Paige will open for Jerrod Niemann From staff reports After wowing the judges on the X-Factor, area singer Rion Paige will take the stage with one of country musics hottest rising stars. Paige will serve as the opening act for the Jerrod Niemann con cert on Sept. 27 at Florida Gateway Colleges Howard Conference Center. The show, sponsored by Saint Leo University and Lifeguard Ambulance Services, is the second in the 2013-14 FGC Entertainment series. Paige, who opened for Lee Brice during the 2012-13 season, earned national attention thanks to her recent performance on the hit TV show, the XFactor. Her ren dition of Carrie Underwoods Blown Away received high marks from the judges, including Simon Cowell. The YouTube video of her performance has been played nearly 4 million times in the past week. Paige will open for one of country musics recent stars, whose hits include Lover, Lover and What Do You Want? While Niemann is a country musician at heart, he brings in a wide variety of genres rock, honky-tonk, Dixieland jazz, and reggae to accentuate his unique take on music, which breaks the barriers of country music like many art ists have done in years past. Time is always good to music, Niemann said in a recent tele phone interview. As time goes Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter Despite tough times, VFW stays true to mission By AMANDA WILLIAMSON firstname.lastname@example.org A deck of red and blue playing cards sat on the table in front of a gathering of combat veterans at the local Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2206, but the conversation drifted to old war stories and the current role of the VFW in their lives. Japs torpedoed the first ship he was on, and he ended up in the water, said Post Commander Roger Formosa with a goodhearted laugh as his 92-year-old friend and World War II vet, Gene Pope, joined the group at the table. The kamikazes got the second ship he was on. He ended up in the water. He just likes swimming. Through the local Post, veterans find a place to bond, meet other veterans and relax away from the hustle of Lake City. Annual events, such as the upcoming barbecue chicken din ner on Saturday and the Veterans Day Parade in November, keep Post members and the general public entertained year-round. The 501(c) non-profit also helps veterans and return ing combat vets with Veterans Administration claims for educa tion, housing and health issues by providing a Post-sponsored attorney. According to Formosa, the VA isnt always forthcoming with assistance to the returning vets unless its forced the main role of the VFW as watchdog for American troops. Jim Collins, a lifetime member of VFW Post 2206, said he relied on the organization to help him after he retired from law enforce ment. During the Vietnam War, he served in the 173rd airborne infantry brigade where he was injured. He initially received only 30 percent of his disability funds. Once I retired from law enforcement, thats when I went to get VFW for help to get the other 70 percent, Collins said. It took about a year to cut through the red tape to get it. The VFW was influential in help ing me to obtain 100 percent of my service-connected disability from Vietnam. But the economic downturn has taken a toll on Post 2206.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS AROUND FLORIDA Hiccup Girl on trial for murder CLEARWATER A Florida woman who appeared on several national television pro-grams as a teen because of her uncontrollable hiccupping went on trial on a murder charge on Tuesday. Prosecutors and attorneys for Jennifer Mee began selecting a jury in a Pinellas County court-room. Judge Nancy Moate Ley told potential jurors that the trial would prob-ably wrap up by the end of the week. Mee, who is 22, suffered from prolonged hiccups of up to 50 a minute in 2007. Videos of her hiccuping gained her national attention, as did her attempts to quell the problem. She tried home remedies and consulted medical specialists, a hypnotist and an acupunc-turist, until the hiccups finally stopped on their own. She appeared on sev-eral TV shows and while on the Today show, was hugged by fellow guest and country music star Keith Urban.Cities economic output grows ORLANDO The economic output in Floridas three largest metro areas grew by more than 3 per-cent last year. The Bureau of Economic Analysis said Tuesday that the gross domestic product grew by 3.5 percent in South Florida, 3.1 percent in Tampa and 3 percent in Orlando. South Florida is made up of Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. According to the federal bureau, the lead-ing driver of economic output in South Florida was trade. Trade was the leader in Tampa, too, but leisure and hospital-ity was the top driver of economic output in Orlando. Nationally, metro areas had average growth in gross domestic product of 2.5 percent.Attorney for Gore and Chiles dies TALLAHASSEE Dexter Douglass, 83, one of the lead attorneys who represented Vice President Al Gore during the chaotic presidential election recount of 2000, has died. Lacy Douglass said her father, who had been bat-tling bladder cancer, died early Tuesday morning at his home in Tallahassee. Douglass was deeply involved in Florida politics and policy. He was general counsel for former Gov. Lawton Chiles but left that job in order to guide a constitu-tional revision panel that made several sweeping changes to state govern-ment in 1998. Officials ID 2 in boating accident GOLDEN GATE ESTATES Wildlife officials have identified the two people who were killed in a boating accident in Collier County.

Wildlife officials said they have received three recent reports of two ring-tailed lemurs on Sanibel, an island off southwest Florida. After the first two reports, officials thought the witnesses had mis-taken two skinny raccoons for lemurs. Rockwell in crime drama Single Shot NEW YORK I n the crime drama thriller A Single Shot, Sam Rockwell stars as John Moon, a man who gets caught up in a tense cat-and-mouse struggle with a pack of hardened criminals after mis-takenly shooting a woman and then discovering a box of cash by her body. Rockwell describes Moon as a down-on-his-luck anti-hero who is really trying to get reunited with his family. Moon is a character familiar to Rockwell, who is known for taking on dark, off-kilter characters such as the crazed prisoner Wild Bill Wharton in The Green Mile or the unemployed actor and dognapper Billy Bickle in Seven Psychopaths. While he takes on other kinds of roles, like the affable water park manager Owen in The Way Way Back or a serious journalist in Frost/Nixon, Rockwell acknowl-edges that hes attracted to dark stuff. I love to go back to this kind of stuff and shake it up a little bit, he said in a recent interview to promote A Single Shot, which opens in limited release Friday in New York theaters. He said some of his offbeat characters seem to be a kind of cousin and that he returns to these roles the way some actors revisit Hamlet or Stanley Kowalski in an effort to perfect an archetype.Kendrick Lamar is the lead Soul Train nominee NEW YORK Kendrick Lamar is the top nominee for the Soul Train Awards.

Collins was just one of five retired mili tary men sitting around the card table Tuesday, but his story rang true to many of them. Most of the men in the room required disability help from the govern ment, Formosa added. Members of all military branches at the Post work together to provide assistance to the Wounded Warrior program, the Unmet Needs program and various care packages shipped overseas to men and women currently in active war zones. Wounded Warriors provides help to sol diers returning home with injuries, while Unmet Needs assists families of activeduty military. But due to the economy and a dwin dling membership, the Post struggles to provide for the men and women who need it the most. Well always have enough money to keep the doors open, Formosa said. We got to help the veterans. Thats what this is all about. Future post commander John Courtney agrees, adding that the veterans are the main reason the non-profit operates. Currently, the VFW acquires funds through donations and various fund raising endeavors. At the beginning of September, Melody Church in Live Oak held a car show with the intention of donating proceeds to Post 2206. The VFW Riders will end the month with its barbecue chicken dinner from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. on September 21 at the Post. Following dinner, the band Kickstart per forms for an evening of dancing. All events organized by the Post are open to the public, including Bingo Tuesday and Sunday Karaoke. Nearly all the events are family friendly, Formosa said. The organization provides activities, such as board games, for the children away from the bar area. Though the cookouts and game days keep Post members active in the commu nity, the hardest part for its veterans tend to be the funerals. We do the honor guard, fire the guns and fold the flag, Formosa said. What we do is all the stuff that the veterans and their families need. Current membership dues are $33 for active-duty military and combat veterans. For those currently still in the military, proof of an overseas deployment is nec essary. Family members and relatives can join the Posts auxiliary groups for men or women to become involved. The groups help with fundraisers by cooking, raising funds or organizing the event. We have found it necessary to seek donations from the community to meet the demands of our organization, Formosa said in a letter to the public. We can use all the help we can get. The cost of every thing hasnt gone down, its gone up. Donations may be made by check pay able to the VFW Post 2206, and all contri butions are tax-exempt. For more infor mation, contact the post at 386-752-5001. on, music changes, but after 30, 40 years, it really becomes part of American culture. While the technol ogy moves on, sound gets trapped in time, and thats why we all accept Alabama and Ronnie Milsap as coun try artists at the time, they were considered popdriven, but the truth is, you still love the music because the melodies are so great and stand the test of time. Niemann got his start as a songwriter, but eventually found his way to the stage to become one of country musics rising stars, along side buddy Lee Brice, who performed during the 201213 FGC Entertainment series. While he loves the stage, Niemann said song writing is still dear to his heart. Before I had the oppor tunity to get out on the road and perform, I got my foot in the door by writ ing songs, and thats like having two completely dif ferent hobbies, Niemann said. Youve got to have songs to sing, obviously, but being in the studio producing, writing songs, finding songs I love, its a different hobby and I get a different feeling from all of them. Its tough to say if I have a preference Ill just say that songwriting is where my heart is, but per forming is where my liver is. Both are vital. Tickets are still available for Niemanns show, and can be purchased online at fgcentertainment.com or by calling (386) 7544340. Tickets are $15 for students, staff, and faculty, $25 for general admission and $40 for VIP seats.

NIEMANN: Rion Paige will open show Continued From Page 1A VFW: Lake City Post keeps on serving veterans despite economic downturn Continued From Page 1A By AMANDA WILLIAMSON email@example.com The Columbia County School Board voted to move forward with termination of Greater Truevine Missionary Baptist Churchs charter school contract Tuesday after hearing evidence from both the School District and the church at a previous meeting. A final recommendation, as well as exceptions from Truevine, will be reviewed by the board on September 24. Vine Academy of the Arts, the proposed charter, was expected to open in August. However, on a recommendation from School Superintendent Terry Huddleston, the board terminat ed the contract in July. According to the districts argument pre sented on September 10, the school experienced repeated defi ciencies and missed deadlines. However, Truevine attributed the delays to the district. Board member Keith Hudson made a motion to follow the dis tricts recommendation for imme diate termination, and board member Stephanie Finnell sec onded. The motion passed unani mously, although board member Dana Brady was not present. The board acted as the hear ing officer for the quasi-judicial Administrative Hearing request ed by Truevine as a result of the boards initial termination. After almost two years of prepa ration time, both of Vines witness es acknowledged theres still very critical areas that are not formed under the contract, Hudson said. Vine doesnt have a building to house the students. Vine cannot provide property insurance for a building that it doesnt have. They dont have certified teach ers employed and ready to teach. Vines list of enrolled students is over a year old. I dont see the district as being required to set up a charter school for Vine to run. That is Vines job. In addition to Hudsons com ments, the district presented as findings of fact evidence that Vine did not prove sufficient funds to cover the initial start-up expense of the charter school, as well as the fact that it allocated $38,000 for faculty. The charter schools enrollment roster pro jected a range of students from kindergarten to 8th grade, which would require five core certifica tions and certifications in offered elective courses. As of the date of the hearing, Vine Academy of the Arts had no employees finger printed, and only three of seven board members fingerprinted. In effect, the district cited Truevine in non-compliance with the charter contract for failing to meet facility readiness and prop erty insurance requirements, generally accepted standards of fiscal management, personnel requirements, workers compen sation insurance requirements, Florida Sunshine Law require ments and requirements for non sectarian operations. However, Truevines recom mended order suggested the board reinstate the charter con tract with a one-year extension. Truevine would begin business in the 2014-15 school year, as long as all charter requirements were met. These deficiencies do not rise to the level of good cause for immediate termination of the Charter Contract, the organiza tion detailed in its recommenda tion order. According the Pastor Antonio Carlisle at the Sept. 10 meet ing, the Columbia County School District requested the three revi sions that hindered board approv al of the application, informed Vines governing board they didnt have to be fingerprinted immediately and failed to provide a requested Student Progression Plan. Also, church officials stated it should have been allowed 90 days to correct noted deficien cies, such as missing fingerprints and establishing a building on site for the school. Carlisle said he will be drafting exceptions to Tuesdays approved motion. If the board continues forward with their decision next week, Truevine can choose to make an appeal to the state or drop the case to reapply for a charter contract at a later date. Theres nothing stopping us from doing both, Carlisle said, adding that he intended to take matters to the District Court of Appeals if needed. Board closer to termination of charter school I dont see the district as being required to set up a charter school for Vine to run, said board member Keith Hudson. That is Vines job.
A lthough I try to follow the old dictum If you cant say something good about someone, dont say anything, I sometimes (maybe even often) fail to live up to it. Im about to say something uncomplimentary about our attorney general who, for reasons of convenience, got an execution postponed. Her reason for doing so, as I understand, was to accommodate a fundraiser she was holding on the original date of the execution. She couldnt be at both, so she postponed the more important event. This example of misplaced priorities raises a ques-tion in my mind: If her judgment is so flawed in this area, how flawed is it in other areas? Do we need an attorney general with such abomi-nable judgment? I began working on the case which she postponed back in 1988 when I was called to the scene of the crime and observed the recov-ery of the victims body and the preservation of the evidence. It was not pleasant. Two years later, I presented the case to a jury and asked them to recommend the death sentence and asked a judge to impose it. I assisted in any way I could with another prosecution which resulted in another death penalty for the same offender. I saw firsthand the anguish of two families whose daughters had been brutally murdered. Those families will never have closure until the execution is carried out, and our state govern-ment owes it to them to see that the execution is carried out as expedi-tiously as possible. Any politician who, because of considerations of political advan-tage, causes a delay in that process deserves censure. That politician deserves a double dose of censure if, as is the case here, that politician is familiar with the death penalty process and knows firsthand the anguish caused to victims families when the process is delayed. The death penalty which has been delayed is the result of one of the best, most professional law enforcement efforts I have ever been involved in. Officers from multiple agencies in Kentucky, Tennessee, Florida, and the Federal level showed a level of competence, cooperation, and professionalism unequaled in my 30+ years of expe-rience in the criminal justice sys-tem. Multiple prosecutors offices in two states (Tennessee and Florida) showed a remarkably high level of cooperation and courtesy in work-ing together to obtain two death penalties and to see to it that they were upheld. Now we have (hope-fully) come to the end of a much-delayed 25-year process, and it gets delayed one more time because someone wants to attend a political fundraiser. I dont think I will be contributing to her campaign. E ven a cursory examination of history sug-gests that what often is first perceived as good news may ultimately prove to be some-thing else altogether. A recent example is the exhilaration over Egypts Arab Spring, which is now understood to have been a cruel illusion. The agreement reached last week by Secretary of State John Kerry and Russias foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, to cooperate on imposing a meaningful resolu-tion to the chemical weapons crisis in Syria has been well-received by many (although not by the Syrian rebels, for obvious reasons, or to certain United States senators who seem bound and determined to see a military strike to impress Bashar al-Assad). But, as welcome as the agreement may be to most of us, it is complicated, if not clouded, not just by those who oppose it but by several significant events of his-tory. For example, in 1918, a worried world breathed a collective sigh of relief as the war to end war concluded after four awful years. Decades later, the peace treaty signed at Versailles in the aftermath of that war con-tinues, from time to time, to have a negative impact on international relations, especially in the Middle East, where the victors established new national boundaries without regard to local culture and custom.... In the late 1930s, there was cautious optimism when Britains prime minister, Neville Chamberlain, return-ing to London from a meeting with Hitler, proudly (and famously) proclaimed peace in our time. But the German leader didnt cooperate, and World War II quickly followed. In 1945, there was a similar sense of relief when Germany, Italy and Japan surrendered to end the war Hitler (and later Japan) had begun. But historians can-not overlook the fact that however justified the victory, it came only after the dropping of two atomic bombs, signaling the advent of the nuclear era. ... [T]hen the Western democracies found themselves trapped in a Cold War with the Soviet Union that led to dangerously tense confrontations, particularly over the communist nations decision to send missiles to Fidel Castro that the Cuban dictator could use to attack the United States.... In 1989, the Soviet Union collapsed, ending the Cold War and leading to new dreams of world peace. But the dreams didnt last long. So now, while Egypt, Libya, Nigeria and other parts of Africa are torn by bitter feuds, many (if not all) of them tribal or religious in nature, and as Iraq implodes, the most attention is being paid to Syria and there has been applause for Russias surprise role in seeking to find a seemingly impossible solution to the problem posed by Syrias arsenal of chemical weapons.... Assad will be a fairly confident guy today, and if hes sincere about the plan, theres potentially a lot o f political gain for him, said Salman Shaikh, director of the Brookings Doha Center. Hes certainly likely to fe el victorious; there is no credible threat of the use of force on the table anymore, which is the thing he fears the most. The Kerry-Lavrov meeting generated optimism and relief, but, as history tells us, weve been there before. W atch out, because here comes big government on a big mission to grab your wallet at gas pumps, empty it to no avail except to make everyones life worse, and then applaud itself for saving the world. All this is revealed, among other places, in a New York Times front-page story that tries terribly hard to make Wall Street look like the mis-creant, even though the storys own detailed evidence makes the govern-ments root culpability perfectly clear. The story is about ethanol, but if you look beyond the words, it is about government of, by and for special interests, pretensions of the power-ful and how the rest of us pay. That means you and me, brother, you and me, sister. But lets get back to specifics, to ethanol. A corn product you can mix with gasoline, it was supposedly going to help make us energy independent as it also helped save us from global warming. From that rationale grew subsidies, tariffs and mandates while a study showed anything meaningful would require ruination of great gobs of land. Even Al Gore, whose concern about global warming knows few hand-wringing equals, arrived at a pooh-poohing disregard for ethanol.... Politicians prize it, however, because, they say, its renewable and a possible gateway to other, better biofuels. What they do not say is that processors contribute money and more to their campaigns and corn farmers contribute votes to their electoral longevity. Why, in 2008, presidential candidate Barack Obama was surrounded by advisers with ties to the ethanol industry, a little checking reveals. As a U.S. senator, a news report tells us, he tarnished his image some by taking subsidized rides on airplanes owned by a major ethanol producer. The Times story takes us back eight years during the George W. Bush presidency, when we got a program that would give compliance credits to energy companies mixing ethanol with gasoline in accordance with a governmental formula. The program allowed these companies to sell their credits to other companies that were not fully complying, let-ting them off the hook of extremely expensive, possibly ruinous penalties. The credits, it was thought, would be costly enough to motivate them to mix more ethanol with gasoline. Well, says the Times, the program allowed Wall Street to act as a middle-man between those selling and buy-ing the credits and, first thing you knew, wily financiers were figuring out ways to control prices. Credits went up twentyfold in a six-month period this year, meaning, among other things, that gas pump prices will zoom, too.... One of the governments biggest mistakes was linking its ethanol requirements with estimates of large increases in gasoline consumption when, in fact, consumption has decreased. Compliance by energy companies would leave them sending out ethanol amounts in gasoline that gas stations cannot accommodate without major renovations. That means energy companies cannot blend as much ethanol into gasoline as the government requires even as they must also pay steep compliance credit prices that are passed on to the consumer. Ethanol is a bad joke. Even before this current threat, it accounted for a big hunk of gas prices while solving nothing to speak of. One of the best answers we have to cut energy costs, boost the economy and decrease greenhouse gas emissions is natu-ral gas, which has already worked wonders, thanks to the free market and hydraulic fracturing technology. But in addition to the war on coal, Obamas choice to head the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in Ron Binz has made it sound as if there will also be an eventual war on this resource.

will soon issue an exec utive order on schools, possibly dealing with the contentious issue of whether the state will go along with a multi-state test aimed at measuring new, national standards for learning. The vote from the board comes roughly six weeks after the resignation of for mer Commissioner Tony Bennett in the wake of a controversy over school grades in Indiana when Bennett was the superin tendent of public instruc tion in that state. Stewart was appointed unanimous ly after a brief discussion. Sometimes, timing is everything, and the time seems to be right now for Pam, said board member Barbara Feingold. Board members also underscored the need for stability at the agency; Stewart will be the fourth non-interim commission er to serve under Gov. Rick Scott since he took office in 2011. The state is also looking for a new chancellor for the univer sity system. I appreciate the support of the board and I can assure you I am cognizant of the times we are in and the criti cal nature of the work, Stewart said in a state ment released after the vote. Ive spent 32 years in public education and I remain fully committed to the students of Florida. This is the time to look forward and get this criti cal work right for our stu dents. Reminders of that work were all around Tuesday as the debate continued about the Common Core standards, a set of educa tion benchmarks agreed to by the overwhelming majority of states. Legislative leaders have already called for the state to develop its own tests based on the standards -ditching months of work with other states on tests they all could use -and at least one Republican lawmaker is agitating to slow down or even over turn the standards them selves. With that in mind, the Foundation for Floridas Future met with report ers during the education boards meeting to pro mote the standards. The organization, founded by former Gov. Jeb Bush, has been an influential voice supporting com mon core. Executive Director Patricia Levesque said the organization was speaking up now in part because of where the state stands in putting the standards in place. This year is when every student at every grade level is going to be exposed to common core, she said. Rep. Erik Fresen, a Miami Republican who chairs the House Education Appropriations Subcommittee, joined the call to show his support. The board also approved a $16.8 billion budget request for the year that begins July 1. That is down $100 million from the current budget, though agency officials said that is because of a drop in federal grants.

I spoke to our external auditor, County Manager Dale Williams said, referring to Richard Powell, the man behind the original CYSA investigative report. Hes writing me a letter explaining the difficulties doing [a forensic audit]. Williams explained that he will care fully examine the recommendations Powell makes in his response and act accordingly. Everyone is using the word forensic audit, Williams said. I think, probably, a full forensic audit of that account is not going to occur simply because the commis sion does not have the authority to collect the necessary records. Many of the records in question were, according to former CYSA president Scott Everett, miraculously destroyed by a com bination of storm damage and vandalism. However, Williams continued, There are things they can do that may stop short of that which may be worthwhile to investi gate. Those are the things the auditor will identify in his letter. The audit was not discussed during Tuesday evenings Sports Advisory Council meeting. There is also no indication the matter will addressed by Thursdays county commission meeting. Newly-elected CYSA president Joy Skinner also updated the SAC on the youth soccer organizations revised bylaws. I did get together a committee of some board members and we did make a change, she said. The revised bylaws will increase the minimum needed for a quorum, or the minimum number of board members required for any action to be taken, from two to five. However, fellow SAC members felt the original issues over CYSAs lack of free and open elections went unaddressed. While anyone can nominate themselves for a board position, CYSA board members are the only individuals who can vote dur ing elections. Babe Ruth Baseball Association President Tad Cervantes asked Skinner why the CYSA did not allow votes from all individu als involved. Is it a control thing, Cervantes asked after a silent pause from Skinner. No, its not a control thing, she said. We just think that the ones who are actu ally at the facility, who are running things all the time, should be the ones to vote. According to Dale Williams and County Recreation Director Mario Coppock, county commissioners are pushing for standard ized bylaws that all youth recreation organi zations will abide by. I understand thats the [CYSAs] right, Williams said, referring to their exclusion ary elections. But I feel obligated to men tion that the county commission is going to standardize bylaws. I do think its important from the overall county perspective that elections of officers be handled in a uniform way, which will very much be an open elec tion. So I dont want anyone to be surprised when we come back and call for [standard ized open elections]. The SAC will be first to review the stan dardization proposal before it is sent to county commission for approval. The SAC will meet again on Tuesday, Oct. 15 in the Southside Recreation Complex Coachs Building.

Dear Pharmacist, I take a dozen antibiotics per year due to frequent infections. What else can I take? Dont worry, I take probiotics, what I want is a natural antibiotic. --M.W., Santa Barbara, California Answer: For millions of years, honeybees have protected themselves with a sticky substance called propolis to coat and clean their hives. Call it bee glue this compound has exceptional medicinal benefits just like other tree saps such as Frankincense and Myrrh. Propolis has over 200 active ingredients includ ing cinnamic Acid deriva tives which cause cancer cells inside you to kill themselves (even leuke mia). It has antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic, antifungal and antimicrobial effects. Im stocking up now before cough and cold season rolls in. The Brazilian species, as in Brazilian green propolis has higher amounts of these healing compounds, sold at health food stores and online. When com bined with vitamin D, probiotics, Matcha tea, Maitake mushrooms and prescribed low-dose naltrexone (LDN about 4.5mg at night), I am confident you will ramp up your immune system. Talk to your doctor about these options. Now, Id like to focus on how propolis can rapidly clear the body of dangerous pathogens, improve blood sugar and cholesterol, all the while reducing pain-causing cytokines. Artepillin C, a com pound in propolis shuts down NFKB, a metabolic pathway in your body that churns inflammatory compounds that make you hurt. So propolis is an antiinflammatory. It supports healthy blood sugar levels, as well as blood lipids (like cho lesterol). Ive always been somewhat afraid of these critters, but after studying this, lets hear it for the bees! As an antibiotic, propolis has been shown to kill H. pylori is implicated in gas tric ulcers and colitis; also MRSA, as in the poten tially fatal bug Methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus. It acts on these pathogens without destroy ing your probiotic flora. Id still take probiotics, but its good to know propolis doesnt harm your gut like conventional antibiotics. That means no diarrhea, cramping and bloating like you get from antibiotics. As an anti-fungal, propo lis has been shown to fight Candida strains of all sorts including C. albicans, C. glabrata and C. krusei. That last one is danger ous, and it occurs during production of chocolate and wine. A study com pared natural propolis to the drug Nystatin, and they were equally effec tive. Propolis boosts your own macrophages to go and fight harder. One of the most difficult to treat viruses known to man is influenza, another one is herpes, and of course theres the infa mous small pox. Would it shock you at this point if I told you various stud ies have shown antiviral capacity by propolis? Two separate studies have shown it work against HPV, or human papilloma virus, implicated in cervi cal cancer. Whenever I see hype about injecting little kids with vaccines for HPV, I wonder why propolis doesnt even get honorable mention? For enhanced immune ben efits, youll see high qual ity brands combine the Brazilian green propolis with probiotics, astaxan thin or other immuneboosting antioxidants. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2013 Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 6A 146 SW ORTH O PAEDIC CO URT | LAKE C ITY 386.755.9215 WWW .T O IHEA L TH.C O M Tristan A.

Suzy Cohen email@example.com DEAR PHARMACIST Blind baseball helps players cope DAVID GOLDMAN Associated Press ATLANTA In the game of blind baseball, players use their sense of sound to make up for their lack of sight. They play the game known as Beep base ball with an oversized soft ball that beeps and bases that buzz. The National Beep Baseball Association was founded in 1975. Teams have been formed nation wide and compete annually in a World Series. In east Atlanta, a team called the Atlanta Eclipse plays at a local park. Players wear blindfolds to ensure fairness since each person has a varying degree of blindness. The pitcher and the catcher are sighted and play on the same team as the batter. On a hit, the batter runs toward the buzz of either the first or third base, which is decided by an official. There is no second base. A run is scored if the batter tags the base before the fielder can pick up the ball; otherwise the batter is out. In this adapted ver sion of Americas pastime, cheering is not permitted until the play is over. For the players, the game is about much more than physical activity; It helps them cope with the challenges of being blind. Here are the stories of three players in Atlanta and surrounding areas whose lives have been improved by what happens on the baseball diamond.

Columbia still received its rings that night, but the Tigers are still deserving an honor. That honor will finally come during homecoming week of the Columbia High football season against Orange Park High at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 4 in Lake City. Im happy for the girls, Columbia head coach Jimmy Williams said. Theyre very deserving of the great accomplishment. Theyre great people both on and off the field. Theyre always smiling and will do anything they can to make someones day better. Principal Todd Widergren presented the rings to the girls in a presentation at the schools cafeteria during the delay against Gainesville, but this is a chance for the community to see the girls in person. Williams said the initial ring display brought a cou-ple of tears. Most of them smiled, but some teared up, he said. It was pretty amazing, but I wish we could have done it in front of everyone. The Lady Tigers will get their chance. SHELLI SHOUP /Special to the ReporterColumbia Highs softball team received their state champi onship rings during the rain delay against Gainesville High.

The Lady Tigers came out with a 25-15, 24-26, 25-22 and 25-13 in four sets. Columbia came out firing in the first set and opened up a 16-9 lead before edg-ing out the Lady Wildcats 25-15. The Lady Tigers looked to be cruising to a three-set win midway through the second set with a 12-8 lead, but Baker County battled back to tie it at 15-15. The two teams would exchange points the rest of the way before the Lady Wildcats eventually took the second set 26-24. Columbia regained form in the third set and finished with a 25-22 win. In the fourth set, the Lady Tigers breezed their way through with a 25-13 win to end any chances of an upset. It was a great win for our seniors, Columbia head coach Rebecca Golden said. They have been great lead-ers of our volleyball team and we look forward to having them for the rest of this season. They have set the standard for what it means to play volleyball at Columbia High School. On Senior Night, it was a senior who stood out the most. Annie Milton led all players with 15 kills in the match. She was dominant at the net and also came away with four blocks. But it wasnt a total effort from the seniors as the underclassmen also played a part. Jara Courson had six kills and Hanna Baker laid down 25 assists, five aces and four kills. Columbia (6-1, 1-0 district) plays host to Gainesville High at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday in a dis-trict contest. Lady Tigers take four sets to dust off Lady Cats.

DEAR ABBY: Im a 14-year-old girl who just started high school. I started to notice boys when I was in middle school, and Id like to start dating soon. The problem is Ive never had a close friend who was a boy, and the idea isnt natural to me. How can I ask a boy out if I dont even grasp the con-cept of being friends with one? Im frustrated over this, especially because I really like one particular guy. The only advice I have been given is, Get over your fear and just TALK to him. This isnt very helpful to me. I want to know how to get over my fear! Abby, your thoughts would be appreci-ated. -CANT FIND THE NERVE IN OHIO DEAR CANT FIND THE NERVE: Ill gladly share some thoughts. The first is I hope you realize how many girls and guys your age feel EXACTLY the same way you do. Social skills dont come naturally to everyone -but they can be learned. And like any learned skill, they take practice. The surest cure for shyness -which is the fear you are experiencing -is to forget about yourself and concentrate on the other person. Smile and introduce yourself if the guy doesnt know you. If you share a class with him or know an activity hes involved in, ask a question about it. Hes not good at sports? Not musical? Ask him about a class assign-ment. You dont have to be brilliant or witty. Try lead-ing off with a friendly remark or a compliment. (Nice shirt, cellphone, etc.) I know very few peo-ple who dont appreciate a compliment. Overcoming shyness takes practice, so dont go after the boy you really like at first. Make a point of smiling and say-ing hello to everyone. Its friendly, its welcoming. Keep in mind that the majority of people have the same insecurities you do. Many of them will respond positively because they appreciate being noticed. Thats how you make friends of both genders. I have a booklet that offers even more sug-gestions. The title is How to Be Popular, and it con-tains hints for polishing social skills for people of all ages. It can be ordered by sending your name and address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds) to Dear Abby Popularity Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. Remember, you dont have to be the prettiest or smartest girl in school. But you CAN be one of the nicest. Show an interest in others. Be honest but always tactful. Cultivate your own interests so you will have something to talk about with others. If there are clubs at your school, join the ones that interest you. Its another way of making friends of both sexes. Most young people go out in groups these days. So, if you and some friends plan to do some-thing (and after you have been friendly and let the young man you like notice you), smile and ask if hed like to come along. If hes shy, its a way of making HIM feel less self-con-scious, too. Good luck! DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Dont deviate from your plan, or you will indi-cate that you are inconsis-tent. You can rely more on your allies than you realize. Keep your life simple and moving forward at a steady pace. A challenge will keep you on your toes. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Work with your peers, and you will gain popular-ity and advancement. A day trip or conference will add to the information you require to reach your goals, and the relationship you develop will enhance your future prospects. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Make changes at home that will benefit you and help you do something that will benefit your com-munity or a cause you care about. The time spent working to benefit others will change your life and the attitude others have towards you. ++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Make personal changes that make you feel confident and able to compete with anyone who challenges you. Love is on the rise, and taking the first step to ensure that you spend time with some-one you think is special will pay off. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Be ready to act fast if faced with an aggressive reaction from someone you encounter. Keep your distance from anyone or anything that might pose a problem for you. Keep a lookout for anyone trying to take advantage of you. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23Sept. 22): Dont give in to emotional meddling when everything hinges on reaching your goals. You will get your way if you stand your ground. Changes within a relation-ship are likely, but dont worry -whatever unfolds will be to your benefit. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): People will gravitate toward your peaceful nature. Focus on whatever makes you feel good about the way you look and the things you do. Dont give in to peer pressure, and be sure to practice mod-eration in all that you do. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You can make things happen. Turn on your charm or relentlessly pur-sue whatever goal you set. Show passion and determi-nation, and you will impress someone you love to have by your side. Make positive changes to your domestic situation. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Refrain from embellishing a situation, or you will be questioned and probably hurt your reputa-tion. Emotional matters are likely to leave you in an awkward position, and you will have to be quick if you want to avoid a costly problem. ++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Voice your opinions and put your professional plans into motion. You can attract interest in what you are doing as well as drum up support and respect for the way you handle person-al, financial and professional deals. Love is highlighted. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Dont make physical alterations or get involved in a lifestyle that can lead to poor associations or the end of a partnership with someone you need in your life. Use your head when it comes to legal, financial or medical matters. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): List your concerns and discuss your inten-tions, and you will get worthwhile suggestions that will benefit you when it comes to contracts or agreements that influence your income. A relation-ship can be altered and a promise made. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

Vols seek change of fortune against FloridaBy STEVE MEGARGEEAssociated PRessKNOXVILLE, Tenn. Florida defensive tackle Dominique Easley says he sometimes sings along to Rocky Top while hear-ing it over and over again whenever the Gators face Tennessee. Something gets so annoying, you got to make the best out of it, Easley said. Lately, thats about the only way Tennessee has been able to bother Florida. Florida has beaten Tennessee eight consecu-tive times, which repre-sents the Gators longest winning streak in the 42-game history of this series. The 19th-ranked Gators try to continue their recent mastery of this rivalry Saturday at The Swamp. Tennessee (2-1, 0-0 Southeastern Conference) hasnt defeated Florida (11, 0-0) since a 30-28 vic-tory at Neyland Stadium in 2004. The Vols also have lost their last 17 games against ranked opponents and are 1-23 versus Top 25 teams since 2008. Our players understand the rivalry, what is at stake, Tennessee coach Butch Jones said. I think they understand what has gone on before them. The only thing we can control is our preparation and how we play on Saturday. of characters are invading Columbias turf. Ed White could be this years Ridgeview, Allen said. Weve seen tape of them and theyre pretty good. Every team is going to give us their best shot. Were going to take the approach that records dont matter and weve got to play each week to determine the playoffs. Allen said the Tigers are prepared going into the district having opened up against some of the best competition from around the state. For sure the first three games against Trinity Christian, Gainesville and Lincoln prepared us to be in that mindset, Allen said. They may not have had district implications, but there were implications. Gainesville is a team we hadnt beaten in two years. Lincoln is a program that we wanted to beat to put us back on the map. They prepared us to be mentally ready. We have to go exe-cute and play well in hostile situations. Each game from here until the end of season will be hostile situations for Columbia as it tries to defend its district crown. Were prepared for these big games, and have to go out and execute by playing the way we practice, Allen said.
