As he struggled to grab a life preserver tossed by one of his shipmates, the Battle of Okinawa raged around him. As chief gunner’s mate in the United States Navy, Pope was responsible for one of the mounted guns on the ship, the AK-26, that he was on. The cargo was ammunition. Seven men were thrown into the water after the Japanese bombed the ship, and four of them died. “For three or four weeks, nobody could hear each other,” Pope said. “We were all deaf.” Inspired by books of faroff destinations and beauti-ful islands, Pope, now 92, tried to join the Navy in 1939 at 19 years old. A farm boy from North Carolina, he swore he would see one of the islands in his books. “You had to be 142 pounds to join,” Pope said. “I was 132 pounds. [The recruiter] said go back home, eat bananas and come on back.” Pope came back in January, but the answer was still no. In May of 1940, Pope tried again. “I think he put his foot on the scale,” he said, laughing. He was shipped off to Norfolk, Virginia. Classed as an expert in powders, Pope became essential to his crew. During World War II, the bombs didn’t come pre-made. Instead, soliders were responsible for combining the powder and the bullet inside the artillery shell. Pope knew all the powders, how much to use, where to place them and how to set them off. “We invaded Okinawa on Easter Sunday, 1945, a bright beautiful day,” he said. “We were all exhausted from getting there, and we were on the beach before the Japs discovered us.” The United States Marines were already on the island, piling ammuni-tion and preparing for the battle. But the men just waited, and waited. “Then all hell broke loose,” Pope said. “They sent everything they had. We lost 6,000 sailors. It was more or less a naval war at that time.” According to historians, the Battle of Okinawa was the biggest of the Pacific island battles in World War II. The Okinawa campaign involved the 287,000 troops of the U.S. Tenth Army against 130,000 soldiers of the Japanese Thirty-second Army.

The Lake City VA Medical Center held its annual Veterans Day program Friday morning on its front lawn with local veterans as well as the VA Medical Center staff attending. During the program speakers told of the history of Veterans Day, and Maureen Wilkes, Lake City VA Medical Center associate director, recounted the past wars and how many American troops served in them and how many were wounded. She thanked them all for their service. “Today the nation pauses to honor all its men and women who served,” she said. “It’s a day for remembrance and gratitude.” Wilkes’ remarks were followed by an address from the program’s keynote speaker, Sgt.

She wasn’t experienced in the thoroughbred industry he loved, and her broth-er and sister wanted to sell his farm and all its horses. Instead, she persuaded her siblings to give her a chance at the head of Meadow Stud. Within five years, she had raced and sold two Kentucky Derby winners, saving her father’s farm.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comOLUSTEE — The Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park will get a new monument, but state officials have not yet determined where it will go, so they’ve sched-uled a meeting to get public input. Florida Department of Environmental Protection officials will conduct a public meeting in Lake City at 7 p.m. on Dec. 2 seeking input on a poten-tial location for the new monument. “The purpose of the Dec. 2 meeting is to take comment from any interested parties on determining a loca-tion for the monument,” said Patrick Gillespie, Florida Department of Environmental Protection press secretary. Controversy arose earlier this year when the DEP granted permission for a monument honor-ing Union soldiers to be erected at the park. State officials said there are three monuments dedi-cated to Confederate sol-diers in the park, but no monuments dedicated to Union soldiers. Some people oppose the new monument altogether, while others opposed its previously proposed location. Michael Farrell of St. OLUSTEE continued on 3A

Donald Trump who owns both the pageant and the Trump Doral golf club had been look ing to move the pageant from Las Vegas to South Florida. But after Mayor Luigi Boria cast the lone dissenting vote on a mea sure to authorize City Manager Joe Carollo to work to bring the pageant next year, Trump decided against the new location. Ed Russo, project con sultant for the Trump Organization, told The Miami Herald that they want to avoid awkward complications. Russo said: Its going to return to Las Vegas because of the lack of sup port from the mayor. An official announce ment is expected after Saturdays Miss Universe pageant. Mormon affiliate buying up land TALLAHASSEE The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is about to become one of Floridas largest private landowners in a move that is drawing speculation and even con cern among some conser vation and environmental groups. The St. Joe Company announced a massive deal this week to sell off nearly 400,000 acres, or most of its land holdings, to a company affiliated with the Mormon Church. The land consists of woods and rural areas stretching across a vast portion of the Panhandle, which remains one of the lesser developed portions of the state. But much of it also lies within 15 miles of the Gulf of Mexico. Family of shooting victim files claim TAMPA The family of a woman slain during the mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard is seeking $37.5 million from the government, saying the Navy and Department of Veterans Affairs ignored red flags about the killers deteriorating mental health. During a news confer ence Friday in Tampa, attorneys for the family of Mary DeLorenzo Knight said they were seeking the money in an administrative claim. The claim, one of the first steps toward filing a lawsuit, has been deliv ered to the agencies. Under federal law, the Navy and VA must inves tigate the claim and deter mine whether it has merit. If they think it doesnt, attorneys for Knights fam ily said they will sue. A VA spokesman and a spokeswoman from the Navy said they couldnt comment. Warriors get rehab with pro athletes GULF BREEZE Green Bay Packers offen sive lineman Josh Sitton is a tough competitor in a tough sport, blocking big defenders and tak ing heavy hits week after week. But the men and women Sitton considers tough are the wounded warriors he trained with throughout the summer at a Florida Panhandle reha bilitation center. Since 2010, more than 300 injured military mem bers from all branches of service have received care alongside college and pro athletes at Athletes Performance, an injury rehabilitation center. Its connected to the Andrews Institute, a sports-medicine hospital founded by Dr. James Andrews. Hes been the surgeon of choice for decades for top professional athletes including Michael Jordan, Adrian Peterson and Robert Griffin III. Sitton underwent offsea son conditioning there. It is amazing to see their work ethic, Sitton said of the injured military personnel he trained with. It is an inspiration when you see a guy who has had half of his leg blown off working next to you. It makes you do more. Former San Francisco 49er linebacker Alex Lincoln, now a vice president for Athletes Performance, said working with injured veterans has given him a deeper appreciation of the high-quality medical care that comes with being a pro fessional athlete. BENTONVILLE A fter years of legal wran gling, a renowned art collection including piec es by the famous painter Georgia OKeeffe and her late husband, Alfred Stieglitz, will make its debut at a museum in northwest Arkansas. OKeeffe gave the collection to Fisk University in Tennessee in 1949. Last year, a Tennessee judge approved a deal for Fisk to sell a 50 percent stake in the collection to the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art created by Wal-Mart heiress Alice Walton. The school received $30 mil lion as part of the deal. Tennessees attorney general had argued that selling any part of the 101-piece collection would violate OKeeffes wishes. An exhibition featuring the collec tion opens to the public on Saturday in Bentonville, Arkansas. It will be on display through Feb. 3. Wife: Trotter was treated for aneurysm CHICAGO The wife of Charlie Trotter said doctors discovered the acclaimed chef had an aneurysm months before he died and that hed been taking medicine to control sei zures, his blood pressure and high cholesterol. Trotter was declared dead Tuesday at a Chicago hospital after paramedics found him unresponsive in his home. An autopsy conducted Wednesday ruled out foul play or trauma, but the Cook County Medical Examiners office said an exact cause of death could not be determined until toxicology tests and other tests are completed. It could take up to eight weeks. In a statement to The Associated Press, Rochelle Trotter said the aneurysm was discovered in January and that doctors had prescribed the proper medication. According to a police report obtained by the AP, Trotters family said shortly after his death that the chef had flown to Wyoming against doctors advice. Rochelle Trotter disputed those suggestions, saying medical experts cleared him to travel and that hed returned Monday night from his most recent trip. She also said the autopsy indicates the travel is not connected with his death. Trotter closed his world-renowned restaurant in 2012, saying he planned to study philosophy. But a friend of his, Larry Stone, has said that Trotters health may have played a role in his decision to close the eatery after a quarter-century. The rough road to Armstrong Lie BEVERLY HILLS When Alex Gibney set out to make a movie about cyclist Lance Armstrongs 2009 Tour de France comeback, the documentarian admits he bought into the hype: The man whod cheat ed death was coming back to reign supreme and clean. All of us fans wanted to believe, said Gibney, who directed this summers well-received documen tary We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks. You want to root for peo ple. That is what sports are all about. In fact, it was such a positive project, Armstrong himself had a financial par ticipation in the film, Gibney said. The feel-good movie, as Gibney called the original version, was nearly finished when in 2011 Armstrongs ex-teammates, Tyler Hamilton and Floyd Landis, began going public about Armstrongs doping. Lots of people were doping in cycling, Gibney said, but the lie is what was really problematic with Lances story. Hed made cancer survivors complicit in his lie and the media bought in.

Cloud, a member of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, a fraternal order founded in 1881, is a department commander of the group that filed the paperwork for the monu ment. He said the push to have a monument to Union soldiers in the park began in 2011. The SUVCW proposed erecting a 10-foot tall, pol ished, black granite obe lisk. The projected cost of the monument has been estimated between $4,000 $12,000. The SUVCW is raising funds for the Union monument and hope to have the monument in place by 2015. Others have said the park already has a monument built by the United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1912 that honors troops from both sides, and that another monument isnt needed. The 1912 monument contains an inscription not ing that 5,000 Confederate and 6,000 Union troops fought there on Feb. 20, 1864, and that Union forces were defeated. However, another inscrip tion indicates a clear aim to honor the Confederacy: To the men who fought here in defence of their homes ... this monument is erected ... in commemora tion of their devotion to the cause of liberty and state sovereignty. In addition, there is an inscription on a metal strip around the perimeter of the monument, added in 1994, that dedicates the monu ment to these Southern units that fought here. The various units are then listed. Larry Rosenblatt, a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans who served as chairman of the 100-year anniversary of the UDC monument at the park last year, was lead ing the charge against the first proposed location of the monument, which was in the vicinity of several Confederate monuments. Rosenblatt and his wife Linda are also members of The Concerned Citizens for Historical Preservation of Olustee. In an e-mail to Gov. Rick Scott, she made reference to a petition being circulated against a new monument. The Concerned Citizens for Historical Preservation of Olustee have already accumu lated over 600 signatures of registered voters pro testing the placement of the Union monument in the immediate vicinity of the UDC monument, she wrote. We are intensifying our efforts to obtain three times that number if not more in hopes someone will listen to us instead of passing the buck between state employees and state representatives. To resolve the issue the Florida Department of Environmental Protection has solicited feedback from local individuals, re-enact ment groups and organiza tions. Gillespie said the Division of Recreation and Parks reached out to several groups for input about the proposal to have a new monument at the park. The groups and indi viduals include: Blue Grey Army, Commander for Battle of Olustee, Union Commander for Battle of Olustee, Olustee Citizen Support Organization, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, United Daughters of the Confederacy, Sons of Confederate Veterans and Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War. After thoroughly con sidering all of the com ments, as the agency responsible for present ing the story of the Battle of Olustee to the visiting public, the Department determined that a monu ment to Union soldiers in the state park would be appropriate, Gillespie said in an e-mail earlier this week. Gillespie said the depart ment has been gathering input since Sept. 27. The Department, using the historical monument expertise of our parks staff, determined that the monument wouldnt conflict with the pur poses of the state park, Gillespie said. However, the Department has been seeking public comment on where the best location is. The Department will compile public comments from the survey as well as at the Dec. 2 meeting to come to an agreement on where the monument should be. I dont have a firm timetable on how long that will take. Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2013 3A 3A HAVE QUESTIONS ON AUTO INSURANCE?

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS: If you require special aid/services for either City Clerk Draft springs legislation under fire By STEVEN RICHMOND County and city officials around North Florida are weighing in on a proposed piece of springs protection legislation that may place what some public officials consider unfair burdens on local governments and taxpayers. Drafted by Florida Senate and Majority Whip David Simmons (RAltamonte Springs), the Florida Springs and Aquifer Protection Act, as it is tentatively titled, aims to establish conserva tion safeguards over 21 spring protection zones (including the Ichetucknee) through measures such as wastewater regulation and fertilizer restrictions. For example, 50 percent of nitrogen in landscaping fertilizer would have to be slow release, farms would be required to fol low best management practices outlined by the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and sewage systems would require upgrades to meet certain chemical-related (particu larly nitrogen) guidelines. The effort is greatly appreci ated. Florida is long overdue as it relates to springs protection, County Manager Dale Williams said. I dont think anyone dis agrees with the goal, but the only issues are how you get to that goal. Although the legislation guar antees changes at no expense to individual property owners, the burden of financial responsibil ity would be passed onto local government. Williams said Simmons was in favor of using documentary stamp tax revenue to cover expenses, but that his approach wouldnt resolve 100 percent of the bill. Basically he left the remainder on local government, Williams said. It also requires some new legislation be adoptedhe placed that burden on local government as well...If [these changes] are good for the water, then the state should do that. We need to look at statewide legislation, not just local government. Simmons brought his draft to Altamonte Springs City Manager Franklin Martz to be reviewed by a panel of environmental and engineering experts for recom mendations. We fear the impact of the bill on taxpayers and ratepayers will be dramatic while benefits to the hydrological systems, both in terms of quality and quantity, will not be significant or justified by the costs, Martz said in an Oct. 31 memo to Simmons. Several other issues were addressed by Martz and the panel: Without guaranteed reim bursement for costs relating to septic system connection...those costs will be borne by ratepayers and taxpayers...; The bill creates...many addi tional regulations, some of which are already addressed in existing law; There appears to be a true conflict between the imposi tions (and incorrect assump tions) within the bill relating to reclaimed water and the proposed reductions in consumptive use of potable water...simultaneously disincentivizing both may ensure improvements to neither occur. The Altamonte Springs panel made several edits to the draft, including the elimination of endangered species language (reasoning FWC should han dle that) and adding language emphasizing the case-by-case approach individual spring pro tection zones require. However, Williams was con cerned that the draft didnt address the issue of nearby water management districts overdraw ing resources from Columbia Countys aquifer system. Why should Columbia County residents pay for a lot of the impact caused by places like Duval, Clay and St. Johns coun ty, Williams said. I dont think you can realistically justify that anywhere. I think people here are more than willing to pay their part, but why should they have to pay for 100 percent of what is a statewide resource? The Springs Revival Act, a dead bill from the 2013 legis lative session, was also being refilled for the coming legisla tive session by Senator Darren Soto (D-Kissimmee) and Representative Linda Stewart (D-Orlando). Were glad as a county that theyre addressing these issues, Williams said. But lets be open minded and reasonable when we address these issues. Takes control out of local hands, county officials contend. OLUSTEE Continued From 1A JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Larry Rosenblatt stands next to the 1912 Battle of Olustee monument. Father, son face charges in alleged check scheme By AMANDA WILLIAMSON A Lake City man and his son were arrested on Thursday after allegedly cashing $883 in fraud ulent checks at Campus USA Credit Union. Alton McDonald, 56, of 467 NW Lake City Ave., and Bryan Christopher McDonald, 22, of 277 SE Baya Dr., face charges of larceny and fraud. On Wednesday, Lake City Police Department Officer Ivan Useche arrived at Campus USA in reference to a fraud investigation. According to the LCPD arrest report, Branch manager Diana Parker told him a customer, Alton McDonald, had been depositing checks with insufficient funds. McDonald opened an account on Oct. 18 with $50, and since the opening date until Oct. 22 had made eight withdrawal transactions, the report said. All of the withdrawals with the ATM card were in differ ent locations, totaling $45.41. On Oct. 22, a deposit was made at the ATM in the amount of $260. Two minutes later, a withdrawal of the same amount was made at the same ATM, the report said. On Oct. 24, a deposit and immedi ate withdrawal of $180 was made. The same events happened on Oct. 26 and Oct. 27, in the respec tive amounts of $180 and $300. All the transactions were completed at 183 Bascom Norris Drive branch. According to the report, two of the checks were starter checks from Capital City Bank in Branford. When Parker contact ed the bank, she was informed McDonalds account had been closed. Three of the checks were made to Alton McDonald, while the other was made out to his son Bryan McDonald. On Thursday, Useche drove to Alton McDonalds home pro vided address, by Campus USA. Two contractors working on the apartments drywall informed him Alton McDonald had moved to a house at 277 SE Baya Dr. Useche found Alton McDonald sitting in his red Chevrolet at approximately 9:25 a.m., and he agreed to voluntarily go to the police department. Post-Miranda, Alton McDonald changed his story several times when talking about the dol lar amounts and the number of checks. He was arrested on Thursday and transported to the Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $10,000 bond. Useche returned to the home at about 11:16 a.m. in attempt to locate Bryan McDonald. When Useche reached the house, he found Bryan McDonald in the front yard. After Bryan McDonald agreed to be interviewed, they returned to the police department where Useche asked what happened at Campus USA. Bryan McDonald was also transported to the Columbia County Detention Facility in lieu of $1,000 bond. According to LCPD officer Craig Strickland, both Alton McDonald and Bryan McDonald allegedly admitted to committing fraud. The police department suspects there is a third person involved, but they had not made an arrest as of press time. A. Mcdonald B. McDonald Two hurt in crash after leaving bar By STEVEN RICHMOND Two women were injured in a single vehicle rollover accident following a night out, Florida Highway Patrol reports. Kristi Ann Morgan, 27, and Crystal Ann Peterson, 21, were headed east on US 90 near County Road 135 when their 1997 GMC pickup drift ed onto the south shoulder at 12:48 a.m. Saturday, FHP said. The vehicle then over turned, struck multiple trees and a fence before ejecting both occupants and coming to rest upside-down, according to a media release. Investigators said neither occupant was wearing a seat belt. Although Morgan and Peterson stated an unknown person they met at the County Line Bar was driving, investi gators found no third person at the scene, the release said. EMS transported Morgan to Shands at UF where she was being treated for serious injuries. Peterson sustained minor injuries as well. Charges are pending, FHP said. Report: Man stole ATV From staff reports A Fort White man faces charges of vehicle theft and burglary after he allegedly stole an all terrain vehicle from an out-of-town High Springs couple. Cory Lee Brodhead, 23, of 300 SW Dana Glen, Fort White, was arrested on Thursday, according to a Columbia County Sheriffs Office arrest report. Deputy Murray Smith arrived at a home in High Springs belonging to Clarence and Marion Hope in response to a burglary. Clarence Hope told Smith someone had taken an ATV parked in the barn. He had last used the ATV on Thursday, Oct. 31.


Just about anybody who runs for county commission around here, newcomer and incumbent alike, is sure to bemoan the sorry state of affairs surrounding the Bascom Norris Road construction project.It’s a constant refrain come election time. Had they been in charge, each says, local motorists wouldn’t still be waiting on the connector road’s completion. The project would be on budget and all would be well. But once they’re sworn in, it’s business as usual. Some new snag nobody saw coming sends them scrambling to explain yet another delay to their constituents. Or, as was the case at Thursday’s midafternoon commission meeting, scram-bling for John Q. Citizen’s checkbook to pay up to $1 million dollars in added, and apparently unforeseen, project change orders. The general sentiment among commissioners at Thursday’s meeting was, let’s pay the requested funds and get this over with. We agree the project has to be completed, and soon. Taxpayers can’t afford for it to drag on much longer. Still, this years-long undertaking has stretched the patience of the electorate. The lack of vision and oversight by the county, at times, has been embarrassing. From Day 1, our commissioners should have engaged this project with a better plan and a tighter grip. It has been mismanaged from the outset and contin-ues to drain county funds. It’s hard to imagine we would have had this rough a ride, over this many years, had our elected officials been on top of things the way we expect. No, not every contingency can be anticipated. But surely we can do a bet-ter job than this.

BY EMAIL: The neverending connector-road nightmare Obama’s scorn is misdirectedB eyond the relentless lies, paternalistic arrogance and show-stopping incompetence that now define the Affordable Care Act, the health care reform now sports two new features: an assault on free speech and severe scapegoating of a law-abiding indus-try. “White House officials have pressured insurance industry execu-tives to keep quiet amid mounting criticism over Obamacare’s rollout,” CNN’s Drew Griffin and Chris Frates reported Oct. 30. “After insurance officials publicly criti-cized the implementation, White House staffers contacted insurers to express their displeasure, indus-try insiders said. Multiple sources declined to speak publicly about the pushback because they fear retribu-tion.” While White House press secretary Jay Carney calls this accusa-tion “preposterous and inaccurate,” health insurers’ silence in this con-troversy is chilling. ... Obama has been anything but taciturn in his latest tactic: vilifying health insurers. “Before the Affordable Care Act, these bad-apple insurers had free rein every single year to limit the care that you received or used minor pre-existing conditions to jack up your premiums or bill you into bankruptcy,” Obama bellowed last week. As if prosecuting a prod-uct-liability case, Obama decried the evil insurers’ “cut-rate plans that don’t offer real financial protection in the event of a serious illness or an accident.” Some 4.2 million Americans with canceled medical policies now recognize that Obama lied just last Sept. 26 when he said, “If you already have health care, you don’t have to do anything.” As out-rage grew, Obama unveiled a new lie Monday to conceal at least 23 previous ones. He told supporters: “What we said was you can keep it (your health plan) if it hasn’t changed since the law passed.” “No, no, no, no, no,” the National Journal’s Ron Fournier protested. “That’s not what the Obama admin-istration said.” ... [W]hy would insurers suddenly cancel coverage for 4.2 million clients, and counting? Is this the lat-est innovation in customer service? “The health insurance companies are required to offer their custom-ers new plans that comply with all of the new federal benefit and regulatory requirements,” explains Grace-Marie Turner of the Galen Institute, a health-policy think tank. “It is reckless for the White House to blame the insurance companies simply for complying with this law.” Insurers are obeying Obamacare’s Section 2707: “A health insurance issuer that offers health insurance coverage in the individual or small-group market shall ensure that such coverage includes the essential health benefits package required under section 1302(a) of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.” These 10 new treatment categories include hearing aids, pediatric dentistry, eyeglasses for children, drug-addiction services, psychiat-ric care, and other things that not everyone wants nor needs. ... Any plan that lacks these goodies and was sold after Obamacare was signed on March 23, 2010, cannot be grandfathered and, therefore, must be canceled before Jan. 1, 2014. Obama concealed this detail when he said during the presiden-tial debate of Oct. 4, 2012: “If you’ve got health insurance, it doesn’t mean a government takeover. You keep your own insurance.” For those whose coverage predates Obamacare, federal law now mandates that if such plans have changed ever so slightly (say a $5 co-insurance boost) they become ungrandfathered and cannot be renewed after Dec. 31, 2013. This rigid no-change rule is like telling someone to hold his breath and then smacking him when he tries to inhale. Rather than let Obama slap them around in public, the top 10 health-insurance CEOs should man up, hold a joint press conference, and slam Obama’s destructive, self-serving lies. If these executives hang together, it will be tough for America’s Thug-in-Chief to hang them separately.

A growing sense of communityO ne thing Lake City has an abundance of that other North Florida communities envy is our growing sense of community. We have a positive pas-sion for where we live and work and other nearby towns are on the out-side tapping the glass and wishing they were on the inside, an active part of the excitement. Our community here in Columbia County cares about itself and works well together in civic areas for the good of the whole. There is a civic pride here that continually strives for positive growth and improve-ment. This past week, we’ve seen our community step up, pull together and showcase why our commu-nity spirit cannot be matched. We had several events that allowed an opportunity to showcase the charac-ter we possess. The Signature Chef’s Auction that annually benefits the March of Dimes saw a capacity crowd partici-pate in the event that traditionally is the early November kickoff to the holiday season of giving. It’s an inspiring scene with all the pro-ceeds going to medical research to assist premature babies. Businesses and individuals alike flock to this can’t-miss event. The Florida Gateway College Foundation’s annual luncheon was last week. During this event, the great work of the foundation is recounted and it continues to change and improve the lives of FGC students who are beneficia-ries of the financial assistance. Businesses, individuals and civic organizations strengthen the foun-dation’s presence in our community every year. It’s another example of how Columbia County pulls togeth-er to improve our quality of life. If you attended the Veterans Day remembrance ceremony on Friday on the front lawn of the VA Medical Center, you saw how patriotic our community remains. The VA is a huge employer in our community, but thousands of veterans here and from throughout the region seek medical assistance here in our com-munity. Lake City is literally a lifesaver for many of our distinguished veterans. A rite of passage every fall is the Columbia County Fair, which wrapped up another successful run last night at the fairgrounds. The team at Columbia County Resources puts on an amazing show every year. The fair is more than the midway and memorable food choices. The fair is an agricultural event that showcases the foundation of Columbia County. It also teaches students who show and sell live-stock great responsibility and basic business skills. The business com-munity rallies around this event and shows up in force in the booth areas to meet and greet the public. There are a lot of positive things going on in Lake City. If you’re new to the community or maybe just distracted from a routine, there are plenty of activities and groups that need active participation. Our com-munity has its arms open wide and welcomes active participation and leadership. Be proud of Lake City and Columbia County. Embrace it and the community will return the affec-tion.

The chamber is hosting a seminar called “Healthcare Reform 101” next week. The event will take place at 8 a.m. Thursday at the Holiday Inn & Suites, 213 SW Commerce Drive. The general information meeting is open to chamber members and the general public. The cost to attend for chamber members is $10 per person and $15 per person for non members. The costs includes the breakfast. People who plan to attend need to RSVP with the Lake City–Columbia County Chamber of Commerce at (386) 752-3690 no later than 5 p.m. Monday. Dennille Decker, Lake City–Columbia County Chamber of Commerce executive director, said the breakfast and information served up at the meeting will be for anyone who wants to understand more about what healthcare reform is and how it will affect you. “This seminar will be relevant from business own-ers all the way to the gener-al public,” she said. “Three local healthcare insurance agents will do the presenta-tion. They’ll talk about what healthcare reform means for you and your business, will it affect customers and they’ll also answer general questions.” Members on the panel will include Tyson Johnson with the Parks Johnson agency and Irv Crowetz of C/C and Associates. The panel members will provide a general overview and leave time for specific questions and answers, Decker said. The breakfast seminar is expected to last around an hour. The chamber decided to schedule the meeting after receiving questions from chamber members. “We have had several members ask us to help them understand and navigate what healthcare reform would mean to their small business,” Decker said. “We decided to go straight to the experts and allow them to break it down in easy to understand terms and allow (the audience) to ask questions directly to the panel.”


By TONY BRITT The sounds of the 2013 Christmas season will fill the air the day after Thanksgiving when local bell-ringers collecting funds for the Salvation Army launch their annual kettle campaign. Thursday afternoon, Ashley Shaffer, direc tor of social services for the Salvation Armys Gainesville office, was a guest at a joint Altrusa Club of Lake City and Rotary Club of Lake City meeting. The bell ringer pro gram is where the Salvation Army provided kettles that sit outside local business es and bell-ring ers seek financial con tributions for Salvation Army programs and ser vices. Volunteers from Altrusa and the Rotary clubs man those kettles, Shaffer said. They ring the bells to draw atten tion, bring holiday cheer and encourage people to donate to the kettle pro gram. Shaffer said of all the contributions raised dur ing the kettle program, in Lake City, 100 percent of the contributions go back into the community for Christmas gifts for chil dren, utility payment assis tance, food programs, and some burial assistance for needy families. Because the Lake City Kettle program is run exclusively by volun teers, there is no admin istrative costs, she said. That way 100 percent of the money thats donated goes right back into the community. sador for horse racing. Sound like a movie plot? It was, but one drawn from real life. Thats the story behind the 2010 Disney movie Secretariat, based on the career of the legendary racehorse that many experts consider the greatest champion of our time. Yet, as many filmgo ers learned, the real hero of the story wasnt Secretariat but Penny Chenery, whose determi nation kept Meadow Stable alive and made the story of Secretariat possible. If Secretariats tale has another chapter, it may be written by another unlikely heroine. Shirley Bennetts small farm off Old Wire Road doesnt bear much resemblance to the big-money horse farms in Kentucky or Ocala. But among the horses there are an aging daughter of Secretariat born four months after her famous father died in 1989 and her last foal, a son of the champion racer Leroidesanimaux. They are part of what Bennett calls Breeding With a Mission, and their purpose is to help keep the legacy established by Chenery and Secretariat (also known as Big Red) alive. Bennett has a solid busi ness background. Now retired from a position as a professional fundraiser for St. Judes Childrens Hospital, she was recently named Woman of the Year for 2013 by the National Professional Womens Association. But although Bennett is an accom plished horsewoman who was on the winning team of the first ever all-wom ens polo tournament, she didnt become involved with thoroughbreds until 2009 literally by accident. I had fallen in love with a beautiful son of Deputy Minister [another cham pion racehorse] who had suffered a bad leg injury, she recalls. I hoped he could be saved for breed ing, so I bought a few mares. But he died before we could try breeding him. And there I was with these mares and no stal lion. One of those mares was Secretariats Fire, a daughter of Secretariat. At the time Bennett wasnt thinking about preserving Secretariats bloodlines; she wanted to find another stallion tracing to Deputy Minister. So in 2010 she bred Secretariats Fire to champion racehorse Midnight Lute, a greatgrandson of Deputy Minister and, coinciden tally, a great-great-grand son of Secretariat. But before the Secretariats Fire foal was born, three things hap pened that set Bennetts dream on a new course. She saw the movie Secretariat when it was showing at Cinema 90 three times. She attended her first Kentucky Derby in 2011. And she met Penny Chenery at the Derby. She was just wonder ful, Bennett says, clearly savoring the memory. She was very interested when she found out I had a Secretariat daughter and she autographed a picture of Secretariats Fire for me. When I told her I had bred the mare to Midnight Lute, her eyes got really wide. She said, That should be a really good one. Keep me posted. Secretariats Fires colt was born on May 25, 2011 my birthday pres ent, Bennett said with a grin. Four months later, Secretariats Glory made his first public appear ance at the third annual Secretariat Festival in Paris, Kentucky, and Bennett was able to intro duce Secretariats grand son to Chenery. From then on, Bennetts dream crystallized into two parts: she would breed race horses descended from Secretariat, and she would create an organization to promote womens involve ment in racing. In September 2013, Bennett revisited the Secretariat Festival to unveil a new initiative aimed at doing just that: the Secretariat Sisterhood, which she is forming with Tennessee farm owner Penny Morrell and fel low Florida horsewoman Shanna Damien. The initial response was just overwhelming, Bennett said. We had literally thousands of women from all over the world come to our booth at the festival and tell us, When you get this thing going, Im in! And we had so many men ask, What about us? that were going to form a Secretariat Brotherhood as well to honor Penny Chenerys dad, Christopher Chenery. (More about the Secretariat Sisterhood can be found in the About Us section of Bennetts website, www.crownofglo Even though the Secretariat Sisterhood is just getting started, Bennetts dream is still growing. Im a momand-pop operation without the pop, she says. But if God wills, what Id really like to do is raise the money to create a Secretariat museum and a place where the pub lic can meet Secretariat descendants. Id also like it to include a school where women who want to become jockeys, trainers and breeders can learn what it takes to make it in the horse business. Its a big dream, but my mother always told me, If youre going to dream, dream big or dont bother to dream at all. Bennett hasnt been idle with the first part of her dream either. She now owns or co-owns 13 descendants of Secretariat, and four more foals carry ing Secretariat bloodlines are due next spring. She still has Secretariats Glory, currently recuperat ing from a training injury. Se hopes he will be able to race next year and is writ ing a childrens book about him, tentatively titled The Story of Glory. And she is the proud owner of My Storm Trooper, a greatgrandson of Secretariat who is slated to run in his first race on Monday at Gulfstream Park, near Miami. He isnt really my horse, you know, she says with a laugh. Just ask my grandson, Tristen Grennell. Hes been in love with this horse since he was born, and he named him. Hell be going with me to see Trooper race. If Trooper wins, I dont think well be able to keep Tristen on the ground. That might go for Bennett, too. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2013 Page Editor: Robert Bridges, 754-0428 6A SPECIALIZING IN: Non-Invasive Laparoscopic Gynecological Surgery Adolescent Gynecology High and Low Risk Obstetrics Contraception Delivering at Shands Lake Shore In-Ofce ultrasounds for our patients 3D/4D Entertainment Scans New Patients Welcome Call today for a personal appointment: 386-755-0500 449 SE Baya Drive Lake City, Florida 32025 WE ARE WOMEN, WE ARE M OTHERS, WE UNDERST A ND Board Certied Healthcare Provider offering DaVinci Robotic Surgeries.

This years fair was one of the best in a long time, Columbia County Resources Manager Linda Dowling said as she strolled the paths lined with skill games and color ful rides. I would estimate weve had over 25,000 people show up this year. As she passed by the Sweeney Family Band, an over-the-top hillbilly musi cal troupe new to the fair, Skeeter Sweeney took a break from playing his upright bass and cheekily called out, Hey there pret ty lady. Whats your name, gurl? Why didnt you come see me last night? If I recall, I saw you kissing a pig last night, banjo-playing frontman Slim Sweeney said. Well, my lips were chapped, Skeeter said. Now I aint gotta lick em no more. The audience burst out laughing before the sharptongued trio launched into a rendition of Man of Constant Sorrow. Were having a great time in Columbia County, Slim Sweeney said before their show. We travel all over the country. These are some of the best folk weve ever met, theyve taken good care of us. Weve been getting a lot more gospel requests than normal, too. Mike Thomas had one of the sweetest booths set up at the fair, selling a collection of honeys made by honey bees extracting nectar from local palmetto and gallberry plants. Ive been coming to this fair forI dont know how many years, Thomas said. People ask me why I dont retire. Well, why would you when youre doing some thing you love? Travis Cason, one of the skill game operators, esti mated hes seen anywhere from 300-3,000 people pass by his booth alone. Everybody wants to win the rastafarian Winnie the Pooh, Cason said. Its probably because Bob Marley is the man. Everyones into peace and love nowadays. Ron Diamond, a hypno tist and mind-bending enter tainer, commented on the benefit county fairs have on the local community. Folks, we needed somebody to grow our food in the future, Diamond said. Fairs like these provide children an opportunity to get up close and personal with livestock and agriculture. Theyre great because they spark an interest in children who might want to pursue a career in that field. Dowling smiled as the sun set on the fairgrounds. Now all we have to do is make it bigger and bet ter next year, she said.

killed, 31,807 wounded, and 239 missing in action. The Navy suffered 4,907 killed or missing aboard 34 ships sunk and 368 dam aged; 763 aircraft were lost. At sea and in the air, the Japanese expended roughly 2,800 aircraft, plus a battleship, a light cruiser, and four destroy ers, with losses estimated at upwards of 10,000. Pope never saw any of the 300 Marines that had been on board the AK-26 with him. We lasted 15 days out there, and then they started pulling us out, he said. You dont have time to be scared because youre sitting on a gun for 48 hours. Youre too tired to get scared. We slept on the gun. If we had it, we ate a cold sandwich. Shortly after the ships started pulling out, the Japanese began to back down. Pope had landed at Iwo Jima when America dropped the atomic bombs. That was my major battle, that was my last, he said. Pope quit the military shortly after, even though he had intended to make the Navy his career. After about 10 battles and two ships blown out from under him, Pope was worn out. Its all the same, he said. A war is a war. As the war ended, Pope and his ship traveled around the Pacific Ocean to clean up the islands that had been destroyed by war. On an island whose name he cant remember, Popes battalion discovered a pris oner of war camp. They rescued 14 Allied POWs. I sat down and cried like a baby, Pope said. Most of them couldnt even talk. What they did to them, you cant believe. During the war, Pope met his future wife, Adeline, on the streets of New York City when his ship docked in Brooklyn Harbor. They were mar ried for 53 years, until she passed away four years ago. Adeline is survived by Pope and their only child Kathleen. When Pope returned stateside with his ship mates, he tried to go home to visit his fam ily. The Navy denied his request. Frustrated, Pope decided not to re-enlist. Struggling to adjust to civilian life, Pope eventu ally found a job as a tailor for mens clothing and earned $200 a week in 1946. But the job was kill ing him. He lost weight as his health deteriorated. His family doctor pulled him from the sewing fac tory and told him to quit. Pope became a truck driv er, and within a short time his health returned. For a while, he drove trucks in the New York area. But a vacation to Florida changed his life after his wife purchased a home in the Sunshine State. Without his knowledge, she agreed to pay a Lake County couple $10,000 for their house. By 1968, the Pope family moved to Florida. Even though the VA Memorial Hospital has been treating Pope, a wounded WWII veteran, for over 60 years, the United States Navy has refused to give him his Purple Hearts. According to Roger Formosa, commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2206, the Navy has been unable to locate Popes records since they sank with the ship. He didnt go join some other navy and get those wounds, he added. Right now, we think they owe him about three. The VFW Post 2206 has already written the Secretary for the Department of the Navy a letter questioning why Pope still hasnt received his medals. By STEVEN RICHMOND Veterans and city employ ees are coming together to bring some muchneeded holiday cheer to the veterans of the Lake City VA Medical Center with their third annual Holiday Fundraiser Drive throughout the month of November. Organized by local veter ans David Petty and Gary Pinkham in 2011, the Holiday Fundraiser Drive aims to set up donation boxes around town for collecting various personal care and non-per ishable food items, such as coffee and toiletries, for veterans living in the VA Medical Center. What many people dont realize is that the VA is more than just a hospital, Petty said. Its a hospice and domiciliary, too. Even if you just donated your time to visit some of the veterans there, it does them a world of good. Fundraiser organizers hope to collect items such as coffee, creamer, sham poo, shaving cream, razors, toothpaste, robes, clothes and any other items the VA Medical Center may be lacking during the holiday season. The [VA staff] really do appreciate donations like that, Petty said. It does fill in some of the gaps throughout the year. It does make a difference down there. City Clerk Audrey Sikes and City Human Resources Director Michele Greene are working closely with the fundraising team, serv ing as the backbone of the whole operation, accord ing to Petty. When David brought up the idea, we couldnt resist, Greene said. We wanted to make it easy for people to donate. Many of the items were asking for are things people take for granted.

On Veterans Day we honor all those who served, he said. Its the man on the ground with a rifle who makes the final decision. We respect all those who gave to us what they gave in service. Were not policy makers, were policy enforcers for this great country of ours. Lambert said he was proud to serve as the events keynote speaker and ended his address with a Hoo-rah, to which Marines in the audience responded accordingly. It was a proud moment for me, serving as guest speaker, because I was up in front of fellow veterans, Lambert said after the event. A lot of veterans went before me and gave my generation a legacy of how to serve, take care of our county and it was also great to be around so many Americans that have served. Its a great feeling. I was very honored. Graduating from high school in Hamilton County, Lambert is familiar with the area, its customs and its people and said all those elements added to the uniqueness of his serving as the events top speaker. This means a lot to me, he said. I was gone for many years and the only reason I joined the Marine Corps is because the recruiter called me one night, he said. The military and the Marine Corps was good to me and its good to be home. I think Ive done all I can do. Im happy to be home and around the people, country and places where I grew up at. Judy Collier, a volunteer with the Marine Corps League Auxiliary, gave miniature flags from the VFW to people attending the event. We gave out pins to all the veterans, flags to them and all the veterans who came from the hospital, we gave them winter hats because it was cold, she said. Its important to give out the flags at this event because were recognizing the good jobs the veterans did for us. We appreciate them and its a way of pay ing back and saying thank you. Nicky Adams, VA medi cal center assistant chief of voluntary service, said she thought the program went very well. The weather compro mised with us, we had good attendance and everybody was here that was supposed to be here, she said. The program was for veterans, but Adams, who helped organize the event, said local youths were asked to take part so they could now and understand the importance of the occasion. I think its important for the youth to see what we do, how we celebrate and they need to be wit ness to the recognition, she said. Theyre up and coming. These are going to be tomorrows veterans, they need to see what were doing now so theyll have something to mea sure it up against.

From staff reports JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Columbia High football head coach Brian Allen takes a look at the Old Oaken Bucket trophy after beating Suwannee High 35-7 at the Paul Langford Stadium in Live Oak on Friday. Bucket blowout By BRANDON FINLEY It was lucky number seven for Columbia High as the Tigers knocked off Suwannee High in the Battle for the Old Oaken Bucket, 35-7, in Live Oak on Friday. Columbia was dominant on its first offensive posses sion, but it was the Tigers special teams that shined the most. The Tigers picked up 76 yards on their first drive, but were limited to only 120 in the first half. Still, Columbia built a 21-7 lead behind its special teams, which scored a touchdown for the third straight week. Theyre outstanding, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said. Theyre so important to a ball game and to us week in and week out. You dont account for those points. It can be a kickoff return or blocked field goal. For us to contin ue to find a way to score on special teams is a big factor, because it can pick us up on a night where our offense isnt hot like tonight. After Suwannee cut the lead to 21-7 with 3:48 remaining in the third quar ter, the Tigers found a way to turn on the offense and pull away for the 35-7 win. Columbia used 12 plays Columbia knocks off Suwannee, 35-7, on Friday. CHS continued on 2B Indians close out Buchholz, 35-21 By TIM KIRBY FORT WHITE I need cash now is the catch phrase on a television ad. Fort White Highs foot ball team turned to its money man when they needed him and Tavaris Williams provided the goahead score in the Indians 35-21 win over Buchholz High at Arrowhead Stadium on Friday. Despite dominating the Bobcats, Fort White found itself tied at 21-all with 2:56 to play. Enter Williams, who has scored 20 touchdowns this season but had seen the field for only one play in the first half. On his first carry, Williams gained 13 yards to the Fort White 40. Quarterback Andrew Baker, who led the Indians with 16 carries for 112 yards, added a 17-yard carry. Williams then ran for four yards and broke the next carry for a 39-yard touchdown. I wasnt supposed to play, but they told me to get in there and in the game, Williams said. I got in there and won the game. Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson said Williams had a slight hip flexor and hadnt been able to get warmed up. Jackson decided to keep him out with the playoffs starting next week. Until crunch time. Fort White ended the season at 7-1 and will host East Gadsden High in the opening round of the play offs next Friday. Buchholz closed out a 3-7 campaign with five straight losses. It should never had got ten so close. Fort White dominat ed the game, outgain ing the Bobcats 413-182. The Indians forced seven turnovers, including an interception that Melton Sanders returned 40 yards for a touchdown. Elijah Bryant and Kellen Snider also had intercep tions, while Devaundre Mathews, Joe Chatman, Jon Mattson and Snider recovered fumbles. The Indians led 13-0 at halftime on a pair of touchdown runs by Snider and an extra point from Sanders. A fumble on the open ing kickoff of the second Fort White ends championship regular season.

Fort White then ran 17 plays to three for Buchholz, but couldn’t pull away. After a fumble at the Buchholz 12, Sanders missed a field goal. He immediately made up for it with his intercep-tion touchdown. Baker con-nected with Blair Chapman on a two-point PAT. A dribbled kickoff and a a fourth-down try that was stopped gave Buchholz good field position and the Bobcats scored twice to tie the game. Baker, who completed his first three passes to convert third downs in Fort White’s scoring drive to open the game, added a touchdown with 13 sec-onds left to produce the final score. “Andrew did a great job and Kellen played some great football,” Jackson said. “The defense played outstanding. We put them in some bad situations. I am proud of the seniors. We got all of them in the game.” Winston, defense lead No. 3 FSU past Wake, 59-3By JOEDY McCREARYAssociated PressWINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Jameis Winston threw two touchdown passes, and No. 3 Florida State tied a school record with six inter-ceptions in a 59-3 rout of Wake Forest on Saturday that clinched an ACC cham-pionship game berth. Nate Andrews took an interception 56 yards for a touchdown and Jalen Ramsey returned a fumble 23 yards for a score on con-secutive plays. The Seminoles (9-0, 70) claimed the inside track to a BCS title game berth with No. 2 Oregon’s loss Thursday. They kept firm grasp of it by forcing seven turnovers and breaking the stadium record of 56 points they set in 1994. Florida State outgained Wake Forest (4-6, 2-5) 296166 and turned those turn-overs into five TDs and a field goal. Winston was 17 of 28 for 159 yards in two-plus quar-ters with an 18-yard TD to Kelvin Benjamin and a 2-yarder to Chad Abram that made it 42-0 at halftime. James Wilder Jr. and Devonta Freeman had early scoring runs 50 seconds apart. The Seminoles, 35-point favorites, scored their first three touchdowns in a 5:05 span of the first quarter. Chad Hedlund’s 23-yard field goal with 9:07 left helped the Demon Deacons avoid being shut out for the second straight week and for the third time in four meetings with Florida State. Kermit Whitfield returned the ensuing kickoff 97 yards for the TD that gave the Seminoles the BB&T Field scoring record. Wake Forest’s first two quarterbacks, Tanner Price and Tyler Cameron, com-bined for six completions and 66 yards passing. Price threw three interceptions on four attempts before he was pulled. The first two were returned into the red zone and Andrews took the third back for a score. In matching the team record of six interceptions set against Louisville in 1991, Florida State proved a point — there was no Hurricane hangover for these Seminoles after rout-ing rival Miami 41-14 last week. Now the challenge the rest of the way might be to avoid boredom: Boston College is the only team to either hang within 14 points of the Seminoles or score more than 17 points against them.


LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2013 3B3BSPORTS CHS: Tigers finish regular season 9-1 Continued From Page 1B JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High’s Jaidyn Rogers drives down the field w ith possession of the ball during a game against Fort White High on Oct. 28.CHS picks up win over Hamilton to end streakBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comAfter falling in threestraight contest, Columbia High’s Lady Tigers soc-cer team rebounded with 3-0 win against Hamilton County High. The Lady Tigers were coming off losses to Lincoln, Chiles, and Santa Fe before picking up the win against Hamilton.. “We’re playing hard, but fell short,” Head coach Lindsay McCardle said of the Lady Tigers’ losing streak. “I’m so proud of the progress we are making as a team. We are improving each game and the girls continue to work so hard. We are young, so playing teams full of juniors and seniors is challenging, but we will continue to focus on the positives and improvements we are making each game.” Alyxx Lloyd scored two goals and Jessica Chapman scored one goal against Hamilton. “Our end goal is district playoffs,” McCardle said. “So I am proud of my girls for all their hard work and effort.” The Lady Tigers host Suwannee High at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday. COURTESYRegion winnerColumbia High swimmer Lindsay Lee won the backstroke in the Region 1-3A meet at Cecil Aquatic Complex in Jacksonville on Thursday. The senior qualified for her fourth trip to the state meet. Lee also is a member of Columbia’s 200 medle y relay team that advanced to state. Hannah Burns qualified for state in the 500 free and 200 IM. Lee and other Tigers have a chance to advance in other events once region ti mes are compiled. on its first drive to rumble 76 yards down the field and Lonnie Underwood capped off the drive with a score from four yards. Suwannee was helped by way of three penalties for a total of 45 yards on its first drive and had a chance to cut the lead to 7-3 early when Trevor Ross lined up for a 25-yard field goal. His attempt sailed wide right, however, and the Bulldogs would remain in neutral the rest of the first half. After the Tigers went three-and-out on their sec-ond possession, Columbia’s special teams made its first appearance. A snap went over the head of Wyatt Jarvis on the Bulldogs’ punt attempt and Columbia downed Jarvis at the 12-yard line to take over in the red zone. The Tigers would only need one play to take a two-touchdown edge over the Bulldogs as Nate Taylor hit Alex Weber on a 12-yard bubble-screen play to give Columbia a 14-0 lead with 10:07 remaining in the first half. It didn’t take long for the special teams to make another impact as fresh-man Don Robinson came through on Suwannee’s next punt attempt to block the punt and run it in for a touchdown from 20-yards out. The rest of the half turned into a stalemate with Columbia leading 21-0, but Trey Marshall had his best half since returning to the Tigers three weeks ago. Marshall recovered a fumble and picked off a pass to keep the Bulldogs off the board and Allen said that the Tigers saw pieces of the old Marshall. “Every week he is getting closer,” Allen said. “If he started out at 75 percent, last week he was 90. This week, he was probably 95 percent, and next week we expect him to be back to his old self. That intercep-tion was big for us and it was good to see him flying around to the ball. It’s good to see him out there excited and playing with controlled chaos.” Columbia began the second half the same way it ended the first half — with an interception. Facing a third-and-23 situation after a combined sack from Bryan Williams and Malechi Jean, Roger Cray picked off a Steve Anderson pass to set the Tigers up at their own 45-yard line. Columbia drove to the Bulldogs’ 30, but had to set-tle for a 47-yard field goal. Brayden Thomas’ attempt sailed left, and the Bulldogs capitalized on their next possession. Suwannee drove 80 yards on nine plays before Jai Kinsey rumbled in from 13-yards away to cut the edge to 21-7 with 3:48 remaining in the third quarter. Columbia answered with its own sustained drive, moving the ball 80 yards on 15 plays and using 6:27 of the game clock to reclaim a three-score edge. Kamario Bell was the workhorse of the drive car-rying the ball 10 times for 52 yards and a touchdown from five-yards away with 9:13 remaining in the con-test to give Columbia a 28-7 lead. Bell again did the work on Columbia’s next drive with five carries for 35 yards and rumbled in from nine yards for the 35-7 final. “It’s outstanding that he’s able to come in and give us that added presence when Lonnie wasn’t playing as good as he has,” Allen said. “He came in fresh and that’s what made us so good last year was having three guys. It’s good for us to have that going forward to know that we can count on him.” Columbia ended the game in scoring position, but showed mercy on the Bulldogs after Dariaun Dallas scampered 45 yards to put the Tigers back in the red zone with just sec-onds remaining. Instead of adding insult to injury, the Tigers watched the clock roll and turned their focus to next week’s showdown in the opening round of the Class 6A play-offs against St. Augustine High at 7:30 p.m. on Friday in St. Augustine. “The next game is more important,” Allen told the team after the game. “We play 10 to be able to play the five that come after the 10. We’ve had a bit-ter taste in our mouth for three-straight years. It started with Bartram Trail two years ago, and there’s still the bitter taste from Navarre last year.

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2013 Page Editor: Tim Kirby, 754-0421 6BSportsBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comGAINESVILLE — The bottom has officially fallen out in Gainesville. Vanderbilt handed Florida its first loss at home against the Commodores since 1945 and may have ended the Gators’ chances of qualifying for a bowl game. Vanderbilt hadn’t beaten the Gators — home or away — in 22 seasons, but the Commodores became bowl eligible for the third-consecutive sea-son under head coach James Franklin with the 34-17 win on Saturday. With three games remaining against South Carolina, Georgia Southern and Florida State, Florida will need to find a way to pick up two victories to continue its streak. If Florida fails to make a bowl, it would be the first time since 1990. Despite Florida’s offense outgaining the Commodores 353-187, it was turnovers that did in the Gators. Tyler Murphy set a career high in passing yardage, but also threw four interceptions, which would result in three touchdowns for Vanderbilt. Murphy completed 28-of-45 passes for 297 yards, but the four passes he didn’t complete will be the ones that the Gators remember. Vanderbilt took a 10-0 lead in the first quarter after Murphy’s first inter-ception when Andre Hall returned it to the Florida 10-yard line and Jerron Seymour scored a touchdown on the next play. Kenny Ladler picked off a Murphy pass to set up the Commodores next touchdown as Vanderbilt took over at the Florida 22-yard line. Vandy would make the score 17-0 when quarterback Patton Robinette scrambled in for a score from five-yards out on the following drive. Francisco Velez was responsible for Florida’s only points in the open-ing half when the Gators reached the edge of the goal line, but were forced to kick a field goal to make the score 17-3 at the half. After a tipped pass resulted in Andrew Williamson picking off Murphy for a third time, Seymour scored his second touchdown of the game and Florida trailed 24-3. He would add a third touchdown in the fourth quarter to give Vanderbilt a 31-10 lead, before Florida showed any signs of life. Florida had cut it to 24-10 on the drive previous to Seymour’s third touchdown with Kelvin Taylor scor-ing on a four-yard run, but the Gators never mustered a serious charge. The Gators’ final score came when Murphy connected with Ahmad Fulwood for an 11-yard score with 7:50 remaining. I remember my first football game, perhaps more vividly than a lot of games I have witnessed over the years. I remember the excitement of going, the sound of the crowd, the nervous tension I felt. It was a new and glorious experience. The year was 1991 and Florida was play-ing rival Florida State. I was seven and I’ll never forget the 14-9 score or the first quarterback that would become my football hero. His name was Shane Matthews and that Christmas, my parents bought me a No. 9 jersey, which was the number Matthews wore at Florida. I wore it with pride until Danny Wuerfell came along and my second jersey was purchased. My days of wearing jerseys are behind me, but on Saturday I was lucky enough to see the experience of a first football game from the other side. I don’t have children of my own yet, but I’ve been dating a woman with a child from a previous marriage for a time I won’t disclose in the paper for personal reasons. I never thought that I would be able to handle dating someone with a child, mainly because I felt my own insecurities might stand in the way. It’s funny how a child can quickly capture your heart and change all of that. His birthday is on Tuesday and he’s hav-ing a Gator-themed birthday party next Saturday when he turns seven, but his first pres-ent came from watching the Gators on Saturday. I’ll always remember my first game, but there’s truly something special about passing on my love to a kid that I have quickly fallen in love with. Whether the relationship works out with his mother or not, I hope he remembers this day years later in his life. Maybe one day when he’s close to turning 30, like myself, he’ll look back and smile — despite the score.

2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10-16, 20132CBIZ/MOTLEYexpected to fly. But don’t fret, there are some things you can do — in some cases paying a little extra — to make your trip more pleasant, or to at least buffer the damage if something goes wrong.DELAYS— If you miss your connection — or bad weather causes delays — the airlines will automatically rebook you on the next available flight. However, with flights at near capacity, the next open seat could be several days away. — Don’t like the flight you’re rebooked on? Get in line to speak to a customer service representative. But also, call the airline direct-ly. If the phone lines are jammed, try the airline’s overseas numbers. You’ll pay long-distance rates, but might not have to wait. Finally, consider sending a Tweet. — Consider buying a one-day pass to the airline lounge. For one thing, there are usually free drinks and light snacks. But the real secret to the lounges is that the airline staffs them with some of its best — and friendliest — ticket agents. The lines are shorter and these agents are magically able to find empty seats. One-day passes typically cost $50.SEATS— If you and your loved ones don’t have seats together already, and don’t want to pay an extra $9 to $99 domestically for a “premium” coach seat, it’s very likely that you will sit apart. — Set up alerts for seat openings. offers free notifications when a window or aisle seat becomes vacant. For 99 cents, it sends an email if adjacent seats become available. — Check the airline’s website five days before the trip. That’s when some elite fliers are upgraded to first class, freeing up their coach seats. Another wave of upgrades occurs every 24 to 48 hours. — Check in 24 hours in advance, when airlines start releasing more seats. If connecting, check for open seats 24 hours before the second flight departs. — Keep looking. Even after checking in, seats can be changed at airport kiosks and on some air-lines’ mobile applications.LUGGAGE— Weigh a bag at home first. Anything over 50 pounds (40 pounds on some airlines like Spirit) will gen-erate a hefty overweight surcharge — typically $100 — in addition to the typical $25 checked bag fee. — Before your bag disappears behind the ticket counter make sure the air-line’s tag has your name, flight number and final des-tination. As a precaution, place a copy of your flight itinerary inside your suit-case with your cellphone number and the name of your hotel. — If you can’t live without it, don’t check it. A lost bag can take days to recov-er. Don’t pack medication or outfits for tomorrow’s meeting or wedding in the bag you’re checking. The same with jewelry or elec-tronics. — You could be asked to check your carry-on bag, given today’s crowded overhead bins. Pack a small canvas bag inside the carry-on.

Wells Fargo has been quite success-ful in cross-selling, getting existing customers to sign up for new prod-ucts or services. Not everything in its last quarter was rosy, though. Revenue dropped by 4 percent, and mortgage origi-nations dropped by 29 percent as interest rates rose. Rising rates have an upside, too, though, as they can increase a bank’s interest spread, as it charges its borrowers more.

LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10-16, 2013 3C 3CBIZ Lawyers: Insurer to pay Three Cups charity $1.2M By MATT VOLZ Associated Press HELENA, Mont. An insurance com pany will pay $1.2 million to a charity cofounded by Three Cups of Tea author Greg Mortenson in a settlement over the legal costs of a lawsuit and an investiga tion into Mortenson and the Central Asia Institute, attorneys involved in the settle ment said. The settlement, if approved, will mark an end to more than two years of legal troubles for Mortenson after Minutes and author Jon Krakauer published reports that alleged Mortenson fabricated parts of his best-selling books and mismanaged the Central Asia Institute. After those reports, then-Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock launched an investigation into the charity. A settle ment required Mortenson to repay $1 mil lion and made fundamental changes to the institutes structure. Four readers then filed a lawsuit that claimed Mortenson, co-author David Oliver Relin, publisher Penguin and the Central Asia Institute were involved in a fraud conspiracy by Mortenson lying in his best-selling Three Cups of Tea to boost sales and donations to the charity. Three Cups of Tea and the sequel, Stones Into Schools, recount how Mortenson started building schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Three Cups of Tea has sold about 4 million copies since being published in 2006. A district judge threw out the lawsuit, and the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the ruling. Along the way, Mortenson and the Central Asia Institute racked up approximately $1.8 million in legal fees defending themselves in the investigation and the lawsuit. The charity sued Philadelphia Indemnity Insurance Co., saying the insurer was obligated to pay for all of its defense costs, but offered to reimburse the institute 35 percent and Mortenson 25 per cent of their defense fees in the lawsuit. The insurer offered to reimburse 20 percent of Mortensons costs and all of the Central Asia Institutes costs for the state investigation, according to the complaint. The insurance company said in court filings that certain allegations against Mortenson dont fall within the policy, including the pub lication of material that the insured person or company knows is false. The $1.2 million settlement was ham mered out in a private mediation conference held Wednesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeremiah Lynch in Missoula, said attorney John Morrison of Helena and Billings attorney Carey Matovich. Matovich represented the Central Asia Institute, and Morrison represented a law firm that defended Mortenson in the inves tigation and in the lawsuit. The settlement still must be approved by U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen. The judge has given the sides until Dec. 6 to file dismissal papers. Philadelphia Indemnity Insurance attor ney Brian Harrison declined to comment Friday, saying the settlement was confi dential. Mortenson declined to comment. CHAD J. MCNEELEY /DOD Local villagers attend the opening of Pushghar Village Girls School in Panjshir Valley, Afghanistan, July 15, 2009. U.S. Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, helped dedicate the school, located in a valley 60 miles north of Kabul. Greg Mortenson, the author of Three Cups of Tea, built the school to promote and support com munity education, especially for girls, in remote regions of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Mortenson Q&A: What are trans fats? By MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press WASHINGTON You may not even know you are eating them, but trans fats will eventually be a thing of the past. The Food and Drug Administration says it is phasing them out, saying they are a threat to public health. Some questions and answers about the dangerous fats: Q: What are trans fats? A: Trans fats, also called partially hydroge nated oils, are created when hydrogen is added to vegetable oil to make it more solid. They can contribute to heart dis ease and are considered even less healthy than saturated fats, which can also contribute to heart problems. Q: How do I know if I am eating them? A: You wont be able to taste them, but they do help give a more solid texture and richness to certain foods, like baked goods and ready-to-eat frostings. Some restau rants use them to fry food and they are also some times used in microwave popcorn, biscuits and pie crusts. Youll know you are eating them by looking on the nutrition label of a packaged food the FDA has required labeling of trans fats since 2006. Q: Why are they so bad for you? A: Trans fats can raise bad cholesterol and lower good cholesterol. That can contribute to heart disease the lead ing cause of death in the United States. Q: Are all fats bad for you? A: No, but they should be eaten in moderation. Unsaturated fats found in nuts, vegetable oils and fish are the best for you. Saturated fats mostly derived from animals are less healthy and should be less than 10 percent of a persons daily calories. Total fat should make up no more than 35 percent of calories a day, accord ing to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Q: How long have these trans fats been around? A: For over 100 years, according to the American Heart Association. They were first found on gro cery shelves in 1911, with the introduction of Crisco vegetable shortening. Its use became more wide spread during World War II when butter products were rationed and people started using margarines that contained trans fats. Many margarines are now trans fat free, as is Crisco. Q: How will the trans fats be phased out? A: The FDA announced Thursday that it has made a preliminary deci sion that trans fats no longer fall in the agencys generally recognized as safe category, which is reserved for thousands of additives that manufac turers can add to foods without FDA review. Once trans fats are off the list, anyone who wants to use them would have to peti tion the agency for a regu lation allowing it. Such a petition would be unlikely to be approved since the FDA has determined that trans fats are a threat to public health. The agency hasnt yet said what the timeline will be for elimi nating them but is taking comments from industry on what would be appro priate. Q: Havent a lot of trans fats already been phased out? A: Yes. A series of local laws, starting with New York City in 2008, has already prompted the food industry to find alterna tives. The industry esti mates that almost threefourths of trans fats are gone already. According to the FDA, trans fat intake among Americans declined from 4.6 grams per day in 2003 to around one gram in 2012. Q: If many are gone already, then what are the benefits of phasing them out? A: The FDA is aim ing to get rid of those trans fats that are left in the marketplace. Commissioner Margaret Hamburg said the move could prevent 20,000 heart attacks and 7,000 deaths a year. Q: Will it be hard to find substitutes? A: In some cases, no. Frying oils are easily sub stituted and food scien tists have already figured out how to substitute other fats for trans fats in many items. In other cases, it will be harder. Ready-to-eat cake frosting, for example, gets some of its solid shape from trans fats. Companies will have to figure out how to keep the item the same without them. Q: Will I notice the change? A: Probably not. Trans fats dont have any par ticular taste, and in most cases other fats will simply be substituted. Your heart might notice, though. Michael Jacobson of the Center for Science in the Public Interest says the prohibition is one of the most important life saving actions the FDA could take. Brazil asks hotel chains to explain World Cup prices By TALES AZZONI AP Sports Writer SAO PAULO Brazils justice ministry is asking the nations main hotel chains to explain the high prices for rooms during the 2014 World Cup. The request comes after several com plaints from consumer advocates and a study by the countrys tourism board that showed exorbitant prices will be charged during the monthlong tournament. Among the companies notified by the ministry Thursday were Accor, Choice, Louvre, Blue Tree, Nacional Inn, Wyndham, IHG and Bourbon. The Brazilian Association of the Hotel Industry also was notified. The ministry said Friday the compa nies have 48 hours to respond to the request. Tourists are consumers which require special protection because they are out side of their city or country, Amaury Oliva, director of the ministrys consumer rights secretariat, said in a statement. We are working to make sure that they are well received and that the services we provide have quality and fair price. The ministry said it wants the hotel chains to provide the average rates charged in the past during other highdemand events in the 12 World Cup host cities, so they can be compared to the prices for the tournament. Although price increases are expected during special events such as the World Cup, officials suspect the chains might be overcharg ing more than usual this time. Calls to the Brazilian Association of the Hotel Industry were not immediately answered Friday. The tourism board, or Embratur, this year showed that rates will rise up to 500 percent during the World Cup in some hotels offered by the FIFA-appointed agency MATCH Services, prompting sev eral consumer rights groups to demand government action. Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff last month created a committee to monitor abusive price hikes of hotel rates and plane tickets during soccers showcase event. The government also said it will inves tigate whether MATCH, FIFAs official accommodation agency, was involved in cartel practices that may lead to price hikes during the World Cup, a claim FIFA and MATCH have repeatedly denied. Brazil Sports Minister Aldo Rebelo, the government official in charge of prepara tions for the World Cup and the 2016 Rio Olympics, earlier this year pledged zero tolerance for hotels charging abusive room rates. He said significant hikes would hurt Brazils image abroad and threaten to keep tourists away. Although Brazil has said it will not try to control market prices, Rebelo warned that hotels that raised prices excessively would feel the heavy hand of the law, adding that consequences included pos sible hotel closures. Twitter stock slides 7 percent By BARBARA ORTUTAY AP Technology Writer NEW YORK Twitters stock slid more than 7 per cent on its second trading day Friday, after the popu lar short messaging ser vice saw a huge first-day pop in what turned out to be a smooth public debut. Such volatile trading is common for freshly public stocks as investors make decisions with limited insight into how well com panies will do in the long run. Although there are a few outliers, most analysts believe the appropriate price range for Twitters stock is in the $30s and low $40s. The mean tar get price analysts have set for the stock, according to FactSet, is $40, with targets ranging from $29 to $54. Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter arrived at his $37 price target by assuming Twitter will double its 230 million monthly users to 460 million over the next five years while increas ing the number of times users look at Twitter every day. Pachter estimates Twitter will deliver $3.5 bil lion in EBITDA earn ings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortiza tion by 2018. Twitter is likely in the early innings of its growth, Pachter wrote in a note to investors. We believe that the majority of the worlds 2.4 billion Internet users have great potential to find some thing or someone on Twitter that they are interested in. San Francisco-based Twitters stock fell $3.25, or 7 percent, to $41.65 in trading on Friday despite an uptick in the broader market. The shares are still up 60 percent from the $26 IPO price Twitter and the IPOs underwriting bankers set Wednesday night. Twitter made $1.8 billion in the offering. On Thursday, the companys stock jumped 73 percent in its first day of trading, creating hordes of new millionaires and even a few billionaires.

Applicants must be coun ty residents, be at least 18 CLASSES continued on 3D By AMANDA WILLIAMSON C rippled and scared, Emily quickly snuggled her way into the hearts of employees at the Lake City Humane Society. But, because of her injuries, the orga nization couldnt keep her. Rescue Coordinator Debra Ludwig knew she had to find a home that would be able to take care of all Emilys needs, includ ing x-rays, tests and more. After a couple of weeks, Little Guild of St. Francis in Connecticut agreed to take her. We dont know what happened to her, said humane society employee Brian Kline. The way she acted at home, it looks like shes was hunched up her whole life... After a couple days, she opened up. Lake City Humane Society manager Teena Ruffo picked Emily up on Lake Jeffery Road, originally believing she had been hit by a car. Her knees appeared broken. Turns out, we think she was born that way, Ludwig said. But she gets along fine, runs a bit and even plays. Shes very sweet, and very loving. Unfortunately, the shelter couldnt pay for her medical needs. As many dogs as they receive, it is impossible to treat every one of them. Once, they picked up a dog whose collar was growing into his neck, but the issues vary. Sometimes, the shelter can fundraise through Facebook to help. As soon as Emily checked in at Columbia County Animal Control, Kline brought her over to the humane society. Hope is here She was so skittish, he said. But once they get to this side, its not so bad. We know we can get them a home. We know we have hope over here. Ludwig started working imme diately to get the word out about Emily. She took pictures, then e-mailed them to a list of rescue shelters around the country. According to Ludwig, there are rescues around the country that handle different types of dogs specific breeds, big dogs, small dogs and special needs dogs. But she didnt get much response. Reaching out to the national website,, Ludwig asked that Emilys picture be dis tributed. We got a lot of responses, but [Little Guild of St. Francis] was the only rescue that offered to take her, she said. They just saw her picture and took her with no questions. Heading home The rescue had already sched uled a veterinary appointment for Emily when she arrives in Connecticut. After her evaluations, if the veterinarian determines she Emilys going home Lake City Humane Society searched far and wide to find a home for one special dog COURTESY PHOTOS Emily was found on Lake Jeffery Road and brought to the Lake City Humane Society. Unfortunately, her medical bills were too expensive for the society to afford so they searched on Facebook and via other websites for someone who could take Emily in and provide for her. On Saturday, Oct. 26 Emily made the last leg of her trip to her new home in Little Guild of St. Francis in Connecticut. EMILY continued on 3D The new owners from Little Guild of St. Francis in Connecticut flew down to Lake City to pick up their new pup, Emily.

Niche lle Demorest with the UF/IFAS Extension came to the class to teach a lesson on foodborne illnesses and other germs that are easily passed by persons and surfaces, and that we don’t always wash our hands as thoroughly as we think.Gardening in FloridaThe University of Florida/IFAS Extension, 971 W. Duval St., will be hosting ‘Gardening in North Florida Day’ on Tuesday, Nov. 12 from 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Extension office.

Church youth groups from different denominations in Suwannee and Columbia County along with seniors, children, young fami-lies, health care professionals and business people across the area teamed together to provide fresh, clean water in well projects for Sudan, Africa. 200 registered to walk. The walkers enjoyed a buffet in the lovely First Baptist dining room on the Lake. Local business owner food donations were very much appreciated. We were also able to bless Lad’s Soup Kitchen in Lake City with fresh food that day. Over $ 7,000.00 has been raised. For more information, or if you would like a presentation, please contact the area representative coordinators, Carol and Lewis Hudgins at 386-935-2997. Walking for water and wells in Sudan, Africa Cancel your FINES with FOODThe Columbia County Public Library will once again partner with the Christian Service Center for a one-week Food for Fines Project. From November 18-24, for every one non-expired, sealed, non-perishable food item that is brought to any one of the three CCPL locations, the library patron will be able to exchange the item for $1.00 in overdue fines and fees. One item equals $1, five items equals $5 and so on. The food collected will be delivered to the Christian Service Center in Lake City for local distribution. Food collected at the Fort White Branch Library will be delivered to a local food bank. Food will be accepted only during the seven-day project period. The Library did a 3-week Food for Fines Project in 2008 and collected 2,469 food items; 5,303 items were collected during 21 days in 2009; 4,277 items over 7 days in 2010; 4,018 items over 7 days in 2011, and 3,165 items in 2012 over seven days. Some Library patrons just brought the food and did not ask that their fines be paid down because they thought it was for a good cause. This very worthy project allows library patrons an opportunity to reduce their fines and fees, plus help those less for-tunate in their community by restocking food shelves! For more information, please call 386758-2101. Bring in non-perishable food items to the library Nov. 18–24 and be debt-free.A s I was writing a newsletter article for the Friends of the Library newsletter on the many outstanding programs the Library provided in 2013, I real-ized once again just how important the Friends group is. Without their financial support, we could not have brought Columbia County citizens the varied, interesting, and fun programs for all ages throughout the year. Since I received my Master’s Degree in Library Science in1972, I have worked as a librar-ian in six states and held a variety of positions in many different types of libraries. I have never had the pleasure of working in a library before with such a dedicated and sup-portive Friends group as the Friends of the Columbia County Public Library. This group is also a past winner of sev-eral annual awards given by the Florida Library Association. If you are looking for an end-of-the-year tax deduction, I cannot think of a more deserving 501c3 organization than the Friends of the Columbia County Public Library. The Friends financial support brings delightful programs for all ages of Columbia County resi-dents. The Friends also support the Library’s adult literacy program and the annual Children’s Summer Reading Program. Friends’ mem-berships start as low as only $5 per year for indi-viduals and go up to $100 per year for sponsors, although any donation is welcomed. There are so many worthy organizations like the Friends of the Library and sometimes you may think about donating to a national organization. Our Friends group is local and all of their money is spent on local programs. But, what about charitable organizations that are not local, how can you be sure their money is well spent? The Library can help you decide by provid-ing you with information about charitable giv-ing. There are national non-profit organizations that help you through the maze of thousands of charities – which are the best that actually give away most of their money? You can go to to try to get a sense of what some of the best charities are. It has interesting “Top Ten” lists, such as the 10 Consistently Low Rated Charities, the 10 Top Notch Charities, and the 10 Charities Always in the Red, plus many more. This website also describes their method-ology on how they rate charities. Another charity evaluator can be found at and is an independent charity watch dog. You might want to look at several of the char-ity evaluator organizations and compare their infor-mation. The library provides free access to many online databases with articles on charitable giving and how to effectively evaluate organizations. We want our donations to go the furthest and do the most good. If you would like to join, or donate to, the Friends of the Library you can pick up a membership form at any of the three CCPL locations. If you are look-ing for information about charitable giving, be sure to ask the library staff for assistance.

After rising for decades, total vehicle use in the U.S. – the collective miles people drive – peaked in August 2007. It then dropped sharply during the Great Recession and has large-ly plateaued since, even though the economy is recovering and the population growing. Just this week, the Federal Highway Administration reported vehicle miles traveled during the first half of 2013 were down slightly, continuing the trend. Even more telling, the average number of miles drivers individually rack up peaked in July 2004 at just over 900 per month, according to a study by Transportation Department economists Don Pickrell and David Pace. By July of last year, that had fallen to 820 miles per month, down about 9 percent. Per capita automobile use is now back at the same levels as in the late 1990s. Until the mid-1990s, driving levels largely tracked economic growth, according to Pickrell and Pace, who said their conclusions are their own and not the government’s. Since then, the economy has grown more rapidly than auto use. Gross domestic product declined for a while during the reces-sion but reversed course in 2009. Auto use has yet to recover. Meanwhile, the share of people in their teens, 20s and 30s with driver’s licenses has been drop-ping significantly, sug-gesting that getting a driver’s license is no longer the teenage rite of passage it once was. Researchers are divided on the reasons behind the trends. One camp says the changes are almost entirely linked to the economy. In a few years, as the economy continues to recover, driving will probably bounce back, they reason. At the same time, they acknowledge there could be long-term structural changes in the economy that would prevent a return to the levels of driving growth seen in the past; it’s just too soon to know. The other camp acknowledges that eco-nomic factors are impor-tant but says the decline in driving also reflects fundamental changes in the way Americans view the automobile. For com-muters stuck in traffic, getting into a car no lon-ger correlates with fun. It’s also becoming more of a headache to own a car in central cities and downright difficult to park. “The idea that the car means freedom, I think, is over,” said travel behavior analyst Nancy McGuckin. Gone are the days of the car culture as immor-talized in songs like “Hot Rod Lincoln,” ‘’Little Deuce Coupe” and “Pink Cadillac.” “The car as a fetish of masculinity is prob-ably over for certain age groups,” McGuckin said. “I don’t think young men care as much about the car they drive as they use to.”Americans are driving less as car culture wanes SOUTHERN LIVIN’ PHOTOS, BRANFORD /COURTESY

More than 80 people attended Harvest Hoedown, held at Prairie Creek Lodge in Gainesville. Guests enjoyed local, organic food prepared by Sweetwater Branch Inn, live music by Fiona Bas and Wax Wings, dancing, an old fashioned cake walk and a silent auction. “We were really excited to host this event for our members,” said FOG Executive Director Marty Mesh. “Harvest Hoedown was a way we can say ‘thank you’ to all of our supporters who advocate for organic and sustainable agriculture throughout the state.” FOG membership includes updates on the lat-est organic news through The Organic Beet, online access to organic resourc-es across the state for farmers and consumers and discounts at events and with various partners, including the Southern Exposure Seed Exchange. There are no set membership levels, so the amount of giving is determined by the donor on their ability to support FOG’s mission.

For more information, please visit Medical Center earns ‘Top Performer’ From staff reportsLake City Medical Center was named Top Performer on Key Quality Measures by The Joint Commission, the leading accredi-tor of health care organizations in America. Lake City Medical Center was recognized by The Joint Commission for exemplary performance in using evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgi-cal care, children’s asthma, stroke and venous thromboembolism, as well as inpatient psychiatric ser-vices. New this year is a category for immunization for pneumonia and influenza. Lake City Medical Center is one of 1,099 hospitals in the U.S. earning the distinction of Top Performer on Key Quality Measures for attaining and sus-taining excellence in accountabil-ity measure performance. The hospital was recognized for its achievement on the following measure sets: heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care. The rat-ings are based on an aggregation of accountability measure data reported to The Joint Commission during the 2012 calendar year. The list of Top Performer orga-nizations increased by 77 percent from last year and it represents 33 percent of all Joint Commission-accredited hospitals reporting accountability measure perfor-mance data for 2012. This is the third year in a row that Lake City Medical Center is being recognized as a Top Performer. Award standardsEach of the hospitals that were named as a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures must: 1) achieve cumulative performance of 95 percent or above across all reported accountability measures; 2) achieve performance of 95 per-cent or above on each and every reported accountability measure where there are at least 30 denom-inator cases; and 3) have at least one core measure set that has a composite rate of 95 percent or above, and (within that mea-sure set) all applicable individual accountability measures have a performance rate of 95 percent or above. A 95 percent score means a hospital provided an evidence-based practice 95 times out of 100 opportunities to provide the prac-tice. Each accountability measure represents an evidence-based prac-tice – for example, giving aspirin at arrival for heart attack patients, giving antibiotics one hour before surgery and providing a home management plan of care for chil-dren with asthma. “Lake City Medical Center and all the Top Performer hospitals have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to quality improve-ment and they should be proud of their achievement,” said Mark R. Chassin, MD, FACP, MPP, MPH, president and chief executive officer of The Joint Commission. “We have much to celebrate this year. Nearly half of our accredited hospitals have attained or nearly attained the Top Performer dis-tinction. This truly shows that we are approaching a tipping point in hospital quality performance that will directly contribute to better health outcomes for patients.”Committed to safety“We understand that what matters most to patients at Lake City Medical Center is safe, effective care. That’s why we have made a commitment to accreditation and to positive patient outcomes through evidence-based care processes. Lake City Medical Center is proud to be named to the list of The Joint Commission’s Top Performers on Key Quality Measures,” said Mark Robinson, Lake City Medical Center’s CEO. In addition to being included in the release of The Joint Commission’s “Improving America’s Hospitals” annual report, Lake City Medical Center will be recognized on The Joint Commission’s Quality Check website ( The Top Performer program will be featured in the December issue of The Joint Commission Perspectives and The Joint Commission: The Source. Scouts shop for support of LAD Soup KitchenFrom staff reportsGirl Scout Troop #1227 has been working on earning their Brownie “Philanthropy” Badge. In early September, the group leaders received notice from the Girl Scouts of Gateway Council office of a grant program from Winn-Dixie. The Council was offering $20,000 in grants with a $1000 maximum award to each troop. After applying for the grant, Troop #1227 was the first to receive word back — and was awarded the full $1000. Upon receiving notification of the grant money, the group pulled their brans together and decid-ed on two organizations that they wanted to help. Lake City’s LAD Soup Kitchen was on their minds for the Thanksgiving season, but it was discovered that the kitchen was in need of aid sooner rather than later. On Oct. 27, the troop held a huge food drive at Publix to help LAD as soon as they could. Passing out wish lists to entering customers and collecting the donations as they exited, the group collected a whole wagon full of food. Over 50 people donated cash to the cause, as well. Harveys also donat-ed cases of Kool-Aid mix in four different flavors. Immediatedly after the Publix food drive, the group visited LAD Soup Kitchen with the donated items. However, the girls weren’t done with LAD — and still had money to spend. The second organization they chose to help was the Catholic Charities Backpack Program, in which youth from area schools are sent home for the weekend with a back-pack full of food to keep their tummies full and happen until they return to school on Monday. With the two organizations ready and waiting, the troop headed to Winn Dixie on Nov. 6 to spend their grant money on food for LAD Soup Kitchen and supplies for Catholic Charities. On Nov. 13, the troop will do a formal presenta-tion of our purchases to the LAD Soup Kitchen originator, Pastor Cleopatra Steele and to the Catholic Charities rep-resentative, Lynn.

Ludwig plans to keep up with Emily’s progress, and as been receiving a steady flow of e-mails since the dog left Lake City. Emily flew out of Lake City Airport on a volunteer plane with Pilots & Paws. She landed in Georgia, where another volunteer pilot flew her on the second leg of the journey to North Carolina. Her final flight was on Saturday, Oct. 26. “It takes lots and lots of people to get one dog to Connecticut,” Ludwig said. “We have a very compassionate group here, and Emily is the perfect example.” Even though Emily has left Lake City, approxi-mately 50 dogs and a col-lection of cats still wait at the Lake City Humane Society for a forever home. Furry companions cost $120 for a dog and $75 for a cat. “If people can’t adopt, they can foster,” Ludwig said. “If they can’t foster, they can volunteer. If they can’t do any of those things, we appreciate dona-tions.” EMILYContinued From 1D TANGO FIRE comes to Gainesville on Nov. 20From staff reportsGAINESVILLE — Tango Fire, a dance company from Buenos Aires, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20 at the Phillips Center.

DEAR ABBY: My brother-in-law cheated on my sister two years ago. He was caught by the private eye his lov-er’s husband had hired. My sister took him back and has been trying to be “the good wife,” but he has never really seemed to be sorry or a changed man. My problem is I can’t stand him. When we get together as a family, I know I’m supposed to be civil and respectful, but I ask myself, “Why?” I love my sister and the children. The holi-days are coming. I’d like to ask him if he’s faith-ful now, but if I did, I know he’d only lie. Can you offer me some advice? — HOLDING A GRUDGE IN MINN. DEAR HOLDING A GRUDGE: Yes. For the sake of your sister and the children, please resist the urge to make things more difficult by confronting your broth-er-in-law. Asking him about his fidelity status would embarrass him and possibly terminate their participation in any visit. Because your sister is trying to make her marriage work in spite of the hurt her husband has caused, the kindest thing you could do for her and the children would be to make the reconciliation as easy as possible. Tempting as it may be, please don’t stir the pot.Man reminds couples to share informationDEAR ABBY: My beautiful wife and I were a team for many years. She was the brains and I was the brawn. She took care of business matters, taxes and household duties. I did the repairs, vehicle upkeep and took care of the lawn and our garden. She was a computer whiz, while I remained computer illit-erate. As we advanced in age, I made prepara-tions for my demise. I had everything perfectly planned. Then the unexpected happened. My wife died suddenly. I was devastated. Then I real-ized I was also totally lost. She had gone completely paperless. I had no knowledge of anything. Some things were filed in the com-puter and others in the filing cabinet. I didn’t know her email address, any account numbers and no passwords. All business transactions stopped completely, and my credit rating plum-meted. It has been a year since her death and I’m still trying to get every-thing corrected. Please remind your readers that the word “assume” can be a real meanie. — SOMEWHERE IN TEXAS DEAR SOMEWHERE: What a sobering letter. Usually the surviving spouse is the wife who was left in the dark. I’m glad you wrote, and I hope your letter will be a wake-up call to couples about sharing information. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Stand up to anyone trying to bully you. Use your intelligence and speed to outmaneuver a confrontation. Re-evaluate your personal and professional positions. Make whatever improve-ments are required to reach positive goals. Take respon-sibility and build a better future. ++++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Emotional deception must not come between you and your hard-earned cash. A short trip or researching what you need to know in order to make a personal decision will pay off in the savings you earn by being diligent. ++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may feel restless and in need of a change, but whatever you decide to spend your money on must not be frivolous. Invest in your skills, talents or a ser-vice you can offer. Turn what you have to offer into some-thing tangible. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Let your true feelings show. If you don’t ask for things or answers, you will never know where you stand. You are in for a surprise that will lead to positive change. A nudge can be a good thing. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Protect your heart, your cash and your reputation. Problems at work will esca-late if you aren’t creative in the way you handle sensitive issues. Take a day trip some-where that is conducive to clearing your head and figur-ing out your next move. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Start your year-end preparations early and you will put your mind at ease. Knowing what you have in the bank and what your dis-posable income is will help you make better choices. A personal partnership will improve if you are affection-ate. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Stick close to home and don’t take emotional, physi-cal or financial risks. Play it safe and avoid being sorry. Don’t let the unexpected changes others make alarm or confuse you. Stick to your plans and you’ll reach your goal. +++++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Let your past be your teacher. Dig up creative ideas you shelved and put them back into motion. Keep your distance from anyone showing signs of emotional instability. You need a little time to follow your heart and your dreams. ++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You can sell what you have to offer and advance, but don’t promise something you have no inten-tion doing. It’s important to keep the peace, but even more important to tell the truth. Deal with unwanted situations and move on. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Take a leisurely break and you’ll come up with some ideas that will please the people you care about most. Plans for home improvements or discussing your next vacation or family project will win you favors and affection in return. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): You’ll have trouble making good deci-sions if you let your emotions interfere. Revisit mistakes you’ve made in the past and it will help you make better choices now. Learn from the past, live in the moment and improve the future. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Personal contracts and making a promise to some-one you care for will help you feel better about the future. Knowing which way you are heading and the commitment you are prepared to make will open up all sorts of opportuni-ties. +++ Abigail Van THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Winner of the 2005 and 2007 Grammysfor Best SpokenWord Album 6 Relief for the snowbound 10 Seal words3XWRQHVKDQGV together 19 Setting for Henry -DPHVV7KH$PHULFDQ 20 Actress Chaplin of *DPHRI7KURQHV 21 Company whose logo was,appropriately,crooked 22 Burrow, perhaps23 Many service dogs, after 29-Across? 5RLVZLIH26 ___ Stanley Gardner 27 French colony until 1953 7KH:DUULRU Princess 7KH\JHWVWXIIHGDW Greek restaurants 31 Rapper with the 2013 No. 1 album%RUQ6LQQHU 33 Sees red34 Eighty-sixes)RLOXVHUVZRUGV38 Foreshadows39 A/C measures 40 Serious break, after 48-Across? 42 Author John Dickson ___ 43 Mao ___-tung46 Harvests,GRQWNQRZZK\ BBBWKLVZD\ 48 Schedule planners50 Years, for Cicero51 On the q.t.53 Sail extender54 She, overseas56 Greek goddess of witchcraft 59 Salinger title girl60 Legendary Scottish swimmer, after 66-Across? 7DUWWUHDWV3RWWHUVEDVH69 Painted crudely71 Gulf of ___72 Marx without much to say 74 Cruiser repair site77 List component81 Circus founders, after 89-Across? 7KH/LRQ.LQJ lioness 85 Overflowed87 Swelled head?,FHFUHDPEUDQG,FHFUHDPWUHDWV91 Shield border92 Mastodon features93 Clobber94 Jet Ski competitor97 Forces from office98 Begins to wake 99 Where Margaret 7KDWFKHUVWXGLHGchemistry, after108-Across? 101 Winglike7KH.LQJDQG, role 106 Ulrich of Metallica107 Obliterate108 Short-lived pests RUDQDOWHUQDWLYHtitle for this puzzle 110 Prefix with genarian 111 Money holders112 Guam, e.g.: Abbr.113 Only inanimate zodiac sign 114 Lee of Marvel Comics 115 Beginning116 Northeast vacation ORFDOHZLWKWKH 7KH/LRQV6KDUH authorDown 1 Car with a lightning bolt in its logo 7KH7LGH3 River of Pisa7RN\REHDXW\PD\EH5 Smokestack emission6 Poe poem7RQ\ZLQQHU/HQD8 All that ___ bag of chips 6HFRQGZRUGRI$ 7DOHRI7ZR&LWLHV 7KHPRUHWKHBBB1%$V6KDTXLOOH and Jermaine 12 Psychedelic experiences 13 Shape (up)14 Glenfiddich bottle size 15 Wipes off, say16 Caterpillar, for one17 Dancer Alvin,URQ24 Book in which Moses is born 29 Split the check7KH\UHZD\RXW32 Buds33 Ball game35 Med. test6DLQWVKRPHIRU short 37 Feds)UHGHULFNVRI Hollywoodpurchases )OXWWHUDVRQHV eyes 41 Adjusts carefully7ZLQKXOOHGYHVVHO43 Many a broken statue 7LJKWHQRQHVEHOW3ROLWLFR.HIDXYHU48 Hockey fake49 Phone button+HUHVORRNLQJDW \RXNLGDGGUHVVHH 52 Mother, e.g.: Abbr.55 Psychedelic drug57 Mary Lincoln, ne ___ 58 Jackson-toBirmingham dir. 60 Earthy pigment61 Santa ___62 Damages/DZ2UGHU 698IRUFH 0DQ\DFROOHFWRUV resource 65 Preacher, for short67 Fourth-longest river of Europe 70 Powerful line3XFNVPDVWHU2YHU7KHUH soldiers 76 Word of woe78 Does what George WashingtonFRXOGQW" 79 Oscar winner Jannings 80 Lead-in for physics DQGSLHPDQ" 82 Enthusiastic reply83 Grease dissolver85 Casual top86 Medal awarded to MacArthur in W.W.,DQG::,, 89 Superlative for Atlanta,QWHUQDWLRQDOAirport +ROLGD\,QQFR star 91 Favored against the field 92 Scrap94 Performs unaccompanied 95 Perfect96 Vessel with an arch97 Some exams98 Drink loudly 100 Andrews of Fox Sports 101 Vicinity103 Pen points104 Great-grandson of Mark Antony 105 Quickly, quickly2UJSURWHFWLQJ $PHULFDVFRQVXPHUV 0DUFR5XELRV home: Abbr.

Get the facts! 6DLIFEBy JENNIFER FORKERAssociated Press O ne was a stock-broker, another a computer whiz. There’s a therapist and a small-business owner. Each retired from a traditional career and launched into another in the arts. “Do I still have nightmares about the other (job)? Yes,” says Bill Sanders, a Steamboat Springs, Colo., ceramics artist who is retired from the lumber and wood flooring business he owned for 20 years. He says he still wakes up sometimes in a cold sweat worrying about whether some shipment is making it to a job site on time. Then he realizes he doesn’t need to worry about that any-more. These days, Sanders, 64, keeps to the outdoors – he skis during the winter and volun-teers for the U.S. Forest Service during the summer – and cre-ates his artwork, which includes dishware, decorative pots and sculptured horses. He learned the basics of ceramics as a teenager living in Southeast Asia. He kept at it while growing his Honolulu lumber and flooring business to include eight employees and more than $1 million in inven-tory by the time he sold the company in 1997. Then, he and his wife, Barbara, also an artist, moved to Colorado, and he turned to his lifelong love of ceramics more intentionally. “Clay is kind of cool. It’s just dirt,” says Sanders. “If you don’t like what you did, you just throw it back in the bucket and then you can make something else.” Jennifer O’Day, 61, of Austin, Texas, is a former stockbroker who says her mixed-media art-work nourishes all her senses. “It really sharpens my ability to see visually and percep-tively and I think tactilely,” says O’Day. “It’s not just about my mind and my hand accomplish-ing something. It engages that whole mind-body-soul thing.” She was born into a businessoriented family, so that was in her blood, she says. The art she nurtured. “I wanted to do something that was closer to the bone and less about the money,” O’Day says about the portraits she now assembles. It’s not just about my mind and my hand accomplishing something. It engages that whole mind-body-soul thing,” she says. There’s one aspect of her old stockbroker life that she some-times misses: engaging with clients. Geri deGruy, 59, also enjoyed her previous career, as a thera-pist in private practice, although it was emotionally grueling working with many of her cli-ents, who were abused women. “Toward the end of my practice, there was a feeling sort of like PTSD,” she recalls. She turned from being a therapist to the textile arts, which required that she slow down. “I started seeing form differently. I started seeing repetitive patterns,” says deGruy, who creates small art quilts and mixed-media collages. “My eye was developing, my seeing was changing.” She still works every day.“Always our time is short – we never know,” deGruy says. “I have that urgency every day. I don’t want to waste this moment. I don’t want to miss this opportunity to play with color.”Could you start a new career as an ARTIST?

Working in lumber and wood flooring for 20 years, Sanders honed the ceramic skills he learned as a teenager growing up in the Philippines after selling his busi-ness in the late 1990s. Now living in Steamboat Springs, Colo., with his artist wife, Barbara, Sanders, 64, creates ceramic sculptures, such as the horses featured here.
