By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comA s an officer stops a woman tres-passing on private property, the unknown suspect reaches inside her jacket — in some instances she simply pulls a cell phone, but sometimes it’s a gun. The question is, as she reaches inside her jacket, do you shoot or not? Members of the Citizens Police Academy face very real simulations of events just like this one, and they all have to make the decision. But according to Barbara Twing, a recent graduate, the lesson imparts knowl-edge of what officers handle on a daily basis. The Lake City Police Department graduated its second session of the Citizens Police Academy Monday night at the First Baptist Church of Lake City. Twenty-four individuals completed the academy, with the youngest member only 17 years old. The program is a 12-week course held on Thursday evenings from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m., and offers insight into the inner workings of LCPD. It is free to the public. “These citizens took 12 weeks out of their busy schedules, their families and their lives,” said LCPD Chief Argatha Gilmore. “A lot of times after working all day, would come here, to learn about law enforcement. The end result is for them to be better educated and better informed about what we do.” Different reasons drew the graduates to the program, which consists of briefings on criminal law, firearm safety, commu-nity relations, internal affairs and crime prevention. For high school junior Zulema Quiterio, her dream is to eventually become a police officer. “I thought it would give me knowledge about law enforcement,” Quiterio said. “Sometimes I’m kind of scared of what they go through, but I think I still want to be an officer.” She even allowed herself to be tased in the pursuit of knowledge. A brief moment of shock left her tense and unable to move, but she said as soon as it was over, every-thing was normal. The program already has a waiting list for the next session, which begins in January. But the police department invites anyone in the community to join the acad-emy, as long as they are over 18 years old and can pass a background screening. “We have a variety of different backPeople.................. 2AOpinion ................ 4AObituaries .............. 5AAdvice & Comics......... 5BPuzzles ................. 3B TODAY IN PEOPLE Epiphany says thanks.

Rick Scott’s decision Monday to pull Florida out of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers test, a national assess-ment designed to measure students’ perfor-mance in Common Core State Standards. Scott — caught in a crossfire over the future of Florida’s public schools — is trying to respond to critics of new education standards slated to go into effect next year. Instead of rejecting or endors-ing the standards, Scott called for public hearings and possible changes to the Common Core State Standards in addition to the state’s dismissal of PARCC. “Florida’s had incredible suc-cess in preparing our children for the future, and we’re not letting up in demanding high standards from classrooms,” said Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City. “That’s why the Governor should be applauded for setting a path forward to determine what’s best for Florida’s needs. The Governor also took an impor-tant step in informing the U.S. Department of Education that we will not subject Florida’s class-rooms to PARCC. We need to ABANDONS NATIONAL TESTING REGIMEN Common Core State Standards may alsobe revised, Gov. says.

The board also adopted a $9.2 million fiscal budget for the com-ing year, beginning Oct. 1. The board approved the .962 millage rate during its final 2013-14 budget hearing Monday in a meeting that lasted about 45 minutes. Last week during its initial budget hearing, the Hospital Authority Board adopted a 1.5 mill tax levy, but opted to go with the lower millage rate in its Monday meeting. For the past two years the board has levied a .962 millage rate. Had the Hospital Authority Board gone with the higher tax levy, it would have made for a $9.9 million budget.

Roderick Everett Higgins, 39, of 1736 SW Buckley Lane, also faces two assault charges and a misde-meanor charge of disorderly intoxication, according to a Lake City Police Department arrest report. The Lake City Medical Center called police Sunday after Higgins repeatedly threatened medi-cal staff. Because Higgins was intoxicated, medical center staff did not want to release him. Higgins reportedly became aggressive toward Officers Tammy Cox and Louis Troiano when they entered his room Higgins POLICE LSHA continued on 3A Citizens Police Academy graduates 24 Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterLake City Mayor Stephen Witt (from right) and Lake City Po lice Chief Argatha Gilmore congratulate Darnel Schauer for completing the 12-week Citizens Police Academy at the 2013 Graduation Program held at the First Baptist Church Fellowship Hall on Monday The graduates got to see police work first-hand, and gained a deeper knowledge of how the agency works to protect and serve. ‘I loved it,’ Schauer said. ‘It was very informative. The officers were outstanding. We found out how much th ey have to do each day. We all wanted to go another 12 w eeks.’ Program gives civilians a taste of police work Training is much like real Lake City Police officers undergo, but ‘more fun.’ Lake City resident Barbara Twing tells the story of how s he was the first to volunteer to be tazed. When asked what the best part of that experience was, she replied ‘When it was over. It’s like someone giving you a noogie. Your going to be surprised. It will take you to your knees.

Charges reduced in baby death case HALLANDALE BEACH Prosecutors have reduced the charges against a South Florida woman whose baby was found buried in a backyard. The Broward State Attorneys Office down graded the charges on Monday against Brittney Sierra from second-degree neglect for causing bodily harm to third-degree child neglect. Sierra, who is pregnant, may be able to bond out of jail. Earlier this year the medical examiners office said her 5-month-old son died as a result of homi cide.

William Arthur Ward Americas most quoted writers of inspirational maxims Breaking Bad, Modern Family win big LOS ANGELES B reaking Bad, the brutal, drug-fueled saga of an everymans ambition turned evil, captured its first best drama Emmy Award on Sunday, denying the online series House of Cards a his tory-making honor. I did not see this coming, said Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, tipping his hat to Netflixs political thriller House of Cards, the first digital contender for top Emmy honors. Attention and acclaim for the AMC cable channels Breaking Bad has built as it nears the end of its fiveseason run next Sunday, with the final eight-episode arc eligible for next years Emmys. Modern Family won its fourth consecutive trophy for top comedy series even though its oft-honored cast was shut out this time. Jeff Daniels won the Emmy for best drama series actor for his por trayal of an idealistic TV anchorman in The Newsroom, with Claire Danes capturing top actress hon ors for her troubled CIA agent in Homeland. Daniels noted that hed also received an age 50-plus acting honor from AARP, which represents the interests of older Americans. With all due respect to the AARP, this is even better, Daniels said. Pompeo: The Emmys felt so dated to me NEW YORK Ellen Pompeo wasnt a fan of this years Emmy Awards show. The 43-year-old actress said she was really disappointed by Sundays telecast. I didnt see any diversity in the Emmys at all. The Emmys felt so dated to me, she said in an inter view Monday. ... That dance num ber was embarrassing. Did you see one person of color in that dance number? Greys Anatomy is one of the more diverse shows on television, which Pompeo said is one of her favorite things about the series. Im extremely proud of our very, very diverse cast which represents the world that I walk around in every day, she said. Greys Anatomy is now in its 10th season on ABC. The new sea son will premiere Thursday. Prisoners tops box office with $21.4 million NEW YORK The more adultoriented fall moviegoing season got off to a strong start over the weekend, as the Hugh Jackman kid napping drama Prisoners opened with a box office-leading $21.4 mil lion, according to studio estimates Sunday. The Warner Bros. thriller, which also stars Jake Gyllenhaal, is among the first fall films with Oscar aspira tions to open in theaters. It was a strong debut for a serious, R-rated drama that cost about $46 million to make. Following the robust business for Lee Daniels The Butler (now up to $106.5 million in six weeks for the Weinstein Co.), the large audiences turning out for adult fare bodes well for Hollywoods coming awards sea son.

Authority and Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center, which is currently owned by HMA, requires the Hospital Authority Board to provide HMA funds equivalent to 1.5 mills tax in Columbia County. Last year the Hospital Authority used reserve funds to help reach the 1.5 mills requirement and apparently will follow the same path during the upcoming fiscal year. With the .962 tax levy, the Lake Shore Hospital Authority will generate approximately $2,136,427 in ad valorem revenue. The Authority Board also unanimously adopted its $9,205,527 fiscal budget. By going with the .962 tax levy the Hospital Authority Board plans to take $200,000 from its hospital services reserves, $900,000 from its clinical services reserves and $100,000 from its capital improvement reserves. The Hospital Authority will have approximately $3.5 million remaining in its reserves. During the public hearing on the budget, two resi-dents asked the Authority Board to forgo levying the 1.5 millage rate and instead go with the lower tax rate. Hospital Authority board member Koby Adams, who was not present at the previ-ous meeting, asked about giving the equivalent of the 1.5 tax millage rate levy for the agreement. Hospital Authority legal counsel Marlin Feagle said if the board could raise the funds from other sources to meet the requirements of the agreement that would be acceptable. Adams then made a motion to adopt the .962 tax levy and for the Hospital Authority Board to use some of its reserves to make up the difference to meet the requirements of the agree-ment with Shands HMA. By using the .962 tax levy, the Hospital Authority plans to pull approximately $1.2 million from its reserves. “I would behoove the rest of you guys to go with the .962 rate,’ Adams said. “It’s not much back into the peo-ple’s pockets, but it is some. With the management we have, we’re going to be fine for another year — at least.” Authority Board member Marc Vann noted that the Hospital Authority Board has used its reserves to make up the equivalent for the past few years when no other local taxing authority was willing to dip into their reserves. Vann noted that the Lake Shore Hospital Authority Board has saved local tax-payers about $4 million in property taxes over the last three years. Tim Murphy, the Hospital Authority’s newest board member, said the economic downturn is not over, but noted that Gov. Rick Scott has complimented the Hospital Authority sound fiscal practices over the past few years. Murphy them followed Adam’s lead for the .962 millage rate. “We don’t have any major capital outlay projects fac-ing us where we need these reserves,” he said. Murphy also questioned the 5 percent raises that were given to employees at the last meeting and said he was not in favor of the sal-ary increases in the budget. He said he plans to address the matter at the next meet-ing after he learned that line item budget amendments could be made. put our energy into what matters most, rather than placing additional burdens on our schools.” According to Terry Huddleston, Columbia County School Superintendent, the PARCC assessment had not been completed, required exten-sive amounts of time for testing and was entirely computer-based. The test would have increased the amount of bandwidth the district needed to purchase in order to fully assess all of its students. Statewide, school superintendents recommended Scott drop PARCC, but suggested Florida turn to a “off-the-shelf” test — or one already completed — instead of creating its own. “There has to be accountability,” Huddleston said. “It is my understanding from the superintendents meeting that there are off-the-shelf tests that can be adapted to fit our present standards. ... The PARCC assessment was not well thought out and was rushed, rather than having confidence in a solid assess-ment already in existence. That’s what concerned all of us superintendents.” Scott, in an executive order and letters to top state education officials, said he remains in favor of the “highest academic stan-dards,” but wants to make sure there isn’t any “federal intrusion” into education policy. The Republican governor called on Education Commissioner Pam Stewart and the State Board of Education to issue a bid to determine what tests should be used to replace the current test, the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. Columbia County Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Assessment, Accountability, Technology and Professional Development Kitty McElhaney said the move away from PARCC will not affect local students because the state has yet to implement the test. However, the district now has to wait for the state to announce testing measures for the 2014-15 school year. Local schools will continue to teach courses with the current standards — some are Next Generation State Standards and some are Common Core — until a recommendation from state to make an alteration, McElhaney said. “What Floridians need to know is not our leaders are ‘for Common Core’ or ‘against Common Core,’” Scott wrote in a letter to State Board of Education Chairman Gary Chartrand. He added that as governor, “I support Florida’s high academic standards and strongly reject over-reach into those standards and other areas of our edu-cation system by the fed-eral government.” Scott is taking these steps amid a growing rift in his own party about educa-tion policy. His moves also come just one day after former Gov. Charlie Crist — a likely challenger to Scott — wrote a critical opinion piece in the Tampa Bay Times about Scott’s handling of education and said he was capitulating to tea party members. “This is a nonsensical reason to reject them,” Crist wrote. “Scott needs to stand with Florida students and no one else. This is not a time for rank partisan-ship.” Scott initially backed Common Core standards, which set uniform bench-marks for reading, writing and math. But in recent weeks he refused to come out strongly in favor of Florida’s transition to the new standards, which have been adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia, as opposition has mounted among local Republican Party organiza-tions. The standards are a result of an initiative sponsored by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers. Opponents see them as the nationalization of education policy and stan-dards, something they say should be left to the states. The new standards are backed by former Gov. Jeb Bush, who helped create the state’s current A-to-F grading system while in office from 1999 to 2007. It would be a huge defeat to Bush’s potential presi-dential campaign if his own home state suddenly changed directions on edu-cation, an area where he is seen as a leader. Bush has championed the standards as a way of raising expectations for students who may not be ready for college or careers. The appointed board that oversees Florida’s public schools has already adopted the new standards and the state is moving ahead to implement them. Elementary schools are already using the stan-dards and the plan is to fully implement them dur-ing the 2014-15 school year. But now Scott wants the board to hold public hear-ings and possibly revisit and alter the standards afterward. The Associated Press contributed to this story.

According to the report, Higgins refused to coop-erate with medical staff and law enforcement, say-ing “I’m gonna get you all when I get my boys at 904.” When Troiano attempted to arrest Higgins, he kicked the officer in the genitals, the report stated. Neither Officer Joe Moody nor Troiano was able to restrain the suspect. Officer Larry Thomas then informed Higgins sev-eral times that he would be tased if he did not stop resisting. Higgins ignored him. At that time, Thomas used his X26 Taser twice. Higgins continued to resist after the first five-second cycle. After the second use, Troiano handcuffed Higgins — who continued to pull and jerk away from the officers while walking to the patrol vehicle, the report said. On the way to the Columbia County Detention Facility, Higgins told Troiano he was going to shoot all four of the officers involved when he bonded out. At the time, his bond was set at $12,000. “I’m going to shoot you and the other cops once I’m out,” Higgins stated, according to the report. “I’ll get ya off duty too.” Higgins has since been released from jail.

It’s close to the training that our actual officers go through, but it’s more fun.” Mayor Stephen Witt, City Manager Wendell Johnson and Chief Gilmore greeted the group. Following the intro-ductions, several graduates told stories about their experience with the program. The ceremony ended with guest speaker Judge Julian Collins. “For us to preserve our strength as a nation, our workplaces have to be secure, our institutions strong and our society, ever vigilant, ever vigilant about our core values,” Collins said. “I hope that, among the things you learned over the past two or three months, your mind has been reaffirmed about the continu-ing need for that vigilance and for your appreciation to those who maintain that vigilance in our community.” Lake City resident Dorcas Gruel wanted to see firsthand the daily activities of the police officers in Lake City. She felt it was great to get to know the officers. But her favorite part was meeting the canine unit, the furry companions of the officers that put their lives on the line to assist their human counterparts. She highly recommends that everyone take the course. Sandra Smith, also a Lake City resident, decided to take the class after hearing other library volunteers talk about it. “I always wanted to see law enforcement from the inside,” she said. “I was married to an officer at one time, and I’ve been a victim many times.” After two ride-alongs, Smith feels like she has seen a side of Lake City she didn’t know existed. The officer patrolled parts of the community she had never been to, places she called “a different culture.” With empty time to fill and a curiosity about how the police interact with the public, Denis Lawton was drawn to the pro-gram. “I was looking for something to use my time up, but it turned out to be much more than that,” he said. “I realized it was really important for me to take the class. .. I enjoyed the crime scene part. It gave me a chance to practice being in CSI.” As of right now, the 24 graduates are associate members of the CPA. On October 10, CPA will welcome them as full members with another cer-emony. The Academy helps raise money to support the local police department through fundraisers. According to President Paul Twing, the current proj-ect of the CPA is to support the canine unit of the LCPD. But Monday night, the graduates were just excited to finish their class and enjoy the company of their fellow CPA members. “Congratulations, graduates,” Washington said. “We are proud to serve you.” LCPD: Citizens Police Academy Continued From Page 1A JASON MATTHEW WALKER/ Lake City ReporterGuest speaker Third Judicial Circuit Judge Julian Coll ins tells how Lake City Police officers responded to a burglary at his residence, and reinforced how much law enforcement sacr ifice while fulfilling their duty.


A ccording to a new Gallup poll, 55 percent of Americans say they have little to no confi-dence that they can rely on mass media to report the news “fully, accurately and fairly.” Forty-six percent say the media is too liberal and just 13 percent think it’s too conservative. Justification for this public sentiment is evident as the budget and debt-ceiling issues heat up and the press can hardly restrain its disdain for Tea Party Republicans and the idea that our nation may really be in crisis. New York Times columnist David Brooks does a regular political com-mentary feature along with Mark Shields on the “PBS NewsHour.” It’s hard to believe that this feature is supposed to be balanced, with Brooks the alleged conservative and Shields the liberal. But for PBS, like The New York Times where Brooks writes his column, anyone not on the far left is a conservative. In a recent “NewsHour” segment about the budget debate, Brooks talked about “the rise of Ted Cruzism.” According to Brooks, the Republican freshman senator from Texas is not a “normal” senator who sees himself in Congress to form alliances and pass legislation. Rather, per Brooks, Cruz is more a “media protest person.” The same thing is happening in the House, says Brooks. House Republicans are “not normal. ... They just want to obstruct.” My organization, the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, held an event in Washington two weeks ago titled “Reversing the Urban Plight.” About 100 black pastors and community leaders from around the country listened as black conservatives such as Dr. Ben Carson, economist Walter Williams, Louisiana State Sen. Elbert Guillory and CURE chairman and Family Research Council senior fellow Ken Blackwell talked about how free-dom and conservative principles hold the key to resolving our urban crises. At dinner, Cruz dropped by.In stark contrast to what the PBS viewing audience heard from Brooks, this audience heard remarks from Cruz that everyone in the room found refreshingly nor-mal. Cruz had a crisp, clear message about getting America back on track and about what it will take to save our low-income urban com-munities. He talked about the importance of school choice and personal retirement accounts for low-income Americans. Only in Washington is it considered abnormal and obstructionist for a member of Congress to ring the alarm about the loss of free-dom in America, to take a stand to restore it, and suggest that Americans, particularly low-income Americans, should be able to decide what kind of school they send their child to and to keep and save more of their hard-earned income. In Cruz, the black pastors heard someone who wants to liberate, not obstruct. They understood that the obstructionists, whose agenda is holding onto and expanding their own power, come from the political class in Washington. While the median American family income dropped 6.6 percent from 2000 to 2012, median family income in Washington, D.C., grew 23.3 percent -by far the highest in the nation, new Census Bureau data show. Let’s recall that the tea party movement got going when it was clear in 2009 that America’s new president saw more government rather than less as the answer to America’s crisis. The 2010 health care reform commonly called “Obamacare,” which passed without a single Republican vote, has only gotten more unpopu-lar. A USA Today/Pew Research Center poll this week shows 53 percent of Americans disapprove of the new law and 42 percent approve. Forty one percent strongly disapprove and 26 percent strongly approve. It’s Washington that is abnormal, not Ted Cruz and tea party Republicans. Only a left-wing press can conclude that the abnormal obstruc-tionists are those taking a stand for freedom in a country that is sup-posed to be free. T he Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s warning about the deadly threat of antibiotic-resistant infections the other day should prompt widespread reforms. But we suspect the report that found more than 2 million people in the United States are afflicted with drug-resistant infections a year — 23,000 cases are fatal — is likely to be met with the same inaction that followed other warnings of about deadly “superbugs.” The promiscuous use of antibiotics, in medical treatment and food production, is the likely blame for much of the problem. But Washington has been reluctant to exert tighter control, given the opposition of the agricultural indus-try and other influential interests. As the CDC report further documents, infectious diseases are becoming more difficult to treat. Already, once readily treatable illnesses such as strep throat have become resistant to antibiotics. The CDC earlier this year reported drug-resistant gonor-rhea was increasing. The latest report estimates antibiotic resistant infections cost the nation about $20 billion in unnecessary health care costs each year and perhaps as much as an additional $35 million in lost productivity. Antibiotics are wonder drugs that have saved countless lives, but widespread and often indiscriminate use has resulted in many germs becoming more tolerant of the treatment. A few years ago an Associated Press investigative series found that the nation used more than 35 mil-lion pounds of antibiotics a year, and 70 percent of the drugs were given to “pigs, chickens and cows.” The practice enables bacteria that may be transmitted to humans to adapt to the drugs. Much of the agricultural use of antibiotics is necessary to ensure the health of animals in livestock facilities. But the drugs are also given to promote growth. This is understandable given that extra weight increases profit margins, but it hardly seems to justify compromising the effectiveness of essential drugs. Agricultural use is hardly the only culprit. Patients frequently misuse the drugs. They often stop using the antibiotics once they begin to feel better, rather than taking them for the prescribed length of time. This increases the odds of germs becoming drug tolerant. Some patients seek antibiotics for colds and other ill-nesses where they have little effect. The latest CDC report estimates that as many of 50 percent of antibiotics are prescribed incorrectly or to patients who do not need them. The AP investigation found that Norway impressively reduced the rate of infectious disease by reducing the medical use of antibiotics. Yet the United States, despite alarming evidence, has done little. It’s time Congress and the Food and Drug Administration treat this as the growing crisis that it is. As CDC director Thomas Frieden aptly warned, “If we are not careful, we’ll go the medicine cabinet, and it will be empty.” P resident Barack Obama has been criticized fairly for dithering over critical decisions and then not fighting hard for them. Circumstances have conspired to make one of the most important decisions of Obama’s second term for him. Thankfully, it’s the right one, and the president may not even have to fight hard for its approval. On Sunday, Larry Summers – Obama’s first choice to lead the Federal Reserve Board, one of the most powerful jobs in Washington – withdrew from consideration.... Summers would have been a hard sell to the Senate. He’s bril-liant, knows it and doesn’t mind letting others know it. He has a combative personality combined with a knack for unfortunate phrasing, as when he suggested there might be inherent gender reasons for the disparity between men and women in the sciences. That, and his awkward attempts to explain his way out of the situ-ation, cost him his job as presi-dent of Harvard. Moreover, Summers was opposed for the job by a hand-ful of Democratic senators on the left, who thought he was too averse to financial regulation. Obama seemed disinclined to bring them around. Summers’ withdrawal puts Janet Yellen at the head of the line for the Fed chairmanship. Vice chair of the central bank, she has more experi-ence there than the last three chair-men did when they were named. Washington Post columnist Ezra Klein recently described her as being “the most qualified Fed chair in memory.” And prescient, too. Recently declassified transcripts of Fed meetings from February 2007 show she foresaw the coming reces-sion when many of her fellow board members did not. Yellen is also one of the board’s strongest voices for fighting unemployment, a too-often-forgotten element of the Fed’s mandate. For whatever reason, she gets lukewarm support from the White House, which recently floated the name of former Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner. He has emphatically said he doesn’t want the job. However, support for Yellen is strong outside the White House, in Congress and the financial community. She would not only be the first woman to hold the Fed job, she would be the first Democrat since 1987. Obama has known since at least June that current chairman Ben Bernanke plans to leave when his second term expires in January. It’s now September and time for the White House to get moving. Presidents don’t often get easy choices. This is an easy one.

C ovenant Community School held its annual Grandparents Day program Sept. 13. Students and teachers took time out of their day to entertain and honor their grandparents, as well as the grandparents in our com munity, nation, and world. The school held a pro gram that included a song by the Kindergarten-6th grade students and a skit from the drama team. Students also read poems and stories that spoke of the role a grandparent plays in a childs life and of memories of time spent with their grandparents. I think it honored the grand parents well and made us laugh, said Debbie Crews, a grandparent in atten dance. It was considered a success by all who attend ed and were involved.

Special day at Covenant Community Fewer school districts promoting junk food By MIKE STOBBE AP Medical Writer ATLANTA Theres been a big shift in how many school districts take money from soda com panies and ban junk food from vending machines, health officials say. A government survey found 44 percent of school districts banned junk food from vending machines last year, up from 30 per cent in 2006. It also found drops in how many districts took a cut of soft drink sales, received donations from soda companies, or allowed soda company advertising. Those are considered positive steps in help ing the nation reduce the number of children who are overweight and obese. But its not clear to how much impact the changes are having. The overall proportion of U.S. chil dren who are overweight or obese has been holding steady at around 17 per cent, according to govern ment statistics. Experts say that diet and exercise at home are at least as important as what kids are exposed to in school. There are lots and lots of factors that go into obesity rates, said Nancy Brener, lead author of the government report on the study. She is a health scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The findings come from a detailed government survey last year of more than 800 U.S. school dis tricts. The CDC does the study every six years. The CDC released the latest findings Monday. It found: The proportion of school districts that allowed soda companies to advertise soft drinks on school grounds through posters, score board placards or other ways dropped from 47 percent to about 34 per cent. Of districts that allowed schools to sell soft drinks, the percent age that received a por tion of sales receipts fell from 82 percent in 2006 to 69 percent in 2012. Of districts that allowed soda sales, the amount that received cash awards, equipment dona tions or other incentives from soda companies fell from 52 percent to 34 per cent. The percentage that required physical educa tion class in elementary schools stayed flat, at about 94 percent. Thats pretty high, so its not surprising there wasnt much change there, Brener said. She noted that the study measured school district policies, which is differ ent than asking what was actually going on at indi vidual schools. Sometimes theres a difference, but CDC doesnt have infor mation on how often that happens.

By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High goes on the road for only the second time this season when it travels to Jacksonville’s Englewood High at 7 p.m. on Friday. The Tigers will take an undefeated record with them against a team that many will say Columbia simply outmatches. But head coach Brian Allen isn’t concerned with predictions or how teams have looked in the past. He wants to make sure the Tigers are focused on their task each week. “Talking to the group last week, we probably had the best week of practice this season,” Allen said. “The kids have bought into the whole understand-ing that it doesn’t matter who we’re playing, but we’re trying to accomplish what we’re trying to do as a team. We’re going out to try to accomplish our goals. The focus, the mind-set, the emotion, it’s all still there, even if we’re playing a lesser opponent.” Allen isn’t about embarrassing any team, but he said the Tigers have to find ways to motivate themselves no matter the opponent. “We don’t just go out there and try to beat them, but let people understand we’re a team that needs to be reckoned with,” Allen said. “We came out flat against Buchholz. It’s not that they had a chance to win, but we came out differently than we did against Lincoln. The iden-tity doesn’t change from week to week. If that’s who we are, we have to know that we’re going to come out the same every week. They came out and had a great week of practice competing like they were supposed.” Despite a 63-13 win against Terry Parker High on Friday, Allen still knows the Tigers have flawed areas. One of the team’s biggest areas of pride is criti-cally analyzing their mis-takes no matter the score. An area of concern for the Tigers after the win against the Braves was special teams after allow-ing a kickoff return for a touchdown and having their own return called back due to a penalty. “The kickoff return, I wasn’t happy with that,” Allen said. “That was a good football play being executed. The return unit is off chasing the fake guy. With the kicker, we have to get the ball out of the middle. We coach that up every day. We can’t kick the ball in the middle, because that hurts our unit. We have to get those things fixed. If we aren’t critically analyzing, we start believ-ing we’re (too) good. We have things called back, and there are things we have to fix with that unit. If the kick is in the mid-dle, we have to adjust our lanes, because we have a six-man side expecting it to be kicked one way.” But it wasn’t just the special teams. Allen knows that the other units weren’t perfect either. “We had mistakes By TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE — Fort White High football has an open date this week, one that was planned when the schedule was announced. The Indians also are open on Oct. 11, when homecoming was originally planned for Faith Baptist Christian High before the school dropped football. Chiles High had to step in as Friday’s homecoming opponent and the Indians dispatched the Class 7A school, 35-14. Chiles (0-3) hosts Marianna High this week. Oct. 4 is a district date for 2-4A and Fort White will travel to Fernandina Beach High. The Pirates improved to 3-1 with a 33-3 road win at Episcopal School. Tyreke Hubbard rushed for 170 yards and scored two touchdowns. Fernandina Beach plays at Menendez High this week. Madison County High dropped its third straight game, losing at home to Trinity Christian Academy, 6-3, when the Conquerors scored on a fumble return with 28 seconds left in the game. Madison County (1-3) brings Pace High to Boot Hill this week. Fort White plays the Cowboys on Oct. 18. Taylor County High scored 14 points in the fourth quarter, but fell to Class 5A powerhouse Wakulla High at home, 20-14. The Bulldogs (1-3) are off this week to prepare for their district opener against Madison County.

By ALAN PIERCEF ishing can sometimes be famine, but on the days when it is feast, it’s important to know your bag limit, aka the number of fish you can keep and take home for dinner. These limits are a useful tool in helping protect our recreationally important species. There are several types of bag limits and, sometimes more than one type applies. Some even vary by region (spotted seatrout, red drum, weak-fish and bay scallops). “Bag limit” is defined as the number of a particular species that an individual angler can harvest and possess in a given day. For example, the recreational bag limit for red drum in the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s northeast and northwest management zones is two fish per person, per day. This means that a licensed (or exempt) angler can harvest two red drum in a given day. This does not mean that you have to stop fishing after you have put two fish in the box. You can enjoy catch-and-release fishing for the rest of the day. Another common term is “vessel limit,” which is the maximum number of a particular species that can be possessed on a vessel at any given time. Vessel limits are always used in addition to individual bag limits and do not exempt any single angler from the individual limits. One question that always comes up is, “Can one angler share his or her fish to help fill a bag limit for another angler?” The answer is no. Bag limits are individual even when an overlapping vessel limit applies. This keeps folks from taking, for example, their infant nephew fishing just so they can keep two more fish. If an officer’s observations, inspection or investigation reveals you have caught more than your individual daily bag limit, you could be subject to fines. A third type of bag limit that you will see in FWC rules is an aggregate bag limit. Like your basic bag limit, this type applies to individual anglers but instead of applying to only one species, it applies to several closely related species. Snappers and groupers are currently managed with aggregate limits in Florida waters. For red drum, no more than six fish per person can be transported by vehicle on land. If one of my buddies is traveling with me to my house, we can take all eight fish. This limit helps deter attempts to sell red drum, which can only be harvested for recreational purposes.

DEAR ABBY: I’m a 23-year-old woman who still lives at home. I have been working for the last five years and have saved enough to live comfortably on my own. Unfortunately, my parents have forbidden me to do it because they think I’m being manipulat-ed into it by my boyfriend, that I just want to “do whatever I want” and be out until late (although I’m rarely up past 9 p.m. and they know it), and because I “can’t stand them” any-more. I have no privacy! My mail is opened “mistak-enly” and my calls are listened in on even when I politely -and sometimes angrily -ask them not to. They have even imposed a rule that I must show them my bank balance weekly. They have told me I will not leave the house without being married first. I would like to live on my own before I actually marry so I can experience what it’s like. This is some-thing I have always wanted to do. If I do move out, they say I’ll “bring shame and embarrassment” to the family. There seems to be a double standard going on here because my older brother has his girlfriend sleep over. How can I accommodate my parents without being disowned? -FEELING HELPLESS IN ILLINOIS DEAR FEELING HELPLESS: Your parents have chosen to ignore that you are an adult, self-sup-porting and entitled to make your own choices. They may be well-mean-ing, but they are extremely heavy-handed. Their hyper-vigilance -opening your mail, eavesdropping on your phone calls and insisting on checking your bank balance weekly -is over the top. They would like you to be “safely” mar-ried before you leave their protection. Is their problem that they disapprove of your boyfriend? If you get a place of your own, do you plan on moving him in? If that’s not the case, there is no reason why your liv-ing independently might shame or embarrass them. Not knowing your parents, I can’t judge whether their threat to disown you is serious or not. However, if it is, realize it’s a form of blackmail, and you will have to decide which is more important -your freedom or their support. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: “Lights Out in Federal Way, Wash.” (Aug. 13) asked if it was a “sign” that her deceased parents were watching over her when streetlights would go out as she drove under them on her way home. I understand your desire to give encouragement to someone who has lost her loved ones, but don’t you know that many street-lights are light-activated so that after headlights hit them in just the right way they will turn off? After you pass under them, it becomes dark enough again and they will turn back on within a few min-utes. While I’m sure that given the opportunity this girl’s parents would watch over her, the streetlights she described have noth-ing to do with the paranor-mal but have a scientific and logical explanation. -SOMEONE’S WATCHING IN GUILFORD, MO. DEAR WATCHING: While many readers shared similar experi-ences, the majority had a logical explanation as you did. However, I still feel that if what she’s experi-encing brings her comfort, the important thing is what she chooses to believe. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): An unlikely partner-ship will bring about changes to the way you live. A change will do you good and must be incor-porated quickly before the window of opportunity closes. Think fast, take action quickly and don’t look back. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t race through everything or you will fall short and face criticism. A job you are considering will not be as exciting as it sounds. Find out exactly what’s being offered and get promises in writing. Don’t argue; be nice. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll have some good suggestions, but don’t cross the line or you will be blamed for meddling. Tables will turn quickly if your facts aren’t right. Instead, put more into your home and improving your standard of living. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Use your imagination and you will come up with interesting ways to social-ize, make new acquain-tances and find romantic settings that will enhance your life. A growing inter-est should not be ignored. Pursue what draws you with a passion. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Change your surroundings. Staying at home will result in conflict. Take time to think about a personal problem you face before you confront the situation. Time is on your side and will help alleviate making a wrong assumption. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Head out in search of a little adventure. You need a change of scenery or men-tal and physical stimulation that will perk your interest and motivate you to get involved with something exciting and satisfying. Work to straighten out any emotional mix-ups. ++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Taking an emotional trip down memory lane will help you clear up pending issues that have been standing between you and a decision you need to make. Truth will be the deciding factor when it comes to personal relationships. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may want to make some noteworthy alterations at home, but consider the cost involved. Consider innovative ways to get what you want for less. Your ingenuity will be impressive and result in raising your profile and your confidence. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A proactive approach will get the job done no matter what it is you are trying to accom-plish, but expect to experi-ence some opposition and emotional mind games along the way. Don’t hesitate; make your voice heard and put your plans into motion. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Someone with a hidden agenda will charm you. Don’t count on any-thing or anyone. It’s impor-tant to take control of any situation you face that can influence your reputation or status. Change isn’t the answer -consistency and fair play is. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put more into your sur-roundings. What you do to feel more at home or com-fortable will lift your spirits and help you put a greater distance between you and someone who has limited you in the past. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Check over paperwork that can make a difference in the way you do business or make investments. The choices you make regard-ing your health and finan-cial well-being will bring about other opportunities to pursue something or someone that interests you. ++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

By MARK LONG Associated Press GAINESVILLE Florida never really recruited Tyler Murphy. The junior quarterback from Wethersfield, Conn., had scholarship offers from Connecticut, Syracuse and Temple in 2009 when he decided to send his high school highlights about 1,000 miles south to Gainesville. It turned out to be a good move although it took four years, Jacoby Brissetts transfer and Jeff Driskels season-ending injury for Murphy to land the start ing quarterback job. In between, Murphy had people questioning whether he should change positions and/or schools. It was tough, Murphy said. Sitting on the side lines is never fun. But some times you have to be patient when you come to a big football school like this. Murphys wait ended in the first quarter of Saturdays 31-17 victory against Tennessee. Driskel broke a bone in his lower right leg against the Volunteers. Murphy took over and performed better than anyone could have predicted. Sure, there were a few hiccups. But Murphy gave the 20th-ranked Gators (2-1, 1-0) hope that their goals are still within reach. He completed 8 of 14 passes for 134 yards and a touchdown. He also ran for 84 yards and a score as Florida extended its win ning streak in the series to nine. It was a solid debut for a career backup who had thrown just one pass in four years and it didnt even count in the statis tics because it came on a 2-point conversion. It was always in the back of my mind I might never play, but I just kept working hard and just kept fighting, kept faith in myself and kept praying for an opportunity, Murphy said. Luckily, I was able to get it. It wasnt the way I wanted it, you know, but an opportunity is an opportu nity. Youve got to make the best of it. Murphy will make his first career start Saturday night at Kentucky, which has dropped 26 in a row in the series. How did Murphy get to this point? Well, it was mostly about fortitude and fortune. Murphy wasnt highly recruited coming out of Wethersfield High School. He had verbally committed to Temple, but also could see what was going on at Florida. Former coach Urban Meyer led the Gators to the 2008 national cham pionship, the programs second in three years, and quarterback Tim Tebow had become a star running the spread-option offense. John Brantley was wait ing to take over for Tebow, but the pocket passer hard ly fit Meyers scheme. So Murphy sent some game tape to the Gators. A few weeks later, he got a call from offensive coor dinator Steve Addazio, and then another from Meyer. Murphy scheduled a visit, got a scholarship offer and accepted on the spot. Florida desperately need ed a backup, but coaches felt Murphy wasnt ready as a freshman. He redshirted in 2010, watching as tight end Jordan Reed and ver satile receiver Trey Burton shared quarterback snaps alongside Brantley. Things got worse for Murphy after Meyer and Addazio left. Driskel and Brissett signed with Florida in 2011, and both immedi ately jumped Murphy on the depth chart. Murphy went from fourth team in 2011 to third-string quarterback in 2012. Some friends and family members advised him to transfer. Others suggested he switch positions. I just didnt want to give up, he said. I felt like if I changed positions, I would have gave up on myself and I probably wouldnt have been able to live with myself. Murphy got significant work with the first-team offense early in fall practice, while Driskel recovered from an appendectomy. Most believed the Gators would be doomed if Driskel got hurt, and it remains to be seen how Murphy will play against better competi tion. But the poise and pres ence he showed against the Vols were promising signs. One mans misfortune is another mans oppor tunity, Florida coach Will Muschamp said. Everybody wants it now. Hes a guy thats worked extremely hard and cashed in on his opportunity, and I look forward to seeing him play the rest of the year. 8B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2013 Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 8BSPORTSJUMP Lake City Reporter Located at SHANDS Lake City, Live Oak & Starke Womens Center of Florida ALL MAJOR INSURANCES ACCEPTED INCLUDING MEDICAID & MEDICARE FREE Pregnancy Ultrasound WITH THIS AD* *Insurance billing may occur if necessary.

JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Florida quarterback Tyler Murphy (3) is stalked by Tennessees Corey Miller while attempting to score a touchdown during a game on Saturday. Starting quarterback Jeff Driskel is out for the year due to a broken right tibia. Florida beat Tennessee 31-17. Florida turns to Murphy offensively and defensive ly, Allen said. We didnt punt all night long, but when you watch tape, you find mistakes. Well be all over them about the small things and get them fixed. As the games get more competitive against Orange Park, Ed White or whoever it may be, we cant make those mistakes. Miami expects to get Morris back Associated Press CORAL GABLES Miami expects Stephen Morris to play when the 15th-ranked Hurricanes visit winless South Florida on Saturday. Morris was knocked out of Miamis 77-7 win over Savannah State in the first quarter with a lower right leg injury. It was originally thought to be a sprained ankle, though coach Al Golden said Sunday that it subsequently was diag nosed as a bone bruise. Morris was in Miamis training room on Sunday for treatment. Golden says he absolutely thinks Morris will play this weekend. Golden expects that Morris may be limited at Miami (3-0) practice on Monday, though is hoping to have him fully ready by todays workout. Morris backups, Ryan Williams and Gray Crow, completed 17 of 19 passes for 231 yards and three touchdowns in the Savannah State win.
