By AMANDA WILLIAMSON email@example.com As a nationwide reform on education creates a com mon standard for each grade level, local teachers and Tea Party members seem at odds about how the new program will affect students. Adopted by the Florida Department of Education in 2010, the Common Core State Standards outline a new set of requirements for each student to master before pro gressing to the next grade level, as well as more chal lenging instruction methods for teachers. The standards were devel oped by a coalition of gover nors who wanted to ensure that students transferring across state lines would be at the same level of learning in their new classrooms. They also wanted to emphasize analytical thinking over rote learning and memorization. But some residents of Columbia County, and the nation, believe the new stan dards eliminate parents and teachers from the education equation and force the feder al governments beliefs onto students. The North Central Florida Tea Party, based on informa tion from the Florida Stop Common Core Coalition, compiled a list of critical flaws associated with Common Core, including loss of state and local control of educa tion, psychological manipu lation, diminished parental rights and negative impacts By STEVEN RICHMOND firstname.lastname@example.org At least three dogs have been treated in Lake City in connection to gastrointestinal problems linked to jerky treats from China. Theyre treats from China, usually chicken or duck, Lake City Animal Hospital co-owner Dr. Tracy Hawthorne said. Theyre doing serious kidney damage and other gastrointes tinal problems. Hawthorne said she treated three different dogs in connection to the toxic jerky since late September, with two of them still showing complications from the treats. Unfortunately, no one knows what the toxic principal is, she said. Maybe there are chick en and ducks with high levels of antibiotics that are damaging the dogs kidneys, but no one knows for sure. If we dont know what to look for, its like trying to find a needle in a haystack. BAD JERKY HITS HOME Three local dogs sickened by toxic treats; nearly 600 pets have died nationwide. Unfortunately, no one knows what the toxic principal is. Dr. Tracy Hawthorne, Lake City veterinarian Courtesy Lake City Animal Hospital vets Carey Bailey and Brady Pratt treated Topper and Kyrie for Fanconilike symptoms displayed after the pets ate toxic jerky treats. The Food and Drug Administration issued a warning Tuesday to all pet owners con cerning the recent trend of illnesses and deaths linked to canine jerky products made in China.

Common Core at its core Tea partiers call it federal intrusion; local teachers say it helps kids learn. STANDARDS continued on 6A IS HARD TO BEAT By STEVEN RICHMOND email@example.com L ittle monsters of all shapes and sizes crept twixt the shadows of a crescent moon as Trunk or Treat rolled into downtown Lake City Friday evening. The only thing longer than the 0.8 mile Run for Your Life fun run around Lake DeSoto, organized by Altrusa for their Get Fit Lake City initiative, was the line lead ing children and families to candy that wrapped around sev eral downtown blocks. While waiting, families found warmth from the spinechilling evening air thanks to a small collection of floating fire pits along Lake DeSoto. Batmans, Robins, witches and goblins ambled along side vehicles decorated by Lake Citys spookiest families and businesses. Sets included Holiday Inns skeletal couple reclining on a hotel bed and an eerie jungle scene by First Baptist Church. This is a great place to be on my birthday, in downtown Lake City, seeing everyone have a good time, Mayor Stephen Witt, 62 as of Friday, said to the sugar-fueled crowd of costumed children. I think everything is outstanding. The Chamber of Commerce did an amazing job setting this up. Members of the Starlight Rhythm Section band led children in a series of aerobic exercises to the sounds of Totos Roxanne, helping them burn off excess energy.

By TONY BRITT firstname.lastname@example.org County residents who receive federal assis tance with their food purchases through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), also known as food stamps, will see a reduction in their monthly benefits next week. As part of the federal stimulus, the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act tem porarily increased the maximum SNAP amount to provide larger benefits to recipients during the recession. The temporary increase will end Nov. 1. Suzanne Edwards, Chief Operating Officer of the Catholic Charities Lake City Regional office, said all SNAP beneficiaries were notified online or by letter within the last 60 days that benefits were going to be reduced. People are fully aware and hopefully have been making budget arrangements, she said. According to U.S. Department of Agriculture documents, one person receiving the benefit will have their payments reduced by $11 per month; a family of two will have their benefits reduced by $20; for a family of three the cut will be $29 a month; for a family of four the cut will be $36 a month and for a family of five the cut will be $43 per month. The SNAP program has always not paid for all of the families food costs its just a supplement to help those families in need, STEVEN RICHMOND /Lake City Reporter SNAP benefits decrease Nov. 1 By STEVEN RICHMOND email@example.com County staff said they are working on a salary survey that may lay the groundwork for wage adjustments to a number of county employees annual incomes. County Manager Dale Williams and staff are busy extrapolating data from simi larly-sized counties in order to highlight which of Columbia Countys 506 workers are in need of a corrective action plan if they are a certain number of percentage points under a yet-to-be-determined acceptable living wage. What were trying to do is determine where we are with like or similar counties with all of our positions across the board, Williams said. Then, based on the ones that may have the greatest differen tial, those may be the ones the commission may try to identify and create some cor rective action plan for. Commissioner Ron Williams said the sur vey will help the board decide which indi viduals were around three or four percent below where they should be and facilitate a possible budget amendment process to raise the base pay for those individuals. The survey will include assessments of staff under both the board of commis sioners and the constitutional offices, such as the sheriffs office and supervisor of elec tions. We want to be fair and do the assessment county wide, Ron Williams said. We havent had any county wide studies for the past 10 or 12 years. Its been a good while. According to both Ron and Dale Williams, county staff Survey may lay groundwork for higher wages TREAT continued on 8A WAGES continued on 6A SNAP continued on 6A By the numbers: Individual trunks: 30 Mondy spent on candy: $5,000 Number of attendees: 10,000 Pieces of candy: 100,000 See more pictures, 8A Estimates courtesy Chamber of Commerce JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Trunk-or-Treaters try to come down from a sugar high on Friday.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS AROUND FLORIDA Friday: 4-17-25-38-19 Friday: 3-17-27-31-36 Saturday: Afternoon: 1-2-5 Saturday: Afternoon: 7-9-1-1 Wedne sday : 4-5-8-13-27-44-x2 Man fatally shot by police at hospital ST. PETERSBURG O fficials say police fatally shot a man at a St. Petersburg veterans hospital. A Bay Pines VA Medical Center spokesman says a man walked into the emergency room Friday evening and became unco operative. The man report edly began waving a knife around, which prompted Veterans Affairs police officers to shoot him. The man was wounded and later died. The man wasnt immedi ately identified, and it was unclear how many officers fired on him. The hospital spokesman says the emergency room was evacuated out of an abundance of caution. Man arrested over Michigan murder CLEARWATER Florida deputies have arrested a 27-year-old suspect in a shooting that left one man dead in Michigan. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office executed a search warrant Saturday at about 1:45 p.m. at a home in Clearwater, about 20 miles west of Tampa. Authorities say Alex John Parker Jr. of Flint, Michigan, was wanted for shooting two men in Flint on Oct. 12. Parker allegedly shot the men in retaliation after one of them shot him sev eral weeks before. Two warrants were issued for his arrest, one for homi cide and the other for attempted homicide. Investigators devel oped leads indicated he could be staying at a residence in Clearwater. Early Saturday, a SWAT team entered the home and found Parker hiding underneath a bed. Detectives say Parker has a long criminal history. Caseworkers fired after 3-yr-old dies FORT MYERS Two child welfare caseworkers have been fired following the death of a 3-year-old boy in southwest Florida. The Lee County Sheriffs Office says 45year-old Donella Trainor tightly wrapped Michael McMullen in a blanket Saturday as a type of punishment and put him face down in a crib as he screamed to be released. When she went to check on the boy, he didnt respond. Trainor and two others in the house were charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child. Three other children living with Michael were placed in foster care. Child welfare officials said the family was known to them and was receiv ing services at the time of Michaels death, according to Department of Children and Families spokeswom an Terri Durdaller. The caseworkers were subcontractors of Childrens Network of Southwest Florida, which handles fos ter care for DCF. Lutheran Services CEO Sam Sipes told The NewsPress the caseworkers violated policies. While these policy vio lations did not cause the death of Michael, LSF will not rest until all questions are answered so we can ensure the safety of chil dren in our care, Sipes said. As an organization, we are working side by side with law enforcement and state authorities to get to the bottom of how Michael died. Baez: sheriff is bully in bully case LAKELAND An attorney for a 12-year-old Lakeland girl charged with stalking related to the bul lying of a classmate who committed suicide says the sheriff who filed the charges is the bully in the case. Jose Baez said Friday that Sheriff Grady Judd has been making the media rounds after filing the charge at the expense of his client. Baez says his client is a child and that hes not going to allow the judicial system to bully her. Baez is best known for repre senting Casey Anthony during her 2011 murder trial. Judd told Orlando televi sion station WFTV that the evidence against Baezs client is clear. The girl and a 14-yearold schoolmate were arrested last week. Judd says they were primarily responsible for bullying Rebecca Sedwick. SEATTLE R eggie Rogers, a first-round NFL draft pick whose career stalled after he was sentenced to prison for a car crash that killed three teenagers, has died. He was 49. The King County Medical Examiners Office said Friday it didnt have an immediate cause of death for Rogers, who died Thursday, because toxicology reports were pending. The Seattle Police Department was the inves tigating agency on the case, but a spokesman for the department declined to comment about Rogers, citing a policy to not identify victims. The former University of Washington defensive lineman had a troubled life and was arrested this month for investigation of domestic violence assault. His wife told police he hit her on the head with a flash light in an argument about his drink ing. Rogers had pleaded not guilty. Orlando Bloom, Miranda Kerr announce split NEW YORK The marriage of actor Orlando Bloom and model Miranda Kerr has ended even as Bloom tackles one of the most romantic roles in history, Romeo. Publicist Robin Baum released a joint statement Friday that said Kerr and Bloom two of the most beau tiful people on the planet have been amicably separated for the past few months and recently decided to formalize their separation after six years together. The 36-year-old actor, who starred in The Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean films, and the 30-year-old supermodel were married in 2010. They have a 2 1/2 year-old son, Flynn. Bloom is making his Broadway debut as Romeo in director David Leveauxs revival of Shakespeares Romeo and Juliet opposite Condola Rashad. Kerr, a top Victorias Secret model, first met Bloom backstage at a lingerie fashion show in New York in 2006. Police question driver on museum steps PHILADELPHIA Police say theyve questioned the driver of a car seen going down the Philadelphia Museum of Art steps made famous in the movie Rocky. Videos posted online show the BMW convertible slowly making its way down the long, wide staircase at about midnight Thursday before speeding off. Photographer HughE Dillon runs the local entertainment website PhillyChitChat.com and lives nearby. He posted one of the videos online. The district attorneys office says the car caused about $8,000 in dam age to the steps and prosecutors have approved a felony charge of criminal mischief against the driver. Police say they wont charge the driver until they can determine if a mechanical problem was to blame. The drivers name hasnt been released. The steps have become a popular tourist attraction since Sylvester Stallone run up them in Rocky. 2 stars in sync on NBCs The Blacklist NEW YORK They set The Blacklist in Washington, but in truth it inhabits a Manhattan studio where Law & Order lived for two decades. Judging from its out-of-thegate robust ratings, good reviews and swift full-season pickup, this new NBC crime thriller could be settling in for a long stay of its own. World-class criminal Reddington surrendered to authorities to help them catch the high-profile outlaws he used to assist. Even more puz zling, he has agreed to switch sides on the strict condition that he only deals with rookie FBI profiler Liz Keen. These unlikely partners are played by James Spader and Megan Boone, and an all-important chemistry between them clicked right away, like the rest of the series, which arrived last month with remarkable sure-footedness, spared any hint of new-show confusion and doubt.

Shelli Anne Fletcher, 30, worked for a Lake City doc tors office for seven years before the head prac titioner received reports from CVS Pharmacy about several suspicious prescriptions with his signature, accord ing to a Friday morning LCPD release. An investigation by LCPD Investigator Craig Strickland revealed Fletcher filled at least 43 fradulent prescriptions for oxycodone, hydrocodone and adderall since Sept. 1, 2011, the release said. Further investigation indicated Flethcer phoned in several of the prescrip tions and even imperson ated other staff members at Dr. David Fanneys office in order to have them filled, police said. The same day authori ties discovered the fraud, Flethcer called CVS to inquire about the status of her prescriptions and was told the orders were denied, the release said. Fletcher did not return to work and could not be located by authorities until the Lafayette County Sheriffs Office made con tact with her at her Mayo home, according to LCPD and Lafayette County Sheriff Brian Lamb. Fletcher was arrested and booked into Columbia County Detention Facility on $215,000 bond Tuesday, although LCPD withheld most information on the case until Friday. She faces 43 counts of prescription fraud, 43 counts of insurance fraud, 25 counts of forging a sig nature for a prescription and 23 counts of theft (of prescription sheets).

By AVALYN HUNTER Special to the Reporter T his years national Red Ribbon Week campaign, which runs October 23-31, will get a spooky twist at Fort White High School thanks to creative thinking by students in the schools leadership classes. Since the end of the campaign falls on Halloween, the students wanted something that tied in with that, said Deidre Houk, the schools activity director. They came up with a terrific idea that will involve both the middle and high school students and get them thinking about why they want to say no to drugs. Student volunteers from the Student Government Association and Future Farmers of America will be working today to decorate both the middle and high school campuses with red ribbons, graveyards and road signs reinforcing the anti-drug message and this years Red Ribbon Week theme, A Healthy Me Is Drug Free! Both the middle and high school cafeterias will also have pledge walls where students can sign a pledge against drug use, tobacco use and underage drinking. Each student who signs will receive a red ribbon or sticker that can be worn throughout the day. National Red Ribbon Week concludes on Halloween, and that provided the spark for a special highlight to the weeks activities. On Thursday, the Grim Reaper will be stalking classes on both cam puses throughout the day, selecting a total of 34 stu dents randomly chosen from a pool of volunteers. Each student chosen will be given a sign to wear about his or her neck, warning their fellow students of the dangers of using drugs, tobacco and alcohol. While wearing their signs, the selected students will not be allowed to talk to other students or interact socially, though they will continue attending their classes. We call it the Reaper Silence, Houk said. The idea is to give students a visual picture of how many people are affected when someone dies as a result of these bad deci sions. Statistics show that in a school the size of ours 1,204 students 34 can be expected to die within a year as a result of drug use, tobacco use, or under age drinking. We are hop ing that when students see these silenced students people they know in their classrooms and on the walkways, they will bet ter understand the real-life consequences of not say ing no to drugs. The Grim Reapers jour ney through the school will conclude with an inschool TV broadcast from Fort White High Schools media center on Thursday afternoon. The broadcast will feature interviews with Fort White principal Keith Couey, the Reaper, and the silenced students, with the hope that seeing all 34 victims together will provide a lasting visual image of the death and loss caused by substance abuse. Fort Whites Red Ribbon Week activities will con clude with a Red Rally on Friday, at which students and faculty will wear red to show their support for remaining drug-free and to cheer on the Indians varsity football team in the district championship against Taylor County. THANK YOU We would like to thank you if you came by to visit, sent a card, or left a thoughtful online message, brought food and prayed for comfort. Words cannot express how much we appreciated your support during a May God bless each of you. The Family of George L. Green Red Ribbon week gets a spooky twist at Fort White High We call it the Reaper Silence. The idea is to give students a visual picture of how many peo ple are affected when someone dies as a result of these bad decisions. Deidre Houk, Fort White High Schools activity director
A bill, advocated by President Jose Pepe Mujica, that has passed Uruguays lower house and is expected to soon pass the Senate would, according to The Associated Press, make Uruguay the first country in the world to license and enforce rules for the production, distribution and sale of marijuana for adult consumers. But in addition to acting as a test case for national legalization of mari-juana, Uruguay will also test another longstanding subject of drug policy debate: Will a free market in marijuana only push drug smugglers and dealers into smuggling and traffick-ing in more expensive, addictive and lethal kinds of drugs? It looks like well find out one way or the other. To the Editor:America is faced with a new danger that our country has never faced before. Our federal govern-ment has become unbelievably cor-rupt, and daily strives to take away our Christian faith and more and more of the freedoms that our fore-fathers promised to us in the con-stitution. The government has been able to succeed at this because the administration is counting on the majority of the people in America to be uninformed or just plain stupid. I fear that stupidity is the greater number. Wake up people, we are in serious trouble; America is on the verge of collapse. The administration is blaming the Republicans for everything that is wrong in Washington. President Obama is blaming the Republicans for the government shutdown. Hello people, the Republicans have not controlled anything in Washington for the past five years! The President closed down the government, no one else. If he were really concerned about the economy or government shutdown would he have spent 100 million dollars of our taxes so that he and his family could vacation in Africa? He continues to allow the IRS to spend millions of our tax dollars to party, and give themselves bonuses and perks in exchange for harassing individuals that disagree with him politically; by the way, he continues to allow these practices. He was prepared to spend billions of dollars on a war with Syria, a war that is none of our business. Both factions in this war have an ultimate goal of the total destruction of our country. Everyone needs to pay attention to what is going on in Washington, and what it is doing to our lives. About Obamacare, if it is such a great thing for the American people why are members of the administra-tion, the Supreme Court and mem-bers of Congress and their aides all exempt? That one is easy enough to answer ... because it is a terrible law and they dont want any part of it affecting their lives. Many people that are paid an hourly wage are going to have their work schedules reduced to 30 hours or less per week. How will that help the hourly wage people in our country that actually work? Many politicians at the top of the power chain in Washington fight daily to block freedom of the news media. The government only wants Americans to hear what it approves. I am inclined to believe that the rea-son the administration is so angry with Edward Snowden is because he spilled the beans on much of the corruption that exists, and contin-ues to exist in the administration. Washington spends a vast amount of money hiding the truth from the American people. We are rapidly moving toward governments like Iran, Cuba and North Korea. There the govern-ments are known as dictatorships. Countries all over the world are revolting because of the corruption in their governments; I fear that America is on a collision path for such a travesty. Is that what you really want for our country? God forbid. Edward HunterLake City T he Grim Reaper will stalk the halls of Fort White High on Thursday, but thankfully wont be collecting any actual souls. The Reaper appears as part of Red Ribbon Week, which is designed to raise awareness of the dangers of sub-stance abuse by teens and which ends, appropriately enough, on Halloween. The idea for the Reaper was hatched by students in the schools leadership classes, and its a good one. All day Thursday, the Reaper will roam both the high school and middle school campuses, selecting 34 students at random from a pool of volunteers. Once chosen, the students may not speak for the rest of the day, except to interact with instructors. School officials call it Reaper Silence.The point is to illustrate the human toll substance abuse takes on the young of our society. At the end of the day the students, along with the Reaper and Principal Keith Cooey, will appear on closed circuit TV to talk about the experience. Its not easy to convince young people they arent invincible, and that alcohol, drugs and tobacco can, in fact, do them deadly harm. If this little piece of theatrics does the trick for even one south county student, it will have been well worth it. Good work, Fort White High.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2013 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-04246Aon the teaching profession. We have competent people in the classroom and competent people on the school boards, said Lane Watkins of Lake City, a member of the North Central Florida Tea Party. But now each one of us is going to pay the federal government to implement what we have competent people to do. A local state lawmaker says its not that simple. Its not a black and white issue, said Representative Elizabeth Porter (R Lake City). There are parts [of Common Core] that we can use, and there are parts that we absolutely dont want to participate in. According to Porter, vice-chair of the Education Committee of the Florida House of Representatives, Gov. Rick Scott wants to pick parts from Common Core that best reflect Floridas education policies and its students, then dis-card the parts that might be a federal intrusion. Even though Porter has yet to see any federal intru-sion in Floridas current Common Core implemen-tation, she does not want to be required to use feder-ally mandated textbooks or teaching methods should the issue ever arise. If you just read the standards, theres noth-ing in there from the fed-eral government that says you must do this or that, she said. So Im not sure where they are making that assumption. But just to be proactive as a state, were saying that we will not yield to federal mandates on the way we will educate our students. But so far the standards have remained just that, standards, separate from the curriculum and resourc-es Columbia County teach-ers decide to use to impart the new lessons to their students. In the classroomSecond-grade Summers Elementary teacher Keryn Breeden believes the point of Common Core is to engage her students in their own learning. On Friday, she wrote a math problem on the dry-erase board, 52 7, and then instructed her students to solve the problem by breaking the numbers into their number bonds. Sitting in a circle in front of the board, the students separated the 52 into two numbers: 42 and 10. They then subtracted seven from ten, and added the solution of three to the 42. The answer, 45. Nearly the entire class got the question right. I used to talk all the time and now they get to talk to each other, Breeden said, gesturing to her group of second-graders. She might be able to explain something to him better than I can, and the kids learn by explaining. But according to Watkins, the standards are deficient and the organizers behind Common Core have dumb-ed down the requirements for each grade level. A let-ter drafted by the Tea Party reads that Jason Zimba, one of the chief drafters of the Common Core math standards, told the crowd at a Massachusetts State Board of Education meet-ing that the standards only prepare students to enter a community college, not a university. Yet, its possible federal intrusion that seems one of the biggest concerns to the Tea Party, even though Porter and Breeden do not believe there is currently any federal encroachment on local education. The federal intrusion aspect to me, thats the third straw, Watkins said. We have cost, the weak standards and then we have the federal intrusion. ... One, two, three strikes, and youre out. Learning stylesOne problem the Tea Party has with Common Core is that it believes the new program takes a cookie cutter approach to teaching. I just favor an education system where students are allowed to flourish and teachers are allowed to be flexible, challenge the stu-dents and work with them on an individual basis, Watkins said. According to Kitty McElhaney, assistant superintendent for curricu-lum, assessment, account-ability, technology and pro-fessional development, the standards do not mean the teachers cannot instruct above and beyond what is listed for each grade. She said the standards also do not specify how the teach-ers must create their curriculum. Each student learns differently, and Common Core still allows teachers to include different modali-ties of learning into their daily instruction. McElhaney visited four fifth-grade classrooms over the past week. Each teacher was teaching the same les-son plan, but through dif-ferent techniques and skills that best accommodated her style and her students. Retinal scans, data miningAnother concern of Watkins, the local Tea Party and the Florida Stop Common Core Coalition is the presence of data mining in the standards. However, McElhaney said data-driven instruction has always been present in the school system, and that it is not a part of Common Core. As for a belief that the federal government will be imparting religious and political beliefs to students nationwide, McElhaney said: Theres a separation of church and state. Were state. But the Tea Party continues to question whether students privacy is violated under Common Core. Many members believe the new standards will lead schools to store data on students religious and political affili-ations, as well as biometric data including fingerprints and retinal scans. The con-cern began in Polk County, but quickly spread. The Florida Department of Education, in a fact sheet labeled Demystifying the Movement, said Polk County was in fact piloting a new school bus safety program that involved eye scanning and had nothing to do with Common Core. Permission slips were mis-takenly not sent out. The Common Core standards are academic stan-dards and require no use of biometric monitoring or monitoring of any kind, the Florida DOE states. It continues by adding the only information that will be collected by the state and local governments is the same information that was collected before Common Core was implemented, such as name, birthdate, gender, grade level and bus number. The FDOE does not collect or maintain informa-tion on students religion, political party affiliation, biometric information, etc. that some have listed as possible areas of concern, it says. The FDOE does not plan to collect this infor-mation as it is irrelevant to students education.Fear of federal intrusionJohn Lacquey of Branford, a member of the North Central Florida Tea Party, does not want Floridas children to be influenced by the feds. He believes education in the United States has declined compared to the rest of the world since the creation of the federal Department of Education in 1979. Im not educated on the test or the standards, he said. I just know who is doing it. And when the wrong people are involved, good things are not going to happen. ... Its like building a house on sand. But Trevor Tyler, a science teacher at Columbia High School, said he believes the students are getting a good founda-tion. Common Core means Florida is aligned with 44 other states in the nation, and that a Lake City stu-dent will get the same edu-cation if she or he moves to Houston, New York or Boston. We must allow our students to think, not just give them information and ask them to recall it, he said. The goal is to create problem solvers. Though science is not yet under the umbrella of Common Core, Tyler includes ideas from the new standard in his lesson plans. Much like Breedens second-grade classroom, the change in Tylers les-sons means he is now the facilitator of learning instead of simply a lecturer. He allows the students to pursue knowledge through textbooks, labs and discus-sions, he says. But he steps in when a student struggles to grasp the content or has a question. You cant say enough about what a teacher does every day to differentiate for every student, Tyler said. And a computer you plop students in front of, unless it has feelings well, it would be tough for it to do that. Breeden and her fellow second-grade Summers teacher Jerri Stevens like Common Core. Though both think it is different than Next Generation State Standards and know it requires more work on their part, they believe it offers better instruction for the children. Common Core allows them to teach the why and the how behind the questions, when so much instruction before was lim-ited to rote memorization because of time constraints, they say. Fewer standards are required for the earlier grades, but a deeper under-standing must be accomplished, Stevens said. I have heard teachers say they are against Common Core, she said. But I think that was in the beginning before we learned more about it. ... I really think people are get-ting the wrong information somehow. are considering those initial piecemeal adjust-ments because an across-the-board wage increase wont be feasible. I just think Columbia County has gotten to the point that its not feasible to do across the board raises every year, Dale Williams said. I also think its pretty obvious since 08 that the county just does not have a growth in the tax roll that supports that type of thing. He did note that the future outlook for county finances was tentatively optimistic, considering $100,000 of growth report-ed over the past yearthe first time in four years that has happened, he said. Ron Williams floated the idea of implementing a grouping program in the future that would raise wages for arbitrary group-ings of employees every year. We could divide the county into three groups, Ron Williams said. The first group would get a raise this year, the sec-ond group the second year, then the third, then start all over after three years. We are working on the adjustments first, get them where they need to be. Then you need to worry about the annual cost of living increase. He said it was too early to say how those groupings would be chosen, such as by tenure, department or merit. He also said employ-ees over the average salary levels would not see deduc-tions in their base pay due to the surveys results. Weve collected a lot of data, Dale Williams said. Were going to take that data and assimilate it into a usable form. Were going to build spread-sheets and do compari-sons and analyses so peo-ple can look at it and draw conclusions. Dale Williams said commissioners asked for the presentation by November with the hope of making initial adjust-ments by the first meeting of December. If county commissioners decide to make adjust-ments after reviewing the data prepared by Dale Williams and staff, chang-es will come in the form of one or more budget amendments. If there is a deficiency, we will address it from an educated standpoint, Ron Williams said. Its like build-ing anythingYou have to get the foundation first, then you start doing everything else. The survey is the foun-dation of what were trying to do for the employees of Columbia County. Edwards said. It never pays for all of the food that would be required for a household. She said to offset the benefit loss SNAP recipients will have to get a job, cut their budgets, find extra work or cut non-essential spending. Edwards said Catholic Charities numbers have been on the rise for the 12 months with-out the cuts a trend that has been continuing for the last four years. This reduction in benefits will take place Friday, Edwards said. Its going to take effect and people are going to feel the bite and if the person who receives the SNAP benefit does not take it seriously, I think they will be sadly coming up short at the end of the month. We may not see it the first week, but towards the end of November I think well see that and unfortunately thats right around the Thanksgiving period. I think the impact will truly be seen towards the end of November and it will fall into December. Edwards said come midDecember, she anticipates people being hit hard by the reduction. As each month goes it will compound, she said. Today, without the reduction, the last 10 days of each month we see an increase of people and families coming to our agency because their supplement assistance has run out because theyve used all of their food money. Weve experienced that for a good two years, where at the end of the month people do not have ample food. In addition, due to the government shutdown, the USDA, which provides food to Catholic Charities and the Gateway Food Bank, did not ship any provisions for just over two weeks. Over the last four months, weve been seeing a reduction in the amount of government food thats been coming out to the counter, Edwards said. Already Catholic Charities was having to think outside of the box and do different things to garner more food because of the requests (for services) with 45 percent more people walking through our doors and through the reduction of food and inventory, it puts us at a deficit.... Its hard to say to people who are hungry, Im sorry we dont have. Thats a hard thing to go home at night and worry about those children, elderly, families, individuals and the homeless individuals that were not able to assist at the magnitude at which weve done so in the past. The FDA has not executed an official recall of the products, instead issu-ing a warning to pet own-ers about recent trends in illnesses linked to the Chinese jerky products beginning in 2007. Many of the brands that mar-ket such products remain on shelves throughout Columbia County. Hawthorne said her patients were showing symptoms similar to Fanconi syndrome, a dis-ease affecting tubules in the kidneys that causes glucose, amino acids, phosphate and bicarbon-ate to pass through the animals system. In other words, all the materials vital to the canines health are being passed directly to the urine. These dogs showed lethargy, lack of appetite, some vomiting, increased water consumption and urination, Hawthorne said. These are the first ... cases Ive seen so far. Hawthorne recommended owners take their pets to have bloodwork and a urinalysis done immediately, since symp-toms may not manifest for several weeks following initial consumption of the treats. Vets treat severe cases with immediate IV fluid and medication, eventu-ally easing into a series of oral supplements that could take several months to correct the dogs fluid balance. Were working to replace the things being lost from these damaged kidneys, she said. The kidney has to do its heal-ing on its own. Im simply replacing things that have been lost. The FDA issued a warning Tuesday to pet own-ers that approximately 3,600 dogs and 10 cats have shown complications in connection to Chinese jerky treats in the U.S. since 2007. According to the release, about 580 of those cases resulted in death. This is one of the most elusive and mysterious outbreaks weve encoun-tered, FDAs Center for Veterinary Medicine Director Bernadette Dunham said. Our beloved four-legged com-panions deserve our best effort, and we are giving it. The FDA requested owners of animals affect-ed by toxic jerky and veterinarians who treat them to report incidents to www.safetyreporting.hhs.gov. Bill would kill Common CoreBy AMANDA WILLIAMSON The North Central Florida Tea Party, along with the Baker County Tea Party, the OBrien Tea Party and the American Tea Party of Hamilton County, support legisla-tion to stop Common Core in Florida through House Bill 25. The bill, filed by state Rep. Debbie Mayfield (R-Vero Beach), would halt the implementation of Common Core until a series a criteria are met: The state board of education holds at least one public hearing in each congressional district of the state... where public testimony is taken on the imple-mentation of Common Core standards; A fiscal analysis of the projected cost of implementation is presented to the state board; Before adoption, the state must compare the standards to other nationally recognized standards of s tudent achievement. State Rep. Elizabeth Porter (R-Lake City) says the bill goes too far. I support the approach taken by the gov-ernor, speaker of the House and Senate president, she said. Rather than deny everthing, we should take the parts that are good, but refuse to implement any feder-ally-intrusive parts of Common Core.

7A Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2013 7A By JIM TURNERThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE As the states dependence on natural gas grows, regula-tors on Thursday backed plans by Florida Power & Light to build a two-sec-tion, 591-mile Alabama to Indiantown natural-gas pipeline project. The project had generated controversy in Columbia County when the proposed route would have placed it under the Ichetucknee River. However, plans were changed to avoid the river. Public Service Commission member Eduardo Balbis praised the project as helping the states fuel diversity by reducing the chance of sup-ply interruptions and price fluctuations. The project will add a third major pipe-line bringing natural gas to power plants and other customers. I believe this is a good project, Balbis said. Adding this pipeline, hav-ing a third come into the state, were going to contin-ue to rely on natural gas and this achieves that mitigation against price fluctuations. Commissioner Julie Brown added that the need for additional fuel in Florida is indisputable at this time. The project involves two interconnecting pipelines, with one bringing natural gas into the state and the other stretching southeast of Orlando. Permitting is underway for both sections of the project. While additional approvals are still needed from state and federal agen-cies, the main one being the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, construction remains on schedule to begin in 2016. The pipelines, which will boost Floridas natural gas capacity by about 25 per-cent, are expected to be operational in May 2017, said FPL spokeswoman Sarah Gatewood. The two pipelines are expected to cost a com-bined $3.5 billion. The proj-ect is projected to require 6,600 jobs to build. Another pipeline project was rejected by the Public Service Commission in 2009. The 2009 proposal was directly backed by FPL and would have primar-ily served the Juno Beach-based company. The project now involves FPLs parent company, NextEra Energy, partnering with Spectra Energy Corp. in a venture called Sabal Trail Transmission LLC. Sabal Trail will build a $3 billion, 465-mile pipe-line that will travel from Southwest Alabama through Georgia to Osceola County in Central Florida. Florida Southeast Connection, a separate sub-sidiary of NextEra, will build the second section, run-ning 126 miles south from Osceola County to an FPL plant in Indiantown in west-ern Martin County. The cost of that section has been put around $550 million. The current proposal will bring about 1 billion cubic feet of natural gas a day into the state. Well be renting part of that capacity, but not all of it, Gatewood said. FPL will purchase about 400 million cubic feet a day when the pipelines open. The daily amount is sched-uled to grow to 600 million cubic feet a day in 2020. Utilities have increasingly shifted in recent years to natural gas from burn-ing coal and oil. Powering plants with natural gas is cleaner, which helps utili-ties meet environmental standards, but gas also has been relatively inexpensive --a situation that utilities expect to continue with the extraction of gas from shale formations in various parts of the country. Currently, FPL uses 1.5 billion to 2 billion cubic feet of natural gas a day sup-plied by the two existing pipelines, one owned by Florida Gas Transmission Company, LLC, and the other owned by Gulfstream Natural Gas System, LLC. Overall, nearly 68 percent of the states electric generation, and more than 72 percent of FPLs total energy, comes from natural gas. As part of the approval on Thursday, the commission agreed to review the pru-dence of the actual trans-portation costs during its annual cost recovery clause hearings.Regulators approve FPL pipeline plansBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA n alternative to Halloweens Trick-or-Treating where chil-dren and their families can enjoy an evening out together con-tests, candy and costumes will be the focus of the 10th annual Christ Central Family Fall Fest. The fall festival will take place on the Christ Central property, around the churchs sanctuary on Dyal Road in central Columbia County from 5-9 p.m. Thursday. Were expecting close to 15,000 people to attend, said Leilani Dagley, Christ Central office man-ager and facilities director. We will have loads of candy, hayrides, easy parking, miniature pony rides and bounce houses. In addition representatives from the Columbia County Sheriffs Office, Lifeguard Ambulance Service, the LifeSouth Bloodmobile, and Life Flight helicopter will be on site with booths. There will also be several booths with each booth advertising its business or service, but handing out candy to children. We try to offer families an alternative to trick or treating, Dagley said. We have businesses from within the church and people from the community that come out and have a candy booth. They advertise whatever they make and show it in their booth and they also have lots of candy to give to the children as they come by. There will also be vendors on hand selling products that theyve made. Dagley said at least 35 vendors are slated to participate in the event with their booths. The theme for this years event is Whos Your Hero? Booths will be decorated to the theme during the event and the winner of the Best Booth Award will get a prize. The event will also feature live entertainment and several contests. There will be a spooky pooches contest for small puppies, Dagley said. There will also be a childrens costume contest for different age groups. At least 12 entertainers are slated to compete in a talent contest where the winner is also slated to get a prize. Fall festival: Trick-or-treat alternative COURTESYLori Koon stands still as Teppi Hardin (center) and Ch ristina Curtis (right) adjusts her wings before deliveri ng a performance in the Heaven room at Christ Central Ministries Family Fa ll Fest last year. A lighter twist to Halloween but theres still ca ndy By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comSaturday morning local residents make a conscien-tious effort to make their homes safer by doing one simple thing removing unwanted and expired pre-scription drugs. Representatives from the Columbia County Sheriffs Office and Lake City Police Department collected thousands of pills, vitamins, ointments and other unwanted prescrip-tion medications in con-junction with the Seventh National Drug Take Back Day across the country. The Lake City Police Department conducted its program where residents brought their unwanted medications to the Lake City Public Safety building. The meds were given to police department person-nel and taken to a secure room for storage. Officer Staci Brownfield said residents brought enough medication to fill two boxes, approximately 150 200 bottles containing expired medications. The reason its important to have the Prescription Drug Take Back Day is to get unused prescrip-tions that could fall in the hands of children and to get them off the streets because medication thats used by people thats not prescribed can cause dev-astating and disastrous effects, she said. The Columbia County Sheriffs Office had depart-ment personnel, a deputy and two Columbia County Sheriffs Office Citizen Service Patrol units on hand at the Park and Ride off US 90 to collect the medical rubbish. The group collected several hundred bottles of pills before lunch. Mark Pentolino, Columbia County Sheriffs Office pub-lic information officer, said the event went well. We had more expired drugs here than I thought we would, he said. Its not been a huge turnout, but weve collected almost two full-sized 30-gallon bags of prescription drugs and were still here for another two hours. Eighty-one pounds of old drugs were collected in all on Saturday. Pentolino said most of the people ridding themselves of the expired medi-cation, seemed to approve of the program. For the most part it seems like its been senior citizens and theyve been saying theyve actually been looking for a place to destroy or get rid of some of these old prescrip-tion drugs they have, Pentolino said. He said one woman relayed a story to him of how she went back to her doctor and her pharmacist trying to give the expired prescription medication back because she didnt know what to do with it and was turned away. This is a great event to hold for the community that gives them a place to get rid of these expired prescription drugs, Pentolino said. This event is good because some of the prescription drugs can be harmful if you flush them down the toilet. If theyre sent off to landfills, we dont know what could happen environmentally. I know the DEA will do the right thing when they dispose of it. The pills from the Columbia County Sheriffs Office collection site were taken to the police depart-ment after the event and collected by DEA for prop-er disposal by the end of the day Saturday.

We were worried senior night at Columbia High School would cut back attendance, but weve had an amazing turnout. Ive seen lots of really creative costumes so far. Chamber of Commerce Director Dennille Decker announced the results of the Fall Around Downtown competition, where downtown businesses competed to have the most festive storefronts for the fall holiday season. The Spa on Marion and Feagle and Feagle Attorneys took second and third place, respectively, with Chasteens Downtown taking the first place spot for the second year in a row. The three finalists then judged Trunk or Treats costume contest. Josiah Wheeler, 5, dressed as the Tinman from the Wizard of Oz won the infant to six-year-olds category, and Logan Loyd, 11, won the six to 12-year-old group for her Starbucks vanilla bean cappuccino getup, featuring brush art by Brushworks of Ellisville. The cotton candy frappuccino is my favorite, Lloyd said. As festivities wound down around 8:30 p.m., organizers set up their brand new 12 by 17 foot inflatable moving screen and aired a showing of the timeless Halloween classic, Ghostbusters. All festivities were free of charge to the public due in large part to the events primary sponsor, Potash Corp. White Springs.

In a span of 38 seconds Fort White went from sal-vaging a potential perfect season to suffering its first loss. Suwannee built a 10-point lead with just under six minutes left in the game. Fort White responded with a 72-yard scoring drive, four times converting on third down. Andrew Baker sneaked in from the 1 and Melton Sanders kicked the extra point to get the Indians close at 24-21 with 1:29 left to play. With the onside kick looming, Fort White was helped by a personal foul penalty on the Bulldogs. Jason Brouck booted a bouncer from the Suwannee 45 and Elijah Bryant raced down and recovered the ball for the Indians at the 20-yard line. On the next play Baker lofted a strike to Sanders in the end zone to give Fort White a 27-24 lead with 1:19 remaining in the game. Suwannee only advanced the kickoff to its 26, but on first down freshman quar-terback Steven Anderson found Manny Walker wide open near the Suwannee sideline. Walker shook off a tackle and completed a 74-yard scoring play for the Bulldogs. We played bad, but we had the game won and then they scored, Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson said.

The Tigers were dominant in every sense of the word, limiting the Generals to minus-19 yards of offense. The Generals didnt gener-ate a first down on offense until 1:45 remained in the third quarter after quarter-back Isaiah Dunning scram-bled for 15 yards. A face mask penalty would give Lee its only other move of the chains. Columbia didnt have a problem moving the sticks. The Tigers kicked a 37-yard field goal on their first drive and kept rolling to a 47-0 halftime lead. Brayden Thomas connected on the first drive with 6:40 remain-ing in the first quarter to get the ball rolling. The defense and special teams were stellar all night and Ben Kuykendall recov-ered a fumble in the end zone to put together the first of 16 points from the teams non-offensive units. Kamario Bell gave the Tigers a 17-0 lead with 1:10 remaining in the first quar-ter after a 13-yard score that capped off a 57-yard drive made up of all runs. Nate Taylor was in charge of the next series. Taylor found Bell on a 24-yard screen play and then scored on a bootleg from seven yards to give Columbia a 24-0 lead with 59 seconds remaining in the first quar-ter. The special teams got back into the action on the next possession with Bryan Williams blocking a punt and recovering a fumble in the end zone to give Columbia a 31-0 lead with 9:42 remaining in the sec-ond quarter. We took a look at their alignment on film and theyre only 10 yards back, so that gave us a chance to block it, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said. They had a couple of bad snaps and we were able to do some things on special teams. A bad snap out of the end zone gave the special teams two more points on Columbia one win away from clinching playoffs. CHS continued on 2B

Fort White spent most of the game catching up. The teams exchanged punts on the first two pos-sessions for each. The Indians looked to have the better of the deal with Suwannee pinned back at its 11. Denzel Washington broke loose for a 77-yard run and Anderson punched it in from one yard out on fourth down. Trevor Ross kicked the first of four PATs. After a 41-yard kickoff return by Kellen Snider, Fort White fumbled the ball away at its 42. Anderson threw to Greg Fort for a preview of Suwannee jaw-dropping catches. This one went through the defenders hands and Fort caught it lying on the ground for a 27-yard gain to the Indians 15. Five plays later Anderson scored on a second sneak. Penalties for offsides and an out-of-bounds kick and Sniders 19-yard return set up Fort White at its 40. Tavaris Williams, No. 1 on this night after his No. 2 jersey was torn, set the tone with a 13-yard run on first down. Williams added an 18-yard run and scored from nine yards out on the eighth play of the drive. The score was 14-6 at 7:50 of the second quarter and stayed that way until the half. You have got to give it to them, Indians defensive coordinator Ken Snider said. They came out ready to play and we got behind the eight-ball early. The teams traded interceptions early in the third quarter Brandon Williams for Suwannee and Baker for Fort White. After Bakers 34-yard return, plus a personal foul penalty, the Indians ended up at the Bulldogs 28. Blair Chapman and Baker combined for a first down and Snider scored the touchdown on a three-yard run. He added the two-point conversion and the game was tied 14-all 7:49 into the second half. Both teams punted with Suwannee getting the ball at the Indians 36. The Bulldogs ground out nine running plays before Fort White stopped them at the 5. Ross kicked a 23-yard field goal for a 17-14 Suwannee lead. Fort White went threeand-out and punted to the Suwannee 41. On third-and-17, Anderson connected with Daquez Strickland for 37 yards. Then, on third-and-19, Brandon Williams caught a tipped pass and carried it in for a touch-down and a 24-14 lead. You can call them fluke plays, but they made their own breaks, Snider said. Good teams create their own breaks. You can look at the scoreboard and see it was a tight game. Fort White showed its toughness in the final min-utes, but it turned out to be a tease. We had a chance to go undefeated, but we lost this one, Jackson said. It hurts right now, but all will be forgotten if we come out and take care of business next week. The Indians play Taylor County High this Friday in Perry with the District 2-4A championship on the line.

Columbias offense marched down the field with four first downs and capped off an 11-play, 56-yard drive with Bells second touchdown of the night. This time he scored from five yards away to give Columbia a 40-0 lead with 3:33 remaining in the half. Lequavious Paul recovered a fumble in the end zone with 17 seconds remaining in the half to give the Tigers a 47-0 edge heading into the third quarter. Although the Tigers were dominant, they were also merciful. Columbia called off the dogs in the second half but did score once with a newcomer from the junior varsity that was called up this week after the end of their season. Daylon Sheppard capped off a five-play, 65-yard scor-ing drive in the third quar-ter to give the Tigers the final 54-0 mark. Kuykendall put the exclamation point on the defenses day with an inter-ception late in the fourth quarter. Its good to be back in the win column and get some feel-good around the program, Allen told the team after the game. There were a couple of mistakes, but we got back fresh and got after the ball for four quarters. We have to come back and do the same thing next week, because the only way this team isnt in the playoffs is with a loss. Calling coach RodgersBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Suwannee High needs an IT or PR person or somebody with the proper initials to make some changes. When you call the school switchboard and ask to be connected with head coach Jamie Rodgers, the voice-mail message says you have reached the previous head coach. Coming off a 31-27 victory at Fort White High on Friday, Rodgers has the Bulldogs sitting at 6-1 and one win away from return-ing to the state playoffs for the first time since 2003. That should certainly generate a correct voice-mail, though Rodgers is pleased to share the spot-light. We have a good group of kids, Rodgers said. They play hard to the end. I saw that early in week one. When we were up 24-14, I thought we had the game in hand. A poor spe-cial-teams play amost cost us. I knew they would play all four quarters. Suwannee is 4-1 in District 5-5A and should nail down a playoff sport with a win at Crystal River High this week. The one loss was to North Marion High. There is a lot left to be determined, Rodgers said. There could be a three-way tie and I like our chances in one quarter. Rodgers said it is a little early to take bows, but 6-1 is better than 1-6. The turnaround is a testament to our kids. He said. There is no secret potion. We start in January lifting weights and it goes year-round.

After serving two years with the team as an assistant, Lindsay McCardle will replace Ashley Griseck as the head coach. After playing with the Lady Tigers for four years on the varsity squad, McCardle is fully aware of what to expect out of the program. Shes eager for the opportunity to return. I graduated from Columbia high school in 2008, she said. I played varsity for four years. I didnt play college, but played intramurals in col-lege. I graduated from the University of North Florida with a degree in special education. I now teach at Columbia High School. I was born and raised in Lake City. My husband is Slade McCardle and hes also from Lake City. McCardle hopes that her first two years with the Lady Tigers will help her make the transition to head coach. I coached the past two years with the junior var-sity, McCardle said. We have a very young team this year, but the major-ity of the girls have played travel ball or club soccer in other cities. We have some very talented girls that know soccer and are will-ing to put the hard work in. Im really excited to see them grow into much bet-ter soccer players. Goals are important to McCardle and she made sure that the Lady Tigers were on the same page with expectations. I have very wide expectations for each of them, she said. We sat down and set goals. We want to be district champs. The way to get there is playing as a unit instead of a group of individuals. I guess my philosophy is that we strive to be one, McCardle said. We can rely on one another. We have expectations for team-mates. We want to be able to rely on each other. We expect 110 percent. McCardle also expects a very high-octane set of Lady Tigers this season. We have a very offensive team this year, she said. We have some strong forwards and strong cen-ter mids. In the past, weve always struggled offensive-ly. This year, we have some very strong girls coming into the position. As far as defense, were going to be solid. Im interested to see how we mesh together. McCardle said coaching under Griseck has helped prepare her for this role and she hopes to pass that down to her new assistant coaches. Ive learned a lot about how to communicate, she said. Each girl is different in how you can motivate them. My assistant coach is Tracy Lee. My junior varsity coach is Tami Lapham. Shes coming in and I played with her in high school. Shes really excited. Shes got some fresh and new things for the girls. As far as the Lady Tigers go, McCardle said it will rest on a young trio of play-ers. Returning on varsity is Brittney Lee and shell be our sweeper, she said. She was a very strong and consistent player. Im excited about her and shes grown a lot as far as ball control. She was a freshman last year and her calmness in the game has calmed down. Natalia Pardo up top comes back. Shes been playing club in Gainesville and she just brings a lot of speed and ability to move the ball. We have a freshman Kyrsten Giebeig who has sneaky speed. Shes fresh and very talented. Im excited to have her up top and in the midfield as well. Shes very dedicated. The season kicks off at 6 p.m. on Monday as the Lady Tigers play Fort White High at the CYSA field. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Gillian Norris swings on the practice range while preparing for the state tournament.Norris set to tee off for stateBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia Highs Gillian Norris will have a chance to play for the Class 2A state championship in golf at the Mission Inn Resort and Club in Howey-in-the-Hills on Tuesday and Wednesday. Norris qualified for state by shooting an 80 at the Region 2-2A tournament at Quail Heights County Club on Tuesday. It wasnt an easy road to get to state according to Norris. It took a lot of work and dedication to reach the pinnacle. It was a lot of practice for sure, Norris said. Its pretty exciting, I guess. Norris said that one part of her game stands out and shes confident it will be in the bag when she tees off Tuesday. My driving is the most consistent part of my game, Norris said. My accuracy has got a lot better. Im probably hitting it 220 or 230 yards off the tee. Norris also gave credit to her coach and her practice partner as helping hands on the way to state. I play with my brother every weekend on top of practice, Norris said. Coach (Todd Carter) has helped me keep my head right more than anything. Hes helped me learn to focus. Norris believes playing at home has helped her reach state, but now its up to her to win it. I never expected to be here, Norris said. Having it at Quail was pretty nice. I feel that I can go out and do good. If I play really solid, I can see shooting well on the first day. Her low for the year is 73 and to get there again, she said its going to take a couple of things. I have to keep the right attitude and shoot at the stick, Norris said. My put-ting has given me trouble. I just have to keep the right speed. Norris has a game plan going into the state tour-nament and its two differ-ent approaches for the two days. I want to go in and shoot a solid round, maybe in the 70s, Norris said. The first day, Im going to play pretty fair, but I plan to get a little frisky on the second day. If I have a shot, Im going to shoot at the target and go for it. And Norris doesnt count herself out of winning the whole thing. I feel anyone can win on any given day, Norris said. District bowlingFrom staff reportsColumbia Highs bowling team will defend its District 2 title in the meet at AMX Galaxy West in Ocala on Monday. The Lady Tigers that coach Brian Saunders is taking to the district meet are Breanne Frazier, Diana Phillips, Amanda Schmitt, Ashley Shoup, Elaina Silcox and Lauren Snipes. Columbia tuned up on Wednesday with a match against Fort White High and Suwannee High. Columbia scored 703762 to 526-464 for Fort White and 525-592 for Suwannee. In the Baker scoring, the Lady Tigers bowled 140 to 120 for Suwannee and 106 for Fort White. In the season-long competition between the three schools, Columbia scored nine points to five for Fort White and four for Suwannee. Seminoles roll NC State, 49-17By KAREEM COPELANDAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Famous Jameis did it again, putting on a show reminis-cent of some of the Florida State greats who were on hand Saturday to honor Bobby Bowden. Jameis Winston threw three touchdown passes and the third-ranked Seminoles scored 35 points in the first quarter on the way to a 49-17 victory against North Carolina State in Bowdens return to Doak Campbell Stadium. Bowden planted the spear at midfield before the game a job usually done by Florida States Seminole mascot. The school hon-ored the 83-year-old Hall of Fame coach who won two national titles and retired after the 2009 season with a pregame ceremony that included nearly 400 former players. Then the current Seminoles went out and put on display that Bowdens best teams would have been proud of, setting up a huge game with unbeaten Miami next week in Tallahassee. Winston completed 16-of26 passes for 292 yards with one interception and left the game after the opening series of the second half. The effort was the latest dazzling performance put on by the Heisman Trophy candidate. Rashad Greene topped 100 yards receiving for the third consecutive game with eight recep-tions for 137 yards and a touchdown for the Seminoles (7-0, 5-0).Safe at home! Cards win Game 3By RONALD BLUMAssociated PressST. LOUIS Third baseman Will Middlebrooks tripped Allen Craig for a game-ending obstruction call on Jon Jays ninth-inning grounder, giving the St. Louis Cardinals a bizarre 5-4 win over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night and a 2-1 World Series lead. Boston had tied the score with two runs in the eighth, and Yadier Molina singled with one out in the ninth off loser Brandon Workman. Allen Craig pinch hit and lined Koji Ueharas first pitch down the left-field line for a double that put runners on second and third. With the infield in, Jon Jay hit a grounder to diving second base-man Dustin Pedroia. He threw home to catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who tagged out the sliding Molina. Saltamacchia threw offline past third, and Middlebrooks, with his stomach on the field, raised both legs and tripped Craig.

During last years event organizers only held the Ambassador Program Level 1. This is an excellent opportunity for anybody who is in customer service in any type of field. It doesnt have to be the hospitality industry, Lord said, not-ing the workshop is for any business that has employees who deal with the public. Of course we want all our hotel owners and restaurateurs to send their people. The workshop is designed to show employ-ees the skills needed for not only good customer relationships, but repeat customers that spread the word about the company, its products and its people. The Customer Service Workshop will take place in two sessions. The first session, the Ambassador Program Level 1, will take place from 8 a.m. until noon. The second session, the Ambassador Program Level 2, will take place from 1 5 p.m. Lunch will be provided for those registering and attending both sessions. Lori Pennington-Gray, a University of Florida asso-ciate professor, will be the events keynote speaker. Gray facilitated both sessions last year when about 30 people attended the event. This year we decided to do the first session in the morning and take it up a notch and do a sec-ond level session in the afternoon, Lord said. If people havent been to the first session they need to go. The Ambassador Program Level 1 will emphasize what it means to be an area ambassa-dor for the community. The training will include breakout sessions where attendees get into groups and interact with other business representatives. The Ambassador Program Level 2 will show attendees not only how they can be an area ambas-sador, but teach them how they can help other resi-dents be an ambassador for the area. The session will also offer tips on how to start internal programs in each local business to promote the company and the area. No matter who thinks they know everything about being good at cus-tomer service, there is never not something that you could learn about it, Lord said. This is just a new approach to an old subject. We found there are these great people that have great personalities that are out there in our community and they could take customer service to something brand new. Seminar organizers believe ambassadors could help the entire community by getting people to stay longer in area hotels, visit more often or relocate and move to the area. Everybody wants to live in a community that has nice people, Lord said. Weve got the best of both worlds and we just want to capitalize on that. Lord said some sort of customer service work-shops needs to be sched-uled each year because people need to be refreshed and reminded of the things in their community. Its more than customer service its about being an ambassador for the com-munity, Lord said. When attendees walk-away they are going to have a note-book with a lot of vital information that they can use throughout the year.

Health care site needs dozens of fixesBy RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVARAssociated PressWASHINGTON Nearly a month into a dysfunctional health care rollout, Obama administration officials said Friday they have identified dozens of website prob-lems that need fixing and tapped a private company to take the lead. Jeffrey Zients, a management consultant brought in by the White House to assess the extent of problems with the HealthCare.gov site, told reporters his review found issues across the entire sys-tem, which is made up of layers of compo-nents interacting in real time with consum-ers, government agencies and insurance company computers. It will take a lot of work, but HealthCare. gov is fixable, said Zients. The vast major-ity of the issues will be resolved by the end of November, he asserted, and there will be many fewer errors. He stopped short of saying the problems will go away completely. The administration also said it is promoting one of the website contractors, Quality Software Systems, Inc., to take on the role of general contractor shepherding the fixes. QSSI was responsible for two com-ponents of the website, a major linchpin that works relatively well, and an accounts registration feature that froze and caused many of the initial problems. HealthCare.gov was supposed to be the online portal for uninsured Americans to get coverage under President Barack Obamas health care law. Touted as the equivalent of Amazon.com for health insur-ance, it became a huge bottleneck immedi-ately upon launch Oct. 1. The flop turned into an embarrassment for Obama and will likely end up as a case study of how govern-ment technol-ogy programs can go awry. The briefing from Zients came a day after execu-tives of QSSI and the other major con-tractor, CGI Federal, told Congress that the government didnt fully test the sys-tem and ordered up last-minute changes that contributed to clogging the system. Next week, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is scheduled to testify. Zients gave some new details about the extent of the problems, but administra-tion officials are still refusing to release any numbers on how many people have successfully enrolled. Although 700,000 have applied for coverage through the new online markets, its believed only a frac-tion of that number actually managed to sign up. Prior to the website going live, an administration estimate projected nearly 500,000 people would sign up in October alone. The marketplaces are the gateway to obtaining health insurance under the new health care law, which requires most Americans to have cover-age by Jan. 1. Middle-class people who dont have insurance on the job can purchase a pri-vate plan with new tax credits to make the premiums more affordable. Low-income people will be steered to an expanded version of Medicaid in states that agree to extend the safety net pro-gram. The federal government is running the insurance markets or taking the lead in 36 states. The rest were set up by states themselves. Zeints said almost daily fixes are already having an impact. For example, over 90 percent of users can now complete one of the first steps, creating an account. But the application process, which involves submitting and verifying personal information and income details, remains volatile, he said. At one point, as few as one-third of users were getting through that part. Zients said there are two big categories of problems. Performance issues involve the speed and reliability of the website. Functional issues are bugs that keep the software from working as intended. He said the government has a punch list of needed fixes that add up to dozens in each broad category. Near the top of the list: insurers are getting enrollments with incomplete, incor-rect or duplicative information. Until now, officials at the federal governments Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have taken the lead operational role on HealthCare.gov. The feds operate a successful e-commerce site for Medicare coverage, but they appear to have to have gotten in over their heads when it comes to Obamas law. QSSI will now be responsible for the execution. The company is a subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group, the nations largest health insurer. It built a component of the website thats called the federal data hub and appears to be working relatively well. The hub is a conduit for verifying consum-ers personal information.Touted as the equivalent of Amazon.com for health insurance, it became a huge bottleneck immediately upon launch Oct. 1.

Send it to us with Foolish Trivia on the top and youll be entered into a drawing for a nifty prize! (One gauge is to compare a firms debt level with its competitors.) Regardless of industry, compare a companys debt load to its cash what it currently has on its balance sheet, and what it can generate. Ideally, it will be able to pay any debt due in the next year with cash on hand and make its interest payments many times over with its free cash flow. (Thats cash flow from operations, minus capital expenditures.) Cash and debt aside, look for other red flags. Is its pension plan underfunded? Is it invested in risky derivatives? Is its industry vulnerable to rapid obsolescence? Then theres plain old corporate stupidity: Is the company buying back shares with money it should be using in better ways? Is it paying dividends, when its clear that it needs that cash to fight for its life? Missteps like these can push an otherwise solvent company right into bankruptcy court. Its smart to stay away from companies with a good chance of ending up filing for bankruptcy. They arent likely to be stocks you can hold for the long term, and their underlying businesses have clearly experienced some missteps. Energize Your Portfolio Some stocks that rewarded your grandparents can reward you, too. Consider General Electric (NYSE: GE), founded in 1892 and now valued near $250 billion. GE has adapted to a changing world over time. Once known mostly for light bulbs and appliances, its operations now include oil and gas businesses; jet, locomotive and diesel engines; health care equipment; and financial services among other things. Its even involved in wind power and solar energy. The company is slimming down its bloated financial business and returning to its roots as an energy infrastructure leader, with its aviation and oil and gas divisions being among its fastest growing. GE is poised to benefit from a recovering world economy. In its last quarter, it noted that orders were up 20 percent in the U.S., and that the companys overall order backlog hit a record level of $223 billion. That represents several years worth of work and future earnings already booked. The company is not immune to trouble. GEs dividend was slashed by two-thirds in 2009 during the credit crisis, but it has nearly doubled since then, and recently yielded 3 percent. Between dividends and stock buybacks, GE is on track to return $18 billion to shareholders this year. And its sitting on more than $132 billion in cash. Does it merit a spot in your portfolio? The M ot l ey Foo l To Educate, Amuse & Enrich Didnt Take My Profits Another reader has lamented that he sold his Apple shares too soon. Well, my biggest investing mistake has been not selling, and letting my money ride on various stocks, including Apple. I watched Apple shares rise to $700 and was delighted. Did I take out at least my original investment? No. As it later fell, dipping below $400, I trusted it would go up again, as Im a long-term investor. Ive held Apple for more than 15 years. I did finally sell 12 shares. It was an exercise in picking fruit at harvest time rather than letting it rot or having someone else pick the fruit. A.B., online The Fool Responds: Patience serves long-term investors well. Apple stock is indeed down over the past year and has gone through some long rough patches, but it has averaged more than 17 percent growth annually over the past 25 years. As long as youre confident in a companys long-term prospects, hanging on through downturns can be smart. Stocks dont move in a straight line. If you bought Apple 15 years ago, youve done quite well!

A The terms growth and value are often broadly applied, and can sometimes even describe the same investment. After all, an ideal stock would probably be tied to a company increasing sales and earnings briskly (thats growth), and also be priced significantly below whats its really worth (thats value). You can do well by seeking both value and growth when investing. *** Q How should I set up and use a stock watch list? P.R., Bristol, Ind. A As you read or hear about companies, take note of the ones you think you might like to invest in. You can maintain a watch list on paper, but its much easier to do so online. Sites such as Yahoo! Finance and AOL let you set up online portfolios, where you can easily track your holdings from week to week or month to month. Perhaps you could pretend that you bought one share of each stock at the price at which you first noticed the company. (That way youll be able to see quickly how much its risen or fallen since then.) Meanwhile, research the companies on your list and get to know them well. When youre ready to buy, youll be familiar with a bunch of firms and will be able to compare them to see which ones are the most promising. Youll also be more likely to to notice when companies you like encounter temporary problems and fall significantly in price. In such cases, do some digging, and as long as the problems seem temporary and not fatal, these can be attractive buying opportunities. Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us Assessing Bankruptcy Risk The last thing investors want is for one of their stock holdings to file for bankruptcy. A company goes bankrupt when it runs out of cash to meet its obligations (such as payments for rent, staff, suppliers and debt). To assess bankruptcy risk, start with the companys debt position. Debt can be helpful, boosting returns in good times. But it can also amplify risk in bad times. A debt-laden company suddenly facing declining sales can cut its dividend but it still has to make its interest payments, and eventually its principal repayment. Worse still, when the economy goes south, access to additional financing can be expensive or simply unavailable. So how much debt is too much? It varies by industry. High debt can be manageable for a utility with predictable cash flows, but its worrisome in tech firms, retailers or restaurant chains all of whose cash flows can fluctuate widely. 2013 T HE M OTLEY F OOL /D IST BY U NIVERSAL U CLICK 10/24 Barneys pledges policy full review after race claims By DEEPTI HAJELA and JAKE PEARSON Associated Press NEW YORK Barneys New York department store, accused of racial ly profiling shoppers, said Thursday it has retained a civil rights expert to lead a review of its policies and pro cedures and has reached out to com munity leaders to start a dialogue. Two black shoppers said they were questioned by police after they made expensive purchases at the Manhattan store. One has filed a dis crimination lawsuit against Barneys, the city and its police department; the other has filed a complaint with the citys police watchdog agency. The president of the Brooklyn chapter of the Rev. Al Sharptons National Action Network, Kirsten John Foy, and the CEO of Barneys, Mark Lee, spoke Thursday and planned to meet next week, Sharptons spokeswoman Rachel Nordlinger said. The civil rights group said earlier it would picket the store if the pattern of racial profiling alleged by the shoppers doesnt stop. Lee offered his sincere regret and deepest apologies. We are conducting a thorough review of our practices and proce dures as they relate to these matters to ensure that they reflect our con tinued commitment to fairness and equality, he said in a statement. The store has retained San Francisco attorney Michael Yaki, who serves on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, to lead the review. The profiling claims also incited criticism on Twitter and an online petition asking rapper Jay-Z, whos collaborating with the luxury retail er for a holiday collection, to disas sociate from it. An email to his rep resentative seeking comment was unanswered. Barneys shopper Trayon Christian, 19, on Monday filed a law suit saying he was detained solely because hes a young black man. According to the lawsuit, Christian, of Queens, went to Barneys on April 29 and bought a $350 Ferragamo belt. After leaving, he said, he was accosted by undercover New York Police Department officers, who said someone at the store had raised concerns over the sale. The lawsuit said he showed the officers the receipt, the debit card he used and identification but was told the identi fication was false and he could not afford to make such an expensive purchase. The lawsuit said he was held in a cell for more than two hours before being released with no charges filed. It said the incident was due to dis crimination based on plaintiffs race and age. The NYPD said it has gotten 57 grand larceny complaints this year from Barneys for credit card-relat ed fraud. Police said theyve made 11 credit card-related arrests and more than 50 larceny arrests at the Madison Avenue store. Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said its standard practice for Barneys and other stores to call police after crimes are committed in them. He wouldnt comment spe cifically about the two cases under investigation but said no detectives were stationed in or near Barneys. The second shopper, who heard about the lawsuit, came forward Wednesday to say she had a similar experience after buying a $2,500 Celine handbag in February. Kayla Phillips, 21, told the Daily News and the New York Post she was surrounded by police officers after leaving the store. She said they demanded to know why she used a debit card without a name on it. Phillips, of Brooklyn, explained it was a temporary card, and after showing police identification and a new debit card that had arrived in the mail that morning they let her go. The citys Law Department said it was waiting for a copy of Christians lawsuit and would review it. Associated Press writer Colleen Long contributed to this report. Gold star nutrition ratings appear to work, study says By DAVID SHARP, Associated Press PORTLAND, Maine A nutritional rating system using gold stars affixed to price labels on grocery store shelves appears to have shifted buying habits, potentially providing another tool to educate consumers on how to eat healthier, according to a new study. The independent study examining a propri etary gold star system used in Maine-based Hannaford Supermarkets suggested it steered shoppers away from items with no stars toward healthier foods that merited gold stars. Our results suggest that point-of-sale nutri tion information programs may be effective in providing easy-to-find nutrition informa tion that is otherwise nonexistent, difficult to obtain or difficult to understand, the research ers wrote in the study, published last week in the journal Food Policy. Its the most rigorous scientific study focus ing on Guiding Stars, which was instituted in 2006 in Hannaford stores and is now licensed for use in more than 1,800 stores in the U.S. and Canada. Researchers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Food and Drug Administration and the University of Florida focused on the cereal aisle, where it can be challenging to make healthy choices amid conflicting health claims and a multitude of sugary offerings targeting children. They compared data from 134 Hannaford grocery stores in the Northeast against an equal number of similar stores across the country. During the first 20 months of the program, sales of no-star cereals fell in both groups: 13 percent at Hannaford stores and 10 percent at the other stores. Likewise, the shift to healthier cereals was slightly greater at Hannaford stores, compared with the others. The studys authors said they believe the addi tional shift in sales was due to the influence of Guiding Stars. Although the percentages are small, if you think in terms of the actual quantities or boxes of cereal sold in the national market, this could have some important implications on the nations health, said Jordan Lin, an author of the study and scientist at the FDA. Hannaford, consumers and others have touted the rating system as simple and easy to understand. My daughter, Emily, shell count the stars. The more stars, the better the food, Angela Buck said this week while shopping with her 3-year-old daughter in a Hannaford store in Colonie, N.Y. Besides Guiding Stars, the United Kingdom experimented with a traffic light system that uses the colors red, yellow and green to high light calories, fat, saturated fats, sugar and salt on labels; the NuVal system ranks food on a scale of one to 100; and Grocery Manufacturers of America and Food Marketing Institute have created a Facts Up Front system. Unlike nutrition labels on the products themselves, these programs aim to put easierto-understand nutritional information in con sumers faces, on shelves or in aisles. Some nutrition advocates want the fed eral government to step in to avoid confusion caused by competing systems. FDA officials said in 2009 that they were working on federal standards for front-of-package calorie labels, but those labels are still in the works. For the study, researchers zeroed in on Hannaford and Guiding Stars because of the availability of the data. It used data that was provided by Guiding Stars Licensing Co. and from Nielsen ScanTrack to compare the Hannaford and the control group. Julie Greene, healthy living manager at Hannaford, said the Guiding Stars program has been a hit with consumers, helping them navigate confusing claims on packaging that highlight a products nutritional attributes while masking less-healthy ingredients. The cereal aisle, in particular, can be a con fusing place. It can be very overwhelming. Every cereal box is a virtual billboard of health claims, she said. Surprisingly, there was less pushback than anticipated from food manufacturers. Instead of rebelling against Guiding Stars, many manufacturers have been reformulating their products to become healthier because thats what consumers are demanding, she said.

But the dry fall months have arrived, so installing a new drip or micro-irrigation system in your garden would be a great project. The fol lowing information is from solutionsforyourlife.ufl.edu, http://solutionsforyourlife. ufl.edu. Also known as low-vol ume irrigation, micro-irri gation is a watering system that carries water to plants under low pressure. When micro-irrigation is installed and used correctly, water use is reduced because water is delivered directly to the plants roots. Less water evaporates, and disease problems result ing from wet foliage is reduced. Unlike sprinkler irrigation, micro-irrigation can supply water to your plants with 90 percent efficiency. Now that is a Florida-friendly gardening practice. This type of irrigation MICRO continued on 2D Climbing the academic ladder By AMANDA WILLIAMSON firstname.lastname@example.org A lexa Hatcher spent much of her sopho more biology class asking questions, con stantly curious about genetics, cellular respiration and the connection between the Bible and the Big Bang Theory. A lifetime of inquisitiveness paid off early last month when Alexa, 16, was admitted into the National Society of High School Scholars, a society that recog nizes top scolars who have dem onstrated leadership, scholarship and community commitment. This is probably going to sound extremely nerdy, Alexa said with a laugh, but in all the history classes Ive taken, what makes countries and societies successful is a sense of national ism. Similar to that, I feel like in a way about Fort White High School. I have a sense of school spirit, and I want my school to be successful. As a member of the varisity softball team, the bowling team and student body vice president, Alexa helps improve her school in areas outside of academics. But it was her teachers and guid ance counselor who saw that she had tremendous potential, so they recommended her for the national scholarship society. The National Society of High School Scholars require each member to be nominated by a teacher before the organization sends a letter to the student. Our vision is to build a dynam ic international organization that connects members with meaning ful content, resources and oppor tunities, NSHSS President James W. Lewis said in a press release for the family. We aim to help students like Alexa build on their academic successes and enhance the skills and desires to have a positive impact on the global community. Membership into the organiza tion provides qualified students a variety of benefits, including scholarship opportunities, aca demic competitions, free events, publications and publicity honors. Im definitely excited now that Im in the Society, Alexa said, adding that she was excited for the scholarships the society would help her obtain. It looks nice on college applications. Eventually, she wants to attend the University of Florida or Valdosta State University to become a certified registered nurse anesthetist. I knew I wanted to go into the medical field since I was a little girl, she said. Last year, in my biology class, it was like a con firmation from God that the field was what I wanted to pursue. Ive always liked science. According to Alexa, every les son taught by her biology teacher Jackie Clarke just clicked. She loved learning about DNA, enzymes and more. Alexa scored the highest grade for her school on the biology end-of-course exam. Clarke encouraged learn ing outside of the classroom by providing material that she could look into regarding her ques tions on evolution, the Big Bang Theory and the Bible. I think she probably got aggravated with me, Alexa said. I would ask so many questions, she would eventually say: Alexa, its time to move on now. This is your last question. Who does she attribute her straight-A education career to? God and her parents. Nearly every Sunday finds Alexa in the pews of First Baptist Church in High Springs. She said God pro vided her with the ability to learn, a supportive family and values to work hard at the gifts Hes pro vided her. I feel like my parents defi nitely do press me to make good grades, she said. Not like You Fort White High junior admitted to top honor society. CLIMBING continued on 2D
Associated Press VICKSBURG, Miss.A prosecutors office has developed a book for children that uses simple language to describe the court process and all the key players a child might see inside the court room. Court For Kids was put together by victim assistance coordina tor Susie Calbert, who worked as a court-appoint ed childrens advocate before joining the district attorneys office. The district attorneys office, which handles cases in Warren, Sharkey and Issaquena counties, ordered 250 of the books, which were paid for by a grant provided though the Victims of Crime Act. You want to provide an environment thats nur turing and friendly and safe so they can trust you, Calbert told the Vicksburg Post. When they come here and see the people they have iden tified in the book they are more open. Every week, the district attorneys office sees two to three cases when chil dren are victims or witness es, said District Attorney Ricky Smith. Its an idea that we had thought about doing several years ago but just didnt have the manpower to do it, Smith said. We have always thought that we have needed something to help the kids. Calbert said the book is targeted at children younger than 12. She said the information might help any family member who is unfamiliar with the judicial process. Its an easy read and parents can read it and it will help them understand as well, Calbert said. Each page also contains illustrations and there is space for children to write about their feelings about being in court or write a short letter to someone they feel has helped them through the process. The back of the book has an activity section with color ing pages and space for drawing. Having them draw is therapeutic, Calbert said. system can be installed above, on, or below the surface of the soil. Use it for various plantings including vegetables, trees, shrubs, contain ers, and flower beds. Micro-irrigation is eas ily installed, and kits and components are readily available at most garden centers and home improvement stores. Originally designed for commercial vegetable growers, micro-irrigation has become very popular in home gardens. This system does require some maintenance, but it is easy to manage. There are three main types of micro-irrigations: In-line drip tubing: Placed on or below the soil surface or mulch, drip tub ing is ideal for vegetable gardens where plants are in rows. The flexible tubing can also be easily wound through a plant bed. Drip emitters: Used where plants are spaced farther apart or used for potted plants and hang ing baskets. The emitters can be punched directly into the main tubing or attached to spaghetti tubes that lead to plants. Micro-sprayers: Used just above the surface, micro-sprayers wet a larg er portion of the ground and emit more water than other types of micro-irriga tion systems. Micro-irrigation sys tems can be attached to a hose or outdoor faucet and controlled manually or with a battery-oper ated timer. They can also be hard-piped into an existing in ground system and automatic irrigation controller. Some drip and spray emitters can even be adjusted to control the amount of water emitted. The most common issues are plugged emitters and tubing punctures. But these problems are easy to detect and repair by monitoring the system regularly. Your plants should also be monitored for signs of too little or too much water and the system should be adjusted accord ingly. Whether you are trying to reduce water use or increase your garden quality, drip irrigation is a beneficial option. 2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2013 Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 2DLIFE Alexis Carswell Brian Hartsfield November 16, 2013 ~ Tara Trespalacios Lee Trawick November 23, 2013 ~ Priscilla McDonald Charlie Bell January 4, 2014 156 N.

Vaticans US donors get access for a $500 pittance By NICOLE WINFIELD Associated Press VATICAN CITY They entered the Sistine Chapel in tuxedoes and gowns, the clacking of high heels on marble competing with the Latin chants of a choir fill ing the frescoed hall. The donors to the Vatican Museums got seri ous VIP treatment during their recent visit to Rome: lectures on museum res toration projects, catered dinners in museum galler ies, a vespers service in the Sistine Chapel celebrated by papal prefect Monsignor Georg Gaenswein and even a one-on-one with Pope Francis himself. Such access comes with a price, but its not as high as you might think. For starters, all it takes is $500 a year to join the Patrons of the Vatican Museums, the fundraising organization that hosted last weeks extravaganza. The events marking the Patrons 30th anniversary did cost significantly more $1,900 a head for the entire five days of Vatican pampering but even that price seems a relative bargain given that a single New York fundraiser, with out pope or music under Michelangelo, might run $1,000 a head or more. Are you kidding? You cant buy your way into this, marveled Ronald Poe as he sipped pink bubbly in the Gallery of Maps after the Sistine Chapel vespers Saturday night. In fact, you can. There are currently about 2,500 patrons and each year the Vatican can count on about $5 million from them averaging $2,000 a head with gifts added to revenue from the annual membership fee, said the Rev. Mark Haydu, the pro gram director and priest of the Legion of Christ, a reli gious order known for its fundraising prowess. Most of the patrons hail from the U.S., where the program began after an exhibit of Vatican treasures caught the attention of some artloving philanthropists. Over the years, their generosity has funded, among other things, the restoration of the Sistine Chapel and three of the four Raphael Rooms in the Apostolic Palace a point raised by Pope Francis when he greeted each of the 350-plus patrons and family members who gath ered on Saturday in the pal ace for a private audience. Over the past three decades, the patrons have made an outstanding con tribution to the restoration of numerous treasures of art preserved in the Vatican collections and to the broad er religious, artistic and cul ture mission of the muse ums, he said. For this I thank you most heartily. Each year the Vatican Museums offers up a wish list of the works that need attention in hopes of find ing a local chapter or indi vidual patron to adopt the project. The 2014 wish book includes cleaning an 18th century silk embroidered Manchurian dress (10,000 euros/$13,800); sponsoring an outside archaeologist to work on a necropolis dig underneath the Vaticans parking lot (40,000 euros) and buying new display cases for the Egyptian Museum (930,000 euros).
Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2013 3D3DLIFEBy LOLITA C. BALDORAssociated PressWASHINGTON Parked around the airstrip at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland are more than a dozen mas-sive C-5A Galaxy transport planes. There is no money to fly them, repair them or put pilots in the cockpits, but Congress rejected the Air Forces bid to retire them. So, in the weeks and months ahead, crews will tow the planes around the Texas tarmac a bit to make sure the tires dont rot, then send them back into exile until they can finally get permission to commit the aging aircraft to the boneyard. Its not an unfamiliar story. Idle aircraft and pricey ship deployments under-score the contradictions and conflicts as Congress orders the Pentagon to slash $487 billion in spend-ing over the next 10 years. Yet, at the same time, law-makers are forcing the services to keep ships, air-craft, military bases, retir-ee benefits and other pro-grams that defense leaders insist they dont want, cant afford or simply wont be able to use. The Associated Press interviewed senior military leaders involved in the ongoing analysis of the budget and its impact on the services and com-piled data on the costs and programs from Defense Department documents. The Pentagon long has battled with Congress over politically sensitive spend-ing cuts. But this year, mili-tary officials say Congress refusal to retire ships and aircraft means the Navy and Air Force are spend-ing roughly $5 billion more than they would if they were allowed to make the cuts. In some cases Congress restored funds to compen-sate for the changes, but the result overall was lost savings. In other cases, frustrated military leaders quietly complained that they were being forced to furlough civilians, ground Air Force training flights and delay or cancel ship deployments to the Middle East and South America, while Congress refuses to accept savings in other places that could ease those pains. Along the eastern seaboard, two Navy cruisers, the USS Anzio in Norfolk, Va., and the USS Vicksburg in Mayport, were sched-uled for retirement this year but both are now sit-ting pierside. Navy lead-ers will soon schedule the ships for significant repairs and begin readying their crews so they can go back into service. Altogether, Congress is requiring the Navy to keep seven cruisers and two amphibious warships in service, eliminating the $4.3 billion the retirements would have saved over the next two years. A lot of it comes down to parochial political inter-ests, said Todd Harrison, senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments. No member of Congress wants to have a base closed in their dis-trict or to have a fighter squadron relocated out of their district. Members of Congress argue that they believe the Pentagon sometimes makes bad decisions and other times may purposely target programs that have broad support. Certainly that has been a pattern, theyve cut Guard and Reserves in areas where its clearly unwise and Congress steps in to put the money in, said Rep. Michael Turner, R-Ohio, chairman of the House Armed Services air and land forces subcom-mittee. While the Navy sought to retire the seven ships, the Air Force wanted to save more than $600 mil-lion by retiring C-130 and C-5A cargo aircraft, three B-1 bombers and 18 high-altitude Global Hawk sur-veillance drones. Congress disagreed, adding various require-ments that the Navy and Air Force maintain the ships and aircraft, and in some cases added money to the budget to cover them. Fifteen of the C-5A Galaxy aircraft are at Lackland, where crews are getting in some flights now preparing for the retirement, while 11 are at Martinsburg, W.Va., and are flown by the Air National Guard there. A senior Air Force official said the service deter-mined that it didnt need all of the aging aircraft. And it pushed to cut the Global Hawks because defense officials determined that the U-2 spy plane, first pro-duced more than 50 years ago, was better suited for the high-altitude surveil-lance job and would cost less money. The official also noted that while lawmakers rejected plans to retire the Galaxy aircraft, con-gressional appropriators did not add back enough money to pay for the fuel or the manpower to fly them. Similarly, the three B-1 bombers will move into backup status and likely will be used infre-quently. The official was not authorized to speak publicly about the budget, so requested anonymity. The decision to block retirement of some C-130s, however, reveals how narrow, yet critical, the political interests can be. Pennsylvania lawmak-ers declared victory last month when they reversed the decision to retire eight C-130s and shut down the 911th Airlift Wing near Pittsburgh. Local officials and business owners argued that the base, which uses space at Pittsburgh International Airport, provides an eco-nomic boost to the entire community. Sens. Pat Toomey, a Republican, and Bob Casey, a Democrat, lob-bied Pentagon leaders and fellow lawmakers to keep the wing. They argued in a letter to then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta that the 911th is a very efficient and cost effective installation and that closing it could be a waste of taxpayer dollars. Pentagon officials have also been thwarted in their broader efforts to shut down costly and underused military facilities around the country. Congress rejected the departments request last year for two more rounds of base clos-ings, as lawmakers objected not only to the prospect of taking jobs and dollars out of a regions economy, but also questioned whether closing the facilities actu-ally achieves the promised savings. Pentagon budget chief Robert Hale acknowledged earlier this month that the department spent $35 bil-lion on the base closure round in 2005, and while it saves $4 billion a year, officials wont break even until 2018. The expense is largely because a number of new facilities were built even as some were merged and closed. Would a (base closings) round be effective in providing rapid savings? Unfortunately, history has emphatically told us, no, Rep. Rob Wittman, R-Va., said during a recent hearing on the Base Realignment and Closures program. I believe that aggressively moving forward with the BRAC round could signifi-cantly harm our military power and their ability to project power. Currently, the department saves about $8 bil-lion a year on the four rounds that were car-ried out before 2005. The Pentagon has proposed another round in 2014 that Hale said would save $1 billion to $2 billion a year. Pentagon leaders insist that the military still has nearly 20 percent too many bases and facilities. There is still excess infrastructure, Assistant Army Secretary Katherine Hammack told the House Armed Services Committee last month. I was just on one (base) that had 800 buildings and we were uti-lizing 300 of them. Perhaps the most significant cost savings histori-cally opposed by Congress are Pentagon efforts to scale back military retire-ment benefits, including proposals to increase pre-miums or co-pays for retir-ees. I think theres a misunderstanding in Congress about what it is that would change, Harrison said. They tend to associate changes in retirement ben-efits with changes to veter-ans benefits. But changes to retiree health care would only affect the approximately 17 percent of the service mem-bers who stay in the mili-tary long enough to qualify for retirement, and those are usually more senior officers who already have a higher income. Veterans benefits more often help those with lower incomes, and they are included in the Veterans Affairs Department budget, not the Pentagons. Turner faulted department leaders for some of the problems with those broader issues. I think on policy shifts you need a more holis-tic approach, and the Pentagon usually doesnt engage Congress in dis-cussions of finding cuts or program changes. They send them up as missiles for Congress to deal with, instead of using a delibera-tive approach. Harrison said the Pentagon needs to do a better job explaining and selling its arguments for such politically unpalatable spending cuts.

DEAR ABBY: I meet my dad for dinner once a week, which we both enjoy and have done for years. Dad stays very healthy and enjoys run-ning and biking, which I completely support and admire him for. The problem is, he has started running to our meals. He sweats a lot when he runs, so he arrives at the restaurant literally dripping. He then grabs a handful of napkins to wipe off, and lifts his shirt to wipe his face and neck with it. Abby, hes so sweaty that he has dripped on the counter when he signed the receipt. I find this unbelievably rude, not just to me but to the restaurant. This wouldnt even be appropri-ate in a fast-food joint -but this ISNT one. Its a nice restaurant where people are trying to enjoy their meal. I feel if he wants to run to our dinners, he should arrange to get there early enough so he can dry off in a bathroom and change his shirt. He insists its no big deal and that sweating is normal. What should I do? This is really getting to me. -DISGUSTED IN SEATTLE DEAR DISGUSTED: While I, too, admire your fathers dedica-tion to physical fitness, I can understand why his behavior would bother you. It is gross. If you havent already expressed to him how inconsiderate this is, please do. Because your father likes to run to the restau-rant, consider stashing a supply of towels and shirts in the trunk of your car for him to change into in the mens room out of view of other patrons. (And dont forget the deodorant.) If he refuses to cooperate, then please -for everyones sake -pick him up and transport him to the restaurant. Just reading your letter is enough to make the fam-ished lose their appetite. ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: I was 33 and newly divorced when I was finally able to expe-rience living by myself. I kind of loved it. My boy-friend, Alex, and I have lived together for almost four years and I almost never get time to be by myself. Alex gets alone time because Ill sometimes have dinner with girl-friends, volunteer, go to the theater, etc. But he almost never leaves. Hes somewhat social, but he always invites people over; he never goes to them. I have told Alex many times that I need him to give me some time alone in the house, but nothing comes of it. -CRAVES ME TIME IN PORTLAND, ORE. DEAR CRAVES ME TIME: TELL Alex you need time alone in the house and that he will need to make other plans for a specific day. If thats hard for him, call some of the friends he has been inviting over -after all this time, you probably know most of them -and ask them to invite him over a couple of times a month. They may be able to help you pry him out of the house. If they are unsuccessful, it looks like Alex will have to visit his relatives on a more regular basis. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Do whatever it takes to make your wishes come true. Get involved with someone you feel can bal-ance you out or help you get ahead. Make a commit-ment. MMMMM TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Keep your emotions in check. Problems will surface if you are demand-ing or stubborn. Getting out with friends or doing something that will help you meet new people is encouraged. MM GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Set your sights on fix-ing whatever isnt working -mentally, physically or financially. Going over how youve done things in the past will help you make better choices now. MMMM CANCER (June 21-July 22): Getting out and taking part in whatever entices you will lead to all sorts of perks and benefits.
