By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comTwenty-five years ago, the skeletal remains of a human were found in the woods near Pinemount Road. The body was stretched out, face down with its arms bound together. The lead investigator for the Columbia County Sheriffs Office 25 years ago was Neal Nydam. He said when skeletal remains are found, theres added difficulty in putting together what happened. Identifying the body can be challenging, and where and who the person was last with is hard to pin down. Nydam, then a captain with the sheriffs office, still remembers details of that day April 2, 1988.

SUNDAYEDITION Vol. 138, No. 364 1D 1C 1A A year after Debby people still in awe Execution Monday for man tried here Gore By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.com C anoes sliced through the water, carrying sandbags across the flooded front yards of Lake Citys southern subdivisions. Houses disappeared under the rising floods, with only angled roofs peeking out from the dark water. Over the course of days, a steady rain covered the Columbia County area as Tropical Storm Debby stalled in the Gulf of Mexico. On June 26, 2012, Debby made landfall on the Florida coast, after soaking the state for four straight days while it brewed in the Gulf. The storm deposited up to 30 inches of rain on North Florida, causing an estimated $12 million in damage in the county, accord-ing to local officials. Each storm has its own personality, said Shayne Morgan, county emergency manage-ment director. No two storms are exactly the same, and this storm was unlike any-thing I had ever seen. It just sat in the Gulf and didnt move dropping buckets and buckets and buckets of rain on us. The county was already drenched from Tropical Storm Beryl, which had moved through the area the month before. Morgan believes when Debby arrived, the already saturated ground and filling water reser-voirs couldnt handle any more rain. It was unlike anything I had ever seen, he said. Morgan was working at the emergency operations center when Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne swept through Florida in 2004, Many still grapple with idea that so much rain could fall in such a short time.FILE PHOTOSTOP: Homes in the Callaway subdivision were filled wit h several feet of water during the flooding caused by Tropial Storm Debby a year ago t his week.

DEBBY continued on 6A By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe local unemployment rate increased by 0.2 percent in May, buck-ing the trend of lowered unemployment statistics for several months, according to information released from the state Department of Economic Opportunity Friday. Seasonal employment and activities could the cause of the increase, offi-cials said. The Columbia County unemployment rate rose to 6.4 percent in May, up from 6.2 percent in April. The slight increase in unemployment at this time of year is generally attributed to seasonal events such as tourism, agricultural harvests, holi-days and the openings and closings of schools, said Florida Crown Workforce Board lead employer services represen-tative Denise Wynne. Florida Gateway College ended their spring term on May 1, and agricultural employment has been trending down throughout the state, while most elementary and secondary schools, to include Columbia Jobless rate for county inches upNo trouble seen in dispatch transitionBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comCity officials say the city is prepared to dispatch the Lake City Fire Department to emer-gency calls and should be able to provide the service within the next three months. Friday afternoon, City Manager Wendell Johnson said in combination with the upgrading of communications equipment at the combined communications center, the city has done upgrades on the citys dispatch system. We did it to make sure that, had things materialized proper-ly, that we all would have compatible equipment, he said. We have kept abreast of tech-nology and made upgrades. The city has budgeted $80,000 in the current fis-cal year to purchase updated equipment. Were installing a new system, and its a system that works just as well for fire dispatch as it does for police dis-patch, he said. Were going to put this in place immedi-ately... The $80,000 was not for the purpose of making any changes, it was just for equip-ment upgrades due to outdated equipment. Principals in the trial of Marshall Lee Gore are (from left) lead prosecutor Bob Dekle, Judge E. Vernon Douglas and lead investigator Neal Nydam.

AROUND FLORIDA Friday: 2-22-23-41 12 Friday: 1-6-13-27-32 Saturday: Afternoon: 3-0-2 Evening: N/A Saturday: Afternoon: 8-9-6-6 Evening: N/A Wednesday: 5-8-9-12-23-27 x2 Zimmerman judge: No testimony on 911 call screams SANFORD The judge in the murder trial of George Zimmerman said Saturday that prosecution audio experts who point to Trayvon Martin as scream ing on a 911 call moments before he was killed wont be allowed to testify at trial. The screams are crucial pieces of evidence because they could determine who the aggressor was in the confrontation before Zimmerman fatally shot the unarmed teenager. Martins family contends it was the teen screaming, while Zimmermans father has said it was his son. Judge Debra Nelson ruled that the methods used by the experts arent reliable. But her ruling doesnt prevent the 911 calls from being played at trial. She reached the deci sion after hearing argu ments that stretched over several days this month on whether to allow testimony from two prosecution experts. One expert ruled out Zimmerman as the screamer and another said it was Martin. Defense experts argued there was not enough audio to determine who the screams are coming from. Zimmermans attorneys also argued that the state experts analysis is flawed. Opening statements are set for Monday in the sec ond-degree murder trial for the former neighbor hood watch volunteer who says he fired on the black teenager in self-defense last year. Zimmerman is pleading not guilty. Insurer considers more rate hikes MIAMI Floridas largest property insurer, already under fire for everything from recent business deals to how much it pays its execu tives, is readying another round of rate hikes for homeowners. The board of Citizens Property Insurance Corp. meets next week in Miami to consider a range of pro posed hikes. If approved by the board and then state regulators rates will go up next January for roughly 1.26 million policy holders. State law places a 10 percent cap on how much Citizens can raise its rates on an annual basis. But that cap doesnt apply to sinkhole coverage that the insurer offers or addi tional charges used to pur chase backup coverage. The overall statewide rate hike for all customers will be between 6.9 per cent and 8.8 percent. But the bottom line for many Citizens customers will be higher. For example, tens of thousands of homeown ers in counties such as Broward, Collier, MiamiDade, Escambia and Palm Beach who use Citizens to cover only storm-related damages could face a 10.7 percent hike. That would translate to an average pre mium hike of as much as $300 or $400 a year. Unemployment rate drops again MIAMI Floridas unemployment rate ticked down another notch last month handing Gov. Rick Scott another piece of good news to boast about as he edges closer to the 2014 election. The states May unem ployment rate was 7.1 percent a drop of 0.1 percent from the previous month. But the drop is tem pered by the fact that the actual numbers of jobs in the state declined last month by 6,200. Labor officials use two different surveys to calculate the two economic measures. Additionally, state econ omists this week released their own analysis that shows a key reason for the unemployment rate decline in Florida has been people leaving the labor force or delaying looking for a job. If the same number of people were in the workforce now as were at the end of 2011, then the unemployment rate would be 8 percent. Body of missing girl found JACKSONVILLE The body of an 8-year-old girl abducted from a northeast Florida store where she had been shopping with her mother was found Saturday at a church, authorities said. An Amber Alert was issued for Charish Perriwinkle after she went missing Friday night. Sgt. Lonnie Mills of the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office said the pair was befriended by a man who offered to take Charish to buy a snack at the front of the Walmart store. The man is a registered sex offender. Sheriffs office spokesman Shannon Hartley said Saturday that the 56-year-old man had been taken into custody after officers surrounded his van. About an hour later, authorities said the girls body was found at a church. State gets $8M food stamp bonus TALLAHASSEE Florida is getting an $8 million bonus from the federal government over how the state is running its food stamp program. The Department of Children and Families announced on Friday that the federal government has awarded the state a bonus for the sixth year in a row. DCF said that Floridas error rate of 0.77 percent was the lowest in the nation. State agencies across the country are required each year to review a statistical sample of house holds and double-check if the family is eligible for assistance and whether the benefits levels are appro priate. In May, there were approximately 3.6 million people receiving food stamps in Florida. SAVANNAH, Ga. T he Food Network said Friday its dumping Paula Deen, barely an hour after the celebrity cook posted the first of two videotaped apologies online begging forgiveness from fans and critics troubled by her admission to having used racial slurs in the past. The 66-year-old Savannah kitchen celebrity has been swamped in con troversy since court documents filed this week revealed Deen told an attorney questioning her under oath last month that she has used the Nword. Yes, of course, Deen said, though she added, Its been a very long time. The Food Network, which made Deen a star with Paulas Home Cooking in 2002 and later Paulas Home Cooking in 2008, weighed in with a terse statement Friday. Food Network will not renew Paula Deens contract when it expires at the end of this month, the statement said. Network represen tatives declined further comment. A representative for Deen did not immediately return phone and email messages seeking comment on the decision. The news came as Deen worked to repair the damage to her image, which has spawned a vast empire. Deen issued direct appeal via online video one that allowed her and her staff complete control of what she said and how she said it. Inappropriate, hurtful language is totally, totally unacceptable, Deen said in the first 45-second video posted on YouTube. Ive made plenty of mistakes along the way but I beg you, my children, my team, my fans, my partners I beg for your forgiveness. North West joins odd celebrity baby names NEW YORK Was Kanye West inspired by One Direction? Kim Kardashian and Kanye West named their daughter North West, according to their Los Angeles County birth certificate. The baby was born at 5:34 a.m. Saturday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. North is certainly not the first celebrity baby with an unorthodox name and plenty of those names have set trends. Brooklyn may have seemed exotic when Victoria and David Beckham chose it in 1999, but last year it was the 29th most popu lar baby name in the U.S., according to the Social Security Administration. (Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentzs choice of another New York bor ough, Bronx, remains less popular.) North has not cracked the Social Security Administrations top 1000 baby names over the past 100 years, though West ranked 949 for boys in the year 1913. But given the popular ity of place names Paris, London, Sydney and Savannah were also in the top 100 for girls perhaps we can expect more babies with a sense of direction in years to come. Jennifer Lopez tears up over Hollywood star LOS ANGELES Jenny from the Block has a spot on the most famous block of all the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Jennifer Lopez received the 2,500th star Thursday surrounded by her boyfriend Casper Smart, her 5-year-old twins Max and Emme, and friends including Jane Fonda, Keenen Ivory Wayans and Selena director Gregory Nava. I cried like almost 15 thousand times, she said afterward. It was so crazy. But I kept promising every body I wasnt going to cry and they were like, Cry! Youre not helping!

The sheriffs posse was on horseback, searching for a missing person in a different case. Instead, they ran across a murder victim who had been dumped in the woods. A few things could be gleaned from the scene. The body was most likely that of a woman depu-ties found a hair piece and womens clothing. Medical examiners later determined the remains belonged to a white female, between 4 feet, 8 inches and 5 feet, 2 inches tall. She had brown hair and was between 18 to 20 years old. Nydam posted bulletins on police databases and the Lake City Reporter wrote a story. Sometimes, even the best investigators need a little luck. A woman, traveling through Florida, stopped in Lake City and carried a copy of the Reporters story about the investiga-tion to a beauty salon in Cleveland, Tenn., where the mother of Clevelands police chief worked. Soon, Nydam received a call from Cleveland police about a missing woman they believed to be in dan-ger. Dental records were sent. Susan Marie Roark, 19, had brown hair and green to hazel eyes. She was 4 feet, 11 inches tall and weighed 98 pounds. She was a student at Cleveland State College and didnt drink or smoke. On Saturday Jan. 30, 1988, she left her home in Birchwood, Tenn., at about 5:30 p.m. wearing faded jeans and a brown, suede coat. After that, the details are unclear. Investigators know she ended up dead in Columbia County, dumped in the woods off Pinemount Road. Investigators believe she met Marshall Lee Gore at the Rocky Top Market in Cleveland. Gore, who was convicted of the crime in a 1990 murder trial here, is scheduled to be executed at Florida State Prison at 6:30 p.m. Monday. Maybe Gore abducted her, or maybe she went with him willingly. Thats something no one knows but Gore. Roarks family said she always told them her whereabouts. She was to meet her father at church the Sunday she went miss-ing. Bob Dekle, a former Third Circuit State Attorney, prosecuted Gore. Dekle remembers Gores arrogance in the court-room. How he carried him-self as if he was smarter than the people around him. Dekle said Gore was about half as smart as he thought he was and made plenty of mistakes along the way. After he had murdered (Roark) and raped her, he took her car, a 1987 Mustang, to Tampa and pawned her jewelry, Nydam said. The jewelry was recovered by law enforcement and used as evidence in Gores trial. Roarks car was crashed in Miami, and detectives were able to recover Gores fingerprints in the vehicle. Gore raped and murdered a woman in Miami, and raped, beat and slashed the throat of another woman, but she survived. Dekle said Gore would torture his victims, bring-ing them to the point of death and then disposing of them while they were still alive. The woman who survived Gores attack testified about her encounter with him during the Columbia County trial. Prosecuting evil men demands a certain focus from prosecutors. Dekle, who also prosecuted Ted Bundy, said the demands of trying homicides are different from other cases. During his 29 years as an assistant state attorney, Dekle tried 15 cases in which the death penalty was sought. In order to do the best job possible, in prosecut-ing or defending a case, you have to divorce your-self emotionally from the pathos of what has hap-pened, he said. To a cer-tain degree it is not possi-ble, but to another degree you can do it. And you need to do it because if you are thinking with your heart and not with your head, you are not making the best decisions. Judge E. Vernon Douglas presided over Gores trial. It was his first death penalty case after he was elected to the Third Circuit bench in 1988. What he remembers most about the trial is the victims family members sitting in the courtroom. To see the concern on those parents faces and to listen to the details of another girls abuse and death, leaves a mark, he said. Douglas, who cannot be called on any future appeal as he is now a retired judge and practicing law, said he does reflect on the fact that he ordered Gore to die. The jury recommended death for Gore on an 11-1 vote. But still, the sen-tence must be ordered by a judge. The judge must agree separately and indepen-dently from the jury that the aggravating factors outweigh the mitigating factors, he said. And for a judge to have that final awesome responsibility is chilling, sobering and hum-bling. Douglas said he separates his emotions into two different views legal and moral. He has absolutely no doubt that Gore murdered Roark. He has no doubt that, legally, Gore should be executed. A crime was committed. Hes the person who committed the crime. It was done with premedita-tion and forethought, lack of remorse, disregard for human life, he said. ... Thats legally how I feel. Theres a whole nother depth of discussion to be had. Douglas said he hates to see any other human die. Theres a lifelong responsibility that accom-panies a judges decision to announce the death pen-alty, he said. The judge will live with it forever. Douglas said he sometimes has judicial flash-backs where he is remind-ed of the death penalty tri-als he judged. The weirdest events in life will refer you back to one, he said. When I go to Madison, Fla., I think about the man who killed a farmer there.... I handled that case, and I ordered that person to death. He says with every flashback, he feels a moment of loss for the families involved. You share the loss of the human condition when wrongs are inflicted on people, and you see it from the inside out, Douglas said. ... Then you have the weight and the responsibil-ity that you have autho-rized the execution of a human being. Period. Does it weigh? Of course. Nydam and Dekle both said Gores execution will bring some closure to them, but murder victims families do not ever receive closure. Dekle said hes going to attend Gores execution because he thinks its the honorable thing to do. I have witnessed the execution of two of the peo-ple I prosecuted, I had two die (in prison), and I have three left on death row right now, he said. My philosophy is that if I am going to ask a jury to rec-ommend the death penalty and Im going to ask a judge to impose the death penalty, then I ought to see the job through to the end. Nydam said he still talks with Roarks father, and wants to be there for him. The two still talk on the phone, and through the years, Nydam would keep Roark updated on the prog-ress of Gores appeals. Both Nydam and Dekle said the energy and emo-tion that go into murder and violent crime investigations and prosecutions played a contributing factor in their decisions to retire early. I got to the point where it wasnt something I want-ed to deal with anymore, Dekle said. These cases consume your life, Nydam said. ... Once you get assigned this case, either as a prosecutor or the lead investigator, ... youre gone all the time, youre traveling, youre following leads, and your mind is trying to solve the case. Dekle said people ask him if he misses prosecut-ing murders. Nope, he said.On Monday, the state will execute Marshal Lee Gore by lethal injection. Nydam and Dekle will be witnesses to the execution.

Daina Greene, MD Marlene Summers, CNM 934 NE Lake DeSoto Circle, Lake City, FL(Next to Courthouse) By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.com The Columbia County housing market contin-ues to improve, showing increases in new pending sales, median sale price and new listings compared to May 2012, according to data released by the Florida Realtors Association Wednesday. I see a slow, but steady, improvement, said Dan Gherna, executive vice president of the Lake City Board of Realtors. However, the number of closed sales dropped by 5.4 percent, with only 35 closed sales occurring in May, compared to 37 in May 2012. Gherna said the small drop isnt significant in a market the size of Columbia County. Other market indicators show a better indication of how the local housing economy is doing, he said. Pending sales are up 38.9 percent from May of last year, increasing from 36 pending sales in May 2012 to 50 in May this year. New listings, a lagging indicator of market health, were up 4.7 percent from May 2012. There were 67 new listings in May 2013, com-pared to 64 a year earlier and 86 new listings in April this year. While new listings increased, inventory declined by 14 percent in May 2013 compared to May 2012. The months supply of inventory saw a 17.9 percent decline in May 2013 from last May. The original list price to sale price is up to 90 per-cent, Gherna said. Thats something we havent seen in a while. It says a couple things: People are getting more realistic about their pric-es and people are willing to pay a little more, he added. In a recovering market, buyers realize the market may be moving away from them and they need to match the selling price in order to get a contract on the house. According to the report released by Florida Realtors Association, that is usually the last measure to indicate a market that has shifted up. Median sale price shifted up as well by 3.9 percent from $103,950 in May 2012 to $108,000. Homes also spent less time on the market com-pared to May 2012. For May 2013, homes averaged 112 days on the market before being sold. EXECUTION: Murderer convicted here to die Monday in state pris on Continued From Page 1A JOBS: County unemployment rises a little Continued From Page 1ACounty schools, were still in session through the month of May. Floridas unemployment rate for May was 7.1 percent, the lowest it has been since September 2008. The national unemployment rate for May was 7.6 percent. Wynne said she was uncertain how long the increase in the local jobless rate would continue. Staff and faculty at Florida Gateway College return in mid-August, which should even out our numbers some-what, she said. The effects that the aforementioned events have on labor statistics can be eliminated through the statistical technique of seasonal adjustment, which smoothes the sea-sonal impacts and makes it easier to observe the underlying trends. For example, in May, all 67 counties in the state of Florida had declines in their unemployment rates over the year, though only three counties had declines for the month of May, she said. The Columbia County labor force consists of 31,088 people, and in May 29,085 were employed. The report indicates 2,003 people were unem-ployed, making for the 6.4 percent unemployment rate. In April the local labor force consisted of 30,788 people, and 28,875 were employed. The unemployment rate was 6.2 percent, with 1,913 peo-ple jobless. In May 2012, Columbia Countys unemployment rate was 8 percent, with 31,441 in the labor force and 28,933 having jobs. An estimated 2,508 residents were jobless. Locally, we have employers in corrections, medical, engineering, logis-tics and skilled/specialized mechani-cal fields with multiple positions that they are looking to fill, Wynne said. These job descriptions and how to apply can be found on www.employ-florida.com or at your local Florida Crown Workforce Board One Stop. Wynne also noted that there are particular trends in our area that are different from the state. We are not seeing a decline in tourism in our region as much as the southern portion of the state is at this time, she said. This is due to our beautiful springs and more temperate climate. DISPATCH: No trouble Continued From Page 1AThe city plans to hire two additional dispatchers to handle fire calls. The dispatchers we have on board now are experienced because they were here when we were dispatching fire before, Johnson said. The tran-sition for us to have the manpower, personnel resources and communi-cation resources is not an issue. New consoles will be needed for the extra dis-patchers to work from, and the city has a consul-tant who will assist with the project, while its infor-mation technology depart-ment formulates the tech-nical needs. Well be able to do that without any interruption in the service, Johnson said. Going from dispatching the fire department from the county to the city is not going to interrupt ser-vice to the city and its not going to do anything to jeopardize the safety of our citizens. My plan is to be ready by mid-August. Certainly, since weve got until October, well be prepared and ready to go into operation well before then. Johnson did not have a dollar amount as to how much the city contributed to the combined commu-nications center. He said, based on his knowledge of the budget, its not been a significant amount of expended funds during the last four years of plan-ning for this. He said the county will have to make some adjust-ments to its computer-aided dispatch system, and it could take a few weeks, months or up until Oct. 1 to have the system they want without Lake City Fire Department dispatch. Well be able to do the same thing with our sys-tem. So, were just going to go back to dispatching as we once did, he said. If we had to do it, we could probably do it now. Would it be as reliable as we want it to be today? No, because we have to make some adjustments with the CAD equipment, the mapping and address-ing and issues associated with automatic aid thats in place now. Its not going to be problematic. On Thursday, the Board of County Commissioners unanimously approved the city fire departments with-drawal from the combined communications center, effective Oct. 1. Johnson said the city decided to withdraw from the service because the concerns they had with the combined communica-tions center were not ade-quately addressed. County officials say the move is politically motivated, which Johnson denies.Local housing market improving slowly
T he Great CHS Book Drop was a brief part of Columbia High School lore back in the early 1940s. It involved only one classroom but as the predict-able exaggerations made their rounds you would have thought it was a big, school-wide event. To understand the event at all, you must understand the deep-seat-ed community religious convictions of that time. Lake City and Columbia County of the 1940s were considered very religious places. Religious beliefs were very strict. The Bible says it, I believe it, and that ends it. It was the Apostles Creed take to its strictest meaning. If Florida was in the Bible Belt, our area was the buckle of that belt. Social dancing (belly rubbing) was a sin; likewise, going to the movies. Some young people went through their teen years and never went to a dance or saw a picture show. On Sundays, families were usually present at both Sunday School and Church, morning and evening services, and at Wednesday night prayer meeting. Kids attendance was not optional and parents saw to that. Nearby highway signs warned Prepare to meet thy God, Jesus Saves, or Heaven or Hell, the only choices. Hell meant spending eternity in hell fire and brimstone, burning in agonizing torment forever, always stated as forever and forever as if one forever didnt adequately cover it. Being saved was the number one priority in most everyones life. After all, Christ might return at any second, in the twinkling of an eye, and your eternal fate was sealed. From time to time, some religious leader would predict that Christ would return on a specified day and time. Many took these predictions seriously, despite the Scripture that says no man knows the day or the hour. Religious revivals were held frequently, often in tents, and hell fire and brimstone were regular sermon topics. Extended altar calls prolonged the services and many walked the sawdust trail to salva-tion. It was in this setting that a national religious figure said on the radio that a divine revelation had been made to him that Christ would return on a specific Friday at exactly 1 p.m. Some students and teachers at CHS took this prediction seriously and when the appointed day came they kept a wary eye on the class-room clock. One teacher tried to keep her lesson going as nervous kids watched the second hand on the clock moved ever closer to the doomsday time. Finally, just as the second hand marked exactly 1 p.m., there was a thunderingly loud crash and half the kids jumped out of their seats and up came the teacher. What in the world had happened? It turned out that three of the most rambunctious kids in the classroom had secretly brought several of the heaviest books they could find to class and when the clock reached 1 p.m., they all slammed the heavy books crashing to the floor, scaring the bejabbers out of the kids and the teacher. When the dust settled, the offending kids were sent to the principals office and assigned a week in detention hall. To some at school, the offending kids were considered sacrilegious brats while a few thought them heroically hilarious. Nothing else of world-shaking consequence happened anywhere in the world that day.LAST COLUMNToday is my last column. Thanks to those of you who have been regular or occasional readers. Also, thanks to all at the Lake City Reporter for their great co-opera-tion. Ill see you around town. A lice Walker, author of The Color Purple, has generated headlines by urging singer Alicia Keys to avoid soul danger and cancel her July 4 concert in Tel Aviv. Keys and other celebri-ties should ignore Walker and visit Israel. They may be amazed at what they discover. I saw Israel for the first time last week, thanks to the America-Israel Friendship League, as did several other journalists on our fact-finding trip. Keys ... likely would find Israel as surprising as we did. Israels omnipresence in the media makes it sound like a super-power. But Israel is impressively compact. At just 7,992 square miles, it is slightly larger than Clark County, Nevada (greater Las Vegas) but tinier than New Hampshire. Israel is not just small. Its svelte. At its thinnest point, near Netanya -just north of Tel Aviv -Israel spans just nine miles. The land separating Israels Mediterranean beaches from its border with the Palestinian Authority covers roughly the same distance as does Manhattan between Battery Park and the Apollo Theater on 125th Street, or Los Angeles from the Santa Monica Pier to the La Brea Tar Pits. Conquer those nine miles, and you chop Israel in two. Given this existential danger, the late foreign minister Abba Eban called this and the rest of Israels narrow waistline its Auschwitz boundaries. Nevertheless, Israel is the little country that could. Within a desert that is hostile in every sense, Israel has become a prosperous nation with a per-capita income of $29,512, its Central Bureau of Statistics reports. In 2012, Israels GDP expanded by 2.7 percent, while Americas grew just 2.2. Israels unemployment rate is 6.9 percent, vs. 7.6 in the U.S. This start-up nation has pioneered plenty, including drip irrigation, the flash drive, and the PillCam, which lets doctors remotely examine a patients diges-tive track after he has swallowed a pill-sized camera. Alicia Keys might be startled to see the degree to which Israeli Arabs are integrated in this society. Israels official languages are Hebrew and Arabic, both of which appear, along with English (unofficial but convenient), on street signs everywhere. Fourteen Arabs serve in the Knesset, Israels parliament. They compose about 12 percent of the 120-member parliament or about half of their approximately 25 per-cent of the general population. Its a safe bet that far fewer Jews serve in other Middle East legislatures. A drive through largely Arabic East Jerusalem reveals a dustier, poorer part of town than Europe-like, mainly Jewish West Jerusalem. Boosting the wealth and influence of its Arabs should be Israels urgent priority. But that vital objec-tive will be far easier to achieve with Israelis manning their work stations rather than their ramparts. Musicians like Keys also should appreciate Israels broad, American-style freedom of expression, some-thing rare among its neighbors. Gaza, for example, has prohibited its journalists from cooperating with their Israeli counterparts. Gazan musicians need permits to play, and the Hamas government grants them grudgingly, at best. Alicia Keys could learn this and lots more in Israel. So could Alice Walker.

BY EMAIL: email@example.com Q Pensacola News JournalCancel IRS bonuses Celebrities: Dont boycott IsraelThe great CHS book drop We call on ... U.S. Sens. Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio to find a way to cancel the proposed $70 million in bonuses planned for union employees of the Internal Revenue Service. The bonuses are questionable at best, considering the scandal over employees looking into the tax-exempt status of many conservative groups, especially those aligned with the tea party movement. It smacks of using an arm of the government to intimidate critics. Its not who we are nor is it the government we want. Right now, IRS employees are the last ones who deserve a reward. Also, with some federal workers being furloughed because of the sequester cuts, its sheer madness to reward some federal employ-ees while taking about three weeks worth of pay from others. The message that sends to other federal employees is that their work is not as important. Wed like to see an accounting of just what the IRS employees did to merit raises. It shows the widening disconnect between those in government and those of us who foot the bill for that government. Besides, the country is drowning in debt with no end in sight. Its outrageous and fis-cally irresponsible to think there is money to reward some employees. At midday Thursday, the national debt clock which can be found at usdebtclock.org showed we are $16.8 tril-lion in debt. That breaks down to more than $148,000 per taxpayer, many of whom work harder but will not receive a bonus, let alone a raise this year. Can we have a show of hands of anyone who supports federal bonuses as we sink deeper into the pool of red ink? IRS employees are not allowed to vote. We agree with U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, who told The Associated Press the bonus-es should be canceled. Employees could get up to $3,500 each. The IRS always claims to be short on resources, Grassley told the AP. But it appears to have $70 million for union bonuses. If its determined that the bonuses must be doled out, its a clarion call that Congress must look at union contracts and renegotiate them immediately. Federal workers have to under-stand that without truly meaningful cuts, the spending will continue and they too will have to sacrifice. Early next month, when the Blue Angels wont be flying over Pensacola Beach, bringing tens of thousands who provide an economic boost to the area, remember there is an IRS employee figuring out how to spend a bonus.

bringing rain and wind. But unlike those storms, Debby flooded the area in basi-cally two days and became what Suwannee River Water Management District deemed a 500-year event. Debbys deluge made June 2012 the wettest June since 1932, said SRWMD. By July, nearly a week after Debby dispersed, an estimated 400 homes were found to have damage due to severe flood-ing and many people were still trapped by flood waters. By June 28, officials had rescued 53 peo-ple stranded in cars and homes across the county. Elaine Merricks, who lives outside the city, had three feet of water in her living room. My property is on high ground, she said. But the way my patio is built, water burst through my patio, seeped through the walls and flooded my living room. One night during the storm, Merricks dozed off on her sofa. When she woke up, the floor was wet. Even with the con-tinuous rain, she suspected the water must have been coming from her air conditioning. And then, she had two feet of water in her home. I couldnt do anything but try and stop that water, Merricks said. The way my house is made, it collects the water. Because of the chaos surrounding the storm, recovery teams couldnt get to her house to drain the water before Merricks left for her daughters wedding in Atlanta. By the time she returned, the house had mil-dew. She had to rip up the carpet and padding. It was really devastating, Merricks said. But when I see what other people went through some people lost their homes, some lost their cars I feel blessed. To place sandbags to try to stop the flooding, she had to wade across her patio. The water, she estimates, was five feet deep. Rain was consistently coming, she said. Even getting the sandbags, it was raining. Ill never forget that. But now, Merricks said, she has flood insurance. Even if there werent storms com-ing this way, she decided after Debby she would prepare in case another flood comes. A year has gone by, and shes just now getting to the end of a floor replacement project. I cant believe the whole year I havent had any flooring, she said. But if you think about it, there are still people out there who dont have anywhere to go because of that storm. On Tuesday, July 3, 2012, President Barack Obama declared Columbia County a major disaster area. By Monday, July 9, the Federal Emergency Management Agency had opened a recovery office in Columbia County. A handful of locals already were waiting in line. According to the FEMA Recovery Program summary, there were 1,789 registrations filed by Columbia County resi-dents, compared to 510 regis-trations from both 2004 hurri-canes. FEMA paid $3,621,773 to Columbia County in household assistance. Hilliary Arnold, of Lake City, was in the process of remodeling her home when the storm hit. FEMA denied assistance to her because she had not been living in the house, but the rainwaters damaged much of the floor in her home. United Way of Suwannee Valley reached out to her and basically rebuilt her house. Its been a blessing, she said. When all that rain started hitting, it was standing in our yard. Its the feeling of hopeless-ness. You just cant do anything about it. Like Merricks, Arnold now has flood insurance. Weve been through storms, but nothing that bad, she said. It was only rain continuous rain. The county is still in the process of filing for reimbursements for road repairs, an ongoing process since Debby ended. Because of the storm, the county emergency operations center plans to change the way it handles damage reports. In the future, the county will be imple-menting computer-based dam-age assessment software. They will also require a master list of all flooded roads to be updated in real time for EOC personnel during disasters. Lake City officials have redone some drainage systems to prepare for any future bad weather. You can fix some place, and the next time the storm hits, it floods somewhere else, said Gene Bullard, city human resources and risk manage-ment director. But I think were ready. While Columbia County knew Debby was on its way, no one could have predicted the amount of rain the storm was going to bring, said County Commissioner Ron Williams. Williams experience started at 1 a.m. during the early stages of the flood. One of his con-stituents called him to say her house was flooded. By the time Williams reached her house, crossing over flooded roads and eventually wading thigh-deep to her front door, he said he told her she had to leave her home because it wasnt an average storm. In fact, as he flew over his flooded district in a helicopter after the storm passed, Williams said, the sight reminded him of watching the History Channel and seeing the images of Africa during monsoon season. I have never seen anything like that, he said. There was no place for the water to go, except over the land. ... But it was one of those incidents where neighbors helped neighbors. It brought out the good side of folks. 6A 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, JUNE 23, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 DEBBY: People still in disbelief that so much rain fell in so little time Continued From Page 1A ED SEIFERT/ Columbia County Sheriffs OfficeNear tragedy was averted when these men rescued a y oung girl who was swept away by raging floodwaters brought by Tropical Storm Debby on June 26, 2012.

From staff reportsParticipants in the 2013 Florida/Georgia Tobacco Tour from throughout the Southeast were recently welcomed to the Roosevelt and Travis Dicks farm in Lake City. The tour was led by Dr. Jay Michael Moore, Cooperative Extension agronomist from University of Georgia. After stops in Georgia, the group looked at crops and research plots in Hamilton, Suwannee, and Columbia counties. UF/IFAS Columbia County agronomy exten-sion agent Mace Bauer welcomed the group to Columbia County. Travis Dicks is the last remain-ing tobacco grower in Columbia, a county with a rich history in the tobacco industry. Changes in the industry, and production challeng-es have resulted in only a handful of farmers left in North Florida growing tobacco commercially. An important reason for the tour stop was to see the test plots where 13 variet-ies were being grown in a production setting. Moore said, Roosevelt and Travis always do an excellent job not only grow-ing tobacco but they take care to handle the variety trial carefully, gathering accurate yield and quality information that is used throughout the industry. Bauer goes to the farm frequently to look around and add an extra set of eyes to look for problems. Travis is very appreciative when I come out and look around, searching for potential problems such as insects or disease, Bauer said. The crop looks very good at this time, as it did last year during the tour. However, it looked great last year until Tropical Storm Debby came through in late June, virtu-ally destroying the crop. Dicks said, The crop looks very good at this time. Except for the freeze on March 27-28, we have had a good season. It was dry when we needed to be in the field working, and wet when we needed the rain. Last year we had an excel-lent crop until we lost it in the storm. You just never know what you have until you get it in the barn.7A Attention: Open to the Public Special Meeting on (Minimum Flows and Levels) presented by Our Santa Fe River Inc.

From staff reportsNineteen Suwannee River Basin agriculturists will be recognized for their excep-tional natural resource stewardship with a County Alliance for Responsible Environmental Stewardship (CARES) award during a dinner on Thursday. The event will be held at the UF/IFAS North Florida Research and Education Center-Suwannee Valley in Live Oak, beginning at 6 p.m. More than 800 guests are expected to attend to honor their peers. The 13th annual CARES event will honor farmers and ranchers from seven area counties who have implemented best man-agement practices to conserve and protect natural resources on their proper-ties. Carl Allison of Allison Farms is this years Columbia County honoree. Farm owners who have met verifiable standards of excellence in resource man-agement receive a CARES designation and an identify-ing CARES sign to post on their property recognizing them for their commitment in taking the lead as envi-ronmental stewards. We are proud of our farmers and ranchers, said John Hoblick, president of the Florida Farm Bureau. This award demonstrates their passion to produce safe, abundant food while being excellent stewards of our land and water.Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterTOP: Ashley Cox, 8, won the age 7-9 age group in the Lake City Reporters Draw Your Dad Contest.

when were on this plat-form, Spiller said. Giving back is something very dear to me and my family. Its something that I was able to learn early on. Spillers connection with former Florida Gator Warren goes back to their days with Union County. I was his water boy in high school and then he kind of followed me, Spiller said. He helped out when I was making my college choices and gave me a lot of inside informa-tion. He did the same thing when I came out of college and taught me some of the things to expect. We want a few more (NFL players), but with this being the first year, there were some teammates that had other things going on, Spiller said. We want more as it continues to grow. Spiller said hes familiar with The Country Club at Lake City as well as Columbia County and thats part of the reason he chose to have the tournament here. Its a good golf course that I have played once, Spiller said. In Lake Butler, we dont have a golf course. This offered an easy commute. Spiller said he just wrapped up another char-ity camp at Clemson before heading home to Lake Butler and should be in the area for the next couple of weeks. Right now, Im just trying to relax and spend some time with family and friends that I dont get to see as much during the regular season, Spiller said. Besides that Im just working out and get-ting ready for the regular season. FISHING Fernandina Beach Fishing Rodeo The 2013 Fernandina Beach Fishing Rodeo is Aug. 3 at the Fernandina Harbor Marina.

White and Gaskins were sponsored by Waynes Marine, and Gaskins said he was proud of the fourth-place finish. It was great to come in fourth place at the VIP tournament. We had a blast out there, Gaskins said. We had a lot of competi-tion, but we had to step up to the plate and perform. Gaskins said the fourthplace finish in the VIP is the best finish he and White have had in the VIP derby and hes fished it twice with White. Gaskins said he considers coming in fourth place out of a field of 90 angling teams an honor. It was great to come in that high in the field. I had a blast and it was wonder-ful, he said. White also said he was proud to finish so high in such a competitive field of anglers. I feel real grateful for the fourth-place finish because we fished hard and it took us a while to catch fish to win in the VIP, said White, who lives in the Deep Creek commu-nity. Ive been fishing the Wolfson VIP tournament since 1996 and under the Waynes Marine sponsor-ship for about three years. It feels wonderful to finish fourth after all those years of competing.

ASSOCIATED PRESSLebron James of the champion Miami Heat was named MVP of the NBA Finals. Heat making historyBy TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressMIAMI Dwyane Wade was walking down the hall-way toward the Miami Heat locker room in the wee hours of Friday morning, still in uniform and fuss-ing with the new champion-ship hat atop his head as his team and their families were in the midst of party-ing the night away. He stopped briefly and assessed the celebration. Were getting pretty good at these, Wade said. Thats understandable, the Heat are getting plen-ty of practice at throwing themselves end-of-season parties. Four trips to the NBA Finals since 2006, three championships in that span and with the last two titles coming consecutively, its making the decisions that the Heat and LeBron James made three summers ago look pretty smart. The Heat became the sixth franchise in league history to win consecutive championships. Its their third title overall; only four clubs have more. And for James, it capped two sea-sons where he won all he could two regular-season MVPs, two titles, two Finals MVPs, even an Olympic gold medal. It feels great. This team is amazing. And the vision that I had when I decided to come here is all coming true, James said. Through adversity, through every-thing weve been through, weve been able to perse-vere and to win back to back championships. Its an unbelievable feeling. Im happy to be part of such a first-class organization. James said winning his first title was the toughest thing hes ever done. Its now the secondtoughest. Defending the crown, he said, was even more arduous. He was exhausted when it was over and still scored 37 points in the finale, more than he posted in any other postsea-son game this season. The Spurs were 21 seconds away from ending the series in six games before James and the Heat engi-neered a huge rally. Without that comeback, a championship-or-bust sea-son would have gone bust. Instead, legacies were enhanced. If James keeps getting better, Miamis place in his-tory will probably only rise. At 6-foot-8 and 250 pounds, James has a com-bination of size, speed and strength that seems unmatched in the NBA world. After Miami lost the 2011 finals to Dallas, James decided to improve his post play by working with Hakeem Olajuwon. Last season, his focus was on enhancing his mid-range jumper, something he con-tinued working on through-out the season with Ray Allen. So with about a half-minute left and the Heat up by two points, it was that mid-range jumper that sealed Miamis title. I want to be, if not the greatest, one of the great-est to ever play this game, James said. And I will con-tinue to work for that, and continue to put on this uni-form and be the best I can be every night. James has already put himself in that best-ever conversation. James has played 10 seasons now. Including play-offs, his scoring average is 27.6, third-best in league history behind only Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain. Since the league began charting plus-minus (the point dif-ferential when a player is on the court), James teams have outscored opponents by 3,861 points with him in regular-season and playoff games. Second-best on that list? Wade, at 2,301 points. That gap is simply huge. With an average season next year, hell move into the Top 25 in all-time regular-season scoring. He got more rebounds per game this season than ever before, shot the 3-pointer better than ever, making five in Game 7 of the finals.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comB elk is celebrat-ing its 125th anniversary with numerous sales events and activities planned through-out the year, but locally the store and its employees take just the same amount of pride in being a valued community partner. William Batte, Belk store manager at the Lake City Mall, 2533 West U.S. Highway 90, said its an honor for Belk to celebrate 125 years. Its not often that you have a company that has been around for 125 years with the reputation that Belk has, he said. Celebrating the 125th anniversary means it goes a long way to tell what kind of leader Belk is in the retail industry and a leader in the community. He said Belk has been in the Lake City Mall since the mall opened in 2001, and there was a Belk loca-tion downtown for several years before the mall was built. Belk has been a part of this community and this legacy of Lake City for a while, he said. Weve got customers who have been cardholders for more than 20 years and loyal to Belk as a brand. Its a great feel-ing to work for a company whose got such a rich heritage and community involvement as we do. Several residents have participated in local Belk 125th anniversary celebra-tion sales and events. Its been fantastic, Batte said. Weve had a huge amount of customer interest in a lot of the events. The promotions have included special anniversa-ry items, exclusive to Belk for its 125th anniversary celebration from vendors such as Nautica, Columbia, Estee Lauder and Clinique. They created products specific to our 125th anni-versary this year, Batte said. That was a great tell on how they feel about the partnership Belk has had with them over the course of years. Batte said there have been lots of events taking place and others are sched-uled. At noon, July 8, employees and representatives from Belk will take part in a community service proj-ect at Niblack Elementary School. Well be doing some artwork for some of the classrooms and putting together some picnic areas for staff and the school, he said. In 2012, Batte was awarded the store man-ager of the year for Belks Southern Division, which covers Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. The award is based on sales performance, credits, service and the general manager of the store, he said. Its a pleasure to be here and we really appreciate all the support the Lake City community has given to Belk over the course of us being here and locally over the past several years. Ive been with the store for a little over five years and made some great friends and community partners that were thankful to have.

By BARBARA ORTUTAYAP Technology WriterNEW YORK Facebook is adding video to its popu-lar photo-sharing app Instagram, following in the heels of Twitters growing video-sharing app, Vine. Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom said Thursday that users will be able to record and share 15-second clips by tapping a video icon in the app. They can also apply filters to videos to add contrast, make them black and white or different hues. This is the same Instagram we all know and love but it moves, he said at an event held at Facebooks Menlo Park, Calif., headquarters. Vine, which launched in January, has 13 million users and lets people create and share 6-second video clips. Instagram has more than 130 million users, up from about 22 million when Facebook bought the com-pany more than a year ago. If users like it, Facebooks move could propel mobile video sharing into the main-stream. Systrom said To use the video feature, Instagram users whove downloaded the latest ver-sion can tap on the same camera icon they use to snap photos. A new video camera icon will appear on the right side. Tap it and a screen with a red video but-ton will let you record clips of sunsets, kids running in parks or co-workers staring at their computer screens. The app will record as long as your finger is on the red button or for 15 seconds, whichever comes first. Not unlike Vine, taking your finger off the button will stop the recording, allowing you to shoot the scene from a different angle or record something else alto-gether. Once you have 15 seconds of footage, you can play it from the beginning and post it on Instagram to share with others. A feature called cinema adds stabilization to the videos so they dont look like shaky amateur shots. Systrom called it com-pletely mind-blowing. Right now, only owners of the iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 can shoot video using this feature. Given Vines popularity, it is perhaps more sur-prising that Facebook has not introduced video for Instagram sooner. There is no doubt Twitter will move quickly to up the ante on Vine and this could under-cut Facebooks efforts with video on Instagram, said Eden Zoller, principal consumer analyst at Ovum, a technology research firm, in an email. Forrester Research analyst Nate Elliott thinks tak-ing features from smaller rivals and offering them to a much larger set of users has worked well for Facebook so far. It also keeps Facebooks services fresh, and is one of the reasons more than a billion people still use the site every month, he wrote in an email. When Facebook Inc. agreed to buy Instagram in April 2012, it offered $1 billion in cash and stock. But the value of the deal fell to $715 million by the time the deal closed last August. Instagram was the first and only company Facebook has bought and kept running as a sepa-rate application. Until its Instagram purchase, Facebook was known for smaller acqui-hires, a type of popular Silicon Valley deal in which a com-pany purchases a startup as a way to hire its talented workers and then shuts the acquired company down. Facebook still hasnt said how it will be able to make money from Instagram, as it has not introduced ads on the service. But online video ads are growing, and its likely only a matter of time before they arrive on Facebook and at some point, Instagram. Research firm eMarketer estimates that the U.S. digital video advertising market will grow 41 percent this year, to $4.1 billion from 2.9 billion in 2012. The mobile video ad market is much smaller, though eMarketer expects it to more than double this year to $518 million. 2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 23, 2013 2CBIZ/MOTLEY Facebook introduces video capability on Instagram app ASSOCIATED PRESSInstagram founder Kevin Systrom talks about an added vide o feature to the Instagram program at Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif., on Thu rsday. By MARY CLARE JALONICKAssociated PressWASHINGTON The Houses broad rejection of a massive farm bill could signal a shift in the way Congress views agricul-ture policy. Farm issues once had enormous clout on Capitol Hill, but the healthy agri-culture economy and an increased interest in cut-ting spending have worked against farm-state lawmak-ers who are now trying to push a farm bill through for a third year in a row. The five-year, half-trillion dollar measure would have expanded some sub-sidies while saving about $4 billion annually overall, including a 3 percent cut in the almost $80 billion-a-year food stamp program. The vote Thursday was 234-195 against the bill, with 62 Republicans vot-ing no, arguing it was too expensive. House Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas, R-Okla., said after the vote that the committee is assessing its options. But just before the vote, he signaled that he was not optimistic he would be able to get another bill to the floor. I cant guarantee youll see in this Congress anoth-er attempt, he said. Lucas and other rural lawmakers argue that a farm bill is needed to avert crises stemming from bad weather or price collaps-es. They could push for an extension of the 2008 farm bill, which expires in September, or negoti-ate a new bill with the Senate and try again. Some conservatives have suggested separating the farm programs from the food stamps into separate bills. Lawmakers on the agriculture committees have for decades added food stamps to farm bills to gar-ner urban votes. But that marriage has made pas-sage harder this year. The Senate overwhelmingly passed its version of the farm bill last week, with about $2.4 billion a year in overall cuts and a $400 million annual decrease in food stamps one-fifth of the House bills food stamp cuts. The White House was supportive of the Senate version but had issued a veto threat of the House bill. In addition to conservative opposition, the bill also suffered from lack of Democratic support necessary for traditional bipartisan passage. Only 24 Democrats voted in favor of the legislation after many said the food stamp cuts could remove as many as 2 million needy recipients from the rolls. The addition of the option-al state work requirements by Republican amendment just before final passage turned away many remain-ing Democratic votes. Minnesota Rep. Collin Peterson, the senior Democrat on the House Agriculture Committee, said he believes the work requirements and a vote that scuttled a proposed dairy overhaul turned too many lawmakers against the measure. I had a bunch of people come up to me and say I was with you but this is it, Im done, Peterson said. Farm bill defeatsignals change in agriculture policy
By LORI HINNANT and SARAH DiLORENZOAssociated PressLE BOURGET, France When the Concorde started flying in the 1970s, hopes were high that the traveling masses would soon streak through the air faster than the speed of sound or soar in planes that hurtled like missiles above the earths atmosphere. Instead, jetliners still look the same as they did five decades ago and travel times have barely budged. To consumers who have watched the worlds technologi-cal imagination shift to Silicon Valley, the airline industry seems plodding. Computers and cell-phones are obsolete almost as soon as theyre unwrapped. The aviation industry looks stuck in time by comparison. Twenty years ago, 10 years ago even, a lot of technology and innovation came from the aerospace industry, said Larbi Ouchelouche, who is the project manager at Speel Praha, a Czech company that makes black boxes and other flight monitoring sys-tems. But today, the commercial is going so fast. Restricted by huge costs, rising fuel prices and safety con-cerns, the aviation industry is unable to make the same leaps and bounds. It has instead turned its eye to less obvious advances, ones that companies say have allowed more people to fly than ever before. But even some industry insiders revealed a touch of disap-pointment at the Paris Air Show this week. Look at all the aircraft ... theyre exactly the same (as they used to be), theyre just using different material, said Gerrard McCluskey, the vice president of engineering at AERO Vodochody, a Czech aerospace manufacturer. One of the most talked about innovations at the show in Le Bourget this week was the use of composite materials including carbon fibers and plastics; Airbus newest jet, the A350, relies heav-ily on composites. But to the naked eye, it looks just like all the other Airbuses on display. Many plane manufacturers let the military lead the way because the armed forces have the money to play with new technologies, test them extensively and then figure out how to build them efficiently. We let the military test it, prove it, McCluskey said. I think what we have to under-stand is that aircraft are vehicles, they have to be safe and have to follow certifications. But he predicted that within the next 10 years, planes wont con-tain a fuselage where the cabin and cockpit are now. Theyll just be one flying wing. Like a fighter jet. Or the gone, but-not-forgotten Concorde, which cut the flight time from London to New York to 3 hours and 20 minutes from nearly eight hours. So what happened to the Concorde? The same thing that happened to the industry at large: the economy. The Concorde was heavily subsidized by the French and British governments and as the industry declined in the late 1990s and early 2000s, it became clear it was no longer viable. While the experience of air travel has changed little, its global popularity has grown almost exponentially in the past two decades. In its 20-year out-look, Boeing Co. predicted the commercial aircraft fleet would double by 2034, with most of the new passengers in Asia and Latin America, where standards of living are rising quickly. But increased demand and the rising price of fuel have forced manufac-turers to focus all their innovation know-how on fuel economy. In the last 10 years, the price of a barrel of oil has gone up, say from 25 bucks to over 100, said Jim Stoker, president of GE Aviation Czech. If you go look at your airline ticket, well, its higher than it was 10 years ago, its still not four (times) higher. That leads to the composites and lightweight metals that were the stars of the Paris Air Show. Both shave weight off planes, making them more efficient to fly. Composites also endure dam-age better, extending an aircrafts life. Fifteen years ago nobody could afford to fly constantly. Today people can fly, said Ingrid Joerg, a senior vice president for Cleveland-based Aleris, which rolls out aluminum skins for major aircraft manufacturers. The global mobility that has hap-pened to a large extent has been because prices have dropped for passengers. The company recently opened a plant in China to serve the grow-ing Asian market and is constant-ly adjusting its alloys for lighter weight, but few passengers or even pilots are going to pick up on the subtleties between one aluminum hull and another. A few more might notice the potential in a new way for air-planes to taxi to and from their gate, developed by engineering conglomerate Honeywell and aerospace and defense company Safran. Currently, jet engines are used making taxiing noisy and fuel-guzzling, and preventing air-planes from backing up. Thats why they are often towed. The Electric Green Taxiing System instead uses the planes auxiliary engine, which provides a plane with electricity while the main engines are off, to power the wheels. Taxiing is quieter and more fuel efficient and makes the plane much more maneuver-able. For passengers, it means no more waiting for a tow. Some of the technologies developed to put fighter jets at the vanguard are now coming to private jets and may eventually make their way onto commercial flights. Flying in a Gulfstream is about as far from the commercial travel experience as possible. Windows are bigger. Beds, couch and wire-less network come standard, as does the ability to use a single mobile app to control the lights, shades, temperature and televi-sions. The latest model from the Savannah, Ga., company flies at Mach .9 just shy of the speed of sound and is the fastest civilian plane approved for travel, according to Steve Cass, the com-panys vice president for commu-nications. The new plane shaved about an hour off the trans-Atlantic flight to Paris from the compa-nys headquarters compared to a commercial jetliner. Their business model is a lot different, Cass said of com-mercial travel. The commercial airline business is to transport people from Point A to Point B at the lowest cost. Cabin pressure inside most commercial jets is the equiva-lent of standing at the top of an 8,000-foot mountain hearts work harder, breathing speeds up. Its the equivalent of a low-level workout for the duration of the flight. Private aircraft like the Gulfstream cabin have been tak-ing altitude artificially lower for around 15 years cutting back on fatigue, lessening the effects of jet lag. The most recent Boeing and Airbus models have adopted the technology a sub-tle change but one that travelers crossing an ocean might notice after a few hours in the air. You dont get the puffy hands, the puffy feet, Cass said. Other tangible changes may eventually come from compos-ite materials, said McCluskey of the Czech manufacturer, even though most planes are made of aluminum and will continue to be for years to come. Composites allow for longer panels rather than the small ones, riveted together that are seen are many aluminum planes and that means fewer piec-es that need to be connected. Planes made from composites should also be able to stay in service longer because the new materials withstand damage bet-ter. Fewer pieces and longer in-service times mean cheaper con-struction and that will allow manufacturers to play more. In the world we live in today, constrained by all the econom-ics that we have, the money is just not there anymore, said McCluskey. So its step by step, and the steps are slower unfor-tunately. There hasnt been what innovators call a disruptive technol-ogy since the Concorde, and the idea of supersonic mass trav-el has faded away with the end of that program in 2003. The only future possibilities would be for commercial flight to go either electric or ballistic literally exit the Earths atmosphere like a missile and come down some-where else on the globe, said Gerard Feldzer, an aerospace analyst who once led the French air and space museum at Le Bourget. Its a long way off, he acknowledged. Right now were not looking for speed, were looking for economy.

FAA moving toward easing electronic device useBy JOAN LOWY andSCOTT MAYEROWITZAssociated PressWASHINGTON The government is moving toward easing restrictions on airline passengers using electronic devices to listen to music, play games, read books, watch movies and work during takeoffs and landings, but it could take a few months. An industry-labor advisory committee was supposed to make recommendations next month to the Federal Aviation Administration on easing the restrictions. But the agency said in a statement Friday the dead-line has been extended to September because com-mittee members asked for extra time to finish assess-ing whether its safe to lift restrictions. The FAA recognizes consumers are intensely inter-ested in the use of personal electronics aboard aircraft; that is why we tasked a government-industry group to examine the safety issues and the feasibility of chang-ing the current restrictions, the statement said. The agency is under public and political pressure to ease the restrictions as more people bring their e-book readers, music and video players, smartphones and laptops with them when they fly. Technically, the FAA doesnt bar use of elec-tronic devices when aircraft are below 10,000 feet. But under FAA rules, airlines that want to let passengers use the devices are faced with a practical impossibility they would have to show that theyve tested every type and make of device passengers would use to ensure there is no electro-magnetic interference with aircraft radios and electrical and electronic systems. As a result, U.S. airlines simply bar all electric device use below 10,000 feet. Airline accidents are most likely to occur dur-ing takeoffs, landings, and taxiing. Cellphone calls and Internet use and trans-missions are also prohib-ited, and those restric-tions are not expected to be lifted. Using cell-phones to make calls on planes is regulated by the Federal Communications Commission. There is con-cern that making calls from fast-flying planes might strain cellular systems, interfering with service on the ground. There is also the potential annoy-ance factor whether pas-sengers will be unhappy if they have to listen to other passengers yakking on the phone. The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that a draft report by the advisory committee indicates its 28 members have reached a consensus that at least some of the current restric-tions should be eased. An official familiar with FAAs efforts on the issue said agency officials would like to find a way to allow passengers to use electron-ic devices during takeoffs and landings the same way theyre already allowed to use them when planes are cruising above 10,000 feet. The official requested ano-nymity because he wasnt authorized to speak by name. FAA Administrator Michael Huerta told a Senate panel in April that he convened the advisory committee in the hope of working out changes to the restrictions. Its good to see the FAA may be on the verge of acknowledging what the traveling public has sus-pected for years that current rules are arbitrary and lack real justification, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., one of Congress more outspoken critics of the restrictions, said in a statement. She contends that unless scientific evi-dence can be presented to justify the restrictions, they should be lifted. Edward Pizzarello, the co-founder of frequent flier discussion site MilePoint, says lifting the restriction is long overdue. I actually feel like this regulation has been tough-est on flight attendants. Nobody wants to shut off their phone, and the flight attendants are always left to be the bad guys and gals, said Pizzarello, 38, of Leesburg, Va. Actor Alec Baldwin became the face of pas-senger frustration with the restrictions in 2011 he was kicked off a New York-bound flight in Los Angeles for refusing to turn off his cellphone. Baldwin later issued an apology to fellow American Airlines passen-gers who were delayed, but mocked the flight attendant on Twitter.

By AMANDA WILLIAMSON firstname.lastname@example.org A nsleigh Summers just wanted to be like everybody else when she selected her first Yorkshire pig to show at last years Columbia County Fair. But when the 14-yearold from the Columbia City area donated her $4,000 in earnings to UF Health on June 11, she showed how kind her heart truly is. This was her idea, said Ansleighs grand mother Janice Summers. It shocked me... Im so proud of her for not being selfish. Ted Kruljac, associate director of major gifts at UF Health, said dona tions are vital to how the hospital operates. He told Summers the hospital had never seen a donation of this size from a child. Normally, they range between $1 and $100. Its a great thing that she did for us, he said. Before life-saving sur gery in 2009, Ansleigh suf fered from tetralogy of fal lot, a rare congenital heart defect that claimed the life of her 15-month-old sister. Because of the defect she didnt get enough oxygen to her brain or the rest of her body. According to Summers, Ansleighs fingertips, toes and mouth were tinged blue. Before the surgery, Ansleigh LIFE Sunday, JUNE 23, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D I t is hard for us to believe but our first restaurant review appeared in the Lake City Reporter on Sept. 25, 2011. We have now completed 43 reviews and food segments in three Currents magazines. If you think about it, thats a lot of restaurants in our area, since so often when we are trying to decide where to go to eat we think our choices are limited. Our reviews have given us opportunities to explore and expand our eating-out choices. Our first review was Mikes Hot Dogs, and our last review was the Darden empire article.

2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JUNE 23, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 Bring some flowers to the dinner table Editors Note: This column originally was published in 2009. H ave you ever looked out over a colorful bed of gor geous flowers and thought to yourself Oh, they just look good enough to eat? Well, go get some edible flower seeds and start growing some for the table. They will look good in the garden, on the table and on your plate. The unexpected color, flavor, and fragrance will add an extra dimension to your cuisine, just like fancy res taurant fare. Flowers have been a part of creative cooking for centuries, so there are many resources available on the delicate flavorings of edible flowers. Just a few include the sweet flavor of honeysuckle and daylily blooms, the slightly bitter taste of snapdragons and marigolds, the winter green flavor of violas and the spicy pepper taste of nasturtiums. If you leave the broccoli in the garden too long and the blossoms open, use the flowers for a spicy flavor. Lavender and rose petals are often used to add fragrance to food. And there is a phenomenal market now in upscale restaurants for squash blossoms. The blossoms are popular as garnishes, stuffed with cheese or sea food or fried in a cornmeal batter. Before you run outside to graze in the flower gar den with the butterflies and caterpillars, think about how you have been taking care of your plants. Have you been spraying for insects? Never eat flow ers that may have been treated with pesticides. Commercially grown flow ers from florists or plants right from the garden cen ter may have pesticide res idues. Flowers from farm ers markets and roadside stands may also have had pesticide applications. It is much safer to grow your own, chemical-free flowers for use in the kitchen. Check reliable sources such as UF/IFAS http:// solutionsforyourlife.com to make sure the flower that looks yummy is actu ally edible. Even though a flower is identified as edible, it may cause allergic reactions in some people. So try just a few blossoms at a time if you are normally sensitive to pollen and remove the pollen-bearing parts from the center. The best time to har vest flowers is in the morning after the dew has evaporated. Flowers at their peak will have the best flavor. You can keep long stemmed flowers in a vase for a day before using, but short-stemmed blossoms should be used within a few hours after picking. Put them in a zip per bag and keep them in the refrigerator until just before you use them. Then wash them off gen tly and check for insects or soil. Enjoy edible flowers as garnishes or as ingredi ents in prepared dishes. They can be frozen in ice cubes and added to a summery beverage. Flowers can be added to cheese spreads, herbal butters, vinegars and salad dressings. But dont forget to put some in the vase, too. Then enjoy the compliments to the chef. GARDEN TALK Nichelle Demorest firstname.lastname@example.org D. Nichelle Demorest is a horticulture agent with the Columbia County Extension of the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. TASTE: Buddies taking vacation Continued From Page 1D in between those two, we have been able to tell you about upscale restaurants right down to small fam ily-owned cafes and holein-the-wall gems. We have enjoyed trying new restau rants, and most of all shar ing them with our families and friends. An unexpected benefit that weve enjoyed is the wonderful reception that our readers have extended to us. Its rare when we go out, whether grocery shop ping, the movies, sports events or the mall that someone doesnt stop us and ask about our reviews and if we are one of the Taste Buddies. Our reward has been in the over whelming responses from our readers, most of whom we had never met. We were honored to be asked to judge the Wellborn Blueberry Bakeoff last year and this year. Genie recently spoke to the Newcomers and Friends Club, and we were asked to talk with a local Girl Scout troop working on their culinary badges. We really appreciated being chosen to participate in these events. We will be taking the summer off, and during that time we will be explor ing new eating spots to share with you when we return. We would love for you to email us with your res taurant suggestions as our list of places left to review is getting smaller and smaller. Dont worry, we do have other plans for our column that well be work ing out for our return. Recently we have been fortunate enough to have new restaurants open and CiCis is on the horizon. We just want to remind you that our locally owned restaurants also need your support.

Investers celebrate 66th wedding anniversary Charlton and Alice Invester, of Lake City, celebrated their 66th wedding anni versary on Friday, June 21, 2013. Alice Elizabeth Mintz, of Columbus, Ga., and Charlton Leach Invester, of Carrollton, Ga., were united in marriage on June 21, 1947, in Marietta, Ga. They celebrated with family and friends with a party at home given by their daughter, Pamela. The couple has two children, Pamela and Buddy. They also have four grandchil dren and four great-grandchildren. The couple has lived in Lake City for 35 years. They are members of of Southside Bapitst Church. Mrs. Invester bowled for many years at the Lake City Bowling Alley and worked in the kitchen at the church for several years. Mr. Invester retired as a chief master sergeant with the Air Force after 33 years of service, which included service in World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. Part of his service was in the Navy. He later was a driver for Harpers Areo Express. Both of his chil dren also are military veterans.

TEEN: Fair earnings donated Continued From Page 1D couldnt walk or crawl without growing tired. She had never uttered a word. I help kids, Ansleigh said. Help kids to get bet ter and go home. Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville became the Summers fam ilys second home during Ansleighs two-month stay after her surgery. Ansleigh was miss ing her aorta valve, and doctors told Summers there was a 50 percent chance her granddaughter wouldnt live through the surgery. But at 9-years-old and 42 pounds, Ansleigh had open heart surgery. Now she walks with the aid of family or a walker and improves daily with her speech. She even shows her own pig. Using her wheelchair, Ansleigh follows behind the pig, tapping it with a small stick to encourage it to go in the right direction. We try to teach her to be independent because one day Im not going to be here, Summers said. Id really like for the com munity and the world to know that shes just as capable doing anything any other child can do. From now until October, Ansleigh will once again be raising a pig with the intention of donating her proceeds to UF Health. She went with her uncle on Wednesday to select a 35pound blue butt pig, which she has named Bubbles. We make her do her share, Summers said. She walks him. She helps wash him. She loves to get the water hose to clean out the pens. So thats mainly her job. To Ansleigh, the work is simply babysitting the pig. Summers tried to talk her granddaughter out of donating the money, so they could place the funds into savings for Ansleighs future. But Ansleigh wouldnt do it. She still sees her heart doctor, Dr. Mark Bleiweis, regularly to monitor a band placed on her heart valve. As she gets older, the band could dete riorate. When the Summers family arrived at UF Health with the donation money, Bleisweis asked if they knew what day it was. It was the fifth anniver sary of Ansleigh heart sur gery, he told them. While showing the pigs seems to have become an annual tradition, Summers said she will support Ansleigh in whatever she wants to do. If she wants to do car washes, Im behind her, she said. I help kids. Help kids to get better and go home. Ansleigh Summers, 14 2DLIFE D id you know that your library card is one of the best ones to have in your wallet? It is power ful and even opens doors to lifelong learning, to finding a job, to connecting with family, to nurturing your children and grandchildren, to borrowing books from other libraries and to making a better life for you and your family. The public library is an endur ing institution, a community commons and a gathering place that is also a great equalizer. Its for everyone! I recently did a presentation on the Columbia County Public Library for a group that seemed skeptical that people were still using the library. After all, doesnt everyone have an iPad or a smart phone? By the end of the hour, they seemed con vinced they better check out the library, especially when one of the people in the audience said the library was the happening place every time he was there. Author Jerry Spinellis book, The Library Card, tells the story of four young people who are each given a library card and how the card helps them make changes that influence the rest of their lives. Two copies of the book are located at the Main Library. A library card can open doors for people with vision issues, because CCPL has a huge selec tion of large-print books and books on CD. You dont have to miss the latest best-sellers because you are unable to see the small print clearly anymore Your library card today can open doors to a wealth of free e-books that you can download right from the Librarys home page (www.ccpl.sirsi.net). Why purchase them if you can read them for free from the Library? There are no fines, either, because the books disappear from your account when they are due. Our collection includes latest best-sellers, such as Dan Browns Inferno and Amanda Knoxs Waiting to be Heard. Are you looking for an outdoor project this summer? Download Easy-to-Build Outdoor Projects: 29 Projects for Your Yard and Garden by the editors of Popular Woodworking magazine. Your library card can save you money. On the CCPL website, there is a link to a valuator that will tell you how much you save by checking out the free library resources. You will be amazed! I can still smell the lemon pol ish used to make the beautiful wood shine in our local public library when I was growing up in suburban Rochester, N.Y. My library card opened the door to discovery, and it was so much fun. I discovered Nancy Drew books and read every single one of them. I discovered how much I enjoyed biographies and how my favorite became one about Benjamin Franklin. I think almost everyone has a story about how their public library opened doors to entertainment and information. Former Florida Secretary of State Kurt Browning used to tell the audiences at new library grand openings and librarian meetings stories about going to his Pasco County public library as a child and his road to discov ery. One of the best things about the Columbia County Public Library is you have the ability to browse the shelves at all three library locations. You would be surprised at what you might find when you are looking for some thing else. September is National Library Card Signup Month. Dont you want to have the card in your wallet that opens doors to won der and discovery? And its free.

Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JUNE 23, 2013 3D Cathleen Spaying and neutering our animals is an important thing. Did you know that one unspayed female cat and one unneutered male cat can produce 420,000 kittens in seven years? They can. One unaltered female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in just six years. Yes, I understand that kittens and puppies are adorable, but lets look at the money it costs, thou-sands of dollars on those several thousand kittens and puppies. Spaying and neutering is expensive, but in the long run very cheap. The Humane Society takes your pets and spays or neuters them inexpensively through North Florida Paws. I have seven cats and all of them started life as strays, including a mama cat and her kittens. Kayla Spaying and neutering is a topic much ignored. Every year in the U.S., 25,000 cats die in shelters awaiting adoption, while 45,000 of them are eutha-nized. Thats 70,000 cats that die unnecessarily. The deaths of stray animals could be avoided if you spayed or neutered your cats and dogs. That dead dog lying in the side if the road? Its most likely a stray. Its death could have been prevented by the most obvious thing. In six years, one stray cat turns into 420,000. That is 420,000 cats that live alone, hunting for food, staying away from predators. If you spay and neuter your animals it will save many lives.Madison-Rose Spaying and neutering your animals is a great idea for many reasons. One, the animal population is increasing to the point of more people getting rid of their pets. According to the Humane Society, in the United States there are an estimated 6 million to 8 million home-less animals entering ani-mal shelters every year. Only about half of these ani-mals are adopted. The other half are euthanized. These are healthy, sweet animals that would have made great pets. The number of homeless animals is different from state to state. In some states there are as many as 300,000 homeless animals euthanized in animal shel-ters every year. These are not the offspring of home-less street animals. These are the puppies and kittens of cherished family pets and even purebreds. Many people are surprised to learn that nation-wide more than 3 million cats and dogs are eutha-nized in shelters. Spaying and neutering is the only permanent, 100 percent effective method of birth control for dogs and cats. Another thing that bothers me is people who sell animals on the street in the heat. Just because you have them under a tree, does not mean they are not hot. I believe this is a form of ani-mal cruelty. Our local animal shelter has many animals that have been abandoned because people breed them so much they cannot take care of them. So they are either dumped at the animal shel-ter or being left to run wild. A couple of years ago, the Girl Scouts did a Parade of Paws to help the animal shelter with their never-end-ing amount of animals. In fact, while doing this, we got our dog, Maggie-Mae, a wire-haired, terrier mix. We were told when we were adopting her that she had been abandoned and was found roaming the streets. When she was brought to the animal shelter, she was hungry and had infections in both her ears and eyes. Today, she is very healthy, and very spoiled, and we are so happy and lucky to have her. Spaying, neutering pets a mustEditors Note: The following column by members of Girl Scout Troop 525 provides a youthful per-spective on issues of the day.

GIRL SCOUT PERSPECTIVE By JENNIFER FORKERAssociated PressFor a lot of kids, summertime beckons with temptations to sleep in late, watch too much TV, swim, roam. And thats just the first day.Boredom sets in soon after.So provide kids with crafts that inspire awe, not blahs. Two reliable sources are Martha Stewart Living and Family Fun magazines, which post kids crafts online. Martha Stewart Living editors have also just released Martha Stewarts Favorite Crafts for Kids (Potter Craft); many of the projects in this heavy tome are retooled from the magazines pages, which means they can also be found online. Creativebug, meanwhile, offers online craft classes for kids through-out the summer, including a no-sew tepee, Shrinky Dink jewelry and Kool Aid-dyed yarn. Theres a cost for most projects here. Or roam Pinterest, the online board to which photos and do-it-yourself projects are pinned, to find science and nature as well as arts and crafts fare. Media and craft-ing sites that originate projects often post their ideas to Pinterest. Teen-age tinkerers can attend a free virtual camp by following Make magazine on Google Plus. Teen campers have access to do-it-your-self electronic, robotic even craft-ing projects. Camp, now in its second summer, runs July 8 through Aug. 16, and includes virtual field trips and an online hangout site for posting project images and sharing ideas. One crafting idea that may amaze kids of all ages for its novelty and sim-plicity is gelatin printing. This low-tech craft uses the following: a pan of gelatin such as the Knox brand, ink, paper, maybe an ink brayer and a col-lection of leaves. Thats it. Kristen Sutcliffe, of Oberlin, Ohio, writes about gelatin printing at her blog, New House Project. I love that kind of project, where its easy, you can do it with your kids, but its beautiful, says Sutcliffe. Author of the new book Fabric, Paper, Thread (C&T Publishing), Sutcliffe, 30, says the gelatin pro-vides a flexible medium for inking, and both positive and negative prints can be made. The surface is just the right amount of sticky to hold the leaves and things in place and keep the paper in place while you are press-ing/rubbing it, Sutcliffe says on her blog. It works best with smaller leaves and those that are textured. Ferns and geraniums work well. Use any paper or try a fabric. Sutcliffe has used canvas but recommends a smoother fabric such as muslin or cotton for a cleaner print. She recommends using a screenprinting ink, such as Speedball, which works on paper or fabric. And she also suggests investing in a brayer, which will spread the ink uni-formly without nicking the delicate gelatin surface. If youre careful, you can make a dozen or more prints with a single batch of gelatin, Sutcliffe says.GELATIN PRINTINGIngredients:Gelatin, such as Knox brand, 8-ounce packets Water, 5 cups9-by-13-inch baking sheet with edges Printmaking brayerPrinting ink, such as Speedball Screen Printing Ink (available at craft stores and online) Assorted leavesPaper or fabricPaper plateDirections:1. The gelatin needs a few hours to set. It can be made the night before you want to print. In a large pot, bring 5 cups of water to boil, then whisk in gelatin, one packet at a time, avoiding clumps. Pour mixture onto baking sheet and allow to cool and set. 2. To print, pour small amount of ink onto the plate; use the brayer to fully cover the gelatin with ink (a thin layer for working with paper; a heavy amount for printing on fab-ric). Place leaves on the ink-covered gelatin. Place your paper or fabric on top; rub. 3. Remove the paper or fabric: This is your first print (the negative). 4. Carefully remove leaves from the baking sheet (save them for reuse, if desired) and place a new piece of paper or fabric over the ink and rub; remove. This provides the positive print (the leaves imprints remain in the gelatin until its re-inked). 5. Re-ink the gelatin to make additional positive and negative prints. By ALISON LADMANAssociated PressWhether youre grilling a standard beef burger, a bison patty, a chicken breast or even a humble portobello mushroom cap, its time to move beyond the basic adornments of ketchup and a slice of cheese. And adding pickles and tomatoes even arti-sanal and heirloom speci-mens doesnt count. To help you make this a summer of way better burgers, we dreamed up some fresh ways to dress them that will be easy and delicious, no matter what they are made of.

ASSOCIATED PRESSA menu board showing calorie counts hangs at a Starbuc ks in New York. The Seattle-based coffee chain says it will start posting calorie counts on menu boards nationwide.Starbucks to post calorie counts By CANDICE CHOIAP Food Industry WriterNEW YORK Starbucks has a new way to wake up its customers: showing the calories in its drinks. The Seattle-based coffee chain says it will start posting calorie counts on menu boards nationwide next week, ahead of a fed-eral regulation that would require it to do so. Calorie counts on menus are already required in some parts of the country, including New York City. But starting Tuesday, Starbucks Corp. says cus-tomers at its more than 11,000 U.S. locations will be able to see that there are 300 calories in a small caramel Frappuccino and 230 calories in a small Iced Caffe Mocha. Pastry cases will also show calorie information, in case customers want to save some calories and opt for a Morning Bun (350 calories) instead of a blue-berry scone (460 calories). The move by Starbucks comes as the Food and Drug Administration irons out the details of a regu-lation that would require companies with more than 20 locations to post calorie information on their menus. Other chains, including McDonalds Corp., have also moved ahead with posting the information, saying theyre providing it to be more transparent rather than because theyre being forced to. In its announcement, Starbucks highlighted the various steps it has taken over the years to give cus-tomers choices, such as adding sugar-free syrup in 1997 and making 2 per-cent milk the standard for core beverages in North America in 2007.

DEAR ABBY: I am in my late 60s. When I men-tioned to a retired friend my desire to move to a Southern state known for economic friendliness toward retirees, I discov-ered she was thinking the same thing. We decided it would be good to buy a house together as tenants in com-mon with rights of survi-vorship, and to share living expenses. Because I have no family and my friend has very little, neither of us cares what the survivor does with the house. Im wondering whether you or your readers have had any experi-ence moving 1,000 miles away at this stage of life. -CONTEMPLATING CHANGE IN RHODE ISLAND DEAR CONTEMPLATING CHANGE: Before heading off for the great unknown, you and your friend should consider renting a place for a year. It will give you a chance to gauge your compatibility and learn about the community before locking yourselves in with a mortgage. And if you havent already, each of you should review your plans with an attorney of your own. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: Is it proper for my husband and I to share a meal when dining out with friends? Restaurant portions are quite large and we eat out most nights. We find sharing is better not only for our health but also for our waistlines. We usually order an appetizer, a salad, an entree, dessert, coffee and a nice bottle of wine. My husband tips 20 percent of the total of the check. Id like your guidance in this matter. Thank you. -CAREFUL EATER IN CARMEL, IND. DEAR CAREFUL EATER: There is nothing rude about suggesting to your dinner companions that you ask the server for separate checks for the reason you stated. And congratulations on manag-ing your portion control, which many healthand diet-conscious people are doing these days. Bon appetit! ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Im a single, successful professional woman who carries her weight in one place -my belly. Despite many diets and exercise programs, I am unable to lose my belly. Because of this, Im often mistaken for being preg-nant. Strangers in shopping malls, at professional seminars and in hotels while traveling will ask me when I am due. My usual response is, Im not preg-nant. Im just chubby and need to hit the gym. The last straw was at a recent book signing where the author wrote, Enjoy your growing life. Any thoughts? -NOT A BABY BUMP IN MILWAUKEE DEAR NOT A BABY BUMP: Have you consid-ered wearing a foundation garment? If you already wear one, then I have more suggestions. First, discuss this with your doctor, a nutritionist and a personal trainer. And if they cant help you, talk to a board-certified plastic surgeon about liposuction. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take a break and distance yourself from your everyday dilemmas. Its important to have fun and relax with friends in order to rejuvenate. A mini vacation or day trip will encourage you to live in the moment and enjoy life more. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Share your thoughts and make plans to do something special with the person or people you find most entertaining and fun to be with. Taking care of your needs first will improve your attitude and your productivity. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Put some time and effort into your future. Consider what you have accomplished and what goals you have yet to achieve. Youll find a way to turn something youve always enjoyed doing into a worthwhile endeavor. Your actions can make a difference. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take on a challenge that will make your life more inviting. A couple of personal changes will boost your confidence. Express your thoughts and feelings and you will resolve personal issues that have been bothering you. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Dont fold under pressure. Stick to what you can do without causing undue stress. Expand your per-sonal interests and friend-ships and enjoy what life has to offer without feeling obligated to look out for everyone else. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your involvement in a volunteer group will lead to new friendships. Dealing with a cause will give you a better sense of who you are and what you are capable of doing. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Dont let life spin out of control. Listen to complaints being made and find solutions that will allow you to move on and enjoy the things that make you happy. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Getting together with friends will brighten your day. Rely on your memory and experience when a decision needs to be made. ++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Fix up your place or consider making a move. Taking care of personal paperwork will encourage you to make changes that will bring you higher profits. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Address personal issues. Discuss your feel-ings and what your plans are for the future. Dont let a challenge lead to an impulsive move you may regret. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Forget about your responsibilities and take a break. Feeling re-energized will help you attack any challenge with vigor and stamina. Once you take the opportunity to relax, youll discover ways to solve any problem you face. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Socialize, participate and share your thoughts and ideas. Getting together with someone you find interesting will lead to an interesting opportunity that will allow you to use your skills, experience and knowledge to earn extra money. Love is on the rise. ++++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 *Some boat covers6 Exorbitant10 Eye liner?14 Climbed&OLPERQWR3DSDV ODS %HDXVJLUO$ORWRIWKH%HDWOHV 6KH/RYHV
