up window. Its slogan was Service with a Hop. He defied the laws of his Southern state by refusing to segregate his customers based on race. He hired his friend Joe Lee as a cook to help out. Later, the restau rant was enlarged to full capacity of 200 and pros pered for many years. U.S. 1 and U.S. 301 run through Waycross. so the Green Frog was a popular eating spot for travelers coming to and from Florida. When Interstate 95 opened and took most of the tourist traffic from Waycross, the demise of the Green Frog was inevitable. In 1968, Bill chose Lakeland as the site of his first Red Lobster res taurant. He wanted to see how the concept of a sea food restaurant would fare in a noncoastal region. By 1970, he had expanded to three locations with plans for further expansion. (An interesting side note is that popcorn shrimp was created by Red Lobster.) He lacked the resources to expand further, so he sold to food giant, General Mills, which opened a corporate office in Orlando and installed Bill Darden as company president. General Mills started the Olive Garden chain in 1982, and it became nearly as successful as Red Lobster. Bill Darden died in 1994, but General Mills estab lished Darden Restaurants to run both chains the following year, so that the name as well as his ideas could live on. Bill Darden believed When you are here, youre family. Since 1996, other suc cessful restaurants have followed: Longhorn Steak House, Bahama Breeze, Seasons 22, Capital Grille, Eddie Vs and the Yard House. There are over 2,107 restaurants, 190,000 employees and 400 million meals served a year. Darden Restaurants went public in 1995. Their assets today are $7.9 billion, and it is the worlds largest casual food dining operation. Red Lobster has been in Lake City for a num ber of years and recently the Olive Garden and Longhorn opened here. Im not going to review their menu items as most of us have visited these restau rants for years. I will comment on the management. I have talked with Robert Hockett at Olive Garden and one of the assistant managers of Longhorn, Amy Brown. I found them both to be energetic, well informed and motivated managers, who want to make you feel like family at their restau rants, just like Bill Darden wanted. They both are very proud of their restau rants and proud to be in Lake City. So, a 19-year-old South Georgia boy who started by selling fish sandwiches and frog legs ended up leading a billion dollar food conglomerate. This is truly the American Dream. I have to admit that after researching this, when I walked into Longhorn last week, I had a different feeling of appreciation. I hope that when you visit his restaurants you, too, will take a minute to think of how this came to be in Lake City and remember we never know who the next Bill Darden might be. W e all have friends we can count on for support, even the Columbia County Public Library. The Friends of the Library is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization that is dedicated to supporting the Library by fostering the Librarys mission to educate, entertain and enlighten its patrons by providing programs that satisfy the needs and inter ests of its members; and by expanding awareness and appre ciation of and support for library services among Columbia County residents, institutions and businesses. The financial support the Friends provide includes paying for all of the costs of the youth and adult programs and special events. The Library would not be able to offer the very popu lar Florida Author Series, the Young da Vinci art classes or the Childrens Summer Reading Program if the Friends did not pay for them. For the past eight years, the Friends have collaborated with the North Florida Art League on a juried art show at the West Branch. The Friends provide $1,000 in prize money that is awarded at the opening recep tion in June. The art show judg es represent a variety of com munity members. The art work remains up through the summer months, culminating with a final prize for the piece voted best by the public. The next art show opens June 18, with the art work being hung on the June 15. Applications for submitting work are available at all three Library locations and other places in the community. You must be a member of either the Friends of the Library or the North Florida Art League to enter art in the show. In addition to membership fees, donations, and memori als, the Friends raise money by having the Book Sale Room at the Main Library. It is open the same hours as the Library and is a great way to purchase gen tly used books, magazines and other items very inexpensively. The materials that are sold are from donations and materials removed from the general col lections. The Friends held a two-day book sale in the Main Library parking lot during the Olustee Festival. The Friends of the Library currently has almost 200 mem bers. It is governed by a board that meets monthly on the fourth Monday of each month, except in July and December, at 5:30 p.m. at the Main Library. Karl Burkhardt, publisher of the, is the cur rent president. Every February, the board hosts the annual Friends mem bership meeting that includes a brief business meeting followed by an interesting and entertain ing program. One important function of Friends groups is that its mem bers serve as advocates for the library to local and state govern ment officials. Library employ ees have a vested interest in try ing to prevent budget cuts, but Friends can contact the officials to let them know how important the library is to the community. Several years ago, when the governor eliminated state fund ing to public libraries, the legis lators were inundated with thou sands of messages from Friends all over Florida telling them just how important public libraries were to their constituents. State aid to public libraries was rein stated. Annual memberships are inexpensive and start at $5 for individuals and $10 for families. Friends often give memberships as gifts.

I dont expect anything less of him, and I look forward to seeing what he does in the future, she said. I dont even know if I could score that high on the ACT. DJ intends to pursue college at either Florida State University or East Tennessee State University, as of now. Coming from a family of law enforcement offi cers, he wants to eventu ally study law. Donna Hall believes he could pursue any branch of law, includ ing forensics, because of his variety of interests. I think Gods blessed him with an ability to retain knowledge, Donna Hall said. He has a thirst for learning. ... We have a normal routine. He does chores, he does his home work and then he has time to do other activities, like sports. DJs parents have always encouraged him, from purchasing him books to enrolling him in Spanish and sign language classes as a child. They allow him to watch CSI and NCIS, shows that encourage his love for the legal system, and they want him to take the ACT again next year. If he continues to take the test annually, by the time he reaches 12th grade, the ACT wont seem as nervewracking. I think hes figured out that if he works hard, more opportunities will be available to him, Donna Hall said.


Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JUNE 9, 2013 3D3DLIFEA weed in the landscape can be defined as a plant grow-ing where it is not wanted. With so many weed-control products available in stores, it’s just too easy to grab a bottle with a well-known name and start spraying. But before you do, read a little more information about Roundup, one of the most recognizable trade names in weed control. There are different products available for sale under the trade name Roundup. It isn’t my inten-tion to recommend or chal-lenge the use of any pes-ticide, but rather provide information about how one trade name can have so many products and uses. Always read the label care-fully to determine where and how to use the prod-uct. There are many types of Roundup products, but they all have one main active ingredient in com-mon. Glyphosate is a systemic herbicide. This type of herbicide moves through the plant via the vascular system, so it relocates to all parts of the plant. This makes it very effective on perennial weeds, also, because it moves into the roots. Glyphosate is no longer protected by patent. You can find other trade-name products on the shelf now with glyphosate listed as their active ingredient. The consumer usually can find less expensive products with the same ingredients after a patent has expired. The ultra-concentrated form of glyphosate has no other active ingredients. Be patient when using this type of product because it doesn’t burn down or kill the weeds quickly. It takes two to three weeks for good results, in most situ-ations. Another ingredient, diquat, is often added to glyphosate to speed up the symptoms. The weed is still being killed by the glyphosate, but the diquat may help get the job done by breaking down the waxy coating on the leaves of some plants. Another product carries the “weed preventer” claim. This product also contains imazapic to pre-vent weed seed germina-tion for months after appli-cation. On several occasions, I’ve heard complaints from people who could grow nothing in the garden after they used glyphosate. It always turned out that they had used this product which prevented germina-tion of their garden seeds, as well as the weed seeds. Chemicals can pollute the environment and can mess up your landscape if not used according to directions. So read and fol-low the label: It is the law.

Nichelle Demorest is a horticulture agent with the Columbia County Extension of the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. Weed-killer labels should be read very carefully By W. WAYT GIBBSAssociated PressCompared to other basic cooking techniques, grilling is hard: the temperatures are high, timing is crucial and slight differences in the thickness or wetness of the food can dramati-cally affect how quickly it cooks. Bad design choices by equipment makers — ket-tle-shaped grills with black interiors, for example — make it harder still. But if you’re willing to do some simple arithmetic or break out a roll of foil, you can reduce the guesswork and get better performance from your grill. Similar tricks work for broiling; after all, a broiler is basi-cally just an inverted grill. Every grill has a sweet spot where the heat is even. You know you’re cooking in the sweet spot when all of the food browns at about the same pace. In most situations, the bigger the sweet spot, the better. One notable exception is when you need to reserve part of the grill for cooking some ingredients more slowly or keeping previously cooked food warm. If you find yourself continually swapping food from the center of your grill with pieces at the periphery, that’s a sure sign that your sweet spot is too small. You can get an intuitive feel for where the edge of the sweet spot lies by looking at the heat from the food’s point of view. I mean that literally: imag-ine you are a hotdog lying facedown on the grill. If the coals or the gas flames don’t fill your entire field of view, then you aren’t receiving as much radiant heat as your fellow wiener who is dead-center over the heat source. If the falloff in the intensity of the heat is greater than about 10 percent, you’re outside the sweet spot. You can use the table below to estimate the size of the sweet spot on your own grill. The 26-inch-wide gas grill on my deck has four burners with heat-dispersing caps that span about 23 inches. The food sits only three inches above the burner caps, so when all four burners are going, the sweet spot includes the middle 16 inches of the grill. But if I use only the two central burners, which are 10 inches from edge to edge, the sweet spot shrinks to a measly 5.4 inches, too small to cook two chicken breasts side by side. I can use this to my advantage, however, if I have a big piece of food that is thick in the middle and thinner at the ends, such as a long salmon fillet. By laying the fish cross-wise over the two burners, I can cook the fat belly until it is done without terribly overcooking the slimmer head and tail of the fillet. Sweet spots are narrowest on small grills, such as little braziers, kettles, hiba-chis, and the fixed grilling boxes at a public parks. If the sweet spot on your grill is too confining for all the food you have to cook, you can enlarge it in several ways. If the grill height is adjustable, lower it. Bringing the food a couple inches clos-er to the heat can easily expand the sweet spot by 2 to 3 inches. The effect on the intensity of the heat is less than you might expect: typically no more than about a 15 percent increase. If your grill is boxy in shape, line the sides with foil, shiny side out. Your goal is to create a hall of mirrors in which the heat rays bounce off the foil until they hit the food. A hotdog at the edge of the grill then sees not only those coals that are in its line of sight, but also reflections of the coals in the foil-lined side of the grill. The foil trick unfortunately doesn’t work well on kettle grills because their rounded shape tends to bounce the radiant heat back toward the center instead of out to the edges. But if you can find a piece of shiny sheet metal about 4 inches wide and 56 inch-es long, you can bend the metal into a reflective circu-lar ring and build the coal bed inside of it. All food within the circumference of the ring should then cook pretty evenly. Jury-rigging a grill in this way wouldn’t be necessary if grills came shiny on the inside and we could keep them that way. But, pre-sumably because nobody likes to clean the guts of a grill, the interiors of most grills are painted black, the worst possible color for a large sweet spot. A black metal surface doesn’t reflect many infrared heat rays; instead it soaks them up, gets really hot, then re-emits the heat in random directions. Someday, some clever inventor will come up with a self-cleaning grill that has a mirror finish inside, and the sweet-spot problem will simply vanish.

Sesame Workshop project urges kids to visit parksBy FRAZIER MOOREAP Television WriterNEW YORK — “Sesame Street” wants kids to take a break from parking it indoors, and head out to a park instead. A new project has recruited Muppet monsters Elmo and Murray to visit national parks in six short videos that encourage children ages 3-5 to experience the great outdoors, wherever it might be, and to apply scientific skills of inquiry to learn about these natural settings. The product of a partnership between Sesame Workshop, the U.S. National Park Service and its philanthropic off-shoot, the National Park Foundation, “Sesame Street Explores National Parks” aims to promote science learning by kids through their experiences in national parks as well as local parks and their own backyards. “This is very childfocused, stimulating chil-dren’s natural curiosity and bringing that exploration to the natural environment,” said Rosemarie T. Truglio, Sesame Workshop’s senior vice president of education and research. Beginning Tuesday, the videos can be streamed on partner organizations’ websites and social media channels, and will be made available to all national parks for use in their visitor centers, along with related materials for parents, care-givers and educators that propose activities to share with children. Each video features Elmo and Murray (in rang-er regalia) as they meet with a park ranger from Grand Canyon National Park or Gateway National Recreation Area, which is located in New York City and northern New Jersey. “Children are natural scientists,” said Truglio, “and we want to encourage them to get outside and to explore the world around them using all their senses — to explore and investi-gate and learn.” ASSOCIATED PRESSRanger Shalini Gopie with the character Elmo from the children’s series “Sesame Street,” during a segment on national parks.

DEAR ABBY: I host all of the holiday parties and dinner parties for my fam-ily. Whenever I have my parents over, my father insists on helping himself to the top layer of every casserole. He’ll scrape all the cheese off the pota-toes, the crunchy onion topping off the green bean casserole, etc., leaving just the bare vegetables for everyone else. I have asked Dad not to do it because it is inconsiderate of the other guests. I can see people are bothered by it, so now they make a beeline to the buffet so they can beat him to it. Dad got offended when I talked to him about it, but he continues to do it. Mom refuses to get involved, and I have said all I can say. What to do? -BURNED UP IN ILLINOIS DEAR BURNED UP: A guest who grabs all the goodies at a dinner party is a hog. Because your father refuses to change his behavior, I will offer a few suggestions: The first is to alter your menu to avoid serving casserole dishes. If that’s not possible, make your father his own separate casserole with his name on it, so he can have it all to himself. Or plate the food in the kitchen and stop serving it buffet-style. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: Over the past few years, as social media has become more popular, I have noticed a trend among many people. They now favor that form of communication over personal human interac-tion. This is especially true of my girlfriend of five years. We have the normal relationship problems I feel could be addressed, but from the moment she gets home from work she’s in front of the computer playing Facebook games, posting status updates or messaging “friends.” She sits there for hours, lost in her virtual world. We rare-ly talk anymore, and when we do it turns into an argu-ment because I’m trying to discuss what I see as a serious problem. The Internet and social media are great tools for bringing worlds together, if they are not abused. But for many people, I think, social media is doing more harm than good. It has depersonalized human contact and has the poten-tial to destroy relationships and isolate individuals. I’m interested in your opinion and any advice you can give me on helping my girlfriend understand my concerns. -ALONE IN THE REAL WORLD DEAR ALONE: People cannot be two places at once. When relationships aren’t nurtured, they with-er. If this has been going on for an extended period, then it’s time you give your girlfriend a wake-up call: You feel abandoned. By spending more time in the virtual world than in the real one, she is neglecting her relationship with you. Ask her if she would be willing to work on a com-promise so that she spends time with you. If she can’t do that, and the Internet is giving her everything she needs, then you should find a lady who is willing to give you more of what YOU need, which is undi-vided attention. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take action, present and promote and you will attract positive attention. Expanding your interests to include people from dif-ferent backgrounds will pay off in terms of future business or personal opportunities. ++++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Offer help and you will make wonderful contacts. Being included in something special will open doors to greater opportunities to travel, learn or communicate with interesting people. Love is emphasized, and relation-ships should be explored and enhanced. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Stick to the truth. You may have to make a quick alteration to your plans or the way you are living, but the end result favors your mental health and physical wellness. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Avoid behavior that can make you look unsta-ble. Emotional matters will get you into trouble if you cannot control your reactions. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Engage in activities or events that allow you to mingle with influential people. Having fun and sharing your thoughts and plans will help you raise interest in your con-cerns and future ventures. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Disagreements will be inevitable. Make sure you listen to the other side of the debate so that you can find a workable solu-tion and offset permanent damage that can alter your future. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Do what you love even if it doesn’t please every-one. Follow your heart and you’ll feel good about who you are and what you accomplish. A change in your personal life may not be easy, but it will do you good. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Engage in activities that will take you to unusu-al places or allow you to experience something you have never encountered before. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Tread carefully when dealing with partner-ships. Don’t take anyone for granted or try to get away with something by evading the issues. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): You’ll be forced to make a difficult choice. Opt to lower your stress level by dealing with any delicate matters with a straightforward attitude and a practical solution.
