By TONY OLUSTEE– M ore than 149 years ago, Union and Confederate troops clashed at the Battle of Olustee in the only major Civil War battle fought on Florida soil. The Battle of Olustee occurred on Feb. 20, 1864, in what is now Baker County. Nearly a century and a half later, on the eve of the 150th anniversary of the battle, lines have once again been drawn in the sand as two factions square off at the same place — Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park. The fight that is emerging is over a new monument that has been proposed for the park. Approval has been granted by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to allow a monument in honor of Union soldiers to be erected at the first park in the Florida State Park system. Michael Farrell, of St. Cloud, a member of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, a fra ternal order founded in 1881, is a department commander of the group that filed the paperwork Lake City ReporterSUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2013 | YOUR COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | $1.00 LAKECITYRE PO RTER.COM Walk4Liferaises morethan $25K.

Percentage on food stamps hasnearly doubled.By STEVEN RICHMONDsrichmond@lakecityreporter.comNew data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2012 American Community Survey suggest downward economic and hous-ing trends for Columbia County. The ACS began in the mid 1990s as a way to replace the decennial census long form, providing annual socioeconomic and demographic data estimates for geographic regions with a population of 65,000 or more. Two trends in particular suggest the Columbia County workforce is strug-gling through an uncertain economic future: Lower median salaries and more food stamp recipients. The median household income has seen a downward trend for the past five years, falling from $40,872 in 2008 to $36,542 in 2012. However, the median income has risen since its 2010 low of $34,174, suggesting that Columbia County’s economic dyanmics are running parallel to the nation’s crawling post-Great Recession recovery. Also, it may pay to a bachelor in Columbia County. The average nonfamily income is up 5.6 percent since 2009. Even so, the percentage of households receiving Food Stamp/SNAP benefits in 2012 has nearly doubled since 2008. According to 2012’s ACS, 1 in 5 households receive food stamp benefits—a stark contrast to 11.5 percent in 2008. The detailed ACS report also suggests Columbia County women were affected by a stagnating econo-my more than men. The median income for full-time female workers is down 5.6 percent, sliding from $30,601 in 2008 to $28,890 in 2012. Full-time working males, on the other hand, saw their 2008 median salary of $34,637 edge higher to $35,407 in 2012. The most emblematic indicator of a tough economy reveals itself in the per-centage of Columbia County families below the poverty line. In 2012, 20.2 percent of families were below the poverty line, compared to 14.1 percent in 2008. For those looking for work, the top three employers in Columbia County for 2011 were: • Educational services, and health care and social assistance: 23.5 percent; • Retail trade: 16.8 percent; • Public administration: 12 percent; Another notable trend comes in the ACS’s “housing characteristics” catBy AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comLAFAYETTE COUNTY — The bodies of two Lake City residents were recovered Friday in Lafayette County, ending a twoday search by 10 area law enforcement agencies. Bill and Lynda Ward drove to their Lafayette County home along the Suwannee River Wednesday morning, but disappeared shortly after. They were found Friday in the Suwannee River — Bill Ward at 9:45 a.m. and Lynda at 11:52 a.m. Both appeared to have drowned, according to a media release from Lafayette County Sheriff’s Office. The sheriff’s office stated in the release that it is waiting for results from the medical examiner. Foul play is not suspected. According to Lafayette County Sheriff Brian Lamb, it appears either Bill, 69, or Linda, 60, slipped into the river and the other was trying to help. “We just don’t know who,” he said. “There were no witnesses, so there’s no way to tell.” Lamb said he could provide no further information on the case, including details of the recovery. The couple usually tells their friends when they leave Lake City to travel 35 minutes to their other residence. But their neighbor Buddy Clayton said on Thursday he had no idea they were making the trip. He was leaving church on Wednesday when Lynda’s sis-ter called him with the news, and then told him she already contacted the sheriff’s office. In a Thursday interview, Clayton said the Wards’ floating dock had a broken board and signs of scuff marks.

MIAMIMiguel Endara nervously stepped on the edge of a boat on Biscayne Bay with a 30-pound machine strapped to his back. The machine had two pipes sticking out and a 33foot hose that connected to a Jet Ski. The instructor then told him to jump. Just jump in? the 30year-old asked. I feel like Im going to go straight down. But soon after he took the plunge, Endara screamed with excitement. Instead of sinking, he was flying. Two powerful streams of water came out of the pipes like fire out of a space shuttle sending Endara 25 feet in the air. The water sport, sim ply known as jetpack, has sprung up all over the world since its debut two years ago and South Florida has established itself as the overall hot spot, with 60 percent of the companys business coming from Fort Lauderdale, Miami and the Keys. The jetpack Endara recently tried out is the JetLev R200x. Its the com panys flagship product but they are set to intro duce two new products, a modified version of the jet pack and a hover board, in November. Matt Rosenblatt, the owner of JetLev, a company based in Dania Beach, said the two new products the Aquaflier and Aquaboard will make flying acces sible to a lot more people. When the JetLev R200x launched in 2011, it cost $100,000. It was marketed to yacht owners and opera tors with enough capital to pay for the machine. But the Aquaflier and Aquaboard will cost less than $10,000 when they hit the market in November. Rosenblatt expects the move to shift the current market, now primarily made up of opera tors, to individual buyers. Id like to have one in every lake and every beach in the country, he said. The skys the limit. Palmetto berry industry benefits IMMOKALEE The Mayans drank saw pal metto berries as a tonic, the Seminole Indians used them as an antiseptic and some in the Far East swear theyre a powerful aphrodisiac. Most recently, benefits to prostate health have gained saw palmetto berry pharmaceutical supple ments a worldwide follow ing. The industry, with a strong presence in Immokalee, is now the No. 3 herbal supplement nationwide with about $200 million in sales, according to Valensa, a top provider. Added to roughly $500 million in sales around the world, Valensas president says its prompted a global mar ket of about $700 million. But berry picking can lead to arrests, danger due to bees, wasps, snakes and other wildlife such as boars and bears even death from heat strokes or snake bites, and recently drownings.

As the AMC finale approaches, Albuquerque is planning on celebrat ing with watch parties and red carpet casting events in a city still benefit ing from a tourism boost thanks to the dramas popularity. Despite the shows dark themes of drug trafficking and violence, tourism officials say Breaking Bad highlighted neighborhoods around the city and gave viewers a sense of Albuquerque. The show displayed the citys downtown Route 66, its var ious stores and restaurants, and even took audiences to Latino barrios and nearby American Indian Pueblos places rarely seen in Hollywood. Before the show, Albuquerque didnt have an image, said Ann Lerner, Albuquerques film liaison. When I started this job in 2003 and I mentioned New Mexico, people would say, Oh, I love Santa Fe. No one thought of Albuquerque. That has changed in the five sea sons that Breaking Bad has aired on AMC, growing its reputation and buzz as Netflix users raced to catch up on previous episodes. Since then, trolley and private limo tours of scenes from the show have sold out and created waiting lists that go on for weeks. A city-run website detailing locations of scenes from seedy motels to the one-time head quarters of a now deceased drug lord has seen tens of thousands of visitors. The series, she said, has boosted inquiries to the citys film office. And two more television series are cur rently under production, Lerner said. Albuquerque businesses also have taken advantage by selling Breaking Bad themed products like blue meth candy and character-related clothing. One art store, Masks y Mas, continues to sell statues of La Santa Muerte, the Mexican folk saint of death. That underground saint was shown in one season opener and was the spiritual protector of the shows cartel assassins, cousins Leonel and Marco. Jury deliberates case vs. Jackson promoter LOS ANGELESAfter a bitterly fought five-month trial, a negligence lawsuit by Michael Jacksons mother against his concert promoter is in the hands of a jury after a final plea by a Jackson lawyer to punish the company he portrayed as a heart less, money-making machine. In his argument Thursday, attor ney Brian Panish, who represents Katherine Jackson, urged the six women and six men on the jury to find that defendant AEG Live LLC and Jackson shared responsibility for hiring Dr. Conrad Murray, the phy sician whose treatments killed the superstar. Earlier this week, a lawyer for AEG Live suggested the promoter was pressured by Jackson to hire Murray as his personal physician, and was deceived when Jackson and Murray hid the fact that the singer was receiving nightly doses of the anesthetic propofol in his bedroom. The drug is intended for use dur ing operations at hospitals. Murray was convicted in 2011 of involuntary manslaughter after giv ing Jackson an overdose of propofol as a sleep aid as Jackson fought chronic insomnia. Murray is in prison. Jurors were led out of the court room by 10 armed sheriffs depu ties assigned to guard them during deliberations. They spent two hours behind closed doors, then retired for the night and returned Friday for their first full day of talks. Panish used his rebuttal argument Thursday to urge the jury to find that AEG hired Murray without con sidering whether he was fit for the job. AEG lawyers say it was Jackson who hired the doctor.

for the monument. Since there are three Confederate monuments, I began to realize a monu ment to Union soldiers is needed to complete a balanced cultural picture of the battlefield, Farrell said in an e-mail to the Lake City Reporter. Farrell said he set things in motion in 2011 with a statewide meeting of SUVCW. The group is now raising money to have the monument erected. I dont know why no one has placed a monu ment to Union soldiers in the Olustee Battlefield State Park until now, Farrell said. Olustee was a major battle of the Civil War with approxi mately 10,000 men from both sides. Every Civil War battlefield Ive ever been to has monuments to the courage and sacri fice of soldiers from both Confederate and Union forces. Olustee has three Confederate monuments but, no Union. Is it not time to honor them, too? However, the project has been met with opposition from those complaining about the proposed loca tion, as well as some who question the need for the monument at all. They have the right to place their own monu ment at the battlefield, said Faye Bowling Warren of the Blue-Grey Army. The site of the monument seems to be the issue. Larry Rosenblatt, a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans who served as chairman of the 100-year anniversary of the UDC monument at the park last year, also objects to the new monuments proposed location. He said he has been told SUVCW wants to place the new monument between the two cannons in front of the 1912 United Daughters of the Confederacy monu ment. Its something that we felt like was completely out of place, he said. For one thing with all that granite there, its a black, marble monument. Plus, he added, It really will look bad on the Union soldiers because it will be sitting there flanked by two Confederate cannons with Gen. Finnegans and Gen. Colquitts monu ments directly behind it and the large UDC monu ment directly behind that. Rosenblatt also ques tions the need for the monument. He said the monu ment erected in 1912 by the UDC is meant to honor both Union and Confederate soldiers. The UDC monument contains an inscription not ing that 5,000 Confederate and 6,000 Union troops fought there on Feb. 20, 1864, and that the Union was defeated. However, another inscription indicates a clear aim to honor the Confederacy: To the men who fought and triumphed here in defence of their homes and firesides, this monu ment is erected by the United Daughters of the Confederacy aided by the state of Florida in com memoration of their devo tion to the cause of liberty and state sovereignty. In addition, there is an inscription on a metal plate around the perimeter of the monument that reads: This monument at Ocean Pond is dedicated to these Southern units that fought here. The various units are then listed. That inscription was added in 1994, on the 130th anniversary of the battle. The perimeter inscrip tion was cited on the SUVCWs application, in which the group con tended there were no monuments in the park dedicated to Union troops. State Rep. Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City, said she was approached by the SUVCW some months back about their desire for a Union monument. She said she told the group if it were true that no existing monuments honored Union troops, it would be fair to allow them to erect one. However, she said Friday that, If it is found that this one monument honors both sides of the battle, it would be my wish that we leave things as they are. The state Department of Environmental Protection, which manages state parks in Florida, will hold a series of public meet ings to discuss issues surrounding the proposed monument, she said. THE MONUMENT For six years Farrell has been an educational exhib itor representing the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War at the Olustee Battlefield State Park. He said during that time when he asked children, black or white, how many African Americans served in the Union Army during the Civil War, the answers ranged anywhere from zero to a couple of hun dred. They (children) are often astounded to learn that 200,000 African American Union sol diers enlisted in 178 regiments, Farrell said by email. These men fought to free their people from the curse of the slave labor system so prevalent in the 19th century. At the Battle of Olustee there were three African American Union regiments. The 8th United States Colored Troops; the 1st North Carolina and the famous 54th Massachusetts. There were at least 26 African American Union soldiers who won the Medal of Honor during the Civil War. Our purpose there is to make the public aware of the African American Union soldiers participa tion in the Civil War and the heritage of freedom their sacrifice means to us all in todays world. I also encourage people to learn about their family history and how their members served our country. The SUVCW formed an Olustee Monument Commission to petition the state to place a Union monument in the Olustee Battlefield State Park. A 14-page PowerPoint pre sentation was created cit ing the potential benefits of such a monument. A monument to Union soldiers is needed to com plete a balanced cultural picture of the battlefield, the document said. The monument would com memorate those Union regiments that fought there and recognize the African American regiments who comprised one-third of the Union Army of Olustee. According to the applica tion for the monument, the proposal is to add a new monument at the battlefield to provide for recognition of Union soldiers, including the large number of African Americans who fought, as well as those who were wounded or killed there. Our mission as sons is to keep green the memory of the valor and cour age of those soldiers and veterans who fought to preserve the Union and purchased with their blood the end of slavery in our land, the document said. The SUVCW proposed erecting a 10-foot tall, pol ished, black granite obe lisk. The projected cost of the monument has been estimated at between $4,000 $12,000. The SUVCW is raising funds for the monument and hope to have it in place by 2015. DEP APPROVAL Patrick Gillespie, press secretary for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, said that starting in February, the Florida Park Service began working with the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War to place a new monument at the battlefield. In April, the Florida Department of States Historic Preservation Compliance office reviewed a proposal and approved, he said in an e-mail ear lier this week. The park manager on April 27 dis cussed the proposal at the Olustee Citizens Support Organization Board meet ing. Gillespie said the park currently has three monu ments dedicated to the battle that commemorate Confederate soldiers. The Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War requested a monument dedicated to Union sol diers who died during the battle, he said by email. During the last several years, re-enactors have discussed the topic of an additional monument leading up to the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Olustee next February. There are no other monu ments dedicated to Union troops, [though] there is a monument at a nearby cemetery dedicated to Union soldiers. Gillespie said there has been feedback from people who support having another monument at the park as well as others who oppose it. He said efforts are under way to solicit input from all interested stakeholders. THOSE OPPOSED Robert Tucker, a com mander in the Sons of Confederate Veterans in Lake City, is also opposed to the monument. I have ancestral blood on that battlefield, Tucker said. I call this a desecra tion. That particular area I consider Confederate. The land was deeded to the park service by the UDC and thats the reason I want to preserve it for the Confederates. They can put up a monument, but dont put it in the Confederate section. Tucker is also a member of the newly formed group, Concerned Citizens for the Preservation of the Olustee Monument, and circulated a petition at the Olustee Civil War Expo on Saturday against the new monument. The petition says: We, the undersigned registered voters of Florida do most definitely protest the pro posed construction of a 10foot tall black granite obe lisk monument to Union soldiers, or to anyone else, to be placed in front of the 1912 Olustee monument. The original monument proudly stands next to the American Flag, and honors soldiers on both sides of the War Between the States. Not only is the new proposed monument to the Northern troops unnecessary, but it blocks a clear view of the original, unifying monument. We most urgently implore you not to locate the proposed monument in this immedi ate vicinity. We put it together earli er this week, Tucker said Wednesday afternoon in a telephone interview. Its from other people from across the state and they forwarded it to me and I added a few words. Tucker first circulated the petition Saturday at the Olustee Expo at the state park. People from Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Tampa, Lake City, McClenny and across the state also planned to circulate the petition begin ning Saturday. ROOM FOR COMPROMISE? Gillespie said the loca tion of the monument has not yet been determined. The Florida Park Service has many state parks that include historic markers and monuments because the mission of state parks is to capture the natural, historic and cultural resources of Florida, he said. Parks often work with donors who wish to see a memo rial set up in a park. Additions like these to parks do not typically require changes to unit management plans. We treasure our long and respectful working relationship that has developed over many years in many locations since the Legislature asked the Florida Park Service to manage monu ments and memorials in 1949, Gillespie contin ued. Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park serves to commemorate the battle that took place there and to honor those who lost their lives there. A Sept. 20 meeting to discuss possible conces sions concerning the proposed location of the monument was canceled. Meanwhile there has been a tassel of people writing letters to the (Florida) Park system, Rep. Liz Porter and all the park authorities, Rosenblatt said. The UDC has set their heels in and dont even want the monu ment to be there. Efforts to contact the UDC for comment were unsuccessful. Rosenblatt said allowing the proposed monument may set a new, unwanted precedent at the park in regard to monuments. If they put up a spe cialty monument like that, theyve opened up the door to make that whole park a monument park from every unit, every man that died and every man that was wounded, he said. They could have monuments all over the place. Were looking at a 100-year-old monument thats sitting there now, plus two that are about 54 years old for Colquitt and Finnegan. To set a modern monument that is not in keeping with what is there I just think it would be an eyesore. Farrell said the organiza tion has heard about the monuments detractors. In the last few weeks the SUVCW has been informed by the State Park Service of objections, he said. Three Confederate monuments exist there but one Union monument seems to have struck fear in the hearts of some people. I can say that some of the comments and criticisms are ugly and uncalled for. Union soldiers and veterans who fought at Olustee should be rec ognized culturally, by the visiting public to the State Park.

T he library of our 42nd president, Bill Clinton, opened in 2004 in Little Rock, Ark. The library of our 43rd president, George W. Bush, opened this past April in Dallas. Those are our two most recent ex-presidents. The library of our first president opened this weekend and it is long overdue. The prelimi-nary reviews are that it was worth a wait, although perhaps not two centuries’ worth. In contrast to most presidential libraries, which are generally gov-ernment-run, the $106 million Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington is privately owned, as is the Mount Vernon mansion and its grounds, by the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association. By 1853, when the association was formed to rescue Washington’s home, Mount Vernon was nearly derelict, its paint peeling, the grounds overgrown, the portico partially propped up by an old ship’s mast. It took the association five years to raise the $200,000 to buy the house and grounds from Washington’s great-grandnephew. Washington’s collection of some 900 bound volumes and other mate-rials had been allowed to scatter, in contrast to Thomas Jefferson’s, which became the nucleus of the Library of Congress. The asso-ciation owns 103 of Washington’s books, is searching for more, and has period duplicates of many of the missing volumes. Pride of place at the library’s dedication went to Washington’s 1789 annotated copy of the Acts of Congress, two of which were the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Of special interest to Washington were Sections 2 and 3 of Article II, the closest thing there was to a set of directions for a president. The association has patiently restored the Mount Vernon prop-erty, rebuilding Washington’s grist-mill and his rye whiskey distillery (bottles of which are on sale at the gift shop) and offering a relatively clear-eyed view of the lives of the slaves who made the estate run. The new library is a three-story building of limestone, wood and glass on 65 acres across the suitably named Mount Vernon Parkway from the mansion. It has stacks and vaults for the especially rare acquisitions and quarters for visiting scholars. The association hopes to make Mount Vernon a center of scholar-ship as well as a tourist destination. ... Washington would be pleased since he loved having guests, con-stantly entertained and eventually had to add a wing so he and Martha could have a little privacy. The wing contained his office and rapidly expanding library. He wrote to a friend that he wanted a building to house “my Military, Civil & private Papers, which are voluminous and may be interesting.” Washington died in 1799 before the project could be started. Now, 214 years later, our first president finally has his library -and the interest is greater than ever.We were pleased to cover graduation ceremonies for the second ses-sion of Lake City Police Department’s Citizens Police Academy last Monday evening. Twenty-four local residents got a taste of what real police work is like during the 12-week course – and loved it. Chief Argatha Gilmore is to be congratulated for putting together a program that is as popular as it is valuable. There is a waiting list for next January’s session, which surely tells you some-thing. But what most impressed us was the level of enthusiasm from the newly-gradu-ated group on Monday. The reasons varied, but everyone we spoke with recommended the course in the strongest terms. A program like this is valuable on a deeper level as well, however. It is important for folks to know just what it is law enforcement officers are up against when they answer a call civilians might consider ‘routine.’ It’s nothing like TV.Sometimes, it’s much scarier, and always more emotionally draining. Judge Julian Collins, who spoke at Monday’s ceremony, put it best: “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 during his address. “I hope that, among the things you learned over the past two or three months, your mind has been reaffirmed about the continuing need for that vigi-lance and for your appreciation to those who maintain that vigilance in our com-munity.” We wholeheartedly agree, Judge Collins.

BY EMAIL: Citizens Police Academy a winner George Washington gets his library No compromise this timeA mong the pearls of wisdom conveyed in Ecclesiastes is that everything has its time. “A time to be born ... a time to die, a time to plant ... a time to uproot, a time for war ... a time for peace.” The founders of the United States drew up a Constitution to serve as an operating manual, in its checks and balances, for peaceful, delibera-tive government. They understood human nature and set up a system in which competing interests would have to give in. Compromise, they understood, is a necessary lubricant for the wheels of government “of the people, by the people, and for the people” to turn and allow us to move forward. But compromise is meant for those competing interests -not for the core principles of the coun-try that the Constitution exists to protect and secure. When the prin-ciples of our free nation under God are under siege, it is a time for con-frontation, not compromise. The other day, I watched a short video of Rafael Cruz’s presentation at a July event by FreedomWorks, a Washington, D.C.-based political action committee that usually sup-ports tea party causes. Cruz is the father of the junior Republican sena-tor from Texas, Ted Cruz, who is now in the spotlight. Rafael Cruz is a self-made businessman, an immigrant from Casto’s Cuba, and a born-again evangelical Christian pastor. Most of the time when someone cites the Declaration of Independence, they mention its famous opening sentences. But Rafael Cruz, in this brilliant sum-mation of what America is about, quoted the signers’ closing words: “... with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.” Take a walk around Washington any evening. The fancy restaurants are filled with lobbyists and legisla-tors. Try to find anyone who would pledge his or her life and fortune for anything. The American government is no longer about doing the business of the people while preserving and protecting the principles of a free nation. The principles of freedom have been drowned out by the power elite -whether politicians, big business lobbyists or big media -who use their influence to feather their own beds. A Jeremiah-like Ted Cruz, ringing the alarm that things are not OK, is an annoyance to the comfort-able establishment. As the class of “haves” protects its interests, it assures a dismal future for our young and for our poor. Its mem-bers play while the ship sinks. There is no more powerful predictor of economic growth and prosperity than a nation’s economic freedom. The just-published “2013 Economic Freedom of the World Report” shows that the United States has dropped from being the world’s second-most economi-cally free in 2000 to number 17 in this year’s report. The report comes from the Fraser Institute, a Canadian public-policy think tank. Our economic arteries are clogged because of excessive gov-ernment, which is dragging us down and ruining everything that made America great. The Affordable Care Act is just the latest huge incursion into the freedom of American citizens in a long process of deterioration. Every year, the trustees of Social Security and Medicare provide a report showing the dismal financial state of these huge entitlement pro-grams. And every year, the political class in Washington ignores it, not having the courage to fight for real change, while things continue to worsen. Now big business, unions and Congress are getting themselves exempted out of Obamacare, ready to leave the rest of country to be shepherded into socialized medi-cine. But Sen. Cruz, like his brave father Rafael, is putting his life, his fortune and his sacred honor on the line to save our beleaguered country. When Abraham Lincoln took office, he still believed that slavery could be purged from America through deliberation. But soon it became clear that only war would do it. America must stand by Cruz and other brave tea party Republicans who understand the message of Ecclesiastes: that there is a time for everything, and that today is the time for confrontation.

ondary offense and its weak penalties. The legisla tion says first-time offend ers will be charged with a non-moving violation and $30 fine, while second-time offenders will be charged with a moving-violation and $60 fine. However, fines vary county-by-county in Florida for traffic violations. Text and drive in Columbia County and youll receive a $114 non-moving violation fine the first time around, and a $164 moving violation fine for a second offense. Any additional court costs are not included in the pen alties. Nonetheless, the ban can only be enforced as a secondary offense, mean ing law enforcement offi cers will not be able to pull individuals over solely for texting and driving. Rather, an officer must pull over a driver in relation to another traffic offense, such as running a red light or speeding. I would have to visu ally see you texting, LCPD Public Information Officer Steve Shaw said. I might see you looking down in your lap, but cant prove it. I might see you run a red light while looking down at your lap, but you might have been looking at a drink between your legs. The burden of proof is with us, and there are some challenges to it. Of the 256,000 traffic accidents in Florida in 2012, 4,586 of them were attrib uted to distractions from electronic communication devices, according to data from FDOT. However, public safety officials suspect the num ber is much higher, since drivers must admit to using a cell phone before officers can link the crash to cell phone distraction in their accident reports. Since texting and driv ing was not an enforceable offense in Florida, there was no reliable way to track just how many accidents were caused by distracted cell phone use. Florida Highway Patrol Public Affairs Officer Sergreant Trace HislerPace likened the new leg islation to Floridas seatbelt law which started as a sec ondary offense in 1986 and became primary in 2009. It was secondary for many years, but we were able to stop people and talk to them about it and get the message across that its a dangerous thing to do, she said. I feel were going in the same direction, but it takes time. Im very happy to see it go through. However, the new law is not without its loopholes. The legislation contains language saying the law does not apply when the driver is: Reporting an emergen cy, criminal, or suspicious activity to law enforcement authorities; Receiving messages that are related to the operation or navigation of the vehicle, safety-related information, data used by the motor vehicle, or radio broadcasts; Using the device or system for navigation pur poses; Conducting com munication that does not require manual entry (like iPhones Siri voice-recogni tion app); Conducting wireless communication that does not require reading text messages except to acti vate, deactivate, or initiate a feature or function. The law also does not apply to stopped vehicles, including those at red lights or stop signs. The one advantage given to law enforcement is that the users billing records and message contents can be used against them as evidence in the court of law. Message recipients can receive a subpoena to appear in court, as well. Texting while driving will add points under the following circumstances: Use of a wireless com munications device within a school safety zone2 points; Unlawful use of a wire less communications device resulting in a crash6 points. In an effort to pro mote awareness, the Florida Department of Transportation designated Oct. 1 as Put It Down day, encouraging people to consider the consequences of using a cell phone while driving. I certainly hope people will look at [texting and driving] and recognize that its contributing to crash es happening around the state, Shaw said. I hope thats the way people look at it, take that into con sideration and think before they text and drive. Hisler-Pace referred to the new law as just anoth er tool in the toolbox for troopers to use in the field to help save lives. I think its a positive thing, she said. I truly believe any law the legis lature passes that makes the driving environment for motorists safer is a good thing. Itll give us the opportunity to enforce the law. If we can cut down on crashes due to destructive driving, were saving lives. Thats what we want to do. Florida is one of the last states to create legisla tion penalizing texting and driving. Arizona, South Carolina, and Montana are the last remaining states that currently do not have any legislation banning texting and driving. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 29, 2013 Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 6A Outstanding Leader of Inpatient Therapy Our therapy program is designed to rehabilitate individuals back to their highest level of independence and functioning.

Woman faces charge of false imprisonment By STEVEN RICHMOND A Columbia County woman is behind bars after assaulting her moth er and resisting officers Thursday night, according to the Columbia County Sheriffs Office. Jessica Ann Jordan, of 128 NW Green Lane, was arrested by sheriffs depu ties physically attacking her mother and detain ing her against her will, according to the arrest report. According to deputies, Jordans mother, Elizabeth, said she was arguing with her daughter over a par enting class and pending Department of Children and Families case, the report said. As the mother attempted to call police, Jordan hid all the phones in the house and told herto sit on a nearby couch while she retrieved a rope-like rubber screen holder in order to restrain her, the report said. The mother said she attempted to flee the house, yelling and screaming, but that Jordan restrained and prevented her, the report said. By STEVEN RICHMOND OLUSTEEA thunderous boom broke the cool morning calm as Civil War re-enactors fired Sheila, an 1841-style cannon during the Olustee Civil War Expo Saturday. Fans and historians milled about the historic location of the 1864 Battle of Olustee, learning about the trials, tribulation and history behind Floridas most significant Civil War battle from groups of re-enactors and experts on mid-19th century American life. Scott Miller, one of the cannoneers with the Melrose-based Tri-County Artillery, removed his earplugs and gave attendees a brief his tory lesson on the Battle of Olustee as the smoke from Sheila cleared. It was another Union attempt to get [Tallahassee], Miller said. Florida supplied a great deal of beef to the Confederacy and the Union troops were trying to cut off that supply line. Although the Union forces out numbered the 5,000 entrenched Confederate soldiers at Olustee Station, the South was able to repel the advance of Federal troops and maintain control of Florida. Ive been doing events like these for a few years now, 8th Florida Infantry reenactor Nathan Collins said. I got started as a drummer boy in the Boy Scouts. I think passing this knowedge onto younger generations is important. It helps get them out of textbooks and into the real side of it, the human side. It helps them see what the soldiers went through. Terri Blocker sewed and dyed old fabrics with a group of women from the Jacksonville-based Golden Teacup Society, showing visitors the civilian side of the Civil War. There was a town here before and after the war, Blocker said. Sometimes people forget that life went on at home. People still had to grow food and take care of families. George Scott and Jay Nicely of the 2nd Florida Cavalry huddled around a makeshift fire, heating water and brewing coffee in a small tin cup. Some soldiers only got by on hardtack, which is basically just flour, salt and water. Maybe some game, too, if you were lucky, Scott said. Civil War men put up with a tre mendous amount because they believed in what they were doing. Men back then were willing to sac rifice for a cause. Whether it was preserving the Union or defending their homes, they were just trying to protect their way of life. STEVEN RICHMOND/ Lake City Reporter Terri Blocker demonstrates what life was like for wartime Olustee civilians during the Olustee Civil War Expo Saturday. Her exhibit demonstrated a typical civilians limited access to materials and how women would repurpose worn out fabrics to produce new clothing.

COUPLE: Bodies found Friday Continued From Page 1A CENSUS: County grew poorer Continued From Page 1A egory. The number of housing units has remained stable since 2008, dropping only 1 percent. However, the number of vacant units has risen from 11.8 percent in 2008 to 20.6 percent in 2012, even though the annual percentage of out-of-county immigrants has stayed relatively stable every year between 2008 and 2012 (about 10 percent). If housing vacancy is rising while immi gration remains stable, and the number of housing units has decreased in the same period of time, that suggests one or both of two things: People are leaving Columbia County or theyre dying off. In fact, 19.1 percent of county residents were over the age of 62 in 2012 alone. So where are most of our new residents coming from? In the past five years, of the average 10 percent of new residents: 6-7 percent came from Florida; 3-5 percent came from a different state; 0.0-0.8 percent came from abroad. The 2012 ACS also revealed estimates of the leading ancestries in Columbia County. Of the nearly 68,000 county resi dents, the top five ancestral origins were: German, 17.3 percent; Irish, 14.8 percent; English, 11.2 percent; American, 8.2 percent; Sub-Saharan African (nations south of Egypt, Libya, Algeria, etc), 6.5 per cent.

Walk4Life raises more than $25,000 By STEVEN RICHMOND F our-hundred sixty people laced up their best walking shoes for the 5K Walk4Life in Lake City and Live Oak Saturday morning, raising more than $25,000 for the faith-based Pregnancy Care Center. Everythings running great, Pregnancy Care Center executive director Donna Sandage said, scanning the crowd of participants warm ing up for the event on a cool Saturday morning in Olustee Park. Each participant in the walk was backed by a sponsor, such as a family member or friend, who pledged donations of vari ous sizes to the organization. Were a faith-based organiza tion, meaning we dont receive any state or government funds, Sandage said. So this is an opportunity for people who believe in life, who believe in God, to say that publicly, that every life has a purpose. Walkers of all ages made the 3.1 mile trek through a downtown loop along Marion, Baya, Ermine, and Lake Drive, including Sarah Floyd and her three sons, Gabriel, Grady and Garrett. We support everything theyre doing, Floyd said. I come from an adopted family, so this really means alot to me. Babies are a blessing from the Lord.

Still undefeated BRENT KUYKENDALL /Lake City Reporter Columbia High running back Lonnie Underwood tries to break loose from Englewood Highs Ergen Imeri in the Tigers 59-0 win in Jacksonville on Friday. Tigers go on Ram-page against Englewood, 59-0 By BRANDON FINLEY Columbia High moved to 5-0 on the season with ease as the Tigers rammed through Englewood High with a 59-0 win in District 4-6A play in Jacksonville on Friday. Running back Lonnie Underwood rushed for five touchdowns all in the first half for the third straight week and finished with 215 yards. Underwood came out of the game in the second half after sustaining a shot to the ribs toward the end of the first half, according to head coach Brian Allen. Underwood said he thinks about the record. Hes also thinking about the single-season rushing touchdown mark which is 28 touchdowns held by run ning back coach Quinton Callum. Underwood has 22 rushing touchdowns through five games. I wanted to stay in, Allen said. I felt like I was running good, but there are more games. It would mean a lot to break the record. Allen said that Underwoods time would come, but his main concern was the running backs health. He got hit in the rib area, and I wanted to be smart about it, Allen said. The best thing to do was take him off the field and save him for when we need him the most. Nate Taylor continued to play well at quarterback with a 6-for-9 game with 139 yards through the air and a touchdown. The Tigers began the game with a 24-yard field goal from Brayden Thomas and never looked back in their first defensive shutout of the season. Underwoods first touch down came on a five-yard score with 3:51 remain ing in the first quarter. He broke a 75-yard run to set up the touchdown on the play before. Columbia forced a threeand-out early in the second quarter after Will Bowen registered a sack and the Tigers began to pour it on the Rams. Underwood scored his second touchdown of the game on a 25-yard run com ing with 5:17 remaining in the second quarter to give Columbia a 16-0 lead. After a 40-yard return from Roger Cray follow ing the Rams next posses sion and a face mask pen alty added on, Underwood added a third touchdown from five yards out to give Columbia a 23-0 lead with 3:05 remaining in the half. Carlos Vega added a fumble recovery to the defenses day and set up Underwood for a 10-yard touchdown run and the Tigers had a 30-0 lead with 2:03 remaining in the first half.

Going into the year, we wondered how’d we replace a guy like Javere Smith, but he’s a little guy that gives us every inch of what he’s got.” The Tigers brought out the running clock for the second half with a three-play drive to end the first half. It began with a 20-yard pass from Nate Taylor to Underwood, followed with a 21-yard pass to Carswell. Underwood capped the drive off with a nine-yard touchdown run. Taylor got into the touchdown action to begin the second half when he hit Akeem Williams for a 51-yard strike on the half’s second play to give Columbia a 44-0 lead. Allen went as far as to say that Taylor might have earned the starting spot going forward, but wouldn’t rule out Jake Thomas tak-ing snaps in a game during the future. “It’s scary how he’s been playing as only a sopho-more,” Allen said. “He’s a guy that has a chance to go 4-0 while Jake is down. He’s still making mistakes, but it’s hard to go to a kid and tell him he’s going to sit when all he’s done is win games. It’s like I said before the season though, I expect both to have chanc-es to play before the season is over.” After a three-and-out, Englewood went to punt on its first possession of the second half. A bad snap forced a safety to give Columbia a 46-0 lead. The Tigers would add to it with a drive that spanned into the fourth quarter and was capped off by a Darian Dallas’ touchdown run from a yard away to give Columbia a 52-0 lead. The game’s final score came when Zedrick Woods forced a fumble on a kick-off and Cray scooped it up to score for the 59-0 final. Columbia (5-0, 2-0 District 4-6A) returns to Lake City for homecom-ing against Orange Park High at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.

Both matches begin with JV play at 5 p.m. with the varsities to follow at 6 p.m. Columbia travels to Middleburg High at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday. Chalk one up for the good guys I n the movies we know that the good guys always win, evil always crumbles and the good guy gets the girl. Sadly, we live in the real world and that isn’t always the case. This time, however, there is good news to report in the form of former Columbia High player Javere Smith. On Sept. 17, Lisa Smith walked into my office wondering if there was anything I could do to help bring some light to the injustice that was taking place against her son. Javere, a 2013 graduate and member of the Tigers’ football team, had received a full scholarship to play football at Northern Arizona University. There was only one problem — the NCAA had ruled Smith ineligible. Well, this was a huge problem, because Smith had done everything the right way. He had the right GPA. He passed his ACT as a junior. He was pretty much the example of what a scholar athlete should be. Unfortunately, the NCAA didn’t deem a French class he had taken while at Columbia to be worthy of credit. The problem was, he was the only athlete being penalized for taking this class. Two more graduating seniors had received their eligibility to play football with the same class. Each of the two years prior, Columbia sent players to major in-state universities with this same French class. So Smith was being punished for doing the right things. Fortunately, Smith was cleared earlier this week and his eligibility is restored. “You hate when bad things happen to good people,” Columbia head coach Brian Allen said. “He did everything he’s supposed to. He’s the prototypical kid. You hate to hear negative things when he’s done everything we have asked of him. A lot of times bad things happen to good people and it’s not corrected. It’s good to see that this time it was.” Smith was available for Northern Arizona’s game against Montana on Saturday that started after press time. This time, the good guys did win.

From staff reports W hile Florida residents have been lucky so far this year, there are still two months remaining in the 2013 Atlantic hur ricane season. Even though there have been only two hurricanes so far this year (Humberto and Ingrid, both category 1), theres always the chance for more. While Columbia County residents tend to see more flooding, the consequences of wind damage and broken windows should not be ignored. Safeguarding windows helps protect against the threat of dangerous glass shrapnel and interior water damage. In order to minimize damage, Columbia County Emergency Management Director Shayne Morgan suggests people use plywood, and not tape, to board up windows and sliding glass doors. Theres been a new initiative from FLASH (the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes), he said. Theyre recommend ing plywood to safeguard against break ing glass. The following guide from FLASH will come in handy for home and business owners whod like to safeguard their property against damaging winds and rain. Plan the Project Count and measure each window and door that has glass including French doors, sliding glass doors as well as sky lights. You might also want to include roof and gable end vents or any opening that if damaged would allow wind to enter your home. Measure each opening horizontally inside the exterior trim and vertically from the sill to the bottom of the top trim. Add eight inches to both the height and width to provide a four-inch overlap on all sides. When measuring a window with an extended sill measure from the top of the sill to the top of the window and add four inches instead of eight. Sheets of plywood are generally 4 feet by 8 feet. This will help determine how many sheets to buy. Be sure to purchase plywood that is 5/8 inch or greater, exterior grade (CDX). Assemble Your Tools and Hardware You will need a circular saw, drill and drill bits, hammer and wrench, work gloves and safety goggles for this project. You will also need an assortment of hardware including bolts, wood or mason ry anchors, nuts and large washers. A range of bolts may be used because different bolts will be needed for wood frame versus masonry homes. Wood Homes use lag screws and plas 1CBIZ FRONT Lake City Reporter Week of Sept.29-Oct 5, 2013 Section C Columbia, Inc. Your marketplace source for Lake City and Columbia County 1CColumbia Inc.

Send it to us with Foolish Trivia on the top and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a nifty prize! There are only a few airplane suppli-ers (think Boeing and Airbus), so if you’re running an airline, it’s difficult to play one against the other, negoti-ating for a great price. Meanwhile, if hospitals need to buy a certain drug, they don’t have many options. When there are many suppliers, they generally have to compete more to win business, and that can lower prices for buyers. s Bargaining power of buyers This is affected by brand power, switching costs, the relative volume of purchases, standardization of the product, and elasticity of demand (where demand increases as prices fall, and vice versa). Wal-Mart can dictate terms to many suppliers because of its size. s Availability of substitutes The cable TV business is threatened by the growth of substitutes such as streaming video. s Competitive rivalry The more competitive an industry is, the more likely you are to have price wars and reduced profitability. Examples include supermarkets, airlines and hotels. Consider these forces, and you might determine that an industry is more or less attractive than you thought. K_\Dfkc\p=ffcKXb\ A Steely StockIf you expect our recovering global economy to boost demand for steel as more construction and infrastruc-ture projects get underway, then you should consider adding steel to your portfolio. Meet Nucor (NYSE: NUE), a compelling steel company. Nucor has grown into the largest U.S.-based steel producer by doing things differently. For starters, none of Nucor’s plants are union-ized. But it still treats its employees well, offering a performance-based compensation plan including profit sharing and a 401(k). (That’s right — no pension.) The company hasn’t laid off an employee for financial reasons in more than 30 years. Unlike its rivals, Nucor has been profitable in almost every year of the past decade, even with a recent over-supply depressing steel prices. Whereas steelmakers typically have huge central facilities, Nucor employs smaller, efficient, locally based mini-mills. It also crafts a lot of steel from scrap metal instead of via metallurgical coal. Nucor recently bought Skyline Steel, specializing in large-scale steel foundations, which will boost its range of operations. With a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio in the 30s, the stock doesn’t appear to be cheap. But those numbers will change as earnings pick up, and Nucor merits at least a spot on your watch list. For patient believers, its dividend recently yielded 3.1 percent. (The Motley Fool’s newsletter ser-vices have recommended Nucor.) TheMotley Fool To Educate, Amuse & Enrich 8jbk_\=ffc Dp;ldY\jk@em\jkd\ek Impatience HurtsI manage my brother’s portfolio and my own. I bought Visa at $110 for the two of us. When it was near $130, I called it quits. Boy, that was dumb — it has recently been near $180. I made my brother continue to hold it, and he’s sitting pretty. Sometimes I feel like I give him better advice than I give myself. There are lots of these examples. I bought 3-D Systems at $33 for my brother after it plummeted, and I sold it for around $40. It’s now near $52. I bought Bank of America at $6.50, watched it fall, and sold it once it returned to $6.50. It hit $15 later. So many future profits missed! I also bought Coffee Holding Co. in 2011 on the recommendation of a CNBC article. I held for a 30 percent loss before I concluded that it was a bad position. Bottom-line lessons? Have confidence in the long-term profitability of the companies you believe in. Ignore the volatil-ity and noise all around you. — G.L., online The Fool Responds: Amen.

By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comG reen veg-etables and grilled, lean meat. Two hours of exercise on a weekly basis, and encourage-ment from approxi-mately 1,400 other employees in the school district. With the start of the new school year, school board member and nurse practitio-ner Stephanie Finnell organized the Wellness Initiative to get district employees thinking about preventative health care. “As a school board member, I care deeply about our employees,” Finnell said. “But as a nurse practitioner and health care provider, I’m aware of the alarm-ing increase in chronic illnesses due to obesity and even smoking, as well as the increase in the rising cost of health care.” Blue Cross, Blue Shield donated money to the district two years ago to create a wellness program, earmarking the funds specifically for that purpose. Until now, the money just sat there — untouched. Slowly the program has been gaining its footing. Finnell planned the initiative over the summer, and it finally had its first meeting this month. About 40 people attended the inaugural presentation held in the Columbia County School Administrative Complex on Sept. 10. She said all the other school board members have been supportive of the program. Since the first meeting, Finnell said she has received good feedback from district employees, adding that everyone seems eager to get results. Finnell plans for the district to eventually be able to offer discounted gym memberships, biggest loser contests, Zumba and cooking classes and camaraderie for local 5K marathons. LIFE Sunday, September 29, 2013 Section D I t was late afternoon when we arrived back in Jacksonville from Chicago and we quickly picked up our luggage in baggage claim. We couldn’t believe it was sitting there waiting on us and that the belt had already stopped. It took a few minutes more to find the car in the garage. Susan Eagle was driving so Sonja Meads and I approached the pas-senger side of the car as Susan made her way around to the driver’s side. As I made my way to the passenger door, I loudly exhaled and uttered a bad explicative and turned around and set my lug-gage down. They couldn’t imagine what I realized I had forgotten when I got to the car. Well I didn’t forget anything. We had a flat tire on the rear passenger side. I couldn’t believe it.

She organized the Wellness Initiati ve, a district-wide plan to help employees become health ier and happier. A healthy start for school workers New programwill focus onprevention. SCHOOLS continued on 2D


I thought what better time to start the program, she said. Its a win-win sit uation because I know our employees are very con cerned about the increas ing premiums. But if we can get our employees healthier, our insurance claims will decrease, and, therefore, the premiums will decrease. The goal will be that our employees will see a decrease in what they are paying out. To keep all the schools and departments active, Finnell called for a repre sentative from each area to be the cheerleader. As of now, she believes she has rallied a person to rep resent each of the schools and departments in the county. Since Finnells pro gram specifically targets district employees, she partnered with other orga nizations, such as Altrusas Get Fit Lake City, to help motivate students to live healthier lifestyles as well. The program can posi tively impact the district by shaping happy, healthy teachers and employees, who can then provide exceptional education and leadership to Columbia County students, she said. In August, Finnell read an article published by the Lake City Reporter list ing Columbia County in the bottom ten healthiest counties in Florida. Out of 67 counties in Florida, Columbia placed 58th in terms of health outcomes and 50th in health factors. She said the results are even more of a reason to do the Initiative. Its a big project, Finnell added. I know peo ple want results, but they have to be active as well. To encourage the dis trict employees to stay on track, Finnell plans to release a monthly well ness tip through a mass e-mail or on Facebook. The program will have its own Wellness Initiative Facebook page in the near future. In the end, wellness comes down the education regardless of a commu nitys size, health statistics or demographics. Overall, we have to get healthier, Finnell said. A lot of us have been brought up in the south. We kind of get stuck in the ways that weve been taught to eat. As a nurse practitioner, I have people come in daily that say, Isnt it okay to eat two sandwiches a day? But the bread is not healthy. The next meeting will be on Oct. 11 at 4 p.m. in room 227 of the Columbia County School Administrative Complex. All district employees are welcome to attend. The vision Finnell has for the program is to create a healthy lifestyle for all employees in the district. She aims to pro mote wellness, but also give support to individuals who want to reach lifetime goals. She encourages the employees to get involved. Without involvement, we arent going to see results, Finnell said. Eventually, preventative health care can reduce peoples risk of chronic disease and, in turn, reduce the cost of health care. Is it going to happen right away? No. Its going to take a few years. But its a start, and you have to start somewhere. 2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2013 Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 2DLIFE there picking up some arriving guests and was glad to help. Apparently Susan picked up a nail somewhere. The tire was quickly changed and we thanked him graciously. We loaded back up with the doughnut (spare tire) on and I noticed it was a little low and knew wed have to stop and put more air in it. As we were leaving the parking garage, we heard a clink ing noise. Susan stopped and I checked the rear of the car and noticed the wire and lock that held the spare in was still lowered and dragging the ground. I went back into the rear of the car to get the tire iron out and wind this back up so it was off the ground. Back on the road, we maintained about 55 mph and realized it would take forever to get home. We stopped at a gas station to fill the doughnut up and I read on the side of the tire that the recommended maximum speed was only 50 mph. We decided to take the back roads home and look for a service station that might still be open. It was a stretch since it was Wednesday night after 6 pm. Not only that, service stations are really a thing of the past, especially now when you can stop at a gas station, pay at the pump and be on your merry way. Finally, in Baldwin, I spotted a tire shop with an OPEN sign lit up. We stopped and asked the attendant if he could plug a tire for us. Well I should have been more specific, because he informed me that his business was for Semi trucks, but hed look at it and if it was a quick fix, hed do it for $10. So we watched him plug the tire and fill it back up with air. When I asked if he was going to change the tire back out he said he didnt have time. In my mind, Im thinking, Whats the point of plugging the nail hole in the tire if youre not putting it back on? So, we double teamed it. Susan started taking the lug nuts off by standing on the tire iron to loosen them as I started jack ing the car back up. I had to use a screw driver because we realized that some where back in the parking garage we lost a part of the jack. I think Sonja was just supervising. Needless to say we got the tire changed back out and were back on the road driving more than 50 mph. On the way back, I heard Susan men tion that her tire light had come on but that she thought it was something else entirely. Moral of the story, if your tire light comes on, check your tires.

TROUBLE: Fixing a flat in Jax Continued From Page 1D SCHOOLS: Wellness Initiative will focus on preventive measures Continued From Page 1D No response? Youre not alone By MARTHA IRVINE AP National Writer CHICAGOTechnology is supposed to make us easier to reach, and often does. But the same modes of communication that have hooked us on the instant reply also can leave us feel ing forgotten. We send an email, a text or an instant chat message. We wait, and nothing hap pens. Or we make a phone call. Leave a voicemail mes sage. Wait. Again, nothing. We tend to assume its a snub, and sometimes it is. Erica Swallow, a 26-yearold New Yorker, says shes heard a former boyfriend brag about how many text messages he never reads. Who does that? she asks, exasperatedly. These days, though, no response can mean a lot of things. Maybe some people dont see messages because they prefer email and you like Twitter. Maybe were just plain overwhelmed, and cant keep up with the constant barrage of com munication. Whatever the reason, its causing a lot of frustration. A recent survey by the Pew Internet & American Life Project found that 39 per cent of cell phone owners say people they know com plain because they dont respond promptly to phone calls or text messages. A third of cell owners also have been told they dont check their phones fre quently enough. It happens in love. It hap pens in business. Tell me to go to hell, but just tell me something! Im getting lonely over here. Thats what Cherie Kerr, a public relations executive in Santa Ana, Calif., jokes shes considered putting after her email signature. It happens in families. Last year, Terri Barr, a woman on Long Island, N.Y., with grown children, sent her son a birthday present a $350 gift certifi cate for a wonderful kayak ing trip for six, lunch, wine, equipment, she says. She sent him an email with the details, but he didnt respond. She says she then telephoned and texted him to tell him it was a present. He eventu ally sent a one-line email, she says, telling her he was too swamped to open her email gift right then. Instant communication can be wonderful but also terrible, says Barr, who shared the story more as a lament of mod ern communication than a reprimand of her son, whose busy work life, she acknowledged, often takes him overseas. So this year, she sent him a birthday gift by snailmail in a box. He actually opened it, she says, and theyve been talking more frequently since then. Many other people, though, sit waiting for responses that never come. Thats where the frus tration lies its in the ambiguity, says Susannah Stern, a professor of com munication studies at San Diego State University. Though we often assume the worst, experts say we shouldnt. Frequently, they say, peo ple simply and unknow ingly choose the wrong way to contact someone. I admit to having often been lax with checking my work number voice mail, which has led to me not responding to people waiting for my reply, says Janet Sternberg, an assis tant professor of communi cation and media studies at Fordham University. Shes also had techni cal glitches. For instance: thinking shed sent a text message to someone over seas and then, when he didnt respond, realizing she had his international number programmed incorrectly in her phone. The sheer manage ment of all these devices and channels is exhausting and sometimes daunting, leaving less and less time for actual communication, Sternberg says. We con nect more but communi cate less, in many ways. Thats why many people say they have no choice but to prioritize and to respond only to the most urgent messages. That describes Mahrinah von Schlegel, whos work ing to launch a Chicagobased incubator that will offer shared office space and other resources for fledgling tech entrepre neurs. People get angry when not answered and send multiple messages, says von Schlegel, the 30-yearold managing director of the firm, known as Cibola. She says missed commu nication has caused her to lose some business deals. Often, its when people try to contact her by Facebook or direct message on Twitter and she doesnt see the messages for days. Email, she says, is her pre ferred mode of communi cation. But even then, she says, there are only so many hours in the day: I still need time to eat and sleep and shower. As she sees it, getting no response even when shes the one unsuccessfully try ing to contact someone is just part of life in a hightech world. A lot of young people say that, so theyve become accustomed to having to try again, or try a differ ent mode of communica tion if something is truly urgent. Tech and communication experts agree that choos ing a primary means of communication, and letting it be known, is one way to improve communication. ASSOCIATED PRESS In this Feb. 7 file photo, Mahrinah von Schlegel, managing director of Cibola, an incubator for tech entrepreneurs that will open this spring, sits at her computer at her office in Chicago.

By JENNIFER FORKER Associated Press I was chopping veg etables for dinner recent ly when my 14-year-old daughter, Grace, disap peared with the unusable end of the bok choy. She returned five minutes later with paper, a stamping ink pad and the pilfered veg etable. Look, Mom, she said, and held up a stunner: The bok choy head, refuse to me, had stamped a beauti ful blooming rose onto the paper. I discovered what some crafters have long known the beauties of stamp ing with food. Part of the pleasure derives from the experimentation, and part from the element of sur prise when an ordinary vegetable imparts a beauti ful image. Kristen Sutcliffe of Oberlin, Ohio, came to love stamping while teaching preschool in Japan, where its popular, she says. Her favorite food tool? Okra. Its so pretty, Sutcliffe says. It looks like a little flower. Heads of bok choy and celery stamp pretty roses. Pull off a stalk of either to stamp U shapes. Peppers, sliced in half and deseed ed, stamp wavy rounds for making flowers. Garlic is the favored stamp of Sarah Raven, pro gram director for a group with the acronym GARLIC (Green Art Recreating Life in Communities) that encourages low-income residents of New Haven, Conn., to make art from recycled items. Garlic, too, can create a delicate flower image. The discovery was part of the thrill, Raven says. I tried to ink the entire garlic and that didnt work, she says. Then she pulled a single clove out of the bulb and realized it looked like a finger and a flower petal. The individual clove becomes a stamping sur face for individual flower petals, Raven says. She also has tried carved potatoes and star fruit cut in half. The latter is a little unwieldy and stinky, she says. Terri Ouellette of Phoenix has a tip for that: Cut and air-dry citrus and other watery fruits and vegetables, sometimes overnight, before working with them, she says. Be watchful because they dry out quickly. Anything with a very high water content does not work very well, says Ouellette, who posts crafts videos to YouTube and her own website, Super Simple with Terri O. What works, she says: apples, oranges and pears. What doesnt: grapes, broc coli and lettuce. Besides celery, Ouellette likes using mushrooms, cauliflower and potatoes. Potatoes can be cut up into anything and turned into a great stamp, she says. You just have to carve in reverse. Marcie McGoldrick, editorial director of holiday and crafts for Martha Stewart Living, has stamped with apple halves, carrots (the ends make polka dots) and radicchio. Radicchio? The cut end of a head of radicchio, like celery and bok choy, makes a version of a rose print. Martha Stewart Living online also recommends trying Brussels sprouts cut in half. The whole venture is trial and error, says McGoldrick. Its really just looking at different things when youre cooking, she says, and then having a printing day. As with other stamping, use a stamp pad or acryl ic paint for stamping on paper. Use fabric-specific acrylic paint for printing on textiles. Sutcliffe recommends soaking a sponge with tem pera (poster) paint or pour ing a thin layer of the paint on a plate and using either as an ink pad. Once your prints are dry, add embellishments, such as stems or leaves, with colored markers or fabric markers, says Ouellette. She has stamped aprons, placemats and tote bags with food. McGoldrick has stamped note cards and gift wrap. Sutcliffe, whose book for kids, Fabric, Paper, Thread, will be published in June by C&T Publishing, prints mostly on paper gift tags and note cards, and small swatches of fabric. Sometimes her 6-year-old daughter joins her. While its a great project for kids, food stamping also can provide attractive art work for the home. McGoldrick recom mends stamping several images of the same veg etables but in complemen tary colors, then framing the series. She also recommends this for gardeners who want to document their harvest artistically.

Rainscaping: an answer to storm runoff By DEAN FOSDICK Associated Press Stormwater runoff can quickly drain a hom eowners wallet. The flooding erodes yards, soaks basements, pollutes streams and wastes a precious resource. But rainscaping an integrated system of directed water flow and settling basins can convert those losses into gains by providing new wildlife habitat, beautifying properties and in some cases providing food for the dinner table. Its becoming a pattern of capture and reuse rather than simply moving the water off, said Pat Sauer, Rainscaping Iowa Program admin istrator. There are more options out there than just rain gardens. Were looking more comprehensively at what can be done on the landscape. Numerous state and local groups are holding workshops and providing rebates for residents who add such refinements to their properties as rain barrels, cisterns, permeable paving, set tling ponds, green roofs and berms. Iowa is providing training for professionals certified rainscapers who are designing some of those programs, Sauer said. Many of these agencies also build largescale infiltration systems projects on public lands, said Cleo Woelfle-Erskine, who along with Apryl Uncapher wrote Creating Rain Gardens. (Timber Press, 2012). Landscapers often merge art with science. In Portland, Ore., many parking lots and curb strips sport swales (depressions) and retention basins, often decorated with sculptures of leap ing fish, Woelfle-Erskine said. Rainscaping, though, can be expensive and complicated. So why bother? A rain garden is not only a beautiful, lowmaintenance, water-saving garden, but can additionally provide habitat and forage for local fauna, sustain select edibles for harvest, reduce pollution, flooding and erosion to nearby rivers and become a daily reminder of the importance of water conservation, Uncapher said. Yards vary, and rainscaping designs must be site specific. Some suggestions: Perk. Conduct a soil test to see if your yard will percolate (drain) rainwater, Sauer said. If it doesnt perk, then all youll be left with is stand ing water. If your yard is hard, like concrete, youll have to improve the soil. Plant native. Prairie plants and woodland seedlings with deep roots help soak up storm water, filter pollutants and recharge groundwa ter levels, Sauer said. Using native plants also helps ensure theyll survive their new setting. Installing a residential rain garden, which is a saucer-like depression in the ground that captures rain from a downspout, driveway or patio, is the simplest and least expensive way to retain stormwater, Woelfle-Erskine said. But heres his kicker: They wont work if your yard is uphill from your house. Use permeable materials like bricks, pav ing blocks or gravel on driveways and walk ways, with spacing that allows water to seep into the soil. Edibles. Berries, asparagus, fiddlehead ferns, fruit trees, winter squash, Brussels sprouts, and culinary and tea herbs can be creative additions in the right rain garden sites, but use them with care. Be aware of where the water is flowing into your rain garden from, Uncapher said. Rain gardens serving to inter sect runoff from potentially polluted surfaces are not ideal for edibles unless soil and water nutrients are tested and monitored. Rain gardens and related rainscaping fea tures give homeowners a chance to be part of the stormwater and pollution solution, while serving aesthetic and functional purposes, said Bob Spencer, RainWise program manager for the City of Seattle. Not only are the gardens attractive landscap ing, they are protecting our water bodies and the creatures that live there, he said.

DEAR ABBY: In response to the Aug. 13 letter from the adoptive mom in Indianapolis, we, too, are sometimes ques-tioned about our son. I don’t find it at all offensive, and I encourage her to view it from a different perspective. Just as mothers enjoy telling stories about their pregnancy and delivery, I relish talking about how our son came to be part of our family. I have talked openly about it to strangers in front of my son since he was a toddler. I tell them how amazing it is that a mother could love her child so much that she would be willing to give him to us so he could have a better life than she could offer. By not shying away from the topic, my son has seen that his adoption doesn’t make us uncomfortable, and as a result, it’s some-thing he is comfortable with. Our son is full of confidence because he knows how much joy he has brought to our lives. -REAL PARENT IN COLORADO DEAR REAL PARENT: My office was flooded with comments from adop-tive parents and adopted children, but not all of them were as positive as yours. “Why do you need to know?” was frequently cited as a way to deflect unwelcome questions about why the biological parents placed the child for adoption, as was, “I’ll forgive you for asking that question if you forgive me for not answering.” My favorite response was, “We don’t discuss such intimacies. Have you told your children the details of THEIR conception?” Readers, thank you all for sharing. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I have been in an on-again-off-again, long-distance relationship with a guy for a year and a half. I have broken up with him and taken him back six times. It is always for the same reason: We are not compatible as a roman-tic couple. I have explained that we would be better as friends, but when I try to leave, he cries and begs me not to go. I’m afraid he could be suicidal, based on past reactions. I love him as a friend and I want him to be with someone who can love him the way he wants to be loved. How do I let him down easy, if there is even such a thing? I’m afraid I might ruin his life. When you know in your gut that things won’t work out, when is it OK to throw in the towel? -PERPLEXED IN PENSACOLA DEAR PERPLEXED: After six breakups, your long-distance romance is well past its expiration date. When there is a lack of chemistry between a couple, it’s no one’s fault and it’s usually a deal-breaker. The problem with letting someone down the way you’re trying to is that it prolongs the pain, like removing a sliver halfway, then jamming it back in because the person is wincing. Threats of suicide if a romance is unsuccessful are attempts to control the partner who wants to leave through guilt. The time to throw in that towel is NOW. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Get out with people you have an emotional con-nection to and you will fig-ure out a way to alter some of the things you don’t like about your life. +++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Emotional problems will surface if you aren’t willing to compromise. A relationship will undergo some unusual changes that can push you into a make-it-or-break-it situation. Make wise choices based on true feelings. Anger won’t help. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Socializing will encour-age you to try new things and get involved in an activity that can alter the way you do things and the direction you take. ++++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Make positive changes, but don’t fall for fast-cash schemes or items that promise the impos-sible. Trust and believe in who you are and what you have to offer and you will develop interesting friend-ships with unusual people. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Deal with emotional issues. Call a family meet-ing or get together with friends who have not been pulling their weight. It’s time to make compromises and listen to complaints. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Include the people best suited to be involved in your plans or who can offer the most in return. Love is on the rise, and making romantic plans can lead to an interesting place filled with happiness and satisfaction. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Rethink your next move. Overreacting will lead to mistakes. Consider what you have to offer and where you are best served to put your skills to work for you. ++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Your intuition is fine-tuned right now and should be your guide regarding domestic and personal situations. Someone may try to con-fuse you emotionally or talk you into something you shouldn’t do, but hold your ground. Follow your gut, not your heart. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take a course or investigate investments or money matters that encourage profits. Don’t rely on secondhand infor-mation. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stand up and be counted and you will be recognized for your knowledge, skills and an unusual contribution you make. Enjoy the moment and don’t feel obliged to make a quick decision if someone puts pressure on you. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Resolve issues before they turn into an emotional mishmash. A money matter or settle-ment will all turn out in your favor.

Grow both varieties to stagger the dates of your harvest. Losing patience?Tips for a quicker vegetable harvestDEAN FOSDICKAssociated PressVegetable gardening is an exercise in patience. Sweet potatoes can take more than 100 days to ripen; some tomato and water-melon varieties require five months. But there are ways to shorten the wait. The easiest is choosing plants that taste best when harvested young. “The one thing you will miss out on with speedy growing is bulk, but what you will get in return is layers of flavor; a sprinkle of hot and peppery micro-green radish here, a sweet and nutty, barely cooked new potato there, a garnish of cucumber-y borage flow-ers to finish a dish,” writes Mark Diacono in the new “The Speedy Vegetable Garden” (Timber Press). “These are the crops that will mark out your cooking as distinctly and unques-tionably homegrown.” Timing is everything.“Be slow to harvest and you’ll miss their best moments,” says Diacono, who does his gardening on a 17-acre plot in Devon, England. “These are fresh, lively and zingy flavors, fla-vors that can either fade or become bitter and overly strong as the plant grows on toward maturity.” Many plants ‚ notably fruits ‚ are genetically wired for late development. “Tomatoes, strawberries and apples all want to be left on the plant until they are fully ripe to get the fullest, lushest flavors out of them,” Diacono says. “Vegetables are a little dif-ferent. Many get woodier, less succulent and lower in sweetness as they grow more mature, so really are at their loveliest picked young.” That would include new potatoes, radishes, baby carrots, zucchini, miniature cucumbers, spring peas, turnips and beets. Cut-and-come-again salad leaves can be clipped in as little as 21 days. Sprouted seeds (mung beans, mus-tard, lentils) can become table fare in just three days. Check the maturity dates on seed packets as you shop. Heirloom tomatoes take 100 days or more to develop while cherry toma-toes need only about 65 days. The same goes for squash. Winter squash (acorn, but-ternut) generally require 110 days before they are kitchen-ready. Summer squash (crookneck, zucchi-ni), by comparison, can be eaten in 55 days or less. There are many ways to jumpstart the growing sea-son so you can be harvest-ing a meal while other gar-deners are just beginning to turn the ground. Among them: • Choose the warmest site possible if you’re plant-ing early. “Even a small change in temperature can make a difference during spring and fall frosts,” says Jo Ann Robbins, an exten-sion educator with the University of Idaho. • Use enclosures. Covering plants moder-ates temperature, wind and humidity. “Air and soil temperatures are warmer, and the cover will conserve heat radiation from the soil during the night,” Robbins says in a fact sheet. • Start vegetable plants inside from seed, and trans-plant them eventually into the garden. “Research shows the older the trans-plants, the better they will resist cold weather,” Robbins says. • Warm the soil early. “Throw a piece of black or clear polyethylene over the soil in early spring, pin it down with tent pegs or bricks, and wait,” Diacono says. “The sun will warm it and excessive water will be kept off, leaving it in a fantastically workable state a few weeks later and conducive to quick plant growth.” Hate cleaning the grill? Hire it outBy AMY LORENTZENAssociated PressNick Escalante enjoys grilling his family’s meals a couple of times a week year-round, but doesn’t like cleaning the greasy mess that comes with it. So he uses a professional grill cleaner. “I really am not a fan of cooking food for my family on a grill that has leftover food from previous uses all over it,” says Escalante, 47, of Mesa, Ariz. “They come and do the dirty work for us.” Proper grill maintenance can make cooking safer and extend the life of your barbecue. Celia Kuperszmid Lehrman, deputy home edi-tor for Consumer Reports, says homeowners can do the job on their own. “There is not some huge skill set here that the aver-age person can’t handle,” she says. Many quality grills sell for between $200 and $300. Doing your best to clean the appliance and then replacing it may be more cost-effective than paying for professional upkeep, she says. Whether you do it yourself or hire an expert, there is some regular upkeep required for your barbe-cue. That includes scraping grates before and after you cook, washing flavorizer bars occasionally, and emp-tying grease traps. Gas grillers should regularly check their propane tank and replace if it has corrosion or dents, and inspect and replace cracked or brittle hoses, Kuperszmid Lehrman advises. Most grill parts, cleansers and tools can be purchased inexpen-sively at home stores. Check the manual to ensure you don’t use any-thing that could void your barbecue’s warranty. Jeffrey Krentzman, founder and owner of The BBQ Cleaner in Hackensack, N.J., recom-mends a professional grill cleaning at the start and end of barbecuing season, or more if you grill year-round. Professional grill cleaners take the barbecue apart; steam, spray or soak the pieces; and use spe-cial tools to scrub in spots the average homeowner may not easily reach. Many use food-safe and environ-mentally friendly products designed for grills. Professional cleaners also advertise their services as making barbecues healthi-er by removing potentially cancer-causing substances from the grill. Those sub-stances are produced when foods are cooked at high heat, and especially when meats are charred. The Department of Agriculture advises preventing flares when barbecuing for added food safety. You can do that by trimming fat, precook-ing to release fatty juices and keeping the barbecue free of greasy buildup.
