By STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreporter.comBefore County Commissioners approved a tentative $96,855,046 budget for the 2013-14 fiscal year, Sheriff Mark Hunter argued that members of the CCSO were long overdue a pay raise. A group of about 50 deputies, their families and friends, all donning Support our Sheriff buttons, comprised a bulk of the public hear-ing audience Monday evening. My son is a deputy and neither he nor anyone else in the Sheriffs Office has seen a raise in six years, Martha Jo Khachigan said before the meeting. With inflation and insur-ance going up, deputies and their families are losing money every year. At least 40 deputies, some over sergeant, have second jobs. The Sheriffs Office was approved for a tentative $12.4 million budget for 2013-14, up from $11.9 million for 2012-13. As the budget stands, no county employees will receive raises next year. However, Hunter stepped in to argue that his staff deserved more. Good leaders take care of their folks because the folks take care of their leaders, Hunter began. I think were ready to have a step plan. Instead of going back-wards with their pay, we need to make them up to date. According to the sheriff, the average pay for Sheriffs Office staff was $33,000 a year with base pay beginning at $30,000. Hunter said a $33,000 base would help tremendously, but acknowledged there would be compression issues in terms of raising older employees pay as well. He said he had a step plan that would increase salaries every two years, target-ing senior members of his workforce. Staff would be categorized into brackets designed to reward people for staying and to main-tain experienced workers. It takes about five years to train a good deputy, he said. Those are the ones we want to target because they give us the best return, adding that it would not be cost-effective to hire, train and certify new depu-ties if he couldnt retain the older ones. Hunter, the first sheriff in Columbia County history to effectively reduce CCSOs operat-ing budget, according to county officials, said the step plan would require an additional $300,000 in order to phase out. Commissioners praised Hunters dedication to his workers, comparing his tenacity to that of former Sheriff Tom Trammel, but expressed concern over introducing a step plan during a rough economy. Its hard to project budgets, District 2 Commissioner Rusty DePratter said.

Q Associated Press The best way to live is by not knowing what will happen to you at the end of the day. Donald Barthelme, American author and professor Turturro lands unlikely co-star in Allen TORONTO N ot since the forgettable 2000 comedy Picking up the Pieces has Woody Allen starred in a film he didnt direct. But John Turturro managed to coax Allen back into acting for Fading Gigolo with an enticing role: an elderly but novice pimp. And it wouldnt have occurred if Allen and Turturro didnt happen to share a barber. Though Allen and Turturro knew each other somewhat (Turturro had a small part in Allens Hannah and Her Sisters and was nearly cast in two other Allen films), they werent close. I knew he liked my work, Turturro said in a recent interview. But I dont sit next to him at Knick games. Though both are Brooklyn-born New Yorkers who frequent Madison Square Garden, another city insti-tution brought them together. Turturro mentioned a film idea one day while getting a trim at the salon. The barber liked the idea and later told it to Allen, who went for it. It was one of those old-fashioned barbershop things, Turturro said. Fading Gigolo premiered over the weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival. In the film, Turturro plays a New York florist who begins making money on the side (with the help of Allens character) by rendering his services to women. Fading Gigolo is seek-ing distribution in Toronto, with a release most likely sometime next year.Cher, Ed Sheeran among The Voice advisers LOS ANGELES NBC said The Voice is getting four new advisers, with Cher among them.

A trespassing charge has been dis-missed against a Maine man accused of showing up at Taylor Swifts Rhode Island vacation home. Police decided to drop the charge after determining it would be diffi-cult to prove that Joseph Bernatche, 55, of Portland, Maine, was on Swifts property when he handed her security guard a note telling the singer to call him. Westerly police Lt. Phil Williams said it was not clear whether the guard had passed onto public prop-erty when he accepted the note. Bernatche pleaded not guilty to the charge of willful trespass after his July 27 arrest.Riddick illuminates box office with $18.7M LOS ANGELES Riddick is seeing light at the box office.

participated in eight execu tions since I took office, a role I take very seriously. The planned execution of Marshall Lee Gore had already been stayed twice by the courts, and we should not have requested that the date of the execution be moved, Bondi added. On Aug. 13, Scott had scheduled Gores execu tion for 6 p.m. Sept. 10. But less than a week later, Scott advised Florida State Prison Warden John Palmer that he was moving the execution to 6 p.m. Oct. 1 at the request of the Attorney General. Speaking to reporters Monday outside the Capitol, Scott said he was simply complying with a request from a state Cabinet mem ber when he rescheduled the execution. Her office contacted my office and asked for a post ponement, and thats what we did, Scott said. No, I did not know (the reason). When the execution date was rescheduled, a spokes woman for the attorney general said the event con flicted with another previ ously scheduled event. On Friday, a different spokes woman for Bondi confirmed that the Tampa fundraiser is the event that had been scheduled before Gores execution was set for the same night. We set the date, the attorney generals office asked for a postpone ment, so we went along with that, Scott responded when asked Monday if he thought the reason for the delay was proper. We try to comply with when other cabinet members ask for something. We try to work with them. An invitation to the event lists members of the host committee, includ ing House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, and Sens. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, Bill Galvano, RBradenton, Tom Lee, R-Brandon, Wilton Simpson, RTrilby, and Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, and Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn. Bondi has yet to receive a challenger to her 2014 re-election. Gore, 49, whose sanity has been the focus of efforts to block the execution, was convicted of killing two women in Columbia and Miami-Dade and counties. The body of Susan Roark was found in Columbia County in 1988. Gores death warrant is for the murder of Robyn Novick, whose nude body was found in Miami-Dade that same year.

Boston College at USC Maryland at Connecticut Charter school appeal hearing tonight By AMANDA WILLIAMSON email@example.com Greater Truevine Missionary Baptist Church will appeal the Columbia County School Boards decision to terminate a con tract with the church and its proposed char ter school at a hearing tonight in the School Administrative Complex auditorium. Truevines Vine Academy of the Arts, 217 NE Kingston Lane, was slated to open in August. However, the board terminated its contract in July on a recommenda tion from School Superintendent Terry Huddleston. Neither school district officials nor offi cials from Truevine wanted to comment Monday on the hearing. According to a July 23 interview with Assistant Superintendent Narragansett Smith, paperwork submitted by the school did not meet current state requirements. She said the charter school did not ful fill generally accepted standards of fiscal management, facility readiness, personnel requirements and insurance requirements by the July 1 deadline. The numerous defi ciencies constitute a noncompliance with the contract, Smith said. Pastor Antonio Carlisle said the night of the termination he was surprised by the boards move, and promised to file an appeal. On July 30, he submitted the letter requesting an appeal. The board agreed to sit in as the hearing officer on the sugges tion of district officials. Two options were available for the hear ing. Either the school board could serve as hearing officer and issue the final state ment, or the Department of Administrative Hearings in Tallahassee could have heard the appeal and issued a recommendation to the school board. In both cases, the school board would still make the final order. While the hearing starts tonight, the board will not make a recommendation until Sept. 17. After the recommendation, both parties may submit objections to the decision. The final order will be submitted on Sept. 23. If the process does not result favorably for Truevine, the church can continue the process by appealing to the District Court of Appeals. The hearing plays out like a quasi-judi cial proceeding where both sides get to present their arguments with the school board acting as the judge. For the charter school to be reinstated, the board must have a majority vote. Prior to the hearing, the school board will have a final public hearing on the mill age rates and final budget for the 2013-14 fiscal year. The School Board will then have the chance to approve the rates, which they already voted through during the first reading. Millage rates controlled by the district remained the same as last year, with dis cretionary operating millage levied at 0.748 and capital outlay set at 1.5. Capital outlay funds will go toward the purchase of new school buses, debt payment and maintenance costs. The required local effort set by the Florida Legislature declined this year to 4.947. Last year, the required local effort was levied at 5.164. At the end of the previous budget meet ing, the board set a goal to have at least $1 million in the unassigned fund balance by the end of the current year. Finance Director Bonnie Penner has the district on the path to success, with a planned ending unassigned General Fund balance of $989,406.77. She attributes the increase to cuts in positions and an increase in rec ognized revenues. Penner plans to remind the school board that two changes hide inside the more than $2 million increase in the total bud get. This years budget includes the state allocation for the teacher salary increase, as well as the Florida Education Finance Program revenues set aside for Belmont Academy. From staff reports MAYO-A St. Cloud man was killed and a Branford resident critically hurt in a Lafayette County crash Friday, the Florida Highway Patrol reported. Daniel Mark Vaughn, 48, St. Cloud, was killed. Wilton Larry Stewart, 64, suffered critical injuries and was transported to UF Health in Gainesville. Vaughn was traveling north on State Road 349 north of Old River Road at 6:32 p.m. when his 1999 Mazda pickup crossed the centerline and struck the southbound 1994 Chevrolet pickup of Stewart, accord ing to an FHP media release. Stewart veered right in an effort to avoid the crash. However, the left front of his pickup struck Vaughns Mazda on its right side, FHP said. Both men were wearing seat belts, FHP reported. 1 killed, 1 critical in Lafayette crash BONDI: Says she was wrong to change execution Continued From Page 1A ready to teach a music lesson, said Buzzella, principal of Shining Star. It was the first period of the day. Though Buzzella remembers, the up-coming elemen tary school students and middle-schoolers no longer have a first-hand account of the September tragedy. They must learn through history books, through teach ers, and through memorial events. This serves as a way of educating our students and given them a proud example of what it means to be American, Buzzella added. People risked their lives for total strangers, because for many the only thing they had in common was that they were American. The schools event is free and open to the public. Parking will be available at the soccer field next to the Shining Star building. Buzzella suggests guests arrive early to get a good seat and parking spot as he expects a relatively large crowd. At 9 a.m. exactly, the program will start with a moment of silence. The faculty band will perform as stu dents organize themselves in a rainbow around the vet erans and first responders seated at the flagpole. After the band finishes, the students will perform a selection of traditional, patriotic songs, including America, the Beautiful and Grand ol Flag. It was a tragic day in history, but were celebrating the resiliency of the American Spirit, Buzzella said. We salute all of them [victims, fallen heroes and Lake Citys first responders] and this is our small way of paying tribute. Following the close of Shining Stars ceremony at 9:30 a.m., the citys begins thirty minutes later with an opening ceremony by the current fire chief of TIMCO, Jerry King, and a recessional of local first responders, fire departments and law enforcement officers. An invocation by Pastor Lonnie Johns of Christ Central Ministries will proceed the Lake City Police Department Honor Guards flag ceremony. Local Stephen Jones will sing the National Anthem. We are inviting the entire community to share in this commemorative ceremony, said LCPD officer Audr Washington of the Community Relations Unit. Lest we forget is why we continue to commemorate this historic event annual. We must continue to uplift and support those who make the sacrifices daily for our freedom, safety and health. Mayor Stephen Witt will proclaim the day, September 11, 2013, a day the city will never forget. He hopes the city will have a large turnout for the downtown event. Its like Pearl Harbor, Witt added. All those days are just significant in American history. We lost so many lives. We just need to remember what happened and those who gave their life for our country. Bradshaw, the keynote speaker, started her federal career with the U.S. Customs Service as a Customs Inspector in 1997. On March 1, 2003, she transferred from the U.S. Customs Service to the newly formed U.S. Customs and Border Protection under the Department of Homeland Security. She is currently the Chief of Staff, the Public Affairs Liaison and the Law Enforcement Liaison. MEMORIALS: Two set for tomorrow Continued From Page 1A HUNTER: Makes case Continued From Page 1A an easy process, reminding Hunter and audience mem bers of large unexpected expenses like Tropical Storm Debby and state-mandated retirement contributions. District 4 Commissioner Stephen E. Bailey said that step plans cause issues because of their recurring fund ing requirements. However, Hunter urged commissioners to meet with him in a forum or similar informal setting so he could discuss the offices budget needs. He said he didnt want to be left out of budget discussions, comparing his office to a third leg and lone rangers. Of the projected $17 million in ad valorem taxes col lected next year, the Sheriffs Office would receive about $12.4 million as the current budget stands, comprising almost a third of the $39.4 million general fund. Commissioners also discussed the difficulty of funding the Sheriffs Office. According to legislation governing the countys budgeting, only money from the general fund could be apportioned to CCSO. Commissioners were apprehensive to dip into the $13 million general fund reserves to cover a reccuring departmental cost such as pay raises. Im all for working together, District 3 Commissioner Bucky Nash said. We never get the opportunity to just sit at a forum and talk. Nash openly requested the sheriff meet with him to discuss his step plan, encouraging fellow commissioners to do the same. After the meeting, several commissioners met with Hunter in the lobby of the School Board Complex and expressed their desire to review the CCSO budget before the final budget hearing. We have to maintain a dialogue, Hunter said after the meeting. Its not just about the Sheriffs Office. We need to maintain all the countys workforce. County Commission will hold a final public hearing for the 2013-14 budget Sept. 19 at 5:30 p.m. in the School Board Administrative Complex.
C an a possibly war-bound USA survive the unbear-able lightness of being Obama? As Americans debate potential military intervention in Syria, the true grit of our fighting men and women is unquestioned. But their hesitant and erratic commander-in-chief ren-ders worrisome the notion of attack-ing Damascus. On Wednesday, for instance, President Barack Obama declared: I didnt set a red line. The world set a red line. In fact, on Aug. 20, 2012, Obama said, We have been very clear to the Assad regime ... that a red line for us is, we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. Obama installed the trip wire for war with Syria. Now, on the brink of combat, he disowns it. Last week Friday, Obama had an uncharacteristically bellicose Secretary of State John Kerry virtually announce that bombing begins in five minutes. One day later, Obama virtually announced that debate begins in five minutes. Obama said he wanted Congress to permit hostilities. But rather than summon lawmakers to Washington, Obama let Congress summer vaca-tion go on. Still, Obama could have spent the rest of Saturday lobbying leg-islators. That would have signaled his single-mindedness and steely resolve. Instead, Obama played his 141st round of golf as president. Such a lack of seriousness seems to be the Obama Doctrines active ingredient. Consider: -Obama last June authorized the CIA to provide arms to the Free Syrian Army. As of right now, they havent received one weapon from the United States, lamented Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. Reports are that the United States has con-strained other countries from giv-ing them the kinds of things they need. -Last September, Obama met with precisely zero heads of state at the U.N. General Assembly, includ-ing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who virtually begged to see his American counterpart. However, Obama did find time to offer himself as eye candy on the daytime talk show The View. -Obamas former aide, Reggie Love, recently revealed this scene from the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. Most people were, like, down in the Situation Room and (the presi-dent) was, like, Im not going to be down there, I cant watch this entire thing, Love said. So, referring to Obama, himself, and two other staff-ers, we must have played 15 hands, 15 games of spades. Thats right. As Seal Team Six intrepidly pursued the man behind the slaughter on Sept. 11, 2001, their commander-in-chief played cards. -According to a conservative watchdog group called the Government Accountability Institute, Obama skipped 58 percent of his presidential daily briefings between his first inaugural and last March 31.... Unforgivably, Obama blew off his presidential briefing for three days after al-Qaida-affiliated Islamic terrorists killed four U.S. public ser-vants in Benghazi. Obama finally sat down for a full briefing last Sept. 14 -his first such face-to-face huddle in nine days. -After al-Qaida-trained crotch bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab attempted to deto-nate 279 passengers and 11 crew members aboard a Detroit-bound Northwest Airlines jet on Christmas Day 2009, Obama should have spo-ken on camera to reassure rattled Americans and remind terrorists of U.S. strength. Instead, he failed to interrupt his Hawaiian vacation and did not even appear publically for three days.... Back to Syria. Obamas policy seems to be to strike -but not for long, and not hard enough to topple Assad, even though Kerry com-pares him to Hitler. Under the War Powers Act, Obama could bomb Syria for 60 days without congres-sional approval. And yet Obama seeks Congress permission to strike.... Amid epic chaos, Obama instills no confidence. This helps explain why so many Americans are reluc-tant to march to the wavering beat of this unsteady drummer.G etting a higher education in Florida remains a good deal. The states public universities have become more efficient in an era of scarce resources, and some like the University of Florida and Florida State consistently manage to rank among the best in the country and the most affordable. Despite that, state universities are in a bind. They cant continue to deliver the quality education that Floridas parents and students rightly demand with-out getting more help. Theyre hobbled by a chronic lack of public investment, pressure to limit tuition, and competition from other states. All of this repre-sents a challenge to the states leaders and the Board of Governors as they initiate a nationwide search to replace departing Chancellor Frank Brogan. The state has to step up or face an erosion in educational quality. This year, the boards of all 12 state universities agreed to Gov. Rick Scotts request not to seek a tuition increase if the state restored $300 million in spending cuts and came up with millions more in additional funding. Thats an improvement, but it hardly makes up for as much as $900 million in cut-backs since 2007. Tuition increases during that period took up some of the slack, but its not realistic to expect students and their families to continue to make up for underin-vestment by the state. University tuition remains a bargain in Florida, but the financial burden on students is nearing a ceiling. Less than a decade ago, tuition made up about 20 to 25 percent of the cost of a students education. Now, its closer to 50 percent, and more on some cam-puses. Meanwhile, university students face daunting challenges as a result of changes in financing rules that could put a college degree out of reach for many. They are being squeezed especially hard.... Without more funding, there are fewer professors and classes, making it next to impossible for students to graduate in four years a goal set by Gov. Scott and the Legislature. Without salary increases, the best faculty members become easy pickings for rival institutions in other states. It is all well and good for Gov. Scott and lawmakers to push for new accountability standards and $10,000 bachelor degrees. But that does not address the most urgent needs of the university system, nor the critical issue of educational quality and its inextricable link to the states economic growth. The next chancellor must be ready to meet the challenges head-on, have a strong grasp of the problems facing higher education and possess the political finesse to deal with a tightfisted governor and legislators. They like to talk about improving the university system but so far they havent been willing to make the needed investment.F rom the ninth to the 12th centuries, Muslims were among the leading practi-tioners of what was then considered advanced medicine. Islamic doctors borrowed freely from Byzantine, Greek and Roman medicine, unlike their coun-terparts in insular, ignorant Europe. Their scholars saved many valuable texts from being consumed by the ignorance of the Dark Ages. That is why what is happening in Pakistan -and to a lesser extent northern Nigeria and Afghanistan -is so dismaying. These are the only three countries where polio is endemic. Children are particularly suscep-tible to the crippling, occasionally fatal, disease. Out of a combination of malice and ignorance, Taliban warlords in northwest Pakistan are trying to halt polio vaccination programs. In areas controlled by the Taliban and al-Qaida, militants have banned gov-ernment vaccinators, ostensibly to protest against U.S. drone strikes. (Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face.) Several vaccinators and their police escorts have been gunned down to press home the point. In Afghanistan and northern Nigeria, Islamic militants are also trying to end Western-funded vac-cination programs, telling gullible villagers that it is a Western plot to sterilize Muslim children. The U.S. bears some of the blame for this misinformation for having used an immunization program in Abbottabad, Pakistan, as cover in the search for Osama bin Laden. The Pakistani doctor who cooper-ated with the effort was sentenced to 33 years in prison, but a judicial commissioner overturned the con-viction and ordered a new trial.... Health officials confirmed 198 cases of polio in Pakistan in 2011, the highest of any nation. An aggressive vaccination program brought that down to 58 in 2012. The country has had 27 confirmed cases so far this year -17 in areas controlled by the Taliban and al-Qaida. The number is undoubtedly higher, because health officials have been effectively banned from many areas. The solution to this resistance to polio vaccinations is education, but the only education permitted by the Islamic militants is rote memoriza-tion of the Quran. The suspicion here is that the bar against vaccina-tions will last only until a beloved child of a senior Taliban or al-Qaida figure contracts polio.

By PHILIP ELLIOTT Associated Press WASHINGTON A later start to the school day could help teenagers get the most from their classroom time and local districts should consid er delaying the first bell, Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Wednesday. School districts would still be free to set their own start times, Duncan insist ed in a broadcast interview, but he pointed to research that backs up his com ments that rested students are ready students. Duncan said he would not be telling local school leaders when their first bells should ring and said it was up to local leaders to make the deci sions on their own. Theres lots of research and common sense that lots of teens struggle to get up ... to get on the bus, said Duncan, the former chief of Chicago Public Schools. The main reason? Teen brains have a dif ferent biology, said Kyla Wahlstrom, director at the University of Minnesotas Center for Applied Research and Education Improvement. For the last 17 years, Wahlstrom has studied teenagers sleep cycles, brains and learning. She has concluded that schools that want ready students must have students arrive rested. Absenteeism, tardi ness, depression, obesity, drop-out rates and even auto accidents all decline when students head to school after a good night of sleep. Schools are starting to take notice. Take, for instance, Virginias Fairfax County Public Schools. Most medical profession als recommend between 8.5 and 9.5 hours of sleep for students. The Fairfax district surveyed students in grades 8, 10 and 12 and found two-thirds of them were sleeping seven hours or less each school night. Among high school seniors, 84 percent rou tinely slept less than seven hours each night during the 2011 survey.

By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High has prided itself on defense since the arrival of head coach Brian Allen three years ago. One of their best performances came on Thursday as the Tigers defense led Columbia to a 28-14 win against Lincoln High in Tallahassee. It was the first time the Tigers had defeat-ed Lincoln since 1999. The tone was set early for the Tigers with Zedrick Woods first sack of the game, forcing Lincoln into a three-and-out on the Trojans second possession after taking over in Tiger territory. The defense did give up two touchdowns, but both were on home run plays. One came on a 32-yard run and the other on an 80-yard pass. Two more Tigers would come up with sacks in the first half, as Carlos Vega and Malechi Jean both forced quarterback Darius Harvey down in the back-field. But the Tigers were also able to force turnovers when they needed them most. Lincoln twice drove deep into Columbia territory, but Terry Calloway and Roger Cray came up with big plays. Calloway picked up a fumble and returned it 55-yards to reverse field position, and Cray picked off a Harvey pass with the Trojans knocking on the end zones door. But the best of the Columbia defense was yet to come. In the second half, the Tigers held Lincoln without a score. Bryan Williams issued the Tigers fourth sack of the game after replacing Trey Marshall, who left the game with a ruptured stom-ach, to stall the Trojans opening drive. When Lincoln tried a fourth-and-1 at Columbias 30, running back Matthew Donaldson met a brick wall. Austin Harper, starting for injured Tyrone Sands, came up with a fumble recovery on Lincolns next drive and registered a sack on Lincolns next drive. Woods followed up with his second sack of the game and Lincoln was again forced to punt. But Woods wasnt done. He owned the fourth quarter including a sack on fourth and goal when Lincoln was trying to cut the lead to seven. On the games final play, Woods put down an exclamation point with his fourth sack. He said his motivation was playing for his fallen brother. We all wanted to play for (Trey), Woods said. We know that we had adver-sity in front of us, but we wanted to play for him. We know hes going to be all right. I just wanted to play hard and execute. But even Woods couldnt have expected four sacks against the states second-ranked team in 7A. It feels good to know that we played like that as a unit and shut them down, especially since they were throwing a lot of formations at us, Woods said. Theyre one of the top teams in the state and to hold them to two touchdowns was say-ing a lot. It was saying enough for Woods to believe that the Tigers should be the top-ranked team in the state. Oh yeah, I think we should be No. 1, Woods said. Were the hardest working team in America. Class 6A poll Record Pts Prv1. Armwood (8) 2-0 167 22. Mi. Central (10) 1-1 157 13. Columbia 2-0 145 44.

By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE It took Fort White High to hold up the banner for District 2-4A last week. Fort White, which doubled up Newberry 36-18, was the only district team to post a win. In winning the sixth straight game in the series, the Indians built a 16-0 lead before lightning struck with four minutes left in the first quarter. Both teams score three touchdowns after the delay. Fort White (1-0) forced six turnovers, led by Andrew Bakers two inter-ceptions, and blocked an extra point and a punt. Tavaris Williams rushed for 212 yards. The Indians play Bradford High on Friday. Newberry hosts Jefferson County High. Madison County High was beaten on Boot Hill, 36-6, by Eastern Christian Academy. Eastern Christian is a football virtual school that fields players from the Washington D.C. area. Taylor County High ran out to a 21-0 lead at Williston High, but ended up losing to the Red Devils, 43-40. Williston is back in the FHSAA fold after play-ing as an independent for two years.

The Lady Indians hosted the Hornets in a regular season match on Monday. Lafayette won in four sets .ASSOCIATED PRESSRafael Nadal defeated Novak Djokovic in four sets to win the U.S. Open mens singles tennis championship on Monday Lady Indians are stung by HornetsBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Fort White Highs volleyball team gave away the first set to Lafayette High. It proved costly, as the Hornets won 25-23, 25-15, 22-25, 25-23. After trailing 11-8 following the first rotation, the Fort White caught fire, sparked by four service points from Arianna House. The Lady Indians built a 23-17 after service points from Mallorie Godbey, Cheyenne Patterson and Ashley Cason. When Lafayette broke Cason it didnt seem like a big deal. However, Savanna Hamlin stepped to the line and baffled Fort White with short serves and the Hornets went on to win. In the second set, Fort White got six service points from Cason, but Lafayette rolled to the win. Fort White fought back in the third set. Trailing 7-6, Godbey served four points. House added three more points, two coming on a block and kill by Leah Johnson. The Lady Indians built the lead to 23-18 and held on. Fort White jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the fourth set, as Cason served for four points. The Hornets and a five-point margin after the first rotation. The Lady Indians closed to 21-22, but Lafayette held on for the match. Cason had 29 assists and four aces to go with her 15 service points. House had 13 kills and 10 service points. Johnson had nine kills. Rykia Jackson had 37 digs. They show me every game they want it more and more, Fort White head coach Kelbie Ronsonet said. They tried really hard. Im proud of the way they played. Fort White (2-5, 0-2) travels to Interlachen High today for a 6 p.m. district match. Nadal too goodBy HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressNEW YORK Hard to believe this is the same Rafael Nadal who was home during the U.S. Open a year ago, nursing a bad left knee. Hard to believe this is the guy sent packing in the first round of Wimbledon in June, losing against someone ranked 135th. Looking fit as can be and maybe even better than ever, the No. 2-ranked Nadal pulled away from No. 1 Novak Djokovic 6-2, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 on Monday in a taut, tense U.S. Open final for his 13th Grand Slam title. Very, very emotional, no? Nadal said during the on-court trophy presenta-tion. Probably only my team knows how much (this) means for me. It was a 3-hour, 21-minute miniseries of cliffhang-ers and plot twists and a pair of protagonists who inspired standing ovations in the middle of games. There was no quit in either of them, during points that lasted 15, 25, even more than 50 strokes. Probably nobody brings my game to the limit like Novak, said Nadal, who collected $3.6 million in prize money, including a $1 million bonus for results during the North American hard-court circuit. This was their 37th match against each other, the most between any two men in the Open era, and Nadal has won 22. It also was their third head-to-head U.S. Open final in the last four years. Nadal beat Djokovic for the 2010 title, and Djokovic won their rematch in 2011. They know each others games so well, and play such similar hustle-to-every-ball styles, but in the end, it was Nadal who was superior. He was too good. He definitely deserved to win this match today and this trophy, Djokovic said. Obviously disappointing to lose a match like this. Nadal improved to 22-0 on hard courts and 60-3 overall in 2013 with nine titles, including at the French Open, which made him the first man with at least one Grand Slam tro-phy in nine consecutive seasons. The 27-year-old Spaniards total of 13 major championships ranks third in the history of mens tennis, behind only Roger Federers 17 and Pete Sampras 14. Nadal no longer wears the strips of white tape he once did to bolster his left knee, and the way he covered the court against Djokovic switching from defense to offense in a blink proved that while he says he still feels pain in that leg, he definite-ly does not have problems moving around. These are the same two who played the lon-gest Grand Slam final in history, a nearly six-hour struggle that left both needing to sit in chairs during the ceremony after Djokovics victory at the 2012 Australian Open. This time, when it ended with a forehand into the net by Djokovic, Nadal dropped to his back on the court, saluted by an Arthur Ashe Stadium crowd that included the Queen of Spain. Nadal was relentless from shot to shot, yes, and from point to point, too, but what might have been most impressive was the way he stayed steady when Djokovic recovered from a rough start and began asserting himself.
DEAR ABBY: I am a 75year-old man who lives in a gated community. For the last eight months I have been seeing a woman who lives nearby. We are start-ing to fall in love. Our problem is her 95year-old mother, who lives with her. Her mom is pret-ty healthy and has some money, but shes scared to be left alone. Because of this, my lady and I have difficulty finding private time. We get out for short periods, but wed like to go away for a weekend together. If we suggest it, Mom makes a stink and gets nasty with her daugh-ter. We have tried talking with her about it, but she refuses, sulks and wont talk for days. Shes suffering from slight dementia, but gets around OK with a walker. Mom claims she doesnt want or need a grandma sitter. She wants only her daughter to take care of her and be with her. Any help would be appreciated. -COURTING TROUBLE IN ARIZONA DEAR COURTING: If your lady friend wants to have any life of her own, she will have to stiffen her spine and deal with Mama. This includes not allow-ing her mothers sulking to prevent the two of you from having an occasional weekend together. She should contact assisted-living facilities in the area and find out if they will accept guests for short stays of only a few days or a week. If the answer is yes, Mama should be offered a choice: Either someone comes to stay with her while youre gone, a friend perhaps, or she will have to stay else-where because being alone is not an option. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My brother died earlier this year due to an overdose. His wife and one of my sisters lived with him. They also gave him the drugs that caused his death. Abby, they are treating Mom, my husband and me like dirt. Mom had no say in the funeral at all. You would think that since she was the mother, the wife would have included her. They have been hav-ing parties ever since the funeral and spending the money left and right, while not paying the mortgage on the house. They have turned my other sister against us, blocked us on social media and cut us off completely. They also turned another part of the family against us. I know it involves drug abuse on the part of all of them. We didnt do any-thing to them other than bring forth evidence of what they did and confront them. I have no idea how to trust or to build a rela-tionship with them again if they ever decide to come back into our lives. Its painful to deal with a death, and then more trials on top of that. Any advice? -BROKENHEARTED IN TAMPA, FLA. DEAR BROKENHEARTED: Im sorry for your loss, but please recognize that when relatives are as dysfunc-tional as yours, its safer for you, your husband and your mother to MOVE ON. And if they do decide to come back into your lives, for the sake of your sanity, run the other way. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: Are there any letters or top-ics you wont touch with a 10-foot pole? -JUST WONDERING DEAR WONDERING: None come to mind. At one point or another, this column has addressed darn near everything and may have offended almost everyone. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): What you want and what you need are not the same. Dont allow anyone to guilt you into spending to prove your love or dedi-cation. Speak up for your rights and begin making travel plans. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Love problems are likely to arise due to a situation being blown out of proportion.

A work relationship based on a creative connection will bring about a chance to try something new. Love and romance will bring you happiness. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Say less and do more. You may be torn between what someone wants and what you can afford to do. Put greater emphasis on bringing a unique and interesting alternative to an opportunity that can alter your life or a friend-ship. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): An emotional challenge must not be allowed to take over. Call in favors or schedule your time so that you can take care of situ-ations as they arise. Dont leave anything to chance.

Listen, but dont voice your opinion or take sides. You would be wise to mind your own business and focus on your respon-sibilities. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): A change in the way you earn your living or what you learn that will ensure a bright future is apparent. Believe in your ability to excel at whatever task you are given and you will make a noteworthy impression. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You will pick up unusual ideas if you get involved in functions relat-ed to work or a plan you want to pursue.
