From staff reportsL arry Gatlin, Jerrod Niemann and the Roots and Boots tour featuring Joe Diffie, Sammy Kershaw, and Aaron Tippin will headline the 2013-14 sea-son of FGC Entertainment at Florida Gateway College. Two popular shows will also return to FGC this sea-son. The Nutcracker will have two performances in December, and will feature local children of all ages. Never Stop Believin: A Tribute to Journey, which was FGCs first sellout show in 2010, will return. They will also incorporate a tribute to Bon Jovi into the perfor-mance. Season tickets for the eightshow series will go on sale July 20 at a Pick-Your-Seat event at the college Levy Performing Arts Center. Individual show tickets will go on sale July 29, and the series kicks off on Tuesday, Aug. 13. The 2013-14 season marks another great year of enter-tainment at Florida Gateway College, said Troy Roberts, the colleges public informa-tion coordinator. As soon as this past season concluded, we were immediately asked by our season ticket holders about this upcoming lineup. Theres been an anticipa-tion building in the commu-nity, and we hope this lineup meets those expectations. Rob Chapman, coordinator of marketing, web and graphic production, said it proves daunting each year to produce a better lineup than the year before, especially after a groundbreaking 2012-13 season. For the second year in a row, we blew away all of our expectations, he said. Every year, well continue to experiment and tweak parts of the series. But the most important element is that we continue to gather feedback, talk to our fans, and continue to improve all elements of their experience at Florida Gateway College. This season will feature five shows in the Levy Performing Arts Center and three shows in the Howard Conference Center. THE LINEUPAug. 13 An Evening with Larry Gatlin One of country musics living leg-ends, Gatlin made a name for himself as part of one of the most successful trios of all By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comCity officials plan to forge ahead on their plans to leave the Columbia County combined communications center, and have come up with a transition plan to have the citys revamped communication system up and running in the near future. The transition plan and strategy will be up for dis-cussion during Monday nights city council meet-ing. where City Manager Wendell Johnson has requested councils endorse-ment of the Lake City Public Safety Dispatch Center modification and transition plan. The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. Monday at City Hall, 205 N. Marion Ave. Last month, the city decided that it would dispatch the city Fire Departments calls, and the agreement for the citys participation in the Columbia County com-bined communications center was terminated, effective Oct. 1. Our plans are to move ahead and be prepared well before that, Johnson said. He is hopeful the citys modified dispatch center will be up and running by mid-September or earlier. Johnson said the city started working on the transition plan as soon as they received notice of the Oct. 1 deadline. The transition plan was implemented July 1 and consists of physical, personnel and software changes at the city dis-patch center. The antici-pated financial impact of the project was listed at $350,000. Funding was earmarked in the citys 2012-13 budget for dispatch center work.

The department is train ing 5,000 staff members, putting new technology in their hands and collaborat ing with judges, service providers, guardians ad litem and others to cre ate a consistent, holistic child-welfare system. We called the initia tive Child Protection Transformation, because it completely changes the way DCF approaches reports of abuse and neglect, wrote DCF Secretary David Wilkins in an op-ed piece in the Tallahassee Democrat on July 5. According to Wilkins, he learned that the states child welfare system was broken shortly after taking the reins at DCF, when 10-year-old Nubia Barahona was murdered in February 2011. Wilkins diagnosed the problems as systemic, including the inexperience of DCF work ers --due partly to their rapid turnover --and the lack of proper training for them. Our focus will shift to assessing the full family functioning to understand the dynamics and set the stage for identify ing needs that will keep the children safe, he wrote. Our investigators and case managers are being trained to engage the whole family in the process to teach them to make better decisions and, when necessary to keep the child safe, remove children from dangerous situations. But as the new system rolls out, some childrens advocates are asking whether DCF has cut too many corners, thereby put ting more families at risk. Senator wants residency probe TALLAHASSEE Top Florida leaders may soon investigate whether six lawmakers are flouting a state law that requires a legislator to live in the district that he or she rep resents. Sen. Jack Latvala, RClearwater, called for the inquiry in a letter Thursday to Gov. Rick Scott as well as the states legislative leaders. Latvala, who chairs the Senate Ethics and Elections Committee, stat ed he wants a conclusive finding into whether the legislators are violating the law. Floridas Constitution requires legislators to be elected from the district where they live. Any violation of these provisions is a compro mise of our democratic process and undermines the values that we expect public officers to embody, wrote Latvala. Jackie Schutz, a spokes woman for Scott, said the senators letter raises serious matters. She said Scott has asked his gener al counsel to meet with top lawyers in the Legislature to determine appropriate next steps. Latvala in his letter included links to news stories about the six legis lators. All are Democrats and nearly all of them are from South Florida. The Legislature under the constitution is responsible for being the sole judge of the qualifications of its members. Man stole car with toddler in it FORT MYERS Authorities are searching for a man they say stole a car with a 2-year-old girl in the backseat in south west Florida. Fort Myers Police say the suspect stole the car from an apartment com plex Friday and quickly dropped the child off down the road. The sus pect then allegedly drove to another location and jumped into another car, possibly a white sedan and drove off. The News-Press reports a woman walking her dog found the little girl crying and asking for her moth er. The child appeared to be unharmed and was reunited with her mother. Police said the woman had just arrived home at her apartment and was helping another person out of the car when the suspect jumped in and took off. Mom arrested after child is hurt CLEARWATER A 27year-old southwest Florida mother has been charged with child neglect after her 2-year-old daughter was injured during an alleged drug deal. Clearwater police said Nicole Whitfield left her daughter in the car when she got out to buy or sell marijuana. The deal some how went bad and thats when authorities say the little girl tried to get into the vehicle her mother was in and ended up being dragged a short distance when the vehicle started moving. The child was taken to the hospital for minor injuries and released to relatives. The Department of Children and Families is also investigating. Wildlife deaths blamed on algae INDIAN RIVER A federal researcher has found three varieties of toxins from microscopic algae that he says are responsible for the deaths of manatees, dolphins and pelicans in the Indian River Lagoon in the past year. Scientists said manatees have been eating more of the toxins, which stick to seaweed, because algae blooms have killed the seagrass they normally eat. Peter Moeller, a research chemist at the National Ocean Service in Charleston, said he still doesnt know which algae are producing them and they dont know how to eliminate it. NASHVILLE, Tenn. H ospital officials say coun try music star Randy Travis remains in critical condition and has been under heavy sedation since surgery following a stroke. The 54-year-old singer has been hospitalized since Sunday after suf fering congestive heart failure due to a viral illness. Travis suffered the stroke Wednesday night at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano and doctors performed surgery to relieve pres sure on his brain. A hospital statement says the Three Wooden Crosses singer is resting comfortably and that his fam ily continues to ask for prayers and support. The Grammy Award-winning singer has been surrounded by fam ily and friends while in the hospital and received a visit Thursday from George Jones widow, Nancy, who played music for her late husbands longtime friend. Depp interested in buying Wounded Knee SIOUX FALLS, S.D. For months, questions have swirled about whether developers, activists or tribes would be willing to plunk down millions to buy a portion of the Wounded Knee National Historic Landmark. Now theres a new poten tial buyer in the mix: Johnny Depp. But is the star of The Lone Ranger really preparing to be the one who buys the property where hundreds of Native Americans were killed? Or is it just the latest rumor in the contentious debate over the landmarks future? Depp touched off the story when he told Londons Daily Mail newspa per that he is working to buy a piece of the landmark on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to give back to the tribe because its important to their culture. The site is where 300 Native American men, women and children were killed by the 7th Cavalry in 1890. I am doing my best to make that happen, he told the newspaper of a possible purchase. Its land they were pushed on to and then they were massacred there. It really sad dens me. Landowner James Czywczynski, whose family has owned the proper ty since 1968, is trying to sell the 40acre fraction of the historic landmark and another 40-acre parcel for $4.9 million. The two parcels of land have been assessed for $14,000. The sale has sparked outrage among tribal members who feel Czywczynski is trying to profit from the killing of their ancestors. Kevin Costner selling land in South Dakota DEADWOOD, S.D. Hollywood actor Kevin Costner is asking $14 million for 1,000 acres of land he owns near the Old West gambling town of Deadwood in western South Dakotas Black Hills. The property includes the site of the ill-fated Dunbar casino resort, a $100 million project that would have included a golf course and a steampowered passenger train. It never materialized. The listing does not include Costners Midnight Star casino and restaurant, the tallest building on Deadwoods Main Street, or the $6 million visitor attraction he owns on the towns north edge called Tatanka: Story of the Bison. Costner filmed much of his Academy Award-wining movie Dances with Wolves in South Dakota. He has a strong sense of loyalty to the area and it was a hard deci sion for him, real estate agent Mike Percevich said, adding that it took months for Costner to make up his mind. There are separate listings for three pieces of property, with asking prices of $7.4 million, $1.2 million and $5.4 million.

The plans implementation includes placing orders for communication equipment and associated furnishing for the dispatch center, as well as hardware purchases. Project details include:Q Replacing the current console system with a new system; Q Adding repeaters for fire paging and other ser-vices; Q Replacing outdated repeaters; Q Cleaning the tower infrastructure to accommo-date proper wind loading and expansion; Q Implementing software for fire department state reporting; Q Adding fourth dispatch stations, including SmartCop implementation and furniture; Q Adding fire department laptops to SmartCop; Q Installing and programming 45 mobile and 60 portable radios to imple-ment digital protocols; and Q Re-configuring replay and recording systems to accommodate additional channels for the fire depart-ment. The transition plan also calls for two new dispatch-er positions. Johnson said officials hope to have the positions filled within the next month or two. Were going to do our very best to make this transition as efficient and safe as possible, he said. We feel our public will have no interruption of service delivery. In other business, the council will: Q Hear about the Ichetucknee Springshed Water Quality Improvement Project; Q Review a staff recommendation to approve the 2013-14 fiscal year tentative millage rate; and Q Reeive a presentation by Kayla Caslow, Cathleen Towne and Madison Patterson, Girl Scout Troop 25 members, about their Girl Scout Silver Award Project. The jurors considered nearly three weeks of often wildly conflicting testimony over who was the aggres-sor on the rainy night the 17-year-old was shot while walking through the gated townhouse community where he was staying. Defense attorneys said the case was classic self-defense, claiming Martin knocked Zimmerman down and was slamming the older mans head against the concrete sidewalk when Zimmerman fired his gun. Prosecutors called Zimmerman a liar and por-trayed him was a wannabe cop vigilante who had grown frustrated by break-ins in his neighborhood com-mitted primarily by young black men. Zimmerman assumed Martin was up to no good and took the law into his own hands, pros-ecutors said. State Attorney Angela Corey said after the ver-dict that she believed sec-ond-degree murder was the appropriate charge because Zimmermans mindset fit the bill of second-degree murder. We charged what we believed we could prove, Corey said. Local reaction was disbelief by some in the black community. I found it difficult to understand how a full-grown man can hunt down a child and just shoot him, said long-time civil rights leader Glynnell Pressley of Lake City. However, Pressley urged calm in the wake of the verdict. Violence only begets violence, he said. Thats not the way to do it. There are some other remedies and violence is not one of them. The head of the Lake City branch of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference said there was a lesson to be taken from the case. As a parent, I want to lock my children in the house, said Bea Coker. As a citizen and advocate, I beg each of us to take some time and get to know the children in our community. Dont let their appearance and our fear place this issue in our backyard. Debra White, president of the Lake City branch of the NAACP, did not imme-diately return a call seeking comment. As the verdict drew near, police and city leaders in the Orlando suburb of Sanford and other parts of Florida said they were tak-ing precautions against the possibility of mass protests or unrest in the event of an acquittal. There is no party in this case who wants to see any violence, Seminole County Sheriff Don Eslinger said immediately after jurors began deliberating. We have an expectation upon this announcement that our community will continue to act peacefully. The verdict came a year and a half after civil rights protesters angrily demand-ed Zimmerman be pros-ecuted. Zimmerman wasnt arrested for 44 days after the Feb. 26, 2012, shooting as police in Sanford insisted that Floridas Stand Your Ground law on self-defense prohibited them from bringing charges. Florida gives people wide latitude to use deadly force if they fear death or bodily harm. Martins parents, along with civil rights leaders such as the Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, argued that Zimmerman whose father is white and whose mother is Hispanic had racially profiled their son. And they accused inves-tigators of dragging their feet because Martin was a black teenager. Despite the racially charged nature of the case, race was barely mentioned at the trial. Even after the verdict, prosecutors said the case was not about race.

Cerveny Conference Center Episcopal Diocese of Florida By BRANDON LARRABEEThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Education Commissioner Tony Bennett will ask the State Board of Education Tuesday to prevent schools from dropping by more than one letter grade on the state report card in an effort to coun-ter what superintendents say could be an alarming drop in grades. Bennetts recommendations, to be taken up at a specially called meeting, are seen as an effort to avoid another botched rollout of the school grades after last years release became a public-relations headache for the Department of Education. Bennetts predecessor, Gerard Robinson, resigned a short time after the rollout mess, though Robinson said he was leaving to spend more time with his family. The limit on any drop in school grades was one of the key recommen-dations that school district superin-tendents offered Bennett during dis-cussions earlier this month. It would continue a policy started last year during the grades controversy. The superintendents say that some of the data theyre getting back as they do the initial calculations for the report cards this year seem to be off but they dont know why. Columbia County Schools Superintendent Terry Huddleston endorsed Bennetts proposal. Our teachers teach harder every year, and its not possible for grades to drop that much, he said. Part of the problem, Huddleston and other superin-tendents say, is that the state has imple-mented 13 changes this year alone to the accountability system for schools making it harder to meet the standards and harder to figure out whats going wrong. We dont have a problem at all with the standards being raised, but we have a problem with the method-ology in the way the grades are being calculated, Huddleston said. Concerns about that complexity also hover over the states efforts to put in place the Common Core State Standards, which are based on national guidelines. In a letter to state board members explaining his thinking, Bennett took pains to distance the school grades proposal from any idea that it would water down the states accountability system. To be clear, my recommendations ... are made not to soften the blow of higher standards or to reduce the number of failing schools, but rather to advance the best policy for Floridas students and position our state for a successful transition to full implementation of the (common core standards) in the 2014-15 school year and beyond, he wrote. Bennett also recommended not including the scores of students at so-called ESE centers, which teach students with disabilities, in the grades of the schools they might otherwise attend. Currently, those students scores count for the home school if the ESE center chooses to receive an alternative rating instead of a school grade. But because grades are set to be released soon, Bennett said any changes to this years grades under that recommendation should be han-dled retroactively through an appeals process. State Sen. Bill Montford, DTallahassee, said he saw the changes recommended by Bennett as a good, reasonable response. Montford, who also serves as the CEO of the Florida Association of District School Superintendents, took part in discus-sions between Bennett and the super-intendents. Clearly, I think this is a fair approach to it, Montford said. He said he was encouraged that Bennett was keeping the common core system in mind as he considered the changes. Miami-Dade County Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, who helped spearhead the drive for tweaking this years grades, was mea-sured in his praise of the recommen-dations. We support the commissioners recommendations, especially the con-tinuation of the temporary safety net that prevents schools from dropping more than one grade letter in a given year, Carvalho said. It is our hope, however, that the Florida Board of Education will consider polling dis-tricts for the ESE center choice (rat-ing or grading) prior to the release of school grades; otherwise, they will be branded as failing and have to appeal.

The Chamber of Commerce, in league with the Suwannee River Water Management District, is making a big push to get our share of the $10 million state lawmakers have allocated for freshwater springs restoration in Florida. The aim is to convert a sprayfield in the Ichetucknee Trace into a wetland. This plan is of critical importance to North Central Florida, as the Ichetucknee, a huge eco-nomic driver throughout the region, has long been under assault from a wide range of pollutants and contaminants, according to experts. Were not sure how much of the $10 million well get, but we do know two things. First, for the plan to be effective to any degree, we need at least a sizable chunk of it. In fact, local water district officials say we could sink the entire $10 million into saving the Ichetucknee and still not accomplish all that needs to be done. Second, while backed strongly by our own state Rep. Elizabeth Porter, the Ichetucknee plan is certainly not the top priority of her Senate counterpart, Charlie Dean of Inverness. Back in May, Dean told an Ocala newspaper his first choice for the funds was Silver Springs and Crystal River. That should come as no surprise.Senate District 5 stretches from Lake City all the way down to Marion and Citrus counties. The great mass of people, money and power in the district is centered in its southern reaches, which Dean, a former Citrus County sheriff, calls home. Beyond that, the near-demise of Silver Springs, once a world-famous tourist attraction, has garnered media atten-tion far and wide. What rational politician wouldnt make that his top priority? Sen. Dean told the Lake City Reporter that he favored restoration projects already under way because results would be seen sooner. The state has already allocated $4 million to Silver Springs, soon to become a state park, in order to remove rides and other vestiges of Disneyfication. Still, Dean studious-ly avoided admitting to us that his top priority lay to the south. Despite repeated questioning he would only say, through an aide, that he favored funds for Ichetucknee as well, and that a wide range of proj-ects would get some part of the cash. Sen. Dean, we appreciate your role in bringing the funds you already have to our region for similar projects. And if you believe the state Department of Environmental Protection should favor Silver Springs over us in this instance, so be it. Hopefully, funds in significant quantity to do some good will be available next legislative session as well, and it will be our turn. Well wait, if we have to. But dont count on our continued patience.The Ichetucknee is every bit as important to us as Silver Springs is to your constituents to the south. We can only hope you arent taking us, and our votes, for granted.R epublicans in the House of Representatives this week pushed through an agriculture bill that, for the first time since 1973, did not include the nations vast food stamp program. Officially known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, the program represents one of the federal governments last remaining major anti-poverty initiatives. Thursdays 216-to-208 party-line vote experienced particularly acri-monious debate, even by House standards. Conservatives hope to make deep cuts in the food stamp program, which usually represents nearly 80 percent of the agriculture bills spending. The economic recession of 200809 and continued high unemploy-ment rates have prompted huge jumps in the number of Americans who must rely on federal assistance to buy food. The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that SNAP participation rose from 26.3 million in 2007 to 46.6 million last year. Nearly one in every six Americans now receives food stamps. But the growth in costs has been even greater, jumping from $28.6 billion in 2005 to $74.6 bil-lion last year. That nearly tripling expense drew conservative ire -and a little unusual poetry from House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. If ands and buts were candy and nuts, every day would be Christmas, he told reporters when asked if he would allow a compro-mise bill to come to the floor. The idea of severing SNAP from the must-pass ag bill was first sug-gested by Michael Needham of the conservative Heritage Action for America. The reason Congress should end the unholy alliance that has dominated the food stamp and farm bill for decades is to allow an open and substantive debate on the issues, the group said this week. The SNAP-less ag bill is headed for opposition with the Senate, which approved modest cuts to food stamps. President Obama has vowed to veto the measure if it does not contain food stamps supports. Jim Weill, president of the national anti-hunger organization Food Research and Action Center, vowed his group would continue to work toward a farm bill that protects SNAP and the nations children, seniors and working families.

DeanFarm bill pared of food stamps sets up showdown with SenateRun Elbert Guillory against Sen. Landrieu Dale McFeattersmcfeattersd@shns.com Q Dale McFeatters is editorial writer for Scripps Howard News Service. A mid the dense fog and hot air concerning what the Republican Party should be about, which is really just a subheading of the bigger issue regarding what America should be about, a new voice of clarity has emerged. Its the voice of Louisiana State Sen. Elbert Guillory, who announced several weeks ago his departure from the Democratic Party, which he calls the party of disappointment, to become a Republican. I wrote about Guillory a few weeks ago after I met him at the @Large conference in Baton Rouge, where he announced his change of party. Subsequently, Guillory explained in a video that went viral why he, a black Democrat, would become a Republican, and he continues to deliver his compelling message with such power and clarity that I can-not see how he can be ignored as a leader who should rise to national prominence. Republicans are still in search for a candidate to run in 2014 against incumbent Democrat U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu. Why not Guillory? Recently Guillory tweeted out, Its no longer the American dream, its the American nightmare of relying on a monthly government check. Speaking to Republicans in Arkansas, he appealed to the Republican Party to stop cowering behind closed doors. Its time to shout our values and ideals from the mountaintops, he says. Prayer, family, free markets, limited government, lower taxes. I dont think it is possible to be any clearer about what this country needs to turn around. America is not growing. Jobs are being created at a painfully slow rate, and although the unem-ployment rate has dropped, the overall percentage of the population employed has barely budged from where it dropped to in the early days of the recession. Stanford University economist Edward Lazear laid out the dismal picture in a recent Wall Street Journal column. In 2006, 63.4 percent of the working age population was employed. By 2011, this was down to 58.2 per-cent and its still at 58.6 percent. Usually, when the unemployment rate drops, Lazear explains, there is a corresponding increase in the per-centage of the population employed. But not this time. Now more and more able-bodied men and women are dropping out of the workforce. Today 37 percent of the unemployed are long term -more than 26 weeks. At the peak of the last major recession in the early 1980s, Lazear notes, this never exceeded 27 percent. Why? The government plantation has grown even more generous (while we run trillion-dollar deficits to pay for it) to encourage not work-ing. Disability roles have increased 13 percent and food stamp recipients have increased 39 percent since 2009. And, of course, unemploy-ment insurance was increased to 99 weeks. Meanwhile, while we take more and more of our own resources to subsidize people to not work, the growing government strangle-hold over businesses -such as the Obamacare mandate (parts of which were just delayed by one year by Obama administration) to force businesses of 50 or more employees to provide government defined health care -makes grow-ing businesses and hiring full-time workers harder and harder. What is wrong with America is not a mystery. Its the Democratic Party. People who dont want to be free. People who dont want to take the personal responsibility for their lives that freedom requires. A politi-cal class drunk with the power and money they get running the govern-ment plantation. As always, blacks, with unemployment twice the national average, are hurt the most as the strangled economy doesnt grow. More and more blacks are realizing they need freedom, not the plantation. And without freedom, America will not grow. Its why black conservatives like Elbert Guillory see it all so clearly. Its why America needs him. Louisianans should get behind him and run him against Mary Landrieu.

Jason Maurice Brown, 34, 1600 E Duval Street, hit the victims hand with a golf club, cut the side of her face with a knife and sliced her shirt while arguing about her going to the store, according to a Columbia County Sheriffs Office arrest report. A deputy responded to Hardees on Main Boulevard in reference to a domestic violence call.There, the victim told the deputy that she currently has a domestic injunction against Brown at 204 NE Craig Ave. The deputy said in her report that she observed a scratch on the victims cheek, her right wrist was swollen and the left shoulder of her shirt was cut. Later, Brown allegedly told a dep-uty that it was his home and the victim did not live there. However, her clothes were found in a vehicle sit-ting in the driveway, and her purse was found in the garbage can at the corner of the house. Brown told Cole a golf club sitting by the back door was taken by the victim. Brown has been arrested numerous times for viola-tion of his domestic violence injunction, the report said, by continuing to return to the residence. He faces charges of aggravated stalking, aggra-vated assault with a weapon and violating an injunction. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility but has since been released on $12,000 bond By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City man faces assault charges with a dead-ly weapon after he allegedly hit a man in the face with a stick then rode off on a lawn mower. Robert Joseph Vaughn, 54, 223 NW Kobie Way, was arrested Thursday. According to the Columbia County Sheriffs Office arrest report, Vaughn drove a lawn mower into Johnny Gaines yard, walked up to the porch and hit Gaines in the face with a 2-foot-long stick. Gaines, 57, had a swollen, steadily bleeding nose when deputies arrived, the report said. He was taken to Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center. Accordng to the report, Vaughn told Floyd Daniels, who was also on the porch, that Gaines was trying to sleep with his girl-friend. Vaughn admitted to going to Gaines and Daniels residence, the report said, but said he just yelled at them for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend. Vaughn told police the two men yelled rude comments at her. Deputies found a wooden stick in the trunk of Vaughns car. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of a $30,000 bond. He faces charges of aggravated battery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Brown Vaughn By DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comGray clouds and wet weather did not deter Riders with Caring Hearts from revving the engines and riding for charity Saturday morning. The All Gave Some, Some Gave All ride to benefit American Legion Post 57s Veterans Service Officers fund raised $6,230. Some of the money came in $10 at at time, but local busi-nesses donated to the cause as well. At 11 a.m., about 100 motorcycles took off from Rountree Moore Toyota, 1232 W U.S. 90, and drove about 47 miles around the county. The ride had been set for 57 miles but was shortened as a concession to the rain. Columbia County Sheriffs Office deputies led the way in a sheriffs office sports utility vehicle. The Florida Highway Patol blocked off U.S. 90 while the riders passed. Were just helping out, Lt. Mark Boatwright, of the FHP, said. Blocking some intersections for a good, worthy cause. Bill Huggins, American Legion Post 57 executive board memeber, said the American Legion aids veterans in many ways, and all the pro-ceeds from the ride will go toward helping Columbia County veterans. In the economy today there is so much need out there and so few resources, he said. So we put together a ride to help the veter-ans. This was the first mid-year ride Riders with Caring Hearts organized. Usually, the organization holds a ride at Christmas time to raise money for the Christian Service Center. Kay Daly, executive director of the Christian Service Center, and volun-teers from the center helped with registration of riders. We are happy to support not only the veterans, but the Riders with Caring Hearts with what they are doing here for the veterans ride, she said. We will be back here in November for the toy ride. Daly said everybody has a good time on the motorcycle rides, but when asked if she was going to ride too, Daly gave a nervous laugh and said no. Huggins said that they will make a push for Daly to ride during the Christmastime fundraising event. Maybe at Christmas I will try it, Daly said. While Christian Service Center volunteers signed up the riders, bik-ers started to line up in the parking lot. They stood around talking and looking at each others rides. Arjay Alkire was there to ride for veterans and all the men and women who are currently serving in the military. His father, a veteran, died 10 months ago. Attached to the back of the bike, was his parents American flag that always hung on their boat, the Sea Pearl. While Alkire said he never served but considers himself a proud American. Riding a motorcylce is a symbol of freedom, he said. Alkire said he thought about his father, the veterans and all the service men and women while he rode his Yamaha through Columbia County. It means everything in the world to me to ride for our veterans, Alkire said. Thats why Im here today, to ride for my father, and not just him but all veterans and those that are still currently in the service.DEREK GILLIAM/ Lake City ReporterRiders with Caring Hearts had about 100 motorcycles tour Columbia County Saturday despite wet weather.

By AMANDA WILLIAMSON email@example.com A Lake City registered nurses license has been suspended by the Florida Department of Health after officials said she abused various drugs. Stormy Brooke Waldron, 401 SW Ramon Court, was diagnosed with opi ate dependence, marijuana dependence, alcohol depen dence, as well as bensodi azepine and psycho-stimu lant abuse by experts from the Intervention Project for Nurses. Ms. Waldrons contin ued practice as a regis tered nurse presents a risk of immediate serious dan ger to the health, welfare and safety of the public, the emergency suspension of license report by the Department of Health said. On Sept. 30, 2010, Waldron contacted the intervention agency at the direction of her former employer, Gainesvillebased North Florida Regional Medical Center. The agency monitors the evaluation, treatment and care of impaired nurses with random drug screen ing. In November 2010, a doctor diagnosed Waldron with drug dependence, and she was required to refrain from practice for an entire year. In June 2012, she was cleared to resume nursing. An unnamed employer contacted IPN in April to report concerns that Waldron was once again diverting medicine, spe cifically epogen. Waldron denied stealing the syn thetic protein, but admit ted to intravenous use of Dilaudid, the report said. Following a posi tive hair-sample test for hydrocodone, Waldron was advised to enter a residential treatment pro gram. However, she said she would likely not fol low the recommendation, the report said. An independent medical expert has determined that Ms. Waldron is currently unsafe to practice nursing with reasonable skill and safety, the report states. Therefore, complete sus pension of her license is necessary. 7A .............................................................................................. 7:00 AM 8:15 AM 9:00 AM 1200 N.

Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY JULY 14, 2013 7A By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org More than $1 million from a Department of Veterans Affairs $5.5 mil lion grant will be used in the area for programs designed to help at-risk veterans and their families through homeless preven tion programs. The Department of Veterans Affairs said the funds will be used through the Supportive Services for Veterans Families program, which awards grants to private nonprofit organizations and consum er cooperatives that pro vide services to very low income veteran families living in or transitioning to permanent housing. Vianne Marchese, chief of community care services with the North Florida/South Georgia Veterans Health System, said Meridian Behavioral Healthcare will be the local grant provider and was awarded just over $1 mil lion with a target to serve 325 veteran households with the funds. Meridian Behavioral Healthcare will provide the services for Columbia, Alachua, Bradford, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Levy, Suwannee and Union counties. We really view them (Meridian Behavioral Healthcare) as being our partner who will be tar geting some of our rural, outlying areas, where this will be a much needed ser vice, Marchese said. She said the Supportive Services for Veteran Families program can pro vide a range of services. The services can help pre vent veteran homelessness and ensure health and sta bility. Funds are also avail able to help veterans with employment and educa tion opportunities as well as educational supplies. Funds are also available to veterans and their fami lies to help defray start-up costs such as security and utility deposits. According to data col lected during a Jan. 27 homeless veterans street count, there were a total of 177 homeless veterans in the Columbia County coalition, which includes Columbia, Hamilton, Lafayette and Suwannee counties. Marchese said the statistics were based on a one night count for any given night in Columbia or the other surrounding counties. Of the 177 veterans on the streets, an estimated 150 were reported to be without shelter. The local homeless veterans num bers have decreased, based on information from the 2011 count, when there were 241 reported home less veterans listed. Weve seen some pret ty significant progress to go from 241 to 177, Marchese said. This is the national programs third year. Last year Veterans Affairs pro vided about $100 million to assist approximately 50,000 veterans and family members. Marchese said the grant funds will make a differ ence in the services that can be provided to local veterans. I think this grant will really offer a big difference for some of the things that we would, in partnership with the community, that we will be able to do for veterans, Marchese said. Every area within our primary service area has a partner that has been funded to provide these services. It opens up a lot of different opportunities and flexibility. Partners with the gov ernment have more flex ibility in how they can implement services and help. Sometimes we with the VA, have been able to make a lot of progress with getting housing vouchers and transitional housing beds through government programs and our part nership with HUD. These grants really help fill-in some of those critical gaps in terms of providing pre vention and housing sta bility services and helping veterans get moved into housing by getting them some money for deposits for utilities and things like that, she said.

The news that Power Country radio is going off the air is distressing in an AM kind of way. The 102.1 WGLC-FMs AM counterpart was WGRO, which in its day was known as 960 in Dixie. Bob Dobelstein was one of the stations owners. Originally from Connecticut, Dobelstein was an All-American football player at Tennessee and met his wife, Betty, in Knoxville. Dobelstein played in the Rose Bowl and in the East-West Shrine Bowl, and is a member of the Tennessee Hall of Fame. He was drafted by the NFL and played for the New York Giants and later in the American Football League of that time. Betty had kinfolks in Lake City and the family moved here where Dobelstein worked with Paul Fikes oil company. Dobelstein bought into WGRO when the headquarters of the station was downtown across from what is now the Court House Annex. You could walk by the studio and watch through the window as the disc jockey played music. WDSR had the rights to the Columbia High football games, and Dobelsteins answer was to emcee the Tiger Breakfast show on Saturday morning out of the Red Barn Restaurant. Dobelstein had a part in the career of Pat Summerall, who will be the subject of an NFL Films telecast in the fall. A crew was recently in Lake City to interview several of Summeralls CHS classmates. Summerall had a five minute or so program on WGRO where he reported scores and sports news. When Summerall left his hometown of Lake City to join CBS, his first job was in radio. The Dobelsteins had three children Anne, who is deceased, Roby, who was MVP on the Tigers football team that won state in 1967, and Libby Clary, who teaches at Richardson Middle School. A lot of us grew up with WGRO and will be sad to see it go.

Trailing 1-0 in the bottom of the first inning, Lake City 10U came up empty after loading the bases with no outs. By the time Lake City got another runner in scor-ing position in the fourth inning, San Jose led 8-0. The Stars added four runs in the fifth inning to bring on the mercy rule. Colby Strickland singled to lead off the fourth inning for Lake City and Wade Skinner singled one out later. After a force out at third base, Travis Dicks produced an RBI-single. Fighting to stay alive, Lake Citys Max Bavar, Ashton Miles and Hunter Scott singled to open the fifth inning. It was the sec-ond hit of the game for Miles and Bavar scored on Scotts hit, but the other two runners were stranded.

Santa Fe no-wake zone activated Zone 5, a 32-mile segment of the Santa Fe River from River Rise within OLeno State Park west to the confluence of the Suwannee River, was activated Friday as an idle-speed, no-wake zone. This area of the river becomes an idle-speed, no-wake zone when the Santa Fe reaches 17 feet as indicated on the Three Rivers gauge, where flood stage is 19 feet. An idle-speed, no-wake zone means a vessel must proceed at a speed no greater than that required to maintain steerageway and headway. At no time is any vessel required to proceed so slowly that the operator is unable to control it or anything it may be towing. FWC officers will be patrolling this area of the river to ensure compliance with the temporary idle-speed, no-wake zone.Suwannee Lake FMA to close The Suwannee Lake Fish Management Area will be closed for renovations this fall. Suwannee Lake, near Live Oak, is a 63-acre lake constructed by the FWC in 1967. A drawdown of the lake level has already begun and boat access may be limited to smaller vessels in the near future. Bag limits and size limits on the lake have been temporarily suspended, allowing anglers to keep any fish they catch until the area is closed. Anglers will still need a freshwater fishing license to take or attempt to take fish unless exempt by law. For details on this project, call the FWC North Central Regional Office at 758-0525.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA s summer continues to dwindle away for students, parents are making plans for the upcoming school year. The Florida Legislature is hoping to help Florida families economically through the Back-To-School Sales Tax Holiday, which will take place Aug. 2 Aug. 4. During this years event, personal computers and accessories selling for up to $750 will be tax free for the weekend. During the tax holiday weekend, there will be no state or local sales taxes due on personal comput-ers and related accessories having a sales price of $750 or less, purchased for noncommercial home or personal use. For the sales tax holiday, a personal computer will be defined as any electronic book reader, laptop, desktop, handheld, tablet, or tower computer, but does not include cell phones, video game con-soles, digital media receiv-ers, or devices that are not primarily designed to process data. The term related accessories includes keyboards, mice, personal digital assistants, monitors (except those with TV tun-ers), modems, routers, and non-recreational software. Ron Feezell, owner of Real Deal Computers, 152 N. Marion Ave., said he plans to bring in additional inventory for the sales tax holiday. I believe the sales tax holiday is going to bring folks into our business, he said, noting his busi-ness sells notebooks, per-sonal computers, desktop computers and laptops. I think the sales tax holiday is definitely going to get people out to shop. I think it was a wonderful idea that they added computers to the sales tax holiday. It will definitely make the business grow and at this time we could use the busi-ness. Michael McInally, owner of The Computer Guys, 1452 SW Main Blvd. Suite 101, said he also plans to bring in additional inven-tory because of the sales tax holiday. We definitely carry a few more computers than we normally do because of the sales tax holiday, he said. During the sales tax holiday, generally people will buy computers either for college and/or for high school. We normally see a lot more purchases of per-sonal computers, lap tops, mainly for that purpose. The Computer Guys sells laptop and desktop computers, tablets and a variety of computer acces-sories. Almost everything that we sell is related to computer accessories, McInally said. Keyboards, mice, modems, monitors, routers everything that is computer-related is eli-gible for the sales tax holi-day, including everything from computer carrying cases to stands anything that is computer or tablet related. Now tablets are also a large part of how people use computers. So we have those as well. McInally said the sales tax holiday is beneficial for local consumers. The sales tax holiday provides local consumers with an opportunity to make bigger purchases, without the seven percent sales tax, so people are just a little more willing to go out and spend money because they are going to save a little bit of money, he said. As in previous tax holidays, clothing and shoes up to $75 will be tax exempt, along with school supplies up to $15. That includes pens, pencils, erasers, crayons, note-books, notebook paper, legal pads, binders, lunch boxes, construction paper, markers, folders, poster board, composition books, poster paper, scissors, cellophane tape, glue or paste, rulers, computer disks, protractors, com-passes, and calculators. The first sales tax holiday in Florida was enacted in 1998, and ran for seven days, from August 15-21 and applied to clothing and footwear valued at $50 or less. In 2010 the sales tax holiday was a three-day holiday from August 13-15 with exemptions on clothing under $50 and school supplies under $10. The three-day tax holiday was repeated in 2011 from August 12-14, with increased exemptions of clothing up to $75 and school supplies up to $15 and in 2012 it ran from August 3-5.

Republicans plan to tackle cuts in food stamp programMARY CLARE JALONICKAssociated PressWASHINGTON House approval of a scaled-back farm bill is setting up what could be an even bigger fight over food stamps and the role of domestic food aid in the United States. Food stamps have been a part of farm bills since the 1970s to gain urban Democratic votes for the rural measure. But that union has soured this year as the food aid has exploded in cost and House Republicans have taken aim at the pro-gram. Normally bipartisan, farm bills have become much less so. Republican leaders in the House won passage of the smaller farm bill on a partyline vote Thursday by dropping a section of the bill that dealt with food stamps, saying they would deal with that issue in a separate bill. After rallying most of his cau-cus to vote for the farm portion of the bill, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., said Republicans would act with dispatch to get a food stamp bill to the floor. It remained unclear what a food stamp bill would look like, how it would move through the House or how quickly law-makers could craft a bill. While Democrats have opposed any cuts to the $80 billion-a-year program, designed to give people tem-porary food assistance when their income falls beneath a certain level, Republicans GOP continued on 2C

Sure, they might go lower but even if you dont get the lowest price, you can still set yourself up for good long-term gains. If all else fails, just go to the beach.

In an industry dominated by snake-oil rem-edies, quick fixes and faddish diets, Weight Watchers clinically proven, decades-old approach to weight loss management and behavior modifica-tion stands apart. On the heels of recent marketing missteps, an ill-timed share repurchase (that ballooned its debt burdens), and broader concerns over the health of its online and meetings businesses, Weight Watchers shares have shed a few pounds roughly 25 percent off 52-week highs, and 40 percent from all-time highs set two years ago. The result: a capital-light business with sustainable competitive advantages, a history of superior returns on capital and excellent cash generation sports a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 10. The stock market has priced Weight Watchers as a business in decline, but its target market is only getting, er, larger. To wit: Accord-ing to the World Health Organiza-tion, worldwide obesity has almost doubled since 1980, and worldwide, more than a billion adults are consid-ered overweight. 2ISKSINCLUDECOMPETITIONWEIGHTr loss drugs and management missteps, but the recent low price seems to have factored those in.

R ecently, I traveled to the country of Trinidad and Tobago to attend the Caribbean Food Crop Society Conference. The experience was a very enlightening cultural and educational exchange opportunity. Two islands make up this small Caribbean country, which is often referred to as T&T. Located just a few miles off the coast of Venezuela, T&T exports gas and oil and is a prosperous country. Although the financial and gov-ernmental differences between Florida and T&T are many, the similarities in agricultural strug-gles of the two is striking. The theme of the conference this year was Agribusiness Essential for Food Security: Empowering Youth and Enhancing Quality Products. Caribbean countries face the challenges that come with importing large quantities of food. Hurricanes and other catastrophic events can leave an island country isolated and unable to obtain the imported food that people rely on. Food security is a very important issue. Our concerns about food security are similar, but the situation is not as life-threatening because we are not isolated. Both locales, however, face the consequences of declining interest in agricultural professions and the aging population of current farmers. We are each finding that our young people dont know where food originates, and they have little knowledge about nutrition. In Florida, it is important that we continue to cultivate a passion for growing and consuming our own local produce. Locally grown food is the freshest and most nutritious, and we can feel more secure in knowing where and how it is grown. Fresh food production in a small island country provides food security and sustainability that will keep it less dependent on other outside supplies. We also share the need to develop agricultural programs in which young people want to be involved. How else will agricultural profes-sions in research, teaching, exten-sion and production ever be filled in the future? Compared to former generations, it is safe to say that the young generation is techy. Programs that enable students to apply their technical knowledge to agriculture and food production are needed for the future of agri-culture in Florida and in T&T. Trinidad and Tobago also fights the constant battle of inva-sive pests, including the giant African snail and the aggres-sive lionfish, both of which have invaded Florida. Although we all are experiencing climate change, the islanders have accepted the fact and are making plans and modifications to cope. People and countries that face such similar problems have so much to share in solving those problems. LIFE Sunday, July 14, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D D uring our Mediterranean cruise, we had the opportu-nity to visit wineries in both Italy and Spain. At the base of Mt. Vesuvius in Italy, in a town called Trecase and in the heart of the Vesuvius National Park, lies Cantina del Vesuvio. It is a fam-ily-owned restaurant and winery that has been in business since 1948. This winery produces Lacryma Christi (Tears of Christ) wines. Upon our arrival, they gave us a short tour through the vineyards. As many wineries as Ive been to, I learned some-thing new a couple of things, actually. First, you often see roses among and near the grape vines. These are planted close by because the insects are more attracted to the flow-ers and, thus, leave the grapes alone. Then, the difference between the red grapes and white grapes by the types of vines: White grapes are usually grown higher off the ground, like on a pergola, and the red grapes are grown on a stalk closer to the ground. There was a separate building or more accu-rately, a veranda for tastings. where we were all seated at a nicely set table. Then the pouring began. The wine boss was quick with the pours, and I actually had to drink fast to catch up. We tasted four different wines: a white, a red, an apricot liquor and a spumante. In fact, when Sue Towns heard the cork on the champagne pop, she looked in that direction and said Hello, friend. It was a very funny moment. I dont think we had any wines or varietals that we didnt like. They also served us fresh-cut toma-toes, bruschetta, cheese and salami. Everything was very good. I loved their pottery, too. The plates and the pitchers I liked so much that I asked if they were for sale. Unfortunately, they were not. In Spain, on the island of Mallorca, we drove about an hour from Palma to the southwest coast to Andratx. The winery there is on the side of a mountain. The drive up required much skill, which fortunately our bus driver had. The views of the valley were gorgeous, and we made it just as it started to sprinkle a bit. It was called Santa Catarina. I learned something else new at this winery: The older the vines, the better quality the grapes. But also they can be less produc-tive. Eventually, they will have to be replanted. Here, some of the vines were about 30 years old, and they would plan to replant Visitingwineries of Italy, Spain Story ideas?ContactRobert BridgesEditor754email@example.com Lake City Reporter1DLIFEBy AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comI magine: Walking across a brick walkway, names stretched out on the ground before you and each one a memory from a time long gone, an era connected by a demol-ished school building that stood as a cultural icon in the community. Richardson High School existed in Lake City from about 1900 until 1975, first as Richardson Academy and later as a school housing primary through 12th-grade stu-dents, said Stanley Lofton, an RHS graduate. Really, you have to go quite a ways back to look at the seeds of educating black children in the South, he said. Richardson High School was a center of cultural change. ... The parents would quickly understand that there was a direct link between education and upward mobility. Some of the parents came from miserable times, and the possibility of educa-tion that was some-thing to be proud of. About three years ago, volunteers from the RHS class of 1971 came up with an idea to create the Richardson Walk, a memorial to com-memorate students and staff from Richardson High School. According to Mario Coppock, Richardson monument project director, construc-tion on the memorial stopped due to permitting and location issues. Now, the committee needs to raise $10,500 to continue work on the project. Approximately $3,500 has been raised already from contributions by the Richardson Community Center/Annie Mattox Monument resurrected JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterColumbia County Commissioner Ron Williams (in white h at) and mason Willie Dixon set a row of bricks on Wedn esday and try to visualize the pattern of a walkway to be built a s part of the Richardson High School monument being ere cted near the Richardson Community Center.

By BRETT ZONGKERAssociated PressWASHINGTON While the Washington Monument is closed for earthquake damage repairs over the next year, 488 lamps will restore the marble towers glow each night on the National Mall. The National Park Service lit up the monu-ment for the first time last Monday evening and will continue to do so each night at dusk. A crowd gathered on the Mall and at the Lincoln Memorial as the park service turned on the lights of a decorative design in sections, starting at the bottom. It took a few minutes for the lights to reach their full glow. National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis and philanthropist David Rubenstein, who donated $7.5 million to fund half the cost of repairs, took part in the first lighting. A blue, semi-transparent fabric has been wrapped around the scaffolding that surrounds the monument as it undergoes extensive repairs of its 2011 earth-quake damage. Architect Michael Graves was commissioned to design a scrim to decorate the monument between 1998 and 2000, when it was last restored. His same design was used this time to exaggerate the scale of the monuments stone pat-tern and the mortar that is being repaired. National Mall Superintendent Bob Vogel told The Associated Press that the lighting marks a milestone in the years-long effort to restore and reopen the monument to President George Washington. We know that our visitors are disappointed that they cant actually go up in the monument, he said. GARDEN TALK Nichelle Demorestdndemorest@ufl.edu Q D.

2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JULY 14, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 2DLIFE By ELIZABETH KARMEL Associated Press It has been years since I learned to make competition-worthy bar becued baby back ribs. And I still consider myself lucky to have learned from some of the best in the business. My first year at the barbecue competition Memphis in May, the head cook from a team called Bubbas Bunch befriended me and taught me to make ribs the same way barbecue great John Willingham did. Willingham was the creator of the amazing allpurpose barbecue rub known as Wham Seasoning. And it is amaz ing stuff. Following my rib tutorial, I made those ribs more times than I can count, and have taught them many times in my barbecue classes. I named the recipe after the team who taught me, and they are perfect for a first-timer. Or if you are like me, it may become your go-to recipe for ribs. All you need are a love of great barbecue and three ingredients meaty baby back ribs, lemons and my Wham-inspired rib rub. You can make these on a gas or charcoal grill or a smoker. If you have never made ribs before, you need to know a few things. Buy a meaty rack with no bone-shine. This means that you should inspect your ribs to see how close the butcher got to the bone when they were cutting the ribs. If you can see a bit of the top of the bone on the rack when it is raw, there isnt enough meat on the ribs. When the ribs are cooked and the meat recedes from the bone, you will have a very bony rack. Make sure you buy racks of ribs that weigh 2 to 3 pounds each. Most recipes will tell you to remove the membrane from the ribs (and I used to do it, too). But the more I cooked ribs, the more I liked leaving the mem brane on the back. One reason is that it holds the ribs together especially important if there is any bone-shine and it also is a good indicator of when the ribs are done. When the membrane pulls away from the back of the rack and looks like translucent parchment paper, you know the ribs are done. If you want, you can remove the membrane before you cut and serve the ribs. When you prep your ribs for the grill, squeeze a lemon over both sides of the ribs to refresh them. That little bit of acid cre ates a brightness, a clean can vas for your seasoning and helps the rub adhere to the meat. Next, season liberally by hold ing your hand about a foot above the racks and sprinkling the dry rub over the ribs evenly, like you are raining rib rub over the racks. Do it no more than 15 min utes before cooking. I like to use a rib grilling rack because it posi tions the ribs so that the hot air and smoke from the closed grill rotate equally around all of the racks of ribs and you can cook twice as many than if they lay flat on the grates. As for the actual cooking, true barbecue demands indirect heat. This is what allows the meat to cook slowly, melting the fat and connective tissue. Barbecue also calls for smoke, so be sure to soak wood chips in advance. You can look for two visual clues when making ribs at home: the meat should pull away from the ends of the bones, which should be dry and dark; and the ribs should bend easily without breaking if you gently fold them over. That covers what you should do. Heres what not to do. First, dont parboil your ribs. It isnt necessary, and it will rob your ribs of flavor. Ribs should only take 2 to 3 hours to cook and they should be cooked from start to fin ish on your outdoor grill. Second, if you are a barbecue sauce lover, only put the sauce on the ribs dur ing the final 10 to 15 minutes of cooking. Otherwise the sugar in the sauce will burn while the ribs are still undercooked. If you follow these tips and the recipe below, you will be amazed at how easy it is to make ribs in your own backyard. All it takes is a little patience and a little love of the game. BUBBAS BUNCH BARBECUED BABY BACK RIBS Start to finish: 3 1/2 hours (30 minutes active) Servings: 8 Ingredients: Wood chips, for smoking For the rub: 2 tablespoons smoked paprika 2 tablespoons kosher salt 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar 2 tablespoons McCormicks Worcestershire Ground Black Pepper Blend (or other black pepper) 1 tablespoon onion powder 1 tablespoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper For the ribs: 4 racks baby back ribs, at least 2 pounds each 2 lemons, halved 1 cup prepared barbecue sauce (optional) Directions: Soak the wood chips in a bowl of water according to package directions. Meanwhile, to make the rub, in a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. If you prefer your dry rubs to have a finer texture, the ingredients can be combined in a spice grinder and ground until fine. Set aside. Any extra rub can be stored in an airtight container at room tem perature for up to 6 months. Prepare the grill for indirect heat at medium-low. You are aim ing to maintain a temperature of 300 F to 325 F. If using a charcoal grill, place the soaked wood chips directly on the hot charcoals. If using a gas grill, place the wood chips in a smoking box and set into the grill. Squeeze and rub 1 lemon half over each rack of ribs. Sprinkle the ribs liberally with the spice rub, then let them sit at room temperature for 15 minutes. Place the ribs, bone-side down, in the center of the cooking grate, or in a rib holder or rack. Grill, covered, for 2 to 3 hours, or until the meat is tender and has pulled back from the ends of the rib bones. Begin checking the ribs after 1 1/2 hours in case your grill is running hot. Leave the ribs unattended and without opening the grill cover for the first 30 minutes. If the ribs start to burn at the edges, stack them on top of one another in the very center of the grill and lower the heat slightly. Ten minutes before serving, brush the ribs with barbecue sauce, if using. Remove the ribs from the grill and place them on a clean plat ter. Let them rest for 10 min utes before cutting into individual portions.

Food Monroe negatives to be auctioned Associated Press NEW YORK Fashion and celeb rity photographer Milton H. Greene was only 26 when he photographed Marilyn Monroe for Look magazine. He went on to take thousands of photos of the Hollywood siren, capturing both her vul nerability and her sex-bomb persona. Now, 3,700 unpublished black-andwhite and color negatives and transpar encies of Greenes Monroe archive are going on the auction block with copy right. They are but a fraction of 75,000 celebrity negatives and slides Greene shot in the 1950s and 1960s that are going on sale July 27 at Profiles in History in Los Angeles and online. Copyrights are included with all the material, which is spread over 268 lots, meaning a potential buyer can print imag es from the negatives and transparencies, sell them and license the material. Its a big, big deal. Its like selling the recipe for Coca-Cola, said Joseph Maddalena, owner of Profiles in History, which auctions original Hollywood mem orabilia and artifacts. Its nearly unheard of in a public venue, particularly for an entire archive, said Christopher Belport, the photogra phy consultant for Profiles in History. MONUMENT: New lights restore allure Continued From Page 1D So, we hope that this will make up for it just a little. It takes several minutes for all 488 lights to come to full power, Vogel said. After the first lighting, sensors will light the monument automatically each night at dusk. Many stones near the top of the monument were chipped or cracked, and mortar was shaken loose during a 5.8-magnitude earthquake that struck Aug. 23, 2011, along the East Coast. Experts have completed a detailed analysis of each stones damage. Now, they are working to ensure that all the repair plans are just right, from the color of mor tar to a process for inject ing a sealant into cracked stones, Vogel said. Within days, they will begin mak ing final repairs, working stone by stone across the surface and inside the obe lisk. The monument is expected to reopen once the repairs are completed in spring 2014, the park service has estimated. In the meantime, the National Park Service is launching a live online EarthCam view of the mon ument and of the National Mall. The monument lighting also marks Rubensteins role in a larger campaign to restore neglected sites on the National Mall, officials said. The co-founder of the Carlyle Group investment firm has joined the non profit Trust for the National Mall as a co-chairman to help raise $350 million to preserve and restore sites in the nations most-visited national park. Hes taking his leader ship role as a co-chair of the campaign for the National Mall very seriously, said Caroline Cunningham, the fundraising groups presi dent.

Associated Press NEW YORK Twinkies dont last forever, but theyll have more staying power than most people remem ber when they return to shelves. Hostess Brands LLC says the spongy yellow cakes will have a shelf life of 45 days when they start hit ting shelves again Monday. Thats nearly three weeks longer than the 26 days the previous owner had stated as the shelf life for Twinkies. A spokeswoman for Hostess, Hannah Arnold, says the change to extend the shelf life was actually made by the old company that went bankrupt, with the longer-lasting cakes first hitting shelves on Nov. 1 of last year. But the old company went out of business and stopped production just weeks after that, meaning the Twinkies most people are familiar with had the shorter lifes pan. Arnold declined to say what changes were made to extend the shelf life, saying that it is proprietary infor mation. The New York Post also reported last week that Hostess will start freezing some of its cakes to extend their shelf life. That means that Twinkies would be delivered to stores frozen so retailers can stamp their own expiration dates on the cakes. Arnold said in a state ment that a select number of retail customers repre senting about 10 percent of its distribution made the request for frozen products. She declined to say which retailers requested the fro zen Twinkies. Hostess shuttered its fac tories in November, after years of management tur moil and failure to reach a contract with its second big gest union. Its brands were sold off to different buyers; Twinkies and other Hostess cakes were purchased by Apollo Global Management and Metropoulos & Co. As to whether the freez ing would affect the taste, Arnold said in a statement that any suggestion that Hostess is changing the integrity of the iconic snack cakes consumers have loved is completely untrue. New Twinkies to last longer ASSOCIATED PRESS Hostess Twinkies will be back on store shelves Monday.
Park North Inc., County Commissioner Ron Williams and architect Tony George. You had to learn, said Williams, a 1962 gradu-ate of RHS. In fact, the [school personnel] accept-ed nothing else. They real-ized that to be successful you had to have a good foundation education-wise, and that foundation was Richardson High School in our community. Although the buildings not there, that foundation still exists. No matter where we go, well always remember our alma mater. Were very proud of it. There was, in fact, a hunger for education, a thirst for knowledge at Richardson High, Lofton said. The school provided a safe, nurturing environ-ment for students to learn. lt ran smoothly for quite a while, and then the tenor changed, he said. In 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Brown v. the Board of Education that racial segregation of schools violated the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Change came throughout the South, Lofton said. Schools that served the black population were phased out. In some of the counties, schools left behind were reno-vated to be used for other purposes. ... Not so for Richardson High School. Richardson High was demolished. The monument will stand as a testament to the old school, allowing future generations the chance to visualize the place where their parents or grandpar-ents earned their educa-tion, said Lynda Caldwell-Elliot of the class of 1971. In the middle of her senior year, students first started getting bused to nearby Columbia High School in the movement toward desegregation in Lake City. Prior to that year, RHS was the only black high school in the area, teaching stu-dents from Columbia and Baker counties. It was a tough transition, she said. It was hard because we looked forward to growing up and graduating from Richardson. Currently, the project stands at the reconstruc-tion phase, Coppock said. Previous work on the walk, which started on land adjacent to the Richardson Community Center reserved for future park-ing, had to be demolished. At the time, concrete had been poured, engraved bricks placed and the skel-eton of a circular fountain constructed. However, local law enforcement warned the committee about poten-tial hazards concerning the fountain. Soon, the brick-work began to crack. With the issues mounting, the project stalled. Now, a new concrete foundation has been placed in the original site of the monument, away from the plot designated as parking space. Foreman Adee Farmer gathered materials and contractors needed to finally finish the monu-ment, including former RHS graduate and profes-sional mason Willie Dixon to handle the brickwork. Due to safety concerns and maintenance costs, the fountain has been deleted from the project, Coppock said. The memorial will feature the Richardson Walk, situated under two walkways, leading to a podium holding a bronze plaque engraved with a dedication to the school. Four benches will sur-round the podium, he said. We had some teachers out here that were instru-mental in teaching us that we needed an education to better ourselves, Dixon said. We passed that on to our children to let them know just how important this was in our upbring-ing. As part of fundraising efforts, engraved bricks are being sold for $55 apiece. Newly purchased bricks will be added to walk once a year after the project has been completed. To date, 243 alumni and supporters have purchased bricks for the Richardson Walk. Coppock hopes to have the project completed by the Richardson Round-up on July 26-28, if the weath-er permits. This is part of our community, our legacy, said Farmer. Its rich in tradi-tion. The schools known throughout Florida... Ive had a chance to give back to that legacy. If you would like to make a contribution or purchase a brick, contact Alvin Baker at (386) 365-1446.

By KIM COOKAssociated PressHomeowner Christine Igot knows one thing for sure. I will not have a fridge in my kitchen ever again, she says firmly. In the new house shes building, in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, the 51-year-old is putting the refrigerator in a pantry off the kitchen and will double insu-late the walls. Why? All that noise, noise, noise. Her present house has an open plan, and the sound of the fridge drives her crazy. I tried to get used to it. I had an appliance man come to see if it was running properly. It was it just emitted a high-pitched whine. Roxanne Went uses her car as a cone of silence to escape the noise of leaf blowers outside her suburban West Chester, Pa., home and of family members blaring music inside. For baby boomers, noise matters. Decreased tolerance for loud sounds is a fairly common symp-tom of age-related hearing loss, as the range of comfortable lis-tening levels seems to shrink, says Ted Madison, an audiologist in St. Paul, Minn., and a represen-tative of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Beyond creating stress and annoyance, loud noises can cause hearing loss, according to experts. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health reckons that noise over 85 decibels may cause hearing loss. So what are the loud products we live with at home? According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, based in Rockville, Md., the very loud range includes blenders, blow dryers, vacuum cleaners and alarm clocks, all in the 80to 90-decibel range. Extremely loud in the 100to 110-deci-bel range are snow blowers, gas lawnmowers and some MP3 players. In Brighton, England, a Noise Abatement Society fields com-plaints from citizens about annoy-ances ranging from neighbors power tools to barking dogs to wind chimes. Managing director Poppy Elliot says her team decid-ed to channel the collective angst over unwanted noise into Quiet Mark, a seal of approval they give to products designed to be qui-eter. So far more than 35 products have received the designation, from hair dryers to commercial tools, and Eliot said the organiza-tion is expanding globally. The ultimate aim is to encourage industry across the board to put a high priority on factoring in low noise at the design stage. Investment in acoustic design and sound quality of a product should be just as important as energy efficiency or visual design, Elliot says. Manufacturers are responding to concerns about noise with new, quieter products. LG has several including the TrueSteam dishwasher that use a direct-drive motor, an alter-native to the noisier belt-and-pul-ley system of traditional motors. Swiss-based Liebherr uses low-sound dual air compres-sors and cooling circuits in their high-end fridges. And Samsungs dishwasher has extra insulation, which cuts the sound. Range hood fans can often by noisy. Italian firm Falmec makes a line that uses a perimeter extraction method rather than one single vacuum vent; the air is drawn evenly into the hoods edges more quietly than being sucked straight up. Jerek Bowman, a chef in Toronto, recommends sous vide cooking, using a thermal circula-tor and heating the food in water, as a quieter way to go. Theres simply no noise. You can use it the same way you would for roasting, stewing or braising, he says. A side benefit? With the equivalent of only a light bulb to heat the water, theres some energy savings as well. Food processing pioneer Magimix has a new multi-tasking mixer that chops, slices, whisks, grates, kneads and mixes all in one machine, and does it qui-etly with an induction motor. Induction motors, which dont use stiff brushes to transfer elec-tricity, mean a weightier but qui-eter appliance. Rowentas noise-reducing inventions include the Turbo Silence home fan and the Silence Form Extreme vacuum cleaner, which emits a decidedly timid 65 decibels. Electroluxs Ultra Silencer canister vacuum comes in at 68 decibels.

TRAVEL: Winery visits Continued From Page 1Dan acre at a time after this years harvest. After this brief explanation of the vineyards and a quick tour of the vat room with its stainless steel tanks, we headed to the tasting room. It was magnificent and totally different from what we experienced in Italy. The large, dark room was filled with barrels and bottles and just had the best ambiance. We tasted at our own barrel with bar stools, and were able to visit some of the other rooms where they stored the bottles and had pri-vate functions. Not only did we get to taste four different wines but we also tasted their olive oil and marine salt. The white wine was made from a Muscat grape, which normally we dont like because its too sweet, but this one we liked. Then there was a ros, followed by two reds. All were good. We also very much liked the salt, it was rose-mary flavored. We bought some of it and a bottle of wine to enjoy later. Two very different experiences, but you cant go wrong with wine, no matter where you are. Q Sandy Kishton is a freelance travel writer who lives in Lake City.

DEAR ABBY: I am a 58-year-old woman who would like your take on a problem I have with sev-eral married female friends and my married sister. During the many years I have been close to these couples, the women seem unable to have one-on-one conversations, outings or a lunch date with me without including their husbands. Several times after making a lunch date, one friend, unbeknownst to me, has called her hus-band and invited him as well. Another friends hus-band never seems to allow her to talk to me alone, and will even be on speak-er or another phone listen-ing -again, unbeknownst to me until he suddenly says something. My sister will not read her emails from me, but instead has her husband read them aloud to her while shes doing some-thing else and then dic-tates a few words to reply to me with. Consequently, I stopped emailing her and told her why. There is nothing I would say to these ladies that I wouldnt want their hus-bands to hear, but can you tell me why certain women feel a need to include their spouses in their female relationships in this man-ner? At the very least, I feel it is extremely rude. -FRUSTRATED WITH MY BFFs DEAR FRUSTRATED: Your friends may assume that you like their hus-bands company as much as they do. They may feel that because they tell their spouses everything, their menfolk might as well hear what you have to say directly from you. Or their husbands may be retired or semi-retired and have no social lives of their own. Of course, the way to get a direct answer to your question would be to ask THEM why they do this, and because you feel it is rude, you should tell them. As to your sister, she may be too busy with household chores to read your emails and reply to them, which is why she has her husband read them to her, or you may have sent more than she can handle. Not sending her any more emails is not the solution; telling her how you feel might be. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: Last year a neighbor confided to me that she had been sexually assaulted. In an effort to both show and invite com-passion, I told her I empa-thized with her because I had been assaulted on mul-tiple occasions as a child and teen decades ago. I have now learned that this woman has told other neighbors that I had sex with a lot of men, but she failed to put it in the con-text that I was a child vic-tim of multiple predators. What are your thoughts on this matter? -RE-VICTIMIZED DEAR RE-VICTIMIZED: You have every right to be angry with the blab-bermouth. Because the word is out, set the record straight with the neighbors who were kind enough to tell you your confidence wasnt respected. And in the future, I wouldnt blame you if you avoided the woman who started the rumors whenever possible, and let her know why. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Think before you speak.
