By AMANDA WILLIAMSON email@example.com W ant to known the lat-est updates about your childs school, report an incident or glance through the Columbia County School Districts event calendar theres an app for that. The district announced its plans to release the mobile application for iPhone and Android users on August 27 at the School Board meeting, and it intends to have the app fully updated by Friday. It is currently available for down-load, said Safe Schools Coordinator Gloria Spivey. Simply log into the Apple iTunes Store or Google Play Store, search for Columbia County School District and click download. The app is free. Columbia County School Districts official mobile app empowers anyone in the community to stay connected with the information they want and need right on their mobile devices, School Superintendent Terry Huddleston said in a prepared statement. The release of this app for the district is an exam-ple of our commit-ment to provide our com-munity members all of the districts information conveniently and easily, while making it more accessible than ever. App users can find directions, messages from the school system, emergen-cy procedures and school calendars. Recently, Mobile App Pro contacted the school district with the proposed project. After school officials met with the company, they decided the app was something needed to improve school safety within the county. It gives the district the chance to send e-mails and push notifications to parents and com-munity members in case of an emer-gency at the school. For instance, if a local school is evacuated, the app will be able to relay to parents where their children were evacuated to, when the students can be picked up and what the parents need to be able to pick up their children. [The app] is much easier than the website, Spivey said. The thing the superintendent really liked about it is that it puts all the districts digital infor-mation in one place... Its really a one-stop shop. Spivey said the app will help with rumor control by allowing the school district to control the message. When an emergency situation occurs within the county, the school employees will be able to alert parents about the inci-dent.

The county has four confirmed cases of whooping cought, also known as pertussis one isolated incident about two months back and three in the last six weeks, said Columbia County Heath Department Director of Nursing Marjorie Rigdon. The health department usually does not see any cases of whoop-ing cough in the area, as the disease had nearly been eradicated by vaccina-tion. However, a recent trend in parents refusing to vaccinate their children has allowed pertussis to re-establish itself, health officials say.

Bill Procko, skateboarder and project coor-dinator, said the Tony Hawk Foundation offered the town a $5,000 grant if the community could match the donation. The community had already raised approxi-mately $22,200 as well as an in-kind donation from the city of the fill dirt necessary to level the foundation. However, terms of the grant require the town raise another $5,000. Procko esti-mates the entire project cost at $150,000. This is such a hugely positive thing for the community, he said.

AROUND FLORIDA Friday: 1-18-30-37 (2) Friday: 4-9-11-12-32 Saturday: Afternoon: 8-6-6 Evening: N/A Saturday: Afternoon: 4-5-2-0 Evening: N/A Wednesday: 6-14-37-41-48-49 x2 NASA launches robotic explorer to moon By MARCIA DUNN AP Aerospace Writer NASAs newest robotic explorer rocketed into space late Friday in an unprecedented moonshot from Virginia that dazzled sky watchers along the East Coast. But the LADEE space craft quickly ran into equipment trouble, and while NASA assured everyone early Saturday that the lunar probe was safe and on a perfect track for the moon, officials acknowledged the problem needs to be resolved in the next two to three weeks. S. Peter Worden, direc tor of NASAs Ames Research Center in California, which devel oped the spacecraft, told reporters hes confident everything will be working properly in the next few days. LADEEs reaction wheels were turned on to orient and stabilize the spacecraft, which was spinning too fast after it separated from the final rocket stage, Worden said. But the computer auto matically shut the wheels down, apparently because of excess current. He speculated the wheels may have been running a little fast. Worden stressed there is no rush to get these bugs ironed out. The LADEE spacecraft, which is charged with studying the lunar atmo sphere and dust, soared aboard an unmanned Minotaur rocket a little before midnight from Virginias Eastern Shore. Godspeed on your journey to the moon, LADEE, Launch Control said. Flight controllers applauded and exchanged high-fives following the successful launch. We are headed to the moon! NASA said in a tweet. It was a change of venue for NASA, which normally launches moon missions from Cape Canaveral, Fla. But it provided a rare light show along the East Coast for those blessed with clear skies. NASA urged sky watchers to share their launch pictures through the website Flickr, and the photos and sighting reports quickly poured in from New York City, Boston, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, New Jersey, Rhode Island, eastern Pennsylvania and Virginia, among other places. The Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer or LADEE, pronounced LA-dee, is taking a roundabout path to the moon, making three huge laps around Earth before getting close enough to pop into lunar orbit. Unlike the quick threeday Apollo flights to the moon, LADEE will need a full month to reach Earths closest neighbor. An Air Force Minotaur V rocket, built by Orbital Sciences Corp., provided the ride from NASAs Wallops Flight Facility. LADEE, which is the size of a small car, is expected to reach the moon on Oct. 6. Man lost leg, job due to heroism BOYNTON BEACH Angel Soto Jr. knows how good it feels to be a hero. On Oct. 29, as he was helping a man who had just been in a car crash on Old Boynton Road, another vehicle slammed into Sotos right leg so hard doctors were forced to amputate. Despite his injury, Soto managed to spare the man from more serious injuries, or even death. It was an act many called heroic. Almost 11 months later, this father and husband concedes his heroism came with a price. With one amputated leg and the other healing from a fracture, Soto had to quit his job as a security guard. He, his wife, Eileen, and their four children had to break their lease at their apartment and move in with his parents in Boynton Beach. There the family of six is crammed into a small living room, surrounded by boxes and keepsakes Sotos father refuses to toss. The summer has been particularly brutal, Soto said, since his parents live old-school style and have no air conditioner in the house. A faulty well water sys tem means their water sup ply is hit or miss. While Sotos wife and kids often shower at a neighbors house, Soto has a difficult time getting into her bath tub because of his pros thetic leg. Instead, he said, he showers at a nearby YMCA. At the time of the accident, Soto said, he was living paycheck to paycheck and just had a couple hundred dollars in savings. He used some of that money to pay for a storage unit that housed personal belongings and his beloved keyboard and disc-jockey equipment. Soto was eventually forced to pawn his musical equipment. Just weeks ago, his truck was repossessed, meaning he lost the only vehicle he and his wife had to take their 8and 12-yearold sons to school. His two older children have yet to start the school year. They have run into some trouble, Soto said, including a recent fistfight at home. Soto tried to intervene, he said, but hes just not strong enough to stand between two teenag ers angry because their family is struggling. I lost my job, I lost my home, I lost my leg, Soto said. I have a lot more losses than a lot more wins. Soto and his wife filed a lawsuit against David Plotkin, the driver of the Porsche that hit him. Records, however, show Sotos wife filed to dismiss the case in December. No charges were filed in the accident. While Soto deals with financial struggles, he has also had to learn how to walk with a new prosthetic leg. He has medical cover age, which has paid for some rehabilitation ses sions. By TAMARA LUSH Associated Press ORLANDO Walking into Universal Orlandos new themed area is a bit surreal. First, you hear familiar music. Then you spot the sign: Greetings from SPRINGFIELD U.S.A. And then you get a faint whiff of doughnuts. The hometown from the animated TV series The Simpsons has been brought to life in a theme park. The full Springfield experience opened to the public in the park in August. Universal has slowly been adding to the area for years, building it around The Simpsons ride that opened in 2008. With a new ride the Kang and Kodos Twirl n Hurl and a food court that includes Moes Tavern, the shows beloved watering hole, the area is now com plete. Other attractions found in both the show and the park include the Krustyland carnival area and the Kwik-E-Mart, a convenience store on TV and a gift shop at Universal. Park designers worked with the shows creators and writers to build a richly detailed environment where visitors can spend hours eating and snapping selfies in front of a statue of Chief Wiggum and his police car. The goal: to make people feel like they were stepping into the cartoon. We call it authentic fiction, said Ric Florell, Universals senior vice president and general manager of resort revenue operations. While most of the details in Springfield mirror the TV show, there are a few tweaked concepts. Take the Twirl n Hurl, for instance. Its based on the two aliens on the show, and riders experience a spinning saucer movement while different Simpsons characters crack jokes. Its a pretty calm ride, appro priate for all but the smallest of chil dren. Theres been no actual hurling, yet, laughed Mike West, executive producer at Universal Creative. Theres also a new kiosk where visitors can have their photo taken on a replica of the Simpsons family sofa. And while the bold colors, funny signs in the queue of the Twirl n Hurl, and brash Krusty the Clown character meet-and-greets are fun, the most impressive part is the food. Universal executives said that food is almost another character in the show, and it was a natural to show case that while telling the Simpsons story in the park. Theres a lot of food in the TV episodes, said Florell. We had to decide, whats iconic? Steven Jayson, executive chef at Universal Parks and Resorts, said that it took the better part of a year to create 28 new dishes for the area. All of the menu items can only be found in Springfield, and everything is made from scratch in Universals kitchens, he added. Not unexpectedly, given Homer Simpsons diet on the show, health consciousness hasnt exactly arrived in Springfield (although there is a nod to Lisa Simpsons love of sal ads in Lisas Teahouse of Horror, a self-serve area where folks can grab hummus, greens and pretzels). The food is mostly concentrated in one building, called Fast Food Boulevard, and the mall-like store fronts are based on restaurants from the show. Theres the Krusty Burger, named after the cigar-smoking clown. Its a basic burger, save for the special sauce and gooey cheese. For a larger burger, theres the Clogger Burger, which involves two patties and bacon. Or a self-explanatory Chicken and Waffle Sandwich. Bumblebee Mans Taco Truck is new, and sells an unexpected option: Korean beef tacos. All of the food is either named after something on the show or something that Bart Simpson could conceivably say in a snarky tone: Chicken Thumbs. Heat Lamp Dog. Meat Likers Pizza. One of Homer Simpsons favorite things doughnuts are avail able in two sizes: regular and huge.

From staff reports LIVE OAKLaugh Out Loud Comedy Night is coming to The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park Friday. Admission is free. Laugh Out Loud Comedy Night features Matt Watts of Lake City, along with Josh Davis, Chris Buck and Herman Nazworth. The show is recommended for 18 and over. Watts grew up in Lake City but got his start at The Comedy Zone in Jacksonville. He started out doing open mics and even tually worked his way up as an emcee. He has toured throughout the Southeast and performed as far west as Austin, Texas. In 2006 Watts appeared on the NBC series, Last Comic Standing, and was also featured on a FOX tele vision series, On the Lot, for one episode in 2007. Matt earned a bachelors degree in performing arts from Full Sail University in Orlando, Fla in 2009. He released his first comedy album, entitled, Mr. Clown Roberts, in 2012, which included a live 30-minute set and three songs. With influ ences such as Adam Sandler, Jerry Seinfeld, and Mitch Hedberg, Matt delivers a unique display of one liners, observational humor and music. He recently opened for Chris Tucker at the Laughing Skull Comedy Club in Atlanta, the city where he currently resides. Matt tours regularly throughout the Southeast as a feature act. The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park is located at 3076 95th Drive, Live Oak, 4.5 miles south of Interstate 75 and 4.5 miles north of Interstate 10 off US 129. important, but the econo my impacts would be far greater and outweighed if CWD (the disease) gets transmitted into our state, Commissioner Ron Bergeron said during a meeting in Pensacola. Lake City hunter Dewey Weaver, a former FWC spokesman, endorsed the move. He said the FWC is basi cally doing what has been done in the past by agricul tural farms to make sure cattle are not infected by diseases. If you think about it, a lot of the problems we have in Florida come from exotic animals and exotic plants, he said. Anything thats not native to Florida is exotic ... and the deer imported into Florida are really not the same white tailed deer seen in Florda. There are no deer farms in Columbia County, but is at least one in Lake Butler. In addition to an execu tive order to immediately close the borders, the com mission directed staff to develop additional rules intended to reduce the risk of spreading the dis ease, increase inspections and educate hunters about transporting carcasses. Commissioner Adrien Bo Rivard said its better now to err on the side of pro tecting the long-term well being of fish and wildlife, though hes philosophically opposed to the addition of new regulations. He said the ban could be lifted if improved preventive mea sures are found. The vote comes with backing from several state lawmakers, includ ing Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, who was among a group of legisla tors who initially opposed the ban but changed their tune in July, saying the sci entific case for closing the border was stronger. The disease has spread since being first detected in free-ranging populations in the mid-1980s around northeastern Colorado and southeastern Wyoming. The disease has been described as similar to Mad Cow disease, with animals becoming emaciated and often being found isolated and trembling. Chronic Wasting Disease is not known to affect peo ple. Critics of the ban, includ ing the Southeast Trophy Deer Association, contend that closing the border will actually increase the chance for the disease to turn up in Florida. They envision an increase in smuggling, increasing the risk that deer from impacted areas will be brought into Florida to make up for a drop in the amount of deer available for hunts. Steve Munz, a deer farm er from Sumter County, argued that the state and proponents of the ban were using misleading informa tion and proposed the com mission instead increase permitting costs as a means to improve enforcement to check for the disease. Im not for taxes and more money, Im for what makes sense in life, Munz said. Several opponents of the ban recommended the state consider changing a requirement that imported deer come from herds that have been certified diseasefree for at least five years. They suggested doubling the standard to 10 years. Shawn Schafer, execu tive director of the North American Deer Farmers Association, said the state should consider an increase in monitoring of herds rather than prohibit the cross-border move ment of deer. For Florida to say (the disease) is not here, youre not testing enough, Schafer said. If you test enough animals youre probably going to find it. But powerful backers of the ban said the rule is critical to preserving the future of hunting in Florida and for those who enjoy the outdoors. Marion Hammer, rep resenting the National Rifle Association and the Florida Veterinary Medical Association, contended that a few deer farmers and preserve operators were putting their self-interests above the long-term out look for hunting in Florida. Leaving the border open even a crack exposes us to damage that is not revers ible, Hammer said during the meeting, which was broadcast across the state by The Florida Channel. If CWD gets into Florida we will never be the same, it can never be reversed. It will affect our wildlife, our soil, and potentially our citizens. Other groups and orga nizations in support of the ban include the United Sportsmen of Florida, the Quality Deer Management Association, the Florida Bowhunters Council, the Florida Chapters of the Safari Club International and the Humane Society of the U.S. Philip Bryan, vice presi dent of the Florida Deer Association, said protecting native deer species is the most important thing. Since we didnt close it in June, in the month of August more deer has come in in one month than in any other time, Bryan said. The commission in June delayed a vote so more information could be gathered on the potential impacts of a ban, both eco nomically and in the effec tiveness of keeping out the disease. Commission staff noted Friday that since the start of the year 800 cervids --600 just in August --have been permitted to be imported by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. The number is up from 295 permitted in all of 2012. The state has about 300 deer and game farms and 100 hunting preserves. Clifford Shipley, a Chronic Wasting Disease expert from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, said the actual source of the dis ease remains unknown and there is no known cure. It is a death sentence to a deer farm, Shipley said. If an animal is found with the disease, the entire population in the area, freeranging or farmed, would need to be eradicated in order to prevent further spreading. Currently, to reduce the chances of the disease entering Florida, the state also prohibits most deer from being imported from states and Canadian prov inces where infected popu lations have been found. The disease has been found in 22 states, with eight added to the list since 2010. None of the states where the disease has been detected are in the Southeast. Florida now joins 18 other states that have banned the importation of deer, includ ing all of Floridas neigh bors. The new rule does exempt zoos, which would be allowed to bring in most cervids --except for white-tailed deer --from out-of-state facilities that have been cleared of the disease.

Waseem Khan, M.D., Chairman Murphy appointed to LSHA board By TONY BRITT email@example.com Timothy B. Tim Murphy was appoint ed by Gov. Rick Scott to serve as a mem ber of the Lake Shore Hospital Authority Board. Dekoven R. Koby Adams and Dr. Waseem Khan were also reappointed to serve on the board. Murphy, 52, of Lake City, has been the owner of Murphy Fabrication Inc. since 1990. He has been a member of the Columbia County Resources Board since 2012 and president of Lake City, Columbia County Youth Baseball since 1998. Murphy fills a vacant seat and is appointed for a term beginning Sept. 5 and ending July 20, 2016. I was happy to get the appointment, Murphy said during a telephone inter view Friday afternoon. It will give me an opportunity to lookout for the tax payers of Columbia County and provide indigent healthcare for the community. l look forward to working with the other board members and will strive to continue to bring quality healthcare to Columbia County. Adams, 55, of Lake City, is the owner of the Adams Agency Inc. He has served on the Columbia County Housing Authority and is a member of the Lake City Kiwanis Club.

All three of them are real good people and two of them have been on the board for about five years. Theyve done an outstanding job. Khan is the current board chairman for 2013 and Adams served as the chairman for 2011-12. All three of these guys were personally interviewed by the governor, Berry said. The governor we have now has a policy where he personally interviews everyone going on a Hospital Authority District. The Lake Shore Hospital Authority Board is a special taxing authority that was created to build hospitals in the county, mainly to provide medical services for residents Columbia County. The Authority was created in 1953, and back then was called the Lake City Hospital District. It has evolved into the Lake Shore Hospital Authority. The governor appoints all mem bers to the board. There are seven spots on the Lake Shore Hospital Authority Board, but cur rently there is a vacancy.

We dont know when that will be, but it will take time, he said. Murphy DEER: Fla.

A n important new book addresses the question of global poverty, but does so by provoking the reader to also consider our own nation and demand that we better understand ourselves and the wellsprings of our own suc-cess. Two evangelical Christians teamed up to write Poverty of Nations: A Sustainable Solution. One is Barry Asmus, senior economist at the National Center for Policy Analysis. The other is Wayne Grudem, research professor of theology and biblical studies at Phoenix Seminary. What accounts for the astounding success of our nation, the worlds most prosperous but also, at just 227 years old, one of the worlds youngest? The mystery of the nature and sources of wealth and poverty is far from new, and Asmus and Grudem survey the vast literature dealing with this most basic question. They also review the long experience of attempts by governments to design policies to alleviate and eradicate poverty in their own country and in others. In the end, the picture that emerges appears quite clear. Over thousands of years of human expe-rience -going through economic arrangements such as tribalism, slavery, feudalism, mercantilism, socialism and communism and wel-fare statism -no arrangement can compare in creating new value, pro-duction of goods and services, and prosperity, like the free market. However, despite the success of free market economies, they are regularly subject to political challenge because of the ongoing human desire to understand the ghost in the machine, so to speak, and control it and its outcomes. How does it work? How does this prosperity happen when no one seems to be in charge? The authors help the lay reader understand key aspects of free mar-kets that make them work so well: ownership and private property, the vital information conveyed by prices in the marketplace and profits and losses of business, specialization and competition, and creativity and entrepreneurship. But they add a key addition to the equation, often forgotten, ignored or dismissed in discussions about free market economies. That is the importance of individual virtue. The book is filled with biblical citations showing that biblical prin-ciples and virtue are not just com-patible with free markets, but vital to their functioning. With all the abstract discussions about public policy, with our great ambition to develop systems, we tend to forget, incredibly, that the core component of human systems is individual, unique human beings -each a unique universe unto himself or herself. We should wonder how we have so many discussions about freedom and so few about individual free choice and personal responsibility and the existence of good and evil that make individual responsibility and choice so important. This important book reminds us of the inseparability of economic freedom and individual virtue and responsibility. The American civil rights movement was inspired and animated by images of the Bible -the Israelites enslaved in Egypt, their leader demanding Let my people go. But the movement made a grave error in overlooking that the reason for seeking liberation from Egypt was so Israelites could go and receive the law and live according to it, freely, in their own land. Freedom is more than removal of external barriers of oppression and limitation. It demands that individu-als personally adopt principles of truth and virtue so that they may govern their own lives and live suc-cessfully with others. The loss of this perspective has cost black Americans economic progress. Now our whole nation flounders as more Americans of all back-grounds turn to government and political power for answers rather than freedom and personal virtue and responsibility.E ight Sundays back we strongly questioned the commitment of our state senator, Charlie Dean of Inverness, to repairing dam-age already done and preventing future degradation to Ichetucknee Springs, the crown jewel of North Central Forida. With only $10 million to divide among all Floridas freshwater springs, we wondered, based on published statements by Dean as well as an interview, whether he was com-mitted to seeing us get our fair share of the funds. While Dean wasnt the final arbiter of where the money would go, as chairman of the Senate Environmental Preservation and Conservation Committee, he would have considerable say in how the Department of Enviromental Protection would disperse the funds. Silver Springs, right in the heart of Senate District 5, had been the recipient of far more media attention than Ichetucknee, and it appeared Dean might favor spending the lions share of the money in Marion County a stones throw from his old political stomping grounds. That wasnt the case.While Silver Springs did get more total funding than Ichetucknee, most of that came from outside sources the pot having been sweet-ened considerably by contributions from water management districts and local partners. We were pleased to see that Ichetucknee Springs got nearly $4 million of the original $10 million enough, with additional supplied funds, to cover the entire cost of a proposed wetlands project at the park. Thank you for your role in working to save the Ichetucknee, Sen. Dean. None of this in any way lessens the role of Lake Citys own Elizabeth Porter, who has fought tirelessly on our behalf since her elec-tion to the House of Representatives in 2010. Her commitment to preserving the natural beauty of our homeland never came into ques-tion, and we applaud her continuing efforts on our behalf. As Porter has noted time and again, however, the problems we face cant be solved in a single legislative session. There is a great deal more to be done.And, as always, that means more money.Lets hope our friends in Tallahasse are at least as successful in aiding our efforts next time around. T he summer, which otherwise produced a spate of positive eco-nomic news, ended on a depressing and worrisome note on the jobs front. The headline number was that the unemployment rate fell to 7.3 percent in August, the lowest level in nearly five years, down from 7.4 percent in July. But the fine print attributes the drop to fewer Americans actively looking for work and thus not being counted as unemployed. And figures revised by the U.S. Department of Labor show that the summer hiring numbers were not as rosy as first seemed. The June and July hiring figures were scaled back a combined 74,000. July went from 162,000 to 104,000, the fewest in more than a year, and June from 188,000 to 172,000. And most of those jobs were in relatively low-wage indus-tries. The August figure was 169,000, but one has to wonder whether if even that lackluster figure will stand up on re-examination. To put those figures in gloomy perspective, from 2012 right up until this summers employment flop, the economy had been adding an average of just over 180,000 jobs a month. The labor-force participation rate -the percentage of Americans working or actively looking for work, which has been diminishing in any case -fell from 63.4 percent to 63.2 percent, the lowest in 35 years. Economists debate whether this represents a long-term structural change in the U.S. workforce or whether it is the continuing aftermath of the reces-sion. But the unemployment figures contrasted dramatically with other positive economic reports. The Institute for Supply Management trade group reported, for example, that manufacturers last month expanded at the fastest pace in more than two years and service firms grew at the fastest pace in more than eight. What Wall Street wanted to know was what the new jobless figures meant for Federal Reserve plans to slow and eventually stop its quan-titative easing, under which it cur-rently buys $85 billion a month in T-bills and mortgage bonds to keep interest rates low. The Fed had been expected to reduce its bond-buying by $20 bil-lion a month starting this fall, but observers say that could be scaled back to $10 billion a month and maybe delayed altogether depend-ing on what happens in Syria and whether the more rabid House Republicans succeed in bringing government to a halt either by refusing to raise the debt ceiling or refusing to fund government agen-cies if their appropriations contain money for the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. Much more than just the jobless figures depend on what happens this fall.

STEVEN RICHMOND/ Lake City Reporter Afternoon stroll Its a beautiful day, observed John Deer during a leisurely stroll outside Hillside Apartments on Church Avenue Saturday afternoon.
Lander said. Currently, the Columbia County Health Department is trying to identify a link between the three most recent cases. As the investi gation is in the preliminary stage, officials are unsure if a connection will be found. Lander said the depart ment analyzes confirmed cases to see if there is a cluster. If we have a cluster, we know thats an area of concentration where the disease is being spread, he said. [This disease] is very serious, and its here in Columbia County. The disease has made a resurgence in Florida and elsewhere, most notably Texas. More than 2,000 cases two of them fatal have been reported there this year, health officials say. Whooping cough is a bacterial infection that affects the respiratory sys tem. The disease usually causes violent, uncontrol lable coughing that results in all the air being expelled from the lungs, causing the victim to inhale with a loud whooping sound, accord ing to the Centers for Disease Control. However, in babies, the cough may be minimal. Instead the infant can experience apnea, or a pause in the breathing pattern. Parents should initially be on the lookout for run ning nose, sneezing, mild cough and apnea. After a week or so, the mild symp toms develop into severe coughing fits that make it hard to breathe, eat, drink or sleep. Usually these fits occur at night. Babies and young children may turn blue while coughing from lack of air, states the Center for Disease Control. The disease spreads through the air when an infected person breathes, coughs or sneezes. Rigdon asks that chil dren who exhibit a cough seek diagnosis and treat ment from a pediatrician or family physician. Even if a child has already had whooping cough, he or she are still susceptible to a recurring bacterial infec tion. Pregnant women who feel they may have been exposed to the disease should also be seen by a physician. In addition to the resurgence of pertussis, Columbia County Health Department and the nation are experiencing a short age of the DTaP vaccine for adults. If an adult feels he or she may need to be vaccinated, contact the health department to see if they can reach out to sur rounding counties for the vaccine. Childrens vaccines are currently available at the health department free of charge. The health depart ment can be reached at 386-758-1068. the community to rely on the rumor mill. We think its going to be an asset to us all around, Spivey said. Its very cutting edge. We dont know of any other school district in North Florida that has this. Lake City Medical cen ter sponsored the app by providing $4,000 for devel opment costs, and the promise to pay the applica tions annual fee of $1,500 for the next three years. If the program is beneficial to the community, then the district will find a way to continue funding after the three years expires. The medical center presented a check to the district at the August 27 school board meeting. I dont want people to think this is just for parents and school children, Spivey said. Were all connected to children in some way. Were going to make the app very community friendly. The Columbia County School District asks that the public report feedback about the app in the app itself through the Praise Report or Report an Incident features. Spivey specifically asks that users of the app tell the district what else they would like to see on the application. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER NEWS SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 8, 2013 Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 6A Assisted Living Life is Good Here!

Dems face divide over Syria strike By KEN THOMAS Associated Press WASHINGTON President Barack Obamas pursuit of a mili tary strike in Syria has put con gressional Democrats and party leaders around the country in a tough spot. They face loud opposition from war-weary constituents at home and are wary of being pulled into another foreign conflict. But they also are confronted with grim images from Syria of gassed chil dren and the pleas of a president from their own political party to consider the consequences of inac tion. Breaking from Democrats long history of being the party typi cally opposed to military conflict, Obama is pushing for a limited mil itary strike in Syria in response to President Bashar Assads alleged use of chemical weapons. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have rallied behind him. But some liberal and moder ate Democrats, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan fresh in their minds, have begun joining doz ens of conservative Republicans registering their opposition. And many rank-and-file Democrats are undecided on whether to sup port a congressional resolution for military action, questioning whether it would turn the tide in a bloody civil war, whether its in the U.S. national interest and whether it would prompt Assad to retaliate with more chemical weapons. Emerging from a closed-door briefing on Thursday, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, an Iraq war veteran, said she wanted answers about what would happen after a U.S. attack but her own military experience was giving her great pause before making a decision.
By STEVEN RICHMOND firstname.lastname@example.org A local woman is facing felony charg es after Lake City police found probable cause to arrest her for neglect after finding her child playing outside, LCPD reports. Brittany Denise Reese, of 457 SE Bennie Lane, was visited by police after Pisodora Carter phoned in a complaint about a juve nile peeking through her window, accord ing to the report. Reese was at her sisters residence on Bascom Norris during the incident when police asked her where her child was, the report said. She replied that the child, whose age and gender were not disclosed, is outside playing, and proceeded to ask police is that a crime, repeatedly, the report said. Officer J. Anthony said in his report that the child being close to a major road with traf fic and in a neighbors yard was probable cause to arrest Reese for child neglect. When asked the explain her personal information during booking, she refused to give it and told police to look it up, according to the report. Reese was detained in Columbia County Detention Facility on $6,000 bond and faces charges of neglecting a child with out harm and resisting an officer without violence. By TONY BRITT email@example.com A Thursday night fire displaced six Columbia County residents when the blaze ravaged their Dustin Terrace home. Columbia County Fire Chief David Boozer said firefighters spent more than five hours at the scene. Firefighters were dis patched to the call at 8:47 p.m. and arrived at 8:53 p.m. The last units did not leave until 2:14 a.m. Friday. The fire occurred at 178 SE Dustin Terrace and dis placed two adults, three children and another fam ily member living in the single story brick house. No one was at home at the time of the fire, Boozer said, noting no one was injured in the blaze. Boozer said the fire mar shal came to the site, did an evaluation and it was deter mined that it was a cook ing fire where someone left food on the stove unat tended. It started in the kitchen area, Boozer said, noting it was considered as an acci dental fire. Boozer said the wife took the children shopping and when the husband came home he was with a family friend and he prepared and started cooking porkchops for supper. His wife called and said she was having car troubles and the hus band asked their friend for a lift to the store and they left, leaving the food on the stove unattended. When you look at the extent of the fire, it was a single story, residential structure, and the fire had gotten into the attic, Boozer said. The home had been mod ified and it originally had a shingled roof, but during a remodel of the roof, a metal roof had been laid over the original shingled roof. Thats what we were dealing with last (Thursday) night, Boozer said. Thats where our challenge was at. Fire had gotten up into the attic and it ran. When fires get up into the attic they are a challenge. Boozer said another ele ment to battling the flames was the weather with thun derstorms and high winds. Wed get to a certain part and we almost had the fire knocked down and the atmo sphere starts changing where were dealing with rain a little bit and the winds come up and it makes it a little bit more of a challenge to us, he said. Thankfully we didnt get the torrential downpours that some of the other areas of the county got, but the weather did create somewhat of a chal lenge for us. The Columbia County Fire Department utilized its mobile air trailer during the blaze to fill firefighter air tanks because the firefight ers were at the scene for an extended period of time. When we pulled up, it wasnt just a small amount of fire, we had a large amount of fire, the entire house was involved, Boozer said. When you live in a resi dential neighborhood and you have folks around to see things, but for this fire to get to that extent, it had burned for a while. The Columbia County Fire Department respond ed to the blaze with two engines, two tankers and three administrative com mand staff members, total ing 15 firefighters. The Lake City Fire Department responded to the scene with one truck and two fire fighters. The house was a total loss, Boozer said, noting the American Red was in contact with the family. 7A Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 8, 2013 7A Pork chop was cause of house fire TONY BRITT/ Lake City Reporter A Columbia County home was destroyed by fire Thursday night after one of the occupants left dinner cooking on the stove unattended, CCFD officials said. By STEVEN RICHMOND firstname.lastname@example.org Members of the Lake City Police, Citizens Academy and Friends of the Library discussed the LCPDs recent suc cess and challenges with Chief Argatha Gilmore over biscuits and gravy Saturday morning. About 50 people sipped on orange juice and munched on breakfast sausage as Gilmore and other members of the LCPD gave up-to-date information about public safety in the city. Police also briefed citi zens on the emergence and properties of a drug new to Lake City: MDMA, or Ecstacy, and its often impure derivative Molly. Police say these drugs are used in rave clubs in larger urban settings, but also in back yards and private residences around Lake City. Local citizen Katie Reed spoke about her experience doing a ride-along with LCPD, as well, saying it was an interest ing experience to see cops respond to a fight-in-progress and use K-9 officers for drug searches. Gilmore said she wished more citizens would take up the ride-along offer and see what our officers go through every day for an often thankless job. An audience member cried oh no! after Gilmore discussed the possibility of LCPD acquiring red light cameras in the near future. Thats exactly the kind of response I expected from Lake City, Gilmore said with a smile. Citizens were also reminded that LCPD could begin issuing citations for texting and driving starting Oct. 1, but that police would need some time to figure out how to enforce the policy fairly. I have a wonderful team and am so proud of this police department, Gilmore said. But we cant work out all our prob lems by ourselves. If you see something, say something. Gilmore Breakfast with the Chief draws a crowd of 50 skatepark inside Hatch Park, next to US Highway 27. Construction will be divided into three areas: a street plaza, a banked course and the combi pool. The street plaza consists of banks, rails and stairs. Everything a skater would normally encounter in a commu nity-style plaza or street setting. However, the park gets the children away from the streets and into the safe confines of a skate park, Procko said. The final stage of the project replicates Hawks childhood skate haunt, The Del Mar Skate Ranch. The combi pool combines two pools into one skateboarding obstacle. The [parks] design is amazing, so these phases can stand alone, he said. Its not a cookie-cutter park. We designed this literally from scratch. As an old school skater, Procko said hes been skating since the 1970s. Parks can be designed to flow naturally, or they can be disconnected, he said. Procko worked with the parks contractor, Tony Misiano of Misiano Skate Parks in South Florida, to create the parks design. After finishing a park out west, Misianos schedule is wide open. Procko hopes the community can organize the $5,000 soon, so Misiano can begin work as soon as possible. Though the community hasnt raised much to match the grant, Procko said hes excited to be this close to a skatepark that will benefit Branford and skaters from all over Florida. The park will be free to the public. So far, the Town of Branford contributed $20,000 in addition to the fill dirt. Custom Pine Straw, based in Bell, donated $1,000 toward the project. Any businesses that contribute with be displayed on a sign at the park, Procko said. While the commu nity needs monetary donations to match Hawks grant, it is also accepting in-kind donations such as the concrete needed to build the obstacles. Donations can be dropped off at the Town of Branfords Town Hall or mailed to the city at P.O. Box 577, Branford, Fla., 32008.

By TIM KIRBY firstname.lastname@example.org FORT WHITE Fort White Highs football team was playing its first game, but it was Newberry High, with a game under its belt, that looked more nervous. The Indians rode a strong ground game and a feast of turnovers to a 36-18 win at Arrowhead Stadium on Friday. Fort Whites Tavaris Williams rolled up 212 yards on 25 carries, includ ing an 84-yard touchdown run on the first play of the second half to squelch any comeback thoughts by the Panthers. Fort Whites turnover spree started on the open ing kickoff, which followed a 22-minute late start because of the weather (there would also be a lightning delay at 4:01 of the first quarter). Cameron White recov ered the bobbled sky-kick to set the Indians up at the Newberry 35. Williams crossed the goal line twice on the drive, but both were called back by penalties and the Indians settled for a 32-yard field goal from Melton Sanders. Blair Chapman soon recovered a fumble at the Fort White 25 and the Indians went the distance in nine running plays. Kellen Snider scored from the 1. Newberry fumbled on the next drive and E.J. Garrison scooped up the ball and Fort White beats Newberry 36-18 in season-opener. INDIANS continued on 3B UF-Miami goes down to the wire By TIM REYNOLDS Associated Press MIAMI GARDENS Stephen Morris threw two first-quarter touchdown passes, and Miami took advantage of Florida giving the ball away on four red-zone opportunities on the way to knocking off the 12thranked Gators 21-16 on Saturday. Duke Johnson added a two-yard touchdown run with 3:29 left to make it 21-9 Miami (2-0). The Hurricanes have won four straight games for the first time since 2008 and will almost certainly return to the AP Top 25 on Sunday for the first time since 2010. Jeff Driskel threw for a career-best 291 yards and had a 21-yard touchdown pass to Solomon Patton with 2:08 left for the Gators (1-1). The difference for the Hurricanes were mis takes by Florida who lost three fumbles, had two passes intercepted and were stopped once on downs. Driskel also ran for a touchdown. But Driskels big day was marred by mistakes as he also turned the ball over twice in the fourth quarter. Hurricanes knock off Florida 21-16 in rivalry game. Dawgs snap losing streak Associated Press ATHENS, Ga. Aaron Murray threw for 309 yards and four touch downs, Georgias belea guered defense finally came up with a stop, and the 11th-ranked Bulldogs defeated No. 6 South Carolina 41-30 on Saturday for an early edge in the Southeastern Conference East. South Carolina had won the last three games in the series. Coming off a 38-35 loss at Clemson, Georgia could not afford another defeat if it wanted to remain a serious contender for a national title. Murray took care of that, turning in one of the best games of his career and shaking off his repu tation as a quarterback who couldnt win the big game. The fifth-year senior capped his stellar day for the Bulldogs (1-1, 1-0 SEC) with an 85-yard touchdown pass to Justin Scott-Wesley with 13 minutes remaining. The defense made sure it stood up, stuffing Mike Davis on fourth-and-goal from inside the 1. Davis led the Gamecocks (1-1, 0-1) with 149 yards rushing on 16 carries.

N ew Hamilton County head coach Blair Armstrong is the son of Bill Armstrong, who was head coach at Columbia High in 1949-50. After two successful years at CHS 7-3-1 and Columbias first bowl game in 1949 and 7-2 in 1950 Bill Armstrong left to coach in Tallahassee. Following two seasons with four wins, locals were so happy they bought him a Buick. Blair Armstrong wasnt yet a member of the family in Lake City, but was born in Monticello and graduated from Jefferson County High. Bill Armstrong met his wife, Bette Parr, in Lake City where she also was a teacher. Mrs. Armstrong, now 85, still lives in Monticello and she one of the reasons her son returned to Florida. Blair Armstrongs first coaching job was at his alma mater and he took those Tigers to the state championship game in 1982. Jefferson County and Clewiston played to a 13-13 tie and were crowned co-champions. Armstrong also was a head coach at Pensacola Washington and made the playoffs in 1998 with Quincy Munroe. He followed a friend to Grayson High in Georgia and began a 13-year run through the Peach State. Armstrong was head coach at Johnson High (Gainesville), Peachtree Ridge (Suwannee), Banks County (Homer) and North Forsyth (Cumming). And get this. At Peachtree, Armstrongs team made the 2006-07 state championship game and tied Roswell High. The teams shared the championship. Both Florida and Georgia now have the tiebreaker rules in place. As you might imagine, Armstrong is not a fan. Im old school I guess, but if two teams at the end of regulation have not picked out a winner you get a tie, Armstrong said. It should be like boxing. In a tiebreaker if you have a good kicker, you win. Im probably the only coach in the nation who has two ties in championship games. Q The Florida Times Union recently included the history of players picked for its Super 11. Raines led the way with 31 selections, followed by Bolles and First Coast with 24 and Columbia tied Ribault with 19. It was impressive for a non-Duval County school. The CHS honorees were Tyrone Watson (1980), Clint Pollitt (1982), Scott Adams, Jeff Buiey and Mark Dace (1983), John Underwood (1984), Maurice Jordan (1985), Tony Camiel (1989), Shayne Edge (1990), Demetric Jackson (1991), Reinard Wilson (1992), Kendyll Pope (1998), Tre Orr (1999), Jerome Carter and David Dunham (2000), Eric Thomas (2002), George Timmons (2003), Timmy Jernigan (2010) and Laremy Tunsil (2012).

INDIANS: Travel to Bradford next Continued From Page 1BHamiltons Armstrong kind of got started in Lake City advanced it 40 yards. He then fumbled the ball and Cameron White ran it the final 12 yards for a touch-down. After Sanders PAT Fort White led 16-0 when a lightning bolt sent them back to the locker rooms. After the delay, Newberry continued a 12-play, 63-yard scoring drive. Carlton Franklin made a leaping catch of Alex Wilkens pass and powered his way into the end zone to complete the 21-yard touchdown play. Williams returned the kickoff 30 yards and Fort White drove inside the Panthers 10 before giving it up on downs. The defense forced a punt and Joe Chatman busted through to block the kick and then recovered it at the 2. Williams got the call on the chippy TD and Sanders kicked the Indians to a 23-6 lead that lasted until the half. After Williams made his run to start the third quar-ter, it was just a matter of seeing if the game would get over by midnight. Chapman scored on a two-yard run for the Indians at 8:13 of the fourth quar-ter. Newborn got touchdown runs from Jimmy McCoy and Franklin in the second half. We got it in and we needed it, Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson said. We got some of that rust off you usually get off in the first game. We did some pretty good things, but we have got to finish those drives. Quarterback Andrew Baker only had two comple-tions, but more than made up for it on defense with two interceptions. Elijah Bryant also had an interception. Andrew was pressing a little bit, Jackson said. He was trying to find guys and not taking what they were giving him. On some plays the receivers were not run-ning hard. Fort White travels to Bradford High this Friday for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff.

Marshall out 4-6 weeks with injury JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High safety Trey Marshall is wheeled out to an ambulance after being injured during a play against Lincoln High on Thursday. By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comTALLAHASSEE Even the biggest wins can some-times come with a loss and thats what happened to Columbia High in a 28-14 win against Lincoln High in Tallahassee on Thursday. The Tigers highest-rated recruit, Trey Marshall, went down with what appeared to be an internal injury. Marshall was rushed to the hospital where he under-went surgery for what is now known to be a stomach injury. He had a ruptured stomach, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said. It wasnt internal bleeding. He had an hour and a half proce-dure. In four to six weeks, hes back to 100 percent. Hell be back to playing football. Hes going to be able to finish out his senior year. While the news is good for Marshall, and the coach is thankful for his health above all, the Tigers must now find a way to replace their defensive leader over a good chunk of the sea-son. Allen said the loss would surely be one that the Tigers would feel. Its huge, monumental, Allen said. Hes a senior leader in the classroom on and off the field. Weve been together. With him returning, its big momen-tum-wise and morale-wise. We go forward and hes one of our soldiers returning to battle. It will be right on time for when were getting ready to make a push. Filling in for Marshall will be safety Bryan Williams. Williams was a starting linebacker for the Tigers this season, but he had experience playing in the secondary last year. Allen expects Williams to step up to the plate. He had five reps at free safety this season and with him stepping in with a huge game that has state recog-nition and national recog-nition, it was the biggest game of his career and he was solid, Allen said. Ben (Kuykendall) being able to adapt (to switching safety positions) at the half in a hostile environment and we havent got every call (from the refs) we think we should have got. We had to come out and do a good job, and those kids do a good job of it. Not only were Bryan Williams and Ben Kuykendall moving positions, but Will Bowen stepping up huge backing up Williams at stud (line-backer) as well. Not only did Bowen move into a starting position, but with Tyrone Sands again down with a knee injury Austin Harper moved into a starting role. Allen said the next four to six weeks will be big for each players development. There will be a big role for them, because we wont have those guys for four to six weeks, Allen said. Theyll be starters going forward. Theyll have to mature fast. As a coach, weve been talking about three kids on the offensive line that havent started a game. We have a free safety that hasnt started and kids on the defensive line not starting. Its a bunch of guys with their first shot under the lights. With each game rep, theyre only going to get better. Theyll get those reps. Theyre only going to improve. Its not theyre bad, just the guy in front of them was better. Their potential has the ability to be unleashed. We dont train Trey one way and everyone else different. Theyre all battle-ready when its time to go on Friday night. Its different under the lights. It counts. Austin Harper is going to be very good. Hes a first year guy that has missed his freshman and sophomore year. He missed the summer for two years and now he has it for a year. Hes buying in and could be real good. Allen didnt want to brag about himself as a coach, but he did say it felt good to see other players step in and not miss a beat against one of the states top teams. Just being modest, youre sure you are doing things right, because if you werent then you would see a huge drop-off when those guys have to step in, Allen said. When you are doing things right, it vali-dates that. Im not saying we have all the answers, but with each week were try-ing to get better as coaches. Thats one thing I can say about this entire group as coaches. Whether its going into colleges and trying to be sponges so we can go in and give the kids the best. Tigers junior varsity beats Baker County, second game suspendedBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia Highs junior varsity program is still 1-0 after Wednesdays game against Madison County High was suspended early in the third quarter with the Tigers leading 2-0. Columbia scored late in the first half after a bad snap had the ball end up in the end zone for a safety. Im not calling it a win, but Im not calling it a loss, junior varsity head coach John Brown said. It was a tough battle and the game was suspended after halftime. We had the ball down inside the 10-yard line twice and penalties backed us up both times. Columbias junior varsity entered the game with a 1-0 record after defeating Baker County High 42-7 in its opener on Aug. 29 in Macclenny. Daylon Sheppard scored touchdowns from 25 and 15 yards in the con-test and Earl Frames had touchdown runs of 20 and 10 yards. Davin Schuck scored the Tigers other touchdown on a quarter-back sneak. The junior varsity also had help from the defense with a fumble returned for a touchdown by Mariaun Dallas. The kids are working hard, Brown said. They know their assignments. We should have been up 23-0 at halftime against Madision, but a couple of illegal procedure calls cost us to move backward. That didnt happen in the first game. Those are some of the things we need to work on in our next game. It was a lack of focus. When you hear Madison, you know its a good program, but weve had success against them the last three years. Columbias junior varsity travels to Buchholz High at 7 p.m. on Thursday. We dont know what to expect, but I expect our kids to play hard, Brown said.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comFootball season, for colleges and high schools too in some cases, provides a financial boost to the Columbia County hotel and restaurant industry. When you look at the [University of Florida] Gator games, some of the games dont have a lot of affect on us, but any time you got Tennessee, Arkansas, and Florida State University to a lesser degree, but anytime youve got an SEC rivalry it has a significant impact on us, said Harvey Campbell, Columbia County Tourist Development Council director. Campbell said some of the advantages for local hotels in drawing college football fans is that Columbia County hotels dont typically have a three-day minimum stay requirement and hotel rates in Gainesville are boosted significantly during football season. Campbell said with Columbia County there is a 45-minute head start in hitting the road and traveling home. Campbell said there is rarely any financial gain from high school football teams during the regular season, but some years with high school playoffs opposing teams may use local hotels because there are teams that may come from as far away as Pensacola. The run-of-the-mill games are like a Gainesville High or Tallahassee Lincoln game, he said. Those folks come over that evening or afternoon late and they typically return back home. Campbell said there are no specific studies to track the financial impact of football season on the local hotel industry, but TDC just checks in with local hotels. Campbell said impact of football season was a little more pronounced, compared to now, when the Holiday Inn/Quality Inn existed. They typically hosted the teams and had the training table type menus, which is a specialty thing, he said. Probably the biggest impact right now for us is occasionally we dont get the teams, but we get the (college) bands. The financial boost brought on by different college fans or bands normally lasts a few days. Campbell said the financial boost typically starts around September and lasts until November. He said he did not have a specific dollar amount representing the annual financial boost. Lake City Reporter Week of September 8-14, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section C Columbia, Inc.

By BRIDGET MURPHY Associated Press BOSTON Some stu dents toted lunchboxes to the first day of school in Boston this week, but district administrators are expecting that could become a more unusu al sight as parents learn about a federal program that is now providing all public school students in the city with free breakfast and lunch. The nations oldest school system has joined a program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture that has spread to 10 states and the District of Columbia that offers stu dents two free meals every school day, whether or not their families can afford them. Its one less weight and one less burden for par ents, said Joshua Rivera, whose son is a secondgrader at the Maurice J. Tobin School in Bostons Roxbury section. And, officials say, serv ing more kids actually saves them money. Known as Community Eligibility Option, the pro gram is part of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 that authorized $4.5 billion in new program funding. For schools to qualify, federal officials said, more than 40 percent of stu dents have to be getting food stamps or aid through certain other federal assis tance programs. Besides easing hunger, school officials said, the program helps erase a stig ma that plagued some stu dents from poor families. Boston joins schools in Michigan, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., and elsewhere in a program that will be available across the country starting in the 2014-2015 school year. Efrain Toledano, princi pal of the Tobin School, said he expects the pro gram will cut down on potential disruptions at the K-8 school by easing hun ger pangs that could be linked to classroom misbe havior. We know that calm stomachs means calm stu dents who are ready to learn in classrooms, he said Wednesday. The program eliminates bureaucratic costs and expenses associated with handling cafeteria cash, officials said. Jim Weill, president of the nonprofit Food Research and Action Center, noted the program saves schools money because its less expensive to feed more stu dents than to do paperwork for children who qualify for free or reduced price meals. In Boston, officials wont have to hire couriers to drop off and pick up appli cations at the citys 127 schools, Peck said. They also may be able to cancel armored-car pickups of caf eteria money. An Atlanta Public Schools spokeswoman said students at 58 of the citys 100 public schools started getting free breakfast and lunch this year under the program. A spokeswoman for District of Columbia Public Schools said 76 out of 111 district schools are part of the program, which started there in the last school year. Detroit Public Schools joined the federal program during the 2011-12 school year, and a spokeswoman said 52,000 breakfasts and 60,000 lunches were served daily to students in the last school year. In western Michigan, an administrator with Grand Rapids Public Schools said the district has been serv ing free breakfast and lunch for its 17,000 students since the 2012-2013 school year started. Paul Baumgartner, nutri tion service director, said that breakfast counts sky rocketed after the program began and that it saves fam ilies the hassle of filling out applications. The rationale is weve got these communities that have demonstrated severe need, he said. Why dont we see if we can reduce some of these barriers? Associated Press writers Rodrique Ngowi in Boston and Jeff Karoub in Detroit contributed to this report. 2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 8-14, 2013 2CBIZ/MOTLEY Collectively the financial impact is in the millions of dollars, he said. Its not that for any one game, but over the course of the season. Campbell said on-field performance also has an impact on the amount of fans attending the games. If a team is having a good year, everybody is on the bandwagon, he said. If they are not, then you get a drop-off. With the addition of Missouri and Texas A&M [to the South Eastern Conference], we think thats going to have some benefits for us. Those two schools, along with Auburn, Alabama, Tennessee, and we get a little bit of spin-off from the Florida/Georgia game, but not a lot. Campbell said the financial benefits of football season are often experienced at a communitywide level. Our focal point is hotels, but these people are eating in our restaurants, theyre buying gasoline and theyre going to the Walmarts of the world, so it benefits every body, Campbell said.

Why hope to buy shares of a company you admire at $30 and then $40 after it rises, when youd do better buying at $30 and $20? If you plan to buy milk for the next 25 years, 10 years of falling milk prices would be welcome, right? (Unless you run a dairy.) A smart wealth-building strategy is to invest money methodically, understanding that over the long run, the patient investor has usually been rewarded. Those trying to get rich quick in stocks are often just gambling. The media present a momentary drop in the stock market as unambiguously bad, and the possibility of a longer drop as reason to panic. The only ones who should panic are those who need to sell their holdings soon. Thats why its best to hold stocks only with money you can leave in the market for five, or even 10, years. If youre investing over the decades ahead, dont let a depressed market depress you. It can be full of profit-making opportunities for the savvy and patient investor. Wiring Profits Move over, paper checks and bank wires. A new way to send money from place to place is catching on in a big way. Meet the online money transfer, which will revolutionize the industry of sending cash from point to point. One of the best ways to invest in this new development is via Western Union (NYSE: WU), which offers a convenient, inexpensive way to send cash to any country you please. Once, Western Union was the only game in town. But it got too comfortable in its market-leading position and lost exclusive contracts with agents in Mexico while failing to cut prices to thwart competitors elsewhere around the world. Industry rivals capitalized on that weakness. It hasnt been the end of Western Union, though. Remember, this company survived the death of the telegraph, so disruptive technology is nothing new. Its already growing its online business at a 30-percentplus annual clip. Western Union still has major competitive advantages. Its network includes 500,000 agents, and it offers some services others dont, such as two-way money transfers. Its profitability is unmatched, as it turns $0.17 of every dollar in revenue into pure free cash flow (an average of $1 billion in each of the last five years). With its P/E ratio recently near 11, Western Union deserves a higher valuation. (The Motley Fools newsletters have recommended Western Union.) The M ot l ey Foo l To Educate, Amuse & Enrich Young and Bilked Twenty years ago, my wife and I were newlyweds and did not have a lot of cash. I talked her into investing $3,000 into one of her friends investment funds. We liked him and his wife and trusted him. He eventually bilked us for the total amount after buying a private airplane (in which we received a short ride for our $3,000 investment) and a house in a warm climate, along with many other luxuries. He took his mothers only money for retirement and many other friends money, too. His monthly reports showed great returns that turned out to be false. We did receive one check for $300. Not close to what we gave away. G.S., Mankato, Minn. The Fool Responds: Ouch. There are indeed some charlatans out there, such as Bernie Madoff, who also sent his clients falsified reports. One red flag to help you spot such fraudsters is consistent high returns. You can earn high returns in the stock market, but not consistently.

Q How can it be that via watching CNBC, reading financial magazines and checking out Motley Fool opinions on stocks, I often see one source recommending buying a stock and another recommending selling it? J.R., Sacramento, Calif. A Its rarely certain that a given stock will rise or fall. Every investor or analyst has his or her own opinion, and sometimes, inevitably, theyre wrong. They can have different focuses, too. Some might seek very undervalued stocks, while others will accept a smaller margin of safety in exchange for greater possible growth. Read the arguments, do your own research and make up your own mind. *** Q Whats a high-yield stock? B.S., online A Its one that pays out a relatively hefty dividend, expressed as the dividend yield. Dividend yield is simply the current annual dividend amount divided by the stocks current price. If McDonald Farms (ticker: EIEIO) pays $1 per year (typically, it would be $0.25 per quarter) and trades for $25 per share, its yield is 4 percent (1 divided by 25 is 0.04). Some solid companies, such as Visa, sport low dividend yields. Others, such as Google, pay no dividend at all. Thats not necessarily bad; it just suggests that these companies have better things to do with their money, such as reinvesting it to grow their business. Instead of a dividend, they might deliver relatively rapid stock price appreciation, though thats never guaranteed. Dividends arent guaranteed, either, but with established, growing companies, theyre darn reliable and provide welcome income.

Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us The Beauty of Bear Markets The stock market posted a string of losing days in mid-August, leading some to fear a bear market. Thats premature, but we should all expect occasional bear markets. Indeed, many of us should actually be hoping for them. That may sound illogical, but if youre plunking money into the stock market over the next decade or three, a flat or falling market is a good thing for now. Superinvestor Warren Buffett once explained: If you expect to be a net saver during the next five years, should you hope for a higher or lower stock market during that period? Many investors get this one wrong. Only those who will be sellers of equities in the near future should be happy at seeing stocks rise. Prospective purchasers should much prefer sinking prices.

LIFE Sunday, September 8, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D Story ideas?ContactRobert BridgesEditor754firstname.lastname@example.org Lake City Reporter1DLIFE A dignified end for Old Glory By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.com The American flag stands proud as a symbol of freedom, but as it ages patriots and local government agencies realize there is currently no standard place to conveniently dispose of Old Glory. Boy Scout Colby Bedenbaugh hopes to change that. For his Eagle Scout project, 17-year-old Colby built boxes to store worn, tattered American flags until they can be properly disposed of in a Flag Burning Ceremony. The boxes positioned at the local American Legion Post 57, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Columbia County Tax Collectors Office also provide a convenient place for Lake City residents to drop off their weathered Star-Spangled Banner. Colby crafted white, wooden boxes, and labeled them: Dignified Depository for worn, tattered, or weathered American Flags. Its just something unique, Colby said. I havent seen any drop boxes for worn American flags anywhere around here. Currently, Colby ranks as a Life Scout in his Life Oak Boy Scout Troop 597, but the project should promote him to Eagle Scout. The only qualification for an Eagle Scout project is that the end-goal benefits the community. American Legion Post 57 Commander Art Lowes said his post receives 200 to 300 worn flags per year. The flags are stored in plastic bags until a Flag Burning Ceremony, which happens twice a year on Veterans Day and Memorial Day. The ceremony includes a presentation of the flags, acknowledgment that they are ready for disposal and the subsequent burning. This is quite a project, Lowes said. Its definitely a community need because Eagle Scout project providesa convenient way to disposeof worn, tattered flags. FLAG continued on 2DPhotos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterGeorge Duren, a post service officer with the American L egion Post 57 in Lake City, helps Life Scout Colby Bedenbaugh, 17, of Jasper, go through discard ed American flags while at the American Legion on Wednesday. Duren watches as Bedenbaugh gingerly places the Ameri can flags into the depository bin. Its satisfying to know what I am doing to help out the comm unity, Bedenbaugh said. I just havent seen (anything like this around). Hopefully, peop le will see this and know where to get rid of their worn American flags.
By SHIRLEY SALEMY MEYER Associated Press T he letter asking for a dog was written in the curvy, care ful handwrit ing of a grammar-school girl wanting to make an impression. Crumpled drafts were on the floor of her room, explorations of different arguments to press her case. In the end, my daughter used them all. And she ended the letter with emotion, signing it with love and hope. Hope? How can a moth er reject hope? Still, its been 30 years since Ive had a dog, our yard isnt fenced and I thought my potty-training days were over. How do you know if you are ready for dog owner ship? Experts say you need to examine your lifestyle, living arrangements and finances. Then, you need to find the right match. There is a home for every dog, but every home is not right for every dog, said Kim Saunders, vice president of operations and communications for St. Huberts of Madison, N.J., which has two animal shelters and a dog training center. When deciding whether to get a dog, everyone in the household should be comfortable with the idea, experts say. Once the entire family is on board, its important to decide who the primary care giver will be the person responsible for feeding, walking, training, exercis ing and enriching the dog. Potential dog owners also should figure out whether they have enough time to care for a dog. Even if long workdays are typical, however, dog owners can arrange with a neighbor or dog walker to help out. Lots of busy people have pets, said Dr. Brian Collins, who super vises veterinary students appointments and surger ies at Cornell Universitys College of Veterinary Medicine. Its a matter of whether you are going to make the changes neces sary to make it a priority. The Schutte family of Cheyenne, Wyo., brought home Toby, a Canaan puppy, in early January. Lance Schutte and his wife have demanding jobs, and after work they are active with their childrens extra curricular activities. They love to play with Toby, but they dont have a lot of time for long walks. All the traits of the Canaan breed seemed to fit well into our family life style, said Schutte, stew ardship coordinator for the Wyoming Stock Growers Land Trust. Canaans are generally loyal and familyoriented, according to the American Kennel Club, require regular exercise and are easy to train. The Schuttes hope that feeding and housetraining Toby will teach their two preteens responsibility. As a general rule, pup pies and adolescent dogs require more time than adult dogs, said Gail Buchwald, senior vice president of the ASPCAs Adoption Center in New York City. Personality and energy level should be considered for a successful dog-family match, she said. A high-energy dog wont be an issue for a physically active family, experts say. But if your family fits into the couch potato mold and doesnt have much more to give at the end of the day, a low-energy dog may be a better fit. Do some research before deciding on a breed or mix of breeds, said Dr. Meghan Herron, assistant professor of vet erinary clinical sciences and head of the behavioral medicine clinic at Ohio State University. Some dogs have been bred over generations for specific jobs, such as herding and retrieving. Behavioral problems such as chewing things and barking at their owner can result when dog owners dont compensate for those jobs with physi cal exercise or stimulate dogs intelligence with games. The cuteness of pup pies is hard to resist. But with that charm comes a big time commitment for housetraining, socializa tion and playing. Herron recommends puppy class es, where these young dogs are exposed to things they will see as adults things that move, things that make noise, obstacles and more so they wont be afraid of them later. A novelty to an animal is potentially dangerous, she said. If we show it to them as a puppy, its not a novelty. Joel Fotinos and Alan Stephenson of Maplewood, N.J., plan to take their year-old dog, Martin, to obedience school. Their first year with Martin, believed to be a mix of German shepherd and golden retriever, was a demanding one, but we are beginning to see the fruits of the work, Fotinos said. You get cats, you bring them home and youre done, said Fotinos, a book publisher. I did not know the amount of care and attention that goes into dogs. Stephenson, stay-athome father to their 9year-old son, said he had puppy amnesia. You for get what it is like, he said. Its like having an infant. Sigrid McMahon of Whitehouse Station, N.J., thought a puppy might be too much for her 8-yearold Rottweiler, Sofie, who needed companionship. Plus, she and her husband wanted to make a differ ence in an older dogs life. So in December, they adopted Britt, a mixed breed about 10 years old who has fit into the house hold well. But McMahon, who works at a private school, is aware of the additional responsibilities that come with an older dog and hopes any medi cal issues are minor. Should the size of your living space be a concern? Buchwald of the ASPCA said no. Dogs need exer cise and enrichment, not big houses. A fenced-in yard also isnt necessary, according to Saunders of St. Huberts, who wrote The Adopted Dog Bible for Petfinder.com. Some communities, however, have laws about how many pets you can have in your home, and landlords may have restric tions. Moreover, potential dog-owners should check their homeowners insur ance to see whether cover age allows a dog or a par ticular breed of dog. The cost of owning a dog, from food to medi cal care, can add up. The ASPCA estimates the minimal cost of humane care in a dogs first year to be $1,314 for a small dog, $1,843 for a large dog. As for my daughters desire for a dog, Im not quite ready. But her request has brought back wonderful childhood memories of our beloved golden retriever, who roamed the wooded area of our neighborhood and returned home when she heard us whistle. If only dog care were still that easy. Online: The American Kennel Club has a wealth of infor mation about responsible dog ownership on its web site: http://www.akc.org/ puppies/responsible_dog_ ownership/index.cfm For more information about the cost of caring for a dog, go to the ASPCAs website: http://www. aspca.org/adoption/petcare-costs.aspx 2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2013 Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 2DLIFE anyone who has a flag at their house can drop it in this box. According to Colby, the hardest part of his project was finding a business that would allow him to place the boxes out front. Even though he lives in Jasper, he traveled to Lake City to ask government agencies in the area. No one in Live Oak wanted the box out front, he said. Several Lake City businesses donated supplies and time to help Colby complete the proj ect, including Lake City Industries, Plumb Level Construction, Action Signs and Graphics, and Alwood Cabinets. To complete the project, Colby needed four sheets of plywood, wood glue, a nail gun, paint, paint brushes, hinges, handles, baseboard, sandpaper, a sander and more. Alwood Cabinets allowed him to use the company shop, as well as help build the boxes. Action Signs and Graphics added the decals to the boxes free of charge. It will be satisfying to know that I actu ally helped the community and people have a place to take their flags, Colby said. Ive been to peoples houses and seen a lot of ripped, worn American flags. They just sit there because no one knows what to do with them. Many people are hesitant to enter the American Legion Post if they arent mem bers, Lowes said, but the boxes provide people a more convenient location. Columbia County Tax Collector Ronnie Brannon said Colby has already placed his box in the lobby, right next to a Girl Scout project. Children should be encouraged, especially Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, Brannon said. You may have a flag at home. You dont want to throw it away, but you may need to replace it. I think its good [Colby] makes the repository available for the public. As far as Im con cerned, it can stay here until the cows come home.

By DEAN FOSDICKAssociated PressSmart irrigation is becoming a hot landscap-ing specialty as groundwa-ter aquifers are increasing-ly sucked dry. Thirsty lawns, energy production, and expand-ing wet industries like hydraulic fracture mining and farm irrigation are vying for water resources, leading to tougher water-ing restrictions and higher prices. The EPA is moving from encouragement to enforcement on the munic-ipal, commercial level, said Jeff Gibson, landscape business manager for Ball Horticultural Co. in West Chicago, Ill. Many new municipal ordinances in the country dictate the types of heads (low pressure, low volume sprinklers, typical-ly) that may be used with new installations. Numerous states and some municipalities also are starting to offer tax incentives for installing low-water-use irrigation systems, Gibson said. Water shortages already impact every continent, according to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs. Around 1.2 billion people, or almost one-fifth of the worlds population, live in areas of physical scarcity, and 500 million people are approaching this situation. Depleted water supplies are both a natural and human-made phenom-enon, the agency says. There is enough fresh-water on the planet for six billion people but it is distributed unevenly and too much of it is wasted, polluted or unsustainably managed. Planet, the national landscape industry associa-tion, lists five strategies for smarter watering: Making your soil healthier. Break up and amend the soil 12 to 18 inches deep so plant roots can penetrate deeper. The most important thing in landscaping is soil prepara-tion and choosing plants suited to the micro-climate where theyre going, said Kurt Bland, a Planet spokesman and president of Bland Landscaping Co. in Apex, N.C. Grouping plants with similar water needs togeth-er. Doing so will create less stress on the plants, which will help keep them disease-free under low water conditions, the trade association says. Choosing the right grasses for lawns. Turf grass is incredibly resil-ient and genetically geared to go dormant in drought conditions, a Planet handout says. Ask a professional for what drought tolerant species will do well in your lawn based on sun exposure and soil type. Creating an irrigation plan that includes reclaimed water and low-consumption drip systems. Drip irriga-tion, while saving water, can increase vegetable yields and plant growth, said Robert Kourik, author of Drip Irrigation for Every Landscape and All Climates (Metamorphic Press, 2009.) The improp-er use of irrigation creates a too-wet and too-dry cycle. This adds more stress to the roots and less-than-ideal growth. Drip irrigation promotes the best growth possible. Mulching, which retains moisture, smothers weeds and adds nutrients to the soil. Water rates as they increase are getting peo-ples attention, Bland said. Ordinances requir-ing monitors limiting how much water can be used also seem to be working. By CEDAR BURNETTAssociated PressSEATTLE Its hard to miss the enormous 20-foot-wide American flag on the side of Richard Ormbreks home. Comprised of around 180 tiles painted with scenes of Americana against a background of red and white stripes, the flag pops from the orange cedar shingles with traffic-stopping audacity. This is actually the second major art project that Ormbrek has put on the house he shares with brother-in-law Bruce Edenso. The first a tra-ditional Haida Indian totem house design that covered the entire side of the home was painted in 1975 and made the house something of a local landmark. Many people know of one: that neighborhood house thats quirky or dra-matic or a bona fide art project. But few have the inclination or the guts to turn their own home into that house, to view their property as a giant canvas waiting to be explored. We needed to paint our house anyway, says Ormbrek. And while we were mulling over the color, we decided to make our home look like a long-house. Ormbreks late wife Judy, a Tlingit-Haida, picked the totem design, which the Ormbreks projected from atop a car across the street while their friend Steve Priestly painted in the lines. Neighbors gaped as the house was transformed, but only one seemed to mind, fearing it would bring down property values. So far, it seems, the Totem House has neither driven down property values in one of Seattles hottest neighbor-hoods, nor affected the resale value of the home itself. I get offers every week to buy my home, says Ormbrek. Of course Im not planning on selling the house its a very special place. Keith Wong, an agent in San Gabriel, Calif., for the national real-estate broker-age Redfin says a homes price and location are more important than aesthetics in tight markets. We educate our clients to look past cosmetics, says Wong. If a house has good bones, it has lots of potential. Wong recently took clients to see an unusu-al home in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles and says the couple were turned off more by the noise from a nearby freeway than by the homes eclectic design, which included a rainbow of exterior colors and a giant statue of an insect in the front yard. For those considering a creative makeover to their home, remember its a fine line between special and tacky, Wong advises. And consider how long youll be staying there. If youre planning on selling your home anytime soon, its best to stick to cosmetics and keep with the characteristics of the neighborhood architectur-ally, he says. Jay Pennington of New Orleans put a twist on this suggestion when he offered his yard to host a year-long musical art installation. The double lot he purchased in 2007 came with a dilapidated, roughly 250-year-old Creole cottage on the property, which Pennington wanted to use in a creative way befitting the spirit of New Orleans. A DJ, performer and artist manager who also goes by the name Rusty Lazer, Pennington is steeped in the art world through his work as co-director of New Orleans Airlift, a not-for-profit organization that pro-vides opportunities for art-ists. Pennington, along with Brooklyn-based street art-ist Swoon and New Orleans Airlift Co-Director Delaney Martin, came up with the idea of a musical village made from the salvaged remains of the cottage. After obtaining city permits, Martin and art-ist Taylor Lee Shepherd paired artists with builders to create a lot-size shanty-town with nine shacks that wheezed, thrummed and plinked as fully functioning instruments. The neighbors were almost universally sup-portive and took part in the project, from helping to dismantle the cottage to defending Pennington from the one neighbor who viewed the project as trashy and tried to shut it down. Its New Orleans people love music here, says Pennington. He said neigh-bors appreciated that the cottage wasnt torn down and replaced with a new, out-of-character home. The area has a rhythm and spirit to it, and that was something we had to try and preserve, he says. He did draw the line at friends camping in his yard for Mardi Gras, insisting that they build a privacy fence to show respect for the neighbors. The fence was built in a day, wheat-pasted with a design by Swoon, and now a piece of it is part of the archival col-lection at the New Orleans Museum of Art. Performances of The Music Box, as the projec-was called, drew 15,000 vis-itors and a host of perform-ers who played the instru-mental buildings. It ended in May 2011 after four months of staggered per-formances. Most of it was dismantled and the pieces stored to be used in a per-manent musical building known as Dithyrambalina. Pennington still shares his property with the projects art director, Eliza Zeitlin, who lives in the per-manent structure she built for the project along with her menagerie of 30 animals. My house will never be just my house again, says Pennington. But I love that.

DEAR ABBY: My husband is 99 percent bed-bound with primary progressive MS. My oldest son is bipolar (hes off his meds and doing great), and my youngest son has Aspergers. I know ... wow. My husband refuses to even try to understand the boys. When they have behavior problems, he tells them if he could, he would backhand them. Great parenting, huh? But at the same time, the boys and I are expected to have our lives revolve around his disability and stop everything when he needs help. His MS is always top priority. I hate watching him go through his disease, but does that give him a free pass to bully our boys? I realize the boys (especially the younger one) have issues that are difficult to deal with, and Im not giving them a free pass, either, but I feel like Im stuck between a rock and a hard place. If I support my sons, Im a bad wife. If I support my husband, Im a bad mom. And -not to sound selfish -who sup-ports ME? Any words of wisdom, Abby? -STRETCHED THIN IN COLORADO DEAR STRETCHED THIN: Youre carrying an enormous load on your shoulders right now. I wish you wouldnt label yourself as a bad ANYTHING because you are just a mortal woman who is try-ing to cope. Your husband is understandably bitter and frustrated and some-times takes it out on those closest to him -you and the boys. His MS IS top priority because hes inca-pacitated and it HAS to be. Your boys need to understand the importance of not stressing out their father. Im glad your older son is doing well off medica-tion, IF thats OK with his doctor. But its my under-standing that people with a chemical imbalance need to stay on their meds to main-tain their equilibrium. As to your younger son, people with Aspergers may have problems with their social interactions, but they can be taught rules of accept-able behavior. Perhaps its time to work a little harder on that. As to your own needs, believe me, I sympathize. If possible, find someone who can offer a respite from your caregiving responsi-bilities every few weeks. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My sister and I have settled my mothers estate except for one item: Moms cookbooks. In particular, one book that Mom used regularly and in which she modified recipes. My mother was a phenomenal cook, and this book is a real bone of contention for us all. What should I do? -LOST FOR WORDS DEAR LOST FOR WORDS: One person can volunteer to be the fam-ily cooks librarian and if anyone wants to prepare a modified recipe, the librarian could scan it or photocopy it and send it. Or, all of the modified reci-pes could be photocopied at once and distributed to family members who would like to have them. The task shouldnt be onerous because I doubt your mother modified every recipe in the book. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Dont make rash deci-sions or push someone away without taking a closer look at the situation involving someone else. Overreacting will mag-nify a problem that just requires a little tweaking. A good physical workout will help defuse your anger. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Consider your quali-fications and look at job prospects that interest you. It never hurts to send your resume out to ensure that you are marketable. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A timeout to take care of personal needs may not please the people who count on you, but its important that you do something rejuvenating. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Dont blow an incident out of proportion. Back away from anyone try-ing to corner you or pick a fight. Concentrate on self-improvement and the hobbies that interest you. Learn by observing how people from different back-grounds handle similar situations. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Make positive changes at home. Do the work yourself and you will have money to spend on some-thing or someone special. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Keep up with whats going on in your communi-ty or the industry in which you work to avoid being broadsided by someone or something that can influ-ence your position or finan-cial security. A change of heart can lead to a costly expense. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Keep everything sim-ple. Being adaptable will help you slip through any upsets or confrontations you face without too much trouble. Let past experi-ence guide you. Take the day to travel to places that will occupy your mind and ease your stress. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): A secret will be divulged. Protect your reputation and your honor by counteracting any gos-sip that might incriminate you. Use your imagination and concentrate on proj-ects that allow you to be innovative. Handle what-ever you face uniquely and discreetly. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take an active role in your commu-nity and raise your profile. Lobby to enforce rules that will improve your lifestyle. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Strategy will be required if you want to get to the bottom of a problem you have with someone you care about. Taking on too much or overreacting will stand between you and accomplishing what you set out to do. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Dont dismiss an idea you have. Flush out the possibilities and consider how you can turn something you want to pursue into a moneymak-ing endeavor. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Dont overspend on luxury items or fancy products that promise the impossible. Invest in your talent, skills and ideas that can help you get ahead financially. +++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Star of four Spike Lee films 8 Exercised on a track14 Longtime Ed Asner role 18 Birds at a ballpark19 1954 film septet20 White: Fr.21 Away, in a way22 Gustav Holst septet%DULVWDVRIIHULQJ24 Cable alternative25 [typo not fixed]26 Star of a 1981 Broadway revueVXEWLWOHG7KHLady and Her0XVLF $GGRQHVYLHZV29 Style31 Second-incommand: Abbr. 32 41-Across athlete34 How his-and-hers towels are sold *RVVLSZHOOWROG per Elbert Hubbard 37 Comebacks39 Bud40 Hydrocarbon ending41 See 32-Across42 Electrical unit, oldstyle :HEVWHUVVHFRQG"47 Quick punch50 Author Janowitz %XGVSODFH53 Strike turf before the ball, in golf %\HOLQH"56 Olympic venues58 It may extend for many minutes 7KRXJKWIXOH[HUFLVH60 Overseas market7HDVH63 Unspecified degrees65 Comic strip cries67 Waltzed through69 ___ de carne asada70 Burj Khalifa locale72 Joint76 Fashion label ___Picone 78 Prickly sticker79 Letter with a limited amount of space 81 Savvy82 Radar reading84 Steel giant, formerly 85 Chug87 End of an argument6LQJHUDW2EDPDV 2009 inauguration 89 Baseball All-Star who was also afootball ProBowler 90 Edamame source92 Cross-state rival of CIN $UL]RQDVBBB Cienegas NationalConservation Area 94 Hot prospects, say97 Home base for many a mission 99 Like Victorian streets 102 Honorarium1LUYDQDV&RPH DV
