By AMANDA WILLIAMSON email@example.comDark-brown water flowed over the boat ramp at the U.S. 129 bridge outside Branford on Friday. Beyond that, several pontoon and skiff boats waited to load about 50 state legislators, their assistants and area scientists for an educational tour on the Santa Fe River, which remains in peril despite the high water levels. The Suwannee River Water Management District organizes the trip annually, highlighting a different section of the regions water system each time. This year, the trip comes just before the management district releases its data on minimum flows and levels, and just after By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comW ind from the Dominican Republic coast ruffled the lacy fabric of Jennifer Hampton Hoysradts Maggie Sottero wedding dress. Her bouquet of pink roses blos-somed vibrantly in her hand as she made her way toward a gazebo surrounded by friends and family. Arm-in-arm, Hoysradt walked beside her father, Ronnie Bullard a man she couldnt have imagined the day without. But months earlier, surgical compli-cations almost meant her big day would have slipped by without him. I think this wed-ding has been, I believe, his inspi-ration for the last year, Hoysradt said. There was a chance that he wasnt going to go, and honestly I was devastated. ... You never envision your dad not being there. In March 2010, Bullard fell 10 feet from a ladder while trimming trees in the yard of his Lake City home. A limb swung toward him, knocking him from his perch. Instantly, he let go of the chainsaw. Landing on his head, he was paralyzed from the neck down. The accident hap-pened at about 4 p.m. on his day off from Century Ambulance as an emergency medical technician. He was home alone. Repeatedly calling for help that didnt come, Bullards voice became hoarse. Finally, an hour later, his youngest son arrived home to find his father lying in the yard, unable to move. Doctors diagnosed Bullard with central cord syn-drome, a condition caused by a pinched spinal cord. It was one of those days where your mom calls over and over and over again, Hoysradt said. And I thought, Okay, whats going on here? When I found out, I threw clothes in my car and just left. When Jennifer arrived at the hospital from her home in West Palm Beach, her dad was coming out of surgery. Ronnie Bullard still couldnt move from the neck down. It was really hard to see him that way, she said. You always picture your dad as this strong person. ... But hes determined to get better and I think thats a testament to who he is. Margaret Bullard, Ronnie Bullards wife, said her husband had to relearn how to walk. Central cord syndrome could be considered permanent because Ronnie Bullard will always have troubles with his muscles, she said.

Trial testimony turns technicalBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comAfter putting more than a dozen people on the witness stand the day before, the prosecution in the Richard Franklin capi-tal murder trial changed gears Friday, limiting testimony to two witnesses. The trial became more technical, with testimony from a Florida Department of Law Enforcement crime scene technician lasting most of the day. The third day of testimony lasted about five hours ,with the jury being released about 1:30 p.m. Testimony is slated to resume after 8:30 a.m. Tuesday. Franklin is being tried for the March 2012 stabbing death of Columbia County corrections officer Sgt. Ruben Thomas III. When the trial began Wednesday, testimony centered around what correc-tions officers responsibilities entailed and where the knife that killed Thomas came from. Thursdays testimony centered around who saw the attack on Thomas and how inmates and correctional officers responded.

After five days of the selection process, 29 potential jurors have passed through an initial round of questioning about what knowledge they have already gained through media and other means about the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in a Sanford, Fla., gated community. I know its slow-going to the outside, but its not slow-going to the inside, defense attorney Mark OMara said. I think its working out pretty well. OMara said that Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch lead er, has been eager to have the actual trial process begin. Hes very encouraged because its finally on the way. Hes been waiting for 16 months for this process to start. Hes looking very forward to the resolution and the acquittal, OMara said. Scott signs law to speed executions TALLAHASSEE Florida is speeding up how quickly it carries out the death penalty. Gov. Rick Scott on Friday signed into law a measure designed to overhaul the states capital punishment process. That process has been criticized for allowing some con demned inmates to remain for decades on death row. The Timely Justice Act of 2013 creates tighter timeframes for appeals and post-conviction motions and imposes reporting requirements on case progress. It also re-establishes a separate agency for north Florida to provide appel late-level legal representa tion to inmates sentenced to death, and requires them to pursue all pos sible remedies in state court. Scott said in his signing statement that the states current death row inmates who have exhausted their judicial appeals have been awaiting execution for an average of 22 years. An inmate who has been on death row for 22 years has had a fair opportunity to discover all of the evidence needed to challenge his conviction, especially when the inmate has received the multiple levels of review and the extraordinary due process afforded death-sentenced offenders, Scott wrote. He said such lengthy delays are a crushing burden of uncertainty to the victims families. Two men Elmer Leon Carroll and William Van Poyck have been executed by lethal injec tion in the last month. A third man Marshall Lee Gore is scheduled to be executed on June 24. Reform school probe uses DNA TAMPA Researchers on Friday collected DNA samples from family members of boys who died decades ago at a nowdefunct Florida reform school in the hopes it will match the remains found on the property of the now-closed school. University of South Florida researchers have used historical documents to verify the deaths of two adult staff members and 96 children rang ing in age from 6 to 18 between 1914 and 1973 at the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys. Records indicated that 45 indi viduals were buried on the 1,400-acre tract from 1914 to 1952, while 31 bodies were sent elsewhere for burial. USF associate profes sor Erin Kimmerle said its unclear whether there are more children buried in unmarked graves on the property. And thats only part of the reason why the researchers are seeking DNA from at least seven family members and asking for state permits to exhume the human remains on the site. Police say pit bull attacked baby HOLIDAY Animal control officials in the Tampa Bay area have taken custody of a pit bull they say attacked a 10-month old baby. Sheriffs deputies said the babys mother was out side her home in Holiday on Friday afternoon chatting with a neighbor when they heard the dog growling inside. When they went into the house, they found the dog biting the baby on the head and shoulder. The Tampa Bay Times reports the baby was taken to a local hospital. The childs name and condition were not released. Pasco County Animal Control officials are holding the dog for obser vation. 6-vehicle crash kills couple MARY ESTHER Two people died and six others were injured in a crash near Hurlburt Field. The multi-vehicle crash happened Thursday near the main gate of the U.S. Air Force installation. The westbound lanes of U.S. Highway 98 were closed for almost five hours as the Florida Highway Patrol investigated the crash. The FHP reports Kurt Graetzer, 66, and Pamela Graetzer, 63, were killed in the crash. They were stuck in traffic about 1:25 p.m. Thursday when a box truck driven by Devin Endersen hit them from behind. The impact sent the Graetzers Honda Element into a truck driven by Steven Williams. Williams truck then hit a car driven by James Calbert Jr. Calberts vehicle then struck a truck driven by Clifford Holmes. The Northwest Florida Daily News reported the box truck continued after hitting the Graetzers car and hit vehicles driven by Williams and Calbert. Capt. Joey Boudreaux of the Mary Esther Fire Department said five vic tims were taken to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center. Another person received minor injuries and didnt need to go the hospital. NEW YORK Sting performed in honor of Elton John, Billy Joel sang snippets of Foreigners hits when introducing the band and Smokey Robinson debuted part of a new song he wrote about Berry Gordy. The 44th annual Songwriters Hall of Fame ceremony was full of star power that included Alison Krauss, Aerosmiths Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, Nickelback, Petula Clark, Wiz Khalifa, Jordin Sparks and a video message from Bill Clinton. Tyler, Perry, Mick Jones and Lou Gramm of Foreigner, Holly Knight, JD Souther and Tony Hatch were inducted Thursday into the Songwriters Hall 2013 class in New York City. John and writing partner Bernie Taupin received the Johnny Mercer award, and Sting kicked off the night with a performance of Saturday Nights Alright for Fighting. Sting also called John and Taupin my two heroes. John, who was inducted into the Songwriters Hall in 1992, said song writing is often taken for granted. I dont mean this lightly, but when you get an Ivor Novello award or an American songwriters award, it means so much more than a Grammy because this is where the whole process starts, he said. John also used the stage to try to clear his differences with Joel. I didnt see you tonight Mr. Joel, but I want to see you, he said. Joel responded later when he was onstage with light jokes. Is Elton still here by the way? he asked. Anyway, were OK. Call me. Its the same phone number. Joel introduced Jones and Gramm, who gave the nights most rousing performance when they sang the Foreigner hits Juke Box Hero and I Want to Know What Love Is, which had the crowd singing along, standing and swaying side-to-side at the black tie event. Foreigner also got a boost thanks to the performance of The Anthony Morgans Inspirational Choir of Harlem. Billy Ray Cyrus, wife of 19 years, divorcing LOS ANGELES Billy Ray Cyrus wife has filed for divorce from the country singer after 19 years of marriage.

of his sentence and had spent a few days at the prison. He was housed in the T dormitory the night Thomas was killed. He said that night, Thomas came into the dorm after he had conducted an inmate check and asked who called and complained about water coming out of the air vent in a cell. Lynch said he helped with maintenance at the prison. He said it struck him as odd that water would be coming from an air vent, because water and ventila-tion are separate systems. I walked over there to look, he said, noting he was downstairs heading to a water fountain. Thomas came in and looked up at the vent. I seen the defendant strike Sarge. I didnt see a weapon. He (Thomas) was looking up at the vent and got struck. They scuffled and Sarge fought his way out the cell, down the tier, stumbled down the steps and got to the door. Lynch testified that when Thomas got to the bottom of the steps, Franklin ran out of his cell. Lynch said he saw Franklin had a knife. A knife was in his (Franklins) right hand, he said, noting Thomas had blood coming from his face when he ran out of the cell. He had it in his hand and he was following Sarge. He said Thomas continued to run towards the security station door with Franklin close behind him. Franklin didnt let Thomas close the door, Lynch said. He gets back on Sarge. If he (Thomas) was able to open the door immedi-ately, he would have prob-ably made it. You could see the defendant come behind him and you could see the fighting, stabbing motion, Lynch said, as he demon-strated with his arms mak-ing a downward, stabbing motion. I could see the knife come down and hit. I didnt see the knife go into the skin, Lynch said. He saw Thomas go down. It looked like he was laying halfway in and out the doorway. Lynch said Franklin then left Thomas and did a throat-slashing gesture as he turned towards the other inmates. Lynch also testified that he had seen the knife before. He said Franklins room-mate, Robert Midnight Acree, made the knife and showed it to him earlier, asking him if he wanted to buy it. Lynch said he had been at seven other correc-tional facilities with Acree and Acree was known as a knife maker. Acree admit-ted as much during his tes-timony Wednesday. Amy George, an FDLE crime scene technician, then took the stand and testified about evidence she collected hours after the incident. After arriving in Columbia County, she said she went to the hospital and collected evidence from the victim and then headed back to the prison, arriving at about 3:45 a.m. on March 19, 2012. George said she photographed the crime scene, took notes and made sketches of the entire dorm as part of the evi-dence collection process. She said there was a sense of urgency to collect some of the items so the water in the dorm could be turned back on. George requested permission to examine Franklin, who was being held in the facilitys medi-cal building and she pho-tographed him. She said her attempt to get trace evidence (blood) off him was denied until a search warrant could be served. They got a search warrant, and I was able to exam-ine him, she said. He was not covered in blood. George also collected Franklins clothing, includ-ing his boots. She showed the boots and Franklins socks to the jury on Friday. She said the items had been sent to the FDLEs biology department of DNA comparison. Durrett asked whether the person she got the boots from was in the courtroom, and George identified Franklin. Georges testimony also included how she col-lected DNA samples from Franklin, and she elabo-rated on different types of DNA samples she col-lected. George also said she investigated a padlock and a metal bar that was sharp-ened into a knife, which she received from corrections Capt. Michelle Nipper. George broke the seal on a plastic evidence cyl-inder that contained the knife, and she described the knife a as piece of metal, sharpened to a point that had string wound on at its non-pointed end as a handle. Durrett showed the knife to jurors. The knife was 10 inches long and 1.5 inches wide. The remainder of Georges testimony focused on crime scene photographs she had taken, areas where she found blood and how she collected the blood samples from walls and the floor. She concluded her testimony with a DVD that showed a three-dimen-sional view, through a com-puter model, of the crime scene area from a variety of vantage points. Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, JUNE 16, 2013 3A From staff reportsLIVE OAK The Suwannee River Water Management District Governing Board passed a resolution requesting the state Department of Environmental Protection adopt minimum flows and levels for the Lower Santa Fe and Ichetucknee rivers and priority springs. The board passed the resolution Tuesday based on House Bill 7, sponsored by state Rep. Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City, and state Sen. Charles Dean, R-Inverness. House Bill 7 requires adjoining water management districts to apply MFLs that are adopt-ed by DEP. Therefore, the Lower Santa Fe and Ichetucknee rivers and pri-ority springs MFL would be applied in both the Suwannee River and St. Johns River management districts. Given that district boundaries are established along surface water hydrologic divides, groundwater with-drawals have the potential to affect water resources in an adjacent district. House Bill 7 addresses possible cross-boundary impacts by requiring water manage-ment districts to apply the MFLs of adjoining districts that are adopted by DEP. The district is developing the MFLs and has commit-ted to a voluntarily peer review of the science and all related technical docu-ments in establishing them. The peer review will be conducted by a panel of experts from the University of Florida Water Institute. Prior to the legislation, water management dis-tricts could work together to address cross-boundary impacts. However, for one water management dis-trict to apply an adjacent districts MFL, that district would have to go through a duplicate rulemaking pro-cess. Upon House Bill 7 becoming law, which has an effec-tive date of July 1, DEPs adoption of cross-boundary MFLs will reduce costs and avoid duplicate efforts of two or more adjoining man-agement districts. If adopted by DEP, the Lower Santa Fe and Ichetucknee rivers and pri-ority springs MFLs could be the first cross-boundary MFLs adopted under the new law. DEP, Suwannee River Water Management District, and St. Johns River Water Management District have established the North Florida Regional Water Supply Partnership to collaboratively address cross-boundary water sup-ply issues and solutions. Adoption of these MFLs by DEP is consistent with the partnerships strategies to develop a joint regional water supply plan for North Florida. The district is grateful that our lawmakers have put measures in place to effectively ensure our water resources that are impacted by groundwater withdraw-als outside of our jurisdic-tional boundaries remain protected while streamlin-ing the MFLs process, said district Executive Director Ann Shortelle. MFLs determine the amount of water that can be removed from the nat-ural system without caus-ing significant harm to the water resources and the ecology. When use of water shifts the hydrologic condi-tions below levels defined by MFLs, significant harm can occur. When a water body currently does not or will not meet an estab-lished MFL, a recovery or prevention plan must be developed. Water district board wantsflow standards TRIAL: Testimony turns technical as prosecution continues Continued From Page 1A TOUR: Lawmakers view water issues firsthand Continued From Page 1Astate lawmakers allocated $10 million in the state budget for springs resto-ration, protection and preservation. For Sen. Charles Dean, R-Inverness, the trip was his first time on the Santa Fe. All of this was worth everything weve been trying to do, he said. Im a Florida native. I love any kind of water you can put me around. Dean recently co-sponsored Senate House Bill 7 with state Rep. Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City, to require adjoin-ing water management districts to apply minimum flows and levels adopted by the state Department of Environmental Protection for state waters to manage cross-boundary impacts. One bill is one step in a long process to ensuring that were doing the right thing in terms of water quantity and water quality, Porter said. Its a never-ending process. Carlos Herd, director of water supply at SRWMD, said the minimum flows and levels measurements with-in his jurisdiction show that the areas water supply is below what is should be for the quantity of rain received over the past year. When the system is low, it affects fish habitats, water quality, the flood plain and more, he said. The river always comes up and goes down, Herd said. Its going to flood. Its going to go dry. But because of pumpage, we have to make sure it doesnt happen more frequently. Herd said the district needs to regain what was lost and maintain those levels through regulatory strat-egies, conservation, water resource development projects and alternative water supplies. North Central Florida has the highest concentration of first-magnitude springs in North America and con-tains 21 of the 33 springs in the state. Seven billion gallons of water flow daily down the Ichetucknee River, which is enough to provide water to every person in the state, Herd said. However, the river system still needs the water to survive. If Floridians allow water levels to decrease because of overpumping, its going to hurt the river and the economies that depend on it. We didnt get in this condition overnight, he said. Its taken a lot of years to get where we are at. Were not going to fix it in one day. As the population continues to grow, it places stress on the water, he said. Rich Budell, director of water policy for the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Sciences, said Floridians expect a high quality of life, which means access to pure water, open space and clear air. People forget that it takes a lot of time and money to generate all of that and theres a cost associated with that, Budell said. If we expect and want to have quality, abundant and inexpensive food, theres going to be some environmental impact. Thats not an excuse. Thats a fact. Herschel Vinyard, state DEP secretary, said the educational tours are essential to bring interested parties together. The springs are everyones responsibility, he said, and only when every-one works together can springs resto-ration be accomplished. A number of Floridas springs exist inside state parks, which continue to bring record numbers of visitors each year, Vinyard added. Its easier to learn when you see it, when you feel it and when youre in it, said Christine Aleknavich, leg-islative assistant for state Sen. Darren Soto. If we lose this, were going to lose tourism dollars.JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterThe clear waters of the Ichetucknee River can be seen mix ing with the tannic waters of the Santa Fe River, which have turned dark due to their passage through swamps filled with rotti ng vegetation. 3A SPECIALIZING IN:Q Non-Invasive Laparoscopic Gynecological SurgeryQ Adolescent Gynecology Q High and Low Risk Obstetrics Q Contraception Q Delivering at Shands Lake Shore Q In-Ofce ultrasounds for our patients Q 3D/4D Entertainment Scans New Patients Welcome Call today for a personal appointment:386-755-0500 449 SE Baya Drive Lake City, Florida 32025 www.dainagreenemd.comWE ARE WOMEN, WE ARE MOTHERS, WE UNDERSTANDBoard Certied Healthcare Provider?K>>ik^`gZg\rm^lmlbgma^h_\^Zg] offering DaVinci Robotic Surgeries.

I n Afghanistan, the Taliban have promised to kill Afghanis who worked for the Americans and their families. In Iraq, similar threats were made by radical Islamic insurgents. They were not idle threats. The terrorists proved quite diligent in carrying out those threats. Thus, the U.S. forces made a bargain, both explicit and implicit: Work for us and we will see that you and your families get visas for safe haven in America. In neither country have we come even close to holding up our half of the bargain, thanks to red tape and a U.S. bureaucracy that works only fitfully. Visas in Iraq were handed out only grudgingly and sparingly. Now the same thing is happening in Afghanistan. Apparently, we learned nothing in Iraq. In 2009, Congress passed a law to reward Afghanis who worked for U.S. forces. According to The Washington Post, As of last fall, though, only 32 of more than 5,700 Afghan applicants had received visas through the special program. Congress is contemplating legislation that would make it easier for the interpreters and their families to get visas. The best proposal would extend the program to 2015 and expand the number of visas granted annually to 5,000. It would help a lot in future recruiting if we could prove that we are people of our word.

As a Dad you personal-ly direct the future of your children. Unlike our politicians, the buck stops at Dad. The Mother nurtures and directs the children daily but the enforcement comes from Dad. I can remember my wife had a list on the refrigerator and our four boys knew what would happen if their name ended up on that list. With four boys you have to let the small stuff go. I would just point my finger at them and they knew they escaped that time. Our children have to know that we love them too much to let them get out of hand. Even when you come home tired from work you have to take them to ball practice or recitals. You have to man up and be a real Dad. Its not about you anymore, its all about your children. The boys got tired of hearing me say, You can never be wrong if you do whats right. By the grace of God we raised four boys and now are rewarded with them doing quite well. Out of this come our grandchildren. We can eat them up and let them do almost anything they want to while they are at their grandpar-ents home. So if you are a father, hold your head up, step up and be a real Dad. You will determine the future of your children. Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6.

From staff reports A man allegedly involved in the stabbing of a Pittsburgh Steelers offen sive lineman was arrested in Gainesville Friday after authorities suspected he had been hiding in Columbia County. Jerrell Whitlock, 26, faces charges of attempted homicide, attempted rob bery, aggravated assault and conspiracy for his alleged role in the June 1 attack on Mike Adams in Pittsburgh. Two other men are already jailed on similar charges. According to the Columbia County Sheriffs Office, Whitlock was dis covered at a Gainesville motel, along with his girlfriend, Precious Gethers. Both were arrested and taken to the Alachua County Jail. Authorities believed Whitlock had been hiding out in Lake City because he has family in the area. Police said detectives received a telephone call on Tuesday from a fam ily mem ber that helped lead them to Whitlocks motel room. Whitlock and his girlfriend were taken to the Alachua County Jail, police said. According to a criminal complaint, the men tried to rob Adams as he left a restaurant around 3 a.m. on June 1. Adams required surgery for the stab wounds, but the 6-foot-7, 345-pound lineman expects to recover. By DEREK GILLIAM firstname.lastname@example.org Columbia Countys CARC-Advocates for Citizens with Disabilities aims to raise more than $30,000 during its annual membership drive. Stephen Bailey, execu tive director for CARC, said the membership drive is the main fundraiser for the nonprofit organization. Thats our big push to get people to join CARC, Bailey said. People can participate at various levels. Individual memberships are sold for $50, and increase to $75 to gain the title of sponsor member. A $100 donation gains a member the title of Sunshine 100 member. The bronze level mem bership is reached with a $250 donation. Silver costs a $500 donation, and gold level is a $1,000 donation. A platinum membership is any donation of $2,500 or more. Every bit of it goes to help our clients, Bailey said. While the larger dona tions are directed more toward businesses, Bailey said, any donation would be accepted, including items that can be sold at CARCs thrift store, The House of Bargains, 500 N. Marion Ave. The House of Bargains is staffed by the people CARC helps. They sort the items, stock the shelves and run the cash register. We have staff that is there with them, but the whole purpose of the store is they help to run it, Bailey said. Items in good condition that dont need repairs are appropriate for The House of Bargains, he said. Bailey said the money raised during the member ship drive funds the group home, adult training and other services CARC pro vides. (The membership drive) sets us up going into our new fiscal year and allows us to know the amount of money we can allocate to our different programs, he said. Betsy Pottle, CARC board secretary, said shes been a member of CARC for 24 years because of the benefit it provides to the disabled. I always knew how important (CARC) was to citizens with disabilities and how much they help citizens with disabilities learn how to live on their own, she said. I wanted to be a part of that. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY JUNE 16, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 CARC launches membership campaign By JENNIFER CHASTEEN Special to the Reporter Youth and adults gathered at the Lake City Mall Wednesday morning to kick off a 4H Summer Walking Program resulting in over 26,000 steps taken in the opening week of the program. The walking program, headed up by Columbia County 4H coordinator Cindy Higgins and family and consumer sci ences 4H extension agent Jenny Jump, will be held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at different locations through out the summer, including Richardson Community Center, Lake City Mall and Lake DeSoto downtown. Youth and adults are encouraged to measure their steps during the program using a pedometer. According to letsmove.gov, over the past three decades, childhood obesity rates in America have tripled, and today, nearly one in three children in America are over weight or obese. Todays youth experience a very dif ferent lifestyle from those who grew up 30 to 50 years ago. Home-cooked meals have been replaced by ready-to-serve or fast food; walking to and from school, gym class and outdoor playtime have been replaced by modern transportation, chang es in school curriculum and video games. With the increase in childhood obesity in rural areas, researchers are concerned about the well-being of the youth of tomor row, Jump said. With youth out of school during the summer months, there needs to be a safe environment where they are able to be physically active. A 4-H walking program, Lets Get Walking, has been implemented for chil dren ages 5 to 18 who live in Columbia County. Guardians are also welcome to join but are not required to be present. 4-H staff will be on hand to supervise children during the program. The 4-H program will change locations throughout the summer, in order to provide different places to visit and see. Owen Cox, 8, participated in the open ing day of the program. He says he was surprised at the number of steps he took, saying that he thought it would be a lot less. We had used these (pedometers) at school before but not like this, Owen said, referring to the walking activities performed during the program, which included walking backwards and side-step ping. By rotating throughout Lake City, we hope that we are able to reach a larger audience, Jump said. At each event, participants will wear pedometers, provided by 4-H, and at the end of each session, all steps will be recorded. (10,000 steps a day is the rec ommended daily amount). Prizes will be awarded at the end of the program.

By AMANDA WILLIAMSON email@example.com Lake Citys police chief promised increased police presence in the neigh borhood surrounding Congress Avenue after sev eral residents spoke about children hanging out in the streets during Breakfast with the Chief on Saturday at First Baptist Church. We have already got something planned, Chief Argatha Gilmore, told about 50 concerned citi zens in reference to the young people gathering in the street. If Im stand ing on the sidewalk, theres really no law thats been violated. ... However, what Im hearing is that theyre impeding traffic. The police intend to think outside the box when approaching the young people to find ways to get them off the street, said support division Lt. Clint Vanbennekom. After Gilmore made an appeal to the public and local pastors to work within the community to help the kids, she said the police department believes the group is being headed by drug dealers, who need to be removed from the situ ation and the lives of the younger children. City Councilman Eugene Jefferson questioned whether there was a cur few in place for the chil dren. Gilmore said no. During the breakfast, Gilmore also presented crime statistics for Lake City. According to her presentation, the top five calls from March to May included theft, assault, bur glarly, drugs and criminal mischief. One murder occurred during 2013, keeping the year equal with 2012, she said. Forcible sex offenses increased to two in 2013 from one in 2012. Robbery increased to nine reported cases, up from five in 2012. Burglarlies dropped to 98 from 130 in 2012, while thefts increased to 148 from 137. Aggravated assaults fell from 48 in 2012 to 33 so far this year. One of the most sig nificant challenges for city police is property crimes, Gilmore said. If you see something, say some thing. As she ended the pre sentation, Gilmore told the audience to be vigilant and work together to help make the community safer.

Not long after that, he was walking the perime ter of a 1-acre plot of land. Two years later, in June 2012, his daughter got engaged in Napa Valley, Calif., to Justin Hoysradt. Preparation for the wed ding in the Dominican Republic began shortly after. Jennifer Hoysradt knew she wanted to get married in a gazebo to provide a flat surface for her father. The wedding date was set for June 7, 2013. But in April, Ronnie Bullard went in for surgery. While doctors expected him to spend one week in recov ery, complications arose. Three weeks passed with him in the hospital. Hoysradt worried her father wouldnt be cleared to fly by June. The day wouldnt have been the same without him, she said. When everyone was cheering, they werent only cheer ing for me, but for him, as well. They knew he worked really hard to get better. During the wedding, Hoystradt tried to keep from crying as he father continuously told her how pretty she was. To him, the day ended nicely. Ronnie Bullard began the trip down the aisle in a wheelchair. Halfway down, he told his only daughter: You can stop. I will walk from here. With a big smile on his face, he stood up from the wheelchair, maintained his balance and said to me, Lets go, Hoysradt said. Proudly he walked me down the aisle. ... The knowledge that my dad worked so hard for the last year in therapy, and at home so he could walk again brings me to tears. It was the most special gift a girl like me could have received. And even though Ronnie Bullard didnt have any major plans for Fathers Day, he said he will reflect on the gift he gave his daughter and the gift he gave himself.

Michigan International Speedway is in its second year with a newly paved surface, and drivers are again making 200 mph laps look almost routine. Carl Edwards topped Sprint Cup qualifying Friday with a lap of 202.452 mph. That run came a year after Marcos Ambrose won the pole at MIS at 203.241 mph the first time since 1987 the 200 mph mark was broken during qualifying. The new track is super fun to race on, Edwards said. The pavement seems like it has aged more in a year than a lot of new track surfaces have, and hopeful-ly we can keep developing a Goodyear tire and keep making it softer and softer to where it becomes the old Michigan here in a year or two. I think that is going to be awesome. Kurt Busch was second in qualifying, followed by Kasey Kahne. Points lead-er Jimmie Johnson was 17th, one spot behind Brad Keselowski. Dale Earnhardt Jr., who won at MIS last June to snap a streak of 143 Cup races without a victory, qualified 12th. Busch will ll start in the top two Sunday for the fourth time this year. T he FACA All State and All Academic teams were released last week. FACA is the Florida Athletic Coaches Association, but there must be a disconnect in how the teams are selected. Probably the players picked must be nominated by coaches. How else to explain how Kayli Kvistad, the Class 6A Player of the Year in the Florida Dairy Farmers Miss Softball sports award, was not selected. Or any number of other Lady Tigers. Shea Fisher and Taylor Newton of Lakewood Ranch made the team, as did Victoria Gonzalez of Pembroke Pines. Those were the teams Columbia High beat in the FHSAA Final Four. Even District 4-6A player Siera Ritter of St. Augustine made it. Kvistad finished second in the Miss Softball voting (players of the year in all eight classifications are on the ballot) behind Stephanie Texeira of Gulliver Prep. Texeira, an FIU signee, hit .588 with 17 home runs and 54 RBIs, and was 6-1 with an 1.21 ERA on the mound. Columbias Jimmy Williams, the Florida Dairy Farmers Class 6A Coach of the Year, placed third in the state voting, eight points behind winner Bryan Baucom of St. Thomas Aquinas which won the Class 7A state championship. The Florida Dairy Farmers Mr. Baseball was Tyler Danish of Durant Senior High. Danish, a Florida signee, was 15-1 with 156 strikeouts and 16 walks in 94 innings, and did not allow an earned run all season. He hit .411 with nine home runs. Alex Rodriguez was the first recepient of this award, back in 1993. Richard LaBounty of Pensacola Catholic was voted Florida Dairy Farmers Coach of the Year after leading the Crusaders to the Class 4A state title. Fort Whites Robby Howell and Kevin Dupree were named to the FACA All State Team, joining district mate Justin Forsyth of Williston. Duprees final numbers were a .353 average with six doubles, four home runs and 22 RBIs. He was 4-2 pitching with one save, a 1.26 ERA and 44 strikeouts in 39 innings. Howell was 7-3 with a 1.59 ERA and 95 strikeouts in 61 23 innings. He had a couple of home runs and 15 RBIs. Howell also was named to the All Academic Team, which helped his cause in signing with UCF. Brady Wilkinson also made the All Academic Team, as did Sam Bass for Columbia. Wilkinson was the shortstop for the Indians, the type of player that coaches say they wish they had nine on the roster. He was involved in a funny episode that brought back old memories. When I was a boy, Joe Roberts (who is Kvistads grandfather) was playing baseball for CHS. One time on a called strike he stuck out his arm to show the umpire that the pitch was high. He was quickly called down by the coach and it stuck with me because nobody in those days said anything to any official. Wilkinson, like so many other players, had the habit of holding up his hand to the plate umpire Derek Jeter style until they get set in the batters box. This one time, the umpire let the pitcher throw and it surprised Wilkinson. He backed out and began explaining to the umpire what holding up his hand meant. Seems the umpire had his own explanation. As salutatorian for Fort Whites senior class, Wilkinson was smart enough to heed the advice and I never saw him using the Jeter move for the rest of the season.2BSPORTS CHEAP SEATS Tim KirbyPhone: (386) email@example.com Q Tim Kirby is sports editor of the Lake City Reporter All State and oversights COURTESYThe Health Center of Lake City won second place in the La ke City/Columbia County Babe Ruth 8U League for 2013.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER OUTDOORS SUNDAY, JUNE 16, 2013 Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 By JOHN CIMBARO and BOB WATTENDORFR ecently, North Florida anglers and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) fishery biologists were heartbroken to see the white bellies of numerous fish floating in Lake Victor. Lake Victor is a 130-acre, FWC-managed project in Holmes County. The FWC has stocked fish, managed vegetation, provided boating access, created fish attractors and spawning beds and otherwise strove to create quality fishing. So, what happened, and could it happen to a lake near you? It seems like a case of nature taking its course and it happens throughout the state each summer. In this case, it appears that heavy rainfalls flushed organic matter into the lake and the organic matter began to decompose, resulting in a low-dissolved-oxygen (DO) fish kill. As in most such cases, the die-off did not kill all the fish and, when the water cleared and the sun came out, oxygen levels recovered and biologists observed surviving fish. This type of fish kill is pretty much a natural occurrence, and especially prevalent in summer when a number of factors can come together to deplete the oxygen dissolved in the water. Fish absorb this oxygen from the water using their gills. A healthy lake or river normally has 7-9 parts per million (ppm) of oxygen, which is an ideal level for most fish. When the water temperature is lower, more oxygen dissolves into it. When temperatures rise, DO levels naturally drop due to reduced solubility. If the level drops below 5 ppm, many fish start showing adverse impacts, and below 2 ppm it can be lethal, if it lasts very long. Some species of fish are better adapted to low DO conditions, such as bowfin or gar, but most sunfishes (bass, bream, and crappie) are less tolerant. Aquatic plants produce most of the oxygen in lakes through photosynthesis, which occurs when green (chlorophyll) cells convert light into energy. However, at night or when there is inadequate light, plants use oxygen and give off carbon dioxide. Additional oxygen enters the water from the atmosphere by diffusion. In addition to fish using oxygen and plants removing it at night, a major demand on oxygen comes from decomposition of dead plant and animal tissue (organic matter). Area residents contacted the FWC about the fish kill in Lake Victor on April 17, after seeing dying fish floating. Biologists responded immediately and determined the DO level in much of the lake with pea-green water was 0.0 to 2.0 ppm, enough to cause the kill. Often, descriptions of lakes being pea-green relate to algal blooms, another insidious response to nutrients (decaying plant material, or organic fertilizers flushed from yards or crops by rain). These blooms block light to rooted plants so they do not produce as much oxygen. When algae die, they further increase the bacterial bloom. Biologists visited daily for several weeks, documenting the number of dead fish, and observed some schools of fingerling bass and bream from the spring spawn and a few bass on beds. There was no visual evidence of chemical pollution, toxic algal blooms or signs of disease among the dead fish. Once oxygen levels build back up, the FWC will restock the lake with fingerling sport fish.

Your marketplace source for Lake City and Columbia County JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Dennis Redd, co-owner and operator of the new CiCis Pizza restaurant, uses a saw during construction. The restaurant, housed in the old Radio Shack next to Big Lots, is slated for completion around October. By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org Construction and demolition crews have begun work on a new buffet-style eatery that is scheduled to open in Lake City in the fall. Cicis Pizza will be located at 2329 W. US Highway 90, as part of the Gleason Center, near the Big Lots store. Dennis Redd, a co-owner of the business along with John Harrington, said they plan to open in just a few months. Were doing most of the construction ourselves, but we still sublet some of the work out, Redd said. Basically, were doing it ourselves to save a lot of money. We should be open somewhere around Oct. 1. The Lake City Planning and Growth department issued Redd and Harrington a commercial renovation permit on June 3 for renovation work at the site. A pasta, desert and pizza bar will be featured in the restaurant. Redd said the buffet bar will offer 17 kinds of pizza. Its eat all you can eat, he said. Redd said he and Harrington have been working on plans to bring the eat ery to Lake City for a couple of years. Its something that we came up with about two years ago, he said. ... Weve had to get approval, a location and all that good stuff before we actually started. Cicis Pizza will be housed in a build ing that was formerly used by another establishment and Redd and Harrington have be converting the site to a restau rant. Were just in the beginning stages of renovating the building, Redd said. Weve got about three more months worth of renovations. Cicis Pizza coming to Lake City 1CColumbia Inc.

By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVARAssociated PressWASHINGTON Its called the Affordable Care Act, but President Barack Obamas health care law may turn out to be unaf-fordable for many low-wage workers, including employ-ees at big chain restaurants, retail stores and hotels. That might seem strange since the law requires medi-um-sized and large employ-ers to offer affordable coverage or face fines. But whats reasonable? Because of a wrinkle in the law, companies can meet their legal obligations by offering policies that would be too expensive for many low-wage workers. For the employee, its like a mirage attractive but out of reach. The company can get off the hook, say corpo-rate consultants and policy experts, but the employee could still face a federal requirement to get health insurance. Many are expected to remain uninsured, possibly risking fines. Thats due to another provision: the law says workers with an offer of affordable workplace coverage arent entitled to new tax credits for private insurance, which could be a better deal for those on the lower rungs of the mid-dle class. Some supporters of the law are disappointed. It smacks of todays Catch-22 insurance rules. Some people may not gain the benefit of afford-able employer coverage, acknowledged Ron Pollack, president of Families USA, a liberal advocacy group leading efforts to get unin-sured people signed up for coverage next year. It is an imperfection in the new law, Pollack added. The new law is a big step in the right direc-tion, but it is not perfect, and it will require future improvements. Andy Stern, former president of the Service Employees International Union, the 2-million-mem-ber service-sector labor union, called the provision an avoidance opportunity for big business. SEIU pro-vided grass-roots support during Obamas long strug-gle to push the bill through Congress. The law is complicated, but essentially companies with 50 or more full-time workers are required to offer coverage that meets certain basic standards and costs no more than 9.5 percent of an employ-ees income. Failure to do so means fines for the employer. (Full-time work is defined as 30 or more hours a week, on average.) But do the math from the workers side: For an employee making $21,000 a year, 9.5 percent of their income could mean premi-ums as high as $1,995 and the insurance would still be considered affordable. Even a premium of $1,000 close to the cur-rent average for employee-only coverage could be unaffordable for someone stretching earnings in the low $20,000s. With such a small income, there is just not any left over for health insurance, said Shannon Demaree, head of actuarial services for the Lockton Benefit Group. What the government is requiring employers to do isnt really something their low-paid employees want. Based in Kansas City, Mo., Lockton is an insur-ance broker and benefits consultant that caters to many medium-sized busi-nesses affected by the health care law. Actuaries like Demaree specialize in cost estimates. Another thing to keep in mind: premiums wouldnt be the only expense for employees. For a basic plan, they could also face an annual deductible amount-ing to $3,000 or so, before insurance starts paying. If you make $20,000, are you really going to buy that? asked Tracy Watts, health care reform leader at Mercer, a major benefits consulting firm. And low-wage workers making more than about $15,900 wont be eligible for the laws Medicaid expansion, shutting down another possibility for get-ting covered. Its not exactly the picture the administration has painted. The president por-trays his health care law as economic relief for strug-gling workers. Lets make sure that everybody who is out there working hard and doing the right thing, that theyre not going to go bankrupt because they get sick, that theyre going to have health care they can count on, Obama said in a Chicago appearance last summer during the presi-dential campaign. And we got that done. White House senior communications advisor Tara McGuinness downplayed concerns. There has been a lot of conjecture about what people might do or could do, but this hasnt actually happened yet, she said. The gap between sky-is-falling predictions about the health law and what is happening is very wide. The administration believes most businesses want to do right by their employees and will con-tinue to use tax breaks to provide quality coverage to their workers, she added. Health insurance is tax deductible for employers, and the health law provides additional tax breaks to help small businesses. Virtually all major employers currently offer health insurance, although skimpy policies offered to many low-wage workers may not meet the require-ments of the new law. Companies affected have been reluctant to telegraph how they plan to comply. It clearly isnt going to be a morale-boosting moment when you redo your health plan to discourage partici-pation, said Stern, the for-mer labor leader, now a senior fellow at Columbia University. Its not some-thing most want to adver-tise until they are sure its the right decision. 2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 16, 2013 Name That Company=fle[\[`e(0/)Xe[YXj\[`e JXeAfj\#:Xc`]%#@dXpZfeali\ `dX^\jf]Yl`c[`e^jdX[\]ifdjle$ [i`\[\Xik_%@dX_`^_$k\Z_ZfdgXep# k_fl^_#n`k_fe\f]dpdX`egif[lZkj eXd\[X]k\iXZfddfeZ`iZljg\i$ ]fid\i%Dfi\k_Xe0'g\iZ\ekf]Zi\$ Xk`m\gifjlj\dpg_fkf$\[`k`e^jf]knXi\# Xe[dfi\k_Xe,#'''kfg^cfYXcYiXe[ji\cp fedp[`^`kXcdXib\k`e^jfclk`fej%@\dgcfp dfi\k_Xe((#'''g\fgc\Xifle[k_\nfic[#Xe[ @^\e\iXk\XYflk_Xc]dpi\m\el\XYifX[%Dp jkfZb_Xj^X`e\[XYflk()%+g\iZ\ekXeelXccp#fe Xm\iX^\#fm\ik_\gXjk)'p\Xij%@iXb\`edfi\ k_Xe+Y`cc`feXeelXccp%N_fXd@6Know the answer?

John Bogle, the father of index investing, once likened ETFs to a shotgun, saying, They can be used for self-defense, or they can be used for suicide. Trading in and out of ETFs eats up any cost benefit by racking up trading costs. (Trading in and out of any stocks rapidly can also hurt your performance.) ETFs are not always great for those who dollar-cost average, investing small sums systematically to build up a portfolio. Since you invest in ETFs like stocks, through your brokerage, you pay trading commissions to do so. Thus, dollar cost averaging with small sums can be costly. Still, if you want to invest a modest sum in a broad index, you can buy a few shares of it via an ETF. Before buying any ETF, read up on it to understand exactly what its holdings and fees are.

Its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio was recently 9.7, well below its five-year average of about 18. And, with its low valuation comes a hefty dividend yield, recently at 2.6 percent. Clearly, few are expecting the stock to do much over the next few years, with earnings projected to grow by 6.7 percent annually over the coming five years. But low expectations might actually turn out to be good news for investors in Xerox, as it gives the company a low hurdle to clear. Its future is promising, as Xerox has been moving away from a hardware focus and ring-ing up lots of long-term service contracts, many with the federal and state governments. Xerox is generating a lot of cash from its business, too. Its free cash flow yield shows a company creating 17.4 cents of cash profit for every dollar invested in it. Xerox may ultimately use its cash to pay bigger dividends, to buy back shares (increasing the size of your stake in the company for every share it takes off the table) or to reinvest in its business and maintain its lead over rivals for years to come. Give it some consideration.

For several years I did much better than most funds and indexes, but lately Ive really gotten battered. Ive recently considered moving away from a vowel to one of the harder consonants, those with a Scrabble tile value above seven. Your thoughts? C.S., Patagonia, Ariz. The Fool Responds: Considering that most stock mutual funds that are managed by pros under-perform the overall market, its not surprising that somewhat random stock picks can do relatively well. The Wall Street Journal famously pitted professional stock pickers against a set of stocks chosen at random (in theory by darts aimed at stock listings) and the darts did surprisingly well. When it comes to your hard-earned dollars, though, its best not to gamble so much. Many of us would do well to just invest in the broad-market indexes (such as S&P 500-based or whole-market-based ones) that tend to beat the pros.Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

Twenty-nine years pass and things change. Gas is often near $4 a gallon. The county operating budget is now about $56 million. But Williams is still the person responsible for making sure roads are passable and county services con tinue. In a job where the aver age tenure is just under 7 years, Williams stay is unusual. In fact, the Florida Association of Counties could name only one county manager who recently stayed as long. John Gallager, county administrator for Pasco County, guided Pasco County for 31 years, but he retired on May 31. Florida Association of Counties offficials do not keep track of tenure for managers, but could not name anyone who stayed in one place longer than Williams. The one thing you cant argue about is that tenure creates stability, Williams said. When Williams started in 1984, the county didnt have a zoning ordinance. He remembers when the county went to implement a zoning ordinance the line of people wanting to voice their concerns streached out into the parking lot of the court house. One thing I like about this job is its never dull, its never boring and its dynamic, Williams said. It changes day to day. Understanding how to communicate with all dif ferent types of people is important, Williams said. Listening to people is part of the job. Its a big part of the job.

2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JUNE 16, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 Everyone needs to protect state waters Vet recommends medical pot for pets pain By SUE MANNING Associated Press LOS ANGELES Until she introduced magic cheese to her sick and aging bulldog, Laura Bugni-Daniel watched him suf fer for two years. Hed spend his days lying down or throwing up. Today, at age 12, he plays like a puppy through the day, his fur is soft and he sleeps at night, soothed not by magic, but by the dose of marijuana in that cheese. Bugni-Daniel is part of a grow ing movement to give medical marijuana to pets in pain. Many urge caution until theres bet ter science behind it. But stories abound about changes in sick and dying pets after theyve been given cannabis even though it isnt a proven pain killer for man or mutt, and its an illicit drug under federal law despite being legal for people in 19 states and the District of Columbia. Leading the charge is Los Angeles veterinarian Doug Kramer, 36, known as the Vet Guru, who felt it was his duty to speak out while he has no family that would feel a verbal or finan cial backlash. I grew tired of euthanizing pets when I wasnt doing every thing I could to make their lives better, he said. I felt like I was letting them down. Pot eased his Siberian hus kys pain during her final weeks, after she had surgery to remove tumors. Not only did Nikita stop whimpering while using canna bis, but she started eating, gain ing weight and meeting him at the door again. It gave him six extra weeks with his dog before he had to euthanize her, he says. It wasnt a cure, but he thinks it freed her of pain and improved her last days. ome other vets contacted said they share Kramers view on pot, but they wouldnt talk on the record for fear of arrest or retali ation. Kramer hasnt lost any clients over his view, but he was asked not to return to some of the clinics where he volunteered or relieved other vets because of concerns over the negative image his advocacy creates, he said. Dr. Duncan Lascelles, a pro fessor of surgery and pain man agement at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine, thought about study ing marijuana a decade ago. He didnt, not for lack of interest, but because the timing was wrong. I have been considering look ing at that field again because I think it does have a lot of poten tial, he said. He also figures those all-impor tant grants needed for research will be available now. Testing could take 10 years or more to be sure a pain killer will be effective and free of side effects, Lascelles said. Kramer said its unconscionable to let a decade pass, when millions of pets will die of illness and old age. Vets who want traditional testing point to a study by two Colorado animal hospitals that compared the number of dogs treated for what appeared to be accidental marijuana overdoses between 2005 and 2010 with increases in the number of mari juana licenses issued. As regis trations increased 146-fold, the number of sickened pets went up four-fold. Sometimes public sentiment and activity gets ahead of the sci entific background and that can be dangerous, said Barry Kellogg, senior veterinary adviser to the Humane Society of the United States. While two dogs with pot in their system died in the Colorado sur vey, hallucinogenic reactions may make dogs wobbly on their legs, raise their pulse and cause dribbly urine, said Dr. Karl Jandrey, an emergency and critical care vet at the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital at the University of California, Davis. But pot clinic managers say that a proper dose of the drug will pre vent a bad reaction. Jessica LeRoux of Twirling Hippy Confections in Denver made custom treats that helped extend the life of her last service dog, a black Lab-border collie mix named Thor. I got the 15th year out of that relationship because of the prod uct I made for him, she said. Old or ailing pets who take cannabis usually experience an immediate boost in appetite and relief from pain. That lets them get around, relieve themselves without help, sleep better and enjoy their families until age or disease catches up, LeRoux said in explaining how the cannabis helps pets. At La Brea Compassionate Caregivers in Los Angeles, man ager Megan Hanley recommends a drop of liquid marijuana extract marketed as Companion Cannabis for every 10 pounds of dog. It can be spread on cheese or bread. Its a revolutionary product and response to it has been tre mendous in the last year, she said. Bugni-Daniel, in Divide, Mont., is allowed to have four marijuana plants under state law for her medical needs. She turns that into extract for her and Rabito. Marijuana has been like the fountain of youth for the American bulldog. Its really nice to see your sick pet, for his last moments or weeks or months, be happy and not real sick and dealing with needles and surgery, Bugni-Daniel said. TRAVEL: Bike ride in rural Croatia Continued From Page 1D hearing about the war with Serbia just 20 years ago. Somewhere along our bike ride we passed by a house that was abandoned and still had bullet holes on the front and the roof caved in from a mortar or bomb. This had a pretty big impact on me because I remembered hearing about it in the news when it was happening. Thats the first time Id experi enced anything like that history happening in my lifetime, not just some thing Id read about in a book. The house and winery where we started and finished our bike ride was newly rebuilt, but there was one area where you could still see the original stone structure that sur vived the war. Our stops on the bike ride included a bridge over two of the rivers for photo ops and an old monastery where an old monk (whos often grouchy) still lives, and sometimes you could get in to see the chapel and sometimes not. The door was locked, so we couldnt get in. The home sites along the way were very interest ing and in many stages of construction. But the land around them was always beautiful. There were a lot of pretty rose bushes. This area boasts a lot of agricul ture, mostly grapes, olives and figs. And most of the families that farm, farm for their own use. Their two main industries are agri culture and tourism. Our next stop was at the bottom of a hill, where we parked our bikes and walked up to a natural spring where we all filled up our water bottles with spring water. Then we spotted the waterfall and old mill house across the street and walked over there for some more pic tures. We rode through the vil lage of Gruda on our way through the cypress forest and back to the house and winery. We were able to get some rest while tasting some local wines. We start ed with a toast with some Grappa. I would compare it to our moonshine. Its basically what they called boiled alcohol not for sipping but shooting back. Next, Pera translated for us as the junior house mas ter (their title, not mine) welcomed us and intro duced us to his wines. We started with a white wine, Maristina. It was not bad, but I think we all liked the red far better. It was called Veritas, and was a blend of two different kinds of red. Crazily enough, a lot of the time Croatians mix their wine with either water or, believe it or not, Coke. (Uggh!) Croatia and this bike riding experience through the countryside was one of my favorite days. Sandy Kishton is a free lance travel writer who lives in Lake City. Contact her at email@example.com. Pets ASSOCIATED PRESS Dr. Douglas Kramer applies pain-relieving cannabis oil to his dog Mason in his mobile surgical truck in Los Angeles. Mason had undergone multiple surgeries to remove cancerous growths. Kramer is a leading advocate to make medical marijuana more widely available for treating pets. Others, however, urge caution until theres better science behind it. Online: Kramer: www.vetguru. com Companion Cannabis: www.companioncannabis. com HAPPENINGS Schneerer 65th anniversary Elmer C. and Dorothy I. Schneerer, of Lake City, will celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary on June 19, 2013. Dorothy Irene Barber and Elmer Schneerer exchanged vows on June 19, 1948, in Cleveland, Ohio. They plan to celebrate their anniversary with fam ily and friends at home. The couple have five children, 12 grand children and four great-grandchil dren. The Schneerers have been residents of Lake City for 20 years. S ome people may argue that my opinions on this issue are rather harsh, and oth ers may say that they are not nearly harsh enough. But many people, along with state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, believe that the water issue is the most important long-range issue facing Florida. They believe that every Floridian has an obliga tion to protect our water resources for future gen erations. On the other hand, there are still many resi dents and snowbirds who have no intention of lifting a finger to become part of the solution. They use that finger, instead, to point to other people and groups. They want water permits to be repealed, farms to be abandoned, lawns and landscapes be left dry and unfertilized. They want government to step in, impose regulations, and take care of everything. It doesnt have to work that way. Hopefully, the majority of us want to find options that work for us individually, that are sci entifically based and that arent catch-all arbitrary rules and laws handed to us by policy makers. But it is absolutely imperative that each and every one of us comply with best man agement practices (BMPs) that limit the movement of pollutants to our waters. The lawn and landscape maintenance industry is complying. Any person who takes payment for working on your lawn or plantings must have a license to spray any insec ticide or herbicide, even over-the-counter soaps and oils. By Jan. 1, any person who applies fertilizer to your lawn or plants for pay must have a fertil izer application license. To obtain either of these licenses, the worker must receive training on safe and proper chemical use in the environment. You should request to see their license. Another major source of nutrient and pesticide pollution is agricultural crop production. The state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) has developed BMPs for most agricul tural commodities, such as vegetable and row crops, cattle operations, nurser ies, horse farms, citrus and others. Implementing these BMPs is a key fac tor of agricultures environ mental stewardship role. FDACS has held off the state Legislature from imposing permitting requirements by offering to let growers and produc ers voluntarily sign up to implement BMPs. This continued support wont last, however, if participa tion does not improve. I encourage everyone with operations that add to the family income and are 5 to 5,000 acres or more to contact Mace Bauer, agri culture extension agent, at 752-5384 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org Learn about the process, what it takes to sign an intent to comply and how to become part of the solu tion.

By WAYNE PARRYAssociated PressWILDWOOD, N.J. Hindsight will soon be punishable by a $25 fine in this Jersey Shore resort. Wildwood passed a law Wednesday night banning overly saggy pants on the boardwalk, prompted by numerous complaints from longtime visitors about having to see peoples rear ends hanging out in pub-lic. Subsequent violations of the law, which could take effect as early as July 2, could result in fines as high as $200, and 40 hours of community service. Civil libertarians say the law is unconstitution-al and predict it will be overturned if challenged in court. But Mayor Ernest Troiano Jr. said the issue is simple. This is just adding a little bit of decency to our town, he said. Its amaz-ing and this is a pun how far decency has fallen through the cracks. Wildwood is a resort town near the southern-most tip of New Jersey. It is famous for its doo-wop 50s musical culture, its neon art-deco motels, and ridicu-lously wide beaches that are free a rarity in New Jersey, which forces most other beachgoers to pay for the privilege. The law passed unanimously, and no one spoke against it. Several residents strongly supported the law. Its long overdue, said Mary Erceg. People who choose to dress like that offend any person. There has to be some common standard of decency. It offends all of us. We need it, added resident Dennis Flynn. This is our city. You have to respect it. Known popularly as sagging, the trend origi-nated in the U.S. prison system, where inmates are not allowed to wear belts. It was popularized by hip-hop artists and embraced by youths. Authorities in suburbs of New Orleans, Chicago, Atlanta, Detroit, Miami and Jacksonville, Fla., are among those who have passed laws banning overly droopy pants. Bathing suits are already prohibited for both sexes on the Wildwood board-walk, unless covered up by other clothing. City Commissioner Pete Byron said the city is not trying to be the fashion police. Theres a line that gets crossed between being a fashion statement and being obnoxious, he said. Families can feel threat-ened. Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JUNE 16, 2013 3D By JAY REEVESAssociated PressBIRMINGHAM, Ala. It feels like Birmingham finally is emerging from the shadows cast by the ugly racial violence of 1963. Long haunted by blackand-white newsreel footage of the fire hoses and police dogs city leaders turned on blacks demonstrating for civil rights, the city has a new vibe thats generat-ing buzz all its own 50 years later. Birminghams culinary scene is a jewel, with nationally known chefs and restaurants, and decades of white flight are giving way to people moving into flats and condominiums with bare brick walls in once-vacant downtown buildings. The tables are full at trendy bars and bistros nestled in old brick mercantile buildings. The citys minor league baseball team relocated this season from the sub-urbs and is drawing big crowds to a new downtown stadium that opens to Birminghams skyline. Its across the street from an urban park built on what was an unsightly lot strewn with weeds and gravel along railroad lines. Combine all that with a thriving nightclub scene, new craft breweries and an entertainment district that has started opening, and suddenly Birmingham is becoming a hot spot for residents and visitors alike. BY MELISSA RAYWORTHAssociated PressDebbie Corrigan will turn 55 this year. A baby boomer with children and grandchildren, she loves researching her family his-tory. Last year, Corrigan, of Winchester, Va., wanted to cre-ate something permanent out of her research a tangible repre-sentation of her family tree that could hang on a living room wall. But nothing she found was quite right. When I did some searching on the Web to see what was being done for family trees, youd see all these family trees that looked like real trees, she says. I wanted to make something people could give their kids that their kids would actually want to hang on a wall. So Corrigan used her computer to design her own modern family tree. Relatives liked it so much, they asked her to design ones for them, and soon she began offering her services on the craft website Etsy.com as a researcher and designer of graphic family trees. Many of her customers are fellow baby boomers seeking to illustrate their personal histories in creative ways. Some make printed books and wall art to cel-ebrate their past. The website Blurb.com has become a popular destination for creating personal books that pre-serve thoughts and memories. Theres something really powerful about the printed book to baby boomers, in particular, says Brenna Lewis, head of marketing and products at Blurb. Young enough to use web-based tools enthusiastically, theyre also old enough to appreciate the value of a tangible, hard copy. Many boomers, Lewis says, are creating impressive, coffee-table books of their own photos, accompanied by long paragraphs of text, or personal cookbooks detailing favorite family recipes and memories. Some write about the life lessons they want to teach the next generation. Others chronicle their recollections of the moments captured in old family photos. Children of aging boomers are also using Blurb and similar web-sites to create history books for their families, interviewing their parents and grandparents to pre-serve their wisdom. Finding raw material is easier than ever: Along with writing out their personal thoughts, many boomers are using tools like Ancestry.com to gather copies of census forms, military records, and other data that can be used in books or works of art. Technology has absolutely been a game-changer for fam-ily history. It has made global records available from the com-fort of your home, says Ancestry.coms family historian Michelle Ercanbrack. With all this data and a lifetime of experiences to share, the cre-ative options are unlimited. Here are three relatively easy and inex-pensive projects that make great vehicles for preserving history and knowledge, and also could be memorable gifts for relatives and friends:Project 1: Photo Book With Lengthy CaptionsMany websites, including Shutterfly.com and Blurb.com, offer easy-to-use templates for creating photo books. Choose one that offers customizable pages with plenty of room for text. Choose a focus for the book, perhaps zeroing in on images from a particular period of your life or one specific place you lived. Then write long captions related to these photos, sharing personal observations and details with future generations. Another option: Schedule a photo session with your extended family, and then write your recol-lections about what was happen-ing in your life and in the world when each family member was born, or what youd like each person to know about your life as they grow up. Pair the best photos from the shoot with your observations to create a keep-sake book for the family.Project 2: Graphic Family Tree with AnnotationsGenealogy websites can provide family tree data. Once your research is done, use your imagi-nation to decide how to lay out the information. Surf websites like Etsy.com to find an artist to help you design your tree, or just browse for inspiration. Consider collaborating with artistic fam-ily members, and perhaps even getting grandkids involved in the research or design work. Go back as far as you can, adding brief details or photos of each ancestor. And pair the graphic family tree with a booklet of nota-tions about things that were hap-pening in local or world history at the time each person was born, and how these events might have affected their lives.Project 3: Family CookbookGather recipes from relatives or provide your own, perhaps focusing on dishes you loved as a child or ones you remem-ber family members cooking on long-ago special occasions. Add paragraphs that detail your recol-lections. What was happening in your life when you first tried or most enjoyed each dish? Add photos of each finished recipe and also photos of family members from the era the dish-es were served at your house. Printing can be done inexpen-sively and instantly at FedEx/Kinkos, or more impressively through a personal publishing website like Blurb. Creative projects for passing down memories Saggy pants on boardwalktaboo in New Jersey town ASSOCIATED PRESSA young man wears saggy pants on the Wildwood, N.J. boardwalk.

Once dying, Birmingham suddenly has trendy vibe ASSOCIATED PRESSDowntown buildings provide a backdrop along the walkw ay at Railroad Park in Birmingham, Ala. The city has a new vibe thats generating buzz 50 years after the racial unrest of 1963 gave it a lasting stigma. WILLIAMS: 29 years on the job Continued From Page 1Dto communicate, Williams said. That, is something you cant go to school and learn. The most unusual job responsibility Williams undertakes -and the one most people dont even know about -is dispos-ing of unclaimed human remains. Once in the late 1980s, a native Guatemalan died on I-75 in Columbia County. He had no family in America so Williams contacted the Guatemalan embassy in Miami. It was so remote, that I am told by the embassy, they literally had to send a runner from one location to where this person lived becasue there was no other form of communication, Williams said. When the family was notified, they thanked the carrier but said they had no means to bring the dead man home. The responsibility of arranging funeral ser-vices fell to Williams. Jobs not boring, Williams said. Remember, I told you now. 3DLIFE

DEAR ABBY: I am writing you not because of a problem, but because of two special people in my life. I have two daughters, both in their 20s. They are well-educated and happy. I adore them. My wife and I consider ourselves lucky to be their parents. We never pushed them toward goals or to succeed, but they are self-motivated and confident. I have come to the conclusion that some of us are quite blessed. Id like you to know that at least two parents in this world realize that we are, and that we count our bless-ings. I am older now, and my relationship with my daughters continues to mature and grow. Older age has its joys, too some far deeper than I had ever imagined. -AN APPRECIATIVE FATHER IN OREGON DEAR APPRECIATIVE FATHER: Thank you for writing an upper of a let-ter. Your daughters didnt turn out so well by magic, and congratulations to you and your wife for what was obviously successful par-enting. I would like to wish you a very happy Fathers Day and offer the same to fathers everywhere -birth fathers, stepfathers, adop-tive fathers, foster fathers, and those caring men who mentor children and fill the role of absent fathers. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My son is married to a wonderful young woman, Dana, and they have a small baby. Dana suffered a brain inju-ry years ago that left her somewhat developmentally delayed. Until the baby was born, it wasnt much of an issue, but it is becoming apparent that Dana is not always able to parent the child appropriately. (She will leave her on a table to get a diaper, doesnt feed her according to sched-ule and doesnt dress her warmly in cold weather.) My son takes care of things when hes home, but he works every day. When I think of my own daughters development, I see that Dana is operating at approximately a middle-teen level even though shes 28. Can you advise what I can do to ensure my granddaughter is safe? -LOVES DANA DEAR LOVES DANA: If Dana would leave the baby on a table while she went to get a diaper, would she also leave the baby in a tub while she went to answer a phone? If you havent voiced your concerns to your son, please do because your granddaugh-ter could be seriously injured. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My wife of 37 years is calling out another mans name and moving her lips in her sleep. I dont recognize the name and I believe it might be someone she works with. Should I be concerned? -SLEEPLESS IN TEXAS DEAR SLEEPLESS: You should be curious, but sleep-talking is not necessarily indicative of romance. If you havent already, ask her who the man of her dreams is. She could be mumbling the name of an old boyfriend from high school or that of a beloved pet from child-hood. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make changes, but before doing so discuss your plans with anyone who may be affected by your choices. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Speak up, share your thoughts and most of all take control and follow through with your plans. Good ideas coupled with hard work and patience will ensure that you excel in your plans. Love is in the stars. +++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Do something that will make you feel good about what you have to offer. Giving back to an organiza-tion or cause you feel akin to will help you get a clear-er vision regarding what you should do personally or professionally. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Make practical chang-es to your domestic envi-ronment that will ensure you are not going to be stressed out over finances. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): An unpredictable approach to whatever you do will keep someone in check who is trying to put demands on you. Dont cave under pressure when you should be taking control and following a path that suits your needs. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Participating in a com-munity event, a challenge or a cause you believe in will lead to interest-ing friendships, love and romance or a new and improved attitude and view of a situation you face with a colleague or partner. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Dont let anyone pres-sure you or cause you to second-guess your next move. Indulge in some-thing that interests you or develop a plan that will take you in a new direc-tion. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Get involved in activi-ties and you will discover information that will help you move forward with a unique project. Your mem-ory will serve you well, allowing you to reconnect with someone from your past that has something to offer you now. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Dont make assumptions, especially where money is involved. Dig deep and find out the exact figures and facts required to make a sound decision. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): A sudden change in your status or reputa-tion will occur if you make an impulsive decision regarding your personal life. Dont make changes without considering all the pros and cons. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Take on a chal-lenge that will get you moving and test your skills. Broaden your hori-zons through experiences you encounter and by dealing with people try-ing to accomplish similar personal goals. Open your mind to new possibilities and lifestyles. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Money is heading your way from an unusual source. Love is high-lighted, and sharing with someone you feel emotion-ally in tune with will bring about changes as well as demands. Make sure you are ready to compromise before you make a commit-ment. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across ,QVHFWVIHHOHU'RXEOHSODWLQXP 6WHHO\'DQDOEXP .LWWHQVVRXQG6KDUSDVBBB/LNHVRPHVWLPXOL3DUWLFLSDWHGLQD GHUE\ 2QHRIVHYHUDO /RXLVHV BBB/DXURKLMDFNHG VKLSRI )RXQWDLQVLWH6OLJKWHVWLGHD7HPSOHLQ +ROO\ZRRG &RORUOHVVVRUW3DUWVRIXQDUFKLSHO3ROLWHKHOSHUV TXHVWLRQ &RXSGBBB/LNH$FURVVLQ VSRUWVDQQDOV .HHSWKLQNLQJ DERXWDVDYLFWRU\ %HWWH0LGOHUHJ35 Assessor1HYHUWKHOHVV EULHIO\ /LIW%LEOLFDOGU\ PHDVXUH 5LVHVXSRQWZR OHJV )UDQNIXUWVULYHU /LNHVRPH%UDWHQ/DVVLHDQG 0DUPDGXNHHJ &LUFXVHPSOR\HHV6XSHU%RZOGLY+RPHRI2G\VVHXV6WDULQWKH6ZDQ FRQVWHOODWLRQ BBBQHXWULQR3DUDSV\FKRORJLFDO VXEM 3DQKDQGOHUV59 Crosses5DZPHDWGLVK1RWGXSHGE\$FURVVZKRPDGH WKHFRYHUVRI7LPH1HZVZHHNDQG6SRUWV,OOXVWUDWHGLQWKHVDPHZHHN &'BBB7KH\PD\EHOHIWE\ WKHVLGHRIWKHURDG /LNHPDUVKHV3DWVRQWKHEDFN PD\EH *UDGHVFKRROVXEM1RZRUQHYHU$EEU6RPHZRRGV JUHHQHU\ 0RYHOLNHDSHQJXLQ7KH(DJOHVRQD VFRUHERDUG &KDUOHQHZKR SOD\HG/XF\RQ'DOODV 6WHUHRW\SLFDO QHLJKERUV 7KLUGEDVHFRDFKV XUJLQJPD\EH %HQ+XUIRURQH &DWFK\RXODWHU-D]]WUXPSHWHU %DNHU /DFN5HJUHWVBBBKDGD IHZ0\:D\O\ULF 7LWIRUWDW"%ULGJHIHDWXUH6HWSLHFHV"7LPHDQG 1HZVZHHNVFRYHUGHVFULSWLRQRIAcross %ROG5XOHUWR Across 7KRVHWR-RUJH0RUWZKRVDLG0\ OLIHQHHGVHGLWLQJ 0RVWSHHYHG2XWRIWKLVZRUOG"0RUDOHERRVWLQJ PLOHYHQW %XOORU&HOWLF8QLWVRIIRUFH0DUU\BBB/LWWOH 6RQGKHLPVRQJ $FWUHVV7KXUPDQ6DPHKHUH/LNHLWBBB3URPLQHQWSDUWRI 0LFNH\0RXVH +DUGO\DNQRFNRXW%RQQH[FODPDWLRQV 'RZQ 'XPEZDLWHUSDUW)LWWREHWLOOHG/HVVLQGXVWULRXV$OWHUQDWLYH1DPHWKDWV+HEUHZ IRUOLRQ .H\HPSOR\HH"/RZGRZQMRLQW"'UVPD\RUGHUWKHP0DQ\DGRFWRUV RIILFHZDLWVHHPLQJO\ ([SHUWZLWKORFNV"
