Tournament director Eddie Kurtz formally announced his resignation in an email Monday night. Treasurer Keith Roberts resigned as well the weekend of the 19th, according to Kurtz. Roberts declined comment on the matter. Unfortunately I have decided not to continue my position with CYSA board effective immediate-ly, Kurtz said in his resignation. I asked again last week to see cop-ies of the last six months worth of checks and was informed...I wasnt entitled to ask for that information outside of a board meeting and was only entitled to see a financial statement. He continued to cite questions over a pair lawnmowers report-edly purchased with CYSA funds, one of which was sold to asso-ciation secretary TD Jenkins, as well as other money-handling concerns. My understanding is and I havent seen it, thats why I was asking to see it that there were checks written to cash for supplies, rather than checks being written to specific places. Kurtz said.

According to a news release from the Columbia County Sheriffs Office, LCPD Investigator David Greear tried to lead offi-cer Brandi Jackson to safety during the early-morning blaze in his home Thursday but the two became sepa-rated and Jackson did not escape. Greear, who sought help from a neighbor get-ting back into the struc-ture, now fully engulfed, suffered smoke inhalation and minor burns. He was released from Lake City Medical Center later that morning. The preliminary investigation reveals nothing of a suspicious nature at this time and both occupants were asleep in different areas of the residence at the start of the fire, the release said. Greear was awakened by the 1 a.m. fire and tried but failed to extinguish it, accord-ing to the release. He then went to the rear of the home and woke Jackson. They attempted to exit through heavy smoke but Jackson became disoriented and the two became separated, the release said. Greear escaped while Jackson, unfamiliar with the resi-dence, the release said, did not. County firefighters locat-ed Jacksons body within the residence after extinguishing the blaze. At this time, this appears to be nothing more than a tragic accident, the release continued. Our thoughts and prayers go out to both families during this difficult time of great loss. The fire is under investigation by CCSO, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the state fire marshals office. Greear, one of three LCPD officers wounded in an August 2011 shootout, is staying in a hotel and spending time with visiting family members, an LCPD spokes-man said. Jackson, 24, was sworn in as an officer in August. A 2007 graduate of Fort White High School, she leaves behind two children, ages 4 and 2, as well as parents and siblings. Funeral services are set for Tuesday at Christ Central Ministries. (See obituary, Page 5A.) Veteran tried to lead fellow officer to safety, became separated in heavy smoke. FAIR 6+/' County exposition kicks off in grand fashionBy AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.com urrounded by the bright col-ors and festive music of the Columbia County Fair, six-year-old Kynleigh concentrated on the pool of plastic fish in front of her. Her toy fishing rod bobbed in the water as she maneuvered her way around the kiddy pool. I done it, she said, proudly holding up a hooked miniature shark. Good job, said the fair employee. Do you want to throw it back or do you want me to? Taking her catch, Kynleigh tossed the plastic creature back into the water before accepting her prize: an oversized, blow-up pink hammer. It was her first game at the fair on Saturday evening with her father Matt Christie, and already she was walking away with toys. Ive been to the fair a bunch of times, she said. I want to ride the bumper cars. Its fun to bump into people. According to fair director Steve Briscoe of 1st Street Music, the fair experienced an excellent opening on Friday night despite the rain. Compliments have poured in about this years entertainment, especial-ly the new acts, the Sweeney Family Band and the Fire and High Dive Show. There were a lot of oohs and aahs when he lit himself on fire and dove into the pool, Briscoe said. In the opening ceremony, I was asked if I could sum up the Columbia County Fair in just a few words. I thought about it and came up with: Tradition and community. More than 60 years ago, the fair started bringing together people from all over the area. Though adults do not really come for the rides or the games, Briscoe said, they SCYSA continued on 7A INSIDEQ Memories from fallen officers family, 3A Brandi Jackson Photos by JASON MATTHEW WALKER and AMANDA WILLIAMSON /Lake City ReporterTOP: Fort White FFA member Colby Laidig kisses her steer, Tigerlily, on the nose during the Columbia County Fair on Saturday.

Jail records show 50year-old Paula Howard was arrested and charged on Thursday with child abuse, contributing to the delin quency of a minor, deriv ing support from proceeds of prostitution, among other charges. Shes being held on $36,000 bond. Jail records dont list an attorney. A sheriffs office state ment released Friday says deputies received infor mation that Howard was soliciting her daughters ages 16, 17, and 18 for prostitution. When undercover deputies were at a bus stop Thursday afternoon in Kissimmee, Howard waved them down and motioned for her daughters to approach the car. Authorities say the girls offered sexual acts in exchange for money before getting into their vehicles. The girls were placed into protective custody. Search continues for mom, kids DELTONA Several agencies have joined the search for the bodies of a missing central Florida woman and her two young children. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports the crew started on Thursday with 66 searchers and by Friday morning grew to 80 searching for 28-year-old Yessenia Suarez and her children ages eight and nine. Authorities say her husband, 31-year-old Luis Toledo, confessed to using his martial arts skills to kill Suarez. He has impli cated someone else in the deaths of the children. Jail records show hes being held without bond on charges of second degree murder and domestic bat tery. He was arrested on Oct. 23. Sheriff Ben Johnson told the News-Journal: I just dont see a happy ending to this thing. Girl grazed by bullet at bus stop PEMBROKE PARK Broward County authori ties say the 17-year-old girl who was grazed by a bullet in the neck while waiting for a school bus has been treated and released from the hospital. A sheriffs office state ment says a group of teens had gathered at the school bus stop in Pembroke Park after 6:30 a.m. Friday when they heard gunfire. Makeda Elliott was grazed by a bullet. She called her father who rushed to the stop and took her to the hospital. The streets near Watkins Elementary were shut down. The school was not yet in session and never put on lockdown. No one else was injured. 2 HS students contract MRSA BROOKSVILLE School officials say two Hernando High School students have contracted the bacterial infection known as MRSA. The Tampa Bay Times reports Hernando County school officials sent home letters in October to notify parents and let them know how to take precau tions. Superintendent Lori Romano says she doesnt have information on the condition of the infected students. MRSA stands for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Health officials say it can be difficult to treat because it is resistant to many kinds of antibiotics. Officials say the infec tion often begins as a pimple or boil and is most commonly spread by hav ing close physical contact with an infected person. NEW YORK E wan McGregor, star of Star Wars and Trainspotting, will make his Broadway debut next year in a revival of Tom Stoppards The Real Thing. Roundabout Theatre Company said Thursday that McGregor will play the unhappily married Henry in the play under the direction of Sam Gold. Previews begin next October at the American Airlines Theatre. McGregor was last seen on the stage in 2008 in London starring as Iago opposite Chiwetel Ejiofors) Othello at the Donmar Warehouse. He also starred alongside Jane Krakowski, Douglas Hodge and Jenna Russell in the original Donmar Warehouse production of Guys and Dolls at the Piccadilly Theatre in London. McGregor will be seen next in John Wells film adaptation of Tracy Letts Pulitzerand Tony-winning play August: Osage County oppo site Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts. No jury verdict yet in Sean Taylor slaying trial MIAMI Jurors deliberating the fate of the man charged in the 2007 slaying of former Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor watched the suspects videotaped confession again and asked a question, but didnt reach a verdict Thursday. The jury told court personnel they wanted to quit by about 4 p.m. because some wanted to take their children trick-or-treating for Halloween, and Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Dennis Murphy sent them home. The panel returned Friday to resume debating the case of Eric Rivera Jr., the 23-year-old Fort Myers man accused of fatally shooting Taylor during an ill-fated burglary attempt at the Pro Bowl safetys Miami-area home. Four other young men were charged, with one plead ing guilty to second-degree murder charges and three awaiting trial later. Rivera gave a detailed confes sion to investigators are few days after Taylor was killed, which the jurors watched again Thursday in the locked courtroom. Prosecutors say the confession was voluntarily given and is solid proof of Riveras guilt, but the defense claims it was coerced by police under intense pressure to make an arrest in the high-profile case. The jurors asked one question Thursday that involved how to define whether Rivera was a main actor in the crime. Former federal prosecutor David S. Weinstein said the question is important because if the jurors decide he was a key play er or principal in the crime, they could convict him of murder even if they cant agree whether he actually pulled the trigger. Jagger says he never hit on Katy Perry at 18 NEW YORK In her teenage dream? Mick Jagger says he never hit on Katy Perry when she was 18. During an interview with an Australian radio show this week, the pop star said she sang backing vocals for Jaggers 2004 song Old Habits Die Hard. Perry said she had dinner with the veteran rocker and that he hit on me when I was 18. In a statement Thursday, a rep resentative for Jagger says he cat egorically denies that he has ever made a pass at Katy Perry. The rep adds: Perhaps she is confusing him with someone else. The 29-year-old singer also said Jagger has been very kind to her.

But for Pearce Powers mom, Allison Powers, the fair was all about the food. The two came to spend the day with Powers father and to allow Pearce the chance to ride all the rides before the fair became too busy. I came to the fair when I was a little kid, she said. Weve been coming here for, maybe, 25 years. Pearce bounced from game to game throwing darts at balloons one sec-ond, then spinning on the tilt-a-whirl and next trying to convince his mom to let him try to win a rabbit. I wanted the rabbit, he said. The games have been my favorite the fishing game and the rab-bit game. You had to throw a ball into one of the cups.According to Powers, Pearce plans to open a res-taurant that sells fair food all year long. He knows how much his mother loves it, she said. For the first time, the fair is holding a food drive. The booth is set up all week long, but on Wednesday the fair is organizing Fill the Ram. The event attempts to raise enough non-perish-able food items to fill the beds of two Dodge Ram trucks. Guests can get into the fair free on Wednesday if they bring in three non-perishable items to add to the cargo. All donations will go to the Florida Gateway Food Bank. Sunday, Nov. 3, is Family Day at the Columbia County Fair. Gates open at 12 p.m., and guests can get into the fairgrounds and ride all the rides for $10.

Brandi Jackson rememberedBy AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comB randi Jackson twisted her younger brother to the ground, anchoring both wrists to his back and pre-paring for handcuffs that would never come. Fourteen years old, Micah jumped to his feet and Jackson steadied her stance to show him another move she learned in the police academy. From the video, Jackson smiled. But behind the phone and the recorded snap-shot of Jacksons life, her father sat silent. Early Thursday morning, Lake City Police Department Officer Jackson, 24, died in a house fire leaving behind two children, three siblings and her loving parents. Brandi was an extremely well-rounded person, said Tara Krieghauser, Jacksons stepmom. She was level-headed and knew that she had to set goals so that she could provide for her two children. ... She and I were really like best friends. Born and raised in Columbia County, Jackson graduated from Fort White High School in 2007. She contemplated joining the armed forces, but decided to start a family instead. Soon, she was blessed with two daughters Avah, 4, and Alivia, 2. As a single mother, Jackson motivated herself to work hard and succeed so that eventually she could get a job with LCPD, Krieghauser said. We all pulled together as a family unit to help her while she was going through school and going through the police acad-emy training she said. Even though Jackson had offers from other depart-ments, Lake City was her home and this was the commu-nity she wanted to help, said her father Mike Krieghauser. Police Chief Argatha Gilmore was Jacksons big-gest inspiration for wanting to join law enforcement, he added. The Lake City Police Department hired Jackson on Monday, Aug. 19, 2013, just a short two months and two weeks ago. Oh my God, she was so thrilled, Tara Krieghauser said. She knew that this was what she wanted to do. Avah and Alivia were so excited for their mother, she added, saying the two told everyone: My mommys a police officer. She helps people. A couple days before Jacksons death, Mike Krieghauser received a text from his daughter as he pulled into the ball parks where he worked early one morn-ing. Youre late, the text read. He glanced around, trying to figure out how she could see him. Jackson was at a near-by field with her training officer, letting the police dogs go for a run. Mike Krieghauser texted back: Theres a county ordi-nance that says no dogs on county parks. Dont make me call the deputy sheriff on you. But in addition to good stories and even better friends, the job opened doors for Jackson. After living with her mother for two years, Jackson bought her own home a two-bedroom brick house off of McFarlane Avenue about a month ago. She had already started decorating it with help from her family. Mike and Tara Krieghauser recently downsized their home and told Jackson she could have their extra home decor. Jackson accepted, and began to add country-chic touches to her new place. She was excited beyond words, Tara Krieghauser said. Brandi was a very fru-gal person. She would decorate something and make it look like a million bucks. It was the time Jackson spent with her family and friends that she cherished the most, Mike Krieghauser said, adding that he frequently saw Jackson at the park with her two daughters. Already Jackson was trying to teach her oldest daughter grown-up responsibilities. Avah learned how to fold her own toddler-sized laun-dry after her mother purchased a small clothes basket. A sports fanatic, Jackson grew up watching professional basketball with her father. If it was on, she wanted to be watching it, Tara Krieghauser said. What was her favorite team? Boston, Mike Krieghauser responded. There were many nights she would call me up just to tell me to watch the game, if I wasnt already watching it. Many of Micahs own baseball games saw Jackson sitting in the stands, supporting her younger brother. Despite her love of sports, Jackson had a girly side. Makeup, nail polish and high heels were staples in Jacksons wardrobe. She loved teaching her 11-year-old sister, Taran, about the latest fashions and hair-styles. According to Tara Krieghauser, Jackson was a wonderful big sister to her younger siblings, always encour-aging them to do their best in school and in life. Every time [Brandi, Avah and Alivia] came over here, it was like family time, Mike Krieghauser said. Jacksons visitation will be held on Monday between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. at Christ Central Ministries. Her funeral service will be Tuesday at 11 a.m., also at Christ Central. The Krieghausers wel-come any friends, family and community members that knew Jackson to attend the service. Friends and family will be received in the church after the funeral on Tuesday. The Lake City Police Department organized a memorial fund with First Federal Bank under Brandi Krieghauser-Jackson. Deposit slips can be picked up at LCPD or at First Federal Bank. Fallen officer recalled by family as loving mother, daughter and sister.

N obody at LCPD felt much like hosting a party Thursday night, just hours after the loss of one of their own. But canceling the National Night Out wasnt an option. There was no way they were going to disappoint all those kids. So they soldiered on, putting on brave smiles and giving thousands of children a night theyd long remember. Just looking at photos from the event, its clear the little ones had no clue anything was wrong. Or that their hosts were heartbroken.Words often fail at a time like this, so all we can say is, good job, Lake City Police Department. Folks in your line of work can be called on to perform heroics at a moments notice and in ways they might never have imagined. Showing all those kids a good time Thursday may not have been typical police heroics, but it sure meant a lot to your community. You did us all proud, officers, and we are grateful.

BY EMAIL: email@example.com Hearts heavy, the party went on as planned T he presidential election of 2016 will be a defining moment for the nation and for the Republican Party. Not so for the Democratic Party. Theres no controversy among Democrats about what America should be and what their party is about: big government, welfare state socialism and secular humanism. The only question about the Democratic presidential ticket is which welfare state socialist, secular humanist the party will nominate. The picture for Republicans is more complex, and this makes Democrats happy. They see Republican Party dissension as divi-sion and weakness, which, in their view, can only help Democrats. Key issues divide Republicans about principles (what is America about?) and political strategy (what are the best tactics for electing candidates and advancing the party agenda?). So let me say what I see as the Republican dream team ticket for 2016: Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson. Yes, I can hear Democrats saying, Oh yes, I hope Star is right. This will guarantee another four years of our big government socialism. These tea party whackos could never win. And I can hear the Republican establishment saying basically the same thing (any chance these folks have more in common with Democrats than they do with real conservatives?). Both parties are being hammered now in the polls, but Republicans more than Democrats. And among Republicans, the tea party is really being hammered. So how can I seriously say that a truly conservative tea party ticket is the answer for the Republican Party and the country? First, looking at polls is the formula for political failure. Apple co-founder and technology entrepreneur Steve Jobs was widely quoted for his disdain for market research. Jobs view was that lead-ers and entrepreneurs dont start by asking people what they want, and then trying to give it to them. Visionaries see what problems need to be solved and deliver solutions that customers never dreamed of. Political leadership is no different than business leadership in this regard. Polls reflect yesterday. Leadership reflects tomorrow. What is the relevant information we should be looking at today? We should be looking at the ongoing dismal performance of the American economy and of the ongo-ing dismal state and breakdown of the American family. The polling data we should look at is the deep dissatisfaction Americans feel about the state of the country, its direction, and the low levels of trust they have in their government and political leaders. Its time for Americans to have a real choice. We know what the Democratic Party is going to put on the table for them. A Cruz-Carson ticket would give Americans a clear, no-nonsense, hon-est alternative: two Americans who are really committed to what America is about and what made it great. That is traditional values, limited government, free markets and a strong national alle-giance and defense. Given the sweeping demographic changes of the country, it cant hurt to hear this from two self-made Americans: one of Spanish-speaking roots (Cruzs father emigrated from Castros Cuba) and one African-American raised in a ghetto in Detroit. Both are living examples that personal success is not about gov-ernment programs but about tak-ing personal responsibility. That freedom is about creating and serv-ing, not about claiming and taking. And neither has interest in political game-playing. Ironically, the tea party was born when the Affordable Care Act, oth-erwise known as Obamacare, came to life. Now, as the Obamacare disaster unfolds, Americans are starting to understand what the tea party saw then. We shouldnt be trying to drag the tea party back into the amor-phous masses. We need the tea party out front to lead. I dont see a more powerful team to do this than Cruz-Carson.Dream team: Cruz/Carson in 16 TODAY IN HISTORY Q Associated Press On this date:In 1900, the first major U.S. automobile show opened at New Yorks Madison Square Garden under the aus-pices of the Automobile Club of America.

A solemn tribute to Officer Jackson T he flags in front of the Lake City Reporter offices were lowered to half staff earlier this weekend and will remain at half staff until sunset Tuesday. We do this because of the death of Lake City Police Officer Brandi Jackson. She will be laid to rest on Tuesday. Our flags fly at half staff out of solemn respect for Officer Jackson and everyone at the Lake City Police Department. Yes, we know Officer Jackson was off duty at the time of her tragic death in a house fire, but is a law enforcement officer ever really off duty? I dont think so. It is my opinion that anyone who currently wears a uniform and a badge and is sworn to protect and serve should be shown a certain level of respect in life and, when the unthinkable happens, in death. Law enforcement, firefighters, correc-tions officers, forestry firefighters and others in similar positions who do thankless jobs day after day most certainly deserve an extra level of respect. Im not called to do their jobs and work in that vocation. Very few of us are. Im certainly glad we have people willing to tack-le these careers. I compare these individuals to active duty military personnel. They took an oath to be ready, to respond to any type of dangerous situation at any time and protect and serve. I think our local officers deserve similar respect. There has been significant buzz around town since Friday about proper flag protocol in this instance. You can research all the details on your own, but to summarize, gov-ernment buildings seem to have the most restriction. American flags are only lowered at government buildings by order of the president or the state governor. Private citi-zens and private businesses are not bound by these same guidelines. Obviously, common sense needs to come into play, whether you fly Old Glory on a small pole at a 45-degree angle off your porch or you have a large-scale flag pole at your home or office.

6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2013 Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428How to spot deadly weather in advanceBy AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.com Sudden storms can be deadly if the right precautions arent taken but the Columbia County Emergency Management Department will be hosting a Skywarn Storm Spotter Class on Tuesday to help prepare local residents for the unexpect-ed. Held at the Combined Communication Center, 263 NW Lake City Ave., the class teaches how to analyze cloud shapes and prepare for bad weather, said Shayne Morgan, the emergency management director. The class lasts from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Its not really about the season, Morgan said. This is something that doesnt just apply to hurricane season, but its something the public can use year-round. The class size is limited to 30 participants, so Morgan asks that anyone interested in participating contact him right away. He can be reached via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 758-1125, ext. 2. Free to the public, the class will be taught by NWS Jacksonville meteorologist Angie Enyedi. It is the first time the class has been offered in several years. We want to encourage everyone to come out and be a part of it, Morgan said. However, Morgan warns that classes may be canceled with short notice if severe weather threatens Columbia County during the planned class time. Class attendees should check the web-site on the day of the class or contact Morgan to insure the class has not been canceled. According to the NWS Jacksonvilles website, the organization strives to protect lives and property. When weather condi-tions hint at severe thunderstorms or tornadoes, a severe thunderstorm or tornado watch is issued. A warning is issued after severe weather had been reported by a Skywarn spotter or indicated by Doppler radar. Skywarn volunteers a network on trained volunteers become the eyes and ears of the NWS, its website reads. The group helps to provide better watch and warning services. Anyone is welcome to participate in the class, which provides a basic overview of how to categorizes approaching weather and steps to take to prepare. As of press time the class still had spots open for the public.6A Surgeon general sounds the alarmBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comState health statistics say that two-thirds of Floridas adults are obese or over-weight, 65 percent of adults in Florida are at an unhealthy weigh and pre-dict that in 17 years, 2030, two-thirds of the states population will be obese. What scares me the most is that six out of 10 babies born today will be obese or overweight before graduat-ing from high school, said Florida Surgeon General John H. Armstrong. That is a striking image of a high school graduation and the challenge with weight for individuals is that individuals live sicker and die younger. During a three-hour visit to Lake City Friday, Armstrong spent more than 30 minutes talking to local public health officials about the obesity crisis in the state and the importance of teaching the states resi-dents to eat healthy. Armstrong has spent the past 17 months visiting 55 Florida counties promoting eating healthy as part of the states Healthy Florida campaign and said being overweight and obese not only threatens the liveli-hoods of families but there are financial costs tied to the weight problem. He said the costs to manage the four main issues associated with obesity diabetes, high blood pres-sure, arthritis, and heart disease will be in the bil-lions of dollars. Those four diseases could cost the state $34 bil-lion dollars over the next 17 years thats a very conservative estimate and Im not talking about any other medical costs related to obesity, Armstrong said. Thats half the state budget and it threatens the fiscal solvency of the state. Armstrong, who once worked as the Shands at the University of Florida trauma medical director, said weight is the number one challenge as a public health threat in Florida. Weight challenge threatens the ability of Floridas kids, adults and families to work, live and play, he said. Now is the time to really address this because time is not our side with delay and thats why weve launched Healthiest Weight Florida Initiative. Armstrong also announced that the state has launched a healthiest weight community champi-ons program where counties and municipalities across the state that meet specific criteria nutrition criteria and activity environments. Applications will be accepted though the start of 2014.

Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2013 7A whether Roberts actually did resign. I found out from [the reporter], Jenkins said. To my knowledge, he hasnt resigned. Hes turned the books over to one of the other board members for them and the CPA to go over. Roberts, who was trea surer for only about six weeks, confirmed his resignation to the Lake City Reporter but again otherwise declined com ment. Members of the Sports Advisory Council are aware of complaints levied against the CYSA over the past sev eral months, including the lingering issue of $52,688.20 in undocumented dis bursements discussed in a county-backed indepen dent financial report of the CYSA covering the period Oct. 1, 2010 to Sept. 30, 2011 by Powell and Jones CPAs. In response, the SAC is working toward draft ing a set of standardized bylaws that will provide minimum reasonable cri teria for all county youth athletic organizations to follow. The initiative is being spearheaded by Parks and Recreation Department Director Mario Coppock and former CYSA member Denise Graham. Once drafted, standard ized procedures would go before the board of coun ty commissioners, where approval seems likely. The future of the youth soccer isnt about the adults. Its about the chil dren, Commissioner Ron Williams said. Anything adults do to give the orga nization a black eye hurts the youth. Its supposed to be an opportunity for the youth to enjoy themselves. My main focus is to pro vide wholesome recreation to the youth of the com munity. Whos on the Board? Jenkins said the CYSA board decides all matters governing the group. However, the makeup of the board, and the duties of individual members, remains unclear. The truth is, when we have our next meeting, well either vote to accept [the resignations] or not, Jenkins said. Nothing is official until the board votes. The CYSA website lists 12 members on its board of directors. On Wednesday, Eddie Kurtzs name was removed from the list. However, Keith Roberts remains listed as the asso ciations treasurer. When I asked to see the [financial statements], they said I wasnt entitled to them because I wasnt an officer, Kurtz said. Where in our bylaws does it say who is and isnt an officer? According to the bylaws listed on CYSAs website, the word officer is only used once in reference to the consequences related to absence from sched uled meetings. It does not specifically indicate which members are officers. However, it does outline the executive committee which will consist of a mini mum of the president, vice president and the secre tary, who meet over mat ters demanding immediate attention when it is imprac tical or impossible to call a meeting. It also indicates that actions decided by the executive committee are temporary until reviewed by the board. Its semantics, Jenkins said. The board, in actual ity, encompasses 19 people, but theres only four people that have the name board member. But that is one of the big misconceptions. Were all the same, we all have the same voting rights. Two Lawnmowers CYSA has had a lot of bad publicity over the lawn mowers that were bought then sold but, as I under stood from the last board meeting, never paid for even by TD, who has had his for some time and the board was told he paid for it? Kurtz said in his res ignation. Again I strongly urge the remaining mem bers to find out what the real story is on the lawn mowers. Jenkins says he paid for his lawnmower in full. Questions surrounding the lawnmowers date back to the 2012 independent financial report filed by CPAs Powell & Jones. The organization has a Yard Card Plus credit account which was appar ently used to purchase mowing equipment, the report said. During the fiscal year, the organiza tion paid approximately $5,050.00 on this account. At October 10, 2011, the balance due on this account was $10,388.52. According to recollec tions from both Jenkins and Kurtz, that balance is in ref erence to the purchase of two Ferris zero turn riding lawnmowers. Kurtz esti mated the mowers to be around $5,000 each. The active lease agree ment the CYSA holds with Columbia County stipulates that the county shall, at its expense, main tain the general area of the soccer fields and facili ties by cutting and mowing the grass. Landscaping and Parks Department director Clint Pittman con firmed that his staff mow the fields at least once a week. However, Jenkins said this wasnt always the case. If you go back to when those mowers were pur chased, Parks and Rec did not maintain the fields, Jenkins said. Before then, we, the CYSA part of the time we had volunteers who mowed. The county set aside money and we paid somebody to mow or we as volunteers would get out and mow, using a trac tor and mower provided by the county. He claimed that he and other board members won dered whether that system was cost efficient. We, as a board, decided it would be in our finan cial interest to purchase mowers better for mow ing the soccer fields than what we were being pro vided, Jenkins said. Lo and behold, when we got ready to mow, we were told we couldnt use them. ... The county reportedly told CYSA it would handle field maintenance from that point on and that the orga nization could not house the mowers in county facili ties. So that was brought up at a board meeting to get rid of them, Jenkins said. We authorized [former president Scott Everett] and everyone else to find someone who wants to buy them. There were no tak ers. I said I would take one of them. I paid for it. When asked about the details of his purchase, Jenkins said he did not have a copy of a receipt but paid for the mower by check. I dont recall how much I paid for it. Two, three, four thousand... when you get up in age like me, its hard to remember these things, Jenkins, 66, said. The other lawnmower was bought by an indi vidual whose identity the Lake City Reporter could not confirm. Did I really need the lawnmower? No, Jenkins said. Did they need to unload it? Yes. Yes, I use it today. But I paid for it in full. Jenkins said he finished paying for his mower with a $2,000 check on Dec. 18, 2012, and made an addi tional contribution of $400 to help out the CYSA on April 4, 2013. It is not clear how much Jenkins says he paid in total for the mower, and the Reporter could not verify any of his claims concern ing the purchase by press time. Public records I dont know what the secrecy is about the check book and why they dont want to let me see it, Kurtz said. I dont want to be associated with something I cant even see to defend. I dont know if its right or its wrong because I cant get access to the records. The Columbia Youth Soccer Association is a private non-profit corpora tion that organizes youth soccer activities at the county-owned Southside Recreational Complex. The CYSA receives $10,000 a year in funding from Columbia County. According to the Florida Supreme Court, when a public agency delegates the performance of its public purpose to a pri vate entity, public access follows. Jenkins said the CYSA board of directors would be willing to provide that infor mation, but it would have to be placed as a motion and voted on during one of their monthly board meet ings. Were just like any other corporation. If someone wants to see the books, theres a procedure in place. I can tell you they wouldnt be denied, Jenkins said. But we cant just let them see it today. There has to be a proce dure, we had that proce dure in place. You request before the board and they act on it. Would we turn it down? No. Because we dont have anything to hide. We just want every one to follow the proce dures. Kurtz, however, was not satisfied by his explana tion. My only response is if [the lawnmower is] paid for and theres nothing to hide, why try to make me jump through hoops, Kurtz said. Theres no rule in our bylaws that says any thing about that. What he told me was that I wasnt entitled to see it. Jenkins said the CYSA uses checks payable to cash under two circumstances: For purchasing concession stand materials and paying referees. He said its easier to pay referees this way because many of them are minors and havent set up bank accounts yet. County Manager Dale Williams acknowledged that there may be legitimate reasons for writing checks payable to cash, such as for paying referees. However, he said, access to CYSA records could not be denied. Even though public funding is not the largest part of their budget, they have to have transparency, he said. Documents denied Nonetheless, even some basic documents do not appear to be readily avail able for public viewing as per terms of Florida public records law. A reporter made multiple telephone calls and email inquiries to both Jenkins and CYSA president Joy Skinner requesting copies of meeting minutes from Jan. 1, 2010, to Oct. 31, 2013. We cant give you those, Jenkins said. We now have a request and we will take up your request at the next board meeting. When asked if he had the minutes on hand, he replied, Theres no pur pose in me saving them. Its the presidents respon sibility to file them. All CYSA meetings are open to the public. However, their website, cysa.com, only provides minutes for the month of August 2013. Skinner did not respond to repeated calls and email requests seeking com ment. 7A charity A morning of special savings to benet local charities and schools Were grateful for the support our communities give us.

Joshua Allen Emming, of 150 SE Rose Cove Glen, was arrest ed on a warrant Thursday after law enforce ment found reason to believe he engaged in sexual conduct with a 13year-old girl at least twice, according to the arrest report. The girls legal guardian informed authorities that Emming had sex with the girl during a mid-July visit to Ichetucknee Springs with the victims sister and sisters boyfriend, who was a friend of Emming, the report said. According to the report, one thing led to another, and after they had sex the first time, they started talk ing and had sex for a sec ond time. Witness and victim tes timony seemed to indicate Emming was aware of the victims age, according to the report. When investigators inter viewed Emming on Aug. 2, he initially feigned igno rance of the matter before he admitted to having sex with the girl, the report said. He also admitted to using a condom, the report said. Emming was arrested on a warrant and booked into Columbia County Detention Facility Thursday without bond. He faces a charge of sex ual battery for engaging in sexual activity with an indi vidual between the ages of 12 and 16.

Tavaris Williams scored both touchdowns on runs of five and 32 yards. Williams carried the ball 37 times for 277 yards, the fifth time this season he has rushed for more than 200 yards in a game. For the season Williams has rushed for 1,633 yards, averaging 233 per game. He added touchdown runs of 50 and 12 yards in the third quarter for a total of 20 on the year. After Taylor County closed within a touchdown at 9:42 of the second quar-ter, Fort White answered with an 11-play, 63-yard scoring drive. Andrew Baker threw 10 yards to Melton Sanders for the touchdown. Sanders kicked one of his four PATs for a 21-7 lead with 5:47 left before halftime. An onside kick set up the Bulldogs in Fort White territory and Chance Rodgers scored from 15 yards out for a 21-13 score at intermission. Fort White had deferred possession after winning the coin toss and received to open the second half. Elijah Bryant returned the kickoff 23 yards to the Indians 46. On third-and-6 from midfield, Williams broke through the line, cut left and continued to the end zone. The Indians led 28-13 at 10:18 of the third quarter. Taylor County moved across midfield, but ended up punting and the kick was downed at the Fort White 7. No matter. The Indians rolled out of danger and marched the 93 yards in 11 plays to put the game out of reach with 3:11 left in the third quarter. Taylor County quarterback Daniel Wentworth threw for 241 yards on 17-of-31 completions. He had touchdown passes to Rodgers for 23 yards and Jermaine Watkins for 10 yards. Fort Whites defense harassed him. Blair Chapman, Cameron White, Tyler Reed and Dre Brown had sacks, costing the Bulldogs a total of 25 yards. Chapman was a threat on offense, too, leading the Indians in receptions with three for 41 yards and rushing five times for 33 yards. It was fitting at the end of the game when Kellen Snider recovered a fumble to end Taylor Countys final drive and Baker took a knee as the clock went :00. Both four-year starters have chased a district championship for a long time.

INDIANS: Will host first playoff game Continued From Page 1B Tigers on the board with a 71-yard fumble return for a touchdown with 1:42 remaining in the first quarter. Roc Battle blocked a punt on Middleburgs next pos-session and Laquavious Paul recovered it in the end zone for the 13-8 edge. After a 33-yard punt return from Roger Cray set the Tigers up at Middleburgs 34-yard line, the offense finally got rolling. Lonnie Underwood rushed for the first of four touchdowns on the night from 19 yards out with 8:26 remaining in the second quarter for a 20-0 lead. The special teams added a second touchdown on a 75-yard punt return from Cray after Middleburg went three-and-out on its next possession. They call them special teams for a reason, Columbia High head coach Brian Allen said. Anytime you can find a way to score on teams, youre usually going to win the game. A lot of high school teams take that for granted. Underwood matched his 19-yard score with another from the same distance on the Tigers next offen-sive possession for a 34-8 lead and quarterback Nate Taylor found Alex Weber from 28-yards away with 13 seconds left in the half to give the Tigers a 40-8 lead at the break. Columbia didnt wait long to get started in the second half. Underwood carried the ball two times and on the second carry rushed 50 yards to tie the schools sin-gle season rushing touch-down record while giving the Tigers a 47-8 lead. He would break it on Columbias next possession. With 2:15 remaining in the third quarter, Underwood scored from four yards away to give Columbia a 54-8 edge and stand alone on the teams single season mark. From there, the Tigers took time to work in the reserves with a playoff spot as the District 3-6A runner-up locked up. Dariaun Dallas gave the Tigers a 61-8 lead with a four-yard score after Zyeric Woods picked off a pass and ran it back 30 yards to the Middleburg four-yard line. Alex Doughty rounded out the night with a 12-yard touchdown run with 7:59 remaining in the fourth quarter for the 68-8 final. Despite the convincing win, Allen feels the Tigers werent on their mark and must be better to win in the playoffs. From here on, the competition is only going to get better, Allen said. Playing like we did tonight, and well lose football games. One mistake is enough to kill us. Thats not good enough to win in round one of the playoffs. Weve got to have our focus on the bus ride over, in the locker room. We have to come out and start fast. We cant play foolish. We have to get these things fixed, because this is when it matters, in November. The Tigers (8-1) will close out the season at rival Suwannee High (7-1) at 7:30 p.m. on Friday. I couldnt think of a better game to get us prepared for the playoffs, Allen said. The atmosphere alone will be good for us as we travel on the road. Both teams come in with only one loss, and I couldnt think of a bet-ter game to get us prepared to go on the road in the playoffs than a rival to end the season.

Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420 LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2013 3B3BSPORTS BRIEFS Soccer season set to kick offBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High is set to kick off its new season next week with head coach Trevor Tyler returning for his ninth year as the head coach. Tyler has 11 years of experience with the Tigers soccer program, but he expects this to be a rebuild-ing year with only three returning starters. We have our keeper Ty Williams coming back, Tyler said. Tristan OSteen is coming back as a junior and Rogelio Sosa is coming back. But the Tigers also have some new guys ready to step into starting roles. Tim Bagley is back along with Brayden Lehman, Tyler said. We have some guys with limited time in Kyle Richardson and Josh Wacha. We have some freshman on varsity that will make some impact in Chase Erickson, Spencer Robinson and Darren Brock. The key to the season is how the young players can mesh with the returning starters according to Tyler. I think we can continually get better, Tyler said. We are very inexpe-rienced. These kids have never played together. Theyve only played middle school so were looking at continually progressing day in and day out. Columbia will play in primarily the same district with Panama Citys Mosley High exiting and Gainesville High coming into play. Theyll be joined by Chiles, Leon and Lincoln high schools out of Tallahassee. Theyre all going to be good,Tyler said. I dont think theres one that stands out. The level of play between the four teams will be high. Tyler said what is important for the Tigers it to come together by the time of the district tournament, where the playoffs are on the line. Thats what our goal is, Tyler said. Its not about tomorrow or today, but every day. We have to work together. This is a team thats being put together from many different play-ers. Their chemistry is not there yet. As we play and get better, well try to contend. The good thing is we only have to win three games when we get there with district seeding. Those are the ones we want, but every day as we go out, we want to win games JEN CHASTEEN /Special to the ReporterColumbia Highs 2013 soccer team poses for a team pictu re prior to the start of the season. Indians soccer district strongerBy TIM KIRBYtkirby@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE If Fort White Highs boys soc-cer district wasnt tough enough, the Florida High School Athletics Association put more on the plate in the recent realignment. The Indians have a new head coach in John Portera to help take on the increased load. Fort White plays in District 5-2A along with returning members Interlachen High, Keystone Heights High, Newberry High, P.K. Yonge School and Santa Fe High. Santa Fe is the defending district champion and Keystone Heights was runner-up. New teams Crescent City High and Eastside High have joined the district. Both were district champi-ons last year Crescent City in 6-2A and Eastside in 5-3A. Crescent City, which has a four-year playoff run and seven trips all-time, beat Keystone Heights in the first round of the playoffs. Eastside has made the state playoffs 19 times including the last five years. The Rams advanced to the third round of the playoffs last year. P.K. Yonge (13), Keystone Heights (11) and Santa Fe (10) have the most playoff appearances of the return-ing district teams. P.K. had a nine-year streak snapped last year. Keystone Heights had a nine-year run from 2003-11. Santa Fe has been in the playoffs the last three years. Newberry has made the state field seven times. Fort White has been to the playoffs five times, in 2002-03 and 2006-08. Fort White beat Interlachen in the first round of the district tour-nament last year and was eliminated by Keystone Heights. The Indians jump right into the lows and highs of district competition on the road next week. Playing doubleheader games with the girls at 5 and 7 p.m., Fort White takes on Interlachen on Monday and Eastside on Tuesday. BRENT KUYKENDALL /Lake City ReporterColumbia High running back Lonnie Underwood shows o ff the single season record-breaking touchdown ball after scoring against Mi ddleburg High on Friday. Underwood rushes into record book with 29th TDBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comScoring a touchdown with a 47-8 lead already usually isnt much to talk about the following day, but when Lonnie Underwood rushed in for a fourth time to extend Columbia Highs lead to 54-8 on Friday, the junior running back rushed into the record book. Underwood sat out the last two contests with a hip flexor, but came back in strong fashion on Friday to become the Tigers single-season touchdown record holder. Columbia head coach Brian Allen acknowledged Underwood in the teams postgame meeting and fans gave him two claps for his accomplishment this season. I think we saw the old Lonnie tonight, Underwood said. Hes back in full gear and I think that we made the smart decision to hold him out for two weeks. If hes not 100 percent, I think its safe to say that hes above 90. Underwood said that it felt good to be back with his teammates after itching to get back on the playing field since suffering the hip flexor against Ed White on Oct. 11. It felt good to be back out there and Ive worked really hard to get back, Underwood said. I missed it and I was really ready to play again. Underwood said that he isnt back to where he was before the injury, but that he continues to get stronger. Im about 80 or 90 percent, Underwood said. Ive almost got it. Its not as bad as it was. I just couldnt run at all, and now Im back to making my cuts and almost running like my old self. As far as holding the record, Underwood was almost speechless about the accomplishment. It feels alright, he said. Its really important. The big thing is just to con-tinue to strive for state like we have for the last three years.

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2013 Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comJACKSONVILLE It was a tale of two halves, but in the end Georgia did just enough in the first half and the games final possession to hang on for a 23-20 win against Florida on Saturday. Early on it was all Georgia bursting out of the gate. The Bulldogs started the first half fast and didnt let their foot off the pedal until the third quarter. Aaron Murray rushed for 17 yards on the games first play and Todd Gurley capped off the first drive with a five-yard touchdown run with 12:49 remaining in the first quarter. Floridas offense looked like it would start in equally impressive fash-ion after Tyler Murphy hit Solomon Patton for 83 yards on the Gators second play. Patton would commit a 15-yard penalty at the end of the drive, however, and Francisco Velez missed a field goal from 40 yards. Georgia didnt take long to answer. Murray hit Gurley on a 73-yard pass on third-and-6 and the Bulldogs had an early 14-0 lead. As Floridas offense continued to sputter, the Bulldogs tacked on three more points with a 50-yard field goal from Marshall Morgan to end the first quarter up 17-0. Morgan would add two more field goals in the second quarter, bookend-ing Floridas only score of the first half to take a 23-3 lead into the half. Morgan connected on a 27-yard field goal and a 32-yard field goal as time expired in the first half, while Velez kicked a 31-yard field goal for the Gators. After another missed field goal from Velez to start the second half, things looked bleak for the Gators, but Murray fumbled and Leon Orr recovered at the Georgia 14-yard line to turn the game around. Florida needed only two plays to rumble into the end zone and Mack Brown made it 23-10 with a five-yard scamper. After Johnny Townsend pinned Georgia at its own three-yard line on a punt, Loucheiz Purifoy sacked Murray for a safety to cut the lead to 23-12. Florida cut the score to within three after Murphy rushed 25 yards for a touchdown to begin the fourth quarter and passed to Clay Burton for the two-point conversion. Still down three, Florida had the ball at the Georgia 41-yard line late in the fourth quarter, but Murphy was sacked by Corey Moore for a 14-yard loss. Florida punted the ball over to the Bulldogs and Georgia took over with 8:29 remaining in the contest. After being held scoreless throughout the entire second half, the Bulldogs did just enough to ice the Gators by converting on four third-down attempts during the drive and killed off the clock and any chances of a Florida comeback. I t was Halloween this week and Florida head coach Will Muschamp continued to live his own personal nightmare after another loss in the Florida-Georgia series. In his seventh time involved as a player or coach in the series, Muschamp experienced a familiar feeling on Saturday as he watched the other team walk away with a victory. Muschamp played for Georgia during the 90s and witnessed the Gators beat the Bulldogs four consecutive times during his playing career. As Florida head coach, he hasnt seen the Gators execute quite as well. One has to wonder after the Gators fell to 4-4 on the season, if hes witnessing the game in person for the final time. Muschamp is 0-3 against the Bulldogs, something that is sure to stick in the craw of not only the coach, but of the legion of Florida faithful that have suffered along with Muschamp during that span. Florida had its chances during Saturdays game, but in the end accountability starts at the top. And one can only wonder if Muschamp is the reason that Florida has lost three straight in the series for the first time since 1987-1989. Theres plenty of things that can be pointed at. Is Floridas inability to find a kicker that can convert from under 40-yards in the eighth game of the season on the head coach? How about a decision to go late in the first half instead of punting, that led to a Georgia field goal, which ended up being the difference in the game? Sure, the players are ultimately the ones playing the game, but Florida is one of the premier jobs in the country and somebody must remain accountable. If that person is Muschamp, the Florida-Georgia game might be too much of a nightmare for the coach to watch in years to come. Sure words like resilience and phrases like we need to get better will be spoken but, in the end, the only thing that matters is accountability for wins and losses.6BSports FROM THE SIDELINE Brandon FinleyPhone: (386) email@example.com Losing streak on both sides Q Brandon Finley covers sports for the Lake City Reporter JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFlorida quarterback Tyler Murphy leaps into the end zon e to score a touchdown against Georgia at EverBank Field in Jacksonville on Saturday.Bulldogs bashGeorgia makes it three straight over Gators JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterFloridas Loucheiz Purifoy sacks Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray in the end zone for a safety.

The center aids caregivers by providing support, counseling and training to cope with the care and responsibilities of a loved one suffering with dementia. The purpose of the center is to stimulate the thinking process of those people with Alzheimers Disease, dementia and other mild cognitive dis-orders, Flegert said. In doing so, we hope to bring forward the memories that they have from the past. They can remember what happened a few minutes ago or yesterday, but long-term memory is what we try to pull forward. In doing so, that brings the participants a lot of joy, happiness and satisfac-tion. Debby Freeman, Columbia County Senior Services executive direc-tor, said it has been a goal to have an adult dementia day care at the facility for more than 15 years.

So far, this makes a great case for the Roth. But remember that if the $5,500 had gone directly into a traditional IRA, you would have reaped about $1,375 in tax savings each year at a 25 percent tax rate (more, with a higher tax rate). If that sum were also invested, the total difference between the Roth and the regular IRA would become slimmer. Still, the Roth is a very compelling proposition for many investors. You may be able to roll over, or convert, your traditional IRA into a Roth by paying taxes on it, counting the entire value of the account as income. You can also roll over a 401(k) account into an IRA when you change jobs. There are more benefits and limitations to consider before you decide whether the Roth is for you.

Q J.M., Bixby, Okla. A A point is 1 percent of a mortgage loan. On a $200,000 loan, one point would be $2,000. There are origination and discount points. Origination points are sometimes charged for originating, or launching, your mortgage. Paying discount points, which lowers your interest rate (and thus your payments), is optional. The idea is that if you cough up a little extra money at the beginning, you can pay less over time. The more points you pay, the lower interest rate you get. Its not always worth it, though. depends on how long you expect to stay in the home. If you pay a few points and then sell your home after two years, youll have enjoyed lower monthly payments due to the lower interest rate, but the savings probably wont have made up for the points you paid.

LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3-9, 2013 3C By RAPHAEL SATTER Associated Press LONDON The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration says it is relaxing restric tions on the use of smartphones and other electronics inside flights by American carri ers. Passengers are still barred from mak ing calls or downloading data off a cellular network, but the OK on using laptops, consoles, e-readers, and other electronics at the beginning and end of each flight will come as a relief to many travelers. Heres a look at what may be in store for air travelers in the rest of the world. Will others follow the FFAs footsteps? That seems likely. Across the Atlantic, Britains Civil Aviation Authority on Friday said it welcomed the FAAs move, noting that electronic devices were a fact of mod ern life and naturally passengers want to use them when they fly. Still, it said that European authorities in Brussels would have the final say over whether to loosen rules across the continent. One academic who has studied the issue said European regulators first followed Americas lead in banning the use of the devices during takeoff and landing and were likely to follow Americas lead again now that the situation had changed. American safety is regarded as a gold standard, said Joseph Lampel, a professor of strategy and innovation at Londons City University and a critic of the current rules. He acknowledged that European regula tors had become increasingly indepen dent of their American counterparts, but said it still seemed likely that they would relax the restrictions, which he said never made any sense. There was no answer at the European Aviation Safety Agency on Friday, a public holiday in some parts of Europe. What happens if not everyone agrees? Conceivably, a passenger traveling from New York to London would be allowed to use a games console on takeoff but would have to turn it off before landing. If that pas senger took the same plane home, he or she would have to turn the console off on take off but be allowed to use it on landing. Its a confusing scenario aviation officials say theyre working to avoid. Thats exact ly the kind of situa tion that (the International Civil Aviation Organization) is trying to mitigate right now, said spokesman Anthony Philbin. Our main concern is that we dont want to see separate regulations set in place in dif ferent places in the world. Philbin said a group of international state and industry representatives is cur rently studying the issue. What do international airlines think? Airlines across the globe said they were still digesting the FAAs turnaround, but a few of them released statements sug gesting they both expected and welcomed similar moves elsewhere. Air New Zealand, the countrys national carrier, said it seemed probable that a similar approach will be adopted in this jurisdiction in time. Qantas, Australias largest airline, said in a statement that it was always interested in regulatory developments that could benefit passen gers and would be looking closely at the FAAs decision. British Airways didnt offer an opinion on the FAA decision, but noted it had recently become the first airline to allow customers to use their cell phones as soon as the plane left the runway. German airline company Lufthansa, which has long championed the use of data services in the cabin, welcomed the FAA decision but said it was concerned that rules might now vary according to the airline or the destination. We hope these standards will be fea tured worldwide, spokesman Michael Lamberty said. In-flight phones: Others likely to follow FFA lead Associated Press NEW YORK The proposed merg er of Office Depot and OfficeMax has received clearance from the Federal Trade Commission, removing a key regulatory hurdle from the process. The office supply companies agreed to a $1.2 billion combination in February. The agency said its 7-month investigation showed that the combination isnt likely to cause competitive harm. The companies said Friday that they expect the transaction to close on Tuesday. Office Depot Inc., based in Boca Raton, Fla., runs more than 1,300 stores world wide. OfficeMax of Inc. of Naperville, Ill., operates more than 900 stores in the U.S. and Mexico. They each anticipate reporting their third-quarter earnings on Monday. Office Depots stock gained 21 cents, or 3.8 percent, to $5.80 in morning trading. Shares of OfficeMax rose 64 cents, or 4.3 percent, to $15.62. Office Depot, OfficeMax get FTC clearance for deal By KEN SWEET AP Markets Writer NEW YORK The stock market started November on a strong note as inves tors reacted to an expan sion in U.S. manufacturing last month. The improvement came during what could have been a difficult month for the U.S. economy, with a partial gov ernment shutdown that last ed 16 days and a narrowly averted default on the U.S. governments debt, which could have rattled financial markets. With what happened in the last two months, its amazing how strong this market has been, said Bob Doll, chief equity strategist at Nuveen Asset Management. The Institute for Supply Management reported that its manufacturing index increased to 56.4, the high est level since April 2011. That was better than the 55.1 figure economists were expecting, accord ing financial data provider FactSet. The Dow Jones indus trial average rose 69.80 points, or 0.5 percent, to 15,615.55. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 5.10 points, or 0.3 percent, to 1,761.64. The Nasdaq com posite rose 2.34 points, or 0.1 percent, to 3,922.04. Energy stocks lagged the market after Chevron reported that its third-quar ter income fell 6 percent, missing analysts estimates, due to weakness in the companys oil refining busi ness. Chevron fell $1.95, or 1.6 percent, to $118.01. The energy sector was also weighed down by a drop in the price of oil. Crude oil fell $1.77, or 1.8 percent, to $94.61 a barrel. The positive start to this months trading comes after a strong October for the stock market. The S&P 500 closed at a record high seven times during the month, most recently on Tuesday. It ended October with a gain of 4.5 percent. However, some investors have expressed skepticism that stocks can keep up this rapid pace pace heading into the last two months of the year. The S&P 500 is up 23 percent so far this year, while the average annual return on the S&P 500 is around 8 percent. Stocks are also starting to look expensive by some mea sures. Investors are paying more than $16 for every $1 of earnings in the S&P 500, the highest that ratio has been since February 2011. I dont think this market is cheap by any means, said Brad McMillan, chief investment officer for Commonwealth Financial. Weve been urging cau tion for some time now. In the bond market, the yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose to 2.62 percent from 2.56 percent. On Friday morning, the Nasdaqs options market was halted due to a tech nical glitch. Regular stock trading was not affected. Among stocks making big moves: The Container Store more than doubled on its first day of trading on the New York Stock Exchange. The company raised $225 million in its initial public offering, pricing 12.5 mil lion shares at $18 each. The stock soared $18.20 to $36.20. First Solar jumped $8.83, or 18 percent, to $59.14. The solar panel maker said it had an adjust ed profit of $2.28 per share for the third quarter, blow ing past analysts estimates of $1.13 per share, accord ing FactSet.

Rick Scott leaves Saturday for a weeklong trip to Japan, marking the 10th time he has gone overseas to promote the state since he took office nearly three years ago. Scott, along with his wife, Ann Scott, will lead a contingent of more than 20 people from the Sunshine State, includ ing the head of the states largest utility company and executives from the states citrus industry. The governors travel costs are picked up by Enterprise Florida, which uses pri vate donations from large Florida-based companies. While some have questioned whether the trips are successful, Scott has defend ed going. Japan is a major trading partner with Florida and more than 270,000 Japanese tourists visit the state each year. There are an estimated 119 Japanese companies employing 20,000 people located in the Sunshine State. Florida is undoubtedly the number one tourist and business destination and our upcoming trip to Japan will allow us to meet with Japanese business leaders and talk with them about why they should invest in Florida and create jobs for our families, Scott said in a statement about the trip. This marks Scotts first trade-related trip to East Asia. He has taken previous economic development trips to the South America countries of Brazil, Colombia and Chile as well as Israel, England, France, Spain, Canada and Panama. Scott has already taken more trade trips abroad than former Gov. Charlie Crist did during his four years in office. Scott is scheduled to visit the Dominican Republic early next year. The former health care company executive is on a pace to match former Gov. Jeb Bush who spent eight years in office and took 16 trade missions. During his trip to Japan, Scott will visit the cities of Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya and his schedule includes meetings with Japanese executives as well as meeting with U.S. diplomats in the country.

Its been on my bucket list for some time. So I was happy that it was on our list of ports during a New England/Canada cruise I recently took with my Mom. Being a sports fan, Ive also always wanted to go to Fenway Park and see the Green Monster. Having been to Wrigley Field, PacBell Stadium, the old and new Turner Fields (even though I only went to the new Turner Field during the Olympics and not for a baseball game), and the old and new Yankee Stadiums, I really was missing one of baseballs other icons. I learned that tours of the ballpark are available as long as its not game day. Well, after further research I saw that the Red Sox were at home the day we would be visit-ing. I was very happy that I might be able to make this work not just tour the ballpark, but actually go to a game. However, our cruise ship docked at 2 p.m. and the Red Sox game started at 1:30 p.m. so I ruled out getting tick-ets ahead of time, unsure of when wed actually make it. So by now, my only option left was to ride by on the trolley tour and just take a look. Sadly, this opportunity was taken away from me too. As we were sched-uled to make the trek to Fenway Park, the game was over so all of the patrons were leaving and traffic was unbearable, so the dispatcher informed our trolley driver to skip that stop. I was very disap-pointed. The saving grace on the trolley tour was the Sadly, Fenway Park was a no-hitter on recent trip to Boston OPEN ROAD Sandy KishtonA s the air gets cool-er and Saturdays are filled with football games galore, we start thinking about something quick, deli-cious and downright sin-ful to snack on. One of our cooler weather food favorites are oysters! The old say-ing that you shouldnt eat oysters in months that dont have an r doesnt hold true anymore but we have to say we think oysters are their tasty best in the cold weather months. Were fortunate to have access to some of the very best oysters on the planet (we are a bit biased though), those grown in the panhandle of Floridas Apalachicola Bay. The little babies born in this water are true wild oysters not farmed. Their unique taste comes from the confluence of the fresh water from the Apalachicola River and the protected bay, mak-ing them not too salty, not too sweet and per-fectly paired with an ice cold beer. Mary Kay grew up in that part of the world and as you know spent many summers at the beach with her family. While everyone else enjoyed the oysters whether raw, steamed, sauted or fried, Mary Kay didnt touch one until well into her 20s when she got paid $20 to eat just one raw oyster. Well, that one didnt impress her too much and she didnt try them again until 10 years later. Something happened that fateful night when we popped some on the grill and cooked them just until the shells popped open. We scooped the gem out, dipped it in drawn butter, slapped it on a cracker and down the hatch it went. It was all over then. Next she had to try Genies fabulous Oyster Stew, which of course became a favorite Were on the half-shell TASTE continued on 3D BOSTON continued on 3D I n northern Florida, the change of seasons from summer to fall and winter means many things to many people. Many people point out that comfortable weather has returned and the unbear-able heat is gone for a few months. Along with that comes the delight of open-ing windows and letting in fresh air. Gardeners are quick to mention all the chores they will finally get to take care of during the cooler weather ahead. Along with the shorter days and cooler tempera-tures, however, we are also faced with losing our colorful plant blooms that breathed life into spring and summer landscapes.

Turns out this ones easier to solve than finding a tablemate for your obnoxious Uncle Hal. The answer? Elegant, no-cook dishes sprinkled throughout the meal. Holidays are a busy time for everyone, but most of all they are a time to be together with fam-ily and friends, said Lake City Reporters Taste Buddies colum-nist Genie Norman. Timesavers, such as no-bake, no-cook ideas that are tasty and easy to make, are wonderful ways to give the cook time to enjoy the holiday TV specials, parades, football games and just visiting while the turkey and casserole bake. Traditionalists may think nocook means youre cheating. But a first course of white gazpacho or a side dish of thinly ribboned butternut squash not only adds a splash of novelty and color, it also frees you up to spend more time pouring Champagne for your guests. Give your dishes a new twist with these recipes, Norman said, while still keeping the holiday tra-ditions alive. FIRST COURSE White gazpacho A twist on the traditional Spanish tomato soup, white gazpa-cho is made by pureeing blanched almonds with grapes, garlic, olive oil and day-old bread. Thats one place to do something a little more unusual, says Jack Bishop, editorial director of Americas Test Kitchen. Serve it in espresso cups and garnish it with toasted pumpkin seeds and a drizzle of pumpkin oil or sherry vinegar. Chopped apple and smoked paprika would also add a seasonal twist. The soup can be made two days in advance. CrostiniLets agree that toasting bread isnt cooking. Lightly toasted ovals of baguette topped with a variety of adventurous spreads make a lovely entry point to the holiday meal. Cookbook author Mark Bittman suggests topping your toasts with homemade beef tartar (be generous with the Worcestershire and capers) or cannellini beans pureed with olive oil, lemon and fresh rosemary.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2013 3D3DLIFEwith the first spoon full! Then she had to call her Daddy and break the news that she now liked oysters. We hope you enjoy some of our favorite oyster recipes below. The first two are quick, easy and delicious. The Oysters Bienville, while they take some preparation, is absolutely one of the best baked oyster recipes from New Orleans famous restaurant Antoines.Grilled Garlic-Romano OystersQ 1 lb butter, melted Q 3 Tbsp minced fresh garlic Q 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepperQ Tabasco to taste Q cup freshly grated Romano Cheese Melt butter, reduce heat to low and stir in garlic, black pepper and Tabasco. Grill oysters (in their shells) until they pop open. Remove top shell, leaving the oyster in the bottom shell. Pour garlic butter over the oysters and top with grated cheese. Grill until cheese is melted. *Note: This is a messy recipe so make sure you place tin foil on your grill grates for easy clean up! *** Genies Oyster Stew is really a replica of her mothers. Its never been written down so readers, be kind and when you make it add more or use less according to your own taste. Oyster StewQ pint of raw oysters in their own liquid or liquor as the old folks call itQ stick of butter Q 2-3 cups of milk Q 3 shakes Worcestershire sauce Q 3 shakes hot sauce (cholulla)Q Salt and pepper to taste Place oysters and butter in a saucepan on medium high heat. Stir til butter melts and oysters curl around the edges. Shake in hot sauce, Worcestershire, salt and pepper. Add milk and con-tinue stirring. Dont let it boil. Now heres where your own personal taste comes in: if you want it more buttery, add more butter; if you want it spicier, add more hot sauce; if you want more add more milk. Very versatile soup so try it your way. Youll find lots of recipes for oyster stew that add other ingredients like bacon or potatoes or scallions, etc. This is our favorite, just 7 ingredients and it takes about 10 min-utes. You can eat it with oyster crackers but the old fashioned way is to eat it with saltine crackers on top. Just cant be beat. *** Genies friend, Sharon Ruyle a retired VA employ-ee, shared her recipe for Oysters Bienville years ago. Sharon had lived in Mississippi and the recipe became a favor-ite of hers. This dish is served at the famous Antoines Restaurant in New Orleans. Opened in 1840, Antoines is the oldest family restaurant in the country. Famous for their Oysters Rockefeller that were created at Antoines. Named for the richness of the sauce, it is still a closely guarded recipe. The oysters are served on the half-shell placed in a shallow baking pan of rock salt and then baked. The Rockefeller sauces main ingredient is spinach with secret other ingredients. Many notable people have dined at Antoines includ-ing Franklyn Roosevelt, Pope John Paul II, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and of course, Genie Norman. Oysters (huitres) Bienville are Genies favorite prob-ably because they dont have any spinach in them. At Antoines the Bienville cost $14.25 a serving. Try our recipe and save a lot of money. This is a take-off of the recipe as Antoines doesnt share this recipe either. They serve these on the half-shell resting in a bed of salt also. You can do this too if you shuck your own oysters. Be careful when you serve it as that rock salt gets very hot.Oysters BienvilleQ 1 pint of select oysters Q 2 Tb. Butter Q cup chopped green onionsQ cup chopped fresh parsleyQ to cup chopped fresh mushroomsQ 2 egg yolks Q 1 cup half and half Q Garlic or garlic powder (optional)Q 1/3 cup sherry for cooking Q 1 can crab meat, drained Q 1 doz. Lg. shrimp, steamed, spiced and choppedQ Seasoned bread crumbs Q Parmesan cheese Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put 4-6 oysters in individual ramekins. Bake 15 min-utes at 400 degrees. Drain off liquid. Set aside. Saute onion, parsley and mushrooms in butter for about 10 minutes. Add Tb. Flour and cream and stir until slightly thickened. Mix egg yolk in the sherry and stir in to mushroom sauce. Cook until thickened. Stir in crabmeat and shrimp and cook until heated thru. Add salt and pepper to taste. Spoon on top of oysters. Top with seasoned bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. Bake at 400 degrees 10-15 minutes until bubbly. Place under broiler a minute or so to brown. So, after reading the Bienville recipe you can understand why Antoines charges $14.25 for theirs. We hope that one of these recipes will spawn inter-est in serving our Florida oysters more often. It is an acquired taste but once you acquire it youll love them. Just dont look at them when you eat them. Thatll help. opportunity to visit Cheers, the original bar on Beacon Hill that inspired the Cheers TV show. Its larger than it looks from the street. When you walk down the stairs from the street level, there are multiple rooms and 3 bars total. The set bar was back up a spiral staircase where we were able to find two seats. Ironically, we sat right next to Frasiers seat at the end of the bar. They had a name plaque on the bar top at his seat, as well as Norms opposite him at the other end of the bar. I didnt see any other regulars marked. After taking in a couple of local beers, including a Sam Adams, we made our way to one of the two gift shops for souvenirs. Other stops on our tour included the Boston Commons, where we got off and found and walked along part of The Freedom Trail on our way to Faneuil Hall and the Hard Rock Caf. We also passed by Quincy Market. I found some Boston Baked Beans (the choco-late covered nuts) that were a popular and favor-ite candy of mine growing up in one of the markets. It was also interesting to see neighborhoods, like the Back Bay, that Ive only read about in books. Its fun to have a reference now when reading about certain areas. From what I did see in the short amount of time we spent in Boston, it is someplace Id want to go back and explore more of. The next time, though, I will plan ahead and go when the Red Sox are at home so I can take in a game at Fenway Park. plants that will spice up a landscape, as well. Try letting some fennel and dill escape from the typi-cal herb garden and add some feathery texture to the flower bed. The huge leaves of giant mustard greens make an interest-ing backdrop for small flowers. And carrot tops or purple-top beet variet-ies make colorful edging plants for the fall flower garden. Our lawns in northern and central Florida also fade and brown in the winter as they go dormant. This is great for most of us because it means less watering, fewer cuttings, and no fertilizing. But there are still some homeowners who prefer green lawns year-round, even though the upkeep remains high. A practice called overseeding is a way of providing a temporary green, cool season grass through the winter months. Annual or perennial ryegrasses are most often used to overseed warm season lawn grasses. In North Florida, lawns should be overseeded from October to early November when daytime temperatures are around the mid-seventies. To determine how much annual ryegrass or peren-nial ryegrass to purchase, read the University of Florida document at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ep098 Soil preparation and proper watering are just as important as the planting time. The lawn must be mowed a little lower than normal, and all leaf and grass litter should be raked and removed. A final raking should open and loosen the surface so the seeds will make contact for good germina-tion. The newly seeded ryegrass should be lightly watered once or twice daily until the seeds have germinated, and then once daily for 2-3 weeks. After establishment, a winter lawn requires the same maintenance as the permanent lawn. This includes the chores of mowing, watering, fertiliz-ing and controlling pests. In March, the transition-ing back to the permanent lawn begins. Fertilizer is withheld, watering is reduced as much as pos-sible, and the ryegrass is cut very low to weaken it. Once the permanent lawn begins to grow again, normal lawn maintenance can be resumed. Then you will need to decide if, indeed, a southern Florida lawn in North Florida was worth the work and inputs. The UF/IFAS Master Gardeners are available on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at the Extension Office to answer your gar-dening questions. They are also available at the Ft. White library branch on Wednesday afternoons from 1-4pm. Soil pH tests are always free. 752-5384 Q Sandy Kishton is a freelance travel writer who lives in Lake City. Q D.

TASTEContinued From 1D COLORContinued From 1D BOSTONContinued From 1D but if you have a really exciting relish tray youll find people dipping into it throughout the meal, says Sarah Copeland, food director for Real Simple magazine. She suggests creating a relish tray from store-bought artisanal pickles green beans, beets, mushrooms, caper berries and bright, beautiful one-bites such as raw radishes. It will look very elegant, but it took you 5 minutes, she says.SIDES Brussels sproutsJust when you thought there was nothing new to do with these tiny cab-bage heads. Bishop sug-gests dressing raw shred-ded sprouts with lemon juice, Dijon mustard and minced garlic. Garnish them with toasted pine nuts and pecorino cheese. Its an interesting twist on Brussels sprouts, he says. People dont often think of them as a salad green. BroccoliThough we always think of it grilled or steamed, broccoli is another veg that doesnt need cooking. Instead, says Real Simples Copeland, thinly slice it and toss it with slivered mushrooms and red onion. A dressing of olive oil, cider vinegar, soy sauce, garlic and a mess of fresh herbs dill or basil or tarragon or all of the above ties together the flavors. People dont always remember that a lot of cruciferous veg-etables taste great raw, she says. Its a richly fragrant dish, but it comes together with no cooking at all. For the best flavor, she says, let it marinate overnight. SquashSeriously? Yes. Chef Chris Pandel, of Chicago restaurants The Bristol and Balena, plays off the squashs true status as a fruit by serving it raw. Strip the squash into rib-bons using a vegetable peeler, he says, then salt them and let them sit overnight in the refrigera-tor. Drain the water, then pile the ribbons onto a bed of endive. Sprinkle with toasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds (hulled), pomegranate seeds and lots of fresh mint and basil. A dressing of yogurt, ground cumin and coriander, cayenne, honey and lemon juice wakes up the whole thing. Its not just refreshing and light, but its also super season-al, Pandel says.SALADSJust because theyre the obvious way to go doesnt mean they have to be boring. Real Simples Copeland suggests a salad of greens, beans and grapes such as aru-gula, cannellini beans and halved red grapes. Store-bought spiced nuts round out the flavors. Its a real crowd pleaser, she says. And shaved fennel tossed with red onions, golden raisins and capers can be served tossed with whole parsley as a green, says Bishop. Its got lots of textures and flavors and its very crisp, he says.CRANBERRY SAUCEYou dont need to resort to a can to have no-cook cranberry sauce. On the back of just about every bag of fresh cranberries, youll find the formula for cranberry relish: berries, sugar, a whole orange and a food processor. Bishop suggests upscaling the old standby with chopped apple and ground ginger. Copeland offers a take on the Waldorf salad, adding toasted walnuts, chopped Granny Smith apples, orange zest and maple syrup to your finely chopped berries. Its also delicious if you want to serve it with a dollop of whipped cream, she says. Call it pre-dessert.DESSERTNo-cook pumpkin cheesecake that is, cream cheese and pumpkin puree poured into a store-bought gra-ham cracker crust is a traditional oven-free Thanksgiving dessert. But even this back-of-the package fare can work, Copeland says, if you deploy the secret weapon of all desserts. Freshly whipped cream is the ultimate treat, she says. A glug of amaretto in the pie, a handful of candied almonds on the top and its all good. Any time you can add one tiny luxurious element, Copeland says, youre adding a little delight to something thats very simple. The Associated Press contributed to this report.

By MELISSA RAYWORTHAssociated PressGetting a family organized requires more than a few well-chosen New Years resolutions. Increasingly, homeowners are carving out a physical space anything from a single kitchen cabinet to an entire spare room that can function as a family information center and workstation. In an effort to battle clutter and keep track of schedules, designer Brian Patrick Flynn helps clients kick the habit of spread-ing out items around their homes. These days, its pretty much a given that families use their kitchen islands, dining tables and/or cof-fee tables as prime real estate for laptops, school papers, iPhones and mail, says Flynn, founder and editor of decordemon.com. When Im designing entire homes, especially ones for young families, the first thing I focus on is locating a seldom-used corner, section or nook somewhere easily accessi-ble to create a creative and organizational hub. This usually follows my tirade of, No more using the din-ing table or breakfast nook as a clutter station! Here, Flynn and two other interior designers offer tips on creating the perfect family headquar-ters to wrangle homework assignments, invitations, permission slips, calen-dars and more.WHAT DO YOU NEED?The key pieces are: Q a calendar (paper, digital or both) that the whole family can accessQ accessible storage space for incoming mail, invita-tions and permission slips where things wont get forgottenQ a message board (dryerase white boards and/or corkboards are popular) where family members can post and share infor-mationQ a power strip for charging electronic devices, with shelf or desk space to keep those items while charging Ideally, the space will also include a work sur-face where kids can do homework and parents can handle tasks like fill-ing out permission slips. Many families also include a laptop or desktop com-puter for homework or checking e-mail. WHERE TO PUT IT?Homes built in the past few years often come with what Flynn calls a bonus room with no designated purpose. These small, spare rooms work well as a family organization cen-ter, as do mudrooms. Atlanta-based designer Mallory Mathison has helped clients convert a pantry or small closet into an organizational hub. She suggests removing the doors to open up the space, then adding a deep shelf that can be used as a desktop. Tack fabric to the underside of the shelf and hem it just above the floor, creating hidden stor-age space and a place to tuck a bench or stool. Shelves can be added to the wall above the desk-top, along with a message board and calendar. If you lack a spare room or closet, designer Cortney Novogratz sug-gests choosing one corner of your kitchen, since its a room the entire family uses daily. Novogratz, co-star of HGTVs Home by Novogratz series, lives in Manhattan with her husband and seven children. She often works with clients who have lim-ited space, so she advises them to use a single kitchen cabinet as their organizational hub. Novogratz suggests lining the cabinet door with the calendar and cork-board or dry-erase board. Then add small bins on the cabinet shelves for each family members items. A small laptop can be kept inside the cabinet and taken out for use at the kitchen table. For additional storage, she suggests buying a rolling cart with labeled drawers where each child in the family can keep things like pending work or art supplies. This can be wheeled around the kitchen or other rooms as needed. Novogratz says it helps kids stay organized and feel a sense of owner-ship over their work when they have a permanent space for it, even if its just a labeled drawer.

DEAR ABBY: I recently found out that after 13 years of marriage, my son and daughter-in-law are expecting a child; my first grandchild! I was overjoyed at the news. They live about 1,000 miles away from me. I mentioned to my son that I have been looking at flights and want to come out a week before her due date so Ill be there for the big moment, and stay three to four weeks to help with the baby. I was shocked when he told me they dont want me to visit until at least three weeks after the birth, and stay for one week MAX. He said my daughterin-law will need time to heal, and they both need time to adjust to being parents before they have guests. I am not a guest. I am the grand-mother! I was also told not to expect to take care of the baby because it is their job. It hurts so bad not to be wanted to share in the joy of the new baby. I have always dreamed of watching my grand-child take his or her first breath, and see the look on my sons face when he holds his child for the first time. Is there anything I can do to change their minds and allow me to be there for my son at this impor-tant moment? Do you agree that they are being unreasonable and cruel? FAMILY FIRST IN FLORIDA DEAR FAMILY FIRST: Im sure you are a loving mother, but I dont agree, and I doubt you can change their minds. If it is going to take three weeks for your daughter-in-law to heal, it appears the babys birth will be by C-section, and she will need time to regain her strength. The new parents will also need time to adjust to the babys sleep and feeding schedules. They will be sleep-deprived, and she will be nursing every few hours and not up for company. While you have always dreamed of being pres-ent at your grandchilds birth, the reality is your son and daughter-in-law would prefer this intimate moment be shared by them alone. Im sorry you are hurt, truly. Let them know you are will-ing to help them in any way you can on their terms, and take your cues from them. Do not take any of this personally. DEAR ABBY: Im in fifth grade, and I have noticed that teachers pick favorites. Id like to know if or how I could be one. NERVOUS STUDENT IN CALIFORNIA DEAR NERVOUS STUDENT: Teachers have favorites for vari-ous reasons. Sometimes it happens because they see something in a child that reminds them of how they were at that age. With others its because the student shows an interest in the subjects being taught, isnt disrup-tive and always tries his or her best. And that is what I recommend you do. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Letting go of the past will allow you to recognize new possibilities. Dont miss out on a chance to be or do something youve always wanted to achieve. Good fortune will be the result of honest assessment and unex-pected change. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Put partnerships first. Find out what the people in your life want and need from you and do your best to come up with the goods. Make your promises count and be gra-cious when accepting whats offered in return. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A challenge awaits you. Dont back down when you should face whatever comes your way with gusto and a winning attitude. An unusual job thats posted should not be overlooked.

6D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2013 6DLIFEBy SUZETTE LABOYAssociated Press T he hurricane-force thrust from a jet engine pushes Tarinan von Anhalt into the air as she splatters an array of colors into the wind and onto a blank canvas to create the abstract designs she has become known for. Instead of paintbrushes, she uses $10 million jet engines from a Learjet to hurl blues and purples with a force that cre-ates intense power and heat. The timing of the velocity and the heat and the paint and so many other condi-tions is what creates art, she told The Associated Press on Tuesday from a tar-mac in West Palm Beach. Von Anhalt began creating such one-ofa-kind and pricey artwork in 2006 after studying the work of her mentor and late husband, Prinz Jurgen von Anhalt of Germany, who is credited with creating this type of artwork about three decades ago. In a tight black Lara Croft-inspired pant suit, Princess von Anhalt grabs plastic bottles and jars of paint as she slowly makes her way across the tarmac to the blank canvas as planes take off nearby. With a small jet parked about two carlengths away, she stands close enough to the canvas to touch it. Von Anhalt then raises her empty hand to motion for the pilot to speed up the engine, and the splattering begins. Hurled into the air at a ferocious velocity, paint collides with canvas and slowly drips in different directions in Floridas humidity. The power of the engine and the heat of the creative process, Von Anhalt said, are addictive. When Im in the midst of the creation, I dont think of the force, she said. I dont think of the danger. I dont think of the heat. Im caught up in the moment. Its addicting and you dont want to stop. Flexjet, a private jet services company, partnered with the Jet Art Group to cre-ate different artworks to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Learjet. Von Anhalt has created about three dozen pieces so far, but declined to say how much her paintings go for. Its a passion like a hurricane, like a tornado, she said. And the more that the color gets laid down, the more I can see and predict what the painting is going to be. Other times, she admitted, she is surprised to see which direction the paint goes in the wind. Thats the emotion. Its an addiction. And how do you describe that? Its better than any-thing else.Photos by J PAT CARTER /Associated PressPrincess Tarinan von Anhalt poses for photo with one of her paintings in front of a Learjet earlier this year on the West Palm Beach airport tarmac.

Artist replaces paintbrush with jet engine thrust JET PAINTING Learjet celebrated their 50th anniversary this year with some special art By SUE MANNINGAssociated Press LOS ANGELES Heres a rule that only applies to dog beaches: they are all clothing optional. So if youre one of the rare owners that dress up your dog, designers have options for your beach-bound hound. From bikinis to surf trunks, clothing makers have found a niche to sell garb for the pam-pered pooch that has almost everything. Tommy Bahama Pets offers a Hawaiian shirt and a dress with a ruffled skirt made with the brands traditional hibiscus fabric. Designer John Bartlett makes a canine beach tank top. And Martha Stewart Inc. pro-duces a practical life jacket to give surfing and boating dogs a boost in the water. In addition to floral bikinis and colorful swim trunks, pet retailers sell wet suits, visors, sunglasses and Doggles (think: goggles for dogs). While the fashions may be fun they arent very practical, said Dr. Brittany King of Banfield Pet Hospital in Houston. Im a big swimmer and so is my dog, Hank, she said. While he has his fair share of doggie-friendly swim trunks, they are simply meant for fashion not function. Practical beachgoers should do their dog a favor and put sunscreen on furless areas, bring fresh water, treats, a towel and an umbrella for shade. And dont forget your own swimsuit.Dog day out: How to dress your pooch for the beach RICHARD VOGEL / Associated Press PhotoDog owners play in the surf with their pooches at the Huntington Dog Beach in Huntington Beach, Calif. Huntington, also known as Surf City USA, is one of the best known dog surfing beaches in the world. There are about 95,000 miles of shoreline around the United States and among the most treasured by dog lovers are those where you can unleash the beast.
