By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comFlorida lawmakers allocated $10 million to springs protection for the 2013-14 fiscal year, but according to local scientists and activists, it isnt enough. Floridas freshwater springs are dying. White Springs dried up, and the Ichetucknee River snakes through Floridas rural country-side, contaminated by nitrates and other pollutants. Silver Springs, once clear, has become matted with algae. Ten million dollars sounds like a lot of money. But when you see the needs of our local springs, its not going to go very far, said Chris Bird, director of the Alachua County Environmental Protection Department. You could easily spend all that money on trying to help the Ichetucknee, and not be done But its important to understand that it is a step in the right direction. The Suwannee River Water Management District approached the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce, The Ichetucknee Partnership and Columbia County Commissioners about supporting a water quality project for the Ichetucknee. The chamber par-ticipated in the campaign by draft-ing a letter to send to the state Department of Environmental Protection, which controls the purse strings. Dr. Anne Shortelle, direc-tor of the water management dis-trict, said her dis-trict aims to get part of the $10 million to help renovate a Lake City spray field that sits inside the Ichetucknee Trace. What were proposing, if we get the money, is to change that sprayfield into wetland treat-ment, she said.

According to the Columbia County Sheriffs Office, the Columbia County Fire Department and CCSO arrived at 3198 SW Cypress Lake Road at about 4 a.m. to find a white, four-door Chevrolet pickup on fire near the road. After the fire was extinguished, deputies discovered a single male occupant, Jason Lang, deceased in the truck. Lang, 36, was a lifelong resident of Lake City. According to his obitu-ary, he graduated from Columbia High School in 1994, attended Anderson College in South Carolina in 2000 and was working at PCS in White Springs. He formerly was employed as a teacher at Richardson Middle School. At this time, there is no indication of foul play, said Sgt. Ed Seifert, CCSO pub-lic information officer. The death is being investigated as accidental by detectives from CCSO and the state Fire Marshals Office. An autopsy was conducted Friday, and the results will be made available once Lake City man discovered dead after fire put out.

PANAMA CITY Flooding prompted road and waterway closures throughout the rainsoaked Florida Panhandle on Friday. Emergency officials from Pensacola to Panama City encouraged residents to stay off water-clogged roads following days of heavy rain. Forecasters called for more rain through the next several days. In Walton County, a dike break caused the U.S. Coast Guard to close a four-mile section of the Intracoastal Waterway between Choctawatchee Bay and West Bay late Thursday. Coast Guard officials say they received a call from boaters Thursday afternoon reporting that the dike had given way at mile marker 263 between Panama City and Destin. The Coast Guard said Friday afternoon that the Intercostal Waterway between mile marker 262 to mile marker 266 in Walton County would remain closed until work ers could take care of the broken dike. The Walton County Commission held a special meeting Friday morning to declare a state of emer gency because of flooding throughout that area. Bay County officials said Friday that roadways there were open, after some closings a day earlier. The county has set up a Red Cross shelter in anticipa tion of more flooding. Thunderstorms caused periodic power outages in the Pensacola area on Friday and many down town roads had standing water. The National Park Service closed Fort Pickens Road, a scenic roadway that runs through Gulf Islands National Seashore on the East Side of Pensacola Beach and provides the only access to a popular RV campground. In previous flooding, the park service drew the ire of campers by forc ing them to evacuate the campground. On Friday, the park service said campers who are already set up at the campground and those who have exist ing reservations would be allowed access to the park. Park officials said the road would be closed to other visitors. 3 men charged in theft of statue PALATKA Three men have been charged with the theft of a giant purple chicken statue. News reports said the men took the 9-foot, 600pound aluminum chicken from a home in Putnam County on Tuesday. They hooked it to a Chevrolet truck and dragged it a mile down the road. The owner of the bird told deputies he saw one of the thieves mount the bird and ride it. The men then unhooked the statue and fled. Detectives located them the next day. All three suspects are between the ages of 18 and 21 and have been charged with grand theft. The chicken has been returned to its rightful owner, but suffered a lacerated leg, cracked claw and scarring on its side. Fireworks dispute lands man in jail GAINESVILLE Police say a 62-year-old Gainesville man is in jail following a dispute with neighbors over Fourth of July fireworks. Authorities say Marc Levy yelled at his neigh bors Thursday night over their use of fireworks. Neighbors told police Levy went into his apart ment and returned with an AR-15-style airsoft rifle. Police say Levy waved the gun in the air, then pointed it at two adults and a 2-year-old child. When Officer Crystal Castor arrived, she found Levy sitting on his front porch with his arms behind his back. She ordered him to show his hands several times before he complied. He remained in jail with out bail Friday morning, charged with aggravated assault, child abuse and resisting an officer. Boy nearly drowns during fireworks DAYTONA BEACH SHORES A 3-year-old child nearly drowned in the Atlantic Ocean while his family watched fireworks near Daytona Beach. Volusia County Beach Safety Ocean Rescue spokeswoman Tammy Marris told the Daytona Beach News-Journal a bystander spotted the child in the surf Thursday night during the July 4th fireworks display. The boy was unrespon sive when he was found, but rescue crews revived him. Marris says the child was breathing and con scious when he was taken to Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach. Marris says the family had come to the beach to watch the fireworks and noticed the child missing a short time later. Dog trapped by car axle DANIA BEACH South Florida firefight ers came to the rescue of a dog that traveled 5 miles while trapped under the hood of a car. The Broward Sheriffs Office says firefighters were called Thursday afternoon to Dania Beach to free the dog. The animal had been trapped between the cars axle and steering mechanism. A sheriffs office spokes man says the dog suffered no injuries, even though it had been driven roughly 5 miles from Hallandale Beach. It wasnt immediately clear how the dog became trapped.

FBI agents and local sheriffs deputies arrested Thomas George Paculis, 62, of Newfield, N.Y., Friday morning. A criminal complaint filed Wednesday in federal court in Savannah, Ga., charges him with extortion. The complaint says Paculis was threatening to go to the media with statements made by Deen unless the former Food Network star gave him $250,000. The complaint does not specify what was in the statements Paculis claimed were made by Deen. Paculis had his initial court appearance Friday in New York and was released on bond, said FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett in Atlanta.

Daina Greene, MD Marlene Summers, CNM 934 NE Lake DeSoto Circle, Lake City, FL(Next to Courthouse) Zimmerman prosecution rests case By KYLE HIGHTOWER andMIKE SCHNEIDERAssociated PressSANFORD Jurors in the George Zimmerman trial went into their weekend with a lot of courtroom drama and conflicting testimony to digest. Fridays action-packed session saw the prosecution rest its case, and the judge reject a defense request to acquit Zimmerman of second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last year. The mothers of both Martin and Zimmerman listened to the same 911 recording of someone screaming for help, and each said she was convinced the voice was that of her own son. The question of whose voice is on the recording could be crucial to the jury in deciding who was the aggres-sor in the confrontation between the neighborhood watch volunteer and the teenager. I heard my son screaming, Martins mother, Sybrina Fulton, said firmly after she was played a record-ing in which distant, high-pitched wails could be heard in the background as a Zimmerman neighbor asked a dispatcher to send police. Moments later on the call, there was a gunshot and the crying stopped. Gladys Zimmerman, though, testified she recognized the voice all too well: My son. Asked how she could be certain, she said: Because its my son. Martins half brother, 22-yearold Jahvaris Fulton, testified that the cries came from the teen. And Zimmermans uncle, Jose Meza, said he knew it was Zimmermans voice from the moment I heard it. ... I thought, that is George. After Fridays session was over, defense attorney Mark OMara told reporters there will be a lot of other witnesses who will testify that the voice on the call is George Zimmermans. But well just present the case, he said. Were just getting started. Gladys Zimmerman was the defenses first witness. OMara said he expects to call several of the states 38 witnesses back as well when trial resumes Monday, and he left open the possibility that he would try to introduce toxicology evidence showing Martin had marijuana in his system at the time he died. Judge Debra Nelson has denied the admis-sion of that evidence for the time being. OMara may also call witnesses who he says have stated that Zimmerman was not a racist. Part of the prosecutions theory is that Zimmerman profiled Martin as one of the young black men hed called law enforcement about as being pos-sible suspects in burglaries in his townhome community weeks prior to the shooting. OMara said he could rest his case as soon as next week. Zimmerman FIRE: Body found in truck Continued From Page 1Athe information is returned to the sheriffs office. Michael Simmons, 3195 SW Cypress Lake Road, said he heard what sound-ed like a transformer exploding early Thursday morning. But when he saw flames near the road, he called 9-1-1. As he reached the roadside, he realized it was a truck. Christine Zallie, also of 3195 SW Cypress Lake Road, said Lang was a quiet, decent guy who kept to himself. Usually, she saw him walking the road with his dog or driv-ing the dirt road in his blue Jeep with his dog beside him. Lang enjoyed hunting, fishing and boating in his spare time, the obituary said. He was preceded in death by his mother, Prepa Geiger Lang, and survived by father, James Jimmy Lang and his wife Dawna, one sister and two brothers. Funeral services will be held on Tuesday at 11 a.m. in the Chapel of Guerry Funeral Home. PLANE: At least 2 dead Continued From Page 1Aing unusually from side to side and that at one point the tail seemed to hit the ground. By the time the flames were out, the top of the Boeing 777s fuselage had burned away. The tail sec-tion was gone, with pieces of it scattered across the beginning of the runway. One engine appeared to have broken away. Emergency respond-ers could be seen walk-ing inside the burned-out wreckage. News of the crash spread quickly on Twitter and the Internet in this wired city, with eyewitnesses tweet-ing their stories, posting images of the plumes of smoke rising above the bay and uploading video of passengers fleeing the burning plane. It just looked really bad, Belding said. Ive seen the pictures of it since then, and its amaz-ing anyone walked out of that plane. The investigation has been turned over to the FBI and terrorism has been ruled out, said San Francisco Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White said. Federal aviation and transportation investiga-tors were heading to the scene. Asiana, Boeing and the engine manufacturer, Pratt & Whitney, pledged to work with them. Based on witness accounts in the news and video of the wreck-age, Mike Barr, a for-mer military pilot and accident investigator who teaches aviation safety at the University of Southern California, said it appeared the plane approached the runway too low and something may have caught the run-way lip the seawall at the end of the runway. San Francisco is one of several airports around the country that border bodies of water and have walls at the end of their runways to prevent planes that overrun a runway from ending up in the water. CRASH: Couple killed Continued From Page 1Awere pronounced dead at the scene, according to a Florida Highway Patrol news release. Three-year-old Bentley Bennett was flown to UF Health of Jacksonville, formerly Shands, by TraumaOne air ambulance but allowed to return home to Lake City Friday night. He suf-fered bruises and lacera-tions, according to a friend of the family. Anne Ratliff was an independent contractor for the Lake City Reporter as a circulation crew leader. A UPS truck, driven by Georgia Ann Gray, 55, of Berkley Springs, W.Va., was crossing U.S. 90 to enter a gas station after exiting I-10 with two other UPS freight vehicles when it struck the left rear side of the Ratliffs 2002 Ford Taurus at about 1:25 p.m., the FHP release said. The Taurus spun out of control, crossed the eastbound lanes of U.S. 90, overturned and struck a tree with its roof, the report said. According to The Baker County Press, the location is known for serious wrecks. Edward Taylor of Lake City, who saw the accident, told The Baker County Press he removed Bentley from the Taurus. Taylor said he was at the gas station when he saw the accident and went to the vehicle to help the occupants. The paper reported that Taylor could hear the child crying, so he removed him from the car seat and had a friend call 9-1-1. FHP said in the report that charges are pending. The UPS trucks were being delivered to Jacksonville by truck driv-ers, The Baker County Press said. SPRINGS: Scramble on for shares of $10 million Continued From Page 1Awetland there now, so we would have to build one. We think its a project that anyone could get behind. A constructed wetland would create a natural pro-cess of reducing nitrates in the spray systems treated water. Bird said that projects selected for the $10 mil-lion should do at least one of three things: result in a net decrease in the amount of water pumped out of the aquifer, result in a net increase in aquifer recharge or result in a net decrease in evapotranspi-ration of water from the water basin. When state lawmakers wrapped up their legisla-tive session, they remem-bered to budget money for springs protection but never discussed where the money would go, according to Rep. Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City. Now, it seems unclear if anyone knows where the money will be distributed. The department will use the information it requested from the water management districts before session, work with the Legislature and deter-mine how best to spend any money that is appropri-ated, said Dee Ann Miller of the DEP press office. The lists we got from the districts will be used to determine the best springs bang for the buck, she said. With that in mind, the department and Floridas affected water manage-ment districts (Northwest Florida, Suwannee River, and St. Johns River) will select projects that, to the greatest extent possible: involve infrastructure and best management practices, not planning or research; definitively and quantifiably improve spring water quality or flow; are ready to move forward and make an impact. Prior to the legislative session, DEP requested a list of projects from all five Florida water manage-ment districts. The projects totaled $122.4 million 10 times what the state spent on springs in 2012. Now, water management districts are vying for a pot of money smaller than what they asked for, but plans for the distribution havent been finalized yet. The DEP will work with state politicians, the public and the districts to decide the best way to distribute the funds. Ten million dollars for the whole state? said Joel Foreman, president of the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce. The probability is that it wont be coming to our water district. Typically, money goes south. Porter recently sat down with DEP officials to dis-cuss her thoughts on the money and where it should be distributed. Coming from an area that contains the largest concentration of freshwater springs, Porter said the DEP seemed very interested in what she had to say. She also recently co-sponsored a water protec-tion bill in the state House that is now state law. It requires water manage-ment districts to include certain reservations and institute minimum flows and levels, and it requires districts to enter into inter-agency agreements for resource management. This is a great start to restoration and protection of the springs in North Florida, Porter said. We will continue to put money toward the health of our springs and water bodies each year, and continue to try to increase the dollars dedicated to remediating our springs and water bod-ies back to their pristine condition. Porter said the worldfamous Ichetucknee River and springs need to be at the top of the DEPs list for project funding, as the two are an economic engine for North Central Florida. However, Porters counterpart in the state Senate appears not to agree that the Ichetucknee should be DEPs top priority.. State Sen. Charles Dean, R-Inverness, told the Ocala Star-Banner on May 20 that At the top of the list for me is Silver Springs, and the springs over at Crystal River. According to Dean, Silver Springs, a tourist attraction that will become a state park in October after $4 million in changes remove the exotic animals and amusement rides, became his top priority during com-mitee talks because it was already in the works. When asked by the Lake City Reporter who needs the money the most, Dean responded by email that The money is going to projects we believe will directly affect our springs in the most posi-tive way. These projects are intended to move dirt. It will be put into effect immediately. Asked for further clarification of which project deserved top priority, an aide authorized to speak on Deans behalf said by email that Dean has continued to ask that both [Silver Springs and Ichetucknee] be funded. We have been told the $10 million will be appropriated across many projects. Deans district stretches from Columbia County south to Marion and Citrus counties. According to Bird, communities surrounding Silver Springs and Wekiwa Springs north of Orlando are working hard to tap into the $10 million. Im concerned that the funding will be so watered down if they try to spread it too thinly, said Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson, president of Our Santa Fe River. In order to be effective, they need to give $10 million to each springshed that has a troubled spring. She said the state will be looking at areas that have big attractions, the springs with the biggest bang for the buck, as DEP stated. But to Malwitz-Jipson, Foreman and many North Central Florida residents, the Ichetucknee River pro-vides an economic engine to this area. For now, however, overpumping and nitrogen load-ing are destroying it, Bird said. Large farms fertilize their land and then the nitrogen runs into the river. However, Steve Minnis, the director of government affairs and communication with the SRWMD, said he was excited for the $10 mil-lion, as the state has never had springs protection money in the past. Its not just agriculture, he said, disagreeing with Bird and Knight about the main cause behind the springs deterioration. Its all of us. Were all a part of the problem and were all a part of the solution. FILEA boy snorkes through a rock formation at the Ichetucknee Springs head.
C ongress should intervene to keep Georgia and the Army Corps of Engineers from further damaging the seafood harvest and environmental habitat in Floridas Apalachicola Bay. The federal courts have sent a clear message they dont intend to bring fair-ness, clarity or a sense of urgency to ending the 23-year water wars among Florida, Georgia and Alabama. Its time that Congress established once and for all that the states must share a watershed that serves a distinct need for all three. And Washington needs to act before Apalachicolas oyster beds and estuary dry to the point of becoming both an ecological and an economic crisis. The three states have battled for decades over a dam that the Corps built in the 1950s on the Chattahoochee River north of Atlanta. Constructed principally to create hydroelectric power and control flooding, the dam has evolved over the years to act as an impor-tant drinking water resource for metropolitan Atlanta, which has used water from the reservoir, called Lake Lanier, to meet the needs of fast-growing suburbs. The withdrawals have come at the expense of users downstream such as Floridas seafood industry, which relies on water flow from the entire basin to feed the Apalachicola River. The river flows south across the Florida Panhandle and empties in the Gulf of Mexico. A federal appeals court in Atlanta handed Georgia a victory in 2011 by ruling that the city had a legal right to the water, setting aside a lower court ruling that would have opened more flow downstream. The ruling came amid a rapid deterioration of the Apalachicola habitat. The lack of freshwater from the tristate basin has sapped the bays oyster harvest, which produces 90 percent of Floridas oysters and 10 percent of the countrys. Flows into Apalachicola are at the lowest recorded levels since 1929.... Florida Sens. Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio were unsuccessful in adding tough language to the Senates current water supply bill that could have brought more of the water downstream. Still, the measure calls on the governors of the three states to cut a deal and for Congress to address the matter if they dont. Floridas House delegation and Gov. Rick Scott have also asked the House to include language in its version of the water bill that provides for an adequate flow of water to the Apalachicola region.... The appellate ruling may have strengthened Georgias hand, but that state has an interest in reach-ing a political solution. The court, after all, noted that the law was ambiguous about the extent of the Corps authority to provide water for metro Atlanta. A deal among the three states would end the costly litigation and give Georgia more certainty over its water supply. The states agreed in two interim compacts in the 1990s to balance Georgias water supply needs with those of the downstream states. But this holding pat-tern cannot continue. Allowing Georgia to stake claim to a federal dam and interstate waters that should oper-ate for the benefit of the entire basin is unfair. It makes no legal, practical or economic sense, and it stands to ruin an industry and region of national importance. Florida should continue pressing its case. I n retrospect, Mohammed Morsi, ousted this week after a year as Egypts presi-dent, should have done what hed promised voters in the countrys first free election: Rebuild the economy, beginning with tourism, the countrys largest industry, by reassuring the safety of tourists. Crack down on the kind of petty corruption -routine bribes to traffic cops and lower-level bureau-crats -that unduly infuriates the public. Remove barriers to foreign investment, especially in oil and gas exploration. Attack youth unemploy-ment with New Deal-type public works programs. Without making a big deal of it, greatly step up trade with Israel, the Middle Easts most developed economy, and quietly seek its help in setting up a high-tech sector. This is what Morsi was elected and failed to do. The public disil-lusionment was overwhelming and manifested itself in the massive public demonstrations that finally persuaded the military to remove him from office. We supported Morsi at the beginning. But he is a loser, a flag-waving accountant told The Washington Post. Morsi is a longtime member of the Muslim Brotherhood, described by The Associated Press as the regions oldest and most prestigious political Islamist group. But during the campaign, Morsi played down his Islamic ties. Symbolically, he distanced himself from the Brotherhood by running as a member of a new party with the calculatedly neutral name of the Freedom and Justice Party. He won with something less than a man-date, just under 52 percent. Nonetheless, Morsi began to implement, quietly at first and more blatantly as time went on, what is called political Islam. Members of the Brotherhood and their Islamist allies were named to high government posts. Morsis rhetoric became increasingly reli-gious. Perhaps the moment he over-reached was allowing a panel domi-nated by Islamists to rewrite the constitution, which was approved in a referendum with only 32 percent voter turnout. This week, the military gave Morsi 48 hours to begin tackling the nations economic problems. When he failed to meet that impos-sibly short deadline, the military removed him from office in what it insisted was not a coup. But it had all the earmarks of one: the arrest of the Brotherhoods top leadership, Morsi himself held in an undis-closed location, tanks in the streets and the suppression of pro-Morsi media. Until new elections can be held at some unspecified date, Morsis interim replacement as president is Adly Mansour, the chief justice of Egypts Supreme Court. He was sworn in Thursday. Morsis ouster could be expected to infuri-ate advocates of political Islam, but Mansour received valuable religious and political cover when Saudi King Abdullah send congratulations on your leadership of Egypt in this critical period of its history. As far as the United States stands, Morsi is no great loss. He was an ineffectual leader and his brand of political Islam promised problems down the road. But his ouster was a setback for our espoused principle of elected democracy. Then again, as the late Sen. Everett Dirksen used to say, Sometimes it is neces-sary to rise above principle. A Fourth of July Gallup Poll presented an inter-esting picture of our country. Americans overwhelmingly express pride in being American, yet the division is wide and deep about what being an American means. Eighty-five percent of respondents say they are extremely or very proud to be an American. Yet, 71 percent say they think the signers of the Declaration of Independence would be disappoint-ed how the country has turned out. Only 15 percent of conservatives and 12 percent of Republicans say the signers of the Declaration would be pleased with how the country has turned out. But, 41 percent of liberals and 42 percent of Democrats say the signers of the Declaration would be pleased. Clearly, there are very different ideas between the two parties and between conservatives and liberals about what truths the signers of the Declaration felt were self-evident and what exactly rights to life, lib-erty and the pursuit of happiness means. Thats not to say that there was unanimity of opinion even among those who signed the Declaration of Independence. To state the obvious, there are signatures affixed to the bottom of the Declaration of men who saw no inherent contradiction in a nation founded on the idea of liberty in which slavery was legal. My guess is that the 85 percent who today express pride in being an American do so because they believe this is a free and moral country. We all agree, I think, on these principles. But, like the difference of opinion about slavery two centuries ago, we have huge disconnects among large parts of our population about what a free and moral country is about. Anyone who follows what I write can guess where I stand. It is hard for me to believe that many in our country see no contra-diction in believing that freedom can be an American ideal while half of Americans live in households getting some sort of government benefits. Or that somehow a country can be thought of as free in which 40 cents of every dollar the national economy produces goes to govern-ment at either the federal, state or local level. Or that government can put us in debt to the tune of the total value of the annual output of our economy. Or that the real debt burden sitting on the American public is some $90 trillion -more than five times the size of our gross domestic prod-uct -that represents the unfunded liabilities of Social Security, Medicare and other government programs. How can we see this as a free, moral country when we legally and casually use abortion as a means of birth control and provide hundreds of millions of taxpayer funds to Planned Parenthood, the nations largest abortion provider? Or that government can tell us what kind of health care we need and must buy and can tell employ-ers what kind of health care they must provide. Or that government can force employers to provide birth control and abortion pills to employees, even, as in the case of the Christian owners of Hobby Lobby, it violates their religious convictions. Or that children go to public schools where it is illegal to pray or teach traditional family values. Theres been a lot of writing recently about the Civil War battle of Gettysburg. When President Abraham Lincoln gave his famous address at Gettysburg, Pa., in 1863, he said the nations business was unfinished and he defined the task ahead that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom. The challenges to freedom stand before us today as they stood before Lincoln then. America is deeply divided and confused, as it was when the bloody battle at Gettysburg was fought. We again need courageous leadership that will lead us back to the path of freedom and moral principle that inspired our founders and is our destiny.

From staff reports Fort Whites district champion 14U All-Stars soft ball team picked up where it left off at the Florida State Championships, but the vic tory run didnt last. The 2013 Florida State Championships are at Shocker Park in Ocala. Fort White, which went undefeated at the district tournament in Live Oak, opened state with a 13-3 win over South Orlando on Thursday. The next game was pushed back to Saturday and Fort White fell to Mount Dora, 12-2. In the elimination bracket later Saturday, Fort White lost to Madison, 11-7. Mount Dora advanced in the winners bracket and will play the Longwood/ Winter Park winner for the state title. The Columbia Rookie All-Stars team, playing in the Rookie State Tournament in Palm Beach Gardens, dropped all three pool games. Columbia lost to Manatee, 13-3, on Thursday, to Fishhawk, 12-4, on Friday. and to Orlando, 13-7, on Saturday. By BRANDON FINLEY email@example.com Its been a week that Columbia Highs Trey Marshall will never forget. The to-be senior safety was invited to The Opening at Oregon, a Nike football camp held on the University of Oregon campus and reserved for the nations top 150 athletes. On Tuesday, he ran a 4.34 40-yard dash to place him fourth out of his peers and on Wednesday he made his decision to play college football at Florida State University. For Marshall, the typical attributes came into play when making his decision, but he also had a bit of history steering him in Tallahassees direction. Just the tradition of CHS players going on to FSU and then to the elite, Marshall said. And while Columbia head coach Brian Allen is one of those people, Marshall said that the decision was ultimately his. I do look up to him, but it was my decision, Marshall said. He made his decision back in 1996, so the program is a whole different thing today. It was a decision that I had to make for myself. But it was also more than tradition as Marshall wanted to make sure that his friends and family were able to make the trip to see him play at the next level. Instead of going out of state, Im just going down the road, Marshall said. Marshall said the idea behind getting the commitment out of the way now was to focus on being a Tiger rather than a Seminole. Its definitely a relief, Marshall said. It allows me to focus on the season. This has been a busy week, but Im ready to work as hard as I can. Im going to do all that I can do to get a championship.

Associated PressLONDON Ever since she was a kid, practicing until midnight with her father, Marion Bartoli went about playing tennis her own way. The two-handed strokes for backhands, forehands, even volleys. The hop-ping in place and practice swings between points, which help her focus. The unusual setup for serves no ball-bouncing, arms crossed, right wrist resting on her left thumb before the toss. Whatever works, right? This unique Wimbledon, appropriately enough, produced a unique cham-pion in the ambidextrous Bartoli, the 15th-seeded Frenchwoman who won her first Grand Slam title by beating 23rd-seeded Sabine Lisicki of Germany 6-1, 6-4 Saturday in an error-filled, one-sided final that was far from a classic. Its always been a part of my personality to be dif-ferent. I think being just like the other one is kind of boring. I really embrace the fact of being a bit differ-ent and doing something that not everyone is, said the 28-year-old Bartoli, who plays tennis right-handed but signs autographs with her left. I actually love that part of my game, being able to have something different. She certainly stands alone. This was Bartolis 47th Grand Slam tournament, the most ever played by a woman before earning a championship. Until Saturday, it had been more than 1 years since Bartoli won a tourna-ment at any level. Until these last two weeks, Bartolis record in 2013 was 14-12, and she had failed to make it past the quarterfinals anywhere. Asked how to explain how she went from that sort of mediocre season to winning seven matches in a row at Wimbledon, never dropping a set, Bartoli briefly closed her eyes, then laughed heartily. Well, Bartoli said, spreading her arms wide, thats me!Bryans complete slamBob and Mike Bryans 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 win over Ivan Dodig and Marcelo Melo wrapped up the Bryan Slam, making the 35-year-old identical twins from California the first mens doubles team in the history of Open-era tennis to hold all four major titles at the same time. They now have 15 Grand Slam tournament victories, improving on the record they broke at the Australian Open when they surpassed John Newcombe and Tony Roche as the winningest mens pairing of all time. With their third Wimbledon title, the Bryans are the first team to hold all the slams along with an Olympic gold medal. If they win the U.S. Open in September, theyll join Ken McGregor and Frank Sedgman as the second mens team to complete a calendar Grand Slam. The Aussie duo did it in 1951, 17 years before the Open era began, and ended up winning seven titles in a row before the streak was snapped.

Johnson doubles up at DaytonaBy JENNA FRYERAssociated PressDAYTONA BEACH Jimmie Johnson became the first driver in 31 years to sweep Daytona International Speedway, accomplishing the feat with a dominating run Saturday night for his fourth win of the season. The Daytona 500 winner is the first driver since Bobby Allison in 1982, and the fifth overall, to win both races in a season at Daytona. I dont think I made a bad move tonight. Im pret-ty proud of that, Johnson said. To tie anything that Bobby did is really special. Im very proud of that. Ive going to take that home and savor it pretty well. The five-time NASCAR champion was the leader on the restart for a two-lap sprint to the finish in over-time Saturday night. He held off Kevin Harvick on the restart, and then pulled out front to a sizeable lead. Tony Stewart moved into second and may have been timing his attempt to make a pass for the lead when a caution in the middle of the pack froze the field. Stewart was second, followed by Kevin Harvick in a Chevrolet sweep. Clint Bowyer was fourth and team co-owner Michael Waltrip fifth in a pair of Toyotas. Then came Kurt Busch, Jamie McMurray and Dale Earnhardt Jr. as Chevrolets took six of the top eight spots and seven of the top 10. Casey Mears was ninth in a Ford, followed by Ryan Newman. The race was stopped for almost nine minutes for a six-car accident with 11 laps remaining that included yet another vicious hit for Denny Hamlin. Hamlins car inexplicably turned right and spun hard into the frontstretch wall. It then turned back into traf-fic and Hamlin was tagged hard by AJ Allmendinger in a hit that caused his car to lift off the ground.

T he Columbia County Tourist Development Department will be joining five other departments within county govern-ment that will be on the move this month. The various Columbia County agencies will be relocat-ing to the Duval Place Complex, at 971 West Duval Street, directly behind the Supervisor of Elections Office. In addi-tion to the TDC offices, other departments join-ing in the move include Code Enforcement/Safety, Veterans Services, County Extension Offices, Red Cross and Suwannee Valley Economic Council. Phone extensions are expected to remain the same for all of the departments involved in the move and the trans-fer of the offices is expect-ed to be completed by mid-July. The refurbished offices were at one time the site of the Lake City Medical Center Complex.Southside Rec improvementsIf you havent visited the Southside Recreation Complex recently, youll be impressed with the amount of work going on at the park. Three new combination concession stand/restroom buildings are well underway. A total of 40 sets of new bleachers with safety railing have been installed on concrete pads. ADA-compliant sidewalks have been poured. New shade structures are being installed at the sites of the new bleachers. New dugout roofs are being installed and underground electrical upgrades are well under way. Bids are being solicited for a new LED sign at the entrance to the complex on Bascom Norris Drive. A few months ago the Board of County Commissioners and Tourist Development Council approved nearly $3 million in improvements at the complex with the county funding approximately $1.3 million and the remaining $1.7 million being underwritten by a 1 percent increase in the Local Option Tourist Development Tax. The improvements are scheduled to be done in four phases.A busy time for sports tournamentsJune and July represent two of our busiest months of the year for sports tournaments hosted in Lake City, Fort White and Live Oak.

Terri and her husband Jim Grebs own Terris Sweet Tweets and Sandwiches where they specialize in homemade foods. From homemade pie crusts, soups, sandwiches or specialty cakes and other baked items, Grebs puts a personal touch and care into her dishes and makes them from scratch qualities that arent often offered at chain res-taurants.

Even after the federal health overhaul takes full effect next year, the 24-year-old said he will prob-ably decide to pay the $100 penalty for those who skirt the laws requirement that all Americans purchase coverage. I dont feel I should pay for something I dont use, said the Milwaukee resident, who makes about $48,000 a year working two part-time jobs. Because he makes too much to qualify for gov-ernment subsidies, Lopez would pay a premium of about $3,000 a year if he chose to buy health insur-ance. I shouldnt be penalized for having good health, he said. Persuading young, healthy adults such as Lopez to buy insurance under the Affordable Care Act is becoming a major concern for insurance com-panies as they scramble to comply with the law, which prohibits them from deny-ing coverage because of pre-existing conditions and limits what they can charge to older policy holders. Experts warn a lot of these so-called young invincibles could opt to pay the fine instead of spending hundreds or thou-sands of dollars each year on insurance premiums. If enough young adults avoid the new insurance market-place, it could throw off the entire equilibrium of the Affordable Care Act. Insurers are betting on the business of that group to offset the higher costs they will incur for older, sicker beneficiaries. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that about six million people of various ages will pay the tax penalty for not having insurance in 2014, the first year the law championed by President Barack Obama will be fully implemented. Its hard to estimate how many of those will be the young and healthy adults insurers are trying to reach, but that subgroup makes up a very small portion of the overall market. Even though its small, experts say it could be enough to throw the systems financ-ing off-kilter. About 3 million 18-24 year-olds in the U.S. cur-rently purchase their own insurance. Many pay high prices for scant benefits, with high deductibles and co-pays because they make too much to qualify for Medicaid and have no cov-erage options from their employers or parents. The Urban Institute estimates that the majority of adults in their 20s will qualify for government subsidies under the Affordable Care Act. Premium hikes could be a disincentive for young peo-ple weighing their options. Premiums for people aged 21 to 29 with single cover-age who are not eligible for government subsidies would increase by 42 per-cent under the law, accord-ing to an analysis by actuar-ies at the consulting firm Oliver Wyman. By com-parison, an adult in his or her early 60s who would see about a 1 percent aver-age increase in premiums under new federal health rules. Insurers including HEALTH continued on 2D

The group included State Representative Elizabeth Porter, members of her staff and family. Several other senators and representatives were on hand, accompanied by staff and guests. A sizeable contingent from the Suwannee River Water Management District served as guides and hosts on the two-day event which included visits to several area springs, along with the Santa Fe and Suwannee Rivers. The visit was a great opportunity to showcase the beauty of our area and explain about the challenges represented by water consumption, nutrients and other factors on the quality and quantity of available water. The Florida Legislature appropriated $10 million during this years session to begin efforts to restore these essential water resources which are so important to the economic and tourism sectors and to our overall quality of life. Our congratulations and thanks for all those responsible to the tour and the participants for taking time out of their busy schedules to learn more about these significant challenges and funding needed to stop further deterioration of our water resources.State parksWith summertime upon us again, its time to remember our state parks No discussion about tourism in our area would be complete without talking about our Florida State Parks. In all, we are blessed to have 10 such parks in the Suwannee River Valley, including the nearby Olustee Battlefield. During the 2011-12 state fiscal year (July 1 June 30) our parks hosted more than 484,000 visitors, provided employment to 52 and generated more than $3 million in direct salaries. Ichetucknee Springs alone hosted approximately 200,000 visitors. Florida State Parks have been judged by a national association as the best system in the nation twice in the past five years and are a strong contender again this year. If you, your family members or friends havent visited one of our parks recently, youll missing a real treat.

Industry knowledge can give us a leg up, but this familiar-ity fuels a common pitfall, too. For example, its enticing for an ortho-pedic surgeon to load up on shares of a medical device company that enables surgeons to perform knee and hip replacements, if the good doctor strongly believes in its prod-ucts. But if either the sector suffers or the technology falters, then the portfolio shrinks. (3) Not selling our stock winners to avoid Uncle Sam. Its common to avoid selling a winning stock to delay having to pay taxes on the gains. But this can threaten our portfolios performance. If you doubled or tripled your money in a particular stock over some years, that stock may have come to represent a big chunk of your portfolio meaning that if it takes a tumble, so will your nest egg. Over time, unsold winners can dominate your portfolio and increase your risk. A good rule of thumb is to try not to let any holding come to make up more than, say, 5 percent of your overall net worth. K_\Dfkc\p=ffcKXb\ Power UpFluor (NYSE: FLR) offers engineering, procurement, construction, maintenance and project manage-ment services globally, serving the oil-and-gas, power, infrastructure and government markets, among others. Its recent growth has been sluggish, but its future seems bright. Some have worried about the U.S. governments sequester-caused budget cuts, which could hurt future orders for Fluors services from the Department of Energy or Defense. Despite that, Fluors ties to the private energy and independent oil-and-gas sector make it a very attractive bet over the long run. President Obama has made it clear that hed like to see America become more energy independent. This will likely result in the construction of new drilling rigs as well as more energy-efficient power plants, and also more pipeline and storage tanks capable of holding an increasing number of natural gas and oil finds. Fluors bread-and-butter business is these energy and oil-and-gas projects. In just the last quarter alone, Fluor received $6.5 billion in awards with $3.1 billion coming from the oil-and-gas sector and its total back-log rose 11 percent to $18.6 billion. With a forward-looking price-toearnings (P/E) ratio of about 13, Flu-ors stock seems fairly to attractively priced and should reward long-term investors. More risk-averse sorts might wait and hope for a pullback in price. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Fluor.) TheMotley Fool To Educate, Amuse & Enrich 8jbk_\=ffc Dp;ldY\jk@em\jkd\ek The Short StoryYears ago, I bought stock in a company that my girlfriend worked for. I had been watching it and thought it was undervalued at $34 per share. So I bought about $5,000 worth. As I had hoped, it soon made a modest gain. Then rumors arose that the company would not meet its third-quarter projections and that the stock was expected to fall. Well, I sold and made a little profit. Two days later it was announced that the company was going to be acquired, and its stock rose to $60. It goes to show that if you believe in a company, stick with it. Day-trading or short-term trad-ing is no longer an option for me. I will focus on the long term when it comes to solid companies. R.A., Tucson, Ariz. The Fool Responds: Youre right. Lots of great companies encounter occasional hiccups. Its often best to hang on, as long as you retain long-term faith in their future especially if you consider them undervalued. Rumors can be dangerous, too, as they wont nec-essarily come to pass. Strong stocks tend to rise over time.Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

LIFE Sunday, July 7, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D I was one of those little kids who were often called a fish. You know the type a pint sized 3or 4-year-old who could swim like a champ and would rather spend all day playing underwater in a swimming pool than doing anything else. My mom nearly drowned as a teenager, and while she never learned to swim herself, she was adamant about giving me and my sisters swimming lessons. To her credit, all three of us are excellent swimmers today. My swim-ming abilities even helped pay for school. I swam competitively through my teens and early 20s, and today, I enjoy swimming as my favorite form of exer-cise. It follows that investigating the history of the bathing suit is a topic of interest for me. It brings back happy memories of days at swim team practice and now relates to my work evaluating vintage objects.In the beginningIn the early years of the 20th century, there were strict laws that required women to be fully clothed when taking a swim. The bathing suit requirements of the day included a non-form-fitting costume that consisted of a dress, pan-taloons, cap, and shoes. Most women obliged and frolicked in the waves in full length swimming attire while others took their chances with a more revealing bathing suit. Most woolen yes, that reads woolen as in wool swimsuits of the early decades of the 1900s were basic black. All of that changed in the summer of 1905 when Australian swim-mer Annette Kellerman announced her desire to become the first woman to swim the English Channel.

He has miles to go and is fueled by incidents that have caused several of his family members to lose their limbs in unrelated incidents. Tedford, 19, of Bruce, Mississippi is a ris-ing junior at Ole Miss. Although he is a journal-ism major, hes currently the biggest story from his hometown. Tedford has been riding his bicycle a month and eight days, approximately five weeks, to raise funds and awareness for the Amputee Coalition, a non-profit for amputees. He named his campaign Miles for Amputees and hes traveled across the county to get financial and inspirational support for amputees. My dad, grandmother and my mother are all amputees from different causes, he said. My mom had a blood clot over a year ago and my grandmother had a disease called sepsis right before she passed away and my dad has periph-eral vascular disease affecting his blood circula-tion.

By JEFFREY COLLINSAssociated PressPINEVILLE, N.C. Supporters of a North Carolina museum honoring James K. Polk, Americas 11th president, are learning a lesson thats hitting home at other monuments to less-er-known American lead-ers: Government spending on their memorial sites is declining, so private money and grants had better be found quickly. The small museum on the land where Polk was born is the target of Republican state lawmakers looking for places to cut the budget. Similar money problems are besetting other sites that honor some of the American presidents least likely to make the histori-ans top 10 list. Ohio has been cutting funds for the state-run museums honor-ing Rutherford B. Hayes, Warren G. Harding and Ulysses Grant. The North Carolina budget proposal initially removed nearly all the $110,000 needed each year to run the Polk museum south of Charlotte, mean-ing it would close for all but a few days a year. Now, the House and Senate are try-ing to reach a compromise plan that makes some cuts, with hopes that private gifts or grants could make up the difference.

2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JULY 7, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 2DLIFE By LOUISE WATT Associated Press BEIJING Mothers and fathers arent the only ones urg ing adult children to visit their par ents. Chinas lawbooks are now issuing the same imperative. New wording in the law requir ing people to visit or keep in touch with their elderly parents or risk being sued and facing penalties came into force Monday, as China faces increasing difficulty in car ing for its aging population. It remains to be seen how much the amended law changes the sta tus quo, however. Elderly parents in China already have been suing their adult children for emotional support, and the new wording does not specify how often people must visit or clarify penalties for those who do not. In the first ruling since the new wording, a court in the eastern Chinese city of Wuxi ordered a couple to visit the womans moth er or face possible fines and even detention. One of the drafters, Xiao Jinming, a law professor at Shandong University, said the new law was primarily aimed at raising awareness. It is mainly to stress the right of elderly people to ask for emotional support. ... We want to emphasize there is such a need, he said. Cleaning lady Wang Yi, 57, who lives alone in Shanghai, said the new law is better than noth ing. Her two sons work several hundred miles away in southern Guangdong province and she sees them only at an annual fam ily reunion. It is too little, for sure. I think twice a year would be good, she said. We Chinese people raise children to take care of us when we are old. Later Monday, the court in Wuxi ruled that a woman and her husband must visit her 77-yearold mother who lives 25 miles away at least once every two months in addition to mandatory holiday visits, or face possible fines and detention, according to the state-run Peoples Court Daily. Chinas legislature amended the law in December following frequent reports of elderly par ents neglected by their children. It says offspring of parents older than 60 should see that their daily, financial and spiritual needs are met. Although respect for the elder ly is deeply engrained in Chinese society, three decades of mar ket reforms have accelerated the breakup of Chinas traditional extended families, and there are few affordable alternatives, such as retirement homes. Xiao said even before the Law of Protection of Rights and Interests of the Aged was amended, there were several cases of elderly parents suing their children for emotional support. Court offi cials generally settle such cases by working out an arrangement for sons or daughters to agree to visit more frequently. Typically, no money is involved. The number of people aged 60 and above in China is expected to jump from the current 185 million to 487 million, or 35 percent of the population, by 2053, accord ing to figures from the China National Committee On Aging. The expanding ratio is due both an increase in life expectancy from 41 to 73 over five decades and by family planning policies that limit most urban families to a single child. HAPPENINGS Dicks celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary The family of Rodney Seth and Norma Robinson Dicks are pleased to announce their 60th wedding anniversary. High school sweetharts Rodney and Norma were married July 5, 1953, in Lake City. Rodney served in the Navy when they were married. They returned to Lake City to raise their children on their family farm. They are loving parents of four chil dren: Regal (Shirlene), Delvey (Cindy), Kevin (Loretta) and Jilene Dicks (Porfiero). They have six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Rodney and Norma are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. A family celebration dinner was held in their honor. We are so grateful for our parents and the wonderful legacy they have built. Norma and Rodney Dicks.

The wedding is planned for July in St. Augustine. The bride-elect is a 2003 graduate of Columbia High School and a 2008 gradu ate of the University of Florida with a masters degree in elementary educa tion. She is employed at Meadowbrook Elementary School in Gainesville. The future groom is a 2002 graduate of Columbia High School and a 2009 gradu ate of the University of Florida with a doctorate in pharmacy. He is employed at the Malcom Randall VA Medical Center in Gainesville. Gregory Welder and Lindsey Cox ASSOCIATED PRESS A group of elderly men take a rest on their wheelchairs at a park in Beijing. New wording in the law requiring people to visit or keep in touch with their elderly parents or risk being sued came into force Monday. She attempted the feat amid controversy over her bathing suit. Kellerman sparked an international stir when she was arrested for wearing a one-piece woolen swimming suit. She omitted the panta loons, cap, and shoes and started a tidal wave of talk. Obscenity laws aside, Kellerman started a swim suit revolution. Roaring Twenties By the 1920s-30s, bright colors, synthetic fabrics, and a more feminine shape emerged in the style of swimsuits. The famous Jantzen swim suit manu facturing firm made the diving girl logo a beach blanket image and every thing from billboards to bumper stickers donned the famous logo. In the 1940s, convertible straps which could be unfastened were introduced in part to prevent tan lines. Today, vintage swim suits bring high values on the vintage couture market. High-end swim suits from the 1950s like those designed by Christian Dior command $1000 to $2000 while more mainstream brands like Catalina dat ing to the mid 1900s are worth $50 to $350 per suit. The 1950s emphasized the hourglass figure with a bubble suit featuring cotton material and low cut top. The 1960s swimsuits saw an interest in showing off the mid-drift, too. Two piece polyester bathing suits of the era were still conservative and covered up ones belly button. By the 1970s, swim suits were a far cry from the cover-up everything style bathing suits of the early 1960s. Later, Speedo swimsuits from the 1980s featured Lycra materials and straightforward styles. American designer suits On the market On the market, vintage swim suits in good condi tion always bring interest from collectors, and celeb rity suits are all the rage. A prominent example of the interest in the vintage swim suit market is celeb rity suits. For instance, Pamela Andersons onepiece red Speedo lifeguard bathing suit from her starring role on the widely popular hit TV show, Bay Watch, recently sold for $275. DR.

MILES: Cross-country fundraiser Continued From Page 1D stayed with them for a night as he made his way to St. Augustine. Tedford arrived in Lake City Thursday just before 4 p.m. and headed out Friday morning. Tedford said hes done previous events with bicycling fundraisers on a smaller scale. Those rides started in Mississippi and went into neighboring states. I wanted this one to be the biggest one Ive ever done because it has to do with my family, he said. This is defi nitely the biggest fundraiser Ive ever done. For The Miles For Amputees cam paign, Tedford flew to San Diego, California, from Jackson, Mississippi, on May 27, to begin his landmark trek. He plans to end his fundraising journey July 6 or 7 in St. Augustine at the beach. Tedford travels at least 50-100 miles per day on his bicycle. His options for sleeping are: Camp at a campground or at roadside; stay in a hotel room and see if a home is available through WarmShowers.org, a website for crosscountry cyclists where homeowners allow cyclists to use their home or a room for nights. He said he didnt really do any physi cal training to prepare for the ride. I rode whenever I could, but I let this ride be my training, he said. I just built myself up every day. Theres no fundrais ing goal in particular, I just want to raise as much money as I can. Tedford said the journey has been an adventure he wont soon forget. The West Coast arm was the hard est thing Ive done in my whole entire life, he said. The heat, although it is dry heat, I would much rather be in this humidity than over there. Hitting 115degree temperatures on consecutive days will drain you. He said when he started his trek he didnt have the appropriate tires to bike out west, and he had 10 flat tires in California and Arizona alone because of goathead thorns. In New Mexico he purchased extrastrength tubes, tires and tire liners to reduce the number of flats. On the West Coast, Tedfords trek was also challenged by a dust storm. It wasnt the dirt devil you see every now and then, it was a full-out dirt-dust storm with the winds going about 50 mph directly on me, going sideways, he said. I had to get a ride into town because dust storms last about two or three hours. Tedford said he doesnt expect much fanfare when he completes his journey in St. Augustine, where his father, girl friend and other friends will greet him with open arms. Through social media followers have made contributions and posted com ments with their support about Tedfords fundraising effort. All my friends back home have given me so much support, he said. Ive had people all over the nation find out about this and they were willing to donate. To contribute to Tedfords campaign, go to Miles For Amputees on Facebook.

Credit and Debit cards accepted By SUE MANNING Associated Press LOS ANGELES The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is bolstering its campaign against puppy mills by showing photos of sick puppies and harsh kennel conditions taken by the federal agency that licenses commercial breeders. The organization has added 10,000 photos to its NoPetStorePuppies website showing dogs at breeders across the U.S. with matted hair, bloody stool, long nails, injured eyes and dental disease. The pictures were taken by the U.S. Department of Agriculture over the past few years and were obtained through a publicrecords request. The breeders were warned or given citations to correct the problems. The ASPCA wants people to boycott puppy sales in pet stores and on the Internet, the places where most puppy mill animals are sold. It included the photos in a database that can be searched by breeder, license number or ZIP code. A lot of pet stores will say, We dont get pets from puppy mills, but from USDA-licensed breed ers, said Cori Menkin, senior director of the ASPCA puppy mills campaign. Rod and Lindsey Rebhan bought a miniature Australian shepherd for $1,000 at a Novi, Mich., Petland store in 2011. The newlyweds considered Jack our first baby, our little boy, Lindsey Rebhan said. About a month later, the dog had its first seizure. After 25 sei zures over the next four months, he had to be put down. Because Jacks epilepsy was so severe, vets said it was probably hereditary. The store refunded the sale price, but didnt pay vet bills. Im pretty sure it was hush money, Lindsay Rebhan said. If the couple had seen the web site, they would never have been in the pet store, Lindsey Rebhan said. Jack came from Evergreen Designer LLC, owned by Daniel Schlabach in Fresno, Ohio, according to purchase papers and the ASPCA website. Phone messages left for Schlabach were not returned. Photos of the kennel taken Nov. 2, 2011, show a dog with scabs and ulcerations on his muzzle; an underweight dog; four dogs with diarrhea; dirt and hair buildup in den boxes; two dogs with raw skin on their paws; one with a cloudy left eye; and one with a runny nose and a cough. In a reply to an email query, Petland Novi said it didnt discuss customer claims because its cus tomers are entitled to privacy. The puppy mill fight started long ago. Agencies took up the cause as the number of pet own ers telling heartbreaking stories of illness, death and costly vet care swelled. The sale of puppy mill dogs has been banned in some cities, including Los Angeles. Stores can sell shelter animals or hold adoption events on weekends. Animal welfare groups claim the way dogs are kept at some breeders where they are pro ducing hundreds of puppies at a time cause chronic physical ailments, genetic defects or fear of humans. Breeding females are over bred, kept in unsanitary, crowded cages without vet care, adequate food or water. When they can no longer breed, they usually are killed, experts say. When the puppies are sold, they often are stuffed into crowd ed trucks and hauled thousands of miles, sometimes getting sick from the trip itself, arriving in bad shape and unable to bounce back from illness or parasites. Not all breeders run puppy mills, Menkin said. Breeders without violations typically wont appear in the database, but if theyre only meeting USDA stan dards, and not exceeding them, then we would consider their operation a puppy mill. The database photos go back to 2010, and the number for each breeder varies. I have not studied it because its a waste of time, said Karen Strange, a lobbyist for the Missouri Federation of Animal Owners. Much of the informa tion is old, and its a publicity stunt for the ASPCA ... and other radical animal rights groups to garner money from the unknow ing public. USDA records show a third of the 2,205 licensed dog breeders in the country are in Missouri. Republican state Sen. Mike Parsons of Bolivar, Mo., recently told the Legislature there that commercial dog breeding in Missouri was a $1 billion indus try that employs thousands and spends millions every year on dog food, veterinarian services and utilities. Strange said some breeders contacted her when they heard about the photos, wondering how they should react. She said they were told to conduct business as usual and if they were in compli ance with state and federal law, they had nothing to worry about. Menkin disagrees, citing legal loopholes. For example, she said, federal law says a breeder must have an attending veterinarian, but it doesnt say dogs have to be handled by the vet. Tanya Espinosa, a legislative and public affairs spokeswoman for the USDAs Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, said the agency would not comment on the website. The ASPCA obtained the photos through the Freedom of Information Act and plans to con tinue posting pictures, Menkin said. ASPCA uses USDA photos to fight puppy mills Pets By SAMANTHA CRITCHELL AP Fashion Writer NEW YORK There are the stylish brides who wear the beautiful gowns and have their hair and makeup just so, and there are the stylish weddings, where everything from the bridal ensemble to the parting presents has the touch that makes it all seem special. Vogue.com put together a wedding guide just in time for all those summer nuptials. The Associated Press asked editor Jessica Sailer Van Lith to put together a list of signs that the affair will be one to remember: Its personal. The wedding, from beginning to end, should seem like it belongs to the bride and groom, not like theyve plugged into someone elses dream. Maybe the bride carries her grandmothers hand bag, maybe she doesnt take off that necklace she wears every other day of the year. The perfect look and feel will come from authenticity, not trends and certainly not what everyone else is doing. Theyve gone local. Couples can embrace the place they were so thoughtful in choosing by offering touches of local cuisine, decor or music. Dont truck in flowers or caterers wholl be driving for hours, says Sailer Van Lith. Immerse you and your guests in the place you are and have cho sen to be. The bride looks like herself. She shouldnt look for a perfect dress because there are too many of those, says Sailer Van Lith. What a bride should want is the right dress, and from there it should be easy to pick everything that goes with it, she says. The seating chart makes sense. The seat ing chart is and sort of should be one of the most stressful parts of planning a wedding, but the payoff of success is huge. At a stylish wedding, where someone has been thoughtful of the seating chart, all the guests will know the bride and groom have put them there for a reason: because they want these people from other parts of their lives to make a connection. Less can be more, especially with the head count. Everyone invit ed is someone the bride and groom want to have there, says Sailer Van Lith. Period. There isnt a set schedule. A wedding isnt a science, its an art, and, she says, the only people it all needs to make sense to are the bride and groom. If they like a daytime wed ding with formal dress, its OK, and the same goes for the wedding that moves straight to dancing from the cocktail hour. Vogue offers its guide to stylish weddings ASSOCIATED PRESS Vogues The Wedding Guide has come out just in time for summer nuptials. Animal protection group seeks to halt cruel breeding shops.

SITES: Money woes hurting some Continued From Page 1D blow to the Polk site, said Ben Pelton, treasurer of the Polk Memorial Support Fund, which has also morphed into a group called Keep Polk Open in the fight to save the site. We are not structured to raise money. Were a sup port group. How are we going to find $110,000 a year quickly? Pelton said. How can the state shut down the birthplace of a president? How many other states have one of those? Just 21 states can claim a presidential birthplace. More than half of those birthplaces are in four states: Virginia, Ohio, New York and Massachusetts. Presidential birthplaces and museums are a patch work of national historic sites, state run facilities and private museums. Many have cut back the days and hours they are open. For lesser known presi dents like Franklin Pierce, Chester Arthur or Martin Van Buren, tourists have to visit during the summer because they arent open for most of the year. The state-owned President James K. Polk State Historic Site in Pineville includes 21 of the 150 acres that Polks par ents owned, farmed and lived on when he was born in 1795. The site has a museum and two buildings reno vated to look like a home and a kitchen from the period. They are not the Polks home those were torn down a long time ago. Instead, officials moved similar buildings from that era to the land in the late 1960s when they decided to build the museum, said site manager Scott Warren. The Polk site had 16,100 visitors last year, includ ing more than 2,800 thirdgraders on field trips from Charlotte areas schools. The museum also includes a short film on the presi dent who went to war with Mexico and cut a deal with Great Britain over the Pacific Northwest that led to America stretching from sea to shining sea a man many historians consider the countrys most suc cessful one-term president, or its least-known great president. Polks family moved from North Carolina when he was 11, and he is much bet ter known as a Tennessean. The federal site dedicated to Polk is at his adult home in Columbia, Tenn. That location also has Polks presidential papers. North Carolinas Polk site is just beginning to deal with what some other presidential sites across the country have already han dled when Great Recession swallowed funds for muse ums and historical sites. Ohio, home to seven pres idents, has cut funding to its presidential museums. The home of Warren G. Harding ended up in Ohios hands in the late 1970s when the pri vate organization oversee ing it ran out of money. The museum is now open just five days a week and only in the afternoon, said Sherry Hall, site manager for the Harding Home President Site. Harding is a tough presi dent to sell. His adminis tration was tainted by the Teapot Dome oil bribery scandal and several of his appointees went to jail. But he also supported womens right to vote and advocated for educational and eco nomic opportunities for blacks a progressive stance in the 1920s. Were not one of the big guys either. But I like not being one of the big guys, Hall said. People think they know every thing about Lincoln, Washington or Jefferson. They often dont know a lot about Harding, or what they know is wrong. I like being able to teach them something new. ASSOCIATED PRESS James K. Polk State Historic Site Manager Scott Warren (left) tells visitors about a restored home at the site where President Polk was born in Pineville, N.C. Lawmakers are considering a significant cut to the budget of the museum honoring Polks birthplace that could force the facility to close. Online: ASPCA website: www.

DEAR ABBY: I was bullied from second grade all through school. In junior high the abuse was both emotional and physi-cal, and it happened on a daily basis. My parents response was that maybe I was the problem -and if I wasnt, people would stop picking on me. (Thats a letter for another day.) What would have been my 10-year high school reunion was two weeks ago. Needless to say, I didnt go. Since the reunion, however, I have received more than 30 messages via Facebook from former classmates. It seems I was the main topic of conversation at the reunion, mainly because everyone apparently want-ed to apologize to me. While I dont doubt the sincerity of their apologies, I truly dont want to have any contact with them (even on Facebook). At the same time, I dont want to be rude and just ignore them. So far, I havent replied to any of their messages. I want to know if I must, and if so, what I should say? To be honest, Id like to tell them all to go to hell, but Im trying to be nice. -LOST FOR WORDS DEAR LOST FOR WORDS: You do not have to say anything to any of these people, and you do not have to be nice. Silence sends a strong message, and it is the one Im recommending. Understand that by apologizing they are trying to make themselves feel bet-ter. Its also possible that maturity has caused them to realize what they did was wrong. However, you are not obligated to accept their apologies if doing so will make you feel worse. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I am a single mother struggling with my 12-year-old daughter. For the last three months she has been withdrawn, uncommunicative, rude, mean and treats me with contempt. We have been in counseling and are going back again, but I cant ask people to stay with her while I go and recharge my spirit because shes so rude to them as well. I need to know, Abby, what do other parents do to make it through this incredibly painful period in the lives of their teenager and themselves? -SINGLE MOM IN CANADA DEAR SINGLE MOM: Your daughter should be evaluated by her pedia-trician to be sure there isnt an underlying cause. Could she have been molested, be using drugs, pills, alcohol, etc.? Do her friends act this way? Does she HAVE friends? Was this behavior tolerated when she was smaller? If a child of mine behaved that way, she would be grounded and her cellphone and Internet privileges canceled until she was 30. As to whom you can leave her with while you recharge, does this girl have a father, an aunt, a grandparent who can give you respite? If those resources are not avail-able, you will have to deal with this (with the help of a more effective therapist than the one you were using) until your problem child becomes an adult. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Emotions will be dif-ficult to control and stress levels will rise if you dont stay active. Short trips, net-working events or doing something that will help you feel good about who you are or the way you look are your best outlet. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Youve got more going for you than you realize. Dont second-guess what or how you do things. Stand up for who you are and what you can do. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Look back at past con-nections and youll figure out how to handle a situa-tion you face with someone you work for or deal with. Use your knowledge and experience and you will find a way to come out on top. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Use your imagination and youll find a way to attract support, interest and potential partner-ships. Dont be afraid to think outside the box or to express your feelings. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Embrace change. Avoid traveling to destinations that are unstable. Size up your situation at home and your personal finances and make whatever adjust-ments are necessary to add to your security. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Try something a little different. Offering your services to a group you feel akin to will help you make new friends. Finding new ways to use your knowledge and skills is a surefire way to increase cash flow. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take care of your responsibilities and you will have clear passage to do as you please. Its leaving chores unfinished that will lead to emotional problems with people who depend or count on you. Love is enhanced, so plan a romantic evening. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Meet and greet new people and you will be inspired to explore ways to use your talents more efficiently or uniquely. Discussions will help you solve any problems or uncertainty you are har-boring. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Dont lend or borrow money or posses-sions. Put money matters behind you. An added expense at home or due to a personal problem is likely. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Put time and effort into your relation-ships with others. Even if someone disappoints you, its best to be supportive and carry on as usual. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Self-improvement will pay off. A healthier diet and regular exercise coupled with mental chal-lenges that help you strive to do better will bring great results. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Love, happiness and success can be yours. Getting involved in social activities or spending time with friends or family will help you come to a finan-cial or contractual decision youve been considering. Invest in yourself, your property and your skills. +++++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across &ROOVHQLRUVH[DP6RPH689V9 1/24 of un jourBBB)UDQNOLQ *UDPP\QRPLQDWHGgospel/R&B singer )LUVWQDPHLQ IRRWZHDU 18 Robs2QHWLPHZUHVWOLQJ JUHDWBBBWKH*LDQW 6KDGHRIEODFN)RUFHGUHWXUQ":RPDQLQ&RQDQ 'R\OHV$6FDQGDOLQ%RKHPLD 0RVWFRPPRQ HOHPHQWV $VVHW7DUJHWRI 8QLWHG1DWLRQVVDQFWLRQV (XULSLGHVSOD\2SHQLQJZRUGV"+HDGVRID 1RUWKZHVWWULEH" (QGLQJVRIVRPH courses &RPSRVHBBB6HODVVLH:KDWZKDOHUVPD\ EULQJEDFN 'HIHQGLQJOLEHUW\ SXUVXLQJMXVWLFHorg. &DUORBBBZLQH *RNLFNLQJDQG VFUHDPLQJ &ROODERUDWLYH:HE VLWH 46 Bon ___)XOO\'XSOLFLWRXV7KH\PD\EHHSLF$FWRU5REHUWV54 Trouble7KH6XSHUGRPHHJ%LEOLFDOILJXUH ZKRVHQDPHPHDQVKHOS BBBGH3RPSDGRXU (figure in Fr.KLVWRU\ 0DQ\DSHUVRQ EHKLQGWKH,URQ&XUWDLQ 'RPHHJ6HFUHWDU\HJ3LHFHORQJHUWKDQLWV QDPHVXJJHVWV 6HFRQGRID/DWLQ WULR *DQJPHPEHUV 2.EHIRUHDMRE %LUGRUIUXLW&DQDGLDQ LQWHUMHFWLRQV /LNHDVLJKWLQJRI DQLYRU\ELOOHGZRRGSHFNHU :KHUH$FURVV ZHUHLQYHQWHG 6XIIL[ZLWKIDYRU&DWFKLQJBBB6HDWRI'DOODV &RXQW\$OD 6HYHQSLHFHSX]]OHV$GYHQWXUHURI*UHHN P\WK 89 Big gobbler'LVKWKDWPD\EH ODGOHG (VNLPRERRW+ROO\ZRRGOHJHQG 'DYLV &URRNHG%ULGJHVSRW,WKDVGtDVBBBEDU+HUVKH\ SURGXFW 6RPHGLQHUR'LVREH\HGRUGHUV VD\ 'HZ\)RXU+RO\5RPDQ HPSHURUV &HUWDLQVLQJHUV1RWHGPDXVROHXP VLWH BBBEXGG\:RPHQV+HDOWK FRPSHWLWRU 7HUPLQDO LQIRUPDWLRQ %DJKGDGVBBB &LW\ BBBOHQJWK
6D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JULY 7, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-04246DLIFEBy BETH J. HARPAZAP Travel EditorNEW YORK The Statue of Liberty reopened to visitors on July 4 for the first time since Superstorm Sandy. But for those who just want a photo op with the statue, there are many other vantage points, from Red Hook, Brooklyn, and Governors Island, to a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. The Staten Island ferry takes you right past the statue for free, while those on bigger budgets can reserve a room with a view at the luxury Ritz-Carlton hotel. Here are 10 ways to get a great look at the Statue of Liberty, starting with the cruises that resumed ser-vice to Liberty Island on Independence Day.STATUE CRUISES TO LIBERTY ISLANDStatue Cruises http:// www.statuecruises.com is the sole operator for boats that take visitors to Liberty Island, where the Statue of Liberty is located. Boats resumed departing from the Battery in Lower Manhattan on Thursday, when Liberty Island reopened to the pub-lic for the first time since Superstorm Sandy last October. The statue itself was not damaged by the storm, but landing docks and infrastructure, includ-ing electrical, phone and sewage systems, required months of repair work by the National Park Service, which operates the statue. Ellis Island was also damaged by the storm and no reopening date has been set, so cruises to the Statue of Liberty will not be stop-ping there yet as they did in the past, NPS spokes-man John Warren said. But Warren added that the park service is hopeful that boats to Liberty Island will soon resume departures from Liberty State Park in New Jersey. You can buy Statue Cruises tickets at the Battery, but the cruises do sell out, so advance online purchase is strongly recom-mended. There are three types of tickets: Access to the statues crown, $20 ($17 for seniors, $12 for ages 4-12); or access to the pedestal of the monument or the grounds of Liberty Island, $17 ($14 for seniors, $9 ages 4-12). Visit http://www.nps. gov/stli/planyourvisit/statue2012reopening.htm for more information.STATEN ISLAND FERRYTake the subway to Bowling Green or South Ferry and hop on a Staten Island ferry for a free ride across New York Harbor. The boats run 24 hours a day. Theres always a crowd of tourists on deck taking photos as the boat passes the Statue of Liberty.OTHER CRUISESMany vessels offer sightseeing cruises of New York Harbor and Manhattan that sail right past the Statue of Liberty. They include the Circle Line, Manhattan by Sails schoo-ners, Hornblower Cruises, Spirit Cruises, New York Water Taxi and Bateaux New York. Some offer live music or fancy lunch or dinner cruises that can top $100.BATTERY AND LOWER MANHATTANTo see the Statue of Liberty without getting on a boat, just head to the southern tip of Lower Manhattan, an area known as the Battery (subway to South Ferry or Bowling Green). While youre there, consider exploring other parts of Lower Manhattan, which includes the financial dis-trict and the 9/11 Memorial. NYC & Company, the citys official tourism agency, offers a guide at http://www.nycgo.com/lower-manhattan .BROOKLYN BRIDGEA walk across the Brooklyn Bridge is one of the classic New York expe-riences. In addition to giv-ing you a close look at the bridges Gothic arches and delicate filigree of cables, it offers a magical view of Lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. To get the full impact of the skyscraper canyon coming into view, take the subway to the Brooklyn side (A or C to High Street) and walk back across the bridge.GOVERNORS ISLANDGovernors Island, a former Coast Guard facility now used for public recre-ation, offers inviting lawns, old forts, concerts, art exhibits and food vendors, along with great views of Lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. Get there by ferry, weekends through Sept. 29 from Manhattan or Brooklyn, then walk or bike around the island, http://www.govisland.com/html/visit/directions.shtml .RED HOOK, BROOKLYNOne of the best views of the Statue of Liberty is from Red Hook, an up-and-coming waterfront neigh-borhood in Brooklyn. A cruise terminal where the Queen Mary 2 homeports is located in one corner of the neighborhood, and lots of popular eateries like the Fort Defiance Bar and Red Hook Lobster Pound line the main street, Van Brunt. Oddly enough, one of the best spots for viewing the Statue of Liberty is from the parking lot of the local Fairway supermarket, 480-500 Van Brunt, as well as from Fairways rear patio, which sells ready-to-eat fare. Another great vantage point is from Red Hooks Louis Valentino Jr. Pier and Park, on Ferris Street between Coffey and Van Dyke, one of the few places where you can get a rare head-on view of the statue, instead of from the side. A free ferry runs weekends this summer to Red Hook from Pier 11 in Lower Manhattan, http://www.nywatertaxi.com/tours/redhook Red Hook is also fun to explore by bike, and its one of those rare neigh-borhoods where you can often find street parking.MUSEUM OF JEWISH HERITAGEThe Museum of Jewish Heritage A Living Memorial to the Holocaust at 36 Battery Place has tall picture windows that look directly out onto the Statue of Liberty. While you look, you can listen to the museums Voices of Liberty sound installation, in which Holocaust survi-vors, refugees and others discuss why they chose to make the U.S. their home, http://www.mjhnyc.org/.RITZ-CARLTON NEW YORK, BATTERY PARKThe majority of guest rooms at the Ritz-Carltons Battery Park hotel offer views of the Statue of Liberty, and they even come equipped with tele-scopes for an up-close look. For July Fourth weekend, prices for a room with a king or two double beds start at $420, going up to $7,500 for a 2,100-square-foot (195-square-meter) suite; http://www.ritzcarl-ton.com/en/Properties/NewYorkBatteryPark/Default.htm.LIBERTY STATE PARK, NEW JERSEYThis waterfront park on the New Jersey side of the harbor offers the closest view you can get of the statue without sailing past on a boat or stepping onto Liberty Island. There are three ways to get there: Drive; take the PATH train from Manhattan, followed by a light rail and a half-mile (.8-kilometer) walk into the park; or take a ferry from the World Financial Center in Lower Manhattan, http://www.libertylandingferry.com While youre there, check out the Liberty Science Center, a great museum for kids, http://www.lsc.org. 10 options for seeing the Statue of Liberty By JENNIFER FORKERAssociated PressCrocheting these days is so much more than granny squares and chunky Afghan blankets. Its leaner and trendier than it was in the 1960s and 70s, when the craft was known for its bulky, acrylic yarns. Crochets enduring popularity is due partly to todays wide array of high-quality, luxuri-ous yarns many at affordable prices. Crochet can be found on highfashion runways and in upscale home decor. Textile artists such as Kaffe Fassett use it. But it also can just be fun: Mischievous yarn bombers decorate urban landscapes street signs, trees, even bicycles and cars in crochet. Its never been easier to learn how to wield a crochet hook, thanks to an assortment of books, magazines and online tutorials, the latter of which often are free. To me its like painting with stitches, says Teresa Richardson, 50, of Savannah, Ga., who shares free patterns and video tutorials at her blog, Crochet Geek, begun in 2006. Its being able to put out an interpretation of something artistic and creative. Her YouTube video tutorials average 75,000 daily views, according to YouTube Analytics. Some viewers request particu-lar patterns, which challenges Richardson and keeps her work-ing 12-hour days; she recently completed requests to crochet a manatee, an octopus and a sheep. Carol Alexander, of Berne, Ind., has been crocheting since the early 1980s, when she made a toy for her then-unborn son. A cro-chet-pattern designer for more than 20 years, shes the executive crochet editor for Crochet! and Crochet World magazines. Respectful of the crafts past, Alexander champions what cro-chet has become: classier, cre-ative and commonplace. Crochet has always been the redheaded stepsister (to knit-ting) but not anymore, says Alexander. Its really out there and setting the standards. Edie Eckman, co-author of the new Crochet One-Skein Wonders (Storey Publishing), agrees that crochet has become more fashionable. Its OK to be seen crocheting publicly now, muses Eckman, of Waynesboro, Va. New yarns have helped. Appealing blends that include bamboo, silk or alpaca, for exam-ple, allow for thinner, softer yarn. As a result, crocheted pieces can drape more attractively, which is why clothing designers are using more crochet in their work, says Alexander. The Craft & Hobby Association estimates that 14.7 million Americans crochet, 89 percent of them women. The traditional and ubiquitous granny square remains popular, but has been re-envisioned. People are using it in the same old ways but in new colors and in smaller yarns, says Eckman. Crocheters and knitters have long argued about which medi-um is superior. Eckman, who does both, sees each crafts charms. Crochet, she says, is faster, more versatile and more forgiving. Knitting uses two or more needles to create two basic stitches the knit and the purl which are combined to create hundreds of stitch patterns. Crochet, with its one hook and basic stitches, is able to conjure up thousands of stitch patterns. And because theres only one live stitch in crochet, crocheters can change a pattern on the fly more easily than knitters can, and without fear of dropping a stitch. Crochet allows you to be relaxed about things, says Eckman. Knitting requires more structure and forethought. To learn crochet, Alexander recommends starting with an online tutorial so you can watch another persons hands. Annies, the crafts retailer, which publishes Crochet! and Crochet World magazines, posts a free stitch guide online. Richardsons basic stitch tutorials include instructions for left-handed crocheters. She gently recommends that new crochet-ers practice the basic stitches a chain, single crochet, half double crochet and double cro-chet before moving on to more advanced projects. The key is to keep practicing until you experience those ah-ha moments when it all makes sense, Richardson wrote recently on her blog. For inspiration and free patterns, also visit Ravelry, an online community for crocheters and knitters. And crochet isnt limited to yarn. Jewelry makers crochet with thin wire (often incorporat-ing beads). Its so far beyond what we were doing in the 80s and 90s, says Alexander. Passionate crafters keep crochet alive, thriving ASSOCIATED PRESSTextile artist Kaffe Fassett crochets skull caps and embell ishes them with buttons and beads. Todays crochet is leaner and trendier than that of the 1960s and 70s, from w hich we know it for its bulky, acrylic yarns and Afghan blankets. Cruises, shore views provide many photo ops.ASSOCIATED PRESSThe Staten Island Ferry passes the Statue of Liberty as it cro sses New York Harbor. The Statue of Liberty, which had bee n closed to visitors since Superstorm Sandy, reopened for tours July 4, when Statue Cruises resumes departures for Liberty Island from Lower Manhattan. For tourists who want a photo of the famous statue without visiting the island, there are many options and vantage points, including rides on the free S taten Island Ferry. TRAVEL
