SUNDAYEDITION Vol. 138, No. 369 1D 1C 1ANew laws set to take effectBy JIM TURNERThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE The states $74.1 billion budget, which will fund 114,481 state employee positions 3,955 more than in the current fiscal year kicks in on Monday. The fiscal package also includes the first raise those workers will see in seven years. At the same time, nearly 200 new laws approved by the Legislature and signed by Gov. Rick Scott will take effect. The bills range from a limit on the law enforcement use of drones to how money is raised to build nuclear power plants to new rules for Citizens Property Insurance Corp. There also will be, come Monday, a crackdown on cyberbullying, conversion of low-speed vehicles into golf carts and a prohibition on the sale of bongs. A new law against texting while driving (SB 52) doesnt take effect until Oct. 1, while changes to campaign fundraising (HB 7013) wont take effect until next year. By JIM TURNERThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott defended his support for the Second Amendment as he signed a narrowly-focused firearms bill into law Friday, making it harder for the mentally ill to buy guns. The measure, which has gotten caught in a cross-fire among gun rights groups, was one of 46 bills signed into law on Friday. The bill (HB 1355) blocks firearms purchases by some people who volun-tarily admit themselves for mental-health treatment. In a letter accompanying the bill signing, Scott noted that the measure was the product of mental health and Second Amendment advocates, while he also highlighted his history of support for gun rights. During the 2012 GOP Convention, I was asked to issue a temporary exec-utive order to override laws that allow people to Scott signs firearms limit bill Bans on bongs, drones, cyberbullying among numerous new measures. Scott acts quickly after appeals court lifts stay.Gores death date resetFrom staff and wire service reportsGov. Rick Scott on Friday issued a new execution date for Marshall Lee Gore after a federal appeals court lifted its tem-porary stay of the sentence. Gore, found by a state panel of psychiatrists last month to be competent to be put to death, is now set to die by lethal injection on July 10 at Florida State Prison near Starke. The execution was set for last Monday before the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta ordered a delay. The court later ruled that the request by Gores attorney failed to meet the merits for the stay. The attorney had claimed that Gore was mentally ill, and executing him in such a cir-cumstance would violate his Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterLake City resident Mike Klanderud braves the currents a s he floats in the Ichetucknee River Friday.

AROUND FLORIDA Friday: 12-24-32-43 14 Friday: 1-8-16-22-25 Saturday: Afternoon: 3-2-7 Evening: N/A Saturday: Afternoon: 6-9-4-5 Evening: N/A Wednesday: 5-13-18-28-31-43 x3 Week of testimony concludes in Zimmerman trial SANFORD The first week of George Zimmermans seconddegree murder trial wrapped up with testimony from two neighbors and a police officer that seemed to bolster the defenses argument that he was pinned on his back by Trayvon Martin before shooting the teen. Neighbor Jonathan Good testified Friday that it appeared the unarmed teen was straddling the neighborhood watch volunteer, while another neighbor, Jonathan Manalo, said Zimmerman seemed credible when he said just after the fight that he shot Martin in selfdefense. Officer Tim Smith testified that Zimmermans back side was covered in grass and wetter than his front side. All three were called as witnesses for prosecutors who are trying to convict him of second-degree murder. Good, who had per haps the best view of any witness, said he did not see anyones head being slammed into the concrete sidewalk, as Zimmerman claims Martin did to him. Good initially testified that it appeared there were strikes being thrown, punches being thrown, but during detailed ques tioning he said he saw only downward arm move ments being made. Zimmerman has claimed that he fatally shot 17-yearold Martin in February 2012 in self-defense as the Miami-area teen was banging his head into the concrete sidewalk behind the townhomes in a gated community. Atheists unveil monument STARKE A group of atheists unveiled a monu ment to their nonbelief in God on Saturday to sit alongside a granite slab that lists the Ten Commandments in front of the Bradford County courthouse. As a small group of pro testers blasted Christian country music and waved Honk for Jesus signs, the atheists celebrated what they believe is the first atheist monument allowed on government property in the United States. When you look at this monument, the first thing you will notice is that it has a function. Atheists are about the real and the physical, so we selected to place this monument in the form of a bench, said David Silverman, president of American Atheists. It also serves another function a counter to the religious monument that the New Jersey-based group wanted removed. Its a case of if you cant beat em, join em. American Atheists sued to try to have the stone slab with the Ten Commandments taken away from the courthouse lawn in this rural, conser vative north Florida town best known for the prison that confines death row inmates. The Community Mens Fellowship erected the monument in whats described as a free speech zone. During mediation on the case, the atheist group was told it could have its own monument, too. Were not going to let them do it without a counterpoint, Silverman said. If we do it without a counterpoint, its going to appear very strongly that the government actually endorses one religion over another, or I should say religion in general over non-religion. About 200 people attended the unveiling. Most were supportive, though there were pro testers, including a group from Florida League of the South that had signs that said Yankees Go Home. Woman rescued from alligator LOXAHATCHEE A woman was rescued by airboat on Saturday in a remote part of the Florida Everglades after an alliga tor bit her inflatable boat and caused it to sink, authorities said. The woman was float ing on an inflatable boat in the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge when the gator attacked the raft, according to Palm Beach County Fire Rescue. At 12:16 p.m. authorities responded to reports of a woman being attacked by an alligator, but later dis covered she had been on a boat that was bitten by the gator. Due to the remoteness of the location, firefight ers utilized an airboat to reach the woman, said Fire Rescue spokesman Capt. Albert Borroto. The woman, who will not be identified due to privacy concerns, was evaluated at the scene. She was not injured, but she was shaken up by the attack, Borroto said. Fire crews transported her back to dry land. The wildlife refuge west of Boynton Beach is the last northernmost portion of the Everglades. The area where the woman was found is popular for canoes, kayaks and hikers and the wildlife is very abundant, Borroto said. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Loxahatchee Refuge consists of more than 200 square miles of Everglades habitat. Man sentenced for wifes death CLEARWATER A Tampa Bay area man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for killing his ail ing wife. A Pinellas County judge sentenced 56-year-old Albert Crandall on Friday. He was tried in May on a charge of second-degree murder, but the jury con victed him of the lesser count of manslaughter. Authorities say Crandall suffocated his wife, 61year-old Judith Lee Davis, with a pillow in their St. Petersburg apartment in April 2012 and then tried to kill himself by cutting his wrists. In an email to his sister, Crandall explained that his wife had been suffering for months, and he was over whelmed by the medical expenses. LOS ANGELES J ennifer Lopez, Lena Dunham, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Lucy Liu have received one of the most exclusive invitations in Hollywood. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Friday that it has invited them, and 272 others, to join its ranks. Other invitees include Jason Bateman, Rosario Dawson, Machete star Danny Trejo, Bridesmaids director Paul Feig and Before Midnight writer-star Julie Delpy. All 16 branches of the film acad emy extended invitations to new members, from hairstylists and sound engineers to producers and publicists. Those who accept the invitations will be able to vote on the recipients of the next Academy Awards, set for March 2. Natalie Cole releases first Spanish album SANTA MONICA, Calif. Its been four years since Natalie Cole received a kidney from a Salvadorian donor, and the singer says it not only connected her to Hispanic culture, it has given her the strength to record her first post-operation album totally in Spanish. I dont believe in coincidences. I believe everything happens for a reason. That this was a Latin fam ily, I feel like Im part Latino now. That (made) the desire to make this record became even stronger, Cole said recently during a private listening session of Natalie Cole En Espanol, released this week. This is Coles first album since she received her kidney in May 2009. Her donor was a young woman from El Salvador who died while giving birth to a baby boy, Lucas, said Cole (the Grammy-winner received the donation after suffering from hepati tis C, a liver disease spread through contact with infected blood). I couldnt totally grasp, under stand it, but theres something there, the spirit of this young girl, the spirit of this family, the spirit of the Latin culture, of a Latin heart is inside me, the 63-year-old said. The album title is reminiscent of her famous father Nat King Coles Cole Espanol, which brought him love and recognition in Spanishspeaking countries. Black people and Hispanic people have the same kind of feel for pas sion, for music, for fun, for heart, Cole said. We are very similar in that way and that to me is the next language. I love French ... I love Portuguese, I love Italiano, but for me right now is Espanol. Philly rapper ordered to take etiquette classes PHILADELPHIA A judge has ordered rapper Meek Mill to attend etiquette classes and notify his pro bation officer before he takes any trips outside of Pennsylvania. Common Pleas Court Judge Genece Brinkley on Friday told the rapper, whose real name is Robert Williams, he must complete the classes before Aug. 4. The orders came at a probation violation hearing for Williams, who is on probation for a 2008 gun and drug conviction for which he was sentenced to 11 to 23 months in prison. He served eight months in jail and began five years of probation in the fall of 2009. Assistant District Attorney Noel Ann DeSantis said Williams state ments on Twitter and other social media had been followed by threats to his probation officer from some of his fans. Williams told the judge at the contentious hearing that detailing his travel plans was difficult because many of his business activities are arranged on short notice.

Alfred William Hatcher, 19, 195 NE Campus Place, was charged with arson and booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $25,000 bond. According to a Columbia County Sheriffs Office report, on Thursday night depu ties responded to a struc ture fire at 149 NE Campus Place. The Columbia County Fire Department extinguished the blaze, which caused interior dam age. Witnesses gave deputies a description of a suspi cious person seen near the house before the fire. Investigators were able to identify the suspect as Hatcher and found him at his residence a short dis tance away, according to the report. By DEREK GILLIAM firstname.lastname@example.org A host on radio sta tion 96.5 The Jets morn ing show was arrested Wednesday for allegedly writing a check he knew to be worthless. Kenneth E. Allen, 50, is charged with writing a $1,760 check Oct. 4 to Limited Access Property, Inc., when he knew he did not have money in the account, according to documents from the Third Circuit State Attorneys office. The documents indicate the account was closed when Paul Barcia, president of Limited Access Property, tried to cash the check. Barcia said Allen rent ed a house from him at 687 NW Ridgewood Ave. for about two years, but after the check bounced, he evicted Allen. Roberta Getzan, assistant state attorney, said when a worthless check is passed, theres a pre-trial diversion program offered to the defendant. That occurred in this case as well. Getzan said the state attorneys office received the complaint sent Allen a notice to appear, dated Oct. 30. The notice informed Allen a criminal complaint had been filed with the office and offered him the option of pre-trial diver sion. Allen did not comply with the pre-trial diversion program, so a warrant for his arrest was issued in January, Getzan said. After being booked on the charge Wednesday, Allen was released from the Columbia County Detention Facility on $5,000 bail. By DEREK GILLIAM email@example.com The Suwannee River Water Management District will discuss devel opment of minimum flows and levels for local water ways at the Lake City city councils meeting at 7 p.m. in City Hall. Jon Dinges, SRWMD assistant executive direc tor, will speak about the impact for the area of set ting minimum flows and levels for the lower Santa Fe River, Ichetucknee River and district springs. Also, council will hold a public hearing on changing the citys code relating to solid waste. This will be the final chance for residents of the city to voice their opin ions on the matter before the council votes. Council also could approve a resolution that enters the city into a agree ment with Quality Tower Services to take down a 320-foot city communica tions tower and replace it with a 300-foot tower. Before the council meet ing, the citys Community Redevelopment Agency will consider approving a resolution that would par tially reimburse Southern Resource Contracting, Inc., of 597 N. Marion Ave., for building a 12-foot-tall fence with privacy slats. Southern Resource Contracting is a salvage yard, and the redevelop ment agency wants to screen the companys operation, as it deems it an eyesore. The cost, if approved, will be $21, 000. The CRA meeting will start at 6:45 p.m. in City Hall. Allen Hatcher GORE: Execution rescheduled July 10 Continued From Page 1A constitutional rights under previous U.S. Supreme Court rulings. Gore, 49, was convicted and sentenced to death in 1990 for the 1988 slaying of Susan Roark. Roarks body was found in Columbia County. Gore was later convicted and sentenced to death for the 1988 murder of Robyn Novick in Miami-Dade County. It is Novicks death for which he is to be exe cuted. Gore initially was found guilty on May 5, 1995, of first-degree murder and armed robbery of Novick on March 10, 1988. Following the jurys death recommendation, the trial court imposed a sentence of death for the first-degree murder of Novick. The Florida Supreme Court, on direct appeal, reversed Gores convictions and sen tences for a new trial. Following retrial, Gore again was found guilty on Feb. 12, 1999, of first-degree murder of Novick. The new jury also recommended a sentence of death on April 19, 1999. The state Supreme Court affirmed Gores conviction and death sentence. The trial court denied all postconviction relief on Sept. 1, 2005. Family members of both women were present June 24 when the original exe cution was scheduled at Florida State Prison.

Neither the Florida Constitution nor any state law now in effect gives those attending public meetings the right to speak at such gatherings. Come Oct. 1 that will change, now that Gov. Rick Scott has signed into law Senate Bill 50, guaranteeing the publics right to be heard. That right is not absolute.Under SB 50 you still wont be able to rant at will, and you cant simply interject your opinion into official proceedings as you see fit. Beyond that, the new law wont have any effect on our county com-mission, city council or school board, all of which already provide those in attendance reasonable opportunity to be heard under the new standards. Still, this complement to Floridas Sunshine Law is an important step forward. The governor did the right thing by signing it. T he Book of Proverbs, part of biblical canon, once a vital part of American culture, tells us: Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall. Its this haughty spirit, this pride that precedes destruction, that lies behind the Supreme Courts deci-sion last week to bury the Defense of Marriage Act. DOMA defined marriage, for purposes of federal law, as traditional marriage -the union of man and woman. This decision did not come out of nowhere. It did not happen in a vacuum. It is but the latest in a long process of the unraveling of American culture driven by pride -the sense that we answer to no higher authority. That the two-legged animal man is master of the universe and decides, invents right and wrong, true and false. There have been many stops on the way to this Supreme Court decision relegating marriage, as we have known and understood it for millennia, to a casual fiction that could come out of Hollywood. One stop we might note was the Supreme Courts decision in 1980, Stone v. Graham, that said that post-ing the Ten Commandments in a public school is unconstitutional. A free society must start with a foundation of rules. If our biblical tradition is not the source of these rules, what rules do define how we live and where do these rules come from? The preamble of our Constitution tells us that its purpose is to secure the blessings of liberty. What is a blessing? The first definition in my Websters New World Dictionary says that a blessing is a statement of divine favor. How can we secure divine favor in a nation for which the divine is unconstitutional? A prideful nation by definition must be a nation that rejects the idea of a blessing. In the pride that precedes destruction in America of 2013, we reject that there are truths that dont come out of a laboratory. We reject that that there are truths that parents get from their parents and pass on to their children. We reject that there are truths that, when children learn them from their parents, and embrace them and become responsible for them, they become adults. So now we live in society in which there is nothing that distin-guishes a child from an adult, that distinguishes responsible from irre-sponsible. Who suffers the most?First and foremost, children. Because they are deprived from learning and taking seriously the very rules of lifes road that are critical to live successfully. Even more so, children from minority families. Sixty seven percent of black children are raised in single parent households. The collapse of black family life reflects this very wel-fare-state materialism, bestowed to blacks by elitist white liberals, that defines the culture that now rejects the sanctity of traditional marriage. Can there be any doubt that the grandparents and great-grandpar-ents of the five Supreme Court jus-tices who just voted to delegitimize the sanctity of traditional marriage in America would be appalled by the decisions of their offspring? ... America is a free country. You can do what you want in private. But when values of meaninglessness become sanctioned as part of our public and official culture we should know that this is the pride that goes before destruction. Let there be no doubt that samesex marriage is about much more than marriage. It is a deliberate and conscious assault on religion and all traditional values. We have only two options. Turn back to where we belong or watch the continuing collapse of our coun-try. Editors note: The following is in response to an opinion piece titled Common Core is no threat, reprint-ed in the Lake City Reporter on June 18 from the Tampa Tribune. T he Florida Stop Common Core Coalition respectfully but firmly disagrees with the Tribunes June 16 editorial Common Core is no threat. The Common Core system of national standards, tests, model curriculum, and data collection is very much a threat on a number of fronts. This system is a threat to academic quality. While the editorial board is correct to point out the crisis of 78 percent of Florida high school graduates not being ready for college, there is absolutely no evidence that switching to the Common Core standards will help improve the situation. In fact, the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, commonly cited by Common Core proponents as an authority on the quality of state standards, rated Floridas current math and English standards roughly the same as the Common Core. If the current Florida standards that are resulting in 78 percent of students needing remediation are basically equivalent to Common Core, how will adopt-ing these new standards help? Why spend another projected $1 billion the state does not have for standards that will probably not improve anything? Common Core is a threat to local control. Claims that states and dis-tricts can control implementation and curriculum choices are true only in theory. The federally funded and supervised national tests and model curriculum will determine curriculum because stakes are very high for test results, including graduation, teacher pay, and district funding. These tests are aligned to the national Common Core stan-dards, NOT the 15 percent of so-called extra material that the states were allowed to add as their own after being required to adopt 100 perent of Common Core verbatim. Districts will choose the curriculum that they think will help them pass the tests. Those choices are much more likely to be close to the model curriculum and the text examples in the English standards that include such controversial texts as the Julie Alvarez novel In the Time of the Butterflies. That novel is recommended for 9th and 10th graders even though some col-lege professors are embarrassed to teach it due to its sexually explicit nature and its glorification of tyrants like Fidel Castro. Finally, the state longitudinal data systems that states were required to adopt along with the standards in order to receive Race to the Top and other stimulus funding during a severe recession, is an enormous threat to students and families data privacy. This data system will link the test results for the new stan-dards to the 300-400 points of other very private data, like the iris scans that occurred in Polk County without parental consent. This womb to tomb dossier will make the NSAs data collection look tame. Do not believe for one moment that it is just the freedom-minded Tea Party groups that oppose Common Core. It is parents, teach-ers, professors, small business owners, and many highly respected policy organizations from different points on the political and philosophical spectra. Our coalition is growing and politicians of any party that continue to push this boondog-gle will likely regret it.

Here are highlights of some of the laws taking effect Monday:EducationHB 21: Requires the Department of Education to conduct background screening for non-instruc-tional contractors that will be on school grounds, and creates a statewide identi-fication badge for the con-tractors. HB 609: Cracks down on cyberbullying in public schools by expand-ing what school districts are allowed to punish at school and when children are not at school if the non-school bullying affects education. SB 1664: Requires that at least 50 percent of a class-room teachers or school administrators perfor-mance evaluation be based on the growth or achieve-ment of the students under his or her charge.

High-performing charters would be allowed to boost their enrollment annually, and the Department of Education is charged with proposing a standard con-tract for charter schools. Allows school boards the ability to set up a pub-lic Innovation School of Technology that could get much of the same flex-ibility as charter schools if they use new technol-ogy in instruction. And bars students from being taught by low-performing teachers in the same sub-ject two years in a row.TransportationSB 62: Allows streetlegal, low-speed vehicles to be reclassified as golf carts, a move to reduce registration and insurance costs. HB 7125: An omnibus transportation package that: prevents ticketing motorists as long as vehi-cles come to a stop, even after crossing the stop line, before making legal right turns on red; creates specialty license plates for the American Legion, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Laurens Kids, which is a program aimed at prevent-ing sexual abuse of chil-dren; and bars drivers in left lane from going more than 10 mph below the posted speed limit if they know they are being over-taken from behind by fastermoving vehicles.Environmental and agricultureSB 244: Allows watermanagement districts to enter into cooperative agreements.

Law enforcementHB 49: Prohibits the sale of metal, wooden, acrylic, glass, stone, plas-tic, or ceramic smoking pipes, chillums or bongs. SB 92: Restricts the use of unmanned aerial drones by law enforcement unless a judge issues a warrant, there is a high risk of ter-rorist attack or officials fear someone is in immi-nent danger.

BILLS: Scott signs many Continued From Page 1Acarry concealed weapons, which I denied because it was unclear how disarming law-abiding citizens would better protect them from the damages and threats posed by those who would flout the law, Scott wrote. Additionally, Ive signed legislation protecting the privacy of firearm owners and stopping local govern-ments from overreaching in the regulation of firearms. The bill was crafted in the wake of 20 children and six adults being gunned down at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. A Rasmussen poll released on Dec. 19, 2012, the week after the shoot-ing, found 48 percent of Americans believed more action to treat mental health issues would do the most to prevent such shootings. The bill, backed by the National Rifle Association and Unified Sportsmen of Florida, moved through the Legislature with little oppo-sition. The public opposition came through two out-of-state groups, the Colorado-based National Association for Gun Rights and the Gun Owners of America. Also on Friday Scott signed into law Senate Bill 50, guaranteeing members of the public the right to speak at public meetings. While most government meetings in Florida must be open to the public, courts have found that, under cur-rent law, there is no guar-antee that citizens get to speak at those meetings. The measure, sponsored by Sen. Joe Negron, R-Stuart, exempts emergency meet-ings from the requirement and allows for time and decorum limits.

The Tigers must replace quarterback Jayce Barber, who graduated last fall, and the coach feels that the competition is narrow-ing down. The Tigers traveled to Gainesville this week for a 7-on-7 passing camp against both Buchholz and Union County high schools. In the scrimmage, one quarterback shined, but Allen feels the competition is still between two Tigers. I thought that Nathan Taylor had a very strong showing, Allen said. The good thing about it is that is kind of fired Jake (Thomas) up. He also had a pretty good outing. Im extremely pleased with the outcome. They were both able to orchestrate scoring drives. Helping the quarterbacks along is the quick development at receiver as the Tigers had two young players emerge. Caleb Carsewell had a very impressive outing with two or three touch-downs, Allen said. Akeem Williams has been very impressive. Its very realis-tic that we could head into the season with them as our No. 1 and No. 2 receiv-ers. Both are going to be very good this year. Taylor, Thomas shine in 7-on-7 passing league.

LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, JUNE 30, 2013 3B3BSPORTS Both are players coming onto the scene after not get-ting a lot of snaps last year. Caleb is a rising junior, but weve seen it in prac-tice a lot, Allen said. Its not a surprise to have him performing like this. Hes done it time and time again. Akeem is another that weve brought up, but he hasnt had a chance to prove him-self in a real game yet. He could turn out to be the real deal. Allen wasnt quite ready to tip his hand on who would be taking the first reps when it comes to throwing the receivers the ball in the fall, however, saying only that the competition has been narrowed. I can say the competition is down to two, Allen said. We want to get them as many reps during the summer as we can. Theyre neck and neck. Theyre both doing some good things and theyre both doing some things they shouldnt. But just because the passing game is taking cen-ter stage during the sum-mer with 7-on-7 camps, that doesnt mean the Tigers will change their identity next season. We absolutely wont be changing it, Allen said. Its just a matter of thats what we can do in these 7-on-7 drills. No way, shape, or form are we changing who we are. Were going to stick to the run. I still feel the more that we can run, the more its going to open up the air. We want to be able to use the passing game when we have to, but were going to run. On the defensive side of things, Allen said the Tigers should be as good as ever with a loaded sec-ondary. We only gave up a couple of scores, he said. Buchholz scored on the last play. If their coach wasnt running the clock, they probably wouldnt have scored. It was one of those situations that they had a Hail Mary and completed it. I think we had six picks. Leading the group is senior standout Trey Marshall. Trey had a few and Zedrick Woods looks like the player people think he can be, Allen said. Were tweaking our defense a little to give different looks. The key to the different looks is the Tigers versatility. Bryan Williams gives us the ability to change some things, Allen said. He can play nickel or free safety and we can drop Ben (Kuykendall) down to linebacker. With Roger Cray having the ability to be scary good, we can be very good in the secondary. Its good to see them doing things under the lights in a competitive atmosphere for the first time. Making things easier on the secondary is the standout play of Woods this summer. He has a chance to be scary special, Allen said. He has the ability to be a big league linebacker. The coach from Buchholz even noticed. He was able to do some things for us last year, but well be counting on him this year as a junior. Its not his first rodeo. Columbia will take next week off before returning to practice on July 8. Were going to come back, get strong and get ready for Deland, Allen said. The season is getting closer.

A second man was taken into custody in connection with the murder charge against former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez in the shooting death of one of his friends. Meanwhile, relatives of the victim prepared for his funeral. Two men who authorities say were in a car with Hernandez before one of his friends was shot to death are in custody.

By TONY BRITT email@example.com T he Florida Gateway Food Bank has a new truck as it officially kicks off its mobile food delivery program. The program is called: Feed A Family Mobile Outreach. The local program was developed by Suzanne Edwards, Catholic Charities execu tive director, and will serve as a pilot program from the diocese. The program was developed over the past 18 months. A $100,000 donation from PCS was used to pur chase a 2009 International, 22-ft. refrigerated truck; a 2013 fork lift and a 2013 electric pallet jack. At capacity, the truck holds 20,000 pounds of food. The S&S Corporation donated $34,753 to the program and has been a partner in the food distribution pro grams for years. The Florida Gateway Food Bank is one of 17 food banks in the state. The Florida Gateway Food Bank is the smallest food bank in the state and the new program is endorsed by the Catholic Charities Board of Directors. Mike Williams, Potash Corp. White Springs public affairs manager, said Terry Baker, general manager of Potash Corp. White Springs, serves on the board of directors and when he saw the need in the number of people in the four-county service area, he decided to help Edwards in her outreach efforts. Although the Florida Gateway Food Bank had a truck, which was a leased vehicle, Williams said it was too small to effectively distribute food. We had people who could come to the food bank and sign up, but we had so many people in our communities who do not have transportation to go somewhere 20-30 miles away. Its a huge undertak ing for them. Williams said the truck assists people in need who dont have the transporta tion and its signage puts the word out about the program. Baker has been a strong supporter of the food bank and the out reach program, Williams said. Its what we do because were in the global business of helping nature providers feed the world. That mission really meshes well with Edwards mission of ensuring people have plenty to eat. Its a great fit for us. We love giving back to the com munity and we love doing those things that really hit our key missions, which are education and helping to feed people. Edwards said the truck was secured in April and later a high resolution design was added by Action Signs. The truck is ready to go now, but its first unveil ing in the mobile outreach program will be July 11 in Jennings at the Jennings Public Library, she said. Well roll up in the park ing lot and in less than two hours that 20,000 pounds of food is distributed, accounted for, paid for, signed for and out we go to the next location. Edwards said proceeds from the annual S&S golf tournament given to Catholic Charities will go towards maintenance of the truck as well as fuel costs and part-time driver pay. This is a wonderful opportunity for other cor porations and civic groups to get their logo on the truck and participate by doing a day of community service, she said. Its a good opportunity to have their logo on our truck as we drive around the local community as well as drive around the four counties during these out reach programs. Edwards said her operating budget did not include money for the new program. I was stepping out on a huge leap of faith, she said. The dioceses and archbishop is extremely interested in making this program work, so much to the fact they have asked our region (Jacksonville, St. Augustine and Gainesville) to be the model so they can rollout other programs. He totally agrees with the project and gave me the OK to take money out of our operating funds to do this. Scott Elkins, Florida Gateway Food Bank man ager, said last year 1.1 million pounds of food was distributed in Columbia, Hamilton, Suwannee and Union counties through local programs. Of the 1.1 million pounds of food, there was only a mainte nance fee on about half of the food. The maintenance is normally less than 19 cents a pound. He said there are 29 active agencies in the fourcounty service area. These are the kinds of programs that we like to work with, Williams said. Programs that sup port our communities and mesh with our mission of helping provide food and feeding people because we truly believe that no child should go to bed hungry. Programs that exhibit the strongest in ethical behav ior and sound stewardship. Were proud to be a part ner with Florida Gateway Food Bank.

Yet the numbers are even more dire for smaller stocks. Ninety percent of mid-cap stock funds trailed the popular S&P MidCap 400 Index, while the S&P SmallCap 600 Index did better than 83 percent of all small-cap funds. As bad as those numbers are, whats even worse is that many investors fall short of even the aver-age returns their funds produce. Thats because fund investors often jump in after a fund has generated a strong performance, and then get out at the worst possible time during or after a down period for the fund. It takes discipline to stay the course during bad times. If you dont have that discipline, its easier just to stick with an index fund and ride the ups and downs of the overall market. With actively managed funds charg-ing more in fees, its not surprising that most of them fail to match the returns of their index counterparts. As humbling as it may be to accept being average, using index funds for your core portfolio can still leave you far better off than trying to buck the odds and beat the market. K_\Dfkc\p=ffcKXb\ Portfolio-Driving StocksIn 2013s first quarter, Detroits Big Three accomplished something that hadnt been done in 20 years: All three gained market share. Ford (NYSE: F) and General Motors (NYSE: GM) are promising stocks to consider right now. Fords CEO Alan Mulallys One Ford vision is paying off big-time. The company is producing more profit than GM, off lower revenue, because its running so efficiently. The good news for GM is that its potential isnt as tapped as Fords right now. It expects to improve oper-ations and significantly boost profits and margins by mid-decade. Both companies are leaner and are having success with new mod-els. Consider that Ford cant make enough Fusions or Escapes to keep its inventories as high as it would like. GM is a little behind Ford in releasing new vehicles because it needed to shore up its financials first. Its plan-ning to refresh, replace or redesign almost 90 percent of its vehicles by 2016. GM also has a leg up on Ford when it comes to its luxury Cadillac line, which enjoys higher profit mar-gins than standard cars. Ford and GM investors are happy with improving profits, operations, market share and vehicles, and the second quarter is shaping up to be just as profitable as the first.

By RICHARD LARDNERAssociated PressWASHINGTON The Pentagon is spending more than three-quarters of a bil-lion dollars to buy Russian-made helicopters and other aircraft for an Afghan avi-ation unit that lacks the troops and expertise to operate and maintain the equipment, a government watchdog warned. The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction said in a report Friday these short-comings mean the heli-copters and fixed-wing aircraft destined for the Afghan Special Mission Wing could be left sitting on runways in Afghanistan, rather than supporting crit-ical missions, resulting in waste of U.S. funds. The report recommended put-ting the purchases on hold until the Afghans develop the capacity to support the aircraft. The findings are sure to reverberate on Capitol Hill, where there is stiff oppo-sition to the purchase of the Mi-17 helicopters from Rosoboronexport, the state-run Russian arms exporter that is a top weapons sup-plier to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The Pentagon announced June 17 that Rosoboronexport had been awarded a $554 million contract for 30 Mi-17s to be used by the Special Mission Wing, a move that came just days after the House approved a 2014 defense policy bill that included a prohibition on contracts with the Russian agency. The Senate Armed Services Committee included a simi-lar ban in its version of the bill. The defense policy bill for 2013 also barred the Pentagon from using funds from that fiscal year for contracts with Rosoboronexport. But the Pentagon said money from the 2012 fiscal year was being used for the Mi-17 acquisition, so the restric-tion does not apply. A Defense Department spokesman said there was an urgent, near-term need to buy the wing the Mi-17s, a multimission air-craft designed to operate at high altitudes and uniquely suited for the wing. Careful consideration of all the information available to the department confirms that it would be in the public interest to procure the Mi-17s needed for the (wing) from Rosoboronexport, Army Lt. Col. Jim Gregory said in a statement. In addition to the Mi-17s, the Pentagon is spending $218 million on 18 PC-12 cargo aircraft from the Sierra Nevada Corp. of Sparks, Nev., to allow the Special Mission Wing to perform counterterrorism and counternarcotics mis-sions, the report said. The special inspector general is recommending the purchase be suspend-ed until the wings staff-ing, recruiting and train-ing problems are resolved. Chief among them is final-izing a memorandum of understanding between the Afghan interior and defense ministries that would give the military control of the wing. But the document remains unsigned due largely to the interior min-istrys resistance to sur-rendering authority over the wing, according to the report. Michael Dumont, the deputy assistant defense secretary for Afghanistan, Pakistan and Central Asia, said in comments included in the report that delaying the purchase of the aircraft until the agreement was signed would unaccept-ably delay our efforts to develop the (wing) into a capable force. The wing was to have 806 personnel by mid-2015, but as of late January had just 180, according to the report. Filling out the wings ranks wont be easy, the report said, due to chal-lenges of finding Afghan recruits who are literate in their own language, com-petent in English and can pass the strict, 18to 20-month U.S. vetting process that includes eliminating candidates who have ties to criminal or insurgent activities. The flow of Afghan trainees from helicopter flight training at Fort Rucker, Ala., to more intense train-ing in the Czech Republic has been slow and uneven, ranging from a low of two up to eight trainees at a time, according to the spe-cial inspector general. The report blamed a lack of steady funding for the training from the Defense Department, failed back-ground checks for pro-spective pilots and flight engineers, and the Czech governments requirement that each Afghan trainee have a certificate signed by Afghan authorities. Compensation, especially for mechanics, is anoth-er barrier to recruitment because Afghans with a basic command of English are in high demand and can get higher pay else-where, the report said. LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, JUNE 30, 2013 3C3CBIZ Windows 8 gets a needed tweakBy RYAN NAKASHIMAAP Business WriterSAN FRANCISCO Microsoft is trying to reverse slumping PC sales and quiet growing criticism of its flagship operating system with the release of a revised version of Windows 8. On Wednesday, Microsoft made a preview version of Windows 8.1 available for download. It includes alter-ations meant to address consumer dissatisfaction with the operating system. Analysts believe users frustration with Windows 8 is partly to blame for the biggest drop in personal computer sales in nearly two decades. At a conference in San Francisco, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer acknowl-edged that the company pushed hard to get peo-ple to adopt a radical new tile-based Modern user interface in Windows 8. Microsoft is now back-ped-aling, making it easier to reach and use the older Desktop interface. Lets make it easier to start applications the way were used to, Ballmer told the audience of software developers. What we will show you today is a refined blend of our Desktop expe-rience and our Modern experience. Windows 8, released Oct. 26, was Microsofts answer to changing cus-tomer behavior and the rise of tablet computers. The operating system emphasizes touch controls over the mouse and the keyboard, which had been the main way people have interacted with their per-sonal computers since the 1980s. Microsoft and PC makers had been looking to Windows 8 to revive sales of personal computers, but some people have been put off by the radical makeover. Research firm IDC said the operating system actually slowed down the market. Although Microsoft says it has sold more than 100 million Windows 8 licenses so far, IDC said worldwide shipments of personal com-puters fell 14 percent in the first three months of this year, the worst since track-ing began in 1994. Windows 8 was also supposed to make Microsoft more competitive in the growing market for tablet computers. But Windows tablets had less than a 4 percent market share in the first quarter, compared with 57 percent for Android and 40 percent for Apples iPad. Among the changes present in Windows 8.1, users will be able to boot up in Desktop mode. There, theyll find a button that resembles the old Start but-ton. It wont take users to the old Start menu, but to the new Modern Windows 8 start screen. Still, the reintroduction of the familiar button may make it easi-er for longtime Windows users to get accustomed to the changes. A common complaint about Windows 8 is that it hides features and functions, and replac-es buttons with gestures and invisible click zones that have to be memo-rized. Now, a single swipe up from the Modern start screen brings up all pro-grams, even those that are seldom used. It addresses a lot of the issues that people that I talk to had about Windows 8, said Charles Madison, a software developer from New York. Other new features of Windows 8.1 include more options to use multiple apps. People will be able to determine how much of the screen each app takes while showing up to four differ-ent programs, rather than just two. The update will also offer more integrated search results, showing users previews of websites, apps and documents that are on the device, all at once. Microsoft also touted a broadening array of appli-cations specifically writ-ten for Windows 8, among them one from Facebook. Frank Gillett, an analyst with research firm Forrester, said that with 8.1, Microsoft is doing a better job of uniting the Desktop and Modern screens, but the changes dont run deep. ASSOCIATED PRESSMicrosoft store employee Judy Thao gives a search demon stration on a Fujitsu tablet at a Microsoft event in San Franc isco Wednesday.

LIFE Sunday, June 30, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D W e arrived at St. Marks Square or Piazza San Marco in Venice, Italy, and exited the water taxi. In addition to some sightseeing, we were there to take a true gondo-la ride. There were vendors of all types lining the street where we got off. And as you make the turn into the piazza, the vast sizes of the buildings that outline the square overwhelm you especially the Basilica di San Marco. The archi-tecture shows amazing detail and stonework, along with many sculptures. They were definitely sights worth seeing. There were gondolas lined up at all of the docks, but first we walked through some of the small streets to the Ponte di Rialto. This is the famous Rialto Bridge that crosses over the Grand Canal. After a few Kodak moments, we decided to take our gondola ride from there back to St. Marks Square. A gondola is a traditional, flat-bottomed Venetian row boat, perfect for travel-ing through the Venetian lagoon. It used to be the primary mode of transpor-tation throughout the city, but is now mostly used to carry tourists for a flat fee. In our case, 150 euros (which at the time was equivalent to $195) for four people pretty pricey for a bucket-list item. My only other experience on a gondola was the modern attraction at the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas, where you ride through the shopping areas and outside the main entrance of the hotel. Not exactly the same. This experience was the real deal and very educational, as we learned about some of the history of Venice. We took some of the little canals off of the Grand Canal and got into the heart of the city. We saw where Marco Polo once lived as well as the Italian playboy, Casanova. We also learned that Venice is made up of 120 islands connected by 420 bridges, approximately, situated on the Venetian lagoon. Speaking of bridges, we had to kiss as we went under the bridges. Our gondolier was a fourth-generation gondolier and was very knowledge-able. He told us about the buildings, homes, church-es, cathedrals. Everything that we saw was all so old some by thousands of years. Nothing new is allowed and if it needs repair or replacement, it must be done according to its original architecture and materials. Everything was originally built on wooden stilts and the water levels also fluctuate with the tides and you can see old water Gondola riding through Venice Story ideas?ContactRobert BridgesEditor754firstname.lastname@example.org Lake City Reporter1DLIFE FireworksStart9:20 p.m. PresentersEntertainment The Best Fireworks Display in North Florida Thursday, July 4, 2013 Anderson Columbia Advanced DisposalBaya PharmacyCMSColumbia Bank Columbia County Tourist Development CouncilComfort Inn First Federal Bank of FloridaHampton InnHeritage Bank of the South Lake City AdvertiserLifeguard Ambulance ServiceMeridian Behavioral Healthcare New Millennium Ole Times Country Buet People's State Bank Potash CorporationRountree MooreS&SSav A Lot Texas RoadhouseTIMCOThe Law Oce of Travis Koon, PLLCVyStarWal MartCo-Sponsors Columbia County Fairgrounds Sponsored byStop N GoBoard of CountyCommissioners City of Lake City Sponsored by Hosted by Title Sponsor Lake City ReporterExpanded kids area to includes: 6 bounce houses, 4 water slides,and a slip n slide unit!

By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comB eating illnesses and ignoring skip days, the Mathis family continued its tradition of perfect atten-dance when Columbia High School senior class president Danielle Mathis accepted her diploma in May. In total, the family boasts 48 years of never missing a school day. Once we got started, it would have been a shame to stop, Danielle Mathis, 18, said. I felt like it was such a huge accomplish-ment, except all I got was a certificate. This is bigger than A-honor roll. Honor roll starts in high school or middle school, but perfect attendance starts in kindergarten. Mary Kay Mathis encouraged her children to attend school, but never once forced them. With a father in the chi-ropractic business, it was easy for the three girls and one boy to practice preventative medicine. And according to Mary Kay Mathis, the secret to their success was a struc-tured bedtime and lots of rest. Without proper rest, the body gets worn down, she said On Monday, Mary Kay Mathis took a pic-ture of her three girls Stephanie, Katherine and Danielle to the school district to place on the Wall of Fame. This is something they really did on their own, she said. I dont have perfect attendance. Were not all national honor society, were not all student athletes, were not all perfect, but if there was some kind of award No excuses neededCOURTESY MARY KAY MATHIS The Mathis family poses at the Columbia High School Grad uation in May, where Danielle Mathis finished her acade mic career with perfect attendance. Between the three girls Da nielle, Katherine and Stephanie Mathis they have a perfe ct record of attendance for 39 combined years. Pictured frrom left are Matthew, Mary Kay, Danielle, Darrel, Stephanie and Katherine Mathis. Siblings record 48 years of no missed school. FAMILY TRADITION Hydrangeas add color all summerA re you a gar-dener who is always looking for plants to add color to a typically green summer landscape? The French hydrangea may be just the right plant to color up your shady garden with blooms that go on for weeks and weeks. Hydrangeas, which have graced southern landscapes for many years, have earned the distinc-tion of being heirloom plants. These big-leaf French hydrangeas have been gaining astounding popularity recently. And for good reason. Many new French hydrangea cultivars are re-bloomers that produce large pink, blue or white flowers from spring through fall. They grow in the shade, have few pests and maintain a nice mounded shape with little pruning. After establish-ment, they are moderately drought tolerant. The ability to change the bloom color of many of these plants is what attracts many avid gardeners to grow French hydrangeas. Hydrangea gardeners take pride in the color intensities they can tease from their blooms. Desired bloom colors are sometimes easier to achieve if the plant is grown in a patio container instead of in the ground. If this sounds like fun, read more at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ep330 Most gardeners who grow French hydrangeas know that soil pH (the degree of acidity or alka-linity) affects the color of the flower. The general assumption is that acidic soil produces blue flowers and alkaline soil makes pink blooms. But it isnt quite that simple. Consider these other major factors if your flowers arent produc-ing the colors you want. Aluminum is one factor, and this is why gardeners use aluminum sulphate to blue up their blue hydran-gea plants. Plant roots can only absorb the aluminum, however, if the soil is acidic. Another factor is the pres-ence of a certain flower pigment. Blue flowers develop when there are both alu-minum and the pigment present in the flower cells. The flowers will be pink if the plant has the pigment but no aluminum. If the hydrangea cultivar has no pigment, the flower will be predominantly white, with or without aluminum.

By LEANNE ITALIE Associated Press NEW YORK In these hyperconnected, over-shared times dwell two kinds of people: those preoccupied with taking and uploading photos of themselves and those who have never heard of the selfie. The raunchy, goofy, poignant, sexy or drunken self-portrait has been a common sight since phone camera met social media. Now, nearly a decade since the armextended or in-the-mirror photos became a mainstay of MySpace duck face or otherwise self ies are a pastime across genera tions and cultures. Justin Bieber puts up plenty with his shirt off and Rihanna poses for sultry snaps, but a beaming Hillary Clinton recent ly took a turn with daughter Chelsea, who tweeted their happy first attempt with the hashtag #ProudDaughter. Two other famous daughters, Sasha and Malia Obama, self ied at dads second inauguration, pulling faces in front of a smart phone. And Japanese astronaut Aki Hoshide earned a spot in the Selfie Hall of Fame with a striking, other-worldly shot, arms extended as reflected in his hel met outside the International Space Station last year. It just comes so naturally after a point, said Elizabeth Zamora, a 24-year-old marketing account coordinator in Dallas who has taken hundreds of selfies since she got her first iPhone two years ago, with the front-facing camera that has become the selfie gold standard. You just take it and you dont even realize it and then youre sharing it with all your friends, she said. I try not to go crazy. If were not taking them, were certainly looking, regardless of whether we know what theyre called. Were lurking on the self ies of our teens, enjoying the hijinx of co-workers and friends and mooning over celebrities, who have fast learned the market ing value and scandalous dan gers of capturing their more intimate, unpolished selves. The practice of freezing and sharing our thinnest slices of life has become so popular that the granddaddy of dictionaries, the Oxford, is monitoring the term selfie as a possible addition. Time magazine included the selfie in its Top 10 buzzwords of 2012 (at No. 9) and New York magazines The Cut blog declared in April: Ugly Is the New Pretty: How Unattractive Selfies Took Over the Internet. On Instagram alone, theres #selfiesunday, along with related tags where millions of selfies land daily. Beverly Hills, Calif., psychia trist Carole Lieberman sees nar cissism with a capital N. The rise of the selfie is a perfect metaphor for our increasingly narcissistic culture. Were desperately crying out: Look at me! marks from previous flood ing. I had watched a docu mentary about gondoliers, and they have to undergo extensive training. They are controlled by a guild, which issues a limited number of licenses, grant ed after periods of training and apprenticeship and a major comprehensive exam, which tests knowl edge of Venetian history and landmarks, foreign language skills and practical skills which they certainly needed to navigate the Grand Canal when you have large, motorized boats creating waves that you think will roll you right over. This was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experi ence and worth every penny. We only wished we had more time to explore the many areas of Venice, but it started to rain and theres nowhere to hide in a city built on water with mostly side walk cafs. 2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JUNE 30, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 2DLIFE HAPPENINGS Ivesters celebrate 66th wedding anniversary Charlton and Alice Ivester, of Lake City, celebrated their 66th wedding anniver sary on Friday, June 21, 2013.

Ledger Warren Williams PERFECT: Siblings dont miss school Continued From Page 1D out there, I really think there could be perfect attendance or at least higher attendance rates. The oldest Mathis, Stephanie, began the tradition when she gradu ated in 2009. She received $200 from then-School Superintendent Sam Markham, but since then her sisters have only got ten the satisfaction of con tinuing the tradition. When she started school, she never knew she would go 13 years without missing a day. It just happened day by day. And when Stephanie Mathis graduated elemen tary school with perfect attendance, it just stuck. If you dont study right in high school, you wont study right in college, she said. If you dont go to school in high school, you wont go to school in college. Its the same. Danielle Mathis never considered not going to school, and neither did her sisters. It was just something that you did, they all agreed. It just kind of hap pened, Katherine Mathis, 19, said. It would happen one year, then another, and then we just kept going I never found a reason to miss school. Until high school, Danielle Mathis added, then it got hard to watch her friends go to the beach during the school day. But inspired by her sisters, Danielle Mathis said she felt like she didnt miss anything. All three girls gradu ated in the top 10 percent of their class, and they all believe attending school every day played a part in their grades. Now, they are all on to bigger and better things. Stephanie Mathis will graduate from the University of West Florida in December with a degree in environmen tal studies. Katherine Mathis will soon be attending Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, Tenn., and Danielle Mathis will study hospitality at the University of Central Florida. Now, Matthew Mathis, 14, strives to continue the tradition. He will enter high school this year, and expressed doubts to his mother Thursday about making it another four more years. He already has nine perfect years under his belt. No pressure, Matthew, Stephanie Mathis said. Bill would honor Buffalo Soldiers By TRACIE CONE Associated Press SACRAMENTO, Calif. In the decades after the Civil War, the nations first black Army regiments guarded Yosemite and Sequoia national parks against poaching and timber thefts, a role that in hindsight made them some of the United States first park rangers. Now as the National Park Service pre pares for its 100th anniversary in 2016, there is a move in Congress to formal ly recognize the role of these Buffalo Soldiers, who set aside their guns to build the first trail to the top of Mt. Whitney and the first wagon road into the Giant Forest. On Monday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill by Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San Francisco, allowing the federal government to study cre ation of a national historic trail along the 280-mile route the soldiers traveled between The Presidio in San Francisco, where they were stationed, and the Sierra Nevada they patrolled. This relates to a bigger goal we have and that is to celebrate the centennial by diversifying our national parks so that they reflect all of our cultural heritages, said Ron Sundergill, senior regional direc tor for the National Parks Conservation Association, the organization that has pushed for the Buffalo Soldiers to be honored.

By BRIAN WITTEAssociated PressVERMILION CLIFFS NATIONAL MONUMENT, Ariz. Small wooden balls click rap-idly in a whirling bingo basket, as 78 hikers wait to see if their num-bers will roll out to win one of 10 permits to visit a rock formation known as The Wave. Some had been contemplating the hike for years. Only 20 people are allowed to visit The Wave each day, with 10 chosen in an online lottery four months in advance and the other 10 picked in this daily 9 a.m. lottery. The U.S. Bureau of Land Management lim-its access to protect The Waves delicate red sandstone formation and to prevent overcrowding at the designated wilderness site. Fortunately or unfortunately, The Wave has kind of caught on as a fun hike, Kathy Spellman, a visitor information assistant with the BLM, explained to the room of hopeful hikers in May, where cheers went up as the numbers were announced. The hike out is very nice, she said. Its 6 miles (9.6 kilometers) round-trip, so its not too long, not too short. You can go in there and its not a marked trail. The trees dont have names on them. There are not little rocks along the edges of the trail, so you can feel like youre in the middle of nowhere. The Waves dramatically flowing contours in bright orange, red, pink and yellow, are a prized image among landscape photog-raphers, who can be seen lug-ging tripods across the desert wilderness. The fiery swirls have been emblazoned on post-cards, posters, maps and com-puter screensavers. Its just become such a ubiquitous, iconic photo, said Kevin Wright, monument man-ager of Vermilion Cliffs National Monument, where The Wave is located in the Arizona backcoun-try near the Utah border. Among people that love the outdoors and have these bucket lists, I think its become something to check off their list. About a third of visitors are from other countries, particularly Germany, with an upswing from Japan and China in recent years, according to Wright. Last year, 48,264 people applied to visit The Wave, said Spellman, who works at the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument Visitor Center in Kanab, Utah, where the drawing is held for hikes that take place the next day. Thats compared to 7,300 permits awarded in a year, based on the 20 allowed each day. To reach The Wave, lottery win-ners drive the 46 miles rom the drawing site in Kanab to the trailhead. The colorful, contoured landscape at Vermilion Cliffs is more than just something to marvel at; its how you find The Wave. Permits come with a map and directions that include compass points. The map also has 12 photographs of key navigational points with dotted lines showing the way with sandstone ridges and other stony landmarks. Six photos capture main points on the way; six illustrate the way back. Each photo also has writ-ten directions to help get from an area shown in one photo to the next. Hikers are warned about sun and heat. At least a gallon of water per person is recommended, as well as salty snacks and sunscreen. If youre not handy with a compass, the photographs alone may not be enough to navi-gate the unmarked way. Some get lost, either on the way or when trying to return. The area is remote, so losing your way can lead to an unexpected night on the rocks. One photographer who stayed to take a picture of The Wave at sunset got lost in the dark and died after falling into a slot canyon. Guides can be hired to provide a ride in a four-wheel drive vehicle across the 8 miles (13 kilometers) of dirt road that leads to the start of the hike. First-timers can also hire guides to accompany them on the trail to make sure they wont get lost. The BLM has a list of regis-tered guides who dont need an additional permit to accompany permitted hikers. An early start is a good way to get ahead of the heat. A dirt footpath leads to a washed out stream for the first half-mile (nearly 1 kilometer) of the trip. Soon, the landscape opens up into a vast area of reddish rock, dotted with green sage bushes. About two-thirds of the trip is in Utah before hikers cross over the Arizona border. Sandstone buttes and huge mesas surround the area through-out the richly colored geological upheaval. The work of powerful tectonic force through the ages is on full display. Panoramas full of jagged red rock project out of the sand. Beyond them, tower-ing hills of rosy stone loom in the backdrop. Some may find the scenery along the way as stunning as the destination. Small, swiftly moving lizards put on vigorous territorial push-up displays, urging hikers to move along, but thats about the only thing that disturbs the serenity except for the occasion-al small group of hikers. Once you are there, its easy to appreciate the 20-hiker daily limit.

CASSIDYAssociated PressATLANTA The video game Jacob Asofsky is creating is simple: Someone who is trying to take over the world and you try to stop them. The 12-year-old from Florida is spending two weeks at a summer camp in a program that teaches pro-gramming skills to young people. Its about having fun, but it also gives them the tools to be able to do this at home because they dont have this in school, said Taylor Jones, director of the iD Tech Camp at Atlantas Emory University. So-called coding camps for children are becoming more popular amid a growing effort to expand access to computer programming and inspire more youths to seek com-puter science degrees and careers in technology. Their rise underscores a seeming mismatch in the U.S. econo-my: people like Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Tumblr founder David Karp illustrate the opportuni-ties programming skills can create, yet universities are not graduating enough code-savvy students to meet employers demands. The iD Tech Camps, which have grown from 200 students in 1999 to 28,000 enrolled this year in courses at dozens of locations nationwide, use interest in gaming to build bridg-es to computer programming and hopefully careers in Web developing, film animation and app creation for smart phones. Courses start at $829 for a one-week course during the day with overnight students paying $1,348. On a recent weekday, Asofsky was attending an iD Tech Camp on the campus with some 95 other youths under the age of 17. He was using the gaming software RPG Maker to create a video game in which the main character travels around the world, buys animals and armor and interacts with others along the way. I have to say the interface of actually making a game is just as fun as playing a game, Asofsky said. Its a lot like playing a game inside a game. Early courses for children starting at age 7 use the photo and illustration software Adobe Photoshop and the gaming software Multimedia Fusion to create a simple arcade-style game. We sit down and talk about what makes games fun, said instructor Melissa Andrews, who was working with the youngest group of campers. We get it down to the basics so they can make their own game. Courses for older children include designing apps, creating sophisticat-ed, 3-D, first-person shooter games using the Unreal Developers Kit also known as UDK and learn-ing programming languages like Java and C++. The idea is to build self-confidence and spark interest in learning how computers work, all to perhaps plant the seed of a future career in programming. There will be 1.4 million computing jobs by 2020 but only 400,000 com-puter science students by that time, according to Code.org, a nonprofit with a list of whos who in the tech world on its advisory board includ-ing Twitter creator Jack Dorsey and Dropbox CEO Drew Houston. And the jobs pay well. The median annual wage for a computer pro-grammer, for instance, was $71,380 in 2010, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Meanwhile, jobs for network and computer systems administrators are growing at double the national average, with a median annual salary of $69,160. Yet high schools and universities seem to be out of step with the job market. Nine out of 10 high schools dont offer computer programming classes and the number of students graduating from college with a com-puter science degree is down from a decade ago, according to Code.org. Earlier this year, President Barack Obama said programming should be a required course in high school, similar to foreign languages. Given how pervasive computers and the Internet is now and how integral it is into our economy and how fascinated kids are with it, I want to make sure they know how to actually produce stuff using com-puters and not just simply consume stuff, Obama said during a Google+ Hangout. Yale Oseroffs high school back in Virginia doesnt offer programming classes. The 17-year-old is spending his fourth year at an iD Tech Camp working through C++, a popular pro-gramming language used for sys-tems and application software. NEW YORK Twinkies arent the only cakes get-ting ready for a comeback so are Drakes cakes, which include Devil Dogs, Funny Bones and Yodels. After Hostess Brands Inc. went out of business last year, the company sold off its brands in chunks to a variety of buyers. Many of the most famous cakes such as Twinkies, CupCakes and Donettes were purchased by a pair of investment firms that say they plan to have them back on shelves by July 15. Drakes cakes, meanwhile, were snapped up by longtime Hostess rival McKee Foods, which makes Little Debbie snacks. McKee said in an email Monday that Drakes cakes should be back by late summer/early fall. The company says it will start with a selection of Drakes products and see whether to bring back more prod-ucts after that. It did not say which products it will roll out first or whether all Drakes cakes would eventually return to shelves. Notably, McKee Foods has gone head-to-head with Hostess on a variety of products. Its Cloud Cakes for example, bear a striking resemblance to Twinkies. And now it owns Drakes Devil Dogs and Yodels, which look a lot like its Little Debbie Devil Cremes and Swiss Rolls, respective-ly. But McKee says it isnt necessarily phasing out products that seem similar to each other. Similar is just that similar, not the same, McKee spokesman Mike Gloekler wrote in an email. Gloekler said McKee Foods is using its own bak-ing plants to make Drakes cakes but that no changes will be made to the recipes to streamline production. He said the company will make Drakes exactly to the recipes we received in the acquisition. Little Debbie cakes tend to be less expensive than Hostess cakes. But Gloekker declined to say detail the pricing plan for the relaunch of Drakes. A spokesman for Flowers Foods, Keith Hancock, said the company is still waiting for final approval from the Department of Justice for its purchase of Wonder and other breads.

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been mar-ried for eight years. When we married, we both drank and smoked. My husband quit smoking five years ago, and I have continued to smoke off and on. If he catches me with a ciga-rette it becomes an argu-ment, and its either I quit or were done! I love my husband, but I find it difficult to be hon-est about this. I dont see the big deal if I smoke a cigarette. He sometimes makes me feel like a teenager hiding it from my parents! Any advice? -CLOSET SMOKER IN WISCONSIN DEAR SMOKER: Surely you know that smoking isnt good for you, and it upsets your husband because he loves you. This is less about a contest of wills than the fact that you are addicted to nicotine and cant stop using. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My mom has no respect for my privacy. When something happens in my life, she shares it with all my rela-tives despite my repeatedly having asked her not to. She has a website where she rehashes nearly every moment of my life spent with my family and posts all of my pictures. When I mention to her that I would like my privacy respected, she gets upset and calls me ridiculous. I agree that Im probably demanding more privacy than normal, but I dont feel she has a right to disseminate informa-tion about me if I ask her not to. How can I get her to stop? -WANTS MY PRIVACY DEAR WANTS YOUR PRIVACY: Your mother may be posting your pic-tures and details of your life because she has been doing it for years. If youre a teenager, please realize that your mom may do this because shes proud of you. However, if you are an adult and no longer live under her roof, a way to get her to pull back, if not stop completely, would be to share less information with her. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: When my mother wasnt able to sell her white milk-glass items in a rummage sale, I asked if I could please have them to display in an antique china cabinet. My husband and I have admired the pieces, and I love knowing that they were once my mothers. My brother, who has never had any interest in vintage items and has a home that looks like a hoarder lives there, wants one of the pieces because of an old picture of him near the piece. I guess he must be feeling nostalgic. Mother feels I should give it to him since he wants it. I am torn as to why I must part with the piece to just be placed in a box -or worse. We enjoy all of the pieces and Im feel-ing selfish. What should I do? -APPRECIATES ANYTHING VINTAGE DEAR A.A.V.: Listen to your mother. The milk glass was hers to begin with. It wont hurt you to let that one piece go, and the reason your brother would like to have it seems valid. Surely family harmo-ny is as important to you as your glass collection. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Being responsible will improve your day. The more you do to keep the peace and to encourage those you love, the more you will get in return. Emotional unpredictability will be your enemy, and keeping busy will be your salvation. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Say nothing until you feel secure with the pros-pects turning out the way you plan. A secret encoun-ter with someone will not lead to the good fortune you had hoped for. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Fickle fun will not lead to a happy ending. You are best to be upfront and hon-est about your intentions. Helping someone is fine, but having ulterior motives is not. Love is on the rise and should be handled with courtesy. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Emotional issues will cause you grief if you arent prepared to deal with the facts and hide your inner thoughts. Taking a serious approach to whatever needs to be done will make it easier to put disruptions behind you and move on. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Youll be anxious to make a move, but first clear the way so you dont encoun-ter setbacks. Not every-one will agree with you, and a persuasive tactful approach will be neces-sary. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Think before you make any changes to your security. Impulsive spend-ing or investing will be questionable as the day progresses. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Rethink your strategy regarding something that has the potential to affect your reputation or position. Do what you can to engage in activities that will bring you closer to the person or people who can help influ-ence your future. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Change your location, improve your property or invest in an idea you have. You can get ahead if you promote, present and net-work. An older friend or parent will appreciate your help. A physical change will enhance your love life. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may think you have a profitable idea, but before you jump in and spend your hard-earned cash, you should do more research. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Accept the inevita-ble, but dont be the one to initiate change. Take time to observe what everyone else does and says and you will make a wiser choice. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Try something new. Get involved in activi-ties that challenge you physically, and encourage relationships with people trying to make the same improvements you are try-ing to achieve. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A hobby may turn into a profitable endeavor. You can secure your finances if you downsize or make cre-ative money maneuvers. A contract or settlement appears to be taking an unusual but favorable turn. Collect money owed and pay off debts. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Mustard variety5 Go beyond9 Tired14 Upper-tier academics 18 Rescue mission, briefly 19 Get off the highway20 In current times21 Put in an appearance22 Comic strip about the Pattersonfamily 25 Food in the Bible26 Caspian Sea feeder27 Des ___, Iowa28 Repudiates29 Checkpoint needs31 Periodic payments32 Star33 Like birds of prey34 Coffee containers*LYHRQHVDGGUHVV"37 Baseball card stat40 SeaWorld performers 41 Mortarboard tosser5HDOO\XVHIXO HQJLQHRIFKLOGUHQVERRNV 43 Wilson of Hollywood :KDWQRQVHQVH 45 #1 on the American )LOP,QVWLWXWHV*UHDWHVW0RYLH0XVLFDOVOLVW 47 Tech media Web site founded in 1994 48 John at a piano49 Basis of some ticket discounts 50 Patient mover&RPSXWHUXVHUV shortcut 52 Viewed with contempt :KDWVH[SHFWHG55 Confers56 Sentence unit57 Like nougat7RRWRQHVRZQ horn 60 Where Arab Bank is headquartered >*RQHLQVWDQWO\@63 Home of Hannibal67 Be relevant to68 Withdraw70 Over the hill71 Former Indiana senator Bayh 72 Gas in a vacuum tube 73 German-born Emmy winner of 1960sTV 75 Not just a tiff76 Untrustworthy sort77 Breaking GHYHORSPHQWV" 5HJUHWVDQG others ([DFWO\ULJKW80 Wrangler rival81 Went (for)82 Gulf war missile&RPSDQ\RIWZR"84 Makes a go of it86 Really impresses87 Palmed off88 Hold the fort, say90 Holders of addl. thoughts ([LVWHQWLDODQ[LHW\93 Welcome sight after a flood 94 Various things99 Tweeters100 Unalaska native101 Beam from one end to the other 102 Patriarch who lived 950 years 103 Horrorful104 Tired105 Sideways106 French or Italian breadDown 1 Cool, in hip-hop slang 2 English war poet Gurney 3 Hardly a slow poke4 1942 Cary Grant comedy %HVLHJHUVERPE6 Rink jumps'HDURQH8 What a gutter may lead to 9 Made-up alibis10 Stops on a whistlestop tour 11 Love12 Subject of many a Burns ballad 13 Size up14 Something to grow out of 15 Elocution phrase16 Musical duo Brooks & ___ 17 They have springs21 All ___23 Fruit growers24 Setting up28 Hold for questioning 29 Early release30 One of the authors in the gameAuthors 32 Procter & Gamble soap 'UDQNWRH[FHVV34 Pressed35 Award won by Alice Munro and StephenKing 36 Pulitzer-winning composer Ned 38 Some drafts.UDNDXHUVBBBWKH :LOG 41 Zesty staple of Asian cuisine 42 Martial-arts move45 Old Nick46 Melodious47 Initiates a conflict 51 Entree, often3OD\ZULJKW2&DVH\55 Line on a map57 Recoiled fearfully58 Catchy parts of pop songs 59 Farm machines60 Hard-to-reach nest61 Classic name in crossword puzzles 62 Puerto Rican port 63 Got through difficulties 64 Get retribution for65 Guesstimated(ZRNVKRPHLQ 6WDU:DUV 6RFLDOLWHVSDUW\68 Green ___69 Like some stores of years gone by 73 Erased, as a tape74 Eggplant casserole /LIWVDILQJHU"79 Soft shade82 Betraying nervousness, in away 83 How utility bills are usually paid 6HWSUHFHGHU"86 1981 comedy or its 2011 remake 87 Volume control on a soundboard 88 Small dollops6SDPDORWZULWHU Idle 90 Untidy stack91 Out of port94 Dtente95 State-of-the-art96 Biblical pronoun97 Shucked item98 Density symbol, in physics No. 0623 RELEASE DATE: 6/30/2013 TWO-BY-FOURS By Patrick Berry / Edited by Will Shor tz For any three answers,call from a touch-tonephone: 1-900-285-5656,$1.49 each minute; or,with a credit card, 1-800-814-5554. 1234567891011121314151617181920 21 222324 25 2627 28 2930 31 32 33 343536373839 40 4142 43 444546 47 484950 51 5253 5455 56575859 606162 63646566 67 68697071 7273 7475 7677 7879 8081 8283 8485 8687 8889 9091 92 93 94 95969798 99 100 101102 103 104 105106 Wifes refusal to quit smoking begins to cloud her marriage r rn rr rr rr r r r r rr rn Answers to last Sundays Crossword.
