Holiday death toll up to 5 on area roads By STEVEN RICHMOND email@example.com The Florida Highway Patrol Friday said a third person died from injuries in a crash following a highspeed chase through Live Oak early Thanksgiving morning. Two more individuals died in separate auto acci dents since then, bring ing the roadway death toll to five in Columbia and Suwannee Counties since Thanksgiving Day. Live Oak resident Shiatera Wimbas, 20, was pronounced dead Friday morning following a high speed police chase down US 129 where two other occupants were killed and one injured around 1:00 a.m. Thanksgiving Day, FHP said. The driver of a 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, Lonnie Lavern Freeman, 20, lost control and crashed into a building on the cor ner of US 129 and Spruce Street Northwest, killing himself, passenger Patrelle J. Stokes, 16, and Wimbash, FHP said. Wimbash, originally list ed in serious condition, was pronounced dead Friday at 12:59 a.m., FHP said. No word was available on the condition of Kwone Levelle Matthews, 23, also listed in serious condition at Shands UF Health after the crash. All four of the cars occu pants were from Live Oak. Deputies responded to a disturbance at the McDonalds at US 129 and I-10 shortly before 1 a.m. Thursday, according to Suwannee County Sheriff Tony Cameron. Eight to ten individuals were harassing custom ers, and when management tried to talk to them they wouldnt listen they were loud and causing a prob lem, Cameron said. When approached by a deputy, four of the individu als fled on foot and got into the Monte Carlo, which struck another vehicle when speeding out of the parking lot. Cameron said deputies had to move the second vehicle before giving chase, which meant they were pretty far behind when the crash occurred. However, he said depu ties were close enough that Freeman could see the blue light and knew law enforcement was in pursuit. Cameron said the Monte Carlo was traveling at a high rate of speed but did not know how fast. FHP is investigating the accident. According to the Florida Department of Corrections Third occupant of fleeing car in Live Oak dies Friday. By AMANDA WILLIAMSON firstname.lastname@example.org A tiny black-and-white shadow, Miss Kitty sneaks through the offices of Covenant Pet Trust Inc., adjusting to her new space after her owner was admitted to a nursing home. Before neighbors and relatives of Miss Kittys owner heard of Covenant Pet, the little cat lived by herself for five months. Now, the Lake City-based organization promises that Miss Kitty will have a comfort able home for the rest of her life no matter who adopts her. Registered as a nonprofit in January, Covenant Pet Trust steps in to peoples lives, usually at the end, to carry out a pet owners wishes for their furry friend. We dont want to be mistaken as a res cue, said Kathy Wisner, a co-founder of Covenant Pet Trust, Inc. Were not a rescue. Our first focus is to keep the pets with their owners, and then to get with people who own pets to educate them about the need to plan for their pets. Too often, founders Wisner and Pam Taylor encounter stories of pets lost or euthanized because their owners did not take the time to ensure their pets would have a home in case of the unexpected. Once, a man dropped his deceased wifes Pomeranians at the shelter on the day of her death, said Taylor, formerly an employee of Lake City Humane Society. One was adopted, but the other, a fearful dog, remained. A couple weeks later, the womans daughter called searching for the dogs. She made arrangements to transport the remaining Pomeranian to her out-of-state home. The transport picked up her mothers dog, but she never received it. The dog became lost in the system maybe dropped at the wrong destination or maybe stolen to be sold to ani mal-testing labs. O ne of the things I saw with some of the seniors when they got ill is that one by one they had to give up things that they loved. They shouldnt have to give up their pets as well. Letting go of a friend Local group makes sure pets are cared for when owners die or become incapacitated. Reporter kicks off annual food drive By STEVEN RICHMOND email@example.com Monday marks the start of the Lake City Reporters sixth annual Community Food Drive, sup porting the Florida Gateway Food Bank and their efforts to feed those in need this holiday season. The thought of families in our community going hungry at Christmas is troubling, said Lake City Reporter Publisher Todd Wilson. Our staff wanted to make a positive difference and our readers have really stepped up to assist. We are always amazed by the kind ness of our community when there is a need to be met. Were excited to lead this food drive effort for the sixth straight year. The staff at the Reporter office (180 E. Duval Street) will be collecting non-perishable food items Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Friday, Dec. 13. Readers with subscriptions can leave bags of nonperishable food items in their Reporter paper tube or at the end of their driveway the night of Thursday, Dec. 12 to be picked up by carriers Friday, Dec. 13. No glass containers, please. Cash donations can be made by checks payable to Florida Gateway Food Bank. For more information, call the newspaper at 386752-1293. PETS continued on 2A LOCAL MERCHANTS RING IN SMALL BUSINESS SAT. By STEVEN RICHMOND firstname.lastname@example.org Locals and their outof-town family all turned out in droves to the Lake City Mall, looking for the best deals and bargains for Black Friday. However, many local shops put an emphasis on Small Business Saturday, an economic counterat tack to the consumer hysteria the day after Thanksgiving. John Woodley, co-owner of the family-owned and -operated JW Weaponry on US 41, offered custom ers discounts on every thing except ammunition Friday and Saturday. He described the days as some of the best busi ness Ive seen since our grand opening June 29. Vann Carpet One Floor and Home sales manager Matt Vann said their store was already doing to 60 percent better than Black Fridays previous years. He also lauded the ben efits of consumers shop ping locally and keep ing their money in their hometown. Ive seen studies that show money spent in local businesses recycles through the community about seven times. You dont see that with big national chains, Vann said. That money also goes toward local things like sponsoring school activities and youth athlet ics. Tout virtues of keeping money here at home.

The majority of people want to get their pets adopted, to find them a safe place for when their owner passes, Taylor said. So, they know that their pets will be taken care of. So far, Covenant Pet has helped 13 animals, includ ing seven cats and six dogs. Last week, the non profit earned its 501(c)(3) designation, meaning all donations to the organiza tion are tax-deductible. Planning for an animal doesnt have to be a con voluted mess, Wisner said. First, the program plans long-term for the animals. Based on whether the pet would live with a relative or be rehomed, Covenant Pet decides how to handle the situation after the owner is gone. Florida does have a pet trust law, so that makes it a little bit easier, she added. But it does need to be done appropriately. Were not a legal firm. We dont offer legal advice, but we do have access to forms that simplify it. We encourage people to take the forms to their attorney to make sure their pets are incorporated, so they dont get forgotten. Both founders witnessed firsthand the importance of what Covenant Pet does. As the only organization of its kind, it provides assistance to elderly or ill individuals who need help caring for their pets in the home, in addition to pre paring plans for pets when their owner passes. Taylors mother was diagnosed with lung cancer, but went into remission after a series of treatments. Her mother adopted a Chihuahua from the animal shelter, and named it Bruce after her oncologist. As it turned out, she wasnt in remission, but Bruce was really, really good company for her, Taylor added. It was neat to see how comforting he was. She was very con cerned about him, what would happen to him after she was gone, if he would think she had abandoned him. Taylor now owns the tiny Chihuahua she calls Dr. Bruce, after its namesake. In the past, she used to work for the Lake City Humane Society where she would see animals, such as the two Pomeranians, abandoned after death claimed the life of their owners. It was her mothers situation that really opened her eyes. Through Covenant Pet, she hopes to prevent as many animals as possible from winding up at the pound. When a pets been in a home, they are used to a certain level of care or attention and a shelter can be a very stressful environment, Taylor said. Once pets go into a shel ter and theyre depressed from losing an owner or a home, they wont eat. Sometimes they become fearful. They may react aggressively even when thats not their nature... and in a shelter, only the friendliest survive. To keep animals in their program from ever experi encing the shelter environ ment, Covenant Pet uses six volunteer foster homes to place animals. The organization is constantly looking for new fosters, estimating they need approximately 40 homes to meet future needs. According to Wisner, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals estimates 300,000 orphaned animals are surrendered to shel ters each year across the United States. Covenant Pets first adoption, Wolfy, origi nally lived in Jacksonville. His owner Sharon was diagnosed with recur ring cancer, which was believed to be in remis sion. Concerned about her animals, she contacted Covenant Pet. Sharon was maybe 90 pounds and obviously weak ened, Wisner said. Her dog was close to 130 pounds of Newfoundland golden Labrador mix. Beautiful, sweet dog, but Sharon didnt have a fenced-in backyard. He had to be walked. Wolfy found a foster fam ily through Covenant Pet, then he found a permanent home after Sharon died. While Sharon was alive, she communicated with the foster family who took care of Wolfy, exchanging e-mails, phone calls and pictures. She knew, prior to her death, that her dog would be taken care of. For people who are ill, Taylor said, what choices do they have? Covenant Pet helps. Wisner added her passion with Taylors to create the organization. Before starting the non profit, she worked with elderly individuals. The seniors would approach her and ask, If some thing happens to me, can you take care of Benny, or Molly or whoever, Wisner said. One of the things I saw with some of the seniors when they got ill is that one by one they had to give up things that they loved, she added. They shouldnt have to give up their pets as well. Its much better for the owner and the pet if they can stay together for as long as possible. The organization pro vides in-home service to help keep a pet in its home as long as possible. Covenant Pet helps with taking pets to the vet, delivering food or get ting the animal bathed. They do jobs the normal, but important, responsi bilities owners may not be able to do while they are sick. There is no charge for Covenant Pets services. To support the animals, Covenant Pet fundraises through monthly dog socials, special events and more. Sometimes founders Wisner and Taylor even contribute their own funds to the cause. On Dec. 14, Covenant Pet will hold a Flash Dog holiday walk, which is a play on a flashmob. The walk meanders through the Festival of Lights at the Stephen Foster Center in White Springs, and the entrance fee includes a cup of hot cocoa. Admission is $15 per participant with one dog, and $10 for every additional dog for the walk. Admission to the Foster Center is an addi tional $3 per person. For more, go to cov enantpettrust.org. By AMANDA WILLIAMSON email@example.com Winton Thomas never missed a base ball game, hog show or dance recital that featured one of his grandchildren. He spent his life helping his wife in their athome daycare and wiring houses for his five children. Through all the years, Thomas has earned the title of wonderful husband, father, grandpa and Paw to the many people lucky enough to call him family. On Wednesday evening, Thomas passed away unexpectedly while hunting white-tailed deer, a hobby that he loved, said wife Linda Gail Thomas. Funeral services for Thomas will be held today at 12:30 p.m. in the Orchard Community Church. He was very much a loving and caring man, who took care of his wife and family everyday, Linda Gail Thomas said. Born on May 17, 1943, Thomas was the son of the late Reuben Bascom and Minnie Bell Durrance Thomas. He loved the 33 years spent working for Florida Power & Light Co., Linda Gail Thomas said, and didnt realize until retirement how much he truly did love it. After retirement in December 1997, he worked with Norton Construction wiring houses on the side. When Thomas com pleted a house, he would turn the screws on every light switch and receptacle cover in the same direction. The trick meant he would be able to tell if anyone had been in the outlet or switchbox if he had to return to the house for some reason. One of his goals was to wire each one of his kids a house, and [he] was able to achieve that goal before passing, said his son Jason Thomas. Thomas is survived his wife of 48 years, Linda Gail, and his five children, Winton Russell Thomas, Jr., (Kathy) James Arness Thomas, (Sherrie Gail), Jason Wayne Thomas,(Michelle), Justin Lyle Thomas, (Michelle), Charese Hope Norton(Jack). Eight grandchildren Ryan, Kaleb, Joshua, Tara, Dylan Victoria, Weston Thomas and Braxton Thomas Norton. One brother Reuben Hugh Thomas. His close family friend Debra Parrish Evans and chosen granddaughter Joana Page Evans. He instilled in his children a legacy, but his passion lies with his grandchil dren, Evans said. He taught them how to drive the tractor, and he taught them how to hunt. She herself remembers lessons on hunting and hunting techniques, on respect and manners for the elderly and on the love of family. To her, Thomas was probably the finest hunter she ever knew. She remembers shooting an eight-point buck while on a hunting trip with Thomas about three years ago. Thomas, she felt, was more proud of that buck than of anything else she had ever done, Evans added. Thomas planted deer plots for his grandchildren and children so they could enjoy hunting with him. In addition to planting deer plots, he enjoyed planting corn, peas and rye, then watching the plants grow. As colder weather set in around the Thomas familys Lake City home, Thomas loved to have a fire burning in the fire place. Each one of us would come over and go straight to that fire, Jason Thomas said. There was only one negative. Having to get enough wood to carry us through the winter. The wood stack would be six-feet high and a mile long at least it seemed like that... In the past five to 10 years, Thomas started helping his wife bake her famous cinnamon rolls. Since the rolls were so popular, Linda Gail Thomas and her hus band frequently shipped them out-of-state on request. Thomas loved to carry his grandchil dren and the children staying at his wifes at-home daycare around the yard on the tractor. The kids loved it, Jason Thomas said. If they had never rode a tractor, they did while they were here, he added. A model family man, Thomas taught all his children to work hard and never to complete a task only half-way, said Thomas son Justin. He was always there to help them without complaint if they asked, and the answer was never no.

By AVALYN HUNTERSpecial to the ReporterG etting an education isnt always easy. Most students succeed in handling what is asked of them along the way. But for some, keeping up in school becomes a struggle. And for a few, the struggle is overwhelm-ing. As instructional coaches at Fort White High School, Bobbie Moore and Stephenie Busch know the intensity and pain of their students struggles well. Both experienced teachers (Moore has been in education for 38 years, Busch for 17), they are dedicated to helping stu-dents find their way to success in learn-ing. I really feel that teaching is a calling that God sends some people, says Moore. I think for me it started with reading the book Christy, by Catherine Marshall. I was a teenager then and it opened my eyes to the need out there. I wanted to help people the way Christy did in the book, by teaching. Moore, a High Springs native who holds a bachelors degree in elementary education from the University of Florida and a masters degree in reading from Nova Southeastern University, has been at FWHS since it opened in 2000. Until recently, she worked primarily as a read-ing coach, but this year her duties have broadened to assisting students having difficulty in any academic area. Reading is basic to everything, and a student who has trouble with reading usually has trouble across the board, says Busch, who became Moores co-coach this year. But sometimes you do get a student who reads well but has a specific problem with math or science, and were here to help with that as well. A lot of what we do is helping equip classroom teachers to help these students better; thats where I feel my train-ing in leadership is really helpful. (A native of Wellborn who now lives in Lake City, Busch holds a bachelors degree in elementary education from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University and a masters degree in educational lead-ership from Nova Southeastern.) Moore and Busch actually play two roles: providing a helping hand to their fel-low teachers, and identifying and assisting students who are having difficulty. Our main goal is to help the student in the classroom setting as much as possible, so we try to help the students teachers identify and make the accommodations the student needs, says Moore. Students who need assistance are identified through teacher observations and data obtained from the computer-based Performance Matters program, which assesses students in reading, math, and science three times a year. Once identi-fied, the students may receive help on an individual basis, in small groups, or through peer support, although the latter is necessarily limited because of the need to protect student privacy. The best thing a student can do is admit he or she is having trouble and seek out their teach-er, Moore says. We have free tutoring available at the school, and that will be expanded in January thanks to a grant we received that is allowing us to hire additional tutors. For some students those identified as having reading skills too low to func-tion at the middle school level a more structured intervention is needed. Thats where the Reading to Work program comes in. The students take it in place of one of their electives, Busch explains. Its an FCAT-based program in which they read stories and then answer ques-tions about those stories to improve read-ing skills and comprehension. Despite teachers best efforts, some students do drop out with their problems still unremedied. But this doesnt have to be the end of the story. In addition to high school diploma and GED prepara-tion courses, Columbia County offers adult basic education courses aimed at improving reading and math skills. Interested individuals can learn more about these options through the Career and Adult Education Centers website (www.columbia.k12.fl.us/adulted/adult-education.html) or can call the Center at 386-755-8190. The information desk at the public library is also a good resource. Ultimately, the goal of instructional coaching is to enable students to succeed without it. The key is really self-own-ership, says Moore. We do the best we can to find material the students are interested in thats on their level, and that often isnt easy. But its the student who has to take the time to read and to learn perseverance in working through prob-lems. And parents can be a big part of it. When they take time to sit down and read with their children, they help show that reading is both important and fun. If the parent cant read well, he or she can still help by encouraging their student and treating their accomplishments as impor-tant. When a child succeeds, we all win.

INSTRUCTIONAL COACHES website, Freeman served four years in prison for rob-bery with a deadly weapon and burglary in Suwannee County in 2008. He was released from prison on Nov. 23, 2012 and arrest-ed in Suwannee County in March 2013 for violation of probation. Matthews served 18 months in prison on a 2010 conviction for the sale of cocaine and was currently on probation, the website said. Lake City resident Rose May Franks, 81, and Branford resident Jeffery J. Stacy, 24, were killed in separate automobile acci-dents Friday, according to FHP. Chad E. Driskell, 24, was driving a 1994 Ford with Ashley V. Lord, 22, on CR 242A around 2:50 a.m. Friday in Columbia County when they struck Franks, who was walking in the eastbound lane, the report said. Driskell said he failed to see the pedestrian in time to avoid the crash, accord-ing to the report. FHP did not know why Franks was walking in the road. Troopers also indicated Driskell was not under the influence during the inci-dent. Charges are pending an investigation still under-way. Stacy was killed in a single vehicle accident at the intersection of 43rd Road and 280 Street in Branford around 10:30 p.m. Thursday, FHP said. Troopers pronounced Stacy, the passenger, deceased on scene after finding him in a 1996 Mercedes sedan that left the road, struck several pine trees and came to rest in a thick wooded area, according to a media release. Fort White resident Erin Trusty, 21, was also a passenger and sustained seri-ous injuries, the release said. Neither Stacy nor Trusty were wearing seatbelts, according to the report. FHP said the driver, Adam James Hughes, 27, Obrien, fled the scene fol-lowing the accident but later turned himself in. Hughes was taken into custody Friday at 5:45 p.m., FHP said. He was charged with leaving the scene of a crash involv-ing death and/or serious bodily injury.

BY EMAIL: email@example.com Taking care of your pets after youre gone TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1824, the presidential election was turned over to the U.S. House of Representatives when a dead lock developed between John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, William H. Crawford and Henry Clay. (Adams ended up the winner.) In 1860, the Charles Dickens novel Great Expectations was first published in weekly serial form. In 1909, the first kibbutz was founded in the Jordan Valley by a group of Jewish pioneers; the collective settlement became known as Degania Alef. In 1910, The Miami Herald was first published under that name (it was known under previous ownership as the Miami Morning News-Record). In 1921, the Navy flew the first nonrigid dirigible to use helium. In 1934, Soviet communist official Sergei M. Kirov, an associate of Josef Stalin, was assassinated in Leningrad, resulting in a massive purge. In 1941, Japans Emperor Hirohito approved wag ing war against the United States, Britain and the Netherlands after his government rejected U.S. demands contained in the Hull Note In 1955, Rosa Parks, a black seamstress, was arrest ed after refusing to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery, Ala., city bus; the incident sparked a year-long boycott of the buses by blacks. Fracking outgreens green energy A constant, mild hiss. That was my chief observation when I returned to Anadarko Petroleums Landon Pad A, a natural-gas site in Lycoming County, Pa. Octobers quietude was totally unlike the cyclone of equipment, personnel, and activity that dominated this spot last June, when Anadarko and the American Petroleum Institute hosted journal ists and policy analysts here. Back then, engineers used a pressurized blend of 90 percent water, 9.5 per cent sand, and 0.5 percent chemi cals to shake subterranean shale deposits and awaken natural gas that has slumbered since the dino saurs died. This hydraulic fractur ing or fracking occurs some 6,000 feet underground. This is 5,000 feet beneath the water table deep enough to bury three Empire State Buildings. This spot now resembles the scene of a once-raging party that has been cleared out and cleaned up. The trucks have driven off. Dozens of workers have moved on. The cranes are gone. What remains are three acres of gravelcovered farmland, five completed wells, and a steady, low-volume whoosh. This is the sound of natu ral gas being captured; counted by a cash register gauge that mea sures output and, thus, royalties; and conveyed via yellow pipes into the broader natural-gas market. The result? Warm bedrooms on crisp nights and hot showers on cold mornings. Despite the shrill complaints of fracking foes, this productive-buttranquil patch demonstrates how much greener fracking is than other power sources even green ones. -Fracking should please those who fret about CO2. Since 2002, carbon dioxide out put has grown 32 percent globally, Manhattan Institute senior fellow Robert Bryce wrote for September 20s Bloomberg View. In the U.S., meanwhile, carbon dioxide emis sions were 8 percent lower in 2012 than they were in 2002, largely due to a surge in shale gas pro duction, which has reduced coal use. Indeed, fracking has helped America keep its unratified Kyoto Protocol commitments while other countries decry so-called global warming, yet continue boosting CO2. -Water is a precious resource. So, conservationists should smile at how little water frack ing requires versus other energy sources. According to the U.S. Energy Department and the Ground Water Protection Council, it typically takes three gallons of water to produce 1 million British Thermal Units of energy from deep-shale natural gas/fracking. Nuclear power requires 11 gal lons/million BTUs. Coal: 23 gal lons. Corn ethanol? A whopping 15,800 gallons. And soy biodiesel requires nearly triple that amount: 44,500 gallons per million BTUs 14,833 times the water needed for fracking. But what about ground water pol lution? The hysteria that fracking poisons drinking water lacks one key ingredient: Evidence. As former EPA chief Lisa Jackson testified before Congress in May 2011: Im not aware of any proven case where the fracking process itself has affected water. -Protecting habitat is another key eco-priority. Fracking suc ceeds here, too. An SAIC/RW Beck study found that natural gas companies use 0.4 acres of land to generate a years supply of electricity for 1,000 households. Nuclear power requires 0.7 acres. Coal consumes 0.75 acres. Wind power needs six acres. And, solar cells require 8.4 acres to fuel 1,000 households annually. This is 21 times natural gas habitat impact. So, if you are a Gila mon ster or a Joshua tree, cheer frack ing and hiss solar. Environmentalists should embrace natural-gas fracking for being easy on the air, water, land, and wildlife in most cases far more than the sustainable energy sources that ecologists adore. Our Food Drive needs your help A re you still stuffed from Thanksgiving dinner? Have you reflected on the bounty of your fam ily, your surroundings, your life? Are you filled with bless ings? Dont let this feeling pass with out assisting others. We need your help! The Lake City Reporters Sixth Annual Community Food Drive begins on Monday and weve set a goal to fill our 24-foot delivery truck with donated food items for needy families in Columbia County. Were asking our readers for assistance, so that we may help those less fortunate in Columbia County. Its simple: We need your donation of non-perishable food items. Bring canned goods or boxed dry goods to the Lake City Reporter office (180 E. Duval St., downtown, across from the courthouse) and well load it and deliver it to the Florida Gateway Food Bank. The Food Banks par ent organization, Catholic Charities, will make sure the food stays in Columbia County and is dispersed to our local residents in need. Our food drive is a quick push to help those less fortunate. It runs from tomorrow through Friday, Dec. 13. On that Friday morning, our newspaper carriers will pick up any remaining donations our sub scribers leave by their newspaper tubes or in bags at the end of their driveways. We launched this food drive six years ago when we learned of the great need during these two weeks to replenish the Food Bank. There is an abundance of food donated to the Food Bank before Thanksgiving and many food baskets are assem bled and distributed to families in our region. The turnaround time between Thanksgiving baskets and Christmas baskets was too quick and supplies were scarce. There wasnt enough food to meet the need of those less fortunate in our community. The thought of families in our community possibly not having the means for a proper Christmas din ner did not sit well with our staff. Strong community newspapers focus on challenges in their com munities and lead for change. Our staff at the Lake City Reporter wanted to get involved and improve the situation and we asked our readers for assistance. The food drive is a growing suc cess and that credit goes to our readers. Our loyal customers come through every year and we appreci ate how everyone helps us respond to the need of hungry families in Columbia County. Please give what you can. A bag of canned goods, dry boxes of food, anything non-perishable will make a difference. The only restriction is no glass containers, please. If you want to write a check and donate that way, please make it to Florida Gateway Food Bank and drop it by our office. Bring your food items to the Lake City Reporter anytime dur ing normal business hours during the next two weeks. The blessing you pass along will come back to you tenfold. Thanks in advance and Merry Christmas! Y ou cant take them with you, but you can be sure your pets are properly cared for after youve passed on. Thats thanks to Kathy Wisner and Pam Taylor and their Lake City-based non-profit, Covenant Pet Trust. As described in a story on todays front page, Covenant Pet, among other things, helps pet owners plan for their furry friends well-being in the event of their own death. Its a great idea, and unique in the nation to our knowledge. Beyond that, the group helps the criti cally ill keep and care for their pets for as long as humanly possible. Its a beautiful humanitarian gesture, and were not surprised it took two local folks to think of it. Fine job, ladies.

During an Oct. 21 meet ing, City Manager Wendell Johnson introduced the idea of a creating a Special Magistrate position that would effectively have the same status and authority as the current seven-mem ber Code Enforcement Board. Johnson said in an Oct. 17 memo that the Special Magistrate would create a more meaningful due pro cess and... the most effec tive means for enhanced service and code compli ance. However, the ordinance under discussion Monday night would allow the city to create the new position while also retaining the Code Enforcement Board. My understanding is that well have one or the other, Mayor Stephen Witt said. We wouldnt have to go back and redo it if some thing doesnt work out with the new position. We talked about the possibility keep ing the board but not hav ing people on it. Witt and Johnson agreed in the Oct. 21 meeting that a code enforcement board, as far as Lake City is con cerned, can be cumber some and that filling vacan cies has become problem atic. According to the pro posed ordinance, the Special Magistrate would have at least five years of law experience and good standing with the Florida Bar. He or she would not technically be an employ ee of the city, but rather compensated for his or her services through a future resolution presented before the council. The council will discuss this and other matters fol lowing the annual lighting of Olustee Park at 5:30 p.m. City council is slated to have their regular meeting at City Hall downtown on Monday at 7:00 p.m. SALES Continued From 1A Olustee Park set to shine The Christmas lights in Olustee Park in downtown Lake City will on turned on Monday evening. The ceremony is set for 5:30 p.m.

Contact Tim Kirby Sports Editor 754-0421 email@example.com By TIM KIRBY firstname.lastname@example.org GAINESVILLE It was a day at The Swamp that was much more chop than chomp. Florida State did the expected with a 37-7 win over Florida to cap off a 12-0 season. The Seminoles now get to take on Duke in the ACC championship game and are one win away from playing for a national title. I was pleased we were able to finish off the season in the right way, FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher said. I am happy for the players, coaches and fans for the way we played in a tough place. Florida kept it close for 20 minutes, as its defense held the Seminoles to a 49-yard Roberto Aguayo field goal until early in the second quarter. Despite being pinned at their 4-yard line, the Seminoles rolled 96 yards in 12 plays. Florida State converted a third-and-26 with a pass from Jameis Winston to Kenny Shaw for 27 yards. Later, on second-and-20, Winston hit Kelvin Benjamin for 23 yards. On the next play, Benjamin took a slant pass and ran through four tack lers to score from 45 yards out at 4:24. We overcame two pen alties and a third-and-long and our confidence start ed growing, Fisher said. That third-and-26 got the whole momentum going. Offense is about rhythm and we couldnt get into that flow. Once we got that, things loosened up. Benjamin was just getting started. On Florida States next series, he caught a 29-yard touchdown pass. Benjamins day was a season for Florida receiv ers. He had nine catches for 212 yards and three touchdowns. Kelvin can be a very special player, Fisher said. He puts his time in the playbook. It is unique because all our skill guys are very intelligent. We dont care which way the coverage goes. Getting the ball vertical was the key to the game. Winston did nothing to hurt his Heisman chances. He finished 19 of 31 for 327 yards. His interception on the opening drive was a tipped-ball fluke. Jameis competitive ness is ridiculous, Fisher said. The more heated it becomes, the better he gets. The more he gets banged, he jumps right back into the fight. His ability to learn BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City Reporter Former Columbia High player and current Florida State Seminole Timmy Jernigan Jr. urges the Florida crowd to bring on the noise in Florida States 37-7 win on Saturday in Gainesville. GAINESVILLE I ts dirty work and it takes somebody special to do it. Lake City native Timmy Jernigan Jr. is an interior lineman on defense for the Seminoles. The junior has started every game this season, and played most downs on Saturday. Watch him in the middle and you see double-teams, triple-teams and cut blocks to get him out of a passing lane. Fighting a double-team on one play Saturday, Jernigan had his helmet ripped off. Its nasty down there, Jernigan said after the game. It is what youve got to expect when you dominate. Its a group effort and it helps to free up others. Jernigan gave the Gators props all week and was magnanimous in victory. We knew it would be a tough fight coming in, Jernigan said. You can throw the records out and that is the mindset we had to come in with. Beating a non-ACC opponent, especially Florida, was special for Jernigan. It is fun to play a team outside of the conference, especially one as talented as Florida, he said. It is another chance to prove our point. It means a lot from a personal standpoint, growing up 20 minutes from here. Jernigan entered Saturdays game with 25 solo tackles and 18 assists including 4.5 sacks and 10.5 tackles-for-loss.

Keeping Florida off the scoreboard until the Seminoles offense got rolling is part of the regular plan. Were a team, Jernigan said. We dont get frustrated with each other. We fight together. It was a tough first half, but when we get in that situation in the future we will know how to handle it. With an ACC championship game against Duke and a likely spot in the national championship game, that future is bright. 12-0 hasnt been done in a long time here, Jernigan said. We always want to stay hungry and not let up on anybody. Thats what our coaches teach us. Jernigan is No. 8, as is running back Devonta Freeman on offense. So, what is going to happen if they want to retire the number? I dont mind sharing it with him, Jernigan said. Hes a good player. Taking the season a week at a time has worked for the Seminoles and Jernigan has the same approach for a potential future in professional football. It is in the back of my head, but it wouldnt be fair to my teammates if I only thought of myself, he said. Jernigan is a Columbia High graduate and has his family here. I thank the Lake City folks for supporting me through a long journey, especially some of my old teachers at CHS, Jernigan said. I appreciate it. Q Tim Kirby is sports editor for the Lake City Reporter. Return to glory: Auburn beats Alabama, 34-28, on missed kickAssociated PressAUBURN, Ala. Chris Davis raced 100-plus yards with a missed field-goal attempt for a touchdown on the final play to lift No. 4 Auburn to a 34-28 vic-tory over No. 1 Alabama on Saturday. Davis caught the ball about 9 yards deep in the end zone after freshman Adam Griffiths 57-yard attempt fell short. He then sprinted down the left sideline and cut back with nothing but teammates around him in a second straight hard-to-fathom fin-ish for the Tigers (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference). Auburn clinched a spot in the SEC championship game with the stunning victory over the two-time defending national cham-pions. The Crimson Tide (11-1, 7-1) seemed at sev-eral times poised to con-tinue its run toward the first three-peat in modern col-lege football. Instead, the Tigers put it away just when overtime seemed their best hope.2BSPORTS JERNIGAN: Thanks Lake City fans Continued From Page 1B BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterLake City native Timmy Jernigan warms up before Florida States 37-7 win over Florida on Saturday in Gainesville.

Hunter Joyer scored Floridas only touch down on a pass from Skyler Mornhinweg at 13:39 of the fourth quarter. The defense played outstanding, Fisher said. They tackled well in space. Devonta Freeman had an 11-yard touchdown run for the Seminoles late in the third quarter. Benjamin added his third touchdown catch in the fourth quarter and Agauyo finished with three field goals.

The 110th game between Ohio State and Michigan might have been the most thrilling, a back-and-forth affair that came down to one final play. The Wolverines went for the win and the Buckeyes stayed undefeated. Tyvis Powell intercepted Devin Gardners 2-point conversion pass with 32 seconds left and No. 3 Ohio State held on for a 42-41 victory against Michigan on Saturday as one of the greatest rivalries in sports added another memorable chapter to its storied his tory. Thats an instant clas sic, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said. Gardner threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Devin Funchess to make it 42-41, but instead of kicking for the tie and possibly push ing the game to overtime, Wolverines coach Brady Hoke asked his players if they wanted to go for it and got a unanimous response. We played the game to win, Hoke said. Gardner tried to zip a pass to Drew Dileo into traf fic near the goal line, but Powell came up with it and the quarterback was left lying on his back with his arms extended to his side. 4BSports On Friday, December 13th Carrier Food Pick Up Day To participate, simply leave a bag of non-perishable food at your Reporter paper tube or the end of your driveway Thursday night, Dec. 12.

Send it to us with Foolish Trivia on the top and youll be entered into a drawing for a nifty prize! A huge dividend yield that seems too good to be true usually is, because its probably due to the stock having plunged in price, with few investors believing in it. If an industry enters a downswing, as hap-pens in cyclical industries and during economic crises, there may not be any earnings to distribute, leading to dividend cuts or suspensions. Auto-makers and banks have been good examples of that not too long ago. Companies with checkered histories of dividend payments arent the strongest candidates for invest-ment especially in a bear market, when external factors may strain their resources. Fortunately, many companies sport long dividend histories, demonstrat-ing their reliability. Colgate-Palmol-ive, for example, has paid a dividend each year since 1895! A companys payout ratio calculated by dividing the annual dividend by earnings per share reflects the sustainability of its dividend. If a company is paying out more than its making, thats not a good sign. To see which healthy and growing dividend payers weve recommended (many with yields topping 5 percent), take advantage of a free trial of our Motley Fool Income Investor news-letter at incomeinvestor.fool.com K_\Dfkc\p=ffcKXb\ Everyones All A-TwitterSocial media darling Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) debuted on the stock market via an initial public offering (IPO) on Nov. 7. Inter-est in it has been great, but is it a stock to buy now? Opinions differ. Twitter is attractive to many for its growth prospects. It has been growing its revenue (mostly from advertising) at triple-digit rates lately, and its profit margins are growing. Its business is rather capital-light, too, as it can expand without building expensive new factories or stores, or having to hire gobs of new workers. Hopes are high for international expansion, although the majority of Twitters users already come from abroad and contribute only about a quarter of its revenue. On the other hand, keep in mind that Twitter is still unprofitable, and that its recent valuation is quite lofty. Rapid growth rates do decline over time, and its growth in U.S. users is already slowing. Much of its potential lies in how well it monetizes its users. A sensible approach with Twitter, as with many freshly minted stocks, is to wait for the dust to settle, as high-flyers often come down to earth, at least for a while. Aim to buy only when the stock seems to be valued at significantly less than you think it will be worth in the future.

Well, while working for a telecom carrier, I came in contact with their products (Ethernet network switches) and found them to be very advanced. Based on my experience in the field, I bought in on Extreme my first stock purchase, ever. The stock didnt do much for about half a year, so I sold 90 percent of my holdings for a mere 2-cent gain per share. Shortly afterward, the announcement came that Extreme Networks purchased Enterasys. The stock skyrocketed. The remaining shares are now the best performing ones in my portfolio. N., online The Fool Responds: You were smart to seek promising invest-ments within your field of famil-iarity, but investing success often requires patience, as well. When a stock is stalled, but you still have confidence in the companys health and long-term growth prospects, hanging on is often the best. It can sometimes take a while for a stocks current value to catch up to its intrinsic value. If you doubt a companys future, though, its smart to seek alternative investments in which you have more faith.Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1-7, 2013 3CStatePointIf you ever work from home or plan to, there are many things you need to consider to make sure your home office is conducive to productivity. From prevent-ing technological snafus to dealing with the social realities of working where you live, preparing yourself for the home office experi-ence is important.Stay FocusedWorking from home provides flexibility and work-life balance. But the flip side of the coin is a risk of distraction. Stay on task by planning your day in the morn-ing, setting strict working hours, and sticking to the rules you create -such as no television or personal calls during the day. Make sure your family and friends know that working from home is not synonymous with an extended vacation.Protect Your WorkWhen you work in a central office, you rely on your companys tech sup-port team to protect your work and data. But when you work from home, you may not have that luxury. Over half of all small busi-ness owners have had to redo work due to a lost or deleted file, according to recent studies. Protecting your work against data loss can be a challenge. And while many home-based workers and small business owners are concerned about data loss, most arent taking full advantage of what is known as cloud computing. These days, you can back up all of your data securely on the Internet so you are covered if your personal computer goes down. New technology is making data protection an easy, affordable investment.Stay Connected Many people dream of working from home to avoid long commutes, co-worker distractions and other office pitfalls, but once they start, they real-ize that it can be a lone-some prospect. You can combat workfrom-home loneliness with a bit of structure, however. Make full use of your lunch hour by using the time to run errands, have a lunch date with a friend, hit the gym or otherwise break up the day with conversation and interaction. Also, dont be shy about picking up the phone or using Skype to touch base with colleagues, versus sending an email. While you may not be dealing with traffic jams and chatty cubicle neigh-bors, working from home comes with its own set of challenges. Preparing for them can make the expe-rience more productive, happy and fulfilling.StatePointIts not just individuals who can benefit from New Years resolutions. Businesses can also use the new year as an opportunity to reflect on how to improve in the year to come. With that in mind, here is a resolution checklist for small business owners: Get your books in order: Make sure to update balance sheets and compile income and cash flow statements. Evaluate goals: Did you meet your goals this year? What helped you achieve success? How can you improve the fol-lowing year? Clearly documenting your goals and making them acces-sible to your staff will keep them top-of-mind. This can be anything, from bringing on a certain number of new employ-ees to hitting a sales goal or expanding product offerings. Once you`ve set your goals, devise a plan that will get you there, with monthly or quar-terly checkpoints, so you can ensure you`re on track. Protect data: Small businesses say that data is their most valuable asset. Are you adequately protecting it? Many small businesses only back up files once or twice a month, which can result in a tremendous loss. Cloud backup is the best way to ensure you get all your files back easily in the event of a disaster. Save yourself a headache and protect your files automatically. A secure and affordable ser-vice will continually create cop-ies of all your files and store them in the cloud. Once the files are backed up, you can remotely access them from nearly any Internet-connected device -which can help keep you connected in an emergency or when youre traveling. Make sure data protection is a key component of your end-of-year planning -it will help set up your business for success in the new year. Mitigate your current tax burden: Understand your tax deductions and book all deduc-tions before the end of the year. Implement new tax strategies to mitigate your 2014 tax burden. Remember, all business models are different. Consider consulting an expert tax analyst to find out whats best for your business. Be social: Explore new avenues for advertising. Social media provides an easy and inex-pensive platform for gauging your customers desires, brand-ing and getting the word out about your product or service. Theres no time like the new year to reassess whats work-ing for your company and what isnt. Take the opportunity to set your company up for a suc-cessful 2014.3CBIZtronic databases, she said.Were doing the same things, its just a little different format. Although lots of information is based and stored in cloud-based applications, Paulson said the library maintains a modern, up-to-date book and magazine purchase program. There are a lot of people who still prefer to use the book in their hands, she said. Sometimes its easier to find infor-mation in a book rather than [on] Google. The library also provides the traditional collection of books, magazines, newspapers and periodicals. People can also download e-books, Paulson said. We have different data-bases with different information. Doing genealogy searching is really popular right now and we have two databases that they can search for free. The library also has an auto repair database for do it yourself mechanics. We used to have all the big auto repair manuals, but we dont buy those anymore, Paulson said, noting library pa-trons can download the information they need. The manuals took up so much space and now we can use that space for other things. Not having to buy those paged books every couple of years has really saved us a lot of space. The Columbia County Library also allows residents who have limited or no computer access an opportunity to check on government programs that impact their lives such as the Affordable Care Act as well as unemployment benefits. The library offers an e-government pro-gram which allows the access. E-government is an unfunded mandate, Paulson said. There are no longer any unemployment offices in Florida, so we have been helping people get online to be able to submit their unemployment applications and come back and submit their weeks. We dont do it for them, but we try to help them get their food stamps and social security benefits. All these things now that people have to do online that they used to be able to call someone or go to an office and they can no longer do that. The Columbia County Library also offers classes detailing how to use key-boards and computers, how to access their unemployment forms. A lot of them dont have any experience with computers, Paulson said. Paulson said she and her staff familiarized themselves with the different applications, forms and formats so they would be able to help library visitors. Now with the Affordable Care Act, staff attended seminars on how to access the information and helping people connected thats what were really concerned with, she said. With the Affordable Care Act we wouldnt help them decide what insurance plan they should go with, thats stuff they need to do themselves, but we actually help them navigate the Website, which isnt working very well at the moment. The Columbia County Public Library System has approximately 27 computers in its three locations. Paulson said they library has information that residents can use as prospective employers or employees. There are indexes online that people can use for businesses and try to get help on writing a business plan, she said. Paulson said the library also utilizes information to help local residents who are seeking employment. Its just in general helping people learn where they can find a job, she said. A lot of jobs now you have to do an on-line application and a lot of people do not have experience using a computer and its a challenge for them. LIBRARYContinued From 1A New years resolutions for small businesses StatePointSome simple tips can help your small business prosper. For starters, get and keep yourbooks in order. What to know when you work from home StatePointRule One when working from home: Stay focused. Technology reveals what kind of shopper you areBy ANNE FLAHERTYAssociated PressWASHINGTON Advances in technology have never made finding deals this holiday season so easy or so creepy. Marketers and mobile app developers have developed creative new ways to help shoppers find what they want for less. But these inventive techniques also allow for more aggressive tracking of consumer behavior, whether buyers are on their work computer, a mobile device or standing in the grocery aisle. It also now includes the ability to connect that data together and with other personal information like income, zip code and when a persons car insurance expires. The goal is to monitor consumers online and off to determine exactly what kind of buyer they might be and how much theyre willing to pay. Retailers say these techniques help customize shopping expe-riences and can lead to good deals for shop-pers. Consumer advocates say aggressive tracking and profiling also opens the door to price discrimination, where companies might charge someone more online or deny them entirely based on their home price or how often they visit a site. You cant have Christmas any more without big data and marketers, said Jeff Chester, executive director at the Center for Digital Democracy. You know that song where Santa knows when youve been sleeping? He knows when youre awake? Believe me, thats where hes get-ting his information from. Consumer tracking has long been a part of American consumerism. Retailers push shop-pers to sign up for loyalty cards, register pur-chased items for warranty programs and note zip codes to feed their mailing lists. Online stores and advertising services employ browser cookies, the tiny bits of software code that can track a persons movements across the Internet, to analyze shoppers and present them with relevant pop-up ads. More recently, marketers have developed increasingly sophisticated ways to combine offline and online data that cre-ates detailed profiles of shoppers. They also are perfecting location-tracking tech-nology as a means of attracting new cus-tomers and influencing shoppers as they wander through brick-and-mortar stores. A major push encourages shoppers to agree to be tracked in exchange for a good deal. Brick-and-mortar stores used to balk at customers who used smartphones to compare prices at rival stores, but retail-ers like Target are now pushing their own mobile apps and offering in-store Wi-Fi. The mobile apps entice shoppers with cou-pon deals or ads as they move throughout a store, while in-store Wi-Fi is another way to track a consumers online movements. To further lure buyers, major holiday retailers including, Macys, Best Buy and JCPenney, have partnered with the Shopkick mobile app. If shoppers turn on the app while in their store, they can be rewarded with discounts or song down-loads for trying on clothes, scanning bar-codes and making purchases. Another app, Snapette, blends Americans addiction to social media sites with location technology. Aimed at women keen on fashion, consumers can see what accessories or shoes are creating a buzz in their particular neighborhood, while stores get a chance to entice nearby shop-pers with ads or coupons. Not all new technology tracking is voluntary. Stores have been experimenting with heat sensors and monitoring cell-phone signals in their stores to monitor which aisles attract the most attention. One product called Shopperception uses the same motion-detection technology in the Xbox Connect to pick up a customers movement, including whether they picked up a product only to return it to the shelf. In addition to analyzing customer behav-ior, it can trigger nearby digital signs offering coupons and steering shoppers to certain products. The company contends that the technology is less intrusive than other tracking devices, including security cameras, because a persons image is never stored and their movements only registered as a data point. Marketers also are learning to overcome limitations with software cookies. One tech startup called Drawbridge claims to have found a way to link a persons lap-top and mobile device by analyzing their movements online, enabling advertisers to reach the same consumer whether theyre on their work computer or smartphone. But how all that information is used and where it ends up is still unclear. The Federal Trade Commission has been investigating companies that collect and sell information on individuals by pooling online habits with other information like court records, prop-erty taxes, even income.

LIFE Sunday, December 1, 2013 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D Story ideas?ContactRobert BridgesEditor754email@example.com Lake City Reporter1DLIFE TASTE BUDDIES Genie Norman and Mary Kay HollingsworthTastebBuddiesLakeCity@gmail.comT hanksgiving is over and its time to get serious about Christmas plans. Decorating, shopping, cooking, entertaining, etc., etc. reach a peak as the big day approaches. We all cook special foods for our Christmas meals so let us add some more special recipes to your collection. Christmas would never be complete without CANDY. So, candy it is for this column. As our readers know, Genie grew up in Homerville and her home was a holiday gathering place for lots of Normans. Two of her aunts would always arrive with their box of homemade can-dies that they opened with pride for everyone to see and enjoy. They were really works of art and perfection. Usually there was fondant, marsh-mallow balls, fudge, peanut butter fudge and candied grapefruit peel. (Ugh! Genie never liked that one. It tasted as bad as it sounds.) That box represented many hours of cooking, beating, roll-ing and drying of each piece. Today we are so used to just buying candy at Christmas that we dont venture into making our own. Mary Kay, Genie and Pat Vanous (for-mer neighbor) began their own Christmas tradition by gathering in Genies kitchen a few days before Christmas to make candy for all three households and to have some fun time together. By the end of the afternoon the candy balls didnt look as good as they did when we started which was prob-ably due to the cold duck consumed. Children and husbands stayed away and we had some great girl time. So, we want to share three of our favor-ites. We spread waxed paper over the kitchen table to hold all the piec-es until they dried. So, start with that. Many people make Buckeyes but heres Pats recipe just in case you dont have it. BuckeyesQ lb. softened margarineQ 1 cup peanut butter, crunchyQ 1 boxes 10 X sugar Q 1 Tbs. vanilla Q 12 oz. chocolate chips Q block of paraffin, shaved Instructions:Cream margarine and peanut butter. Add vanilla and sugar. When com-bined roll into balls. Melt chocolate and paraffin in a double boiler, keep warm. Dip each ball into the chocolate and lay on waxed paper to dry. Use Sweet, sweet tooth TASTE continued on 3D By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comThanksgiving is over, the family has left and the fridge is packed with turkey, cran-berry sauce, mashed potatoes and more. Every year, those leftovers become a blur of turkey sandwiches. But, a fresh take can turn those holiday odds and ends into a meal even better than the Thanksgiving feast. Most of us cook more for Thanksgiving to ensure we will have leftovers, said Genie Norman, the Lake City Reporters Taste Buddies columnist. Theres so much going on with Black Friday and family gatherings for the holidays, so you dont want to cook anymore. According to Norman, there are all kinds of twists you can make to the leftovers to ensure theyre even more appetiz-ing. Some people even like the leftovers better, she added. For instance, she creates a unique sandwich by combining the turkey and the fresh not canned cranberry sauce on the bread, then using a panini press for added flair. She also said a shortcut is to make two pans of dressing on Thanksgiving day, then place the second pan in the fridge until the family wants a second meal. As she sits down to eat on the weekend after Thanksgiving, she warms the second batch to add fresh dressing to the meal without added labor. Recipes to reinvent Thanksgiving leftovers: Turkey Cranberry Pesto SaladPrep Time: 5 min(s) Cook Time: 1 min(s) Total Time: 6 min(s) Ingredients 2 cups cooked turkey meat 1/2 cup mayonnaise 1/2 cup dried cranberries 2 celery stalks, chopped 1/4 cup chopped pecans 3 tablespoons pesto 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper Instructions 1.

Its one of my favorite places to visit. Recently there was a Realtor con-vention I attended and my in-laws live there, so it made for a nice and con-venient trip. Ive been many times before and we tend to do a lot of the same things, like drive down to Half Moon Bay for dinner at the Chart House, except they are now closed. So this time we did some-thing new and when we drove down, Scott played golf at the Ritz Carlton courseit was a beauti-ful setting also where they filmed American Wedding. While he golfed, Frank, his Dad, took me up to Nicks, an old water-front diner where we shared crab cakes and cal-amari. Then he took me out to see the Mavericks. This is the surfing loca-tion outside Pillar Point Harbor where in the winter months the waves can crest between 25 and 80 feet and invitation only contests are held. It was a pretty awesome view, but you couldnt see these waves this time of year and especially without binoculars as the surfers paddle out miles from the shore line when they attempt the ride. Theres a great walking/hiking trail not far from where we stay at Scotts Dads house near the Presidio in Sea Cliff. Its called Lands End. Whats great about this trail are the views of the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge, the eucalyptus forest you walk through I just want to stop and breathe in all of the air here, the cliffs overlook-ing the Pacific Ocean and the historic Cliffhouse and the old Sutro baths. We did this trail twice dur-ing the last stay. Another old stand-by are the world famous Sea Lions at Pier 39. Weve visited here often and the sea lions never disappoint. They are always there put-ting on a show, barking and playing. The males seem to stand tall defend-ing their dock and it is fun to watch as another sea lion tries to get up on the dock to see the big guy knock him or her back off. This is often a high-light of the trip, followed by a nice meal at one of the many restaurants on the Pier. Our new activity on this trip was our morning walk across the Golden Gate Bridge. Now weve driven over it many times TRAVEL TALES Sandy KishtonEducational app helps parents track childrens behaviorAssociated PressDAYTONA BEACH If the phone rings at the end of a school day, parents might already know why a teacher is calling. Thanks to a tool that allows teachers to com-municate instantaneously about whats happening at school, parents can monitor their youngsters conduct via smartphone throughout the day. Several Flagler and Volusia county teachers use Class Dojo, a free web-site and app where students receive points for good behavior or lose points for misdeeds. Class Dojo was created using $75,000 from the 2011 Citi Innovation in Education Prize, awarded to entre-preneurs who use tech-nology to help educators. Hundreds of thousands of teachers worldwide now use Class Dojo, according to the website. Class Dojo is among a growing number of educa-tional apps more than 40,000 are available for the iPad alone. One teacher who uses Class Dojo, Christina Claudio, said the program brings out her students competitive streaks because they want to earn more points they can redeem for free incentives, like using the teachers rolling desk chair or sitting with a friend for the day. This generation of students, I feel, loves anything thats gamified if it feels like a game, theyre in, said Claudio, who teaches fourth-grade at Pine Trail Elementary in Ormond Beach. To help students feel more accountable, Claudio allowed them to customize their avatars. A savory way to change up your sweet potatoBy ELIZABETH KARMELAssociated PressAs much as I love mashed white potatoes, my favorite potato is the sweet variety. Ive been cooking and eating sweet potatoes as long as I can remember. And when I found out that they were loaded with vita-mins and other good-for-you stuff like fiber, I imme-diately thought... Heres a great excuse to eat sweet potato pie! Kidding aside, sweet potatoes are just as good if not better than traditional baking potatoes in savory applications. My favorite one-bowl meal in winter is a loaded baked potato. And I often make it with sweet potatoes. Around 5 p.m., I throw the potatoes in a 350 F oven. I find that a lower oven temperature keeps the skin from falling apart, allowing you to split the potato in half and load it up! However, it does take twice as long for the pota-toes to cook. This year, I have been topping my potato with sauteed kale, which not only looks stunning all that orange and green but also is a perfect complement to the sweet meaty potato. But thats not all. I also roast garlic and make it into a paste to flavor the potato, folding in just a touch of butter and a pinch of sage. I scoop out half of the potato, mix it all together, add half the MATTHEW MEAD /Associated PressMake your sweet potato savory by adding garlic and chi ves.

2D LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1, 20132DLIFEBy JODY KURASHAssociated PressZIPOLITE, Mexico Youre going to like it here in Zipolite, Daniel Weiner, the owner of Brisa Marina hotel said with a wry smile as he handed me the keys to my quar-ters. Youre not going to want to leave in five days. A few lazy days later, I began to realize why so many guests rent their rooms by the month. Whether its the laid-back vibe or the tranquil setting, Zipolite has a way of mak-ing people stay longer than expected. A sleepy town with one main street and no ATMs, Zipolite (pronounced ZEE-poe-LEE-tay) is one of many tiny coastal pueb-los that dot the Pacific in Mexicos Southern state of Oaxaca. Stretching from Puerto Escondido to Huatulco, the region is sometimes called the Oaxaca Riviera. The hippie crowd discovered Zipolite in the 1960s and since then it has slowly evolved into an offbeat tourist spot popu-lar with a certain type of visitor. Its pristine beach stretches two kilome-ters (1.2 miles) between two high cliffs at either end, and the crowd is fairly evenly split between middle-class Mexicans and free-wheeling liberals from across the globe. Old hippies, young adventure-seekers, and locals all mingle with a flower-child type harmony. It feels light years away from the areas of Mexico that tourists now avoid due to drug violence. Not only has the U.S. State Department spared Oaxaca from its travel warnings about Mexico, but Zipolite in particular seems lost in time, a place where visitors think noth-ing of leaving their belong-ings unattended on the beach and backpackers sleep in hammocks strung along the coast. Zipolite also has a few claims to fame. The climactic beach scenes in the Mexican block-buster movie Y Tu Mama Tambien, were filmed here. And its gained noto-riety as one of Mexicos few nude beaches, although the major-ity of sunbathers remain clothed. (Farther east, past an outcropping of rocks is the cove known as Playa de Amor where nudity is more openly practiced.) Mike Bolli, a retiree from Vancouver, Canada, says he has been visiting the area for the last 10 years without accident, issue or injury. I have only ever met the nicest and friendliest eclectic mix of locals and visitors its a great throw-back to the 60s, Bolli said. So its all good and safe from my viewpoint. Zipolite has no highrise hotels. Many of the beachfront structures are thatched-roof palapas, umbrella-shaped huts with no walls. Brisa Marina itself started off as a wood-en structure with a palm roof, but after a major fire in 2001 that destroyed 23 buildings, Weiner rebuilt it with cement. Visitors expecting a party-all-night Cancun-like atmosphere with fishbowl-sized margaritas and wait-resses in bikinis passing out shots of tequila will be disappointed. There is a night life here, but its nothing like that. Instead, folks gather on the beach in an end-of-day ritual to watch the brilliant sunsets. Many restaurants and bars offer live music and enter-tainment. And the only paved road in town turns into a carnival-like scene at night, with artists and jew-elry makers selling their wares, while musicians, jugglers and fire dancers perform for tips in the street. Zipolite after six is awesome, Bolli said, with all the dreadlocked kids hop-ing to sell their creations along with a great choice of different restaurants. Its not overcrowded but you can find a crowd if you want. Some of the most interesting diversions can found at Posada Mexico, an oceanfront restaurant. One night I watched a Cirque du Soleil-like acro-batic performance and another night I rocked out to Cainn Cruz, an amazing child guitar prodigy who brought the house down with his covers of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC. Adding to the groovy ambience is Shambhala, a spiritual retreat perched high on a hill in a bucolic setting. Tourists are welcome to hike up the resort*s stair pathway where a meditation point sits atop a cliff overlook-ing the Pacific. Shambhala advertises the Loma de Meditacion as a sacred location where visitors may experience a higher consciousness and oneness with nature. The cen-ter rents rustic cabins and hosts visiting artists and healers. The name Zipolite is said to derive from indig-enous languages. Some sources say it means bumpy place, a refer-ence to the local hills, and other sources translate it as beach of the dead, a reference to strong ocean currents. The beach has volunteer lifeguards and areas with dangerous cur-rents are marked with red flags. Weiner, who has a deep tan, a working uniform of board shorts and flip-flops, and a crusty, carefree sense of humor, splits his time between California and Zipolite. Hes owned his hotel since 1997 and estimates that about 50 percent of his guests are repeat customers. This gets us through swine flu times, protests, drug war scares, etc., he said. People come back knowing we are OK, and they tell their friends too. And sometimes they have a hard time leaving. As Weiner predicted, after a few days in Zipolite, I called the airline to change my flight. I had to stay another week.

You can take a bus or taxi from either airport. The closest bus station is in Pochutla, 20 minutes away by taxi or shuttle.MONEY: The closest ATM is in nearby Puerto Angel, 10 minutes by taxi. The nearest bank is in Potchutla. Most hotels will accept and/or exchange U.S. dollars or euros.LODGING: Brisa Marina offers oceanfront rooms with balconies and hammocks as well as less expensive court-yard options. Guests can also relax on the large beachfront ramada (shaded outdoor area). Nightly rates range from 200-650 pesos ($16-$51) depending on the season, http://www.brisamarina.org A spiritual retreat, Shambhala, offers lodging on the hill at the western end of the beach, http://shambhalavision.tripod.com/id2.html .DINING: Zipolite is home to an impressive variety of qualit y restaurants with many beachfront choices, including several authentic pizzerias and trattorias, thanks to a num ber of Italian expats residing locally. For a romantic candlelit e xperience on the beach with entertainment, try the restaurant at the Posada Mexico inn. You can enjoy the entertainment without dining there by spreading your blanket on the sand nearby. Tag readers are solving states crimesBy JOSE PATINO GIRONAAssociated PressTAMPA The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office recently got a tip a stolen vehi-cle had been seen near the University of South Florida. Investigators sent deputies to the area, found the car and arrest-ed the two men inside. Both were charged with grand theft auto. The tip didnt come from an alert citizen. It came from a tag reader that reads license plates from passing vehicles, a process similar to the one used to bill motorists on toll roads in Tampa Bay and throughout the state. Unlike that system, though, the sheriffs office tag reader sends the license plate information through the National Crime Information Center and Florida Crime Information Center databases. If a hit arises a stolen car, say, or a car registered to some-one with an outstanding arrest warrant the system flags that information for deputies. The tag reader is the latest weapon in a grow-ing arsenal of high-tech devices used by law enforcement agencies throughout the country. Police departments and sheriffs offices say the systems ability to pro-cess thousands of license plates a day is an effec-tive, low-cost way of solv-ing car thefts and catch-ing criminals. The notion, though, that the government is capturing information about the whereabouts of thousands of law-abiding motorists every day has raised privacy concerns. The growing popularity of tag readers prompt-ed the American Civil Liberties Union to con-duct a national study on the issue this summer. The real problem is what happens with that data that they collected about you, said Florida ACLU spokesman Baylor Johnson. Who then has access to that data? If you have done nothing wrong, there is no reason they should keep that data. Hillsborough Countys tag reader consists of two cameras installed on a pole at 15th Street and 122nd Avenue and has been in use for about a year.

DEAR ABBY: I am ready to explode. My father-in-law dotes on my 16-year-old daughter, who is his only grandchild. The biggest issue, aside from his overspending, is that he takes her to and from school every day and then expects to stay and visit. I have neither the time nor the inclination to sit and chitchat with him about the same old stuff over and over. My husband doesnt want to be involved. (He doesnt get home until after his father has left, any-way.) It would probably end up in a nasty fight. I want to politely make Dad understand that he doesnt need to come in every single day. I know he will think we are being negative or against him personally, and from past events, I dont want to come across in this manner. Please help. TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR TOO MUCH: Obviously, your father-in-law doesnt have enough going on in his life to fill his time. Things wont change until you manage to set some boundaries. It would not be negative against him if you had to go out and run errands or your daugh-ter had to do homework after she gets home from school. It would also not be negative, since you dont have time to sit and chat, to ask him to pitch in and help with the chores. You might also suggest that he do some volunteer work to fill his time. But you will have to schedule a time for him to feel welcome -perhaps a Sunday dinner -when your husband is home and can help to entertain his father.Adult son wont rent a car when visitingDEAR ABBY: We are the parents of two adult children. We have always lived below our means so we could save for college expenses and retirement. Now that our two sons have finished college (with no debt), we splurged and purchased two luxury vehicles. Our oldest son, Sam, lives in another state but comes into town for busi-ness and pleasure, and when he does, he wants to borrow one of our cars. Although Sam has a good driving record, we are hesitant to loan him one of them. He is no longer on our car policy and can well afford to rent a car. Sam is upset with us and says from now on he will stay with friends. I offered to share the rental expense, but my husband said Sam is an adult now and responsible for his own expenses. Are we being unreason-able by not letting him borrow one of our cars? CONFLICTED IN DALLAS DEAR CONFLICTED: You have been generous with your children. Many students finish college with a mountain of debt. It appears that Sam is less interested in what you have done for him than what you WILL do. Hes acting like a spoiled brat, and I hope you will stick to your guns because your husband is right. DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19): Dont take on too much. Spending on unneces-sary luxury items will cause stress. Do what you can to rearrange or fix up your per-sonal space on a shoestring. Your surroundings will have an impact on your emotional outlook. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Make plans and follow through. You have the energy and the know-how to make a big splash no matter what you decide to pursue. Romance looks inviting and will definitely spice up your life. Explore new pos-sibilities and living arrange-ments. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): An interesting partnership will develop suddenly. Dont pass up an opportu-nity to work with someone who has as much to offer you as you have in return. What you learn and the information you pick up will be valuable. +++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Plan to have fun. Socialize or invite friends over. Your hospitality will encourage love, romance and a closer relationship with the people you enjoy being with the most. A change in your living arrangements will bring you peace and happi-ness. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Dont give in to demands. Do whatever encourages you to be and do your best. A trip or visiting someone who you find comforting will put your mind at ease as well as help you find solutions to any dilemmas you face. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Dive into new projects with an open mind. Talks will lead to interesting input and the possibility of a part-nership that can help you out substantially. Romance is looking good, and plans to spice up your life are encouraged. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Dont let things fester. Address issues before you get to the point of no return. Too much of anything will lead you down a dark path. Address issues swiftly and keep moving until you finish what you start. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Expand your interests and indulge in guilty pleasures. Do some-thing that sparks your imagination and which will contribute to a meaningful relationship you have with someone who has talents that meld well with what you have to offer. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Stick to the directions youve been given or rules implemented if you are working with others or if youve been given a task that requires precision. Dont push your luck with author-ity figures or exaggerate in order to win favors. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Dont feel you have to make a fast deci-sion. Your judgment will be accurate. Mixing business with pleasure will allow you to connect with someone you want to collaborate with in the future. A love relation-ship will be emotionally and financially beneficial. ++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Dont take what others say or do person-ally. Listen carefully and be attentive, but follow through with your plans and make the changes that you feel work best for you. Personal matters are best kept secret for the time being. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Youll be attracted to something or someone who is very dif-ferent from what you have been accustomed to in the past. Personal changes will be encouraged by what you see and hear. Romance will improve a relationship that means a lot to you. +++++ Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Word SUNDAY CROSSWORD Across 1 Parade organizer6 Fake11 One-named singer with the hit/RFNHG8S 15 Pat gently5HFLSHDPRXQWBBBPDPDWURSLFDO drink) 20 Belittling*UHHWLQJV0V 5HWWRQ 24 Orwellian state25 Right angle7XUNH\LVQWRQH2QHZKRVGRQHWKH ,GRV BBBIXUWKHUUHYLHZ 29 Handle again?9HU\QLFH0V .HQQHG\ (LJKWIRUVWDUWHUV"0DUFKRUJ"$GPLUDOVLQLWV+XUU\XS0V %UHQQDQ /LWWOHELUGLHRU/LNHVRPHTXHHQV6SRUWVOHDJXH EDFNHGFDEOHnetwork 0DUNHWPDNHXS $EEU 6XPPHUPRQWKLQ France .LQGRIFDW)HDWXUHRI2]V :LFNHG:LWFKRIthe West &KHHUXS0V 7HDVGDOH $GYDQFHGGHJ58 Bearded one59 Title character in an $$0LOQHSOD\ 61 Person who holds SURSHUW\LQWUXVW $P,WKHRQH0V $QGUHZV" 6tDWVHD69 Shorties+XUUDK6FXEDWDQNPHDV
