By STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreporter.comA speeding car thief was put behind bars after a brief chase through Lake City, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Around 10:30 a.m. Friday, Joshua Ryan Palmer, 24, of Gainesville, was speeding northbound on Interstate 75, an FHP press release said. When Trooper James R. Taylor attempted to pull him over, Palmer refused to stop and began driv-ing recklessly, the release said. Taylor placed a “be-on-the-lookout” call for the 2006 silver Volkswagen Jetta. Troopers ran the vehicle’s tag and discov-ered it had been reported stolen, according to the release. A few moments later, Sgt. Stephen W. Coody spot-ted the vehicle near U.S. 90 and Real Road and attempted to make a stop, the release said. “I followed him behind the Applebee’s and Moe’s over there,” Coody said. “I tried to sneak up on him, but he spotted me and took off.” According to FHP, Palmer attempted to jump the curb between Moe’s and Waffle House to make an escape. However, the vehicle’s undercarriage got caught on the curb, at which point Palmer fled on foot, the release said. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThird Circuit Judge Paul Bryan sentenced convicted murderer Richard P. Franklin to death Friday for the 2012 stabbing death of Columbia Correctional Institution offi-cer Sgt. Ruben Thomas III. Franklin’s sentencing hearing was held 10 a.m. Friday in Courtroom 2 at the Columbia County Courthouse and lasted more than an hour. Franklin, who was dressed in light blue prison inmate clothing, stoically stood and stared forward as Bryan read the final portion of his 20-page sentencing order. In June, a jury of seven men and five women took about 90 minutes to recommend the death penalty for Franklin, who is a two-time convicted killer. The jury recommended the death penalty by a 9-3 margin. A week earlier, the same jury convicted Franklin of first-degree murder for Thomas’s death. Franklin was also con-victed of felony battery and possession of contraband in a prison. During Friday’s sentencing hearing, the courtroom gal-lery was filled with Florida Department of Corrections personnel and Thomas’s friends and family. Many of the DOC personnel wore their work uniforms and were easily identifiable in the courtroom. Blair Payne, Third Circuit public defender, who By STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreporter.comTwo individuals were arrested in connection with a January motel fire sparked by a love triangle, sheriff’s deputies report. Tykeycia Chariel Hines, 21, of 286 SW Dante Terrace, and Terrance Antron Glover, 27, of 626 NE Davis Ave., were charged in connec-tion with a fire in room 3 of the Sands Motel on East Duval Street on Jan. 20. Columbia County Sheriff’s deputies and the Columbia County Fire Department arrived at the motel, saw flames through the window of room 3 and forced entry into the room to put out the fire, the CCSO arrest report said. Following a six-month investigation, it was deter-mined the fire was started with gasoline, the report said. No individuals were harmed in the fire, which caused approximately $23,000 in damages, accord-ing to the incident report. According to investigators, Hines was involved in a relationship with the room’s occupant, Deandre Sellers, but was afraid he was seeing other women.

Approximately a year ago, the Columbia County School District donated the unit to the town of Fort White. However, due to logistics and funding, the caboose never made it. Through the help of former school board member Glenn Hunter and Columbia County Tourist Development Council executive director Harvey Campbell, the project is moving full steam ahead. W.W. Gay Mechanical Inc. donated its services through Florida Crane Rental, providing a crane and two moving trucks to transport the 50,000-pound caboose to its new location at the Fort White historic train depot. The caboose originally came to the Lake City Kindergarten Center about 40 years ago to provide education and a rec-reational site for the school. Thousands of children explored the caboose over the years, Hunter said.

CORRECTION The proposed changes to the Columbia County Fire Assessments include an additional $11, which is not an impact fee, to help fund the construction and operation of a new fire station north of I-10. A story published in the Lake City Reporter Friday suggested otherwise. The proposed budget entails the construction of three other fire stations that will help Columbia County maintain its ISO rating. AROUND FLORIDA Friday: 18-19-27-35 2 1 Friday: 5-11-21-24-31 Saturday: Afternoon: 4-6-8 Evening: N/A Saturday: Afternoon: 6-8-8-6 Evening: N/A Wednes day: 4-8-17-20-51-52 x2 Speaker wants hearing on stand your ground TALLAHASSEE State House Speaker Will Weatherford is calling for a legislative hearing to review the states stand your ground law. Weatherford made the announcement in an opin ion piece he wrote for The Tampa Tribune that was printed Friday. The Wesley Chapel Republican does not sup port repealing the law that became an issue in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. He also added that he could never envision the repeal of the stand your ground law being passed by the Florida House. But Weatherford said he wants a legislative com mittee to look at whether the law should be made clearer and whether it is being administered fairly. We shouldnt be scared of a debate or having an honest conversation, Weatherford said on Friday. George Zimmerman was acquitted in the death of Martin in July. Zimmerman claimed selfdefense in shooting the 17year-old Martin during a fight; Martins supporters say Zimmerman profiled and followed him because Martin was black. Three days after the acquittal, protesters arrived at the Capitol. They have vowed not to leave until Gov. Rick Scott calls a special session to have legislators repeal the stand your ground law as well as take up other mea sures dealing with racial profiling and the use of zero tolerance policies in the states public schools. The protest at the Capitol and organized by a group called the Dream Defenders started on July 16, and so far, the state has spent more than $100,000 in overtime costs on Capitol security costs. Protesters are allowed to come and go during the day, but they must remain in a designated area in the hallways after hours. Weatherford called the protesters a politically motivated organization and said his decision to call for a hearing was not based on their continued presence at the Florida Capitol. They can stay there as long as they want to or they can go home, he said of the protesters. Interim schools chief named TALLAHASSEE The state board that over sees education in Florida turned to a veteran educa tion official to help deal with the turmoil following the abrupt resignation of Education Commissioner Tony Bennett. State Board of Education members voted quickly and unanimously during a Friday emergency meeting to select Pam Stewart as interim commissioner. But several board mem bers expressed shock that Bennett chose to step down following allegations that he changed the grade of a charter school run by a major Republican donor during his previous job. Some board members also expressed fears that Bennetts departure comes at a difficult time when the state is in the middle of a complicated transition to new tough school stan dards known as common core. Stewart, who is cur rently chancellor of pub lic schools, started her career as a teacher in Hillsborough County in 1975 and has been a prin cipal in Ocala and as well as deputy superintendent in St. Johns County. She served briefly as interim commissioner before Bennett was hired late last year. Man dies while diving in spring OCALA The body of a man who went diving at the Ocala National Forest has been recovered. Jason Yeh was reported missing Friday afternoon. His body was found Saturday morning by members of the Marion County Sheriffs Office Underwater Recovery Team. The 23-year-old from Altamonte Springs had gone diving in Silver Glen Springs. His body was found in an area with lim ited visibility in a cavern. The Ocala Star Banner reports that Yeh was with his girlfriend at the time of the dive. She called 911 after not seeing him for some time in the water. Panhandle to get disaster funds MIAMI Federal fund ing will help communities in the Florida Panhandle return to normal after a major flooding over the July 4th holiday week, state emergency manage ment officials said. Helping communities return to normal after a disaster is our first prior ity and this assistance is an important first step in that process, said Florida Division of Emergency Management Director Bryan W. Koon in a state ment. Gov. Rick Scott announced on Friday that the state had received a Presidential Disaster Declaration to assist counties affected by severe storms and flood ing. Holmes, Walton and Washington counties are covered. The state estimates there was $29 million dam age. Man charged after body found JACKSONVILLE A Jacksonville man has been charged with murder after a decomposing body was found inside a home. Jail records show 27year-old Cedric Dondrell Tate is being held without bond on murder charges and marijuana possession. Jail records do not list an attorney. Tate was arrested Friday after authorities discovered the body of 40-year-old Wilfred Myers Johnson decomposing inside a home. NEW YORK C omic and daytime television host Ellen DeGeneres was picked to host the Academy Awards for the second time. Show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced DeGeneres selection Friday. The movie awards show will air on ABC on March 2. There are few stars today who have Ellens gift for comedy, with her great warmth and humanity, the producers said in a statement. She is beloved everywhere. DeGeneres quipped: I am so excited to be hosting the Oscars for the second time. You know what they say the third times the charm. She also announced the gig on Twitter, posting: Its official: Im hosting the #Oscars! Id like to thank @TheAcademy, my wife Portia and, oh dear, there goes the orchestra. Last years host, Family Guy cre ator Seth MacFarlane, drew mixed reviews for an edgy performance that included a song-and-dance num ber, We Saw Your Boobs, about actresses who had gone topless on screen. He had already taken him self out of the running for a return engagement next year. Academy Awards organizers had hoped to attract a younger audience with MacFarlane, and the ratings showed they succeeded. With DeGeneres, they went for a star that Hollywood and television viewers were familiar and comfort able with. About her first hosting role in 2007, television critic Frazier Moore of The Associated Press wrote that like her, the evening was easygoing, comfortable and relatively unsurpris ing. DeGeneres was nominated for an Emmy Award for her last gig. Her daytime talk show has won 45 Daytime Emmys during a decade on the air. The Oscars, with 40.3 million view ers this year, is very often the years most-watched television event after the Super Bowl. Pacino movie films in middle of concert LOS ANGELES An Al Pacino movie broke out in the middle of a concert by the band Chicago, with thousands of fans serving as extras. Cameras were wheeled onstage during intermission of the groups show at the Greek Theatre on Friday night to film a scene from Pacinos upcoming movie Imagine, in which he plays aging rock star Danny Collins. With coaching from the direc tor, the crowd chanted the name of Pacinos character as the 73-year-old actor walked on stage to sing Hey Baby Doll in a black suit. The movie co-stars Michael Caine, Annette Bening and Jennifer Garner. This is an improvisation, Pacino told the crowd. You just came in and got it. Thats not easy. Chicagos band members remained on stage to watch and clap along during the 25-minute filming. After a few takes, the crowd grew restless and there was scattered boo ing for the real musicians to resume playing. Pacino returned to the stage dur ing Chicagos encore and sang and danced to their hit or 6 to 4. For a shy guy from the South Bronx, this has been great, Pacino said. Billy Bob Thornton to star in Fargo series BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. Oscar winner Billy Bob Thornton will star in the TV version of the film Fargo. FX network boss John Landgraf said Friday that Thornton has signed on to a limited series based on the 1996 crime comedy-drama. Its scheduled for a 10-episode run on FX next spring. Thornton will play a rootless con artist. No characters will be carried over from the film, which brought a best-actress Oscar to Frances McDormand.

“When the [school] changed to the Challenge Learning Center, it really just became irrelevant. It just sat there idly without any care,” Campbell said. But the county commissioners and Fort White had expectations for how they wanted the train depot to develop. Hunter said the town intends to acquire two other units — an engine and a box car — and then transform the depot into a historic museum. “This is bringing a little nostalgia back to the town,” he said. “It’s the perfect opportunity to bring that history to life.” Fort White officials purchased the depot from a Branford feed store within the past decade. The depot used to be located in Fort White, but was relocated — a common circumstance for depots across North Central Florida. Former councilman Truitt George organized its return by obtaining a historic pres-ervation grant from the Florida Department of State. Approximately five years ago, the town reno-vated the depot with the grant money. The county commission then voted to install tracks next to the building. Recently, the commission also agreed to supply $10,000 to help restore the old caboose. According to Hunter, the town and community intend to fix the inside of the caboose over time. “The county commission has been the big play-er in getting this caboose located in Fort White,” he said. The depot sits along the Ichetucknee to O’Leno Trail, a 12-mile paved path that joins Ichetucknee Springs and O’Leno State Park. Harvey believes the depot will become either a stopover or a trail head. Currently, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy lists about 20,000 miles of converted railroad rights of way on their trail maps, consisting of 1,600 preserved gre-enways throughout the country. According to its website, greenways make an area more attractive, provide an environment where people want to live and draw new residents and businesses. “I think it becomes a really good focal point,” Hunter said. “We’ve done several road trips look-ing at other locomotives and continue to look on the Internet. ... It’s got to be the right piece of equipment. It’s got to be affordable and practical to move.” Hunter hopes the new addition to the depot will inspire the town to use the area for civic and recre-ational events. By approximately 4 p.m. Friday, the caboose reached its destina-tion stop in Fort White. Situated on the tracks out-side the depot, it may soon be joined by two other symbols from railroading’s heyday.

Daina Greene, MD Marlene Summers, CNM DEATH: Judge formally sentences Richard Franklin to be exe cuted Continued From Page 1Arepresented Franklin, said he was not surprised by Bryan’s sentence. “It was no great surprise,” he said. “Judges are pretty much bound to follow the jury recom-mendation.” Jeff Siegmeister, Third Circuit state attorney, appeared to be impressed with the way Bryan followed and studied the case before giving Franklin the death sentence. “I have to compliment the job Judge Bryan did,” Siegmeister said. “He demonstrated, last week, that he had read every-thing we presented, he paid attention during the trial and he took copious notes... Personally, if the jury had not recommended it (death penalty), I still think this would have been one of the few cases where a jury override may have been appropriate because of the number of aggravators.” State statutes mandate Bryan evaluate all statutory aggravat-ing factors and all mitigating fac-tors before making his decision on the death penalty. “Judge Bryan found seven mitigating circumstances that ranged from Franklin being shot as a child to having a bad child-hood,” Siegmeister said. “He gave very little weight to some weight for those circumstances... He found overwhelmingly that the aggravating circumstances outweighed the mitigating cir-cumstances, leaving no punish-ment justified other than death.” In the 20-page sentencing order, Bryan went through the facts of the case, specifically elaborating on each aggravat-ing and mitigating circumstance, many times citing legal prec-edents, as a background for his decision. The other factor in the case that was compelling was that a super-majority of the jury rec-ommended death. “This court has found beyond a reasonable doubt the exis-tence of five statutory aggravat-ing factors, including both that the murder was committed in a cold, calculated and premedi-tated manner and that it was especially heinous, atrocious and cruel — two of the most serious aggravators set out in the statutory sentencing scheme,” Bryan wrote in his order. “This court assigned very great weight to those two ‘most serious aggravators,’ great weight to the aggravating fac-tors related to the defendant’s prior felonies (which include a prior first-degree murder), and substantial weight to the remain-ing aggravating factor, commit-ted to disrupt or hinder a gov-ernmental function,” the order continued. “As required by law and articulated in the standard jury instructions, this court has also afforded great weight and deference to the jury’s advisory sentence of death.” Siegmeister described the next phase of the case as the “waiting game,” as Franklin has an oppor-tunity to appeal the court’s deci-sion before his execution. “That’s the way it is in Florida, as long as there’s going to be a death penalty — and I hate that for the (Thomas) family. But by the same token, you never want to be wrong. Siegmeister said right now the average time from a death sen-tence being handed down to the sentence being carried out is around 15 years now. However, he said he expects the Timely Justice Act to speed up the pro-cess and estimated Franklin could be executed in around 10 years. “I give a lot of respect to the Thomas family,” Siegmeister said. “They were here, appro-priately behaved for every court hearing, every day of trial and never missed anything, never acted out and never acted with what would be understandable emotion in an external way. They showed grace that I don’t know I could personally do if it was my family member.” Bryan said the process will be handled in the appropriate amount of time before he left the courtroom. “It’s the court’s intent that the death sentence be carried out with all deliberate speed,” he said. “May God have mercy on your soul, Mr. Franklin. Court is adjourned.” Although the penalty and sentencing phases of the case have been completed, Payne and his staff have additional work remaining in the case, and he explained their next step. “By law, there is an automatic appeal to the Florida Supreme Court,” he said. “Our office is obligated to file the Notice Of Appeal and the public defend-ers office in Tallahassee will be responsible for actually litigating the appeal.” Franklin has 30 days to appeal Bryan’s sentencing judgment and conviction.

I n 2002, the White House and the Navy decided the president should have a new Marine One helicopter. The one he was flying in, and for that matter is still flying in, was based on a design then 30 years old. The Navy began seeking bids for what it called the VXX pro-curement program. A spirited bidding war ensued among the U.S. companies Sikorsky (which had been making the earlier Marine Ones) and Lockheed, the Italian-English firm AgustaWestland, Europe’s Airbus and Brazil’s Embraer. One by one, the bidders dropped out as the White House and Secret Service began adding more specifications to the pro-gram. Among them: crashwor-thiness, a kitchen, state-of-the-art defensive measures such as advanced radar, laser detectors and counter-measures against missiles, and communications systems that would allow secure video-conferencing between the president and advisers anywhere in the world. All of this, of course, costs money. The original develop-ment contract ballooned from $6.2 billion to $11 billion and the cost per presidential helicopter rose to $400 million. As congres-sional critics delighted in point-ing out, that’s more costly than the president’s Air Force One Boeing 747. Because of the cost, Congress canceled the program in 2009. The Republicans had a brief stab at blaming the cost overruns on Barack Obama, who in fact was not yet president. Obama said the existing helicopter seemed per-fectly adequate to him, although, “of course, I’ve never had a helicopter before. Maybe I was deprived and didn’t know it.” Last November, the Navy solicited bids for a new Marine One under the VXX procurement program. A number of aircraft manufacturers expressed inter-est, but by close of business Thursday, when bids were due, all but one had dropped out. That company is Sikorsky, builder of the existing fleet of Marine Ones. Critics claim the specifications had been deliber-ately tailored so only one com-pany fit the bill. The losers are likely to enlist their allies in Congress to reopen the bidding with differ-ent criteria. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who played a key role in killing the original deal, is vow-ing to fight the new helicopter if he finds the plan “unsatisfac-tory.” The first of 21 helicopters are to be delivered in 2020. That means the only way Obama will fly in the new Marine One is as a guest of his successor or, quite possibly, his successor’s succes-sor. Education reform hasn’t come easy to the Sunshine State. The Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test was supposed to usher in a new era of accountability when it was implemented back in 1998. It didn’t work, and FCAT is set to be phased out by 2014. Meanwhile, Florida’s school grading system, which assigns every public institution a letter from A-F, has turned into something of a joke. The scale by which schools are judged has been tweaked constantly – by some counts, 30 times since 2011 alone – making it an unreliable indicator of anything. On top of that, for the second year in a row a safety net was installed to prevent schools from dropping more than one letter grade, no matter what their actual scores. School administrators statewide sought this measure in order to balance what they saw as overly harsh changes to the grading scale this year. Florida Senate President Don Gaetz last week denounced the measure as intellectually dishonest. And then there’s Tony Bennett, who, as education chief in Indiana, changed the grade of a charter school owned by a wealthy donor from a C to an A. The disgraced Bennett resigned as education commissioner of Florida on Thursday after seven months on the job. Bennett was preceded in the top spot at FDOE by Gerard Robinson, who lasted barely a year before apparent ineptitude caught up with him. The Florida Department of Education has become an embarrassment, and no one seems able to do anything about it. For the sake of our kids, we’d better find a way, and fast.C ongress possesses the power of the purse, but only if it wields it. And it should do so to defund ObamaCare before this medical Godzilla grows larger and more ferocious. Republicans senators Mike Lee of Utah, Marco Rubio of Florida, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas are leading a valiant effort to pass legislation in September that will finance the federal government, as is, but zero out ObamaCare, officially called the Affordable Care Act. Short of repeal, which President Barack Obama would veto, this may be the last exit before ObamaCare’s New Year’s Day implementation. Once this beast is unleashed, its fire-breathing destruction could become uncon-tainable. This initiative, headquartered online at DontFundObamaCare.com, arrives just as ObamaCare’s critics have reached a crescendo. “One major problem is the so-called Independent Payment Advisory Board. The IPAB is essen-tially a health-care rationing body. ... The IPAB will cause frustration to providers and patients alike, and it will fail to control costs.” Was that Rush Limbaugh? Glenn Beck? Thus wrote former presidential candidate and Democratic National Chairman Howard Dean, M.D., in July 29’s Wall Street Journal. He likes aspects of ObamaCare but considers the board a clinical wrecking ball. ObamaCare “will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40-hour work week that is the back-bone of the American middle class.” So goes an open letter by the chiefs of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the United Food and Commercial Workers, and UNITE HERE. These three labor unions represent some 2.8 million workers. Even as it paces its cage, ObamaCare already is wreaking havoc. “One thing that we hear in the commentary that we get ... is that some employers are hiring part time in order to avoid the mandate” for insuring staffers who work more than 30 hours weekly, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke testified on Capitol Hill July 17. This worrisome trend dominated June’s employment figures. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, part-time jobs rose by 360,000, while full-time positions fell by 240,000. The term “Affordable Care Act” has become a sick punch line. Maryland expects individual-market premiums to rise in 2014, up to 25 percent. Ohioans are bracing for analogous hikes averaging 88 percent. Forbes columnist Avik Roy calculates that a typical, nonsmok-ing 25-year-old California man will see his rates surge between 100 and 123 percent. Coverage for a similar 40-year-old will cost 116 percent more next year. Because ObamaCare’s 2010-2019 expenses were back loaded (to ease congressional passage), its initial 10-year price tag was $940 billion. However, CBO’s 2014-2023 forecast incorporates four years of actual operations. Thus, ObamaCare’s lat-est 10-year estimate is $1.8 trillion -double the initial sticker price. Meanwhile, ObamaCare’s popularity slip slides away. CBSNews.com’s Amanda Cochran observed July 24 that 54 percent of adults disapprove of ObamaCare, while only 36 percent embrace it. A mere 13 percent believe the program will “help me,” while 38 percent think it will “hurt me.” Amid ObamaCare’s smoldering rubble, it is irritating that GOP senators such as North Carolina’s Richard Burr and Oklahoma’s stalwart Tom Coburn spurn this defunding bid. Imagine: If Republicans organized a proper anti-ObamaCare parade, a deeply disenchanted public just might march with the GOP. So long as the employer mandate is frozen until Jan. 1, 2015 (rather than 2014), Republicans should echo Lee’s flawlessly logical argu-ment: “If the administration will not enforce the law as written, then the American people should not be forced to fund it.” This strategy need not trigger a messy government shutdown. Lee wants to fund the budget, absent ObamaCare. The House should consider similar language and make Democrats declare whether or not they still love this monster. Senate Democrats likewise should choose sides. If this measure reaches Obama’s desk, let him decide: “Do I keep Washington running as is, sans ObamaCare money, or will my veto force Congress to keep ObamaCare alive, even though everyone sees its rotting fangs and hideous, wart-encrusted hide?” Come on, Republicans: Make Obama and the Democrats sweat!

By STEVEN RICHMOND srichmond@lakecityreporter.com The possible regulation of the use of bounce hous es in public parks was a topic of discussion during Thursdays county comis sion meeting. County Manager Dale Williams brought to light growing concerns over pri vate individuals and com panies introducing bounce houses to public parks. I have not heard any body call for a prohibition of these, Williams said. But we believe that these are becoming so common that problems are begin ning to manifest to the point that we may have to start regulating them on public property. He cited a report he received that an unknown person or persons set up a bounce house without per mission and began charg ing the public for use. There were using public property as their personal business, he said. We do not permit that on public property. Williams also cited incidents of parents arguing and acting not very adult-like in front of chil dren. Makeba Murphy, coowner of Party Down 4 Less, rents bounce houses for private events and made comments prior to and after to the commissioners dis cussion. Murphy stressed that she makes it clear to her renters that citizens are required to register parties in public parks in advance. I know its not my responsibility to make those arrangements, she said, but Im still willing to take that extra step. I dont want there to be any problems. Commissioner Scarlet Frisina proposed working with county landscape and parks director Clint Pittman and operations director Kevin Kirby to develop rec ommendations they could introduce to the next board meeting. Commissioners agreed that creating designated areas for that kind of equip ment would be a good place to begin looking for solu tions. They need to think about some type of barrier, sign or something ... to let people know, Frisina said. Commissioners worried that a family or individ ual might rent a bounce house soley to entertain their own guests, but that other children and adults might approach wanting to use it, too. A 3-year-old wouldnt know. Theyre just going to the bounce house, Frisina said. Commissioners agreed to table the discussion until recommendations by Pittman, Kirby and other officials become available. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY AUGUST 4, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 6A Dr Ro bert J.

A number of citizens raised concerns over the past few weeks regarding the Columbia Youth Soccer Association barring nonaffiliated members from using the soccer fields at the Southside Recreational Complex. A proposal would open up one of the fields and several practice areas to public use. However, the field in question does not have proper lighting for nighttime use. Jared Albury, a CYSA coach who also attended pick-up games held by a group of adult players for years, addressed commis sioners first. Im not here to say theres a problem with the CYSA. Its not just about the adults, Albury said. Most of the guys who play have jobs. They wont be able to play six months out of the year if they only had a field for daytime use. County Manager Dale Williams and Commissioner Stephen Bailey knew the soccer issue might come up at the meeting, but were not formally prepared since they were still waiting for cost estimates and recom mendations concerning the countys proposal. Commissioner Bucky Nash wondered whether padlocking the gates was going in the right direc tion. CYSA entered into an agreement with the county that authorizes the asso ciation to regulate the dayto-day operations of the soccer facilities, including organized tournaments and events. Thats a public facil ity, Commissioner Rusty DePratter said. I think were getting away from what it was originally there for with tournament play. Commissioner Ron Williams had a different take on it. I think there should be some control over it, Williams said. Weve tried this before, and the volun teers go home. They won der why should I take care of this facility when John Q. Citizen, who doesnt care, can come and vandal ize it, leave trash on it, and do donuts on it? He also claimed that the budget for such facilities was able to be kept fairly low due to the hard work of local volunteers. I absolutely agree that there need to be fields open to the public, Commissioner Scarlet Frisina said. But on the other hand, you have to respect those organiza tions that go out there and spend their time and money to take care of it. Commissioner Williams said the crux of the issue is that theres not enough space for people to play. He called for more facili ties, and said he wanted to see that discussed as part of this years budget. Opening the facilities to the public would also cre ate liability issues, accord ing to Frisina. Theres an electri cal box for the lights out there, she said. When it starts getting dark around 5:30 in the winter, people are going to try to jimmy open that box. If they get electrocuted, thats on us. Pamela Hartopp addressed the commis sioners during public com ments and expressed her concern regarding her 16year-old daughters inabil ity to freely practice on the fields. Its not just adults, she said. Its the leaders of tomorrow that want to do something constructive with their time. Id rather see her out there than at a party drinking and booz ing. Frisina, a non-voting member of the countys Sports and Recreation Advisory Council, will present the information at the councils next meet ing. Members include representatives of various sports groups as well as recreation officials. They will have a bet ter understanding of the issues, she said. Its a collaborative process that will hopefully put solutions into motion. We have to draw that happy medium. The advisory councils next meeting, open to the public, will be held at the coachs building in the Southside Recreational Complex Aug. 12. It seems they certainly have their work cut out for them, Bailey said. STEVEN RICHMOND/ Lake City Reporter Pamela Hartopp voices concerns during the Thursdays county commission meeting over the lack of available soccer practice areas for her 16-year-old daughter. STEVEN RICHMOND/ Lake City Reporter Mekeba Murphy, whose busi ness rents bounce houses, speaks during the Thursdays county commission meeting. ARSON: Man, woman arrested Continued From Page 1A Her suspicions were con firmed after locating a positive pregnancy test in the room, the report said. Hines herself is preg nant with Sellers child, but claimed the pregnan cy test was not hers, but rather that of Nekeisha Fennell, a woman Sellers was seeing as well, the report said. Hines also alleges that she and Glover started talking again about a week before the incident occurred, the report said. According to statements by friends of the suspects, Hines and Glover entered Sellers room, scattered clothes, applied gasoline and started a fire. Invesitgators spoke with several individuals connected with Hines and Glover who claimed the alleged arsonists were threatening people who came forward to the police and that they were trying to pin the fire on Glovers girlfriend Shenemeeka Shonta Farmer, the report said. Following several inter views of suspects, wit nesses and other persons, along with polygraph tests and recorded phone calls, deputies found prob able cause to arrest Hines and Glover for arson, the report said. They were held in Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $100,000 bond each. Both face one firstdegree felony charge of arson of a dwelling with people present, a crime punishable by up to $10,000 and 30 years in prison.

Chatter over police scanners during the event also revealed Palmer injured his hand hopping a fence and swam through a retention pond as part of his eva-sion. Residents from the nearby Cypress Inn Motel sat in the shade of their porches as they watched the foot chase unfold on the hot summer day. “All of a sudden we see this skinny white guy book-ing it toward the woods,” said Shawn Jones, a motel resident, referring to a wooded area north of U.S. 90. “He was fast, too. Boy was even texting on his phone while he was run-ning.” Other witnesses at Cypress Inn and Waffle House all agreed on the suspect’s remarkable abil-ity to flee and text simul-taneously. Troopers were unsure who the recipients of the texts may have been. While Palmer eluded police in the wooded area, troopers called in canine units from Baker and Suwannee correctional institutions, the release said. Palmer was captured about two hours later. Palmer was taken to Shands at Lake Shore Regional Medical Center for treatment of a minor hand wound, then he was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility without bond. Palmer faces charges of resisting an officer, fleeing the police and vehicle theft, and two traffic viola-tions. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA trio of local Girl Scout cadettes are hoping to increase local literacy rates by providing reading materials for elementary school-aged children at a variety of locales around the city. Madison-Rose Patterson, Cathleen Towne and Kayla Caslow, all of Girl Scout Troop 525, are working on a communi-ty project to earn their Girl Scout Silver Awards. They decided to tackle the local literacy prob-lem. The Silver Award is one of the three highest awards for Girl Scouts. Each cadette has to have at least 50 hours invested in the project to earn the award. Patterson, 14, worked on setting up locations where young-sters can get books through the program. The books will be available at: Harveys supermarket, Ruppert’s Bakery & Cake, U Scream Ice Cream and Smoothies, Champ’s Pizza, Terri’s Sweets Tweets, City Hall, the Columbia County Tax Collectors Office, Magnolia Pediatrics and Old Times Country Buffet. “Most of the places that we have are going to have book shelves that will have tons of books,” Patterson said of the informal library locations. Cathleen Towne, 13, said the bookshelves will be placed in a variety of locations around Lake City to promote childhood lit-eracy and awareness. “So many kids today don’t read for fun because they don’t have access to the library or don’t have books at home,” Towne said. “We are hoping that they can read a book, take a book or return a book to one of the spots so they have a chance to read.” Kayla Caslow, 14, said they’ve created a Facebook page with help from Linda Towne called: For The Love of Reading, LC, Fla., where information about the program includes all book program locations and updates on how the program is progress-ing. The project is designed to improve literacy for children who are 10 years old and younger. “Studies have shown that onethird of children who cannot read proficiently by the fourth grade will end up in jail,” Sandra Caslow, Kayla’s mother, said. Some of the locations already have shelves and book ends have been made to accommodate the books purchased by the girls. The Columbia County Public Library donated several hun-dred books to the girls for the literacy project. Other books were donated from the girls’ friends, families, churches, other Girl Scouts and people in the community. Columbia Bank recently donated $75 to help the girls purchase additional books for the program. Elizabeth Tison, a Columbia Bank ambassador, said the bank selected five nonprofit chari-ties to provide funding for local programs, including the girls’ library locations project. “We’re just trying to see where we can help, and obviously the girls doing something that is equivalent to the Eagle Award for the Boy Scouts is really good for the girls,” she said. “It teach-es them how to find their voice, which is part of their journey to being independent women. They’re a good group, and if anyone can find a way to help them by volunteering or giving contributions, I think it’s a good thing.”7A EFIK?J@;<:?LI:?F=:?I@JK )'(*>fjg\cD\\k`e^K_\d\1N_XkjX`k_k_\jZi`gkli\j6 =\Xkli\[^l\jkjg\Xb\i$Kfep?\ii`e^ 8l^ljk(($(+#)'(*8l^%((jkXik`e^Xk08D›8l^%()$(+$.GDE`^_kcp `YjfeCXe\*/.,,$'*0* 934 NE Lake DeSoto Circle, Lake City, FL(Next to Courthouse) Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, AUGUST 4, 2013 7A TONY BRITT /Lake City ReporterCharlene Brown, Columbia Bank assistant vice president of marketing and community services, (from left) presents Madison-Rose Patterson, Cathleen Towne and Kayl a Caslow a check for $75 with the aid of Elizabeth Tison, a Columbia Bank Ambassador.

Snook expects business to be busiest today. “Most people wait till the last minute. So, Sunday will probably be our big-gest day,” she said.

By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comGAINESVILLE — Florida will be without its starting quarterback for at least a few days after Jeff Driskel had an emergency proce-dure to remove his appen-dix last week. Florida head coach Will Muschamp informed the media of the surgery Thursday in Gainesville, but said that Driskel should make a full recovery. The head coach was hoping when he first heard about it that it was just a bad cheeseburger, but informed the media that Driskel was fine and he was at media day. Driskel said he’s glad that they were able to catch it when they did. “We’re lucky we found it early and handled that before it got bad,” he said. “It could have been a lot worse. We’re lucky we have a world class medical staff.” Driskel’s time frame to return is unclear, but Muschamp said it shouldn’t be more than two weeks. Had the staff not caught it in time, there’s a chance that Driskel could have missed Florida’s opener against Toledo on Aug. 31. Driskel didn’t clear the picture any on when his exact return would be. “Whenever I’m ready, I’ll be back,” he said. “(I’m) not going to rush it, but as soon as I am ready, that’s when I’ll get back at it. It’s not something where I’m going to be out for a long period of time.” Muschamp said the plan for Driskel is to take it slow and listen to the medical staff on how much work he should get in. “I’m going to listen to our medical staff and let them guide me on how much he can do and how much work does he think he can handle,” Muschamp said. “Obviously, when he’s in the game, he’ll be with our first group. But I’ll listen to our medical staff as far as how much work they want him to partake in as we go through again. They By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comGAINESVILLE — In his third year as the University of Florida head football coach, Will Muschamp appears comfortable in his own skin. Gone at Thursday’s media day was the maniac on the sideline and uptight inter-view. Instead, a candid and even humorous Muschamp met with the media to dis-cuss the upcoming season. One of the main topics of conversation was a rash of injuries that have hit the Gators since Muschamp last met with the media, including Jeff Driskel who had his appendix removed on Tuesday. “Our medical staff did a fantastic job identifying that early,” Muschamp said. “So he ought to be fine.” Driskel was fine, and met with the media later in the day. Muschamp didn’t give much of an indication on exactly when he would return, but did offer a little clarity. “Timetable, they say two weeks, probably will be inside of two weeks based on the early diagnosis of where we are,” Muschamp said. “He’s doing extremely well.” Muschamp said things won’t change with Driskel’s injury and the expectation level for this year’s team is still to reach the SEC Championship game. “I don’t think it’s ever good for you that your starter is not taking the reps at any position, cer-tainly the quarterback posi-tion,” Muschamp said. “But you always look at it from a glass half full/empty, from the standpoint of what great reps those guys will get. We need to distance ourselves a little bit of who the back-up is going to be. Right now, it would be Tyler Murphy, but, again, we’ve got a motto around here, man down, man up, and I challenged the foot-ball team just in a meeting right now. It’s time for some-body to respond.

The Indians will begin at 7:30 a.m. “We are trying to get it done in the morning the first week,” coach Demetric Jackson said. “When the teachers come back next week, we will do more in the afternoon.” Fort White also will do more on the field in the sec-ond week, as the Florida High School Athletic Association has added to its heat acclimation policy. “We have three days in shorts and then two days in shorts and shoulder pads,” Jackson said. “We can’t actually hit until Saturday.” Two-a-day practices also have taken a hit. For the first five days, practices can run three hours. If there is a second practice during the day, it has to be a walk-through not using a ball. In the second week there can be two-a-days on alter-nating days. Jackson has his annual parents gathering planned for 6 p.m. today in the high school gym. Team rules, safety concerns and player expectations will be dis-cussed, as will booster club information. Jackson said the parents meeting is for varsity, junior varsity and middle school players. Jackson said the summer workouts were a success. “The biggest thing is we got some real good condi-tioning in and we got stron-ger,” Jackson said. “We are in real good shape. It was evident at the FCA camp we were in better shape than most teams.” Fort White is facing its usual problem. “Our concern right now From staff reportsColumbia High football is not the only sport at the school that begins fall practice on Monday.

Drug busts expected MondayAssociated PressNEW YORK — Pressure to get suspensions over with before the playoffs could force an end to nego-tiations in baseball’s latest drug scandal. Monday appears to be the deadline for Alex Rodriguez and 13 others to accept suspensions for their ties to the Biogenesis of America anti-aging clin-ic. While A-Rod is expect-ed to get a lengthy ban, a penalty starting that day would allow Texas All-Star outfielder Nelson Cruz to return for October. Major League Baseball is prepared to issue two simultaneous announce-ments no later than Monday, a person famil-iar with the process told The Associated Press on Thursday. One would list players who accept sus-pensions; the other would name those disciplined without deals, but who could challenge penalties before an arbitrator. Most players face 50-game suspensions for their links to the now-closed Florida clinic, which has been accused of dis-tributing banned perfor-mance-enhancing drugs. But baseball is threatening to kick Rodriguez out for life unless the three-time AL MVP agrees to a long ban, perhaps around 200 games. Others facing discipline include Francisco Cervelli, Jhonny Peralta and Everth Cabrera.

So, regardless of the situation, that’s what we expect.” The plan for now is to keep Driskel involved as much as possible while he gets healthy. “(Driskel) will be involved in the mental side of the game and seeing the defense and those sort of things and being able to get some mental reps through the film work and all of that,” Muschamp said. “It will be a day-to-day pro-cess is basically how it was explained to me today. All they’re worried about are the sutures healing and that there’s no infection. Once you get past that stage, it’s all a pain tolerance issue. Luckily Jeff’s a tough guy, so it’s not going to be an issue for him. He wants to get back on the field, but we’re going to listen to our medical staff before him on those situations.” The Gators also have an injury in Matt Jones, who is out with a viral infection. “He came down with this in the last four or five days, and right now, we’re filling him full of antibiotics and how his body responds will tell me how quickly he can come back,” Muschamp said. “I probably won’t know definitively until end of next week on that. It’s just one of those things that happened, but a guy that should be fine.” But the injuries didn’t seem to phase Muschamp. He seemed confident about the Gators’ chances this fall. He made jokes about wood-peckers being immune to concussions, he joked that Florida must win every SEC East game to make it to the SEC Championship and he made clear that pre-season rankings weren’t that important. What he’s focused on is having Florida prepared to make a run come Aug. 31. Muschamp’s one concern is depth on defense heading into the fall. “I think we have a good enough mixture of guys up front that have played well and can play well for us to be fine,” Muschamp said. “I’m concerned about the depth and the quality experience at the linebacker position, and obviously the safety position.” And Muschamp didn’t shy away from noting that some of last year’s perfor-mances are going to be used as motivation. “I do think that we still had a couple games that we didn’t play very well or coach very well in, and every player is motivated differently,” Muschamp said. “ Some of those guys certainly have used that through the off-season as a motivating factor to under-stand how close we were to some opportunities, and we didn’t create those for ourselves. We let those opportunities slip. So we certainly use that as a moti-vating factor. But more than anything to me, it’s about individually improving as a player and collectively that helps you improve as a team.

The tournament is a Wo rld Golf Championships event. Tiger rolls at FirestoneAssociated PressAKRON, Ohio — Tiger Woods followed one of the best rounds of his life with a solid 2-under 68 on Saturday in the third round of the Bridgestone Invitational, giving him a seven-shot lead and setting him up for a remarkable eighth victory at Firestone Country Club. Unlike in a second-round 61 that could easily have been a 59 or even lower, Woods didn’t recover from all of his errant shots. He bogeyed the ninth, 14th and 16th holes, failing to bounce back from medio-cre shots. Yet he still was good enough to put himself in position for yet another lopsided victory, one that will likely mark him as the player to beat next week in the PGA Championship at Oak Hill. Woods had a 15-under 195 total Henrik Stenson was second after a 67, while Jason Duffner also shot 67 and was in third place at 203.Associated PressCANTON, Ohio — While his six other classmates for this weekend’s enshrine-ment sported blue golf shirts given them by the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Cris Carter was dressed in suit and tie. He might never take them off. “Man, I am in the Hall of Fame. I am wearing a suit every day,” Carter said Friday. Carter joined Jonathan Ogden, Larry Allen, Bill Parcells, Warren Sapp, Dave Robinson and Curley Culp as the newest induct-ees on Saturday night. He was, by far, the most emotional during a news conference Friday as fes-tivities began for the 50th anniversary celebration of the hall. The only member of the Class of 2013 who didn’t win an NFL title, Carter used a handkerchief to wipe away the tears when asked about his career and the fact it took six tries to get elected. “Minnesota fans didn’t judge me when a lot of bad things were being said about me,” Carter said, fre-quently pausing to regain his composure. “They always cheered for Cris. The only thing I really wish is we could’ve won that championship for those people. What they did for my life, every day I went out there, I played for those people.” Parcells was a winner of two NFL titles as a coach. Ogden, one of the premier offensive tackles of his time, grabbed a Super Bowl ring in 2000. Larry Allen was a 1995 champion with Dallas. Sapp, an outstanding defensive tackle with a per-sonality as big as any sta-dium, won the 2002 cham-pionship in Tampa Bay. Robinson, a major cog in Green Bay’s champion-ship machine under Vince Lombardi, won the first two Super Bowls. Culp, one of the original pass-rushing demons at defensive tackle, got his ring with the 1969 Chiefs.Associated PressMIAMI — Greg Oden still needs some time to get ready for the rigors of play-ing in the NBA. He no longer needs a new team, however. The former No. 1 overall draft pick has chosen to sign with the two-time defending NBA champion Miami Heat, ending months of suspense over where the center whose career has been decimated by a series of knee problems would be attempting his comeback. Mike Conley Sr., one of Oden’s agents, said Friday night that the former Portland center accepted an offer worth about $1 million for this season. “He just thought that it was the best fit for him, where he’s at and especial-ly for how it relates to him coming back,” Conley said. “He can be on a winning team and be working his way in slowly.” Oden casts his lot with Heat Sapp, Parcells, Carter among NFL Hall of Fame inductees

Your marketplace source for Lake City and Columbia County Gaming store rises from the ashes Phoenix Electronics back in business after April 2012 fire. By TONY BRITT tbritt@lakecityreporter.com P hoenix Electronics and Phoenix Gaming is not your runof-the-mill gam ing and electronics shop. The store caters to gamers who like the old school games and gaming consoles popular from the 1990s and earlier as well as value-oriented items for modern day gamers and electronics buffs. John Norman, owner of Phoenix Electronics and Phoenix Gaming and a gamer himself, runs the business in a way only other true gamers could appreciate he tries to get more people involved in gaming. Luther Carbaugh, who shares the location with Norman, handles the computer products, while Norman handles the gam ing side of the business. Carbaugh does computer repairs and electronics work at the shop. The shop also has bud get computers for sale from $50, as well as budget lap top computers beginning at $125. Unlike many local gam ing stores and venues, Norman has taken a unique approach to gaming. His approach puts more of an emphasis on getting people into various gaming set tings through old school video games, older gaming consoles as well as role playing and card games. Phoenix Electronics and Phoenix Gaming, 736 S. Marion Ave., is open from 10 a.m. 6 p.m., Monday Saturday. We wanted to take a different approach when it came to video games than the normal game store, he said. All of our games, with a few excep tions of like rare or boxed items, are $5. You can get an Xbox 360 game, PS3 (Playstation 3) game for $5. The $5 pricing also extends to Xbox, PS2, Nintendo 64, Supernintendo, Sega and Atari games. Norman said some games are even less. Phoenix Gaming also sells gaming consoles for $25 Super Nintendo, Xbox, Nintendo 64 and Playstation 2. All the hook-ups needed to connect the console and a game are included with the price so when a cus tomer walks out the store after purchasing a game console they can take it home and play right away. We do it for the love of the games, Norman said. With the way the economy is right now, we live in the neighborhood and we know what people are going through and we know how hard it can be. We thought, Why not do something different? Lets take a different approach at it and weve done well. Were expanding. The expansion has allowed Norman to con tinue his sale of the older gaming systems, as well as expand into the realm of role-playing card games, card games, desktop games and board games.

With its stock near an all-time high and the company sporting a market value above $110 billion, is it too late to join the party? Probably not. Naysayers may point to the company’s box-office flop in “The Lone Ranger,” but that’s more than offset by the success of “Iron Man 3” and Pixar’s “Monsters University” — and Disney stands to make a lot more money from its newly acquired “Star Wars” and Marvel assets. Disney is a powerhouse on the small screen, too, with ESPN, and it’s getting into console gaming with its new Disney Infinity offering. Meanwhile, parks and resorts are Disney’s second-biggest business and its fastest-growing segment. Attendance has been growing faster at international parks than domestic ones, and developing economies hold a lot of potential park visitors. Disney has regularly hiked its park prices, enjoying strong brand power. Through its blockbuster pictures, expanding presence in the video game industry and dominance in parks and resorts, Disney is likely to keep prospering in the near, and far, future. It’s hard to argue that Disney stock is cheap with a P/E ratio near 20, but sometimes you have to pay up for a great company.

3CBiz LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, AUGUST 4-10, 2013 3C MLB drug deal deadline looms By RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer NEW YORK Looming playoffs could force an end to negotiations in baseballs latest drug scandal as pressure builds to impose penalties so stars can still make the postseason. Monday appears to be the deadline for Alex Rodriguez and 13 others to accept suspensions for their ties to the Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic. While A-Rod is expected to get a lengthy ban, a penalty starting that day would allow Texas AllStar outfielder Nelson Cruz to return for October. Major League Baseball is prepared to issue two simultaneous announcements no later than Monday, a person famil iar with the process told The Associated Press on Thursday. One would list players who accept suspensions; the other would name those disciplined without deals, but who could challenge penalties before an arbitrator. The person spoke on condition of ano nymity because no statements were autho rized. Most players face 50-game suspensions for their links to the now-closed Florida clinic, which has been accused of dis tributing banned performance-enhancing drugs. But baseball is threatening to kick Rodriguez out for life unless the three-time AL MVP agrees to a long ban, perhaps around 200 games. Rodriguez appeared ready to talk Thursday as he was leaving the teams minor league complex in Tampa, Fla., waving a group of writers to his car in the parking lot and rolling down the window. However, when he saw a second group with TV cameras approaching, he said: Ill talk to you guys, but no cameras. Rodriguez closed the window and wait ed a moment, then left without saying another word. Baseballs highest-paid player with a $28 million salary, Rodriguez played in a simulated game and saw 31 pitches over six at-bats, played third and ran bases. The Yankees expect A-Rod to be accused of recruiting other athletes for the clinic, attempting to obstruct MLBs investiga tion, and not being truthful with MLB in the past. Baseball has considered suspend ing him for violations of its labor contract and drug agreement, which would cause him to start serving his penalty before the case would go to arbitration. Sidelined following hip surgery in January and then a strained quadriceps, the 38-year-old third baseman hopes to return to the Yankees in a few days. He is to play Friday and Saturday at DoubleA Trenton, putting himself in position to rejoin New York for Mondays series opener at the Chicago White Sox if hes not banned. Barring a rainout this weekend, Cruzs Rangers would have exactly 50 games remaining before they play at the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night. If he files a grievance, as a first offender, the penalty would be delayed until after a deci sion by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz. But the lengthy legal process likely would risk his eligibility for the playoffs and the start of next season. Cruz said Thursday he hadnt made any decision about a possible appeal. Asked whether he was told specifically what pen alty could be forthcoming, Cruz respond ed, No, I cannot tell you. Sorry. Detroit shortstop Jhonny Peralta is the other targeted All-Star on a pennant con tender, and the Tigers would have 53 games left before playing at Cleveland on Monday. Another All-Star shortstop, San Diegos Everth Cabrera, could serve all of a 50game suspension this year if he begins with the Padres game against Baltimore on Tuesday. Others facing discipline include injured Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli and Seattle catcher Jesus Montero, who is in the minor leagues with Triple-A Tacoma. The Miami Herald reported Thursday that the U.S. Attorneys Office in Miami had opened a criminal investigation into whether Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch illegally sold controlled substances to high school students. That probe has the potential to complicate baseballs dis ciplinary cases if Boschs lawyers advise him not to participate in MLB grievance hearings, where the commissioners office presumably would call him to testify and authenticate documents. AP Sports Writer Stephen Hawkins and AP freelance writer Mark Didtler contrib uted to this report. Despite boom, Big Oil in a slump By JONATHAN FAHEY AP Energy Writer NEW YORK New troves of oil have been found all over the globe, and oil companies are taking in around $100 for every barrel they produce. But these seemingly prosperous condi tions arent doing much for Big Oil: Profit and production at the worlds largest oil companies are slumping badly. Exxon Mobil, Shell and BP all posted disappointing earnings this week. Chevron is expected to post a profit decline Friday. All of them face the same problem: The cost to get newfound oil from remote locations and tightly packed rock is high and rising. And it takes years and billions of dollars to get big new production projects up and running. The higher extraction costs could translate to higher oil and gasoline prices for consumers. Strong production growth at an oil company can offset higher operating costs, but when pro duction is flat or declining its a big hit, says Brian Youngberg, an analyst at Edward Jones. Even though oil prices are $100 or higher, the returns on investment arent what they used to be. The new oil being found and produced is in ultra-deep ocean waters, in sands that must be heated to release the hydro carbons, or trapped in shale or other tight rock that requires constant drilling to keep produc tion steady. That makes this new oil far more expensive to get out of the ground than whats known as conventional oil large pools of oil and gas in relatively easyto-drill locations. Those reserves have always been hard to find, but now they are all but gone outside of the Middle East. David Vaucher, who tracks oil production operating costs at IHS CERA, says oilfield operation costs are now at a record high. The fields are more remote and the resource conditions are more extreme, he says. New oil projects in the U.S. and Canada, where production is growing faster than anywhere in the world, require high oil prices to be profitable, Vaucher says. In order to make an industry average return, a new production project in the Canadian oil sands requires a price of $81 per barrel. For an onshore U.S. field, its $70 per barrel, but it ranges from $45 to $95 per barrel, depending on the rate of oil flow. In the Gulf of Mexico, its $63. In the Middle East, just $23 per barrel. Many oil analysts predict that relatively weak growth in world oil demand coupled with rising production from newfound fields will make for flat or lower oil prices in the years to come. But if big oil companies cant earn strong profits at todays oil pric es, it may mean prices will have to rise higher to convince them its worth the risk to continue to aggressively explore new fields. If they worry they cant make enough money, theyll cut back. Oswald Clint, an analyst at Bernstein Research, said in a recent report that oil prices can hold steady and even rise into 2015. Among his reasons: The growth of U.S. oil produc tion is slowing because the best new American fields have been tapped, and the number of rigs probing new fields has flattened out. One of the more difficult plac es for Big Oil lately has been onshore in the U.S., which is in the midst of a historic oil boom being driven by the new discover ies. American production is now rising faster than any time since the 1950s. But major oil companies such as Exxon Mobil, Chevron, Royal Dutch Shell and BP were late to get into the U.S. shale oil game, and therefore had to pay high prices to acquire promising land. And the drilling is hugely expen sive, too. Because the oil is thinly dispersed and hard to squeeze out, dozens of wells must be sys tematically drilled over an area to get to the oil.

LIFE Sunday, August 4, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D A lthough the heat of summer has been with us for some time, the pattern of daily thunderstorms has returned, bringing along all this high humid-ity. These are the conditions that allow many lawn dis-eases to thrive. All warm season grasses can be injured by diseases, but St. Augustine grass has more than its share of the dis-ease and fungus problem. Many disease pathogens are always present in estab-lished lawns, but the patho-gens can readily spread and cause problems when the grass is stressed by other factors. Factors that can weaken grass include mowing too low, too much or too little fertilizer, poorly drained soil, improper irri-gation practices and com-paction. Correcting these problems can help make your grass healthy enough to compete with the patho-gen on its own. According to research, mowing at the correct height can help thicken the lawn, increase root health and suppress weeds. Just think about all the proven ways your lawn will ben-efit just by adjusting the height of your mower deck. Mowing should be timed so that no more than one third of the leaf blades are removed. The remaining portion of the blades must produce enough energy for the plant to survive. Scalping the lawn reduces the plant’s ability to bounce back from pest damage. The ideal healthy cutting height of St. Augustine grass and Bahia grass is 3 to 4 inches. Centipede grass should be mowed to a height of 1 to 2 inches, and Bermuda grass should be mowed to about 1 inch. The dwarf St. Augustine grass varieties should be mowed at about 2 inches. If you really want to help your lawn become healthy, switch your irriga-tion system to manual. We receive plenty of rain dur-ing this time of the year, so only irrigate “as needed.” Irrigate only when you see signs that indicate water is actually needed by the plants. These signs include leaf blades folding length-wise, grass color becoming bluish gray or leaf blades staying bent down in your footprint after you walk across the lawn. When you see one of these signs, irri-gate with about to inch of water. To learn more about when to irrigate your lawn, read http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/EP054 on the UF /IFAS website. Some of the diseases to watch out for during hot rainy weather are leaf spots, root rot and take-all root rot. Cercospora leaf spot and gray leaf spot ’Tis the season for grass diseases Story ideas?ContactRobert BridgesEditor754-0428rbridges@lakecityreporter.com Lake City Reporter1DLIFEBy AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comA s drywall tumbled to the floor, pink insula-tion floated around the group of teenag-ers gathered inside a Lake City residence. Megan Hemberger, from Indian Rocks Beach, grabbed the next hand-ful of drywall, releasing another pink cloud. The teenagers, 18 in total, were part of a United Church of Christ mission trip, which trav-eled to Columbia County from all over Florida to aid Tropical Storm Debby victims. The church partnered with United Way of Suwannee Valley to help the region. Led by Pastor Sheila Guillaume of West Palm Beach, the group arrived in Lake City Wednesday night. They were welcomed with a pizza party hosted by Bethel United Methodist Church, includ-ing brownies and ice cream. Victory Christian Teaching Ministries provided the group a place to stay for the duration of their trip. “Our focus — in terms of our church — is to love God and our neighbors,” Guillaume said. “This is just one way of showing that.” On Thursday, the group worked to clear out a house that had been struck by lightning dur-ing last year’s storm. They spent the day pulling down drywall, sweeping up installation, tearing out nails and ripping up carpet. By 2 p.m., they had already filled one large trash container. “This is wonderful. It makes you feel so good about the future,” said United Way case manager Lynne Hodges. “This is summer time, and they’re not at the beach. They’re here working.” Hodges feels it is extremely important for volunteers to help with relief efforts. The group from the United Church of Christ was the first volunteer group of the summer, she said, but they have plans for more. “We have many more houses than we can handle,” she said. “The more help we can get, the more we can stretch our funding.” On June 26, 2012, Debby made landfall on the Florida coast — after soaking the state for four straight days while it brewed in the Gulf. The storm deposited up to 30 inches of rain on Columbia County, causing an estimated $12 million in damage, according to local officials. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency Recovery Program summary, 1,789 Columbia County residents filed for assistance after Tropical Storm Debby, compared to 510 Teens on a mission Photos by AMANDA WILLIAMSON / Lake City Reporter Carlton Kieckhafer pulls nails Thursday while helping strip a Lake City home of storm-damaged drywall and ins ulation.

But he’s been a dog-lover even longer, and he’s turning his design exper-tise to a half-million-dollar fantasy dog park. Berkus, 41, has joined the creative team for the 2014 Beneful Dream Dog Park Contest. Contestants have to answer one ques-tion: “If you had $500,000 to create a Dream Dog Park where you and your best buddy can play together, what would you do?” In Lancaster, Pa., the answer included a doggy amusement park with a tennis ball tree and a 40-foot roller coaster bridge. The park there — the third contest winner — opens Aug. 6. The first park was built in Johns Creek, Ga., with a family destination theme and includes a bone-shaped bridge, two splash pads, tunnels, rubberized mulch paths and shade trees. The second park in Alabaster, Ala., has synthetic turf, agility rings, a walking trail, a fetch football field, fire hydrant goalposts and a mulch adventure path with tunnels, said Brent Gleckler, brand director for Beneful dog food. “There is nothing I love more than being with my dog,” Berkus said of side-kick Tucker, a black mutt. Together, they visit a dog park nearly every night. The parks in Alabaster and Johns Creek have been tourist magnets. In Georgia, the city had to make 72 new parking spaces next to the park to accommodate visitors. In Alabama, people take good care of the park, but the city does a walkthrough once a day, sprays it down twice a week and uses a biodegradable chemical once a month, city parks director Tim Hamm said. The dog park is part the city’s flagship Veteran’s Park, with a ball field com-plex, 2.5-mile walking trail, eight pavilions with picnic tables, two playgrounds, a skateboard park and vet-eran’s memorial, Hamm said.

By RAMIT PLUSHNICK-MASTI Associated Press HOUSTON A child of the Great Depression, John Milkovisch didnt throw anything away not even the empty cans of beer he enjoyed each afternoon with his wife. So, in the early 1970s when aluminum siding on houses was all the rage, he lugged down the cans he had stored in his attic for years, painstakingly cut open and flattened each one and began to wallpaper his home. The funny thing is that it wasnt ... to attract atten tion, said Ruben Guevara, head of restoration and preservation of the Beer Can House in Houstons Memorial Park area. He said himself that if there was a house similar to this a block away, he wouldnt take the time to go look at it. He had no idea what was the fascination about what he was doing. Milkovisch passed away in the mid-1980s, but his wife, Mary, still lived there. Her sons would do work from time to time, replacing rusty steel cans with new ones and restoring a hur ricane-destroyed beer wall. And when they feared for her safety because of the gawkers, they put up a pri vacy fence, embedding beer cans in that as well. The neighborhood has rapidly transformed since Mary Milkovischs death in the mid-1990s, going from a working middle-class area to todays condoand loftlined upper-class sector. But the home remains a wellknown entity. Local nonprofit Orange Show Center for Visionary Art bought the property about 10 years ago, began a careful restoration of the house and opened it to the public. It shows the human nature of the individual is supreme. You can take the simplest thing, and it can actually affect a lot of other people, said Houston resi dent Patrick Louque, who lived in the area when it was John Milkovischs pet project. Milkovisch began redec orating the homes exterior in earnest in 1968, when he purchased a metal canopy for his backyard so he and his wife could have some shade while drinking their afternoon beers. Fed up with lawn-mowing, he cov ered the yard with concrete blocks, embedding them with marbles he had col lected as a boy. The back wall of the cano pied area became a cacoph ony of colors sunlight playing tricks as it shone through the beer bottles and marbles. Then, he moved on to the side and the front, using long-collected materials and gathering discarded items from the railroad track nearby, where he worked as an upholsterer refurbish ing rail cars. Lugging home the things he wanted in a satchel or a wheelbarrow he inherited from his father, Milkovisch would spend a few hours each day out side, where his wife who barred him from doing too much to the interior had given him free rein. He used cans, bottles, marbles, redwood, Guevara said. He drank a lot of beer, him and Mary, and he col lected all the beer cans that he would drink. He stored them because he knew he was going to use them, but he didnt know for what. A lot of beer it was, too. The art center estimates Milkovisch had 50,000 cans that piled up by drinking a six-pack daily over the span of 20 years. For 17 months, working from bottom to top, Milkovisch coated the home with cans of Budweiser, Texas Pride, Shiner really, whatever brand was on sale.

HAPPENINGS Howells to celebrate 60th wedding anniversary Don and Polly Howell of Gilchrist County will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary on Aug. 8, 2013. The couple were married in Brook, Ind., on Aug. 8, 1953, and first lived in Columbus, Ohio, where Don was sta tioned with the Air Force during the Korean War. After he was discharged in 1956, they returned to live in Indiana. In 1978, they moved to Cape Coral, Fla., then to Zephyrhills in 1993 and to Gilchrist County after that. They became the proud parents of four children: Julie Howell Rymond (19552005), who lived in Phoenix, Ariz., and had two sons; Paul Howell (1957-2004), who had a son and a daughter; David Howell (1959-1987) and John Howell, who lives with his wife, Amy, and their three sons in San Antonio, Fla. They also have three great-grandsons and one great-grand daughter. For most of Dons working years, he was in the auto paint and body trade, work ing in dealerships and in shops he owned. Mrs. Howell was a public school teacher, first in Indiana then in Floridas Lee and Pasco counties. She also taught advanced Bible studies at a Bible college. Through the years, they have both been active in their local churches, and Don spent a lot of time on the mission field in Haiti. Polly is presently the president of the Lake City Aglow Lighthouse. The couple invites family and friends to share their memories with them at a reception that will be held in their honor at 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 10, in the Fellowship Hall of the Fort White Church of God. While they would love to see the smiling faces of friends and family at the event, they request no gifts. COURTESY Don and Polly Howell. D.

However, there were only seven teenagers, and it took them a week to finish the same amount of labor accomplished in one day here.

Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, AUGUST 4, 2013 3D3DLIFEBY BRIDGET MURPHYAssociated PressBOSTON — Long before Ernest Hemingway first wrote a story, his mother was busy writ-ing about him. Grace Hall Hemingway started a series of scrapbooks document-ing the childhood of the future Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winner by describing how the sun shone and robins sang on the day in July 1899 when he was born. Starting today, the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston will make the content of five Hemingway scrapbooks available online for the first time, giving fans and scholars the chance to follow the life of one of the 20th century’s literary greats from diapers to high school degree. Hemingway Collection curator Susan Wrynn said much of the content hasn’t been made avail-able to the public before and only a few researchers have seen it in its entirety. The fragile leather-bound volumes have been kept in a dark vault for about four decades to keep them from fall-ing apart. The release of these records from the archive, home to 90 percent of existing Hemingway manuscript materials, will come on what would have been the scribe’s 114th birthday. “I think it will be a very rich resource for people interested in learning about this period of his life,” Sean Hemingway, the author’s grandson, said in a recent interview with The Associated Press. “He had tre-mendous talent. It must have been there from the beginning. So I’m sure there are clues in there to that.” Pennsylvania State University professor Sandra Spanier, who is general editor of a project that will publish Hemingway’s letters in more than a dozen volumes, said the scrapbooks that the author’s mother created offer details of his daily life up until age 18 that aren’t anywhere else. “She almost made their lives into a story ... and I think that carries over into his life and his fiction,” she said. There’s a scribbling from when Hemingway wasn’t quite 3 years old that the future war correspondent and novelist — who later won a Pulitzer Prize for “The Old Man and the Sea” — told his mother depicted the roaring sea. Other early pas-sages also hinted at the writer Hemingway would become. Before he was 4, Hemingway was trooping into the woods to go hunting with his father and “using long words” and making “sage remarks,” according to his mother, who enclosed photos of her son trout fishing and holding his own rifle. “Can cock my own gun,” one of her captions read. By the time Hemingway was 5, his mother noted that he was collecting war cartoons and had an appreciation for characters with courage. “He loves stories about Great Americans,” she wrote. The scrapbooks have a plethora of family photos from the Hemingway family’s home in Oak Park, Ill., and their vacation cottage on a lake in Northern Michigan, including shots of a bare-bottomed baby Hemingway playing in the water by a canoe. They include letters to Hemingway and others he wrote as a child, including a note of contrition in which he confessed to bad behavior in church. “My conduct tomorrow will be good,” 13-year-old Hemingway promised. The scrapbooks also contain childhood paintings and tell of Hemingway playing the cello, suiting up for a “lightweight” football squad and taking up boxing. During his junior year of high school, he was on his school’s prom committee and, according to a report card note from his Latin teacher, showed “improvement both in attitude and work.” As Hemingway matured, the scrapbooks showcased his earliest attempts at the craft that would come to define his profes-sional life. Among them were a short story from his high school’s literary magazine, clip-pings from some of his first assignments as a high school newspaper reporter and a sonnet in which 16-year-old Hemingway seemed to poke fun at himself. “Nobody likes Ernest, that, is straight stuff,” he said, “and when he writes stories — we all cry ‘Enough.’” The scrapbooks are part of the collection that Hemingway’s widow, Mary, gifted to the JFK Library and Museum after the author’s 1961 suicide. Sean Hemingway said he’s excited by their public release and called them one of the ways he’s become familiar with a grandfa-ther he never met. “He died before I was born,” the 46-year-old said. “Looking at these kinds of things ... I feel like I have gotten a chance to know him a bit.” Scrapbooks reveal Hemingway’s early life World of Literature Author’s mother’s writings about him available online.ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTOSThis photo provided by the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library shows the birth certificate and family photograph of Ernest Hemingway from a scrapbook created by h is mother, Grace Hall Hemingway, at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston. The JFK Library and Museum in Boston has digitized pages from five scrapbooks that the mother made to document her son’s ear ly life. Author Ernest Hemingway is shown in this undated photo. For some 25 years, Hemingway’s last full-length work of fiction sat under seal in a Boston archive, read only by his relatives, publishers and a few archivists. Now, ``True at First Light’’ is ready for publica-tion. Edited by the late author’s 70-year-old son, Patrick, the manu-script is a fictionalized account of Hemingway’s 1954 safari to Africa. PARKS: Towns open fantasy parks for dogs Continued From Page 1DEvery day, they get calls from tourists asking about hours and directions. “The more people that come to our city, the more people will stop, eat and buy gas. We are all for that. Out-of-town users are great,” Hamm said. “Anybody who wants to come, we more than wel-come them in town.” Beneful has some requirements — large dogs must be separated from small dogs; the park has to be fenced for off-leash play; and it has to be a public or nonprofit park, open to the public at no charge. “A park is a place for a community to come together. These parks are specifically designed for pet owners and their dogs, but everyone is welcome,” Berkus said. “We’re really looking at it from the dog’s perspective. We will use smart materials that will last a long time, and make sure we factor in pet behav-iors and create not only beautiful fun places but intelligently laid out places as well.” At Alabaster, the dog rules are typical of most dog parks: The off-leash area is for dogs, their han-dlers and those accompa-nying them, dogs have to be vaccinated, puppies and adult females in heat are banned and everyone has to clean up after their own dog. Hamm said except for a few minor fights, there has been no trouble at the park. If there is a fight on your watch, the park has that covered too: A sign tells visitors “How to Break Up a Dog Fight.” Berkus, who has an upcoming NBC show called “American Dream Builders,” is teaming up with contractor Jason Cameron, host of the DIY Network’s “Man Caves,” and Arden Moore, founder of fourleggedlife.com, for the latest contest. So if Berkus were asked to design a $500,000 park for Tucker, what would he do? “I would probably spend $495,000 bringing in squirrels because that’s what Tucker likes. He’s pretty simple. The sky is really the limit. It’s an enormous budget and an enormous contribution to the communities where these parks are built and it really is meant to be a fantasyland.” Online: Q Interior designer Nate Berkus, http://www.nateberkus.com/ Q Beneful Dream Dog Park Contest, http://www.beneful.com/dream-dog-park. ASSOCIATED PRESSA woman poses for photos in front of the restored space shuttle Galileo from the 1960’s television show ‘Star Tre k’ at Space Center Houston in Houston, Texas, on Wednesday.Restored Star Trekspace shuttle Galileo arrives in HoustonBy RAMIT PLUSHNICK-MASTIAssociated PressHOUSTON — When the smoke cleared and the music died down, Candy Torres could no longer con-tain herself. Looking at the shiny, restored Star Trek Galileo shuttlecraft sitting in Houston in all its TV glory, she broke down. “All of a sudden I was just crying. I was in tears. I couldn’t believe it,” Torres said, donning a brown tour-ist engineer hat and a NASA mission operations shirt. “It meant something.” And Torres wasn’t alone. Trekkies of all stripes arrived in Houston Wednesday for the momen-tous unveiling of the shut-tlecraft that crash-landed on a hostile planet in the 1967 “Star Trek” episode called “The Galileo Seven.” Some wore Scotty’s Repair Shop T-shirts, others full-blown spandex outfits worn by Mr. Spock and his peers in the famous TV show and movies that have garnered a following so large and so devoted it is almost cult-like. Adam Schneider paid $61,000 for the battered shuttlecraft in an auction and spent about a year restoring the fiberglass ship and making it look nearly as it did on that episode. He flew in from New York to mark the unveiling at the Space Center Houston, where it will be permanent-ly displayed not far from NASA’s Mission Control. “Unbelievably proud,” he said, beaming alongside the white shuttle. “Like sending your kid to college and having them get a job to build a successful life, because this was under our care for a year and we grew very attached. Jeff Langston, 45, drove more than 160 miles from Austin with his two sons to see the moment. He and his 12-year-old son, Pearce, wore matching red Scotty’s Repair Shop T-shirts. His 10-year-old son, Neo, couldn’t find his shirt, but that didn’t put a damper on the moment. “It was very exciting,” Neo said, bouncing on his feet. “When they filmed Star Trek the Galileo was cool and now that they remade it, it’s cool to see a new version of the Galileo. And it’s beautiful.” Hotel offers pop-up inflatable room By CATHERINE TSAIAssociated PressDENVER — For a limited time, a Denver hotel is offering a package with a one-night stay in a pop-up, inflatable room that rises 22 feet in the air, thanks to a scissor lift on top of the van on which it sits. The cost: $50,000.There is a weight limit. No smoking is allowed. Architect Alex Schweder created the 5-foot-by-7-foot, see-through room atop a van for the Biennial of the Americas festival of arts, culture and ideas in Denver. It has a chemical toilet, shower, sink, inflat-able bed and couch, and curtains. It is being driv-en to parking lots around town through Aug. 23. “It’s a very small room but a very special room,” Schweder said. “You’re always on the top floor.” Now the Curtis hotel, which sponsored the piece, is offering the curious a chance to stay in the aluminum and inflated vinyl structure called “the hotel rehearsal.” Much of Schweder’s work centers on the per-formance of architecture, focusing not so much on a structure but the actions within it. After Schweder learned developers want to turn several Denver park-ing lots into hotels, he cre-ated “the hotel rehearsal” as a foreshadowing of how the space could change. One early draft involved suspending the room from a crane. Schweder was encouraged to keep it more grounded. For $50,000, a guest would get one weekend night in the puffy space, plus lots of extras includ-ing a diamond pendant and earrings, two iPod Nanos and a dance party for 100 people in a ballroom of the Curtis. The inflatable room holds 450 pounds. No alcohol is allowed inside, in hopes of discour-aging people from using it as a bouncy castle. At least one person has inquired about the room, said Kate Thompson, sales director at the Curtis. Schweder said much of the $50,000 will go toward insurance, but customers also will be supporting the future of the Biennial of the Americas. Schweder, who is based in New York and the United Kingdom, spent two nights in the room. While it has curtains, Schweder left the roof uncovered during his stay so he could peer up at the sky.

DEAR ABBY: I’m a 60year-old grandmother of eight wonderful grandchil-dren, ranging in age from 2 to 24. My question is about baby-sitting. I believe my children think we OWE them baby-sitting duties. I don’t mind baby-sitting once in a while, when I feel like it. But I don’t feel like it when the parents want to go out and party, or they tell me at the last minute, “little Susie needs some Grandma time,” or they want to go to the gym because they don’t want to give up the freedom they had before their children came along. What are your thoughts on boundaries for this generation of parents-who-want-it-all at the expense of my generation who, back in the day, if a neighbor kid couldn’t baby-sit, we just stayed home? I know I should have set some rules at the beginning, but I’m starting to feel resentful of their expecta-tions. -WANTS SOME FREEDOM, TOO, IN MINNESOTA DEAR WANTS SOME FREEDOM, TOO: There is truth to the saying that “good fences make good neighbors,” and the phi-losophy applies to many circumstances. Setting clear boundaries makes for healthier relationships. Keep in mind that many grandparents would love to have your “problem.” But as you stated, your problem was in not set-ting ground rules from the beginning. Because you feel resentful, it’s time to have a frank talk with your children and say that as much as the grandkids may “need” Grandma time, Grandma also needs Grandma time. And when you do, be firm -because unless you stand your ground, nothing will change. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I’m 62 years old and a widower. My wife passed away in July 2011. It has taken me a while to get over losing her. I realize how much she did for me as I have been learning how to be a house husband without a wife. My wife told me this was the first house she lived in that had a dishwasher. She was so proud of it! I could never understand why she would wash the dishes before putting them into the dishwasher. Now I have to do it myself, I understand why. My ques-tion is, is there a detergent that will actually CLEAN the dishes? Also, do you have any cute readers who would like to teach an old man how to clean house? -FENDING FOR MYSELF DEAR FENDING: I’m sorry I can’t print your name or location because if I did, you might be crushed in the stampede. If you and your late wife were married 20 or 30 years and the dishwasher was already installed in the house when you moved in, it is now practically an antique. Because you have tried several brands of detergent and your dishes aren’t getting clean, you probably need a new dishwasher. (And I do not mean a cute, young one.) DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21April 19): Make personal changes that will ease your stress and help you relax. Pampering, followed by organizing what you want to accomplish over the upcoming week, is an excellent way to spend the day. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Greater involvement in community or neighbor-ly activities will be benefi-cial. Talks will lead to reso-lutions and partnerships, and personal relationships will turn into prosperous proposals. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Re-evaluate your position and assess your options. Connecting with people you share common interests with will help you decipher what direction is most likely to bring you the highest return. A change will do you good. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Emotional issues will surface if someone pushes or opposes you. Consider what you can do to improve your surround-ings and how you can strive to get along better with someone who can offer you support, love and stability. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get down to basics and make alterations at home that will ease your stress and ensure that you will be able to follow a lifestyle that suits your personality. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Whatever you do to help others will benefit you in the end. Explore your options and reconnect with people you have enjoyed working with in the past. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Listen to what’s being said and avoid getting involved in conversations that can lead to contro-versy. A change may be required in order to feel comfortable in your sur-roundings or with the people you must deal with to get ahead. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Explore new interests. Find out about someone or something you want to become more familiar with. Traveling to a des-tination that will motivate or teach you something new will result in an idea that can help you improve your financial situation. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A financial or physical problem will develop if you are too abrupt or impulsive in the way you do things. You may be enticed by how others are conducting business, but you must be conservative in your deal-ings. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Put more empha-sis on relationships. Do whatever it takes to secure your place in someone’s heart. Speak about your plans or romantic desires and you will enhance a relationship that is impor-tant to you in all aspects of life. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Make sure you are consistent and concise when you discuss your plans for the future. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Make plans to have fun with friends, family or your lover. Taking time out to relax and be pam-pered will set the standard for the way you want to do things in the future. Love is highlighted and a lifestyle change looks posi-tive. +++++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Holiday cheer7 Early round5RFNRUUG 5RFN)URPWKH6XQ 3*$HYHQWSOD\HG RQ)DWKHUV'D\ &RPSDQ\LQD PHUJHUZLWK&KHYURQ 2OG79FRPSRQHQW22 See 36-Across7LFNOHV&RUUHFWV25 Bobble:RUGVZRUWKVBBB WR'XW\ 6KRUWUDFH"BBB3HQLQVXOD2SSRVLWHRI HWHUQDOO\ 6XIIL[ZLWKJUHHQRU bean :LWK$FURVV VKRUWO\ $FFLGHQWPDUNHU6XEMHFWRIPDQ\D ZDU &REUDVIRH44 Melee:KROHBBB6WDPSSHUKDSV ([SUHVV*0&WUXFN51 GPS lines: Abbr.7H[DVDWKOHWLFVLWH'LYHPD\EH0ROGLQJPDWHULDO5REHGUXOHU6HPLQDU\VXEM1HZQHZW&RQV/LNHWKH$FURVV&RPPRQSJVL]HBBBPDJLF$XWRVDIHW\IHDWXUH IRUVKRUW 'HDGHQGMREV SHUKDSV (\HDIIOLFWLRQ3L]]DRUGHU$FRPSXWHUPD\EH LQLW 6HYHQWKOHWWHU&RQ1DUURZYDOOH\V6WURQJVPHOOLQJ cheese 86 Lord or lady1LIW\+RZPDQ\3OD\ER\ bunnies dress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ore curious8QNHPSW*HQHWLFHQ]\PH)LFWLRQDOFKDUDFWHU ZLWKVWHHOSLQFHUVIRUKDQGV *LYHWKHVLOHQW WUHDWPHQW" %HIRUHORQJ SRHWLFDOO\ %HIRUHSRHWLFDOO\:RUGVWROLYHE\([SRVHG)DLOHGLQYHVWPHQW2IIFRXUVH7RELNRLQ-DSDQHVH cuisine 43 Bloody$%HDWOH3RRUO\LQVXODWHG say +HZURWH,H[LVW WKDWLVDOODQG,ILQGLWQDXVHDWLQJ 49 Bobble+RRNVKDQG:DNHXSWLPHVIRU VKRUW 7RONLHQFUHDWXUHV,PSUHVVLYHJROIVKRW0DQ\D'UHDP$FW EHQHILFLDU\ 'RZQLQQRYDWLRQ/DWLQYHUE *HWGRZQSDW8SWRWKHWDVN1RUWKHDVWXQLYHUVLW\ WRZQ *HWXS3DFSOD\HU:LQWHUVSULQNOH'LVFKDUJH(QGLQJZLWKF\WR6SDFHURFNPD\EH/LVWHQGHU $FURVV colloquially /LNH6KUHZ%LWRI79UHDOHVWDWH3HDUO%XFNKHURLQH:KHUH'RZQV FRPSDQ\JHWVDQ)" %RRNZRUPPD\EH &DVWLQJVRXUFHIRU VRPH+ZRRGFRPHGLHV +RVHKROGHU+DUYH\RI7D[L 'ULYHU &RQHILOOHU7KH%LJ%DQJ 7KHRU\FRFUHDWRU&KXFN ([WLQJXLVK /RWV7LSIRUDUHSRUWHU PD\EH 6WDWXVTXRBBB%UHZHU\IL[WXUH&RRNHRIVRXO)RU%\JRQHIOLHU3KRHQL[WR Albuquerque dir.

By ELIZABETH KARMELAssociated PressThis is the dish that started my love affair with grilling and barbecue! North Carolina-style pulled pork! Because when I moved away from my home state of North Carolina, I realized that I was going to have to teach myself to make pulled pork or only enjoy it once a year when I went home to visit. In North Carolina, barbecue is a noun, and it is defined as pulled pork with a distinctive tangy vin-egar sauce or “dip” as it is called in some parts of the state. No sweet tomato sauce allowed! The pork is either “pulled” into pieces or chopped with a meat clever, and dressed with the thin pep-pery sauce. The succulent pork is spooned onto a plate, or on a classic white hamburger bun — no sesame seeds, ever! — and topped with slaw. And the slaw is as straight forward as the pork — chopped green cabbage tossed with the same vinegar sauce. The first time that I made it, I cooked a couple of pork butts on a gas grill using indirect heat and a low temperature. A couple of soaked hickory wood chunks scented the meat and I cooked the butts until the fat was com-pletely rendered and the top resembled cracklins. I also improvised and created my own vinegar dip to sauce the pork as I pulled it. I had no idea what the proportions were and I literally made it by taste memory. Apple-cider vinegar was the base, a touch of ketchup sweet-ened and colored the sauce that was hot with three kinds of pep-per — black, white and red pep-per flakes. The flakes are the sign of authentic North Carolina dressed pork, as they stick to the meat and pepper it with mild heat and red color. White sugar and kosher salt balance the heat and the tang of the vinegar. Dark brown sugar adds a depth of flavor. The sauce is simple to make, but the effect is anything but simple. It cuts through the rich-ness of the smoked meat and enhances it rather than cover it up like heavier barbecue sauces can. When I take the time and the passion to barbecue, I want to taste the meat, not the sauce. This is the beauty of a North Carolina vinegar sauce; it doesn’t cover up the silky, smoky, cara-melized pork that is the star of the sandwich. You can make the sauce and the slaw while the pork is cook-ing, or you can make them the day before. The key to great North Carolina-style barbecue is being patient. There isn’t a fancy rub or a mop or a lot of tending to do. Cook the pork over a consis-tent indirect heat until it reaches an internal temperature of about 195 F. That is a higher temperature than most books will tell you, but that is the necessary tem-perature to make all of the con-nective tissues break down. The meat becomes so tender that all you need to pull it is two forks. I’m old fashioned and never use a cleaver. That’s chopped pork and that’s a whole other thing entirely!NORTH CAROLINA-STYLE PULLED PORK SANDWICH North Carolina barbecue is seasoned by time and wood smoke! Remember, the larger your piece of meat, the longer it will take to cook. And there is no rushing real barbecue. Start to finish: 6 hoursServings: 10Ingredients:Hickory wood chips, soaked in water for 30 minutes 7to 9-pound bone-in pork butt or Boston Butt Olive oilKosher salt and ground black pepper Barbecue sauce (see recipe below) North Carolina coleslaw (see recipe below) 10 unseeded hamburger bunsInstructions:Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for low heat, indirect cooking. For a charcoal grill, this means banking the coals to one side. For a gas grill, turn off the heat on one side. Aim to maintain a temperature of 300 F. Do not trim any excess fat off the pork; this fat will naturally baste the meat and keep it moist during the long cooking time. Brush the pork with a thin coat-ing of olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. Set aside on a clean tray until ready to cook. Before placing the meat on the grill, add soaked wood chips. For a charcoal grill, place the chips directly on white-gray ash briquettes. For a gas grill, use a smoking box according to prod-uct directions. If using a charcoal grill, you will need to add char-coal every hour during cooking to maintain the heat. Place the pork in the center of the cooking grate fat-side up. Cook slowly for 5 to 6 hours at 300 F, or until a thermometer inserted at the middle of the pork registers 190 F to 200 F. The meat should be very tender and falling apart. If there is a bone in the meat, it should come out smoothly and cleanly, with no meat clinging to it. There is no need to turn the meat during the entire cooking time. Let the meat rest for 20 minutes, or until cool enough to han-dle. Using 2 forks, pull the meat from the skin, bones and fat. Set aside any crispy bits of fat that have been completely ren-dered and look almost burned. Working quickly, use the forks to shred the chunks of meat by crossing the forks and “pulling” the meat into small pieces. While the meat is still warm, mix with enough barbecue sauce to moisten and season the meat, about 3/4 cup to 1 cup. The recipe can be made in advance up to this point and reheated in a double boiler with about 1/4 cup additional sauce. Serve on white hamburger buns and top with North Carolina coleslaw. Serve additional sauce on the side, if desired. NORTH CAROLINA BARBECUE SAUCE This recipe makes enough to use for both the pork and the coleslaw.

FOOD Patience is needed to achieve quality, authentic product. Pigs smart as dogs? Activists pose the questionBY DAVID CRARYAP National WriterNEW YORK — There’s extensive evidence that pigs are as smart and socia-ble as dogs. Yet one spe-cies is afforded affection and respect; the other faces mass slaughter en route to becoming bacon, ham and pork chops. Seeking to capitalize on that discrepancy, ani-mal-welfare advocates are launching a campaign called The Someone Project that aims to highlight research depicting pigs, chickens, cows and other farm ani-mals as more intelligent and emotionally complex than commonly believed. The hope is that more peo-ple might view these ani-mals with the same empa-thy that they view dogs, cats, elephants, great apes and dolphins. “When you ask people why they eat chickens but not cats, the only thing they can come up with is that they sense cats and dogs are more cognitive-ly sophisticated that then species we eat — and we know this isn’t true,” said Bruce Friedrich of Farm Sanctuary, the animal-pro-tection and vegan-advocacy organization that is coordi-nating the new project. “What it boils down to is people don’t know farm animals the way they know dogs or cats,” Friedrich said. “We’re a nation of animal lovers, and yet the animals we encounter most frequently are the animals we pay people to kill so we can eat them.” The lead scientist for the project is Lori Marino, a lecturer in psychology at Emory University who has conducted extensive research on the intelli-gence of whales, dolphins and primates. She plans to review existing scientific literature on farm animals’ intelligence, identify areas warranting new research, and prepare reports on her findings that would be circulated worldwide via social media, videos and her personal attendance at scientific conferences. “I want to make sure this is all taken seriously,” Marino said in an interview. “The point is not to rank these animals but to re-educate people about who they are. They are very sophisticated animals.” For Marino and Friedrich, who are both vegans, the goals of the project are two-fold — to build broader public support for humane treatment of farm animals and to boost the ranks of Americans who choose not to eat meat. “This project is not a way to strong-arm people into going vegan overnight but giving them a fresh per-spective and maybe mak-ing them a little uncomfort-able,” Marino said. “Maybe they’ll be thinking, ‘Hmm, I didn’t know cows and pigs could recog-nize each other and have special friends,’” she said. “That might make them squirm a little, but that’s OK.” The major associations representing chicken and pork producers say the farmers they represent already have taken strides to minimize cruel treatment of farm animals. “While animals raised for food do have a certain degree of intelligence, Farm Sanctuary is seeking to humanize them to advance its vegan agenda — an end to meat consumption,” said David Warner of the National Pork Producers Council. “While vegans have a right to express their opinion — and we respect that right — they should not force their lifestyle on others.” Gwen Venable of the U.S. Poultry and Egg Association said poultry provides a valu-able, affordable source of protein. “Consumers should be able choose their food based on their own dietary preferences and nutritional needs and without being unduly influenced by any one group’s personal agen-da,” she wrote in an email. “We do not feel that Farm Sanctuary’s campaign is rea-sonable, as the campaign’s ultimate goal would be to eradicate poultry and pork from consumers’ diets.” Thomas Super of the National Chicken Council said efforts to link farm ani-mals with household pets was part of a strategy to create a “meat-free society.” He also contended that the farmers and companies involved in raising chickens have a vested interest in ensuring they are healthy and well-treated. While The Someone Project will encompass several species of farm animals, pigs are likely to be one of the prime subjects, given the breadth of past studies of their intel-ligence and behavior. Some researchers say pigs’ cog-nitive abilities are superior to 3-year-old children, as well as to dogs and cats. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has a section on its website entitled “The Hidden Lives of Pigs” which depicts them as social, playful and protective animals with a vocabulary of more than 20 different oinks, grunts and squeaks. “Pigs are known to dream, recognize their own names, learn tricks like sit-ting for a treat, and lead social lives of a complexity previously observed only in primates,” the website says. “Like humans, pigs enjoy listening to music, playing with soccer balls, and getting massages.” The website recounts news stories of pigs sav-ing the lives of imperiled humans and saving them-selves by jumping off trucks bound for slaugh-terhouses. Treatment of pigs has been a political issue in sev-eral states due to efforts to pass laws banning the con-finement of breeding pigs in gestation crates. Friedrich said he makes the most headway with state legislators on this issue when he argues that pigs are more cognitively and emotionally advanced than dogs or cats. “They would recoil in horror if dogs and cats were subjected to the same conditions,” he said.
