By JIM SAUNDERS and AMANDA WILLIAMSON TALLAHASSEE — Saying the state needs another source of natural gas, Florida Power and Light Co. contracted on Friday with two companies to extend a natural gas pipeline through 16 Florida counties and potentially across the Ichetucknee River — despite growing area concern for the Columbia County spring. Combined, the pipelines would cost more than $3.5 billion and will bring natural gas from a facil-ity in Alabama to a hub in Osceola County and then deliver part of it to an FPL power plant in Martin County. Officials said the pipe-lines also would offer gas sup-plies to other electric utilities and industries, with FPL an “anchor” customer. The plans come as FPL and other electric utilities become increasingly dependent on natural gas to fuel power plants. Florida has two major pipelines serving the central and southern parts of the state, but FPL officials say those pipelines are near capacity. “Natural gas is vital to the reliability and affordability of elec-tricity in our state,” FPL president Eric Silagy said in a prepared statement Friday. “Although Florida has essentially no natural gas reserves, many areas of our country have a wealth of supply. This project is not only about FPL and our customers. Increasing access to clean, efficient, U.S.-produced natural gas will benefit the entire state.” However, Three Rivers Estates resident Judy Hagg doesn’t see the benefit in this instance. The proposed pipeline right of way covers her entire 3.3 acres and runs down the middle of her neighborhood’s Central Avenue. “I know about the ecology here. I know about my sinkhole, and I know about the springs,” she said. “I hope to God they don’t get the [pipeline] through... Get it out of the middle of our subdivision, and get it away from the rivers and springs.” FPL spokesman Richard Gibbs said the exact route hasn’t been decided yet, but the company doesn’t determine the route. Sabal Trail Transmission LLC, which is owned by Spectra Energy Corp., has been responsible for laying out the route. According to Hagg, members of the recently formed Ichetucknee Alliance seem concerned about the current pipeline path, which runs through the southwestern corner of Columbia County and directly across the Ichetucknee River. “The Ichetucknee Alliance By STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreporter.comThe Lake City-Columbia County Historical Museum at 157 SE Hernando Ave will be closed until Sept. 6 for repairs, according to its president, Sean McMahon. “There are several small projects we need to get done,” McMahon said. “Just little things that need to be repaired,” such as the museum’s air conditioning and roofing. According to McMahon, the museum gets few visitors during the time leading up to Labor Day, because of both the summer heat and the fact that volunteers who staff the museum like to travel this time of the year. He also wanted to reassure everyone that the museum is not going through any financial problems. “We’re also getting ready for the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Olustee in February,” he said, “It’s going to be big.” He declined to comment further on the nature of the projects being planned because “nothing’s official yet.” CALL US:(386) 752-1293SUBSCRIBE TOTHE REPORTER:Voice: 755-5445Fax: 752-9400 Opinion ................ 4ABusiness ................ 5AObituaries .............. 6A Advice & Comics ......... 8B Puzzles ................. 2B TODAY IN PEOPLE Budding ninja practices.

Statewide, the number of schools receiving F grades doubled, while the number of A schools plunged by 19 per-cent. In Columbia County, seven schools received lower grades, three schools remained steady and one school improved. “We can make no excuses for how our students have scored,” county School Superintendent Terry Huddleston said. “We just have to continue to push and improve. ... The stan-dards are more difficult. That’s OK. We will meet them.” According to Kitty McElhaney, assistant super-JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterVisitors play in the Ichetucknee Springs on Friday.

That effectively hands a permanent red card to a group of local adult players who used to hold pickup games at Southside Recreation Complex Tuesday and Thursday eve-nings for years. Michael Myers, parent and former captain of Fort White High School’s soc-cer team, was displeased by the move. “It’s upsetting, honestly, to see that kind of stuff,” Myers said. “I grew up on those fields since I was 5 years old. You’re telling me I can’t just take my son out there to play on the fields? I just want him to grow up loving the game like I did.” He also claimed that senior members of the CYSA threatened to call the police on players using the fields without the associa-tion’s permission.

AROUND FLORIDA Friday: 1-4-29-43 10 Friday: 10-14-15-28-29 Saturday: Afternoon: 9-7-8 Evening: N/A Saturday: Afternoon: 3-8-6-2 Evening: N/A Wednes day: 4-8-15-16-32-52 x2 Annual grades for state schools fall sharply TALLAHASSEE, The number of top-rated schools in Florida fell sharply again this year as the states students strug gle to adjust to a wave of new standards. And the bottom line could have been much worse if state education officials had not adopted a last-minute safety net provision that softened the final grades. The new A to F grades released Friday for elementary and middle schools show that the number of A-rated schools fell nearly 39 percent this year, while the number of F-rated schools more than doubled. Grades for high schools wont be released until late this year. Last year, more than 1,200 schools received the A grade that is used by parents and businesses to identify top-rated schools. This year, the preliminary grades resulted in a drop to just 760 schools with A grades. Top education offi cials insisted that the changes that kicked in this year including a raise in required writing test scores led to the dramatic decline. Other recent changes include incorporating results from new end-of-course exams. This years school grades are indicative of the fact that Florida has continued to raise stan dards, said Education Commissioner Tony Bennett. Each year, the state hands out A-to-F grades that are used to reward top schools and sanction those that get failing marks. Lower school grades dont reflect a drop in achievement by students, said Andy Ford, president of the Florida Education Association. They are the result of numerous chang es in the grading system. Gunman kills six before being shot HIALEAH A man set fire to his South Florida apartment, killed six people, and held another two hostage at gunpoint for three hours before a SWAT team stormed the complex and fatally shot him Saturday, accord ing to police and witness accounts. Pedro Vargas, a 43year-old resident of the apartment building, set a combustible liquid on fire to start the blaze Friday evening, police spokesman Carl Zogby said. The building manager and his wife noticed smoke and ran to the apartment. Vergas came out and shot several times, killing both of them, according to the police account. Vargas then went to his fourth-story balcony and fired 10 to 20 shots in the street, killing a man who was parking a car outside, Zogby said. Then, Vargas went down to the third floor, kicked the door in on another apartment and killed a man, his wife and their teen daughter. Police said he forced his way into an apartment and took two people hostage at gunpoint. A crisis team was able to briefly establish com munication with Vargas. Sgt. Eddie Rodriguez said negotiators and a SWAT team tried talking with him from the other side of the door of the unit where he held the hostages. Rodriguez said the talks eventually just fell apart. Officers stormed the build ing, fatally shooting the gunman in an exchange of gunfire. Harry Belafonte joins protesters TALLAHASSEE Singer and entertainer Harry Belafonte on Friday called on Gov. Rick Scott to listen to protesters who are asking for a special legislative session to exam ine the states self-defense laws after the acquittal of George Zimmerman. Protesters have occu pied the Capitol since July 15 or three days after a jury cleared Zimmerman of charges in the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The group wants Scott to call a special ses sion so legislators can change the states conten tious stand your ground law but Scott has stead fastly refused. Belafonte who had never been to Tallahassee previously joined the protest on Friday after noon. The 86-year-old celebrity said the sight of the protesters makes my autumn heart dance like it was spring. Belafonte said Scott still has a chance to act before the protests intensify and the situation becomes ungovernable. The main group leading the Capitol protests the Dream Defenders have maintained a constant presence for 11 straight days. While protesters come and go during the workday, a small band of them has spent every night sleeping in the hall ways since the protest began. FDLE has spent nearly $51,000 on overtime costs since the protest began. The state has spent more than $140,000 on overall security costs over the 11-day period but that includes normal security expenses. School money means tax hikes TALLAHASSEE Florida Gov. Rick Scott and state legislators have traveled the state this year boasting about the extra money they steered toward schools and teach ers. But for some hom eowners, more money for schools comes with a price: A tax increase this fall. The complicated for mula used by the state to match local property tax dollars with state money has required a tax increase for nearly 20 out of the states 67 school districts. NASHVILLE, Tenn. G arth Brooks is a grand daddy. The country music superstar acknowledged in a statement Friday the birth of his first grandchild, Karalynn, who was born to his daughter August earlier this week.

August was the second to graduate from high school and Brooks says hes consid ering a full-time return to recording and performing when his youngest, Allie, graduates from high school next year. Our childrens lives have always been extremely private and they have been endlessly encouraged to be their own people, he said in the statement. We have always wanted them to be individuals and not be known as someones daughters. I have been amazed and grateful how the press has always respected this. I now ask that respect to please continue as this young family begins the greatest days of their lives. NBC to air Hillary Clinton miniseries BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. NBC says its planning a four-hour minise ries about Hillary Clinton. The project, titled Hillary, will star Diane Lane, the network announced Saturday at a session of the Television Critics Association. The role of former President Bill Clinton has yet to be cast, NBC said. The miniseries will recount the life and career of the former first lady and secretary of state from 1998 to the present. NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt said the air date has yet to be determined. But he said it would likely air before Clinton might declare her candidacy for the Democratic nomination for presi dent.

By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comSwimmers dotted the Ichetucknee State Park head-spring Friday afternoon, their relaxed bodies buoyed by the water. From the middle of the spring, a mother called to her daughter sitting on the rocky edge. Barely acknowledging her mother’s call, the child’s hands danced after the silver slivers of fish beneath her. Though the scene played out like a normal summer’s day, con-troversy bubbled beneath the sur-face. Before the start of this year’s tubing season, the park added fill dirt to the walkway leading from the parking lot to the headspring. But the rainy months of June and July followed closely after, caus-ing the beige sugar sand to wash into the Ichetucknee headspring. As the sand pools into the water, it causes a cloudy, milky appearance, similar to when a large group of people stirs the floor of the spring. Concerned citizens raised the alarm, vocal-izing possible detrimental effects of importing sand into the area. Photographs were sent to the Lake City Reporter showing a cloud of dirt floating in the spring during a recent rainstorm. However, Ichetucknee Springs park manager Mebane Cory-Ogden said the fill material, brought by from a local compa-ny, helped cover exposed roots that posed a safety hazard to the incoming summer visitors. As far as Cory-Ogden can remember, this is the first time foreign sand has been added to the area, but it was needed, she said. The project was intended to help curb erosion along the dirt trail leading to the springs. “Anytime you bring in a loose material, there will be some migration,” she said. “Truly, nature itself will have things go into the springs. Of course, any-time anything goes toward the spring, there’s a concern.” The park staff implemented management practices to control the flow of the sand, adding wood planks along the edge of the path. In theory, the planks would keep the sand from flowing down the trail and into the springhead, but Cory-Odgen said she knew the planks wouldn’t completely stop the water. Patches of sand in the vegetation along the path show that the planks can really only stop so much, especially after recent tor-rential downpours. The question was raised whether the park selected the best time of the year to add the sand, as the start of spring season precedes the wet summer months. “There was no way to know what nature was going to bring as far as rainfall and the amounts,” said Russell Simpson, ombuds-man for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection Northeast District. “The answer to your question is that safety of our visitors is paramount for the entire Florida state park service.” Simpson added that DEP wouldn’t do anything to harm to the naturalness that is a part of the state’s park systems. Former Ichetucknee park ranger Rick Hughes said any of the park rangers will tell you that there’s an erosion problem at the park’s north end. While he was employed, the staff was not allowed to move soil from one part of the park to another for fear of cross-contamination of the soil. However, the material used at Ichetucknee — called “archer fill” — doesn’t even come from the state park’s property. “It’s loose dirt that runs right down into the spring,” he said. “Because there’s always been an erosion problem, I don’t under-stand why they brought in fresh sand before they fixed the prob-lem.” During the past 10 years of Hughes’ employment, he assist-ed in a project that cleaned the Ichetucknee springhead of excess sand using 5-gallon buckets. He estimated the spring started at 13 feet deep, and ended at 35 feet deep. “We were pretty much successful, and now there’s new sand coming in,” Hughes said. According to Cory-Ogden and park biologist Ginger Morgan, the fill material and the pit it came from are clean, to the best of their knowledge. However, in light of citizen concerns about the fill material carrying contami-nants, the park staff has asked that the company send over a test sample of the sand. Ichetucknee Springs State Park staff is aware of the erosion problem occurring at the north entrance, Cory-Ogden said. A long-term goal of the staff is to permanently fix the issue. DEP funded an erosion control project to stop future problems, so the park can stop importing for-eign material. The design process has already started, Cory-Ogden said, with the DEP Bureau of Designs and Construction leading the way. The project is intended to minimize all impacts on the natu-ral environment at the park. will fight if [Sabal Trail] thinks they are going to run the pipeline under the Ichetucknee River,” she said. Hagg plans to demand the pipeline be re-routed around the river and her neighborhood, and she thinks there will be a large outcry in support of the area’s well-known spring. The pipelines need state and federal regulatory approvals and would not start operating until 2017. FPL proposed another pipeline plan that the state Public Service Commission scuttled in 2009, but FPL vice president Mike Sole said the new project is dif-ferent from the earlier pro-posal — in part because the earlier line would have been built primarily to serve FPL. “There’s tremendous benefits to the state as a whole and natural gas users of this state,’’ Sole said of the new plans. FPL announced in December that it was seek-ing proposals from pipe-line companies. The proj-ect is broken nto two seg-ments, with one running from Alabama to Osceola County and the other run-ning from Osceola County to Martin County. The roughly $3 billion northern segment would total 465 miles, includ-ing 214 miles in Florida. It would start at a site in Alabama where natural gas comes from differ-ent parts of the country. FPL’s parent company, NextEra Energy Inc., and Texas-based Spectra Energy Corp. would enter into a joint venture on the pipeline. Gas would go to an Osceola County hub, which also would tie in with other pipelines. A NextEra Energy subsidiary would then own and operate a new, 126-mile pipeline that would go to an FPL plant in Martin County. That pipeline is estimated to cost $550 million. In all, FPL said, proposed corridors for the pipelines include parts of 16 counties. For the northern pipeline, those counties are Madison, Hamilton, Suwannee, Columbia, Gilchrist, Levy, Alachua, Marion, Lake, Sumter, Orange, Polk and Osceola. For the southern pipeline, they are Okeechobee, St. Lucie and Martin, along with Osceola and Polk. The proposed corridors are about 600 feet wide. The exact routes of the pipelines will be deter-mined after surveying is finished, according to FPL. The pipelines would be buried underground. Officials said they expect much of the proj-ect to be built in existing utility easements or rights of way. David Shammo, a vice president of Spectra Energy, said building in such areas can minimize environmental effects. In an FPL news release Friday, Audubon of Florida executive director Eric Draper said his group pro-vided guidance about the proposed route and FPL had worked to “avoid sen-sitive habitats.” Utilities have increasingly shifted in recent years to natural gas from burn-ing coal and oil. Powering plants with natural gas is cleaner, which helps utili-ties meet environmental standards. Gas also has been relatively inexpensive — a sit-uation that utilities expect to continue with the extrac-tion of gas from shale for-mations in various parts of the country. Shammo said the northern pipeline would carry natural gas that comes from Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma and that it also could include gas from Ohio and Pennsylvania. Much of Florida’s natural gas sup-ply currently comes from the Gulf of Mexico and Mobile Bay. Jim Saunders is a staff writer for the News Service of Florida.

P re-9/11, most Americans would have been horrified to learn that their gov-ernment was vacuuming up and filing away their phone records -who they called and how long they talked -and listening in on those phone calls that caught the spy agency’s attention.... On Wednesday two of the strangest coalitions ever to come together in the House tangled over legisla-tion to rein in NSA’s surveillance program. An amendment to the defense bill by brash Republican upstart Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., 33, who reg-ularly votes against the GOP’s estab-lishment leadership, and Rep. John Conyers, 84, a pillar of the liberal Democratic establishment, would have barred the NSA from collecting the phone records of individuals who are not under investigation. They were backed by an assortment of libertarians, anti-big gov-ernment Tea Partiers and liberal Democrats. They were opposed by President Barack Obama, House Speaker John Boehner, who usually doesn’t vote, Democratic former Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the national intelligence establishment. The final vote to save the program, 217 to 205, reflected Congress’ deep ambivalence over it. Opposing the program were 94 Republicans and 111 Democrats; favoring it were 134 Republicans and 83 Democrats. Amash vows the battle isn’t over.... Congress may get a second crack at it if Obama carries through with a threat to veto the entire $598.3 billion defense bill over issues unre-lated to the eavesdropping.F lorida Power & Light announced Friday it had finalized a deal with Sabal Trail Transmission to build a natural gas pipeline down the Florida peninsula in order to meet the growing demand for energy in the Sunshine State. It appears a new pipeline is badly needed, as current transmission lines are nearing capac-ity. Problem is, it also appears the new pipeline may be routed directly under our own Ichetucknee River. No one knows for certain, as the route isn’t yet set in stone. However, residents of Three Rivers Estates, who live in the area, are none too happy with the prospect. They are right to be concerned.As are we all.The Ichetucknee is the crown jewel of North Central Florida, and must be preserved against environmental intrusion of any kind. We are already in the process of lobbying the state Department of Environmental Protection for our share of $10 million in state funds for a project to reduce pollutants and contaminants there. It’s not at all clear why we need a 36-inch pipe carrying combustible gas running direct-ly beneath a site we’re working so hard to save. Surely there’s an economically feasible way to pipe natural gas down south without tunnel-ing under one of the most beautiful spots on the planet – and a major economic driver for the entire region to boot. We will be watching this matter closely.We suggest you do the same.I would like to thank the Lake City Reporter for publishing their article on Sunday, July 21, about the proposed 36-inch natural gas transmission pipeline that would impact our area if approved. My husband Donald and I have been Florida residents since 1957. We purchased our property here in Columbia County in 1990. We built our house in Three Rivers Estates in 1994. I have never written a letter to the editor or spoken out at any pub-lic meeting before, but I feel like I must speak out now about this issue. My husband and I first heard about the proposed pipeline when we received a letter from Sabal Trail Transmission LLC on June 18, stating it was a follow-up letter to the first letter, dated June 3 (which we had not received). I called and requested a copy of the first letter and asked several questions about the proposed pipeline. Within a cou-ple of weeks, I received a copy of the June 3 letter, followed by phone calls from two company representa-tives, John Hern and Bill Mauser. I spoke at length with both gentle-men regarding my concerns about the proposed pipeline route. On July 7, I received another phone call from Bill Mauser, asking if he could meet with my husband and me at our home the next day. We spent quite a bit of time express-ing our concerns. All of the people I spoke with at Sabal Trail were very courteous and helpful. I spoke with many of my friends and neighbors living in and around Fort White and Lake City. None of them had heard anything about a large gas transmission line possibly coming through Columbia County. Apparently, the only property own-ers in Three Rivers Estates who were informed about the pipeline were those who received letters because their property falls within Sabal Trail’s study corridor. On July 11, I visited the Lake City Reporter office and spoke with a reporter who did not know about the pipeline, either. I provided him with the information I had gathered. On July 17, I went to the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce, hoping to contact someone with The Ichetucknee Partnership, a volunteer organiza-tion that works to protect and pre-serve the Ichetucknee River. They said they would pass the informa-tion on. I then proceeded to the Suwannee River Water Management District office in Live Oak, where I talked with Brian Kauffman, senior engineer, who was gracious enough to use his lunch hour to listen to all I had to say. He also told me he knew nothing about the pipeline, but would check it out. I don’t know if our county commissioners or the Fort White Town Council members were aware of the pipeline pro-posal, but thanks to the Lake City Reporter article, they and other concerned residents will know about this issue. I lived in Pensacola for 38 years and enjoyed my home being powered by natural gas. I am not opposed to natural gas pipelines. My objection is where this pipeline will go. One of the stated goals of Sabal Trail is to have the least amount of impact on homeowners in the path-way of the pipeline. Why then are they even considering putting the gas line straight through the middle of our subdivision down Central Avenue, which has more than 200 separate parcels of land. The environmental study form asks if we have a well or septic tank on our property. The entire subdivi-sion is based on private wells and septic tanks. There are no public water or sewage hookups available. The survey will also look for evidence of wetlands. Are they not aware they are going through a major flood plain? Directly across the street from our property are several land parcels that have many springheads that flow when the Santa Fe River is at normal to high-normal levels. At the river’s edge is a named spring – Sunbeam Spring, listed in the United States Geologiocal Survey Florida Survey Bulletin #66. As to archeological concerns, on our corner of Central Avenue, there is an active sinkhole that fills up from underground every time the Santa Fe floods. When we first moved here, we wondered why so many people would be walking up and down in front of our property after heavy rains or flooding. They told us they were searching for arrowheads because that sinkhole had been known to spew out many arrowheads in previous floods. Farther down Central Avenue, there is a dip in the road that is actually the spring run bed of Jamison Spring. Jamison has many small, bubbling springs that form Jamison Spring Run, which runs across Central Avenue and then to the Santa Fe River. Numerous arrowheads have been found there, too. Jamison Spring was believed to have been one of the small encamp-ments of the Timucuan Indians. The only arrowhead I ever found was dug up by a raccoon next to my front stairs. Last of all, when I was shown the map of the proposed pipeline follow-ing Central Avenue, I asked where it was to go when it reached U.S. 27. I was told it would go west, pos-sibly under the Ichetucknee River. We already have a cement plant located not quite four miles from the Ichetucknee that almost every environmental group in the state opposed, unsuccessfully. Please, Columbia County residents, voice your concerns and opinions on this proposed pipeline before it’s too late. We need to pro-tect the Ichetucknee River and its fragile ecosystem. It belongs to all of us! Let’s ask Florida Power and Light to spend part of the $3 billion this pipeline is going to cost to re-route it around our beautiful Ichetucknee River.

Myers believes other wise, but refused to elabo rate as he didnt want to name names. The associations reason ing, according to secretary TD Jenkins, is to safeguard the soccer fields against overuse and vandalism. Its like farming, Jenkins said. You might have 40 acres of land, but you can only raise so many cows on it. The soccer portion of the complex hosts events year round. The facility is used for games by the asso ciation, Lake City Middle School, Richardson Middle School and Columbia High School, among others. We have around 1,500 playing with our association this year alone, Jenkins said. Accommodate any more players and the fields would be overused and in poor condition, according to association president Scott Everett. We have an obligation to make sure its being pre served for the people who pay for it, Everett said, referring to the parents and sponsors who pay nominal fees to the nonprofit asso ciation for their children to play. Everett and Jenkins both claimed that lighter-weight children do less damage to the fields than heavier adult players. But Myers argued otherwise. Were all experienced players, Myers said. We have the coordination to play on the field without tearing it up. Children are more likely to dig their feet into the grass and kick up divots. The non-affiliated players argue that the facilities are paid for with taxpayer dol lars and that entitles them to use the supposedly pub lic facilities as they see fit. However, its not that simple. On July 2, the CYSA entered into an agree ment with the Columbia County Board of County Commissioners, the body that owns not only the soc cer facilities but the entire sports complex. The agreement is a twoyear lease giving the asso ciation the authority to regulate and maintain the soccer portion of the facility as it sees fit. Rent is waived on the condition that all income is used to maintain the facilities. The agreement under lines the fact that equipment on site, such as goalposts and bleachers, were pur chased by the association without any public funds and that anyone wanting to use the facilities must obtain permission from the association. However, the fields themselves are maintained by the county. According to County Manager Dale Williams, $64,000 of public funds was used recently to re-sod the fields. Such an expenditure is well outside the nonprofit associations approximate ly $20,000 bank account, according to its May bal ance sheet. According to Jenkins, the association needs every penny considering recent thefts including golf carts, speaker systems, comput ers and concession stand materials. Another major issue sur rounding the fields closure is the thorny topic of legal liability. Before the July 2 agree ment, any injury on the facility grounds would most likely lead to the county being named as a defen dant in a lawsuit, according to Williams. But with the CYSA, all players registered in their recreational league have insurance coverage that protects the county against liability for injury or moles tation during a sanctioned event, including practice and games. All adults who volunteer as coaches or staff with the association must pass a background checks before working with children. Parents might drive by and see all these people not registered with us play ing on our fields, Everett said, and will automatically assume theyre all with us and have got background checks. I think its ridiculous, Myers said. Its not like were cussing, drinking and doing drugs or anything. We even bring out trash bags to clean up when we go and play. Why would they threaten to call the cops on us? Williams feels that if an individual or organization called police to complain about unaffiliated players using the fields, not much is going to happen. The officer would just politely ask them to leave the fields, Williams said. Its only if they were being a regular nuisance that we could charge them for tres passing. He wanted to make it clear that hes not in the business of making people upset. Everett claimed none of the independent players has come forward to try and work out a deal with CYSA. But that might be chang ing soon. Myers said he is trying to amass an army of disgruntled parents and citizens. Williams mentioned that he and the board of com missioners are considering expanding access to publicuse recreational facilities, but added that nothing has reached a level of specif ics yet. I do understand the argument from both sides, he said. Lets see if we can bridge the problem. 7A C U L L I G A N W A T E R S O F T E N E R S A L E A L L W A T E R S O F T E N E R & R E V E R S E O S M O S I S D R I N K I N G S Y S T E M S O N S A L E N O W P R O T E C T Y O U R H O M E F R O M H A R D W A T E R B A D T A S T I N G W A T E R & O D O R C a l l N O W f o r a F R E E N o O b l i g a t i o n I n H o m e W a t e r T e s t 8 0 0 2 3 3 2 0 6 3 C u l l i g a n N o r t h F l o r i d a c o m D e a l e r p a r t i c i p a t i o n m a y v a r y L i m i t e d t i m e o f f e r N o t v a l i d w i t h o t h e r o f f e r s S e e d e a l e r f o r d e t a i l s 2 0 1 3 C u l l i g a n I n t e r n a t i o n a l C o m p a n y D e a l e r p a r t i c i p a t i o n m a y v a r y L i m i t e d t i m e o f f e r N o t v a l i d w i t h o t h e r o f f e r s S e e d e a l e r f o r d e t a i l s 2 0 1 3 C u l l i g a n I n t e r n a t i o n a l C o m p a n y F R E E I N S T A L L A T I O N &$2 0 0 O F FO n t h e p u r c h a s e o f a n y C u l l i g a n W a t e r T r e a t m e n t S y s t e m R E N T A C U L L I G A N S Y S T E M F O R A S L I T T L E A S$9.9 5P E R M O N T HF o r t h e f i r s t 3 m o n t h s o n t h e r e n t a l o f a W a t e r S o f t e n e r o r D r i n k i n g o r D r i n k i n g W a t e r S y s t e m C U L L I G A N O F O C A L A 1 9 2 0 S W 3 7 t h A v e O c a l a F l 3 4 4 7 4 MAKE THIS YOUR HEALTHIEST SUMMER EVER JOIN TODAY & THE REST OF THE SU MM ER IS FREE GET A TOTAL BODY WORKOUT IN JUST 30 MINUTES.

Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY JULY 28, 2013 7A FIELDS: Youth soccer association angers some adults by closing fields Continued From Page 1A GRADES: County schools results similar to those elsewhere in state Continued From Page 1A intendent for curriculum, assess ment, accountability, technology and professional development, county school grades followed a trend that occurred statewide. Westside Elementary and Pinemount Elementary kept a strong grasp on their A rankings, both holding steady since 2010. Five Points Elementary earned a C, the same grade it has earned since 2010. Niblack Elementarys grade rose to a C from last years D ranking, which pleasantly sur prised McElhaney. Melrose Park Elementary fell from a B to a C; Eastside Elementary School fell from an A to a B; Fort White Elementary fell from an A to a B; Summers Elementary fell from a B to a C; Columbia City Elementary fell from an A to a B; Lake City Middle fell from a B to a C and Richardson Middle fell from a D to an F. Shining Star Academy earned an F for its first year of opera tion. Overall, the districts grade remained the same as last year, despite the decline in grades for seven of its schools. The district earned a C. As a last-minute attempt to ensure stability in school grades, the State Board of Education implemented a policy that kept schools from dropping more than one letter grade during this time of transition. The state Department of Education is cur rently moving toward Common Core State Standards, a more rigorous form of instruction than the current Next Generation State Standards. Floridas teachers and educa tors are the nations best, and they have consistently improved the results of students in prepar ing them for a brighter future in college and careers, said Gov. Rick Scott. By maintaining stability and high standards as we transition to Common Core State Standards, we are send ing a clear signal that Floridas students will be prepared for success. However, many Florida super intendents, Huddleston included, believe the grading system has been changed so many times in recent years that it is no longer measuring what its supposed to. No superintendent is against raising the standards and having accountability, but there has to be some sensible way to measure and one that gives us a confi dence in the system, Huddleston said. Eastside, Melrose Park and Fort White all benefited from the decision restricting drops to one letter grade. However, Huddleston doesnt trust the cal culations. Those teachers did not teach any less than the year before, he said. In fact, they taught harder than ever. A school thats habitu ally been an A falls all the way to a C. How do you explain that? Though McElhaney attempted to calculate school grades prior to their release, Huddleston said this year she couldnt make firm predictions because of the difficulty in calculation require ments. The FCAT 2.0 writing stan dard used in school grade calcula tions was changed to 3.5, up from 3.0 last year, according to the state Department of Education. Schools must show that their lowest performing students are making progress in reading and math. Schools with less than 25 per cent of their students scoring grade level or higher in reading automatically got a one-lettergrade reduction. New achievement levels also were set for FCAT 2.0 science and end-of-course exams in biol ogy and geometry. However, Huddleston attributes Richardson Middle Schools fail ing grade to a recent upheaval of instructional support personnel in the school. Principal Angela Coppock did not rehire a signifi cant number of teachers she felt were ineffective, he added. As the school district moves into the new school year, Huddleston said he intends to focus faculty in-service instruc tion on a county level, instead of at the individual school level. Inservice instruction is the process in which the teachers acquire new teaching strategies and learn how to transition to the common core standards.

By BRANDON FINLEY DELAND After three days in the mid-Florida sun, Fort White High returned home late Friday from the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Football Camp. Head coach Demetric Jackson felt good about the way the Indians competed during the camp and said that Fort White came out ahead in most contests. But coming out ahead in the summer is just the beginning. The Indians must now take the tools they gathered from the FCA camp and build some thing for the 2013 season. That begins on Monday when the Indians have a chance to take a look at some of the film from this years camp. Its a big advantage to come in and correct our mistakes, Jackson said. We basically got six games in when you break it down into 30-minute sessions. Thats great compared to the other teams that arent getting those reps. Thats two days packed with contact for us. By BRANDON FINLEY After a recent health scare Columbia High head coach Brian Allen has been think ing a lot about the future. On Friday, he had a chance to peek into the future at the Brian Allen Future Tiger Football Camp. More than 100 future Tigers showed up for the football camp Friday morning for the four-hour session. Its just a way of us giving back as a staff and a pro gram, Allen said. It lets people see how we do this thing. It gets them excited about getting older and having a chance to play for the Tigers. Its important for me and my staff. With over 100 kids on a Friday, I feel we got a pretty good turnout. The camp was not only a peek into the future for the coaching staff, but a peek behind the curtain for the campers. The first thing they got to see was the highlight tape Lake City Reporter SPORTS Sunday, July 28, 2013 Section B Story ideas? Contact Tim Kirby Sports Editor 754-0421 1BSPORTS Dr Ro bert J.

The team is seeking donations to help cover expenses. For details, call Faye Jones at 344-1498.Q From staff reports S am Markham died last week and received a lot of tributes. Markham also was special to me, in a multi-generational way. My mother, Blanche, taught Markham in the fifth grade and he always told me she was his favorite teacher. He signed the guest book at Mama’s viewing and wrote, “My fifth-grade teacher. I love you.” Mr. Markham taught me Algebra in the eighth grade at Lake City Junior High and I was in his 8-4 homeroom. When we would meet through the years, he would often bring up 8-4 winning the intramural basketball championship that year. We did have future Columbia High great Scooter Houston leading the team. The final was played in front of the student body on a court that used to be on the stage behind where the school board now meets. Mr. Markham helped Rich Rawleigh coach the Falcons football team. I was a struggling player and Markham said to hang in and that he was a late bloomer in the sport. Sure enough, Markham is not listed on the CHS football roster in the record book compiled by Morris Williams and Shayne Morgan until his senior year. That would be the football season of 1954 when the Tigers turned around the 1-8-1 record of 1953 to a sterling 9-0-1 undefeated mark the next season. Jim Reeves was coach for both teams. We practiced at Memorial Stadium when there were locker rooms under the stands. One day a ninth-grader picked a fight with one of our guys and busted him up. We watched as it went down. That day at practice, Markham almost worked us to death as punishment for our cowardice. His school classes could be hectic. If we failed to grasp the lesson, Markham might throw the chalk or a textbook in frustration. Sometimes he would just sit and read the Good Book. We had a magazine fundraiser at the school, with the homeroom selling the most getting a trip to Marineland. Some students in other homerooms contributed their sales to 8-4 in anticipation of joining in for the trip. When the winner was announced by Principal P.A. Browning at an assembly, he made mention of the ruse and announced that none of the offending students would make the trip. Directly behind me, Markham rose like Burt Lancaster playing Ernst Janning in Judgment at Nuremberg. Markham said he only let the other students join in to help the school and would match the trip money and donate it to the school. Browning said no and Markham, as he sat down, muttered an expletive and a threat to quit. It was tense.Audrey Clements came to the room to talk to him, and dismissed all of us students. We never knew what happened, but when we made the trip other students were on the bus. Markham’s fishing prowess was well documented, but I remember him as being a good bowler. Also, he was early into weight training alongside fellow Tigers Wayne Hollingsworth and Wink Criswell. Markham epitomized irascibility, but there was goodness behind the gruff.

Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, JULY 28, 2013 3B3BSPORTS CAMP: Columbia players get a taste of coaching Continued From Page 1B INDIANS: Building character at camp Continued From Page 1Bfrom last season and you could hear a lot of ‘oohs and aahs’ from the kids when some of the catches or big hits would go on,” Allen said. “It was fun to see their reactions from last year. Then we took them into the weight room to show them the pride we take in there. I told them how they’ll be in my class lifting weights and then took them into my office. “They got to see our wall of former players and see how we’ve put people into college.” From there, the campers had a chance to see where the Tigers prepare for a game on Friday. “We took them into the film room and then they got a look inside the locker room with the name tags,” Allen said. From there, it was going through an actual summer workout. “We basically took them through what we do on Wednesdays,” Allen said. “Instead of us doing the coaching, the players took over. It was fun to see them pick up on what the coach-es do. We kind of got to sit back and watch.” Allen said he even saw what could be a couple of future coaches. “Roc (Battle) and Trey (Marshall) pretty much took over,” Allen said. “They had a race and an 8-year-old (Damarion Dunnon) won the thing. I about fell over when I saw it. Bryan Williams was pretty fired up coaching. We may have a coach in him. It wasn’t that I always saw me in them, but I saw different position coaches as well.” Allen said it’s all part of the Tigers being a program that is accessible to the public. “We want to have an open door,” Allen said. “This allowed them to come in and ask questions. They get to see the success of the program. It can make them want to be a part of it. They’ll remember these things in the future and the things they did when they were kids at the camp and maybe that will make them want to play.” But it’s not just the contact. It’s also the chance to look at what transpired over the two days and correct the mistakes. “It’s great to do the contact, but it’s bigger to go in on film and correct it,” Jackson said. “We’ll contin-ue to look at it in the fall. It’s such a benefit for us to be able to do this.” Other than the football aspect of the camp, Jackson said there was a lot of team building and the camp even changed one player’s life. “We had a player give his life to Christ at a church service and that was huge,” Jackson said. “We do this football stuff, but commit-ting to Christ is lifelong. It’s more important than a game. “It may not necessarily be giving a life to Christ, but if we can just build character in general, then those are good things.” BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterFort White’s Shannon Showers makes an open-field tackle at the FCA camp on Thursday.JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterYoungsters at the Brian Allen Future Tiger Football Camp s cramble as they compete to see who is the fastest on Friday BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterFort White High’s Cameron White (right) cuts off a block to score a touchdown during a scrimmage at the Fellowship of Christian Athletes camp on Thursday.

By ANDREW MIGAAssociated PressWASHINGTON — Doorto-door mail delivery is about as American as apple pie. With the Postal Service facing billions of dollars in annual losses, that tradition could be virtually phased out by 2022 under a pro-posal in Congress. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Wednesday approved a plan to move to cluster box and curbside delivery, including mailbox-es at the end of driveways. The proposal is part of broader legislation by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chair-man of the oversight and government reform panel, designed to cut costs at the cash-strapped agency by up to $4.5 billion a year. The Postal Service had a $16 billion loss last year. The bill was approved on a party-line vote, with 22 Republicans for and 17 Democrats against. Postal Service spokesman David Partenheimer said the agency would evaluate Issa’s bill based on whether it would enable the agency to make $20 bil-lion in savings by 2017. “The Postal Service looks forward to working with Chairman Issa and the committee to improve the bill as it makes its way through the legislative pro-cess,” Partenheimer said. The agency has been moving toward curbside and cluster box delivery in new residential devel-opments since the 1970s. The Postal Service in April began deciding whether to provide such delivery for people moving into newly built homes rather than let-ting the developers decide. “A balanced approach to saving the Postal Service means allowing USPS to adapt to America’s chang-ing use of mail,” Issa said. “Done right, these reforms can improve the customer experience through a more efficient Postal Service.” About 1 in 3 mail customers has door-to-door deliv-ery, Issa said. The shift would include safe and secure cluster box deliv-ery areas, he said, espe-cially for elderly customers who receive Social Security checks and prescriptions through the mail. About 30 million residential addresses receive deliv-ery to boxes at the door or a mail slot. Another 87 mil-lion residential addresses receive curbside or cluster box delivery. By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVARAssociated PressWASHINGTON – You may have heard that shop-ping for health insurance under President Barack Obama’s health care over-haul will be like using Travelocity or Amazon. But many people will end up with something more mundane than online shop-ping, like a call to the help desk. Struggling with a deadline crunch, some states are delaying online tools that could make it easier for consumers to find the right plan when the mar-kets go live on Oct. 1. Ahead of open enrollment for millions of unin-sured Americans, the feds and the states are investing in massive call centers. “The description that this was going to be like Travelocity was a very sim-plistic way of looking at it,” said Christine Ferguson, director of the Rhode Island Health Benefits Exchange. “I never bought into it.” “The bottom line is that with tight timelines ... states have had to scale back their initial ambitions for Day 1,” said Paul Hencoski, leader of KPMG’s government health practice, which is advising nearly 20 states. “A lot of the more sophis-ticated functionalities that might have been offered through the Web are being deferred to later phases.” When the markets first open, Hencoski said, “there will be a significant amount of manual processing of things that will later be automated.” Translation: emails, phone calls, faxes. The Obama administration, which will be running the markets or taking the lead in 35 states, has yet to demonstrate the technol-ogy platform that will help consumers get financial help with their premiums and pick a plan. Officials say they always envisioned people would be able to apply in a variety of ways, from online to the mail. About 7 million are expected to enroll in the marketplaces by next year, and the administration says consumers will be pleased with the experience. Also known as exchanges, the markets are sup-posed to transform the way individuals and small busi-nesses buy private health insurance by increasing transparency and compe-tition, bolstering govern-ment oversight of insurers, and injecting hundreds of billions of dollars in tax-payer subsidies. The experience will be more like buying a new car than snapping up airline tickets on Travelocity or electronics on Amazon. “Consumers see this as a serious product, and some-thing that requires a seri-ous amount of research,” said Julie Bataille, over-seeing the outreach effort at the federal Health and Human Services depart-ment. “It’s something they see in a more serious way than (buying) an airline ticket.” It’s a complicated transaction with different com-ponents, including arrang-ing financing and picking the right product, each with its own choices and trade-offs. You may need a glossary of health insur-ance terms. And there’s another layer. One part of the process involves applying for fed-eral benefits — with con-sequences if you lie to the government, or maybe just make a mistake. Another involves using your federal subsidy to pick the right insurance plan from among compet-ing carriers and four cover-age levels: bronze, silver, gold or platinum. You’ll log on to the marketplace in your state, or the federally run exchange, and set up a personal account. You’ll enter infor-mation about yourself and your family, including Social Security numbers and household income. The exchange will shoot your data to something called the “federal data ser-vices hub,” an electronic clearinghouse that pings Social Security, Homeland Security and the Internal Revenue Service to verify your personal details. The IRS will calculate the maximum health insurance subsidy that you’re entitled to. It’s set up as a tax credit, so the taxman can come back to collect if you claim too much. Discrepancies between the information you submit and what’s in government records will take time to straighten out. Once you’ve got your subsidy nailed down, then you’re ready to pick a plan. Once you do that, the U.S. Treasury will send your insurer a payment on your behalf, and you’ll pay any difference. Coverage begins Jan 1. Experts say the technology to facilitate online shopping among health plans is difficult to engi-neer. Some online tools are getting pared back and the refusal of congressio-nal Republicans to provide more implementation funds for “Obamacare” probably isn’t helping. Some examples: — The Rhode Island marketplace will postpone a fea-ture that allows consumers to enter the names of their doctors and instantly find out what insurance plans they accept. Consumer advocates say such a tool is important to help win-now choices. Instead, shop-pers will be steered to the doctor directories of indi-vidual plans. The federally run marketplaces will also lack “all-plan” doctor direc-tories. — The marketplace in Washington state is delay-ing its online-chat capabil-ity, as well mobile device features that would enable consumers to check their enrollment status. “These are some of the top items that we will focus on for the next version,” said spokes-man Michael Marchand. — The Minnesota exchange is delaying a fea-ture that would allow con-sumers to update their cov-erage to reflect life events such as the birth of a baby because that information won’t be needed right when sign-up begins. — It’s unclear how sophisticated online cal-culators will be at helping consumers pick the best-value plan. For the feder-ally run exchanges, offi-cials said the calculator will automatically subtract the consumer’s tax credit from plan premiums — a help. But it won’t provide an esti-mate of likely out-of-pocket costs that the plan doesn’t cover, a feature consumer advocates say is closer to the true bottom line. State officials say things will improve as the new program takes root. With time, “it’s going to get a lot more user friendly and effective,” said Ferguson, the Rhode Island director. “Were there things I would have liked to see delivered on Oct. 1 that are going to be delayed? Yes. But is that something that I think is horrible? No.” LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, JULY 28-AUGUST 3, 2013 3C3CBiz NOT LIKE TRAVELOCITY A new take on insurance markets ASSOCIATED PRESSThis photo taken Wednesday, July 24, 2013, shows Christine Ferguson, director of the Rhode Island health insurance e xchange taking part in a meeting at the Statehouse in Providence, R.I.

Snack-sized servings of fresh fruits and vegetables will be delivered to the class-rooms at two Columbia County elementary schools throughout the upcoming school year in an effort to promote healthy eating and nutri-tion awareness. The U.S. Department of Agriculture Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program touches 226 elementary schools in Florida, includ-ing Niblack and Five Points elementary schools here. While Niblack’s stu-dents have received the fresh snacks for the past two years, Five Points will join the program this year. “It’s showing there are good, tasty snacks that don’t come in a bag,” food service director Donna Coughlin said. “It’s a treat. We introduce children to foods they might not see as early as this.” Snacks arrive at the classroom during a set time, and are prepared appropriately for the food. Tiny ranch dress-ing packets accompany vegetables, such as cau-liflower, broccoli and radishes. Coughlin likes to feature Florida fruits and vegetables, selecting the produce based on season. During the spring, the stu-dents bite into an assort-ment of fruits — blueber-ries, watermelon, strawberries — but the winter months tend to feature more vegetables. Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Program vet-eran Marilyn Gassett said the produce opens the children’s eyes to new and different things. At Niblack, the children look forward to their treats.

2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JULY 28, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-04242DLIFEHAPPENINGS Some weeds are more than just nuisances COURTESYThrongs of music fans crowd the outdoor stage at Sp irit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak during one of its recent music festivals. The p ark was named one of the 10 best music venues in the country by an online music website. A weed is just a poor, misguided little plant that is out of place and growing where we don’t want it. That may sound reasonable, until we call it a “noxious weed.” Now, what are your perceptions of a weed with that name? We often hear terms such as invasive plants, exotic plants and noxious weeds as we become more committed to preserving the legacy of Florida’s natural areas. These terms, however, are not interchangeable, and they can be misleading as we try to under-stand the issues of native plant protection. A native plant is defined as one which was growing in Florida before the arrival of Europeans in the 1500s. The protection of Florida’s native plants is impor-tant to the health of our natural ecosystems and wildlife habitats. The web of life is so intercon-nected that the loss or decline of one species upsets the balance of everything else within that system. Native plants have survived for centuries in their own habitats, and they have been kept under control by weather, insects, disease, fire and other naturally occurring constraints. Exotic plants, also called non-native plants, originated somewhere else and ended up in Florida after the Europeans arrived. Exotic plants include most of the plants that we survive on and that our economy depends on such as citrus, vegetables, fruits and orna-mental flowers. The big threat to Florida’s natural areas occurs when one of those “immigrant” exotics starts to grow out of control, taking over habitats and crowding out native plants that are less aggres-sive. When no insects or diseases keep them in check, they are like the bullies on the block. Have you seen kudzu vines that have blanketed an entire roadside area? Nothing else survives when a bully like that takes over. About a third of the plants growing wild in Florida are non-native, but they are not invasive, either. If a plant keeps spread-ing and expanding its territory in the wild, it usually earns the title of “invasive.” When a state, federal or county government has determined that a plant is detrimental to health, property, wildlife or the environment, that plant earns the title of “nox-ious weed.” A noxious weed is required by law to be managed in some way. There are several plant lists available to alert managers of natural areas to current or poten-tial problem plants. One is the FLEPPC invasive plant list that can be found at Homeowners will find the UF/IFAS Assessment of Non-Native Plants in Florida’s Natural Areas (IFAS Assessment) to be helpful with caring for their urban and rural properties. This list gives plant recommendations based on well documented research and timely updates at Q D.

The website also features a beautiful photo taken during one of the parks festivals and one of Rees Lake with the orange hue of fall upon the cypress tree foliage reflecting on the water. “The forefathers of Suwannee County had a great vision when they chose the location of The Spirit of the Suwannee,” SOSMP president and CEO James Cornett said of the honor. “From hum-ble beginnings to being named in the top 10 most beautiful outdoor venues in the country is quite an honor. “The 700-acre facility overlooking the historic Suwannee River creates the perfect haven for hundreds of thousands of guests to make friends and enjoy some of the highest quality music in a natural outdoor setting,” Cornett said. “We are fortunate to work with some of the most professional and suc-cessful promoters in the music business. We are blessed to have an exten-sive network of friends in our Spirit family who love coming home frequently to commune with nature, enjoy some awesome music and to make last-ing memories,” he added. “Thanks to everyone who participated. We are so grateful for this honor!” The online music review website, created and owned by Ben Hebert, made the announcement July 11. Coueys to celebrate 50th wedding anniversary Keith and Adelaide “Addie” Marcello Couey will celebrate 50 years of marriage on Aug. 4. The couple were married Sunday, Aug. 4, 1963, at Epiphany Catholic Church in Lake City. They have three children: Keith Jr. (Kelly), of Lake City; Kevin (Mary), of Lake City, and Kason of Gainesville. They also have three grandchildren: Kyle, Kristah and Kameron Couey, all of Lake City. Keith is retired from the Florida Department of Transportation, and Addie is retired from the Columbia County school system. Keith and Adelaide celebrated their anniversary in St. Augustine.

Spirit of the Suwannee ranked among best music venues in US ‘Future That Never Was’ looked fantastic By JENNIFER FORKERAssociated PressFlying cars. Waterproof living rooms that you clean with a hose. A pool on every rooftop. Many of the old dreams and schemes about daily life in the 21st century didn’t come true — at least not yet. Author Gregory Benford has gathered them — along with more success-ful predictions — in a book, “The Wonderful Future that Never Was” (Hearst, 2012). Some of the imaginative ideas just weren’t imagina-tive enough, he says. “Failures usually assumed that bigger would always be better — vast domed cities, floating air-ports, personal helicopters, tunnels across continents,” Benford says. Forecasters didn’t realize that being able to invent something wasn’t enough. “Just because high-tech change is possible doesn’t mean we always want it,” says James B. Meigs, edi-tor-in-chief of Popular Mechanics magazine, not-ing the slow-food and hand-made-crafts movements as high-tech counterpoints. “Sometimes affluence gives us the options to choose more traditional things. We choose clothing out of wool rather than synthetics.” Two well-known failures: flying cars and jet packs. George Jetson kissed his wife then flew his car to work in the TV cartoon series launched in the 1960s, while TV’s Buck Rogers thrilled kids of the 1950s by fighting evil invad-ers wearing a jet pack. Such depictions created a hunger for personal fly-ing devices, but that wasn’t enough to make them a reality. “People have produced (both) those,” says Benford. “It’s just that neither is par-ticularly good at being a plane or a car.” A physics professor at the University of California at Irvine and a science fic-tion writer, Benford culled scientists’ predictions from the early 1900s through the late 1960s from Popular Mechanics for this and another book, “The Amazing Weapons that Never Were” (Hearst, 2012). “In the year 1900, everyone knew that technol-ogy drove their world and would drive the future even harder,” Benford writes. “That was the single most prescient ‘prediction’ of the 20th century.” At mid-century, plastics seemed to offer all kinds of possibilities: Take the magazine’s 1950 prediction that housewives in the year 2000 would clean house with a hose. Everything — rugs, drapes, furniture — would be waterproof, and the water would run down a drain in the floor. Among the idea’s many drawbacks, which include how uncomfortable such decor would be, forecast-ers forgot one vital detail: Electricity powers our homes, and it doesn’t mix well with water. Remember how we used to think we’d have robots cleaning clean our homes, cooking our food, tending to our children? Sadly, that one doesn’t look promising, Meigs contends. Robots do fine on an automated factory line with one, simple task, but the home environment requires an adaptability that robots can’t muster. “Getting someone to do the dishes, butter toast, organize the shoes in your closet. Those are doable but really tricky for a robot,” says Meigs. “They have to improvise, and you know if humans are involved, you’ll open the refrigerator and the butter won’t be in the same place.” Yet 50 percent of the predictions that Benford unearthed in the magazine have come true, at least in part. The “picture phone” was predicted in 1956, for exam-ple; see today’s Skype calls on the Internet. And those rooftop pools? They were proposed in 1928 as a way to cool homes. Air-conditioning later proved them unnecessary, but Meigs says the theory behind them exists in prac-tice: as evaporative coolers on home and office roof-tops.

Documentary film looks at SeaWorld’s captive whalesBy NATALIE ROTMANAssociated PressLOS ANGELES — What the Oscar-winning 2009 documentary “The Cove” did for dolphin slaughter in Japan, “Blackfish” may do for killer whales living in captivity while perform-ing at marine parks. “Blackfish,” explores what may have caused Tilikum, a 12,000-pound orca, to kill three peo-ple, including veteran SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau in 2010. News of Brancheau’s death during a show at SeaWorld in Orlando inspired director Gabriela Cowperthwaite to explore what happened. SeaWorld first claimed that the train-er had slipped and fall-en; later, it said Tilikum had been spooked by Brancheau’s ponytail. The director, who has made documenta-ries for ESPN, National Geographic, Animal Planet, and the Discovery and History channels, said it took two years to make the film. She pro-cured footage from local and national newscasts, people’s personal archives, and through the Freedom of Information Act. “It was just perseverance when it came to get-ting footage,” she said in an interview. “I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Once you see that, you can’t unsee it. In my mind that gave me my directive. Now that I know the truth, I have to tell the truth. I didn’t imagine that I was going to be making this film. I thought I was gonna be making a completely different film about rela-tionships with our animal counterparts. So it was really learning through interviews and stuff and seeing footage.” Key footage became public after the Occupational Safety and Health Administration took SeaWorld to court and the images became exhibits in the case, she said. She recruited animalbehavior experts, marine park patrons who wit-nessed whale attacks dur-ing performances and for-mer SeaWorld trainers will-ing to go on the record. “Personally, I started learning stuff about the animals I didn’t know, and I was working there,” said former SeaWorld orca trainer Samantha Berg. Tilikum, born in the wild near Iceland in 1983, was captured and sent to a marine park near Vancouver before he was sold to SeaWorld in Orlando. The film shows divers trapping and kid-napping baby whales for shipment to theme parks while their mothers watched and screeched in agony. ASSOCIATED PRESSThis undated publicity photo released by courtesy o f Magnolia Pictures shows the whale Tilikum in a scene from “B lackfish.”


While the fruit or vegeta bles are being distributed to the students, the teach ers get the chance to edu cate the group about the daily selection. Information may include where the fruit came from, where its grown or how it can be prepared. Strawberries always seem to be the most popu lar, Gassett said. I think if I had this as a kid, I would eat beets to this day maybe, she said. While Coughlin sub mitted four schools in Columbia County for the program, only Niblack and Five Points met the qualifi cations. The schools must be elementary schools with a high percentage of stu dents on free and reducedcost lunch programs. Also, the school must be in a district that participates in the National School Lunch Program, as well as submit an annual application. Five schools were also selected in Alachua County for the program. However, Union County, Suwannee County, Gilchrist County and Hamilton County did not have any participating schools. The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program began as a pilot project created by Congress in 2002. It provided funds to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables in four states Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Iowa. The following school year, Congress elected to expand the program and make it permanent under the National School Lunch Act. That year four states were added. In 2008, the program went nationwide, finally reaching Florida. According to Coughlin, the program is meant to combat childhood obesity by teaching healthy eating habits. The district receives $50 per student each school year to purchase a variety of produce, which currently comes from Gordon Food Service or KCs Produce. Coughlin plans to serve the snacks three days a week until April. Many students do not have the opportunity to try certain products, and this program gives them the chance. By modeling eating hab its in school, the education creates healthy behaviors, Coughlin said. Putting it all together helps children connect the dots, she said. Then they can take the information home to mom or dad... For really exotic items, parents might not run out and get them. But were serving items that may be routine to parents or older kids, while the younger kids havent had the chance to taste them yet. Five Points Principal Terri Metrick agrees with Coughlin. According to her, the children at Five Points will be excited. Instead of a sugary treat, its a healthy snack, she added. Not every child will always have a healthy snack. Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, JULY 28, 2013 3D 3DLIFE Madison-Rose R eading can enhance childrens social skills. It is proven that children who are readers tend to explore their imaginations. Reading helps children with understanding things like how to turn pages, respond when spo ken to, to name familiar pictures and so on. Reading not only helps children, but it also creates a place for them to escape. When I read, I can imagine the settings and the characters in the book. When I was young er, I refused to read. I made every excuse not tp read. My mom would not take no for an answer. The first chapter book I read was the first Harry Potter: Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone. My mother made me sit and read to her. Now, if you asked me back then if I liked to read, my answer would have been no. But now I read all of the time. In fact, my mom has to take my books away to get me to stop. Children these days do not like to read because its bor ing or there is no need. With electronics all around us, people would rather text or be on Facebook than explore their imaginations through a good adventure book. I am working on my Girl Scout Silver Award right now, and our project is to create mobile librar ies in our community to improve childrens literacy. Our goal is to have this project completed by the end of the summer. We hope to get people in the com munity involved by donating books to this project. We are very grateful to those who have already donated books, and to the various businesses that are supporting us by letting us use their establishments to display our bookshelves. Kayla H unger Games, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, these are all book series that children and teens are reading. Well, should be reading. But child illiteracy is becoming more and more common. According to research done by the National Assessment of Adult Literacy (NAAL) two out of every three children that are not reading proficiently by the end of fourth grade end up in jail. That could be your child, or your nextdoor neighbor. Did you know that one in four children will grow up not knowing how to read? If an average class size is 20, then five of those students cannot read. Thats five children, five people who our future depends on, and they are completely illiterate. Not only is our problem that children cant read, its that they refuse to. Why would they if they can play video games all day? This leads to another ter rifying fact. Statistics say 50 per cent of U.S adults cannot read on an eighth-grade level. Half of the United States population of people 18 years and older cannot read over an eighth-grade level. I dont know about you, but this scares me. To help increase childrens literacy right here at home, three Girl Scouts from my troop are creating mobile libraries to put throughout the community as our Girl Scout Silver Award project. We will be partnering with local businesses throughout town to have bookshelves strate gically located. You will be able to take a book and return it to any of the locations, take anoth er, so on and so forth. Keep your eyes out for them as the summer comes to a close! Cathleen C hildhood illiteracy is a problem in the United Sates. 33 per cent of fourth-grade public school stu dents read below grade level. I believe that this is something we need to fix. Some kids only get to read at school. They dont get to go to the library often, and many arent as lucky as I am to own a lot of books. Fifty-three percent of fourthgraders read for fun, but only 20 percent of eighth-graders read for fun. Because children dont have the opportunities to read more, they are turning more and more to their phones and iPods for entertainment. Eventually, reading for fun is weird and not cool. Kayla, Madison, and I have decided to change that. Weve chosen to place bookcases and bookends in businesses around Lake City that will be stocked with books aimed at children ages from birth to 10 years old. We are aiming for a take a book-leave a book policy, so that we can have this continue. Places that have said yes so far are Harveys, U Scream Ice Cream and Smoothies, Rupperts Bakery, Champs Pizza, and Terris Sweet Treats. We appre ciate their support. Children who wont read often end up with poor reading skills. I believe reading is an adven ture. Every kid should have the chance to learn to love reading. Every kid should have a chance to read GIRL SCOUT PERSPECTIVE Editors Note: The follow ing column by members of Girl Scout Troop 525 provides a youthful perspective on issues of the day.

TRAVEL: Discoveries in Daytona Continued From Page 1D Robinson to play during the 1946 seasons spring training. Upon our arrival we realized that Ivy Lane was closed between shifts and wouldnt reopen until 5 p.m. It was about 3:30, so we strolled down a few blocks and entered McKs Tavern. This was a cool bar that also had a store with hundreds of craft beers you could mix and match by the six pack to purchase. After perusing the store, we bellied up to the bar. We both settled for a Stella and ordered an appetizer to share. Unfortunately, they didnt offer flights to taste, but our bartender David was most accommodating any time I asked for a taste of something interesting that I found on their extensive menu. After sampling some IPAs, a pilsner and a lager, we began to walk back to Ivy Lane for din ner. On our way, we saw a lot of the stores with sidewalk specials and sales and tastings of their own. We ended up at Yours Truly, a one-of-a-kind gift shop with exceptional service and style. Here, you can have your specialty gifts pack aged and custom wrapped to suit your needs. Susan and I both purchased extra-long-stemmed wine glasses and had them wrapped to bring home. Back at Ivy Lane, we were welcomed by Michael and Mandy. We started off with a glass of wine and shared the best flat bread appetizer. It had goat cheese on it, so I knew we couldnt go wrong with it. While we were enjoying our dinner and conversa tion, someone from the Daytona Music Society came in about setting up one of their all-star musi cians. It was the last Friday in June and we learned that the Front Porch Friday Festival was hap pening. We felt fortunate to have hit upon this won derful experience. Another appetizer of succulent coconut shrimp, then we moved outside to listen to Savannah play her acoustic guitar and sing. She was a beautiful girl of 15 with so much talent. Overall this was a pleas ant side trip off the beach in Daytona and a must do again. Its funny how you learn about new areas that really arent new at all. You just have to take that leap off the beaten path and change up your routine to find those unexpected treasures. Ive been to Daytona many times and stayed on the water somewhere, either on the beach or the intercoastal or was at the racetrack, but never before took the road less trav eled here like I do in most other areas when given the opportunity. I highly recommend Ivy Lane Bistro and Wine Room and McKs Tavern if you have the time, and dont forget to stop in at Yours Truly. Sandy Kishton is a free lance travel writer who lives in Lake City.

DEAR ABBY: My daughter was married recently and has been sending out her thank-you notes. When she checked her registry to determine if all her gifts had been accounted for, she saw that her stepbroth-er and his wife purchased a gift, but it was not mailed by the department store. We’re assuming that it was brought to the wed-ding, but it’s nowhere to be found. How can we resolve this delicate situa-tion? She wants to tell her sister-in-law, but she is concerned it might have been an oversight and be embarrassing. She plans to contact the wedding venue, but it has been three weeks and you’d think if something had been left behind that they would have contacted her. We are also going to check with the friends who packed up the cars. Any other ideas? -STEVE IN FLORIDA DEAR STEVE: Because your daughter knows a gift was purchased by her stepbrother and his wife, she should ask them how it was to be delivered because it might have been lost en route. Such things have been known to happen, which is why it is always wise to request that a merchant provide proof of delivery. That way the recipient signs for the package, and everyone is assured it didn’t “fall off the truck.” ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: We recently moved to another neighborhood. Most of the residents are elderly. Our closest neighbors are a very nice couple in their 70s. We’ve gotten along well, but a problem has arisen and I’m not sure how to handle it. I am a keen do-it-yourself enthusiast. When I get home from work at 2 p.m., I love to go into my work-shop and work on one of the many projects I always have going. I’ll do this for a couple of hours until my wife and kids get home. I admit, it probably gets a bit noisy with all the power tools, hammers, etc., and I usually leave the door open to let some air in. My neighbor approached me today and told me his wife usually naps from 2 to 4 every afternoon, and the noise I make is disturbing her. Until he told me that, I had no idea their downstairs bedroom is only a few feet from our communal fence. (My workshop is right up against the fence.) Would it be rude to suggest she find another time to nap or maybe sleep in another room? I can’t imagine having to sit around and waste time every afternoon waiting for her to finish her nap, espe-cially since she has most of the day to nap while I’m at work. -D.I.Y. GUY DEAR D.I.Y. GUY: I’m pretty sure your neighbor’s wife takes her naps at the time of day when she needs one, and she would be unable to adjust her sleep schedule to accommodate you. However, your idea of suggesting she try sleep-ing in another part of the house so she won’t be dis-turbed is a good one. Or you might agree to a compromise so she starts her mid-day rest period a little earlier, and you start your projects a little later. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): You won’t agree with everyone, but don’t fuss or engage in conflicts. Go about your business and do the best you can. A change of location or get-ting together with people who share your enthusi-asm will lead to good for-tune. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Share your opinions and plans for the future with friends or relatives. You may want to make a couple of last-minute changes, but before doing so, make sure you won’t hurt someone in the pro-cess. Help others by mak-ing unique suggestions. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Rethink your plan of attack regarding your professional pursuits. Look at your work history and remember the people you have worked with and for. It’s a good time to recon-nect or put old skills to good use. ++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Embrace change and you will get a different perspective on a situa-tion you face. Fighting against the inevitable is a waste of time and energy. Live in the moment and enjoy what life brings you. Positive over negative is the answer. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Someone is withholding information. You have to question the motives of the people you are deal-ing with personally and professionally. Avoid secret entanglements. +++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Impulsive spending or offering help to a group or individual without finding out all the facts first will be a mistake. Love is in the stars, along with emotional overspending. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Follow your path, not someone else’s. A change of plans may unnerve you, but you must stick to what works best for you. Look out for your best interests. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You deserve a break. Travel plans or visiting people you love to spend time with will bring new meaning to your personal plans. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Make a resi-dential move and invest in something solid and long-term. Nurture what you already have and exploit your talents, but don’t let someone you love hold you back or put you down. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Don’t let an emo-tional issue ruin your day. Partnerships may be under pressure, but if you com-promise, you can persuade the people who count in your life to see things your way. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): A change in the way you earn your living or the way you handle the beliefs and traditions you were raised with will make a difference to your future. Discipline will help you reach your goals, allowing you to see new possibili-ties. ++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Embrace whatever comes your way and work alongside the people who offer the most promising opportunities. Change is inevitable and compro-mise is necessary, but in the end, it will bring good results. Romance is high-lighted and will improve your love life. +++ Abigail Van THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Whammy5 Where les enfants might play 9 Rendered speechless15 Female lobsters19 Every which way20 Subject for a mariachi band 21 Insubstantial22 Like Voldemort$UWLVWVIDYRULWH spiritual? 26 Ablution, e.g.)LUHILJKWHUVQHHG maybe 28 Summer Olympics host after London 29 ___ vu30 Food item a cook might flip 32 Prescription pain medication 35 Nos. in a directory37 Look for38 Several, in Seville40 Cool with what others are doing 42 Go (for)43 Christmas song line from an artist? 47 Batman villain51 What Mississippi cheerleaders askfor a lot 52 How you might do something gross 53 Cagney or Lacey: Abbr. 54 Daughter of James II :KHUHWKHUHV:L)L availability 57 Get ready to drive)RUPHUVL[WHUP senator fromIndiana 61 More yang than yin: Abbr. 62 Monetary bribes, in slang 64 What a star probably has 65 N.R.A. piece?: Abbr. $UWLVWVIDYRULWH Broadway musical? 70 Revival meeting miracles 71 ___ Zulu (warrior GXEEHG$IULFDVNapoleon) 72 Atlantean superhero of DC Comics 73 ___ Field75 Defrocked villain on %XII\WKH9DPSLUH6OD\HU 76 Vista opener?77 Roman of film81 Michigan college82 ___ generis3DUWRIDQXPSLUHV count 86 Put in writing87 Parts of an orrery$UWLVWVH[SUHVVLRQ IRU6XFKLVOLIH" 92 Easter purchase93 Worth all the hype, as a film 94 Snorkeling aids7VN98 Finger 99 Cuts some slack=HUR'DUN7KLUW\ locale &DVWDZD\V construction 107 Rough position?108 Sedona maker7KH5RPDQZD\112 How the expert artist passed herexam? 7KH&RVE\6KRZ boy 117 Last word in the 7RUDK 118 Rain man?119 Inclination120___ Club5LYHUWKDWVZHDWV RLODQGWDULQ76(OLRWV7KH:DVWH/DQG 122 Predoctoral tests, for short 123 Approximately Down 7DWRRLQHUDFHLQWKH 6WDU:DUVVDJD :KDWVELJDWWKH movies? 3 Like old unrecyclable bottles 4 Certain Jaguar3UHH[DPIHHOLQJ maybe 6 Playground retort6RXWK.RUHDVBBB 7DH:RR 8 Buffet cabinet.H\RI6FKXEHUWV 7URXW4XLQWHWAbbr. 10 Bronze 7RSSHU12 Ancient13 Patchwork quilts have lots of them *RRGSRLQW$UWLVWVOLQHRI weary resignation? 2Q7KLV1LJKWRID 7KRXVDQG6WDUVmusical &DSRQHVWRS henchman 18 Wintry mix24 Flawed, as mdse.3DUW\KRVWV convenience 31 Reposed/DERUDUHBBB RUDUH)UHHPDVRQVmotto) 34 What Morehouse College lacks 36 Before, poetically38 Home of Kings Peak39 Little muchacho41 What the tipsy artist had at the bar? /L]RI*DUILHOG e.g. 44 Pay to cross town, maybe 45 First chimp to orbit Earth 46 Pay to cross town, maybe 47 Pop icon?7KH2GG&RXSOH role 49 Daft3KRRH\*DXQWOHWWKURZHUV challenge 56 What the artist confused peoplewith? 58 Norse source for Loki lore 59 Dash'DLU\FRQVXPHUV enzyme 62 Erotic*RRGZLIHLQ7KH *RRG(DUWK 65 Org. protecting music copyrights &RQJUHVVBBBPDNH QRODZ 67 Actress Hayek69 Prefix with poise74 Pain and suffering*D\FDSLWDO78 Summer lawn sight1HZ-HUVH\VBBB University 4%PLVWDNHV$EEU82 Holy mlle.7XUQWRERQH$SLDULVWVZRH 88 Watchful ones?89 Holy city of Iran90 Access charge, of a sort 91 Debatable sighting93 Words to live by95 Blurts (out)96 ___ yoga97 Arabic name PHDQLQJZLVH 98 J.
