By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comB efore she could bite into a slab of ribs at the Smokin Pig BBQ Fest, Sarah Ripple had to wait for her husband the barbecue connoisseur to arrive at the Columbia County Fairgrounds. The Smokin Pig lasted Friday and Saturday, featuring a wide array of competition barbecue teams from across the Southeast. The event was a World Qualifier and a Jack Daniels championship qualifier. Guest tasted samples of ribs, chicken and pork from local favorites like the Budmeisters cook team and Fenced-In BBQ. Anything barbecue, my husband will tear it up, Ripple said, speaking of her husband David. Last year when we came, we looked at every barbecue menu and the prices. We even smelled it. The husband takes his barbe-cue very seriously. While waiting for David By STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreporter.comCounty Safety Manager David Kraus told county commissioners that the Combined Communications Center will still be able to handle city fire department dispatch services Oct. 1 despite mixed messages from city officials. However, City Manager Wendell Johnson says that the citys intentions were made clear through documentation and correspondence throughout the year. As of today, the county and city are participants in an interlocal agreement whereby the county will dispatch Lake City fire protection services through their Combined Communications Center and respond automatically to city fire emer-gencies with county resources. On June 28, County Manager Dale Williams sent a letter to Johnson saying the county plans to terminate the interlo-cal agreement effective Oct. 1 in response to the requests of Johnson and LCFD Fire Chief Frank Armijo. The city then set in motion plans to dispatch city fire services from their own Public Safety Building, the same location from which the city currently dispatches LCPD officers. The countys understanding was that the city would handle its own fire dis-patch services beginning Oct. 1. However, county officials are unclear if that will in fact happen.

DISPATCH continued on 3A A smokin good time Joblessrate ondecline Unemployment in county falls to 6.6%;state rate drops too. By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comUnemployment in Columbia County fell for the first time in three months in August, showing a four-tenths decrease in the local jobless rate. According to information released Friday by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Columbia Countys unemployment rate for August was 6.6 percent. In July the figure was 7.0 percent. Floridas unemployment rate in August fell a tenth to 7.0 percent, while the nations jobless rate was 7.3 percent. Local officials said the decrease in local jobless numbers is based on people returning to work at school and other seasonal factors. Our seasonally adjusted employment (due to the school employment, tourism, and agricul-ture) has leveled out as all of our schools were back in session dur-ing the month of August and the tourist season saw its close (for the most part) on Labor Day, bringing our current unemployment rate down to 6.6 percent this month from 7.0 percent in July of 2013, said Denise Wynne, Florida Crown Workforce Board Lead Employer Services Representative. Wynne said there is an excellent chance the local unemployment rate will continue to decrease as new job opportunities become available in Columbia County. With several new employers opening their doors in Columbia County during the month of September, including Michaels and CiCis Pizza, we do expect to see a decrease in our local unem-ployment numbers, she said. We certainly hope that trend contin-ues, and as we are heading into the holiday shopping season when merchants traditionally hire their seasonal staff, we at Florida Crown Workforce Board expect to see this trend continue into December.

DAYTONA BEACH Secured inside a room you need a U.S. passport to enter is a modern arcade of war machines. It looks like a gamers paradise: A comfortable tan leather captains chair sits behind four computer mon itors, an airplane joystick with a red fire button, a keyboard and throttle con trol. The games here have great implications. Across the world, a $20 million Gray Eagle drone armed with four Hellfire missiles, ready to make a sortie into hostile territory is taking commands from a worksta tion like this one. A gradu ate from this room on the campus of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach could be in that other room in as little as six months with a masters degree in piloting drones, his hand on the joystick, making $150,000 a year. Welcome to the new basic training, where the skills to fight the War of Tomorrow are taught in private class rooms today. Embry-Riddle this fall became the first in the country to offer post graduate education in this field. Were trying to prepare our students so theyre ready to operate at the highest levels, said Dan Macchiarella, department chair of aeronautical sci ences at Embry-Riddle. But as with so many things that begin with a military purpose, these unmanned vehicles are coming in all shapes and sizes from full-sized planes to mini helicopters less than 2 feet across to play a role in the civilian world. School sanitized as dozens fall ill WESTON Cleaning crews are at work at a South Florida elementary school where dozens of students have fallen ill. WFOR-TV reports cleanup crews are working with the health department to sanitize Manatee Bay Elementary. Students at the school in Weston have reported symptoms including vomit ing, diarrhea and fever. The principal sent a let ter to parents urging them to keep any sick kids home and encourage their chil dren to wash their hands frequently. Parents told the station between 200 and 300 kids had gotten sick and some were going to the school to pick their children up. Amnesty day for exotic pets CORAL SPRINGS Instead of releasing exotic pets into the wild, owners can surrender their nonna tive animals at an event in Broward County. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is holding the Exotic Pet Amnesty Day on Saturday in Coral Springs. Pet owners can drop off their exotic rep tiles, amphibians, birds, fish, mammals and inver tebrates at the event free of charge. Domestic pets such as cats and dogs are not accepted. Penalties for not hav ing the proper license to have the exotic animal will also be waived. It is illegal to release any animal not native to Florida.

Urban luxury for next summer from Versace MILAN Donatella Versace mixes street wear with sophisticated styles for her new summer col lection, dubbing the flashy result urban luxury. Tough harness tops are paired with demure flared skirts, denim jackets are worn over a delicate floral sheath, and a chiffon dress is held together by fetching metal hooks. When you talk about luxury everybody thinks of evening gowns, but its also about basic items like a pair of jeans, a shirt or a T-shirt, the designer said ahead of Friday nights show in the courtyard of the Versace palazzo in downtown Milan. On hand to take in the new look was teenage idol Selena Gomez, a U.S. pop singer and actress best known for her role in the TV series Wizards of Waverly Place. Donatella also puts a lot of effort in the materials. She continues the techno research started by her late brother Gianni who was the first Italian designer to use chain metal, now one of the labels trademarks.

ROBERT BRIDGES /Lake City Reporter Truck fire This semi tractor-trailer caught fire on East Duval Street just west of Main Boulevard Thursday. No one was hurt. We smelled [smoke] in the building, said Joyce Williams, who works at N&W Cleaners nearby. Thats when I went in and called 911. Williams said the truck driver attempted to control the blaze with a small fire extinguisher and when that didnt work, tried using bottled water. Lake City Fire Department first responders were on scene quickly and put the fire out. The cause of the fire wasnt clear.
or another, Kraus said. Thats why we made it clear to the board were going to be prepared either way. The last correspon-dance we had is that [Sept. 4] letter from the mayor to [county commission chair-man] Steven Bailey saying they want to leave things the way they are. On Sept. 4, Mayor Stephen Witt sent a letter on behalf of the city coun-cil detailing what course of action they plan to take Oct.1. It is the councils position that there should be no imminent changes to city/county public safety dispatch or fire protection service relationships at the present time, Witt said in his letter. This viewpoint is not only logical, but cer-tainly the most reliable path to the short term safety interests of both Columbia County and Lake City resi-dents. Included with the letter was a six-page posi-tion statement explaining the citys existing areas of contention with the county in terms of combined dis-patch efforts.CITY GRIEVANCESCommon motifs in the position statement included concerns over fair repre-sentation of all public safe-ty participants in combined dispatch efforts, business management practices, financial details and the centers goals and objec-tives. Such sentiment dates back to a March 19 let-ter Johnson sent to Kraus explaining that, It does not appear favorable for the city to plan for continued partic-ipation with the Columbia County CCC [combined communications center]. In that letter Johnson stated, Stakeholder col-laboration, the governance model and SOPs [standard operating procedures] were among our principal con-cerns concerns which simply fell on deaf ears. LCFD Fire Chief Frank Armijo sent another letter to Columbia County Fire Rescue Chief David Boozer in which he accused county fire stations of, [Picking and choosing] the single alarm calls that they feel that they want to respond to. Prior to all of this, the city and the county had an automatic aid agreement, Director of the Combined Communication Center Tom Brazil said during an interview Friday. The county covered certain city addresses on the west side of I-75. Now, on Oct. 1, it will be city fire. The city also covered parts of Five Points for the county. That automatic aid is ending Oct. 1.MIXED MESSAGESBeyond that, little is clear, says Kraus. This is where we get the mixed messages, Kraus said. Their words say one thing, but what their staff and people are telling us is something different. An email sent Tuesday from Lake Citys IT and Communications Director Zack Moss contained a response to sheriffs deputy Billy Hall, who asked when city fire would be switching to their own CAD [com-puter assisted dispatch] system. This is in preparation for October 1st, Moss said. We should be ready by the end of the week next week to run this and move over. We will be in contact when we are ready to do this. Kraus also said Chief Armijo stopped by earlier last week to give the dis-patch center a new ring down phone number so the county could bounce calls to the citys dispatch center. [Armijo and Moss] said theyre ready, Kraus said. They came over last week and gave us a new number to roll over calls to. But Mayor Witts call for no imminent changes to the City/County pub-lic safety dispatch or fire protection service relation-ships at the present time left Kraus in bureaucratic limbo. We dont know what theyre going to do come Oct. 1, Kraus said. I have no idea. According to Witts letter to county commissioners, the city felt there should be no imminent changes due to several projects in the works, including the countys ISO-inspired upgrades and the replace-ment of the citys Florida Highway Patrol tower on US Highway 90. Were in the middle of a transition process for the Lake City Fire Department to handle their own dis-patch with an Oct. 1 goal, Johnson said Friday in an attempt to clarify the situ-ation. Kraus and Brazil said the Combined Communications Center will be prepared for either outcome. We want to make it real clear so everyone under-stands, Kraus said. We, the county, will never do anything to endanger the lives of any citizen within Columbia County, which is why we came up with a contingency plan. If for some reason theyre not ready, you cant just ignore the call. If we cant roll it to the city, well continue to simultaneously dispatch city and county [fire ser-vices].ANI/ALI, PSAPAccording to the minutes of an Aug. 8 meeting between city/county public safety and 911 staff, the city offered to not make any changes to fire dispatch on two conditions: 1) The backup PSAP [Public Safety Answering Point] needs to be moved to the City Public Safety Building; 2) ANI/ALI [Automated Number Identifier/Automated Location Identifier] is provided to the City. ANI/ALI is a computer system that allows public safety personnel in the field to see the caller identity, location and details pertain-ing to any emergency call. We believed they wanted [the backup PSAP] so they could get ANI/ALI, Kraus said. When the call comes up on a screen, it gives you all the data on the call. Right now their police department does not receive that information. Currently, only county officials have access to the system because they oper-ate the primary PSAP, as mandated by the Florida Legislature. The city referred to that legislation in a letter to Dale Williams, saying that State of Florida 9-1-1 guidelines mandate the county 9-1-1 coordinator [the county] ensure all stakeholders are involved in the develop-ment of countywide 9-1-1 plans. In this instance, that does not appear to have occurred. The city originally wanted the backup PSAP to be located in their Public Safety Building, where LCPD is dispatched from currently. However, because it was cheaper, faster and easier, according to Kraus, the backup PSAP was installed in the Columbia County Detention Facility where a communications tower capable of effectively com-municating between the CCC and the backup PSAP was already in place. Johnson said that before the backup PSAP was moved to CCFD, the coun-ty manager communicated in an [Oct. 2010] email to me ... that when the city/county have resolved their differences, all still maintain the backup PSAP should/will be placed at the citys Public Safety Building. He also decried the backup PSAP for being a cold operating site, meaning there was no one staffing it on a regular basis. In response to Johnsons concerns, Williams wrote on June 4, I found your letter to be insightful; how-ever, I do not agree with many of your comments. Regardless, I regret that a true combined communication center was not achieved. Brazil explained that 9-1-1 staff was capable of operating the backup PSAP station through the use of microwave transmissions, meaning they wouldnt nec-essarily have to staff the backup PSAP at all. We explained to them that because the way the system is set up, Brazil said, Unless we physically lost this building, we can bring all the information and run all the equipment at the backup using microwaves and never have to leave this building. We can lose the console in this room to run our CAD, ANI/ALI, 9-1-1severything can be run from here running on the equipment at the backup. We dont physically have to be out there and physically put bodies in seats unless we physically lost this build-ing. Kraus said Columbia Countys setup is not unusual. This is the type of backup 99 percent of Florida has. Alachua, Marion, everybody has one, Kraus said. We worked with Alachua to assist us in designing this. Kraus and Brazil both claim that problems hold-ing back the implementa-tion of a truly combined dispatch center were politi-cal, not technical. The county has the ability and resources to pro-vide combined communica-tion. Period, Kraus said. Were always open if the city would like to come to the table and negotiate. Boozer also commented that the 9-1-1 staff has a communications meeting every Tuesday. However, according to him, city offi-cials never show up. Regardless of what direction county and city offi-cials take and despite ter-mination of the automatic aid agreement, Boozer said public safety will continue to be his primary concern. I emphasize to my guys that if theres a need, well respond, Boozer said. County and city lines dont matter. Were tired of games. Its time for business.

Instead, he asked for slippers, robes and shirts to donate to the local nursing homes. He wanted his friends to bring toy trucks, baby dolls, princess tiaras and action fig-ures to give to the children at Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center. Last year, Skyler raised enough presents through his own birthday party to give to 90 people at the Avalon Healthcare and Rehab Nursing Home and the childrens divi-sion at the medical center. As soon as I got outside, I told my parents I wanted to do it again next year, Skyler said. I want to get more people to say, Hey, I want to do this too. Already Skyler has recruited his church, Parkview Baptist, and several of his friends to either contribute time or money to the cause. At Valentines Day, they dis-tributed candy to two local nursing homes. He wants to raise enough gifts to be able to donate to both for his birthday this year. Though school has kept Skyler busy, he tries to visit the nursing home when he can. He said many of the residents at Avalon do not have anyone visit them. He recently met a man at the nursing home who has eight children, but none of them come. These are the men and woman Skyler wants to help. Many of the people Skyler visits struggle to get basic items, such as shirts and socks. Im just proud of him, said Chris Colley, Skylers dad. Hes a good kid.

M y daughter, a high-school senior, just told me to turn down the music because she is studying. Really.The music is from the 1984 Go-Gos album, Talk Show. The track? Head Over Heels. You see, I just dug into my vinylLP collection for the first time in about two decades. From the mid-90s on, as LPs became so unhip, the collection -built mostly in my teens -was stored away in my home in Virginia. It made the trek to the Chicago suburbs in 2004, where it just sat gathering dust. Somehow I never bothered to con-nect the collection with a turntable I had in the attic. Well, upon my move to a new home with a new husband, I thought: Now what? What do I do with almost 150 LPs that came to me through the record-of-the-month club, or special gifts, or were care-fully bought with baby-sitting and birthday money? A prized collection that traveled with me through junior high and high school, to college, and beyond? I finally posed the question on Facebook, looking for input from friends of my generation there. That same daughter, by the way, seeing the question on Facebook, asked: So, Mom. How does it work? Does every one of those things have just one song or what? Really.I looked for suggestions of what to do with my collection because it is priceless to me, yet seemingly useless, all at once. But as I really sifted through it for the first time in many years, handling those albums one by one, I realized something new that makes the collection even more special to me: Every album tells a story. Theres the soundtrack to the remake of the movie A Star is Born. I was 13 when this came out, and I remember playing the soundtrack countless, countless times and having to convince my father that half-naked people on the cover (Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson) were not reflec-tive of moral decay. Of course, that case was harder to make with Rod Stewart and Tonights the Night (Gonna Be Alright), which came out about the same time. That one my dad just shut off when he heard it. Then there are the albums Help! and A Hard Days Night. When I was in junior high and my parents were heading to England, I asked them to bring me real Beatles albums from real England. They did. Priceless. Ahh, I remember REO Speedwagon and You Can Tune a Piano, But You Cant Tuna Fish. Before Google, I needed the jacket for the words to Time For Me To Fly so I could write them out, in longhand, in a breakup letter to my high-school boyfriend. Theres also the Chicago X album with the hit song, If You Leave Me Now. In the wake of that breakup, I literally called WKQX radio in Chicago so many times to request the song that the call screener eventually would just ask, Is this Betsy? Um, yeah.I still have You Had to Be There, a collection by Jimmy Buffett, which I won while in high school by being the right-numbered caller to my good friends at WKQX. (In retrospect, maybe they just wanted to get me off If You Leave Me Now.) After breaking up with my college boyfriend from Kentucky -yes, theres a pattern -I played New Orleans Ladies by the little-known Louisianas LeRoux, a group he had introduced me to, so many times that the girls on my dorm floor liter-ally staged an intervention to make me stop. Yep, I still have the album, hard to find even at the time. Fleetwood Mac, The Police, The Doobie Brothers, Earth Wind & Fire, James Taylor, Gordon Lightfoot (featured with a lit ciga-rette, no less, on the cover of his album Sundown), Jefferson Starship, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen, Boz Scaggs, Styx, Genesis. Even England Dan & John Ford Coley. The list goes on and on. The 70s and 80s live.And they will live, in my new living room, connected at last with that turntable. There I can give them a spin, and my kids can tell me to keep it down -just like my parents used to. So thanks, Facebook friends, for suggesting that my LP collection be allowed to live again. And yes, darling daughter. Each album plays far more than just one track. In fact, Ill tell you something I didnt know when I was your age: They also play memories, and pictures, and histories. You and your friends may be proud of your iTunes collec-tions -and, in a sense, those iTunes libraries are more valuable. But Im convinced that downloading something with a few keystrokes cant match what I, and so many people of my generation, built with our prized album collections: The stories of a lifetime. N early a year ago Christian Service Center, a local faith-based charity, cut ties with the United States Department of Agriculture over what it saw as a matter of religious principle.Based on information revealed in two recent stories in this newspaper, however, it is clear this conflict could have been easily resolved without compromise of Christian beliefs. Religious principles were not at stake here. This was a conflict borne of poor commu-nication, as well as custom and habit. Two issues drove the conflict.First, CSC says they were told that in order to keep receiving government food, they would have to remove from their premises any reference to their faith. USDA flatly denies this. Whatever CSC may or may not have been told, there is no requirement that faith-based charities remove references to Jesus, God or the power of prayer from their premises. And no other faith-based agency in the area reports having been so instructed. This is a conflict that stemmed from poor communication, not differences in political or religious views. Were CSC forced to choose between government handouts and profession of their faith, we would cer-tainly join their voices in strong protest. Second, there was conflict between USDA and CSC over the order in which events occur once a client enters the premises seeking help. While USDA rules are, in the words of a spokeswoman, fairly vague, our research revealed that, in order to qualify for federal help, faith-based agencies must offer aid before asking clients to engage in reli-gious activities such as prayer. Thats not how CSC does it.If praying first were a matter of conscience for CSC, we would not question it. It is not the place of any newspaper to offer comment on anyones principles of faith. However, that just isnt the case here.When asked if they would be willing to provide aid, then offer religious counseling afterward which is also the example Jesus set in the New Testament CSC Executive Director Kay Daly seemed to sug-gest the current routine was a matter of custom and habit not faith. After clients are processed and given aid, theres never been a time to be quiet to pray with them, she said. We find that a remarkable admission. Surely CSC could have altered its routine if it meant filling more empty bellies. The food that didnt go to CSC wasnt lost. According to USDA, every bit of it went to other agencies in Florida Gateway Food Banks four-county coverage area. In addition, CSC says local churches and others have multiplied their efforts to make up the deficit at that agency. All well and good. Still, the need here remains far greater than available resources. The CSC board of directors should have ended this costly impasse long ago, and been willing to change the agencys timeworn routine, if need be, so that more of our neighbors could eat.F anned by fears that their sex-obsessed society is producing hypersexual young girls, the French Senate has voted to ban adults from entering a child under age 16 into a beauty pageant. The measure, approved in Paris Wednesday on a 197-146 vote, would set criminal penalties of two years in prison and 30,000 euros -roughly $40,500 -in fines in an effort to pro-tect girls from becoming sexualized too early. The measure next goes to the National Assembly for further debate. The bill was written by conservative French lawmaker Chantal Jouanno, who said the hyper-sexualization that touches chil-dren between 6 and 12 years old strikes at the foundation of French equal rights laws. The ban was an amendment to broader legislation intended to increase gender equal-ity. Jouanno was commissioned by the French health ministry in 2011 to report on hypersexualization of children following outrage at a Paris Vogue magazine photo display that showed 10-year-old model Thylane Lna-Rose Blondeau striking a sultry pose while lying in bed and dressed in slinky adult clothing. Lawmakers also complained that some French girls were reporting to public school wearing high heels, padded bras and makeup. Although many of the loudest critics of the Vogue photo shoot came from our side of the Atlantic, the French Senates vote was widely seen there as anti-American. Child beauty pageants have been the stuff of a major U.S. movie Little Miss Sunshine and reality TV shows like Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Toddlers & Tiaras. Video clips of pageant performances by 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey went viral worldwide imme-diately after her 1996 murder in Boulder, Colo. But crossing the line on child sexuality has long been a controversy for both countries. French film director Louis Malle produced the American-underwrit-ten 1978 film Pretty Baby, which detailed the life of a New Orleans child prostitute played by 12-year-old actress Brooke Shields, who appeared nude in the film. The most common reaction this week by Americans whove posted comments on Twitter and on blogs about the proposed ban on child beauty pageants has been to tell French lawmakers: Merci.

OBITUARIES COMMUNITY CALENDAR Homecoming at Fort White High Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City Reporter
By STEVEN RICHMOND email@example.com A walk inside six-year-old Katelyn Goffs bedroom reveals the typical trappings of a firstgrade girl: Disney princess mem orabilia, stuffed animals, legos, a tiara and other pink personal affects. But little Katie Goff is a cardcarrying member of Mensa, a high-IQ society that requires its members pass an intelligence test as part of the membership process. We knew she was very bright for a while, her mother Jamie Simpson said. Shes always been read to and just picked it up on her own. She didnt need to sound it out or anything, she just did it. Katelyn was given the Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test and Reynolds Intellectual Assessment Scales when she was a five-yearold kindergarten student at Summers Elementary. Descriptors such as very superior, gifted, and excep tional were used by the schools psychologist Lance O. Hastings to describe her cognitive abili ties. Katelyn presents the profile of a very friendly and mature child for her age, Hastings said in his psychological report, just inches below her 99th percentile rank ings in Verbal Intelligence and Composite Intelligence scores. Every parent likes to think theyre child is special and bright, Katelyns father Don Goff said. But now we can say ha, told you so. They said her verbal IQ was four points beyond the chart. Katelyns mental aptitude is evident in how she communi cates with others and the way she responds to questions. She chooses her words thoughtfully, carefully pronouncing each syl lable as if she were building a house of cards. When asked how challenging her aptitude test was, she cheer fully replied, Easy peasy as pie. Her favorite book is Goodnight Moon, a bedtime story she enjoys so much that she memorized the entire story aa a one-year-old, according to her mother. It makes me want to go to sleep, Katelyn said. Her palette is as mature as her mind. Shes a fan of Brussels sprouts and broccoli covered in lemon juice. During her interview with the Reporter, Katelyn and her mom ran through a series of small mental tests, such as naming the chemical symbols for various ele ments (including Beryllium and Potassium) and performing sim ple single-variable algebra equa tions. I wouldve never believed Id have a child doing algebra at six, Goff said. Katelyns parents say theyre worried about boredom affecting their daughters performance in school. They said they plan to meet with her curriculum coun selor on Tuesday to give her more challenging work. I had a dream the day before yesterday, Katelyn said, That I took FCAT in the first grade. How did you do, her mother asked. I scored 16 hundred thousand points, she replied. Given her track record thus far, a score like that doesnt seem unlikely. Ripple to return to Lake City from his out-of-town job, Sarah Ripple let her son Charlie play on the bounce houses and earn prizes at miniature golf. Charlie, 3, putted the golf balls into the hole several times, winning gum and a Slinky. You cant go wrong with bouncy houses and barbecue, Sarah Ripple said. Lake City local Thomas Henry leads the Budmeisters, who competed again this year in all four categories. At approximately 11:45 a.m. on Saturday, Henry was prepping his ribs box for the judges. Though he was expected to turn in at least 8 ribs, he plated 10 large ribs and then cleaned the edges of the Styrofoam box with Q-Tips and nap kins. It has to be spotless, uniform and look good, Henry said. Its very serious ... but we all have a good time. Most of the competition teams are just like a big family. Ninety percent of us know each other. Lake City residents and visitors from out of town milled about the spacious festival. Kids ducked into the bounce houses, disap pearing from view until they plummeted down the exit slide. Adults exam ined jewelry, bird houses, clothes, purses and more. Though local Sylvia Pepper hadnt sampled any of the food by about 2 p.m., she planned to taste a couple of nearby competing teams, especially a smaller grill set-up from Alachua. The smaller ones are probably better, she said. I havent tried it yet, but it smells good. Wellborn-based FencedIn BBQ had a long line in front of its booth, as staff handed out Boston butt sandwiches and rib slabs. Owner Lawrence Rentz said the ribs were his bestseller. Even though he cooked about 320 pounds of food Saturday, he expected to run out by 3 p.m. He started cook ing the food at 1 a.m., so it had time to sit for six hours. Rentz likes to cook it low and slow, he said. Its a great crowd, Rentz said. I cant wait for next year. Budmeisters and Fenced-In BBQ had some local competition from the Lake City Fire Department cook team, Black Helmet BBQ. Four firefighters joined together to cook at the Smokin Pig for the first time. Black Helmet BBQ competed in all four categories. The group plans to come back next year. Were excited to com pete at such a high level, Austin Thomas said. We barbecue at the fire department all the time. The others always tell us how good it is. For Columbia County resident Martin Munoz, Saturday was his first time at the Smokin Pig. He had just arrived at the festival and was excited to try the food. Already Munoz was standing in a long line extending from one of the barbecue booths. Ive been saving myself all day for these ribs, he said.

By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comFlorida Highway Patrol Troopers allegedly discovered six drivers licenses, five social security cards, seven credit cards, six checkbooks and one passport in a car rented by a Fort Lauderdale man. According to an FHP arrest report, Ahmad Xavier Hall, 23, of Fort Lauderdale, and Clifton Oneal Robinson, 23, also of Fort Lauderdale, face charges of lar-ceny, fraud for illegal use of credit cards, fraud for imperson-ation, and a moving traffic violation. Hall was also arrested on charges of marijuana possession and drug equipment possession. Trooper J.C. Lemery stopped Hall and Robinson in a rented 2013 gray Chevrolet Impala as it headed north on Interstate 75. As the vehicle slowed, Lemery watched the driv-er, Robinson, switch seats with Hall before finally stopping, the report read. Lemery opened the rear passenger door of the Chevrolet, smell-ing the strong odor of marijuana. Green marijuana residue was scattered across the rear floorboard, the report continued. Both Hall and Robinson were detained. A thorough search of the vehicle revealed two bundles held together by a rubber band stored behind the rear passen-ger side quarter panel. The bundles contained a passport, six checkbooks and a womans wallet. The wallet held several wom-ens drivers licenses, social security cards and credit cards, the report stated. According to the FHP report, it appeared as if some-one had been practicing signatures on the back of the checks. Lemery also said he noticed that someone had been writing checks to the other victims for amounts at and above $1,000. The report states that it is typical for people who look similar to the victim to attempt to cash illegally written checks. Hall and Robinson admitted to switching seats because Robinson had a suspended drivers license, but denied any knowledge of the illegal items. Hall is currently being held at the Columbia County Detention Facility on a $192,000 bond, while Robinson is being held at CCFD on a $201,000 bond. By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comS ix empty chairs surrounded a table set with black plates, a lit candle and a service hat from each branch of the military dur-ing the POW/MIA Recognition Day Ceremony at the Lake City VA Medical Center Friday. Held on a yearly basis, the ceremony remembers the men and women held hostage as prisoners of war or those who went missing in the line of duty. According to Nicky Adams, assistant chief of Voluntary Services, many of Americas veterans made the ultimate sacrifice, a fact that the rest of the nation should not forget. It takes a community to remember, she said. We cant do it by ourselves. Each American needs to do his or her part. Rows of community leaders and military veterans filled the auditorium at the VA Medical Center. The Marine Corps League donned their signature red and gold caps, while on the opposite side of the room members of the VFW and the Military Order Purple Heart Chapter 772 watched the ceremony from the sidelines. As the Table Ceremony progressed, AmVets Chaplain Jerri Watkins described in detail what each aspect of the ceremo-ny meant. The dinner table laden with plates, silverware and service hats is sym-bolic of the POW/MIA spirit. It is round to show Americans everlasting concern for the missing comrades. The Bible rep-resents the strength gained through faith to sustain those lost from our country, founded as one nation under God. There are more than 88,000 warriors who are still unaccounted for from con-flicts past, and still their family waits, She said. Our work is not done. More than 140,000 Americans since WWI have endured the hardships of captivity. Those sacrifices for freedom must never be for-gotten. She continued by thanking the U.S. Merchant Marines, the United States Navy, the United States Marines, the United States Coast Guard, the United States Air Force and the United States Army. As she listed each branch of military, members of the Florida Youth Challenge Academy carried the caps to the table, placing them next to each plate, facing the audience. American warriors of yesterday and today have never failed to answer their nations call, Watkins said. Through their selfless sacrifice they have brought a concept most associated with American ideals: Freedom. A precious word. A word with so many meanings to so many people. After all the branches had been honored, Watkins pressed play on a portable CD player. A rendition of Taps filled the room. The Florida youth Challenge Academy students, the Marine Corps League and the veterans spread throughout the audi-ence rose to their feet and saluted the empty table. A World War II veteran in the front row stood from his wheelchair, a bit wobbly and aided by fellow audience members. He too saluted his missing comrades. Guest speaker Marvin Lane of Chaplain Service read a letter from by his father-in-law Vice Admiral Diego E. Hernandez, father of Lake City VA ambassador Dolores Lane. Hernandez was the first Hispanic to be named Vice Commander, North American Aerospace Defense Command. He flew two combat tours in Vietnam. His military decorations and medals include: Silver Star, Purple Heart, Legion of Merit, Distinguished Flying Cross and more. POWs are my heroes, Hernandez stated in his letter. I have known many of them. I have flown with many of them. Some in my airwing, some in my squad-ron. When I knew them before they were shot down and captured, I saw them as typical naval aviators: Confident, self-con-fident and perhaps a little cocky. But after they were shot down, each man became a beacon of hope to the other captives against the brutal actions of their captors. The senior officer of North Vietnamese prison camp, Jim Stockdale, established the rules the other POWs were to follow, Hernandez contin-ued. To avoid being paraded in front of anti-US journalists, Stockdale slashed his scalp and disfigured himself by beating his face with a stool. Other POWs Hernandez honored in his letter were Bill Lawrence, who learned to read French while captured, and Sen. John McCain. McCain was offered to leave camp due to his family connections, but chose to stay a prisoner until all his fellow comrades were released. It took five years. Can you imagine the courage and integrity it took to refuse an offer to be released from hell? Hernandez asked in his letter. I have learned that families too are affected deeply by war and they merit our support and our thanks for what they too have endured. To those of you in the audience who have born the brunt of our wars, I salute you.7A WILSONS OUTFITTERS1291 SE Baya Dr, Lake City (386) 755-7060WilsonsOutfitters@comcast.net Tumblers New Blue Color New Camo for Women have just arrivedMens & Childrens Camo By Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2013 7A Empty chairs at VA honor POWs, MIAsAMANDA WILLIAMSON/ Lake City ReporterMakaila Lestenkof, of the Florida Youth Challenge Academy based at Camp Blanding, carries a service hat for the United States Coast Guard during a T able Ceremony Friday at the Lake City VA Medical Center.

By TIM KIRBY email@example.com FORT WHITE After a week of homecoming fes tivities, Fort White Highs football team started a little slow against Chiles High on Friday. The Indians hit high gear and turned a 14-7 halftime lead into a 35-14 finish. One to whom slow can never be used in the same sentence is running back Tavaris Williams. After consecutive 200-plus yard games, Williams was even better against Chiles. He carried 18 times for 364 yards. Williams had touch down runs of 63, 59, 80 and 44 yards. One run of 99 2 3 yards to the end zone was called back for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty when Williams waved to the crowd at the 15-yard line. It turned the run into a mere 69-yarder. Williams said he saw his grandmother and was wav ing at her. Lake City Reporter SPORTS Sunday, September 22, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?

Fort White beats Chiles, 35-14 District destroyer By BRANDON FINLEY email@example.com If Columbia High was looking to make a statement in District 4-6A consider it done after a 63-13 demolish ing of Terry Parker High. The Tigers scored early and often against the Braves and never punted in the contest. Lonnie Underwood matched a single-season rushing touchdown record he set last week with anoth er five-touchdown perfor mance and Nathan Taylor had a breakout game with four touchdown passes. Underwood set the tone early with a 41-yard touch down run on the Tigers third offensive play with 8:02 remaining in the first quarter to give Columbia a 7-0 lead after Brayden Thomas connected on the extra point. Zedrick Woods sacked quarterback Mark McCoy on third down of the Braves second possession and Columbia went back to work. This time, it was Taylor who finished the drive after Underwood had runs of 28 and 10 yards to put the Tigers in scoring position. Taylor found defensive standout Terry Calloway, in at fullback, for a nineyard scoring play with 5:17 remaining in the first quarter. The highlight of Terry Parkers night came on the following kickoff when Cornelius Fleming returned it 98 yards for the score, but it was the last of the posi tives for the Braves until the games final play. Taylor had his second touchdown pass of the game when he connected with Alex Weber from 44 yards out to give Columbia a 21-6 lead with 40 seconds remaining in the first quarter. The big plays kept com ing in the second quarter, begining with Underwoods 45-yard touchdown run with 10:22 remaining in the half. Carlos Vegas sack stalled the next Terry Parker drive, and it was back to work for the Tigers. This time, it only took one play for Taylor to find Akeem Williams for a Columbia makes easy work of Terry Parker, 63-13. CHS continued on 3B BRENT KUYKENDALL /Lake City Reporter Columbia Highs Lonnie Underwood looks to score against Terry Parker High in the Tigers 63-13 win in District 4-6A play in Lake City on Friday.
C hiles Highs head junior varsity football coach is Philip Browning. Yes, the grandson of that Philip Browning who ruled Lake City Junior High as its principal for many years. His grandmother was Ethel Browning, who taught at LCJH. Brownings maternal grandparents were G.T. (Doc) and Sarah Melton. Melton was a state senator from 1959 through the 1966 term. During World War II in 1944 when Columbia High didnt have a football coach, Melton volunteered to do the job and the Tigers played a 10-game season. Browning is the son of Philip Browning Jr. and Patricia Melton Browning. He said his mom lives in Tallahassee and his dad still lives in Atlanta. Browning walked on at Florida State and later graduated as a Seminole. My roommate at Florida State was a coach and as soon as I was done playing, he put me in touch with Coach (Mike) Lassister, Browning said before the game against Fort White on Friday. I had been a volunteer coach at the school and Coach Lassiter said he had an opening for a JV line coach. As strict as Mr. Browning was as principal (stay off the grass, stay out of the halls, lunchtime raids at Mrs. Lula Maes store to catch smokers, etc.), Mrs. Browning was equally sweet. I think he passed away when I was 9, Browning said. I stayed at their house and saw a lot of them when we came to Lake City. I teach culinary arts at Chiles and my grandmother was the one who inspired me to get into the kitchen. She was such a good cook, I wanted to know how she did it. Browning was close to his other grandparents. Sen. Melton was a golfer who once tried to qualify for the U.S. Open. We talked golf every time I was over there, Browning said. I gave him a golf club for a gift and got it back and I still use it. Browning also remembered his late uncle, Tommy Browning, a bombastic legend in Lake City. I had a lot of dealings with him, Browning said. I figured there was no better way for him to go out than in a homemade pine box, wearing his orange Gator jacket, and with When the Saints go Marching In playing. Browning is married to Jessica and they are expecting their first child in March. He is the youngest of three children, joining Callie (Ryan) Hudak, who lives in San Antonio, and Sarah (Edward) Hales, who lives in Atlanta. The Hudaks have a 1 12 -year-old daughter and the Hales have a 2-year old son, so Browing has had some practice before he becomes a dad.

From staff reportsRichardson Middle Schools football team has dealt out a couple of big defeats this season, but the Wolves got a taste of the other side with a 32-0 loss to Madison County Central School on Thursday. Teryon Henderson scored all five touchdowns for the Broncos. It was homecoming for Richardson and Kamaya Bennett was crowned queen at halftime. Mackenzie Crews was Miss Congeniality. Diamond Ross also was a queen nominee. Kaden Jones was crowned king earlier in the week.

The Bucs beat Aucilla Christian Academy 143-148 on Tuesday and Lafayette High 187-205 on Thursday. Aucilla Christian only brought four golfers, so the schools agreed to use three scores. Branfords Tyler Allen was medalist with a 45. Tyler Bradley shot 48 and Rylee McKenzie shot 50. Allen also was medalist against the Hornets with a 43. Hunter Hawthorne shot 44, McKenzie shot 46 and Bradley shot 54. I knew they didnt have the speed to run with him, Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson said. They didnt tackle that well and he made a couple of guys miss. Williams first touchdown came at 5:55 of the first quarter and he added another with 1:57 left before halftime. Chiles quarterback Trey Melvin hit Jonathan Scaringe on the first of two touchdown passes to pull the Timberwolves within seven points at intermission. That lasted 20 seconds when Williams broke his 80-yard run on the first play of the second half. After a TD pass from Melvin to Marcus Holton, Williams scored at 2:15 of the third quarter. Isaiah Sampson put on the exclamation point with a 40-yard interception return for a touchdown with 7:29 left in the game. Melton Sanders tacked on his fifth extra point. I was just in the zone, Williams said. I feel like I get better every week. I owe it all to my linemen. Two of those up-front blockers are seniors A.J. Kluess and Chris Waites, who were able to celebrate their last homecoming win. Thats all you can ask for as a senior, Waites said. We put in so much work over the summer. Its good to get the whole commu-nity out and finish the work for them. It feels great to win, Kluess said. We worked hard. Both like blocking for Williams, and nine others also carried the ball for a total of 516 yards. We are told to finish our blocks no matter what, Waites said. Its a good feeling to know somebody can hit it and you dont have to wait on him. He makes it easier, Kluess said. He has good vision and is ridiculously fast. Jackson didnt like the Indians three turnovers, but was pleased with the result and sending Chiles to 0-3. We got a good win, Jackson said. When you come out an beat a 7A team, it is always good for us. We had some miscues here and there and gave up a couple of big plays, but our defense played well. They swarmed to the ball. Our run defense is pretty solid. Fort White (3-0) has a week off before start-ing District 2-4A play at Fernandina Beach High on Oct. 4.

Terry Calloway recovered a fumble for the Tigers at the Braves 19-yard line and Underwood added to Columbias lead with a six-yard score to make it 42-6. Taylor ended his 4-of5 night with his fourth touchdown pass in as many completions with a 51-yard thriller to Michael Jackson. Taylor ended the game with 138 yards and four touchdowns. It felt good to come in and perform, because coach (Brian Allen) put an emphasis on it in practice, Taylor said. We wanted to show people that we could pass it too. It feels great. The second half began with a running bclock, but Underwood wasnt done adding to his totals in the Tigers two second-half pos-sessions. His first attempt went to the house on the first play of the second half as Underwood cut up field and outran the defense for a 60-yard score. Bryan Williams and Woods both had sacks on the Braves following possession and Roger Cray returned a punt for a touchdown from 40 yards, but it was called due to a penalty. Underwood would cap off the night with a seven-yard rushing touchdown to round out the scoring for the Tigers, but Terry Parker did add a final score on the games final play when Fleming scampered 50 yards for the 63-13 final. Still, it was a statement game for the Tigers in their first district contest. This is why we practice so hard during the week, Allen told the team after the game.

Taylor shines in Tigers 63-13 win By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High had been looking to open up the passing attack all season coming into Fridays 63-13 win against Terry Parker High. Nathan Taylor, in his second start, finally helped the Tigers accomplish just that in impressive fashion. Taylor went 4-of-5 passing and all of his comple-tions went for touchdowns as he racked up 138 yards through the air during the first half. His lone incom-pletion bounced off the hands of a Tiger receiver. It was a performance that caught the eye of his coaches. He did an outstanding job, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said. Hes a little gamer. Offensive coordinator Mitch Shoup said that even when losing out on the starting job prior to the year that Taylor remained poised and knew his moment would come. He told me that it was just going to make him work harder, Shoup said. Thats the kind of player that you want to have. And for Taylor, the moment to shine was on Friday. Still, he didnt want to take all the credit. I think we played great, Taylor said. The offensive line did a great job of protecting me. I had plenty of time. The wide receivers did a good job of getting open and making plays after they caught it. I feel like were playing with confidence.

Gators defeat Vols with new quarterbackBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comGAINESVILLE Saturday Night Live doesnt premiere until next week, but the Southeastern Conference opener for Florida certainly looked like a joke in the first half before the Gators took con-trol in a 31-17 win against Tennessee on Saturday. The two teams combined for seven turnovers (includ-ing a fumble on a punt) in the first half as Florida built a 17-7 lead, but the second half was played without a turnover and the Gators were able to take control. Besides the turnovers, the story of the first half was Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel going down with an injury. Gator coach Will Muschamp said that Driskel wouldnt return for the rest of the season after an injury sustained while throwing an interception for a touchdown to Devaun Swafford with 10:05 remain-ing in the first quarter. I hurt for him, Muschamp said. I hurt for us, because Jeffs a good player. Its going to hurt us. Driskels replacement, Tyler Murphy, showed that he could be a dual threat, as he rushed for 84 yards and a touchdown while complet-ing 8-of-14 passes for 134 yards and a touchdown. His first touchdown pass as a Gator was mostly the result of Solomon Patton. A screen pass to the receiver resulted in a 52-yard touch-down. It was one of the few positives in the first half for either team. Floridas next score came after defensive lineman Darius Cummings inter-cepted a Nathan Peterman pass and rumbled 30 yards to set the Gators up at the Volunteers 40 yard line. A seven play, 40-yard drive was capped off by Mack Brown from three yards away. Murphy again made a play with his legs on the drive with a 12-yard scam-per on third-and-6 to keep Florida moving. Murphy did it with his arm on Floridas first pos-session of the second half with a 31-yard completion to Quinton Dunbar. It was part of a touchdown drive capped off by Matt Jones on a four-yard run. Tennessee had cut Floridas lead to seven points with a 44-yard field goal from Michael Palardy on its previous possession. Murphy had already found the end zone with his arm, but he found it with his legs to cap off Floridas second drive of the second half and put Tennessee away. The Gators used 5:26 of the game clock to take a 21-point lead early in the fourth quarter after Murphy rushed for seven yards and a touchdown on third-and-6. Justin Worley replaced Peterman in the second half for the Volunteers and he was able to muster one touchdown without turn-ing the ball over for the Volunteers. Worley found Alton Howard for an 18-yard score with 10:20 remaining, but Tennessee wouldnt get any closer than 14 points. It wasnt pretty at times, but in the end it was a win in the SEC, something Muschamp and the Gators will take. That was a true team victory, doing what we had to do to win the game, Muschamp said. Thats where we are. Associated PressTALLAHASSEE No. 8 Florida State and quar-terback Jameis Winston defeated FCS opponent Bethune-Cookman 54-6 despite plenty of sloppy play Saturday. The defending ACC champions (3-0, 1-0) will want to clean up their offense before starting a seven-game stretch against conference foes next week. Winston completed 10 of 19 passes for 148 yards and two touchdowns. Devonta Freeman ran for a game-high 112 yards and a touch-down. Karlos Williams fin-ished with 83 yards rushing and two touchdowns, and James Wilder, Jr. added 56 yards and a touchdown. The Wildcats (3-1) scored their lone touchdown off a seven-yard run from quar-terback Jackie Wilson at 8:21 of the third quarter. Florida State ran away in the second quarter, but all three starting receivers had dropped passes, including two for touchdowns. The defense also missed several tackles.No. 4 Ohio State 76, Florida A&M 0COLUMBUS, Ohio Kenny Guiton set a school record with six touchdown passes all in the first half to lead No. 4 Ohio State to a victory against Florida A&M on Saturday. It was an epic mismatch between a team with nation-al-title aspirations and a Football Championship Subdivision member get-ting a $900,000 guarantee. FAMU (1-3), which suffered its worst loss ever, trailed 48-0 before picking up its initial first down in the second quarter. Guiton completed 24 of 34 passes for 215 yards. His TD passes went to five dif-ferent receivers.No. 7 Louisville 72, FIU 0LOUISVILLE, Ky. Teddy Bridgewater threw four touchdown passes and Louisvilles defense allowed a school-record 30 yards, helping the Cardinals blow out Florida International. It was the highest scoring game for the Cardinals (4-0) since a 73-10 victory over Murray State in 2007. Bridgewater hit DeVante Parker for two TD passes and Gerald Christian and Eli Rogers for one apiece before Will Gardner came on and passed to Michaelee Harris for another score in the fourth quarter. Dominique Brown, Senorise Perry, Michael Dyer and Brandon Radcliff rushed for TDs.No. 9 Georgia 45, North Texas 21ATHENS, Ga. Aaron Murray threw for 408 yards and three touchdowns, and ran for another score to lead Georgia over pesky North Texas. Murray overcame an early interception in the end zone, hooking up with freshman Reggie Davis on a 98-yard TD the longest pass play in school history.

The Lake City City Council accepted a bid on the project at the Tuesday, Sept. 3 meeting when city council mem-bers authorized a contract with Union LaSteel Metal Buildings of Lake Butler to erect the structure. The projected total cost is estimated at $187,492. The contractors shall fully complete all work required under this agree-ment within the first 90 calendar days from the date any equipment or building materials have been delivered to or placed on the construction site or 90 calendar days from the date the city issues contractor notice to proceed, said Jackie Kite, Lake City Community Redevelopment Agency administrator. The base contract amount for the pavilion was $146,889. Council accepted the bid for the pavilion as well as accepted bids for some additional costs associated with the project. The associated costs included 60x80 feet of roof liner panels for $10,103 Lake City Reporter Week of September 22-28, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section C Columbia, Inc.

2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 22-28, 20132CBIZ/MOTLEYand other work. The CRA advisory committee decided it wanted a more finished look under the ceiling part of the building, Kite said. This 60x80 feet of roof liner panels is going to finish the underside of the build-ing. Additional costs also encompass three gabled ends with metal siding for $9,000 and a portion of the building will be enclosed with brick siding, estimated at $21,500. The brick will match the current brick buildings like the restrooms in downtown Olustee Park and other city brick, Kite said. The pavilion will be a 60 x 100-foot building and have a 20x60-foot enclosed area on its north end. Kite said the enclosed portion of the building will contain separate mens and womens restrooms, as well as a warm-ing/prep kitchen. If somebody wanted to have an event there and have that event catered, the pavilion will have stainless steel counter tops, sinks and that kind of thing, but its not a cooking kind of kitchen, Kite said. Construction is expected to start in the near future. The notice of the bid award was mailed out Sept. 11. Once the contract is returned, along with a payment and performance bond, then the notice to proceed will be issued, Kite said. The city public works department conducted some pre-construction work at the site, including bringing in fill dirt and relocating palm trees to Halpatter Park. The structure will be a multi-use pavilion, Kite said, noting it could be used for events sponsored by either the city, possibly the chamber of commerce or for public events. This pavilion is going to be used for public sponsored events but it can also be used for private events. Most notably, it will be the new home for the farmers market. Kite said the pavilion could also be used for weddings/wedding receptions. It will be something we can rent out, she said. The CRA plans to introduce Lake Fire Night on Oct. 25 where 10 cast iron bowls will be placed in Lake DeSoto with fires lit inside them. The first time well do it will be Trunkor-Treat event this year, Kite said. Those fire pits can be rented as well.

Many fruits and vegetables will thrive here, and the enjoyment of growing your own just cant be beat. You may want to order your bareroot strawberry plants now so you can get them planted by mid-November. Youll soon be harvesting sun-ripened strawberries, and you will continue to enjoy these juicy treats well into April and May. Although strawberries are an early summer crop in most other states, in Florida they grow best during the cooler months of the year. Strawberry plants grow and produce when the temperatures remain between 50 and 80 degrees, and the daytime sunlight is less than 14 hours. This pretty much describes our fall, winter and spring seasons. In our soil and climate, strawberry plants are nor-mally grown as annuals and replaced with fresh plants each year. This recommendation is made for several reasons. First, plants decline as tempera-tures heat up in the sum-mer. The best quality and size fruit is produced by young, first year garden plants. But the most com-mon problem with using year-old plants and run-ners is nematode infesta-tion. Nematodes are tiny, microscopic worms that commonly migrate into the strawberry runners which form new plants. These tiny worms cause early problems with plants that are home propagated from seemingly healthy looking plants. There are several strawberry varieties that UF recommends for the Florida home garden. Camarosa, Sweet Charlie, and Festival are all good varieties that produce great fresh eating and freezing fruits. Currently, Camarosa is the best vari-ety for North Florida, and finding just what you want may take some on-line and on-phone shopping. Buy them as bareroot plants or as small plugs that have already been started in small containers for you. Either way, starting with healthy plants is the first step to growing your own delicious strawberries. For the best results, locate your strawberry patch in a sunny area that has well drained, slightly acidic soil. Raised beds or rows are preferred to in-ground flat rows because they provide a well-drained soil in which roots have plenty of oxygen during periods of extended rain-fall. The crown should be set just barely above the BERRIES continued on 4D Schools hoping to see family dinner time make comeback By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comN iblack Principal Melinda Moses sits down for dinner with her mother every Sunday, and sees her own children at least once every two weeks. Family time, she said, is extremely important for children of all ages. To encourage families to spend time together despite busy schedules, the Columbia County School District is support-ing Family Day 2013 on Monday. The day calls families to action by sug-gesting they eat dinner with their children. You can really tell the difference when dealing with children who have a strong support system at home, Moses said. It doesnt have to be Leave it to Beaver, but if the children have that sup-port system it makes such a big difference in both behavior and academics. Research conducted by The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University consistently finds that the more often children eat dinner with their families, the less likely they are to smoke, drink or use illegal drugs, states the Informed Families Family Day 2013 website. Informed Families: The Florida Family Partnership, a nonprofit that helps educators engage parents and children in youth sub-stance abuse prevention, organizes Family Day on a yearly basis. According to the organization, the num-ber one reason kids give for not using drugs is their parents. Eating dinner together gives the family time to unwind, said Gloria Spivey, Columbia County Safe Schools Coordinator. They can sit and have a conversation for an extended period of time. The key to this being effective is that everyone leave the electronics somewhere else. You want all of the attention to be on each other. But Spivey said this time doesnt have to be focused on encouraging kids to avoid illegal sub-stances. Dinner can be a time to talk about friends, interests, workdays and school. The school district wants parents and guardians to make family meal time part of the daily routine. Spending time with chil-dren leaves a lasting effect, she added. If a family mem-ber works the night shift, try to sit down for breakfast or lunch instead. The meal doesnt have to be someone preparing a gourmet recipe, Spivey said. It can be takeout. Its just a time to sit and share. We have hectic schedules. We have after-school activities. We have parents who work differ-ent shifts. Its just really hard to find time. You have to make time. The district plans to ask all the principals to advertise Family Day 2013 at their school by placing it on signs, on the website or on school newsletters. The mobile app will also list the event on its calendar. Even with all the electronics, children still need and desire that one-on-one facetime with their parents, Spivey said. They not only listen to what you say, they can sense through your body language and voice tone how important the topic is to you. Keith Hatcher, director of adult education, tru-ancy and charter schools, tries to make family din-ner time a priority. He has three children two who still live at home. Though his 16-year-old daughter has a busy schedule with extracurricular activi-ties, the Hatcher family frequently spends time together. I think it all comes down to structure, he said. Kids need that time to sit down with their parents and tell them how their day was. District officialsendorse FamilyDay 2013.METROThough this Norman Rockwell-esque scene may not be how modern-day dinners play out, spending time as a family reduces abuse by children of various illegal substanc es, including cigarettes, alcohol and drugs, experts say. Big-dog owners a special breedBy JENNIFER PELTZAssociated PressNEW YORKLife with Suzzane Kelleher-Ducketts dogs has required a few adjustments. Getting rid of the coffee table, for one. Stashing things in the microwave or on top of the refrigerator if she wants to keep them out of the dogs reach, since they can easily grab items off the counter and stove. Buying a minivan, and taking out the middle seat so they can fit. But after 16 years of owning Great Danes, Kelleher-Duckett wouldnt live without one. As big as they are, they love that big, the Santa Clarita, Calif.-based breeder said Tuesday as one of her two Danes, a 3-year-old, 134-pound female named Vendetta whos 34 inches tall at the shoul-der, eyed her owners sandwich after the breeds competition at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show. Whatever dog wins Americas most prestigious canine com-petition, giant breeds cant help but make a big impression on spectators who snap pictures of small children reaching up to pet huge dogs and ping the owners with queries: How much does he weigh? How much does she eat? Whats it like to live with one? Heres what its like for Chris Boltrek and Ashley Erlitz, who share their Sound Beach, N.Y., home with Huxley, a 190-pound mastiff whos nearly 2. He plays with tree branches, not sticks, and with balls designed as horse toys. He eats 10 to 12 cups of food a day, he may get spit on the walls if he shakes his head, and he outweighed the petite Erlitz when he was 9 months old and has knocked her over on walks a few times. Take the imposing-looking mastiff on a walk, and either people gravitate toward him because of the anomaly of a large dog or otherwise they walk on the other side of the street, Boltrek said as Huxley lazed in his grooming area, accepting pets from passers-by, after his breeds contest. But for all the challenges, which can include health considerations particular to massive dogs, their owners say theyre drawn to ani-mals that can inspire both awe and awwwww. The Irish wolfhound is considered the tallest among the 175 breeds currently recognized by the American Kennel Club, but the lanky hound isnt necessarily the heaviest breed.

DEAR ABBY: The other day, while backing out of a parking space, I nearly hit a woman who was walking behind my car with her tod-dler son. I didnt see them because I was dialing my cellphone and was distract-ed. The woman rightfully yelled at me to pay atten-tion and get off my phone, and although she was gra-cious and encouraged me to consider it a wake-up call, I didnt react as kindly to her out of embarrass-ment. Instead, I became defensive and didnt apolo-gize, even though it was my fault. I shudder to think of what might have happened, and I admit this wasnt the first close call Ive had. Im a married mother of two and should know better. While I cant go back and find her, I hope the woman sees this letter. I want her to know that because of that incident, I now lock my purse and phone in the trunk or place them on the backseat out of reach before I start my car. This way, I avoid the temptation to look at messages or make a call. I have also asked my kids to keep me account-able by reminding me if I happen to forget. They will be driving in a few years, and I want to set a good example for them. Please pass this idea along -especially to moms like me who try to multi-task in the car. -HANDS ON THE WHEEL IN CALIFORNIA DEAR HANDS ON THE WHEEL: Your suggestion of placing your purse and phone on the backseat out of reach is a good one. You are really lucky you didnt kill or seriously injure that mother and her child. Regardless of whether or not the woman sees your letter, I hope it will remind other drivers of the danger of driving while distracted. And while Im on the subject, I read an article recently that discussed distracted WALKING. According to U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx, this has caused an increase in pedestrian deaths. In 2011, more than 1,500 pedestrians were treated in emergency rooms because of injuries they suffered while using a portable electronic device. The safest course of action for drivers AND pedestrians is to do only one thing at a time, and to be fully present while doing it. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I have been divorced for 13 years, and I often wonder how to fill out questionnaires that ask my marital status. I have recently started checking single because enough time seems to have passed, and I dont define myself by my divorce. However, now Im wondering if theres a certain etiquette recommended. -STATUS UNKNOWN IN OHIO DEAR STATUS UNKNOWN: Honesty is recommended. As much as you might like to pres-ent yourself that way, you are no longer single. Calling yourself single is dishonest. As someone who has been married and divorced, you are a divor-cee -and you will be until you remarry. Saying you are single is a misrepre-sentation of the facts.

4D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2013 4DLIFE ground and never be covered by mulch or soil. But homeowners can grow strawber ries in a variety of ways. If space is a prob lem, try growing strawberries in contain ers, raised beds, or even hydroponically. Amend your garden soil with organic mat ter, water often for the first two weeks, and fertilize with a balanced fertilizer such as 6-8-8. Plants will benefit from a pre-plant fertilizer in which nitrogen is mostly in a time released formulation. Caterpillars will probably be your first pest to control. Watch for any outbreaks so you can pick and destroy. When the new foliage becomes abundant, so might the aphids and thrips. A strong spray of water will dislodge aphids and destroy their feeding mouth parts. Spider mites can become a nuisance later in December. Diseases can be controlled with fungi cides labeled for strawberries, and then kept in check by removing all dying and diseased plant parts. Whether your plants are in containers, raised beds or in the ground, if a frost or freeze is predicted, cover your plants with sheets or commercial protective cloth. The roots and crowns are tough, but the cold will set fruiting back by damaging tender flower and fruit tissue. Unless you want to share your crop with local wildlife, you may need to cover the ripening berries with netting made to keep the birds out. Pick your berries when they are nearly all red. They will not sweeten any more after they have been picked, but fully red ripe fruit will rot rapidly.

A Scottish deerhound, a breed some what similar to the Irish wolfhound, won at Westminster in 2011. The diminutive Pekingese was top dog last year. Lynne Hamilton would be the first to admit that good dogs can come in small packages. Her pets include a miniature dachshund and two medium-sized dogs, a smooth fox terrier and a springer spaniel. But the moment she saw a college room mates Newfoundland, I fell in love with the big breed, said Hamilton, who has since owned Newfoundlands for 32 years. Caring for the 130-pound, heavy-coated Ares involves dealing with lots of hair, lots of slobber and keeping her Enola, Pa., home at 58 degrees year-round, she said, because you dont want that panting in your face. Many dog breeds, big and small, are susceptible to certain health problems. Giant breeds can be prone to orthope dic troubles, heart problems and whats known as bloat, a dangerous stomach con dition. And in general, smaller dogs tend to live longer than huge ones. Also, temperament and training are perhaps even bigger priorities for giant dogs than others because the big breeds size and appearance can be off-putting if theyre not well-behaved. You want to be able to look them in the face and have it be inviting, said dog han dler Melody Salmi, who showed the St. Bernard best-of-breed winner, Aristocrat (or, formally, Jamelles Aristocrat V Elba), Tuesday at Westminster. Hes owned by Linda and Edward Baker of Hopewell, N.J. Afterward, Aristocrat snoozed placidly in his crate. Oftentimes, I sell a puppy to people, and they say, Oh, its so big, said Aristocrats breeder, Michele Mulligan of Diamond Bar, Calif. But a year later, the same own ers will say fondly, Theyre not so big, she said. They just grow on you. DOGS: Owners of big breeds see selves as living large Continued From Page 1A ASSOCIATED PRESS In this file photo, Aristocrat, a St. Bernard, attends a news conference about the 137th annual Westminster Kennel Club dog show in New York. Caring for a large dog has demands not associated with having smaller breeds. Large breeds eat more, need more living space and can have health issues not seen in smaller breeds. Although they can require more of a com mitment that their smaller counterparts, large breeds remain popular among dog owners and the general public alike. Canals run dry in Vegas By HANNAH DREIER Associated Press LAS VEGAS Its not often you can use the word dry to describe a Las Vegas landmark, but tourists hoping to cruise along the Venetian hotel-casinos indoor canals are finding them tapped out. The waterways were emptied for repainting earlier this month for the first time since the casino opened in 1999. When they reopen in mid-October, the water will once again appear to sparkle below the hotels trompe-loeil sky. On Thursday, piped-in Italian music echoed off cement mixers and construc tion tools strewn around the bottom of the canals that meander through the hotels shopping mall. Tourists leaned over ornate stone and iron railings, frowning at the gray con crete. Normally, the canals course with 280,000 gallons of water. It would take a garden hose 65 days to fill them. British honeymooners Will and Ann Marie Husbands had booked the hotel in part because of its waterways. They were debating whether they could brave the 90-degree-plus heat to take their planned gondola ride in the canal in front of the hotel, which was still flowing but provides a much shorter ride, and is more obviously in Las Vegas, not Italy. Its one of the things that its most famous for, isnt it? Will said, still smart ing a little from the disappointment. One couple said they had come to Las Vegas exclusively to ride a gondola in air-conditioned splendor. The man behind the counter, whose job is to sell people on shows and activi ties outside the hotel, has been respond ing to inquiries with feigned shock, tell ing tourists that he still sees water flow ing through the hotel. The gag didnt go over too well with a Frenchman who spoke limited English. The nightshift kiosk clerk has been keeping a tally of people who ask about the canals. One nights list had 90 check marks. More than 500,000 visitors ride the gondolas each year, paying either $18.95 for a 10-minute group ride, or $75.80 for a romantic couples ride. Tourists who arent staying at the hotel seem to have a better attitude about the surprise. Before heading to the Venetians luxury shops, Patricia Giles of northern England joked to her traveling companion that the canals had sprung a leak. Workers who labor in the canals at night are hiding hoses, tools and big orange buckets under blue tarps beneath bridges during the day. The costumed gondoliers whose bari tone serenading provides a soundtrack to shopping and eating are gone for the month, either moved outside or tempo rarily laid off. The white wedding gon dola decked out with an officiant is also out of commission. Author Harper Lee, museum at odds By PHILLIP RAWLS Associated Press MONTGOMERY, Ala. To Kill a Mockingbird author Harper Lee is at odds with a museum in her Alabama hometown that celebrates her literary achievement over use of the words in the title of her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Lee is seeking a trademark for the words when they are used on clothing. The Monroe County Heritage Museum in Monroeville is opposing the application, contending the sale of souvenirs with the words is vital to its continued operation. Lees New York attorney, Robert Clarida, said the 87-year-old author, who lives in Monroeville, has never received a penny from the museums sale of Tshirts, caps and other souvenirs. They want to continue selling the merchandise without Ms. Lee getting any money, he said Friday. Museum Director Stephanie Rogers said Lees book drives tourism in the rural south Alabama county. She said the muse um has always been supportive of Lee, and she has never said anything about the souvenirs when visiting the museum. I feel like all we do is honor her here, she said. The nonprofit organization operates several attractions in Monroeville and uses To Kill a Mockingbird for its web site address. The organizations attractions include the old county courthouse housing the courtroom that served as the model for the movie To Kill a Mockingbird. The courthouse draws 25,000 to 30,000 visitors annually and features a display that tells Lees story in her own words. In April and May, it will present its 25th annual produc tion of the play, To Kill a Mockingbird. Rogers said the museum pays royalties to produce the play, but it has never paid for selling the souvenirs. She said tourists want a memento of their visit, and the pro ceeds are the key to museums continued operation and its educational programs. Museum attorney Matt Goforth said Friday, We are hopeful this legal dispute, originally initiated by Ms. Lees attorneys, will not damage our relationship. Lees attorney said people occasion ally show up online up selling To Kill a Mockingbird merchandise, but a letter to cease usually takes care of that. He said the trademark application is aimed at the museum because of its continuous sale of merchandise. That merchandise is remaining on sale while the trademark application is pend ing. Attorneys on both sides said the time line for legal arguments set by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office means the case could take a year or more. Last week, Lee settled the lawsuit she filed to secure the copyright to her classic novel. A federal judge in New York City approved the order dismissing the case against Samuel L. Pinkus, the son-in-law of Lees former literary agent, and com panies he allegedly created. Two other defendants had been dropped from the suit a week earlier. Lees trademark application was first reported by The Monroe Journal, the newspaper in Monroeville.
