By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comThe Florida Gateway College Board of Trustees approved an $83,000 increase in total compensation for the college president after a state report listed him among the 10 low-est paid presidents in Florida. President Charles Hall now earns a total of $370,792.42, compared to $287,414.43 the year before. His base salary for the 2013-14 year is $262,816.35, a $37,608 increase from last year. Currently, his benefits include $48,000 for Florida retirement, $15,000 for health insurance and $26,281 in an annual annu-ity. Approximately $17,000 of Halls compensation comes from annual expense reim-burse-ments, such as monthly stipends to lease a vehicle and cover internet access. Last year, he received only about $12,000 for the extra compensation packages. Florida has 28 community colleges, Board of Trustees Chairman Thomas Riherd said. When we look at those salaries, we try not to be in the bottom third. If they pay much more than you do, all they have to do is pick up the phone and start picking your people off. Of all the community colleges, Hall previously ranked 21st in terms of annual com-pensation, according to a May report released by the Office of the Chief Inspector General. Based on updated data collected by the Lake City Reporter through public document requests across the state, Hall now ranks 11th out of 28 in Florida with CALL US:(386) 752-1293SUBSCRIBE TOTHE REPORTER:Voice: 755-5445Fax: 752-9400 TODAY IN PEOPLE Farm Bureau feast.

SUNDAYEDITION Vol. 139, No. 163 1D 7A 1A Christian group, USDA still at odds FGCsHall getssalaryboost Hall Presidents total compensation rises by $83,000. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comAfter nearly 10 months of providing food and other services to local needy families without a USDA or Florida Gateway Food Bank contract, Christian Service Center officials said Friday that USDA representa-tives have been in contact with them in an effort to break the impasse. The (Florida) Department of Agriculture that handles the USDA food has been in touch with us to clarify the meaning of their policies and to make sure that every-one understands just what those policies say, said Kay Daly, Christian Service Center executive director. We appreciate that. However, it is interesting that those policies, although stated publicly in the Lake City Reporter and elsewhere, were not stated that way in the original meeting that started this whole discussion. The CSC board will take up the matter in October, but it is unclear whether a resolution is in sight. Last week Daly said when she met with a Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services inspector and a Florida Gateway Food Bank inspector in November, 2012, two issues arose whether they could pray and share their faith with clients, and whether they had to remove religious icons and imagery from their premises. In the end, CSC declined to sign a USDA contract to receive food from Florida Gateway Food Bank to distribute to the poor. Daly said she was told CSC agents could no longer pray with clients if they were to receive USDA food.CURRENT PRACTICE Daly said the current practice at CSC Roll out the (rain) barrels USDA has contacted CSC to try to break impasse;CSC board to meet in Oct.

Yoho talks Obamacare, Syria, immigrationBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comImploring local residents to make their voices heard, U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Gainesville) touched on topics ranging from Syria and U.S. immigration policy to Obamacare during a private Tea Party gathering Saturday morning. The main message I wanted to get across is the importance of people pulling together on a com-mon cause and standing up and being the voice of government, he said. It is We the people and I think thats the biggest thing for people to get involved, get informed and get engaged. Yoho, who represents the Third Congressional District of Florida, including Columbia, Dixie, Levy, Suwannee, Lafayette, Hamilton, Gilchrist, Bradford and parts of Alachua County, was the keynote speaker for morning ses-sion of the annual meeting of the North Central Tea Party at the Taylor Building on Birley Road. Yoho spoke about the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, the Syrian conflict, illegal immigration, U.S. foreign policy, Common Core, the United Nations, the Yoho Trust Act bill, Keystone Pipeline and unemployment, along with top-ics that arose from audience questions. Yoho said Obamacare should be repealed and defunded. He said chief executive operation officers from several America companies, as well as others, have spoken about Obamacare and how it will adversely impact the possibility of people living the American Dream. I think its the wrong way for America to go, he said. It will create more problems, it will bankrupt this country and it has to go away. When asked about a posssible strike against Syria, Yoho said he Yoho Hits on wide range of topics during privateTea Party gathering. YOHO continued on 3A

AROUND FLORIDA Friday: N/A Friday: N/A Saturday: Afternoon: N/A Evening: N/A Saturday: Afternoon: N/A Evening: N/A Wednesday: N/A After acquittal, Zimmerman still in spotlight LAKE MARY Whether they think that he got away with murder ing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin or that he was just a brave neighborhood watch volunteer standing his ground, many Americans cant seem to get enough of George Zimmerman. And he cant seem to stop giv ing it to them. So its hardly surpris ing that everything Zimmerman does produces a Twitterverse explosion and spins out into heavy news coverage. Comedian Deon Cole nailed it during an appearance on Late Night with Conan OBrien a couple of days after the July 13 verdict. Merely being found not guilty, he said of Zimmerman, doesnt mean that youre a free man. He certainly hasnt been free from the spotlight. Two stops for speed ing. A cellphone photo of a smiling Zimmerman touring the Florida factory where the 9 mm semi-auto matic pistol used in the February 2012 shooting was made. And, this week, police dash-cam footage of Zimmerman kneeling in the street to be cuffed after an alleged scuffle with his estranged wife and father-in-law. Like gangster Al Capone going to Alcatraz for tax evasion and O.J. Simpson serving time for robbing some sports memorabilia dealers, some interpret this series of unfortunate events as part of some cosmic comeuppance for a wannabe cop. But is he a kind of George Ziggy-man, per petually stalked by storm clouds, or more like one of those California wildfires, creating his own weather patterns? Seems like a little bit of both, according to crisis management expert Mark McClennan. How does he keep resetting his 15 minutes of fame? said the Bostonarea consultant, whos on the Public Relations Society of Americas board of directors. Id say its a two-way street. Granted, Zimmerman didnt expect his visit to the Kel-Tec CNC Industries factory in Cocoa, Fla., to be a public event. Zimmerman has turned down all Associated Press interview requests since his trial, and his law yers didnt respond to mes sages about this story. But Shawn Vincent, a spokes man for the law firm that defended Zimmerman, told Yahoo News of the factory visit: That was not part of our public relations plan. But McClennan asnt surprised when TMZ published a photo of Zimmerman shak ing hands with a KelTec employee and Zimmerman shouldnt have been, either. Instead of being a 24hour news cycle, its now a 24-second news cycle for anything to spring up, said McClennan, a senior vice president at Schwartz MSL. You need to be careful of what youre doing. ... And if theres anything you do that is newsworthy or interest ing, people are going to write about it, talk about it, share about it, tweet it, put it on YouTube because its going to drive clicks, drive interest, and its going to spread virally. Its not just his public outings and repeated brushes with the legal system that have kept Zimmerman in the spot light. Martins parents were prominent partici pants in last months 50th anniversary commemo ration of the March on Washington, and several civil rights leaders have called for the repeal of stand-your-ground laws, which generally remove a persons duty to retreat if possible in the face of danger. Even when he helped extricate a family from an overturned SUV in July, Zimmerman couldnt catch a break. The grateful couple can celed a news conference, defense attorney Mark OMara said, for the pos sibility of blowback against them. People immediately suggested the incident was staged or at least poked fun at the timing. Lets get this straight, Nigel Stevens wrote on the site www.opposingviews. com. Zimmerman, in his only documented ven ture into the real world, heroically transforms into Volunteer Paramedic and rescues someone from deadly circumstances. Is this really happening? Aaron Sorkin and Steven Spielberg couldnt have collaborated to come up with that ending. Stevens after dub bing Zimmerman the most vilified man in America went on to suggest the next acts on the watchmans Karmic Redemption Tour: Providing emergency childbirth assistance to Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, balancing Detroits budget and cap turing NSA leaker Edward Snowden. Zimmerman certainly has his supporters. Several groups launched peti tion drives urging the Department of Justice not to pursue federal civil rights charges against him. The jury has spo ken and found that the prosecution failed to prove, beyond a reason able doubt, that George Zimmerman had malice or racism in his heart or even a reckless disregard for Trayvon Martins life when he shot the teenager, declared a petition on dick morris.rallycongress.com. The Justice Department should now butt out. But the trial seems to have set in motion some forces that are beyond Zimmermans control. In late August, Shellie Zimmerman pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor perjury charge for lying during a bail hearing after her hus bands arrest. Last week, she filed for divorce, and felt compelled to tell the world about it. On ABCs Good Morning America, she called her husband selfish and accused him of leaving her with a bunch of pieces of broken glass after the acquittal. Zimmerman blames the trial for the implosion of his marriage, lawyers have said. His wifes attorney, Kelly Sims, said the couple have been on a Tower of Terror an apparent ref erence to the harrowing, Twilight Zone-themed ride at nearby Walt Disney World since the shoot ing and had spent only a few days together before the divorce filing. But was it wise for Zimmerman to go to the home Monday and take photos while his wife and her family were there gathering belongings? OMara said Zimmerman needs to be a lot more circumspect about what he does, since every action is hyperfocused on and scruti nized. I understand theyre not private individuals anymore never by their own doing, said OMara, who continues to handle Zimmermans defamation lawsuit against NBC but does not intend to repre sent him if any charges result from this investiga tion. Now, with every thing that has happened in the past year and a half, it would be very nice if we could let them separate and divorce as they need to in two separate paths because theyve decided they cant live together. Zimmerman may be his own worst enemy. Defense attorney Barry Scheck notes that trouble often simply begets more trouble. The pressure from the situation often adds an additional distortion to their behavior, said Scheck, a co-director of the Innocence Project, and part of the dream team that helped win Simpsons acquittal on charges of killing his ex-wife and a friend. So its a very dif ficult situation, and I think the people that have been most successful with it are the ones that have a clear sense of what theyre about and just stick to it. McClennan insists that o reputation not even Zimmermans is irrepa rably beyond repair. In crisis management ... once you resolve the fundamental issues, you go into purgatory for a while, where you start build ing it again and you start making the positives, he said. But any one misstep can bring it right back to the beginning again, and youve got to start building all over again. Purgatory, at least in Catholic theology, sug gests a temporary expia tion on the way to a state of grace. Dr. Patrick Williams, a clinical psy chologist and founder of the Institute for Life Coach Training, isnt so sure Zimmerman is heading in that direction. LOS ANGELES Queen Latifah knows a reliable stress reliever to cope with the pressures of launching a daytime show. I have a drum set in my dressing room and I go in there and play for a few minutes to relax. They can for get about it being quiet around here Im going to bang my drums, said the singer-songwriter and actress, whos adding the job of host to her resume. With Mondays debut of the syn dicated The Queen Latifah Show (check local listings for station, time), she intends to make noise in the competitive realm of daytime TV. Im naturally a bit edgier than typical daytime, but I kind of want to push things a little bit further, as far as I can respectfully, within the daytime space, said Latifah. I want more out of daytime TV. I want more choices, I want more heart, more humor. She also wants more music, befit ting someone who broke ground as a female rapper before expanding into other genres. Her wish list is varied and includes Coldplay and Kings of Leon, and shes already got Alicia Keys and Plain White Ts lead singer Tom Higgenson booked for her first week. Other inaugural guests include John Travolta, Sharon Stone, Jamie Foxx, Jake Gyllenhaal and Lisa Kudrow. Also invited are regular people who do amazing things that are inspirational and who deserve to share the stage with celebrities, Latifah said. As much bad news as we see every day, its good to see people out there doing positive things that give you hope. Im an optimist, she said. Mondays show will feature a per formance by preteen actress-singer Willow Smith, with dad Will Smith dropping in Tuesday. If the schedule seems a tad Smith family heavy, its with good reason: Latifah and Smith go way back, and he and wife Jada Pinkett Smith are among the produc ers of Latifahs new venture. Shes just fantastic, Pinkett Smith told reporters in August. I just feel like every (day), you have the opportunity to kick it with your girlfriend, Queen Latifah. Kidman says shes OK but shaken after collision NEW YORK Nicole Kidman says she was shaken up after being knocked down by a bicyclist on a city sidewalk. Kidman appeared on the red carpet Thursday night celebrating Francisco Costas 10th anniversary as the womens creative director of the Calvin Klein Collection. Earlier, the 46-year-old actress was outside a hotel when she was hit by a bicyclist. She was knocked to the ground, but in an interview with The Associated Press at the Calvin Klein event, she said she was OK. Kidman added: Im up, Im walk ing around, but I was shaken. The New York Police Department says a 19-year-old bicyclist was issued three summonses for riding a bike on the sidewalk, riding a bike with no helmet and reckless driving. Stevie Nicks, Lady Antebellum team on Crossroads NASHVILLE, Tenn. Lady Antebellum may be on hiatus, but fans are still getting a chance to see something new from the Nashville trio. Lady A will join Stevie Nicks on Friday nights episode of CMT Crossroads, the show that matches country stars with partners from dif ferent musical genres.

was not in favor of attack-ing a country that hasnt attacked America. This is not our war its not our fight, and we dont have a dog in the fight, he said. Yoho spoke about the reported use of chemical weapons in Syria and said this is a time for diplomacy, not for bombs and guns. Yoho said he wants everyone to know their voice does matter and they should tell the government what they like and dont like. I feel the American people standing up, giving a voice from them to the representatives and the representatives standing up in Congress, changed us going into Syria at this moment in time, he said. I think that sent a loud mes-sage to the administration and the leadership on both sides because they were all supporting the president and we said no. Yoho said he isnt in favor of the current immigration bill the way its written. I think thats a perfect example of where Congress has failed to lead in the last 30 years, he said. Thats why we have the mess we have right now and its the same thing with our foreign policy. We have failed to lead and follow our rulebook and the rule-book is the Constitution on our foreign policy. On immigration, its an injus-tice to the American people and the immigrant com-ing here because we dont have a good path for peo-ple to come legally. Weve got a porous border and from where I stand that has not changed. We have to secure the border first and when we can prove weve secured that, and its just not an immigrant issue its a national security issue .... Theres people coming across our south-ern border that dont like us, so we need to secure the border and once we do that we can get responsible immigration control.

The report resulted from an order by Gov. Rick Scott to deter-mine the pay and benefits of state college presidents. It showed the salaries varied widely, and that many of the contracts appeared to violate the law. In total, Floridas community college presidents were paid about $10 million in sala-ries and benefits during the 2012-13 fiscal year. The salaries ranged from $144,000 for the president of North Florida Community College in Madison to more than $630,000 for the Miami Dade College presi-dent. Im in my 17th year at Florida Gateway College. Im the fifth senior president in Florida, Hall said. With all my years experience and education, the pay that I got was right on target. Since Hall has been president of the college, he has revamped cur-riculum to fit the evolving needs of students headed into the work-force, improved technology acces-sibility on campus and boosted arts and entertainment offerings for the community through FGCs Entertainment Series. During his tenure, Hall provided the guidance to help plan, design and fund the Wilson S. Rivers Library and Media Center proj-ect that saw the construction and opening of the most technological-ly sophisticated and well-designed building on the schools campus. Hall oversaw the rebranding of the college, changing the name from Lake City Community College to Florida Gateway College. Hall has been the driving force to put FGC in a position to offer four-year degrees in select areas, such as nursing. When the first bachelors degree is presented at the school, he will be at the helm. In 2010, the college was recognized as one of the best colleges in Florida by Washington Monthly Magazine. I love my job, and I love working at Florida Gateway College, Hall said. We have an excellent staff. Were always looking at ways to make the college more accessible. The Inspector General required Florida Gateway College to elimi-nate Halls rolling contract and replace it with an annual contract. Rolling contracts automatically renew each year, extending the contract without a signed extension or amendment by the board of trustees. The report stated roll-ing contracts have the potential to allow colleges not to amend their contracts in a timely man-ner to comport with changes to statutes. While Hall had always been evaluated annually, his raise will now be based on the boards performance review, said FGC Business Services Vice President Marilyn Hamm. In the past, he received the same per-centage raise as the faculty. Hamm said faculty received a 3 percent raise this year, which Hall would also have gotten if his con-tract had not been revamped. In the absence of an Inspector Generals Report, I doubt we would have done anything to the contract, Riherd said. We want to make sure we keep Dr. Hall. ... I dont see any area where hes not achieving what were working to get. Before the report, the board of trustees did not have a way to compare Halls salary to others in the state. A month after the reports release, the board decid-ed to increase Halls salary to a figure they felt was fair compared to other presidents salaries in the state. Hall said it was the first time that there was an adjustment in my salary since approximately 2006-07. In a letter to the Inspector General from Riherd, he said the board planned a study session to analyze the reports findings and work with legal counsel to address issues out-lined. They included: amending Halls rolling contract, legal review of contract language to ensure com-pliance and developing specific per-formance goals in the presidents annual contract tied to the annual evaluation. Riherd promised the Inspector General that Hall would have a new contract by January 2014. However, the board approved the proposed contract for the 2014-15 year in June, along with an adjustment to the base salary. Board member Don Kennedy made the motion, which was seconded by Kathryn McInnis and approved unanimously. We need strong leadership in order to achieve the goals that we have for Florida Gateway College and the vision we have to improve the quality of life in North Central Florida, Riherd said. President Hall does that. By STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreporter.comA man on an ATV was in critical condition after being struck by a pickup truck Thursday afternoon, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Robert V. Chadwick, 24, Lake City was leaving a driveway on NW Saturn Lane on a a Mongoose ATV when he rode into the path of a 2012 Ford F250 pickup, FHP said in a news release. The pickup struck the ATV on its left side, the release said. The vehicles came to a rest on the south shoulder of NW Saturn Lane. Chadwick was taken to UF Health in Gainesville and was in critical condition following the accident. The driver of the truck, Erroll Terzi, 58, Lake City, was unhurt, FHP said. Final hearing on city budget Mon.By STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreporter.comCity Council members will host the final public hearing for the 2013-14 bud-get during tomorrow evenings City Council meeting. The citys proposed $48,740,673 budget will remain relatively stable compared to last years $51.5 million. The roughly one percent reduction in expenditure is due in large part to $3.2 million decrease in the Water/Sewage Construction Funds expen-ditures. Its because of the capital reduction in capital projects, City Manager Wendell Johnson said. We completed an automated meter reader system and a couple of other projects that cost about $3 million. The current 3.9816 millage rate will also remain the same despite a $5 million drop in property value. Although the council could increase millage to the 4.0127 roll-back rate, it would only account for a $4,000 shortfall from the current rate, according to Johnson. A lay person would see that as an increase in taxes, when in reality its not, Johnson said. Were not raising the millage rate because its a fairly insignificant difference. The Lake City City Council will meet Monday, Sept. 16 at 7:00 p.m. in City Hall downtown.
S toic. That word best describes New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. In an increasingly juvenile nation, Kellys granite tempera-ment can be a tad daunting. But if you knew what Kelly knows, you might not smile much, either. Do not think for a second that al-Qaida and those who share its ideology have forgotten about New York, Kelly said Monday. Images of the World Trade Center and scenes of the city are regularly displayed on jihadist websites and al-Qaida publications. Its propagan-dists call on followers in the United States to take up the battle at home and use bombs, guns and poison to indiscriminately kill. Kelly told the Association for a Better New York and the Council on Foreign Relations that Americas financial and media capi-tal remains militant Islams target of choice. In just the past 10 months, Kelly said, there have been sev-eral plots with a nexus to New York City. -Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 23, arrived from Bangladesh on a student visa.

On Aug. 9, he received a 30-year prison sentence. -Raees Alam Qazi and Sheheryar Alam Qazi, two Pakistani-born brothers, were nabbed in Florida last Nov. 29 after plotting to detonate theaters and restaurants in Times Square. -New York Police Department undercover efforts prompted the arrest of Justin Kaliebe, 18, as he boarded a jet for Yemen, allegedly to join Ansar al-Sharia, aka al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula. -An unnamed, Iranian-trained al-Qaida agent met a conspirator here. Among other objectives, they planned to attack a train between New York and Canada. -Just days after allegedly bombing the Boston Marathon last April, killing three people and wound-ing 264, brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev drove toward Manhattan with pipe bombs and explosive pressure cookers. Had their hostage not escaped, Kelly explained, They would have arrived in midtown in time to launch a devastating attack at the morning rush hour. After 9/11, Kelly transformed the NYPD into a terrorism-fight-ing powerhouse. Kelly boosted his personnel on the FBIs Joint Counterterrorism Task Force from 17 people to 120. The NYPD has become a mini CIA. Senior officers are stationed in 11 cities overseas and cooperate with local cops. These New Yorkers visit the scenes of terrorist attacks and gather real-time information that guides the NYPDs operations at home, Kelly noted. Our enemies are smart, patient and committed, Kelly commented. In addition to the recent cases I mentioned, since 9/11 there have been plots to blow up the Herald Square subway station; to attack synagogues in the Bronx and Manhattan; to detonate the fuel lines that run under John F. Kennedy airport; to conduct suicide bombings on three rush-hour subway lines; to explode a car bomb in the middle of Times Square; and to attack post office buildings and returning U.S. troops with pipe bombs, just to name a few. ... What we cant count are the additional plots that did not take place as a consequence of our vigi-lance. New York has survived 16 terror conspiracies since 9/11, the NYPD reports. The terrorist threat to the United States is as dangerous as ever, Kelly concluded. New York remains squarely in the crosshairs of global terrorism. This is a time for vigilance, not complacency. Against this terrifying backdrop, meanwhile, the Oval Offices cur-rent occupant shabbily contorts himself to hoist his shoe bottom atop the desk while standing and chatting by phone. President Barack Obama fled the Situation Room during the bin Laden raid to play cards. After addressing America Aug. 31 about striking Syria, he raced from the Rose Garden to his 141st presidential golf outing. His serpentine mis-management of the Syrian fiasco boasts the twists and turns of a sidewinder, but none of its bite. Meanwhile, this farces soundtrack features Russias Vladimir Putin strumming Obama like a balalaika. Obama makes it easy to forget the phrase adult supervision. For an instant reminder of it, however, look to New Yorks top cop, Ray Kelly. L ets clarify something right at the start: The county commission is not the police. Commissioners do not have subpoena power and cannot compel people to turn over their records on threat of a contempt citation. All they can do, when the books dont balance in this county-funded agency or that, is order an audit and forward the results on to someone who can do something about it should further action be war-ranted. Having said that, we think a second look is indeed called for in the case of the Columbia Youth Soccer Association. Upwards of $52,000 was discovered missing from CYSAs accounts during a county-ordered audit a year or so back. Actually, the audit was never performed, because, by definition, an audit is an examination of relevant financial documents, and the documents in this case were missing or destroyed. So what resulted was termed instead, simply but accurately, a report. To its credit, the county commission quickly put in place safeguards to prevent this sort of thing from happening again. However, there was never any real move to determine just how the money had gone missing to begin with. The consensus was, poor management, and worse record-keeping, on the part of then-CYSA offi-cials. But now that the issue has surfaced once again (resurrected by Commissioner Ron Williams), we are concerned by the reasoning of some who say a second look just isnt worth it. Commissioner Scarlet Frisina, also a non-voting member of the countys Sports Advisory council and the commissioner best positioned to call for a forensic audit of CYSA records suggested such a move might not be fiscally responsible, since it would likely cost more than the missing funds themselves. With all due respect, we think Commissioner Frisina may be missing the point. Were not suggesting there was intentional wrongdoing on the part of anyone at CYSA. However, what about the next guy?Saying its not worth looking into the loss of $50,000 because the cost of an investigation would exceed that sum, sends the wrong message, in our view. It creates a potential moral hazard, in which some misguided soul might imagine he could, under the right circumstances, help himself to county funds with impunity. We think the county should at least ask its auditors to take another look at whatever records are still avail-able and try as best they can to piece together just what went wrong at CYSA in 2010-11, the period dur-ing which the funds went missing. It would be money well spent. N ASA has confirmed that its space probe Voyager 1, after a 36-year, 11.5-billion-mile journey, has become the first manmade object to leave our solar system and enter the cold and immense void of what is truly outer space. Voyager actually passed that milestone in August 2012, but NASA wanted to confirm and reconfirm that Voyager, by now a technologi-cal antique, had clearly broken out of the plasma bubble that surrounds our little gaggle of planets and was truly in interstellar space. Voyage 1s primary mission was a photographic and scientific fly-by of Jupiter and Saturn (its sister ship, Voyager 2, was assigned to examine Uranus and Neptune). If the probe still was functioning, it was to go on to Pluto, which it did. In 1990, the probe was told to quit sending back pictures, in part to save energy but mostly because it was so far out there was noth-ing left to photograph. Voyager is still sending back data, but it now takes 17 hours and 22 minutes for the signals to reach NASAs lab in Pasadena, Calif. Voyager was launched in 1977 -the same year the first Star Wars was released, space buffs like to point out -and still relies on 1970s technology. Voyager carries an eight-track tape recorder to store its data, has a computer that The New York Times calculates has a fraction of the memory of a low-end iPhone and sends data using a 23-watt transmitter, which the Times com-pares to a refrigerator light bulb. When the eight-track recorder began running out of storage space, NASAs young programmers were accustomed to working with virtually unlimited storage capacity. The solution was to bring out of retirement 77-year-old NASA engi-neer Lawrence Zottarelli, who had worked with the eight-track units. The team successfully fed data into two computers made by a company that was merged out of existence three years ago. When NASA made its announcement to the small Voyager support staff, the agency played the theme from Star Trek with its voiceover directive to boldly go where no man has gone before. And that mission involves its next space rendezvous with a dwarf star in the constellation Camelopardalis -in 40,000 years. But the precedent-setting probe had better hurry. Voyager 2 is only about three years behind it in hit-ting interstellar space.

OBITUARIES Hands-on learning at the IchetuckneeBy AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comSixth-grade students at Fort White Middle School leave the ordinary class-room setting once a month to venture to the shores of the Ichetucknee River, learning hands-on about water quality, soil horizons and Florida ecosystems through the PARKnership Program. On Friday, the Florida Department of Environmental Protections Office of Environmental Education awarded the program a $5,000 mini-grant to help fund staff training, trip expenses and advertis-ing for the Earth Day Water Festival. We are very excited to receive additional support for the PARKnership Program from the DEP, said Fort White Middle School Principal Keith Couey. We are appreciative for all our business partners as they assist us in continuing this impor-tant endeavor. Our students, families and community reap the benefits of this out-standing environmental program. To acquire the grant, the project needed to support outdoor environmental educa-tion on public conservation lands, field experiences connected to the springshed, integrated teacher training and participa-tion in a service learning project. The PARKnership provides all the necessary ingredients. All of these kids are going to be future citizens, and a large part of them will stay in Columbia County Fort White or Lake City, said PARKnership director Trini Johannesen. They will be the ones mak-ing the decisions about our water. Though the program has been active since 2002, recent staff changes left many new science teachers without background knowledge in the regional watershed, Johannesen said. The grant will provide assistance to train seven new staff mem-bers in watershed boundaries, current issues and water conservation through the Ichetucknee Watershed Basin Tour. The tour will be conducted by Jim Stevenson, a retired chief biologist for the Florida State Park System. In addition, Johannesen hopes to train teachers in Project WET, an educational program that teaches four core beliefs about water. They are: Water connects us all, water is for all users, water must be managed sustainably and water depends on personal responsibility and action. Finally, the grant helps to send 215 sixth-grade students to the Ichetucknee Springs State Park Education Center for an introduction to the water and its impor-tance. I know a lot of kids really dont care about the environment, said 14-year-old Jasmine Tabb. But they should because theyre going to be on the Earth for a long time. It helps to know ways you can help, instead of making things worse. Even though Jasmine is a ninth-grader, she mentors the middle school stu-dents through a program associated with PARKnership called Leak League of Environmentally Conscious Kids. Johannesen encourages the older children, like Jasmine and 14-year-old Steven OQuinn, to coach the younger students to design projects that can be prepared for the end-of-the-year Water Festival. The festival is a community-wide educational festival intended to educate families on the necessity of caring for water resources. The [sixth graders] need to know this so they can help our environment, Steven said. Not let it disappear or vanish. Last year, the program finished the year by constructing a bird habitat out-side the science classroom. The habitat includes a birdbath, birdhouses and a variety of flowers. Next to the garden, a series of raised beds wait to be tended by the PARKnership students. According to Johannesen, the beds form part of a farm-to-school project. She wants the students to grow enough food to have a salad day. When we first started, the idea was to expose the kids to the importance of not just water but the land and the air, she said. Everything works together to provide what we need to have a healthy community. Fort White sixth-gradersgo to the river every monthto learn about ecosystem.

is to first offer to pray with the client unless the cli ent objects. In that case, the CSC agent simply delivers the necessary aid, whether it be food, clothing or even money. Daly said upon arrival clients complete an entry form that gives CSC their basic information. The clients are then asked to sit with a CSC counselor who will review the data for accuracy and determine how CSC can help. Its at that point where we find out what their real request is, Daly said. Sometimes its food and sometimes its other things, so we dont know until that point what they really need. Then ... theyre offered to be prayed with. If they decline, we dont pray with them. We offer to share Jesus with them, if they say theyre not inter ested, we dont share. Daly said CSC represen tatives leave Bibles on a desk and ask clients if they would care to have one. She said if the clients dont wish to take one, they dont have to. There is no pressure of any kind on the religious end, she said. Everything is a open-handed gift if you want it. Daly said they do not make clients get to know Jesus as a requirement or condition to get aid. Were here to offer them help, support and love, she said. If theyre interested in our faith that gives us love, help and support then we share. If theyre not interested we dont share and go ahead and take care of their need. Erin Gillespie, Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services press secretary, said Tuesday what matters is whether religious participa tion is being made a condi tion of receiving aid, which CSC said it is not. The intent is that no one feel pressured, no matter what their beliefs, Gillespie said Friday. DIFFERING VIEWS However, the fact that CSC agents pray with cli ents before giving them food gives some officials pause. Bruce Ganger, execu tive director of Second Harvest North Florida, which contracts with the state to distribute USDA food to Florida Gateway Food Bank and elsewhere, said Saturday that offering to pray with clients before offering them food is in violation of USDA rules. It is inappropriate, he said. You cant use the food as a carrot to get them to participate Gillespie, the only state or federal government employee the Lake City Reporter was allowed access to concerning the matter, said Friday the issue was not that simple. There is no order listed in the USDA guidelines, she said in reference to the question of whether it is acceptable to offer to pray with a client before offer ing aid. She continued, The USDA guidelines are fairly vague. Federal regulations say organizations may not engage in inherently reli gious activities, such as worship, religious instruc tion, or proselytization, as part of the programs or services supported with direct USDA assistance. These activities must be offered separately, in time or location, from the pro grams or services support ed with direct assistance from USDA and participa tion must be voluntary. Daly said the CSC staff could change their routine, but that things work best as they are. Once the client has left the presence of the coun selor, they go into other areas of the agency to get serviced, whether its for clothing, food or whatever, she said. Theres never been a time to be quiet to pray with them after that point. RELIGIOUS IMAGERY The second point of con tention between CSC and the USDA involved reli gious symbols and imag ery. Daly said a USDA rep resentative informed CSC officials in November that they needed to remove reli gious photos and artifacts in its lobby where someone who is seeking aid would see them. Scott Elkins, manager of the Florida Gateway Food Bank, was present dur ing the conversation, but said Thursday he does not recollect the inspector tell ing CSC they needed to remove any religious pic tures or signs. I dont recall any dis cussion about the religious items being removed, he said. Elkins continued, It is not our practice to do that. There is no rule or obli gation on the part of the agency to take anything down. At no time have I ever told anyone they had to take anything down. Ive never told anybody they cant give [clients] a Bible or talk to them or counsel them. Daly disputes Elkins account. Im sorry that he (Elkins) has such a poor memory, as he was sitting in the room, there were five of us and we all heard the same thing, Daly said. In fact, if he (the inspec tor) had not said what he said, why would be have taken a different road and done something else and not taken the USDA food? The USDA food and Gateway Food Bank had already been set up and in use for this agency long before I came. It was when they came for that meeting in November and laid down different rules for us that caused us to have to take a different track. So we went to the board [of directors] with what they said to us and the board voted unani mously to eliminate both the use of their agen cies. Elkins said the local food bank serves four counties Columbia, Suwannee, Hamilton and Union and within them, 15 food agen cies. Nine are churches, the other 6 are church-affil iated. None of those agencies ever had a problem with [the rules], he said. The USDA representa tive who was present at the November meeting was not authorized to speak on the record. CONTRACT SIGNED, THEN CANCELED Daly said she originally signed the contract with Florida Gateway Food Bank, but canceled it after she says the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services inspector told her they could not pray with clients and that the religious imag ery must go. There was initially a contract with the Gateway Food Bank I signed think ing we would continue and that was before we had the meeting with the Gateway Food Bank and Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services inspector, Daly said. When we had that joint meeting and this additional information came out, with regard to the not being able to pray and the tak ing down of our religious artifacts, I asked to have that contract back because my board president was with us and said, This is a different situation than what we thought, this must go before the Board of Directors for them to make a policy decision on what we will do as an agency. That contract was turned back to me, which I tore up. As it turned out, we didnt sign any contract for the Gateway Food Bank or USDA. A PUBLIC MATTER Daly said the issue only became public with recent media coverage. We choose not to make a big deal of it, Daly said. Once the Florida Department of Agriculture drew the line in the sand with what they told us, we had a decision to make of what direction we want ed to go. The board met, made its decision and we immediately contacted those groups and churches that support us to let them know we needed their help to increase the food dona tions that maybe had been done as a food drive once or twice a year, we were now going to ask them to run continuous food drives for us to help us make up the loss of USDA food. Daly noted its been almost a year since the con tract was allowed to lapse. The story came out quite by accident because people began to ask, Why arent you getting USDA food, she said. I simply told them the story of what happened and another local newspaper got wind of it. THE NEXT MOVE Daly said she is uncer tain whether CSC will ever come to terms with USDA. We are a home mis sions ministry, Daly said. We stand for the cause of Christ. We will continue to do just that. Daly said the CSC already receives help from local churches of many denominations, which they hope will continue. At this point it would require the board to make a decision that would change their current decision, she said, noting the board next meets in October. I dont know that that will happen. It will be discussed at their next meeting, but we prob ably will continue to do exactly what were doing which is to serve the people of this community through the faith-based churches here. Daly said 30-40 percent of the Christian Service Centers food pantry pre viously came from the USDA. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 15, 2013 Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 6A Sandals WILSONS OUTFITTERS 1291 SE Baya Dr, Lake City (386) 755-7060 WilsonsOutfitters@comcast.net Sale Rack Mens Womens Childrens Tumblers 30% off Check out all our Camo!

United Way Suwannee Valley encour aged members and partners to contribute toward the organizations new Imagine Me Campaign, aimed at collecting $600,000 for over 20 local community orga nizations across Columbia, Hamilton and Suwannee counties such as North Florida Boy Scouts, American Red Cross and the Catholic Charities Bureau. The Imagine Me campaign theme encourages citizens to imagine the ben eficial impact United Way services have on families and agencies in the local com munity. The need never ends, current UWSV President John Martz began, addressing the 151-person audience of business and community leaders. What we do here at United Way is provide the agencies... the money they need to provide services to the community. You being here today is a testament to how you feel about the community and how you feel about your neighbors. General Campaign Chair Eddy Hillhouse spoke next, saying that the $600,000 goal does, indeee, sound significant. However, the amount represents a small fraction of the service provided through United Way agencies. Such services include community out reach programs, elderly care, homeless aid, pre-school services, disaster relief and emergency care response services, among others. A series of representatives from local businesses such as VyStar Credit Union, Purina Animal Nutrition and the Target Distribution spoke on their companies efforts to raise money, with the biggest announcement coming from John Warren, co-chair of the United Way PotashCorpWhite Springs campaign team. For the 2013-14 campaign, PotashCorps White Springs set a goal of $82,000, Warren said, flanked by senior PotashCorp staff. Our employees to date have pledged $82,566 which, when the company match is added, brings our total to $165,132. The Conference Center filled with applause as Warren and PotashCorpWhite Springs General Manager Terry Baker presented the check to members of the United Way. Ive been giving to the United Way since I was first employed, Baker said after the event. I see the United Way as a hub for charitable giving in the community. Former UWSV President Mike McKee said he and the United Way staff were blown away by the annual generosity of local companies. With the amount raised to date from PotashCorp-White Springs and other Pacesetter companies, McKee said, The total campaign pledges raised to date are $255,891. UWSV will hold a luncheon next month featuring more speakers to help locals imagine how families benefit from United Way services. By AMANDA WILLIAMSON firstname.lastname@example.org The Columbia County School Board will hear rec ommendations from the dis trict and Greater Truevine Missionary Baptist Church about its terminated char ter school contract during a special meeting Tuesday night at 5:30 p.m. in the School Administrative Complex auditorium. The Columbia County School District terminat ed the contract with Vine Academy of the Arts, 217 NE Kingston Lane, in July on a recommendation from School Superintendent Terry Huddleston. The school was slated to open in August. After the termination, Pastor Antonio Carlisle requested a special Administrative Hearing, which started September 10. Both Vine Academy and the School District present ed arguments to the board, acting as the Hearing Officer, on how to approach the terminated contract. Officials from Vine Academy said the school district was responsible for most of the delay associ ated with its charter school application. But the case piled up against Vine as the districts counsel pre sented 19 documents into evidence, compared to the schools two supplied docu ments. The hearing worked like a quasi-judicial pro ceeding where both sides presented their arguments to the school board. For the charter to be reinstated, the board must have a majority vote on Sept. 23.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comF riendly competi-tion has been known to gen-erate a smile among friends, but Friday at the Lake City Bowl facility, the smiles, hugs and competition were different. The adversaries on the field of competition wished their opponents well, they wish that both competed to the best of their abilities and most importantly, they wished that everyone had a good time competing. The 2013 Special Olympics Florida Columbia County Fall Classic took place Friday at Lake City Bowl with more than 100 Special Olympians participating in the events. Several other Special Olympians com-peted in the Fall Games power lifting activities at Columbia High School. John Brown, Columbia County Special Olympics director, said 104 athletes registered to participate in the events. The athletes were from five schools and CARC, he said. They had a great time. The athletes had a lot of fun, we had a lot of volunteers here to help out with the games and every-thing went off smoothly without any hitches. The buses were here on time and all of our volunteers were here and we just had a great time. From around 10:30 a.m. noon Friday, the bowl-ing lanes where busy with activities as the Special Olympians competed with ribbons, laughs and hugs being their prizes. Words of support and encouragement were shouted by volunteers who helped with the event. Its important to continue to have Special Olympics for our local ath-letes because we want to be sure we have sporting events for our population that are not as fortunate as some of the other ath-letes that are in Columbia County, Brown said. Special Olympics provides that opportunity for them. We provide sporting activi-ties through Olympic-styled events three times a year within the county and it goes on to area games and on to the state competition which is usually at Disney World. Our kids really enjoy the competition, its great camaraderie for them, they get to meet new people, make new friends and there is an educational aspect as well. Christy Robertson, Richardson Middle School chorus teacher, said 17 of her students volunteered to help with the event. I think its important for them to experience all kinds of people in life and I just think its a good expe-rience for them, she said. Robertson and her students throughout the years have volunteered for approximately 14 years. The students said volunteering made an impres-sion on them, she said. A lot of times they say they had a lot of fun or it was really neat. I really enjoy working with the kids. They gain an appreciation for kids that are different than them.7A Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2013 7A Special Olympians take to the lanes TONY BRITT/ Lake City ReporterSpecial Olympian Josh Wills (seated) gets help from Ke ndra Smith, Jurnee Luke and Hunter Williams as he prep ares to release his bowling ball while taking part in the 2013 Columbia County Special Olympic Falls Games Friday morning at Lake City Bowl.

Indians survive Tornadoes By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comSTARKE Fort White Highs football team went on the road and won a gut-check game on Friday. The Indians beat Bradford High, 37-27, in a game that was not decid-ed until late in the fourth quarter. Tavaris Williams finally sealed the deal with a 20-yard touchdown run with 3:08 left in the game. It was the fourth touchdown of the night for Williams who ran for 260 yards on 26 carries. He also scored on runs of 17, 55 and 60 yards. Opening at home and hungry for a win after los-ing big to Baker County High in week two, the Tornadoes overcame a 9-0 deficit to take a 20-16 led into intermission. Bradford quarterback Jacob Luke led the charge with three touchdown pass-es in the second quarter. Kenny Dinkins caught two for 54 and 30 yards and Chris Barron put the Tornadoes on top with a fade route from 10 yards out. Both teams stalled out on their first series of the second half. An intercep-tion by Kellen Snider got Fort White defeats Bradford County, 37-27. INDIANS continued on 2B Record-breaking win for Columbia BRENT KUYKENDALL /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Lonnie Underwood jumps over a pile of Buchholz High defenders for a touchdown in the Tigers 34-10 win over the Bobcats in Lake City on Friday. Underwood scores 5 TDsBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comIt was a record-breaking night for Columbia Highs Lonnie Underwood as the Tigers remained undefeat-ed with a 34-10 win against Buchholz High on Friday. Underwood carried the Tigers to victory with all five of their touchdowns on a 19-carry night for 146 yards. In doing so, Underwood broke a record held by run-ning coach Quinton Callum since 1996 by scoring five times on the ground. It feels great, Underwood said. I didnt even know I broke it. Callum was also proud of his back, even if it meant the record was no longer his. Records are meant to be broken, Callum said. Hes got great vision and speed. Hes still got to work on his blocking, but he has the ability to be an all-purpose back. Hes can be phenom-enal. Buchholz opened the game with the ball and picked up three first downs before Jarrod Harris recov-ered a fumble with 7:19 remaining in the first quar-ter. However, the Tigers turned it back over to the Bobcats and Buchholz took a 3-0 lead off a Daniel Nicilaus added a field goal from 27-yards away. Columbia responded quickly with a four-play drive that resulted in an eight-yard score from Underwood with 3:47 remaining in the first quar-ter. It looked like Buchholz would make a game out of it early as the Bobcats responded with eight plays of its own for an 80-yard drive capped off by Jackson Whites 17-yard pass to Quinlan Washington with 37 seconds remaining in the first quarter. Underwood then took CHS continued on 3B
By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comRichardson Middle Schools football team beat visiting Hawthorne High 54-8 on Thursday. Richardson led 14-8 at the half after Hawthorne scored with no time left on the clock and converted a two-point run. The Wolves scored on their first drive of the sec-ond half, but Hawthorne again was knocking on the door. Tyler Walker ended all that with an interception and 95-yard return for a touchdown. From there, it was a matter of how many points. Lorinzo Jelks had touchdown runs of 11, 13 and seven yards. Kaden Jones had touchdown runs of four and 17 yards. LaTorrence Jones had a 53-yard touch-down run late in the game. Nathaniel Williams, who had three touchdowns in the Wolves opening game, had that many called back against Hawthorne because of penalties. He did score on a 14-yard run. Garrett Cook was 6 of 7 kicking extra points. LaTorrence Jones had two interceptions and Jamel Jackson had one.

Toby Clements stopped an early Bradford drive with an interception at the Indians 15. Fort White turned it into a touchdown on a six-yard run by Carlous Bartee. Jabari Rivers ran in the PAT and the 8-0 lead lasted until halftime. Quarterback Dillon Brown had a two-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. The PAT run failed, but Fort White got the two points on a safety when the Tornadoes were flagged for holding in the end zone. The highlight play for the Indians came in the fourth quarter when Brown hooked up with Nicholas McClain for a 56-yard touchdown pass. The two-some also combined for the two-point conversion. W restler Ben Richards died Friday. The 20-year-old Richards was attending Darton College in Albany, Ga., on a wrestling scholarship.

Richards aunt and uncle, Frank and Cindy Singletary, have lived in Lake City since 1972. They went to Gainesville to be with the Richards family and his parents, Chuck and Debra. Mr. Singletary had brought in information about his nephew and called Friday to report his death. Hes in heaven now and with our Lord, Mr. Singletary said. Richards was a star wrestler at Hillsborough High in Tampa. He made state three years in a row and was runner-up in 2012 in the 220-pound weight class. He placed fifth the previous year.

They were throwing that double slant all night, Snider said. I had dropped one interception and my whole goal was jumping that pass and making a good play. Snider then turned around on offense and spelled Williams at running back. On fourth-and-2 he broke a dive play for 43 yards and a first-and-goal at the 6. Two plays late, Snider scored and Melton Sanders kicked the third of his five PATs to put Fort White back on top, 23-20, at 2:43 of the third quarter. Snider also had one catch for 22 yards to give Fort White a shot at the end zone on the final play of the half. He returned four kickoffs for 114 yards. Over the summer Coach (Demetric) Jackson was hinting around about using me at running back, Snider said. We practiced it all week and it is just a matter of the way he uses me. Sanders also helped cool off Luke in the second half with an interception and 18-yard return. He then caught one of his three passes and Williams followed two plays later with his 60-yard TD run for a 10-point cushion. It lasted 19 seconds as Dinkins returned the kick-off 91 yards for a touch-down to pull Bradford back to within three points. In addition to his three touch-downs, Dinkins had an interception. That man is a beast, said Williams, who was tasked with covering Dinkins much of the game. I have got to give it to him and No. 81 (Barron). Fort Whites defense did the rest. Bradfords final four plays were three incompletions and a sack for a loss of 19 yards. The thing is, and this is crazy, but as a coach you want a game like this, Jackson said. You come into a hostile environment and play a good caliber team and you see how your kids respond. Thats what tests your character and I couldnt be more proud of their effort. They fought to the end tonight. INDIANS: Beat Tornadoes 37-27 Continued From Page 1B

The Lady Tigers dusted off the Lady Indians 25-10, 25-18 and 27-25. Columbia looked to be headed toward a fourth set after trailing 24-20 in the third set, but Hollianne Dohrn had five consecutive service points to bring the Lady Tigers back and eventually win 27-25. Annie Milton led the Lady Tigers (5-1) with 10 kills and three aces. Jara Courson had seven kills and Meghan Yates had five.

He finished the drive with a touchdown from two yards-away. Underwoods third score came at the 4:27 mark remaining in the second quarter when he scam-pered in from 18-yards out.

This time, Underwood would run in from seven yards to give Columbia the 27-10 lead at the half. Columbia grounded out a 15-play, 65-yard scoring drive on its open-ing possession of the second half killing near-ly seven minutes of the game clock. Underwood finished off his day with a 12-yard touch-down run with 5:01 remaining in the third quarter. I havent had one as good as the one we have back there right now, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said. The thing I see about Lonnie is what his eyes see, his feet are able to match. Thats going to take him a long way as he continues to get better and under-stands the game. Hes already pretty special as a junior, but as things slow down and he understands more what the defense means, theres going to be openings. Hes going to be special. He can make every cut. Hes having a special, special, year. From there, it was the Columbia defense control-ling the game. The Tigers forced two turnovers with Terry Calloway and Bryan Williams both picking off passes. Williams intercep-tion ended the game and produced the Tigers third second-half shutout of the season. The Tigers will host Terry Parker High in the first of six-consecutive dis-trict games starting next week at 7:30 p.m. in Lake City.

Devonta Freeman ran nine times for 109 yards and a touchdown. James Wilder Jr. added 45 yards and a score. Karlos Williams may have been the most impres-sive of the bunch. The for-mer safety, who moved to offense after the opener, ran eight times for 110 yards and a score. His 65-yard scamper made it 31-7 early in the third quarter. Winston, who threw two TD passes in the first half, scored on a 10-yard run in the third. That was his final play of the day.Alabama 49, Texas A&M 42COLLEGE STATION, Texas AJ McCarron nearly matched Johnny Manziel with four touch-down passes and Vinnie Sunseri returned an inter-ception 73 yards for a score, sidestepping Johnny Football on the way to the end zone, as No. 1 Alabama paid back No. 6 Texas A&M with a 49-42 victory Saturday. Alabama (2-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) spotted the Aggies (2-1, 0-1) a 14-0 lead, shades of last season when A&M jumped out to a 20-0 lead in Tuscaloosa on the way to victory that all but won the Heisman for Manziel. McCarron and the Tide didnt take as long to respond this time, ripping off the next 35 points. Manziel was his spectacular self, throwing for a career-high 464 yards and five TDs. But Alabamas best defense was its offense. The Tide gained 568 yards and kept Manziel on the bench with a couple of long drives.

From staff reports F lorida Gateway College has been desig nated a Military Friendly School and listed among the top 20 percent of colleges, uni versities and trade schools doing the most to recruit and retain military stu dents and their families. The 2014 designation marks the third straight year Florida Gateway College was included on the list with 14 other Florida College System institutions that also received the designation. The annual rankings were released Tuesday by Victory Media. Weve definitely seen an increase in interest from our veteran com munity in recent years, said Troy Roberts, Florida Gateway College public information coordina tor. Much of this has to do with the fact that our country has withdrawn thousands of troops from the Middle East and those soldiers are returning stateside. This increased interest also coincides directly with our Military Friendly School designa tion. Inclusion on the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Florida Gateway Colleges com mitment to providing a supportive environment for military students, said Sean Collins, Vice President at Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran. The need for education is grow ing and our mission is to provide the military com munity with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools.

Send it to us with Foolish Trivia on the top and youll be entered into a drawing for a nifty prize! but its risky, because if the market turns against you, you either sell for a loss plus interest costs or hold on until the market picks up, paying interest all the while. If youre borrowing on margin and paying 8 percent interest, you bet-ter be pretty confident your stocks will appreciate more than 8 percent, and theres never any guarantee of that. (Margin rates these days are in the 7 percent to 9 percent neighbor-hood, unless youre quite wealthy.) When your margined securities fall below a certain level, youll receive a margin call, requiring an infusion of additional cash. If you cant raise the cash, the broker-age will sell some of your holdings to generate the needed funds. This can sting, sometimes resulting in short-term capital gains taxed at high rates. Margin can reduce your investing flexibility, too. If youve bor-rowed money to invest in a stock and it falls sharply, you may end up forced to sell when youd rather wait it out. Only experienced investors should use margin, and many have gotten rich without it, too. K_\Dfkc\p=ffcKXb\ Game OnIn late July, Rhode Island-based Hasbro (NYSE: HAS) reported lack-luster second-quarter earnings, with revenue down 6 percent and earnings down 12 percent. Dismissing the stock would be premature, though, as Hasbro has a lot to offer. Even in the lackluster quarter, revenue in its Games category gained 19 percent while its Girls category surged 43 percent. (Meanwhile, Mattels Barbie line has been post-ing successive sales declines.) The Boys category dropped 43 percent, but may get some relief via the renewal (through 2020) of Hasbros contract to license thousands of Disney-owned Marvel characters (such as Spider-Man, the Avengers and Iron Man), as well as the Star Wars brand. Hasbro is aiming to keep up with the times, having recently spent $112 million for 70 percent of the mobile game company Backflip Studios. It has also licensed many of its games (such as Monopoly and Clue) to video game-maker Electronic Arts. Hasbro is also a partner in The Hub, a TV network. The stock recently offered a 3.6 percent dividend yield, with its payout having doubled over the past five years. The company has recently upped its stock-buyback plans by $500 million, which will reward shareholders by spreading its profits over fewer shares. Are you game for Hasbro?

That has been my big-gest loss, and one Im not going to forget. T.H., online The Fool Responds: DryShips has had many believers over the years and still does. Its stock has been roughly halved, on average, in each of the past five years. The lesson it offers is to look closely at many factors when evaluating a company. Its revenue has been grow-ing in recent years, but its bottom line has been in the red. Its share count has been rising, too, diluting the value of older shares. Its fleet is not as young and fuel-efficient as those of some of its peers. The companys debt load has more than quadrupled over the past few years, which doesnt bode well, given its negative free cash flow. But its also worth keeping in mind that the dry bulk shipping business is a cyclical one, and thus business is likely to pick up in coming years. Still, investors can likely find less risky and more compelling stocks.Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, AUGUST 15-21, 2013 3C3CBiz Whats new in kids helmets this seasonBy KIM COOKAssociated PressK ids who balk at the idea of wearing head protection for outdoor activities might find it harder these days to argue that helmets arent cool. From dry-erase helmets to ones shaped like ani-mals and bugs to others in bright colors, many of todays helmets are designed to make kids want to wear them long after the bike is parked or the snowboard stowed. Well lay out 10 different character helmets at a skate park and let 20 kids try them on and play with them. Were able to see immediately which designs resonate with them, says Brad Blankinship, a spokesman at Los Angeles-based C-Preme, which makes helmets and other skate and bike gear. Some of whats new:C-Premes helmet line Raskullz has a wide range of styles shaped or painted like dinos, sharks, ladybugs and pussycats complete with appendages like fins, antennae and ears. There are lightning bolts, zebra stripes and a Mohawk trim. A new toddler Miniz version of the lineup was added this spring, and in May the Raskullz line adds additional 3-D animal attachments like raccoon tails and feathers. www.raskullz.com Helmet Zoo makes colorful, elasticized fleece helmet covers on themes like sea, farm and wood-land creatures, and fan-tasy characters. Pandas, tigers, skunks, snakes, pink poodles, devils and a generic version of those popular ill-tempered birds are all available, as are multi-legged spiders and a pink fairy princess with tiara and veil. The covers will fit any style of helmet, and are cleanable. www.helmetzoo.com Low-key-cool Burton has the RED helmet line that includes kids Avid Grom, a cross-sport helmet for snow and pavement. No wild graphics, but hip col-ors like green, white, red, black and orange branded with a logo. www.altrec.com Smith Optics makes the Gage snow helmet in matte black or white, or more vivid hues like cyan, bright green and violet. Theyre embellished with an understated, stylized graphic on one side. Also from Smith, a combo of Cosmos Jr. helmet with Galaxy goggles; a magnet and slide-release buckle keep the two pieces together. The Zoom Jr. has a soft, fuzzy lining, and all have lots of head vents, since kids heads get sweaty quickly. www.smithoptics.com Swedish company POC makes a helmet named Pocito Light. In-mold tech-nology means the outer hard shell is thinner, and theres expanded polysty-rene foam all through the inner layer to disperse impact. A fluorescent orange would stand out on a snowy hill, and there are options for different weather conditions, too: Neck and ear pads may be removed for warmer-weather skiing and snow-boarding. www.xsportspro-tective.com Biking and scootering kids might like the imagi-native range of helmets from Scotts Valley, Calif.-based Giro, with names like Rascal, Rodeo, Flume and Slingshot. Graphics such as red flames and silver skulls might appeal to older children, while cartoon airplanes, pigs, firefighters and bunnies could attract younger or goofier kids. www.giro.com If your creative kid would just like to jazz up an existing helmet, check out the funky line of helmet accessories from Fauhaux, started by two former ToysRUs execu-tives and moms, Jocelyn Fine and Kelly Dineen. The embellishments are made of lightweight foam and attach with Velcro. Dreadlox come in black, green, blue or multi-colored; spiky Punkrox come in pink or red. www.fohawx.com Anna Luther of Cincinnati, who blogs about life as a mom of three at www.mylifean-dkids.com got out the colored duct tape when her daughters Barbie hel-met lost its charm but still fit fine. Enlisting the help of both her daughter and son, we had a ball design-ing the helmets, she says. Her daughter opted for pink and purple hearts. For her son, they created a blue and green helmet cover. With a project this simple and cheap, we can re-design them every sum-mer, Luther says. Also for the DIY crowd, Wipeout has helmet and dry-erase marker kits. White, black, pink and green helmets can be decorated with kids own designs or the stencils pro-vided. Those include rock-ets, peace signs, clouds and stars. www.iwipeout.com Finally, some tips from safety experts: The Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute says the best way to get your child to wear a helmet is to wear one yourself. Start the helmet rule early, be consistent, point out sports pros wearing helmets, and teach kids that hav-ing a bike is really owning ones first vehicle and responsibility comes with the privilege. At www.safekids.org, find an easy test for fitting a helmet: Once its on, ask the child to look up. They should be able to see the bottom rim. Straps should form a V under the ears and be slightly tight. When a child opens her mouth wide, the helmet should hug her head. There should be no rocking of the helmet at any time. Photos by ASSOCIATED PRESSABOVE, BELOW: Bike helmets now come in a variety of cool colors, sha pes and configurations.

By AMANDA WILLIAMSON email@example.com Before Columbia High School journalism teacher Tabatha McMahon teach es her freshman students to write, she teaches them the ethics behind her craft. She begins the school year with basic terms used in the field masthead, column, byline and more. But after theyve learned common terminology, the Journalism I students must learn the consequences of what they write. They have to under stand that what they post on Facebook or what they tweet about can have impli cations not just in terms of what theyre doing right now, but also in the future when theyre looking at jobs, McMahon said. You just cant write anything you want. Throughout the class, her students learn the mechanics of a good lede, as well as how to work with DSLR cameras, com pile newsletters and design layouts. She pushes the students to learn through hands-on, activities-based lessons. Though she has a jschool degree from the University of Central Florida, Tabatha hasnt worked in the trenches since she interned at the Orlando Sentinel. Originally, I thought I wanted to be a journalist, she said. I like figuring things out. When youre a journalist, and youre presented with something, you got to figure it out. Its not easy. Its not just, Oh, theres all the information.

They give a great over view of the area you are visiting. Ive ridden them in a lot of cities: New York, Washington, DC, Chicago, Barcelona, Marseilles and Rome were all double deck er buses and San Diego and St. Augustine have trol leys, but Ive been on both versions in Chicago. In addition to the driver, some have a tour guidea live person giving you bits of information and shar ing the citys history as HOHO a great way to tour Story ideas?

DEAR ABBY: I am a divorced woman with three children ages 24, 22 and 16. I live on my own with my girls. I have been dating a man, Reed, for three years. We are very much in love and have been working to blend our families. (He has two chil-dren.) We have decided to move in together at the end of October. My lease will be up then, and Reed has sold his condo. We will be moving into the house he shared with the ex-wife while they were married. Everything is fine except for one thing: His ex-wife has not yet found a new home to move into. With little time to go, hes now suggesting that we move in and live with his ex-wife until she finds a new place. Reed believes this will be very short-term -a month or so. The house is big enough for all of us, so thats not an issue. His ex-wife and I are friendly, so thats not an issue either. But Im not comfortable with this plan. Am I being irrational? Should I just act like a grown-up and make the move, or should I refuse? -SECOND THOUGHTS IN MASSACHUSETTS DEAR SECOND THOUGHTS: You are nei-ther immature nor irratio-nal. You are thinking ahead -and that is what grown-ups do. What if Reeds ex CANT find a place that suits her in a month or so? What if it takes six months or even a year? If I were you, Id talk to my landlord and ask if you can work out a month-to-month extension of your lease. If thats agreeable, Reed can move in with YOU for the short term. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: My mother is in her mid-50s. Shes a wonderful woman, but she makes us late for every-thing. My husband and children, my siblings and I often attend family func-tions and other events as a group. When we go to pick up Mom, she announces she has just a few chores she wants to do first, and they take forever. We are not a few minutes late; were significantly late, and sometimes miss events altogether. These have included wed-dings and funerals. We have stopped inviting Mom to some events, but she makes us feel guilty if we dont take her to a family event. We have tried helping her do her chores the day before and lied about starting times. Nothing works, and Mom finds more to do. We have asked her friends about this behavior. They say she never pulls these stunts when they pick her up for things. When we talk to Mom about it, she insists she needs to get things done ahead of time. Her house isnt messy, nor is it known for being overly tidy. Shes in good mental and physical health. Were fresh out of ideas on how to deal with this. Help! -LATE FOR A VERY IMPORTANT DATE DEAR LATE: I would handle it this way: Tell Mama you will pick her up at a certain time and that you will wait no longer than five minutes for her. If shes not out by then, you will leave. And then DO it. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): A challenge will get your heart beating and your mind racing. The out-come will be an interesting lesson that will help you make the alterations neces-sary to bring you greater satisfaction. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Getting together with people who share inter-ests or concerns will turn out favorably.

Look for ways to improve your home and stay under bud-get. You are capable of doing far more than you realize and for much less, if you do the research to follow through with your plans. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): You deserve a break. Get out and have fun with friends or family. Take time to do a little self-nurturing. A new outfit or something that makes you feel relaxed or more comfortable in your envi-ronment will be well worth the effort. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Personal problems will affect your health and emotional well-being. Visit a destination that brings you peace. Think matters through before making a change or decision that alters the way you live. Put your needs first. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Expand your interests and take part in something you want to contribute to. Work to bring about changes in your commu-nity that will improve your life. Love is in the stars. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Dont let uncertainty take over, especially if its concerning your personal life. Waffling will only lead to bigger problems. Face any dilemma head-on to ensure that there is no time for matters to escalate or spin out of control. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Educational pursuits will pique your interest and lead to new pos-sibilities. Dont worry if someone is threatened by what you are doing; even-tually, it will be clear that you have made the right choice. Romance will help any relationship that is fal-tering. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You can lend a helping hand, but dont let anyone take advantage of you. Put more into your surroundings and fixing up your place. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Youll have some nifty ideas that draw the interest of someone you have worked or played with in the past. A money deal can be drawn up that you can work on from home during your off hours. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Expect your emo-tions to take over when dealing with people trying to control your life. Use your intelligence to over-come any control issues that arise. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Combine the things you enjoy doing most with the people you love or respect and have a get-together that is geared toward collaboration. ++++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Fix5 Some powder9 Hurdles for future (17VDQG*3V $QWLTXHG SKRWRJUDSKFRORU ,GRPHQHRKHURLQH5LYHULQWRZKLFKWKH *UHDW0LDPLIORZV -DSDQHVHFRSLHU FRPSDQ\ 22 Some title holders6HDUFKIRUDFUDGOH UREELQJZRPDQLQ1HZ
Youve got to go dig it up. For her, the research process is fun. She likes taking a problem and try-ing to uncover several ways to tackle it espe-cially since she tends to get bored easily. Once a prob-lem has been solved or a lesson learned, McMahon finds something else to figure out. Journalism, I thought, would be the perfect fit, she said. What I found out was that I enjoyed the process, but I didnt enjoy the hours. Instead she pursued a masters degree in Integrating Technology into Curriculum, and then earned her second masters in Education Leadership after start-ing her career at CHS. Before moving to Lake City, McMahon worked in public relations and com-munications for the state, helping to implement an AmeriCorps program. But it was her husbands job that brought the fam-ily to Lake City. Sean McMahon dreamed of teaching at a college. So when an opportunity opened at Florida Gateway College, they made the move. Her first job at Columbia High School was a part-time gig as a tutor. She worked as a reading coach for a period of time until the journalism position opened. School Superintendent Terry Huddleston, who at the time was principal of CHS, called McMahon while she was on vacation at SeaWorld to offer her the newly opened teach-ing slot. Shes been there since the 2006-07 school year. Its the perfect fit for me because its organized chaos, she said. Catering to her audience, the students, McMahon keeps up with current trends in the digi-tal world. Her students can turn in homework assign-ments using the latest viral phone application: Vine. Vine, owned by Twitter, enables users to create and post short video clips. You have to use venues that are going to work with them, she said, adding that this year the yearbook got its first social media editor. You have to keep current with the trends, and shift with your mar-ket. In addition to teaching journalism, McMahon coordinates the yearbook staff and coaches womens tennis. Every morning, she gets up before 5 a.m. to run before going to work. How does she man-age to do everything? McMahon attributes her success, despite the busy schedule, to her supportive family and to her Franklin Planner. P roper harvest timing is essen-tial for optimal nutrition, freshness and flavor of your home-grown vegetables. The time of day at which produce is picked is nearly as impor-tant as crop maturity when it comes to the quality of your harvest. And what you do or dont do with your vegetables imme-diately after picking can make or break a success-ful gardening season. After working diligently to grow that bountiful gar-den, try to be flexible at harvest time when timing is so important. When possible, harvest mature vegetables in the cooler morning hours and process them quickly, preferably within a couple hours. Freezing is a great way to preserve most home-grown vegetables that are at peak flavor and texture. Although freezing does not kill all microorganisms that are present, it does slow down their growth. If you cant process your fresh harvest immediately, immerse the vegetables in a bath of cold water and keep them in the refrigerator. Wash the vegetables thoroughly in cold water and sort according to size. When blanching vegetables before freez-ing, smaller sizes will take less time than larger veg-etables. Blanching is the process of quickly scalding vegetables in boiling water to slow or stop the enzyme activity that reduces food quality. To learn how to blanch and freeze your fresh garden vegetables, read the UF/IFAS docu-ment Preserving Food: Freezing Vegetables (http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/fy719 ) The following guidelines may help in harvest-ing your vegetables at the correct stage of maturity, when the flavor, nutritional content and freshness are at their peak. These include some of the veg-etables that you may be harvesting. Snap Beans Beans are ready to pick if they snap easily when bent in half. Seeds in the pod should be small and imma-ture. Lima Beans Harvest when pods first start to bulge with enlarged seeds. Pods are still green, not yellowed. Broccoli Cut dark green, compact heads while tiny buds are shut tight, before any yellow flowers appear. Small side shoots develop later and provide ongoing harvest. Cabbage Harvest when the heads feel hard and solid Sweet Corn Silks turn brown and dry out as ears mature. Check for matu-rity by opening top of ear and pressing kernels with thumbnail to release liquid. If liquid is milky instead of clear, the ear is ready. Eggplant The fruits should be 4 to 5 inches in diameter and glossy, purplish black. The fruit is getting too old if the color has become dull or bronzed. Remove by cutting so a short piece of stem remains on the fruit. Okra Harvest young, tender pods that are 2 to 3 inches long. Pick often because over-mature pods get too tough to eat. Southern Peas Pick pods that have fully devel-oped seeds and the pods are just turning yellow. If seeds are for dry use, wait until the pods are dry and brittle. you roll through the various streets and sights. Then some of have resorted to pre-recorded information and you have to listen through earphones plugged in next to your seat. This was the case in the foreign countries Ive visited because they offered many different languages. I much prefer the tour guide, because theyll add some personality to the tour and it makes it much more fun and interesting. Most recently, in Chicago, I rode the double decker on top. The tour guide here was actually from the Jacksonville area and had a lot of personality. Not only did he tell you about the area, but gave interesting factoids you might otherwise not have known. For example, in the Oak Street shopping district of Chicago, you must have an appointment to shop in these stores and only after your credit has been checked and bank account balances have been verified. Its super upscale. And, the Fourth Presbyterian Church located on the Magnificent Mile, where the chapel scenes were filmed for My Best Friends Wedding, has very high fees for members ($6,000) and non-mem-bers ($15,000) who wish to be married there. He knew the fee structure because he was recently engaged and his fianc inquired about it. You wouldnt have learned that if you were listening to a prerecorded session. I also prefer to ride on the top in the open air. Ive done this in the freezing cold and in the rain. If you can get the front seats you have a window blocking some of the elements. No matter, its bet-ter than sitting inside down below where its difficult to see. Whats great is the hop on hop off feature. Inevitably there are stops that may not be so interesting to you and youd rather stay on the bus and ride on. Then there are must do stops where you can get off the bus, check out the sites and simply get back on when you are ready. Once, in New York, when our second day was free, we simply used the bus as a mode of transportation to get from one place to the next because it was raining and we didnt want walk. It was cheaper than a taxi too. I plan to take advantage of the HOHO bus on some upcoming trips to cities new to me: Boston, Portland, ME and Halifax and St. John, CANADA. I cant wait to 4D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2013 6DLIFE Tara Trespalacios Lee Trawick November 23, 2013 ~ Alexis Carswell Brian Hartsfield November 16, 2013 156 N.
